Step 1 

Log into Wealthy Affiliate.

If you were going to have a business building houses, You would get some training on how to build houses. You would need to go to a hardware store and get some tools like hammers, saws, drills, air guns, compressors, and so forth.  And you would want to find a resource for building materials; such as lumber, concrete, glass, fasteners, etc. You would get some plans to build your houses from, and some people to help you build them.

Building an online business is no different. You need training, tools, resources, working plans, and people to help you build it. This is what Wealthy Affiliate provides for you. This website will enable you to create a website, research keywords, find a profitable niche, attract customers, and earn revenue online.

Step 2

Choose a Niche.

Have you ever been on vacation  and gone into some little store selling jewelry or antiques or homemade artifacts? And you think to yourself how it would be fun to own a little boutique business like that. Well, that is a niche market.

A niche is nothing more than a small segment of a broader market. Think of what you like to do in your spare time, or what special interests do you have, that you are passionate about. Do not worry about your niche being so small that you wouldn’t make any money at it. Think about if you had that little boutique store. Now imagine if, of the billions of people searching for stuff online, just 1% of them visited your store. That would be 10 million people coming through your door.

The most important thing about choosing a niche is, that it is something you enjoy doing. Wealthy Affiliate will show you how to market to those people that are interested in your niche through their tools like keyword research, and tutorials on targeting customers.

Step 3

Build a Website.

Don’t panic this isn’t as hard to do as it sounds. In fact, it took me only a matter of minutes to create this website and put it on the internet. The amazing thing about that is I’m a real novice when it comes to web pages and putting things on the internet.

Think of your website as a store like a regular brick and mortar store, only this one is a virtual store. This where your customers will come to look at the products you are selling. You create the ambiance of the store. How you want it to look and feel to your customer. How well they can navigate around your store and find the products they are looking for.  Through words and visuals, you are creating a shopping experience for your customer.

One more thing about a virtual store vs. a brick and mortar store. A virtual store is your website, that can be operated from your home, yet its doors open all around the world. That’s 3.4 billion potential customers right at your fingertips.

Step 4

Attracting Customers.

Before the days of all our modern technology if you wanted to start a business as the village carpenter or blacksmith all you needed to do was post a sign over your door notifying everyone what your business was and anyone who needed your services came to you.

As populations grew and businesses  became more diversified, store owners needed ways to let their customers know who they were and what services they offered. This is where marketing and advertising began. Using word of mouth, billboards, radio and television commercials, direct mailings and telemarketing, etc. Businesses competed to let you know about them and bring you to their store.

Although all of these methods can still be used to attract customers to your website store. By using the internet, we can reach people through the use of search engines like Google, Bing, and Yahoo. Also with the use of social media and email lists we can gain access to customers worldwide and pinpoint those interested in our products.

The beauty of Wealthy Affiliate is that there are both the tools and the training to take you step by step through these processes, that will generate traffic to your website.


Step 5

Earn Money Online.

Now that you have traffic coming into your store you will be able to promote your niche products or services to your customers. Through the use of pictures, blogs, and reviews you can create the customer confidence in you that you need to make the sale.

Another avenue you can use to promote products in your store is through the use of “affiliate programs” Most products you can think of are available through affiliate programs.

The great thing about these programs is that they allow you to market your niche product without you having to own or create the product. They take care of the billing, inventory, and shipping, then they pay you a commission for bringing them a customer.

There are many ways to market products to the customers you get to your site, and Wealthy Affiliate has plenty of people who share their tips, techniques, and training to help you capitalize on your traffic.


This is not a get rich quick scheme

If you are thinking that this will be a quick and easy way to make money online, it is not.

What it is, is an opportunity to learn how to build a business that you can manage from your laptop and in your timeframe.

It is an opportunity to build a business with a relatively low capital investment that will have a worldwide customer base.

It will take work.

It will require time and planning.

If you are not willing to invest the time and effort to build a business then I suggest that maybe you pass on this.

But if this does sound like what you’re looking for then go ahead and log into Wealthy Affiliate and begin your business.
