    Hello Nikos this is a very in depth post I found on the truths and myths of making money online.

    I procrastinated a lot, it happens for many reasons. But having no one to turn to and overwhelm are in my opinion the biggest obstacles.

    After that its all (easier said than done of cousre) down to working hard and determination.

    Hei Niko,
    Really great post with a lot of useful information.
    Many people start these sort of things with great expectations of unbelievable wealth and time freedom, but one of the most important lessons anyone could learn is that neither of these come without great sacrifice and a lot of work.
    Put in the hard yards, treat your endeavour as a business and stick at it and only then can you expect the rewards.
    Keep up the good work.

    Fantastic article. I was searching the web on how I could really make money online I came across your article, and glad I did. I was one of those who fell for one of those get rich quick scams and all the research I was starting to feel that you can’t really make money on line. After reading your article It sparked a new hope that maybe I can and clicked on Your build your own online business for free after reading it and seeing all you can do and get I was blown away.

    Great article. Its nice to know that you can still make money online even if you don’t have any experience or are not a computer whizz.

    It makes a lot of sense that you obviously have to put in the work in order to make money online. There are a lot of scams out there, and many people think that making money online is an overnight thing, but it takes lots of time, testing and patience.

    If you don’t have that determination to keep going even when the going gets tough, I think it is better to find yourself a day job.

      Hello Julienne,

      The answer to your question is yes. You can make money online without investing money but you have to invest time. You also need to learn what works and what doesn’t work because otherwise you will get lost. If you are just looking for ways to make money online (not only as an affiliate marketer) take a look at this post.

      As for affiliate marketing i believe is something you can learn on your own by practising but it is always better to spend some money on an affiliate course. You will see results faster (that also depends on your own skills). There are a lot of information online about everything that has to do with affiliate marketing but chances are you won’t know what to look for. Here are 10 affiliate marketing strategies that can help you. They worked for me and i believe they can help you too. And they won’t cost you anything. 

      Hope that helps.

      Hello Ropata,

      There are thousands of affiliate programs. All you have to do is google “your niche+affiliate programs” and you will find plenty of products and services to promote. There are affiliate programs for almost every niche you can think of.

    Hi Nikos 

    The information in this post is really thorough and includes everything someone needs to research affiliate marketing. 

    I’ve just started learning about funnels and I think I’ve got my head around it but I will be reading through your links to gain more knowledge.

    Can you reccomend a good company to set a funnel system up with ? 

    • Nikos says:

      Hello Darren,

      If you mean an autoresponder you could try Aweber,Constant Contact, Drip. But you don’t really need to spend money on some software to create a good funnel. You can do that by creating great content that will guide your visitors where you want them to go and do what you want them to do. Buy something, sign-up, etc.

    Hi Nikos and thanks for putting your knowledge into words. You have a relaxed way of writing and it makes the subject matter easier to take in. I certainly can see that I have much to change to make a financial success of my website but unfortunately something is missing. I put it down to my age! 

    As you rightly say, you have to put the work in and I consider that I do just that. Trouble is, after doing all my research on such an extensive subject, I seem to be lacking in energy to do the nitty gritty, ie. getting it out there to the masses.

    I would be very interested to learn which of your points for being successful, works best for you. Is it the quantity of people you reach or is it the quality of your posts, which are obviously good. I really need a path to follow. My posts are well researched and done for the public good but I can’t seem to go any further. You first sentence is something I worry about. I don’t want my readers to think I’m doing what I do to gain wealth, because it’s not true.

      Hello Ches,

      Both quality and quantity matters. But at the end of the day i believe quality matters the most. A high-quality post has more chances to rank, attract backlinks and go viral on the social media.So, in my opinion instead of writing 5 mediocre blog posts it is better to write one good one. But even more important than that is to keep publishing content. Affiliate marketing is all about content. 

      Promoting products/services is not a bad thing as long as they can help your audience. Don’t try to sell, try to help. People are looking online for information, solutions and answers. If you can offer them a good quality product that can help them solve a problem they are facing they won’t matter.
