How To Make The Difference-Affiliate Marketing

The Proven 4-Step Affiliate Marketing Blueprint

This is the exact same formula I use to create a passive income and build a lucrative business online with NO prior experience in marketing or the internet...

Are there changes you want to in your life? Not just for you and your family but how to make the difference in many other lives.

You are a caring, loving person, but you have to pay the bills too. So many believe that to change lives you have to be in a helping profession like the medical field. But this is not so true. Running an online business can change so many lives.

My Story

I retired from ER nursing seven months ago. I didn’t want to stop being a nurse, but I couldn’t keep up like I used to. The contract job I had was working nights, and that was a nightmare so to speak.

When I stopped nursing, I began my affiliate marketing job. I needed something to do, and the internet fascinated me. I didn’t know much about it, but I wanted to learn.


The hardest part about beginning an online business was trying to convince myself I can make the difference in the lives of others. I couldn’t wrap my head around the concept that I was helping.

But I continue into this tremendous learning curve known as the internet. The more I learned, the more satisfied I felt. I really was making a difference in the lives of many.

I realized that I had become an integral part of how to make a difference because without me my circle of affiliate marketing would be broken. I also found that so many people want to change their lives and don’t have any idea how they can do this.

I am helping others to improve by teaching and sharing what I know. Once I grasped this concept, I increased my work to reach those in need. So, you see the world of online business will reach so many more than I could have reached in a 12-hour shift doing nursing.

In a moment I will expand on this concept. First, let me explain what affiliate marketing is then I will help put some perspective on how an online business can help so many more than we all realize.

Affiliate Marketing

I will make this as simplistic as I can for the beginners who want to learn how to make the difference with affiliate marketing

diagram explaining Affiliate Marketing23
  • You set up a website in a niche (a hobby, passion or a popular product) you like
  • You Affiliate (become a partner) with a company who promotes what you have on your site
  • An internet shopper (consumer) finds your website on Google through the search engine
  • Consumer buys a product you promote
  • You get paid by the Affiliate

You repeat this process over and over, and you make money over and over.

How are you changing lives?

1. You have transformed many aspects of your life financially, relationship and family
2. The Affiliate is happy because you are advertising their product free to both of you which is a win-win partnership
3. Because of your integrity, you have helped a consumer purchase from a trustworthy merchant
4. You made available to the consumer a more convenient way to shop which saved them time
5. The consumer is delighted with the new product that they needed 

Allow me to explain this in a bit more detail.

You have changed

I don’t know what situation you may be in, but everyone needs one or all of these 3, Time, Freedom and Money. With an online business, you can have the time you need with your family, the freedom to set your hours and create an income or extra money.

Happy Affiliate

You become a partner with a company and advertise their products. The process is free to both of you. The Affiliate inventories, sells and ships the products, and you increase your income. You helped to increase profits for you and the Affiliate.


You are honest and trusted. On your website, you convey this with your branding identity. You set the consumer at ease and helped them to have a stress free shopping environment.

Build Your Identity As The First Step To Entrepreneurship

Convenient shopping

Everyone is busy in this fast-paced world. Or some may be homebound and cannot get out to the store. You provided a way to ease the stress of very little time and physical constraints. You brought the store to their phone or computer.


The person who saved time with the purchase of a product from your trustworthy site are pleased. Today they are smiling. We all know a smile can change the world and the day of each person.

When you put these all together, you now know how to make the difference. You are an essential part of a circle of people who you are striving to help each day.

How to make the difference

Do you know how to begin an online business that is trustworthy and helping to all? I know I didn’t know any of this. I did have a site, but I knew nothing about how to reach the world.

  1. After reading your history, I feel I can do the same and get where I want. I know affiliate marketing can be a little bit hard sometimes, but if you put effort and work, you can be successful. 

    Everything you said in the article is amazing, a good step by step, good advises of how to make it possible and the great community you can find at WA if you move forward.

    Thanks for sharing this.

    • Andres, Yes Wealthy Affiliate is an incredible platform. Affiliate Marketing is not hard. It does, however, take perseverance, persistence, and consistency. Then you will create an online business that will stand the test of time. 

  2. Hello Laura, this is an excellent post and I truly enjoyed reading it. So I have been a member on Wealthy Affiliate since May 27, 2018, and so far my learning experience has been unlike what I have experienced in any kind of education. I find myself naturally learning things online even if it meant YouTube videos, but the quality training that I have got to witness for myself has me without a doubt that I was meant to do great things just like you. The only limits that we have are in our imagination!

    Keep feeding the dream and watch how fast you’ll achieve all your business goals by taking consistent action!

    What you guys waiting for? 

    We’re one big family that loves to give support as result from the support we receive.

    You deserve to give yourself a chance!

    See You Inside,


    • Jose, You are so right. The support is like no other. We fuel each other to improve ourselves and make a difference. 

  3. I really like how you explained in detail what affiliate marketing is. I had no idea what is was. The step by step walk through of the complete process sounds exciting. It’s sounds like the creative outlet I have been looking for. 

    I am really looking to start a new page in my life, and have been searching for something new to try.
    This looks like a great way to create an income online.  Thank you for the information. Good job!

    • Coralie, Wealthy Affiliate is an incredible platform. It is also as you say a great way to channel our creative side. The training we receive keeps our minds sharp and helps each one of us succeed. I would love to see you on the inside. It is FREE to sign in and take a look around, take the first 10 lessons and get rolling on a business you will have for life. 

  4. It is interesting that you quit your nursing job so that you could do affiliate marketing and I know a lot of nurses find it to be very exhausting. I am glad you found something that you can do to make money instead. Do you enjoy affiliate marketing and do you think it can replace your income as a nurse in the future?

    • Jon, I retired from nursing after 40 years. There is tremendous potential in affiliate marketing. With the right training, which we find at WA the income potential will far exceed that of nursing. 

      Check it out for yourself. Just give it a try FREE to see what you think. 

  5. Thank you for showing this opportunity that can really help me work towards my financial freedom.

    Just like you, the internet fascinates me, but I have always been skeptical given to the numerous online scams all around, and not knowing which program is genuine, that can really help you.

    But I like what I read in your article, and your recommended platform to get started with.

    I am blown away that it actually allows one to sign up for free.

    I see that as a sign that they are legit, and I am willing to give them a try.


    • Then I will see you on the inside. It really is FREE but that concept is hard to believe. Seeing is believing. So sign in and give it a test drive.
