Today, let me tell you a bit more about me.
Who I really am.
Because I believe it will be super critical to your own overall success at avoiding mistakes made by Online Marketers and other perpetrators of affiliate marketing for Dummies in the world of affiliate marketing as you begin to build your empire.
The Good of Who I Am – Local SEO
I am a professional Online Marketer and have been out here making a living since the early 90’s.
Rather than affiliate marketing my focus has been on helping clients with local sites get ranked on the search engines. It has been a very profitable venture for me while at the same time consuming tons of my time.
It is almost like working 2 jobs simultaneously.
There is the client getting part where I pursue the process of finding clients and then the other side is getting the work done. As the workload increases I do outsource certain aspects of my work but it still leaves me being very busy. Too busy.
The Bad of Who I Am – Affiliate Marketing
Which is why I’m wanting to change things.
That is where Wealthy Affiliate (WA) enters my world. WA provides a very workable easy to follow game plan for anyone and everyone that wants to build an affiliate marketing business.
NOTE: What they teach in way of affiliate marketing can also cross over to most any other venture online that includes gaining free traffic from search engines (i.e. Google, Bing & Yahoo) along with social media platforms (i.e. Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest).
There entire focus is targeted to that person who is just starting out in their pursuits of affiliate marketing. They want to learn this craft and they want someone to guide them every step of the way.
Which is good.
But why would that attract someone like me?
After all, I already know 95% of what they are teaching. In fact, I have taught the very same stuff to other people with much success.
For me it is not about what WA is teaching but how they are teaching it in clear easy to follow step by step bite size chunks.
Of course, the bites I’m taking are far more intense than most people. For example, WA has a 10-day free training piece that they provide. What is supposed to take 10 days I crushed in less than 2 while watching every video and reading every word.
The question remains, if I already know this stuff then why do they have my attention.
The Ugly of Who I Am – Time Management
I have had trouble with time management and they have helped resolve that in a way, though my wife would clearly not agree. It might have something to do with the amount of time I’m investing in this process and such is not without validity.
See, I’m doing everything I already have been doing as an Affiliate Marketer. That in and of itself is often more than a full-time schedule. The beauty of working from home is that you are free to do what you want with your time. The ugliness of it is that can mean far more work than what you would do in a regular 9 to 5 job.
And now, thanks to WA I’ve put on top of what I was presently doing an entirely new set of work responsibilities. Someone once said, without a vision the people perish.
I’ve got the vision and I’m not letting go.
Imagine a world where you work 4 to 5 hours daily and then do what you want with the rest of your day. Imagine a world where you wake up to find you earned $100 or more overnight. Imagine a world of affiliate marketing opportunities.
I’m more than imagining it.
I’m taking massive action, because I want it.
Anyone can do this.
It just takes time and persistence to make it happen.
It also takes commitment to work. Right now, I’m producing one new piece of high quality content for this blog daily which includes keyword research, article writing and image optimization.
You don’t have to take things at my speed, unless you want to see fruits of your labor at the pace that I am seeing them.
However, there is another something that draws me to the WA world. This goes beyond their awesome support and high energy interactive community.
The Bottom Line of Who I Am – Shiny Objects
It Is found in the truth that I like shiny objects.
Well, they don’t have to be shiny when it comes to the Internet. They just must be new.
Not new as in brand new out of the box even, just new to me.
When I find a shiny object, I like to buy it and start digging into what it can do for me.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been left wondering why I bought this item because it simply doesn’t work. Often this will lead me to secure a refund and go hunting for a new shiny object.
This is especially true when it comes to training programs like Wealthy Affiliate.
People put out this half brained ideas and expect me to use my whole brain by investing into it. But they don’t deliver. I personally have spent thousands on checking out affiliate marketing training programs but I have absolutely nothing to show for it.
WA is making the difference.
Sure, I’ve only been connected for a short time at this point but the path they lead, the support they provide and the community they have built is like none other anywhere. At least as it relates to my investigation of the matter and you can bet that I’ve checked out many other competitors of theirs only to find them wanting.
No longer am I chasing after shiny objects thanks to WA.
And if I do, then I have a community of like-minded people that I can put a question forward to and receive legitimate answers within minutes. One that invariably finds me keeping my wallet in my pocket.
The Who of You Are – Your Future
So, if you like me have been pursuing the world of affiliate marketing but not achieving the success you thought would be there then I highly recommend checking out WA.
Perhaps you aren’t like me.
Perhaps you’re just looking for an opportunity that makes sense.
WA is for your too, trust me on this. I’ve tried the others. If they don’t work for me as a highly experienced professional Online Marketer what do you think those other paths are going to result in for you?
No matter if you are brand new, come with some knowledge or are highly experienced; I believe WA can and will be the best answer available if the question is how do I become affiliate marketer success story?
The best part is that they will let you test out a major chunk of what they offer without requiring a dime from you. Then you will be able to grow from there.
But that isn’t all.
Because of the way that Wealthy Affiliate is built, I personally have a vested interest in helping you to succeed. If you have questions, I and many others will be more than pleased to help you with them. If you have trouble, I and many others will be more than pleased to work with you through them. Simply put, I and many others have got your back when it comes to achieving and receiving the success in affiliate marketing that you seek should you choose to move in this direction.
Others have done it and stayed for years.
I just did it and am not looking back.
Now it’s your turn to do it.
The question is, how bad do you want it with it being an affiliate marketing money machine building for you while you spend time elsewhere?
Don’t get me wrong, it will take work and a lot of it.
It will also require persistence and consistence but the WA world is here to help you with that should you choose to take the plunge.
In closing, know this, whatever you decide it will be the right decision for you.
WA isn’t for everyone.
Yes, anyone can do it, but that doesn’t mean everyone should.
They did and are happy.
I did and am happy.
Your happiness is up to you, what will you do with it?
