I have no products to sell, can I still create an online business that is profitable?
I never have or had my own product since I ventured online. What I like about this business the most is that you don’t need to have your own products to make money.
But There are a few things that you will need such as…
- Something you are passionate about or a hobby
- A willingness to work on something for may be a few months without getting paid
- Enough of drive and determination to succeed
- Enough time and hard work
Did you know that there are currently 3 billion people online everyday that makes purchases online? That is a whole lot of people and they are spending money everyday. If you could only cash in on a small percentage of these people you would be doing very good.
Affiliate marketing started back in 1995 and to this day it is still one of the most favorite ways of too many marketers to make money online.
How does this work?
- You’d have to sign up with big name stores like Amazon, Ebay, Walmart and Target and many others such as Groupons, best buy and more .
- You start building your website out and creating product reviews.
- When you join an affiliate program you are given a code called an affiliate link. This is the link that you use to get paid.
- When doing a review of a product put your affiliate link at the bottom of the review saying for more information check…. and you’ll place the link that walmart Amazon gave you, if someone click on it and buy you get commission.
That is short explanation, for a more in depth answer check out my article on Affiliate marketing
But Before you can do any of the stuff listed , here is what you are going to need…
- You’ll need A website
- You’ll need The right training
- You’ll need to pick a niche you have a passion for to get started with
After you have all of this you have the green light to go. You will be on your way to getting your own online business started at last.
Is it possible to make money with my FREE starter membership?
This question is so popular, I get asked this almost everyday and here is my answer. I’ve seen several people make money from the starter membership it just takes them three times longer then it would if they were a premium member. Yes it is possible if you like to take your time, but why would you want it to take longer then it would normally do?
If you can afford it, you should definitely try out the premium membership. It is highly discounted at only $19 for your first month when you sign up through me as a bonus. And you can trim it down even further with special promotions such as black Fridays.
Is there any limitations on the Free starter membership after my first 7 days?
No, You can use your starter membership for as long as you like. There is no time limit. but You will lose access to live chat, your blogs, and the discussions area after the 7 days period unless you upgrade by that time. You will also not be able to comment on any blogs or discussions.
Everything else will stay active and you can keep building out your website and you can still access all the training and tools that you started out with.
Again, your first 7 days are a premium member days and you have access to everything.
How long does it take to make money from my website?
This is the most popular and the hardest question to answer because everyone is different. I can tell you though I started making money in about 4 months. It was little but I took it as it was a learning period, the key to success is to have your mind in a locked mode never to give up, you will make it. I know that for sure.
There is other factors to consider as well
- How determined and serious you are
- How many hours a day are you going to devote
- How passionate you are about your niche
- How much research you are doing before you write about something
- Are you hanging out with a negative crowed
- How popular your niche is
- How quickly you pick new skills up
- How much previous knowledge you have of Internet marketing beforehand
- Are you easily irritated
Here is someone who made money in 2 days from start. you have to take a decision buddy, this is reality not fiction, only those who take actions are the winners, so choose tonight which side would you like to be in.
I will never forgive you if you don’t take action before you sleep tonight. You will change everything upside down. I will make sure you succeed, I,m here for one thing and that is helping you. Look at these people from every corner of this earth, some of them may not even have a penny in their pockets or even to eat that night, but they are trying so hard with whatever pennies they might have put together to start a better life.
Take a look below at a guy who made his first sale only 8 days from start
Some will pick this stuff up quick and they are making money within their first week. There are others that take longer to learn how everything works. So how long will it take you to start making money online? I will tell you 1 thing, your very first sale is always the best.
When I made my first sale it felt like I hit the biggest jackpot in Vegas, that’s how excited I was even though I was making thousands weekly with my gift shops before hurricane Sandy took it all. But this an online money, something I wanted to succeed with so bad because of the freedom it gives, you could be anywhere and live anywhere on earth and make money, and all you need is your laptop or even a smart phone, funny huh?
Do I Need at least some or any sales experience?
No, you do not! I am not a salesman myself even though I had 2 gift shops for a dozen years, People used to walk in, pick up what they need and I just ring it. The training at Wealthy Affiliate really does work and it will show you how to market your products to make them an easy sell.
It really doesn’t matter what age, race, gender, or whatever you are. You can learn this if you can follow simple step by step training lessons. I will also be there to help you out every step of the way.
