My 2 INCREDIBLE years inside WA By ((Marcus))
wealthy affiliate success tag!
The last 2 years have simply flown by for me at WA. I remember the day I joined VERY well as it was to be my last attempt at making this online dream happen. I’d made sales prior to joining, but nothing consistent. Joining WA was an opportunity for me to go back to school and learn from 2 of the best in the business – Kyle & Carson.
It took me around 11 months of WA education to quit my job…it really should have been a lot quicker. Yeah, I guess I got lazy…maybe even expecting someone to wave a magic wand or something…WRONG! It wasn’t until I started taking action and worked at this like nothing I’ve EVER committed to before that the results started to come in.
By the end of 2007 I’d built up a number of sites targeting specific niches. Initially I would use free methods of promotion until I had a clear idea of what keywords were working the best, and then I would translate those free campaigns into paid campaigns using PPC. That might not be the best way to approach your promotions, but it worked for me and it represented a way to build large campaigns in a safe and cost effective manner.
Throughout 2008 my sites have continued to grow in size and so has my income. I pretty much have system in place that I apply to any niche that I promote to, and it’s simply a matter of letting things run and then acting on the results. Some work, and some DON’T, but that’s something you just have to accept in this game.
Over this last year my earnings from those sites has averaged out at approx $14,000 per month - that's PURE profit. That to me is an ASTONISHING amount of money and I do sometimes have to pinch myself to make sure I’m not dreaming. With a number of additional campaigns building up a head of steam, I anticipate raising that figure to around $30,000 a month profit by the end of 2009.
2 guides that DEFINITELY helped me crack the code over the last 2 years were Who Loves Money and Inside The List. I made a fair bit of fuss about WLM when it was first released as it gave me a whole new perspective on keywords. I used those ideas right away and have continued to do so ever since. As for Inside The List, I don’t know why I left it so late to get involved with email marketing but ITL put 30% on my income almost immediately and it’s probably my favourite marketing method. New members have a great head start by getting those guides free when joining or via the Accreditation courses.
In addition to my niche sites, I also turned my attentions on the WA affiliate program at the end of 2007. I had a number of ideas banging around in my head and I was determined to bring people here to WA and help them succeed in the way I had. I ran some ideas by Kyle & Carson and eventually came up with a number of sites to help me promote WA in 2008. It didn’t take too long before I could see a method that was working well and I decided to share that with the community in my $1k WA Promotions post. Little did I know that just a short while later I would be in the AMAZING position of being qualified for the Vegas trip…in fact it STILL hasn’t sunk in!
Writing this is really making me realise how far I’ve come in such a short space of time. I really hope that you view this post as inspirational in some way, and that you don’t think I’m in any way boasting about my income. I was ready to make this post on my 2-year anniversary (12th November), but kept putting it off because I know some people can take these posts the wrong way. I’m really not like that at all and I hope I haven’t offended anyone at a time when there’s such hardship around the world.
Is there a BIG secret to making this work?
Really, there isn’t. I convinced myself a couple of years ago that this was all one big con, but having done the A-Z I know it’s for real. Don’t ever think that this is going to happen for you without effort because it won’t. I’m living proof that the WA system works so the amount of effort you put in to making it happen for you will determine how successful you become.
To EVERYONE here at WA because you all inspire me in some way. It can be something as simple as a new member expressing their hunger in the Introduction section of the forum, or one of my members sending me an email and telling me they’ve just made another sale. I just love it!
Special thanks to Travis for bringing me here in the first place back in ’06…I owe you BIGTIME dude. Thad – you’ve given me more “aha” moments than any other member here at WA – Thank you!!
And of course not forgetting…
Kyle & Carson!!
Where do I begin?? Thanks first of all for everything you provide for us here at WA, you guys really do have AMAZING vision. On a personal note, you have ALWAYS given me straight answers when I’ve asked you questions in the past and sometimes (alright, most of the time!) that’s what I’ve needed to hear. You both know what I’m all about, and you both know how to press my buttons! In 2 years I’ve paid you guys around $700 to be a member here, and in exchange you’ve shown me how to generate 6 figures per year. THANK YOU SOO MUCH!
