Many believe that you have to be in a helping profession like the medical field to change lives, which just isn’t true. Tons of professions change the lives of others, because it’s is all about how you approach your work. Let’s talk about how an affiliate marketing business can make a difference

My Story

I retired from ER nursing a couple of years ago, needless to say, I didn’t want to stop being a nurse, but it was time. Shift work was affecting my sleep, consequently my health was failing.

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

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

Affiliate Marketers Place In The Circle

So I set out to learn about this enticing world of the internet. Let me tell you, the learning curve was a bit tough at first, but the more I learned, the more intrigued and satisfied I felt. When someone had a problem, I was right there with the solution to help them, which meant I was making a difference in the lives of so many.

I realized that I had become an integral part of a big circle, and “how to make a difference” became more evident each day. See, affiliate marketing is a circle, and I was a link in that circle, not to mention if I stopped my part, I broke the circle. I also found that so many people want to change their lives and don’t know how to accomplish it.

Vast Knowledge

With the knowledge I gained over the past few years, I can now teach others to set up an affiliate marketing business. I have moved past my learning curve into a new realm of making a difference.

My world moved past 12-hour shifts with no sleep and no food to a vast population of people who needed my help. Teaching was my love, and I realized I could teach others. I can make a difference in the world, but I can also make a difference in individual lives.

Let me explain what affiliate marketing is then I will help put some perspective on how an affiliate marketing can help so many more than we realize.

How To Make A Difference

You are making a difference everyday with your affiliate marketing business. Not only in your life but the consumer and affiliate also.

  • The consumer goes to the internet searching for a solution to their problem, ultimately, their life was impacted with a article with the answer or product they needed.
  • A person who makes an online purchase has built trust which, resulted in a peace of mind.

  • More control over your time

Everyone is busy in this fast-paced world, especially with the recent COVID pandemic, additionally many shopped online with the homebound status. And after these difficult 2 years when life is becoming a new normal again, many will continue their online shopping.

  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!

  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.