Is a website a must have to make money online?
No, it is possible to make money from using other websites out there. If you are good at writing, you could be a free lance writer and get paid to write articles for websites, magazines and blogs, but the long term benefits come from having a website that you can use to create a long term money making business online and its the only time where you can establish your own brand. If you can establish a good brand for yourself, you are an instant millionaire.
When you have your own website it is something that you own. It’s like your own virtual piece of real estate which will continue to rise in value, the more you add to it the higher becomes the price. So my question to you is… why wouldn’t you want to have a website?
I definitely recommend that everyone has their own website. get yours here lets meet in the side me and thousands others are waiting for you buddy.
I tries to sign up for Wealthy Affiliate, but it says I already have an account even though I never had one
This phenomena has been happening quite a bit in the last few months and I wanted to add this here so that everyone knows what’s the scoop here.
I believe there are 2 reasons why this is happening
- You either are on the same IP address as another WA member, this could happen if you are using someone else’s Wi-Fi or computer.
- Or You are trying to sign up to WA using the same computer as another WA member and the system is picking it up as them already having an account.
If neither of these reasons are the case with why you can’t sign up then you should send Kyle or Carson- owner of WA- an email informing them of the problem and they will definitely hook you up with your own account. Use the email address below
How much money can I make with affiliate marketing?
The potential for how much money you can make is unlimited. You can have multiple streams of income coming in at all times . Did you know that consumers in the USA alone spent over 3 billion dollars online in 2014? That is a lot of money and it is only going to escalate in 2015.
The potential for making lots of money online is unlimited. It all depends on you and how truthful and respectful and loyal you are to your wishes, dreams, future and destiny.
There is also a few other factors to consider such as…
- The niche you are involved in
- The way you promote your products and services
- The percentage of commission you earn from the affiliate program you signed up for
- How much attention you pay to and the ability to comprehend new information
- how much skills of public relation you have or can you improve it when dealing with people even online. you need to have excellent customer service.
- The amount of creativity you’ll have when taken outside the box
If you can manage such skills to perfection and answer these questions truthfully to yourself and your answers comes positive, then you are in to make lots of money online.
Does the training at Wealthy Affiliate really work and can you truly make money Afterwards?
Yes the training works and it is awesome. If you can follow simple directions and are able to complete tasks. You will be on your way to having a very profitable online business.
Even though I really don’t like to resort to such methods of showing bank accounts and deposit numbers, but for your sake this time here is what I earned in one weekend at Wealthy Affiliate.
I earned that day 15 credits of 78 dollars each credit so the math is $15X $78 = $1170
Plus I credit of $114. so $1170 + $114 = $1284 for one weekend. not bad at all for someone who’s hardly there for 2 years, but this number is not a constant one, there is days when it’s less or more.
The WA training can also be used in any niche that you can possibly think of. I just have decided to go with the WA boot camp training and I think it’s the best training SOMEONE MAY EVER GO THROUGH!
If you are willing to take this seriously and treat it like a real business you could see your inbox filling up with money every day. The main thing you want to do is to stay focused on helping other people and point them into the right direction.
If you help people out and give them what they are searching for they will buy from you AND MANY TIMES.
How do I get paid and how often?
If you mean Wealthy Affiliate you get paid at the end of each month by either Paypal, a check or electronic bank deposit into your bank account. For other programs it will vary depending on what affiliate program you decide to join.
The 3 most commons ways for you to get paid are
- Direct Deposit to your bank account
- A check through mail
Most affiliate programs pay out every 2 weeks and others only pay out once a month. For more details on exactly when you will be paid, check out the affiliate program that you signed up for.
The first 2 options listed above are a free service. If you have decided on a paper check you will be charged a fee for this service. I would suggest you choose either PayPal if you can or direct deposit into your bank account, these are the two best ways for payments.
Is this Affilite thing legit?
Affiliate marketing has been around for almost since 1995 and it’s still the best way to make money on the online. With all the scams that are out there it sadly makes anything you do online look like a scam, honest people don’t know where to turn anymore.
I have fell for many scams that promise you untold riches in a few days with little to no work involved and the hardest 2 are the ones I mentioned above. There is no such thing out there and the purpose of this website is to help you avoid getting ripped off by these scumbags. I tell you the real truth in my reviews.
