What’s in it for me?


The Aussie version!!

By promoting the products or services you will earn a commission for your efforts when the visitor comes to your website and decides to purchase via your links.

It’s as simple as that.


What do you need to become an Affiliate Marketer?


There are various factors you need the first is called a Niche.

This will be something specific to the needs of a group of people.


A quick example:

You want a website based on losing weight.

Now losing weight is a very broad option and in the online world, the competition is too large as you will often be competing with the large business corporations with money to burn to advertise their weight loss.

To overcome this, you create a niche that is as I stated earlier” specific to the needs of a group of people”.

Say for example you focus on “How to lose weight for the over 50’s” you can even break that down and focus on Women over 50 or men over 50.

This is selecting a niche that is “specific to the needs of a group of people”.

For further reading regarding a niche, you can see “The Niche Definition” which will go into further detail.

Domain Name


Once you have decided on a Niche you need to either purchase your own domain Namecheap is where mine came from you can get them for around $10 us don’t go over $12 this will be for a year’s registration and renewable each year.

The other option if you are not sure which for me would be my suggestion to you.

That is to join an Affiliate Website as a free member this is the same place I am with but I am a Premium member.

Here you can start off with 2 free websites create a domain name and go from there I will explain more about the free membership option shortly.

As for the domain name it is a good idea to keep it short and without hyphen or dashes etc. It is best if the niche you have chosen is incorporated within the domain name.

Using the above earlier example you could call your domain name if available weightlossformen.com or weightlossforwomen.com get the drift?

Choosing your domain name is very important to get it right the first time as once selected and accepted you cannot change the domain name that is why is so important to include your niche within the We domain name.

Now did you notice when I gave the domain name example for both men and women I didn’t include the 50’s part?

This is because the domain name can be a little broader than the niche as it gives you the option to expand later as you grow and develop a stronger foundation for your website.

However, it doesn’t work the other way around with a selective niche.




If you want to be successful you need to have the proper training not only on what to do but how to build a solid foundation to your website that stands the tests of time.

Remember the story of the three little pigs with the straw, wood and brick house?

Well the training will teach you to not only avoid having your house blows down from scammers or Wolves with their negative attempts but you will learn to not build just a brick house but reinforce as a double brick house and perhaps later as you grow down the track change that double brick house by building a skyscraper instead.

Here the training you will receive will show you the Right way with Online or Affiliate marketing.

Earlier I stated you can get 2 free websites to get you going. Well, this is where you can get them.

This is why I stated rather than purchasing off the bat with your very own domain name (you can if you want or have some experience already but for a newbie, this is my recommendation for you).

Here you can join for free as a Starter Member and try it out for free for 7 days with the Premium member options to see what it is like should you wish to go forward.

In the meantime, you will get 2 free websites to get your going plus there are 2 free courses which will show you how to create your niche and domain name as mention above as well as how to open your website and have it live within 30 secs.

Another great thing about taking the free website to build upon is that as you gain confidence with you Niche and you build your website you can always purchase your own domain website and as a premium member, you can transfer the free website you built over to your very own domain at no cost to you. 


With the training lesson, there are 10 lessons in each of the two free courses you get along with support from over 10,000’s of thousands of members who are only too willing to help and get your going.


Online Entrepreneur Certifiction Level 1 Course

Remember, we all starter as newbies once some come with experience others such as myself with no online or website experience at all I had my website running within the first week but I also took the option to become a premium member but that is your choice no way will be pushing you to do so.

Should you take the option to join for free I will be there to welcome along with the founders.

All you need to do if you wish to become a free starter member is fill out the short form such as creating your username your email etc. and within minutes you are a free member.

The next step will be to create a profile such as who you are and a bit about yourself just like any other profile on social media.

This helps other members to know who they are talking to and helping should you need further advice or have questions later on.

You can start straight away with the first course called “Getting Started”. Kyle one of the founders will go through the 10 training videos in your first of two free courses.

