Making money online is all the buzz these days. It gives people a chance to make an income on the side, create a fulltime living from the internet and get to do it all from the comfort of their own homes. It also leads to lifestyle freedom, being able to travel to exotic destinations, take your business with you, and have the time and the money to do this kind of travelling on a regular basis. Let's learn to earn cash online and set up a successful internet enterprise. It's actually not all that hard, but does take some time, determination and patience.
Obviously You Will Need Some Training
First things first, though, you need to come to a decision about what kind of online business you will do before you can seek out some quality training to get you started on the golden pathway of internet business success.
Once you have reached a decision on what it is you would like to do, then it’s a matter of researching some good training that will show you the ropes and guide you every step of the way until you actually have a solid online business up and running and headed in the right direction.
What Kind Of Online Business Should You Do?
There are plenty of opportunities, and you can read a post I wrote on a few of them here.
What I would like to introduce you to is the idea of setting up an affiliate marketing business. Affiliate marketing is pretty easy to do, as all you are really doing is promoting some else’s product or products. You don’t have to buy and sell or ship anything out, merely point people in the direction of where they can buy it and earn a commission when a sale is made.
The beauty is you can work from anywhere at any time of the day or night, set your own hours and enjoy lifestyle freedom.
How To Earn While You Learn Online
I trained with a company called Wealthy Affiliate, and as you can probably guess from their name, they specialise in affiliate marketing training. The best part is, they let you join for free to start with so you can test it all out and see if it’s for you before making a financial commitment to pay for all their training.
The other great thing is, even when you do decide to upgrade so you can complete all the training on offer, you can simply pay by the month and then cancel your membership once you’ve learnt what you need to learn.
I remain a member there even though I finished the training a long time ago, because the value the community of members there brings to my business is priceless, but the option is yours. There’s no set time period that you have to remain a member. If you have the time and dedication to rip through the training quickly, you might cover it all in a 2 month period.
The real winner for me with the Wealthy Affiliate learning system is the ability to “earn while you learn”.
You see, the way they’ve designed their training, you actually start setting up and running your online business step-by-step as you go through the lessons. And the lessons are so easy to follow and understand. Kyle, one of the owners of Wealthy Affiliate, does all the lessons and they are a combination of both text and video. The videos run you through everything. These videos are pre-recorded, so you can learn at your own pace at any time.
How’s all that sound so far?
Pretty good, right?
Even as a free Starter Member on Wealthy Affiliate you get to do the first 10 training lessons at no charge. You also have the privilege of creating and hosting two affiliate (money making) websites on their platform at no cost. You can keep these sites hosted there for years if you wish. When you upgrade to a paid Premium Membership you are allowed to host up to 50 websites (you’ll never need anything like that many to make money, really just one or two).

I wanted to comment on how I enjoyed reading this article. You really covered in detail earning money online and the concept of affiliate marketing.
I have been involved in earning money online for a few years. What I found was that doing it on my own was really a hit and miss kind of thing. I made some money, but I realized earlier this year that what really was holding me back was the need for proper training. That’s the reason why I joined Wealthy Affiliate and your description of Wealthy Affiliate is very accurate.
Great site by the way, thanks so much for sharing.
Thanks for your great comments. yes it’s hard to have a direction with affiliate marketing without some sort of training and guidance. Wealthy Affiliate certainly delivers in that area and more. With training everything starts to make sense and it gives you a much clearer plan and direction.
