The Best Ways on How to Make Money Online


Making money online is really a super actual topic nowadays like it was many years ago. Almost everyone wants to make money online because it gives you freedom and financial independence.

And we all want to be financially independent and free from obligations that we have in our daily job.

But it’s not easy to start making money because when you first enter online world you come across many low quality programs, scams or so called gurus that are trying to scam you.

Very often they provide zero or little value and even worse they leave you without support. This is really very bad because without support you will never achieve anything online.

Following training or online webinars or is not enough for getting results. Support is a crucial part of an online business.

In this article I’m going to talk about the best ways on how to make money online in 2017 and 2018 and I will show you only the best programs that I’ve come across over the past 4 years.

There is no easy money

At the end of the day there are many ways you can make money online. Some methods work well while other methods don’t work at all.

Some methods work very well for some people while they don’t work for others. But one simple thing you MUST keep in mind: there is no easy money when it to comes to making money online.

Like everything else in life it takes time, effort and continuous work to make money online. But if making money online is hard then what makes it different from making money in real life?

Why you should get into the online world?

Is it really possible to make money online?

How much money can you make online?

How much effort is required for this?

What programs should you join in order to get results as quick as possible?

These are the common questions people ask when they are looking for make money opportunities online.

I asked the same questions when I got started a few years ago.

So, I perfectly understand you and I know what you want to know to get the peace of mind before you decide to invest your money and effort.


Programs are different but the outcome is the same

Let’s start our discussion or conversation. I will try to write my article in a natural way so you can stay tuned and without boring you.

Believe me, I’m practical guy and I don’t like blah blah blah. I only promote programs that work, that are legit, that have been around for many years and have a proven track record.

I will be talking about programs that require effort and time and some monetary investment of course. Without investment you can’t achieve anything serious in your online business.

Some of the programs I’m going to talk about allow free trial. But free trial is just your first step into the online world. You must understand that there can’t be much value in a free account.

If you are not ready to invest let’s say $50 per month in your online business while spending a few hundred bucks per month for useless things like we all do then you can’t expect anything in terms of income from your online efforts.

You must invest in your online education, some necessary tools that will help you take your business to another level and finally become a full time online entrepreneur.

You will do it for YOURSELF, not for me or someone else. You will be investing in your future!


Your approach is what matters

I will also be talking about programs that are going to help you get started and set you in the right direction so you can avoid wasting your money and effort in the wrong direction that will take you nowhere. I tried some of these programs myself.

Some programs I didn’t BUT my friends have tried them and I trust them. I know exactly that those programs work very well. Like I said, they have a proven track record.

Some of them I’m going to try too to expand my business. So, I’m not going to promote useless stuff. Don’t worry.

I will also be talking about the difference among all these programs and the prices so you can decide which one fits your needs and possibilities. All these programs are equally good.

The difference is in the approach that they teach you. Some programs focus more on one approach while other programs focus more on another approach.

But all their methods are totally legit and proven. They give results IF you apply what they teach. If you don’t apply, if you don’t follow exactly what they teach then you won’t get any results at all.

Don’t make that mistake. Because some people read text tutorials or watch video lessons but they don’t practice what they learn simply because they don’t believe it will work.

Then they start to complain that the program is bad or useless. The problem is in their approach.

They don’t believe, they are lazy, they don’t treat it seriously. And that’s why they never achieve anything in their life. Don’t be that type of person.

Methods of making money online

Methods of making money online are really different. In this article I’m not going to talk about online paid surveys or cash back sites.

Though it’s absolutely legit I prefer not to waste my precious time on such useless things. I mean useless because in terms of income this type of opportunities are very limited.

That’s why I never participate in such programs. Because I know that I can make way more money by learning and doing things that are way more effective.

I’m going to talk about programs that can make you a lot of money.

All methods that I’m going to describe are related to affiliate marketing, i.e. the most effective and proven method of making money online.





METHOD # 1. Affiliate marketing through SEO ( search engine optimization).

