Can you really make money in affiliate marketing? (7 success cases)
Can you really make money in affiliate marketing?
In a nutshell, yes! According to Investopedia, you can make a lot of money but it takes “time and money” to make it work. In fact, I have direct experience that affiliate marketing works, without draining my bank account! About a year ago I signed up for affiliate marketing training at Wealthy Affiliate and every day someone in my network has posted success stories. I will share some of them with you today. Affiliate marketing is about selling products and services for another person or business. Basically, you are the middle man, between the person looking for something they need and the person or company that has the solution they need. Most affiliate programs provide you a URL with a tracking code and when someone buys something you get a percentage of the sale as a commission. You definitely can make money, but it does take a lot of practice and a never-give-up attitude.
What is the best way for a newbie to get started?
Before I get started with success-case sharing, I would like to introduce you to my other blog post, “Beginner's Guide.” It might be a good idea to read that post before continuing on, so you can get a list of mistakes to avoid when getting started. Hopefully, you stumbled across this article in a google search or were referred by a friend.
Throughout my site, I mention Wealthy Affiliate. You probably are skeptical because you do not know where to start or who to trust, between the hundreds of marketing experts, or get rich campaigns that you found on Google or YouTube. It is my sincere hope that after reading a little bit about me and reading through my articles, I will come across as someone who is the real deal and offering you a valuable service, and so sign up for the free trial. Then within a few days, you would upgrade to premium and start your Wealthy Affiliate journey. On this journey I aspect you will get good training, a blog for the first time maybe, and learn about SEO, keywords, and affiliate links. Then you may get busy writing websites and making business accounts on social media to start laying the foundation for your online business.
