How To Make Money Online For BeginnersHow To Make Money Online For Beginners

Back in 2012/2013 when I first began my hunt for what seamed like the illusive possibility to earn money online, I distinctly remember certain frustrations I ran into all the time. You see, it wasn’t easy getting clear directions or a proven ‘blueprint’ back then. Heck it’s even harder these days with the amount of complete rubbish FAKE courses getting churned out on a daily basis.

It’s easy for some ‘Guru’ to say, you must learn how to make money online and then apply it to be successful. With the amount of misleading information available online these days, the vastly popular trending short courses which offer no value (Confusing the reader even more) and the shear amount of dangerous scams online, its very rare to strike it lucky on your first attempt, perhaps even impossible.

That is unless you have landed here on my site as a result of your first ever search for ways to create an online income source.

I have been in your shoes!

Spending countless hours behind the computer, loosing precious sleep all in search for the break through!. Unfortunately for many people the break through just doesn’t come and they end up either; a. quitting this online game, or b. falling for even more scams etc. For me I was in the ‘falling for more scams’ sector. That was until I realized what I was doing was just plain insane.

If something doesn’t work 15 times in a row, what made me think it was going to work on the 16th, 17th time etc. Meanwhile each program I joined was costing me hundreds of dollars just to ‘hope’ I would make back my investment/seed money.

Needless to say I stopped this madness after a few thousand dollars wasted.  Which ultimately lead me to discover the hidden secret to making money online. Ok, it’s not really a secret, more of a proven formula that worked 10 years ago and will work in 10 years from now. So lets get into it!.

Beginning An Online Money Making Journey

Step 1. Understanding The Only Way I’ve Conquered This Online Space

While many Guru’s will tell you there are many ways to make $100, $1000, $10,000 in a day, all you have to do is buy their PDF and read it..

These methods can include;Beware Of Online Scams

  • promoting these very same products to other wanna be entrepreneurs, (I found many of these Guru’s only make their money by selling their own course, without actually teaching a proven method for success – Many have never made a dollar online…).
  • Email Marketing – Usually sending emails about offers to other people stuck in the ‘make it online’ rut.
  • CPA – Getting paid when people take small actions such as filling in a zipcode,email etc. However I found it’s very hard to be approved by these people offering CPA offers.
  • MLM – Multi Level Marketing was a big one for me. That is until I realized most people are lazy and wouldn’t promote the product to help make us all money. Not a scam, but very frustrating. I worked my tail off to get plenty of sign ups to this product. But NONE of them wanted to do the same to make their share of the money.

Which leads me to….

How I Now Earn More Money Online Then I Did As The Owner Of A Offline Company

So some people may have guessed it. Yup Affiliate Marketing is how I have managed to break the online code and QUIT my stupid ole day job. Yes I was the Director and owner of a Painting company, but this Affiliate Marketing is 100 times more rewarding if you ask me. Truth be told, the income potential for affiliate marketing is unlimited and I honestly believe that.

Quick Summary On Affiliate Marketing

For those that have never heard of affiliate marketing, be prepared to be welcomed into a completely new online world. Once you learn what affiliate marketing is, you can never go back to google and be the same!. You will understand very shortly.

In a Nut Shell – Affiliate marketing is a way to connect a online buyer with a online supplier. Because we act as the middle man, we get a nice commission for referring that person to the store.

Affiliate Marketers NEVER:

  • Handle any products
  • Deal with the customer
  • Are responsible for refunds/returns
  • Arrange shipping
  • Handle any money (just receive payments from the supplier)

So essentially we don’t do any of the tedious work the retailers normally do, yet we still get paid. Nice right. However, most beginners looking to make money online start with affiliate marketing. This is not a bad thing of course, but it’s a terrible thing when they are not taught how to correctly achieve the results they so desire. This is what leads to many people failing at making money online.

So Whats A Proven Way To Make Money As An Affiliate?

Being a successful affiliate marketer myself, I know all to well the highs and the lows this crazy internet can throw at us.

Each company that will pay the affiliate (You & ME) may have their own set of guidelines and rules. So this is my very first and most important tip: READ the rules! Don’t break them, or you can end up in trouble, or back at square one with nothing to show for the hard work.

There are many places online whom you can be an affiliate marketer for, these are for both retail/physical and digital items (Courses, ebooks etc):

  • Target
  • K-Mart
  • Sears
  • Walmart
  • iTunes
  • Clickbank
  • JVZoo
  • etc etc etc

How I Made My RichesHow To Make $500 In 1 Day Online

One of the more popular affiliate programs out there is for You can also be an affiliate for Amazon U.K, Italy, France etc. But is where I have made my fortunes. It’s simply the BEST place to start making money online as a total beginner.

However, to even have a clue on how to make money with Amazon, getting the right affiliate marketing training program is essential to success.

Many Guru’s will tell you that Amazon offer low commissions of just 4%. Which is kind of true when you are beginning, but after you make 6 sales the commission rate goes higher than higher than higher etc. I often make $100+ commissions on just a single product from Amazon. So…. what do you say now about those kind of commissions Gurus? Like I thought..Nothing

See my income proof from just ONE day earlier this year using the affiliate program. Pretty insane hey. Never did I think I would earn over $500 in one day. So glad I didn’t listen to the Gurus about how bad Amazon is…To me that’s life changing income and it’s only going to grow higher the more work I put into it. Why would I stop, honestly why??

Can Anyone Make $500 A Day Online?

