Fast Easy Money Online is Yours Today!

fast easy money online

If you believe this ⇑I have A bridge 4sale

I know that seems a little harsh but I keep seeing this kind of nonsense all day long and the only fast easy money online is the green stuff those people behind all the false headlines are making!!

Yes, it is a pet peeve of mine…you guessed that right on the nose.  That probably means you are no stranger to this or you are new to finding an online business that you could do that is the real deal and not some made up fast easy money online story.

I was in both of those situations and believe me I know how easy it is to get ‘sucked in’ for lack of a better way to say it.  We all want to believe these people.  I mean their words seem so sincere…awesome copywriters…and the Internet is fast paced so why couldn’t you earn just as quickly.


The Truth to Fast easy Money online today

Here is the truth.  Some people have genuinely made money pretty quickly online so that is not unheard of.  BUT, those people have a lot of knowledge about how to build a website, do a landing page, SEO, marketing, social media and the list goes on.  Do you have that knowledge?  The majority do NOT.  I didn’t and I fell hard and lost more than I had to spend.  Same story, different day for way too many of you!

And that is why what I would like to do today is be a guiding hand that shows you the best routes to take to find success.  But, before we begin, so much will depend on your knowledge of:

there is no free easy money online

  • The computer
  • Building a Website
  • Finding a Niche

And those are just some very basic things.   SO EVEN having some knowledge will help because you have that basic understanding, but what I am talking about is being just a teensy bit more knowledgeable than that.  And you know, if you think about it, this is what those people rely on so heavily.  The fact that so many do not have the knowledge they need is how they sell you on the fast easy money online routine!

What happens here is so many get lost very quickly and realize they are in way over their heads!  Not only does this play a huge roll in self-confidence flying out the window, but trying to get your money back and cancel any memberships can be a tedious affair.  Most sites are pretty good about that now as their reputation with the e-commerce providers is higher and more at stake than their public reputation.  But it is still a pain while you wait and see if they will honor their word.


What You need to be on the look-out for


I am going to keep this simple and direct as that is the best way I have found when it comes to a trust thing.  

#1.  Are there more ‘shiny objects’ ( this is a syndrome so many of us have had) than simplicity.  Is the page you landed on going on and on and on like Uncle Lester does about his war stories?  Are there stories of loss and failure and living on the street until they were rescued?  

#2  They offer a trial period for a low price of say $7.00 or free for a time period BUT and this is huge my friend…they want you to put your credit card information in advance!!  

#3.  As you move thru the purchase cycle you are offered one, two, and then three more options to spend more money, because you need this to really succeed at a higher rate of speed!  This is what is called an ‘Up-sell’.  

Your role in the online home business arena

Yes, you do play a huge role in all of this and you do have to be responsible.  I know, we don’t like to be hauled up on the carpet but if you want to see some sort of success or find where you can learn this is *****important!

Really pay attention to what you are reading BEFORE you make any decisions.  One you could possibly miss something that is crucial to you having success.  I see this every day where people who are new to this online business world have missed some key points.  

This tells me they are either ‘skim reading’ or not paying attention to what it is that is required of them to be successful.  I am part of a community and training platform where the training is not only very clear and concise but also points out what you will need to do and the steps you need to take to get started.

Once you know you cannot cry foul play or anything when it comes to fast easy money online

If you miss the target folks, especially when it is crystal clear on what it is you get and for what and how much you need to do to reach that level of success you need to take responsibility for the part you played or didn’t play if that fits.  

I know that feels harsh but please trust me here.  If you can take responsibility for your role in your choices and actions or lack of, you will be that much closer to success and be saying goodbye for good to easy fast online money ideas that just don’t work.  The truth is they never did and they never will.  Are there ways around this?  You bet.

Set your goals higher

There is a really fun saying that some of you may know or have heard before.  It is “Go Big or Go Home” and that certainly applies to setting goals and dreams.  The first thing you need to do is ask yourself how much money would I be happy earning monthly?  How much money would I be over the moon happy earning?  

NO!!  Don’t even think that!  Just think about what might be and what would you be seriously happy with.  I like to set my goals a little higher than I know I could reach right away, but not so high that it would be insanely impossible to do!  Here is an example of what I mean:

You have just started training for a new career in sales and marketing.  You know you are good in sales but you do not know your new market yet.  You set one lofty goal of $2,000.00 a week and those over the moon happy goals are triple that!  Remember, you are new to this market and you have a lot to learn.  You Do Not Know What is Involved.

