Because of many online scams, some people are doubting, “Is It Possible to Make Money Online?”
The answer is “Definitely yes!”
Nowadays there are probably tens of thousands or even hundreds of thousands of people who are making a full-time income online. Some of them are making $3,000/month, and some of them are making $10,000/month. The most successful ones may reach the $100,000/month mark.
In this post, I will show you five friends from Wealthy Affiliate who are earning +$10,000/month online.
Remember that they are just ordinary guys like you and me and they didn’t have any particular talent before they started.
All of these guys have done their income by doing affiliate marketing which means that you don't even need any own products to get started.
Let’s start from the youngest one in our list.
Colton’s story is impressing.
A young guy who was only 20 years old and who was working at the local gas station joined Wealthy Affiliate.
The rest is history.
He worked very hard on his online business in the beginning and he achieved +$10,000/month income approximately in one year.
He became famous in Wealthy Affiliate with his success post: My First $10,000 Month! There he showed the proof and gave tips how anyone can achieve the same results.
It’s always motivating to learn from people who have achieved such a success and find out how they did it.
One interesting thing is that Colton’s best month so far was November 2015 when he earned $5,941.82 in one month, but then already in the next month, he hit $10k goal.
First, his monthly income steadily raised but then it jumped over $4k in one month. The same kind of thing happened to the next guy, Dom Wells.
Before: Colton was a student and working in a gas station.
After: Made $10,000/month online and lived a comfortable life. Not a bad income for a 20-year-old student.
Dom Wells registered to Wealthy Affiliate without any prior knowledge of internet marketing (just like most of the members in the beginning).
Well, he learned quickly and his income increased steadily. After three years he was already earning $10,000/month.
Now that post is almost one-year-old, and I have been following Dom’s actions after that. Guess what? Now he is earning +$20,000/month. We can call this success!
He is now managing several websites and has hired some employees to scale his success. Think how much his life changed after finding Wealthy Affiliate.
Before: No prior experience of internet marketing. Joins Wealthy Affiliate and starts learning.
After: Managing a team and earning +$20,000/month.
Update in 2017: Now Dom is running an online business of 100 employees. He just made +$100,000 in a single month. See his income proof and read more in his latest blog post here.
Update in 2018: Nowadays Dom Wells is running a business that makes +$1,000,000/year and it's rapidly growing. Not bad for an Englishman who started as a complete newbie just a few years ago, huh?
Now Dom is sharing his tips on how he achieved it. Read 5 tips on how Dom went from 0 to making +$1,000,000/year online.
Nathaniell was the guy who introduced me to Wealthy Affiliate. He has helped me a lot by answering my questions on how to build a successful online business.
He tells the reason why he started internet marketing in his Wealthy Affiliate profile:
The idea is very reasonable. With only $1,000/month you can live very well in China and if you are earning $2,000/month online, you can even have some luxuries in your life. Imagine what you could do with $5,000/month in China!
Now six years has passed after Nathaniell’s registration to WA. Read his recent “6 Year Anniversary in Wealthy Affiliate!” -post where he mentions some of his achievement thanks to his online business.
Another recent blog post can also be interesting for you: 1 Post $300 Per Month. We can quickly calculate that he is making quite a good hourly salary with that post!
Alex Sol joined Wealthy Affiliate already in 2007, and he hasn’t had a single regret after joining.
Thanks to his online earnings he has traveled to 20 different countries and had his +$10,000/month incomes.
In this 8 Years With Wealthy Affiliate -post, he explains two major parts of the online success and shows his accomplishments.
You may also find his another article interesting: $1,400 commission on 1 WA sale. At least it motivated me a lot.
Would it be awesome to make $1,400 with only one sale without even having own products?
Steve started by blogging and afterward turned his hobby to a $10,000/month money making machine.
In May 2016 he turned 30 and is now traveling all around the world with his wife. He has also taught his wife to create an online business so they can do it together.
He likes exploring new places, and his online income makes it possible to move anywhere he wants in this planet. The only thing he needs is the Wifi.
But I think that he doesn’t even need that all the time because his income is mostly passive so it keeps on flowing even though when he is sleeping and disconnected to the Internet.
After reading his blogs, I have noticed that he loves what he is doing so he doesn’t want to stop building his online businesses.
Isn’t it cool that when doing online business you can choose your passion and do what you love?
I believe that after these five examples everyone can see that it is really possible to make big money online.
At this point, the famous motivational speaker Les Brown would say to you, “Do you think it would be easy??? No. It won’t be easy. But it will be worth it!”
Working for your online business for some time to make full-time passive income is worth it. It’s a great option for a typical 9-5 job.
I have also quit my 9-5 job already a good while ago because I make way more money online than in my old job in Austria.
And as you probably know, salaries in the Western European countries like Austria or Finland (my home country) are not so bad. Still, it's possible to make much more money online.
Like you saw, most of these guys didn’t have any former experience of internet marketing before.
They just joined Wealthy Affiliate, went through the training, put the knowledge into action and started getting results.
I didn't have either when I started out. I didn't know single person who makes money online. The only person I "knew" was Nathaniell because I landed on his website. But I didn't know him personally. I am glad that I took the step back in 2015 to start making money online.
If you want to get the same results like me and these 5 guys, I recommend you to follow the same steps. Start learning in Wealthy Affiliate and start earning $$$$$.
"If you do what other successful people do, you will eventually get the same results that they do." -Tony Robbins
Some people have thought, “Well, they started an online business in 2007, 2010 and 2014. It’s already late for me because it’s already 2018. It couldn’t further from the truth.
Read Nathaniell’s recent post Have You Missed The Boat On Affiliate Marketing? There he explains 4 reasons why today is easier to make money online with affiliate marketing than ever before.
I hope you liked the post. Feel free to share it on social media with your friends if they would like to make money online as well..

I can't wait to help you to make money online!
Wealthy Affiliate is an online business platform that provides you the training, tools, community and literally everything you need in order to build and run a successful online business.
There are already more than 1,3 million members in the WA community but I noticed that still thousands of people have been asking on Google and Quora questions like, “Is Wealthy Affiliate Worth It? Is Wealthy Affiliate worth the price? Did you have any success with Wealthy Affiliate?”
I decided to ask 17 Wealthy Affiliate members to share their thoughts and experiences of that platform and making money online in general. Some of them were complete beginners in the online business world when they started on WA while some of them already had years of experience.
The underlining fact is that Wealthy Affiliate helped all of them to make more money online.
I am sure you will find this article extremely helpful and valuable. The old wisdom says, “If you do what other successful people do, you will eventually get the same results that they do.” In the other words, if you listen to the advice that the people below are about to say, you will also learn to make more money online.
I created a YouTube video where I summarize answers, key points of the interviews and show how the Wealthy Affiliate training and community works. I am sure that you find it helpful and valuable.
1.Why And When did you join Wealthy Affiliate?
2.Did you have any former experience of making money online?
3.Why do you like Wealthy Affiliate?
4.Who would especially benefit from Wealthy Affiliate? / Who do you recommend WA?
5.What are the 3 short tips that you would give to a beginner who wants to make money online?
Are you ready to see what they answered? Let’s go!
We’ll start with Nathaniell who was the person that invited me to Wealthy Affiliate in 2015 on his website. His help and support have been immensely important for me during my online business journey.
1) I joined WA in 2010 because I was looking for ways to make money while traveling in Asia. My job paid in Chinese money, but it was hard to go anywhere outside of China and have a great vacation. The exchanges rates are not very good!
