I guess that heading really hit the mark, but before you decide to jump ship, now you are here wouldn’t it be wise to hang around for a while and maybe, just maybe I have some great news for you.
How to make money online for free is a very popular keyword phrase as you can see by the below image.
On average 10221 people key that same keyword phrase into Google, not to mention the different variations of the same keyword, so we are probably talking about hundreds of thousands of people searching for ways to make money online for free.
When I first started looking online I went down the same path and you want to know something, I couldn’t find a single place where I could earn a decent living from for free. There was always a money element somewhere along the way.
I’m sure you have heard the saying “You get nothing in this world for free”
That may be correct in most cases, but if you look hard enough you are certain to find something that you can try for free. That is what happened to me and the best decision I ever made, and if you read this article to the end then I will give you an opportunity that won’t cost you a dime.
I guess the main goal with the internet that we are all looking for is to be independent and financially secure, right?
We are all looking for the day when we can tell our boss where to go. A dream for many but a reality for some!
OK, let’s cut the waffle and get right into it.
Had Enough of the “BS” and Looking for a New Direction to become Financially Secure?
OK, so I guess you have been down the same road as many, including myself, where you are sat all day clicking on ads for measly points that you turn into cash at some point, maybe 1-2 months down the road for 20 bucks, or filling in surveys only to be told time and time again that you didn’t qualify. Does that sound familiar?
If you want to carry on with those sites then be my guest and this isn’t for you, but if you want to turn your life around and learn something that you can truly benefit from. A passive income, that generates cash 24/7/365, where you can work anywhere, when you want and at your own pace, because all you need is an internet connection, then please read on.
If you haven’t already guessed, I am talking about Affiliate Marketing…
If you are unsure of just what this is all about then you could take a look at a review that I wrote some time ago, or you can listen to the shortened version right here.
By 2020 the affiliate marketing industry is forecast to be worth around a 12 billion dollar industry and no better time than the present to get involved with.
First off, the business model of affiliate marketing is very simple and straightforward.
Vendor — Affiliate Marketer — Customer
That’s it, you promote vendor products to the customer and when you make a sale you are paid by way of commissions.
Ok, so that is the simplistic version, but there is a little more to it than that.
The beauty of this business model is…
You don’t hold any stocks, in other words, you don’t need a warehouse, meaning that you don’t have to shell out money for any products.
You don’t need to manage stocks because that is all taken care of for you, even the order management, shipping, returns and aftersales.
There are no overheads other than what you normally pay for because all you need is an internet connection and device.
There are no restrictions on where you can run this business either. Not like having to drive into work to check paperwork or ensure the orders are placed correctly. Nothing like that! You could be travelling around the world!
Anybody can do this, trust me I am
Seriously that is not beyond the realms because many people I know are doing just that, travelling and working. All you need is an internet connection. I am not because I have family commitments but a few years back and yes that would be me too.
Google is where it is all happening, where millions of people are searching for everything you could possibly think of.
A few facts about Google, in this present day.
There are around 69,000 searches every single second of the day where people are searching for things like…
- How to plumb in a toilet
- How to make money online for free
- Best Samsung tv for under $1000
- How to wire a plug
- How to make a chicken curry
- How to train a puppy dog
- Best affiliate marketing training
That’s approximately 6 billion (6,000,000,000) searches keyed into Google every single day and with nearly 3.9 billion (and climbing) with access to the internet, then really all Google is, is a massive shop, just like Amazon but a lot bigger!
How Does this Affiliate Marketing Business Model Work?
The job of an affiliate marketer is to help and offer solutions to a particular problem or issue with what people are looking for. There are no hard sales tactics because as you probably know they just don’t work.
Of course, we can’t help all the millions of people who are typing in nearly 6 billion searches every day can we, but we can help a portion of those.
If you looked at what those people were searching for and broke the 6 billion search terms into groups or categories then we could find something that you would be interested in, right? Of course, we could!
Step 1 – Choose an Interest, what you might call a Niche
This could be a hobby and something you are passionate about, like Golf, Fishing, Tennis, Camping, Dog Training. It could be anything that relates to what people are searching for.
A very popular keyword is one that you typed into Google to get to this post. “How to make money online” or something similar.
This is part of the “Make Money Online ” NICHE!
So let’s use this as our example, right!
Step 2 – Build Your Website
Now we have decided on what our Niche is going to be about, it is time to create our Website, and I’m not going to bang on too much about this because nowadays this is very straightforward and this will be explained in great detail if you decided to become a free member.
Suffice to say, that nowadays due to advancement in technology everything is pretty straightforward with no background knowledge required in HTML, Java, Graphic designing, etc. Those days are well and truly in the past!
In fact, I have seen a website created in less than 1 minute, which I’m not able to do. It might take me 5 minutes tops!
