If you are worried about falling for an affiliate marketing scam, be sure to watch this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aHY3teLOShY

I first started making money online as an affiliate marketer in 2003, over 17 years ago.

I’m living proof that it works, but I can also tell you that there are some big-time predators out there to try and scam beginners out of their hard earned money.

You can launch and build an affiliate marketing business with a tiny investment in website hosting only. From here it is all about creating great content that your audience is searching for in order to rank and drive traffic to your affiliate site.

Maybe you are wondering about the potential with affiliate marketing for beginners.

I didn’t talk about money in this video at all, can you make money as an affiliate?

Well, a little over a year ago I stared a brand new affiliate marketing case study website from zero and built it to earning over $6,000 per month within 1 year.

I documented the process and the results in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kudzqVLqrL0&list=PL0sOKzn__yK293vkj2OHzm1rlnTT1WCnh

Now, you must understand that my results were unique to me. As stated above, I have 17 years of experience as an affiliate marketer so I’m in no way saying you’ll experience these results.

This is what was possible for ME based on my energy, effort, skills, talents, etc.

Your results will be different.

That said, what it does prove is that affiliate marketing is profitable and it works in 2020 and 2021.

I have students (YouTube viewers like you) from all ages and all walks of life who are building real businesses online with affiliate marketing.

From 16 year old gamers to retired grandmothers in their 70’s… The tech is no longer overwhelming and as long as you are ready to persevere and to do the work, this can be a great business.

The biggest mistakes people make is buying into one of the scams that the fake gurus sell and then getting disheartened and giving up too soon.

This is why I made a big deal over the warning in the beginning of this video. You need to know there is an entire industry of predators trying to take advantage of you by selling you an overpriced affiliate marketing course from a high-pressure webinar.

The ‘trick’ to getting all the info you’ll ever need is to just search my name “Miles Beckler” along with your question here in YouTube or in Google.

My YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC7RZRFCrN4XKoMsy5MgJKrg has over 630 videos that will teach you everything you need in order to succeed online.

You need to bring the energy, perseverance and work ethic required to ‘do the work’ for the years it takes to build a real business online.

Work ethic is something that is not very prevalent these days… Maybe you are one of the few who will roll up your sleeves and do what it takes to grow from being a beginner affiliate marketer to a success story.

I want to hear from you if that’s you! Leave a comment and let me know you are in the 1% who will succeed no matter what!

Most people get impatient, the believe the greedy gurus that there is a ‘shortcut’ so they put thousands on a credit card and the ONLY ONE who makes money is the greedy guru.

I’ve seen it thousands of times over…

I hope you make it through the gauntlet of fake affiliate gurus and actually build a real business.

I know you can do it and my videos are here to help.

  2. Hey, Any Video or Guide on How to structure site. ( Homepage structure etc)

  3. Cool, Thanx

    Fun story. A month or so ago I was constantly getting spammed by one of those fake guru's ads to the point I decided to click it (mainly to stop seeing the annoying ad but also because it piqued my curiosity).

    I joined his 'webinar' which was set up to look like it was live with lots of other people watching. Throughout the recording he kept having fake conversations with fake audience members, the whole thing was very cringey and I was honestly embarrassed for him.

    The irony – after about an hour of fluff, he finally explained his process, which was actually a pretty decent method. However, he had completely eroded all trust with his webinar, whereas if he was just honest and to the point like Miles, I bet he would have a much, much higher conversion rate.

  7. Thanks man

  8. I hadn't thought of how to use a 'free guide/ebook' as a way to generate income on the affiliation sales within the text. Smart stuff. Why not right, you're helping the client find the thing that will serve the client best while teaching the client how to use it for best results. The client was going to buy the thing anyway, why not get a percentage of the sale. Very smart. Thankyou

  9. Bart Jan Teunisse

    'Money gun' hmm, wondering which Guru that would be 🙂 Ever since the Covid virus I have been bombarded both on my Facebook and here on Youtube by Ads like that, promising me the moon and more.

    Great content as always. I myself know how affiliate marketing works, but this is a nice, honest intro for beginners.

