3 Easy Steps To Get You Started Earning Money Online
1) Getting enrolled at Wealthy Affiliate University
First thing you need to do is get enrolled at Wealthy Affiliate. It’s free to join, and you will the need all the training you can get. You can do this on your own but I would highly recommend against that. It will take you a lot of time and money to learn on your own. Getting expert training at no cost is a no brainer.
Here are the lessons you will get for free at WA.
2) Build your own Website
Easier than it sounds. There is a ton of support going through the process. It also is one of the most fun things that I’ve done in a while! I know that you’re going to enjoy it too. This is literally a plug and play type of thing.
3) Join Affiliate Programs
This is the treasure to your success online. Affiliate programs are free to join. After all, you’re providing free advertising for their company. You will have the ability to blog about whatever you love or what you’re passionate about and make money!

Let’s dive into this a little bit. Say you’re passionate about baseball caps. What’s your website is going to be about? Baseball caps! And not only that, you’re going to make money on something love! How? Through affiliate programs!
Amazon, for example, is one of the largest affiliate programs on the net. Any baseball cap that you advertise on your website, and connect people to Amazon to purchase it you will get a commission off of that sale. How does it work?
4000 Visitors a Week
We’ll dive in a little deeper and elaborate. Amazon gives you a percentage of everything you sell. We’ll do some basic math! Say you have 4000 visitors a week. This is very possible! If you’re on the first page of Google and there are over 3 billion people in the world surfing the internet. Can you see the picture?
I was in automobile sales for a few years, I love ratios and math. So let’s say 10% of your 4000 visitors purchase something. Amazon pays you 4% commission on your sales. The average price for a baseball cap is $30. Now let’s just say only 10% of your visitors purchase one baseball cap. That’s $480!
the break down
4000 visitors a week.
10% make a purchase
4000 x 10% = 400 customers
400 customers x $30 a baseball cap = $12,000
Your take home is 4%
$12,000 x 4% = $480
on a Larger scale
So $480 a week times 4.2 weeks in a month. That’s a little over $2,000 a month! The icing on the cake is that Amazon doesn’t only pay you on the item you are advertising but everything that your customer leaves with in their Cart. You should be falling out of your chair right now! lol 🙂
So if your visitor goes to Amazon from your website because they saw a baseball cap that they liked. And now they’re at Amazon and they decide to purchase not just your baseball cap (that you were advertising), but they also want to buy a baseball glove, and maybe spend about $50 on that. They also want their favorite baseball team’s jersey (because your customer is going to a baseball game). How many people in this country go to baseball games?
That’s not all!
Now he wants to buy his wife a baseball cap and a jersey as well! You get commission off of EVERYTHING (that your customer leaves with in their cart). Now when this happens with countless customers that visit your website weekly. I don’t even want to do the math. It would take too much time doing it.
Can You do this?
I know a lot of you might be saying, “There’s no way I can do this.” I want to reassure you that using the training provided to you from Wealthy Affiliate is all that you will need to get there.
don’t worry about upsells
You don’t have to worry about upsells or buying more products. Wealthy Affiliate is really an all-in-one product. When you join WA you’ll be thinking to yourself “why didn’t I find this sooner!”
“..stop thinking.. and start doing”

I am stopping for a minute to offer my agreement about the Wealthy Affiliate platform. I have been working on my website for a year and it is fun. My niche follows a hobby in paper crafts and many avenues have opened up for me. I can now satisfy many interests for myself, one being writing and the second telling others about the craft.
Hey, but I have to admit computers was not something I grew up with. WA is seen me through and I received extra help from support when I had road blocks in starting my own Shop.
Hi Sherry! Thanks for stopping by. I’m happy to hear you’re growing and having a good time building your site. I too love to write. It’s a passion I never knew I had. I would’ve never thought I’d enjoy it as much as I do. I guess growing up and in school we all dread those essays we have to write. That’s probably why I always stayed away from it, but when you’re writing about something that you really want to write about. It’s a whole different story.
You also make a valid point of how technology has become more user friendly, and how Wealthy Affiliate keeps you, the user, in mind when building their training program. They make it so easy for everyone to create an online business. Who would’ve known that you can build a website in 4 easy steps! I really enjoy doing it! Anytime I can offer my assistance please let me know. Just connect with me here or inside WA.
I must say that WA has helped me too in terms of learning about affiliate marketing. It was the first time I really understood about affiliate programs and advertising. This is all new to me, but I managed to build my first website! I think it’s really cool! Hopefully, the 4,000+ unique visitors a week can follow as well as making money.
Hi Raquel! Thanks so much for reading this article. I’m happy to hear you’re with WA too and progressing learning the business of affiliate marketing. If you keep up the hard work I don’t have a doubt in my mind that you will get to those 4000+ visitors. I currently know of people at Wealthy Affiliate that get 10,000s visitors a month. Just keep learning from WA. Their platform is not only for the newbies and intermediate users, but for the advanced as well. There is new training coming out every day. You will want to stay on top of the ever changing market. As you know, things are always changing. Keep up your hard work post a lot of content, this alone will help you tremendously. Then of course, being the personable person you are. People like sharing their business with people they like. Thanks again for stopping by.
Cheers to Success and hard work
What a great break down of how to make money in affiliate marketing. You have thoroughly shared it all in a nutshell, which is great. It’s interesting that you pointed out the importance of building a website. I can remember my “start” with affiliate marketing, that always left me wondering why I struggled so online promoting things. I then, had no idea of doing many of the things you’ve mentioned. I can now see why it’s so important to learn how to do affiliate marketing the right way. Just wondered… How do you feel about most social sites rejecting affiliate links if you don’t have, a official website or blog? I notice Pinterest and Google plus communities is not as friendly concerning certain links.
Hey, thanks for commenting Bev. I’m glad to hear that you’re a fellow internet marketer. Isn’t it the best occupation in the world! I really enjoy doing something that I’m passionate about. Which is helping people earn money, and that’s what affiliate marketing allows us all to do.
About Pinterest and Google + I’ve noticed the same situation. Particularly with Pinterest. I must comment, it is a wonderful social platform. But yes they require trusted sources to be able to share. Which I can certainly appreciate from a members point of view.
We’ll just have to work diligently on making our website a trusted source. Which we also learn how to do within Wealthy Affiliate.
Thanks so much for your input.
The concept of making money online is something I always had an interest in, but have always been worried about scams as you know. I have heard about this wealthy affiliate program quite a few times and it seems pretty legit. How helpful is the community within this program when it comes to newbies? I just worry about the support for someone just starting out. Thanks!
Hey Ralph, I haven’t found a more newbie friendly place that Wealthy Affiliate. I’ve been online for a couple of years now, reviewed dozens and dozens of making money opportunities, and this is your safe haven. You can count on WA to be there for all of your needs. I’ve been there for going on two years now, and I’m planning on my third year. The best thing to take note of is that there is no quick solution to making money online, any product that says that there is you can consider a scam.
There will be step by step training inside the program and several ways to seek support such as classrooms, live chat, and private messaging. You will be able to get one on one help with the owner as well. Good luck to you and wish you much success!
