Hi Future Work From Anywhere Successful Person!
Thanks for reading my FREE Best Making Money Online Guide For Beginners!
Even if you’ve been doing this for some time you will learn something new in here and I hope that this guide answers the questions that brought you here.
I hope that this guide helps and motivates you enough that by the time you have reached the end of it you take action and start on your journey to escape from the 9 to 5 job!
For Those Action Takers!
Who Am I?
I’m Les Waller and I have been working towards financial freedom and have been trying to escape from the 9 to 5 cubicle since 2014.
It was back then that I discovered that people were making a full time income on YouTube, so I started a vlogging YouTube channel. It was quite an uphill learning curve to making YouTube videos and vlogging every day in an attempt to grow an audience.
After a couple of years, I knew I wasn’t going to make it as a vlogger. Even though, a couple of videos of mine have over 20,000 views I don’t have enough subscribers or viewtime to even be monetized anymore.
Therefore, after looking at other YouTubers that were making a full time income with their videos I saw that there were full time gamers out there, folks like Pewdiepie, Jacksepticeye, and Markiplier. Aha! I loved playing games and knew I could do what they were doing.
The Wallerdog Gaming channel was born! I took what I learned from vlogging and applied it to my gaming channel and had much quicker success. Within 3 months I earned 100 subscribes and within less than a year I earned 1,000. By the 2nd year I earned about 2500 subscribers but I was plateauing on my growth. That is not a good sign, matter of fact you should be exponentially growing by then if your growth is good. The problem was I was limiting myself to only a couple of games and the people who joined wanted to play with me and this was not going to scale well. However, I did earn about $1,300 in 2018.
Recently, I joined with another bigger gaming YouTuber and we’ve partnered and made a new gaming channel that will review new paid and free games and play together once a week. Needless to say we are both back at the beginning with this channel.
It was at this time that I also decided that I should look at other means for earning an income from home because I knew that even if we were successful with that channel it would take several years and there was no guarantee it would happen.
I needed something that was proven to work for anyone willing to put the time and effort into it. I’ve actually been an Amazon Associate for years but have never seriously done anything with it.
I also wanted something where I wasn’t reliant on that platform for success. I earned seen YouTube channels taken down by YouTube and so that was also a concern.
So, back in September 2018 I spent several hundred dollars to get a 20 something step process to build a niche website based on their performance of their websites. I thought this was exactly what I needed. It was a pretty good process that they have put together but you need to go out and put all the pieces together and I could see some people struggling with that. There also wasn’t much interaction with the team and the people who had bought into the group, although they do have a private forum built just for that. All in all, you weren’t getting much more than directions on how to build your website and how to find a niche and write articles for the website. For some that might be enough, but not me.
This brings us to mid-February where I decided to change the branding on all of my social media to reflect my desire to find a no bullshit way to earn money online. I decided I would emulate those who said they were successful at making money online and follow their methods. I also wanted to know what worked and what didn’t and share that with people.
Now, in mid-April, I have spent hundreds of dollars on different affiliate marketing programs and hundreds of hours researching them to find out the truth and to find the system that does it the right way!
Why Did I Create This Guide?
On March 25th, 2019, thanks to someone I know, I discovered the best no bullshit platform that had me up and running on a new website in less than an hour from creating my FREE account. In reality, it only took minutes to get the website up and the directions were so plain and clear I couldn’t believe it!
I was only a couple of hours into the FREE training that they provide and I decided then and there I wanted to upgrade to become a premium member!
I have learned so much in the past 2 weeks compared to the last 2 months of floundering around, it is unbelievable!
I know in my heart that this is exactly what I’ve been looking for and I wish I earned found it years ago when I first started to dabble with affiliate marketing. What a difference that could have made in my life!
I’m at an age now, 58, that it’s not all about me anymore. I get just as much pleasure from helping others out in this world as I do having my own success. It’s seeing others succeed because I helped you out by sharing my successes and what I have learned that brings true happiness into my life.
And that is what this guide is all about!
What you will see is how to build your own business online now that will pay you over and over in the future. That’s what passive income is really about, putting in the work in the beginning and seeing the fruits of your labor down the road in droves.
You will also be able to have me as your personal coach for FREE, I’ll talk about that more in a bit.
I will be able to answer your questions quickly and point you in the right direction and keep you from going down roads that I have already taken that only lead you to spending money, despair, and confusion.
Before I show you this training platform, I will show you how my business works.
The 21st century brings us such great possibilities that we didn’t have before!
