If you have been through the Self Made Newbie Free Training then you are probably already “in the know” of how to draw viewers to your site. This video takes a piece out of the CEC (Create Engage Capture) model. Namely the Engage stage, which is the stage you need to be spending the most time.
If you haven’t taken the Training, I suggest you do. These tips will simply make more sense to you. You need to learn the fundamentals of blogging before these small tips and tweaks make sense.
I haven’t looked into Pinterest in a really long time. I think I used it when I first started learning to create blogs back in 2015. Even then it was more of just a place to paste my content.
I never really engaged with it or tried to use it properly.
Late last year however, after reading a post of the top up and coming social media platforms, I saw it on the list. Like a long lost cousin I’d met once, but had since forgotten.
And they’d gotten big, and where growing!
That’s what Pinterest is in my eyes. But eyes can be deceiving. Actually, Pinterest has always been growing and is a massive tool used by a predominantly female demographic. Not only that, but a female demographic that like to BUY things. According to the stats.
A growing platform with 250 million users, most of whom are women who love to spend money. Need I say more?
Introducing Pinflux 2
Now like many of you, I have neither the time or patience right now to go learning another social media platform and start trying to stay up to date on it with.
But, you don’t have to…
This awesome tool I got to try out automates Pinterest in every way shape or form you can think of
Automated Following & Unfollowing
It essentially turns your Pinterest into a Monsterous content creating machine, while following people in your target audience niche groups, and getting followed back.
And because of the automation rate of your content creation, when those people you follow visit your page they see a monsterous Pinterest account that they can’t believe they didn’t know about.
For the Math Majors out there, that equates to: YOU = More Traffic

Welcome to this Wealthy Affiliate Review. A question I get asked a lot is, “Does Wealthy Affiliate really work?” and as a long time user, I aim to answer that question for you by visually outlining the Pro’s & Con’s and talk about my own experience with the platform.
I started using Wealthy Affiliate around 5 years ago. Admittedly, it was the product that really allowed me to start turning things around in my make-money-online journey. It was due to Wealthy Affiliate that I made my first ever money online ($0.07 for a book purchase on Amazon). Sounds minuscule, I know…
But a year down the line, I owe Wealthy Affiliate for my first ever $100 day, $1,000 month, and then $1,000 day.
I remember that initially, it took me a while to sign up because I was skeptical of everything. I’d wasted money on so many questions and products that had really just been scams, and not delivered.
Many questions ran through my mind as I starred at the screen wondering whether or not I should Signup.
Is Wealthy Affiliate Worth it? Is Wealthy Affiliate a Scam?
These are common questions that I now get asked from people whenever I bring it up, so I wrote this review in order to answer all of the common questions you may have. Video version below, if you prefer.
Wealthy Affiliate Review – What is Wealthy Affiliate?
Wealthy Affiliate is many things, but primarily it is an online University that teaches you how to go from zero-to-hero in blogging and affiliate marketing. Under that umbrella includes a lot of information however, and Wealthy Affiliate ensures you learn everything in a step by step and easy to understand way.
In short, the training covers everything you need.
Choosing a Profitable Niche
Building a Website via their Amazing 1-Click WordPress Builder
Optimizing your Website using SEO tips and tools of a the trade
How to’s on Building out your site and producing content
How to Effectively and Consistently Generate Income from your Website
A lot of people are skeptical when they see something that promises you passive income, and they should be.
However, Wealthy Affiliate stands out in a number of ways that sets it apart from other Make-Money-Online products in that it advocates hard-work and it isn’t a get-rick-quick product like you may have come across before.
The creators of Wealthy Affiliate ONLY operate Wealthy Affiliate. They have been since roughly 2007. In fact, one thing you’ll immediately notice is the amount of attention, care, and functionality that has been put into the platform to ensure users succeed.
The creators Kyle and Carson are also generally not too hard to get intouch with if you have questions you wish to ask them directly.
This among other things is likely what triggered me to sign up. It was a product with a lot of care and attention put into it, despite a bit of a cheesy name, i’ll admit.
Reason 1: The Community
Unlike 99% of make money online courses or “universities,” Wealthy Affiliate is massive and boasts over 200,000 members. It’s almost like its very own money making Social Media platform in that sense.
Many people advocate the community aspect of Wealthy Affiliate and I have to as well. The community is incredible. Upon joining, I had random people messaging me out of nowhere asking if I needed help. Every time I posted on my personal Wealthy Affiliate blog regarding milestones I’d hit, people would respond and give praise and words of encouragement.
The community on Wealthy Affiliate is simply second to none. Many people even go out of their way on a weekly basis to offer continued training modules that you can join in on and learn a tonne. Some of these people really have their finger on the pulse so you can be first-in when learning about new technologies, or tips and tricks of how to make more money.
