My Favorite Way to Make Money Online in 2018


Today, I’ll be talking about how I make money online (and I’ll reveal exactly how you can replicate the process).

I won’t be sugar-coating anything in this guide. In fact, what I’m about to share with you may be disappointing – but here goes:

This method requires a lot of patience and hard work. That’s because it’s 100% ethical. Anyone who claims you can make money online overnight with no previous experience is scamming you. Simple as that.

Let’s get started!

My Method Revealed

I won’t beat around the bush and hide my method till the very end, nor will I ask you to sign up for an email list before I reveal it to you. I genuinely want to help you understand exactly how I (and so many others) make money online. So, without further ado, here’s what I do:

I build helpful websites that provide answers to any questions a visitor may have.

Wait! But doesn’t it take some knowledge of web development and coding in order to build a website?

You may be surprised, but the answer is no.

I knew almost nothing about coding when I first got started (and I still don’t). That’s because there are some awesome website-building software products out there such as WordPress, which make it possible to build extremely intricate and unique websites without touching a single line of code.

WordPress is so flexible that you could even build your own social network like Facebook without knowing any code!

So, with that out of the way, how do I make money from my websites?

Here’s how:

I write useful articles, and put ads or affiliate links (learn what these are) on them. When someone clicks an ad, I get paid a little bit. When someone clicks an affiliate link, it takes them to a product or service that I recommended, and if they purchase or sign up for it, I’ll get paid!

If this is confusing, that’s fine! I was so confused about all this back when I first started. The good news is that I have a surprise waiting for you at the end. Actually, I’ll tell you what it is right now: it’s the exact training I went through to learn how to make money online (except it’s been freshly updated for 2018).

But, moving on. How do I get people to come to my websites?

Easy! I write very detailed posts which fully answer a specific question. For example, let’s say I have a website about gardening. I might write a post about how to keep pesky insects out of your potato bed. I’d include lots of pictures and plenty of text walking you through all the different ways to keep insects off your potato plants. By the end, you’d have some very actionable advice and be able to implement what you learned, and hopefully save your potatoes from the pests.

When search engines like Google see that an article is very detailed and fully answers a certain question, they’ll likely rank that article high in the search results page for any relevant keywords.

So, if someone searched in Google “how to keep insects off potatoes”, my article would be one of the first results, and possibly get the click.

Now, while simply writing a detailed article may be enough to rank highly in the search results, there are a lot more nuances to getting an article to rank high in Google and other search engines. In fact, there’s something called Search Engine Optimization (or SEO for short), which deals with getting your website to rank well on Google and other search engines. The program that I joined to learn how to make money online has tons of easy-to-understand training on this, and of course, it’s been updated for 2018.

So, once you have a ton of visitors on your website, how much can you expect to make?

I hate to say this, but it depends on so many factors. A rough estimate, however, is about 1-2 cents per visitor. With some work, it’s possible to get this number higher, even to 5+ cents/visitor.

Let’s crunch some numbers…

If you get 1,000 visitors/day to your website (very achievable after a year or so) and your earnings per visitor is 4 cents, that’s $40 per day, or $1,200 per month!

To reach this level will take a lot of work and time (by this I mean about 1-2 hours/day for six months to a year). HOWEVER, it will take WAY longer than this if you just learn on your own. To reach these numbers in a reasonable timeframe, you will need to be set up for success right from the start, with a clear path ahead.

That’s exactly what the program I learned on (which I’ve mentioned a couple times above) does for you. The program, Wealthy Affiliate, has a very detailed course which walks you through exactly how to build a website and earn money from it. No stone is left unturned. Nothing is left to the imagination. It’s all laid out clearly, allowing you to take each task step-by-step.

In addition to the comprehensive training, Wealthy Affiliate provides a wide range of tools to give you the maximum chance of success.

First, you get access to the Wealthy Affiliate community, made up of over 1 million members. This community is like none other. The members there are all eager to help out and see you succeed. Everyone roots for each other and celebrates each others’ successes. It really is an awesome community made up of like-minded internet entrepreneurs, all eager to succeed and help others succeed.

Wealthy Affiliate overview

I’d venture to say it’s impossible NOT to succeed as a member of Wealthy Affiliate, unless you don’t put in the work. You’re provided with every tool you need, but it’s up to you to put in the work.

A training program like Wealthy Affiliate should be rather expensive, like hundreds or thousands of dollars per month. Think about it: you get the full package – including access to a community where millionaires hang out.

Believe it or not, Wealthy Affiliate’s premium membership only costs $49/month, and $19 for your first month.

But that’s for the premium membership where you have full access to EVERYTHING.

Wealthy Affiliate also offers a 100% free membership, which includes all the basic features, and full access to the community for 7 days.

Here’s a chart showing free vs. premium:

As you can see, there’s a lot of value in the free membership alone. But the premium membership is where the real ‘meat’ is, and if you want to maximize your chance of success, going premium would be the better option.

Whatever the case, it is 100% free to join and get access to the basic features. No credit card required.

If you’ve read this far, congratulations! I want to offer an exclusive bonus if you join through me. Not only will you get all the cool features Wealthy Affiliate provides, you’ll also receive 4 guides that I only wish I had access to when I first started. These guides will give you that extra jump-start, and hopefully have a long-term affect on your online business.
