8.2 Transcript Below
What’s going on, FIMP family?
So, you’re going through all of these training up to this point. You’ve completed hours and hours of self-development and you’ve got to be asking yourself: “What now? I’m coming to the end of the FIMP training, and now what do I do?” And that’s what this video is all about.
And I want to drive one thing home. I can’t emphasize this strongly enough, stop this video now unless you’ve finished all of the other training at FIMP, and at the very least, you have completed all of the following: you’ve picked your first niche, you’ve registered your domain, you’ve installed WordPress on your website – if you signed up with Bluehost, it’s automatically installed on your primary domain.
And ideally, these two aren’t required, but I would really like to see you at this point before watching this video. Because otherwise, it’s just going to complicate things for you a little bit too much: you’ve, at least, picked a handful of keywords, and hopefully, you’ve written at least your first 2 to 3 articles on your website.
So, those would be ideal. But at the very least: picked your niche, registered your domain, and WordPress is installed on your website.
So, I can’t overemphasize this: seriously, please stop this video. I know people jump around all of the time. I know tons of people skip Section 2 because they see mindset. And even though I say, over and over again: “watch Section 2, it’s usually helpful”, they skip it.
So, I know that there are going to be people that are hearing me now and going: “Ah, no, I can keep watching”. Stop this video. It’s just going to overcomplicate things, it’s going to make things confusing unless you have finished all of the other training and done everything that I just mentioned, okay?
Seriously, please stop this video if you haven’t finished everything that I just talked about.
If you’re still watching… Seriously. I assume we’re good. Okay.
So, if you have finished all of that, I want to give you a huge congratulations. It’s a really big deal, because only 10% of people finish the training at FIMP. Even though it’s 100% free, even though it’s really step-by-step, and it doesn’t leave a whole lot of margin for error, believe it or not, only 10% of people actually complete all of the training at FIMP.
And my main focus shifts from getting you through all of the training at FIMP, because you’re obviously a self-starter and you’re really motivated, and you’re really ambitious, and you’re taking this very seriously – which is kind of important if you actually want to succeed online.
My goal is to take you from the one in ten that finishes FIMP to the one in one hundred that actually build a profitable online business.
We’ve talked about this a lot since the beginning, that it’s very few and far between when it comes to how many people succeed online and actually build a profitable business.
So, that’s what this video is about; getting you from the one in ten that finish FIMP, to the one in one hundred that are actually going to build a long-term profitable business that lasts, alright?
And that comes down to where you’re at now versus where you need to be, to be that one in one hundred.
So, right now you have the strongest foundation you can possibly get online. I don’t say that to toot my own horn. You know, I’ve just been doing this for a very long time. I’ve seen hundreds upon hundreds, thousands of people over the years attempt to build an online business.
And what has been great about that is I’ve seen a lot of people try a lot of things, and it’s made me recognize all of the patterns that lead to success and all of the patterns that lead to failure.
And that’s what ultimately drove me to create FIMP, and put it into the world, and put it into the world for free – was because I wanted to set as many people up for success as I possibly could.
Even if you stopped here, there are so many products out there that will say: “Okay, now that you’ve finished this, you need to invest in this $500 thing, or this $1,000 thing. Because without it, there’s no way you’re going to be successful.”
And they almost lead you to believe that you need something else, that’s going to make them money, whether it’s their own product or something they’re getting commissioned on.
“You need something else if you want any chance at success” – and that’s not at all true with FIMP. If you stop right here and you didn’t invest in anything else, you have everything you need to succeed online, period.
You just have to work the system, you have to stick with it, you have to be consistent, you have to put in the work, okay? So, just stick closely to the training at FIMP, and that’s all you need. Legitimately. Okay?
But, I do want to say, the more you learn in this industry, the more you’ll succeed. One of the reasons I’ve achieved the levels of success that I’ve achieved now is because I never stop learning.
There was a point, a few years in, where I stopped, I got complacent, and my my entire internet business failed. And I vowed to never make that mistake ever again in my online business.
