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 about to write my about me page and I would like to know can this be done when I have no idea of what company's products I will be promoting.
At this stage, I know nothing about the company, their products, the companies policy, company profile, is it possible to write an about me page without this information?

Yes, JBSweeney! You're about me page is about how you feel, what you are all about, and what your passion is all about. When you get up in the morning what do you like? How do you feel? What are your dreams? For me, my passion is no longer working in a cubicle and for someone else (a w2 worker) I am all about freelancing so I am about taking people thru the journey of going from being an employee to at a freelancer (a 1099 worker) and what that entails down to the technology that you need for your new life, the comfy clothes that make you feel good while working as a Virtual Assistant, What type of bags, backpacks, briefcases are awesome when traveling and working at the same time because you are no longer confined to a desk in a building from 9 to 5 you can work where you want to, etc. So you will share with the world what makes you tick and along with the show and telling people how wealthy affiliate helps to change your life and when they go to a blog or build a website they will want to click on a link on your website to get the same change of life avenue and how you feel and what drives you will also drive you to what other affiliate products or services you are passionate about that correspond to what you do in life or what you love in life. That is what you're about you page is about and you can and probably will change what is on that page as you grow and develop and learn. I hope this helps!

Definitely yes. About page tells something about you. I know that there's a template that you can model in the site content. You check out the about page of other members to get some idea. Don't stress yourself with about page. The most important part of your site will be your posts to be indexed and ranked by Google. Hope this helps. Good luck.

The keywords are just there to give a general topic such as babies, baby clothing, baby toys, etc.

As for your home description that should be what your site is about, not what you're selling (i.e., MySite.com provides reviews and recommendations for all things babies, etc.).

Thank you for reading this and guidance.

@muzammil24. Hi. If you are trying to change the author (Admin), there is no way to change the name from Admin to your name..

The only way to fix this, I believe, add a new member. When you add the new member, you are adding yourself, so make sure that you select Admin instead of subscriber or contributor.

You can add a new member profile from the left menu towards the bottom where it says "Add New".

I hope this helps..

Have a blessed day..

I think there is a way to change admin to your name. Kyle has a tutorial on that. You should also have a Gravatar assigned to your name so that it will always appear in every post you create. Go to tutorial then type how to create Gravatar, you'll get clear answer from Kyle. Hope this helps.

I'm not the one that was looking to change the admin name.

But thank you for helping.

I appreciate you..

Have a blessed day..

I am following along with all the procedure and steps to create a content but as of right now I feel overwhelmed since I really don’t have a niche or what type of content I should put on my website. Can anybody help me by giving me some ideas as to what to write about in my website? Thanks and I would really appreciate it.

It's so easy. All you need to do is just to select or chose what interest you the most. Then you move on with it. But you need to get the right key words. Because your business will be based on that.

Hope this helps

Hi Antorozco1, nice to meet you, it is normal to feel a little demoralized because you don't know how to go ahead in the configuration of your site. Here in WA, in addition to having the tools and also all the bootcamp to make it, you have the support of your colleagues, I am here for you! So what did you not understand and what are your doubts? have you already chosen a niche or are you still on the high seas? You have to understand what you like to do, if you have a passion, if you are a master in some art or profession, you have to tell what you can do or you are passionate about, if by chance you would like to choose something you like but you have no experience, it is not a problem, you can become authoritative over time, everyone, anyone of us was not born learned, what we know how to do we learned over time, if you like it I ask you what you would like to do and why? Give me an answer .. I'd like to help you ....... Come on, you can do it

@MarcoGaviano your information was very helpful and thank you for your support. I would like to talk about fitness and vitamins that can help anyone with their daily workouts at the gym, but I have no clue what to say since that is not my specialty area.

Hi, I know exactly how you feel!! I thought I had an idea for a niche but now having looked at 'key words' and the affiliate program it's going to be a no go so I need to go back to the drawing board. I'm hopeful that as I progress through the training though, it'll all start to make sense and I'll come up with other ideas. :-)

Alibaba is a site that sells products. It’s in the Apps store. You can stream through it to give you an idea. Run it by Kyle and boom. Off you go.
