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!

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

I notice these two features on Site Content "SEO analysis and checks" and "Content structure analysis" I have used Site Content as least half a dozen times and I have never noticed these features in use..

So,are they no longer extant or did I miss them somehow. If they are longer available maybe they should be removed from the list of features that Site Content provides.

Thanks

Hiya..That was such a great response to @LCrombie. I've learnt it's best to have different websites for different niches. Assuming my niche is mobile accessories& I intend to start with marketing security cameras, should my domain be something like "securitycamera" or "mobile accesories", or "esiezafmobileaccessories."? Do I need to have my name in the domain or not necessarily?

Hi Esiezaf - Domain names are important for sure, but the days of having a domain name that exactly matches your niche are long gone. If you can get a domain name with your exact niche it can't hurt, but don't sweat it if you can't find it available. It it more important that you domain name is short if possible - under 15 characters is great. Another thing to think about is could you build a strong brand around the domain name. Unless you are planning to brand yourself, and make yourself the focus in your marketing, I wouldn't use your name in the domain name. I hope this helps. You are off to a great start.

Voilà, je viens de finir ma première leçon mais j'ai quelques inquiétudes.
En fait, je suis d'un pays francophone malheureusement le site et son contenu son anglais. N'y a-t-il pas des contenus en français car pour le site j'ai quand même pu configurer un traducteur sur mon navigateur ?
Par ailleurs, je viens déjà de créer un site web mais je ne sais comment le rendre présentable, il y a un cours pour cela pour devrais-je avoir accès à un quelconque outil dans le site?

Merci.

Malheureusement, tout est en anglais, donc vous devrez peut-être utiliser le traducteur que vous avez si vous voulez continuer

No the original message was in French. And I don't want to get into trouble. So, you might try a translator program to translate the original post. I sort of mentioned that in the post too. I hope I don't get into trouble for mentioning that?

Yea I can't understand a word of any of that. Why would you get in trouble? Is it something that I need to read? I mean like are they talking to me and if so is that something important?? Bc if not then I'm good and not worried about figuring it out. Unless it's something that could really help me. Then I guess I'll take the time out to try to figure out what their all saying. Just Saying Lol

Oh Ok, That's what is was wondering. It said Viola or something like that and that's why I thought they were trying to say something to me. Please just excuse me, I'm kind of ditsy or silly. I Don't really know how to say it.lol Well I'll just say I'll probably end up asking Alot of Dumb or Maybe even Questions with the Answer being Obvious throughout all these lessons. I swear it seems like I'm even getting more ditsy the older I get. Which is unfortunate for me..... But it's Hilarious To My Family. Just Saying. 😂🤷🤣

I am kinda confused about the keywords and writing articles.
when I pick up a phrase.

Does it have to be 100% accurate?
For example. if I fit in my title "Diapers FOR Babies"
it won't show in google if someone type "Diapers Babies"?

both words are inside of "Diapers for Babies".

B. about stuffing:

should I really be careful not to repeat any sentence or words that I write? aren't there some rules or something ? for example, Google will approve stuffing the same keyword up to 5 times?

I'd happy to have more clarification on that.

Thank you, good people

Good question Ido and a common one. When you choose your keywords to search, yes you want them to make sense. You'll get more accurate research results using 'diapers for babies' or best diapers for babies' instead of just diapers babies. For using the keywords in your article, you want to use it in your title, the first paragraph and maybe at the end of your article ie. in the conclusion or summary paragraph. Hope this answers your question and helps you.

Hello,
I'm stuck at Creating my Custom Menu
My page is bit different from Kyle's tutorial where I can only see Menu Name and below that (and add menu from the column on the left). I seem to be missing Home &
Privacy Policy.
When I check on left on Post, I have others and not the ones mentioned above.
For your information and help with thanks.

Yammey

try click on view all on the pages in the menu - it may show more pages you should be able to find your privacy policy - assuming you have created one....( posts or pages whichever you have created)
for the home - choose a custom menu item and add your url address and description of home.
good luck
phil
