Solve Money Worries

ID-10097410A message to those of you out there who are having money worries. You are not alone. Times are hard…and many people are hurting. With the economy the way it is , anyone can lose a job at any time. And I mean any job. It is scary. It used to be if you had a good job, you would feel safe, now it is not son.

And if you do have a job, you are probably still struggling to make ends meet. Times right now in the US are tough for everyone. And because of that, people are looking to solve money worries.

For me, my biggest worry was retirement. I need to think about my future because I know I have very little retirement and worry that social security will not exist at the time of my retirement. I don’t want to have to struggle constantly as a senior. I saw my grandmother struggle financially and I don’t want that.

A few years ago, I was looking for a way to solve these money worries and found internet marketing. I wanted to find a way to bring in some extra cash to make ends meet but also to one day be able to quit my job.

The thing that is great about affiliate marketing is that it is really easy to learn to do. It just takes time and effort on your part. Even if you don’t have a lot of time, you can still get results….It just may take a bit longer for you. That was the case for me. I have grown my business around a full time job. But each month my income grows.

So what is affiliate marketing? Affiliate marketing is just promoting products for companies and when someone buys, you make money. It is pretty simple.

Let me ask you a question…

Have you ever recommended a book or movie to someone because you enjoyed it? If you have, then you could be an affiliate marketer and make money if your friend buys the book. All you need to do is become an affiliate for a company like Walmart or (easy peasy) then create a blog (again easy peasy), then write a blog post about the book or movie you love. Now if someone buys the book you have just recommended, you get paid.

What I love most about the internet, is once something is up, it is there forever. So I can make money today on a product that I wrote an article about 7 years ago. Now that is pretty cool.

The more blogs and articles you have out there, the more money you can make. It really is up to you on how much money you earn.

For me, my goal is to be bringing in a consistent $4000 a month by the time I retire. This way is social security is gone, I know I will still be okay.

If you are scared or worried about your future, take the time right now to learn about affiliate marketing. Think about what it would be like if you had a few thousand dollars coming to your mailbox or bank account in an easy and relaxed way. I be you would feel relieved. I know I am.

My website offers lots of information to help you get started. I also recommend checking out Wealthy Affiliate which is also a sort of University for Affiliate Marketing. You will also find me there and I will be happy to help you in any way I can.

    Hi Wendy,
    Your articles and website are very encouraging for a noobie like me; thx! Do you have some insights or can you point me in the direction of how to start affiliate marketing without having a website/blog/landing page? For example, is it possible to start experimenting with a small investment through setting a Cost Per Click campaign on Facebook coupled with Clickbank?

    1. // Reply

      I’m glad you found it encouraging. I have gotten the best results through niche marketing on websites or blogs that I have created. I don’t do cost per click, so I can’t really give you advise in that area. And I have used Clickbank although I generally prefer physical products rather than digital but that is just personal preference.

    hi there,
    I’ve just got into internet marketing because like you i wanted to secure some finances for my future. Also the idea of being able to work whenever and wherever you want appealed to me. Realistically, how long would it take before you start making money and earning enough money to do it full time?

    1. // Reply

      Actually the amount of time is really up to you. I’m slower than most because I only work my business a few hours a week. But my goals are a bit different than most. I want extra money for retirement and I love my job.

    Hi Wendy,
    Thank you for this awesome article.

    I really think it’s important for people to understand that they can create an income online and that if they work at it consistently, their income may exceed their wildest dreams.

    I am a wealthy affiliate member myself and I can tell that this is the best thing I ever did. This community is awesome. I would recommend it to anyone.

    Affiliate marketing is definitely one of the best business models out there Basically, what it means is that companies can outsource their marketing to affiliates who only get paid if they make a sale. But there are huge benefits to the affiliates too. No need to buy any stock. No need to deal with customer complaints. No need to worry about postage or delivery. All you need to be concerned with is getting people to click through to the sales site.

    Hi Wendy,

    I think finances weight heavily on most people’s minds as they struggle to support their families.

    WA is a great affiliate marketing group to be a part of. The training is great and breaks everything down into manageable tasks to do every day.

    I think it is worth reminding folks that this isn’t a get rich quick scheme and that it will take months of hard work and dedication before you get your first sale, but at WA it’s more about the journey than the destination.

      Very true that Wealthy Affiliate is more about the journey than the destination.

    Hi Wendy,
    You took the time to write a very insightful article really about what is going on with tens of millions of people in the U.S. and really the entire world: The concept about being able to live and support one’s self financially.

