What Is The Truth About Wealthy Affiliate

The fastest growing platform for business these days is the internet. More and more entrepreneurs are choosing to launch their businesses online rather than brick and mortar. There are several reasons for that. The major reason seems to be money. It usually takes less output of money to establish and build an online business that it does to rent a building and stock it with inventory and then wait for sometimes years to recoup the investment.

One of the most used platforms or programs used to begin an internet business is one called Wealthy Affiliate. You may be among many who want to know “What is the truth about Wealthy Affiliate and the program they promote?” That is what this review is about.

What is Wealthy Affiliate

Wealthy Affiliate is not necessarily a product that you purchase and download it to your computer and then it builds you a business. It is not a website that you own. It is not a business, per se, in that you buy all the parts and put it online and it brings you an income. Wealthy Affiliate is not the name of your business that you build online.

Wealthy Affiliate is a comprehensive guide and tools by which anyone can establish and build an online business and make money. It provides a comprehensive library of lessons, videos and articles which number in the thousands which address just about anything that you would need to know to be able to succeed in an online business.

It should not be construed that because the word “affiliate” appears in the name, that it is the only platform or approach that can be learned at Wealthy Affiliate. You can develop any type of online business that you may prefer. You can find the tutorials and the lessons which will take you in any direction you desire.

Wealthy Affiliate is also a community of like-minded people who want to build an online business just as you do. Among all these you will find some who have done it for years and are very successful and then you will find some who are new at it and are learning and growing in the knowledge of online business.

One of the best aspects of Wealthy Affiliate is the support that it offers. If you ever have a problem that you cannot find the answer to in your lessons, you can ask the support team and get an answer, usually within minutes. I have experienced getting answers to questions which with other programs would take 24 to 48 hours, but with Wealthy Affiliates, it only took 15 minutes. The support is phenomenal.

Wealthy Affiliate does not promise you that you will succeed. However, they will promise you that if you are patient and persistent in your application of the program to your business that you will attain some level of success. Of course, the level you achieve will up to the investment of your time and energy.


Money Investment

How much do you have to invest? That is a pertinent question. There are many programs out there that are similar to Wealthy Affiliate which will gladly charge you thousands of dollars for the training and tools and support that you get through Wealthy Affiliate. I shall not say that what they sell you is not worth what they charge, but I can say that I tried a few of them and when all was said and done, I did not receive anything of lasting value.

What I can say about my investment with Wealthy Affiliate is that in the past year I have invested 1/20th of what I had invested in other programs and have begun to see a return on that investment, whereas I never got a return on the other programs that I tried. With Wealthy Affiliate that return is continuing to grow. As I grow in knowledge and development of my business, so will the income that is generated.

How much is that investment? Well, to begin, it is only your time. You can begin with a Free Membership. But, if you decide to move up to a Premium Membership, you can have access to all the tools and programs and teaching resources that are available to Wealth Affiliate Premium Members. That is the only level of membership that there is. You will not have to pay more to get a better membership.

What is the cost? The cost for a Premium Membership is $49 a month. You may wonder if that is reasonable. Once you see what all you get for that fee, you will come to realize that to purchase all these tools and support separately would cost you hundreds, if not thousands of dollars a month.

Time Investment

The time that you invest in your internet business will be the one thing that brings great returns. You will first spend time learning from the vast library of lessons that are in Wealthy Affiliate. It is structured in a way that keeps you on track so that you will always know how far you have gone and where you will pick up on your next lesson.

There is a systematic approach to your teaching so that you build on that which you have already learned. It is easy to do a quick refresh of a previous lesson if needed before going on to the next.

You will learn how to build and maintain and grow the website for your online business. You will have access to building 25 websites for free through Wealthy Affiliates. In addition, Wealthy Affiliates will host twenty-five more domains for free that you may own or purchase.

The building of your online business will take a while, but with patience and persistence along with consistency your business will grow and succeed. It may take six months or even a year, but you will succeed by persevering.

What is the truth about Wealthy Affiliate

As you can read, my assessment of Wealthy Affiliate is that it is the best program on the internet for beginning and building your own online business. If you enjoy learning and are a creative person then the Wealthy Affiliate program is the perfect fit for you to build your own internet business. It will not be an overnight thing, but it will be the kind of business that will continue to grow and give you an income for years to come.

