    Whoa! What an informative site! I love how engaging your article was. I wish I was still a college student so I could have built money right and not put it towards MLM but I think that experience has taught me valuable lessons.

    I thank you for inspiring the future generation and providing them with the tools they will need to succeed! Especially with how fast paced everything is now, this info is surely needed!


    1. Edmund Post author

      Hey Adrian, thanks for your comment. I agree with you that the Online World is very fast paced now.
      A lot of “shiny make money online products” comes and disappears after they scammed enough honest people of their hard earned cash.
      We have to be careful not to jump into any empty promises of riches in this Online World.

      I really hope that this article can reach out to as many college students as possible so that they would know myths and truths of Online Marketing.

      Wishing you Success!

Any other suggestions you have that were not in the article that I can let her know? Thanks again for the article. I will let you know how it goes.

    Interesting post on how to make money online as a college student. I was in the same situation a few years ago as I badly needed a job to earn some extra money for besides my studies. If I have had known Wealthy Affiliate at that time I would already earn a full-time income online. I have started a few weeks ago and do it now as part-time job besides my current job and it is very easy to combine the full-time job and Wealthy Affiliate besides that.

    As college students do have limited investment possibilities a big point is the costs of Wealthy Affiliate. Is it free for college students?



    1. Edmund Post author

      Hi Don, I guess we were in the same boat during our times as a college student. 🙂

    Hey, this is just what I needed to hear. As a student, the last thing I want to be doing is working till the early hours of the morning in a bar the same as my friends.

    I’ve been saying that I want to start an online business, but everyone just seems to laugh when I tell them. i will do it though, it’s just about finding the real way to start one and avoid the scams, I’ll definitley be taking a look at Wealthy Affiliate and see what it’s all about.

  9. Tim

    Hi Edmund,

    Interesting article. I am a college student and can relate to the importance of time and money management as you pointed out. It’s always handy to make some extra cash, but personally my motivation is to make a full-time income online.

    I also know there are a ton of scams online and I’ve experienced them first hand. I like the idea of Wealthy Affiliate since it is based on real education in Internet marketing. Thanks for posting this was very informative. Tim

      Yup! Wealthy Affiliate is an Open Education Project. This means that all the experts around the world gathers there to share their knowledge and experience. Definitely a great place to learn about Internet Marketing!

  10. Richard

    Thanks for the insight Edmund.

    If you don’t mind me asking…

    How many sites have you made following Wealthy Affiliate?

    Have you tried earning from Amazon?

    I’ve built a few sites myself and one of my problems has been spreading myself too thin.

    Do you think one big site beats many small ones?

    Sorry for picking your brains…



    1. Edmund Post author

      Hi Richard, thanks for your questions.

      I am currently only focusing on this website you are looking at now and certainly I do recommend books or other materials from Amazon that is related to my articles or niche. I am able to focus on one website now due to my time commitment in other parts of my life.

      This leads to your third question and I am going to ask you back a question.

      How much time do you have every day for your Online Business Websites? If you think the problem is spreading yourself too thin, you really have to decide which websites are the one you can focus on. Time management is an important aspect as mentioned in my article.

      Hope this helps! 🙂

      Wishing you Success!

    Hi, Edmund!

    It has always been a problem for college students to fund their studies & the inevitable student loan at the end of your schooling period. Many tend to work part-time after school hours to barely scrape through college.

    Myself, I have stumbled upon Wealthy Affiliate & it has certainly changed my life. Turning my passion into income & at the same time building a substantial network, why not?

    Thanks for sharing this article.

    1. Edmund Post author

      Hi, Zhi Wei! Thanks for your comment!

      Keep up the good work and keep moving forward. I am sure you’ll see your Success real soon!

      Wishing you the best!


    Hi, Edmund.

    Wealthy Affiliate is really the best venture to make money while schooling. Long ago I started online business trying to create a website but because of the know how I couldn’t. So with the help of their training, I think it will help me a lot.

    But do they have any investment system where you can become their partner and also make a living through that or you need to build another Facebook to be the next Zuck.

    1. Edmund Post author

      Hi, Roland.

      Yes, Wealthy Affiliate will definitely teach you the know-how of how to start an Online Business. If you are able to put in your effort to follow and implement what was taught in the training, you are definitely on your way to make your first Online income.

      Wealthy Affiliate does not offer any investment system. Instead, it has its own Affiliate Boot Camp where you can earn a commission promoting Wealthy Affiliate. I would say, there is not gonna to be another Facebook, but you could be what you want to be, following your dreams and goals just like Zuck did.

      Wishing you the best!
