Brok's Success Story
This affiliate marketing success story is about Brok, who has been a Wealthy Affiliate member since 2013. Brok still works at his website part-time, but recently learned how to to make $10K online. His highest one month total was over $13,500.
Brok promotes many affiliate programs which make up this total:
All of these different affiliate promotions in total add up to a nice chunk of income for one month.
Brok's Consistent Building Approach
Like many other successful affiliate marketers, he frequently gets asked how long it took him to start making money.
Like many others, he responds that the time it takes is different for everyone. For Brok himself, it took three months before he saw his first dollar of online income.
By focusing on this kind of "quick cash" mindset, Brok almost quit affiliate marketing a few different times. He kept thinking that his site would quickly take off, and a large amount of revenue would be the result.
When this magic income never materialized, he decided to change his mindset. Instead, he keeps putting in the work. He continues steady growth each month. Brok knows that within a few years, he will have a valuable asset that will keep generating increasing levels of money.
With affiliate marketing, you can't be discouraged with short-term failures. Instead, focus on the long term, the bigger picture. If you've seen any success at all, then you know it is possible. All you need to do is keep adding great content to your website.
Be Careful With Your Website Stats
One of Brok's earlier posts he already had a valuable tip for new affiliate marketers. The advice is to think of your website as long-term and not a day-to-day business. This advice is something Brok had already learned.
Like many other new online marketers, you tend to check out your website traffic statistics every day. You write a bunch of long articles and feel that finally, the steady stream of visitors will arrive.
Some affiliate marketers refer to this time as the affiliate marketing honeymoon is over. Getting started, you read all of the success stories. You take the training and learn all kinds of new technology and marketing techniques.
Then you start doing the actual work. You write one article after another, hoping to see success.
Brok's advise is to stop looking at the day-to-day traffic statistics. He started seeing traffic increases when viewing from month-to-month instead and finally realized he was making progress.
Brok's #1 Recommendation For Making Money Online
Brok continues to recommend Wealthy Affiliate as his number one learning platform for affiliate marketing. Although he originally started with the goal of making some extra income, he now sees the real possibility of a full-time income.
Wealthy Affiliate is not a get-rich-quick-opportunity. Working online does not work that way.
Put on your common sense hat for a moment. If you knew the secret of turning a $100 investment into a recurring $50,000 income per month, would you say anything to anyone? Probably not. You would milk that cash cow for as long as you could.
Instead, Wealthy Affiliate offers a common-sense solution:
