Thank you for landing on my free Ultimate Guide to Making Money Online For Beginners!
I know you have a few questionnaires in your mind and I hope you will find the answers in this post.
I also hope you will find this post really useful and in the end, you will take action to start your online journey!
Let’s get started!
My name is Khan and I started my make money online journey back in 2008.
It hasn’t been a smooth ride, I have tried many things throughout the years which included Pay to Click Sites (PTC), Get Paid to Sites (GPT), Multi-level marketing (MLM) companies, blogging and many more that mostly turned out to be scams or closed their businesses.
I was involved in all those stuff till 2015, and after wasting many years and money, I came to know that these aren't the things to be pursued.
I wanted the freedom to work from home and relieve the pressure of office work.
Also, I wanted a business model where I don’t have to deal with the challenges of the above business models rather it takes me towards a way where I start building a passive income stream.
Then in May 2015, I finally found a proven system that showed me how to build an online business from home and satisfy all that I desired!
It was actually a training platform where I learned everything, and when applied correctly you can saw results like (some):
Believe me, when I started this system in 2015, I don't know anything at all about it. But over the three years, I have learned so much on this training platform, and it’s been an unbelievable journey!
But one thing I want to make it clear, it wasn't an easy journey, and I put a consistent effort to reach this level.
I owe all to this training platform that guided me everything from zero. No other system has helped me to get the same results.
This is the only reason behind my guide; I like to share what I found so you can establish the online business and live the lifestyle you want.
What I’m going to show you is all about building an online business that is sustainable for the long-term and will generate you a passive income for years to come.
Before I go into what this training program is, I will tell you how my online business works next.
It’s an interesting time to be in the online world!
All scam products online play with the emotions that money can be made overnight or instantly on the internet without making much of an effort.
Everyone appears to make money in a rush and want that turnkey system that actually doesn't exist.
Online business definitely has advantages over the offline business, but it doesn't mean you could take it easy.
I will never say you that you can make thousands of dollars by doing little to no work at all.
Having a business means you have to do continuous work that could mean finding ways to target more people and increase your reach.
The truth is "As you sow, so shall you reap." The more work you put here, the better the results and income you will enjoy in the future.
But today if you are willing to invest in your business, it will return to you in so many ways.
If you realize that this online business takes time and an unbroken effort to build, this could be the answer for you.
I love online business, and I hope you too!
I will also explain to you how to start it for FREE so keep reading!!
There are many ways you can utilize to make money online, but the best way is to create a simple website (don’t freak out yet, bear with me, & just keep reading) about a subject or topic in which you are passionate about.
If you love swimming, you can choose swimming as a topic, or there are thousands of topics like climbing, pets, make money, security cameras, baseball, volleyball, health, and fitness, relationships, motivation, languages and many more.
In business term, it is called a niche.
Let's suppose you have chosen a niche, "Fitness," now you will write helpful content about "Fitness" that will get your website on the first page of search engines like Google, Bing, and Yahoo.
If people make searches on Google about fitness, they will see your website on Google and click on it.
Your visitors will see you have lots of useful info about how to be fit and healthy (say for example); your visitor will most likely value your advice and do whatever you have written on that content.
If you ask them to click on a link, then they will click it, and generally, the links will take them to sites like Amazon, Clickbank, and eBay and if they buy that product, you will make a commission!
This entire process is called affiliate marketing, and it is the most widely used business model on the internet to make money online.
It’s a proven system, and many successful internet marketers are using this method.
Simply put, affiliate marketing is the method of earning a commission by promoting other people’s products and services.
So you can go to marketplaces like Amazon and Clickbank and sign up with their affiliate programs and start promoting their products with the unique affiliate links they give you.
When people click on your unique affiliate links, it will take them to Amazon and Clickbank websites, and if they buy something, you will earn a commission!
The above-described process, you never have to really “sell” any product or involve in face to face marketing.
You are getting visitors to your site because people are looking for a solution to their problem and you have mentioned the solution on your website. People are coming to you on their own, and you don't involve in any form of selling or anything like this.
I hate selling and already wasted my time on MLM companies, so this business model is ideal for me because I can write about things I love to do and helping other people do the same.
So, the crux of the matter is helping others because this will build trust.
