Affiliate marketing can be a great way to make extra income online. In fact, there are more and more people that are now starting online businesses with the aim of making a full-time income from affiliate marketing.
Today we are going to look at what I consider to be the best, most effective and up to date way to learn affiliate marketing. Best of all, in this article, you will discover how to learn affiliate marketing for free.
Getting The Facts About Affiliate Marketing
Whilst the internet is a fantastic place for information, there are some subjects that go out of date after a while. Affiliate marketing is one of those subjects where you need to be very careful about the source of your information. Ask anyone who has had several years’ experiences of online marketing and they will tell you that affiliate marketing has changed quite a lot over the years. For this reason, you must take a great deal of care when it comes to getting the right information.
Hi, my name is Andrew and I have been working online for around ten years. In that time I have seen quite a vast change in how affiliate marketing is done. So I would like to assure you that the techniques that you read about here are the very best option for getting started online.
The Benefits Of A Free Affiliate Marketing System
Many people will tell you that in order to make money in any business, you must first invest money. Affiliate marketing is one of the few businesses where this simply isn’t true. You can start up online with an affiliate marketing business with nothing more than a computer and an internet connection.
In fact, when I first started out, I didn’t have a lot of money and so that is exactly what I did. Not only can you learn affiliate marketing for free, but you can also build a website and run your business at zero cost too.
There are both pro’s and con’s to running a free affiliate marketing business and we will look at those in a while. But for now, rest assured that you can make money with affiliate marketing and you can start your own affiliate business for just the cost of your internet connection.
How To Learn Affiliate Marketing For Free – Getting Started
The website that you are looking at right now was created with the goal of helping as many people as possible to avoid scams and to find genuine ways to make money online. I teamed up with a business called “Wealthy Affiliate” in 2015 with the goal of helping as many people as possible to learn affiliate marketing.

Helpful article to a newbie when it comes to affiliate marketing like me Andrew – thanks. You make a compelling case for Wealthy Affiliate I must say the fact you can try the platform for free is a big plus and I am tempted to give it a try. Do I have to provide my credit card details when I sign up for free?
Hi there Steve. No you don’t need any credit card details! Unlike just about every other training course out there, when Wealthy Affiliate says it’s free, it means free! The WA membership is free for as long as you need it too. You can continue with the free training and even the free websites for as long as you wish. The only catch is that you need to keep the websites active if you want to keep them. In other words Wealthy Affiliate wont host your free website if you can’t be bothered to work on it.
As you are new to internet marketing this will be the best possible start for you. Give it a try, there really is nothing to lose by at least following the ten step course for beginners.
This is a fantastic article youâ€™ve written. I really enjoyed reading this and got a lot out of it. I especially love the images you have used, very captivating.
Very informative and a lot of information to digest. But you have managed to describe the many ways to achieve a somewhat complex subject into something very simple to understand and put to practice.
I also completely agree when you mentioned that affiliate marketing is one of those subjects where you need to be very careful about the source of your information. I am following your advice of using Wealthy Affiliate and it really is great training.
Great read, thank you!
Hi there. Yeah its a really deal to get the right information from the right place. I remember when I first started out, I actually got pretty lucky. I started off with an affiliate marketing training course that actually wasn’t bad at all. However, I then wanted a second opinion and went to what I now know was a big mistake. I wanted to learn everything about affiliate marketing and although I didn’t know it at the time I was actually learning a technique that is now classed as being rather unethical. The thing is, these methods are still being used and most of them don’t work now in the slightest. As a newcomer to affiliate marketing, things can get really confusing if you don’t listen to the right people.
Thanks for explaining so well how to learn affiliate marketing for free, free is always good.
You mention Wealthy Affiliate offer a 1-week free membership, what happens if I upgrade but then somewhere along the way I run out of money, is it ok to be a free member again?
Another thing I’m worried about, let`s say I create a free website because, why would I want to invest in one if they are already offering 2 free websites.
The somewhere along the line I decide to leave Wealthy Affiliate,will they let me take the website I created or do i have to lose it because i nolonger a member?
Thanks for your answer
Hi there. Thank you for contacting me with regards to the membership. Just to make things clear, the membership isn’t just for one week. You actually get a free membership that lasts forever. The beginners membership contains a full training course and one to one training. It’s the one to one coaching that is only available for one week. But you can stay a free member for as long as you like and take as long as you need to with the training course.
If you upgrade your membership and then later on decide that you don’t want to be a premium member, then you can still be a free member and keep the benefits of the beginners training and free websites.
With regards to your question about upgrading from free websites to paid ones… The free websites are yours for as long as you keep them up to date. The free sites have “site rubix” at the end. A premium domain name that you purchase yourself will end with dot net, dot com or if you want to follow in our footsteps you could go with a dot zone domain. Owning your own domain name just looks more professional and its an extension of yourself and your business. Free websites are a great way to get started. A premium website, costs about $15 and just looks a lot more professional and reputable.
If you decide to leave Wealthy Affiliate you will get to keep your website! The site that you create within WA, is your very own property on the web! Nobody will try to take that away from you.
Hope that helps! If you need any more questions answering, just let me know.
All the best,