So, I constantly keep self-developing. And I strongly recommend, as a FIMP finisher, that you do the same. Because that’s what’s going to set you up for success, the best.
And the thing that will help you the most, the best thing you can do for your success at this stage in the journey based on where people begin to fail from here out, is to get plugged in to an active internet marketing community that’s going to help you, that you can continue self-developing and most importantly, you can feel that those people are side-by-side, you’re standing shoulder-to-shoulder with thousands of other people that are on the same journey as you.
Because this industry can get really lonely. And one of the biggest reasons people fail online is because they feel like they’re in it just by themselves and nobody else they know is going through these struggles, nobody else understands what they’re going through, all of the hard hours they’re putting in, and ultimately they just give up because they just can’t connect with other humans that are on the same journey as they are. And I, personally, gave up several times early in my journey because of that, too.
And that’s what this video is about – is getting you connected into a community where you can keep learning, you can keep growing, but most importantly, you can get connected with like-minded people that are going to be there to support you, be there to help you when you get stuck, and all kinds of other things. So that’s what we’re going to talk about here.
And what I’m about to recommend is, you know… there have been a handful of occasions in the Free Internet Marketing Project where I recommended premium tools… premium resources.
And this is one of those rare cases where I’m going to recommend something that’s actually a paid resource instead of a free resource, only because there’s no free resource out there that compares to it.
Even in the community at FIMP, and the training at FIMP, and the Facebook community for members, nothing compares to what I’m about to recommend, alright?
And you’ll see that. Fortunately, you can see that for free. I’ll explain that a little bit later.
But there are two types of people that are watching this video. There are going to be the people that have watched all of the training and you know, beyond the shadow of a doubt, that I would never recommend something simply for an affiliate commission.
You know, if that’s why I got into this industry… I’ve been doing this now, I’ve been on this side of the industry for 10 years. I’ve worked very hard to preserve my reputation, which is not an easy thing to do in this industry.
I could’ve made a hell of a lot more money, and I would be making a hell of a lot more money today if I just sacrificed my ethics and my morals and said: “I’m just going to recommend things for the affiliate commissions.”
So, hopefully, by this point, you know that I practice what I preach. And that I’m all about delivering value. And my number one priority is always your success, not my bank account.
And if you don’t believe me, and you’re made uncomfortable by this, just don’t buy it through me. Buy it outside of my affiliate link, which is below this video, and just cut me out. And that way you can go: “Oh, okay. Ian doesn’t care whether or not he makes a commission. He’s going to recommend it anyway.” Because that’s the case, I would greatly appreciate it if you help FIMP stay funded by purchasing through my affiliate link. But if that bothers you, then just don’t do it.
And then, there’s the other people that are going to be watching this, and no matter what I say, you think I went to all of this effort, and I spent hundreds of hours creating FIMP, and I continue to spend hundreds of hours every year maintaining the community, growing, helping people just to sell you something.
And if that’s where you’re at, there’s just not much I can do to convince you outside of what I’ve already done. I apologize, but I’m not even going to try. There’s just… I know where my heart’s at, and hopefully you know too. I’m not going to get stuck on this, I can get stuck on things. Hopefully, you belong in the first category. But at the same time, you can’t win them all.
So, the community I’m talking about, some of you may be familiar with, you may be experienced in, you may be of heard about it in the past and it’s called Wealthy Affiliate.
And it’s far from perfect. Even if you’ve heard about it in the past, I guarantee you haven’t heard the perspective I’m about to give on it. Because people like to talk about all the sunshine, and rainbows, and daisies, and all of the gumdrops, all of the great things about Wealthy Affiliate.
But there are a lot of things that aren’t great about Wealthy Affiliate. But there is no other place like it. I’ll talk about that a little bit later too. And at the end of the day, there is no place that I feel like you could get plugged into at this point that’s going to set you up for success better than Wealthy Affiliate, including the FIMP Facebook community. These guys are years, and years ahead of anyone else. And I’ll talk about that later.
