Getting started

How To Get Started Online

startmeGetting started online. Sounds a wee bit intimidating huh?  Well stick with me for a little bit and I’ll show you how to get up and running instantly and it will only take a few minutes of your time. It won’t be difficult and it won’t cost  you a dime. It took me 6 months to figure out what I had to do to get rolling myself. Hopefully  what I am about to discuss, will lead to a more efficient use of your time.

Trying to Figure it Out

how to get started onlineWhen I made the decision to try and develop an online career I tried a few different things. Tried and failed. Basically, because I had no idea what the hell I was doing. I only knew I was determined to accomplish what I had set out to do. Develop a career online. I spent countless hours researching and trying a few things. I actually paid $97 for a program that was supposed to help me start earning money online. Hah! What a waste of time and money. I didn’t give up. However, I refused to keep spending money on useless “guru” crap. That part was easy because I had no money to spend. The one program I did spend $ on made me aware of a way to get started without forking over buttloads of $.

Affiliate Marketing

affiliate-marketing-e1379306231634Affiliate marketing (AM) is when you advertise products/services for a company other than your own. In return when a customer buys products/services from this company through a link the company provides, the advertiser (you) receives commissions as payment from the company. This way it isn’t necessary to sell your own products. Cutting start-up costs to practically nil.  I continued with my research, but I focused on the AM aspect of making money online.  I knew this was something I could sink my teeth into.

I tried to become an affiliate marketer with nothing but my PC and my keyboard. I was kidding myself I think. I determined it was necessary to be in possession of a website If I wanted to be taken seriously. More research. I tried different places that offered free websites and free website builders, all to no avail. Clearly, I needed some sort of education if I were to succeed.Not only that, I needed some kind of support system where I was able to obtain answers Immediately, instead of waiting two or three days for whoever to get back to me. Then when they did get back to me, My question wasn’t even answered to my satisfaction. GRRRRRRR! I was starting to get really pissed off and frustrated about the entire situation. Wasn’t  there anybody who could help me?

Brief Recap

how to get started online I realized there were three Key elements to achieving success in the AM business. Want to know what they are?  Good, because I want to tell you.

  • A website – as this would be the place I would conduct my business
  • An education – so I could understand and learn more about affiliate marketing.
  • A serious support system available 24/7 to help me on those nights when I refused to sleep until my situation was resolved.

I almost joined Empower network. I had been burned twice with the other things I had tried and I wasn’t about to be burned a third time. So before I signed with those bozos I decided to research them a little before I paid out any more money ( which I didn’t have anyway ) What I found out about those dudes was enough to keep me away forever. One of the websites where I read a review about EN offered me an alternative that didn’t cost me anything to get started

Paying it Forward

logo I am a serious believer in paying it forward. Here is where I got my start. Wealthy Affiliate. These guys have helped me by giving me my website for free.

    Hey Polly

    Hey Polly,
    I’ve really examined tons of your responses. I’d like to say to you and everyone here or that have found their way here. YOU Polls are very consistent with what you say over and over. Great job. You are not trying to convince anyone to look in to doing what you do. You tell them facts and your personal truth and efforts how you failed, tried, and finally figured out it takes time and effort (WORK, PUT TIME IN TO BE SUCCESSFUL, NOT BE LAZY) Thank you for at least sharing yourself and your time. So, folks here is one of many quotes to prove Polly is telling you info, not forcing anybody to do anything they don’t want to. Best part is, her own words and experiences.

    Thanks for just getting the word out.
    As for me, I haven’t joined yet, because I’m going to ponder what i can plan to fully maximize my free 7 day trial, to be a success THEN add all the bells and whistles. Meaning the add ons. (Fees) Remember nothing is for free and takes work. Which I am okay with.

    I was literally 2 seconds away from signing with “that other company”. I saw your warning and YOU quickly helped me make a good decision. Thank you very much. I was a sales manager for 13 years. I lost my job about 5months ago to an owner who was shut down due to tax issues. It left me and 6 other guys out of a job. I had been with this company for 15 years. I hadn’t had to look for a job since high school. It’s been extremely tough. I am 3/4 into my savings and what I have left will cover living expenses for me and my sons. I am a single father who is at his wits end. I read about Wealth Affiliate on here and I am impressed. Of course, i am a little scared but I trust you. Anyone willing to take the time to reassure and protect people he or she doesn’t know, is okay in my book.
    How do I get started? I am very anxious to get some income soon. Thank you for all you do and have done.

      Hey Don,
      Good thing you stopped to check before you wasted time and money. I am glad I could help and I am honored by your trust in me. I have to admire somebody who can make a living in sales. I tried it more than once, and I was never very good at it. I know how it feels to start over.It is scary and hard.I imagine it is very difficult for you being a single father. After spending 25 years of my professional life in the restaurant/catering industry, I have grown weary. I moved in with my mom and it turns out I need to be here for her. I needed to find a way to work at home. I decided to try and find a way to earn an income online.In doing so, I have found a new passion. Helping others do the same thing.So I am going to do my best to help you Don. After spending 6 months searching the internet, (it is a daunting task) I finally found Wealthy Affiliate. ( Read more about WA ) They are without a doubt, the best thing that ever happened to me.And they can be the best thing that ever happened to you.In my research, I discovered most of these schemers either wanted money up front or they wanted a credit card For the “free trial” offer. They often use this little trick hoping you will have forgotten your free trial is over and bill you before you know what is happening. Sucks, but it happens (happened to me once.) This is only one of the features that set WA apart from all the others. I am personally inviting you to get started with your own online business, for free. You don’t even need a credit. I know it is a little scary, I was scared too. But it is the best decision I ever made. The free starter membership includes two free websites with free hosting, Ten free lessons and access to 24/7 live chat to help you when you run into difficulties. It won’t cost you anything for the free trial. Then you can decide if this is what you want and If it is your first month of premium membership will only cost $19. Or you can continue with the free starter membership with no financial obligation whatsoever. So to get you started either click on one of the links in this comment or go to the ‘Uncover the secrets to making money online banner” on the right at the top and click there. I will be waiting for you to personally help you on your journey to online success.
      See you there!!
