Yes, it is possible to learn how to earn money online for free. The challenge for a beginner is finding legitimate opportunities through all the scams and “too-good-to-be-true” gimmicks.
The best way to make money online, free or not, is through your own website. With your own website you can promote your own products, promote others’ products for a commission, make commissions off advertising, or a variety of other ways.
Most website services do require an upfront investment, however I will show you how you can start a website for free.
Get Started: How to Earn Money Online for Free
Before We Get Started…
You will need to join a service that offers free web-hosting. They do exist, however some are more user friendly than others. The group that I use is Wealthy Affiliate. They offer a Free Starter Membership that gives you two free websites. Each service will be slightly different so I will show you how to set up a free website with Wealthy Affiliate.
Click here to Join Wealthy Affiliate to get your two free websites. You will need to verify your email before you can start building your website.
I have a step by step guide with pictures. However, if you prefer a video just click on the image below and you can watch “Create a Website in Under 30 Seconds.”
Once in Wealthy Affiliate…
Once inside the Wealthy Affiliate website you need to navigate to the page to let you create a website.
On the left side bar click on “Build a Website.”
Then click “Create a New Website”
Once you get to the right page we can start building your free website.
Step 1: Chose a domain name.
Select “A Free Website” and text box will appear.
Enter the domain name you want your site to be. I entered “davestestsite”
Step 2: Name your website.
Enter the name you want your website to be called. I like to make this similar to my domain name. Make sure it is grammatically correct.
Step 3: Pick a theme.
Browse the available themes to pick one that appeals to you. If you’re unsure about which one you want, just pick the most appealing one. You can switch themes later on if you change your mind.
Step 4: Build your website.
Click “I’m Ready, Build My Website Now!”
Wealthy Affiliate will take about a minute to build your website.
Congratulations! You have created a website for free.
Now click on “Log Me In!” to visit your website.
You will be taken to the dashboard page in WordPress. This is where you will do all the work to add pages, pictures, and everything else.
If you want to see what your website will look like to your visitors click on the “Visit Site” tab.
This is what my website looks like. Yours will look differently depending on what theme you choose.
You’ve successfully created a website but there is more that you need to do before you start making money from it. Fortunately for you, Wealthy Affiliate has 10 lessons and a ton of other training to teach you how.
I suggest that you start with lesson one to ensure that you build a foundation. If you want to learn more about WA and the programs they offer you can read my Wealthy Affiliate review.
Wealthy Affiliate will show you how to do much more than create a website… it will teach you how to earn money online for free with your website.
