Thank you for the reply. I’d like as many members on WA to review as many of my articles as possible, specially when starting out. As technology and contents are changing constantly faster than ever, how difficult would you say is the update of new and fresh contents on the sites are? Can I get 1 on 1 help from as many members in WA as I could reach as premium member? Out of curiosity, how many hours a week would you recommend doing WA to be some income(Say maybe $1000/per month?), within 3 to 6 months? Also, what niches do you write about, if you don’t mind me asking?
There are many, many ways that you can learn how to make money using the training at Wealthy Affiliate. But first you need to ask yourself what are you passionate about or what are some of your hobbies? To answer your question without going into lots of details, WA will teach you how to take your hobbies or passions and turn them into an online business.
i have looked at and tried similar systems and programs in the past, all without success. The web is full of false promises and scams, that it is difficult to trust any. Most follow the same design and claim ‘this and that’ but end up with tools like article spinners that dont work and clickbank banners that have no effect. What makes this system any different?
The way the training is structured is great for learning. Many courses just throw videos at you without any structure. Seriously. I've taken a course where all the members complained about how disorganized it was. The founders said it was purposefully disorganized to teach you how to dig and search for things like an entrepreneur. I couldn't make up something so crazy!
To learn from affiliate marketing, the first rule is to be patient. Without this virtue, it is going to be difficult to stay the path till you start seeing profits, as the learning curve can be quite steep in the initial days. However, make sure you have chosen the right product, built the correct website for such a product, and have a good lead generation strategy, and these things will propel you towards success.
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.
It doesn’t matter if you are a complete newbie to online marketing or if you an advanced marketer. Wealthy Affiliate caters to a variety of different categories of people. I’m so glad that you have made the decision to become a member of this awesome community by opening your free account. Let me know how things are going for you Mozie and if I can help you out in any way.
Wealthy Affiliate has 2 levels of membership: Free and Premium. It’s explained in the review. You should join as a free member so you could see what’s inside and decide if you like it. You can remain a free member for as long as you want, however you won’t get access to all levels of training and private support will only be available for 1 week. However, you can build 2 sites and work on them for as long as you want, for free.
Don’t exhaust all the information about the product with your link. Offer enough information to your readers so they know what the link is, but I don’t recommend giving too much detail on your own site for a two reasons. First, product information, like price, often changes. If you mention the price on your site and someone clicks over and finds a different price, it’s confusing. Second, many times, the product details and features are better explained by the makers of the product. It’s best to stick to your own experience on your site.
If you join Wealthy Affiliate through my affiliate link (50% off first month), I'm going to post on your wall after I get a notification that you joined. After you see my post on your wall, you can direct message me anytime to get personalized advice. I am grateful that you took the time to read my Wealthy Affiliate review and might use my link, so the least I could do is personally see to it that you succeed.
Be honest. Talk about what you like and don’t like. Be fair and build trust. It will serve you well later. For examples, check out my review posts about Elite Blog Academy and Self Publishing 101. I get emails frequently from people who tell me they decided to purchase one of those courses through my affiliate link because it was the most balanced review they found.

I would love to teach you everything I know about how to get started in affiliate marketing and how to grow your business a little more every day. I would suggest you get started by opening your FREE account by clicking on the join now button above. I will be contacting you shortly after you join to make sure you are finding your way around the community and answer any questions you may have when you are getting started.
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.
I’m a student and a complete newbie to this online business. Don’t have the slightest idea how to put together a website or blog or write content, let a alone drive traffic to them to earn money, sounds like a mountain to climb. Nonetheless I am an internet addict(could spend close to 10hrs online daily). Really desire to be a super affiliate marketer and make money online, can WA hold me by the hand and take me through to my destination with my zero experience?
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.
Can you make money with affiliate marketing? The short answer is yes, affiliate programs can earn a extra money and even a full-time income from home. The long answer is a little more complicated. Like any home income venture, success comes not so much from what you choose to do to make money, but whether or not you do what needs to be done correctly and consistently.
As far as writing content I would suggest that you follow the training and ask questions when you have them in the comment thread below each lesson. You would simply need to do some in-depth research on these other companies just like you did for WA. After you have compiled this information simply put it in your own words and write it in a way that it speaks to your audience.
The entire reason I created this site is because as an affiliate marketer, I started getting upset with the lack of ethics and misinformation being spread from MANY affiliate marketers, especially as it pertains to the “make money online” niche. So many online marketers out there promise you quick easy money if you just sign up and pay for this or that. Quite frankly, I’m sick of it. Growing an affiliate marketing business is just like starting any other business – it takes time, effort, and a lot of trial and error. I won’t get into it here, but if you’d like you can read my honest article about how long it takes to earn a full-time living with affiliate marketing.
Hi Taylor, If you are not a good sales person or you don’t like cold calling then you definitely wouldn’t fit in with Ameriplan. I joined them thinking I would make good money with them before asking what it is that I would be doing. This was a bad move and I regret it. Congratulations on your newborn baby! I can totally understand you wanting to work from home for many reasons. When you join Wealthy Affiliate for Free you will get 2 free websites that you can use to promote anything you want.
Summary: While other programs charges hundreds or thousands of dollars to teach Affiliate Marketing, you can get access to everything there is in Wealthy Affiliate for a fraction of the fee, plus you'll enjoy so many other valuable features without ever needing to pay for upsells. This is what I like about Wealthy Affiliate because it genuinely wants you to succeed as an affiliate marketer.

