Finding the Right Vehicle for Success…???
Hello Guys, buckle up because today this ride is going to get bumpy! For this post, I will be discussing a few different ideas for helping you with finding the right vehicle for your Success!
You may wonder what I am going on about?? But I don’t mean something like a car, or motorbike!
No, rather what I mean is a Vehicle that can transport YOU along the way on your road to riches.
Something that can help you reach YOUR Destiny! Your DESTINATION!! ?
To where you want to get to, with your Online Business…
This is what I mean by finding the right vehicle for success ✅
A metaphor for carrying something such as an entity rather than a physical thing ?
like how a human body is a vehicle for the soul,
or how the world we live in is a vehicle for our human body…
What I want for you to grasp is something along these lines – – –
Or how about a domain, and hosting package, a website, or membership within a group –
A YouTube channel, or a Facebook business account!
Even just an internet connection and a PC…
All these have the potential to be Vehicles to Success in their own right –
but the BIG question IS what is the right vehicle for you????
Finding the Right Vehicle for Success
What Will You Drive?
Which Vehicle will you choose on your road to riches? Here is the question… what will you use to deliver yourself to the dream ? that you are ready to follow…
Q: How are you going to get from Point A as a starting point to Point B which is your destination?
hint: By having a clear idea of where this destination is should be the first thing.
PS: I wrote about this very recently in one of my other posts:

1.) Hosting Platform for Creating Your Content
How will you deliver your content for your Online Business?
This should be the first question on every single new affiliate marketers mind. Even to not so new affiliate marketers who are still struggling to make their first commissions.
Which is the right platform for you to create audience winning content? the kind that will lead to high conversions, and affiliate commissions.
My personal choice I have discussed before on this website is WEALTHY AFFILIATE or WA.
Hosting wise as a premium member you can host up to 25 websites here with free SSL certificates, and a whole ton of other stuff. The downside is you will have to pay a regular price of $49 USD a month but if you actually consider what is available this is not such a bad deal.
Also, if you sign up for premium within the first 3-4 weeks – you will get a $30 discount plus a free traffic bonus. You can actually join WA as a free member but you will definitely want to upgrade!
I am an annual member so I highly recommend it!
Read my review here ==>>>Join-Wealthy-Affiliate-My-No-1-Suggestion<<
Or perhaps you’re looking for something more affordable?
Well, another platform which you can use to build websites with their hosting platform is All In One Profits or AIOP.
This does not quite measure up to WA in terms of quality but for $10 a month, a lot of people do opt for this platform for its affordability. This also includes its own training which is a little bit different from WA. Although some it is a little outdated. If you join be sure to read their .pdf guide.
Also, another thing about AIOP is they offer an email marketing solution rather than sites such as Aweber. Plus maybe the best thing about them is they offer 100% recurring commissions to your referrals. Sign up 1 person and your membership is then paid for.
Check it out here ===>All-In-One-Profits
Otherwise, there are many other free alternatives available. I would definitely myself suggest a paid platform that offers useful training and an active community, but there are free options as well.
One is a YOUTUBE channel! Use this alongside a website or blog for more exposure. Having both is definitely better! Many people use Youtube to create videos from their posts for further exposure.
Also, TikTok I see is really taking off so maybe consider this also.
Alternatively, you can use the following websites to create a free website or blog.
2.) Training on How to Do Internet Marketing!!!
Again I highly recommend WEALTHY AFFILIATE for their Online Entrepreneur Certification, Affiliate Bootcamp, Training HQ and Classrooms.
Also, Look out for the weekly live videos on WA by MagiStudios, he really knows his stuff.
Otherwise, another good platform with high-quality training to consider which is free is MY ONLINE STARTUP or MOS. I would say 100% join because all the training is included with a free membership!
Try it out for yourself here ===>My-Online-Start-UP
Secondly, another platform with a lot of training I have found is called ClickTrackProfit. I’ve only just started using this myself but it seems to have a lot going for it in terms of training and tools.
I still need to be using it a bit longer before giving it as a solid recommendation. I am not really 100% sold yet if I am being honest but you can join as a free member.
I personally pay $7 a month for Pro because there are more resources available but you can pay also $20 for their entrepreneur package.

