Online Success Strategies – How do I Get Started with Affiliate Marketing

Getting started with your Affiliate Marketing and the Success Strategies that will help you become the expert when it comes to competition

You have arrived here because you have most likely asked the question: How do I get started with Affiliate Marketing and it is my pleasure to help you get the information you need to make an informed decision on whether or not Affiliate Marketing is for you.

Hard Work

Starting your own business isn’t a walk in the park. You are going to need to stay focused and whenever you are working on building your online future, work hard and do all you can. The more you grow your online presence the more visitors you attract and the more money you make so working hard is so important.

A high percentage of people get into something and then slow down with their input, take more time out from growing their business and eventually blame everything around them when it doesn’t work out how they thought it would.

Are you prepared to work hard? If you work full time I recommend you make a timetable for yourself so you can have a work-life balance while you are building your Affiliate Marketing business.

The Right Place to Learn and build

I recommend one platform you should join to begin your journey Affiliate Marketing and this platform is Wealthy Affiliate.

I have been a member with Wealthy Affiliate for a while now and it has given me the opportunity to become truly successful as an Affiliate Marketer.

Wealthy Affiliate has everything you will ever need to create and build a successful online business in Affiliate Marketing if you are prepared to learn the skills and learn how to use the tools offered within this awesome place.

I looked around at many different options and the only ones that came close charged $37 or $14 to join and then offered upsell after up-sell to get each part of the training and the upsells added up to around $2500- $3000 sometimes more and one day I landed at a website from a guy called Kevin and he had done a review on Wealthy Affiliate so I read through his blog and he had a real honesty about what he wrote, I decided to join for free.



Two days later I knew 100% this was the  place for me to be and I can tell you from my heart, Wealthy Affiliate offers you everything and you can join for free as I did, check it out and if you seriously want to build success online, then I suggest you pay for a premium membership which is $49 per month or around $359 for the year which is amazing considering apart from buying a domain name for your website, this is your only cost and to own a business anywhere is way more than this.

What will I get for $49 per month

  • There are 2 training areas within Wealthy Affiliate. The Online Entrepreneur Certification (OEC) and Bootcamp Training. The OEC training is for members who want to build a Niche Website go through and Bootcamp is for members who want to learn how to market Wealthy Affiliate and more.

My suggestion is the Niche Website 1st as it gives you are really amazing start to your online learning in every aspect of what you will need, how to build an excellent website, Analytics and more, I did OEC, then Bootcamp as it is all part of being a premium member.

  • You will also be able to have 25 free websites with a subdomain, site rubix and 25 domain names websites and all you have to do is buy your domain names when you are ready to build more websites.

All included in the premium membership.

  • 24/7 Support if you need technical help. for example, you make a mistake and can’t fix it. 🙂 It happens
  • A community of helpers. Within Wealthy Affiliate there a community of members, some who are experts at technical problems, some who are really clever with graphics, and 1000’s more great people with different skills and knowledge to help you out if you need help.
  • Seo SSL( High Security)Analytics and all the other technical tools that help us become known to the search engines which is what we all want

You will also be part of this community and if you have some knowledge in Website building already, you will be so great to have around.

Choosing a Niche/Product          

To start becoming an Affiliate Marketer you will need to choose a Niche as you get started. So what is a niche? It can be a service you offer people around something you know a lot about. It can be a product you love such as snowboards, or snowboard equipment.

There are literally millions of ideas on things you can write about as blogs within your website and I always suggest to people I help, is they write a list of everything that interests them and then once this is completed, you choose 5 things, then out of 5, you choose your no.1 choice and this will be your niche.

Here are a couple of screenshots for you see some search results in Niches

As you can see by these 2 images there are literally millions of results for anything you type into Google so type your niche and see what you get.


OK, you have your niche, you have joined Wealthy Affiliate, You have created your website by choosing from the 3000 WordPress themes, you have your domain name (make sure this is a. com site as the search engines prefer dot com and because your site will be worldwide no matter where you live, dot com is the best choice

You have now done lesson 1 of the training and you are already on your way to building a great online Affiliate Marketing Business.

It takes time to build a solid foundation for your business, so the more time you spend learning and building the faster you and success will become friends and when this happens the $’s will start.

It is up to you on how well you do and by joining Wealthy Affiliate you are giving yourself a huge edge over your competition because of everything you will learn as you move through the training, interact within the community, read success blogs from the top earners and learn how they do what they do.

Tony Robbins says” If you want to be like the truly successful people do, do what they do” Pretty good advice.

  1. Thank you Vicki for providing me with the information I have searched for, for what seems like an eternity.
    I too have came across programs that try to empty your wallet and bank account with their upsells.
    They are filled with empty promises and misleading information. I have all but given up on finding an honest program that fits my budget.
    I love how you have broken this information down for me and it seems almost to good to be true.
    If I join as a free member, how long can I remain a free member?
    ALso, I would like to know if Wealthy Affiliate ever has a promotional discount?
    Thank you and I definitely think I will be looking into this program.

