Target Audiences for Wealthy Affiliate

When you sit down and think about all the people in the world that would like to make more money, you could pretty much include just about everyone.

Every person from every little corner of the population could use extra cash and that is really the target audience. So in essence, your target audience consists of the close to 7 BILLION people that live this world, 3.4 of them have high speed internet and would love to have access to a platform like Wealthy Affiliate.

That is a pretty MASSIVE target audience, so within this tutorial I am going to give you a hand with some more targeted examples of audiences and show you exactly how to break them down.

Pretty big and pretty broad right? That was intended to prove the scale of the market that you can promote to, and within this section we are going to explain smaller more niche target audiences and also let you in on some ways in which you can research and market to these audiences.

When many affiliates begin to work on their keyword and industry research for Wealthy Affiliate research, they typically think of the most obvious marketers that are highly relevant to the services offered at Wealthy Affiliate. The main audiences that come to mind are:

  • Making Money
  • Work From Home
  • Internet Marketing
  • Affiliate Marketing

  • Email Marketing

These are fine and they are definitely targeted, however marketers typically run into a wall when they attempt to promote WA under these keywords as they are very competitive. They convert, but they are competitive.

So if I understand this correctly, I write blog posts on my website using the key words and Google will notice and rank my posts in their search engine. Is that correct? Is using keywords in the title of the post enough or should I pepper them throughout the post content?

Hi, Grant!

That's right. Use your keyword in the title of your post and again in the first paragraph, but don't over do it. Targetted keywords are like hot sauce. A little will enhance the flavor, but too much spoils the dish.

Google penalized "keyword stuffing." That is just what it sounds like. The best policy is to use your targetted keyword in the title and again early in the post. That will satisfy the search engines.

Once you have a keyword in the title and early in the post, write for the reader.

I've been with Wealth Affiliate over a year and only got the upgrade three or four days ago. My procrastination has been at a all-time high lately. It took me spending the money for the upgrade before I could get focused.

Now I see what an incredible resource I've been missing out on this whole time, PLEASE, DON'T BE LIKE ME!
Kettei Premium
Totally feel you, dude.
I joined a year ago and did nothing.
It was only when I subscribed 2 days ago that I started to take action - just being able to talk to the community here makes such a huge difference!

Everytime I click on links that says make money online, it turn out that they are the ones making money online by offering something to me. At first with free offers and the I have to upgrade with additional upsells. plugins. Everyday we are bombarded with ads in social media.Lots of videos to watch every day. Almost everyday. there is a new program, new plugins,new software.Information overload.

Yeah, I have had that same experience. With that in mind I am coming at this from another angle. My blogs and articles will actually provide valuable information necessary to start an online business, however they also will promote an easier way for folks who do not have endless time to spend getting started. That's where I will promote WA.

I will guide them to the affiliate boot camp. Because it is free I will not be pulling a bait and switch. After all the object here is to make money online and if one follows the affiliate boot camp to the letter one will make money.

Having two Esty shops already that are generating sales, I know from experience once one realizes they can make money, that it is not just fluff, their entire perspective changes. And with an introductory offer to go premium for only $19.00 for the first month giving them the full benefit of all the tools and collective knowledge here at WA many will go for it.

Just using the Key word tool alone is worth that, not to mention web hosting which on average cost over 100 per year if you have WordPress service with it. I especially will be promoting the support one gets here. I know of no other quality platform that will guide one through the process of starting an online business that is both affordable and all encompassing.
