Beginners, Rookies, Newbies, Greenhorns?
People that happen to stumble upon Wealthy Affiliate often ask…
Is Wealthy Affiliate for beginners?
Let me answer that with a resounding booming reverberating …
YES. Yes, it is!
Do you need previous experience in affiliate marketing?
No, not at all. It would help but is not necessary at all.
As I can say this from personal experience. I knew nothing about effective affiliate marketing, creating a proper website, drawing traffic through SEO, using Google Adwords and much more. I am no expert by no means, and I continue to learn every day.
But…I learned all this here at Wealthy Affiliate. I was as green as they come, but with effort and time, I launched into the unknown world of affiliate marketing. Full steam ahead baby!
I was for sure intimidated by the technical aspects of it all and the amount of writing involved. I bet if we could go back in time, I had the look of fear and caution in my eyes. It was kind of scary, everything little thing I did I thought I would wreck my website or the daunting amount of knowledge required to know. I am so glad I took the plunge now.
If it’s not a little bit scary it usually not worth doing.
Hindsight is always right, but at the time fear of being taken advantage of and the amount of information to digest was prevalent. If you want to read about my concerns about joining Wealthy Affiliate you can read about them here, maybe you can relate and help dispel some of your fears. That is basically why I wrote it. Concerns & Fears of Joining Wealthy Affiliate.
It is not only for beginners, but Wealthy Affiliate is thoughtfully designed and structured for beginners to flourish. We all know beginners in any field have a thousand questions, and affiliate marketing is no different. Maybe affiliate marketing has more questions than most fields, who knows.
But I know from experience, it can be overwhelming at first, from the sheer volume of information.
The best reason why Wealthy Affiliate is for beginners is the community here. I write about this all the time, the community at Wealthy Affiliate is second to none. It helps me get over fears of joining, helped me with countless questions and more importantly with motivation and inspiration.

The Best Training For Beginners
The training…I’m sorry, you will not find a better system out there for affiliate marketing. I know, I looked. This is the meat of the meat and potatoes. The backbone if you will.
Wealthy Affiliate should be thought of as an online school. It’s not static or un-moving, it dynamic. Ever changing and improving. The great part about this is instead of earning a letter grade, and you make money! You make money by implementing what you learn into your business with the proven lesson learned.
They all fall flat compared to WA training, period. I tell you what, and much thought went into the design of this whole system. It was not just thrown together on a whim. Tweaked and alter to what is now, a true leader in the world of training for affiliate marketing.
Oh, and by the way, they are not resting on their laurels. Improvements are always happening, site-wise and with the training. New training is constantly being added and updated daily. So no old material that is out of date.
The Training Courses Rock!

It essentially holds your hand to cross the street of learning affiliate marketing, like a boy scout helping out an old lady across the street.

Affiliate Bootcamp is for if you don’t know what niche you want to create a site for. Simple enough, and don’t worry picking a niche is covered in the training, as it is

Being a novice at WA, you will get the required support to be successful. From multiple sources, the community or the owners.

Often getting it wrong.
