Is ShareASale Worth Using For Affiliates?


What is ShareASale? Is ShareASale worth using for affiliates? Meaning, those bloggers, and maybe You, who promote products made by other people for a commission.


Here is a little info and history about ShareASale. 


And below is a short video about ShareASale:



This marketer explains that she makes money with ShareASale in two ways:

  • Commissions from product sales
  • Promoting the network to others who sign up, and a portion of their % goes to the person who referred  them


Amazon is the most visible, but not the most popular affiliate site. This is because payouts and terms are too low / poor for most marketers who have weighed in on this, and many niche products have better deals and promotions being sold directly from merchant websites instead of Amazon.


Amazon kind of took itself out of the competition when it slashed commissions and really upset its affiliates. Imagine working on a successful blog for a couple of years, to have its value marked down 90%!


And there is one key point, about joining ShareASale or a similar network of retailers. Your blog. What if you don’t have one?


Can you somehow get one?


You can buy websites that some other marketer has started, and has designed them for business. Those will sell for thousands of dollars if done well. And the purchaser needs to know what to do with it! How to keep adding content and building it out.


With a small budget, you can start your own site. I started mine with a free account and got to take a close look at the training its site offered. Would you like to do that now? Click below and see what you think.





How Can I Be Approved On ShareASale Easily?


“The most reason of get declined from ShareASale is to not have a running website.” –


I read the recommendations about ShareASale by successful bloggers to see if any one of them would not recommend this network. None did not.


And every single one states that you must have a web site or video channel in order to qualify.  


The network wants to see that you have a marketing venue in place (thus the button to click on above) that has some longevity online and can draw readers to its retailers’ products.


And I would say that is fairly easy to achieve IF you have the information to follow and create your web site properly.


It’s not difficult, but there is no guessing, you need to know how to build a business blog. 


Once you have applied and been accepted by ShareASale, you can view the many products and decide on one or more that you would like to promote. Also one that fits your blog focus.


At that point you will apply to the specific retailer(s) of the products you can promote easily. So you are going to do best choosing products, or a product type, that you have interest in and can write about


A lot.


Building a blog means adding content in order to gain readership. Do you have a favorite product – household, or a hobby product – that you can’t help talking about to anyone who will listen because you love it so much?


That is an ideal choice for an affiliate product, because you won’t burn out writing about it. Your enthusiasm will be contagious, and will add energy to your informed information.


The quality of the information you provide will help a reader decide to buy that product. 

Top Affiliate Marketing Products


ShareASale helps its members by providing a data base of its retailers, and the top selling products. This is the market, and it is fluid and changing. Up to date information is vital.


How Can I Benefit From ShareASale 


Most ShareASale reviewers share my view. Be Prepared.


By that we mean, build a marketing venue – a blog or vlog (eg a YouTube channel).


Plan on a few months of work before you see revenue appearing. And then keep going! You are building a real business. It may take 3-5 years before you make a full-time income, one you can live on.


If you’ve retired are or approaching retirement, and will need more income than you expect to have, why not start learning how to blog now? Learn the ins and outs of affiliate marketing now.


You can’t know what you’re getting into without some exposure to professional online marketing training.


You haven’t bumped into the scams and get-rich-quick offers.


You haven’t seen the hundreds of “no skills needed” systems that you can view the basics of for under $20.00 and then purchase more access for hundreds of dollars.


You haven’t seen the done-for-you packages where it turns out you need a lot of training to put the package to use.


I would like to save you some time and agony by providing you with a no-cost look into a training web site where you learn how to build a marketing venue, that is yours to develop, that you will own.


Not something that is part of a system that you’re dependent on for support or updates that may never appear.


You want a business that you have control over and will grow for years to come. It will depend on you, and that’s the advantage, right?

What’s The Easiest Way To Make Money Online


When I talk about internet marketing with friends they ask me what’s the easiest way to make money online? Is it easy? It was for me because I love writing and sharing information.


But how did the making money part enter in?


Another blogger referred me to a site where I could learn all the professional requirements for a revenue earning blog and I started with a free account that gave me access to an overview of the training.


Are you ready to look at something like that? 





This is a blog post I’ve written about an easy way to make good commissions:


ClickBank Affiliate Marketing System


I won’t repeat the details about how the ClickBank system works because you can click on that and read it in full. You can also read an overview here.


What’s the easiest way to make money online at home in 2023?


Whether or not you’re a senior or disabled person working at home, or a younger person, I will mention the key benefits of earning income with a web site:

  • No age discrimination – no one can lay you off for being not young!
  • No gender discrimination, getting paid the 73 cent FEMALE dollar
  • No discrimination if you’re overweight or have medical problems (yes that happens! In hiring and lay-offs)


I wrote the article above in 2019 and I still say ClickBank digital products are the easiest to start off with. Why?


  • Best commissions to be found
  • Products can be instantly downloaded
  • Huge variety of products
  • The vendors have done the optimization for products to be found
  • ClickBank provides the popularity of the products to help you pick


Here I refer to experts on the topic of earning money with a website: 


“Zeroing in on a problem you can solve is more important than fancy logos or expensive software, says Satya Purna, a cognitive behavioral money coach and founder of Infinite Minds, LLC….

“…“The most important thing to consider is: ‘What problem can I solve?’ Then go find people who need to solve that problem…” – Satya Purna


““I would say the first thing is to create a website, as everyone wants to see a website. ” – Neha Gupta, founder of College Shortcuts


If you learn how to start a proper professional blog and begin earning ClickBank commissions after a few months, you can pay for the business costs:

  1. Domain name (get one free if you choose the pertinent membership level)
  2. Monthly membership for the training (you can choose annual for a discount)
  3. The costs of your internet service provider


You can now add products of similar categories to that blog and promote them too!


