My Road to Affiliate Marketing

My Road to Affiliate Marketing

For those of you who do not know about Affiliate Marketing let me start with a quick explanation because it is a simple and easy way to make money online.  You need no products to sell and you never ever have to talk or see the people to sell the products to them.

What you do need is a website, and for someone who knows all the ins and outs to teach you what and how to do this.  Now why in the world would I put a website on the internet and share all this valuable information with the world?

Going to totally be frank with you here 90 to 95% of people quit before they even get started and the next 3 to 4% quit after they work at it for a couple of months meaning that only maybe 1 to 2% stick with it and actually are making money online with affiliate marketing.

This is what made my choice to affiliate marketing simple once I hear these statistics meaning there is plenty of room for me to make the type of money online that most only dream about!

On this website you will find not only how and why I got into affiliate marketing but other topics to help you decide if it is right for you.  Most people are so skeptical they do not even think that this is but I have even given updates to all the things that I have been doing over the months since I became a member.

I really wish you would stick around and read some of the articles that I have placed here to try to help those of you who are broke, without jobs, wanting extra income, or wanting to make money for the future.  Thank you for coming by and please stick around and enjoy the reading.

Sorry, but this article was written 7 months ago and I added this whole top part to let every one know that I am serious about trying to make you life better.

How I Found Wealthy Affiliate

Now let me tell you a little about my journey to Wealthy Affiliate.  Like I have stated before, I wanted very much to be an Internet Marketer but had no clue where to begin or what to do.  I went on Google and entered Affiliate Programs and stumbled (and I mean stumbled) on the Wealthy Affiliate link.

Opened it up and started reading, “Right it is FREE to join???” I say to myself but proceed to sign up.

And once I did I found myself on an actual website for Wealthy Affiliate WOW (and all for FREE).  Now I decide to start the training and see what all is involved, in proceeding through the training you will find that as a FREE member you can actually build two FREE websites and have them hosted on the internet for FREE.

But there are limitations to what you can use as a free member so I decided to compare the cost of Premium Membership to the FREE Membership and found a world of differences, what they offered as a paid member is very much more involved for setting up websites, domains, and hosting.

They teach you everything you need to be successful in the online world.  Does it happen overnight can you just push a button and instantly cash starts rolling in???

No way but you will learn how to make money the honest and real way online.  With how I found Wealthy Affiliates you can too but here I take the time to show you what is possible with them and that I am proof positive that they work.

Right now they have a promotion going on you can get your first month for ONLY $19.00!

Update on How I am Doing

Well, today marks two and half weeks since I became a member at Wealthy Affiliate, and I must admit my learning has brought me a very long way.

But I still have a long way to go, in this time I have managed to build (3) three websites.  Now I know people would think wow that is great, but even though I have them built they must be indexed by the search engines for people to actually be able to click on them and view them.

This process takes time which people who want to start an internet marketing business have no clue of.  All those people sending you those buy my click a button and start making 100’s or 1000’s per hour/day even while your sleeping are not real, they are a waste of your hard earned money.

I have tried a few of them and when I received their instant access had no clue what to do they were so complicated that you would have to be able to be a computer programmer to figure them out.

Also, how do you make any money online if you do not have your own website to promote?  This is the one thing they let out of all these programs “You must have your OWN website to get anything accomplished on the internet!”

Now not only do you need to build your OWN website, but you must also have a domain to attach it to, and you need to know how to submit it to the search engines and pay for hosting on them.  When you get to add up all these costs plus what you have already paid for the Push Button System, hope you have a ton of money to invest.

Now I am not a super intelligent person but by my joining Wealthy Affiliate I have received training on how to build a website, free domain (which I can change to a purchased domain when I am ready), been taught how to add my website to the search engines, and there are no charges for hosting!  How can anyone ask for more?

So this is my post for today be back again soon to keep everyone updated of progress I am making.  And if you should have any questions you can drop me an e-mail at

Since I have updated this article please I would love to hear any comments, suggestions, or questions you might have you can leave them in the space provided below, I do reply to them all.

Thank you for stopping by and please read on this is the real deal no kidding,

  1. Just like you, I was very much driven to learn online marketing so that I can build an online income. After losing thousands of dollar to scam products, I was about to give up until I came across a posting on Facebook. That fated click brought me to the Wealthy Affiliate community and after building my first free WordPress site, I was sold. It was way easier than what I’ve paid in the past. I’ve been a member since 2014 and have never looked back.

    • Cathy, Thank you so much for going over my website, I want to encourage people to not be fooled by all those other programs out there and lose money.  Here at WA there is an honest place to build an actual business IF you are willing to work for it.  So many do not understand what goes into building an on-line business because of all those scams out there, and do not let me forget we now have FREE YouTube training, but it lacks so much. Once again thank you and please visit any time.

  2. Susan,
    Really great to hear of your experience with Wealthy Affiliate. Your enthusiasm for WA comes shining through in your posts!
    My path to Wealthy Affiliate began in the spring of 2017. I had read Tim Ferris’s book “The 4 Hour Work Week” and was very inspired. After doing further research I discovered affiliate marketing. After even more research I discovered WA and have never looked back.
    It is certainly a slow building process but in my opinion that’s really 1/2 the fun. I’ve not made much $$ yet but am really enjoying the process. My website is nearly a year old and gets about 2K visitors a month. To me that’s exciting!
    Thanks for the great post,
    Mat A.

    • Thank you Mat A. it is fantastic to hear from another Wealthy Affiliate member.  People need to realize that this is the real deal no join and get rich quick scam.  They have the highest level of training and if you come here it is for the long haul to make an income for yourself for life; it is all in what you can do for yourself to make the money.  Congratulations on 2K visitors a month that is something to be very excited about.  Thank you so much for visiting and please come back any time.

      Susan 🙂

  3. My road to WA was similar. I just literally stumbled over in on Google because I was in desperate need of an extra income. And I was very happy to join. The journey, which started back in October 2017 has been great and I am looking forward to many more years, and of course financial freedom.

    I see that you put up 3 websites. That is very much and would definitely be too much for me. You need much passion and lots of time to manage three websites. Once you will be into it for longer, you will see how time-consuming it can be, especially if you don’t outsource. Wish you success with it.

    Wish you a great and wonderful journey at WA,

    • Thank you for your feed back Oscar, I have so much time I am retired and this is my passion.  In the future if I become successful enough yes I would consider outsourcing but I love doing my own work so probably not because it keeps me busy and focused.  Good luck to you and I wish you all the success I am going to find at WA.
