When the word Best is used to describe anything, it should mean something extraordinary. The training I am about to disclose to you in this blog post is indeed extraordinary. It is wrapped in a platform that has evolved since 2005 into the most comprehensive Affiliate Marketing training system in the world. I advise you to read this to the end to truly get the picture of the power that is available for you to create your own hugely profitable online business.
You can join for free to check out the site and access the beginners lessons right away. No credit card required. All you need is a valid Email address. You can stay a free member as long as you wish. I want you to evaluate the platform first for free to see if this is right for you.
However, if you want to access “The Best Training In Affiliate Marketing That Turns Beginners Into Pros”, you can elect to become a Premium Member later for only about $1 a day. Other companies that do not come even close to what is offered here, charge upwards of $1000 a year to subscribe. And Wealthy Affiliate has NO costly Up Sells like you may have experienced with others
This article is an overview of the complete Wealthy Affiliate Platform. It is made up of many key elements that when out together is bigger than the whole. You can access these various elements by clicking the title or the graphics of each of these elements. For example, the Dashboard is the first element. The others are: Training, Website, Live Events, Keyword- Research, Affiliate Programs, Live Chat & Help Center.
Your Wealthy Affiliate Dashboard is the starting point to everything a student of Affiliate and Online marketing needs.
This incredible platform is available in 143 Countries. Currently it has over 1.5 Million members. Although the training is focused on Affiliate Marketing, the principles taught and the tools provided can be applied to any kind on online business.
I’d like to show you my personal dashboard where I can access all the resources critical to become a really good Affiliate Marketer.
Let’s review what we have here. This Program is aptly called Wealthy Affiliate. It’s goal is to help as many of its members achieve the wealth they need, by equipping them to create their own online business using the training and tools provided.
Each member has a profile page that can be accessed by clicking our picture in the top left.
8 tabs in the left margin are the core areas if the platform. I want to briefly review each of these tabs in more detail to show you the value available on this platform.
The Dashboard is the page shown above. No matter where you are in the platform, clicking the Dashboard will always bring you back “home” to the above page.
The top black horizontal area as well as the left margin always is present when other areas of the platform are open. Questions can be entered into the horizontal window at the top and answers will always be given.
Each member has a profile page that can be accessed by clicking the picture in the top left. Of course, the member needs to enter the appropriate information to complete their profile. You can access my Profile by clicking the following image to see what I mean.
The pencil icon is the pathway to the areas where we can write content.
The W with the numbers highlighted in yellow shows the credits earned. These can be exchanged for requesting site feedback and comments.
The $ icon leads to the Wealthy Affiliate links.
Wealthy Affiliate offers its members the opportunity to qualify to an all expense paid trip to Las Vegas every year. The plane icon shows the number of Wealthy Affiliate sales necessary in one calendar year to qualify.
Notifications are accessed via the bell icon.
Private Messages can be sent via the envelope symbol.
There are more functions that the Dashboard provides but for this brief introduction these are the main ones that I wanted to inform you about.
The two core training areas are the Online Entrepreneur Certification and Affiliate Bootcamp areas shown below:
The Online Entrepreneur Certification training consists of 5 lesson Levels as follows:
- Getting Started
- Building Your Own Traffic Producing Website
- Making Money
- Mastering Social Engagement
- Achieving Maximum Success Through Content Creation
I shall be going into more detail of the training in a future blog post. But for now I want to show you the details of the Getting Started Level:
The Affiliate Bootcamp training consists of 7 Phases as follows:
- Getting Your Business Rolling
- Content, Keywords and Conversions
- Giving Your Site Social Value
- Get Visual, Get Aesthetic, Get a Brand Through Medis
- Knowing YOur Audience and Catapulting Your Referrels
- Bing, Yahoo and the Power of PPC
- How To Scale Successful PPC Campaigns
To give you a glimpse of the details in Phase 1, check out the 10 lessons below:
I hope you can see the depth of training that awaits you when you register as a member of Wealthy Affiliate. You may be pleasantly surprised to learn that you can only join for free to evaluate the platform before you make the commitment to become a Premium Member. However, as a free member you do have access to the 1st series of 10 lessons as shown above.
These lessons will teach you how to construct a website using the very popular WordPress website building tool. Once constructed, you can publish them on the SiteRubix site and have them hosted for free. More details to follow next.
In this area we can access everything necessary to create your marketing website.
You can see two of my websites that are in progress. I purchased my own domains through Wealthy Affiliate for $13.99 a year. However, when you initially register as a free member, you can use the SiteRubix Domain and select your own sub domain title and have up to two websites hosted for free. Once you have your own domain, the process to transfer your website data is an easy process in the Wealthy Affiliate Platform.
In the first website I am developing Blogs posts to market a number of affiliate programs, starting with Wealthy Affiliate. The second website focuses on my specific niche, the legal field.
