How to Start In Online Business : 4 Simple Steps


Hey, Jason here, founder of this website and full time affiliate marketer since 2014.

I am literally going to show you step by step How to Start In Online Business from scratch.

I’ve personally done it myself, so I am more than qualified to share this information with you right now.

The first thing you want to do is get rid of all distractions before you start reading this article.

Yes, I am serious because this will be a life-changing moment for you. Period.

But you have to pay very close attention.

Now first things first is that you need to have the right mindset before you start.

This is for serious men and women who truly desire to start an online business.

If you are not serious, do me a favor and leave this page right now.

Yes, again, I am serious, this is not a joke.

For those of you who chose to leave this page, I would suggest that you start reading “Think and Grow Rich”, “Rich Dad Poor Dad”, and Tim Ferris’s book titled “The Four hour Work Week” ASAP.

Read this page to see how these books have shaped my mindset and allowed me to live a more fulfilled life.

They are all available on all the major bookstores websites worldwide.

Now lets continue…

The first step is to create a free account on right now.

**You will eventually need to upgrade to the premium membership which is $359 for a year since this will give you access to EVERYTHING within the platform.

This includes, state of the art hosting, websites, expert help, training resources, live video classes, and even direct access to the founders, Kyle & Carson.

You can choose this premium membership as soon as you sign up or later before your 7 days privileges have expired.

There is also a premium membership option for $49 per month.

However, the former membership option will work out to be less expensive for you.


Wealthy Affiliate sign-up homepage

When you land on the wealthy affiliate homepage, you will see a page like this:

How to Start In Online Business

Before you sign up, do yourself a favor and read the entire page from top to bottom!

Do not miss this step because I want you to know exactly what you will be doing before you sign up.

So, scroll down further.

The overview will show you the essential ingredients you need in order to get your business up and running.

I have taken a screenshot of the 4-step MAJOR process for building an online business below for you to see:

How to Start In Online Business

When you have finished reading the entire page and have gained a basic understanding of the process, it will then be time for you to signup.

NOTE: The type of business that you will be starting is an affiliate marketing business.

It DOES take time before you actually start seeing revenue, but I can tell you that when income starts coming in, it will literally snowball!

You can read more about affiliate marketing on Wikipedia if you are not familiar with the term.

Overall, though, it is a business model where people get paid when they promote someone else’s products, and earn commissions whenever a sale is made.

So, once you are ready to sign up, you should see the form at the bottom of the page which looks something like this:

Once you have successfully singed up, you will be ready to start building your online business right away!

    I love the idea of selling other people’s products and not worrying about things like shipping and inventory. It does take time and effort. A lot of people just give up to soon. I believe if you keep trying and never give up, you will be successful eventually. I’m still waiting for that snowball to start rolling. What’s the best piece of advice you would give to someone who’s been working at it for a year and still waiting to start earning consistently?

  2. Dave says:

    Hey Jason,

    I am really interested in this oopportunity, seems truly life changing to me, but I don’t have the $359 right now.

    Isn’t there a lower package that I can be using as I save up for the $359? Please help me out, I am very, very interested.

    Waiting for your response,


  3. David says:

    This is all very interesting. I was wondering which companies people should become affiliates for. And how often affiliate marketers get paid. I would think that writing interesting posts would be both a science and an art. How do you write posts that people find naturally that are both interesting and that pay you well?

  4. Michael says:

    Thanks for laying out these 4 simple steps on how anyone can start an online business. I know many people when they first consider doing it, get overwhelmed and confused by all the different options and ways to do this.

    Like you said however, all you need is a nice / interest, website, a way to bring people to your website, then last of all something to sell to them.

    I will agree 100% WA is one of the easiest and best places to learn and start an internet business.

  5. Steve & Kris says:

    As a Wealthy Affiliate member myself, I can’t agree with you more. I love the community. I think you provided a great introduction to Wealthy Affiliate. The most important thing for people to know is that you do have to work hard at this. I think you pointed that out when you said only serious people should read on! This is not a get rich quick deal. The tools and knowledge base is great within the community. You just need a passion to write about and I think most people can do that if they really put their mind to it. You have proven that the system definitely works. Best of luck to you and thanks for sharing.

