Summary: Wealthy Affiliate is the best community to learn about online marketing to me. But it’s not a get-rich-quick scheme. If you are unable to dedicate to your business, you may end up blaming it and quit.

This is the reason I put together this review/ guide. To help you make the most of it, and maybe even start an online business that pays the bill. Enjoy!

If there is one thing you should know about Make Money Online courses, is that 99.9% of them stinks. First, they hype you up into thinking you can make hundreds of thousands of dollars in a short period of time, then left you with some crappy third-rate program and absolutely no sign of social interactions.

That’s not Wealthy Affiliate. Continue reading…

5 Online Marketing Blogs You Need to Follow

There are not only make money online courses out there. With the development of the internet and the online marketing business comes several blogs that teach about online marketing.

When I fist started out, I didn’t know about this… I spent $1,000 on a course to learn the basics about online marketing.

They basically taught most of what I spent money to learn for free… and more. What a funny creature the internet is!

It goes from blogs that’s more general about online marketing and mindset development to expert interviews, guides, case-studies to researches about traffic building and SEO.

With no further ado, let’s dive in! Continue reading…

Start An Affiliate Marketing Business

When I first started with affiliate marketing, I signed up for an account at ClickBank and innocently decided I will promote the top product in the affiliate marketing category and that was the CB Passive Income, a complete build-for-you program that promises you ongoing passive income.

I spent days on end working on email marketing and finally, I though better and decided I need to try the CB Passive Income myself. Long story short, I realize the program has very low conversion rate and I didn’t make a dime from it. Continue reading…