Can you honestly say that you believe these goals are going to be reachable in a short period of time?  Probably not.  Sorry   I know, I know!  All those books tell us to just put out the biggest goal targets ever!  Don’t worry about whether you can achieve this or not, just write it down!   

Here is where it gets interesting.  If your goals are too low there is no challenge to push yourself to higher ground.  If your goals are totally unattainable, you risk quitting on you and your dreams.  What about a more modest goal to start out with and then when you achieve that first goal you set it one step higher?  

To back this up here is another goal target and this was mine so I can tell you honestly it did work.  I was working on a monetary goal for this one but it can be any kind of goal.   On my day sheet calendar, I wrote down in very small letters for only my eyes to see, $100.00.  My target goal was $3,000.00 a month.  Did I expect this to happen right away?  No, most definitely not.  Did I expect it to work at some point?  Yes, I most certainly did.  And I just kept writing it down.  Once I started to see my daily goals being reached I then and only then increased that daily goal to $150.00.

Can you see where and how this can work for you?  Can you see how this could lead to more rather than less or plain just giving up?  I hope so because it can and does happen and not just for me.   When you believe in you and when you have a dream that yes, is bigger than you, and you set realistic targets you can make it happen.

take it to the next level because easy fast money online does not exist

Your Goals are done so what comes next?

Here is where once again you need to be responsible. Nine key points to address.  

  • How much knowledge do you have about getting started online?
  • Do you have enough to set out on your own and build an online business?  Awesome if you do! 
  • Do you have a niche all picked out?  ( WHAT IS A NICHE??? )
  • Do you have enough money set aside for at least 6 months? ( no free is not forever )
  • Where will you host your site? 
  • Is this going to be an authority post with you as an affiliate? 
  • Or, will you be doing a drop shipping style business? 
  • Who will host your website? 
  • Do you have your own domain name?

We have reached a crucial point in deciding which way to go.  Up, down or sideways.  Up would be recognizing what you don’t know and finding out where to learn.  Down is over and out and I am so sorry I scared you today.  Sideways is yup, you have the basics down and you want to choose a different path.  One that still has a learning curve but width basic understanding is being done every day.

It once again comes down to you and your choices.  Here is a post which opens up another possibility for anyone going sideways!    It is a clearer understanding of Drop Shipping and the costs which could be incurred.  There are other routes but this shows two of the most popular as far as researching goes.

Now let’s address that first one.  Up!  When you don’t want to go anywhere else this is where you go.  Don’t let your fears get in the way of action.  Sometimes in life, we just have to dig in and go for it.  Simple as that and here is where you can make that happen.  No, it will not be overnight and it will not be easy money…but it is happening for many so I encourage you to have a look.  It will be worth every minute.

Straightforward and simple approach to what works and the steps you need to take to make it happen.  Doesn’t get much better than this!  Here is what you can expect to see.

  1.  No CC required to join
  2.  2 Free Websites 
  3.  Free is a forever free choice.  Yes, it will be more difficult but it is being done.
  4. One only upgrade offered EVER and all for less than $2.00 per day ( by choice )
  5. Free hosting with your upgrade and up to 25 websites
  6. Training and community support is 24/7 members extra training for you.

What I loved the minute I stepped foot into this platform’s backend was the obvious sincerity of every member.  With rules in place, you can rest assured there are no underlying reasons people reach out to welcome you and offer help and support.  I have been on many and I always found that there was another reason people were saying hello.  Yes, it was to promote their own business to me or their MLM or direct sales offers.  That will not and does not happen here.  What a breath of fresh air.

And of course, as we all know, or should know by now when you come online to do a home business it is about making money.  So why would we even think for a minute in time that there would be no costs involved for us to make a boatload of cash?  Why do we expect others to do all the work for us for Free?  Oh, I know!  It is because for as long as I can remember we have been told that it is free easy money online for anyone!  Wrong.  

You have to put food on the table for your family, correct?  And so do those people who have gone the extra mile to teach us everything they know so we can see success too.  Yes, I agree 100% that some of these people are over-the-top expensive, and that is sad.  But, not everyone is like that.  Here is where I am offering you the perfect opportunity to do a test run and make your own choices based on your needs.

Are you ready to see where this awesome opportunity for you to learn is?  Good.  If you should choose to follow your instincts and have a look I will be sure to welcome you and offer you one more priceless gift should you want to continue on.  You won’t believe this and it goes to show you that not everything that appears too good to be true is!  



Comments and shares are something I look forward too.  Please take a minute and say Hi or share your thoughts, even ask a question or two.   Even better for some who are shy is the quick share via one of our social pages.  Just do a click and go but either way, know you are appreciated.

And that’s all she wrote!     The keyboard is now in your hands.

