How to Earn Honest Money from Home

      4 Comments on How to Earn Honest Money from Home



Well, it’s easy to lose faith with so many DISHONEST online businesses out there. I know that because I have lost a considerable sum of my hard-earned money on them! I also review online businesses on this website so I know there are so many dishonest “opportunities” that pop up and some of them are even frauds.

Fortunate there are honest ways to earn money from home but it will not make you quick money or money without working hard and learn!

So what do I recommend?

A company that:

  • has been alive and successful for many years
  • has owners and leaders that are active and easy to contact
  • is free to try as long as you like
  • has many ways to get quick help if you get stuck
  • offers a business that can be completely managed from home
  • have all the tools and training you need to build and manage your business online

One company that I recommend and has the above requirements is Wealthy Affiliate.

Wealthy Affiliate (WA) will NOT make you money if you DON’T use the tools and training available in there.

I have now been a member of WA for a couple of years and still haven’t met a member that has managed to make money just by being a member. All the successful members on WA that did the necessary work and are now successful are all saying the same thing…WA is great but you have to do the work to succeed.

It’s really no use having the best training and not use it, just as it is no use to have a fitness membership and never attending. It does require work from YOU.

Many “opportunities,” says they have some kind of automatic system to make money, don’t fall for that! There is no automatic way to make money online without working.


I am a proud member of WA and I believe in the training provided in there. So much so that I have since become an affiliate at WA. Someone might think that “Ok, so that’s why you’re saying Wealthy Affiliate is great…only because you’re an affiliate of it and want to make money by promoting WA?”


As you can see on my About Me Page I have this website to help people find an honest way to earn online and to review online businesses and warn about the dishonest ones. I never recommend anything if I don’t trust it myself!

Just go and try it out for free and I won’t be making any money off you…but if you like it, then go ahead and go for the premium choice which actually will be discounted for you for the first month if you join from this page.

So WHY do I want people to work from home?

– Better for the environment (fewer people that commute)

– Less stress in the traffic (fewer people and cars queuing)

– More time for partners, family, home pets etc.

– More flexible work (work when you work best)

I think a lot of jobs could be handled from home but that’s another story…back to WA.


What’s really great is that WA will give you enough time to find out how great and unique it actually is before you ever pay anything in there but I am sure that if you’re really interested in having your own online business, then you will see that there is no other place like WA.

So how does WA work and what are you supposed to do?

This is the steps you will take need to take in WA – but don’t worry you get all the help you need along the way.

1. Find your interest

Are you interested or even passionate about something?


All of us have some kind of interest or something that gets us interested or passionate. Every idea could be something you can use online and be something that you will get help to build with WA. If you are interested in lamps it could be the beginning of your topic for your website and what your future online business would be build of.

Because there are so many people online (see more below) you can choose whatever you like and still be successful.

If you have trouble choosing an interest you don’t have to worry because you will learn how to find or choose interests presented by WA so you don’t have to have any experience. Something I recommend is to choose something you find interesting and/or fun because you are more likely to do a better job if you do something you like 🙂

2. Build your Website

Do you think this sounds time-consuming, boring or hard?

Then you have no worries when it comes to building your website at Wealthy Affiliate. It’s simple and quick. The process takes less than 30 seconds to build a beautiful looking, mobile-ready, and revenue ready website. Your website is going to be the foundation of your business and what will ultimately lead to a successful venture.

Think of your website as your “storefront” for your business. All activity and all revenue will be generated as a result of your website and there are MANY ways you can generate this revenue. We are going to teach you all about that!

What’s cool with WA is that you have access to one of the most advanced website and hosting platform out there. I will not go into detail here but the platform is built so everyone from techies to newbies should be satisfied.


You can even offer customers something called “managed hosting” on this platform if you have an online business that offers this kind of services (I do that on another website).

3. Get your Visitors

Before you can make any money on your website you have to attract visitors (people) to your website. Without these visitors, you actually have nobody to sell or advertise to… This is crucial for your online business.

Already in the beginning lessons in WA, you will be learning to most current ways to drive traffic in an honest and ethical way and how you get relevant visitors through rankings in all the major search engines…like Google, Bing & Yahoo.