If you would like to know the difference between starter and premium membership this is my No 1 recommended training program where you can learn more and make up your mind.

“Wealthy Affiliate Gets Naked For All To See”

Just to let you know the caliber of people you will meet here.

We have members all over the world some a teenagers wanting to have that early start to succeed in life some are working part-time until they get their feet off the ground many are also retired and want to join and earn some extra money to supplement their finance.

Wouldn’t you want to do the same these are ordinary folks but more than extraordinary members as you will feel like you found a new family?


Please note this very important message:


This is not I repeat not a quick rich scheme.

You won’t be making within the first weeks of starting, there are no promises of earning thousands of dollars with the month and you won’t’ be a millionaire overnight and most likely not by the end of the year. You will need to work for it.

That is reserved the rip off artist I call “Wolves in Sheep’s Clothing”. Beware of Scammers

When I say work for it. This will be about creating your website from scratch, creating content and this part is an ongoing work in progress.

You will need to learn how to do various methods to improve your website for the Big Search Engines such a Google (being the main one) with Yahoo/Bing follow by other smaller search engines as well.

It can take some time but if you work on achieving those goals you have, it can be quite rewarding down the line.

I want to know this so you don’t come in full steam ahead expecting to quit your day job by the end of the month.

Or start planning your long holidays, it doesn’t happen like that and if someone tells you otherwise online or in person walk away or change the website you are looking at as they are lying to you.

They will be the scammers who plan on ripping you off believe me they are very good at it and many have the gift of the gab but play dirty with you as their sheep who will feed you BS keep at it until you believe them and give your money away.

This is why I started as a newbie if you are not sure if this is right for you then join for free and you have a good 7 days to make up your mind.

If you don’t want to continue that’s the end of it.

If you want to be serious about going forward in your life then this is the place to be and learn how to earn and grow.

In the meantime during your first 7 days and even after if you continue you have support from me and thousands of other members along the way.


No Scammers Welcome

Once in a while someone joins and tries to scam other members.

We are on the alert for such people and report them ASAP.

If found to be scammers they are kicked out and banned for good.

We believe in a safe environment.


Successful affiliates


I know many people who have been working online with affiliate marketing for 5 or 6 years as their full-time occupation and are living a comfortable and successful life.

I have been working on this for a short time only (less than a year) but always going forward and achieving results along the way up.

I am not at the same stage as some of my super successful friends but I know that I will be because I want to succeed and as I work my way in reaching my goals I will be highly successful because I believe in myself as so will you.

Now that I mentioned it.


Do you have goals in your life?

Do you have the want to be financially stable with your life for you and your family if you have one?

Have you seriously looked at what your life is like and how it should be?


“You are Successful”.


As you learn the right way know that as you become more successful as an affiliate you can get to the point where you will become your own boss and be able to work your own hours while working from home.

Think of petrol and money saved per week by not driving to work day in day out.

This alone will be more than enough to cover your premium membership should you take the option.

I am not holding back on the truth as I don’t want to see Wannabes but prefer to help the ones who truly want success in their life if that is you then welcome, if not I wish you every success in your life.

This is the truth, not that scam of earning quick money and be deceived.

So if you expect the fake quick money this is not for you.

If you believe in wanting to achieve your goals in life and you decide to make it work then this is your opportunity to take now.

There are three basic options to take.


The choice is yours to take and I make no promises.


These are your options


1.  If you want to succeed and learn to create your own website, learn how to earn and grow along the way and build a solid foundation with the right support and training. I can help you along the way and you will receive the best training in the world with my No 1 recommended program as mentioned above.


2. If you wish to follow the scammers and their fake promises and think of making the quick money good luck but you will most likely fail and lose money in the process. So don’t say I didn’t’ warn you but you are always welcome to come back here and take Option 1


3. The other choice is to continue to work for someone else for the rest of your life so they can become rich while you have your job taking their orders and keep traveling to work day in day out I wish you the best yet you also are welcome to come and give it a go and join for free.
