7 DAYS FREE – MAKE THE MOST OF IT
Well, are you ever in for a free ride on the 7 days free trial on Wealthy Affiliate.
I say ride because it’s a fun, exhilarating and exciting! In my free trial period I learned so much that I literally had to force myself to shut down my laptop and go to sleep.
I felt like a kid learning to ride a bike
Yes, a little nervous and very excited. I have been surfing the net for years… first on my MAC SE (yes, that’s right, I’m that old), then on my laptop, next on my ipad and now on my mini tablet. Yet, did I have any idea how to build a website or how money could be made online, or detailed knowledge about SEO and keywords?
No, no, and no
Wealthy Affiliate taught me in one week what I’d been trying to learn on my own for months. I felt like I owed Wealthy Affiliate some kind of payment for what they’d given me for free. Even if I were to walk away or never sign on for premium I felt like I had actually taken advantage of them for 7 whole days. I would have given them $19.00, if they only accepted gifts. I felt like even if I didn’t continue on with Wealthy Affiliate I would still benefit from the 10 lessons and 2 free websites they’d help me build. Heck, I could likely use the new skills I learned in a bricks n mortar job in the future. But free meant free and there’s no option to pay them for what you got for free.
After 7 days free you’ve at the tip of the iceberg
For $19.00 you unlock the 1st month of premium and you are given the full run of house. If you stay with the free membership you will still benefit but you’ll be sitting on the tip of the iceberg.
With this in mind I wrote the following tips for those of you smart enough to have just clicked the “START NOW” button:
How to Make the Most of your Seven (FREE) Days
OF COURSE, I WENT PREMIUM AFTER 7 DAYS, IT WAS A NO BRAINER
I’ve paid more for lunch (and all I got was heartburn).
If you are a “newbie” on your seven day free membership, here are a few tips…
1. Join up when you have several hours to invest to get started right away with your first free lesson. Build at least 1 website to feel the rush of seeing your creative baby come to life. If you have any serious notion of starting an online business, this is worth clearing a few hours for, even if you later decide this isn’t for you, at least you’ll know you gave it a proper shot.
After I signed up, I got busy and didn’t create my profile or sign in for the first 3 days **SIGH** wish I had known better. But I sure crammed in the last 4 days to make up for it.
2. If you have laptop and a desktop computer, once you move into the website building lessons fire up one computer for the video/tutorial and the other computer to perform the tasks on your site manager while the instructions are on (pausing as needed).
This saved time and made the most of my 7 days free. Really worked like an absolute charm for me!
3. Skip right to the lesson on Jaaxy BEFORE you decide on your niche website domain name. I kind of wish I had done that first.
But it’s not that big a deal because with premium I get more websites than I’m likely to ever have time to build.
