Content is your Business

Here’s what I really love about the Wealthy Affiliate platform. The owners are hands on and involved. Many of the trainings are done by Kyle, who is one of the owners and creators of the platform. Wealthy Affiliate has been around for over 14 years. Many of the thousands of members have been with the program since it’s inception. That’s pretty impressive, and the reason why is because they take great pride in the content they provide on the site and the customer service they give.

In this lesson, Kyle discusses content in great depth. He explains the four core steps in creating a successful online business. Wealthy Affiliate is all about building the foundation properly. They don’t take short-cuts. So many programs out there talk about a “blue-print” and how for $199.99 you can have it and be up and running making money the next day.

That’s just not true, and it’s actually not even possible. One of the things you’ll learn in the Wealthy Affiliate University is that your content must always be unique. You cannot use someone else’s “blue-print” and even hope to rank in the search engines, especially if that “blue-print” is being used by every Tom, Joe and Harry who pays them $199.99, right? It just doesn’t even make sense.

Wealthy Affiliate teaches you how to build a legitimate online business that can make you a lot of money, but the fact of the matter is that you must build that business, and you must do it the right way from the beginning.

The foundation! The huge value in the Wealthy Affiliate program is in the education you receive and the step-by-step training you get to build that foundation properly and then expand upon it for ultimate success!

Getting traffic

What is traffic? Everyone talks about it, and it’s what makes you a lot of money. Traffic is your readers. It’s the people who come to your website. Why do they come to your site? They come because you have information or products that they are in need of. You’re answering a question for them, perhaps. Maybe you’re doing a review of a product that they’re interested in. They’ve searched on the search engines (Google, Bing, Yahoo) for something and now they’ve come to your site as a result.

How do they land on your site? They land there because when they search on Google, the search engine displays your site on page 1. That’s how. You want traffic to your site, well then you must be able to rank on page 1 of the search engines. That’s the name of the game. Ranking on Google and getting traffic to your site.

Wealthy Affiliate spends a lot of time on this topic. It all ties in to your content. If you write interesting, well-researched, relevant content on a regular basis, the search engines will deem you a reliable and important site. The search engines only want to display the best content to the people who are searching, so you have to earn that place.

I’ve written an article all about getting traffic. It’s such an important topic, so take a few minutes right now to read this. You’ll get a lot of value out of it:


Video Training

Everyone learns differently, and one of the main benefits of the Wealthy Affiliate University is that they provide you with written training as well as video training. Many people like to read their lessons, and some people have data plans that don’t allow for a lot of video watching. Other people really get the most out of watching the videos and seeing the lessons performed. They walk through the steps in real time so you can see exactly how things are done.

In this lesson, Kyle goes over the four steps to building an online business and breaks it down in easy terms. He really stresses not to over-think it – to follow the steps and you’ll make the money. The video reiterates these principles, and after every video lesson, students have a chance to ask questions or leave comments.

If you’d like to view the video that Kyle presents, I can give you an inside glimpse into the Wealthy Affiliate platform here:

Social Value

This lesson continues with the four aspects that Google looks at to rank your content. Learning what makes your content rank will help you to create the proper kind of content giving value not only to your readers, but to yourself when you monetize your site.

The Wealthy Affiliate platform drives traffic to your site, and Google loves a site that gets traffic. The other members of the platform will leave comments on your site and give you feedback. It is truly one of the most important and beneficial aspects of the wealthy Affiliate program!

  1. Great title! Like the font and the graphics. Very good insights here, especially for those who are not familiar with Wealthy Affiliate. Wealthy Affiliate truly is a great community of people, unlike a lot of other suspect platforms out there. Great reference to content, which is the meat and potatoes of any blog. Keep up the good work and thanks for sharing!

    1. Thank you so much for stopping by and taking the time to comment on my site!  I appreciate your kind words!  ~ Babs

  2. This is a very interesting topic of mine. I’ve always wanted to start an online business. I do have a couple of questions for you if you can give me a little insight.

    i understand the pay per click on advertisements that are on a website, but how do you get paid for just content on a blog that doesn’t sell anything? Is that even possible?

    Is it possible to have enough generate enough income from 1 website to possibly leave ones job or is this from multiple websites that you create? I’m asking this because I see that the premium membership gives you the opportunity to own many websites.

    Thank you for a little insight into affiliate marketing and telling the reader that you cannot make money overnight. Too many people are offering another get rich quick scheme.

    1. Hi David, you would have to do one of two things to earn income from your blog.  If you don’t sell any products from the site, you would have to build a huge audience from the content, and then other people would advertise their products on your site.  Otherwise, you would choose products or services that you use in your niche and believe in, and promote them within your content to your readers.  You can definitely earn enough to quit your job.  I do this full-time now.  It takes a while, however, to get to that point, so stick with it!  ~ Babs
