About DBlanchard
Joined January 2016
Hi, My name is Denis Blanchard. I have been studying for ways to make money online for quite a while now. I had great ideas at first, but I quickly realized that there are no magic buttons, no getting rich overnight (even though there are a lot of schemes and/or scams out there claiming that they can).

This is how I found WA, I was skeptical about one’s claim and found it while reviewing it on barenakedscam.com. Well at first look WA seems pretty amazing. I am willing to work and learn so I believe I am at the right place.

Update April 2017:
After being a member for a while now I can honestly say that I truly believe that I have found the one and only place on the net that has a community feeling and that is genuine to its mission: to help people start and grow an online business. People here all have the same goal and help each other like no other place that I know of. WA rocks!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update April 2018:
At the end of January 2018, I decided to join the SAC (Super Affiliate Challenge) and I am so pumped up!

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/super-affiliate-challenge-12-month-intensive-training

I am proud to say that after a little less than three months, my new website is coming along pretty good! Not as fast as I want since I still work at my 9 - 5 full-time job. However, my plan is that I will be able to update my profile one day soon saying that I am doing this full time.

I made my first sale at about 2 and a half months after starting the SAC training and applying it to my website.

All this to say that it is proof that dedication, hard work, and persistence will prevail! You just have to believe!

Thank you Wealthy Affiliate and the whole community!

Update April 2019:
Working part-time at this is NOT easy but it is very rewarding if you stick to it!

As of April 1st, 2019, I have managed to write 126000 words which makes up 8 pages, a couple of landing pages, and 72 articles, which is not a lot, but it's what I was able to do with the time available to me.

I have managed to build an email list that I have accumulated by offering an ebook and I use Aweber as my email autoresponder.

My Social media presence has helped increase my traffic, and most of my social media referral traffic is from Pinterest and Twitter. I have not been able to get Facebook going as much, and this is something I will work on during the next year.

My organic traffic (from search engines) has increased exponentially in a year.
I have a bunch of articles that have made it to page one of Google and the result is I am getting more and more referrals.

However, because I can only work nights and weekends at my online business, it will take me longer than someone who works at this full time but I am confident that I will cross the finish line, but probably like the tortoise and not the hare!

Which is fine by me. :) I am looking forward to retiring from my full-time job (A few years to go) and this will be my full-time hustle.

We all have different paths to follow and mine is to create a solid online business to fall back on when I do retire (probably sooner than later if things keep on going like they are).

All I can say is that Wealthy Affiliate works!

All you have to do is apply what you learn here and never quit! You will get there eventually!
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

PS Even though I let my first niche on the side, for now, I will be getting back to it, because of my time restraint, I need to concentrate at one project at a time!

PPS If you want to communicate with me, just send me a PM. I am always available to help! I have nothing to sell, I just want to pay-it-forward and help like I was helped when I first started!

And don't forget to have fun while building your Online Business!

Money Goals
My goals are to develop a passive source of income so that I can live my dream of having "time freedom". I have been working a 9 to 5 job for way too long and I strongly believe that the Internet will provide me with the means of "making it" from my home office instead of that daily commute.

I am sure you can. Many WA members have achieved it and I do not see why you can't. I have the same goal as you, and I do not want to work for someone else for the rest of my life, you never know when they will stab you at the back. It is always nice to have something to fall back on. Keep it going!

Cheers!
Jack

Hi there. I do know WA is legit. I researched several other affiliate marketing training websites, and this one is the most comprehensive and community-oriented you'll find out there.

Internet marketing is one of the best ways to make money. If you look at most websites, they're all affiliate, with links in and around the content. Just get started, and know this will take some time and work. Nothing is overnight.

Wishing you great success here,
Kammy

Hi Denis,

Your situation sounds so similar to when I was in college, I tried for ages to look up many ways of making money online while I was studying but found it hard as there were so many scams floating about and I couldn't find anything trustworthy or affordable. I too found a review which lead me to find this platform and I must say I'm glad I've joined.

Thank you for the follow and I wish you the best with your journey!

Thanks for the follow and I am glad to hear others share my feeling of being in the right place after joining WA. The people here have been incredibly supportive thus far and although I have just begun to tap into what is available, to hear people like your self that have been here for a while claim the same thing definately gives a feeling of confidence. Thanks again.

Hello, please to meet you and thanks for the follow. I was pretty much like you looking and searching for a good company to teach me about making a business online and affiliate marketing as well as making an income. I was enroll in a couple programs with some doubtful reputation organizations that thanks to barenakedscam.com find out on time were no good and withdraw from them.Later on I came across with WA and search and heard were and are pretty good people and have a fantastic set up and programs. So like you I believe we are at the right place.
I wish you great success in your journey and best regards from tropical Costa Rica.

Hello DBlanchard... I am inspired by your profile, with your two year badge! I appreciate your follow, as I will follow you as well. I just recently received my six months badge with Wealthy Affiliate. I know I have learned a lot starting without any affiliate knowledge or experience. It can be done!

I would be grateful if you could give me some pointers on my website, just when you have the time. I need some mentoring of where I am in the realm of progress, and I open to any constructive suggestions you may have. I had rather someone tell me like it is, so I can make the necessary changes and go from there. Thanks again for your follow... Clay