What started as just a way to make US dollars in China to fund fun activities, ended up being a full-time venture!
2) Nope! I had no idea how to build a website or how to make money. I lived outside the US for 10 years, so I didn’t even have a smartphone or Facebook account before I moved back to the US in 2012.
3) There are a lot of reasons to like WA. I think the main ones are
1) It’s a community where people can help each other and get advice from full-time marketers and
2) It simplifies the online marketing process from complicated schemes to “game” Google into writing a content-focused blog on a specific topic that helps people.
In other words, they teach the concept of creating a long-term online business that helps people. It’s like picking stocks.
You can buy a penny stock now and hope to jump out before it bombs, or you can pick a solid company that will beat out the market over the next decade.
4) Newbies who are sick of being jerked around from product to product will benefit from Wealthy Affiliate.
If you don’t have a business plan in mind and want to learn how to make money from a website without having to watch your back every five minutes for the next thing to buy from a guru sending you an email, then Wealthy Affiliate is an awesome place to learn affiliate marketing.
My 3 Tips for Beginners:
1. If you create low-quality content now, you will regret it later. I have spent many hours and dollars trying to edit old content I am embarrassed that I published to my site!
2. You can’t be perfect. This contradicts Tip #1, but it still relevant! Better to publish something “less than perfect” than to publish nothing at all. You can always go back and edit or improve later.
3. Get into the mindset of helping people. You might think you can pull a “fast one” and make some quick sales by writing some overhyped content, but most people are savvy to that type of marketing. Long-term, helpful, honest content wins out.
Once you have traffic flowing in, you can tweak your sales copy or calls to action to increase conversions to but start out you need to have your visitors in mind!
1 – June 2015 I joined Wealthy Affiliate to learn about Affiliate Marketing to earn more revenue online.
2 – I’ve been earning an income online since 2007
3 – I love Wealthy Affiliate because of the Wonderful Community of Friends who are Caring, Knowledgeable and Sharing. I also love WA because of the Amazing support team including Carson, Kyle, Jay and also SiteSupport.
4 – I always recommend WA to my Friends and Family who are would like to become Business Owners to increase their visibility online with Affiliate marketing while learning about SEO, Keywords, Content Creation and Marketing.
3 short tips for beginners:
#1 – Join WA with a person who you trust and can learn from.
#2 – Place more emphasis on your business than on your extracurricular activities ie… TV watching, partying, game playing. Treat your online business like a business by putting in the work and staying focused!
#3 – Never stop learning, be like a sponge. The internet is full of information – Make sure that what you learn is current, true and applicable to where you want to go. Always know where you want to go so that you can work towards getting there.
(1) I joined WA in July 2015. I was looking for a way to earn money from home while raising my children. Back then, I was still working full time, but have a pretty tight schedule (not too suitable for a mom with small children).
(2) I did try writing for Squidoo (it’s an online platform whereby you can build your website for free and inserting affiliate links in the articles, the revenue is shared between Squidoo and the author. I didn’t earn much though, maybe just $20 per month at most).
(3) I like Wealthy Affiliate because it provides a complete step by step guide for a beginner, it has a community for asking questions, the Site Comment to really help to keep the website alive at the beginning, also the Keyword Tool. Oh, I also love the weekly webinar by Jay.
(4) I guess everyone who is trying to make income online will benefit from Wealthy Affiliate, especially newbies. WA certification provides you with basic yet very important steps you need to do in building and growing your website.
(5) 3 Tips for Beginners:
1. I joined June 2007. I was doing marketing on my own for years before this. But I felt like I didn’t really understand what I needed to do. Then I rank into Travis who created Bum Marketing.
He recommended Wealthy Affiliate. Initially, I was very skeptical because of the name. But because the recommendation came from someone I trusted, I decided to give it a shot. I haven’t left since.
2. Yes, I was successfully making money doing things like surveys, PTC, reading emails. However, the income was limited because it was based on my own activities.
However once I realized these programs had referral programs, I started to focus on referring people to these sites because I made more money and it became passive. So that was my introduction to affiliate marketing.
3. I love Wealthy Affiliate because it’s a one-stop shop for all types of internet marketing training and tools. I also love the fact that it’s a supportive community that encourages its users. The heart of Wealthy Affiliate are the members and owners.
4. I think Wealthy Affiliate is perfect for anyone looking to make money online. But the ideal person is willing to learn, put in hard work and has the patience to make this work for them. If you have an employee or get rich quick mentality then you won’t really like Wealthy Affiliate.
a. Invest in yourself. One of my biggest regrets was not to invest in my own education via buying courses or eBooks from people that were successful in what I wanted to master. It costs me thousands of dollars in income I would have earned sooner if I wasn’t being cheap or trying to do everything for free.
b. Be patient. People assume that the internet means little work and instant success. It’s not. You need to have a lot of delayed gratification to succeed in this business. A lot of the work you initially put in won’t bear fruit until months later. But people give up before seeing that. You have to push forward even if you don’t see the initial results. It will come if you’re following the training.
c. Fail forward. Too many people are afraid to fail or make mistakes. But that’s part of the process. Most of the successful people you know have failed many times. The difference between them and the rest of the population is that they don’t allow failure to stop them. They use these temporary failures as lessons that help them get closer to their success. You’re going to run into obstacles and challenges. Don’t give up.
1) I joined Wealthy Affiliate in 2015 about a month after I first started looking for a way to make money online. The reason I decided to join was because it took a realistic approach to things and wasn’t telling me that I would make a ton of money with little to no work.
I had come close to being scammed and wasted a lot of time prior to this and Wealthy Affiliate just seemed honest.
The reason I was looking for work online was mostly because I wanted the geographical freedom to pick up and move wherever I might want or need to.
2) I started with no experience in this realm. I messed around with paid surveys, PTC sites, and a few other things but had no experience with affiliate marketing or anything that WA taught.
3) I like WA because of the honesty and the community most of all. The training and the tools are great, don’t get me wrong, but I feel that the honest approach that WA takes along with the lively community really separate it from other similar platforms.
4) I mostly recommend WA to people who are looking to supplement their income, bring in a part-time income, or potentially go full-time. However, I don’t recommend it to those that are in need of an income immediately. It’s a slow process and takes time to get things moving.
And of course, I recommend this to those that like to blog or write articles since this accounts for the majority of the job.
5) A: Pick a niche that is, at the very least, interesting to you. I know this doesn’t sound like much of a tip but I learned the hard way early on. You will get burnt out if you are writing about things you don’t really care for.
B: Don’t waste time making your website perfect. In the early stages, I always see so many people trying to make their website look perfect. This is often a waste of time and will not help with conversions. I always tell people to keep it as simple as possible when starting.
C: Write quality content and lots of it. Its all about content. I get 100% of my website traffic from content ranked in the search engines.
Pump out the good content and keep doing this. Follow the curriculum. There is no secret to this the problem is that most people write 5 or 6 posts and don’t see any money coming in so they give up.
1- I joined Wealthy Affiliate on the 24th October of 2016, I was looking for a way to make money online, I desperately need to make some extra cash to pay off my university and rent fees.
2- When I joined WA I was a complete newbie, I had no idea how money could be made online, I knew people do make money online and I knew it was something possible but I had no clue how and where to get started.
3- I like Wealthy Affiliate because of their amazing well laid out training, they have videos, tutorials, articles, live webinars, all laid out for you in a step by step.
On top of that, they have an amazing community and support team that will support you and help you whenever you get stuck in the training.