Best Ways to Make Money Online Fast


make money online fastCan I Really Make Money Online Fast Like they Say?


I don’t want to burst any bubbles here today, but I think that might just happen.  You see, if YOU are like me and have run across tons of work at home opportunities making silly, almost ridiculous claims that they have some magical system that is going to make you hundreds of dollars you know that they really are ridiculous.  You have that figured out by now, right?

I know!  It’s easy to fall for some of the pitches with all the glitz and glamour and besides all that, the Internet being so fast, it makes sense that this is how you should see it.  Yeah, those ‘guru’y’ guys are really counting on that.

Or maybe you’ve been pitched by someone you considered a friend, but they are now acting like a cult member following your every move!  It feels like you are being continuously harassed to join their “life-changing-” business opportunity.   No thanks.   Been there, done and the high-pressure sales techniques are not for me anymore.

It had appealed to me at one time, and yes I did make some money and some pretty big prizes but It was still such a struggle, and I eventually burned out.  I didn’t quit, I just took a new route to find a way to make money online that was substantial, legitimate and realistic.   For me, it had to be this way with the heaviness being on legitimate!

The ‘A’ Typical fake yachts, expensive cars


make money online fast

I searched and I found!  And to my pleasant surprise, there was none of that and the website that came up in my search was really understated!!   I was still skeptical but decided to jump in with both feet getting wet and see for myself what this was all about.  When I did my research this Wealthy Affiliate University platform came up repeatedly!  That said so much to me.  You can’t buy those positions!

I think the first thing I noticed was the honesty and straightforward no-nonsense kind of approach and this had me doing my happy dance!  So what did I find out?  That this is real and there is no hype or silliness like we see so much of today.  AND, I got to test it out, no CC required or ‘pay ahead’ cause we know you will love our kind of stuff!!  Nope.

My Fairest Judging of WA 

Kind of like who is the fairest of them all, except this, is no fairy tale!  Wealthy Affiliate (aka WA) is basically a training site & community that teaches you how to build YOUR OWN WEBSITE, a realistic income online working with major companies such as Amazon and so much more.

Most home based business plans require a start-up fee and require that you be promoting a product you may not really love or know anything about. You also usually have to chase people down to buy these products in order to make money.  In other words recruit, recruit, recruit!  Like being in the damned Army.  No no, nothing wrong with that at all.  In fact, we are very grateful to many countries for those people who sacrifice so much for us.  Please know, it was the recruitment phase I was referring to, so please don’t bite my head off just yet!  

Wealthy Affiliate is FREE and is about creating an online business around your interests or passions you have.  It is designed so people will come to you looking for your recommendation and feedback.   And you can get paid to help people with your helpful information about products or services from companies that will solve their problems. These companies pay you for referring folks to them.  This is called Affiliate Marketing.

How Does Wealthy Affiliate Work?

So let me break the process into a little more detail for you.  Once you’ve signed up for a FREE membership it’s basically nothing more than 4 steps that anyone can do. The only requirement is that you’re able to read, watch videos, stay focused and take action.  Wealthy Affiliate is a training platform that takes care of most everything else right there in your training, as well as having live 24/7 support and tools that are there for you.

Those 4 little Steps for you all nicely broken down.

#1.  Do you Have Something you love doing or is of importance or an interest to you?

In other words, what would you love to do EVEN if you didn’t get paid?

  • What topics are you passionate about?
  • What do you spend most of your time doing for fun?
  • Do you have experience in any field?
  • Have an idea for a website?

You can build an online income around any of these things. Even if you don’t have any ideas WA provides options for you. My greatest passion was looking for honest, legitimate ways to make extra income online.  That is how I came to be doing this blog.

#2  Create a website:

Whaaat!!!  I thought you said this was easy to do?  What the heck is so easy about making a website?  I am not going to tell you any lies or give you false hope with any hype like if you know how to click on some buttons and watch a video that’s all you need to do to build a website.  OR you can do this in 30 seconds.  ( well actually it can be done, but there is more so I am just going to skip that part.)

On a positive note, you don’t need any technical experience in making websites. The sites are pre-built so anyone can create one.  These are called themes and Wealthy Affiliate uses WordPress like so many other companies do now.  Actually, WA gives  2 free websites to their Free members as well as upgraded members.   If my simple Suzie self can create a website you can too!   But you can see for yourself.  Just click right about HERE and you will be taken to the video instruction.

