How can I Make a Living Online – Hard Work is the Key to Success

Hi and welcome to my post on how to make a living online and today I am going to cover some gold nuggets that have made me successful online.

2019 is here and with this comes opportunity like never before as the Internet world explodes with over 4 Billion people looking for things to buy, build, sell, make, teach and learn and if you are prepared to learn what it takes then stick around, grab a coffee and let’s get into this.

A Great Platform

People say, you can do this on your own and I agree with this but only if you already know all there is to know about owning and growing a successful business online.

If not, I suggest you join a platform that offers you everything you will ever need to learn all the skills, use all the available tools and get help from over 1800 experts within the community.

The platform I am talking about today is Wealthy Affiliate and as over 1.4 million people will tell you, it truly is the best place to learn how to create and build a truly successful business Online helping people all over the world learn from your knowledge of the things you love most.

Niche/ Product/Service

There are a few choices when it comes to building a business online and here are a few suggestions

Affiliate Marketing, Shopify, E-Commerce, Writing a book and many more of course.

My personal favourite is Affiliate Marketing as I have found this works so well with the trending market.

More and more companies offline are turning to the Internet to market their products and services so more and more companies are also looking for great Affiliate Marketers and it is a very lucrative way to make money online.

Here’s how it works

You choose a product for example- Let’s say you choose Fishing Gear as your niche.

Here is an image on the results for fishing gear: 

Ok, now you want a domain name relating to fishing gear with a. com and to buy a domain name you can go to NameCheap, go-daddy or buy one from the platform I use for around $13.99 per year which is great.

Then you need to create a website so you will need a theme and the platform I use has over 3000 themes to choose from to suit what you are interested in.

Ok, then once you have done this, you will click create and with around 40 seconds your website will be created ready for you to build. Exciting now as this is when it all gets serious.

Wealthy Affiliate uses WordPress for your theme and content which is awesome and it is built into the system as well – Everything is in 1 place which is very cool 🙂

Working and building


When people ask me” How can I make money Online?” I simply tell them this.

All you do is join Wealthy Affiliate, choose your niche and create your website and then do the training offered within the platform to learn all the skills you need to become a successful online business owner. The only thing you have to do is, Work hard, stay focused, set your goals and every chance you get, work and build your website so people from all around the world visit your site.

The more great information you can share with people, the more people will come.

You will learn how to do Keyword research which is vital if you want Google Bing and Yahoo to like you and rank you and the more you share the better. Content is a key to Success also.

Wealthy Affiliate uses a program called Jaaxy which is also part of being a premium member and it is used so much and it rated as the best keyword tool around

Keywords are essential and must be used every time you are about to share information to help people, whether its a product review, a blog about something you enjoy, any content must have keywords in the title and the body of the post/blog.

What’s next

Ok, you now have a solid foundation and you are ready to apply to Companies to Affiliate for them and this is a really easy process. All you do is type in Google, Affiliate programs for… and fill in your niche and here are a few examples for you and of course you have these as well.

Once you have applied to the companies you choose, you will get your own unique links and banners to place on your website advertising the company and products if you choose this.

When visitors arrive at your site looking to buy from your recommendation, they click on the link and it takes them directly to the company’s website and they go shopping. You then receive a commission for helping the company out- It’s really that easy and very lucrative as well.

As you can see the results for these 3 alone is huge and if you type into Google Affiliate Program for.. and fill in any niche/service/product, I am sure you will be amazed and the numbers are set to grow with the trends as I mentioned before so it is the perfect time to start building your online business.

When will I make money?

As the title of this post says- How can I Make a Living Online – Hard Work is the Key to Success

Everything we do in life where we want to become truly successful and I know you will agree with me on this.

World Famous Athletes, Sports Car drivers, Authors, Comedians, Actors, Business Owners (people like Anthony Robbins, Richard Branson, Bill Gate, Oprah Winfrey, Warren Buffet, Sir Edmund Hilary, The late Great Sir Peter Blake …. all worked extremely hard to become Successful, in fact at times, they felt like they might give up, but they didn’t, in fact, this is when they worked even harder to break through and win to become so successful today.

Yes, you are going to make mistakes, have hiccups along the way, get frustrated and maybe even think about stopping but if you want this, you too will push yourself along to achieve maximum results and, Yes, Success and you will become great friends.

Now, I’m not saying you will be famous however if this is what you want, then go for it as it is possible to do and be whatever you put your mind to as long as you play by the rules and they are.

Set your Goals- Make sure they are realistic, as you start out, set daily tasks to do and tick each one off when completed, think about the reason WHY you are doing all this and let your WHY always keep you motivated.

Whether you do this part-time due to having a full-time job or full time, it’s up to you as long as you make time every day to do what you can. You may have to sacrifice certain things to achieve the results you want. This is often part of our life-changing habits to become successful.

Kick around with positive like-minded people- you will find this within the Community at Wealthy Affiliate and I am telling you, the people are amazing and so kind and helpful to everyone.

I am an ambassador within the platform and I enjoy this role as I love seeing people progress and learn and grow and become successful
