Ready To Start an Online Business in 4 Easy Steps?

(1 month in)…I said to myself “I’ve actually got a plan to work from home and Wealthy Affiliate has provided me the learning tools and guidelines to establish my very own online business”

I know some of you were searching for a way to work from home if you managed to get here. I’m not here to lie or scam you, so I want to make this statement “there will be hard work and dedication required to make an online business work” If your not prepared for that…It’s fine! You have help! Most successful businesses are not created in a day and this scenario is no different.

You do not want to fall into another scam before reading what Wealthy Affiliate consist of and how it can benefit you right? Is this actually legit or not? Is a very logical assessment when you invest your time in anything. It is definitely LEGIT! Not a scam. I am so excited to recommend Wealthy Affiliate and definitely gets my stamp of approval…

My Online Experience

I fell for numerous scams throughout the years. I was drawn in by the quick get rich schemes claiming how easy it is to make money online. Over the years I have found out there is no such thing as getting rich quick without hard work (which is never quick). I had given up with an online income source at this point in my life.

12 years later I am looking to change that outlook by investing my own hard work and downtime specifically in finding an honest opportunity to make money online…

I came across this website that talks about Wealthy Affiliate. I read the whole review and even took a second glance over it again. I couldn’t believe what I was reading.

It is FREE. No credit card details are required. I was certainly intrigued. Usually, people will ask you for your financial details and give you a 30-day money back guarantee.

Wealthy Affiliate will give you a free membership FOREVER if you choose to. Of course, there will be an offer to upgrade to a premium membership. But a free membership was on the table, so I took it.

Free Membership Situation

I had the pleasure starting with Wealthy Affiliate on May 9th, 2016. There is really no reason to ignore a free opportunity. I completed my account profile and added a photo of myself. I would recommend you do the same. A completed profile attracts a lot more help in the community.

The minute I completed my profile, I was “immediately” greeted from members within the community. I really thought that it was an automated profile set up by Wealthy Affiliate. But it wasn’t. Greetings were given by actual members, not an automated message from Tom in Myspace welcoming me to the site that I never heard from again.

I was immediately directed to a Get Started Here course. It contains 10 modules. The modules will guide you from ground zero to having an actual website and easy platform called WordPress to work with.

You can also join the Affiliate Bootcamp course that brought me to this point. If you want to immediately make money as a free member, this is the step you should take. FYI, as a free member, your commission is only half compared to the premium members.

I was really amazed at what were given for FREE. Think about it.
Even if you have no computer experience, no college degree, or even a website. Wealthy Affiliate provides an opportunity to get started for free. You can start an online business in just a week with a couple of hours of hard work (I currently have a full-time job and family to provide for. It is not stopping me from growing an online business). This site is just one example.

 Premium Membership

I actually finished all the free courses that were provided and already had a website running. But I wanted more. I asked the members and they all directed me to Premium Member tools.

“Yep! There is a catch after all”, I thought to myself. “I have to pay now”. What if I don’t want to pay? They said it is OK. You can stay as a free member forever and they still provide help?

But I really wanted to learn more. I wanted to use all the features that are provided inside the Premium Membership.

Wealthy Affiliate offers you a huge discount for your first month of membership during the first 7 days you joined as a Free member. If you become a Premium Member during this period, you only pay $19 instead of $47.

I thought for a second, “I spend more for a family meal daily and I can certainly afford to invest that amount for a month towards a future business with potential to provide an online income”. So I upgraded to Premium at the end of the 7 days. I am skeptical by nature after all. As I stated I put my time and money into previous online make money situations.

I am pleasantly surprised with my experience. Now I can use all the features provided. I can continue my lessons. There are 4 more courses with 10 modules on each course.

After the first month ended. I already upgraded to the yearly premium membership. It saves almost 36% which works out to about $29 monthly instead of the $47 monthly cost.

 My Results

I really do hope that you do not have Get Rich Quick attitude. That has failed in the past right? Any legitimate business will take years of sweat, blood, and energy to build. Wealthy Affiliate is not a scam. So you will have to build your business and expect results like any other legitimate business.

