How To Make Money As An Affiliate Marketer — 18 Comments

  1. Hi John, your article reminds me the first days when I had learned about affiliate marketing. I was posting my links all over the Twitter but without any success.

    I was doing that for three months every day and I did not have one sale.

    After that, I made my research and I learned that I should build a website. Everything works better now. I have some traffic and sales.

    I have not tried to build a list without a website but I would like to test it in the future to see how it converts.

    Thanks for sharing,

    • Thanks very much for being a regular visitor to my website Ilias. You are quite right, years ago I created several Twitter accounts, built them up manually with selected follower and “cleaned” my lists regularly to have only real and active followers. It did work to promote affiliate programs and make money that way, but it doesn’t anymore. We now need to have our own niche website or blog, and find the right affiliate program to promote.

      Wealthy Affiliate is definitely the place to be in order to learn all that from A to Z.

      Your website is excellent and you have loads of interesting information.

      Best wishes of success in your online venture.

      John ツ

  2. Thank you for great post. I read you articles and found them really helpful especially for beginners looking for help.

    I got here looking for guidance as well, was searching articles on affiliate marketing and ended up here. As a new blogger i am grateful for all the information i got and can get.

    I am trying to make some money from blogging as well but the competition is on rise and it is tough just working with adsense alone.

    Hope you can help me with some relevant question, i would like to ask you about affiliate programs, you even mentioned and discussed some a little too.

    Thing is I want to integrate with this monetizing method too but i am having some hard time choosing an program that suits my need.

    There are so many out there in the market but so many different policies and rules, some do not accept new comers and some are just too complex to work with as starter.

    My content is based on multi niches products and that being that i need multiple niche product feed too so if you can suggest me something that would be great I will really appreciate it.

  3. Wait, Twitter goes after you if you post affiliate links??? Hmmm, I’ve been tweeting affiliate links here and there for the last week or two ever since I made my first Twitter account for promoting my affiliate websites. Should I go back through and try to edit them if I can or delete them or just roll with it? Thanks for any advice on this, appreciate it.

    • Don’t panic Sean, what I mean is that if you Tweet too many affiliate links and too often, and do not engage in conversations, or responding to your messages, Twitter will flag you are a spammer. The Internet guru Neil Patel suggests that you can Tweet 5 to 20 times a day, but for better engagement, restrict yourself to 1 – 5 Tweets a day. This also means that all your tweets must not contain affiliate links. You can space them will tips about your niche, reTweets of other users’ tweets, etc.

      There is no point hiding an affiliate link using a link shortener or by cloaking it as Twitter will detect that anyway, and your followers will immediately know that you are hiding an affiliate link.

      And finally, space your Tweets over the 24 hours of the day, don’t just Tweet 10 messages one after the other and that’s it for the day, okay?

      Hope this clarifies the misunderstanding Sean.

      Happy Tweeting!


  4. Hello,

    There is some great information and I must say motivation in your article.

    I like that you are pointing out some of the pitfalls of affiliate marketing such as your issues with your Twitter accounts. I have to say I don’t yet have a huge following on Twitter, I am still building it up but I am now wary of using it so much. There are other options for marketing and it’s good to use as many as possible so as not to have all your eggs in one basket so to speak.

    Thankyou for all the sound advice.


    • Thanks for your comment Louise. To clarify a little bit, I am inviting you to read my answer to Sean (riverdoog) below so that you will understand better what I mean by not overdoing it with affiliate links on Twitter.

      Let me know if you have any questions and I wish you the very best,
