Affiliate Marketing for Seniors

Many seniors in all parts of the world, but particularly in North America, are facing a retirement without either the capital or income to give them the lifestyle that they imagined for their golden years.

A nice home with the latest appliances, a decent car (maybe it's time to go electric) a comfortable, relaxing cruise and finally travel to all those exotic destinations you've been thinking about.

Not to mention helping children and grandchildren get a foothold in an increasingly expensive world.

You Need a Side Hustle

And not just any side hustle.

One that provides an income that no longer directly depends on the hours you work.

Something that you build once (and sure, you put a big learning curve and effort into that build) but from there on, you can work on the business (not in the business) and the money continues to flow.

Even while you're sleeping!

The Ideal Side Hustle for Seniors

Affiliate Marketing is the ideal side hustle for seniors.

You don't have to stock inventory and you don't sell directly to customers, so there's no customer support or follow-up required.

You decide what your business will be all about (called "selecting your niche"), register your domain name and build your website on that domain.

These are the steps that freak out a lot of seniors.

They think they just don't have the technical knowledge to achieve this.

Now that might have been true once, but no longer.

The One Click Website

Wealthy Affiliate makes these steps easy, to the extent that you can build your initial web site with a single click. Literally!

Of course, that won't be a money-making website.

Not yet!

That comes with building niche-related content and getting on board with vendors who will pay you an affiliate commission for promoting their products and selling them to your website's visitors.

This is a step-by-step process that can be learned and implemented.

Just follow the step-by-step video and text-based training lessons in Wealthy Affiliate.

I'm a senior, and I've done it.

You are a great example for other seniors to follow.

I've taken a slightly different path. Though I started as strictly affiliate marketing, I've added a jewelry boutique to my website where I can sell pieces left over from 50 years of selling jewelry to online customers. It helps a great deal.

That's a great idea. Fran. E-commerce businesses can be very rewarding but harder to get going. That's why I always advise seniors to start with affiliate marketing. I'll spring e-commerce on them further down the track 😁.

Thank You Phil, not only fulfilling but inspirational. This is exactly what I need and makes my experiences come alive to be of help to my own clan. With 30 years as a Life Insurance Agent and experience as a Hospice Chaplain I can get bact to helping a lot of people once again. The time is right!

Fabulous, Joe. Seniors approaching or in retirement can use all the help they can get. Helping them to master affiliate marketing is a worthwhile goal.

Nice post, Phil. You have taken the ball and run with it (which is good in American football, but not so good in European!). But in this case, you have built your business around your niche and I hope you are able to live the "retired" life that you have dreamed of! I believe in affiliate marketing, too, or I wouldn't be here. Carry on!

Karin :)

Thanks for the comment, Karin, especially the football comparison lol. Yes, as a senior myself, I'm grateful to have learned about affiliate marketing and have a mission to teach others just how easy it is to build a sustainable income. Sure, there are technicalities to be learned, but nothing that the average senior can't comprehend.

Keep on doing what you are doing. There are a lot of seniors in my area that are hurting. They are part of the reason I do this too.

Take care!

Seniors nearing or already in retirement without the financial independence they expected seem to be a large and growing population everywhere, but particularly in the US. I believe that affiliate marketing is an ideal business model for them, and my aim is to show them just how it's done. Thanks for your encouragement.

Great message, as long as they know it takes considerable work and comes at a cost.
But am all with you on this, it is a great way for a replacement to social security income.

I think most seniors no longer have the belief system that anything comes easy. I see my main task here as being to convince them that they have or can acquire the technical skills to build an affiliate marketing business for themselves. I believe that with Wealthy Affiliate's lesson structure, the help of the community here and with me as their sponsor and mentor, it's totally achievable.

They should just add one activity that charges the whole organism. Exercising early and late hours of the day supercharges the whole body and the brain gets enough supply to cope with the mental work.

This will help our seniors feel energetic and work longer on their sites.

Thank you, Phil, for developing this niche. All of are going there!!!
Have a nice day
Joseph

That's great advice, Joseph. I'm a great believer in seniors continuing to exercise. Oxygenating the brain certainly helps with the mental work required to build an affiliate marketing website. Or indeed any online side hustle.
