About Marion Black

Hi, it's great to meet you, my name is Marion and I live in Adelaide Australia. I'm a mother of two and grandmother of four. No great-grandies yet! ?

Everyone should have a "main hustle" and a "side hustle". My main hustle is affiliate marketing. My side hustle is creating video courses. "The Plan" is to make my side hustle my main hustle.

If you don't like your "main hustle" then develop your "side hustle" to the point where it can become your "main hustle" and ditch your job.

I love my main hustle but I love my side hustle even more.


I'm an entrepreneur

I started earning money while I was at primary school running errands for elderly and infirm neighbors. Posting a letter here and buying milk and bread there. And they paid me a few pennies, whatever they could afford. 

That's how most successful businesses work. Define a problem and provide the solution. The problem was that these neighbors were unable to do their own day-to-day shopping and I provided the simple solution of doing it for them. They were happy with my services so they paid me.

I launched my first "real" business (using advertising in the local newspaper) when I was a teenager. About 55 years ago. In those days just about everyone had Venetian blinds (with horizontal slats) and our neighborhood was mainly dirt roads which raised a lot of dust and grime. Venetian blinds got dirty quickly and needed cleaning. So I roped my mother into harness and we started cleaning Venetian blinds. Problem solved.

Fast forward to today and the problems that I'm solving are internet related. People buy stuff online and sometimes they get sucked into buying the wrong stuff. I've made it my mission to advise and help people by researching products and services and forming an opinion as to whether they are a good or not so good investment. Check out my reviews. I only recommend stuff that I think is worth getting. If I believe something is a scam, or a bit dodgy, then I'll let you know. Even when I'm offered a commission to promote something, if it's dodgy then I'll say so. I refuse to compromise my integrity.

My Video Tutorials

These days I get a buzz from creating tutorials and videos about WordPress and affiliate marketing. Please check out my training section at Wealthy Affiliate and the Popular Topics on this website.

If you need any extra help just leave a message in the comments section below. I'm always happy to respond. If I don't know the answer to your question then I'll point you in the right direction.

  1. Hi Marion
    I am also part of the Wealthy Affiliate membership. I appreciate all your training videos.

    It’s simple and so easily to follow. This is my way of saying thank you for literally holding my hand when I started out.

    Warmest regards

  2. I am always surprised, and sometimes annoyed, when I serendipitously discover people who have expertise that I would not have discovered by search.
    I have a question: My thought is to have “main” website that would be a publisher. Each niche I enter would be a subdomain with it own landing pages for various products as well as related blog content. Each sub domain would be SEO ranked separately. The idea is that, over time, the main site would develop a brand. A trusted destination and provider/promoter of products.
    Does this make sense?

  3. Wow, Marion I love this site! I really thought the “Affiliate Marketing Mistakes” area was super helpful — as well as other pages of this site. I’ll definitely be frequenting this site when I have questions about my own affiliate marketing strategies. Thanks so much for this!

  4. This about me page reveals a lot about the kind of person you are. And very helpful is an understatement. As you REALLY helped me a lot when I was with wealthy affiliate. Your trainings were priceless Marion.
