Healthy Lifestyles Tips – Prayer:By this Time Next Year


This post is about Healthy Lifestyles Tips – Prayer: By this Time Next Year. By this time next year is a familiar phrase in the Bible. You ought to know several incidents which could have attracted such a phrase which was said by God Himself through His servants, the Holy Angels and His prophets before we can pray together. Such a phrase could have been uttered directly or indirectly.

In Genesis chapter 5 verses 22 up to 24, the possible conversation between God and Enoch could have been, “I am satisfied with how much you love me and how much you have enjoyed fellowship with me for the past 299 years, Enoch. You have not heeded the voices of those who have discouraged you from enjoying fellowship with Me.

“Therefore, BY THIS TIME NEXT YEAR, I will visit you and take you away from these people on earth. They will look for your grave and will not be able to find it because I shall take you to heaven with me.”

Genesis 5:22-24

New International Version

22 After he became the father of Methuselah, Enoch walked faithfully with God 300 years and had other sons and daughters. 23 Altogether, Enoch lived a total of 365 years. 24 Enoch walked faithfully with God; then he was no more, because God took him away.

About Noah’s incident, the phrase BY THIS TIME NEXT YEAR could be outlined as follows: In the 599th year of Noah’s life, God visited him and said, “I have regretted that I made man. He has grieved my heart. Man’s every intention is evil. Therefore, I will blot out man whom I have created from the face of the land, man and animals and creeping things and birds of the heavens, for I am sorry that I have made them.

“You, however, have found favor in my sight together with your three sons and their wives. BY THIS TIME NEXT YEAR, you will enter the ark, you and the entire household, for I have seen that you are righteous before me in this generation. You shall take in also seven pairs of all clean animals, the male and his mate, and seven pairs of the birds of the heavens, also male and female, to keep their offspring alive.

“I will then send rain on the earth forty days and forty nights, and every living thing that I have made I will blot out from the face of the earth.”

Genesis 7 verse 6, “Noah was 600 years old when the flood of the waters came upon the earth.”

Noah's ark

Genesis 7 verse 13 up to 15, “On the very same day Noah and his sons, Shem and Ham and Japheth, and Noah’s wife and the three wives of his sons with them entered the ark, they and every beast according to their kinds, and every creeping thing that creeps on the earth, according to its kind and every bird according to its kind, every winged creature. They went into the ark with Noah, two and two of all flesh in which there was the breath of life.”

Genesis 7 verse 17, “The flood continued forty days on the earth. The water increased and bore up the ark, and it rose high above the earth.’

Genesis 7 verse 23, “He blotted out every living thing that was on the face of the ground, man and animals and creeping things and birds of the heavens. They were blotted out from the earth. Only Noah was left, and those who were with him in the ark.”

Abraham had special visitors at one time and a phrase similar to BY THIS TIME NEXT YEAR was uttered.

Genesis 18:10-15

New International Version

10 Then one of them said, “I will surely return to you about this time next year, and Sarah your wife will have a son.”

Now Sarah was listening at the entrance to the tent, which was behind him. 11 Abraham and Sarah were already very old, and Sarah was past the age of childbearing. 12 So Sarah laughed to herself as she thought, “After I am worn out and my lord is old, will I now have this pleasure?”

13 Then the Lord said to Abraham, “Why did Sarah laugh and say, ‘Will I really have a child, now that I am old?’ 14 Is anything too hard for the Lord? I will return to you at the appointed time next year, and Sarah will have a son.”

15 Sarah was afraid, so she lied and said, “I did not laugh.”

But he said, “Yes, you did laugh.”

By this time next year

Genesis 21 verses 1 and 2, “The Lord visited Sarah as He had said, and the Lord did to Sarah as He had promised. And Sarah conceived and bore Abraham a son in his old age at the time of which God had spoken to him.”

When Joseph was 29 years, God appeared to him and strengthened him, “It has been one whole year since you interpreted the dream to the King’s Cup-bearer, but he has forgotten all about you and he has not mentioned your name to the King. By this time next year, I shall return to you and cause the cup-bearer to remember your interpretations and mention your name to the King.

“However, that is not the only thing I shall do. That time, I shall cause all your childhood dreams to be fulfilled because you shall be a great ruler in Egypt and you shall be well-known even in the lands of your fathers in Canaan.”

Genesis 41 verse 46, “Joseph was thirty years old when he entered the service of Pharaoh King of Egypt. And Joseph went out from the presence of Pharaoh and went through all the land of Egypt.”

In Genesis 15 verse 13, The New King James Version

13 Then He said to Abram: “Know certainly that your descendants will be strangers in a land that is not theirs, and will serve them, and they will afflict them four hundred years.”

In Hebrews 11 verse 22, The New King James Version

“By faith Joseph, when he was dying, made mention of the departure of the children of Israel, and gave instructions concerning his bones.”

By this time next year

One day the Lord appeared to Aaron when he was 82 years old in the 399th year of the great affliction of Israel by the Egyptians who had not known the greatness of Joseph in the land of Egypt. The Lord said to Aaron, “You have a young brother by the name of Moses. He is 79 years old this year, but I am preparing him to come and lead my people, Israel, out of slavery in Egypt. By this time next year, I will send you to meet him in the desert. He will be like God to you, but you shall be his spokesperson whenever he wants to speak to Pharaoh. I will allow Moses to perform many miracles in Egypt, but I shall harden the heart of Pharaoh until his son shall be killed together with all the firstborn children of the Egyptians. Then Pharaoh will allow my people to go to the Promised Land with their animals and great wealth.”

Exodus 7 verse 7 THE NEW KING JAMES VERSION, “Now Moses was 80 years old, and Aaron 83 years old when they spoke to Pharaoh.”

Exodus 12 verse 35, “The people of Israel had also done as Moses told them, for they had asked the Egyptians for silver and gold jewelry and for clothing.”

Exodus 12 verse 36, “And the lord had given the people favor in the sight of the Egyptians, so that they let them have what they asked. Thus, they plundered the Egyptians.”

After the death of Joshua, the Israelites forgot the Lord who had redeemed them from slavery in Egypt.

Judges 3 verses 5 to 7 NEW KING JAMES VERSION, “So the people of Israel lived among the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Amorites, the Perizzites, the Hivites and the Jebusites. And their daughters they took to themselves for wives, and their own daughters they gave to their sons, and they served their gods. And the people of Israel did what was evil in the sight of the Lord. They forgot the Lord, their God and served the Baals and the Asheroth.”

Judges 3 verse 8, “Therefore the anger of the Lord was kindled against Israel, and He sold them into the hand of Cushan-rishathaim King of Mesopotamia.

By this time next year

In the 7th
year of the Israelites suffering under the hand of the king of Mesopotamia, the Lord appeared to Othniel the son of Kenaz, Caleb’s young brother and said to him, “I have heard the cries of my people as they continue to suffer under the hands of the king of Mesopotamia. Behold, by this time next year, I shall return to you and use you to deliver my people from the king of Mesopotamia for you have found favor in my sight.”

Judges 3 verses 10 to 11 NEW KING JAMES VERSION

“The Spirit of the Lord was upon him, and he judged Israel. He went out to war, and the Lord gave Cushan-rishathaim King of Mesopotamia into his hand. And his hand prevailed over Cushan-rishathaim.

So the land of Israel had rest forty years. Then Othniel the son of Kenaz died.”

Judges 6 verse 1 NEW KING JAMES VERSION

The people of Israel did what was evil in the sight of the Lord, and the Lord gave them onto the hand of Midian seven years.

In the 6th
year of the Israelites suffering under the Midianites, the Angel of the Lord visited Gideon and said, “My people have cried to me for help and I have heard them. I have seen how the Midianites and Amalekites are coming like locusts to harvest crops for the Israelites leaving them hungry up to the next harvest season. I have also seen how their enemies are carrying my people’s oxen, sheep and donkeys into foreign land. I have also seen how the Israelites have dug up caves as shelter to hide from their enemies.

“Know that by this time next year, I shall return to use you as the mighty man of valor even though you think you are from the weakest clan in Manasseh. At that time, you shall ask the Lord for miracles to prove that He shall be with you to defeat the Midianites and other armies from the east and he shall answer all your requests.”

By this time next year

The following year, the Lord said to Gideon, “With the three hundred men who lapped I will save you and give the Midianites into your hand, and let all the others go every man to his home.” Judges 7 verse 7.

“So Midian was subdued before the people of Israel, and they raised their heads no more. And the land had rest forty years in the days of Gideon.” Judges 8 verse 28.

When David was 29 years old, the Lord visited him and said to him, “I have seen how you have trusted me from the day my prophet Samuel anointed you to be king over my people, Israel. King Saul has been demanding your life since the day women composed a song of you killing tens of thousands while he (King Saul) had only killed a thousand. You were given two chances to kill him, but you refused to harm the anointed one. By this time next year I shall be glad to fulfill my promise to you for you shall officially become the King of my people, Israel.”

2 Samuel 5 verse 4 NEW KING JAMES VERSION, “David was 30 years old when he began to reign and he reigned forty years.”

Elisha had been offered a good upper room for relaxation and was refreshed with good food and drinks each time he visited Shunem where a wealthy woman lived. He asked his servant, Gehazi, what kind of favor should be accorded to this kind woman. It was then revealed that her husband was old but she had no child of her own. The prophet called her and announced the famous phrase ABOUT THIS TIME NEXT YEAR.

2 Kings 4:16 “About this time next year,” Elisha said

And he said, “About this season, according to the time of life, you shall embrace a son. And she said, No, my lord, you man of God, do not lie to your handmaid.”

2 Kings 4 verse 17 NEW INTERNATIONAL VERSION, “But the woman conceived, and she bore a son about that time the following spring, as Elisha had told her.”

I may not know what has been bothering you for the past seven, eight or forty years but let me assure you that God knows about it. God knows about every problem that everyone is suffering from. However, He is more concerned with people who cry to Him for help.

Again I do not know how long you have been crying to God to help you out of your bad situation. What bad situation are you facing? Is it the yoke of poverty or financial limitations? Is it barrenness like Hannah, the mother of Samuel who had Peninnah taunting her all day long about it?

By this time next year

Or is it the same barrenness that the mother of Samson faced? Or have you forgotten that Elizabeth, the mother of John the Baptist, was barren, too? One more name worth mentioning is Manoah’s wife, the mother of Samson. She, too, waited for some years before Samson was born. Do not worry anymore. Just believe in God as He pronounces to you BY THIS TIME NEXT YEAR I SHALL VISIT YOU.

You see, there is a time limit to your kind of suffering. When God says BY THIS TIME NEXT YEAR I SHALL VISIT YOU and your problem shall be over, He means just that. God does not lie because His Word is truth and He remains the Promise keeper forever.

Do you remember that in the Book of John chapter 9 is a man who had been blind from birth? The disciples asked Jesus who had sinned for him to be born blind. Were his parents responsible for his blindness?

Jesus answered that neither that man nor his parents sinned, but the works of God should be displayed in his life. What about you? Aren’t you going to give God a chance to display His glorious work in your life by believing in Him?

Give God a chance as He speaks to you “By this time next year I shall visit you and your cancer or any other disease shall be gone.”

God is saying to some people, “By this time next year your poverty shall be a thing of the past.”

This is actually a wonderful time to cry to God and tell Him what is troubling you. He is there to respond, “Whatever it is, by this time next year, I shall visit you and your problem will be gone. Just persevere one more year and your mourning song will be turned into a praise song like that of Miriam, Hannah, Mary, the mother of our Lord Jesus Christ. These women were not the only ones who rejoiced because the Lord visited them to wipe out their tears.

Join in the celebration of the healing of the lame man from birth by the Beautiful Gate of the Temple. It does not matter how long your bad situation has affected you. The Lord is saying BY THIS TIME NEXT YEAR YOUR PROBLEM WILL BE GONE. Believe this in the precious name of Jesus Christ and it shall be done. God is the Way Maker and He is the Provider of fresh drinking water, bread and meat in a desert. Remember that He blessed Ishmael in the desert when he, together with his mother, was hopeless.

Believe in Jesus Christ, the Hope of Glory and God will assure you: BY THIS TIME NEXT YEAR YOUR PROBLEM WILL BE GONE. Say I believe in God’s visitation in Jesus Christ’s name, AMEN.

Healthy Lifestyles Tips – The prayer of Jabez Remembered




Jabez and Prayer

This post is about Healthy Lifestyles Tips – The Prayer of Jabez Remembered. Recently gh.studio.opera.com showed pictures in Congo Brazzaville in which a man who looked like the Actor of Jesus’ films was beseeched by hundreds of people who sought a miracle from him. His denials that he was not Jesus of the Bible fell on deaf ears as they surrounded him to simply touch him or his clothes for a desired miracle.

Ask many people who are rich and those who are poor if they desire a miracle in their lives. The answer will be 100% desire. Why is it that everybody, rich or poor needs a miracle in his/her life? The answer lies in the nature of a miracle. Any miracle outlined in the Bible brought something positive in the lives of those who received it.

For instance, Sarah, Anna, Manoah’s wife and Elizabeth were all barren and they looked forward to God who performs wonders and were granted special children in Israel’s eyes. Sarah bore Isaac, the great patriarch. Anna bore Samuel, the great prophet of Israel. Manoah’s wife bore Samson, the Philistines’ slayer. Elizabeth bore John the Baptist, the forerunner of Jesus Christ. That shows you the power of a miracle and it is not surprising that everybody is looking for one.

Prayer of Jabez Remembered

Perhaps one of the best miracles in the Bible can be singled out from the prayer of Jabez. If one can remember the prayer of Jabez, then it is as good as saying one can imitate Jabez and simply go flat out to seek God’s intervention in his/her life for a miracle. The beautiful thing about Jabez’ prayer is that God granted his requests. Before we go any further, let’s look at his prayer as it is outlined in 1 Chronicles 4 vs 10.

“Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, ‘Oh that you would bless me indeed, and enlarge my territory, that Your hand would be with me, and that You would keep me from evil, that I may not cause pain!’ So God granted him what he requested. (New King James Version)

This is a simple, but powerful prayer accessible by anybody looking for whatever kind of miracle. What sort of miracle do you need? Let me share with you what miracle some people could have needed when COVID – 19 was at its pick sending shock waves in some countries of the world. One man lost his beloved wife and daughter to the epidemic. He could not stand the sight of losing two beloved people he had worked hard to earn an income for. He threw the money in the street and went back into his house and suffered from depression.

Prayer of Jabez Remembered

During COVID – 19, many people lost their jobs. Due to his strong desire to keep his job and be promoted, a police officer in the United States of America ended up killing George Floyd by pressing his knee on the victim’s neck. This caused uproar and people marched along many streets in the United States of America as well as in United Kingdom and France demanding justice for the death of George Floyd.

Therefore, the man who lost his wife and daughter needed a miracle to keep them alive. The people who lost their jobs needed a miracle to keep their jobs. George Floyd’s family needed a miracle to keep him alive. The police officer who caused the death of George Floyd needed a miracle not to go to an extent of causing a death.

When everybody remembers that he/she needs a miracle of any sort, it is better to remember the prayer of Jabez. If we analyze his prayer for which God granted his request, we can learn many things from it.

This was the first thing he asked God to grant him, “Oh that you would bless me indeed.”

Prayer of Jabez Remembered

According to some people bless means to protect, make holy, to favor or to make lucky or happy. It is a favorable word and a contrast to “curse” which requires bad or evil things to happen to someone.

We can then conclude that Jabez requested God to make good things happen in his life. God’s favor should cover him wherever he went and whatever he decided to do.

The second thing Jabez requested was, “enlarge my territory.”

This is a fabulous thing. Who on earth does not want his/her territory to be enlarged? Offer Donald Trump prime land to develop in a country of his choice and he will not hesitate to enlarge his territory in that particular area. Trump with his nine golf courses and clubs spread across states and nations would be delighted to reach twenty golf courses and clubs. Why? It is because the desire to enlarge one’s territory is embedded in everyone’s heart

.Jabez' Prayer Remembered

Even Bill Gates would be very happy to have his territories increased. Rich as he is, he would like to have his territory increased to beautiful countries he admires.

At the point of beginning his prayer, Jabez is a “nobody”, but a person who had been causing pain to his mother and many other people including his siblings. He was a trouble maker to everyone he came across. So wherever he went to start any business he would be rejected as people smelt trouble as soon as he appeared on the scene. Therefore, he was limited to his family’s space.

