Affiliate Marketing: Earn Passive Income and Let the Money Work for You

Bird’s-eye view of Affiliate Marketing… 


How to earn Passive Income through Affiliate Marketing? But first let me define to you what is Passive Income? and what is Affiliate Marketing?



  • In it’s simplest definition, passive income is the income that you can earn while you are on a vacation.
  • You let the money work you.


  • A marketing arrangement by which an online retailer pays commission to an external website for traffic or sales generated from its referrals.
  • You earn commission/s whenever someone buys a product through your unique affiliate link.

There are two approaches in Affiliate Marketing:

  • You can offer an affiliate program to others or you can sign up to be another business’s affiliate. As the business sweeping an affiliate program, you’ll pay your affiliates a commission fee for every lead or sale they spin to your website. Your target is to find affiliates who’ll reach unstoppable markets.
  • You join another company’s affiliate program. It’s all about extra revenue. Join those affiliate programs with no upfront cost to you. It just takes a little time to plan your strategy and select the partners that will have the greatest impact on your business.


“In 2017 there are over 3.75 BILLION active Internet users searching for information, looking for solutions to their problems, and purchasing products/services. This is YOUR audience and this is the reality of the opportunity!”

So while just browsing the internet, and surely you are one of the billion active internet users, doing ‘good-for-nothing’, why not start today? Study affiliate marketing and be one of those affiliates creating wealth through technology, by just promoting other products.

Indeed, there are lots of top affiliate programs you can sign up to. I can name a few best after my careful and painstaking research.

  2. Amazon – thousands of retail & digital products you can promote, from electronics to home garden, etc.
  3. Commission Junction – you can promote brands, products & services

  6. Linkshare – also called Rakuten Affiliate Network
  7. Truly Rich Club (for Filipinos and for foreigners who have Filipino/Filipina partners who want to invest in Philippine Stock Market)


How Affiliate Marketing Works?


As illustrated above, affiliate marketing is just simple. You, being the affiliate, joins an affiliate program and promote certain products and/or services through your affiliate link by dint of your website for the particular company or merchants. Then merchants will pay you commissions as an affiliate.

Your WEBSITE serves as the depot of your AFFILIATE promotions. It is important that you first have to create your own website. When someone visits your site, click your affiliate link, and if sale happens because the customer buys something you promoted through your affiliate link, the MERCHANTS then pays you your commission income. Joining any Affiliate Network/program is free, and there is an affiliate program designed for all, you can study and choose which one is best. But later I will discuss which affiliate program I could highly recommend for beginners and which has an extensive training that will guide you from A to Z.

How Much Income An Affiliate Can Earn?

Unlimited income you can earn from affiliate marketing, as much as you can and as much as you want! It depends on the amount of traffic you can get into your website.

Let’ say you have 3000 clicks per month to your site. In case, 20% of it is click-through ratio, so you have 600 people every month is clicking through your affiliate links. And for example you are promoting something that leads to $100 per sale and you are converting at 1:20 (30 overall conversions), your income for that month is $3000 (30 sale conversion x $100/sale); and for a year that’s $36,000. That’s hypothetical and obtainable amount. And there’s a lot more affiliates out there who’s already earning an average of $1000 / day.

There you go! Now, you’ve seen the bird’s-eye view of affiliate marketing, how it works and your earnings potential. It’s time for you to join and register to some of the affiliate programs online and start creating wealth through Affiliate Marketing.

  1. What are your tips to getting into the right program? There are so many programs out there that you can be a part of to make passive, work-form home money. Its so hard to determine which ones will actual turn into money versus you paying to be a part of a program and you never see anything in the end. Plus I hate stalking people. Suggestions?

  2. Hello Marissa,

    This is a very instructive article and it is true. “Wealthy Affiliate” is easy to understand and recommendable if you want to make a website. If you want to earn money with it, that’s possible too. I do not use affiliate programs yet, as my first website is rather personal. I plan to make other websites though and I certainly plan to use some of the links you suggest in this article. Thank you!

    1. Thanks! All the best to your journey here at Wealthy Affiliate. Definitely you’re on the right path and you’ll learn more as you go through the trainings.

  3. I’ve been doing affiliate marketing for 3 years now and my traffic has yet to hit more than 100 visitors per day. I have been publishing twice a week for the past one year but my conversion has been really slow.

    How does one achieve 3000 clicks per month? Is there some kind of secret formula that I am not getting right? I appreciate whatever advice you might have. Thanks.
