Welcome to this Post.

How to Be Successful with Affiliate MarketingNo doubt, because you’re here you have some interest in making money online and would like to learn more about Affiliate Marketing. And that’s absolutely great.

Affiliate Marketing is a method of earning income which has become extremely popular in recent times. It is also a great way to work from home, either part-time or full-time. In fact the number of hours working on affiliate marketing are your choice, not the choice of anyone else.

From experience, I can assure you there is money to be made in Affiliate Marketing. The number of hours worked are not the main factor to success. It is the desire to achieve, together with dedication, that makes for success with affiliate marketing.

Early Years of the Internet in Relation to Affiliate Marketing

It was during the 1990s the internet became available to the public. There is much history online about the beginning of the internet. However, that is not what this post is about. Therefore, I’m comfortable with mid-1990s being the early days of amazing advancement in technology. A technology that provides everyone who has access to a computer with the power to make money online.

Why I mentioned the early years of the internet is because of the tremendous and extremely rapid growth to where we are now, in 2018. For instance, we no longer need to travel miles or kilometers by public or private transport to do our weekly shopping. Nor is there a need to travel when it comes to shopping for events such as birthdays, Christmas or any other celebration. Options are now available. We can choose to purchase from brick and mortar businesses, or we can log on to the Internet, do our shopping and have it delivered to our door.

Success with Affiliate MarketingMaybe you are wondering why I mentioned the foregoing. My reason is, along with online advancement of shopping methods, there have been and still are advancements with how money can be earned working online.

One most prominent ways of earning money online is with Affiliate Marketing.

In past years I’ve read much skepticism about Affiliate Marketing. People have been disbelieving that money can be made by this method. Those who think like that are unaware of the true facts and benefits because of hearsay, or lack of interest to investigate and learn the practice.

Due to the way technology is now moving, many large businesses depend on affiliate marketers to promote their products. It can be seen that this trend continues to grow. In 2017 I was surprised to see large firms advertising for staff to manage the affiliate marketing division of their business. Information such as this can be seen on Google Alerts.

So, How to Be Successful with Affiliate Marketing You May Be Asking

If you are interested in becoming successful with affiliate marketing it is essential you have a true need or desire to increase your earnings. Without a definite need, or wish for increased earnings, success may not come your way.

The truth is that thousands of people are successful in making money online with affiliate marketing. If you have an interest in being another successful affiliate marketer, my advice is to investigate a sound and honest source where you can learn valuable information without it costing you a cent, penny, or whichever your currency.

Included in this post is a video produced by Kyle who is one of the two Founders of Wealthy Affiliate.

Although this video is 13 minutes in length, I do recommend taking the time to watch and listen to what Kyle teaches. There is very valuable information to be learned in this video.

  1. Wealthy Affiliate is building a good reputation as a legitimate affiliate marketing training program for people serious about starting an affiliate business.

    What can you do to convince people who have been scammed in the past to take a risk and join wealthy affiliate’s program?

    Many people really want to succeed in a business online but their past experiences has kept them from taking the step to try again.

    • Hi Jeffrey,

      I can, and do, tell my story and experience of being scammed by some affiliate programs.  However, I don’t put strong emphasis on unpleasant experiences.  

      I prefer to emphasize the opportunity everyone has to experience the entire Wealthy Affiliate program for 7 days FREE of charge.  And, clearly advise that after 7 days, access to a limited program remains.  The limited program which is the Starter membership, is available for life along with the 2 Free websites and Free web hosting.

       Anyone who takes advantage of this opportunity must be able to see that Wealthy Affiliate is a legitimate affiliate marketing program.

      Thanks very much for visiting my site and leaving your comment.

      All the best.


  2. Great article, I am really interested in understanding how someone can make money online? And how long does it take? On the realistic side of things? I love the outline of the video and the process Kyle walked me though from customer, your site, to shopping and making money. Is it that simple? Would love to hear your thoughts.

    • Hi Cindy,

      I’m pleased you watched Kyle’s video to see the process of making money online. To answer your question, making money with affiliate marketing can be simple if you make it that way. By saying that, if you choose a niche you are passionate about, or at least have a strong liking for and are prepared to spend time and effort, the process can be simple.

      There are people who make everything complicated. You’ve no doubt heard of the KISS analogy meaning ‘keep it simple and straight forward’. Well, add a strong mindset and dedication and you have the foundation of a successful affiliate marketing business.

      All the best.


  3. Hey Valerie,

    I am most definitely inspired by this post, and because of that felt that I should leave you a comment in regards to your post.