What You Need To Know Before You Start That Online Business
This is NOT a Get Rich Quick Scheme, This Will Take Time & Effort to See Results
Thanks to Google’s emphasis on highly searched terms on the Internet, I’m sure you’ve seen the following types of titles: Earn $1000 Per Day, How I Made $25,000 in March, Make $200 A Day on Your Phone, and I could go on forever.
And, the worse thing is thousands of people will watch these videos and ads and BUY right into it. I hate to break it to you, but as I’m a no BS guy they are not going to work. Its just sensationalism to get your attention and it obviously has worked.
Been there, done that, wore out the T-shirt!
You will never hear me say that you can make money without putting in the time and effort beforehand. After all, Rome was not built in a day.
Having your own business gives you the opportunity to do what you love to do and because you love doing it you will work harder to succeed. Ask anyone who has started their own brick and mortar business and they will tell you the same thing. They are working more hours now than they ever did in their 9 to 5. But here’s the kicker, they are happy!
You want to be rich now? Then you better buy that winning lottery ticket!
What? Your chances of winning the lottery are slim to none?
Then it looks like we are starting to see eye to eye. You know that it is going to take your “free” time and hard work to build a successful online business and this could be what you have been searching for all this time.
I know you will love working this online business model, I do!
Keep reading because I will show you how to start it for FREE!
The Best Way to Make Money Online
How It Works
With the Internet not even the sky is the limit, but one of the best ways I’ve found to make money online from the comfort of your own home is by making a simple website about something that you love. Yes! You heard that right!
Let me give you an example. I know there are many cat lovers out there, aren’t there? But, lets talk about something more specific to cats like “train cat to use toilet” (cat training can be a niche).
So, you write about all sorts of cat training on your website; you write posts about cat training collars, cat training supplies, cat training tools, cat training biting, cat training mat, etc.
These in-depth articles on cat training will get your website ranked on Google, if you also make Videos on these same subjects they can also get ranked on Google and YouTube. But, I’m getting ahead of myself. Lets keep it simple.
Somebody is interested in one of these topics and types in “train cat to use toilet” because they heard it was possible to do that. They find your website article on Google and click on it.
They see by the many articles you have on cat training and cats that you look like a cat person, as well, and they will feel closer to you. They see that Litter Kwitter Toilet Training System and click on the link. Just like you did there!
This will take them to Amazon or some other business that offers that item for purchase online. If they buy that item then you will earn a commission at no extra cost to them!
This is affiliate marketing at it’s best and it is being used everywhere. It is big business and there are many very successful people like you using it.
So, What Is Affiliate Marketing?
Affiliate Marketing is simply promoting others’ products and earning a commission when people purchase those products.
Simple as that!
As a matter of fact, you would be surprised by the sheer number of companies that have an affiliate program. Not only big stores that sell many products, but also big businesses like Nordstrom, Avon, Apple, and Under Armour offer affiliate programs.
You promote their products by providing value on your website, people click the links, they make a purchase, and you earn a commission. Just like that!
No Need To Be a Used Car Salesman in Affiliate Marketing
Using this process, you don’t need to be on the parking lot waving your hands at everyone that comes by or that guy you see in the commercial telling you to come down to his auto place to buy a used car. You don’t need to be paying for ads that cost more than what you earn from the sale.
The Way to make this system work is to give people a solution to a problem that they have. You provide value to them first and then show them how Product A will help them solve Problem A.
I was on recruiting duty for the Marine Corps for three years and I saw how different people had different ways of selling the Marine Corps. I believed in the Marine Corps and did not sugar coat it, I told people the truth because I wanted to be able to look that Marine in the eyes when he came back from basic training and see how proud he was that he became a Marine. I was not the best recruiter, but I provided a solution for the young person that I believed in and even now, years later I am friends with some of those same people.
Bottom Line: in helping others to solve their problems, you will build a relationship with them and because of that they will trust your site and not hesitate to use your affiliate links to buy the products and services you recommend for them.
Why Does This Method Work?
Think about it, there are literally billions of searches every year by people looking for solutions to their problems. And, this isn’t a 9 to 5 thing, either. This is round the clock, every day, all day long from January through December. There is no down time for people searching on the internet.
You cannot tell me that there isn’t someone searching for “train cat to use toilet”, even as funny as that sounds!
And, if there is one person searching for that there is going to be others, as well.
You can be the one to help that person find the answer they need! Not only that you could be helping hundreds of people if not thousands of people with their cats.
Because you won’t just have one post on training a cat to use the toilet but you’ll have hundreds of articles on training cats.
Now Can You See the Possibilities Here?
