I said I was done with affiliate marketing on WAPH, and that’s true. I have some referral links I’m happy to share privately but I don’t want this blog tainted with affiliate links.

However, I’m always on the hunt for passive income sources. I currently have more time than money, so I decided to give affiliate marketing another try.
I created a fresh website called wfh office.
There are several reasons for selling these products and writing this content:
The affiliate marketing products
Everyone knows Amazon and this is an Amazon store.
I’ve upgraded to https just to there isn’t any question, but any item you click on goes through Amazon.
This is what I’m excited about. I’m going to write about freelancing, obviously, but other things as well and the doors are open for anyone who’s interested in guest posting. I would also like to guest post on other sites. I think this has the potential to be a great opportunity to expand my portfolio in both writing and SEM while at the same time give bylines and links back to people trying to get a start in the freelancing game.
Anyone who’s an Amazon affiliate knows that if you don’t get some sales cranking in the first few months, you get booted from the program. This scares me.
I don’t wanna get booted. I just got here…
A lot of people hate on affiliate marketing. Hell, I’m one of them. But I worked my ass off to get this site up and running and looking pretty. I’m extremely proud of it. Building websites, at least in my opinion, is fun and easy and makes for a fairly inexpensive hobby.
The upside to affiliate marketing
There is no limit to how many websites I can make. If I can get this site off the ground and bringing in some cash, I can use that cash to make more websites and explore other interests, such as drop shipping and exploring other side-gig opportunities like uber driving.
It’s so easy for people to say “click on this link”
Not for me. I hate asking people for money and I hate trying to be a salesman, which is another reason I’m proud of this site. I’m stepping way the hell out of my comfort zone right now.
To date, I’ve made the site, set up with the Amazon program, got my Twitter –@wfhoffice , Facebook, and Pinterest accounts set up. I hate Pinterest and Facebook so that part grated on my nerves a bit.
I want to set up some automation because it’s time to focus on what I have the most interest in:
- Creating content
I’m a marketing nerd. So now that the bs is out of the way I can geek out on the fun stuff.
How is wfh office affecting my job?
Negatively. Honestly. However, my job is production based. I can work whenever I want, as much as I want, and there is no cap. So right now I”m losing a bit of cash by spending extra time on wfh office, but it’s not that big of a deal.
I’m still adjusting to some massive lifestyle changes. So throwing a small wrench amongst larger wrenches can’t hurt that much.
Aside from all of the stuff I’m excited about, there is one more scary tactic I’m going to try. I don’t like putting my voice and face on the internet. However, a good friend of mine has had some success with her YouTube channel so I might try to do some basic videos on things like “How to set up a portfolio”, etc…
I have no idea if the YouTube thing will ever reach fruition. It’s at the bottom of the list. But you guys will be the first to know if it ever comes to light.
So that’s what I’ve been up to. Reason 1315313513 I’ve been kinda quiet lately. I love WAPH and I love everyone who reads it and is following me on my pf journey.
I’m hoping wfh office pans out. It will likely be part of my journal entries from here on out. Because who doesn’t love a good old-fashioned passive income report?
Thanks for being so patient with me and excusing my lack of twittering.
