About AffTraining
Joined June 2016
Back in 2009 I was a long-haul truck driver with nearly $50,000 in debt and $200 in my bank account. For this, and other reasons, I was near rock bottom in life. That's when I discovered affiliate marketing and my life was changed forever. By 2011, I quit my job and was working on my business, Rogers Concepts. I have been earning a solid 6 figure income online since 2011 through a diverse portfolio of web properties. You can check out all of the web properties I currently own here: http://www.rogersconcepts.com.

If you only check out one of my sites, I strongly urge you to check out this one: http://www.affiliatemarketertraining.com. As a "super affiliate" I love teaching others about affiliate marketing as well as giving REALISTIC expectations. I'm a firm believer that affiliate marketing is a business just like any other. Due to the flood of get-rich-quick schemes involved with affiliate marketing, I decided to create a "no B.S." site for newcomers in the affiliate marketing industry. Thus, AffiliateMarketerTraining.com was born.

I absolutely love life and live a very minimalist lifestyle with my dog as we travel across the United States in my 31ft travel trailer. I'm always looking to connect with people so feel free to shoot me a message anytime!

Hello AffTraining! I want you to know that yesterday I came across your website while looking for something else, read your post and signed up on the spot! I'm now a Premium member because of you and I'm looking forward to this new adventure. Thanks for the "no BS site.

Hi!

I'm very happy to be there and to work hard to take charge of my life and freedom.

I was just wondering about one thing, can I be able to go through all this formation and begin to earn without being a premium member? I ask that because i can't aford it right now, that is axectly why I'm working hard.

I really want to upgrade to a premium account once I can aford it.

My regards!

Thanks for the support. I have a question. Recently I purchased a .com for my 1st site but now when I try to log into the back office on either site I get an error message and a message that it is unsafe all in red. How do I get access to update my site?

Hi ... I don't know if I'm doing this the right way but having trouble 'nailing' the Niche. My idea was to have an Online Business Opportunity Agency which would present and offer support for many Affiliates to show people ways to make money, not just one - AW as you are proposing. But maybe that is the logical way to start - with one. What are your thoughts??

Hello Mike,
Glad to know you from you AffiliateMarketerTraining.com search in google, before writing any review of WA after joining since 2017, I try to get other WA review for referance, because I also get some negative feedback from others about WA, and some time I still doubt about if it is worth to contribute more time on my blog and learn more from WA, until I see you experience from you blog, I get more confidence to win in success, I must try more effort to write my blog, because I am not english national speaker, so I am not sure if I can write good english blog with my writing. you gave me more confidence and full of expectation, thank you for your blog

Hi Mike! Since my niche is mostly products (toys) I was wondering if I should make it an e commerce focused website instead of a blogging centered site. I'd like to find the main differences between the two types of sites before I start creating all my content. Thanks!

Hi
Could really do with your help.
My idea was to create a site offering football shirt affiliate links but I am questioning why a customer who is looking to buy a soccer shirt would even click on my site if its just a blogging site with links? Surely they would just go to an online shop?. So Ive hit a wall now and could really do with some guidance. Really enjoy writing blogs but should i stay clear of the football shirt idea? Would rather change direction now after only 2 months than further down the road
Can you offer any suggestions as im really confused.
Thanks

Mike,

Thank you for your story. I have been at it very part time just over a year now. I know it takes time and work and it will happen. You have given me new inspiration to not give up or give in.
Ethics are important to me as well, I have always believed in making an honest living and doing my best to help others, which I can do both here at WA.
I hope your travels are going well, that would be a good “niche”, best places to RV in the USA.😎
If you ever make it to San Antonio would love to meet, dinner my treat.
Give your dog a hug from me and thanks for your inspiration and know you are changing lives for the better. A lot of people are not as blessed as we are here in the states.

I created a blog post with a question about Wordpress. I'm new to this, so I didn't know how to tag you in it.

I'm not a premium member yet, so it won't let me post the direct link to my question, but this is what I asked:

I'm trying to build out a sort of nested structure to my website and I'm a little confused.

