I am not going to give you a salesman pitch. I don’t have the salesman “gift”. I will give you the facts and my honest opinion. I was looking for a business, preferably an online business. I stumbled upon Wealthy Affiliate. If you want to be trained in how to grow a business then you need to continue reading.
How to start an online business
Wealthy Affiliate is an online “training” website in affiliate marketing. They offer a free starter membership that includes 2 free websites. Then if you like what you see you can sign up for the Premium package. At $49/month you will soon realize what an opportunity this is.
Affiliate marketing is very basic. See the picture below.
Here is a sample of one training post “Getting Rolling”
You build your website, attract visitors with:
- helpful interesting articles
- marketing your site on social media
- getting some affiliate links-ads in your material that will give you a commission. It is very easy to get these links: Staples, Amazon, Chapters/indigo etc. They are all more that willing to have you market their products.
- You get paid when someone purchases through the link on your site. The more articles you have the more links, more $$$
Wealthy Affiliate offers excellent training, support, videos etc etc.
This is a legitimate business opportunity or it can stay small and be a great hobby. It is not a get rich scheme. You need to be dedicated and put in some time. The success will come and you can make it what you want. As I said the entry membership starts with 2 websites. When you sign up for Premium you get 50!! Imagine the possibilities.

Ok I know the questions you are thinking:
- Its a scam!–Nope! It is a legit school that trains and supports
- I don’t have time!–Neither do I but you find time. I have 2 young kids, a wife and 2 jack russells. If I can find the time anyone can.
- I am not good with computers!–I type with 2 fingers and barely knew how to turn on the computer. Enough said
- What would my family and friends think?–So what. When you are at home full time working in your PJ’s who will have the last laugh?
- I won’t make money!–If you follow the training and are dedicated you will make money and be as successful as you want.
Lets finish this up. I’ve taken up enough of your time
This is a fantastic opportunity for anyone and any age. Try out the free membership if you don’t want to carry on, no problem. good luck to you. I bet you will be hooked and have a successful website and want the Premium membership. I will be with you for support all the way, so will Kyle the owner and also the 840,000 other members are always ready to answer a question. I believe this is the best way to make money online.
