How to Earn Money working at home


There are thousands of websites promising to give you the secrets to making a fortune online. Every day millions of dollars change hands, thousands of people live the internet lifestyle and make a good living online.

It’s not an impossible dream, real people are making real money and it’s not some magical illusion. But there are also many others who are making nothing!

The Trick

The ‘trick’ however, is to know what to do and to replicate that success process. In other words, how to really “stay home & make money“.

How to Earn Money Working at HomeLet’s get one thing clear, earning money from home is NOT a push button, mouse clicking, do nothing – EASY process. 

You are going to need to work hard learning (or perhaps unlearning) internet marketing, website construction, content creation, traffic generation and many other things before you can expect to make money online.


How to Earn Money Working at HomeBecause the only place where money comes before work – is in the dictionary (unless it’s a scam). Do the work and the money will come. Get the education, learn the “how” and implement what you learn and success will follow.

Almost anyone can learn how to make a living online without needing to scam anyone, without having to join up friends & family, or selling products or services you don’t believe in.

Getting the Right Information

It’s all about getting the right information and implementing successful strategies that lead to financial success. What you need is real information, from real people, making real money. Not hype, no B.S and not promises of making millions overnight – because that’s never going to happen!

To succeed online, you only need to open your mind to learning, and by this we mean, be “teachable  

No Short Cuts

Sure, there are people who want to reinvent the wheel – before they have actually built their own. People who want instant short cuts, because they think there is a better way – before they have seen any success, from the process being taught.

If you are one of those people and if you want immediate-overnight-success. Or are not prepared to follow the proven steps.  Then what I’m about to tell you next, will not be of interest to you. You need to go find some place else.

Getting an Education

To be a success online, you should be prepared to put in the most time during the first few months of getting your education. You need to invest time in learning stay home make moneythe ‘smart‘ ways to build websites. Learning how to promote them, how to create engaging content and how to use search engine optimization tools,  in order to build a long term sustainable online income.

You’ll also need to learn a variety of different strategies and methodology, which are not just limited to creating websites and product promotion. 

Where to Begin?

What Makes This Program So Good?

Peter V Crisp

Prior to getting this education, I had been struggling along, going from one ‘Bright Shiny Object’ (BSO) to the next, being scammed and ripped-off and getting very frustrated, trying to learn everything by myself. I had over a dozen websites, yet none of them ranked in Google nor made any money, no matter how much traffic I bought or which “Guru’s” program I followed. – Why? Because I didn’t know what I was doing!


Results You Can See

However, once I began with Wealthy Affiliates and began implementing what I was learning and stopped chasing BSO’s. Something amazing happened! Not only did everything CHANGE, not only did I learn how to get my website to rank on Google, but I now have multiple pages ranking in Google; Take a look at the screenshot below: 

How to Earn Money Working at Home

This is for pages on the very website you are on now. WOW!! – This is the result of using the information that YOU could soon be learning.

Now, that I am getting this education, together with an awesome Keyword research tool I can get page one rankings fairly regularly. – Not every time mind you, because sometimes the competition is really tough, but certainly far more often, than not, I can get my posts to rank very well and as you can see here, many of them on page one.

“There are 23 page one rankings for this particular website and many other posts are on pages two, three, five etc.  – But due to space I have only shown ten”.

Here’s More Proof as to the Program’s Value

Most people would be pretty excited to get any page on page one of Google and who wouldn’t want that.  However with the right education, tools and a little work you could get four (or more) posts on the first page of Google (see Screenshot below;)stay home make money

More Evidence

I even wrote a book that I have managed to get on page one of Google with a post called Best Online Success Secret. You can see the actual page one Google ranking in the screenshot below;

Evidence to prove the value of the ‘right education‘ and tools can have to achieve success online. So what is the best affiliate marketing program for beginners and where do you find one?  I can give you the answer here with another post on page one on Google (see screenshot below)

    I am with Affiliate Wealth and have only been on it for about two weeks. I have started an on line site. I do post on a daily basis but do not get much traffic. I have just signed up with “Twitter” and still not much traffic. Should I just keep working and try to advertise more.
    Any information would be appreciated.

