First of all, GREAT review, in fact the best I’ve read so far in my opinion. Not only was it informative, but it was personal to you and how it really has changed your life. I am in the similar situation you started out in. I’m almost 27, lol, not exactly living with my parents just yet, but if I don’t make next months’ rent then I will have to move back with them, and it’s not that bad, but I just prefer living on my own. I’ve done lots of research, read lots of reviews, and have even started with WA. I was just building my website when I noticed that some of the better platforms for the better websites were Premium, hence the research. I am now going to upgrade to Premium, as your review has officially confirmed the greatness of this company. Just thinking about how the possibilities are literally endless gives me a LOT of hope for my future. I have a lot of social anxiety and it’s hard for me to get a real job. I googled “how to make money today” and a site came up that recommended another site, then from that site I found WA, and now I am SUPER excited!!!!! I don’t know anything about marketing either, so I’m actually amazed how they teach you step by step how to do everything to make you successful!!! It’s such a great learning experience as well. You not only learn more about your niche, but you can learn about other niches and you learn how to be successful as well.
This is actually the perfect schedule for you to work on this. If you can work on this 4 days a week you will be getting the foundation of your business in place and making some really nice progress along the way. I think this is going to work out really nicely for you Sameer if you are willing to work hard and follow simple step by step directions.
I saw where you signed up and that’s great man. Your next steps should be to get started on your first training lesson. I have provided you with the link to this in my welcome message that has been posted on your profile. There is also a big green button on your left when you are on the WA website that says “GET STARTED HERE”. If you need any help going through the lessons please let me know and I will walk you through them and explain anything to you that you don’t understand.
I’m starting out with my WA site and jouny right now. And I’m going to use alot of clickbank products! Was it hard and slow at first to start? You really inspired me to hit this hard! I know it wont be over night. Its it will take a lot of hard work. But I’m ok with that. Just want to get an idea of the speed of your progress was. Not at all going to base mine off yours. I know it will be differant for everyone. Again thank you for the insiration and feed back! Also i’m going to start another site but after I get this one going LoL. Really want to work for myself. Thank again 🙂 Zach
Most members I know do not promote Wealthy Affiliate. In fact some of the most successful members at WA build niche websites promoting products from Amazon and other affiliate networks. Personally I only started promoting WA once I was able to earn $7k – $8k with my niche sites that I built and grew because of WA’s training. Sure, some people jump into promoting WA right away but that wouldn’t me my first suggestion. Go to any platform, free or paid where affiliate marketers are making money – most will never show you their website.

Hey Penny, I am glad I was able to steer you away from Ameriplan and towards a real online business opportunity. The WA Affiliate Bootcamp is only a 1 tier program where as MLM programs are multi tier. This is what separates WA from MLM programs out there. There are many many, different ways to make money online the bootcamp is only one of them and WA teaches you how to do it all. I would suggest starting out with the free starter membership and see what you think of it. I would then at least sample the premium membership because it is significantly discounted 59% off on your first month. This is totally up to you though Penny whenever you are ready. Once you join I will be there to guide you down the right path and show you how to make money online from the thousands of different products and services out there. I look forward to working with you and I will talk to you soon.

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?
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’ve been reading your reviews on WA for awhile today and am extremely pleased to have found you! This post brings up a question: if I am an affiliate for a writer’s group I belong to, I receive discounts on all of their training products. Can you explain how would I receive monetary compensation for being an affiliate (or as a distributor for health care products, for example, and an essential oil company that I also belong to) and by driving traffic to their websites? Also, if I have multiple websites do I then need to maintain blogs for each one to maximize Google traffic or can they in anyway be linked to streamline this process?
Great article, Zach. The one question I have is about hyperlinking the brand name with your affiliate link. Isn’t it a little annoying for the reader if the brand name is hyperlinked throughout the article? It may even seem obvious to the reader that the blog is promoting an affiliate product. In an article with 1000+ words, a brand name may be mentioned at least 10-15 times. Do you suggest hyperlinking the brand every time?
If you need some help building your first website and your communication priveledges have expired at WA I would be more than happy to help you get your first website up and running. I know how hard it is just starting out because I was in your shoes a couple of years ago. Feel free to send me an email at Scott@aworkathomebusinesses.com and I would be more than happy to help you out Carrl.
Since the emergence of affiliate marketing, there has been little control over affiliate activity. Unscrupulous affiliates have used spam, false advertising, forced clicks (to get tracking cookies set on users' computers), adware, and other methods to drive traffic to their sponsors. Although many affiliate programs have terms of service that contain rules against spam, this marketing method has historically proven to attract abuse from spammers.
When you join as a premium member you are going to get access to the level 2 training and up, along with access to every Boot camp phase that has been released so far. (There are 6 Phases so far) You will also get the ability to host all your websites at Wealthy Affiliate for no extra charge. You will also be able to send PMs to any of the other members including Kyle and Carson their-self and get personal one on one help.

