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!

Awesome, off to the next lesson now where you will be "choosing your niche"!

The sad part is that I am required to pay to resubscribe. I hope that there is a way to consistently access my account without paying monthly premium. I find it unfair since WA is not available in my country. This is actually the best affiliate that I know so far. I hope you can give me some advise :)

Hi - I am not sure what you are saying? You appear to have been a member for nearly 2 years. If you were to cancel your subscription you would lose all access to this platform. If you have a purchased domain hosted here, then you are given 30 days to move it to another hosting service.

When I started here at WA, i have complete access of my acc for 6 months I guess. Later, i noticed that I can no longer access my account and I need to Pay for premium so I can access it again. I just Resubscribe an hour ago so I am here again.

instead of paying monthly why not go yearlty - it really does cut the cost...
my.wealthyaffiliate.com/upgrade
but why would you think that you can access this service for free - once you have bocome a premium member you cannot go back to being a starter member on that account.
if wa is not available within your country - how are you on here, or are you not in your home country.
as Diane says - very confused

Actually, Im using premium at the moment. I was just thinking that in some country WA if free, maybe in these country where WA is free you can access your account in a limited way without paying premium.

there are certain countries that cannot start as free starter members - but to access all of thebenefits of premium membership everybody has to pay the premium fee.
the free starter account can access the first level of training and two classrooms - and they get access to two siterubix sites - after 7 days they lose the ability to write on the platform, but they can continue ot use their sites, until 6 months have apssed - when they need to make a decision to upgrade or have theri site deleted

now it's clear to me. Those 6months was part of the program. I find it hard to sustain the premium since I am not yet earning from this affiliate program. that is why i am curious if there is another way. thank you for the help, I really appreciate it :)

I joined WA a few years back and didn't see any success. Not so much because of the program but my health was an issue. I am new to affiliate marketing but not the concepts. I firmly believe that Clickfunnels can be an integral part of my success. Is that covered in this course? Thank you.

Hi Crushingyou,

I've considered Clickfunnels, but it is quite expensive.

My research advised that it was for people with an already established list, i.e. lots of people to send to.

The funnel "first' approach is setting yourself up for failure, and an expensive failure at that. The reality is that you shouldn't consider "email marketing" (which is what building a funnel is), until you first understand your audience, how to convert them, and you have a solid base of traffic.

I don't recommend worrying about an autoresponder or getting into email marketing until you have a source of traffic no less than 100 clicks per day.

If you focus on email marketing before that, it is far too premature and you will end up spending too much time on managing your list, broadcasts, follow-up sequences, integration into your site, etc...without focusing on the most important thing first. Traffic!

Hi Yoso,

1. Go into site content
2. Go to top on right you will see Templates
3. You will see About Me and Privacy page templates
4. those are the only two you need at this stage
5. You do not click on create a new template because those are there in template form for you already.

Hope this helps!

Hi - you don't need to delete your site. Click on Site Content. At the top of the page, you will see your own photo. Above your photo are 3 tabs - My Content, Writing Stats and the third one is Templates.

GordonMcQue Premium
On the first Site Content page, can you see the Templates box (it is after the My Content and Writing Stats boxes)?

I have a question before I start creating my website. I like the baby niche category which I know it is very popular since I use all the time because I have a daughter. For example if I get this niche i have to chose for example DIAPERING. That would be my niche? Or I have to narrow it down? Like changing table, diaper bags, etc. Thank for the help my friends.

Hi Joan,

No-one could "tell" you what is right for you.

As a grandparent I would suggest breaking it down into stages and have your site titles reflect this, e.g.:-

0-3 mths

3-6 mths

6-9 mths

9-12 mths

12-18 mths

18-24 mths

24 mths +

Fit the requirements and affiliate ops into each title.

You should be able to click on Websites > Site Content and then on Templates. There, you should see templates for various options including About Me, etc. Click on that to bring it up and start creating a post.
