If you set your mind to it you can achieve anything if you are willing to work hard at it. 80% of people who start out in affiliate marketing end up failing because they either don’t have the right training or they get overwhelmed with everything you need to learn to succeed in this business. If you are willing to work hard at this you can make lots of money but it’s not going to come easy.
Yes you can use the websites that WA provides you with to market just about any product or service out there. There is unlimited potential to promote a variety of different things and the training they provide on how to get traffic and sales is the best that I have ever seen and I have tried hundreds of different programs. No matter what business you are in I believe that everyone can benefit from the service that WA provides. I would suggest that you sign up for your FREE account and get started on the training. If you need help getting everything setup let me know and I will be glad to offer you a helping hand.
I first joined Wealthy Affiliate in June of 2016 mostly to just see what it was all about. I signed up for a free account at Wealthy Affiliate but upgraded to their paid Premium membership the very next day. Now that I’ve been with Wealthy Affiliate for about 7 months, I decided it’s finally time to write a Wealthy Affiliate review with my findings on whether this is a good program to sign up with or not.
I love WA because they are honest about what it takes to succeed. They don’t lie to people telling them that they can earn quick money by doing these simple things. If you want to succeed online then you have to be willing to work. And WA provides all the tools you need to succeed. Plus, the community of like-minded people is always ready to help. I’d recommend WA to anyone.
In the case of cost per mille/click, the publisher is not concerned about whether a visitor is a member of the audience that the advertiser tries to attract and is able to convert, because at this point the publisher has already earned his commission. This leaves the greater, and, in case of cost per mille, the full risk and loss (if the visitor cannot be converted) to the advertiser.
Hi Scott, thanks for you reply. When I create an account I get a message saying “oops, it seems we already have an account with info provided, please login using that information using the member login area” and when I try to log in I get a message saying “unable to find user account with credentials provided” so I’m just going in a circle getting nowhere. Please help..
For starters they make no promises that what you will learn will be able to work on a regular site. The premise behind what they do is based on how blog-style sites work and generate traffic. Yes they do this in a completely different method. You can get traffic easier in a blog than with your web site. But since you "know what you are doing" already, you must have known that. 👍🏻 My Honest Wealthy Affiliate Review 👎🏻 - What is it all about? Full Video Review!

I have been a member for over a year and a half and it’s definitely legit.In the time I have been there I have been able to start a website (Which I had no idea how to do before) and turn it into a full time business.

Online affiliate marketing is wide open. You can write about or promote whatever you want! However, the incredible amount of possibilities can be overwhelming, and that leaves a lot of people saying that they don't have any good ideas. There are literally hundreds of comments below saying “I don't know which topic to pick”, or “I don't have any hobbies so what should I do?”.
Hey Frank! I happened to stumble on this review while reading your review of Kyani. I have already signed up to be a distributor with Kyani so was wondering if WA would be a good place for me to start that business up at? I am pretty new to all this and really need help with getting online sales if possible. I really don’t care to sell products to family and friends. Not that I don’t think the product is a good one, but my family and friends are not on the same wave I am currently on with getting healthy and leading/maintaining a healthier lifestyle. Hope this makes sense as I am typing this as fast as I can from 9-6 desk job! 🙂
Affiliates are most successful when the products they promote match the interests of their followers and subscribers. In addition, many successful affiliate marketers advise recommending and promoting only products that the affiliate is personally familiar with. That’s because familiarity with the product, program, or service helps build trust between the affiliate and end-user.

Once you've protected your prospecting pool, maximize your affiliate program by working with the best and leaving the rest. As the old 80/20 adage implies, most of your revenue will come from a very small percentage of your affiliates. Because it can be time-consuming to manage a larger affiliate network, consider selecting only a few companies initially, and interview them before signing them on. Affiliates are an extension of your sales force and represent your online brand, so choose partners carefully.