So, I have my main page, and new posts appear there - that makes sense to me.

But what I want them to do is also have them appear on pages that represent subcategories. For instance, let's say I have a page called "Gear Reviews" in addition to the main page. When I post a gear review, I'm fine with it appearing on the main page, but I'd also like it to appear on the gear review page.

Same goes for items in a "Gear Comparisons" page, a "Gear Tutorials" page, etc.

I know they can be put into Categories, but that's not exactly with I'm trying to accomplish (unless there's a way to use specific Categories tags to auto populate the posts in the sub pages as well as the Home page).

Any thoughts, folks?

Thanks!

Your blog page is a good example of what I'm trying to do here. Any suggestions?

Mr.Rogers,before i begin training is it possible for someone else to pay for my training here?i do not own a visa card .My daughter would like to do this for me.Or would it be better if she took the training instead of me?it took many months to save just enough to allow her to get a visa card so we can try and earn money online for our main goal - to go home .

Hey I'm stuck on part of the training and wondering if you have time to help. I'm just on Lvl 2 - Creating Keyword-rich Content and I have to make a keyword-rich post. My vision for my website is to sell snowboards and all the equipment/accessories that go with the sport. I don't understand how I'm supposed to write 1000 words on "mens snowboard bindings" for example. I understand that I need content to get ranked and do well, but what content should I be writing if all I want my website to be is pictures/descriptions/reviews and links to the products I'm selling?

Any help would be appreciated, thanks

First, I want to THANK YOU for leading me here from your website :) It's you and your content, that is so good and convincing! I stepped in here and couldn't leave (trapped :).
During this whole week as a Starter member I was trying to take as much as I could with time being limited, but have no other choice as to become Premium :)
Second, seems like this was explained in Bootcamp lessons, but I want to be sure: will I become your referral if I go Premium now?
O do I need to follow some link of yours?

Hi, Mike,

Nice to meeting you here. I have read 60% of your website information. I wrote a lot to you but disappear due to unfamiliar to this website. its too much information for me. My language is Chinese and I am in Taipei, Taiwan.

I planned to start a new website yesterday, but my intuition told me I can stared by joining here, but I know its only 7 days to consider about to be advanced membership or not. I have studied in past 2-3 weeks, understand how to do that, and which platform and whom I could learn things from.

My background is information management and technology management MBA, I also worked in a Chinese searching engine company, my work experience is about sales and marketing, education planning and etc.

I wanna free style life as yours, I am starting to think about my target and niche market.

I studied until this morning and then go to bed, I think too much information here, I need some time to be used to it, and the user interface is very... dazzling (?).

I have two questions. 1. How could I start from here? the 2 free websites are with domain name? or I should register blue host? 2.I am easy to over-studied, I wanna try leaning in doing.

Thank you, I know you have many people to take care, maybe later I can study from step by step in the course. But I would like trying to ask you.

Have a nice day!

Hi, I have a tech support question on the link referrals in Your WA Referral menu. The link:" Create Account' links the user directly back to my account instead the WA website creation page? Who does this info need to be directed to get the link fixed?
The other links seem to direct the reader to a creation page, just not that one. Also the all those links appear as text http including banners, so if I attach a banner to my website, the http address instead of pictures shows on my page.. Is this because I have starter account?

It is a privilege to get to know successful people who know what they want in life and are ready to fight for it. From truck driving to a successful 6 figure earner is quite a journey. I can only imagine what it took you to get to where you are now. It is amazing how WA can make our minds strong and determined.
I have been here on and off since 2006, when the platform was just a BABY. Man o man. Should I have stayed here and done what I was supposed to be doing, I would have been on a whole different boat by now.
But as they say, everything has its time. And it is very inspiring to meet people like yourself who can teach the rest of us a very important lesson, and that is...Fight for what you want and you will get it.

Hi Mike,

I'm picking my niche right now in the training, and I wanted to run an idea by you.

How does "home gym" sound for a niche? I am passionate about exercise and fitness and I was subscribed to a gym most of my life. Recently however I found that working out at home saves me some money, and gives me the privacy to workout the way I please.

