After many years of stumbling around trying to figure out how to make money online,  I finally got serious.  That is when I found Wealthy Affiliate.

What is Wealthy Affiliate?

Affiliate marketing is the promotion/marketing of other peoples products.

Wealthy Affiliate is an affiliate marketing training system.  What that means is that it is a system that teaches you how to make money online using affiliate marketing.

What impressed me about the training is that it is presented in a logical order.  Each lesson builds on the previous lesson and is presented in a mixture of video and written instruction.  In each video you are shown step by step what to do.  In effect you are looking over the shoulder of the instructor.

Best of all,  it is FREE.

Yes,  there is an optional Premium upgrade.  However,  it is possible to learn the basics without having to pay anything at all.

What do you get for FREE?

With the FREE membership,  which is called a Starter membership,  you get 2 free websites and access to the basic level of instruction.

With this instruction,  you will be guided through:
– understanding how to make money online
– choosing a niche
– the initial setup of your own website
– getting your site ready for SEO
– finding content ideas from keywords
– understanding website pages
– creating your first 3 pages
– creating quality content

During your first 7 days you have access  to the full site,  including the chat function.

After the first 7 days,  you still have access to:
– your 2 free websites
– the basic level of instruction,  and
– the search feature

What is the Premium membership?

The Premium membership is the membership level you would pay for.

With the Premium membership,  you would have full access to all training and chat functions.

The advantage of the Premium membership is the ability to ask questions and to interact with other members.

This is especially helpful for those times when you do not fully understand something.

This is available 24/7.  However,  being membership driven,  replies may come almost immediately,  or they may come a few hours later.  It all depends on who in the world is on the site at any given time.

Is it worth it?

It depends on what you want.

If you want to learn a bit more about making money online through affiliate marketing — YES.  Take advantage of the FREE starter membership. Click Here to check it out.

If you want to be spoon feed — NO.  This is self study and you can only learn by doing.
