Don't Want Any Intro? Skip Right Through The Blueprint!

Why Listen to Me? Here's My Proof

Yeah, I know you would ask that question.

That's why I'm gonna' show my humble proofs which were made possible because of this method:

Not only that, I also have another proof from another platform:

Sure, the proofs look small and not enough for a full-time income.

After all, these sales were acquired for FREE.

 However, it's only a matter of time before I can scale it up to sizeable amounts.

Thanks to my proven 5-step blueprint which I'm using to run my online business.

Now For The Much Awaited Blueprint...

At this point, I'm going to give a quick overview of the 5-step process for getting your first 1,000 bucks online.

 It's not any complicated, and I'm sure even total newbies are able to implement this.

Do take note, however, that this method takes TIME and consistent EFFORT to give results.

That's the price to pay if you're not willing to spend money on ads.

 Anyway, here are the five steps:

  1. Find Your NICHE - This basically means choosing an area where you can specialize at. The best niche to choose is always something that you love doing.
  2. Build a WEBSITE - People will go to your website in order to inquire and learn more from you. It's also the place where you can establish your brand online.
  3. Create CONTENT - You need to produce content that will help people with their problems. When you do so, they'll start to trust you and see you as an authority in your space.
  4. Drive TRAFFIC - Your ability to drive traffic (aka 'real people') can make or break your business. After all, they're the ones who have the money to spend, right?
  5. Earn REVENUE - When you execute the first four steps right, this will be the easiest part to pull off. There are many ways to make money from your website, the best in my opinion is affiliate marketing.

 Nothing follows.

And yes, this is as simple as it gets.

Don't worry though, coz' I'm going to detail each and every one of these steps throughout this guide.

Wanna' Learn the Specifics of This Blueprint?

Instead of going through this ultimate guide, there's an even more detailed training that highlights the 5-step process. In fact, it's where I got my inspiration to craft this guide.

It will tackle the finer details of each step, plus you'll get the tools necessary to implement the blueprint, such as a website builder, keyword tool, writing platform, and a boatload of live training and classrooms.

Not only that, you'll get overflowing support from the members of this platform, including the founders, regular members, super affiliates, and of course myself!

I suggest you sign up for an account now for FREE to check it out.

STEP 1: Find a NICHE to Specialize In

niche simply refers to a 'segment of the market' that you're going to appeal to.

For simplification, it's safe to say that your niche is the 'industry' you'll be specializing in.

And by specializing, I mean people will perceive you as an 'authority' in the space.

For example, the weight loss niche is a group of people who are interested in losing weight and pursuing fitness. They might look for diet supplements, diet plans, weight loss programs, or workout equipment via the Internet.

The self-help niche refers to the population who want to improve themselves in some areas. They might want to increase their productivity, practice the Law of Attraction, get self-help book recommendations, or attend a mastermind group full of like-minded people.

The tech gadgets niche comprises of people who want to be updated with the latest gadget releases. These people might read smartphone reviews, watch unboxing videos, and of course buy an actual gadget online.

The language learning niche is filled with people who are actively pursuing a foreign language. They would most likely subscribe to blogs and YouTube channels on the language of their choice. Furthermore, they'll be downloading language learning apps, buy books, enroll in courses, and even engage in actual conversations with native speakers.

Are you getting the gist of it?

At its core, niche is simply a 'group of people' you'll be tailoring to.

And your job is to figure out what niche you wanna' specialize in right from the start.

Can't Think of a Niche? I Feel Ya!

Intimidated by the words authority, industry, and specialization?

Pounded by the pressure of choosing a 'million dollar' niche?

Paralyzed by all the finer details that come with  your idea?

Don't worry, you're not alone in this feeling.

Coz' believe it or not, I've been there!

I used to struggle with choosing a niche to specialize and make money from.

What I did to get past this overthinking problem, is I stopped thinking of it.

I went through 'trial and error' until I was able to determine the niche I'm confident of settling at.

Now, this doesn't mean YOU should go out there and make mistakes (just for the sake of making mistakes).

 If you've got some talent, skill, or hobby you're confident with, then feel free to leverage it.

However, if you find yourself thinking too much...

If you find yourself worrying about failure...

If you find yourself unable to establish what you wanna' do in exchange for money...

