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"!

Hi Joe,

Being confused is part of the game of life. If you get stuck just ask for help. This is a great community that helps each other succeed.

Granted, I have only been here for almost 2 months, but every question I have ever had someone has tried to help me.

And like you I have had my AHA! moments.

Regards,

Hi,cbmercado,

Do you know the feeling,when the problem is starring you right in the face?,...Well that's how I felt yesterday.
And,because I never had someone there at hand,..well I felt low.
But hey,..I sat down in the morning...got my computer going,got my notes out..had a REAL DEEP THINK..about my situation,..and it just all slowly came to me.

I am back on form now.
I had set myself a challenge with the days I had free on WA..and wanted to see how strong I was.

Thanks again for your concern

Hi Joe,

I have been there my friend. There were times I was up till sunrise trying to figure a problem out.

I would be so exhausted that I would go to bed thinking about the problem.

And just as I slowed my mind enough to think more clearly I would get an idea of how to fix a problem.

Then I would sleep better wake up and do the fix I thought of.

You are strong, so be strong. Have at it Joe.

Regards,

Hi Joe,

If I remember right there should be a Privacy Policy template in Websites>Site Content. You should fill out the teplate and when you are ready to put it in your website click on the "Publish" button on top of the page on the right. It is a green button.

Hope this helps,

Hi! I'm excited to join this platform. I am into healthcare and would love to write about related topics (such as recipes/diet, exercise tips, tests to go for in different health conditions and why etc.) Do those make sense? Also, I'm wondering, does WA makes sense for someone like me who doesn't have any product to sell. And I'm just starting out with online stuffs like this, don't have much yet to upgrade to Premium. Any advice. Thank you

That’s perfectly fine. You can start as a Starter member and start making money through your blog promoting other people’s products, that’s Affiliate Marketing. The following links from Nathaniell, a top WA member and blogger can help:

Hi Kyle
While trying to create custom menus, I could not rearrange my bars the way I want them to be e.g I want my favourite posts to be under my recent comments and i don't want the archive. Also the privacy policy and about Tracey does not show.

Okay, thanks had a quick look, you need to reword your post URL to "About Tracey" this is explaining exactly what the post is about. You can keep the title of the post if you like but would have About Tracey at the top so it is not confusing.

Again with the privacy policy page reword the URL to just "Privacy Policy" and lose the long-winded explanation. Just have Privacy Policy as your header on the page.

Trust this helps :)
Remember to keep it simple so readers can see exactly where they are and what they want to read.
