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.
You should see a screen that says something like “I’m sorry but our starter membership isn’t currently available in your country, but we would love to have you as a premium member”. Do you see anything like that on your sign up page? If you could tell me what’s preventing you from signing up I could help you solve the problem and get you signed up.
Continuing with my example above, in my article about roasting green coffee, I can find green coffee sellers and promote their coffee on my blog. In my article about home roasting coffee machines, I can promote my top 3 favorite home roasters. After I sign up for those affiliate programs (they are free to join), I just place my affiliate links in my content, and it automatically tracks sales. How to Make $1,000+ Per DAY with Affiliate Marketing!
Wow, what a thorough, and detailed review of Wealthy Affiliate. You have answered all of my questions, and then some. I now feel as though I have the information I need to make an educated decision. I am amazed at all of the benefits and training that Wealthy Affiliate provides, and 2 free websites to start out with. Anyone that has an interest in this program needs to see this review. Well done, and thanks for sharing. Tom

I would not recommend it to a new affiliate marketer because I would want someone new to have a more robust and focused course. New marketers need to set a good foundation. I would, however, recommend this course to seasoned affiliate marketers. Veteran marketers don't need as much structure and foundation setting. But getting one useful tip from a course is often time well worth the price of admission. Think of this course like a scavenger hunt.
I have no marketing talent whatsoever, but, I am happy to know that I can learn marketing talent and skill from Wealthy Affiliate. I do have a desire to make money online, and according to the reputation of Wealthy Affiliate, it seems like a viable choice to enlist their services. However, I have not the slightest idea of what good or service I could market and I’m skeptical that whatever idea I may have has already been done and is more popular and of more use than whatever good or service I have in mind. In this case I like the philosophy “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” I would add that I do have an interest in video games, making a website to encourage consumers on their purchasing decisions and increase their knowledge about video game software and hardware is an inventive suggestion, but isn’t there already many YouTube channels that do just this? Furthermore, even if I made such a website, I wouldn’t want to make money by scamming or much less spamming people with shameless product placements and advertisement placement populating the majority of such a website.
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.
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 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.
The primary purpose of any review, including this review of Wealthy Affiliate, is to help you decide if you should or should not sign up or purchase something. For starters, since you can sign up for a free account at Wealthy Affiliate, I think that is a no-brainer way to go. Don’t take my word or anyone else’s word for it, go see for yourself! There is no credit card required or anything like that. It’s completely free to try.
My question is – I know I can do the work, I just don’t have an idea at all on what to create or sell online. I have a lot of different interests, and above, when you show the comparison of free vs cost, one can get 2 websites for free and 50 for cost. Does this mean that you would create 2 or possibly 50 different types of businesses? I’m very new to this and want to get started asap.
Hi jack, thanks for all of your help in this. I recently saw a webinar for inbox blueprint 2.0. Of course they did a great job selling. I found you while I decided to do a little more research on the topic. For beginners in online email marketing like me, what do you recommend. Inbox blueprint claims they guide you step by step, however you recommend Wealthy Affiliate in this article. If you were beginning in this industry but have tons of online knowledge, which program would you choose. Thanks!
I must admit that WA is not a perfect choice for everyone. Wealthy Affiliate teaches people how to build a business and how to expand a business and take it to the next level. So in one word it teaches you Marketing. If you aren’t willing to learn and to take action than the whole concept of making money online isn’t for you. So who can really benefit from this program?
Take as much time as you need man there’s no sense in being in a rush. I have been involved in this industry for over 2 years now and I’m running a successful website so let me know any time you have any questions. You are in no way forced to be a premium member and I don’t want you to think that. The premium option is there for people who are ready to take their business to the next level and beyond.
My main gripe with OMG Machines, from an affiliate perspective, is that their affiliate training is limited at best. They definitely are great at teaching black hat SEO, but I found myself searching the internet for more information on affiliate marketing since the course doesn't cover much else. Wealthy Affiliate definitely covers the topic of affiliate marketing way better and is much more affordable. OMG Machines does not offer a money-back guarantee either. They say you need to commit and not have one foot out the door, so no refunds are allowed.
Thanks Jack, I’m in South Africa so with the exchange rate it’s really hard to buy into these companies like Digital Altitude and The 4 percent, I even tried to get a loan from the bank but my credit is not good so I was declined, I need to start earning extra money so I can sort that all out, if I had lots of money I wouldn’t need to… I appreciate your Review and will definitely have a look at WA
Making Sense Of Affiliate Marketing – An easy to follow online course that teaches you the ins and outs of affiliate marketing. It’s written by Michelle Schroder who makes $100K+ a month from her blog. A genuine super affiliate that shares her success stories and affiliate marketing techniques with her community both on her private Facebook group and on her blog.
Once you become a premium member you’ll be able to contact many experienced online marketers who have been making a living from this for many years. (Many of them are making 6 figures a year or more) If you are looking to make $1,000 per month within your first 3-6 months I would recommend that you devote at least 5-6 hours a day to this if you possibly can.
I would suggest that you get started by signing up for your FREE account and then filling out your profile by uploading a pic of yourself or using one of the ones that Wealthy Affiliate provides you with.Write a little about yourself in your profile description and let the community know what you would like to achieve and list some goals for yourself.
Once you start going through the training and get some content on your site you will be presented with the opportunity to submit your website to the community and have as many members as you want to provide you with some valuable feedback. Updating the content on your site may seem difficult at first, but you’ll find that this will get easier the more you do it.
I know the difference between other programs I joined before and WA. That’s why to me, WA is the best program I have ever known existing online. Let me assure anyone with doubts to try WA and you will see it’s the best program to start an online business with. Try it and you will find it the best program online. That’s my own opinion based on my experience on the many programs I joined before. Thanks so much Scott
One last note. I’ve been asked what I think of other affiliate marketing resources, both free and paid. I’m familiar with some of them, not all. I’ve read ebooks, watch videos, bought courses and more. So far, the only paid-for course that has impressed me enough to recommend is Kayla Aimee’s Affiliate Acceleration: Impactful Strategies To Increase Your Passive Income.
I see people who buy an online course and hope that it will help them get rich right off the bat. They want a complete A-Z. In reality, it’s always going to be a process of trying numerous courses, filtering information, testing things for yourself and seeing what works for you. Courses and mentors will get you there faster, but you will need to put in the work and think for yourself.
You should be able to Register At The Premium Level just fine. On the order screen where it asks you to pick your country, I would try and select another country from the list that is supported and see if you are able to join by doing this. If this still doesn’t help I could send Kyle(The Co-Owner of WA)a PM and inform him of this and see what he can do about it.

