The Reasons I Joined Wealthy Affiliate
I got serious about starting a small business online after I was promoted to a C-level position at my workplace.
That's when I realized that my opportunity to achieve financial, time and geographic freedom has finally arrived.
You must be wondering why do I need to find an alternative income when I was already earning a 6 figure income in my country?
To tell you the truth, working in a 9 to 5 job and let my time be controlled by rules created by other people is not what I want in life.
Neither do I like to be involved with office politics that give nothing but more stress and sleepless nights.
However, there are times when you just don't have a choice. I am sure most people can relate to what I am trying to say here.
I knew it's time to start searching for the right affiliate marketing program to start a small business online on the day I received a higher paycheck.
Initially, when I signed up as a free Starter member with Wealthy Affiliate, I only watched a few training videos and didn't sign up as Premium member immediately.
The decision to pay for Premium membership was only made after 6 months when I have time to log into member's dashboard again.
The 2nd time I logged into Wealthy Affiliate, I stumbled upon so many success stories of existing members. This motivates me to give Wealthy Affiliate a try.
Seriously, I never bother to read through reviews on the web about this program before I pay.
During that time, I only have one thought in mind, that is “If I don't try now, I'll never know how these people make money”.
I just have to start somewhere.
That's how quick I make the decision to join premium. Since then, I never looked back.
Seriously, I never pay a single cent out from my pocket to Wealthy Affiliate. All my membership fees were paid for using the money that I make after learning from this awesome community.
To learn how I managed to do this, you must continue reading. I'll share with you methods that I use other than those taught inside Wealthy Affiliate to start making money.
What is Wealthy Affiliate?
After being with this awesome program for some time, I finally understand all about Wealthy Affiliate including types of training, tools, resources and support provided. There are just so many things to explore inside here.
So what is Wealthy Affiliate about?
Wealthy Affiliate is a program or should I say a community of helpful business owners helping each other to start and grow a small business online.
Inside this program, you can find everything from A to Z about strategies to make money online.
This includes training to build a niche website, how to rank on search engines, pay-per-click advertising, social media marketing, create a YouTube video, start eCommerce & dropshipping site, and ultimately make affiliate commission.
Like most program that focuses on a particular strategy, Wealthy Affiliate also focuses on one strategy, that is to make money online by applying niche marketing strategy.
If you are not familiar with niche marketing, it is about how to identify a profitable niche, create content surrounding that topic on a website, drive traffic and finally promote affiliate products to make money online.
Here are simple steps taught inside Wealthy Affiliate to start a small niche business.
Decide a Niche
A niche is a distinct segment of a market, in other words an “audience”. You can choose a niche based on your interest, passion or something that you would like to learn about.
You don't need to be an expert to become one. As you go along learning about the niche that you choose, gradually you will become an expert.
The 3 evergreen niches that are proven to be extremely profitable are health, wealth and romance. Don't ask me why but these are based on statistics provided by global experts.
Build A Website
After you have identify your niche, then is time to start creating a website that corresponds to your niche.
Inside Wealthy Affiliate, you can easily create a website using a tool called SiteRubix. You won't believe me how easy it is to create your own website with just a few clicks.
You can start to build a website for free now if you want to try out yourself.
Once you have setup your website, then is time to start driving traffics to your site with either free or paid traffic method.
Free traffic methods include applying SEO strategy to get ranked on Google, getting social media traffic, email marketing, participate in forum discussion, guest blogging or answer questions inside Quora.
Paid traffic on the other hand is pretty straightforward that is to buy advertisements. These include buying search ads from Google Adwords or Bing ads; place Facebook, Twitter or Instagram ads; buy solo ads; or advertise through display networks.
All these can be learned inside Wealthy Affiliate.
Yes, this is the last step taught inside Wealthy Affiliate. That's to make money online.
Other than teaching you how to find and promote profitable affiliate products from Clickbank, JVZoo, ShareASale, Amazon and Commission Junction, you are also taught on how to register for ads network such as Google Adsense, Taboola and Mediavine to make money when people click on your ads banners.
By following step-by-step lesson taught inside Wealthy Affiliate, you will be able to earn passive income and achieve financial freedom without the need to pay for advertisement, that's provided you consistently take action.
Here are some screenshots of member's achievement that make me push that “subscribe premium button” and start my business with Wealthy Affiliate.
I hope these successes can motivate you to consider starting your first small business online with this affiliate marketing program too.

My Real Case Study To Make Money With Wealthy Affiliate
So now, let me share with you how I make money with Wealthy Affiliate other than promoting affiliate products.
As I continue to work on my blog, people whom I know from my workplace started to acknowledge my authority as an online marketer.
They knew that I am able to build a website, manage Facebook pages, send out monthly newsletters and create content by writing articles.
From there, they started to invite me to share about ways for small businesses to sell their products online.
Gradually, I also started to make money by providing the following 3 services to local small business owners.
