However, I know what you are referring to. You found the information about Amazon Sellers. If you want to sell your OWN product on Amazon you will have to pay $40/month (25 pounds?) as a vendor but that’s a totally different business and that’s not what Wealthy Affiliate teaches you. How I know the difference? I have been an amazon associate since 2008 and Amazon Seller since 2015.

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! 🙂

Hi there, The greatest thing about affiliate marketing is you don’t need your own products to be able to make money. Affiliate marketing is just one of the many ways that you can make money online. If you really are interested in a opportunity like this then I think you owe it to yourself to check out Wealthy Affiliate and see if this is something you are interested in doing. You can get started for Free and there is no risk whatsoever.
Thanks for the informative article! I’m just wondering since I signed up for some course in the past but they required more time time investment than I expected. As I have some other personals goals so I’m just wondering as you said it takes few weeks to get things up and running, but getting commission is different story. So what is required after having website done to get commission? and How long would that take? and how much time does it take to for regular maintenance? Thanks so much!
Affiliate marketing currently lacks industry standards for training and certification. There are some training courses and seminars that result in certifications; however, the acceptance of such certifications is mostly due to the reputation of the individual or company issuing the certification. Affiliate marketing is not commonly taught in universities, and only a few college instructors work with Internet marketers to introduce the subject to students majoring in marketing.[36]
1. Finding a mentor – When you first get started with affiliate marketing, you need guidance. You will have a million questions to ask and having a mentor really does make a significant difference in terms of starting you off in the best possible way and giving you the correct advice you need to start taking action and build your internet business.
It’s always best to learn how to do something yourself so you can save money and gain more knowledge of how everything works. Other than that there’s no way to streamline the process. I really hope this has helped you out Meeri and has helped answer your questions. I really think WA could help you get your foot in the door of affiliate marketing and show you how to build a very profitable online business.
Yes this opportunity is available nationwide and is open for everyone.

I will be contacting you within the first 60 minutes of you joining to answer any questions you have and welcoming you to the community.
The best way to engage and tie-up with affiliates is to build up a reputation by providing good content. Connect with bloggers in the same niche as yours, cross-promote your products, and build a relationship with them. You can find successful affiliates through forums and online platforms. Some of the most popular affiliate networks are Clickbank, Commission Junction, Amazon Affiliate Programme, and Linkshare, to name a few.
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.
So I was almost convinced to join ‘Ameriplan’ when I googled reviews for it and came across this website and started browsing… And I am so glad I did! I have a newborn baby, and want to work from home to avoid getting a sitter, and anyone with kids knows that you just dont have money to waste on a SCAM… diapers are expensive! lol But, I was reading this article and I would really like to know more about it… Do you have to pay the $47.00 before you start making money? And what exzactly are you getting paid for?
OMG Machines is not a true blue affiliate course. The main thing they teach is client SEO consulting. Their affiliate section isn't that big or robust. They focus way more on client SEO. Client SEO is what they call it when a business pays you monthly for you to rank their website on the first page of Google. It's cool because you can make money fast, but you're helping to build someone else's asset, not your own like with affiliate sites.
For example, if you love video games – you should start a website that talks about video games and helps people make a purchasing decision. If you love motorcycles – you can start a website that talks about motorcycles, motorcycle accessories and parts to make your bike better. On this website you can tell people about all of those awesome products and tell them where they can buy these products (Amazon, etc.) and whenever people make a purchase – you get a commission! You do not need to take care of the warehouse storage, shipping, payments, customer service – you simply help people find the products they already want and you get paid for it.
I think that area is where I’m seeing gray and a little confused by. I would LOVE to continue to stay home with my children, but baby daddy (ha) has been on workman’s comp since April when he was seriously Injured and making only 66% of your normal pay can be very debilitating! I’m now needing to find a way to help supplement. I really dislike the idea kf working some blah job and making someone else money. But would I just be making YOU money here ? and needing to recruit others the same way you are trying to do now? I know your review says no, but it’s not making sense.
I feel that the premium membership is the best choice that I have ever made and the training is the best I have ever seen. I would suggest that you open your FREE account, fill out your profile by adding a picture and writing a brief description about yourself and then check out everything that WA has to offer. If you have any questions along the way I will be there to answer them for you and help you get started.
A: Unfortunately the whole industry of internet marketing has earned quite a negative reputation. This happened mostly because of dishonest folks who would scam people by promising to reveal a secret shortcut to millions for a simple fee of $197 (or $39, or $57, or $1,997). As I often mention throughout my blog and my podcast, there isn’t an easy way to riches. What makes Wealthy Affiliate very attractive is their starter membership. With this FREE membership you only get access to a small part of WA training but it’s more than enough to show you the tremendous value you will get inside, without risking a single penny of your hard-earned money. The simple fact of letting people in for free eliminates any possibility of Wealthy Affiliate being a scam.

