The Affiliate Marketing Cheat Sheet

Learn ethical affiliate marketing and increase your passive income with our free guide—now called the Affiliate Marketing Cheat Sheet.

Learn Sustainable Affiliate Marketing

At the heart of ethical affiliate marketing is being open and honest about the products and resources you love, have found to be helpful, and have used to grow your business or help you in your area of expertise.

You may think that when it comes to affiliate marketing all you need to do is send traffic to a product through a link and then you’re done, but it’s so much more involved than that and that’s why so many people fail at affiliate marketing. But when it’s done right, it can create amazing, life-changing results.

That’s why we created this cheat sheet—to help clear up a lot of the misconceptions about affiliate marketing and show you what it means to choose the right products that super-serve your audience.

How SPI Started with Affiliate Marketing

Smart Passive Income wouldn’t be what it is and the level it’s at without affiliate marketing. Since I started doing affiliate marketing back in 2010 I’ve generated over $3.5 million from affiliate revenue alone. It became the cornerstone of my business, before I started creating my own products and courses. I’ve learned so much along the way, from the dangers of affiliate marketing to the best approach to choose the products you want to promote.

I started, failed, and succeeded with affiliate marketing so you can just focus on the succeeding part.
