7 ACTIONABLE TIPS to Make More Money Online in 2019!

Last Update: December 31, 2018

Hello friends!

Do you want 2019 to be the greatest year of your life so far? If "Yes!", read this post until the end!

Instead of writing a short "happy new year" post, I decided to share with you 7 actionable and very practical tips that will help you to make more money online in 2019.

This post will be extremely helpful to you if...

  1. You are just starting out your 'make money online journey'
  2. You have some experience but want to achieve more in 2019
  3. You want to know that you're on the right track

Why should you listen to me? I have been on the Wealthy Affiliate community already for a couple of years, I recently made $5,000 in a week online and I help beginners daily to achieve more success online.

Therefore, I know what are the typical mistakes that beginners do and what is holding them back.

  1. Bookmark this post so you can come back to these tips also later.
  2. Share this with all your friends who are interested in making money online. (Note: You can also share this to your referrals at Wealthy Affiliate)

If you follow these 7 actionable tips and you'll do better than +95% of the other people who haven't read this post.

Are you ready? Let's get right into things!

1. Finish Kyle's Step-By-Step Training

I thought this would be obvious for most WA members but to my surprise, most people for any reason skip the training or don't go through it at all.

Kyle is a multi-millionaire and has helped directly or indirectly 100,000's of people worldwide to make more money online. He really knows what you should be doing.

He has laid out simple steps for you to follow. Make sure to go through all the 5 levels and finish all the tasks below the lessons.

2. Ask Lots of Questions Within the Community

When you go through Kyle's training, it will answer probably 90-95% of your questions.

However, there is still that 5-10% left that need to be answered. You need to be proactive and ask those questions from other members.

You will be never left alone at the WA community and there are always people who are willing to help you out.

3. Engage with Successful Online Entrepreneurs

One of my favorite mentors, Jim Rohn, said: "You are the average of the 5 people that you spend the most time with." If you observe your own and other people lives for a while, you'll notice that it's true.

Some people take it even further and say that your income will be the average of the 5 people that you spend the most time with.

That seems to be quite accurate as well.

That's why I recommend getting yourself around with successful online entrepreneurs who have already achieved what you want to achieve.

Recently, I wrote a post where I show you step-by-step how to do this within Wealthy Affiliate.

4. Set Clear & Measurable Goals

You can't hit the target if you don't even have it. One of the most common mistakes that I see in people's lives is the lack of clear goals.

Some studies say that less than 3% of the people set goals. If you set yourself clear goals, you're already ahead of the 97% of the people who don't do that.

Let me give you a few examples of how you should NOT set your goals:

  1. I want to be successful.
  2. I just want to make money online.
  3. I want to learn some new skills.

How can you measure clearly the success for achieving those goals? You can't.

That's why you must set goals that are crystal clear and measurable. If you want to make money online in 2019, here are a few good examples of measurable goals for yourself:

  1. I finish 1 task per day in Kyle's step-by-step training.
  2. I make $5,000/month by the end of 2019.
  3. I publish 3 posts per posts per week to my website.
  4. I send 1 email per day to my email list.
  5. I publish 3 YouTube videos every week to my YouTube channel.
  6. Etc.

Do you see how easy these goals are to measure?

When the timeframe is over (day/week/month), you can easily look back and say whether you have reached your goal or not.

Some experts say that even a 5-year-old kid should be able to define whether or not you've reached your goal. That's how clear and measurable they should be.

5. Take Daily Action Towards Your Goals

Your action defines your priorities and how your life will look like.

Not your goals or words but your ACTIONS.

I see every single day numerous people setting themselves a goal like, "I want to make $5,000/month online."

But then they never take action to reach that goal. Do you think they're going to reach it by accident?

Do you think that you're going to reach your goals without taking daily, consistent action? That's not gonna to happen (unless you have very low goals).

One of my favorite quotes says, "Little progress every day adds up to big results."

A great thing when building an online business is that your income will most likely grow every single month if you take consistent action.

With a regular 9-5 job you get a raise usually once a year but when building your own online business, you get a raise every single month if you're putting in the work.

So, in order to reach that $5,000, you need to go the path like this:

  1. Make your first $1 online
  2. Make your first $100/month online
  3. Make your first $500/month online
  4. Make your first $1,000/month online
  5. Make your first $5,000/month online
  6. ...
  7. Make your first $50,000/month online
  8. ..
  9. Make history.

