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 again.

I have another question. I just registered domain. Once payment was approved a notice said it takes up to 24 hours to propagate through the system.

M question is twofold.
Will I get a notification when it has done so?
Should I wait until such notification to continue to build a webpage?

Thanks in advance

Hi

If me I would check at a later time, usually takes even shorter than 24 hours.

Kindly let us know when needing help or have further questions.

Building a page isn't turning out to be the 30 second time frame as mentioned. Not that I thought it would, life is never that simple really.
I built a website 10 years ago with Wordpress and didn't care for it then, not sure I like it much better today.

Can anybody tell me this: When you go searching through the themes, are you leaving the WA site and going right to Wordpress? Or is it more of a virtual visit to WP?

Cheers.

Hi

Things have now changed it is a lot easier with WA site builder, you need go to

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites/build

Enter credentials and follow procedure.

To change themes, Appearance > Themes and Add new. Input keyword find what are you looking for, install and activate.

You need be logged in to your WordPress sites back office in order for you to do that.

It is also recommended that you have a back up theme at all time i.e. the Twenty TwentyOne.

You stay on the WA website when you search for a theme using
appearance -> themes -> new themes.

The value of a website is in its content and the content must be original; therefore takes time, research and effort.

The real motivating factor for building a website is threefold. First and foremost a passion for the niche interest chosen, the 2) the desire to help people 3) Make some money. The factors need to be thought of in that order.

The way WP is setup these days you don't need to know any code. You just have to learn the elements and how you want to design them.

We wish you excitement with a niche and success will follow..

Thanks guys

I think maybe I was having a bad day/moment. Add to that a preconditioning in my head about WP.

I continue to press ahead, though it will be a bit slower than I had envisioned.

My motivating factors may not be in the order you suggest, though not entirely self serving, I hope. My first was to make money. This is something I have been investigating in various avenues for quite some time. My reason for making money is a little more in line with helping others, my family first (if reasonably successful) then others. As for a niche I like, I found something I am interested in and will proceed with it going forward as learning tool if nothing else. That is if successful keep it, if not after 6 mos or a yr take what I learn and try again.

H ave a great day.

Hello future wealthies..
The content I found so far in all the lessons is great, however I'd like to ask the following :
I just watched the video " keyword mastery ", and I noticed that the video was shot in 2017, so my question is :
Will the system, the tools and way we are going to learn this business, as efficient as it was 5 years ago, or do we risk to learn something a bit obsolete that needs a refresh ?

Thank you

The process is still the same and still works very well. The training here is undergoing new updates as we write this post. Any training that is no longer relevant has already been removed and brand new training also continues getting added. It's only getting better with WA.

Hi

I'd contact site support have them check it out for me, have you recently transferred or pointed your domain to WA servers?

I've reached out to tech now but maybe I'm missing a step or doing something wrong. Maybe just delete and start a new website and makes sure I'm doing it correctly?

Yes you can too but Site Support would be able to fix your site in no time. You may want to save your work in Site Content.

Disregard this message if site support has responded to you,
but if you redirected your site to your own domain name you should not be able to access .siterubix.com because you moved your. content to your own website and are telling the search engines to look for your content at your own domain.

Can you access your own domain? You should be able to and that is where you should be working if I understand what your are saying correctly.

I think they are all great ideas You could check on google see what is the most researched category and start there, with the two free sites you can do two know and maybe later down the road sign up for the premium and get 10 websites. good luck look forward to see your site

Just so you're aware, with the free starter membership only one free site is allowed at a time. They used to allow two in the past but this changed in March 2020. You can view the post from Kyle outlining the changes here: Best, Shannon
