I always seek additional income streams as part of today’s dynamic digital landscape. I do have more than one reason. However, the number one reason is that I am not getting any younger, and I want to feel confident I have a few extra dollars to help me enjoy life a bit more. I want to go on cruises, get my nails done, and spend more $$ on the kids/grandkids than I usually would.  

Setting up an affiliate marketing strategy opens the doors to additional income and provides a sustainable and passive revenue stream.

What is affiliate marketing?

Affiliate marketing involves partnering with companies to promote their products or services and earning a commission for every sale or lead generated through your unique affiliate link. Here’s how diving into affiliate marketing can be a game-changer for those seeking additional financial avenues:

Flexibility and convenience

Affiliate marketing allows you to work on your terms. Whether you’re a full-time professional, a student, or a stay-at-home parent, you can seamlessly integrate affiliate marketing into your schedule. The flexibility it offers means earning additional income without disrupting your current commitments.

Passive income potential

One of the most appealing aspects of affiliate marketing is its potential for passive income. Once you’ve set up your affiliate links and established a reliable audience, you can continue to earn commissions on sales generated through those links, even while you’re sleeping or focusing on other activities.


As your understanding of affiliate marketing grows, so does your ability to scale your efforts. Over time, you can increase your affiliate income by strategically expanding your reach, optimizing content, and diversifying your partnerships.

Diversification of income streams

Relying on a single source of income can be risky. Affiliate marketing allows you to diversify earnings by collaborating with multiple companies across various niches. This diversity acts as a safety net, ensuring that fluctuations in one market won’t significantly impact your overall income.

One rule of thumb that I live by is never to promote an item or product I have not tested myself. It is a bad policy to promote anything for the sole purpose of making money off of it. You have to remember you are a representative of the items you are sharing. This includes graphics, links, words, and videos.  When you share these types of assets across the internet, the people who know and trust you expect only the best from you.

Setting up an affiliate marketing system is minimal. Many websites you already belong to have an affiliate or referral program, like List Perfectly. I’ve been a member of many programs over the years, and I can tell you that List Perfectly’s referral program is one of the best I’ve seen.  

Why? Because they pay you for the subscriber’s lifetime. Some programs will only pay for the first year or two. The payout is 20%, which is above most other programs. I also respect their requirements. You do have to be a subscriber to participate in their referral program. Again, this is a good policy because it is created for users who know the product to promote.

Another bonus of being a part of List Perfectly’s affiliate program is the over-the-top customer support, and I am not exaggerating. A team, a community of like-minded individuals, is ready and willing to assist, including myself!

In conclusion, setting up affiliate marketing is a strategic move for those seeking to prepare for additional income. Affiliate marketing is a viable and empowering option for pursuing financial success with its flexibility, passive income potential, scalability, and ability to diversify income streams.
