If you're anything like "Eddy with a y" you've probably tried paid online surveys. You got caught up in the hype that you could earn hundreds of dollars just for giving your opinion online.
So you spent hours on a survey only to earn less than minimum wage or you don't earn anything because there is a technical issue! Have you ever you wasted half an hour taking a qualification survey only to find out that you don't qualify for the damn survey? Arrrgg! Or maybe you're lucky and you do manage to take one survey. But then you don't get another one for months later.
Does any of this sound familar? Well that's the crap I use to deal with until I finally found a real way to earn money online.
But before I dive into what that is, I'd like to share proof of the income I've earned using this company. This way you know I actually walk the walk & not just talk that talk!
I'm not showing you these numbers to brag. I just want you to know what's possible. Because my goal is to get you there as well.
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 found a ï»¿ï»¿Legit Work At Home Community!ï»¿ï»¿
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 a 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 hyperventilating 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. They're a bit more involved, but nothing you can't manage.
Feel free to leave a comment below and I'll get back to you as soon as I can. Chances are I probably answered your question in my comments below. But if not, don't be shy. I promise to keep it real with you.
As I mentioned above the starter membership is totally FREE. No one is going to ask you for a credit card or anything annoying like that. You can stay a FREE Starter member for as long as you want. But if you want to upgrade to a premium membership that is $49 per month and that's purely optional. Premium gives you more access to additional training, support one one one help video, etc. But going premium is not required. You can optionally purchase a .com name for your website which is about $13 per year. Again, this is purely optional and not required.
That's the million dollar question. Unfortunately you may not like my real answer. The short answer is I have no idea when YOU will make money. Keep in mind WA teaches you how to create a real business online. They provide you with all the tools and training to help you succeed. It's like college, but not where you'll be in debt the rest of your life.
Like in college everyone learns at a different pace. Some may pick this up quickly and apply it quickly so they're more likely to make money faster. Others may need more time to grasp this and get this off the ground. So, since this is a business it can vary when you will actually make money.
Unfortunately, this is not like the job where you put in certain hours and you're guaranteed a set salary. Your first couple of months you're just learning the ropes and building a foundation. So you may not see your first dime for months later. But once you start building up the momentum the income does eventually come and is consistent if you apply the training.
But it varies for everyone and there isn't a definite time frame I can give you. Just know it's like a marathon and not a sprint. If you keep running, you'll eventually reach the finish line. But it definitely takes a lot of patience, hard work and delayed gratification. And that's why it's not right for everyone. I hope this helps.
I know you're probably used to people pulling crap out there butt. But let me show you some of the money I've made
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.