4- Everyone will benefit from Wealthy Affiliate but I think newbies are the ones that will benefit the most.
Because WA is especially suitable for newbies, people like me who joined WA without any experience. I highly recommend WA for newbies.
5- When I joined Wealthy Affiliate I was hoping to make thousands of dollars in my first or second month.
But that was an unrealistic income wish. I’m not saying it’s not possible to make thousands of dollars online but it takes lots of time and hard work to reach that amazing goal.
The most important 3 tips that I learned that I want to share with newbies hoping to make money online are:
1) Work Hard and be Consistent
If you want to make money you will need to put in a lot of consistent focused hard work That’s the key to success, WA is a legitimate training, I mean it’s not a click a button scheme.
2) Set a realistic income goal
Before you aim for the thousands of dollars, aim for your first dollar, then your first $50, then your first $100.
That’s how it works.
Your online business results will grow really slowly, you need to be patient. There will come days when you will want to quit when you will get frustrated.
You will need to overcome those, thatìs the patience test, a fundamental step to overcome if you want to succeed.
3) Help people and the money will come
When you start building your business, your goal should be to help people fix their problems. You need to write content that solves people’s problems.
Then give them a paid solution ( send them to your affiliate links).
If you don’t help people, they won’t click your affiliate links and won’t buy from you.
1) I joined Wealth Affiliate after doing some research on making money online and luckily it was the first place I joined. I had a few jobs before that and just wasn’t happy with them. I didn’t like the structure and rigidity of working for someone else.
2) I didn’t have any experience before this but it took me a little over a year to really figure things out.
3) I would say someone that’s willing to put in the work and able to discipline themselves. It takes daily effort to make this work and a lot of experimenting. If you’re expecting to work for a month and be set for life then this isn’t for you.
3 Short Tips for Beginners:
Number one: Be willing to make changes if you’re not getting results.
Number two: Research successful websites in your niche. See how long their content is and which keywords they have.
Number three: Always plan ahead. Don’t just wing it day in and day out. Figure out the next 10 keywords you’re going to write and then write them. Track your results and make the changes necessary to become successful.
1.I think its August 2015. Since I have read rich dad poor dad, I always wanted to have a passive source of income. I tried MLM business but it didn’t work. That is when I discovered online marketing. I tried one online program but it is too expensive. That is when I discovered about wealthy affiliate.
2.No, actually, I don’t have prior experience in earning online.
3.The support in WA is awesome. Whenever I am lost or I have a question, I immediately get answers.
4.I recommend WA to everyone. No matter your age is, it is not too late to start.
3 Short Tips for Beginners:
-Don’t be too hard on yourself
– Be consistent
1) I joined Wealthy Affiliate in May 2016. That’s when I was 18 years old. I joined WA because I knew I’m not going to become an employee and work for other people. So that’s why I started looking for opportunities online.
2) Before I came across WA, I joined another company trying to make money online. However, it turned out to be a scam. Fortunately, it didn’t take long before I found WA. Having the experienced of being scammed, this makes even more definite that WA is a truly amazing place.
3) Simply put, WA is the best place for anyone to build an online business at a very affordable and reasonable price.
The value it offers way exceeds the price it charges you. But I need to mention that their truly ‘pay-it-forward’ community is something that I love the most. It’s hard to find any other platform with such an amazing community!
4) Let me put it this way. WA is NOT for you if you’re looking for some get rich quick schemes and you’re not willing to put in your time and effort in building your own business. Other than that, WA is for everyone who has the will to succeed online.
5) My 3 tips can be summarized in 3 words: COMMITMENT, CONSISTENCY, and PATIENCE.
Make money online is a serious business. One common mistake many people make is dabbling around. Wealthy Affiliate is a legitimate place to make money online. So you need to COMMIT your time, effort and most importantly yourself.
Next, consistency is key to all success. You’re not going to lose 20kg by just going to gym for one week, are you? That’s not possible. This is the same for your online business as well.
Lastly, building an online business is not like working for a paycheck. You won’t be seeing any results in the beginning but you need to be patient. Trust the system and put in consistent work. Very soon, you’ll be grateful that you didn’t give up half way!
1.I joined it in 2007 and it was a “last resort” after having VERY bad experiences with other make money type programs. I said to myself this is the last one I’ll try and if it fails, I’m done. Luckily that last shot turned out to be the best shot 🙂
2.I had a little bit of it, 2 years before WA, but nothing major happened.
3.They are real, they (WA) give you the fishing rod but you have to do the fishing so to say. And the community help is a big bonus. Finally, the tools they set up, make it the best place to get everything you need.
4.Hobbyists, anyone seeking to try a different way of making money in life (retirees, travelers, people tired of their jobs, etc…).
3 Short Tips for Beginners
1) Start with WA.
2) Complete their courses.
3) Work passionately at this.
1.I always have a knack for trying new niches so I joined WA because I wanted to learn how to monetize my passion and to see whether or not I can make money from it. When I tried WA, I was so surprised as to how transparent they are with the lessons and reality of Internet Marketing.
I decided to create a blog and until now, it’s still standing firm online, monetizing even when I haven’t worked on it for months. I joined in May 2014 so there are 3 months more to go until I reach my 4th year with WA, yey!
2.Not at all. I worked as a hotelier so the closest thing I know to using the internet was to play World of Warcraft.
3.Well, apart from the amazing evergreen lessons, I would say that I love WA because of the community itself. Everyone is very supportive and they come from various backgrounds.
Unlike MLM where they pressure you day and night to make money so that they can earn a commission off your downline, WA’s community is a lot different. Everyone is a business owner and we work very hard daily to create new content for our business so you will never see anyone pressuring you to work because we don’t get anything from you.
We help because we want to give back to the community and for me, even though I’ve finished the lessons in WA, I still maintain my membership to help out from time to time as for how Kyle and Carson guided me when I first started.
4.I recommend WA to everyone. Whatever your dreams and ambitions are, you can learn how to monetize that and make a living doing what you love.
For me, I love writing content and I love organizing events so I decided to create a website called kamiraevents.com sharing random tips from my experiences. After a while, I was confident enough to start promoting my services to organize huge events on my own such as doing Gala Dinners and Event Decorations. Today, I have my own shop with a team of 10 people with me.
I also have a blog sharing tips on SEO and Content Marketing at MyInternetQuest.com. It doesn’t stop there, I also opened started blogging about games and ended up opening a physical store in Shah Alam, Malaysia where I come from. Whatever your dreams are, WA will show you the way on how to reach there,
3 short tips for beginners:
1. I joined WA in 2013 because I wanted to learn how to make money online and WA looked very trustworthy.
2. Yes, I made some money online back in 2001
3. I like WA because their approach is very realistic and honest. They don’t promise overnight wealth. And support is fantastic.
4. I recommend WA to both beginners and advanced. Advanced may not benefit from the basic training but they can benefit from weekly live training and other WA old members. It’s a great value!
5. Treat your business seriously and you will get results. By this I mean:
1. I joined Wealthy Affiliate back in April of 2015. I’d spent a year thinking about doing affiliate marketing and doing loads of research, but yet I still didn’t know where to really start.
It was only when I joined Wealthy Affiliate that I had a clear direction and the process really started to make sense. I was searching for more ways to make money online and affiliate marketing seemed like a good fit.
2. Prior to affiliate marketing, I’d made some part-time money selling items on eBay. I also used to write, publish and sell a lot of eBooks. This did well for a few years, then competition became really fierce and sales really dried up. That’s when I went in search of something else to do online as well.