What do you think?

Hello Mike,

So I followed another member who invited me to click on his follow me link to webtalk.
I did that and then I added it to my follow me.
I wanted to add another link promoting my wife's success with an all natural weight loss that has been very successful for her.
I was just told that could get me banned, that it is considered spam...not truly knowing the meaning of spam...do I need to immediately remove the webtalk link and not post the link for the weight loss.

Thanks,

It was your article An Honest Wealthy Affiliate Review, that made me sign up. I have tried other on line businesses, one I lost a lot of money, the other never went anywhere. One big question I have, not going through all of the training yet. It seems like there is a lot of article writing. For example on the Dog Food Insider, did you have to write all of that ad copy? Do you have to do the research?
The one business that I lost that money in, I was having to write ezine articles that all had to be original. I found that very difficult, especially because it was not about a topic that I cared about. I was selling fishing rods on line, with a drop ship company. I still own the domain.

AffTraining Premium
Well, this might not be the answer you want to hear, but yes, this is very content heavy. It doesn't necessarily need to be. For example, you can write a 10 page site and just drive traffic through paid advertising. My own business, though, focuses almost exclusively on written content and traffic from search engines.

WIth that said, I haven't written all of the content myself. In fact, the vast majority of DogFoodInsider.com was not written by me, but that site earns me thousands every month. Once my first site started making money, I hired a freelance writer to write content for a second site, then a third, and so on. It has taken many years to get to this point. I still do a ton of writing and editing myself as well.

So the short answer is, as far as my business is concerned, yes it is very heavy on content marketing.

Hi I wanted to know if you guys offer training on using google adsense as well I signed up for it but dont Have a website yet and is it wise for me to do both on one website or should I do a whole separate website and any ideas on how to come up with a website just for adsense or put them on the same website with my affiliate website I hope I explained that right lol

WA is mostly focused on obtaining free traffic through organic search engine results. There is some training on Adsense in the affiliate bootcamp, but it doesn't get too detailed. I've never found Adsense to be profitable so unfortunately I can't offer too many tips as I haven't succeeded with it myself yet.

Hey, sorry for the slow response here. Yes, you should have several links available to you. If you click on the $ icon on the upper right menu, click on Program Details. You'll see your main link at the top, but you can also click on Links & Tracking on the top menu to get access to more links. I think what you're looking for is the blue Create Custom Link button where you can set up a custom landing page here at WA.

Is that what you were searching for?

Hey Mike,

no problem sir, no doubt you are inundated with many ?'s.

I believe this is what I am asking. Just want to be sure that as I am building my site and adding WA links it is getting directed to me of course. I now have two sites indexed, must be doing ok, as it appears that being indexed is a big deal, still learning all these terms, although not quite sure what index means, but am liking getting good news from Google!

Thx Pard,

Jim
Reply
AffTraining Premium
Yap, getting indexed is one of the first steps. Basically, Google now knows you exist and will keep coming back to your site automatically to see if you've added new content. It still takes a while to rank highly, but you're on the right track! :)

Hi Mike,
Q1 - My website and contents are about Microblading eyebrows. If I want to also do affiliate marketing with amazon, can I use the same website to market their products or Do I need to start another website like jewls product review etc.?
Q2 - I redirect my jewlsbeauty.com to jewlsmicroblading.com as you recommended, but after 30 days, can I stop the redirect and utilize the website again?
Q3 - The hard work that we need to put in that everyone is talking about, is everyone referring to writing the contents? Cause I think that is the hardest :( Thanks
Reply
AffTraining Premium
Hey there!

Q1 - Setting up a second site is really a matter of personal choice. About 10 years ago, I always recommended creating several smaller websites, but these days I mostly recommend growing larger and more authoritative sites. There is no right or wrong answer here as either option is totally valid.

Q2 - I think that would be fine. Chances are, you're not getting much if any traffic on that first site, so you can stop redirecting it and just create a new site if you'd like. I don't think this would cause you any problems.

