How to earn passive income from a website in 2019

Last Update: January 12, 2019

For people who have joined wealthy affiliate because they have wanted to make passive income from a website, know that you have come to the right place. Thanks to the wonderful platform that we have here, the process for doing so has been simplified into 4 simple steps.

A lot of people want to over complicate it or not follow the steps as is. But the fact of the matter is, if you follow it as laid out and do the training, you will see success over time. It is important to follow these steps consistently as they are the fundamentals to making money with any website. Remember, the fundamentals always win out in the end.

So what are the 4 steps?

Find a niche

You will simply be finding a particular subject or a particular audience that you are catering to. A lot of people fail in this first part because they want to cater to everyone. This is the last thing you want to do as you can't solve everyones problems all at once. You need to be able to solve once central problem over and over for people.

The more you narrow down your audience, the better you have a chance at earning revenue later on it the process. Dont be afraid of missing out just because your audience is narrowed down.

Build your website

After you have figured out your main audience, now it is time to build a website. Here at Wealthy Affiliate, it only takes 30 seconds.

No more setting up domain names from separate registries and linking them to a CPanel within your hosting account.

In fact, websites here are being hosted through quality manage hosting.

Write Content

You will then write content specific to your audience and their problems. It is important to do Keyword Research and SEO during this process as this allows people to see your website in the search engines later down the line.

Also, DO NOT EVER write content that is not relevant to your website at all. I have seen people write about Wealthy Affiliate on a website that is not MMO, Affiliate marketing, etc. I've seen it on fitness websites.

Think about this, do you ever visit a camping website to read a review about Wealthy Affiliate or E-mail marketing? NO. You came to that website because you want content related to camping.

Earn Revenue

The last part is the last part in the process for a reason. A lot of people want to earn money right away. I don’t blame you. But you have to focus on the previous steps before you start earning money. This is a long process and your ideal goal is to do this for the rest of your life because you want a life of freedom.

One of the biggest mistakes most people make (including myself) is focusing on the money. It really is all about process. I have recently noticed that every time that I have made money, it was usually a time when I wasn’t focused on it and just following the process of putting out content.

Earning money comes when you show your website visitors that you do care. At the end of the day, they are all human beings that need their problems solved. They are NOT dollar signs in our pockets. So as long as you show them that you care, the money and nice rewards will come.

After the Process is established?

After you have established your website, you will continually add new content and earn revenue. It doesnt stop just because you have earned your first dollar. It keeps on going.

Ive learned that in order to be a successful affiliate marketer, you just need to keep everything simple and follow what is being taught. Just keep on putting out content and showing people you are here to help.

If you do that, you will see more success in 2019 and beyond.
