My first 5 weeks at Wealthy Affiliate!
About three years ago I dabbled in starting my own website. But I had no experience. I had no support. I had no direction. I had no community. So after a month or so I gave up. It became more of a source of frustration than a source of satisfaction. My interest dwindled, I worked on it less and less... until one day I forgot about it altogether.
Fast forward three years. I've quit my job, moved states, bought a new place, decided against interviewing for another typical day job and signed up here, at Wealthy Affiliate. I decided to breathe life back into an old dream. And I couldn't be more pleased! During my time here I've accomplished (what I feel) is SO much! Here I have found support, direction and the most important - community. In the past five weeks I've gained more experience than I really thought possible and made headway with my website that I never really thought I could in such a short time.
And you know what I did? I looked up my old website. And it's still there, chillin out with no friends in a lonely lonely area on the world wide web, where even it's creator had forgotten about it. But that's what happens when you buy a domain, have zero experience, have no idea what you're doing and no one to ask. Shot in the dark, that's what I took. And I missed miserably.
My new website is loads better, more interactive and easier to navigate. I'm building out my social networking (Which I had no idea how to do before) and every time I have an issue -- and I mean EVERY TIME, all I have to do is hop over into the Live Chat. There's always someone there, and if they happen to not know of a solution for my problem, guess what? I just send in a ticket to Support which always get back with me within practically minutes. Here at Wealthy Affiliate someone always has my back, and that's an amazing feeling. A pooling of ideas and experience is always ready to be tapped into.
The training is state of the art - really. I literally feel like someone is taking my hand and just leading me through what would be a maze if I were on my own. And I LEARN, I'm not just following the motions. I can't believe how much information I've absorbed and retained during the past few weeks. I've bought a domain, became an affiliate, posted my first reviews, been indexed with Google, learned about (and used) Plug-ins and Widgets, targeted my audience, linked my website to social media, and literally so much more.
I'm excited, ambitious, motivated, and thankful. Just wanted to share my progress with other members, or those who were considering becoming members.
If you're into this sort of thing but have never really had a grasp on how to go about it, Wealthy Affiliate could just change your life.
