Can I Make $400 A Month With Affiliate Marketing?
I was asked this question by one of my followers on Social media and I want to give a detailed answer here so anyone who might be having the same question can benefit from the answer I give. Obviously the answer is yes, you can make $400 a month and much more with affiliate marketing. Affiliate marketing has the potential of making you great passive income. The only thing that makes Affiliate marketing difficult, is finding the right formula.
So What Will It Take To Make Your $400 A Month Or More?
And to be honest, unless you take time to learn about affiliate marketing and implement what you learn into your business, then it will be very hard for you to make your first $100 because obviously the competition is fierce. But if you learn how to do things correctly, you will be able to create a great affiliate marketing business.
The great thing about affiliate marketing is that there is no limit, the same way you will be able to make $400 per month, it’s the same way you will be able to make $4000 per month. And once you start growing your affiliate marketing business, things will just start falling into place nicely.
But I will not lie to you, the first 3 to 6 months will be very difficult for you. You might even start questioning everything you are doing, and to be honest, I think it helps to be a part of a community of people who are in the same business as you are, because you can exchange ideas. And not only can you exchange ideas, but you can also see that you are not alone, which gives lots of encouragement.
You Can’t Do It Alone

Affiliate Marketing Is The Best Way To Make Money Online
Affiliate marketing is a very lucrative business and more so now than before, I am sure you have noticed that big offline business is closing down, have you wondered why big chains are closing down? Let’s start with the travel giant ThomasCook, if you are not familiar with this company, I will touch on it briefly so you can get an idea of what they were.
Thomas Cook was a tourism company that was founded in 1841, they had been in business for 178 years, they were selling holiday packages, and cruises. Now, why would such a big company go down like that? my theory is that companies like Airbnb, booking.com, Skyscanner, Kayak, and others had something to do with the fall of the giant that was Thomas Cook.
People were not interested in holiday packages anymore, they prefer getting a cheap flight, and an Airbnb, and perhaps get to travel to different destinations and see more things. Rather, than book a Thomas Cook package where you are just flown to a resort and then you stay there for a week or two and then come back home.
The truth is companies like Airbnb changed how people travel and how people book their holidays, Affiliate marketing also played a big role on exposing people to different ways of traveling, with so many travel bloggers online, people were able to read about different destinations, and were able to click on affiliate links and book their own holidays.
What Could Thomas Cook And Others Have Done Differently?
The fact is many big companies and corporations did not take online marketing seriously and now we are witnessing the consequences of ignoring online marketing. The companies that embraced the change and growth and started using publishers/affiliates to make their presence known online, they are ripping the benefits big time.
If Thomas Cook had changed the way they did business to accommodate the changing times, and also accommodate the demands of holidaymakers, who no longer went to shops to book their holidays. Why would you go to a shop to book your holiday when you can book it at the comfort of your home on your computer? not to mention if Thomas Cook had Used publishers to strengthen their online presence, things would have been different.
Another thing, they could have done is to make sure that the travelers had choices of booking flights, hotels and other services separately. Package holidays were no longer appealing to most travelers and holidaymakers, and Thomas Cook failed to notice this fact and the numbers of travelers kept going down and they still didn’t change their strategy.
What Does All This Mean To You As An Affiliate Marketer?
this means that now the companies who are making the same mistakes as Thomas Cook, will change their strategy and that is where you come in, more companies are looking for affiliate markets to promote their services online, the last one week I have been contacted by 5 different companies that want me to promote their products, but unfortunately I am not in the niches they are in. Plus I really don’t have to create more websites and venture into new niches.
If there ever was a great time to start a website for affiliate marketing, is now. Is It gonna be easy for the first couple of months? no, it won’t be, are gonna make your $400 the first couple of months? probably not, even the most successful affiliate marketers will tell you that they were broke for a while when they were working on their affiliate marketing business.
But when that cash started flowing, it was sweet.
Although affiliate marketing is not a get-rich-quick sort of thing, and requires lots of time and work not to mention lots of learning, it is a great way to make money online. Once you acquire the skills needed to run a successful online business, there is no limit to the amount of money you can make with affiliate marketing.
If you are promoting good quality products and services, and you are able to drive organic traffic to your website by using SEO, or PPC campaigns, you are going to make money with affiliate marketing.
There is lots of money to be earned online, the only things that will limit you are lack of time, lack of patience and lack of good affiliate training program. As I have mentioned earlier, you can learn everything you need to learn about affiliate marketing by joining me in Wealthy Affiliate.