Reason 2: Training
When I first started trying to make a living online, I remember one of the first things I did was believe the hype behind products that were coming out constantly and promising new flashy ways of making money.
They ALL failed.
Enjoying this Wealthy Affiliate review but want to sign up already? Click Here!
Most of them failed because they were garbage, scammy, products. But, some of them failed because I had no idea how to really utilize or use them due to the fact that I had no fundamental understanding over how to sell, make money, market, use affiliate products effectively, blogging, SEO, nothing!
Wealthy Affiliate’s training is THEE best training I’ve come across online for making money. It’s been refined over the last decade, and literally takes you from Step zero all the way to the holy grail of creating a business and reaching that holy grail of passive income online.
There is so much hype out there and products flying around promising you the world. At the end of the day, like with anything, you need training and Wealthy Affiliate’s training delivers hard!
Reason 3: Functionality
Functionality wise, it’s almost criminally easy to set up everything and start building a business on Wealthy Affiliate. Here are just a few things that have been implemented over the years to help you out.
Website Builder & Hosting
Wealthy Affiliate trains you on how to build a WordPress site as the basis of your online business. Finding hosting, and setting that up with the right plugins etc can be a daunting task in and of itself.
The programmers behind Wealthy Affiliate though have made that a none-issue. Want to create a new website? Simply click on their website builder and it builds your WordPress site with theme and plugins all included in under 20 seconds. Very cool!
Wealthy Affiliate’s hosting is also extremely quick.
The feedback system is a really good way to make sure you’re heading in the right direction and get some objective advice from peers. When you join Wealthy Affiliate, it’s normal to hit the training first so you can take a step in the right direction, but as you’re going through it, it’s good to be able to get a second opinion.
The Feedback system allows you to get advice from other members on your website in any area you like. The design, the content, or just general advice. The system works in an altruistic way, so whenever you want advice, you simply give advice to another site that is automatically sent to you, and you earn credits which you can then use to get advice on your own site.
Extremely helpful, and not found on any other Affiliate Training online currently.
Another similar system is the comments system. Leave a comment on someone else’s site to earn credits that you can then spend on people putting comments on your site. This is incredible as it means that as soon as you make a post, you can have comments on your content straight away. Google takes this to mean you have engaging content, which is extremely good for ranking your website.
Reason 4: FREE Keyword Planner
Keyword planners are an absolutely essential part of running an online business. Before producing any content, you need to know how much competition is out there with the same content, so you don’t waste your time creating content based on keywords that are too overly competitive to rank for.
Google Keyword planner is free, but it doesn’t give you the numbers you need. Other Keyword planners cost $30-$50 a month on average, but in WealthyAffiliate you get FREE Access to Jaaxy, which is easily my favourite keyword tool.
Simple to use and gives you the exact date you want.
One fairly annoying task for traditional Affiliate Marketing was searching for affiliate products and decent affiliate networks that you could find that aligned with your niche and you could sell on your site.
Wealthy Affiliate takes the tedious task of searching for Affiliate Networks and products by providing a curated catalogue of products in any niche and from a number of networks that you can see and use simply by entering in a search term, such as Yoga, Paleo, Baseball cards, or whatever niche you are in.
There are affiliate products you can promote in any niche, believe me, and Wealthy Affiliate makes finding them a no-brainer. This functionality was introduced fairly recently, and it’s saved me SO much time and effort.
To Wrap Up this Wealthy Affiliate Review…
Despite covering my top 5 things, I still feel I haven’t done this Wealthy Affiliate review justice. It feels like it’s more than the 5 things I’ve listed, and it is.
What it really represents for me is the thing that gave me clarity, didn’t steal my money, and actually offered me something that worked. I’ll never remember my first sale of $8.47.
The excitement I felt knowing that it was working, like it worked for other friends I’d made in the community. We were all winning together, and that feeling was, and still is, truly the best.
I’ve tried many Affiliate and Ecom training platforms out there, and none of them come close to Wealthy Affiliate. You immediately sense not only the money, but the care that has gone into creating a platform that is accessible to absolotly any person of any age or level or experience.
As a Self Made Newbie viewer and reader, I’d also like to show you my appreciation for visiting and reading through my review, as a thank you I have a few Goodies for you that will be activated when you check out WealthyAffiliate via the link below.

With the video content on the rise, and being boosted and prioritized on all major Social Media platforms, I decided to do a review of some neat software that was just released. Create by Vidello is a video editing software that allows you to quickly create beautiful videos on the fly at a fraction of the cost of well-known solutions, such as Final Cut, Adobe Premier or other more expensive options.