Then you might want to follow my strategy for choosing a niche to make money online.

You See, It All Boils Down to Two Factors: MONEY and PASSION

In order for me to get past through the niche dilemma, I stopped receiving advice from every direction.

Coz' believe it or not, Internet marketing gurus differ vastly in the way they approach niche selection.

Some would analyze it by the numbers.

Some just follow their hearts and take the plunge.

Some use their logic (the left side of the brain), while some use their feelings (the right side of the brain).

This phenomenon spawns the famous business argument: Money or Passion?

 Should you go for a niche that is very profitable, even if you don't enjoy doing it?

Or should you pursue a niche that you're having fun of, even if it's not profitable?

 If you ask me though, I prefer striking a BALANCE between the two.

Pick a niche that you know is popular and profitable, but make sure it won't bore you to death and that you'll learn to love it along the way (yup, it can be learned!)

Now, here's a list of profitable niches that you can choose from:

  • Weight Loss & Fitness
  • Health & Wellness
  • Dating & Relationships
  • Travel
  • Fashion & Beauty
  • Self-Improvement/Self-Help
  • Make Money Online/Biz Opps
  • Internet Marketing
  • Investing/Personal Finance
  • Pets (Cats, Dogs, Rabbits, etc.)
  • Survival/Prepper
  • Sports & Hobbies
  • Technology & Gadgets
  • Gaming & Movies
  • Language Learning
  • And the list goes on!

Mind you, I do not know every single niche on the Internet.

I just researched them by using Google and YouTube.

So if you have time, it's best that you do your own research to identify the profitable niches for yourself.

One resource that's overflowing with niche ideas is a site called Niche Hacks.

They have this freebie that contains 1,000+ ideas that you could choose from and specialize at.

Remember, it only takes ONE idea to get you started!


Ah... the dreaded word.

The word that buries countless businesses alive.

Unfortunately my friend, I cannot do anything about it.

Coz' after all, competition is a normal part of every business.

Even Elon Musk, who used to be alone in his pursuits with SpaceX, is now competing with Jeff Bezos and Sir Richard Branson when it comes to rockets and the aerospace industry.

I myself, when it comes to The Passionate Marketer, compete with hundreds of online businesses (possibly thousands) in the Internet marketing/biz opp niche.

Yet I don't see them as a threat to my business at all.

If any, it's a good 'sign' telling me that I'm participating in a niche that is hugely profitable!

With that said, I'm not ignoring my competition as if they don't exist.

I just make sure to offer my 'unique competitive edge' that will set me apart from the masses.

Coz' if I'm not unique enough, you wouldn't be reading this extremely detailed Ultimate Guide to Making Your First $1,000 Online, right?

Now, don't freak out.

Because the good news is, you don't need to deal with lots of competition in your chosen niche.

The Easy Solution? Narrow Down Your Niche!

That's right.

Instead of fighting for your share, you can just skip the competition all throughout by narrowing down your niche to a more specific audience.

So if you're into dog training, for example, you might find it hard to specialize in the dog training niche itself.

However, if you niche down to something like "german shepherd dog training", you're going to eliminate the businesses that don't train German Shepherds.

If you niche down to "adult dog training", then you can stop worrying about businesses that don't train adult dogs.

If you niche down to "dog agility training", then worry less about businesses that don't teach agility to their dogs.

Up for a challenge? You can also combine several dimensions to laser-target your focus.

 Like for instance, "Dog training for adult German Shepherds for agility"!


My point is, you wanna' narrow down the scope of your chosen niche to an extent that it will shed off a sizeable amount of competition.

When you do so, you have less businesses and people to worry about!

STEP 2: Build a Good-Looking WEBSITE

Once you have a working niche to begin with (doesn't matter if it's perfect or not), it's time to go to the next step.

You need a website for people to find your business.

Think of it as your digital 'storefront' where you offer your products and services to your target audience.

Amazon, for example, is a website where people go to in order to buy a wide variety of products online.

Netflix, another example, is a website where people subscribe to binge watch on their favorite TV shows.

Google, the popular search engine, is where people flock to in order to find answers to their queries.

Facebook is also an online storefront, which features an extremely powerful social media platform for interacting with friends and creating engagement.

Look, I could go on and on describing several more examples of a website.

But you get the point.