    Thank you for the post. It is very important to know how the platform works before getting in it.With Wealthy Affiliate, my fear of making money online went away the day i entered. Even if it requires hard work, but WA is a well designed platform not only for expert in affiliate marketing but also for beginners. Most of the time i recommend my friends to upgrade because when you have a starter membership there are many opportunities you miss like offering or requesting comments on websites and which help in earning some dollars too.

    WA is the best platform n the world

    Hi Vicki

    Wealthy Affiliate really does look like the place to be if you want to learn all about how to be a successful Affiliate Marketer. I very much like the sound of it, and it is very unusual to have the chance to check it our for free!

    Do you get complete access to Wealthy affiliate if you opt for the free membership?

     Although I have to say that the monthly payments do seem very reasonable if the training really is as good as you say. I have previously been “conned” into paying much more for some training which turned out to be totally inadequate and taught me almost nothing!

    I really think that I have to join as a free member and take it from there.

    Very many thanks for bringing Wealthy Affiliate to my attention.

    Chrissie 🙂

    1. Hi Chrissie

      Yes join for free and come see how awesome it really is, then go premium and get absolutely everything you will ever need to become successful online

      All you need to is the work 🙂

      I’ll be there to support you along the way as well and look forward to working with you:)

  4. Hi Vicki,

    I found your post very informative, I am a member of WA and think it is a wonderful platform, probably the best. The issue I have is a niche, I would love to get into “how to make money online niche” but I wonder would I be better getting involved in another niche first to gain experience on making sales before I start trying to teach others how to make money online.

    I would appreciate any advice,


    1. Hi Dave

      Yes I would choose a niche about something you really enjoy and that will also be helpful to people visiting your site as you build, then down the track you could create and build another site in the MMO market

      As a premium member you can have 25 site rubix sites and 25 .com domain sites so there is plenty of time to make new choices

  5. I happen to be an affiliate marketer, so my opinion may be a bit biased. I work full time and have my own website that I am building very progressively. As soon as I am able to quit working and maintain my website full time I will have reached goal #1.  

    I think this is a wonderful article and a wonderful company to promote as well! Wealthy Affiliate is an honest and upfront affiliate market training company. You have covered all the topics wonderfully, and I think your site is very attractive as well.

    1. Hey Stacie

      Thanks for stopping by and reading this post and I am so glad you are with WA as well as they truly are the best platform to build online success

      All the best as you grow online

  6. Hello Vicki, 

    Great article and also suggestions on where to start. 

    Yes, affiliate marketing can be a profitable way to make money online. It is not an ‘overnight success pill’ but it is definitely one way to get the ‘ball rolling’ towards your success.

    Of course, as you have mentioned, it will depend on the educational platform you use to help you get started and Wealthy Affiliate has built a name for itself. I have a few friends who has started their online business from scratch and are doing well.

    All the best and keep up the great job.


    1. Hey Michelle

      Good to see you again and thanks for stopping by today to share your thoughts

      Yes it takes time but it sure is worth the effort you put in as money and time freedom are so awesome

      Hope all is great your end

  7. Excellent article! I’ve been a member of wealthy affiliate for about two months now and I could not be happier with the resources and service I get. It’s definitely worth the money, and if you work hard it will show. With so many other expensive programs around it’s nice having a site that is relatively affordable. 

    1. Hi Nate

      At the price we pay it is incredible considering how much it would cost to learn all we learn, not to mention all the free and amazing tools plus hosting, analytics and so much more

      So amazing and I too love WA

  8. Dear Vicki,

    Thanks a lot for the helpful and insightful post on Affiliate Marketing.

    One of the very best way to earn money online is by Affiliate Marketing. I personally know many Affiliate Marketers earning $4000+ every month.

    The challenge is we need to learn Affiliate Marketing from the right place. Before we earn we need to learn. I am really happy to see you are recommending Wealthy Affiliate because I am a fan of Wealthy Affiliate.

    To make it simple…

    I joined WA on November 2016 and I am still a member WA. So what happened in these 2 years…

    I became a full-time blogger since December 2017 working from home. So Affiliate marketing works and WA provides awesome training.


    1. Awesome Paul and glad you shared your success

      I too am full time now and loving it so much

      Time and Money Freedom is awesome 🙂

  9. The Wealthy Affiliate program sounds pretty amazing.  I see they have a free trial period, which makes it a no-brainer.  I mean if they don’t even ask for a credit card, there is no risk.  We can try it out, make sure we like it before we ever sign up.  I think that says it all.  Your recommendation means a lot.  You provide great information and I trust you.  Thanks.  My online business will excel with this program and I am grateful.

    1. hey Barbara – i’m looking forward to working with you and I’ll see you inside this awesome platform to help you get started 🙂
