My Background in Affiliate Marketing
Very briefly, one day after looking around the internet for many months to try to understand how to make a productive website I came across a very odd term. It was long-tailed words.
Actually I think it was the name of a website but I clicked on it and came across a very interesting blog about websites and there was an ad on it that said How would you like to make a website like this one?
After checking it out, I found Wealthy Affiliate.
Is a company founded by two young men when they were college students. At that time all they wanted to do was to make a few extra dollars but as they got better at what they did others asked for help and the seeds for a company were sown.
Thru the years the company that Kyle and Carson created with that simple beginning has grown and grown where today it is an up to date training platform for anyone who wants build a business online.
Is it for real?
Absolutely, these 2 guys are very honest and ethical along with anyone else I have had contact with who work for the company.
