A myth is an exaggerated or idealized conception of a person or thing. The question some have asked about affiliate marketing is the concept of making money through Affiliate marketing a myth.
No, it is not a myth because there is so much proof of people making money, and these amounts are not exaggerated because the evidence is shown.
I have not made a lot of money as yet, but it takes time and right now, my income is low and I have not been in affiliating marketing for a year as yet.
But I can understand why some people may go away with the idea that making a sustainable monthly income from affiliate marketing is a myth.
People come into affiliate marketing after hearing that people are making a vast amount of money, and so they try and have not achieved what they thought they should; they give up and say affiliating marketing is a myth.
And some others may buy a program or a course in affiliate marketing, and they may get the information but no instruction or support on how to apply the knowledge.
Wealthy Affiliate is a platform that not only supplies the tools and information, but you are given step-by-step instruction, and there is assistance available 24/7 you can become a member of this platform for FREE.
Online business is like any other business; it takes time, work, and much effort; it is not a cakewalk, but some people are used to the 9-5 work mentality in that when you are finished your allotted time you get paid.
But as online business owners, we have to free our minds from that way of thinking and do not give up when success at meeting your set goals may be taking longer than you thought it should or you made mistakes in something on your website become frustrated. It was Thomas A. Edison who said, “ I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work”

Can you build a successful business with a free membership? I have heard of some doing so, but I would recommend the premium membership for someone who has little or no experience,.
Having been caught in so many scams, I joined the free membership, and after a couple of months, I upgraded to premium.
Affiliating marketing is not a myth. The only myth is you can get rich quickly, to be successful in Affiliate, you will have to work to establish your business. After it is established, then you will not have to work so hard.
We all have to remember that success takes time, much effort, hard work, and persistence.

As I was preparing for this post, I saw Prudential’s 2016 retirement study stating that 54% of Americans nearing retirement age have no idea how much money they will need for those 20 or 30 years after retirement.
The study also states that 54% of them nearing retirement age have only $150.000 retirement saved for retirement; this is nowhere near enough cash to live on for 20 or even 30 years of retirement.
