Why do I say that – well quite simply to be successful you need a platform that is designed by affiliate marketers for affiliate marketers and Wealthy Affiliate has that platform.

Let me explain my reasons.

Firstly what is Wealthy Affiliate?

Wealthy Affiliate is a web based platform dedicated to entrepreneurs that use the internet for their business and those that gain income from affiliate marketing.

Think of it as, WA provide all the “hardware” needed to succeed – you provide the idea, passion or niche that you want to explore.

Wealthy Affiliate look after all the complicated back room processes which is almost unique in the affiliate marketing world. Many courses, systems or membership schemes expect you to know and understand these complex procedures. Of course if you don’t, this can lead to incredible feelings of frustration and failure before starting.

It is true that if you have a computer and an internet connection you can build an on line business, BUT there are certain steps that need to be taken. If these steps are taken in the correct order and completed in the correct manner it can monumentally increase your chances of success.

4 Steps to Complete

1. Choose an Interest

2. Build a website

3. Attract visitors

4. Monetize the site

Choosing an interest

This is often called a niche. For many this will be an interest or passion already held. For example if I enjoyed stamp collecting maybe I would like to build my website around this area. Similarly, you may be passionate about fishing –this could be your niche.

Alternatively you may see a niche which you believe to be up and coming and want to base your business around this idea. You will be astounded at how quickly you become expert in this field if you are interested and passionate.

Wealthy Affiliate will provide all the training and all the tools you need to find a niche and make it profitable.

Building a website

Your website can be thought of as your shop front, without which you cannot build a business.

Exactly like a shop it has to be well laid out, easy to find your way around and pleasant to look at.

You need to fill your website with useful and informative content which attracts internet surfers to visit your site and hopefully buy whatever service or product you are offering. Many try to take short cuts at this point, but be warned most people fail because their website is simply not good enough.

Wealthy Affiliate provides FREE membership which includes TWO FREE web sites to start them on their journey. Premium members can host 25 of their own domains and 25 free domains a very impressive 50 web sites in total.

Attract Visitors

This is often called traffic. Visitors or traffic is absolutely vital to the success of your business no matter whether its on line or a traditional business.

Search engines and social media companies are the biggest driving force to get visitors to your site. Understanding how to get the best ranking on search engines like Google, Yahoo, Bing and others is certainly needed.

If you cannot attract traffic it matters not how popular your niche is or how pretty your site is you will not succeed

It is therefore a vital skill set for you to possess.

Wealthy Affiliate teaches all you need to know regarding traffic. Their courses show the best strategies and techniques to used to get your website ranked highly and therefore give you the best chance of success.

Making Money

So you have decided on a niche, developed and built a website, traffic is visiting your site but you have nothing to sell, right?

This is where you are wrong, if you do the first 3 steps right you will find there are literally thousands of ways to make money from your site.

For example there are over 500,000,000 products that you can promote as an affiliate marketer. People purchasing a product follow a special affiliate link on your site. You earn a percentage of every sale made through that link. Many are able to make a full time living from just following this path.

Wealthy Affiliate have an extremely lucrative affiliate programme of their own which any member free or premium can join and start to earn money.

Affiliate marketing is just one way of making money. Others include selling advertising on your site, developing email lists, selling your own products or services or reselling traffic to other sites. There are many, many other income producing opportunities providing you get sufficient traffic to your site.


#1 Reason

Fantastic Value for Money and you can join as a free member; get your 2 free web sites hosted and trial Wealthy Affiliate for FREE

Should you decide to become a premium member and quite frankly you would be mad not to – it would only cost $49 per month (after the first month) or $359 per year.

This price is all-inclusive and truly includes all you need to create, grow and scale your business to as large a size as you want.

#2 Reason

State of the art Hosting.

I cannot over emphasis this enough, the hosting at WA is powerful – just look at what is included as a premium member and feel free to compare to any other top tier word press hosting company out there

Now I don’t pretend to know what even half of these do, but I do know that you can rely on the performance, speed and stability of Wealthy Affiliate as a hosting company and at a fraction of the cost of other hosting companies offering a quarter of what Wealthy Affiliate does.

As an aside, Wealthy Affiliate have not increased their membership fees in the 12 years they have been in business so you can rest assured that these are not starter teaser rates.

#3 Reason

Wealthy Affiliate has over 1.4m members, many of them earning six and seven figure incomes. So there is a massive knowledge bank which they are always willing to share with you. You know the adage don’t re-invent the wheel – well this is a good case in point.

