And as a fact, there are those websites run by people who only want your money and give little or nothing in return.

Phony Marketers

These phony marketers set up courses which are usually offered through eBooks, DVDs, CDC

However, when the information or item is actually delivered, it’s usually a rehash of something that can be easily added online.

The program doesn’t provide you with a solid foundation on content creation, and content creation just so happens to be one of the core principles of Affiliate Marketing.

And these phony marketers offer no instruction for someone who is relatively new to online marketing, it is as if they were expecting you to already have some knowledge of affiliate marketing.

Is Affiliate Marketing A Myth? —— Financial Independence

Is Affiliating Marketing a myth?

A myth is an exaggerated or idealized conception of a person or thing. So the question that is been asked by some 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 proof is shown.

I have not made a lot of money as yet but it takes time and right now my income at the moment 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 there are people making a vast amount of money and so they try and having not achieving 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 information.

Wealthy Affiliate is a platform that not only supply the tools and information but you are given step by step instruction and there is assistance available 24/7 and 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 cake walk, 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 mind from that way of thinking and do not give up when success at meeting your set goals maybe taking longer than you thought it should or you made mistakes in something on your website.andyoube  come frustrated.  It was Thomas A. Edison who said “ I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work”

How to Earn Extra Income After Retirement —-Financial Independence

Retirement Concerns

As I was preparing for this post I saw a report by 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 has only $150.000 retirement saved for retirement this is nowhere near enough cash to live on for 20 or even 30 years of retirement.

As life expectancy increases is has become more important than ever that we have a financial backup plan that will aid in supplying added fund to our retirement income.

As a retired boomer myself I know the concerns of the rising cost of healthcare and as we age medical issues tend to be more frequent and these issues are largely unavoidable.

An estimated 70% of seniors will need long-term care in their lifetime, and the thought of this is causing valid concerns in the boomer’s generations.

And this is where a part-time income can help in improving your retirement savings.

There are many things you can do in retirement to earn some added cash, your many years of hard work and experience, no matter what field you spent them in, can still be valuable once you retire.

But now instead of working for someone you will be working for yourself, you will be your own boss.

You can turn your hobbies into a business, or something you are passionate about.

You can pass on the knowledge you have gained over the years you have spent working to others, and you can do this by making training videos and blogging about it, you will also be able to advertise for companies that are selling things in your niche, making it more profitable. If that is something you would like to try you can be taught how by joining Wealthy Affiliate for FREE.

I have listed some Ideas that would help you generate some additional income working online.

Advertising on your website by Google

If you have visited any website, you have seen Google ads. These ads are everywhere, they are easy to set up on any basic website,  and at Wealthy Affiliate, they will go through the process of setting ad sense step by step to your website these add can be lucrative once your website starts bringing in a steady amount of traffic. Google will track your page views, traffic, and earnings on your behalf. There is no upkeep or maintenance to get this thing going, which makes it a profitable venture if you have a website already.

Most of the opportunities to earn online require a website at Wealthy Affiliate you can have one built in 30 seconds and it will be a beautiful looking, mobile, and revenue ready website. with State of the art, ultra powerful and secure hosting.

Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate marketing is one of the most popular ways people make money online. It is a strategy where an individual partners with a business in order to make a commission by referring readers or visitors to a business’s particular product or service.

You will be given a link to put in your post on your website by the company whose goods you are promoting. From there, you’ll make money any time someone buys a product or service through your link. It would be best to promote the products pertaining to your website.

There are also affiliate network like ShareAsales and others these networks have many affiliates in one place.

Online Tutor

If you have any skill you can teach others, it’s also possible to set up an online course you can market online. Or if you would like you can offer your services to tutor individuals online, that can also be done. You can blog about your services and get customers that way too.

There are many subjects that can be taught online from cooking to marketing or even freelance writing.

E Book Sales

You can write and publish your own e-book,  You can write an e-book for many things, you can write for entertainment. Or education you can publish your e-book many places but Amazon is a very popular site for publishing e books. And they can be sold on Amazon too.

Freelance Writing

If you have writing skills and creative talent, it’s also possible to get paid to create online content.

There are bloggers who are willing to pay someone to write their content for them, and there are different places that you can advertise your skill, like Fiver or are by just networking with people who may hire you, and delivering high-quality content 100 percent of the time will keep you very busy.

I have mentioned just a few of the ways’ money can be earned online, If you do not already have a website and even if you do and would like the best training there is I am inviting you to become a member of Wealthy Affiliate,

Wealthy Affiliate is for every online marketer whether you are spanking new, or have some knowledge of you are a super affiliate Wealthy Affiliate is for you and you can become a member for free

Earning extra income is not just for boomers alone but it is for everybody, the stay at home parent, the college student who wants to earn extra to pay tuition, or the soon to be retired who is concerned how the cost of living will affect than with a cut in their income.

I would encourage you not to look at the glittering objects like some adds saying you can earn $500.00 per day at the start (not true scam alert) In time yes you will be able to earn that and more but it takes time. Patience, and much effort.

At Wealthy Affiliate there are two levels of membership there is the free membership and the premium membership, the free membership never expires, but there are a lot more information and tools and available in the premium membership.

With the free membership you will get 10 lessons from the Online Entrepreneur Course

and at the end of these 10 lessons you will have a beautiful website ready for your great content and open for business.

I do recommend you upgrade to premium, this membership has so much more to offer  as you can see from the list of what’s been offered in both membership.

At Wealthy Affiliate, you have a company, a company that teaches today’s online marketing, company with a vision to genuinely help people achieve success in business and in life.

A company dedicated to helping others become great and achieve true financial independence. You will be learning from the very best in the business

And the price for the premium upgrade is very reasonable its $49.00 per month and if you upgrade within 7 days of joining as a free member you will get the first month for only $19.00 you can also choose to pay by yearly and that would be  $234.00 and yearly would be $359.00


There are a number of ways to make money online and I have just listed a few It is very important to have a website up and running. Remember  Success is no accident, it is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all a love for what you are doing.

With this in mind, the possibility for you to be able to build an online income stream — or several — if you give it enough time is good.

But, don’t just take my word for it. Try it for free you have nothing to lose and everything to gain

One day you could even create a success story of your own. But you’ll never know unless you try. And you can for free. If it’s not for you-you would have lost nothing.
