Affiliate Marketing – The Easiest Way to Make Money Online
Looking for an easy recession-proof way to make a living? Do you want to learn the easiest way to make money online? I can help you.
I have been successfully making money from home online, for a little more than 5 years. The nicest thing about the way I make money, is that once it is set up, you can make money on autopilot. What is this way?
It is called Affiliate Marketing. I absolutely love making money this way because I can do this from anywhere, as long as I have an internet connection.
Picture yourself waking up in the morning, walking to your computer, checking your email, and finding out that you just made a hundred dollars while you were asleep. That is easy money! Woo Hoo!
Does that sound amazing to you? I know when it first happened to me, I was doing the happy dance. It was such a sensational feeling, knowing my efforts were beginning to pay off.
Now you can feel the excitement too, with this easy and real marketing platform to make money at home online. The process is really simple to do.
How to make money online the easy way
The process of making money online in Affiliate Marketing is very simple. First off let me give you the definition of what affiliate marketing is.
According to Wikipedia, “Affiliate marketing is a type of performance-based marketing in which a business rewards one or more affiliates for each visitor or customer brought by the affiliate’s own marketing efforts.”
Okay, maybe that definition still has you wondering how you will make money. So to make matters simple for you to understand, watch the below training video. It will give you a clear understanding into this proven form of online marketing that so many people are successfully doing right now.
Just click the image below to load the video lesson.
How to make money in Affiliate Marketing
Did that video get you excited! I know when I first watched it, I started thinking of all the items on Amazon I could promote and make money from.
Now that you have that amazing and easy way of making money online still in your head, let me give you an example of what this type of business is and how it worked for me when I started.
One of my websites is about Video Game Testing and I write webpages and blogs about how to test video games. Then I become an affiliate of companies that sell video games, like Amazon and Best Buy.
It is 100% Free to become an affiliate of any company. These retailer’s then check out my website to make sure I am legitimate and not some scam website, and then they will approve my affiliate request.
Once I am accepted as an affiliate, Amazon, Best Buy, or whomever I am affiliated with, will send me advertisements for the video games that they sell. Each of these advertisements have an embedded affiliate code unique to me only.
I then place these ads on my website. When someone comes to my website and reads my content review on the games, then decides to buy the game, they then click on the ad I have on my website to place an order.
When they click on the ad, they are sent to the retailer’s website shopping cart to complete the payment transaction. Then the retailer will pay me a commission of the total sale amount.
It is that simple! I basically use my website to advertise the games and the entire purchasing process takes place on the retailer’s website. I do not have to stock or mail the product, nor deal with the customer.
How does the commission payment work?
I am going to give you an example of what I made from just one person, who purchased from one of my Amazon advertisements. The person purchased a Call of Duty video game for the PlayStation 4 and some other items. This is what the customer bought:
1. Call of Duty PS4 = $47.99
2. Need for Speed PS4 = $49.64
3. RED 2 DVD Movie = $11.07
4. iPhone 4S Case = $8.99
5. Canon PIXMA All-In-One Photo Printer = $288.99
6. Canon Photo Paper = $6.99
Even though the person purchased more than just the Call of Duty game, I still get paid a commission on the TOTAL price of the entire order, shipping & handling not included. The total came out to $413.67 and my commission was 8% or $33.09, all from just one person.
That time I mentioned at the beginning of this post where I made $100, it was from 3 different people all who purchased the same video game but went on to buy other things too.
This is one of the reasons why I really love making money online in affiliate marketing. It truly is amazing how easy it is to make money once you have everything set up.
The hard work is mainly writing all of the pages and posts of content. But the building of the website (only takes about 1 minute) and the sales of whatever is being promoted/advertised on the website, are the easy parts.
Because it is so easy – and fun – to build affiliate marketing websites for earning money from anywhere in the world, you can affiliate with almost any company in any kind of business or passion.
I even show you elsewhere on this website how you can make money by becoming an affiliate of The Star Trek Store or if you are into various kinds of sports like NASCAR auto racing. All you need is to learn how affiliate marketing works and where to start.
Where can I learn Affiliate Marketing?
There are several places you can learn about affiliate marketing, but the best and most all-inclusive place is where I learned all I know.
When you learn about affiliate marketing you want the training to be thorough and give you everything you could possibly need to succeed. The first thing you will need is a website and the majority of places that teach affiliate marketing require you to have a website prior to your training.
This is one of the many reasons why I highly recommend learning affiliate marketing from Wealthy Affiliate. It is here that I learned not just affiliate marketing but also how to build and create a WordPress website and blog without knowing any kind of programming.
This was made possible because of Wealthy Affiliate’s exclusive website builder software that programs your website for you. You can be a complete non-technical newbie to the internet and still build a website.
As you have seen in the above training video, the owners of Wealthy Affiliate have created an all-inclusive training program that leaves nothing out.
They make it easy for you to start by giving you access to the easiest website builder, you can view the video of how quickly you can build a website on my How to Build an Easy Website page.

Hi Rob, This is Jim W and I left you a message on your email. I hope you can help me out on this matter since I’m still a starter-member at WA and cant get any help from the community until I upgrade. Thank you. Jim.
What do you need Jim? Can you not reply to any comments on your WA profile page?
No Rob, I cant reply to any comments as long as I’m a starter member. That means I’m totally isolated from the WA community. This is an issue I wish Kyle and Carson would revisit because starter-members are potential premium members. The problem I’m having is when I log into my website on rubix, my antivirus warns me the site is not encrypted. Is it actually safe or do the antivirus-makers need to “Chill-out” a bit here and not scare people with these alarms.
So you cannot reply to the question I posted on your WA profile a couple of hours ago?
SiteRubix is totally safe. I always ignore it when my anti-virus software gives me a similar alert. You are getting this because the website is an http and not an https. Nothing to worry about.
I also wanted to say that you have a very awesome website here at “The Best Legitimate Job From Home” You talk about many ways to bring in some extra cash. It may even help me pay my premium membership costs at WA when I do finally upgrade.
Thank you Jim. The premium training here at WA really can open up new possibilities to earn money in addition to that of creating your own affiliate marketing website.
I have been struggling with work and now I really want to build a website and start affiliate marketing.I feel hopeful for the future again. Will it be easy, NO , but I am excited to get going.
That is good to hear Carie! Nothing worth while, especially something that can generate you a full time income online, will be easy. But fortunately with the website building and hosting resources at Wealthy Affiliate and the guidance and training from Kyle and Carson, the two active founders, getting your online affiliate marketing business up and running will not be hard at all.
Hi Robert. I have been an affiliate marketer for a couple of months now. You are 100% correct. This is definitely the easiest way to make an honest “work from home” income. My site is mostly centered around baseball, so you can imagine my surprise when I was looking at my Amazon sales report to find that someone had purchased 2 hammocks and a sleeping bag! That’s the power of affiliate marketing. You have a great site here filled with valuable information. Thank you and I will see you again soon.~Jeremy
Hey Jeremy, thanks for stopping by!
I checked out your website, because I love Baseball, and I like what you have to offer!
Yes, Affiliate Marketing is the easiest and best way to start a work from home business. If you have a passion about something and you can write content about it, you can make a nice living from it and never have to worry about being laid off from a job where you work for someone else. I love waking up and knowing I do not have to commute to work and can work from anywhere I want, as long as there is an internet connection.
Hey Robert. Thanks for checking out my site. I now have you bookmarked and will anxiously await your next article.Thanks again. ~Jeremy

Thank you Andrea! Whenever I do a review I always try to use a long-tailed keyword, which I used for the title of this post and/or I try to use the date of the year.
