How to Affiliate Marketing

I am going to help you with being able to set up your website Today. Not tomorrow, not next week, but starting a website today. Depending on your current knowledge of website building it might be super easy for you or might seem a little challenging.

A little definition of Affiliate Marketing can be found here.

If you have any questions please reach out to me as I want to help you in this journey of creating wealth from your computer. It is a marathon and not a sprint.

Best Place to Start a Website

For sure the best place to start a website, especially if you know nothing is Wealthy Affiliate. Now Why would I say wealthy affiliate.

  1. Support for your Website
  2. Teachers Support Network
  3. Idea Generation
  4. Keyword Tools
  5. Help from your Peers

Support for Your Website

When you first start and are clueless you need Help and Support beyond belief. Wealthy Affiliate Provides Videos and reading that will walk you through every step of your website development and give you encouragement along the way.

How many of your friends and family might think that you are crazy for trying to start an online business. The fact of the matter is that they might simply be jealous that you have the guts to start one.

The support in anything you do can help you through the tough times. Wealthy Affiliate has a 24-hour website support that will help you solve your problems. The support is through the roof with the service provided.

Teachers Support Network

Not only is the website support Amazing, but the Teachers Support Network as well. OK They actually call them Ambassadors as we all help each other with things along the way. Kind of like me helping you now to get started with your own online business.

There are plenty of other sites out there that will scam you for money to pay before you even receive any information. At Wealthy Affiliate there is no scamming they have free education to get you started with your feet wet and simply learn.

All this free content is so great that will get you excited to continue and progress even further to achieve that success in your online business. Again this is not a get-rich-quick scheme as it all takes time to build a site that will generate income while you are chilling on your couch.

Online Business Ideas for the Beginners

You say OK Jane, this all sounds great but I have no idea what I should do for my online business. Well I am sure that you have something in life you are passionate about and share with your friends.

Do you like shopping, pets, travel, sports, food, natural health? The choices truly are unlimited. At Wealthy Affiliate there is a video particularly about choosing your personal niche or subject.

Then once you have that subject it is all about building the content on your site. The bottom line on making a profitable website is directing traffic to you site to see your content.

Generate Traffic to Your Blog

You think sure I’m going to Blog and all of a sudden traffic is going to come to my site. Well if you are like me when I started my first blog 4 years ago then no shame at all. I had no idea what keywords are or how to use them for ranking my website for traffic. That is something that I learned at Wealthy Affiliate

The basis of generating traffic to your site is using keyword ranking to be picked up by the big search engines ( Google, Alexa, Bing, Yahoo, Yandex….) so they offer your content on the front page for people to choose to click on and see your information.

The tool that we use at WealthyAffiliate is Jaaxy. Jaaxy is amazing and will let you do more than just search for keywords. The greatest way is to explain it with this video.

Do you have to subscribe to Wealthy Affiliate to use Jaaxy Tool? The answer is No you can use it independently.

Jaaxy Tool

The greatest thing that you can do is share your passion of your niche or subject to help others. In sharing in genuine way you will quickly see that other people value what you have to say.

I first turned to working online when I was pregnant with my first child and laid off from work. I had no clue about affiliate marketing and now 5 years later I have encountered Wealthy Affiliate

Free Peer Support Training

What do I mean by peer? Let me explain it. Everyone at Wealthy Affiliate was in your shoes at one point in time. We all started out with the intention of finding an income online.

We all started out with

  • The struggle of setting up a website
  • How to generate Traffic to that website
  • How to Monetize that website
  • The Patience in waiting to see results

There are training videos and blog shares and an area to simply ask questions to the members of the Wealthy Affiliate. So the support and help that you might need will totally exceed your expectations.

So what is the bottom line of getting started

There is some free training and then you have choices of if you want to continue or not with Wealthy Affiliate. I have enclosed a visual chart to help you see that the costs encompass some amazing benefits and more.

If you choose to want to upgrade to Premium you can host up to 50 websites at Wealthy Affiliate. If you have done any research into the costs of hosting a website you will see that for one site for a year it can be roughly $49 a month on the low end and that is not including 24/7/365 support.

It also would not include all the education, support and keyword tools to help you along in this journey. And it will be a journey.

Start a website for free

That is right I want to help you in starting your website for free. You can 100% start a website for free using site rubix. You do not have be a member of Wealthy Affiliate to use site rubix.

Once you start the website the money will not simply just start rolling in.

