A starter Wealthy Affiliate member can start each training with no credit card required. It is a week's test drive taster to assess whether the platform can meet their individual business needs and objectives. They have full premium privileges. Once the seven days over, communications with the platform will cease. Their free siterubix subdomain will remain valid for six months, and they can stay a free starter for an indefinite period.

Your utmost strategy is finding the will and balance, doing training appropriate for your business needs, objectives leading to your success. Knowing your target audience is a crucial strategy to being an outstanding affiliate marketer. It is choosing the best suitable option and seeing it through, completing all training phases. The aim is to finish the entire thing, complete every step, and focusing on one niche, one site at a time. When your site starts gaining traffic and traction, leading it to become an authority and in receipt of payout commission, you may indulge in the other training and build another.


Please keep in mind that the Affiliate Bootcamp is harder and more competitive to follow through; if you want to make money faster, it is better to start with your own, i.e., the OEC.

I think everyone should do both

Hello Geoffrey and thank you.
I advice doing one or the other. My calculations show if you are writing three articles a week and provided you have the experience and expertise follow through reviews you need no less than two years give take to break through. But a lot less and more profitable if following the right OEC niche with the same amount of posts, you would be ranking and making money a lot sooner. With my current situation, I am stuck on finances and therefore upkeep of my subscription fees is a priority. I understand each person situation or circumstances are different. But there is sensibility and strategy and we must wise how to follow the correct path to success. You see everything must be studied and analyzed in great detail to arrive at a fruition prize.
Wishing you well, a terrific day and weekend.
