In my search over the last 12 years, I came across many options on how to make money online, but none worked for me.

In the past, I joined a well-known Guru, but the training manual I bought was written in a coded language and I had to go back office into the programming side. I couldn’t understand most of the tasks and with no support it is needless to say, I did not get anywhere.

During November 2018 someone offered me an invitation to look at an option to become an online entrepreneur, designing my own website to earn an income.

My first thought, with the knowledge I have, it is impossible but when I saw I could join for free and there was as much support as I needed with no obligation, curiosity got the better of me and I joined.

Was I surprised to see WEALTHY AFFILIATE [WA] is offering exactly what I was looking for all these years. At last, I found the opportunity to prove to myself I can do it.

This is my opportunity to get Financial and Personal Freedom, with WA it can happen. Free membership for life, upgrade when you are ready and you can leave anytime you want. It sounded good and I jumped in and join.

I can do it!

Once on the inside, I soon became part of a community of 1.5 million WEALTHY AFFILIATE members, many very successful, ready to give encouragement, advice and support around the clock when needed.

I was welcomed by many in the community and the owners Kyle Loudon and Carson Lim from Canada gave me a warm welcome too. I felt at home.

Now what do I do with the Website?

What is an Affiliate Marketer?

As an Affiliate marketer you create a website in the niche [segment of the market] of your choice and become a salesperson from outside a company sitting at home selling their goods from your site.

Writing informative articles on the subject, giving interesting and helpful information, adding pictures with a built in link of goods they might need.

The visitor gets an opportunity to buy a product from the company via your link on your site, earning you a commission on the sale.

What is a Niche?

A Niche is a small profitable fragment in the marketplace identified by an entrepreneur, that is you.

Find your interest and passion, create a website to market specific needs and wants for your topic with interesting and helpful articles using Keywords in your contents.

On Google, there are list of most popular niches making the most money you can to select from. Make sure not to compete with the most popular sites, rather chose a unique fragment of a popular niche and create your own popularity.

What is a Keyword?

Image of network of Keywords


Keywords are the words and phrases people use when they Google search for information. Google robots then select, sort and file this information in its Keyword ‘library’. When typing a word or phrase in a search engine, it becomes the keywords for Google to find what is needed and present it to you. There are tools or apps which can supply popular keywords being used by searchers for your theme or niche.

It is therefore important to find the keywords popular to your topic. WEALTHY AFFILIATE [WA] has a tool to help to find the best keywords by the name of JAAXY. It assists in finding keywords for your niche.

Here is an example of the keyword researcher Jaaxy. Give it a try and find keywords needed! See how it works.



What is a Theme

Different types of themes for your website

A theme forms the framework or called a template, space to organise heading where the name of your site is at the top, your posts and all the advertisements with pictures and your links. Select one and with the push of a button the template was done and your frame or template was done. Now add your information to it and the website is on its way. Carson one of the two owners of WEALTHY AFFILIATE and his Technical Support team did the magic and WA is hosting the site too.

Hosting and Domain name.

Showing a network of traffic

A Website Host is a company that has the technology and service needed to list your website and domain name safe and secure in a memory bank to be found during any search and be seen on the Internet. The Hosting company keeps your URL which is your address where the search engines will find your site. A Hosting company connects the website to the world wide web for your visitors to find in a search.

The company requires ownership of the domain name of your site in order to host it.

To buy a name or known as a Domain or address for your website with a URL .com or .net or .org means paying for the space your website takes in cyberspace. That cost about $14 annually. You own that name for as long as it is renewed it every year.

This is where the hosting of your site comes in. You buy the website name [Domain name] from your hosting company. At WEALTHY AFFILIATE (WA) the names get bought from the Domain platform and WA does the hosting too.

There are many other hosting companies on the Internet that charge a small monthly fee to host after the domain is bought. At WA hosting is included in your membership fees, no extra cost.

What is a Blog Post

Word BLOG in blocks

A blog post is the interesting article that appears on your Website as info on the topic of your niche. The contents the website owner wants the visitors to see and read, also called a blog or a post or a blog post or an article, all the same thing. Write a new blog post at least once every week.

The more interesting honest information shared with your reader, the more traffic will visit your website and traffic means potential buyers which leads to commission in your bank account.

To build trust with your visitor is the key to success.


Writing a post or a blog or an article means having a conversation online with your visitor, explaining and talking to them as with a friend.

This is what you will be doing in the coffee shop. Maintaining your website by replying to comments, communicating with your Internet friends and writing new posts … as easy as that.

Where do I get my Information

  • You may have the Knowledge of Experience.

  • Own Opinion in reviews written on books, movies, politics, games, ect

  • Research on the Internet is also an option.

  • Writing the truth is essential, rather leave if in doubt.

  • There are thousands of different sites with different opinions and perspectives, choose to enhance your knowledge and then write your own version.

  • Make sure it is good quality truthful information. When writing information on a product, situation or ailment make sure of all the facts before publishing.

  • Everything you wrote has to be original and true.

The most important aspect is to win and keep the trust of your visitors.

You can do it!

What is an Affiliate Link.

Businesses offer an affiliate program to web owners promoting their products on the websites earning a commission from sales. The companies reward you for promoting their products.

Website owners get a coded link to put on the website in a promotional banner supplied by the company. Visitors buying from the link, register at the company to the website owner’s account and pay the commission into the specific web owner’s account.


Internet traffic is the flow of information via websites by searching for visitors. Popular sites with good content get more traffic. Using the correct keywords, writing honest helpful information, earn the trust of the visitors.

There are different ways to get traffic to your site and Wealthy Affiliate have training lessons teaching you. Some traffic is free and there are options on the Internet to pay for traffic.

It helps Google or other search engines to find your site, making it popular and it will appear on the first page of the search engine, resulting in more traffic which means more money, so this is your aim.
