How to create a successful online business?
I know (or have heard of) people who have made their fortune online. They started out small and grew to become millionaires and even billionaires. It all began with their passion to succeed and them gaining the knowledge to know what steps to take and the willingness to keep going and not quit. Have you ever put yourself in their places and dreamed of making your own success of an online business?
You may think: I have no clue, I know nothing about websites or the internet or marketing.
But I am sharing some good news for you today.
There is a training platform and community that can teach you what you need to know to succeed online. It is called:
Wealthy Affiliate University
Wealthy Affiliate University is the best place to learn from scratch how to create WordPress websites and learn all about Affiliate Marketing.
The Wealthy Affiliate Program was created as an initiative to help other people succeed online in the same way Kyle and Carson (the owners ) experienced success. Since 2005, the platform at WA has continued to evolve and innovate at a pace that is faster than the industry.
WA offers free website hosting as well as superb training
Yes, I’m talking about free hosting for your website. And not just a website, but a WordPress website. WordPress websites have great benefits:
- The website builder is easy to use and the editor is almost as easy as creating a document in Word.
- You do not have to know HTML to edit your website or FTP to move files and images up and down from your site.
- With the WordPress software installed on the web server, you can access your website from any computer, not just your own desktop or notebook.
- WordPress (WP) has mountains of resources available, but search engines also love WordPress sites. It can take a bit of work to make the most of your WordPress website, but WP is designed to be very easy for search engines to crawl and index in search results.
- You are in control – the best benefit yet!
At GoDaddy, hosting for just a simple, basic WordPress website cost $3.99/month or $47.88/year. So several websites – I have over 10 myself – would cost me $477.88/year plus the cost of yearly domain name registrations, but I can host up to 50 WordPress websites through my Wealthy Affiliate Membership. I have been a Premium member of WA since 2014 – so I have saved considerably in just hosting fees over my membership cost.
But should you consider being a Premium Member of Wealthy Affiliates?
What is included in your Premium Membership?
First, let’s get the price out of the way. I don’t want there to be any secrets about the “paid” aspect of Wealthy Affiliate. There are two payment options for WA Premium. A month-to-month membership and a yearly membership (paid once per year in advance).
- Monthly = $49 per month ($1.62 per day)
- Yearly = $359 per year ($0.98 per day!)
One thing few people realize is that the yearly price is the exact same price that WA offered in 2005. Although Kyle and Carson have invested and continue to invest millions annually into improvements at WA for Premium members, they have not increased the yearly price.
The yearly option gives you a Premium membership for under $1 per day. The $49 option is a great value too – WA offers the most complete program in the industry for less than a cup of coffee per day. If you have looked around online it is completely evident that there is NOTHING that compares to this. WA Premium membership is in a league of it’s own – this is a fact.
And the Premium Membership also gives you hosting for up to 50 WordPress websites. At Godaddy, 50 WordPress websites would cost you $2,394.00/year.
And that’s not counting all the other benefits you receive for your Premium Wealthy Affiliate Membership.

You have another option
And there is one last wonderful benefit. Not sure this is for you? Well, our starter membership is totally free and gives you a wonderful way to try all the great training for a full 7 days. After the seven days, you still have some benefits, but not access to all the training and support. Hey! for 7 days, you are free to see what this is all about, ask your questions, meet other members and read about their questions, their ideas and their success.
I signed up for a free Starter Membership and accessed the WA community and training and was so impressed. On my 3rd day of that free week, I knew I HAD to upgrade to a Premium Membership. That was in 2014 and I have never looked back. I continue to learn so much from the training which is frequently updated and the posts and answers from the thousands of members. I have created over a dozen WordPress Websites, even some for my friends and others. I have also made new friends and acquaintances all over the world who are WA members.
During the last 3 years, I have had to take time away from my training, even months away due to some severe health issues, but now I can once again train and develop my websites – its all there waiting for me and with more and even better training and features today. My websites are growing and success is rearing its head as I finally monetize my sites.
