Basically I was laid off from my job recently, I made $3300 a month am now on unemployment insurance receiving about $1700 a month for the next 9 months. Basically my income has been reduced significantly and Im in the process of finding another job.
However, before being laid off I had been dabbling into reading here and there about Amazon affiliate websites and how some people that invest a good bit of time into these sites end up making pretty good money. Basically I'm interested and Ive got lots of free time at the moment and I want to start today and dedicate all my time. But I am skeptical...
So my question today is do people actually make a living this way? Or is it just a bunch of hard work and effort to make a few hundred bucks a month? I have read all around and everyone has something different to say. A lot of websites and blogs push the idea, but I also realize that they are offering programs of their own which revolve around the concept that you can get rich off of the amazon affiliate program. Then there are the people who bash the idea and say you'll never make more than a few hundred bucks max and you are better off spending your time on something else.
As I mentioned off the get go at the moment I have a lot of spare time. I can invest a great deal of time and energy into this at the moment because I no longer have a job. Before I get started down this long road though, I just wanted to ask the question, do these sites really make people the money they say they do or is it all just one big hype?
Thanks for your guys time, and again, sorry if this has been asked many times!
