Though there are multiple legit ways to earn income on the internet, the best way to make money online at home is to help people find what they are searching for. Billions of people go up onto Google and the other search engines to find answers to their questions. You can tap into this and make money from these people. How?

BECOME AN AFFILIATE MARKETER

Affiliate marketing is by far the easiest and least expensive way I have found for generating substantial revenue on the internet. Sure there are other easy and free ways to earn money, but the majority are survey or pay per click ad sites that only pay you enough per month to fill your car with gas a couple of times, if that.

But when you become an affiliate marketer in a niche of your choosing, the process of making money can be fun and more rewarding, especially in the long run. The biggest hurdle to overcome when starting your affiliate marketing journey, other than your determination to succeed, is choosing a niche to build your online business around.

WHAT IS A NICHE?

Quite simply it is a defined segment of the world’s population that is interested in a particular product, service or experience. Do you have an interest in smartphone technology like the new iPhone X, pronounced iPhone 10, or Samsung’s latest? Well that puts you into the smartphone niche. Are you a Star Wars fan? Then you partake in the Star Wars niche.

Anything that you enjoy or are passionate about that other people are interested in can be considered a niche. But once you find a niche that you want to base your affiliate marketing business on you will want to narrow the focus of your niche down to a specific category like iPhone accessories or Star Wars costumes.

FREE TO JOIN & LOW OPERATING COST

One of the many reasons why this is the best way to make money online at home has to do with its very low cost to build and run your business. Every legitimate affiliate marketing program is free to join and there are thousands of them to join. Plus the cost to start, learn, build and operate your affiliate marketing business is low cost, but only at one place.

Though there are a few legit affiliate marketing training programs on the internet, only Wealthy Affiliate will give you EVERYTHING YOU NEED to succeed. There is no need to go anywhere else for whatever you need to create an effective affiliate marketing website. All the training, tools, resources, hosting, help and support is all on one website.

NO UPSELLS REQUIRED

This all-inclusive training and business building platform is very much like an online university where you can learn at your own pace. But unlike other training programs, you can begin for free and build 2 websites within a couple of minutes without having to program them yourself. Another nice thing about Wealthy Affiliate is the lack of upsells.

Most other training programs will charge you extra for additional training and support services. At Wealthy Affiliate everything is included and there are only two price options when you join, Free or $49.00 per month. Even the first month is at a discount for only $19.00, and to make things even sweeter they have a yearly payment for $359.00 USD.

BEGIN YOUR DREAM HERE AT WA

Once you become a member of Wealthy Affiliate you will have everything you need at your fingertips. The only thing that will determine your success will be YOU. If you do not take action and follow the training, you will not succeed. If you do not begin the process of getting your websites going, you will not succeed. You get out of this what you put in.

There is no such a thing as a legit get rich quick online opportunity. Only those who learn the proper steps like those taught here at WA, and then take actions on those steps, will eventually see results. Like Nietzsche said, "He who would learn to fly one day must first learn to stand and walk and run and climb and dance; one cannot fly into flying."

If you are reading this and you are not yet a member of this amazingly helpful community, you will not find a better offer for getting your own online marketing business up and running. If you are already a member, continue to take action on the training and work hard towards your goals. If you need help selecting a niche, see the link below.

I am getting ready to sign for my first affiliate program...I am thinking Amazon...anything I should be aware of?

I am using Amazon (just for 2 weeks). I already have a couple of orders from it. I had no problem getting set up on my page. Not sure 2 weeks is enough time, but thus far I like it.

Best of luck,

That's great! Just make sure you have enough helpful content to support your niche. But Amazon is one of the easier affiliate programs to become affiliated with.

I use Amazon and other affiliate programs, as there are better commission to be had.
You can have more than one affiliate program on you site.

Just read the restrictions in the affiliate agreement. You can be dropped if you don’t make sales in a certain time frame and you it family can’t purchase through your link.

I think that in the beginning of your affiliate marketing life that sentiment can get a bit lost. I know it did for me. Being helpful to your audience is the best way to build up trust so that they WANT to buy a product you are promoting! Alanna

This is true and when you make your approach to help before sell, you will find that you will sell more from the help you give first.

Robert ,

this is a great blog. You’ve got me change my perceptIon of niche- as I thought it only revolve around my passion as I do a lot of engineering research that nobody would buy.
So my area of niche can be quite boring and it doesn’t allow me to sell in a mass market unless I change to something the consumer is demanding.
I looked the handphone segment - it can be quite interested to form a niche on that but again it is quite a saturated market.
Hopefully, I can find my niche by end of this week as I want to hit it into the mass market during Good Friday.

John.

That is another reason people make it hard for themselves when choosing a niche. Never think a niche is saturated because if you can make your website better than someone else's, you can still make money. Saturation doesn't make that much of a difference.
