I named this post My Wealthy Affiliate because I am blessed to have stumbled upon an extraordinary company with so much to offer, so I consider this company mine. I feel confident that you will discover this same company is also for you. In this article, I will tell you the story of My Wealthy Affiliate and why it might be for you. We will unlock some aspects about the platform and information that is indeed not a secret to the world of affiliate marketing. Secrets that Wealthy Affiliate will freely share with you.
I will tell you the truth because nothing is perfect and you need to know the whole story to make a properly informed decision.
A touch of history
I thought this would be an excellent time to introduce you to the founders of my Wealthy Affiliate.
Kyle Loudoun and Carson Lim founded WA in 2005. They met at university and had a dream. With this dream in mind, they started the company offering high search keywords for internet marketers.
For the past 13 years, they have continued to improve on the Wealthy Affiliate platform. They are now owner and operator of one of the worlds leading website building platforms unmatched by any other company in the industry.
Why? Why Wealthy Affiliate?
I began writing poetry in high school. Over the years I set it aside to raise a family and frankly to make it through life. Three years ago I started writing again. Consequently, I could not reach the world unless I had a blog site. I set up a website and began to write.
But no matter how much I wrote I still couldn’t get a following on my website, so no one saw my work. My work is written to inspire others and help them. I was helping a few but not as many as I wanted to help.
I searched and researched, but I didn’t understand how to get my work ranked on google. One day I was looking for reviews on a particular company and stumbled across a site talking about Wealthy Affiliate. They spoke about learning affiliate marketing which I will explain better in the next paragraph. The one thing that caught my eye was “no credit card required.” I put my email in and had a look around.
Affiliate marketing? I don’t understand!
You may already know what affiliate marketing is, but I had no clue. The Wealthy Affiliate gears this platform toward beginners. I will assume you are also a beginner and I will explain in greater detail what this all means.
Affiliate marketing is easy; you become an affiliate (free partner) of companies who sell the products you promote. In the Wealthy Affiliate training, you will learn how to select from 598,500,000 products to sell on your website. When someone clicks on the link and purchases an item, you make a commission from the affiliate company. Once again this is why I call it my wealthy affiliate. I am a part of Wealthy Affiliate, I have made new wonderful friends and added to my family.
You can build a website in any niche you choose and promote any products from an affiliate company. Or you can become affiliated with numerous companies and have multiple sites. Initially, you get two websites, but what you upgrade to a premium member, you get 25 websites which are an unbeatable difference.
A niche, a nitch, a hitch
A niche is a passion that moves you. You feel so strongly about it that you want to tell the world about what you love. But let’s say you don’t know what that is, no problem. Wealthy Affiliate has JAAXY. Jaaxy is a platform developed by affiliate marketers built strictly for affiliate marketers. You can search for niche ideas and keywords to let the world know about your new hidden passion. Not only that but, you can look at your competition and choose a niche that is just perfect for you.
My Wealthy Affiliate offers Jaaxy as a platform search tool.
I have to be honest. You get 30 free keyword searches. As a result of your growing business, you may need more than 30. If this is so, you will need to upgrade to a higher level. Premium does not include a higher level of Jaaxy. But with the upgrade to premium within Wealthy Affiliate you get a 50% discount on Jaaxy upgrades.
The treasure within
I quickly realized WA talks about free membership, but I view it as a 7-day trial to see if it is what you want to do. A 7-day trial or free membership didn’t bother me because I felt that seven days without giving them a credit card was a good deal. An option such of as this gave me time to make a crucial life-changing decision on how I want to spend my money.
I began the first ten FREE lessons. In those beginning lessons, I learned more in 5 days than I could find out in 3 years on my own.
First 6 out of 10 lessons that sealed it for me
1. Getting Rolling!
an overview of WA and the platform
2. Understanding How to Make Money Online
understanding affiliate marketing and the many ways to generate an income
3. Choose a Niche
understanding and choosing a passion that you can make a living.
4. Building Your OWN Niche Website
step-by-step training on building your website
5. Setting Up Your Website
designing your website in 3 easy steps taught by the co-founder Kyle
6. Getting Your Site Ready for Search Engines
At this point, I knew Wealthy Affiliate was for me. Everything I had been researching for three years and did not understand I found in this training. Wealth Affiliate taught me secrets that lifted a weight off of my shoulders. I had arrived. Becoming premium was the most significant step and one of the most important decisions I have ever made to change my life.
I also knew that Google could now see my writing because the extensive training taught me how to properly optimize it to rank number 1 on the search engines.
There are four more lessons in the free offer, but when I finished this one, I became premium. After listening to the way, Kyle had set up each teaching and what an incredible teacher he is I didn’t need to hear more to make my decision. My wealthy affiliate had become a part of my life.
World-class time-tested platform? What did I see?
I saw a community built on the “pay it forward principle.” I grew to love the kindness and helpfulness of individuals within a whole new world of the internet.
For the first five days before becoming premium, I was allowed to read all of the blogs posted within the community and learn from all of the questions and answers from premium members. The WA community had some of the most incredible experts I had ever met. I knew if I became a premium member I would have full access to unlimited training, private messaging, and live chat.
When I decided to move up, I acquired unlimited ability to ask any question at any time. Wealthy Affiliate is an international company. Someone is always awake in the world. With my premium subscription, I private messaged other members, and I received answers and technical support almost immediately.
I had 24/7/365 day support for my website. Some companies take up to 24 hours to answer a question. When you are trying to reach the world 24 hours feels like a lifetime.
Money Money, Money, is it for you?
Money is for almost everyone. We all want money or need money or like money. But the question here is; Is Wealthy Affiliate the type of place for you. It’s not for everyone. It’s not a get rich quick scheme.
I have to be honest with you here. Due to my desire to reach the world, I didn’t even consider I could make money with Wealthy Affiliate. Becoming a premium member was not because of the money. Instead, it was to accomplish the goal I set for myself three years ago. I didn’t catch on until later into the program that I could make money.
But now that I know what kind of treasure is inside I am thrilled all over again. It takes work and time and effort. If you consider yourself to have good work ethics and are a person of integrity, then WA may be for you. Do you want to be proud of the work you put in for the gain you receive? Then WA may be for you.
Will you make money in the first month. Probably not. There is a step-by-step process to grow and become an owner of your business. Do you want to be an entrepreneur? Do you want to set your own time and be your boss? Then it might be for you.
But if you are looking for a way to make money fast and do little to no work for it, then WA is not for you. If you are looking for someone to do the job for you, then WA is not for you. But if you want to be proud of the work you put in for the gain you receive? Then WA is for you.
I have given you my honest opinion of Wealthy Affiliate. You have the information needed to make a well-informed decision. I am sure you are starting to see why I call WA my wealthy affiliate-it might be for you. To sum it up;
