What Is Wealthy Affiliate Program? Very Good Question

Passion equals business equals passive income

I am sure that you have heard of Wealthy Affiliate by now. You see reviews on it EVERYWHERE right? Are you asking yourself, what is Wealthy Affiliate program? Or are you asking me? Maybe a little of both, right?

What is all the hype about? Should I join? Yes you should. Why should I join Wealthy Affiliate, you ask? In all honesty, the reason would be, because you want to have your own online business and be your own boss. You have to be a stay at home parent and want to work from your own home.

Having a flexible “work when YOU want” schedule and not having anyone breathing down your neck and no alarm clock to hit. Being able to get to your child’s school play without needing to ask for time off or having to get someone to cover you.

The list can go on and on. I know for me, I needed to work from home and be with my girls and continue to be able to go to their activities, games and meets.

I will tell you what made me join Wealthy Affiliate and explain what Wealthy Affiliate really is. Just stay with me and I am sure this will help you decide if you should join as well.

What Is Wealthy Affiliate

First let me tell you what it is NOT. It is not a get rich overnight scheme nor is it an auto pilot or built for you program. In order to be successful with anything, it is up to you. You have to work for it.

It is not filled with upsells. It is definitely not a scam. It is not a program that will promise you riches and fame. You get this by correctly implementing what the training will teach you.

Wealthy Affiliate is by far the best online entrepreneur training platform ANYWHERE. They not only teach you how to become an entrepreneur, but a successful one. It has over one million members from all over the world.

This is a place that will teach you to take something that you are passionate about and turn it into your own successful business. You base your business on what you enjoy.

Imagine this, you love to cook and have created your own recipes, or have tweaked the recipes of others. Imagine the feeling you would have earning passive income on your own website, just by helping others create delicious meals for their families with your recipes?

No matter what you love to do or how you want to help others, you can do it with Wealthy Affiliate and it’s knowledgeable community.

You will learn how and where to find products or services to sell/promote that revolve around your business, in order to earn commissions.

Yes, you will need to do a lot of writing and or creating videos. But don’t worry, I wasn’t a writer either. You will be surprised at what you can do when you focus on your goal. Make money working from home and be successful at it.

You get so much more than what you pay for. I will give you a more detailed breakdown through this post. It is hard for me to contain myself because Wealthy Affiliate just has so much to offer. I will do my best to contain my composure.

Training

You are given two types of courses that you can take and yes you are free to take them both. I do suggest starting out with the Onlinse Certification Entrepreneur first and then take the Bootcamp course.

Online Entrepreneur Certification will teach you everything you need to know about building your website/online business with a step by step approach.

Affiliate Bootcamp which is for those who love and believe in Wealthy Affiliate and want to promote it. You can take what you learn and use it to promote other services as well. If you were a member you would definitely want to take them both.

Training at W AThe training provided applies to beginners as well as experts. Even for those who have not a clue as to how affiliate marketing works or how to build an online business.

Thanks to the step by step training you are more likely to get a better understanding and learn more with this type of training than you would with other platforms.

The lessons also include videos of Kyle not only showing you the process of the task at hand, but explaining it as well.

Each task will be what helps get your business up and running as well as help you to understand the process.

There are 5 courses in Online Entrepreneur Certification and 10 lessons in each course.

You will have task to complete after each lesson. The task are geared toward the corresponding lesson. This is the step-by-step process.

You may be thinking, 5 courses? That doesn’t seem like much training. If that is what you thought, you are definitely wrong. There is so much to learn in each course that some may get overwhelmed at the amount of information there is.

Getting Started Level 1

This lesson is pretty much self-explanatory if you have some knowledge of affiliate marketing. If you don’t ( I didn’t have a clue when I first joined), it will give you a description of the 4 major steps in building a successful online business.

Building Your Own Traffic Producing Website Level 2

You will learn different techniques to getting traffic to your website/business. We all know that getting your website in front of people proves to be highly important.

Making Money Level 3

In this course you will learn many ways on how to earn money through your traffic and through your business/website.

Mastering Social Engagement Level 4

This course will help you to better understand using social media world in every aspect to better promote your business/website.

Achieving Maximum Success Through Content Creation Level 5

Last but not least, this course will help you with your content. After all, this will be the reason why your readers/customers come to your site and get them to buy the product/service that you are promoting or selling.

Even though these are just a brief description of the course, what they will teach you has so much more entailed to it than I can even begin to describe.

Kyle (co owner) and Carson (co owner) started out writing keyword list for others and getting paid for them. This just goes to show that even at that time they weren’t strangers to what it takes to become successful.

They both knew that they wanted a better way to help others which is how Wealthy Affiliate was created. Even though they are the owners, they are both very active in the community and continue to help members in many ways.

