It's not possible for someone to hand you money through the screen like you see here – but you can get checks in the mail, money in your Paypal account and direct deposits in your bank account.
Some people even get paid in vacactions, crypto-currency and points… maybe you can tell us how you get paid from your website. We love success stories in the comments!
It's up to you how you want to get paid – and how much you want to get paid. As the CEO of your online business, you choose who you do business with. You choose how and when you get paid.
Making money from a website is a matter of know how –
Most people don't KNOW HOW!
Learning How to Make a Good Website
If there was a step-by-step guide on how to make money from a website – would you want to read it?
I think I've read 100 of them and it depends who wrote it.
What if there was a college course –
Work from Home 101-
Learn everything you need
to make money with a
cellphone and a laptop.
Even that would depend on the professor.
And of course… the cost.
I recently looked at a training course that costs over $17,000 – whoa!
There are people who are willing to pay thousands of dollars for the promise of a better life. Over the years I have spent thousands on my education – not all at one time, though. But I was considering it… because I felt I was missing something that could 10x my income and get my husband out of his factory job.
The formula for making money from a website:
- Put up a website
- Tell your story
- Find a way to help people
- Get Traffic
It works for anyone who is willing to work.
(lazy people cannot be entrepreneurs)
Part of the work is learning the skills it takes – preferably in step-by-step, hands on learning.
Success is reserved for those who are willing to work hard for very little reward TODAY
Because they have faith that they will be rewarded for their work IN THE FUTURE.
Do GREAT work.

No Money is Made Without Sales!
The people who are making money with websites are making sales. Let's face it – to make money in anything – sales have to be made!
Everybody hates sales…
but everybody loves to buy!
You hate the salesperson…
but you love the helpful person.
When was the last time you were sold?
When was the last time you bought something?
People who have a hard time selling things should keep their day job and not start a business. Businesses that don't sell – don't stay in business. Sales is where the money comes in.
But you don't have to be a salesperson to sell.
If you have a story to tell and your story and your recommendations can help someone else… isn't it your obligation to tell them?
That's what I do – I tell stories.
True stories are still stories.
And anyone who hangs with me shares things through stories that can help other people. We promote things online and in person because we believe in them.
What do you know that could help someone else? ==>>Don't keep it a secret!
Let the world know what you know! You are making other people's lives easier by providing a solution to a problem.
People pay good money for good solutions.
And they tell their friends to go get the solution too.
Just make sure it's really a solution.
Whether the thing you are recommending is $5 or $5,000 – only recommend things you would want someone recommending to your mother, father, daughter or son.
There are over 100,000 a companies looking for help selling their products – so you don't have to have a product of your own, deal with shipping or take care of customer service.
If you already know what you will be selling – this section is not for you. This if for the people who are looking for something they can sell.
Find a product or products that you believe that are related to what you decided to write about. Now, write about those products and how they helped you.
Don't do reviews on products you haven't used or tried and decided not to use. That's not cool.
Where Can I Find Products to Recommend?
Let's say you like your storage unit you got from Amazon – a lot.
You include lots of cool pictures (that you link to your affiliate link on Amazon) and useful info on this storage unit. (with a text link like this one here)
Amazon is going to pay you 8% commissions for every storage unit you sell through the link you put on your website. Let's say you have 7 friends who likes the storage unit too. – You make $95.44
Amazon is actually one of lower paying affiliate programs out there.
Amazon's full affiliate agreement is online –
Here is a summary of the commissions as of 2018:
- 1.0% for video games and game consoles
- 2.0% for televisions and digital download games
- 2.5% for computers, computer components, DVD and Blu-Ray
- 3.0% for toys
- Amazon tablets and Kindle devices: 4.00% (Plus anything not listed!)
- 4.5% for paper books, healthcare, personal care, sports, kitctchen, car and baby products: 4.50%
- 5.0% for digital music and video downloads; grocery items, handmade items or musical instruments
- 6.0% for headphones, beauty products, musical instruments, business and industrial supplies
- 7.0% for clothes and accessories, Amazon TVs, Amazon Echo products and jewelry
- 8.0% for furniture, lawn and garden, home improvement, pantry and pet products
- 10.0% for Amazon fashion items and Amazon Coins
I use amazon links because they sell everything under the sun and sometimes it's nice to have the convenience of being able to recommend any product and make a few dollars here and there from Amazon. But really – a few dollars doesn't pay the rent!
Looking back at my Amazon history over the last 7 years I have been an affiliate – my best month was $121.69 in December 2015 and I have had many months where my income has only been a few dollars (or nothing) from Amazon.
My recommendation is – don't put all your eggs in one basket!
An affiliate network is a place where people go if they have a product they want other people to sell & where people looking for something to sell can go.
You can literally find anything!
If you haven't figured it out yet – this is where you find a way to help people.
The product or service you choose to share and others choose to buy – has to solve a problem for some group of people. If it's not solving problems… find another product or service. One step at a time!
