If you have been toying with the idea of starting an online business, there are plenty of resources online that can help you get rolling.
It is however super important to outsource all your tools and resources in one central location.
I would like to believe you are here because you are looking for knowledge that will help you to grow and succeed as an online business owner.
If that’s you, let’s just get down to business and allow me to be your guide as I take you through the process of setting up your first WordPress website.
Believe me you. It’s a lot easier than you might imagine it to be.
My name is Leonard and it’s nice to connect with you. I am a graphic and web designer but affiliate marketing is something I truly enjoy.
Let’s talk about affiliate marketing and why it’s a super cool online business model to get into.
What is affiliate marketing?
Wikipedia defines affiliate marketing as a type of performance-based marketing in which a business rewards one or more affiliates for each visitor or customer brought by the affiliate’s own marketing efforts.
Research indicates that 81% of all online shoppers research a product or service before making a purchasing decision. With millions of people around the world buying products online, there is massive potential for one to make money as an affiliate marketer.
Stick around with me to the end, I will show how you can make some good bank from the comfort of your own home by selling products online for a commission.
To go back on the 4 simple steps, implementing them is easy but I must emphasize. You will be a busy bee for the foreseeable future. The reward is however what makes it all worth it.
Approach your business with the right mindset
Going into affiliate marketing with the right mindset will go a long way into determining your success.
It is a business and like all businesses, it takes time to grow. It’s a journey of learning and you are not going to be getting results within a short period of time. A website needs to build some online authority for one to start seeing results.
Wow! Now that we have gotten that out of the way, let’s get into the fun part.
Get access to the right tools and training
To succeed in affiliate marketing, you need to plug into some good tools and resources.
Just so you know, you don’t need to be an online tech guru to learn how to build websites.
When I first started I had very little knowledge of how to build a website. I dug into the training bit by bit and finally managed to learn the ropes of how to go about setting up a WordPress website.
I have managed to diversify my knowledge and I also build websites for local clients. Everything I have learned has come from this awesome online education platform called Wealthy Affiliate.
What makes the program excel and stand out from the rest of the crowd is because it is a one-stop-shop for all your online campaigns. You get hosting, domain registration, affiliate training, community support, etc.
Every aspect of training is located right there, and it continues to be updated pretty much on a daily basis.
You too can have a website of your own just like this one and I will be quite happy to personally guide you on how I went about it.
Want to give it a shot. Go for it!
Being with the right tribe helps
One of the easiest ways to learn new stuff is by following in the footsteps of those who have been through what you are about to embark on. A great deal of the things I have learned has come from people I interact with regularly within the training platform.
The folks within the WA platform come from all walks of life. They are… hands down the most supportive online community you will ever come across. When you share and leverage the knowledge of others, it becomes a whole lot easier to navigate your way around.
Wealthy Affiliate was started in 2006 and has continuously endeavored to help affiliates access the latest buzz in the world of online marketing. The reason why I believe it’s different from all the numerous training platforms out there is that the core training is targeted towards building a business that is focused on your passion. That is often emphasized so, really dig deep and find what you are really passionate about. It’s your ticket to freedom!!
