It’s so many people’s dream – How to quit the job! It was mine! I was so unhappy; there was so much anxiety, and I would start to think about the job about mid-way through Sunday afternoon, knowing I had to go back to it on Monday morning. That is just not healthy. My journey into starting my online business began because I knew there was a better way!
If you want to learn from my experiences, because I tried so many of them, take a look around my site. You’ll see that what I’m telling you is accurate and real. Finally, I found the program that works, that’s real, and that doesn’t make false promises but tells me exactly what I have to do to be successful making money from home.
I chose affiliate marketing as my means of how to quit the job. Personally, I didn’t want to deal with physical products, or product returns, or customer complaints or problems. My desire to make a difference, work from home, do something meaningful to me and earn an income doing it is what motivated me. That’s why I chose affiliate marketing.
You see, affiliate marketing lets you do something you love; something you’re passionate about, and it makes me happy. I feel like I’m helping people and doing something to make a difference in people’s lives. That’s important to me as much as supporting myself and my family.
I have two sites that I run for my business. This website, Coaching for Internet Marketers, is my “work from home” niche site, which is dear to my heart. The other site I run is a health and beauty site called Fountain of Youth Lifestyle. I am a “health and nutrition nut”, and I’ve studied nutrition my entire life, so being able to have a blog to share all my information with my readers has been a light in my life.
Being a teacher for most of my life, working with various adult and children’s programs as a volunteer, it’s what I’m passionate about. I love to teach. Now I have a digital platform to share my knowledge and my research with the world, and it’s been so rewarding. It brings me income, and more importantly, it brings me joy.
I have a way for you to start your business 100% for free, so pay attention. This is not some “trial” either. It’s a free program. Wealthy Affiliate has something called their Starter Membership. I’ll put the outline here below to show you the Starter and then what you get if you upgrade to the Premium Membership.
The Premium Membership is their top program (they only have Starter and Premium) which unlocks all the services they provide. I started with the Starter plan when I first signed up, and then when I knew I wanted to pursue my business full-time and that I liked the platform, I went ahead and upgraded to Premium to unlock everything.
How long does it take
This is where I get real with you, because Wealthy Affiliate was the first program to get real with me. It is not a get-rich-quick in a week scheme. Honestly, anyone who tells you that you can start generating thousands of dollars in a week is just straight up lying to you, I’m sorry. It takes time.
How much time depends on you. How much time do you have to devote to your business. If you’re working full-time, you also have a life to take care of, so realistically, just how much time can you devote.
My personal story is I was working full-time when I started this venture, but I am no longer working outside my home. I work on my business about 8 hours on a typical day, sometimes longer. I am passionate about my business, and I enjoy working on my sites, and that is why I am able to devote so much time to it.
How it works
Let me give you the brief version here and then direct you to another article that I think might give you more details about the business. One thing I want to mention is that inside the Wealthy Affiliate platform, you’ll be given full training on setting up your business. The program walks you step-by-step through the process with video tutorials and everything.
What if you’re new to this
Trust me, even if you’re new to this, you don’t have to worry. You’ll even have access, as a Starter member, to the owners and community for the first seven days. Take that first week and really dive in and devote as much time as you can to take advantage of all the benefits. You’ll know in that time if it is for you, and if you upgrade to Premium in that first 7 days, you’ll only pay $19 for the first month of Premium. That’s awesome. After that, the entire business, platform, websites, everything is only $49 a month. A whole business for $49 a month? That is a deal.
Affiliate marketing – the brief version
Here is how you do it.
Part 1 – Setup
1) You set up a website. With the Starter Membership, you get two free sites. You don’t pay for your domains if you go with a site.rubix site. If you ever want to upgrade to your own .com site, you can transfer all your content over at any time for $13 a year, but start with the free ones for now.
2) You go through the training. The training will give you tasks for each lesson. As an example, you’ll pick your website name and your theme. The Starter plan offers a variety of website themes, and here’s the cool part. You can change your website theme whenever you want as often as you want, and all your content transfers over. Therefore, you can try different ones until you find one you love.
3) You pick a niche. Your niche is the subject of your site. For example, this website is a Make Money Online niche. My other site is a Health and Beauty niche website. The program helps you choose your niche. Start with one. I know the program gives you two sites for free, but just focus on one at a time. You can rinse and repeat afterwards, but focus all your energy on your first niche website.
Part 2 – Implementation
4) Write relevant, exciting content. Here it is folks, the meat of the business. Your content. It’s what drives your business. This is why people come to your site, to read your content. You want to solve a problem, offer a solution, help someone find something or learn something. That is your “job” now as an affiliate marketer. It is not to sell products, but to provide content. This is what the search engines want to see to rank you as important; they want to see relevant content about your niche.
5) Find related products or services to market. Once you have established your site, you can begin to look for products and services to market. (The program trains you on this as well). You will set up affiliate agreements with merchants, and you will be provided links for your site to direct people to products. When people click your link and buy from the merchant directly, you earn a commission. How sweet is that? No inventory, no customers, just a referral fee, if you will!
Why Wealthy Affiliate?
That’s simple. It’s because they are a proven platform, and I have personal experience with them. I tried so many other “programs,” and I spent a lot of money trying them, let me tell you. Wealthy Affiliate is the real deal, and you can trust this because you don’t have to use a credit or debit card to sign up. All you need is your name, your username, an email and a password. That’s it!
Wealthy Affiliate is owned by two affiliate marketers named Carson and Kyle. They are accessible in the platform. You can private message them at any time, or you can contact them on specific training through the comments. That’s powerful. They are hands-on owners, and that speaks volumes. Kyle does much of the training in the program as well!
Want to get to know me a little better? Here’s a quick video I put together to give my personal testimonial about Wealthy Affiliate. Take a quick look:

The company has been in business over 14 years, and many of the members have been on the platform the entire time. Once people sign up, they don’t leave. There are just too many benefits to staying. One huge benefit of Wealthy Affiliate is the Jaaxy keyword research tool. This tool was created by the owners to help you find the perfect, high volume, low competition keywords for your niche.
