Can I Make Money Online?

Woman asking "Can I Make Money Online?"

Woman asking "Can I Make Money Online?"Can you see the massive potential for making money online but can’t figure out how to do it? I know how you feel. I struggled for years.

All that changed when I stumbled onto an online community that teaches the right way to build an internet business. The skills I learned there are more valuable than my two college degrees combined.

If you’re eager to get started, click here to go straight to the getting started video.

This community dramatically change my life, helped me build a profitable online business and gave me the skills to earn as much as I want.

In this article, I’ll introduce you to our community, show you what it takes to succeed online and how you can get started today for free.

If you’re like me, and like most people who try to make money online, at some point you hit the wall. You just can’t figure it out.

Maybe every time you try, you get scammed, toss money down a rat hole and get nothing in return. Or, your spouse, parents and friends question your sanity.

Maybe, you’re lost in the “zone of mass confusion.” I’ve been there too. Thank goodness, I’m not now.

Can I Make Money Online?

I asked myself that many times. Now, I can confidently say, “Yes, I can make money online.” But, more importantly, “Yes, YOU can!”

I’ll show you how

Save Your Money. Start for Free.

Free is Good.After my experience with online scams and worthless make-money-online products, I only recommend free stuff or stuff you can try for free before you buy it.

If an online product has legitimate value, you’ll know that when you try it. There is no need to risk your money.

Keep this in mind as I show you how ridiculously simple it is to take advantage of the greatest opportunity in the history of civilization. The key is knowing what works.

Success online boils down to just three things.

All You Need to Make Money Online.

Before I tried to succeed online, I struggled to become a successful novelist. My novel-writing career is still in progress. However, along the way, I discovered that while each author succeeded in their unique way, they each had a similar foundation on which to build.

It’s the same with success online. Thankfully, it’s a lot easier to succeed as an online marketer than to succeed as a novelist.

People who succeed online have three things that people who fail online never have.

Those who succeed online have: 1) Proper Support. 3) A Website. 3) Proper Education and Practice.

Let’s take a closer look at each of these key elements.

1. Support.

The internet is a big place and growing more complex by the minute. Knowing what works and what doesn’t is essential. Sometimes the smallest detail can lead to days of frustration.

With the proper support, you’ll never be left agonizing over some stupid technical detail.

A website is essential to making money online.

2. A Website

A website is a must. It is not possible to succeed online without a website. Fortunately, with the right technology, building a website is super easy and fast.

Over time, your site will become a valuable piece of internet real estate and the source of a steady stream of income for you.

3. Proper Education and Practice.

On the wall, above my writing space, I have a reminder of what it takes to master a skill. It reminds me every day to “practice, practice, practice.”

In any sport or profession, you’ll discover the people at the top are the ones who practice the most. Pro golfers are pros because they hit thousands of golf balls every day.

Proper practice simplifies success, so you do the right thing, at the right time without thinking. When you know what works and implement this knowledge, success happens naturally, consistently and long term. You can bet on it!

The secret is to think like an entrepreneur. We show you how with the  Online Entrepreneur Certification – Getting Started course.

  1. People are getting scammed everyday because of the dream that, they can get a lot of money really quickly. So if someone wanted to make money online why not just scam people like everyone else is?

    1. Hi, Aaron!

      Unfortunately, many people do make money online by scamming others, but I don’t recommend it. While scams do make money, they are in opposition to the fundamental laws of the marketplace. When you scam people, eventually they figure it out and avoid your business, then you have to start over. The scams I investigate online are constantly changing their names and domains. The natural growth a legitimate business enjoys is never attained.

      Instead of scamming people, if you build a legitimate online business that helps people solve a problem or fulfill a desire, your business will continue to grow. Eventually, you will have an established brand and your happy customers will tell friends, who tell friends. If you have a conscience, a legitimate online business if far more satisfying.

      Thanks for a great question,


  2. Hi Gary, please I have been finding it difficult to register the free membership as a newbie.My intentions were to enroll as a fresher and check out d site.but I want to ask, does this scheme restricted to some particular countries alone? My name is Innocent writing from Nigeria.
    Thank you sir.

    1. Hi, Innocent!

      Unfortunately, there are a few countries where the free membership is not offered and Nigeria is one of those countries.

