Our journey to Wealthy Affiliate is a bit like a Disney story, so here it goes…
The Beginning of our Online Venture
Once upon a time, a long long time ago, there was a gorgeous girl and a very handsome guy who were happened to be married to each other. They both had very rewarding jobs, however they had a very keen interest in the business world, and they have been looking around for opportunities both online and the real world. They took some shiny lookalike opportunities, but they happened to be disastrous financially and mentally. They learnt a great deal from those experiences and have promised to help others not fall for these quick get rich schemes.
Success of Motivational Videos
One day the girl or let’s say the Mrs, she was listening to a motivational video of Tony Robbins on YouTube as she is very much into meditation, motivational stuff, healthy eating, exercise, mindful living, and the list goes on (actually the list is endless). Anyway, whilst she was listening to the video, an advert popped up about how you can start a business online and have all the money and freedom to travel the world (both Mr and Mrs love traveling). So she watched the full video of this advert (surprisingly!) and she was totally sold out to the idea, so she forwarded the advert video to her Mr, who didn’t watch the video of course, as the man has better things to do in life, such as watching Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, and all of the (well most of it) horror, thriller movies in his spare time.
The Mr was Sceptical
The Mrs did ask him a few times regarding this video, but the man was sceptical about it and therefore continued to watch The Walking Dead series. The Mrs left it at that because if the Mr was not too sure then the Mrs was 100% going with the Mr.
Advert Kept Popping Up
But the YouTube advert did not stop there, as every time the Mrs watched something on YouTube, same or similar companies advert came up during every interesting/motivational videos. Slowly the idea of an online business was gaining more and more interest than the Tony Robbins videos.
The Mr is a Man of His Word
She did mention occasionally to the Mr and this time he agreed (well kind of) and stated, “we will investigate it during the half term holiday”. This was reassuring for the Mrs as the Mr is ‘Man of his Word’, therefore the Mrs added this to the common ‘to-do-list’, where it can be a visual reminder. She’s also the fan of vision boards and goal settings etc.
Anyway, came the half term holiday and she reminded him again. After a light discussion, time was set (well after watching a thriller movie) to look into the videos, as by this time she had sent him about five different business idea videos to the poor fella, but not so poor as he hasn’t watched any of them!
However, they both went through the videos together and decided to sign up for one of them, paying the joining fee. They went through the lessons quickly as the lessons were very interesting and motivational to the Mrs! She had even forgotten Tony Robbins too!
What Was The Course About?
The course was all about the mindset change (now you know why she had forgotten Tony Robbins). This was very interesting, motivational and make belief to change your life forever. But the Mr being on the intellectual side as usual started to wonder quickly (two weeks after) why they were “pumping us up” rather than teaching us about affiliate marketing as it had said on the tin (the advert).
So, he, very soon figured out (while the Mrs was still on the high!) that the company were setting us up to sell their products only! “Well, fair enough, that is a good opportunity, we won’t have to work hard building a brand(s) etc., everything is done for us” said the Mrs. Yes, that’s a plus point said the Mr, but look at the upgrading fees, not only that, but climbing up the ladder to their highest mountain, their member fees are in tens of thousands of dollars, when will we be able to get that back before we make any money. The membership fees are monthly, so all the earned money will go into fees.
The Mrs was now coming out of the highly pumped up water balloon, so she said, “I want to see how it unfolds a little bit more, so I can’t say much about it, as I want to test them out myself first”.
Another week went by, she still carried on watching the tutorial videos (more like motivational up videos, which were similar to Tony Robbins, rather than business tutorials).
The Mr now for the past couple of days had taken the back seat and was letting the Mrs get trained well in motivation and mindset change!
Actions Taken By The Mr
In the next few days the Mr searched for this company on Google for reviews, and it seemed like people whom have been with them had mixed opinions, mostly about the hefty fees, and people were mortgaging their homes to pay the membership fees and upselling fees. Some individuals felt they were trapped as they’ve invested tens of thousands of dollars, hence how can they pull out now without even earning this money back! Some bloggers even stated that “96% of people were still not making ANY money. The Mr printed the reports and blogs out and showed it to the Mrs. From there was the actual mindset change occurred towards the online business.
Online Venture Continued
They both went on and looked at two more affiliate programs, which were good in their own ways, but not what the couple was looking for.
After another week, the Mr happened to come across…
…which was backed by impressive reviews and very happy members. Also, the amazing and surprising fact was it had ZERO joining fee to pay to be a STARTER member for the life of the membership. Therefore, after a brief look into the contents of the free lessons, the couple were totally sold and did not need anymore convincing (well, to create a business and learn how to set it up, ALL in one place and ALL for FREE, wouldn’t anyone be sold to the idea?!)
What a BUZZ so Far!
The couple joined straightaway and started going through the lessons and learnt so much in just couple of days. The lessons were very practical and informative (anyone can follow and understand), which allowed the couple to steam ahead with their online affiliate marketing business. By the end of the free lessons they had built their website:
They also got not one, but TWO FREE websites as part of the membership, they learnt how to use WORDPRESS to create and manage their website, they had learnt how to increase their websites ranking on Google by using the method ‘Search Engine Optimization’ (SEO), they had learnt how to use keywords to get their rankings improved. They learnt tons, how much can be explained here (it’ll take too long, so going to stop).
During the learning phase they also got their website published and got it to go live on the Internet (what a buzz it was for the couple). Now they were both ready to make money online (all this in just a few days).
Working Together Online
Mr and Mrs worked together as a team and were consistently doing the work as instructed in the lessons. The WEALTHY AFFILIATE community was at the reach of their hand anytime they needed help (including the two BIG BOSSES). Queries and questions were answered within seconds. Not only that the two bosses (Kyle & Carson) are both hands on and always helping learners on a practical basis within the community in WEALTHY AFFILIATE.
Success Found At Last 🙂
This is the kind of stuff they were looking for, both motivational and practical. They are on a venture to making money and living happily ever after.
