Affiliate Marketing - Can You Really Be Successful At It?

What is Affiliate Marketing / Internet Marketing?

Affiliate marketing is a simple concept. You help to sell products for a particular merchant/company and earn a certain percentage as commission (anywhere from $1 - >$10,000). Basically it's a home based business and you can own as many "shops" as you want, without the hassle of stock inventory, shipping, etc.

How much can I earn from Affiliate Marketing?

The top affiliate marketers are earning upwards of $30,000 every month. Kyle and Carson (authors of Beating Adwords), are just some popular examples. When you're just starting out, don't expect to earn thousands overnight. But it is definitely possible to reach $100/day after a month or two of affiliate marketing (provided you do it right).

Is Affiliate Marketing easy to learn?

Yes, anyone can learn affiliate marketing, no matter how computer savvy you are. It is easy to get started on affiliate marketing. But to do it well, you need some dedication and the right resources. You need a good starter guide. There are dozens out there online claiming to be the "best", but in truth there are really only a few genuine resources on learning affiliate marketing.

So, where should I go to learn Affiliate Marketing? And what kind of sites should I avoid as a beginner?

Here's a general rule of thumb, avoid websites which give away too many freebies. In fact, only trust sites which offer one main product, and nothing else. The simple fact is that you won't need the free softwares, free "traffic generators", free newsletters, etc. They are just given away free to tempt you to part with your money. Many times the freebies are plain garbage that you will not use. Get ONE good book on affiliate marketing and you are one step closer to financial freedom.


You won't find another affiliate marketing guide that is half as good as Beating Adwords. Read a review of it here. The authors of this ebook have years of experience and are real pros in the field of affiliate marketing.
