How to Become Rich on The Internet

How to Become Rich on the Internet

If you are searching the web looking for tips on how to become rich on the internet, you have no doubt come across many articles from people trying to sell you a “get rich quick scheme”.

That is not why I am here.

I am here to promote Wealthy Affiliate for what it really is.

I do so because of the benefits that it has brought to me on a personal level.

If you are looking for the quick and easy way out then I suggest you move along. There is nothing that I can say to appeal to you.

Instead, I am looking to connect with those that are happy to put in the hard work.

The Wealthy Affiliate university requires an on-going commitment to a beneficial resource that really can help. If you are happy to make that commitment, read on.

I promise that my guide will be worth your time.

What makes Wealthy Affiliate different from these other schemes?

What makes Wealthy Affiliate different from these other schemes?

There are lots of systems out there that claim to provide enormous pay checks for signing up and doing the minimal amount of work that is required.

Then there are those thinly-veiled pyramid schemes that encourage people to sign up, sell goods and pass the product down the line.

Each man to his own, but this was not the approach for me.

I wanted something where I could actually learn the right tools on how to become rich on the internet. I didn’t want it handed to me.

I wanted something where I could actually learn the right tools on how to become rich on the internet

I wanted a resource that could guide me through my own ventures and provide lasting support over the years.

The word ‘years’ may surprise people. I have been working via this wonderful Wealthy Affiliate platform for a number of years now and continue to see the benefits of being part of this system’s community.

It is this community element that keeps me hooked in. There is always someone else to turn to and to bounce ideas off of.

I watched the tutorials, built my websites and got started on my quest to make money online.

Even though I was succeeding, I kept my foot in the door with Wealthy Affiliate to keep up with the new information and the other members.

What clear benefits are being offered to new users?

Let’s get down to the basics here. What is it about the Wealthy Affiliate plan that is so advantageous to people looking into how to become rich on the internet?

The first clear advantage here is the breadth of information and the range of styles.

There are training courses, videos and tutorials at both a beginner and advanced level. This includes 13 fully interactive classrooms. This is then enhanced by the use of a strong support system.

In addition to the live help system, there is a large community of members that are happy to share ideas and offer advice. This is also a spam free environment which is highly welcomed.

The final selling point is the use of websites for you to turn your ideas into money making schemes.

Wealthy Affiliate Steps

Once you have taken the time to learn everything and work through the classes, it is time to put the theory into practice.

This can be daunting for anyone starting up for the first time. However, there is something rewarding about taking the time and effort to do it on your own.

Wealthy Affiliate are providing us with two free websites and high-end hosting options, but it is up to us to turn them into profitable schemes.

Nothing’s Perfect – there are some catches…

Let’s be honest here about this system. It is possible to get some great guidance on how to become rich on the internet, but there are some drawbacks.

All of the features above are brilliant tools but you will have to upgrade your membership in order to get the best experience.

This isn’t for people that want a free ride and are happy to pick up the small scraps. You really do need to immerse yourself in the chat room, tutorials and other tools to get ahead.

Wealthy Affiliate Members Screen

This jump to premium is the only up-sell that you will have to deal with. From there you have the freedom to follow your own path with the learning tools and your two free websites.

The other potential issue here is the amount of information offered. As I say, this is a forum of information and ideas that is diverse and continually updated.

This means that the information can be a little bit overwhelming for those that want a basic tutorial.

It is also too easy to lose yourself in the videos and chat when you could be working on your site and making money.

There is a learning curve here. It cannot be emphasized enough that this is not for the faint hearted.

So how much is it?

I know what your final question is going to be here, as it is the same one I had when I first discovered Wealthy Affiliate all those years ago…

How much is this brilliant service going to cost me?

How much money am I potentially throwing away by taking a chance here?

So how much is it?

The great news is that there is no start up cost. Users are free to check out the system with no credit card required and then pay their $49 premium fee if they are convinced.

Do you think that Wealthy Affiliate is for you?

Hopefully I have done a decent job at showcasing why this program was ideal for me and why I recommend it so highly.

The question is, it this the right approach for you?

If you are looking to make some extra cash by doing something that you love, Wealthy Affiliate can help.

It is hard work, but you don’t need to be a technical wizard to start because the program caters for complete beginners – from retired housewives wanting to monetize a blog to students looking for a side line.

You can literally start with the vaguest idea for a website and learn how to become rich on the internet.

Think of an interest, use Wealthy Affiliate to build and improve a website, build your rankings and earn money.

