Fridays with Vicky 17
Have you considered affiliate marketing and are asking yourself, is affiliate marketing for me?
You find it intriguing to build websites on a topic that you enjoy and make money with it too.
Let`s see if I can give you some clarity…
Does any of these personalities remind you of you? You don`t have to be there yet, but do you see yourself there in the future?
If you do, you might want to give affiliate marketing a try.
10 Personalities That Should Consider Affiliate Marketing
Always finding a way to make things work. Affiliate marketing is not an option, it is happening. The leader takes front seat, learn, take action and adjust along the way. The leader is not afraid to ”claim” her/his site with a picture and personal about me page.
The Quiet Leader
The quiet, mystical, inspiring leader that will make wonders happens behind the scenes. The quiet leader works ”under cover” has no need for the ”fame” or front page picture of her or himself. This quiet leader makes things happen though, you might not hear about it, but she / he is the real deal.
Always kind and eager to help others. Love to build affiliate sites on topics that are not only interesting but that serves a purpose and help others. The helper has a genuine interest in helping others on a selected topic. The helper loves the comments that comes in to the site because s/he will get a chance to help even more.
The Website Builder
Love to build websites, think that the word WordPress is commonly used among all. Has a genuine interest for html, coding, CSS. Might not know all of that today but would love to learn it. The Website Builder also knows how easy it is to build a site, takes only minutes. The website builder loves to dress the site up with coding and only use WP plugins if needed.
The Google Analytics Fan
Love the numbers and analyse things before the numbers are even starting to come in. Google is not the home screen but Google Analytics is. In an online world with algorithms that is sometimes hard to understand, numbers makes sense to the Google Analytics fan.
Never backs down from a debate, love the intellectual challenge. The debater`s favorite part about affiliate marketing is to answer the comments that`s coming in on the site, it gives her a chance to debate.
Love to write, has a passion for writing. Affiliate marketing or not the writer is writing. Hopefully the writer understands the value of this trade. We pay writers lots of money for well written content doing affiliate marketing. If you`re a writer, half the battle is won with affiliate marketing.
The formula is easy;
- Well written content get ranked within Google and other search engines.
- Well written content attracts visitors to your site.
- Well written content convert visitors into subscribers, members, customers what ever you want them to do.
- Well written content makes the visitors wanting to come back.
Ready to take on new challenges, explore and dive into the unknown. If affiliate marketing is new to you this will be a fun new adventure. There will be ups and downs but the rewards can be amazing. The adventurer never backs down from a challenge.
Wants to make others feel good. With the entertainer around life is never boring. The entertainer will probably choose an affiliate site that makes others happy, that makes them laugh that makes them entertained. This is a fun person to hang around.
Is ready to make affiliate marketing happen. S/he read the ”4 hour work week” already and are just trying to figure out a way to make the new lifestyle a reality. The entrepreneur is smart and personal and likes living on the edge.
Did you find a personality that you can relate to? Or maybe you are a mix of many of them. I know I am.
What Are Your Goals and Dreams?
Another thing to consider when asking yourself ”is affiliate marketing for me” is where you are in life today or rather where do you want to be in a few years?
My dream was:
- A flexible schedule so that I could spend quality time with my kids
- To work on my own terms
- Be my own boss
- Make a living from home
This might not be what YOU want but I believe if I made my dream come true so can you. I used affiliate marketing as a tool for it to happen and you can do that as well.
Where Are You Today?
Is any of the below true for you?
College student – are you in college but the thought of a 9-5 scares the ”beep” out of you.
Drop out – you dropped out of college and now you are trying to figure out a way to create a future for yourself.
Pregnant – are you pregnant or your wife/girlfriend is and the thought of leaving the baby long hours of the day with somebody else is heartbreaking.
Parent – are you a parent that want to spend more time with your kids. Do you want to be in control of your time AND bring in some money to help with the family expenses.
Stay at home parent – are you a stay at home parent that want to spend time with your kids AND bring in some cash, to feel that you contribute financially and help out with the family expenses.
Retired – are you retired or on your way there and want to have something to do that is not only fun but also brings in some money.
Maybe you have heard about making money online and you want to find out if it is for you or not. Maybe you have always had a dream of working for yourself…
If any of this relates to you, then affiliate marketing might be your solution. Think of this…
Where Do You Want to Be in a Few Years?
If the answer is to be in control of your own time, bring in money from home and work for yourself then check out where I got started with affiliate marketing.
You can read my review of my #1 free place to learn affiliate marketing.
I believe that you have the power to choose your own lifestyle.

The way I did it was with affiliate marketing.

Hi Vicky! I loved this article and found it very inspirational. I have a combination of these personality traits, and have just recently entered the world of Affiliate Marketing. It is all new to me and does require hard work, but I’m determined to make it work for me as well. I’ll be visiting your site again ….. as it will help guide me in my new journey!
Hi Brittni Sue,
Thank you for your comment.
I think a lot of us do have a combination of some of these personalities. It`s interesting though.
Come back as often as you would like!
Great job outlining the personalities that one should consider prior to starting their career Affiliate Marketing. When I first joined it did not take me long to figure out that I needed to be a writer, Leadership piece was easy since I have been doing it for 20 years. Debater no issues, got that t-shirt as well. Helper, always considered helping other before self. The one trait that I really struggled with was website building. While surfing the net I came across this website site called Wealthy Affiliate and I never looked back. They provided the training and support I needed and I built my first website and monetized it within a few weeks FREE. Your site is a goldmine for those seeking employment as an affiliate marketer. Will socially share this post with friends.
Is affiliate Marketing for me? This part will give others hope!
Its for those who lost their job.
Those that are sick of working for someone else.
Those that need an extra pay check to help with bills.
This list can go on forever and it is safe to say that affiliate marketing is for anyone that wants to succeed and has the drive to do so. Those that think it is easy should think again.
Thanks for your comment! Sound like you have what it takes to become really successful with affiliate marketing!
The website building is the easy part with today`s technology.
I agree that Wealthy Affiliate is a great resource when it comes to learning the ins and outs of affiliate marketing. Great training but also a great community. Lots of helpful and knowledgeable people.
Anybody can do affiliate marketing, it will take hard work and time. But if you are willing to do the job, the rewards can be amazing!
Thanks for chiming in Tony!
I think I would fall into the quite leader category, since I just like to sit back and watch until things need to get done. Then I step in and take over. Great article!
That`s great. The best online marketers I have seen are the ones working in the background. They become authority in their niche and are just dominating their area. They don`t claim themselves as “gurus” or “know it all” but they are quietly dominating and have huge success.
