Today I want to talk to you about how to start an online business with no knowledge at all. Even if you don’t have any experience with how an online business works. I started out in 2004, researching internet marketing because I could see the power of the internet, but it took me three years to get my first money-making website up. Now, the biggest reason it took me so long was that I didn’t have a plan, and I was working totally blind. I needed a step-by-step guide to building my online business.
I could see the power of the Internet!
So I was researching how to make money on the internet to try and find out how I could make an income online. And I could see the potential, especially when broadband came out. It opened up huge opportunities, but I didn’t know how to put it into action. So I was buying into different all different sorts of scam products.
Some of the products I purchased were okay, to be fair, but I learnt the slow way. Now, this platform here, the Wealthy Affiliate platform, teaches you the correct and right way to start an online business. Many people here came to the platform with no knowledge whatsoever and are now highly successful. I was fortunate as I was already making money online when I joined Wealthy Affiliate. But at the same time, I still liked the idea of being around like-minded people, having up-to-date training, and being able to ask a question if I need to.
It All Started In 2005
So, Wealthy Affiliate was started in 2005, 17 years ago, by Kyle and his business partner Carson. They are both very active on the platform. As you can see, they are following 2.2 million people. So, in other words, that means there are around about 2.2 million people who have signed up for Wealthy Affiliate. Now, I do appreciate that they are not all active; however, many active people and members are joining all the time.
An Online Business Is The Cheapest Start-Up You Can Find
Some people come and then they leave, maybe, perhaps, it doesn’t suit them. And to be fair, it does take time to start an online business and time and patience. in fact, I just said it takes money to start an online business what I meant to say is, as far as I know, an online business is the cheapest business that you can start. I have an offline business and an online business. An online business is much cheaper to start and has huge potential. So let’s see what Wealthy Affiliate offers.
Multiple Video Training Modules
So here you can see we have various courses; you have everything you need to start an online business. Keywords, niche market research, getting started, which is where everyone should go when they first arrive here. The affiliate training program, and much more. So let’s click on the training tab here and let’s look at the Getting Started course. So I have already carried out this course, but, basically, it’s written out in text; you can also see the video here. Most members prefer the videos, but it’s also good to have the lessons written out in text format.
At the end of each video training module, it gives you tasks to complete. So, first of all, watch the walkthrough video of Wealthy Affiliate, complete the account setup process on your profile page, etc. And then read the story about the platform and learn about the free domain and the premium upgrade offer. Once you have finished the first lesson, you can go to the next lesson and so forth. You can complete the training here, tick off what you’ve done, and then go to the next stage. It’s important not to miss out on any of the training. Some people think they can jump the training, but I can guarantee that it’s being put together carefully and thoughtfully. It’s continually being updated, so you don’t want to miss anything out.
There’s no quick way to make money online, but there’s a process that works if you’re willing to take action. So moving on here, we have various classes on, on the classes tab here.
So if you go here, you can see all the premium plus courses. You can see all the courses in one place first volume have the starter courses, which are free. There are four starter courses. I always recommend people just try the platform before they pay any money. I started for free, but I literally upgraded immediately as I could see the huge potential and the benefits. It is good to check out reviews, I had seen the reviews and having been working online for some time I knew what to look for. I have now been a member of the Wealthy Affiliate platform for almost 8 years. You can see all the premium courses here, and then here you can see there is Premium plus.
Three Levels Of Membership
So there are three levels of training, the starter membership which I recommend just to see if you like the platform. Then there is the premium membership and finally the premium plus membership. To be fair, I’m a Premium Plus member, but with the standard premium membership, there is more than enough training to get started. You don’t need the Premium Plus, although I would definitely recommend it if you can afford it. There really is some fantastic training on the platform. I don’t get a chance to listen to or watch all the training, but the great thing is that you can access the training at any time.
Searching Here For Any Training
You can search for anything you want and, and find literally anything you want to do with internet marketing up here in the search box.
A Few Success Stories
So moving on now, let’s go to a few success stories. Robert’s been on the Wealthy Affiliate platform for seven years now. Robert has been highly successful due to being focused, following the training, and taking action.
If we go here, you can see a few blog posts here, he’s he has written several blog posts. He is making over $1000 a month with just one program. That is certainly crazy growth! He has been a member of Wealthy Affiliate for seven years.
So Robert is now highly successful, however, I remember when he first joined Wealthy Affiliate, he had no knowledge, but he kept working and going through the training and this is what he’s built up. Did you know that anyone can do this, but it does take work.
So Let’s Go To The Next Success Story
Eric also came here with no, knowledge of internet marketing, but now he regularly travels and he actually creates some of the classes. Eric joined Wealthy Affiliate five years ago, with no knowledge whatsoever of affiliate marketing. Within a couple of years, Eric is travelling the world due to the success of his online business.
As I mentioned earlier, Wealthy Affiliate has many training modules. Some of the training is created by the members of Wealthy Affiliate who have seen huge success. Eric is one of the members that you will often see carrying out the premium plus classes.
The main reason for Eric’s success is the fact that he went through the training step-by-step. Not only did he go through the training, but he also took action at every available opportunity. This process can be repeated with any niche, the main thing is that you are consistent and go through the training and take action!
Another Success Story
The final successful member that we will look at today is Jerry. He is not quite so active on the platform now as he is busy with his own platform!
Jerry joined in 2016 and worked really hard going through the training modules. Originally he had a part-time job, but he spent the rest of his time working on his online business and going through the training step-by-step.
As you can see in this blog post he made $100,000 in one week. He literally started his own affiliate marketing platform, but wrote the course in Mandarin. In four hours, he had made $40,000, that’s really quite an achievement.
Once again, Jerry was someone who took action, in fact, he took absolutely massive action! Can you imagine what would have happened if he hadn’t of taken any action? This is what happens when we take action, we can literally turn our life around, just like Jerry has.
As I often say; the power of the Internet never fails to amaze me.
If you take a look at the banner below, you can see the various benefits of the starter and premium membership. As I mentioned earlier, the premium membership is more than adequate for everyone to get started and be successful. The premium membership just takes you deeper, it is definitely worth it if you can afford it, especially with the Black Friday offers coming up.
The starter membership gives you one website. The premium gives you five websites and the premium plus if you up to 10 websites. For most people, five websites is more than enough.
Something that should have mentioned is that Wealthy Affiliate shows you how to put up a website up in just 30 seconds. I do have my own video on the subject which you can see here.
They also have their own Amazon hosting, so there is no need to pay for hosting or any extras. At Wealthy Affiliate you have everything you need to start an online business. They also have site support, so if you have any issues with your website, contact site support and they will deal with it.
The premium Wealthy Affiliate membership is $49 per month plus one free domain.
And the premium plus membership is $99 per month +2 free domains.
Don’t forget that there are special Black Friday offers coming up. The Black Friday offers are giving up to $689 off the standard price! It’s definitely worth looking out for
Ask a question
One of the many things that I like about Wealthy Affiliate is the fact that you can ask the question. As you can see I have asked 247 questions in almost 8 years. There are no limitations on the amount of questions you can ask. You can even ask 247 questions in one day!
Due to the large size of the community, questions are normally answered within minutes. By having multiple people answer questions, you can normally find some excellent answers.
In the video above you can see some of the questions that I have asked over the years. For example, the other day asked questions about a particular type of software that members use. I was already using the particular software, but I was interested to see what other members were using.
