I've Been Saving People Like You from Scams for Over 8 Years. Today, I'll Help You Make Real Money Online

My name is Steve Razinski and I founded I've Tried That in 2007. My goal was to try all of these "make millions online overnight" type programs and put their claims to the test.

Since you're here reading this now, I have a hunch that you already know how those go.

I know you’re jaded from false claims and outlandish promises of wealth online. Hear me out though.

Right now, all I ask is for five minutes of your time.

Five minutes of uninterrupted attention.

In return, I'll teach you something new: the best way I've found for beginners to really build an income online.

By the time you reach the end of the page, you'll learn:

I'm also going to GIVE you the following:

Stick with me. By the end of this page, you'll learn something new and you'll be ready to start building your very own online business today.

Building the Foundation & Who is Steve?

Before we dive in, I wanted to share a little bit about me. I do think my backstory will help you realize the kind of lifestyle that’s waiting for you.

I want to first start with sharing some of my latest adventures.

Here’s my beautiful wife Amanda and I whale watching off of Maui, Hawaii…

And here’s Amanda in Monterey, California...

And here I am at Giant's Causeway in Northern Ireland…

I’ve chosen these three pictures for two reasons.

The first, is to showcase our love for travel. We want to see as much of the world as possible. We both know time is our most finite resource and we want to get around the planet as many times as we can.

The second being, these pictures were all taken less than six months apart.

Building our businesses online has granted us the freedom and flexibility to do pretty much whatever we please. We’re not bound by 40 hour work weeks, incompetent “I’m going to need you to come in this weekend” middle-level managers, or depressing-as-all-hell cubicles.

We are both in control of our own lives.

I started I've Tried That back in 2007 after I lost $50 to a data entry scam. It promised the world for easy work and I bought into the hype.

I felt horrible losing money to blatant lies. How could that even be legal? They were clearly misrepresenting work in an attempt to steal money from people.

I wanted to make sure no one else ever had to go through that experience and thus I've Tried That was born. It's now 8 years later and running this site (among others) is now my full-time job.

Amanda has recently quit her full-time engineering job to work alongside me and build her own business as well.

I've been blessed to live a lifestyle most people can only dream about.

The next section will show you exactly how I've done it. By the end of this page, you'll see how you can start building your very own business alongside myself and thousands of other successful, like-minded entrepreneurs.

Here's How I Make My Money Online

This is what you came here for.

Information on how to start making money online.

I create content online that connects people with the information they're searching for. And I get paid to do so.

I create websites (And by the time you reach ten end of this page, you'll see that yes, even you, can create your own website within seconds.) People find my sites through Google or Yahoo read what I write and if they click on one of the ads on my website, I make money.

Here's a look at the process...

It can be very lucrative or it can simply be used to earn a part-time income depending on how much time and effort you are willing to put into it.

You could make $10 a day or $1000 a day or anywhere in between doing so. There aren't any limits (but do remember that this is hard work and will take time to build to that level.)

It’s really up to you.

There are tens of thousands of companies out there that are BEGGING for people like you to come work alongside of them. Companies you know of and are familiar with. Companies like Amazon, Walmart, and Best Buy. They offer programs called affiliate programs and when you join them you become their affiliate.

Your goal as an affiliate is to send visitors to their website. (Some companies pay just for the click!)

If one of your readers buys something, you get a commission.

It really is as simple as that!

Proof it Works: Here's an Example

This can be hard to visualize so let me give you an example.

I wrote a post on I've Tried That a few months ago where I reviewed a "wake-up light."

The product was a Philips HF3470 Wake-Up Light.

At the bottom of that post are two links that link to the light for sale at Amazon.com.

Any time someone clicks on one of those links and buys ANYTHING (not just the light, ANYTHING) at all at Amazon.com, I receive a commission.

Very cool, right?

A lot of people have read my review. In fact, my website shows up first in the Google search results for 'Philips HF3470 review'

That review accounts for about 7 sales of wake up lights a week on average! I usually earn about $50/week from that one review alone!

That's an extra $200 a month for a post that took me maybe 45 minutes to write. This isn't even accounting for any other items sold at Amazon that I may have received credit for. That number may actually be much higher!

Below is just a screenshot of one month of orders on just the wake up light alone. I highlighted the last column because that is how much I was paid per order.

And this doesn't even include other products that may have been purchased at Amazon that I got credit for!

The Best Part Is That I Don't Sell Anything.

I help people find the information they're searching for online.

I deliver quality information that helps people make decisions and then send them over to a store like Amazon who handles the rest.

Think of how many trillions of searches that are done at Google or Bing or Yahoo and how many billions of dollars are spent online.

