How soon can I make money online?

How can I make money online

Yes, the age-old question, and one that I have an answer to that you probably won’t like, but here it is. It’s up to you, my friend. Honestly, it really is. If you are doing the following things diligently, you will make it sooner than later. Here we go:

1) putting in as much of your time as you possibly can (building your website is extremely time-intensive, and you must have a lot of content before you will begin to rank in the search engines. It can take months to rank, so devote time!

2) researching and building content on your website – At first you must build content quickly and it has to be quality content, which takes research. Fresh content on a continual basis signals to the search engines that you are more important, more credible, etc., so build, build, build!

3) studying the process, tips, tricks, new strategies, continuously to keep abreast of changes in how things are done, so keep learning and studying from others in the field.

5) keeping organized records! That is critical because making money online is a business, and when you begin to build an enormous amount of content, you need to keep track of each post, the comments on each, whether that post has been shared on social media, any affiliate links, etc. Then there is the accounting aspect, which means keeping track of sales you are making on your various products.

6) being involved with other internet marketers and entrepreneurs! This is critical. An online community will help you get your website ranked, and they are a wealth of information and insight into your content, your website design. They also keep your morale up for sure! This is very important! When they visit your website, the search engines take notice! You will also learn a lot from reviewing and visiting their websites as well!

First you must understand the business

You may already have an understanding of the exact process of internet affiliate marketing and you are looking for a program to help you do the business? Maybe you have just started thinking about making money online, and you’re not quite sure the process? Well, I have a course here on my website that I invite you all to take a look at. This will answer both questions. You can find Part 1 of the series here:

What is meant by “with something I love?”

Aaah, here is the best part of this entire business, in my humble opinion! (IMHO LOL!)  Ok, so what do you love? Do you love skiing? Mountain biking? Boating? Sewing? Fishing? Kitties? God? Your daughter? Being a grandmother? Shoes? Horses? Windows?

Here is an article I think you should read.  It’s all about choosing your “niche” or subject of your website.  This is one of the most important decisions you will make in this business, so please take a moment to read this article and reflect on it as well!

How can I make money online



Ok, enough of that, but you get the picture. What do you love? Pick your favorite thing to start. This will make it more exciting! So let’s say you love being a grandmother! That’s awesome. Now you can write a blog website all about being a grandmother. You can write about your grandchildren and your personal life as much or as little as you want, but you want to focus on things, maybe for a grandmother.  As women age, their needs change, so what would help a grandmother be better? Feel better? Look better?

What about grandmother decorations? Like those cute photo albums and those wall hangings? What if you love being a grandmother and you also love candles, you could find and sell grandmother candles.

Look, it’s as whimsical or as serious as you want it to be. I’ve seen wounded veteran affiliate sites that donate part of their commissions to wounded veterans. I’ve seen a kitty calendar website that was killing it!  I’m not kidding, whatever you love, share it with the world, and monetize it to make it worth your time and energy!

Born in Texas, raised in upstate New York, I have been marketing for my entire adult life.I have decided to share all the information I have gathered on what works in affiliate marketing, and what doesn't because I want to let the world know that working online gives you the freedom to work from anywhere, and that is exactly what I do!

Starting out can be tough, I know, so I will also be sharing lots of free resources to get you going.I am dedicated to providing this information to my readers, and I hope you always feel free to reach out to me.

Thanks for visiting my page!


  1. Making money doing something you love. Sounds like a dream job, a dream come true for most people. Who wouldn’t want to get rich by doing something they’re passionate about at the same time!

    The online world has got such vast opportunities these days, it’s great that you’re encouraging people to tap on it, and sharing whatever knowledge you have gained from being in this line. Thank you!

  2. Great post! You’re so right that it’s time and labor intensive, but it’s doable if it’s something you really want. If you pick a topic your are passionate about, the process can be so rewarding. 

    Keeping records is something I need to start doing. I’m still relatively new (a little over a month into my website), but I’ve been writing about 6 posts/week, so they’re starting to build up and also run together in my head. I’m not at the point where I’m making any sales, but I do need to keep a better log of my affiliate posts so I can remember what I have already and how I might use it within other posts I create.

