Wealthy Affiliate – The Solid Choice
What I am going to show you NOW is the BEST and most economical method to create an online presence without knowing the technology, without knowing how to get Google to recognize you and without hassles and exorbitant costs.
That is why I am here.
“I want to help you take Your Business Idea and quickly get YOU on the PERFECT path to Getting Started Online!”
I tried hiring a professional to teach me how to market myself and my business for an online presence. I wanted to learn to be self-sustaining. That, to me, is what owning my personal business means. Of course, that ignores the other huge benefits here in the USA! The tax benefits are huge.
The rewards are not limited to income but come with a satisfaction you have provided the best of the niche market you have chosen to your customers. Plus, if travel is in your plans, owning your business frees you from an 8-5 job, frees you to be your own boss and lets you work in your jammies at home most of the time! LOL
Since I have tried several approaches, I am very leery of scams. I will direct you to teachings that will help you immensely on this subject

I hope you can grasp the thoroughness and depth of training available to YOU. What is missing? Nothing! I have been on board for about 2 months and have not completed all the training. With each lesson, I learn more and become more comfortable with the affiliate marketing dynamics. I did leave out the incredible one on one training. And the portion of learning when someone else asks a question and you have an opportunity to participate and learn too! Whoops, one more – the content is kept current and still there is no cost associated for those new concepts and upgrades.
Moving on to the tools section you will find the following available at no cost.
- Keyword tool
- SiteProtect Spam Control
There are a plethora of tools but this is much too early to go into all of them. You will learn and take advantage of those you want as you progress. One may be the backup software using Dropbox.
Without Support, the learning curve would accelerate. Wealthy Affiliate’s support is beyond anything you could imagine. The atmosphere is fostered at the top and filters to each member of the community. People from all over the world reach out to help on your questions. The monitoring is active 24/7, 365 days a year.
Technical support? YES. If you should encounter an issue (I never have) tech support addresses it immediately and makes a correction or clarification if the problem is user oriented. They will answer questions regarding the various plugins, attributes of themes and performance. Turnaround time is measured in minutes, not hours. Incredible but true!
The areas I have reached out for help include:
- My writing – what to write, how long are the pages, pages vs blogs and flavor (tell stories).
- My niche – it was confusing to me. I received help to narrow it, define it and get comfortable with my approach.
- Images – where to find FREE images without royalties or penalties, which of my own are best, serious or comical and how many.
- Clarification on questions – The to-do lists at the end of each lesson posed some problems for me. Especially in the areas of Google+, Linkedin, Twitter and Instagram. I had never ventured there before.
- Building my website – the structure so it is easy for readers to follow and stay interested.
Wealthy Affiliate is fully staffed with the corporate team and the significantly knowledgeable community. They become your friends. Even if your answer is not immediately forthcoming, by morning someone across the pond, in Australia, in China will be awake and provide the answer.
Honest approaches without hype are my ‘cup of tea’. I do not like to be frustrated or confused. In fact, I prefer ‘look under the covers’ and try something before commit any resources. You may be asking; “why did you fall for the trainer mentioned in professional help secured before that was all about her fees”. Well, there was a failure on my part. She was highly recommended and her initial call was so enlightening I did not see through to the actual contract. Perfection – still a work in progress!
Try First – FREE
Trying BEFORE you buy is the exact reason that I am recommending this approach. Wealthy Affiliate will give you an inside look and let you touch and feel their products before you give them a PENNY of your own money. In fact, you do not even give them a credit card. Just your name and email.
The next pages will delve into the website setup. Stay tuned.