Having a website ensures that people will see your online business from around the world, working non-stop 24/7 even while you're sleeping!


"Sounds Interesting, But Aren't Websites Only For Geeks?"

It used to.

Back in the day, only computer experts, geeks, or IT professionals knew how to build a website.

Since it required the knowledge of programming languages such as HTML, Javascript, and PHP.

But now, times have changed.

Gone are the days of hard-coding a website from scratch!

Thanks to CMS tools (acronym for Content Management System), anyone can build a website WITHOUT having to produce lines of impossible-to-understand codes.

Don't worry now...

Because for this ultimate guide, I'll be simplifying the entire website creation process by guiding you to the most popular CMS tool, Wordpress.

"Great, So How Do I Get Started?"

Essentially, there are three ingredients for getting your beautiful website up and running.

First in the list is website builder.

A website builder would be something like Wordpress, since it's the one that will build you a website without going through lines of geeky codes.

Wordpress is super easy and convenient because you get to choose from a plethora of design templates (called themes) and activate them with a single click of a button.

In fact, selecting a theme alone can get you stuck because of the overwhelming amount of designs to choose from!

When that happens, it's best to just pick one very quickly (even if it's not perfect) because you can always change the theme later.

The second ingredient in the list is a hosting provider.

See, you can't run a website without having it hosted somewhere.

Imagine for a while that you'll be arranging a birthday party, which is obviously a gathering that is filled with excitement and delicious food.

Though your plans for making it memorable are all set, the party will NEVER happen if you don't have a place to host the event on.

And so you pick a venue for the event, which is provided by the company who owns the place.

You're gonna' contact the company, tell them that you'll host a birthday party, and then make specific arrangements that both sides will agree on.

Then on with the party!

Apply the analogy to website creation and hosting, and the same logic follows.

Your website will NEVER show up on the Internet if you don't have a place to host it on.

The venue, in this case, is the hosting platform you're going to use.

Best examples of popular hosting providers on the Web include: Hostgator, GoDaddy, and Bluehost.

The third and last ingredient for getting a website up and running, is your domain name.

A domain name is what you use to locate and access your website.

Google, for instance, is located at

Facebook, on the other hand, can be accessed at

The Passionate Marketer, my website, is found at

It's important to realize that whatever domain name you've come up with, stays with you FOREVER.

So this step must be taken seriously if you wish to be remembered by your audience.

A good rule of thumb for coming up with domain names, is it should be related to your niche.

Maybe add some keywords or terminologies that are often covered in your industry, like 'muscle' or 'weight' in the weight loss niche.

Another great idea for domain name is by adding your real name into it (perfect for creating a personal brand).

Make sure to test every idea you have if it's still available on the Web.

Coz' to be honest, finding a working domain name is getting tougher by the day!

So the earlier you can secure one, the better position you'll be in.

You Can Get All Three Ingredients In One Place!


You can start acquiring a website creator, a hosting provider, and a domain name right this moment.

However, you might purchase them individually (through different companies).

Which is obviously not cost-effective since it will cost you more money.

Instead, how about considering my highly-recommended website platform?

It allows you to create a website, host it, and have a name for it...

All in one place!

I promise you, this will be a time saver once I've introduced it to you.

And it's no other than SiteRubix.

If you insist, you can even try the platform for FREE for the sake of experimenting with websites.

You don't need a credit card to give it a shot.

Simply sign up for an account then build a website right from the get-go.

Question: "Is It Possible to Make Money Without a Website?"

Some of you might be wondering why I insist on getting a website and having an online presence first.

"Surely, it can't be the only way to make money online, right?"

My honest answer: YES.

I've seen people earn a full-time income without setting up a website at all.

So if you don't want to build a website, I'm totally fine with that.

But from what I've observed with non-website owners who are killing it, they're using different platforms to set up their income source, such as:

  1. YouTube - It's entirely possible to make money from a YouTube channel alone. Build a large subscriber base and monetize them either with ads, affiliate offers, or your own products & services.
  2. eBay - or any ecommerce site that allows you to host an online store on their platform. List your products there then start promoting your store.
  3. Facebook or Instagram - Just set up a very attractive social media page or profile, then start promoting it to your friends. When you become likeable enough, start recommending offers with moderation.
  4. Medium - It's a blogging platform where you can write articles and be paid for your work. Of course, you have to make sure that your content is of the best quality all the time for people to like it.
  5. Email List - I discovered this from the mini-courses I bought in the past. Gurus keep repeating over and over that an email list is your best asset coz' you can market to them over and over as long as they're subscribed to your list..
  6. Fiverr - and all kinds of outsourcing sites where you can list the skills you're good at. With this method, you're job is to attract lots of clients whom you can work with then deliver the best quality service.

