The Best Affiliate Marketing Programs are Not Always on Amazon

Best Affiliate Marketing Programs Today

stop listeneing to the wrong people in affiliate marketing programs

Knowledge is power and without it, success will not be on the horizon anytime soon.   Yes, many of those guru guys with the fancy sites ( called capture pages) will tell you how easy it is, but they are just looking for your money.  They are not helping you find the best affiliate marketing programs or how to go about learning how or where.  How long have you been trying to do an online business?  How’s that going for you?

Let me ask you this, If you had a place to learn everything you needed about marketing online businesses would you still be where you are today?  Do you know where the best affiliate marketing programs can be found?  I didn’t but now I do.

As more and more Big Box stores enter the online marketing trend they offer some of the best programs to people like you and me.  And I am not talking just Amazon anymore.  What do you think is going to happen as this trend continues?  I see a couple of things taking place and some have already made the front page!

Three categories  I have noticed more of or perhaps I should say stood out more than the rest are ‘Online Gaming Anything’ ‘Fashion & Jewelry’ ‘Health & Anti-Aging’.   And digital is also HUGE!

What Is a Niche in Affiliate Marketing Programs?

Those trends above, are called a Niche market.   A niche is a target audience looking for a particular product or service.  An example would be one of the above.  Say, Anti-aging products.  That would be a pretty broad market but you could break it down.   OR you could leave it broad and target more types of products for different needs.  Your niche should also be something you love to share or chat about with others or is just a passion you have and are somewhat knowledgeable in. If not, no fear here as you can do some research and share different products within that Niche Target.   It is a process that can be learned easily with the right guidance.

It is really simple and the best explanation I have ever heard was from Kyle at Wealthy Affiliate.  ” A niche is simply a group of people looking for what you have to offer”  Not nearly as difficult as some would have you think.


What is seriously epic and missing in Affiliate Marketing is learning how to do it properly and for the best value, you can get.  I have tried several marketing programs thinking it was what I needed but I was wrong………that is, until I came across one that is seriously solid.

That shout out goes to Wealthy Affiliate!   The costs are 0 to under $50.00 and you can remain Free as long as you need too.  You will still learn all the basics and can have, not just one, but two websites.   Yup, Wealthy Affiliate is by far the best online program with everything you need to learn for less than anything I have seen yet.

Not only does the Wealthy Affiliate University teach you everything in a step by step easy to follow training program but they offer you an opportunity to earn some money as an affiliate of their program.  It actually pays one of the higher commissions online.  PLUS an added benefit is, they have two other resources you can be earning from as well.


Where Are the best affiliate marketing programs?

Most people who come online in search of a home business are not familiar with smaller company’s they become associated with and earn decent commissions.  Most think Amazon.  Nothing wrong with that thinking!  Amazon is well known and you can easily get a link to share products.

If there is a downside to Amazon or any other large company, Wayfair is a good example.  You need a lot of traffic for those like Wayfair and even Amazon.  If you have no sales in 90-180 days you will lose your affiliation.  I see this happening a lot more than you would think and that is because you are encouraged to use Amazon over smaller companies.  Makes sense to me…all the advertising is done for you…

I strongly encourage you to do a bit of your own research once you have a product or products you want to market.    See if you can find companies you can become directly affiliated with.   Trust your own instinct and do your own homework rather than just listening to what others tell you to do.

Questions you might be asking are is it a load of Dung, or can I really make the extra money I am looking for?  And if it is the truth ( it is  ) I don’t know how or where to do this, can I make it work?

The other thing I see all over the internet and social media sites are those headlines telling you that you can make 10’s of thousands of dollars in affiliate marketing!   You actually can, just not Every Day of Every Week without knowing anything!

I know, everyone claims they are the best thing since sliced bread, they will do it all for you, ……and that you will be making a boatload of cash from your computer in just days.  Not gonna happen!   That is more than a slight over exaggeration!!   Would you believe that I live in an igloo and I have WiFi and T.V.?  Then don’t believe everything you see on the Internet.  Well, with one exception…ME!  You knew that was coming, didn’t you?  I am telling it as it is and even after being informed that I should not tell the truth.  You want to hear that it is easy and you can do this in your sleep.

If you still want to believe them, I have a freezer to sell you for your igloo with WiFi!phone talking to guy
You can make a decent living in affiliate marketing but you are not going to be earning $10,000.00 in a week.  It does not happen that way.  You are not going to be that little unknown person writing blogs who becomes an overnight sensation!   It takes time, learning, and dedication.  Then and only then it can work!  If it was as easy as they tell you it is and you can do this in your sleep don’t you think everyone would be successful?

You could eventually make $10,000 a month. That is reasonable.  It will take focus, patience and a little help from your friends.




The Big Fairytale

The TREND part here is telling the fairy tale! Big Shot Marketers from Prior Big Shot Company’s teaching you to do the same Big Shot kind of Stuff.  Affiliate Marketing is becoming VERY well known, and yes it really works but be very cautious of these bad boy types as they try and jump on the gravy train.   Caution is Advised!

Affiliate Marketing is one of the most real and down to earth ways to make a living online.  Today, more so than ever before we are seeing people who are retiring soon, are retired, or due to health issues cannot work outside of their homes looking for ways to earn some extra money.   I didn’t like being led down the garden path that led to nothing but empty pockets and I sure don’t want that to happen to you or anyone you know!

It is hard enough to come to terms with the fact that there is not enough money in the living longer part due to circumstances or poor planning without having more added on.  You may have had your career snapped out from under you due to unforeseen health issues.  There are a number of circumstances that could be why you are searching for a way to make that money.

I have had a desire to help change that for as many people as possible.  To guide you away from those people that I swear would throw their grandmother under a bus if it meant another dollar in their pocket.

If I sound mad or angry or frustrated it is because I am.  The good news is more of you are seeing the truth and actually making a real living now.  No more chasing dreams.  It is a reality.  Your reality.

I want to say thanks for stopping by today and if you are in a sharing kind of mood I  would love to hear from you.  So how about you make my day better than it already is with a share or a comment.  I can turn the keyboard over to you if you would do that.  I check often and I promise I will get back to you.  Heck, you can even put in your comment you would like to touch base via email with questions if you like.  The comments box is just below and my social icons are somewhere about on my site.  They are usually found off playing somewhere.  Behavior issues you know. 


Have an Awesomely awesome kind of day!