The reason why I said Wealthy Affiliate is LEGIT. Simply from my experience thus far is my progress in learning. I have recently applied my knowledge of creating a website alone to help build a website for a Co-Workers band! My first reaction was to send them directly to Wealthy Affiliate and explained to them how simple it is to build a website. Turns out some people are just more inclined to say what if I pay you to build me a website?

Check out my First Sale

Building a website for $150! With reoccurring fees to continually upgrade their Tour Dates, Blogs, and Content, all of which they brought up in our conversation.

Did I ask myself why? The reason was simple. “I stare at a computer all day at work and the last thing I want to do is go home to work on a website”.

This outlook alone was crazy to acknowledge, but it gave me an insight on making additional income by helping out people I come across who do not want to spend time working on a website.

Although that is just my first sale outside of Wealthy Affiliate. I have noticed my site health growing day by day as I add more content. I have run into other results within Wealthy Affiliate, which you will see if you join the community.

Success stories from $5,000 a month, some less and some more. One thing I’ve noticed is the success always differs. I believe in the knowledge provided within Wealthy Affiliate and it has helped me grow as an individual with the community interaction alone.

How can you discount their success stories and not take a free look into an honest business opportunity? By the way, this is your business, so you are investing in yourself! You don’t have anything to lose!

What is Wealthy Affiliate?

I can safely say that Wealthy Affiliate is a HUGE group of people learning and helping each other to build a successful online business. Experts and Newbies are there exchanging information, lessons, tips, and tricks. They are really making money online and reserve nothing when helping each other.

It is a big community. I consider… it MENTORS of KNOWLEDGE.

Kyle and Carson, the founder and co-founder of Wealthy Affiliate, are readily available. You can reach out to them. Ask them questions. They will reply you. Due to their busy schedules, there might be a delayed reply, but they will reply you. A personal reply. Not some computer generated replies.

Wealthy Affiliate Pros and Cons

Wealthy Affiliate Positives:

      • NO CREDIT CARD details. It is totally free to join and explore.
      • NO SOFTWARE DOWNLOAD / INSTALL. You just use it immediately. Just like Twitter, Facebook, and Google. You can access it with all kind of gadgets; PC, Mac, tablets, and smartphones.
      • NO PRESSURE to act now. You are given a free forever membership.
      • Learn at your own pace.
      • The courses are task-based. You will be given tasks to complete. This is to apply what you have just learned from the course.

      • You are surrounded with like minded people. This will help you to focus on your goal.
      • You can ask successful Internet Marketers and Bloggers. They are more than willing to help you.

Wealthy Affiliate Negatives:

      • Too much information that can be overwhelming to a total newbie. I was paralyzed by it, to tell you the truth. I needed to calm my overloaded brain. (The information alone is more than a “get what you paid for scenario” it is very extensive).
      • The community is so heart warming. Members are exchanging greetings and information all the time. You may lose track of time while engaging conversations inside WA, forgetting to study and progress your business. (I really don’t consider this to be negative as every encounter is informative). I have actually been here for the last few weeks and the social aspect is endearing. It creates a new perspective on your own business and how you can apply some of the knowledge you come across overall if you change your outlook.

Benefits simply outweigh the cons.

  1. I like that your website is easy to read. The points are clearly presented as well. Good choice of template. In terms of the content, it is informative. I would like to add other the other perks of WA: for example, you can host your websites here and get instant support. This is particularly useful for beginners like myself. Keep up the good work!

    • Hi Lily,

      I really believe in what is taught at WA! I treated the simplicity of my website based on how I would like to read content. Clear, to the point, with a bit of self discovery. Great emphasis on the website support! I really believe the support system could take up an entire review on how amazing it is alone. For that specific reason I tried to keep it bare bones in a way.

      Mainly, because I want people who read my review to discover how great Wealthy Affiliate is. The same way I did when I stumbled upon the site. “Give me a candle and I’ll learn how to light the fire” I feel you definitely have to be passionate about what your accomplishing. Simply put, I want people to leave my site informed and decide when they need to light the fire.

      With WA as my backbone foundation, my creativity can flow in any direction. It opens up a business opportunity with not just one door, but multiple doors that you as the creator get to choose to take.

      Appreciate your time and comment! Hope you’ll stop back by as my website progresses with more content,