Other than these common places, some people use forums to build credibility and grow their business. Others grow a podcasting channel then get paid for their popularity.

In rare instances, special people (aka hustlers) are able to make a killing WITHOUT signing up to any platform at all!

But I won't recommend that route if I were you.


Bottomline: You Need a PLACE to Establish Your Online Presence

Even if you can't run a website, it's NOT an excuse for not taking action at all.

The places I suggested to you are the alternatives which you can leverage to achieve your money-making goals.

Bottomline of all these, is you need a PLACE where you can establish yourself on the Internet.

Every single authoritative person I trust on the Internet does this.

Because remember, your online presence is how your potential customers will find you if they wish to do business with you.


If you're going to proceed with my steps 3 to 5, it's highly recommended that you create your own website because it's the one that would resonate with this ultimate guide.

In fact, website is the best platform to establish yourself since it cannot be taken away.

Coz' with YouTube or Facebook for instance, the admins could just decide to shut your account down without any warning or notice.

When you have a website named under your unique brand, it stays with you FOREVER!


STEP 3: Create Valuable CONTENT

Content is the undisputed "king" of the online world.

I say this because it's the most efficient way to build 'authority' on the Web, which puts you in the best position to gain long-term wealth.

In fact, an entire industry was built around the subject (called content marketing) to devise strategies for providing value to Web users.

Think of all the websites, blogs, YouTube channels, and social media pages you admire.

You've come to admire them probably because they provided content in some form or another.

It might be their vacation pics or photoshoots that got you hooked...

It might be their entertaining music covers that made you smile...

It might be their creative recipes that were very easy to follow along...

It might be their unique take on world issues and politics...

Look, whatever it is that makes you follow the personality you like, it's the result of him/her/they publishing content on a consistent basis.

So far, you've picked a working niche and gotten a new website.

Now it's time to fill your website with some amazing content of yours...

Content that's going to take you from zero to expert status!


Wanna' Know If a Guru Is Legit? Study His Content!

I've proven this fact time and time again...

In my 3 years of reviewing all kinds of gurus on the Internet, I noticed that the most genuine ones usually have plenty of helpful content  to show to their audience.

Try it and see for yourself.

The next time you come across a biz opp product or program, research the founder right away and search his online presence through Google or YouTube search.

First, find his website.

If it didn't work, check if he's got a YouTube channel, Facebook, Instagram, or other social media profiles.

The trick is, if you can't find even just one single platform where he could be staying, it's a sign that you must stay away from him (or her).

If you did find his online presence and it's filled with decent enough content, that's a positive indicator to learn more from him and take a closer look.


The Most Effective Ways to Deliver Content

Ready to start creating content?

Or maybe not?

Turns out I haven't explained yet how to do it.

But look, let's not overcomplicate things right from the start.

I'm gonna' enumerate to you the various ways of delivering content, regardless of what niche you're in.

They're the ones most used by content marketers to successfully grow their businesses:

1. Articles/Blog Posts - This is the easiest type of content to make, which is something you can absolutely never go wrong. Even shy introverts (like me) are able to produce articles and blog posts because it's comfortable (and doesn't require showing one's awful face!)

2. Videos - If you're adventurous, then video content would be a better fit for you. Though it's harder to produce, the reward is people are more likely to engage with you. After all, which would you rather consume, an article on how to solve a Rubiks cube, or a video of a guy demonstrating and solving the cube right in front of your eyes?

3. Podcast - If you've been blessed by the heavens with a talented voice, then why not host a podcast and produce audio content on a consistent basis? To see an example, try studying Pat Flynn's SPI podcast.

4. Images - Yup, posting graphics on a consistent basis is also one way of producing content. This is great if you're very talented at design and your niche demands a lot of visual content.

