How to Make Money Online For a Beginner

As a beginner to online marketing, it can be quite mind boggling the amount of businesses you come across as you research to start something, part time, beside what you are currently doing.

I want to give you a few tips on things to look out for and an idea that I think is great for someone who is very new to the online world.

Tips on What to do While Researching

If you do find something you are interested in, make sure you check out Reviews on the company.  I have a really good beginners guide here of important things to check out on your journey of how to make money online for a beginner.

I also have a page dedicated to Reviews, so check this out too, as it will give you an idea of what information should be provided in a review to get you fully informed.

Also be checking out the owner/s of the company to make sure they are reputable. If they have done wrong by anyone, you will definitely learn all about it online – somewhere!

Ideally look for things that you can sign in for free to check out.  Alot of MLM’s do not do this and only give you a company video to look at, however if you can get inside “behind the curtains,” so to speak, then do it.

Too many MLM companies get you in on a cheap product then on your way in they are upselling you left, right and centre.  Or you bought in at say a $500 product because all the “Testimonials” quote how there life has changed because of this product.  However, you get in and the reason they are earning the big $$$ is because there are higher ticket products in the tens of thousands to buy and sell – and that is where the “big” money is made.

So be very wary of this tactic when joining a business, and learn everything there is to know about the Company, the products etc (inside and out), so you get no surprises along the way.

An Idea to Make Money Online as a Beginner

In one word blogging.  In two, Affiliate to make money online for a beginner

AAARGGGHH!  You say, (or not!)

But hear me out here.

Imagine instead of throwing money at this MLM or that one, (yip I can probably guarantee you will try more than one and spend a ton of money doing it – not to mention advertising costs!)  but just imagine you could have a website online.

You are putting up content in the form of blog posts – just like this one – however, it is to a niche, a more targeted group of people.  And you are writing about something you really enjoy, which then makes doing these blog posts a lot more fun, because you like and know what you are talking about.

And How to Make Money Online for a Beginner?

Well, the people who are visiting your site, are enjoying what they read because it is specific to what they are looking for online.  They become repeat visitors because you are providing value, answers and solutions to their problems.

And in time they will either join you, or be directed to products or other things (affiliated to you) because you suggested it, which is where the whole Affiliate Marketing comes into play.  And because it is a good solution to what they were looking for.  (As an affiliate to products online you get from 1% to 75% of the sale).

My No. 1 Recommendation

wealthy-affiliateBottom line and from years of experience online, and without hesitation – Wealthy Affiliate.  Check out My Honest Review here.

Why I think this is a really good option for a beginner is because you are in a place where you have not spent thousands to enter into an MLM and bought into their big compensation plan promise.

You would not have spent thousands on advertising $$$ that you could not afford either.  These are huge mistakes I have made and if you are not careful you could make the same too.

With Wealthy Affiliate, you are taught step by step how to get your posts ranked onto Google Page 1.  As I said earlier, you have a Website that is “niche specific” so you have material for a target audience.

And what I love the most about all my efforts with this “blogging” thing,  is every post has the best chance of making page 1 of Google.  As your site ranks better over time, so do your posts which means free advertising, ongoing, forever.

And all of this, and everything you need to know to do this, is with this platform Wealthy Affiliate – sign in here for Free to check us out!

  1. Hi Sharon. Thank you for the interesting post. I have checked Wealthy Affiliate and it seems like a legitimate website to provide courses for making money online through affiliate marketing.

    I was told that Amazon has the best affiliate program. However with its recent commision cut for many niches, do you still think learning how to do affiliate marketing is worth the effort?

    I look forward to your reply. Thanks

    • Hi Ian,

      Yes it is very legitimate and affiliate marketing will always be worth it.! There are so many niches and so many ways to make money!

  2. Great tips and tools on how to make money online, I am also a beginner and wealthy affiliate has been a god send for me and just like you i would recommend it to anyone and everyone! Some websites are a scam and they will put you in a disillusion that making money online is easy whereas wealthy affiliate requires your time and effort just like everything in the world! great advise on wealthy affiliate – thanks!

