What Does Wealthy Affiliate Do?

WA did a great job with their copy.

Someone over there really understands buyer psychology, desperation, and laziness.

Not particularly all in a negative light, but they definitely play on emotions that noobs have.

There’s this age-old social pressure that exists. The creators of Wealthy Affiliate knew that by having the easiest way to create a website they would get enough people interested in moving forward that the rest would really be a cinch. Make no mistake, they did a great job of doing so and they did it in a way that kept you in the platform and not needing to watch YouTube videos to understand hosting or any of the other technical stuff. The angle that they succeeded at was one of ease, but with that there is some benefit that the user doesn’t gain.

Like anything in life, building a business from scratch is much different than following a template. We all want the template though. We all want a  shortcut to the results we seek. The issue is much more in not having the earned know-how when things change, break, or pivot. I’ll call it CBT moving forward.

It’s similar to having an emergency fund or maybe owning a firearm for in-home security. No you probably won’t need it, but you want to be prepared anyways. You want to know enough to be prepared when things don’t work as planned.

Let me also be clear about another thing, this isn’t for those that are searching for a quick fix to a lack of funds. I’ve been there so I can say it. This route that I’m proposing is for those that want to enter a certain career path in which you become better over the long haul. I eluded to the 2nd David Goggins interview with Joe Rogan yesterday (yes I’m linking it again) and it really stuck with me. You only get to certain levels if you are really in the game, locked in, and willing to accept the reality of what that means.

For instance, it’s much different being a runner and being someone who ran a marathon once. One implies that it’s a part of what you do on a regular basis, the other is a great achievement, but it’s temporary and more a novelty than an actuality of existence. What I really mean is, becoming an affiliate marketer that makes millions isn’t a 3 month, 6 month, 12 month game. We’re talking more like 3yrs+ which really isn’t much considering you get to live the rest of your life as a millionaire. But so many of us want ONLY enough to get us to the goal. Why would you accept that? Why would you refuse to further your training? SEO Affiliate Domination spilled over to many aspects of my life and therefore my approach changed completely. WA is solid, but they aren’t necessarily seeking those that really want to learn in order to truly understand, then apply. WA is looking for impatient newbies that want an entire system to work on part-time and without much research needed, just implementation. This represents 2 very different people and I’ve got to be honest, I don’t think anyone that’s not willing to dig will get to a high income in the Affiliate space.