Q3 - Well, yes, that's absolutely true. For the most part, once your website is set up, your main job will be producing as much keyword focused content as you possibly can. All of my websites have hundreds of pages of content. You're right, this is the hardest part, especially doing this for month or even years before it all really pays off. It's the biggest barrier to making money with affiliate marketing, the majority of people just don't have the patience or desire to write that much content over such a long period of time. I know this probably isn't what you want to hear, but I'm a "no B.S." kinda guy and just tell the truth. In this business, content is King.
Reply
Jekim Premium
I just didn't know what they meant when they said you need to do some hard work. Now that I know I better get cranking on those contents...lol I'm getting a little better anyway. The hardest part was the first one, but now I have some ideas how all this work, I think I can do this.

I have hard time getting free images for my website, do most people purchase their images that they put on their website?

You know, email marketing is touted as one of the best marketing methods and I'm sure I'm losing out on money by not creating email lists. I just personally really hate spam and getting emails from people who just want to sell me stuff. I also just want to get straight to the point. Instead of giving a huge sales pitch, capturing emails, retargeting, etc... I just get people to click on my affiliate link and over to WA where WA can close the deal. The least number of steps or clicks to get over to WA the better.

This is just me. I'm not saying this is the best method to go with, but it's how I've traditionally do things as I just don't enjoy email marketing.
Reply
Glen B Premium
Hi Mike,

I hate email marketing as well. So I've taken a different approach.

But first you know you stand to double or triple your signups using email. Here is the reason why and I will tell you my methods because I think you will do much better.

The reason why is we get busy and we jump from one thing to the next. When someone comes to your affiliate page and they just don't have time at that moment you pretty much lose them. This is a proven fact. I've tested it for years.

But first how I came up with this method is I disect many of the other people's pages from the most successful affiliates here on WA. I do this because I want to know what makes them successful. I've done that with your page. And even though I'm not a big earner here yet. I have made as much as 100,000.00 in 7 days in my other marketing ventures and I will do well here as well. But to get to the point all the successful WA Affiliates use email marketing. And I have modeled the ones that I feel comfortable using.

First I don't spam my list. I only send them a series of training that leads them right back to WA. That's it nothing else. I don't send other offers, nothing. I don't because I hate when others do it to me and I will unsubscribe in a heartbeat.

So I offer a training. It's a 10 day series of emails that I send that teaches using WA posts and pages so everything leads right back to WA. Not the sales page but different pages within WA written by others. All with my affiliate link. Eventually I will write posts of my own and send them to those.

I'm happy to share my email series with you if it's something you would like to test.

My opin takes them directly to a custom WA sales page with a video. That personal touch could increase your sign ups alone.

Granted I'm still building my sites here at WA but I've been an internet marketer since 1999. I decided this year to make WA my final resting place and build it out as my retirement plan. I'm not a youngster anymore.. lol

So if you would like me to share this with you so you can do a bit of testing and see if it increases your sales. I'm happy to share it with you.

Just remember it takes 7 exposures to something for most people to take action. So imagine if you you could get just some of those who click away to join.

Let me know,

Thanks so much Glen, it sounds like you've got an excellent system in place and really know what you're doing. I'm sure I'll see you in Vegas soon, I'm sure we'll have lots to talk about!

Increasing conversion rates is always a great way to bring revenues up. Many of us get so focused on just bringing in more traffic instead of increasing conversion rates on the traffic we already have. That is all very true.

This is something I'll have to look into a bit more. Thanks for sharing all your tips and advice, really appreciate that!

Hi Mike,
I just purchased another domain because o thought my niche was too broad. Is there a way to transfer my infirmation from the previous domain to a new domain? The previous one is jewlsbeauty.com and the new one is jewlsmicroblading.com. Im hoing to use both domains in the future, but i want to start with the jewlsmicroblading.com first.

Thanks

Hey there Julie,

This isn't a problem. Since you don't have too many pages yet, what I'd do is just re-create the site on the new domain. Then, you can simply redirect your old domain to the new one. So, you'll just go into Websites --> Domains. Then, just click the Settings box next to jewlsbeauty.com and select Redirect. Enter in your new domain and you'll be all set!

