Get Started: Your First Steps To Success!

If you’re looking to make honest money online, using legitimate methods, rest assured you’ve come to the right place. Forget
everything you’ve been told, sold, convinced of when it comes to this business. I can guarantee you right now, 99.9% of it are pure lies. 

Let me introduce myself: My name is Vitaliy. I have been in the business of online marketing for over 8 years. I’ve been scammed more than once, have seen incredible success and know how this business works. Everything you find on this website is all about real ways of making honest money online, no scams, no gimmicks & no shady business.

I want to tell you right off the bat that there is NO get rich quick scheme when it comes to online marketing. This kind of stuff doesn’t happen and only scam companies use this illusion to get you to buy their products. However, you can make a lot of money in this industry if you have the right tools and guidance. And this is exactly what you’ll get here. 

So let’s get started!

The 1st thing: You need to understand how this business really works!

Before you go anywhere else, read this page first. Its a summary of how making money online works and the real ways to do it. It is honest, it is easy to understand and if you have ANY questions, feel free to leave a question/comment. I always reply within 24 hours 🙂

The 2nd thing: Get free training: free training

After reading about how the process of making money online works, take full advantage of the Free Training section, also located to the right of this website. Go through each area 1 by 1 starting from the top. Here’s a summary of each training section:

1. Wealthy Affiliate University. This is the only place I recommend where to learn to make honest money online. This is basically a school for internet marketing that teaches people how to build successful online businesses and/or websites. I have been with them for over 6 years and everything you find here on succeeding on online marketing I learned from them. They are free to join. Here’s all the details full inside look here.

2. How to build your own website for free! You will need to have your own website. But don’t worry about it if you’ve never made one. It’s really a piece of cake. I’m going to show you how to very easily and quickly (takes 1 minute) create a great looking page. Your website will be the foundation of your success! Here is the tutorial on how to make your own website fast & free.

3. How to start an online business for free. No joke, this is completely possible and this tutorial gives you the blueprint for making it happen. Here’s the blueprint.

4. How To Find Profitable Keywords! Keywords are anything people type into search engines to find things. It’s the job of an internet marketer to create a website which the visitor will see once they type a search into search engines. A lot of people tend to look for the same things online and those kinds of searches are called keywords! This tutorial will help you learn how to find profitable keywords for your website to drive visitors to it! Get the training here.

5. Free Keyword Tool Jaaxy: This is the easiest keyword tool I have ever used. I have found some crazy keywords which have helped me create websites which get 1000’s of visitors monthly (and still rising). Try it for yourself!

The 3rd Thing: Read case studies!

In my 8 years in this business, I have come across a lot of failures, but I have also had success stories and those success stories have earned me well over 6 figures yearly. In this section, I will provide you with REAL case studies of successful online marketing projects and how I made them work. One thing you don’t often see in places which teach you to make money online is proof that they know what they’re doing. So I have added that section here to give you that 🙂 See case studies. You too can have this success and even more. 

The last thing I recommend: Seeing what works & what to avoid)online scams to avoid

There are a TON of scams and very few legitimate products you can trust if you wish to make honest money online. I review these products and also ask you to report any scam here.

If you check out the lists (located above), you’ll notice there are a LARGE amount of bad companies out there. This is a number that will keep on rising. Be sure to check them out so that you may protect yourself from being scammed online.

Many scam companies use the same exact methods of marketing to attract you to them. If you want to learn how to avoid them, read this tutorial on the dirty methods these places use! 

And with that in mind, I’d like to thank you again for checking out this page. Read the recommended tutorials. I promise they will not only help shed light on the business of making honest money online, but you’ll also get all the correct tools and proper training to help you personally succeed in this business.

If you have any questions, you can post them here, or in the Ask a Question page. I always reply within 24 hours.

To your success!

  1. Wayne

    Good morning Vitaliy, (it is on the west coast of Canada). I first found WA almost a year ago in November, (I tend to procrastinate a bit, want to be done with that), and have looked at many of the reviews as well. I have also looked, (but not spent money), at other ways to make money on line as well. I have also tried the survey route and found that way to make a living much less than desirable. I’ve been rejected for 10 times more surveys than I have actually completed and have probably only made about $100 so far.

    I am Canadian and currently retired, (66), but looking for part time work. My wife and I have very minimal RRSP’s and, combining that with our Gov. Pensions, our retirement years look bleak at best.

    I have interests in different areas, (singing, drawing, making walking sticks, camping in our trailer, taking pictures), but no real passions. One of my issues is I don’t know how some of these could produce a profitable niche. I am also not in a position to do a “Premium” membership at this time. It’s not a huge amount of money but it’s just not in our budget at this time.

