There was a time when I had no idea what made the internet work. I’m betting you were there once too. So, let’s have a discussion about what creates a successful website.
It doesn’t matter what kind of website you have. It could be a storefront or a blog about your favorite pet. The object of the website is getting it in front of people. If people can’t find it, it could be giving away free money and it would not be successful.
There are a few ways you could get it noticed. One way that people frequently try to promote their website is to advertise. And I am not saying advertising is not a good idea – it is always a good idea to get the info out there in front of people.
The great thing about the internet is it allows us a way to work smarter, not harder. So anything you can do to promote your site is a good thing.
Let’s think about the differences between traditional business and business on the world-wide-web. What’s different about the two?
It’s All About The Audience
Traditional business, unless you are a huge international business, you deal fairly local and buying ads and passing out business cards, putting your name in the ‘yellow pages’ works well.
The audience has changed with the technology of the ‘web’. Life has evolved and we must evolve with it – if we want to stay competitive and successful. Business is now worldwide.
Put The Ad In The Site
Use to be getting folks to your business meant they would be pulling up into a parking lot and walking into a physical building. Today, we don’t have to park and walk in. We are on the internet, on our phone, our IPads and iPods, our Androids and iPhones. Technology is the advertisement.
Let Me Explain
A business card would say a little blurb, state the phone number and a physical address so you would be able to find it. With business on a website, the information is similar, however, it directs us to a different place. The address is called a URL and it is the ‘address’ for the website (business), you would like to visit.
From Yellow Pages To Web pages
In order to get noticed on the internet, you type in an address or URL that will bring up a website and if you got it right, it will be what you are looking for. The internet is driven by search engines. Everything you input goes through a search and brings up options for you to choose from.
Options are pages of addresses of businesses. The URL or address is also called a ‘link’. You click the link and a website opens up for you to view. I know this all sounds so complicated. I suppose if you know nothing about it, it is a complex tapestry of information to unravel.
Let Me Explain The Search Process
We have an idea of what we are looking for. We are not sure exactly what to search so we try to think of things that we could put in that little search box that might bring up options for us to choose from or bring us closer to what we are looking for.
Say we want a new set of snow skis. We type ‘downhill ski’s’ into the search field and hit enter. All of a sudden pages and pages of businesses related to downhill ski’s floods our screen. That is because all those links that have appeared used the words ‘downhill ski’s’ somewhere in the description of their website. All the pages that did not come up – that are related to downhill skis did not use those exact words anywhere on their site. As this is merely an example, I am sure any business having something to do with downhill ski’s would use those words.
Oh My God! There Must Be A Million!
The first thing I would like to say is that because the first one is in the first position does not mean it is the best choice. It means that the search term used brought up that site. It may be a highly visited website and they may be the best choice, but simply coming up on the first page at the top of this page has no significance as to the success of the site. I might even be that the position is a paid position. These links are options and you must still visit them to determine which one is the best website for you.
Armed With Knowledge
Having a better idea of how we move around on the internet gives us an idea of how we can ‘program’ our website to get people to our webpages. These words we use for searches are called ‘keywords’. Some people call them ‘meta tags’.
As a business online, we are now webpage designers. As such, we must know how to create these ‘keywords’ that give our website a competitive edge. We are competing with millions of businesses now instead of the family store around the corner. We compete with businesses in Austrailia and Canada, Germany and Britian and Mexico. We are global now – not local.
Being Armed with the right set of tools is imparitive even more today as our competition is global.
There are millions of ‘tools’ available out there to use. And I am sure many of them are quite good at what they do for you. As a business person on the world-wide-web, I use a tool called Jaaxy.
What a wonderfully simple program that offers so many tools that help us take our web pages out of the dark and into the light.
Let Me Explain
As an internet marketer, I write about subjects that pertain to my business model. Honestly, Sometime coming up with ideas on what to write about can be somewhat taxing. If I had to do it without tools, I would be lost before I got started.
Jaaxy helps me decide on a topic, find the perfect title and gain valuable information on who is looking for what and how popular what I am writing about can be or will not be.
This saves me a Ton of time trying to come up with the right catch phrase or description to incorporate onto my site that will assure people coming to my site. It shows me how close to the top of that first page of searches I will show up.
Honestly, the first page is where you want to be. Very few people go to the second page. Most of the links folks will choose will be right there on the first page. But I don’t have to tell you that.
No doubt you have done a search before. How many pages did you go through? Was your choice on the first page?
You also know your own habits on the web. You are armed with information as a consumer that will help you as a business person as you already know your habits.
Jaaxy will help you find the right words, show you the statistics on those words and give variations of the words or terms you will use. It also gives you other very important information based on your choice of terms used.

Some of the things that are important to me, are probably important to you also. We are individuals in so many ways. However, there are also many things that we all have in common with each other.
