New Affiliate Marketer Daily Routine (2022)

In this article, let’s talk about our daily routine as new affiliate marketers. We want to share this because we’re still doing affiliate marketing as a side job. That’s why we can only spend around 3 hours every day. Yet, we’ll try to share everything in detail. So, you get a better idea of our typical day.

First, we’d like to share how we manage our time within those 3 hours. We split our working hours into 3 parts:

  1. Traffic
  2. Research & Promoting, and
  3. Writing.

Each part takes about 30 minutes to 1,5 hours, depending on what we’re focusing on that day. But, there are other days that we’re only writing and researching. We called that our writing day.

So, without further ado, let’s jump right in.

Before Traffic

Duration: Less than 1 minute

For your information, we’re using macOS as our daily workhorse. So, let us share every single step from the point of view of a Mac user. First, we fire up Chrome (sorry, Safari). After that, the first thing we do is activate our MetaMask extension on Chrome.

Wait, WHAT?

Yes, we know it is a bit weird. But, let us explain it to you. We need to activate the MetaMask extension to get it ready to gain credits for our Honeygain app.

Honeygain is our passive income app. It gathers every unused bandwidth and transforms it into Honeygain credits. Then, we visit the Honeygain website and open their dashboard. It looks like this:

Honeygain Earnings

After that, we always open Honeygain’s lucky pot every day. This pot contains 10 to 10.000 Honeygain credits. Why do we need to open it every day? Because every 10MB shared to Honeygain will get you 3 Honeygain Credits. For every 1.000 credits, you will get $1. Opening Honeygain’s lucky pot will give you extra credits for FREE!

Moreover, Honeygain is partnering with JumpTask. It will give you a 50% bonus gift by connecting your Honeygain wallet with the JumpTask wallet. This app really helps us as new affiliate marketers. In fact, this is one of the first affiliate offers we promote.

If you want to try Honeygain, you can sign up using our affiliate links and get a $5 sign-up bonus right away!

Now, let’s start with our first task.


Duration: 30 minutes

You might be wondering why we’re talking about traffic. As a new affiliate marketer, we need to drive traffic to our site. Why? Because we need as many people as we can to visit our site. Pretty straightforward, isn’t it?

Without traffic, we cannot expect someone to take action on our affiliate offers. If you ever ask how to start affiliate marketing with no money, you must learn how to drive traffic to your site.

So, how can we drive traffic to our site in 30 minutes? The way we’re doing this is by using several traffic generator sites. We combine a free and paid method to do it. This is the list of traffic resources we’re using right now:

  • TrafficAdBar
  • LeadsLeap
  • The Click Engine

We’ll explore this one by one.


TrafficAdBar Home Page

TrafficAdbar is a traffic exchange site. This site can drive traffic to your website. How? By surfing and clicking the ads for a certain amount of time. You can sign up for free and list up to 5 different links or websites on TrafficAdBar. We find this site very useful to drive traffic in the early stage.


LeadsLeap Home Page

Another traffic exchange you can use is LeadsLeap. But, the way it works is a bit different than TrafficAdBar. On LeadsLeap, you must create an ad and submit your offer or links alongside the ad. After that, the process is similar. You must click on other people’s ads and earn credits in exchange for getting your ad visited by other members. Signing up is also free, and you can put up to 3 ads as a free member.

Pros & Cons of Free Traffic Exchange Site

However, there are several pros and cons to using these traffic exchange services.

– These are real people visiting your site.
– Spending 30 minutes can drive up to 100 website visitors.
– The more you view other people’s ads, the more visitors you will get.
– You can find out what other affiliate marketers are promoting right now.
– If you want to capture email addresses, this might be one of the best ways to do it for free.

– It’s a monotonous task to do.
– Most of them are cold traffic, only visiting sites for the same purpose as you.
– You must wait at least 5 seconds before you can visit another ad.
– Some of the ads are old enough with clumsy designs.

Usually, we spend around 10 – 15 minutes with these two sites, and we’re done. How about the last 15 – 20 minutes That’s where our paid traffic exchange service comes in.

The Click Engine

We’ve mentioned that we can get an idea of what other affiliate marketers are up to before. We find a lot of exciting offers by using The Click Engine.

The idea of The Click Engine is that you put the link you want to promote. Every day, you’ll receive an email from the vendor—Jeff Aman. You open that email, and there is a link you need to click that opens up to other people’s advertisements.

