Today I am gonna show you the 3 simple steps that will help you to make money online from home or even when you are on a beach or on a romantic trip to Paris or wherever as long as you have your laptop and your phone together. Sounds nice?
I know it sounds pretty nice!
Now, before we move on to the main stuff, I want to share the benefits of starting an online business.
The Benefits Of Starting An Online Business in 2019
- You can work from anywhere in the world.
- You are your own boss.
- It is easy to get started and requires only a small amount of money.
- There is no income ceiling.
- It can become passive.
- You can work from anywhere in the world. This means 2 things. First, you have the freedom to choose the place or places where you want to work and secondly, anyone in any country can start an online business. You don’t have to be rich or stay in the US or something like that. This is the real deal. So you can make money online from home wherever this might be. Amazing?
- You are your own boss. You decide for yourself. If you think you are sick or tired you don’t have to go to the office and work 8 hours. You decide how much, when and where you want to work. This is also very very important. You can stay a day completely off or make money online from home. I say it again and again so you understand exactly what this means for your life and your family.
- It is easy to get started and requires only a small amount of money. You can also start to make money online for free (i will tell you all the ways don’t panic), however, only with a few bucks can scale your business faster. The important thing is starting the online business I will tell you for, doesn’t require huge amounts of money upfront to start. For example, if you want to start a traditional business, it will definitely require lots of money upfront.
- There is no income ceiling. Another great advantage of starting an online business is the fact that you can earn an unlimited amount of money. Of course, it will require much effort and time. However, think of it do you want to continue working 9-5 jobs earning anything from 500-2000$ per month depending on the country u live or starting your own business that will earn you as much money as you want in the near future?
- It can become passive. Last but not least, this model of business when u reach your goals can become passive! For example, when you earn X amount of money that you think it is good for you, you can decrease the hours you work or hire employees to work for you.
What Affiliate Marketing is?
After this necessary introduction, let’s jump straight into it!
So, briefly, affiliate marketing is the process in which you promote other people’s products or services and u earn commissions.
A small tip here: There are tons of products or services for you to promote, however my recommendation for the right niche is:
- be passionate for the products you promote
- use them in your life so you have a clear opinion of what you promote
- tell you the truth
- to be a successful internet marketer you have to be clear
- you have to be authentic with your audience.
Promoting something that is not good or that you haven’t tested it, will eventually harm your image in the long run.
Affiliate marketing is not a rich quick scheme. There are no shortcuts. There are only strategies for you to make it as fast as possible.
What you need to get started with affiliate marketing
- First of all, you will need to find the right products for you to promote. I will show you how to find those products in detail in the upcoming blog posts. However, most products online, have affiliate programs and links, so don’t worry. You will need either high-ticket products, for example, a product which costs 500$ and has 20% commission means 100$ for you or products with recurring commissions, therefore, products that buyers pay for every month so you earn commissions every single month, for example, most softwares.
- After the product and niche selection, a website or a funnel is required. With the website, you simply write blog posts providing people with value and solutions to their problems. For example, you now have the question ”how do I earn money online from my home?” and I provide you with the answer you are searching for.
Now, what a marketing funnel is? A marketing funnel is a journey. You may laugh at first glance but it is exactly that. In the starting stages, someone sees your advertisement (an optin page) and becomes aware of it.
Later they may find an interest in what you offer or provide( may subscribe to your channel or social media for example).
After that, they decide that they want to keep watching you and your stuff on a regular basis and at the final stage they trust you, they respect the value you provide for them, understanding that they learned things through you and decide to take action and buy stuff or services you recommend because they trust your opinion.
This procedure is known as warming your audience.
3. The last step in your affiliate marketing journey is to bring traffic to your website or funnel or to both of course. This, when we refer to the website can happen in many ways.
The most inexpensive and efficient way is ranking your website on Google through Search Engine Optimization. This is a huge topic, of course, I will write a whole article on that. In short, we optimize our articles for keywords in order to rank better in google.
This process requires time but it is very efficient because people that come to a blog through google are already warmed up.
Another way of bringing traffic is backlinks. A backlink is a link that links back to your website. For example, I can show you an example linking to Wikipedia. This is called a natural link. Think of Google as a spider.
You need backlinks that link back to your website to rank better and get more traffic. Your articles should link on one another with the method of relevancy.
For instance, if I have an article on ”how to use facebook on 2019” I can somewhere link to another article of mine where I write on ”How to use Pinterest on 2019”, that way driving extra traffic to my blog.
These are 2 free ways of driving traffic to your website or funnel. There are more ways, of course, I will teach you all of them specifically in the following articles because driving traffic on an offer or blog is one of the most important things in affiliate marketing.
These were the 3 simple steps to make money online from home

Anyone can try the methods above, they are easy if you decide to take action and work hard now, to enjoy all the advantages of passive income and online marketing in the near future.
To sum things up, in order to start affiliate marketing you have to choose the products you want to promote, create a blog or a funnel which will be your asset in your whole career as an affiliate marketer and finally drive traffic to your asset.