For those of you tired of that fact that most software companies now are switching to a monthly subscription model. Create is what you probably want to buy.
It’s a one time $47 (If you get in early) payment that will get you full access to the stand alone video software.
I know right? Reasonably priced software that you only need to pay once for. Feels just like the good old days!
Again, if you’re looking to create video content quickly for Social Media like the top influencers on Instagram are doing. Definitely check this out.
A question that got posed to me recently was how long does it take to make money blogging. And, if it was possible to make money within 3 months.
I could hit you with the fluffy answer that success and monetary goals are different to each person. Instead, let’s just assume you mean enough money to quit your job and to be financially free.
Since, that’s what you mean…
How Long Does it Take To Make Money Blogging? Well, You get out what you put in…
The answer for me is still similar to, “How long is a piece of string.” The answer you seek is going to be determined by one simple factor. What are you putting into it?
If you want be a blogger who gets paid from creating profitable blogs you have to do the work. There are no two ways about it.
Doing one post a week for a year, it’ll take you longer than someone who does a post a day for a year. That’s assuming you are both using correct keyword research, and are setting up your blogs properly with SEO optimization.
What about in 3 months?
It’s uncommon for someone to make this kind of money that quickly. Within the first 3 months, Google isn’t even taking your site seriously to be honest.
From my experience with blogging and even YouTube channel creation, something seems to happen around the 2-3 month mark. It’s almost as if Google has decides to take you seriously after that time. It realizes your blog is updated so often that it isn’t just some new years resolution pet project someone has decided to do, and then leave after a few weeks.
Carrying on from that, I would say that; you goal shouldn’t be to make money in 3 months. It should be; can you remain consistent for 3 months?
3 months is a funny old time period. It’s how long it takes to build traction on blogging. How long it takes to start losing significant weight. It’s even often the time you decided if someone you’re dating is worth carrying on dating in the long term.
The 3 month hurdle seems to be everywhere, and it’s going to be one of many hurdles. One thing I know about that hurdle though is that it’s not a hurdle where you should hope to be celebrating.
It’s simply way to soon.
It should be a target that you see as a goal to reach. Simply because very few people can last 3 months with a new endeavour of any sort.
Did you choose the correct niche?
One thing I would ask yourself is if you have been creating content and your problem is that you think you’re running out of ideas for content, then perhaps another visit to the first quarter of this post might serve you well.
Remember! The goal is to start blogs around things you’re passionate about. Topics you can talk about easily, not what you think is going to be profitable.
Any niche can be profitable.
So, How long does it take to make money online blogging?
In the book, “Knowing oneself,” the author and Harvard Professor, Peter Drucker talks about an idea known as feedback analysis. This is when you run experiments on ideas your have for 12-18 months and then stop and evaluate, with humility.
I would follow this advice, and try to remain somewhat emotionally detached from your blog.
Aim to see decent monetary returns around the 12-18 month mark. And by 12-18 months I don’t mean 1 post a week. I mean working every day.
If you are getting close to the year mark and you’re stumped with what to write about, you kind of hate your topic, or you realize you aren’t that good at what you’re doing? Perhaps then it’s time to take stock and pivot onto something else.
If you want extra help I suggest going to my homepage, here – and clicking on the “Stare Here” link. After you complete that there is more training to be had at the bottom of the page! ALL FREE.

In this video we look at how to be more efficient. I offer a dangerously simple time management tip that will increase your productive efficiency on a day to day basis.
Whether you’re a university student or working and struggling to find time for your side hustle, I’ve personally found that one key to efficiency is the creation of actionable lists. Ones you continue to complete on a day to day basis until they become habits.
The beauty of this method is as you develop your habits, which scientists say takes roughly 68 days, you start to become a lot more efficient at completing them. This enables you to free up more time and get even more things done.
In my opinion this time management tip IS the definition of “working smart.”
Think about what you want to accomplish in any given day, whether it’s a large singular task like a video. Maybe it’s also something you are going to chip away at over time, like online course or digital product creation.
Open Evernote or other Note taking app. Make 3 Headings. Morning, Day, Evening. Then, under each heading write what you plan to do during those pockets of time.
In my case, I have a few hours in the morning, and a few hours at night. I produce rough content, both video and written in the morning, and in the evening I edit and clean everything up.
In the day time I will engage with my audience and offer help to people. This is during commuting hours or whenever I find myself idle. Small pockets of time, 1 minute here, 5 minutes there can really add up throughout the day.
Check off all of the things you have completed before going to bed. If you didn’t finish everything, try and reflect on what you need to move around and what you need to give priority to or moved to split days.