Free Training

The training that is available grows just as much as the changes in the online world grows. Thanks to Kyle and Carson’s Live Training by Jayencouragement, members also help with creating their own training and provide it free of charge.

Of course the owners add more of their own training and blogs to further help their members with changes that happen in the online marketing world as well.

Kyle and Carson have over 15 years of experience in this business. They do not keep things to themselves that may benefit their members. They truly care and they show it.

 

GDPR Training W AOur privacy policy recently changed in order to be compliant with the GDPR. Between Kyle, Carson, Marion and Loes (2 awesome members) the transition into the new policy went much smoother.

Loes and Marion created training to show us how to set up the new policy, edit what we needed to, and how to install the plugin that was now needed as well.

Now, where else would you get this type of team work and support?

The best part is, they did it out of the kindness of their heart. They provided this training to us and never even thought to charge us or anything. The members have created training on almost anything you can think of that has to do with affiliate marketing.

Another huge contributor to training would be a member named Jay. Every Friday he holds a live training session with live Q and A at the end. Jay is extremely knowledgeable in every way possible when it comes to online business and marketing.

SiteRubixTools

Don’t worry. These are tools that anyone can use when you have the proper training.

If you have joined other programs in the past, I am sure you noticed that you didn’t get everything for free. At Wealthy Affiliate, everything you need is included;

This means that you will have the best keyword research tool, Jaaxy. You will not only be able to research keywords but you can also, save them to a list, create a draft for a post to write at a later time.

Wonder how your website is ranking, just check Jaaxy. Jaaxy offers brainstorming as well as alphabet soup, You will also get WordPress for building your website.

No need for coding or old school website building. Using WordPress makes building your site so much easier. You will have access to thousands of themes, plugins and widgets, as well as images.

Can’t forget about All In One SEO Pack, which gives you optimization for your website. It is beginner friendly just like everything in Wealthy Affiliate.

SiteRubix is an amazing tool that has multiple functions from choosing a domain to creating content, adding images from it image library with over 100,000 images or upload your own.

Give and receive comments as well as feedback on your post/page. SiteRubix as well as Jaaxy and WordPress are just some of the awesome tools you will have access to in order to aid you in building your successful online business.

Having trouble with your website is no issue at all in order to get SiteSupport. At the click of the mouse you can submit a ticket and get a response in a record amount of time.

Support

I am willing to bet that you have not, nor will you find the support that is given at Wealthy Affiliate. Trust me. I have seen some programs with so called “support”.

There is an abundance amount of support there. Anytime you have a question, need some clarity or just need encouragement, there is always someone there to help.

We have the advantage of having live chat 24/7 365. This is awesome. Especially since there are members from all over the world.

It can be 2 in the morning and there will be someone there to help you. I have yet had a question that I did not receive help with.

If you are not to good with chat or just don’t like it, at the end of each lesson there is a place dedicated to asking questions pertaining to that course.

You can scroll through to see if your question has been answered already or just go ahead and ask your question. You will get a notification when someone replies. This is normally just a couple of minutes.

There is also a support center where you can click ask a question. This gives you a larger member reach. It is sore of like sending out a distress call.

When members see the question and they know how to help, the responses will start coming in. I am telling you, it is unlike anything I have ever seen in any type of program like this.

The Community

The community at W A is not only large in numbers, but in knowledge, strength and compassion as well. When Kyle and Carson were in the planning stages for Wealthy Affiliate, this is the type of community they wanted.

They have created a true “Pay It Forward” community. Members help each other in some way throughout every single day and night.

It might be sharing how one achieves success with getting traffic or encouraging a new member that may be feeling overwhelmed.

I have been on the receiving end many times. I had a member who spent at least a couple of hours helping me work on a logo.

In this community we all find members that leave such an impression on us that we want to be that same type of member. They were there for us from the beginning and are still there with us if we ever need them.

I have always been a person that wanted to help others. I now not only get to do it offline, but I get to help others through my website as well as help other members of W A.

Why I Joined

My life has been anything but normal. I will spare you those details, but what I have gone through is why I love to help others.

The last couple of years we had some changes in our life that prevented me from working outside our home. I had done some searching for work from home opportunities.

I had also researched this in the past, got involved in a few and well, lets just say I was taught a few lessons, but affiliate marketing wasn’t one of them.

From those experiences, I knew more about what to look for and wasn’t as naive this time so I knew not to fall for the “get rich” schemes. Those are just to make you see dollar signs and then line THEIR pockets with your money.

I knew nothing about affiliate marketing, but I knew I needed to work from home and earn some money. I also knew I wanted to help others. During my search I came across a review.

Since this wasn’t my first time around, my first thought was, Ugh, not another “Come join the BEST affiliate marketing program” review.

