About AlanBenney
Joined October 2018
Hello my name is Alan

Affiliate marketing is something I have been passionate about since 2005. I guess you could describe me as an experienced affiliate marketer.

From a very early age, I have been an Entrepreneur. I did start out life working in a sausage factory but soon realized being employed and having somebody breathing down my neck was clearly not for me. Moving on I decided to be self-employed and be in control of my own destiny.

We Become What We Think about

My father was a drummer and that was the road I decided upon from the age of 18 when I turned pro. I would describe me as a session drummer.

I did that for more than 20 years traveled the world working on cruise ships, Lived in Bermuda for 2 years worked for the BBC, ITV, toured with shows worked as a pit drummer played drums, tuned percussion great fun I am sure you get the picture.

I now share my knowledge and teach selected students in my home in Chipping Sodbury in the UK South Gloucestershire.

However, when the music industry dried up in the late nineties I found myself having to change direction where started my own business in the fruit trade for many years which I was very successful. I sold my business in early 2004 and started my journey to work online.

We Only Get Out Of Life What We Put In Right?

However, it has not been without challenges. Just like most people that look to work online I have fallen for many scams as the internet is littered with them. The most frustrating part is these people are super sales people and come across as honest but it took me years and lots of money to realize this.

Failure Is Part Of Success

Did you know the Thomas Edison made 1,000 unsuccessful attempts at inventing the light bulb? That really inspired me the key to success is to be consistent and persistent.

My only regret that I did not discover WA sooner what an amazing community many thanks to all you guys at WA

Thank you for your story, and yes we get what we put into life.
But we WILL fail many times, and that is OK, because they are all setting you up for the BIG SUCCESS!
Stay positive, and be around good people that inspire and help you, no negative people or thoughts.

Have an amazing journey

Hi Alan, welcome to WA and it’s good to meet you. I’ve also just found WA last month, but I’m very lucky to have found this fantastic platform very early on in my affiliate marketing career.
I am a complete novice and so am very excited to learn lots in 2019 and create a successful business online.
I hope to learn from your experiences and I wish you all the best with your future business.
Kind regards Rob

Hi, Alan.

Thanks for following me and joining my network; I've returned the compliment and followed you back.

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate. WA is a great community. In addition to the online discussions and articles that member's post, the official training is fantastic. There is so much to learn. I am here most days. I learn something new every day.

I've been a Premium member of Wealthy Affiliate over 18 months now, and I don't regret one day!

I look forward to reading more about you and your online experiences. I'm with you on the many gurus and charlatans, who aren't what they make out to be. Rest assured, Wealthy Affiliate isn't one of them.

Watch my first video: I posted here on WA, doing this was a big step for me!

Keep moving ahead. However your day may be, take a little step forward. Some days you'll make significant strikes, other days you will not, but do something every day, however small in building your business.

You will read many stories of WA members succeeding with their online goals. Some have achieved this in a few months, for others, it has taken a couple of years. The common theme for those that have reached their goals is taking action. Everyone who has succeeded has taken small steps every day. Do something, however tiny, every day, and you will reach your goal.

Pace yourself and enjoy your journey.

Best wishes,
Be Happy!

Hi!!! And welcome to WA Premium. You will not regret your decision!! The information available here is never ending!! And the training is incredible!! Take it ALL in!!

Follow the training! I cannot stress this enough. Do not skip around. Do the lessons in the order in which they are. As well as the tasks that follow each of those lessons. I often jumped ahead in training, on my own, to only later really regret it.

Go at your pace. Slow and steady is my new rule. You'll find you can't wait to learn more in the following days. You’ll want to learn more!! It ignites a new passion within you. It did me! Gave me back my purpose for living! There were a few lessons that I had to watch twice. If that's what you have to do, do it!

And soon you will have yourself an awesome website. Amazing direction, and the tools that you need to succeed in whatever it is you want to do!

You CAN do this!!

Be awesome!! Be amazing!!! And be successful!!

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)
AlanBenney Premium
