Hi and welcome to the “Affilination” affiliate marketing website. You may ask yourself “why the crazy name ‘Affilination’ ?” stick around and I’ll explain everything.
Let’s Take a Step Back
Being an affiliate is something very near and dear to me. Simply because it was first the line of work that I was actually interested in. I am the type of person that can lose interest in something after 2 seconds if it doesn’t interest me, which is sad but true. However, when I first found out about affiliate marketing (and Wealth Affiliate in particular),I was hooked, and unfortunately for you, I don’t have one of those amazing “rags-to-riches” background stories to tell you about…simply because I was still a teenager when I started at Wealthy Affiliate and have grown ever since.
Growing up, I was always a big dreamer and before I was introduced to affiliate marketing at Wealthy Affiliate, I was running around like a headless chicken trying to find great side hustle ideas and occupations that would make me rich QUICKLY(emphasis on QUICKLY).
I can still remember, I was on holiday at the time and in a space of two weeks, I lost count of the amount of gigs I tried online. From online surveys to low ticket affiliate programmes, I tried and tried and tried and to be frank, not one of those ideas actually worked because at the time, I didn’t have a huge social media or online following and what made it even more difficult was that I live outside the United States and was still very young. Don’t get me wrong, starting at a young age was a great thing, however, being a teenager that did not earn an income limited my options tremendously because I didn’t have much money to buy and sell products or use paid advertising to promote other affiliate programmes.
So after doing my research and finding Wealthy Affiliate, I joined the 7-day free trial, completed the “Getting Started course” within a day or two and then ended up leaving the site to go and “actually make money”.lucky for me I failed pretty quick and miserably which was the turning point in my career.
I finally realized that getting rich is not a 1-day formula. It’s a dedication that could take anywhere from a few months to years (all depending on the effort you put in).This is when I realized that Wealthy Affiliate’s financial strategy was long, but pretty secure. This is when I returned and now, hungrier than ever to start the journey of a lifetime, I managed to scrape together $19 , subscribe to the premium package, continue the training and the rest is history…
So Why “Affilination”?
Its simple. You more than likely have already gathered that “Affilination” is a combination of the words “Affiliate” and “Nation” and this is exactly what we are. Here, and over at Wealthy Affiliate, we are one nation. We are all entrepreneurs looking for a better financial life and let me ask you…what’s the simple meaning of the word “nation”? well basically a nation is a community of people formed on the basis of a common language. And what’s our common language? Affiliate Marketing.
Now, What’s In It For You?
One who succeeds is one who never stops learning. So don’t be scared if our language is foreign to you and don’t be aarogant if you think you are already a master of it because trust me…our nation never stops building !
Let’s help each other to lay the foundation and construct our future, TOGETHER !
