Honest Advice!

This isn’t a business with which you will get rich overnight. It needs patience, if you have a plan to get rich overnight, you are at the wrong place and I have written this in my earlier blogs too.

The Tools For Your Business

Are you someone like me who wants to understand the concept of Affiliate Marketing, Building a Website, Deciding what themes could be the best for your business, Understanding how to pick a niche, SEO (Search Engine Optimization), SERP(Search Engine Results Pages), how to implement or start a video promotion, Use the right keywords that will help you generate more traffic on your website, using social media to generate traffic, Email marketing, Podcasting, Webinars, the list is never-ending.

You can now learn this all for free right here with me-

Wealthy Affiliate

A platform where you can find all the above resources to give a kick start to your dream business.

The best of all is that you get to learn for free and have the option to upgrade to Premium.

Am I using premium services?

I am a premium member too and I enjoy all the benefits within the community. There is awesome support within the WA community. You get to learn how to create your website for free and that is how I build my own websites with absolutely no technical skills. Isn’t that great?

You could be of any age group, that doesn’t matter but yea, you need to be 18 years or above to be able to sign up. What if, if you start making money earlier than you turn 18 years and that’s great but you won’t be paid until you have attained the legal documented age.

You have the option to sign up under your parent’s name or someone who is 18 years or above.

I am not going to be writing a review about WA at the moment but this is going to be out soon. This will give you a chance to know more about the courses, community, training, webinars and there are loads to it.

Begin With A Website

A website but why? Can’t I do this without a Website?

Well, it’s No! Do it professionally if you would like to, it doesn’t cost you much. When you go and start a business what you do first other than having an idea or a product, you either have space already or try to find some space to sell your products that’s what a website is.

Let’s call this a source to make you money. A source to get you connected to your customers.

Let’s begin with a free option.

SiteRubix


Did I buy my website domain name from them? Yes, I did. I started a website and learned how to build a website with WordPress and exported the data from this website and then imported my data to an existing website-www.learn2earnmoneyonline.com. It’s a very simple process.

You can sign up here for a free website right now, right here.

HostGator– Offer # 2,

I have used Hostgator as well and if I have to recommend something out of WA, then I would highly recommend Hostgator. If you think that you don’t want to be a part of the community at WA and want to source your

The domain name from somewhere outside then HostGator has to be the option.

The reason for this is- you get almost similar features like SiteRubix and it’s really simple to put into place.

So, if you are thinking to start writing a blog or planning to begin your journey in the Internet Marketing then both of these are the highly recommended options.

I have tried other options too over the period of time. I bought 2 domains from Godaddy and 1 from BlueHost too. And I really don’t have anything to write bad about these 2 either. It just narrows down to the recommendations or personal preferences.

Some of the additional features you get with Hostgator- Free migration from another hosting, Domain, SSL certificate, A dedicated IP with amazing customer service support.

BlueHost– Offer # 3


Offer number 3 is the BlueHost. As I wrote above, I bought a domain from the BlueHost too. There is not much difference in the cost but it comes down to the services. The only reason, these recommendations are here because of the services they have offered.

 

 

Welcome to the Internet World!

 

Now that you have bought a Domain name for your Website, let’s find out the best hosting platform.

You can choose to buy the hosting from HostGator at the same time as your purchase of the Domain name. In fact, I would suggest that since this is your first ever Website, don’t get into too much of the technical stuff. (Just trying to make the things easier & simple for you all)

Select a Free WordPress Theme.

 

I really want you to save the money and wouldn’t recommend spending extra bits of money on purchasing a theme from outside. WordPress offers 100’s of options in themes and you can choose from different layouts. You might want to upgrade later to the Pro options and I will recommend you a theme that is easier to build.

(Personal experience- I bought a theme that cost me $49 USD but it was very complicated. So, I thought to learn the basics first and then making a move.)

What is the layout?

It is a way in which you would plan to see your website or the way in which your website is shown to the World. You can play around and select from multiple theme options. And spend some time before you move further, plan a layout in your head or on a piece of paper, how do you want your website to look like?

This provides a structure for your planned activities. I missed this point and was suggested by a friend but I ignored his advice. Not actually ignored but I wasn’t sure of the layout or what I really wanted on my website. It could have saved me time & efforts to build it properly.

You want to make sure that every cent is saved. Every cent saved is equivalent to money made. You will learn things gradually.

There are a lot of theme options(more than 2500 free themes) available for you to select within the WA community. Still, if you would like to select a theme. I would recommend using Generatepress.

Time to build your Website.

Honestly, the only investment you would be making is towards buying a domain and the hosting to start with. That is it!

