What is WA ?
Why Should you sign up?
Lets take a closer look at what Wealthy Affiliate claims to be and see if it measures up to its claims.
The founders of Wealthy Affiliate are Kyle and Carson. Kyle is also the editor, moderator and tutor within the program. WA was launched in 2005. It is also known Wealthy Affiliate University.
There are already many reviews on the internet of Wealthy Affiliate so I am not going to repeat what has already been said but instead I will tell you my personal experience with WA.
I joined the WA community mid July of this year. I soon realised that the option to become a premium member was a good one and so I agreed to pay the $49 monthly.
As a free member you can only build 2 websites but as a premium you can build up to 50.
I am already building my 5th website and the other big plus is that you do not have to pay any extra for hosting of those websites. You buy the domain name then the site is yours and what you earn from it is all yours as well.
The first thing you will be asked when joining Wealthy Affiliate is to identify your financial goals. Some people will start with 6 figure incomes as their goals others will be more conservative. I like to be more conservative then I will not be disappointed..
Choose your Niche
WA will help you in the process of choosing a niche which fits with your interests or passions . There are well hundred of thousands of niches you can choose from, so it should not be too hard to find one that suits. Sit down and make a list of all your own interests and start with them Check to see which one are being searched for on Google, gather all the information you can about your niche and get rolling.
Build Your First Website
Building a website may seem daunting to newbies but believe me Wealthy Affiliate make it all so easy.
You walk through a series of lessons with Carson which progressively teach you all you need to know about how to build a website.
Sign up as a premium member to Wealthy Affiliate
Choose something you are passionate about or interested in. Choose a domain name for your website
Follow the lessons and do each day what is required till you have developed your website.
But they don’t stop there, they teach you how to get traffic to your website and how to get ranked on Google using relevant key words.
There is no point in having a website without having relevant traffic that will visit your site and purchase what you are promoting. WA encourage you to sign up to and become an affiliate to Jaaxy.
This is a very useful site which helps you to find those keywords relating to your theme which will attract relevant customers.
They also encourage and teach you how to engage with social media. The more avenues you can use to promote your site the more likely you are to find those people who share your interest and want what you have.
You are never alone on WA. There is a whole community of around 800,000 people within the system and they are all on the same journey. Some have been there for several years and others like you are newbies. But they all love to help you along the way. WA encourages its members to help one another and that’s what sets it apart from any other program . If you have a question you jsy have to ask and several people will respond with an answer. If you want a review or comment of your web site and some tips on how to move it forward you just have to put it out there and some one will help in a short time. You are never alone.
You will build friendships within the community and you will continue to learn from each other.
Surely this is the aim of every online business. It takes time. It is not gong to be there over night. You need to keep working to improve your site and your rankings on Google. You need to hang in there even when it seems lie nothing is happening, in the meantime enjoy the learning outcomes, employ them to continue improving your site. Start another site with all you have learned from the first. Engage with the WA community and offer feed back to others and they will gladly offer feed back to you. Remember getting engagement on your site will help with your rankings on Google.
My Sites Since Joining Wealthy Affiliate 3 moths ago
If you would like to take a look at some of my sites I will add links to them here.
Remember I am a 70 year old almost newbie so I am on a steep learning curve and I have learned an incredible amount in just 3 months on WA. I acknowledge that all of my sites need to be worked on some more but that will happen, it is a process.
Drones This site is about the use of drones in agriculture. My hubby and I are still actively farming so this really interests me. You can see some ads on the site, these are called affiliate links and it is how I will earn an income from the site.
Natures Healing Gifts My son had a bad motor bike accident and he has found more relief from alternative treatments than in the pharmaceutical ones. This prompted some research on my behalf to explore natures healing remedies rather than taking whatever the drug companies want you to take.
Property Last year my physical business burnt down and I lost everything. Years of hard work, all the business I had built up and the building and contents were all gone within a couple of hours. I was very depressed at first but then realised that I just had to pick myself up and get going again. This site was built primarily to try and promote the land which the lodge was on, now for sale.
Judys Online Business Education. This is the site I am working on now and in fact the same one you are on. I built this site to share some of my online experience which is still relatively limited. I did have a go at Empowernetwork but it turned out to be such a scam and the people behind it had little or no professionalism or integrity. Since joining WA I have learnt such a lot and now I am sharing it with you.
Plus 3 Shopify Stores; all with learning gained on WA.
https://just-elephants.com/ This one is focused on home decor and a few other things with an elephant theme. 10% of all revenue will go to WWF
https://for-tonight.com/ Features ladies nightwear, pyjamas and nighties..
and https://4granskids.com/ this site is one especially for grandmas to find a gift for their grand children that is not too expensive but still appropriate.
