Introduction to Wealthy Affiliate:

me-on-graduation-day

My daughter and I on Graduation Day from Full Sail University!

I would like to preface this review with the fact that I have been doing Internet Marketing since 1999 and graduated Valedictorian from Full Sail University with my Bachelor of Science Degree in Internet Marketing. I share this with you because I want you to understand that I know a few things about being online and how the Online Marketing world operates.

My time at Full Sail University taught me so many things about the Internet Marketing world and I’ve been able to use the knowledge I gained from there every day since I’ve graduated. I have no regrets whatsoever about taking on student loans to get my degree but the one thing I wish I would have done sooner was to take a better look at Wealthy Affiliate.

I’ve experienced many training platforms, many scams, many “How To” guides, many self professed gurus and it’s in going through all of this that I can give you an honest review of Wealthy Affiliate.

    I am a member of Wealthy Affiliate as well and my biggest worries when I first got started was that there would be a bunch of Gurus. And you are right Carson, Kyle and everyone are just regular people who are willing to share their knowledge. When ever I got stuck or confused someone was always there to help me and they never made me feel stupid. No Gurus here. This was a great article. I’m glad I found it.

      Thanks so much for stopping by Wendy and reading my article. I’m so glad you commented and was able to share your experience with Wealthy Affiliate also. I think one of the things I love about it is that no one is made to feel any less than another. We all bring something to the table and it’s very evident in the way we get to share our knowledge with others. From the blog post, training, live chat and forums, everyone has something to offer and having that opportunity to share your strengths is something that is lacking in all the other communities. Looking forward to seeing you around in WA.

    Hey Audrey, one thing I love about WA community is that I get to meet a lot of people that share a common interest.
    It is reassuring to see that an experienced IMer like you is finding a lot to learn and apply to your existing business.
    It is inspiring and motivating.
    Can´t wait to continue!!!

      Oh Emma do I know what you mean about having a group of people with the same interest. It is a wonderful community for sure! One thing I’m realizing more and more is the things I didn’t know. lol There is just so many aspects to Affiliate Marketing but once you grasp it and start seeing the fruit of your labor there is a new sense of excitement and an unstoppable attitude that takes hold. I’ve seen that in you and I know you are going to have great success at this!

    Hi Audrey;
    As one of the new 2013 members to Wealthy Affiliate, I have to agree with Wendy and Emma’s comments. But most of all, I wanted to commend you for the great work I have seen you do this year. Your reviews are spot on and honest. I would tell anyone who was looking to learn about internet marketing, and how to make money online to follow you as someone who will always steer them right and give them the honest truth. The community of WA has opened up so many things in my life: I thank God and everyone involved for guiding me in this new direction.

    • Audrey April 11, 2013

      Thank you so much for those kind words Jim. That just made me smile. 🙂
      I’m still blown away by the amount of people I have met that are always willing to lend a helping hand within WA. It truly is a place where a novice and seasoned professionals can help one another no matter where they are at in this journey. I think one of the greatest assets Wealthy Affiliate has is giving each of us the opportunity to share our knowledge with others while strengthening our weaknesses by learning from each other.
      Thanks again for taking the time to read this review and commenting. I’m looking forward to watching you grow and succeed as I have NO doubt whatsoever that you will.

    Hi $47/month does not equal $359/year; so, I was wondering if that is an error or is it actually cheaper to pay in full? Of course, paying $359 is a steal and a massive reduction should that be the case. THX

    reply
    • Audrey October 29, 2013

      Hey Sharon, you’re absolutely right, $47 x 12 would actually be $564 but you nailed it. If you pay for the year you get a cheaper deal and only pay the $359 a year, a savings of $205!! What a great catch! Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to clear that up! Have you had a chance to sign up for the Free Trail?

    Is this yearly option offered during checkout? Also, I have a website with SBI, they are very good but I’ve earned very little. I don’t think it can be transferred so I’ll have to copy and paste each article and rebuild, what do you think?. It makes sense to try WA since I can have as many websites as I want for the same price. Also, I love WA video structure and its friendliness. What about my present logo etc, can it be uploaded on to a WA platform?

    reply
    • Audrey October 29, 2013

      Sharon, yes, this yearly option is offered during the checkout. For those that start on the monthly and decide to go yearly later it’s very easy to do that also.
      WOW SBI. I have not heard that name in a long time. I really liked SBI and what it did teach me long ago, nothing like Wealthy Affiliate but definitely some solid training. I don’t remember but do they let you have your own domain name or is it a subdomain? I’m not to sure about how or if you could transfer but I do know that someone within Wealthy Affiliate will have the answer and probably have done it before.
      I know that duplicate content is the biggest No, No in Internet Marketing so you definitely want to do everything possible to get it transferred over and if you need help I can help you with that. 🙂
      I actually have an account at HostGator where I have some of my sites hosted before I found WA but to be honest with you, all my new sites are hosted at Wealthy Affiliate because it is soooo EASY to set everything up. Plus it’s nice being able to have as many sites as you want. As far as your logo you can definitely bring it over to WA because they use the platform WordPress and every WordPress template allows you to upload your own logo.
      So are you on WA? If so I’d love to follow you and watch your progress.

        I do believe it’s my domain with SBI. Is it your own the domain at WA? I wouldn’t have duplicate content, I’d transfer my domain and cancel SBI. Then I’d reload my content – this is the bit I won’t like doing because it will take a lot of time. Before seeing WA, I was thinking about scrapping my site – it’s too bigger niche (dogs). But, my content is good and it would be a shame to scrap it, especially if I can set up other websites with WA as well. I’d rather it sit their doing little in WA and partially forget it. I could then start another website with a smaller niche.

        reply
        • Audrey October 29, 2013

          Yes, it’s your own domain name or you can have free ones to check out different niches before you actually purchase a domain name. For instance I have a site through WA http://hellokittyiphone4case.siterubix.com/ that I put together in less than 5 minutes. I have not done anything with it yet but when I get some time I want to optimize it and see what sort of traffic I can get to it. I definitely wouldn’t scrap your site. I know you can grow it and it’s good that your site is established already in the Search Engines. Wealthy Affiliate will help you take your site to the next level and start making some money from it. I have several sites I’m making money from so I’m super excited about that. I just need to dedicate more focused time to each of the sites. I started with so many niches that I didn’t focus on any particular one and that really set me back. Take it from one of probably hundreds/thousands of people that have done it, focus on one or two niche sites and work them till you start seeing some progress.
          Let me know if there is anything I can help you with or if you have any more questions. I’d be more than happy to help you in any way I can.

          Audrey 🙂
