A: Wealthy Affiliate Premium is available to everyone and in every country. However, Wealthy Affiliate Free Membership is not available to 7 countries at the moment: Bangladesh, Egypt, India, Nigeria, Pakistan, Philippines, Vietnam. I do not own Wealthy Affiliate and I don’t know why this decision was made so I can’t offer any other details or support on this subject. If you live in one of these seven countries you can still join the premium membership of WA at any time at a regular price of $49 per month.

You can gain access to your first month at an unbelievable $19! This is entirely up to you though May and you can remain a free member for as long as you like. Personally, for me it took me around 3 and a half months before I made my first sale. My income has skyrocked since then and I have been making a full time income online for over 2 and a half years now.

Hello I came across your web site while i was doing some research. I did read the whole thing. All i have to say is you really nailed it. I have been with wealthy affiliate since Sept 2017 and love it. This place is 100% honest. Not like the scamers that promise big bucks and then leave. And with the changes that Kyle and Carson have showed us that are coming it makes all the better.
I'm thinking about building a new site and partnering with someone. We would split the commission 50/50 and we would have to talk and see how to split up the work based on our skill sets. I would own the domain and you would open the affiliate accounts and receive the payment. After the payment is issued, you send me my half. Or we could have a joint PayPal account and divvy up the payments from there (I do this now with a friend and it works well). And of course, I would give preference to premium Wealthy Affiliate members when picking a partner because I know they know their stuff.
Many voucher code web sites use a click-to-reveal format, which requires the web site user to click to reveal the voucher code. The action of clicking places the cookie on the website visitor's computer. In the United Kingdom, the IAB Affiliate Council under chair Matt Bailey announced regulations[41] that stated that "Affiliates must not use a mechanism whereby users are encouraged to click to interact with content where it is unclear or confusing what the outcome will be."
The community aspect is also something that I really love and something other programs fail to provide. If you have difficulty with anything in the process, many members will able to help you instantly in WA Live Chat but what I love most is that people share their ideas and experiences. Listen to these experiences, learn from other people’s mistakes and brainstorm with others!
If you actually use the product and get results with it, then sharing a case study or your personal experience can be one of the most effective ways of selling those products to your audience. As you build a more responsive list of email subscribers and buyers and your reputation, merchants may offer you “free” samples of e-books or other products.
A: No, You don’t! Wealthy Affiliate does provide an amazing affiliate program but you aren’t obliged to promote it to make money. Unlike MLMs and other “business opportunities” WA will never force you to annoy your friends and family by trying to push them into your “downline”. WA is mostly about teaching you how to set-up a real online business where you could sell any service or product that you can find in stores or online.
A quick and inexpensive method of making money without the hassle of actually selling a product, affiliate marketing has an undeniable draw for those looking to increase their income online. But how does an affiliate get paid after linking the seller to the consumer? The answer is complicated. The consumer doesn’t always need to buy the product for the affiliate to get a kickback. Depending on the program, the affiliate’s contribution to the seller’s sales will be measured differently. The affiliate may get paid in various ways:

In your description area I would use this space to tell us a little about you and tell everyone what you would like to achieve at Wealthy Affiliate. I will be contacting you within your first hour of joining to make sure you are finding everything OK and to welcome you to the community. I really am looking forward to working with you Christyann and helping you build an online empire.
You can join these affiliate programs for free and they give you something called an affiliate link when you join. At the bottom of your review or article you insert your affiliate link and tell them they can buy the product by clicking on that link. If they buy the product through your link you make a commission on that sale. These can add up pretty fast after you get the hang of it.
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.
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.
Hi Jack! Just wondering if you can advise abit about the process about the course. While I understand there is alot of online process, technique and marketing that goes into an online business, my biggest issue is I just have no clue on what to run! I don’tk now my niche? I love investing – shares, equities, everything, but I am by far not a guru that I can setup a coaching style online business like those ‘rich dudes’ you see selling training courses online whiel worknig on their laptop in bali.
If you get started with the training it will walk you through each lesson and give you a few tasks to complete for each one. Depending on how hard you work at this it is possible to reach $1000 in 6 months time. The thing about this business is you will get out of it what you put into it. If you work really hard at this and learn all you can about building your online business you will be very successful.

