Want a Laptop Lifestyle feature image - a guy at a laptop

Most people are looking for a way to have the laptop lifestyle and make money online via the internet.  But what exactly is the laptop lifestyle, and how do you get it?  Is it as easy as those gurus make it sound online? How long does it take? Is it really possible to make money from your laptop?

The answer is you can definitely make money from your laptop!!

We will be going through everything you need to know and, more importantly how you can actually achieve a laptop lifestyle where you can work wherever you like, as long as you have Wi-Fi, of course.

What Do I Mean by a Laptop Lifestyle?

The biggest problem you have when you start searching for ways to make money online is the amount of people who tell Laptop Lifestyle - Work from Anywhereyou:

  • It is easy to make money online
  • You don’t actually have to do anything, it is done for you
  • You can earn money from a beach whilst the system does the work for you

I am not one of those people, you are going to have to put in a lot of effort and put in the time to be able to have a laptop lifestyle.

To me, a laptop lifestyle means that you can earn money from anywhere.  You are not tied down to one place or a job where you have to clock in every day and do something that you do not enjoy.

If you are willing to put the effort in, you can start to have what is called a “passive income” and that is what a laptop lifestyle is all about.  It is such a fantastic feeling when you wake up in the morning, load up your emails and find that you earned money overnight.

You can pop to a coffee shop and do a little work.  You can lie on a beach, do a little work and see that you are able to earn money.

But the emphasis on any way to make money online is that you need to be able to put the time and effort in to be able to enjoy the benefit of working anywhere in the world and earn money even though you might not be active at that point a sale is made.

Passive income and a laptop lifestyle come hand in hand, and as long as you have done the groundwork and built up your online business you can be a fantastic point where your business will be making money at any point, regardless of whether you are in front of the laptop or not.

In fact, I know a few people who are travelling the world whilst using the same method we are going to be talking about and are making money whilst exploring the world.

Done right, the laptop lifestyle will lead to you earning a passive income and being able to give up your day job and doing something based on something that you love and by helping other people.

Put in the hard work now, build the foundations and then later on you can find that you are not having to work so hard to make money – but you can relax and enjoy the fruits of your labour.

Why Affiliate Marketing is the Answer

Online, you will find there are plenty of different ways for you to make money online.  Some will be scams; some will notWhy Affiliate Marketing is the Answer end up being able to actually lead to a laptop lifestyle and then there are some that are a fantastic idea.

It still amazes me that a few years ago, when I was looking for an opportunity online that I had never heard of affiliate marketing before than point.

Yet, it is now our top recommended business opportunity online because it is one of the simplest premises in the world.  You can get started with little investment and it also means you get to choose a subject that you already love.

MLM requires to invest heavily at the start and has such a low success rate.  Binary options requires a level of playing the stock markets and other guru-type programs end up costing you thousands with nothing to show for it at the end.

But with Affiliate Marketing and the right training, you will be learning how to utilise free traffic methods to promote products and services in a niche that you know something about.  You will help people learn about that niche and that will lead to you being able to make money online.

Affiliate Marketing doesn’t require any special skills other than the ability to learn and then to put what you learn into action.

Yes, it requires hard work, but nothing is given in this life for free.  Anyone who states that you are able to earn money by doing nothing is not your friend.

Affiliate Marketing can lead to a point where you are earning money on autopilot, but not without putting in the groundwork.  Not without laying down the foundation.  It also requires upkeep too.

I am not saying this route is easy, but it is simple.  If you are ready to learn how to build your own passive income business online, and earn the right to live a laptop lifestyle then we can help you get started with the 4 steps below

Our 4 Simple Steps to a Laptop Lifestyle

We can help you start on your route to a laptop lifestyle, but we need a few commitments from you… You will need to sign up to the below commitments:

  • You are Willing to Learn
  • You are Willing to Take Action
  • You are Willing to Not Give Up!

Affiliate Marketing takes patience above all things, and the main reason why people fail in affiliate marketing is the fact that they give up.  Earning money from Affiliate Marketing could happen within a month, a few months or a year.  This all depends on how much time you are able to put into it.  It took me 6 months, but as I had a full-time job and a family to work around with my online business it was actually quite a good achievement considering the niche I chose.  But the main thing you need to understand is the main factors with success is time and effort.  We will show you a proven step-by-step guide to building an affiliate marketing business, but you are the one that is going to need to take action from it.

Before we get into the 4 steps, we want to ensure you fully understand how affiliate marketing works.  That way you know!

