How To Make Money With Wealthy Affiliate (Step By Step)
Are you tired of the quick rich schemes?
Are you tired of the superstar marketers who never tell you how exactly they make money online?
Or you are just tired of wasting your time for cents or strategies that never work.
I was tired as well and ready to give up some years ago.
Then, I joined Wealthy Affiliate and it was the first strategy that worked for me. I still apply it and work just fine.
Do not get me wrong. There are many ways to make money online. But I can show you only the one that gives me the best results.
What I Do To Make Money Online
I will show you something to get your attention here. On the image below, you can see how a $2k payday looks like.
It does not mean that I make daily that amount of money. I do not guarantee any results as well. I just want to show you the potential of this simple process you will learn below.
Next, it’s up to you to follow the steps and use the resources of this guide.
Here are the steps you can learn on Wealthy Affiliate:
- Find a niche
- Build a website
- Get traffic
- Make Money
We can break these four steps into smaller achievable tasks which you can see below. By completing these tasks, they will help you to take action and learn faster.
How to find your niche
A niche is just an audience or a group of people. For example, the people who want to lose weight is a group of people.
There are two simple questions you can make to yourself to choose your niche:
Are you interested in learning about a specific topic?
Are there other people who are interested in the same topic?
The weight loss and the make money online niche are some obvious ones that many people want to get into them.
Below you can find some other board niche ideas:
- Any sport
- Play an instrument
- Avoid a health issue
- Stop smoking
- Any hobby
- Online business
- Social media
- and more
Many marketers help people in more than one niches. So, do not overcomplicate this step. You can always pick up another niche later. Just choose one and go to the next step.
Task: Choose your niche
Build A Website
I will not get into technical details here. You can find anywhere on the internet how you can create a website (I recommend following the training of Wealthy Affiliate).
So, I do not think that I help you by adding information you can find elsewhere.
I have built all my sites on Wealthy Affiliate. This is what you need to do if you want to follow this guide.
On the next step, we will use another tool of Wealthy Affiliate.
- Create a free account on Wealthy Affiliate
- Complete the free courses and build your first website
On this step, you can understand how and why my method works.
The best source of traffic for your website is the free organic traffic from Google. You must focus on Google before doing anything else.
I follow a simple three-step process to get traffic from Google:
1. Find low competition keywords
2. Create helpful content for my readers
3. Share my content on social media and get engagement
This is a simple three-step formula that works in every niche.
Here is how I break down my steps:
Find low competition keywords:
If you have completed the steps above, you have a Wealthy Affiliate account and a website.
Also, you have access to Jaaxy, the keyword tool of Wealthy Affiliate.
I use Jaaxy to find low competition keywords in any niche. You just open the tool and search for a keyword relevant to your niche.
On this example, I will type “make money with Wealthy Affiliate” which is the keyword of this article. The metrics of the tools are explained when you create your account.
But in this example, I focus on the Avg and QSR.
Avg: The averages searches per month of a keyword.
QSR: The number of the competing websites ranked on Google for the exact keyword
To pick up low competition keywords, I want low QSR (under 300) and some traffic (over 50). For a new site, the QSR must be under 100. Also, the keyword must make sense.
My focus is on finding the lowest possible competition and not going for the high traffic keywords. When you have created a new website, you cannot get ranked for competitive keywords.
If you go for them, you will not get any traffic at all because you will not go to the first page of Google.
Instead of that, you can go for many low competition keywords. If you get ranked on the first page for 20 keywords and get 5 visitors per day on each one which is a realistic number, you get 100 visitors per day or 3000 visitors per month.
Create the content:
If you want to get any results, you must create helpful content. If you choose the keyword “make money with wealthy affiliate”, you must create an article that shows to your readers how to achieve that.
You will not get ranked for every keyword you target but as your site gets older, you will receive more traffic and better results.
It makes sense that you must include the keyword in your content. This is the SEO part of this business and it’s the easy part if you understand why it works. You can find it in the training of Wealthy Affiliate.
On this post, I show you the process of making money online. If you know the process and you are willing to apply it, you will get rankings, traffic, and sales.
Share your content and get engagement:
I talk about social media marketing and comments. The better your content is, the more shares and comments you will receive.
You can improve your writing skills through time but you need to create social media accounts on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Google Plus to share your posts when you publish them.
If you can spend more time on social media, it would be fine but the focus must be on the content creation.
The comments help with the rankings and they build trust with your audience.
You can exchange comments with other members of Wealthy Affiliate until start getting them naturally.
- Find 5 low competition keywords on Jaaxy
- Learn how to optimize your site for search engines (from the training of Wealthy Affiliate)
- Write your first article and publish it
- Share your article on social media
When you have traffic, you can start earning money. There are many ways to achieve that with a site:
- Affiliate marketing
- Google AdSense
- Create your own product
- Sponsored posts
- and more
The easiest way to get started is by adding some affiliate links for relevant products in your niche. You can join a few affiliate programs and find these products.
Make sure you recommend products or services that add value to your site and do not look only for the profit. You will earn more money in the long run if your readers trust your suggestions.
If you have read and completed all the tasks until now, you have a plan to make money online.
The next step is to keep finding low competition keywords (there are unlimited keywords), create helpful content and recommend useful products when they are relevant to your content.
Can you imagine your website in one year from now if you publish 2-3 posts per week and share them on social media?
In the second year you will be able to get ranked for more competitive keywords and in the third year, you will get ranked for any keyword you want.
When you get targeted traffic, you can earn money. The more traffic you get, the more sales and commissions you will earn.
As I promised, the process is simple but it takes patience and determination. Below is what you need to do for the next months.
- Complete all the tasks above
- Find ten low competition keywords
- Create 2-3 articles per week and share them
- Recommend relevant products in your articles
- Repeat the last three tasks and make money!
