If you have been researching for a way to make money online and is feeling overwhelmed by the choices, I can relate.
Given that the internet is a treasure trove of opportunities but unfortunately also of scams, it is often more than not, a struggle to find something legit and proven to work.
That’s why I wrote this blog post, to provide a light for those who are still groping about in the dark for the course/platform/opportunity that can guide them to make a legitimate income online.
I am just going to jump straight in and suggest you look into Wealthy Affiliate. If you haven’t heard of Wealthy Affiliate, you should give it a try because it offers a FREE membership that is not shabby at all.

There are many positive things being said of Wealthy Affiliate. I am going to share 5 of them and these are my personal opinion and represent to me, the most important reasons why I think it’s worth your consideration and investment.
Reason #1 – Legit and Proven Platform
Nothing is more important than this. I have been scammed and so have many others, by products that over promise and grossly under deliver. The internet is filled with scams by unscruplous people who try to rip off your hard-earned money.
If you Google “Wealthy Affiliate Reviews”, you can find a good mix of content that speak highly of Wealthy Affiliate.
In fact, I was first drawn to Wealthy Affiliate because of the positive reviews on it.
But I was not convinced easily because I had been scammed before…
So I signed up for their FREE membership which has no expiry nor any hidden fee. It offers a perfect way for anyone to figure out if this deal is for real.

I have been with Wealthy Affiliate since March 2017 and for over a year, I have grown tremendously in my understanding of building an online business. This is without doubt, a fully legit platform and as far as results go, I started making money from my 3rd month onwards via my affiliate links.
Initially it was a few dollars here and there but it proves to me that people are visiting my website and purchasing products through the affiliate links dotted across my quality reviews. Yes, the key is to write and publish quality works.
So the short version of my testimony is that Wealthy Affiliate is legit and for an online noob like myself, it has proven to work by just me taking the training and implementing the steps as taught.
Reason #2 – No Special Skills Required
There are many ways to make money online. Some like online trading requires a steep learning curve and even after you have learnt the technical skills, you need to keep rewiring your mentality for success (Read: DISCIPLINE!)
Yes, I know this because I trade and on most days, winning and losing have LITTLE to do with technical ability. It’s to do with having a disciplined mind. We can discuss that further in another blog post but today, we won’t go there.
My point here is that Wealthy Affiliate does not require you to have any SPECIAL skills.
You can be a complete newbie but if you go through the training proper, I GUARANTEE you will learn and be able to build your own website to start an online business.
And yes, you can do it from DAY 1!
No sugar coating here. You can really start on DAY 1 but of course, you shouldn’t be expecting amazing results or results at all. It takes time to build that, as with any business.
Reason #3 – Get Immediate Help without Googling Around
By far, this is one of the biggest perks of being involved with Wealthy Affiliate. Maybe I’m just lazy but Googling for the right answer online sometimes lead me deeper into that black hole, which I wanted to get out of in the first place.
With Wealthy Affiliate, there is an amazing community that is ready to help you with any questions you have and I know for myself when I first started out, I had a 1000 questions racing through my mind.
The difference between Google (or other search engines) versus Wealthy Affiliate’s Pay-it-forward community is that most of the answers you get from Wealthy Affiliate come to you tried and tested.
Let’s just say your questions or issues are not unique to yourself. Others had walked that path and now they are ploughing back to the community.
If you want to succeed, get a MENTOR. Wealthy Affiliate community is a treasure trove of MENTORS! You just got to ASK and you will RECEIVE.
And when you start to gain traction and experience results, it’s time to plough back to the community and PAY IT FORWARD. That’s the DNA and atmosphere of Wealthy Affiliate.
Reason #4 – Wealthy Affiliate Evolves!
I joined Wealthy Affiliate in March 2017 as a premium member.
A few months into it, I started noticing that Wealthy Affiliate is a very updated platform. By this, I am referring to the platform updates and new trainings that are constantly added to its repository.
All premium members can enjoy every NEW feature / training that is created, at NO EXTRA COST.
Evolution is part of life, as we all know it. I have used platforms that hardly update and thus you are left with the same content from day 1 until the day you decide to quit.
Unless the content is about fundamental laws of the universe, there is a need for refreshed content to meet with the ever-changing landscape. In fact, with the recent commotion over GDPR Compliance, the owners of Wealthy Affiliate themselves released a blog post to explain what GDPR is, why it comes about and most importantly, WHAT and HOW you need to take action to stay within this newly minted EU regulation.
Interested to digress? Read about the GDPR Compliance here.
At this juncture, I like to digress just a little to suggest openly that online business is a dynamic business and because it is so tightly linked to technology, the need to adjust and evolve is even more relevant and crucial if you want to succeed.
I think Wealthy Affiliate shows by example, how it continues to develop and evolve despite having a massive following of over 1 million members. This is no mean feat but it shows that a lot of effort and deliberation went behind every update launch to ensure members get the BEST chance to succeed by not falling behind the times or failing to access resources readily because the platform is not optimised (user-friendly!)
To this end, I have to give it to Wealthy Affiliate for their tremendous effort to deliver cutting edge technology in a friendly and easy to navigate platform. Two Thumb Ups for this herculean effort!
Reason #5 – Verified Blueprint For Success
With online courses that claim to help you make money online, you often find that they motivate a lot, provide core directions for action and even tools for achieving that BUT they don’t go deep into the details.
In other words, you kind of know what you need to do but “kind of” isn’t good enough on most days.
Wealthy Affiliate has continuously churned out successful entrepreneurs, some of whom went on to create million dollar business (AGAIN, this is not overnight work!) and when we examine the testimonies of these successful case studies, they share clearly they didn’t do ANYTHING EXTRA except for following the training provided at Wealthy Affiliate.
Why and How is this POSSIBLE?
I was skeptical at the beginning but when I took the plunge and started the training and implementing diligently the things I was taught, I was surprised to see results. To be honest, I didn’t expect to see results because I was heavily crippled in the world of social media.
I didn’t have a network of friends, followers whom I can promote to.
Essentially, I had to work from ground zero and hope for the best.
If you have a similar profile like mine, you probably feel discouraged or wonder if online success can ever hit you. I get it.
Thus, when that flicker of hope blossomed into reality as I started to make sales, I am really confident to suggest that EVEN IF you have no experience whatsoever in online business, you can do it if you follow the steps and commit.
But I will let in a secret. What’s tough about the steps in the training is not their technicality. With technical knowledge, you can pick up over time, BUT the fact that most of us are juggling a day job, a family and whatever that comes in between, it may be challenging to stick to a consistent routine of generating quality content for our business.
LynneHuy, one of the members at Wealthy Affiliate is generating 8-9 articles per day for her blogs and she’s a mother of two (If I didn’t recall wrongly). So there, it’s challenging BUT NOT impossible.
Here’s The Deal…
I shared my 5 TOP reasons why you should start with Wealthy Affiliate to build your online business and income.
I also revealed the greatest challenge you will potentially face (secret mentioned above).
If you think you can manage this challenge and plough in with all of your heart for at least one solid year and not give up, then success is just a matter of time, as you will definitely see results coming back to you…on days when you don’t expect it.
At least, that’s my experience. 🙂