It really is that simple.

It worked for me and I am sure it can work for you…

  1. Nicely written article. Thanks for the in depth review. I definitely agree with you that making a success online takes hard work and commitment. I am also with wealthy Affiliate and what I love most about their training is that they teach you how to build and promote your own online business. You don’t have to sell their products. This way you are in control of your own brand. For the price you pay to have access to their platform and learning material I think it’s money wisely invested.

    1. Hi there Celeste,

      Great to hear from someone who has also experienced the WA education – I hope the training and the marketing journey is going well for you?

      Yes, they are by far the best choice on the internet for building a successful business BUT like everything in life you do have to put the work in!

      Great to meet ya – have a nice day! 🙂

  2. Good article on a good system. I enjoy using Wealthy Affiliate too and I am determined, like yourself to become successful from it.
    The training, support, community, hosting is all totally worth it. It definitely beats searching the internet for different tips (which I sometimes do). A lot of what you need to know to become successful online is here and there are people to prove it.

    1. Hi Josh,

      Who says I’m not already successful? 🙂

      No I’m one of the lucky ones – been there for years and now I’m able to work online full time through my websites. There are a lot of members out there like me – all you have to do is follow Kyle and Carson’s lead. The only way you can fail is by quitting.

  3. Yeah, I totally agree with you. As a blogger, I know that there is no such thing as get rich quick on the internet. It takes dedication and commitment, but if you keep at it, you will succeed. I have tried out wealthy affiliate, and I would recommend it for anyone who is new to making money online

    1. Great to have your recommendation here Ben…and nice to hear that you have experienced the WA community first hand!

      You are bang on the money with dedication and commitment – without it any sort of business will fail.

  4. I’ve heard lots of good things about Wealthy Affiliate, so I join the WA. I must admit that I learned a lot. I was able to make my own web site, write blogs. As a free member I have not come a long way, so I immediately switched to Premium members. As I said, I learned a lot, but I have not earned anything jet. Do you have any advice for me?

    How long did it take you to see good results and how long have you been a member there?

    1. Hi Deva, and congratulations on making a great choice!

      My main advice would be to go through EVERYTHING Kyle and Carson have put up there – the training is not hard but there is a lot of it!

      Try to go through each module twice in a row and don’t ever be afraid to go back!

      The community is there to support you – use them whenever you see fit (24 hours a day!)

      I saw really good results within the first 4 to 6 months but I was lucky enough to work at it full time. I have been a member there now for many, many years – I won’t leave! 🙂

  5. Hi,

    Making money on the internet is not something that happens overnight. This is what people neglect to understand. They are always looking for get rich quickly schemes which do not exist.

    Affiliate marketing takes time and effort and wealthy affiliate is definitely a great program to help you on your journey

    1. Yeah I know what you mean Michael – I felt that way when I first came online to work…and ended up getting scammed! Work is hard work – online and in the physical world!

  6. You are right on with the money regarding Wealthy Affiliate. I too have been with them for about 8 months now. I think the biggest benefit I have right now, is the community and how they can help with your website rankings. We can help each other get our websites ranked higher and there are specific ways of doing this that is easy and not so time consuming.

    1. Oh I’ve been there a lot longer than 8 months! 🙂

      Yeah they have everything set up in a really clever way – ranking each other’s sites is a breeze with their tools….but the readers will have to sign up if they want to know more LOL

    2. I agree, this is the first program that the community has been so helpful. The training has been the first to break it down step by step for me and be there all the way for support.

  7. It is true that WA give you the tools you need to succeed but success in its self require perseverance and hard work. I say so because no amount of knowledge will make you succeed if you do not burn the midnight candle putting it into practice.

    WA is a great place to get the motivation you need to succeed. Every business person have those blue days and to have a community of people who understand what you are going through is a blessing.

    1. Anything that is legit and worthwhile online takes perseverance and hard work Denise – that’s the way of the internet world (and the way it should be really!).

      If it was that easy to become a success online – everyone would be doing it…wouldn’t they?

  8. All to often we see make money online “Overnight” and boy this sure is an appealing statement, after all who doesn’t want to be rich overnight! Your review of Wealthy Affiliate is great, because it is honest about the work, time and commitment one needs to build a successful business

    1. Yep, we all know that most of these ‘overnight’ opportunities turn out to be nothing more than a flash in the pan…that will eventually lose you money!

      Success online can ONLY be achieved through hard work!

      Nice speaking with you Alison.

