1. Participate in Market Research

There are many online platforms where you can sign up and participate in market research by sharing your opinions.

These online platforms are helping manufacturing companies to get feedback from consumers on their products/services. The companies are using this feedback to improve their products/services.

These companies will pay service fees to the online platforms for conducting market research.

The online platform will use a portion of the fees to pay the members for sharing their opinions.

Participating in market research or surveys will not earn lots of money, you can definitely earn some extra cash.

Some of the popular survey sites are Swagbucks, Survey Junkie, Branded Surveys and many more.

2. Complete Micro Task

There are some online platforms where you can earn money by completing micro-task like watching videos, playing games, listen to music.

Swagbucks offers many micro task opportunities.

Slicethepie is another site where you can listen to music, share your review and get paid.

3. Start A Blog

You can start a blog and write about anything that you are passionate about or have experienced.

Success online is a 4 step process.

One of the many ways to earn money online now is Affiliate Marketing.

Affiliate Marketing

What is Affiliate Marketing? How to earn money from it? In Affiliating marketing, you earn a commission for selling other people’s products or services. You don’t have to stock up any products, no billing or any customer service.

Let’s say you join Amazon’s affiliate program as Amazon Associates. You will get an affiliate link that you can use to promote the type of products you want to promote.

When you promote that link and someone click on the link and buys that product, you earn a commission. 

You Promote products or services —–> Customer clicks and purchase —–> Supplier made a sale —–> You earn commission from the supplier

Affiliate Marketing is one of the easiest and fastest ways to make a passive income. It is good for you if you just want to make some extra money each and every month or you want to build a full-time business.

Affiliate Marketing has a very bright outlook. There are many people going online searching for information on products and services. That is where you come in as an affiliate marketer to provide them with the information they are looking for. You create a content-rich website to help these people.

Getting Started

  1. Choose a Niche
  2. Choose Your Domain Name and Build Your Website
  3. Setting Up Your Website Ready for Search Engine
  4. Creating Your Website Content
  5. Understanding Keywords
  6. Getting Traffic To Your Site


Choose A Niche

What is a Niche? A niche includes products, services or interests that appeal to a small section of the population.

How to choose a niche? There is no right or wrong niche. For your first niche, it is good to write on a topic that you have an interest or knowledge in or are passionate about. Almost anything you can think of is a niche.

There are billions of people out there searching for information, products or services every day. Any niche you can write about will give you the opportunity to earn money online.

Choose Your Domain Name

Domain Names are very important to your success. When you purchase a domain name, you own it. Domain names increase in value just like any real estate asset.

I always recommend that you choose the “.com” version of the domain if possible as they tend to rank the best. People automatically type in “.com” out of habit.

Build Your Website

Firstly, choose a website name. The name of your website should match your domain.

Secondly, choose a design that you like.

Thirdly, Setting up Your New Website To Get It Found

Website Rankings = Targeted Traffic = Revenue

Creating Your Website Content

Search engines like Googles, Bing & Yahoo are after ONE thing. The most relevant content. Most people are afraid of writing content. You do not have to be a writer to write good content. You just write in the same way you are talking to a friend or family member.

Understanding Keywords

A keyword is simply a word or phrase that people search for on the internet. Every time you do a google search, you are entering a “keyword” in the search box.

Getting Traffic To Your Site

At this point, nobody knows your website exists. One of the quickest ways to get your site found is to post content on a daily basis. The search engines love fresh content. It will get indexed faster and better ranking.

Do You See The Potential of Affiliate Marketing ?

If your site has many articles and each article has its own content, you will have visitors for each article.  If those visitors click the affiliate link and buy something, you earn the commission!

The more you write, the more you earn. That is the potential of Affiliate Marketing.

  1. This is very comprehensive information about starting an online business. I wish I had this information many years ago. I really appreciate your work for putting this together. This is very detailed and easy to follow and understand. I love wealthy affiliate; this is a great community to meet great people and learn great things from.

    • Thank you for your comment,Hong. I am glad that you find the information helpful. I love Wealthy Affiliate too. It is where I learn and start my online business.

  2. What’s the return on investment at Wealthy Affiliate ? I think the opportunity online is far bigger than affiliate marketing. While affiliate marketing is a great business model, essentially you’re relying on making someone else money in order for you to make money.

    • Hi Aaron,
      Thanks for your comment. To answer your question- What’s the return on investment at Wealthy Affiliate?
      There are many factors that depend on that. There is no answer, because some people are running million dollar businesses, some people earn nothing (that do nothing). It really depends on too many factors and the individual.
      I agree with you that there are many more opportunities online that produce bigger returns.