How Does Affiliate Marketing Work?

Ever heard of Amazon?  I would be extremely surprised if you haven’t.  The world’s largest marketplace has an affiliate program.  This is the example we are going to use to show you how you are going to make money online.  There are thousands of affiliate programs, but Amazon is by far the best starting point for an affiliate marketer just starting out.

How Does Affiliate Marketing Work Flow Diagram

We are also going to use coffee machines, as our subject or niche too.

Affiliate Marketing is where you are able to promote products or services related to a niche of your choice and earn a commission from any sales that are made via your affiliate link.

Sounds weird, right?  Let’s use the examples to make it simpler to understand.

I am a potential customer who is looking for the best coffee machine for my needs.  That means I need to do a bit of research into what is the best coffee machine for me.  So, I go to Google and type in a search or keyword.  The image below shows the results that came up, below the ads:

a screenshot of a google search for best coffee machine to help explain the premise

I land on a blog called expertreviews and they have written a blog post about the best coffee machines for use at home.

They have also written some great hints and tips to help narrow down which is the best coffee machine, whether I want a manual espresso machine, a bean to cup machine, a pod machine or a filter coffee machine.

Probably a few things I hadn’t really given much thought to regards the right machine for me.

But what this blog also includes is affiliate links to Amazon:

an example of a blogger promoting an affiliate offer

If I was ready to buy the above manual espresso coffee machine, then all I needed to do was click buy now and this would take me to the exact Amazon page I needed to be able to complete the transaction.

Think of the benefits for this website having affiliate links.  They don’t need to handle payments, as Amazon is doing that.

  • They don’t need to worry about being online when the reader is on the page.
  • All they needed to do was provide the really insightful post in the first place.

But here is the added benefit – That website will receive a commission every time someone lands on this page and follows one of their affiliate links to Amazon.

Amazon’s commission rate is lower than others, but as it is a trusted platform people will buy from them without a second thought increasing your conversions.

That coffee machine I was looking at was £549 in the black Friday sale.  If I did buy that, the expert reviews website owner would earn 4%.  Which is £21.96.

I know you might not think that is a lot, but there is no limit on how many people could click that link and that is just one product.

10 customers, it becomes £219.60.  100 customers, it becomes £2,196.00.

Plus, like we said as you expand you can include other affiliate programs with much higher commission rates, your income can increase a lot.

But to earn money through affiliate marketing, you have to start somewhere.  This is where these 4 steps come in.

Choose a Niche (Your Hobby)

What is your affiliate marketing business going to be based on.  This is your first big decision, but it might not be as difficultexample of a hobby - lady knitting

as you might think.  This is because we are going to suggest you pick something that you already know something about.  You already enjoy talking about this subject and you will enjoy helping other people and engaging with other people about.  That is why we suggest you start with choosing one of your hobbies.

If we go back to why people fail, it is because they give up too early.  But that also comes down to them picking a niche based on them thinking it is a profitable niche.

Let me tell you, that any niche can be profitable.  But the key difference between choosing something you love compared to a subject you don’t know – you get bored of the one you don’t know; you don’t know what to write about and your content dries up – guess what?

No content, no sales!

That is why we say, pick a hobby and then narrow it down to a niche.  If you want the best chance to succeed, you need to target a narrow section of the market and not start too broad.

That is because of the amount of competition out there, if you just chose dogs as a niche, then that is way too broad and you are not identifying and targeting a specific target audience.

Now, if we went with dogs but targeted the healthy dog nutrition niche.  That is a specific target audience, with products and services you can also target too.

So, if I was looking for healthy dog food then hitting your website all about dog nutrition would tell me you know what youA picture of two dogs - niche idea

are talking about, as you are providing me insightful information about how to keep my dog healthy and the best food to be feeding my dog and I am more inclined to follow your affiliate links and buy stuff that earns you money.

If you start with a hobby, you are onto a great start as you will have some knowledge that you can share with others and are more interested in learning more to expand your knowledge and in turn, helping others too.

Does that make sense?  I hope it does and if you want help narrowing down your niche, drop a note in the comments section and I will be more than happy to help you.

This can be used for any subject, but just make sure you narrow it down as best you can.

Key Points:

  • Narrow down your subject to a niche
  • Identify a target audience
  • Identify their needs
  • How can you help that target audience in reference to your niche?

