Now this is isn't something that you should just want to do but instead need to do

Now, I want to share with you a horrifying but real fact…

Now the Corona virus has left 26 million people out of work in the U.S alone! That's more than all the jobs added in the past 10 years since the Great Recession. Learning the skill to create passive income online is essential if you want to secure the future…

So if you are reading this article that means you know that your job working for someone else, working for a boss, working for a company means that you are never secure, that you could be laid off in a second while the CEOs of those companies still make millions…

If you are reading this article this means you are taking the stance of never again…

  • Never again will I let my fate be decided by someone else…
  • Never again will I let my family or myself suffer because of money problems
  • Never again will I be undervalued and underappreciated

I understand that feeling all too well. So let me know in the comment section why you want to start making money online…

Also if it's ok with you I want to share a little about myself…

You see, I met a special person while working abroad. Now you have probably have heard this story before…… a guy falls in love with a girl and wants to give her the life that she deserves (a cliche I know) but I wanted to create a future for the both of us. However, working as an English instructor in Japan, the pay was far below standard and was already hard scraping by each month….I couldn't imagine how I would be able to help support another person if I could barely support myself. This is when I realized if I wanted to create the life that I wanted for the both of us that I would have to do something about it. This was when my way of thinking began to change thanks to affiliate marketing. So I want to share with you these three core affiliate marketing secrets that will allow you to make real money online …

Now before I go into these three core affiliate marketing secrets, I want you to understand the journey I went through so you can determine for yourself if this is a journey you want to go on…

The First Voyage: To go where No Brandon Has Gone Before

You see, I knew I had to do something to change my situation; however, although I knew I wanted to do something about it I had no idea where to start.  I talked to my teaching buddies and they offered the same advice.  They told me to “Go tutor on the side” and while this was not a horrible idea I knew this meant I would just be working hard and not smart.

Now tutoring is a noble profession; however, it can take a large amount of time if you want to put together a quality, individualised lesson for your student. Not only that, but you have to coordinate with your student and find a time where it works for both of you and even then sometimes they will reschedule and you are on their clock. So  I wanted to do something where I would still be doing work but my time would be payed 2 times or 3 times over and I would be in charge of my time and how I spent it.  That is how I came across affiliate marketing.

Taking The Leap Of Faith Into The Unknown

After researching how to make money online I came across affiliate marketing.  The concept seemed simple enough… you promote other products or services and you get paid for it, EASY right?

  Wrong!!!!!!

With all the different programs and information out there I was overwhelmed by all the information that was out there.

In short, I didn't know where to begin. There were so many programs offering the secrets to “MAKE $10,000 IN A WEEK” or “BECOME A MILLIONARE WITHIN A YEAR” and honestly I didn't know what to believe.

I was going crazy trying to determine what was actual information and what was fake. I told my family and friends about my aspirations; however, although they seemed supportive they seemed doubtful of my success in this new career path that I wanted to take.

Unfortunately…I let their decisions affect me and.in the end I couldn't decide on a direction and ended up doing NOTHING about my situation for another four months.

PICKING MYSELF BACK UP

It was like wanting to go in the deep end of the pool before you knew how to even swim.   Then I FINALLY DECIDED to do something about it.  This was thanks to my one student I was helping to prepare for a speech contest.  She kept telling me about how scared and confused she was and I could see it in her eyes that this was true……the DIFFERENCE was that she continued past her fears, past her doubts and still kept trying.  Her actions took over and although she didn't end placing in the speech contest she gained something even more valuable, she gained CONFIDENCE and the willingness to go forward. Thanks to her I picked myself up and decided to go for it 100% no excuses.

Where I am today

Now, although I'm not a millionaire and I may not be making a 7 figure income YET, I am earning enough to be able to take vacations, save money and go to nice restaurants. My story is not a story of becoming rich… it is a story about going past what you are to what you can become, it is an ever changing story that has no clear ending and while the end is unknown it is one where constant…..YOU.

If you take anything else away from my story it should be that there will always be people who tell you to quit or that you are no good including yourself. DON'T listen to those voices, DON'T let them win.  Just because they are stuck in their way of life DOESN'T mean you have to do the same.  LOSERS will stick with LOSERS and WINNERS will stick with WINNERS.  So you have to ask yourself which side do you want to be on?

Stick with the people who make your life better, who add meaning to it, when you do that and believe in yourself nothing can stop you.

So I wanted to share my story with you because I know how scary it is to try something new, how uncomfortable it is to try take on a new challenge and how uncertain the future seems. But to quote Alfred from Batman “Why do we fall sir? So that we can learn to pick ourselves up.

And this is 100% true. There will be times when you fall, when you stumble in the darkness, when you don't see the light at the end of that tunnel but you can't let fear stop you from success…

Ok, I admit…the last part may have been a little emotional but I truly believe this, in order to be successful it starts with your mindset. So if you see yourself as someone who can't learn, who can't change then I'm sorry but you should stop reading now…

However, if you believe that you have the potential for change, the drive for success and the attitude to go forward then keep on reading because I'm going to give you the road map of the three core affiliate marketing secrets

But before we go in depth and really looks at these core secrets we have to first understand what affiliate marketing is and how it works…

How does affiliate marketing work?

Imagine getting paid to help people by suggesting useful products and services to them and getting paid for it! Well at it's core that is what affiliate marketing is about. It's like when you recommend a kick ass movie to one of your friends and then that friends goes and sees it based on your recommendation. Now imagine that same situation but whenever your friends goes to see a movie you get a commission of the ticket sale! All for just recommending a fantastic movie, how awesome would that be?

