I won’t recommend you to Wealthy Affiliate if your intention is to promote your own products. Wealthy Affiliate is focused on teaching people how to promote other people’s products. For promoting your own products, I recommend that you learn specific skillsets like Copywriting and Facebook Advertising, and both of which Lurn provides (Click on the links above to read the reviews).
As you may know, you can get a free or Basic account. You can also opt for Premium access which costs $49 a month. There are perks to joining with Premium access because you can get much more from the program in terms of training and opportunity. For example, with the $49 a month subscription you get 50 websites rather than just two. You also get more training and the one-on-one coaching is unlimited.
There was one thing that I did have, and that was a desire to learn this stuff and become successful in this business. It doesn’t matter if you are 16 years old or 60 years old. If you have a burning desire to succeed here, and you would like to learn a new skill that could change your life for the better than I would highly suggest that you check out WA.
A: Yes, Wealthy Affiliate works in Canada. In fact, it works in every country. WA teaches you how to build an online business. As long as you have access to internet you can start building your own business. I am based in Montreal, Canada but I know many members who live (and successfully earn an income) in Australia, UK, Germany, Poland, India, Ukraine, Russia, France, Chile and many many other countries.

Writing good advertising sales copy (copywriting) is the other important skill for internet marketers. The good news is that when it comes to affiliate marketing, many vendors will provide you with copy to use for your blog posts, websites ads, etc. They'll give you the emails to send, the banner ads to display, and even posts you can use on social media (such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc.).


Jack, my hat is off to you for your online success. I had heard about Wealthy Affiliate a few years ago, but never pursued it due to the need for more immediate income at the time. I had forgotten all about it until I recently became interested in affiliate marketing again. After finding a few scammers in the space, I came across Wealthy Affiliate again. Right away, I knew WA was the real deal and a great choice, so I proceeded to give it a test drive by signing up for the free account. I totally expected to upgrade quickly, but wanted to have a look around to be absolutely sure before upgrading to a premium account. After signing in, I was shocked to read the following statement on the next page, “Free Starter accounts are not available in your country, but we would love to have you as a Premium Member!”. Please understand that I am not sharing this to trash WA in any way, but I feel that others should be aware that there are exceptions to the free trial. I am an American who happens to be traveling abroad, so unfortunately due to geo-tracking, the country I am currently visiting is being blocked from their free trial offer. I’m not a “Cheap Charlie” and not just looking for freebies, but this experience has caused me to reconsider whether I should join WA as a premium paid member without trying it before I buy it. It should also be noted that I was brought to the checkout page to pay first and the only option I was given was the annual payment @ $359.
The seller, whether a solo entrepreneur or large enterprise, is a vendor, merchant, product creator, or retailer with a product to market. The product can be a physical object, like household goods, or a service, like makeup tutorials. Also known as the brand, the seller does not need to be actively involved in the marketing, but they may also be the advertiser and profit from the revenue sharing associated with affiliate marketing.
Hi Jamaal, Yes it is possible to do this on a smartphone or tablet but it might be a little harder then if you were on a PC or laptop. The great thing about doing this through a mobile device is you can work on your business from anywhere as long as you have an internet connection. If you have any more questions or need help getting started feel free to hit me up man.
Use your personal words & experience with the product. Your own content, or photos & videos of yourself using the product are always the most effective. For example, many affiliate programs provide swipe copy to their affiliates which is pre-written emails, post material or social media posts. These can be helpful as a guide, but they often scream swipe copy, aren’t written in your voice (the one your readers know!) and if a lot of affiliates are using it, are overdone.
WA isn’t a domain registrar so you would need to purchase your domains from either Go Daddy or Namecheap. If you do a search on Google for coupon codes you can usually acquire your own domain for only $1 for your first year and this will end up costing you $10-12 a year after that. You can add plugins to your site so that you can have a shopping cart on your site and be able to accept PayPal/credit cards eCommerce as well.
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.
Thank you for your input and honest comments on this system, it is of great help to think about it. I’m exploring building an online business and it seems to me, a lot of the success depends on really being able to generate qualified traffic to your opt-in page to build a subscribers list to begin with. For some reason, this aspect of the business is somewhat skipped through and not much information is given about it.
Wealthy Affiliate saves my life and I can tell you I have been with them for 6 months and already generating income. Yes they say it does take time to work it but you have to make it work as well. Even those like myself never knew how to build a website I manage to make sells already and that's not just selling WA information, but other products I created as my own niche. The negative impacts or comments some.of you have shared about Wealthy Affiliates are wrong. You just dont give the time nor the effort to accomplish the training and materials provided. And as far as assistance online with WA, I got beyond the assistance needed. Wealthy Affiliate I referred over 80 people and they ALL love it!! So with that being said I have no issues with WA. Stop making it seem like they are SCAMMING you out of your money....
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…

