Hi All

My name is Michael.

It’s been some time since I have started exploring the possibilities of creating an online business. And I have come a long way.
I really took the bull by the horns, went all out and didn’t let go.

I’ve invested time and money on my education, and there is no turning back. LO:)

There is nothing better then investing in oneself.

When it comes to Wealthy Affiliate, I have very mixed feelings:

On one side: WA has started me in the right direction...
Before I came to WA I didn’t really know about online business and the affiliate business model, and going through the initial basic training here has given me a clue.

It gave me a basic idea, showed me technicalities, and gave me enough to understand that online marketing is a direction I want to pursue.

However, as I progressed with my training, I realised that
WA can be a TRAP!

I realised that most members that hangout to long with this program, don’t really care so much about creating a business.
They are more into socialising and keeping busy.
They kind of feeling at home here,but never go beyond their comfort zone…

Whenever I criticise the site, immediately the members stand up to defend it… LO:) They get so emotionally involved…

The thing is that the only ones that really make money within this community are the founders.

I would be surprised if more then a handful of members here(out of thousands) actually manage to create their own online business, and pull in a full time income only from what they have learned here.

It looks like the aim of this community is to keep you busy and broke…(this business model is widely practiced on the internet)

Going through this program you get the feeling that you’re getting value(there is some value here... But not as much as you're led to believe).
You’re busy building your website, doing SEO socially engaging. Everybody is supporting each other, There is a good support system by the founders to technical issues…etc…
You manage to rank on Google, have little successes that make you jump with joy.
When you work on your site, you stay very busy. It gives you a sense of accomplishment…

The model here says:
Find a niche an interest you’re passionate about(If you don’t have one then promote WA)
Build a website, tell people about it.
Attract visitors
Earn revenue from affiliate products you will sell on your website. (Nice in theory… and in the beginning of the internet era, but o untrue in reality).

Be busy stay broke….

It's not enough to be busy with things, you have to do the right things!

If your aim is to make money, it’s not enough to have a niche you’re passionate enough. You want to find a niche that makes money…

No doubt that the founders here know about marketing and are successfully implementing their know how.
They also have picked a great niche. The most successful niche on the internet today. (information, and education for home based businesses)

But also, there is no doubt that it’s not like they say that all you need for your success is here on WA!(This is very misleading!!!)

For example; The Amazon business model: If you manage to sell Amazon products related to your niche, you’ll make 6% commission… So IF you do finally make a sale You’ll make Pennies.(statistically most people never buy the first time they see an offer- it takes them 7 visits at least)…

People that are searching for Amazon products will go straight to Amazon, why do they even need you?

If you’re searching for branded shoes, you’ll go straight to the brand, or to a reputable site.

Why will anyone come to your site to buy? and if they do come, your site is probably not that great at this stage, and most will abort within seconds… It takes a lot more then you are made to believe…

Most successful stand alone sites, are businesses that are treated as businesses, i.e. there are whole teams involved(and aren’t a one man operation), and the strategies are very well thought of.

The truth of the matter is that to really succeed online you need to gain a lot more knowledge, and join forces with a lot more successful marketers, spend a lot more money on developing your site and your business,
and on driving traffic to it.

Thinking you’l be able to get all you need here at WA is going to limit your success, or even worse, make you quit before you really give it a go.

Use this platform to get a bit of technical knowledge and support, and move on. Don’t get stuck and fall into this trap.

You have to venture out of this community if you’re looking to be successful online and make money.
That’s of course if making money is your goal…. Is it your Goal?

This is my 2 cent input(or $1,000 input…LO:)

Anyhow: I wish you a lot of success.

I welcome your comments, and look forwards to connect and help you whenever I can.

Feel free to PM me anytime.

Excellent, I know you will achieve your goals. As you start seeing more progress and results, you will be able to spend more time on your business. When I started out online, I had limited time because I was in school full time and I was able to achieve “full time” status within the online business world in a year. I know you can do the same!

Take action on the training here, immerse yourself within the community, and ask for help when you need it. This is your sure path to your own personal goals and successes.
