Affiliate Marketing for Starters

Having a home based job will always be a dream come true for every stay at home wife. You get to take care of your family while earning and never get to lose an opportunity to learn. All you need is a computer, good internet connection and a cozy spot for you to work on. As good at it may sound it’s never easy to find such opportunity. Aside from there are a lot of competition in the market, sometimes it is also hard to choose because some are very easy tasks but of course that entails little earnings and on the other hand difficult tasks can give you more earnings but will take much of your time. I have tried to do a lot of research to find an opportunity that would suit my day to day activities as a housewife and of course where I can earn a lot (eventually) and I came across affiliate marketing.

Affiliate Marketing

As defined by entrepreneur.com  Affiliate marketing is:

A way for a company to sell its products by signing up individuals or companies (“affiliates”) who market the company’s products for a commission

To put the context into simple words, what you need to do is sign up with an affiliate program, promote a product or service, and then earn commissions off of whatever you are selling through your link.

As easy as it may sound there is a lot to learn about affiliate marketing.

 

Stay Positive. Learn It. Earn It.

After tons of research on affiliate marketing my interest level keeps growing. If you are a newbie to affiliate marketing and still trying to learn what would best work for you, all the ideas, reading materials, tutorials and other videos could be overwhelming. But for me I always motivate myself and I always stay positive so I can continue and push my self to learn more. Because in my perspective, continuous learning is the key to successful affiliate marketing. Aside from motivating yourself, staying positive can have a good impact to your health as well. According to mayoclinic.org:

Health benefits that positive thinking may provide include:

  • Increased life span
  • Lower rates of depression
  • Lower levels of distress
  • Greater resistance to the common cold
  • Better psychological and physical well-being
  • Better cardiovascular health and reduced risk of death from cardiovascular disease
  • Better coping skills during hardships and times of stress

Right now I’m still in the process of learning and will just take it easy. I will take one step at a time so I can avoid committing mistakes and not waste time and effort. I wanted to take time and learn every aspect that I need to know first, where to focus and luckily I encountered a one stop shop for all of my affiliate marketing needs: Wealthy Affiliate This is a good place for me to learn everything, it is structured, has good affiliate training, easy to navigate,  and have tons of training modules to learn from. This made my journey easier and more organized so I can focus on the important aspects and and just get going.