3. Getting visitors

To make money online, your website needs to get traffic (visitors/people, potential customers). Finally, you don’t have to harass your family and friends. People could come to you from all over the world via search engines like Google for FREE. These folks actually want what you have on your site! And a bonus for you… WA’s training will teach you how to get these visitors, potential customers to your website so you can eventually make money. All from home on your computer!No more having to host parties or recruit your friends and their friends OR family members and social media friends. This is passive income and involves YOU! And Just You.


#4  Make Some Money Honey!

make money online fast

No not quite like that.⇑    That’s one of those big misconceptions we see out there!!   What you will be doing, as an affiliate marketer is sharing reviews or specific information with your visitors about the products or service they are looking for.   You could call this a Niche.  OR another way to look at this is,   A Niche market is often created by identifying what a customer wants or what the customer needs.  Your job is to then try to deliver a better solution or product to fix the problem.

A great example could be sports or gardening.  If you have a love for either it will make this a whole lot of fun as you share the best tools or equipment that is related to either one of these.  The coolest thing about this is there is no cost to be an affiliate of any program or company that offers these kinds of programs.  I am talking about Amazon, WalMart, Google, and so many more.

Free programs where they allow you to put their products and services on your site. Then you get paid whenever someone clicks, buys or request free information as a result of these links on your site which are tracked back to you. This is an affiliate program.

Back to Wealthy Affiliate & How Much YOU Can Make

Here is where a lot of people get mixed messages.  I see this often in the community when new members are asking questions relating to this.  You are not actually working for Wealthy Affiliate.  Yes, do offer an affiliate program but you are not required to promote WA.  But, you would be wise to do this as it is one of the highest paying on the Internet.  Putting that aside for a minute…WA is a Learning website or teaching platform.  Thus the University tag.

So many people today do what we call ‘skim reading’ and they miss some really important points.  Like how they will eventually earn an income online after they learn how in the training.  For a lot of people, you’ll be joining other affiliate programs that relate to your Niche.   How much you earn per company or action will vary.  The best part of being an affiliate marketer is you can be affiliated with several companies thus making your earning potential that much higher.

So that’s pretty much the process simplified. Wealthy Affiliate obviously goes into way more detail with their training and support.  Ultimately the sky is your limit because your website can be about any topic and there are literally millions of people looking online for information and products to help them solve their problem.

I am going to briefly sum things up with a tiny bit more information to help you.  Who is Wealthy Affiliate For?  Fortunately, it is open to anyone looking to make some real money online. If you’re patient, willing to work hard and can follow directions Wealthy Affiliate is for you. You don’t need any previous experience because you will be trained. It is not for anyone looking to make money online fast.

So if you are a:

  • stay at home Mom or Dad
  • senior or soon to retire without the funds to do so
  • anyone with health issues that require you to work from home
  • students
  • or just anyone looking to make a little extra for holidays or ??

Do you want to Make online Money fast?


make money online fast                                                                     How Much Again?

Wealthy Affiliate has two membership price points that fit everyone’s budget, even if you have none to start with.  First, we have your Starter Membership which is FREE!  See, that wasn’t so hard, was it?  Yup, I know you’ve heard that nothing good is free anymore, but that is completely wrong when it comes to WA.  Trust me, you have to see this to believe it.

When you join as a Starter member, you are provided with instant access to the Wealthy Affiliate community. This includes access to live chat, training modules,  there are 500 training modules so that takes a bit of time and patience, 2 training classrooms, and one live weekly training.  Networking, commenting with the community, 2 free websites, and access to the keyword tool.

Here once again is where a bit of confusion comes in.  Either from the skimming or from a person or site that was misinformed a little bit themselves.  You can try WA FREE for one week or choose to:

  1. Upgrade to a Premium Membership.  If done within your first week you will get a bonus of a huge discount.  Premium is $49.00 a month or your first month at $19.00.  I would do that for sure!  I mean seriously!  You have another 30 days to test the training and see if it is the best fit for your needs.  If not, read on…
  2. you can remain FREE forever if you like.  Just keep in mind the ‘extras’ will not be available.  To me, this makes perfect sense.  I mean the founders need to put food on the table for their family just like you are trying to do.
  3. You can cancel your membership at any time but why would you?

Most paid products out there don’t even compare to Wealthy Affiliate’s FREE Starter membership. There is nothing that offers this much for so little on the Internet today.  It’s a great way to get started with your new online business and determine if WA is for you.

Yes, you can have some limited success just with the free starter membership.  It will be somewhat, okay a whole lot harder to be honest.  And to be totally upfront with you, you will not make money online fast here.   So if you find that you need more ongoing training, support, and tools, then you may want to consider…what I have already mentioned above.  Especially if you are serious about starting a home business for the least expense.

