When I first started, it took me 2 hours during weekdays and 4 hours or more during weekends, and this schedule lasted for about 4 to 5 months. (That is till I got my first commission) Then now it is about 1 hour every weekday and 2 hours during weekends. Of course, I will work more if I have the time because I am passionate about my online business.
With affiliate marketing, you offer the products for sale, for example, on your blog or e-commerce website. Each product has a unique link that tracks back to your account with your affiliate partner. A prospect who clicks on the link is taken to your partner’s shopping cart for checkout. Once they buy, that purchase is recorded and you receive a commission. Commission amounts vary depending on the affiliate partner, but is generally 5 percent to 25 percent, or 50 percent or more with digital information products.
So it begs the question – I would love to work from a laptop anywhere in the world with good internet , but how on earth do I get started when I have no business idea? I feel lost as all my life i’ve been an accountant but pretty ‘clued up’. I love ‘hustling’ – buying and reselling stuff i find on the cheap, and I always felt an entrepreneurial streak as I love burning the midnight oil when it’s my own work. I’m real sick of the corporate life and am about to finish up at my job after being ‘shafted’ on the probation period (told i was great, good, then suddenly now it was extended and i’m terrible, don’t fit in etc. etc). I really just want to shove it at life and work for myself but what always holds me back isn’t so much going for a course or learning how to do things – but I just don’t know what idea/niche I want to pursue! I just have confidence and am curious about my entrepreneurial streak and ability to push forward – except I don’t have a guiding idea or business/niche in mind? Any advice/help? I haven’t seen your online business yet, so I am not sure what your online business sells – but I arrived here when googling your direct wines review on scams… again another attempt at seeing if I could ‘work for myself’. but alas another one of those get rich quick schemes that get rich off your back more like it.
It’s a constant learning process Shahbaz. And, you can work on the courses at your own convenience. Some people take 3 months to complete and some takes a year. It’s really up to you. Well the course teaches you how to make money, and some people took a week to earn their first dollar, some people took 3 to 4 months (I did), some took 6 to 12 months and some don’t make any money.
I read your review and I want to join the Program .But I’m from Bangladesh and I clicked on the special link you gave in the article which took me to WA page where it said $19 for the first month ,but when I went to pay ,it’s saying Free starter accounts are not available but showing $49 for premium membership. wasn’t I supposed to pay $19 for my first month for clicking through your link?
If you do decide to promote Wealthy Affiliate, there are additional perks. For example, anyone who sells 299 subscriptions from January to December gets invited to the Wealthy Affiliate Super Affiliate Conference. There is no way to get into this conference unless you make 299 sales. Absolutely everything is paid for from the flight to the hotel room to entertainment and AMAZING food. Here’s a quick video I made showing some of the highlights.
Pick an Interest. You must first choose a niche for your business. This could be anything from cars and electronics, to computers, clothing and food. It is best to select something that interests you and there are many highly profitable niches to choose from. But if you have no ideas on what you like and how to choose a niche Wealthy Affiliate will give you great ideas to pick any profitable niche which still has room to get in to.
Technically, it works. And technically, it is “easy” – you don’t have to grab an embed code from Etsy and paste it in. You don’t have to really do much to make installation happen. However, Wix’s solution is still not ideal. Ideally, you’d have an app that was easy to install and fully integrated into your site. You’d have apps that don’t mess with your website analytics and don’t present accessibility issues like they do via Wix’s iFrame solution.
If you add up all the services you get, the premium membership is a steal. For example, you’ll notice they include unlimited keyword research with a membership. Other paid keyword research tools sell for $49 or more just by themselves. Add in website hosting, and there’s another $10 / mo. Add on the website security package, and there’s another $10 per month (I’ve paid as much as $29 / mo just for website security). Just based on those things alone, Wealthy Affiliate is a great deal with all of the resources and tools you need in one convenient place. Not to mention all of the training, tutorials, and support that is included with the membership.
I don’t have a website yet, but there’s several I know that aren’t big bucks and I even heard Wix was decent. Anyway. I want to become an affiliate. I’ve desired it for over a year. I’ve been told it will cost so much per month. I truly believe if you know the basics you can do this. It may take time. I just attended Keale Keane’s webinar and paid $99.00.
