In some instances – like when the affiliate link is embedded in your product review – a single disclosure may be adequate. When the review has a clear and conspicuous disclosure of your relationship and the reader can see both the review containing that disclosure and the link at the same time, readers have the information they need. You could say something like, “I get commissions for purchases made through links in this post.” But if the product review containing the disclosure and the link are separated, readers may not make the connection.
My name is Nathaniell and you found WA through my site. I remember the comment you left, and I specifically told you to contact me within the website because the basic training did not apply to you and I could find you training that would be more suitable to your needs. I guess you didn't read the response, because you went ahead and went through the training anyway.
Don’t feel bad though when I first started I did the same exact thing that you did. I posted ads and click bank links but I got no sales. I would suggest that when you join under me you use a new email and username that way you can start over fresh and I can get you started down the right path. To answer your last question, there really isn’t no answer for this because everyone is different.
WA isn’t a domain registrar so you would need to purchase your domains from either Go Daddy or Namecheap. If you do a search on Google for coupon codes you can usually acquire your own domain for only $1 for your first year and this will end up costing you $10-12 a year after that. You can add plugins to your site so that you can have a shopping cart on your site and be able to accept PayPal/credit cards eCommerce as well.
You also should not join Wealthy Affiliate if you don’t enjoy the community / social aspect of it. A huge part of Wealthy Affiliate is the ability to communicate with other members. It’s a “help and be helped” community. If you have no interest in setting up your profile, asking questions, supporting others, chatting in the live chat sessions, or doing any sort of participation, you will not get the full benefit of the service.

Hi Candice, This varies because everyone’s level of learning is different. If you are willing to spend at least an hour or two a day on this and you give it everything you got then I would say in a 6 months time you should be making money by that time. It is really hard to say how much you could be making but I would think any amount would be good. I will give you a little background into my experience when I first started doing this, I also had no experience whatsoever. I started this a little over a year ago and it took me a little longer to catch on then it does most people.
You get the products from signing up for affiliate programs. There are thousands of different affiliate programs on the internet which are FREE to sign up with. Whatever you are passionate about and would like to promote on your website you can join their affiliate program. The most popular ones are Amazon,Walmart, and Best buy or Target. After you sign up with these companies they will give you affiliate links which you will put on your website. Whenever someone clicks your link and buys the product that you recommended you will receive a commission for that sale.
Regarding your other question, the overwhelming information is for those who are just starting online and don’t know anything at all about online marketing. But if you follow the training step-by-step there is no issue at all. The webinars are oriented either for new people or for advanced so, I recommend that you first join those webinars targeted to newbies.
ANOTHER marketing scheme for you to harrass your friends with and beg them to work-from-home and make money by blogging about what they 'love', when they will really end up monitoring one blog, the one that pays them for every fool who follows that yellow brick to Wealthy Affiliates and the dope behind the curtain. If you know anything about internet marketing already, you will see right through this.
I have just talked to Kyle(Co owner of WA) and he said that India is one of the countries where the starter membership isn’t available. The only other option would be if you could select a different country and try to join that way. If that doesn’t work then you would need to go premium from the start. You can get your first month at a highly discounted rate of only $19 for your first month.
As a WA member, I have shared my website as others have shared theirs with me. There are also excellent course modules that take you step by step on web set. Yes, there are those whose only interest is selling WA membership…. it’s easy and not as time consuming as starting a niche business. Personally, I promote the membership and will continue to do so until my web business launches.
I am absolutely floored by your review! It is the most in-depth, thorough, creative, and satisfying review I have ever, EVER read! All my questions are answered. I joined in August and have had life interfer with my plans of moving forward with WA. I guess I was losing motivation and by doing so, I allowed simple things to manipulate my progress. But, I have to tell you, after reading your review, it has absolutely kicked my arse into gear, and I, or I should say you, got my motor running! I dare say, every newbie MUST read this post! It is not only motivational and inspirational, it is spectacular!! I must ask though…what was your career before WA? Some great orator or speech writer??? God bless you and your talent!
I have been searching for an opportunity like Wealthy Affiliate for close to 20 years now and I am so glad that I was able to find it. Since then, I have made it my mission to help other people do the same thing and help them avoid all the scams that are in the Internet world as you have called it. When I first started this website I didn’t know the first thing about how to build or design a website and I owe everything to WA for showing me how everything works.
He has made lots of success in the time he’s been here and I know that you could as well if you are willing to work hard at this and make a long term commitment to building a business online. I will also be there to help you out and answer any questions you may have along the way. I would suggest that you get started by clicking on the become a member button above. Fill out a few simple details and you’re in. I will be contacting you within 60 mins of you joining to welcome you to the community and answer any questions you may have getting started.
You can actually get started for free with absolutely NO risk and NO catches. There is a starter membership which I have listed everything that you will get when you join as a free member in my review above. This includes everything you need to get started building the foundation of your website along with the proper tools and the right amount of help and support when you need it the most.
