I just signed up and do not know what to do next. What do you recommend? I work in IT and am familiar with Webpages. I'd like to replace my current income but have no illusions of getting rich quick. What works for you and what do you recommend for someone new. Thanks!

If you are talking about having an affiliate link on your page to direct visitors to Amazon, then the steps are as follows.

1st you want to sign up for Amazon affiliate program and they will review your site.
Once you are accepted, then all you do is find the product that you want to have linked and copy the code.

Is being an affiliate what you are talking about?

Cool write up! I know when I first started I had no idea of how people make money online. It all seemed like scams. These are legit ways of making money, some harder then others, but it does give ideas.

Exactly. It is hard to even see the legitimate ones even through the scams. Because they have to grab your attention somehow.

There is a saying in horse training, "First make them say WOW, then make them say how." And that is what is used in online money making as well.

I can teach people how to train a horse in 60 days. And that is true, but what you don't know is all the little stuff I am good to get those results in that amount of time. Is it possible to do that? Yeah, I can, and you can to, but it's going to take time to learn all about the different things. (ie, the systems to use to capture leads, respond to people, convert people, etc.)

I think CSS is another requirement for giving Wordpress base web service. It helps to manipulate the design and render amazing design.

To do CSS you have to know HTML so definitely. I like CSS because you can make a change once on it and it effects all the pages. Very easy to do!

Yah html is the first step. But for layout CSS is obvious.

"skyhorse":
Let me emphasize something you said in case your readers "missed it."

I just saw this quote but not sure who said it so I give the credit to the unknown person.

I paraphrase:

In the land of the blind, the man/lady with 1 eye is King/Queen!!!

In other words, you do not have to be better than EVERY body, just the 1 person you're Consulting/Servicing.

You mentioned this on the second page of this Tutorial and thought I'd reiterate it for those who feel they have nothing to provide. This is especially true if you do this locally since the competition is less.

In fact, people do business with other NOT b/c they are the best or cheapest, but b/c they LIKE you.

When you are likable, that triggers an emotion, and as I said before, people act on EMOTIONS!

Thanks for your post.

Aloha,
Charlie

Thanks for reiterating that statement, it is true. And to be better then everyone just isn't possible because there will always be someone who has been doing it longer then you, but you have been doing it longer then person X.

Thank you very much!

In my opinion, best video tutorial is available in Lynda.com

However, the learning curve lengthy. They suppose to have a 7 days free trial. You can try. Besides Wordpress.org has tutorials on them.

Yep, what Willow Tech said.

Your subject matter here was very fascinating and thought-provoking; it made me realize that I avoid all actions which require technical thoughts and actions (that's almost everything at WA). I got very excited to think that someone could create correctly my blogs, and I could write to my heart's content. Are there any takers--at reasonable rates? Is there a template for tutorials; that is, some laid-out form that the material is filled into on page 1, page 2, etc.? Or is there an article on site that explains the process? Thank you for giving me hope....