  10. Adalyd Gracia-Oliveras

    Following your page and 90 days blog posts challenge..I am not a native English speaker so is taking me a while. Maybe 4 blog post per week , writing. And then edit them with the pictures, etc. But I am there. Following your advice. Still need to learn to be quick in the SEO keywords search .

  11. So I can't just copy your stuff and repeat it while wearing an expensive suit standing in front of a Ferrari?

  12. Good choice on the Kangol hat, Miles. One of my fave brands. Top notch content as always.

  13. Patrick Barnett

    Hey Miles. Not exactly on topic for this video but…. Wordsteam shows an average CPC of $1.72 with a conversion rate of 9.21% across all industries. Have you found this to be accurate?

  14. Loved it Miles

  15. Sir you are a great inspiration for me u dont even monetize video for us thank u soo much love uhh❤️

  16. Hi Miles, I have two questions:

    1. Do you use your real name/personality on your affiliate site/blog? Do you use a pseudonym/pen name? Or do you just let the blog name be the "brand" name and you don't include any personal information on the blog?
    2. Is it okay to review products that you don't own, be they physical or digital (especially since in the beginning you wouldn't have the budget to be buying products)? Would you have to include a disclaimer or something that says the reviews have been put together using research online and not personal testing?

  17. Chris Cazenave

    Another awesome video! I've been watching your channel to get my firs site up and running. One thing I've been confused about and maybe I just missed that video is google search console. Many of my pages say discovered not indexed or crawled not indexed. Is this normal for a brand new site. I know it takes a while to rank, but not sure how long it takes to get your post and pages indexed.

  18. Thank you Miles, in this video i get my question answered. Thanks for the information

  19. My fb ad strat is based on your vids and works great for our digi-products. Wife and I are putting together an aff-marketing fine jewelry site (with custom fine jewelry up-sells), do you recommend google ads for that ? Thank you for all the great info MIles, God Bless you & M !

  20. I trust anyone in a Kangol.


    Thanks great info

  22. I had watched a few of your videos and got inspired to create my website where I could do some affiliate links in my niche with amazon and some other art-related businesses along with the items I make. Currently building site right now hoping to launch next week. Your videos have helped and I will continue to go back to look at others. Thanks.

  23. Shaikha AlAbry

    Beautiful back ground:)
    Keep it up bro

  24. I’m not an affiliate but the SEM tool just got a cool makeover.

  25. Miles, I just wanna compliment you for your speaking expertise – clear pronunciation & enunciation while speaking rather fast, no cuts required. Damn. As a non-native speaker, I envy that 😀

  26. Miles don't you think it is difficult for beginners to take ideas of a high difficulty niche as in your 5 min niche finder article? I also bought an online genuine course on affiliate marketing but Miles free video covered almost all the topics.

  27. One of the better (best) summary videos explaining this. Bookmarking it to keep on hand when needed. A little tip to expand on when you're collecting email leads from Facebook (or anywhere), the Thank You page after the opt-in is a great spot to highlight a targeted affiliate offer in a helpful way. If it works for the opt-in flow of course.

  28. Need some advice, got myself into a bit of a mess, I've recently lost my job working aerospace compositing, I've been working there for 5 years.. The pay was great but i never got any qualifications or useful skills to find other jobs with. I've started betting at first I was winning about £5000 in a month, now im losing. I can't seem to find any decent jobs going.. I have these big plans to start my youtube gaming channel but i lack the funds for a laptop and other equipment. What advice would you give me?

  29. Sebastian Kopalek

    Miles, I saw your video about Lead magnet… excellent! My question is, with "FB ads -> offer page", I am doing 2,5k revenue and 1k profit every day, but it's difficult to upgrade to 2k o 3k profit per day… Do you believe if I Start using Lead Manget: "FB ads -> Free Lead Magnet (one lesson free and other content) -> Thank you / offer page", you can see better results? I know everything has to be tested, but in your experience, when you use lead magnet its improves your overall ROAS? vs direct offer sales? and how much? Can you do more than 1k profit per day with some funnel like that one in any of your business?


  30. one of the few that is honest and speaks the truth – Ive been in the online trenches since 1995 – every word Miles just said is 100%T R U E!

