Making money online by selling products

In this post, I will show how you can learn to sell products online. There are hundreds of products that you can choose to either promote or to sell. I have been searching for a great way to learn to sell any product or service. Nowadays the Internet is like the info line or a lifeline. It is an open source to help people’s dreams and to become independent while assisting people to find what they need or want. As with everything in life, no one is born with knowledge, so learning any new skill requires proper training to become successful at it. You also need to know this is not a get rich scam and you will not become rich all of a sudden. That is not the purpose of the training that I am sharing with you. So, let’s get rolling.

When people buy products they look for quality, a trusted brand, best reviews, word of mouth, a friend’s recommendation, or sometimes the best price, specials, or irresistible discounts.

You may be wondering how do you start?

You need four (4) basics steps as your foundation:

  1. A Niche, a topic or a product, – something you are passionate about
  2. Build a Website
  3. Attract Visitors
  4. Generate Revenue

Do you have to sell a product of your own?

If you are new to selling products, you may be wondering. Do I need my product?

The answer is no. You can market any product by joining free affiliate programs that many companies offer, and they compensate you for every sale that a visitor to your website buys. If you display ads on your site or you write genuine reviews, and excellent content, when visitors click on your ads, the ads have a link with a unique tracking code that belongs to you. You can market the products on your site, social media, advertisements, free organic traffic. We will be exploring shortly some of the most popular companies that carry millions of products that you can market.

What is an Affiliate Marketer?

In the affiliate world, you are the link, or the connector, between customers and companies selling products. There are millions of people searching for good quality products online. I have to say, that back in the ’90s, not in a million years I dreamed that I would be buying many products online, but guess what, like myself millions of people I often search the Internet for good products. Here is where you can come into play. However, before we discuss how you can be part of it, let’s talk about Affiliate Marketing and how you can become a successful marketer.

Buying and selling consumer goods has never been easier than now, the difference from the old days is that we have the convenience of the internet and with the click of a button we can buy or sell products, and services without having to leave the comfort of our home. Back in the old days, people were selling by telephone, door to door, magazines, and newspaper. I became a Memorial Counselor selling cemetery plots, and I was doing in-home presentations, door knocking, cold calling, and through friend referrals. I was successful, but again it did require training and the motivation to do it. Many times I found myself all alone having to learn the ins and outs of selling out in the field and with much competition. It was hard work! I even try selling make-up products with ever-changing brochures that were difficult to follow and the prices changing from campaign to campaign. The internet and Affiliate Marketing is a dream come true for me in every possible way by allowing me to work from home and not be driving around to find customers. Finding Wealthy Affiliate has been a fantastic experience for me so far, and I’ve learned so much already.

Take action today. Please don’t delay, give it a try, after all, is free to start.

  3. There are many ways to earn money online and the market is only growing. Wealthy Affiliate gave me the tools to build my own website and allowed me to test the product before committing my money to the program. Affiliate marketing has the added advantage over say drop shipping in that it is far less capital intensive and allows newbies like myself to learn about the online world without risking all our savings to do so.

    In my opinion, everyone interested in online business should check WA out and test the free product to see if its for you or not.

  6. Hey there,

    Affiliate marketing is one of the best ways to make money online. You’ve explained the concept very well. It does take time and it needs work to build an audience, drive traffic and start selling. But, if you stay focus, consistent and follow the training, you will, in time, get the results you want 🙂



    • Hey Marios,

      I totally agree with you and thank you for reading my post. It does take time to create great content and drive traffic to any site, and most importantly bringing value to your visitors and providing excellent information is vital.

      Again, many thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment. 


  7. Hi Ana.

    Wow this is a great article. The info is very clear and well organised. 
    Crystal clear explanation about affiliate marketing as well as the Wealthy Affiliate program, what it is and how it works.
    Wealthy Affiliate seems to be a really great value for the money and not a get rich quick scheme.
    Wish you all the best

    • Hi Geni,

      Thank you for your comment. Glad you enjoyed the article.

      Wealthy Affiliate rocks! …. Love the training.


  8. Great review. Ana I myself just finished my review not long ago and it’s nowhere compared to yours. I was having problems trying to upload the starter vs premium chart. I think it looks great in the post. Your content is reader-friendly and your character bounces off of every sentence that you write.  If there are any flaws it’s only the spacing in the paragraphs. Other than that you have a nice post with enough information to get a sign-up. Way to go Ana keep up the great work .👍😉💯

    • Hi Tavares,

      Thank you for your very nice comment.

      There is a lot to digest when setting up website etc, and I am working on things like paragraph spacing. I do appreciate you catching that.

      You can drop me a line in the chat room or PM me. Perhaps I may be able to help in some small way.