Short answer: Hell Yea!!!

While I did make $589.48 on that particular day in January, I’ve etched even closer to my first $1000 day (no proof yet, so you will just have to take my word for it). I’m seriously not saying this to brag at all. I’m far from the bragging type of person. More of a motivator. Just ask my friends/co-workers how much I try to force them into changing their lives like I have. But as the saying goes “you can lead a horse to water, but you cant make them drink it”.

Some people, this is simply wasted on. I hope it’s not wasted on you. Because you are about to discover exactly how I managed to earn much more than a full time income online last year as a relative beginner.

Step 2. Do What I Did

As I'm Not From America, I receive Cheques As My Payment.

As I’m Not From America, I receive Cheques As My Payment.

Congratulations are in order. By reading this far you have obtained more knowledge than I knew back when I first made my break through. You now know what basic affiliate marketing is and some companies that will pay you to advertise their products. Now you just gotta put it all together and this is where I help you!.

Step 2 is the most critical step you can take as a beginner wanting to learn how to make money from the internet. So please think long and hard about what I’m about share with you. This place I’m recommending is the place where I made my break through many years ago. The place that taught me how to essentially print my own bank cheques every month. The one place online that WILL teach you what they taught me and the ONLY place online I will ever recommend for a complete work from home training package.

This site is dear to my heart and is the only reason I am where I am today. I’m yet to find anything remotely close to what Wealthy Affiliate offers, so it’s easy to understand how much potential it may offer anybody else who is struggling. Yes it’s costs a small monthly fee but you can also try it for free  which gives you 2 free websites to help you get started. So just maybe, then you can finally break free, just like I did.

I even started out as a free member. But the $1000’s i now make every month make the tiny monthly fee seem like nothing. If anything, its well under priced in my opinion. But the free option is ideal for the complete beginner. Don’t think about upgrading until you have a solid grasp on how to make money.

My Message To You

I hate to see fellow humans struggling in life, then turning to the internet for some serious answers, and yes… Making a business online is a very serious subject. But anyways.. after turning to the net for ways to make life saving money online people are lead down every single path they shouldn’t be taking. Confusion, scams, surveys, clicking on ads, etc when the answer is so simple once they find it.

Problem is finding the Answer in this overwhelming online space.

Earn Passive Income Online From Affiliate Marketing.

Now that you know a bit about what I do and wHow To make Passive Income Onlinehere I got my 5 Star Affiliate Marketing Training from, do you think it’s worthwhile, this whole online home business thing?.

Wait before you answer that, can I shine in with a few persuaders. Back in 2013 I created a free website thanks to the free sign up at WA. I worked on this website which is really easy to do, for about 3 to 4 months. I started getting results after bout 2-3 weeks, meaning I was making sales at Amazon and I was earning online income. So I kept going at it for a couple hours each day after work for 3 to 5 days a week.

March of 2014 my real house painting job became so busy and I was working 60-80 hours every week for about 6 months. So I basically quit affiliate marketing for a year due to my overwhelming work status. Even though I was too busy to write anything new on my free website during that year I was still making passive income.

How you ask?

Well, the work I had done in the first 3-4 months was really paying off for me that next year in 2014 (and it still does today in 2016). So for the year I was away from online marketing I was still making a very nice passive income from just 1 small website. Passively my 1 free website had made me between 12k – 15k in 12 months when I did absolutely nothing online since. WOW!. If that’s not the best business plan I don’t know what is.

Naturally after I saw the FULL effect of affiliate marketing in full flight, I knew I had to grow. Then came along my next new website. At first I aimed to make $500 per month within 3-4 months. Boy did I smash my goal!. By 6 months this new website was making me a full time income on its own. How incredible!. So you may be able to tell where this is going…Rinse and Repeat! Make more and more, earn more and more! Sky is the limit people!. Common and touch the sky.

Step 3.

What’s The Secret Formula For Cracking The CodeThe Secret To Making Money Online

Obviously I can’t explain the entire process here as it would take me days of writing. Fortunately like I stated earlier, everything I learned and applied was taught to me over at Wealthy Affiliate. I challenge you to see if you can build a quicker full time income online from what I learned at W.A!. For a full time income to be possible in a shorter time frame, you will need to upgrade membership costs to learn at a faster rate. Otherwise you will be left scouring the internet looking for more wrong answers. But the free option is 100% suitable to every new person online.

Knowing what I know now, I believe I could build an entire online full time income within months. By chipping away at it for just 2-4 hours a day, 4-6 days a week I could extract $1000’s every month in affiliate commissions.

This is because I have followed a proven and well structured affiliate marketing course. Not only did I follow the course, I took action. I made those first baby steps to achieving my financial freedom. I learned what a keyword was, then I took action and found my own awesome keywords..etc Plus everything and I mean everything is available at Wealthy Affiliate.

    Excellent content, written well and highly informative.

    I’ve been with wealthy affiliate myself for over two years and can suggest this content is accurate 100%.

    However, I do have one concern. When you’re writing in paragraphs try and space the content out more to polish it up. I lost myself in the middle a little bit due to the paragraph being a little long.

    One thought equals one paragraph.

    Other then that it’s on point and direct and is honest. Good work.

      Hi Sam, thanks for stopping by and pointing out the oversized paragraphs, I will get onto it straight away. I must say it’s really nice to hear from other W.A. members who have years behind them. It’s a true testimony to the business when members have stuck with one company for so many years.
