Have you been looking for a business that you can start without paying any money and without buying any product?
So many people would like to start a business but the problem is; there are very few businesses which would allow you to start without paying any money upfront.
At one point in my entrepreneurship journey, that is the position l was in; not being able to start a meaningful business because l had no money which l could risk on something l was not sure whether it would work as well as not knowing whether it was a scam.
Luckily enough, you do not have to suffer like l did. Eventually l found a legitimate company that would allow you to start your business for free. This gives you the chance to find out whether it is the right business for you.
The business is in Affiliate Marketing and the company offering the training is called Wealthy Affiliate
What’s Affiliate Marketing and How Does it Work?
Affiliate Marketing is a business where you promote other companies’ products without buying or creating them, delivering, or dealing with any customer related issues like their payments or their queries.
Not buying and handling the products means that you do not need storage space, neither do you need an office.
This gives you the freedom to do your business from anywhere as far as you a mobile phone or a laptop and internet connection
For you to succeed in Affiliate Marketing you need to learn how to start and run an online business.
Wealthy Affiliate will teach you step by step on how to start and run an online business in whatever niche you in. What is required of you is to implement what you learn into your business as you go along.
Doing it that way means that the more knowledge and strategies you acquire, the more your business grows and that means you could see yourself earning money within no time.
The training offered by Wealthy Affiliate includes the following:
1. Selecting a Niche.

Ones you have decided on the product, the next thing is to look for Merchants who have Affiliate program with your chosen product. Amazon is one of the companies with Affiliate Programs with almost any product you can think of.
After identifying a program, the next thing is to sign up for the program. The company you sign up with will give you a link which you will place on your website, and when customers click on the link, they will be redirected to the Merchants website from where they buy the products.