The content type I'm using right now, if you're curious to know, are articles and blog posts.

I use them because I find myself skilled at writing, honed by years of practice on this website as well as with my actual notebooks in the shelves.

Plus, I can write almost EVERYWHERE: In the mall, at coffee shops, in restaurants, in my room, while at commute, heck, I even do it in the bathroom!

Sure, one day, I'll be converting this ultimate guide into an hour-long video (once I learn how to).

But at the very least, I should hone my craft at writing because the content I make is easy to convert into something else in the future.

The process is called repurposing.

Unfortunately, I won't be able to teach it coz' I've yet to learn the strategy. So just Google it if you want to learn more about the subject.

Ultimately, Your Content Choice Will Depend on Your Niche

The fashion niche relies on visuals.

Food niches demand lots of pictures (and also articles).

Educational niches prefer videos to deliver the information.

Every niche out there has an ideal type of content for best results. In fact, you can mix all of them if you've got the creative juices, resources, and tools.

As you study your niche in more depth, you'll naturally discover which content types work best.

But it's safe to say that articles and blog posts are applicable to almost every niche imaginable.

So if you don't know where to start, just start writing in your blog. You can change your content strategy later on.


STEP 4: Drive Targeted TRAFFIC

Money comes from real people's wallets and credit cards.

They never come as a result of pushing a 'magic button' or turning on a cash machine (like what shady gurus claim).

So in order to make money online, our goal then is to get as many people as possible to see our business.

On the Internet, we call these people traffic.

That's what we're gonna' talk about in this section.

For an analogy, think of your website (or online presence) as a hotdog stand,

Think of your content as the hotdogs,

Then think of traffic as the people passing by your stand.

Now let me ask you: Where would you rather place your storefront if you want the most profits, in the middle of the desert, or in the busy streets of Manhattan?

If you're a wise entrepreneur, you should be in Manhattan since you have better chances of getting seen.

It's the best position for your business to thrive because surely, people will fall in line for your hotdogs.

You see, you can't just produce content and believe that people will come to consume it.

Part of your strategy should also be about bringing in the most traffic possible to your online business.

Another Heated Debate: Free Traffic or Paid Traffic?

Speaking of traffic generation, we've yet again to face another heated debate.

That is, whether to use free traffic or paid traffic to run your online business.

Free traffic is traffic you acquired that didn't cost you a dime.

Obviously, the main advantage of using free traffic is it won't hurt your budget. It's the best way to bring leads and customers for website owners who don't have the luxury of spending a fortune on advertising (or are not willing to let go of their money).

Also, I've heard so many times that one must master free traffic sources first before stepping into paid traffic in order to avoid costly mistakes. Furthermore, the insights you'll get from free sources will help you know more about your target audience. 

Now, paid traffic is traffic which came to you as a result of spending money.

Some gurus claim paid traffic is faster because it saves you a great deal of valuable time, which could be allotted somewhere else.

And it makes total sense: Why go through the hassle of working and generating free leads, when you can just pay for them and get results quicker? After all, you'll be spending money on your business sooner or later!

You see, both free traffic and paid traffic have strong arguments to defend their point.

However, let's not forget that both traffic methods have their own respective downsides as well.


Free or Paid, It's Going to Cost You Something!

Having acquired some experience with both free and paid traffic, I came to understand what they both cost in my own online business.

Like for free traffic, it's NOT totally free at all.

In exchange for not paying a cent on advertising, you have to exert more effort and take more time for your traffic source to bear fruit. You would also need consistency probably until your traffic starts to take off by itself.

Nevertheless, there's no pressure to get your money back because you spent zero dollars on it.

Meanwhile, paid traffic costs real money on your part.  

Though you don't have to work as hard as with free traffic, there's still a considerable amount of time and effort required to pull off the traffic source.

And not to mention, you'll be experiencing the pressure to get your money back, which is something that won't happen overnight when you practice paid traffic.

At first, expect to lose money and not enjoy profits from it. But once you've gotten the formula, you can simply scale it up to enormous amounts.

A phenomenon coined by some as the "compound effect".

But don't worry, I won't go into the specifics of this concept. Just realize that both free and paid traffic have the potential to scale up to enormous amounts, just like a snowball that's growing bigger and faster while rolling down the hill.