You might be wondering, what’s the difference? These people that already subscribed to The Click Engine are genuine buyers traffic. Not cold traffic. They are real people with money and are ready to act if they find attractive offers.

So, is it effective? In fact, we got a few affiliate sales through this service. You can think of it as one of the best sources to exchange traffic and information. That’s right. Information. In our case, this is the best way to drive genuine traffic on auto-pilot for as low as $4,90 per month.

Moreover, Jeff Aman—the man behind The Click Engine—is kind enough to send some cash to its members. Every week, he chooses one member for a cash reward ranging from $10 or even $15! We haven’t got the chance to receive it. But we will get it someday!

We’re finished with the traffic part as our first task. Now, let’s move on to the second task.

Research & Promoting

Duration: 30 – 90 minutes

This is where we spend most of our time daily as new affiliate marketers: research while promoting offers.

You might be asking, why is this important? To be honest with you. You cannot create high-quality content without any research. You need research to support your idea with data and elaborate your writing for your viewers.

Actually, the way we do our research is pretty simple. There are several sites that we always visit every day to do research:

  • Quora
  • Facebook
  • Wealthy Affiliate
  • Google Trends
  • Subscribed Newsletters
  • Pinterest

Let’s go through the list one by one.


Quora Home Page

Quora is the best place to do research for free. Here’s why. People are asking thousands of questions on Quora every day. Thousands of questions. These are real people asking questions about anything every single day.

Here, you can find a lot of categories or Spaces in Quora. No matter what your niche is, there are a lot of Spaces to follow. Spaces are a topic or category where everyone can ask related questions and get answers.

Quora is the best resource for us as a new affiliate marketer. Why? Because we can promote our offers while answering their questions. If you can answer at least 10 questions daily on Quora, you’re promoting your offers to at least 10 people. Within a month, you’ll get 300 visitors to your site. Quite handy, isn’t it?

Now, let’s move on to the next option.


Facebook Groups
List of Facebook Groups

Facebook is also a wonderful place to do research, especially on Facebook Groups. You can find a lot of Facebook Groups from various niches and have a conversation with its members. So, you can promote your offers through that conversation.

Let’s say you can have a conversation with only 5 people in a group. You can get 5 visitors to your site. Multiply that into 5 different groups. You’ll get 25 people to visit your site daily. If you do it every day, you’ll get 750 visitors to your website in a month.

Wait a minute. You might be thinking, where is the research part? It seems that we’re only promoting.

There are a lot of questions on both Quora and Facebook Groups. While you’re answering all those questions, you’ll find a lot of other questions. We always make notes for a few questions that have no answers or a few answers—usually less than 5 people.

Let’s say you find a question related to your niche, and no one is answering. That means people are searching for an answer, and you can create a post about it.

For example, this post is one of them. We were browsing through Facebook Groups on the make-money-online niche. We found several questions about affiliate marketers’ daily routines. That’s why we decide to create this post to give an idea about what a new affiliate marketer can do daily. This way, you’ll always get a topic to write about.

Let’s move on to the next option.

Wealthy Affiliate

Wealthy Affiliate Premium Member
Wealthy Affiliate Member Page

As a member of Wealthy Affiliate, we can always find something to write by visiting their site. However, you can’t view it if you’re not a member. So, we always encourage our readers to read one of our previous posts.

Moving on to the next option.

Google Trends

Google Trends
Google Trends Result

If you haven’t tried Google Trends, you’re not tapping into Google’s full potential. Google Trends will give you an overview of whatever keywords you want to write about. For example, you can search for keywords like passive income ideas. Then, you can view it based on topics. After that, you’ll find the most searched keywords and questions related to that topic. Such as;

  • What is a passive income?
  • Best Passive Income 2022
  • NFTs passive income
  • OpenSea
  • How to make passive income with cryptocurrencies

The list goes on.

So, as a new affiliate marketer, you’ll get a topic and an outline for your next post. Usually, we always write everything down on our notes first. After that, we create an outline based on our findings.

The best part? It’s free! If you aim to get your post ranked on Google search, you definitely need to use Google Trends.

Now, let’s move on to the next option.

Subscribed Newsletters

If you’re like us, you must have subscribed to at least 3 different newsletters. Your intuition might be the same as we were doing a few months ago, whether you remember it or not. When you receive a newsletter, you might open it and delete it. Even better, you unsubscribe from it.

