How WA Can Make You Up To $100K Without Your Site!

Last Update: December 21, 2018

So as many of you may know you can earn some great money running your own website promoting trusted affiliate products. Wealthy Affiliate obviously provides all the great training and tools to do so. I've had a bit of success doing exactly what WA trains us to do:

However I've come to realize that not everyone is cut out to be a business owner. In some cases people just need to come up with income while they are building their businesses. And there may be other reasons why the whole business for yourself route is not feasible at the moment. Either way, it doesn't really matter. A lot of us come into Wealthy Affiliate with a one track mind not realizing the peripheral opportunities that WA provides you. So I've decided to help you see some other multiple streams of income you can gain with your WA skills.

You Have The Skills To Pay The Bills!

When you join Wealthy Affiliate and complete the training, you become equipped with some of the most sought after skills that companies are willing to pay up to $100,000 per year for depending on your location and skill set. Let's go through some of these skills you have or will learn.

SEO

This is basically learning how to make a website friendly to Google and other search engines so that they send it FREE traffic. Obviously as affiliate marketers this is great for our own blogs. But every company wants to get more free traffic to their site. After all it usually leads to more money for them if you can get targeted traffic. As a result of this fact, companies will usually will hire their own in house SEO people or outsource it to an SEO agency.

Fortunately for me, I've leveraged the SEO skills I learned here at WA to do both. I've had SEO jobs with major fortune 100 companies that pay me over $100,000 per year. And I've also provided SEO consulting where I charged over $100 per hour for my SEO advice.

Although I make a full time income with my blog, I'm a bit greedy and love multiple streams of income. So to this day I still make money working with major companies managing their SEO. I get to work from home part of the time and I have a team of SEO people under me. I earn about 6 figures with this role. And I have my blogs that make me a bit more than that. So you do the math. Clearly your SEO skills can be leveraged to get yourself a high paying job while you build your business. Check out some SEO salaries here.


Freelance Writing

If you haven't already noticed, all websites have content on them. Google can't find websites without it. And guess what? Companies need people like you and I to write the content. But nowadays they prefer hiring people that understand SEO to write their pages. This wasn't always the case. Back in the day the requirement would have been a 4-year degree in Journalism or English. But now you will find many websites and companies that are more focused on writers that have SEO and marketing skills. That's a huge benefit for you. It means there are far more writing opportunities that are available to regular folks like you and I. Companies want content that can drive traffic or conversions for them. Wealthy Affiliate literally teaches you how to do both.

There are no shortage of writing jobs on freelance websites, content mills, big companies, blogs and many other places. If you're a writer that knows SEO and internet marketing, you can literally earn hundreds to thousands of dollars per month. I know firsthand because I've spent thousands of dollars every year hiring writers to write for my blog. There is always work available. And if you're good and can secure a few recurring clients or work with a company that has ongoing writing needs, the money you make can be very consistent. That said you may have to start from the bottom and work your way up to making some decent money. But unlike many other type of work at home jobs, writing gigs are available in great quantity.

And The List Goes on...

I won't go into detail about every other opportunity. But here is a short list of other jobs that you can probably secure once you've successfully completed your WA training:

Virtual Assistant

Blog Manager

Affiliate Manager

Wordpress Assistant

etc.

It's The Gift That Keeps Giving!

Ultimately the goal of this article was to give you a different perspective on how to leverage Wealthy Affiliate to make you money other ways. You are not limited to building a business for yourself. Although building your own business should always be your number 1 goal in my humble opinion. However you can leverage your WA skills to help companies with their existing business by working for them as a consultant or an employee.

So a premium membership shouldn't be viewed as a start up cost or a hosting fee for creating a website. It's none of those things. It's a personal investment in yourself just like a college education.

But the big difference here is you won't be putting yourself in thousands of dollars of debt that will take years to pay off. Your premium investment is less than $2 per day, especially if you take advantage of special offers like the Black Friday Sale offered by WA.

WA provides you with layers of ways to make money. And you get to decide how to peel and use those layers to your advantage. Hopefully this gives you food for thought. Yeah I'm on a "roll" with the food puns. lol

No, but seriously, I hope this has article has given you a few ways to look at how WA can help you make money. It may be a useful reference to share with people who may need another way to leverage their WA skills while they get their own business up and running.

Well that's enough yip yapping from me. If you liked the article, feel free to chime in below and share it with others. Thanks for reading!

great post offering ideas on how to make money with the skills we can gain here -- without -- owning a website. Although I would think the expertise of actually building a website or two could only help enhance the resume... cheers! Marc

Agreed Marc. The fact that I actually already had sites that ranked well validated that I knew SEO so even if you're not making money with your website yet, but have them ranking is a good way to prove to others your skill set. And this could lead to a job or freelance opportunity.

Thank you Eddy, a great blog post. I find it amazing what can be achieved through the Wealthy Affiliate training, I believe that in many cases it is much better than a university education, especially those from the UK as you don't need to be very intelligent to go to university! Please don't get me wrong, we still have some great universities in the UK, but they are not all good!

Have a fantastic day Eddy.

You're welcome Roy! I agree about all the amazing things you can get out of WA. It always annoys me when some people just assume that WA is overpriced place to create a website and host it. They belitte all the other huge benefits provided here.

That was a quick reply Eddy, thank you! I hear you big time, I believe that some people just think we are playing and it's just a kind of fun hobby and an excuse to be in front of a computer screen! (I have some very close people to me, who unfortunately think this!) If people understood the power of the Internet and how excellent the training is here at Wealthy Affiliate, they would definitely think differently!

I happen to be on because I'm working on some of my BF promotion. But I can relate to some of your experiences. I remember my friends would give me shit about not going out and staying up all types of hours being online. And I wasn't making a lot at first. And they were like you're not even making a lot. But then when my efforts started to lead to thousands of dollars and they saw my lifestyle changed, their attitude did as well.

It went from what are you doing, to can you show me. Or I always knew you would do big things. Yeah yeah. lol

That's a great comment Eddy, that's almost a blog post in itself, I guess you may have written a blog post on your story!?

I'm so pleased that your hard work paid off Eddy and that your friends can see what you are doing is working, fantastic stuff! It is always so good to hear about people's success, especially online as it takes time and effort to get to that tipping point.

Thank you for being an inspiration on Wealthy Affiliate Eddy.

Exactly Alex. I don't really think many of the members really understand how valuable that skill is the type of demand it has in the work place and just online.
