Welcome to my experience with, “The Wealthy Affiliate.
The University Of Online Learning
Hi, my name is Michael and I would like to invite you to an opportunity to earn an online income. Here at The Wealthy Affiliate, you are given the opportunity to take this program for a test drive.
I first started this program in 2014, but due to a fulltime job and other commitments was unable to devote the time to learn the potential of this program. I made a decision to quit this program to fast track my potential to earn money, through those other get rich schemes. Most of them started off with a very reasonable price I could afford. Let’s say they started off with a cost of 39.99 dollars. My gosh, it seemed to be simple, some of these individuals even offered ready-made stores, all I had to do was pay the price and start selling. Well, I lost a lot of money.
It didn’t take too long before I realized I needed help to make this system work for me. Well for another 129.99 I could get an upgrade which would help me to open these stores I had bought. All I saw was the money I could be making, not the trap I was falling into. I am inside the store, but I need to upgrade to be able to sell the merchandise. Here comes another upgrade. I do not think I need to continue, the end result was trying to get my money-back guarantee.
This was not so easy as it took me a month and a fraud investigation via my bank. Do not let these people try to mislead you any more than they already have. The money you spent is yours and you have the legal right to get it back. As far as the time and frustration, just treat it as a nasty lesson, and you will not go for those get rich schemes again.
I re-joined The Wealthy Affiliate again in September 2018 and have not looked back.
I do believe if you are interested in building a website and earning money online, you owe it to yourself to at least click on the link below. Christmas is coming, most sales are made through the online marketing world. Prepare yourself and learn how to build your own website, and monetize it. Stores are stepping up their online presence. They need people like you to sell their products, by doing this you will earn a commission. I will tell you, this is not a get rich scheme. It is an investment in yourself. Think of it as learning as you are earning.
I kept searching for the opportunity to make money online. I must say at this time I had no idea about building a website, affiliate marketing, MMO(making money online), PPC(pay per click) selling products for major marketing platforms, Amazon, eBay, and so on. I could even sell my own products through companies like eBay and Shopify.
My years of searching eventually paid off when I came across this site called, “The Wealthy Affiliate”.
There are 1,000+ training modules, over 400 hours of live classes, 100,000’s of blog posts/discussions, and over 2.2+ million members.
Weekly Webinar’s Every Friday. Based On Which Country You Live In. Yes this is World Wide
A Webinar an hour-long live class with Jay, (magistudios) our resident expert here at Wealthy Affiliate. He teaches you about new topics each and every week. Topics that are on the leading edge of what is popular and what you “need” to know to grow your skillset, and ultimately your business. An active question and answer period.
Jay actually took an active role in fixing some problems I had on my website. This was done on his own time and at no cost to me. You will never find that kind of support from anywhere.
If you want to learn about email marketing, you can. If you want to learn about local marketing and become an expert in that business model, you can. If you want to drive one or more businesses through Google Ads, you can. If you want to become a Pinterest all-star, you can.

My personal experience with The Wealthy Affiliate
I started way back in December of 2014 but I quit after a month. I wanted one of those other deals that promise to make large sums of money within weeks if not days. After spending a lot of money on several different programs, I found out the hard way that I was actually making the so-called, “Guru’s”, who were selling those false promises a lot of money.
They were actually very good fishermen, they baited their hook and cast their line. How could I go wrong, the cost usually was from 17.00 dollars to 50.00 dollars. Yes, I did grab the bait and I struggled to make these systems work for me. Introduction to up-sales. It seemed that every time the money was going to start rolling in, there was an additional step I needed to take, and yes at an additional cost. The time and money wasted. On many occasions, I had to fight for that 30-day money-back guarantee, many resulting in having to involve the bank and their fraud department.
I am not saying that every online money making program is a fraud, just the ones I encountered. I decided to check out, The Wealthy Affiliate one more time. This was September 2018 and was surprised to see the prices were still the same as they were in 2014. I do believe they have over 2.2 million members from all around the world. Besides their 24/7 site support, there were other members helping you out. I have close to two thousand friends in my network. My own website with the opportunity to create more of my own.
No, I did not make any money in the first week, it took me a few months to start making money. During this time I was building and learning. This of course is determined on how much you put into achieving your goals. I knew nothing about building a website. Nothing about selling items from companies like Amazon, eBay, or anyone else. I sold their product and earned a commission. The more companies I involved myself with and the more of their items I sold the more money I was making. You can also make money by hosting YouTube videos. Gain audiences through social media, the free plugins, and over three thousand themes free or pro themes to choose from.
You are the master of your destiny, check it out. Take it out for a free test drive and you choose. I am not here to sell you anything, I am just here to make you aware of a way to supplement your income, or even do this as a job. The hours are up to you, take control, and become your own boss.
By the way, I will be here for you, and so will other members to make your online experience profitable and answer any questions you have.
Christmas is coming, the online market is constantly expanding. Learn, earn, and be prepared.
