Now you can get the answers you’ve been looking for from this website. Like any business, if it were quick and easy, everybody would be doing it and rolling in the money. It’s not that simple, but I can make the transition for you much easier than what most people go through.

how to make money online

You’re here because you want to know how to make money online, and that’s what I’ll explain to you. To do this, you’re going to need a few things which I can give you if you do not have them in place. Let’s make a small list of what it will take.

Do you have a business Idea on what you’ll make your money from?
Do you have a domain name to create your website on?
Do you have a website for your, products or services?
Do you have a hosting package to operate from?
Do you have methods to create the traffic you require?
Do you have knowledge, to put the first five together correctly?


Just before giving you the answers to these six questions, I’ll explain how I got here to share with you what I’ve learned.

About ten years ago I started on the Internet learning and having hosting packages to house my website. It was about ten months ago I found the place all my websites now reside. For the first eight months, I was learning and making no money. In the last two months, while still learning I have earned more than I did since I started having websites built on the Internet just over ten years ago.

I use to program using Flash and Dreamweaver among others to build sites right up until ten months ago where everything has changed to make everything easier than it ever was before. Just so you know, even though it’s much easier than before, it still takes time and work to make the money online.

Ten months ago I started with a test site which is my hobby site. When I saw the progress I was making with it I transferred my business site over and canceled my previous hosting provider. After just a few short months my company site instantly started to rank. People were asking for added information to help them with their DIY projects.

To accommodate their requests, I created some websites to supply the information needed. Once these sites started to generate money, it was at that point I decided to establish this site. Knowing from personal experience on how to create a winning combination of the six questions above for making money.


This website is to inform anyone who wishes,
how to make money online simply by taking a free tour,
no obligations expected, by checking out what I found!


Do you have a business Idea on what you’ll make your money from?

Most people know they want to make money online, they are just not sure how to. With the free tour, you’ll embark on, you will be able to understand how and get the best ways of answering this question to finding a business for your online presence. Most people find it relatively easy and fun, and there is a backup plan for those that need more time.


Do you have a domain name to create your website on?

Most people starting off do not already have domain names, and if this is the case, I recommend to hold off on purchasing one. Even though you can search and register a domain name through my website, I would leave that up to the people that already understand the importance of the name you choose and how to choose one. You can read up more about domain names by going to this previous post I wrote What is a Domain Name and How?


Do you have a website for your, products or services?

balancing time on how to make money onlineGetting a domain name is one of the first steps to getting yourself started but you’ll need a website to display your content in a format of your choosing. Nowadays the creation of a site is much easier than it ever was in the past. The other great thing is if you’re not happy with the final look and feel of your site, you can just change the theme for a new one with a couple of clicks. In the past, you could get what we use to call templates, but they took a lot more work to change out. You had to cut, and past and transfer data around not just click a few buttons.


Do you have a hosting package to operate from?

Having a domain name and content for a website will do nothing for you in assembling everything together if you have no hosting package. You need to have storage space where your domain name can reside and have a website built on it. Once you have these three parts all in place, people can enter your domain name and see your site. With these components in place, you are ready to get to work and make things happen. To understand more about hosting you can check out Free Website Building And Hosting.


Do you have methods to create the traffic you require?

At this point, you have a domain name with a website on a hosting plan so everybody on the Internet can see it. The problem is nobody knows you exist other than the people that have your domain name. In other words, the traffic to your site is zero, and unless you do something, that will not change. There are sites you can go to that will show the ranking on any domain name you enter. Established and well-ranking websites will show a ranking where other sites that have a small amount traffic will come up with zero’s.


Do you have knowledge, to put the first five together properly?

Help for how to make money onlineFor you to have a website up and operationally ready for all to see, you need to know what to do with creating everything and how to get the traffic to your site. My brother has a business site the way mine use to be registering zero after 17 years exposure on the Internet. After 8 years, my company site was also a big fat zero until I switched it over to this hosting package I’m with now and in 4 months is down around 14 million for rank so far. My test site which is only 10 months old is around 9 million. It takes time when you see about accomplishing your ranking without paying for marketing but it works, and the traffic will come when you have the knowledge.

Hi! Very informative article and website in general. I’m happy to see that websites like yours exist to help people make money online. Because there are a lot of scams out there and misleading information about making money online. Thank you for sharing your knowledge with us and for guiding us to the right path.


    February 20, 2016 at 4:17 pm

    After all the years I have been on the Internet, As I had mentioned it was not until this last year to come across an opportunity that could help so many. With the ealier system you needed to be into creating websites by code which very few people could do.

    Most of the companies saying how easy it is to use their systems were praying on people just for the money. Now that I found a true opportunity, I tested it first to make sure I made money before I would recommend the hosting package to anybody else.

    Now if anyone is interested they can take the free trial or just use the free website indefinatly and know they are not going to be scammed.

Hi, there.

Instructive article. People will always try and go against the flow trying to make money without a website. The truth is, it’s still possible, but it remains a lot harder than if you have a fully functional website.

The questions you asked at the beginning of the post are an excellent plan to flow if someone is thinking about creating a solid foundation and a money making presence.

Flash and Dreamweaver aren’t necessary like they used to be, you can create a website in a couple of seconds, but be willing put many hours and weeks of work to make money.


    February 19, 2016 at 10:49 pm

    That is so true that even though we no longer have to be programmers and know how to create websites with code as in the past, we still need to work and put the time into creating and getting the traffic that all online business require.