Build a Website

You need a foundation to your affiliate marketing business and that is a website.  If you are truly in this for the long haul where you are going to be earning big money through affiliate marketing, you need a website. build a website - website imageThere are some that state you don’t need a website; you can promote through social media.  However, people are starting to not trust social media as much as they used to, and some social media platforms do not really like affiliate links.  So, you might start promoting on social media, but find that you cannot post your links. Hence, you cannot make money.

The other argument is that if you send people blindly to affiliate links, it is proven not to always work.  This is because you have missed the important link – the helping part.

Consider, if I already knew what to buy, I would go straight to the retailer and buy it.  The reason affiliate marketing is successful, is because people want to research and learn more before making a purchasing decision.  That is the fundamental part of online shopping.  They want help, not blind affiliate links.

By having a website, you can create a web where you are taking people from social media to your website where they can learn and then buy through your affiliate links when they are ready.  That is where the customer purchase lifecycle comes in, as you can create content for different steps of the lifecycle and capture customers that you can take through all the steps until they are ready to make a purchase.

That is why you need a website.  It is yours and you can build a brand around it that will earn you money for years to come.

Building a website these days is relatively easy, but our top recommendation for Affiliate Marketing is WordPress.  It is really easy to get your head around and is preferred by the search engines which is a huge bonus when it comes to the next stage of getting traffic.

If you feel like you are ready to build a website, then we recommend the SiteRubix hosting.

SiteRubix is brought to you by the guys behind Wealthy Affiliate.  Wealthy Affiliate is a complete training program for affiliate marketers.  It is the platform we started with a few years ago, and we have not looked back.  We will be going into more detail later, but their WordPress hosting is second to none.  If you want to build a free website with SiteRubix, and get access to free training from Wealthy Affiliate – Then use the free tool below to see if your chosen website name is available.

Gain an Audience (Traffic)

Now, if you have been following the steps you will have your very own WordPress website online and gained access to free An image of an audience - gain an audience for your website

training within Wealthy Affiliate where you will be learning how affiliate marketing works and how to gain an audience…

If you want to earn money, you need to work on this step first.  Making money does not come until you start getting traffic through to your website.

Wealthy Affiliate and our recommendation is you target free methods of gaining traffic.  The main one we will be talking you through is called Search Engine Optimisation or SEO.

It sounds complicated, but it basically means creating content and posting it on your website, and then telling the search engines about it so they rank it in their search results.

That blog post earlier from expert reviews would have done the same.

By creating helpful content that helps the readers, and then using a free SEO plugin on your website (already provided by Wealthy Affiliate) you can then get your blog post up to the top of the search results too against your target keyword.

It all sounds overly complicated, but in essence it isn’t.  I am writing this blog post now, I will then publish to my website (already done by the time you are reading it) and then I will follow the few steps given to me by the guys at Wealthy Affiliate that tells the search engines “Hey, I have written a blog post that I think is helpful… can you rank it in your search engines please?”

It then appears for people to find.  You will follow the exact same steps.

You will learn about keyword research, creating content, SEO and engaging the audience to gain traffic.

As your website is new, it will take a bit of time for the search engines to take notice.  But as long as you are creating helpful content that has identified a target audience and has helped answer their questions, then you are onto a winning formula.

When you first start noticing people are visiting your website, it is a fantastic feeling.  Once you start seeing that traffic, it is time to step it up and start adding affiliate links

Earn Money!

Notice how we have left this to the last step.  You need to understand that this is not a get-rich-quick scheme.  That thean image of coins - earn money focus needs to be on helping people and not making money.

Helping People Makes you Money, focusing on the Money Doesn’t!

If you had a website on day one that was filled with affiliate links and not much helpful content, do you think Google would take notice?

I know I wouldn’t as a reader.  That is how clever the search engines have become; they read your content and see how helpful it is.  The methods that worked ten years ago, will not work today.

Search Engines want to find the best answers to questions and put them at the top of the search results.  If you provide a better answer then an established brand, then you can easily get to the top of the search results.  But the key thing is that Quality is really important.

Your content needs to help, be detailed and have a point.  As soon as you start selling, then you are not helping and that will result in lower rankings.

I know you can do this, but your focus needs to be on helping!!

How Long Will It Take to Make Money?

OK, this is the question that always comes up.  There are loads of factors including:

  • Which niche you choose
  • How much time can you invest each week?
  • How much effort you put in – both learning and doing
  • How much do you want that laptop lifestyle?

I go back to my point earlier, the main reason why affiliate marketers fail is because they walk away too soon.

