Wealthy Affiliate Training Walkthrough
WA Online Entrepreneur Certification Course Review Online Entrepreneur Certification
Overall the Online Entrepreneur Certification Course is comprised of 10 unique Lessons that combine a series of helpful easy to follow videos, examples and templates to get your website built, monetized and published for traffic and making money.
The lessons include the following:
The great thing about the Lessons is they include unique questions and comments from the network of folks, just like you and me, that help clarify points of interest, include attachments for follow-on clarification or checklists to continue to make the steps smoother and the discussion is completely relevant to the training and the stage you are in the learning process. Also, I love that the lessons take the time to ensure you follow through with particular tasks before moving on to the next lesson, for example, reviewing specific articles and case reviews to give another point of view on how something can be done or taking action towards building or improving your website!
The discussion forums are great and responses come quickly from the team, which is terrific when you are on a roll in taking action and need help now. Also, there is a live chat area for getting answers to questions RIGHT NOW versus waiting on a researched answer, if needed.
The site is very organized and user-friendly, which is one of the most important factors in my decision to continue using the resources.

The ninth Lesson for the Level 1 WA Training follows nicely against the lessons and accomplishments you make in Lesson eight. After developing a basic framework for your site and having (at a minimum) your first three pages initially created, continuing to add quality content to those pages and your key themed pages will be key to marketing your brand and your products and/or services. As it is taught, the three major search engines (Google, Yahoo and Bing) actually research the word variations and page content you have when determining its ranking for keyword searches; this is due to many things, primarily because of how people actually search for specific terms and phrases on search engines to find what they are looking for, while weeding out the irrelevant sites.
