In this article I am going to delve into ‘how to learn affiliate marketing’, especially for those new to the affiliate marketing industry or new to online income sources as a whole.
Making money online is becoming more popular by the day, with more and more people looking to start online business and create an income for a myriad of reasons, including, but not limited to the following;
- Quest to find job replacing incomes online for those who are poorly remunerated at their jobs or those who do not like their jobs. Its common to have people who are stuck at their workplaces because they simply have no other option, lest they will not be able to earn an income for their upkeep (and that of their families).
- Some people are looking for extra sources of income besides their job or business. Also, to note is that there is an ever-increasing cost of living burden in many countries at the moment so many people are looking to increase cash flow, and online sources of income come in handy to supplement current sources.
- Some people are simply jobless, with or without education we all know that unemployment is a phenomenon that most people face and some of these people look around on the internet for Income sources
- Students in colleges, universities and other educational institutions are increasingly getting involved with online money making programmes

Understand affiliate marketing
Affiliate marketing is a method of making money online that entails one selling, or facilitating the selling of a product online that he or she has not produced/manufactured with the view of being paid a commission, which is often calculated as a percentage of the value of the good/service that is being sold.
In a nutshell, we can say that affiliate marketers provide a connection between product sellers and/or service providers with buyers and get rewarded for facilitating this, more often by the seller.
Why affiliate marketing?
Affiliate marketing is the biggest method of making money online I reckon and has, and will continue to provide decent income to people venturing online.
With advancement in technology, and the modernization process that is ongoing world over, E-commerce is increasing exponentially and the world is shifting towards doing business online rather than offline. Buying and selling of goods and services has been eased and hastened, and efficiency of trade bolstered with online marketing.
To be able to tap into the affiliate marketing cake, one needs to gain training in the field to be able to do it effectively, and most importantly profitably.
Its paramount that you attach yourself to the best teachers there are, who are very skilled and have got the expertise and experience to guide you through. You need a platform that can ‘ride’ with you all the way, and does not allow you to have complications in your journey.
The bottlenecks to learning affiliate marketing
Much as more and more people are venturing into affiliate marketing, it’s not necessarily an easy ride to the newbie. Infant, affiliate marketing is quite the nightmare for new people starting out online as the learning curve can be excruciating and tiresome.
Many have given up on the way as it’s not easy if one does not have proper training. A lot of people have also fallen prey to scam syndicates and dishonest individuals that swindle money from unsuspecting newcomers.
Others have simply gotten stuck or given up altogether due to not getting results at all, or not getting good results
The other big challenge is not having the required tools to be able to run the business. You need websites, domains, hosting, relevant word press plugins, auto-responder, keyword research tools among others.
Finances are also a challenge to many starting out and even to fairly older marketers in the game that are not making good profit yet, or no profit at all.
The method I picked
Having looked at the challenges that are there for affiliate marketers, and especially new comers to the industry, we see that it’s important to have a platform that offers an elaborate method which is particularly newbie friendly.
I happen to have some experience with online money making methods, and in this case to affiliate marketing. I had so many struggles as I started out about a year ago, lost a lot of money to scams, ended up paying exorbitant fees for mediocre platforms and tools.
However, I never gave up and finally I came to learn about a platform that I reckon is like no other.
