Often people’s 1st question is “When will I make Money” and I understand people all over the world are looking for ways to make money and hoping for a quick fix.
I don’t want to put you off being here but I am going to tell you, there is no way to get rich quick a part from a lottery win and you will see all kinds of websites and landing pages telling, You can make money while you do nothing. All you do is pay X amount of dollars and we will do the rest.
WARNING!!!! These are SCAMS
Promises of quick money when really they should be saying – Join now and we will take your money.
I have been an Affiliate Marketer for sometime now and I know success takes time and loads of hard work so if this is the type of person you are, please keep reading.
You need to want to work hard.
You need to Believe in YOU and want to build a business that is truly Succesful and you need to have Focus, Persistence, Courage and patience to watch your website grow into an awesome place where 1000’s of people visit to get your help.
They may want to buy a product you recommend or a service you recommend or maybe you want to teach people how to do a certain thing, for example, play an instrument, grow a garden or play a sport.
Whatever you choose as your Niche will need you guidance and your personal touch and some really excellent content to attract more and more people to your site.
Have you got these qualities?
If you answered, Yes, Then well done,lets keep going.
Ok, You have decided you want to build a business.
The 1st thing you need to do is write down some Goals.
When do you want to start the process?
How many hours a week are you prepared to put into learning the skills and working on your website?
How much money do you want to earn? $500 extra per week, $5k per month, $7k per month? What is your money Goal?
When you have written your Goals, sign and date the piece of paper and place it somewhere you can see it every day to remind you to keep working hard to achieve some awesome results.
Plan each week starting on a Sunday evening and then when your weekly plan is written down, write down daily tasks to complete and tick them off when they are done
When choosing a Niche always make sure the niche you choose can be monetized as you grow your website.
Choosing a niche is great fun as there are literally millions of subjects to choose for example
Lets look at a few Niches: Football boots for girls, Football boots for extra large feet, Gaming consoles for beginners, Headsets for Gaming Professionals, Turmeric Supplements for Joints, CBD Products, Best Basketball for professionals, Ski boards for juniors, Western Saddles, Showjumping Bridles, Dog grooming equipment, Baby strollers for off-road…
The list is never ending and all of the ones I chose and millions more will be a great niche to build a business around.
When choosing your theme, if you are a member of Wealthy Affiliate, my no.1 recommendation, you will get to choose from over 3000 WordPress themes and find one to suit your niche and the great thing is, if down the track you don’t like it, you can simply go to your dashboard in your website build area and change your theme at no cost as it is part of your membership.
When choosing your business domain name always go for a dot-com URL as this seems to be more appreciated and noticed by Google Bing and Yahoo and try not to have hyphens in the name i.e. www,dog- clothes- for- your- dog.com as this looks messy.
www.dogclothersforyourdog.com is much better looking.
Also try and keep your name as short as possible. Some of the most popular names are nike, google, bing yahoo, tristar, reebok.. Now you most likely won’t get one as short as that but work hard trying to find a domain name that suits your business and your niche.
Domain names can be purchased in many places but I bought mine from within WA to keep all my business in one place and it costs around $13-99 for a year which is great
Once you have chosen your niche, chosen your theme and bought your domain name you can now click create website and within around 30 seconds Wealthy Affiliates awesome system will create your website!!
Now you are ready to Rock n Roll and start learning how to build your business
In Wealthy Affiliate there are 2 training programs for you to attend. The 1st one os called OEC which is Online Entrepreneur Certification and consists of 50 lessons and the 2nd one is BootCamp which is more for people who want to learn the Money Masking Online referring Wealthy Affiliate and my suggestion is to build a niche site 1st so you learn all the in and outs of this process as it will prepare you and give you so much knowledge when if and when you decide to build another site on what we call MMO.
For now keep it simple by going to the OEC and if you click OEC you can get started now for free.
Membership in Wealthy Affiliate
There are 2 Memberships within Wealthy Affiliate
The 1st one is free and is really for hobby builders who are not serious about building a future online and the other membership is the Premium Membership and there is a special bonus offer if you join for free and upgrade within the 1st 7 days, you will only pay $19 to go Premium for your 1st month and after that the fee is $49 which is amazing considering all you get for this price.
Investing in yourself and your business is so important and if you are serious about becoming successful as an Affiliate Marketer break this price down and think about this. For a cup of coffee sacrificed every week, you can own your own online business and do you want to know the really cool part?
If you refer people to Wealthy Affiliate with your unique link you get as a premium member, you will receive an ongoing commission every month your referral is with Wealthy Affiliate and this can add up to a substantial income for you as you grow and refer people.
Wealthy Affiliate has the highest commission payout in the Industry which as members we all love so much.

I rate my journey with Wealthy Affiliate so far a 95/100 and the only reason it doesn’t get 100 is because it can become addictive spending time in Wealthy Affiliate chatting with other members and time goes so fast and when you are building, it is great to be in the community as you learn so much and it is fun however you need to place a time frame on how long you spend in there each day otherwise you can lose momentum with your learning and building.
