Making money online is actually more simple than you think. There may be several ways in which people are creating online businesses, but there is one core component to any successful online business or website. In this free video training, Kyle, one of the owners of Wealthy Affiliate, explains the process.
Understanding the Process of Making Money Online
It makes sense that the first class focuses solely on helping you to understand theprocess of making money online. The information you learn in this class will form the very foundation of your online business.
In the class, Kyle walks you through the process right from the initial audience, to the search in Google, to the website, to the niche, to the types of programs that you are going to be promoting to generate revenue.

What is Wealthy Affiliate?
Wealthy Affiliate is not only a training website where you can learn every single aspect about turning any passion into a successful online business, but it’s also a community of people you’ll want to be a part of for life. You can read my full review (includes video) of Wealthy Affiliate here.
Joining Wealthy Affiliate is one of the smartest things I’ve ever done, and it has changed my life. If you’ve been thinking about doing something online to make money, whether as something part time for extra money, or as a full time career, you’re smart to take a good look at Wealthy Affiliate. I can tell you from first hand experience that there’s just nothing else out there that compares in quality, price (free is about as good as you can get), and the overall experience.
Wealthy Affiliate began in September, 2005 by two successful internet marketers known as Kyle & Carson. Their vision was simple – create an honest open education project for people interested in starting up their own business online. They wanted to provide a safe community, away from the scams, where fellow internet entrepreneurs could help each other and learn.
Over the years Wealthy Affiliate has evolved to help many members create successful website businesses. You are led through all steps from A to Z on how to start your internet marketing business and how to make it a success.
Wealthy Affiliate’s training revolves around these 4 steps to make money online:
1. Choose an Interest. During the training, they’ll give you plenty of ideas on the topics you might choose to focus your website(s) on. I personally chose animals – I’ve always wanted to do something for a living that helps animals, so I created a website that donates 10% of commissions I make to animal charities. Think about your hobbies – specifically, how do you spend your time when you’re not working? Those are the things you’re passionate about. And you’ll learn in the training that there are tons of ways to make money focusing on ANY subject you love.
2. Build a Website. Wealthy Affiliate teaches you step-by-step how to build a website. And most of the training is in video format, with one of the owners, Kyle, walking you through every single step himself. He talks all along the way, tell you so many valuable tricks…things he’s learned in his many years as a successful affiliate marketer. He’s a fantastic teacher – it’s very easy-to-understand training.
3. Attract Visitors. There are so many ways to get visitors (also referred to as traffic) to your website. Social media is one way – places like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc. There’s also pay-per-click advertising, advertising on other websites…the list goes on and on. But what Kyle focuses on teaching us in the training is that CONTENT is the best, most effective way to get traffic to your website. “Build it and they will come,” if you will. In other words, keep putting things on your website that offer value, information and help for people, and they will be finding you pretty easily.
Wealthy Affiliate also teaches SEO (Search Engine Optimization) techniques which help you get ranked in Google and other search engines so your website will show up on the first page whenever people type in search terms relating to your niche.
4. Earn Revenue. There are a lot of ways you can make money from a website. You can get paid to let people advertise on your website, you can have google ads on your website which you get paid when people click them. You can sell products directly from your website (like a shopping website). Again, the list goes on and on. I personally like affiliate marketing – where you sign up to be an affiliate for a company, then you get paid a commission every time someone buys something using one of your “affiliate links.”
Amazon.com and Walmart.com are huge ones – most affiliate marketers are an affiliate for Amazon because there are millions of products there. You can pretty much find/sell absolutely anything from Amazon. You may never have to look any further than that, but there are certainly thousands (millions?) of companies you could be an affiliate for and promote on your websites.