Since You're Here In This Guide, We'll Go For Free Traffic

Now, don't worry about who wins the free or paid traffic argument, it doesn't concern me at all.

Coz' remember, you signed up for a guide on How to Make Your First $1,000 Online For FREE.

So don't expect me to teach paid traffic in this guide!

Just to recall to you, I earned my first 1,000 bucks without spending a dime to acquire it.

It was just the byproduct of me working faithfully on my website over a period of time.

And as you go through Step No. 5, you'll discover the method I used to earn this initial (but crucial) income.

For now, let me introduce you to the traffic source I used.

My Top Recommendation: Google Search Traffic

That's right.

Google is my bias coz' it's my favorite source of free traffic for my website.

You see, billions of people search Google every day on a wide variety of topics. For sure, a sizeable fraction of this population go from searching something to buying stuff with real money.

Best of all, Google traffic works regardless of your chosen niche.

The key is to determine the right keywords to target if you wish to get maximum exposure from this search engine.

If you ask my strategy, I write a lot of product reviews because this type of post attracts people who are about to buy and have the money to do so.

I target keywords which a typical buyer would use to find reviews, such as:

  • [product] review
  • [product] scam
  • is [product] a scam
  • is [product[ legit
  • [product] complaints
  • what is [product]
  • and a whole lot more

Now, go ahead and try shooting for these keywords.

I'm sure these keyword formats will attract high-quality & laser-targeted traffic to your website for free!

Anyway, let's move on...

Once you have the traffic, it's time to implement the next step in this blueprint.

(TIP: If you're itching to harness Google traffic for your website and you want RESULTS, then keep reading to learn your next course of action.)



The last step of my 5-step blueprint turns out to be the easiest to pull off.

That is, you can start earning revenue from your website.

Your way of monetizing your website depends on the nature of your traffic and where you acquired them.

But since you're following my blueprint, I can simplify your monetization options to just a few.

Now you might be wondering, "Why do I have to simplify my options, when I have the freedom to use EVERY monetization method there is on the Internet?"

While I believe that it's possible to slap five ads, promote affiliate links, and sell a dozen products on your website, it's NOT a guarantee that you'll make more money with it.

I mean, would you stay on a website that's bombarded with offers, banner ads, and annoying pop-ups?

It's probably okay if the site is already an authoritative one (like Forbes or Huffington Post).

But remember, you're just starting out with your website. Not everyone knows and trusts you yet!

So why sacrifice 'user experience' for the chance of cashing in more?

I hope you get the point.

"Stress-Free" Ways to Monetize Your Website

With that said, I suggest only a few monetization methods in order not to complicate things.

I mean, your mind is already super busy trying to digest everything in this ultimate guide.

Therefore, I'll help simplify the process by giving you 3 of my top recommended methods (in no particular order):

  1. Advertisements - Have you ever wondered why some websites are bombarded with ads all over the place? That's because website owners make money when you click on them. In fact, you too can sell ads in your website by joining popular ad networks like Google AdSense or Taboola.
  2. CPA Offers - CPA stands for "Cost Per Action", which is an awesome way to make money WITHOUT having to sell anything. When a person takes a particular action such as clicking your link, signing up through your link, registering for a promo, or joining a contest, you get paid money.
  3. Afiliate Programs - Becoming an affiliate for a company is the closest thing to owning a product or service because you can sell them as if they're your own. The only difference is you'll be earning only a portion of the sale (called commission), which will be paid by the company to you.


The Best Method to Make Money: Affiliate Marketing!

If you don't mind, allow me to be biased for a while.

Coz' out of the three ways to earn money that I've mentioned, affiliate marketing is the most promising in my opinion.

As you can see in the graph in the right, the entire industry has been booming to multiple billions of dollars within the decade.

Which simply implies that more companies are tapping into the business model to scale their businesses.

More companies are setting up affiliate programs so that you and me would have an abundance of products and services to choose from and promote.

In fact, affiliate marketing is the very reason why I made my first 1,000 dollars online!

I simply joined affiliate programs for FREE in order to grab my affiliate links, which I could then place in my website and blog content (particularly reviews). I then did my best to rank articles on Google search because my target audience is there.

Once traffic comes to my website and they see that I specialize in the niche where the affiliate product belongs, they'll recognize me as someone they could trust.

