I’ve mentioned in the past that 96% of affiliates fail before they ever make their first $1 online.
I’ve also said that making money with an affiliate website is an almost-guaranteed venture.
Which one is it?
Let me explain.
When I start a new website, I’m 99% sure it will eventually make a profit.
The reason for such a high rate of failure is because people give up too soon.
If you can afford the $100 a year to keep your site running, then even if your site is a bust, you are pretty much guaranteed to make that $100 back – eventually.
If you follow the instructions in my niche-picking guide, you can make that back with just 2 sales a year!
But why would you want to go through all the effort of building a website, to only make $100 a year?
You don’t, and you shouldn’t.
If you only want to make an extra $100 a year, then I would advise you NOT to get into affiliate marketing as there are far quicker ways to do that.
The reason I’m pointing this out is to show you that yes; affiliate websites can almost-always produce a profit.
How much and how quickly is really up to you, but there’s nothing stopping you from making $100 a year, $100 a month or even $100 a day and more.
The truth is, going from $100 a year to $100 a day doesn’t involve as much work as you may think.
In some cases, it comes down to having patience and simply letting your site “mature”.
I’ve had dead-sites that *suddenly* come to life and start making 10X their yearly revenue in a month.
It happens – and it’s a beautiful thing when it does.
One other important element is knowing what you are doing.
Anyone can make a $100 a year online, but making $100+ a day requires you to know what you’re doing.
Many start with high expectations but lack the clarity of how to get there.
This is why for the past 5 years I have been recommending Wealthy Affiliate as the perfect starting point for all beginners.

If you treat affiliate marketing as a business, it will pay you as a business.
If you treat it as a way to get-rich-quick, then you will fail before you ever make your first $1.
See the difference?
With that said, I will firmly stand by my claim that yes; affiliate websites are a guaranteed income.
I’ll leave you to it.
