How I made $1500 in Less than 3 Months with Affiliate Program

Making money from Affiliates takes some time…You cannot expect to make money in a fortnight or instantly.

  1. Hi Abhishek,

    Congrats on your success with Media Net. I’ve heard so many bloggers talk about it, but to tell you the truth, I haven’t really looked into it.

    Sounds like you’ve done very well with it. I like how you say you can’t expect to make money right away with affiliate marketing.

    That’s so true, it does take time. Thanks for sharing this, have a great day 🙂


  2. Hi Abhishek,
    I sign up for affiliate program, but on my dashboard, I don`t see any programs to sign up. It`s empty page. Also, I cannot find my referral link. Can you help me?

    • Jelena,

  3. Hi there, I’ve just joined the affiliate program however the ad banners/codes would not upload into wordpress. I’ve tried several times but it wouldn’t work. I have had no problems with other code and banners.
    Am I doing something wrong? Please advise.
    Thanks in advance,


  4. There is no referral code available on my dashboard. As you mentioned in above comment, “it would take around 48 hours,” so I’ll wait. Thanks to Jelena for asking the same question that I wanted to ask! It saved my time. And, also, thank you Abhishek Dey for this information!

    • You can find the banners and codes in the “Programs” tab on affiliate account! Makesure you have applied for the affiliate acccount and not the publisher account
