When people ask me how to become successful with affiliate marketing, I tell them they need to join Wealthy Affiliate. I know with 100% confidence that I am sending them to the best community of entrepreneurs who will give them the best training possible.

So this article is for people who want success online and are tired of struggling.

But first, I wanted to share my wealthy affiliate success story. I want you to see how a very average person can learn affiliate marketing and create income from the comfort of home.

My Name is Wendy Krick and here is my story…

My story actually starts out with a lot of failure and frustration. But I believe that I needed to experience lots of failures in order for me to find the drive to “do the work” needed for success.

In 2006, I found myself in an unbelievable situation. We had three very sick children who were suffering from toxins that were in the air of our home. Long story short our home was making us sick. We had toxic mold. (But that is another story for another day). 

I was also under incredible stress from a 60 hour a week, full time job, which was an hour and a half drive daily. And I hated it!

I really Hated It!

So I quit. I really just wanted to be home with my babies. So that is what I did.

And in 2007 after things got back to normal I decided to start a home business rather than going back to work.

This is where I learned that there are lots of scams on the internet. Over the next year or so I tried many things. And I lost hundreds of dollars from companies that said you need to invest to make money. I know now this is a lie.

Finally, In early 2009, I realized that affiliate marketing would be the best way to go. And in September I discovered Wealthy Affiliate. Boy I wish I found them earlier. But I suppose everything happens for a reason.

Now 3 years later I am making what I like to call mailbox money! I am not rich yet, but I do earn $35 or more a day from the internet. And I have Kyle and Carson, the owners of Wealthy Affiliate to thank for educating me. I would not be getting results online without the training at Wealthy Affiliate.

So let me ask you a question. Why are you here?

If you are like me you want to make money online but you don’t know where to start or maybe you are tired of being burned by all the so called guru’s who really just want your money. I can relate to that.

Part of the reason why I created this blog was to help prevent people from giving their hard earned money away to scam artists. I want to hopefully steer you in the right direction and help you to set some real results online.

I recommend Wealthy Affiliate for anyone who is struggling to make money online. Or someone who knows the basics but wants to learn how to take it to the next level. Even if you just want to learn how to build a website you should read on.

So lets talk about what Wealthy Affiliate has to offer…

    Excellent review and it you are spot on with your insights into Wealthy Affiliate. I have been a member for 2 years now at Wealthy Affiliate and I couldn’t be more happy with the service Kyle and Carson offer there.

    I like many others was also subject to the scammers (or gurus, whatever they are called) and lost of bunch of my families money before I finally came across the only legitimate experience I have had yet, WA. It is really awesome and it is a place I hang out each and every. Although I am not making as much money as I want yet (just under $4,000 per month), I am getting there. It sounds like you are getting there as well.

    On point review here and I love your “mailbox money” that is pretty much what it comes down to when you figure out how to do this!

    • Wendy Krick says:

      Thanks for taking the time to read my review and comment Jenny. It looks like you are doing really well. Affiliate Marketing is so much fun.

  2. Labman says:

    I hope you have resolved you mold problem and were able to get your family healthy again.

    I completely agree with you that WA is the place to learn how to make a living on the internet. Just being able to learn in a spam free environment is the best part. The training is just incredible too.

    Kyle and Carson keep updating the site as well so if a Google update encroaches on the members earnings, we have a solution at hand almost immediately. Timely training is a huge advantage.

    Thanks for the review.

    • Wendy Krick says:

      Yes we have all re-cooperated since then and all is well. And yes, I am blessed to have found WA. The training is incredible. Thanks for stopping by.

    I can relate to driving a very long distance to a lousy job that is the last place you want to be for the majority of most days. There’s nothing worse than having to drag your self out of your bed to rush to a place that pays you a nickle for a hard days work. I find your story inspiring as a beginning internet anything!, let alone marketer. I’m curious about how much computer skills you started with?, I’m a complete novice!

    • Wendy Krick says:

      Todd I actually knew very little. Seriously! I had to have someone explain to me what a hyperlink was and I didn’t know how to do copy paste. So when I tell people I had no skills I mean it. LOL! But it goes to show that any dummy can make money online. So don’t ever be embarrassed to ask for help. Remember everyone had to learn the same thing at one point.

      And yes, I hated the long drive. Now I am only a few minutes from my day job, but I am hoping to say bye bye to that job in the next year or so. Maybe sooner. Who knows.

  4. Rick Jantz says:

    Hi Wendy. I really like the approach you took with your review. Very personal and shows why you are able to recommend Wealthy Affiliate. Your phrase “mailbox money”, excellent. This is a nice, clean, and professional site. Great job.

    • Wendy Krick says:

      Thanks Rick for the very nice comment. I appreciate it.

  5. Daniel Euergetes says:

    You were suffering from the black mold! It’s bad stuff! I’m glad you found out what was wrong, and on top of this, got out of employment! That’s another killer … of family life. Sometimes I wonder which one is worse, the mold or the job! Both hurt!

    Anyway great review! I’d join up if I wasn’t already a member : )

    • Wendy Krick says:

      Thanks for the comment. I’m glad you are a member of Wealthy affiliate because it is so much fun to learn together! Thanks for stopping by my site.

  6. Justin Craddock says:

    What is your website that is earning you your most profits? You never really said HOW you earn $35 a day, you just said 3 years later you became successful. I’m curious because I feel like I am in the same position you were with starting up and I’m interested in how you started making profit.

    • Wendy Krick says:

      Hi Justin. I have several different niche websites and I earn from several different affiliates programs. So it is a combination of many. It really is about taking action every day. There isn’t any magic trick. It really is about content. The more quality content you have out there the more you will get seen and therefore be more likely to make money. So focus on keyword research and writing quality posts 300 words or more often and you will begin to see results.

  7. Sherrie says:

    Just keep moving forward. Thanks for the encouragement.

    • Wendy Krick says:

      Thanks Sherrie. And yes, WA Rocks! I love all the wonderful friendships I have made as well. Don’t get discouraged. If you ever need help feel free to contact me.

    Hi Wendy! Your website looks great! I have participated in various aspects of business…administration, traditional brick & mortar and online. Regardless, online marketing has always been a piece of the puzzle I never really wanted to deal with because of all the components involved. That changed when I joined Wealthy Affiliates! The lesson make is so much simpler!
    Wealthy Affiliates is an awesome community! I have learned so much in a very short amount of time. The community is very responsive, active, and informative. They definitely set themselves apart!

    • Wendy Krick says:

      I agree with you 100% Kim. I’m glad you found the community and are having success.

    Hi wendy,
    I just started using Wealthy Affiliate, I was not sure about the average earnings per day until I read your review, and I am kind of demotivated now, because if after putting in so much time and effort of 3 years, an earning of $35/day is actually very less.
    I joined the Wealthy Affiliate because I want to be able to make my heavy university fees that is due in February and as I am an international student, I have to pay triple the normal fees of a local student, I am kind of upset to know the average earnings from this program even after you are earning couple of niche websites.

    • Wendy Krick says:

      It is different for everyone. Considering I only invest a few hours a week I think $1000 a month of free cash isn’t bad. And many people earn much quicker than this. My goal of this website is to show people that anyone, even a very average middle aged lady like me can create income from home. It isn’t
      get rich quick”. But if you are able to invest time, you can really create an amazing income.
