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 🙂
I googled a product provider like Amazon and saw how much It would cost me to actually make a partnership with them, I was surprise to find it was free for the first month but than I saw after that, it was $25 per month? And than I was horrified to read further down the email that was sent to me, Kyle, claiming it took him three whole months just to earn his first dollar! I would have lost $50 by the time I saw my first dollar, which would have been about 80p because I live in the United Kingdom.
An affiliate marketing program is a lot of work, and in most situations there's a lot of competition so you're not going to be bringing in money immediately. Business owners and entrepreneurs suppose that all you need do is setup a site and choose an affiliate to associate with and then just let it run its course. But according to Three Ladders Marketing, only 0.6% of affiliate marketers surveyed have been in the game since 2013. That means that affiliate marketing takes time and effort to build and make money.
Hello, I’m very interested in getting into the Dot.com world not to get Rich but hopefully to try and make a little supplemental income. I honestly don’t have a ton of money to spend and I’m pretty new to all of this. I was gonna do the Mobe thing but did my research and OH MY GOSH!!! they are asking for a lot of money for no guarantee return.. I understand nothing is guarante’d but for that system it’s not for people who live week to week like me…. I came across Wa on a review stating it was fairly inexpensive with a monthly membership charge.
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.
Btw. What I meant by WA is forcing us to be pay members or cancel everything is you can’t be a starter member forever if you want to grow your business as sub domain is not the way and you don’t have the freedom to upgrade within your starter account without upgrading to premium, then you can’t go back even if you can’t afford it while if you cancel, you lose everything!
I was told by Nathaniell, on a pretty good site that I thought was legitimate, that I could enhance my existing site by adding marketing for products related to my already niche field of Kitchen Design, and get paid for it! Silly me! I thought it was somewhat curious that I could go to a company like Design Within Reach, and ask them if I could market for them, and have them pay me. I didn't see how this could work. There was some kind of program partnership that wasn't fully explained. So after much resistance I signed up with a backup email to try it out for 7 days, and see if I could learn as much as I could. 
After being accepted into an affiliate program, marketers receive a unique URL that includes their affiliate ID. They share that unique URL with their subscribers, site visitors, and social networks via text links or ads. When someone clicks on that link, affiliate software records that click and any resulting product sales in the affiliate’s account. When commissions reach a pre-determined threshold, the affiliate is paid.
Path #2: To leverage on a business that is already setup, just like MOBE. These programs offer you a license to promote their products when you buy them, and you can potentially earn a lot of money when someone signs up through your affiliate link. To make money with them, you’ll only need to drive high quality traffic to their business, and the business will take care of everything. Problem is, as a beginner, you will not know how to attract the right traffic, and that’s where most people fail (because they don’t have the fundamental knowledge about Internet Marketing). That is why I always recommend to start from Path #1, because you will learn the entire game of Internet Marketing from ground up.
As for people viewing through comments, I know you many have quite a few questions. I know Frank has already clarified that it works! Many may ask if it is worth the money. I think you will be the judge of that! I encourage you to use up the first free days and then use the $19 a month deal for your first month. Only then will you really understand how it is worth it! You learn so much more, and it’s almost like being enrolled in a college class, without time limits, and with a HUGE community of support to help you! I remember that any time I got frustrated, there was always someone to go to! I had about 5 or 6 that I constantly went to! So if you afraid to join because you are totally new to any of this, DON’T BE! I was too, and I am very proud of what all I learned! There is no better place to start than WA!
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?
Hey Ryan thanks for the comment, All of this training on how to create visual graphics and star ratings is covered in the Boot camp at Wealthy Affiliate. Anyone can achieve this level of success and beyond if they just follow the training provided. I’m glad you liked it and thanks for stopping by if you ever need any help getting started let me know and I would love to help you out man.
There are many other online forums and programs that talk about making money online but whenever you ask a simple question many users will reply with: “Dude, this stupid question has been asked many times before – just google it!” – You will not get this kind of reply on WA. Wealthy Affiliate is a learning center so there are no stupid questions, every question is important and people will try to answer it as well as they can. However if you do not feel comfortable asking a question (don’t be shy, just ask!) you could simply look through the resources and questions other people asked – I can almost guarantee you will find your answer within minutes.
If you have spent any considerable amount of time researching Wealthy Affiliate you might have realized there are virtually no bad reviews about WA online. Whenever you think of customer’s rant and feedback you realize that unhappy customers are a lot more tempted to leave a bad review online than the satisfied once. This is true for restaurants, dentists, car dealerships and of course online training programs. Well over 100,000 people have joined Wealthy Affiliate since 2005 and as you can see the vast majority is completely happy with Wealthy Affiliate and everything it has to offer. This is why it’s almost impossible to find any bad press about WA online.
If you are serious about starting up an online business and you are willing to work hard at this it will be impossible for you to fail if you give it everything you got. I would suggest that you get started by opening your free account using the “Join Now” button above. I will be getting in contact with you shortly after you join to welcome you to the community and answer any questions you might have.

