What Is Affiliate Marketing?

Become an internet marketing affiliate

Affiliate marketing is a simple but powerful idea.

There are thousands of companies all over the world that need help marketing their products online. And they will pay you substantial commissions to help them do that.

Some will transfer your earnings directly to your bank account, either directly if you're domestic or by wire transfer if you're in another country and some will pay straight into your PayPal account. No matter what, the payments side is totally in place. Affiliate marketing has been around for long enough to be mature in this area.

I can teach you how to become an internet marketing affiliate.

But is it easy?


Well, yes and no.

You have to build a website around a business idea, or niche.

You have to make the website look attractive.

You have to create pages on your website that discharge your legal obligations with regard to such things as privacy policy, affiliate disclaimer, medical disclaimer and so on.

You have to create engaging content that provides valuable information to the type of visitor who will be interested in buying the products you are promoting.

You have to find those products and get accepted into their affiliate program. To do that, you will have to show them the type of website described above.

If you thought that the above sounded complex and difficult, you are not alone.

But it doesn't have to be.

And the rewards can be massive. And passive. Earning money overnight while you sleep, whether you work or not.

Working from anywhere in the world with an internet connection.

All of this happens for the successful affiliate marketer.

What Do You Need to be a Successful Affiliate Marketer?

What you need is step by step help.

And an experienced mentor you can turn to whenever you encounter difficulties.

You get the first from the very best online training community called Wealthy Affiliate. They have been around for around 13 years and have over 400,000 active members.

It costs nothing to join and you won't be asked for your credit card.

You will have access to everything the program has to offer for a full 7 days. After that time is up,  you are offered an upgrade to Premium for $19. However,  you don't have to take the upgrade, and you can stay for as long as you want free of charge.

To stay a Premium member of Wealthy Affiliate, there is an ongoing monthly subscription of $49, less if you commit to 6 or 12 months. The training alone is more than worth it, but it includes fast, reliable and secure hosting for up to 50 websites, powerful SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and keyword research on tap.

When you join for free you are given two websites which you can build out to viable income generators. You will have access to top of the range training with lessons and walk-through videos that take you step by step through the process of setting up an affiliate marketing business with a website and ethical product promotion.

There is also an online bootcamp that walks you through promoting Wealthy Affiliate itself with generous, on-going commission.

The Live Chat facility allows you to ask questions all day long. No matter where in the world you live, there will always be someone who can help you out. The program support team are available 24/7, 365 days a year so you are never, ever left on your own.

In addition, I would be your personal mentor, standing by to help you every step of the way. There is no charge for this.

Wealthy Affiliate teaches you how to become an internet marketing affiliate. I could go on and on about what the program can and will do for you but it's your decision whether you want it badly enough. So, what about it? Do you want to make money at home badly enough to take the plunge?

About the author 

Phil Lancaster

I created this site with two things in mind.

One is to expose some of the many scams that abound in Internet Marketing. And also to review those that, strictly speaking, aren't scams, but over promise and under deliver. Many of these are directed at beginners, who have no chance of implementing the system that they are sold.

The other aim is to review and recommend products that I believe will be helpful to either the new or experienced internet marketer and to provide additional information that may spell the difference between failure and success.
