These pay-per-click ads appear on your blog. Every time somebody clicks on an ad (which is supposed to be about a subject related to your niche), you make a few cents or more. Small amounts each time, but it adds up. This is extremely hands-off. You just need to get a code from Google, place it on your website - and the ads will automatically appear on your blog. Google will only show ads that are relevant to your blog so it's a good experience for your visitors and maximizes the number of clicks you get, meaning more income.
As an affiliate marketer, you help product owners who has an affiliate program to sell their products. Basically, you sign up to their affiliate program, and they will provide you with your affiliate link. Once you have that link, you can place it on your website, social media or wherever. As Long as you are speaking to the right audience, people who are in your niche (people who are interested in what you promote), and they buy a product through your affiliate link, you will earn a commission.
Note that this is all from the default setup – Wix has a new product called “Wix Code” – my take on that product is beyond the scope of this review. My disadvantages listed below are from the perspective of a small business owner who is looking to use Wix and might one day call someone like me or a developer friend to help with website marketing or development.
I promote the local marketing thing that changed my life, but I’ve actually built a multiple 6 figure business with it already (still building that biz to this day, with 4 full-time employees working for me) and no one in this coaching group is allowed to promote it like I am. I am just one of the few that is since I am literally one of the original success students (effectively killed my job in 2015 & became a full-time internet entrepreneur).
If you have a great deal of business experience and knowledge, why not create a business that helps aspiring entrepreneurs find success? As a business consultant, you can use your skills to help new business owners get off to a good start and help experienced entrepreneurs keep up with demand. Your chances of success may be greater if you focus your strategy on a niche aspect of business consulting. You can start this process by following this 18-step checklist for becoming a small business consultant.
Want to know a little secret about this site? When I first started this site, I only planned on monetizing by selling my OWN affiliate marketer training course. About halfway through creating my course, I realized that I would never be able to provide the type of quality product I intended. Even if I could, it would become outdated so fast that in just a couple years, I wouldn’t be able to sell it anymore.
Hi Jack! Just wondering if you can advise abit about the process about the course. While I understand there is alot of online process, technique and marketing that goes into an online business, my biggest issue is I just have no clue on what to run! I don’tk now my niche? I love investing – shares, equities, everything, but I am by far not a guru that I can setup a coaching style online business like those ‘rich dudes’ you see selling training courses online whiel worknig on their laptop in bali.
I won’t recommend you to Wealthy Affiliate if your intention is to promote your own products. Wealthy Affiliate is focused on teaching people how to promote other people’s products. For promoting your own products, I recommend that you learn specific skillsets like Copywriting and Facebook Advertising, and both of which Lurn provides (Click on the links above to read the reviews).
Can you run a successful business by only using the free membership option at Wealthy Affiliate? Well, you can, but I wouldn’t recommend it. Instead, I recommend you sign up for the free Wealthy Affiliate membership as a way to try things out. Honestly, the free membership is set up to be a bit of a teaser to get you to sign up for premium eventually, but most of us expect that going in. What’s nice about it is you can judge for yourself, based on the free membership, whether it is worth it for you to sign up for premium. Ultimately, only you can decide if Wealthy Affiliate is high quality or not. You will get more than enough of an idea by signing up for their free membership option. On average, about 1 in every eight people upgrade to a premium membership.
I found your article to be very interesting and informative. I actually found it through your review of Kidazzler. I did become a member of Kidazzler (at the recommendation of someone on a business support group of which I am a member). I have not, however, given them any financial information yet as I have been trying to find more information on the company.
Basically, anyone who is looking to make money fast should stay away from Wealthy Affiliate. There are plenty of “make money fast” e-books and courses out there, and they are all a scam (trust me). While Wealthy Affiliate is legit, they will absolutely never claim that they teach you how to make money fast. Building a legitimate online business takes time.
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 have recently joined this group of affliates.I was seeing so many promises of riches without any work in the online business areana that I had almost given up.In my research I found the group to have excellent reviews. I had started the free offers before many reviews I read from my own discernmemt of the group.The more reviews I saw,and after communication with one of the owners,kyle,I decided to become a premium member.I am far from educated in the realm of being a business owner,and certainly not familiar with the online atmosphere from my construction manual labor background.I am very thankful to sites like this to confirm my doubts on scam sites and the reinforced belief in the few honest people on the web.Thanks Jack,Your Opinion Is Priceless In This Area For Those Of Us Who Have No Experience.
Jack I am about to join WA as a PM. If I join now I will pay $19 for the first month. And for the rest of the month $47? How is it that you also mention it is $359/year? That is $29.92 / month. Please explain to me a bit even if you feel my question a bit stupid:) Shal I pay first the $19 for the first month or pay $359 for one full year? I would prefer to pay the full amount for a year.
Needless to say, I was blown away pretty quickly. Even by signing up for their free membership option, it was very apparent that Wealthy Affiliate does things differently. The community, recorded training, live ongoing weekly training sessions, live chat and support options, and business-like approach for beginners to pros alike really blew my mind.
