You’ll be surprised at the cost-effectiveness of the the method I’m about to share with you for building a lucrative affiliate Biz from the ground up…
Enough yapping, let’s crack on…
“I Want to Send You Down The Right Path to Success”
Sadly, I’ve been sucked in by numerous scams and shoddy products/systems over the years…
Every single one made the same far-fetched promises of how I could “make a ton of money quickly from zero effort“…
Blah, blah, blah…
So yeah, you could say I was a little naive back in my own internet and affiliate marketing newbie days.
If you’ve also fallen for “too good to be true” money making opportunities (which I’m sure you have)…
Then you can totally relate to my experiences, right?
But fast forward to today and I’ve finally mastered the skills for creating a successful online business.
So here, on this page, I would love to help you start off on the right foot and share everything you need for BIG success in the affiliate marketing arena
But before you get up and running…
The Top 5 Affiliate Biz Startup Mistakes Made by Noobs
Let’s face it, we all make mistakes in life, right?
And it’s no different when it comes to the wonderful world of affiliate marketing.
Because there’s no such thing as that word called “perfection”.
But it’s those blunders that enable us to learn harsh lessons and eventually grow as affiliates (as long as we don’t throw in the towel on the journey).
So what I’m about to reveal is gonna give you some invaluable insights moving forward with your new business.
#1: Lack of Budget…
Yeah, you absolutely can start an affiliate marketing Biz for nothing, zip, nada. Don’t get me wrong.
But that’s only the bare-bone basics.
Because at some point you’ll need to get your hands on certain digital resources to take your Biz to the next level and succeed.
Some seasoned marketers claim you need to start out with $1,000s, and others say many $100s before you’ll make your first dollar online.
In all honesty, it depends on the internet marketing path you choose.
But implementing the same strategy (which I’ll uncover soon) I use will only cost you a few hundred bucks per year.
Well, when I say “cost”, what I really mean to say is: It’s an “investment” in your online Biz and the rest of your future.
Plus, within your first six months to a year of being in business, your investments will very easily be covered by your profits anyway 😉
#2: Taking Little to No Action…
The unethical product creators tell you that $10,000s can easily and quickly be attained from some “push-button” software and/or working an hour here n’ there.
But the actual truth about building a successful online Biz is that it’s a tough cookie.
I’m not gonna lie to you.
While understanding the concept of affiliate marketing and starting your Biz are the easy parts…
You must be willing to learn the ropes (step-by-step) and TAKE ACTION for a number of months before the cash starts flowing in.
Stacked on top of that, comes adopting a Super Affiliate iron mindset and self-belief, etc.
Because personal development is also detrimental to your success…
You must learn to programme your mind to overcome obstacles and keep yourself moving along the right track.
Which also means planning and making some sacrifices on your journey.
But I won’t go into all that right now.
Sadly, those with “Get-Rich-Quick” mentalities who are looking for the easy road to riches end up quitting…
They make up every excuse under the sun before they’ve even left the starting blocks.
#3: Shiny Object Syndrome…
With so many enticing money-making programs on the market, all claiming to be “the best thing since sliced bread”…
You end up spending a big bunch of cash on multiple products and getting in over your head.
You may think you’re gonna learn a heck of a lot about affiliate marketing, but that’s the problem right there…
“Information overload” is seriously uncool.
Because it actually prevents you from taking any kind of action.
The same also applies to all those ‘Done-For-You’ systems…
You just hop from one system to another in search of that golden goose egg…
But all you do is put yourself deeper out-of-pocket – buying upsells, traffic packages, and whatever else those system creators recommend.
The truth be told, you only need to get your hands on just ONE decent training product that’s gonna show you the ropes, and stick with it.
#4: Buying Absolute Junk…
I guess this ties in with mistake #3.
Have you ever bought WarriorPlus, Clickbank, ClickBetter, and/or even JVZoo products?
Well, there lies another problem.
Because the majority of products sold through those marketplaces turn out to be cheap crap.
Don’t get me wrong, there are SOME products on said marketplaces that CAN deliver you results online…
But what generally happens is that many creators’ design hyped-up sales pages for making easy sales THEMSELVES.
And once you buy their stuff, you get access to non-newbie-friendly sub-par training and/or shoddy software that fails to deliver…
Just to confuse the heck out of you – pushing you into buying their ‘Done For You’ upsells.
In my experience: Sometimes, it’s best to look outside of said marketplaces for the awesome programs can actually help you to build a successful Biz from scratch.
#5: Spamming The World Wide Web…
Some newbies tend to approach affiliate marketing from the wrong angle…
They spam social media (or whatever medium) with copy n’ paste ads tied in with affiliate links, for example.
And from what I’ve personally witnessed…
Especially, when it comes to posting crap on their Facebook statuses and inside FB groups.
It’s not only a good way of getting booted out by group admins and penalised by the mighty FB itself…
But it’s also gonna leave your reputation in tatters.
Unfortunately, “spamming” is a result of shady product creators’ (and their affiliate programs) providing newbies with tacky resources and encouraging bad habits.
Or due to noobs not having any guidance from the offset.
