You really want to know what are the good affiliate sites.

and why write a review anyway

This is not a one answer fits all situation as there are many opportunities mostly depending on you.

The real question is who are the good affiliate marketers that make all the money.

In a product like Multi-Level Marketing, the people that make the money are at the top of the Pyramid.
Furthermore, they represent a very small proportion of the group. The chances of a top berth are indeed limited if indeed possible.

Affiliate marketing is different in that the individual’s effort is rewarded equally to all others.
The chance of success is therefore greatly enhanced.

Affiliate marketing depends on you as much as the product

Start your Affiliate life with a training package that will guarantee you a jumped upstart on any base you land.

Things not to do with Affiliate marketing

The internet is riddled with getting rich schemes and the affiliate area is a great source of suckers.
The promise of getting Rich, working ten minutes a day without internet is too good to resist, hey we have all tried one of these along the way and wasted our money and time.
Many of these come along the lines of training products that keep upping the cost to the next level.

One great example was a product called MOBE.
My Online Business enterprise.

The cost of joining was just $49 something we can all afford as an investment to megawealth. The second step as only $79 so not too hard but then $199.
How about $1999 but wait, as you can’t afford to miss this step we have organised finance for you.

Surely no more except the finance package has been extended to $10,000 and you will make so much money you can pay it all back in a week.
I am not exaggerating and neither was the United States Feds when they closed it down and seized all the funds, hundreds of millions of dollars.

Your finance package was the only thing that remained.

Here is what one guy had to say.

I was a mobe client and I invested about $37,000. I’m so upset to know this so called business was a scam. This is the first time I invested into anything like this and knowing this mobe was in the business for about 9 years and now get caught is a shame. I thought finally something good like this had to be legitimate with all the ads and etc I thought wow I’ll invest and hope to become wealthy. Boy did I learn a $37,000 lesson. Well please place me on the list for the refund. David A

This is a sad tale and how to avoid it happening to you

First of all, know what you are getting into. I would start with some basic training at Wealthy affiliate which is free with no expensive upsells. This gives you a basic chance of success.
Next, I would practice with Amazon the biggest and best-known Affiliate site, you probably won’t make a lot of money but you will throw the trainer wheels aside.

Follow this by knowing and understanding what you want to be in. It may be Sneakers or Swimwear, tractors or photography nearly everyone has an affiliate offer.

You can google Best affiliate marketing opportunities or even type into google a product followed by affiliates.

Places like JVZOO, commission bank, Warrior Forum
Max bounty, Share a sale all have lots of online offers. I would say a large percentage of which are not really top-class products if I am being polite.

Beware of scammers.

Some, however, are ok

There are however commission houses that handle the transactions for the entities they promote.
You may want to promote a well-known brand and that is Ok but you deal with a third party that transacts the deals.

You need to sell or you get cast Off

Being an affiliate is great but you must continue to generate sales in a proper and professional manner.

This requires your attendance at all times to maintain the momentum. An example is Amazon who has a three-month window. They need three sales or you are gone and not able to come back for a period of time

Recurring billing products can be different but ask the question upfront

These are the best products where you earn an income every month over a period of time. At Wealthy Affiliate, there are no demands but many companies do have.
I have a product I promote in the Telecommunications sector that demands three sales in three months or no recurring income.
It is not worth it to stay with underperforming entities. That is one reason for you to focus on a product and not spread your self to widely.

Affiliate Marketing is still the best game in town

Where else can you start a business with no money, no stock, no support and still earn a bucket load of money?
Returns can be great with commissions in the 40% or more range down to 5 or 6% depending on the product.

Remember however that 40% on a $20 product is not quite as good as 5% on a $1000 product.
However, you may sell a bundle more $20 products than the dearer cousins.

If you just don’t know where to start the answer is right here. You can earn and learn by clicking on the below image.

I know I push this barrow but it all starts with your learning the skills required. Going in solo will waste your time and money and delay your start and success. Even if you think you know it all there is something for you.

Free to join and start as an Affiliate on day one. It is that simple. Read the reviews of others, see the incomes made and the mistakes made as you start your journey.
Then branch out to a known and respected affiliate programme to make your millions.

It all starts with YOU

So you want to get rich making a bundle of money online with Affiliate programs that pay.

Here’s how not to do it or don’t make all the mistakes I made with Affiliate programs that pay.

I admit to being an online junkie, Having taken a bundle of courses, some for free some that cost money.

Having invested in a myriad of programs and books to learn all the things you need to know. Having spent hours in online meetings learning new things that will make me RICH.

Having played with Social media and tried many of the current trends like Facebook, Instagram. Twitter Google+ messenger, what’s app and some I can’t remember

Having set up a list building page on a niche that I had an interest in Facebook/katiehan1616 The tail of rescue cats and their activities. We did a calendar last year to sell on the site without success and ended up giving them away. The site now has a couple of thousand followers and I spend a small amount of time once a week on the site. Make money? Heck no but Having and continue to enjoy it.