Ultimately, you always have options.  The Premium Membership is only an option and what I really appreciated was there were no Upsells!!!  I am perfectly serious.  Just this one time only upgrade.  Again, at $49.00 a month you cannot lose, no way, no how! 

I am going to suggest you try the FREE starter membership. This way you can see if this business is for you without anything to lose. Not many business opportunities are confident enough in their business to let you try it totally free. So I think that speaks volumes for WA.  If You don’t like it,  if it is not what you were looking for, you lose nothing.  At least you had a look and tried it.

Are U Ready to try it free?  I am a live banner so go ahead and click on me and I will take you to where you need to be.

make money online fast is not happening here


Now, You have reached the bottom of the post and here is where I love to turn the keyboard over to my guests at this point.  So, comments, thoughts, and questions are more than appreciated.  Have you been taken on a wild goose chase being told you can make money online fast?  Are you ready to become that awesome person you know you are?  Good on you.  The comment box is below.

Have an Awesome Day Now!

How This Blogging Newbie Found Affiliate Success

     affiliate success               

                     ⇑They Did It!!⇑phone talking to guy

  Finding Affiliate Success

Affiliate Success? What the heck is an affiliate?  Have you considered Affiliate Blogging and wondered ‘How Did They Do That?’  I certainly did but didn’t have a clue as to how to go about learning how or where for that matter.  I suppose I could have looked for a book, but they don’t really give you enough real information on what an affiliate does.   There are a lot of those guys that call themselves GURUS and MENTORS who are falling all over you and offering help if you visit their website.  

Question is are they really going to help you learn how to find affiliate success?

When you first visit a lot of websites offering help or to teach you ‘stuff’ they use what is called a Capture Page!  Know why?  YUP, this is where they capture your email so they can send you a free report or a free training you can attend.  Yup. Not always a bad thing.  (You will probably even use one at some point in your business.)  That’s what that is.  Not usually used when blogging but I didn’t know at the time. I wanted to do the blogging thing and earn some money.  That meant I needed to become an affiliate, which I had no flipping clue about either!

Finding the Right One

Have I ever been captured?  Oh YES!! and what an experience that was. I was held captive by a few for long periods of expensive time!  But if the information is good and affordable and honest then a capture page like that, I wouldn’t mind.  Most aren’t and the fancier the website, the worse they are are for teaching you the real goods.  Show me a splashy, sparkly site that does and I will eat a can of spinach!

How did I go about finding what I think is the simplest yet the best-est training for affiliate success on the Internet today?  I did a google search and after a few try’s using different search phrases ( I didn’t know how to do that very well then) I found an article that was ‘talking right to me’!  It was everything I had not been able to quite articulate AND it was what I had wanted all along.  So, yup, off I went to school.  Bootcamp actually!

WA Affiliate Bootcamp


Going to Bootcamp

It was here where I learned that Blogging is easier to make money with than I had imagined.  It is called an Affiliate Marketing Online Business.  You set up your Blog with a specific Niche in mind  ( a niche is a group of people looking for what you have to share with them)  Let’s say you choose baby car seats as your niche.  Your target market is going to be the people looking for baby car seats, which are parents.  This is the topic you would be blogging about.  And that is a niche!  

It was so much fun to learn these things that I thought were so difficult.  Like a Niche!  I had no clue but when it was broken down it was /is easy to understand.  And that is how all the training is.  Easy to understand and easy to implement if you follow what is being taught for affiliate success.  Freaking Awesome!!! 

What You Don’t Need

You do not need any special affiliate marketing software to do this.  There are a lot of Guru types that have realized how Affiliate Marketing is Trending and want to get in on the action.  They create all kinds of “shiny goods” that they claim will do all the work for you and you will have to do nothing but they would be foolin’ ya! 

It does not happen like that.  You will see sites that offer to do your copywriting and your templates and themes are all done and yadda yadda yadda!  NOT.  Do Not Buy Into this.  For heaven’s sake, WordPress has some of the most awesome themes for you and they are free!!!!  You can do this a lot easier than you think.  I DID, so stop falling for the jibber age they feed us.

ceo of your affilliate life

My Best Ever Shout OUT!  I mean EVER!!

Would you like to see what I think is the best  Marketing Program available for affiliate success?  You can do FREE or for an upgrade that is PENNIES on the DOLLAR!   The Best part is you can stay free as long as you feel you need to.  

Here is What you will learn To Do:

  1. How to set up your website or Blog
  2. To build your own traffic producing site
  3. Mastering Keywords and SEO
  4. Content Marketing
  5. How to find your Niche
  6. Social Media Marketing & Sharing Content
  7. Monetizing your Site or Blog
  8. You become the Expert
  9. Create campaigns to attract readers
  10. Be cost-effective and efficient and generate traffic

Who’s Got Your Back?

