How are Wealthy Affiliate doing

So, 4 weeks in:

How are Wealthy Affiliate doing 1

How are they doing?

Are they the real deal? How are Wealthy Affiliate doing?

I decided to sign up with Wealthy Affiliates,  it was free after all.  I didn`t expect much.

There was the free level and then you could upgrade to Premium which offered so much more for a monthly fee. Still  sceptical I waited to be pressured to upgrade.

No pressure! Hmmmm.

Instead I was being welcomed and offered training. Clearly suspicious!

What sort of scam was this?

I stayed to check them out to decide once and for all.

The community was so welcoming with offers of help. Maybe it wouldn`t last perhaps this was to draw me in.

I started on the training and was amazed how straightforward it was. Step by step website building. I could watch a step on the video, stop it and then carry it out on my site. Sounds a long way of doing it but it worked well for me as I am not ‘techie’ minded. I have never built a wordpress site before despite selling online for nearly 10 years.

They seemed so complicated to create, I avoided trying.

I had a week to decide whether I wanted to join Premium for half price for the first month. As the week went on I was so excited about the amount I was learning I decided to go ahead. It was only for the 1 month though! (Still sceptical)

This shows what you get for which plan.How are Wealthy Affiliate doing 2

 

You don’t have to join Premium, I think some do stay on the starter plan longer. Me? I love to learn and I want to succeed. The greater the knowledge the better chance I have.

What support is available?surround yourself with successful people

Would probably be easier to say what isn’t!

I have asked questions and had several very helpful answers very quickly.

Personal mentoring is available, though not tried that.

There is Live chat, for help and encouragement. (I’ve had a look but not taken part yet)

The community as a whole is very supportive We are encouraged to grow a network, which means you have a pool of people who get notifications when you ask a question or post a blog etc. The bigger the network  the larger the pool.

Training

Training Videos, take you through each part step by step to build your knowledge. Trained affiliates also create training videos on all manner of subjects. If you are keen to increase your knowledge, this can feel like being a kid in a sweet shop, being told you can have as much as you like.

I find myself watching and then implementing all sorts of information. As soon I I learn it, that’s it, I’m off to the social media site in question, or my website or Google console, to carry out the instructions.

I have a sneaking suspicion that much of it is in the training I’m doing. I would get through it faster if I focused more and stopped rushing off here and there because I want to know everything right now!

There are also weekly Live Classes (and 100’s of hours of replays). I haven’t attended any of these yet so cannot wax lyrical about them. That’ something else that I will go into once I learn about it first hand.

Affiliate Bootcamp!

I am doing the Affiliate Bootcamp training to start with, to be an Affiliate for WA. I have nearly finished the first training course of 7. Each part has 10 video lessons, so it’s a comprehensive course.

I now have a wordpress website created by ME! I am very proud of myself  for having achieved that much. Step by step I will be improving it and my knowledge as I work through the various levels.

Keyword Research Tool.

I have found this tool very useful for keywords but it has many more uses too, so far I have mainly used it for keywords and not looked at all the other useful things it does. I will let you know about the other uses as I discover more.

What else is there?

Below is a list of all the other things you get by being part of WA.  I will go through these in future blogs as I learn all about them. I prefer to talk about what I know because I have used it or taken part in it rather than looking up the information and adding it without knowing firsthand.

  • Ambassadorship Program
  • Online Entrepreneur Certification
  • The Affiliate Program
  • Networking
  • Building Websites
  • Website Performance Tools (SiteRubix)
  • Website Engagement Platform (SiteComments)
  • The Hosting Platform
  • Site Content Writing Platform

Summary

So far I am loving WA. The training is amazing, so easy to follow.

The community is fantastic, questions are answered quickly even if they seem daft. I am very new to this world of affiliate marketing so I get stuck on something that I figure must be obvious to others. But, a very big BUT, I still need to know and ask anyway.

There is no mockery of my ignorance, just kindness and answers. In my opinion, considering how people can be online nowadays, that is amazing.

Anyway… the upshot is….. ta da……….. drum roll………..!

I intend to sign up for a year when my first month is up. Want to read more first? Go HERE!

Searching for online work is a journey

choice

So…….. you have been searching for work online…….