Other Platforms to Learn Affiliate Marketing!
If you’re after some other ideas for affiliate marketing training, here are a few others that I have come across since the start of the year. Not really any that I would use myself but here goes…
12 Minute Affiliate
SAS – Super Affiliate System
The first one Overnight Millionaire by Wesley Virgin I have been tempted by in the past, and maybe I will try if things don’t quite work out with my current training. 12 Minute Affiliate I have heard both good and bad things about. CB University and Affiliorama I really don’t know much about but the latter I hear is kind of outdated with its training.
SAS is one of John Crestani’s course’s who is a very well known affiliate marketer but again not something I would consider. Mostly for the price, and because of other more affordable training.
Anyway, once you have started training you are going to want to find products.
The best place to look for products is on…
3.) Affiliate Marketplaces
Once you have your website and have started your training then no doubt with Finding the Right Vehicle for Your Success you are going to want to find products to promote.
Once you are ready you can find a lot of websites that offer their own affiliate programs.
Wealthy Affiliate as one example offers a very generous 50% lifetime commissions. This is on memberships, and domains plus anything purchased through this website.
In fact, a lot of the platforms that are listed in this post have their own affiliate programs. You can promote these to help pay for your training, and turn each one into their own money-making machines.
For most people that do affiliate marketing though, the place to find products is marketplaces.
Here are some of the top suggestions where you can find products.
Once you have joined one of these networks, or any others that you might come across – a good idea to explore is setting up landing pages, and opt-in forms to get people onto Your Email Lists.
This is so you can send them a series of autoresponder emails.
4.) Email Marketing Resources
When you are posting regular content then one thing to seriously consider is setting up an email list to do your own Email Marketing!
After all one of the most popular sayings in Internet Marketing is – “It’s all in the list!“.
Why this is – well, once you have somebody’s email address on your email list then your chances of promoting your products can increase significantly.
By however many emails that are sent out through your email list and autoresponder.
Just make sure your emails have good subject lines, interesting content and a good CTA (Call to Action!)
One good idea is to create a new email address to sign up to other peoples lists. This is because you can use their lists for inspiration for creating your own, and to even use this as a template based off of what they are doing. One place to join many different email lists is Leads Leap.
This is an excellent way to figure out what works for other people and to duplicate it.
Anyway, my Number #1 for beginners looking to try email marketing is GetResponse.
As a member, I currently pay $15 a month for up to 1k contacts. Once this number starts to grow you may want to consider an upgrade with GetResponse or even by using something else.
This membership though in my experience is great for setting up landing pages, autoresponders and newsletters so once you are ready definitely check out their free trial below;
Join here ===> GetResponse.com
Alternatively, there is MailChimp and Aweber. Very similar platforms but with different pricing structures. Mailchimp is $19 a month whilst Aweber is the most expensive @ $27 a month.
Also, Other Email Marketing Ideas to Consider
Although there are other options available – All In One Profits is one that stands out to me.
AIOP for $10 a month also offers an email marketing solution, but what is actually better about this platform is you can have unlimited contacts. Compared to GetResponse this $5 less and you can add as many people to your lists as you wish without the need to upgrade.
The only drawback which puts me off is AIOP don’t offer the same quality of templates for building landing pages as platforms such as GetResponse, MailChimp and Aweber.
The smart thing to do I would say is to try and use both. Especially if you can get 1-2 referrals for AIOPs as this then covers your membership.
Also, Leads Leap I’d like to give an honourable mention to.
Leads Leap has its own system for building email lists. This works in conjunction with their own Optin form builder called PopUpXpert. I will use a pop up on this page so you can see.
As for landing pages with Leads Leap, this has just been released very recently.
Be sure to check out Leads Leap here: ===>LeadsLeap.Com
5.) Traffic and Lead Generation!
Building traffic to visit your content is an absolute must but also having the right kind of traffic is very important as well.
Paid advertising is one way of achieving this;
You can use PPC adverting such as Google and Bing Ads. Native ads using websites such as Taboola or Outbrain. Then there are Solo Ads which can be very effective also.
Plus there are others – text/link ads and paid traffic services etc.
Read my post here: SEO and Website Traffic Top Tips #2
Get Free Traffic
Then there are also ways to get free traffic. Chief among these is using Social Media. I will discuss this in more detail below.
Otherwise, let’s say though you are instead in trying to draw attention to a landing page. You want to get people to join your email list, and target them more efficiently, and with different offers.
HERE IS HOW
Leads Leap I mentioned above. This is one that I really like as you get 3 free ads as a free member but if you upgrade you get 10 free ads and 10 pro ads = 20 ads.
I have found that as long as you post good quality ads this can be a very good source of both traffic and sign-ups.
Alternatively, I would also suggest looking into

