Affiliate Marketing – When Will I Start Making Money?

Spread the love

That’s The golden question that every single new member asks. Normally it’s the first question or how much money can I make affiliate marketing? They normally want to know this before they even ask or know what affiliate marketing is.

Firstly, if you’re not sure what affiliate marketing is please visit my page here.

Don’t Worry About The Figures To Begin With

Yes you can make an incredible living with affiliate marketing. You can make anything from pounds, hundreds of pounds, thousands of pounds to millions of pounds. However, like I’ve mentioned in previous posts, this comes with hard work (very hard work for the millionaire status).

My advice is to set yourself short term goals and long term goals. The short term should not be anything to do with income. They should be about traffic to your site and creating quality content. The long term goals should be more financial based. For more information on setting goals click here.

Remember, quality content boosts your search engine rankings, which then provides traffic to your site. The traffic then brings sales!


Money On The Brain

Of course the whole point of affiliate marketing is to make money. However, As previously mentioned, nearly, if not all new members to affiliate marketing ask the below questions

  1. How long will it take for me to make money?riches
  2. How much can I make?
  3. How much do you make?
  4. Are you a millionaire?
  5. Can I be a millionaire?
  6. Do I have to pay or input money to be able to earn from affiliate marketing?
  7. How much money have you made today?

So I thought I’d answer them as best as I can to help shed some light on the financial side of things

Answers to the above questions:

  1. It’s pretty much impossible to honestly say as it all depends on how quickly you take to affiliate marketing and how good your content is. Normally people start to see some I come roughly around 6 months + but it all depends on your commitment.
  2. The opportunities are endless when it comes to making money. I know of millionaires, I know of people who Just earn a few hundred as ‘pocket money’ and I know of people who earn a very nice full time living from it.
  3. It’s all depends, it can very day to day but the better quality content your site has the better the traffic, therefore the better the income.
  4. Not yet.
  5. As per my comments in point 2, yes. However, this will not come overnight this takes hard work and set backs. If you quit, you’ll never know what you could have achieved.
  6. There are 2 memberships available on the affiliate platform I recommend. For more info on this platform please click here. There is the free membership, which is what it says on the tin. With this membership you have access to the best training on how to become an online marketer and create a website for free as well. There is also a premium membership which costs just $49 a month (see my comparison review here for other affiliate platforms that are far more expensive) the premium membership gives you complete access to the platform with full training and 24/7 support. See my review on the training here.
  7. Again this can depend on traffic. However, after a while income should become daily.

Hopefully the above has helped answer some very common questions.

    Excellent post. It’s important to emphasize the virtue of patience and the importance of quality content. One of my mentors in another life would often tell me…”If it were easy, I would get a monkey to do it”. One of the fallacies of online or affiliate marketing is that ANYONE can do it and you’ll make a ton of money doing it. While those are not inherently false statements folks need to understand that while anyone CAN do it, not everyone WILL do it. You can make a ton of money doing it, but those that do make a ton of money in this field have put in the hours of blood, sweat & tears…Cheers to your success!
