What if I told you that you could work anywhere and anytime and that there are plenty of jobs waiting to be taken? I am not joking.
There are opportunities to work anywhere that you are comfortable – be it in your living room, your office, near the swimming pool, in the park, in a hotel room, on the airplane – anywhere that you can concentrate and have clear thoughts.
And these opportunities can be anytime as well – while the kids are doing their homework, while you are waiting for soccer practice to finish or while the baby is napping.
There are as many opportunities to generate income online as there are ideas in the world… REALLY!
Let Me Help You Get Started
You will need three things:
- A website
Do you need one? Yes! Some people try to tell you that you don’t, but have you ever tried to cook without a kitchen or organize your office without a desk or a filing cabinet?
A website is a place where you can show everyone what you have, how you can help them and what you are offering. It is a place where people can come to ask you questions or discuss things with you. And you can use it in various ways to increase your income.
- A place to learn what to do
You do need a place to learn what to do. You are going to have to learn how to build a website, put content on it, learn how to keep it up and promote it.
If you want to promote and sell other peoples’ products to get a commission (affiliate marketing) then you will need to learn about affiliate programs, keyword research, article marketing, e-mail marketing and the likes.
Or if you just want to develop your offline business into an online one, you will need to learn such things as well. Have I lost you already? The fact is, all this and more is simply presented in a step-by-step method with lots of help if you go to the right place.
- The interest and persistence to keep going until you succeed
Without it, you will never get anywhere – the place I am referring to is not a quick riches program. It is a place where if you diligently apply and practice what you learn, you can succeed. But it is all up to you.
You May Wonder if Such a Program is Available or Affordable
It is! And you can start out spending nothing….. yes, nothing! By joining Wealthy Affiliate with a free starter account, you can get access to:
- The Beginner Training Course
- Live Chat
- Video Walk-Throughs
- A Personal Affiliate Blog
- A Keyword Research Tool
- The Affiliate Program (yes, you can join as an affiliate!)
- Some of the Training Classrooms and more!
All this plus live support and 1-on-1 coaching for the first 7 days. You even have the option of building 2 WordPress websites. All this for not a cent! You may be wondering what the catch is… all of this for free?
The fact is that Wealthy Affiliate may be a business, but a main part of that business is helping people. That is the culture and the environment promoted there. Why should you invest in something without knowing if you like it or if it works?
You can use your starter account as long as you like (though the live support and 1-on-1 coaching only lasts the first seven days). And of course, if you like it you can always go premium and get much more including:
- Unlimited live support
- Unlimited coaching
- Ability to build an unlimited number of websites
- Weekly webinars (which are all archived for those that can’t take part live)
- Classrooms and more!

Is This Only for People who are Just Getting Started Online?
No! It is for anyone – it is great for those who are just stepping into the Internet Marketing world as it guides you through the basics of building a website, keyword research, affiliate marketing, local marketing, e-mail marketing and much more. But anyone can join, build the websites they need and jump into the training at whatever level they are at.
Wealthy Affiliate teaches the entire process of building a successful online business which is one thing that makes it completely unique in this scam-filled industry. It is also a great place for online entrepreneurs to network with others online.
At Wealthy Affiliate people help one another in a pay-it-forward manner, another aspect that makes it unique in the online business world. On the whole, it is all you need to build an online business.