Step 3 – Attract Visitors…How to get your Website in front of all those people searching on Google. You know the millions typing in close to 6 billion search phrases each and every day.
We have our Niche and have created our website. Now its time to get our website in front of those people.
A really massive crowd where people are just looking for solutions to their questions.
Now we have our website created we have to now start writing content or “blog posts” which you will probably know them as.
“I was never a writer before I got involved with this business and the last letter I wrote was maybe over 5 years ago, but since I started this business I have found that I love writing which as totally surprised me.” If you don’t try, then you will never know, will you?
What do I write about?
Well your niche, what else!
OK, as I mentioned, we will be using “How to make money online” as our example.
So let’s type this into the Jaaxy Keyword Tool like so!
As you can see in the above image, right at the top of a list we have our main keyword which is “how to make money online” and immediately below this, we have another 5 different keywords that relate to the same thing. There are many more, we just couldn’t fit them all on the screen!
Can you see next to the keywords there are columns? Well pay particular attention to,
Avg and Traffic
Avg – The average number of people typing that exact phrase into Google over a monthly period.
Traffic – Is the number of subscribers that we could attract if we managed to get our “blog post” on page 1 of Google. (don’t worry, not as difficult as you may think)
Those 6 Keywords that are listed…
We could potentially use as the title of our “blog posts”, so straight off the bat, we have 6 posts that we could write and quite possibly get access to around 200,000 people or prospective subscribers.
Why we use a Keyword Research Tool like Jaaxy
We would use a keyword tool like Jaaxy to find keywords that relate to our Niche, which have a certain amount of Traffic and are not too competitive.
We would use those keywords as the title of our “blog posts” and over time our website will grow because all we will be doing is writing content and adding them to our website.
Each “blog post” attracts a certain amount of traffic and all we are doing is grabbing a small portion of that 6 billion, and the more posts you add to your website the more people you attract which will eventually turn into subscribers.
How do I find ideas to write my blog posts about?
You would do your research on the Internet and in Google.
Type in your chosen “keyword” either in brackets or without and check what other affiliates are writing about. There are literally thousands of areas you could exploit.
A little secret I will disclose…Type your niche or keyword into the Google search engine, and check the 1st 3 pages of the search results. All your research can be done there!
But, why would I want to use or copy other peoples stuff?
Well, you don’t copy other peoples work, because it has to be different and original otherwise Google will penalise you. All you are doing is getting ideas, that’s all!
You could even be using the same keyword phrase and by writing more original content over time Google could rank you higher.
How do I Make Money?
Well before you have written and published your great content that is going to help your future subscribers, you will need to offer a solution to the reader’s quest.
This is where you would offer a product which would go on your blog post that you are helping out your readers with.
How do I do that?
As you know this article is about affiliate marketing and therefore part of this process is offering a product to your reader as part of the solution. Sort of like the “icing on the cake”.
If your niche was in the “Make Money Online” niche like I am in then you could offer a training platform that you was part of as your solution.
There are literally thousands of Affiliate Programs that you can join for free, and all you would do is find one or two, or maybe several. Sign up to the affiliate program and promote a product or products.
Just type “your niche” + affiliate program into Google and instantly displayed there will be tons of programs you could join.
Anything you could think of there surely will be an affiliate program that you could use!
Every sale you make you will get a commission, and that’s pretty much it.
Are you ready to take that first major step to a better secure life?
I said I had something for you if you lasted the course.
If you hadn’t already noticed from the main image at the top of this review we are talking about Wealthy Affiliate, which is a training platform which has been around for well over a decade and has seen over 1.4 million members go through the training, and in 2017 alone helped over 220,000 members create their first websites.
Received in 193 countries worldwide. That’s almost every country on the entire planet.
This is 100% free to join where there will be no credit card details asked for and there are no Upsells to worry about either.
How I joined and became a member
I joined as a free member and took advantage of the discounted $19 (but, you don’t have to) for the first month as a premium member and I will tell you why.
You see (for me) to fully evaluate the platform I wanted everything available so that I could check out what was on offer, which gave me 5 weeks to do my research. If after 5 weeks I didn’t like what I saw and it wasn’t for me, then I was just going to call it a day, and all I’d have lost would have been $19.
You could, of course, stay as a free member and still make money, as many members are currently doing, but if you were serious about all this then why wouldn’t you upgrade to premium?
But, check it out for free like everybody does, and remember you will have me on your side to guide you through the whole process!
If it’s not for you then you can just call it a day or you could stay as a FREE member forever if that is what you want, that is not a problem.
If you are looking for how to make money online for free, there is no better training platform out there that comes close to Wealthy Affiliate.
The best decision I made so why not take it for a spin and see for yourself, and remember this, I would not promote anything I wasn’t 100% certain about, and with Wealthy Affiliate, I am 120+% certain!
