Welcome to Living the Retiree Lifestyle
Hello, my name is Kevin Lundquist and I’m so glad that you stopped by. If you want to start an online business of your own involving a blog and affiliate promotion to make passive income but don’t know where to begin, then this site is for you.
I’ve spent 38 years my life helping people to be successful, not only in their careers, but in life. Now I want to teach you the skills that I’ve learned in how to create passive income to supplement your salary and your lifestyle. My philosophy in life is to help others as you would want them to help you, in other words, I want to make a difference in your life.
First, what is Passive Income?
My definition of passive income:
Building online businesses that use automation to allow transactions, cash flow and growth to happen without requiring your physical presence.
In other words, we don’t trade time for money. Instead, we invest our time upfront creating valuable websites, products and services. We work hard now in order to get the benefits later.
What passive income is NOT?
Let’s dispel some myths and set realistic expectations before we go any further.
Creating passive income is NOT easy, it takes a lot of dedicated work.
Nothing in life comes easy. Making money online is no different. Many of the internet marketers and online entrepreneurs that you run into will try to make you think differently. Why? Because they want to make money off of your ignorance. I’m here to tell you the truth: Online business is hard. I’ll do my best to lead you by example and give you the support you need, but I can’t force you to take action; that’s up to you.
Creating passive income does NOT happen overnight.
I don’t live, teach, or believe in get-rich-quick schemes. Creating a business takes time, regardless if it’s online or off. You have to set realistic goals and stick with them. I can show you all the steps, but you have to take them. I did it and you can do it too.
Generating passive income is NOT impossible.
Thousands of people are generating passive income on the internet, with new people coming onboard every day. The retiree lifestyle is possible, and I want you to have it. Persistence and perseverance WILL pay off.
Second, what is Affiliate Marketing?
My simple definition of affiliate marketing:
Selling or marketing another individual’s or company’s products or services for a commission. We become an “affiliate” for this individual or company.
Most of the people and companies on the internet today selling products or memberships offer an affiliate program where you simply sign up to offer their products or services for a predetermined commission. It’s that simple!
Receive up to 50% commissions.
How can this be? Someone has done a lot of work to create something and then they’re going to give me half of what they make just for selling it for them? YES
In today’s world of internet selling, otherwise known as marketing, the goal is to get the product or service in front of as many potential customers as possible. They do this through their army of affiliates who each promote to their circle of trust or influence. You provide them the reach and exposure of their product or service to people that may have never seen it and thus never had the opportunity to purchase it.
Recurring payments each month.
The gold nugget for us as affiliate marketers is to find products or services that not only offer high commissions, but are also recurring, which gives us long-term passive income. Memberships sites or subscriptions to routine publications are a couple examples.
The four phases of the Affiliate Business Model
Let’s look at how to efficiently and effectively build your affiliate marketing business. The four “S’s” you’ll need as a foundation for your new business.
This is our plan of attack for producing sales through our affiliate link on our website, Facebook page, via a twit, or whatever else we can conceive.
This is where we make the crucial decisions on the market, or niche, we’re going to use and a product or service to promote as an affiliate. In this phase we’ll also select our domain name and start doing our keyword research.
In this phase we’ll setup our website, blog, and/or social media accounts. We’ll also start building our list of clients to market to.
Selling is where you’ll spend the majority of your time. In this phase you’ll promote your affiliate link to a targeted audience of potential clients. There’s a many ways to accomplish this and we’ll be covering the ones that I’ve found to be effective.

I can tell you from experience where you'll be if you don't TAKE ACTION NOW and charge the course of your life.
I hope that you’ll join me on this adventure.
