I have been working for “the man” for years and seeing them buying the new, fancy cars and taking trips whenever and wherever and watching as they took time off while I stayed behind to work and support them and their toys and getaways. Why couldn’t I do that? Why was I different? I have a full-time job so I needed to find online jobs to work from home.
I Thought to Myself
My thinking process was “if I can make $35,000 working for someone else or make $35,000 working for myself from home, which would I choose”. The answer was pretty simple. I looked for something else, something that I could do and I could afford that didn’t require a lot of investment. I found Wealthy Affiliate, I looked into it and it seemed to check off everything I was looking for.
When I found Wealthy Affiliate I joined right away.
And by right away, I’m really talking a couple of hours. I looked at other websites that had reviews, some didn’t like it but the ones that did give positive reviews mentioned the training, the helpful community and how much they were currently making a month as the big positives of Wealthy Affiliate. I signed up to check it out.
What Wealthy Affiliate Is
It is affiliate marketing. Affiliate marketing is where you get a commission or a fee for writing about products or services online. You are the affiliate and you market it and the company that makes or supplies the product pays you a fee – think Amazon, Walmart, Home Depot, etc. Each of these companies will pay you a percentage if whoever you send them makes a purchase.
The process usually goes like this:
- Build a website
- Write a review or article on something that you’re passionate or knowledgeable about.
- Add a link to your website about that product
- Reader clicks the link and makes a purchase
- You profit!
Most people who buy something on the internet don’t just go straight to Amazon and shell out $300 for a new TV. They research it and make sure it’s right for them. How do they do this? They go to a few different websites and read articles and reviews – just like what you would be doing – and guess what? Those review sites have affiliate links and are making an income off of it too. So why not you too?
There’s no prior experience required for helping people out, giving recommendations and reviews. You don’t need to be a webmaster or know coding or HTML, really they only thing you need to know is how to use a computer and be interested and passionate about whatever it is you’re going to write about.
It is not easy and it does take time. There is not a magic wand and poof! you’re bringing in $6,000 a month. But the potential is there to earn $6,000 a month down the road. You have to put the work in, no one will do it for you. You can make as much money as you want and if you put the effort in to it. Some are making over $7,000 a month. I’m not there yet, but I will be.
Doesn’t Cost a Thing to Sign Up.
It’s free to sign up – no credit card required – and that allows you 7 days to go through the first lesson and see what you think and get a feel for it. There is a live chat where you can ask questions you will probably get answers within minutes. After you sign up you get 2 websites for free and that’s when the fun and your new business starts!
The process of building your website takes about 30 seconds. Come up with a name, see if the domain is available, then choose your theme and boom! it gets created and you’re all set up and ready to begin your business and your future. And I have never built a website before and it was pretty easy with all of these tools and training they provided. And if it I couldn’t find it in the training, I could ask the community for help and I would always get an answer.
Wealthy Affiliate Makes it Easy to be Successful
After you join you have 7 days to decide if you want to learn to make money online and be a premium member, it costs $49 a month, less than $1 a day if you purchase it yearly. But during those seven days I’m convinced that you will see it is the best thing for you to do if you want to have your own online business.
Wealthy Affiliate has all the tools you need to succeed.
They provide site domain registration and it makes what is usually a time consuming process pretty simple. They have keyword assistance to help you find the right keywords to use to get higher rankings and better visibility on Google, Bing and Yahoo.
You can use their site content platform that has templates which helps you to create good website content which will bring more traffic to your website. You have access to the live weekly webinars – those have helped me tremendously to get better results.
And probably the biggest benefit of all is the step by step training with videos. This was something else that helped me a lot as well. There were many times where, even though I read the text, I couldn’t find where to go on my website to change the settings, but I watched the video and pointed it right out to me.
As you progress through the 50 lessons of training, start building websites and creating content, you might make mistakes on the way but the community and I will be there to help.
The Total Package
I don’t think there is any other online opportunity that allows you to work from home, provides all the training, domain hosting, community of support and potential of income as this one.
If you have any questions you can ask me, Derek, in the comments and I will get a notification or if the question is urgent, someone at Wealthy Affiliate is always ready to help a fellow WA member out.
