Editor’s note: Note that this post is based on Affiliate Bootcamp – Phase 1: Lesson 10 of 10.
This is when your exciting online journey has begun.
Finishing those Bootcamp training courses is an achievement worth celebrating. And you need a big pat on the back for your persistent work.
Why not, when you have resolutely set out on a journey to attain the status of an authority online. You will surely arrive at your destination because you have the underpinnings and the structure set up for a long term and very successful business online.
Rightly, Wealthy Affiliate University is a platform and community you can count on to accompany you on this exciting journey.
Online work is thought to be easy but fraught with perils. But working online can be the opposite: discouraging and relatively scam free.
All you need for a smooth take off, safe flight, and landing without jolts is a guide. And that is the Wealthy Affiliate training program and community. And once you have that, you can concentrate on making an income from Wealthy Affiliate affiliate program alone. An income which could assure you a FULL TIME INCOME. And even more than that.
That is the ultimate goal of Wealthy Affiliate website with the Bootcamp training exercises: to make you successful beyond your expectations. And of course that is exactly what you are going to accomplish. If you give yourself time to achieve success.
Now, what does success look like online? Let’s listen to Kyle, the co-founder of Wealthy Affiliate, give some true perspective of it.
What the VARIOUS TERMS Business Look Like Online
There’s nothing Kyle cherishes in his own journey online and in helping others build successful businesses online than this old Chinese proverb:
“To know the road ahead, ask those coming back.”
We could extrapolate this to mean that if you want to know what the online journey to success is like and what that success itself looks like, then ask someone who has been there.
Kyle has been at this work full time since 2002. By virtue of those years of experience, he surely can offer you an incredible amount of insight into what your journey to success will be like.
But with the Wealthy Affiliate training it is not just Kyle who can do that. Another bootcamp trainer is Carson, the other co-founder of Wealthy Affiliate. You also have an incredible community of people ready to help. This is literally 100,000’s of folks that really “know the road ahead” and whom, of course, you can ask “To know the road ahead.”
This is why Wealthy Affiliate is truly a pay it forward community, one where they all have each other’s best interests at heart.
To offer you some powerful insight INTO the journey, Kyle breaks the journey down into typical timeframes, based on consistent effort and work for you. That is, when can YOU expect to achieve certain goals and success if you really work the materials?

How to Become an Expert in Your Niche
One thing you must never forget is that at Wealthy Affiliate you are building a business. You are learning how to become an authority online.
“You get OUT of your business what you put INTO it,” the course material reminds.
This takes me back to a text in the book Business and Economic English at the Business File Thirteen on the topic of Computers:
“The computer can only do what it is told; it cannot say to itself ‘I wonder what this means?’ Therefore when a computer issues a final demand for payment of a bill of £ 0, it is not the machine that has done something stupid: it is correctly obeying a stupid instruction. … Data must be collected and coded with scrupulous care: computing is subject to the G.I.GO.* principle.”
* Garbage In GarbageOut
Kyle says: “Ask any successful person what is the fundamental reason why they are successful and others are not and they will usually say one of two things. Hard Work or Focus.”
Yes, put mediocre effort into your business and of course you will see mediocre results. Put in little effort and you will see little results. Put in great effort and you’ll see great results.
There’s even a proverb for it. What you reap is what you sow. You cannot sow maize and reap wheat. You can also not sow on a hectare and expect to reap the harvest of ten hectares. And vice versa.
This is good to know just at the start of your promising journey into the profitable online business world. If you listen to the voice of wisdom, through time, you are going to become an authority in this space. Just believe it!
Are You Still a Free WA Member? – Benefits to Going Premium Are HUGE
The completion of Phase 1 of the Bootcamp Course has already laid a good foundation of your business set-up. Like a building with a solid foundation, this is going to be instrumental to building out a long term and very successful business online.
“To know the road ahead, ask those coming back.”
I have been a Wealthy Affiliate premium member since 2015. I have done the Bootcamp training. And I know there is A LOT MORE interesting and useful things left for you to learn to build an authority website. There’s also a whole lot of technology and tools that are really going to benefit you and your business.
These are the reasons why I will encourage you to go premium and continue your Wealthy Affiliate Bootcamp Training.
This is because EVERYTHING you need to reach any level of success online imaginable is included in the Premium membership.
If you liked what you have seen up to this point as a free member, I bet you are certainly going to LOVE what is offered to you as a Premium Member. It only takes a second to upgrade your membership and continue your Wealthy Affiliate bootcamp training.
“There isn’t a more comprehensive, technologically advanced platform in the Internet business industry than Wealthy Affiliate,” Kyle says.
But don’t take his word for it. Experiencing is believing. Come and find out yourself.
Wealthy Affiliate is even by FAR the most cost efficient affiliate marketing training program. They offer you a Premium membership for less than $1 per day if you go yearly (which is offered to you when you become a monthly member).
When you go Premium to continue your Wealthy Affiliate bootcamp training, you unlock the next 6 Levels.

Not ready to go premium yet?
Don’t worry. Only you know what you need in life, and, maybe, when you want it. And that is what you have to do.
If you want to stay on the Starter membership, that is up to you. And there’s nothing wrong with that. It’s your choice. But if you want to go premium and create a long term successful business online, the costs are very nominal. That is, Wealthy Affiliate premium membership is not going to empty your bank account.
Financial Benefit to Going Premium – Double Commissions + Others
When you go Premium you not only continue your Wealthy Affiliate Bootcamp Training. You will also be qualified to get DOUBLE COMMISSIONS.
Premium members get $23.50 recurring for monthly referrals and $175 recurring for yearly referrals. Little drops of water make a mighty ocean. A single sale, over time, can add up to several $1,000’s. And that is what is sweet about recurring commissions.
Moreover, you will also get affiliate credit for all domains that your referrals sell. There’s also a $1 credit for all referrals that set up their profile image/description.
The more referrals you make, the more these amounts add up. And you can use them to finance things like SiteDomains*, SiteComments**, and SiteFeedback***. Or, if you wish, cash them out for real cash and use them on whatever you want.
SiteDomains* Anytime you do keyword research, the Jaaxy tool reveals domains available for sale:
SiteComments** You can request other members to comment on your pages/posts. This gives you insight into your content and also helps you rank them:
SiteFeedback*** You can also request fellow members to give feedback on your site. This can make you tweak things which may be costing you traffic:
