Paul's Success Story
This success story is about Paul, who has been with Wealthy Affiliate since 2018. Paul is already starting to make money with his websites and has nothing but praise for the best affiliate marketing training course for beginners - Wealthy Affiliate.
With Paul's first blog post, he likened his membership with Wealthy Affiliate as a treasure map found! His feeling was that he had all the tools and resources necessary to find his "treasure," making extra money.
He doesn't expect an easy road but encourages new members to keep going forward. To keep doing all of the lessons, to watch every video and to complete every task. Always keep moving forward and ask for help when you get stuck.
Paul's persistence is now starting to pay off. Already in eight months, he has earned more than enough to pay for his annual membership with Wealthy Affiliate. He feels this is only the beginning.
In an earlier blog post, Paul listed many accomplishments from the prior six months. Keep in mind that Paul has never done affiliate marketing before nor has he ever created a website.
- 1Paul has created two different .com websites. One of them is for his affiliate marketing with Wealthy Affiliate, and the second one is for his ministry.
- 2He has completed the first four levels of the training and is in progress on completing the final, fifth level. Paul did not rush through the training but took extra time to research each of the tasks for the individual lessons. He wanted to make sure he understood it thoroughly before moving on to the next level.
- 3Paul now has a much better understanding of terminologies, such as affiliate programs, Google Adword, Google Adsense, and Google Analytics.
- 4He also has some new technical skills which allow him to copy files from one website to another.
- 5He can create unique websites with a first landing page.
- 6He now knows what it means to write a niche-focused keyword-rich article and write them so that Google indexes them within a day.
- 7Paul understands now how to research and find very targeted niches and low competition keywords.
- 8His social ranking within the Wealthy Affiliate community has significantly improved along with writing nine different blog posts, created two tutorial training, and he has attracted 1.2K followers.
Paul did not know how to do any of these things when he first started. On top of that, English is not his first language. So improving his English writing has also been a learning experience for him.
Paul's Goals for the Next 6 Months
Paul has already set goals for the second half of his first year.
- 11,000 Referrals to Wealthy Affiliate.
- 2Double the amount he has already earned over the first six months.
- 32,000 followers in the Wealthy Affiliate community.
- 4Create ten more Wealthy Affiliate tutorials. What most people don't understand about creating tutorials is that they take a lot of time to research and design. You have first to gain a thorough understanding of the subject matter you are trying to communicate.
- 5Create a new niche website with a focus on something other than Wealthy Affiliate.
Paul's Encouragement to All The Affiliate Marketing Newbies
While Paul is only starting to make money with Wealthy Affiliate, he already some specific items of advice to those who are just beginning:
- 1Learn and master the skill taught in each of the different levels of the training program. Don't rush through the training.
- 2As you're working through the training, take immediate action. Each of the training lessons has a list of tasks for you to complete. It would be easy to acknowledge these tasks but not do them. Don't skip the work!
- 3There are plenty of places within then Wealthy Affiliate community to ask questions. Take advantage of these resources and ask questions if you are not sure of anything during the training.
- 4Focus on learning and accomplishing the tasks at first. Earning money will come as a result.