One of the main reasons why most newbie affiliate marketers give up after 3 months is the fact that they can’t build up traffic to their affiliate website. It’s a thorn in most marketers’ sides, but one that can be easily resolved if you put the effort in. Below I have covered a few areas that will get you good targeted traffic to your affiliate deals.


Your second question. Yes, there are people who created websites in a niche they have no interest in and they ended up making money. This does happen although very rarely. I always recommend working with a hobby or a passion simply because this will make everything easier and much more fun. Can you really keep creating content on a subject you’re not interested in? Probably not. You can however hire writers who will do it for you but that’s a different story.

What are some of your interests Scott and what are you passionate about? This is what your website is going to be based on and this needs to be narrowed down to a specific group of people. There are over 2 billion people online every day with this number constantly on the rise. The only thing you need to do is connect with these people and provide them with the information they’re looking for.
To answer your question about what are you getting paid for. You are starting up your own online business and learning how to build a website from scratch. There are thousands of people everyday that are looking for reviews of different products (just like you did for Ameriplan) They usually like to read a review of something before they buy it. This is where you could come in with your website about a passion or hobby of yours. There are affiliate programs for just about anything that is sold online.
When I first stumbled upon Wealthy Affiliate in 2007 I had to pay the full price just so I could see what it looks like and what it really is. This program has changed a lot in the past 11 years and you can try it out completely Free. The starter account is $0, no catch, no credit card required – so you could decide if it’s right for you without risking a single dime of your hard earned money.
Wow–this was extremely thorough. Thank you so much for taking the time to explain everything. I learned quite a bit!! It’s awesome that you have been with WA 6 years–that is quite the testimony and you clearly understand all of the ins and out and really love the program. You were very detailed and explanatory in this post and it was very appreciated. I now feel like I really understand what WA is all about. Thanks so much!

I promote the local marketing thing that changed my life, but I’ve actually built a multiple 6 figure business with it already (still building that biz to this day, with 4 full-time employees working for me) and no one in this coaching group is allowed to promote it like I am. I am just one of the few that is since I am literally one of the original success students (effectively killed my job in 2015 & became a full-time internet entrepreneur).
A: Wealthy Affiliate teaches you how to build on online business. You can certainly learn how to create and sell your own product. However, WA will also teach you how to make money by simply promoting other people’s products! You can work with such giants as Amazon, Walmart, Apple and many others and earn commissions on products these companies already sell. How cool is that?
Don’t take this statement as a rule but if you do go through WA training and build your business the way WA teaches you I don’t see why you can’t make $50,000+ in your first year. Most beginner internet marketers fail online because they do not follow a plan of action, get distracted by new shiny products that promise millions overnight and because they do not take enough action. Wealthy Affiliate will help you with all of it: Provide you with a realistic plan of action, courses that you need to follow and tasks you need to complete. Stay focused and you will be successful. Need more motivation? Check out some of my earning:
Hi Candice, There are many different forms of payment that WA will accept. These include PayPal, Electronic checks (It takes 3-5 business days for these to clear) Credit and Debit cards including Visa or MasterCard. You could also have it setup to be automatically withdrawn from your bank account as well. I look forward to working with you here soon and if you have any further questions let me know and I would be glad to answer them for you.
Cost per mille requires only that the publisher make the advertising available on his or her website and display it to the page visitors in order to receive a commission. Pay per click requires one additional step in the conversion process to generate revenue for the publisher: A visitor must not only be made aware of the advertisement but must also click on the advertisement to visit the advertiser's website.
Some merchants run their own (in-house) affiliate programs using dedicated software, while others use third-party intermediaries to track traffic or sales that are referred from affiliates. There are two different types of affiliate management methods used by merchants: standalone software or hosted services, typically called affiliate networks. Payouts to affiliates or publishers can be made by the networks on behalf of the merchant, by the network, consolidated across all merchants where the publisher has a relationship with and earned commissions or directly by the merchant itself.

Concerning WA, free membership is not allowed in my country, and as a member of WA for quit a long time now you should be a able to to tell us the reason(S) why some countries are not eligible for free membership, or is there a communication gap between the WA founder and the members? Because that should have been a very good ground for some newbies like me to start with.
Anyone can succeed in this business, no matter what your age is or if you are tech savvy or not. When I started here close to 3 years ago I had absolutely no idea how to build websites and I had never even heard of Internet marketing before. I just knew I was sick of living paycheck to paycheck and never being fulfilled in what I was doing for a living.

