Are you feeling anything like I first felt about making money blogging?
🤯 You like the idea of making money online but are feeling overwhelmed.
Everyone seems to be making money these days and it just looks so easy. How can you know what’s the right way for YOU? It’s difficult to know where to start.
😩 Not sure how to really become a successful affiliate marketer.
It’s all about the mindset – and most beginners simply can’t figure it out. You want someone to show you step-by-step how to earn a nice side income with affiliate marketing without having to repeat the same mistakes everyone else is making.
🙇 Overwhelmed about finding the right information.
Email courses, webinars, masterclasses, etc. Everyone tells you something different – so how should you know where to start? What’s the best way for YOU to start building an online side income?
😱 Feeling terrified of wasting your time and not seeing real results.
Yes, you need to show some effort to build online income streams. And you’re busy, so you need a step-by-step action plan to follow at your own pace. You don’t want to waste your time on outdated and poor strategies. So many people do – don’t be one of them.
😭 Spending a lot of time working but still feeling stuck.
If you have been blogging for a while, it’s not uncommon to feel stuck with affiliate marketing. You just don’t understand how some bloggers make so much on autopilot while you work your butt off and barely make anything. You feel like you’re doing everything right, but where are the results?
😤 Sick and tired of your “normal” job and ready to go all in.
You want to build a real side income and grow it to gain financial freedom and flexibility. You want to spend more time with family and friends, and you’re serious about finally learning a system that actually works.
If any of these sound familiar, you’re in the right place…
The story of how I became an expert in blog monetization with a strategy that will actually get you results…
Because I know this evergreen strategy works in any niche…
How I went from $0 to earning over $4,000/month in affiliate commissions.
Yes, I started slow with my blog monetization back in the day. I made $0 for over 12 months until I realized I could turn my blog into a side hustle.
I started learning everything I could about blog monetization and affiliate marketing. That’s just how I roll. I get all in, gather all the information I can, and try every strategy I can to weed out the ones that don’t work.
So I bought every course… 🖥
Watched every YouTube video… 👀
Read every blog post I could find… 🔍
Listened to every podcast… 👂
For a while, I thought nothing would work. I just wanted to see my first affiliate commission roll in!
And eventually it happened:
I made my first $4 in January 2018.
That felt absolutely amazing! I had finally proven it was possible to make money promoting other people’s products to my own audience.
So I wasn’t a total failure, eh?
Now, how could I grow it?
$4 wasn’t exactly going to cover my rent or my grocery bills…
I started paying attention to the things that did work, even though I was making peanuts.
The next month, I made $117.14 – looking better!
I turned that into $225.59 the next month.
And then $241.45, then $318.85 the month after that.
But at this point, I felt a little stuck.
I was making some money through affiliate marketing, but I saw tons of bloggers make a full-time income with it.
I wanted to be one of them!
Back to the drawing board – back to work. 👇
3 crucial lessons about affiliate marketing 🕵
1. I made some massively stupid mistakes in the beginning and they still hold me back.
I didn’t have the right information from the get-go so I made the wrong choices at the beginning. My mistakes still slow me down even though I’ve solved them to achieve better results.
2. It’s not too complex, but it takes a very careful approach.
Making money through affiliate marketing is like building a house. You can’t just start building and hope for the best. Instead, you need a careful plan, and you have to start by setting a solid foundation – otherwise your house will collapse.
Affiliate marketing can be broken down into clear, consecutive steps you need to take. If you don’t know those steps, how could you ever achieve your goal in the first place?
3. You need to start now or get left behind…
Your audience is already out there searching for helpful information and the perfect products to make their lives easier.
The longer you wait, the more money you are leaving on the table. It’s all about starting TODAY if you don’t want to miss out on your earnings.
And here’s the good news!
After 4 months of hard work (and some tears) I had a new strategy in place.
First, $749/month. 💵
Then $990 the next month.
Then $1,253, then $1,984. 💵 💵
When I made $2,101 a month later, I knew my strategy was working.
From there, I started making $2,500–$5,000 monthly from affiliate marketing alone. 💰
I kept listening to my audience and improving what I was doing.
The best part?
I’m a part-time blogger.
I don’t have a team of VAs, SEO consultants, ghost writers, and marketing experts to help me out. This is a one-man show that I manage when I have a few hours to spare.
Why do I mention this? Because it means that you can earn good money even if you’re super busy.
