There are many ways to become successful in life. However, many ways require you to hit difficult targets, deal with difficult people and having to put in many strenuous hours in the office.

This post will focus on how to become successful online.

The year is 2020 and pretty much everything of interest is online. Let’s be honest, not may people pick up books or read up products and services now. The key to finding a good product review is online. With YouTube, the internet and social mediaThe online world growing by the day, it’s so easy to find the right information you need when it comes to products and services.

Why Not Join The Online Marketing World & Become An Online Entrepreneur?

Every single one of us looks for products online, so why not join the online marketing world and make some money by reviewing and promoting products on your very own website? Many people have become successful online and it’s possible to earn an extortionate amount of money as long as you are committed and willing to put in the time and be patient.

Online marketing sounds a lot more complicated than it actually is, of course, you need to work for your money, however, once you have mastered the online marketing world the money keeps rolling in and you can then (within reason) pick and choose your hours.

I looked into this and after much research I came across an online business building platform called Wealthy Affiliate. They help you start your online business and walk you through each step to becoming successful.

How To Become An Online Affiliate

There are different online marketing paths you can go down. However, in my opinion, the best option is affiliate marketing. For more information on affiliate marketing, I recommend you visit my online marketing page here which gives more details into affiliate marketing.

Its as easy as 123 to become an online marketer. However, becoming successful takes hard work but it most certainly pays off. To become an affiliate marketer all you need to do is find your niche (for more info on niches’s click here) and join a good affiliate network. What is an affiliate network I here you ask? Please click here for a recent blog on affiliate networks and how they can help you with your affiliate marketing journey.

I found the quickest and easiest way to learn affiliate marketing, again, is to join Wealthy Affiliate.

Things To Avoid When Becoming An Online Marketer

There are so many perks that come with online marketing; such as being your own boss, being able to work from a destination of your choice, more flexibility when it comes to spending time with your loved ones and many more. However, it is very easy to be sucked into thinking about the luxuries of the online marketing world and its very common to become impatient and to start jumping from ‘shiny object’ to ‘shiny object’.


What I mean by shiny object is, because, like anything, to become successful takes time and hard work and what doesn’t help during the times of learning and growing is going online or onto YouTube and seeing videos of other marketers promoting

6 figures

their course or other marketers shouting about how they made 6 figures in one month and you can too! My advice is to avoid the shiny objects because it will only delay your growth as you will give up on what you are doing and what you have worked hard to learn. Then when the shiny object doesn’t workout you have to start from scratch. Stick to what you are doing, follow the training from Wealthy Affiliate and you cannot go wrong.

Invest Back Into Your Online Business

An essential thing to do (when you can) is to invest back into your online business. Create email lists, sign up pages, a YouTube channel, an Instagram or Facebook following and so on. These do not need to cost a lot of money or even anything at all. By investing back into your business you are creating many streams of income and therefore increasing your chances of becoming financially free.

Going back to those YouTuber marketers who shout “DO YOU WANT TO BE RICH?! WELL I CAN TEACH YOU…” these guys are successful (apart from the scammers) however, like previously mentioned this will not happen overnight. Do not look at these videos and think ‘wow I am going to be rich in no time’. Remember, YouTube is free to use, so everyone can see these videos, therefore if everyone and anyone can get-rich-quick, then everyone would be doing it. Success takes time. Stick to a plan, a routine and educate yourself, create several streams of traffic like I mentioned in the above paragraph and over time you will see success.

investThe best investment I implemented into my online business was by taking up the Wealthy Affiliate premium membership. But wait! Before you read this and think “ah, I have to part with money to learn affiliate marketing”. Remember, Wealthy Affiliate do offer a FREE membership and I certainly recommend you take up the FREE membership first and learn from it as much as you can. Then once you are comfortable, then take a look at the premium membership and see how you can build your business from it and become successful that much quicker. If you are a FREE member already and would like more info on the premium membership, please see my training review here which highlights the benefits of both memberships.

My Final Thoughts

    Hi Russell, Great post. It’s the digital world now and we all need to operate in it, even if we don’t do affiliate marketing ourselves, I think every business would need to employ one in the near future in order to keep up with the fast pace that this world is moving, especially in the marketing field.
