The Secret To Making Money Online

Concept-Of-The-Affiliate-MarketingThe concept of making money online is truly as simple as choosing a niche, building a website, and then bringing in traffic to that website. The biggest secret is probably that it takes hard work and dedication to succeed – you won’t find a get rich quick strategy to help you become an overnight success.


What do you think the biggest hurdle is for beginner internet marketers?

For me, the biggest hurdle was finding the right place to start learning the process and finding tools for building my online business. Thankfully, I didn’t struggle for a long time. I quickly found the secret to making money online.

Since time is money, I am going to walk you straight towards success.  I will focus on the process that works.

Everything I know about online marketing, online business, making money online and affiliate marketing I give credit to the Wealthy Affiliate, a platform where you will find a process thoroughly explained step by step. You can check out my review here.

Before you continue your research, here is a small taste just that you can picture yourself making an online income 🙂


Making money online is a straightforward process.  There are several ways to make money online, and the most popular one is affiliate marketing. There are steps to be followed which lead you to success. In the following text, I explain in detail what is affiliate marketing and how to use it as a tool on a journey towards your own financial freedom.

6 STEPS of the secret to making money online:
1. Find an audience
2. Find something interesting to write about
3. Your audience searches for something in Google
4. Your audience visits your website
5. Visitors buy something you recommend to them


Making Money Online Process

  1. You will build the website with a certain theme that you like to talk about.
    Let’s imagine you are a saxophonist like my very good friend is 🙂
  2. You write about JAZZ music and recommend products related to jazz, through the affiliate programs you find on google. These programs will pay you when someone buys their product through your link. There is a concert in New York and you posted the link for the ”NY Jazz Music tickets sale”, a company that has the best tickets deals. Just to be clear, you don’t sell the tickets; you just recommend the best deal.
  3. Your audience is your niche. Those are people all around the world searching on Google for something. Including ME! In this case, I LOVE ALL THAT JAZZ.
  4. I find your website, and I like your style and your articles. Visiting your website becomes my morning routine on a daily basis.
  5. And finally, there is an announcement on your website about the concert in New York. I want to go! Since I already ”know” you and trust your judgment I buy the ticket using your link.
    And guess what happens next?!
    The ”New York Jazz Music tickets sale” paid you for the promotion.


How much is a commission?

Secret-To-Making-Money-OnlineNow I know that you would like to know exactly how much you have just earned. Your income depends on your niche and the products you review and the affiliate programs you find.

The commission goes from $0.50 to hundreds of dollars. If you talk about cruising and promote cruise lines, you will be an affiliate that earns pretty big commissions on cruises sold through your link.

You can be an affiliate for EVERYTHING! For toys, flowers, food, tracks, cars, vacation offers, plane tickets, musical instruments, fashion – literately everything! It’s just about accomplishing your first step which is finding your passion that you like to talk about! Everything else goes smoothly.

Do you see what I mean? Also, it is imperative for you to know that the Internet is the biggest market on planet Earth and that millions of people search for products on a daily basis. And if you promote something that doesn’t pay you much but is in demand then your commission will be $0.50 times a thousand 😉

  1. Hello Sunny, this is a very good post you have written concerning the secret to making money online. I really have to say that the truth is making money online takes hard work which is really the biggest secret of everything. In addition to this, one will also have to put in all you have said earlier about website and all that about niche. Your explanation about niche is great.

  2. I have always thought that making money online required technical skills. I never imagined that just finding an audience and delivering engaging content would be enough. Looking at it this way encourages me to give this a shot. I have some areas of expertise in which I could deliver useful and engaging content. And plus, I’d be doing something I enjoy.

    • Exactly! That’s the point. Share your passion with your audience and success will come as an award to that. 

  3. Some great advice here, and yes you have the secret formula down pat, but it isn’t as easy as it sounds as you have to do a lot of content and keep at it before you see a regular income, and I think this is why so many people fail.

    It is always better if you have somebody or people to coach you to success, and for me, it was also Wealthy Affiliate. Without the training and the great community there, I too would have given up a long time ago.

