There are a few thousands of blogs being published within a minute. There are more than three billion internet users at the time of writing. The internet is not just known for the speed of information, but also for the speed at which it can earn you a lucrative income.

I have reviewed a lot of online opportunities where you can make some money such as survey panels, high yield investment scheme (not recommended) and affiliate marketing. However, there is only one I consider the best way to make money long term – affiliate marketing.

I believe some of you have found some useful products that potentially can earn you some good money. Perhaps, most of you end up jumping from one product to the next, looking for the “secret” of why everyone else is making money but you.

In this post, I am going give you an honest recommendation and a legitimate way to make money online that could actually provide you with income for many years in the future.

I do not believe in easy money and there are no magical tips in this article that will help you get rich overnight. So if you are after easy money then this article is not for you.

Affiliate Niche Websites

Building small websites on specific topics then growing them to “authority sites” is by far my preferred way to make a fortune online.

Historically proven that it is not only my preference but many other successful bloggers on the market. Making money via affiliate marketing has been the most shared topic on the internet. However, not all of them are legitimate and real.

The method I’m gonna share requires a bit of basic skills of monitoring traffic, English writing skills and a bit of patience too.

It is also noted that you can generate $1,000 a day or $10 per day with the method I share. If you work smart, then you’ll profit for sure. So read it carefully.

Step 1 – Own a Blog and Write

First of all, you’ll need a blog. Many of us have our own blogs. If you have not gotten one for your own. You can build one for free using SiteRubix and write unique articles to generate traffic.

If you already have it. You need a little 100 daily visitors to your blog. Reaching 100 visitors daily isn’t much hard for any of you.

For those who has no experience in blogging, you need to choose a topic you’re interested in. Something that can be your hobby or you are passionate about. Be sure to get something that you can write about…a lot. For example

  • Virtual reality (the hottest tech trend at the time of writing)
  • computer gaming headsets
  • herb gardens
  • DIY home remedies
  • paleo diet
  • backpacking and traveling
  • educational smartphone applications
  • ….and so many more!

Some people have extra budgets as a start up. They pay people to write as they have difficulty to find time. As for me, I started with spending two to three hours per day to write. As the website gains authority, I spend one hour per day publishing three posts per week.

Step 2 – Publishing Your New Posts

I installed a WordPress plugin called WP Editorial Calender.  This plugin allows you to schedule your blog posts in the calendar and publish them at those set times.

By doing this we can see which posts will go live and when these posts. I use this because reader engagement is important. Once your readers know your publish frequency, they will come back again and again. If there is an interesting post, they share on social media. That’s how you get traffic to your blog.

Step 3 – Monetization Your Blog

At the beginning when I started my site, I knew that one thing that stressed me out and took up time was monetizing the site. I always thought I need to own a product before advertising them on my site. I thought I needed to find an advertiser. In fact, affiliate marketing doesn’t require you to produce your own product.

Your blog site shall be used as an advertising platform for many affiliate marketing programs out there on the market. For example, Amazon, ShareASale, Apple and much more.

When you join an affiliate program and choose the products that you want to sell, sellers provide you with a unique affiliate code that you can use to refer traffic to the target site. Most affiliate programs will offer ready-made text links, banners and other forms of creative copies whereby you only have to copy the code and place it on your website to start referring traffic.

When interested visitors click on these links from your site they get redirected to the product site and if they purchase a product or subscribe to a service you as the referrer make a commission.

I do promote a product – Wealthy Affiliate. It is an affiliate marketing training program where it teaches me how to make a lucrative income online. Every month, WA sends me a nice sum of money that allows me to quit my 9-to-5 job.

You could argue that an affiliate product could out perform an advertiser, this is true. But often, it’s not. Who knows? Who cares? It’s more important to me to diversify my income so I’m not reliant on one income stream.

You can only promote an affiliate product so many times before it becomes irrelevant for a lot of readers. A great way to make adverts more relevant to readers and more successful for advertisers is by rotating 2 adverts with 2 different landing pages. This way your advertiser gets a much higher click through rate.


There are a few things you have to be mentally prepared when you make money online. When you are building your website, it’s very easy to get stuck in the JOB mentality of “when I do work, I want to get paid”. It can be discouraging to work 6 hours on an article, then not see money coming in. After a few weeks or months of it not making money, it feels even worse, like you wasted your time.

