How To Become Rich In Life – Using Affiliate Marketing
Welcome To My “How To Become Rich In Life” post.
Today, I will share with you how you can become rich in life by using my favorite method – affiliate marketing. 🙂
I have been using affiliate marketing since 2014 to make a living online. It is one of the easiest ways to make money online.
One of my websites (this one) currently earns over $1500.00 per month only monetized through affiliate marketing.
To get an idea of how much money you are able to earn using affiliate marketing, take a look at the two examples below:
First of all, take a look at Pat Flynn – author of the popular blog; Smart Passive income. One of his main methods of monetizing his website is through affiliate marketing.
If you were to visit the blog, you will see that Pat Flynn displays how much money he earned from the previous month.
Of course, many of us are not as experienced as Pat Flynn, however, you still have the potential to become rich using affiliate marketing.
Kyle Loudon and Carson Lim started out in the affiliate marketing business back when they were still in college.
Today their main website has grown into one of the best membership websites on the internet.
According to siteprice.org, the current estimated website price is valued at $402,184, although I strongly suspect that the price is worth much much more than the estimated value.
Note that when these individuals started out in affiliate marketing, they were not making money during the first few months.
As a matter of fact, they felt like quitting along the way when no money was being made.
What kept them going was that small voice in the back of their head that said: “you can do this…, don’t give up on your dreams”.
That determination to succeed led them to be very successful people indeed. That is why so many people now know their story.
The truth is that affiliate marketing does take a lot of time to build up, however, if you stick with it, you will become rich without a doubt – the persistent ones are the ones who always win.
So What Is Affiliate Marketing?
If you are reading and have no idea what affiliate marketing is, allow me to quickly explain in real simple terms…
Affiliate marketing is simply promoting someone’s else’s stuff on your website, blog, social media, email, etc.
If someone were to click on the special link that you promoted and happen to make a purchase using your link, you will then earn a commission from that same sale.
I can almost guarantee that you have purchased a good or service online and did some form of research before you eventually went out and bought the product.
Chances are, you made someone a commission by doing that simple action, ie. earning the website owner a commission.
Almost all review website that you see online are affiliated with a major company.
One such major company is the famous online behemoth – Amazon.com.
They are the world’s largest e-commerce store and they are paying hundreds and thousands of dollars to each person who is affiliated with them – and promotes their products.
The process is actually quite simple and you are able to do this quite easily.
The first process is to sign up with the Amazon.com associates program.
You will find the link by simply going to the bottom of the amazon.com homepage and look for “Make Money With Us“, then click on the “Become an Affiliate” link.
Once approved, Amazon will provide you with a special link known as an affiliate link.
You will now be able to use this same link to promote ANY product that you wish to promote from the amazon.com website.
The illustration below should give you a clear outlook of the process:
A word of caution to newbies: Do not use your affiliate link to spam social media, people on your email list (if you have one), or plastering it all over your website.
This is by far the #1 mistake that most people make when they are just starting out with affiliate marketing (at least I know I did).
Focus on providing value by writing thoughtful reviews and honest recommendations to your audience and the money will definitely flow.
The Truth About Affiliate Marketing
Many people never start or simply quit affiliate marketing because they say that the process is too slow to make money.
Those are the people who suffer from the “get rich quick” syndrome.
These same people will usually get scammed from various online gurus who promote useless get rich quick schemes.
In reality, affiliate marketing is a business, so as with all businesses that you see in this world, it will take a bit of time to grow and profit.
If you do not have the business/success mind mentality, I would first suggest that you develop your mind with books such as “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” by Robert Kiyosaki or Napoleon’s Hill’s “Think And Grow Rich”.
The 4 hour work week by New York Times best-selling author Tim Ferriss is also a recommended read.
The greatest thing about affiliate marketing is that those who use it and apply the process will actually become really rich in life.
How To Do Affiliate Marketing?
It’s not hard to do affiliate marketing. One of the first thing that you need to have is a product or service to promote.
I would also suggest that you have some form of interest or passion for the product or service which you plan on promoting.
Right now, there are countless amounts of products out there on the market waiting for you to promote to others.
From my experience, the best place to start promoting your product is actually from your own website.
Now, many people get scared or even intimidated when they hear about having their very own website.
Believe me, if you have a facebook account and have posted on your wall, then you are 100% qualified to own your own website – and make money from it!
The website that you are currently reading (yes, this one) was created in less than one minute using a free website builder known as Site Rubix website builder.
Of course, it did take a bit longer to get it developed to a stage where you are now able to get some useful information from it.
It has now grown into an authority website in less than 2 years and is one of my main sources of passive income.
I have broken down the process on how easy it is to create your free website in this post, so do have a look.
Is Affiliate Marketing For You?
Affiliate marketing will not be for everyone.
Many people have tried and failed in affiliate marketing simply because either they did not have the patience to continue or did not get the proper training and guidance to become successful.
The lazy will definitely not succeed in affiliate marketing. It does take continuous work, discipline, and determination to succeed with this lucrative business.
