Recently I became a 'member' of an online community; let's be honest, at first the first word to really grab my attention was 'FREE'. They represented that membership was free, training was available (also free), opportunity and direction for a free website was also offered!
Naturally, this sounded way too good to be true; I was convinced it was some sort of elaborate 'scam'. Being the inquisitive person that I am, needless to say I investigated. To my most pleasant and grateful surprise....they are real! They are valid!
Wealthy Affiliate (WA) is the most remarkable networking site that I have ever seen for affiliate marketing (although all principals can be applied to just about any area!) You can sign up for free, in fact you can remain a free member forever if you so desire! There is a free 'training course', there is access to a multitude of relative information; there really is a free website that you can set up for yourself through WA with use of their hosting as well! I was, to put it mildly, knocked off my feet!
During my first week after signing up for free membership, I was highly impressed with the quality of information offered....valid and extremely useful information, not only for affiliate marketing but for any online business-type activity (even if you applied it to selling your own handicrafts, etc.). There are written lessons backed up with videos.(Quality stuff, I might add!)
Do you know what else? I started to receive emails for WA to see how I was doing, invites to specific blogs, updates on when there was any activity (much along the lines of Twitter or Facebook). I received emails just to ask how I was, not pushing anything/just asking how I was doing. Other members made contact and I made several good networking friendships almost immediately!
During my second week, I upgraded to 'Premium Member'; you get more options for your websites (also the number given), additional training is made available, general opportunities are of course bigger, etc. Let me repeat, you don't have to be a 'Premium Member' to benefit from Wealthy Affiliate (WA); taking the time to look it through, I found there are a small multitude of 'free' members who have belonged for quite some time who are thrilled with Wealthy Affiliate (WA), the help received and successes realized!
Please, whatever you do, take a few minutes (compared to a lifetime, it is truly not so much to ask...is it?)...check Wealthy Affiliate (WA) out for yourself! Let me know your comments....I truly would like your feedback on this one....click on this: Wealthy Affiliate (WA)