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.
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 🙂

Wealthy Affiliate offers detailed in depth training on how to do this and you can even get started for Free. If you haven’t done so already I would recommend that you sign up for your free account by clicking on the blue “Become A Member” button above. I really am looking forward to working with you Jackie and I hope this has helped answer your question. If you have any other questions for me or need my help please let me know.
You should definitely do this if you want to try it out at a discount, but this is totally up to you man. I can totally relate to you having trouble affording an extra $50 a month because I used to live that way for practically my whole life. All I can say is if you go through the training and follow it exactly how it’s laid out and take action you will start to see results.

The whole membership site is just a clever cover for the infamous pyramid scheme. And since all the members posts these fake standard sounding positive reviews all over the internet, it’s pretty much impossible to find any criticism of WA. Not even the best and most respected membership sites have only positive reviews. The creators of WA are indeed cunning and very clever scammers.
Now that I’ve read your article, it appears that what you’ve written makes since. I’m a truck driver, who’s just trying to make something different of his life. What makes you any different ? How can I be sure that you’ll offer the same support that SFM claims to provide, but for less money ? I’m not being skeptical, cautious at this point because I don’t have much money to waste, but I am looking to make a difference.

The free websites aren’t transferable as they belong to WA, but you can transfer the content on them to another domain using the export feature in WordPress. You don’t need a business package from anywhere to have a good looking website. The only thing you need is your domain name if you decide to purchase your own domain. I NEVER have purchased any of those business package deals and I have been at this for over 2 years now and I’m making good money at it.

It was the complete opposite for my gaming headset site which I only had 3 or 4 reviews written before I made my first sale from Amazon. The competition of your niche also plays a huge part in this as well. As for how many words your articles need to be there is no required length that they need to be in order to get rankings in Google. You just need to make sure that your articles are in depth, and that you are giving people all the information that they need to make a sound decision on whether they should purchase the product that you are recommending or not.

Hello Chris, I am planning to join Wealthy Affiliate as a premium. But I am a 33-yr old woman who does not have a common sense like I get from most people. I am also a woman who does not have that much intellectual capacity. So I’m not sure how much my brain can comprehend and how much my brain can take all the information from WA. Do you think I should just give it a try?
Hi Candice, This varies because everyone’s level of learning is different. If you are willing to spend at least an hour or two a day on this and you give it everything you got then I would say in a 6 months time you should be making money by that time. It is really hard to say how much you could be making but I would think any amount would be good. I will give you a little background into my experience when I first started doing this, I also had no experience whatsoever. I started this a little over a year ago and it took me a little longer to catch on then it does most people.

