If you are new to internet marketing I’m sure you’ve got a lot of questions about it, how it works and how you can make money doing it. If you have a question that isn’t listed here then please leave a comment below and I’ll answer you as soon as I can.
How does a person make money online anyway?
There are many ways to go about it, you can build your own niche site, do pay per click, social marketing, email marketing, affiliate marketing and more. Most webmasters use several methods to promote their websites. There are many options that will open up as you go along.
It seems so complicated. How do I learn it all?
There’s definitely a lot to learn, no doubt. It’s the same as learning anything else though, one lesson at a time and keep going. Don’t give up.

What is a niche?
A niche is simply a subject or topic of interest. This a French word pronounced “neesh” not “nitch”.
The “Urban Dictionary” lists a niche as: “A subject or activity that particularly suits somebody’s talents and personality or that somebody can make his or her own”.
A niche is pretty much any hobby, interest or subject you can think of.
How is it possible for a new site to get ranked? There are already a million sites on the internet…
You’ll learn how SEO (Search Engine Optimization) works and learn how to use particular keywords to rank a website highly and quickly. You will learn to achieve top 10 rankings (page 1) more easily than you ever thought possible.
Who would want to read what I write?
You would be surprised how many people out there would love to read what you write. People are interested in people. At the beginning I didn’t think anyone would want to read what I write, but here you are. As well as that, there are hundreds of people a day reading my other sites.
To quote a line from the old movie Field of Dreams: “Build it and they will come“. This is very true when it comes to building a website and acquiring traffic to it.
Where do I buy a domain name?
There are many places to buy domain names. Some of the more popular ones are:
- GoDaddy – expensive and full of upsells
- Name.com – This is my main registrar
- Wealthy Affiliate – Buy your domain directly from within your WA membership
What is an affiliate program?
An affiliate program is how a company tracks, tallies and pays you a commission ($$) when you successfully promote and sell their products and services.
What is an affiliate network?
This is a network with many member companies (advertisers) that have products and services to offer. You, as the affiliate (publisher) joins the network. Then from there you would apply to join the individual companies that participate within it.
Once approved you’ll have access to your affiliate links. The network keeps tally of all the stats, earnings and payments for each of the companies.
Amazon is the largest affiliate program, this one only requires you to join once. There are no secondary applications to member companies to go through.
What is Content Marketing?
Content Marketing is fairly easy to understand. Content is the substance of your website, content is your posts and pages. The keywords that you use in those posts and pages will be used by the search engines to rank the pages of your website.
So, you are using the content of your website to promote and market the selling of products and services through it. This activity consistently done correctly will produce traffic and eventually income. (Everyone’s results are different)
