Wealthy Affiliate (WA)
WA is a membership site that offers quality services that includes training programs, website tools, and an interactive community of thousands of bloggers and web marketers. It's practically a social network for marketers.
If you talk to any digital marketer, or at least someone who's done it in the past, there's a big chance they'll tell you that it's one of the tougher things to do and that you should seek some professional help.
At least, that's what I try to tell every person who comes to me for advice on how to get started online.
When I started, and I mean my very first website, I didn't have a clue what I was doing. I don't tell this story much, but here's what happened:
First of all, I was "broke as a joke". There were no job opportunities whatsoever in my small hometown of less than a thousand. So, I did what anyone in the digital age would do...look for some opportunity on the internet.
Did I find one? Not exactly. But I did find something. It was a guide on how to start a website and make money with it. And since it was on a blog, there wasn't anyone really guiding you or providing support.
That's the problem with blogs. They may have some of the best advice in the world, but at the end of the day, it's still just a blog post. You know?
Blog posts aren't in-depth training courses that will literally walk you through every step of the process. You know what I mean?
Yeah. Well, that's what happened to me. I was broke. I couldn't afford any high-end training or coaching.
About 6 months later, this was in 2013, I tried again. Almost the same thing happened. There's no need to say anything else about that.
Then in mid-2014, I went in with a different mindset. Before, I was looking to make fast cash. But this time, I did a lot of research and reading. This time, I was patient.
I knew I needed legitimate training. I had some money from a 4-week odd job left over. So, I had enough to purchase something online.
It wasn't until July when I found something helpful. But not before getting into a couple MLM programs, where I lost a bunch of money (don't ever get into MLM!!!).
Anyway, on July 8th, I remember it clearly, I found Wealthy Affiliate. After reading about a dozen reviews from real life members, I knew this was it. They had it all.
And I'm not just talking about the training. They have that in abundance. But they also have the website building tools to help you get started right away.
And not just that. They also have community, which is priceless, since you have access to 24/7 support.
Anyway, why don't we take an in-depth look at what exactly the Wealthy Affiliate platform provides.
Wealthy Affiliate (WA) is a membership program for people who wants to learn how to make money online.
They provide step-by-step training that'll take you by the hand and walk you through the process of building a website that makes money.
WA also provides you with the tools you would need to actually create your websites, meaning the domain names and the web hosting.
We mentioned that Wealthy Affiliate gives you everything you need. Here they are in a consumable list:
WA gives you access to 2 main training programs that are designed for beginners. The first one 5 courses that shows you how to build a website on a topic you're passionate about. The second one shows you how to build one that promotes the WA program.
To actually create a website, you'd need a domain name and web hosting. Domains, for example, look like this: mydomainname.com. Web hosting gives your site life, basically, by storing them in data servers. WA also gives you an easy-to-use site builder and more.
There's nothing more dreadful than not getting help when you need it the most. Especially when you're just starting out. WA's support team are quick. They reply within minutes. There's also the live chat and the social media-like members area where you can post anytime.
So you're probably wondering what you'll actually be doing to make money. Yes, you know that you'll be building websites and make money selling other people's products. But how?
In this section, we'll go through it a little bit. So let's check it out.
The very first step to building money-making websites is to choose the perfect website topic, also known as your niche.
WA recommends that you choose something you're passionate about, or at least mildly interested in.
From experience, picking a niche you're not interested in is a big mistake. No matter how profitable it may be, you'll eventually lose all motivation to work on it.
So, if you're a passionate gamer, choosing a gaming-related niche or topic is ideal.
For those who cannot come up with a niche on their own, you can take the WA Affiliate Bootcamp training and build a site that focuses on getting people to become premium WA members.
I'd strongly suggest you start with your own niche though. The WA niche is very competitive. You would go against WA's elite members who are expert marketers.
After you decide on a niche, or even the affiliate bootcamp, it'll be time to create your website.
WA makes the creation process a walk in the park. Their website platform, SiteRubix, will give you access to your domain name, web hosting, and one-click installation. All this is included in the WA Premium plan, which is the only paid product.
When your site is live, the training will walk you through every step of the website building process.
You will learn how to...
As you can probably tell, WA's model revolves around high-quality content.
There's a lot more to building sites than content creation. It's all covered in WA's 5-course program.
The number one way you'll drive website traffic is through Google search. That means you'll optimize your website + pages so that they'll show up in the results pages when someone searches for something relevant to your site.
For instance, let's say you have a page that covers the best drones or quadcopters under $100. When someone Googles something like "cheap drones" or "best quadcopters under $100," WA's training will show you how to optimize your content so that it'll rank in the top 10, where all the search traffic is.
The ranking and content creation process looks something like this:
To make money, you already know you're gonna sell other people's products.
For you to actually do this, you'll need a product that is a part of someone's affiliate program or network.
An affiliate program is basically software for product owners where they can sign people up and have them promote their products. These programs provide special links that'll track the amount of clicks and sales you'll generate.
And an affiliate network is basically a giant network of affiliate programs where you can signup for as many as you'd like and only have one dashboard to keep track of everything.
So anyway, to make money, you would need to find a product that has an affiliate program and get your visitors to click your affiliate links.
This can be through a product review, an advertisement on your sidebar, or some other form of content.
Wealthy Affiliate is a membership program that provides everything you need to build a website from scratch and generate income selling other people's products.
Even though it sounds tough, WA's step-by-step training and website building tools makes it easy so anyone can do it. Even people who aren't tech savvy.
