My Journey at WA Part 1
Hello everyone, This is just the beginning of my journey into Wealthy Affiliate and I wanted to give you a preview of what you can expect and how I am doing with the community at WA.
Is WA Worth the Premium Membership
Now I know everyone who has been ripped off by those get rich quick push button scams is thinking this is a total rip off signing up at another Affiliate Marketing site. I am here as proof that it is not.
My very own website which was totally free to build has now been indexed on Google as of July 27, 2018! I have done it, in 23 days how is that for some proof that this program really does work?
Was it easy, NO it was not, was I confused and frustrated, YES I was, but did I manage to do it, YES I did?
What Does It Cost to Open A New Business
One of the questions I see in Live Chat; which is FREE for the first seven days when you join as a free member, and is available as paid member always 24/7 is: “How long before I make money?”
This is a question that is very hard to answer because if you have ever started a REAL business of your own, have you sat and actually calculated how much start-up costs are going to be?
Let’s just say you want to start a Dog Kennel Business, keeping dogs while people go on vacation or travel for work. You, first of all, have to be licensed to start your business to care for the animals properly in my state this is an 8-page application and cost is anywhere from $100 to $250.
Now you have to make sure you have enough property to house the dogs and take care of them; outside runs, inside kennels, proper bedding, this all takes more money and on average cost runs into $10’s of thousands of dollars.
You must carry insurance to keep from losing your business which can cost upwards of $1,000 per year. Have a veterinarian on call should any of the animals in your care become ill. I could keep going but I could never afford to open this type of business and seriously did not do a lot of research on it but you are understanding what type of cash you have to hand out to build the business.
This would have probably been the type of business that I would have started if I were younger and had the capital to invest but alas I was not born with a silver spoon in my mouth. Now once you do have everything built and ready to open you then have to add advertising to your costs, I have a little bit of background with advertising and it does not come cheap, plus you need to build up trust with people to run this type of business after all they are leaving their fur baby in your care.
How long do you think it will be before you actually see a profit from this venture? A year, two years, three years, it is not going to happen overnight.
How Long Before You See A Return
At least with Affiliate Marketing and at WA, you have a possibility of seeing something rolling in after you have put work into it for 6 months to a year.
And your cost depends on if you want to stay a FREE member or upgrade to Premium (Premium is where I am). I did show a break down on this on my other post “My Road to Affiliate Marketing“. Look this is what I have dreamed of for a long time and possibly you are looking for something that you can do from home in your spare time to build your retirement or supplement your retirement earnings.
Why sit around and be bored when you can open your computer, laptop, tablet, a smartphone from anywhere and do a little work and who knows possibly become quite rich doing something that you can do in your spare time?
Best of all the cost of your first month is ONLY $19.00 that’s right only $19.00, after that you are charged $49.00 monthly or yearly for only $359.00. The yearly membership breaks it down to only $29.92 per month nice savings there.
Can I Really Do This
When I first got started I was so excited that I spent all my time in front of my computer working and learning following every single step by step video; while I had the video playing on one screen I would be on another doing each instruction given because I did not have a clue what I was doing.
Can anyone do this YES, do you need experience NO, all you need is time and the willingness to work at it. If this is working for me and, it is; then it will work for you also.
