There is no program that does magic tricks or makes people wealthy unless THEY seriously work at it. When you see words used like ‘easy’ or ‘fast’ you must be logical about these because both are subjective – What you think is easy I may think is hard – or what you call fast I may think is slow.
Affiliate marketing programs do a lot to help you get started and most provide several different kinds of resources toward that end. However nobody has the responsibility to make it work for you except YOU! Whether or not the program ‘works' for you depends on how much effort over time you are willing to invest. Nobody can guarantee your success. Success is about what YOU do with everything over time to develop your business!
If you have some money you can pay for services to help you with the work in building an affiliate marketing business from home online. If not then you need to do your own marketing and advertising. You will generally find that using the Internet is 10 times cheaper, faster and easier than anything you can do offline – for example you don’t need supplies or equipment like paper, ink, postage, or printers to send sales advertising messages to your prospects.
In either case you would however, need a mechanism to capture leads online to send your messages to and/or you can pay for list building services. In general a combination of both usually works best as capturing leads can take a long time, although they are typically more interested than those on a purchased list. The list of course is much faster and easier if you have some money to invest.
Although working from home online is a great deal more enjoyable just in that you make your own rules about what time you work, how long you work and even how you do things, it is still, none the less, work. Not sure really how people get the impression that they can become wealthy by osmosis or just by joining a program that somebody else earned substantial income from. Certainly that points to the possibility existing, in that someone more or less just like you succeeded – and so it follows that you can do the same! (That is if you work as much and as long as they did).
There are usually no excuses to fail – It is really pretty simple – If you want to earn money, you need to do the work and spend the time. In fact you have to remain very engaged in your business at all times. If you slack off in your efforts or sit back resting on your laurels and wait, you may wait a very long time for nothing to ever happen. You and you alone are responsible for either your own success or your own failure. Just like real life!