I came across many programmer like this but WA seems a little better. how you can help me finding a niche as I am confuse and not good at any thing. Maximum new WA members choosing to promote its affiliate programmer I don’t like this because I know nothing about how to make money online. First I will choose another niche and able to make $1000 per month then I will confirm that this the way for online earning(first I will prove it myself on further I will go to promote it). English is not my first language and before I have never written any content how I can write 1500 to 2500 words unlimited content, as we know content is the king in this business.

I get paid directly through Paypal as I find this is the easiest and safest way to get paid. If he has a background in Internet marketing then this should speed up the process and give him a head start above everyone else. I would get him signed up right away so that he can get started making money as soon as possible.Everything you need to succeed within the online world is right here at Wealthy Affiliate and you can get started for Free. I look forward to working with your brother and helping him out as much as I can.


I have just started WA and to anybody who is considering this, it has ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING that you need to succeed in affiliate marketing, but it comes with a catch….there is a ton you have to learn. 50 lessons in all. Think of this as going to school to learn a trade. From what I hear on the WA chat, you might make a full time living at it in one, two years or never. The advantage is that it’s a dirt cheap career. But no short cuts here. You gotta work at it, part time, full time, off and on like a lot of people, but everything you need is there. It’s all up to you. The only limitation, the only unknown factor IS YOU.
Also, you wrote a review on WA and on your recommendation I joined them, did not do anything with it and re-joined them a few years later again! Some months ago i was reading your website again and came across your reviews in particular “Proven Amazon Course” by Jim Cockrum. Consequently, I purchased his book and shortly thereafter I purchased the ‘PAC’ course! (You should have received — I hope — some commissions from all of these!?)
So, first you select whether you want a free domain or a paid domain. As a second step, you select the domain name you want (be careful, this can not be changed!). Next step is to select a Title for your website (don't worry, you can change this at any moment). Final step, is to choose a theme layout for your site. This can also be changed whenever you want.
Can you run a successful business by only using the free membership option at Wealthy Affiliate? Well, you can, but I wouldn’t recommend it. Instead, I recommend you sign up for the free Wealthy Affiliate membership as a way to try things out. Honestly, the free membership is set up to be a bit of a teaser to get you to sign up for premium eventually, but most of us expect that going in. What’s nice about it is you can judge for yourself, based on the free membership, whether it is worth it for you to sign up for premium. Ultimately, only you can decide if Wealthy Affiliate is high quality or not. You will get more than enough of an idea by signing up for their free membership option. On average, about 1 in every eight people upgrade to a premium membership.
With some of the more popular social media planes no longer favoring affiliate links...I needed a website to house my affiliate program. Also, the help to know how to manage it as well.  Turns out they were giving 2 free (hosted) siterubix websites which was exactly what I needed.  I can see how this will work for my other things I like to do own my own, like promoting my poetry and crafts.
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?
This Is Ok in my mind, because it is Your right, Im glad we can express ourselves. Im also glad You took the time for yourself, to look into WA.  I hope you will Understand my comment is on the otherside of yours. Im not a robot in any shape or form. I believe with all my experiance that its a good program and we both took our time here to express ourselves. We both deserve the respect for our opinion's. I respect yours You have a great life,my best wishes to your success JB

