What is Affiliate Marketing?

Affiliate Marketing is the process of building and maintaining a website that reviews or promote via writing content. This content would have links to an online store (such as Amazon) where readers would then purchase the product and you earn revenue through commissions.

The more often you direct visitors to your website, the more income you potentially could earn. An effective way to drive (visitor) traffic to your website is through the search engines.
The goal is to get your website ranked on the first page of Google for your targeted keyword (e.g. [product name] review). When this is accomplished, large amounts of search engine traffic will end up at your website and thus earn more revenue.

  • Kurtis Quick


    How long do you have to be affiliate marketing before you start to earn money?

  • Hi Kurtis,

    It all depends. I got an email from Kyle, The co-founder of Wealthy Affiliate the other day, saying when he started it took him about 3 months to get a sale.

    Wealthy Affiliate gives you the tools and training you need to build a website, get traffic to your site, setup all the SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and a lot more (too much to mention here).

    It’s really up to you and how much time you put into it.

    Thanks for the comment and question,

    What is SEO

  • Sue

    SEO stands for “search engine optimization.” It is the process of getting traffic from the “free,” “organic,” “editorial” or “natural” search results on search engines.

    All major search engines such as Google, Bing and Yahoo have primary search results, where web pages and other content such as videos or local listings are shown and ranked based on what the search engine considers most relevant to users. Payment isn’t involved, as it is with paid search ads.

    Hi Greg, may I ask your honest opinion, how long does it takes to really be successful in affiliate marketing?
    Hoe long did you take to make your first dollar?


  • Rags

    This is a wonderful way to earn a side income. Thanks for sharing about Affiliate Marketing. It’s really something that only of late can one do due to the changes in the way people do business in the internet. Appreciate your post

  • It depends,

    Wealthy Affiliate is not a get rich quick scheme and therefore you will not make money instantly. How much and how fast you make money, will all depend on the efforts you put in.

    The most important factor to take into consideration is that your website needs to mature and be recognized by the search engines.

    Nobody can tell you how long it will take to make money. If you are dedicated, you will make money eventually.

    How much money you make from you website all depends on your niche and the products and services you promote.

    The best advice I can give you, is to start your training as soon as possible. Kyle will explain the complete process to you.

  • Your welcome Rags, Thank You for your comment.

  • Paulina

    I have been a WA member for one plus month and just to share, I have made my first referral to the WA family but he has yet to sign up for the premium family. This means a lot to me as this has given me some form of reassurance and this would become an important cornerstone towards achieving the goal. Anyway, thanks for sharing.

  • Thanks for sharing your experience, it will take some time to get things running, keep with it.
