Hi and thanks for visiting my site today. I wanted to create this page for 2 reasons. Firstly because it is an opportunity to let you know more about me, and my journey in the world of online business through creating and owning my very own blog style website.
And second, it is a chance for me to share with other people who want to create a way to earn an extra income or potentially replace their daily grind working for other people.
Remember it is not just about money, have you ever wished you had more time to spend with your family, to travel or do the things that make YOU happy? Well when you have own your own online business, it is up to you how much of your time you put into it, and when you do it.
It could be that like me you do this between working my full time job and looking after my kids when my wife is at work part time ( I have some late nights at times lol ). Or maybe you are a stay at home mum or dad and want to do this in your spare time. Like I said, it’s YOUR choice if it’s your business.
So why an online business? What made me join the world of online entrepreneurs and independent bloggers? Well I went into full time employment at 17, for a large retail chain, that I still work for today. I have now climbed the ladder somewhat and earn an ok wage for what I do, I felt unfulfilled in my job.
Why? Probably for the same reasons many of you do in your jobs. Having to get up and put large amounts of mental and/or physical energy to achieve someone else’s goals, rather than my own. When you work for someone else you are obligated to do as they reasonably ask you to do, in line to achieve your job role, that’s fair enough as you are taking the company’s money right?
And we cannot forget time, the freedom that we give up to work the daily or nightly grind time and again. Wouldn’t you want the freedom an extra source of income could provide? Right a no brainer!
Sadly you won’t always get on with your boss or colleagues, you might be over worked and in these tough times, underpaid. The last point is a real sore one for most people, after all would you not want to earn more to benefit your own life or your families lives?
And can you imagine what a difference an extra source of income would make to your household? And what if you could earn enough to reduce your hours at work? Or live the dream and actually create a full time income from your own online business?
Sure you would, so in the pursuit of building a better life for myself and my family, I decided to create a website and start blogging. I took my first steps into the very large world of affiliate marketing, although to be fair their are more ways to make money from a website than affiliate marketing, it is easily the most popular and actually easier than you think IF you have the right support, guidance and training available to you.
Well it’s fair to say I knew little to nothing about how to make or use a WordPress style blog site to make money, and even less about affiliate marketing. I did however always want to find a way to make money online, and after wasting a lot of time and effort on various different sites, I came across WEALTHYAFFILIATE.COM.
They are a platform that has over a million members at various different stages of their own journey of creating an income online. The community is interactive so their is an important and incredibly helpful social element to the platform. But that’s an added benefit.
The main reasons to join wealthy Affiliate are as follows. You pick what your niche will be, (the subject your site will be about), and the website theme, which is the basic layout of your site, then they automatically put that layout together for you! It will look like a blank canvas at first as you will then need to put your content into it.
And that is the next point, they will provide you with incredible detailed tutorials to guide you spent by step in turning your site into a fully functional blog style website. And best of all unlike so many other platforms that promise you so much and fall short of your expectations, Wealthy Affiliate is FREE to join.
Which means you can see all the features on offer for yourself before deciding if you want to continue with them going forward! There are 2 packages to choose from, the free one and the premium membership. Now to get the most from this platform I would advise that you go premium once you make up your mind to pursue affiliate marketing and owning a website to improve your life.
But the point I’m making is, there are no upsells here. You can stay a free member for as long as you want, until you decide otherwise, their is no auto premium scam where you stay a free member and then after 30 days you are being billed. Nothing like that. But we will come to more on pricing in a bit. Let me tell a some more about who Wealthy Affiliate are and what you get from joining them.
So let’s be clear on a couple of really important points. When Wealthy Affiliate help you put together your site, it is YOU that will own it. You will be guided in how to purchase a domain name for your site and it is legally yours.
Included in the cost of membership to Wealthy Affiliate is web hosting, which any site owner has to have in order to put your website online. Then you get all these features on top. Please see the chart below to understand what you get for both the free and premium memberships.
If you serious about making money online, you need to understand that you absolutely can. The Wealthy Affiliate platform will give you all you need to succeed and more, BUT you need to put in the effort and the work to make it a success.
This is not a get rich quick scheme, because those don’t exist, they are scams. If you want to be successful at anything you will need to be willing to invest the time and effort to do it. That’s the reality.
Any business will require an investment, and I have never seen a platform like this that offers you so many features for such a reasonable price. And like I said you can join free and explore the Wealthy Affiliate platform and see for yourself what it could offer you and if it is right for you to join and invest your time and money.
Personally I love the fact that I now can start and own upto 50 websites if I had a mind to and all for the same monthly cost, in fact I could go yearly and save about 40% too.
WealthyAffiliate.com is a web hosting platform that helps build, train and coach you in every step of your journey into the world of online affiliate marketing business. They offer site security, amazing tech support, constantly updating training and live video classes private access to be able to message the site owners, website backup and so many more brilliant features.
I am just your average family man with a full time job and 2 kids, but I fit my efforts on this site, which the first I have made, and I will be making more in the future for sure using the Wealthy Affiliate platform, around my job and my family commitments.
And isn’t that such a key point? I mean so many people dream of making a beneficial change to their lives but have the fear of changing their job or worry about not being able to fit in the time in order to do it.
Well when you OWN your very own website, you choose how much time you put into it and when. You do whatever suits your lifestyle commitments.
And THAT is why I chose WEALTHYAFFILIATE.COM to go with. Because I have trust and belief in finally having found a legitimate platform to help me improve my income and life for myself and my family. To build a better future for my kids.
So how am I getting on since joining Wealthy Affiliate? Well I joined in June this year, and in just 2 months look at my site, it is fully functional with growing content and useful topics to help people, which is key to driving traffic and visitors to any site. I have joined several affiliate programs so I can help promote their products on my site and earn a percentage of any sales they make, if I direct traffic to them.
I only give honest and accurate reviews and advice and I am happy with what I have achieved so far. It will take time to create a steady stream of income online and I am, like I said not here to promote some get rich quick nonsense. As I say, that just doesn’t exist and if anyone tells you otherwise, walk away from them because they either don’t know what they are talking about or they are a scam.
I am also slowly but surely building up my online presence through social media and other key marketing skills that are taught to me by this amazing platform I have joined. People are visiting my site and reading my content on my site, and people are clicking the links or ads and seeing just what it is I am talking about or reviewing.
I will be successful because I believe in myself AND I now finally have the support and coaching I needed to get me on my way. The question you need to ask yourself is, does this sound like something YOU would be interested in.
OK so now you know a little bit about me and why I started my site, which as you can see is a site about parenting and baby’s. I know it’s not as common to find a site like this written from dads point of view right? Well I love my kids and my family is the world to me.
So having 2 boys of 5 and 1 years old, I like to think I know a thing or two about what I blog about. I do my research on my topics and product reviews and am personally gaining a sense of satisfaction about what I’m doing with my site.
So is this something you think you like to do? Would having a business that is flexible to your needs and commitments, that you could make an extra income from be of benefit to you? Or would you simply like to know more?
Well if the answer is yes then simply click on any of the links on this page to be taken through to the main WEALTHY AFFILIATE site and create your FREE account. With no hidden obligations, you can view the platform for yourself, view all the features on offer and decide for yourself if what I have said in this page is accurate or not.
You make the decision for yourself. See if you want to be one of the many people from all walks of life that has decided to take that first step into the world of owning an online business and make a change to benefit your life.
I have, I decided to stop thinking about doing something or dreaming about it, and actually took ACTION to do it. The rest is upto you. Either way I hope you have a better understanding of why my site exists and I hope you will take a little time to review the rest of my site if it interests you.