Upon reaching a point of decision to change matters in his life, he does not want to waste time and he calls upon the God of Israel. Another time he heard many good things concerning the God of Israel and that this God was not limited to what He was capable of. He was a miracle worker and as such Jabez would rely on Him to manufacture a portion of miracle for his own life. He now wanted things to change for the better and only the God of Israel would grant the desires of his heart.

Another time he heard many stories how miraculous the God of Israel had been in the past and that He was still helping many people out of their troubles. Psalm 46 vs 1, “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help.”

God had been present to help the Israelites out of trouble when they were running away from their enemies in Egypt. At one time they faced the obstacle of crossing the Red Sea when the Egyptians were pursuing them to recapture them into slavery. They cried to the God of Israel and a miracle came their way.

Jabez' Prayer Remembered

No, it was not one miracle, but three great miracles. One miracle the God of Israel performed was to stop the Egyptian soldiers from reaching them. A pillar of fire was set up to prevent the soldiers from reaching where the Israelites were.

Secondly, a mighty wind was brought to divide the water and dry up the sea bed so that the Israelites would walk on dry ground.

Thirdly, the wind brought back the divided water to engulf the enemy soldiers and drown them up. No soldier escaped causing Miriam, the sister of Moses, to take up musical instruments and lead the women in dancing and glorifying God for a marvelous victory over their enemies.

Jabez came to understand that God was not short of miracles. He performed many miracles as He led the Israelites in the wilderness to their promised land. Moses led the way because he could not leave any camp without the God of Israel saying so. If Moses spent a long time at the mountain communicating with God, his face would turn into a shiny one. His face would be so shiny that no Israelite would look at him without covering his or her face.

Jabez' Prayer Remembered

Actually, there were too many miracles performed by the God of Israel for one to finish talking about them in one day. For forty years the God of Israel provided meat and bread to the Israelites as they journeyed in the desert. The miraculous water from a stone would provide for the animals as well.

For forty years the Israelites’ sandals did not wear out. More miracles were witnessed in the desert as people were bitten to death by snakes and a bronze snake set up to rescue those who would look at it in faith. At one time the ground opened up to bury alive the rebels who did not want to be led by Moses, the most humble leader on earth according to Numbers 12 vs 3.

As the miraculous scenes raced up in his own mind, Jabez’ confidence grew and put his trust in the God of Israel to answer his request of extending his place of residence which we are referring to here as his territory.

The third request was, “Your hand would be with me.”

Jabez' Prayer Remembered

Jabez knew that if god’s hand would rest upon him, he would be protected from the schemes of jealousy people who would see God’s abundant blessings upon his life and seek to harm him. Another time he created many enemies in his life and such people would rise up in vengeance as soon as he started prospering financially. With God’s hand upon his life, he would be safe and well protected as he who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge; his truth shall be your shield and buckler. (Psalms 91 vs 1 and 4).

The third request was, “and that You would keep me from evil.”

Jabez knew that God is holy and the people that worship Him should be holy. And so he requested God to keep him from indulging in any sort of evil lest he separates himself from the Holy One of Israel. And according to Psalms 1 v1 a man or woman remains blessed as long as he/she does not walk according to the counsel of the wicked nor stands in the way of the sinners nor sits in the seat of scoffers. However, the blessed man delights in meditating in God’s law day and night.

For God detests evil as outlined in Proverbs 6 vs 16 – 19: “These six things the lord hates, Yes, seven are an abomination to Him: A proud look, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that are swift in running to evil, a false witness who speaks lies, and one who sows discord among brethren. Beware of adultery.”

The fourth thing that Jabez requested was, “that I may not cause pain!’

Jabez' Prayer Remembered

Can you remember another prayer where we can find this kind of request? Do not even look further than the Lord’s Prayer as recorded in Matthew 6 vs 10 going downwards. Those who strictly follow the Lord’s Prayer do not cause harm to the others because God’s will should be done on earth as it is in heaven. There is no quarreling or causing pain to others in heaven and so the atmosphere of peace should be maintained.

So God granted him what he requested. That is true. Other people’s requests are not granted because their requests are based on selfish motives. Once they are blessed, they end up being proud and causing pain to their spouses or their employees as God regretted in blessing some Israelites in Isaiah 58 vs 3, “ ‘Why have we fasted,’ they say, and You have not seen? Why have we afflicted our souls, and you take no notice?’ In fact in the day of your fast you find pleasure, and exploit your laborers.”

So God granted him what he requested.

In all fairness, Jabez deserved his request to be granted because God does not turn away from anyone who approaches Him with a sincere heart and in humility. That is He who He is. Start requesting him with a humble and earnest heart and you shall not be disappointed. For everyone who believes in God shall not be disappointed. This is according to Romans 10 vs 11.

You, too, may build up something long-lasting that will benefit you and your precious family. Therefore, do not forget to start your online business that shall lead you to passive income here.

Moreover, Jabez’ blessings led him to be more honorable than any of his brothers according to 1 Chronicles 4 vs 9, “Jabez was more honorable than his brothers, and his mother named him Jabez, saying, “Because I bore him in pain.”

Now you can see that after Jabez received all his blessings from God, he became a big blessing to his mother, his brothers and his community. He went about revealing god’s love to all the people he had caused pain. What a marvelous blessing. Because of his territorial expansion, his influence went far and wide.

Try joining the Wealthy Affiliate community here and you shall agree with me that your influence will go far and wide. This may be a method God wants to bless you with financially. I wish you God’s blessings upon your life. May success overtake you wherever you go.

Healthy Lifestyles Tips- The Zambian Culture of “Chilanga Mulilo”




Healthy Lifestyles Tips

WHAT IS “CHILANGA MULILO”?

This is a ceremony that takes place before the marriage ceremony. A day is set for the bridegroom-to-be to be officially accepted by the in-laws and be introduced to various kinds of delicacies that are cooked or baked in their home. Such a function excites the women folk and the men alike as it is an honor to be the center of attraction in the case of the bridegroom-to-be.

THE EXCITEMENT BEGINS

For women, it is a chance to start shopping the traditional regalia that they would wear on that day. The girl’s parents go on a shopping spree to find what to cook or bake on that particular day. The traditional drummer women approach the girl’s parents and showcase their drumming skills so that they may be hired to perform at that function. Other drummers may come making it difficult for the girl’s parents to decide who to hire.

Drummer group

WHICH DRUMMER GROUP IS TO BE CHOSEN?

Couples who are financially sound can hire as many as five different groups of performers to simply add the color to the ceremony. If there are many competitors among the traditional drummers, the hiring fee drops. You would sometimes be surprised to find that only one group is available and the exorbitant hiring fee could meet the expenses of hiring four groups. Sometimes the drumming group that is not chosen is willing to attend the traditional ceremony for interest’s sake. However, the girl’s parents have to give a token of appreciation afterwards.

THE DAY BEFORE “CHILANGA MULILO”

Relatives of the girl’s parents may contribute some foodstuffs to be cooked and presented to the bridegroom-to-be. The relatives from the mother’s side have as much say as those from the father’s side. Both groups work in harmony for the success of the event. Here is where the importance of keeping livestock comes in. People with livestock just slaughter not only a cow, but a goat and a pig as well. If not, the butcheries will celebrate the amount of money you shall dish out to them.

CHILANGA MULILO

CONFIRMATION OF ATTENDANCE THE DAY BEFORE THE EVENT

Another thing that must take place on this day is to ensure that the bridegroom-to-be is informed again to make a follow up on his friends he has invited for this big occasion to confirm their attendance.

THE ACTUAL DAY

A large crowd of women including the relatives of the girl gather early in the morning at the girl’s parent’s house to witness the cooking and baking that is to be done. Some women take this opportunity to learn or catch up with the know how of preparing certain delicacies. Other counselors are specially assigned to show the bride-to-be how to prepare certain dishes. She is brought amid songs and ululations to take part in the cooking and baking. Other women are there to specifically taste what is being cooked and baked so that they can approve what the bridegroom-to-be is going to eat.

Zambian culture

SHOWING THE GIRL’S PARENTS WHAT HAS BEEN COOKED

After everything has been cooked or baked, the girl’s parents are shown every delicacy that their future in-law is to taste. They do not have to taste the food themselves because their representatives have already done so.

THE PROCESSION ITSELF

This is part of an exciting event as drummers take over and lead the procession to the arranged house where the bridegroom-to-be and his companions are. A minimum of two companions is allowed but they encourage you to call a reasonable number of companions to help you demolish the heaps of foodstuffs on different plates and other serving dishes. Songs, dances and drumming relevant to the requirements of the occasion puts every listener and passerby in a festive mood.

HOW THE FOOD AND DRINKS ARE CARRIED

The excited women carry the food and drinks (modern or locally brewed) on their heads. They sing joyously as they dance along to the tunes of the drums. The bridegroom-to-be and his companions are highly expectant as they can hear the noise of the procession from quite a distance. They do not have to come out of the house to welcome the women, but they must wait patiently inside the house until the bridegroom-to-be’s hands are washed before the food is laid before them.

ACTIVITIES INSIDE THE HOUSE

Healthy Lifestyles tips

Even before the bridegroom-to-be’s hands are washed, the women dance and lie down in respect of their in-law to be. The companions are expected to dish out some money in appreciation of the cooks and their dancing party. The women would do their best to impress the menfolk so as to receive a generous amount of money. The big chunk of money goes to the leader of the whole procession. This is usually one of the marriage counselors chosen to prepare the girl for the institution of marriage.

THE BEST MAN FOR THE BRIDEGROOM-TO-BE

One of the companions for the bridegroom-to-be should be his best man to help him to understand the rituals or the current happenings. Other companions come in also to explain various things especially if the bridegroom-to-be is from another tribe or nationality. Everything is enjoyable as they look forward to the final part of consuming the foodstuffs and drinks.

ALONE AT LAST

The women retreat to the girl’s parent’s house after presenting all the foodstuffs and drinks they had just brought. It is a relief to the gentlemen as they remain to enjoy eating the different delicacies and the drinks whether modern or locally brewed. They remain in the same house eating and drinking for as long as they want. Other people may join them only upon invitation.

THE PLATES DO NOT HAVE TO BE RETURNED EMPTY

Even before they leave the house where they have dined, a marriage counselor advises not to have the plates returned without any money to show appreciation of the whole ceremony. Therefore, bridegroom-to-be is advised to choose well-to-do kind of men who would help him to ensure that the plates are returned with an appreciative amount of money.

OTHER PEOPLE ARE APPRECIATED

Depending on the amount of money received from the bridegroom-to-be and his companions, the girl’s parents can use part of that money to also appreciate some people who played different roles in the success of the events. That is why the need to be financially sound comes in because the more financial muscle you have, the ore colorful will be your “Chilanga Mulilo” celebration. Therefore, you can use this opportunity to try one path that can lead you to your financial independence. You can join by clicking here and you will never regret your action. Take your action now without any use of a credit card. Some opportunities knock only once. Do it now.

Enjoying Your Kitchen Party on Your Wedding Day

Enjoying Kitchen Party on your Wedding Day

This post is about Healthy Lifestyles – How to Enjoy Your Kitchen Party on Your Wedding Day. Many brides-to-be in the African context value kitchen parties as much as the wedding ceremony itself. It is a dream come true as the future bride enjoys the attention of many “unlucky” and “lucky” women in the presence of her future bridegroom and his escorts.

WHY “UNLUCKY?”

Some ladies consider themselves unlucky when they get advanced in years without securing a life partner. Therefore, they are envious during such occasions as kitchen parties as they admire those who have found a life partner to go through with the celebration of a kitchen party and a wedding ceremony. They regard them as being “lucky” especially if they have secured their partners before the age of thirty.

WHAT IS A KITCHEN PARTY?

In the African context, a kitchen party is referred to as an occasion when the parents of the bride-to-be invites many groups of women or individual women to attend the kitchen party as witnesses that their daughter has been counseled for her marriage preparation. The invited guests do not attend empty-handed but carry a gift for the bride-to-be.

Bride enjoying beautiful thoughts about the kitchen Party

IMPORTANCE OF THE GIFT TO THE BRIDE-TO-BE

The traditional African belief to help one to start her home on a good financial stand is upheld highly during such a ceremony. Therefore, people are invited to the kitchen party to specify what kinds of gifts are expected to be presented to the bride-to-be. The gift may be in monetary form equivalent to the desired gift or the gift itself.

VARIETY OF GIFTSSome Kitchen Party Gifts

Mostly the function is called a “kitchen party” because the items or gifts that are presented go towards helping to furnish the kitchen or even replace the old furniture or equipment that may be there. It may be a cooker, refrigerator or deep freezer. It may be a kitchen table and some chairs or even posts, sauce pans, plates and glasses.

WHY HAVE THE BRIDEGROOM-TO-BE IN ATTENDANCE?

Previously it was considered a taboo to have any man attend the proceedings of the kitchen party. In other words, it was a no go area for any man: father of the lady or her fiancé or any of their representatives. However, such a stance was abandoned when some parents started cheating about their daughter’s engagement and amassed all the gifts and money only to tell the people they had invited that the engagement had been broken off.

PREVIOUS ACTIVITIES LEADING TO THE KITCHEN PARTY

To be wedded

Nowadays it is common to see the bridegroom-to-be agree with the wife-to-be when to send a representative to the parents of the lady to declare publicly that his intentions towards the lady were serious enough to lead towards their marriage ceremony. The date would be set and before the appearance of the representative, the lady’s parents will have informed the closest family members of both sides to be present and witness the procedure.

REPRESENTATIVE ESCORTS THE BRIDEGROOM-TO-BE WITH TWO SPECIAL PLATES

It is a taboo for the bridegroom-to-be to go to the house of the bride-to-be without an elderly person as a representative. The latter becomes the spokesperson of the bridegroom-to-be. The two special plates contain an amount of money that remains in the house as a declaration that as long as the plates remain in that house, parents of the lady should not accept any other man apart from the one who brought the special plates.

ANOTHER ROLE OF THE REPRESENTATIVE

Apart from presenting the special plates of the bridegroom-to-be to the lady’s parents, the representative’s role is to introduce the bridegroom-to-be to the parents. Additionally, he is the same one to conduct marriage counseling sessions to the bridegroom-to-be. If he is not in the position to do so, he will help the bridegroom-to-be to find other marriage counselors.

After Marriage counselling

BEFORE THE SPECIAL PLATES REMAIN IN THE HOUSE

Before the special plates remain in the house, the lady is brought to come and identify the people who have brought them. If she says she is aware of the special visitors and is agreeable to the plates remaining in the house, the visitors are dismissed with courtesy.

DISCUSSION AFTER THE SPECIAL PLATES REMAIN IN THE HOUSE OF THE LADY

After having got detailed information about their future-in-law, a detailed discussion takes place to decide whether the gentleman would be their rightful son-in-law or not. If yes, how much should be charged as “lobola” or bride price. By the way, the economic status of the bridegroom-to-be determines the amount of the bride price. The richer the person is, the higher the bride price. Some tribes charge in form of cattle while others will accept money equivalent to the number of cattle charged.

THE SECOND VISIT OF THE REPRESENTATIVE

Having been informed to return to the house of the lady after a short period, usually three days to one week, the representative of the bridegroom goes back to hear the details of acceptance or rejection of the bridegroom-to-be by returning the special plates.

BARGAINING OF THE BRIDE PRICE

If you have a “clever” go-between or representative of the bridegroom-to-be, he shall pull down the bride price charged by half or so. Actually, a lady who has been educated to master degree level will fetch a higher bride price than the lady with a degree. A degree holder will also fetch higher bride price than a diploma holder and so on and so on. It is up to the go-between to negotiate that men who have good intentions of marriage are rare and that much respect need to be accorded to them because of that.

Kind of Marriage Ceremony

WHAT KIND OF MARRIAGE CEREMONY?

CREATE A FREE ACCOUNT OF WEALTHY AFFILIATE TODAY BY CLICKING HERE

Again the kind of marriage ceremony shall be determined according to the financial muscle of the bridegroom-to-be as he is going to shoulder the major expenses. Sometimes the lady might come from a well-to-do family and are willing to sponsor the wedding for the sake of their prestige in the community.

WHAT KIND OF KITCHEN PARTY WILL TAKE PLACE?

The kind of kitchen party to take place determines the financial powers of both sides and one of the sides whether female or male. It is the kind of function the ladies do not want to miss. The function requires a good amount of money Wealthy Affiliate can prepare you adequately to creating an online business that can adequately satisfy a flamboyant kitchen party ceremony that everyone can admire. You can find out by clicking here. That is how you can enjoy your kitchen party on your wedding day if it takes place before going to the reception.