Not only that but unlike traditional start-up companies affiliate marketing doesn’t require expensive financial start-up costs. That is the advantage that affiliate marketing offers over the traditional sales method where you would have to first purchase the product in bulk and hope you can sell and make a profit.

Now the way it works is you have a digital platform such as a website (highly recommend using your own website), Youtube or Twitter account and you review or inform your viewers about different products or services that would benefit them and then direct them towards that product or service. Basically, the more you help people the more you will be rewarded.

How to make money using affiliate marketing

Ok, now that you know the process of how affiliate marketing works you can move onto the next step!  That is how EXACTLY do I earn money affiliate marketing?!  Unfortunately, there is no ONE SIZE FITS ALL answer to this.  However, it all starts with a niche.  Now what is a niche?  A niche is a specialized area that you are interested and knowledgeable in.

For example: If you like to build desktops and love to keep up to date with the latest technology then a profitable niche would be would be to review different parts of a desktop and compare different companies that manufacture these parts.

NOW, I want to emphasize why I said desktops instead of computers.  The reason being is because if you are too broad in what you want to promote then the greater risk of there being increased competition and less market share if you are just starting out.  Being a specialist allows you the opportunity to connect to a specific customer base so you can have greater market penetration.  This in turn creates rapport and in turn will lead to increased traffic to your platform.  Doing this YOU will become an online authority in your field, meaning people will automatically turn to you for advice and it will be easier to promote your product or service.

I mean you wouldn’t want just any old doctor performing heart surgery on you now would you?  The answer is NO!!!  You would want a heart surgeon to operate on you because they have the knowledge and expertise that the generalist DOESN’T HAVE.   Just like the heart surgeon you must have the right tools and expertise for the job.

What's Next?

Well now that you know what affiliate marketing is, and how you can earn money from it I'm going to show you the three secrets you need to be successful with affiliate marketing…

Secret 1: Why You Need To Create A Website If You Want To Succeed

Ok, so if you are serious about making money by affiliate marketing you need to have a website. Now you might say but everyone is using Youtube, Twitter or Instagram…why do I need a website?

Well the reason you need a website is because you actually own it. If you only use Youtube for example to promote your affiliate offers then guess what… if Youtube decides to shut down your account all that hard work that went into building your channel, building your subscribers and building your audience can disappear in an instant…

But by having your own website you are guaranteed to have continues traffic so that you can continue to reach more people, build a bigger audience and not live in fear of having your account terminated because of forces beyond your control.

By the way I recommend SiteRubrix if you are looking for a reliable webhosting platform. You can check them out here

Also, I made a website in under 5 minutes by using SiteRubrix which you can see how easy it is to actually use and why I recommend it especially if you have no experience coding like I do!

Secret 2: How To Find The Right Affiliate Products To Promote

Ok, so now that you have your idea for your website you are probably wondering that is great but how do I find products or services to promote? Well an easy way is just go to google and type in whatever niche you are in plus affiliate programs…

For example if you are in the iphone niche you could just type in “Iphone affiliate programs” and choose which program you want to promote from there.

Now you can do this on your own, but just be careful…

There are affiliate programs out there that can be considered shady at best and downright evil at worst. I know my one friend that sent thousands of sales towards an affiliate product only to have that affiliate program not honour their agreement and so my friend ended up not getting paid his commission!

In this video Neil Patel (Millionaire Online Marketer) Shares his 4 steps on how to choose the perfect affiliate offer…

If you want to see which affiliate programs are trustworthy then I recommend using a service like Wealthy Affiliate which has a built in affiliate program search so you can see which affiliate programs are legit…

Just remember, when looking to promote affiliate products you should focus on whether or not that affiliate product or service will solve a problem for your audience. Don't just focus on the commissions because if you only focus on commissions and don't care about the quality then you are doing a disservice to your audience and to yourself.

Secret 3: How To Drive Customers To Your Website: Create And Rank Your Content on Search Engines

So congrats! You set up your website and have found some awesome offers to promote! The only thing left is to get people to your website. So how do you do this?

Well you do this by creating awesome content so that others can find and share your content by writing blog posts. Now to create awesome content that people are actually interested in you can try to do this on your own by using Google Trends and see what is popular…

The only thing about doing this though is that you don't know exactly how competitive it will be to rank the first page on search engines like Google. So all that hard work and dedication you put into writing a blog post could not be seen by anyone at all if there are 100,000 other sites writing about the exact same topic…

Instead a better way would be is to use a SEO tool. What a SEO tool does it automatically investigates the potential of web pages for high placement on search engine ranking pages. Basically they tell you the probability of how likely it is the topic you are writing about will rank on the first page of search engines like Google and how much traffic you can expect to get from them.

If you are going this route I highly recommend using the SEO Tool Jaaxy. It's free to try and gives you all the information you need to know to make decisions on how to rank your content online. Check out the video down below to learn more about Jaaxy and actually try it out for yourself!

Conclusion

Well congrats! If you are reading this then you have made it farther then 90% of people…

Now you have a choice, you can take what you learned and take action and implement what you have learned or you can just go onto the next article and keep on reading without implementing. To quote Ra's Al Ghul from Batman“The training is nothing! The will is everything! The will to act.”

This quote is so true because if you don't act it doesn't just mean that you are standing still, it means you aren't protecting those who matter most to you. Your decisions that you make or don't make affect not only you but those around you. So be the change that you want to be in the world.

But listen, if you want to take action and want to achieve results even faster then I highly recommend checking out Wealthy Affiliate…