How do I earn money online for free without hard work?


I hope you’re chuckling along with me on this one. Have you ever started a new business for free and didn’t work hard? Hands up! 🙄


We’re talking about the easiest way not the easy way – because there isn’t one. It’s not difficult either, and you’re biggest initial investment is your time. If you’re retired you can put in 40-60 hours or more a week, right?


Many bloggers are working jobs and still make money from their blogs working 20 hours a week (maybe more if they have no kids, no pets, no long commute).


Speaking of no long commute, that’s one of the benefits of blogging at home. And there’s more!

  • No using up gas and continuing to wear out your car
  • No putting off medical or other self-care appointments because of the work schedule
  • Learn to grow your own veggies, grow sprouts on your countertop and grow blueberries in pots


And why would I mention any of those last things? Because they are popular topics and I will bet you can find a digital product on ClickBank about how to do those survival-ish things to write about and promote, and earn commissions from.


From my linked article above, go to ClickBank and view the marketplace. There are thousands and thousands of products to promote and earn with.


You will find one reflecting your interest and expertise gained from your hobbies or past career(s).


This will enable you to write the volume of content needed to gain visibility online. To write about 35-50 articles in a few months and start making commissions.


You can see some discipline and consistency is required, but that’s a lot easier if you love this thing, right?


And there are so many things on this earth to love! And learn more about! And share! Your readers who will make purchases are the ones who love -or are fanatics about – 

  • Woodworking
  • Fishing
  • Gardening – many categories!
  • Sports information on how to improve
  • Muscle building
  • Nutrition
  • The Law of Attraction
  • Your favorite hobby


I truly believe – have tried and succeeded – that promoting ClickBank products is the easiest way to make money online. It is the easiest way to start because of:

  • The thousands of products to pick from
  • The best commissions you’ll get from affiliate marketing


And what do you need to start? A well designed, legally set up, attractive web site.


You can learn how to make one, starting with a free account (no payment form asked for)

What Is The Best Way To Do Affiliate Marketing


I’ve had questions about what is the best way to do affiliate marketing. Different strategies work best for different bloggers, different niches (your audience for the item(s) you love to promote).


And can TurboLists help?


TurboLists purports to automate email marketing.


This marketing system caught my eye, because ten years ago I was on a successful blogger’s email list myself.


And she introduced me to a professional internet marketing training community that I got to examine, for no money asked.


A free account! If you landed here because you are looking for such an opportunity and are ready to inspect the possibilities for your internet business (real or hoped for as of yet) just click below.





“With a foundation of opted-in contact information stored in their database, marketers can send out promotional materials automatically using autoresponders—known as drip marketing. They can also segment their promotions to specific market segments” – wikipedia


What is the best way to start affiliate marketing for YOU


Bear in mind, before any system works for you, you must have a website that is attracting traffic, or readership, where folks can opt-in and to which you can send your email recipients promotional links, or informational newsletters.


From where they will make a purchase and you will get a commission for that. 


How do I make my first income in affiliate marketing?


…before any system works for you, you must have a website…


…and how do you build a website that is professionally designed, legally set up, easy to read and will bring in income from affiliate sales?


Would you be willing to spend 4-6 months developing and gaining visibility on search engines before you see any revenue? (That would be the norm but you may go faster depending on how much time you have to learn and develop).


That activity will consist of writing content and choosing the optimal words (titles, headlines) that result in your articles showing up in search engines.


SEO, or Search Engine Optimization. You can learn how to do it, and with practice you can get really good at it.


Is email marketing easy for affiliate marketing as a beginner?

It is not difficult but you have to learn how.  There are some details to understand about email marketing.


In the training I recommend, you will be walked through those step by step.

  • With classrooms on video
  • With a weekly live webinar on related elements
  • With a legacy Q&A below each class
  • With access to a live feed for your queries
  • With additional training offered by experienced members


Note, that’s after you’ve started building out your blog. 


Only then can you decide whether you want to start and monitor email campaigns.


Many successful high income bloggers only use content marketing and don’t use email marketing at all. 


How do I make a email list for affiliate products?

“Permission marketing” is another name for this method. Within your blog content, you will have a specific page where your readers can provide you their email address, giving you permission to promote to them.


This is your “opt-in” page. You will have an auto-responder set up to do various things:

  1. Sending each opted-in reader a thank you
  2. Dripping, or sending out carefully timed emails or newsletter articles to keep them interested


Professional marketers will recommend using a paid for auto responder. Those provide technical support and update support for technical and legal issues.


TurboLists offers:

  • Start today and see results in as little as 24 hours from now!


red flag…before any system works for you, you must have a website…


  • Get Facebook, Google, Twitter, Yahoo & Amazon BUILD your turbo lists for you with a 1-click!


red flag…before any system works for you, you must have a high volume of followers on social media platforms…


  • Get REAL, targeted, buyer leads that are HIGHLY ENGAGED with your offers!


red flag…before any system works for you, you must have a website…


Is TurboLists A Scam?

It could be called a scam because of this one claim: 


“TurboLists gives you the power to generate 100% FREE traffic and leads from Google, Facebook, Twitter and more”…but…


red flag…before any system works for you, you must have a high volume of followers on social media platforms…in other words, you create the followers first, then you can promote to them.

Who Can Benefit From TurboLists?


Established marketers who already have:

  • A developed web site or a few, drawing high volume readership
  • A high volume of followers on social media – thousands


Experienced email marketers could take advantage of TurboLists. They could further automate their already automated email campaigns and maybe attain better speed of responses.


They would have to take the time to test it, and compare returns, perhaps spanning over a few months.


What is the best way to do affiliate marketing for you?


Once you start building a blog, you can determine your preferences, you can get a feel for the direction you want to go in.

