I created this site a year ago because I wanted to find a way to help people who have been trying to find success online with affiliate marketing. If you are looking for affiliate marketing for dummies training then you are at the right place.
Over the past year, I have been sharing some of the things that I learned through trial and error about affiliate marketing. The good news is now I know what works! Yippee!
Affiliate marketing is actually way easier than you may realize and it is fun! I love what I do. To me, affiliate marketing is more of a hobby than anything. But getting paid to do what I love is way fun!
Affiliate marketing in itself as a definition is really simple: You recommend products on a blog or through article promotion and if people like your recommendations, they will buy the product. When they buy, you get paid!
Easy Peasy right? 🙂
Well, not really. 🙁
You see lots of people, like me, get excited about affiliate marketing. We set up blogs and begin to write reviews about products. Then the next day when there is no traffic at all, we feel let down.
I know. That was me. I felt like such a dummy. I wondered what I was doing wrong. I was very frustrated. But I refused to quit on my dream. So I kept at it and spent many years learning what worked and what didn’t work.
Finally, I don’t feel like such a dummy because I am getting results. Real results! I am earning money online while doing what I love!
So the purpose of my affiliate marketing dummies blog is to help save you some aggravation and help you start earning some money.
On this site, I have lots of free resources for you in hopes of helping you find the same success that I have found.
I want you to take a moment and think about what your life would be like if you were a successful affiliate marketer. Imagine being about to fire your boss and work from home. You will have more time to spend with your loved ones. You could travel. You really can do whatever you want.
I highly recommend three things for success: (Boy, I wish I knew this when I got started)
Education: If you want real success, you need to learn everything possible about affiliate marketing. I highly suggest you check out my review of Wealthy Affiliate. This is a free site that is 100% focused on educating you in learning the skills you need to be successful.
You need to surround yourself with like minded people who want to see you succeed. Within the wall of Wealthy Affiliate, you will meet really awesome people, like me, who are eager to help you!
Website: There is no way around this. If you want real success with Affiliate Marketing, you need your own WordPress website. The idea of setting up a website is scary at first. This is why I am recommending that you start out with the two free websites and training offered over at Wealthy Affiliate. It is part of the free membership.
SEO Training and Keyword Tool: If you want your website to get good traffic then you will want to learn how to help people find your site when they do a search. You do this with SEO. Don’t let SEO scare you. It is easy once you learn it.
A huge part of SEO is keyword research. I recommend using Jaaxy for finding effective keywords. I have been using it for years and I usually see my site rank within a few days, often a few hours.
I am here too! (I’m sending you a giant hug)
I was an affiliate marketing dummy for years so I know first hand what it feels like when you work hard but are not seeing the results you want.
Please feel free to contact me if I can offer any assistance to you.