The WA community support is the very best.  Everyone is there to help.  There are no underlying reasons to befriend anyone and no marketing to members of other members.  We are all there for one reason.  To be the best damn marketers and have successful home-based businesses.   We are there to help each other be successful in their own business not in yours.Affiliate partners

I still get a little too Chatty Cathy about this but I am excited and I want everyone to have the same opportunity and not be spending money you don’t really have to spend.  I don’t care what anyone else says, bigger and splashier is NOT ALWAYS BETTER!!  And doing things a bit differently is a good thing as well.

Those who are successful and used this platform is the best way for me to show you this can happen for you too!  Look at these numbers that have been achieved.

The Best Business in2018 Comes Down to 2 Choices!

the best business in 2018

The Best Business in 2018 comes down to Two Choices!  What will yours be?  Do you know if you are making the right choices?  Great questions when it comes to any business in 2018 or beyond.   Let’s see if we can clarify a few things and get you off to a great start this year.

Have you been thinking about starting your own business this year? You might have asked yourself, where do you start and how what and where do I begin. Hopefully, I can help answer some of your questions.

The Best Business in 2018

I am going to suggest two of the easiest and least expensive ways to begin a business from home without purchasing any products yourself. Will there be costs incurred along the way? Yes, but that should make sense to you. I mean you are looking to start a home business for the same reason as those that are teaching you how or offering you the platforms to make it simpler, correct?
Of course, it is. They have to put food on the table for their family just like you want to do. I know, it is a pet peeve of mine that so many people have been led down the garden path paved in gold! The rainbow is not at the end of that road and the sooner we accept that nothing is ever going to be 100% free and clear in a business then we are off to a good start.

Costs incurred are not always necessary right away. There are ways to try things for free and know before you commit that this is something you can see yourself doing.

Let’s Get Down to Business and the Real Deal

The two choices I am sharing with you are:

#1. Affiliate Marketing
What is Affiliate Marketing? In the simplest definition, it is a way for a company to sell its products by signing up individuals ( YOU ) also known as (“affiliates”) who market the company’s products for a commission. … As the individual, you get paid a commission from the company whose products you are recommending on your blog or website.

Now, that is the simple form. Where do you find these company’s and how do they pay you? Again, let’s go for a simple explanation. There are company’s that act as the go-between of you and the products which is the easiest as there are so many company choices in one place.

You must apply to each company you wish to be affiliated with and they will look at your site and say Yay, or Nay. It is usually a Yay unless it is a very large conglomerate who demands a lot of traffic already established. You are assigned a number also known as your affiliate ID which is used on your site so that if someone visits your page, clicks on the product you are sharing you get paid a commission.

One or two of the more known sites/platforms like this are ShareaSale and Linkshare or Rakuten. There are a lot and easy to find once you have some knowledge under your belt about how this actually works.
Amazon is another that offers an affiliate program and many bloggers and marketers use Amazon. For Digital only they use ClickBank. Each is basically the same as you having an affiliate ID attached to you so you can be paid.

# 2. DropShipping What is drop shipping?.

In simple terms, drop shipping allows you to sell products online, without you actually having to store or ship the inventory yourself. There is no third party commission being paid. You are paid directly by your potential customer.  Your ‘job’ is to place their order with your supplier, pay for the product at your costs and the supplier ships direct to your customer.

product cost to consumer= $20.00 Your cost to supplier=$10.00 Your profit $10.00

Are you Interested in learning exactly how dropshipping works? If you are there are again two ways that I will suggest you pay attention too. Yes, one is Shopify. Very well know and trusted by not only the person looking to start their own business but by the consumer. They have excellent marketing and equally excellent training and help available to you.

Oberlo is connected to Shopify and is free to set up. As is Shopify free to try for 14 days. I tested this and yes, you can set up a shop in less than 14 days so you know ahead if this could be for you.
Here is how it looks:
Oberlo-Alliexpress-Shopify ( Alliexpress is where you will find the best certified and trusted suppliers out there. And you need to know you can trust them!! Imperative)

Or Alidropship

Now the second way to go about this is if you already have a WordPress site or you at least know how to set up a WordPress storefront or blog. Alliexpress is also Alidropship which allows you to purchase ( a one time fee) plugin that will set up the integration of products to your site plus many other added extra features. This is the lowest cost I have seen in all of the drop shipping platforms and the one I trust the most other than Oberlo and Shopify.  It all comes down to a matter of costs and your knowledge of WordPress.