HOW POSSIBLE IS THAT?

Have your kitchen party scheduled between church marriage ceremony and the wedding reception on the same day. You reduce greatly the amount of time spent at the kitchen party by arranging people bringing gifts in groups instead of individual presentation of gifts. Remember, the Wealthy Affiliate community can make it possible to enjoy your own kitchen party or sponsor your daughter’s kitchen party. You can join freely here and you shall never regret your decision.

HOW TO MAKE MONEY ONLINE FOR FINANCIAL FREEDOM IN 2020


Making money online

How to Make Money Online for Financial Freedom is the aim of all the people who search the internet looking for financial gain. The majority of such people end up earning money which many people could refer to as pocket money not something to write home about. They get engaged in filling in surveys or some copy and paste jobs or even typing articles in certain cases. Some can even tutor or teach online but they never get liberated enough to reach their desired financial goals.

The story is told in the holy Bible of the Israelites who wanted political independence from the Pharaoh of Egypt for 400 years. Many attempts to gain political independence from the Egyptians did not yield any fruitful results. The situation was becoming hopeless until Moses was called upon by God to go back to Egypt and liberate His people for He had come to rescue them Himself. Moses would be used as a channel for releasing the Israelites from slavery.

The worst hit are workers from developing countries who may have a college degree but their salaries are nothing compared to their counterparts in the developed countries. No wonder the brain drain is there from the third world countries. Take for instance a medical doctor in the United States of America can have an average income of $25,000 monthly while his counterpart in the third world cannot go beyond $5,000 monthly.

Making money online can make you earn more than a medical doctor

Other professionals fall into a similar category where the workers in the developed countries earn five times higher than their counterparts in the developing countries. No wonder Libya has recently become a gateway to financial freedom by providing a route for such workers to escape their financial doldrums. Libyans provide such workers passage to financial freedom in Europe and beyond.

Going back to our story of the Israelites, we find Moses challenging Pharaoh to release the Israelites so that they could be ready to go unconditionally and worship their God in the land of promise: Canaan Land. Pharaoh is adamant and ten miracles ensue to prove to him that God is Supreme and can have His way any time.

Miracles upon Egypt included turning the Nile River into blood, littering the land with frogs, darkness, hail storms and some more. The final one was to strike dead the firstborn in Egypt, man and animal alike. When this miracle finally occurred, Pharaoh was in a hurry to release the Israelites together with their cattle, goats and sheep to go and use the animals to sacrifice to their Supreme God. Fortunately for the Israelites, their neighbors gave them whatever gold, silver and other precious stones they had.

When the Israelites finally left Egypt, they thought they were politically free. However, their worst nightmare came when Pharaoh changed his mind and organized his army to pursue their slaves. The Israelites saw Egyptian soldiers coming and their hearts melted and cried to Moses. Fortunately, Moses assured the Israelites to stand still and see how God would liberate them. It was an anxious moment as they were sandwiched between the Red Sea and the Egyptian soldiers. This detailed narration can be found in Exodus chapter 14.

Makin money online leading to financial freedom despite obstacles

The narration of the release of the Israelites can stand for workers who are able to find employment online or offline but do not reach financial freedom and so they have no joyful songs to sing about. As for Moses, he obeyed God’s instructions to raise his rod against the Red Sea so that by so doing, the miracle of creating a passage for the Israelites on a dry bed between the Sea Water could be created.

In the meantime, God brought a pillar of fire to protect the Israelites from the approaching Egyptian Army while He was busy dividing the sea to offer safe passage for His people. He wanted them to experience complete freedom. Jesus Christ was later referring to this kind of freedom and He said, “If the Son sets you free, you are free, indeed.” (John chapter 8 vs 36).

The story unfolds by witnessing the Egyptian Army drowning in the Red Sea because they thought they would also cross the sea the way the Israelites had done. They made a grave mistake and the floods swallowed them and they died while shouting for help.

It was at this point that Miriam realized they were free indeed and took to singing and dancing with musical instruments. At last, they were free, indeed. They had just witnessed the deaths of their enemies who had troubled them for many generations, but political independence was there to be celebrated.

Making money online leads to different kinds of happiness and celebrations

The story is true of prisoners who escape from their jail sentences. They come out of prison enjoying the freedom of being away from prison walls. However, inwardly they know that they are not free, indeed, because often they have to look over their soldiers to see if anyone can recognize them as prison escapees. This is so because they are not free, indeed.

If you are dreaming of being financially free, surveys will not make you rich but affiliate marketing will.

Let me now introduce you to a method that can lead you to financial independence even if you have been in the doldrums for a long time. The Israelites obeyed God and Moses to lead them to a place where they could sing freely because of their freedom. You, too, can be introduced to the Wealthy Affiliate community here. By following their affiliate marketing training without using your credit card, you shall end up being financially independent.

 

Many people have tried leveraging the internet for financial independence but I can assure you that only those who allow the Wealthy Affiliate community to assist them achieve their financial dream become financially independent, indeed. Be free to join them here and you shall never regret your decision. Many people today are enslaved by finances. They work hard to earn a decent living but their wages are nothing compared to many people who find financial independence when they work online.

Wealthy Affiliate Review vs Fired Amazon Workers Amid COVID-19










  • Wealthy Affiliate vs Fired Amazon workersThis is Wealthy Affiliate Review vs Fired Amazon Workers Amid COVID-19. Did it ever occur to you that an incident may occur when you can lose interest in the job you have enjoyed performing for years on end? Did it ever occur to you that if your life is threatened not even the job you love can be enjoyed? Here is a chance to show you how Wealthy Affiliate can make you have an opportunity to work at home and enjoy passive income you may not have dreamed of.

    Both Yahoo News and New York Times showed headlines recently when some people lost employment at Amazon. The clips can make you understand better what had transpired before the incidents. Here are some headlines:

    Amazon has fired the worker at its Staten Island warehouse who organized a walkout on Monday to demand greater protections from the company amid the coronavirus outbreak.

    “Chris Smalls, 31, a management assistant at the facility, told The Post he was canned in a phone call following Monday afternoon’s strike.

    “They pretty much retaliated against me for speaking out,” said Smalls. “I don’t know how they sleep at night.”

    He and dozens of other employees at the Bloomfield warehouse walked off the job to demand Amazon temporarily close and clean the facility after a worker tested positive for COVID-19 there last week.”

    So who cannot prefer his/her own life to a job? If there is a life threatening incident or incidents at the work place, one better resign or else no one including himself /herself would be willing to find him/her dead. No, no one, indeed. Therefore, it was not surprising for Amazon workers to feel threatened with the COVID-19 and arm themselves by demanding better protection. That is how a human being behaves, naturally. Many people refer to it as the instinct for survival.

    Wealthy Affiliate vs Fired Amazon workers

    Unfortunately, it was while the instinct for survival was at its peak that some workers lost their jobs. How sad! But did you know that some unfortunate situations end up giving some people very fortunate ones. For instance, one girl was dumped by her fiancé and she cried her head off. She later came to realize that, because of that incident of being dumped, she eventually ended up marrying a man who took her to spend her life with him in the land of her dreams. Funny how life treats some people.

    Not long ago, a man was sad that he had missed a bus that was going to take him to a place of his job interview. Upon arriving at the venue the following day, he was told that he was too late for the interviews and that he would better try some other companies. However, when he explained that half the people on that bus had perished due to a road traffic accident and that he was lucky he had not been on that bus, the company officials were overjoyed and offered him the job.

    Where is the narration leading to? Are you in the position to fire your boss right now or you are not yet ready to do so because you are financially incapable of looking after yourself and family? There is one alternative solution to your problem because Wealthy Affiliate is here to help you with a free account to enable you to build an online business which can lead you to financial independence.

    Unfortunately, one person does not agree with my idea leading to your financial independence and you can compare his review here: Craju.com

    However, there are many people from various backgrounds who join Wealthy Affiliate and find the training supporting enough to create their own online business which enables them to fire their bosses. Domena is one person who joined in January 2018 but her experiences inside Wealthy Affiliate can be useful to you as you may learn many things about affiliate marketing:

    March 2020 Income Report – How I Made Money with Affiliate Marketing

    Last Update: April 14, 2020

    This is my first written income report. I won’t lie, income reports are kinda scary because you don’t know who reads them and there are all kinds of people out there, but I wrote this for the good ones.

    I remember when I first looked into affiliate marketing, I loved the concept, but I desired to know what was possible.

    Affiliate marketing is unlike other careers because as a nurse, doctor, or engineer, you can look on the Department of Labor website and get a roundabout number of approximate income you can expect.

    With affiliate marketing, it’s a fairly new career field, and the name isn’t on formal government listings to state how much affiliate marketers earn. Moreover, it would work out very similar to sales because it’s commission-based and some earn high and others don’t earn anything, but it’s not there to see.

    To make things worse, you have people that lie, leave out lots of information, or the anomaly stories that could lead you to believe something is possible that’s actually quite rare.

    Don’t be Shy but Don’t be Entitled Either

    I’ve had several of my referrals shyly ask me “How much do you make?” and I don’t mind sharing, but I want to squash the discomfort. I thought my video income reports would be more helpful, but maybe you guys like blog posts better?

    Wealthy Affiliate vs Fired Amazon workers

    My blog posts get much more traction than my video training. Do you guys like written text more than video? (leave the answer below because I want to know)

    I make what I make, and I’m content with what it is right now and the potential (even though I’d love the number to go up–hahahaha). I’m not ashamed even though I know I’ve worked hard enough that I could’ve made alot more if I’d been doing something else.

    I know it will add up soon and the incremental growth of a commission-based income will mean I’ll pass what a job could give, and I’ll have no cap.

    Hopefully, my income report can play as one piece to the puzzle that can show what’s possible for startup entrepreneurs who decide to monetize with affiliate marketing.


    Wealthy Affiliate vs Fired Amazon workers

    Questions I Used to Ask

    I remember when I started, I desired to know:

    Is this possible for a mom at home with no childcare?

    Is it possible for my site to still succeed with all of my personal issues going on?

    Will I be able to make this work?

    Am I doing what it takes?

    and the questions would go on

    So, I totally relate when members inbox the same types of questions–that’s why I’m sharing this income report.

    For those reading, I don’t share income reports bragging, but I want you to be confident that this is a real career choice that can be done despite:

    Obstacles

    Setbacks

    Skill level differences

    Wealthy Affiliate vs Fired Amazon workers

    Languages

    Or, beliefs

    In this income report, I want to share my journey, so you can understand how I got to the income I’m at, what I could’ve done to get there faster (in my opinion), and how I plan to improve my results going forward.

    Disclaimer: My story is unique. Everyone has their own predisposed skills, personal challenges, learning curves, and other things that impacts how quickly or slowly you progress in business. Your story will be unique too. Heck, maybe you’ll be an anomaly that excels much faster than I have!

    f you’d like to see more of a look at what’s possible in the industry, I’ve compiled some statistics (including income growth stats) that can help with that here.

    When I started at Wealthy Affiliate

    I joined Wealthy Affiliate January 25, 2018. When I started, I was married with a 10-year old son and a 4-month old daughter. I was homeschooling, raising a newborn, and I was the primary caretaker for the kids. I didn’t have childcare and my husband worked 12+ hour days in the construction business we started.

    I was doing my affiliate marketing tasks around my personal life. While walking my daughter in her stroller, doing dishes, or cooking, I would be listening to Jay’s webinars, doing research for a blog post, or honing my craft in some way. When my kids would go to sleep, I would stay up and hammer out as much content as I could: sometimes 1 post per day and sometimes up to 4 posts in a day.

    I was working full-time (40 hours+ when I could) by laying my kids down at night at a good time, working during naps, and waking up early mornings, but there were many times when I had too many life distractions going on to fit in that type of time. My availability was very unpredictable because I had one child in and out of the hospital and parenting can just be unpredictable sometimes!

    I don’t know how I was doing it, but I was also doing freelance contracts: SEO, web design, and ghostwriting for people until December 2018. Moreover, the lack of time pressed me to be more productive with what I had.

    Intentional scarcity works.

    After December 2018, my husband and I saw proof affiliate marketing would be the best option for me to make an income for our family because it didn’t have the customer deadlines, and other things that were difficult to manage with my kids’ situations at that time.

    Wealthy Affiliate vs Fired Amazon workers

    As time went on and I started earning more in my business and self-analyzing about how to make things work more comfortably for me and my kids, I decided to put my son into middle school, and my daughter into childcare. Since October 2019, I’ve had an empty house during the day (until COVID-19).

    You can see many of my milestones in my WA blog, but to name a few:

    I made my first sale at a little over 1 month of joining WA

    I hit $1000/mo at 15 months

    400,000 words written and 167 blog posts in my first 6 months

    I wrote nearly 600,000 words and wrote 250 posts in my first year

    I started making over $2k in Nov 2019 (and it’s fluctuated a bit as you’ll see)

    You can get a birds’ eye view of my first two years at WA here.

    Some Things That I Wasted Time On

    Looking back, I have no regrets, but I do have guesses about things I could have done to make my journey faster than it was. When Moreover, about it, these are the things Moreover, I could’ve done to get where I am (or past where I am faster):

    I could’ve started with a focused and narrow niche

    I’ve always been attracted to lifestyle sites and media personalities. People like Oprah, John Maxwell, Dave Ramsey, and others who speak on life and business in a way that uplifts people and makes them want to be the best version of themselves–that’s who I want to be when I grow up.

    The whole “niche site” concept doesn’t fit into where I want to go, but over time, I’ve learned that a lifestyle site or brand is really a huge compilation of several niche sites combined in one platform. The thing is, if I start them all at once, it will take me FOREVER to get anywhere.

    As a result, I stopped writing about all things entrepreneurship, and started to focus more, build my expertise more, and go deep then scale out. I’m still working on that.

    Wealthy Affiliate vs Fired Amazon workers

    1. I won’t lie, I have lots of interest areas, so it’s easy for me to want to veer off, but I try to focus and be disciplined about going deep then scaling out.

    2. I could’ve started with 1 site rather than 5

    When I started here, I thought starting a website and running it was much easier than it is. As a result, I started a bunch of sites at once. Instead of making 1 logo, I made 5. Instead of making 1 About page, I made 5. Instead of doing keyword research for 1 site, I did it for 5.

    I also did a lot more work to plan, write, and promote those sites, but it wasn’t a good use of my time if I desired to get revenue fast. I could’ve been aiming all of my effort in one direction, and instead of having 4 about pages, I could’ve had 1 About page and 4 more blog posts than I do.

    When you add up all of the effort I distributed across all of the sites, it’s like taking a $50 grocery budget and trying to make 1 year’s worth of meals. It’s like I had one ingredient for one year’s worth of meals but no complete dinner.

    Maybe my analogies are bad. Hopefully you get what I mean.

    I could’ve mastered one thing at a time rather than attack everything at once

    When you go back to my WA blog, you’ll see I did quite a few experiments in my first year. I’m happy I did. I desired to know if I’d like Quora, so I tried it. I desired to know if I’d like Pinterest, so I tried it. I desired to know if I’d like ads, so I tried it.

    I figured out that there’s so much to do in this industry, but you can’t master everything at once. This industry is bigger than learning kindergarten thru High School graduation.

    Kyle and Carson have been in the industry for 15+ years, and they still say they’re learning stuff!

    I can learn:

    Copywriting

    Content writing

    Web design

    Graphic design

    Sales, buyer psychology, and negotiation

    video and presentation

    social media marketing

    Public Relations

    a Trade (like accounting, bookkeeping, legal, etc.)

    Analytics and Data Interpretation

    and so many more skills that can drastically help in our businesses

    …But, It takes time to develop them all. There’s no drug or pill that makes up magically become master entrepreneurs or affiliate marketers. I wish we could just sniff all the skills in or something, but it doesn’t happen that way. Hahahaha.

    I learned that it’s alot of things I like and things I can do and be good at, but to get the best results, I have to be narrow and focused rather than be a generalist.

    As Dan Lok says, you build wealth by mastering a high-paying skill first. General Practitioners make good money, but Cardiologists make more because they specialize.

    Affiliate marketing is a high-paying skill for those who specialize in it. The one who wants to freelance, do affiliate marketing, e-commerce, and everything at once (like I did) will have a harder time than the one who builds one income stream as big as it can go, then moves onto stack another one.

