How Affiliate Marketing Changed My Life!

True Story! This Actually Happened!

Hi Guys, My name is Alex Chivers, I am from the UK and I started blogging around about 12 years ago (kind of). Since then I have stopped, wrote the odd blog here and there. Stopped and started again but most recently I started blogging again full time in December 2019.

When I look back my early blogs were pretty rubbish I am not going to lie but this definitely gave me the desire to come back one day!

So I stopped I mentioned that part. I started an eBay business in 2011 (I still have this) but back in 2019, I was in trouble! 😧

I got involved in something that was really starting to impact my finances. A business partnership on the side that was quickly falling apart.

That month I had a long hard think about what I was going to do next and I come to the conclusion that I would start blogging again and do affiliate marketing!

It was New Years Eve 2019 when I actually first got to work again after years away from blogging. I stayed in because basically, I didn’t want to spend any money that night. At this stage, I was basically pulling my hair out. I had my own eBay business to support, my partnership where I was pretty much being screwed over left right and centre, and I had a flight to Dublin booked for 3 weeks time which I had paid for back in October.

For that next week, I wrote, and I wrote one blog after another. It must have been even longer before I realized but here is what happened after only one week. What I am about to show you is my earnings from my first month doing affiliate marketing…

My first affiliate commissions

Yeah, it’s not much I’m not trying to bullshit you here but still After only 7 days of blogging again, and on my 1st attempt at affiliate marketing I made $191.78. Basically in my 1st week…

So, I say Affiliate Marketing Changed My Life! because I made $448.23 in this first month and this was enough to convince me to end my Toxic Business Partnership. Resurrect my eBay Business and Yes I did get to go to Dublin!

Ever since then, I have been making money doing what I love, and that is writing!

If you would like to know how you can do the same I will show you!


You Can Do Exactly What I Did!

Make a website just like mine iBusinessToday.com

This is a project very dear to my heart.

In some ways, it has kind of become a diary of sorts where I can share my newfound knowledge and research into various different products.

A lot of the training I’ve taken and the different things I’ve learned about I’ve used this blog to write about my experiences.

Now, I don’t want to carry on about me, me, me!

Here are some of the posts I’ve written that just might be able to help you!

Now, most things I’ve learnt I’ve shared here so far, and I really hope that I can help you too.

I am so far loving this website, blogging and affiliate marketing and I hope you will as well.Β

Now, About iBusinesstoday.com – In Short


For anyone reading this, my idea for the creation of this website was initially just to promote MMO (Make Money Online) products as an affiliate. I still intend to publish a few posts like this (not going to lie) but after a year another goal of mine with this website is to help others break into the business of blogging, building websites, and themselves promoting various different products as an affiliate.

My inspiration I would have to say is the platform where this website is hosted called Wealthy Affiliate.

By using Wealthy Affiliate I have found the perfect base of operations. Before trying this program I tried Wix, Shopify, and all sorts of other things to build up an online business. None successfully. Blogger, I had some success with but it wasn’t till I took the Wealthy Affiliate OEC (Online Entrepreneur Certification) that I was able to properly develop my first WordPress website. It has since then been one commission after another.

Now, Wealthy Affiliate is by no means perfect. It teaches the important fundamental things and for that, I highly recommend but MAKE sure you have someone good to mentor you about what to do in the very beginning. There are more knowledgeable members that can coach you better than me you can be certain about that but you can also do a lot worse. I don’t mean to blow my own trumpet 🎺 but please take a look around and see what you think?


More About Me (Sorry!) and iBusinesstoday.com


Alex Chivers Owner of iBusinessToday.com

I will keep this short. To find out more about me check out my about me page, but just a few words quickly. 

I am 35 years old and was born in 1986 at a hospital in Stevenage Hertfordshire (UK). 

I’ve always been interested in reading and writing since an early age. The first blog I published was back in 2009. 

It was mostly about my own personal interests. I didn’t get much attention from it, but It was good practice.

However, I would say I never really properly learned about how to build a website and write a successful blog until I joined Wealthy Affiliate. It certainly has its haters but for me, I was very thankful for its early lessons.

I am still a member today and its community has certainly got me out of some difficult situations. It’s not perfect but this was 100% what led to the creation of this website so I will be forever grateful.


Now Aside From This


My vision is to create a website that can help you build a successful blog. It is very hard work. If you’ve ever thought about writing a book that should be easy if compared. But don’t let this put you off this is one of the most lucrative businesses that you could ever have.

Just a few simple decisions and you can really do this. All you need to start is to have an idea. What is your website going to be about?

Choose a hobby, something you are passionate about and do a days research about related products and see what other websites are doing.

Then simply you just need to choose a domain name that is available. Pick out one that a few years down the line could be a name that many people know.

You want a good name and when you have it choose a service to host your website. Bluehost, and Siteground are very popular but the easiest way to do this and everything you need to do after is by following the training in Wealthy Affiliates Free Beginners Course.

Join me on Wealthy Affiliate and I will make sure it is worth every penny you spend ❀

I am dead serious and I am not just saying this because of the financial incentive.

Here is another alternative if you would rather look elsewhere.


Bottom Line


Statistics show that as of 2021 people spend an estimated $12 Billion USD on products advertised through affiliate marketing.

Undoubtedly it MUST be a whole lot more than this if you count things like independent affiliate programs.

AND THIS is only one way that you can make money through your own blog/website.

You also have advertising, e-commerce, your own services (course, ebooks etc.)

What’s more, EVERYTHING is done digitally!

You can work from anywhere and all you will need is a PC/Laptop and an Internet Connection!

It is entirely possible that you can go on holiday and make enough whilst there to stay longer!

You could even go on another holiday somewhere else, and the best part is the work you do…

Can pay you again, and again, again.

Imagine having one good blog post that pays you $250 or more every month without fail?!

It is the business opportunity of a lifetime IF you can master it…

the possibilities are endless