    Everything you say is so true about having income as one gets older and possibly running out of money during one’s lifetime. I’m now in my late 50’s and trust me I worry about it as well – (a reason why I joined WA).

    You then take the time to point out about the very concept behind affiliate marketing – that of promoting products to people. Face it indeed even not actually purposely doing it when you talk about a great movie that you see to your family or friends in essence you would marketing a product if you talked about in positive tones about the particular movie.

    It’s the same principle behind online affiliate marketing and you point out the one great advantage with this concept. Once you post a great and highly relevant content article about a product online, promoting the value that it can serve for people in need, the article stays online forever!

    You also state the fact quite clearly that in order to be successful in the business, one has to be highly dedicated and have a great work ethic in consistently promoting products repeatedly – best done through posting content online via a website.

    Yet this can be something that a truly committed person can do to build up for him/herself an eventual profitable online business.

    A very concise and thoughtful article, Wendy. Thank you for taking the time to compose it and I wish you nothing but the best in your business here at WA!

      Thank you so much Jeff. And I think many people feel the same way when they hit their 50’s and realize that they didn’t put enough money away for retirement. It is a bit scary. Thank goodness there are options for folks where they can create income through affiliate marketing. I am grateful to have found Wealthy Affiliate and got started earning money for my future.

    Nice Wendy. To be Honest, almost everyone has money worries. Few of us have become the kind of game players who don’t really have to worry about failure. Anyone working for another definitely has to worry. Their well being is in another’s hands. Times have changed, and not only are the stakes getting higher, but the options are increasing. Affiliate marketing is a good option to investigate, especially with the help of a terrific marketing organization, such as Wealthy Affiliate. Noone should hope to rely on social security, lottery tickets or good luck. You don’t have to anymore.

    Wendy, it is so true that many of us have undergone a change in our lives from steady and stable employment to another paradigm shift where employment is no longer secured and in fact, it is rather risky if you are still in employment as no one knows when will be his/her to be fired. I fully agree with you that being on your own is definitely one of the way to go. If the readers want to go online business, Wealthy Affiliate is one platform to consider.

      It is sad but true, Stanley that you never know when you will lose your job. Times are tough and yes affiliate marketing and the free training offered at Wealthy Affiliate is a great platform to consider. 🙂

    Affiliate marketing is certainly a cost-effective approach to building a business. And the best part is that there’s so much opportunity out there for the taking. There are over 3 billion current internet users and that number only continues to grow each and every day. It’s the biggest marketplace in the world and everyone has the opportunity of taking advantage of it.

      And even with all those marketers there is more than enough room for others. This is a real way for anyone who is struggling to begin to make ends meet. For me, affiliate marketing really was a life saver.

    Well, I can relate to what you say in here in a lot of ways.

    It’s not that I really have money issues but I just aspire for a life on my own terms, not a typical 9 – 5 job. And that’s why I need a better income stream.

    Thanks for sharing about Wealthy Affiliate. I think it’s the best community to learn about online and affiliate marketing.

    Hey Wendy,

    Great article i defiantly think a lot of us have gotten into affiliate marketing as supplement to our income. I think its defiantly a great way to voice your opinion and offer advice to those in need.

    I suggest if you have passion for a particular niche than why not offer your advice on that subject to those with similar interests.

    I’ in the same boat as you I’m afraid – I haven’t really got much in place in terms of retirement (well, you never really think you’ll need it when you’re younger…do you?).
    Anyway, currently online looking to make some extra dough and this affiliate marketing thing sounds like a great option…but how hard is it to grasp?

    1. // Reply

      Learning how to do affiliate marketing is pretty easy but there is a lot to learn. I suggest joining the Wealthy Affiliate community for those who want to learn affiliate marketing. There is a wonderful support system there and the training is step by step making the entire process easy to grasp!

    The simplest and most direct way to solve any money issue is to find ways to earn more money. Relying solely on one channel of income is not the safest route. Your job is not as secure as you may think and it is better to think of ways to diversify your income. One way to do that is to make money online. That’s how I do it and I love the extra side income every month.

      Me too, Andrew. It is always a good idea to have multiple streams of income coming in.

    Hello here. Thanks for clear explanation what the affiliate marketing is.It is a great opportunity for everybody who wants to be own boss and work as much as he or she can.
    What I like about affiliate marketing that there will be always plenty of companies which need helping hands and minds to promote their products.
    We need to be knowledgeable about them, present the best information and customer will show up.
    You are right, no more worries about money, lets go to work on online business goals.
    All the best, Nemira.