And finally, I find that it is almost too easy to communicate with people! I love helping people and meeting new people in the industry, but as a successful affiliate marketer, I do get bombarded with so many questions from people I don’t even know. For that reason, I try to keep my responses prioritised by always responding to those who I referred through my affiliate link. Heck, they helped me earn a few bucks, so why shouldn’t they get priority? While this system works, I do sometimes feel bad at my super late response times for many of those trying to get some help.
I repeatedly asked, in the general forum, for help on finding out how to do what I was led there to do. I had NO interest in creating a Wordpress blog page that would promote Wealthy Affiliates. And yet, this was all they seemed to cover. I kept asking questions and received several responses to just go through the training. For what? To buy into the gimmick? Tell me EXACTLY which training of the 10 to go to so that I don't waste my time. After all, you're selling yourself to me for me to buy into your membership at some point.
Hey Scott, I’ve been burned before. I’ve paid out hundreds of dollars to try and get affiliate marketing sites going and have never succeeded. My circle of friends is extremely suspicious about any site that claims you can make money online and I don’t socialize locally to spread out business cards. Promotion on facebook is also not a possibility as I’ve boycotted that site for personal reasons. I don’t like wandering into new forums, spending weeks building reputation, and then promoting a site only to find that they already have all their bases covered or something else. I also don’t have the energy to sit through hundreds of hours of video tutorials that I may not even understand, nor any money to set up websites. How is this going to work beyond a project I work on for 7 days and then give up on?
If you add up all the services you get, the premium membership is a steal. For example, you’ll notice they include unlimited keyword research with a membership. Other paid keyword research tools sell for $49 or more just by themselves. Add in website hosting, and there’s another $10 / mo. Add on the website security package, and there’s another $10 per month (I’ve paid as much as $29 / mo just for website security). Just based on those things alone, Wealthy Affiliate is a great deal with all of the resources and tools you need in one convenient place. Not to mention all of the training, tutorials, and support that is included with the membership.
In the BigCommerce affiliate program, you receive a 200% bounty per referral and $1,500 per Enterprise referral, with no cap on commissions. Plus, the more referrals you drive through the program, the higher your commission tier will go. BigCommerce uses an industry leading 90-day cookie, so you will receive credit for up to three months for the referrals you generate. Also, there are no obligations or minimum commitments to join the program.

A sound product strategy is a must for new affiliate marketers. Ideally, you should choose a niche that you can make money online with and has a lot of product vendors. This will give you a wide selection of products to offer your online community. However, limit yourself to two or three products at a time, so that you become the expert others turn to and trust when reaching for their wallet.


Hi Jack, firstly, congratulations on your success. I’ve been trying to start an online business since 2014. I searched the net back then and came across WA and I think I joined the free start, but not knowing what I was doing, and with little patience, I soon moved away from that. I do remember you Jack back then when you started… The past couple of weeks, I’ve been receiving emails from SFM and was about to join up this morning. I was doing a little more research and came upon this your review. Thank you Jack, as I’m not in financial position to invest in SFM and as I’m still a novice today I choose to take up the free training with WA as I would like to position myself for retirement in eight years to have a successful online business. See you on the inside Jack and bless you for your honesty and sharing.
If you decide to upgrade, you’ll be able to move your freebie domain to a full .com domain name. That domain name will cost $14/year, which is standard pricing for domains. All the content will be moved over to that domain. Hosting is included for free in your WA membership. If you decide to leave WA, you can move all your stuff to a new host whenever you want.
You see what I’m getting at? If you break these niches down like I’ve done for you above and gradually start to build your site out you can branch out into other target markets in the tattoo niche. If you haven’t already, I would sign up for your free starter account by clicking on the “Become A Member” button above in blue. This way you’ll be able to get a feel for what you’ll be doing and get to check out everything that WA has to offer you without spending any of your hard earned money.
These could be some super interesting articles that someone could benefit from reading from! When someone types “home roasting coffee machines”, “how to roast green coffee”, or “can you roast coffee in a popcorn machine”, my website could turn up! I'll start out with these three articles, but quickly expand to more and more topics as I do more research.