FOR EXAMPLE – WE ALL ASPIRE TO SOMETHING.
Creating a better life
Having the perfect relationship
Owning our dream car
Buying a home
DOESN’T MATTER WHO WE ARE
We all have unanswered questions, about life, about love, about the universe. Sometime we’re afraid to ask. Sometime we’re unafraid and boldly seek out answers.
With that concept in mind, I wanted to create a space to chat. Unfortunately, I am no Bill Gates or Mark Zuckerberg. So, if you are here reading this and want to have a conversation, leave me a comment about what you would like to read about and I will take up the task!
Bookmark this page so you can come back and we can share thoughts and info.
TOPIC FOR THE DAY
I don’t want to be here. I would rather be playing with my dog or visiting my son or anything but taxing my brain to write something here!
That sounds like every day. That little girl in me really wants to play and blow off being responsible. I can think of a million and one things that I would rather be doing. I am sure you could too.
The upside of this is that I can apply myself and ‘get it done’. If I push myself to truly pay attention and focus on what I have to do, I can probably get it done in a short amount of time. That dedication will open up more time for me to do some of those things that I wantto do!
This post ties in well with another page on this site. If getting things done in a timely fashion is problematic, you might want to take a look at it here.
A plan is always a good idea. I am big on lists. Here in Wealthy Affiliate, I have many lists. Some are the same every single day.

At the most, I have worked 4 hours when completing this list. That is way short of a full day. After looking at all I accomplished, I am feeling much better about what I am doing.
Today I had to go sign into my Google account and check my Analytics for my website (that is a free program) to see the statistics on my site. It was cool because I see that all my posts have indexed which means when someone goes to search for something, if it has anything to do with my site, it will come up in a search and people can click on it and go to my webpage. That is awesome! Getting indexed is something that makes us smile a big smile. It is also one of the many many things we learn about and how to do in Wealthy Affiliate.
We don’t just learn how to do it, we learn why we do it and what it does.
A GREAT POINT TO MAKE
This site is mostly about Wealthy Affiliate and how it works and what it can do for anyone who wants to become an online marketer. The great point is understanding what you get as an affiliate in WA. If you have ever tried to set up a website, you have learned how simple it can be. There is a lot of drag-and-drop sites that are quite easy to put together. If putting them together was the only thing to worry about, that would be awesome.
However, there is so much more to doing business on the internet. Just because you have created a website, doesn’t mean it is going to get viewed on-line.
My comment above about being indexed is the great point to make. I am going to bet you didn’t read anything about indexing your site when you created that very simple website. I am going to bet you didn’t have any idea that it would need to be indexed.
Well, don’t feel bad. I didn’t know anything about it either.
I do now! And so much more.
AT FIRST, IT LOOKS DIFFICULT AND OVERWHELMING
Much like lots of new learning processes. Remember when you first learned to drive. What seems so simple and second nature now was once very confusing and complicated.
So, like my list above and ‘indexing’ and learning how to drive, everything has a first step. Leave me a comment and we can talk about that first step.

As I sit here going through the blog posts I have written, I had an epiphany I would like to share with you. I believe this could be the most important blog I will write. So if you are truly interested in creating your future as you feel it should be…
Grab a latte or an ice tea or whatever your favorite (non-alcoholic) drink is, have a seat in your most comfy chair, settle in for a serious preponderance of an extremely thought-provoking and potentially life-changing conversation.
The Way Things Are Done “Normally“
Honestly, I believe it’s not our fault we turn out the way we do. With a skill set designed to create a mundane and complicated life, filled with strife and struggle – who can blame the student. We are a result of the life lessons we are taught beforewe have a choice.
Our thought processes are formed based on what information we are given or shown from our caretakers. They do it this way because it is how they were taught.
We are introduced to the styles of clothing we wear, what colors we wear, what we eat and what we believe about life. – We are given our food – our clothes – our toys. Even our friends as we grow are dictated by where we live, who our parents know and hang out with, fellow employees/acquaintances, relatives, and neighbors. The children of our parents’ friends become our friends because they are who we are exposed to.
As humans, we need this initial exposure and teaching. We are not like animals who are born and instinctively know how to hunt for food.
There does come a point when we have free will and the right to make choices for our own lives. That day is today. Today we move away from normal. Today we begin to build OUR dreams. Today is the first day of the rest of our lives! Today is a day of discovery when we realize that we are infinite, a child of the universe, capable of anything we apply our selves to with diligence and dedication.
THE DEFINITION OF NORMAL
In search of all things normal, I came up with some interesting phrases. What I found was an unfortunate description of how people all over the world are molded from birth.
I am not going to post a bunch of links to support my findings. You can do the research yourself, which I highly recommend anyway. We tend to believe lots of information posted throughout the World Wide Web without doing any research which is a bad habit as it is simply taking information for granted without any verification. So, please – verify.