Starting to see the value of Online Content Creation?

This is very powerful stuff!

There are affiliate programs in almost every imaginable niche.

Nearly every major company out there has an affiliate program. You can partner with companies like Walmart, Amazon, Target, Nike, Best Buy, eBay, Apple, Microsoft, HP, Dell, Nikon, Canon, Sony, Samsung.

The list is really endless.

Your goal is to find your own little niche on the web, partner with a company, and incorporate their ads on your site.

Here Are Some Ways I Make My Money Online

I'm about to share with you some very personal screenshots of a few of my own accounts. I want to make it clear up front that these earnings come as a result of years of hard work online. This is just to show you what's possible if you really dedicate yourself to building an online business.

Just remember as you look through this: years of hard work. Don't expect to start an Online Content Creation career today and make this kind of money tomorrow. Plan on learning first, then implementing what you've learned, and using your knowledge to build an income and you'll be okay.

Let's start with...

I'll save you the trouble of adding that up. It comes out to $1,243.60. That's over a thousand bucks over a two week period. These earnings all come from ONE SINGLE article I wrote OVER TWO YEARS AGO. Yes, you read that correctly. That one single article has been consistently making this kind of money for over two years now. It took me only a few hours to write.

I used a few article marketing training guides at Wealthy Affiliate to help me write a compelling article and learned how to properly promote it and drive traffic to it. This was one of my first "big ideas" and has been a cash cow for me ever since.

Next we have...

This one is a personal favorite of mine.

Here's what you get when you have highly targeted traffic. This article comes in at only 300 words, but it's been highly optimized for some of my best traffic.

Best of all, it's a rewards type site online that is free to join. I'm helping people save money online and getting paid to do so. All the user has to do is submit their name and email address and this company pays me. Nothing is bought, I'm not selling anything, and this is information they are already looking for!

I expect this one article alone will start making me over $6,000 EACH MONTH. That's a $72k annual salary from a 300 word article.

Let that sink in.

Here's what happens when you issue a positive recommendation on a product you happen to like. To be more specific, $11,212.13 happened in 2015 alone.

Again, this is one article I published in 2014 and it made me over ten thousand dollars in 2015. Literally, 2 hours of my time has earned me five figures, so far.

The best part is, the article didn't even really start to take off until the end of 2016. The current rate of sales has continued into 2016 and I'm expecting to see double what I made in 2015.

One article. Two hours. Written over a year ago. May very well make me six figures.

And here's...

I've highlighted in blue what we were paid for one day by Amazon.

Actually, this screenshot comes from Amanda's (my wife) deal tracking website. She helps people find good deals on popular items online and major retailers like Amazon, eBay, Best Buy, Walmart, etc. pay her every time one of her visitors buys something from their store.

Amanda QUIT HER JOB as a highly paid mechanical engineer to run this website. We now work full time from home together and get to travel the world from the income we generate online.

Like I said above, this is a small sample of some of my own personal income. Every one will have a different experience, but I wanted to show you just what's possible with an Online Content Creation.

Don't Just Take It From Me...

It's easy for me to share how I'm making money. I have years of experience and work under my belt. I know my way around a website.

The question you probably have is "Okay Steve, that's great and all. But I have no experience. Do you really think you can help me?"

I'll let two of my students do the talking for me.

The following are two individuals who have found my website, read this page, and decided to take action. The recently published blog posts outlining their experiences after three months.

I didn't ask them to write these. These are two public blog posts that they wanted to share.

  1. I just had to come back and give you my thanks for your recommendation on WA Steve. I took up your recommendation a few days ago with a bit of natural skepticism (I have trust issues hehe).

    Out of all the things I have tried online, this is the only one that gave me a sense of being and a sense of legitimacy. I not only heard from you right away, I have spoken with others in the community already and even with Kyle who I think is the owner. Pretty sure it was him anyways?!

    Anyways, cool stuff. I am currently on Lesson 5 and I already have my niche chosen, my website built and my business is steaming along and I haven’t spent a penny. Where else can you get that sort of service. I am definitely leaning towards going Premium as it seems to be an obvious choice for me as a I really want to finally make a success of this.

    Sorry for my long message here, but from me to you Steve thank you for pointing me towards the brilliant system at Wealthy Affiliate.

    1. It was definitely Kyle. Both him and Carson (the other owner) are using the platform and answering questions all throughout the day. Their responsiveness and willing to help is one of the reasons why I have WA rated so highly.

      Very glad to hear you’ve been enjoying your time there and liked my recommendation. Be sure to reach out if there’s anything I can do to help!
