Why Is Affiliate Marketing So Popular

Let’s say company Z has products to sell and they use the conventional method of marketing and advertising. Company Z has a TV ad and a radio ad campaign in place. Well, with the collaboration of affiliate marketers company Z can have the affiliate marketers advertising their product on social media (Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, etc.) to the audiences of the affiliate marketer who are also marketing and advertising the product(s) or service(s) on behalf of company Z. Now company Z has an expanded audience base of TV and radio along with the personal platforms of the affiliate marketer(s) on Facebook, YouTube, and Instagram. As you can see that with the use of an affiliate marketer(s) a company can increase its reach to audiences that it might not have otherwise reached.

How To Become An Affiliate Marketer

I must be frank with you, I have been working in this arena for eight (8) years. Through my personal experience, I have found many organizations, companies, and people advertising to join for a fee, sometimes an exorbitant fee, only to be overload with a lot of information and tools that I had no clue how to use. I have spent money trying to learn this business, but instead of viewing the spent money as a loss, I view it as the tuition that I had to pay to learn what I didn’t know. Sometimes the education that I needed to know was that a particular company, organization, a person was not a good fit for me. Ultimately, I found the shoes that fit me and it is Wealthy Affiliate.

I was able to set-up an account with this organization for FREE. I joined within 7 days at a very low cost, and when I recognized the value that this system I converted to a Premium Member at a very affordable cost. Premium Member is the highest level of membership within this organization and it very reasonable. If you find yourself needing to create, replace, or enhance your income Affiliate Marketing is worth looking into. Take the time to consider what it is that you want or need and take action!  Until next week, be safe, healthy, and prosperous.

  1. You are so right! Affiliate Marketing is hot these days. Many think earning money online is an easy fix business. Wealthy Affiliate is not a quick scheme to make money, but it is a reliable and well proven blueprint for monetizing your website and making money online if you are willing to do the work. I have been through the Online entrepreneur education and I will strongly recommend it if you are planning on starting a business online. It is a unique training.

      I totally agree with you. Wealthy Affiliate is not a “Get Rich Quick” scheme, but if a person is willing to put in the work and be patient, persistent, and have a positive attitude success is sure to come. Thank you for reading my article. Be safe, healthy, and prosperous.

  2. O coupe it agree more with you about how good affiliate marketing is and how effective it can be a generating an income online.

    I think one of the things I like most about it is that you don’t have to actually sell any product to people, but rather your just helping people find a good product or service and getting paid to do so.

    In your opinion what is the best way to do affiliate marketing? Setting up a blog, creating a YouTube channnel, using social media?

    Also how long does it take you say to start earning good money with affiliate marketing?

      Thank you for reading the post. All of the ways that you mentioned are pieces of the affiliate marketing program. The question is which method interests you. I don’t care for social media but it is a necessity for me to reach more people so I have learned to use social media platforms. I love making videos and soon I will have the time to build my YouTube channel also.

      As far as earning money, everyone is different, We excel at our individual pace. There is no set time frame as to when we will achieve our definition of success. It will happen when it happens. When and if an individual achieves success is the decision of the Universe and the Univers wants us to succeed.  Keep building your business and continue to grow and you will reap the rewards. Take care. 🙂

  3. Hello there thanks for sharing this review with us,affiliate marketing is really helpful to the  unemployed and those that wanna  be their own boss. The reason I joined this platform was to make  additional income  to help pay some  other  bills, I have been looking for a legit  online business, but all  have seen is something else but hearing  of  wealthy affiliate and joining it has been great. 

  4. Hello there, This is an amazing article that you have got here, affiliate marketing is indeed a great opportunity for making mkneyy online, aside blogging and vlogging. It is one cool way I believe anyone could make money from. With minimal effort and no cost one can stand the position of a middle man to get the products to the buyer for a commission fee.
