How Many Times Have You Been Sold a Scam?
Maybe you’ve been extremely lucky and have never actually bought into the idea that you could be out shopping for helicopters next weekend, if you pay $xxx for this amazing, fool proof strategy to make money online – P.S. You’ll learn exactly what it is once you’ve paid 😉
Well I haven’t been that lucky. I’ve been sold a few times. Mainly when I’m feeling a little more desperate for money, or when I’m very aware that I am not close to where I thought I’d be by the time I turned 30 and I only have 3 years left! I’m sure whole lot of you can relate to that!
Everywhere I turn these days people are telling me they can make me rich online, in less than a month! Blah Blah Blah! You’ll see “kids” showing cheques worth hundreds of thousands, with 6 supercars on the driveway of their $20m mansion!
These kids might be that rich, they might have even earned all that money online – who knows? One thing I do know – There are more “make money online” scams out there these days than there are gullible people (like me) to fall for them!
I have found one group of people who actually do what they say they will do though! It’s not a get rich quick scheme. There’s no promise of becoming a millionaire (although I imagine it’s quite possible) – But the best part about it is that it costs absolutely nothing to join. It’s Free! You can sign up, sample the goods (for as long as you like) benefit from the tools and the community – even chat with the owners, Kyle and Carson, as much as you like and it won’t cost you a thing. Im talking about Wealthy Affiliate.
So What Is Wealthy Affiliate About?
Wealthy Affiliate is not just a money making scheme. It’s a community. A group of thousands of people who genuinely want to help. Upon registering i began receiving messages from existing members, welcoming me to the Wealthy Affiliate community and offering any help that they could give.
What’s amazing, is that these people are all entrepreneurs. Now, if you’re anything like me, you’ll have spent a lot of time around people who don’t believe you can become super successful. I know that most of the people I know, don’t even think about getting rich or improving their lives to the extent that I talk about. I even get laughed at for my ambition by some. Not at Wealthy Affiliate.
There is amazing power in being around a group of people who are all trying to improve their situation. At WA ambition is not ridiculed, but congratulated and encouraged. Success is something that is necessary to all, not something out of reach for most. Speaking about money is important and welcomed, not frowned upon and rude (like your parents taught you).
What Is Affiliate Marketing?
You may have guessed form the name, but affiliate marketing is the focus at WA.
If you don’t know what affiliate marketing is, here’s a brief rundown… If you want a more comprehensive understanding, why not take a look at my full review of WA.
The general idea around affiliate marketing is a simple one. You choose a subject, create a website, and promote other peoples products, earning commissions for each sale you generate.
There are many affiliate programs out there:
You could promote products from Amazon
From supplement stores
And so on…
I don’t want to go too much into the theory of affiliate marketing here, so take a look at WA for more information.
What If I Don’t Have A Website? What If I Don’t Know How To Make A Website?
This is one of the areas that Wealthy Affiliate shines for me. I own a gas central heating installation company and have been paying £300.00 per month for somebody else to host and maintain my website. I recently cancelled him and signed up to a website building site, which only costs me £40.00 per month.. Bargain… right?
I was paying £40.00 per month for the pleasure of trying to figure out, with no training or prior knowledge, how to build a website that not only looks good, but is optimised for search engines, converts leads into sales and doesn’t have a high bounce rate… EASY STUFF apparently.
Wealthy Affiliate not only let you build and host your site free of charge… they also teach you how to do it. You’ll be using one of the most popular site building platforms in the world. You’ll be trained by experts, people who are running multiple sites, which they built from scratch and are earning money from regularly.
Here’s a quick video on how you can build a website in 30 seconds
This alone is worth the $0 investment, wouldn’t you agree?
I Know Nothing About Affiliate Marketing!
They’ll teach you that too. They taught me for goodness sake and I’m just a plumber!
There are step by step lessons on how to do the whole lot… start to finish. The lessons aren’t boring pages of endless paragraphs spouting technical computer jargon. There are videos, pictures and actual tasks.
One thing the guys at WA are very keen on is taking action. You have to complete tasks before moving onto the next lesson… which forces you to get started on your journey to online success.
You’ll actually be gradually building your website, your new business, in small, manageable chunks. And it is all really simple to understand.
Now I feel that I should let you know there is a premium option at Wealthy Affiliate. If you make the decision (which is not forced upon you, but well worth it!) to become a premium member, you’ll benefit from more in depth training that focuses on the more technical areas of affiliate marketing.
I’m not going to go on too much about the premium membership here, I don’t need to. All I need you to do is take action now and sign up for a free account! You’ll soon find out what they can do for you.
What If I Can’t Find the Help I’m Looking For?
Just ask the community. Post a comment on one of the forums, message one of the top members or even the co-owner, Kyle, who is always on hand to help in anyway he can (I have to say that I find it quite phenomenal that the owner of this amazing site, makes time for each and every one of the members, weather premium or starter).
The guys at Wealthy Affiliate are amazing, they really are. They actively look for ways to help people. They’ll give you feedback as your site progresses. They’ll give you tips on how to drive traffic to your site. They genuinely can’t do enough for you.
At Wealthy Affiliate, we’re a family of people driven to achieve. I really hope to see you there!