But now, we like to read newsletters to do research. You might be asking, what kind of research can we do by opening a newsletter? Here is a list of what you can learn from opening a newsletter:

  • Email Subject
  • Opening sentence
  • Sentence length
  • Paragraph length
  • Email design
  • Timing
  • Call-to-action words

As you can see, you can learn A LOT from opening a newsletter. As a new affiliate marketer, you can use this approach to learn how to do email marketing.

Moreover, you can observe and learn what words they’re using on the email subject. What kind of opening sentence they’re using to attract you as a reader? How do they break their paragraphs? What design and layout do they use for their emails, and how are they forming the CTA to make you click or buy their offers?

So, the next time you open a newsletter, take note of everything you can learn from that email. This way, you can create an engaging email for your readers.

Next, we’re going to explore Pinterest.

Pinterest Pins

When you visit Pinterest, you usually go to find inspiration for your next post.

For example, let’s say you search for affiliate marketing. Chances are, you’ll find hundreds of ideas to explore. Moreover, you can also see whether someone else has already covered the topic you want to post.

But, just like newsletters, we’re not using Pinterest to look for everyone else’s pins. Nor do we want to adopt those ideas. As a new affiliate marketer, we’re using Pinterest to research headlines. You see, Pinterest will always provide you with great headline ideas. Let’s take it from the previous affiliate marketing result. You’ll find things like:

  • 13 Affiliate Programs That Pay Beginners High Commission.
  • Top Affiliate Programs That Make Up To $2.000
  • Tips for Making Your First Affiliate Sales
  • 27 Places You Hadn’t Considered to Promote Affiliate Links

… and so on.

So, if you look at these headlines, you can always change them into other niches. Let’s say you are working on a post for passive income ideas. You can adopt other headlines and create yours.

  • 9 Smart Passive Income Ideas for Beginners in 2022
  • Top Smart Passive Income Ideas That Make Up To $2.000
  • How to Start Earning Your First Passive Income
  • 11 Unexpected Passive Income Ideas

As you can see, there are plenty of options to work with your headlines. Moreover, you can also test it out using MonsterInsights’s Headline Analyzer Tool.

You can use Pinterest to find power and emotional word for your upcoming headline. You can also use it to structure and test your headline for a better click-through rate.

Why? Because as David Ogilvy once said,

“On average, five times as many people read the headline as read the body copy. When you have written your headline, you have spent eighty cents out of your dollar.”

—David Ogilvy

Writing a catchy headline is an art, a skill to master for every affiliate marketer. You need to consider creating a headline that can summarize your entire post in one sentence. Moreover, you also need to bring value to your headline. So, next time you want to create a catchy headline, you can always visit Pinterest to look for a reference.

Now, let’s move on to the final task. Writing.


Duration: 30 – 90 minutes.

As some of you might have guessed. This is the hardest part of all the tasks as a new affiliate marketer. But, we want to explain it to you in the simplest way possible.

So, when it comes to writing, you already know that you need research. But, when it comes to (actually) writing your post, there are a few other things you need. Here, we break it down into 6 steps with a twist (we’ll tell you more about it).

  1. Outline
  2. Tools
  3. Editing
  4. Taking a Break
  5. Editing (Again)
  6. Finalizing


Unless you’re a talented writer with high imagination, you don’t need an outline to write. But, most of us need them to write blog posts. That’s why we never start without it. After that, we can get into the actual writing process.

An outline consists of everything you want to talk about. But you want to divide it into smaller chunks. No one wants to read a paragraph with 10-15 long sentences. You will immediately tune out if we write a long and tiresome paragraph from the first sentence. Breaking down your content into sizeable chunks helps your reader understand your post.


You also need tools to write effective sentences. Our best writing tools are Grammarly and Hemingway Editor. Grammarly will help you write like a Pro. It’s free, and you can also install it as an extension on Chrome. But, as you might already know, you’re limited to basic editing on the free version.

Hemingway Editor is a great tool to remind you to write short and readable sentences. Hemingway will give you suggestions to use an active voice in your sentence. Moreover, Hemingway will guide us to write in plain English. This way, you can write a that is easy to read and understandable for your audience.

The best part? It’s also free to use! In other words, if you combine both tools, you’re invincible.

However, if you’re stuck, you can use AI copywriting tools to help you to brainstorm for your post. We do not recommend writing entirely with AI copywriters. It’s a tool to help you, not to write for you.


