I was originally going to write this post yesterday, but I had so many things going on that I didn’t get the chance to write it. For those of you who visit my site on a regular basis know that I frequently talk about how much Wealthy Affiliate has helped me build my business and I have also shared the success I have had with them on this website.
Today I’m not going to talk much about my success, but more about how WA got started and how much they have evolved in the 10 years they have been online.
For those of you who don’t know what WA is, you can check out my thorough and in-depth review on them here.
How Was The Idea Of WA Put Into Action
It all started as a simple keyword list site back on Sept 10, 2005. Kyle and Carson actually met in college and had computer science class together. Like many of us, back then these were just 2 broke college students who had little to NO experience in making money on the internet.
As a matter of fact, Kyle was so broke at the time that he had to use his girlfriend’s credit card to get his business started. He had a $5 daily budget that he used to get the first bit of traffic through PPC (Pay Per Click)
Once they started getting more members joining, the requests started pouring in and they took all this into consideration. Over the years, they have built a community based on what their customers want vs their own self interest.
There is one thing that both Kyle and Carson have in common and that’s a huge passion for helping other people be successful online. They don’t hold anything back when it comes to showing you exactly the steps that they have taken to become so successful online. When you Join WA you are provided with the exact same blueprint that they have used to reach any level of success that you want online.
How Did WA Go From A Simple Keyword List Site To An All Inclusive Online Business Community?
I think a lot of this has to do with the fact that Kyle and Carson are so down to earth and actually take the time to listen to what their members want. Like I said above, over the years they have managed to keep the members interests in mind. Each year they take a select number of these requests and make them a reality for everyone.
Unlike about 99% of other so called online opportunities that focus more on showing you all of their money and fancy sports cars, WA prides itself in remaining humble. They keep their focus on providing YOU with quality training that walks you through the exact steps they have followed to build an online business.
Each year they are continuously finding ways to enhance your experience and always looking for ways to improve the community for everyone.
In the close to 3 years that I have been a member, I keep saying there is no way they can improve on something that’s already awesome. Every year they seem to outdo themselves and prove me wrong.
They are also firm believers in making their incredible platform affordable for everyone. They started out with the initial price of 29.99 a month back in 2005. To this day, they have stayed true to that principle by offering everything you need to build, run, and maintain an online business for less than the price of a cup of coffee a day.
In October of 2013, they made the decision to let absolutely anyone try out everything they had to offer before even thinking about paying for it.
This is when the Starter Membership package was created which includes everything you need to get started online at no cost to you. They are so confident that their training works that they let you try it out for FREE. There are very few companies online that can make that kind of statement.
As They Move Into The Next 10 Years Their Focus Remains On Helping You Become Successful
According to statistics, most businesses fail after the first 5 years and over 70% fail by the 10-year mark. Most work from home/make money online products go under in much less time than this. Unlike other companies whose main focus is to drain your bank account and leave you with nothing, WA focuses on ways to actually help you make more money. They do this by offering you a step by step proven blueprint with detailed instructions on how to build a long term business that will continue to evolve over time.
They have definitely come a long ways in the past 10 years and I feel like the best is still to come. I can’t wait to see what they have in store for us in the next 10 years. I hope this post has given you an inside look as too how a small keyword list site has evolved into the awesome online community that it is today.
I would love to hear about some of your experiences, success stories, or any questions you may have about WA. Feel free to leave them for me below and I will get back to you right away.