I have been a member of Wealthy Affiliate for close to a year. The lessons are great and easy to follow. There is so much information here that it takes a while to take it all in. They teach you to build your own website, join affiliate groups, write good content, and share it on social media. They have an awesome, positive community. I can talk to members from all over the world. We are willing to share our knowledge to help each other. After three months we can write trainings of our own to add to the wealth of information that is already available to WA members. It starts out free to join, with 7 days of free lessons, free starter membership and two free websites. You must go premium after that; but there is a discount for the first month. There is a discount also for going yearly. The training and community make the cost worthwhile. I give WA an A+++++++!
I’m just really lost on how the money is made and how you can provide discounts. I haven’t looked into online reviews Or anything as of yet. I was looking at different articles on your website (which is almost exactly what I’m interested in: Reviews, awesome deals found online, general help, parenting, bitching haha, etc) and I am interested BUT being in a financial situation, and having 4 kids, I can’t afford to lose any money (we are living paycheck to paycheck and barely making it! I’m not even sure “making it” is anywhere close to the phrase I should be using!) so I need to be 100% when making the decision to join and If I feel confidant in what I’m being told, I KNOW I will kick ass at whatever I need to do. I have zero doubt.Thanks so much!

The implementation of affiliate marketing on the internet relies heavily on various techniques built into the design of many web-pages and websites, and the use of calls to external domains to track user actions (click tracking, Ad Sense) and to serve up content (advertising) to the user. Most of this activity adds time[citation needed] and is generally a nuisance to the casual web-surfer and is seen as visual clutter.[citation needed] Various countermeasures have evolved over time to prevent or eliminate the appearance of advertising when a web-page is rendered. Third party programs (Ad-Aware, Adblock Plus, Spybot, pop-up blockers, etc.) and particularly, the use of a comprehensive HOSTS file can effectively eliminate the visual clutter and the extra time and bandwidth needed to render many web pages. The use of specific entries in the HOSTS file to block these well-known and persistent marketing and click-tracking domains can also aid in reducing a system's exposure to malware by preventing the content of infected advertising or tracking servers to reach a user's web-browser.[citation needed]

That was correct, everything is included all in 1 place so there is no need to go anywhere else. There have been several WA members that has had adult sites and they did good with them. This shouldn’t be a problem and if this is the niche that you would like to pursue I would advise you to do so. This is your business that you are building and you can choose anything that you would like.
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. 🙂
The wellness and organic living could be a very profitable niche to get involved with. With the help and support of WA you should be able to get started in this niche with no problem. (especially since you said you were passionate about it) If you follow the training and take action on what you have learned you will find it easy to have a website setup in no time selling these kinds of products.
I know that you too can achieve this level of success if you can devote an hour or two to it everyday. Wealthy Affiliate will teach you how to start an online business that will grow everyday. Everyone is different and you could make your first sale with a month or 2, or it might take you longer than that. This is all up to how committed you are to this and how much effort you put into it. The thing I love about this is that unlike a regular J.O.B the harder you work at this the more money you can make. With a job, you might get a .50 raise a year but since I have been doing this my income has raised almost $100 every month.
The problem with affiliate marketing, like many other home business options, are the so-called gurus and get-rich-quick programs that suggest affiliate marketing can be done fast and with little effort. Odds are you've read claims of affiliate marketing programs that say you can make hundreds of thousands of dollars a month doing almost nothing ("Three clicks to rich!"). Or, they suggest you can set up your affiliate site, and then forget it, except to check your bank deposits.

