How Long Does It Take To Learn Affiliate Marketing

Is the length of time it takes to learn affiliate marketing one of the things holding you back?  This is one factor that would surprise you.  It may seem like there’s a lot to learn, and true there is.  But It’s not as much or as difficult as you may think.  I’ll share the answer on how much time it can take later, for now let’s first go over what can add to the time to learn and start affiliate marketing.

Addons add time.

Addons?  This covers things like deciding to build your own website which can take a good amount of time.  Creating your own digital products to be ready when you begin your business.  Deciding what platforms to use for your online business.  Your job, which can take a chunk out of your time in devoting to this endeavor. 

The more time you have to devote to your business, the better to get empowered. 

How Long?

So how long?

All in all, it takes about 1 month to learn all the principles, routines, ethics, and practices with affiliate marketing.  So, after this amount of time, you should have it all down on what it’s all about.  An attitude of seriousness, persistence and determination is required for this endeavor.  As I pointed out above, the more you add to this, the longer it will all take in getting into place.  You’ll learn even more valuable knowledge as you build your business after you surpass the 1-month time frame. 

Long Term outlook.

Your outlook should be long term when starting an affiliate marketing business.  Overnight is a reality that just isn’t going to happen.  Depending upon what affiliate program you are using, it can take a few weeks to a few months to see your first sale, then no sales and then many months or years.  Especially if you have at least 50 to 100 quality blog posts.  It takes about a year to see some success and it can take several years to develop a fully successful affiliate marketing career.  Everyone’s experience varies and some don’t earn any money getting started, and some who persevere gaining knowledge and experience can start earning millions of dollars.  Your focus in the beginning should be on gaining knowledge and products that you want to produce or make available.  Knowledge and skills is so important than making the money itself in the beginning.  There’s no joke with the saying the more you know the more you’ll grow.  Getting started, you should be going after anything and everything you need to know to grow your business.  I wrote a post on infrastructure a bit a go and it basically covers what I’m talking about here.  Check out How To Face Problems In Affiliate Marketing – Part #3.

You can’t possibly be successful as you would be after several years of building this business.  This is due to the time it takes to amass the knowledge and skills and experience needed to support you.


In the beginning, your main focus is forging a foundation to support you on you journey, so don’t be as concerned about making the money as you begin your journey.  If you do make any that’s great!  But what you are doing in the beginning is so important.  You have to be very willing to dedicate yourself to the process with a long-term outlook to become successful.

Short term.

Can you make money right from the get go?  Yes, you can, some have, and that is why it’s important to start sharing your affiliate id right away.  There’s always that chance that you’ll get some fish to bite and make sales.  Plus, the sooner you get in promoting, the more exposure you’ll get.  This is why you need to develop an online presence as soon as possible and have something in place to collect your viewers email addresses.  One day can be very different from the next.  You can go months without any nibbles and then boom!

Get Rich Quick.

While getting rich is possible with affiliate marketing, I would not count on it early on.  If this is what you want through, then I can’t help you.  Getting rich is the result of years of effort in developing and building your affiliate marketing business.  It’s not the result of being taught, it’s the result of effort, knowledge and dedication.  Can I guarantee that you’ll get rich with affiliate marketing?  No, I can’t, as it’s all up to you.
