Introduction to Wealthy Affiliate
Wealthy Affiliate is an affiliate marketing platform that was created in 2005 by Kyle and Carson.
Since 2009, the program has been rated the #1 online platform and now has over one million members.
The program is great for beginners into the online world. Their training and support are second to none, and YES, you can get started and build websites with the free membership!
Kyle and Carson are REAL people! You can talk to them anytime as they are always present within the Wealthy Affiliate community. And those one million members, you can talk with them too!
But let’s dig a little deeper into what Wealthy Affiliate really does…..
When you first visit WealthyAffiliate.com you will probably be skeptical but it doesn’t take long to realize that you can in fact get started immediately with FREE training! It is rare to find any company out there these days that stands behind their product enough to let you sample it for free without any obligation to purchase anything further. They won’t ask for your credit card or any further commitment. You can remain a Starter Member for as long as you choose. If you like what you see and what is available to you, you can opt to become a premium member. The choice is yours. I may just have a little bonus for you with that premium membership though.
Now before I go any further, let’s get this FREE thing out of the way. Here is what you will receive with the FREE STARTER MEMBERSHIP:
- 7 days of live help and one-on-one coaching
- 2 siterubix hosted websites
- full backup included
- the beginner training course with 2 training classrooms
- video walk-throughs
- Affiliate Bootcamp Training – Phase 1
- Affiliate Program
- Personal Affiliate Blog
No cost, nothing, nada, zip. Now that we have that out in the open, lets see what else Wealthy Affiliate has to offer beyond that. And just so you know, there IS NOT a $1000 price tag attached to any of this. Not even close.
Here is an indication of what you are going to learn…
- Getting Started
- Building Your Own Website
- Making Money
- Mastering Social Engagement
- Achieving Success through Content Creation
First Things First
The first step in building an online business is picking a niche. What is a niche? Well they teach you that too. Basically you want to pick an interest and/or product that you want your website to be based on. There are literally millions of possibilities. The more you know about your niche the easier it will be but you can also pick a topic that is something you’ve always wanted to learn more about. You will become an expert! Your niche should be something you will enjoy and have fun being involved in. This will ensure that the content you are going to write is valid and something you will feel good about doing.
If You Build it, They will Come
If you build it correctly, they will come! Building out your website is an important step. The training provides all the details you need. It covers everything from selecting a name for your site, to choosing a theme of how your site will be laid out, and how to write content.
The lessons are step by step and done at your own pace. Take your time, review if you need, and by all means reach out for help within the community.
Upon completion of this level, you will have a strong framework for your site and be ready to fill it with content and traffic!
Rush Hour on your Website
The third step in the training is getting traffic to your website which in turn will convert to revenue. It won’t start out like rush hour but the training will teach you how to get there.
You will learn the importance of keywords and phrases used in your website content that will draw people to your site. Billions of people use the internet everyday to research topics. You will learn how to write content that gets ranked in Google. Getting people to land on your site is key to future revenue.
Another great feature about Wealthy Affiliate is that the keyword search tool Jaaxy is built right into it. You don’t even have to leave WA to do your keyword research.
Show me the Money $$
The third step is also about learning to earn revenue from your site. This can happen in several ways. If your niche is your own product, you will earn revenue from the sale of that product. Revenue can also be earned from advertising, email lists, and affiliate programs.
The training will teach you how to become an affiliate marketer. You will be able to associate with Amazon, EBay, Google and others by linking their ads to your website. Any store with an affiliate program will pay you commission to target products on their site.
Let’s Get Social
The fourth training is based around bringing your niche to social media. We all know the impact of social media and you want to take advantage of this and your social circles to present your site.
Dig Your Teeth In
The fifth and final step in the training is learning to write content. You will learn not only where to get content ideas but how to write and layout your content for optimum traffic. Your content will then be indexed in the search engines and you will begin to see traffic and eventually sales!
Support from Wealthy Affiliate – Welcome to the Community
This community of members, in my opinion, has to be one of the greatest things I’ve ever experienced.
Not only can you reach out to Kyle and Carson, the owners, but you are encouraged to seek assistance from other members. If you post a question or concern, guaranteed you will get answers that will assist you. This is true throughout the whole training and beyond. As long as you are a member, the community is available. Just as you will become available to help others.
I, too, will be on the inside as part of that community and am available for questions and support.
There is also a database of Q &A that you can access with a simple search.
Anything you can imagine, it’s here for you. Taking the step to go Premium and have access to all of this training that is available, is one of those “don’t look back” moments.
I am very confident that once you get a taste with the starter membership, you are going to want to move forward. If you’ve ever gone house or car shopping you will understand the feeling when you just know you’ve found the right one! It is the same inside Wealthy Affiliate. As soon as you get started, you just know!
As I have already stated, you can and will get a free starter membership. Below is a chart showing what the free membership includes. It also shows what you will receive if you become a premium member. I believe that if you are serious about online marketing, premium is the best option. That is where you will get the most complete training and the most support. The Premium membership is $49 US per month or $359 US per year($30/mth). It does not cost you anything to register a website (unless you purchase a .com for about $14 per year).
That’s it! That’s all! No other fees, no upgrades after Premium, no back end sales!
Why Wealthy Affiliate
Why Not? would be my question!
- in depth training and direct access to owners
- websites hosted, backed up, and secured
- thousands of WordPress themes to choose from for your site
- Jaaxy keyword search tool built in
- free images within the content writer
- support from over one million members at any time of day or night
- ongoing weekly training seminars
- regularly updated training in tune with the online world
Hosting a website alone anywhere else is easily compared at $250/yr. At Wealthy Affiliate you get that and so much more!
Where else can you get a Premium Membership and a .com website for $1 per day? (Based on yearly membership) That’s it! That’s all it’s ever going to cost you! Wealthy Affiliate has not raised the membership price since their inception in 2005!
All the tools you need are provided by Wealthy Affiliate. The only other thing you require is the determination to succeed! This will take work on your part. Anything worth achieving takes hard work. You are not going to see huge amounts of revenue in a few months. This will take time. How much time, depends on how much YOU put into it. If you have the drive and the determination to see it through, Wealthy Affiliate will provide everything else.
In fact, I’m so sure that you will love this, I’m going to offer you a BONUS!
Sign up for a starter account and check it out. If you love what you see and choose to become a PREMIUM MEMBER in the first 7 days, I will give you a bonus! I will send you a letter once you sign up for the starter account to tell you how to get your bonus.
Here’s to your success!! Are you ready?