Unpaid SEO

It also has given me a better understanding of how it all works for paid and unpaid SEO

The main reason I started this journey was to better my understanding of the internet for my daily business interest in Verdi messaging.

Plus, I wanted to make some money. I tried Amazon and Web backup services and a few other things along the way.

I now believe my failing was a lack of focus, trying to do everything and nothing properly.

Things have changed so much on the internet over the past few years and continue to do so at an even more rapid rate. It is very easy to fall behind and lose sight of how it all affects our lives.

Where is it all going?

I am not young anymore, well in birth years anyway and mixing with different age groups and maintaining a level of understanding really helps.

When I check my phone in the morning I need to check Facebook, Instagram, messenger. Read the news online, google email, normal email, weather and footy tips to start the day. All of these have only come into daily use within the past 10 years so it really is a keep up job.

Now if everyone is doing the same, how do we connect to them?

So I wrote a book, well two in fact because everyone needs to be a published author. Have I sold many? Not really but given quite a few away. Shame because they were pretty good.

I wrote the book mainly because my wife beat me to it and wrote her own, and it was good but not for sale.

I had a business website that did not work all that well so I wanted to do it better. My journey was to do it better at a price I was willing to pay. That would have been $1 thousand v $10 thousand a big difference

To do this you need an understanding of what it is all about to get the results you want. A bit like owning a car without an engine looks great but does not go anywhere.

Where to next

The terms like Keywords, or SEO plus images and H tags and internal over external links. Pages over posts the list is endless.

I wanted to learn and learn quickly.

Backing up a tad, when I started this journey you really needed to know HTML coding to build a site, a computer language that is a degree on its own to write effectively.

Now you have online stores, page builders and themes, menus and Apps, funnels and blogs and the list goes on.

To get this far Having files of training and how to sheets and lost time in front of a computer.

Then I stumbled on a site that brought me some clarity. Although, it was not instant.

Some clarity

Understanding all this takes time so you need to do it a chunk at a time. How you tackle it depends on what you want to achieve.

You might start with Facebook or Instagram and create a following and that is great for retail businesses.

Perhaps an email list is a way to go as you get your contacts or even an SMS message to all your clients on mobile phones.

All this is great but eventually, it comes back to needing a website, plus, importantly being found on that site.

My site new business online covers many of the parts of the puzzle but everything comes back to proper training.

Importantly it may be training you need today and need to find it easily.

Nothing on the internet today is easy, it is all a learning curve and mistakes cost you time and money.

You should understand what you are doing before you fire away. Or the car has no engine.

Facebook page

Having a Facebook page is great, for family and fiends it is easy to set up and reach your contacts quickly and follow their daily transgressions or happy times. Really good stuff.

Having a business page is different. You need to develop followers that want to know you, they need to like and trust you and go to your WEBSITE where you can sell to them.

As soon as you get out of play mode it becomes more difficult and often costly to establish your brand. It matters not if it is Facebook or Instagram or any other media you choose you need training.

No time to train, not interested then get someone else to do it for you.

Your customers come to you through the internet, in one way or another to understand the journey.

The world has changed so quickly that to keep up is a constant learning curve.

Training to learn

Every week I do an hour to hour and a half long training session with my group that covers something that you should do to maximize your chances in this brave new world.

Affiliate ​programs that pay

These small ideas build a bigger business for you and are there for all members either free or premium.

An interesting aside is you can change the speed of delivery of the message. Normal speed or 1.5 times voice or even 2 times. My intake is quite quick so I do get sometimes bored with a slow delivery in a lecture, flicking to 1.5 times focuses my attention and keeps me on the song for longer. Another internet gains.

This is really worth a try and available to anyone.

We have talked about Social media, websites, training and the many inputs to your business that you need to know.

I searched for many years for an answer and eventually found it. My problem was I didn’t realize what I had.

Affiliate Income on the web can come from many places,

You can get paid a referral bonus to a site you believe in.

Adsense pays you when people click on an Advert on your page.

You get paid a commission for selling products like Amazon

you link to a site that recognizes your code and pays you.

You promote a product you use and recommend
The commission comes as low as 1-2% up to 40 or 50% or higher. When are selling big buck items this is good.

Monthly income, you get paid every month a share of what is paid. This way you can build up a business.

Affiliate programs that pay

An Example is with Wealthy Affiliate, you get paid approx $24 a month for every paid member you recommend.

So the annual return is $272 a good return.

Does anyone make money at this?

They sure do, the top sellers at WA regularly sell over 300 a year and in fact, earn a trip to Las Vegas when they do.

Several go annually and have for years, You can build a business over time.

Learn what to do before you try what you do. This is the answer.
