Can You Make A Full-Time Income As An Affiliate Marketer?

What is an affiliate marketer? What is affiliate marketing? Have you ever heard about it? Have you read testimonies of those who are successfully crushing their bank accounts by blogging and using affiliate links? Can you make a full-time salary by promoting products online? I’m here to tell you that you can. It’s beyond possible.


The Same Thing – Day In & Day Out

Are you tired of the day-to-day grind of the 9-5? Are you sick of a boss who doesn’t appreciate the hard work and time you’re putting in? Have you ever wondered if there is a way out of your unhappiness? If so, you’re in the right place. Welcome! Are you sitting at a desk or table with a cup of coffee or tea (or whatever else your preference is this time of day)? If not, go grab something to drink, along with a snack. I would like to share with you how I’m able to be my own boss. Hurry back! I’ll be waiting right here.


Family Became First – Where It Belonged

I was a teacher and loved reaching the minds of children and young adults. It was absolutely gratifying. I’ve even loved most of my bosses. Deep down though, I always knew something was missing. I’d come home exhausted after a long day at school and oftentimes, I’d realize that my own family was missing out on the best part of me. Unfortunately, my family wasn’t getting my happy, energetic, and encouraging self. After much thought, discussion, and prayer, my husband (also a teacher) and I decided that I could stay at home with our two darlings, P and C. We began a journey into the world of homeschooling. And. We. Love. It.

What Are You Searching For?

I know you might love your job. You might not even want to leave it! Perhaps you’d just like to find a way to supplement your already solid income. Keep reading! This post is still for you! Whether you are looking to give up on the 9-5 or have an additional side income coming in, my advice will help you. The sky is the limit!  Read on. I am excited to share with you how I’m able to both home school our kiddos AND help our family financially!


Affiliate Marketing & All That Jazz

Basically, affiliate marketing is defined as a marketing arrangement by which an online retailer pays commission to an external website for traffic or sales generated from its referrals. Most of the time, people who are successful in this venue are bloggers. Within their posts or articles, they give recommendations or review of products they like. They’re able to link their readers to an external site, the affiliate company, for a simplified means to purchase the item. If the reader purchases from that link, the blogger (or affiliate) will earn a commission. The affiliate does some research on a product and promotes it. He’ll earn a piece of the profit from each sale he makes. Make some sense? You can read more about it HERE.


How & Where To Begin

Like you, I spent so much time scouring the online world for ways to make some income from my couch. As you’re aware, there are billions of websites claiming this and that, promising you immediate income, and leading you down rabbit holes to the depths of darkness. I’ve been there. It’s not a fun place to visit. Then one day, out of nowhere, at the end of my search, I accidentally came upon a website that I simply needed to check out. Please stop your current research. I want to share with you a potential gold mine in your digging.


Grab That Gold!

The name of the company is Wealthy Affiliate. Wealthy? Yes. The owners of the company, Kyle and Carson, are extremely wealthy and they strive to empower others to become wealthy, too! How many companies can you name that the owners become a present personality on the platform? Both Kyle and Carson interact with the Wealthy Affiliate community daily. They share their thoughts, comment on posts, answer questions and provide training that you will not find elsewhere, guaranteed. Do you want to know a secret? The best part? IT’S COMPLETELY FREE TO JOIN!


Raise Your Hand If You Like Free

Legit free. There’s no secret anymore. This platform is completely free to join. See for yourself HERE! For the love of all things, please do yourself a favor and at least check it out. If you’re interested at all in learning how to make passive income, literally while you sleep, you’ve got to at least give yourself the opportunity to give it a look-see.

I admit. I knew nothing about internet marketing, becoming an affiliate, or blogging. I didn’t even know that was a possibility of earning money. The kicker is, I enjoy writing. I love helping others. I appreciate others who are willing to share their stories of success to encourage others to do the same. This is what Wealthy Affiliate is all about.


The First Step

Because it was free, I signed up. No biggie, right? If I didn’t like it, I was free to move on. No one was holding me, prisoner. What I liked from the get-go is that in all my searching, all of these companies wanted money. I was not in a place to spend money; I needed to find a way to produce it! I was so easily turned off by other companies, so when Wealthy Affiliate showed up, it was a welcomed breath of fresh air. Upon signing up for my free account, I was instantly and personally welcomed by the owners, Kyle and Carson, as well as many others who are a part of the platform. The encouragement I received within the first hour was inconceivable! I pursued the free training and within a couple of hours, I had a website up and running! Unbelievable? I know! I couldn’t believe it myself. I’ve written more about it in this post.


