  2. Hey DLansing,

    I have to compliment you on your writing abilities!

    It’s very easy to read and comprehend!

    I wonder if you had any writing experience beforehand?

    I have to agree with you warning people of all the programs that want to, as you so nicely described, “milk the money out of you” 😉

    I myself am a member of WA, and had to go through a ot of nonsense programs and websites before I found the right place!

    Keep up the good work educating people!

    Cheers, Maarten

    • Hi Maarten, thanks for complimenting on my writing abilities, lol! I must admit that I don’t really have any experience writing before this. I only started writing more when I started this blog. When I write about things that I am interested about, I guess it makes it much easier for me to write freely. Yeah, just like, I also have to go to all kinds gimmicks or worse scams before I eventually found WA. The Starter Free Trial was all the impetus and confidence I need to know, that Wealthy Affiliate is the real deal.

  3. Your article Where to Learn Online Marketing is very useful and you give a nice example of a platform for learning online marketing, and this is Wealthy Affiliate.

    You rightly point out interactive discussion and access to experts through private communication which is available at Wealthy Affiliate. This is something that cannot be paid, this is essential for everybody who starts online business. There are so many things and details to learn, and this is possible only through communications with other members. Thank you for posting this text.

    • Hi Jovo, yes interactive discussion is what makes learning a lot more fun because there is a lot of exchanging and sharing of ideas. This method is so powerful and makes for a very lively and interesting learning experience. The fact that you have access to the experts through private communication, means you get to earn their secret to success in more details, and provide you insights on how their build their online business on a personal level. That alone is simply priceless in my opinion.

  5. Hi great article,
    I ended up on your page today because I was looking for information on email marketing. I see you have covered it briefly here and I was owndering if you could help me further.
    Are there any free options/tools out there for email marketing and will this Wealthy Affiliate be able to help me in any way?

    • Hi Chris, for the time being I’m not an authority yet in email marketing. I am gradually getting ther though. Wealthy Affiliate(WA) certainly has an extensive lesson on email marketing but I have yet to cover because I need to learn other more important lessons. Here is a WA link for the Introduction to Email Marketing just for you. It may be an introduction, but a comprehensive one at that.

  6. Well written article and you have mentioned all the great features that led me to become a member of the Wealthy Affiliate community. The training is so extensive and the knowledge you gain from other members as part of the Wealthy Affiliate support network, it feels like you will never stop learning as new up to date stuff is introduced. I did my research and was fortunate enough to stumble upon a WA review and subsequently joined their community before, as you put it, being “milked” by one of the other programs out there. Nice job and thanks for sharing.

    • Hey no problem Neil, thanks for stopping by my site. Just like you, I feel fortunate as well to be able to find Wealthy Affiliate eventually in my search for the best and most trustworthy online training programs around. Best of success to you Neil 😉

  7. You know, it seems that the internet based market won’t be going anywhere anytime soon. Not only is the online market growing constantly, but people also increasingly look to the web to find information concerning potential purchases. This seems to be a good business to get into, and I’m glad that there is a place where people can go to learn how to succeed in this business.

    • You’re right Paul, internet based market is not going anywhere and it is just going to get bigger and better. It is high time to join in and there is no better place to learn than Wealthy Affiliate in my opinion.

  8. Online marketing allowed me the freedom to pursue my passion and quit my 9-5 job. I am able to work at the comforts of my home without experiencig the hassles of traffic and waking up early in the morning. I am also more creative now that Im an online entrepreneur. Through this I am able to work smart and not to work hard back when Im working in the company.

    • Great to hear that online marketing provides you the freedom to pursue your passion and quit your day job. At the end of the day, that is what most people are looking for. To be doing what they are passionate about 🙂 Thanks for your feedback Keye.

  9. Dlansing,

As with many common terms that get used by so many people, they often mean different things to different people. Keeping the terminology straight is important because utilizing each of them together will help a business improve it’s overall marketing strategy. I am curious about your reference to Wealthy Affiliate. I am a firm believer that innovation is a critical factor to being successful online given there is so much competition.

  11. Hey Dominic, I agree that there are many services out there to choose from, but people gotta consider, does the service have the best interest in the consumer?

    When people want to learn about internet marketing, the cost shouldn’t put anyone in the poor house. I also believe that learning how to do IM properly will only help someone advance a lot faster.

    A community like WA is great. There are so many people willing to help one another and that in itself is priceless. I

    What is the best value do you consider WA provides? Thanks!

Wealthy Affiliate has so many valuable things to offer here, but if I have to choose one, I think it would be the genuinely supportive community of Wealthy Affiliate that are so willing to help and see you succeed!

  12. Hi DLansing,

    I’m a WA member and it seems that WA uses more on the search engine optimization approach. I’m still feel rather gray on this area as i’m not sure how do i go about using the keywords which i have found in jaxxy to get my website indexed in google. My website is still nowhere to be found on the search engine. Not sure if i have miss a step or what necessary action to be taken. Was wondering if you are able to tell me more on this SEO portion. Thanks!


    • Hi Eunice, it is great to see a fellow WA member here. I can understand that you are still gray on the SEO matter. It takes time for most people to understand the concept of having good SEO. Even if you have a good grasp on it, doesn’t mean you can get good ranking right away. Unless you‘re doing paid traffics, to get naturally good ranking will take a bit of time. That is why it is really important to know the “low hanging fruit” keyword techniques. The technique also known as the long tail keyword search technique and I have written about that topic here. As a WA member, my keyword search tool of choice is none other than Jaaxy, and I really recommend you to make use of that powerful tool on your disposal.

