      Great Ron, I must have achieved what I set out to do. An easily read and fun article, hopefully enough, starting at first principles for how to do Affiliate Marketing. So many write good articles but forget the beginning points.

      For those just wanting to start online, one can never assume they know whats happening as first steps are often left out.

      I think I will jump over and have a read of your site.

    I agree that choosing a niche you love is the first major step any potential affiliate marketer should take. It makes writing the content feel natural and it’s something we all look forward to each day.

    I like your science fiction niche as I’m thinking of starting my third niche site in a department that has to do with books, but mine would just be in the fantasy genre as I can’t get enough in my life and I’ve actually written in the urban fantasy genre, so it’s something I have a name in as well.

      Todd, it really is a must to have a comfortable fit with a niche. It makes writing so much easier.

      I must admit I tend to fantasy these days too. I love science fiction but the great writers now seem to be in the minority for this genre.

      I would love to look at your writings in Urban Fantasy. Have you ever come across Charles de Lint. I love his writings. He has various approaches but his urban crossed with myth is terrific.

      Thanks for your comment.

    Hi, Helen,

    I couldn’t have explained it better. Many of us are tired of working low-paying or non-fulfilling jobs that restrict our time and make us unhappy. I can vouch for that.
    In our quest for other sources of income, some of us have fallen in scams like MLMs or other scams. There are people out there who don’t have any scruples and will lure you into their trap. They take advantage of you because you’re desperate to switch directions.
    I ran into affiliate marketing a few months ago. I was hesitant at first, like many people are and for good reason. But I did some research and decided it was worth to give it a try. I found out it was legit, but it’s not a get-rich-quick scheme. It takes hard work and time. It’s not an automatic process.
    I have learned a lot and I hope to make this my next career. I love blogging and if I can combine it with my passion which is travel, that would be a win-win.
    By the way, you explained affiliate marketing wonderfully. I think even a kid could understand how it works.
    Thanks for writing this up. Keep up the good work.

      Enrique, lovely and appreciated comment so Thanks.

      I am pretty easy going but can be a real cynic at times. If someone pesters me about doing something I often think about or do the opposite. So I am careful in what I do end up doing. As a result I have never been comprehensively scammed. I did start out looking at another educator but set myself a really low scam limit. Then I found Wealthy Affiliate.

      Now I have traveled a lot and done all sorts of jobs. And no matter what, my attitude towards work and my fellow workers has meant I have had a great time. My final two careers, civil engineer and Commercial Building Project Manager were very interesting and absorbing. So I have never felt unfulfilled. And I both times I worked in male dominated areas. But I was never treated differently.

      I looked at Affiliate Marketing when I retired. Yes the retirement pension is not really sufficient but I also hate not learning and getting bored. Now I am having a great time and making some money too.

      I have never regretted starting this and hope your journey is as rewarding.

      Ciao