    My only other issue is fear of failure. I really want to join WA because I can see the benefits in doing so. I am a total newbie and will probably need a lot of assistance. I have no business experience and my computer skills are limited.

    As I said before, my big issue is fear of failure. I have explained this as best as I can to my wife but she is sceptical and not 100% on board. At present she would probably have to work for another 5 years before she can retire and I would really like to cut that to 2 if possible, or less. To do that I would have to have a business that would generate $3,000-$4,000 a month.

    I ramble on. Good thing there’s no limit on space for these comments.

    I would like to sign up through your web site because you seem honest and I think I could benefit from your mentorship and keeping me on track. So, ALL that being said, 1. Do you see any potential in these interests, and, 2. If I paid for the first month, ($19), would that disqualify me from taking advantage of the black Friday deal, (when it comes around), or would even having the free membership disqualify me??

    Man!! There’s almost enough here to write a book. Thanks for your patients in reading all this and I look forward to your answer.

    • Vitaliy

      Hi Wayne, thank you for sharing all of this information with me. I know it’s not easy to do. There are a lot of things I want to answer for you, but I’ll start with the 2 questions you asked me towards the end of your comment:

      1. I absolutely see potential in every niche you listed. Let me go over some that I felt had great opportunities.

      Drawing: If you are good at it, you can teach others do it too, make videos on how to draw with different types of art (pastels, crayons, ect…) and sell products from within the art world on your site or even possibly have people request that you draw them something and pay you online to do it.

      Walking sticks: This is a new one to me, but that doesn’t mean it can’t work. If you make great canes and walking sticks, you’ve got a great niche where you can with your audience how to make this (carpenter activities) and again have people request you make them custom walking sticks if you become a big enough authority at it.

      Camping in the trailers: This is a great one Wayne. I think if you shared your adventures, how to have a great trip in trailers, where to go, what to see and also share pictures from your trip, you can get a ton of people interested. I have always been interested in these types of adventures to spend with friends and family and believe me, there is an enormous niche sitting there waiting to be fed information on this topic. As for money, well, you have tons of options here: Selling trailers themselves (yes you can do this), accessories for camping, and so many more things.

      The niche profit is there, you just have to learn how to see it from that point of view and you’ll get that from Wealthy Affiliate.

      2. The Black Friday deal will probably be going on this year as it was last time. I believe the way it works is if you join for say a month, then take advantage of the deal, it will either subtract your current month’s membership, making the remaining 11 months cheaper than the usual $299 they charge OR the price will be used as a 12 month extension starting from the end of your $19 month.

      I am grateful that you want to join WA under me and I’d be very happy to welcome you into the community. Just do it through my website (right here) and that’s it. Before you go premium or take advantage of anything in the black friday offers, I want you to really go through all the starter courses first.

      I know a lot about the fear of failure, procrastination and we all have it. But I’m sure you can relate in that you know where that stuff gets us in life. Don’t think of this new journey you’re taking as being a everything or nothing at all where if you don’t succeed, it’s over. That’s putting way too much unnecessary pressure on yourself.

      Of course making the quota you set is going to take time and a lot of work, but I don’t see why you can’t do it. You have excellent writing abilities. Just have fun with this!

      • Wayne

        Thanks for your quick response. I’m don’t think I am too interested in trying to sell my own products. That takes more time that I think could be better used to build and promote a website. The RV Trailer idea appeals to me but we haven’t had any extended road trips yet so telling people about our adventures would be one thing, but with some research, maybe there could be a “where they can go and what they can do there” kind of site. And then there could be the safety and up-grade side of things.

        Could you check out how Paying for the first month might or might not be an issue for the “Black Friday” offer? If I could do that then I would have a longer look at the WA program and learn more.

        If you would rather e-mail me personally, feel free. And thanks again.

        • Vitaliy

          Hi Wayne, the black friday offer will not affect your membership. You’ll be fine. I would put all of these ideas you have on pause for now, but you’ll be able to create a better blueprint for it once you start the training inside WA.

          • Wayne

            Thanks again for your quick response. It’s refreshing to know that there are people out there who are interested in helping others. All the best to you and I WILL SEE YOU on the other side in a few days, (Monday).

  2. Melinda

    Hey Vitaliy! I don’t believe I’ve come in here since shortly after I joined. I just wanted to thank you and let others know that I love Wealthy Affiliate!
    When I first joined, I knew very little about building websites. The lessons are explained in detail and the few times that I was stumped, I either looked for the answers on the search bar that is provided at the top of each page, or if I couldn’t find my answer (which was very rare) I would go into Live Chat and somebody always either knew the answer, or could link me to the information.

    Vitaliy and the owners (Kyle and Carson) all said that they would help if I needed them, but the only time I’ve “used” (lol) them was when I was in chat and they just happened to be there. I love that everybody within WA is always happy to help with anything that anybody has problems or questions with.
    Thanks again!

