Hi Steve! Sounds like a great way to start making a little extra travel money on the side. I’m not sure that I understand what the basic website should be about. Or can it be about anything? And then how do I narrow it down? Thanks and I look forward to hearing from you!
There are quite a few guides at Wealthy Affiliate that’ll help you figure out a popular niche based on your own interests. I’ve written a guide myself that you can view here.
Another Australian here, I just wanted to say thanks for providing this info. I’m signing up to wealthy affiliate as soon as I’ve finished typing this. I really need flexibility in my work life and this sounds like a great place for me to start.
Glad to hear it Chrystel! I look forward to working alongside you :)
Very nice! I see you wrote about something to help sell it at Amazon to make a little money. I am very new to this, so the affaliate program teaches this and gives you connections to eBay,Amazon etc..?
Yes, you’ll be taught how to identify what’s a good topic for a website and how to partner up with companies to make commissions on potential sales at their sites.
Hi, Steve. Glad to meet you. I have never expected to learn so much from reading just one article about making money. I did not believe that there is an honest way to earn money without selling something. May be someday I also will be helpful like Peter with his parrots. I am 52 and I need extra money to help those in need. Thank you, Steve!
Thanks for taking the time to read everything Pavel! I think you’ll quite like what you find at Wealthy Affiliate and I look forward to working with you.
Hi Steve, after we earn the money online, will they send directly into our account? If not, how?
Every affiliate company will have different payout options. The most common options are pay by check, by Paypal, or direct deposit into your bank account.
Hi steve, I was just wondering if there is an age requirement to join Wealthy affiliate?
There is not! Some affiliate companies may put age restrictions on signups, but I’ve seen most offer membership to those under 18 as long as they have their parent’s permission.
I live in the top end of Darwin Australia. I am looking for an online business to start up, working from home. I have also lost money to websites that are not quite what they offer and am pleased I came upon your link before signing up for another supposed scam website offering huge money in a short amount of time. As you can imagine I am very wary at this stage, but am willing to try out your offer. Can you give me advice to help get started.
The best course of action would be to definitely create a free account at Wealthy Affiliate and just dive in to the first lesson offered and go from there.
The lessons were created to help ANYONE go from complete beginner to building a website within a very short period of time. Just hop in, start going through the training, and talk to the community when you get stuck!
You live in australia… awesome.
All you need to do is go to your backyard and snap some pictures on your phone and you’ll have all the content you need to get started. Seriously.
People who live anywhere in north america or most of europe are amazed at autralian wild life. We cant help but to just gawk at it like a 40 year old who sees snow for the first time.
Steve, I am currently living in South America and looking to suppliment my earnings from a small home service business being run in my stead back home. Will this program work out of US? Thanks in advance…
Absolutely. Wealthy Affiliate is a global community and we have members from every continent all over the world. As long as you have an Internet connection you will be just fine!
Wow, a refreshing take on building an online business here for sure. I see that you have some great things to say about Wealthy Affiliate and I’m going to sign-up when I have a few minutes later on my break. I’m wondering about how much time someone has to spend to make a few bucks online? I’m not looking to get rich overnight because I don’t believe that is possible. I’m just wanting to know if I can do this with a fairly limited schedule. I have time, but I can’t spend all day everyday working on this. I guess I’m just asking if people can do this in their spare time?
Inspiring pics too! I someday would love to have the freedom that you do from my 40 hour, M-F job. I figure if I can find a trustworthy place to learn, then I will be more than willing to put in whatever time I have.
You’re definitely right that you’re not going to get rich overnight. This is building a business so there is definitely a commitment needed on your part. For reference, I did start my business while I was a sophomore in college. I was able to build enough of an income in between juggling classes, work, and a social life. So while it can be done in your spare time, the more time you can devote to your business the better.
