What is Affilorama?

Affilorama is a website that teaches people how to get started in affiliate marketing.  It was started by Mark Ling in 2006. When he created Affilorama, he had a dream of having 100+ video lessons designed to help beginner to intermediate affiliates build successful websites, just like how he does. But he didn't become successful in affiliate marketing right away.

 He was once a broke college student. Looking for a better way to earn money, he found affiliate marketing. He became successful in it and made good money in it. But because of Google, his income plummeted. As a result, he ended up going massively into debt. He then had to get a 9-5 job.

A 9-5 job wasn't the lifestyle he wanted. Mark Ling decided to give affiliate marketing one more try. He changed his strategies, worked hard, and now is living the lifestyle he wants thanks to affiliate marketing. To help others live the lifestyle they want he created Affilorama.

I love Affilorama because you can get over 100 video lessons absolutely free. It's not a free trial either. You can keep the free membership as long as you want. I have had mine for years.

Her Paper Route

Chelsea from The blog Her Paper Route has created a detailed affiliate marketing guide. In her guide, you will learn how to build an affiliate marketing website, how to find and join affiliate programs, and more. 

I love that she explains the different types of affiliate marketing websites. Examples would be price comparison sites, personal blogs, authority sites. She gives tips on how she gets people to sign up for affiliate products. 


I love Pinterest for many reasons. One of them being all the free information, tips, and resources pinned to the site. All you have to do is type in affiliate marketing, affiliate marketing tips, how to get affiliate marketing free. All sorts of affiliate marketing information will pop up. I recommend Pinterest over Google for a few reasons.

I feel the blog posts, articles, and resources on Pinterest are more specific. You see all the results on one page. Versus searching page after page on Google. If you wanted to take a paid affiliate marketing training course you can easily find one on Pinterest.
