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"!

Hey WA community, I joined WA in 2014 with a premium membership and posted my goals at that time. In 2016 I cancelled my membership after my website was destroyed by a vicious virus (my fault!)

Fast forward......I just rejoined WA on January 3, 2022, with a premium membership. I notice that my previous goals are still posted and I would like to post my new goals. How do I delete the old ones and add new ones? It's been awhile and I've forgotton a lot of "how to's". Thanks in advance

Hi all, I have been away from WA for an insane amount of time! But have always paid my subs diligently through the years to somehow remain in contact...but without taking any action though.
Travelling (Travelling spouse ) the world with my wife who is in the foreign service of The Netherlands. We have resided in 7 countries so far and are about to relocate to our 8th by mid-2022. Most of the countries are not your average holiday destinations and so I have discovered the value of a VPN! I now no longer have any daily obligations so at long last, it's my time... 2022 will be a great start to complete my Bootcamp training and to take it into the future in order to help millions of people out there realize their hopes and dreams. My wish is to have 3 websites eventually.
Allow me to wish you all here at WA a highly successful and prosperous 2022...WA IS SIMPLY THE BEST!

Take care................... Johan

A little over a year ago I started working on blogging and affiliate marketing so its not totally foreign to me. I had to put it on hold and trying to start again. Does Lesson 3: Making Money, cover finding affiliate programs and using your blog/site to link to recommended products? It would be helpful to see a syllabus of the course before upgrading.
Reply
AbieAJ Premium Plus
Hi

Totally yes.

I am afraid that's not possible. We are members just like you and management guidelines, hope you can understand.

However, you can always direct your question to Kyle on their profile page

you can get to see some more of what each level contains by clicking on the online entrepreneur certification at the top left and selecting the different levels...
remember this course is catering for every niche so it cannot be specific to each niche...
it will give guidelines of what works and the very fine details you will need to work out....
it does give you a structured approach to building your business...
but is not something to race through...
have fun

If you want to find Affiliate Programs? Just try this in Google; your Niche or Subject + Affiliate Program. That is it; just try that in Google.

Hi Kyle...
another great video.. thank you. Things are becoming clearer at this point. Its not actually as complicated as I had envisioned..

For now the only question I have, are regarding plugins for a theme I've chosen for my website... Will this be covered In the upcoming lessons or?
Reply
AbieAJ Premium Plus
HI

If you have selected a theme that want to install plugins you may or may do so, they are there to aid your template.

However if you do, note them down in case you do not like the theme and wants to change it. You'd know what to uninstall.

I’m using an iPhone 5SE (as my laptop is currently not working) trying to add menu and navigation to my website and finding it difficult.
I’m unable to view my website to check that I’ve added header menu to my website.
Trying to access my WordPress account in order to get a better view. But not sure of my password
Can anyone help resolving these issues?

Thanks

Hi

You may want to zoom out if you can. You can reset your pw in site manager

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites

Sometimes when we copy and paste, we tend to add a space, best if you input manually.

If issue persists, you may like to contact support

Hello AbieAJ
I’ve not been able to zoom out or reset page view in site manager to make viewing more easy on my iPhone.
I have gone back over the menus and navigation training video, just to reinforce my learning for actioning this task.
I’ll attempt to set up the menu and remove some of the widgets on my website again.

One more question, can I access my WordPress account using the back office admin for my website on WA?

Thanks
Ruth

No Offense meant; trying to help. But, I would just say; until you can get your laptop fixed? If you want to?

If you have the money? You might consider buying a new Laptop on Amazon or E Bay? Just a suggestion. Trying not to Offend; trying to help.

Hope this helps and encourages?
