Why to write a blog?
We are starting from the point, where we want to promote our product, service, or professional skills and qualities. From walking neighbors dog to company merging lawyer services and everything in between.
Best way to send a message about yourself is to create and constantly renew your personal blog, and that is why:
- You will be able to reveal all the expertise you have in given subject at your own space, in the manner you want.
- You will have an info platform, where you can send interested people from your social media channels, so they could get deeper understanding what you can offer
- You will create a generic traffic of a target audience, who is looking for services you are offering.
- You will create a raving fan crowd of your product service, or lifestyle. You will form a community together that has a place to hang out. That will be your place, a small piece of internet.
There is no need to talk a lot why to write a blog. It is much more important to talk HOW to write a blog.
How to write a blog and get paid for it
We decided to write a blog about something we are passionate about. What challenges can we expect at the very start?
- How to create a website?
- Were to host and how to run a website?
- How to create content?
- What content generates traffic?
- What content may bring money?
- How to earn from blogging in general?
So many issues to solve and so many tasks to accomplish. It feels overwhelming at the start, and that is OK. Creating a good content on the web so people come and read it with pleasure is not an easy task, but it is achievable for everyone. For everyone who is ready to put a decent amount of work, energy and creativity in to it.
The good news is that all the necessary knowledge you need for it, you can receive in one place, without googling every component separately. You do not even know what to google at the start, admit it.
I present you a platform of internet marketers, who offers their goods and services through blogging, and they are doing it with class. This is the first internet source who gave me so deep knowledge about the subject. This is the first internet platform who made me to go so far in to my new occupation, this is the first internet community, who gave so much support. Honestly, this is the first payed internet service, that I payed money. Never regretted about that.

Other 4 stages are available for premium members only and there is a monthly fee for it, but even if you are not ready to become a premium member, you will be taught basics of creating money earning blog. This is more than enough to join the program to my mind.
There is also hundreds of training videos on pretty much any internet marketing topic. Just look to main categories:
There are hundreds of training videos after any of those main categories you will not find in YouTube, I may assure you, I was looking for it many times before. All I find was promotional vids that had only a small fraction of info I needed.
You can also use search engine to find video tutorials in the database under your request. Number of video trainings is increasing every day, as they are created by experienced community members. There is a motivational system in the site, that encourages to create a quality content.
Third important feature of Wealth affiliate, is community. Many members have their internal blogs, where they write from technical articles to lifestyle posts. You may subscribe to the authors you are interested in and have this info in your news feed.
I was skeptical to name it as a benefit, but after a while I found, that I get lots of useful info in the marketing areas I am weak. I also find some similar soles in this blogging sphere. It is good to feel yourself not alone with your problems. It motivates along the way.

Sounds good? Sounds too good to be true? If it sounds too good to be true, a natural question emerges- Maybe it’s a scam
Is WA a scam?
hile choosing a training online it is important not to waste time and especially money on scammers.
I have no problem to spend some bucks online for good services, but I faced so many spamy or barely legit products online that I started to judge negatively everything online until it was proven opposite.
Wealthy affiliate had to go through my filter as well. Believe me, I made pretty broad research before I payed 19 dollars for trial month.
I came up with a list of signs, that indicate that service is a scam. I checked WA accordingly, and here is the result:
It is definitely a scam, if you face the following:
- You can browse a landing page only, before you pay money.
In WA case, you get loads of free stuff. In fact, you may stay on free version for all your life and benefit from it greatly.
- They promise loads of money almost instantly for pretty much non work done.
No one ever promise easy money on WA ever. Everyone who hangs around in the community for some time knows- you have to put lots of sweat and creativity before you may start at least to expect some revenue. Many people quit in the middle and never see a buck. Despite that I am sure they benefit from WA by gaining knowledge and experience on internet marketing.
- They do not tell exactly what kind of work is required to be done from your side
Believe me not, you are told what you are going to do. You going to dig for numerous keywords of your niche, you will be building sites on your own and running them. You will be putting time and effort before you see your shiny diamond. Be sure there are loads of work to do. Just create a free account and check the free membership workload. Be sure that premium members are granted of 100 times more work.
- They offer to do work they are going to pay for AFTER you pay the starting fee. Often case with research or data entry jobs.
You do not have to pay a penny if you do not want to. You pay for premium membership, that does not guarantee any revenue at all. It’s for being a part of community and gaining access to premium training courses.
- Shady description of training they offer for money. Description is made from testimonials based on emotion with no technical data.
I do not put here testimonials on purpose so it would not look like a scam. Besides, each success story is different and unique. Yours will be also- be sure of this. There is all the info what WA is offering in this article and on the WEALTHY AFFILIATE itself. Honesty is a main weapon against scammers on the net. WA is with all guns blazing on this one.
None of those features exists on WA as you see. If you still have any doubts, please, be so kind and leave a comment on that. It is so important for me to know WHY someone my still think, that WA is a scamy deal.
Benefit of WA that no one talks about
You can find hundreds if not thousands of WA reviews on the net. Absolute majority are super positive. I did not find a negative one at least. Everyone points in to benefits that you can weight by numbers, or any other metrics.
There is benefit that I experienced after I joined the community, but never read on reviews. All the mechanics of WA forces you slowly but surely to move forward. That is so important not to quit at some point, and WA performs on that perfectly. I have to confess, I am a huge procrastinator. Everybody is, you may say. I am a special case, I would answer. At least I feel so.
Being a part of WA community I started to move forward every day, every weak. Its coded in their training programs. Community approach is positive, you want to spend some time there, and you do not feel after that, how you wrote another osom post.
While making money online, you need lots of patients and consistency. Her people fail most to my mind. WA makes great job, on making you to go forward, and that is the secret ingredient, they add in their product for our success.
If you are ready to try WA out, and you like what I do on this blog, please, be sure you go to WA site through my link in this page to register. In that case I will lead you through first stages of training personally. You will have some extra tips and support, so you can start more comfortably.