Either way, spam is a NO-NO and leads to zero success.
In today’s digital climate, folks want real VALUE from you if you are to build something hugely successful as an affiliate.
This leads me to discuss the main building blocks for creating a wildly profitable Biz from ground zero…
3 Crucial Components of a Successful Affiliate Biz
The process for getting up and running is very easy to comprehend and will change your entire perspective on affiliate marketing.
However, having the right puzzle pieces from the get-go is one thing…
But it’s the actual “taking action” part that brings the puzzle together – enabling you to build a successful online Biz.
Now that’s cleared up, these are the 3 components you’ll need…
#1: It All Starts With a Website
Building your own website is an absolute must.
Because you need a platform (blog/home/hub) for helping to provide solutions to people’s problems within your niche.
This can be anything from publishing ‘How To’, ‘product reviews’ and ‘Best Of’ topical posts on your blog.
This in turn makes you an instant authority – gaining your audience’s trust and forming relationships with them…
Which can lead to you earning a full-time affiliate income.
A website is seriously gonna separate you from the affiliates who don’t own one, I tell ya! 😉
#2: The Correct Step-by-Step Training
In order to build out your site with content and turn it into a skyscraper, it’s vital that you receive the right training.
Without step-by-step guidance, how will you ever know what you’re doing or even if you’re heading in the right direction or not?
Yeah sure, YouTube is filled with plenty of free affiliate marketing guidance…
But the problem is that it’s just so overwhelming with so many channels and videos to comb through – You’ll still need to figure out how to piece everything together yourself.
The other issue is that some channels teach dated stuff and even bad strategies in some cases.
So you’ll need to get hold of a platform that outlines the right strategies step-by-step.
#3: Help & Support, Baby!
You must have 24/7/365 access to a community of internet marketers who are there to support you whenever the going gets tough and you need a hand moving forward.
Without the right around-the-clock help, you’ll be stuck in a rut.
Trust me, these 3 elements fit together like a jigsaw puzzle because they are absolutely necessary.
Even with just one missing, your internet Biz will fall apart.
So if you’d like to grab hold of all 3 key components rolled into one amazing platform for setting the wheels in motion…

Wishing you success…
Your Friend, Neil.
If you have any questions or thoughts on starting an Affiliate Marketing Biz, then I’d LOVE to hear your comments below…
Very nice comments you are getting from very nice people, I found a guy who is promoting Wealthy Affiliate the same way you do, but people just crushed him about it. After they finish with him he was mash potato.
I think WA is a great place to learn especially if you do not know anything about work from home or how to make a site. To make this work people need to understand that this type of online business needs time, work, patience at the beginning if you do YOUR WORK the correct way and have patients and know how to write great articles.
I think building a site is not for all. You need to be a great writer like you are, not crushing other sites to promote WA. Most people disagree with this type of writing.
I am a free member a few months back a made two sites and they “erase them” from the SiteRubix platform because I did not upgrade, I do not know if they are doing this with other free members?
My advice if you decide to register as a free member, ask if they have this policy.
Mmm… I hope sausages, onions & gravy come with the mash! Nom nom.
But in all seriousness though, maybe the dude was a little too biased with his review of Wealthy Affiliate. Who knows.
I totally agree that WA is for those who are willing to throw themselves into the training and give it all they’ve got.
Thanks for the compliment, truly appreciated. But I wouldn’t call myself a great writer though lol. Just someone who loves to communicate with and help my audience through written content. 🙂
As for your free sites being deleted by WA, this is unheard of to me because WA allows starter members to keep their sites.
However, IF you did nothing with your sites for a long time in terms of creating zero content. Then I could understand WA terminating your sites since WA hosts them for you, at the end of the day.
That’s web hosting space that could be allocated to someone who’s serious about building an online Biz. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not calling you lazy or anything lol.
It’s just the only logical explanation I can think of.
But I’d recommend reaching out to Kyle & Carson for more light on the subject.
Free isn’t feeding anybody.
Indeed, that is so true.
It’s free to get “started” at Wealthy Affiliate. But to go from starting an online Biz to making it actually profitable, it’s in your best interest to become a Premium member.
I signed up for the training but can only seem to access it on my phone… I just purchased a new computer. Is there a link I should follow?
That’s a strange one, Desiree.
I know that WA works on all devices, so it could be an issue with the set up of your new PC. I must confess I’m clueless when it comes to techie stuff lol. But double check your computer and internet settings. Maybe you’ve missed something.
I received a very telling comment on my FB page. A friend said, “You are your own brand.” I inadvertently branded myself as a vampire crazy fun. It’s gone on for years. People love this character I created. I know what to do with her. 🙂 Any suggestions?
It seems your friends have you figured out lol.
My suggestion is to get a website and monetise the heck out of your vampire character. Make your brand and domain name cool, catchy, short, and memorable.
What to do with your character… Hmm…
You could use your website to write articles on vampires and also reviews on related merchandise that you can earn affiliate commissions off of.
