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 Wealthy Affiliate members follow. It is also the ultimate "make money" process that worked 17 years ago and it is going to work 17 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 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 5 BILLION people online as of 2022 (YOUR audience) and these people are going to search engines, social media, or visiting websites for help all the time. They are buying at a rate we have never seen, which means the opportunity is only continuing to grow for YOU!

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" business 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 the first lesson, you should have already added your goals to your profile. But if not I recommend you so now. Make some ambitious goals for yourself, because this is the Internet. The opportunity is vast, and there is no "upper cap" to your potential that we are going to help you harness here at WA.

You can add your money goals, and edit them at any time directly on your profile.

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"!

i don't understand the "grades" here. I finished my profile some time ago and completed 3 tasks since then, but all I see is credit for having completed 8% of lesson 1. then I put check marks into the marginal area of each task, but as of today, the check marks were gone. Does anyone have a clue as to what's happening?

Hi again,

My problem was i think i jumped the gun a bit and tried to use the free domain which was part of my registration. I named the domain. It got a green tick and then the whole process went smoothly. However, I could not log in to the admin area. Is this because they need to register the domain first?

No one you build your website you should be able to login to it.

You may need to empty the browser cache, refresh and try again. Try URL in a different browser or mobile device.

You may also reset your password or synchronize if an option is available. However if issue persists please reach out to site support

Did you website show up now after you refreshed your browser..
https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites

Yes, starting with the free siterubix.com website is a great way to go because it can be MOVED to a dot com later. With the free siterubixccom domain name you can delete it and start over if you change you mind on your chosen niche.

Level 2 lesson 7 shows you now to BOVE a free siterubix.com to a dot com website.

I launched the website using a new domain. Should i delete the site and recreate it on the same domain, as it is still not appearing or allowing me access to the back end admin panel.

I have some ideas for niches related to things I am interested in. Shouldn't I choose a niche based on what people are searching for? It seems randomly choosing something I like vs existing high traffic niches, isn't the best strategy. I am new at this, but these are my thoughts on this. Any advice would be appreciated.
Thanks!

Hi - you will be expected to write a lot of content on your chosen niche, everything original, nothing copied and pasted.

Therefore, it makes sense that it should be a subject you are genuinely interested in and have some knowledge of, or at the very least, would enjoy researching.

There would be no point in choosing a niche based on it having high traffic if you have no interest in it and would get bored writing about it after the first few months.

Thank you for that perspective. That is helpful. You are right, I would have a hard time writing about something I have no interest in.
That helps me narrow my choices down.

It is natural to think that choosing high trafficked niched is a good for an affiliate marketer, but it can become boring or you may get burned out if you are choosing something only because of what you think it will do. It becomes hard to help people for a long period of time if passion is not there.

The more you know about your niche and the more passionate you have the better because you will understand the issues and problems people experience and you can provide in depth help.

You can get an idea of interest people may have in your niche by doing a google search and seeing the auto suggest keywords, people also ask section and ads placed for it. But that is not necessary to check now if you have a passion for your niche.

It is possible to make your niche a long term online business for many years and continue to earn income from it..

Thank you for giving me more insights on how to think about this part of the process.

You need aim for ONE focused niche with a specific group of people, I'd go with what's best resonates with me.

ONE niche, a website. Products and programs can be varied however all must be relevant to the niche.

"After you website is created then you will add content to it about your niche and later add affiliate links so you can make some money."
Gods2 had written that within his post to Jghwebbrand. I am curious as to what he means. he is talking about one's niche.
have you any thoughts?
this is the post so you don't go crazy trying to find it:
@Gods2 You will choose a niche first. What you are passionate about to share and help others with. After you choose one niche (its one niche for a website) then you think about a name for your website. Your domain name can be included in your niche idea if you choose.. After you website is created then you will add content to it about your niche and later add affiliate.
