1. The Truth about Affiliate Marketing
Affiliate marketing is a process in which you sell someone else’s product for a certain amount of commission, this commission varies from one vendor to another, that’s why I highly recommend that you be very selective when you start promoting.
Some of the very popular companies who have an affiliate program are
- Linkshare – You’ll find many affiliate programs here
- Commission Junction – another affiliate program promoter/organizer
- Best Buy
- And countless others
You may log in to any company site and check if they have an affiliate program by scrolling down all the way to the bottom of their homepage.

Affiliate marketing proved to be one of the best choices when thinking of making money off the internet for a few simple reasons.
- No inventory to worry about

- I could list a ton of other benefits but you I’m sure you got the clear picture
While the above benefits of online Affiliate marketing are all true and almost every one’s wish & dream, the bitter truth is that this is not as easy as many make it sound like.
It takes real hard work, commitment and unshakable determination to pull it off. Many are the times when I laughed really hard as I ran into countless articles, guides and tips that are titled like this…. my 5 easy tips to online success, my 7 easy tips to your financial freedom, my 10 simple advices to do this and that, and it goes on and on. I’m sure you’ve noticed the same. They make everything about this sound easy and simple.
Even funnier, are those who are trying to conduct product reviews, 99% of them are immature newbies who joined some kind of a program out there, and were taught to demonize every other opportunity out there to make the program they joined stand out, for a little commission reward they may earn, in many cases they never even recieved that commission.
I’m almost sure that at one point or another you got so confused to a point where you decided not to join anyone, and if you did, most likely you joined a scam, it happened to me, quite few times.
These are probably consciousless affiliate marketers leading you to the scammiest sites out there regardless to the fact, because all they see is the dollar sign. They usually don’t last for too long themselves.
In order for you to be successful in an online business, it takes a lot more than just reading tips and guides.
Now I’m going to layout every single element you need to build a long solid long term online business from scratch, from knowing nothing to running a successful website.
So, hang on, this is going to be a little longer than the norm, but it should be more than worth it, Hey, may be for the first time you are listening to someone telling you the truth about this whole process, and more than willing to truly help you through your journey of building a sustainable online business.
2. You must start with a positive readiness
This part is the most important of all, always make sure that you psychologically ready for anything you want to do in your life no matter what that can be. Don’t fool yourself and spend money on something you may not follow through with. Always make sure you are 100% ready especially when taking challenging and life changing decisions.
If you are not psychologically ready and well prepared you will fail, and failing is the last thing you want, it always left a devastating negative impacts, you fail one more time and you’ll never believe in yourself or anything else anymore, you’ll get the feel that you’re good for nothing … Let’s avoid that.
3. The Foundation – A Website

You cannot spam the heck out of your social media accounts and expect results, you absolutely need that website. (The base) Your (Physical store online) .
Don’t build anything that is shorthanded (low quality or without a foundation) because it can easily and will collapse. You want to build a solid foundation and this requires a website…and this will allow you to build those virtual dreams.

This Content is going to be bone of your traffic (through SEO), your ability to build relationships with your visitors (which leads to revenue), and the creation of your brand (which will lead to a long term business.
5. Getting traffic to your site

- and you’ll discover many other ways as you pop along