  6. Krystye Kearney says:

    I love your article. I have been a premium member on WA for a few months now and I love it. Your review was fun and easy to read and you really got me excited about WA even though I am already a member you had me ready to sing up again. The pictures you used were great in helping visualize the WA journey.

    Thank you for not just another make money on line review.

  7. Manny says:

    Hi Jason

    Thanks for putting that together! It really seems like that can be done by anyone. Do I need any kind of education in online business to get it done?

    Funny, but my mum is looking for a side income but literally has no clue. She juuuust manages to work on the pc to do basic stuff.

    Could this be something for her even?

    Thanks again man 🙂


  8. Ed says:

    “How To Start In Online Business: 4 Simple Steps” is a well-written article. Affiliate Marketing has interested me for some time now.
    How much time do you have to spend to be successful at it?
    You mentioned that it takes time before revenue starts coming in but then it snowballs. How long does it take and how much money is a “snowball”, lol?
    Thanks for the great information.

  9. Laura says:

    Thanks for your post — this looks like a great product. Can you tell me, though, what kind of training is provided? Do they cover things like PPC, SEO and how to build a following? I am looking to get some training with basic marketing and would prefer not to invest in multiple courses. Thanks for any advice or insights you can include!

    • Jason says:

      It’s truly a great product, Laura — you are going to absolutely love what is offered there!

      Not only do they cover PPC, SEO and how to build a social following, but they also offer state of the art hosting, websites, expert help, training resources, live video classes, and even access to the founders, Kyle & Carson.

      You will appreciate that everything is centralized under one umbrella, with the exception of an email autoresponder. And who knows, maybe the owners are planning on implementing one in the near future.

  10. jacob says:

    This post was so useful as it made the entire process of setting up an online business and making money online very simple. 

    I previously thought of it as an extremely complicated thing to do but I now know that it’s not at all difficult. 

    I also really enjoyed the writing style of the article as you managed to be thorough yet still keep the article nice and concise.

    Would you recommend a beginner to get into local client SEO or affiliate marketing?

    • Jason says:

      I am pleased to know that you found my article simple to understand – that was really the goal.

      And as you can see for yourself: it is just not that complicated at all.  People just need to be laser focused on achieving their goals.

      I would definitely recommend affiliate marketing to anyone just starting out, since the process is much easier to get the ball rolling.  Local client SEO would be recommended for someone who already has experience building online businesses. 

  11. Dale says:

    With the way the world is going it seems so many people want to make money online. That includes myself.

    It feels like there are so many things and no one knows what is great and what isnt so great. I am scared of scams.

    It does seem that wealthy affiliate is a good choice and reading the words on your page is really helping me get closer to a decision.

    • Jason says:

      I agree with your points here, Dale…the online money making industry can be very crafty, especially to people who are just starting out.

      You will find a great home to learn all about the business of online marketing from the training at Wealthy Affiliate.

      It’s a spam and scam free environment which only cares about seeing it’s members succeed.

      All the best to you as you get familiar with using the platform.

  12. Garen says:

    Hey Jason,

    Wow, just saw you used a screenshot of my response, which is kind of neat 🙂

    Getting distracted when you’re online is a big problem for me. There is so much to do and something always distracts me. Do you use any apps or extensions to keep you on track when you’re working online though?

    Been with Wealthy Affiliate since 2009 and love it. No other place where you can learn affiliate marketing, host your websites, and get 1 on 1 help with people that have succeeded in the affiliate marketing industry.

    • Jason says:

      It’s awesome to have you stopping by, Garen.  And, yeah, I thought your response was appropriate to give other readers a solid perspective on the pros associated with an online business.

      It’s true that it can be very difficult to not get distracted.  Personally though, I don’t use any special apps, software, nor extensions to remedy this.

      What I will normally do is disable my notifications (email, Facebook, twitter, etc) as well as putting my phone on airplane mode or just simply turning it off.

      I then continue to focus using the good old fashioned “will power”.

