Question: Is it possible to Make Money with Affiliate Marketing?
Answer: Yes, you can make Money with Affiliate Marketing Program and this I can say with my own experience.
As I am Making Money with my Ease Bedding Dot Com, which sells Amazon Products and is making around $500-700 monthly by the time of writing this post, April 16, 2019 and I hope it is going to grow more in future!
Sometimes we read advertisements, ‘Make Money just by Joining Our Program or by doing very little work’.
In my opinion, if you’re serious to Make Money Online, then you have to work hard, like we do in any other Job to Make Money.
When you read or listen to someone saying that Making Money Online is just fun or so Easy, I don’t believe in that, because it is not Easy, but for sure, anybody, who is doing hard work and at the same time on the right direction, will succeed definitely to Make Money Online.
There are many Ways to Make Money Online and the one that I like the most, is Affiliate Marketing.
Affiliate Marketing has become one of the Top Business Opportunities Online, because the Startup costs are almost Zero. But the Income you Generate can be a lot from it; such as from couple of hundreds to thousands of dollars.
The best thing to promote Affiliate Marketing is that, if you have your own BLOG and sending your Traffic to somebody else’s Site to Buy their Products or Services.
For every Sale initiated by a Unique link from your site, you Earn Affiliate Sale Commission.
Why to spend months on Creating your own and thousands to get the ball rolling, when there is Easy Way to Join an Affiliate Program, grab your Unique ID and promote it right away.
You can make happen your first Sale within few days, not even Weeks.
In the Beginning when your Blog is New and when you’re not getting Traffic from Search Engines, you can spend some time writing Useful Comments and you can get some Free Traffic.
Actually you as a Publisher, will be Rewarded when you help a Business by promoting their Products or Services.
For example, if you Sign Up for ‘Amazon Associate Program‘ and Promote its Products according to your own Choice by seeing the Nature of your Website/Blog and you will get a Commission. When you send the Visitor from your Site, makes a Purchase or Buy something from Amazon, then you get Commission.
Affiliate Marketing is one of the Quickest and Cheapest way(most of Affiliate Programs are usually Free) to Make Money Online, even the time, when your Website or Blog is not getting much Traffic!
Affiliate Marketing can be done Part time/Full time and many Bloggers are so Successful to Make Money with it.
As I am Home maker and I started it from filling Surveys, where I didn’t Make Money at all.
Then I signed up with Max Bounty and I worked with them almost for a year or so and that time I learned about Affiliate Marketing.
Making Money with Maxbounty CPA marketing is one of the best ways to make money online.
I used to make around $100 monthly, but that time I was not having any website or Blog.
Then I made my own Blog on Blogger.com and started to Promote Amazon’s Products and now I am having my own Two Blogs, just check below:-
- Ease Bedding, where I sell Amazon Products, such as; Bedding Sets, Quilts, Blankets, Curtains, Mattresses and much more..

What is Affiliate Marketing?
According to Wikipedia
“Affiliate Marketing is a type of performance based marketing in which a business rewards one or more affiliates for each visitor or customer bought by the affiliate’s own marketing efforts.”
As you can see above picture, it means, Affiliate Marketing is about relationships between Three Parties-Advertiser, Publisher and Consumer.
In simple words, Affiliate Marketing is one of oldest forms of Marketing, wherein you refer somebody to any Online Product and when that person Buys that Product according to your Recommendation, then you receive Commission.
The Commission varies from Cents to Thousand of Dollars, depends upon what Product you’re Promoting.
Companies Track with the Tracking URL(a Unique Link given to you by the Affiliate Company)
There are Several Affiliate Platforms, who host Affiliate Programs for many Businesses.
For example ShareAsale is one of these Big Affiliate Platforms and many Bloggers use them.
Sometimes you love to read again and again Some Blogs Articles to get some information. To give the Author of that Blog some Reward, you can purchase any product through his/her Affiliate links, which she/he has mentioned in her Blog Posts.

You can start promoting their products, which you think are most suitable for the nature of your Website.
Even you don’t have to Sell Products all the time to Make a Commission. Different Affiliate Programs use different Payment Terms; such as:-
- Pay Per Sale: In this Program, the Merchant pays to the percentage of the Sale Price when the Purchase is Completed Successfully. Means in Online Advertising Payment Model, which is based Solely on Qualifying Sales.
- Pay Per Click: PPC stands for Pay Per Click, means a Model Internet Marketing in which Advertisers Pay a Fee each time, when one of their Add is Clicked. Search Engine is one of the most popular forms of PPC. For example Search Engines such as Google allow Businesses and Individuals to Buy listings in their Search Results. And these listings appear alongside and increasingly above the non-paid Organic Search Results. Then Google paid every time when a User Clicks on the Sponsored Listing.
- Pay Per Lead: In this Program, you get Paid once the Referred Visitor provides his/her Contact Information on the Target Site by Filling Out a Simple Contact form. With MaxBounty, I used to promote their couple of Survey Programs and when the Visitor used to fill the form, then I used to make the Commission from them. Means in Pay Per Lead Program, the Advertiser only Pays for Leads Generated at their Destination Site. No Payment is made for visitors that don’t Sign Up.