I researched three dictionaries from online sources. They were Wiki/Wiki thesaurus/ and a British dictionary.
Following are a list of words used to describe ‘normal’:
Noun: conforming to the standard or common type, usual, the average or mean, the standard or type.
Psychological definition: free from mental disorder
Is This Where You Want To Be?
I did that research a long time ago and searched it again for the sake of this post. Definitions change every day it seems.
For the longest time, I believed that being considered ‘normal’ was a good thing. It was then, over twenty years ago, I decided that being ‘normal’ was not a category I wanted to belong in. In fact, I decided that if I am going to belong in any category, I wanted it to be the ‘me’ category, my determination, my success, my joy, my creation, my life.
I think the part of ‘normal’ that bothered me the most was ‘conforming to the standard or common type‘. Thinking about what that meant and how that affected my life, I woke up.
Not only did I not want to be ‘normal’, I did not want to be any of the other things ‘normal’ represented such as ‘average, commonplace, regular, and ordinary’.
If I have been told by 10 people consistently for years that I am normal, I will believe it. Everyone will believe it. First is the process of desensitization where we become familiar with whatever information is being presented to us. Secondly, is the process of acceptance where we believe what we are being told simply because we are hearing it everywhere. Thirdly, is acceptance. This is also the process of propoganda which we are constanly being barraged with from the media and political sources to keep us in the dark or sway us in a particular direction. Along with acceptance comes conformity. This is where we believe what we are told and we live our lives accordingly. We live our lives being or working toward being ‘normal’.
Too Many People Alone In A Crowd
After considering the level of happiness being achieved by many folks in the struggle to live a normal life, myself included – it seemed to me that it is a way of holding people back. Consider this; if we are raised to believe that being normal is a rightous and good way to be, when we can look at our lives and confirm that we are in fact normal, we can relaxe and simply continue doing what we are doing because we have arrived, we have succeeded, we are right where we are suppose to be – ‘Normal’.
Consider this. If there is a population of 325 million people in the United States and of those people 25 million are rich, either through inheritance or hard work, that means that the other 300 million must be normal. Normal described as ‘typical’ could represent 300 million Americans as overworked and underpaid.
These two groups of people – 25 Milllion People and 300 million people are filled with normal people. However, what is normal for one group of people may not be normal for another group of people. For instance, a wealthy family may get up in the morning and sit at a breakfast table and have a chef or other servants prepare and serve their meal. For some wealthy folk – that is normal.
A poverty stricken group of people may wake up in the morning, brush the snow off their cardboard cave on some back street, pull themselves out into the cold and wander down the street to the soup kitchen where they might be able to grab a hot cup of coffee and maybe something to eat. Within a homeless group, this is normal/typical.
So, honestly and I mean lets be real here. Is there such a thing as normal? Do we live our lives with blinders on to the truth about life?
I do not believe there is such a thing as ‘normal’. How can one word be used to describe such an diversely unrelated group of people and/or circumstances?
But I digress.
I decided that I would decide who and what I am for myself. This is an important step for anyone to succeed in any area of life. No one can move forward beyond the norm unless you are willing to recreate yourself. Become greater than the ‘norm’. Become greater than ‘average’. Become more than ‘common’.
It is simple! We all have been told to comply, maintain, be productive, go with the flo, don’t make waves, don’t stand out, don’t draw attention. I do not see any success in this process. Bill Gates is certainly not ‘normal‘. He was once just a child who’s parents jumped for joy when he went pee-pee in the toilet.
He went against the ‘normal’ rules and stood out. When he was hanging out in garages, building his first computer, do you think folks looked at him and said
“That is just great! Billy is going to create one of the worlds categorically first and most profound pieces of technology that will be in nearly every persons home in the civilized world AND become the worlds most wealthy man!“
Or do you think they said “That kid hangs out in the garage all the time talking about some cockamamie story about cyberspace. He is a bit off his rocker!” I choose the latter of the two.
“Well, Look at him now. He is worth more money than God – figuratively speaking. Look at anyone who is extremely successful – aside from those born with a silver spoon in their mouth as they don’t count, they are groomed to be successful on levels most people work their butts off to obtain and most times never get there. Not to mention they have the financial resources to pay others to make them successful and it is mostly what they do. Those that are very successful have walked a different path, thought outside the box and mostly work for themselves – not other people.
My point is in order for us to not be ‘normal’, we must believe in ourselves, believe that we are not like everyone else – not like ANYONE ELSE. We must see ourselves as an individual capable of thinking for ourselves and making decisions based on what we want for our lives, not what someone else wants for us or from us.
What ‘Normal’ Has Done To My Attitude
I realize this blog must sound like a big sell. And that is partially correct. There is a reason for this explanation of normal. I am an online marketer. With the internet being such a prominent part of everyone’s life – and it is only becoming more entwined in our lives daily – it only makes sense to be a part of it.
