Getting Started Online

**There may be affiliate links included in the following post which means I may make a small commission if you choose to make a purchase through any of these links. You pay the same either way, so it is a win-win situation! You can read the full disclosure here.**

What if I told you that you could work anywhere and anytime and that there are plenty of jobs waiting to be taken? I am not joking.

Work Anywhere and Anytime
Work Anywhere and Anytime

There are opportunities to work anywhere that you are comfortable – be it in your living room, your office, near the swimming pool, in the park, in a hotel room, on the airplane – anywhere that you can concentrate and have clear thoughts.

And these opportunities can be anytime as well – while the kids are doing their homework, while you are waiting for soccer practice to finish or while the baby is napping.

There are as many opportunities to generate income online as there are ideas in the world… REALLY!

Let Me Help You Get Started

You will need three things:

  • A website

Do you need one? Yes! Some people try to tell you that you don't, but have you ever tried to cook without a kitchen or organize your office without a desk or a filing cabinet?

A website is a place where you can show everyone what you have, how you can help them and what you are offering. It is a place where people can come to ask you questions or discuss things with you. And you can use it in various ways to increase your income.

  • A place to learn what to do

You do need a place to learn what to do. You are going to have to learn how to build a website, put content on it, learn how to keep it up and promote it.

If you want to promote and sell other people's products to get a commission (affiliate marketing) then you will need to learn about affiliate programs, keyword research, article marketing, e-mail marketing, and the likes.

Or if you just want to develop your offline business into an online one, you will need to learn such things as well. Have I lost you already? The fact is, all this and more is simply presented in a step-by-step method with lots of help if you go to the right place.

  • The interest and persistence to keep going until you succeed

Without it, you will never get anywhere – the place I am referring to is not a quick riches program. It is a place where if you diligently apply and practice what you learn, you can succeed. But it is all up to you.

You May Wonder if Such a Program is Available or Affordable

It is! And you can start out spending nothing….. yes, nothing! By joining Wealthy Affiliate with a free starter account, you can get access to:

  • Wealthy Affiliate Sign Up PageThe Beginner Training Course
  • Live Chat
  • Video Walk-Throughs
  • A Personal Affiliate Blog
  • A Keyword Research Tool
  • The Affiliate Program (yes, you can join as an affiliate!)
  • Some of the Training Classrooms and more!

All this plus live support and 1-on-1 coaching for the first 7 days. You even have the option of building 2 WordPress websites. All this for not a cent! You may be wondering what the catch is… all of this for free?

The fact is that Wealthy Affiliate may be a business, but a main part of that business is helping people. That is the culture and the environment promoted there. Why should you invest in something without knowing if you like it or if it works?

  1. You have made the program sound very simple and attractive. Can it really be? I am the type of person that takes things slow and steady. Give me clear directions and time and I can manage. Most training programs make high claims, but don’t deliver. How can I know that this is really worth trying?

    1. Jen, the training in this program is task based and split into digestible amounts of information. The training program itself doesn’t make high claims – if you follow the directions, take action and don’t just read the material, it is possible to build a profitable website. The support is there, you just have to make use of it and apply yourself.

      As far as needing time, you can pace the program according to your own schedule. You don’t have to face pressure from anyone but yourself. People who work 10 to 20 hours a week can often see results in 6 months to a year. If you work slower than that it just takes longer to see results.

      In any case you can try it out for free. So if you want to know if it worth it, just go and take a look for yourself. 🙂

  2. Getting started in a proper online business has never been easier Robin, going back to when I first started online and had to wait for my dial-up connection to kick in makes me laugh now.

    If people would just get their heads right and realize how simple it is now everybody would succeed. The thing is they want instant gratification and if it’s not there in a month their off looking for something else and going through the process all over again.

    I enjoyed reading your post and look forward to more of your content.

    1. I think most people have gone through the learning curve of trying at least one of those Get Rich Quick schemes. But if everyone just had the opportunity to find a place where they could really learn how to do it and then be persistent enough to stick with it till they did, things could be a lot different. I think people also forget that in their normal day job, they don’t get a raise without working for it. So why should you get a ‘raise’ (instant gratification) online without working for it?


  3. As soon as someone has a website, they have the foundation for their online business in place. The great part is that absolutely anyone can get started online, no experience required because of how easy building a website has truly become.

    I can remember it taking me several weeks (if not more) to accomplish what now takes under one minute (literally) to do with the website builder inside of Wealthy Affiliate. The business world has been flattened tremendously through advances in technology and anyone can succeed online that has a little bit of drive and is willing to learn the proper techniques.

    1. Yes and your phrase “no experience required” is a fact which I can vouch for. I would have never dreamed that I could get started as I did. But all the tools including the website builder at Wealthy Affiliate made it easy!