What Is Solo Ads Marketing Is It Worth It

laptop what is solo ads marketing

What Is Solo Ads Marketing Is It Worth It


A friend asked me what is solo ads marketing. Is it worth it? So to help them, I did some research. 


I found this on Quora, a reputable site with tons of information – about Everything.


“Solo ads are email-based advertisements you buy from other email list owners. They’re typically sent as dedicated emails – so the entire message is all about your promotion. While other businesses can make use of solo ads, they’re most popular among affiliates and information marketers.” -Sawdik Pro on Quora


I came to this topic while reviewing 1K Profit Partnership.


I’m always scouting for any system that might help a senior who wants to work from home in their retirement years, to add to their income. Also, to help disabled folks who need to work from home too.


I mean, who can live on Social Security benefits, or Social Security Disability benefits? Not that those don’t help, but you can’t pay your rent or bills with that income. You need more.


I focus on helping people who want to work online (Senior Citizens) and build a business that they can work from home, or from their RV, or in any way that can match their lifestyle.


How can solo ads help? If solo ads are email-based advertisements you buy from other email list owners, how much will you have to spend?


How do all these email list owners find each other?


And, of more concern, wouldn’t the users of the 1K Profits Partnership all be buying the same email lists? Would the recipients be deluged and simply start unsubscribing?


In reviewing the pro critique of this system, this professional marketer states right up front that you will need additional training (not provided in the package) to generate traffic to your web sitethe done-for-you site that you will need training to use.


Isn’t that a contradiction right there?


That’s a big red flag


Serious professional blogging students  take months to get good at generating traffic, meaning they compete well for visibility online.


There are different techniques and you just get better at it as you go along.


So, right here I’m going to recommend the best training.


And you can take a free look at it. A test drive, so to speak. You only need a user name and password, no payment form.




If you want more information on 1K Profits Partnership – it is a system that looks like it can help people benefit from affiliate marketing. Which is…?


Affiliate marketing is a way of making commissions on sales for products – products that you didn’t create – but products that retailers sell.


Retailers like Amazon, Target, Best Buy – many.


There are a lot! If you were to write articles reviewing:

  • Coconut oil benefits
  • Bullitt Proof Coffee
  • Prepared Food Delivery Programs/Fresh Meal Kits
  • Farm To Table/Home Grown information


…you would attract readers who are specifically interested in those types of products. Likewise,  you could focus on

  • Pet Supplies
  • Dog Supplies
  • Cat Supplies
  • Birds
  • Fish and Aquatic Pets If you look onto any retailer’s web site, you will see thousands of products!


The creator of this package says:


“What’s more, you don’t need to have experience in affiliate marketing or any online marketing to succeed. The 1K Profit Parnership will take care of it for you.”


But the presentation goes on about how you’re going to:

Collect email addresses for your marketing emails

Link them and some provided marketing emails to your auto responder

Direct your readers to a webinar selling a high ticket item (you make money here)

Keep marketing to those who don’t buy


The key to success here is getting traffic to your site in the first place.


Here’s Another Little Red Flag 

It is stated in the promo that you don’t use solo ads. Yet, inside the instructions, the preferred type of traffic generation is  – solo ads!


You pay for those.


Most people I’ve talked to about affiliate marketing online are willing to pay for training, within limits. They love the free account test drive to real instruction.


But because I’m marketing this training to senior citizens and perhaps disabled folks, I know they, or you, do not have money for buying ads.


And I must add here, that within the system I use, other pro marketers are financially successful and they:

  • Never buy adds
  • Don’t have an email list


What they do have is a well designed, friendly to read web site(s) providing information targeted to:

  1. Readers who are interested in the topic of the site
  2. Readers who are ready to buy something to do with the topic of the site


The other very important thing they have is the ability to drive traffic organically (without paying for ads) to articles designed for the interested readers, or the purchase-ready readers.


This is considered a good “user experience” (UX)  by the search engines, which results in better visibility to your site.


The other vital element for the blog creator – You – is a strong interest if not passion about the blog’s topic(s).


This element is vital because You – the creator – will need to write up to 50 blog posts, with your traffic-finding skills improving as you go, before you see commissions coming in.


You may write up to 100 posts before you have the money to hire other writers or buy ads.


I am talking about a senior with not enough retirement money, or someone who has to work from home.


A Quick Demo Of Affiliate Marketing


And here I’m going to take an affiliate marketing opportunity, to illustrate what you could be doing.


Let’s say I have readers who want to get started in making money online. They need a new computer – a good updated desk top or laptop. Yet, funds are short.


I am going to hop over to Amazon (could be  Ebay or Best Buy) and find some help. Help being, low cost refurbished computers. You don’t need to spend full price!


As an Amazon affiliate, I am obliged to disclose that I will make a commission if you make a purchase after following a link from my blog. So, I just did that. The two images below with a link, are advertising links. Here we go: 




Amazon provides those images with links. Once you have a web site set up that gets some traffic, Amazon will let you be an affiliate. And there are many more affiliate opportunities.


So to wrap up, 1K Profit Partnership may make you some money, but you will put considerable time into setting it up, and you’ll have to get through the training too.


The training I recommend will cost you a predictable monthly or annual (always saves a few dollars!) membership, the site will host your site(s) as part of the membership costs, and provide classrooms and within-the-membership training.


I don’t think I need to add more here, as you can go and see for yourself. 




Here is some information about internet marketing. 


Here is another article I wrote about the all-important traffic issue: 


Guaranteed Targeted Web Traffic


Guaranteed Targeted Visitors – Can Fitness Mojo Help?



Guaranteed Targeted Visitors – Can Fitness Mojo Help?

The success of any affiliate marketing blog is guaranteed targeted visitors – can Fitness Mojo help you with that? This software caught my attention because I love the topic of fitness in general.


Here is an interesting page about fitness culture. 