But the first thing I want to talk about is the reasons that Wealthy Affiliate sucks. Just flat out. Because I don’t believe in sugarcoating things and I would want someone to be honest with me about these things on the front-end. So, that’s of course, what I’m going to do for you.
The things that I don’t like about Wealthy Affiliate are their foundational training, the stuff that you’ve just gone through at FIMP and everything you’ve learned, isn’t as thorough as I’d prefer it to be.
The training at Wealthy Affiliate probably is about 25% to 30% as thorough as FIMP’s training is. And that’s important because what you get as your foundation is going to shape your success forever.
I mean, if you stay in this industry for 10 or 15 years, the stuff you’ve developed at FIMP, wherever you’ve developed your foundational training, will determine a lot of your success along the way.
And so, of course you don’t really have to worry about that too much because you’ve gone through all of the FIMP training. So, that one’s kind of knocked out, that’s, you know, no concern there. But that’s the one of my biggest problems at Wealthy Affiliate.
And one of the reasons that I created FIMP was to give people a stronger foundation than the number 1 place for beginner internet marketers online was giving. Even they weren’t thorough enough. So that’s one of the reasons I set out to create FIMP.
Another thing, and this isn’t just something I don’t like about Wealthy Affiliate. This is something I despise about Wealthy Affiliate. It’s just the only thing I despise about Wealthy Affiliate, and I am a very vocal opponent of this. They have something called Wealthy Affiliate Bootcamp, it’s abbreviated WA Bootcamp. And it’s all about… you’ve probably seen this in other programs, as well. It’s all about becoming successful by promoting their product.
This rolled out, I want to say somewhere around 3 years ago. I have disliked it since it begin. Like I said, I’ve been a very vocal opponent of it. There’s a post on StoppingScams.com about why I don’t think anyone should do Wealthy Affiliate Bootcamp.
So, when you get in there, just know to avoid that. It’s something that I make sure any one I refer into Wealthy Affiliate knows to avoid. I’ll talk about it more in another video down the road. But at the end of the day, it just doesn’t set you up for success like their other path of training and community support does.
And sometimes because it’s a community filled with a lot of newer internet marketers, some pretty crazy stuff gets taught and perpetuated. Things like: Backlinks don’t work. Even when google themselves… you know, there have been engineers and analysts from Google that have come out. And year after year, there are more of them that come out and say: “Hey! Backlinks are still the number one thing that influences rankings”
So, to say backlinks don’t work, really bothers me. Because even Google is telling us that they’re going to continue to be dependent on backlinks as a number one indicator, the number one signal for rankings for years to come.
They are getting more advanced, they are things that are improving, their algorithm is factoring in more things outside of links. But links are still very important. You have to be smart about how you do it, right? We’ve talked about that some.
You don’t want to build backlinks like you used to in 2010 or 2005. But they’re still important, right? And I take issue with any community that says backlinks don’t work. Because it’s pretty clear, by any good data you look at, that backlinks are still really important.
Another thing that comes from the very top of Wealthy Affiliate that I don’t care for very much, personally, based on my experience, is that comments are one of the biggest factors for search engine optimization and search engine rankings.
You know, basically right now, I’m knocking out the top things that you will see in Wealthy Affiliate, you’ll go: “Ah, this is different than what Ian said.” So, I would just say, Ignore them. There’s a lot of good stuff there, too.
But I, personally, have never seen good data, I don’t see good data for my own websites – and I own several of them that shows that comments are one of the biggest factors for rankings.
It would also be really idiotic for Google to do that because it’s one of the easiest things to game. It’s one of the easiest things to fake. And Wealthy Affiliate actually even has like comment exchanges and stuff built into their community, just don’t waste any time with that.
So, yeah, I’m, personally, of the belief that you get traffic and you get more comments, not you get comments and you get more traffic and more rankings. So, it’s a matter of chicken before the egg. And again, I’ve done thorough research, I’ve looked for it and looked for it, and I just have not seen any convincing data that shows that comments lead the rankings, rather than rankings lead the comments, okay?