One last note. I’ve been asked what I think of other affiliate marketing resources, both free and paid. I’m familiar with some of them, not all. I’ve read ebooks, watch videos, bought courses and more. So far, the only paid-for course that has impressed me enough to recommend is Kayla Aimee’s Affiliate Acceleration: Impactful Strategies To Increase Your Passive Income.
I will admit that i have not read the entire website here on Wealthy Affiliate. But i read enough where I’m more then interested yet concerned its for someone who has a business idea of sorts and this is where you go to start that idea. Also, didn’t read all the comments so if this question has already been asked i do apologize. Just moved to a new home my husband and i bought to start our soon growing family. Hard to find good work and after the baby comes it will of course be even harder. I haven’t had a “desk” job in over 7 years+ but this seem to be right up my alley so to speak. Or at least something very similar that keeps me home where I’m going to be needed more then anything. Without allowing myself to write my life story (novel) i will leave it at this, – I’ve looked into many online jobs or the get rich quick crap and have come up empty handed. I’m not trying to get rich quick as good as that sounds to most people i simply have a very strong professional work ethic and coming out of the military less then a year i think its best after my son is born to work on my own instead of expecting so much out of the normalcy of civilians. Sorry this comment/question turned out to be as long as it did. Highly appreciate your time and consideration of my ramblings 🙂
You should also make sure you aren't competing with your own affiliates for eyeballs. Any marketing channels you're using, such as search engines, content sites or e-mail lists, should be off limits to your affiliates. Put marketing restrictions into your affiliate agreement and notify partners immediately. It's your program--you set the rules. Or, if you prefer, you can let your affiliates run the majority of your internet marketing.
You will be writing the articles yourself on your own website (Free or paid) by following along with the training and completing the daily tasks for each lesson. By the time you are finished with the first course you will have the foundation of your site up and should have all of your core pages written out and published. As far as articles and domain revisions I would advise you to continuously keep your website up to date and always make sure you have fresh new content coming out at all times.
I would love to help you with your blog. I am a copywriter and have been helping other people build their businesses by attaining Google traffic via their blogs. While WA can help you with that end of it, I can provide you with excellent content that will be of interest to those who are interested in purchasing your gift baskets and will generate repeat customers and grow your business by word of mouth. While my website isn’t active just yet, you can reply here or by email. Please feel free to contact me anytime when you are ready to begin blogging! I truly look forward to working with you.
Once you start going through the training and get some content on your site you will be presented with the opportunity to submit your website to the community and have as many members as you want to provide you with some valuable feedback. Updating the content on your site may seem difficult at first, but you’ll find that this will get easier the more you do it.
He didn't want me to write, but I just felt the need. So, here I am. No, I wasn't dumb enough to pay for it, but it seems that, unless you want to be a Wealthy Affiliate robot you are not welcome, and will be coaxed VERY tenderly into paying for it. In fact, I was told that the core of what I wanted to learn was in fact in the premium membership, lucky me! If I was some poor beginning I would've fallen, green money hard.
Though there are no phone number to call for support. I have always gotten a response from WA webhost support team within an hour. I think it is about preference when it comes to web hosting. Some might find WA host reliable while others would host their websites some where else. Wealthy Affiliate is more of an education program and community for me. Even if I do not host with WA, I will still continue to be a premium member because I see the value in it.
I openly disclose the fact that I will receive a small affiliate commission if someone decides to join WA Premium using one of my affiliate link. There is no compensation for starter members. I often tell people that they are free to join WA without using my link but I encourage them to do so if they liked my review and the effort I put into explaining what it is and what it does. If someone thinks I don’t deserve being compensated, they can join directly through WA main site, without using my links, no hard feelings. The goal here is to answer all the questions about WA.
My name is Brad and I'm a full-time affiliate marketer. I started trying to do affiliate marketing back towards the end of 2013 while I was working a full-time job in corporate America and living in St. Louis, Missouri. I struggled badly at first. It seemed hopeless because I wasn't making any progress. But I stuck with it for better or worse and joined Wealthy Affiliate in 2014.
You don’t necessarily have to have a huge site or lots of traffic. Consider emailing an affiliate program’s contact person (look for contact info on the site or in affiliate newsletters) if you send a lot of leads their way, rank well in the search engines for a related keyword or have a high conversion rate. Make your email compelling. Read my tips here. You just have to be a good fit and provide excellent value to the merchant. Another good resource for this is here.
I have several blogs promoting all different products. The hardest thing I find about affiliate marketing is that once you’ve sold someone something you need to find a new product to sell them. I’ve found that promoting a subscription service where you sign up a customer is a great way to go. This way every time they renew or buy something you get paid. You only have to sell them this once.
I am a new member to WA and was just checking out some sites that might be an affiliate of WA. Very nicely done and informative. Look forward to chatting and sharing ideas as time goes on. I have researched and bought numerous training systems and found nothing as good as WA. It will be nice helping other people to find the training their looking for to develop an online business, as the economy is somewhat challenging.
I’m sorry to hear that you are having trouble signing up for WA. This usually happens when a family member or someone from the same IP address tries to sign up for an account and this won’t work. I would suggest that you either try and sign up from another computer or IP address. This is all tracked by your IP address and the reason they have it setup this way is so that people can’t game the system by signing up for multiple accounts. If you continue to have problems I would send Kyle an email and let him know what issues you are having and he will get you setup. He is the co-owner of WA and his email is Kyle@wealthyaffiliate.com If you have anymore questions or need help with anything else please let me know.
There is no use of having the best content on the planet if people don’t visit your affiliate website. You need to drive traffic to your affiliate website if you need to make commissions by recommending products. Give away free content on your website, offer a free consultation, add subscribers to your newsletter, and produce videos that offer a lot of value to visitors to encourage people to visit your website.