I’ve written a couple of review articles about fitness machines, which are affiliate products and help make me  money.  Fitness Mojo is described like this:


What if you could click 1 button & instantly Create A Self-Updating Affiliate Health & Fitness site?

A ready-to-earn affiliate health & fitness site with your affiliate link automatically embedded across all pages and posts
Forget about hosting, domains, freelancers, writing content, and monthly charges
Build MULTIPLE sites for more passive income
Sell additional sites to clients – Commercial License included
Get automated free traffic from Google with the auto-updating SEO module included
Never update a thing – health & fitness offers and everything else self-updates in Real Time”


I’m going to discuss a few points about this software package that promises the solution for any and all affiliate marketing challenges. Can you actually “click 1 button & instantly Create A Self-Updating Affiliate Health & Fitness site?”


The idea of a self-updating site about  anything is pure fantasy.


Ask any pro blogger who has toiled for months and even with skilled application of aiming for guaranteed targeted visitors, and knows it takes time to gain traction and “authority” with Google and other search engines.


with your affiliate link automatically embedded across all pages and posts”.


No. it turns out on close inspection, that you have to do all that manually. And, where do all those pages and posts come from?


You write them.


So right here, I’m going to cut to the chase and tell you where you can learn about affiliate links, how to write content and include your affiliate links as you go.


There is a site where you can take a look at their training, with only a user name and password. No payment method asked for, unless you decide to proceed with their classes. You simply CLICK below for your free account.




“Forget about hosting, domains, freelancers, writing content, and monthly charges”


Good luck with that! So it suggests that Fitness Mojo will host, give you a domain (, or something like that.


However, the pro domains are dot com, dot net, dot co, dot us and others. And you DO have to pay for those. btw the training I recommend offers you one free domain a real dot com, for one year, if you proceed to paid training.


Plus, this membership site includes free hosting (parking your site on their server) for several sites, depending on the level of membership you choose.


Why I ultimately chose this site for blog learning, was that you can view and review the video and text classes as many times as you like.


Learning to blog from scratch can make one feel at quite a loss in some moments. OK, speaking for myself… 🙄


Being able to view the classes at one’s own pace is a real plus, and you have a legacy of Q & A’s and discussion of other members below each class. And those are always growing!


Guaranteed targeted traffic to your blog – how?


You are the guarantor of this traffic.


With your own domain, and the right training, you will create your success. Isn’t that exciting?


Isn’t that why you want to work for yourself at home and independently steer your fate?

  • Maybe you’re doing that now but need some pro tips at increasing your revenue?
  • Maybe you are just starting to dream that you can make money with a laptop at home, or while traveling?
  • Maybe you’re daring to hope that you can control your work schedule?
  • Maybe you want to spend more time with family?
  • Maybe you want to take better care of your health?
  • Will your past work experiences or knowledge about your favorite hobby help you create and enjoy a blog? (Yes!)


Your hopes and dreams are important, especially if you need to make some money in retirement, and you want to be independent.


That’s why I want to save you the time and frustration of a “done-for-you” package like Fitness Mojo with its empty promises.


If you want to fast track the training I recommend, there are other members online 24/7 who can be very helpful.


There is a live feed where you can get questions answered very quickly. There is a live video training every week, with replays, so again, you can review a topic as much as you need.


There is a lot to learn about creating a successful blog and it can be overwhelming without a step-by-step focused approach.


Another reason why you would do best to create your own blog, rather than use Fitness Mojo, is the established fitness sites are huge, have been around for years, and are very hard to compete with for web visitors.


Your own blog can have its specific and narrowly focused audience, a niche, which seeks a particular product or service that your blog can provide.


Does that mean I have to make a product to sell? (no!)


You will write about products as an affiliate, meaning if your reader follows your affiliate link (remember how Fitness Mojo promises to automatically embeds your links? But on close inspection doesn’t?) and your reader than makes a purchase, you will be paid a commission.


Commissions vary from retailer to retailer, and you will get some good tips as to how to choose and present the products you recommend.


And you will get guaranteed targeted visitors to your blog, albeit gradually. You’ll learn how. It is an acquired skill that will start out OK, and get better and better.


I hope you’ll take a look at the site I recommend and view all that is available to help you decide about becoming a member.


I believe in you! You just have to learn how, and you can do it.





Here’s a post I wrote that became popular – it is about a digital product that pays a good commission. If it’s a topic you love to write about, you could be its marketer!

How Many Followers/Subscribers Do You Need For Affiliate Marketing To Be Profitable?

How many followers/subscribers do you need for affiliate marketing to be profitable

How many followers/subscribers do you need for affiliate marketing to be profitable?


I‘ve been asked how many followers/subscribers do you need for affiliate marketing to be profitable.


What do we mean by subscribers in regard to affiliate marketing?


Those are your readers who consent to give their email address for you to send them new posts, and other news about your topic of promotion.


The most simplistic answer to that question is,  it’s relative. 


Maybe you write articles and intend to hold out for free traffic – or organic traffic, meaning people who search for something online and you happen to have written material that offers the information they seek.


You could make a commission from the purchase of one person who buys from a retailer linked to from your blog. It might be a fairly large commission.


That commission might be double your monthly cost of maintaining a blog online, and the business portion of your internet provider costs and electric bill.


Because at some point in the business of having an affiliate marketing blog, you are going to do the math and figure all of that out.


So you have made a profit, and don’t even have one subscriber.


And truly, you don’t need any if you follow that method of building up a blog which steadily gains traction online, gets more views and you make more sales.


And to project from that, you may at some point start buying advertising.


You decide on a budget, experiment, and determine how much you can spend on ads to bring in more sales, and still profit.


You may not necessarily have any subscribers or followers at this point. I’m a “let’s keep it simple” person, so I have built up my blog visibility and made some noticeable money, without ads or subscribers.


