'How to earn money blogging'

How I left my full time job to make a full time living online

When I started this, I had no idea what was going to happen. But listen to this.

I started my businesses and went through all the thoughts of ‘it’s not working’, ‘I’m seriously getting no traffic’ this went on for 4 months. Now just recently, it seems my business has just gained some traction. I just noticed in the last 3 days, I’m getting 10-20 visits throughout the day. This is free traffic, do you know what traffic like this is worth? Let alone buying your product.

Go ahead and continue on reading, half on my story and half on the product, this was just a serious update to show you how big this is and if you’re reading this, you can consider yourself fortunate as.

Hey, im Michael.

Now that you’re here, I would like to take this opportunity and show you how you could completely leave your full time job, to start a full time online business.

Before I started affiliate marketing, I was a roof tiling laborer.

My journey into the online world started on 19/7/2018.

Being a roof tiler, I was in a predicament where my job was going to get too difficult (for an old man like me) if I did not start and run my own business. 

So, before we continue, let me see if the next scenario fits in the same with you.

You may have the same issue as me, where your job is going to end or get to hard as in labor intensive as you begin to get older.

In this industry, its best to start early.

No matter what your situation is, if you’re going to take up this opportunity you still have to work. It’s not like that, in affiliate marketing you set up a business online that earns you money in the future without needing to work later.

Checkout this next picture, this is my actual website. 

As you can see with this picture, it’s a straight forward affiliate website business model.

With the menu, heading, and logo in place, the business is ready to start writing.

It’s that simple.

Please continue on reading to see how I started.

'About marketing jobs'

My Journey started

So, I bought a laptop, jumped on the Google search engine website and typed in ‘make money online’.

I remember the day like it was yesterday.

Most people have no idea how easy it is to start your own business, they have the wrong thinking as to what it is, they think you need to be fully qualified with tools and trucks and be totally set up,  you know what I mean?

I would have never believed that I could create a full time online business website more capable than a brick and mortar business.

I signed up

I signed up and got started with the training. It was basically straight away that I saw what I was doing, building an online affiliate business. There’s no doubt about it because it’s an online lucrative industry that has existed for a long time (a billion dollar – online industry).

Getting stuck straight in

Since joining I have referred over 100 people, 2 of which signed up to the upgraded Premium membership.

Before we get started, I should to mention that if you are on the Free Starter membership, your referrals and upgrade commissions pay a little bit less than the premium membership commissions.

Some examples

Let me show you just a few pieces to this puzzle, first off (Starter membership).

When you sign up and become a Free Starter member, everything is free to work with to build your profitable online business.

Kyle, the cofounder will show you step by step how to build your 2 free affiliate businesses.

Later on down the track you can move these sites to your own bought (paid for) URL domain name if you wish.

If you quit on the Free Starter member version, you have 6 months before your websites will expire

This training is literally showing you exactly what, when, and how to do it – exactly mirroring what he builds to the exact effects of your own.

Here are some examples of the depth involved:

Setting up your account 
Understanding how to make money
Writing down your financial goals
Choosing your direction
Choosing a niche 
Choosing your website 
Choosing your domain name
Choosing a website name
Choosing a design
Building your website

Does this sound like a lot to you? these are the baby steps to getting your online business model up and running.

The sheer scope of the Wealthy Affiliate training is like a pinpoint.

You are shown all of this step by step.

The reason why I didn’t mention everything is because there are over 120 lessons between both courses. And this isn’t even the live/pre recorded entrepreneur video trainings.

As a free starter member you can do the first 10 lessons of both training modules (Online Entrepreneurship & Affiliate Bootcamp).

Affiliate marketing is one of the most lucrative industries in the world

To me, making the most of the tools & training provided at Wealthy Affiliate means ‘going all the way’.

A good way to help get used to the way the platform works is by remembering – the premium membership goes with the Affiliate Bootcamp training module, and the Starter membership is combined with Online Entrepreneur Certification.

Affiliate Bootcamp

At the start of the Affiliate Bootcamp, you may see some resemblance to the Online Entrepreneur Certification. As you continue through, the lessons completely change and become more advanced.

As mentioned earlier, you can do the first 10 lessons of the Affiliate Bootcamp for free, but then you have to upgrade.

Remember, people only upgrade because it feels better, but to be honest, you can make a living just of the first ten lessons.

Premium revenue

As a premium member, you earn $23.50 monthly for every one of your referrals that upgrades to premium. This revenue is recurring monthly, as long as the member stays, you keep getting paid for them.

If your referrals upgrade to yearly membership, you receive $175.00, which is paid as a yearly recurring commission.

A conversion rate of 1 in every 8 people converts to the Premium upgrade. That’s over 12%.

Bootcamp training  

The Bootcamp training consists of 70 lessons, all of which are high pinpoint scope step by step training, on website and SEO buildup for your business.

Let me show you some actual lessons in order.

The following picture is the first 6 lessons of the Affiliate Bootcamp training, check it out:

As you can see in the picture, to the left is the side panel main menu. That menu navigates your whole site and business movement. You will use that side menu, to build your whole online business.

To navigate to the one on one training that you can see, simply click training in the left side panel, second from the top. Then you will have five options to choose from, and as you can see we have clicked on Affiliate Bootcamp.

As you can see by the two arrows, one is pointing to the ‘training’ in the left side menu, and the other arrow is pointing at the first course ‘Getting your business rolling’.

In the next picture, I have clicked on the first course ‘Getting Your Business Rolling’. This has opened up 10 lessons (ones blocked out of the picture).

You can see the lessons as they start: 

1. Getting started 
2. Choosing your direction
3. Building your website
4. A website look around
5. Activating your plugins
6. Getting your website ready for seo
7. Your initial framework of content 
8. Understanding the keyword research 
9. Creating thoughtful, insightful reviews 
10. The exciting journey has begun

As you can see by all the walk through video teaching lessons, your not paying for some cheap web hosting company. 

This training literally shows you how to become a professional affiliate marketer & website designer/builder. 

This is not HTML or CSS. This is something ongoing and expounding in results. 

Don’t let this be just a pipe dream that you simply click past and dont take action.

At Wealthy Affiliate, you can have 2 businesses online set up for free in under half an hour.

Immediately after your business is set up and you have content related to your niche, you can add affiliate links to earn commissions.

'About affiliate marketing programs'

If your in the make money online space (MMO), most likely you will be reviewing a lot of survey, MLM, and apps that pay you money, websites and just anything that claims to pay you your for your time.

After your website business has at least 100 posts, your site will be slowly maturing, gaining more authority in the search engines.

In this case, and with this new affiliate programs tab, you can create a spreadsheet, join a program, and save the program details in the spreadsheet.

Having these new affiliate programs at your disposal now is another great opportunity to make more money.
