How to Start an Online Business

How much money can you make doing affiliate marketing?

I can’t make any promises regarding how much money you’ll make in this business, but I can tell you a LOT of people are making massive incomes. Most affiliates do not share how much money they make, but there is one affiliate marketer who does publish his earnings. His name is Adam Enfroy (, and he routinely earns $80,000 per month, mostly from affiliate marketing. Granted, he is super successful, and your mileage may vary, but it is completely reasonable to hope to make 10% of what Adam makes. Shoot, even 1% would be a welcome development for most people.

Pro Tip: I’ve participated in a lot of affiliate marketing training over the years, some good, some bad, but NOTHING compares to the free Affiliate Bootcamp video training offered by my friends at Wealthy Affiliate. It is simply the best there is. Their step-by-step videos will show you exactly what to do. I spent a decade teaching myself this stuff. Affiliate Bootcamp will teach you everything in a few weeks.

How to build an affiliate marketing business

First, you will choose a niche. Then you will establish yourself as a trusted authority in your niche. Next, you will build your audience. Then you will recommend products/services to that audience using affiliate links. Finally, when people make a purchase after clicking one of your links, you will make a commission.

Note: We are not trying to make a quick sale; rather, we are working to build trust and to offer a legitimate service, connecting a consumer with a product or service he/she really needs.

This is the absolute easiest way to build a long-term, profitable online business.