Plus you can also try;
Leads N Profits
and Prosperity Marketing System
Or, try out some of these training platforms below to turn your Social Media into your No.#1 Lead Generation Tool! ?
Simple Social Media Sales (Facebook)
Instapreneur Academy (Instagram)
6.) Forums for Affiliate Marketing
Something again I’m not really very well versed in. Although this has been something I have been giving some serious thought over the past few days. Getting involved in more forum based activity such as starting discussions and getting involved in more discussions relevant to my current operations.
Marketing Checkpoint is maybe the one I am most involved with at the moment but there is a lot of different one’s. Many are also free to join so definitely something to consider. As this is a good opportunity to ask for help from like-minded people that are trying to do similar to what you are.
Here are just a few ideas of one’s to join…
or if you have the money there is also…
STM – Stack the Money $100 a Month!
AffLIFT – $20 a month.
7.) Safelists and Traffic Exchanges
This is a bit of a tedious one. If you have heard of Safelists or Traffic Exchanges before you will know what I mean. These may not be the best way to get organic traffic but these do sometimes help.
These are basically websites where people share their links through a points-based system. Which you can use to get visits to your content.
This can be very time consuming, and you may feel they are often a waste of time completely but, these are known for some people to actually work.
Here are just some that I personally use every once in a while…
8.) Downline Builder
This is for anybody that is looking for new programs to promote. Can be a very useful tool if you are a member of many different affiliate marketing websites as it offers the opportunity to get more referrals.
Personally I have only joined Elite Downline Builder, and Cash In On Banners at the time of writing this. There are others that I will likely join once I have a full downline.
2 ideas to join;
#Note: What I do is keep a spreadsheet for all the programs, and then add my links to different downlines and rotators. EDB is also good as it offers a Bitcoin faucet where you can join different programs to earn BTC.
Not only this but you also have text ads, full-page ads, banner ads and solo ads which you can all use to promote your different offers also.
9.) Social Media Marketing
Now when I say about Finding the Right Vehicle for Success. Take your time I don’t mean you have to try everything at once. If you want to do this then fine, good for you, but please just don’t over-do it. #choose one, or two platforms at a time bookmark and come back later.
For now though for this part of the post. Just a few ideas of places to share your content;
Find a list of Social Media Platforms that you can use for marketing below.
10.) Classified Ad Submissions
Not something I know a lot about I’ve heard this is a great way to promote different products. Using sites such as Craigslist and Gumtree. Actually advertising digital instead of physical products for sale –
there is a ton of websites you can use for this, and also this can be a golden opportunity to market your affiliate links for free.
This is definitely something worth learning about how to do, as it is one way of affiliate marketing without a website, blog or YouTube.
One idea if you have the money is to subscribe to a paid Classified Ads auto poster.
Below is just one example;

11.) Article Submission Sites
For any content creators with their own websites, youtube videos, splash pages, or landing pages – one idea is to link through other content.
There are many websites, like the ones below that you can use to post blogs etc. and articles linking to your content.
See this post for different ideas;
Your goal is to write successfully converting content that will get your visitors to click on a link to visit your content. These do not have to be long posts but long enough to offer enough information to get your readers engaged.
The good thing about these websites and there are a lot more than these 3 is they are high DA – domain authority, and there is a pretty solid chance that people will read these posts more rather than if you say posted on your own website.
12.) Outsourcing Content
Finally, as you begin to start working more towards “Finding the Right Vehicle for Success” you may want to consider investing in getting some help. This could be for a very large number of things including content creation, video editing, SEO, hiring a virtual assistant, or help with actual marketing.
Below are some popular websites which you can use to hire people if ever you need any help.

A lot of interesting things to think about. Right now I’ll just stick with Wealthy Affiliate, that’s enough to keep me occupied for now. Once things are more established, I will probably try something here. Just don’t use TikTok, it is connected to the Chinese Communist party, so don’t use this, unless you want your information going to China. I completely forgot about Classifieds, going old school may still be valuable. Pinterest is a good simple way to try to get more traffic. Good post, I would recommend it to others.
Thank you, Anthony, for taking the time to comment. Yes I would suggest sticking with WA till you at least have finished both the online entrepreneur certification and affiliate bootcamp. About TikTok I haven’t used yet but to be fair amazon are just as bad with their alexa devices.
People often say that the very best means towards success is actually identifying what we want and knowing the way to getting to it. I actually value what you have shared here and to be very honest, it would really be a great feeling ti be able to know exactly the right manner of steps to achieving success as an affiliate marketer. This is really great to see and thank you so much for sharing here
Thank you Sherry, Glad to help.
Thanks for sharing your depth of knowledge, experiences and research in this comprehensive list of things to consider and try in finding the right vehicle for online business success. There are so many options here to choose from. If you had to help a complete newbie who wants to start affiliate marketing with the top 5 trainings/tools/resources, what would you suggest?
Also are the traffic exchanges a quality source of traffic? and do you personally use them?
Thanks in advance, John
Hi John, Honestly I need to go through this again I think at some point. A lot of it is still valid but some I think I need to take a look at again. Traffic exchanges I’m not sure about I think I have made commission this way before but most of the time I am not really sure. I think most people don’t really take much notice of the web pages just more interested in the points to share their own content. Although I think it can work if your content is really good.