When I think of who I want to read this article, a normal person does not come to mind. This is not for normal people. It is for people who know they can achieve whatever they set their mind to. For those who would not allow outside influences to determine their level of success. I want someone to read this, sign up for Wealthy Affiliate and work it so one day, not so long down the road, I will get an email or a message or a comment on a post I write saying that making the choice to join WA has changed their life for the better in ways they couldn’t have imagined upon initially joining. That is absolutely the probablity for those who make a committment to succeed in Wealthy Affiliate. NO LIE! NO BS! Bottom line is that level of success is completely possible for anyone. Period!
Eventually, if you are not tightly entwined with the internet, you will be left behind as the internet is not going to disappear one day. It is here to stay and everything is moving to the internet.
Now you can be on the internet on your cell phone. Cell phone – now there is a whole other story! The internet is everywhere. It is accessible from just about anywhere. Today, there are people doing business with someone in China while sipping coffee with friends at Starbucks. There are people gaming with people across the world in games like World of Warcraft and Gears of War, The Sims and Fallout Las Vegas. It truly is the internet of all things.
I can order pizza for delivery on the internet – and do. I can do pretty much anything on the internet. We can get information on any subject we can think of. We work on the web, buy on the web, sell on the web, keep in touch, blog, learn, game and so much more. It is the internet of all things.
What Being Normal Doesn’t Look Like
I am an Affiliate for a training program called ‘Wealthy Affiliate’. When I began with WA, it was to create my own prosperity, to determine my own hours and increase my overall worth so I could be in control of all aspects of my life.
However, I must admit that my presence here on the internet and my experience with Wealthy Affiliate, my reasons for doing this have become so much more. My business in WA IS to continue to create my own personal wealth and prosperity and live the life I want to live. Since joining Wealthy Affiliate, I have learned that there are so many people out there searching for something better.
I am not saying that this is right for everyone. Nothing is right for everyone. What I am saying is if there is a void, something missing, if you feel you are living your life to make a paycheckand at the end of the day, missing out on living because you are working so long and hard to just pay the bills, this is an option.
This is a way for you to change your stars.
Anyone can do it. And, honestly – I would absolutely love to see everyone live the life they want and achieve their dreams. Afterall, isnt’t that the whole purpose for life?
I am going to share some VERY personal stuff here. You see, I come from a very dysfunctional family background as I am sure so many of us do. Both Parents were alcoholics and abusive. I am also a survivor of childhood sexual abuse which can seriously alter negatively one’s self-image. So, learning to grow away from the negativity and self-image I grew up with was a battle.
Not only did I consider myself all those terms used to describe ‘normal’, I considered myself much less than that. Unlovable and unworthy are two places I battled to rise from.
Today, I have completed my Bachelors Degree as well as my Master’s Degree. Something twenty years ago I could not have seen as even a consideration, let alone an achievement. I have come a long way, baby!
That is what discovering the definition of normal did for me. It was as simple as making the decision to follow MY dream, MY choices. I decided that as long as I had breath and a brain, I could work diligently to ‘change my stars’ (from ‘A Knights Tale’ starring Keith Ledger).
I tell you now, it was no easy task to complete my education. I dropped out of school while in the 7th grade. Without any more education, I received my GED without any formal classes and went straight to college. I had no math beyond fractions or any of the S.T.E.M. courses beyond that level. I assure you, the GED did not come close to prepare me for college some 25 years later.
I tell you this as an example of the proof that anyone can change their stars. All you have to do is decide to do it and follow through. I am not saying it is easy. All success is earned through hard work. This kind of work is working smarter – not harder!
Normal has changed my attitude towards most things in my life. I would rather reap the fruits of my hard work then to have some company reap the fruits of my hard work while I struggle from paycheck to paycheck. Just makes sense to me.
Don’t Except NORMAL
Baby steps. One foot in front of the other. One step at a time. That is how it gets done.
This is the part where I tell you to join Wealthy Affiliate. So consider yourself told.
I am however, going to take this one step further. Yes, I want you to join Wealthy Affiliate. If you are here, reading this blog, you are interested in becoming an online marketer on some level.

And you can always leave me a message and I will be glad to respond to your comments. I am going to take this one step further though. Yes, I would like you to join me.
I would like for you to think about all the things I have said here more.

Check it out here and please, leave me a note about your visit, suggestions, inspirations or just to say hi.
No sell here. Just a conversation about you and me.
I know in my travels throughout the internet, it seems like every single thing is a sale, or a promotion. Buy this. Buy that. Sales. Opportunities to get rich or meditate yourself to complete incredible health.
This is probably no different for you. So, I want to take a minute to explain a few things to you about the Wealthy Affiliate program and why I think it works so well. Also, why I believe there is no other program that offers what Wealthy Affiliate offers. What makes it worth while and why it is where ~ I feel ~ anyone marketing on the internet, that wants to be in control of how that happens and be successful ought to be.