    • Peter

      Hi Wendy Thanks for your question Interestingly Kyle has just posted this:… which pretty much asnwers your question.

      But yes just keeping working it because this is not about overnight success. It is about building a long term sustainable long term income and you are just building the foundations so it will be a while yet before you start to see any measurable progress. 🙂

  • Ananomyx

    a lot of people are not aware of the awesome opportunities that are available in online marketing. With over 2 billion people connected to the internet there is an enormous amount of untapped wealth waiting for him who is willing to put in the time.

  • Trevor

    Nice post Peter. It can be so difficult to weed through all of the scams out there. It’s nice to see a post so honest about how it does take hard work to make affiliate money online, but that anyone can do it if they learn the systems! Keep up the good work helping people follow their passions and achieve financial independence!

    • Peter

      Thanks Trevor, appreciate the feedback. Yes making money online is not a get quick rich scheme, but a long term investment in both time and effort, however the payoff can be enormous. 🙂

  • Mark

    Hi Peter
    This is an excellent article about how to earn money working at home.
    It’s full of clear tips and guidance and gives anybody who is thinking of making money online lots of ideas about what to look out for in a genuine opportunity and how to look out for scams.
    I like that you emphasise that it takes a lot of time and work to make a breakthrough so people should be prepared for it.
    Does your training and keyword tool really help you get all those articles on google’s top pages?

    • Peter

      Hello Mark… ha ha YES of course! That’s why they are there, to show real results from the real world, using real tools. Thanks for your comments 🙂

  • Chris

    Hi Peter, I just wanted to ‘bother you’ with one more question before I decide if this Wealthy Affiliate is for me or not.
    You mentioned the education is built on a community – would I be able to contact you there for help?
    I’m a little worried all this will give me information overload – is it easy to contact other members and ask for help?

    • Peter

      Hello Chris Absolutely in fact if you choose to join, I am the first person you will hear from and you may even get a personal welcome from the founders also. We can PM each other at anytime. The community is unlike anything else you have experienced and you will quickly be able to build up your own following and contract within the community. Thanks for the question. 😉

  • Chris

    Very interesting stuff Peter – it’s nice to see someone actually covering the online opportunities that won’t run with your money for once!
    You mention a certain type of education within your content – is this the education you received?
    If so, how long did it take you before you had enough knowledge to set up this site?

    • Peter

      Hello Chris I struggled for years trying to learn how to make money online myself and failing miserably until I discovered Wealthy Affiliate and with few days had this site set up and after few weeks some pages of content and now 6 months over 50 pages and posts. So the education is awesome and I highly recommend it t anyone wanting to build an online business. Thanks for your comments :).

  • Loretta

    Peter, your honesty and ethical methodology in guiding others to success is commendable.

    I so loathe the hype and bovine excrement of unattainable promises when it comes to telling people how to make money online.

    Unfortunately, the information highway is cluttered with folks who are driving Pintos trying to sell everyone else Lambriginis. Should I really be telling someone how successful they can be making money online if I have not actually done it myself? Kinda helps to actually know what you are talking about to sell it, right?

    You, however, my friend, are someone to heed. You have done it and are doing it, so of course it makes sense that you can truthfully promote “this is the way to do it” and use yourself in example.

    Keep on “telling it like it is, Peter”—I’m listening and learning.

  • Gina Gonzalez

    Hi Peter, You speak the truth. There are no shortcuts to earning a living online. I know because I have tried them. I am a very grateful member of Wealthy Affiliate.

    In my opinion, if we want to have a successful online business, we really need to put a lot of hard work, dedication, perseverance and patience in order to be successful online, what do you think?

    Peter, whatever you are doing now, you must be doing right because I see that you have many pages of Google’s 1st page ranking!! well-done!! 🙂

Wealthy Affiliate can give anyone who wants to learn the tools to making a living online a reality. Thanks again for your feedback 🙂

  • Jennifer

    I’ve really enjoyed reading your article Peter! Very well laid out, with ton’s a fabulous straight forward information without the fluff. Wealthy Affiliate has helped me hugely other the past few months, and I am seeing results each and every day.
    I agree having the right education is the key to your success, but the most important “key” I believe is the “WHY” having the Reason WHY you want to achieve is very powerful without concentrating on the WHY you will lose interest in what you want to achieve in life. Here’s a great Quote that I really like and thought you would like Peter. 🙂

    “All That We Are Is The Results Of What We Have Thought.”
    ~ Buddha

    Fabulous job on your article, you offer tons of great information that will definitely help those who are looking to work from home.

