About Wendy

IMG_3740-pMy name is Wendy and I’m a mom of 3 adult kids. I have 2 beautiful girls and a handsome boy and this past year I got a wonderful son-in law. I am also blessed with a loving and supportive partner for life, named Brian.

I am truly blessed!

I also am blessed with the fact that I have a job that I love. I am a manager and team builder. My work means a lot to me and I really enjoy it. But unfortunately, my field doesn’t pay as well as I would like which would make it very difficult to make ends meet.

What a lot of people don’t know about me is that while working full time, I am quietly getting earning a nice amount of money on the side. I like to call it “mailbox” money because I  also have checks in the mailbox several times a week. It is fun!

I love to write and I have a few blogs that earn me money through affiliate marketing. I love that I get to do what I love, write about my passions, and I make money. It is almost too easy.

My Goal

My Goal is to create a residual income so not only do I not have to worry about my retirement, but I will be wealthy enough to enjoy my retirement and travel the world. Plus I want to leave a legacy for my kids.

Your Goal

Everyone has different reasons to start affiliate marketing. It may be that you are struggling financially and you just need some extra income on the side. Or maybe you are unemployed and would like to create a fulltime online business where you can have the freedom to do your own thing. Or perhaps you have a product that you want to promote.

Regardless of the reason, you can earn residual income from home with your own blog or website.

Residual Income

The great thing about affiliate marketing is that you often keep getting paid even months or years after you do the work. So you can generate a consistent income very quickly.

For example, yesterday I received a check in the mail from one of my affiliates. I actually get a check from them every month. But here is the cool part. The last time I marketed this company was back in 2010. But the articles I posted are still on the internet. So people still read about the product and they still buy. And I get commission.

Why I created this blog…

I created Affiliate Marketing Dummies Blog because I know that there must be a lot of women or men who are tired of struggling to pay the bills or who want to have time freedom to do the things that they want to do.

I want to pay it forward.

Guess what?! If I can do it, anyone can. And I want to show folks how easy it can be.

Seriously!

Through trial and error over the last 7 years I taught myself how to generate income from several different income streams simply by creating blogs and websites. It took me longer then most, but I know what works and what doesn’t work. So, I’m hoping I can save others a lot of frustration by sharing with them what works.

What works, is having your own WordPress website about a niche that you are passionate about.

Does creating a Blog or Website sound scary?

If you are new to internet marketing then the idea of building a website can be intimidating  and if you go online and do research it may sound even more scary. I mean there is an incredible amount of information and it can be very overwhelming. You see terms like “web hosting, keyword research and domain name”. But let me assure you it is way easier than you might think.

If I can figure out “affiliate marketing” and make money, than anyone can.

Seriously! I was a real Dummy when it came to affiliate marketing.

On this blog I will teach you what affiliate marketing is and how it all works. I will also share with you some of the best tools to make things easier and I’ll share my most effective tips

And it’s gonna be fun!

    Hi Wendy,
    I got stuck at creating contents for posting.I m a newbie/dummy and its so scary and so many things to learn for blogging !OMG!Just writing articles alone freak me out!I am lost don even wanna to continue this journey.I just want a simple website promoting an affiliate product and thats it!But my online coach tells me to blog!I HATE blogging!Sorry for whining but i m looking for a BIG HHHHHELP!SOS!

      I totally know what you mean. In the beginning I hated blogging too because I had a hard time expressing myself through words. But I learned that it gets easier the more you do it. You can totally create a small website promoting your affiliate product. I think you coach is wanting you to blog, because good content is what will attract readers which will give you traffic. It is important to have some fresh content on your site pretty regularly.

      Having a website isn’t enough. You need traffic. Social media helps, paid advertising like pay per click helps, but the best way to get traffic is through SEO. Write good quality content, do keyword research and post as often as possible.

      A couple things that helped me might help you. Be sure to choose niche that excites you. Make sure it is something that you are passionate about because it will make it easier for you to write about it. Then when you post, pretend that you are recommending the product or service to a friend. It is like having a conversation, except you will be writing it out.

      I wish you all the best Jeff. Please keep me posted on how you are doing.

        Thanks Wendy,But Ia m crippled at the moment.Haven even start to create my website.Just don know the steps and its just haywired my mind.Again its the contents that drives me crazy.At first i thought its just writing some killer sales pages and insert afiliate links here and there and an opt in form for sending sales email by using autoresponder tl either the subscriber buys or unsubscribe.Ijust want to make a few hundreds extra per month not really a six figure millionaire or what.So simple idea yet why its so complicated.Affiliate marketing in my opinion is kinda direct marketingn. Follow up and follow through plus some web traffic skills thats all!Didnt think its so tedious,I am already wonderng is this what i want.The joke is my wehost and autoresponder were already rnning for two months and i pay for nothing.

          Jeff, it sounds like you may be trying to do too much too soon. No wonder you are overwhelmed. Start small. I wouldn’t even consider adding an opt in page or autoresponder until I was getting substantial traffic.Let’s not put the horse before the carriage. I know it seems overwhelming. I suggest going step by step. Wealthy Affiliate is free to join and offers a step by step training for newbies. It is where I got started. I highly recommend it. It will help you to not be so overwhelmed. Just focus on one thing at a time. You can do it.

    I happened upon your blog which caught my attention right away and thought to myself, “What a perfect fit!”. We’re currently looking to spread the word about our affiliate program and would love to get you involved.

    I could go on and on about how great our affiliate program is, but why not check it out for yourself here? I’m also happy to set you up with access to our product so that you can better familiarize yourself with Grammarly.

    Very good site you have here but I was wondering if you
    knew of any discussion boards that cover the same topics discussed in this article?

    I’d really like to be a part of community where I
    can get advice from other experienced people that share
    the same interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know.
    Thanks!

    With havin so much written content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement?
    My website has a lot of completely unique content I’ve
    either written myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my authorization. Do you know any ways to help
    protect against content from being ripped off? I’d genuinely appreciate it.


    1. // Reply

      I really don’t worry about it that much. Google knows that my content was there first. So if anything, the plagiarist will be penalized by not getting traffic.

    Hi

    Your blog is really good for dummies. Many great things are there to learn. I have one question to you. You have claimed to be earning approximately 1000$/ month. Is it from this single website or multiple other websites in different niches? Being a newbie blogger myself was just curious. Hope you would n’t mind answering my question.

    Thank you.

      I just realized I didn’t answer your question. I’m sorry. Yeah, I have several niche websites. 🙂

    Your example shows why people should get involved in online marketing as it definately can change lives. An extra $1000 a month would chage anyones life. This was an enjoyable read and it was nice to meet you 🙂