      In the free membership, we give you two free websites and scammers from a few countries exploited this which caused damage to the reputation and security of our community. For these reasons we’ve had to withdraw the offer of a free membership from the countries listed below. You can still join at the paid level which is $49 (US).

      No Free Membership available in the following countries. Paid membership is available.

      1. Bangladesh
      2. Egypt
      3. India
      4. Kenya
      5. Nigeria
      6. Pakistan
      7. Philippines
      8. Vietnam

  3. Having the opportunity to try something for free makes all the difference in the world. There are a lot of programs out there that do not offer much of anything, so they require you to pay up front. They tend to do that because most people leave after realizing they are not worth the money.

    What you offer shows they have worth and they are willing to prove it with free services so you can see firsthand the value they bring to the table.

    Sounds like a win-win to me!

    1. Hi, Travis!

      Thanks for stopping by. I appreciate your insight.

      I lost track of the money I wasted on internet marketing products. Most, as you mentioned, are not worth the money. Very few programs teach how to make money online based on proven business principles and ethics.

      The amazing thing I’ve realized is that being honest and ethical on the internet is a revolutionary act. It immediately puts you ahead of the competition. Imagine that!

      Wealthy Affiliate is the best place I’ve found to learn how to build an online business the right way. The free starter membership makes it easy and risk free to try.

      All the best,


  4. Yes, it is possible to make money online, and lots of it. The fun part of this job is when your efforts have started to take fruit. The hard part though is getting to that point. That’s why support is really important in the process because it gives motivation to keep working on your dreams.

    1. Hi, Dominic!

      You sum up the biggest challenge of making money online nicely. You are so right when you say the hard part is getting to the making money point.

      Like any legitimate business, it takes time and if people don’t realize this they may quit before they are actually making money.

      The internet is not an ATM. It’s a means of communicating with the world. If you have a product or service that helps people and you can be trusted, there is nothing stopping you from making a lot of money, but you must invest the time first.

      Thanks for stopping by,


  5. I will never forget the first $0.27 I made from an affiliate program. It was the best feeling. I figured that if i could made $0.27 I could make more. I can vouch for Wealthy Affiliate. Their active community support is one of the best. The education you can get with them is excellent. And finally, don’t give up your dream to publish your novel.

    1. Hi, Celeste!

      Thanks for stopping by.

      My first sale was a dollar. A few weeks later, I made another sale for a dollar. That convinced me there was gold to be had and motivated me to get to work on my website with new enthusiasm. A few months later, my website earned just shy of $500 in two days while I was camping at the beach. That’s when I became a believer.

      My success would not have happened without Wealthy Affiliate. The methods and strategies Wealthy Affiliate teaches work and they compliment the search engines so all the goodness of Google, Bing and Yahoo work for you 24 hours a day. It’s amazing.

      Thank you for encouraging my novel writing. I hope to have a second novel out soon.

      All the best,


  6. Hi Gary. Lovely site – so well set out and easy to navigate. Your Scam Avenger cartoon character is great too – very original and creative. I can also tell that you are a work in progress novelist (like me) as I only found 1 typo in the text (‘This community change my life’) which is really refreshing as these days I find web content often has lots of mistakes.

    Your description of Wealthy Affiliate is to the point and onest – which I think is vital if you are to gain trust in this area. The only thing I’d add is something about you – the personal touch is always a plus.

    All the best 🙂

    1. Hi, Jules!

      Thanks for stopping by. Now I’m dying to know what the typo was that you found.

      Thanks for you kind words. You are the second person this week who has asked for more information about me. I can take a hint.

      All the best,


  7. Hi Gary,

    Great explanation of how Wealthy Affiliate actually works.

    Do you think it’s possible to achieve success if you stay as a free member there? Not just some success, but the success that will allow you to quit your regular 9/5 job? Or is it crucial to upgrade to premium to access all the tools they offer?


    1. Hi, Dmitriy!

      Thanks for stopping by.

      I think it is possible to achieve success as a free member, but it will take much longer. And the longer it takes to see results the more probable a person will quit. That’s the only way you can fail with the methods and strategies Wealthy Affiliate teaches.

      The greater question is why would someone not invest to become a premium member if they are serious about earning enough to quit their 9 to 5? The monthly membership cost of $49 (or $29 if paid annually) is insignificant to the income you would earn and the personal freedom you would enjoy.