I'm really grateful for the Wealthy Affiliate platform. It has allowed me to flourish as an affiliate by providing me with all the tools I needed to review products and make profitable affiliate sites. It also has given me access to real affiliates that I can ask questions if I get stuck. I am paying it forward in the same way it was paid forward to me.
Thanks Rick, I think if people see proof that you are making money at this then that will show them that this is a real opportunity . Anyone no matter what skill level you are can get started today in their own online business. When I first came here I had no idea what I was doing. Thanks to the awesome training at Wealthy Affiliate, I now have an awesome website that is ranking very well in Google and I am making sales from it. I really appreciate you stopping by and leaving a comment Rick and if I can help you out in your online campaigns just let me know.
Ok so I’ll bite. Tell me why someome that searches for any kind of product wouldn’t just go to the direct supplier rather than filtering through a long winded site to eventually click on an affiate link? If one happens to fall upon someones website as result of a search word only to discover an implanted link takes them to the actual seller, what keeps them from exiting their website and then going directly to the actual seller’s site, such as Amazon for one? I do this all the time.
Solo Build It – As I stated earlier in this Wealthy Affiliate review, I initially learned how to start my own business with this service. Solo Build It is somewhat similar to Wealthy Affiliate as far as the training is concerned, but Solo Build It but I believe the training at Solo Build It is far superior. My favorite part about Solo Build It, however, is that they offer absolutely EVERYTHING you’ll ever need to grow your business online including domain registration, an intuitive site builder, research tools, hosting, and all the other tools you need are in one place with training on how to put it all together. You can learn a lot more about them by going through their video tour.
Just take amazon as an example. In order to earn money from Amazon, you have to sign up as a partner with them. Once you have signed up, you will be given a unique affiliate link. You can promote this link by placing it in your own website, etc. When people clicks on that link, and purchase something, you make a commission from the successful sale. You do not need to handle the transaction nor are you selling stuff. You are connecting potential buyers to retailers.
You will also have direct access to my expert help and support along with 1,000’s of other experienced marketers who will be there to answer any questions you have starting out. The only thing you lose access to after 7 days is the communication aspect. This means you won’t be able to ask questions, participate in the live chat or communicate with anyone. This is a premium only feature and you are given full access to this so that you can try out everything WA has to offer for 7 days without having to pay for it up front.

My name is Nathaniell and you found WA through my site. I remember the comment you left, and I specifically told you to contact me within the website because the basic training did not apply to you and I could find you training that would be more suitable to your needs. I guess you didn't read the response, because you went ahead and went through the training anyway.
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…
WA is the only legit place that will teach you how to setup a business online that I have found in my 20+ years of research. If it wasn’t for them I wouldn’t be as successful online as I am today. I don’t want you to feel like you are excluded from this because you aren’t. I will work something out for you so that you can join the premium membership at WA.

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.
Sure, I could let the countdown timer reach zero before I made my decision and, when I felt comfortable about it, I would later pay the full price of $47. Even this amount is not that high. Think about how much you spend every day on your newspapers and magazines — when there are free online news sites — and how much that totals by the end of each month
This support will be by email or personal message or whatever way you are most comfortable with just let me know. If you haven’t already done so I would encourage you to sign up for your Free account and fill out your profile by adding a image and description. I will be getting in touch with you shortly after that to guide you in the right direction. i look forward to working with you Dennis and if you have anymore questions please let me know.
If you can figure out how to develop traffic (visitors) to your website and learn how to convert those visitors into sales then you can make money in any niche. A lot of people get this process wrong and end up not making any money. And one of the biggest reasons is because have not correctly identified the right group of people to focus their efforts on.
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.

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!!:

It also helps to think outside the box. Pinch of Yum long ago set up a blogging resources page, which talks about which host to go with, what sort of plugins you need to use, which theme to use, etc. Because some of these products are recurring (eg. hosting affiliate programs), this page continues to bring in money over time, long after someone makes the original purchase.