      Now, keyword research is just one of the many components of having good SEO for your SERP. They are many things to it but if I have to summarize and list it down, it would be these things:

      1. Low hanging fruit/Long tail keyword that has no or little competition

      2. High quality original content of at least 1000 words or above. The more the better.

      3 Fresh content every week if possible.

      4. Lively engagement with your website visitors, Can be achieved by creating worthwhile or controversial post. Engage audience through social media such as Facebook, twitter, instagram, pinterest, etc., and direct them to your website. The big G will love you for that.

      5. Having backlinks with authoritive websites/company in your industry

      If you have questions or need help, please don’t hesitate to ask Eunice. All the best to you 🙂

  13. Hi DLansing,

    Thanks for your reply. Can I ask what is backlinks means?

    By the way, I understand how the SEO works already. I have used the keyword tool on Magic Comb for Tangled Hair and it shows only 2 results. But why is it when i try to search on google it shows 464,000 results unless I put ” ” at each end of my keywords then it will shows 2 results. I don’t think anyone would put ” ” to search on google. Do you know how do I remove the ” ” from “Magic Comb for Tangled Hair” in the google search bar to get just 2 results for my website? Not sure if you get my question. Hahas..thanks!

    • Hi Eunice. No problem and thanks for coming back to my site and willing to ask again.

      Backlinks to put it simply, is basically url links from other website that links to your website and vice versa. It used to be that, the more backlinks you have in your website, the better ranking you get in the search engine especially google. However, since the latest Google Panda updates been rolled-in, websites with too many backlinks especially low quality ones, will no longer be favoured by Google.

      I’m not saying that backlinks are not important. Only backlinks that connected to a relevant authoritive websites or organizations will be favoured well by the big G. Authoritive websites also includes Wikipedia, Big News Corporation, and the like. Better still, if these authoritive website features your link into their article or post. That gives a lot credibility to your website in the eyes of the big G 😉

      If you notice, I’ve actually remove your website link from my site because it is not relevant to my niche website and also not authoritive enough. Sorry about that ya, just want to let you know.

      With regards to your other question on searching a particular keyword and put a “” to it, I think you do that to check how many websites that uses that particular “keyword”. So based on that alone, there are only 2 websites that have that exact keyword of yours. That basically means that you don’t really have much competition on that particular keyword which in this case is “Magic Comb for Tangled Hair”. Good for you Eunice, as you have made your research. However, my Jaaxy research tool results also shows that not many people actually search that particular keyword of yours, where less than 10 people per month search that terms in the search engine. In my opinion, that is not the best choice of keyword to use. I recommend you to conduct a more thorough research for to find the best keyword for your niche product.

      That’s all from me Eunice and I hope my explanation helps in some way 🙂

  14. Hello

    • Hi Roamy, I am really glad to know that my post help in a way especially with regards to where to learn online marketing. As for SEO, in a nutshell it is essentially the many techniques and methods involved to get your website or any of your online presence, to appear favorably in the eyes of the search engine such as Google or Bing, so that your sites can appear at the top ranking of the search engines. Being able to be on the first page of Google for example, will really help you garner good traffics to your site. It can also be done more effectively through social media but that would be another discussion in another post 🙂

  15. Great article…Lots of power you provide here, and I most certainly will check out the Wealthy Affiliate site mentioned. I have had some not so good experiences with other such sites, and it sounds like this one is a cut above…

    Did you creat this site using their services? If this is an example of what they teach, I am sold! The thing is these other education sires seemed more focused on getting more money out of my wallet than teaching…

    Well presented information here and I am sure you too are on the way to a successful online marketing business if you keep it up! Best of luck to you in that endeavor!

    • Hi Dave, yes you are right. This site is actually made through the teaching of Wealthy Affiliate (WA). There are actually more to be learned but I take it one at a time. Believe me, WA is the real deal and the value you receive is so much more than the fee that you are paying for. It boggles my mind how they can be profitable with such an affordable fee yet providing such a powerful system of learning and internet marketing tools. They must have a backing from a powerful venture capitalist I presume hehe.

  16. I can also vouch for the wealthy affiliate community as I’m also a part of it – there’s a thriving community in the background who are all willing and able to help others with their websites and marketing 🙂

    • Hi John, definitely. Online marketing is suitable to even those who have no experience. It can be learned rather easily but one must have the patience and perseverance to learn all the basics. If you are thinking of starting your own online business, I would highly recommend to learn from the best program which in my opinion is The Secret to Making Money Online Revealed – Wealthy Affiliate Review. Their program is very easy to follow, very structured, and always up to date.

  19. I fully agree with your choice and recommendation for the best way to start up an online business. Wealthy affiliate is the best online training site that I have ever seen in terms of training. This site has helped so many people to get started online, no wonder they are voted no.1!

  20. It is a rat race that’s for sure! Everyone always wants there piece of the pie. Great info on this site! It helps to know about scams. It really hurts your online business if you fall for something like a money scam. Gland you shared that info with us! And Wealthy Affiliate is great also ! Thanks