It happens little by little.

I can say from my own experience that going from $0 to $500/month took me much more time than going from $500/month to $5,000/month.

I've heard the same also from many other people.

In order to understand this concept better, I recommend reading Jerry's post below:

=> See How Your Income Starts Growing Like a Snowball (if you take action)!

6. Watch Weekly Live Webinars By Jay Neill

If you're starting out, I recommend that you go through Kyle's training daily.

In addition, I highly recommend watching Jay's weekly webinars within Wealthy Affiliate. It comes every Friday at 5 PM PST time.

Jay takes your skills to the next level by teaching every single week new things about different important topics:

  1. How to get your website ranked on top of Google.
  2. How to create YouTube videos easily without any experience.
  3. How to start making money with email marketing from scratch.
  4. How to build a profitable affiliate marketing website step-by-step.
  5. Etc.

All Jay's webinars are beginner-friendly and he breaks down the topics in easy-to-understand steps.

You will find all the past webinar recordings on the left side by clicking, "Live Events" and choosing the webinar you want to watch.

If you watch the webinar live, you can also ask questions directly from Jay.


I haven't seen anyone failing within Wealthy Affiliate who didn't give up.

In other words, every single person that I've seen in WA that went through the training and took action consistently learned to make money online.

If 1,000's of people who took action and made it, why wouldn't you make it as well?

You will if you take action and it only depends on your own effort and commitment.

The Wealthy Affiliate training is PROVEN to work over and over again. That's why it will work for you as well.

Take a look at Nathaniell's post to see 10's of success stories that happened within WA in 2018.

Keep in mind that Nathaniell collected only a small fraction of the success stories that happened here in 2018.

In addition, 9 out of 10 people don't even bother to post about their success publicly because they prefer to keep things private.

So, if you see one person making a success post of earning +$10,000/month online, you can be sure that there are at least 9 other ones as well who just didn't tell it publicly.

If you haven't made your first $1 or first $1,000/month online yet, make sure that you follow all the 7 tips that I shared with you in this post and you will make it sooner or later.

  2. Share this with your friends who are also interested in making money online.
  3. (MOST IMPORTANT) Take MASSIVE ACTIONS toward your goals every single day.

Thank you Roope! That was an extraordinarily good post! So concise and actionable. It is clear you have lived/are living your message... That is what makes this such a powerful piece of writing. I am taking this advice, I won't be able to go as fast, but I will not give up and will keep on making these great steps!
Thanks again, Roope!

Hi Roope,

Thank you so much for sharing!

Can I ask - how much time do you put in everyday to work on Affiliate Marketing?

I'm working full-time and taking care of my family right now. I'm doing this with very limited time, so I'm just wondering how this work time-wise for you.

Thank you so much!

AndreasS Premium
Thanks for a very inspirational post! I've been with WA for a number of years (maybe longer than you), but I still don't feel I can say I have succeeded.

My ultimate goal is to be able to make a living of affiliate marketing, but I'm pretty far from it at the moment. I earn money every month, but it is not as much as I want. I was well on my way with one site that one Christmas a few years ago earned me almost $7000... but that site is so booooring and I have stopped working on it. That was probably a big mistake, but I have other sites I feel more urge to work with.

I will start of 2019 by going through my goals and action plans to make this a much better year than 2018.

1. I will go through the WA course one more time. It has been updated a few times since I started with WA.
2. I will engage more with WA and the community... I've been "lost" for a while and not visited this site so much.
3. I will try to find successful people to engage with that can help me, and maybe I can help them.
4. I will set clear goals and clear action plans, starting with that today!
5. Daily actions: That's what I'm good at... I work almost every day with my sites.
5. I will catch up and watch all the Video sessions with Jay I have missed.
6. The one other thing I'm extremely good at: I have not given up even if I feel I don't get the success I want. :)

Thanks for sharing Andreas, My "brother" from Norway! :)

I'm from Finland so pretty nearby, huh?

For a number of reasons - Most outside of my control - 2018 turned out to be one of the Very Worst Ever, of my 72 Years.
So ... "Lord Willing, and the creek don't rise, I intend to do EVERYTHING POSSIBLE to make sure that 2019/2020 are the Very Best Ever, for My Beloved and Myself !!!!!

Mine too, health and job all bad...making this year the best.

