An Example of How It Is Done
I have talked a ton about Wealthy Affiliate and how wonderful it is. I have explained the cost effectiveness of the program and how you simply can not beat it any where on the internet. I have talked about all the wonderful tools you have access to to as a premium member of Wealthy Affiliate.
What I have not talked about specifically is the set of tools and how it might look while working towards your goal. So, in this blog, I am going to do just that. The following is an actual description of how it would look on your first day in Wealthy Affiliate. Here goes!
I am logged in and arrive at my home page. There is a dashboard that has a list of places I can go to. There is training for creating a Wealthy Affiliate site and Training for creating a site in a niche I choose. So, for the sake of this blog, I click on the Affiliate Bootcamp link which is for the Wealthy Affiliate training and my first page of training opens up and I begin reading.
The first page is an quick explanation of what it is with a simple breakdown of the lessons in this first section. There are 10 lessons, each with a set of lessons inside.
The first thing I notices was the comment field. There are over 9,000 comments right now on this page. I quickly realize I am not alone in this.
Lesson 1 is broken down into 10 lessons and I quickly notice that lesson 3 is building the website. Wow! This is going to move quickly. I begin to get excited at the prospect of being in business for myself and it is the first time it feels real. I even get a little nervous.
A Quick description of benefits and course outcome is presented:
1. Understand the WA Affiliate Program Opportunity
2. How to Set and Reach Extraordinary Affiliate Goals
3. Learn How You Can Meet Us in Vegas next year!
4. How to Share Content Within Wealthy Affiliate and Earn
5. Finding and Creating a Successful “Authority” Style Domain
6. Creating a Massively Successful WA Affiliate Campaign
I Have My Coffee And My Computer
I am ready to begin the journey. I dig right in. I begin reading and as I read and do the lesson, I realize there is a ton of information here to be absorbed and this is serious stuff. Not sure I understand all of what is being explained. One thing I can tell you now is to follow the lessons. Even if you do not understand completely what is being explained, you will. You will be repeating things and going over stuff and doing things in different ways and believe me the lessons are set up so you pick up the information in the way it needs to be applied and as you continue through all the lessons, you WILL pick up the information and it WILL become a part of your knowledge base.
You work your way through and you are at the lesson you probably have been waiting for… building the website. You get to that page where you have to choose your theme for your site and your head explodes. The choices. How do I choose what to do? This is where I started asking the most questions. What do I need to know about the themes to build a successful website.
I have changed my theme three times. So don’t worry about it too much. Remember you have a lot to learn and you WILL get there.
Lessons progress and you have a website on line… you are Published to the internet of all things. Now you learn about search engines and how important they are to the success of your business. You also will learn how to use the search engines to benefit your site. You will learn how to get your site and posts ranked with search engines such as Google, Yahoo, and Bing among others. You will learn how important getting ranked is to the success of your business and how to create posts that will get you ranked well.
I know all this stuff I have talked about so far is really foreign to you. Trust me, it will become second nature and in just a few short weeks, you will begin to understand this clearly and you will look back at the first time you signed into Wealthy Affiliate and realize how far you have come in such a short period of time. You really should pat yourself on the back because if you have stuck with it, committed to building this business for yourself and your loved ones, you are now in an a position for success to be the only option. The only thing that will stop you from succeeding now is you!
Remember, success does not happen over night. If you have checked into Wealthy Affiliate, you have learned that if you sign up for this, on an annual basis, (first, you will have saved yourself a TON of money), you can not build a successful business for 350ish dollars a year anywhere except right here in Wealthy Affiliate. Some people catch on really quick and are off and running in a few months, some take a little longer, some a year and some take two maybe more…. But where can you create a successful business for 350ish dollars a YEAR? All the tools will continue to be there for you every day, every night, every week, all the time. There will always be someone to ask your question who will respond and/or direct you to the appropriate place to resolve your problem, whatever it is. You will never be alone.
How awesome is that?!
I will be here for you! My handle in Wealthy Affiliate is Dannyb1 and you can find me here.
Every lesson you complete will advance your knowledge and your skills. I often look back at the beginning and am amazed at what I have achieved, how much I have learned, how much I have created and how it is changing my life.
I am grateful for many things. I am grateful that I was willing to step outside my comfort zone and take a chance on me. Every successful person has one thing in common… more I am sure, but this one thing… They believe in themselves. Maybe not completely even. Enough to take that initial step and start moving in that direction. As you move forward, your successes will show you that you CAN learn to be successful… that you are capable of creating something wonderful for your life, that you CAN take back your life… that you CAN gain control over your time and your destiny.
I know it all sounds so hyped up. I thought it was not within reach for me. I grabbed this like holding on to a rope for dear life. I tied a knot in the end and gave it my best shot. I am still here. I am not rich on this day. I do have more control over my life. I can take time if I need it. I don’t have to worry about someone else controlling my life and my dreams. Do I work? Yes, I do. I work for me. I work for my dreams ~ not someone else’s. The money I make is mine. I am enjoying the journey again.
I realize this is not an explicit explanation of Wealthy Affiliate, but it is a real one. Am I trying to bring you into this training program? Yes, I am. Do I believe it can change your life? Yes, I do. Why? Because it has changed mine and if it can change mine, it can certainly change yours.
It is not going to happen over night. You still have to work. You might even have to work harder for a while. I know you can’t just quit your job and expect this to give you that paycheck that will pay all the bills without any down time. It won’t. However, if you stick with it, and follow the lessons, it will more than replace that paycheck. It will allow you the freedom to take control of your life, your time, spend more time doing what you love, time with your family, traveling, the things that make you happy and make your life one you can live with and be happy. That is worth the work to get there.

I am sure you will see how amazing this truly is. Then get serious, commit to the training and to your future.