When you’re writing, you need to do editing, too. To be honest, this is the most time-consuming part of writing. For us, editing means reading through what we have written. To edit is to add more explanation or simplify our content. This way, we can deliver high-quality posts to our readers.

Taking A Break

If you feel stuck with the process of writing, taking a break is always a good option. Leave everything you’re writing behind and do something else. For us, it’s best to play games when we are taking a break. As a new affiliate marketer, you also need to know when you should take a break. This will help you clear your mind.

Editing (Again)

After you feel refreshed, you can continue to edit your post again. But, here’s the twist we’ve mentioned. Do not proceed to the next step if you’re not finished writing. You can always go back to the first step and recheck your outline.

Why? As a new affiliate marketer, you don’t want to finish writing for the sake of just completing it. There is no need to hurry in writing a high-quality post. It is not a speed competition. So, ensure everything is completely done before moving to the next step.


When it comes to finalizing, you have your post ready. Then, it’s time to put everything together. For us, this is where we categorize our post structure by setting it as a heading and paragraph. Moreover, this is also where we do the final reading and add bold, italic, bullet points, etc.

So, you might be thinking, why we’re not doing it during the editing process? Because everything can change while it’s still in the editing process. We don’t see any reason to put bold, underline or italic on a word or sentence in the editing process. Above all, this is where you add all your affiliate links to your post. It takes time, and you want to ensure everything is working.


To summarize our daily routine as a new affiliate marketer, there are several processes within those three hours. Since we’re not full-time affiliate marketers, we took a long time to create this kind of post.

We hope we can give you a better idea of what to do, especially if you’re new to affiliate marketing. There are many resources related to affiliate marketing on the internet. In addition, you can also share your routine in the comment section. Thank you for your precious time, and we hope we can inspire you with our story.

  1. Hi there, 

    just wanted to stop by and thank you for the great information. I was thinking about becoming an affiliate marketer, but still, it felt overwhelming for me. 

    In the article, you desire it somehow clear that it is understandable. 

    What I personally find really interesting is Google Trends. Boy, this is a powerful tool! 
    Thanks a lot for the tip. 

    Regarding Pinterest –  I don’t know how to use it – I mean, how to attract visitors.
    But from what you are saying, it is a great source for ideas… I will be spending more time there. 

    Really this is a great piece of content regarding time management. I might print it out and stick it on my wall. 

    Thanks a lot

    • Hi Michal, thank you for dropping by! Glad you enjoy reading it.

      As for Pinterest, I don’t use it to attract visitors. But, I’d like to do more research on how to attract more visitors to Pinterest. That’s a hard one, too!

      Thank you for your support! 

  2. You pointed out this app called Honeygain and this caught my interest, but I think there are some questions that went through my mind.

    How do you withdraw your earnings?

    Is there any withdrawal limit or fixed dates for payments?

    Does this app slow down your browser if it uses your bandwidth?

    I think it would be interesting to know these details before joining.

    • Hi Bogdan.

      They are using PayPal for a minimum payment of $20. Or if you’re using Honeygain + JumpTask, you can withdraw to Cryptocurrencies such as BTC, ETH, and JMPT (JumpTask Token).

      And based on my experience, Honeygain doesn’t slow down my browsing experience.

      Hope this helps! 😀

  3. Thank you for detailing the process very thoroughly. You have categorized all the steps, so it feels well planned and more effective and efficient. Glad I’ve heard about the Honeygain app and the traffic ad bar. We need to know plenty much to get into the competition, but I believe, once mastered, it pays off beautifully.

  4. Hi Sugiya

    Three very productive hours indeed! Thank you for recommending Monster Insight. I use a different SEO Tool, but in comparison, I get a very low score when testing it on Monster Insight. Will definitely run my headers past Monster Insight in the future as well. 

    Clever people learn from their mistakes, while wise people learn from the mistakes of others. The key is emulating other people’s success but putting a spin on it and offering it in a new and innovative way.     

  5. You certainly provided value to me with this article.  I had not heard of HoneyGain before, but I will certainly get involved in it now.  I like how you break up your day so that you get some of the big activities each and every day.  I use this same outline, but there are also days when I just feel like writing and the analytics will be there whether I check on them or not.  I like that you provided places to look for topics.  I personally like Google Trends, but I will also be using Quora going forward.

    Pinterest is certainly the up and comer in the social media world and a great place to harvest blog topics.  I will also use this. You have provided me with a new way to look at my day as a blogger.