  31. Alexandra Zmudova

    Hi Miles. I have been watching your videos for a while now. Thank you so much for all the help. How does it work with Legal rights on the blog. Do I need to have them and if yes do I need lawyer to write them for me?

  32. matthewjackson81

    Hi Miles, how much traffic would you want coming to your site before trying to monetize it with reviews as an Amazon affiliate? I'm only getting about 20 visits per day (6 months in). But I changed my SEO plugin, edited my posts and all of a sudden my Google search appearances are on the up!

  33. Doode , where you been at man, Snap I just joined an Affiliate Pg for more than I expected. Wow, u giving it away.

  34. Miles, quick question: when you re in a niche how do you make the reader know that he's reading a blog in that niche, and how do you "advertise" your blog's niche in general?

  35. Orlando Alessandrini

    I'm just trying to make 100-150 steady per day, that's all. Have a personal issue I need to take care of.

  36. Best Way To Shine

    Miles, I'm struggling. My name's Brian. I started a blog within the "blogging" niche, went the route of Pinterest/Tailwind. I have posts with low competition keywords that are 2-3k in length, but after 8 months I'm still getting 30(ish) visits per month. Yeah, PER MONTH. Maybe it's the content, maybe it's the niche, but my heart's breaking to succeed.
    I have an excellent IT career and that would be enough for most people, but for some reason God decided WE were the perfect parents to bring an autistic child into the world. He's the reason I started supplementing my income. He's going to need care his whole life. The fear of "what will happen to Noah when were gone?" was and still is my primary motivation. The biggest part of my solution is money. Not only do I need to provide him expensive therapy, I have to make sure he's financially sound so that when we pass, he'll at least have a fighting chance.

    I'm frustrated and often look up at the sky in puzzlement asking God, "what the f*ck are you doing?" because so far, he got it wrong. It crushes me.

    That said, I've tried every side hustle from teaching IT at local colleges, T-Shirt sales, retail arbitrage, dropshipping, affiliate marketing & blogging. I've settled on blogging/affiliate marketing as it seems to be the best route for my schedule. My determination is strong, but my execution is clearly sh*t. I'm going to take you at your word, watch your videos and try to make something happen. It has to happen.

    IDK why I felt the need to plaster your comment section with my sob story. I guess it's because I found you sincere and there's a decent chance you'd read this.

    Congrats on your success. You seem like a great dude.
    Diving in…

  37. Hi Miles,
    I would like to ask you one question. Since I am not a native English speaker and the country where I live has a small population, I would like to hear your advice: should I keep improving my English and work on my blog or you would recommend me something else?
    I was thinking that the only way is to outsource the content but then again it requires a bigger amount of money if I need to outsource every blog post, right? And I think that it would be nice that I write the first 10 – 20 blog posts to get a feeling of how it needs to be.

    Thanks in advance for your time to reply 🙂

  38. Hi Miles totally of the topic question. I am looking for a content writing service for SEO Agency. can you recommend some ? I need home page content and services pages content.

  39. Found your channel because I was making sure one of those "guru" ads i saw actually was a scam lol. i'm not even interested in affiliate marketing but it's good to hear that someone with experience can confirm a lot of those ads are scams, they just didn't sit right with me

  40. Hey Miles, I really Thank and Appreciate you Sir, for what you do.

  41. finally someone spoke up about these fake gurus, They will tell you to sign up for their free courses and after signing up you will realize that there is is no free course he is just there to promote his course and to show you how much successful he is and he has all the secret on how to be successful in affiliate marketing

  42. Do you think it's too late for someone to begin efforts (for the first time) in affiliate marketing with no previous experience?

  43. Thank you for your help. Do you feel it may be too late to start in this business?

  44. I have tried various methods and they don’t work ! Also this space leads to overwhelm and it’s about time honesty was introduced ? It’s a massive learning curve if you want to use affiliate marketing properly and it is not a way to make a quick buck ! There are rules and you have to commit your time … a lot !

  45. Michael Bryant

    Still not a robot. Living in my office. 15 minutes is all a man can ask? And thank you for the hours of video I've consumed.
