About Me

07/07/19 ABOUT ME & MY STORY

Hi, my name is Iain. I’m from the UK, i’m married, have 2 wonderful kids, and a cat, living in a 3 bed semi-detached house, pretty standard right?

Being a bit of a computer geek I first dialled up (‘connected’ to you any millennial’s reading this!) to the Internet in 1996. I have worked within the IT industry for nearly 20 years now so I have a wealth computer and network related knowledge.


I’ve dabbled in affiliate marketing over the years but nothing serious. Many years ago I read about passive income from multiple income streams which has fascinated me and something I have wanted to try. However, instead I chose to follow the ‘rat race’ path since university. Recently affiliate marketing is something that has come back to the forefront of my mind, and this time I am being serious!

I came across WA – Wealthy Affiliate – and was very suspicious. Their website looked like exactly what I was looking for, training, in-house tools, hosting,  a community of like-minded people. All for a very low cost. Is it too good to be true? Is Wealthy Affiliate a scam?

That’s why I have decided to do this website to show you  my progress right from the beginning. Depending on when you discover this website you may follow me from the start, 6 months down the line, maybe even years but you’ll be able to see how I have progressed.

I have a good 9-5 job however my ultimate goal is too see if I can achieve a sustainable income from WA’s training alone and have the freedom of working for myself and more time to spend with my family.


I am the kind of person who is always willing to help out others. If you’re looking for ways of making money online you will come across many scams – i.e. other people that are happy to take your well earned money away from you.

By doing this blog I wanted to show you my experience of affiliate marketing with Wealthy Affiliate right from the start. If you decide to sign up via my links you are helping me also!

If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave a comment below and I will be more than happy to help you out.

All the best,

  1. Hi Iain, well done on the blog you created through WA! I started my own personal one about 7 years ago and made sure I followed the training.

    I am now one of the top affiliates in WA and I can tell you their stuff works, for anyone who truly makes an honest effort to do the training and give it time.

    Real success in this business can come through this program for sure, but like I said before, that honest effort is what will determine that success. Make sure you go into WA with this in mind, and you will do very well!

    1. Thank you Vitaliy. My idea for the blog was to provide a real insight as to what Wealthy Affiliate had to offer. I was sceptical at first as I am sure many others are. Hopefully those that are thinking of trying Affiliate Marketing and have considered Wealthy Affiliate as a training provider will be reassured that it’s no scam but a legitimate way to learn – provided as you say, they put in the effort to make it work.


  2. Hi Iain – I have never made a dime online and have tried. I even could not figure out how to make money on Clickbank while many are becoming millionaires.
    I really need help to make a lot of money online and need to know how to get started and how to generate a lot of money right away.

    1. Hello Kimberley. It’s great you have reached out for help. Firstly Affiliate Marketing is not get-rich-quick scheme, sure you can make a few bucks right away if you spam but this is not the way to do it and is not sustainable. Also, whilst it is absolutely possible to make millions, some people may not be completely honest with you! I can help but it will take time and dedication. Are you a member of Wealthy Affiliate? I’d be interested to hear what you have tried so-far. It’s free to sign-up and join but if you can prefer we can discuss via E-Mail. Best, Iain.
