Welcome to the Extra Money Answer – a resource to help you learn how to make money online by starting up a blog and becoming an affiliate marketer to earn money from the blog.
I was originally going to write a book with a big publisher on this topic, but I decided to share my affiliate marketing experience here instead (you can also buy a Kindle version of this information for just $1.99).
Why? Many reasons. I detail them on my blog in a post, “Does the World Need Another Affiliate Marketing Book?“.
Three reasons why you should take my advice…
First, you’re probably wondering who I am and why you should bother listening to me. Well, my name is Shawn Collins, and I’ve been an affiliate since 1997. I also managed affiliate programs for ten years, and co-founded the Affiliate Summit conference in 2003.
Second, you’ve probably seen books, ebooks, courses, etc. that claim they can teach you how to get rich quick. I’m not going to do that. You won’t get rich quick as an affiliate. You probably won’t get rich slow, either. But it’s a great way to earn an extra $50, $100, or more a month.
Third, when I mention a product or service here, I am using it myself and I like it enough to endorse it to you. These mentions will often be accompanied by affiliate links. If you click through these links and make a purchase, I will earn commissions. My examples are based on what I use, so if you use different vendors and tools, your experience will be a little different.
Let’s get started.
