How about make money online
How about make money online
About six years back, I was having a drink with a very good friend, discussing about the poor economy and the dim future outlook of our career. We both knew that the job that we had will not be able to provide the income and lifestyle we wanted. That was when my friend suggested:
“How about make money online?”
And that was when our focus in our career life changed, we were working towards something with great potential and something that can belong to us.
How to start an online business with no money
The advantage of building an online business is that the entry barrier is low. The domain registration (the name of your website) and hosting service (which may include leasing of hard disk space, maintenance of hardware and software, provision of backup and security, and email boxes) do not really cost much. The cost of domain and hosting as a package starts at about $4 a month depending on which service provider and what package you choose.
But our the biggest barrier at that time was – we have no knowledge or idea how to start an online business.
After about two months of research, we still have no clue of how to create a website and how to kick-start an online business. In a forum where we subscribed in, we were introduced to Wealthy Affiliate, an online community where they help each other in their online business, online courses, live chats, live video classes, tools that we never knew existed, etc.
We thought it was another scam, but the good thing is that they offer a free membership where you can have UNLIMITED ACCESS for seven days. Hey, what have we got to loose? So we subscribe to the free membership and found that Wealthy Affiliate was legit and it did help us tremendously from creating websites from scratch, to earning money from our websites. And the community is amazingly helpful and supportive, you can get all your most complicated questions, as well as the stupidest ones, answered almost instantly.

How to make money from home
Making money online has great potential of making big bucks, and you can do it all in the comfort of your home. But make no mistake, having a successful online business is an uphill battle, it takes a lot of hard-work, patience and discipline.
Besides all the technicalities of how to create a website, how to gain traffic, how to improve Google ranking, etc; first you need to choose a niche/topic for your website. This niche has to be something you have passion about, something you have knowledge about. Do not choose a niche simply because you think you can make money from it easier. You will be surprised with the number of websites with very funny niches that are making tonnes of money.
Say you already have a niche, now what you have to do is think of how you can benefit people who have the same interest. This is the basic means of driving traffic to your website. You have to write with passion, having the mindset of providing important information, providing sought after solutions, helping people or offering support surrounding your niche. If you are able to do this, your visitors will have trust in you and will most probably revisit your website and refer/share your posts to their friends. That is when you start driving traffic.
When you start to have traffic, that is when you can choose how you want to make money online :
• affiliate marketing
• selling products
• selling e-products
• providing services
Of course there are more technicalities on building a successful website, some of the important ones are as follow :
• website development
• content writing
• search engine optimization
• social engagement
• video marketing
• email marketing
• keyword research
• driving traffic
• traffic analysis
Each of the topics above are too huge to squeeze into this post. You can search for information for all of the above, just be careful of unreliable information and scams. If you subscribe to Wealthy Affiliate, all the above information will be available and much more.
You will need to be hardworking, disciplined, persistent and patient. This money making method is not easy and doesn’t happen overnight.
