The funny thing is that if you want to learn how to make money with affiliate marketing, all the information is out there, and free. It's a crazy time to be alive when you can just hop on the internet and learn how to build a six figure business completely for free.
And that's pretty much what I've got going on here. These tutorials will teach you how to build a profitable affiliate website. I've been doing this for almost a decade now, so I know what I'm talking about.
That being said, nothing is every straightforward when it comes to building a business. As much as people want to sell products with a formula that works “every time”, in reality, it worked one or two times, and now they're selling an infoproduct. You are going to have to follow these tutorials, then tweak your process as your website and knowledge bank grows.
But it's all here. Everything I do to generate six-figures online. It took me about 18 months to go from complete n00b to $10,000/month. Some people get it done faster, but if you grind a couple hours a day for about 1-2 years, earning $100,000 per year online isn't an unreasonable expectation.
Do I have any secrets? Nope. However, my #1 recommendation to you is to sign up to the Wealthy Affiliate community. That's where I learned how to do affiliate marketing as a newbie back in 2010, and I still highly recommend them for anyone who's serious about building an affiliate business.
They offer a lot of stuff that will help you out, but mainly you should be considering joining for one reason: There's lots of help available. It's a community of likeminded people trying to build their business, and everyone helps each other out. The owners, myself, and many other affiliate experts publish exclusive content to the platform, and hang out daily to help you with your business.
The cost is $49/month, which includes WordPress optimized hosting. It's a pretty insane deal considering if you join through my link, I'll personally answer your questions while you go through the training. I earn 50% commission if you use my link, so you're basically paying me (a six-figure affiliate) $25/month for a mentorship.
Live chat, private messages, and topic-based forums with experts and peers willing to help you build and affiliate business is what they're offering. It got me to where I am today, and they can help you too. You can read my full review of their service to learn more.
Not ready to sign up? No problem. I've combined their knowledge with my own experiences, and created a full-on affiliate training course here on One More Cup of Coffee. Of course, it won't come with the 1-on-1 help you get inside Wealthy Affiliate, but it's a great start for anyone who wants to dip their toes into the world of affiliate marketing.
