I came across Wealthy Affiliate while searching for affiliate training.  It is an all in one package with both an affiliate marketing course and website hosting platform. Included is a free Jaaxy membership to help with keyword research.

What I Like:

  • All in one package, training and web hosting
  • Good place for beginners to start
  • Can start for free 
  • Heaps of support from the community
  • Place to ask questions
  • Also a live chat to help you out when stuck.

What I Don't Like:

  • Short trial period
  • Some features not available in free version
  • Live chat for only trial period
  • Need to write lots of blog posts

The other features are unlocked when you pay for your first month.

This process of affiliate marketing uses blog post as the advertising media. By writing about the product allows you to place your affiliate link into the blog post. This is a common way to monetize a blog post.

After the first week I have finished the start up lessons and created a website. I now need to write a blog post about the product before going further in the lessons. Don't expect to be earning money from day 1 unless you already understand this style of marketing.

Wealthy Affiliate is suitable for beginners. If you have a computer and can follow step by step instructions then you can do this. A community of successful and newbies are there to help, encourage and inspire you to reach your goals.
