My summary of the Wealthy Affiliate programme
If you have a passion or an interest and are willing to teach others about it then go ahead and read the rest of the review, or click <here> to join up.
Do I think this is suited for everyone – no. If you do not enjoy talking about a subject or enjoy being at a computer for hours, then this programme may not be for you, but it’s worth reading the review to see if you are interested.
What is Affiliate Marketing?
When I was looking to start to make money online I had no idea what to do or where to go. I had read that there are a lot of scams online – people willing to take your money for a get rich quick scheme.
I was after a legitimate opportunity to make money online.
I had looked at several other schemes and they had dropped into the ‘ get rich quick’ category. Out to take your money and give nothing useful back.
I then came across affiliate marketing and started to look into it. It appears to be everywhere – adverts down the side, links within the page – so what is it really?
Affiliate marketing is a system where you are a commissioned based sales person – don’t let that scare you away.
It is a system where you can take what you are interested in and make some money with it – how much money you say.
That all depends on how many people are interested in what you are writing about . It also depends on whether these people are willing to buy what you offer – so there is no easy answer to that question.
You start out with an idea of what you are interested in and create a webpage – don’t worry if you’ve never done this – then you write about it.
People are searching all the time in the search engines, such as Google, Bing , Yahoo. The search engines then present you with webpages relevant to your search – most of the time!!
what you are after is getting your information presented at the top of Google. This means that people are more likely to click to read your information than others.
once reading your information, you can try to persuade people to buy through your website. If they do this then you will get a commission from where you placed the advert.
It sounds complicated – some of it is but there is a very good system – ready to read about it?
What is Wealthy Affiliate?
The Wealthy Affiliate site was started in 2005 so it’s not a make money and run site. Over the years it has changed from the original keyword search site to a community of over 500,000 – the owner have all of these following them!! in 2016 and growing.
It was started by Kyle and Carson, while they were in college. they got together and started something they were passionate about. It’s now grown into what you can find <here> today.
The site now is more of a community rather than just training or just information, so members talk and help other members.
What Do You Get?
After signing up – no credit card required – no fee charged – so you get in FREE. You have access to some of the site, all of the members are friendly – it can be overwhelming if you are not used to Facebook or other sites like this.
You have access to the Activity Dashboard for reading questions and blogs of other members – some very interesting points are raised here. Starter members have the ability to comment on these for a 7 days.
There are 5 levels of training, within the Online Entrepreneur Certification (OEC) course, with 10 modules in each level and being updated all the time.
There is another major course, which is quite intense, called the bootcamp course. This is mainly about creating a site to promote Wealthy Affiliate, but you can use the training to add more to the other course if you are not promoting WA.
As a starter you have access to :
- The first level of training…both courses.
- Two classrooms
- Two free websites – you get to name them after your passion
- Access to industry experts and millionaires
- A strictly spam free environment
- And it’s completely FREE (already said this one!)
The training is excellent – it will take you from not knowing what affiliate marketing is to having a fully functional website with the ability to make you money. All you need to bring is passion and enthusiasm!!
Don’t be put off by the fact that you have to build a web site – on here you can build the bare bones within an minutes, Kyle claims 30 seconds – I haven’t timed him but its not far off!!
Once your website is there and you write some content – don’t worry its all in the training, people can access your site any time of the day. You can setup an email corresponding to your domain for people to respond to.
If you have a problem with the website there is technical support available, they are very quick to respond and sort out problems. You tend to try the search box first, then the community and if they cannot help then use technical support – the reason behind this is if anyone else has a similar problem you will be helping them as well or they will help you.
The training is by video classes, don’t forget to take notes. there are activities which complete the lessons and create your online business.
What are the disadvantages?
Time spent on the activity Dashboard and not working on your site.
Time spent in the live chat and not working on the site.
I have not come across anything I don’t like or is holding up my business development. There are no upsells (asking for money as soon as you get in). You may want to upgrade and get a special price for the first month within the first week. This may stop in the future.
It’s up to you to TAKE ACTION to create a better future for yourself.