Internet users chart

As you can see in the chart above there are estimated that there were 3.75 BILLION active Internet users in 2017 that was searching for information, looking for solutions to their problems, and purchasing products/services. It’s there you will find your visitors and potential customers.

If you drive it to the edge it’s when you realize how to make money on those visitors you will hold the answer to create and grow a business in any “niche” or interest of your choice.

WA will help you make a business out of the most current traffic methods, from Search Engine Optimization (SEO), to Social Media and Pay Per Click (PTC). WA will provide you with one of the world’s most advanced set of tools and give you full access to a community network with marketing experts, web development experts and more.

4. Earn Honest Money from Home

Once you have visitors (traffic), one way you can make money from your website is through special programs called “affiliate programs” which always are free to join.

Affiliate programs allow you to promote anything you can imagine without having to own or create a product yourself. No costly inventory, no shipping, no product support. And you can be located and manage your business from anywhere in the world.

As an affiliate marketer, you will send the traffic to the company website and they will pay you a commission of up to 75% if your visitors buy something.

Just one example of many is to become an “affiliate” of a big merchandiser like If you become an affiliate, you can promote over hundreds of millions of products on Amazon and earn a commission of 6-10% so that means that one single referral can lead to $1,000’s in commissions to you!

Amazon is just one of those examples, there are over hundred of thousand affiliate programs out there that you can join and almost every product you can imagine has an affiliate program.

As an affiliate, you are going to be asked for, in particular with the skill set you are going to get from WA!

If we look at 2017 in this chart the affiliate marketing world was estimated to make over $4,9 billion so in any way, we can conclude that is a massive growth in sales and what’s interesting is that some of the greatest affiliate marketers actually are members of WA 🙂

Affiliate spending chart

For every year affiliate spending online continues to rise and affiliate marketers continuing to see explosive growth in their businesses online. Wouldn’t you be willing to take advantage of this growth and become a part of the network community that is called Wealthy Affiliate?

What Products or Services Can You Promote as an Affiliate?

There is really no limit to what products or services you can promote as an affiliate online. If you think about it, there are MILLIONS of products and services. Here are a few example products that you can promote as an affiliate and get affiliate commission:

  • Cars
  • Mobiles
  • Helmets
  • Baby Gyms
  • Coffee machines
  • Lamps
  • Tablets
  • Shoes

What’s even more fun is that there could be millions of different types of any product. Just to name something you can think of lamps…there are garden lamps, table lamps, floor stand lamps, big lamps, small lamps, green lamps etc. etc. Just search on lamps on Amazon and you will found a hundred of thousands of lamps and you can earn commissions for promoting any one of them!

That is just one of the affiliate programs of many others…


Once you understand how this process works and how to get traffic, there are a lot of other ways in which you can make money from your website. WA will teach you all about the right techniques to build, and scale your online business!


Now that you know how to earn honest money from home you just need to START!

The hardest thing is to start but you got absolutely nothing to lose because it’s FREE to start!

      Hi, John and thanks for your comment!
      I agree with you on that you really have everything to build your online business in WA.
      Of course, it’s hard work but hard work also gets you a great satisfaction when something works out!
      There are so many “opportunities” out there with expensive internet marketing gurus and dishonest businesses that just want to make as much money from you as possible without giving you anything of value back.
      Today I actually watched a “free” webinar on how to expand your email list and the person who spoke was supposed to talk about how you could do this in his way for free.
      At the end (after one hour) it was clear that he was only buying Facebook ads to get traffic to his capture page and in that way building his list.
      The scary part was that he wanted $2999 to show us how he steps by step do it and pay the Facebook ads through his “recommended” agency.
      Take care!
      Regards Jan

    I know people who have made very good money with this program but they did have to work consistently and keep at it when others quit. I think it’s what you make it. Those who scoff at making money online are either misinformed or just don’t have the patience to see it through. Good post here.

    Hi, David and thanks for your comment!

    That’s absolutely right…there’s been a lot of times when I thought about quitting but I think it’s a part of the process that we all must learn to overcome and handle.

    There are so many that want their own online business but don’t want to spend any time or money on it….well if you put nothing in it you will get nothing out of it.

    With that said, I have seen some members at WA earning their first affiliate income in a couple of months but that’s nothing you should count on.

    Regards, Jan
