SO HOW CAN YOU GET FREE TRAINING TO BUILD A BUSINESS ONLINE?
Where do you start if you want to build your own online business? If you are like me you look online. Wow, so much information and so many scams and how can you tell which sites are legit! It all comes down to trial and error for some or you can take advice from someone already doing the whole online thing and learn from them.
My number one recommendation has got to be Wealthy Affiliate. Now I know I have done a review of WA on this site already. But! And this is a big but, since this time I have had the time to really have a dig around this site, use the tools and undertaken some of the training myself.
After writing the aforementioned review I decided to spend some time really going over the site and quickly became a premium member. This site got me so excited and the thirst I had for drinking in all the training, all the knowledge from other community members and putting it into action actually had me taking time off from my full-time job (this was actually unpaid leave, I didn’t just phone in sick).
You see I plan to give up working for someone else by the end of the summer and become my own full-time boss. When I got inside this site I knew that I was going to succeed because I had everything I needed to succeed right in front of me. All I had to do was put in the work, and in a short time it was certainly paying off. This is why it is my #1 recommendation for anyone wanting to earn money online and have their own business.
And WOW this is everything you need to build your OWN business. Unless you go premium, which I highly recommend then you will need a very small amount of cash each month.
I am going to go through what is all offered within WA right here on this post. If you don’t want to read on but want to jump right on over to the WA site to see what has got me this excited click here.
So what is Wealthy Affiliate?
Wealthy Affiliate is an entrepreneur’s dream platform. It was founded back in 2005 when two young men called Kyle and Carson decided to build a platform that would allow others to do what they themselves had become successful in doing. That was affiliate marketing online and through websites.
They had both struggled a bit while getting their own online businesses up and running and at times report it was way less than easy. But together they wanted to build a platform for others to build their own business much in the way they had but to really make it a much simpler and stress-free process.
And yes they have succeeded in doing so. With over a million entrepreneurs having already used this system and with the continuing evolution of the platform it remains the no 1 spot for budding affiliate marketers to go and learn and create.
The site has over 750+ training updates per year and has had over 155 system updates in the past year. It is forever growing and evolving so you get the very best website builder, hosting, training, community and best of all success.
So what’s on offer….
Free or Premium Membership
You can join Wealthy Affiliate for free. This is ideal if you just want to see what all the fuss is about or to really check it out before laying out money. This site is totally transparent in the way it does business and I love that.
No hidden extra’s and they are so confident about what they do they leave the door open and the decision to you whether you go premium or not.
So what’s the difference between FREE and PREMIUM, see the chart below to find out.
As you can see you get a lot for your buck with premium. If you think what you would pay to go to an evening class or even study this business full time you would be way more expensive. The best thing is here you don’t just have a few lecturers but 1000’s, all with their own little pockets of knowledge and willing to share. Your knowledge base will grow to be diverse and this will and can be one of the steepest learning curves of your life so far. All achieved with a fantastic support network
The Wealthy Affiliate Community
One thing that makes Wealthy Affiliate stand out is the community it has. Community members come from around the world with varying degrees of knowledge and know-how on marketing. You can follow members, read their blog posts – some of which is additional training and ask questions. There are thousands of community members to help you out if you are stuck or struggling with something. Whether you need a friendly ear or a kick up the butt there will always be someone there willing to give you what you need.
The certification training takes a more in-depth look at building your website and business. You can work through each course at your own pace. For some of the tasks, you are asked to share some of your work for others to give feedback or comment on. This is a great way for you to get constructive criticism from fellow affiliate marketers to allow you to make any adjustments needed for your site to grow and expand. By having this training and feedback opportunity it allows more knowledgeable marketers to help guide and coach you so you can get it right and start earning online.
So what you are really able to do by following the training is EARN WHILE YOU LEARN. So there is no need for you to complete all the training before getting your business up and running.
This is where you get to learn what is needed to become an affiliate marketer. This has 7 phases with each phase broken down into smaller segments for you to work your way through. I have included below the outline for phase 1 of affiliate boot camp so you can see how much value you will get through this training. Remember this is just one phase of 7
Weekly Webinars with Jay
Now, this is only available to premium members. This is a weekly webinar hosted by Jay the chief trainer. Every week Jay hosts a live training webinar or a certain topic. You are invited each week to sign up for the training but you can also catch up with this on replay. Replay is normally available within 24 hours of the training going live.
These are great as not only is it an interactive live webinar each week there is also a live Q&A session at the end of each training session. These webinars normally last around an hour. You can also catch up on some of the previous webinars that you may have missed. So not only does your premium membership allow you access from when you join but also a back catalogue of training that you would never have known about.
I think that pretty awesome considering you weren’t even a paying member when they were produced. I hope by now you are really beginning to see the value of this platform.
SiteRubix is where the magic happens so to speak. This is accessible from the WA dashboard and is where you go to create and manage your websites. You are able to get free or buy your domain names, build your website, choose your themes, add plugins, create and publish content for your site and get comments and feedback from community members once you are ready to do so.
Everything is covered in the training so you won’t be left stumbling around in the dark but rather gently guided and shown how to create something special.
SiteRubix will host 2 websites on free membership and up to 50 for premium members. All the hosting and security is done for you.

Jaaxy is the ultimate keyword research tool and will quickly become one of your best friends once you start creating content. Again this is accessible from the WA dashboard. Keywords are what help you get ranked within the search engines online.

Using Jaaxy is also covered in your training and again you can search for further training within the community blogs.

So as you can see there is a lot going on within the Wealthy Affiliate platform. For me, I think it is best to go premium as you get not just a lot more value but HUGE amounts of AMAZING value. My view is with all the extra training an expertise you will have access to the sooner that you are going to be earning online and this will cover the costs.
But, if you are unable to go premium start on a free membership and use that first week to get the most out of it. Read other peoples blogs and try to visit their sites and really get familiar with the world of affiliate marketing.
Good Luck on your future ventures whatever they may be.
