When I started searching the Internet I was surprised to see how many Internet Marketing Programs were available. It was overhelming and confusing and sometimes very hard to understand the concept of the program.
It seemed that the main object, for some of these programs, was to get me to sign up for something I did not fully understand. More effort was put into telling me what a great program it was and how easy it was for me to get rich instantly, but not what the program was about or how it worked.
I am one of those guys who needs to understand things before I get involved. I need to know what it is all about, see and feel the product, because I want to be careful before I buy.
Some programs, but not many, do offer a trial period where you can have a closer look. I for one need that, so I can get to know the people behind the program, and know if I can trust them.
I try to avoid programs where the owner is driving a very expensive car, living in a villa or calling himself a Guru. I do not trust the Get Rich Quick programs because I know from experience they are not true.
I, like many others, have been looking for legitimate training courses in Internet marketing. I have tried many of them and they have all taught me something, so I have no regrets, but it did cost a lot of money. Through these experiences I realized that education or training has a cost: time and/or money.
When I found Wealthy Affiliate the first thing I saw was information on How Wealthy Affiliate Works. No hype on how quickly I would get rich, nor any of the typical get rich quick schemes.
According to Wealthy Affiliate it is all about four simple steps:
- Choose an Interest
- Build a Website
- Attract Visitors
- Earn revenue
There are simply four steps, and exactly what I was trying to find. I thought this was too good to be true, and I needed to know more about it. So I scrolled down the page and read some more.
I was invited to create a free account without a time limit. I had nothing to lose, so I did join and I have never regretted that decision.
When I joined Wealthy Affiliate the first thing I noticed was the feeling that it was a complete course. They seemed to cover everything about internet marketing and use every method there is to present the material to you.
There are video classes, tutorials and weekly webinars. You can learn at your own pace, so there is no
stress factor. You can rerun and stop and start whenever you like, and when you are stuck you can get help.
Once I was signed up as a member I found a great community of like minded people. Some were beginners, others more experienced, but they all had one thing in common. They were all building their online business, getting education and helping others do the same.
Wealthy Affiliate is a training center with a College like interactive community. Just like when you first start college, with so many classes available you might get confused at first. You need to give yourself some time to know your way around the Wealthy Affiliate site and take the classes at a pace that works for you.
One of the best things about Wealthy Affiliate is that the owners are always available. They answer questions, teach about internet marketing and website building. I like that they don‘t seem like the kind of guys driving fancy cars, and they don‘t call themselves Gurus or Mentors, like many others do.
Wealthy Affiliate was founded in 2005 by two Internet Entrepreneurs, Kyle and Carson, from Victoria British Columbia, Canada. Since 2005, Wealthy Affiliate has been a leader in Internet marketing and online business training, connecting with hundreds of thousands of individuals, businesses, and aspiring online Entrepreneurs.
They encourage those looking at Wealthy Affiliate to view their profiles and get to know them better.
They are highly respected for all the work they put into their program and how eager they are at helping others be successful on the Internet. Plus they are not finished improving Wealthy Affiliate yet, see their goal for this year: Wealthy Affiliate is on the Rise in 2014!
This is not a get rich scheme so if you are looking for that you need to look elsewhere.