I Need Help to Start My Own Business-How to Start an Internet Business

If you have a creative personality and have decided that you want to put it to use by starting your own internet business, then you have come to the right place. In the beginning we all need a little help, if not a lot of help, when we start to look at building and internet business. If you are like I was you may have just enough knowledge to make a lot of mistakes because you believe everything out there about building your own internet business.

Let me help

Let me help you.
Do you need some help?

The first thing I can help you with is this: Don’t believe everything you read about building an internet business. No promoter is going to tell you up front that they are going to take advantage of you. Now, when I began I did not know that. So, needless to say, I fell for several scams that took my money but gave me little in return. The main thing they gave me was debt which I must pay. so, do not believe everything they tell you about their product.

If you are interested in a particular product, ask them how much they will allow you to test their product before you must commit to purchasing it. If they insist on upfront payment, that is a good sign that you probably should look elsewhere.

If the promoter reduces the original price drastically in an effort to get you into the program, that is another red flag that you should not ignore. Once in the program you will find out that you will have to spend more and more money if you wish to get all the benefits of their product. In the end this will amount to thousands of dollars and you will be none the better for it nor will you have a money making enterprise.

If the promoter promises you a ready built website with all the products ready to sell, stop and think. What good is a beautiful website if you can not attract traffic to it? What good is a website if you do not know how to update and maintain it and add products as you see fit? What good is a website if you do not have suppliers of products and know how to connect with them to get new products? What good is a beautiful site if you do not know how to accept payments and make payments or returns? Just having a website is not enough.

How much do you know?
Learning what you need to know

What you need to know

So, what do you need to know. One thing that you will need to know is what goes into building your own business website. Not that you have to know machine language or javascript or all the other languages that are used in computer lingo. But it will help to have a little background knowledge of what is going on as far as the structure of your website.

Most, but not all, business websites use what is called WordPress as the platform for their business website. Just about every business website that you may interact with is built on a WordPress theme. Being familiar with how the WordPress platform is set up will help you in understanding how your website is developed.

There are many trained people who are more than happy to aid you in building a WordPress business website. If you have the money to afford them they will probably do a fine job in building you a business website. However, you will still have a pretty steep learning curve before you will be able to run your business website efficiently. You may find yourself spending more money to learn more things. But if you have the money, that is fine.

What if you don’t have lots of money?

Some people have lots of money.
Do you have money to throw away?

If you are like I was, you may have a little money but not thousands of dollars to spend on building a website and then spending more to get traffic and even more to be able to maintain and build the online business, you might consider one of the programs that teach you how to build your own internet business and website. The types of these businesses vary from price range to product range and even more.

Some prefer the storefront approach. They emphasize products of varying types. Typically it is a niche product. These products sites may vary from toothpicks to ATV’s to musical instruments and more. Others may sell intellectual products in the form of information to help in almost any area of knowledge growth.

Still, others are focused on what is called Affiliate Marketing. This is the type of online business that is usually built on the structure of a website that is a blog. Blogs are articles written on given subjects and through people reading the blog they may be directed to certain products that relate to the blog. Contained on the blog site are links to the related products. If the reader clicks on the link they are directed to the products website.

If the reader makes a purchase of a product, the product business will give a commission to the blogger for directing the buyer to their site. This is one of the favorite of online business entrepreneurs. Once the link is incorporated in the blog it will be viable for as long as the business exists. Some affiliate marketers are still making money off of links which are years old.

My recommendation

If you are just beginning, do not have a lot of money, and need to gain some knowledge about internet business, then affiliate marketing is probably the entry point for you. However, in the affiliate marketing arena there are many scams that are ready to take your money.

There are many that will take your money and promise you the sky. They will tell you that you will make fast money, in just days or weeks. DO NOT BELIEVE IT! There is no affiliate marketing program that can make you BIG money in just a few weeks. Any business that is worth its salt must be built on a solid foundation of knowledge and work. That will take time. Some will take a little less and some a little more. It will be determined what level of knowledge you have to start and how much time you have to invest as you grow your business. It will grow in proportion to the time and effort you invest. But it will grow.

Be an Entrepreneur-Start Your Own Business Today

Have you ever wanted to have your own business? Do you want to be an entrepreneur and build your own business? Learn how to build your own business and be your own boss. You have come to the right place. Today you begin an exciting adventure of building your own business. You are becoming your own boss and you will determine how much you will make. The sky is the limit!

