I also need to point out that this email contains some affiliate links which means that if you click on them and then go on to make a purchase, I will receive a small commission at no cost to you.

In this series of lessons for new bloggers I am going to teach you what to do, when to do it and where to do it.
I am going to show you the real-life struggles that you will face and the sheer enjoyment you can get out of blogging.
I am going to show you how you can make a living from your blog – if you work hard and do all the necessary things to make it happen.
If you have ever wondered what is affiliate marketing then you are in the right place because hopefully I’m going to explain it to you in simple terms.
Affiliate marketing simply means that you sell other people’s products or services and get paid a commission for every sale that you make.
Everything you need to know to get your blog off to a flying start, including how to install Google analytics, how to promote your blog across social media with just one click and how to get thousands more people to read your blog.
Step by step instructions and video tutorials.
This page contains affiliate links which mean that if you purchase something using these links, I will paid a small commission at no extra cost to you.
Yep, you can turn your blog into a money making machine. How great would it be to do what you love AND make money from it?
Well now you can, and I’m here to show you how. Well not me exactly, I’m nowhere near as good as the lady I’m going to introduce you to – but I’m getting much better and she is teaching me all her secrets, and she’ll teach them to you too.
Her name is Michelle and she is an affiliate marketer. This means that she promotes other people’s products and services and makes commission when someone goes on to buy any of these products or services.
She makes over $50,000 A MONTH. Blimey. Yes you read that right. No it’s not a typo. She makes $50,000 a month through affiliate marketing and she’s been teaching me and other bloggers how to do it too.
If you want to turn your blog into a business and make money even while you sleep, then you really wanna be taking this short and easy to follow (and afford) course.
Michelle goes through her exact strategies, her research and her income reports to show you how she makes her money so that you get to copy what she does and start making money from your blog much faster.
If you want to make even more money from your blog then it’s best to sell your own products or services.
If you sell your own things then you get 100% of the profits rather than the smaller percentage you get from selling someone else’s products.
I learned this before I heard about affiliate marketing so I kind of did it back to front. It’s way easier to just sell something that someone else has created and it’s quicker to make money from it too.
But, like I said, if you want to make more money from your blog then you need to create something of your own. Even Michelle has realized this, hence the course she has created above.
Of course you do, otherwise you wouldn’t still be reading. Well I have good news for you. I have found someone who will help you to do that too. I first found Stuart about 4 years ago when I was looking for help to start my first online business.
He taught me EVERYTHING i know today about working online. It was working with him that got me started in my other business, where I help new businesses to get up and running. Who knew I would be creating a whole new career for myself back then when i knew nothing.
Stuart is a millionaire, so I’m not sure how much he makes a month, but it’s a lot. A real lot.
He is, however, a very generous and giving person and has made his whole business around helping others achieve what he now has. You don’t need to want to become a millionaire, you just need to want to know how to market your goods or services to people online.
He has produced a webinar where he introduces himself and tells you more about how he can help you. So rather than keep reading this just click below and register for his webinar, you can usually watch it within the hour.
He will also give you access to his FREE video series, 7 days of valuable content you will definitely want to get hold of.

Blogging can be really difficult, especially if you are trying to make money from your blog.
Many bloggers and online influencers skip over affiliate marketing. They either think it’s too hard, that it’s a waste of time, that they will turn followers away, or that their followers just won’t be interested.
However, if you’re not earning money through affiliate marketing, then you are leaving money on the table.
