How Do You Get Started In Affiliate Marketing? – Easy As Pie

make money online,Speaking from experience the first thing is Do Not jump from one to the other and Do Not join anything that implies MONEY OVERNIGHT as it is impossible. I know about all these as I have done it and the hard lesson is IT COST A LOT OF MONEY. So how do you get started in affiliate marketing? In reality find one that you can trust, costs you realistic money per month or year (hosting included) with no up-sells.

Now you know I’m going to recommend a program and I am just trying to save you a lot of money because of the thousands of dollars I have spent over the years trying everything I’ve seen. (still kicking myself)

The best time to start your online business is now while you are working at your job because it takes time to build a business, if you keep putting it off then in one or two years you are going to think why didn’t I do this back then and I would have a profitable online business now. Makes you think doesn’t it, I know because I am guilty of this also but I finally settled down and went to work at one place Wealthy Affiliate.

How Much Does It Cost To Start An Online Business?

This is where it gets interesting, an online business need not be expensive but it will have to cost something at some point, consider starting a brick and mortar store on Main St. Somewhere and the cost would be in the thousands of dollars (trust me I’ve done it) Scary.

You can build an online business for very little, it will be less than say Smoking or maybe liquor or your morning latte, figure the cost of any one of these out per month (be honest now) and I’m sure the cost of building an online business will be Considerably Less. It is just a matter of what do you want the most a profitable online business or these little habits? It was a no brainer for me as by the time I got here I had to make a choice. (really happy with my choice)

How Much Does It Cost To Start A Website?

To get started the first thing you need to do is start building a website, this part is Free and can be setup in a couple of minutes, now this is just a start Oh and did I mention hosting is free to. I think you all know that I’m talking about Wealthy Affiliates starter package. You also get free videos, training and all the 24/7 chat room help from members and owners. Getting your website up and being able to look all through the backroom of Wealthy Affiliate to see what all members have access to then you may want to upgrade or not your choice you will still have your 1 free site.

Staying With One Program

Transparent_RedNow you can stay with the free program or you can do a one-time upgrade (Premium) $49.00 per month or $495.00 per year . Now with this program, free or premium you will have everything you need to succeed in affiliate marketing.

The one thing you need to do is to start all this before you need the money as it will take time and your website will need to mature in Googles eyes before you will get top rankings. Your bricks and mortar stores will take sometimes years to start turning a profit with all the money invested.


I had hundreds of emails from other programs that I thought would make me a lot of money (why not, they told me they would) right! I unsubscribed from all of them and that was one big load off my shoulders and just concentrated on the one Wealthy Affiliate, all my time on the computer these days is put toward my websites at wealthy affiliate and I’ve made more progress than ever before.

Now I won’t guarantee your success as we are all different and it depends on the hours put in, (can you work 15 to 20 hrs a week towards a full-time income?) the niche you are in and your dedication to your business as that is exactly what it is a BUSINESS. In closing all I can tell you is In all my years of searching and blowing money for the get rich quick scams I’ve finally found something that I’m comfortable with and no load on my shoulders anymore, I know when I’m improving my site it is not in vain. I sincerely hope this helps in your decision to open your online business and above all to Be Your Own Boss.


Whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you’re right. –Henry Ford