    ~ Melinda

    just learning my way.. I just found this is another loop for a second layer of membership payment.. trying to figure my options now.. Vitality should disclose for the sake of clarity that once you become a member the main priority is to push you into the premium membership..there is no gain/advantage if you don’t do it.. this is what I call transparency from the very beginning..I rather prefer you let me know my options upfront! Why not???

    The site is good for learning, I truly recommend it but keep in mind the free options described above will not give you the power to really succeed online. Once you become a member you will learn the real financial path to get ahead online, which is OK (even helping the current members like Vitality to make money by attracting potential members) but we should have the right to get informed clearly from this page that is basically attracting referrals for Vitality..again my point is about proper disclosure of the program at this early stage..

    • Vitaliy

      I totally understand your point of view, believe me, but just know there is absolutely no misleading going on here. I do mention the premium membership in my review of WA and even when people join, but I do specifically state that it is optional. Joining WA through myself or on your own does not change the prices.

      One of the most asked questions is if the free membership is enough to make money, it actually is. But what the starter training does is gives you a big picture outlook on what you’re supposed to do to make success happen. Premium gets into the details and offers tremendous support 24-7.

      It is encouraged to go premium, that is true, but it is never pushed and there is never a “requirement” for this. Whenever people ask me if it’s required, I also tell them no and they should decide on their own. Starter is good enough to make money if you follow the training, but premium helps a lot too.

      Also on this particular page, I link to one tutorial I personally made about the whole process of money making. Check it out 🙂

  4. Joe

    Sir or madden

    To whom it may concern, have you a job were I can work online from home without putting cash in ?

  5. Kathy

    I have read a lot of the Q & A’s, but (as of right now,) I have not seen anything on paying taxes.
    So, how are income taxes and business taxes addressed while running an online business?

    • Vitaliy

      Well I’m not a tax professional, but the way I do it in my state (NY) is that I opened up a corporation and pay income taxes (federal, state and local) on all earnings online (minus expenses such as advertising). If you do not have a corporation, you will most likely have to fill out a 1099 form which is normally sent to you. I might do a post addressing this question.

  6. Chelvis

    Hey Vitalise,
    Please I really don’t understand what this business is about. You sound so honest and couple with people comments. I am very much interested in this business. I have a Bachelor degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering but I really want to go into business and I have the whole time in the world to put in this business as long as I will make it on the long run.
    Please I need your help and advice.

    • Vitaliy

      Hi Chelvis, this business is all about getting the right visitors to a website that you make and then selling to those visitors. Have you checked out this page? It will help explain everything. If you need more questions answered, let me know 🙂

    • Vitaliy

      Hi Jose, you can build any type of business you want. Literally anything, but the one I’d choose is based on a topic YOU personally like. This is what we call a niche. Go through the training I have set up here and if you want to go further, check out Wealthy Affiliate, the perfect place for helping you build a business.

  7. Thibaut

    Thank you for this website Vitaliy!
    As I was doing research online on ways to make money, I thought it would be great to have a website which identifies scams and provides useful information to get started. Your website is doing the job 🙂

  8. Jose Vazquez

    In regards to WA: Hi, I had an important question. I have a part time job and am currently attending college and I was wondering if I’ll have enough time to make a decent amount of money since I won’t be able to work at it full time.

    • Vitaliy

      Hey Jose, the answer is yes. Although everyone’s success in terms of time frame varies, if you can devote a few hours a week to working on this, it’s good enough to see results. Obviously the more time you initially invest into the business, the better it will be in the long run.

      I was actually a student myself when I got into this business. The truth is it’s not something that will take 24-7. You can actually work a few hours a week and get great results, but the initial steps and work is where most of the effort will need to come from. Then as the business builds and you earn money, you can work less and less.

      Hope this helps!

  9. Manuel

    Nice site! you’ve been working very hard on it. Great to know that you’ve been for over 8 years on this business, so you know what you’re talking about

  10. Roland

    Yes Vitaliy,

    I know exactly what you mean! I’ve been there and done that and I’m through being there and doing that! Sick and tired of gurus preying on the hopes and dreams of people looking to make a few extra bucks online. I appreciate that you’re letting folks know that there are legitimate options out there, WA being one of them! Looking forward to coming back to see what great advice you have to offer next time!


  11. Christina

    This is a great overview of starting an online business and how to get the tools and help you need. You obviously have a lot of experience with the ups and downs of this business, we could all learn a lot from your wealth of information. Thanks Vitaliy!

    • Vitaliy

      Thanks Christina! I’ve certainly been around the block more than once in this business and in my opinion based on extensive experience, this is one of the best ways to get started in this industry and ensure success.