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.


Let’s say you have a promotions page where you’re promoting a product via affiliate links. If you currently get 5,000 visits/month at a 2% conversion rate, you have 100 referrals. To get to 200 referrals, you can either focus on getting 5,000 more visitors, or simply increasing the conversion rate to 4%. Which sounds easier? Instead of spending months on blogging, SEO, and social media marketing to get more traffic, you just have to increase the conversion rate by 2%. This can include landing page optimization, testing your calls-to-action, and having a conversion rate optimization strategy in place. By testing and optimizing your site, you’ll get far better results with much less effort. 


I guess what my question is.? Besides the monthly membership payment what else is involved as far as paying out of pocket to become an affiliate online marketer.? What about Fee’s to post on social media sites? Fee for a domain name? Besides 47.00 a month am I looking at around 200 or 500 or a $1000.00 to get up and running after I finish the training and videos? I’m pretty gunho about wanting to do a start up business online. I’m always doing something online figured why not try to supplement my income and have my laptop and Kindle fire and iPhone work for me… If it’s possible can you give me some clarification on total investment before I go ahead and do this. And thank you for your honesty.. I know nothing is guarantee ‘d but I have the drive to try and make a dime or two…. Have a Great day…

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.


Wealthy Affiliate has all the tools, training, and help and support that you need to build your very own online empire. It’s going to take you a whole lot longer then 2 months to do it in Daniel. I really do wish you would reconsider but that’s totally up to you man. Affiliate marketing isn’t for everyone. Especially if you aren’t willing to give it time and work hard at it everyday, then it’s not going to work.


Hello! So this may have already been answered/asked and I missed it. If so, sorry! Do you have to purchase the products you are selling before the demand is there? For example, I start my website and all for sports gear. I have no product or customers yet. In order to get started, I have to buy 200+ items of sportswear to stock and supply my web business and then try to sell those items.
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!
Hi Scott, I just posted this question, maybe you can input some feedback as well, I would appreciate it…thanks! Hi, Maybe I missed something….the print is so small I couldn’t read the content…Just finished going through lesson ten and my question is: how will money be generated off this website? are there any links to redirect people to buy a specific ‘How To Reduce Belly Fat’ product or is it that just by accessing the website you get paid or how does it work? Please explain…Thank you!!:
Of course you can say, well just compete. That’s the essence or free enterprise. But then, realistically, what are the chances of still succeeding in this WA promotion niche? There are already a lot of veterans way, way ahead — like YOU. For a newbie appreciating how excellently you have developed your promotion site, it looks like a very tall order to come up with something better and competitive. And mind you, you are not the only excellent site around promoting WA.

I would not recommend this company at all. Wealthy affiliate charge a fortune for their training modules/products. I have been bombarded with emails that are basically spam about 5 times a day since I created an account. I just cannot get Kyle and the other team members to stop sending me emails. After signing for an account I decided to go for a cheaper course with DS dropshipper.


It’s actually $47 and as I have said below in my other comment. You can get your first month for only $19 and get complete access to the premium membership at this discounted price. The reason why there is a recurring fee is because each and every month you are going to be getting new training and updated courses about how to start a business online. This is a subscription website and you are going to be trained on how to make money online. It is also an online college and you are paying for an education but at a much discounted price.
There are a few different payment options that Wealthy Affiliate will accept. These include Paypal as being the safest and most popular one. If you don’t have a Paypal account you can sign up for one for free by going to Paypal.com. Besides taking regular Visa or Master cards you could also do an e-check from your bank and pay for your WA subscription that way. How Long Does It Take To Make Money With Wealthy Affiliate
