Learn how I went from $0 in affiliate income to over $50,000 per month in Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing.

I started my blog in August of 2011, at the age of 22, without any hopes of ever earning an income from it. I started it just as a hobby – a way to journal life and to talk about my personal finance situation.

After a few years of blogging, I decided to look into affiliate marketing. I had always skipped over it before because I thought my blog was too small in order to really make any money through affiliate marketing. Plus, I just didn’t think it was possible.

Me? Being able to make money while I’m sleeping or on vacation?

I surely did not think that would be possible.

Then, I started applying different affiliate marketing strategies to my blog, and they were working. I saw my blogging income increase dramatically each and every single month.

Affiliate income has changed my life.

Now, I wake up and cannot believe the amount of income I am earning through affiliate marketing, while living a great life and being able to help my audience.

I now travel full-time with my husband and our two dogs, and we are on track to have a 6 figure income month (yes, $100,000 in income a month!) through blogging by the end of this year. If it weren’t for my blog, none of this would be possible.

Whether you are a brand new blogger or if you’ve been blogging for years, this course will help you with your affiliate marketing strategies.

I have talked to several bloggers about how much money they earn through affiliate marketing, and the answers still surprise me. There are bloggers out there with millions of visitors who aren’t making affiliate income.

That doesn’t have to be the case, though.

This step-by-step online course for bloggers teaches you how to make money through affiliate marketing.

I show you how to succeed at affiliate marketing, and you don’t even need millions of page views or tons of followers in order to make money.

And, it actually works!

I earn over $50,000 a month through affiliate marketing, and I share all of my best tips in this course.

In this course, there are 6 modules, over 30 lessons, over 20 worksheets, bonuses, an extremely helpful exclusive Facebook group, and more, and I go through everything when it comes to affiliate marketing, such as:

  • What affiliate marketing is and how it works
  • Why affiliate marketing is great
  • The exact steps I’ve taken to earn over $300,000 from a single blog post
  • How to pick the right affiliate products to promote
  • How to increase conversions
  • How to build trust and not lose followers
  • Required disclosures that you need to know about
  • The one major tool you need for affiliate marketing
  • Different strategies to use to promote your affiliate products
  • How to use Pinterest to succeed at affiliate marketing (yes, this includes the newest Pinterest affiliate rules!)

This course is worth MUCH MORE than $197, so I recommend you hop on this low price now while you can!

Can you make a living off affiliate marketing?

Yes, you can definitely make a living from affiliate marketing. I personally do, and I know many, many others who do as well.

By taking Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing, you can learn the correct steps to making income through affiliate marketing.

Is affiliate marketing really profitable?

Yes, affiliate marketing can be quite profitable. One great thing about affiliate marketing is that it can be quite passive, which may mean low expenses and high income for you.

For me, this is exactly the case. I do not have many expenses with my blog, and I earn a high income through affiliate marketing.

  2. Amanda-LivingFullyandFree

    I really want to be able to take this course! I’m going to have to wait a bit financially, but I’m so proud of you Michelle! I know you’ve been working on this for awhile so I’m glad you are finally going to see your hard work come into play!

    I hope I can take this course soon!


  3. Seriously This is your real story from 0 to $50,000 USD. really inspirable.

  4. Kate @ Cashville Skyline

    Congratulations, Michelle! If I wasn’t so swamped with CFP course work, I’d be all over it. Also, a six-figure month is incredible!

  5. Nice job getting it done, Michelle! You rock!

  6. Aliyyah @RichAndHappyBlog

    I’ll be enrolling in your course! I hit the $1,000 mark in online income last month, though most of that was from freelance writing. I’d love to add passive income to the mix. I have one post that does considerably well on Pinterest, so I’m interested to learn how I can monetize it. Overall, I think the course will be worthwhile for me. I’m sure I’ll have questions!

  7. Stefanie O’Connell

    BOUGHT! πŸ™‚

  8. Just signed up! Can’t wait to dig in tonight and take my blog to the next level.

  9. Christi Johnson

    Purchasing tonight!! Congrats, Michelle!

  10. Michelle, it looks like it will be a blast! Congrats on all the hard work getting it put together!

  11. Huge congrats, Michelle! I’m sure it’ll be a terrific success.

  12. This sounds like a great course. I’m currently using affiliate marketing to make a little bit on my blog and it’s working. However, it seems like the number one thing holding me back from making tons of dough is traffic. Traffic is what really drives converting clicks into sales, am I right? I might just have to invest in this course. Thanks for all your hard work, Michelle!