They also offer a one time set up where the site (storefront) is all done for you. This is again a one time cost but much higher than the plugin of course. If you do not know what you are doing, this is the route to take and is worth your hard earned dollar going out ONE TIME.

And Yes, they offer all kinds of help, training, and updates you may need. You will never be totally alone figuring things out. That is their promise.

Shall we Do the HOW now?

The what and where is covered pretty much as it is made simple and easy to understand. The How is a little more time consuming and you will need a few things to complete this and be successful if you want the best business in 2018 to be yours.

a. Patience
b. Focus
c. Afford $49.00 a month for 3 to 6 months while learning

Top Rated Affiliate Programs That worked in 2017

where you can learn from the top rated affiliate program

Top Rated Affiliate Programs work in 2017 & now in 2018


You may be wondering whether the program you joined is one of the top rated affiliate programs, or you are still asking what is an affiliate program.  Perhaps have been thinking about this as a way to earn extra cash from home.  Others are, so why not you?

No matter what they tell you, when you first start out in any Affiliate Sales, you will not make money right out of the gate so it is best to keep your ‘day job’ for now.    It can and has happened in as short as 3 months time but that is not the ‘norm’.  It is usually 6 months or more.

Also, you need to stay away from those programs that are offering you a business in a box or one click and you are done sort of things. The truth is, and no one really wants to hear this, but you will have to put some effort in to be successful.

Will you actually be successful? That is up to you but I have acquaintances making a full time living as affiliate marketers. And Yes, I get that it is hard to know who is telling the truth. Been there, done that, lost 1/2 my shirt!! So I can relate and even emphasize with you.

Before we Begin with the top rated affiliate programs, we need the definition of what an affiliate is and how it works.

According to the Book of Wikipedia:

according to the books the top rated affiliate programs are here

Affiliate marketing is a type of performance-based marketing in which a business rewards one or more affiliates for each visitor or customer that purchases thru their affiliate link.

A simpler explanation may be that this is a way for a company to sell its products by signing up individuals (you) as”affiliates” who market the company’s products for a commission. Your goal in affiliate marketing is to earn commissions for recommending services or products on your website/blog. You would be best to join more than just one Affiliate program.

You should never be asked to pay a fee to be an affiliate for any company. Some company’s that you can affiliate with like Walmart or Amazon never ask you for money.
If you have a content website (Blog) and you have a passion for something you want to share with others then affiliate marketing could be for you.

5 Top Rated Affiliate Programs

#1. Amazon

Amazon is highly popular with many marketers and they have several options for you. You can be an affiliate or a seller. We will only talk about the affiliate part today.
Why Amazon? Amazon is almost like a household name. I mean, seriously, who hasn’t heard of Amazon? You can pretty much get anything there today. If you are not sure about what products you should target, Amazon has a lot of help for you in choosing what is trending or the best sellers.

Downside if there is one, is you must make a sale in your first 90-180 days or get the ‘boot’. You can re-apply, so no problem other than a bruised ego maybe. This may sound like plenty of time, and actually, it is, Unless you are brand new and do not have a lot of traffic ( visitors ) to your website.

Tip: Have at least 10 blog posts on your site and pics that are related before you apply to be an affiliate. They will look at your site.

Amazon also recently implemented the one link. This basically means you can sell products in the US. Canada and the UK. and all you need is one link. This is set up on Amazon and if you are in either Canada or the UK you will need to open a US account first and then add your UK and Canadian links.

And that makes Amazon one of the Top rated affiliate programs online.

Amazon is a top rated affiliateprogram

#2 ShareASale

An affiliate marketing network or that services two customer sets in affiliate marketing. You, the affiliate, and the merchant you want to be affiliated with. Affiliates use ShareASale to find products to promote and earn commission for referrals on those products.

They have a wide selection of some of the best company’s offering affiliate programs to earn commissions with. Company’s you might not think would offer an affiliate program. When I found Stella & Dot was offering an affiliate program separate from there offline party plan I was surprised. ShareASale handles this for Stella & Dot.

Once you are a member of ShareASale you will be able to apply to all the company’s they have listed in the back office. Makes it so convenient to have everything in one place. Shareasale is one of the most trustworthy ✓ and reliable resources for affiliate marketers like you and me. And that is why it is considered to be one of the top rated affiliate programs.

#3 Clickbank

If you want to Sell software online this is the network that boasts some of the highest commissions in an Affiliate Network. 75%!