      I am glad that you have discovered wealthy affiliate for yourself and have come to love the platform just like myself.  The training received there may be the most comprehensive one I’ve seen online.

      Thanks again for chiming in.  I will be sure to connect with you on the inside 🙂

  13. Mubs says:

    Hi Jason, thanks for this easy to follow post. It puts alot of things into perspective. I have also gotten into the affiliate marketing business and so far it’s been great. I have learned various new things, just waiting for the revenue to start coming in.

    I know it will happen if continue to be consistent and disciplined .

    How long did it take you before you started doing this full time?

    • Jason says:

      Hey, Mubs!

      Thanks for your feedback.  

      Yeah, I know that once you are being persistent and consistent with your business, you will without a doubt go far.

      For me, it took roughly around the 7 month mark after putting in consistent work on my site to start considering taking this as a full time career. 

      Hard work with persistence really does pay off 🙂

  14. Steve says:

    Great article. I love how you started the article. If you are not serious about starting a real business then you might as well move on. There is no program that is going to help you succeed if you are not serious about succeeding. Plus those 2 books are great reading for any one considering to start a business.

    Wealthy Affiliate is a great choice for building an online business. Their training is some of the best online. I’ve been with Wealthy Affiliate for over 3 years and highly recommend the program.

    • Jason says:

      Yeah, Steve. That’s the whole idea. Why start a business if you are not going to be serious about it? It would just be a waste of time if you do otherwise.

      Wealthy affiliate is truly the best place I see especially for newbies to start building out their online presence and getting their websites to generate income.

      Thanks for your comment.

  15. SJ says:

    Hi Jason

    Thanks for stepping through the four steps to start an online business. It truly is simple as you’ve put it.

    The whole idea of starting an online business can be so daunting but having seen the whole process I feel like anyone can do it.

    What has your favourite thing been about having an online business since 2014?

    • Jason says:

      Yes, it’s true that starting an online business is simple with the four steps which I have mentioned, but it does takes time to get it earning revenue on a consistent basis.

      What I personally love about having my own online business is the freedom I have to spend with family and doing the things that really matter to our lives.

  16. Josh Ellery says:

    This is one of the easiest ways you could have put it Jason. Wealthy Affiliate just simply provides everything you need to start a business and its close to the perfect platform. 

    You have to learn and find out what niche you want to be in of course. I love your suggestion to read “rich dad poor dad” as well. It is the perfect message for any new entrepreneurs 🙂

    Thank you for writing this important article.

  17. Bill says:

    Hey Jason,
    There’s definitely a fair amount of skepticism that a person must use when evaluating the different sites that claim to teach you how to “make money online”. After reading through this article, it makes me feel pretty confident of the legitimacy of Wealthy Affiliate since you mentioned that the owners are willing to offer their help whenever needed. I think I’ll give it a shot.

    • Jason says:

      Yeah, I know exactly what you mean, Bill.

      Being at Wealthy Affiliate will really help you to stay away from fluff and actually teach you to build an online business that you will be proud of.

      I look forward to seeing you inside the platform.

  18. burleyboy says:

    You mentioned the 4 steps to creating an online business and touched on choosing an interest. I think this has been the hardest part for me and many others. I am always trying to think of things that are interesting to me but will actually be able to sell. How would you suggest trying to pick an interest that others will actually pay for.

    • Jason says:

      Hey, Burleyboy,

      As it relates to choosing a niche; wealthy affiliate provides a full training on the subject. It shows you how to find niches and narrow it down so that you can laser target your audience. The full training really digs deep into niches, so get started as soon as you can and learn the process.

  19. Marco SJ says:

    This is interesting. Affiliate Marketing seems like a nice way to get started in owning an Online Business.

    Here’s my concern though: Wouldn’t Affiliate Marketing only be effective though, if you are able to bring in a lot of traffic to your website? How does Wealthy Affiliate help with this?

    • Jason says:

      Affiliate marketing is definitly a great way to start with an online business, Marco.

      Since discovering the business model back in 2014, I have fallen in love with it and will just keep doing it since it has proven to be so profitable.