One thing builds on the next; the more value you give to the people who visit your site, the higher you will rank on the search engines, the higher you rank on search engines the more people who will visit your site, the more people that visit your site the more money you will earn from commissions.
That is what you truly call passive income! Once you have written the article, it will always be there to answer peoples’ questions on that topic. It will be there tomorrow, next month, and next year.
And, you are doing this without paying for any ads! You are not out there trying to sell something to complete strangers.
That is why something as simple as building a website is so valuable; people are coming to YOU!
Without a website, you’ll be doing exactly the same thing I was doing for the past 2 months. Something called the “shiny object syndrome;” you’ll be chasing the next guru telling you how to make money fast and how to make money the easy way. If those aren’t scams, then they are just plain bad business.
In the end, you are going to have to get your own website and I will show you how to get yours for FREE, too!
Sounds Great! But, I’m Not Good At Technical Stuff!
I know you may not know anything about how to build a website, how to write an article that helps solve a problem or how to get your article ranked on Google’s 1st page.
If you understand the concept of how helping others find the solution to their problem and that in turn generates the sale of a product and you earn a commission from it, then you are right where you need to be at this moment.
You can learn the rest just like I have and I will show you how to get started on this path for FREE!
You Don’t Need To Be A Programmer
I started playing with computers when Radio Shack and Tandy was a thing, you know back when the dinosaurs roamed the earth. I’ve used HTML to build a simple website because that was the thing to do.
However, I’m all about the KISS (Keep It Simple Silly) method of doing things! Now, with only a few clicks of your mouse you can have a website up and live on the internet in less than a minute! Yes, You!
You don’t believe me, do you? 🙂
Keep reading and I will show you!!!
I wish I earned this available to me when I was much younger, I can’t even imagine where I would be now!
I have seen people with little to no knowledge build a website and become successful working from home!
Lets Relook At The 4 Steps To Make Money Online
1) Choose Something You Are Passionate About
This will be the niche we were talking about earlier, for example “How To Train Cats.”
It is very important here that this is something that really peaks your interest. Do NOT look at it from the “How can I make the most money?” approach.
If you choose the money approach, I can almost guarantee you that when the going gets tough and you aren’t earning what you thought you should be earning 6 months down the road, you will want to quit.
However, if it is something that you are passionate about it won’t be like working because it is something you enjoy researching and writing about and you love to help others who are interested in whatever the topic is. There are as many topics as there are websites out there.
You can do this because everyone is unique and you will bring your own personal touch to it and that cannot be duplicated.
2) Build A Website
You might be thinking, “oh, I can’t do this… I don’t have any experience with this stuff.”
As surely as you were able to click on a link to get to this free guide you will be able to point and click and build a website.
You’ll have your website up before you know it and be wondering why you even hesitated.
Once you’ve done that you will see how everything will fall into place one step at a time.
3) Bring In Organic Traffic
Your website is up and running and you have added some articles to help people with them pesky cats (just kidding about the cats, I’m a cat lover at heart).
People are starting to come to your website to solve their problems using the solutions that you have provided.
Just like you learned how to build you website and how to write your articles, you will also learn how to get All the FREE TRAFFIC to your website. Of course, you can pay for ads, but why would you when you can get people to come to your site for free???
Your site will start ranking on the search engines and, as a result, people will start clicking your links leading them to your website.
4) Make Money From Commissions
You recommend products from the big companies that have affiliate programs; Amazon, Walmart, Target, Apple, and others.
When people click through the links that you have put up and make a purchase, the company gives you a percentage of the sale as a commission for helping them gain a paying customer.
People will naturally take a look at what you have recommended on your website to see more about those products.
Once they’ve made their purchase, you have made money!
Are You Sure I Can Do This?
If you have read this and followed me this far then I know you will be able to build an online business. I know this because where we are going will lead you one step at a time and teach you what you need to know to make it happen.
There are no qualifications for being successful, other than following the training and doing the tasks one at a time from start to finish.
The training will be your guide on how to make money from home or anywhere with an Internet connection. You will find everything you need, tools and training that will make it easy enough for anyone to be able to do.
There are people from all over the world, of all ages young and old (did I tell you I’m 57), with varying levels of experience to include none that are now doing this as their full time way to make a living.
Let me show you ordinary people getting the job done and being rewarded for it!
And another example!
Here is someone showing us their 1st $1,000.00 month!

As an example, I’ve had experience and already had a website and social media accounts so I was posting my articles to these platforms, as well. Well, I got a referral from that and autoresponders weren’t covered yet in my training so I earned to jump ahead and do the lesson ahead of time.
