Todd's Success Story
This affiliate marketing success story is about Todd, who has been with Wealthy Affiliate since 2014. Todd recently received an online money check for $5,195.20, from just one month of marketing activity of two offers.
When Todd was starting as a newbie at Wealthy Affiliate, he did not understand the whole process of building a niche website or becoming an authoritative blog.
His focus was on the money, as are most new online marketers. All new members to WA hear the same thing, don't focus on the money but do the work.
Like everyone else, this is tough to do with a family, bills to pay, not a lot of spare time, and maybe already living paycheck to paycheck.
Does Wealthy Affiliate Work?
When Todd first signed up for Wealthy Affiliate, he asked this question himself. He wanted to know if it would be a good investment of his time and money.
Perhaps you can squeeze the membership money out of your monthly budget. But you then need to decide is the education you're going to get is going to be worth your time? You're committing to researching keywords and writing lots of targeted blog posts. Will you ever make big money in the long run?
Todd can now offer proof that Wealthy Affiliate does indeed work. Like so many other successful WA members, he knows that what they teach does work.
Todd's goal for this year was to earn at least $10K per month consistently. Last month he earned $6,454 and the current month is looking to be almost $8K. His goal is within reach.
The Best Affiliate Marketing Training
Wealthy Affiliate provides the best training because it works great!
The process is quite simple. Take the provided WA education seriously. Take every class and lesson and do all of the tasks to the best of your ability.
For some reason, many people think that if paying thousands of dollars for an online marketing product that it is then worth more. By spending more significant sums of money, they consider it more worthy of their time.
Wealthy Affiliate is affordable for most people. As a result, new members do not always take it seriously.
You need to learn the foundation of content marketing, which includes how to target keywords, how to rank content, and how to help your niche visitors out so that you end up with commissions.
Once you learn the basics, you can add email marketing, eCommerce, or even your online training courses.
Learn to Scale Your Business
Once you have learned the basics of content marketing, then you can begin to scale your business. These activities include adding more content to your blog but with reduced involvement on your part.
Once you start to see the revenue from your site, you don't want to spend it all. Re-invest it into your business by hiring writers to create new content for you. These writers will reduce your hours in the site or allow you to focus on different income-earning projects.
Todd writes in a different blog post that when he started at Wealthy Affiliate, he did not like to write content. He would rather have just sold products. Writing scared him, and it does the same for a lot of new members.
Many new online entrepreneurs give up while trying to write content. It is a skill set that improves and perfects as you do more of it. But, you need to do a lot of writing, and many people don't want to commit to that.
Todd learned that you can still scale your business and not do the content writing. He wrote the first 100 blog posts for his website. After that, he started outsourcing his content writing to Fiverr.com.
His first article writing outsourcing gig cost him only $10. For this small amount of money, this same article brings in between 500 - 1,000 visitors to his website each month. For many people, being able to outsource your content writing can make the difference between success or failure.
Anyone Can Do It!
Todd and many other successful online marketers share their success stories to show that anyone can succeed. With this blog post, he shows that even if writing is a deal-breaker to your success, you can still win the race.
What Wealthy Affiliate teaches is the SEO concepts that you need to build an excellent website. They also show you the best way to outsource. With different writers writing the content, you only need to edit it and post it.
Learn From Example
Also, read the articles and posts of the many successful marketers. Learn more from them. Many of them will freely admit that they made mistakes in the process, but all of them will say that mistakes are a part of the learning process.
One piece of advice that many of these same people make, including Todd, is that you never give up! So many new members join up with Wealthy Affiliate thinking that there is a magic formula to success.
When they learn there is no giant, green button to push and print money with, the majority of new members quit and give up. Some even get started with the process and still give up, not seeing results quick enough.
Todd's advice is not to make this same mistake. It will be completely worth it in the long run.
