How to Make Money Online Now with Wealthy Affiliate - $7200 November

Last Update: December 04, 2018

How to Make Money Online Now with Wealthy Affiliate: It's all about Trust, Consistency, and Patience.

Thanks to the training and mentorship at Wealthy Affiliate, this is my commission check for the month of November 2018.


When I first began this process not quite 2 years ago I didn't think I could earn that amount of money passively through a website. I knew nothing about affiliate marketing, and I had never attempted to build an affiliate marketing website before.

It is proof positive that the training at Wealthy Affiliate not only delivers, but it is the best you'll find online, hands down.

I want to share with you the mindset you'll need to have to make money online now with Wealthy Affiliate and get the most out of your training. I want you to be so stubborn with your own success that you won't be able to fail.

Creating wealth online doesn't come about overnight. There is a system in place here at Wealthy Affiliate that absolutely delivers. Don't doubt that for a second. The key is being patient, trusting the training, and continuing to build your business.

Just like you can't build a rent home and expect to be making money when only the foundation is poured, in the same way you have to be patient as you build the foundation for your online business.


The training at Wealthy Affiliate teaches you 4 things:

  1. how to choose a profitable niche
  2. how to build an affiliate marketing website
  3. how to create quality content that is the answer to your target audience's searches
  4. and then how to turn that traffic into conversions and consistent monthly revenue.

Choose your niche according to things you're interested in. What's your passion? When you choose a niche you're interested in, you're a part of your target audience. This is how your audience will connect enthusiastically with your content.

Building your website is a breeze with WA's training. Don't worry if you've never built a website before. The training guides you through the process step by step. Not only will your site look great, but it will function with speed and precision and have a strong foundation for building into the future.

Start simple and build forward. Don't get caught up in aesthetics early on. Keep it simple and as you progress your site and its look will progress as well.

Traffic is the lifeblood to your online business. It's the foundation everything is built upon. And the major component to building traffic that so many get frustrated with is the time element.

Traffic takes time to build, but as it builds so will your commissions & so will your business.

It's natural early on to want that traffic to come quickly. You may find yourself always checking your traffic and getting frustrated when you're not seeing clicks. "What am I doing wrong?" you ask.

Don't worry. This is normal, but it isn't productive. Can you imagine going to the gym and after an hour of working out going back home to check your scale and check your results? Can you imagine doing this day in and day out? It wouldn't make sense to do that, right?

Trust the system. The training right here at Wealthy Affiliate ensures that your traffic is built the right way. It's not about cheating a system or buying traffic, it's about creating consistent quality content that reaches a larger and larger audience.

This is done methodically as you progress lesson by lesson through this training. You're guided step by step through keyword research, structuring your content properly, getting comments and gaining interactivity, and consistent publishing.

When you build your traffic with patience, the conversions and commissions will come. And it's not just about being patient, you need to be consistent with publishing quality content.

Instead of looking at your business in terms of time, look at it in terms of content. Don't judge your site by how long you've had it. Think in terms of how much quality content you have.


Are you publishing 2-3 articles every week? Are you doing good keyword research using Jaaxy to choose "low hanging fruit" keywords with low competition? Are you using the Site Comments tool at Wealthy Affiliate to get comments immediately after publishing? Are you sharing your content to social media?


Being proactive with your business is how you start connecting with your audience and building your traffic.

Every lesson and every task in this training guides you through every step of the process so that you're never alone. The first 10 lessons in Wealthy Affiliate's training help you to build that strong foundation you'll need for a business to last.

The course lessons after that dive you into the monetization process and scaling your business out.

Don't think that you're going to create a website, publish 10-15 posts, and be done with it while you wait for commissions to come in. If this was all it took, then everyone and their mom would have a successful online business.

You need to be stubborn with your success. You need to stay driven past the point of tiring out and becoming frustrated. Look at other members' success and see it as inspiration. The person posting his or her success story in their WA blog was in your exact same position once.

The one true constant is this: the training at Wealthy Affiliate consistently delivers. It does this year in and year out. This year's Super Affiliate Conference in Vegas will be the largest one to date and that is a testament to not only the training but to the leadership behind this company.

Will there be people who start and fail? Yes. Will there be people who attack the training and don't look back? Yes. Which group do you want to be in?

Stay driven. Stay stubborn. Work until you reach your goals. It's a great time to be a part of Wealthy Affiliate, and I couldn't be happier to be a part of this awesome community. Set your goals, and set them high.

You are going to be a Wealthy Affiliate success story.

Thank you, Eric, for these encouraging words. Just what I needed to hear.

I just renewed my WA premium membership. I am sad to say that during my first year with WA, I procrastinated, neglected my WA training, chased shiny objects outside of WA and lost way more money than can comfortably afford as I followed the "Internet Gurus" who promise quick riches.

The lesson that I learned from a wasted year is:
Avoid the "Gurus" like the plague, they do not care if you succeed, they only want your money.

