Affiliate marketing is a great way to make extra money by talking about the products you love.
Just 1 month ago, I started an online course on affiliate marketing.
Since incorporating the tactics of the course, I've made over $800 with a small following.
While that may not seem like a lot, that $800 was passive income that only required me to talk about things I love and genuinely use, and include a few links here and there.
While just starting this post, I got a notification saying that I made $10 from someone signing up for an app that I use daily to save money.
I was making money on my blog, but never from affiliate marketing. I never knew how important affiliate marketing is until a few months ago when I noticed my sister was doubling her income each month by talking about products she loved.

Affiliate marketing is often overlooked by bloggers because they either think they're wasting people's time or coming off as annoying to their readers.
This is simply not the case, as long as you are genuine and sharing things with your readers that you truly believe in.
The course, Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing, also gives you access to a private Facebook group that has helped so many bloggers strengthen their blog and money making goals.
The course currently has over 5,000 bloggers. Many bloggers say this Facebook group is the best out of the hundreds of blogging groups out there.
There are many 6 figure bloggers in the group, as well as many others that are making full-time income who are always answering questions and helping others.
This course is for anyone who
- Wants to move closer to making a full-time income off their blog

How I've made $800 in my first month
There's more to affiliate marketing than simply throwing a bunch of links on your blog. There's the legal side to it, the rules you must follow (that so many don't, and have the risk of getting in trouble), as well as how to stay genuine and true to your readers.
There are so many little things that I didn't know about affiliate marketing prior to taking this course.

On top of this, Michelle also hosts bi-weekly “Ask Michelle” days where you can ask her anything in the Facebook group. This alone is worth the price of the course because you will get to ask questions to a 7 figure blogger.
You can also see the questions and answers from other bloggers, which can be incredibly helpful, especially if you're a new blogger.

Having Michelle as a sister is SO awesome, but I'm sure you would already expect that.
She inspired me to start a blog, and there were even times when she kept me motivated when I wasn't sure where my blog was headed. Years later, I'm working full-time at home, traveling the world, and living a life I've always dreamed of having. Thanks, Michelle!