  4. Thank you so much for sharing with us an interesting and excellent article. The principal content of this article is The Secret To Making Money Online. It is really pretty that you have demonstrated this topic so well in your article. I have learned a lot by reading your article and gained a lot of cognition about it. Of the points mentioned in your article, I like 6 STEPS of the secret to making money. My question to you is how do we find our audience? Also the Wealthy Affiliate Platform you are talking about is really true. This platform will serve as a guide for those who want to make money online.

    Finally, I would like to share in my social media group about those who have read and enjoyed your article so that everyone can know about your Secret Making Money online and have a passive income every month.

    • Hi, basically you find your audience targeting the keywords, networking, and following a training at the Wealthy Affiliate. 

  5. Hi Sunny, everything you’ve written in this article resonates with me 100%. I love the fact that you introduce affiliate marketing as it is, without any flashy promises. I’ve seen many websites with pictures of people waving stacks of banknotes around, or lying on a beach looking way too chilled out. This kind of marketing gives people a very wrong idea about the truth behind online business and they often jump for the opportunity, invest a lot of money into it, and then, after a few months, end up disillusioned and give up. I find it very sad. These people may never want to try again, and thus lose a great opportunity, for example if they come across a great platform like Wealthy Affiliate (that I happen to be a happy part of as well.) But you are doing people a great favour by laying your cards on the table in all transparency and honesty. That means that you can help people stay realistic and develop good discipline, work persistently, and in time start to receive rewards for their hard work. Thanks so much for your post! Lucie

    Needless to say, none of them worked. I became disillusioned, not to mention out of pocket by quite a great deal. I love the way you have presented the overall opportunity and also stressed that it does take hard work. As they say, there is no such thing as a free meal.

    Your use of bullet points has made your post so much easier to read and understand the critical aspects of this misunderstood subject.

    Best wishes

  9. I do like that you’ve emphasized the hard work aspect. This does work – but only if you put in the effort. Do that and it will pay. Don’t do it and… well, you know.

  14. Thank you for your post. It is useful for anyone who is interested in making money online. I agree with your that the biggest secret to making money online is hard work. With this mentality, you are going to dedicate to your online business and overcome the hardship you are going to face in your business.

    I particularly like your description on 6 steps of the secret to making money online, which are straightforward. Affiliate marketing is good place to start. Wealthy Affiliate is a world leader in the affiliate marketing platform, where you have everything you need to succeed your business. The best thing is that it is free to start.

  15. Hi, a great and short article that sums up nice and easy how to make money online. The recipe couldn´t be simpler. The “boring” part must be the waiting game before some money starts to trickle into your account. It is like baking bread, the boring part is waiting for the yeast to start working before you can put the bread into the oven.

    Your description will make a great reference for new entrepreneurs in the digital market.

    Just out of curiosity, I know that it will take time to earn money while you are building your business, but what is the “normal” timeframe” before a newbie usually can expect some income. Let´s say it is a niche that is quite popular?

    • Hi Roy, honestly I would not create any timeframes as “normal” as it is truly individual. 

      Look, if one sits every day and creates 1 post per day, in 400 days will have 400 posts. If someone writes 1 post per month in the same timeframe will have barely 15 posts. 

      Also one can write 400 posts for the sake of writing, with no quality content. 

      I would say, you get as much as you give to your business, following the right training and being consistent is the key.

      There is non-official info going around among the WA members, that their WA websites started making a lot of income when they reached 400 posts of quality content. 

      I would say, the time frame is 400 posts 😉 

      Hope this helps, 


  16. Indeed choosing a niche is the first step of making money, and then building a website and finally early traffic. Sometimes it takes longer than usual to make a sale but once there, things will always become interesting. The best thing of all is finding the right tools indeed for building website. Sometimes finding experts in the area like wealthy affiliate can save

  17. This is a very educating and instructive article you have here, Sunny. I have gained a very useful knowledge from this article. Getting to learn the secret of making money online is very amazing and that is just what I have been able to achieve from reading this article. This is some vital information you have here. Great job!

  18. So I guess, from what I’ve read in this article, it can certainly be variable of how and how much you can make online. It depends on what your individual choices have been in terms of your affiliations and the commissions they offer. Regardless, I’m glad you have shared all this information, I have definitely learned a lot from you and I appreciate this and will apply it for myself and my online quests. Thank you
