My Experience With Wealthy Affiliate . Is It Worth It? YES !
I am always telling others that there is NOTHING out there that comes close to Wealthy Affiliate … and for good and verifiable reasons.
I have been a member since June, 2014; I had read a blog by one of the members and was so impressed that I had to check it out for myself. Let’s backtrack to some history …. Prior to joining WA, I have lost upwards of a few thousand dollars on false promises by products and sites that ensured success. Did I learn? No; I just kept thinking I had not ‘done it right’ or had picked poor products, etc.
In frustration, I started a few websites without an ounce of knowledge … guess what happened …. I spent money and got nothing in return. I joined memberships that promised to help, but only sucked fees out of you, promising if you bought into their expensive system there was no way you could lose. Sure, you made meager sales but if you made an honest list of all the time, effort, advertising, fees, upgrades…you were running at a constant loss and they were always demanding more/more/more ….. I quit.
I left my websites alone and started a few free blogs; it was nice and I had a decent following but did not know ‘what to do’ with that following so that they would stay. Visitors came and went; hardly any stayed on loyally. Profits? Ha! I still have a copy of the $ .04 commission check I received … my ONLY payment. I quit …. again.
Back to Wealthy Affiliate; as I said earlier, I came across an interesting blog by one of WA’s members. His article hit home because he shared his previous failures, his progress because of Wealthy Affiliate…what it is and what it does. The big selling point was the free websites with free hosting…with no time limit.
Since the day I first joined as a free member, I was welcomed and given all the help, training and support I needed to create and publish a website. There was training on what you could do with your website, how to monetize it, how to write content, etc. An offering came to become a premium member at a great savings; I jumped on that opportunity and have not once regretted it.
Wealthy Affiliate is above the rest in training, in support, in improvements, in EVERYTHING. Since the day I joined, they have made continual improvements and offerings to its members. Did I mention one of the most impressive aspects? THERE IS NO SPAM ALLOWED AT WEALTHY AFFILIATE. This was exactly what I had been searching for …. I will NEVER quit again!
Is it worth it? YES! Do you have to do anything? YES! Understand, these are your websites, nobody writes or advertises for you. These are just a few of the skills you acquire here; there is not enough paper to list it all down.
I heartedly recommend everyone out there to accept this challenge; join for free and see!