I heard so many good things with Wealthy Affiliate and am a current member, although I’ve been going through some of the videos and asking help from mentors, it’s better to have another helping hand and I’m glad I come across to you. Can you tell me more about how I can be more successful with WA? Oh, btw, I already got so far as making my own website although I just went along with the WA niche but I still need more help with how to make my contents more understandable and friendly browsing. Thank you for your help.
You sign up for FREE and never not once charge you a dime!! Unless you choose to upgrade that is your choice to do so! They never force or hassle money out of your pocket unlike other MLM companies online that try to make you scale up! Now that's SCAMMING ppl to not let them have the opportunity to have hands on access. WA they give you ALL ACCESS!! And people complaint about WA?? Are you kidding me!! I love Wealthy Affiliate and if some of you have issues about them them try to have myself and a million other followers and WA affiliates say anything negative... but that will suck because there is NOTHING NEGATIVE TO SAY ABOUT WEALTHY AFFILIATES. And as far as I know Kyle is NEVER rude!! Let's make that VERY CLEAR!!
Websites and services based on Web 2.0 concepts—blogging and interactive online communities, for example—have impacted the affiliate marketing world as well. These platforms allow improved communication between merchants and affiliates. Web 2.0 platforms have also opened affiliate marketing channels to personal bloggers, writers, and independent website owners. Contextual ads allow publishers with lower levels of web traffic to place affiliate ads on websites.[citation needed]
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.

It doesn't teach you how to get on the first page of Google at all. That's a huge part of affiliate marketing. What good is it to have a well-built site if nobody sees it? No, it doesn't teach how to run ads either. It just teaches you how to look for niches, find keywords, and build a website. I had high hopes for this course but was disappointed after joining.

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....

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.
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.
A. Different companies and networks online offer different ways of payment. For example if you are an affiliate of Amazon, they will pay you out through a check, gift card or a direct bank deposit. Some companies prefer to pay you by PayPal while other might go a different route. If you want to know how a company pays out the commission you can simply do a Google search on their affiliate program.

