Bloggers and online influencers can all successfully promote products to their audience and earn an income, while being genuine and trustworthy.
I started my blog in August of 2011, at the age of 22, without any hopes of ever earning an income from it. I started it as a hobby - just a way to journal life and talk about my personal finance situation.
I decided to look into affiliate marketing after a few years of blogging. I had always skipped over it, because I thought my blog was too small to make any real money from affiliate marketing. Plus, I just didn't think it was possible to earn a living from affiliate marketing.
Me, being able to make money while I'm sleeping or on vacation?
I surely did not think that would be possible.
Then, I started applying different affiliate marketing strategies to my blog, and they were working. I saw my blogging income increase dramatically every single month.
Now, I wake up and cannot believe the amount of income I am earning through affiliate marketing, all while living a great life and being able to help my audience.
I now travel full-time with my husband and our two dogs, and I earn over $100,000 a month regularly from blogging.
Whether you are a brand new blogger or if you've been blogging for years, this course will help you with your affiliate marketing strategies.
I have talked to several bloggers about how much money they earn through affiliate income, and the answers still surprise me. There are bloggers out there with millions of visitors who aren't making affiliate income.
That doesn't have to be the case, though.
This step-by-step online course for bloggers teaches you how to make money through affiliate marketing.
I show you how to succeed at affiliate marketing, and you don't even need millions of page views or tons of followers to start making money.
And, even better, it actually works!
"Michelle is unbelievable. I had a decent amount of traffic, but struggled with using affiliates wisely. I used to get really overwhelmed with affiliates and would be disappointed when I didn't see results from the enormous amount of effort I was putting into it.
Michelle was able to quickly identify what needed to be changed and within one month, my income rose 40% and has since quadrupled only 4 months after working with her! My income was $6,469.50 before I talked to Michelle, immediately jumped to $9,362.64 the next month and is now $24,680.25 (four months later) and climbing!
Michelle is my go-to person for step by step affiliate income strategy." - Rosemarie Groner, Budget Guru, The Busy Budgeter
"Since taking Michelle's course 5 months ago, my monthly page view average has been 36,715 but my affiliate marketing income has grown from an average of $272.94 per month to $4,400.19 per month. That’s more than 1,500% growth! Within just 5 quick months, I’ve made more than $21,000 directly from the affiliate marketing tips in this course…. I made more than $10,000 in just March 2017 alone! Low page views is not an excuse for low affiliate marketing income. You don’t have to struggle to earn a few dollars a month. Invest in yourself & get educated to start building your business right away. Let Michelle show you how an expert does it!" - Saira Perl, Blogger, MomResource
Many bloggers and online influencers skip over affiliate marketing. They either think it's too hard, that it's a waste of time, that they will turn followers away, or that their followers just won't be interested.
I recently asked various bloggers how much they were earning from affiliate marketing. The most common answer was somewhere around $500 or less.
Some even said $0.
This included several bloggers who receive 1,000,000 page views or more every month.
These bloggers all have the same problem. It’s that they don’t realize how much money they are leaving on the table, and many don’t know how to approach affiliate marketing the correct way.
Perhaps you've tried affiliate marketing in the past, but nothing seemed to work.
Trust me, I know how you feel. When I started out blogging, I knew NOTHING about it.
I was afraid to try new things, and I was definitely afraid of affiliate marketing. I didn't want to scare my readers away or waste my time.
Now, I earn over $50,000 a month through affiliate marketing, and I’m sharing all of my best tips. I did the hard part and personally tested all of my methods, so I know they work.
Now, all you have to do is apply them to your blog!
"I started my blog in March 2015 and didn't even know what affiliate marketing meant. And....I didn't do much about it. I think my largest month was around $500 last year and then died down to sometimes only a few bucks per month. It wasn't my focus, but I didn't realize I was leaving money on the table, meaning I was losing money every month! I decided to enroll in Michelle's course, and I quickly noticed I didn't know a thing when it came to true Affiliate Marketing! No wonder it just 'wasn't working for me'...
Results from the first 60 days of taking the course:
I am still nowhere close to implementing everything I've learned [from the course], but....My August affiliate income was $1,792.26.
That's a $1,705 increase since I became a student of Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing. So, my investment in the class was worth it!"