  9. Great promotion, Wealthy affiliate is the most viable way to make money from home, without ripping anyone off, without selling useless juice that you can buy from walmart to your friends and family! I agree with Matt’s Mom’s comment, we here at Wealthy Afilliate help each other with success, rankings, its a great community here, and definitely worth checking out!

    1. Cheers for that Jacob – every time I release an article involving the WA I get a tidal wave of comments off members who find the post. Makes me smile every time! 🙂

  10. To become rich on the Internet is like a dream to me. One I really hope to achieve. But everybody’s idea of rich is different. I am a member of Wealthy Affiliate and I can remember at the beginning the question they asked, how much do you want to make a month. Everybody has their expectations, I will settle for a slow and steadily growing income.

    1. Well you’ll have to settle for that I’m afraid – as that is all they offer!

      They are a platform that provides you with the ability to build up something substantial online – a business that will stand the test of time. They do all this for free as well!!!!

  11. Hi chris, so I’m pretty new to wealthy affiluate. This is my 2nd week and I love it. I got behind a few days because I got sick, but I would also like to do the WA affiliate boot camp when I get caught up. Is this the basic layout or did you improvise for the most part? It’s an excellent layout and very informative. I’m just not wanting to bite off more than I can chew at a time.

    1. Hi Ashley,

      Welcome to the WA. Now, what exactly do you mean by the layout – are you talking about my website maybe? Sorry, a little bit fuzzy on the question that’s all! 🙂

  12. Chris,

    I don’t understand why any person, genuinely interested in learning how to build a successful online business for him/herself would consider any other opportunity than the one offered at WA.

    With all of the info that you provided in your excellent review of this company clearly EVERYTHING is there to allow a person to generate income online in a business. The training, tools, (website building as well as hosting) plus a community of tens of thousands of active members frankly is unmatched by any other organization similar to WA.

    You mentioned that WA is not a get-rich-quick scheme. Right there I believe is why so many foolish people are turned off. They have been brainwashed by all of the scam get-rich-quick schemes that still can be found in every back-alley on the Internet.

    For a fact you and I are well aware that you cannot build a successful business online expecting to bring in a steady 5-figure/monthly within several weeks after you created it. It just does not work that way – but unfortunately there are still too many people who drink of the Kool-aid while still looking for the easy, fraudulent opportunities. And they get burnt!

    Great review Chris,


    1. That’s the key here Jeff – getting your mindset in the right place before you start out with online business!

      As you say, many people end up throwing in the towel because they don’t see any money after a month of working – I mean…what business was built in a month?

      The reality is that you have to learn the ropes AND build something sustainable – that’s where the Wealthy Affiliate comes into play!

      Fraudulent opportunities are everywhere…but there’s only one WA community!

      Nice talking with you mate!


  13. No doubt there is a lot of junk out there being promoted for running an online or affiliate marketing business and wealthy affiliate is definitely not one of them. Very good review and provides a lot of information for those out there looking to try something new that has been tested by thousands of happy people.

    Thanks for sharing

    1. No problem Hamada,

      By the sounds of your comment you are already a member of the WA community? Good move mate – it’s a wonderful place to build your online business idea!

  14. Hi there,

    I feel like the late Roy Castle when I say dedication is what you need!. WA system is hard work and very little happens within the first year for most people. The magic is in the second year when you keep on trucking! $300 a month and 3500 monthly traffic turns into $1800 and 25k visitors all organically and boom a nice income!

    Those results are typical and all organic free traffic. Some people do better!

    The key to their education is the hard work aspect though – people MUST realize that success with internet marketing can only be born out of graft. There are no quick fixes in this marketing sector.

    How long have you been a member with them for now Chris? I have seen your profile there many times before over the years!

    It’s the main reason why I visit your site so often – I know you’ve been brought up the right way LOL 🙂

    Great article once again my man!

    1. Hi Derek,

      Patience seems to be the one thing newbie internet marketers ignore…to their peril! People don’t seem to realize that to build up something strong online you have to put the foundations down – do the groundwork!

      Nothing worthwhile comes for free online – no matter what the sales page says!

      Everything solid will need work on your part, and the WA training is no different.

      To answer your question, I’ve been a member there for quite a few years on and off. I was a member, I left because I thought I was good enough, then I returned when I realized Google was an ever evolving beast!

      To be honest with you Derek, I doubt I’ll ever leave now. All my websites are on their hosting and they constantly update their training. It’s the place to be if you are looking for success!