    There is money to be made when you know what to do and you’re willing to make it happen.


March 21, 2016 at 8:06 pm

Interesting. I have always wanted to make money money online, but it’s hard to know where to start. Everywhere I turned its about making money from Traffic sites, revenue share businesses, and things that are hard to get your head around without loads of research.

You have laid everything out really clearly and give a great place to start! Thanks!.

    Hi Mike and glad I could be of some help. Wealthy Affiliate and the community have helped countless thousands of people to create and have an online business.

    After I had transferred and redesigned my website to see how much better it has been performing, I decided to help out others by passing on the information to let others know. With this extra information about having a proper place to build a business, people can work towards having an online presence here or they can choose to keep searching for something else.

    Those that are ready now I can see about helping and there will always be those that still need more time. Some people will never be ready and others will spend years looking for something that may not exist.

Wealthy affiliate is really great! Awesome lessons an community. All I’m trying to say is that every thing you wrote here is 100 % true. Everyone who wants to make some money on the side or even work from home should give it a go. Great article.
Nice of you to pay it forward and spread awareness about earning possibilities.
All best in the future.

    I have been doing online marketing for over ten years now and just over one year with wealthy Affiliate. I never recommended any of the other hosting providers before as they really had very little to offer and where just a place to host your website. The community was more concerned about upselling you their products regardless if they worked or not.

    It was not until I discovered Wealthy Affiliate and after doing it for a full year basically that I decided to recommend to others what they have to offer. I know there are many people looking to get online to earn an income and the packages offered here will help anyone to accomplish that.


June 14, 2016 at 12:18 pm

Pretty interesting stuff, I like how you mentioned that you used to use Flash and Dreamweaver, I started with Flash, but never got into creating websites because I found out that Flash websites are not so good for search engine optimization. Still, awesome tips here, and I’m sure readers will love the value!


    June 14, 2016 at 8:58 pm

    Glad you found the article interesting and flash websites as you mentioned did not rank very well if the whole site was in flash. I use to use flash for supplemental additions in Dreamweaver myself.

    By having the website built with the Dreamweaver platform you were able to rank better and you could still incorporate flash into the site.


July 4, 2016 at 3:48 pm

Very informative article. You’ve given me a lot to think about. I used to use Dreamweaver back in the day. What a pain in the butt that was. Anything easier than that would be a blessing. I really need help with SEO. Getting ranked is one of the hardest things to do these days. Thanks for giving me so much to think about.

    When you consider how fast things can change with the Internet and the way people search and get on the Web, a lot of the older providers do not offer much other than a place to park your site. Some will have decent website builders for you to see about making money online but offer no real ways of dealing with SEO.

    The new provider that I’m present with now for just over a year now offers all the same great package for getting a domain name, parking and hosting your site. They have a website builder for quickly and easily get your site up online. The best part is all the extras the other providers lack by having a full package you get all the additional tools to rank and deal with SEO and receive all the training and coaching you need to be successful.

    Being able to get an entire package for making money online can usually be extremely costly from other sites and most offer next to nothing as most people would venture to say they are a scam. Wealthy Affiliate fills the void with a lower cost option that delivers with a legitimate package that anyone can work into a successful online business.


July 26, 2016 at 2:38 pm

A couple years ago I tried the whole make money online thing but was not very successful at it until now. The problem back then was all the misinformation being circled around the internet. You just never know who is trying to scam you from who is sharing genuine information but I have done my research on the very same affiliate network you speak of and have found them to be of high standing.


    July 27, 2016 at 11:18 am

    You’re absolutely correct when you mention how there is so much misinformation floating around the Internet. There are a lot of places that output older and forgotten procedures that may have worked at one time and are no longer in effect as the Internet grows.

    The search engines like Google and the others make changes to how they operate and look at SEO from all the sites that have been created. If you do not keep up to date with the changes, then you’ll disappear into the obis.

    The great thing about Wealthy Affiliate is it is so much more than just a website builder and offers you the training on how to stay on top with all the latest methods for SEO.

Hi Travis,
Very informative review, really like the structure of your article and your style of writing is very easy to follow and understand. I think its important to emphasis to people than rather than looking for ways to make money online they should focus on creating a sustainable business online first. I think that is the challenge that many people find difficult but if they are aware that they need to work hard and invest in their website like a real business they will reap the rewards.

    What you say Manny is so true. For some unknown reason, most people understand a regular business takes time and money. They know companies take dedication and work but for some reason when it comes to the Internet, there is a major disconnect that online businesses need the same amount of work as well.

    The type of work and methods will obviously be a little different but never the less all businesses take work, so time and amount of money all play a part in one’s success even for an online presence.

I already start my quest to become an online marketer.
However, I havent bought my domain yet. Do you think it will hinder me from getting success?

How long do you get your investment back?
Is this online business thing powerful enough to let me quit my job?



    January 7, 2017 at 12:03 pm

    You can build a business on a subdomain name, but it will take longer to rank and get the traffic compared to having purchased a domain name.

    How much extra time is not something anyone could say as it depends on what niche you have chosen and how many pages/posts you create with the type of SEO and Marketing you do for your site.

    You can create an income to replace your full-time job, but again that is dependent on how much you need to make per month and how long it takes you to make the amount of money in question.

    Also, know that you can transfer your site from one domain name to another very easily and the transfer will cost nothing other than the purchase price for the domain name.
