Free Online Marketing Training – Quality Training

It is hard to find Free Online training in Marketing and whatever else goes with Marketing. The online world is becoming so competitive we are definitely in need of up to date training and help.
In this blog I am going to give you my recommendation on which training to use and I am going to give you a short explanation of what Marketing is. The reason why I am telling you about what marketing is, is so that you don’t get into marketing and not know what to expect. It can be quite confusing if you are starting out as a newbie.

What is Online Marketing

At first I thought marketing was about placing an add somewhere…like on Facebook or on a random page on the internet and whala! But I tried that and it just costed me more money that what I liked to spend. It is not that simple, we need to learn strategy.

The topic of this blog is FREE online Marketing. Therefore, paying to get it done easily is not what you are looking for. You are here to learn how to do it yourself…cheap.

This is what Google says Online Marketing is: “Online marketing, which is also called internet marketing or online advertising, is any tool, strategy or method of getting the company name, services or products out to the public. The advertisements can take many forms and some strategies focus on subtle messages rather than clear-cut advertisements.

Why do we need Online Marketing?

As a business owner we need online marketing because people have become ‘online’ now. We research online, we social online and we shop and buy online. Without the internet life would be pretty boring and our business and products or services will not be sold or known about.

We want our brand or name to become a household name. There are however many aspects or channels of Online Marketing:

This is the list:

  • Search Engine Optimization (SEO) (Free)
  • Search Engine Marketing (Paid for Marketing)
  • Pay Per Click (PPC)
  • Email Marketing
  • Video Marketing
  • Blogging
  • Content Marketing
  • Social Media
  • Network Marketing
  • Affiliate Marketing
  • Contexual Marketing
  • Google Adwords

These are all important aspects of Marketing we need to learn about each of them and utilize them in the best possible way. By learning the strategy behind each or as many of these channels as possible will bring great combined results. The good news is: Most of these can be utilized for free! If you just know how.

Trying to track down free training on all the channels above will take you a lifetime. That is why I recommend Wealthy Affiliate:

What are you letting yourself in to:

To accomplish that list of marketing channels you first need something to market. You need a product or a service to show off. In order to accomplish that you need a website. So that is where you will need to start. How you build your first website will be the foundation of your entire marketing campaign. This is what your strategy would look like:

Choose and Interest, Build a website, Attract Visitors and then Earn Money.

The Foundation of choosing something that you have a passion for will prove to be very important when you come to the part where you build your website and start writing content. Its hard to write about, or sell something if you don’t believe in it. Then building your website in such a way that it contains all the relevant keywords, with relevant content, adding the search engine magic, getting comments, linking your pages to your own posts, adding affiliate links and social media links, adding relevant pictures and did I mention learning how to use WordPress? Did you know that WordPress websites get ranked better? And its FREE!

About Whooping Reviews

Whooping Reviews is a celebration of reviews!

Yes! A Celebration because I celebrate user opinions and my DREAMS!

Why create a Review site?

My Family and I are internet users too and we use the internet for research when buying products and finding information for our DIY projects. There is nothing we hate more than inaccurate information and incomplete  reviews. Not even talking about duplicate content! It’s like people only have one or two things to say about a product or service, a complaint or sarcastic comment about it being good or bad and that’s that. When you do find a proper review they try so hard to sell the product to you that you feel offended and click away to another site.

It takes me hours to do research on a product, reading every one’s take on the subject, looking at it from every angle and eventually I make that decision! Then after all the hours of research I now know exactly what make and model I want to buy but then comes the next big hurdle…finding that specific product on a website which actually ships to my country, South Africa!

I know they say the internet is convenient…but no one ever said anything about how time consuming it can be to find something, not to talk about all the scams, advertisements, pop-ups and sneaky email spammers out there. Sometimes trying to find the right information is like finding that needle in a hay stack which happens to be in the middle of a lion’s den.

So I have this DREAM

What if there was a website which listed a honest user review of every product or service under the sun?

A bit far fetched? Well what is a website without a dream?

About this dreamer girl

My name is Michell, I live with my family, way out on a farm in Limpopo, South Africa. The nearest town is 70 kilometers away. My favorite pass time (well it is actually my job) is doing research on every product our busy farm life needs. Keeping up with the latest technology and implementing it into our DIY lives where we still milk the cow, mend our own socks, cut each other’s hair, grow our own vegetables and live off the grid.

You can imagine how the internet is an important part of our lives and how someone like me needs a proper review site where I can find all the information I need on products and services so that I can decide what would be the best thing for me.  I can’t just jump in the car and go and buy a security system from our local supermarket. I also can’t get a cable guy out to fix my TV…they will charge me an arm and a leg.

The Problem! And How you can HELP!

It is impossible for a simple farm girl like myself to try and create a review for every product under the sun…BUT…what if you and every other person out there will help me?

Do you feel the same way about reviews? Do you need a website where you can go and find an honest review from a real user, warning you about the pitfalls or recommending the right product for you?