You know the ones that an already member writes a post and they all sound the same. Not this one. This one was filled with so much information and was written with honesty.

It didn’t fill me with false hope and they told me I would have to be the one to make my website successful and that they would show me how.

I just had a good feeling about it. Don’t get me wrong, I was still very skeptical. When I reached the bottom I saw “try it for free”. OK, now I was confused and stunned.

Free? Of course I thought there has to be a catch. After much deliberation, I clicked that button. I was so nervous. I just knew I was going to have to pay.

Nope. All I had to do was type in my email and create a password. I was flabbergasted. I couldn’t believe it. They had told me the truth. I did decide to become a premium member and have not regretted it.

Of course, I was still skeptical. After my first couple of days I had almost no skepticism. It was exciting yet overwhelming. After I was greeted by so many members including the owners, yeah I was loving it.

The fact that I was able to follow the training (when I didn’t even know what a keyword was) and I received answers almost immediately if I did have a question, I was hooked.

I began to see everything this member had written in their post. I have found what I have searched for many times and for years.

Did I Help You Answer The QuestionYes or No

To be honest, it is really something that you wouldn’t believe until you tried it for yourself. I can explain how wonderful it is until I am blue in the face. But would it really do any good?

You will either think the same way I did with the review that I had read, or if you are a newbie like I was, you may not even understand some of the things I mentioned.

If they can teach me how to build my own online business, and teach me the “lingo” as well as all the steps to making my business successful.

They can teach you as well. As long as you really want it and are willing to put the work into it. Sure, it may get difficult at times, depending on how much you already know and how fast you learn, but the members in the community love to help each other out. We will be there for you.

So here is your chance to have the life and freedom that you need and want, and the chance to be with your little ones at home or the chance to work from anywhere that has internet. You can be on a beach and still work. Like I said, it is absolutely FREE to try.

I did it. I knew if I didn’t, then I may miss my opportunity to work from home and earn money that will help my family. I wasn’t going to look back in a few years and have regrets because I didn’t give it a try.

We have so many members that have shared their story of how they didn’t join the first time they discovered W A, and of members that joined and didn’t take it serious in the beginning. The one thing they have in common? They all wished they had.

Ready to give it a try? Click here and be on your way to creating your online business. You are never alone at W A. I will be right there if you need me. I will also be in your cheering section. I am really good at that. Just ask all 7 of my kids.

I want to thank you for sticking with me until the end. I know it was sort of long. No matter what your decision is, I want you to know that even if it is later in life and you decide you want to give it a try. I will still be there for you.

If you have any questions, concerns, suggestions or comments, please do leave them down below. I love hearing them just as much as I love responding to them.

Wishing you the best  in all you do,

Lee Ann

Legit Work From Home Business

Work from home with your own business

Are you like me and are tired of working that 9 to 5 dead end job? Or maybe you just can’t seem to find one that you really enjoy and look forward to every day.

I am sure you have thought about having your own legit work from home business at some point in your life right? Why have you not gone for it?

Do you have an awesome boss or do you have the type of boss that seems to not even want to give you the time of day? They just want you to do your job and leave them alone?

Something must have changed in your life that brought you here today. Whatever the reason, just know with the right outlook and determination, you can build a successful online business.

Believe And It Will Happen

When it comes to having our own business we tend to think it will be too much hassle or cost way too much. I am sure that in a manner of speaking, this could be true.

It really depends on what type of business you want to get going. I personally had a great work history outside of my home. So how did I end up here? You can read that story by clicking here. I am not your average Jane.

Really want to be your own boss and work from home or anywhere, then you CAN do it. You have to believe in it first. Believe me, we are all skeptical in the beginning.

Especially when it comes to working from home online. The first thing that may pop into your head is scams and MLM’s that try to take all of your money and leave you with an empty pocket book.

Go into something with a negative outlook, then you might not be able to see the true potential. This can also cause us to miss out on opportunities that would have been great.

It Doesn’t Have To Break YouDoesn't break the bank

Having your own business does NOT have to break you when you are starting your own business online and working from home. Sure there are many platforms that claim they are cheap but really aren’t.

For someone who is just starting out you need to be careful of who you choose to teach you what you need to know. Making sure that you get your money’s worth.

You can’t go into it thinking that it isn’t going to cost you though. Nothing GOOD in life is for free. When it comes to starting your own business, it is a small price to pay.

Think about it, having an online business is actually cheaper than opening up an offline business. You don’t really have to worry about all the licensing and all that jazz.

I started my business with less than what I pay for my Starbucks double shot mocha that I am addicted to. I have at least 2 a day. That comes out to be more than what I pay for my membership.