Once you build a brand by making authority in that niche, you will reap the benefits for the years to come. As people trust you and click on your associate/affiliate links and purchase your recommended products or services.
Even you can master this affiliate marketing business in no time!
Just imagine, there are over 4 billion users (and growing each year) searching on the web for answers 24/7, do you think more than one person is searching for let’s say how to get six pack abs.
So if you write one helpful article on your writing can help way hundreds or even thousands of people around the world!
What if you have tens or even hundreds of such posts that are each benefiting thousands of people?
The more valuable you are in your niche, the better you could achieve rank on search engines, the more visitors you will get; ultimately the more money you’ll make.
You can earn money over and over again from that single post you wrote, which then generates passive income for you because you’ll be earning on that one article for months and years to come!
So could you guess if you had a tens of these articles helping lots of people on the web, and earning over and over again?
That's why having a website is so essential => People come to YOU.
If you don’t have a website, you will always be following the money. That's where you fall into the hands of such scam products.
Don't worry I will show you at the end how you can create your own such websites that help people and makes you money.
I understand you may know nothing about making websites, how to write useful content, or how to launch it on Google.
But, if you are ready to understand the idea of using affiliate marketing and assisting others by recommending products and services to them, that’s all you need to understand right now.
If you can understand how this of money making money process works, the rest can be easily learned, and I will explain to you how you can begin this new exciting adventure for FREE.
Literally, when I started, I didn't know anything about website and wary of things like coding, programming, and other stuff.
Nowadays, building your website is truly simple and only take a few clicks, and within a few seconds, you can have your website launch on the internet!
If you don’t believe me, keep reading, and I will show you!
Just count the lucky stars that you have a shortcut these days to build your website with.
I hope this provides you a little sigh of relief as I have seen many newbies with zero knowledge of any of this stuff and still be able to build a highly successful online business!
STEP 1: CHOOSE AN INTEREST
This is the niche I talked about earlier in my example of fitness.
You should be selecting something that you are really interested in and not what you think will earn you the most money.
This is really important because if you don’t pick a niche that you love or passionate about, you may soon lose interest in your business.
Every person has inherent liking for certain things, and you do all the time or something you really want to learn about.
With so many people online, millions of ideas will work for this business!
STEP 2: BUILD A WEBSITE
I know you may still have doubts about this part, but you don't need to worry about as everything will be live in a click of a button.
I will show you the best and simple way to build your website, even for free!
There is No technical knowledge required, and you’ll have your website live and running in a matter of minutes, if not less.
You will be amazed what you can do and how much easier than you thought it would be.
STEP 3: ATTRACT VISITORS
Now that you have your website live with a few valuable articles, you will start getting traffic!
You will see how to get UNLIMITED FREE TRAFFIC to your website, and you won’t have to advertise your site if you don’t want to.
This will happen when your website gets ranking well on search engines like Google, Bing, and Yahoo.
As people see you on Google and other search engines, they will start clicking on your website to visit it.
STEP 4: MAKING MONEY!
All you have to do is recommend products manufactured by companies Amazon, Target, Walmart, Clickbank, Nike, Apple, Best Buy, eBay, etc.
The companies pay you when you give them sales and reward you for all your efforts.
When you bring people to your website, they will start clicking on your suggested products.
When they order, YOU MAKE MONEY!

You don’t need to be an expert or professional writer; you just need to follow the training and take action accordingly.

At the start of this guide, I told you I'd tried a few things when I started my journey. These include blogging and affiliate marketing as well. I don't know how to do them correctly, but I was doing it on my own.
So, I ended up wasting my time and money.
I was hearing and seeing that people are making money from this and I tried many things to get the same results.

Wealthy Affiliate's Online Entrepreneur Certification Course
This course has 5 Levels as seen in the image above and each level has 10 lessons.

At the end of each lesson you’ll have a list of tasks to take action on so you are really building your online business alongside your learning.
On the right of each lesson, you will see a lesson tracker like the one seen on the right.
It keeps you organized and tracks where you are in each level and lesson.
On the top right of the tracker, it tells you what percentage you have completed which encourages you to keep going.
I always tell people not to skip any lessons because they are organized specifically to learn and do certain things on your website at a certain time.
So all you have to do is start at Level 1, Lesson 1 and continue through.
There is also a discussion area at the bottom of each lesson in case you have something to ask or something to say about what’s being taught.
It’s really the best training I’ve seen as it’s newbie user friendly!
