CHAPTER 1 : Earning money online
We have all fantasized of :
- earning handsome amount of money while having enough time to spend with our loved ones
- having enough money and time to do the stuff that we like
- being able to work anywhere in the world - in a luxurious resort by the sea, on a ski-mountain, or in a romantic city like Leon
- being our own boss
Well I have good and bad news for you. The bad news is more than 75% of online marketers earn less than $1000 or nothing at all. Research shows that those who fail to make it online were either lured into get-rich-quick schemes, having low quality-few pages websites or blogs, rely on cheap e-books, giving up too early, not getting the correct guide to building a profitable website, or fail to execute the strategies.
The good news is making money online is definitely do-able, what you need is to learn the correct techniques and execute them. It is not rocket science and that is why even teenagers can earn millions a year. The problem is that many adults think that making money online is not a real career or business. Well if you still don't think making money online can be a good career or business, ask
- Sean Belnick who is earning $38 million dollar when he was only 20 year-old
- Kieran O’Neill who sold his first website for $1.25 Million at the age of 19
- Juliette Brindak whose business is now worth over $19 Million and she is only 20 year-old
- Alexander Levin whose business is now worth over $56 Million at the age of 23
- Matt Mickiewicz whose business is now worth over $18 Million at the age of 24
- and so many more...
The online market is huge. More than 3 billion people are now using the Internet, according to the United Nations agency that oversees international communications. Every internet user is a potential customer, by capturing just a tiny bit of the market, we can be very well-off.

Earning money online is not about selling.
When I started my online business, I got the distributorship for a very good security product, made in USA, and I was able to sell it at a very affordable price.
I created a website and focused on promoting the product, setting the correct selling price, running promotions, advertising in the internet and social medias... I thought I would make a killing since I have a very good product, selling at a very affordable price. But after almost a year, I couldn't even sell one.
So what is the problem? Why couldn't I sell something that is really good, at a very affordable price. It didn't make sense to me.
The problem was I focused on selling. Earning money online is not about "selling".
If it's not about selling, how do we earn money online ?
To make it simple, earning money online is about getting enough traffic (visitors) to our website, gaining their trust and converting them from being visitors to customers. So the main game plan is :
DRIVING TRAFFIC & GAINING TRUST
Easy ? No, it's not. You need the proper know-how to accomplish that. We will be revealing that in the following chapters.

Nobody will buy anything if they do not trust in us. Let me give you a clear idea of how to build a profitable website by reverse engineering the process :

To gain traffic, we have to gain trust.
To gain trust, we have to provide reliable information or solutions to solve problems.
To provide reliable information or solutions, we need a website.
Creating a website is the easy part, even if you do not know how at this moment. I started when I have zero knowledge in creating a website. We will be guiding you on how to create your website in the next chapter.
The tricky part is to gain trust from your visitors. You want to win their trust when they first landed in your website, if you don't they will simply move on to another website and forget about yours. You want them to trust in what you are offering, you want them to stick around and learn more, click into other pages within your website, subscribe to be a member, and converting them from visitors to customers. You need to win their trust before any of that can happen.
You will need to drive enough traffic to your website in-order to have sufficient earnings. Driving traffic is another tricky part where Search Engine Optimization (SEO) comes into role. You want your website or posts to be ranked on the first page of Google, preferably within the top 5 results. Yes, we will show you the proper techniques and tricks to do so.
NB : Money is a by product of having a successful website. So don't focus on selling anything, focus only at driving traffic and gaining trust. Money will flow in naturally through the following income streams :
