Working In Retirement!
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Dear Friend if you are one of the thousands of people who are now finding yourself having to Work in Retirement I know just how you feel.

My name is K. Les Baker and I find myself in that same very large boat.

I am here to tell you that Working in Retirement doesn’t have to be despairing or drudgery.

In fact I learned that working in retirement can be pleasant, fun, and profitable.

I found out that there are plenty of other opportunities for us Seniors besides working in retirement at Walmart or driving a school bus swapping hours for dollars.

Instead of standing hour after hour at the Front Door of Walmart checking bags to get paid barley Minimum Wage, how would you like to actually get paid every time someone purchases one of Walmart’s products while you are at home? That would be pretty darn nice wouldn’t it!

Affiliate Marketing!

A couple of years ago I discovered something called Internet Affiliate Marketing.

Since I had very little knowledge and experience with Computers or the Internet having come from a trades background and being 61 years young.

I really couldn’t picture myself actually every being able to do it and make money.

Finally I decided if I could just get some training that would walk a Senior like me with very Limited knowledge of computers and the internet through the necessary steps I could learn how to do Affiliate Marketing.

I did exactly that! I got some training and within a week I had my First Website up and running.

What Exactly is Affiliate Marketing?

It isn’t complicated! Not once you get some training.

There are Thousands of Companies who offer their products for sale on the Internet and they will pay anyone who Enrolls in their Affiliate Program a commission of Up To 75% each time a customer purchases a product as a result of their Marketing Efforts.

Even Sears and Walmart have Affiliate Marketing programs!

I found out you can learn how to use Email, Classified Advertising like on CraigsList, Social Neworking like Twitter and FaceBook or even Pay Per Click (PPC) Advertising to attract customers.

How Much Money Can I Make as an Affiliate Marketer?

That’s up to you!

Once you get some basic training like I did it is quite easy to start earning several hundred dollars per month.

There are a lot of NEW Affiliate Marketers who create a Five Figure Monthly Income within their first year. It just depends on your willingness to learn and work at it.

What are the Benefits of Affiliate Marketing?

The things I like most about Affiliate Marketing is that it enables me to not only make enough money to meet my needs in addition to Social Security but I can enjoy having enough income above and beyond my needs to take care of my wants.

I can choose to market Any Kind of Product I that I am interested in and believe will help someone with their need. It gives me a good feeling to be able to actually help people and get paid for doing it.

It doesn’t really cost much to operate an Affiliate Marketing Business! You can get a Domain Name and Website Hosting for less than $75 PER YEAR.

It gives me Freedom and Independence!

I don’t have to commute! That’s a Big one for me!

I don’t have to answer to anyone!

I could yack all day telling you about all the benefits but Affiliate Marketing is like a Prayer Answered to me.

How do I Learn More about Affiliate Marketing?

There are tons of Forums and Blogs on the Internet that provide information about Affiliate Marketing.

I would suggest you start off with a Free Affiliate Marketing Course to get started. Then as you begin to get the picture get some advanced comprehensive training.

My Conclusion!

Affiliate Marketing isn’t for everyone!

If you are a Senior and don’t think you are capable of learning new things I would settle for Bag Checker at Walmart. What one man can do another can do also!

I never dreamed of being able to actually make a living working in retirement and actually look forward to it each day.

I feel like Affiliate Marketing is a blessing and a Prayer Answered that I should pass it along to whomever wants to grab hold of it.

Working in Retirement doesn’t have to be something you dread doing. It can actually be a fulfillment!

Best of luck to you my friend,

K. Les Baker