    • Thank you for dropping by, Warren! I’m glad that I could provide you with a new perspective as a blogger. Cheers!

  6. When I read your article I thought it was very good as far as covering the different parts of affiliate marketing, however as a newbie affiliate marketer, I had trouble understanding the traffic part of your article. I did go to the honeygain website to try to understand what it was, and after watching their video on their homepage, I kind of get the gist of it. I think that all in all, you have done a great job describing just exactly what it takes to be an affiliate marketer. 

    • Hi Kevin, which part of the traffic part you don’t understand? Do you mean the traffic exchange part? Basically, to drive traffic to your site, you can put your site on a traffic exchange site as I’ve mentioned. There are a lot of options to choose from, but I personally use both TrafficAdBar and LeadsLeap.

      The way it works is by surfing on both sites, clicking on ads, you will exchange traffic with other people who are viewing on that site, too. Let me know if you have any questions, I’m more than happy to help 😀

  7. Becoming an affiliate hasn’t been easy, but i know its worth it. This really explains everything that can come from this job. This site is honest and fourth coming. I recommend taking the time to check this site out and learning something new because you wont regret it. There is always more to learn. Even when you think you know everything, your mind will be blown because you can learn something new everyday to further better your experience. 

  8. Hi there

    This is a really interesting article. As an affiliate marketer, it’s valuable to see how other marketers spend most of their time. You have definitely given me food for thought here. A few of your ideas are new to me: TrafficAdsBar; Lead Leap; The Click Engine.  

    I guess my question with those programs is how much traffic do they generate for you? Is it worth the time, or would it be more profitable to take that time to simply write more articles?

    Also- I had HoneyGain but I had a feeling it wasn’t using up everything it could from my internet connection. What is the Google Extension you mentioned? Maybe that is the issue. 

    Thanks for this thoughtful article,


    • Hi, Beth. Thank you for dropping by!

      I only spend around 30-40 minutes surfing on all of those sites. Usually, I ended up surfing for at least 50 sites for each traffic generator service.

      For surfing 50 sites, you can get around 50-100 visits to your site. It depends on the ladder level, especially for TrafficAdBar. The higher your site ladder, the more frequent it will appear.

      I spend most of the surfing on the weekend since I have more time on the weekend 😀

      I think it’s worth the time while you’re finding new topics to write for your next post. You can also learn more about what other people are promoting.

      As for Honeygain, you can Install the App to let it run in the background. Then, you can see if it’s running for content delivery. In my country, content delivery is not available, yet ;(

      But, if you’re connecting it to the JumpTask, you can gain more credits by installing the Metamask. This means you can get paid through Cryptocurrency (JMPT).

      There is a button on the top right of the Honeygain dashboard. You can activate and set it to JumpTask mode. 

      If you have more questions, kindly let me know. I will be more than happy to help 😀

  9. Thank you very much for such a thorough article, I see all a raving about Honeygain me included, that really interested me. It was interesting reading about traffic sites I found that useful and shall be taking a look at them.

    I’m currently a premium member of Wealthy Affiliate and could not rave about them more its an excellent platform for building an online business from scratch along with no previous experience.

    I love how disciplined you are about your daily task and thank you for such an insightful and valuable post.

  10. Because my blog is an affiliate marketing blog, your post came right on time. I have never heard of any of these sites to help with traffic. This post is awesome very informative and valuable to me. I need to see this today because traffic is my best problem with my blog. Thank you so much for this post. I am bookmarking your site to come back to it because I know there will be more valuable information.

    • Thank you for dropping by, Sharee! I’m glad that I could share what I know and help you with your blog. Wishing you all the best!

  11. Very interesting article, which as someone who has worked online since 2000 and full time, since 2009, I found a very good insight with this post

    The one thing I struggled with, simply because there is no plan, even if you have a mentor, which I didn’t have until 2008, then only briefly, was the daily method of operation. Its absolutely crucial.

    So its good to see you outline how and where you spend your time online and for how many hours.

    Now I learned something new as well, because I have Honeygain, but didn’t know you can use it the way you describe, so thats an area for me to look at.

    Its good to see that you mention the only traffic exchange worth being on in Traffic Ad Bar. The owner Darren is a very hard working admin and by using Traffic Ad Bar, which incidentally is rated at #1 By Traffic Hoopla, the independent web portal for online advertising, then you know the traffic is good quality

    LeadsLeap is also good and so called because it literally has leads Leap out at you and puts them on your list. Its the alterenative to Adsense, because you get paid without having to do keyword research.

