Let’s Begin

Let’s Begin Our Online Journey


Click Here.  Copy This.  Paste This Here.  That is how you make money online.  All you need to do is click, copy and paste.  How often have you heard or seen that? Maybe not in those exact words but usually something quite similar.  There are many ways to make money online but the above easy method is not one of them.

Trying to earn a living through the internet can be quite the challenge.  There are so many various ways that you can earn a living online that you may be just overwhelmed with all your options.  Some of the ways that you can make a honest living online are through:

  • Affiliate Marketing

    making money

  • Adsense
  • Blogging                                 
  • Surveys
  • Writing Articles
  • Extreme Couponing
  • Tutoring
  • Building Websites
  • Selling Domain Names
  • Conducting website and apps reviews
  • Sell your photos
  • Write and publish a Kindle ebook
  • Doing gigs on Fiverr
  • etc.

So Where Does One Begin?

Most people begin their journey of making money online with a dream.  When trying to fulfill that dream you may come across many shiny objects that may promise you that dream.  If you are anything like me you have chased those shiny objects only to discover that the shiny object was somewhat tarnished.  Not only were you disappointed but your wallet became much lighter also.

The Chase For Shiny Objects Stops Here!

What is really holding you back from running a successful online business?  Is it:

  • Lack of start up cash

  • Fear of failure
  • Lack of knowledge
  • Too many failed attempts already
  • Lack of training

Or maybe there is way too many things to choose from.  You could be suffering from information overload.  This may be harder to overcome than you think.  It is really hard to take everything you think you know and try and forget it and start over.

So What Does One Really Need To Be A Success Online?

Believe it or not they are only three things that a person needs to run a successful online business.  They are:

  • Help
  • Website
  • Put into practice what you have learned

Wow that doesn’t sound hard at all!

The first thing we need to do is find someone or something that can help us achieve our goals.  There are many programs online that will help you learn how to make money online.  There are also many individuals that can help you learn to run an online business.

Although most of the individuals that do mentor online are quite qualified they are also quite expensive.  If I could afford to pay what they are charging I would not need to be trying to earn some extra cash.

That leaves us with something like an online course or maybe an online school.

Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate

Wealthy Affiliate is the brainchild of two Canadians, Kyle Loudoun and Carson Lim.

Already having achieved success on the internet as individuals, Kyle and Carson decided to join forces.  In 2005 Wealthy Affiliate was the product they created.  It started out as a keyword list service.  For $29.99 a month you received a keyword list every week.

People really liked the service that was being offered but soon they wanted more.  Next came the forum.  As people still wanted more the concept of an online university came into fruition.  Wealthy Affiliate started to shape into what it is today.

So we have a place we can go to get the training and help that we need.  As it turns out Wealthy Affiliate also helps out with our other two requirements to succeed online and that is a website and putting into practice what you have learned.

When you join Wealthy Affiliate as either a Starter member or a premium member you get two free websites minimum.  The sites are built using WordPress.

For help with your sites as a Starter member you have access to training.  You also have access to the WA community for any questions that may come up as you build your sites.

As a Premium member you have more options available to get help with your sites.  Some of those things include the Live Chat and access to Kyle and Carson.

So everything you need to begin your journey of having a successful online business is right here at Wealthy Affiliate.

If you have any questions about where to begin on this journey I would be happy to answer them.  Just leave them below or hook up with me inside Wealthy Affiliate.

    I have heard of this Kyle Loudoun and Carson Lim many times before but I’ve never really been in a position to sign up with them!
    At the moment I am in between jobs – do you think this is a good time to start throwing my weight at their platform? Also, how hard is their lesson setup – advanced or amateur?

      Sorry to hear you are between jobs. I have found that the lessons taught at WA are easy to understand. If you are unable to afford the premium membership then you can join as a free member. You won’t have access to everything that is available to paying members but there is enough information there to get you started. Good luck!

    Thank for your motivational post. I have a dream to make enough income online so I can live a flexible lifestyle. I am really glad I found wealthy affiliate, otherwise, I would probably be lost and discouraged.

    The training I receive at Wealthy is way superior to all the platforms I have come across. You really need to put in practice every lesson. There are no shortcuts to success, but when you are part of this great community, you progress faster because you learn the right thing!

    Therefore, I also recommend Wealthy Affiliate for everyone interested in creating an online business.

    Hi Maureen,
    What a great simple post, meaning straight to the point!
    I can relate to that fact about wanting to start business online and ‘chasing shiny objects’ to discover that it does not lead anywhere. Meaning hitting the wall at some stage.
    I joined Wealthy Affiliate two months ago, and what i learned in a month is way more then i have learnt in 12 months trying to make it work myself. So i highly recommend this program to anyone. Try it for a trial, and you will see how much you will learn, to be said when you become a member of this Program you will learn way way more.

      Thanks for your comments Joana. Wealthy Affiliate definitely is the place to be if you want to learn how to run a successful online business. The fact that it is free is an added bonus for sure. Although you may learn at a quicker pace if you sign up for premium you can still learn so much at the free level!

    Wonderful History of Wealthy Affiliate and the 11 years that Kyle and Carson along with the Amazing WA Community have been helping Friends earn an income online from anywhere in the world.

    I highly recommend that anyone reading this post to also become involved with WA and learn how to create affiliate websites that are able to generate an income for years to come.

    The training and support at WA are second to none and that is why Wealthy Affiliate is ranked as the #1 Affiliate Marketing Community in the World!

      Hi Tom I agree WA is definitely doing something right. They have been around for quite some time and they have a very good track record. It is hard to find any thing negative about them. Also they are always updating to keep up with the many changes that Google throws our way.
