Another Affiliate Marketing Program- A Bit Leery

Last Update: June 22, 2018

I am a skeptic when it comes to things on the internet. I like to think I'm fairly smart at spotting scams. Despite that, I ignored my gut feeling about an affiliate marketing program and joined anyways. It didn't take long to realize it wasn't going to do anything other than make them money. I couldn't get any access to their so-called training unless I literally spent thousands of dollars. The money I had spent was just to view some videos explaining all of this to me.

In the process of searching on the internet to find out how I could contact this company to get a refund, I came across someone's site promoting Wealthy Affiliate. I started reading about it and went through tons of comments on the page.

I continued to do searches about Wealthy Affiliate and was very intrigued by everything I read. After just having been scammed, I was very leery to try something again. However, I had such a desire to work from home and because I could sign up for a free account, I decided to give it a shot.

From the moment I logged in to WA, I knew there was something completely different about it. Not once did I feel nervous that I was being taken. I was amazed at how nice and helpful everyone was. In fact, the Facebook style platform was probably what sold me before I ever even started the training. Having immediate access to real people who could answer questions and help with issues really built trust.

Within a day or so I decided to go premium. I figured if I was going to do this, I wanted to do it right and have access to everything there was to offer. I don't regret doing that at all! I have been thoroughly impressed every step of the way.

I will be starting module three tonight and have learned so much. Kyle and Carson have planned out every single step needed to make an online business successful and to train someone who has zero experience.

I have found my niche (homeschooling), created a website (The Unexpected Homeschooler), written several articles that have been published on there, and am learning the reasons why social media followings are so important to getting a site ranked.

I truly look forward to doing the training or working on content every day. I am excited for the next three modules and can't wait for my site to get ranked and some action to start happening. I hope that my site starts drawing traffic in the next month or so to be able to start adding affiliate links that will create an income within the next six months to a year.

Thanks Kyle and Carson! You have made a believer out of me.

My wife and I homeschooled our two children. They are grown now, we found it helpful for me to see them because of my shift work.
Enjoyed your prospective of why you joined WA.

Once you get your site going, make sure to apply to - they do very well for blogs about homeschooling.
