Is Digital Marketing A Real Business? – My Personal Experience

digital marketing is a real business

Welcome, My Curious Reader!

Have you thought about becoming an entrepreneur? Do you have a desire to work for yourself instead of someone else? That’s basically the definition of an entrepreneur – someone who wants to work for himself and create a money-making business. The idea of it is a glorious one! Why didn’t you ever think of it? Is it too late?  No way!  While there are several ways to become your own boss, I’m going to reveal an answer to a question you might be wondering about. Is digital marketing a real business?



Brick Walls & Rabbit Holes

When I quit my job as a teacher, I had a desire to help add income to our bank account. In a series of events that all led to dead-ends, I was certain that the online opportunities that were out there just weren’t in the cards for me. I wasn’t dealt a winning hand to play within the game of online entrepreneurship. Maybe you’re feeling the same or have in the past. I’m guessing since you’re here, that spark to find something suitable has been ignited and you want me to share my story with you.




Curves & Fog

While one rabbit hole often led to another and then another, I realized I was on a path leading to nowhere. My search officially ended one day, or so I thought. I found a website that I have been a part of for months and have no intention of leaving it. It’s brought me out of the fog and I have a clear direction in which way I want my journey to end. With the help of Wealthy Affiliate, I’ve realized that I could begin my own business. Anyone can! I didn’t know a thing about being an entrepreneur, but I do now! I’ve been helped out of the mud and am well on my way to success!



Enter – Wealthy Affiliate

It’s no surprise that I very much want to share my experience with Wealthy Affiliate! After all, when I joined the online community, I didn’t know beans about becoming an affiliate marketer, digital entrepreneur, or the like. However, I can now proudly give myself the title of ‘Boss Lady’ and work from the comfort of my own home! I’m a mompreneur and I’m loving every second of it! Would you like to know a little bit about the platform?

To Summarize

I do love the website, obviously. Having said that, I could talk about all its benefits for days on end. To simplify it, you should know that it is a website used to train anyone who wants to learn about how to become an affiliate marketer. Not only that, but you can host two websites, learn from several training modules, ask questions from the community, or reach out to site support if you ever need technical help. I know you must be thinking that a place that boasts all of that must be expensive. After all, you don’t want to have to sell your right arm to join. I hear you! The things I’ve just mentioned though – all free! Yep! You can join today and take advantage of everything I’ve listed above and remain with a free account for as long as you’d like. You don’t sign up with a credit card on file; it’s free!



Why Not?

If you haven’t yet clicked that red button above, don’t delay! Get yourself a free account today and begin your online business! No money down. No scamming. No lies. Can you upgrade your membership? Of course! I’m so glad you asked! Once inside the platform and you realize what else is available, you’ll probably find it wise to eventually upgrade to a premium membership. Doing so will unlock doors to so much more training, live webinars, access to other levels of the platform, and years and years of archived material. Well, you’re thinking that you couldn’t possibly do that! It’s going to cost your left arm this time! Nope! Wrong again, friend! I’m happy to tell you that you can have all of that for a mere $0.82 per day. Can you even buy a daily paper for that price? And of course, this is only an option! It’s not even mandatory! Can you even believe this? It’s a steal of a deal!

    Thanks for sharing your experience. I personally believe that digital marketing is a real business. In my country, online shop owners are required to pay tax as much as brick and mortar business owner. There are some different regulations that are still in progress to be announced, though. Aside from some legal matters, acquiring money from online business is real, because we get real money too 🙂

      Thank you for taking the time to comment, Alblue!  

      I find it extremely fascinating that statistics prove how brick and mortar businesses will need to think about online efforts to keep their business alive.  It just makes me happy to be a part of a place that taught me what it takes to have a successful online business.  The world is headed that way in the near future and I’m excited to be a little ahead of the game.  Good luck to you!

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts on digital marketing Heidi. I have been trying for a while to create my own digital business but I feel like I’m not really focusing on anything in particular. Trying something one day, and something else the next.
    I really like the sound of your book. I’d like to try to create my own products but I just don’t know how I could do that or even choose a topic to write about. Have you any advice on how to decide what niches are best to work in?

    • admin says:

      Hey, James!

      I’m so happy you found this page! I wouldn’t get too discouraged about lack of focus. How would you know what you like and don’t like if you weren’t trying new things?

      Please do check out the eBook. It’ll walk you through the creation process and then on to marketing and selling your product. I think you’ll be impressed with all the free tools at your fingertips!

      As far as a niche, I’d just begin with a list of your likes, passions, etc. Narrow it after you’ve done some research about topics that are up and coming right now. You want to select something that is evergreen, not just a momentary fad, so to speak.

      If you have further questions, please stop back. We’ll be in touch for sure! You can do this – I am cheering for your successes!

    Oh I’d love to work in my pajamas! Or outside, on a beach or in a forrest. That would be lovely. But I have no knowledge or skills of business matters, what shall I do? Do you think I can learn everything there where you are learning and work from home too? I am just a common girl.

    • admin says:

      Hello, Guadelupe!

      Thank you so much for stopping by and taking the time to read through the post! Pajamas on the beach sound lovely! Make it a goal! Yes! If you join Wealthy Affiliate, you will have more than enough tools to push you in the direction of success! I’m not learning from any other place! By the way, check out that book I mentioned when you get a chance! You’ll find a blueprint for creating, marketing, and selling your own digital products! Look for me after you sign up for Wealthy Affiliate! I would love to help you on your journey!