SEO means your main task will be writing articles : tutorials, product reviews, case studies, all related to your chosen niche ( hobby or interest), getting them ranked in top 10 of Google or Yahoo and then getting free highly targeted traffic to your website.

This method is extremely powerful and can make you a lot of money without spending a dime. The only downside of this method is that it takes months in order to start getting massive traffic from search engines.

If you work hard you can get results within 1,2 years. But it’s worth the effort. Because when you start getting traffic you will be getting it for years.

The best program that I know and have tried myself is Wealthy Affiliate. This program does really work. I know it from my personal experience.

But Wealthy Affiliate doesn’t teach only one method – SEO. It does teach also local marketing, video marketing, social marketing, paid traffic (PPC). You can even learn email marketing.

But the main focus of this program is on SEO and creating quality content. As I said, this method is extremely powerful and I can’t stress this enough.

This program also provides website hosting service, keyword research tool, weekly live classes, super responsive support, website builder, live chat and more.

You can learn more details in this article. It will cost you $19- first month and then $49 per month.

Or you can choose a one time payment of $350 (yearly payment) and save some money. Free trial is available too.


site build it




Another similar program is Site Build it or Sitesell or Solo Build it. This program is also an extremely powerful and provides almost the same value that Wealthy Affiliate does.

The difference of Site Build it from Wealthy Affiliate is that Site Build it ( Solo Build it) teaches a little more advanced stuff, provides autoresponder service.

It also comes with 90 day money back guarantee. It has many success stories and has been around since 2000 with a proven track record.

It will cost you $29 per month or $299 – yearly payment. Free trial is available.




Another similar program is Affilorama that has been online since 2005. It will cost you $67 per month. Free trial is available.

Affilorama is an affiliate marketing course both for new and advanced affiliate marketers. They have tools, support, live chat.

Affilorama basic membership doesn’t include everything. They have some other product, their biggest one that will cost you another $997.

This upsell (Affilojetpack) will free you from creating content for your website and organizing your email marketing campaign. In fact, Affilojetpack is the combination of these two important features.

This is a done for you stuff. But the price is not cheap. I perfectly understand. If time of essence for you then you need to check this upsell. This package also includes a hosting, website setup and more.

In short, the Jetpack just comes with “done for you” type of stuff, which is the regular old stuff that we do on our own as bloggers, so it’s really beneficial for those that don’t like to write or anything else that it takes to start a blog. You can join Affilorama here.



Get Started Here


Another powerful package is Affiloblueprint that will cost you $197. The advantage is that you won’t be paying monthly ($67). You pay only once and that’s it. The package is really powerful and get your business to the next level.


niche site


METHOD # 2. Affiliate marketing through ready made niche website. Ready made niche website means you don’t need to build a site, customize it or do a keyword research, niche research, plugin installation.

All this can be done for you by Dom Wells, a friend of mine from HPD (Human Proof Designs). This company has already built and launched several hundred sites.

HPD will not only help you get started online it will be helping you continuously down the road so you can start making money from your niche website.

If you don’t like writing HPD can do this for you too. HPD has a complete package for creating quality content.

Content will be 100% unique, SEO friendly, well researched for obtaining high rankings in search engines. And the prices are reasonable.

I understand that it will cost you some money but you need to decide what you want.

Either you must write your content yourself or you must hire someone who will create content for you.

This someone must be someone you can trust and I believe you can trust Dom Wells from Human Proof Designs.

HPD also provides quality backlink service to improve your website rankings. In short, if you start your online business with HPD you will be in good hands.

They know what they are doing and you can achieve your financial goals if you stick to their team.


METHOD # 3. Affiliate marketing through email marketing and building an audience. This is the most effective method of making money online and can make you a lot of money.

I can recommend you two programs that are legit and have a good reputation in online space. One is Affilojetpack and the other one is MLSP ( My Lead System Pro).

AffiloJetPack is an excellent choice for both new and advanced affiliate marketers. It’s an advanced course for email marketers.