You see, I don’t believe there is anyone out there that doesn’t want to be in control of their lives. People have family, friends, companions, and places they want to be able to spend time with and see.
In all my years in this world, the one thing I have learned is that we are all disposable. There is always someone in the background ready to pick up where we leave off. Nobody’s job is completely secure. You hear all the time about so-and-so who worked for this company for 30 or so years and went in to work one day and were let go for whatever reason. Maybe the company was down sizing or losing money, or simply were replacing folks with young blood.
I have even heard of companies that are having their long time employees training their replacements.
This is not made up stuff. It is real and happening everywhere. We are an ID number and we produce and make companies successful. Without us, they fold. Even with that, we are just a number and as easily replaceable as a pair of old socks. Sad ~ but true.
These white-water rafters look like they are having fun. I agree. I am in upstate NY visiting family and friends. Today, I am writing this blog. It is raining out and a stay in kind of day. So, I have chosen to work some. Tomorrow is Wednesday. Most of my friends and family will be at their regular jobs. The sun will be out and myself and a friend are going kayaking here in the Adirondacks. I will probably take some pictures and use them on my website later. Even playing, I can work or work while I play and the work IS play.
Right now, I am downloading a game onto my PC to play later when it rains again and I don’t want to work. I choose my work hours. I choose how long I will work. I like that freedom. Don’t get me wrong… I work!
I have learned and am learning so much about marketing on the internet, I have two businesses on line that I’ve created through Wealthy Affiliate and there will be more. I’m putting together a blueprint for an actual storefront and am excited about that!
Every tool I could possible need is available to me here in Wealthy Affiliate. I pay one fee, once a year and it is minimal. Can you maintain a business for $350.00 a year. I can and I am doing exactly that. Right now I have three domains. All of them are a work in progress as I work on them a little four or five times a week.
I never need to wash my hands after working. I do not have to drive to work or from work. I can work in my living room or in another state in someone else’s living room. I can work at Starbucks. I can work anywhere off line and then go on line later and apply what I have created.
I know this is long winded. I wanted to show you that I am a real person here behind this keyboard. You can be that person behind a keyboard too. For the cost of dinner out once a month, you can have access to every tool you could possibly need to become successful doing any kind of business on the internet.
I guess I would like it if every one took back their time and their power and became successful in their own right. There is always going to to be those that never quite believe in their true potential and discard this sort of thing right away. There is a road less traveled out there and it is an amazing road if you dare to achieve your dreams and aspire for something more than a 40 – 60 hour work week for someone who will discard you in a minute if it will increase their bottom line.
Check it out. You can do it for free. In fact, you could do it and never have to pay for it. For your success and your ability to create your own freedoms, check us out. You won’t be sorry you did. Here is to your future. Here is to the adventure of a life time on the road less traveled!
One last thing, feel free to leave a comment, ask a question or check out some of the other posts on this sight. There is a wealth of information available for you to make a sound decision to come on board with us. You won’t be sorry you did. To your success!
I think we get hung up on titles. I am not a fan of putting people into categories. People are amazing. Everyone is an entrepreneur. If you have ever sold anything, talked a friend into doing something they did not want to do, or simply changed someone’s mind you are an entrepreneur.Titles and categories are so limiting. We put ourselves into a category and before you know it, we have limited our abilities somehow. Now we are experts within our ‘category’. But that is not all we are.An Entrepreneur Marketer, an entrepreneur, a marketer, and there is always the Internet Marketer and on-line Entrepreneur. These are all boundaries designed to limit our abilities into a box. A box I like to think of as the one I think outside of.I am a Jennifer. That is my category. A Jennifer of all trades – master of none. I will gladly take that title as I believe perfection can never be reached because there is always an upgrade around the corner. The best we can be is ever learning and improving our position on this planet – you know – and staying ahead of the rat race.I know, sounds a little like rambling. I guess I am a bit. I want to make a few points that back up what I have said in past posts. We limit ourselves. Without thinking- because it was instilled in us a long time ago to be a certain way… to think a certain way.Breaking those boundaries we have created for ourselves takes dedicated attention to our habits. There I go again, talking about our habits. Categories, habits, training, brainwashing, teachings, lessons, and so many other terms for a simple focus on maintaining the status quo.For me, the hardest habit for me to break was the way I thought about me. How I considered me to be just like everyone else. Normal, average, and not all-that-impressive. As I searched my life and tried to figure out how I came to look at myself this way, I figured out that we are trained from a baby to be just another person in the crowd. That makes us manageable and controllable.All of a sudden I felt quite defiant. I am not just anyone. I can do whatever I put my mind to. I can be great. I am capable of learning. Honestly, with YouTube, there really isn’t much you can’t learn now. YouTube is my go to for pretty much anything I am trying to learn. There are some things that are better learned from the experts though.So, I decided that I am going to be great! Want to be great with me? Lets shoot for the stars together in Wealthy Affiliate. The best place on the internet to become ALL you can be.Leave a comment and lets talk about the future and how you can benefit from signing up and creating a life that gives you back your time and allows you to create your dreams. There is no better time than right now.
