Getting Started

If you want to get started, you’re already half way there! Because you are taking action.

Somebody once said: “If you don’t pick up a pencil that is laying on the ground, it’s not going to jump on the table itself.” Just kidding, I just made that up. BUT, we can learn a lesson out of it…

Don’t expect to become successful without doing anything. Just sitting around and sticking to your 9 to 5 job won’t let you achieve financial freedom. In order to achieve financial freedom, you need to learn and take action! So pick up that pencil, and start writing your success story.

I’m here to show you how to start an online business and how to make money online from home or from anywhere else, because searching for succes without being active online is very hard and maybe even impossible nowadays.

Why you should not search for online succes

      

I have no idea! If you think there’s a reason I’d be glad to hear it from you. Making money online has many many profits:

  • You can work when you want, and how you want
  • You can earn a revenue while asleep
  • You have a massive public online, more than 3 BILLION people
  • Not that hard to achieve
  • You have lot’s of options
  • It’s very exciting!

What we need to understand is, you can not make serious money online without having a website. I mean, what’s holding you back from making one? You don’t have the know-how to make your professional website? You don’t know what to make your website about? Or maybe, you might not have the money to set up a professional website? Believe me none of that is a problem. Making a website is really not that hard.

There are many platforms that can learn you how to do all of that, and some of them are really free. Like Wealthy Affiliate for example. It’s a great online university that shows you how you can set up a website from scratch from beginners level to professional Online Marketeer. It’s an online university, which is nothing like a University like we know it. You can check the courses whenever you want (=> working whenever you want) and they are very well structured. That’s where I learned almost everything about Affiliate Marketing and how to do it. They basically teached me how to make money online, they have everything you need:

1) They have help

This is one of the most important things for me. You probably know that feeling when you get stuck somewhere and you can’t proceed because of all the questions you have… At Wealthy Affiliate you have an amazing community to whom you can ask your questions 24/7. There are many very well structured video tutorials that show you how to proceed when you’re stuck somewhere.

2) They have a website

No website, no succes. That’s how it is now. But that’s not a problem for us, because you can start your website of your own in just a few minutes from now. That’s right, your own website. You can make your own website for free in about 30 seconds maybe. That’s how I started. Maybe you have already heard about wix websites or weebly, but the best websitebuilder is WordPress and you’ll find that out yourself.

3) They have useful information and Feedback

When your building your website, you get feedback while making it. This way your website can improve in the making. Building your online succes at WA was for me like having training wheels on while learning how to ride a bike. And the more I learned.. The less I needed those training wheels.

“A website is the core foundation of your online succes”

Getting started for O$…

       

So what we know now is: in order to succeed you need help, a website, and training.

All of this for zitch.. nada.. 0$.. There are a lot of online platforms that make you believe you can make your own website for free, but not with all this kind of support and help… you can’t find it somewhere else and, I looked it into. Unless you consult 10 website with all the different kinds of information but that’s not efficient. You’ll get tired of it and quit. But that’s not how it works.. at Wealthy Affiliate, we don’t quit.. We solve the problem and keep going until we achieve what where’s looking for.

This comes from a member of Wealthy Affiliate. I’m not a co-owner or something but I am so positive about this amazing community that I had to share it!

    I honestly thought starting a business online required a lot of knowledge about technical things. But I am learning that it has become much simpler to do so these days. What tool would you recommend to help build a website. I see that you mention this wealthy affiliate, it looks like a great community and I am interested in learning more. Thanks!

      Hey Ralph,

      Well it does require some knowledge, but not as much as it used to back in the days. You can find the information you need all over the internet, but at Wealthy Affiliate, you have it all organized and structured. You can start from Level 1 and end up a Professional in the field. And the best thing is, you can “work” whenever you want!

      I’ve used some WebsiteBuilders, and I find WordPress the BEST websitebuilder you have online (which is Siterubix inside WA). It gives you a lot of opportunities and you get thousands of themes for FREE.

      It sure is a GREAT Community! you can just click on “Let me Get Started“, set up a totally free account and see what Wealthy Affiliate is all about!

      Get back to me if you need a hand or anything,

      Your friend,

    Hey, did you happen to make this particular website by using Wealthy Affiliate? I think it has a really nice look to it – simple, yet elegant.

    I tried starting my own website a few years ago, but I really struggled with it since I was totally new to it. The hardest part for me was the design of the whole thing. With all the different colors, styles, and fonts it can get pretty overwhelming!

    Does Wealthy Affiliate go over things like good website design principles? You mentioned they give a lot of training so I was just wondering if they covered that topic as well.

    Thanks!

      Hey Nick,

      I sure did, and thanks!

      I completely understand why you got overwhelmed, because the same thing happened to me. But I learned the do’s and don’t for this subject simply by trying new looks and designs every time again, until I found a way that works for me.

      And indeed, at Wealthy Affiliate they tell and show you how your website should look. There are many trainings and everything is taught step by step. And on top of that, they have a platform called Site Feedback. Everyone get’s professional feedback on their website. And you can choose the kind of feedback you want. Feedback on the content, on design and look, or overall feedback.

      It’s really the best place I know. Check it out and get in touch with me, I’d be glad to help you out!

      Your pal,