3. I could write a lot about this, but I’ll sum things up with 2 simple reasons.
Firstly, the training is easy. Anyone can do this if they follow the lessons.
Secondly, and most importantly, I get to interact with a community that desires to see everyone else succeed in this business, and that’s rare. I’ve learnt so much from other members. It really is an unbelievable community.
4. Anyone could really stand to benefit from being a member of WA. If you want to make extra money from the comfort of home, or even establish a fulltime business, then WA is for you. It’s not all about affiliate marketing either. What’s taught at Wealthy Affiliate is relevant to all sorts of ways to make money online.
5. Avoid wasting time and money on obvious scams that promise you riches without telling you how. If it sounds unbelievable, then it probably is.
Be prepared to put time and effort into something and don’t expect to be making money instantly, or even within the first few months. Give it time as it’ll be well worth it.
Make a list of all the positive reasons you want to make money online and keep it somewhere visible. It’ll help you stay motivated and to persevere through any tough times.
1.I joined in August of 2013. I was looking for a way to create my own ecommerce website so I didn’t have to continue selling through eBay and paying their annoying fees.
2.Yes, as an eBay Power Seller.
3.Why do you like Wealthy Affiliate? = It is an all-inclusive, easy to understand, low cost training and business building platform.
4. Anyone who wants to earn residual and passive income from the comfort of their home, as long as they realize that this is not a get rich quick scheme.
3 short tips for a beginner who wants to make money online
A – Take the Online Entrepreneur Certification Course first before doing the Affiliate Bootcamp because it will help you greatly to understand Affiliate Marketing more than Bootcamp will.
B – Do not rush through the training. Just like the story of the tortoise and the hare, slow and steady will win the race. If you need to go back and take the lesson again, then just do it.
C – Be patient and do not quit, because depending on how many hours you put in every day, which should be no less than 3, it can be close to a year before you see any kind of steady results.
1) I joined Wealthy Affiliate in July 2015 while I was looking for an Online survey review. That was when I discovered affiliate marketing the power of passive income. At that point, I knew that could change my life in a way that I never imagined.
2) Apart from making money with online surveys, I had never made a dime online. I had zero experience.
3) The community aspect of Wealthy Affiliate, and to know I can always get support and motivation whenever I need.
It’s a lonely job, so being part of a community of people who are in the same boat, and being able to share successes and failures is awesome.
4) Anyone can benefit from WA. However, some people are not motivated enough to put in the work. So, for those who are prepared to grind and reach their goals, WA is an incredible investment.
3 Tip for Beginners:
1) I joined Wealthy Affiliate in 2015 and the main reason behind it was that I wanted to be flexible with time and location (so that I could travel more).
Initially, I started my online journey as a freelancer but I soon realized that even though I was working online, I wanted to have more freedom and answer for myself only.
Being a blogger/affiliate marketer definitely sounded more like something I’d want to do. And I decided to go for it (with Wealthy Affiliate).
2) As I mentioned in #1, I had experience in making money online as a freelancer. And while it was a great experience, running after someone to give me a job wasn’t something I wanted to do.
3) There are too many reasons why I like this Wealthy Affiliate community.
First of all, it’s because it really is a community of like-minded, helpful individuals. I think I would probably have quit if it wasn’t for the support I received throughout the years. See, when you are building a business online, it can get lonely. But when you communicate with fellow WA members and see their progress and success stories, it cheers you up and confirms that nothing is impossible.
Second thing is the step-by-step training that is very newbie-friendly. When you just start out you barely understand how this money making business works but WA helps you figure it out, inspire you and get you to work.
There are a lot of things I could say about Wealthy Affiliate but I believe these 2 points are crucial – proper guidance and endless support – if you want to succeed online.
4) Frankly, anyone of any profession would benefit from WA. Anyone who wants to make a side cash or build a full-time business online. Anyone who has a passion and is willing to put in work. It’s easier to say who is it NOT for: Wealthy Affiliate is not for those who are looking for easy money (ways to get rich quick).
You WILL have to treat your website as a business from the beginning and put time and efforts into it. It can get challenging and that’s when the community/support aspect of Wealthy Affiliate will come in handy.
3 Short Tips for Beginners Who Want to Make Money Online
The best advice I can give you is, be patient. Please, be patient. Building an online business takes time and it potentially may take some time before you will see your first commissions. I made my first $50 commissions after 5 months of entering the online business world. Now I can make these fifty bucks in 1 day.
Second tip – if you decided to join the WA, follow the training. While creativity is appreciated, if you are a total newbie, just follow the training.
And finally, treat your website as a business. You don’t have to write articles like a lunatic but do pay attention to it on a daily basis – think of different ways to improve your business. Do keyword research. Connect with fellow bloggers in your niche. Write at least 300 words for your new article. Do something to improve.
1: I joined WA in 2013 because I wanted more than a JOB, I wanted to earn an income that would set me free in life.
2: I started online marketing in 1999, bouncing from one online money making opportunity to another.
But I did learn about the concept of affiliate marketing, pick up a few marketing skills, and make some part-time commissions prior to joining WA.
3: The reason why I love WA so much is for the fact that it provides everything I need to run a successful business, it’s got a fantastic community to fall back on for support, and the training from Kyle is evergreen.
4: Absolutely anyone can join WA, even a novice with zero knowledge on internet marketing because the training is so easy to follow.
If you have a hobby or passion, you can build a profitable business with WA.
My 3 tips for beginners wanting to make money:
Thank you very much for all the answers. I appreciate them all.
Now I would like to answer a few frequently asked questions on WA that beginners are usually thinking.
Wealthy Affiliate teaches you to build a successful online business which means that even the sky isn’t a limit with your earnings. That being said, you shouldn’t wait for millions right away.
Building a successful business takes time and effort. You can make much more money that with a regular 9-5 job but you need to be patient and consistent. With a 9-5 job or with freelancing you make money right away when the task is accomplished. With a business, you first make a work and afterward you reap the rewards.
Sometimes I earn money from the work that I did 1,5 years ago. That’s also the beauty of having an online business. You can make money while you are sleeping, traveling, laying on the beach, chatting with your friends, etc. In addition, you can decide when you work and where you work. I have traveled to 5 different countries during the past 2 months because having an online business allows me to do that.
Some time ago I created a post of 5 WA members who were making +$10,000/month (and some of them much more). I know a guy who started on Wealthy Affiliate some years ago without any experience and nowadays he’s running a +$1 Million/year online business. The key is just to get started, keep on learning and doing.
In my comprehensive Wealthy Affiliate review, I have explained the pricing on WA. You can get started for completely free and have an access to all premium features for 7 days. You still remain a free membership for a lifetime unless you want to upgrade to premium.
The price of a premium membership is $19 for the first month and $49/month or $359/year afterward. I certainly recommend going for a yearly plan because you save $229 immediately with it. In addition, it will pay itself back many times over the time course.
Let’s say, for example, that Wealthy Affiliate helps you to make $10,000/year more money online, $359 investment to their training costs nothing.
With the Wealthy Affiliate premium membership you will get an access to:
Yes, Wealthy Affiliate is certainly worth it. Everybody who follows the training and applies the knowledge will earn money and get good results.
I have seen it so many times on my own and also in other people’s lives. My 2 most important tips for you are:
In my experience, many times making big money online mostly depends on the willingness to do the things. On Wealthy Affiliate, you have everything you need to succeed. Your task is just to apply the knowledge into practice.