Email marketing is extremely important for anyone looking for ways to increase their income and take their online business to the next level.

The good news is that there are no upsells whatsoever, good support, step-by-step training. In short, Affilojetpack is a solid program on affiliate marketing.

Next program is MLSP. MLSP is at a whole new level and they teach stuff for more advanced marketers.

MLSP teaches a method of building your audience, engaging them, and then making the sale, which is complete genius.

So instead of waiting forever to get traffic through a blog, you build your audience first and then give them the content.

You can actually get the info within their University membership which is only $49.97/month. The blogging platform and other stuff comes with Mastery but it’s not necessary to get the basics.

However, as an affiliate in the work from home niche, they give you all types of products that you can promote as a Mastery member, which gives you 100% commissions if you make a sale.

Tons of value and I can’t even explain them all as it’s just insane! BTW, MLSP has their autoresponder which is free until you reach like 500 subscribers.

In short, MLSP is a great way to build your online business and start making money as quick as possible.

But in order to take advantage of the MLSP Mastery you need to pay $150 monthly. So, it’s not cheap and not everyone can afford it.

Fortunately, you can start with MLSP University which is only $49 per month.


Final word on the Best Ways on How to Make Money Online in 2017 and 2018

You can choose any program that I’ve described above. All of them are legit. You can get started in any of these programs BUT you must understand that there is no easy money.

All these programs equally require from you effort, time, dedication and monetary investment.

Wealthy Affiliate is a great choice to get started online. I’ve been a member of WA since 2013 and thanks to Wealthy Affiliate I’m making money.

The program has a fantastic support and very helpful and friendly community. If you’re serious about starting making money online I highly recommend to start with Wealthy Affiliate.

And I forgot to mention that they have a free trial within the first 7 days.

Other programs, such as MLSP is even better than Wealthy Affiliate but they have two memberships: $49 and $149 per month.

One is affordable while another membership which is $149 per month is not affordable for everyone. But this program is simply awesome. If you can afford it go and give it a try.

Finally, I gave you all best options and you are free to choose any of them. I promise if you follow and take action you will be making money online.

I can’t promise how much you will be making but you will be making enough money.

You don’t need to do any research like I did. This research took me years. You only need to learn and take action.

If you still have any questions feel free to send me a message or leave your comment below and I will respond shortly.

    After how long does one get paid in WA am already a fan and wanna join,plus am in East Africa Kenya,hope that aint a problem

    • Rufat says:

      Hi Joseph,

      Kenya is among countries that don’t have free access to WA. Unfortunately… I can’t tell you when you get paid. It depends on your skills and taking action on what you learn. Legit programs never give any guarantees. It’s unethical. WA has everything required for you to achieve success online. It depends on your effort and positive mind.

  2. Dorcas says:

    Can i do any of this from Nigeria? Who gets to pay me for traffic? My questions may sound dumb buy answer please. Thanks

    • Rufat says:

      Yes, of course you can. There is no restriction. If you have an issue let me know and I will try to help you out.

  3. Best Ways To Make Money In USA In 2018 says:

    Hey, very useful post. great work.
    I m working as a freelancer and earning good money from home and I m also looking for other ways to earn some good money. I want to become an affiliate marketer and method no 3 is perfect for me.This post will help me a lot.
    Have a nice day.

    • Rufat says:

      I’m really happy I could help you. Remember, I mentioned 2 programs under no 3. One requires monthly payments and the other one is one time payment. You can try one program or both if you can afford. I would try both of them. The more knowledge you get the more chances that you can achieve your goals. Knowledge is power.

  4. Dr. Doug says:

    Thanks for working through so many options for programs that support online work. Its pretty overwhelming and almost like you have to take a course on what online training you can take. You talk very highly about MLSP and Im wondering if you could mention the top reason you prefer them?