That’s just my style.


If you’re starting off with a big budget for advertising, you can do it differently.


This blog is designed to help seniors, the disabled, or anyone who prefers to work for themselves at home.


It is intended to point you to where you can learn professional business blogging from scratch. If you’re at the From Scratch stage, here’s a little breakdown of what you’re going to learn:


  • How to get your material online, or hosted
  • How to get a domain name or “”
  • How to set up your blog legally and provide contact for any reader who wants to contact you
  • The way to write an About Me page so your readers get a sense of who you are, and come to trust you


I was lucky way back, and got a referral to a professional training site, which targets your success from the first 5 no-cost basic lessons, to hundreds of further classrooms which drill down to every strategy needed to gain readers, maybe subscribers, to your blog or YouTube channel.


You too, can take advantage of this close look at these opportunities to learn blogging, the right way. CLICK below!



How Can I Start Affiliate Marketing?


As I have outlined above, you start by getting a peek into the vast realm of writing promotional and informative material on  web site that you own.


In case I forget, I’ll mention right now that with purchase of training at this site, (the one you go to when you click on the button above)  you will get a free domain – – name for one year. At the end of that year, when you renew you will get a deeply discounted price for maintaining that domain name. 


How Many Followers Are Needed To Get A Subscriber?


You may or may not get any official followers, yet you may work up to thousands of views a month, some repeat visitors.


The training I’m recommending here walks you through the aspects of email marketing, and how you get a good list of subscribers.


Do I Need A High Ranking Blog To Get Subscribers


You definitely need a blog to get blog followers and/or subscribers.


You need to know how to develop that bog.


What do I mean by develop?


I mean writing content, a LOT of content. Which means you have to be highly interested, indeed, passionate about the topic of your blog.


Your level of interest will determine the discipline you have to exert on your consistent publishing of your content.


Your interest level or passion, with which you write your content, will be infectious to your readers.


And yet, enthusiasm for a topic will not be enough. It will go a long way to getting followers/subscribers, once they have found your site, but how do you make sure they find it?


As opposed to one of the other 100,000 blogs offering information about your topic?


The training I recommend will show you how to do that, to gain visibility and raise your ranking, or the place where the search engines place you online.


Once you gain visibility, you may get blog followers/subscribers. 


Yet, you can make many commissions a month from writing quality content about the item(s) you recommend to your readers, even if you don’t have an email list of subscribers.


Going through the professional training on an international site where you can get questions answered 24/7 from experienced bloggers, will help you gain traction with your blog.


What To Look For In Affiliate Marketer Training


  • How to attract blog readership focused on your item of interest – your Niche
  • How to do the research for that, in the time effective ways
  • How to decide on a domain name, your address online
  • Learn the easy-to-read content formatting
  • Learn how to write the best headlines for your sections and paragraphs
  • Learn to upload the images you choose to illustrate your content
  • Learn to embed YouTube videos to enhance your posts


And so much more!


I hope I’ve made you curious to look at this training.


You don’t have to give a form of payment to view it, you only need to make a user name and password.


You can view and review some real classes. You will get an idea of the training process, and you can decide to buy the monthly membership training when you’re ready.


Does $49.00 for a month sound good, for starting a business? CLICK BELOW – it’s that easy.





I hope I’ve given you some perspective on the issue of how many followers/subscribers do you need for affiliate marketing to be profitable?

Can You Write A Story Beginning With ‘What The Hell Happened

A senior friend of mine who loves to write short stories, asked me how I recover from writer’s block. I asked her “Can You Write A Story Beginning With ‘What The Hell Happened”?

If you’re  a senior or otherwise at home blogger wanting to publish either fiction or informative “how-to” kind of short e-books, you may need a writing prompt from time to time. 

Writer’s block strikes once in a while and has various causes. Here’s a description of writers block.

If you are an author of e-books, or want to be, the following button will take you to a place where you can learn how to build a blog to get guaranteed targeted visitors. You won’t have to pay to see an overview of the training and you can  study five of their  classrooms.


A few years ago I bought a software package that instructed me as to how to format an e-book to publish on Amazon. It was a learning exercise for me, but I did complete and publish an ebook. I never promoted it but have sold many copies over the years.

There are YouTube videos that will show you this too.  Here is one  I like:

If you use Word to write, this is what you need to do a proper format.

If you don’t have the Microsoft Suite, and don’t want to outlay any cash, you can download LibreOffice. Search for that, and download. 

It is a free package similar to Microsoft Office. You can create a document (e-book, manuscript) and when done, save as a Word doc.

That is another prompt to trigger your imagination, or memory, if you’re writing non-fiction. It could provoke you to remember an event from:
  • A family trip when you were a child
  • Your first field trip in elementary school
  • Your first job in high school
  • A volunteer job you did once
  • Your first year in college
  • Your first job search as an adult
  • How I make money with my hobby
To name a few. All these ideas can be fiction too, although informative non-fiction works well with short e-books.
Here is a sample of an informative e-book from Amazon: Facts About Saturated Fats
That book ad is an affiliate link, and if you were to click on it, and buy it, the author (me) would get a commission.  That could be anywhere from $ .10 to $2.00, depending on where the purchase was made. 
Say the commission averaged $1.50 and 200 were sold in a month. That’s not bad revenue for a non-fiction informational book that took two weeks to research and write.
Because you could write another one every two weeks, or once a month. At the end of the year, you could have made significant revenue to supplement your SS Income or income in general, in your retirement.
This blog focuses on helping seniors or the disabled – anyone who needs to work from home – to blog for money.
The information applies to anyone at any age who can blog or vlog (make YouTube videos which can be monetized).
If you want to see the popular categories of e-books, one place to start is ClickBank
This site has 24 categories of digital books. You can promote those as an affiliate marketer, or simply view the titles of the best sellers and see if you’d prefer to write your own. 
For example if you have had a wood working hobby, or business you can write a 20 page e-book on “how to get started”…or “simple tools to get started”… 
Other handy topics:
  • Recipes, targeted to specific types of cooking
  • Crafting 
  • Scrap booking
  • Journaling
  • Herb gardening
  • Topiary making
So what’s next? 

