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!

Hi, to add a photo, click on the circle where your image should appear and go to profile. There you will see how to add an image. With clickbank, etc, all the info you need to get started is in the training. Ask questions, send me a message anytime. Your English is great! Good luck

I am an English language teacher and I think you are doing a fine job of communicating in English.
First, go through the training and get your website set up and indexed.

Creat 10 or more posts/articles.

Then go to an affiliate program outside WA and use their software to insert links.

When a visitor clicks your redirecting link and then buys something, you earn a commission.

Hi everyone,
I enjoying the training, thank you WA for such an in depth training!
I have a question about putting links into my written content, obviously I am going to have links in the content, but is there a guide as to how often I should or could do it? Does it affect google ranking in anyway?

I am asking as obviously these will be mostly affiliate links and i know how google and other platforms dont really like them.
Thanks

There certainly is and it will come up shortly. Too many links get noticed. And I'm not sure about what google thinks about affiliate links. what gave you the impression they weren't liked?

If, on the other hand, you are promoting product your links won't have anything to do with WA.

Yes, the training is good and I have been enjoying it also.
All the best,
Garry.

Dear Garry,
Thank you very much for your answer.
What do you mean when you say that "too many links get noticed"?
Thanks

Hi - it is recommended that you only have 1 affiliate link for every 500 written words. It is fine to have other links as well, both to your own posts and to external sites.

Question on this lesson 9 - Understanding Keywords, The Star of Your Content

Hello Kyle, thanks for the lesson.
On your Jaaxy dashboard, once you type the 'key word' and search, you get results on AVG, Traffic, QSR, SEO - all the data are listed.
But on my Jaaxy dashboard, once entered the key word, the results are not opened, unless I open manually one by one (QSR,SEO, etc) - see the attached figure.
What can I do to have all the data opened ?
Thank you

I don't think you can open all the data. But, I am not sure? But, if you want to try with this? I hope this helps? Try Alphabet Soup; if you want to? If that doesn't work. You may have to open each Keyword separately. I am not sure? But, hope this helps?

Everything looks Great here. But, if anyone has any further questions? Don't be afraid to ask.

Thanks Michael,
I have tried with alphabet soup, I got the same result.
I have to open each keyword separately.

Click on all of them. I'm certain your finger can manage and each click is free. Get QSR, get QSR.

Sorry, I'm being stupid as usual. It gets me into trouble sometimes.
I'm sure you have sorted it all out by now.

Hi - we are given the Lite version of Jaaxy, which means you have to click to see the results. You would have to pay extra for an upgraded version which does this automatically.

There is a lot of preparation to be done first...

Then you write about something and recommend a product with a link.

If a visitor clicks your link and then buys something, you get a commission.

The estimated time it takes to get to that point is 3 months minimum if you work hard. There is a lot to learn. You need passion commitment and some money to survive on till you get there.

If God put it on your heart to do this, ask Him for help, you'll be surprised.
All the best,
Garry.

I am having a very difficult time with Wealthy Affiliate training. I am at step 7-About me page. and I am experiencing major writer's block because my niche is Pet Care but I don't know to write. I cannot write about a product that I don't yet know what it is. Pet Care is a very broad subject and I can't write about pet health and then sell a pet toy. I can't write about dog food and then try to sell a dog house. If I were trying to sell a complete site with all of the pet products or at least a few, I could generalize my about page. I had the same problem with the title and description of my site. I just left the description blank because I don't have a product yet. How is this possible without knowing what you are going to be selling?

I am about done! I cannot handle the frustration!

Hi Wendy,
OK, take a breath. It's ok. This is what the training is for.
Why did you pick pet care? Is it because you love pets and want to share advice and products that would benefit the owners?
What I recommend is giving yourself a narrower focus to start. Concentrate on a smaller sub-niche, like senior dog health. Start writing about what senior dogs struggle with, and then you'll find products that can relieve those symptoms. Like supportive beds, senior dog food, etc. You'll find that you will attract more traffic with a narrower niche to start.
You can begin to expand with other pets and such later on when your site is more established. You have lots of space to expand with "pet care".
As for your "about me" page, talk a little about yourself and what led you to pick this topic. Do you have any pet stories you can share?
It doesn't have to be long. Just an introduction so your visitors know you're a real person.
I hope this helps. Message me if you need more help.
Cheers,
Suzanne

Hi Wendy, take it easy. You can do this. Important to remember that . If you are passionate about Pet Care writing will fall into place naturally. You are to provide helpful information on your website about Pet Care. Do not worry about the products right now. We want to get your website ranked with Google, and you will do that by writing naturally about your passion, taking care of pets. YOU CAN DO THIS...

Is the niche you choose something that interests you? If not you should rethink it.