Every day there are new training updates covering every topic you can think of to help build your business. There is live chat, specialist assistance and a vast library of video help. I can honestly say that I have never had to wait very long after posting a question before an expert has answered my query or question.

#4 Reason

You have direct access to the Founders

That’s right Kyle and Carson are actively involved in the Wealthy Affiliate community each and every day. You are quite likely to receive private messages from them or periodic emails of encouragement and advice. Kyle even shares his complete library of training videos to give you a massive head start.

#5 Reason

Everything you could need here in one place.

All the training, tools, services and support you could need to create and build a business on line is here at Wealthy Affiliate. No longer will you get half the story and have to search the web to get the other half.

You know that the information and assistance you receive is correct and up to date which is great to know and gives terrific peace of mind

#6 Reason

It’s never too late to learn

It is so reassuring to know that there is a weekly training session that is current, live, inter-active and you can participate in. A new topic is covered each week and you can guarantee it will be very relevant to building your business. These sessions are usually run by an expert within the Wealthy Affiliate community and typically last for about an hour with a question and answer session at the end.

Replays are made available next day and are stored in the library for access at any time. This is another free service to Wealthy Affiliate Premium members.

#7 Reason

There are no up sells

I don’t know about you but it drives me nuts to join a scheme only to be bombarded with extra demands for money.

For much less than a cup of coffee a day you get everything – nothing added – nothing taken away. Don’t believe me – just take the free membership and spend the next 7 days exploring. You will find I am right.

#8 Reason

Complete cross section of people

Within the Wealthy Affiliate community you have people that have been earning substantial incomes on line for many years right through to people that are still working to make their first sale.

This is strangely reassuring; whichever stage of the business cycle you are, you will always find someone at your level, probably going through exactly the same doubts and quandaries as you. The old saying a problem shared is a problem halved has never been truer than here at Wealthy Affiliate.

#9 Reason

Nothing Hidden

Here is a handy reference table to show what the membership options are;

#10 Reason

You have NO reason NOT to join

Wealthy Affiliate offer a no obligation, completely free Starter Membership which really does mean you can try before you buy.

If you don’t like what you see you can walk away and you have lost nothing.

I think this above all else shows the level of confidence the owners and all the members of Wealthy Affiliate have in the product

And that is it. I have been completely honest and open as to why I believe that the easiest way to succeed at affiliate marketing is to join Wealthy Affiliate

About Martin

My story-

about 10 years ago I bought my first domain name. At that time I did not know anything about the internet, what it was capable of or what I would do with it. I just knew that I wanted to remove myself from the 9 to 5 rat race and perhaps, just may be, the internet would allow this.

If the internet was to be my saviour it had to satisfy a number of must do’s which I jotted down;

  • Must be capable of generating an income
  • Must be easy to understand and replicate
  • Must be portable (I had visions of golden sands by a warm sea here)
  • Must be stock free

I thought, perhaps naively, that if these points were fulfilled then I would quickly find myself in paradise.

So this was how my story began. Somehow I missed paradise. In the intervening years I had my fair share of ups and downs. The paths I followed were full of twists and turns. I frequently took a wrong turn and got lost many times. I lost count of how many people offered me advice (usually wrong) and how many pockets I lined buying courses (mostly not needed).

But through perseverance and a very stubborn attitude I eventually found systems that ticked all “my must have” boxes. They were affordable and most importantly, were capable of providing everything that was needed to change my life.

I now want to help people change their lives

It’s a well-known fact that many people have also had that same dream I had.

It is equally well-known that many give up, their dream in tatters just because there is so much misinformation out there. It becomes almost impossible to differentiate between the truth and the lies. The internet is full of those promising the world and providing very little.

It is for this reason that I set up this site. I want those just starting out on their web journey and those disillusioned souls that have tried and failed to have somewhere they feel comfortable to come and gain some direction. I hope it will be a great comfort to know there is someone they can communicate with, that has walked the very same path and knows what they are going through.

If this resonates with you

Please enter my site and here have a good look around.

I cannot and will not make false promises. I will not promise the earth and deliver little. What I can say with every confidence is that the services and products I list on this site will save you a lot of searching, a lot of wasted time and almost without doubt save you a lot of money.

If you ever need a hand, or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will do my very best to help you out.

Wishing you an exciting journey,

Martin Woodbridge
