  1. Hello while reading the topic I saw an orthographic error, but still the sentence has not lost its meaning. During the reading I noticed that shows the success of Kyle and Carson but not its success. I’d be more convinced if you showed me your success. I also think that if you put a video with your personal experience or showing the platform you will have more conversions. Hope this helps.

    • Hello Calvete, 

      Thank You for reading my post. 

      I will certainly look in to the orthographic error.

      Nice to get a critical commemt now and then. 

      Will add a video in my post today. 

      As for my success that will be measured over time. 

      Regards Shane.

  2. Hi Shane,

    I really enjoyed reading this post about wether Affiliate marketing is a business! Your thoughts on the topic was really interesting.  I especially enjoyed the image of coka-cola selling 25 bottles in its first year. Persistence is paramount !

    Recently I remember listening to a talk Warren Buffet gave on his recommendations for safe investments. He said that Coke was a good long term investment because people all of a sudden are not going to stop drinking it, its one of those drinks thats so incredibly popular still in many industries. 

    As a mechanic on shift work our crew was drinking it like it was going out of fashion for that energy hit. All things in moderation though !

    I enjoyed punching in a few keywords to that Jaaxy search tool at the end of your article as well. Have been using this tool quite a lot recently, its super handy to find those Long-Tail Keywords that have a lot of searches but not much competition. Great for those search engine rankings!

    This review of Wealthy affiliate was definitely short and sharp and too the point, I really appreciate articles like this it gets to the crux of it without waffling on too much. I applaud your efforts for the execution here.

    I had a question for you in regard to Wealthy Affiliate. What do you think the best way to build a a network of people is so that you can bounce ideas off each other? For instance affiliate marketing, what kind of network would be most beneficial.

     Also what is your favourite question to ask someone who has had great success within a business that your looking to succeed in as well?

    Look forward to hearing your thoughts on this, and also will return for another look at your writing in the future. I really enjoyed your style of writing and what you had to say. 

    All the best! 


    • Hello Will, Thank You for reading my post. 

      Appreciate the postive comments and especially the questions. 

      The best way to network is right here at Wealthy Affiliate. 

      Another way is Facebook groups. 

      Your other question is a tough one as there are so many questions you can ask someone. What makes you a successful person would be my question as i’m sure this will vary from person to person. 

      Kind Regards Shane.

  3. Shane,

    I rejoined Wealthy Affiliate almost 3 months ago and I am very happy there.
    Training and constant communication are excellent. I love the community and how tuned in the owners are. They are not off spending our money. They are working alongside us making WA the best affiliate marketing site it can be.

    I also love the fact that they encourage us to go off into our own area of interest. We do not have to promote WA, but it is always an option.

    Thank you for sharing your experience and I’ll see you at WA!