No one can really tell you how long it will take.  There are members of Wealthy Affiliate who earned money within a month or two.  There are others that didn’t earn anything for a year but are then earning a 4-figure salary every month from affiliate marketing.

The main thing you need to consider is that as long as you follow the training we recommend, put in the time and effort that you can and don’t give up – you will earn money from affiliate marketing!

The only reason you won’t, is because you walk away before you do.

To put it into context, I had a full-time job and a family to work around.  I was only able to work after my son and wife had gone to bed.  I would grab an hour each evening.  One night I would go through a lesson in Wealthy Affiliate and the next night I would put into action what I had learned the night before.  I would write a blog post the next evening, and then get back to learning.  It took me 6 months to earn my first commission.  But I see so many people walk away before that point, and I feel so sorry for them because they feel like they have failed.  But they didn’t, they gave up.  There is a huge difference.

On the other end of the scale, Wealthy Affiliate has super affiliates who are earning huge sums every month.  But they will tell you the same thing that I am telling you.  You need to put the effort in, if you want to achieve what they have.

Jerry worked in a restaurant every day all day, but he worked every spare second he could to escape that existence – he is now a Super Affiliate, and he is well on his way of becoming super successful with his training courses, etc.  A special young man.  But he will tell you to “Hustle”.  I am sure he needs to trademark the hashtag, hustle.  But he will always tell you that you need to work hard to be able to play hard.

If you want this, are you going to go and get it?

Where Can I Get Help?

The important thing to know is that you do not need to feel like you are on your own.  You will not be doing this on yourWhere to Get Help to Get Started - a girl helping a boy up from falling own, in the slightest.  I remember when I first got started and joined Wealthy Affiliate.  I thought I might feel like I was on my own.  Nope, that was simply not the case.  I joined a fantastic network of people that has grown to over 1.4 million members.  The network is always active with people online ready to help beginners start their journey.  You also get access to the platform owners, Kyle & Carson.  Kyle was the one who helped me narrow down my first niche, and you will always see them active in the community.

The one thing you will take away from their training is that helping people is the core attribute to success – They live to this mentality, by helping people.

You will not find a better platform to get started.  I used to describe it as a training platform, but that hardly does it justice.  It offers all the training, tools and support you will need to become a successful affiliate marketer.  You will have access to support at any point from their easy to use dashboard.

But here is something else you will get if you decide to join Wealthy Affiliate and start your journey towards achieving a laptop lifestyle… You will get my personal guidance through starting your affiliate marketing business.  Any questions, you will be able to access me directly through Wealthy Affiliate.  If I don’t know the answer, I will know someone who will, and I will help you get started!!

Wealthy Affiliate is a pay-it-forward platform which means everyone is here to help you.

The only decision you have to make is, are you ready to get started?

Are You Ready to Get Started?

That, I will leave up to you.  Affiliate Marketing is by far the best option for someone looking to make money online, it is beginner friendly with training like Wealthy Affiliate’s.

Want help choosing a niche, or anything to do with WordPress or anything at all you will get help and support within Wealthy Affiliate.

I will just leave you with this, if you truly want a way to earn money online, leave the day job behind and live a laptop lifestyle like in all those flashy videos online then affiliate marketing can help you achieve that.  But don’t lose sight of the fact that it requires hard work to achieve that lifestyle.

You will need to work hard around your current job to achieve this, but guess what?

Any website you land on that says you can earn money overnight is lying to you.  They are a scam and only after your money.

Affiliate Marketing is a genuine route to earning money online.  It is a proven.   We are making money from affiliate marketing online.  But it all starts with working hard to get to that point.

If you are still reading this, then I know you are someone who can make this work for you!!

I am guessing that as you are a stay at home parent, you are having to rely on only 1 income and are looking for ways to supplement that income to make life a little more comfortable.  That is the situation we were in and instead of going down the normal routes of filling in online surveys for a couple of pence a time or selling stuff on eBay, which only lasts while you have stuff to sell, we went an entirely different route and that is the route we will be sharing with you today.

Affiliate Blogger Pro Review: Irrelevant & Outdated?

Affiliate Blogger Pro_ Irrelevant & Outdated_

Affiliate Blogger Pro launched in 2009, but has it stood the test of time?  Is it still relevant in today’s world?  We will answer all of your questions in our Affiliate Blogger Pro Review.

