Looking for step by step instructions on how to make money online and in particular with affiliate marketing. Join the club.
This website is my journal with the purpose of detailing my actions and helping others to build an online business one way or another. You can find out more about me on this page.
You will not find pages of fluff and testimonial sales pages pointing to a dozen “click here” links on every page. Just quick, simple steps and straightforward commentary. Yes, there are affiliate links where websites or programs pay me for the referral. This does not cost you any extra.
Building a website to help Make Money Online
The very first step I took was to find a website that would help me build a blog and teach me what I needed to know about having an online business.
The website I found was called Wealthy Affiliate. It is a community of people helping each other and teaching the steps they have taken to build their websites and promote themselves online. You can join for free and this allows you two free websites.
On this website is a pile of information to help you get a website up and running, finding ideas to promote products and tools to bring it all together. It is an absolute gem. The (paid) membership community here is a wonderful community all helping each other with basic “help this has happened” questions and constructive evaluations of your work. Unlike other programs, the community is confident in discussing the content of their websites under construction, rather than worrying that someone else might steal their idea.
There is constantly updated training sessions all the time and more recently training on the new changes required by Europe incase any website is accessed from there.
Members evaluate your website and offer advice, help you by commenting on your posts and help you build your social media profiles as well. It is a very interactive community. You can blog within the site as well and this can help with Google SEO.
Start up cost $0…..
As previously mentioned you can check out the basics of the website completely free of charge and with no time limit. For the first 7 days, you will actually be able to access some premium features such as the blogs, communication and live chat. After that time, you will still have access to your two free websites and the first section of each training course but the extra communication features will be discontinued. So plan on finding out as much information as you can within the first 7 days and if you are really happy with the website and decide to upgrade to premium, you will have extra training available to turn your website from good to awesome.
The opportunity to upgrade to premium (which is the paid membership) if you so desire can happen at any time, and whilst this is a wonderful opportunity you still have the opportunity to earn money even as a free member through affiliate marketing by inviting others to join the website. How good is that?
As a free member, you can get two websites up and running using a special domain called site-rubix. As a premium member, you can get a further 23 of these sites, plus another 25 with your own domain name, and much more information so that you can turn your basic website into a fantastic website.
There are two sections. The first is primarily related to setting up a website or blog and the other a boot camp for affiliate marketing.
Here is a link to my profile in Wealthy Affiliate.
I recommend a FREE startup. Get yourself involved in the community. Get your two websites up and running, then complete the rest of the steps to find products and customers and if you start making some money then you can decide if the premium package is beneficial. That is what I did.
Once you have a website up and running, you have taken the first step to build your own online business.