Start a blog to promote your e-book(s).

Do I Need Guaranteed Targeted Traffic

Yes you do, and you can learn how to get it. 

The first way you get it is to write as many articles as you can on each aspect of your chosen topic, to your chosen audience – your niche. 

About a hundred posts on a blog tells a search engine (Google, Bing, Duck-Duck-Go) that you are a serious contender for quality content, both promotional and informative.

Consistent publication also improves your visibility online. You can write whenever you’re inspired, but pick 2 days a week to publish, and stick to your schedule.

You will want to know about:
  • The aesthetic aspects of a blog (theme and blog formatting)
  • The legal aspects of blogging – required pages
  • How to provide a form of contact for your readers
  • How to get guaranteed targeted web traffic
And many more elements that will help you get ahead of your competition online.

Would Roller Skating Be Good Exercise For An Elderly Man?

Would roller skating be good exercise for an elderly man

Would Roller Skating Be Good Exercise For An Elderly Man?


A friend asked me this morning, would roller skating be good exercise for an elderly man?


Of course, it could be, but maybe not. Same goes for women or any identification of an exerciser.


Since every elderly individual – say 65 and over for the purpose of this article – is different, with a different exercise background, if any.


Every elderly man has a different medical history.


He will have a unique nutritional intake – good or bad – and his own level of strength.


Here’s a charming video showing elderly men roller skating:


What Are The Health Benefits of Roller Skating?


Roller skating is great cardio exercise. But should one risk the possibility of a broken bone for healthy lungs and heart?


And why am I talking about this on a blog about seniors learning to affiliate market online? To make money with their blog?


This page contains affiliate marketing links. We may get paid a commission on the sale of a product or service recommended here. This does not change your price, you pay what the vendor advertises.


I’m not going to abandon the topic, but in relation to working at home in retirement, to supplement your SS income or supplement your overall income, read on!


To go straight to an opportunity to view a blogger training site (no cost to get an user name and password, no payment form needed),  and to access 5 basic classrooms and a live feed chat (to get your million questions answered), CLICK BELOW.






So, back to the health benefits of roller skating…here’s the obvious list:

  • Great for metabolism and circulation
  • Circulation feeds the brain, nerves and muscles
  • Muscle strength increases reflexes and balance
  • Balance and good reflexes decrease the chance of a fall
  • Compression on bones by strong muscles increases bone density
  • High metabolism prevents insulin resistance, or stops it from getting worse
  • Such exercise promotes good sleep
  • Good sleep increases mental clarity and decreases stress
  • Pleasant social contact if you skate at a rink or meet friends to skate


You probably already realize that exercise, any exercise is more or less good for all those items above. 


If you have any medical condition you should ask your doctor “is there any reason why I shouldn’t roller skate?”.


Any doctor is going to encourage people, especially seniors, to exercise all they can, considering any specific limitations.


Is Roller Skating Safe?


You can make it safe, like any other fast moving sport.


You want good skates.


You want the right safety equipment – joint pads, a good helmet.


You want a light weight water bottle you can carry on your belt or backpack.


You want a high protein low carb snack on hand.


You want a good surface, not too bumpy.


Many would agree that you can and should skate with a pal or in a group, right?


Most would want their elderly friends/relatives to have a good phone with them when out exercising, agree?


And more, how about a solar-fueled charger for their phone, attached to their backpack or shoulder?


There is a reason I’m mentioning these safety and comfort products!


Because I’m now flipping back from the roller skating topic to the affiliate marketing products for avid roller skaters.


That’s called a niche, an audience interested in your topic.


Actually there are two reasons  – you probably scanned past my Affiliate Disclosure  in the yellow block above.


I need to have it on this page, just in case one of my readers clicks on a link to something that they might purchase. I just want them to know that if they buy through my link, I will get a commission. 


And what if this was Your Blog?


You too, could make money this way. Earning affiliate commissions from a retailer by sending them a sale.


Picture this – you’re at home in your pj’s, with a steaming or iced cup of your favorite beverage:

  1. Sitting at the picnic table in your yard
  2. Sitting at your table inside, watching the birds in your feeder
  3. Sitting at your computer work station, whatever that is 
  4. Sitting in the passenger seat of your RV while your mate drives


And what would you be doing in all these places?


Writing a blog post, just like I am now. 


OK, this is You, right?


You click over to Amazon or Target or Walmart or Ebay – to view some safety equipment for roller skating, or maybe roller blading.


You pick a couple for the best reviews, good price, return policy, appearance and other factors.


You come back to your blog and discuss these products, pros and cons, and post a LINK that the retailer provides you – just you – to track a possible sale.


And in the near future you get a commission for those sales.


Here’s a demonstration of a link to Amazon:



There are so many to choose from, I decided to pick an Amazon #1 Bestseller item. 


CLICK ON IT – and off you go to Amazon. 


So you buy the roller skates – or maybe you browse around and pick a pair that costs $299.00 – yeah! Wow my commission just took off like rocket! 😀 


And while you’re there your spouse notices you’re shopping and says “honey don’t forget that list I gave you yesterday”. 


You refer to your phone and pull up the text with the shopping list. 


Because you save your list (many shoppers do!) to order once or twice a month, it’s a long list of regular household stuff, and let’s pretend you get the new coffee grinder or power drill while you’re buying.