There’s No catches or ANY risk involved whatsoever. You can get started for Free like I said above, and you’ll get the chance to see what you will be doing and if this is something you would be interested in making a career out of. You’ll also be able to check out everything they have to offer and then make the decision as to whether you would like to invest in their advanced premium training. I will also be there to help you every step of the way and answer any questions you may have for me. If there is something you don’t understand I will be there to explain it to you.
It's a little awkward, so we'll get straight to the point: This Monday we humbly ask you to defend Wikipedia's independence. We depend on donations averaging about $16.36. But 98% of our readers in the U.S. are not responding to our messages, and time is running out to help in 2018. If everyone reading this gave $2.75, we could keep Wikipedia thriving for years to come. The price of your Monday coffee is all we need. When we made Wikipedia a non-profit, people warned us we'd regret it. But if Wikipedia were commercial, it would be a great loss. Wikipedia unites all of us who love knowledge: contributors, readers and the donors who keep us thriving. The heart and soul of Wikipedia is a community of people working to bring you unlimited access to reliable information. Please take a minute to help us keep Wikipedia growing. Thank you.
I suppose my questions are threefold: 1) Are there niches pertaining to the performing arts? 2) Do you believe a right-brained person can really learn the logistics of affiliate marketing enough to turn it into primary income? 3) Due to my lack of finances, could I start with learning in the free program and upgrade to the premium when I can better afford it?
Wow! Where to start first/ Great review and very detailed. I liked the part about how you started. The review itself was laid out in a very in order and organized manner. Very easy to understand and I felt as though you were talking face to face with me. I liked your reasons to join and reasons not to join. The whole decision process is pretty straight forward for the reader once he or she has finished reading the review. Nice work, and well done.
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.
If you would like to take a more subtle approach, include a product or service from your company that relates into your blog post. For example, let’s say that you are a wine connoisseur and that is what your blog is based around. In any post that is enticing your readers to open up a good bottle of Merlot or what have you, it would be wise to embed an ad for a quality, easy-to-use wine opener, wine glasses or stoppers that keep the wine fresh.

Hi,Will..your site is helpful and very informative…the way you lay out all process is awesome,so i have some questions to ask you brother…i live in africa ,french country so my english is not good ,i continue to improve it everyday since i discover the power of internet marketing specially affiliate marketing through Wealthy affiliate University…can i learn to write reviews like you and other successful people even if my english is not too good?or first can i write posts in my native language ,that’s my main problem,waiting for your fast reply …thanks in advance will!!

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.
Wherever you have an internet connection this will work for you and you can receive payments from either Paypal or direct deposit to your European bank account. I have been doing this for a little over a year now and I absolutely love it. If you haven’t already done so I would suggest that you get started by opening your FREE account here and setup your profile by adding a picture and writing a little about yourself in the description. After you do that get started on your first training lesson. I will be there to guide you 100% of the way if you need help or have any questions.
I am interested in doing something like this but I don’t have much life experience. I have Fibromyalgia and was denied disability, but am not able to work outside the home. Something like this would be perfect for me. However, I can’t afford to purchase items to try them out to give a review or write about them. I was really excited when your site said you would teach me step by step for free! Then really disappointed when it came down to costing money. Regardless of that, you seem like a nice guy. Do you have any advice for me?
Always disclose your affiliate relationship. Most visitors will probably understand that graphic ads will lead to your getting paid, but if you write a review or use an in-text link as a recommendation, you want your readers to know that may lead to compensation as well. This ensures you retain transparency and trust with your readers, but also, it's required by the FTC's endorsement rules.
Hi Scott I found your website and basically loved what I seen. I’m just having a few issues, when I try to sign up it says it already have an account (which I do not this is my very first time). But I still took the step as if I previously signed up before and then it said I don’t even have and account with you guys, which is what I figured, so I’m a little lost and its not letting me sign up at all. 🙁 Please Help
There are 2 options you have when you decide to join the premium membership at WA.