If you haven’t yet started the training on Wealthy Affiliate, I highly recommend that you get started today. I will send you a personal message inside the community right after you have joined and I’ll help you hand in hand to get started well.

Today I am going to tell you “What is the Fastest Way to Make Money Online for Free?” I have made thousands of euros online for free in a little period of time so I know something about this subject.
If you want to make money online very quickly, then you can fill out a few surveys and complete other mini tasks. There are hundreds of that kind of sites online where they pay you for completing little tasks like:
We have reviewed tens of that kind of sites here in YourOnlineRevenue.com so we really know which one is the best and which ones are scams. I will give you two best options that you choose.
In my opinion, PrizeRebel is the best “Get-Paid-To” -site that exists. They have already paid more than $10 million in cash and rewards for their members since 2007. They have also a nice, user-friendly platform and there many ways how you can quickly earn some dollars.
Probably the world’s biggest and most famous “Get-Paid-To” -site is Clixsense. They have paid more than $23,600,000 for their members in total since February 2007. They have also a variety of ways to make money online quickly.
As I said, you can earn money fast with these sites but surprisingly I don’t really recommend using too much of your time for that. The reason is that even though you can earn money very fast, your earning potential is ULTIMATELY LOW. It means that you will not earn a sufficient income with this kind of sites.
Think about PrizeRebel, for example. They have paid more than $10 million in cash and rewards for their members which sound pretty impressive. But let’s take a closer look. They have 6,519,055 community members today in 22.1.2017. If we divide $10 million by a number of members, we can find out how much approximately each member has earned using their service.
$10M / 6,519M members => $1.53 per each member! That’s so little amount of money. I really don’t want to know how much money all members have used in total to this service because their earning rate would probably be something like $1/hour on average. Or even less.
So, I don’t recommend “Get-Paid-To” -sites because they don’t have a good earning potential. I know that I could myself earn quite good money by recommending them. Because those sites also pay for each referral that I got to their sites. I know a guy who earns each month hundreds of dollars through ClixSense because he has referred it to so many people.
But I don’t recommend ClixSense to you or to anybody else because, in my opinion, your time is much more valuable than clicking ads and answering surveys. I will explain you a better way to make money online.
Making money online is not complicated. I don’t say it would be easy but at least it’s not complicated but simple. Let me give you a clear formula how you can make a living online. (By the way, this is proven formula that really works. Try yourself!)
Step 1 – Choose Your Passion
What is your passion? What are you interested in? What would you like to do day in and day out with excitement?
I can’t decide it for you because you need to know it yourself. But let’s say that you like hiking. Now you have decided that and we can move to the step 2.
Step 2 – Create a Website
If you have never created a website before, don’t worry. I have very simple step-by-step instructions how you can create a simple but high-quality website in 30 seconds. You don’t need any programming or other special skills. Just follow easy instructions and it’s done.
In our example, you create a website which is focused on hiking.
Step 3 – Attract Visitors
When you have a website, you need to put there some content. Write some texts and add pictures. Don’t worry if you don’t know how to do it yet, here is a step-by-step training how to produce user-friendly text and how to get free images online.
In our example, you would be writing texts related to hiking. The idea is that you 1.” You write a text 2.It gets ranked on Google 3.A visitor comes from Google 4.It buys a product that you are recommending 5.You earn a commission.
Your articles could be, for example
I am not an expert of hiking but I still could make a successful online business around hiking because I know the skills on how to get ranked on Google and make money online. I know a normal guy who made a successful website about women kettlebell training. He didn’t know very much about the subject but he read on the Internet, made his “research” and promoted some kettlebell products.
Step 4 – Earn Money with Commissions
Let’s say that you have written an article, “What are the best waterproof hiking shoes for men”. Then you recommend, some hiking shoes on your site and put links to Amazon, for example. When somebody goes to Amazon and buys any product, you earn a commission.
One very good thing is that even though your visitor would buy something else on Amazon during 24 hours, you will earn a commission. Let’s say that he clicks your link of a hiking shoe but decides to buy a hiking backpack and a TV. You earn commission for both of those products.
This is called affiliate marketing. You are promoting other people’s products and earning commissions. You don’t need to have any own products. You don’t need to care about shipping, dealing with challenging customers or anything like that. And the best thing is that you can make money even when you are sleeping. You can earn money even 3 years after writing an article.
Let’s say that you write an article to your hiking website in 2017 and somebody goes to that site in 2020. He reads an article and goes to buy a product on Amazon, you still earn the commission. You can, of course, promote products from any other website than Amazon but it is just an easy example. You can quickly find 331,073 results under “hiking” -subject so there are tons of different products that you can promote.
Today I can offer you 10 interactive video lessons and 2 websites for FREE in Wealthy Affiliate. You will also get a keyword tool which helps you to find words that will get you ranked on Google. If you are not using good keywords, your chances to getting ranked are quite small. But if you are using targeted keywords, you can get lots of free traffic and visitors who are very interested in your products.
With a world-class training in Wealthy Affiliate, you will learn how to earn money with affiliate marketing. The best thing there is that the earning potential is literally unlimited. There are people who make millions of euros every year with affiliate marketing. Don’t get me wrong. It’s not a “get-rich-quick” -scheme but it’s a way how to make a living.
I recommend treating affiliate marketing as creating an online business. You need to work in order to make a living online but it’s definitely possible for you to make $10,000/month. Here are 5 real-life examples from Wealthy Affiliate.
If you have any questions about the process of making money online, don’t hesitate to leave them below. I will be more than happy to help you out!

According to Wikipedia passive income is an income received on a regular basis, with little effort required to maintain it. In other words, you are getting passive income. You don’t need to work almost at all to get money. In this post, we are going to have a look at 5 benefits of passive income. I will also reveal to you how I earn money online on “autopilot”.
Before we dive into the article I want to give you an opportunity to take a look at my video where I explain the benefits of passive income and how you can earn it as well. I believe you will find this helpful and valuable. Enjoy!
Why is passive income important? Here are the 5 reasons.
1.You can provide value for more people
2.It forces you to learn
3.You have more time available for other things
4.Live anywhere you want
5.No income limits
Would you like to learn to earn passive income online? I earn money while I sleep, go for a walk, chat with my friends or lay on the beach.
Numerous people who have gone through that training are nowadays earning a full-time income online and having a freedom to live wherever they want and work whenever they want. Some people went even from $0 to $10,000/month without prior knowledge. NOTE: Of course it required work and persistence but over the time course it pays off.
Anyway, let’s discuss now more in detail about the benefits of passive income
If you want to earn money you need to offer value for someone. If you are an employee you are providing value for your boss and his customers. Then the customers pay your boss and the boss pays you and takes a little for himself.
Usually, if you want to earn the passive income you need to sell something. Rent a property, sell books, sell movies, sell music, sell other products or services which don’t require your own time anymore or sell investments when the value has gone up.
We all have 24 hours/day. If you want to counsel 100 different clients every day it’s almost impossible. But if you write a book or create a website you can counsel 100 000 people every day if they read your book or visit your website.
Or you can make a great song that serves 1 000 000 persons all around the world. Once you have made the album people can buy it and you get passive income.
Let’s face the fact: earning active income, in general, is dead easy. You send a job application, go to a job interview and get applied. Then you start doing what your boss tells you to do and he pays you. You are just required to do what your boss says but nothing more. (Okay this is a bit simplified but you understand the point.)
But if you want to earn a passive income you usually have to learn some skill before you can earn it. There are many different ways to earn passive income but probably one of the most common ways is to have your own business.
