Hi Jerry! This is a really well written FAQ on affiliate marketing. I actually learned a thing or two and that part where you mentioned best traffic source as very effective!

Just wanted to get your opinion on something – I was just reading this review of the affiliate marketing course over at and the guy reviewing this course mentions a weird trick to earn lots of bucks.

Would love to know what you think about it and what you think about the course in review..are you familiar with it? Thanks! Can’t wait to hear your reply as I’m thinking about buying the course he recommends.

    Jerry Huang - June 18, 2018

    Hi Sifran,

    Glad my FAQ helps.

    As for the review you were referring to, I’m not sure what’s the “weird trick” you’re talking about. But keep in mind that such tricks don’t exist. Be careful!

    Making money online is not that easy and there’s no push button solution for that. You have to put in real time and hard work.

    Affilorama is a legit program offering good training to help you get started with affiliate marketing.

    You can definitely go ahead and test it out if you’re interested. But I’ve reviewed it myself here:

    It’s definitely a good program but it’s not my top recommendation as you can see in my review. Let me know what you think 🙂

Glen - May 3, 2017

Jerry, well done and very informative! By all means, provide more answers. Some of the answers should lead to full blown articles.

Another question is “What is a good niche? And how do I find it?”

    Jerry Huang - May 3, 2017

    Hey Glen,
    Definitely, that’s a good question which is commonly asked. I’ll add it into the list soon.

    Also, that’s a great suggestion of leading each question to a separate full article for more info.

Rina - May 3, 2017

Thanks for providing this great list of FAQs regarding Affiliate Marketing. When I first started out with my affiliate marketing business, I was completely green and had no clue. So this is great for people who are new and looking for some answers or clarity about Affiliate Marketing. Lastly, if anyone reading this is considering affiliate marketing, I highly recommend it 🙂

    Jerry Huang - May 3, 2017

    Hi Rina,
    I also had those days which I had a lot of questions and had no clues. I wish there was a page like this where the important information about Affiliate Marketing is all compiled together. That’s why I’m creating this page right now to help those who are just starting out.

    Finally, thanks for your kind words and thanks for recommending Affiliate Marketing:)