I am here to help you start your online business and once that is started, your thanks and appreciation would be the best gift back to me.

You get these lessons for free and have the option of upgrading to premium as well (highly recommended). Am I using premium- Of course. That is how I am learning with absolutely no background in Digital Marketing. Today, I am writing like a Pro. It’s a dream come true for me.

Some people/students spend thousands of dollars learning and yet there isn’t any guarantee to make income but with this, you get the Income opportunity while you learn.

Isn’t that what you really want?

EARN WHILE YOU LEARN

What is SEO? (Search Engine Optimization)

Learn more about SEO by clicking the above link, it will take you to Wikipedia.

There are millions of websites out there and each website is fighting to rank first on Google, understand it in this way. SEO helps in the ranking of your website without any paid ads (google or bing ads). I am going to be offering you some of the free tools with the help of which you can increase traffic on your website and get your website and content indexed with Google.

Don’t Miss These SEO Tools.

These are free but that doesn’t mean these are useless, they are a must for your website.

Increase website traffic by using these tools.

Jaxxy– Search free keywords using Jaxxy.


Google Search console also referred to as Google Webmaster– Must have a Gmail account and this is available for free.

Google Analytics– free with Gmail account.

The above 2 are- Google Analytics and search console is a must.

W3 Total Cache– highly recommended.

Where Can I find the graphics/images for my website?

You can use the below-mentioned sources.

Pixabay 

Canva

I know you were a bit worried about finding the graphics or the images for your website and the content. That’s what I asked myself when I started. There are thousands of free photos available on Pixabay and there are several options from creating a logo to poster or a thumbnail using Canva.

I have sorted you out, you don’t need a graphic designer now.

Cool, isn’t that!

Make A Move- Say No To Fear

Alright, alright LK (by the way, that’s me- a shorter version of my name- Luv Khattar) we know that you have helped with some of the great tools and we have started our business as well but we find writing really scary. English isn’t our first language and we can’t write really lengthy blogs like you.

Hey guys,

Wait!

You know what- English isn’t my first language either and I know this thing that there will be many people around like me who might say- we are inspired and we have got a website but we can’t write the blogs. Don’t worry, what are you saying- don’t worry this is our concern. Let me help you overcome this struggle as well.

I am leaving a link for you here to check out my another blog-

How to write a blog- English is my second language?

I have shared my experience with you exactly the way I started.

I don’t mind sharing another easier ways but that will actually start you costing money. The idea is to get better with this first and start to make some money and later you can think about using the below-mentioned services.

Have you heard about?

Upwork & FreeLancers- Find the freelancers here.

 

 

You can outsource your work using Freelancer. In this way, someone can create the blogs/articles for you that you can publish on your website but as I said, this will cost you money. And before you start to do so, I will recommend you to start writing your own blogs for at least 6 months. In this way, you will get an idea about your audience, what they want and why they want it?

The only reason behind this is that you can ask what you want from the content writer. Don’t Prove But Improve.

Mindset Plays An Important Role

I have worked on my mindset and my friends and peers describe me as a self-motivated individual. And I describe myself as-

I Am A Dynamo Of Motivation!

How is that possible, where do I get my motivation from?

I will recommend you some of the life-changing books that you must read before you start any work.

How To Win Friends & Influence People

Rich Dad & Poor Dad

Elon Musk

Think and grow rich

The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: Powerful Lessons in Personal Change

You Can Win

The above-mentioned books have been tremendously helpful to me in building my mindset and working towards achieving my goals. And I want you to invest in something that really helps you build your business. I don’t want to push you towards anything that isn’t going to help you get closer to your success tomorrow.

These recommended books are like energy tonics that you will be needing over the due course of your journey. The moment you think quitting is the option- No, go back and start reading these books. And remember why you started.

Let’s do a quick summary of what you really need to begin your online business.

A Domain Name

Hosting platform

Install Free themes

Recommended SEO Tools – available for free.

A book – that shouldn’t cost you much.

The best investment you can ever make is into your self-development. Don’t skip the plan. Invest in the above-mentioned business start-up kits. Even if you miss on one of the above, the success isn’t guaranteed.

Content is the king

Quality content, it may take time but don’t lose your hope. I am not a born writer. I am doing mistakes and I am learning from my mistakes. It is completely acceptable to commit mistakes. The best thing is if you won’t do the mistakes, you won’t learn. There is nothing right or wrong. Even the best writers can do blunders. Learning is important!

I have heard many marketers saying- Don’t compromise on the quality.

Hey- wait!

How did you learn?

Are you saying that the day you started, you started with the utmost perfection in your job?

The answer is – No.

You thrive towards becoming better every day.