If you’re trying to grow your earnings and break out of the $100–$1,000 per month range, here’s the truth:
The only thing that’s holding you back are your strategy and mindset.
You just need to take the right steps at the right time.
This step-by-step e-book for bloggers teaches you how to make money through affiliate marketing.
I show you how to become a successful affiliate from scratch, and you don’t need thousands of followers or tons of page views to start earning money.
And here are a few results from my efforts…
A bit short of $9K so far this year from a single affiliate network…
…earning $663 from another network in the past 30 days…
…making $3,050 from a single affiliate program in one month…
Now imagine what results I can help you get.
I couldn’t be more stoked to finally publish this guide! 🥳
If I can achieve real results blogging part-time in competitive niches, it’ll be a blast to see what my strategy does for you in less competitive fields!

Who is Affiliate Marketing Profits for?
This guide is going to be the perfect roadmap to follow with your new blog. If you have started a blog and need more information on how to start making money with it, then you are in the right place.
Bloggers who have zero to low affiliate earnings
If you feel like hitting an invisible ceiling with your earnings, this guide shows you how to find the right affiliate products and increase your commissions without selling your soul.
If you haven’t seen any significant affiliate earnings in the past, look no further. This guide is the perfect place to craft an affiliate marketing strategy that works and gets results!
Hard-working people who are serious about building a sustainable income source
This guide is for people who are willing to put in the hard work and stay honest with their followers. If you want to see real results and grow your earnings, this guide walks you through everything you must do.
Who is Affiliate Marketing Profits NOT for?
People looking for a get-rich-quick scheme
This guide will not help you get rich quick. Affiliate marketing takes time and hard work, and it doesn’t offer any instant gratification. You will have to put in your best effort to see results. Once you do, your earnings will ramp up with the system I teach in the guide.
People who expect others to do their work for them
This is not a 2–hour guide. This is not a 1–week guide even. This guide has a ton of information that covers everything you need to start earning affiliate commissions and grow your earnings. This is not a brief overview of how to get people to click on your affiliate links. It will take time to complete, learn, and implement everything in this guide.
People who aren't interested in helping others
Yes, affiliate marketing is about earning money. But it’s even more about helping your audience with what you know. If you’re only interested in making a quick buck and don’t want to listen to your audience to help them with useful information, affiliate marketing isn’t for you.
Do you know what the problem with most affiliate marketing guides is?
1: They are too vague.
Honestly, 95% of the “gurus” out there are teaching the same stuff. They don’t dive deeper into detail, but rather just state the obvious and expect their students to figure out the rest.
I wasted thousands of bucks on outdated courses that lacked depth. Big words. Big promises. Little substance.
What you need is a step-by-step system that you can follow at your own pace. A system that is practical and hands-on.
2: They are not truly beginner-friendly.
Yes, most courses and guides are packed with information. But they don’t start at the very beginning where you must begin if you want to build a solid foundation.
My approach is different: I walk you through the absolute basics and the most fundamental strategies first. Each chapter walks you one step closer to your affiliate income goal.
3: They use outdated/ineffective techniques that don’t work anymore.
First of all, affiliate marketing is evolving. Lots of bloggers and experts who have been doing it for 10+ years share techniques that worked back then. And hey, that’s great.
But those strategies just don’t cut it anymore.
You need to learn from someone who’s still growing and improving, just like you will be.
4: They promise unrealistic results.
When you dive into affiliate marketing, the truth is that there are no shortcuts. You need to put in the work to grow your earnings. That’s what every successful affiliate marketer has done.
Yes, some bloggers can make $10,000/month and more through affiliate marketing. But that’s not what you should expect to make anytime soon.
I created this guide based on what I’ve learned and experienced as a part-time blogger. I’ve built everything from the ground up without hiring a VA, an SEO expert, or a copywriter. I know it’s possible to earn a full-time income working part-time as an affiliate marketer and blogger.
5: They don’t teach you how to REALLY convert readers into affiliate income.
Finding dozens of cool affiliate products is great. Linking to them is even more exciting. You may even see a few commissions roll in.
But the truth is: you can do so much more.
While tons of bloggers make some money from affiliate marketing, they mostly neglect the most important secret to generating commissions.
That secret is: you don’t need tons of visitors to earn decent money. What you need is the right mindset – which I will share throughout the guide.
