Would you be interested in learning how to become your own BOSS
rather than “busting your gut” working for someone else?
Oftentimes that “someone else” not even appreciating your efforts or recognising your talents!
If this describes even part of how you feel, well, you are just one of many and it’s definitely not a new phenomenon among workers.
Don’t get me wrong, when your job is good and you are happy at what you’re doing for a decent wage……..that’s great, really great and you are one of the lucky ones.
But it does not mean you can’t dream about having your own business and becoming your own boss.
What I’m going to talk about today is how to make money online working at home……or indeed, from working anywhere in the world with internet access.
In addition and to make things easier, you can start off working in your spare time while deciding how far you want to go – to stay part-time or to expand to a full time business.
And, you will find this hard to believe, to make things even EASIER and SIMPLER, you can try out my proposal for FREE.
Yes, you can become a Starter Member, get training and build two websites without having to pay anything.
Everybody loves this feature as it means you can “dip your toe in the water” so to speak and try things out, then if it’s not for you, well, nothings lost.
Making Money Online – How Does It Work?
This topic of “just how do you make money online” can cause confusion. Defining how to do this is not as simple as it sounds because there are just SO MANY different ways you can earn money online, just like we know there are so many different ways to earn money in the offline world.
When you think about it, asking that question is no different than asking “how do I make money?” because of the many different ways people find to make money. So, if you give me a few minutes of your time I am going to explain exactly what the process is and what the foundation for online success starts with.
Sound good to you? OK, let’s start.
So first off, the foundation for how to work online from home…
Step 1: The Foundation of Online Success – A Website
No doubt about it, you need a WEBSITE of your own to become successful online.
People try to hack together a business without a website and they end up failing. You cannot spam the heck out of Facebook, Twitter etc., and expect results, you NEED A WEBSITE.
Each of us will have our own preferences, but have a look at this example of a website created in Wealthy Affiliate.
A website is equivalent to the foundation for a building. In order for a builder to successfully build a house or an architect to design a skyscraper, it requires a solid foundation. An online business is no different and your foundation will be your website.
You don’t want a “mud hut”. By this I mean, don’t build anything that is a mud hut (low quality or without a foundation) because it can easily collapse. You want to build a solid foundation and this requires a website…and this will allow you to build your virtual sky scrapers.
You can learn how to build “skyscrapers”. I am not a fan of building something that “can be washed away by the rain”, definitely not a long term business model. So get the foundation right from the start and, when you build something substantial, you will be VERY SUCCESSFUL online.
Step 2: Building Your Virtual House – The Content
OK, so now you have your very own website, now what. Well, the next step in the process is to create content. Content will be one big reason why you get a good deal of your traffic (through Search Engine Optimisation – SEO). Next, your ability to build relationships with your visitors (which leads to revenue), and finally, the creation of your brand (which will lead to a long term, ongoing business).
What do I mean by Content – Content can be a variety of things, from text, to comments/dialogue within your content, to video and audio.
Search engines like Google love websites that are content rich and so do PEOPLE…..your website visitors.
Build quality content and the buyers will come.
Step 3: Putting Your Foundation on a Busy Street – Get Traffic
Potential Visitor Traffic
You now have your foundation for success, now you need “visitor’s eyes” on your website, also known as website traffic. But how do you get this sort of traffic?
There are many ways in which you can do this, content being the first and foremost thing for you to focus on.
- Writing Content
- Creating Videos
- Getting Rankings in Google (which comes from content)
- Paid Traffic
- Ad Buys
These are some of the things that can be learned within Wealthy Affiliate, the top place to get an education in online business anywhere.
So if you don’t understand what some of these things mean, they can most definitely be learned.
The Wealthy Affiliate community and Kyle himself, will be more than happy to help you out with any of your questions – you simply submit a question within Wealthy Affiliate. However, you do need to create your Free Starter Account first…..yes, it’s free so nothing to lose, right!
Step 4: Website Goes Live – The Money Part
This is where it gets really fun. There are 100’s of ways you can make money from a site that has traffic. Here are just a few of the proven ways:
- Selling Advertising (to other website owners)
- Selling Affiliate Products
- Selling Amazon Products
- Selling Products that You Own
- Selling the Actual Website
- Google Adsense (putting ads on your site)
This is just a small sample of the possibilities. Once you have your very own website (easy to create these days), content and some traffic…the sky is literally the limit.
Whether you are looking to earn a “part time” income or you want to earn a substantial living online, this is up to you. For additional information and detail, go to why do I need a website for my business? and why become an affiliate marketer.
Do Not Try This Alone!!
The absolute first thing I would suggest is that you DO NOT go at it alone.
Don’t try to find your way through the “wild west”. There are too many “cowboys” and too many scams out there, too many “vulture” gurus, and too many people giving out misinformation.
That is why I want to invite you to MY hangout, the place where I help people like YOU every day, for free. No catches, no credit card, just fill out a form and you’re IN!