Wealthy Affiliate sells Domain Names to its members and hosts up to 50 Domains that are included in the membership fee.
There are 7 main tabs on the left that lead to areas that help you create your websites as well as accessing site support for any assistance needed.
- Site Manager
- Site Builder
- Site Domains
- Site Content
- Site Comments
- Site feedback
- Site Support
All these 7 functions will be examined in more detail in a future blog post. Several blog posts can be developed in parallel and filed on this Platform until you are ready to publish them into your website. This function allows you to use your time very efficiently and effectively.
Wealthy Affiliate hosts live webinars every Friday at 5 pm Vancouver Pacific Time. These are given by Jay Neill, Wealthy Affiliate’s live training coach. When you attend a live webinar you can ask questions. At the end of Jay’s presentation he conducts a Q&A session answering the questions asked about the topic of the webinar.
If you are not able to attend, all webinars are accessible in the archive. This screen shot gives you an idea of how the webinars are organized and available for your use.
These sessions run for about one hour. There is a search function at the top to find recorded webinars of topics you are interested in. The dates in red are scheduled future webinars. The dates in gray are the recordings. I took this screenshot before May 31st hence that is the reasons for the coloring you see.
Note that all these topics are taught in the Online Entrepreneur Certification and Affiliate Bootcamp Courses. Here Jay delves into them in more detail. Plus you have the opportunity of asking questions live assuming you attend the live events.
As with all the functions I am covering based in the Dashboard tabs, I will go into these webinars in more detail in a future bog post devoted just to webinars. There are also webinars conducted by members and these will also be discussed.
Wealthy Affiliate launched a brand new tool in the Spring of 2019 called Affiliate Programs. Its main purpose is to streamline the effort required to search for businesses that have affiliate programs that meet our selected niche. This process not only been simplified, but also provides far better results compared to doing this function the old fashioned way using Google as the main resource. I have created a whole Blog Post that delves into the featured and benefits of Affiliate Programs, so I will not address this further here. I will show what it looks like in the screenshot below:
Wealthy Affiliate has developed its proprietary research tool called Jaaxy. The following screenshot depicts the services provided by this service. Jaaxy Lite is available for free to Premium Members. Jaaxy also offers a full featured version available to high power users for a monthly fee. However, the Lite version is very powerful by itself to assist you in researching and helping you achieve high website rankings.
You can start your research by entering your keyword phrase in the search box at the top. Jaaxy will provide you with a list of your keyword as well as others that are closely related. You can find what kind of traffic and competition these keywords have as well as their Search Engine Optimization value. This helps you to find the most optimum Keywords to help you create a blog post title with a high probability of being ranked high.
There are 7 functions below to help you in your search. Explanations are provided under each title that summarizes the data provided by each function.
The power you have here to catapult you ahead of your competition is simply mind-blowing Except for the last function this tool is available to free members too. Once again, I shall be publishing a blog post that will discuss Jaaxy and show you the results you can get using this research tool.
When you have a problem and need answers immediately, post your question in the Live Chat area and you will get a response by more experienced members if they happen to be there too. Here is an example of a member with the profile name Tammy Lee asking a question on how to build a website using the Rubix domain. Two members have already communicated with her providing answers.
The availability of the Weakthy Affiliate community is one of the best benefits of being a member. Currently there are over 1.5 Million members of which thousands are active in helping other members succeed. After being a member here for several months and even several years, you develop powerful skills that you have used to make money online. You can help pay it forward to newbies at that time.
Whenever you get stuck, need help or want to send a private message, you can go to the Help Center to find a solution from experts.
In the screenshot below, Carson and Kyle are the owners and founders of Wealthy Affiliate. Very few training systems give you a link to actually communicate with their owners. Tim McKinlay happens to be my sponsor into Wealthy Affiliate who also is my mentor. When I need one-on-one on one discussion I can approach Tim.
Below the Premium Coaches the Top Helpers of the day are shown. They are also accessible for assistance. It is incredible how many young individuals 18 to early 20s have become 6-figure earners from the training they received at Wealthy Affiliate. They have expanded their reach to beyond this platform by training others to become successful from their own coaching programs. Yet they keep giving back to members here who need help.
Naturally they have sponsored countless other new members to experience the benefits of the Wealthy Affiliate training platform.
Finally, the benefits of the 4 functions at the top are clearly explained. In a blog posts I shall focus on the Help Center exclusively, just like I will be doing for the 6 other functions above.
I invite you to join my Leadership Team in Wealthy Affiliate where I will guide you to make the most of the resources you have available here to create a profitable presence on the Internet like so many others have. Just click on the banner below and you will be taken inside to the registration page of Wealthy Affiliate. More information about the program is provided there for you to review.
Then enter your Email address and send it along. I shall meet you on the other side.
