Affiliate Marketing as a Full-Time Job

Q: Hello shawn, im a 18 year old high school student and internet affiliate marketing has really interested me in terms of making money and i would like to make it my full time job. I have not started any marketing yet because i am lost on where to start because i am reading all these different things online about how to be succesfull, and i dont trust some of the people who are giving me this information. I know your are succesfull at what you do and i would like to know what would be the best way to get started for a young newbie like me. Thank you.

Shawn CollinsA: One thing I’d like to tell you right away is that with you just getting started and not really knowing what you are doing, you should not expect to make this a full-time job any time soon.

I urge you to go out and get whatever job you can find to bring in some money as you learn more about affiliate marketing. Even if you have to work for minimum wage in a retail store, you should really get a job now.

Affiliate marketing is not going to bring in instant money for you. And in many cases, people do not earn full-time money as affiliates.

So, it’s essential to have some cash coming in from other sources as you work on the learning curve of affiliate marketing. I’d suggest looking at a site I created at ExtraMoneyAnswer.com.

It’s a free resource where I go through the whole process of becoming a content affiliate, including how to come up with an idea for a site, the content, how to drive traffic, and how to make money with the site.

This is neither a fast nor lucrative way to earn money, but it is a way to make some extra money while you gain a better understanding of the way things work in affiliate marketing.

Unless you have some money to invest in paid search, it’s not realistic to become a full-time affiliate from the start. Be patient, learn, and you may well achieve that sort of success down the road.