Does this help?

My access to live chat is blocked cause I got reported a couple of days back for no reason. It ain't scam or anything like that. I was arguing with one member and all of them joined and 10 members reported me. I'm not able to reply to Kyle's messages. What do I do? My other account's name is AV2001. I'm not able to reply to any messages from that account so I had to make a fake account.

I’m sorry I can’t be more help but this is an issue I haven’t heard before!

I watched one of your videos (not sure which one) but I felt your honestly and your genuineness about you. Then I read your profile that you worked as an OTR driver. I am not a driver but I do work for Swift Transportation and been working as a Driver Manager for the last 6 years now and know of the life style you had and the challenges you were faced with.
I just want to say thanks for leading me to WA and I am looking forward to the journey.
I do have a quick question, I was first looking at AWOL and was absolutely shocked of how much money they are asking for training. Are there other hidden cost within WA after becoming a Premium member?

Hey, I'm so sorry for the slow response! I have an old friend in town and have been neglecting WA. :(

I worked for Prime, Inc., I'm sure you're familiar with them as well. No offense, but man oh man do I NOT miss my driver manager. He had control over every little aspect of my life. If I screwed up one little thing, I'd suddenly find myself stuck in the northeast for a week straight. Ugh. For the most part he was fair, but having one person control so much of your life was not fun. And don't get me wrong, I KNOW your job isn't easy, either!

There are a couple of "hidden" costs with WA, actually. The first is you'll want to purchase your own domain name. You can get started with a free domain name here, but eventually, you will definitely want to set up your own domain name, which you can buy here at WA. I believe it costs $14 but I'm not totally sure on that.

You can also upgrade the Jaxxy keyword tool to a pro version, however, I actually don't recommend doing that. The free version of Jaxxy (included with your WA membership) is enough to get some research started, but from there you can do plenty of additional keyword research for free.

Other than that, pretty much everything you'll need to run your business and all the training is included.

There are a lot of bad DM's out there for sure. I started working for Swift in a dedicated environment and l liked it. I wanted to expand my knowledge of the transportation industry and decided to take on OTR drivers. THAT was a different world. After 8 months of being a DM for OTR I transferred back to the dedicated side of the business. Being a DM inside a terminal is stressful. They have so many quotas and goals to meet each week for each driver that I was responsible for. They keep track of all the calls you get, how long your on the phone, how many calls missed and crap like that. I didn't like being micro managed like that. Dedicated world is SOOOOO much better.
Anywho... I have a coaching call this morning with AWOL which was the first affiliate program I was looking into and I am going to tell him to hit the road unless he can justify why AWOL is so much better that WA. I think AWOL has a good program but I don't feel warm and fuzzy when I watch and hear that dude talk. They want $15,000 up front and that is not something I have right now. I'm will to take a little longer to get to my goal if I can avoid that kind of up front money.
Thanks again for your kind and honest suggestions. I hope you will get the credit when I sign up for Premium.

Dude, $15k is insane! I don't know what you committed to on the phone, but please RUN away from that. It's a scam, I'm telling you. You'll never, ever get $15k worth of value from them and I don't care what they guarantee you. You'll never see that $15k again. They haven't even existed more than about a year. Go back to 2016 and look at what their site looked like: https://web.archive.org/web/*/http://www.awolacademy.com/

Will you learn some valuable stuff going through AWOL? Sure, probably, but $15k is robbery. You obviously have to make your own decision, but I encourage you to listen to your gut. If you're not getting the warm and fuzzies, there's a reason for that.

And hey, I even say the same about WA. Sure, I'd like a commission, but WA is not for everyone, so if you don't get the warm and fuzzies here, that's cool, too. Just don't give anyone $15k, please!!

Just checked out http://www.rogersconcepts.com and I have to say it is impressive. I am doing the same thing with a diversified portfolio. Multiple income streams are the best way to optimize your results. We are going full-time RVing in a few months and this is how we plan to add additional income to our life.