So, the good thing about all of this is that not only in this video am I here telling you avoid these things, and setting you up for success in the Wealthy Affiliate community that way, but I personally coach every one of my referrals at Wealthy Affiliate on what to avoid.
They have some really cool systems in place that allow me to do that without a whole lot of effort. And so, you’re never going to have to worry about any of those kind of potholes in Wealthy Affiliate, that if you were referred in by someone else, you would potentially fall into. Because basically, what I’m doing through Wealthy Affiliate and through this video is I’m patching those potholes so you never trip over the things that could compromise or jeopardize your success. Okay?
So, now that I’ve talked about the things that I, personally, think suck at Wealthy Affiliate, I want to tell you the reasons that I’ve been at Wealthy Affiliate for over 5 years.
I joined in October 2012. So I’ve been a Wealthy Affiliate premium member, I will continue to be a Wealthy Affiliate premium member. The guys that founded it, the co-founders, their hearts are in the right place. They’ve had opportunity, after opportunity, after opportunity to kind of shift into that really immoral side of internet marketing and do some shady stuff, and they never have.
What they have demonstrated through their training and through the way they’ve built Wealthy Affiliate over the years is that we’re very like-minded. Where I’m at… and I try very hard to be ethical and guide people without thinking about my own monetary gain, and just help people become successful. They have done that over and over again but for many more years than I have, even.
So, the reasons I’ve been a Wealthy Affiliate member for over 5 years is that there is so much training on topics that FIMP doesn’t cover yet. And I want to cover in the future, and I want to cover really in-depth, but with me working on my own internet marketing businesses, it’s a very difficult thing for me to do.
I still have every intention to, I still plan to, and I will continue to record training. But in the mean time, there’s no better place you can go to continue your education and build on that foundation that you’ve poured at FIMP than Wealthy Affiliate. There is no safer community online.
Like I said, they’ve been doing this for years. And just between their own training and all of the training that other members have posted, and other experienced internet marketers have posted, there is a massive training library at Wealthy Affiliate that FIMP just can’t touch. And they’re years ahead, and it continues to grow almost exponentially. So, it’s going to be very difficult to keep up. So, I think you’ll really love that. And that’s one of the reasons I love it.
There are also weekly live webinars by a guy that really knows his stuff. He’s a veteran internet marketer, he runs his own local SEO business, and has a lot of really noteworthy clients, and also does a lot of affiliate marketing, as well. Ans his name is Jay.
And Jay is just a brilliant internet marketer. There are very few people in this industry that are better to learn from. And literally, every single week, he does a live webinar at the end of the week. And his material is just outstanding. He’s a great teacher.
There’s just nowhere else you can go for as cheap as the monthly dues are at Wealthy Affiliate, and get access to someone live, one-on-one, like Jay at Wealthy Affiliate. And so, that’s definitely… that alone is worth the investment at Wealthy Affiliate. But there’s so much more beyond that, as well.
And some of the community’s most knowledgeable members and veteran internet marketers (myself included) regularly add training to the community. Regularly blog about things that we’re learning. But also, something that I’ll be doing a lot more of now is I’m creating video training for Wealthy Affiliate. Just putting that into the community, and of course you would have access to all of that as well in the Wealthy Affiliate community.
And so, like I said earlier too, the community engagement and support is just unbeatable. You can’t go anywhere else and find a community like Wealthy Affiliate. It’s just such a safe place, it’s monitored so closely. It’s just incredible, what they’ve created there.
You know, there were… a couple of years ago, when bootcamp really started to gain a lot of traction. A lot of people are going into it, and I, personally, from the very beginning, didn’t feel like that set people up for success very well.
And I was really upset that it was becoming as popular and as prevalent within the community as it did. And I looked around for days on end to find a place that I could refer people to that was better than Wealthy Affiliate, and a safer community overall. And I just couldn’t find it – no exaggeration, I could not find it.
And at the end of the day, I mean, I’ve kept my eye out over the years and we’ve reviewed hundreds of products as StoppingScams, and nothing else comes close to Wealthy Affiliate.
