Can you make a living by it?

For most people, the quickest way to get any foundation presence online in terms of getting your foot in the door (as a figure of speech) of the online world with little to no resources to start with is, Affiliate Marketing.

Yes, anyone can make money from affiliate marketing, but for starters it won’t necessarily be a significant amount. However, never despise the day of small beginnings. If you make $1.68, then you can scale up to $168.00 and more.

Affiliate Marketing takes time and patience to grow into an authority. Don’t forget about dedication and consistency in working towards your goals.

You can make a living from a successfully monetized website in the Affiliate Marketing industry, but it is advisable to have an original source of income while building it. Simply because it is a subsidized income resource to begin with until it begins to produce more than your main income source.

Is there anybody out there who experiences this fact, and can identify with what I am talking about?

If you are just starting out in affiliate marketing as a newbie, can you really tell your friends and neighbors that you are a business owner? Business owners usually make money, and if you are not making any yet, then you are better off telling them you are a business owner in training.

What is your perspective?:-

How do you view Affiliate Marketing?

Well, for me, I’m starting out in the online world as an affiliate because that is the easiest and cheapest way to get my foot in the door. Considering the fact that I have no ways or means of creating my own product at the moment.

So I am exempt from having the expense of getting materials for creating my own product. Of course, affiliate marketing means that you will be selling or promoting other people’s product for a percentage of the sales. See my post on how to sell products online without having your own inventory (here).

I view affiliate marketing then, as a stepping stone to something that has the potential to be great and will eventually change my financial future. Providing of course that I properly apply what I am being taught by those who are more experienced and successful in the business.

As you get to the point where you can truly say you are a business owner, affiliate marketing will give you the ability to do other things that you dream of accomplishing in life.

It can even give you the flexibility to tackle other forms of income streams, that you can now make your transition from your foundation 9 to 5 jobs and become a successful entrepreneur online.


What is your why?

Maybe you would like to spend more time with your family and your children. Securing a solid financial future for them so that they never have to struggle to get their dreams to fruition. Or, maybe you want to have the freedom to follow and fulfill the thing that you consider to be your real passion. At the same time not having any financial strain while pursuing your real dreams.

You are the individual who has to be motivated enough and have reason enough that will drive you into the dedication, commitment and consistency it takes to make it work. The real question is not if anyone can make money from affiliate marketing, but does the individual have the time, patience and efforts that are required to make it work.

It does work, but you have to make it happen and stick to it with consistence and you will definitely reap great rewards.

I know life deals you bad cards sometimes, like trying other programs and spending money you already don’t have on them. Only to find out that they don’t work and they were just scams. I know it’s hard to trust some of these programs because it happens to me too, every so often.


I am so tired of it that, I decided when life pushes me and push comes to shove, I am going to shove back. This is how I am shoving back, finding a legitimate program that works and have people of like mind and passion to succeed as I do. They can identify with the struggles of trying to make something of worth in the online world and have been there, done that and are now successful.

Now they are willing to genuinely share with others who are ready to walk the path to success with the same tenacity it took them to get there, because not every shiny looking thing is genuine and not everything that glitters is gold. If you are prepared to put the effort and commitment that it takes to shove back at life for the shoving it is now giving you.

Then I recommend that you take a look at my Wealthy Affiliate review (here)

Make an educated decision before you venture forward. Even try it out for free and see if it is the right fit for you and your speed before you put it into hard drive. Especially if you have been financially burnt and scammed in the past or even lately and have zero tolerance for anymore. Like myself, you are just sick of it. Enough is enough now man!

Why not you?

Isn’t it time to be yourself and become who you were meant to be?

Others are making it online in the Affiliate Marketing business and if anyone can do this then. Why not you and me?

Everyone deserves to find their dream and to walk in the fullness of their purpose and destiny. So why not you?

You have family too and desires to help and support them financially and morally, even be there for them when they are caught between a rock and a hard place in life. Why shouldn’t you be the one that when other members of your family are in a jam, and genuinely need your support, you can be there to help without breaking a sweat?

Instead of admiring the rich aunt or uncle from the extended family side, become the rich aunt or uncle.

After all, you don’t have to only be an Affiliate Marketer the rest of your life. I’m pretty sure there will be opportunities to become a product creator yourself somewhere down the road, once you get your foot in the door ( you know what I mean?)

You can either create a physical product or a digital product that you can market through multiple resources. The opportunities out there are endless.


You have to apply what you know. I always say that the fruit of information is not really seen until that information is put into action. Especially when you get great information that can change your future and lifestyle.

Try not to fall for the get-rich-quick schemes, anything that is of great value and worth takes time, effort and hard work to build. The important thing to look at when it comes to Affiliate Marketing, is the fact that it’s better to spend the time, effort and dedication you have now, investing into your own business.

You will be doing something today, that your future self will thank you for, the day you started to make a change. How beautiful will be the day when you finally make the transition from your 9 to 5 jobs into your own business. So yes my friends!

Anyone can make money from Affiliate Marketing as long as you find the right training platform and you have the right mind set to apply what you learn with the moral characteristics it takes from you as a person. Like commitment, dedication, effort, time, patience and just being teachable with great attitude.

Well that’s it for now my friends, be sure to share your perspective on this subject below:-

Cheers to a good life and prosperity!

    Yes, definitely we can make money from affiliate marketing. Many people think the market is already saturated for affiliate marketing but those are only excuses for lazy people. There are still lots of scope in affiliate marketing and lots of new products to promote. Even we can succeed by promoting high competitive old products. If we follow the right path, definitely we can succeed with affiliate marketing anytime. So, it’s better we take training for affiliate marketing before we jump into this business.

      Yes indeed Deraj..!
      The market can never be exhausted while there are always new products to promote and make money. Anyone with the right mind set and given the great platform of Wealthy Affiliate, can make money in this industry. Even if they are newbies, when they make their first sale, they will be so exited. Especially if they have never made a dollar from anything online before. All the have to do is follow the path as those who have been there leads, and they too will succeed.
      Thanks for your input and for stopping by.

    Great post!

    I have to agree, Affiliate Marketing is probably one of the best ways to make passive income on the internet. Of course, it is not necessarily easy, and people starting out will not make any large amounts of money overnight! But with consistency and effort over time, Affiliate Marketing can become a great source of passive income online.

    I checked your Wealthy Affiliate review, but can you briefly explain what Wealthy Affiliate is?

    I really enjoyed reading your article. Thank you.

    As a starter affiliate marketer myself, I truly believe that as you stated, with time and patience you can be successful.

    I find I am in the middle right now as I want to spend more time posting blogs but I have yet to see any income so I need to use my time at the office instead.

    That said, I truly believe Wealthy Affiliate is an amazing platform and am so greatful to have found such a wonderful place.

    Thank you again,

    • David

      Well my friend!
      The important thing to consider here is that you know what the right track is when it comes to buckling down to the grind and reaping great rewards after hard yet do-able work. Keep going to your office, but at the same time continue to put in the commitment to what is your own. One day your own will produce enough to substitute your main income and you will build your own empire and brand. I believe you can do this Kahlua! 1..2..3..crush it even!!!
      So all the best and cheers to your successful future!
      Thank you for your visit.