    You also mention several sites where you can get back links to your website, as well as ideas for content, delivered into your inbox. In fact Leadsleap is great for this because it delivers a review a day into your inbox, in its daily email, so the work on that part is done for you.

    Facebook groups is a great way to get interaction and traffic as you mention, in fact you could be a bit smarter than interacting in groups, because you can start your own group on Facebook, then share that link in other groups, as long as the information is relevant and quality.

    Wealthy Affiliate, again I would agree with you on this because as a paid member, you get access to some very high quality content rich information which provides a steady stream of ideas for you, again the work is done in terms of research, as its coming to you

    Email Newsletters, now this is one of my faves, could be yours too, because you get ideas and not only that, but you get to see how other people use Autoresponders and how they write their emails

    Equally Pinterest is an awesome platform to get traffic from, which doesn’t need any real engagement as such, because you simply share your post as a pin by clicking the image on your post and the job is done. As long as you have written a compelling and enjoyable post, with a call to action then you can attract a lot of the right quality traffic.

    Very enjoyable and thanks for sharing this.

    • Thank you for your comprehensive reply, Dave! I really appreciate it! I’m glad that you liked my content. Hopefully, I can inspire you through this content.

  12. Hi, some interesting pointers here on your article, some of which I have not heard of like Honeygain – Can you make any decent returns from these programs? Overall though some good advice for newbies and it’s always helpful to see what is working for others so thanks for sharing.

    • Hi, Dan. Thank you so much for dropping by. As for Honeygain, I think you can make any decent returns, especially if you have referrals. I just gain around 8 referrals right now, and it’s helping me to get more credits on Honeygain.

  13. Breaking your time into sections can certainly help create blogs, habits and can generate curiosity for the next topic. Using Facebook groups as a means to get ideas for blog posts is one way to boost your creativity and authority for your niche. Sectioning off your day allows you to accomplish more throughout the day. Most of the people who do not section off their day or have a schedule their day often are the ones who give up on their dreams.


  14. These are very helpful tips that you provided for beginner affiliate marketers, including myself. You had made the process of how to succeed in affiliate marketing a whole lot easier. Writing content is a very daunting task and no one is ever looking forward to do it.

    It’s very hard to stay motivated these days when writing out content becomes more a chore rather than being able to enjoy it. Taking a break is a very good thing to do when feeling unmotivated and mentally drained out.

    Thanks for showing how it’s done. 🙂

  15. I found your post to be very informative, I am new at Affiliate marketing so seeing some of the things you use to get results is really helping me. 

     I have been having a hard time with trafficking and felt really stuck with that, I am going to look into some of the places you mentioned to help with that. I thought all places to get traffic cost money but I am glad to see that I was wrong.

    I am still learning on how to do affiliate marketing and this is a great page to look at, and I will save it to go back and look at it for more reference. 

    • Hi, Reggie. Glad that you liked the article. Traffic is really something that people need to learn more about. But, in order to get traffic, you need to have a post, too! I’m still new too in affiliate marketing, if you have any questions, just let me know. Sharing is caring!

  16. Your post filled my knowledge about how to be better affiliate marketer through taking actions systematically in compiling your research with full use of the time you have. 

    This post has a valuable collection high quality, practical tools to implement to create a helpful post.

    Getting traffic through answering questions in social media and Quora- is a practical way to build some traffic. I haven them at times in my sites but not to the extent I like to. Pinterest has evolved and can help the affiliate marketer in a big way.

    It takes time to create a high quality blog posts that will attract visitors and the buy stuff through your link. 

    Thank you for sharing your research. I gathered many new things and improved my understanding.

    • Thank you for dropping by, Anusuya! Hopefully, I can inspire you through these short working hours doing affiliate marketing. Cheers!

  17. Thank you for sharing a typical day as a newbie affiliate marketer. You did give me some insight on a few things I did not know like Honeygain. 

    Nor did I know anything about the traffic exchange sites. I can see how this step can be beneficial to build a small amount of traffic but is the traffic going to be just random views with no real intent? So while it is traffic and views can those visitors convert or do they just click and keep going?

    I think using Fb groups to get traffic is a great idea and a way to get targeted visitors to your site that will provide them real value and something I may add.

    You have mentioned some great tools. Research and writing is key for an affiliate marketer.