Now, I don't expect every visitor to come and buy my recommendations. Even if I did my best in writing high-quality content, most readers would still leave the page.

But because I gave my website some time to grow, I generated a lot of sales in the process.

And yes, those sales were affiliate commissions!

In case you're wondering where such affiliate programs can be found, you can start with the most common but highly reputable affiliate networks on the Internet, such as:

  • Amazon
  • Ebay
  • ClickBank
  • ShareASale
  • Rakuten
  • JVZoo
  • Commission Junction
  • Target
  • Walmart

Another way to find affiliate programs in your particular niche is by Googling "[niche] + affiliate program" or checking your favorite brand's online store and searching the main menu and footer for an 'Affiliate Program' link.

Whichever you promote, read the terms carefully and make sure you're being paid well for promoting the company's products and services. But more importantly, reassure that the company DOES pay!


Now You Have The Blueprint... Time to Take Some Serious ACTION!

There you go, the five steps to making money online: NICHE, WEBSITE, CONTENT, TRAFFIC, REVENUE.

I know it has been a long-winded newbie guide, but trust me when I say that these five fundamental steps are all you need to earn your first crucial dollars.

Beyond my blueprint, you're the one in charge with scaling it up yourself.


You've gotten the blueprint for making money online.

So it must feel like you've already earned a thousand bucks, right?

Hmm... No?

No wonder, coz' I've only told you the facts and figures of what to do.

The more important question is: Will you go and implement my teachings?

Are you prepared to take real action to finally put 1,000 bucks in your bank account?

If you're like me when I first started online, you'd have troubles in taking the first step. Procrastination will soon take over your head and it'll put you back in your comfort zone.

Do you seriously want that to happen...

To forget everything I've taught you and go back to your daily routine as if nothing happened at all?

This might have been the chance to end all your financial struggles, but you're skipping it?

Are you scared of failing and losing money while pursuing a dream you wanna' grab a hold of?

Look, I get it.

I know how tough running an online business and making money online is. It's not a fun ride.

That's Why I'm Offering My Personal Guidance to YOU!

After 3 years of struggling, falling for shiny objects, and facing countless hardships along the way, this is the only time I'll be doing this.

I've finally decided to step things up a notch by offering my personal guidance and support to YOU.


I'm doing this because I don't want anyone to experience the trauma of being ignored by a mentor.

You see, I signed up for an expensive coaching program a few years ago. But all my crappy coach did was send me some rehashed content which he used to sell for 10 bucks.

He created me an account so I can access his exclusive members area which looked like a filthy garage!

Still, I was ready to forgive him for such junky interface as long as he could show me the way to success.

Which unfortunately, did not happen to me after I tried implementing his advice.

After 30 days (the period when I could still ask a refund), he stopped answering back to my questions. He totally left me in the wilderness while taking away my investment money!

But admittedly, it was my fault for not assessing this guru properly. I thought his methods were unique and foolproof enough for me to understand (since he had great content in his blog).

In the end, he was a scam.

So look, I get it!

Maybe you've experienced deception from evil gurus before, and you totally despised the experience.

And now, you're looking for a REAL solution to your real financial problems. 

If that's the case, there's no need to look further.

I'll be your mentor who's going to break down the 5-step blueprint even more.

I don't charge anything for mentorship since I haven't gotten the proper credentials to sell my wisdom.

However, I'm going to request you to follow my top recommended program for making money online, which is something I've been a loyal member of for 3 years.

That place is no other than Wealthy Affiliate.


What is Wealthy Affiliate (WA)?

In a nutshell, Wealthy Affiliate is a training program and platform for creating an online business specializing at affiliate marketing.

It was founded by two successful Internet entrepreneurs, Kyle and Carson, who are both very experienced in the industry.

Officially, the company launched in September 2005.

A few years after WA was established, Jay, another Internet entrepreneur, joined Kyle and Carson in the development of the platform. He's assigned to hold live webinars every week and has gotten really good at the craft ever since.

Together, they worked hard in growing the platform until it eventually became a thriving community for like-minded online business owners.

Along the way, WA produced lots of success stories and helped people create full-time income on the Internet, thanks to its "newbie-friendly" training that is simple yet proven!

