In light of recent events and that which happens more often than we all know, I wanted to remind people how to pay for your WA Membership from your online endeavors. It is only $47 per month or $1.57 per day. I am pretty sure you could save $1.57 each day, maybe give up your Starbucks or going out to eat a couple of times a week.

If you want to be successful in business you need to make sacrifices. Those who have been doing this for a year or less, creating your website and waiting for it to grow and gain traffic through search engine rankings, just know that making money from your website will be slow at first.

HOW SOON WILL I MAKE ENOUGH MONEY

This is a question that many ask but it is impossible to give an accurate answer. Everything depends on how well you do what you do, how hard you work at it, and how much patience you have. If you come into this thinking that in 6 months you will be raking in the money, you better wake up from that dream.

If you are not looking into this online business as a long term strategy of at least a year before you start making some form of consistent money, then you need to start thinking like that. What you also need is to diversify your approach in making your money online.

I didn’t start making money until 5 and a half months after starting. I believe Kyle said it took him 3+ months and others have taken less and longer. The point is if you need money to pay your bills and your WA membership, you better find an alternate way while waiting for your website to become profitable.

ALTERNATE WAYS TO MAKE MONEY ONLINE

I have written blogs and training here at WA outlining legitimate ways that anyone of you can make extra money online. The picture above is proof positive that it can be done. This is an image of my PayPal account for a content writing gig I did for a company called Big Deal Bargains LLC.

All I did was to find a company (or individual) that was looking for someone to do some freelance content writing, and apply for that job. I go into further detail and provide the link to the freelance writing job database I used and still use to find writing gigs I do from home, on this training tutorial below.

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/how-to-ea...

Then of course there is the other way we ALL can make money here at WA, and you do not need to be in Boot Camp or actively promoting WA. I explain how every member of WA can do this and even make their WA Premium membership to become free in the training tutorial below.

Hi Robert,

Thanks for pointing to that freelance site. I like writing and perhaps I could find something there that I could be of service to.

Another thing - I like it that you are honest in saying how long it took you to make money from your website. We need to set realistic expectations while continue to work because things online are not as they used to be.

Thanks Rob!

As far as I know payment is either done directly via a credit card or through PayPal. Any other way would be on a one-on-one basis and that would be determined by Kyle and Carson.

Thanks Robert, The article is great. I am a starter at WA and new on IM. Through the level 1 training last 3 days, I am more of internet more than years before. WA community shaped by Kyle and Carson and continued to be drive like many of you has made this possible and excite me to spend more that 3 hours, which was my initial though. Revenue is important, but being able to tell my colleges today on IM and showing of my About Me page, in draft has been awesome. In WA, what I have seen so far, if you have the right mindset and attitude and commitment, you get more than the money worth, of course I will make over what time it take me. To your continue success..Jack

Thanks Robert for this very inspiring article. Really appreciate this. Now I know that I will need to endure for at least 6 mths to see the results for my website. My site is just about 2 months ++ starting. So I'll assume that it is a normal thing for most people to not make any sales in the early stage. I'll look forward for your Alternate Ways to Make Money afterwards. Cause I really need to find an extra income stream to cover my premium membership :D
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
Yes, it is normal for you not to make money within the first couple of months. No one does. Anyone that says they did or do is most likely lying. None of the online millionaires and billionaires I have heard of ever made any money in the first 2 monhs.

Your training here at WA is your best answer because not only will it give you the ability to gorow your website which is your future money maker, but it gives you knowledge you can use in the outside world. There are lots of companies and people looking for people who know how to do keyword research, SEO, WordPress design, and content writing, all of which you learn how to do here.

Thanks a lot Robert for sharing your ideas and insights on how to pay our WA memberships. I wish I can write as well as you, so that I can have the confidence to to apply for a writing job too. But alas, English is not even my first language, therefore I don't even have much confidence to begin with. After 6 months, I've started to earn a couple of dollars here and there. Nothing to shout about but I guess we have to start somewhere right? Looking forward for more great post from you Robert :-)

You are welcome Dominic. Making money online will always start out slow and low. Six months is not really a long time, give it another 6 months and just keep practicing and applying your knowledge.

There are many other ways to make money online other than writing and there are also many websites that are in different languages. Don't think that everything has to be in english.

It is awesome, but I see at freelance you bid for the job meaning the highest bidder gets the job or hoe?

