Day 2 Training: How Will Affiliate Marketing Work For Me

Today is going to be a great day! Yesterday we covered the basics of affiliate marketing within my lesson and the affiliate marketing 101 post. Today I am going to show you how you’re going to use affiliate marketing to make money online! I will explain exactly what you’re going to do with affiliate marketing and take you through an example.


What is Affiliate Marketing Going To Do For ME?

Affiliate Marketing is going to turn your hobby into a full-time online business that will earn you money!

Your probably asking yourself how is that possible, but thousands of people are doing it online today!

All you need is a hobby or passion. I will use me as  an example I like to golf. It’s one of my hobbies and that is why I started a Golf related affiliate website.

It really is as easy as that. You find something that your passionate about and start creating a website to promote products related to your hobby!  DON’T WORRY ME & WEALTHY AFFILIATE WILL TEACH YOU EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW!

Here is a breakdown of the process

Choose a Hobby + Create A Website + Promote Related Products (reviews) + Drive Traffic = Sales & Money For You!

Let’s do a general example my buddy Steve really likes rc cars. He considers it his hobby and actually races cars at a local track. Steve wants to get involved in affiliate marketing so he decides to create a site doing reviews on rc cars for sale. He creates his website and starts to write reviews on different RC cars he owns and ones that other people let him use to review. He signs up for an affiliate program that sells RC cars and puts affiliate links within all his reviews.

The example above will give you a general idea of how the process will work for you!

Here is an Example: Tee Off Times And More

I mentioned earlier that I own a golf related website. It’s actually called Tee Off Times and More. I wanted to cover this site to give you an idea of how the process will work and give you a site you can look at in reference.

Hobby: As I touched on before I really like to golf. I am not good, but still I consider it one of my hobbies. When I first started affiliate marketing I knew I needed to choose something I wouldn’t get bored of so I went with my hobby of  Golf

Create A Website: After choosing Golf as my niche (hobby) I went ahead and went with the domain name tee off times and more. I then created the basic layout of my website which is actually really easy with WordPress and the help of Wealthy Affiliate!

Join Related Affiliate programs: Once I choose the golf niche I knew  I was going to be promoting golf related products. I went ahead and joined 5 or so different golf retail store affiliate programs to give me a variety of products.

Promote Related Products: Once I joined the affiliate programs I got to take a look at what kinds of products would be good to promote and found that I had the option to do reviews on golf clubs, balls, bags, and apparel

Start Making Sales!: After writing multiple reviews for my website and a few months down the road I was bringing in commissions through my amazon affiliate links which you can see below. In December I brought in about $100 in commissions and only 1 product was golf related!

amazon commisions

The example above is exactly what you will be doing! You will be surprised on how effective the training at Wealthy Affiliate and here is and how quickly you can start seeing results!

What To Expect on Day 3

This wraps up the training for Day 2! We covered a lot today. Hopefully I clarified a few things and really let you know exactly how affiliate marketing is going to help you! Now for tomorrow we will be covering step 1 to $5,000 a day which is choosing a Niche. We touched on this for most of the day today and you probably didn’t even know it.

  1. Hi Brok! I am signed up to receive your 5 day course. I am not finding anything easy about Wealthy Affiliate right now. When I first started, I kept getting a “504 Gateway time out” message. I couldn’t get onto any WA website at that time. I am quite tech savvy so I was checking all of my settings to make sure they were right until I finally went on Facebook and left a message on the WA social media page on FB. Soon after that post, the site was back up. I thought it was just a little glitch. When I tried to sign up however, I started getting another error message that I have signed up before. I usually remember what I sign up for. Although, I’ve heard about WA for a couple of years now, I never remembered signing up for it as I wanted to make sure I had more time to invest in it. Because I got that message, I went to the part where it says “forgot password”. Of course, lo and behold, on that page, it tells me there is no account registered to that email address. I even checked my emails to make sure I didn’t have some sort of confirmation from WA. Nothing there. Although I know, little things happen, glitches like this make certain things look less appealing. Which is where I’m at with WA at this time. If they could release something saying they’re having issues, I would feel a lot better. Any assistance in this matter would be greatly appreciated. I can’t do “live chat” or anything without being logged in. Very frustrated.

    • Keri,

      Sorry for the issues. So here is what’s going on. Not only does WA track what emails sign up for an account, but they also track IP. So if anyone in your household, or public place that you were at, has signed up for a WA account they will not let you sign up for another.

      I know it’s a pain in the A$$.

      They are not having technical issues at this time. So you may want to check with your household and see if anyone has signed up for an account. Or contact me and I can get it fixed. I just need some info from you and we can get it solved!
