How To Work Online At Home……and earn extra money that will make a difference to your life.
Or, From anywhere in the world where you can access the internet!
How Does the Process of Making Money Online Work?
Confusion surrounds this topic of “just how do you make money online?”. Defining how to do this is not as simple as it sounds because there are SO MANY different ways you can earn money online, just like it is in the offline world.
Asking that question is really 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 success online 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
Plain and simple, you need a WEBSITE of your own if you want to be 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 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 those virtual sky scrapers.
I teach people 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 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 websites that are content rich and so do PEOPLE.
Build quality content and the buyers will come.
Step 3: Putting Your Foundation on a Busy Street – The Traffic
You now have your foundation for success, now you need “visitors eyes” on your site, 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 focus.
- Writing Content
- Creating Videos
- Getting Rankings in Google (which comes from content)
- Paid Traffic
- Ad Buys
These are all 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.

Step 4: Opening Up Shop – 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 not the full extent of all the ways you can make money, but it is a sample 6 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.