A few affiliate marketers who followed my email course came back and dropped me the same feedback saying that their blogs are not working and not making any money. I’m no stranger to those feelings. I had the same experience when I first started.

But when you are working online building niche websites that rely on organic traffic from search engines there is a delay between when you complete the work and when you see results.

I worked alongside with a person who actually stopped working on his website for a while, and was surprised to come back later to discover some Amazon earnings! It is normal. I have heard about this many times.

That is why sometimes it’s OK to take a break from your website when you get frustrated and spend some time working on other projects.

Your work doesn’t disappear. It stews in Google, and if you did good work, it settles down in a nice ranking where it can get traffic. Do that 100 times, and now you have 100 little traffic points settling down in Google over a period of time that will accumulate more and more traffic.

To make a fortune via affiliate marketing, you need to change your mindset and remember you are running a real online business. A brand new restaurant needs some time to gain its customers’ trust too.

    Totally agree with this, Alex. Blogging is definitely tough work and can be discouraging without results. Thanks for the encouragement.

    Hi Alex, I enjoyed reading your article but I have to ask when does the making money online on autopilot mode begin? It sounds like a lot of work to me. Building a website, constantly writing new content and joining affiliate programs does not sound like autopilot to me especially for someone just starting out and not really knowing what they are doing.

    I do really like your recommendation for WP Editorial Calender. I am excited to check that out!

      Hi Suzette,

      I do agree with you that the definition of “autopilot” differs from one to another person.

      As I first started, I spent almost 5 – 6 hours per day after work to make it worked. As my site matures, I spend 1 to 2 hours every day writing, optimizing my site, connect to social media and reply readers’ emails. This is when I consider it on autopilot mode.

      One has to bear in mind that creating great content is not enough to make a sustainable income online today. We do not simply write and publish and expect the money to come in automatically. The era is gone. You will have to make use of social media platform to promote your content and drive traffic to purchase items via your product reviews. It requires some hours of work every now and then.

      The best thing is as your site matures, the earning potential does not stop there. The revenue growth is still climbing up every single day (provided you publish articles regularly).

      I understand it can be difficult and overwhelm for a newbie to learn all this at the beginning. I knew nothing when I started mine too. My suggestion is to become a member of a legitimate training platform where you can access to all the knowledge you need to build your online business.

      Let me know if I could help. Just drop me a comment.

    Wow this is very nice and important information you are mentioned on your blog. I need this earn money by autopilot and I got it from your blog. I’m visited on your blog on daily basis and find any new information is there. Also I applied lots of SEO and affiliate sets on my blog and cross the finger how much money I’m earning from my blog. I’ll update you about my blog earning. Once again thanks for sharing this information on your blog. looking forward for Backlinks building information in details. Thanks once again.

    • Alex Y says:

      Hi Sameer!
      Thank you for dropping by and I am happy to learn that you have been checking out my site. I really hope you did learn something new every day though I am trying to publish new content once every two days. There have been a lot of private requests for product reviews. I am catching up. I need to find more time to contribute more articles.

      If you are new to the world of blogging, you have to be patience and keep working on your site. Although you have implemented all the SEO techniques, it takes time to get your site seasoned. Do not worry much as long as you are moving forward. Google will fall in love with your site sooner or later. Most importantly, you have to get your content published and being seen by your audience. One of the tactics is to share your post on social media (e.g. Facebook or Tweeter) or Reddit. Other than that, you should also try to get backlinks from high authority sites.

      Let me know if I could help in the near future.

      I wish you all the best!

    People need to know this stuff and you put it together in a clean, simple to understand fashion. It isn’t becoming rich overnight, but actually creating something, nurturing it, and watching it grow. It’s not even about becoming rich, but actually doing something you truly love and making a comfortable living from it. Thanks for the motivation Alex!

    • Alex Y says:

      Hi Michael. Thanks for your compliment. It is true that many people thought there is always a fast-money scheme that works. There is no free lunch no matter what you do. Online business is the same, there are way too many scams out there and none of them work. The most reliable way to make money online is through affiliate marketing, at least you get to choose the niche that you like to do and earn money from it.
