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 you 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 ,Just joining and very new to this. My reason for doing so is to sell my handcrafts . I am retired and want to make money at home. I am looking for a way to sell it and get paid with out having to go to bazaars or have all the people in my home. Also when a person gets set up in here is it recommend to go to premium and pay a fee in order to sell or can you sell at the starter package?

Hi Robin,

At the starter package, you get a siterubix subdomain which remains the property of WA, however if you upgrade to Premium you can purchase your own .com domain to sell your wares and hosted with WA with your premium membership or elsewhere.

It is advisable to go Premium, as the training here is second to none. However it is totally your choice.

Please ask as many questions as you'd like going forward.

Welcome to WA, wish you success in your endeavors.

Is it suggested that you do all your profile, adding pictures etc prior to upgrading to premium ?

Totally your choice to upload a selfie perhaps, edit bio, complete your money goals etc.

You can get sales while you are a starter member, but it is much more difficult than when you are a premium one.

Hello everyone,
I'm on lesson# 8 and my website is looking a bit messy. Somehow, I messed up and I don't know where or how to trace my steps back. I have the "title" of the website on the far left instead of it being in the center and the "Home, About Nikki, and Privacy Policy" on the far right next to each other instead of being one above the other. And under the title on the far left I have "About Nikki" which my first post. Under that I have "Admin and date". And right under that I have "About Niki" again which is a bit redundant.
Please help. How can I rearrange things in order?
Thankfully,
Nicole

Hi hi!

So I have a question. I am busy going through the initial training videos and am at the "Build Your Website" video. I just want to make sure I can do this before I go through all the videos and realise I should have been hunting for better options. I want to build an ecommerce store that sells my own products - at this stage it sounds like I can only sell other people's products. Can I build my site based on my own products? So people come to my site, go through my products, pay on my site for my products?

You can certainly build a site for your own products. There are several here that have similar sites.

Thank you so much! I have spend weeks building my product and getting my team together - I am so excited :) The only problem I have had was getting an acceptable hosting site that can do what I need and is actually affordable. It seems like my search might be over.

Hi all I'm really starting to enjoy all the education and training so much so that now I'm actually starting to think about it day and night which I never thought would happen. It's still very early days of course but I think I'm slowly but surely getting the taste for this. A big thank you to every single person on WA you really are a helpful bunch.
