Don’t Do Like I Did! Learn How To Make Money Online Successfully!

Don’t Do Like I Did! Learn How To Make Money Online Successfully!

Getting Started

I have been making money online since 2007, but I started researching Internet marketing back in 2004. I used to find the Internet very painful to use with the old-fashioned dial-up connection, however, when broadband became available in my area it changed everything! All of a sudden the Internet became usable and I could see the huge potential and the opportunities that the Internet has opened up, in other words, I saw the power of the Internet!

I was very keen to take advantage of the power of the Internet and I could see the life-changing effects that it could have in the world, in a good way. I started researching Internet marketing and how to make money online etc, I found all sorts of different programs that would promise to make me a millionaire almost overnight, however, we all know that this is not true. I know that there have been massive success stories online and people have made serious amounts of money but like every business, online or off-line we have to work at it.

Purchasing the Wrong Information

I purchased many different products trying to learn about how to make money online, many of these products were very poor products and I didn’t really learn much at all from. However, I did purchase some better products and over the months and years I started to learn things about making money online, however, it was a very long and expensive process, I really needed to have proper training, but as far as I was aware this was not available at the time. I literally spent thousands of pounds on buying products that didn’t work, I’m very thankful that this does not happen now, I am part of an Internet marketing membership site that you can see here.

I Started Making Money Online

It was 2007 when I finally had my first moneymaking website up and running, it took a lot of work and time to get to that place, I was finally making money. I was able to build this website up and make money through Google AdSense, affiliate marketing, the eBay partnership programme, allowing other people to sell products on my website and selling advertising space. So, in other words, I had different income streams coming in from just one website.

I Was Working Blind

The biggest problem I had was that I was working blind and I didn’t know what was true and what wasn’t true. I also had bright shiny object syndrome where I would buy a product and then potentially the next day find something that I thought was even better, this doesn’t work and please don’t do it.

I Have the Answer for You

Thankfully, I have the answer for you and that is to join a genuine platform that teaches you the correct way to make money online, it shows you step-by-step everything you need to know to make money online. There are a serious of many training videos followed by action steps to get you to your ultimate goal which is to make money online. The platform also offers quality web hosting for up to 25 websites, more than enough for the average Internet marketer!

You can read my review of Wealthy Affiliate here

The benefit of belonging to a membership site is that you are mixing with like-minded people, it gives you the opportunity to ask questions and learn from other people. When I started out, I was working totally alone and had to find everything out for myself, it was extremely difficult. You can actually sign up free of charge, no credit card is needed and you can learn two of the training modules which will give you a good idea if you like the platform. I cannot recommend this platform enough,  I would definitely recommend upgrading to Premium as the benefits are fantastic.

    Hi Roy,

    I have purchased so many worng products too or even if they were not that bad I was not dedicated enough. WA community is really cool and helpful and I think it is worth trying for everybody. How did you get into WA for the first time? Thank you for this helpful article!

    1. Hi Andrea,

      Thank you for taking the time to reply to my blog post. I hear you 100%, big time in your first two sentences, I was exactly the same Andrea! Being part of Wealthy Affiliate is fantastic, it is so different to how I started working online, which was totally blind, I know that I’m reading and learning correct information from the owners!

      I was a member of a smaller Internet marketing membership site which to be fair was an excellent site and in fact probably for 18 months I was a member of both platforms. However, I had to make the decision to belong to one membership site, so I made the decision to make wealthy affiliate my Internet marketing training platform. I can’t really remember how I found Wealthy Affiliate, I believe it may be through people talking on the other Internet marketing training platform.

      I’m very happy to be part of the Wealthy Affiliate platform.

      In the early days of learning about Internet marketing, I was running after bright shiny objects far too much, as I thought each one had something better to offer, but as we know this isn’t the case! The most important thing is to have the right platform which teaches you the correct way to make money online and in a ethical way.

      Enjoy your day Zayn.

    Thanks for sharing your wonderful heart warming experience with us. Some people dont realize that getting to the point where you  start earning a steady income in affiliate marketing can take a very long time and process along the way which often makes beginners or newbies quit their journey.

    Its definitely wise for any beginner new to affiliate marketing to join Wealthy Affiliate to start their affiliate journey so they dont make the same mistakes most people make. 

    Great Post!! Really appreciate it

    1. Thank you for taking the time to write a comment on my blog post, I do appreciate it. Wealthy Affiliate is definitely the way forward, if I had found this platform back in 2004 when I first started researching Internet marketing it would have saved me thousands!