  3. A comprehensive guide to starting your own buisness online.  No hype, no bull just hard work, and a lot of time.  Nothing happens overnight but if you start to build a buisness you must start from the ground up.  

    The foundation is the most important part.  From there you develop and grow your business.

    This was very informative as I am just begining to learn all about making money online.

  4. It’s wonderful that in this day and age we can actually do something that we love and also make a living from it. In our grand parents generation there was about three career choices you could choose from, but boy how times have changed. 

    Thanks to the internet there are just so many wonderful ways to generate an income online that with a little hard work and perseverance you could be working for yourself and enjoying your job at the same time.  Creating websites about topics that we love is just one way of doing this. 

  5. I am curious to know how you know if something you love has money to be made in it? I have a few passions that I have never started an online blog with because I do not see a lot of money within it. Did you attempt to start a blog within an area that didn’t have a lot of money in it? How did it work for you if you did pursue it?

    1. Pursue your passion first, write about what you love, and then choose products to promote within your pages that you think your readers would enjoy and benefit from.  That’s all!

  6. Here’s some crazy statistics. 87% of people work in jobs they do not enjoy. I remember hearing this few days ago and it totally blew my mind. Just imagine how many people that is when you convert the percentage to actual amount. So, damn many people.

    The sad thing is that no one can make their best work and really contribute to the well-being and prosperity of the human kind, if they’re not enjoying what they do. There has been studies made around this to solidify the point. Essentially I would consider that time spent a day (modestly about 9-10 hours) being completely wasted.

    Cause the people work just because they have to and not because they want to. To put it in perspective, they wouldn’t work that job, if they didn’t need to get money to survive. They would much rather do something else. And I completely and totally understand where these people are coming from.

    All in all, I really loved the fact that you addressed this in the article, because it is so damn important to love what you do. To not be wanting to go to sleep just because you want more of it and then in the morning jumping straight out of bed, because you know that you get to do the thing you love. How much more resourceful would that make you?

    The statistics do approve that it is an extremely topical issue. And you have my deepest gratitude for talking about this and trying to educate people so that more people would be among those 13%.

    Cheers and have a Great One!Matiss

  7. Amazing post Babs!

    I started off online the wrong way, I keep hearing that I can monetize a site doing something I really like but I kept on getting scammed with MLMs until at one point, I gave up thinking that there’s no way I can succeed online if I keep promoting something I have no interest in. 

    I then tried again and found out that affiliate marketing is going stronger now than ever and there’s so many things to choose and promote wow! Shouldn’t have stopped my journey halfway, I would have saved a lot time on growing my site 😀

  8. Hi Babs, Thank you for the way you formatted your post on Coaching for Internet Marketers. As you say, it must be something you love and to find the right Niche which will keep you and your readers interested and informed is absolutely crucial.

    Finding Wealthy Affiliate and building a website and creating content has been the most exciting thing I have done in years and I hope to carry on for many more years.

    I have bookmarked your post as it is one I can reread at my leisure and also will inspire others.

  9. Hi Babs! I think it is true that you can write a blog about anything and it makes it so much easier and more interesting to write about something you love. Your enjoyment and enthusiasm will show through in your writing. But I must say, there are tips to keep in mind to make it appeal to more people and that’s where training is very useful – to guide you to writing better blogs! To reach more people and eventually to make more money! 

  10. Hi Babs, oh, what a wonderful, light, refreshing post. I love your sense of humour and I agree with you wholeheartedly.  

    When I started out online, I started with a breastfeeding site because I had been nursing my son for 2 years and loved it so much, I wanted to encourage Moms to nurse as long as possible too.  I nursed for another 2 years, which was full-term for us.  

    At the same time, I also realised another passion of mine was working from home in my own business, so I started a Mom Entrepreneur site too. Interestingly, that’s the one that’s really taken off for me. I’ve interviewed the most incredible Mom Entrepreneurs, Mom Inventors and Authors and it’s inspired an idea for a new website, one for Indie Authors as I’ve always wanted to write and self-publish my own book. 

    You never really know where your passions will lead you.

  11. Doing what you love make your job easier. Building a business and focusing on what you love is definitely the right move. It motivates you and always allows you to think twice before quitting. Imagine having a job that you hate so much, you will be miserable and therefore won’t give it your best. 