Use Free Marketing Strategies

Use Social Media Marketing to start with. That is free.

Upon the completion of your website and after putting some content on your website, marketing is the key. Use Social Media platforms like Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, Twitter or Pinterest to start with.

Email Marketing

You can make the best use of the email marketing to shout out loud that you have to build your website and it’s the time to promote your website to the World. Ask your friends and family to share a word about your work and ask them to write comments on your blogs, products or services and what you have to offer.

The honest reviews will help you gain business and guess what, you are getting closer to achieving success.

YouTube Videos- Highly recommended.

 

You must need these items below to start your YouTube channel and you can click on the links below and this will take you straight to Amazon.

  1. Camera- Canon EOS Rebel T6 Digital SLR Camera Kit with EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 is II Lens, Built-in WiFi and NFC – Black (Renewed)

What’s my purpose?

My only purpose is to provide honest and legit information to the people and guide them in the right direction and help them find a better future for themselves. I remember my old days when I was looking for a mentor who could help me find the right direction in life and helped me understand my strengths. And based on my strengths, I could have done really well and my time would have not been wasted this way.

Lessons Learned From The Past

Now I am here to help and guide people to make informed decisions in life with the help of which their journey may become easier yet successful.

Blessing In Disguise

I feel blessed in some way that I give honest advice to anyone who comes to me and here I am to provide my honest advice to people in bringing a positive change in their life.

Learning helps you grow, don’t stop learning.

Success demands a step, an effort, compromise, and a sacrifice. Are you ready for that?

Begin your journey now!

All the very best,

Your write up was educative.

Ramos · August 27, 2019 at 11:26 am

Oh! What more could I ask for to begin my journey as an affiliate marketer that you have not included in your article here? Simply nothing. Thanks so much for sharing all these important tools that would help to get my business up and running. I know of wealthy Affiliate already and I’m already a member and I also know about siterubix and jaxxy too. But those ate the only three I know of out of the list you have compiled. Thanks so much, I’ll firstly check out canva because I need some great designs for my site.

I went online thinking this could be my way of taking a shortcut from the usual route starting a traditional business, earning a little but saving diligently for 40 years, and by that time I will become a millionaire. To an adventurous person like me, the old route is too slow and that I must look for an alternative on the Internet that’s capable of getting me rich quick overnight. 

And I was wrong. Like you said, this business won’t get you rich overnight. That honest revelation is a sign that the offers here are legit, so for anyone looking for a mentor, for anyone looking for a legit way of making money online, they’re in the right place.

Before, a person wanting to start an online business have to figure out all the things, from starting a website with HTML codes, to marketing the business online which often end them up spamming the Internet. Today, beginners are lucky, they not only have good mentors, but proven business models they can use or follow.

ROBERT JONES JR · August 27, 2019 at 11:36 am

Wow comprehensive, informative and motivating! the information in your post is very helpful. I was Contemplating starting doing you tube videos and was not sure on what I needed and how to start. 

But your post has given me ideas and information I never thought of! Thanks for this post! Where is the best place to buy the camera sound and lighting equipment?

Is there a place where I can purchase used equipment?

    Luv Khattar · August 27, 2019 at 12:17 pm

    Hi Robert, thanks for commenting. You can buy the camera and other types of equipment required using the links that I have provided under the YouTube section(Click on the Cannon camera link & other links/descriptions). I have recommended having a Cannon camera, to begin with, and I am sure that you will love not only using it for video but also, the images that it produces. Really easy to put into use.

Hi Luv,

This is a great review of free tools for online business.

It covers various prestigious and respectable resources including the free starter program of WA. 

As a free starter at WA, you could ask questions to the community (via live chat!) for the 1st seven days as a free starter. This helps the person to get a better idea of what they are really looking for and what is actually available to them.

Earn while you earn for premium members is where you can be commentator to earn money. Many people are using that money to buy domain names and paying towards membership.

I truly love your book recommendations. I will buy or get them from the library.

Thank you for your genuine help many who are looking for mentorship and help to build an online business. This post will be a motivation for others.

    Luv Khattar · August 27, 2019 at 12:51 pm

    Hello Anusuya, 

    Thank you for the comment!

water life · August 27, 2019 at 9:56 pm

I have recently become a premium member of the Wealthy Affiliate community and am very fortunate to have it. Your article contains just about everything anyone should know to create a website on WA. I know about WordPress, SEO, Siterubix. I will study about Jaaxy. Very nice info. 

My personal opinion is that anyone who subscribes to WA has to be patient and wait after hard work to enjoy his profits in the distant future. You do not need to rush and not give up because it is worth the effort.

Good luck.
