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"!

Heyy, so I had a couple of questions regarding selecting a niche. Please help me, thanks in advance : )
Is it possible to have a multi-niche website, where I can write content about more than 1 thing on the same site?
Also, does a niche have to focus on one particular thing or can it be a little more generalized but in the same category itself

Hi - only one niche on a website. Otherwise, you will confuse your audience and Google will not see you as an authority on your subject.

Take a look at my training on how to narrow down the pets niche to give you a better idea.

Hi,

No, a niche a website. Otherwise, you'd confuse Google and your visitors.

You niche has to be narrow in the beginning using low competition keywords until such time it starts gaining traffic, traction and authority, and then you may think to scale. Kindly let us know if you require further assistance.

Hi, yes you can however the learning curve would you steeper as communications would cease up, however it is possible. It can take 3 - 6 months to see any income. This is a long term commitment and takes months of consistent work

However you could remain a starter indefinitely and your siterubix subdomain remains valid for six months.

Actually I have too niches am basing on and this too niche is my favorite one is hanging out book camping niche and the other one is health and fitness product, so I really don't know the right one to go for at this moment am kind of confused so I really need a good feed back with this,

Hi,

Which of the two, you are passionate about more and can write lots of content. Healthy and Fitness product is something you would promote vs Health and fitness, however too broad and need narrowing down.

What type of fitness, to what group, what will you be writing about, what issues will you be discussing? Tips, training, frequency etc

Again the camping part is same why type where and to whom. who's going to benefit most from what you have to offer. Who's your target audience?

However it has got to be a niche a website, but would advice going with the one site for starters.

Thanks I really appreciate your concept on my answer but like your word am going to focus on the one I can right about and get a tagetable audience for the sales

Hello! Ok I surrender! Can I delete my website and start over?! I was getting along fairly well till I got to the Seo plugin, and then somehow I got off course.😪. So I guess I need to just start over. (Actually I need a niche). Ty anyone got a suggestion?

Peace, Larry.

Hope you figured out your AIOSEO plugin issue.

As for niche ideas. I am attaching a blog that may give you some ideas. If you are referring to your xxx.siterubix.com site YES you can delete it and start over.

Thank you for responding. Sounds like solid advice and now that I’ve stepped away for a few minutes I seem to have recovered some clarity. I don’t believe I have done anything that can’t be fixed. So I’m h he ping to review the last three videos and see if I missed something.
Thank again I do so appreciate your input. If you don’t mind I would like to follow you.
Respectfully,
Larry.

Hi , thank you for the response and the links I’m pretty sure that niche thing worked itself out!! We will see. I will for sure check those links out.

I’m still knocking around seo trying to figure out why there’s something sandwiched in my title that I thought I had deleted. Also trying to figure out where the two h2 tags are.... grrrr. Anyhow thank you so much!
Peace and prosperity
Larry

Hi please see below tutorial If all else fails, you may delete and start again, however do save your work, you may do so in site content.

To delete click details on siterubix subdomain , scroll to bottom of page and click delete option

To build your site click here

And choose a free domain.

When you reference two H2 tags, do you ever use the Text tag in WordPress? It can look overwhelming at first but learning how to use that tab can save some time. You can put your own h2 tags in. Learning how is by looking at other H2 tags in the content body.

Did you delete all the prepopulated title page tag suggestions by AIOSEO? Is this causing the problem with your title?

If it's our own domain you will loose it, so perhaps you just need to adapt it a bit. If it's a siterubix then delete bit and start again

Hi
I have just finished watching the build a website video, which was really good. There is so much information on how to build your site that i am worried i will not remember what to do when it actually comes to starting, should this be a concern for me?
kind regards
Neil

It is good to complete each task for each lesson. They are meant to pilot you through various stages in running a website and to make you put into practice what you learned in a lesson as you move to another one. They ensure that you grow or advance as you follow one lesson to another as design by Wealthy Affiliates. I don't know if I answered you question?