But also Halloween could be a highly profitable SPOOKTASTIC time of year (from experience) for your brand by telling scary stories on your blog, recommending vampire costumes, face masks, face paints, candy, party decorations, etc. I guess you could even promote tickets for scarefest nights and other scary events if there are affiliate programs for those. Who knows.
There are plenty of directions to choose from for your brand. But I hope you’ve drawn some blood (sorry, I meant inspiration) from my ideas.
I’m just wondering… as I have a fairly full schedule, but would still like to do an online business for the long term: How much time (while training/studying – i.e., hours/week) is suggested to get a business at least up and running (not necessarily profitable)… and approx how long before said business might actually be “open for business”?
You’ll actually be surprised at how quickly you can get an online business up and running with Wealthy Affiliate!
If you commit yourself to the starter video training, you can easily go through the tutorials, build and publish a website, and set up your site’s framework in less than a day.
However, if you have a busy schedule or you’re a complete novice needing plenty of time to absorb the training, then you can start your Biz in 2 – 3 days max.
Hey. I made a mistake and subscribed for a premium membership before I was truly ready a few months ago. I was in the middle of creating the first post on my first site and now I want to continue but I don’t have the money to resubscribe and access my account. Do you have any suggestions? I really want to make this work.
So sorry to hear about your situation, Dante. 🙁
The way I see it, you have a few options.
1: If WA allows you to continue with a free starter account and website, then you can continue applying what you’ve learned so far.
But with the free account, there will obviously be numerous membership restrictions.
2: If you can scrape the money together, you should go for the $299/yearly WA Black Friday offer in November 2018.
3: If you can’t do any of the above, then my next best recommendation is ‘Free Internet Marketing Project’ (FIMP) for the same training you get at WA but without the tools.
Also, if you choose FIMP, you’ll need to start a new blog from scratch outside of WA.
Hope this helps, Neil.
My country (Nigeria) is not accepted. What is the solution?
At one point, Nigerians could to gain access to WA.
But Nigeria is no longer accepted for both free and premium WA membership because of fraud issues and the fact that it’s difficult for some Nigerians to pay for WA membership either via PayPal or credit cards.
Sorry for the bad news.
It’s hard going down the road to success but nobody ever said it would be an easy one, right?
The scams are the bumps in the road and there are so many of them that it gets very discouraging.
The only way is to just keep going forward and never giving up. Sooner or later you’ll find what you’re looking for to succeed online.
I found it! The only program I ever came across that is legitimate… Wealthy Affiliate.
Free to join, 4 step program, large online community, and great support team.
Indeed, Rob! The road to success is a very long and winding one, but success can be accomplished when folks work hard enough for it and also learn to avoid scammy pitfalls throughout the journey. 🙂
I’m happy to hear that WA is the platform you’ve been searching for, and there’s nothing else quite like the WA community on the web.
What you really need to succeed is a lot of patience and the will to work hard. There are limitless opportunities but it really takes a lot of time and effort to make them profitable and especially to make them profitable for the long term.
I have put up ads a few times that made me quick money but it never lasted. Better then to follow your advice and build a genuine business that will generate profits for years to come.
You’ve hit the nail right on the head, Jojo!
Only those who are prepared to learn and take action will earn a full-time income online and accomplish financial freedom. 🙂
Ads can be an awesome way to promote products and generate commissions but you must be on the ball because the internet is forever evolving and also start with a sizeable budget.
But yeah, blogging is definitely the best option, in my opinion.
I can’t count the number of scams I ran into when I first started to work online!!
I wasted thousands of dollars on various ebooks, plr packages, and push-button solutions all to be extremely disappointed.
Once I decided to get serious about making money online, I avoided scams and traps. It was easier to do when I was ready to work, not just buy into the “silver bullet” fixes most online money courses sell.
Having a solution that actually teaches how to build a business instead of just promising you anything to get you to fork over your money sounds pretty good!
Sorry to hear about your experiences, Noelle! Scams are just a giant pain in the butt!
I definitely feel your pain when it comes to throwing money down the drain too. 🙁 But we live and learn, as they say.
Glad to hear that you’re now on the right track. Finding the right platform to learn from really is one of the keys to success online.
I am sick of seeing all the “get rich quick” schemes flooding the internet. I wish all the people who created those fake opportunities would be put in jail and have to pay back all the money they stole to the people that fell for their traps.
When I first started looking for opportunities to work from home I knew I wanted to earn money online. I also wanted a training system and a support group for help. I think everyone should look for an opportunity like the one you are offering.
If you want to earn good money in an honest way then work is required. That’s why you need a training system to know how to work the right way. It’s a plus that your opportunity is free and doesn’t require a credit card.
I’ll check out your opportunity. Thank you!
Aren’t we all, Weston!?
I totally agree with you! Unfortunately, a lot of scammers fly under the radar. But I’m sure most will be punished eventually.
Indeed! Having access to the right platform that offers you the training, tools, and support you need, is the best way to earn an income. But some folks are looking for a “quick and easy” approach to making money online, and this why so many are falling for “get rich quick” schemes.
As the most successful say – there’s no substitute for hard work.
Yup, you definitely can’t beat a free test drive of an affiliate training program. 😉
You’re welcome, bud!
