Hey there Paul

These are great goals and they are more than achievable! The more time you can spend on learning here within the Community at Wealthy Affiliate the better, but we've built WA so that you can work at your own pace!

I know that you are going to do great!

Really nice goals, Paul!

By laying things down in such a practical and logical way you now have something to work towards and something to focus on.

The key to succeeding here at WA is to take action on what you learn from the training and ask questions when you need help.

You've taken the first step so I wish you well on the rest of your journey. If I can help with anything along the way the don't hesitate to drop me a line.

Cheers,

Marcus

Hi Paul,

How are things going today?

I have a fairly clear desk today (just for a change...lol) so if you need a hand with anything or have a question then I'm here and happy to help.

You can contact me here or a private message will also be fine if you prefer.

Look forward to hearing how things are going, Paul!

Cheers,

Marcus

Hi Marcus,

I've actually just completed course 1. I can't help but feel that WA is just a much more elaborate pyramid scheme than the usual variety. Please correct me if I am wrong, but my observations thus far are as follows:
- after going through the only lessons available as a starter member, I am left with an empty website, the 'knowledge' behind researching keywords... and no idea how to put the two together

- Kyle repeatedly says that he isn't going to try and hard sell the premium membership, but you really can't go any further without it

- all the searching I've done on WA turns up affiliate sites, like yours, that are encouraging the reader to sign up

So then, the only success stories I've read - no matter how many there are - are from people referring others to WA, and that's exactly how pyramid schemes work. Yes, I get access to all this stuff for free, with no obligation, but it won't help me make money online until I 'buy in'.
I have a good job, but wouldn't mind supplementing my income to grow my savings to ensure my kids futures. Like most skeptics, I came to see what all the hype is about, but I am not prepared to spend a penny on something I have no evidence will work. I am not afraid to put in the effort - not a damn thing in life is free - but I can't see any real benefit to investing my time here.

Hi Paul,

I think Kyle is best qualified to address your concerns about the actual structure of the WA program, but I can give my personal thoughts on some of the points that you have raised.

Over the last 10 years as a WA member I have witnessed numerous changes, but the biggest has been the cost of the membership. Back in 2006 it cost you $29.99 a month just to get in the door. No trials...nothing. Yet people joined because they wanted to understand how others make money from affiliate marketing, and how they could possibly do the same.

Since those times, many other similar online services have increased their costs dramatically. And let's not forget...there were no groundbreaking discoveries or 'magic pills' introduced by the other services that warranted those price increases. It was a case of..."everyone else is doing it so why don't we?"

Except WA. Rather than join in, they introduced the free Starter membership where people could get an understanding of how affiliate marketing works at no cost. They could create a couple of free websites to get a hands-on feel for the business, which would then allow them to make an informed decision about the Premium membership and taking a big step forward with their potential business. They also got to witness how a complete 'in-house' service works along with live support. All together, the WA package is something that would cost considerably more than $47pm on the outside.

I would prefer to think that this is where you are at right now, Paul. Informed about WA and what you could achieve here.

The other option for you is to continue as a Starter member. This means that you won't have full access to the range of Premium tools, services and support, but as a business, there has to be a point where cost kicks in at WA. Where better for everyone than the point where members have tested the system and can make an informed decision?

On the subject of continuing as a Starter member, many people actually do that. With the knowledge of understanding the business model, building websites, keywords and the importance of them, they can move forward - albeit at a slower pace. But they can do so...and for free.

Regarding success stories and WA affiliates, I can personally assure that their success is not just through promoting WA. I've meet most if not all of them, and collectively you have a group of very hard working people who are successful in wide variety of niche markets across many diverse industries. They have been able to achieve this level of success thanks to what they have learned at WA.

The reason why they (and me) encourage people to try WA? Because we know hands down that what WA teaches, and provides, cannot be compared. We trust Kyle, Carson and WA 100% because they have proved to us that they put the WA members first. That is very rare within this industry, and it's very important to us as business owners.

Apologies for going on and on here (lol), but I am naturally very supportive of WA because of the positive impact it has had on my life. It has required a ton of ongoing effort on my part, but absolutely worth it. I do appreciate how you feel right now, Paul, but I hope my experience here over the years gives you a different perspective on WA and where it can take you.

Respect to you whatever you do from this point, and I wish you every success going forward.

Cheers,

Marcus

Hey Paul,

I just wanted to send you a very quick message and remind you of my Premium bonuses if upgrading is something that you are considering.

These bonuses along with my continued personal support will definitely help to kickstart your business and fast track your online success.

Here they are once again:

#1) Your first month as a Premium member at just $19 ( 57% discount on the usual price of $47)

#3) Affiliate Program Bonanza bonus. If you know which affiliate programs are hot online and where to find high paying ones, you can earn a ton of money. Plain and simple. This bonus is an hour long video walking you through the top techniques for uncovering these lucrative affiliate programs.

That is all for now, Paul, and I hope everything is heading in the right direction for you here at WA. Don't forget to drop me a line if I can help in any way :-)

Hey Paul!

So here you are 10 days into your WA experience and I really hope that everything is going well for you so far!

In my experience it takes a few days to find your feet here at WA, but by this point it generally starts to feel like home. I hope this is the case for you, Paul!

It's also about this time when members start to realize the sheer potential of an online business. I'm hoping by now the foundation of your business is starting to take shape and you can visualize how it will look in the coming months.

Just remember that I am here to help in any way that I can. I've been building online businesses the 'WA way' for over 9 years now and I would be more than happy to help if you get stuck. You only have to shout :-)

Hope you have a great day, Paul!

Cheers,

Marcus

Hey Paul,

Marcus here again, just stopping by to see how things are going with your training here at WA.

I'm sure by now that you have a good grasp on making money online, and hopefully you are starting to lay the foundations of your own online business.

It's exciting, right? To think that you are actually building a business online, a REAL business, is such an amazing feeling!

It's just the start of great things to come Paul, and over the next month you will be developing your site further and all being well, starting to earn from your website (even more exciting!)

Anyways, I just wanted to reach out and offer you some personal help if you are stuck or maybe need a helping hand, Just drop me a line if I can help in any way.

Before I go, I just wanted to remind you that if you do decide to upgrade to Premium, my bonuses expire tomorrow. Please keep an eye on the countdown clock on your WA dashboard if you are considering this.

If you do upgrade within that time, my bonuses will be available instantly.

I really hope you've had a great first week Paul, and do drop me a line when you have the time and let me know what you think of the whole WA experience :-)

Cheers,

Marcus
