Affiliate Marketing For Dummies

This week’s adventure requires more work than normal but the payout is wayyyyy more than normal so it is kinda worth it if you get the leads you need. Affiliate marketing is a new way to earn money while promoting your favorite brands or websites. I have so many affiliate links it would make your head spin. You might even notice them all over my website and in each of my blog posts!

So what the hell is affiliate marketing? you ask. When you look up the definition it will tell you this:

affiliate marketing

In Layman’s terms it is basically sharing a link for something you like and don’t mind promoting and if anyone clicks this link and buys the product or service then you make a commission for referring them to use it! It is so easy and doesn’t take too much effort if you learn the right ways to do things. You can put more work into these things and certain websites will walk you through it, but I am only giving the Cliff’s notes version and simplifying it for you.

If you have a blog or a website like I do then affiliate marketing is for you. If you have a lot of social media followers it could work in your favor also. There are different ways to be an affiliate marketer. There are pre-made graphics and links to post or send to people or you can have a banner or square advertisement on your website. If you look at the different blog posts and pages on my website you will see a lot of examples of affiliate marketing and the only thing I have done to use these graphics and links is apply and then copy and paste once I’m approved to participate in their program.

I will be uploading videos where I walk you through step by step on how to use these graphics and links to earn you some extra money! Make sure you are subscribed to my YouTube channel to see them and get notified of all new uploads.

Example of an affiliate marketing link is below!

Surveys that pay

This week I want to tell you about my favorite thing to do to make money from home!! I get paid in gift cards and cash for taking surveys. I know there are a lot of websites all over the internet talking about they will pay you if you answer surveys and then they take you to endless questions and try making you complete offers where you have to pay them. I’ve had my fair share of wasting my time on these websites and I have learned and found some really great sites.

I can’t tell you how many survey sites I am signed up to. However, I don’t participate in every site that I’m signed up with when it comes to surveys. Sometimes they just don’t give you enough points, cents, dollars or whatever the incentive is for the time it takes to answer the questions. I’ve found some where it would take you all year to rack up enough points or whatever to redeem for a prize. Lucky for you I have done all the hard work for you and I have searched and tested different sites and found the ones that actually pay and that are actually worth your time doing.


Some of these websites give you a referral link to invite your friends and they offer extra points or a little cash in your account when someone signs up and completes surveys. Some of the links you will be clicking on are my referral links so I may get a reward for referring you to them.

That’s all for this week. Some of these sites may stop taking members so make sure you pay attention to the page when you go to it! I hope you have fun and enjoy all your money making surveys and you get selected for some awesome trials and find new products that you never would have thought to try. See you in next week’s adventures!
