My Guide To Making Money Online:
On this page I'll be going over exactly how I make a living working online and how others, like yourself, can do the same. Yes it is possible believe it or not. I know there is a lot of misinformation out there but it can be done. Some of the many great aspects of the method I'll be covering include...
So before I get into this I think its important to give you a brief overview of who I am and where I come from.
My name is Kyle and I've been making money online since 2015.
After graduating from college in late 2014 with a degree in Criminal Justice, which I was no longer interested in, I was looking for a different path in life. On top of that my girlfriend and I were going to be moving soon for her to attend med-school. At the time she was applying all over the place and we did not know where we might end up.
The best solution I could think of was online work... which I always had somewhat of an interest in but at the time I knew nothing about.
I'm sure my situation was different from what yours is now. I was in the need of geographical freedom so that I could work from wherever I might move to. There are lots of different goals that that you may have, but the focus is the same... which is making money online.
To make a long story short: I've tried a bunch of things.... paid surveys, PTC ads, etc, and even came very close to being scammed with a "get rich quick" program early on (which I was an idiot for almost falling for at the time).
After a lot of headache, frustration, and using Google as my best friend, I finally came across something that looked promising and seemed realistic. I gave it a try and it turned out to be one of the best decisions I've made.
Making money online isn't all puppies and rainbows. It isn't something that is super easy to do like many people out there try to sucker people into believing it is.
The truth is, like anything in life, it takes real work to be successful with. What I do isn't some "push-button" system that is completely done for you.
The truth is that systems like this don't exist...they are called scams. What I do requires real work and real time. If you aren't dedicated then it more than likely won't work... simple as that.
Well the answer to this all depends on what you are looking for. For myself it was worth the work because I like having the freedom to work from where I want, when I want, all while earning a nice income.
The entire goal of making money online for me was geographical freedom and this is something I achieved.
I always had an interest in making money online even before I actually started trying. However, I never would have thought it would turn out like it has for me.
The process of how I make money online is actually pretty simple but may seem complicated at first. Basically what I do is build small websites (sometimes called micro-sites or micro-blogs) and I give people information they are looking for (sounds confusing right? Don't worry I'll explain).
Now before I go any further I want you to know that you don't need any tech skills to create a website. This isn't the 90's anymore... there are platforms out there that make it very simple and straightforward, which I will be showing you.
Anyways.... back to how I make money. So I get people to visit my websites from Google, Yahoo, & Bing search engines for free. They search for information online and I provide what they are looking for. On my websites I promote products and get paid commissions for doing so.
Big companies like Amazon, Walmart, Apple, Best Buy, and just about every store online out there has programs that will pay people to do this.
I made this spiffy little diagram to help illustrate the process and make it more clear for you...
Take Amazon for example. They have over 450 million products in the US alone, which includes just about everything you can think of.... and you can get paid to promote these.
This is one of the great things about this business model because you can promote good products that are proven to be good sellers and you can promote products that you are passionate about or have interest in.
One of the greatest things about this is that you can get paid again and again for doing something once. There is nothing better than passive income and I'll show you what I mean.
As I said, I get people to visit my websites for free from Google and other search engines. When you get your website ranked in the search engines, Google for example, there is no telling how long it will stay there. It is not uncommon to see rankings that are still on page 1 of Google that are 5+ years old.
For example take a look at this. I searched for "dog exercise toys" in Google and on the first page I found this...
This post has been ranked on page 1 since 2013. And guess what? They are promoting products on it. They are getting paid for those 10 dog toys they are promoting and have been for years. There are a lot of sites out there like this but most people just aren't aware that this is going on.
So this post, which probably only took 1 hour to write, has been making them money since 2013. Let that sink in because this is as awesome as it sounds.
As you can probably tell from the example I just gave of the website getting ranked for dog toys... what I do is create content.
I create content that people are looking for... this is the information I'm talking about. I use a tool (which I'll show you) that finds what people are looking for and then I write about it >> get ranked in Google and other search engines >> and get people coming to my site for free which then earn me money from the products I'm promoting.
What type of content do you create? The answer is pretty much anything. You can write about dog toys as shown, hair straightening, off-roading, playing UNO, working out.... literally anything. And on your site you promote relevant products to the content.
Do you need to be an expert? A common misconception is that you need to be an expert in the topic you are writing about. This is not true. There are many things that I've written about without knowing anything of prior. For example: I know nothing about "dog exercise toys", but I could do a bit of research online and write my own post on it, get it ranked in Google and so on.
Simple Overview Of The Process...
You choose a topic that you are interested in and write content around it. You get ranked in Google. Visitors searching Google come to your site for free. Some (not all) of these visitors click on the relevant products you are promoting and buy them. You then earn commissions.
And of course this keeps happening... people keep going to a single webpage after getting ranked just once. This can happen for years like I showed you.
You can get training on this and all the tools I discussed at Wealthy Affiliate.
