Making Money Online: Affiliate Marketing For Beginners

Since you've arrived at this article, I'm assuming you've probably done some research on ways to make money online. I'm sure you've heard of MANY ways as this industry has an infinite number of websites, legitimate business models and illegal scams.

I've found that affiliate marketing is one of the most profitable ways to make money online. It is NOT a "get rich quick" type of business model, although it is possible. This is the type of business that you must study and work at consistently. If you come across a website that promises you will succeed without much effort, LEAVE THAT WEBSITE IMMEDIATELY. This is NOT possible.

Affiliate marketing CAN be a very easy and profitable way to earn a full time income part time BUT it is work. There are many aspects to it that you must do all at once to ensure that you are doing everything possible to succeed. This can be confusing, especially if you're a beginner, but do not fear…. There is hope in sight. There are many training programs out there that will teach you what you need to do, step-by-step!

When I was first looking into affiliate marketing, I came across many different training programs. When learning, one thing I noticed is that (because I didn't have a clue about the internet) I didn't understand WHY I was doing the tasks the company was telling me to do in order to succeed. This is because I didn't have the "Big Picture". I needed to see the effects of what I was doing to understand the whole process. Understanding the "why" helps me retain more of the information I'm learning, WHILE I'm learning it. I needed the "Big Picture". Then all the specific details on how to accomplish each task will make sense.

**There is a diagram attached that I've created to help you see the whole process.

I did it the hard way. I read everything and "tried to learn" then once I figured out the process as a whole, I went back and re-read everything and re-watched all the "how-to videos". That was ridiculous. In my search for different affiliate training courses, I did find a site that I recommend. It's called Wealthy Affiliate. Now…. they don't have this diagram but they go into point-by-point detail on the "how" to do each step you'll see in the diagram to be successful.

There is a community of affiliates on this site (some pro's and some just starting out) that will answer any question you have pretty much on the spot. It's free to sign up and it seems to be a "Stand-up" kind of company. I would check this place out first as I fear you may waste your time in the "infinite online money making search". I hope this helps.
