Top 5 Affiliate Marketing Blogs 2019
My Top 5 Best Recommended Affiliate Marketing Blogs 2019: What You Really Need to Know?
Personally, for me, Affiliate Marketing is a direct method of earning commission by promoting a product on your website or a social page.
In other words, you earn a commission by promoting a company’s or a person’s product. It’s an easy way to earn passive income. Just sign up for a program, insert the links of the product on your site or social media page and watch your income grow from the purchases through your links.
Unfortunately, there are certain creases in the details of Affiliate Marketing that must be ironed out for you to truly appreciate the process and start earning significant income from it.
For me, the 3 Key Factors of becoming Successful in Affiliate Marketing are –
- Set Achievable Goals
- Stick to What You Know – you will need to write content, ad copy, emails, etc…so if you know what you’re selling, you’ll have a better chance to succeed
- Acquire some technical knowledge – These days nothing can be done without technology. I am not saying you need to be a top programmer or an IT Whiz Kid, but you need to know how things work!!

He started blogging as his passion and now is empowering more than 900,000+ readers globally by helping his readers understand more the concept of digital marketing and how they can enrich their lives with the power of blogging.
What I see is his passion to focus on three primary niches especially, blogging, affiliate marketing and, make money online.
As an experienced affiliate marketer, I really enjoyed Harsh’s in dept knowledge in the field of sharing his affiliate marketing knowledge and mind you, he gets pretty much in detail with his affiliate marketing niche. Some of his blog posts include topics such as A Complete Guide to Creating An Amazon Affiliates Site With WooCommerce, The Ultimate Beginner’s Guide to Mastering Amazon Affiliate Marketing, Must-Know Things Before Joining Any Affiliate Marketing, and the list goes on.
I especially enjoyed reading one of his Affiliate Marketing blog post about What is Affiliate Marketing & FAQ. I like the fact that Harsh gave a complete overview of the Affiliate Marketing process and the types of common Affiliate Marketing Terms being associated with the subject of Affiliate Marketing.
He talks about OPM, 2-tier affiliate marketing, link cloaking, etc. For the Affiliate Marketing FAQ subject, he has addressed important points like, how much money you can make as an affiliate blogger?, whether it is important to have a blog for affiliate promotion?, qualifications needed to be an Affiliate Marketer, and more…

His post has a compelling Q&A session where he talks about the basics of Affiliate Marketing and Affiliate Network and goes about talking how to really make a substantial amount of passive income with different Affiliate Networks. Kevin has provided a clear review of the Affiliate Networks and its benefits.
