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!

If you have any questions about any aspect of the make money process, feel free to leave them in the comments below.

Awesome, off to the next lesson now where you will be "choosing your niche"!

I want to be part of the WA Affiliate program as explained in the boot camp training.

Say I sign up as one of my prospects c4all it prospect A and he signs up prospect B.

Can I get a commission on prospect B's signing and further downline sign ups?

Hi - no, this is not multi-level marketing. You only receive a commission on your own immediate referral.

Hi

Yes however it would be halved (half commission), you would get a full commission upon becoming a premium member.

They have to had upgraded to Premium or Premium Plus subscription.

However, if they signed up folks, you would NOT collect commissions on them too.

Congratulations on wanting to learn how to do this and go to school at the same time.

When it comes to choosing a niche is more about an audience you wish to help. So for you it may be those who are eco friendly to the environment. But that still is very broad

Here are some niche tips that will help you refine your thought of sustainability.

A niche is something you feel super excited to write about, a skill you have attained, something that resonates with you. You will want to be focused on one niche. What is it that you want to help a group of people with or what problem do you want to help them solve (group could be age, gender, location, experience level, degree or type of need, etc.)

A niche is not a product, it's a subject that you can help a target audience with. Remember, you are not setting up a shop (store), you will be writing lots of articles about your niche to help your targeted audience.

The importance of a targeted audience is that It's always better to target a specific niche with a specific solution to problems.

Kyles asks us to complete this statement.
'i want to help ____(group) with ______(problem)'

For example. I like camping.
Camping is a very broad topic with a lot of competition so to eliminate some competition in the beginning and to give my website has a chance to rank and grow in traffic, the focus needs to be a smaller scope.

For example my initial narrow scope could be: essential camping equipment for beginners. I can talk about camping, my experiences, what I have learned about camping, and how I have discovered what is really needed. Since I am quality focused, I have found good equipment which I believe is the very best. I will share my review of the equipment I use and why it is the best. Once the website is established and has a good volume of traffic, its scope can be expanded to include other things camping related.

So with my initial narrow scope, after visiting my website, a beginning camper will have a good idea of what camping is all about for a beginner and the equipment needed and the best brand products to buy. I will have many products on my niche website, but they will all relate to camping.

I am passionate about camping and want my readers to get excited about it too and feel comfortable when going for the first time that they have the necessary equipment..

So my niche is camping with an initial narrow scope. My targeted group is beginning campers wondering what equipment is needed and what the best is.

I have had some disappointing experiences so I want to help them avoid the same mistakes I have made. I will help campers buy the right equipment to make their camping experience more pleasant and safe.


I will write many content posts about camping (the how to’s, what is, etc.). A beginner camper has no idea what kind of equipment is necessary. So I will write posts about the necessary equipment. I will choose products I can recommend. I will compare products and identify the best. So after visiting my website a beginning camper will have a good idea of what camping equipment is needed and the best brand products to buy. So I will have many products on my niche website, but they will all relate to camping equipment necessary for a pleasant and safe camping experience.

Use tools like the following to see questions you can address for your niche.

Why should you narrow your niche when first starting?
The key to getting started fast is to narrow your niche down to a specific topic. This way, you will eliminate a lot of competition and get results much faster. Once your site is established and you are getting traffic you can expand your niche scope.

Keep in mind it's important to choose a niche specific enough that way the target audience arrives at the website and finds exactly what they're looking for. When you go to broad, you lose that.

Health and Wellness would be a very, very broad niche, a little too broad.

If you choose a niche specific enough with plenty of room for scaling out later you are in good shape.

Here are a couple of blogs on narrowing and expanding a niche.

Hi

In the first instance, I'd ask myself

Am I passionate and genuinely interested in my chosen niche, as I I'd be expected to write lots of content, it would motivate me to update blog with succinct original content worthy my visitors week in week out.

Would I be writing about it in a years time or two or more

Who would be my target audience, who would benefit most from what I have to offer.
Reply
AbieAJ Premium Plus
The question is WHO would be your target audience vs Not what you are selling to an audience.

You need aim for ONE focused niche with a specific group of people, I'd go with what's best resonates with me.

The recommendation is to focus on ONE site starting out as it takes lots of effort and work get it going, however once you know what you are doing, then the learning curve would be less steeper to scale up.

