Today the latest trend in making money is Online, so how to make money online for beginners is a very pertinent question!

In this article I will explain the very basics of the online world for beginners. We all had to start at the beginning in this present online world, so there is nothing to be ashamed of, or to feel embarrassed about.

I will also share some of my personal experiences with MLM companies that gave me a hunger for doing things online instead of offline.

The Offline World of MLM – NEVER AGAIN!

When I first started looking for ways to make money online about twenty years ago in the year 2000, the big trend then was Multi Level Marketing, or MLM

My very first MLM that I became involved in was Amway. I am sure you have heard of it. It was quite a learning experience for me.

The person who invited me was a complete stranger. At that time I was working in a Mall at a Place called the Perfect Pretzel. Yes, I made Pretzels. He had seen me there a couple times, and saw me going to my car in the parking lot.


He asked me some questions if I would be interested in making extra income, and I said, sure, why not?

So that evening he picked me and my brother up at our apartment, and on we went to our very first Amway meeting.

I amazingly STILL remember the name of the presenter and his wife. Jim and Connie Agard. They had their huge bus converted into a mobile home parked right in front of the school auditorium that he had rented for the night.

I remember he had a big white easel and a black marker, and he kept drawing all these circles. I was interested and ended up joining, both me and my brother.

One of the first things they teach you in every MLM is to build a contact list of at least 100 names. Yea, you guessed it. We had to write down all of our family and every friend we could think of to go and bug them about Amway!


I am so glad I got out of Multi Level Marketing! What a terrible way to lose all your family and friends. They never want to answer the phone when they see your name on the caller I.D. LOL.person looking shocked at their phone

If you were ever in an MLM you know exactly what I am talking about! I mean, who enjoys bugging their friends and family about the latest and greatest way to make money program?

I sure did not enjoy it!

My very last stint with MLM was with a company called Melaleuca.

It was near the end of my experiences with Melaleuca that a strong desire to do things online developed within me.

I would keep asking people who were in my up line, how come we can not advertise our business online on a website we make and get referrals that way?

I learned later that it was against company policies to use the company name on any website except a certain website company that Melaleuca approved of.

I was frustrated.

Until last year when I came across the answer to my prayers! I found a company that would let me not only have my own website, but also show me how I could use that website to prospect TO THE WORLD!

That companies name is Wealthy Affiliate. It is a 15-Year-Old Affiliate Marketing Company designed for Beginners!
