Biggest Scam Of 2018?847672f44784db314a58fb70d4edfa761541292166 cropped optimized - And The Scam For 2018 Goes To Wealthy Affiliate!

You may have heard of Wealthy Affiliate, the online platform where people try and make money as affiliate marketers. And you may have checked out the reviews for this platform. And what you may have read is many people think that it’s just a brainwashed website that instructs it’s members to write fake reviews on other online programs and calls them out as being frauds. You may have read that the way Wealthy Affiliate works is by getting people to sign up and in a few months they get discouraged and then just quit and the guys who run the thing don’t care because they got the membership fees for a few months. And you may have read that Wealthy Affiliate got sued in 2015. That’s true too. They were.

So, why do people bother to join the company if it’s such a rip-off? Because they get lured in by the idea of easy money with minimal effort that’s why. And when they don’t make money in a month or two they quit. Then they call it a scam.

Most people who join Wealthy Affiliate seem to give up at the six-month time frame. It seems to be just the way it is with the company. They sign up for the Premium membership, figure they will try it out for size and then in a few months, poof they are history. Down the road.

How do I know all this 411 on Wealthy Affiliate? Because I have been a member for 3 years now. And I have seen a ton of people come and go. I have figured it out why they do this too. They have no patience and don’t want to put in the hard work to see it through. And I’m going to try not to dig on the under 35 generation but it seems like many of them want what they want and want it now. They don’t want to get down in the trenches and work hard at succeeding. They just want a quick buck and out of moms house living the good life.

I’m here to tell you, that will never work no matter what you try in life. You can’t cut corners. You’ll end up broke and living like a bum. Or worse you’ll end up in prison. Because hard work is something that comes from within. It’s the drive that gets you up in the morning. The drive that gets you telling yourself that yes, you can and will succeed.

I’ve been down the road of hard knocks. I won’t bore you but I will tell you the truth. I’m 55 years old now. I have a son and a wife and this life has given me some tough lessons. Dad comitted suicide when I was 17 and I went and joined the Marine Corps. I did my time and got out and ended up homeless because my family was pretty much non-existent and I had trouble adapting to civilian life. I managed to get jobs though and an apartment and eventually after another three-year stint in the Navy reserves I started to settle down. By then I was working in a freezer all night stocking frozen food in 22 degrees. It sucked but I kept at it. Finally, I got divorced and went back home to San Diego and was pretty much burned out by my early thirties.

In 1998 I started working as an electrical apprentice and kept at it, completed four years and got my journeyman card. I worked commercial electrical work for 10 years.

Then I got hit with another nightmare. I caught menengitis and almost died. The girl in the next room did pass away and was only 24. My point is that through all the b.s. life threw at me I knew that the only way to succeed at anything was to not give up. And joining Wealthy Affiliate three years ago really changed my way of looking at my life and realizing that I could do anything I put my mind to. Why? Because I had been down some tough roads but always managed to bounce back.

My thinking is those who join the platform and quit haven’t had enough hard knocks in life. They are still living in a trance either dreaming of a future that will just show up and 30 years old living at their parent’s house. Or they are just plain lazy, depressed, jaded or all of the above. Of course, those who are disabled are excluded from this list. I have immense compassion for those who struggle with illnesses and disabilities. Because I suffer from one too. The post effects of menengitis.

Why Join Wealthy Affiliate And Is It The Scam Of 2018?

Listen. I don’t b.s. you here. I won’t tell you it’s a walk in the park and anyone can make it. They can’t. It’s like the Marine Corps. I was a scrawny 17-year-old when I went in. I weighed 135 pounds. I was yelled at by the drill instructors because my home was 2 miles from MCRD training in San Diego and they wanted me to quit. They said just jump the fence, you’ll be home in a half hour. I didn’t quit and went on to get an honorable discharge.

I look at Wealthy Affiliate and all those people who call it a scam the same way. They can’t hack it. They are negative and weak. They may even be living in momma’s basement. Who knows. But, in three years I have built a website I am proud of. I worked hard at in and now it’s making me money. Not a ton but it is making money. Anyone can do it but they have to take it seriously and work hard. And keep going when the going gets tough. Otherwise, I don’t suggest even bothering to join.