That's a great niche to be in however broad you may want to narrow it down to a subcategory starting out, otherwise you will find it very hard to get noticed by the search engines and to compete with big authority sites. Target audience is important too, who would you be writing to, once you are able to identify them, you are closer to finding a focused niche.

Once a site starts gaining traction, traffic and authority you can then scale to cover another subcategory.

See example blog post below A niche subject is something you are passionate and genuinely interested in could be a hobby or an interest, and know so well you can write plenty original content about.

ONE niche, a website. Products and programs can be varied however all must be relevant to the niche.

You may consult with https://answersocrates.com/ for further research into finding a subcategory starting out. You can search what real people are asking as in Questions, Prepositions, Comparisons, in the past, letters and query. It is also great if someone wants to write a thorough research based article.

For example if you are in yoga

hey guys.

I read its better to have only one niche on a website. I understand why.

But let me run my idea:

All around houses and garden. Is better to have a separate website for Bathrooms and kitchens.

Or since its all in the house niche can i run it on the same webpage?

looking forward to your answers.

Can you think of a topic that spans all rooms of a house.
What would be the purpose of your idea and who would your audience be? For example lighting covers all rooms, Who would your targeted audience be for lighting and what would be your purpose when helping that group of people? What are you most passionate about. What's the topic? If you have a topic that covers all rooms of the house then you can address your topic as one niche even though it covers all rooms. You would start with one room but you could expand to all rooms as your site grows

If i would choose laminate and tiles: its both floor for the house is that specific enough? or should I focus on one of them?

That could work however you would need write lots about laminating as in original succinct content as perhaps in relation to sourcing, types, for what purposes, the how-to, maintenance, etc.

Hi

Awesome niche, however needing be refined a bit. I am sure you'd be able devise a plan moving forward. When needing a hand, or have further questions. kindly let us know.

You may start with a siterubix subdomain around a focused niche and build up content and until you are satisfied with your niche and name, down the line have your own dot com, as some affiliate programs do not work with a subdomain. Cost of which is $15 yearly each privacy included. You can then move your siterubix to your dot com applying the move feature found within the site manager which is an easy process.

Another reason is that if you made a mistake on a dot com domain, you won't be able to edit the URL, you'd have to purchase a new one.
Reply
jghwebbrand Premium
I would use the free domain name first and do the first 10 lessons, because many times what happens is that people change their mind on the domain name they want and cannot change it but have to buy another domain name.. When you use the free siterugbix.com you can MOVE it to a purchased domain name - everything moves. As for your niche idea great opportunity. and its good to see you have the background knowledge of it. Terrific.

Just in case you would find some general niche tips helpful, here they are.

That's a great niche to be in however broad you may want to narrow it down to a subcategory starting out, otherwise you will find it very hard to get noticed by the search engines and to compete with big authority sites. Target audience is important too, who would you be writing to, once you are able to identify them, you are closer to finding a focused niche.

Once a site starts gaining traction, traffic and authority you can then scale to cover another subcategory.

See example blog post below A niche subject is something you are passionate and genuinely interested in could be a hobby or an interest, and know so well you can write plenty original content about.

ONE niche, a website. Products and programs can be varied however all must be relevant to the niche.

You may consult with https://answersocrates.com/ for further research into finding a subcategory starting out. You can search what real people are asking as in Questions, Prepositions, Comparisons, in the past, letters and query. It is also great if someone wants to write a thorough research based article.

For example if you are in camping

When deciding on a niche try narrow it down to a more specific niche, you can ask yourself the following question:

So I want to help people with ____________________ ?

Fill in the blank and you are going to get closer to a specific audience. Your niche research which you'd fine in site content > templates:-

Okay here's our thoughts.
You have some board ideas here and they are good and popular with an audience needing help. So it is important to define the audience you want to help and how you wish to help them. Even though RV and Camping as somewhat the same, the group of people will most likely be different. So it is important to decide which audience you wish to focus on.

Which one of your ideas are you most passionate about, have the most experience with, know the problems and ways you can help people. That is how you will grow traffic to your website.

Here's an example and some general tips to help you refine one of your ideas. (Just one idea to start with on a website.)

