How long till I get paid was the first question I had also when I first started learning about affiliate sales and Internet Marketing. Everybody wants to make money so this is an understandable question.
The answer, however, is a little more complicated than that.
There are many variables that will ultimately decide how long it will take a person to start making money as an online affiliate for any company.
For Instance…Is your website designed to be profitable and easy to navigate? Do you even have a website and a blog? Is it just you working alone or do you have a team of people working with you? How much money do you have to invest? If you have little money to invest in your business, are you at least willing to invest a serious amount of your own quality time? Do you have plenty of targeted website traffic?
Does your site make it available for your customers and visitors to opt-in to your newsletter?
As you can probably tell, I could go on with the questions!
Now lets instead discuss facts.
The fact is that most affiliates, up to 97%, fail to ever make money with affiliate marketing or any other type of Internet Marketing. This is because they are working by themselves and lack the personal commitment it takes to develop a real working knowledge of online marketing.
Another fact……As with any other serious business, monetary gain will take place when relationships are built and trust is earned. You can build those relationships and that trust very fast with disposable money and extra people or you can build it slower with less money and on your own.
Either way…. it must be built!
Now, more than ever before in history, the business of Internet Marketing and online affiliate sales can be extremely lucrative for those who are willing to gain the knowledge and put forth the effort required to be successful at it .
Instead of asking “how long does it take for online affiliates to make money”……. try telling yourself who cares if it takes 2 months or 2 years.
Just know that if you’re committed to what you do and also enjoy your work while remaining sure to keep it about helping others you can’t go wrong.
Any online affiliate or Internet Marketer who can grasp that will earn droves of money over time.

For those of you who don’t already have your websites and blogs up and running please go here to start building your own business website.. For everybody else who has been emailing me and asking “What should I sell on my website”. I would recommend looking into herbal supplements. This company pays an incredible 50% commission for the lifetime of all your customers. So every time your customers re-order you get paid again. You can be paid via check or through PayPal. What you need to consider here is that herbal supplement sales recently hit the $5 billion mark for the US alone. This is an incredible amount of money! Not only do these products sell very well but it will give you the opportunity to feel good about what you’re selling. All the product is tested and approved and the company has over 10 years experience in the herbal supplement field so they obviously know what they’re doing. All you have to do is sign up and start your affiliate account and send them traffic via links or banners. It’s all copy and paste easy html stuff. Key features for you to note when you get into the site is that they offer updated affiliate tracking. The tracking cookies never expire and it doesn’t matter what part of the world you live in. They have affiliates all over the world. The company will convert the customers into sales for you and that is the way you want it. You don’t want the added worry about having to do any selling of the product yourself. They offer over 40 different products such as Zoft Hoodia Gum-Pure Hoodia gordonii, anti nictone products, virility pills, Euphoria perfume, Zoft Breast Gum and much more.
Based on just the US figures alone, proper key wording, optimization and some good traffic generation you could probably just sell this product alone on your website or ecommerce store and do very well! As a matter of fact I’m seriously considering setting up another website just for this product as I am now an affiliate for the company myself. I’m pretty excited about this opportunity and it looks like they have plenty business to go around. For those who have asked me “What should I sell on my website”, I hope this helps a bit and I really don’t mind you asking. I’m happy to help.
