The Real Way to Make A Living Online  -  The Life Of An Affiliate Marketer

Now we all have dreamed of having that rags to riches story happen overnight. You know, we buy into this online program, spend about a half hour to an hour setting it up that night, and then waking up in the morning in this ocean front mansion with that brand new Bugatti Veyron in the driveway. Most of us have come to grips on our search for the work at home dream, and found that this just isn't going to happen. On the bright side though, their is a real way to make a living online.

I can't promise you overnight riches, and as a matter of fact, I can't promise you riches at all.

What I can tell you though is that it is very possible to become rich off of working online. I can't promise you it because it's up to you, your ambition, and your work ethic to decide how rich you may become..and how fast. It's also up to your ability to follow instructions and get the right training from the right person/place.

So what's the job?

It's Affiliate Marketing. The online parallel to a salesman at a car dealership. An affiliate marketer is used to recruit people to a product, program, or whatever the buyer is selling and if their recruit purchases through the link the affiliate provided them with..then the affiliate will get a commission. Here's the best part though. If you are using the right place to promote (my personal place is ClickBank) your commissions can be as high as 75%! What car salesman do you know that makes more than his employer for the sale?

What you have to do as an affiliate to become successful:

Well first of all you're going to need training to introduce you into this field. Now, before I got started, I was really worried about how I was going to become successful within this field without any prior experience or knowledge. I, fortunately, stumbled across a gold mine of training for newbies, which luckily was completely free. This training is going to be key to building you a solid foundation that will make this a consistent money making opportunity, not a hit or miss type job.

Next, you're going to need a website. Don't freak out. If you are with the right training program, like the program I was a part of, this can be created in 30 seconds..for free. You won't need to know any code or have any knowledge in making a website, because all you will have to do is simply follow the template.

Third, you're going to need content for your website. Your website will have a topic on what it's about (called a niche), which is primarily going to be something you are interested in and will love writing about. This is key for your posts, credibility, and overall success of your website. If you love what you're talking about on your website, then you'll love promoting those products within that niche, making you an overall better salesperson with a greater chance to make more money. Starting to get the drift?

After that, you are going to need to drive traffic (get people to come to) your website. The more people that come to your website equals the more chance you have to make sales. This ties back into the content you will need for your website. Your viewers will be coming to your site because they love the same thing you love and want to read what you have to say about it. If they connect with whatever your niche and content about your niche says, then they will trust you. If they trust you, then you will have a better chance for them to buy whatever products or programs you are affiliate marketing on your website.

If this all seems like a little too much work for you, then maybe working online isn't for you.

This is a job. A real work at home opportunity. Once you establish the basis/foundation for your website you will start having to do less and less work, while your sales start to incline at the same time. You will always have to check your site daily, answer any comments, post some new things, and give your visitors the best experience possible to steadily keep your money rising.

To Sum It All Up

The real way to make a living online isn't to keep searching for the right get rich quick program, but rather to become an affiliate marketer, and sell programs and products that really work. It's not going to make you rich overnight, but it can make you rich within a year, even within 6 months if you are that ambitious and willing to work!