No not really. Freelance is you applying for a writing job. There is no bidding going on. Yes there are some writing outlets like eLance and oDesk that make you bid on writing gigs, but I avoid those and apply to actual companies or individuals looking for writing work.

Thank you Steve. Making money online whether it be by your own website, from taking the knowledge you gain here at WA and applying it outside to writing gigs like I mention above, or earning money from WA itself, is available to us all.

People just need to go and make it happen. Yes it will take away some more of your time, but in order to succeed we must make sacrifices.

I hope my ideas help to inspire people to take action and find alternate ways to make money to pay for their WA membership, if they do not have a lot of funds to see it through. Like Kyle has said in some of his training, at WA "you can earn while you learn."

roamy Premium
Thanks so much for this Robert."In light of recent events" well,i`d say maybe some of us came here unprepared, if I can pay 1 year, what will stop me from paying the 2nd year unless I plan on leaving?
On the 1st year, I pay for what I'm not so sure about, on the 2nd year upgrade, I'm paying for a product i know.
With my yearly membership, I have 12 full months to prepare, maybe save a dollar here and here making adjustments to my needs.
An offline business dont bring profits in a year,we should not expect our websites to do either, instead, anyone who wants to continue upgraded membership monthly or yearly should prepare on time give up whatever luxury is there to give up.
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
You are welcome Roamy. I agree that many people arrive here with the idea that within a few months or a year they can be quite successful. And I think a lot of that stems from the lies that scams have been feeding people of quick riches online.

But anyone, if they think logically about it, should be able to realize that you MUST budget and sacrifice if you one day want to be successful. You must ask yourself, how much do I really want to succeed? If you are not willing to give up things that cost money that you do not need, then you really do not want success.

There is a saying by an Unknown Author which I live by that says...

"ENTREPRENEURSHIP is living a few years of your life like most people won't, so that you can spend the rest of your life like most people can't.

Great reminder Robert. In any business you have to set money aside to pay bills, like rent, power, ect. Starting a business without any budget or startup cash is the American dream, but doesn't happen everyday in the real world.

You and other members here at WA have offered common sense ways of either saving, or earning money to keep your business going until it starts paying for itself. I have read that most brick and mortar business take on adverage 10 years to profit, and a large percent of those loose money and close their doors. The ones that profit work off a budget and understand the cost of starting a business.

And in the early days of the internet it took Jeff Bezos 2 years just to get Amazon to break even and then another 5 years to be 100% profitable. Now he is a Billionaire and Amazon is a global company.

You have to budget if you are going to survive starting a new business and in many cases you need to diversify. Amazon is a prime example of diversification. Amazon started out as just selling books and now look how much they have changed.

I''m just gonna throw this out there with a little tongue-in-cheek, but it puts a perspective on the cost of WA....

Can you find 15-20 empty pop/beer cans or bottles to turn in a day?

Reply
boomergp08 Premium
You are welcome Lorna. I am sure you can find ways to sacrifice something or sell something to get $47. Like I said, it's just $1.57 per day. Going out to dinner once for one person can cost 10 times as much.

Another thing to consider. If you can find a way to pay $359 for the yearly membership, you will be saving $205. The yearly cost comes out to be about $29.62 per month. And by paying yearly you do not have the worry about making a payment every month.

I enjoy it too but often get stumped when searching for these data bases. So many seem to be pointed to US writers only. Probably my imagination that this is so.
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
Some are pointed toward U.S. writers but I would say that is at most 50%. Any writing gig that is labeled as an "Anywhere" or a "Remote" location will basically mean that a writer can be from anywhere in the world, as long as they write in English.

It is amazing how much money one can save by just making a couple of small sacrifices. I save a ton of money by not eating out or driving much. Seeing how I like to cook and work from home, I save much on both of those expenses.

Yes, I was thinking about the yearly plan yesterday. At the moment I am on the monthly plan. The only issue that might arise by going yearly is that I might suddenly find I didn't have the money to pay for it when it next comes up. But maybe I should commit, and by doing that, commit to earning enough within the year to more than pay for it.
Reply

If you can wait until the end of November to go yearly, WA always have a Black Friday weekend price special where you can save $60 off of the yearly and pay only $299. Plus you will be locked into that price because you will be renewing during the price special every year.
