How To Make Money In A Small Town

How To Make Money In A Small Town

I live in a small town called Apollo, Pennsylvania population as of the 2010 census report was 1,647 people. I thought it best just to let you know how familiar I am with “How to Make Money in a Small Town”.

Unless you wanted to travel miles to work for a JOB then there is a very small plaza in the middle of town where you are going to be limited in what you can earn.

Most of the jobs available are minimum wage positions with a few supervisory spots in each location. There are a few restaurants and bars but to earn a living above the poverty level at these are not highly possible.

Depending on what you are qualified for or have experience with job searching in the area would not be highly beneficial unless you were looking for a part-time position to supplement your income.

This was not something I was interested in doing, I wanted a way to earn a substantial income putting in the least amount of time. So began my research into working online to earn a passive income for the rest of my life.

Do not worry this is not some hyped up sales page it is my actual story of how I am working online making money at home using only my laptop and internet connection.


Then do not take your eyes off this page until the very end – it will contain a link where you too can become financially independent earning a full-time living doing part-time work at home. Or in reality, from any location, you want with an internet connection and your laptop.


The Search Begins

Unless you were born into a rich family then you all know where I am coming from saying that unless two partners in a relationship must be brining in income or things are pretty difficult financially.

born with a silver spoon meaning born rich

Prices keep going up and the take-home pay from working those 40 plus hours a week does not grow at the same rate does it? Well, I can let you know being on Social Security or collecting Pension checks is no different, savings get eaten away quickly.

Feeling really disgusted one day I began to search online for a way to make money working at home online. I knew about all the scams out there, mostly because in the past I had tried enough of them to know none of them would work.

Today I know how to spot one of those scams a mile away they are known as “shiny object syndrome” in the legitimate online world. Wow, I had spent thousands trying many of them out in years gone by.

Call it a learning curve over time knowing that there is NOT a get-rich-quick system, done for you system, magic button on the keyboard, set it and forget it, instant gratification system out there that will work.

Now I could keep you in suspense for the whole length of this article, but that is not how I am. During my search, I landed on a website that was offering a 100% FREE Starter Membership with No Credit Card Required.

Yes, I see you shaking your head! Was I going to be stupid and fill in this form just so I could end up on another one of those hyped-up full of crap videos? Then have my email inbox flooded with garbage emails?

Quite skeptical myself it did say 100% FREE Starter Membership with No Credit Card Required and considering I had not found anything else of interest yet, why not give this a shot.

Can you imagine the shock when instead of the video or a lengthy sales page showing up next, I ended up on another form to set up my profile for a training website?

This training website is called “Wealthy Affiliate“, however, do not let that company name fool you they teach more than just affiliate marketing for making money online at home.


Will This Work For You?

I understand that not everyone has heard of affiliate marketing, but let me assure you anyone can make this work if they are willing to follow the process involved in building an online business.

It is simple, can you follow directions from a video walking you through step by step instructions? Do you have a computer or laptop with an internet connection? If you answered “Yes” to both questions then this will work for you.

Sorry, I got a little side-tracked from my story there. Where was I? Yes, on the “Wealthy Affiliate” training website ready to fill in the profile form.

Deciding I had nothing to lose at this point filling in the profile form took only a few seconds, I used a screen name and password along with my email address and boom I was in.

Wealthy Affiliate is owned by two gentlemen out of Canada, who met in college, Carson and Kyle. I would like to introduce you to them, this is their picture below. Scams do not show the owners pictures just wanted to make you aware of this.

Carson (left) runs everything behind the scenes that has to do with the technical side of running a business online.  He handles programming, coding, hosting, etc. so you never need to know any of this kind of thing or have experience with it.

Kyle (right) is the voice of Wealthy Affiliate, he has been doing this for over 15 years working online. He does all the videos and step by step instructions teaching you the process of how to become successful with an online business at home.

I inserted this here because once I had my profile set up with a little about myself and why I joined as a member, along with a stock photo I picked from the gallery, I then started the training with Kyle teaching this was intense.

Becoming so involved with watching, listening, and actually performing tasks I lost track of time. This training was good even better than good it was great, and made sense to the point I did not want to take a break from learning more.

After 12 hours of completing, if I remember correctly, three of the free lessons and doing all the tasks checking them off one by one from the list provided I still did not want to stop!  But I knew my brain was fried it needed a break.

It was during my second day of the Free Starter Membership as I was working on the lessons when I realized this was the real deal to making money online.  I had found what was required to build a real online business and make money at home.

Nothing I had learned so far was a get-rich-quick system. I knew I was getting my Premium Membership before the seven-day part of the trial ran out. Joining during the first seven days of the trial gets the first month of Premium at a huge discount!

Not sure about you but anytime I can save money, no matter how big or small the discount I cannot pass up the savings, not with my fixed income stretched to the limit.

I could have waited a couple of more days prior to jumping on the Premium Membership, but when I see something I know is great like this, why hesitate?


What Do You Get For FREE?