You came to this page for some reason. Maybe you were checking out Wealthy Affiliate and figured you would look to see if it’s a scam or the real deal. I don’t know. But for those who believe everything anyone says, I say you’re the one who is brainwashed. Check out Wealthy Affiliate for yourself. If you think you can make a decent website then go for it. I did. You can too. Or you can sit and home dreaming about that fairy tale life that doesn’t exist. Your choice.

Are Wealthy Affiliates Success Stories Real?wealthy - Are Wealthy Affiliates Success Stories Real?

Someone recently was considering signing up with the Wealthy Affiliate and asked me if all those Wealthy Affiliate success stories were real. My reply was yes, they are but that doesn’t mean everyone succeeds at it. The look on their face told me what they were thinking. “Why waste my time?”

And that’s what happens with a lot of people who start on the Wealthy Affiliate and don’t see success overnight. It’s kind of sad really because anyone with half a brain would know that it takes work to succeed at anything. It’s like when I went to Marine Corps boot camp back in the 80’s. The drill instructors told us flat out many of us would fail and it was true. Many did fail. I don’t believe it was because all of them couldn’t handle boot camp. I think they told themselves it was too hard so they just said “I Quit!”

Strangely or not I saw that throughout my working career, guys would sign up to do the work but then when the going got tough they threw in the towel and went running. I don’t mean to laugh at it either, it’s really sad that the only barrier to our success is really what we say to ourselves.

Does The Wealthy Affiliate Even Work?

Ok, so you want to know if the Wealthy Affiliate even works. Is it worth your time or is it just some pie in the sky scam that a couple dudes thought up? Actually it does work but it’s up to you to make it work. The platform just gives you the tools to become a success. Most of it will depend on your ability to learn and implement what you learned on your website. And yes, this platform has made a lot of folks a good ongoing income but it has taken them time. Nothing great is achieved overnight.

Take a look at some of the success stories of Wealthy Affiliate members here.

I have been a member of the Wealthy Affiliate for almost two years. In that time I have consistently worked on my blogging tips website and now it has grown to a site that is well trusted in my chosen niche. But, it didn’t happen overnight. I had to work at it and keep writing when I didn’t want to and now it is finally paying off. But, it isn’t just monetary payoffs that I like. I like the fact that I didn’t quit while I saw others fall by the wayside. It shows me that maybe my old Marine Corps training is still helping me today.

Is Wealthy Affiliate Worth The Membership?animal 17474  340 - Are Wealthy Affiliates Success Stories Real?

The platform has two different memberships, free and paid. As far as the free membership goes anyone can stay a free member and keep building their website with a site rubix domain. But they don’t get the advanced training in affiliate marketing that’s needed to succeed. The paid membership is $49.00 a month which includes all of the training with both affiliate marketing lessons and a boot camp which trains you how to gain referrals.

You also get access to huge member base that has some very well educated affiliate marketers that can steer you in the right direction. But, I will say that the key to success as a blogger will be consistency and dedication to what you are doing. If you got that down, the sky is the limit on this platform.


Dedicate Yourself And You Will Succeed

Wealthy Affiliates Success stories are real but so is the hard work that was spent trying to get their websites making money. And it isn’t an overnight success but if you are dedicated, can write and learn some simple practices you can become a success on the site. It’s been proven over and over. There is no time frame for success either, it comes with time and ebbs and flows as you will see if you keep at blogging for a while.

That’s all I have to say about the Wealthy Affiliates right now. It does work but you have to make it work for you. It’s not a ticket to instant success as many seem to believe. It’s also not a scam but a learning university that teaches you how to succeed in the affiliate marketing arena. If you have the dedication and drive to succeed you too can but only if you keep trying when others quit.

Is The Blog Starter Program Worth It?

I recently checked out a blogging program online that caters to bloggers looking to earn online. The Blog Starter Program caught my eye and I figured I would write a blog about it and tell you my thoughts on this.