The Affiliate Blogger Pro course launched by Rosalind Gardner in 2009 used to be cutting edge and it definitely used to help people make money online, but that is the key point it used to.  We wanted to know if it still could.

(As we write this, the course is currently not open when you visit their website.  But it was supposed to have opened again in June 2019.  But we are now in September?)

Star Trek Merchandise for Sale – To Boldly Go & Make Money Online

star trek merchandise for sale

There is a ton of Star Trek merchandise out there and I am sure there is going to be more to come with a new series on the way and Paramount and CBS settling their deals.  But did you know that you could be making money as you build up your collection?

If you are anything like me, you love Star Trek.  I went to Destination Star Trek last year and it was great to engage with the people that were there, and we all shared a similar interest.

But you need a huge budget if you were to buy everything you wanted, but then again I am into Star Trek and I know an online business model that would allow any Star Trek fan to enjoy it and help others and make some money online too.

Turn Your Love for Star Trek into a Money-Making Opportunity

Look, I know you were looking to find some Star Trek merchandise for sale, but I am offering you something that is quiteStar Trek Merchandise exciting and will allow you to build up your collection whilst making money online so hopefully you can forgive me for not having any merchandise to sell?

Think of it this way, the business model I am talking about is one where you are going to be able to fully engage into the passion you love (Star Trek).  Help others and make money, so in my eyes it is a no-brainer.

The business model I am talking about is affiliate marketing.

You might not have heard of it or think it sounds complicated, but in actually fact it is relatively simple but will allow you to really get engaged in any element of Star Trek and make money online.

Let me break down what affiliate marketing is first and then I will show you how Star Trek comes into it.

What is Affiliate Marketing?

Any subject or niche can use the affiliate marketing model to make money, as when people are shopping online, they are normally doing research before they buy.  Where do they go to do this research?  They visit google and search for stuff related to what they know.  You searched Star Trek Merchandise for Sale.

Instead of seeing this blog, you could have visited another blog and they would probably have been using affiliate marketing.  If you had followed their recommendation on that blog, they would have received a commission as an affiliate.

Affiliate Marketing allows you to sign up with an affiliate program and then be able to promote any product on their marketplace and earn money if anyone goes and buys something.

How Does Affiliate Marketing Work?

Star Trek has an Affiliate Program

Amazon has an affiliate program, so does the Star Trek website.  I also found that Eaglemoss that do the model ships also Eagle Moss Affiliate Programhave an affiliate program.

If you signed up with Amazon or Star Trek and created a blog that was all about an element of Star Trek, as people come and visit your blog and engage more with what you are writing about and products that you are reviewing they will start to follow your recommendations and go and visit Amazon and Star Trek to buy this merchandise.  Anytime they do that, they will make you money.

How Star Trek Merchandise Fits into Affiliate Marketing

That’s right, you could be starting an online business all about Star Trek, which you love and earning money which you could spend on buying more merchandise that you will review and then sell to others too.

In fact, when you get really established you could even receive free stuff to review as they will want your audience to buy it.

There are endless possibilities for you to earn money online through affiliate marketing and what better way to do it than with a passion you have like Star Trek.

I know it can be an expensive passion to have, especially when you are a collector.  But there is every real chance you could earn a full-time income from affiliate marketing and also be able to visit all of the different conventions around the world and do it in style.

If you are not really interested in pursuing this, then I wish you “Live Long & Prosper” and good luck with finding Star Trek merchandise for you to buy.

But for those few who want to learn a little more, we will go through how you can learn affiliate marketing the correct way and make money online.

Ideas for a Star Trek Themed Affiliate Marketing Website

The key to being successful with affiliate marketing is to start with a niche and not start too broad.  Whilst Star Trek is a niche, when you start exploring all the different aspects of it you actually find how huge it is.

The merchandise alone is vast and there are a lot of different types too.  From collectibles, video games, clothing, cosplay, conventions, tv shows, films, board games, plush toys, etc.

I could go on, but when I visited Destination Star Trek and start to see the amount of merchandise and then start talking toAffiliate Ideas people about their costumes and where they got them from you find that there is a lot you could talk about and incorporate affiliate marketing.

The reason I say that is that people are always looking for help as to where to find stuff.  They also want to know what people think about it.

Take the uniforms for cosplay.  People want to know where to get the best-looking ones, and what are the sizes like.  Because most of them come up too small.

Some people will use social media for their searches, but a lot will check out Google and they could easily land on your website that is talking about all the different aspects and offering them help and advice as to where they can get what they are looking for and include an affiliate link.  You are helping out a fellow Trekkie and making money at the same time.

