So. I signed up for the free membership about five days ago and completed the first course pretty quickly. I've said this in some of the comments but will do so again: I am normally such a cynic about these things. I don't believe there is any success in life without hard work, yet if you Google around about affiliate marketing, there is so much promising you a quick buck, by selling 'systems' that will allegedly guarantee you $$$ or £££ within a very short time.
It was obvious very quickly that WA is not like that at all. Having such an active community, with prolific postings by long time members who all repeat that making money in this sector is possible, if you do the work reassured me that this website is for real. That and the genuinely helpful and informative training videos I have worked my way through. I know a little about building websites etc but to have everything explained so methodically is such a benefit.
I am so looking forward to getting on with the rest of the training and getting my first site going :0)