Hello Robert,

Thank you for your excellent blog post, I really believe and actually, know that if you follow the training steps in Wealthy Affiliate but it really does work, it is the best Internet training platform that I know of.

I also think one of the biggest keys to success is consistency and to have a step-by-step plan with goals, which I know that you have already mentioned.

Have a great New Year Robert and have a great time in Vegas.

Foxhenley Premium
I like what you wrote, and have chosen to be faithful to the training as my actionable goal.

This is a timely post and excellent advice for everyone for we never stop studying!

Thank you for work that will be a blessing to many in the year 2019 to come and after!

God Bless and Good Luck!

Excellent post. As a newbie who's just finished Kyle's level four, I agree totally with the need to do the training step by step. For those of us who are totally new to this online world (although I've been using the internet since its invention 30 years ago, I never found the way make money off of it) there is just too much to learn and too many moving parts to do this by guesswork and intuition. It appears that there is a pretty steep learning curve to get to that first $500/month but once you master the basics that get you to that point the rest is just managing the process.
Thanks again for the encouragement in your post
TsigemariamG Premium
Awesome post! Thank you very much Roope! I really needed your post and I got them at the right time. I just joined WA and I have noticed that it is ALL about how much I put in action and then I have to be patient to see my results.
RoopeKiuttu Premium
Exactly. The results depend on you and your efforts. The Wealthy Affiliate training works for everyone who goes through it and takes consistent action.
LCEndahl Premium
EXCELLENT. I so needed that! But I need help with goals.. setting them and then breaking them down to doable steps. I have always struggled with setting goals in the past and have never really accomplished many of them either. I was either never taught, or I wasn't paying attention.
=) Happy New Year!!!
RoopeKiuttu Premium
Setting goals is really a key to huge results. Kyle also often underlines it in his own training.
JKulk1 Premium
Thank you Roopesh. 2029 is going to be a very exciting year. I will be setting my goals within the next few days (just waiting for family to go home first... Not wanting them to go but I can"t do much until they do). This year's will be small, but steady, steps for me. Thank you for all you do for your fellow WA members. Jim
RoopeKiuttu Premium
Great to hear that Jim! Small and steady steps are enough as long as we're always moving forward :)
AlexEvans Premium
Excellent post Roope, and such good advice, shared from your experience.

We are so fortunate to have access to the knowledge and resources here in WA and with the support that is available we are well ahead of the folks that are out there struggling to make it on their own.

Like you say the only extra ingredient we need to add to the recipe is our hard work.

Have another successful year Roope.

Enjoy celebrating the new year with your family and friends.

RoopeKiuttu Premium
Thank you Alex! Happy new year to you!
HeidiY Premium
Great post Roope. Finally with the help of our community, asking lots of questions and picking the brains of those here who are being successful I have set my goals for 2019 and feel like I have a clear path now to follow.

High on the list is to finish Bootcamp training and I will be continuing to practice all 7 of your steps throughout 2019.

This is my year! I have 365 days to smash my goals and I’m looking forward to celebrating as each and every one of them is reached :)
RoopeKiuttu Premium
Happy new year to you Heidi! Bootcamp training is amazing. It's even more comprehensive than OEC.

You are so awesome - and I am learning so much
from you and others here at WA - this is a journey

Great Roope, I almost didn't want to go partying, but start working on a new article. Anyway great motivated post.
Have a great evening
RoopeKiuttu Premium
Hehe :)

I need to stay at home resting because I just became a bit ill.

Anyway, wouldn't have gone out tonight because decided to spend some time at home planning and visualizing the coming year.
YanFellow Premium
Great Roope! Love the photo! :-)

In my other (successful) ventures I've never had to write down goals. I just thought this is what I'm gonna do and went and did it :-)

Progress is a bit slower here than I'd jave liked so will go through your list and WRITE THINGS DOWN :-)

Thanks, Roope,
RoopeKiuttu Premium
Yeah, sometimes that works as well but imagine how much more you could have achieved by writing down goals and making a faster progress? :)
imthedamo Premium
Come on Roope, that cloud formation is clearly 2017, haha, great post man. I love how you cultivate it for both the member and the non-WA member.
RoopeKiuttu Premium
Hehe :D

I'm gonna 'steal' a few/all of these recommendations right NOW and put together a goals blog for the next year.

Happy New Year, and thanks tons!