When you have your own business you need to be interested in your own subject and provide value for other people. Then you need to learn marketing and selling. Of course, you can outsource many things but most of the time having business forces you to face and learn many things that you haven’t ever faced before.
Let’s say that you are working 40 hours a week and sleep 8 hours a day which makes 56 hours a day. There are 168 hours in the week so you are awake 112 hours a week. That means that you are working over 35% of the time you are awake.
If the travel to your work takes 30 minutes back and forth, then your work requires over 40% of your time. THINK HOW MUCH THAT IS! Add the time you think and talk about your work with your friends. It means that work takes the half of your whole time (and life).
Do you want to learn new skills that you are not practicing at your workplace? Do you want to study some interesting subjects but you don’t have time because of your work? Or are you bored with your actual work? If you answered yes, then passive income could be a good choice for you.
Do you want to travel, dive into new cultures and live anywhere you want? When the income you made doesn’t require your presence you can choose where on this planet you want to spend your time.
Online businesses are a great example. When you have a laptop and internet connection you can connect if it’s required.
I just want to mention that there is no 100% passive income. If you buy and hold stocks then it’s probably 99,5% passive income. and if you are renting houses you still need to find a tenant and see that he has paid the rent.
But compare for example if you are driving taxi and earning commission of your shifts then it’s 0% passive income.
There are 24 hours a day. If you earn $50/hour (which is a lot over average) that makes $400 in 8 hours. If you work 14 hours that makes 700$. But there’s actually a limit. Your income limit is $700/day (given that you can work 14 hours a day).
But when you are earning a passive income you can earn $10 000/day because work doesn’t require your presence. Warren Buffett earned $37 million per day! in 2013. Let’s compare $700 and 37 000 000$. Is there a little difference? Which one would you prefer?
If you are working only for active income there always will be some limits. If you earn $20/hour the limit is 280$/day.
Instead of going to study 5 years university degree (and get a student loan) could one possibly be to build a business and start earning passive income?
Earning passive income is highly beneficial and recommendable. By earning the passive income you can provide value for millions, learn a lot of new things, have more time do the things you want and live anywhere you want.
Remember that earning passive income doesn’t mean getting rich overnight. It usually requires a lot of hard work and studying before you start earning it.
If you are interested in earning passive income through online business I recommend to start in Wealthy Affiliate
What do you think about passive income? What are the greatest benefits in your opinion?
I would love to hear from you in the comments below.
You may have earned some dollars from online surveys but at the same, they are spending your valuable time. You may be asking “Are Online Surveys Worth It?”
In YourOnlineRevenue.com we have reviewed several survey sites: Clixsense, Cashcrate, Toluna, Opinion World and so on. We know that people are making money from them but still, we are not recommending any of them. If I would recommend survey sites, I would probably earn good amount of money when people would join through my links and I would earn commission from referrals.
So why am I throwing money away by saying that online surveys are not worth it?
Because I want to provide the best information and value for my readers. I don’t want to recommend something that I wouldn’t be ready to use myself.
You may have seen pictures from successful Internet marketers of their survey site earnings. Below they have written, “Easy $50 every month.” That’s their way to motivate new people to join through their links and they will earn commissions for referrals. That $50 may be easy if they earned it only by answering surveys but it doesn’t mean that it would be worth it.
If you have spent 20 hours to earn $50 from surveys, I wouldn’t say it’s worth it. You may have earned that same $50 in 3-5 hours in your normal job and spent the rest 15-17 hours doing something fun that you like to do instead of answering surveys. Would you prefer sitting 20 hours in front of your computer or 3 hours at work + 17 hours with your family/friends? I would take the latter one.
99,99% of the times you will be making much better income with a normal job compared to answering surveys. If you want some real dollar amount examples, check out my Cashcrate review.
Conclusion 1: Don’t answer surveys for money. They are not worth it. ANY other job makes you earn more. And there are much better online opportunities out there.
Probably you may think that answering surveys or playing little games can be an easy way to make some useful extra dollars. But let’s analyze this subject a bit closer. My claim is that your life should be spent in a more valuable way than answering online surveys and playing little games to earn some pennies.
It may feel like a little time to answer one or two surveys but if you keep on doing that, minutes and hours will add up to a huge time in total. Let’s say that you use 2 hours a week answering surveys. It makes about 9 hours in a month. You may earn probably $20-30 with surveys with that time.
9 hours/month makes 108 hours/year. And imagine if you would spend double that time, it’s already 216 hours a year. In that time you could already learn a language to a decent level. Or you could learn how to play piano/guitar. Or you could earn $3,240 with $15/hour salary. With surveys, you probably would probably make max. $400 in 216 hours. The difference is $2800.
Or you could use that 216 hours with your children, with your loved ones or with someone else that you enjoy spending time with. Why on earth would you like to spend your valuable life in front of your little computer answering those boring surveys or playing those useless games!?!
Have a look at my recent video on Youtube where I explain why online surveys are not worth it. (I made the video after researching more than 100 survey sites.)
If you are answering surveys with an excuse, “I just want to relax a little bit.” I have here 3 alternatives that are far better ways to relax than filling online surveys.
Conclusion 2: Don’t answer surveys for relaxing. There are much better ways to earn money online.
As we concluded before, online surveys are not going to make you good money. But I can honestly tell you that the Internet is full of opportunities to earn money online. And it can be ultimately profitable. See 5 examples of guys who are making +$10,000/month (all of them started without any experience!).
That way is called Affiliate marketing.
In a nutshell affiliate marketing means that there is a company (for example Amazon) and they have products (for example books). Then you leave a link about their product to your website, social media or anywhere else on the Internet. Then somebody clicks your link and buys some product (from Amazon). Then you earn some commission from the company.
In affiliate marketing, you don’t need your own products. It’s good to have your own website where you can leave links and create some content. You can write about anything you want. If you are interested in motorcycling, you can have a website about motorcycling and then link motorcycles, helmets and other equipment. Then you will earn money when people buy products through your links. If you don’t know anything about building websites, don’t worry neither didn’t I or people mentioned before! Nowadays building a website is EASY and you can build your own website in 30 seconds.
If you want to learn to make money through affiliate marketing I recommend you to go to Wealthy Affiliate where you will learn
The best part is that you can get started FOR FREE. Put your credit card away.

Is Residual Revenue Secrets a Scam? In this review, I am going to answer to this and many other questions that you may be thinking regarding this program. I believe that you will enjoy our review. So spend the next 2 minutes with us and let us know what did you like.
Name: Residual Revenue Secrets (RRS)
Founders: Jason McClain
Price: Apprentice $167/month or Insider $477/month
Field: Make Money Online -Programs
Overall Rank: 40 Out of 100 (Check Out My #1 Recommendation, 98 Out of 100)
Like many other make money online training, Residual Revenue Secrets starts by describing how would it feel to have a freedom to do whatever you want with your time. You wouldn’t need to go to a 9-5 job. You could just wake up and walk in the sunrise with your beautiful/handsome spouse and enjoy the life. You could spend the whole day with your kids or go for a biking trip if you feel like it.
Jason promises to teach how you can have your own online business that allows you to do all that I described above. Well, that’s what one million other programs promise as well. However, I think that Jason McClain’s Residual Revenue Secrets much better than most other systems.
