At the end of 2019 I put out the intention to the Universe that I wanted to do something online again…to build an online business. I was in a different space compared to 15 years ago…but had no idea what to do or where to start…I knew I didn’t really want to create my own products.

And as if my magic, I kept seeing different ‘business opportunities’…

learn how to create an online businessI came across a guy who taught you how to buy businesses from owners looking to retire…I even had a initial interview with one of his team. But…it felt like jumping through hoops:

‘we only work with motivated and dynamic people who are serious, are you one of those people? We don’t want to work with anyone not willing to take immediate action’.

Gosh…I got the same response for a pair of guys teaching you about setting up an Amazon fulfilment business…hmm. I really don’t like that approach…makes me feel like they are doing me a favour…like I have to get my begging bowl out and say ‘please sir would you help me’…yikes! I dropped those ideas like they were drenched in a sticky virus…

And then I saw an advert of Wealth Affiliate…I was intrigued.

I had a look around the free version:

Starting An Online Affiliate Marketing Business









  1. it was simple
  2. there was no promise of overnight riches
  3. no hoops to jump through
  4. step by step plan to follow
  5. a like minded community

but what I really liked was this:

Starting An Online Affiliate Marketing Business










I felt a genuineness that I don’t remember every feeling before when it came to the ‘murky’ world of online marketing and making money online….so I signed up to the premium version…

I must admit what happened next was ‘out of the ordinary’.

Starting An Online Affiliate Marketing Business








Wow! Had I just stumbled upon a ‘cult?’…my mind thought. Or had I actually found something that lived and breathed the values that I hold close; honesty/integrity/community?

Well so far so good it seems…next step is the training…and creating my online business

  1. Great article, Tariq. It’s great to hear about your story and what it was that you found so attractive about Wealthy Affiliate compared to all the other businesses you looked at.

    I am also a member of WA and find the courses to be so helpful, and the community so friendly and supportive, that I can’t imagine ever cancelling my membership there.

    I will attest to anyone reading that Wealthy Affiliate is worth the investment. The support, domains, additional software, and all the other features involved are a great tool for success in the online world.
    Best of luck in your venture!

  3. You did a great job Tariq! I believe that this is the information that can’t be find on the web easily and you decided to share it with others for free, that’s really great!
    I didn’t know much about building an online affiliate marketing business but I’ve been always interested to know more about this and your in-deep post helped me a lot. I don’t know if you wrote this post 100% by yourself or got help from other sources as well, anyway, it has really brilliant information which convinced me to share it with my friends on social networks.
    I think, the Internet needs more quality posts like yours these days, especially when we see that it’s full of ads and scams about this topic. You can’t read a post easily on a website without seeing tons of ads and popups but your site and post is an ideal example of an article which is not covered by annoying ads and let readers enjoy reading every piece of it.

    Thank you again and I wish you continue providing such that quality information in the future which turn the Internet and blogs into a better place to surf!
