Success! Proof That Affiliate Marketing Works!

Last Update: December 04, 2017

I checked my Amazon account this morning, and found that I had earned a commission fee on the 4th of July, 3 days ago!

The commission fee was $0.50. Low yes, but proof that affiliate marketing works.

I'm really excited about this because:

  1. I wanted proof that affiliate marketing works for me.
  2. I started out on WA with zero knowledge nearly 2 months ago (54 days to be exact), and have already seen my first success!
  3. I was considering abandoning my affiliate marketing ventures altogether, because I was seeing absolutely no results and the $47/month for Premium is taking its toll. I know if I can make 50 cents today, the possibilities are endless for the future.

I must thank everyone who has helped me here - without all your help, this would have, of course, been impossible. Thank you!

Wishing you success!

Ian

Don't ever quit, Ian. I love your website. I predict that you will go on to grow and develop income with that and other niches. Keep at it. I would have loved to start affiliate marketing at your age. Don't worry, you'll get older..lol. ~Jude

Okk , Unlike you though I haven't been able to upgrade to the Premium and $50 is a bit much so do you have a FB? Just in case I can't get premium in time

I have an FB account, but I don't use it lol. Really the best place to get in touch with me is here on Wealthy Affiliate....

You know Premium costs $19 for the first month, then $47 afterwards. Hopefully you'll be able to upgrade in time. :)

Hmm.. Difficult situation, sounds A LOT like me a couple months ago.

By the way, the 59% discount lasts a month, not a week. I know this because it was around 10 days before I became a Premium member, and I still had the discount available for 20 more days or so. :)
What you DO lose after 7 days is the access to communicate on WA....

I was able to scrounge up $19, I hope you can as well! :)

Good luck!