Jason has been an entrepreneur for more than 30 years and an online entrepreneur for around 20 years. That’s a huge time. I bet you don’t know many online entrepreneurs who would have been already 20 years in the Internet business. With a couple of Google searches, I was able to verify that Jason is really a serial entrepreneur and a very successful one.
hat’s a good point to start. We have a teacher who knows his stuff well. But as we know it doesn’t guarantee that the product would be awesome. Many people know how to make big bucks online but their programs are anything but good.
If you have read our 5 tips to avoid scams online, you know that it’s important to investigate the founders. Have they been scamming people or have they provided helpful products also in the past? Of course, a person can totally change but many times a scam artist creates several products to fool people and take their money.
Jason had in the past the common project with Vick Strizheus called Project Breakthrough. It was a sale funnel to another product called High Traffic Academy. For some reason, Vick’s and Jason’s roads separated and nowadays they are running their own products individually (or with another team).
Jason has been involved in many other successful businesses. You can find a list, for example on his LinkedIn page where he lists all those companies. All in all, we can conclude that Jason knows how to make money online and he is eligible to teach you as well.
Jason’s Residual Revenue Secrets has the following sales funnel:
1.He attracts people to his sales page.
2.People get started by free with his 3-day free course.
3.In the free course, he sells his memberships for $167 or $477/month.
Jason, like other successful entrepreneurs, has a gift of inspiring people. In his sales pitch and in a free course he wants to inspire you about the idea of having your own online business which will give lots of freedom.
His 3-day courses Jason teaches these 3 steps:
1.Identify a need
In order sell something and succeed, there has to be a need. You can’t sell dog collars for a person who doesn’t care about dogs at all. But selling dog collars could be a wonderful idea if you can reach dog lovers.
I saw that people were struggling with learning languages. They always complained that they are too old, too young, too lazy, or whatever. I saw that there was a need for teaching how to learn languages easily despite your age so I created LanguagesAreEasy.com
2.Learn how to build a company
Jason teaches that any true online entrepreneur has to have his own products. So, he is not teaching affiliate marketing which means selling other people’s products. I agree with Jason that it’s very good if you want to create your own products and services.
On the other hand, people who don’t have enough experience may struggle if they try to create a product right away. Then a reasonable way to start could be with affiliate marketing.
3.Learn how to market your company
In this part, Jason points out that you need to focus on providing value instead of concentrating solely on making money. Many successful entrepreneurs teach you the same thing. Don’t chase the paper, provide value.
When you give people something that they really need, they are ready to pay for that. Why doctors earn so well? Because people are ready to pay a lot to get healed. That’s just one example but we could make many others. Would you like to leave one idea in the comments?
We have come to the point where the 3-day course is over and now is time to decide if we want to buy a premium membership or not. Let’s have a look at the prices. There are two options: Apprentice $167/month or Insider $477/month. Sounds quite expensive.
If you buy a monthly membership for Insider, it costs almost $6,000. Quite a lot, huh?
Would you be ready to invest $6,000/year for an online course?
I know it’s a lot of money and many people don’t want to invest so much. That’s one reason why I think that Wealthy Affiliate is superior. Their yearly membership costs under $1/per day which mean $359/year or $299/year during their Black Friday campaign.
I didn’t buy Residual Revenue Secrets because I am currently satisfied with the training I got from Wealthy Affiliate. My online income is growing each and every month and actually, my membership is now free because I earn much much more than $359/year with WA-training.
The answer to this question I let you decide yourself. I just say that on Wealthy Affiliate you get a premium training for more than 10 times cheaper. In addition, WA has been around already for more than 14 years while Residual Revenue Secrets has launched some years ago.
In WA you don’t even need to pay for the membership if you don’t want. You can have a free membership and have it for a lifetime. Of course, I recommend upgrading to premium at some point because it provides so much value. I started myself with a free membership for around 2 months. Then I decided to go premium because I saw that it’s totally worth.
Residual Revenue Secrets could be worth it if you can earn more than you invest. I would be interested in buying this product if it would be cheaper. But paying hundreds of dollars each month for a training doesn’t excite me.
What do you think yourself?

Anyway, let's move now to the original article that I wrote on April 2017 about making money online with blogging.
The same principles still apply today to making money with blogging.
Making money online is becoming more and more popular. There are more than 3,6 BILLION people on the Internet and people spend buying more stuff online than ever before in the human history. One of the most profitable strategies to make a big money online is to create a blog. But How Long Does It Take to Make Money with Blogging?
Today I am going to share what I have learned with my experience. I am making more and more money each month with my blogs and I have friends who are making even +$10,000/month online.
The short answer to the question, how long it takes is: it depends. This is, of course, an answer that doesn’t tell very much so I am going to dig much deeper today. I will give very practical guidelines and even mention timelines how much will it take.
There are a few factors that define how fast you will make money with blogging. I know guys who have made their first dollars within a week after starting but sometimes it takes 6 months to earn even $5. Let’s have a look at the factors that define your speed.
Let’s say that don’t have a 9-5 job, no kids or wife. You have a capability to work 60-80 hours a week with your blog. Compare this to a guy who is working 40 hours a week, feeding his kids and keeping his wife happy. How many hours can he spend for blogging? Probably max.10 hours a week. If he’s sleeping 4 hours per night, maybe a bit more but you get the point.
The more you work, the faster you will get the results. If your blog posts get hypothetically 5 visitors a day on average. If you have time to write 10 posts, it means that you have 50 visitors per day. But if you write 100 blog posts, you have 500 visitors a day. The more visitors you have, the more likely some of them will buy something from your blog.
There was a guy who succeeded with his blogs. He had been working with his blog part-time 3 hours a day on average. He couldn’t work more because he had a 9-5 job also. He was already earning +$3,000/month online so he decided to quit his job to have more time for blogging.
Then he had 14 hours a day for blogging instead of 3 hours that he had before. But do you know what? Sometimes he got done much less in 14 hours than he made before in 3 hours. He was living in an illusion that he has so much time that he doesn’t need to be effective.
Let’s say that I give 2 guys one hour to write a blog post. The other one starts writing right away and doesn’t open new tabs, while the other one sets first background music, then checks Facebook news feed. After writing 200 words, he checks quickly if somebody has sent him a message in WhatsApp. In the meanwhile, the other guy has already written +1,000-word post.
You understand the point that if you focus better, you will achieve results faster. But if you check Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram and so on when you should be working, it will take much more time to make money with blogging.
If you want to be a successful blogger, you need to spend some money on domain hosting and for a domain name. Other things are really up to you but by spending money you will most likely speed up the process. Have you ever heard the old saying, “If you want to make money you need to spend money?” The rule applies to making money with a blog.
You can outsource content writing which will bring more content to your site. It can add authority in Google’s eyes which make you rankings better, brings more traffic and adds your revenue. You can also buy comments which boost your Google rankings as well.
Do you create a design and logo yourself or you do you outsource it on Fiverr? What about social media marketing? Do you go to each social media after writing a blog post or do you just use MassPlanner to automate your social media activities?
In the beginning, I was a little bit “afraid” of spending money on my blog. But then I realized that it speeds up the process and will help me to reach my income goals much faster. Have you ever seen an ultimately successful entrepreneur who would do 100% of the things himself? I guess not. It’s wise to outsource things to make your blog larger faster.
You can work on your website very “effectively” without making any money if you are concentrating on wrong things. I will give you an example. You have three blog posts that you would like to update to monetize your website. First of them is getting 300 visitors a month, the second one gets 50 visitors a month and the third one gets 30 visitors a month. Which one of the pages should you update to maximize your income?
Of course, the first one that has 300 visitors/month. There is 6 times more traffic than on a second one and 10 times more traffic than a third one. In the other words, you will make money 10 times faster by concentrating on the first blog post instead of the third one.
