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!

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

Hi Kyle,
Unfortunately, at the moment, I am at a total standstill as I can't find this window on the WA site to enable to move on.
I have sent 2 other requests but haven't received a reply, also posted to the wider community and no reply. Perhaps the question is too silly, or just with Christmas everybody is too busy.
HELP
Thanks
Gwenyth

Hi,
WA has gone thru a face change. So no everything you saw on the left side of the screen which was the menu is now on the top in a horizontal menu. The exact page you show in your image does not exist in that format anymore. what it looks like the the new "home" tab in the horizontal menu.

I attached a screen shot showing what some of the horizontal menus items display.

Hi - you had 2 replies earlier on. Look further down this page. The platform has been upgraded, it doesn't look like that any more. Everything that was on the left hand side, is now across the top of the screen.

Hi guys, I feel stuck on this content creation. I'm confused as it requires me to narrow my Niche to a product that I have an EXPERIENCE in and write on it.
As a nurse, I can talk about disease condition and their management, how then can a niche be carved out from this and how can this yield money by affiliating with say Amazon since it's about health education and healthful living?
Reply
JoeRebisz Premium
It doesn't need to be narrowed down to a product you like. Your niche is something you have an interest in or passion about. Or maybe even a hobby of yours. Amazon definitely isn't the only affiliate program out there. There could be products you can promote for certain diseases or management thereof.

You can just start writing about your passion and monetize it later you can find many ways to make money after you get your site indexed

Amazon may carry related books or videos. Since you are so familiar with the subject you could write your own ebook and charge for it. It could be posted on your website or Amazon or another Affiliate program that manages book affiliate programs. You could type a related phrase in Amazon and see what comes up. I saw healthy living gifts, cookbooks and cookware.

Hope that gives you some ideas.

Hello
I'm finding it difficult to get a niche.
I'm a registered Nurse and I've lived and worked as a nurse, I'm feeling a niche in Health would be good but I don't know how to go about it.
Asides my profession I enjoy music but I don't know much about music so getting a niche is difficult for me.
Finally, I was into women fashion (clothes, handbags and shoes) years back in a traditional method.
I really need a suggestion of which aspect of these that can make a good niche.

They all could be great niches. Health is an industry, you could focus on one thing, something you saw often as a nurse and that you want to educate people about.

As a premium member, you can build up to 10 websites. So you can start with one and earn money from it and then build another one in the next year if you want to diversify and stay motivated.

There would be lot of niches for sure related to nursing. I have even seen websites dedicated to comfortable shoes.

Some of the questions you can ask yourself to identify what you are really passionate about are:
As a nurse, I wish I could have done more to help or teach people about ________________.
If people would only do __________ it would make so much difference in their lives. Here's how I can help now.

This is a difficult point for me, choosing the niche. I am Italian but I live in Belgium. I have a passion in life and this is all about esthetical personal change, total make over, look, style. Maybe you know the program in TV "body fixers". I worked a few years ago also with a plastic surgeon specialized in femminisation (a man who wants to change gender). I found that really interesting. I would like to stay in this sector and find a niche in there but first of all: do I dedicate to the Italian market (Italian site) To the Belgian market (site in Dutch)? To EU? And second, would this be a too small market area maybe?I mean... Not sure this could be something easy to develope online. Any suggestions to help me? Shoot☺️

I am not familiar with either countries market volume. Do you hear much talk about it in either country? Are there a lot of shops? You might check google and see what websites come up.

Look for affiliate programs related to your niche. It will help you decide where you want to target your audience.

Hey there, if you need a hand with choosing your niche, I suggest this blog post and it'll be all clear: If you want to target audience in Italy or Belgium, you'll have to write in their languages.

As a new mom I want to take advantage of my recent experiences and knowledge to be able to share my stories on my website for my niche. I was thinking of doing "first time mom gifts" as my niche but I'm wondering if that is too broad? How could I narrow it down further? Thanks in advance!
Reply
OCH3943 Premium
I thought it may be narrow if you are only talking about gifts for first time moms if I understand it correctly.

I thought it would be interesting if you blog about your experiences as a first time mom which allows you to really scale across various topics that other first time mom will also be interested in at each phase. Which also mean that at each phase of your child's life, there will always be something new to cover, you will never get bored and you could promote things that you use.

I'm thinking this would be really interesting. The only thing is whether you are ready to also showcase photos of yourself and child's life in public but which can provide a very powerful emotional draw.

Just my 2 cents.

Cheers,
Richard

That was my original thought but I wasn't sure if "first time mom" was too broad. I would love to share my experiences and there have been so many helpful products and services along the way that I could talk about. Eventually my hope would even be able to promote WA as how I quit my day job to be able to stay home with my child! Hehe...see what I did there 😏 Thanks for your input!

Promoting WA could sit nicely under a first time mom as a post to share how you as a first time mom can also earn a side income while taking care of your baby. 😆

Hey there, your niche is narrow enough, even too narrow, in my opinion, but well enough to get you started on the right foot.

If you want, I suggest reading this post from Kyle's blog where he explains how narrowing down and scaling your niche back up works in real life. I feel you can relate to it as well. I hope this helps,

Ivan :)

I think it would be neat to use gifts for a first time mom and then with your experiences as a mom you could expand to keep us with what you learn. It would be nice to get first time moms to follow you.

We wish you much success.

First time moms could be a tab on your website. You niche could be gifts for soon to be moms or future moms and start from there. Good luck!
