Warrior Forum WSO’s – This is the only option on the list I will actually tell you to stay away from. Warrior Forum WSO’s are almost always a rip-off and no amount of them will adequately teach you how to truly build a real online business. This forum community is owned by Freelancer.com and they will allow just about anyone to sell just about anything. The majority of them are very cheap, but once you give them your email address, get ready to be spammed. They also almost always include “upsells” where the initial product may only cost a few bucks, but all the other products they sell you within the first product costs substantially more. I could write all day about why you should never purchase a Warrior Forum WSO, but if you want to learn more, you can read my article about Warrior Forum WSO’s here.
I’m glad you have found my review of WA to be helpful and let me take a few minutes to answer your questions about WA. When you join WA you will be learning how to build your own online business. You do this by choosing something you’re interested in or a hobby of yours and building a website around this hobby. There’s in depth training and task based lessons that walk you through everything from choosing products that are related to your interests to showing you how to apply to companies like Amazon, Target, Best Buy and many other top retailers online that sell these products.
One observation I would like to make – When I read WA member comments about being discouraged or that WA is a scam/rip-off. Do you know what I found these folks have in common? They haven’t bothered to go through the training courses. They try to hurry from point A to point Z, overnight. They do not have reasonable expectations. They lack the ability to have perseverance. They have more excuses than goals and they want something for little to no work or investment.
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.
Building trust with your audience is paramount in affiliate marketing, and the quickest way to lose trust is to recommend products either you haven’t used before or that aren’t a good fit for your audience. Also make sure you never tell anyone to directly buy a product, you are simply recommending the product. The more helpful you are and the more you make quality recommendations, the more likely your web visitors will come back for your expertise. 
The only other things I didn't like about OMG Machines is that the course is super disorganized, they promote tons of other programs, and one of their coaches berated me several times for asking what he considered to be stupid questions. The funny part is, he misread my question and went on the berate me about how I'll never be successful because I don't pay attention to detail. How ironic lol.
Contact the company directly. If you use a product or service and want to recommend it but you can’t find evidence of an affiliate program, consider approaching them and asking if they are willing to set one up (maybe with your help). Highlight your audience and the value of your recommendation. Explain that an affiliate program is simply rewarding happy customers (you!) for promoting, and they don’t have to pay until a sale is made.
A: No, You don’t! Wealthy Affiliate does provide an amazing affiliate program but you aren’t obliged to promote it to make money. Unlike MLMs and other “business opportunities” WA will never force you to annoy your friends and family by trying to push them into your “downline”. WA is mostly about teaching you how to set-up a real online business where you could sell any service or product that you can find in stores or online.
The way I understand it, it is best to join WA if one has a business to promote. The business should ideally be one that he is passionate about or in line with his own interest. He can then use the knowledge and technology learned from WA to build a website concerning his product or service, drive traffic to the website and hopefully, generate sales from his visitors.
If you haven’t done so already I would get started by signing up for your FREE account by clicking on the “Become A Member” button above, fill out a few details and you are in. I will be getting in contact with you within your first hour to see how things are going for you and to answer any additional questions you may have getting started. I really am looking forward to working with you Adam and helping you build a business that you will be proud of.
This is the standard affiliate marketing structure. In this program, the merchant pays the affiliate a percentage of the sale price of the product after the consumer purchases the product as a result of the affiliate’s marketing strategies. In other words, the affiliate must actually get the investor to invest in the product before they are compensated.
IF this is correct, I happen to disagree, personally (about Network Marketing being a poor choice) – and hence, I would be reluctant to bring fellow Network Marketers into WA. I am associated with an MLM (a Natural Health & Wellness company), and I see a great many aspects within WA that would “support” building an MLM / Network Marketing biz via their superb Educational Marketing Platform — “as well as” — building a successful AFFILIATE business. In other words, being a ‘combo’ Inter-Network Marketer / Affiliate Marketer.
You would bypass all of that and you would be able to focus on building review pages and how to increase your conversion rate. I would say that you should count on spending a good 90 days building your site before you will see any real results. This is going to involve lots of hard work and by no means will this be an easy task. If you go through the training lessons this will be broken down into easy to understand segments.
If you’re on the same IP address as someone that has an account then this could be the reason why you’re getting this error msg. If this isn’t the case then I would send Kyle (Co-Owner Of WA) an email notifying him of this issue at Kyle@Wealthyaffiliate.com I will also send him an email and he will look into it and set you up with your own account.
1.When you join their affiliate program you will be given your very own affiliate id which is called your affiliate link. You will need to put this link on your website. When someone clicks on your affiliate link on your site to Microsofts website, this will install a cookie on their computer which is what is used to track where people are coming from.
When I first joined WA I had no idea what I was getting myself into at the time. I just followed the training and when there was something I didn’t understand I would ask questions. You don’t need to have your own products to sell and that is the beauty of affiliate marketing. You can be an affiliate for big name companies like Amazon, Wal-mart, and Ebay. You decide which products you want to promote on your website from these vendors.
A browser extension is a plug-in that extends the functionality of a web browser. Some extensions are authored using web technologies such as HTML, JavaScript, and CSS. Most modern web browsers have a whole slew of third-party extensions available for download. In recent years, there has been a constant rise in the number of malicious browser extensions flooding the web. Malicious browser extensions will often appear to be legitimate as they seem to originate from vendor websites and come with glowing customer reviews.[27] In the case of affiliate marketing, these malicious extensions are often used to redirect a user’s browser to send fake clicks to websites that are supposedly part of legitimate affiliate marketing programs. Typically, users are completely unaware this is happening other than their browser performance slowing down. Websites end up paying for fake traffic number, and users are unwitting participants in these ad schemes.