I have created rvsolarupgrades.com to try and focus on RV upgrades. Our YouTube channel is just getting started at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCdKPq8tMF3Q9eFDG_LerbVA and we are including Facebook, Pinterest, and Instagram in our arsenal.

I am also a Roger :-)

That's awesome! Full-time RVing is amazing, you're going to have an absolute blast. Your site looks great and your YouTube channel is phenomenal! I love that you and your wife are doing that together. The more you make those videos, the better you'll get at them. Definitely keep that up! Full-time RVing is an exploding segment right now, and as someone who has met a lot of full-timers, they tend to do it for many years.

I'm not really full-timing at the moment, but I still have my trailer. I want to pull that sucker out into the middle of nowhere and get a 100% off-grid setup going (drill my own well, have solar, etc.).

Best of luck to you as you start this journey. No doubt your website and YouTube videos will help a LOT of people, and this is a very easy segment to grow a passionate group on social media.

Please reach out anytime! :)

Hi. Why is more than one website needed? Also, I was reading on Amazon about their Affiliate program and they said you have to have a web site already up and running and they provide the banners etc so I think I am confused about how all this works. I was thinking it was a website that people don't go to, but the place where I would create adds for different products from different companies that I would post for example on Facebook. I also read about different ways to get paid like for example if someone just clicks on your ad -pay per click I think it was called. Can you please clear up my confusion?
Thank you,
Cathy

Yeah so the Amazon Associates program is mostly for website owners. You could share affiliate links on social media, but the social media companies don't really like it as many people spam using their affiliate links.

PPC is also frowned upon by Amazon and honestly, it would be tough to profit using PPC ads for Amazon products.

The best way to go about this is to create your own website with lots of content that can be picked up by search engines. For example, my site DogFoodInsider.com reviews hundreds of different types of dog food. Within my reviews are affiliate links to Amazon. If someone clicks on my affiliate link, then make a purchase within' 24hrs (no matter what they buy), I get a commission.

What I did was performed "keyword research" (in the training here at WA), wrote a couple hundred articles using those keywords in my articles, in turn, get FREE highly targeted visitors to my website from search engines, and some of them click on my affiliate links then make a purchase. That's how the general flow works.

Does that make sense?

Well, don't get too discouraged because the lightbulb never fully comes on. It's more like a dimmer switch. The bulb gets a little brighter as you learn, but even after doing this for nearly 10 years it still feels like I'm constantly behind and trying to learn what I need. The way you feel is perfectly normal!

Hello Mike, I've just been reading your profile what an absolutely fantastic story, well done to you, you have made it happen!

It sounds like great fun travelling around America with your dog, I'm sure he or she is a great companion! I do not have a dog at the moment but have had the privilege of owning two German shepherds over a period of 25 years, they used to come to work with me, great dogs!

I will check out your websites Mike, it is great that you want to help others. I have been self-employed since 1983 and still have a successful off-line business, but long-term I would like to work online full-time to give me more flexibility, however I do enjoy my off-line business.

Enjoy your weekend.

I made a sale over a week ago and I still have yet to see my commission from it. Ive messaged a bunch of times and you nor carson or training people have yet to respond. I worked my butt off for that commission. I got the 2 credits from the account set up and it shows I made the sale my number to vegas went down but no commission. Is this an issue I need to worry about? Am I going to get the commission? Whats going on and why is no one responding to me? Im honestly concerned wether or not to go any further unless I hear from someone. Please respond

I am having trouble setting up my website. I have it created. I put in my title, but now, I can't add text to the main page., I wanted to put in my logo and I can't seem to figure that out. I'm working today at my job until 5 pm. If you could maybe send me some hints on how to add things. I'm a premium member, so I think I have access to more than what I'm seeing.
Thank you

Hey! Thanks for the follow back! Just read your bio, and was completely interested on what you said. I completely agree with the B.S on how everybody is putting the "Get rich quick" Scheme onto things. It was very hard for me to find an actual site to help me learn the new journey. Most of the sites asked for 900.00 for easy, and quick to learn classes. I'm definitely going to check out your website! Thanks for everything

Hey Roger,

After reading your profile and looking at your picture, it hits me that like week ago I was watching your video at you-tube.