Clickbank is an internet retailer of top quality lifestyle digital based products. One of the more popular platforms for buying and selling information products. If your website or Blog is geared to new people, beginners to affiliate marketing or marketing of any nature, they would be looking for ‘how to help’. Digital makes sense as it is right now, done and on your potential customer’s computer.

Clickbank is the perfect platform for anyone who considers themselves digital geeks. It can be a little confusing at first, but most platforms offering you a lot of information to help you can be. Take it nice and slow, and you will do great.

#4 Wealthy Affiliate University

best training and top rated affiliate program

Slow Down and Learn

Not all affiliate marketing is a physical product or digital products you download to your computer. No, there are platforms that offer to teach you everything you need to know to set up a home business. This is a service as there are no physical products involved.

Wealthy Affiliate offers one of the highest commissions I have seen for their affiliates and in the industry. In my personal opinion after looking at several, Wealthy Affiliate offers the most comprehensive training courses for both beginners and advanced.  This is where I learned and still learn.  It is one of the ones you have to see to believe it.  It just sounds so cheezy us saying it is the best.  But it really is!   

Other platforms I looked at seemed overly complicated with nothing being on the same page so-to-speak. Some were just too expensive for the average person while others taught you only enough to make it look good for the amount of money they charged. In fact, you were/are encouraged to recruit others into the program and that was how you made an income from home.

Don’t be fooled! When you are thinking of having a home business in 2018, here is your #1 to research first. When you see people, just like you and I coming back after a year or OR staying for 3 ++years, doesn’t that tell you something? Actions do speak louder than words.

One last thing is this top rated affiliate program did not get that title for doing or offering nothing. Wealthy Affiliate University has withstood the test of time and is still thriving. This is huge! Do you know how many people start up a business online only to be gone within 6 months to a year?
If this was as easy as some would have you believe, wouldn’t we all be doing this? Wouldn’t we all be rich and in vacation mode hanging out with family? It is not easy, but if you have the right instruction and support it is not that hard either.

#5 WordPress
I have loved WordPress Since the Day I learned how to use it!!

wordpress is one of the top rated affiliate programs

WordPress is not difficult to use if you have the correct information and someone teaching you step by step. You would be amazed at just how fast this part can come together.  I am a visual learner and I could do this quite comfortably after my initial training.

A WordPress back office is where you can customize your site and set up your blog. Choose your theme free or paid ( always an option) Set up your widgets and add plugins to make life easier.  Get your free site right here and see how you feel.  It is easy peasy to do!

Don’t worry if you don’t know what those are. They only sound complicated but believe me, after a couple of times of implementing them you will be very comfortable.
One of the most outstanding things about WordPress, and why it is also considered one of the top-rated platforms to use, is because it is free! You will have to acquire your own domain name which is kind of like your street address if you had a brick and mortar business.

A WordPress site can be used as a blogging platform as well as an eCommerce storefront. There are several ways this can happen. If you want to use WordPress as an e-commerce store for drop shipping, then I strongly encourage you to visit Alidropship.  One of the very best and top-rated platforms for dropshipping.  Also known as Alliexpress, they have one the largest lists of certified suppliers you can trust.  And you need these trusted suppliers to run your business.

WordPress’s favorite eCommerce platform – WooCommerce. WooCommerce is another WordPress plugin which will convert a WordPress site into an online storefront using WooCommerce. With thousands of themes just waiting for you, the fun is just beginning.

My Conclusion

Ultimately, it’s all about understanding what your audience really wants and what kind of advice or information you can give them. The one thing I have always liked about Amazon is the reviews that are available. Don’t you find this helps in your decisions as to purchase or not to purchase?

Bottom line……..that is what affiliate marketing is all about. You helping your potential customer find what is best suited to their needs.  Reviews and research that they may never find the time to do themselves.  

you are here to help and show those top rated affiliate programs

Affiliate Marketing is more than just selling ‘stuff’ to people. It really comes down to you caring about your visitors and the products you recommend. Just another reason that it is suggested you should have a passion for your products or at least love using them yourself.

My eyes have been opened again and again.  The thing is, when you do any business online using the massive internet highway, it is constantly changing and at high rates of speed.  What I see as the biggest catastrophe on the Internet is the lies so many have been told and if not outright lies, some pretty darn good innuendos indicating things that just do not happen that way.

When you think about a home business you might consider asking yourself what is the perfect job for me.   Here is a recent post that addresses this   You might find yourself relating.

Time to hand over the keyboard so your fingers can do the talking.  Would really love to hear your thoughts on this or your journey so far in affiliate marketing, questions is you have any or perhaps something we missed entirely. Or you can be a one-click wonder and share some love via our social sites.  The comment box is just below.
