Many people in the military want to learn how to make extra money while serving active duty because sometimes our paycheck just isn’t cutting it.
I know that first hand because I was one of those people and here I am today going to tell you how I found a legit way to make extra money online.
You don’t have to report in to your chain-of-command, you work when ever you want, and from where ever you want.
I guess what I am saying is, I wanted another way to make my own money being my own boss and not having to listen to every single person who is a higher rank than me. I was looking for a way to just get away from that lifestyle for a bit.
As I was reading reviews online about work from home programs, I came across a program called Wealthy Affiliate. I did some digging, saw great feedback from it and decided to join.
When I first joined Wealthy Affiliate, I was welcomed from so many people. I learned from the start that I was going to love it. The biggest part that caught my attention was that I could talk to the people who actually created the program, Kyle and Carson. They gave me a little spill on what I was getting in to.
Even though they laid out clearly what I was getting myself into, I honestly still had no clue what I was getting into, I just knew that there was something pulling me in. I just wanted to make extra money. I went through the program for a couple hours and instantly gained a good feel of it. If you know how to use Facebook then you will do great navigating.
During my little tour, I saw they had live training video tutorials and a live chat feature that allowed you to seek help or just make new friends.
Just so I’m not boring you to death I’m going to get started telling you what the program did for me and a little bit of what its about.
What Wealthy Affiliate is and what it is about
Wealthy Affiliate is a program that teaches you how to become an affiliate marketer, that is promoting other people’s products through programs like Amazon, Ebay, etc. to earn a commission when the product is sold.
What it comes down to is finding out what you are really passionate about or your Niche and write about it on a website you create. For example “great sports watches”, “top of the line running shoes”, things like that.
Wealthy Affiliate gives you the trainings and tools on how to create your own website and how to create content for that website, all the way down to the links for promoting products which is the bread and butter.
I had no clue on how to do things like that, I only knew mostly what the military has taught me and affiliate marketing wasn’t apart of it. I’m an infantryman so computer skills wasn’t my strong point, I knew how to use Google and check my Facebook.
I came to realize after I started the live video tutorials that I created my very own website in about 30 seconds.
Pretty crazy right but its true. The video tutorials ran me step-by-step on how to create my website all the way down to setting up the little things like my title and how to add content.
So you see, you really do not need fancy computer skills or a college degree to do affiliate marketing. I train to fight being an Infantryman and now Wealthy Affiliate is training me to make more money. They give the top of the line training, Kyle and Carson are great Drill Instructors.
Now the real question that everyone is asking, do I really make money?
So this is a good question, I was asking the same thing to people in this program if they really make money doing affiliate marketing?
I found out for myself when I just kept following the training on Wealthy Affiliate and kept putting in content to my site.
I checked on my Amazon Associates page which is the program I use to promote products to see if I made any sales and was surprised that within three months of using Wealthy Affiliate, I had started making money.
It was crazy at first that I could actually make money doing this and I couldn’t believe it. My motivation shot up to the clouds and I was doing double work to get more content on my site.
The more visitors you get on your site the better. Remember there are millions of people out there searching for products and it’s possible that a good fraction will be looking up what you offer.
Don’t ever get discouraged and don’t lose your motivation.
What Wealthy Affiliate will do for your future
The great thing about being with Wealthy Affiliate is they help shape my future by providing me the training I need and helping me make money that will soon be enough to make this a full time job.
I know I was always thinking about what I was going to do when I get out of the military and now I don’t have to. By the time I get done with my contract, I will be making more than I do in the military and that is an amazing feeling.
I know everyone gets worried that when their contract is over, they will need to find another job in order to sustain. They will have to start at the bottom again. Now you don’t have to worry because if you start doing affiliate marketing now, it gives you enough time to get established and get your website booming.
As you know this is not a get rich quick kind of program, it takes time and patience to start getting income but once you start receiving income, you will be getting paid while you sleep.
The military gives us great discipline and motivation and that’s the tools needed to become successful. I know if I could do it you could too.
No more waking up at 0500 to do PT and then reporting in like 3 more times after that, just me, my couch, and my computer. With affiliate marketing, the sky is the limit!