Then you remember your pal’s birthday is coming up – and may as well order that now, right? Along with some wrapping paper and ribbon. 


Then you recall you need a couple of new power strips for your home office along with a couple of thumb drives and a better office chair lumbar cushion. 


I know you’re tracking with me here – that commission is growing along with your order.


Now let’s get back to your affiliate marketing blog – Your Blog, and I’m the shopper. 


But I’m not the only shopper! Let’s say you had 200 hundred shoppers land on Your Blog and they all CLICK over to a retailer – and 50 of those shoppers placed orders that were not returned…The retailer is going to take 60 days to decide on your commissions. 


So 50 shoppers place larger or larger orders and you make money. 


And let’s pretend that over your

GOYERBAMATE Premium Organic Yerba Mate (Smoke Free, Pure Leaf)

tea, your friend asked you “Would roller skating be good exercise for an elderly man?”


And see how I integrated the linked product name there? And it can be integrated more evenly within the text, but I’m making a point, right?


In this post we’ve looked at roller skating and affiliate marketing, and brought them together.


Taking this one step further, what if your friends sadly relates that their doctor told them they can’t do cardio exercise for a while. Or they have sprained an ankle and are worried about turning into a grouchy couch potato while they recover.


Here is a whole other area of exercising – with great products to promote.


Slow motion high intensity training with weights – can be done sitting down, lying down, or holding onto something for balance. 


One would need weights, stretchy bands, a good thick mat and maybe a foam roller for releasing muscle tension.


There is also a fantastic at home gym-in-a-bag called Body Boss


There are many videos on YouTube showing how to use it for arms, legs, upper body, calves – it’s easy to use.


You can go at your own pace without endangering your health conditions.


See, now you have another dozen topics to write about on Your Blog.


For Your Blog you will need world class, professional designed-for-business blog training. 


Because you want those 200 shoppers to find Your Blog, not someone else’s. There is significant know-how required to make that happen.


Which can lead to hundreds and thousands of views per month, and perpetual income for you. 


I don’t need to say anything more – you can see it for yourself. CLICK BELOW.






Here’s some info about Body Boss.


Do Money Making Apps Really Work

Do Money Making Apps Really Work

After the many money making apps reviews I’ve written on this blog, my friend asked me do money making apps really work?

I think they do, for a while.

Because apps are trendy, and one soon replaces the other.

What IS An App? Check it here.

Here are three of my more popular posts about money making apps, or systems. You can scan them now or come back to them later.

What Is Clickbank University A Scam – Or Will You Make Money?


Online Money Making Scams Real – Or A Little Iffy

Serious bloggers pay little attention to apps. because they have learned how to be a serious blogger, 😀 .

I learned how to be a serious blogger by writing 300 articles on my first blog. I didn’t know what I was doing, and no, it had nothing to do with a money making app, because there were none a few years ago.

I got a no-cost access to a blog training community and started learning how to keep going with my blogging in a more professional manner.

If you click on the button below, you can do the same.




If you’ve read any of this blog, or if you scanned one or more of the above, you’ll see how I steer people to make their own online real estate plots to nurture and grow into a real business.

Because, my target audience, seniors and the disabled – people confined to their home for any reason – might get very inspired to start blogging and sharing their passions with others.

Passions meaning their favorite gardening equipment, home remedies, relationship fixing ideas, or money making ideas.

For instance, look at this one area of possible passions people write about (to make income online): Home and Garden activities and products

  • Cordless equipment – trimmers, snow blowers, chainsaws, leaf blowers, lawn mowers
  • Small garden tool totes, knee pads and tiny stools
  • Indoor gardening units for herbs, tomatoes, and salad greens
  • Indoor/outdoor potted trees
  • Garage cupboards and shelving
  • Garage floor protective mats
  • Solar-powered electric gate kits
  • House security systems – with apps that DO work!
  • Barn owl boxes for trees – to catch rodents (1 owl eats 1000 rodents a year)
  • Composters to reduce your household waste and fertilize your garden naturally
  • Organic foods
  • Chemical free clothing
  • Organic linens

That lists could be longer, and it is JUST ONE category of activities/products you can write about.

And, all those products can be connected from you to a retailer by a special link – an affiliate link – and purchases made that way will reward you with a commission. 


I understand the draw to purported money making apps.


PRO: With a few clicks you can make a website

CON: Your website will look like all the other sites made with the app


PRO: The cost is under $20.00

CON: You can spend between $200.00 – $500.00 for further access and training or have it Done For You (DFY)


PRO: You have a quick start feel-good momentum

CON: You discover there is quite a lot of training to do – or there isn’t any training to help you


Who Benefits From Money Making Apps

  1. People who have a lot of spare time to stare at their phone and share links all day
  2. Experienced marketers who can intuitively upload and use it quickly

These apps are short term money creators – but I repeat, for experienced marketers who can benefit quickly.


Making Money Making Apps – The Real Beneficiaries

The skilled app makers are definitely the real beneficiaries of these systems.

Let’s take a $12.99 app, the Seller already has a few thousand followers to promote to.

He or she sells one thousand the first day the app is launched. $12,900.00. 😯

Eventually half of those buyers apply for their money back. Seller still has $6,450.00

And Seller may have sold a few hundred $300.00 enhancements to the system. Do the math.

In the meantime, Seller is making more apps, getting the launches ready.


If you knew how to make money earning apps, you wouldn’t be reading this blog, right?

If you wanted to learn to blog for money, you likely searched with a word or phrase that landed you here.

And I want to help you get started the easiest way.

Speaking metaphorically, I want to invite you to open a door that will bring you into the foyer of a huge, 24/7 present member community.

  • You will get an introduction to the community
  • A look at the available training
  • You will make some powerful and helpful connections


And now, you’re light years away from making a little money, for a little while, with an app.

