Hi there! Thanks for stopping by my blog.
My name is Eartha and I am an internet marketer, foodie, cat lover, and I’m doing my best to become more aware.
What you will find here are mostly topics on making money online through affiliate marketing and selling physical goods online using the dropshipping model.
You can expect almost daily posts from me. I say “almost” because unless there is something else going on, I like to blog!
It is my mission to provide information on my blog(s) to help anyone who desires to start their own online business and escape the 9-to-5 (if it is their goal to do so.)
The online businesses I focus on most are:
- Affiliate Marketing
However, I enjoy learning about all types of methods to earn income online.
I prefer online income as opposed to brick-and-mortar type of businesses because online businesses can provide lifestyle freedom.
That means you can run your business from anywhere with an internet connection as well as working when you want and how you want.
I was a web developer for many years. After being laid off from my last web job, I decided that I was done doing web work for other people. It was never a fulfilling job for me but it served its purpose at the time.
Now I focus on the creation of niche websites which are monetized using affiliate marketing. Affiliate marketing is simply the promotion of other company’s products and/or services.
When a sale is made, you earn a commission as demonstrated in the flowchart below:
I discovered affiliate marketing many years ago when I interviewed for a job at a company that made their money from selling a make money online ebook.
After the interview, I did a lot of research and started building websites. I have made money online over the years but not at the level that I desire.
I became comfortable in my 9-to-5 jobs and stopped putting effort into growing my online business.
My goal is to have lifestyle freedom which is being able to work when I want, how I want, and from where I want. No bosses, no clients, and no customer service. Affiliate marketing can provide this freedom!
I don’t consider myself new to affiliate marketing, as I continue to make affiliate commissions from other products I promote. However, I’ve never taken the time to create a true online business.
Below is a recent screenshot of my commissions from one product that I promote:
I am finally taking the steps necessary to create a business that will provide the lifestyle freedom that I desire for myself and my family.
The first step was to realize that I couldn’t continue to do the same things I had always done with affiliate marketing.
I knew I needed to educate myself. I had tried various products over the years that claimed to have the answer to making a living online.
Most were scams and total wastes of money. I had come across Wealthy Affiliate during my research but never gave it a chance due to being skeptical about other products I tried.
Thankfully, I did give Wealthy Affiliate a shot and it was the best business decision I have ever made. What I’ve learned there changed the way I run my online business.
Like anything you pursue in life, you have to have the knowledge and develop the skills to succeed. I no longer feel lost or like I’m spinning my wheels when it comes to affiliate marketing.
I am now creating a solid foundation for my online business that I never had before. My goal of lifestyle freedom also includes helping anyone else who wants to achieve the same thing.
That is what this blog is truly about. I want to help you and learn just as much from you as you do from me.