    It’s so interesting to think that even though the Internet only became available in the 1990s that we’ve advanced so far in only 30 years. Imagine another 10 or even 20 years how much further along will be in regards to the internet. There’s literally nothing you cannot do on the internet, and as you mentioned above one of those being making steady profitable income.

    Wealthy affiliate it is by far one of the best ways to learn how to make money online. If you have a passion, and are willing to put the time and effort in to learn how to build a business around that passion, you’re well on your way to becoming successful.

    Thanks so much for such a wonderful post and I look forward to more quality posts from you.



    • Hi Brooke,

      Thank you very much for your kind words, and I’m pleased you enjoyed reading the post.

      Speaking of advancement in technology, I just can’t imagine how far things will go and how much the world will change in future decades. Who would have thought 10 years ago that drones would exist. Maybe those deeply into technology knew about them, but the average person would have had no idea.

      And the internet, as well as our mobile phone, are essential to our everyday living now. And how fortunate we are to have Wealthy Affiliate to help us continually grow in respect to online business. Everyone who is a member of Wealthy Affiliate has great opportunity to build a successful online business and enjoy the advantages of working from home.

      With best wishes,


  4. This was a really clear description of what affiliate marketing is and how best to do well with it. It is as you say Valerie, having the right mind set ” If you believe it you can achieve it”
    You know one of the things that surprise me is why people continue to live in overcrowded noisy cities when now as you have pointed out they can work from anywhere in the world, any where this is internet access. The internet has certainly revolutionized the way we think and live. You like me would surely remember the days of just the dial up telephone and urgent messages were sent via telegram. We live in an amazing time in history with so many more opportunities available to us.
    You have directed us to engage with Wealthy Affiliate to build our business and I can only agree with you on that. I joined up with WA a little over 6 months ago and the teaching is so valuable as is the community. After reading your post I thought I should go back over the starter training to reinforce that early learning.

    • Hi Judy,

      Thank you for leaving your comment. It is so true that if we believe in something we can achieve it. I think the most important belief is believing in ourselves, more than the item, whatever it is. There are many people who have great mindsets and do not allow anything to get their way. Once they decide to do, or to learn something they go for it.

      You mention people living in crowded cities and not moving on. I believe that is their mindset. Either they are not aware of the opportunities available to them, or they just don’t have the courage to move on.

      I certainly do remember the days of the telegram! It is truly amazing how far and how fast technology has moved! I also remember in the early days of the internet having to use dial-up through the phone. This could cause much annoyance between those wanting to make phone calls as opposed to those stubbornly taking time on the internet. I say ‘stubbornly’ but being on the internet was so amazing. How wonderful it was when ‘wireless’ became available.

      Yes Judy, the training at Wealthy Affiliate is far beyond any other program I have experienced. I’m delighted to know that you too see the great value. And, the fact that we can easily return to earlier stages of training as a refresher is a great advantage.

      Best wishes,


  5. Hi there Valerie.

    I just finished reading through your article on becoming a successful affiliate marketer and thought I would just drop you a quick comment to offer my thoughts.

    I have been into affiliate marketing for quite a few years now and what you say in this post in very true. If you want to be a successful internet marketer then you need to have a real passion for it. You need to really want a change in your life. Because affiliate marketing is very time consuming and it doesn’t always go the way you want it to.

    The great thing about affiliate marketing in my opinion is the fact that you can work from anywhere in the world and at your own pace. You don’t have to answer to anyone and you can base your online business on anything you like. In my opinion its just perfect. So long as you have the ability to work on your own and be disciplined enough to put the effort in. But then, the Wealthy Affiliate membership helps a lot with that.

    Thanks for the post!

    Take care,


    • Hi Andrew,

      Thanks for leaving your comment.  I agree that real passion is a vital component for online success.  As long as one chooses a niche they are passionate about and has strong focus on their target, they are set up to work anywhere around the world.

      All the best,


  6. It is true that the creation of internet has created a lot of opportunities for a lot of people.
    The opportunities to make money are in effect growing all the time. Just about every company is out on the web now and more are being created all the time. The difference today compared to the mid nineties is that consumers have become much better informed. This means that we marketers need to make a much better job in explaining how the products we promote can help a client with a problem.
    All in all it is a win-win situation as both marketers and clients get what they want.

    • Hi Jojo

      Thank you for your comment.

      I agree absolutely with your points about consumers being better informed now than they were in the mid nineties.  This has put strong emphasis on the need for online marketers to be well informed on the products they promote.  It has also placed the business of Affiliate Marketing in the real world where it is now recognized as a genuine business that assists with the supply and demand of products and services.

      All the best,