Creating Successful Internet Marketers – A Review of Wealthy Affiliate 2019
Let me introduce myself. My name is Danny but my friends call me Danae’.
This is me doing one of the things I love, Welding and creating metal sculpture.
I am also an avid internet learner and surfer. I have been active on the internet for 23 years. In that time, I have participated in more marketing schemes than I can count. I have created so many business cards with ‘distributor ID’ numbers and replicated website URLs, I gave up tracking them. Internet marketing programs promising to make you rich, change your life, allow you to quit your regular job and promising mansions and that Beautiful sleek sport car you have only ever dreamt about if you join their organization and become a part of the wonderful world of internet marketing are out there by the thousands.
Today, I make no promises of success – or failure. Over the past nearly three decades, I have learned many things about the internet, marketing, and promises of riches and ‘living the dream’. If you are looking for a magic program that is going to allow you to simply sign up, promote a self-replicating website and become rich, you might as well stop right now – I don’t want to waste your time. This program is not for you. It is not for you because there are no programs anywhere that are going to give that which you do not work for.
I am talking about a program called Wealthy Affiliate. As much as I want you to join and become successful, I want you to know what you are getting and how that compares to what is out there. This is the easy part simply because Wealthy Affiliate is by-far the best place to grow a successful business on the internet!
It’s easy to get tangled up in any of the thousands of offerings available on the web. So, to help you make a more informed decision about where you are going to spend that hard earned cash… I offer this review of what I consider to be the best program on the internet! I am not just saying that and soon you will understand why I am so incredibly dedicated to continuing my success with Wealthy Affiliate!

Wealthy Affiliate owned by Kyle and Carson
This is a 13-year-old company run by a couple of guys with 25 employees. Their internet presence has come a long way since the start up of Wealthy Affiliate. Kyle and Carson are genuinely dedicated to creating every opportunity possible for anyone to achieve success through marketing on the internet. One amazing aspect of Wealthy Affiliate is it is not restricted to any one marketing niche. There are several training series and support within a like-minded community that is available 24/7/365 dedicated to your success.
Did I mention that Wealthy Affiliate has not changed there membership costs ever?
I have never seen anything like it before. So many times in the past, I have thought, “this is the one” only to find the training was missing one key element – how to be successful. While going through training with Wealthy Affiliate, I posted this comment in one of the blog sites for members, “I am moving right along in the training. Extremely intense. So much information to digest and so much work to do”!
I can speak only for myself when I say if the training available to anyone within Wealthy Affiliate does not pave the way to success, it is not because of the tools. The key to succeed, not only with Wealthy Affiliate – throughout life in anything one aspires to achieve – is not quitting. Nothing is for free. True success is achieved through diligence, dedication and yes – hard work. No where on the internet – for the cost of membership have I found this level of training and training tools available through one program. Combined with community support, video’s, and blogs the amount of success that can be achieved is unprecedented. That is my experience with Wealthy Affiliate. That is thousands of people’s experience here at Wealthy Affiliate!
Did I mention the videos for pretty much any tutorial you need is available for you to view and study at any time day or night?
Wealthy Affiliate offers a certification course, an affiliate boot camp course, live video classes and more. The information and guidance is broken down so the internet newbie can clearly understand what to do and how to do it. Every aspect of creating an internet presence and being successful is covered in detail throughout the training. The tools available are geared for success on all levels.
Did I mention the 24/7/365 support from the highly qualified and trained people here at Wealthy Affiliate?
It is not my intention to compare Wealthy Affiliate with other programs. I believe all programs have something to offer. From my years of marketing, both online and off, I have not experienced the level of support that is available through Wealthy Affiliate. While progressing through training, I had several questions. I am somewhat of a night owl so my questions did not always get asked between 9 and 5. I received a detailed response to inquiries and not just from a support team, from one of the owners. With a strong support system set up within Wealthy Affiliate, including live chat, site support, questions and answers, I am able to focus on the purpose I am here – to build an internet presence and be successful. My money is precious to me. I work hard for it as I am sure everyone does. So where I spend it matters. I need results. With Wealthy Affiliate, I know I am learning and moving forward toward my dreams.
You see, Wealthy Affiliate is a global organisation. Meaning there are members all over the world. That puts the help line on high response. It doesn’t matter if you are on line at 3am or 2 in the afternoon. There will be a group of members available to answer any questions you pose and if they can’t get you the answer, they will guide you to where the answer is.