    • Rufat says:

      First, like everything in life internet marketing start with education because without a proper education you can’t achieve anything. When it comes to the programs I’ve mentioned here all of them are great. For example, WA is a good start for newbies. It’s very friendly and support is second to none in the industry. Other programs such as Solo Build it!, Affilorama, Affiloblueprint are great both for newbies and advanced. MLSP is mostly for advanced marketers but it’s a little expensive. You can choose either of these programs according to your budget. If you have questions you can always shoot me a message and I will try to help.

  5. Louella Scott says:

    Rufat, thank you for your quick response. It is refreshing to find someone who wants to help others learn how to make money online and not make the mistake of being scammed. My family is due to arrive for the Thanksgiving holiday any minute. I will be signing up FrIday after my family leaves.
    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
    I’m looking forward to learning all i can, with the support of a warm legitimate community of people.
    Sincerely, Louella

    • Rufat says:

      You’re very welcome Louella. I wish you all the best and hope to see inside Wealthy Affiliate. I will personally welcome you once you’ve created your free account. Let me know if you have any other questions.

  6. Louella Scott says:

    I’m so glad I read your information, I came too close to getting scammed by a an ad for “post links from anywhere”, “make more money than you’ll ever need” and on & on it went. I’m interested in WA and am seriously thinking about joining if I like the free trial offer. My question is what kind of computer would I need to purchase in order to do this kind of work? Currently I have a tablet. Would a lap-top work or do I need a desk top? Please be specific about how much memory, rams, drive, etc. I am a 64 yr old disabled lady who does not know much about purchasing a computer, printer etc. Sure would appreciate any advice you could give me to get started, with all the “black Friday” sales going on now it would be a good time to purchase one. I don’t need alot of “bells & whistles” just a good solid system so i can l take the the course & put to use all I learn, so I too can make some much needed extra money. Thanking you in advance, Louella

    • Rufat says:

      Hi Louella,

      I’m glad you are serious about starting your online business and I really want to help you get started online on the right foot. Please be aware my recommended program is legit. It’s not a get rich quick program. When it comes to the computer you need to get started your tablet is a good choice for browsing the web and watch lessons inside my recommended program. But you will need to do some work and for this you need a laptop. You don’t need to worry much about memory, rams, drive, etc. Just buy any new laptop of 2017 with at least 4 gb ram, i5 processor and 500 gb drive. This will be totally enough for the work. I suppose it will be around $400. Black Friday is the best time for a huge discount. But first create your free account here

    This is the best list of earning some good money.
    Keep sharing with us.

  8. Miles says:

    Great content! Anyone serious about making money online should definitely check out Affilorama though. It teaches you how to make serious money online w/ affiliate marketing. I quit my job and now I make ALOT more money online 🙂

    • Rufat says:

      I’m glad you’re having success with Affilorama. I know it’s a good program for hard workers and action takers.

  9. Jojo says:

    It is true that there is no easy money in online marketing. You might be lucky and make some money by putting up an ad somewhere and linking it to a merchant but it will never last. You will make some money (or loose some) but if you want a steady regular income then there is always work to be done.
    However, once things are correctly set up, you can make a fair bit of money without very much work, but it will take time and effort to get to that stage.
    Thanks for a good post.

    • Rufat says:

      I agree that you can have some luck and make some money but it won’t last long. If you want to make money on a regular basis you need to build the foundation of your online business. This will surely take months or may be even 1,2 years. For maximum results it can take even 3,4 years. And it’s also true that once you set up things correctly you can start making money consistently without much work. You still need to understand clearly what you are doing now and what to expect from your business in future.

  10. jacob says:

    there are so many different ways to make money online that i was getting overwhelmed at deciding which one is most reliable and the best way at making good money.

    after reading this article i know that i need to stick with one method in order to actually see success.

    do you have any posts talking about local client seo in detail and how to get into it as that it the method of making money that i really want to get into.


    • Rufat says:

      You are right. Ways are different, programs are endless. You can choose any of them but if you don’t stick to it your success will be short term if at all. Regarding local SEO if you join WA there are live classes every week. Some video classes are about local SEO. You can learn a lot of new things and plus you can provide SEO services for local companies in your area.
