You'll get the same from me. Private message me anytime you need help or just want some words of encouragement. I will coach you through, step-by-step. Affiliate marketing is my absolute passion! I want to help as many people as I can. I'm thinking about doing site reviews and critiques but that might be a heavy load. We'll see. You can get your site reviewed within the Wealthy Affiliate platform as well.
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.
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.
If you research any successful millionaire entrepreneur you will realize that they constantly learn new things. They attend seminars, hire coaches, read books, meet experts in their field – they stay updated and learn something new every single day. There hasn’t been a single time that I came to Wealthy Affiliate and haven’t learned something new – this is the reason I am still a member and still excited every time I log into my account.
I don't promote WA and the training pushed me in a direction to promote something else. The idea is that you can create a business online working withing a category that you have passion in.  For me that is woodworking, but for others this is likely soemthing completely different.  There are lots of directions you can head.  People that say that the training is all about promoting the same company obviously have not gone through the training.  I didn't get a sense of that.  
In February 2000, Amazon announced that it had been granted a patent[13] on components of an affiliate program. The patent application was submitted in June 1997, which predates most affiliate programs, but not PC Flowers & Gifts.com (October 1994), AutoWeb.com (October 1995), Kbkids.com/BrainPlay.com (January 1996), EPage (April 1996), and several others.[8]

I really like this article and I want to join but I have a question . If I don’t see value after the 7-days-free-trial , and I decide to leave what happens with my website ? Will it be closed ? You said we can keep the website but who pays for the hosting and domain ? Do I have to pay for the domain first even if I just want to try the 7-days-trial? I am sorry if the question is dumb , but I really want to get sure first , since there are so many affiliate programs with hidden expenses =(

Thanks for all the information I am slowly working my way through your list of do’s and donts! ! I’ve been approached by a website that wants to develop editorial content for my blog featuring home improvement tips from their”national client” and pay me $40 a year for reviewing and publishing their content. Boy, I am just not sure how this all works? Any words for when we are approached by others to write for our blogs?
This is the standard affiliate marketing structure. In this program, the merchant pays the affiliate a percentage of the sale price of the product after the consumer purchases the product as a result of the affiliate’s marketing strategies. In other words, the affiliate must actually get the investor to invest in the product before they are compensated.

You need to introduce the product to your potential customers first. You do this by writing helpful and in depth reviews on the products and tell people as much as you possibly can about the product (Kinda like pre-selling it) Then on your review pages, this is where you put your affiliate links and drive traffic to the vendors page. Yes, you do need a website.

You’ll have the chance to check out everything that WA has to offer before making the decision to invest in their advanced training courses.
Hi Jack, I’m thinking of joining WA but I don’t want to do anything but promote WA afffiliate website and how much will that cost me? How can I make money with that and what is the compensation plan just by doing the WA affiliate? I don’t want to find a niche and build my own website. I’m not a writer so I don’t want to do this kind of marketing where you write blogs and articles. Will I still be able to make money with WA with less to do?
I will still end up using other paid websites or services we need to create Promotions and promote our Products, But My REALY BIG QUESTION and I have searched everywhere For HOURS after HOURS, are you going to teach on how to generate Traffic and where to get it from, because everybody is talking about how you do it, find a product get traffic and get paid like it magically happens which I am curtain That the way most People explain it is just not true, so I am really hoping that your Program is actually teaching us all ins and outs, on how it works and how to do it and were to go,
Mistake #2: Using the “They must not be my people” excuse to be spammy. I’m not a fan of this common tactic. Here’s how it works: people send a huge number of sales/promotional emails to their list with no warning and with no easy way to opt out. When people complain or unsubscribe, they put it on them (“Oh well, they aren’t my type of subscriber anyway…”), instead of taking responsibility for the spam (let’s call it what it is). What ever happened to “treat others the way you want to be treated”?
Always make affiliate links nofollow. Google’s goal is to provide its users with the best possible search results to their search queries. One of the main ways they figure out which webpages are the best is through links. The Google bots crawl the web, reading text. When they come to a link, it’s like an open door. They follow the link (walk through the door) and explore the site you linked to.

