How to make money online and from what?

This is a very common question that many beginners ask when they want to make money from the Internet but do not know where to start.

Guess what? They will be bombarded with millions of search results of products with making money online!

When they try their hands on every exciting product telling them they can make money online overnight, they became disappointed and discouraged that what was promised did not happen.

They did not make money online overnight but instead spending their hard earned money on the scam products with no returns.

Does this sound familiar to you too?

Hi, Edmund here.

I was a beginner in Internet Marketing like you and I was naive to fall into traps of scam products and wasted some money myself too.


How to make money online and from what? – Let’s fight scam together!

I want to help beginners like you to avoid the scams so that you can learn how to make money online the right and legitimate way.

Hopefully to keep those scammers out from the Internet so that they will not suck more money from honest people like you and me. 

I know, I cannot change the Online world with just one person’s effort. I need your help to share and save the others too.

Remember the scene from The Matrix where Neo is going to choose his destiny? I am giving you a Red pill and a Blue pill too.

How to Make Money Online and From What?

“You take the blue pill, the story ends. You’ll wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. If you take the red pill, you’ll stay in wonderland, and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes.” – Morpheus


Make your choice now Neo! 🙂


How to make money online and from what? – If you choose the Red Pill

One of the great weaknesses of a human is Temptation. We like to be tempted with promises of Big Fast Money, Big Cars, and Big House so that we could jump into the “Rabbit hole”.

I am going to tell you the hard truth that you might not wish to hear.

Listen carefully,

“There is no, never and ever Get Rich Quick method in the Online Business World!”

You need Commitments, Hard Work and Grit to make it work. These are the hard to swallow pills that lead many to give up.

Ask yourself,

  • What is the driving force for you to succeed no matter what comes in between?
  • Why do you hunger for Financial Success?
  • Why do you want to do more for your loved ones?

Continue to believe that you could be rich overnight, and spend all money on anything/anyone that promises you that.

You could spend a little of your money on buying Lottery at the same time too.

With no commitments and hard work as the common baseline, I think it will have a higher probability of letting you become rich overnight!

Do you get what I mean?


How to make money online and from what? – The “Rabbit Hole”

The truth of making money online is that it is a long journey to Success!

There is so much to learn and put into practice the knowledge we have acquired.

It is like the deep, dark and long Rabbit Hole. To navigate out of the dark, long and ever winding hole, we are bound to hit some walls and face some dead ends.

It takes Guts and Grit to keep moving forward, backtracking a little then move forward again before we can finally see the light at the end of the hole!

If you have chosen the “Red Pill” read on…


How to make money online and from what? – Your Passion

Every one of us is passionate about something in life.

Leverage on that, build an Online Business to tell others what you are passionate about and then convert them to your customers!

Yes, you could start an Online Business by monetising your Passion in 4 Steps.

Passion -> Online Business -> Attract Customers -> Revenue.

    I really like your analogy of the rabbit hole. In the world of website marketing, there is so much “know how” that would be rather difficult to learn without a guided system of Wealthy Affiliate.

    It took me several months to decide whether to take the blue pill or red pill. I had heard about WA from a few sources, but I just couldn’t commit, because I thought it would be a spam. But here I am now, officially 3 months into my website, and I’m so glad I went down that hole. It was not overnight, but it is continually blossoming into something better.

      Hi Darrien, thank you for your comment.

      I am really glad that you have decided to join Wealthy Affiliate after due consideration. You have made the right choice and I sure you are going to see the light at the end of the rabbit hole!

      I sincerely wish you success!

    This is a good way to teach beginners how to make their first bit of money online. It’s a confusing process for a beginner who’s only first getting into it now.

    I remember I was so confused about the entire process and I think this article will help many people and show them the proper way.

    Great job on this.

    Hi, Edmund, well-executed website. I like the analogy on the red and blue pill. I too got caught up in the get rich schemes trap and did not want to put in any work. Thanks to Wealthy Affiliate now, I realize that is not the case. making money online requires many skills that we all need to learn before getting started.

    Thank you for such valuable tips. How long do you think one should wait until they start to see results when building their business online?


    1. Edmund Post author

      Hi Bishop, thanks for your comment and feedback!

      Yes, the temptation of money is the greatest yet the hard work is most dreaded. This is how most people will behave. The people who make the most money are the people who would do things that most people won’t do.

      Wealthy Affiliate University has successfully guided many to learn the right mindset of making money with an Online Business. I was one of them too.

      Like you, I realised that making money online requires not only the know-how but commitment, hard work and grit.

      Results happen at a different time for different people. It really depends on how much effort and time you are willing to commit to your Online Business.

      I made my first income after 6 months of hard work at Wealthy Affiliate University. No, not a million definitely! But an amount that pushed me to keep moving forward because I know it is possible.

      Wishing you success!

    Hi Edmund, Love this post!

    I have to admit, I was one of the lucky ones! Once I decided to quit my 9-5 job and began looking for an online business platform, I stumbled upon Wealthy Affiliate quite quickly.

    Not to say I didn’t encounter some very shady businesses that came across as too good to be true. I had never done anything online except for the usual, social media, bill pay and emails to friends and family.

    As a total beginner, I consider myself blessed not to get caught up in all the online scams that are out there like so many do. I have never been one to waste my money on the lottery, but I think you are correct. You are more apt to get rich by playing the lottery then you buy most online scams that promise you can make millions overnight by doing nothing.

    It takes hard work, and dedication to make money no matter what avenue you take in life. Thanks for the great post and I certainly hope that those wishing to make money online with take heed to your advise.

    1. Edmund Post author

      Hi Suzette, thanks for sharing your own experience with us.

      Indeed, you are the lucky one. 🙂 There are just too many scams out there in the Online World. It is like if you thrown a stone randomly in the air, it will land on one scam 99% of the time.

      I am really glad that you are with Wealthy Affiliate now and learning how to make money online. I totally agree with you that dedication and hard work are required no matter what avenue we take in life if we want to achieve Success!

      I sincerely wish you success, Suzette!

    Hi Edmund,

    I really like the quote that you got from the Matrix about the blue pill and red pill. Making money online is always not that easy but if you are patient and work hard then you will achieve a lot of success.

    You will not get rich quick and that is a mindset that we have to change before we can even think about starting our own online business.

    1. Edmund Post author

      Hi Viljoen, good day to you!

      You are right that making money Online is definitely going to take hard work, patient and grit to see success. Positive Mindset is the important key to have for a new budding Online Entrepreneur.

      Thanks for sharing! Wishing you the best!

    Would you have any other recommendations for making money online or is Affiliate Marketing your go to business model?

    How much have you learned from your beginning to where you are now from Wealthy Affiliate? Is it worth the trouble?

    I’ve heard some good things, and some bad, what made this course stand out to you and make you a believer?

    “The truth of making money online is that it is a long journey to Success!”
    I like this sentence. In 2017 I am going to start with affiliate Marketing. Thanks for sharing!

    Great post! I like how you explained the two different paths you could choose to take. One involves scams and the other is a legitimate opportunity. Scams can sound pretty enticing, but, like you said, there is no such thing as a get rich quick opportunity. You have to put time and hard work into earning money, especially online. The best thing about creating an online business is that you get to pursue your passion and help others learn about your interests.

    Thank you for this helpful information.