    • Hello Jennifer Thank you for your feedback. That’s a great quote from Buddha BTW and yes having a big enough WHY is important. Always appreciate your comments 🙂

  • Nigel

    Great insight Peter. I don’t think many people understand the importance of an education in affiliate marketing. I certainly didn’t when I started out. WA is the industry leader in this area and have got me on the on the track to success.

    • Hello Nigel Thank you for your comments. Yes getting the right education is so very important yet people fail to realize exactly how important because they think of education like they remember at school “Boring” rather than $$$$ and Success. Appreciate your feedback 🙂

  • Katie

    Very informative article with solid information to help people get started, I agree having the right resources and tools to build a good online business is a must, Wealthy Affiliate provides such a platform

  • Hello Peter. It’s interesting that many online companies do NOT focus on education when you join them. They give you a free website (or you get one you have to pay for) and tell you to add content and promote it. You never learn the ins and outs of the proper way to begin your business, how to build up your site for search engine rankings nor do they stress that it is hard work and that you must remain determined and persistent if you want to success!

    You website is the perfect complement as an educational tool for anyone wanting to make sure that they are working their businesses correctly. You writing is very easy to follow and so are your examples. It is so nice to be able to demonstrate using actual screen shots of your progress so that your readers know that you are not just blowing smoke.

    Thank you for always putting out impeccable work……I see that you truly work hard. Speaking of working hard. If we were out trying to build a brick and mortar business, it would take about 5 years to see success and progress and talk about working hard..ay…not to mention how much money one must spend. Yet so many frown on the prospect of having to put in hard work for a free website and for virtually no money up front……….the price is education and time and the confidence that if you do the work………….it will pay off!

    Sorry I got on the soap box………

    All the best,

    • Hi Angela So happy you got on your soap box…ha ha Yes everything worthwhile takes work and unfortunately many people are fooled into thinking that the internet is somehow different. Probably due to all the B.S scammer stories… Thank you so much for your comments I appreciate you taking the time to write these comments. 🙂

  • John

    As always you have given the best information on Affiliate Marketing. You must act. Without this step you will just spin your wheels on the internet and be lost in the millions of other websites. The training on keywords and how to write an article are the most important part of how to earn money working at home. This does take some time and persistence as Tom states. Hard work and time is what makes any business profitable if done correctly.

    • Hi John. You are right, persistent action in the right direction (no matter how small) is a major driver towards success. Because knowledge without action is useless and action without knowledge is as frustrating as shooting in the dark at a moving target. If you are lucky you might hit something. The education from Wealthy Affiliate is like have a bright searchlight lighting up the dark corners of the internet allowing you to “see” what you need to do in order to be successful. Thank you for your comments 🙂

  • Hi Peter-This article gives great perspective and focus on education in the affiliate world. ” to know what to do and to replicate that success process” as you point out is the key, you are spot on, and I would add persistence as an integrative component of that. Well presented post!


    • Hey Tom Thank you for your comments and yes persistence is definitely an important factor that’s why it’s not an overnight process rather an ongoing process that continues to grow with you and piece by piece it all comes together like a snowball rolling down a hill of snow, getting bigger as time goes by. Thanks again for your comment 🙂

  • Hello Peter, I found your website so rich with precious information. This information can end a misery in peoples lives. Of course, if they do not mind consistently work towards their goals. Everything what is provided here, has great value choosing right direction creating business online. All the best, cheers, Nemira.

    • Hi Nemira. Thank you for you comments. Yes Wealthy Affiliates can truly make a difference in people’s lives and the education you receive can be very beneficial to anyone seriously wanting to make a living online. It’s not an overnight miracle but a miracle nonetheless. Thanks again appreciate your feedback 😉
