Affiliate Marketing for Seniors: How to Build a Website

Affiliate Marketing for Seniors

How to Build a Website

If you're a senior looking to fund all the things you are looking forward to in your golden years, and wondering if affiliate marketing is the path to do it, please take a look at Is Affiliate Marketing the Ideal Side Hustle for Seniors?

There are a number of steps required to get there, but none of them are beyond you, especially if you have a mentor to help you on the journey.

At 80 years of age in 2024, I understand where you're coming from. I have 30 online businesses that fund my retirement and, while I don't expect you to do the same, all you really need are one or two, and I can certainly help you to achieve that.

The first step that often throws seniors looking to start an affiliate marketing business is the necessity to build a website. Do you really need one.

And the simple answer is yes. It's the platform that your online affiliate marketing business will be built on.

Here are the simple steps to get going.

Step 1. Join Wealthy Affiliate for Free

Click on the link Wealthy Affiliate Free Membership and join for free. No traps, no gimmicks and no credit card required.

Wealthy Affiliate is a training platform that teaches you how to become an affiliate marketer with an extensive program of step-by-step video and text lessons.

They also provide you with a domain name, web hosting and support from a world-wide community of others on the same journey as you.

Step 2. Decide if Wealthy Affiliate Is for You

The idea of the free starter membership is to give you a practical taste of what Wealthy Affiliate offers. After exploring what's available to you as a starter member, make a decision. If you decide not to pursue a paid membership, my advice is to leave now and chase up other ways to supplement your retirement income. However, if you decide to grab this opportunity to build your own online business ...

Step 3. Upgrade to Wealthy Affiliate's Premium Membership

Affiliate Marketing for Seniors Do You Need a Website

Wealthy Affiliate has three membership levels, namely Starter (Free), Premium and Premium Plus.

You don't need Premium Plus at this stage, so join as a Premium member.

It costs just $49 a month (or $499 for the full year).

It's an investment in your future self and arguably the best you'll ever make.

And in one way, it's your introduction to how affiliate marketing works. You see, when you joined up using my link Wealthy Affiliate Free Membership, my affiliate link was automatically used. When you upgraded to Premium, Wealthy Affiliate automatically credited me with an affiliate commission, as my reward for bringing a new member into the WA community.

It's a win-win-win situation.

You win in two ways.

  1. You now have access to the best affiliate marketing training in the world, along with a free domain name and web hosting and
  2. You have me as your Wealthy Affiliate sponsor and mentor. I will be devoted to ensuring that you are successful.

I win, because I've been paid an affiliate commission (which is what this training is all about).

The Wealthy Affiliate community wins, with the acquiring of you as a new member who will (eventually) contribute to helping other new members.

Step 4. Choose Your Niche

Your niche is just what your business will be all about.

I examine the factors involved in choosing your ideal niche in Affiliate Marketing for Seniors Work Flow.

Step 5. Register a Domain Name

In Wealthy Affiliate, go to Websites >> Site Domains and register a .com domain name relevant to your niche.

When you get to the checkout, use Credits to "pay" for the domain name. These credits were automatically assigned to you when you upgraded to Premium.

Step 6. Build the Website

Honestly, you'll wonder why this ever held any fears for you.

In Wealthy Affiliate, go to Websites >> Site Builder and choose "Domain I Own". Select the domain you've just registered, enter a name for your website (can be changed later, so not important) and select the first theme on offer.

Click the Build My Website button and sit back while Wealthy Affiliate performs its magic.

It takes less than a minute. And you thought it was hard!

Of course, this isn't a money-making website.

Not yet!

But it is a website and it exists on the internet. Pretty soon, Googlebot will find it and add it to the Google database. Wealthy Affiliate will let you know when that happens.

Your job now, as someone wanting affiliate marketing for seniors to provide a substantial income, is to create content that attracts visitors, capture their names and email addresses to build a list of prospects and become an affiliate for vendors providing quality products in your niche.

I'll cover all this in future articles.

Phil is a septuagenarian who has now funded his retirement through internet marketing.

"It's both enjoyable and lucrative," says Phil. "and can literally be run from anywhere in the world with an Internet connection. Like many others out there, I initially poured money into the bright, shiny pebbles. The one off, brilliant opportunities that promised an overnight income with the push of a button. The only thing they did, besides suck up funds like a vacuum cleaner, money that I couldn't afford, was take up so much time that I ended up depressed as well as poorer. It wasn't until I learned how to build a genuine business (I now have 30 of them) in both affiliate marketing and e-commerce, using the platform and tools that I tell you about on this website, that I turned it all around. I now make a substantial and sustainable retirement income and I want to teach you how to do the same."