You should always take a pause and think, “What are the actions that will bring the greatest benefits for my blog right now?” Then eliminate useless tasks and concentrate on the most important tasks. Business coach Brian Tracy says, “You will never have enough time to everything you want but you will always have enough time to do everything you need to do.”
Have you heard the famous quote by Jim Rohn? “You’re The Average Of The Five People You Spend The Most Time With.” I fully believe in that principle and we can apply it to making money by blogging.
Where did you learn how to earn money with your blog? Did somebody teach you who has never earned anything with a blog or don’t even have a blog himself? Or have you got training from an online millionaire who runs several successful blogs and has seen in practice how the process goes?
It’s very important that you get the right training that works. It will definitely speed up your process a lot. Of course, it depends on how fast you take action but if you apply principles you heard from successful bloggers, you will most likely see results much faster.
That’s why I always recommend to having a training in Wealthy Affiliate. It’s created by online millionaires who have made big money online themselves. They really know what they are talking about. In addition, you can connect with other online entrepreneurs who have the same goal as you have.
In WA you can ask questions regarding your blog from guys who are making +$2,000/month, $5,000/month or even +$10,000/month with their blogs.
I believe that you would like to hear some exact times how much it really takes to earn money with a blog.
I can tell you that it’s possible to make money within a week after starting like Alex Sol did. However, he was working 70-80 hours during that week. Most of the time it takes much longer to earn your first dollars if you don’t have any prior knowledge. By the way, how much time does it take to break even after paying your university fees?
If you have paid $30,000 for the university it takes many years to reach even 0 if you start counting from the day you started the school. In the other words, you can make money with a blog much faster than by going to the university.
I have heard that many guys made their first income 3-6 months after starting their very first blog. With my newest language blog, it took 1,5-2 months to make my first income and I was working only around 5 hours a week with that.
Many times we are talking about the magical $10,000/month mark with online incomes. I know many people on Wealthy Affiliate who reached that mark. Dom Wells reached it in 3 years and Colton James in under 15 months. Then I also met a guy who had to work with a blog for 2 years almost full-time and was still earning only $200/month. Probably by making a few changes with his site he would have been able to boost his income from $200/month to $2,000/month quite quickly.
If you work one year full-time (min.40 hours/week) with your blog by using some money, you will for sure achieve great results. The key is consistency and persistence. Most people give up after 1-3 months because they don’t see any results. It’s nonsense because new blogs start to get more traction on Google usually after 3-6 months.
Follow these 5 principles to make money online with your blog much faster:
1.Use at least 10 hours every week. The more the better.
2.Work effectively. Don’t scroll Facebook or Youtube while you are working.
3.Invest money on your blog to speed up the process.
4.Concentrate on doing the most profitable tasks.
5.Get training and support from experienced bloggers and online entrepreneurs.
By following these rules you can’t fail. Keep on working and learning. Failures are the part of the journey but you must always get up and never give up.
Are you making money with blogging? When did you start? What have things helped in your process?
Today I am going to share 7 awesome online jobs that allow you to travel around the world. Nowadays it’s becoming more and more popular to work online and travel around as a digital nomad. One big reason is that today it’s easier than ever in the human history. There are more than 3,5 billion potential clien…krhm.. people online which gives incredible opportunities.
One of the classical methods of making money online. Basically, affiliate means the following:
You can promote products on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, on your website/blog, on a forum or literally anywhere you want. But in my opinion, the best way is to have your own website where you can promote useful products for your readers and followers.
Choose a niche, for example, language learning. Build a website where you share tips and resources to learn new languages. Then you can promote products that have helped you or other learners to learn languages faster.
You will get the best resources by really being helpful and by concentrating on helping rather than making money. Of course, you need to think about the money thing too if you want to earn it but the main focus should always be on helping your readers.
If you want to become a successful affiliate marketer and earn a living online, I recommend heading to Wealthy Affiliate. It’s a community and a training center affiliate marketing where you will get full support to start your own online business (for free).
Blogging is usually related to affiliate marketing because most of the time successful affiliate marketers are earning money from their blogs. But affiliate marketing is not the only way to make money with your blog.
You can also use Google Adsense and other ad services like CPM from Amazon. In that kind of services, you are earning money every time when somebody clicks your ad. They don’t even need to buy anything because only a click makes a commission for you.
However, those earnings per click are not usually very high. When you can earn even $1,400/sale or more with affiliate marketing, you will earn usually maximum $2/click. And most of the time is much less. Anyway, there are people who are making a full-time income with Google Adsense but usually, it’s not their only income source.
If your blog has lots of followers, you can earn money with hundreds of different ways. Different companies may offer you free products to make a review about them or you can have flight tickets to a paradise island for free.
If you can write and read two languages fluently, you can already be a translator. If you have two native languages, you can translate those languages, for example. On some websites, you would need to have a professional certificate to translate but definitely not always.
One great company is One Hour Translation. They have some requirements but not too strict ones. I made an application to work as a translator from Finnish to English or from English to Finnish. First, they rejected my request because I am not a full-time translator but after a while, they came back to me and accepted.
You can also work on Fiverr or many other marketplaces like Upwork. Do you know other great places on the Internet for translators? Let us know in the comments below.
You can work online as a freelance writer, translator, web designer, social media expert, musician etc. There are thousands of different freelance jobs but one of the most popular is definitely freelance writing.
People need content for their websites, blogs, social medias and many other places. I am hiring, for example, writers to my websites regularly. Fresh content makes Google rankings better and brings in more traffic.
It can take some time to build up your reputation as a writer but you can earn quite well if you can provide very valuable content.
Take a look at HireWriters. It’s a place where you can work as a freelance writer or buy articles from other writers. In order to become a writer there, you need to be a native English speaker. They seem to be very strict about that rule because they want to provide the high quality for their clients.
You can teach your native language or other languages that you have also studied yourself. One of the great places to earn money is Italki. You don’t need to be a certified language to earn money from Italki. You can become a community tutor and earn money just by chatting with the other users.
You can also join as a professional teacher even without a degree but then you need to prove Italki that you have enough skills to do that.
One way to earn money online by teaching languages is to create a language learning website and promote useful products as we mentioned above. I can consider myself as a “language teacher” because I am teaching on my website how to learn languages easily and quickly.
Meanwhile, I am promoting products that could help people to reach fluency in their target languages. (By the way, I speak 4-5 languages fluently so I have some expertise on language subject).
This method has been there even before the Internet but nowadays it has become much easier than ever. You can create an investing account in 10 minutes and start investing right away.
I am talking here about investing rather than day-trading because it seems that 99% of traders lose more money than what they are earning. When you are an investor, you pick up good companies and buy their stocks. Then your money is working for you.
You can also consider ETFs and other investment methods. If you are from Nordic countries like I am, I recommend joining Nordnet. I haven’t used stock market brokers for U.S. citizens. If you are from U.S., could you recommend some brokers?
The Internet has opened lots of new opportunities and of the greatest is Youtube. You can reach millions of people through their platform and affect their life. Meanwhile, you can make a significant income with your Youtube channel.
On Youtube, you can earn money through Google Adsense, product promotions, affiliate marketing and with a hundred other ways. If you are interested, we have also written a full article about making money on Youtube.
If you are interested in making money online, I recommend taking a step-by-step training from somebody who has done it for a long time. Wealthy Affiliate is the best online business training center and community made by two very successful online entrepreneurs.
