This is a Wealthy Affiliate overview. Though an overview tends to be a short treatment on a particular topic, this will be a Series about an outstanding educational opoortunity designed to develop the entrepreneur inside of you. Unlike other training programs, including compulsory public education and institutions of higher learning, you will be taught the fundamentals of entrepreneurship, and not how to be a well-rounded consumer or employee. We begin…
What Is Wealthy Affiliate?
Wealthy Affiliate is a fully-equipped membership-based authority website and training platform on how to build and maintain an affiliate marketing based business.
Two college students, known as “the wealthy affiliates,” Kyle and Carson, in Vancouver, Canada, cracked the affiliate marketing code and sought to show others how to do it…
Wealthy Affiliate started out as a keyword list site, one more of many that were around on the Internet at the time of its official founding on September 10, 2005. The membership-based website has seen unprecedented success since it’s opening, steadily increasing in size, membership, features and benefits. As with many other training sites of this calibre, stagnation has never been an issue.
A brief history of Wealthy Affiliate can be read HERE.
Today, the membership can still be had at original 2005 pricing, which figures out at $29 USD per month when paying a yearly subscription.
The online business training membership specializes in affiliate marketing, an extremely viable business model which has made many average people wealthy when implementing the instructions found in the training materials. The success rate at Wealthy Affiliate is generally higher than that of any other training opportunity available to this day on the Web. there are a number of reasons why this is so. This article will cover these in the next section.
Like any other reputable business, work and sheer effort is required to achieve desired results. Wealthy Affiliate provides the necesssary tools and features under one roof to help its community of like-minded members achieve their business goals.
To this day, and for many years at this point, Wealthy Affiliate has taken the lead in the industry of affiliate marketing training, taking the Internet by storm and doing so with excellence. Wealthy Affiliate is a legacy of our time, in ways that have never been rivaled.
What Makes Wealthy Affiliate Unique?
There are a number of attributes about Wealthy Affiliate that sets it apart from any of the top affiliate marketing business training platforms, courses and programs available then and now.
Pay It Forward Philosophy
At a time when the real elements that bring about real success were guarded secrets, the one thing Kyle and Carson did right, and that nobody else was doing was to “lay it all out on the table.” This attitude, out of anything else, started a phenomenon that made them loved amongst their membership community, right from the very start. This caring attitude still exists at Wealthy Affiliate today and still makes the membership website unique to any other.
No need for hype and unreasonable expectation in marketing and selling techniques found in any of the promotional campaigns done by the duo. You will not find anything besides what truly is at Wealthy Affiliate and what to expect, on the sales website. There are no promises in fact, personal success depends on the efforts by each member on what they do in their business campaigns and how they use the Wealthy Affiliate Platform. You will not find hype, flaunting of wealth, glitter, glamour, fluff, promises of great wealth, expensive cars, elegant mansions, balmy beaches and hammocks, nor any other sales gimmicks found in Wealthy Affiliate advertising. You will however find factual information about what Wealthy Affiliate is and what it does, and no more.
Why Wealthy Affiliate Is the Best Choice
Unlike most other training programs that teach affiliate marketing, Wealthy Affiliate gives it all to you – upon paying the subscription – you get a fully functional platform and there are no levels involved here, each requiring more money to unlock.
Unfortunately, this is a popular trend amongst most programs, even those that are second best to Wealthy Affliate. Wealthy Affilate does not require more payment beyond joining the premium membership (Wealthy Affiliate has a free starter membership for the purpose of show-casing what’s inside.) Once inside, there is no reason to pay to get support, higher level of training, tools, services, outside of normal costs, such as domin registration, which you would pay for anyway anwhere else. Jaaxy, Kyle and Carson’s superior keyword research suite does come with higher levels which must be purchased, but they do provide a highly effective free version of the program accessible to every premium member.
Trouble with your website installations? Stuck on anything concerning training, technology, search engine optimization and any other aspect of your business, campaigns, any of the tools or services provided, article writing, WordPress, you will find ample support usually with minutes and from a variety of support levels ranging from tutorials, to community support to actual support from the owners themselves which leads to…
Owners Who Care for Their Members
Unlike virtually any other program teaching affiliate marketing, you do not get the benefit of one-on-one with the owners. This benefit has always been a part of Wealthy Affiliate, even in the beginning when the membership site was a mere keyword list website. It’s the very thing that made Wealthy Affiliate successful. It’s the very thing that left many members with their own online empires and full-time recurring incomes!
Is Wealthy Affiliate a Scam?
Upon reading this article, one might be tempted to deduce that something like this is just too good to be true, that there must be a catch to this.
You need to see for yourself. The only negative reports about Wealthy Affiliate come from folks who expected to get rich overnight, doing no work and pushing a mouse button two or three times.
Very often, without researching, without looking into stuff some people have gripes about, they jump right into shooting first and then asking questions.
When I first found Wealthy Affiliate in 2008, I found it hard to believe what I was seeing back then. I read the material over and over again and all I could do at that point is wish I could join. At the time, Wealthy Affiliate didn’t have a trail membership. However the time came when I ould finally join. Later that year (2010) a free trial membership program was released.
The rest of this Series is going to take you through all the different facets found at Wealthy Affiliate as of 2018, the year in which this was written. I intend to leave no stone unturned. This will result in quite a long round of articles. Kyle and Carson has continued to add to, improve upon and update the Wealthy Affiliate Platform since the days of being a keyword list site with the added Pay-It-Forward environment, both put into practice and taught as well.
At Wealthy Affiliate, you will be taught how to earn trust from your clients and customers. Unlike alll the other training programs out there, you will NOT be taught how to view your cliets and customers as fish to be caught, and bait to be cast in front of them! That is popular amongst most marketers but I guarantee you – putting that aside and resisting the temptation to use such marketing tactics will put you ahead of the rest!