With your free Wealthy Affiliate membership, you'll also get a pretty nice keyword research tool. You'll be able to do 30 searches per month with it. It's essentially enough to get your research done for your first website. The keyword research lesson and tool are my favorite parts of Wealthy Affiliate. They have given me a serious advantage over my competition.
It’s important to know where your traffic is coming from and the demographics of your audience. This will allow you to customize your messaging so that you can provide the best affiliate product recommendations. You shouldn’t just focus on the vertical you’re in, but on the traffic sources and audience that’s visiting your site. Traffic sources may include organic, paid, social media, referral, display, email, or direct traffic. You can view traffic source data in Google Analytics to view things such as time on page, bounce rate, geo location, age, gender, time of day, devices (mobile vs. desktop), and more so that you can focus your effort on the highest converting traffic. This analytics data is crucial to making informed decisions, increasing your conversion rates, and making more affiliate sales. 
That’s nearly 60% off the regular price of $47 monthly. This discount is only valid for your first 7 days so you don’t wanna miss out on this. If you are interested in saving even more money I would highly suggest that you go for the yearly option of $359 for the entire year. This is a savings over over $200. If you can afford it this is definitely the way to go. Personally I would say that it would definitely be a worthwhile investment but this is totally up to you.

Wealthy Affiliate is pretty good at catching spammers, but that's only when someone reports them. If you're in live chat and someone offers to build your website for you because you're struggling and they're a pro, don't do it. They're just trying to cripple you and get you dependent on them. After you're dependent on them, they'll try to charge you for their services.
The business that I started with the help of WA is this website you are visiting right now. This is where I make most of my money, I have a few others that makes me a couple hundred a month. I am currently enrolled in the boot camp program that Wealthy Affiliate has. This website is the outcome of the boot camp training and it has been one wild ride.
Also, thank you for recommending Noisli. I get very distracted when working, so this white noise would be perfect. Music (classical) and white noise background sounds do help with concentration. It’s like success is handed right to me, I just need to do the work!!! The tools are all there, help and advice are all there, you see real people making real results. Well I can’t confirm that anybody is real online, but you know what I mean. I liked your sense of humor in this post as well. This review also included examples and talked more about how things work, such as the pages and keywords and how it takes time for your keywords to go up in google. It talks about the beginning where you weren’t making any money, but one day it started, and from then on it was making money itself!!!! Thank you for this review as it was extremely helpful and informative.
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.
Although Wealthy Affiliate will teach you different marketing strategies that are very helpful for any kind of business, they do concentrate on affiliate marketing. Affiliate Marketing means that you get paid a commission whenever someone buys a product that you recommend. Most companies offer affiliate programs (Amazon, eBay, Target, Airlines companies, credit card companies, etc.). Since more and more people buy things online instead of going to traditional stores (for obvious reasons) it’s only wise to claim your share of these sales online. What I always loved about WA is that they encourage you to do what you love – this makes running a business a lot more fun and profitable.

You could of hosted your site that was built and learnd more valuable information If you became a member. You did not like the platform and or the knowledge that, I would say is of great value. Because you knew it already.  Are there flaws in communication maybe. The person led you to the information to try to help you. If it was the wrong information im sure you would of found the right info there.
Note: Like regular browser cookies, affiliate link cookies also have an “expiration date.” So for example, if the affiliate program has it set up so that their cookies expire within 12 hours, the consumer has 12 hours to make the purchase and have the sale connected to your affiliate ID. The consumer can bookmark the link and come back to the product page later on, but as long as they make the purchase within that time, you’re golden!
Since you’re essentially a freelancer, you get ultimate independence in setting your own goals, redirecting your path when you feel so inclined, choosing the products that interest you, and even determining your own hours. This convenience means you can diversify your portfolio if you like or focus solely on simple and straightforward campaigns. You’ll also be free from company restrictions and regulations as well as ill-performing teams.
If you get started with the training it will walk you through each lesson and give you a few tasks to complete for each one. Depending on how hard you work at this it is possible to reach $1000 in 6 months time. The thing about this business is you will get out of it what you put into it. If you work really hard at this and learn all you can about building your online business you will be very successful.
Hi there Rajkamal, I’m very sorry to hear that you got confused last time when you joined WA and quit. It can be confusing when you are first starting out and that is why I am here to help you through the process and get you rolling here. I can assure you that if you sign up under me I will make sure that you understand everything and help you out as much as I possibly can. We have certification courses that are laid out so that you can follow them step by step. Each one has 10 lessons and once you are done you can check them off and move on to the next step.
