If you’re anything like "Eddy with a y" you've tried to find a legit work at home job. But let's keep it really real! The job search process is like trying to find that lost sock in the laundry. It's damn near impossible. So you may end up settling for little online opportunities like taking long ass surveys, reading emails that pay you a penny, clicking on links or trying out products that pay you.
I personally have a love hate relationship with these opportunities. Let me explain how I was finally able to escape this itty bitty income mentality and trap. You Can Too!
On one end these little online reward sites and surveys can be great because you can usually make some bits of money right away rather than hoping to land that elusive work at home job.
But on the crappy end of the spectrum, these opportunities usually pay less than minimum wage, require more effort than their worth and can take forever to reach the payout amounts. So it’s like a double edge sword from that perspective. Honestly how are you suppose to replace or supplement your income if it takes months to reach an actual payout on these little reward sites?
Unfortunately for many years I wasted a lot of time jumping through these money making opportunity hoops because they were the only legitimate ways I could find to earn some money from home. Here’s what I’ve tried.
Does any of this sound familiar to you? Sure each of these methods earned me money but it was usually less than minimum wage. I knew just working these programs on their own would never allow me to really replace or supplement my income. Then it hit me..
One day as I was taking a long ass survey that paid me a few cents, it dawned on me. There are literally thousands if not millions of other suckers people like myself taking these surveys. But when I thought about it, the people that were making the real money online were the people running websites. Here I was answering a 50 question survey for the last 30 minutes getting paid $.25 and the owner of the website was probably earning hundreds more.
The fact of the matter is most people that are successfully making REAL money online have websites that help people solve a problem. Here are some examples. Google.com helps people find information. The Amazon website helps people buy products at lower prices. The survey sites help people make a little money. People will always have a problem to solve and the people that make money provide websites that help people solve their problems. Duh!
So when I realized that I decided that I need to make a switch. No I wasn’t going to start a crappy get paid to take survey website or the next Google. I was going to start a simple website about my experiences trying to make money online. That decision literally changed my life because eventually hours I use to spend making a few cents were now making several Thousand dollars for the same amount of time. So how did I do it?
I’m going to break down the simple to follow steps needed to make the switch from earning less than minimum wage to a full time income totally online. But before I do, let me just say this, It’s going to be FREE to do all this. This has nothing to do with a shady MLM that promotes over-priced products people don’t want or need. Anyone can do what I’m about to reveal. You don’t need to be an expert or technology geek to make this all happen. I wasn’t born knowing any of this stuff. Like anything new we’ve all learned, someone taught me and I just mimicked what they did. So just know you are capable of doing this. Now that we got that pep talk out the way, let’s dive into it.
Step 1. Decide what your website is going to be about? What do you know a lot about? What’s your work experience? What hobbies do you have? What shows do you watch? Your website can literally be about damn near anything. But even if you don’t have an idea yet that’s fine, Wealthy Affiliate helps you with this!
Step 2. Build your FREE website. This is probably where you are hyper ventilating because you think building a site is like ice skating up a mountain backwards. Trust me it’s not that hard. If you can click on a few buttons then that's pretty much all the skills you need. You can actually build one for FREE and in less than 2 minutes. Look at this video.

Step 3. Get People to visit your website for FREE. No it’s not like the field of dreams where just because you build it people will come. Fortunately there is Google and they will literally send you tons of FREE visitors to your website. If you know how to write an email you’ll be able to write content on your website that will have Google sending you thousands of new people to your website 24 hours per day for FREE. The fact you’re on my site now shows this works. But if you're still nervous, don't worry because Wealthy Affiliate will teach you how to do this. It’s a lot easier than you think. But we have one more step to discuss.
Step 4. Make Money Without Your Own Product. So you’re probably wondering well how the hell am I going to make money with this website if I don’t have a product or service to sell? Well the fact of the matter is you don’t need to have any of that. There are literally thousands of companies like Ebay, Amazon, etc., that will pay you for promoting their products on your website. People click on their links on your site and if they buy something or ask for more information you get paid a commission! Wealthy Affiliate goes into more details about how to find companies willing to work with you and how to add them on your site.
Ultimately these 4 simple steps are pretty much all you need to start making real money online. Obviously I’ve over-simplified them by giving you an overview. There a bit more involved but nothing you can’t manage. So let's dive into how Wealthy Affiliate helps you power through these 4 steps with relative ease and simplicity.
Wealthy Affiliate (aka WA) is a FREE online community that teaches you all the 4 steps I listed above so you can start making real money online instead of the chump change we’ve all made on those little reward sites.
Each text and video lesson is designed to explain how to make money with a site in detail. The lessons are listed sequential order so you're not overwhelmed.
Every week WA hosts a live video class where an expert is teaching you new money making methods. So you're always up to date on new techniques that help you earn more!
Sometimes you have more questions that may not be addressed in lessons. Fortunately there are always other experts available online you can chat with directly.
If you need some extra hand holding, you can private message any of the fellow WA members or owners for individual advice or tips. That includes Eddy with a y!
Now you now understand that people that make real money online have websites. Well you get your own FREE money making websites that you can design and control.
WA makes creating a website easy. But sometimes you may run into issues or need help with your site. It's not a problem just message tech support and get a response in minutes.
There is much more that I'm not even listing here. But as you can see Wealthy Affiliate provides you everything you need to succeed at creating a money making website that will help you earn a full time income. Now I’m going to keep it real with you. It does take time to build a business that will make you real money. But you’re already spending a lot of time on these little money making sites and probably getting paid less than minimum wage. I’m not knocking your hustle. You can continue to do that so you’re bringing some money in.
But why not work towards building a real income as well especially when you can do it for FREE with the help of the Wealthy Affiliate Community & Online Training?
Well I don't know a lot of scams that will let you start their programs for FREE and WA does. But if you need some other outside validation this isn't a scam WA has a good BBB Rating as seen below.
At this point you may be having doubts about if you can do this or not. Trust me none of this is rocket science. If it were I definitely couldn't do it. Let’s put it this way. You weren’t born knowing how to read. But here you are on this website reading my page. You weren’t born knowing how to do any of the jobs you had. But eventually you learned the skills that allowed you to get and do your job. You weren’t born knowing how to use the internet but somehow you managed to log onto the internet and find my website (which wasn’t by accident because WA taught me to get you here. )
At the end of the day all this proves that you have the ability to learn anything new if you put your mind to it and have the proper support. Well this online business that WA teaches you is no different than anything else you learned in life. The only real question is are you willing to learn something that can potentially change your life forever. You can continue to earn little bits of money or none at all with these other websites. But I know you deserve a lot more. Wealthy Affiliate can give you that in time as it did for me. You just have to be able to say yes to yourself.
Wealthy Affiliate and I will literally hold your hand and walk you through this. History has already proven you are capable of learning new things. Don’t let a little intimidation of something new stop you for giving this a shot especially because it literally cost nothing to get started? So what do you really have to lose?