Here is my question: “What do you know about ‘Jim Cockrum’s Coaching Course?’ I was debating, if it does not cost me “an arm and a leg” to join the course but then I start reading a few negative reports/reviews on “Ripoff Report” (old ones ) which made me slightly uneasy! Also, I noticed that apparently Jim and/or the “Coaching Office” is located in Utah! This makes me kind of uneasy also, because many Internet operators, companies , etc., are located in Utah! I happened to deal with a few of them and they all left me with a bad taste in my mouth and/or ‘burned’, so to speak!.
I’m really glad you are enjoying the reviews! I can totally relate to how you must feel about devoting months of your time to a business that you aren’t 100% sure if you will ever start making any money from. Believe me I was very skeptical about joining and wondering if I was wasting my time by building a website that nobody would visit or buy anything from me. Now that I look back, I am glad that I stuck with it because it is definitely paying off now.
Many affiliate programs run with last-click attribution, where the affiliate receiving the last click before the sale gets 100% credit for the conversion. This is changing. With affiliate platforms providing new attribution models and reporting features, you are able to see a full-funnel, cross-channel view of how individual marketing tactics are working together. For example, you might see that a paid social campaign generated the first click, Affiliate X got click 2, and Affiliate Y got the last click. With this full picture, you can structure your affiliate commissions so that Affiliate X gets a percentage of the credit for the sale, even though they didn’t get the last click. 
You can take this passion and turn it into a full time business and that’s what you are going to be learning at Wealthy Affiliate. You get the products from whoever you decide to be an affiliate for. This could be Amazon, Best Buy, Target, Walmart, Gamestop, etc… When you sign up for their affiliate program, you are going to gain direct access to all of the products that they offer. WA provides you with training on how to market these products and how to be successful doing so. Once you get started going through the training all of this will start to make more sense to you and I will be there to answer any questions you have getting started.
That being said, you are free to move your website to a new host. You still own all that material! Most hosts do not provide affiliate training though, so you’ll need to browse blogs and websites to get the necessary information on how to build your website. My blog has hundreds of pages solely dedicated to teaching you how to build a business online.
Hey Matthew, there are many scams out there that promise you the world but have little to nothing to offer you. I’m glad that you have decided to get started with the starter membership at Wealthy Affiliate and I look forward to working with you man on building your own online business. If you need my help or have any questions feel free to leave me a message and I would be glad to help you out.
Once you decide to go premium you won’t be able to go back to the free starter membership. The starter membership is there to get you started and you aren’t able to revert back to it, but if you decide that the premium membership isn’t for you then you can cancel your membership at any time. To do this, simply go into your account settings and scroll to the bottom of the page and click stop billing and close my account.

Despite its older origins, email lists are still a viable source of affiliate marketing income. Some affiliates have email lists they can use to promote the seller’s products. Others may leverage email newsletters that include hyperlinks to products, earning a commission after the consumer purchases the product. Another method is for the affiliate to cultivate email lists over time. They use their various campaigns to collect emails en masse, then send out emails regarding the products they are promoting.

I am thinking about joining but I am not sure what I am getting into. I would like to have an online business just what you state but I dont have any products to sell. You help set up a website but what would it include in the website. Will I be able to join for affiliate business programs that i can sell for the other business companies? I know you have tutorials but It sure will be confusing to me and can be frustrating. Will there be a do it for you for this business that i can lead what I want to promote or sell?


Upselling is a sales technique where the salesperson encourages a more expensive purchase by a customer by persuading them to get an upgraded version of an item or to purchase add-ons. Remember our food processor example? That food processor could probably be best used with a book of recipes, which also can be purchased at the same company’s website.
You are provided with 2 free websites to get you started and these are a sub domain and have the siterubix extension at the end of them (For example howtomakemoneyonline.siterubix.com) With the premium membership you get 25 of these sub domains as well as the ability to host 25 domains that you own on WA’s state of the art secure and high speed hosting that’s included with your premium membership.
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.
In November 1994, CDNow launched its BuyWeb program. CDNow had the idea that music-oriented websites could review or list albums on their pages that their visitors might be interested in purchasing. These websites could also offer a link that would take visitors directly to CDNow to purchase the albums. The idea for remote purchasing originally arose from conversations with music label Geffen Records in the fall of 1994. The management at Geffen wanted to sell its artists' CD's directly from its website but did not want to implement this capability itself. Geffen asked CDNow if it could design a program where CDNow would handle the order fulfillment. Geffen realized that CDNow could link directly from the artist on its website to Geffen's website, bypassing the CDNow home page and going directly to an artist's music page.[9] Wealthy Affiliate The Truth.