    1. Traffic is a factor, but even with a small amount of page views you can still make money with affiliate marketing. There are lessons within the course that teach you how to improve your traffic as well πŸ™‚

  13. Congrats Michelle! You are a rock star and your new course seems great! I wish you the best for it.

  14. ZJ Thorne

    Congrats on finishing up your course! You are definitely an inspiration.

  15. Hi Michelle, I’m in Australia, would the course still be useful for me?

    1. Hello! Yes, I definitely think it would be. There are already a few people from Australia who have bought the course as well πŸ™‚

      1. And NZ! πŸ˜‰

  16. Nice! I will definitely jump on board before the deadline thanks for doing this I think it is a pretty cheap price considering how well you and the other contributors do!

  17. Natasha |

    Congratulations on launching your course! I need this because earning affiliate income misses me. It’ll be great to learn the process.

  18. Nicola

    Are the contents relevant for someone in the UK? Thanks.

    1. Yes, this course and the content can be applied no matter where you live and is not focused on one specific affiliate program.

  19. Sophie Leggett

    Do you have a date for the next course? I’m overseas at a conference for this one but would love to do it afterwards!

    1. This course is completely self-paced. You can purchase it whenever and start and end whenever you would like to πŸ™‚

  20. Natalie

    I am working on starting to do affiliate marketing but i am not sure on how to get started. I wish i could buy your course but i am not financially able to.

  21. HML

    Hi Michelle,

    I have been a follower of yours for a while now and very inspired by what you have achieved. I haven’t even started a blog yet as I’m not sure what to do but have some ideas. Would this course still be suitable for me? I don’t even have anything up yet.

    1. Hello! I recommend checking out my blogging course first –

  22. Ellie

    This looks completely great! Can’t wait to get stuck in!

  23. Jonathon E Powell

    How much would you say you have made off of advertisements on your biggest website in a month and how many visits do you get per month on a rough average? I just hit 6k visits today, and I want to see if I could make a noticeable money increase doing your methods. Please let me know.

    1. Hello!

      I have income reports that specifically detail this every month –

      99% of my income is from Making Sense of Cents, so pretty much everything you read in my income reports is income from just this website. Last month, I received around 400,000 page views.

  24. Hi Michelle, I’m currently enrolled in Elite Blog Academy. I’m not sure if you’re an EBA alum, but if you’re familiar, I’d be interested to know if you think this course could help me find more affiliate marketing success than the affiliate chapter in EBA. Congrats on your success!

    1. Hey Jamie!

      Yes, this course is much more in depth than the chapter in EBA, and will teach you much more about affiliate marketing as this is what the Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing course is all about πŸ™‚ EBA is a great course, don’t get me wrong, but it’s more of an overall blogging course, whereas Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing just has one focus, so, of course, it will have a lot more information πŸ™‚

  25. I’m super excited to try out your course (starting tomorrow)! I have heard great reviews about it from many other bloggers and can’t wait to get started. My blog is fairly new, but I know I could be making affiliate income if I just knew what to do. Just talking about products in a post and slapping a link in there is not working for me at all. I know this course is exactly what I need πŸ™‚

  26. Oliver

    Affiliate marketing will provide unique set of advantages and low-risk. It’s an essential part of an effective online marketing strategy.

    I read your blog every day and can’t stop:)
    Love it!

  28. Emily

    Is the content of this course still relevant a year later? I followed a link from someone’s blog so if there’s a newer, updated version, can you help me find it, please?

    1. Yes, I am still very, very active in the course. You can find the sales page here –

  29. Hi, I run a stock trading blog that is monetized with affiliate links and it has done pretty well over the last few years. I want to take things to the next level – do you think that the this course will help me, despite the quite different niche expertise? Thanks!

  30. Hi Michelle, Thank you for this course! I just finished it recently and I have already tripled my traffic in a few weeks! I wrote an honest review of your course Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing Course ( to let other people know about my experience with it! Thank you so much!

  31. I’m glad you’re in affiliate marketing Michelle. I’ve made tons of content mistakes over the years. Writing thin pages. Republishing content from other sites to mine not know about the Google duplicate content penalty not knowing what I was doing was messing up my SEO. Getting tired along the way. Not making the kind of affiliate income I was looking for in a time frame. But I persisted and kept going regardless, creating content and studying affiliate marketing along the way. My heart got into it. I worked on days I never made one red cent. Now that my affiliate income is rising and aspiring side hustle millionaire status is clear in vision, I’m taking affiliate marketing and side hustling to the public 9th step. I learned you just gotta keep going even on days you wanna give up. Thanks for being my inspiration my friend. πŸ™‚

  32. Michelle, do you have an affiliate program for your blogging course? Thanks!

    1. Yes, I do. The information for that is located in the course.
