Hey everyone, this is Clark. Welcome to BecomeWealthyWithMe.com. If you’re interested in creating your own online business (asset), or if you already have a website but are struggling to make money, let me show you where you can get (free) training for beginners at Internet marketing.
By just signing up for a free membership at Wealthy Affiliate, you can have access to the first 10 lessons of each of their two official training courses, the Online Entrepreneur Certification Course and the Affiliate Bootcamp. To access the full training (50 lessons of the Online Entrepreneur Certification Course and 70 lessons of the Affiliate Bootcamp), including the weekly live training videos, the live case studies, etc., you’ll need to pay $30-$50 a month depending on whether you pay monthly or yearly.
Going through the (free lessons of the) Online Entrepreneur Certification Course and then the Affiliate Bootcamp guides you through the process of creating + growing a business online (Internet marketing). Wealthy Affiliate also provides a state-of-the-art website platform with which you can create and host two websites for free, so everything you need to get your online business well on the road is contained within your free membership.
How Do You Become Successful at Internet Marketing?
To achieve great success with your website, first you need to understand the Internet marketing process, which can be broken down into four simple steps:
Step 1 – Select a niche or website topic, and it can be anything that you love or enjoy – traveling, cooking, men’s fashion, exercise, any sport, personal development, weight loss, anything. You’ll be writing and publishing content on your website based on the topic you’ve chosen, and with more than 3 billion people online there can be no shortage of people in any niche.
Step 2 – Create a website, which is your own space or “retail store” online. By publishing quality (meaning relevant, engaging and helpful) content on your website for your visitors, you can quickly build trust with the search engines. You can build and host two free websites using the platform at Wealthy Affiliate, and as you go through the training you can apply what you’ve learnt with these two websites.
Step 3 – Get (lots of) traffic or website visitors (for free). This is done by creating a lot of high-quality posts (content) on your website, which creates trust with the search engines. With trust, when somebody does a search in Google or some other search engine the relevant post(s) on your website will likely show up on page 1 of the search results. If your post is on the first page then it is likely to be read.
Step 4 – Earn money. One of the most popular and rewarding methods is affiliate marketing, where you help other people promote their products on your website and earn commissions. You will learn more about this in the Affiliate Bootcamp, where you learn to promote Wealthy Affiliate. There are also other ways in which to earn money, and one of them is placing advertisements on your website and earning some money each time a visitor clicks on one of your ads.
The key to being successful with Internet marketing is, of course, getting lots of traffic to your website, for more people reading your content = more opportunities for you to earn money. The key to getting lots of traffic was already mentioned above and that is publishing high-quality posts that help your visitors to solve their problems or get what they want.
Also, publish LOTS of quality posts on your website. Although Google and other search engines do not reveal their exact ranking algorithm, it makes sense that you need to have a sufficient number of posts on your website to reach lots of people. If every post you publish gets 5 visits a day, 50 posts would get you 250 visits, 100 posts would get you 500 visits, 200 posts would get you 1,000 visits and so on.
When creating a new post remember to insert your “keyword” somewhere in the post’s title and somewhere in the first paragraph. To know more about keywords, read my post: How to Get Targeted Traffic for Free