A: You should be skeptical when offered something of great value for $0. So what’s the catch when it comes to Wealthy Affiliate? The free membership gives you access to a small part of WA. In order to get more advanced training you’ll have to upgrade to premium membership. That’s the catch. However, I recommend starting with a FREE membership so you could get a feel of this platform and decide if you should upgrade. Free membership is enough to actually start an online business.
I’m signing up!!! I swore I would find a solution and I’ve been hunting and trying all sorts of programs that did not work out for me or were scams, and I’ve spent the past two years….two YEARS…trying to figure this out because it’s a matter of survival for me and so I’m not ready to give up all that energy and time spent…there has to be something out there that is the right fit for me. I’ve lost many friends and family connections due to this journey so I’m gonna give this a shot and prove to everyone and myself that there is a way!
They are a very clever marketing company, and are everything they say they're not. Beware, and please read. They are smarter than most, which is why they have so many followers. They claim to have the key to training a person on how to successfully create their own lucrative work-from-home blog sites. They do claim to be a lot of work, require a lot of patience, blah blah swoon. You almost had me.
You will also have instant access to help from me along with the help of the entire community if you ever have any questions or need some help along the way. I would sign up for your FREE account by clicking on the join now button above. Within 60 minutes of you joining I will be getting a hold of you to answer any questions you may have and welcome you to the community.
If you’re on the same IP address as someone that has an account then this could be the reason why you’re getting this error msg. If this isn’t the case then I would send Kyle (Co-Owner Of WA) an email notifying him of this issue at Kyle@Wealthyaffiliate.com I will also send him an email and he will look into it and set you up with your own account.
Affilorama – While I promoted Affilorama in the past, I no longer do for many reasons. It has simply become too outdated. Affilorama also lacks in some of the training. Instead, they focus on helping you get started quickly by designing a site for you and seeding it with content. Some of the optional training courses they sell are quite expensive and compares to an entire annual membership at Wealthy Affiliate, so that’s why I no longer promote them. Again, they are worth checking out, but I think Wealthy Affiliate is a much better buy.
What do you do when you need help with something? I normally go to google search to look for the answer. Kyle and Carson the owners at Wealthy Affiliate understand the concept of support and help and in order to create a good online business you will need support and the community here will give you just that as toy can ask for help via a blog on the forum’s or on instant chat hence the 24/7 community support within the platform. There are various types of support:
I wouldn’t advise you to build a website about a celebrity as this could possibly result in some legal issues. I’m not sure how you would earn any money by simply writing about celebrity news and posting pics of them. The whole idea here lola is to build a website based on something you’re passionate about or a hobby of yours. What kind of things are you interested in and what could you see yourself writing about for the next couple of years without getting bored with it?
If you only have an hour a day to work on this I think that would be a good starting point for you, but I can’t guarantee how much money you would make. It’s impossible to put an actual number on how much you could make by only spending an hour a day on this. This is totally up to you lola and it depends on how hard you work and what you do in that hour that will determine how much money you make.
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.
Highly competitive: If you can’t generate traffic, you don’t make any sales. This is the biggest challenge. When everyone can sign up for these affiliate offers for free (very low barrier for entry), now you have a situation where there is a boatload of competition for most affiliate opportunity out there. Unless you use paid traffic, most people get traffic from building a website and ranking it in Google, which is what Wealthy Affiliate teaches, but the problem is there’s only 10 spots on the first page of Google. & you have to compete for those spots with thousands of affiliates around the world.
£0?! When you join as a starter as I did you will be granted instant access to the whole community including live chat, 500 training modules, 3 classrooms, networking and 2 free websites plus free searches on the keyword tool. Wealthy affiliate encourages you to stat for free as they would rather you see for yourself before you invest any money. I have to repeat myself here but I can think of no other site offering this service of a free starter membership to access to the whole website!