I am a student. I have a goal of making about $100,000-$200,000(+)/year within the next 2/3 years with multiple income streams. I already am with an marketing company and they have given me 5/6 mini websites. But I want to have as much income streams as possible in other niches, along with the online business I have already. I have some idea about generating traffic to my mini websites, but I want to know how to convert the traffics into sales and leads. Do You think that’s possible if I join with wealthy affiliate? I am not really looking for money right now, just something that I can legitimately built up within 2/3 years of time. Also I noticed the WA premium membership allows upto 25 website domain or unlimited free websites; I am not sure. do I have to buy each of the domains if I sign up as a premium member? Also, in your opinion, how many articles minimum should an website on WA have to have good ranking? I am a total novice in article writing for business purposes and website building. Please let me know. Thanks!


The training will walk you through this same process and show you how to get on the first page of Google as well. I will be there to help you out and answer any questions you have about the training so don’t hesitate to let me know when you have any questions. I really am looking forward to working with you and I hope we can get you setup with your very own starter account.

You get 2 FREE fully functioning websites along with all the tools, training and personal 1 on 1 help and support directly from me and many other experienced internet marketers when you join. You can get started for free and give WA a test drive before you decide if this is something you can see yourself doing before investing any money into their program. I recommend that you get started by signing up for your free account here and setup your profile.
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.
Cost per click was more common in the early days of affiliate marketing but has diminished in use over time due to click fraud issues very similar to the click fraud issues modern search engines are facing today. Contextual advertising programs are not considered in the statistic pertaining to the diminished use of cost per click, as it is uncertain if contextual advertising can be considered affiliate marketing.

As a free trial member, if you wish to promote Wealthy Affiliate, you will get a commission that is 50% lesser than premium members. For example, free trial members earn $4 and premium members earn $8 on the first month subscription, $11.75/mth of commission for recurring payments for free trial members and $23.50/mth for premium members. I hope this clarifies.
I've seen people posting in the community just to get attention and validation from other members. Those kinds of antics belong on Facebook, not Wealthy Affiliate. Just be careful with what you're posting in the community. Post only when you can help someone or need help. If you find yourself posting to earn likes and street cred, it's time to refocus on building your dream lifestyle.
I usually get back to my referrals questions within 24 hours or less with a detailed response. When you sign up as a premium member under me this is one of the added bonuses that comes with your membership and I will be there to support you in any way I possibly can. I don’t want you to take my word for it though. I want you to experience this for yourself, Stephanie!
But there are problems with the domain specific email address. For some reason I can only receive emails. If I try to send or reply it gets caught in a perpetual loop and never gets sent. Technical support says it doesn’t see the problem. But their tests only use local servers which are not filtered thru a network. Will moving the domain to a different webhost fix this problem? I can’t be sure, but I need to look for a solution somewhere.
You do make an interesting point. However, whenever I start a new website I am basically starting from scratch. Posting links left right and center will not get you anywhere, it’s the hard work that counts. And to tell you the truth a lot of people do NOT want to do the hard work. This is why many give up rather fast which creates more opportunities for those who are willing to put in the effort.
My main gripe with OMG Machines, from an affiliate perspective, is that their affiliate training is limited at best. They definitely are great at teaching black hat SEO, but I found myself searching the internet for more information on affiliate marketing since the course doesn't cover much else. Wealthy Affiliate definitely covers the topic of affiliate marketing way better and is much more affordable. OMG Machines does not offer a money-back guarantee either. They say you need to commit and not have one foot out the door, so no refunds are allowed.
So a question I have, just because it didn’t jump into my eyes – does this Wealthy Affiliate Program also include knowledge about list-building? Because this is what i get so far – I should build a following by providing some kinda value to people that click on ads that I place on the internet.. I know – you can’t explain everything – but my question is – do you think I find “everything” here kinda “step-by-step”. Seen that you don’t call SFM a SCAM leaves me unsure, if I should go on a while – and just stay cirtical. What’s your opinion?
Yes, it costs money, but starting any business takes an investment. The key is to invest wisely, be frugal, and make sure you’re investing in the right things. With Wealthy Affiliate Premium you are literally getting absolutely everything you’ll need to start a successful business online. From the training to the web building tools to the website hosting, backup, security, and support – it’s all there in one place at a very reasonable price.
