In fact, your work fills you with so much passion and inspiration, you can’t wait to start your days! While everyone else hates Mondays, you look forward to what they’ll bring. While others wait in bumper to bumper traffic just to get to the office, your commute is a simple walk right down the hall from your bedroom.

But you like to play, too. Now, because of your business you can travel, try new experiences, meet new people from all over the world, take afternoons off, and generally (and thoroughly) enjoy life. As you were meant to!

Well, I’m here to tell you: starting a blog with affiliate marketing can help you do all of the above.

There are good, honest people doing affiliate marketing online who make five, even six figures per month. I’m not talking about the dudes in their flashy cars and giant McMansions, but humble, hard smart working people with spouses and families. Wanderlusters. People who hated their jobs and used blogging and affiliate marketing as a way to escape the 9 to 5 grind. People who lost their jobs and had to figure out how to replace their income. Regular, everyday people just like you and I.

There are others who do it as a side hustle to make an extra few hundred dollars a month. Like stay at home parents. College students. Empty Nesters. People who love their jobs but want and/or need some extra income (who doesn’t these days?).

No matter what your reason or financial goals, I believe that affiliate marketing can help you reach them. And I wrote this book to help teach you how.

Who am I and how do I know all this? Well, I’m Jules I write this very blog that you’re reading right now, all about affiliate marketing. (I also have three “niche” sites… more about those later!) I started my first online business shortly after my second daughter was born: coding websites with one hand while cuddling my baby in the other. My first affiliate partnership was in 1998.

Since then my business has evolved (and yours might, too!) But in early 2019, I realized that I loved everything about affiliate marketing, and decided to go all in.

You see, I’m an introvert. And even if you’re not, I think you’ll agree that these are some pretty fantastic perks of a blog + affiliate business:

  • I set my own hours
  • I get to work on things I love
  • I work where I want to (as long as I have Wi-Fi and my laptop!)
  • I don’t have to create, store, package or ship any products
  • I don’t have to deal with customer service issues
  • I don’t have to worry about exchanges, refunds or returns
  • My income potential is limitless
  • I can build several of these businesses and sell them at a hefty profit if I want to
  • I don’t have to be an “expert”, I just need to have a passion
  • My start-up costs can be less than $100
  • Everything I need to know is freely (or affordably) available online… or in my book!

If that sounds like a business you’d like to be in, too, please read Affiliate Marketing the Right Way: How to Make Money Online, Authentically and Successfully, because in it I teach you all about blogging with affiliate marketing, and how it can help you reach your own goals, and create success on your terms.

So, should you start a blog in 2020?

There’s one common thing I think everyone includes in their definition of success and that’s freedom.

If you’re looking to create a life and business that gives you freedom, I believe that starting a blog that you monetize with affiliate marketing is one (awesome) way you can achieve it. I hope to not only convince you of this, but to also give you the ideas, tools, resources, information and inspiration to make it all happen.

What I won’t do is promise you fancy Italian sports cars, luxury yachts, or millions of dollars — although there are certainly people doing affiliate marketing who have those things. But for every one of those people, there are probably hundreds, or even thousands of others who earn little to nothing.

That’s just the plain (hard) truth.

What I’d like to do is help you land somewhere in the middle.

Making maybe a few hundred extra dollars a month, or $2000 to $10,000 monthly, or more. (And if you really want to make those millions, well, you have to start by earning $1 first, and my book can certainly help you with that, and beyond!)

You see, I believe in you. I believe you can make this “affiliate marketing thing” a success.

Why? (Especially since we’ve never met!?)

Because you’ve shown a true desire to succeed just by purchasing reading this far. And once you’ve read Affiliate Marketing the Right Way, you’ll have the information and tools you need to get started on the road to success.

When you put this information into action you can start to create that dream life into a reality.
