It is not that easy though, I realize, just like other kinds of jobs in order to be successful you need to work hard and be focused on what you want to achieve.

    1. Hi geebehn, thank you for sharing your thoughts.

      You are right, there are definitely several other ways to be an affiliate marketer online.  And for me, having your own website creates the best result. But in any other ways, in order to be successful online, you really need to give time and effort, and most of stay focused!

  4. I have been working part-time online on and off for a few years. I have seen a few different products, markets, and affiliate programs. Most lead you in with the opportunity to make money overnight. They just suck you into one up-sale after another.
    Then I found WA. They allow your full access for the first 7 days to give you a true assessment of their program. Like most how have tried WA, you will become hooked on the why the program progresses. However, the best part is there is NOT a bunch of up-sales. Basically just 2. The top sale is under $400 for a 1-year membership to the continued training by some incredible people.
    Who can argue with that?

    1. HI Ken, thank you for leaving a comment.

  5. What I love about affiliate marketing is its ease to get started on. There’s really nothing more to getting started than what you laid out above. While there’s a lot of work involved and achieving the four steps will only come in time, the process itself is straightforward. My advice would be to stick with it over the long haul, celebrate the little things, and build your online dynasty.

    1. Hi Todd, thank you for your comment!
      You are definitely right! Sticking with it, be focused, and just keep going until you reach that goal.
      I know there will be “shiny objects” around, but as long as you stay with one goal (one goal at a time), and build your online dynasty (as you`ve said), anything is achievable.
      All the best!
