As some of you know, I’ve resisted video for way too long. I’ve decided I really need to give this whole YouTube thing a real try, so basically right now what you’re seeing is simply me experimenting with how to create decent videos.


I’m only one guy and honestly, I don’t have the time to dump hours and hours into making videos, so while I need to keep things simple, I would love to hear any suggestions or comments you have about these videos (good or bad, I can handle it!).

In this video, I’m covering one of the very basic questions, which is how to get started with affiliate marketing for the complete newbie. When I say the complete newbie, I mean just that. When I first started, I knew absolutely nothing about affiliate marketing and have grown my business into a 6 figure dream life. With so many get-rich-quick scammers out there, this is just my way of injecting some truth and honesty. You might not always like what I have to hear, but I’ll always be truthful with you.

Enjoy, thanks for watching, and please visit my website!

  1. First video in a LONG time! If you're not subscribed to my channel yet, now would be a good time to do it. I'll be releasing tons of affiliate marketing related videos from tips for beginners to advanced techniques for seasoned pro's. I've never been much of a video editor, so this is a learning process for me, but it's a start!

  2. the problem I'm having with choosing wealthy affiliate is that it is an MLM, I don't want to recruit to make money I want to work to learn about affiliate marketing and building that business as well as my own travel business. I don't want to do network marketing.

  3. Thanks for responding so quickly. Right now I have a weebly site for my travel business and I want and plan to keep it. Everything seems to be about wordpress, I do have some experience with wordpress, not much as I am not tech savvy at all but I know you can do endless things with wordpress but weebly is so nice. Do you have to use wordpress? Also I would be happy to join under you if I decide to join I'm just not yet sure. I really need step by step, it will be my and my daughter doing this together and we are both visual learners. Also, I really want my travel business to grow. Will this help me with that as well? Thanks again

  4. Hey Mike! Great video!I've got a wordpress page (shell) up and running but no idea with regards to what content etc to add and yes i'm a complete newbie but i'm very keen. Can you send me the link to the training prog you have about that? I'm from South Africa so Dollars hurt us here with the exchange rate etc LOL

  5. Great video.
    I might be able to hammer in the content for 2 years expecting that it will commissions come in later
    How to work with no money for 2 years,, do you recommend I work a job and side hustle for 2 years and then go full time affiliate route?

  6. Thanks so much for your great video for newbies. I signed up for a free Wealthy Affiliate account just a few days ago. I have been assigned a personal coach but I haven't really done anything yet. Are you still available for assistance getting started now in 2020?