I wanted to include this just so you know what to expect with the “Free Starter Membership” with No Credit Card Required. The free training provides you more than enough to know if Wealthy Affiliate is going to be the right choice for you.

  • Beginners Training Course
  • Level 1 of the Online Entrepreneur Certification (OEC) consisting of 10 Lessons
  • Level 1 in the Affiliate Boot Camp Training – another 10 Lessons
  • 1 Free Websites on the subdomain
  • Free Hosting for both Websites
  • 2 Training Classrooms
  • Walk-Through Videos
  • Personal Affiliate Blog
  • Keyword Research Tool – 30 Free Searches
  • Affiliate Program – enables you to Earn While You Learn
  • One-on-One Coaching (available the first seven days of trial only)
  • Live Chat 24/7 (available the first seven days of trial only)

Remember previously I said you can get a Premium Membership discounted the first month during the first seven days of the trial period? The same applies to One-on-One Coaching and Live Chat which are PRICELESS tools you do not want to lose.

I also told you that during the second day while I was working on the training I knew this was the real deal for working online to make money and made sure to get the discounted first month for ONLY $19.00 unbelievable, right?

Figure this out, you can get the Free Starter Membership for seven days then take the Premium Membership, an additional 30 days for ONLY $19.00, giving you a whole 37 days to decide if Wealthy Affiliate is right for you, with the ability to use all the resources and benefits they offer.

Most of the scams charge you upfront at least $37.00 just to get in the door almost double what you spend for over a month’s real deal training at Wealthy Affiliate and since you are under no obligation what a steal, right?

Taking over a month to use ALL the resources Wealthy Affiliate offers sure makes more sense. During that time you can connect with experts in the online world, take advantage of their expertise to learn even faster.

Make sure to attend a “Live Event” on Friday night with our online live training coach, Jay Neill, his profile name is “magistudios“. Jay, in my opinion, is one of the greatest experts in the online world and not just with affiliate marketing.

Jay records his training every week and places the replay in the archives for you to view at your convenience should you be unable to attend the live session that week. There are hundreds of videos available on any topic you might be searching for.

Looking for training on a particular topic and cannot locate any on the platform? (To do a search of the community you can post the question in the black stripe along the top of the page by the WA Logo.)

Then all you need to do is ask the community.  You will find members who will be more than happy to create training (another incentive of Premium Membership, after 3 months you get paid for creating training) in order to help not just new members in the community, but all members current or future ones.


In Conclusion

Joining Wealthy Affiliate has been one of the best things I could have ever done, my only regret, not finding the community sooner than I did.

At the time of writing this article, I have been a member for only a year and a half, but I can testify honestly this works I have actually earned money with Wealthy Affiliate!

I realize it is not much, but earning anything this early with all the more work I put in is nothing short of amazing at this point. I will continue to stay a Premium Member of this community and recommend it to everyone, it is the best on the internet.

I would also like to point out there are ways to find all the information you would need to begin working online that would take you years to locate and learn. It can be done, but how long do you want to search and toil prior to finding it all?

Failure is never an option for me, and I will let you know right now that the first website I built was a huge failure, but that did not stop me from starting over creating a website that is still up and running today.

Yes, this does take time to learn the process, create an online business website, learn SEO, submit all the website information to the major search engines for indexing, wait for ranking, etc.

But it is so much easier with all the information you need all in one place along with a whole community of experts ready to help you succeed. The people in this community are real you will make friends from all over the world you can count on.

Not only will they help you by teaching you how they are creating their online business, but they will offer the encouragement and support needed to keep you going when times get rough.

Considering I have never been good at selling anything all I can do is let you know my experience with Wealthy Affiliate has only been one of success, where all the others failed, Wealthy Affiliate has succeeded in helping me make money online.

I am going to let the cat out of the bag right here, get your 100% Free Starter Membership with No Credit Card Required right now today. Check out the community – Black Friday is almost upon us – and Wealthy Affiliate offers a Great Deal!

This very well might be the last year that such an offer is going to exist and making you aware of this now is of the utmost importance. Once you lock in the yearly Premium Membership at this price you have it for life!

I do not know of any business(s) that can be run with an overhead of only $299.00 a year, do you? Because Premium Membership gives you 10 websites with hosting with your membership, including all the benefits and support!

Seriously, 10 websites and in time you could use these either for your own online businesses or run your own Local SEO business from home. For your information, Local SEO is creating and maintaining websites for local businesses.

Local SEO, once you become familiar with building websites, is a highly profitable business that can earn you substantial income every month. Not to mention the initial website creation can run anywhere from $200.00 to $5,000.00.

Maintenance each month for the websites is not very time-consuming, but it must be taken care of regularly and can be billed monthly at $50.00 to $???? depending on what the customer requires.

Previously in my article, I did say do not take the name of the company Wealthy Affiliate as meaning you are only going to learn about affiliate marketing. Now you have an example of another business you can start from home part-time.

And with the Black Friday Special coming up, it runs from November 29, 2019 thru Cyber Monday, December 2, 2019 with a fair warning this could be the last year they offer the special getting yours now is going to save you huge money.