. I like camping.
Camping is a very broad topic with a lot of competition so to eliminate some competition in the beginning and to give my website has a chance to rank and grow in traffic, the focus needs to be a smaller scope.

For example my initial narrow scope could be: essential camping equipment for beginners. I can talk about camping, my experiences, what I have learned about camping, and how I have discovered what is really needed. Since I am quality focused, I have found good equipment which I believe is the very best. I will share my review of the equipment I use and why it is the best. Once the website is established and has a good volume of traffic, its scope can be expanded to include other things camping related.

So with my initial narrow scope, after visiting my website, a beginning camper will have a good idea of what camping is all about for a beginner and the equipment needed and the best brand products to buy. I will have many products on my niche website, but they will all relate to camping.

I am passionate about camping and want my readers to get excited about it too and feel comfortable when going for the first time that they have the necessary equipment..

So my niche is camping with an initial narrow scope. My targeted group is beginning campers wondering what equipment is needed and what the best is.

I have had some disappointing experiences so I want to help them avoid the same mistakes I have made. I will help campers buy the right equipment to make their camping experience more pleasant and safe.


I will write many content posts about camping (the how to’s, what is, etc.). A beginner camper has no idea what kind of equipment is necessary. So I will write posts about the necessary equipment. I will choose products I can recommend. I will compare products and identify the best. So after visiting my website a beginning camper will have a good idea of what camping equipment is needed and the best brand products to buy. So I will have many products on my niche website, but they will all relate to camping equipment necessary for a pleasant and safe camping experience.

Why should you narrow your niche when first starting?
The key to getting started fast is to narrow your niche down to a specific topic. This way, you will eliminate a lot of competition and get results much faster. Once your site is established and you are getting traffic you can expand your niche scope.

Keep in mind it's important to choose a niche specific enough that way the target audience arrives at the website and finds exactly what they're looking for. When you go to broad, you lose that.

Health and Wellness would be a very, very broad niche, a little too broad.

If you choose a niche specific enough with plenty of room for scaling out later you are in good shape.

Here are a couple of blogs on narrowing and expanding a niche.

Hi, Joy! What I'm seeing people say, with utter consistency, is that you should cover whatever you enjoy the most and that you're certain you can continue to write about without getting bored. So in other words, whatever you really love and are excited about is probably the best choice. If you love both RV ideas and camping equally, then toss a coin! The advice about a site is that you should continue to post on it for about six months and consider at least 20 posts to be your *minimum*, so keep that in mind, too.

Best of luck to you :-)

You could go for Camping in General; and then throw in RV's later. RV's to me are sort of included in Camping. So, you might just do Camping and throw in RV's later.

Hope this helps and encourages?

Depends on if you have a bigger interest and passion for the mechanical side of RVing or the nature side of camping.
Both would be good niches. They are very different.
I do both, I own a 29 foot RV and backpack tent camp. Not much is used from one to the other.

Well my friend, I have done what I call tent camping. My boys disagree. lol! They say I glamp. I bought a gutted 5th wheel. I now have the task of rebuilding it. I like projects. I will be hiring someone to do my wiring though. I love watching families living full time in an RV. Camping is so peaceful for me. Every time I go, I don’t want to come back. This is my dream life. I can pull it just fine. Backing, I need a lot of practice. My dogs love it too.

So, help me think if you don’t mind. I am rebuilding the camper. But I also enjoy simply tent camping. Just hanging out at the campsite playing games, cooking and meeting other campers. I love to kayak. I excited just talking about it.

Rebuilding the RV would give you a lots of content. Videos of each step with helpful hints, the things that went wrong for you, this would drive more traffic to your blog.
My RV sits on a pad at a lake, don't move it anymore. Backing is no problem for me, I drove big trucks for years.
You need to choose one or the other, after you have a lot of traffic, over 100 per day, you could add a tent camping sideline.
When starting a website, you need to have a narrow direction or traffic will be harder to get and keep.
Glamping is not bad, in the 70's I purchased a small refrigerator for my tent to keep food and milk. I still have it for drinks in my game room.
Pm me here at WA if you would like more detailed help with your content in either one of these niches.
I have been camping and tenting since the 60's. I am going on a 2 week backpack camping trip next summer.