    Cardone says in order to build multiple streams of income, you build one stream then make it as big as it will go (get more traffic and sales, build your network, negotiate with employers, upsell current customers, raise prices, add on another relevant product or service, etc.), then when the first is as big as it can go, then add on another stream.

    In online business, it works the same way. The “generalist” who tries to do everything at once or write about everything at once may make some money, but someone who says they specialize in makes more because their experience seems more relevant

    When you have a team, this can change a bit, but for a solopreneur, this is really important.

    4. I could’ve started preparing to be an online entrepreneur earlier in life

    I went to a performing arts school then joined the military straight out of high school. Moreover, I had a decent amount of relevant experience that made it easier for me than for some. Either way, I had no idea I’d be starting an online business a few years back.

    In theory, I could’ve started developing my skills earlier had I known when I was younger what I’d be doing now.

    I’ve had some referrals that are very young and focused. It excites me that they’re developing these skills so early. It makes me know we’ll be living in a completely different world by the time I’m 80.  

    Why My Obstacles MaI share my obstacles not for a pity party. Clearly, I’m proud of my journey. It’s built a lot of character, friends, and wisdom along the way even if I haven’t hit 7-figures or become a trillionaire yet.I want to be honest with you that I’ve had challenges and you will too. You might be starting here without graduating high school or without as much experience as me. You may also be starting here with much more experience than me. It helps to be real about your journey, so you can shape accurate expectations.

    How March Went for Me

    March was crazy with all of the COVID-19 craziness. I usually would post my income reports in a video, but since my kids have been home, video has been a bit more challenging. Even with that, here’s what I’ve been able to accomplish:

    I wrote more than 10,000 words

    I sent more than 8 emails out to my email list

    I responded to 100% of my blog comments, social media comments, and Youtube comments that I knew about (because sometimes they go to spam or somewhere and I don’t know about them)

    I posted 11 blog posts

    I posted 12 Videos

    I responded to my referrals as quickly as I could and with the best answers I had

    I started on Pinterest by designing 10+ pins daily and repinning 25+ pins daily, and got my impressions up by 468%

    Things I’m Working to Improve

    I want to improve the quality of the content I create on each platform. The quality is high enough to make the income I have, but I want to continue to expand in the market, so I know I will need to improve the quality of what I write, the videos I create, and the graphics I make as well, so each piece I make is my practice.

    March Income

    The income that I earned in March is what I recieved in my hands in April.

    The total came to $2268.73 from 7 different affiliate programs. Wealthy Affiliate is the most predictable and the largest income stream I have in my business at this point.

    I know they will pay on the 1st consistently, so I am the most excited about them as a platform to help others and as an income stream.

    March Expenses

    Out of my April 1st income earned in March, I spent 100% because I do a zero-based budget.

    1. I put 3% away for working capital or profit. I keep a separate checking account for working capital or profit and take that out first before paying myself or anything else.

    I plan to use that for big purchases, hiring in the future, owner bonuses at some point, and so on. I know it’s not much that I put aside this time, but it’s something.

    2. I paid myself 53% or $1194.16, then my income taxes came out of that.

    3. I spent 18% or $412.37 on tools and equipment. I like to spend money on software and things that help me to:

    Do email marketing

    Convert more people onto my email list

    Understand the visitors that come to my website better

    Make it easier to complete the website management tasks I do

    Pay myself and track my income/expenses

    Seek legal advice (when needed)

    Give me good business advice

    Be more productive

    Or, help me hone my craft

    Wealthy Affiliate vs Fired Amazon workers

    At this point, I haven’t hired, but that’s why it’s a good thing to put profit first and begin saving money for hiring later. I decided to invest in ads and more customer acquisition first rather than hiring writers right now. I’m not sure how that will work, but that’s my interpretation of the training.

    4. I spent $9.99 (less than 1%) on a virtual mailbox

    5. I spent 9% on customer acquisition costs or ads.

    6. I still have $370 that I haven’t assigned to anything yet because I’m trying to decide between education costs or to bump up my ad budget since it’s going pretty well in my opinion.

    What do you think? Learn more or Get more customers? I like sales and potential sales, so I’m leaning more towards the advertising side.

    My last 5 months’ income looked like this:

    1583

    1602

    $2590

    $2193

    $1977

    The average income is $1989.

Wealthy Affiliate vs British Airways Grounding Planes During Covid-19

The prosperity of British Airways can be confirmed when the company generated more than $1 billion on a single air route in a year (from 1 April 2017, to 31 March 2018, on the New York-JFK – London-Heathrow route).

Wealthy Affiliate vs British Airways

The prosperity of British Airways was ongoing until CORONA-19 struck in the latter months of 2019. It was a shock to China alone but the advent of 2020 made Europe and the United States of America accuse China of allowing the corona virus to spread to their territories. The disease went on to paralyze the transport systems of the world including the grounding of British Airways.


Just like the flames in the picture above, fire fighters have failed to extinguish the fire that is burning the economies of the world including the grounding of the British Airways planes. Most politicians are watching helplessly the harmful impact of the COVID-19 impact on their countries’ economy. Workers retreat to their home with or without paid leave.

Wealthy Affiliate vs British Airways

For some workers, they wonder how the hell they are going to survive during the lock down in the midst COVID-19. Other workers know that the probability of going back to their cherished job may not be there. Some workers may enter into depression because of the gloomy picture that the pandemic is pausing.

How To Create a 6 Figure Website

Last Update: May 19, 2018,

Affiliate 1208

I’ve struggled online and know how frustrating it is to work your butt off and not see results (My first year I didn’t make a dime). I also know what it’s like to build a successful niche website and see it disappear overnight because of a change in Google. I know what it’s like to get back up after something like that to make an even more successful website in a short period that’s Google penalty proof.

My two and half years in internet marketing has seen some ups and downs but I’m finally completely confident in my abilities and have a very good idea of how to be a success online. You can read more about my experiences inside the members’ area.

I’m creating this guide to help anyone frustrated and not seeing any results.

If you’re one of these people, I have very good news for you. It’s way WAY easier than you think. My strategy is basically free and takes about 6 months to see results.

In this training I’m going to show you everything I’ve learned in the last 2 and a half years all the way from niche selection, to keyword research, to writing your content, to optimizing your content and additional tips and resources to guarantee the best rankings possible.

You should have all the tools you need after reading through this training to build six figures website in less than 18 months and you may get there in less than a year.

What’s A 6 Figure Website?

There’s two ways to look at this. The first is to actually make 6 figures a year which is a little over $8,000 a month. The second is to look at the overall value of a website and how much you’d get it if you wanted to sell it.

Typically, you’ll get 20 to 30 times you monthly income if you sell your website. So a website making $3,000 a month could be sold for anywhere from $60,000 to $90,000.

Right now my website is earning around $1200 a week (which is around $5,000 a month). It only took me 6 and half months to reach this point and my last website got up to around $2500 in 6 months.

I’m currently at the second version of 6 figures but should be making over $7,000 a month pretty soon.

There’s Only Two Things I’m Asking From You

The first is you have to at least be done with the third course in the training here at Wealthy Affiliate before reading through all this. You need to know the basics and fundamentals of affiliate marketing to understand my training and I won’t be going over the small things you learn in the training.

The second is to go through everything in this training before messaging me and asking me to help or to look at your website. I understand you’re eager to make money but I’d prefer not to have to go over something that’s already in this training. If you need clarification or help after you can feel free to message me and I’ll help you out with what ever you need.

Overview Of My Strategy

My strategy is very basic and it’s almost identical to the one taught here at WA. The only difference is I write lengthy “best of lists” with the year (An example would be “Best toaster ovens 2018,”) instead of individual reviews.

There’re many reasons I like these posts better and I’ll go over more about why in the training. Just know a single best of post, when done right, can bring in thousands of clicks a month and thousands of dollars a month. My website only has 35 “best of” posts and I’m getting about 40,000 clicks a month and $5,000 a month. That’s pretty good bang for your buck.


Here’s a break down of what’s in the training:

  • Choosing a niche
  • Finding keywords
  • Finding products
  • Writing your best of posts
  • On page seo
  • Additional resources to help you

It all starts with niche selection and that’s where we’ll start.

Niche Selection

Alright, you’ve come to the conclusion you want to make six figures online. In order to do this and to use my strategy you’ll need to choose the right niche.

Here’s what I look for in a niche:

1) Must be fairly broad and not too narrow.

2) Must have at least 50 best of posts I can write and preferably best of posts with the year that get traffic.

That’s basically it. If you want to read all my thoughts on choosing a niche, click here: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.co

Some people try to make this way more complicated than it has to be but follow those two suggestions and you’ll be fine.

Just so you’re a hundred percent sure about this I’ll show you how to do this.

First go to Amazon and click the departments tab on the left and under the search bar. It’ll bring you to this page: https://www.amazon.com/gp/site

If you clicked that link you’ll see that Amazon basically organizes things in different niches. There’re large departments like home and garden, electronics, automotive, sports and outdoors, beauty and health. In each large departments there’s subgroups too, like bed and bath, furniture, pet supplies, home theater, musical instruments, etc.

Any one of these niches has 6 figure potential and for the sake of this training we’ll look at Kitchen and Dining.

Click this link to look at the kitchen and dining section: https://www.amazon.com/kitchen

They organize everything into keywords!

Are they the keywords we’re looking for, though? Go to the next section to find out!

Keyword Research

There’re many reasons I prefer to write best of posts instead of individual reviews.

Top reasons include:

1) I find it easier to write to a 300 word description of 10 to 15 products in one post than 1500 words about a single product in an individual review.

2) Best of posts bring in much more traffic than review posts. I have best of posts that get 6,000 clicks a month. When you write the best of post you end up ranking for a million different terms and not just the original keyword.

Wealthy Affiliate vs British Airways

3) Best of lists with the year are easy to rank and attract motivated buyers. These keywords are extremely low competition and if you follow the advice in this training you’ll find it pretty easy to get page 1 rankings for each one. A lot of times you’ll get top 5, top 3 and sometimes number one overall. People looking for the most up to date products tend to want to buy too.

These keywords can be a little elusive to find, though, but once you understand how to find them you’ll see them everywhere.

Let’s take Kitchen and Dining for example. Go back to this link: https://www.amazon.com/kitchen

Click the small appliance section and it brings you here: https://www.amazon.com/b/ref=l

Wealthy Affiliate vs British Airways

You’ll see these sections: slow cookers, microwave ovens, food processors, rice cookers, blenders, juicers, contact grills, ovens and toasters, compact refrigerators, counter top burners, ice cream machines, waffle irons, deep fryers, bread machines, coffee machines, tea machines, express machines, wine cellars, electric griddles, electric skillets and on and on and on.

Let’s check each one in the free keyword tool at WA.

1) Best Slow Cookers 2017: searches, 387 competition: 60 (VERY GOOD KEYWORD)

2) Best counter top microwaves 2017: searches 387, competition: 25 (VERY GOOD KEYWORD)

3) Best food processors 2017: searches 274, competition: 26 (VERY GOOD KEYWORD)

4) Best rice cookers 2017: searches 128, competition, 51 (VERY GOOD KEYWORDS)

You see where I’m going here?

Each one of those keywords work and this is just the small appliance section! We haven’t gotten to bake ware, cookware or dining.

Here’s why I say each of those lists has potential to bring thousands clicks a month too:

1) Best slow cookers 2017: searches 387

2) best slow cooker 2017: searches 103

3) best slow cooker reviews: searches 187

4) slow cook reviews ratings: searches 136

If you write a “Best slow cookers 2017” post and do it right you’ll rank for all those terms too.

Go through the kitchen and dining section and you’ll find hundreds of keywords that work and get a lot of traffic. There’s more than enough for a six figures website and there may be enough there for a 7 figures website.

Wealthy Affiliate vs British Airways

Also, sometimes I’ll write the best of post that doesn’t have the year but is specific. For example, best “product” for kids, best “product” for women, best “product” for men, etc.

Now you want to find the right products for each section. This might surprise you but you DON’T want to just type in best slow cookers into Amazon and use the products on their first page. The first page of Amazon tends to be cheap products. You’ll want to research products on different retail sites and then find them on Amazon. We’ll dig deeper into this in the next section.

Finding Products

I’ll repeat what I said in the last section: Don’t just take the products on the first page of Amazon. These products tend to be cheap and you’ll be leaving commissions on the table if you use them.

Let’s say you want to find the top 15 slow cookers. Here’s what you should do.

Go to Google and just type in slow cookers. You’ll see the first result is Walmart. Click that and it brings you here: https://www.walmart.com/browse

All you want to do is find the Walmart top sellers on Amazon and create a link for them. You’ll notice that on the top it organizes slow cookers into under 3 quarts, 4 to 6 quarts, and 7-8 quarts.

If Walmart took time to organize it this way it’s safe to assume they did that for a reason.

When you go to write your “Best Slow Cookers 2018,” post I would organize it the same way. The first section I would do slow cookers under 3 quarts (do top 5), then the second section I would do 4 to 6 quartz (top 5) and then I would do 7 to 8 quarts (top 5).

Click the under 3 quarts section and it brings you here: https://www.walmart.com/browse

First one is the Hamilton Beach 3 Quart slow cooker. Let’s check if it’s on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=n

It is! There’s many versions of it too. Personally I would link to the one with the most reviews, which is this one: https://www.amazon.com/Hamilto

This how you’ll want to find each product. Always go to Google and type your keyword in without the word best or the year. If you’re going to write “best drip coffee makers 2018,” go to Google and type in drip coffee makers. Look in the Google Search results and look at the ads before Google search. You’ll find the best products and make the most money this way.

Wealthy Affiliate vs British Airways

Here’s my last tip when finding products. Get your products ahead of time before writing your posts. I’ll do product research for 5 different keywords in one day. For the next few weeks I’ll write the product descriptions of what I came up with. It’s much more efficient to do it this way and you’ll get more done, per day.

Speaking of writing, that’s what the next section covers. You’ll see exactly how to rank these keywords on Google page one and how to write them so you get the most sales.

Writing Your Best Of Posts

You have your niche. You found some awesome keywords. You even found a bunch of quality products to link to.

Now it’s time to write.

Here are the rules for writing the best of post:

1) You must write at least 3,000 words per 10 products. My last website (I was still inexperienced) I wrote about 1200 -1500 words per 10 products and got hit with the Google Fred update in March. This update penalized websites that aggressively monetized and having so few words and so many affiliate links fit that description. Overnight my posts went from page to 1 to page 5 and I went from $2500 a month to $200 a month. Ouch. Now I write 3000 word, 4000 word, 5000 word and up to 7000 word posts and make double what I did before.

Wealthy Affiliate vs British Airways

2) Write in a breezy, conversational tone. Use the word “you” a lot. “This slow cooker is a product that I know you’ll love. It’s packed to the brim with a bunch of great features and is high quality. You’ll really appreciate what this slow cooker can do for you if decide on it.”

3) When you mention a feature or benefit make sure to also add how that feature will help the person. Don’t just say a slow cooker has easy to carry handles. Say “this slow cooker has easy to use handles. Because of this you’ll be able to carry this product around without spilling or burning yourself which is the last thing you want.”

4) Add a short buying guide before you get into the products (500 to 800 words). Just quickly go over the top 3 things to consider when choosing a slow cooker (Google how to choose a slow cooker for ideas).

5) Add a link to the product on Amazon after each description. You can just put “take a closer look at this and that slow cooker” and link that or you can go here: https://dabuttonfactory.com/ and make a call to action button. When you add the button to your post just put the link in then.

So here’s how it would look for “Best slow cookers 2018,”

Short intro (100 to 200 words).

How To Choose A Slow Cooker (500 to 600 words). In this section you can add a YouTube too. So find the top 3 things to consider when making the selection and then add a video at the beginning or end. You don’t want this section too long but just enough to give the reader enough information to make a purchase.

Next you write the description of each product. Here’s what I would write about this crock pot: https://www.amazon.com/Crock-P

“If you’re in the market for an affordable slow cooker that can serve a lot of people, this is one that you must consider. The reason I say this is that this product is 6 quarts and that means you’ll be able to serve up to 7 people at a time. Plus, it won’t cost an arm and a leg.

One of my favorite features of this slow cooker is it comes with a digital timer. You won’t have to worry if you’re over cooking or under cooking your food because of this. The timer goes all the way up to 20 hours too!

If that’s not enough you’ll also like that it comes with:

  • Very large carry handles prevents the food from getting out all over you. You won’t have to worry about getting burned either.
  • Once cook time is completed this product switches to warm. This ensures that you won’t overcook the meal if your attention accidentally slips.
  • The locking lid is extremely reliable and easy to use. This is another feature that keeps the food inside and not on your floors.
  • This product is microwavable without the lid too. This is just another reason this crock pot is so convenient and a must have.

