I really appreciate this how to start an online business guide and Ive just signed up to your free email course.
I just joined WA about 2 weeks ago and love to see people like yourself that have become successful using Wealthy Affiliate.
Thanks, I really appreciate it!
Hey Simon great article. I think those steps you outlined are spot on.
I think there are so many online scams out there people lost so much trust that you can make money online legitimately. I think affiliate marketing is hands down the best long term way to make money. It takes the most work but its the best way.
It’s hard work but it’s so worth it.
Every time I add to my online business portfolio I like to think I’m building another skyscraper – not a wooden hut.
This means it takes a little time to build a strong foundation before I start building on it – but then the sky’s the limit and I have the business for the long-term.
It makes sense right? I’m sure there’s other ways to earn money online but for me this is the best, most passive and sustainable.
I’m quite new into online marketing. I suppose after the initial structure is built, it is then on how to generate the traffics to a certain extent that it starts to bring the passive income in. Do you have any tips or guide on the best way to generate traffics? Even better if you would be able to share some of those that you personally used. Thanks.
Hi Kenny, thanks for your question. Did you start going through the training yet? If not, you can access it here.
It’ll take you through everything from launching your first website (for free) to learning how to generate traffic and how to monetise your sites so you have an online business on your hands.
The traffic generating techniques you’ll learn include both SEO (Google, Yahoo and Bing search engines) and all of the major Social Media sites.
For me, the main traffic source across all of my sites has always been Google. On my first ever site (GrowChurch.net) is now getting 850 visits a day (26,000 a month) from Google alone. I should say this website is two years old This is because I followed the training I’ve given you access to today. There’s no reason you can’t accomplish this within your own niche. I hope this helps 🙂
You have really got me excited! I can’t wait to learn how to follow in your footsteps!
How did you get your start in online business?
I have spent tons of money and so much time on things that didn’t do anything for me except to make me poorer.
I really appreciate the help you are providing by showing me how to make it work! Thank you so much!
Thanks Tom! There’s never been a better time to start an online business than now! There’s 3.2 billion active online users and growing – the potential is huge if you know what you’re doing.
Honestly, it took me a while, like you (and so many people) I fell for every scam going. I followed the so-called expert training by the letter but never saw any results.
My turning point was when I joined a free training program and online business centre called Wealthy Affiliate.com. Feel free to check out my full (5000+ word) Wealthy Affiliate review.
I stumbled across Wealthy Affiliate by accident one night while desperately searching for a way to start an online business. If you haven’t already Tom, my best suggestion is to create your free account and click on the green tab on the left called ‘Getting Started Training” – you’ll go through the exact step by step process that I took to get me where I am today.
The community is great, help is always at hand – send me a message if you ever get stuck – but I think you’ll really like it.
