These days, a lot of people are looking for a legitimate way to make money at home. This could be to supplement income, completely replace a nine-to-five job, or are a stay at home parent, but want to make some money, but without having to sacrifice to much time away from the parental duties.
Whatever the reason, there are legitimate ways to make money at home. One of the ways to do this is through something called Affiliate Marketing.
Disclosure!!! While there are many, many different programs and people who state things like “Get rich while you sleep,” “Make money with virtually no effort involved,” etc, this is not a get rich quick scheme. Getting traffic to come to your site, and through your content, giving people enough information to make a purchasing decision is what makes you money. This can take a while depending on your niche and does involve some effort on your part.
Introducing Wealthy Affiliate! This program is one of the best out there. I have been using it for almost a year, and have tried several others out there
Learn from Home!
One thing that I have very little of is time! Between my job, working in the IT field, My wife working nights (which means I take care of the kids at night), and taking care the house at night, my days and nights are full. It is only after the kids go to sleep so I have time to work on my sites. Wealthy Affiliate makes it easy as I can learn on my own time, as I don’t have to go to a class, and if it is only for 30 minutes, that’s better than not being able to do it at all! (Sometimes I stay up for 4 hours working on the sites if I want to get a lot accomplished!)
When it comes to anything in my day whether it is working, going grocery shopping, etc, I like having a plan and a checklist (this is the military in me!) A good thing about Wealthy affiliate is that while you are learning from home, you can track your progress and earn cool badges for your profile. When you complete a task, check the box and move to the next task. This will show you what you have completed and how far you have come along.
Another good learning opportunity to help you with your business is the weekly webinars. I subscribe to almost everyone and watch them. The webinars are on Friday nights for me, and after my kids go to sleep, I watch it and take notes. These are excellent tools to help expand your knowledge and use the presented training to further your website and money making endeavors.
Build a Lasting Business to Bring in Extra Income!
The training that you will go through consists of 5 levels of 10 lessons. Each step brings you closer to bringing in a residual income, depending on your niche. As you go through the lessons and levels, you will build content that will attract visitors to your site. Once you get enough visitors going to your site and reading your reviews, they could click on your link in the review and go on to purchase the item. When they do, you get a commission! Money on the bank!
But, in order to do this, you will need to build a following. That is what Wealthy Affiliate will teach you. They will give you everything you need to build a following on your website, and with enough time and content, the sales could start coming in. One thing to keep in mind is that you will need to continuously create new content to keep your site fresh!
World Class Community!
Wealthy Affiliate no doubt has a tremendous amount of content and training material for you to review and help you succeed. In my opinion, the best help on the site is through the Community. These are other individuals who are doing the same thing as you would be, going through the training and building up their sites.
The best part is that these people are all over the world, and at any time, day or night, there is someone who can help you if you have a question. Chances are if you have a question, there is someone who has gone through the same thing and can help you. You can also post your question on Wealthy Affiliate, and numerous people will give you an answer! That is some great stuff! No waiting on people to get to work the next day to get an answer to your issue!
There is also a community created training to help you get to where you need to go. The community has some very intelligent individuals who know what they are doing and many of them have created training for a very specific problem or a series of problems and these will help clear up any issues or concerns you may have.
The community chat is available at all times and I have used it many times to ask questions, or just to say hello to everyone. Every now and then, you will make friends with other individuals and can chat with them here. They are very friendly people who are trying to be successful and will help you as they have been helped as well!
