blog cover image

Are you trying to promote and sell products online from home but don't know where to start? I'm going to show you why more and more people are learning how to sell products online from home with ZERO competition using Wealthy Affiliate!

How is this possible? It's all about having full control on your own internet real estate and understanding how to take full advantage of the highly lucrative affiliate marketing industry.

Let me explain.

You're probably familiar with sites like eBay, Craigslist, Etsy, Zazzle and more. With sites like these, buyers search for products they're looking for while sellers hope their products can be found and sold.

The problem is that any product can get lost in a sea of thousands of other products just like it in the vast online marketplace.

You know that game where you put a quarter in and you get 3 shots at grabbing stuffed animals with a claw? That's how hard it is to find your product in a sea of similar products. No bueno.

Now imagine having full control of how your product is displayed along with eliminating all the other competition beside it. Whether it's your own product or a popular one you're promoting, or maybe it's a blog you're desperately trying to get readers to, when you build your own website where you have full control and eliminate surrounding competition you suddenly have yourself a prime featured space that you can drive massive traffic to.

This is where Wealthy Affiliate comes into play. The WA platform trains you step by step on how to build a professional, high speed website that's up and running in minutes AND how to drive massive traffic to it & turn that traffic into conversions and revenue.

How to Sell Products Online From Home With Zero Competition

You see, understanding how to sell products online from home isn't nearly as difficult as you may think. It's actually very straightforward when you have the right training. The main steps towards being successful and profitable in online business are the following:

  1. Choose a profitable niche
  2. Build a website
  3. Attract visitors
  4. Earn revenue

From my own experience, I can tell you that Wealthy Affiliate's training works. It is hands down the best training platform and mentoring community for anyone looking to start their own professional online business.

I had zero experience prior to finding Wealthy Affiliate, and thanks to WA's training I was able to have a $4k month in my first year and a $7200 month in my second.

Let's take a deeper look into these 4 steps.

Choosing a profitable niche

If you're going to be selling consistently, then you need to start with a central theme, or niche. Choose something specific that you have a genuine interest in. Maybe you're interested in selling your own travel photography, for example.

When you choose a niche you're passionate about it instantly places you inside your own target audience. This means it's easier to connect with your readers because you share their similar interest.

Also, it's important to not try to be everything to everybody. A travel photography website wouldn't also have articles about woodworking, for example. When you're specific and not too broad with your niche, you'll attract the exact target audience you're looking for and have much better conversions.

Building a Website

This is where doing business on your own real estate comes into play.

When you build your business on your own website you are in full control. You can choose how items are displayed & completely eliminate competition being shown in the same space. Further, you can choose any number of ways to monetize all your traffic that's coming in.

Commissions and earnings don't just come from sales. In fact, the most profitable websites earn revenue not only from people who make purchases on their site, but also from people who show up and actually leave the site! But you can only accomplish this when you're doing business on your own internet real estate.

You can earn revenue through relevant ads placed on your site, building an email list, creating a sales funnel, and much, much more.

Not only does Wealthy Affiliate make building a website a breeze, but the training also shows you in depth how to monetize ALL of your traffic.

WA Websites Come With Full Support

When you take the time to build a website that is creating consistent revenue, you can't afford to have traffic coming in that find parts of your website not working.

Downtime means lost revenue.

Wealthy Affiliate provides 24/7 technical support and even runs your website with redundancy on 2 different servers so that if one server were to go down, your site is still running live on the other server and you experience zero down time.

Tech support is also available 24/7 for any and all questions and has most website issues resolved in minutes.

Attracting Visitors

Traffic is the lifeblood of any online business. Many training platforms will focus on buying traffic. But the true key to building traffic that continues to grow for a sustained period is in learning how to build organic, free traffic.

Understanding the power of keywords is how you drive massive traffic to your website organically.

Keywords are the words or phrases that people type into search engines. What if there was a tool that allowed you to know the exact keywords your target audience was making? There is and it's fully integrated into Wealthy Affiliate!

When you know exactly what your audience is looking for you can then create content that is the answer to their most popular searches! Further, a great keyword tool will not only show you popular keywords but the ones with the least amount of competing websites targeting them. This means you're getting high traffic with minimal competition and this leads to massive conversions!

Earning Revenue & Getting Consistent Conversions

Once you have consistent traffic, consistent commissions and monthly revenue follow. If you're selling your own products or services, this is pretty straightforward. However, how does one get commissions through affiliate marketing?

Through affiliate marketing you partner up with trusted merchants and then connect your target audience with those popular products they're searching for. Every time they make a purchase, you get a commission.


The key to maximizing your profit online is to create a business on your own website. It's a little like the difference between renting and owning. Doing business on someone else's space limits your control of how your content is displayed.

Additionally, whether you have products or services of your own or whether you're connecting your audience with the merchants they trust, you can monetize your traffic in a number of ways when you build on your own website.

Getting the right training is key. Online business profitability doesn't come overnight. Like traditional business it takes consistency. But when you have the right training and follow tried and true strategies, you can find yourself with your own online business where you're the boss & consistent monthly commissions are coming your way.

Wealthy Affiliate is the vehicle that leads to that success. Create your own free starter account and try it for yourself.

It's a great time to be a part of Wealthy Affiliate!

Very happy you enjoyed it!

Good post. Yes, trying to get traffic seems to be my big challenge.

Consistency is key when building your business. Publish 2-3 posts per week, do solid keyword research, make sure you create engagement through comments, share to social media... these are all things Google loves and when you do these things consistently with every post you create, your traffic starts to build :)

Awesome article just trying to pass the stage of attracting audience thanks again

Keep with the training and utilize Jaaxy for every article you write :) Continue doing that and your traffic will grow from a trickle into a steady stream.
