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!

Hi, normally the drop down menu is supposed to be your categories.

For instance if you have in your menu "Blog", you can then have as drop down "Learn", "my tips" etc.

Hope you get it. It depends on your categories.

I guess you created categories for your posts

I had two questions...

1. I set up my first website through siterubix before purchasing a domain. Because I don't want to purchase a domain and have a name I don't think works for the content of my page. Can I switch my page over to a domain name later if I decide on one?

2. I know that a name doesn't need hours of reflection but I still like feedback on whether others think it will work. My page title is "Why Movies Are Cool". Is this an attractive name? My aim is mostly to argue against negative arguments people may have for movies or against particular titles...

Hi, first question is yes.

You can use GoDaddy valuation tool to find a memorable name for your site. May I add domain names nowadays are not effected by SEO.

If you believe the above suffices with your niche and what you are trying to convey and is available why not register - thou I wouldn't go over 16 characters. (norm is 6 - 14 characters)

You can also use namemesh.com to find a name, look out for the SEO & MIX columns. Or you may like try "Lean Domain Search" instead.

Just ran a search, it is available however not memorable.

Hi - you are not showing as a premium member. You are using a free account which you started 12 days ago. Are you sure your payment went through? Or do you perhaps have a second account under another email address?

Actually, I believe I have found your other account as shown below. You need to log out of this account by clicking on your profile photo and selecting the logout option. Then log back in under the other email address.

Hello, I watched a video about installing All in one SEO, but I have a problem because it doesn't look the same as in the video, it's a different version and actually actually pulls me to buy that package. It doesn't really offer any other option than to upgrade to Pro. When I click on SEO settings, the settings window does not appear, but immediately uploads me to the Upgrade Pro. What should I do?

Christine - don't worry about making a mistake as these can be fixed - what can't is inaction....
why don't you think it is corrrect - have you got a menu at the top of your site - yes - it is correct
no- then you need to tell the menus where to be placed on your site.
you can create as many menus you like and only display one or two as your theme allows...this maybe useful in the future to test different menus...
again the widgets have a play in a test site - doesn't matter if you mess it up - just delete it and try again ( delete is ubder details for that site in sitemanager...)
I hope you manage to get it sorted
