How Will YOU Make Money Online?
Great question! The reality is that there are many ways to make money online. However, people often get distracted by the "latest and greatest" product or service, and as a result, they are never able to build a successful and revenue-generating business.
Today, I will guide you through one of the most fundamental yet powerful processes of generating revenue online. It is a proven process that we use, and one that Wealthy Affiliate members follow.
It is called Affiliate Marketing, and it is the ultimate "make money" process that worked 17 years ago and will continue to work 17 years from now.
The best part about affiliate marketing is that you don't have to create your own products or services. You simply find products or services that you're passionate about, promote them to your audience, and earn a commission on every sale.
I have created a video lesson (below) that I recommend that you check out when you get a chance. This is going to walk you through the process of building a business online, and what it looks like. If you understand this, you understand the BUSINESS!

There are a lot of really exciting draws to building an affiliate marketing business, and leveraging this business model to generate revenue online.
Affiliate marketing is a great way to make money online because it's:
- Simple: Anyone can do it, regardless of their experience or skills.
- Scalable: You can earn as much money as you want, depending on how much effort you put into it.
- Lots of Options. There are over 550 MILLION products/services that you are going to be learning how to sell as an affiliate marketer.
- Passive: Once you set up your affiliate marketing campaigns, you can earn money even while you sleep.
Here is a quick diagram outlining how the simple process of an affiliate marketing transaction works.
As you move through the training, you are going to be building out your very own affiliate marketing business. It starts with you choosing a direction for your business, which we are going to cover next lesson. ;)
Great job so far!

What would be the best way to go about this in the beginning? Eventually I would love to have them both going
When deciding on a niche and trying to narrow down to a more specific niche, I recommend you ask yourself the following question:
I want to help people that ______________.
Fill in the blank and you are going to be much closer to a specific audience.
Also, I recommend that you use the Niche Finder AI (Artificial Intelligence) platform here at WA:
If you plug your ideas in there, you are going to get lots of concepts for narrowed down niches. After you do this and if you want to run any further ideas by me, let me know and I will give you a hand. :)
Also what happens when you run out of "searches"? Do you have to purchase more? If so, for how much?
And jumping ahead a bit, a similar question for Jaaxy. When I go to it, it asks me to sign up and says I have so many free uses (I believe it may have been 30). Do I have to pay more after that? If so, how much?
For context, I just rejoined as a premium member after having been gone for several years so the way everything works here now is very new to me.
Check out Kyle's Vlog The Brand New "Niche Finder" Platform Has Launched! -------------
You need to click the QSR manually each time to reveal a figure value, as Jaaxy Lite is included with a premium subscription to the platform.
If that's not it.
You may need to empty the browser cache, refresh and try again. Try the URL in a different browser or mobile device.
If that doesn't solve it.
You may go to
Under WA settings, click options and make sure your email is connected to Jaaxy.
And if that doesn't solve it.
You need to reach out to Kyle on their profile space.
You are given 50 searches per month, these will be renewed each month, you can't buy any extra.
As a Premium member, you should have unlimited searches with Jaaxy, it should be connected to your account already.
Click on your profile photo at the top right of the screen, and go to Account Settings.
Check if the email address within Jaaxy, is the same as your WA account.
Just want to know what works best and what is scalable or may be both methods can be applied? Little confused by looking at different methods people are applying nowadays. Thanks
Initially, I would run with SEO, and as soon as your website is making commissions, you may reinvest your proceeds with ads if you so wish.
Also, please be aware with ads alone, as soon as you stop paying; the traffic stops; however, if you have an SEO-optimized website, you will find that traffic will continue.
Of course, there are other ways to monetize your website, by ad networks, for example, provided it services compelling information content to your readers and visitors.
I hope this helps.
You can, for example, do YouTube reviews showing your hands. However, the personal touch adds to the equation.
The way I see it, if folks like you, they will purchase from you.
People just need to feel as though there is someone behind the content, and that they are there to help them. That is key to establishing trust, and converting.