    • Thanks for that Dhanraj, Yes I highly recommend it that is for sure. It does take time and effort however you are rewarded in the long run. An exciting place to be. Thanks for you comments and stopping by

  3. You provide an excellent strategy on how to conduct research for online business, Sharon. All too often people get caught up in the emotion and the excitement that they jump in without really having a full understanding of all that is involved. I’m definitely guilty of this; luckily I was fortunate enough not to have lost a lot of money just my ego.

    One of the big warning signs for me it’s when they have a clock ticking and this great opportunity is only good for a certain amount of time. I’ve heard it said many times before and it’s a motto I sick with: if it’s good today it’s good tomorrow.

    Thanks for sharing these tip, Sharon!

    • Hi Veronica,

      Good on you sticking with that motto and not losing money. Wish I had of been like that but you live and learn I guess. Now I know I am truly in the right place. Thanks for your comments

      Cheers, Sharon

  4. Hi Sharon. A very interesting post on how to make money online. You mention really good points about Wealthy Affiliate. I have tried out many different platforms and none of them match what WA offers.
    I never thought that ranking on the first page of google was even possible for a newbie.
    Thanks for the great advice.

    • Hi Tushar,

      Yeah I know, ranking on page 1 is awesome and something I always wanted to do. Now I know it is possible and I my next goal is to get 20 up there! And then more from there!! Why not, we know how to do it here!

  5. Hi Sharon,

    Thanks for the great article. I want to make money online but I didn’t know where to begin until I came across your article. Thanks for all the great tips and advice. I decided to give Wealthy Affiliates a try. I just joined up and I’m getting ready to start the first course.

    Thanks again,


  6. Brilliant post! You give some really good advice here, and without question this post is going to seriously help people to avoid MLM and general online scams. Also I wholeheartedly agree that Wealthy Affiliate is the best place online to start building experience about affiliate marketing.

    Have you found any other really good online money making/coaching systems?

    • Hi Marley,

      Thanks for your comments and I do hope it assists someone! And yes, Wealthy Affiliate is the way to go. I was part of another coaching system however I found it was very expensive and too many upsells within the system and why I opted for this one.

  7. Great !!
    As a beginner we don’t always know how to search and what’s suitable for starters. We rush in quick make money scheme which always end up in tears and huge disappointment. As beginners we not always ready to spend lot of cash, is it possible to get free membership for starters? If yes then I will definitely go for wealthy affiliate!
    Thanks for sharing !

    • Yes you are very right. Inexperienced people to online business can waste alot of money and time. Wealthy Affiliate has it all and really saves alot of heartache trying to do it the hard way with mlms and the like. Thanks for your comments and stopping by!

  8. Hi there,
    This is an awesome post about online busines opportunities and the most satisfactory element of this is that, price wise…its well within peoples range or budget.
    When you give them a price for WA, at least they know there are no upsells and they can rely on that information as being credible.
    So many business out there today are always mis-selling to people and there is no regulation to expose them or to identify who they are.
    With WA there is real credibility and also the reviews are genuine and above all, they are all positive
    Best wishes on your journey with WA
    Cheers…………Phil Browne.

    • Hi Phil.

      yes alot of businesses are misleading and you have bought into things that you just don’t need! WA is so affordable. it is up to one’s effort. But that is the same in any business, you have to work at it, however WA doesn’t come with the hefty price tag.

  9. Hi Sharon.
    What a great post.
    It is very informative and straight to the point, which makes it easier to understand, and you have chosen some great images to illustrate your point.
    I have tried a few different programs, but there is no doubt in my mind that I have found the right one in Wealthy Affiliate.

    Keep up the god work.

    • Hi there

      Thanks for stopping by and your comments. Yes I have tried many myself and there is nothing like Wealthy Affiliate!
