I joined Wealthy Affiliate sometime in 2017 while working on a campaign
for some health products that I was promoting at the time.
I clicked on an advertisement in a traffic exchange and thought it looked
interesting, signed up for the free version then moved on to things at hand.
While fooling around with Shopify, well more than fooling around, the
health site that I had a made a few bucks on was going south and I was
wanting to open a store on Facebook’s Shopify Platform.
Working 10 to 12 hours a day on my regular job did not leave a lot of time to
sit in front of my laptop. I didn’t find Shopify that user-friendly, at least not
for me, but kept plugging along every chance that I had.
Not many of those chances came around.
Shopify’s support was not getting the job done for me but thinking back I
am sure the time I had to spend on it, my patience, and my skill set was
really the problem.
One day I was trying to change some things in my Shopify
store and kept getting the message that I couldn’t do that, got
fed up with it and just canceled my account and said out loud to
myself,” Well I can do this,” and did….LOL.
Then I recalled that advertisement that I had clicked on that was called
Wealthy Affiliate and remembered something about free training…

First Month at Wealthy Affiliate
What I Noticed First
The first thing that I noticed was that numerous people or members of
Wealthy Affiliate were welcoming me to the site and giving me suggestions
right out of the chute.
There was one point they were all making and that was to get into the
training modules and get started.
The Free Website
I was able to get my first free website up in a few minutes but that was just
It took me several days to learn how to navigate the system and then
populate it and arrange it the way that I wanted it to look.
I was going back and forth between the training videos and the Website
Second Month At Wealthy Affiliate
My First Referrals
I have a total of seven referrals and received my first premium referral my
second month as a premium member in WA.
I am not sure if it came from my promoting WA in the traffic exchanges or
I do know it did not come from the site that I built at WA as it was not
complete and had not indexed at that time.
I am working on my third blog and have 1 blog post and one static page
indexed in Google.
I have learned more in the past two months than I have learned in the past
9 years of trying to figure out this online marketing on my own.
Better late than never.
If anyone is thinking about a premium online marketing suite, I would
strongly suggest for you to join Wealthy Affiliate as a free member and take
a look around. The free training would be well worth your time.
As a bonus, you are going to get personal and private access to me! If you
ever have a question or need help with your campaigns, I will be there.
If anyone has any questions or comments about Wealthy Affiliate of just Affiliate
Marketing in general, please do not hesitate to leave them in the comments
I will get back to you as soon as possible.
All The Best
