WA Got Me a Job Today!

Last Update: March 03, 2016

I Was Hired Today! And It's All Thanks to Wealthy Affiliate!


Today I was accepted for the position of Blog Editor for a large website. It seems like a perfect fit for me, and I am over-the-moon excited to get started!

Six months ago, though, I would not have been able to do this job. Heck, I would not have even been able to apply! The job requirements include all of the following:

- knowledge of WordPress

- ability to use plug-ins

- understanding + using affiliate links correctly!

- understanding of SEO + keyword usage in blog posts

- sourcing images to use in blog posts

- hyperlinking images + optimizing for SEO

- scheduling content + social media posts

The only reason I know how to do ANY of these things is because of WA! If I had attempted the test assignment they had me do without the knowledge I've gained here, I would have been so baffled! But because I was familiar with all of it already, it was a breeze! I got 90% correct on the first try.

I even gave you guys a shout-out in my application letter, which probably didn't hurt my chances... ;)

I am also enrolled in a course for online business, where I am actively learning WordPress and keyword research for SEO, along with other related topics. I have the benefit of all the course resources as well as their knowledgeable community.

You never know where this training will take you!

These skills are invaluable in so many different areas. Even if you find that Affiliate Marketing may not be 100% right for you, keep learning. Don't give up. There are so many opportunities that can arise as a result of this training.


The only downside to my new job is that I won't have as much time to spend on my business and other projects. I have a lot of ideas that I want to work on, and I'm not sure how much time this will take up. But I won't know that until I actually begin the work. It seems like something I will really enjoy, so the rest I will just have to manage the best I can.

Here I go on my new journey! Wish me luck!

Hi Jeremy,
It has been a while since I wrote this, but it continues to be my most popular post ever. The support I have received from this community is amazing, and I thank you for that.

Things have shifted a lot since then, and while I don't have this job anymore, it did open up a whole new avenue of possibilities for me. And all of it has started with the foundation I built here at WA!

If you would like to read more about what I'm doing now, I wrote a post about it here: Thanks for the follow, I'm following you back as well. :)

Breanne - that’s awesome!

I am kinda of wanting to do the same here in engineering consultant on data center as i am an expert for critical environment but i don’t believe this type of content can monetise.

Not sure how to start with my own niche so that’s why i can’t share my blogging journey that much but just focus in reply posting.

Could you share any experience for my area of niche as mentioned i am working on this field for quite a while and hoping to get monetise by writing something.

Don’t know how to lay it out and most of all not sure what are the keywords that can help me to get into higher SEO.

John.

Hi John, thanks for the comment.
It sounds like you are in a similar boat to the one I found myself in.

I'm going to look into posting more information about this in the near future, as long as it doesn't go against WA rules to do so.
I've had many great opportunities opening up since I discovered this new mindset.

We have all heard of the Law of Attraction, I learned it under the term "Reticular Activating System". Just by me becoming invested in thinking about writing, blogging and building monetized websites I have found opportunities finding me. I am now focusing on the offer to set up all the online and social media marketing campaign for a medium sized US manufacturer selling globally.

My niche site is going to suffer for a short time but this new opportunity is lucrative and I am still able to do it from home on my own time line.

Yes, it's per post. I keep a log of all the posts I complete and submit an invoice at the end of each pay period. Technically I'm a freelancer because of that.
