Long Story

Kicking off back in the day I was the internet fool buying just about everything that landed in my inbox you might relate, I think to a degree that it is a stage that many of us go through.

So glad that I stumbled across WA.

I was having a tidy up as you do from time to time and came across this little program I purchased way back, didn't even bother to open it up how whacked is that one.
I fired the little " bubba "up, well knock me over with a feather, just complete value, every second day there is new stuff being added just total usable value.

The short story

If you are online like we are as a group then there is so much out there just sitting under our noses that we can use to leverage our positions and create some value from.

How may you ask?

"I am just using this as an example only and I come with a public service warning never follow me anywhere I will just get you into trouble or adventure."

The thing is that when you immerse in this online world and start engaging we start using products and services by default really.
This is so simple, but sometimes we overlook simple........ just by the virtue of using these products or services we develop a familiarity with them and by doing so we become competent users, that alone puts us in a position whereby we can promote that product or service.

Back to my example,It was ticking some boxes
  • It had longevity and legitimacy
  • Checking, it had an affiliate program and usually you will find this info on the home page,top menu or in the footer
  • It had a good commission
  • Best of all it had a monthly recurring.

From using the products and services that we do in our respective businesses we develop that passion for them, it becomes second nature almost

So check it out, to see if they do have an affiliate program if they do they will have sales material which will aid you with your ability to promote. nothing ventured nothing gained.


There is the number one tip and the second one which is equally important. most platforms have some form of tutorials, training or knowledge base. The best place to start is the FAQ, it gives you an over view of where folks are running into difficulties. I see a lot of folks struggling at times with off site platforms that you may be starting to engage with.

"Always check out their training, if you don't you are not getting the best value from the product and in a way you are just letting yourself down."

The Third Thingy

The beauty thing about Wealthy Affiliate is that we as members don't even have to apply to become affiliates, by virtue of being members we are affiliates by default, Our affiliate link is just sitting there waiting for us, if we should decide to avail ourselves of the opportunity.

There goes a Sunday morning read, while enjoying a cup of coffee, I just pinged off a couple of applications took all of five minutes will wait to see what turns up in my inbox.

As always thank you for reading and have a brilliant Sunday when you get there.

" was having a tidy up as you do from time to time and came across this little program I purchased way back, didn't even bother to open it up how whacked is that one"...........Ha Ha, Alex, I can relate totally....... we made the discovery, heard the music of a life changing moment, and ..............

But WA is different ..... it doesn't conveniently stay in the "too hard" basket ... "knock knock", from Kyle, "knock knock" from Carson and "knock knock" from your referrer (hopefully)...............

There seems to be an unfolding process when we come to online marketing most of us seem to go through various phases, that is why WA is so helpful defiantly helps to get many folks on track and that is such an enabling thing.

Time flies by so quickly Katariana what was in the too hard basket, last week even can become this week's new skill.

Chances are you will only see your referrer as you walk through the front door there is something to be said for self-paced learning abundant resources and a supportive community.

Alex - Some great advice in this post. I'll keep a look out for FAQ's and training programs when I get to looking at affiliate relationships for my site. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Patrick, hope you found the post useful, thank you for stopping by, with regard to FAQ's and training I was referring to the training that most platforms have if we use auto responders for example. a lot of us will sign up to use a program but we don't really look at the training that the platform offers, some of which you don't even have to have an account to access.
It was like yesterday I probably spent half the day looking at windows 10, and came away with a new understanding, for the investment of a little time when we start drilling down it is amazing the number of " tib bits" we can walk a way with they can be so helpful productivity wise.
