About LesBlythe
Joined August 2018
Hi, I’m Les Blythe, Founder and Owner of Les Blythe Digital Marketing. LesBlythe.com delivers my full-time income now, so I'm looking to get back into affiliate marketing as well.

I say "back in" because I dipped my toe in the water a couple of years ago. I made a few commissions, my biggest was $750, but I needed a more sustainable income, more quickly, so I turned to freelancing and built LesBlythe.com.

With that business established and generating income, I can now turn my attention back to affiliate marketing and build a long-term, more passive income.

My current plan is to document my journey on freelanceyourfuture.com and use that as my affiliate site.

I come from an IT background and have worked for IBM, Fujitsu and Xerox in the UK. I spent my time in Sales & Marketing roles as a customer-facing Account Manager.

I was still employed by IBM (UK) when I moved out to South Africa and liked the place so much, I decided to stay. The rest, as they say, is history.

Hi!! Welcome to WA Premium. The information available here is never ending!! And the training is Incredible!! Gobble it up!!!

Follow that training! I can not stress this enough. Do not skip around. Do the lessons in the order in which they are. As well as the tasks that follow each of those lessons.

Go at your pace. Slow and steady is my new rule. You'll find you can't wait to learn more in the following days. I did.

There were a few lessons that I had to watch twice. If that's what you have to do, do it!

And soon you will have yourself an awesome website. Amazing direction, and the tools that you need to succeed in whatever it is you want to do!

You go do this, for you!!

Be awesome!! Be amazing!!! And be successful!!

Hi Les,

I'm glad you made it! After you begin to see the powerful tools, training, and remarkable opportunities available here, I know you will be glad also.

Your first task will be to pick an affiliate niche you are interested in. That just means you need to decide what your blog and online business will be about.

To help you out with that, I created a short eBook called 659 Profitable Niche Markets. You can read it here:

https://purrpowerbooks.com/659niches/

Just click the book cover on that page to start reading. You will also find a short video there on the "Big Picture" of affiliate marketing.

Of course Wealthy Affiliate covers those topics also. The eBook and video are just a bit of extra help if you are interested.

The WA Affiliate Program

Wealthy Affiliate gives you everything you need to succeed as an affiliate in your area of interest. Beyond that, you can also promote Wealthy Affiliate as an affiliate:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/share

With a strong recurring commission structure, and a product that people love, this is a dream affiliate program that you now have access to as a Starter Member.

Although it is worth noting that the commissions are double for Premium Members, so the premium upgrade is worth considering for that reason alone if you decide to pursue this aspect of Wealthy Affiliate.

If you are new to making money online, it will take you awhile to fully appreciate everything that Wealthy Affiliate has to offer.

If you have been struggling to get things working with your online business, then be prepared for some "light bulb moments" as you go through the training and begin to understand how the Wealthy Affiliate platform can accelerate your results.

I suggest the following steps to get started:

1. Complete your profile with a brief description of your goals, and of course with a nice photo of your smiling face! This makes a huge difference when interacting with the community here.

2. For a quick look at how easy it is to setup your first website (which is the basis for any online business), I highly recommend you take a look at Kyle's excellent video on creating your first website right here within Wealthy Affiliate in under 30 seconds (yes, this really is possible!): 3. Complete the free training lessons and videos to get started with your first niche website.

GETTING YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED

The fastest way to get your questions answered here at Wealthy Affiliate is to take advantage of the live chat and the question area at the bottom of each training module. There are many members here willing to help out.

These ways are faster (than asking an individual person) because you are more likely to connect with people that are actually online here at WA at the same time you are asking your questions.

Even before asking however, the search bar at the top of every page in Wealthy Affiliate is great for finding answers. That is what I use the most.

WA has been in business for over 10 years, so almost any question you can think of has been asked and answered already. The search bar is great for finding those answers,

Have fun in your first few days at Wealthy Affiliate!

Brad
