None of us are born affiliate marketers, we have to get some knowledge about how to go about it and eventually become successful at it. So where does one go to get the necessary knowledge about affiliate marketing? One of the places to start your training is right here at Wealthy Affiliate and it’s free to take a look at and even get your feet wet with it. Wealthy Affiliate also offers a premium membership with loads of more in-depth training than the free membership offers. Once you get to the point (like a lot of members) where you say to yourself “I want more than what the starter membership has to offer” then, by all means, go premium. There are a couple plans to fit your budget, like $49.00 monthly or $359.00 annually, which comes to less than $30.00 a month.
Training is really top-notch on this website. With every phase of the lessons is a tutorial video that runs anywhere from 25 minutes to a full hour long, plus all the dialog and exercises the student has to complete. In the first phase called Online Entrepreneur Certification, there are 5 courses of 50 lessons, about 10 lessons per phase (or course) and the next phase (Bootcamp) has 7 courses with 70 lessons. So that is some training that will keep a person busy while learning the business of affiliate marketing. Then every week Jay (WA member) puts out an hour-long tutorial video on a topic relevant to some new training or just redefining some training already in existence. Sometimes there are more than one or two ways to explain something and Jay does a nice job with his Magistudios Webinars. Premium members get this for free every week to further their training.
Then there are the regular members who chime in with their insights and thoughts and put out some real informative advice or blogs. Read what interests you and skip the rest. I must get 20 to 25 emails daily from Wealthy Affiliate members with some gem of information associated with internet marketing. All trying to be helpful with some bit of information they feel will help me and others succeed. The community as a whole is very helpful even writing about their failures and not wanting the rest of us to fall in the same trap. It is very hard to admit one’s failures and to put it down for everyone to see is very courageous on their part, but that is the makeup of the members here. Everyone here has the mindset of we all succeed together and have no qualms about sharing their success stories. The attitude is we are all in this together and failure is not an option.
If a member has a technical problem with anything related to Wealthy Affiliate there is a team of experts waiting to solve the problem and they do. I can relate first hand to this as my problem was resolved within 24 hours. I just had to fill out a support ticket and they corrected the problem to my satisfaction. Like I said earlier, just throw out a question or a problem to the membership and someone will surely have an answer. Or if you want to get more personal and know the person you wish to communicate with you can send them a one on one personal message and that goes for the owners as well. A very open-minded forum. Then there is the Live Chat forum where everyone chimes in and you certainly will get your question or problems solved by other members. Have you ever found another website that offers that kind of support? I didn’t think so. All in the name of training.
On this platform you have so much training it’s hard to believe. Online marketing is not an easy endeavor. Perseverance is a must if you want to be successful. The old saying “Rome wasn’t built in a day” can apply to online affiliate marketing too. A person has to work at it and not just go about it willy-nilly. If that were the case, everybody and their brother would be doing it. Making a fast buck does not belong in the same sentence with affiliate marketing.
Training doesn’t end with just reading from the training manual. Work is involved, given tasks to prove to yourself that you understand just what you’ve read and can put into action. Just do the work, the training is there for your benefit, no one else. It is such a waste of time to just read something and not do any of the tasks involved. Seems like a waste of time to me. If I’m going to spend the time to read the material, I might as well complete the task and finish the project.
In the first part of training called the Online Entrepreneur Certification, all phases are designed to help you understand what goes into becoming a successful affiliate marketer. Every aspect you would want to help you make a go of it is somewhere in the course. How to set up a website. How to find good keywords to use in any article. How to choose a profitable niche. How to effectively incorporate affiliate links into your content. How to get instant access to product news within your industry. How to earn money through affiliate programs in your niche. How to add shopping widgets to your website. I could go on and on about the “how to” training here, and that’s only in the first course. The platform includes everything you might need, and then some, to be a successful affiliate marketer. Just do the work and good things will follow.
After the Online Entrepreneur Certification course, the next course to tackle is the Affiliate Bootcamp Course. There are seven different sections with ten lessons in each segment, so seventy lessons with video and tasks to perform. All to teach people the ins and outs of affiliate marketing and make your journey enjoyable and profitable. This affiliate marketing platform is no “get-rich-quick” endeavor, it can be a lifelong job if one chooses for it to be. Not a scam in any way shape or form, just a good way to make money.
Good luck on your endeavor and make some money.
