How Do I Start My Own Business?

So How do I Start my Own Business?

If you are new to the online world and looking at opportunities you will, without a doubt, raise the question of how do I start my own business?  It is tough doing traditional brick and mortar business and going online can be a tough gig too.

The big difference from online to off is the amount of money you have to outlay.  Online business can be started up with very little investment, however it’s your time and effort you are willing to put forth that will make the difference as to whether you succeed or not.

Following is a quick overview of an online business that pretty much has all the tools, trainings and support you need to build a successful website and blog online.  And there are follow-ups to this with a series of 5 other videos that will get you fully informed on this online buisness opportunity.

The 4 Main Components

There are really a whole lot of components to the Wealthy Affiliate program however I am putting the main things into 4 areas or sections and I will share them in more detail below.

Training and Tools

This is a huge part of the Wealthy Affiliate program.  As soon as you enter your details in the sign up form, the “Get Started Here” is the website building coursesplace where your journey should begin.  The whole system and the way the program works will be shown to you in videos and lessons.  Step by step.

Get Started (green button) or the Affiliate Bootcamp (black button) are the choices you can take.  The first one is a course that gets your niche/hobby related website built.  The Affiliate bootcamp course is more about promoting Wealthy Affiliate and a money making website.  However, to get a profitable website you can take either course.  The key is to apply what you learn as you go through the courses.

Watch lessons, get given tasks… apply.  Its as simple as that.

Included also is a Classrooms section full of more specific trainings from;  getting to know wordpress and your blog, to social media marketing and also local marketing.  These trainings are not only provided from the program itself, but also from experienced members within the system.  They share their knowledge also so really, there is a ton of training you can learn from.

There are live video classes held weekly.  These provide you with up to date training and what is happening right now on social media.  Plus, how to find a good niche and ways to improve your blog.  These live calsses are also interactive so you can get your questions answered right away!

With your membership, comes the websites and hosting.  You can create your website with siteubix in minutes and it his hosted here for free, so no looking to host elsewhere.

A keyword tool is also available to find really good quality and low competition keywords.  You can save lists of similar keyword combinations for later use.  This feature is so helpful as you build posts on your website.


tools and training for your online business


Member Contributions

What I love about Wealthy Affiliate is everybody has a voice.  You can write up blog posts in question form and other members will be more than happy to help you out.  Or you can write up success posts, or trainings to help others.

There are so many people who start with this program every day, and you have the option to welcome some of them to the community.

And whenever you do write a post, it will be visible on your own profile. What is great about this feature, is those that have been with Wealthy Affiliate for a number of years, have got more experience and achieved great success.  You can check out their posts and apply things that they have done with their own websites.

The Live Chat Feature

I love the live chat part of this program.  I have never seen this before in an online business.  I have never had quick and instant contact with other members from all over the world!  The fact you can ask a question and get an answer almost immediately is just brilliant.

The only problem with this, is you can waste alot of time!  Good thing or bad thing?  I think it is great!  You are building some wonderful relationships with people from all corners of the globe who are on the same journey as you. How cool is that!

Profile and Personal Stats

You fill out our personal profile and add and an image, so members within the system can get to know you.  This area is also dedicated to your stats and shows you how many people you invite to the program to try out for themselves.

It also has all your banners and links that you can use on your website.  These have your own personal affiiiate id so if anybody goes through any of these when they are featured on your website, they are linked back to you giving you the credit.

In this area also you will see all the members you follow within the system, and who is following you.  Plus a place where you can create your own blogs to share within the system, type up questions, or send personal internal memos to other members in the Wealthy Affiliate system.

In Summary

There really is alot to cover in this program and this blog post does not do it justice.  The best thing for you to do is to get in and try it out for yourself.  With no credit card or personal details required, you can basically take this program for a test drive at no cost or obilgation.

  1. Thanks for the informative article. I liked your presentation style and the information you provided. You’ve break down everything into step by step format, which is kinda cool.

    Wealthy Affiliate is by far the best engaging program, which provides high quality training and 24/7 support. For those who just starting out or even intermediate marketers could benefit from WA. I’m excited to checkout your blog series and hope it helps all the beginners to start their journey with the safe and legit program, that’s WA.

    • Hi Sethu,

      I am so glad you like the breakdown of the video series and I think it definitely will assist people to make an informed decision on Wealthy Affiliate .  It gives a true insight into what this great program is all about.  Thanks for stopping by and letting me know you like them!

      Cheers, Sharon

  2. Happy 4th Sharon,
    Love your site, Just watching the video’s you created gives me such insight to what Wealthy Affiliate is all about.
    Reading through your articles was an easy read for me, not like some other sites that leave you wondering what was trying to be said.
    I am a Huge fan of Wealthy affiliate and have been for some time now. You make some really good points.
    I have a question. Does adding video’s to a site help with rankings?
    Again, Thanks for all the great information and all my best to your success.

    • Hi Doug,

      And Happy 4th to you too! 

      Yes, I am a huge fan too and glad you did enjoy the article.  I do try to make sure my reader is well informed after they have been on my site!   Yes, video does help with rankings.  Google having bought Youtube tends to favor posts with video. Plus if you do a video, you know have more content “out there” and on Youtube to be found also. 

      Thanks for stopping by and I wish you all the best too!
      Cheers, Sharon

  3. Awesome post! I agree, having an online business is the best way to go because of the costs of a traditional brick and mortar business. And Wealthy Affiliate is the place to go for really helpful step by step training and the most up-to-date tools.

    Like you said, each member has a voice and can post information or questions that other members can contribute to. It’s an amazing community of people from all over the world.

    I’ve been with WA for just a few months and have learned so much. Thank you for providing such helpful information and for promoting a trustworthy opportunity!


    • Hi Weston,

      thanks for your comments and stopping by.  It is a great community of people and a fantastic place to be!  Wealthy Affiliate is something I wish I had of found a lot earlier in my online ventures, but better late than never.  I am loving creating my websites and hope you are too!

  4. Hi Sharon, I have just followed your links to join and take a free ride, I must say that I am very sceptic about online businesses, I have always wanted to join some kind of online trading, I got to your blog through one of those, I always look at reviews first and they always end up being either a scam or a pay to work type of thing, thank you for your review and hope to talk to you again.


    • Hi Henrique,
      Thats great. The good thing is you can come in and check us out for free for as long as you want. So you do not have to be sceptical at all. This is not online trading, however it definitely is a way to build a profitable online business with your own website. Our step by step training will assist you to do that. Glad you joined, I will see you on the inside – get in here to Wealthy Affiliate if you havent already! It truly is a great place to be as you will soon realise!
      Cheers, Sharon