Wealthy Affiliate vs British Airways

As you can see, there’s a lot to love here. In fact, there are thousands of reviews on Amazon about this product and almost all are overwhelmingly positive. If you want to see what other customers are saying about this product, click below:

“Link to product”

And it’s as simple as that. As you get more practice with this you’ll be able to write these in your sleep. That description was 250 words. If you have 15 slow cookers that brings you to 3750 words. Add the intro (150 words), the short buyers guide (600 words) and the conclusion (150 words) and you get 4650 words. That is more than enough to get you on page 1 for Best Slow Cookers 2018, and to avoid penalties in the future.

Here are various best of lists that should look at. They all follow this basic guideline and are on page one for their keywords:

https://coffeemakerpicks.com/b

https://www.monitornerds.com/b

https://www.coffeemakersadviso

https://www.fourthestatecoffee

https://10beasts.com/best-elec

There’re thousands of these types of posts too. I’ve done an in depth research on 20 different successful niche websites and they all follow this basic outline. Here’s some link to those posts: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.co

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.co

****THIS IS IMPORTANT****

You DON’T want the year in the URL of your post, only the title. So you can title it “Best Slow Cookers 2018,” but edit the URL to just “best slow cookers.” The reason for this is when 2019 comes around you can just change the title to 2019 and not have to redo the entire thing. You’ll want to update your list with a few products when it turns to 2019 but that’s all you’ll have to do besides updating the title.

In the next section we’re going to be looking at “on page seo” which are little tips to ensure you rank the highest possible.

On Page SEO

This section will be short and is a just few tips to help you rank your highest. You should do these on every single post you do.

1) Have your keyword in the first 100 words. If you’re doing best slow cookers 2018, you’ll want to at least use the term “best slow cookers” in the introduction.

2) Link out to trusted websites. Not just Amazon either. I would try to link out to 4 to 6 known websites every post. This shows Google your active in the community and trustworthy.

3) Link to your own content. This is called internal linking and each post should have 3 internal links to your own content. This helps Google rank your content quicker and rank higher. So when you post “Best Slow Cookers 2018,” go back to older content and create a link. Add a new paragraph somewhere when you do this to get Google’s attention.

4) Make sure your content is visually pleasant and easy to read. Use bullets, pictures and short paragraphs. Make sure you sentences are concise as well.

5) Write naturally and don’t keyword stuff. You don’t want to use the term “best slow cookers” over and over and over again.

The last section is next and I’ll show you resources that have helped me out over the past few years.

Additional Resources

There’s a few articles and training that have shaped the way I look at affiliate marketing. Here’s the best ones:

1) Wealthy Affiliate: This is where I learned and is by far the most comprehensive training on the internet.

2) http://incomeaddon.com/ This website opened my eyes to the power of best of lists and has a free training course you’ll want to take. It’s much like this training but more in depth. The guy who runs this website makes around $20,000 a month as an Amazon Affiliate.(I think this website is offline now)

3) http://www.viperchill.com/goog… This post opened my eyes to the “year” strategy. This guy makes millions online every year and noticed that keywords with the year in them were the most profitable and got the most traffic.

4) https://gaps.com/google-affili… This is from the same guy as Viperchill and is just another one of his website. It goes more in depth into the year strategy and breaks down a website that only has 8 best of posts and brings in tens of thousands a month.

5) https://backlinko.com/on-page-… I posted this link in the last section but it’s worth posting again. This post shows you all the little tricks to rank better.

6) Think and Grow Rich: This is the single greatest business book and one all people looking to make money needs to read.

If you go through these 6 resources you’ll basically know as much as me.

I hope this training helps you and I hope you seriously consider what I’ve said. If you’ve made it this far I’m guessing you really want to make this whole online marketing thing work.

It’s actually really simple to make money online. Once you understand this and all the principles I laid out in this training you’ll see what I mean. As billionaire Mark Cuban once said ” The internet is the single easiest and best way to make money.’ He should know – he made BILLIONS online.

WEALTHY AFFILIATE REVIEW VS LOSSES OF JOBS IN THE USA AMID COVID-19


This post is about Wealthy Affiliate Review vs Losses of Jobs in the USA amid Covid-19. With the Coronavirus Epidemic ravaging the whole world, the United States of America has not been spared in terms of job losses and pay cuts. While the Federal Government has tried to mitigate the unfortunate circumstances brought about by the Covid 19 by releasing $2 trillion https://nationalpost.com/news/world/u-s-tees-up-2-trillion-package-to-stimulate-economy-amid-covid-19-pandemic, economic suffering has continued devastating individual homes and companies.

Therefore, the announcement by some companies to lay off workers or send them on unpaid leave is not surprising at all. Gravity Payments employees have sacrificed their salaries to save their company from sinking into the deep waters amid the Coronavirus pandemic. Yahoo Money News reported on July 4th 2020, “Five years after Gravity Payments CEO Dan Price slashed his million-dollar salary to pay his staff more, his employees are doing the same — voluntarily — to save each other’s jobs at the Seattle-based credit card processing company that’s been hit hard by the economic shocks from the pandemic.

 

The Gravity Payments employees have done such a brave act because the company was losing about $50,000 per day, or $1.5 million a month. Therefore, workers have seen it fit to voluntarily sacrifice any amount of money ranging from 5% to 100%. Their employer stated that the workers had taken a voluntary pay cut based on their individual financial situation. “Some could afford just a 5% reduction, while others took 30% to 50% less. Additionally, 10 employees asked to go without pay through the crisis.”

 

One may ask why this information can relate to Wealthy Affiliate. This is because some Wealthy Affiliate members are enjoying success every minute, hour or day that passes on in spite of the lock down being experienced in many major towns. Actually, with many people being found at home, many have taken to internet searching and Wealthy Affiliate members are busy solving their problems in terms of advice being given on directing online buyers where to go and find the goods they want online.

LOSS OF EMPLOYMENT

 

 

Here is Mikebeatty’s Post during the Covid-19 pandemic period which was released inside the Wealthy Affiliate program. His success, just like others enjoying success within the community is quite contagious:

Wow this month has been a weird one!

With the whole world on lock down with COVID, you may think that more and more people would be interested in starting an online business or learning how to make money from home.

But here’s what happened to my traffic from Google:

This is the first time my traffic has taken a notable dip since it’s started growing. It’s safe to say this is how I felt at the start of March…

My wife and I were supposed to visit Singapore and our parents had booked a week each to visit us in sunny Qatar so I had thought this month was going to really lack on how much work I could do.

In the end I managed to do much more due to the lock down and my traffic still tanked! Boo!

But don’t worry there is a happy ending as you’ll see later. But for now…

Here’s the stats

SEO traffic- 6979 (up from 6164)

New posts- 22 (18 reviews)

Total posts- 236 (I also cleared out some dead wood this month)

Words written- 63,357 (including 4 emails to my list)

Refs- 39 (down from 45 last month)

Upgrade- 7 (same as last month)

Recurring- 15 (up from 10)

* Annual upgrades- 4

See my Feb Updates here.

Takeaways

NOW HIRING AT WEALTHY AFFILIATE

So it’s certainly been a weird month but here are my takeaways that hopefully can help you too…

  • My traffic halved overnight… but I still had more organic traffic from the previous month!
  • Being consistent is far more important than worrying when traffic declines… traffic will vary (just be aware of this)
  • I checked my main keywords on Google and they were all in a similar position. Therefore, I knew it wasn’t Google penalizing my website, but just a lack of searches compared to normal (pretty understandable as the whole world is pretty chaotic right now!)
  • I’m glad I focus on what I can control more nowadays (how many posts and words written rather than things like position ranked in Google or how much money I make)… funny enough both my rankings and income have increased since I changed my focus!
  • I left my sales page/ opt in’s the same which has made it easier to track
  • Using Thrive Leads and Optimize has helped me split test some pages and opt ins and I plan to update/ adapt some of these again this month

Here’s what’s happening now

Despite this mini set back at the start of the month here is what has started to happen now…

 

Plus, a very exciting stage of the journey has happened within the last week…

I’ve hired a full-time writer! He’s on his second day of training out of 5 and I’m already super impressed with him.

I used Jerry’s amazing training to do this here…

Hire a Writer like a PRO

That training is honestly epic! Even if you have no intention of hiring anyone right now I would still recommend going through this and checking out his training (especially if you are promoting WA, as you are guaranteed to learn something from the young affiliate marketing master)
YOU CAN FREELY ADVERTISE BY CLICKING HERE.
Anyway I hope that was helpful.

I’m planning on getting at least 20 reviews done in April and I’m excited to see where this traffic heads (I’m predicting my first 5 figure traffic months from Google and double digits from premium members).

You Need To Be Proactive In The Current Covid-19 Reality

Last Updates: April 07, 2020,

Affiliate 0

I have been reflecting a lot lately on how life was like on New Years Day 2020, three years ago, and even 6+ years ago when I joined Wealthy Affiliate. I bet many of you too have been reflecting on what life was like not so long ago. Though my journey has made many unexpected turns, one thing has remained the same.

MY GOAL & HOW I HANDLED CHANGES

My unexpected turns started many years ago, 2009 to be exact. I had spent 21 straight uninterrupted years in the video game design industry working my way up from a tester to a designer and a producer. My goal at that time was to earn as much as I could, buy a house and semi-retire doing some sort of work at home job.

Then when 2009 came along, the economy had tanked, tons of people were being laid off and the world was fighting to get out of the recession, I was forced to make changes. Fortunately in 2001 I was proactive in my mindset and I started an eBay business. It was me planting the seeds of that work at home job I wanted to retire with.

At the time of being laid off in 2009 I wasn’t making that much, maybe $500.00 a month in profits, certainly not enough to pay all of my monthly expenses. It was at this time that I scaled it up, but cautiously because my finances were slim. I started looking at doing both drop shipping and shipping smaller items myself.

Wealthy Affiliate always hires

I WANT MY… I WANT MY MTV

In two years time around May 2011 two things happen. I was now making about $1,100.00 per month and I was hired by a small video game company doing a dating game app for Facebook called Flirt by MTV Games. Even though I landed this job, I didn’t slow down on the eBay business. That was my future.

Early in 2012 the contract with MTV Games in NYC ended and I thought I was going to be doing just the eBay again. Then I got a call from my former employer during those 21 years in the video game industry. He was now the VP of Design for the West Coast division of MTV Games and he signed me to a one-year contract working on an iPhone app.

I knew when I started that it was only for one year and by end of June 2013 it would be over. Seeing how I did not have to move from New Jersey to San Francisco and could work from home, I continued to scale up my eBay business. With all the changes that had happened so far, my proactive mindset of having a work from home business remained constant.

A month and a half after that contract with MTV ended I wanted to take my eBay business to another level. I wanted to build an e commerce website and do drop shipping from it as well as direct people to my eBay auctions. This is when I joined Wealthy Affiliate to learn how to build my own website. Then another unexpected turn happen.

I LEARNED AFFILIATE MARKETING

Though my mind was made up to build an e commerce website, I started falling in love with the concept of making money in affiliate marketing. It certainly seemed similar to drop shipping in that I didn’t have to buy, stock and ship any items, but it was different in a big way. NO direct contact with the customer to complete the sale.

All the receiving payments, shipping of products, customer service and potential returns was handled by the retailer I was affiliated with. COOL BEANS! After my first Amazon commission another unexpected turn happen. I put that e commerce business on the back burner. In fact, it is still thereafter 6+ years here at WA.

The training and website building/hosting resources here at WA made me take another turn, though this was a planned one. In early 2016 I got rid of my eBay business and focused on doing affiliate marketing and freelance SEO content writing, utilizing the skills I learned here from the training. This was going to be my new work at home business.

I was now making money solely from home doing affiliate marketing with a couple of different companies in addition to WA and freelancing my skills. My proactive mindset remained constant. Create a work at home business you can retire with. Little did I know that another unexpected turn was coming, one I never imagined would happen.

NOT MY COMFORT ZONE

In August 2016 after a recommendation by someone I was freelancing for I got into the healthcare industry as a medical transport driver. I cannot tell you what was behind that unexpected change of events. It certainly was not a type of job I was looking for, but something was telling me this was the right thing to do.

The last time I had felt this strong about something I had no knowledge in was when I decided to give Wealthy Affiliate a try. For this new endeavor I needed to get some medical training and basic certification. The majority of the people I transport are non-emergency patients going to and from hospitals and doctor offices.

I have met some really nice people doing this and some really off-the-wall nut jobs and recovering heroin addicts. My favorite are the military veterans I transport to/from the major VA Medical Center here in New Jersey. I have mad respect for those men and women. I love hearing their war stories and about the places they have been across the globe.

Come end of January 2020, I would begin to realize what it was like to have the courage that these brave men and women had running towards and into a combat zone, knowing you could be killed. I am not saying what I was doing could kill me, but anything is possible nowadays, especially now in our current state of crisis.

CORONA WHAT?

I started noticing that many of the people I was transporting were coughing a lot more than usual, some looked bad. At this point I knew that it was already a bad flu season. As of today April 6th, 2020, in the U.S. there have been 45,000,000 confirmed cases of the flu, at least 300,000 hospitalizations, and 46,000 deaths, dwarfing the Covid-19 totals.

However, even though the seasonal flu which we have a vaccine for is infecting, hospitalizing and killing far more people than the Coronavirus, we are living in a lock down quarantined way of life. Though corona viruses are quite common, this one is a “Novel” Coronavirus, meaning it is new and it is also very quick to spread and kill.

 

People are scared. There is no vaccine, no approved drug treatment. People have to quarantine and social distance from each other because those showing no symptoms could still be carriers and infect others, which is why we are to wear a mask or face covering when out in public. Our once normal world has turned upside down.

I have always said that change is inevitable. If you do not adapt to the change or think that it will totally go back to the way it was, you may very well be left behind in the new normal. To help mitigate all of these changes beyond your control, having a proactive mindset will help you adapt to the characteristics of the time.

Vacancies available at Wealthy Affiliate

WHAT IS A PROACTIVE MINDSET?

Personally I see this as a simple and effective way to smooth the bumps in the road. A proactive mindset is to plan for the future now and not wait for the change to happen. I knew back in 2001 I needed a way to make money from home when my regular job would be over, so I was proactive and stared an eBay business.

From what I have learned here with the Wealthy Affiliate training, I was proactive and became an affiliate of more than one company and freelanced my skills. All of this will help add to my ultimate goal of having my own work at home business for when I finally decide to retire. Some of this can run itself while I do my new job.

Economists have always said that the economy will crash again and it will be huge. Is this the time it starts? I have no idea but I am not going to wait to react when it does. By that time it will be too late. By being proactive now and embracing this new way of working and earning an income from home, there is no better place to be than Wealthy Affiliate.

Even in my current job as a medical transport driver I was proactive in March and went out on my own and purchased a dozen N95 respirator masks. I knew there was a worldwide shortage and whatever masks did show up, the doctors and nurses would get them first. We drivers are the first ones to come in contact with the infected.

A PERSONAL RECOMMENDATION

Everything that we experience and do in life we can help shape the outcome by being proactive and not wait for the change to happen. If you want to be able to work from home with your own online business, it is best to start when you still have a job. This will make the successful outcome easier and more beneficial.

 

My personal recommendation to you is to be proactive to protect yourself from infection. Do the basics. Wash your hands, social distance, and wear a mask when going out in public. You are now to wear a mask or anything to cover your nose and mouth so that YOU do not spread your germs just in case you are asymptomatic.

Though you should not go out and get a lot of N95 respirator or the thinner and more available surgical mask see above, those of us in healthcare need them more, I do recommend you get ONE N95 mask should you need it in an emergency if someone close to you becomes infected with Covid-19. You can get them on eBay but they are expensive, like $40.00 each.

The surgical mask above will not block the inhalation of virus particles if you are close to the source. The N95 like the one below will block 95% of all virus particles. If you should go on eBay or Amazon to buy one of these masks you will see different styles, colors and shapes. That is fine as long as it is a 95 grade, but you need to know something else.

 

KNOW THE MODEL NUMBERS

One of the reasons there is such a shortage of N95 masks is that the burn rate has increased 10 fold. Under normal circumstances when a nurse and doctor sees an infected patient, they change all of their PPE (Personal Protection Equipment) such as gloves, gowns, masks, … before seeing the next patient. Now there is 10 times more patients to treat.