- Build a website
- Manage Facebook pages
- Create email auto-responder
These are all simple skills that you can learn inside Wealthy Affiliate. But you will be surprised to know that these are also the skills many local small businesses are lacking and willing to pay others to do it.
So what have I done to get their attention about my newly acquired skills?
In fact, I just did according to what was taught inside Wealthy Affiliate except adding the little thing called “COURAGE”.
I bet if you are still working in a 9 to 5 job particularly if you are in a senior position, you might consider twice before sharing about your “part-time” business, right?
For me, I do things slightly different.
I dare to share anything that I've published on my blog on all social networks, where people surrounding my job industry can access. This is because I believe things that I shared will add value to them.
I am NOT afraid of letting people know that I am starting from scratch to build a small business online.
I am also NOT afraid to openly compete with those young graduate or junior executives in this domain where I might not be doing better than them.
Neither am I worried that others might perceive me as “incompetent” because I knew so little about online marketing despite I am at this C-level position.
I just don't bother how other people perceived me because I know how much I am worth.
I guess by having COURAGE to share about things that I believe in, I managed to get attention from people in my industry and start making money delivering these 3 marketing services.
Unlike what is taught inside Wealthy Affiliate asking members to promote affiliate products online, what I did extra was just to identify 3 online marketing skills that I've mastered, and provide as a service to local companies, then make money.
Not only did I capitalize on the skills learned and resources inside Wealthy Affiliate, I also capitalize on my existing industry network to build my business. Like what I've mentioned earlier, to build a real business, you need to capitalize on all assets that you can find.
I knew it takes time to build a profitable business blog that can generate passive income, therefore in order to strengthen my authority within my community and at the same time pay for my subscription fee, I decided to offer my services to local companies.
However, this is never my long-term plan. It's just an ancillary income that allows me to build up my savings while striking the right time to quit my job.
Now, I am starting to see results from earning affiliate commissions. That's why I am able to quit my job in another few months time without the need to find another job.
I suggest you to do the same and start learning from Wealthy Affiliate while you are still receiving a stable income.
Remember, raining days happen anytime, therefore having alternative streams of income is important regardless of what position you are in now.

Thank you for your interesting article on Wealthy Affiliate.
As a premium member at Wealthy Affiliate, I can vouch that their training programme is second to none and will provide any marketing novice with the key tools to build a fully effective website. You are correct though that affiliate marketing is a business and as a business you should explore as many revenue streams as possible to grow your business, good luck!
You are right. As an entrepreneur, we need to be creative and not solely doing the norm. Now I started to explore other products to promote beside Wealthy Affiliate. Few that I found that can help people grow their business and make more money are Stack That Money, CB Passive Income, Sqribble and WP Profit Builder. You might want to check it out.
Wow, it seems fun how one can make money online from skills you learn online. I just joined Wealthy Affiliate a month ago and I am in level two of the training, so I know nothing about Email Auto-Responder and managing Facebook because I have never created one. I am super excited with the opportunities that comes with the Wealthy Affiliate Training.
Would it be wise to create an Email list for my website before completing the training?
I am going to create my first ever Facebook Page today, though I don’t know how to go around but I am sure has that training also
Thank you so much for such a comprehensive article
I highly encourage you to start your email list when your website is live. I am sure you’ve heard people saying that the money is in the list. It’s true. Having a list is just like having powerful asset in your business. To start building a list, you can try to use capture page creator like WP Profit Builder and email autoresponder tool named AWeber. Both are proven tools to effectively build email list.
Thanks Florence, that’s a lot of information. You’ve mentioned that you’ve made enough to cover the costs for your program membership, how long did it take you to do that after you joined? Do you have any screenshots of your commissions? I would love to see and certainly want to check it out for myself.
I started to make money affiliate commission 2 months after joining. As for the 3 unique ways, the business came in after 6 months. And I am still doing it now. Here’s story on my first affiliate commission.
Thank you for sharing your 3 ways to make money applying what you learned at Wealthy Affiliate. I am also a premium member of WA and have built two websites in different niches. But because I am working a 9-5 job, I sometimes find it difficult to balance my time between my websites and my day job, especially in times when I have to extend my working hours.
Managing Facebook pages? I’m not sure that’s something I want to do. With creating an email auto responder, I haven’t tried it yet and I don’t think it’s something I’m skilled to do, at least not yet. But I have actually thought of building websites for small business owners. If you don’t mind me asking, do you have these websites you created for your clients hosted at WA? If so, how do you charge them?
And by the way, I want to share WA with my friends in the Philippines but as we know, the starter membership is not offered. So I will be checking out your post on how to do this.
Hi Alice, it’s in fact very easy to create email autoresponder. You just need to have capture page creator like WP Profit Builder and email autoresponder tool like AWeber. I believe Wealthy Affiliate teaches this too. For website, I will let client choose where to host. But of course if they prefer cheaper option, then I’ll host inside Wealthy Affiliate. Normally I’ll charge around $800 to $1,000 for a website with 5 to 8 pages whereby text and images will be provided by client. This amount will only include one year domain and hosting.
