What Is Affiliate Marketing? – How to Monetize Your Blog — 16 Comments

  1. I love affiliate marketing.  What programs do you recommend and which ones do you recommend staying away from?  Google loves original blogs.  I’ve learned the hard way to stay away from high ticketed affiliate marketing companies.  In my opinion most are scams.  I can name a few if anyone is interested.  This is a well written and in-depth post.  I enjoyed reading it very much and look forward to reading more posts.  Keep us updated on any scams you find.  

    • Thanks for commenting on my latest blog post Jon. If you scroll up the page you will see my “My #1 Recommendation“, this is the one program that you can join in total confidence. Then, the drop down menu on the right of it called “Avoid” is where you will find all the programs that I have reviewed which you better keep away from.

      If you want to make sure that you won’t miss any of my articles, all you have to do is to signup for my newsletter at the bottom right column of every page.

      Wishing you an excellent day.

  3. There’s no ethical conflict on Affiliate Marketing. The store from the corner on your street house buy at a price and sale at another price (their suppliers and the prices the get the items for are considered administrative secrets). The final price doesn’t gets affected by getting the customer through an affiliate or not (this is the most honest commercial practice ever).

    There are too many things to learn to get the ball rolling. I like about your recommendation that there are too many people willing to assist you through their live chat and active forums. I’m very interested as they have the greatest inventory of courses to help me hitting ground and get productive.

  6. I have been planning on getting started on affiliate marketing lately as I had monetized my blog through Google ads and it isn’t really something you can always look up to for the long run. I hear that affiliate marketing promises more money and is quite a good way to make money as you help people and helping people with quality information is what makes the money come in. 

    Will see if I can make as much money as others are making in affiliate marketing and get back to you but from what I’ve seen others do , this is quite a big opportunity to make money whilst at home. Thanks John for a well detailed and explains article, it is very informative.

    • Thanks very much for commenting on my latest tutorial Donny. Affiliate Marketing is definitely the best way forward to honestly make money from home, where everyone is a winner! So, go for it Donny.

      One thing also that is useful to get your blog going is to promote it. You will see at the top right of every page the banner that suggests “Highly Targeted USA Traffic!“, there is the best way that I know to get excellent traffic to a website.

      Let me know if you have any questions, okay?


  7. Hey John. Affiliate marketing is what I want to do because I love the whole concept of affiliate marketing. Thank you for sharing this helpful post explaining almost everything we need to know about it. Although I have some knowledge of affiliate marketing, I must confess I learnt so much from this post. One thing I have decided to do is to build my niche on trust and honesty, following the rules of the programs I am affiliated with and the rules of search engines like Google and the others. I would make sure I recommend only stuffs I have used or have researched extensively and find worthy to be recommended to my readers because I want to grow a business that will last…

    • That is the right attitude to have MrBiizy. The online world would be a much better place to browse if every users were like you, but unfortunately it is not the case. Hopefully many of my readers will read your comment and get inspired.

      Thanks for sharing MrBiizy and I wish you the very best for your online projects.


  8. At the mentioned of cookies getting eaten, I smiled. When I was new to the internet world. I taught of that as much. Affiliate marketing is in fact a legit way of making money online. But some bad eggs that wants the easy bucks tends to mar it with their dubious activities. Well, just like you said, in every business there must be some dishonest people, not just affiliate marketing alone. You’ve really made a lot of clarity as regards to affiliate marketing of which I myself have benefited a lot. Thank you.