Wealthy Affiliate has such a vast amount of tools to help create an internet presence that stands up to the best sites on the world wide web. At first, I felt a bit overwhelmed as I am not a ‘techy’ kind of person. I am more on the business and promoting side. My first impression was “Man, I have no clue what to do now!” In that first moment – I seriously considered that this might not be for me. I posted a question and got an explanation that gave me the boost of confidence I needed to begin learning and creating my first Website.
Every single tool you need to become successful is right there at the stroke of the keyboard.
The information is broken down into baby steps. What overall seems so impossible and daunting, is actually incredibly informative and effective. I only wish I would have known about Wealthy Affiliate 13 years ago when it hit the internet. I have achieved and continue to gain abilities that I once literally only dreamed I would be able to accomplish. This is a must experience to fully understand how incredible a tool this truly is.
If you were to search the internet for a website hosting program, you would find that WordPress hosts approximately 28% of the internet. That is a huge chunk of the internet when you consider how many programs are out there. For one company to host almost a third of the internet is an incredible affirmation as to the capabilities it provides.
24/7 Managed monitoring
24/7 automated monitoring
24/7/365 site support with an average 5-minute response time
Virus and Malware protection
Powerful servers – Powerful sites
WordPress hosting covers such a vast amount of information, it could dominate the Wealthy Affiliate review. Millions of marketers, blogs, news sites and more rely on the capabilities of WordPress to maintain a safe and successful internet presence. To understand and know the depth of this tool can only be achieved through experiencing it for yourself.
Among many of the impressive aspects of Wealthy Affiliate is the cost of the program. There are three ways to participate. A free membership which offers a large amount of tools to achieve your goals. Granted, it might take a bit longer to achieve a high level of success, however, a high level of success is absolutely attainable with a free membership. The amount of tools available in a free membership are quite impressive. Yet some of the tools are temporary. There is a paid membership which gives you a ‘Premium’ status allowing you access to such a powerful toolbox. Success is only limited by your dedication to succeed. Premium membership can be paid on a monthly ($49 per month), or an annual basis ($350 which works out to be $29 and change a month). The annual basis is nearly a 50% discount of the monthly membership fee.
Where – and I mean anywhere – can you build a successful business on line for $29 a month? NOWHERE – except Wealthy Affiliate.
I challenge you to do the research.
The cost to become Premium and maintain that status by comparison to any other membership on the internet that I have found is mind boggling. While it would cost hundreds of dollars per month to maintain the level of support you receive in Wealthy Affiliate, the membership does not even come close to a hundred dollars for the monthly fee. The annual fee is even less than that. The tools, instruction and support that is available to every member of Wealthy Affiliate, could certainly cost upwards of $1,000’s of dollars per month. I know what you are thinking. That is just crazy. You’re right. Consider this…
domain names (free and paid)
Search engine optimization tools
A supportive community of 1000’s and 1000’s of like-minded people helping
Business tracking tools
All available 24/7/365
And so much more (and I mean sooo much more)
All this and more is available to guide and train you to create the lifestyle you desire through becoming a highly skilled and successful internet entrepreneur in whatever area YOU decide to pursue. That is why I am here!
There are folks selling baby carriers, health food, massage therapy, football jerseys, nutritional supplements, blogs. If you can name it, Wealthy Affiliate will teach you how to be successful in it. Period! NO BS!
Before I decided to become a member of Wealthy Affiliate, I did some serious research. I found many people that had a lot of bad things to say about Wealthy Affiliate. I must admit, it made me hesitant. I went through the Wealthy Affiliate program as a free member at first.
I wanted to at least see what I was considering walking away from. After going through some of the information, reading about the owners and researching their history and what their goals for Wealthy Affiliate are – and have always been, what the cost was for the amount of tools I would have access to, the fact that in all the time this program has been on the internet, the cost has not gone up once, I decided that I would stick around for a while and give it a sincere try.
After looking around and using the free tools, I made my decision to dedicate myself to MY success. I discovered that with everything Wealthy Affiliate has to offer, everything that I have access to, there could only be one reason for the nay sayers. My success is based on my level of dedication and that alone. Wealthy Affiliate is not trying to get you to buy into a program that is going to get someone else rich.
Wealthy Affiliate is a program which offers an incredible set of tools, training and support to help anyone learn how to become a successful internet presence. Your success is based on your input. If you succeed, you succeed because you utilized the available tools, dedicated yourself to succeed and stuck with it. Simple as that!
There are no ‘get-rich-quick’ programs that work short of striking gold. I believe it is an illusion created by those that would take your money and run. That has been my experience over the years. You reap what you sow!
Wealthy Affiliate is simply the most valuable tool you can find that stands behindyour success, promotesyoursuccess, and truly wantsyou to succeedin whatever wayYOUwant to succeed.
So to the nay sayer’s I say, Nothing is free and hard work delivers success every time. I am in it to win it. That’s my story and I am sticking to it!
