Awesome! Glad you've made it!
Nice to meet you!
My name is Steve and you signed up at my site "I've Tried That" for my free 7-Day email course.
That's me on the left over there. You'll be seeing a lot of me over these next seven days.
Whew. Okay. 7 Days and we have a lot to cover.
This course covers the basics of making money online through Internet Marketing.
You should have already completed the Wealthy Affiliate membership sign-up form.
If not, no worries, you can do so through the following link:
Once you get your account created, come back here. If you've already created a Wealthy Affiliate, keep reading!
Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate
Time to answer some questions.
I'll start with the most obvious one you're currently asking yourself:
"What is Wealthy Affiliate and what did I get myself into?"
(I bet I just hit the nail on the head with that one... haha!)
Wealthy Affiliate is an Online Business Community.
It's a training platform that teaches people how to successfully build online incomes.
It's the exact training that I used to build my current full-time job! I joined back in 2009 and haven't looked back since.
Right now, you're in the Free Starter membership.
That's right, FREE!
You're not going to be charged anything. No hidden fees, no surprise bills, nothing like that. You're currently a free member and can stay that way for as long as you like!
We'll come back to Wealthy Affiliate at the end of this email...
Taking Things Slow
For now, let's forget about making money.
Yes, I told you that was the focus of this mini-course, and trust me, IT IS.
But, right now, let's try something else.
Something you're probably not used to.
Taking things slow!
There's a lot to learn.
It's easy to get overwhelmed.
I want you to feel comfortable. To move at your own pace. To actually UNDERSTAND what I am saying.
I could just send you a 50 page eBook and tell you everything you need to know is in there and wish you good luck then email you offer after offer after offer.
But, I'm trying something different here. I'm breaking away from the mold of shallow internet marketer.
I really do want to help you.
For the next seven days, I'll be training you on how to make money online. Nothing but solid information on how to get started.
You'll learn legitimate ways to build an income online. No BS. No hype. No lies.
Just pure content.
At the end of these 7 days, you'll know..
- What I do that allows me to work full-time from home, for myself. No boss. No set hours. No commute. No lousy coworkers.
- A way to seriously bring in money with an online business.
- How to spot the scam-artists instantly and within seconds. You'll never lose another dollar again.
- How you can follow in my footsteps, work alongside me, and build your very own online income producing business.
- How you, yes YOU, will be building websites in 30 SECONDS or less!
And so very much more.
Watch For Me
Every email I'll send this week will have a subject like this one:
[ITT] Day X: ___________________
Look for it.
Open it when it comes in.
More importantly, READ it! Entirely!
At the end of each day, I'll attach a small list of tasks for you. These will move you in the right direction.
I'm here to help, but it's up to you to do the work. Don't drop the ball!
Here's your very first task list! Complete everything on this list and it will provide you with a strong foundation on how to move forward.
TASKS FOR TODAY
Pretty easy today. Just a taste of how things will work.
1. Setup Your Wealthy Affiliate account (if you haven't already!)
and watch Kyle's walk through video of Wealthy Affiliate
(Side-note: Kyle co-owns Wealthy Affiliate along with Carson. You'll see them quite often and you'll actually be able to talk to them directly and ask them questions. Seriously!)
2. Unlock Your Special Welcome Bonus!
This is the most important task to complete.
There is a very special bonus made available to Wealthy Affiliate beginners. To unlock it, you need to fully setup your profile.
Get this task done!
A HUGE part of success online and at Wealthy Affiliate is your involvement with the community.
In the upper left of the site, you'll see an "Account Setup" box.
Click on "View Tasks" and complete ALL three tasks!
1. Fill in your "About Me" under your profile.
Add your name (or nickname), a little about yourself, and what you'd like to accomplish.
2. Upload a photo.
It doesn't have to be a picture. Many people use icons or even their pets! Do what makes you comfortable.
3. After that, introduce yourself in chat. It's the live chat feature on the main page of the site. I might even be online! If you see me, say hi! My username is IveTriedThat.
(This final check box will automatically check itself off after an hour or so from your first post!)
Wealthy Affiliate is a very social community.
You'll find someone available all hours of the day. Much of your success will come from your ability to interact with other members and ask questions.
After you complete all three tasks, your Welcome Bonus will be made available to you!
3. Leave me a message
After you've spent some time around the site, I want you to introduce yourself on my personal space.
Stop by and let me know you made it in okay!
4. Complete the "Extracurricular Activity"
At the bottom of these emails you may find a section titled Extracurricular Activity.
These will be links to reviews of FREE programs that I use to pull in a little extra side-cash each month. Highly recommended that you join them all!
I have to get real with you just for a moment.
Look, I can't force you to do all of these tasks or read all of my emails.
But you entered your name and email to join my course.
You already took that first step!
Continue what you started! Set aside the 15 minutes or so each day to read what I have to say. Remove any distractions and engage the content.
I'll put you on the right path to building a successful business online, but it's up to YOU to do the work! Fair trade, right?
Okay, end of my mini-motivation speech. We good? :)
So, make sure you complete today's task list!
Like I said, we're taking it easy today.
After that, we'll dive in and really get moving.
Again, welcome! Glad to have you. :)
This week is about to get real interesting.
Stay with me.
PS. Tomorrow we get down to the nitty-gritty. The reason why you joined this course.
I'll start you on your path to making money.
Day 5 will have a very special surprise for you for following my course. It's going to seriously propel you forward faster than most beginners.
By Day 7, you won't believe how far you've come.
It's about to get fun.
The following is completely optional and not related to the course. I wanted to share with you a review of a program I did a few months ago.
It's a fun way to earn some extra money online doing something you already do online for free.
It's already made me over $400. Seriously!

Check it out while you wait for Day 2!
See you tomorrow!