Let’s Begin

To begin a business you must first determine what you are interested in. Of course, we all are interested in making money, that is understood. But, in order to do that we must do something that we are truly interested in. So, the first thing we must do is find a subject that we are not only interested in but are passionate about. You might think that the area that you are passionate about would not make for a very good business platform. But you would probably be wrong. There are literally thousands of things to build your business around.

Did you know that there are people who have built online businesses that promote clothes pins and others that promote tooth picks. They actually make good money with their online business. So, go ahead and decide what you are really passionate about and then begin to be creative in what your business might be.

You may be wondering why I ask you to think of something that you are passionate about? If you are passionate about something you probably know something about it, or a lot about it. You will find out that to build a business on line you need to share your knowledge with other people. This is usually done through “blogging”. That is a term used on the internet to denote an article or an archive of articles focused on a given subject. As you share your knowledge and gain a following people will begin to trust you and will be glad to receive your advice in things to purchase and where to purchase them. This will take a little time.

Your time line

Some people who promote building online businesses feed you the line that it is an easy thing and will only take a few minutes every day. Then in just days or weeks you will have money flowing in. THAT IS A LIE! An online business is just like any other business. What you get out is proportionate to what you put in. In any good business when you put 10% in you expect 20% in return. The same is true in an online venture.

The advantage is that you get to choose when you put the time in. You can still keep your day job and build your online business by investing an hour or two each day or five or ten hours on the weekend. It may take a few months or even a year or so, depending on the time invested, but it will pay great returns as you are diligent in developing your website and business.

If you are consistent and patient you can probably quit your day job within a year or at the most two years and devote full time to your online business. Then you will begin to enjoy all the benefits of owning your own business and being your own boss.

Where to begin

All this sounds good, I’m sure. But where do you find the tools and the knowledge to bring it about?

There are many people out there on the internet that will gladly take advantage of your lack of knowledge. I encourage you not to spend any of your money unless you can first test drive any program that you might find interesting. Any program that will be of any good to you in building your business will gladly offer you a free trial version. These come in a couple of ways. Some offer you a 30 or 60 or 90 day free trial, but they want you to register a credit card with them. At the end of the trial period they will automatically charge the card and begin your paid membership without any notice to you.

Others will charge you either a partial or a full price for the product and say that they will issue a credit if you decide not to do the program. In those cases it is best to use a credit card, not a debit card.

But, be aware that there are many more scammers out there than there are true products to help you build your business.

My recommendation

Because I experienced a couple of the bad promotions that took advantage of my lack of knowledge I learned the hard way what to avoid. After being taken advantage of several times I finally found the right platform to build my own online business.

This platform did not, and does not, make any bold promises but presents the facts and the possibilities and then lets you make your own decision. You will find not 8 or 10 or 20 testimonies but you will be exposed to thousands of people who have used the program and continue to use it and put into practice all the tools made available to them. You can read testimonies of people who tried other products and who have tried this product. You will see that through persistence and patience success is a normal outcome.

This program surrounds you with like-minded people who desire the same things that you do and they are willing to help you and encourage you all along the way. You will become a member of the community.

Best Affiliate Programs High Commission

The Best Affiliate Programs High Commission

In today’s highly competitive affiliate programs it is hard to determine what the best affiliate programs with high commission are. In this blog we shall take a look at some of the angles to consider.

What are affiliate programs?

For those who are not familiar with affiliate programs, they are a means by which a company that produces a product will pay a portion of the sale price of that product to someone who through whatever means advertises and points a buyer to that product. The affiliate uses a blog or a campaign or social media to advertise the product and then gives a link by which the customer can go to the company site that is selling the product. Upon the purchase of the product the affiliate is awarded and agreed upon percentage of the sale price.

How to determine high commission

Should high commission be determined by percentage alone? One must weigh a couple of factors to see if percentage should be the determining factor. Suppose a product sells for $10.00 with a 75% commission. That would be $7.50 commission on each sale. But what if sales of that product are rare. The high commission would not mean very much. Suppose there are lots of sales but there are lots of affiliates pitching the product. Individual affiliate sales may be scarce and thereby the high commission does not mean as much income.

