Money from affiliate marketing… This is a question that friends constantly ask us.
Most of them look in awe at these affiliate marketers… who make claims of the outrageous amount of money they make online.
For those who are clueless about it, affiliate marketing is just another method to make money online by promoting others' products or services, for which, the affiliate, is paid a commission. When people buy some of the affiliate products or services that the affiliate promotes, they are paid a commission.
Anyway, returning to our main topic…
Can We Really Make Money From Affiliate Marketing?
Well, honestly, the answer is a NO!
We are not being sarcastic here – this is a hard-core fact.
We say this because, affiliate marketers usually start out without any know-how. They begin their affiliate marketing journey, by blogging to everybody about everything, that may fall in their line of proficiency. They even go to the extent of even try to teach others on how to make money from affiliate marketing!
We also tell people that affiliate marketing is more profitable to the company whose product or service you are selling, and we will shortly tell you why!
It is more than obvious, that affiliate marketing is more advantageous to the company that you promote, and not to the affiliate marketer!
The people who REALLY are making money from affiliate marketing are those, who are selling their own products and services.
We have come across few affiliate marketers who are making a significant income from affiliate marketing. Besides, those who are making money are generally not willing to share their secret with anyone.
It is more like a numbers game, and for those affiliates who are starting out, the odds are stacked against them. Just think, why on earth would a successful affiliate marketer who has discovered a way to make some easy money from affiliate marketing. would want to divulge their secret with other wannabe affiliates for a few measly dollars?
Remember there are no shortcuts to the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, and you don't need a $50 e-Book to tell you that. It is a lot of hard work and grind, learning, adjusting every time. Most of all, you need to have a lot of time on your hands. So, if you contemplate starting a website, promoting a new product, give yourself at least six months, to expect any form of returns.
And, if you do not have six months to invest in designing and building your site, with quality content, then don’t bother wasting your time.
In short, there are no shortcuts!
If you think that, this is not true, then look around and try finding someone who easily made it in affiliate marketing. The answer would generally be a NO.
As mentioned earlier, the guys who are doing REALLY will not talk, as they are not dumb…
WE however, say that you can make money from affiliate marketing, but let us warn you that it is not going to be easy, You may think that all it takes is to just build a website, put up some affiliate products and watch the money roll in. Don't be disappointed. We know this because, we’ve also come through this phase.
However, if you have come here with intentions on “how to earn money from affiliate marketing,” there are a few points you ought to know. Before we begin, let us affirm that we cannot work any magic for you, as we are no soothsayers. We have had our initial success with affiliate marketing, which we slowly converted into a full time profitable affiliate business.
Survey On Money From Affiliate Marketing.
A Survey Breakdown On Money Made By Affiliate Marketers
From the above chart, it is obvious that close to 20 percent of affiliates reported over $1 Million in profit. Now, this is a lot of moolah!
If you analyze closely, the above can be broken down to six earning brackets in this industry.
• The Affiliate Trainee/ Intern – Who likely loses money.
• The Affiliate Beginner – Income range from $0/day up to $100/day.
• Low Level Affiliate – Income range from $100/day up to $300/day.
• Intermediate Affiliate – An Income range from $300/day up to $3,000/day.
• Top Level Affiliate – Income ranging above $3,000/day.
• The Super Level Affiliate – Those who make an average of $10,000/day.
Just remember that we are talking about profit and not revenue!
To explain this in detail, an affiliate making $90,000/month in REVENUE could be worse off than the affiliate making an assured $200/day as profit with no overheads.
So, just remember that profit is sanity and revenue is vanity.
Therefore, it is more of a wild fantasy, to calculate your annual salary, based on your daily income. In other words, if suppose you earn $2,000 on the first day of your affiliate marketing program, DO NOT assume that you will make about $750,000 for that year.

The biggest lesson that we have learned is that you have to start somewhere, and in all likelihood that your first attempt will probably end in failure. And as you keep learning from your mistakes, you are certain to make money (we know that it is a cliché, but it is true).