Then there is the hoarding mentality people have. Look at what has happened to toilet paper, cleaning products, bottled water and other essentials. I think many of these hoarders are doing this to resell on eBay and Amazon for higher prices. This shortage has forced all of us in healthcare to stretch the usage life of our PPE.

The 3M company makes the majority of all N95 masks in the world. They make masks in the U.S. and in China, as do a few other smaller companies. The below image is from the 3M guide to masks. So if you see a mask with a KN95 (or any of those others) they are of the same quality of a regular N95 respirator mask.

Again, if you are going to be proactive and buy an N95 mask, get ONLY ONE! You can get a KN95 (Made in China) mask and it will be the same quality and effectiveness as the standard American N95 respirator mask and the price will be just a little cheaper. Make sure the model number is imprinted on the mask itself and on the package.

 

Whether you want to achieve the effective protection of your health or the success of being able to earn an income from your home, the time is NOW to have a proactive mindset. Prepare for the future now. Take the WA training seriously, stay focused on your goals and stay safe from this virus. If you have any comments, leave them below.

Here is a review of a recently joined member of Wealthy Affiliate by the name of Zoliswadz. He writes as follows:

Looking Back a Month from Now

Last Updates: April 08, 2020,

As l look back in my past few weeks with WA I have seen many benefits and I have noticed even change in my behavior, because I am now more focused and more inclined into success than I was before I joined this community

I can admit though I did feel lost like in a jungle at times because of a new venture that I am in, but believe you me everyone here is always ready to assist and pull help you out.

I am not a very communicative individual by nature but thanks to WA and the training Kyle and Carson put in place, the videos and the helping community as a whole, I can now say I am out of my shell:) so to speak. I look forward to more training as I devote more time within my learning. Yes it has been a slow progress but I will get there.

Just a word of encouragement to my peers and to the new ones that just joined this company always look out for good in others but don’t let anyone tell you otherwise about the journey that you have taken with WA. This company will take you to where you need to be both in your personal development and your financial freedom. Dedicate your time with learning and be disciplined of course. Always learn to communicate effectively

May all members who share the same goals as I do have a beautiful and productive day today and for all days going forward

To your success:-$:-$

much Love

Wealthy Affiliate Review vs Craju.com Point by Point Analysis








  • Wealthy Affiliate vs Craju.com Point by Point Analysis
    Online Work is Available. Just make a decision.

`This is the Wealthy Affiliate Review 2020 vs Craju.com Point by Point Analysis. My reaction is going to be point by point as Craju unfolds his problem with Wealthy Affiliate.

Craju: The Problem with Wealthy Affiliate

328 Comments / Affiliate Marketing / By Craig

2018 TL;DR Update: DO NOT promote Wealthy Affiliate. Sign up for a free trial, engage with the community and learn what you can before your access expires, but DO NOT GO PREMIUM. They are selling a fantasy built on a dying business model which serves only to benefit (no surprise here…) the founders of Wealthy Affiliate. You can glean some value from the trial, but do not invest in their training and by all means do not even consider building out any sites using their proprietary services. If you want to know why, then read on…

My reaction: Anyone who signs up for a free trial, but fails to upgrade to premium within the first seven days and beyond misses out on a great number of opportunities enjoyed at Wealthy Affiliate. Before beginning the course, each new member is reminded by the owners, “this is a business like any other; it’s going to take time and a lot of hard work.” Many community members are really making tons of money in this manner and being invited by Kyle and Carson to the Las Vegas Conference to meet other super affiliates. Most of them are premium members, hence the importance of upgrading. Therefore, promoting Wealthy Affiliate is one of the many ways you can grow your income online and enjoy passive income.

Craju: The problem with WA is… they don’t put their members through any sort of review process before they let them set off into the world of internet marketing. Sure, they do provide the resources and coaching needed to make it in IM, but they also do a good job of making it sound so easy. I feel like a lot of folks sign up thinking it’s going to be a convenient way to generate income once they know how to post a blog, install a few plugins in WordPress, and get their affiliate links added.

My reaction: By the way, the cofounders of Wealthy Affiliate are Kyle and Carson. Here is Kyle’s reaction to the above statement, “If you run into any challenges, please do not hesitate to drop a question to the community. That’s what we’re here for.”

During my stay at Wealthy Affiliate, I have run into difficulties just like any other trainee and asked questions either in the classroom, live chat or Private Message. All the questions have been answered quickly in an efficient manner by either the community or Kyle himself. By the way, Carson runs the Site Support staff that is second to none as regards skills and efficiency.

A helper is needed sometimes even at Craju.com
A helper is needed sometimes

Craju: Obviously, holding people back until they’ve ‘graduated’ from the program wouldn’t work anyway, but I can tell you honestly that…90% of the people in the WA Community will make next to no money in affiliate marketing and will likely give up.

I hate to sound like a Downer Donna, but I’m calling it like I see it. I’ve perused many of the sites linked in comments and in user-profiles and most of them are pretty awful. Now I know that we’ve all got to start somewhere, but the glaring issue here is that most of these people are wondering why their sites aren’t earning them mad cheddar.

To me, it’s painfully obvious, but to them…they’re confused. WA said that they’d have their money-making site up within seconds, so what the heck..?!

My reaction: Wealthy Affiliate is just like any brick and wall university where people are taught skills and it is up to them to utilize those skills in either starting a business for themselves or getting employed to earn a living. After being taught skills at Wealthy Affiliate, some people start earning money even before they finish their training, There are quite a number of people who start earning money online even as short as two to six months. Others take longer even up to a year or beyond because we do not learn at the same pace. Other people apply all their strength and mind and utilize their skills to earn money online quickly.

Point by Point Analysis
Brick and Wall Business takes long to gain profits

However, it took me exactly one year for me to earn money online utilizing the vast knowledge found at Wealthy Affiliate. Here is the post I wrote inside the Wealthy Affiliate community:

Exactly One Year and I Earn My First Online Money

Last Update: September 22, 2019

Affiliate 0

At last, it has been my turn to handle online money. I joined Wealthy Affiliate on 19th September 2018 and went ahead to become a premium member a week later. On 19th September 2019, I received what I am calling a first-year anniversary present equivalent to $200. It was hardly a surprise to me because I knew that Wealthy Affiliate is a genuine site. As the lovely community members reported earning money online for as few as four months, such success has not eluded me. Finally, my turn has come.

This success has been brought about by the kind of excellent training that we receive from Kyle, Carson, Jay and the helpful Site Support Personnel. Seeing some of my posts ranking highly on page one number one of our search engines of Google, Bing and Yahoo I was given a project to assist some people to have their posts rank highly in the search engine hence the reward.

Failure is not an option at WA as this will make every community member sad. Just follow the step by step training and success will come your way, too. Invite people to make comments on your websites and heed their advice. Keep on working hard, but do not give up, please.

I wish to thank the whole lovely community for not giving up on me. You have been very helpful, indeed, in your own unique way and I love you all. Keep up the spirit of success ticking at WA.

There are other premium members who have had many good experiences with Wealthy Affiliate and here is a video from an independent Affiliate Marketer to make you understand fully what affiliate marketing is:

My reaction: Again, here is what Debs wrote inside the Wealthy Affiliate community:

Jerry earned 40K in 4 hours how did he do that. He met Wealthy Affiliate that’s why. He excelled from it. He isn’t silly is he? Nor is Dom nor is Grace nor is Dylan. So are countless others here. All completely different marketers all worth a fortune today. I won’t link you to them to go and explore this whole platform and be ready to be amazed. It’s up to you.

<a

Just remember this!.. Wealthy Affiliate can work it’s up to you. Not one person here will do it for you. We can help and guide you, but we cannot make money for you that is down to you and you alone. If you want it that bad then you will find it if you don’t well what can I say TTFN.

If you wonder how I did that. All you have to do is open your eyes and build out your own online businesses like I have.

Will I kill the affiliate side of it damn it yes I will, when I give it the time it needs. Right now I am busy working on other projects.

Do I get referrals heck yes of course I do. Is it a work in progress heck yes it is. Will I master it yes I will… period!

Am I gonna give up. Not ever not for anyone not for nobody. I am building a dream lifestyle what are lot doing. Get to work and master the training because it blummin works SIMPLE!

Respect to you all !

My reaction: Here is another happy Wealthy Affiliate member sharing his joy of handling online money:

My First $30,000 Month – Well Almost $29,330.68 To Be Exact

It’s been almost 2 years now since I joined WA. It’s the place that started my entire journey into online entrepreneurship.

It’s hard to believe I used to drive a forklift in a dusty old warehouse for 50+ hrs a week of only $17hr.

I now make almost as much in a single month than I did working an entire year, it still seems unreal.

I know a lot of people who start WA have taken the training and are still struggling to make an income online. You hear it day in and day out just keep working and pushing forward, create more content, content is king.

Carefully select what you want in life

Then you will here excuses like I think I picked a bad niche, can’t find the right products to promote, or some are here hoping to post a few articles and become rich overnight.

I can tell you it does not happen that way.

It takes a shit load of hard work to start making money online and even to this day I still work 8 to 10 hrs a day on my business.

There is no such thing as a 4-hour workweek guys.

Sure I can take a few weeks off here and there and not see any major changes to my income but if I were to take a whole year off I can guarantee my income would probably drop by over half.

There is so much valuable training online outside of WA. Wealthy Affiliate is awesome without a doubt but don’t stop there, take the little nuggets of gold here and there and apply it, then go out and look for other ways to expand your knowledge.

A lot of you will just complete the WA training and think that’s the end all be all of the training. There is so so so so so so much more to just posing on blogs and keyword research.

Sure some of my $30k came from my blog but only about $3k. The rest came from my YT content/Ads, FB Ads, Adwords and more than anything else it’s my email funnel sequences

Emails are still by far my #1 income source and I’m not sure why WA doesn’t do more training on it.

So I am going to break it down how I make money online.

Successful Businesses are not Instant Coffee
Successful Brick and Wall Businesses make profits after a long time

The first thing you will need is a good landing page builder (not a blog) a quick drag and drop landing page builder that is connected to your email autoresponder. You will use this to create simple opt-in pages giving something away of value for free. Like a list, short e-book, short video course, etc.

Then once they opt-in with their emails you will send out a sequence of emails about 10 to 15 that will be sent out to those on that email sequence. When they first come into this list you will tag them in your autoresponder so you know where they came from so you can track them.

The first email they receive is an email introducing yourself and sending them a link to download the free pdf from Dropbox or where ever you have it stored online. (Do not put any affiliate links in this email)

Then you will send them 2 or 3 more emails teaching them something of value. For example, if you are in the weight loss niche send them emails on how to get started losing weight with these few simple tricks. (Do not put any affiliate links in this email)

You are trying to build trust with your email list not spam them with affiliate offers they will just unsubscribe.

People buy things from people they trust.

Then around email 4 or 5 send them value with a link or two to the affiliate product you are promoting, don’t just say here go buy this product click link. (This crap doesn’t work).

You may be asking why should I build an email list at all?

It’s simple to think about the last time you went online, read through a blog about a product and purchased it right then and there. You actually went found your wallet or purse got out your credit card, filled out the order form?

The normal person looking to buy or join a program will not do that. They will go online search for reviews, watch multiple YouTube videos, and read multiple blogs about the product before they make their final purchase.

They may land on your site first read your review, click back and go to the next website read that review or info, click back again and do it over and over again until they have justified spending money to purchase the product or join a website. Most will research over the course of a few days.

JAAXY REVIEW 2019 – THE BEST KEYWORD SEARCH TOOL
Wealthy Affiliate vs Craju.com

Let’s say someone goes online and starts search for ways to make money online. First, they may go to google and type that in, landing on multiple pages and find the product they want. Then they go to YouTube to look for reviews of that product from real people talking on camera. People tend to trust you more when they can see your face.

So let say you create a YouTube video about ways to make money online (please start making YouTube videos even if you don’t like being on camera it’s the second largest search engine in the world and 10x easier to rank) and place a link below the video in the description to a landing page that you mention in your video giving them a pdf with the 10 easiest ways to start making money online today when they put in their email.

Now you can start building trust with that person through email giving them great advice about how to get started. Telling them to contact you if you have questions etc. That person will check out your pdf but also continue to search for ways to make money online.

But…

 

 

You

will be sending them valuable information over the next few days and when they finally do see in your email something along the lines of

“Hey Michael, I know you have been searching for a while now on a way to start making a little extra income online. Hopefully, the list of 10 great ways to start making money online sparked a few ideas for you. I personally have been using XYZ for the past few years and have had great success with it. Would you like to hear my story about how I got started?”

See what I did there is I didn’t post any links, I started a two-way conversation to get the email subscriber engaged. Then when they do reply please don’t just say here go join this here is the link. Talk to them, give them advice.

That’s pretty much the birds-eye view.

Of course, there is a lot of other stuff going on in the background and I mostly use FB and YT ads to get traffic to that same opt-in page but that gives you an idea of how I am currently making money.

Craju: Wealthy Affiliate’s candy-coated sales pitch

Now I imagine there are some highly motivated and disciplined individuals who could utilize the membership training and community resource to build a profitable business;

My reaction: Not some but many serious members have built a profitable business and are enjoying a passive income. The examples above are the tip of an iceberg.

Craju: However… the main sales page is a bit misleading in that I feel it grossly oversimplifies the process of establishing a profitable site, and it nowhere near emphasizes just how much work will be involved. Not to mention, the several months you will have to devote to this before you start seeing any sort of income.

My reaction: You are trying to create real business and as such, it is not “instant coffee.” You have to work hard if you have to see any profits.

Craju: Let me dissect the Wealthy Affiliate sales pitch…

If you’re not yet a Wealthy Affiliate member choose an Interest.

They tell you that the first step in the process is to choose a niche. In my opinion, this should be pretty easy for you determine before you even decide to get started. If not, then internet marketing may not be for you. The reason I say this is due to the amount of effort required to build a profitable business from scratch. If you can’t think of one single thing that excites or interests you, then you are going to have an uphill struggle if you plan to make a go of it in affiliate marketing.

Wealthy Affiliate will help you select a good niche, and some of that process is covered within the free membership. However . . . they also quickly position the option of you marketing Wealthy Affiliate itself …if you are at a loss, in terms of deciding upon a vertical.

This is a BAD idea.

My reaction: This is true, but promoting Wealthy Affiliate gives you a chance to earn extra income of almost 50% per referral.

Online Work is Available. Just make a decision.

 

Craju: NO ONE that is new to internet marketing should pursue a niche solely based on the prospect of money-making. To be successful, you must pursue a niche that you are passionate about.

Think about it…who in their right mind is going to be sold a service that you have yet to make a dime from yourself. If you’re able to make some money as a Wealthy Affiliate member, then you might think about trying the Wealthy Affiliate Bootcamp route.

You may be able to convert a few Facebook friends or your mom, but you will not succeed as a Wealthy Affiliate ‘affiliate’ if you choose their WA Bootcamp as your niche. They’ll lead you to believe that you will, and while you could . . . it’s what I consider to be a very advanced niche that only experienced or uber-motivated IM’ers should pursue.

Alright, so the ‘choose an interest’ step is pretty self-explanatory, provided you arrive at WA with at least one interest. ????

My reaction: You can arrive at Wealthy Affiliate with two or more niches. That is why free starters are allowed to build two sites which may represent two niches. For others, niches may be varied up to the present twenty-five sites. It is up to one’s choice.

Start Learning at Wealthy Affiliate freely

Craju: Just don’t do the Bootcamp . . . I’m serious. I’ve seen a boatload of abandoned WA affiliate sites where the site owner followed the same cookie-cutter methods outlined in the training, worked hard at it for 30-60 days, never to return.

My reaction: Quite a number of Wealthy Affiliate members who abandoned the platform for some time “always” come back after confessing that there is no better platform out there. They quickly pick up from where they had left and join the bandwagon of the affiliate marketers who are succeeding at WA. Kyle and Carson have big hearts and they always welcome back warmly.

Craju: Follow your passion, not the money. Don’t be a soulless Wealthy Affiliate pie-in-the-sky zombie slave who tries to start a business by promoting something you know very little about and have yet to see success with yourself. That is deceptive and that is lazy. Instead, seek to provide value. Be informative. Be helpful.

Wealthy Affiliate vs Craju.com
Wealthy Affiliate vs Craju.com

My reaction: Kyle encourages people to be truthful as they try to help out people by intensive research so that the information they come up with is truthful and valuable. That is one way of gaining trust.

