Becoming a Wealthy Affiliate: Day 1

About a little less then a year ago (give or take some) I had found something that sounded too good to be true. A program that depicted the idea of being “too good to be true” like the late night infomercials you see on TV. That (at the time) strange find was a program called Wealthy Affiliate.

I found it weird because of the amount of success stories, yet I remained a bit skeptic. Everyone has their own skepticism level and mines was flashing “Red Alert” above my head. Now 1 year (or so) later, I’m taking the challenge on.

To knockout the sole question at hand right now, Wealthy Affiliate is like an online affiliate marketing classroom. Its designed to help you build your foundation (if not the entire base) to learning the world of internet marketing. Various topics are covered including article marketing, pay per click advertising and numerous other methods of helping you to succeed in internet marketing.

In a nutshell, its your guide to making some extra income from the comfort of your home. With that being said, I’ve started the “Becoming a Wealthy Affiliate” series. I’ve paid the $30 dollar monthly recurring due for this month and will keep track in this series over the next month.

Becoming a Wealthy Affiliate: Day 1

Although in actuality I haven’t been with the Wealthy Affiliate program for a full day, I have began to learn a bit. Understand one thing when joining Wealthy Affiliate, you’ll be in for some major information overload for the first week! There is so much information and resources that its hard to define where to start at. Although Kyle and Carson (the creators of Wealthy Affiliate and successful affiliates themselves) have a “Getting Started” section, its still a bit much to contain.

It took me almost 15 minutes to get setup but around 30-35 minutes to get the understanding of how things worked and where to begin. Even at the end of the “Intro” I was still a bit puzzled as to where to start. So I started where the 2 recommended, reading “Week 1″ of their “8 Week Action Plan” that they offer. It discussed many topics and helped lay the blueprint for correctly getting started.

I think that should sum it up just about, but here is a few of the wonderful features that they offer, all in a nutshell (again) of course.

WA Spaces:

You’ve heard of MySpace, Facebook, etc. What is the connection between them all? They are social networks that allow for you to send other members personal messages, view their photos and even add them as a buddy. Wealthy Affiliate offers the power of social networking with their own personal “WA Spaces” feature. Connect with other members, network with them and learn their methods of how they are becoming successful online.

Unmatched Forum Support:

The one thing that I like about Wealthy Affiliate is that they are a close-knit community. That sounds just about right assuming WA’s mission is to help each other to become successful and it doesn’t get any better then having someone hold your hand in the forum. The other thing I find quite interesting is that the creators, Kyle and Carson, are both active on the forums and go through many obstacles to help you become successful. How do they do that?

They are their for one-on-one support. If you have a question or concern about internet marketing or if your stuck at a certain point, they’ll help break you free. Both Kyle and Carson are there to help you in your online money making endeavors.

Keyword Research:

In order to receive proper indexing into major search engines or even exposing your pages to more traffic, you need to research and build a keyword base. Wealthy Affiliate helps you build your online money making foundation by providing you with a keyword research tool at NO ADDITIONAL COST! So save your money from Wordtracker and/or Keyword Discovery and use the power of this great tool to the fullest extent.

And remember, if your not sure how to use it or what to do, Kyle and Carson are but a click away :)

Pre-Made Keyword Lists:

Don’t know how to generate keywords or just want to capture a few useful keyword, then the keyword lists are for you? Kyle and Carson provides you with the most strategic keywords that have made them successful. And best of all, like every other feature available on Wealthy Affiliate, its FREE! You can use these in your article marketing or your PPC campaigns.

The keyword lists are available by in XLS (Excel) and TXT (Notepad) formats. In either manner, your sure to be successful by using some of the keywords provided.

So before you ask, are there ANY con’s about WA? My answer is no, or at least nothing major. Only flaw I see with it is that the grammar is a tiny bit bad. It sometimes requires you to read a specific sentence once or twice to get a better understanding but hey, nothing in life is easy to learn. And if your serious, you’d be willing to read it as many times as it takes to get it down.

But the bottom line is this, the features and the opportunity to making money online with Wealthy Affiliate exceeds some small grammar issues. Trust me, there are over AT LEAST 20-25 other features including ClickBank Research, Keyword Competition Spy, $500 Challenge, WA Jobs, etc.

What to Expect in the Wealthy Affiliate Series?

My goal in this series is to let everyone follow me on my path to becoming a true successful internet marketer. I’ve already set a earnings goal of $1,500 in my first month of using the service. My path to online money making is just getting started but the question is, will it be a paved road at the end of the travel?

Keep watching, I’m going to keep studying and I will make another post in a few days (sometimes this weekend to be exact) to keep you up with my progress. If your interested in joining Wealthy Affiliate and become an online money making genius, then click the banner at the top of this blog to get started. I wish you the best of luck in your adventure to become a “wealthy affiliate.”
