What is an Affiliate Marketing Blogger?

Last Update: January 23, 2016

If you are new to Wealthy Affiliate, you may be new to the whole idea of affiliate marketing. There are lots of different types of affiliate marketing, but the most common is the affiliate marketing blogger.

So... what is an affiliate marketing blogger?

An affiliate marketing blogger is someone who blogs and mentions products on their blog for which they get a cut every time someone purchases.

It really is as simple as that.

Simple... but not easy.

Affiliate marketing takes a lot of hard work. Everyday.

So... what is a good affiliate marketing blogger?

A good affiliate marketing blogger is someone who is willing to work hard on their website everyday.

In other words, it is not someone who expects to build a quick website and "get rich quick".

It doesn't work that way.

For people to buy from your blog, there are a few things that need to happen first:

1) First, you need to have quality content that targets the right keywords to bring people to your site.

2) Second, the quality needs to be quality enough to give the prospective buyer a reason to stay on the page long enough to read it.

3) Third, the material needs to give enough quality information that the buyer is ready to click through and purchase by the time you provide them a link.

Otherwise, they will need to continue their research and they will either click a link from another affiliate marketing blogger's site, end up directly at a provider's site, or perhaps forget the whole thing and never buy.

So, how do you make sure your blog covers all of these things?

Like I said, it is simple, but not easy.

Wealthy Affiliate makes it simple. All you have to do is follow the lessons here (under "Get Started Here" to the left) step-by-step. Keep following them until you are successful, without giving up.

Have you made it all the way through the lessons? Start from the beginning and go through them again. Not only will you find that you learn something new every time, you will also be building your site with more quality content as you step through the lessons again.

If you have not yet tried any of the lessons here at Wealthy Affiliate, it's free to try the first ten lessons. Simply click "Create a Free Account" at the top of this page to give it a go.

If you work hard every day and keep learning every day, you will be successful. But don't just sit back and wait for it to happen. Take action every day.

I agree with this definitely but I think that not any kind of action get's results but inspired action is the productive one.
