I’ve Been with Wealthy Affiliate for 11 Years!

Last Update: March 22, 2018

11 Years as a Wealthy Affiliate member.. where has the time gone! WOW..

March 22nd 2007

On March 22nd 2007 I was looking for a way to supplement my income and by chance I found Wealthy Affiliate. At the time, it was simply a paid forum along with amazing courses on affiliate marketing.

Today, as you an I know... it is so much more (weekly live training, one-on-one training, tools, hosting, domain purchases etc.) and can’t imagine being without it.

A Heartfelt Thank You

I want to say thank you to the founders of Wealthy Affiliate and the great friendship we have developed. From bumping into Carson at Costco for the 1st time to wearing Faux Fur Coats with Kyle in Las Vegas.. everything in between and ahead is awesome.

Here's to another 11 years!

Awesome. I have noticed a few things about those that succeed (I.e, The most successful ones) at WA and with the Wealthy Affiliate method.

1) They all work hard and persistently take action and put out fresh new content regularly week after week month after month and year after year.
2) All long term members, mostly 4/5 years plus at WA.

I've noticed the same thing, Derek.

They successful ones are the "never quitters", the "always do-ers", and, for the most part, the most knowledgeable folks in our WA community.

Congrats to you...you have learnt alot and developed a great set of skills I'm sure.

Would you like to share your top 3 tips ???
Also, where do people generally find the best success... is it the MMO niche / Amazon / non amazon / clickable products vs physical products???

I have yet to join clickbank and jvzoo and I'm not sure if people have more or less success with them. Any feedback is appreciated. ..

Congrats again