The thing that makes WA different from the "Guru" is that Kyle and Carson really care and want every WA member to succeed. Kyle and Carson provide everything that we need to be successful. However, they cannot do the work for us, we must exercise self-discipline and "do the work" in order to be successful affiliate marketers.

The GOOD NEWS is that I am back on WA, picking up where I left off in the training, and I am publishing articles as often as I can. My goal this year is to publish 100,000 words of the highest quality that I possibly can.

Wow Eric! What a writer! This blog post is the stuff of inspiration!
When you wrote:
"When you build your traffic with patience, the conversions and commissions will come", it reminded me of the famous key phrase in the movie FIELD OF DREAMS: "IF YOU BUILD IT, THEY WILL COME" What an inspiration!
I absolutely loved it! I'm off and running. Gonna finish my training and keep on keepin' on!

Hey Eric, Thanks for sharing your inspiration. And this was largely when you were away travelling right?
So when travelling I take it you weren't publishing blog posts so often recently. So can I ask what proportion of your traffic forms from:
1. Social media
2. YouTube
3. Organic search
It is an awesome result and makes us all want to work harder, but in the right areas. It seems you publish quality content but not so often, say a few posts a month. How often do you post blog posts now?
Thank you

When you're building a website, you're creating a bigger and bigger welcome mat for your target audience to find. So the commissions you get from any particular month aren't necessarily the result of that month's posts. It's simply a result of your website along with its posts in its entirety converting your traffic.

Every post is important to the whole. And if you stop posting regularly you run the risk of your higher ranking posts losing their position.

All the areas you mentioned are important to building traffic. :) As you build and publish you'll find some posts do better is some areas, while others do great in other areas.

The real key is consistency :) And the best part about traveling is that the laptop always comes right along. That's why I named the site Work From Your Laptop in the first place :)

Thanks for the kind words and support!

Eric, this is truly inspiring. I had a little struggle in the beginning but, I am the driven stubborn and ready to reach my goals. So I will be another success story.

I trust the process and I will keep driving. Seeing things like this makes me push harder because, I all ready know the process works because, I made commissions but, with your income proof here, it just reminds us that it works..lol.

This is motivation and very inspiring. Thank you, for sharing.

I'm so happy to hear that :) Keep pushing! Be stubborn with your success! Personally, I like to think of the people that tell me what I'm doing won't work. I tell myself that if I give up they're going to just tell me "told you so" and I won't let that happen. That's how my brain works with self motivation, lol. Whatever works for you, stick with it and stay driven!

Congratulations on this great achievement, Eric! Truly inspiring!

I made 3 figures in november and I only made my first commission in october. So I can definitely attest to what you're saying.

Once the hard work has been put in, it will cause a snowball effect not only to the traffic coming in to our website, but to our income as well.

We have to be hungry for success! We need to have a strong desire to change our life around. We need to understand that if we don't work hard enough, then nothing is ever going to change.

Else, it's just going to be the boring 9 - 5 forever!

Nope, I'm never going back to that again!

Love the advice in thi post Eric. I like the analogy about the gym. You do have to “trust the system”. You know that if you exercise and eat right, you’ll lose weight and get fit. But if you check every day, it can seem like you aren’t making progress.

It’s a little frustrating to keep hearing “don’t stop now, you’re making progress even if you don’t see it”, but that’s pretty much the reality.

You also have to count small goals, like resisting getting desert a restaurant, or just getting to the gym on a night you didn’t reallly feel like it. Those small steps will keep you moving towards the overall big goal.

Glad to see you did well with Black Friday man!

I hear you man! Thank you!

And when I see guys like you along with the other WA leaders who have been doing this successfully for years it's truly inspiring to see your work ethic and how dedicated you remain.

Even with success, there's so much more work to be done. While I get blips like this, I learn from you guys' examples that there is so much more work to be done if I want to make this kind of commission the norm.

You guys inspire me constantly. See you in Vegas, man!

Congrats Eric. This is awesome.
Your message is heard loud and clear.

This is great advice and inspiration. not just to new members, but to all of us who are still working on the training, trying to get traffic and having moments of fatigue or losing focus.

I agree that the training here will lead us to our success as long as we implement it correctly, work hard and like you said, stay focused.

I have even witnessed the success of members who stay consistent with their writing. There are some who even publish more than 3 or 4 post a week.

I have actually recently decided to create as many post as I can within the week.
I have seen the difference it makes compared to writing just a couple of post here and there.

Thank you for reminding us and for sharing your success with us.
Wishing you the best in all you do

Content, content, and content.
Are the comments on a website help make a quality content?
Reply
ericcantu Premium
New comments are seen basically as new content. When Google sees interactivity and comments and replies, it lets them know this is a popular post. Every little bit helps and when you're doing this with every single one of your posts and can really help in them being seen :)

What could be better, to have each post receive a comment or to concentrate on one as the center of the website?

When I joined, my immediate feeling after being mind-blown what I considered eye opening training was that there are so many people out there who could benefit from this. I dived into the Affiliate Bootcamp and never looked back. It's really rewarding watching people grow from this training :) And that isn't even remotely a dumb question :)