For starters they make no promises that what you will learn will be able to work on a regular site. The premise behind what they do is based on how blog-style sites work and generate traffic. Yes they do this in a completely different method. You can get traffic easier in a blog than with your web site. But since you "know what you are doing" already, you must have known that. 


Forms of new media have also diversified how companies, brands, and ad networks serve ads to visitors. For instance, YouTube allows video-makers to embed advertisements through Google's affiliate network.[17][18] New developments have made it more difficult for unscrupulous affiliates to make money. Emerging black sheep are detected and made known to the affiliate marketing community with much greater speed and efficiency.[citation needed]
A. There could be several reason for this error. You might have already created an account in the past and you forgot about it. Someone might have created an account using your email address. Someone might have created a account using your IP (internet connection in your house) and WA thinks it might be a duplicate account. Since I do not own Wealthy Affiliate I cannot help you with this. You can contact WA support directly and see how they can help you out.
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.
You could definitely use this as a starting point and take the knowledge you already have about outdoor water sports and expand on it. There are many different things you could discuss on your website. If there’s something you don’t know that much about you can always do research on the topic and have more then enough information to write about it. If you can help other people out in this niche(Topic) you can turn this into a full time business that makes full time money.

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!?)
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.

I have been researching Affiliate Marketing for a while now, but I got confused each time I read new article on the subject. I was hoping to get more confused when I started reading this write up, but instead it explained to me in clear terms, the meaning of Affiliate Marketing. I can say that the foundation for leaning the subject has just been laid in my mind.
I think you did a great job with this review of Wealthy Affiliate. You pretty much covered everything but what I like the most about your review is how you included not only your own testimonial but also those of other successful Wealthy Affiliates who are making money online. This just goes to show that you can really make money online by applying the training and lessons taught by WA.

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!!:
And what about joining another company's affiliate program? It's all about extra revenue. Think about your customers' needs: What other products or services would interest your site visitors? Join those affiliate programs. Affiliate programs can increase your sales with no upfront cost to you. It just takes a little time to plan your strategy and select the partners that will have the greatest impact on your business.

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).
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.
Designed to create a huge amount of traffic at all times, these sites focus on building an audience of millions. These websites promote products to their massive audience through the use of banners and contextual links. This method offers superior exposure and improves conversion rates, resulting in a top-notch revenue for both the seller and the affiliate.
I just finished your excellent info re WA and you have answered nearly every question I had. Thank you so very much for your thorough explanation without the “get rich quick” blather of all the MLM sites. I too have been conned by MLM and was ready to give up. I am a retired marketing person with newspaper advertising background and feel I will enjoy WA and it’s valuable ongoing education. I want to supplement my limited budget but do not expect to make exorbitant amounts of 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.
The only other things I didn't like about OMG Machines is that the course is super disorganized, they promote tons of other programs, and one of their coaches berated me several times for asking what he considered to be stupid questions. The funny part is, he misread my question and went on the berate me about how I'll never be successful because I don't pay attention to detail. How ironic lol.

Will my target audience realistically buy this now, or at a different time? Be sensitive to sales cycles and seasons. Maybe you should avoid holidays (when people are away from their computers, like July 4 in the U.S.) or maybe you should target holidays (like the day after Thanksgiving), but know the difference. Again, know your audience. Plan your content accordingly.


The best part about Affiliate U is the guy who runs it is a hustler. He has a no BS attitude, rolls up his sleeves, and gets sh*t done. The worst part is, he's always hustling so he doesn't have time to focus on the course. The course seems more like a side project than a central focus of the owner. I like hearing him speak and like reading his Facebook posts. They're motivational and his attitude is awesome. But the course itself is lacking some of the essentials.

Affiliate marketing is commonly confused with referral marketing, as both forms of marketing use third parties to drive sales to the retailer. The two forms of marketing are differentiated, however, in how they drive sales, where affiliate marketing relies purely on financial motivations, while referral marketing relies more on trust and personal relationships.[citation needed]
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.
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.
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?
Some people are able to start making money in a few months while others it takes longer then that. I would say if you gave yourself a year and you worked on this at least an hour a day like you said that you could, then you could be making a full time living in that time. If you are willing to put the work in and take action on what you have learned then you could reach your goal before a year. I know that you can do this and you will have me there to help you out as well if you ever get stuck or don’t understand something. I do this full time and make a living off it so I am here pretty much all the time.

Thanks for all the information I am slowly working my way through your list of do’s and donts! ! I’ve been approached by a website that wants to develop editorial content for my blog featuring home improvement tips from their”national client” and pay me $40 a year for reviewing and publishing their content. Boy, I am just not sure how this all works? Any words for when we are approached by others to write for our blogs?
Personally, for me I was able to reach this goal in only 10 short months and my income continues to grow every month. I would suggest that you get the ball rolling by signing up for your FREE account here. Once you have opened your account you should get started by setting up your profile by adding a pic of yourself or using one of the ones WA provides you with. After that, you should write a little something in your description so that the community can get to know you better and offer you the most help.
Unfortunately, I am not acquainted with Indian Tax law, so I am not able to advice you on this. But, I would presume that if you earn income from affiliate marketing, your profit from the business will be tax under your personal income. That is unless you create a company to run the operation, then it will be subject to corporate tax, and the dividends receive from the company will be subject to your local personal tax.
How many months/years did it take you to make your first $1000 at WA? What is a good niche to choose initially? Do money making/home business blogs make the most money? And is it advisable for a newbie to start at WA with a money making blog? Other than paying for the wealthy affiliate yearly membership, how much does one have to pay for other things like web hosting, autoresponder, themes, domain name etc? eg how much would you have spent on this website other than what you pay to WA?Is this site hosted by WA? If I already have a website-does it still help to join WA?
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.