That is the WigWagProductions channel, right ? :)

I really liked that.
My friends and myself were RVing in summer of 2009 around the entire USA (New Jersey - Boston - Chicago - West Coast - San Antonio - Panama City Beach - Daytona Beach - back to NJ).
That was one of the best vacations I have had (so far :) )

All the best man
Mike

@AffTraining, Hey man it's my all pleasure to help you with your living man and no worries at all. I'm also diving into WA Affiliate Program and I'll later expand with other programs but my main target for 2018 is to get at least 300 referrals so that I can make a decent money and avoid my 9-5 job as soon as possible. But I'm asking what will I have to do in order to get to that number in the next few months? How long you took to reach at least 100 referrals and what techniques did work for you? Feel free to share anything and help me reach my goal please, thanks man and all the best, cheers. By the way, I loved reading your story man, you're a real winner, cheers again.
Reply
AffTraining Premium
Hey, thanks for the kind words! I need to be totally honest with you and you might not like this answer. Reaching your goal of 300 referrals in the next few months isn't likely. While it's possible you get super lucky, I tell most people to not even think about making any money for 6 to 12 months.

I know that seems like a really long time, but you do need to get into this with the right expectations. If you work about 10 hours per week for 6 to 12 months, there is a real possibility that you'll start bringing in some income. And once the commissions start coming in, it really snowballs quickly. It took me about a year to earn a decent part-time living, and the year after that it was a solid full-time income.

Even though this might not be exactly what you want to hear, I do hope this information is helpful for you!

That's what I'm looking for bro, reality and honesty. Having you said so, it will make me work harder and smarter in order to achieve a better result in 2018, thanks a lot man. But tell me, what marketing methods and techniques did you use to get as many referrals as possible? Please advice! Cheers!
Reply
AffTraining Premium
Through good ol' fashion hard work and patience. No trickery there. My WA referrals are mostly driven by both YouTube videos as well as my site AffiliateMarketerTraining.com. Most of those are driven through my website which has taken many years to build as I started it in 2014. These referrals haven't come overnight and it has taken hundreds of pages to get to this point. Not all of my pages promote WA, but the site has around 700 articles now, mostly 1,000 to 3,000 words in length.

You must provide real value to others first, then you can start thinking about profits.

If you want to learn more about the "system" I use, you can read this article on my site about following C--> T--> P-->M. It's the backbone of my business: https://www.affiliatemarketertraining.com/ctpm-process-website-owners/

Thanks a lot for sharing, the principle you shared makes full sense and I'll follow that surely. I'll focus on providing real value, benefits and helping others so that profit can come naturally along the way. Thanks again man and please keep sharing your experiences, cheers.

Reply

Hey there, sorry for the late response I somehow missed this! You can definitely migrate the site here to WA, but you can also keep your site right where it is. That's really up to you. Most of the training here is excellent regardless of where your website is hosted. If you are already comfortable with where your site is currently hosted, I wouldn't even worry about moving it.

Hello Mike !
I have cancelled my Premium membership several days before the end of February and I see on my account that the amount of $ 49 has been withdrawn today despite my cancellation. I informed W.A about that issue and the fact that I was in a very bad financial situation these times but I did not get any answer to my message.
I sent a message to W.A telling that I wanted to stay at W.A with a free membership but there is no reaction yet. Considering that nobody is here to help me out with this acute problem, I ask you a direct deposit of $ 49 for this month ( March ) into my account.
I have put my confidence in you. I hope that you will not disappoint me. Thank you in advance for your comprehension.

Yes I joined WA on March 12 and it hasn't been easy but surely a learning experience. This is a completely new kind of work environment and I an getting used to many new things to deal with. I see your expertise is precisely this WA. If there is any light you may shed on me about dealing with website creation it would be nice.
Thank you.