Hi,I have been contemplating joining WA for a while now. My life circumstances have changed recently. I want and need to begin an at home business, and I think WA will help me get there. I just signed up for the premium membership and am very excited to begin. But thats the $64000 question…Where to begin? Thank you for this review site info. It was very helpful to help me decide take the plunge. 🙂
While any “regular” job requires you to be at work to make money, affiliate marketing offers you the ability to make money while you sleep. By investing an initial amount of time into a campaign, you will see continuous returns on that time as consumers purchase the product over the following days and weeks. You receive money for your work long after you’ve finished it. Even when you’re not in front of your computer, your marketing skills will be earning you a steady flow of income.
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.
Online affiliate marketing is wide open. You can write about or promote whatever you want! However, the incredible amount of possibilities can be overwhelming, and that leaves a lot of people saying that they don't have any good ideas. There are literally hundreds of comments below saying “I don't know which topic to pick”, or “I don't have any hobbies so what should I do?”.
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.
And I always suggest people to be honest. I am not sure where you got the idea that you need to scam people or spamming people in order to make money online. In fact, I think honest reviews and suggestions work much better. Many of those low quality websites that spam people or publish a bunch of dishonest reviews fail within a few months. Honesty is the only way to go in my opinion.
Yes, 2 hours would be a great starting point for you and if this is all the time you can devote to this starting out that’s perfectly fine. No, you wouldn’t need to invest in hosting as this is included with your membership as long as you’re a premium member. Everything you need to get started is included with your membership and there aren’t any costs outside of the premium membership.
The live webinars are held every Friday evening at 8PM EST 5PM Pacific. If you happen to miss them don’t worry because they are recorded and you can watch them anytime and on your schedule. I would suggest that you open your FREE account today, fill out your profile (With an image and a brief description of yourself) and get started on your first training lesson.

I used wealthy affiliate for 3 months and it was confusing. It is more of a social club. The training was vague as they wanted you to go to their forum and ask the members for answers. The forum would not answer my questions most of the time or I couldn't find the answer on their website. I had a disappointing experience with their support and they were very rude and would not help and they should have. I am sure they are overwhelmed with questions and don't have the time or just don't have the disposition for customer service. Anyway, it was a complete waste of my time. I have since joined another affiliate marketing education site and it has been a wonderful and enlightening experience and their support is fast to respond, have a friendly disposition and answer my questions thoroughly. So, in summary their are a lot better alternatives out there besides wealthy affiliate.
There are certain countries where the the FREE membership isn’t available and unfortunately India happens to be one of those countries. If you weren’t able to sign up for the free membership then you haven’t really created your account then have you? I would definitely advise you to join under me and I will have a talk with Kyle the co owner of WA and see what he can do about this. He always finds a way around this for other people and I’m sure he will be able to do something to make sure you get setup with your FREE starter membership.
Yes you can start up a website in the cooking niche. We have many other WA members who are involved in this niche and they are doing really well with it. You could definitely put up your own recipes and share them with everyone. The FREE Starter membership is forever and it never expires. Once you join you will gain instant access to your 2 free websites, your first certification course as well as the highest quality tools available to start up an online business.
Udemy.com – Udemy is an online training platform where “instructors” can create courses and sell them to “students”. There are some extremely high quality courses on Udemy created by high quality instructors who really have made a lot of money online, but there are a lot of very low quality courses as well. Most of the higher quality courses are quite expensive, sometimes exceeding $100. While the training might be good, the training on Wealthy Affiliate is excellent as well, plus you get all the tools, community, and support included as well. Once again, I believe Wealthy Affiliate is the better option.
To be honest Wealthy Affiliate appealed to me when I first joined in 2007 because they also never promised any riches overnight. They never bombarded me with pictures of guys in rented mansions or driving rented Lamborghinis. They actually did a great job explaining that building a successful business online requires hard work and a time investment.
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]
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.
Wealthy Affiliate was launched in 2005 and it has been growing and improving for all these years. The founders invest hundreds of thousands of dollars into the platform every single year. When I first joined in 2007 the site looked completely different and I must admit, it had less training and less support. They had less tools and the site navigation was complicated.

If you already have a product you would like to sell then this will give you a big headstart and you will be able to advance in the training faster than everyone else. WA could definitely help you out and show you how to market your gift baskets and get them in front of targeted buyers. You don’t need to be a great writer or even be good at writing blogs. I started out here over 2 years ago and I was absolutely horrible at writing and my grammar wasn’t the greatest.
