Can You Make Money Online With Affiliate Marketing
Almost everyday on Wealthy Affiliate I see the question ask, “can you really make money online with affiliate marketing or is it a scam”. Well, the short answer is yes, you can make money online. Most people do fail at affiliate marketing, but it’s not because it’s a scam at all.
People start out so excited that they have discovered a work at home job and just can hardly wait for the money to start rolling in so they can buy that new sports car and move into their new mansion.
Here’s the truth about online marketing. It is not a scam! It is a real job! It is not a “Get Rich Quick scheme”! It is a real job! Just like any other job, if you want to achieve success you have to put in the time and hard work.
The way it usually happens is that you’re happy that you have a job, it may not be your dream job but it’s a job, so you are grateful. You work hard, you give it your best, you stick with it for the long term and in the end you find success.
When you go into affiliate marketing it’s the same way. You setup a website and wait for money to roll in. NOT! The reality is that once your website is set up you have to promote it meaning you have to get traffic to your site before you can make any money.
The way you do that is by posting content, lots and lots of relevant content. Your have to use social media to engage and bring prospective buyers to your site. You also have to optimize your website for search engines like google.
Your can do paid advertising as well but only as a last resort. Now back to the writing part. That is one of the Major reasons lots of people throw in the towel and quit. They think they can’t write or they just can’t think of anything to write about.(just like when I sat down to write this blog today)
When this happens to me I grab a stack of magazines and start flipping through or get up and take a walk or any form of distraction from “I can’t” with the knowledge I’m searching for a “topic”. Before I now it I have a list of things to write about.
So, back to the reason for this article. Yes, affiliate marketing is a real job.
