Does Wealthy Affiliate Work? In this article I am going to give you an overview for you to decide if wealthy affiliate works for you or not.

First off having been a wealthy affiliate member for about a year I can tell you that it is not a scam. I am no longer a member due to that fact that you can really find the stuff for free if you look hard enough. But that is not the real reason.

If you decide to join they give you all the tools to succeed.

Including free hosting to host your websites. But here is where I have a problem. You are going to start from scratch in building your sites. In doing this you will need to produce content for your sites. This is all well and good but just because you have a site full with content and you are ranking on page one for the search engines does not mean you are going to make sales.

You still need to learn how to market your site too. (get traffic to it).

Wealthy affiliate stresses that you need to put content on your sites not only content but a lot of it. Not only do you need content but you need to do good keyword research to get ranked in the search engines.
For a beginner I this is too much for them to grasp and this process takes a long time. Time is money right?

So how would I do it to make things easier?

I would do this in three steps:

  1. Build myself a squeeze page - With a squeeze page your whole purpose is to collect a persons e-mail and name in order for you to build a subscribers list.

    You are giving something away of value for free in exchange for their name and e-mail.
  2. Drive Traffic to that squeeze page - Now you are going to drive targeted traffic to that squeeze page. The best way to do this is drive paid traffic to this site.
    Keep in mind you can use free methods but this will take a long time. I would rather find out if my site converts with paid traffic first than spend 3-6 months with free methods. This is just wasted time.
  3. Concentrate On Conversions - This step will take some time as you will need to build a relationship with your subscribers plus tweet your sales funnel.

    I would also like to add that you will need an auto responder for your sales funnel.

This is how I would start out building an online business. Of course there are many ways that you can make money online but doing it this way you are building leverage.

In building a list you will be able to sell to your subscribers over and over again in the future.
