“Is it possible to make money online?”
Maybe it’s one of the questions that are going through your head right now. I also had a million doubts when I started don’t worry, that’s normal.
The important thing is what to do with these doubts. And better yet, how to monetize these doubts. To clarify many of the questions, let’s say more basic, I write this post addressing generally what it is and how to make money online.
When I started I didn’t even know how to monetize a site! I had no idea the time was passing, I went to study, studying and studying and today I have a good notion of how to earn money on the Internet. Well, my main source of income today comes from my business and online properties.
I can work from where I’m right and when I understand. With that in mind, I created this blog to help more people conquer the same freedom that I did.
Note: I am not saying here that you will never work again and earn money without doing anything.
What I’m saying is that you will have the Freedom to choose if you will.
And honestly, you’ll also realize how I realized, when you get there that not working and doing nothing is actually annoying. You want to work yes, but in the things that give you pleasure and satisfaction. But enough chitchat and we’ll soon see what the term means to make extra money online.
How to make money online
There are so many ways to make money online that it gets even a little difficult to get started. I will try to focus on the explanations here in what I intend to teach on this blog as the way I found to make money at home.
For example, the site template you will learn here is not something of the Google style, Facebook, Orkut, or any other social network. These are above my knowledge and for now, they are not my goal. For now…
Submarine, Saraiva, Netshoes will also not be the models to be followed – for now again – with what I’ll be teaching here. Although it is e-commerce in the purest form, these are stores with a number of resources that we mere mortals – still – do not have access. Not that a physical person cannot create a full e-commerce site. Right on the contrary.
Today there are several tools that help you with few resources and time, to assemble your own website for the sale of products. I am not using this model at the moment because I found others that I believe to be easier and more control than e-commerce stores.
What model do I use?
“Must be a blog!”
Not exactly. The model I use does not blog exactly as you know it. This, for example, is a blog. The sites that generate my income month after month, despite having some resemblance to this, are not blogs. Why not blogs? Because the sites I create Use site optimization techniques so that they have most of the access from search engines like Google, Bing, Yahoo, etc.
That said, the sites in their vast majority are yes made on blog platforms like this, WordPress. Some sites I leave comments activated, others not, AI will depend on some of the styles of the site I am creating at the moment and how long I intend to stay on top of each (because usually comments = longer maintenance time to respond and moderate Comments). But do not worry if now is not very clear because then I will show step by step, with examples, of how the sites will be assembled.
I use this model because so I get “free” traffic, organic and highly directed to the products I promote. For example, what is the chance of buying intent that you think someone who typed the search “Nike Shox cheap to sell” on Google, has to actually buy the sneakers? I’d say pretty loud. And if he finds your site by typing this term, the odds of him clicking on one of his affiliate links and buying the sneakers are great.

Now I start explaining a little better how to earn money online and you will see that after you understand, you will begin to understand why you often end up falling on some “strange sites” and because they feature “weirdest yet” designs. You will realize that nothing is by chance and that your steps were calculated by someone for you to arrive on that exact page.
To make money on the Internet – at least in the model that I will be teaching you – we will create sites focused on certain topics that we have the possibility to monetize. What topics and how will be explained in the future, step by step. For now, just know that the sites will be very specific as “office chairs” or “socks for dwarves”. You may also not have physical products, but eBooks and courses such as the niches of psychology, finance, education, etc. The important thing is to choose a theme on which your site will handle.

What happens is that you will be selling “space” on your website to advertisers. But this sale does not need to be negotiated directly with them. With one example, I think things will get clearer.
Let’s assume you create a site about “sock to dwarves.” Yes, you’re weird and you’ve created a sock site for dwarves. There you talk like a sock to dwarfs are smaller than normal socks, as you also never went to a funeral of a dwarf, etc. etc. and thereby so many, you put the following link:
* Note: I typed “half for dwarves” on the submarine and look at what appears.
* NOTE 2: This link is “clean” without my affiliate code because this site has not yet been approved by the submarine to contain affiliate links. Don’t worry about it. It will be clearer in the future. Look at the images below and soon you will understand the difference between a link with nothing, normal so to speak, and one with an affiliate cookie.
By clicking there you will be directed to the submarine page with the product in question in detail. What happens is that this link has a detail that makes all the difference in the world: your affiliate ID. See the difference between the two links:
Both links will fall on the same page, but that little detail marked at the end of the link is that makes all the difference in the world.
What does that detail mean? This “Franken” code tells the submarine at the moment that the person who clicked on your link on your site the following:
“Look, I’ve indicated the beast there, so if he buys something from you I want to get a commission from the sale… You dig? “
Basically, that’s it. You act as an online broker where instead of closing the deal directly with the customer to then pass on to the store, you indicate the recommended products through links. The advantage of this about a regular broker is that the same article that you write only once, can be read thousands of times by thousands of people over time.
Have you begun to understand the power of the Internet and why do you have a huge advantage over a normal broker? Besides you have the possibility of an effort of yours at once to surrender for a long and long time, your reach is much greater and the better, you didn’t even have to take your pajamas to do it!
Maybe you’ve already used links like that when you clicked on some site and you didn’t even know someone was gaining commission. This is normal and most people do not know what an affiliate link is. Well, even I didn’t know what it was when I started! And we must use this fact to our advantage to increase our income. As? This will be shown as your blog grows, but you can be sure you’ll learn everything – or almost everything – that you need to make money on the web.
“Is that all?”
Yes, and No. the “yes” because people tend to complicate what doesn’t need to be complicated. It seems that for something to be valid and really work, the same has to be complex, microlens and knowledge of few! Lie. Usually, the simplest things are those that work best. Warren Buffet, one of the richest men in the world, always talks about the simplicity of his choices, how he chooses companies to invest that even a child would understand how the company works.
The “no” because in this process begins to enter many other factors for creation, publication, choice of niche, choice of product to promote, etc. etc. But the basics are this:
Choice of niche > site Creation > Sales of advertising space (links, banners, etc.) > Commission > working on the Beach
Of course, there are 1 million ways to make money on the internet, with blogs, etc. There are even ways that still don’t exist and will likely appear as time passes. But we don’t need to complicate something that’s simple. Let’s first learn to do things the simplest way, and then we start to complicate things…
That’s it for now.
