How to create an online business?

Being online means you need a website or a blog you can use to promote your business (hobby, interest, talent, product or service). I know it costs money with hosting and domain names, but I have already thought about that and found the best and the safest solution for you. You do not have to surf through an ocean of offers out there and an ocean of scam sites that does not deliver what they promise.

To start your business with a website is better than starting your business from a Social media account like Facebook, Instagram, You Tube etc, because it is your property and you set the rules not the other way around. Having a business site on social media you are limited by the changing rules and algorithms of the provider on how much you can post, what you can post etc. And it is not your property. However Social media is a good way to promote your website on.

My solution is a highly secure website hosted on the safest servers in the world Siterubix powered by Wealthy Affiliate. They are free of spam, malware and porn. And the best thing is – You can set up your website for free with virus and malware protection and you will get a 7 days trial before you decide if you want to start your online business dream.

If that was not enough – you will get 10 online entrepreneur lessons and 10 Affiliatemarketing lessons for free. It does not stop there, because you will get access to get feedback and comments on your website for free as well and you will get a 7 days access for free to an expert community where you can get expert help.

After the 7 days trial you can make a decision if you want to make your dream of an online business come true or not by becoming a Wealthy Affiliate member. If you can find any offer like this I would love to hear about it. I looked a long time before I found Wealthy Affiliate.

Why did Jelena, Tiffany and Reyhana Succeed?

Jelena is the girl who inspired me to start and who introduced me, without knowing it herself, to Wealthy Affiliate. I read her story on a Pinterest pin I found online. This sparked my curiosity and then my interest in trying out Wealthy affiliate program. Just think about it you can also be able to inspire others with your story without knowing it.

Two years after starting Jelena bought a house and started working full time online.

Read her story here.

Tiffany has several websites and earned from July 2019 – December 2019 $16,203.50

Her commission in June was $1884.00

Reyhana bought a new Mac book in May thanks to Wealthy Affiliate:

My own success story with Wealthy Affiliate just started 5 months ago:

Read my story here

The success stories in Wealthy Affiliate are many on different levels from 1 to seven figures income.

They all have different goals and different commitment to their business.

According to statistics around 50% of online marketers earn less than $20K, 28% earn more than $20K and around 12% of all online marketers earn over $75K

They succeeded because:

– They took action before they were ready and just started.

– They were willing to learn.

– They were not afraid to fail.

– They followed the WA training.

– They changed their mindset.

– They grew stronger, more confident and experienced with practice.

– They asked for help and feedback.

– They love the journey and what they do.

– They did not give up.

You will never feel completely ready to start a business and you will never feel good enough to start. This is very typical excuses we say to ourselves, because we are afraid of change.  I said this too, but you need to start somewhere and learn how to build an online business the right way with training from people who have done this over and over again. You need a community to share your ups and downs with. Wealthy Affiliate is the only community who really delivers on this. You will never know before you really try. Now it is your turn to succeed.

What is stopping you?

Are you to busy? Is it your home situation? Do you have small kids? Is it fear of the future? Is it fear of success? or do you think it is a scam? Fear of failing? Fear of being judged? or other things?

Most wealthy affiliate members are busy people. Many have other jobs too before they can work full time. Some just want it as an extra income stream. It is all about time management. An hour or two every day can take you very far. ( image made in Canva by Daily Practice for success)

Tiffany who I mentioned above has several small kids and still manage to run several websites with a strong determination and will. And it has payed off. She is working hard for her dream.

Is it fear of change or what the future will hold? I know the feeling of not knowing what you are to expect. Insecurity can be a scary feeling. I still do not know if I will reach my goals. They did not know when they started either. But we believe in our dreams and that each step has a value.You must be willing to invest our time in it. Each step will take you closer to the dream and the lifestyle you want. If you never try you will never know.

This is not a scam. Wealthy Affiliate is a strong solid company with founders that are actively helping members to succeed and to give you the best possible frames to work in. For 15+ Years they have helped people succeed online.

Many people never start because they are too afraid to fail and afraid of what people might say. But not you. You are a grown up person who believe in your dream and even if you do not know how to do everything perfect from the start, you are willing to learn how to do it. Am I right?

Here is the Key to your Wealthy Affiliate Success

Remember that everything is difficult from the start. One of my old mentors used to say that all the time. So now I am saying it to you. You will get my methods and help and you will get Wealthy Affiliate training.( image made in Canva by Daily Practice for success)

  1. This is a great review of Wealthy Affiliate and shows the reader, exactly how they can get started for free, then build a successfull online business using the Wealthy Affiliate Platform.