So, ultimately, what I decided was instead of stopping promoting Wealthy Affiliate altogether, was I started using their systems that they haven’t placed for me to stay connected to my referrals. And like I said, kind of patching those potholes to make sure you never fall into them. Because there just is no other place that you can end up that’s better than Wealthy Affiliate. And it takes a lot for me to say that about a product.
After all of these years, there are very few places that I have been impressed by, but there is only one place that I would give a… I would say an unqualified recommendation, but I have qualified this recommendation a lot. There’s just nowhere that I would recommend stronger than Wealthy Affiliate. You’re just not going to find a better place online to keep growing and keep plugged in to a community.
And the best thing of all is because of the systems in place, they have some incredible support tools for their members like me. I can personally guide and mentor every single one of my referrals into Wealthy Affiliate. And that’s really special for me. It allows me to have a much more one-on-one relationship and keep tabs on your journey a lot easier. And there’s just no way I can do that using something like a Facebook group, because Facebook does not have the tools built-in to help make that efficient like Wealthy Affiliate does.
And so, one of the nice things about Wealthy Affiliate, especially now that you’ve finished FIMP and I know you’re serious about this journey, is we can connect on more of a one-on-one level. And whenever you can’t find what you need at Wealthy Affiliate, or you post a question and nobody answers or gives the answer that you were looking for, you can always reach out to me, individually.
I know that early in FIMP I talked about how you need to be very independent and don’t be you know, pinging me for every single question. You have there a lot of things that you can Google.
And you know, the nice thing about Wealthy Affiliate is that they have systems in place that allow me to have that one-on-one relationship, without it being super time-consuming.
So, you know, that basically takes us down to… I know this is getting a little bit long-winded, but it’s something I’m really passionate about. And again, it’s something that in order for you to go in and have success, you have to go about it a very specific way.
So, I apologize for taking up so much time for this video. But at the end of the day, this is what I truly believe sets you up for success best, so I didn’t want to just make a quick 5-minute video and move on.
So, if all of this sounds good to you and you’re interested in checking it out, you can check it out for free. They have something called a “Starter” account. And if you want to do it through my affiliate link and support FIMP and also, you know, get access to the resources that my referrals get… unfortunately, the only way my referrals get that information is if they’re tagged as one of my referrals because it’s built into Wealthy Affiliate’s system.
This is the link you would use: it’s stoppingscams.com/fimpfinisher (all one word, all lowercase). And you can check it out for free. I don’t get commissioned if you check it out for free. This is an affiliate link. It does keep FIMP funded, but only if you upgrade to premium, Ultimately, because you decide it’s good fit for you and where you’re at on your journey.
So, after you create a free account, fill-out your profile just really briefly. You don’t have to do anything super fancy, but upload an image and post your description about yourself, introduce yourself to the community.
And please stop by my profile (you can skip this one step, if you want to). I would love to know that you made it. I would love to know that you went through FIMP, and then you decided: “Okay, I’m going to keep growing, I’m going to keep developing, I’m really serious about this. So, Ian, I ended up at Wealthy Affiliate.”
So, please stop by my profile and just say hi. Just introduce yourself really quickly if we haven’t already connected. And if we have already connected, just let me know you made into Wealthy Affiliate. Because that’s really special for me, to know that a community that I’ve been a member of, and I’m so passionate about – someone from FIMP made it in there, as well.
So, my profile is “Pribs” (P-R-I-B-S), and you can just search that on their platform and you’ll find my profile, and stop by and introduce yourself.
And then, you know, the best part of Wealthy Affiliate, just start interacting with the community. They have a live chat feature, they have the ability to post questions, and you can do a lot of that for the first several days that you’re a free member. If you decide to upgrade, you get unlimited access to the community, and posting in the community, and stuff. But you at least get a taste of it, early on.