So what are you waiting for? If you have thought about becoming successful on the internet, putting yourself in charge of your life and your time AND your money, this is the place to achieve that goal. Sign up for FREE! Come and check us out.
Let Me Know What You think – Good – Bad- or Indifferent!!!
I wanted to take a few minutes to sit and talk about the realities of working on the internet. I also wanted to talk a little bit about working a normal job out there in the real world.
I do both so I regularly have epiphanies about what I am doing and why I do it. This is what I want to share with you today. I also do other stuff and will touch on that a little bit.
First thing I would like to do is clear up any misconceptions concerning the ‘dream aspect’ of working on line. For those people who do not know anything about working on line, it tends to have a dreamy persona.
Visions of sitting by the pool somewhere, soaking up the sun and sucking down a cold one is one of the more popular ones I hear about. Mine was sitting by a fire pit, enjoying some friends company in a woodsy setting while typing out a bit of info here and there on my computer.
Truth is, getting started is work. If you want to reach the goal of making enough money to actually relax a bit and enjoy life, take back some of that time, and be no ones employee ~ one must work diligently and be dedicated to the goal. Truth is, working on line like I am doing, is still working. The benefit is that I get to choose my hours. I don’t have to answer to anyone. I get paid in direct correlation to my own work ethics. I work hard, I get paid well. I work leisurely, I get a leisurely pay check.
Truth is, if someone knocks on the door while you are working, You can answer the door, sit and have a cup of coffee and get back to it when the visit is done and not have to worry about a boss telling you to get back to work or worse, firing you because life took precedent over their bottom line.
Truth is, I can take a vacation, yes, I will bring my computer and probably do some work while vacationing. I won’t do that on all vacations. Bet you can’t do that with a regular job.
There are many benefits to working online. Don’t be fooled by the hype out there. Don’t buy into the whole ‘get rich’ jargon. Some things remain true and will continue to remain true for a long time to come… if it sounds too good to be true ~ it probably is!
Truth is, if you are serious about taking back your time, you will probably have to transition from a regular job to working on line. You probably have to create that second income that will eventually replace your 1st income and allow you to quit that regular job. I tell you now, not everyone can do it. You have to be dedicated. You have to be willing to do the work.
Truth is, nothing is free! There are thousands of places you can go to learn about working on line. Thousands of places that will help you build a website. Thousands of places that will take your money and give you a few quick steps to copy and paste and post a website. There are thousands of places that leave you with a bad taste in your mouth for working on line. Those thousands of places will never get you to where you want to be.
My truth is, I have bought into several of those ‘thousands of places’ and found out the hard way that my hard earned money and valuable time was taken away from me because of those thousands of promises out there that were never able to come through and give me what I needed to be successful as an on line entrepreneur, those things that were promised to me if I signed up with them.
I am a Premium member of Wealthy Affiliate. I will continue to be a Premium member of Wealthy Affiliate. While I am learning EVERYTHING I need to know to grow a successful business on line, I am creating that success. The tools available to me, any time, day or night, week day or week end, are the best tools I have ever utilized on the web and I have been on the web for 22 years. I have been in marketing for as many. I have tried the pyramid schemes, network marketing from telephone companies to nutritional supplements programs.
What Wealthy Affiliate offers is beyond anything I could have even imagined. If you were to go it alone, you would have to pay for a place to ‘house’ your website, register a domain name, build the website, update the website, (what is involved in building a successful website is incredibly intensive ~ I had no idea of what was involved long term), and the cost.
Believe me when I say that the cost of being a premium member with Wealthy Affiliate is beyond worthwhile. For the cost of a monthly membership, it is truly insane what you get in return. Then you have the opportunity to pay an annual membership fee which is even more incredible. If you were to calculate the cost of ANY other place on the internet, what you get for the return ~ Wealthy Affiliate is a complete no brainer.
If you have ever considered taking that step to being your own boss, the artist painting the picture that is your life, check out what you get with Wealthy Affiliate ~ for free ~ what you get as a premium member ~ (in fact, an annual payment to Wealthy Affiliate is more than likely less than you would pay ‘per month’ in any other program) after you have bought all their gadgets to be successful), and compare that to ANY place on the internet and you will know that the very best you can do is Wealthy Affiliate. Check this out. When you are ready to take the last step you will ever have to take to your success as an online entrepreneur (in any area of work YOU decide), look no further. Click the link below to take the next step to your complete success.
The key here… the three words in red. ‘LEARN THE SKILLS’. This is not just another web-based program offering you to get rich and the tools to get you there. I am in it and I am in it to win it. I am learning, I am building, I become more successful every single day. I believe in me. I believe in this organization and the tens of thousands of people in the organization.
I hope to see you inside. I have a handle in Wealthy Affiliate. It is DannyB1. Look for me. I am here for my success. I am here for your success.