You are in an arena where you can learn how to build a real business blog.

Your blog focuses on a small market population of readers/buyers who are interested in your passion.

You now know how to write in order to attract readers and make it easy for them to buy the items needed to enjoy the activity/hobby you write about.

You know how to pick images and upload them (legally).

You know how to format your articles and share useful information without writing too much (I’m almost done here 😆 ).

You have spent $49.00 to spend one month to learn all of the above.

That, of course, depends on your time. Your learning time.

And here is a HUGE PRIZE you get for joining this member community.

You will get a DOT COM – a real dot com, not a Me@” A DOT COM is valued much more by Google and other search engines than a Me@this

And you won’t have to pay for that.

That is a real leg up to starting a professional blog. As you build your site, you are developing authority and presence online with your real DOT COM.

I used to write a lot more about the long list of benefits you get by learning real business blog building.

I think it’s a little overwhelming, vs having you get a free account to get into the foyer and look around. You will be able to view and re-view 5 basic classes, a great intro to a possibly wonderful and fulfilling blog business future.


So, DO Money Making Apps Really Work?

Yes, they do, they work as intended.

They work differently for new users and experienced marketers.

How To Make Extra Money As A Senior

How To Make Extra Money As A Senior

How To Make Extra Money As A Senior is a hot topic these days – or maybe always has been.

I work in a field that truly keeps the ongoing challenges of keeping up with inflation (impossible for most!), keeping up with rental costs (half-a$$ed rent control laws halfway help but only if you never move and aren’t forced out of “your” home).

I have just reviewed about 30 articles with recommendations about making money with your computer, at home.

They feature questions like:

  • Can I do online tutoring? (great for ex-teachers)
  • Is Drop-shipping worth it? (You don’t have to keep stock, you sell it, they ship it)
  • Can I Publish an e-book? (Yes you can! And it’s not hard to learn)
  • Can I make money with videos on YouTube? (Yes! You can)
  • Start a blog – about what? Anything you love enough to write lots of content about

Where Do Billionaires Invest When There Is High Inflation?

Yes, even billionaires are looking for handy ways to make more money – but this doesn’t concern us, does it? They are not reading this blog because it is designed for retiring or soon-to-be retiring individuals and couples who want to work from home or while traveling without the worry of running out of funds.

How Do I Make Money Online For Free Fast?

This is a common bogus idea that is a time waster to pursue. I have read that question online for over ten years. It never goes away and I have never heard of anyone discovering a way to do this. ‘Nuff said!

How Can I Make Money Online Without Selling Something?

Now we’re getting warm!

If you are not a natural and successful salesperson (sell-ice-to-Inuits type of talent) but love to talk about your favorite gadgets, hobby products, and “how-to’s” you learned in your career, you might love Affiliate Marketing.

What Is Affiliate Marketing?

This is a type of marketing where you get to write, explain, describe, RAVE about a product or line of products to a specific audience of interested people – a niche – who are looking for your information online.

And, there is a place where you can learn how this works and how to get that niche to find your blog!

Years ago I found a training community where I was able to start learning the basics of affiliate marketing, with five classes about this online business style.

I did not have to pay anything to get a look at the training and income earning potential, and how the support from this community could help one learn.

You can do this too: CLICK below.


This is serious business training that with enthusiasm and consistent work and correct application, will earn you income.

This is not “EASY Money”. When have you ever made Easy Money?

I won $100.00 with the lottery once –  no future in it though!

I really want to help seniors who have probably followed this working-life path.

I’m not going to say “career path” because many of us who thought they were going to have a career (traditionally a job with one company including health benefits, bonuses, pension plan et al)  – not just a job – got blind-sided by these wealth-sucking events:

  • Divorce
  • Business moved off shore
  • Illness (yours or a family member’s)
  • Real estate investments or home got taken by bank corruption and ensuing freefall events

And there went your retirement plans!

Or, maybe you worked so hard for so long that you never made any retirement plans!

I must say I resent the common phrases of describing those who are retiring comfortably as people who “worked with fiscal discipline and intelligent strategies”. Really?

As though the rest of us had no discipline or wasted money we could have spent on retirement strategies.

Sadly, the facts are that the biggest maybe-once-greatest developed country has contrived to eliminate decent labor laws, or allow for work-arounds, has contrived to allow run-away-train rent increases while suppressing affordable housing development, and has contrived to bankrupt people and take their assets just for getting ill.

I guess that was a bit of a rant…and a bit dark…so let me get to the good stuff!

How Can Senior People Earn Money In Their Old Ages?

All the researchers I reviewed today agree that there are two best ways:

  1. Start a blog
  2. Start a YouTube channel

Since I am a writer I will focus here on the blog for business via affiliate marketing path.

I will also provide information about making money with YouTube further below.

There are technical aspects to succeeding with a blog.

Knowing code is no longer required.

Finding a host to support an easy-to-build WordPress blog is a must.

Learning HOW to build the blog on WordPress is a must, because you want a good visual appearance and a professional (including legal) presence.

Learning how to help your audience – that niche who wants the information you’re going to provide – find you online.

Learning how to schedule your training and writing time so you can publish quality content consistently, without burning out.

This schedule is yours to choose – and depends on whether you are retired, or still working full time or part time.

After your first free classes, you will have the option to begin your professional training at $49.00 a month.

For this you get access to a huge and long-lived affiliate marketer training community. The classes are methodical going through the basics of blog building and enhancing your site in the ways that will allow you to supplement your social security income.

This $49.00 investment also includes one dotcom, “”, a professional website address. 

And for some, your blog may eventually make you more money than you have ever made.

Blog success takes time. There is no “overnight” or “instant”. And you want to stay real about this, right?

And I would judge by the million PLUS users of this training site, that most of the members stick with it and become earners online.
