Learn to Make Money from your Passions – I Can Help You

Last Update: April 01, 2018

Wouldn’t it be great to be able to make money from home by just recommending to others the things you really like? This simple concept can even take place while you sleep. No, this is not fantasy. This is reality!

This is how many people with their own websites and blogs are making lots of money. If you want to learn to make money from your passions, becoming a Free Member of Wealthy Affiliate is the best way to start.

PROFITABLE PASSION AND HOBBY NICHES

We all have something we really like or enjoy doing. Being that it is now baseball season, I enjoy going to games in New York at Yankee Stadium. Though it can be an expensive experience, I don’t mind treating myself.

And now that the weather is getting warmer I will be hitting the local NJ and NY hiking trails wearing my favorite waterproof hiking boots. I really like how I can trek through a shallow mountain stream and not get wet.

Then I will return home for a relaxing evening, building my Legos Star Wars X-wing model while drinking fresh carrot and apple juice I made in my juicer. All of these passions and hobbies I can make money on. How?


PAYMENT FOR MY RECOMMENDATIONS

As an affiliate marketer I can have multiple websites that promote different niches. Though it is always important to start building with just one website at a time, once the website is mostly complete I can start another.

Let us say my first website was about the history of both the original and new Yankee Stadiums. On this website I could not just reveal facts and trivia about the stadiums, but I could also offer relevant baseball products.

These could be collectible photos and pieces of the old stadium. I could also promote other NY Yankees related items including jerseys, caps and souvenir-type products. How will people be able to purchase these?

Through my affiliate links that I freely receive from various baseball affiliate programs like those of the MLB Shop and Modell’s Sporting Goods websites. I place these links in my website content promoting the Yankees.

By writing content on the history of the stadiums and promoting what a great experience it is for baseball fans around the world to witness, I can RECOMMEND associated products through my affiliate links.

When someone reading my blog becomes excited to own the products I am recommending, they click on the link, go to the shopping cart of the website I am affiliated with, make the purchase, and I get paid a commission.


IT IS AN EASY MONEY MAKING PROCESS

I can repeat the same affiliate marketing process and create another website about the different hiking trails I have tried in the NY and NJ area. On this website I could offer tips and historical facts about the trails.

In addition I could recommend different kinds of waterproof hiking boots, backpacks, cargo pants and shorts, plus other related items. Again I would place affiliate links in my content and get a commission for each sale.

This is how affiliate marketing works, and I could do the same with my other passions and hobbies I listed above. Though the process is simple, there are things you need to learn and be a part of in order to succeed.

Being a member of Wealthy Affiliate will give you EVERYTHING you need for success, except your own time and hard work to achieve your goals. For many who are new to affiliate marketing, it may seem difficult.

Fortunately, the way the training is designed at WA, even a complete beginner with no real computer skills can achieve their goals. The process of making money online is simple, and WA members have an advantage.


That advantage is not just the top-notch easy training, but also the help and support of the entire community. When I started in 2013, I needed that help to guide me. Now that I am making money, I return the favor.

I do this by answering questions, offering suggestions, helping with keywords, providing niche ideas, and creating complimentary training tutorials. This helps me to give back to the community that has helped me.

My latest tutorial focuses on the profitable Passion and Hobby niche markets. I give recommendations on not just niche ideas but also associated affiliate programs for each niche. You can read it at the link below.

I've been here at WA a little over 2 months now. I have 3 websites.

When do you think a website is developed enough to move to creating the next site?

How often do you update with new content the older sites to keep them active?

My plan was to keep working these 3 sites until they are productive.

Does that sound like a good plan?

The most experienced members of WA suggest even that we concentrate on just one website in order to make it work and earn money. When it starts earning, proceed with other sites. It's not very likely that you will have enough time and energy and creative ideas to develop three at the same time. Though, people are different. Maybe you can.:)
Reply
dchapman3 Premium
Thanks for the advise. I currently write 3 post per week, one for each site. I seem to be able to keep up with this.

Thanks for the insight
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
Personally I could not handle creating three at the same time. Like Kyle says in his training, one website at a time is enough.

Doing more than one at the same time will actually slow down your earnings because you really need to have about two dozen posts for Google to start pushing you up in the rankings.

It's not enough. You will need to engage social media to help get traffic to the site, do a lot of research. Some of your articles should be really deep , and you can't last long on your current knowledge. Again, comments, sites' updates, products reviews. Big work really.
But of course, do whatever you feel is right.:)

Yes, it's very much about focusing on one thing and making it better and better.Another thing is if you understand the direction is wrong and you need to change it, but it's different.:)

I created my 1st site during the certification training, then I started my 2nd one after completion. I then created my 3rd when I started Bootcamp to champion WA.

I have been seeing real progress with my 1st website and my 3rd one. I will probably concentrate on those two mainly.

I have been engaging social media daily to promote these sites.

This is really good advice and I haven't heard before the number of post google is looking for to really started boosting your site. Very helpful.

As life is a series of adjustments, so will my efforts to concentrate on getting better at this thing called affiliate marketing.

Advise from the more experienced is invaluable to a beginner such as me.

thanks so much!

You are welcome. Just make sure you have dozens of posts that are no less than 1,000 words long.

Ideally it should be closer to 2,000 because the more in depth the post, the more Google will like it.

But don't stuff your posts with meaningless fluff content to reach a higher word count. Google will see right through your efforts to do that.

Affiliate Marketing 101 explained simply.

Very concrete and valuable explanation of how affiliate links work on your website, on how to only link related associated products to your blog posts, and how commissions are earned when the visitor clicks your link and purchases the affiliate program's product or service.

Nice and easy presentation Robert!
