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!

Those are wonderful goals Mike and I can tell you firsthand that these are more than achievable. When I started out I had very similar goals and with some hard work and dedication, I exceeded any goals that I could have ever initially set.

You will get there if you invest some hard work and dedication to this, I don't have any doubt. :)

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, sorta. I am just going to have do it step by step til the light bulb over my head turns on. :-)

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.

Roy

Thanks for your kind words, Roy! It has been an absolutely incredible journey, that's for darn sure. Not a moment taken for granted and I just want others to be able to experience the same freedom.

Congratulations on your self-employment success as well! Being self-employed for 35 years is no small feat!

Just followed ya. Keep in touch! :)

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
