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?

hey hi Vishal & welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

Super question & all questions are good ones here....

Yes ... it's all possible .... it's just that it will take much more effort on your part for the rate of return and also likely take a lot, lot longer ...

Suggest you get rolling on the step by step training with Kyle over the next few days or so and then decide ... where there's a will, there's always a Way to Success! ....

here's the blue link to the training for you ... All the very best to you .. cheerio ... :)

Hi - it's possible, but it will be much more difficult. You will only have limited access to the training, and after your first 7 days, you won't be able to communicate with other members or ask questions if you get stuck.

Do be aware, that even with a premium membership you would be unlikely to see any income for at least 3 months, and more realistically it would be 6 months. This is not a get rich quick scheme, you are building a genuine online business for your future.

Should I reconsider my niche if Google ads keywords shows competition is very high? Should I pick a niche based off of low competition keywords rather than my passions? Using Jaxxy would it be better to go with a high traffic, high competition keyword with an OK KQI, and a SEO rank of 73, or rather pick a lower traffic, lower competition keyword that has a great KQI and SEO rank in the 90's?

I wouldn't base your niche off a keyword or off Google Ads. There will be thousands of keywords you can target for your niche to obtain free organic traffic from search results pages

This is an exciting journey and scary too, I have just finished listening to the video on how affiliate marketing work and realized there are many things I have never thought I would achieve in life but I now believe I have come to the right platform of knowledge. But the truth is I'm a bit scared and overwhelmed.

Perfectly normal. Just don't let that bring you down, crush motivation, or make you feel you can't do it.
You can do it as long as you make a plan for your goals, put doable tasks there, and then stick to it. That's what I do every time I feel overwhelmed. I stop a take a bit of time to plan.
In here it's even easier because they are showing the plan for you.
Also, I've heard one of those millionnaire entrepreneurs say that he doesn't know the sentence "I can't do it" only the sentence "how can I do this? What does it take to do it?". Have that in mind, plan, and you'll be fine.

I did accidentally publish the Privacy Policy as a post ... however one thing I noticed is that the Hyperlinks were not inserted in the post, as I had expected them to....not sure why that is, When I put my website at the bottom of the "About Me" page it worked fine...not a big deal but really would prefer if the links were functioning...just a glitch maybe?

Hi - you don't need the links to work. If you think about it, if somebody is reading your Privacy Policy, they are already on your site. They don't need to click a link to take them there.
Reply
By law, you must make a policy link available and accessible at all times. My advice is to add it as a footer.

DianeScorpio Premium
Yes, I am aware that a Privacy Policy is a legal requirement. I was advising Amin that the URL to his website, mentioned within the policy, does not have to be a clickable link.
