My #1 Advice for beginners

Are you ready to start
your ascension to success?

Are you ready to start your ascension to success?

First of all, know that there's no such thing as getting rich quickly

Some of you may have encountered various programs or courses claiming to make you rich in a relatively short amount of time. Most of them are scams, the rest probably won’t work unless you’re willing to invest a minimum amount of money for advertising (I guess at least a thousand bucks for a decent profit).

Most of these programs are expensive, it’s not unusual to come across $2,000 courses promising a lot of things but rarely delivering it. And they will still propose you some upsells! That’s nuts. Now, I’m not going to lie to you. In the next sections, I’m going to promote you something, a platform where I started learning about affiliate marketing.

But before going any further, let me tell you that I have bought a lot of courses over the years, mostly cheap ones (under a hundred bucks) and some around a thousand bucks. I’m pretty good now at detecting scams because the marketing method to sell you those programs is always the same.

They always consist on a very long web page explaining (or rather convincing) you the benefits of the product, along with some big “Buy now” buttons and countdown timers pretending that this is either a limited offer or that the price will double soon, urging you to buy without letting you the time to think.

Of course, there is no way to know if the product (course, program, training, you name it) actually delivers what it’s promising because there’s no way to test it before buying it. And you can wait forever to get a refund in case the product is an awful scam.

Ever seen one of those "Buy" buttons? It's always advertising a price ending by the digit "7".
If I were you, I'd think twice before buying any of these products.​

Wealthy Affiliate: Why 1.4 million members are happy

Wealthy Affiliate is at the exact opposite of this. First, it’s free. Of course, there’s a premium membership, at $49 per month (no hidden fees or forced upsells), but you can access the platform freely to make you an idea of it. I’m sure many people are still using the free membership while enjoying its benefits. Because you have a lot of benefits with Wealthy Affiliate.

You can find all the benefits in a table a few paragraphs below but let me list you a few, just to make you realize that WA, even in its free membership version, is totally worth it.

Free web hosting

The first benefit is free web hosting. Yes, you read that right! For those who do not know what web hosting is, it’s the platform that will run your website for you. Basically, you can't have a website online without a web hosting provider, unless you have your own physical server, which is costly.

Now, I think that Bluehost must have the cheapest web hosting solution, and it’s billed $2.95 per month (personally, I have a $13/mo web hosting, but that’s because I have multiple websites). Anyway, the free version of Wealthy Affiliate offers you not only one free website but two!

That’s already worth more than 70$ per year (if I compare with Bluehost's cheapest offer, which doesn’t offer the same quality of service as WA by the way).

High-quality training for beginners

The second benefit is the training. Of course, you won’t get access to the full training with the free membership but you get access to the first of the five levels of the training. You can see below a screenshot of the chapters of the first level of the training.

I invite you to register and check by yourself the content, you’ll see that it’s very comprehensive, even for total beginners, and that it procures clear steps to achieve one by one. If a 69-year-old grandma managed to build her own website, I’m sure you can also do it!

Incredibly caring community

The third benefit is actually its community. Because Wealthy Affiliate is a loving and caring community of more than 1.4 million members, there will always be someone to answer your questions. Of course, you can also ask your questions directly to me, I’ll do my best to answer you as quickly and as precisely as possible. You’ll see below that many parts of WA are using its community to give and share, and that’s very, very important.

I repeat: This is not a get-rich-quick scheme

All right, those were a few of the benefits offered by WA. Not bad for a free version, isn’t it? Now, there are many success stories at Wealthy Affiliate but there’s something that’s made pretty clear right off the bat: affiliate marketing is not a get-rich-quick scheme. The training starts by explaining to you that you must put in the efforts constantly for several months before actually seeing any progress and start earning your first commissions.

That may come as a frustration for many of you, but the reward is totally worth it. Let’s look at Jerry’s revenue over time. Jerry is a 21-year old that started with WA while he was still a waiter in a restaurant.

As you can see, Jerry started to make money after six long months but after that, it went exponential. As of now, he’s making more than 5 thousand bucks a month consistently, and it keeps growing. And I’m not even talking about his 7K+ earnings in a week from the last Black Friday period!​

Still don't want to give it a try?

For those of you still wondering if they should start working extra hours on their blog, following WA training, or just keep their current job and enjoy their free time, let me show you this. You have two options:

Option A

You don’t change anything and keep living as usual, with your current job. Chances are your income won’t change, it may even decrease over time.

You think life is unfair, that you deserve more than this, but you keep watching TV or hanging out with friends after work, and doing absolutely nothing to improve your life.

Option B

You start working extra hours on your affiliate marketing blog, you may work 6 months or two years before making a penny (it depends on the work you put it, some may publish more content in a shorter period of time).

But after that, you can enjoy a good or very good income for the rest of your life, quit your job and be your own boss! How awesome is that?