Another idea could be the board games, there were a few interesting ones at the convention last year and they seemed really interesting but as I could talk to the people about them I got a lot of information about how it all works.

You haven’t got that opportunity online, so they do a Google search and find a blog that talks them through all the rules, how it works, what you get in the box, etc. and learn from an affiliate marketer who knows their stuff and offers links to the best deals and makes money from offering that help.

The Eagle Moss Ship Collections are really popular.  I couldn’t believe the queues at the convention to buy the ships, then again I can because they were awesome.

The ideas are endless when it comes to Star Trek and with the new Picard Series coming out, you could even get affiliate sales on the wine Chateau Picard?

Affiliate Marketing is an Exciting Prospect to Make Money

Affiliate Marketing is not for everyone but collecting Star Trek merchandise does not come cheap.  If you were to create a website that talks about all the merchandise you have and can offer insights that others will find interesting and want to know more, then you have a very exciting prospect on your hands of earning more money to build up your collection and helping out other people who are interested in building up their collection too.

I loved looking at all the model ships at the convention last year, and to build up a collection I would definitely need a huge budget, but affiliate marketing can definitely help towards achieving just that.

Want to Learn More About Affiliate Marketing?

Look, I will be honest affiliate marketing is not a get-rich-quick scheme.  It will definitely take you time to build up a website and start earning money.  But if you can see the end goal and learn from the best, you will definitely be in a great position to take that opportunity when it comes.

We highly recommended a training platform that offers a fantastic step-by-step guide that takes someone who hasn’t got a clue about affiliate marketing or even how to build a website through every step needed to build a successful affiliate marketing business that can and will be profitable.  All you need to do is take your interest, which would be Star Trek and they will give you all the help and advice needed to turn that interest into a website that attracts an audience and will earn you money.

That training platform we recommend is Wealthy Affiliate.  It is the same training platform we use to make money online and their training is the best that we have seen on the web.

What Will You Learn in the WA Affiliate Bootcamp?

Wealthy Affiliate Affiliate Bootcamp

There are Seven phases or mini courses within the Affiliate Bootcamp:

  1. Getting Your Business Rolling
  2. Content, Keywords & Conversions
  3. Giving Your Site Social Value
  4. Get Visual, Get Aesthetic. Get a Brand Through Media
  5. Knowing Your Audience & Catapulting Your Referrals
  6. Bing, Yahoo & The Power of PPC
  7. How to Scale Successful PPC Campaigns

Each of these seven phases have 10 lessons, which includes text, video lessons and a number of tasks for you to complete.  This is not about rushing through the training and not taking the right stuff away.  This is written in a way that it will help anyone get the right information and walk them through the tasks that you can go at your own pace and, more importantly get those tasks done right.  I have even took the time to go through the lessons a couple of times before actually going and doing the tasks to ensure I am getting them right.

It is entirely written in a way that even someone who doesn’t have any technical knowledge on the computer could still go and succeed with this training.

The courses combine written training and video tutorials.  They have a number of tasks for you to complete.  But you also get to ask any questions at the bottom and some of the top helpers in that course will jump in and give you an instant response to be able to get you on the right track.

The support at Wealthy Affiliate is one of the biggest benefits of being a Wealthy Affiliate member, as the community is so active and full of people with the right knowledge to help you.  You might even get your question answered by one of the owners, Kyle and Carson as they are very active in the community and Kyle is the one who will be taking you through this course.

Phase 1 – Getting Your Business Rolling

Wealthy Affiliate Bootcamp - Getting Your Business RollingThis phase is all about getting your business up and running, but it also covers some great training on choosing a niche to target within the Make Money Online sector.  Often people do not identify who their target audience is or the niche they are going to target and then they wonder why they are not making any money.

This course will help you do both of those steps before building a website. The MMO sector is huge, and when you are just starting out you need to start very niche and target a small sector of the MMO world and know your target audience for you to be able to be successful.

Target the right audience with the right product and you are onto a winner with this course.

Once you have completed this step, you are then taken through exactly how to build a free website and have it up and running within a couple of minutes.

The next part of the phase is around keyword research and creating proper product reviews to help you fill your website with some content.

Phase 2 – Content, Keywords & Conversions

No website will succeed with content but making sure your content is presentable and readable whilst leveraging keywords is where this phase gets you up and running.  Creating content is easy, creating high-quality content that will help people requires some thought.