Thanks for stopping by. As regards your question, unfortunately this is not a get rich quick scheme. It’s probable that you don’t see any earnings on your first months. You will need to invest time building your site from scratch: this means publishing good articles, creating a nice layout, etc. If you want to accelerate the process you can outsource your content and SEO but that will cost you more money.
I have a question for you! But let me give you a little background info first! Some years ago I had a company in Utah make me a website; in the long run I was not overly excited with it, to say the least, and I cancelled them and by doing so I lost somewhere between $500-$750! I started to search the internet about some info pertaining to this company, of course too late! During searching I came ‘somehow’ across your website and your reviews! Lo and behold, in the various reviews, the company in question, you wrote a skating report on them and deservedly so! As mentioned before a company in Utah designing websites, you may recall whom I am referring to!?
Focusing on relevant products makes it easier to make quality referrals because there’s a nice overlap between your audience and the product you’re promoting. If you’re a fitness blogger, for example, it wouldn’t exactly fit in with the rest of your content if you started promoting video games and electronics that aren’t applicable to your niche. Instead, you might find a company whose products focus on protein powders, vitamins, workout equipment, etc.
Hey Elizabeth, I’m not sure if you can do this from a library because whenever you go to the library they seem to block access to certain websites. I’m not sure if Wealthy Affiliate would be one of them or not because I have never went to the library to use a computer, I have my own. If you have a mobile device such as a smartphone or Ipad that would work with this. You could go to the library and try and join Wealthy Affiliate from there and see if they allow you to or not. I’m just not 100% sure about this. I’m sorry I couldn’t be more help and if you have any more questions I will do my best to answer them for you and help you out.
Making money… that’s also a different story. I made my very first commission within 10 days of starting my WA training. It was $33 and it was late 2007. I have been making a full time income online since early 2008. Some people will see income within a week while others will take months to get there. It’s just like starting any business, online or offline. Results will vary based on many different things. Unfortunately many people jump into online business thinking they will get rich quick without doing much work and that’s a wrong mindset. If you start an offline business you’ll have to spend 2-3-4 years without salary, just making your investment back. You’ll also need $50,000 – $500,000 to start that business. While online you can start virtually with zero money and you’ll see results a lot faster than in a traditional brick and mortar business. If you want to see instant results than a business is not for you. Online or offline.
I worked hard at this and spent as much time as I possibly could on this everyday and within 4 months I had made my first sale. Wealthy Affiliate provides you with all the tools and training needed for you to be successful, the only thing missing is you. If you work hard at this and dedicate yourself to the training lessons, take action on what you learn, and ask questions when you have them then there’s no reason why you couldn’t be just as successful as I have been or more.

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.


Affiliate marketers usually choose between a resource site and a review site for the type of content they intend to provide for their readers. A resource site contains all the information about products related to the industry and needs to be updated regularly so that it is top-of-mind for the customers. You post articles that generally talk about the industry, give overviews of new launches, talks about the changes in the industries, post how-to articles, and more.

Individual sellers and companies offering products or services have to deal with their consumers and ensure they are satisfied with what they have purchased. Thanks to the affiliate marketing structure, you’ll never have to be concerned with customer support or customer satisfaction. The entire job of the affiliate marketer is to link the seller with the consumer. The seller deals with any consumer complaints after you receive your commission from the sale.
I have recently joined this group of affliates.I was seeing so many promises of riches without any work in the online business areana that I had almost given up.In my research I found the group to have excellent reviews. I had started the free offers before many reviews I read from my own discernmemt of the group.The more reviews I saw,and after communication with one of the owners,kyle,I decided to become a premium member.I am far from educated in the realm of being a business owner,and certainly not familiar with the online atmosphere from my construction manual labor background.I am very thankful to sites like this to confirm my doubts on scam sites and the reinforced belief in the few honest people on the web.Thanks Jack,Your Opinion Is Priceless In This Area For Those Of Us Who Have No Experience.
3. Joining a community – Some programs house an exclusive private community of like-minded people. A community where you can share ideas, collaborate and empower each other on your collective online journey. This alone is worth its weight in gold. Help is always just around the corner and you will be motivated by fellow members to persevere and keep going no matter how you feel!
4. Zero Entitlement – This has been the death of many potentially successful marketers on the internet. Affiliate marketing is no get rich quick scheme — it’s a business that requires dedication, effort and hard work. If you feel entitled to earn money because you placed a few ads or you followed a guide and are expecting instant or guaranteed returns, you will be killed! Failure is just a lesson learnt and a step closer to success.
Wow this is a really comprehensive review of Wealthy Affiliate and I have learned things I never knew even though I’ve been a member for nearly 3 months. I love the program though and agree with what you have said. I also love the testimonials you have and the evidence you have given that people can make a living online. My own income is small but growing and i know that I’m investing in my future. Thanks for such an thorough review.
I will be getting in contact with you within 60 minutes of you joining to make sure you arrived OK and to answer any questions you may have.