And one thing I do want to mention is, you know, in the free starter account at Wealthy Affiliate, you do get access to some training. At the free level, it’s lower level than what you’ve already gotten at FIMP – which is great. It speaks volume as to what we’re doing at FIMP. But at the same time, just know that that is not representative of the plethora of training that becomes available to you after you upgraded to premium.
They have several levels of what’s called “Online Entrepreneur Certification”, I’ll talk about that here in a minute. They have 5 levels and they’re continuing to add to them. You would pick up at level 3 – is where FIMP has left off.
So, you only get access to level 1, as a free member. So that’s not going to be very representative, or very helpful for you if you’ve already completed FIMP, just know that.
And know that if you do like the community, and you like what they’re doing at Wealthy Affiliate, and you decide to invest in their premium membership, which is $19 your first month and $49 every month thereafter. There are some discounts for an annual membership too. But if you decide to do that, you’ll get access to the premium training, as well; which is where you would continue learning, continue growing, and continue developing.
So, the other thing is, I mentioned some of the systems at Wealthy Affiliate has in place for me to stay in touch with you, and keep tabs on you, and guide you, check in on you, et cetera. One of those things is automated messages that I get to post to your profile at Wealthy Affiliate. So keep an eye on your profile for those, again, full disclosure automated messages from me that I’ve put in place.
But, if you ever get stuck, or you look at one of the questions I asked in one of those automated messages and you go: “No, I do really need help with this”, reply to it because I personally receive every single one of those, and I personally respond to every single one of those.
So, although I have some automated messages set up at Wealthy Affiliate, it’s one of the things that enables me to have that more one-on-one coach/mentor relationship with the people that I refer over to Wealthy Affiliate.
So, keep an eye on your profile and on your inbox, if you decide to upgrade to premium. Because I am always just one reply away from my referrals at Wealthy Affiliate, if you decide you need a little bit of help.
So, I just mentioned this too, if you decide to invest in a premium membership and you get access to the premium training, pick up where we left off in the Online Entrepreneur Certification level 3. And I’ll post a link to that below this video as well, so you can just click directly over. But again, you won’t be able to access it until you have a premium account. It’s not accessible through the free starter account. Alright?
So, I want to knock out, before we tie off here, just a couple of questions that are probably on a lot of your minds. And I know, if you don’t have them on your mind right now, they’re going to come up. I’ll just blow through these really quick.
One of them is: Do I need Bluehost or external hosting since Wealthy Affiliate premium includes hosting?
The answer is absolutely yes. In my personal opinion, Wealthy Affiliate has a lot of cool features built into their hosting platform, they also have some limitations. But at the end of the day, if you build your website there, you get trapped into, essentially, $49 a month hosting. If you ever want to cancel your account, and then you have to go through the hassle of transferring your websites out of Wealthy Affiliate to an external host.
So, it’s cheap enough, that from the very beginning, I just recommend hosting externally. That way, when you do decide that you want to leave Wealthy Affiliate, whether it’s a month down the road, or 3 months down the road, or 8 months down the road, not everyone’s going to become a Wealthy Affiliate member for over 5 years, like I have been, you can continue to have access to your websites and not lose access to them because you cancel your Wealthy Affiliate membership.
Another thing that people ask a lot is: Should I use Jaaxy (which is Wealthy Affiliate’s keyword tool) or LongTail Pro (which I teach as the premium keyword tool in FIMP)?
If you’ve invested in LongTail Pro, absolutely, hands down, use it over Jaaxy. The data is better, the competition data is more reliable, the keyword search volume is more reliable, it’s just all around much better, more reliable tool.
But if you can’t afford LongTail Pro, Wealthy Affiliate’s free version of Jaaxy is better than nothing. They’ve got a really cool engine built into that that’s very good for suggesting keywords. But just make sure that you still use the free tools taught at FIMP. I believe that’s video 5.5, The Free Keyword Planner, Google Keyword Planner, and the Moz bar to check competition. Just double-check the keywords you’re finding in Jaaxy, still. Because the data just isn’t as reliable as I would prefer it to be.