I recently went back through phase 2, as it is good to give yourself a reminder and go back to basics.  It all came flooding back as to how good this course is and that there were a few things that I had let lapse.  So I could get back on the right track.

It also covers the correct use and placement of affiliate links.  Getting this wrong can have a huge impact on how the search engines see your website.  Definitely a must for an affiliate marketer!

Phase 3 – Give Your Site Social Value

If you are not sure how much of an impact social media can have on your online business, then this phase will fill you in with all of the details.  From taking you through how to sign up with all of the social media accounts, to how social sharing has a massive positive impact on your business this phase is immense.

They will also cover elements on how to optimise your website for the search engines (this will help with generating traffic to your website).  They will also take you through how to use the free tools that Google gives you to make this easier.  These include Google Search Console & Google Analytics.

You will also be encouraged to keep writing more content and how to use the keyword research tool, Jaaxy that is provided with a Premium Membership at Wealthy Affiliate.

Phase 4 – Get Visual. Get Aesthetic. Get a Brand Through Media

People are visual in nature, so making sure your brand, your content and your website are appealing to the eye is what this phase is all about.  They will go through website design, how and where to use images to get your ideas over and video.  Video is so huge right now and more people are using it as high-speed internet is getting everywhere.

Phase 5 – Knowing Your Audience & Catapulting Your Referrals

Knowing your audience is an important step in getting conversions and this training will lead to you having a better understanding of your audience and gaining improved skills in respect to converting a visitor on your website to an invite and then onto a referral.

Phase 6 – Bing, Yahoo & The Power of PPC

Whilst Google holds most of the traffic, many people forget that Bing & Yahoo hold the other 30% and this training will take you through how to get your content onto their search engines.  Google is great at finding new content, we need to help Bing a little more.  Learn how to use their free tool – Bing Webmaster Tools and get your content to more people.

You will also be taken through how to utilise paid ads, commonly known as PPC to get more referrals.  Done right, this can lead to you making good money and this training will help you get it right.

Phase 7 – How to Scale Successful PPC Campaigns

Once you have found success with PPC, the natural next step is to scale it up to increase your earnings and this phase will take you through those steps needed to do just that.  But you need to scale it in a way that makes you money and not losing money and this training is a great way of understanding how to do this effectively.

How Much Money Can You Earn from It?

Wealthy Affiliate offers one of the most lucrative affiliate programs going.  It also helps that their platform is awesome and something that people want to promote.  Getting people to convert to a poor platform will not make you any money, but because Wealthy Affiliate has a proven success record with people doing both the Online Certification Course and the Affiliate Bootcamp, it makes sense that their affiliate program is as good as the platform itself.

As a Premium member of Wealthy Affiliate, you will earn $23.50 a month for each premium member you introduce and $175 per year, if they upgrade to annual.  That is $23.50 each month they stay a premium member on the monthly plan and $175 every year they stay an annual member.  There is also the opportunity for referrals to take advantage of the huge discount if they upgrade to premium within the first 7 days ($19 for the first month) and that will earn you $8 as a commission if they do.

The Starter member can still earn referral commissions if any of their referrals upgrades to a premium membership.  Although not as much, you can earn $11.75 per month and $87.50 for an annual upgrade and $4 for the first month.

Earn Revenue by Referring People to Wealthy Affiliate

From the image above you can that typically about 12% of people upgrade to premium from a starter membership, but some members have seen this go as high as 30%.

On average, you will earn $100+ from each premium member who signs up.  This is because you can earn money from their membership, but also from if they buy a website.  This will earn you a commission too.

Another great feature of the Wealthy Affiliate Affiliate program is the fact that the affiliate cookie is for life.  If someone clicks on your link but doesn’t sign up straight away and they come back later or even years later, you will still get the referral credit.

If they leave Wealthy Affiliate but decide to come back later, you will still get the referral credit.  It is a clever system they have put together.

You will find no better training platform or affiliate program than the one that Wealthy Affiliate has put together and if you are serious about making money online, this is the place to be.

It really sells itself; I have an annual membership which makes sense in the long run as it saves me over $229 a year and if you can get referrals coming in, it soon pays for itself.

They also have a great tool that can show you the earning potential, see the examples below of how much 5 referrals a day could earn you or even 50 a day and there are super affiliates who are achieving this:

Wealthy Affiliate Referral Earning PotentialSo, if you can get to the point of getting 5 referrals a day with 12% upgrading to premium and staying on for 4 months you could be earning $1,458 a month.  Push that up to 50 referrals a day, 12% upgrade rate and them staying a premium member for 6 months and that becomes $22,398 a month.