    Thanks again,


    • Hi, Lisa. Thank you for dropping by. 

      To answer your concern about traffic exchange sites. Yes, that is the downside of putting your site on a rotator. I use it only for a few minutes just to drive enough traffic to my site. Since my site is already approved for Google Adsense. 

      But, if you’re more interested to drive real traffic with real intentions, I suggest checking out my other post about The Click Engine.

  18. You have some great ideas on here that I had not thought about.  Specifically for traffic.  I never thought to go to sites like Quora and answer questions.  What a great idea.  I am a member of Wealthy Affiliate which does provide lots of opportunities for promoting my site.  But all-in-all, I loved this article and took some notes!

  19. Terrific article Sugiya, thank you much for sharing it. It cracked me up that you use Chrome on a MacBook because that is the exact configuration I have been using for about 4 yrs now and had never heard of anyone else doing the same. In fact, I have gotten some rather strange looks from people when they recognize what I’ve done. The Click Engine sounds interesting too. Is that just for certain niches?

    • Hi, Joseph! Yes, it seems a bit weird if you’re using a Mac but you use Chrome. But, I like Chrome better for doing tasks like this 😀 As for your question regarding The Click Engine, you can use it to promote almost any niche. But, I suggest to stick with MMO related niche and marketing 🙂

      Hope this helps!

  20. This is a very interesting way to build traffic and gain minimum quantities of passive income. It does seem to be a very tedious tradition before you begin the actual routine of adding new links and creating new content. I do go to some of the sites you mentioned to promote but I do not do as much research. Thinking up new ideas for content will eventually require some research. This is a very good startup method. I like the process you recommend.

  21. I am impressed. You seem to get so much done in your three hours. I also do this part-time, and in those three hours, I am lucky if I get to write one good article. I don’t even have time to drive traffic, although luckily Leads Leap and The Click Engine are pretty automatic, both being paid accounts. I definitely think I need to organize my time a bit better to get the maximum buck for the time spent. Thanks for this useful and eye-opening article.

    • Thank you for dropping by, Michel! Glad that you like the article. It’s great to know that you also do this part-time. I usually write my article on the weekend 😀

  22. Thank you for this great information. Being an affiliate marketer sure does require consistency and effort for content creation, promoting the products, and expanding your boundaries to reach customers. As a Wealthy Affiliate member, I love that you included this website as a good source of research for creating high-quality content. 

    And I totally agree that a great way to get traffic is by using Pinterest, which doesn’t require any tedious engagement as such, since you simply share your post as a pin by clicking the image on your post, and the rest is done for you.

    • Hi, Martina. Thank you for leaving a comment 😀

      I strongly recommend people to join Wealthy Affiliate if they aim to build a sustainable affiliate marketing business 🙂 

  23. The life of an affiliate marketer though can be fun especially if you are making sales, there is so much to do like keyword research, writing a blog post, answering questions, posting on social media, and engaging your audience also. Then there may be tech issues etc… there is so much to do but the rewards are there. Thanks so much for sharing.

  24. One research platform I love to use is Google Alerts. I love making sure I am up to date with all the latest news from my chosen niche. It helps me put my mind at rest knowing I haven’t missed anything important or a potential content opportunity. Quora is also great as someone will always have a question based on your niche.

  25. I loved reading your article “A Day In The Life Of A New Affiliate Marketer”. I am so impressed with how you plan and use your allotted 3 hours each day. Several of the tools you mention, I had never heard of so I will definitely be investigating those for my own business. While there are certain freedoms from working online from home, the life of an affiliate marketer can be quite challenging. Congratulations on your success so far.

  26. Wow, extremely nice website. The first page is very colorful, it invites the reader to keep on digging. Also, I am involved in affiliate marketing as well, and found some very useful information. I appreciate it very much. The reading on your website is not boring at all, it kept me glued for a while. I will mimic some of your writings if you don’t mind. I found the site to be very informative.

  27. This article on ‘New Affiliate Marketer: Accomplish This Task Within 3 Hours’ is very informative. I wish it were available when I first started. Although I have tried Traffic Bar, it was not sustainable for me. Too much time for a hand full of visitors that increased my bounce rate due to short time on site. However, the remainder of the recommendations like promising.

    • Hi, Canty. Thank you for dropping by. Yes, I do agree it will increase the site’s bounce rate for TrafficAdBar. But, at first, I do recommend it to stimulate the traffic to your site. It helped my post get indexed on Google 😀