Ok…on to the next step in their ‘how to get started’ sales proposition…

Craju: Build a Website

Oh my god…this step is so misleading. I especially love this bit…

In a matter of seconds, you will have your own website up and you can choose a design that appeals to you.

HaHa! If I were new to online business, website administration and WordPress, I would assume they meant you can have your site up and ready within seconds. That’s what it says, right?!

Bullshit.

Wealthy Affiliate has an install wizard which can technically have your site themed and online within seconds, but that is just the beginning.

Some Wealthy Affiliate members enjoy traveling to foreign countries

It is going to take you weeks and weeks of online training, loads of content creation and endless tinkering before you’ll have a legitimate web presence. You may think your website is great and you’ll be proud of the fact that you did it yourself, but I’m telling you…to build a competitive and professional web presence requires a great deal of experience and/or resources.

There is no misinformation outlined in this step, but so much about the process of building an internet marketing site is left out. It’s not dishonest, but it is deceiving. Even if you progress through their free course, you’ll still only possess the basics of the basics. To have any hope of knowing what to do with your site you’ll absolutely have to go premium and be prepared to spend tons of hours learning and asking questions.

My reaction: This is part of the hard work Kyle talks about. He is truthful when he says results will not come overnight, but the content you create on your site shall eventually attract organic traffic. If you want quick traffic you are taught how to advertise on Bing and Google.

Websites for Wealthy Affiliate members attract many visitors

Craju: Attract Visitors

They tell you that you need visitors to your site in order to profit from your new business. Shyeah..! Of course, you need visitors to make any money.

Good news is, Wealthy Affiliate goes on to say that within the first few lessons you’re going to learn the techniques that will allow you to get an abundance, no wait…ABUNDANCE of relevant customers to your site by way of organic search. Most folks reading this have no idea just how difficult this is. If you know how to do it, then it’s mainly just hard work, but for those of you that don’t understand the process…you’re in for a long education full of trial and error.

If rankings were easy to obtain, everyone would be doing this, am I right..?! No way anyone new to IM is going to learn even a smidgen of what they need to know through those first few lessons. I’ve gone through the lessons. I know.

My reaction: Yes, it requires hard work and consistent blogging to attract traffic to your site. Kyle prepares you for this in his tutorials.

All the members of Wealthy Affiliate are on their way to making more and more money.

Craju: Earn Revenue

Once your site is built and gaining relevant traffic, making money from it is entirely possible. It’s all of the stuff leading up to the monetization part that is difficult.

My reaction: This kind of business is not “instant coffee” but takes hard work for results or money to be seen.

Craju: The problem with 90% of those who join Wealthy Affiliate is that they fast-forward right to here. Some of that could be delusions of grandeur, part of it may be impatience or desperation, but I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that Wealthy Affiliate lures people in by having them believe that the process is so easy.

It’s not. It’s really f**king hard!

But it seems like as soon as people get their WordPress site up and running, they want to add their about page, privacy policy, a few posts, and then smear it with ads . . . at which point I imagine them sitting and staring at their computer waiting for the money to start pouring out of it like an ATM.

This is not how IM works.

My reaction: This is very true, Craju.

Associate yourself with successful people

Craju: You’re only seconds away from starting a business…

This is true. Within seconds you could have access to the training and website launcher that will allow you to start a business, but you are months and months (and more likely…years) away from making any money.

My reaction: No, Craju. As I stated above, some people just take a couple of months before seeing their online earnings. It depends on how they have invested into their business and how consistent they have been in creating content on their websites. Others even hire freelancers to create more content on their sites. Let them reap their benefits out of their hard work and massive investments done on their sites.

Craju: Is Wealthy Affiliate a legit service..?

This is a tough one to answer. On one hand, yes, they do provide some adequate training in the way of affiliate marketing and WordPress site management, but it’s a little self-serving. They really tout their platform as a magic bullet solution for IM, but it’s not. They’re also quick to suggest WA as a good affiliate marketing niche, but that is a definite NO.

My reaction: Wealthy Affiliate is definitely a legit site that has helped thousands and thousands earn money online. I am a living witness testifying to this fact. After losing a thousand or so dollars to shameless scammers online, I stumbled upon Wealthy Affiliate and they have taught me even more than what brick and wall universities taught me. Whoever wants to join Wealthy Affiliate can do so HERE. I shall be there to assist at whatever stage of training and ensure that he/she makes money online to his/her satisfaction. Let me assure you that once you start the training and you are dedicated and hard-working at the same time, you shall make money beyond your dream. Take my word for it.

Craju: In my opinion, there’s no harm in signing up and peeking behind the curtain for a few weeks. Go through a few of their tutorials, learn what you can, and if affiliate marketing is still of interest to you after a few weeks, then get after it. However, DO NOT give WA any money and by all means, DO NOT host any websites with them.

My reaction: Please, go ahead and sign up with Wealthy Affiliate HERE and quickly upgrade if you are serious with your investment. The more investments you make, the quicker will be your returns. Do not miss this opportunity of making “tons of money” with little investments. Some members are even thinking of turning into millionaires in a couple of years’ time. If they have succeeded in making so much money with little investments, you, too, can succeed. When I joined Wealthy Affiliate, I was asked how much would make me happy earning money online. My answer was $10,000 monthly. When I was asked how much would make me ecstatic and I replied that $25,000 monthly would make me ecstatic. I know sooner or later, I shall achieve my first goal and then start working harder to achieve the second one. I am positive about it when I look at the results coming out of my sweat.

Craju: Do I recommend Wealthy Affiliate?

If you go into it with realistic expectations and are aware of the sacrifices and suffering involved with being successful as an affiliate marketer, then WA can provide you with an easy to follow – albeit very basic – road map.

The lessons can be useful to those just starting out, but I think that their service attracts a lot of misled buyers because of how easy they make it all seem. Sure, you could make some money in affiliate marketing if you follow their training and tutorials and put in an ungodly amount of work. I’m sure of this, but . . . most people who arrive at Wealthy Affiliate will be lucky if they make enough money to pay for their membership.

My reaction: I would recommend Wealthy Affiliate to anybody willing to build a BUSINESS ONLINE HERE. Handwork is always profitable. You never know. This chance may lead you to be a super affiliate. If you are working, you may end up quitting your job. Here is a blog from Nathaniell, one of the many super affiliates at WA who compiled a list of 46 success stories at WA. There are many other successful affiliates missing on the following list:

There are a ton of places out there that claim to help you make money online, and Wealthy Affiliate is one of the most popular and most recommended training courses to learn affiliate marketing. But are people actually making money with the program or are those affiliates just promoting them to make a commission? What’s with all the hype?

I can tell you as a decade-long member of the community that I have made a significant amount of money online thanks to their affiliate training, and I’m not the only one. I’ve collected 46 different examples of Wealthy Affiliate results that should convince you to join right now.

while working from home many Wealthy Affiliate members have been successful

These examples are just ones that I thought were interesting and are also from a variety of different people in a wide variety of niches. I don’t know everyone’s niche, and not everyone shares their website, but if you click the links on this page some people do mention what niches they are in.

There are many examples where I saw someone post about their first $100 day or even a $1000 day. Making $10,000 month is a big milestone too.

Don’t forget that making your first organic sale, even if it’s just $5, it a big accomplishment too. For many folks, that happens in the first months of starting their affiliate website, and then the clouds part to reveal a maniacal work ethic and clear vision of a future of working online.

So can you get results with Wealthy Affiliate? Absolutely. There’s nothing special about the people in this list(sorry guys!), and there’s certainly nothing special about myself. We all enrolled in the training, did the lessons, and worked hard on our websites every day. You can create your own account, try the first 10 lessons for free, and see what you think.

1. Officially a Six Figure Business – 2018 Year End Report

@RD40 joined WA in 2016, and has been rockin’ his affiliate site since then. As of 2018, he was officially a “six figure earner”, which is a huge milestone for many people wanting to work online. His niche was in the health and fitness industry, which you may know is a very evergreen niche (that means it’ll never go out of style).

From the 25th to the 31st of December he earned an amazing $17,175 and totaled a whopping $110k+ for the year. Wow! The funny part was that he remembered setting his goal as earning just $1,000 per month, so it was pretty exciting for him to blow way past that goal.

2. December 2018 – $1,738 Dollars & Growing!

@Craigrut has been at WA since mid-2017. He hit his first $1,000 month in October 2018 by relying on Amazon’s affiliate program. While his growth in November wasn’t as high as he had hoped, his December profits were an impressive $1,738.

What’s more, Craig doesn’t rely on any paid advertising. Instead, he focuses on keyword research and driving traffic from Google. He hopes to hit the 5-figure income mark in 2019. This goal is certainly possible if his site continues to grow at its current rate.

3. My 2018 Travel Niche Results and the Year Ahead, Bring on 2019

The travel niche has been a source of success for @Sgregcrx. While he saw no income in the first year of his site, he started to see significant growth in 2018, reaching consistent revenue of around $1,000 per month. That made for a total income of roughly $8,000 by the end of 2018. Even more exciting – he has been making this profit with around 200 to 250 hits each day.

 

Returning Member of Wealthy Affiliate agrees that it is the best affiliate site.

@Sgregcrx is hoping for considerable growth in 2019, perhaps two to three times his current level, if not more. His success is especially relevant, as he is operating in the travel niche. This niche has considerable growth potential due to consistent demand. His experience also shows that there are many different niches that can offer the potential to make money online.

4. $500+ thanks to Wealthy Affiliate Training

@Enstinemuki first joined WA back in 2009 or 2010. He has taken different angles than most affiliate marketers, including buying and selling a PLR book, developing a traffic tool for Twitter, and then selling his site in 2012 for $13,500. He has recently returned to WA after many years away and is excited about getting back into the internet marketing field.

In total, @Enstinemuki earned around $500 through WA training. One of the most powerful parts of his experience is that he used the training for much more than traditional affiliate marketing. This highlights the versatility of WA and the sheer amount of information that is offered.

5. My Blogs Earned Over $100k Part-Time in 2018

Here’s an impressive WA story from @EddySalomon. In 2017, he started a brand new site that wasn’t related to making money online at all. Although Eddy already had success promoting WA on his main site, he found his new site surprisingly challenging, with slow progress. It took until Fall of 2018 for him to see traffic. Once he started to monetize, he made a total of $3,745.08 from the site for 2018. Most of that income wasn’t from sales but from ads.

While his total income for the new site was relatively low in 2018, the earnings show significant potential. Eddy predicts substantial growth in 2019 and I’m inclined to agree. As he points out, the new site is just a side project. His main site is earning much more income. He made more than $100,000 across the two sites in 2018, with income from sales and from ads.

6. Just launched my 2nd ebook. $7,500 in profit in 2 months for the combo.

@DebbieGartne has had a different online experience than most. She started blogging in 2010, using her blog to drive traffic to a physical location. It wasn’t till early 2017 that she started trying to monetize her blog. Her success story doesn’t come from this but from an SEO eBook that she developed towards the end of 2017 and a second that she launched later.

She took the powerful approach of seeking affiliates herself, who do the marketing work. Even after paying out commissions to affiliate and all the fees, Debbie earned an additional $7,500 in profit – within two months! Talk about impressive. This is from a girl with a blog on flooring and eBooks on SEO.

7. I Will Hit My First $1,000 month on Amazon

@KennyLee was excited to report earnings of $708.98 from sales on Amazon, along with a $6 bounty. This figure puts him well on track for making his first $1,000 before the end of 2019. His success comes from a site that earned nothing at all a year ago. How’s that for fantastic? As Kenny himself says, “consistency and focus is the key of growth and success”.

For those curious, Kenny is operating in the health supplement niche. This is an evergreen niche. Everyone wants to boost their health – and there are plenty of interesting supplements out there to choose from.

8. WA Helps Me Make 5 Figure Income in 2019

@FlorenceKi is a successful WA affiliate, working towards the goal of 300 WA premium memberships per year. Her most recent success story is quitting her C-level job, one that was causing her considerable stress and difficulty. She had been working on her blog during this role, without seeing dramatic success.

Yet, she had some amazing news when she quit her job. She was offered contracts in the fields of branding and digital marketing. The associated work is directly related to the skills that she has learned at WA. Florence plans to seek success in both directions – through the new career opportunities and through promoting WA.

Her dedication is amazing, especially her willingness to work her way through difficult circumstances.

9. Bringing the wife home. A real WA success story.

There are two powerful parts to the success story from @ShawnMartin. The first is his movement from being in debt and poverty to earning a regular income through affiliate marketing. His experience can’t have looked encouraging at the start – as his niche was far too broad and he made almost no money. Once he shifted to a new niche (with advice from WA members), he earned $1,400 within a month.

The second part is his current success. He has two sites hosted through WA and other sites hosted elsewhere. He has been able to work full-time from home with his wife. That’s an incredible milestone – and he is still progressing! They are now working on a pet project that his wife has designed. It’s an amazing story. It will be amazing to see where Shawn ends up in a few years.

10. Two years at Wealthy Affiliate!

The title of her post suggests, @JelenaBB has been at WA for two years. Before her WA experience, Jelena was working as a social media manager. Despite this, she had little knowledge about website building, much less how to make money online. In her two years at WA, Jelena has developed not one but two successful websites.

That’s not all! She is now doing much better financially than before. She is debt-free and has been able to buy her own home.

11. My First $30,000 Month – Well Almost $29,330.68 To Be Exact

The success story from @mday849 is certainly an impressive one. He has been a member of WA for just two years, yet he’s managed to hit almost $30,ooo a month in profit. His story is powerful evidence of how an online business can be a full-time earning machine. He also provides plenty of information about the approaches that he’s taken.

His key message is that success takes hard work – and lots of it! He still puts in 8-10 hours daily, for growing his business and learning more. Being creative is important too. Much of @mday849’s income didn’t come from affiliate marketing. He used a variety of other techniques as well.

12. Highest Affiliate Commissions – New Record Today! ($6,582+)

@JohnMks has a different type of success story to tell. He hit an amazing record, making more than $6,500 in commissions from a single sale. His previous record was around $3,700, which is seriously impressive too.

Some Wealthy Affiliate members love riding on chariots as they move around Marrakesh, Morocco.

While John never talks about his niche or the products he is selling, high commissions like this certainly aren’t impossible. You often see them from high-ticket items, ones that people are paying thousands of dollars for. His main piece of advice is to never give up. That applies to any niche and is especially important in the beginning.

13. Email Contact Marketing – $714 for 10 min “work”

This post comes from @JohnMks as well. This time, he isn’t talking about his overall success. He’s focusing on one specific approach that he uses – email marketing. John managed to earn $714 from a single email that he sent, which received 16 clicks. Not too shabby!

Email lists like this really are powerful tools. They take time to build, sure, but WA can help you to learn. John’s experience shows that lists do pay off. The approach is also another revenue stream. Having multiple sources of online income is a great way to grow your business and earn in the long-term.

14. Yes I Made it! 6 months in. Hard work Pays off!

@Rahyeroyce is an affiliate marketing newbie. He’s only been in the field for six months. In that time, he’s managed to build two different affiliate marketing sites. One of them promotes WA itself, the other is a niche site. He’s currently earning from them both. He’s also had plenty of attractive offers to make websites for other people.

This type of success shows that you don’t need to be an expert. You can start at a very basic level and still find success. You might even do so within a year like Rahye has.

15. Month 7 – $4550

Here’s another affiliate marketer who has found success early on in his sites. In particular, @Dylanrieger hit the $4,550 mark, just seven months after his site went live. That being said, he isn’t a complete beginner. Dylan has been at WA for around 2.5 years, with various successes and failures along the way. It has taken Dylan time to find the right approaches and the right niche to start making consistent money online.

His experience shows the importance of persistence – something that he mentions in his post as well. While some people are successful with their first idea, others find that they have to try a few different angles before they find their way.

Other Wealthy Affiliate members enjoy being found by the seaside in foreign countries like Casablanca, Morocco.

16. Website Sold: $40,000

This success story comes from @Dylanrieger as well and was around four months after the previous one. As the title suggests, Dylan managed to sell his site (using Empire Flippers) for $40,000. That money is an incredible achievement in its own right.

For Dylan, the sale also acted as a stepping stone. His post highlighted his plans to use the money to outsource content creation for his future websites. This type of financial outlay can be painful in the short-term, but it is a powerful approach for long-term success. The decision is also a clear indication that Dylan is confident in his approaches.

