What’s Your Why? – How to Start Affiliate Marketing Online

So now you want to know how to start to affiliate marketing online so you can create a substancial income for you and your family.

What is your “why”? What reasons do you have for wanting to learn affiliate marketing? What is motivating you?

You see, trying to learn to affiliate marketing isn’t easy, especially for beginners.

It can be challenging.

So, what’s driving you…Why do you want to do this?

Is Your “Why” Lack of Money?

Is it because you want true financial freedom? The freedom that comes with not having any money worries?

ALL your bills and creditors are paid, and you have PLENTY of money left over…You have REAL savings in multiple savings accounts. You actually have a spending account of “fun money” where you can do what you want, where you want, when you want.

Sounds wonderful, doesn’t it!

But you don’t have any of that right now, because you’re broke.

You’re so broke, you can’t remember the last time you saw the tail end of a 100 dollar bill!

Even worse, no one ever taught you HOW to make money – real money that makes a difference.

Wealthy Affiliate is the Most Downloaded Affiliate Marketing Program on the Internet Today with More Than 12 Years Helping People to Make Money Online!

Is Your “Why” Constant Humiliation?

Is the reason you want to learn how to start to affiliate marketing online because you’re sick and tired of being sick and tired?

Yep…It’s called humiliation.

Repeatedly borrowing money from family members and friends…Just to say to yourself at the end of the day:

“How the heck am I going to pay this back?”

How often have you been in humiliating situations over the years because of lack and limitation?

Rejected…Refused…Passed over…All because you’re broke.

You’ve got to fix this…and fast!

Is Your “Why” Your Family Circumstances?

At the end of the day, you well know you can’t provide for your family the way you want to.

It’s eating you up inside. It’s eating you alive. You see it every time you look in the mirror.

Not enough money for medicines or health insurance? Tired of depending on government assistance? Are you singing the Medicare blues? Tired of knowing you need food stamps every month to eat?

Frustrated with having to depend on government subsidized housing for a roof over your head? How about NOT needing any government assistance for anything at all anymore!?

Why You Are Reading This

You are on this page because you are looking for a way to create extra income at first, and then create a full- time income so you can provide the things you need and want for yourself and those you love.

You’ve figured out that learning affiliate marketing will give you the tools you need to finally make a real difference in your life.

You are looking for a way to create either one stream of income or multiple streams of income (wealth) so you can live a life free of lousy money worries!

I know exactly how you feel. Truth is, I felt the same way when I started learning about to affiliate marketing. And up until recently, there really was a brutal learning curve.

In fact, it was worse than most people realize! But a few years ago, I found a simple way to get my systems built that’s 100% tech-free.

I was able to build everything in a span of 6-8 weeks, and it was so easy …I didn’t even have to read the directions! In fact, there was no software to install, no “code” of any kind, and when I think about it …it was actually fun!”

“For years I’ve been trying to learn how to make money online. I’ve tried a number of so-called “programs” that did nothing but take my money and waste my time. Wealthy Affiliate is the answer to my problems because it’s affordable, the lessons are easy and I actually enjoy seeing myself make progress day by day. It’s truly amazing!”– Howard Spinney, a Wealthy Affiliate member since 2017

Make the Right Choice

Wealthy Affiliate is the answer to your “Why’s”. It’s the vehicle that many thousands have used to learn step by step to affiliate marketing for beginners and in turn create a life free from financial worry and stress.

By using the training from Wealthy Affiliate, ordinary people like you and I have created extra-ordinary lifestyles free from financial lack and limitation.

There are two features in particular I like about Wealthy Affiliate: Site Support and Live Chat.

Live Chat is not only a community of like-minded individuals who are also starting on their journey learning how to create wealth through to affiliate marketing.

Experienced affiliate marketers are also there eager to help answer your questions. Literally, and I mean this, no question goes unanswered on Live Chat!

On Live Chat you can communicate with them, ask questions, share experiences, and be held accountable through this online group of thousands of Wealthy Affiliate members.

Site Support is awesome. With most programs I’ve been a part of, I had to wait 1 – 2 business days to get an email answer to a support issue.

Can you imagine, 1 – 2 business days! Heck, if it’s on the weekend you may be waiting 2 – 3 days. With Site Support, my question or technical issue is answered within hours, and sometimes sooner!

At Wealthy Affiliate it’s a fact that if you ever have ANY issues with your websites or hosting, you have direct access to the server admins (the technical guys) who will immediately help you sort out your problems.

Regardless of whether it is lunch, or 3 in the morning…weather you live in Tokyo, Japan or Miami, Florida.

What I like about Wealthy Affiliate is that they take the opposite approach. You get offered A LOT for free.

  1. Great article! I completely agree with the fact that learning affiliate marketing can seem quite a hassle but with patience and a bit of time, people can start earning a substantial income. Wealthy Affiliate definitely is a wonderful choice and the fact that people can try it for free makes it even better.

    • Hello Saurav,

      Yes, trying to learn a skill like affiliate marketing can seem like a hassle at times. And to complicate matters, it takes a long time to start making money, consistent job-crushing money. However, when you do do reach that point, all you can think about is how happy you are that you did not give up.

      This business can provide a outstanding income. You must follow the training and not try to do things that are not encouraged in the training. Trying to reinvent the wheel will leave you with a flat tire!

      Thank you for the comment.

  2. Great article, I really enjoyed reading it.

    For me the reason why I want to start affiliate makerking in basically in one word is freedom.

    – Freedom of not having to rely on a company to give me a raise
    – freedom to work when I want how I want, and where I want
    – freedom to go on vacation for however long I want
    – and the freedom to build a business around something I’m passionate about.

    There’s no 9-5 job out there that can offer what affiliate marketing / wealthy affiliate can offer me.

    So that’s why I get up each and every day to build a better future for myself.

    • Hey Michael,

  3. Hallo there Spinney,

    I must admit that reading your post felt like you were writing the script of my life about a year ago. Before I ventured into affiliate marketing, I was very broke and felt very small.

    My life was a constant joke and it made me feel very low. Now I have successfully launched my online business, I can’t help but encourage folks who will be reading this to follow your steps. They are the ones I used to get here.

    • Hey Dave,

      Believe me, I know what it’s like to feel very low and very small. No doubt about it! It’s a place I don’t want to visit again. Certainly, Wealthy Affiliate has helped me tremendously to position myself  so my experiences going forward are positive and uplifting.

      Your comment reminds me of something Bob Proctor said years ago. We’re not taught HOW to make money. We’re told to get a job, but most people miss the point: A job will NEVER teach you HOW to make money. That’s why so many people are BROKE. They will continue to be broke all their lives.

      Thank you for taking the time to comment.

    Thanks for sharing,

  5. Hello Howard: I’m new to the online world of affiliate marketing, but it’s been something I’ve been thinking about doing for at least a year. I’m also new to WA and it’s been great for learning to start my site and gain insight while learning as much as I can. How long does it take on average for a website to start making money? Thanks!

    • Hey MattGTV,

      Thank you for posting your comments. The timeframe in which you start to make money depends on for you progress through the training. Some start seeing a profit after 6-12 months, Realistically, the majority of people start seeing results from 12 to 24 months.

      The first thing that may enter your mind is: “Why does it take that long?” Well, there are many factors involved. If you’re retired, then you could start seeing a profit far sooner than someone who still works a full time job. With Wealthy Affiliate, the timeframe to see money coming in is directly related to how long it takes you to get through the training modules. But for the average WA member, it’s usually 12 to 24 months. Please keep in mind: This is a REAL business and it takes TIME to set it up and do it right!

      Continue to move forward with your business.
