So you want to be making money from the internet? No problem… we have a program that will work for you as it has done for thousands of other people across the world. Their circumstances are all different – some want to retire early, others need an income in to older age. Others simply want to earn money from home in a way that allows them to be with their family or travel abroad. People’s needs are all different, yet the solution to it is easy and needn’t cost you a penny… or a dime.
So let’s cut the chase… here’s how it’s done.
Here’s how to make money from the internet
OK… Here’s the big reveal. If you want to earn you living from the internet then the easiest and most rewarding method is what’s known as ‘affiliate marketing’. If you’re already scratching your head, fear not. All will be explained.
Affiliate marketing, put simply, is the method of promoting other companys’ products on your own website and then taking a commission on any sale made. Already I’m sensing the nerves! Don’t worry, you are only referring the potential buyer to the seller’s website… you are not selling anything on your own website! The process is easy… you get visitors to your website who find you through searching on the internet. They then visit your site and read your product recommendations, reviews, advice, etc. Having read your content, you then refer them to the seller’s website where a sale can be made.
“But hang on” I hear you say. “If the sale is made on the seller’s website, how do I earn a commission?”. A good question with a very simple answer. Every referral you make to the seller website is tracked using special links to their site that are unique to you. The seller can even know if a potential buyer has returned several days later, thereby ensuring you still get your commission.
So it’s a process of pushing your website’s traffic to other sites and getting them excited enough to make that purchase when you do so. The more purchases they make, the more you earn. And commissions can typically be anything from 6% to 50% of a sale – no joke, it really can be as much as that. In fact, it some cases the commission can be a full 100% of the sale price. How? Well in these circumstances, the ongoing value of that customer, say for a subscription for example, is of more value to the seller than the initial sale, so the commission is greater. Take a look at this affiliate program dashboard to demonstrate what I mean:
Booking.com is just one affiliate program. There are literally millions of different affiliate programs offered by companies in just about every sector, industry and niche out there, all ready for you to sign up. And our training will show you how to do it and where to find them.
Sounds easy? It is. Now we’ll consider the nuts and bolts of how we build our free websites and get our affiliate links to earn that money. Here’s another screenshot showing how affiliate product referrals convert into generated income over time.
What does it involve?
So we’ve talked about the need for a website or websites, and the need for affiliate programs and links to put on them. But how do you start going about learning to build and create your website? How do you know what products or services to sell? Whose products and services can I sell? How do I get traffic to my website? These are all questions we all asked when we first started on our affiliate marketing career. The answer to all of these and many other questions is all in one place… introducing the Wealthy Affiliate university and website creation program.