Here's What Wealthy Affiliate Looks Like

The Big Picture: Here's How Much WA Has Accomplished

The stats above tell the whole picture...

Showing how big of an impact WA has made in the online business education space.

All in all, it's over a decade old, has members in almost 200 countries, houses more than a million members, produces thousands of businesses per month, gives you access to a thousand coaches, and helps countless people in running their businesses. 

Without question, this is something you rarely see on the Internet.

You see, I've witnessed HUNDREDS of biz opps and shady companies come and go.

They were created to deceive and sell innocent people 'the dream' of passive income and financial freedom, but never delivering on whatever promises they've made.

Wealthy Affiliate is different, which is completely evident from the numbers above.


DISCLAIMER: What Not To Expect From Wealthy Affiliate

Having mentioned the positives, I also want to warn you about the negatives or the things you shouldn't expect from Wealthy Affiliate.

The most obvious one, is that WA is NOT a "get rich quick" scheme.

It took me a long time to earn my first $1,000 with the help of this program, simply because I wasn't doing things properly right from the start.

I was a complete newbie when I got inside, so I understood my limitations and never set high expectations to amass a lot of success very quickly.

And neither should you (if you're a beginner today).

Also, you'll clearly notice with Wealthy Affiliate that it never promises any amount of earnings in a specified time.

That's because NO ONE can exactly determine how much you'll be earning inside the program. It will depend on how much time, effort, money, and resources you're willing to give.

And even if you think you've done everything in your might, it's still not a 100% guarantee of success!

Be prepared to face hardships along the way and make sure you "never quit" when your mind is telling you to do so.

Another thing I'm gonna' warn you with, once you've gotten the hang of WA, is you're not obligated to follow what's exactly taught nside.

Realize that you have a great degree of freedom to tweak whichever portion that doesn't resonate with you. 

Coz' the truth is, I've seen veteran members inside WA who have online businesses so big that they're able to expand and seek new strategies for growth (stuff which is totally outside the training!)

Bottomline, don't feel confined to whatever is taught inside.

If you think your ideas or strategies are better, feel free to override the training and implement what you know.

So, are we good?

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What makes Wealthy Affiliate special? Why should I join it instead of other 'make money' programs?

Wealthy Affiliate is an "all-in-one" platform where you can find everything you need to start an online business, such as the training, tools, technology, community, and the much needed support to get you going towards your journey to success. Most money-making opportunities out there only provide 1 or 2 of the elements I mentioned (training, training and tools, training and community, tools), but never all of them!

Is Wealthy Affiliate a scam?

From my own definition of a scam, of course not. You will not feel ripped off because the place is loaded with training, tools, and all the stuff you need to run a thriving online business. In fact, the creators of WA (Kyle and Carson) keep on improving the platform and adding more features as time goes by WITHOUT charging an extra for every upgrade they've placed. As for track record, their integrity remains unshakeable for over a decade because they held on to their beliefs, with the primary focus on providing 'real value' to their members.


Are there hidden costs associated with Wealthy Affiliate?

While many online programs out there sell upgrades after the initial purchase, Wealthy Affiliate's only paid offer is the Premium membership. Behind the scenes, however, you'll be purchasing domain names for $15/year each, which is super cheap considering you only need ONE domain name to start!

Can one succeed with the free Wealthy Affiliate Starter membership?

Yes it's possible, but it's an unlikely event especially if you're just starting out in the online world. Besides, spending money is inevitable at some point in time if you truly want to succeed and produce good income. The great thing about WA is it's very "cost effective" because you have everything you need in one place.

How long does it take to succeed with Wealthy Affiliate?

I can't give a definite answer for this. But if you're starting out as a newbie, prepare at least 6 months because you'll have to go through the fundamentals first. And in my experience, things are gonna' be slow at the beginning, but builds up momentum quickly over time. However, don't be fooled by members who've tasted success earlier than 6 months. It's either they were lucky, very disciplined and faithful to their work, or already had some experience prior to joining Wealthy Affiliate.

Is it possible to succeed faster?

Of course! However, you have to give something in exchange for what you want. You can spend more time working on your website, as well as learning new things every day. You can spend more money to speed things up (possibly on advertising, tools, design, or outsourcing). You can exert more effort than usual to produce more output. In the end though, it's still NOT a 100% guarantee of success.
