Online Marketers Toolbox Training and Knowledge BaseTraining and Knowledge Base

Welcome to the Online Marketers Toolbox Training and Knowledge Base.

I’m a strong advocate of the concept of continuous learning. After all, the internet and the digital marketplace is an ever evolving playing field, and if you are not committed to some form of ongoing training or learning program, your knowledge and skills will quickly become outdated, or worse, obsolete.

The following products and services have been tested by, and are recommended by, me.

Wealthy Affiliate

Wealthy Affiliate offers a free and premium subscription and is definitely the go-to place for anyone serious about upskilling area of online and affiliate marketing.

However, the platform is so much more than just a training and knowledge base. There is also an online community who are encouraged to (and are rewarded for) developing and updating the training resources within Wealthy Affiliate. This means that new ideas and concepts are constantly being shared amongst their members.

In addition, Wealthy Affiliate offers website & email hosting, access to millions of images through a free image library, content drafting tools, to name just a few features here.

Wealthy Affiliate for Authors

I recommend Wealthy Affiliate for Authors because so many of the features within the platform are relevant to writers and will help you position yourself as an authority or a brand. Training covers everything from establishing your first website, to effective use of social media, email marketing and seo. All of these techniques are critical when creating and establishing your Author Platform.

Does Wealthy Affiliate have its’ own affiliate program? 

Yes. In fact Wealthy Affiliate has one of the best affiliate referral programs I’ve seen. Not only can you create your own recurring monthly revenue stream by referring people to use the platform, you also have the opportunity to generate additional income when people purchase domain names or use any training material you have developed on the platform. You can also create an income by promoting their hosting platform, SiteRubix, and SEO tool, Jaaxy.

The best part about their affiliate program is that they offer a 7 phase Affiliate Bootcamp training program which teaches you everything you need to know about becoming a successful Wealthy Affiliate.

Author-ity Authors

‘Write Your Book in 90 Days’ is the first of an exciting new training series created by established author and book coach, Dixie Maria Carlton.

Writing a high-quality non-fiction book takes time to plan and execute. If you want your book to stand out in a crowded indie publishing marketing, it’s essential you produce a well written and polished end product. Dixie’s self paced online learning course helps you at every step along the way, from inception of your idea, to honing in on your point of difference, right through to writing and the final manuscript.

If you are stuck and unsure where to start, I highly recommend this training course. It’s practical and it gets the job done.

Does Author-ity Authors have an affiliate program?

Yes. Contact Dixie directly via her Author-ity Authors website for further details.

    I agree completely with you that we need to find something or someplace where we can learn and continue to learn. Knowledge is expanding so fast and technology is changing exponentially so thinking you have learned all you need to know and can now sit back and enjoy life may be a little short sighted.

    I like how you have focused in how Wealthy Affiliate can help writers build an online presence. I have been trying it out for 3 months now and I am absolutely amazed at how much I have learned and continue to learn. I have finished a few training programs and thought maybe I knew a lot but then come to find out that other more experienced members have created new content that keeps me thinking and moving forward. It is truly an incredible learning opportunity.

      Hi Rick, Thanks for your feedback and comments. I agree with your statement about WA. The more I learn, the more I realise I have to learn! But it’s a great place to do just that. All the best, cheers, Karen

    I agree, we have to learn continuously, especially in the online world where things are always changing. And in the same way, ongoing support is so helpful as there are so many things to learn and things are changing rapidly.

    I have never heard of Dixie Carlton. Is her teaching only for publishing books, or including writing for online such as contents or sales copy? Regardless, I would love to publish the book (I don’t know about what yet!) because I heard once you publish the book, you will become the expert, and people will listen to you, and you will become authoritative figure (and brand). Many people became successful once they published the books.

    Thank you for the information!

    • KD Forsman says:

      Hi Kyoko, Dixie also works with business professionals and technical experts to help them define and develop their brand, public speaking and online presence. The book writing, coaching and mentoring fits neatly into this area and she is extremely proficient at what she does. You are absolutely right about perceptions changing when you produce a book in your chosen niche. Best wishes, Karen

    An informative and helpful post. I’ve been thinking of how to write a book in my niche. It’s great that you’ve provided an affordable option for creating a book with a polished end product. This will be inspiring and an additional source of income for when I’m ready to pursue this avenue. Thanks for sharing.

    • KD Forsman says:

      Hi Kat, Glad to hear you found this information useful. Dixie is a great coach and book mentor, so when you’re ready to get writing – she’s the lady to help. Best of luck, Cheers, Karen

    Like the way you explained the subject, you make it understandable and easy as it is. Nice job!

    I have had some experience of writing books, Ebooks that is. The Dixie writing coarse looks like a great idea to encourage up and coming authors to get their writing skills improved and eventually get a great book published.

    • KD Forsman says:

      Dixie’s course would be perfect for anyone wanting to write and publish an ebook. I’m working my way through the course at the moment for a new book I’m writing and it’s very good. Dixie helps add that extra 10% magic to your final product. Best wishes, Karen

  7. Roger Bynoe says:

    Wealthy Affiliates is a good program. One issue I have is that it takes a long time to get an answer to a question via a text message. Also there is no telephone number to call to answer questions about the program..

    • KD Forsman says:

      Hi Roger, thanks for your comment. All queries about Wealthy Affiliate are answered within the platform messaging system, there is no contact number or email address to contact the founders directly. However, I haven’t had an issue with contacting them, or their SiteSupport who normally reply within a few minutes of raising a support ticket. Hope this helps, Cheers, Karen
