How Will YOU Make Money Online?

Great question!

The reality is that there are many ways to make money online! The problem is that people often get distracted by the "latest and greatest" product or service and they are never able to build a successful (and revenue generating) business as a result.

Today I am going to run you through one of the most fundamental, yet powerful processes of generating revenue online.

It is a proven process, it is one that we use, and one that 100,000's of other Wealthy Affiliate members use. It is also the ultimate "making money" process that worked 5 years ago and it is going to work 5 years from now (and beyond). It is a process that will reveal as much opportunity in the massive online world as you are willing to work for!

It is called Affiliate Marketing.

But, just one thing before you get into the MONEY "stuff"...

The making money part of your business won't happen quite yet.

Before you earn money, you are going to first be focusing on creating your niche website (which will take place in the next two lessons) and are working to get traffic to your website. Without a website, without content, and without traffic, the MONEY part simply doesn't happen.

So don't look at this like a race. You will reach success and a great deal of it, but before you build your own personal SKYSCRAPER of a business, you must first have a solid FOUNDATION to build it on. That is going to be our first goal within the Getting Started training. Cool?

Alright, let's continue on! :)

Below is a video walk-through of today's lesson and the process of "How to Make Money Online - The Process Explained". Just click the PLAY button to watch it!


In the coming days you are going to be working through this process and by the end of this Level 1 training alone, you are going to have an awesome foundation in place that will lead you to much greater success.

Task #1: Understand the Make Money Process

There are MANY different ways that you can earn money online and many different ways in which you can build an entire business. The most lucrative and the one that we have been teaching here at Wealthy Affiliate for the past 14 years is Affiliate Marketing.

Below is a diagram outlining the process of making money through affiliate marketing.

There are now over 4 BILLION people online as of 2019 (YOUR audience) and these people are going to search engines, social media, or visiting websites for help all the time.

These people are looking for information, solutions to problems and to buy stuff.

That is where you are going to come in with your website and help these "audiences" by offering them information about what they are looking for. You will be "helping" these people, recommending products/services they can benefit from, and you earn affiliate commissions ($$) as a result.

There are over 550 MILLION products/services that you can promote as an affiliate marketer. The opportunity is incredible and it is only growing!

By Lesson 4 of this course you are going to have your very own "niche" website in place that you will use to connect with your chosen audience and make money with. You will have your very own slice of the internet opportunity.

Task #2: Create (Write Down) Your Financial Goals

You want to earn revenue right? That is great! In order to earn anything however, you need to have some goals in place.

In this task we want you to join in on a "money goals" discussion here at Wealthy Affiliate. You are going to be telling us what your goals are and going forward, we are going to be helping you achieve these very goals!

QUESTION #1: How much money would you be happy earning?

QUESTION #2: How much would you be ecstatic (ie, really excited) earning?

QUESTION #3: And how much TIME are you willing to invest to achieve these goals?

PLEASE make 100% sure that you do not skip this step and you revisit this post regularly when you are in need of some motivation. I can absolutely assure you that if you work hard at this and you are persistent towards these goals, you will achieve them. But ultimately it is UP TO YOU!

JOIN DI$CU$ION: What Are Your "Money" Goals?

In addition to this, it would be wonderful if you commented on someone else's goals they have posted within this thread. Aim to comment on at least TWO people's goals. You likely can network with many other "like minded" people here at Wealthy Affiliate and this is a good way to get your networking efforts rolling. We are a friendly bunch here at WA!

The best niche ever is the one you discover from inside of you. I mean that latent, hidden treasure the God almighty has kept in there even before you were born, but not the one generated for you online or anywhere. But this niche is inside of you, being there waiting for a day you will find it or come for it. This is your natural ability, your talent. As you know, every talent hidden or undiscovered is called latent. This is what you have to find in this business to thrive higher and successfully. Work hard for this and success coming to you like the sea that never knows dryness. Good luck.

Totally agree with you, bat it is not always the case for everyone.
someone need time to find out their hidden potential.
Kyle, to be sincere, you made me feel I'm in another world completely. Why? You made everything simple and easy for me. You inspired my writing spirit. You sparked up the fire in me and made me go back to what I have put on the back burner some years ago. Thanks so much for this. You are a godsend to me. More grace.

You see, I'm using WordPress to write my content, but the problem I have now is Privacy Policy page editing becausee WordPress has already provided a copy of it, but I'm just thinking of how to come about editing this perfectly, professionally. What could you do to assist me, please?
AbieAJ Premium Plus
You can use the one in site content.

Once done you can publish to your site, it is typically a page.
Oh yeah, thank you so much here.
I’m just staring and I’m feeling very inspired by what I have learned so for. I’m very passionate about hair color and want hair color tools to be my niche. Like tint brushes and foiling combs foils and clips etc every tool you need to color hair for professionals. What do you guys think of that as a niche?
Newme202 Premium Plus
That is very possible. You need to narrow down your search and specify what type of hair are you referring to?
countrylife Premium
Like your niche, having a terrific day?

Hi! I'm new here and I'm now undergoing my Entrepreneur Certification Training. Kyle mentioned that class training programs are held every Friday night. Are these class trainings recorded for replay for the sake of those who miss the classes? I work late shifts, so I will likely miss these classes unless they are recorded for replay for night owls like me.

Hi, it may seem you are referring to Jay's live webinars those can be viewed by Premium and Premium Plus members.

However yes all live webinars can be replayed again and again.

Welcome to WA and our community.

Thanks for responding, Abie! I later got this answer when I was reading up the offers for Premium members. I'm definitely going to sign up for it soon.

I think it is better to focus on a single niche to promote in your website as it will get you more expert in that particular niche and the message you want to convey to your audience. I was like you before. I thought of another niche to promote in my website but later on I realise to just focus on one and make good at it.
Hello please i need help here.
This is my website name and doman (Ligesiterubix) please is this website good name to pomote Baby niches?
Praxides Premium
Hi CSoni, I think it's good to have a website name that is relevant to your niche or with a word or two related to your niche. Also something easy to spell and remember. It's good to register with a .com
Hope this will help. God bless

Hello if I delete my website I can still have the opportunity to build another free one here on the platform, help.