I know they’re constantly improving that, too. But as of right now, as I record this video, just continue to set yourself up for success, as well as possible, using the tools taught at FIMP, as well. But Jaaxy can help a lot if you don’t have the money to afford a premium keyword tool.
And, you know, one of the biggest questions I see coming up at this point is… okay, you’ve taught me a ton at FIMP and you’re going to see some overlap at Wealthy Affiliate and you’re going to go: “Well, how the hell do I actually get the most out of my membership at Wealthy Affiliate?”
Pick up where FIMP left off at the Online Entrepreneur Certification level 3, if you decide to upgrade to premium. Get plugged in to the Wealthy Affiliate community because it is just an outstanding community.
One of the best ways to learn is to teach. I have found that over and over again in everything I’ve done in my life. And you will have plenty of opportunities to help other people and teach.
Obviously, you don’t want to get too caught up in that because it takes time away from your business, and that should be your main focus. But at the end of the day, the more you teach other people in the Wealthy Affiliate community because you have gotten a better foundation than they have at Wealthy Affiliate, the better that’s going to solidify and make more concrete your own understanding of internet business and set you up for long term success.
So, get plugged in to the community, ask questions when you have them yourself, help other people when you have answers to their questions, as long as it’s not taking too much time away from your business. And you’re going to love that. That community is just outstanding, and it is unmatched, unparalleled across the rest of the internet marketing world.
Attend the live weekly webinars by Jay. There are always replays too, if you can’t attend live. Check those out because he’s one of the most knowledgeable members in Wealthy Affiliate.
And drop me a message if you’re ever stuck anywhere. Again, this is one of the biggest advantages to having a Wealthy Affiliate membership is that they have the systems and tools in place for me to have that more one-on-one relationship.
And also, the nice thing is, by this point, especially in this video if you’re still watching, a lot of people have been weeded out throughout the FIMP training. So, it kind of, separates, to live this to the very end, it separates the people that are serious about their success and those that aren’t.
So, I don’t get overwhelmed by this huge support burden by a lot of people that aren’t ever going to take this very seriously. I know you’re serious, I know you’re ambitious, I know you’re committed to this journey, so I want us to have that one-on-one relationship. And the best way for that to happen is through Wealthy Affiliate’s platform. Thanks to the tools and support features that they built in, that I have access to.
So, if you get stuck anywhere, if you can’t get the help you need from the community, drop me a messages, post to my profile, whatever, get in touch with me so that I can help you personally. Alright?
So, I know it’s been a long video. Thanks for hanging in there with me through it all. I guess it’s fitting that we finished again. This is such an important video. Where you go from here will determine so much about your success online.
And I just want to congratulate you for finishing FIMP. That is such a huge accomplishment. And I don’t want to undermine that by just going: “Hey! Alright, you’re done! Now here’s another assignment.”
But at the end of the day, the best thing for you, and the best thing for your success is to get plugged in to a community and keep learning, and keep growing, and don’t become complacent or stagnant. And I know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that the best way to keep you moving forward is to stay in touch with, more of, a one-on-one relationship through Wealthy Affiliate.
So, I hope you’ve enjoyed this video. I hope you’ve enjoyed all of the FIMP training. I have no doubt that you will enjoy the Wealthy Affiliate community, if you decide to get plugged in.

If you’re uncomfortable with me making a commission if you upgrade to premium, just go ahead and head straight over to Wealthy Affiliate. But I would greatly appreciate your support for what I’m trying to do at Free Internet Marketing Project if you would create an account through my Wealthy Affiliate link, posted below this video.
And I look forward to seeing you there. I look forward to, hopefully, continuing to see you around the FIMP Facebook community, as well. And most importantly, I look forward to seeing where you end up several months or several years down the road.
And, hopefully, we get you to that one in one hundred that not only finish FIMP, but built a successful, profitable, long-term internet business that helped you change your life.
So, thank you all so much for sticking with me through this long, long, long video. And for completing the FIMP training. I truly hope it helps you change your life.
I’ll be around if you need me. Take care. And I hope to talk to you soon.
