Occasionally I like to do articles on finance. That is because I feel that stress causes you to age, and money is one of the biggest stress factors that affect people today. Nothing will age you as quickly as stress! If I can help you to find ways to make some extra money online, or to make a full-time income online, then I feel that can help with stress relief. Perfect for the true fountain of youth lifestyle.
How about the dot com lifestyle? What does that even mean? What it means is that there is a way to create wealth online by using a website, or a .com (dot com) to make money.
How do you make money from a website? Well, let me show you exactly how to do it, and how to get free online university training from a world-renowned, leading, reputable university called Wealthy Affiliate University. Read on….
Affiliate Marketing is when you sell other people’s (merchants) goods and services on your website, and the merchant pays you a commission for directing people to their site to buy. Pretty simple, but there are many steps to the process, and in order to be successful, you need to follow those steps exactly. I have affiliate agreements with merchants, and you can read my full Affiliate Disclosure here.
Let’s go through the steps to create wealth online and get hooked into the Fountain of Youth Lifestyle to eliminate the stress and worry so many people suffer from due to finances. I’m going to direct you to another website of mine that is CoachingforInternetMarketers.com, and I will be referring you to articles on that site to give you details about the particular areas I will be addressing in this article.
Step 1 – Sign up for the free Wealthy Affiliate University
You will not need any credit card information or debit card information at all to sign up for the Starter membership with Wealthy Affiliate. You will have access to full training on setting up your two free websites (I suggest you only work on one website at a time and get one fully up and running before you venture to add a second website).
Here is an article I wrote about the Wealthy Affiliate platform. It will give you a nice overview of the company and what it can offer someone looking to make money from a website. Take a moment to read it now:
Here is everything that is offered through the Wealthy Affiliate Starter membership. I recommend always starting with the Starter membership. You don’t ever have to upgrade, but once you get up and running, you will want to take advantage of all that is offered in the Premium platform, which is $49. monthly. Take a look:
Step 2 – What is your site going to be about?
There are a few things I want you to think about when it comes to establishing a website online. You need to know what you are going to be writing (blogging) about on your site. You need to solve problems in order to make money online. People are searching for solutions, and you want your website to offer those solutions.
Therefore, think about what your interests are. Do you like cooking, knitting, fixing cars, hiking, shoes, or furniture? Do you want to help people with problems like diabetes, weight-loss, or gardening? Whatever your interest, that is what your “niche” (subject of your website) will be. Choose a niche you are passionate about because you will become immersed in that niche, so you should enjoy writing about it.
Here is an article I wrote about choosing your niche. I suggest you read it now before you continue:
Step 3 – Choose the name of your website
The name of your website is your “domain name.” The domain name for this site is FountainofYouthLifestyle.com. You want to have a name that is easy for people to remember and type into the address bar. You don’t want any dashes like Fountain-of-Youth-Lifestyle.com nor do you want any underscores like Fountain_of_Youth_Lifestyle.com. You just want the words to run together.
I wrote an article all about choosing the domain name for your website. Go ahead and read this before you continue:
Step 4 – Write your content
This is the fun part – writing your content. Here is where you are helping people with problems and becoming the solution to their needs. Another word for writing content is “blogging.” If you have no experience blogging, don’t worry. You’ll get some great training on getting started, and I wrote an article that will help you as well. Check it out here:
Step 4 – Set up affiliate agreements
Once you have established about ten articles (blog posts) on your website, go ahead and apply for some affiliate agreements. You will want to give some thought to products or services that will serve the readers of your niche and solve a problem or offer a service for them.
You will search and contact the merchant who distributes that product. For example, if you are interested in marketing mainstream products, you might want to start with Amazon.com. They are a great company to work with, and they distribute so many products, it makes it very easy to use them.
Always read and comply with the merchant’s affiliate agreement. This is extremely important because they all have different rules about marketing, links, etc. Read them carefully!
Here is an article I wrote about setting up affiliate agreements that you should take a look at:
Step 5 – Make money!
With enough hard work and perseverance, researching and building content on your site, you will start to see results. It does take time to build a successful website, but it is so worth it. You will be helping people find solutions to problems in your niche and providing products and services to assist them in their solutions. It’s a win-win for you and your readers and something you can be proud of and feel good about!
