How To Become An Online Marketer – 3 Simple Steps

In this post, I will go over 3 simple steps on how to become an online marketer.

You have a lot of value you can add to the world, things you want to share, and ways you can guide people in a particular area which you’re passionate about. One great way to do that is with a website and domain of your own.

As you post new articles to your website, your authority in that area will grow and your readers will come to trust your views and opinion. All of this does not happen overnight but takes consistent time and effort, but this is still quite simple for anyone to do.

And if you already have a product or service or perhaps even a book you want to sell, this website will make that happen too. If you don’t have any product or service, no worries, there are a couple of simple ways you can make money with your site, while still delivering value to your website visitors.

Now what if I told you all of this is possible fairly quickly and all it takes is for you to follow 3 simple steps?

The steps are as follows:

Step 1: Become a Free member of Wealthy Affiliate

Step 2: Add your profile in Wealthy Affiliate and sample the Online Entrepreneur or Bootcamp Training for 5 days

Step 3: Signup for the monthly premium membership (which can be canceled anytime if you decide it’s not for you).

I’m sure that once you experience the Wealthy Affiliate platform for yourself, there will be no looking back! But that’s entirely your choice.

Now let me describe what you will get at each of these steps, as every one of these steps will get you that much closer to becoming an online marketer and business owner.

Free Starter Membership

Once you sign up as a free starter member with your name and email, you will have access to the following:How To Become An Online Marketer with Free Starter Membership

  • Online Entrepreneur/ Affiliate Bootcamp Training with full access to the first 10 lessons
  • 1 Free website on WA’s award-winning web hosting platform on SiteRubix
  • Access to a 1.5+ million community of new and expert Online marketers
  • Direct consultation with founders Kyle and Carson for defining your online business goals
  • Access to most platform tools, including the Keyword Research tool


As a starter member, you can host 2 websites and will have access to both these websites and the WA platform at the starter level as long as you like. But most people who are looking for more help with their business choose to upgrade to premium, but this is not compulsory. You can stay a starter member for as long as you want.

Your 1st Five Days at WA

The first thing I would suggest upon joining as a Starter member is to update your profile with some details about your background. This will help community members to know a bit about you and to reach out to welcome you to WA, answer your questions and so on.

Right after this, you can start one of the two available training certification tracks on Wealthy Affiliate and will have access to the first series of lessons.

You can then choose your niche. A niche is simply what topic your website/ blog will be focusing on. There is ample help in the training course and within the WA platform for choosing a good niche that you can be successful in.

Once you’ve chosen a good niche, the platform makes it easy for you to set up your website within a few minutes, with just the click of a button. This will give you a wordpress site which you can further design and customize. At this point, feel free to ask any questions in the training program and the multiple chats and help sections on WA.

Or simply follow the training which answers more than 90% of the questions most people might have at this point. There is even an opportunity to sample the live training webinar which happens once a week.

Premium Membership

There are a number of benefits of the premium membership which the starter membership does not provide. Some key benefits of the premium membership include both the Platform benefits and the Website-specific features.

Platform Features

  • How To Become An Online Marketer with Premium Membership

    Access to LIVE training webinar classes

  • Recordings of all prior video training recordings
  • Full set of Online Entrepreneur 50 lessons Training
  • Full set of Affiliate Bootcamp 70 lessons Training
  • Unlimited Industry Training and Classrooms
  • WA Blog and more Community Features
  • You can provide Training to earn money in WA
  • All your progress within the platform activities are given weightage for determining a WA Rank which can change on a daily basis. This Rank feature will help you to stay on target and motivate you to work towards achieving your online business goals.

Website Features

  • Create up to 10 websites, either on your own domain or as a SiteRubix subdomain
  • 24/7 Technical support for your websites
  • Register domain for a nominal fee on WA with many free advanced features
  • A SiteSpeed feature for delivering a super fast response to website visitors
  • Security via SSL, Spam protection and much more
  • Live tracking of Website Health to ensure the website responds efficiently over time
  • Receive Site Feedback and Comments from experts within the community
  • Creating blog content is greatly simplified with the SiteContent feature

Things to Watch Out ForHow To Become An Online Marketer - Wtih Some Tested Ground Rules

  • With the sheer amount of WA blog articles and training provided by the community, there is a chance to get overwhelmed with so much useful information.
  • One good approach is to set/ block-off a fixed half hour or 1 hour a day for community interaction and focus the rest of your time in the main training modules (OEC or Bootcamp) and in building and growing your niche websites.
  • The WA Rank feature can cause your rank to rise or drop suddenly as your activity within the WA platform changes on different days (in comparison to others in the community) . This is nothing to worry about. It is only there to keep you on target towards achieving your own goals. So don’t stress over this too much.


I know you have been scammed before by internet vendors and/or training providers who led you to believe that their product or service is worth every penny. But as the days passed the only thing that changed is the sheer amount of money you lost by following the advice of these unscrupulous providers.

I’ve been there too and I know how that feels and I know that the Wealthy Affiliate platform is a true gem in this whole mix, and it is truly genuine and trustworthy.

All I ask is that you try out the platform yourself as a free member and experience it for yourself before deciding further. You owe it to yourself to build the life you always dream of! It all begins with taking the first step of becoming a starter member.

It will take some work and may take a few weeks or months before you start making your online income, but I definitely know you will make it. And once the money starts coming in, you chances to keep earning much more increase every single day!

Now here are the Top 3 resources we highlighted in this post:

  1. Hi Padma, I’ve been a member of Wealthy Affiliate for around eight months and, having started off with the free membership quickly upgraded to Premium because I discovered a community of helpful and supportive people and wanted to contribute more. It has been worth every penny, my site traffic and earnings are increasing every month and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to learn to monetize a website.

  2. Hi Padma,

    Thanks a lot for the insightful and informative article.

    As you mentioned, because of the increased number of online scams people are really struggling to find genuine make money online training platforms. Your article is guiding people in the right direction saving their time and money.

    In September 2016, I came across Wealthy Affiliate and I was afraid and skeptical. I did my research for one month and finally decided to give it a try, I have lost $4000+ to scams and programs that under-delivered with low-quality.

    Fast forward, I am still with WA. WA helped me to become a full-time affiliate marketer and blogger. As you mentioned, the only downside is going to be loads of valuable information available on the platform. So it is advisable to first focus on the main training and that’s the key to success.
