Live Case Series: 01 Introduction and Starting Off!
First Live Case Study about Making Money Online!
This is my first live case study about making money online. People may confuse about how to start and where to start. There are many scams online that make you lose so much money. With my live case study, you can learn how to build up a successful online business. I have no idea how much will be earning after starting this for months and years. Some people do the same thing like me may earn over $10,000 per month after one to two years launching their business. So you may do better than me too.
My method to make money online is building a website. Building website is in my opinion the most legitimate way to make money online. You are not spamming and doing illegal stuffs to make money online. In fact, you are providing useful tips, reviews and tutorials for people.
I will do it at the very beginning and you are being able to follow step by step to build your entire business online. Let’s get started.
Record the Time!
First, I am recording the time here to let everyone know when did I start doing things on my website. Everything about tools, platform and the website will be all included here.
Now, record the date of your business starting time (hopefully today).
I have joined Wealthy Affiliate before but I have not done anything about my new website before. If you have not join Wealthy Affiliate yet, I strongly recommend you to JOIN FOR FREE NOW. If you don’t know what is Wealthy Affiliate, you can See My Personal Review on Wealthy Affiliate here.
I have registered a domain name from Wealthy Affiliate on 13-5-2016. But I have done some research before registering it. Don’t worry. I will teach you step by step how to do research on keywords and domain name.
What Do You Need to Do?
Here’s a list of what you should do. The list below has quite plenty of jobs waiting for you. I suggest you to finish these within one week.
I have done these on 14-5-2016. So you can track my results properly. I have nothing to hide and I am teaching you all about what you should do to build a successful online business.
To build a successful website to make money online, the most important thing is patience. You have to be patient while building a website. This is because Google and the other search engine will not give you any credit at first. You have to keep adding content and optimizing your website through a year or two. After about two years, your website will be making a monthly income that can cover your daily 9-to-5 job. I could not say I can guarantee that by using my method, you can make over $10,000 per month within two year. But I can guarantee that you WILL MAKE MONEY if you keep working and not giving up your business.
So the only thing you have to do is start your business now and promise yourself not giving up.

How to Do Keyword Research for my Domain?
Before starting to do keyword research, please ask yourself “What kind of website do I want?”. Do you want to build a website that has a brand? Or do you want to create a website that is Search Engine Friendly? Although it doesn’t matter after building your website for one year, it affects your exposure rate of your website.
A Keyword Based Domain
It is similar to this website BuildingSuccessfulOnlineBusiness.com. You are doing research that with low competition keyword. Usually we research for a long-tail keyword because it can include few combination within one keyword. For example, my domain name ranks in few different keywords (i.e. Building Online Business, Building Successful Business, etc.). This is good for your website’s exposure at first. But this doesn’t matter after a long period as your website probably will rank in hundreds of thousands of keywords.
A Brand Name as your Domain Name
A brand name is a really good choice for a domain name. But a big big concern of a brand domain is that your brand MUST be meaningful and make sense. You have to be very confident about building your business kingdom if you choose to use a brand domain instead of keyword based domain name. Just imagine that your website name is Twitter and you are promoting football shoes. Will there be anyone able to imagine or link the brand and your content? This is really dangerous as people may easily forget your website if you are not a big commercial brand. But this is really good to build up a professional image and reputation.
Besides, if your brand domain name is similar to some company, you will be encountered by legal issues.
As a brand domain may not require keyword research (simply just think a name…), we are going to stick with the keyword based domain name. So let’s get started into the research.
First, login to Wealthy Affiliate and head to the Keyword Tool.
You have made it to your first step!
Here is the MOST IMPORTANT PART throughout your online business journey. Please be careful.
You HAVE TO choose one of your most favorite interest to be your niche. I am personally a gym lover. I love bodybuilding so I can do some research on keeping fit, bodybuilding and fat loss diet.
So I head to research for “build muscle” and I turn out finding a really high competition keyword. The higher the QSR (Quoted Search Result), the higher the competition. We are finding a keyword with at most 150 QSR.
This is really normal for us. In fact, we should find a keyword with high traffic and high competition as our keyword root. So I head to Google and use a technique called Alphabet Soup. It is a brute force technique to search for relative long tail keyword. To apply this method, head to Google and add from A to Z after your root keyword. Then I found some nice keyword about that.
And I have found a keyword “How to build muscle for fat guys”. This is a good keyword to be our domain as Google may also rank this keyword for Build Muscle, How to build muscle and How to build muscle for fat guys.
So let’s check out whether this domain is available!
Head to Wealthy Affiliate’s Site Domain and enter your keyword.
The keyword is AVAILABLE! Hurray! You can directly register the domain at Wealthy Affiliate or you can register it from Namecheap, GoDaddy, etc. I personally registered few domains from Wealthy Affiliate and I feel really good with it because Wealthy Affiliate does provide enough protection and support for my domain.
Now, you are ready to build your WEBSITE!
