Is It Possible to Make Money Online? – 5 Examples from Wealthy Affiliate
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.
1.Colton James – Financial Independence for 20 Years Old Boy
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.
2.Dom Wells – $0 to $10k In 3 Years
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.
3.Nathaniell Brenes – Earning Dollars in China
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!
4.Alex Sol – Another $10,000/month Man
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?
5.Steve Razinski – Traveling Around the World
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?
Is It Possible to Make Money Online? – Conclusion
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.
If They Can Do It, You Can Do It
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.