There is also a special bonus if you can get 300 premium referrals in a calendar year…

The Las Vegas Super Affiliate Conference

Las Vegas Super Affiliate Conference - Wealthy Affiliate

Any member of Wealthy Affiliate will tell you that this is their ultimate goal.  If you can introduce 300 premium referrals in a year, you will get flown out to Las Vegas (All expenses paid) to go and sit with Kyle, Carson (the owners) and other Super Affiliates.  They also give you the chance to go if you refer 100 premium members between September and December, hence the screenshot above shoing 100.

They will spend 3 days with you teaching you more tactics on how to get the best out of your business and learn from the other members.  You will also get a 2-hour meeting with Kyle & Carson where they will share their knowledge freely to help you take it to the next level.

If you want to know more about this awesome conference, check out this post about last year’s conference.

This is definitely one of my goals!!

Does it Bring Success? Yes, See Some of the Super Affiliates Below

Wealthy Affiliate Super Affiliate Conference 2019Look it takes hard work to be able to achieve this success, but that doesn’t mean it is not possible.  If you checked out the link above to learn about the Affiliate Conference in Las Vegas you will see that the members that are there, all started from scratch.  Look at the image above and you will see the members who have worked hard to achieve a full-time income from promoting Wealthy Affiliate.

They started with nothing and yet with the training that they went through, they achieved that success.

They are sitting with other super affiliates that all followed the same training – The Affiliate Bootcamp within Wealthy Affiliate.

Jerry Huang has really inspired me this last year.  By working really hard at his website for 2 years, he is now a Super Affiliate.  He spent every minute he had to escape the job he had as a plate cleaner in a restaurant and now I truly believe he will be a self-made millionaire before long.  Check out his success story here, where he is creating his own Affiliate Marketing course in Mandarin and is set to earn $120k+.  Very Inspiring.

Grace is another member who made it last year and is proof that hard work pays off.  Check out her profile and her success story here.  She has even created her own training to help other members reach Vegas…

Robert or Roope is a Super Affiliate who is travelling the world whilst being a super affiliate.

Benji’s Dad is another member who was at the Vegas Conference.

The list could go on, but these Super Affiliates will tell you the secret to their success is by working hard and following Kyle’s training.  In fact, I highly recommend you read this blog post by Roope.  It is a blog post about 99.9% of your competitors will fail.  He is talking about the way to succeed at anything is to not give up.  You will have stuff that doesn’t work out, but as long as you learn from it and ask for help you will find success, just like these guys.

It is definitely worth a read, click here to read it.

My goal is to be joining them soon and that is by following the Affiliate Bootcamp course.

Final Thoughts

What I have learned from these success stories is a consistent message of the fact that it will take time, determination and a lot of patience.  The MMO sector is a tough nut to crack, but with consistency of those 3 things and following the proven formula that Kyle and Carson have set out with their Affiliate Bootcamp training, you can and will see results.

But my advice is to set yourself a target of a year before you see any results.  It could happen before that point, but why set yourself up to fail.  But because of how competitive this niche is, you must expect it to take longer to see results.  You may earn a little throughout the year, but most start seeing the magic happen once they have been around a year.

Other niches could make you a consistent income and it could happen a lot sooner and if that sounds more appealing, you could go through the Online Certification Course at Wealthy Affiliate instead.  You could always come back and do the Affiliate Bootcamp later on when you are earning from your own niche site and thinking out expanding.

WE all start from somewhere and if you can stick with it, stay patient and continue to apply everything that you will learn from the Affiliate Bootcamp course, then you will be onto a successful path.  You will see just from going through some of the success stories, whether they are small successes or monetary successes, it is a great feeling when you do achieve them.

But one thing I will leave you with is the fact that the main reason why people do not make money online is because they give up too soon or they don’t have the right training.

With Wealthy Affiliate, you have the right training!!  All you need to do is invest in yourself and believe in yourself that you will make this work.  Whether you decide to go through the Affiliate Bootcamp or the Online Certification Course, you will succeed.  You will also have a fantastic community of people behind you to help you too.

Seriously, you will find no better training platform and community online!  If you want to learn more about Wealthy Affiliate, read our review here.  But if you are ready to sign up for free, just go HERE!  I will see you on the inside!
