The steps to make money online


Many people has asked this million dollar question, but aren’t sure where to look or start out.

As such, many scam websites take advantage of the lack of knowledge to scam people of their time and money. My purpose on this page is to make the process as transparent as possible and to explain the process of how making money online works.

MiddlemanJust like in the picture, your job is basically being the middleman by providing the information that the buyers want to find, and that you are helping to promote the various company products.

In short, you are the one matching the buyers and sellers and in return, you get a commission from the companies for that! It is that simple!

There are 4 steps to this process. The very first step is…

Step 1: Setting up your own website


Your website is like your home base. It is the very first tool you need to make your presence known to the internet and to start your own online business.

Many scam websites tend to advertise you don’t need a website to start online. That would usually lead you to spamming your links all over Youtube and Facebook, where normal users would just ignore your post, making it redundant.

I know what some of you are thinking, “But I don’t know how to start a website as I have no technical knowledge!”.

Don’t worry, I used to be in your shoes as well but I have created this website all by myself. Did you know you only need 30 seconds to create a fully functional website? The best thing is, WordPress takes out all the technical details so that all you need to worry is creating your website!

Step 2: Finding a target audience + Quality Content

Target AudienceYour website needs to focus on a target audience. It could be people who want to find a certain kind of health supplement, or kitchen appliances.

There are literally over 2 Billion people on the internet that are looking for information everyday so there is a very big audience to choose from.

Most people would search the Internet for information and reviews before buying a certain product. This is where you need to provide that information for people to come to your website.

Having the quality content helps you to build your customer base, and retain them so that they will keep coming back for more, resulting in more traffic!

Step 3: Getting your people

Once you get your website up and running, the next thing you would need is the ‘traffic’ to view it. There are many ways to do this, but the basics would traffic from search engines such as Google and Bing.

With the proper techniques, this results in having a better online presence and better ranking from search engines, which result in more traffic!

Search engine

Other ways could include video blogging, paying for traffic, advertising on other websites, and more!.

Step 4: Monetize your website

You got your website, content, and traffic. So what’s next?

This is where you can start making money from your websites! As a middleman, you can make money off so many things such as:Make money

  • 3rd party advertisement (In form of banners)
  • Google Adsense
  • Affiliate programs, such as Amazon products
  • Your own products or services

There are unlimited opportunities out there on the Internet. Which is why many people have already taken the step to start their website and part-time income online. Some successful people have even gone full-time with their business! You can see the number of people and the dedication of many to strive to make this their full time career at this post here.