Step Two

What I very quickly realized was that this was a platform full of like-minded people who took an honest interest in not only their success, but the success of the other members. Not only that, but the support from the company’s owners really made me see its value. The next step I took was to become a Premium Member – which took no convincing. The step-by-step training, video tutorials, live weekly webinars, and the help from the community was all I needed. I have more than one website hosted here and am I working on others. I’m a part of affiliate programs and earning commissions from products I’m referring. Everything I need to educate myself is held within the platform of Wealthy Affiliate, for which I now hold a key. The same key can be yours as well.

Final Thoughts

Friends, please just check it out. If you’re struggling to find something that will work for you, I know this is a viable option. I’m proof of it. I’ve done the research and haven’t found anything that even comes close to comparing with Wealthy Affiliate. I came from a background of no knowledge. Now, I’m confident in my self and am able to pursue dreams I never knew existed. If you are someone who would like ways to learn about how to become your own boss, or simply, add to your current income, don’t let this opportunity pass you by. If you’re already blogging, you can transfer your website to Wealthy Affiliate and still take part in all the benefits and training! If you’ve any questions, please feel free to ask. If you’re already a member of Wealthy Affiliate, leave some love in the comments below! I wish you all success, no matter your background. We can all be winners together!

Ciao For Now,

    Affiliate marketing has been a really nice means of making money today in our online business world.  The system seems to be growing very fast and this is as a result of the massive influx of people going into it by the day. Personally from my own experience being an affiliate marketer, it may take a while when we start but with the right niche and full dedication, one would make some really good income. Best regards.

    Making a full-time income online is very possible but it is no easy task to accomplish. Those people making crazy bucks online now started from somewhere. Most of us can also become like them even if there are skills that one needs to learn to achieve this. These skills can very much be learnt and the best way to learn them is to learn from experts that have already achieved success running online businesses and one of the best places for this is wealthyaffiliate. The training needed to succeed online can be found within the platform and I believe those willing to learn and implement the lessons would find success.

    • admin says:

      You’re right, Jay.  Everyone has to start somewhere.  I’m so glad I’m starting with Wealthy Affiliate.  I don’t have to worry about wasting more time and money on other options when I know I have everything I need now at my fingertips.  

  4. Michel says:

    I think one definitely can make a full time income through affiliate marketing, but it takes a lot of time to get to that amount, especially if you are only working on your business part time in the beginning. 

    I have been a member of Wealthy Affiliate for a number of years now and will probably remain a member for life. I am learning so much from them on an ongoing basis and I am happy to say that all my websites are now in profit. For anyone wanting to get out of the rat race this is the perfect opportunity, but don’t expect to make a full time income overnight. 

    • admin says:

      Hey, Michel!  Thank you so much for weighing in!  Happy you’re happy with Wealthy Affiliate!  It’s definitely an option to leave the rat race behind and pursue pathways for passive income.  It doesn’t happen overnight, as you say.  If patience is practiced, the sky is the limit!  Blessings!

    From my experience, yes you can make a full time income as an affiliate marketer but it takes time for you to get there. So, it nice to have some back up income while you are building your online career. The reason that I chose my career as an affiliate marketer was because I want to spend more time with my husband and want to travel the world. Most importantly, I want to live where I want and want to work where I want. 

    We all have to start somewhere. From my experience I started it with a lot of training and networking with people in the business. Persistence is also the key and just those elements you will be successful as an affiliate marketer.

    • admin says:

      I completely agree with you!  It does take time to get there.  However, with the training and tools provided by Wealthy Affiliate, there really is no need to have to search elsewhere.  WA offers all things necessary for success for those who are dedicated and willing to persevere.  Thanks for your insight!  Best of luck to you and your future with affiliate marketing!

    It’s definitely possible, but I also feel like so many people try to convince others that it’s easy and it is not! It took me a while to make a significant passive income, definitely didn’t happen overnight and I hope others know that they have to put quite a bit of work into it before they see the real benefits!