You will need to:

  • have your site indexed with the Search Engines.
  • Create the Keyword Rich Content
  • Create Backlinks for your site
  • Test you site speed for better ranking

All of this takes time. My second site which is this one took 8 days to be indexed by Google. The ranking takes a bit more time. I will be working on this and if you follow once you join Wealthy Affiliate I will share my journey about the success and timing it takes along the way.

For many it will take 2 to 6 months of work before seeing the content that you create generate sizable traffic to your site to see income. Be Patient! It won’t happen overnight.

In one month I saw my Alexa Ranking on my first blog jump from 4.3 mil to 2.5 a jump of 1.8 million in 15 days. My traffic increased as well.

If you choose to start you online business with Wealthy Affiliate I will be here all along the way to help you in what I know which is growing everyday.

Best of Luck to you and please feel free to reach out to be in the comment section or on Wealthy Affiliate. If you have any feed back as well please let me know as this is here to help people just like you.

  1. This is a very good post. I too have just joined wealthy affiliate less than a month ago and it took me no time to decide to upgrade to premium. The support is truly awesome from the company and the community too. I hardly have time so I am just up on my training for now but I know the basics from reading posts like yours and I know there’s alot in store and I can’t just wait to explore. This is an accurate post and anyone can host their own site on wealthy affiliate and monetise it but like you said, it takes time and hard work and soon I’ll be dedicating more time to the platform myself. Overall, this is a great post and I’ll recommend 

    • Thank you Henderson. Yes it is a marathon and not a sprint. The training and support available at Wealthy Affiliate is only what someone could dream about in a service provider site 

  2. Right now I am on my first week of the premium membership of wealthy affiliate. I have not made any money yet but my website is up and running and I think I have like four articles on there and I am working on my 5th or maybe it is my fourth I’m not sure.

    I don’t know if I would have been able to get through all that initial stuff of starting a website without the walkthrough that wealthy affiliate provided. The training did not answer all of my questions and I had to find some of the answers on my own but it provided enough information to get me going most of the way.

    I am hoping to at least break even, in terms of earning more money than I paid in membership fees, within my first 6 months. Sometimes I feel like it will be hard to make any money because there is just so much other competition out there but other times I feel it is more possible.

    • Charles, know that it will take time for all your hard work to pay off and then it will likely be exponential. When you are feeling defeated reach out in the chat and there will definitely be someone at Wealthy Affiliate to help give you the motivation to continue. 

      Keep it up! Im going through it from ground up with this site and I am thankful for finding Wealthy Affiliate to her reinspire me.

  3. The support that you can get at Wealthy Affiliate is amazing.   

    So many people and websites try to make setting up a website sound easy.    I think I have tried at least three different hosting platforms.  I wasted my money on the three hosting platforms because I could never figure it out.   

    Wealthy Affiliate makes building a website super easy.    Plus, as you mentioned – Wealthy Affiliate offers lots and lots of training and help from the community.   (I’ve been a member for almost three years.)  

  4. Thanks for such a great article! I too use Wealthy Affiliate to learn how to affiliate market and host my website! It is so awesome to have all the tools needed to put affiliate marketing into practice, all under one roof! What is your favourite part about affiliate marketing, and how Wealthy Affiliate helps with that?

    • Kohl, 

        I think my favorite part is the positivity. If someone reaches out about a problem there is someone there to help. If you are feeling like the process is a struggle there will be a cheerleader to keep you on the path.

  5. Thanks for this informative post, it does seems like building an affiliate marketing website with wealthy affiliate is the best option for beginners, they have the best keyword search tool and that’s something I feel is definitely important for starting up a website that would rank high in google. I’ll surely recommend this to anyone looking for ways to improve in affiliate marketing.

  6. Well does wealthy affiliate really have all this in store? Looks to me like a lot. A friend told me about how one can make money on wealthy affiliate and I have reason to believe it might just be too much for one platform. Giving that much with just so little feet sounds unrealistic but I think I’ll check it out after reading this post. 

    • Henderson, one might think that you dont receive everything mentioned above but you do and more. It is truly amaxing a hosting site, an education site, a keyword tool all in one for a low monthly or annual fee. And free for the first 7 days. Definitely worth at least the first 7 days.

  7. This is a great overview of an amazing website. Wealthy Affiliate really does have some of the best benefits offered. The lessons are so in depth and helpful and the community of support is such an awesome thing to have. Everyone is so helpful and seemingly just waiting to help you succeed. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking to start their own online business.

    Great post!

    • Thank you Steve, yes there is so much benefit to the monthly fee than only a hosting site or only an educstionsite or just a keyword tool. You get it all for such a fair price.