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.
The best overall assessment of WA I’ve read yet. I’ve been a member on and off since 2015 and I’m currently on the yearly membership through October. However, I’ve still not made any real money, although I’ve made a bit here and there. I will peruse your site. On the other hand, I will ask you straight up how you go about establishing affiliate partnerships? Part of my problem is I’m not clear about what to market. As a life insurance agent, I’ve tried that to no avail. I’ve also tried marketing WA itself with very minimal results. I’m an affiliate with Amazon, EBay, and Target but I’m doing nothing. To be fair, I have not been as focused on WA and affiliate marketing as I once was. I’m also a teacher and have returned to the classroom. I found myself in bankruptcy as the result of putting all my eggs in one basket, going full-bore with WA, spending all my time and credit there. I remain hopeful I’ll one day finally get it. I’m out of school for the summer and plan to spend at leas the next 2-3 months as close to full time as possible.
It's a little awkward, so we'll get straight to the point: This Monday we humbly ask you to defend Wikipedia's independence. We depend on donations averaging about $16.36. But 98% of our readers in the U.S. are not responding to our messages, and time is running out to help in 2018. If everyone reading this gave $2.75, we could keep Wikipedia thriving for years to come. The price of your Monday coffee is all we need. When we made Wikipedia a non-profit, people warned us we'd regret it. But if Wikipedia were commercial, it would be a great loss. Wikipedia unites all of us who love knowledge: contributors, readers and the donors who keep us thriving. The heart and soul of Wikipedia is a community of people working to bring you unlimited access to reliable information. Please take a minute to help us keep Wikipedia growing. Thank you.
Cookie stuffing involves placing an affiliate tracking cookie on a website visitor's computer without their knowledge, which will then generate revenue for the person doing the cookie stuffing. This not only generates fraudulent affiliate sales but also has the potential to overwrite other affiliates' cookies, essentially stealing their legitimately earned commissions.

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.
Will my target audience realistically spend this amount for the product? Again, your reputation is on the line here. Is the product you are thinking of promoting priced reasonably for your audience? When I was writing my ebook, I was stuck on pricing. I asked around for opinions. A number of people suggested I price my ebook at $47! Their idea was to price according to value, not size. In my mind that was crazy. My network was composed of a lot of stay-at-home bloggers, and my collective audience was comprised mostly of people without a whole lot of disposable income. There was no way anyone was going to pay $47 for my 30-page ebook.

After about 3 and a half months I had made my first sale and that was probably one of the best days of my life, I was so excited. It also confirmed that this was real and that anyone no matter who they are or what their skill level was could learn to do this. By my sixth month I was making around a couple hundred bucks a month with it increasing every day. I now am making a full time living from doing this and I absolutely love it.


All of this is taken care of for you by the company. You will be setting up a website that will be driving traffic to well known companies and you’ll get paid a commission when someone makes a purchase using your special affiliate id link that you will get when you join their affiliate program. All of this is explained in full detail when you join.
In April 2008 the State of New York inserted an item in the state budget asserting sales tax jurisdiction over Amazon.com sales to residents of New York, based on the existence of affiliate links from New York–based websites to Amazon.[40] The state asserts that even one such affiliate constitutes Amazon having a business presence in the state, and is sufficient to allow New York to tax all Amazon sales to state residents. Amazon challenged the amendment and lost at the trial level in January 2009. The case is currently making its way through the New York appeals courts.
These videos would be free for all of my Wealthy Affiliate referrals since I get commission from those. If you're not a wealthyaffiliate members, I would charge a small monthly fee just to weed out the haters who might try to sabotage the site, and to compensate me for the time and effort of recording the videos and explaining each step along the way.
Do you have zero interest in an expensive mountain bike the company you are an affiliate of sells? Well, you probably don’t want to feature it on your blog, as it is extremely difficult to persuade readers (or anyone for that matter) that they should buy something you wouldn’t be caught spending a single penny on. When you are passionate about a product or–at the very least–interested in learning more about it, this will come through to your readers, engage them and better coax them to buy
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.