    When you start making money, you won’t even realize, because you’ll be busy enjoying your business.

    Great post.

  12. Thank you for this information. I’ve got the “doing something that I love” down pat but when I started, I never really had the intention of making money. After seeing what is developing on my website, I am being pulled towards capitalizing this opportunity.

    There is so much to learn and I am thankful for the helpful tips you provide. Keeping organized is definitely something I need to work on going forward… but starting now.

  13. Thank you, Babs, for sharing your experience on how to make money with your passion via online business and your honest answer how soon l can make money. You have made it clearly from the beginning it all boiled down to your time, efforts devoted and done all things diligently. 

    I am totally agreed with you that whatsoever things you love, you can create a website and share to the world and monetize it. But before you get started, get some real training and make sure you have the right mindset to succeed.

    I really enjoy reading your post, and keep up the good work.


  14. I totally agree. How long have you been working online? I have just started back in August of this year and I find it to be very challenging. I’d learned something new one day but the next there will be another thing to learn. It got too overwhelming and I lost focus of what I am doing. Now I am at my 4th month in, I learned to take things at my own pace while I am still working at the job that I hate lol. I rather be learning it good and at my own pace rather than jumping in the pit and not really learning anything. In the mean time I am focusing on my niche and writing the rich content post once a week, I love it to be 2 posts but I find it is hard to come by since my job hours is out of whack. 

    My ultimate goal is to leave my job eventually and be my own boss, but for now I am still a student. I find that technology overwhelms me lol I am fighting though.

    Great read.

    Happy Holidays

    1. I have been marketing online for many years, but not to this degree.  It was when I found the Wealthy Affiliate platform that I actually learned exactly how to do this, and I have taken off.  I write several posts each week.  I have two active websites that I focus on.  This one and a health and wellness website.  I absolutely love it, and I devote as much time as I can to this endeavor.  I bring my computer everywhere with me, and if I find time, I work on my current blog post. 

      Don’t get overwhelmed.  Just take it as it comes.  It is the persistence that matters.  I know what it feels like to have a job you hate.  Building consistent content on your site and following the training is what will get you out of that job. 

      Let me know if you need anything along the way.  I’m always right here!  – Babs

  15. The online world is filled with many many opportunities to create income.  Time and dedication is a must for this dream to  come true. And what could be better than doing something you love and making money doing it.  With time and persistence, success and a sure thing.  Thanks for a  motivating and uplifting article.  

    1. You are welcome, indeed!  Time and persistence are key ingredients, I totally agree!  It can happen, and happen bit, but not overnight!  – Babs

  16. if you can make money from something you love doing then it is not a job but remains your passion.

    My ex wife had a hobby of making cakes and it ballooned into a branded business. 

    Doing what you love to do as a job is a dream come true for only a few of us but a wish for the majority. 

  17. Hi Babs! This really is an interesting article! Who could ever even think that one could work on something that’s our passion? A great thing is to do what we love and also get paid for doing it. And you are showing us a way to do exactly that! Thank you very much!

  18. Hi Babs. As a new affiliate marketer, I agree most people who start out have no idea where to start or where they’re going. All they know is they’ve heard it’s the way the world is going and they want to jump onto the bandwagon.

    Your information is quite accurate and I like the fact that you emphasize being an affiliate marketer is not a get-rich-quick scheme. If anything, you will need to work harder than you’ve ever thought you would, but, if done correctly, I believe the proof is in the pudding as my grandmother used to say.

    Best of luck in the future.


  19. This article is quite informative. It is also inspiring in that I can learn one way or ways to earn online.  I have been looking for ways to earn,  and I had not found one until now thanks to this blog,    I know I am in the right place at the right time so I only have to thank you for the great work, Babs.

  20. Doing something that I love for living sounds like a dream to me.

    But I am on my way.

    I started my own affiliate marketing business some time ago and I am currently developing it during my free time.

    It still needs work, but having picked a topic that I love talking about motivates me, keeps me driven, and above doesn’t tire me.