17. Joined the 10K Per Month Club. January Earnings $13,481.39

In his post, @BrokFTJFH highlights just how much business success can change in a year. His monthly income went from roughly $300 to $4,000 within a year and then to more than $10,000 per month roughly a year later. These shifts in income are huge – and they’re not unusual. In fact, one of the main reasons that affiliate marketers often don’t succeed is that they give up before they see significant income changes.

Brok’s success didn’t end with $10,000 per month either. He reported earnings of almost $13,500 for January 2018, suggesting that his site was continuing to grow and thrive.

18. 1st $1000 month – Wealthy Affiliate success!

The success story from @CraigUKTV might not seem as impressive as the previous one, but he has still made amazing progress. He hit his goal of $1,000 per month in January 2018. This achievement was close to a year and five months after joining WA, which is great going.

Craig provides more details than most about his niche. He focuses on TV that is delivered over the internet (IPTV), using IPTV subscriptions, VPN subscriptions, and services like Amazon for revenue. The focus on subscriptions has advantages too, as customers will often be members for many months. When this happens, the affiliate marketer can end up with a passive source of income.

19. How Much A Single Review Post Can Make? Five Figure!

The post from @Cena1975 highlights a fantastic point. Sometimes sales success is strongly related to the success of a single post. For some people, like Cena, that post may be unexpected and not one that particularly stood out. However, Cena chose to take advantage of that one post (which had made him an impressive $10,000 or so) and use it as a template. This helped him to create another popular post that became a passive source of income.

Cena’s outcomes show that sometimes success comes in unexpected places. You might find that a few of the posts you make are extremely popular, while ones that you poured your heart into never take up in quite the same way. If nothing else, this pattern is a reason to keep working on your business.

20. Sold my first blog for $28,000 after 13 months

@Sporkypie has had an interesting experience with her website. Like many beginners, she went through periods of not working much on her site, due to other life commitments. She estimates that she had done around six months of work in the 13 months that her site has been live – resulting in almost 60 articles.

She wasn’t looking to sell the blog, but one of her competitors reached out to her with an offer. Including previous income and the $28,000 sale price, @Sporkypie estimates that she earned close to $600 per article. That’s an astonishing outcome. She now has some money and experience to keep going in the field.

21. Does Wealthy Affiliate Really Work? – $400 From One Post

@Bonzo124 is another WA member who shows you can find success from individual posts. He had around 30 to 40 pieces of content on his site at that time. His process for this particular piece wasn’t unusual, although he did manage to find a very good keyword. The post has since ranked in Google and he has earned around $400 in total from the one post.

This isn’t the end of the story either. Bonzo mentions that the post converts well. If he is able to drive more traffic to it, then he should be able to raise his income even higher.

 

22. I got a $650 Sale with $50 monthly recurring!

In her success story, @Herinnelson highlights how multiple income methods can be successful. For her, this includes book writing and a web design business. She is taking advantage of the skills that she has learned at Wealthy Affiliate to redesign the websites of her clients and move them to WordPress. She is charging around $650 for the transition, along with $50 per month for management.

Based on her title, @Herinnelson has made one such sale, which is exciting news. She also has five other websites through Wealthy Affiliate. Her style shows that you don’t need to stick to the most common techniques. There are plenty of different ways to earn.

23. How I Earned $9465.05 Thanks To WA Members

If you want impressive results, check out @EddySalomon’s success story. He reports being able to earn $9,465.05 in February 2018. That’s despite the fact that February is a shorter month and includes Valentine’s Day. It’s easy to see how a different month could lead to even more income.

Another cool thing is that Eddy relies on multiple income sources. His screenshot shows this well, highlighting different totals from various programs. It’s likely that many (if not all) of those income sources will increase with time.

Such successes are a result of the excellent training at Wealthy Affiliate

24. It’s Been 2 Years & 2 Months In WA. Finally Quit My Job. Yayyy!

@ArjunUllaz has reached a goal that many people dream of. After a little over two years at WA, he’s been able to quit his 9-to-5 job and become a full-time internet marketer. He estimates that he’s earning three times the salary he was receiving at his job, making the decision a smart one.

Arjun is likely to see much more growth as time goes on. He now has more time to dedicate to his website, along with a ‘never give up’ mentality. These advantages should take him far.

25. $223.50 Made While In ICU.

@Lakbar12 joined WA towards the end of 2017, with barely any previous experience online. She was determined to follow WA training and do her best to make it work for her. She didn’t need to wait long to find success. After being a member for around 41 days, she received her first commission of $8 immediately and $167 pending. She received another commission not long after of $223.50.

26. Newbies Pay Attention! $5,195.20 Affiliate Check for June: Thanks WA!

@Tmaltz has seen impressive success on WA. He’s aiming for consistent income of $10,000 a month from affiliate marketing. He’s on track too. In May of 2018, he earned a total of $6,454. His post estimates that he’ll make just under $8,000 for June.

That’s not even the really exciting part. What’s cool is that much of this income is from just two sales – one of which was for an amazing $5,195.20. He also mentions the importance of scaling your business. Doing so is critical for increasing your income in the long-term.

27. 11 sales on amazon today!

In his short success story, @Dalwhu talks about how the training from WA really does work. As he points out, even small successes are important. He reports that he made 11 sales through his niche site on the day of posting and six the previous day. These sales are for a site that has been around for a little over a year.

This type of success is the beginning of something great. Now that @Dalwhu is starting to see momentum, he can grow on it and make his business even more successful. He even mentions that both sales and traffic are increasing.

28. MY WA Success Story

@Roamy didn’t have much hope when she first started at WA. She simply thought that she had little to lose and plenty of time to spare. Like many WA members, she was wrong in that assumption. In fact, she was able to go on a vacation using money that she earned through her website – a trip that cost more than $3,000. Hers is an impressive success story, especially when she had so little hope to begin with.

29. 5 Years Ago Today I Made My First Income Online

@Chris Lee is a long-time member of WA, earning his first affiliate income more than five years ago. He has seen considerable progress in that time and now works on three niche websites, along with an eCommerce site. He’s also been inching closer to the goal of 300 premium WA memberships in a year.

As he explains, the income is a fantastic outcome, but that’s not the best part. Instead, he’s thrilled about the ability to be his own boss. That outcome isn’t a pipe dream. It’s one that various WA members do achieve.

30. Amazon: I Am Lovin’ It! (My Biggest Sale So Far)

Six months before her post @Zarina had created a niche affiliate site. She has reached some significant milestones with the post, with a featured snippet in Google and more than 50 visitors per day. Her current success story highlights her biggest sale yet, a $570 tent. The sale netted her around $30 in commissions.

That’s not all. The sale in question had nothing to do with her niche at all. This pattern often happens with Amazon, as their cookie doesn’t disappear immediately and Amazon is exceptional at selling products. So, even if you don’t convince people to buy the product that you’re promoting – you may end up selling something entirely different.

31. Just sold two sites for $9,000!

@JeremyH86 has found success in a different way, by selling his two income-making sites on Flippa. One of them sold for $2,000 and the other for an impressive $7,000. Both of the sites were relatively new, although they were receiving traffic and some income.

For Jeremy, these sales mark the end of his niche site experience, at least for the moment. He has a new job opportunity to work towards and his earnings from the site sales are certain to come in handy. Jeremy states that he may end up owning his own sites again at some point, but he would probably focus on buying existing sites, rather than starting from the beginning.

32. Thanks to WA our companies are taking off

@Marshajenkin has taken advantage of WA in a different way. While she has built niche sites in the past, her current success comes from using the training and support at WA to build websites that support physical companies. The companies are ones that she and her husband run. One is a contracting company, while another involves the acquisition and management of properties.

She posted in February 2018, a time that is normally slow for business. In this case, creating the websites through WA had made all of the difference. She has seen a couple of significant contracts, including one for $9,000. It’s an impressive outcome, especially as she can continue to build and develop the sites, along with her new niche site.

33. 3 Dollars Short of $8K – My First Progress Report

@RD40 has been a WA member since September 2016 and has been consistently building his business. Like many beginners, he made no income at all in his first year (2016). He saw a total of $329.84 for 2017. It wasn’t until 2018 that RD’s income really took off. He had earned $10,454.45 by June of 2018.

An even more exciting aspect is that most of that success came from May and June. He earned $1,458.99 in May and then $8,940.00. It’s clear that those figures are just a sign of things to come.

34. Finally Earning A Passive Income! WOOT WOOT

One of @MartyE’s biggest breakthroughs came from understanding the importance of focused traffic. He is in the unusual situation of owning a membership group with more than 37,000 members. While the group isn’t great to sell to, he was able to develop a paid membership option.

By taking this approach, he’s been able to earn £651.45 annually. Other approaches might earn more, but that’s not the point. Marty’s approach is very passive and takes advantage of an audience that he couldn’t sell well to otherwise. Having multiple projects like this would be a good way to generate consistent meaningful income.

35. $17,000 from one blog post over 2 years

@LizHennessy highlights a pattern that many bloggers find themselves doing, where they are simply trying to do too many different angles all at once. Liz mentions the risk of doing so and how it is important to focus on what is working. In her case, she has one review post that performs particularly well. That post was in the first position for more than a year and is now in the second position in Google for the targeted keyword.

Visiting the Himba Tribe, Namibia.

The impressive thing is that she’s earned $17,000 from that post in the two years that it has been live. This is why it’s so important to keep writing content (especially reviews), even when it seems like you’re making little traction. You’ll never really know which posts are going to take off and become extremely popular.

36. 4.7K for the month of December and Setting My New Goals for 2019.

It’s not surprising that @Debs66 is excited about her progress. She earned more than £4,700 for the month of December 2018. That’s not even her highest monthly profit. She made just above £6,000 for August. Those totals partly came from affiliate marketing and partly from the local side of her business.

Her success really is amazing. She started at WA in 2016, with no previous online marketing experience. She’d never even tried her hand at building a website before. She puts her success down to dedication. She simply refused to give up.

37. First $1,000 Month!

@GrantSudduth hit is first $100 commission day towards the end of 2017. It’s a powerful early goal, one that many people focus on. His current success post highlights another achievement – hitting more than $1,000 a month. His next goal is to reach $2,000 per month in income.

Like many others, he says that the key technique is just ‘keeping at it’. He’s entirely right. Being consistent and working towards goals are key areas that successful affiliate marketers have in common.

38. My first $700 commission, first $2,000 week

@MozMary focuses on the idea that success comes from keeping going in the right direction and having a good niche. She suggests that your niche should be one that allows you to be yourself while taking advantage of your skills. While it is possible to be successful in a niche you know nothing about, having a background in the topic certainly helps.

It’s clear that Mary knows what she’s talking about – as she’s recently hit his first $700 day, along with a $2,000 week. Both of those financial outcomes are impressive. They suggest that Mary is well on her way, with a business that’s going to grow further over time.

39. Influencer Success – Besting My Best!

For @LynneHuy, WA has played a huge role in helping her to be successful as an influencer online. She was charging around $50 per post for her services just a few years ago. As of March 2019, she has been charging $360 for the same service. That’s not all. She will sometimes be contacted with offers, including one of $700 – for a task that took around 2.5 hours.

How’s that for impressive? Like all WA members, Lynne started small and it took a while to see any success. Now, she keeps hitting success after success. There can be no doubt that her business will continue to grow. No doubt she’ll have even more amazing stories to tell in the future.

40. I Failed at Affiliate Marketing until I Found Wealthy Affiliate

@Phil1944 tried affiliate marketing before he ever tried WA. He didn’t have any significant plan. Plus, the services that we rely on now were only just getting started. Finding WA was the solution that he needed. One of the most important aspects for Phil was how WA provides step-by-step information, teaching users the processes needed to make money online.

While Phil doesn’t talk much about his success, he does say that he has been seeing affiliate marketing success in just three months. He also mentions an affiliate program that he’s a part of. This program pays him $120 for a $65 sale. That’s beyond impressive.

41. Sold My Movie Blog for $3,000 on Flippa!

As @Karax mentions, a $3,000 website sale isn’t an incredible success story. While that’s true, the movie blog in question only made $8 in a year. One reason is that most of the commissions in the movie niche as small. After all, there are so many inexpensive ways to watch movies.

Selling the site was part of @Karax’s decision to start making significant money online. The $3,000 will be a significant help in developing his own business. He also had fun with his movie site and learned a lot in the process. From his perspective, the experience was worth it and he came away fully satisfied.

42. What Commission Growth Looks Like

In @Marlinda1’s success story, she highlights the way that her Amazon Associates commission has grown over time. Her first deposit came in December 2017, for $10. She hadn’t seen any commissions before that time and Amazon had even closed her account. By May 2018, Marlinda was earning more than $300 in commission per month. By July this was $530.

This type of outcome is very common for affiliate marketing. It’s easy to quit when you are hardly getting any commissions but stick with it. As Marlinda’s experience shows, income will often jump unexpectedly.

43. $14,000 in 3 months.

When @Saco started at WA, he aimed to be making $1,500 each month by the 1.5-year mark. He has more than surpassed that goal, making between $4,000 and $5,500 monthly by the same point in time. His site achieves somewhere from 25,000 to 30,000 visitors each month.

Not only is @Saco seeing considerable success, but there is also plenty of growth on the horizon. His traffic and profits show that he knows what he is doing. He is also starting to look at email marketing. This should offer another income stream in the long-term, which is fantastic news.

44. How to Make Money with Wealthy Affiliate? A $150,000 Way!

@OnlineBZDog has had an interesting experience with WA. His original goal was to develop a site to share experiences and help people with small businesses. However, the SEO techniques that he has learned through WA opened an entirely different door – one that led to a $150,000 contract.

This happened through a personal contact, where a company appeared to have been severely hit by a Google update. @OnlineBZDog was able to determine that the SEO firm hired by the company had implemented some shady practices. He was able to use his WA account to show what had happened, then propose a contract to resolve the issues.

45. How An Old Disused Website Can Make Three Figures In A Week!

Like many WA members, @Roybretton has multiple projects on the go. This includes some websites that he is actively promoting and others that he isn’t. One of the inactive sites has plenty of content but hasn’t had new content for roughly two years. Despite this, the site continues to make money every week. The niche is seasonal, so the income varies from week-to-week.

Roy’s experience shows that it’s worth holding onto well-developed sites, even if you’re no longer working on them. You never know which sites will earn you passive income. You might also find, like Roy has, that it’s worth coming back to the site later on and growing it once more.

46. Passed $1000 in commissions

@CLoney has a short and sweet story about her WA success. She has moved from $0 per month in Amazon sales up to more than $500 per month – within a two-month window. She links some of her success to suggestions from WA members, which included making her site more reader-friendly.

My Own Results (From A Non-MMO Site)

I’ve been doing affiliate marketing for about a decade now. I started out in the VPN niche with my first successful website earning over $10k/month. I’ve since sold those websites, and started new ones. I don’t like to share the revenue or specifics of One More Cup of Coffee just because haters will scream “It’s only because you are in the Make Money Online niche”, or “the only people who make money are the ones selling the courses”.

I try to practice what I preach, so I do run some websites on the side. Here’s my results from December 2018:

Even More Results: Success Stories By Year

All of the awesome results you saw above are just a few that I’ve chosen to highlight here. There are many more. Back in 2017 I started tracking the stories I saw in my feed, and I’ve created individual “hubs” where you can go an investigate each story.

I hope this long list of results makes it clear what Wealthy Affiliate is offering – a chance to learn a practical, proven method to earn money online. If you haven’t created your account yet, I recommend reading over my review to see exactly what you’re jumping into (awesomeness).

Keep in mind, these are only the stories which are public. Many Wealthy Affiliate members choose not to share their results so they don’t attract copycats. There’s nothing wrong with that. You’ll also notice quite a few members that have snowballed their success. For example, you may see someone in 2017 posting about their first Amazon sale, then in 2018 see their first $1,000 month, and in 2019 quit their job.

Here’s the blog posts by year:

Caju: Update: 12/08/16

Sorry folks, but I’m afraid I jumped ship on Wealthy Affiliate a few years ago, so I won’t be able to offer any advice or support through that community. Even if I was compelled to drop in from time to time and answer a few questions, I’m unable to do so now unless I renew my premium membership, which is a complete and utter bullshit policy.

So be forewarned…if you upgrade your membership to premium, it must be for life. If you cancel your membership, your access to the site becomes restricted.

My reaction: You will do well to join the Wealthy Affiliate community members who are on their way to enjoying financial freedom. An example of a super affiliate recently trained from Wealthy Affiliate speaks from the video inserted below. They are close to two million people within the community now, but the world with four billion internet users needs more workers online.
