I remember how excited I was to earn my very first dollar online.
This was a defining moment in my journey to becoming a "super affiliate" and one I will always hold dear.
It wasn't much ($1.17 lol) and it took me 3 months to earn it, but seeing that commission from Amazon was enough to strengthen my resolve that what I had my hands on was real, and that I really could do this.
Which brings me to why I created this bonus for you..
I know first hand how powerful it is to earn that first dollar online, so I created this bonus to help YOU experience this game changing moment.
Except instead of working away for 3 months just to make a single dollar, like I did, I'm going to show you how you can generate your first $50 online, in less than 24 hours from right now.
Not only can this potentially cover the cost of your Premium membership, but it could put $100's or more into your bank account each month.
Think of this as a simple way to "earn while you learn".
It's definitely not, and shouldn't be, your main focus. Your main focus should be building out your site and creating affiliate income. But this is an awesome 'side hustle' to help you along your journey to becoming a successful online business owner.
Sound good? Okay, let's dive right in!
The Method: Providing Comments For "Cash Credits" and Redeeming These for USD
The method I'm going to be showing you here is all about providing comments on other Wealth Affiliate member sites, in order to earn 'cash credits'. From here, I'm going to show you how to redeem these cash credits for tangible US dollars.
And the platform we are going to be using to make this happen, is SiteComments.
This is a platform that exists within Wealthy Affiliate that serves the following purposes:
1) You can request comments on your site (this is a good way to potentially boost your Google rankings and increase conversions)
2) You can provide comments to other members sites (in order to earn credits, which can be redeemed for actual US dollars, getting comments on your site or buying a domain)
In this tutorial, I'm going to be focussing on the latter, using SiteComments to earn cash credits, and redeeming these for actual US dollars within WA.
Let's get started with the first step...
Before you proceed: This method absolutely works, but I cannot promise how much money you will make, or even if you will make any money at all. Your results will vary according to variables such as available comment opportunities, the quality of your comments and the effort you put in, among others. In other words, this works but there are no guarantees.
Step 1) Set Yourself Up With SiteComments
The first thing you need to do is get yourself setup with SiteComments. To learn how to do this, go to the following page and take the SiteComments platform tour:
This will get you acquainted with how the SiteComments platform works and what you need to do in order to get yourself rolling.
The next thing you need to do is create a free Gravatar account. To do this, visit the Gravatar site I just linked to, create your free account, and upload an image of yourself, or an appropriate profile image of some kind.
This is an important step in the process, because you need a Gravatar account in order to give comments. So get this done right away.
Once you have a Gravatar account setup, you will need to connect it to WA on this page.
That's all you need to do to get this setup. The following video will provide you with a much more in-depth guide on getting yourself setup to use the SiteComments platform, and provide you with more information.
At this point, you should be acquainted with the basics of SiteComments and have a Gravatar account setup and connected to SiteComments.
Get this done and move onto the next step...
Step 2) Get Yourself Qualified To Earn With SiteComments
This step is all about getting yourself qualified to earn. WA has a very strong focus on QUALITY so they want to ensure that folks who are providing comments, are providing quality comments, especially before paying you to provide these.
So this step is all about putting the groundwork in place to start earning.
To qualify to earn with SiteComments, you need to meet the following criteria:
- Minimum of 50 comments offered
- Minimum of 80% approval rate
- Maximum of 20% skip (not interested) rate
This is actually very easy to achieve if you are giving thoughtful, quality comments. Focus on giving people awesome comments, and you will reap the rewards. Give people dud comments, and you probably won't make a dime.
The good news it's easy to provide good comments. Simply read the article you are asked to give a comment on, and comment accordingly.
So to sum it up... this step is all about getting your first 50 comments in. It normally takes a few minutes or so per comment, depending on how efficient you are with providing comments. So providing 50 comments should take you 2-3 hours MAX.
Step 3) Start Earning!
Once you are qualified, it's time to start earning!
The amount each comment earns you is 1 'cash credit' which equates to $0.50 each. So two comments will earn you $1. That's a pretty sweet deal considering how easy this is.
Now let's do the math on reaching your first 50 bucks...
To earn $50, you would need to provide 100 comments, and if you provide 20 comments per hour (which is easy), that's about 5 hours worth of work.
Some people may take longer, some may get it done sooner. Either way, always keep your focus on QUALITY above all else, to ensure you have a long and fruitful experience with SiteComments.
Obviously this is not about making big money, but this can be your ticket to earning your very first $50 online, which is going to massively boost your resolve to build your business, and give you some extra money while you're learning. Exciting stuff!
Step 4) Cashing Out Your Credits
Cashing out your credits is simple.
First of all, go to this page when you're ready to cash out:
Second, move the slider to the right to reflect how many credits you wanna cash out and then hit "exchange for $ __" (whatever the dollar amount is on your screen).
Third, go to this page:
... and scroll down to the bottom where it says "Payment Settings". This is where you want to input your PayPal email address (the email you use to log into PayPal) and set the 'minimum payout threshold' to $10.
Payments are made at the beginning of every month so you will be paid your earnings at the start of the following month, like clockwork.
It is literally possible to earn $100's or more per month doing this. Obviously my goal is to help you earn a lot more than this. As I said earlier, this is just a simple way to get you to the point of earning your very first 50 bucks online. But this is a cool side gig.
