How I’m making money online.

African Success BlogDWT Screenshot

  I’m making money online through these two websites
and a few others that I have in different niches.

  On the left is the African Success Blog where I        provide information to young Africans and people of  African descent who are looking for college  scholarships and/or other resources on becoming  successful.

The other site the one you’re on right now, where I’m sharing the lessons I’m learning on the path to becoming a millionaire.  As I continue to provide valuable information on these two sites, I get to build a meaningful relationships with my readers.  This relationship built on trust will allow my readers to buy the  product products and services I recommend.

When my readers buy these products or services, I make a commission. The commission I make does not cause any increase in the price of the product. In many instances, because my readers buy through my affiliate links, they get special discounts.

This is the quickest way to start making money online. It does not require you to have any product of your own. All you need to have is the right Education, Website & Tools, and a support system that will ensure that you’re successful. And that’s why I’m proud to recommend Wealthy Affiliate University as the place to learn how to build a success business online.

So if you’re ready to start your own internet business, you have two things you can do right now. You can click here to create your free starter account at Wealthy Affiliates University, or you can read the rest of my review. Either way, I want you to promise yourself that you will do what you know is best: Get the right system that ensure success rather than falling for those “get rich tonight” scams.

    • business branding

      Hi there! I realize this is sort of off-topic but
      I had to ask. Does building a well-established blog like yours take a massive amount work?
      I’m brand new to operating a blog however I do write
      in my diary everyday. I’d like to start a blog so I can easily
      share my own experience and thoughts online. Please let me know if you have any kind
      of recommendations or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers.
      Appreciate it!

      • Dan Maxwell Jr

        Hello Jestine,

        Building a blog like this takes dedication. The amount of work you put in will determine the results you get. On average, I spend about 3 hours day between learning and building my business. . And if you sign up though this link I’ve provided, I’ll know, and personally coach you through the process.

    • Jim

      Hi Dan,

      WA has a good training program. I am a former WA member but decided to go in another direction with a different referral company that offers an opportunity much different than WA. Thousands of people are promoting the WA opportunity, kind of overkill at this point. If your interested in taking a different approach and create another income stream send me an email. Good luck!

      • Dan Maxwell Jr

        Hey Jim,

        thanks for your input. I’m glad you see the value in WA training. my primary reason for promoting WA is not because of the affiliate commissions; but because it’s the best newbie friendly training I’ve seen so far. I’m definitely open to learning about what else is out there. Will send you an email



    • Annette

      Hello Dan,
      I googled WA, for reviews and to find out if some sort of scam. What I have found are tons of pages like your own, having links to WA, to sign up.
      Is this part of what we will be doing in this course?
      And, of course, everyone wants you to sign up through their page. Is this part of the scam?

      • Dan Maxwell Jr

        Hello Annette,

        Thanks for stopping by and putting your question through. Promoting Wealthy Affiliate is completely a personal choice. What you learn in the training is how to build an honest online business using blogging is the base. When you sign up for the free getting started training, here’s what you learn:

        – Understanding the Process of Making money online (There are at least 7 different ways to make money online)
        – How to Choose a niche for your business
        – How to build your website
        – How to setup your website for success
        – What you need to do to build an SEO Friendly site
        – Where and how to find content Ideas for your keywords and business in general
        – and so much more

        Wealthy Affiliate does offer a commission for referring new students; but you do not have to take advantage of it. All of those who you see promoting WA are people who see the value in the training.

        Yes, I am Promoting WA, and would love it if you signed up through my link; but that is not as important to me as people like you who are looking for legitmate ways to make money online getting the right training and avoiding scam. So whether or not you try WA through me, all I advice is you do get a fee for yourself.

        There’s nothing to loose as your free starter account does not require any credit card or payment information. And you even get a full 7 days to try out the premium membership absolutely free without the need for any payment detail. And if you decide to signup though me, I will be there to provide further one on one support. Here’s a direct link to my profile on WA. http://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/danmaxwelljr

        Wealthy Affiliate is definitely not scam.

        Whatever you decide, I wish you the best in manifesting wealth, abundance and prosperity in your personal life and business.



        P.S. Here’s a post I wrote on my WA blog showing how I made $4,000 in my first 8 months of being a WA student
