You’re where I was several years ago when I first started looking for affiliate marketing jobs at home. In this article, I’ll tell you how I landed the perfect affiliate marketing job, and where I got my (free!) training.
Way back in 2004, I started searching online for ways I could work from home. At that time, I didn’t know I could be looking for affiliate marketing jobs at home – I didn’t know about affiliate marketing at all yet. I ended up settling on Ebay, and had a fairly successful Ebay business for several years. Then, right around 2013, I got tired of doing Ebay. Although I was thrilled my business was doing well, the huge amount of shipping I had to do six days a week (seven during the holidays) was killing me! I never got a day off, had to work every weekend, and during the holidays it was nonstop. Again, I was grateful for the success, but when I set out to work at home online, working like a dog just wasn’t what I had in mind.
Tired of slaving on Ebay, I started searching online again for ways I could work at home. This was when I discovered affiliate marketing. I found an affiliate marketing course, paid money for it, and completed the training. I created a website, became an affiliate for Amazon, and I was thrilled! I thought I had found the perfect job.
But what I didn’t know was that the training I received was far from sufficient. I now know that the affiliate marketing course I paid for was pitiful, actually, and didn’t even begin to cover everything I needed to know to be successful at affiliate marketing. They taught me how to become an affiliate for Amazon, and taught me how to create a website. That’s it. I had no idea that a whole lot more was needed for anyone to even see my website, let alone getting enough visitors to actually make money.
So I failed.
I tried to make it work for several months, but finally got discouraged and gave up. It wasn’t until 2015 that I really (really really really) got tired of Ebay and decided to try affiliate marketing again.
So I searched again for another, hopefully a better affiliate marketing course online. I was very fortunate this time to come across someone promoting a company called Wealthy Affiliate. They have a free affiliate marketing course for beginners. I signed up in August, 2015, and completed the free starter program. By the end of those classes, I had a new website and way more knowledge about how to actually be successful. And I loved it. I knew I had found one of the best affiliate marketing jobs online! So that November I upgraded to their Premium Membership, and continued on with the training.
Today I’m a full time affiliate marketer!

If You Want an Affiliate Marketing Job
I personally love doing affiliate marketing as my full time job. I have two large websites I work on every week – you’re on one right now. I have two YouTube channels, and hundreds of email subscribers and social media followers. This website helps people make money online, and the other website helps animals. Seriously, I couldn’t be happier.
You can have your own business, work from home, set your own hours, be your own boss…that really is what an affiliate marketing job provides for you. I’m glad you found me, and I’m glad you now know about Wealthy Affiliate. You don’t have to be scammed – Wealthy Affiliate is the real deal. It’s REAL training.