    What is good is that you have laid out, exactly what is required, so the onus is on the reader, to follow and if they are serious in wanting to start online, then your steps will be a good guide as to get there, which if they follow, they wil do so

    1. Author

      Hi Dave! Glad you found it a helpful guide to how to create an online business. I have no intention to make people think making money online is a quick scheme. Quick schemes does not last long. I wanted to present what I think is the best way for a startup or a newbie to start a business online withouth having to pay $3000 – 5000 as you will do with most other platforms when you count the total costs. And a way they can see themselves succeed longterm. When I started in Wealthy Affiliate I could almost feel the success of this blueprint. It amplified every day when I saw how much the members managed to achieve. I was a skeptic at first, but now I have experienced the results of my work too and I have achieved way more than I expected.

  2. Hi Hilde,

    Wealthy Affiliate is a wonderful platform. I signed up in March 2019 and it is one of the best decisions I have made in life. Only on my first free week, I gained so many skills and much knowledge, and even the “technical” website part was explained clearly and made quite easy.

    Being busy is not always a good excuse. We are all busy; the question is, how much time and effort are you willing to put in to achieving your dream? It takes time and it takes much effort, and I liked that you mentioned the point having a longterm mindset. That is important too. Many people give up because they want quick money. setting up a business though does not happen overnight and somehow people tend to approach the internet with a miracles happen mindset. I think that’s why many give up, because the miracles take time to happen.

      Hi Christine! 

      Thank you for giving your helpful insights to Wealthy Affiliate. It is the best decision I have made too. I am glad you mentioned the technical part, because I had no technical skills whatsoever. And now I have learned a lot. 

      Yes We are all good at excusing ourselves, but I believe that if it is important enough for you you will put the effort into it. If you do not it is just not important enough. It is really that simple. 

      If you want it you find the time and you overcome your fear. And as you mentioned many expect things to happen tomorrow or getting everything served on a golden plate when in reality it is a result of consistent work over time, practicing, failing, learning and succeedeng. Consistency and patience is a deed. 

      Nothing will happen if you do not start . And you will get no results if you do not do the work required.

      But the good thing is that Wealthy Affiliate can help anyone who have a wish to succeed making it happen by following the training and doing the tasks. 

  3. Wow! I do not know how to start. I must say i feel very much less anxious about starting an online business after carefully going through this article. Sincerely speaking, i have no single idea of creating and managing an online business, it is definitely beyond my field. 

     Just recently i joined WA after a few talks from a friend to join and start up something new  to achieve my financial freedom goals. I reluctantly joined as a free user,went through a few lessons which i still have not completed yet. After few days i optioned for premium level, still with little or no clue.

     I have tried joining in live chat to learn more and even ask questions, but trust me i usually feel lost with any clue. Even  With all these limitations i have had i still feel very strongly in my spirit that WA is just the right place for me to achieve my goal.. So please how can i make use of the additional training and expert help, like the Jaaxy, for better leverage?

      Hi there and thank you for your insight and questions. 

      First of all I think you made a good decision to join WA Premium. The best thing you can do is to follow the training and do the tasks. The tutorials is very easy to follow and will give you a good explanation. 

      If you have any questions you can go to your profile – not the chat area and ask a question in the questions area. In your dashboard you go to Live events to see Jays videos. These are only for premium members. 

      There is a whole section in the training on how to use Jaaxy – The keyword tool and how you find the best keywords. You might also want to read my review about the Jaaxy Affiliate program

      I am not sure how far you are in the training yet, but go step by step. Do not rush it or skip any tutorials or tasks. It is all there. 

      Just send me a private message inside the WA area and I will help you if you need any help. From what you have written here I do not know exactly what you struggle with, but we will help you figure it out. You can also ask technical questions to help center in your dashboard regarding your website, plugins, HTML codes, Themes etc.

      I hope I answered your questions.

  5. Website building !!

    This is what I was looking for and it seems I’ve found the right place. Digging deeper I see that this I much more affordable than the other affiliate programs I was looking at like Authority Hacker which was a bit out of my price range. Online businesses are what’s going be a thriving in the near future because of lockdown happening around the globe and people aren’t able to work. There is al lot you get with WA that’s unbelievable. I am especially interested in the webinars and keyword research tool Jaaxy.

    Coaching and site feedback are also very helpful. I shall try out the free training courses and afterwards probably join the monthly program. This is just to good of a deal.

      Hi Paolo! Great to hear! Just follow the training and do the tasks and you will do just fine!

  7. Hi Hidle,

    It’s inevitably online business that is booming in view of the surge of internet usage and online spending. Many people would like to try a hand on this business (aka affiliate marketing) but were clueless about how to create a profitable online business. And your guide has explained each step to be taken in order to succeed. 

    Most importantly, you must learn and master the art of online marketing skills besides having the right mindset. I am a student of Wealthy Affiliate and currently runs several niche sites. Honestly, WA is the best platform to learn digital marketing skills and l have no hesitation to recommend it to anyone.

    Great read and would glad to share it.