    I am applying everything you’ve laid out within your article so I think that I am on the right track 🙂

    My best to you,


    1. Most of us spend our time working at jobs we can’t stand, so yes, it is a dream to work at something you love.  You can center your site (your niche) around anything that interests and excites you.  Best to you as well Xaric!  – Babs

  21. Hi, this is what I am looking for, making money from home with the help of the internet.

    I think I’ll try affiliate marketing. We do have some income so the daily costs are covered but I just want to make some extra money to be able to fulfill some goals I haven’t reached so far and cannot be financialized with the income we have right now.

    I’ll check out the program that teaches the affiliate marketing you suggest, thanks.

    1. Affiliate Marketing is a viable way to make a substantial living online.  if you are diligent and put in the time and energy necessary to build your content, the money will come.  Give it the proper time to build your traffic!  Let me know how I can help along the way.   – Babs

  22. Thank you for this information, Bab!  I think I may have seen you on Webtalk or CashJuice?  Anyway, the part I enjoyed about your post was how you explained that one needs to be consistent with fresh content and do diligent research.  I noticed you had a separtate post on this and am looking forward to reading that next.  

    So you built this site raising two sets of twins??? My goodness, you must be some kind of superwoman!  

    Thanks again for your honest assessment of what it takes to build a successful web presence.  On my way to review your content generation suggestions. 


    1. Hello Nathan!  Yes, I have two sets of twins!  I have been called superwoman before lol!  It comes with the territory!  

      I appreciate your interest in the site and information provided here.  I am a member of Webtalk, yes.  Be sure to connect with me there!   – Babs

  23. Making money naturally comes when you are doing something you love. Thanks for mentioning that. It is encouraging to see another marketer here giving very positive advice.

    I like that you are realistic about what it will take. A lot of hours, especially in the beginning. But, as you say, diligence pays off.

  24. Great article. I just started trying to make a business online, and reading this gives me a motivation boost. It is true, that working on a market that you love really helps with getting up 8am or 6am in the morning to work. My interest is cooking with electric pressure cookers so I’m building my site around that. I have seen businesses with interesting niche and they made it work. It’s a lot of work writing quality content, but I love it so far. 

    1. That’s exactly why your niche needs to be centered around something you love because you will be immersed in it!  I am like you, super motivated, because I’ve chosen something I love!  – Babs

  25. Hi Babs.

    As a new affiliate marketer, I agree most people who start out have no idea where to start or where they’re going. All they know is they’ve heard it’s the way the world is going and they want to jump onto the bandwagon.

    Your information is quite accurate and I like the fact that you emphasize being an affiliate marketer is not a get-rich-quick scheme. If anything, you will need to work harder than you’ve ever thought you would. But, if done correctly, I believe the proof is in the pudding, as my grandmother used to say.Best of luck in the future.Sandra

    1. That’s right, Sandra, the proof is indeed in the pudding!  Affiliate Marketing is exciting, fun, rewarding work, but you do have to put a lot of time and energy into it to be successful.   – Babs

  26. Hi Babs, I find your article very motivating, I totally agreed with you in all of what you said, the first thing to do is to start seeing this as a real business and to put the time it needs. I am also a new comer into the online affiliate business and I appreciate the support and guidance that people as yourself provide to us, thank you and good luck.

    1. You are so welcome, Jerry, and I appreciate you taking the time to comment on my post!  I’m glad it was helpful to you.  Good luck to you as well!   – Babs

  27. Thank you for sharing ¨HOW CAN I MAKE MONEY ONLINE?.WITH SOMETHING I LOVE¨. I´m trying to be a blogger but unsure how to make money online, so I found your article most relevant.I´d like your opinion, or perhaps you know, about this course ¨Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing¨. This course is a step by step guide to creating and making money fromyour own successful affiliate marketing strategy. ¨Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing¨ explains all of the ins and outs, so you are never left wondering where to go next when creating and implementing your affiliate marketing strategy.This course is made up of 6 modules with over 30 lessons, several worksheets, bonuses, and an exclusive Facebook group. The instructor is award winning personal finance blogger, Michelle Schroedner-Gardner. It costs $197

    1. That does not sound like it has as much benefit as the Wealthy Affiliate platform.  You get up to 50 websites, hundreds of training modules, a whole community of members, live trainings, mentoring, website comments, etc.  You don’t need to spend that much money for 30 lessons.  I’m not blasting the other program, I don’t really know that much about it, but I do know all about the Wealthy Affiliate program and all it offers.  – Babs