Then why not help me and send me your reviews! Did you buy a vacuum cleaner recently? How about a new sofa set? TV? Shoes? Baby Monitor? Car? Golf clubs? Hunting gear? Smart watch? Phone? Anything?

Then tell us about it! Let’s help each other and let’s get this dream going. Share this page with your friends on social media and send me your reviews.

I am inviting all product owners to write a review – This is how to go about it:

Email your reviews to

Remember to send us the pictures too! Lots of pictures and lots of information.

Download our guide on how to write a review here or simply fill out the review template.

Once your review was inspected it will be published on the website. Be sure to send us your Facebook link or any other social media link and we will ad it to your review so that people can send you a message if they need to!

We aim to give you Whooping Reviews because we had a Whooping time writing them… yes… and because you deserve the truth!

Feel free to leave you comments below if you feel excited about this!

The Wealthy Affiliate Scam or…?

The Wealthy Affiliate Scam or….LOADS FOR FREE?

Have you ever been scammed? Or should I rather say have you ever been angry at advertisers who try to trick you into buying stuff?

I have…and I hate sales persons for that. I understand that we all have to make a living and that we all need to sell our stuff but the aggressive way they go about it…that, I do not like.

See this is how it happened for me…

I have had a website for 10 years. I have been paying for the yearly domain renewal, the web hosting and even the guy who manages it all- but no traffic and no one knows about our business. Our Facebook page was doing better than my web page. Everyone just said: Google Adwords!!! But even that did not do it. It just ate all my profits.

Then I started browsing and searching…I looked into everything I could find for free. I came across a few sites that were claiming that they can teach me how to get ranked. They were offering free webinars, free PDF books, free newsletters…free…that was the word I was looking for. I sat through hours of these free webinars and funnel hacking and inspiring stories of guys telling how they were broke and then got into online marketing and now they are making millions. At the end of all the aggressive selling I had to listen to over and over I just could not afford to buy their training even if I wanted to. The cheapest training they were selling started at $99 and if I don’t buy straight away the offer will expire…

Then I came across Wealthy Affiliate!

I was actually reading a review on one of the other online marketing sites when this guy who wrote the review said that he was a scam victim and bought this other site’s marketing program. When he got to $15000 (which he paid) he still felt he did not get value for money. This review pointed me to Wealthy Affiliate because they give so much for FREE! No aggressive selling, no emotional manipulation and no catch.

Obviously I was interested and I joined because it was free. It was the best decision I ever made. Let me tell you what you get for free at Wealthy Affiliate:

What you get for free at Wealthy Affiliate:

  • For the first 7 days after signing up you get to take part in the entire community at Wealthy Affiliate. There are lots of friendly people who are all willing to help any newbie. Kyle and Carson (the founders) are available and very caring about their community.
  • In the first 10 free lessons you learn how to build a website and they actually give you a free website and teach you how to build it. Kyle made very thorough teaching videos and they actually allow you to build 25 free websites on their platform with no charge.
  • They teach you the basics of what is needed to be indexed by Google and the other search engines. With step by step instructions Kyle shows you how to add the settings to your website and teach you about keywords and how to find great keywords that will rank in Google without you needing to pay for them.
Their loving and Caring approach and my Conclusion

I liked their loving approach to what they do so much that I signed up for a month. They had a special offer of just $19 for the month. I figured I could afford that and I will just have to dive into the training as quickly as I can. They have like a ‘Facebook networking’ approach where others can follow you and help you out. Before I knew it I had a following and I was buying the yearly subscription.

What you get when you pay for a month at Wealthy Affiliate

Obviously you can stop paying any time and no one is forcing you to do anything. That is what I liked the most. That and the really good quality of teaching materials.

They have a hosting platform. When you choose to build your site on their platform you don’t have to pay extra for that and it includes the SEO plugins and image optimizer plugins as well as all the other hundreds of WordPress plugins and themes you can ever need.

You can buy your own domain straight from them with the guarantee that the price will not go up! Or they allow you integrate your own domain into their hosting platform. All with step by step instructions.

Then you get all that free training. There are tons of training. Some qualified members also create training and if you work yourself up to that level you can receive incentives for that. Plus live weekly webinars or watch it later if you can’t make it.

They have a free keyword finder tool. Kyle also recommends how to use it, how to find good keywords and use them in such a way that your pages shows up in Google or other search engines without paying to advertise.

Great content writing techniques and tips. Did you know that posts with comments rank better in search engines? Their helpful community will help and comment on your pages to give you a start. My new website was ranked by Google within a week. I could not believe it!

Lots of training on WordPress. I have created a site or two before but knowing that I have all the help I could ever need right there in the platform gave me so much more confidence. I am now able to get rid of the guy who manages my website and I can do it all myself!

Whether you are looking to become an online marketing agent, building your own websites or joining affiliate programs this is the place where they will teach you how to make money.

Just remember you have to give to receive! They have a real paying it forward approach. The more you help the others in the Wealthy Affiliate community the more help you get. Thank you, Wealthy Affiliate, I love to be part of your family!

With Love
