How To Use Wealthy Affiliate - A Guide To Getting Started
Getting the most out of your Wealthy Affiliate membership
After writing an article about getting started with Wealthy Affiliate on my own website and the experiences that I went through, I was asked by several members for some advice on the best way to progress. Although everyone’s experience is different and some people may want to take a different route, I would just like to share some of my tips for progression.
You are only human!
Firstly, we are all human and there is only so much that we can do in one day! I can’t count how many times I have witnessed people becoming frustrated because things aren’t happening quickly enough. Building a business anywhere and on any subject takes time, simple as that. It takes time to learn the methods and techniques needed to build a profitable website and it takes time for the search engines to start taking notice of you. The training within Wealthy Affiliate works, I can say that with 100% certainty. If you follow the training carefully then you will have as much chance at becoming successful online as the next person.
Don’t get distracted by rank!
The Wealthy Affiliate rank is something that tends to distract a lot of people. I believe that the ranking system within Wealthy Affiliate is an excellent idea, but you have to understand how it works. Getting a high rank within Wealthy Affiliate is an indication of how much you put into the community and how active you are within the community too. As a beginner who is looking to make a profitable website, the last thing that you should be worrying about is your rank! Your rank within Wealthy Affiliate will increase naturally as you take part in training, ask questions and create blog posts. Maintaining a high rank within Wealthy Affiliate takes time and effort, perhaps time that would be better spent creating your online business.
See the training through to the end!
One of the most important things that I think most newcomers need to focus on is the Entrepreneur Certification course. This course has everything that you need in order to set up a profitable website, no matter if you are a free member or premium. It doesn’t matter if you have had experience previously as an internet marketer, my advice is that you should still follow EVERYTHING within that 10 part course. I am an experienced affiliate marketer with quite a few years of experience and I still found things that were new to me. Don’t think that you already know it all, take the time to go through the training. Getting something wrong here could cost you in the long run.
Choosing your niche
This is a big one! Lots of people have great problems with selecting the right niche. If you are a free member and you don’t know what I am talking about here, just keep in mind that this is a really important decision. Selecting the niche that your website is going to be based on, is a really important part of creating your online business. In the past I have made mistakes in this area and I have spoken to people here that have done the same thing! Don’t choose a niche because you think it will be more likely to make more money. Your decision should be based entirely on your interests and whatever your passion is in life. Kyle does a fantastic job of explaining the process of selecting a niche within the training. Take notice of this section and take your time when making the decision!
Choosing Your Website Name
No matter if you are a free member or premium member, selecting your website name is crucial to the image of your website. Again, take your time to make this decision. A good website name should be totally relevant to the niche that you have chosen as well as being short and easy to remember. Whilst Wealthy Affiliate provide you with two free websites, I recommend purchasing your own domain as this looks more professional in my opinion.
Creating Content & Expanding Your Website
By far the most important part of being a Wealthy Affiliate member is to learn from the training courses and put the training into practice within your own website. As you will learn, creating content is a crucial part of building your online business. The more content that you create the better at creating content you will become. After some time, Google and the other search engines will start to take notice of your website and you will begin to climb the ranks of the search engines. The key to building a successful online presence is consistency. Once you start building your website, continue to expand your site on a regular basis, this is what will help you gain trust within Google and will in turn lead to a higher volume of visitors.