You may have heard, like I did, that there are more and more jobs online. They increase as the real world ones disappear. Searching for online work is a journey you start out on and then it gets complicated.

You start out innocently, unaware of what`s out there. Yes there is work but much seems to be poorly paid. You can earn more as a writer but it takes time to build a up a good reputation

What did you find? There are an awful lot of so called ‘opportunities’ out there. How do you sort the wheat from the chaff? So many people have lost  money to those “opportunity’s”. By the time you have been looking for several months you can become very jaded and no longer recognise a genuine opportunity.

I did learn that if it said any of these: “You can be earning money within 24/48 hours. By the end of the week you will have earned thousands. Yes it seems to be expensive but you will earn that back in days.” Then you should  avoid them like the plague.

It`s not easy at all trying to find something legitimate.

Research

So you do research, click every link that`s relevant. Put in endless searches, read blogs that compare the different platforms. On Facebook every other post has now become an advert for that dream life. Click on one once and you get more of the same with slight variations touting the get rich quick scheme with the fabulous lifestyle.Sunny beach Searching for online work is a journey

Do they get bored sitting on a beach all day, every day. How do they manage to see their laptop screen with all that bright sun

You watch the endless free videos! They say… ‘You can earn mega money working online for 2 -3 hours a week’. Some say:

‘1-2 hours is all it takes’ and they sound very plausible.

You get to see the supposed earnings all laid out. Amazing.

There they are, on  a beach in Bali/Hawaii (those are favourites) or anywhere that looks idyllic. Sometimes you see several different ‘system’ videos and they all look alike, same beach, same people. Funny that, pretty sure they can’t be actors. Can they? Hmmm. Not real then if they are. More proof!

The other ones!


Or you see someone standing in front of a big house beside an expensive sports car……… Sound familiar? Yep, me too. Seen quite a few of those. The one where the guy is working away at a table in a big kitchen of what you are supposed to think is his house. 

When you see one of those, check out the background. Very bland, nothing personal anywhere. It looks immaculate. Gosh, it wouldn’t be a film set would it? Or a country house/room in a hotel hired for a  few hours?

They always paint a picture of a wonderful life in far flung places, with or without families. Sitting on a beach, blue sky, a few fluffy tiny white clouds drifting, a beautiful view that shows where they are, a cocktail standing on the table. Oh and don’t forget the laptop there in full view.

Doesn`t that look and sound divine? Something to aspire to? All yours for so little effort, the picture with the laptop, sitting under a palm tree or parasol, a fabulous lifestyle. Yours , apparently, for the minimal effort of a couple of hours a week to attain and keep the lifestyle going.

Is it Real?

I thought it looked good, half  believed it, really wanted to believe it. It just didn’t quite ring true somehow. Especially the part about the hours required, I was prepared to work hard to achieve success. The trouble was, nothing more was offered to help you without paying out a small fortune. No glimpse of what was on offer for you to evaluate first. Could this be because there wasn’t any substance to it? I really didn’t know except there were alarm bells ringing in my head saying no! 

Having spoken to others, I am so glad I didn’t override my intuition, otherwise I too would have been much poorer.

It was a lesson in human behaviour, my own and those offering their ‘system’.

Have you found anything interesting out there?

Have you wasted hours and lots of cash to follow the dream? Let me know, I would love to hear from you.

Finally found what I sought

If you want to have a look and see where I ended up check this out. 

Wealthy Affiliate! I gave it a try because  it was free  to join.I  figured  I would  look  about  and  see  what was  on  offer.

I was cautiously impressed, then decided to take up an offer of a month at half price, to see if it would live up to the first impression.
Learn and Earn online with Wealthy Affiliate.

It did. I was very impressed with the quality of the training, the web hosting and the community.

I was so impressed I signed up for a year at the end of that first month because I knew that it was what I wanted to do.

You don’t have to only do affiliate marketing, you learn about loads more stuff than that. Whatever method you fancy running a business in, you can learn how and do it from one of the 10 websites available for you to use.

It is hard work, there is a lot to learn but the more you know, the easier it gets.

It costs absolutely nothing to look and evaluate. No card required to sign up. 

You can even learn to build a wordpress website, like I did, with the free training. Now that was very exciting.
