Hello and Welcome to the 6 Day Affiliate Marketing Course
Together we`ll be covering a lot, I have lots of exciting training to share with you. If affiliate marketing is new to you it might get a little overwhelming.
If this happens to you, if you do get overwhelmed remember that…
it`s totally normal
That is one of the reasons I created this training, to help you go through this step by step, to help you understand the basics of affiliate marketing.
The main reason though, why I created this course is because, affiliate marketing allowed me to stay home with my kids AND work from home. It allowed me to get the best of both worlds, spend most my time with my kids but also work around their schedule.
I want to help other parents do the same thing…
Don`t get me wrong I put in a lot of hours doing affiliate marketing but I can do it when my kids nap, sleep or are occupied playing or doing something else.
It`s awesome to work on a website and have your toddler do play dough at the same table.
If you are looking for a change, affiliate marketing can be it. You have to give it an honest chance though.
Decide right now that you will go through all 6 steps of this course. By doing that you will give your self an honest chance doing this.
Affiliate marketing changed my life for the better and I know if you put the work in and take action on what I`m about to show you it can change yours too.
One thing is for sure that if you DO take action on the tasks that I give you the coming days, you`ll have your own website up and running, you`ll know how to make money with the site and you`ll know how to get visitors…
That`s pretty exciting
This Is How It Will Work
I will send you a new email each day for the next 5 days. So look for a message from Vicky in your inbox.
The email will direct you to a page on my site itsvicky.com and the core information will be right there. Each day we will finish with some tasks for you to complete. For you to move forward then yes you will have to complete the tasks 🙂
We will also take advantage of a website that got me on the right track with affiliate marketing. To be honest, it was this website that gave me the training that I needed to be successful online.
It is totally FREE for a starter membership.
I have been a member of this site for 7+ years and have not only learned a ton from there but also made many friends that work with the same thing I do.
The site is…
We will be working along side with Wealthy Affiliate. This is an online training center for affiliate marketing. They offer training, tools, free website and a great community.

What Is Affiliate Marketing and How Does It Work?
After today`s lesson you`ll have a basic understanding of what affiliate marketing is and how it works. You`ll also, if you choose to, be a member of the Wealthy Affiliate (it`s totally free to join) .
This is what I do. I build websites, I get people to visit my sites, when they click on my links and purchase something from the merchant site, I get paid.
Your job as an affiliate marketer is to HELP people find what they`re looking for, help them solve their problem.
There are thousands and thousands of companies looking for people to promote their products. Target, Walmart, AT&T, Barnes and Nobles… the list goes on…
This means that you as an affiliate can pick and choose products or services you`re interested in promoting.
Let`s take a look at this picture:
Let`s Use an Example
Say my audience or target group is mothers looking for strollers.
Let me walk you through a typical visitor flow…
I would create a website about strollers. I would write my content using keywords (we`ll talk more about keywords later on). So when one of the moms type in “best stroller for baby” my website will show up in Google, in the search results.
The stroller searching mom click the link in Google and it takes her to my site, she visits my site. I provide her with good helpful content. One of the pages on my site could be a review page where I compare 5 different strollers. The mom likes one of the strollers and click the link that takes her to Amazon.com.
Over at Amazon.com she purchases the stroller and I earn a commission.
Yes, if she clicks through my link and purchase something I will get paid.
That is a likely visitor “flow” scenario.