Wealthy Affiliate is an online training program that is kind of like an all-in-one package. They provide training, tools, and other resources to become successful with this business model. Also, they are where I got started with all of this back in 2015 so I know that what they provide works.
The training here is nice because they start you off as if you are completely new to it all. You don't need to know anything. Then they walk you through the process of getting your website up, creating content, and everything.
What's also a pretty big deal in my opinion is the community aspect of Wealthy Affiliate. Its more than just a training platform. Its also a great place to communicate and connect with other aspiring and/or seasoned online entrepreneurs.
When I started out here the community was a big help to me. On the platform there are incentives for members to help others out so it is very active.
Ok so I wanted to show you the website builder because this is the part that seems to scare a lot of people away from this.
It really is nothing complicated. At Wealthy Affiliate you can have your very own website up in 4 short steps...
Then after your website is up and running it is as simple as creating content and promoting products.
A keyword tool is an absolute must when it comes to getting ranked in Google and getting free traffic. Luckily this tool is included within the Wealthy Affiliate membership.
This will allow you to find what people are looking for, how many people are looking for it, how much traffic you can expect to get once you get ranked, and more.
To say the least, this is a big deal. Its not like you can just go create a site and get ranked. Its more complicated than that. But with this tool it pretty much makes it that easy.
Wealthy Affiliate has 2 memberships: A free Starter Membership which is what I recommend when starting out, and a paid Premium Membership which is what most people tend to upgrade to later on.
The great thing about the free Starter Membership is that it is not a free trial, meaning you can be a free member for as long as you would like and are not forced to quit nor upgrade.
The free Starter Membership is what I always recommend to people just starting out. This way you have nothing to lose and get to see if its something you would like doing before paying anything. If you don't like it then you can walk away without anything lost.
You can click the button below to join Wealthy Affiliate with this free Starter Membership.
There is no doubt that the Premium Membership is better than the Starter Membership. It literally contains everything that you really need to be successful with this and to make good money. It really is an "all-in-one" package.
However, you don't need all of this when you are just starting out so I don't recommend it when joining. It costs $49/mo or less if you pay yearly, which is well worth the price if you actually consider all you are getting. However the Starter Membership is just better to start with and that's all there is to it. You can always upgrade the the Premium Membership later.
Also, at Wealthy Affiliate there is a special promotion going on right now where you get access to Premium Membership features for a limited time with the free Starter Membership. So by joining for free you get a taste of the Premium.
I'm not going to act like I know everything there is, but I can say that from my experience having been doing this since 2015, it does seem like the best option out there by a good bit.
The community aspect of Wealthy Affiliate, being able to interact and get help from other entrepreneurs quickly and easily, is one of the things that really separates them from other places. This might not seem like a big deal to you right now but you will understand if you do join.
Wealthy Affiliate isn't perfect... nothing is. There is room for improvement. There could be additional training in some areas and better tech support at times, but overall they do a great job. I really can't complain much here.
I've been a member since 2015 and never really had any big problems.
Its very important to know that you will not start making money fast with this method. I'm telling you this because sometimes I see people join that just lost their job and are in need of money right now. If you need money right now or within the next week or so, this is not for you. And actually I don't know of any online work where you can earn money right away other than if you were to work for a company via telecommuting or something like that.
What I do here takes time. It is very cumulative in nature. Remember how I showed you that posts you write can get ranked and stay ranked for years? This is what makes it very cumulative. You write a post, get it ranked, and get visitors coming to your site. Then you write another post, get it ranked, and get more visitors coming to your site. This is the process. You start out with nothing and build on it.
So before I was making in the $6,000's per month I was making in the $5,000's. And before that in the $4,000's, and so on. You can see my earning statement here from month to month for one affiliate program I'm a part of...
Its a great business model but you need to know that it takes time and be willing to give it time for it to work.
Its great if you have some income already coming in and want to quit your job in the future, or if you just want to supplement your income or something like this. But if you need money now then you will need to find something else.
One of the many great things about this is that it is extremely flexible. You can work whenever and however much you want to. So its easy to fit into any schedule, which makes it great for supplemental income or as a way to quit a current job in the future as I said.
I provided a button below to sign up. This will take you to the signup page for the free Starter Membership, which as I said is what I recommend to start out. You will see the page below when you go to sign up and all you have to do is enter your email, name, and create a password.
After creating your account you will have access to the training right away. Below is a screenshot I took of where you are going to want to go to start the core training. You are going to want to click the green "Get Started Here" button on the left-side menu...
That will take you to lesson 1 of the training. This will start you out as if you know nothing at all.
A Helpful Tip: Fill out your profile. Adding an image and writing a brief description of yourself can help more than you would think. This will make you more personable and will lead to better interaction within the community, which makes it easier to get help and such.
Also you will be able to talk to me inside Wealthy Affiliate. There are several way you can do this but the easiest is to private message me through my profile. This is definitely my preferred way of contact. Its just easier for me to keep track of things.