      With the training inside Wealthy Affiliate, it is realistic to expect to earn 6 figures annually. It doesn’t happen overnight, but it does happen if you follow the training. Most people who earn 6 figure incomes have to go to college for years and go deep into debt before they earn their first nickel.

      By upgrading to the Wealthy Affiliate premium membership, you could be earning enough to cover the cost of membership within a few months and be well on your way to earning 6 figures and escaping the 9 to 5 grind.

      I can’t imagine any other business that costs so little to build and maintain, and yet, pays so much in return.

      A better use of the free Wealthy Affiliate starter membership is to evaluate Wealthy Affiliate and see if you are ready to commit to building a legitimate online business that will change your life. If you’re ready and you trust Wealthy Affiliate to get you there, go all in.

      All the best,


  8. What a great description of the Wealthy Affiliate program. I’m like you, I’ve tried so many different programs in the past that made lofty promises of overnight riches, but have never made a dime. What I like about this program is the try it before you buy it approach, the great support every step of the way and the awesome community. The fact that you do not even have to input your credit card information is a great plus. Very well written article that explains WA in fantastic detail.

    1. Hi, Carol!

      Thanks for stopping by. For anyone serious about making money online, Wealthy Affiliate is their best chance at making it happen. The skills and strategies at Wealthy Affiliate work and the financial rewards are staggering. Just remember, it’s not get rich quick. It’s slow and steady wins the race.

      All the best,

  9. Hello Gary!!

    Very nice page and topic! Thank you for recommendation! I am also member of wealthy affiliate and I can surely support your ideas from your post. WA is great community of people from the world which are really motivated and like to answer on your questions!!

    Can I ask you how long are you doing this and how much time do you spend daily on making your website?

    Thank you very much for your reply!

    1. Hi, Krystof!

      Thanks for stopping by. I appreciate that you took the time to comment.

      I’ve been an internet marketer for about 8 years, but it was only when I joined Wealthy Affiliate 18 months ago that I built a coherent online business with authority websites.

      All the best,


  10. What a great description of the Wealthy Affiliate program. Like you I have tried many scams that promised overnight riches, but I’ve never made a dime. I particularly like the try it before you buy it approach and the fact you don’t even have to have a credit card. Great description of this wonderful program.

    1. Hi, Carol!

      Thanks for stopping by. I appreciate your kind words.

      The first thing I did when I joined Wealthy Affiliate was unsubscribe from all the junk emails. Once I understood how to make money with a legitimate online business it was obvious to me that the guys sending me offers only wanted my money.

      All the best,


  11. Greetings Gary,

    WOW!!! What a WEALTH of information you provided (yes, pun was intended).

    I can tell, from reading your posts, that you are personally invested in what you’re sharing. A lot of sites comes off as “Come, look at us! We’re the best!” But they leave you feeling like they’re just trying to get your digits….your credit card digits. Obviously, since you are a part of Wealth Affiliate, I expected you to be genuine, but I l believe that, if I had never heard of Wealth Affiliate before (actually, there was such a time, just a few weeks ago, where this was the case), I would be inclined to take a further look.

    “The Best Keyword Search Tool” post is something that I’m learning now, as I go through the lessons; you make it easily understood. Although I like the diagram with the icons, the words seem to be a bit faded. Is there a way you can darken them? There’s something about seeing a pic on a website or blog; if it’s not crisp and clear, it looks suspicious.

    I give a “Thumbs Up” for your Scam Avenger girl!!! I think she should appear in every post or blog. I like how each page has fresh and different pictures. I noticed that a few websites that I had reviewed, a few of them have the same picture on top when you click onto the different pages. Like many people I know, I’m very visual, so I like things to be mixed up a bit.

    There was just one thing that I thought was missing….you. You gave a little of your story on the Keyword Search Tool, but I felt as if you held back, as if you only wanted to share the surface, not what’s underneath. It just made me think of flowers: on the surface, they look pretty, but its what’s going beneath the surface that’s really interesting, because that’s where the growth begins.

    I have a feeling I’ll be visiting your site again Gary.

    I hope my feedback was helpful.


    1. Hi, Veronica!

      Thanks for much for sharing your insights. You’ve given me a lot of helpful information.

      Thanks too for telling me about the keyword tool image. I’ll fix that. I’m glad you like ScamAvenger girl. I’ll take your advice and include her on more pages.

      I’ll update my about page too.

      You’ve been a great help.

      Thank you!
