Becoming An Affiliate Marketer

Today lets discuss is it worth becoming an affiliate marketer – of course the pros and cons will look in favour of the pros IF you have never tried being an affiliate marketer.

Maybe some of you have started recently and some have been working on and off at this business opportunity so you will all have slightly different views.

Why Would You Want To Become An Affiliate Marketer

  • Work from anywhere
  • Work when you want
  • No one telling you what to do
  • Overheads are very very low
  • Opportunity to bulid an ongoing residual income
  • Feel good factor
  • Internet sales and growth will always increase
  • More people are buying from the internet

Well there are a few good reasons and they all make the opportunity seem to be a no brainer! Yet we all know that only 5% of these people are making the income we all aspire for, a recent survey I saw here made mention to 9% of the people surveyed were earning more than USD50,000 per year.

The reason I believe most people would want to be an affiliate marketer is to control their destiny and this really does have to be a deep founded desire and I will expand on this in a minute. Control of your life is a very great feeling and we here all the stories about how that would feel if you could do x y z when you wanted with who you wanted and money was no object.

How To Make Yourself Believe You Can Make It Work

This is all about the interests you have and how you can make them into an internet opportunity, this comes down to being willing to brain storm, write down ideas and most importantly look at how many other people are maybe making a success on the internet with an interest they have.

One way to start is to just write a Blog about what you like to do when you are not working and do daily posts about this to let the world know why and how you are enjoying yourself. I know this will not make you any money straight away but it will help you to get familiar with your “niche” and doing some work on a Blog, if you have never done it before.

I have found that when you look on the internet at different blog ideas it’s amazing how many people have the same ideas and interests and have developed their blog or website into an income machine, especially the ones that generate most of their income by having traffic and then receiving income from advertisers.

The Next Steps To Get Started

So you have picked an interest you have and enjoy it personally, made a few notes on a name for the Blog/Website, picked a domain name and got yourself through the technicalities of setting it up.

Now you may think this is a minefield, it can be but I would suggest you take a look at this;

The getting started bit is all about starting and once you have started it’s a lot easier to keep starting and doing a little bit each day and adding new things to your blog/website, imagine you are building anything that is going to last, it takes time and effort and knowledge.

So you need to get yourself used to learning, doing a little bit and that consistent effort will get you people who are interested in your website, looking at you for inspiration and assistance so they can too join the internet world to control their destiny.

The Big Picture is What You Need to Focus On

IF you are able to focus on the future and what you want to do and visualize these things daily, one new subscriber or the sale of one more product proves it works. As time moves on Google will rank your naturally written articles and posts as readers will realise that it’s not so difficult to do what you are doing.

Find others on the internet who are within maybe your niche or just successful within their niche. By doing this it will motivate you to keep taking action and you are then going to see results and you can develop more ideas when you are excited from the success you see.

Have that list of things you know you need to do on a daily basis written down and put somewhere so you see it every morning when you wake. That will help you focus and get things done and have the 3 most important things you want from this business. Have them written down so you see the words daily as those things will really inspire you to be pro active.


Yes it is worth becoming an affiliate marketer BUT you must understand why you “think” you want to do it and make it part of your life. It is easy to stop doing things to your website and then you go backwards. IF someone was to pay you USD100 per day to spend 2 hours working on your site I am sure you would find 2 hours to do the work to receive the money.

So what you have to do is just imagine that as time put in will pay dividends and IF you were to join WA.