Building your own business will be worth that one thing that you cut out of your lifestyle from day to day. If you really want to have your own business then you won’t even miss it.

It Is All About You

Building your own business means it is what you want it to be. Something that YOU enjoy, or know a lot about and enjoy helping others to learn about it.

If you are stuck in a boring job that you don’t really enjoy, then here is your chance to build a business that you do enjoy. One that puts you as the person in control, as your own boss.

Do you have a special kill? Share it, profit from it. What you can do with your business is limitless with possibilities. You are in control now. You only have yourself to answer to.

Whether you have your own product or have products that you use and believe in, you can build your business around it. Love helping parents with toddlers in the terrible two’s, write a blog.

It doesn’t matter what you love to do or what your skill or interest is, you can build an online business around it. It is about you, and then you can make it to be about others, which will get your business booming.

Have you ever searched up a how to video? Looked for a review on an appliance before purchasing it? What people search for on day to day basis might impress you.

What would really impress you is that your business is the one they land on when performing their search. Even better is that they make a purchase from you.

What Does It Really Take

When wanting your own online business you never really know where to start even if you know what type of business you want to have online.

Being that you are a beginner, you definitely want to learn how to build it and how to make it a success. So you take classes online? Do you search for free advice online? How do you go about getting the knowledge it will take?

If you already knew the answers to this, then you wouldn’t be here reading this right now, would you? No, because you would already have your online business going.

Getting the knowledge to build your successful online business is actually the easy part. That is what I am here for. To lead you into the right direction.

Will it happen overnight? Heck no. I am glad it doesn’t or I wouldn’t have much to do and would be bored. Yes, you will need to put time into it. You don’t go to work to not work do you?

You have to work for the money your earn, right? It will be the same for your online business. Don’t believe those who try to sell you on an “automated system that earns while you sleep”. It doesn’t work like that.

They are selling you on the idea that you don’t have to do anything once you set it up. But that is false hope. NO ONE can set up an online business, let it go without putting time into it, and it makes them successful.

What about the tools to build an online business? I got you covered with that too and it won’t cost you extra money either. Plus you will be shown how to do it.

If you have previously searched for work from home opportunities or how to start an online business before, I am sure you have seen some very interesting programs and some very pricey ones as well.

You may have even tried a few and lost money while not learning a darn thing from it. Maybe this caused you to lose hope or to just give up on the idea.

Don’t give up on your dream because of some money hungry idiot. You can make your dream come true. You won’t be able to quit your job overnight, but you can get to the point of quitting your job.

As long as you can put time aside to work on your business, it will get there. If you have faith and determination it will get there. It WILL depend on you to get it done.

But I can show you a place where you can get everything including support and encouragement when you need it. Anytime you have a question, there will be an answer and I will be there if you need me.

What am I talking about? I am talking about a program I stumbled on when I was looking to start my own business online. If you checked out the link I provided earlier, you know why I performed this search.

The Place Where Dreams Come True

My search was what started my wanting to help others online. I have always loved helping others. I worked in a physicians’ office and LOVED it. But then my life changed due to having to move. This is why I searched for an online opportunity.

I could have chosen a different way of helping others online. I am a family oriented individual who loves animals as well. I am a beast at multiplayer games on Xbox One. I also love to take pictures.

I could have chosen any of them to build my business on, but I chose to help others find legit work from home opportunities because of my own personal situation.

I want to be able to test other sites out so that you don’t get the raw end of the deal. I want you to be able to know what you will get once you get there.

I admit that I fell for a few scams. I mean even though we all know that you can’t get rich overnight, yet we still fall for it. They just make it look so convincing and we are so broke that we talk ourselves into it.

This is why I chose to do this. I want to help those who are in a similar situation as myself. Not everyone chooses to not work outside their home. Sometimes life just makes the choice for us. Whether it be health issues or not being able to have someone watch your little ones.

Anyway, I found an awesome place that taught me everything I needed to know to build my online business. It has given me the skills, tools and support that I still utilize every day.

The members there are out of this world. They aren’t just members, there are some really kind and caring individuals there that want to help you succeed. The owners included.

I want to share this place with you because it is legit. It has hundreds of thousands of members from all over the world that are building successful online businesses. A lot of them have several successful online businesses.

When you have a good, user-friendly platform easy enough for a beginner to do, that works, your members stay. There are members that have been there 10 years. Happy members build happy businesses. Wouldn’t you want to build your business at a place like that?

Get Started With W AIf you are serious about having your own online business, then you have nothing to lose. Join for free, stay free if you feel comfortable enough working on your own or become a premium member. The choice is yours. Your dream is waiting to come true.

If you have any questions concerns or comments. I would love to hear them and I love responding.

Wishing you the best in all you do
