Hi, My name is Denis Blanchard. I have been studying 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 well! 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 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!

Update April 22, 2020:

With the COVID-19 making things uneasy outside, I was able to get things going inside, especially with my website.

April 2020 has been my biggest month so far: I have doubled the amount of traffic and email subscribers and more than tripled the number of referrals in a month (And the month is not even over yet)...

I was able to keep up (somewhat) with my writing but not as much as I would have wanted (of course, I say that all the time…). Last summer I did some renovations around the house and my website suffered (from not taking care of it for a few weeks) a few months later…But I managed to bring it back to normal by the end of the year.

My biggest challenge for the next year is to create videos for my YouTube channel. I haven’t had the guts to do it yet, but it’s in the planning stage right now (I even have a script written out to do a custom sign up video, I just need to figure out how to edit videos now…)…By doing so I know my traffic and referral will grow even faster. I have seen many Super Affiliates making it BIG with videos, so I will follow their lead.

As I said earlier, my situation is not like anyone else’s. We all have different paths, different goals!

I often see on live chat new members asking how long before they make money. My long answer is this: It depends on how much time, energy, and most of all PERSISTENCE you are willing to put out!

Persistence is another word for Faith!

Have faith in what you do, and it will become a reality. Some will get there faster than others, but that’s ok!

Stop comparing your results with others, instead compare it to your months and years past and realize how much you have grown! That is the way I keep going!

I will now leave you with one of my favorite quotes from one of my mentors (Bob Proctor) and it goes like this:

“Instead of focusing upon money, put your focus upon serving a purpose that will benefit many others and success will follow”

Have fun, create, and take fearless action until you win! :))

Update April 4, 2021

What an amazing year this has been! My income for the past year has finally broken the five figures! Still not enough to replace my current 9-5 job salary but a genuinely very nice sideline :))

Traffic is constantly increasing and my articles end up on page one of Bing instantly. Google is a little harder, but an incredibly good percentage of my articles ends up on Google’s page one, hence the increased traffic and revenue!

But this is just the beginning, I am still small compared to others. However, everyone has their own path to follow, and I am doing what I love so I will fire my boss sooner than later if things keep on going the way they have been in the past year.

My advice to anyone reading this: DO NOT QUIT! Keep on pushing forward and it does happen! That is the law!

Keep on believing in what you do!

There has never been a better time to take advantage of the ever-growing market that is the 3 BILLION people using the Internet. There is enough room, and the market is big enough for everyone!

Stay Safe!

Peace! :))

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

PS 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!

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

Hey Dennis,I see here I have to upgrade to access certain things, especially the training and asking questions, but my problem is that I'm so broke and its been some time like. I was happy that I have found something that would improve my situation but now the stumbling block is that I'm broke and I'm very mush interested in doing this program. Can I ask for someone to help me please I'm desperate. Thank you.

Hi there Jeffrey. Listen! Don't worry!

You do not have to upgrade yet! You can start the training and get up to 10 lessons for free. It depends on what your goals are.

You have the choice to start the Online Entrepreneur Certification if you have an idea on a niche (something that you can easily promote and talk about) or if you don't know where to start you can go and take the Affiliate Bootcamp and learn how to promote Wealthy Affiliate itself. Or you can do both!

Both courses will let you do all the 10 lessons in the 1st course for free, that should be enough to get you going.

You can also create 2 websites that will be absolutely free for as long as you want.

If you ever decide to upgrade to premium, these websites can easily be transferred to a ".com" or ".net" or whatever you chose for a minimal price of about $14 a year. In the meantime, they will be hosted on the Siterubix platform and will be like this: Yourwebsite.siterubix.com.

I hope I have eased your worries! Go and start the lessons, they are very well done and you will be able to get started right away!

And again, don't hesitate to contact me anytime you need something. I'm here to help my friend!

I will copy this post on your wall also so to make sure you get the message :)

To our success!
Denis

Very inspiring bio!
I'm slowly making my way through level 2 - kinda feels like walking through mud at times. However, when I read stories such as yours -especially when I'm feeling a little overwhelmed - 'm convinced WA is the way to go.
I wish for you much continued success here at WA!

Helo Denis,'
I enjoyed reading your profile and I felt the love and the positive vibes. I just started WA recently. I quit my 9 to 5 job and I started a new career as a Life Coach. Something I always wanted to do but didn't have the courage to step out of my comfort zone. It takes time to start making a living from coaching and I wanted to do something while continuing doing coaching and WA is the perfect place. I was stuck in the beginning. I couldn't choose a nice beside coaching and one day I got inspired and now I am so exciting about my niche. Doing research and writing blogs. Its CBD. I contacted 2 companies and applied for their affiliate programs and they both accepted. I will start when the website is ready.
A new happy chapter started and it's fun and exiting. I moved out of Tokyo after 30 years to a beautiful place right on the beach. We can see Mount Fuji and the sunset from the terrace.
Good luck Denis,
BTW, what is your niche?

DBlanchard Premium
I started with a meditation niche about 2.5 years ago, but did not develop it very much, I procrastinated a LOT.

You can check my profile on the bottom right for the URLs, and in January started the "make money online" niche promoting WA.

I wish you good luck in your new adventure, my friend!

Thank you Denis
I was also looking for a niche related to spirituality and meditation was one idea and the Law of Attraction was another one but I opted for Coaching and CBD. Actually I came cross WA while I was looking for a way different from SEO to promote my Life Coaching website. www.your-dreams.net. I changed the hosting to WA platform and all the settings, the theme and plugin, setting were lost. Now I have to rebuilt it almost from scratch and I am learning how to use WordPress. I will be a WordPress pro by the time the website is back lol.
All the best to you my friend, I will be following you and
Logve and bliss
Adel