I couldn’t possibly sign off without mentioning an EXTREMELY special group of people…my members here at WA. Over the last year I have been VERY fortunate to make many new friends from all corners of the earth. You guys are my online family and I really do try my hardest to help you become successful online at WA. BIG love to ALL of you. I feel extremely privileged to be going on the Vegas trip, and to be in the presence of such powerful marketers like Kyle, Carson, Travis Sago, Thad Roe, and Ryan Moran will be an absolute honour. I PROMISE you that while I’m there I’m going to be working for you guys…I already have a plan of action, and you guys are going to have some VERY special goodies when I return.
So there you have it…that’s what WA has done for me in 2 years and there’s absolutely no reason why anyone else here can’t do the same. Stay focussed on your dream and remind yourself every day why you are here. Don’t allow yourself to get too distracted here at WA…you’re paying $40 a month to learn this trade from 2 of the best marketers in town – Kyle & Carson. NEVER forget that. If they can turn an average guy like me into a successful marketer, you really don’t have any excuses.
The dream will only end if YOU allow it to.

My One-Year Wealthy Affiliate Story By ((cwclem34))
wealthy affiliate success tag!
My name is Chad, and I am an internet marketing-aholic.
Seriously though, I apologize for the long email, but I would like to share my one-year Wealthy Affiliate story and some of my recent success with those new and old to Wealthy Affiliate. I actually debated for a long time whether or not I would, or should, write this post. In the end, I decided that it would be beneficial for those thinking about joining Wealthy Affiliate, those just joining Wealthy Affiliate, or those who have been with Wealthy Affiliate for a while now and who may be struggling or getting frustrated. My hesitancy in writing this post was that I do not want to come across as bragging or that I know more than the next person, because I honestly don't, and still consider myself a very, very beginner, amateur internet marketer. In no particular order, I believe my success has been a combination of luck, hard-work, patience, and research, though I'm leaning toward luck. Without a doubt, though, any success that I've had to date is directly related and should be credited to Wealthy Affiliate and the guys behind it, Kyle and Carson.
For those that don't know me (which is everyone), here is a little bit about myself. I'm a 31-year-old attorney living in Florida, recently married, and even more recently with a little girl on the way. I love to play golf, drink beer, gamble, play poker, watch college football and basketball, and follow the Florida Gators. I'm obsessed with fantasy football, and I'd say overall, I have an obsessive-compulsive personality when it comes to most things I put my mind to.
In any event, I joined Wealthy Affiliate almost 1 year ago. As I write this, I can't even remember how I came to find Wealthy Affiliate, but I'm pretty sure it had something to do with sitting in my office researching something
about some law that I didn't care about. What I can tell you is that prior to joining, I had absolutely no experience with internet/affiliate marketing - didn't even know what it was. I guess you could say I was an internet marketing virgin.
Without writing pages and pages, what I hope this post accomplishes is that it shows everyone here what is possible if you not only trust what is offered to you here by Wealthy Affiliate and Kyle and Carson, but that you actually put into motion the skills you learn. By no means is it easy. Like a lot of us here, I was grabbing ankles after the last main Google slap, and I got very frustrated. I even wrote it off for a couple of weeks. One day, though, I sat down in front of my computer and told myself that failure is not an option and that success is inevitable. I scrapped everything I had done to date and started over - new campaigns, new account, new website, new everything. I think I may have even started using a new computer b/c I thought my old one was bad luck. I don't recommend this.
Bottom line - for a beginner (I still consider myself a beginner), and those more experienced, it is my opinion that you do not need anything else but this website. Internet marketing is ever-changing, something you must keep at daily. I learn something everyday here. I also screw up something everyday. But, you learn, correct your mistakes, and move on. Anyone can do this - but you actually have to do it.
Well, that really is all I wanted to say. Just don't half-ass your approach to this, and expect anything more than half-ass results.
Just so everyone doesn't think I'm full of s&$t, I have posted some of my sales from the last week or so. Again, please, I really do not want everyone to think badly of my posting this, but please use it as inspiration, motivation, etc...
Thanks! I'm glad to be here!