Once you start going through the training and get some content on your site you will be presented with the opportunity to submit your website to the community and have as many members as you want to provide you with some valuable feedback. Updating the content on your site may seem difficult at first, but you’ll find that this will get easier the more you do it.

I agree that the internet can be a scary place when it comes to trying to find a legit place to learn how to make money online. It doesn’t matter if you have never touched a computer in your whole life or how old you are. If you can follow simple directions and have a determination to learn everything you can about Internet marketing, It will be impossible for you to fail. If I can learn this, I know that anyone can and I would love to take you by the hand and show you how to get started.
I already opened my free account. I should be under you. Once I get going with my website or sites will I be required to recruit people to WA? Do you simply make money from what you learned at WA or is it a combination of your sites and recruiting for WA? With my schedule I may only be able to get in 6-8 hours a week on training and For someone as dumb as me, how long do you think it will take before I start to see a few dollars coming from this? I most likely am going to become a premium member, I just want to feel totally comfortable before I take that step. Thanks for your help. Also, where do I search for you on the WA site?
Any amount of time you can spare developing your business is better than nothing. A lot of folks do this business part-time and make a decent income. There’s definitely effort and focus needed in the beginning, but maybe not as much as you think. There’s no cold calling, or direct sales, unlike other online businesses, there’s just a bit of learning and implementing what you learn.
Affiliate marketing overlaps with other Internet marketing methods to some degree, because affiliates often use regular advertising methods. Those methods include organic search engine optimization (SEO), paid search engine marketing (PPC – Pay Per Click), e-mail marketing, content marketing, and (in some sense) display advertising. On the other hand, affiliates sometimes use less orthodox techniques, such as publishing reviews of products or services offered by a partner.[citation needed]
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. 
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’m glad you were able to find me and that my review of WA has helped you out. Here’s the basic rundown of how you get compensated for being an affiliate for any company out there in the online world. First you are going to need a website (You get 2 Free websites when you join WA) In order to receive monetary compensation from any company (or one that sells health care products in your case) you need to sign up for their affiliate program which is Free.

In 2 short months you would still be in your initial training period, so I don’t see how you can honestly say you found no use for it after 2 months. You need to slow down and take your time when you are going through the courses. That’s why most people fail online because they go through the courses to fast and they miss out on lots of valuable info.


Thanks for your reply. Some of my interests are movies, sing, dance, chat, read, travel(haven’t done much), read, watching tv, electronics, computer, games, social media, sports, food, health, money, business and more. Some interests I like more than others. I know that was too broad of an answer. If possible, I’d like to write about as much of my interests as possible. I think I asked all I could think of. Anything else I haven’t asked that you think I should know about, being a newbie and all?

If the above locations do not yield information pertaining to affiliates, it may be the case that there exists a non-public affiliate program. Utilizing one of the common website correlation methods may provide clues about the affiliate network. The most definitive method for finding this information is to contact the website owner directly if a contact method can be located.
Thank you for the article! You really provided a fair explanation of how Wealthy Affiliate works. Since this is simply a guide on how to successfully create and run your online business, am I allowed to cancel my membership after a period of time? I know that you said that there’s no limitation to cancelling my subscription, but what would be the benefit to continuing as a member even after I have learned all I needed and I’m successful in my business? What will I be losing if I opted to cancel after I’ve been successful? I’m just trying to learn if they (the founders of Wealthy Affiliate) expect people to pay the monthly or yearly fee forever or until they’ve acquired the success they desire. I look forward to your response!
2 - This is not just for beginners on the internet. There are a large amount of marketers that joined to learn more and love it. So the coaxing part you mentioned.... not really there. You can stay a free member but you just don't get the info that premium members get. You seemed to be outraged about that. Well how about you give your services away to anyone that does not want to pay and then charge the ones that think it's worth it. How soon before you are called out and you have no business at all. So that complaint is just non-sense. 
As a general best practice, you should always aim to create valuable and engaging content for your visitors – whether it’s a blog post, video, or email. This helps them trust you, and shows that you’re a reliable source for information. When you do that regularly, it becomes a lot easier to start promoting a product or service as part of an affiliate marketing program.
Hello I came across your web site while i was doing some research. I did read the whole thing. All i have to say is you really nailed it. I have been with wealthy affiliate since Sept 2017 and love it. This place is 100% honest. Not like the scamers that promise big bucks and then leave. And with the changes that Kyle and Carson have showed us that are coming it makes all the better.
