How I'm finding Wealthy Affiliate
Success is no accident. ...
I truly believe nothing is impossible. This is what spurs me on through whatever hardship, disappointments and trials life has to throw my way. I can see the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. That's me in a nutshell.
I have reached a stage in my life where I'm more determined than ever to pursue a project that I've embarked on and not to drop it after a few months just to move onto the next on, once I'm back in the mood again. I've just not been very passionate about any of them until now.
Trying affiliate marketing a few years ago, the course I purchased walked me through building the website to function and look identical to the one displayed in the course. It taught me how to add affiliate links and where to look for product categories etc., but in the end I gave up because I just didn't have enough information to succeed at it. There were so many pieces missing. I then tried selling on Amazon with the assistance of their Fulfillment Centre but that was a total disaster. I didn't quite follow instructions for purchasing a test product so it didn't sell very well. Bought too many of them and wasted a lot of money and rather than carrying on, I knocked it on the head.
Affiliate marketing and setting up a website to attract interested customers to purchase through my links, have appealed to me from my very first endeavor with affiliate marketing, so a few weeks ago I googled to see what training was out there for me to have another shot at it. I was very close to parting, yet again, with my hard-earned cash because they sold their training very well, but decided to see what others had to say; there was bad reviews about it every where and people went as far as calling it a scam; as part of one of the reviews, Wealthy Affiliate was recommended instead. When I researched it, all the remarks were very positive, so I decided to give it a go, not knowing what to really expect.
The community is amazing
The first thing I noticed when I signed up was surprisingly how much information and training was given away, including the free websites. I have been on many online training courses and have never come across one such as this. The community is amazing and so are the owners. Once I had dug into course 1, on the second day I decided to purchase my own website and to go premium. I took advantage of a very big discount by taking up the annual membership offer and have peace of mind knowing the training is paid for upfront for the year.
Although writing this blog post was the second task in course 2, I had to leave it until last because I have never written so many blogs in my life(the first time to be honest), I needed a break and this one is the easiest by far. The blogs on my website called for some type of strategy and organization. I will be starting course 3 once this blog is completed, which I'm thoroughly enjoying writing.
I have accomplished more than I thought was possible in such a short space of time and feeling quite professional at the craft even though I know I haven't even scratched the surface yet! I'm filled with enthusiasm; the extensive training and abundance of support has played a big part in this.
I'm powering through and can definitely see myself being fairly successful in the area of affiliate marketing if I continue each day working hard towards this goal, learning and applying what I have learned.