      It’s true that with affiliate marketing, you need a lot of traffic to make sales.  Wealthy Affiliate shows it’s members how to get a lot of traffic by using free methods such as SEO and social media. 

      There are also optional paid methods such as PPC which the lessons covers in full details + you will be able to watch over the shoulder of the live video coach who shows you how to implement everything in a step-by-step format.

      You can really do great with what you will learn inside the community.

    It’s always profitable to choose an interest that would be of great benefits to many people. This is crucial for your online success if you are just starting a website of your own. You can quickly grow your audience in no time with such a captivating interest. The website you create should be a customized one and look professional to ensure that a large community is built up for your niche. By optimizing your website and making it search engine friendly, potential customers must surely visit from time to time and you will earn revenue.

    Wealthy Affiliate has truly gone a long way in helping online entrepreneurs discover and develop their potentials towards building an online success through the different levels of simplified training resources made available to both free and premium members. There is no platform like this online that genuinely creates wide opportunities for anyone in any part of the world. I am now considering to add a custom domain to my .siterubix website. Would it be cheaper to buy domain names at Wealthy Affiliate than elsewhere? What are other benefits to derive compared to buying from other domain registrars?

  21. Sameer khan says:

    Thanks for sharing this article. This is really helpful.

    I wish I could had read this last year. Because someone trap me in the scam where I had lost $550.

    I need to start again. Can you please tell me Is free starter account available for every country?

    What benefits should I get as a free member?

    • Jason says:

      Sorry to hear about your negative experience, Sameer.  It’s just so sad to know that there are so many scams out there preying on innocent people.

      Anyways, the free starter membership is not available to all countries, due to high level of spams.  You can go through the full WA review here and you will see the list of countries outlined.

      There are many benefits included in the Starter membership.  This includes 2 totally free WordPress Siterubix websites along with hosting, support, and premium access for the first 7 days.

      This chart here will show you the main differences between the 2 membership levels.

      Much success to you as you continue with your online experience.

  22. Eric Chen says:

    Hello Jason,

    Thanks for sharing your article! I’m new to online marketing and your website really gave me the courage to start.

    There are too many scams and schemes on the internet and it’s quite discouraging! I almost gave up until I stumbled upon your website.

    Wealthy affiliate seems to be a very reputable company and because it’s free! I’ll give it a try.


    • Jason says:

      Hey, Eric,

      I know how frustrating it can be when on the search for legitimate work at home opportunities and I am glad that you were able to find my article.

      You can be rest assured that WA is different and you will see it once you decide to join the community.

      Stop by my profile and let me know if you made it ok.  I will help you out as much as possible.

  23. Emmy says:

    Being in Wealthy affiliate has helped me to begin an online business that I look forward to working on my online business every other day. And you know you can be involved in as many niches as possible and can work from any where. 

    I have a question though: What are the possible red flags for identifying the so called lucrative scams out there?

    • Jason says:

      Thanks for stopping by, Emmy and glad to know that you have started your online business with Wealthy Affiliate!

      Regarding your question about online scams: I have actually written a post here that answers this very question.

      I know that once you follow the lessons to the letter that you are going to be the next success story.

      All the best!

  24. Cameron says:

    Great post! I’m glad I came across this post, I have actually recently joined Wealthy Affiliate and have absolutely loved everything it offers to build an online business!

    As I am newer to the platform, I’m always seeking advice and input. What is your experience or knowledge of about how much you can make following Wealthy Affiliate’s training tools and resources?

    I’ll be sure to follow you and keep in touch on the inside! Thanks for the confirming post about Wealthy Affiliate!

    • Jason says:

      Thanks for you comment, Cameron.

      With starting a business with Wealthy Affiliate, there is not really a set amount of money that I can say you will earn because it’s not like a job that you get paid by the hour.

      It will definitely depend on your niche, work ethic and desire to succeed.  All I know is that all who choose to follow the training and consistently work on their website will earn online commissions.

      I have seen various amount of proof of earnings and it is always based on how much time & effort is put into the business.

      I’ll connect with you inside.