Let’s suppose another product sells for $1200.00 and pays only 20% commission. One would have to get commissions on the sale of 32 of the first item to equal the commission of one sale of the second. In this case the lower percentage is the higher commission.

You might say that that is not a fair comparison. You might argue that a lot more people can afford the $10.00 product. But there in is the crux of the matter. Because more people can afford it there are more affiliates pushing it. On the other hand there are fewer customers who can afford the higher priced product. In like manner there will probably be fewer affiliates marketing the product. The answer may lie in whether you want to make money competing with many affiliates on a high percentage lower priced product or whether you wish to make money competing with fewer affiliates for fewer customers with same amount of profit.

Not percentage alone

So, when considering an affiliate program, percentage should never be the only factor. Yes, consider percentage, but look at the demand for any particular product. Is there a niche that will produce great demand for the product? If you determine that there is such a niche, then no matter if the commission is high or low it should be a good product to promote. If you determine that there is a demand but that there are an abundance of affiliates promoting it, you may decide that your time could be put to better use in another area. Nevertheless, if you think that you can bring in some cash flow, though minimal, then something is better than nothing if it does not take up more time than it is worth.

If you can find a product that pays more than just a onetime payment, that is, it continues to pay on a monthly or yearly basis, then even a low percentage commission becomes a better paying onetime high commission. There are many such programs out there and it is worth the time to search them out and then decide which niches fit you best.

If you plan to be established as an affiliate marketer and make a steady and even sometimes lavish income, know for certain that you need to lay a good foundation of work and consistency of production. With this established you not have to be concerned with best affiliate programs high commission ratings. Your income will be consistent and growing and it will keep on growing as long as you wish to put in the effort.

A Personal Note

I was like so many people who set out to make money on the internet. I probably fell for more scams than the average seeker would. And it cost me dearly. It may not have been as bad as some. I have heard and talked to some who spent tens of thousands of dollars hoping to make it big on the internet with minimal effort. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Several times I found that out the hard way.

But, “Praise God”, I have found a way that is founded on the principle of whatever you get out is directly proportional to what you put in. The optimum word here is “proportional”. In other words this is stating that the results you receive will be a multiple of the work you put in. It is built on the Biblical principle of planting and harvesting. If you plant no seeds, you get no crop. The more seeds you plant, the bigger the crop.

Begin to plant your crop and plan for a harvest

The particular program I am talking about is called Wealthy Affiliates. I think that it is so appropriate that they begin on a Biblical basis by “speaking those things which are not as though they were.” That quotation is from the Bible and it is a description of our Creator. So when you become a part of this program you begin your journey by declaring yourself a “Wealthy Affiliate”. But that is only the beginning. If you choose to continue you will find that these folks really want you to succeed. They have a program well laid out that will take us average folks a couple to three months to complete. And then continuing education is part of the program.

There are no “get rich quick” schemes. There is just steady growth in knowledge and practice. It is a community of thousands who have and are participating in the program continually encouraging and adding information to the group.

Wealthy Affiliates

These people are so not pushy. They want you to succeed so much that they will allow you to have a free membership. Yes, it is limited but not the way you might imagine. In most programs they allow you a certain number of days to use it free and then you must make a decision to purchase the product and all the add-ons. At Wealthy Affiliates you can stay on the free program as long as you like. You will have limited access to certain parts of the program. But how many programs allow you to have two free websites and give you ten free lessons on developing a website and beginning to blog. I do not know of any. I was planning to just use the free part when I started, but was so impressed by the content and knowledge that I gained that I decided to join the monthly pay membership. You might think that $49 a month is a lot(it is not). But consider this: you have access to all the training programs; you have free listing of 25 site.rubix websites and hosting of 25 other domain sites. That is in addition to many other amenities.

How about: Free keyword searches and ratings; templates to help you in getting the best results for your postings; how to build websites; technical support; feedback from fellow affiliates; webinars and updates; help in determining keywords and niches; live chat: and technical support that actually supports you.

Now, in the past I contracted with some folks that implied that they would do the things that I stated above. The price that they wanted for their service was upwards of $10,000. It would take many years of $49 a month to equal that amount. As I look at $49 a month I think, “What a great deal!”

Another advantage is that if you decide not to continue at anytime, just stop paying the $49 a month. You still keep the knowledge that you have gained. But you do lose access to a lot of good tools. Any way you go, you will be a much better online entrepreneur.
