As we’re about to celebrate the US Independence Day on July 4, I’d like to submit the idea that we can also hope for and work towards our financial independence day. Just as our founding fathers fought for our independence back in the day, so we can today also fight to become financially independent, and for some of us, mark the day on our calendar when we found ourselves there, on our very own financial independence day.
Today, I’d like to talk about a training program that I’ve been looking into over the past month called, Wealthy Affiliate. While I’ve been a web developer for over 10 years now, I’ve found the training quite useful in terms of learning how to market a website, do keyword research and generate traffic.
What does this have to do with financial independence or independence day?
The training helps ordinary people that aren’t writers or marketers find out that they can be and that they can make income on the side or even a living out of it. When you think about it, everyone is an expert on at least one subject. Wealthy Affiliate provides the training on how to put that to good use and also provides the tools to succeed.
And Wealthy Affiliate is so much more too. Wealthy Affiliate is also an online community of over 800k active members from all walks of life that help each other succeed through forums, chats, and training built from past experiences. Members share with each other what works and what does not work. Also, members help each other when they get stuck. And, members give constructive criticism and provide feedback on each others’ websites to further boost search engine rank and community engagement.
How does the Affiliate in Wealthy Affiliate become Wealthy?
Affiliate marketing. The training provided at Wealthy Affiliate is a step by step guide on how to create a new website (with WordPress) and through thorough keyword research generate organic search engine traffic. When there’s traffic on the website(s), there’s also the potential for affiliate links. Affiliate links are, essentially, links to services and products that are related to what your website is about our products and services that we recommend. Once a user clicks on such a link and buys that service or product, the website owner receives a commission. Many website owners have become quite wealthy with this strategy.
Make it your financial independence day with Wealthy Affiliate
I’d like to challenge you today to mark this day, Independence Day, as the day that you begin your journey towards financial independence by giving Wealthy Affiliate a try and give yourself a chance to benefit from the many services and features that Wealthy Affiliate has to offer.
What can I do with the Starter Membership?
Here’s a comparison chart that shows exactly what’s available with the Starter Membership vs what Premium members get. Oh, and by the way, when you’re using the free Starter Membership, you get a discount to upgrade to Premium Membership. I recommend taking full advantage of the first 7 days of membership and learn as much as you possibly can, then, if you decide that Wealthy Affiliate is for you, upgrade your membership right before the 7 days are up and take advantage of the huge discount.
In closing, I’d like to offer anyone who is interested in learning more about the program at Wealthy Affiliate, please reach out to me with any concerns or questions. I’m here to help. You can use the comments below or send a message via the contact form.
