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 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 am struggling to implement what I went though in Lesson 8: Creating Custom Menus on Your Website. I can't see or insert the Private Policy page instead I see part of the 1st sub title of the Private Policy and the next line: Who We Are At [YOURSITE.com], we are committed to maintaining. What could have gone wrong?

I just finished doing an About Me and Privacy pages. At the end of the About Me, after clicking publish it landed me on a page with questions: choose category, what kind of feedback do you want?, how many comments would you like?, and what next?

What was I suppose to do at this point.

Hi everyone. I'm on level one and in the midst of picking a niche. I have a few ideas and though i'd run it through here to get some feed back before i pick one. I've also provided the reason why I want to go into that niche for clarity.

1) Minimalist lifestyle - its the type of lifestyle im trying to adopt at the moment

2) Hand brewed coffee - i brew my own coffee everyday and source my coffee beans from a local online website

3) Jump ropes - I use jump rope as main form of aerobic exercise. I use waited ropes where my heaviest is 2 lb

4) Fermented food - I make my own homemade kambucha

Any feed back is very much appreciated! Thanks!

I would choose the minimalist lifestyle.. mainly because it seems like one that you can build a lot of different topics and blogs off of to give a lot of content.

Well, that is a Lot. And I don't exactly know what a "Minimalist Lifestyle" is. But, and you can check this: You might try: Gettingyourlifeintoorder.com or ImprovingyourLife.com or makingnewchangestoyourlife.com or Newthingstotrytoimproveyourlife.com or Tryingoutnewstufftomakeyourlifebetter.com Just by clicking on the suggestions; you can see if anyone else has used them. If you click on them. And Google says it can't reach the page; they are up for grabs. Hope these suggestions help?

Hi Kaizan, All interesting ideas. Your passion should help you to decide. If you are passionate about one of these more than the others, this is the way to go. Why? You will need to write a lot of posts about the niche. Passion is like a food for the brain, soul . . . Finding things to write about when you are passionate about the subject or niche is easier than something you are only "interested" in. Best of luck on your journey.

Hey. I think you should use the topic with the less competitive keywords to rank better on search engines.

Well, I will say this; if you wanted to as with the title of your Niche and Page. You could try combining your subjects in your posts. I think I mentioned this as a Niche and Page Title. But, you could try for your first post. "Methods to Improve your life." or "Hobbies that you can do to destress." or "New Ideas to make your life better." or "If you have time; try these." or "Had a hard day at work; try some of these to feel better." You can try combining your Niche Ideas in Posts. As for the affiliate links. You may want to ask other Members about those. I am still learning.

And I will say here too; you might want to join Amazon Associates; and take a look around. Kyle asks you to do that; later in the training anyway. Just put Amazon Associates in Google. And if you have problems with the tax forms? Try Site Support first, then Kyle, Carson and Carson2. And if you want to reach them? Just type their names into the search engine here on WA and click on their names. For instance look up Kyle; then click on his name.

I don't know about that? And you might want to ask Kyle? I am a little rusty at this. To reach Kyle, just type his name in the search engine here on WA and then click on his name. You can do it for Carson; and Carson2 too; they are all Super Pros. But, I will say this. And I haven't done this for a while. I think it is QSR under 100. Traffic and AVG over 50. If I am wrong? Another Member please correct me? And if I am right? Please let me know. I am a little rusty at that. Which is why I am saying; you should confirm with Kyle; or a Member who is sure about that.

Thanks everybody for your advice and feed back! I really appreciate it. I think I'll be going for the minimalist lifestyle and have coffee as a back up. Thanks again!

I would agree with Claire. That niche can be helpful to others. Do your research and write about it. Peace, Mark.

Go with what you like to do so you get motivated all the time. Its no use choosing a niche that you will have few post then get stuck or bored.

The Tutorial Video of the Lesson 8, Level 1 shows to us all 3 pages (Home; About Kyle; Privacy Policy) are just moving one page, because it just 3 different posts on the same page. Who can tell me if that is better (easy) for navigation or there is no difference for the business of Wealthy Affiliation?

You are moving these "topics" to the top of your home page so that they can be easily seen. You can always change this information as you build your website. Later you can even add more than one page to a menu "topic".
The lesson here is simply to learn how to add menus to the top of your home page.
As you continue to work through the course it will all come together.
