How You Can Become a Wealthy Affiliate Marketer
Wealthy Affiliate is an online learning program designed to teach beginners and intermediate internet marketers how to build and operate a website and monetize it using affiliate marketing. They also provide a website hosting service with excellent customer support for members.
I’ve been a member of Wealthy Affiliate for more than three years so I can speak from personal experience.
Let’s start with the front door. A casual visitor will see this portal. On the left you’ll see community activity. There are thousands of members from all corners of the globe, it’s a truly international community. Members can ask and answer questions, introduce themselves, share their online experiences and more senior members can contribute to the training. At the last count, I’ve personally produced eighty five videos and tutorials which I share with the Wealthy Affiliate community.
On the right is a form to use to join the community. Initially you’ll create a free account as a means to try out some of the premium features and build your first website.
You will not be asked for your credit card or PayPal details when you join as a free member. So join in and have some fun building a website knowing that it won’t cost you a dime to get started.
The free account gives access to the first level of lessons called ‘Getting Started’.
There’s ten lessons here which teach you how to create a brand new website and start adding content. It’s a self-paced course so you can take as long (or as short) a time as you need.
During your first seven days you will have access to Live Chat where you’ll be able to ask questions and interact with whoever is spending time in there.
You will also be able to write and publish blogs for other members to read and comment on.
You can ask questions using the search box at the top of the page if you’re a bit reluctant to join in on Live Chat. Some people find Live Chat to be a bit fast and overwhelming.
In fact, the whole thing can be overwhelming if you try to progress too fast. So I encourage you to take your time and follow all the steps that are laid out for you during the courses. Absorb as much as you need from each lesson before moving on to the next.
You will be invited to upgrade to premium membership to retain all those features (and more) and continue with the higher levels of lessons. This is optional but I highly encourage you to upgrade.
The premium membership gives you access to the Keyword Tool which is a big help with search engine optimization. And lots more goodies that you’ll discover once you become a member.
There are five levels of lessons with ten lessons in each level making a total of fifty lessons in the Certification courses.
There’s also the Affiliate Bootcamp for people who want to break into the make money online niche and promote Wealthy Affiliate themselves. The commission structure is excellent, paying premium members twice as much as it does for free members. Yes you can promote Wealthy Affiliate as a free member and there’s another level of ten lessons available for free when you join.
Promoting Wealthy Affiliate is entirely optional and it’s by no means the reason why you should join. Building your own traffic and income producing website is the main reason most members are here. And you’ll do that with affiliate marketing promoting other people’s products and earning commissions. And there are millions of products you can promote once you get started.
Let me show you another portal. This is what you’ll see when you click on the link below this video. Yes, that’s me with a very short video to introduce you to Wealthy Affiliate. The sign up form is the same and the terms are exactly the same but people who join using my link get access to one-on-one help from me.
Premium members can send me private messages asking for my personal help on any aspects of the training and their online journey. I’ve been a premium member of Wealthy Affiliate since the middle of 2014 and I’ve been developing websites since 2002. So I’ve got a lot of experience to help you through any glitches you may have. You’ll also get access to my eighty five plus videos and tutorials.
