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.

If you’re including affiliate links in your post, you’ll also want to include a disclosure so your readers know that you’ll earn a commission off of their purchase. If you’d like, you can set this up with Tasty Links so that a disclosure either follows each link or is inserted above your post content! Here’s an example of a blanket disclosure on Pinch of Yum:
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.

hmm. . . i am kind of new to online business and i got redirected to this post from your WARDCOPYCAT post. i read through and was developing interest until i got to the place where you listed countries not accepted and my country happened to be number on the list. That was heart breaking though. . . But still great job here keep it up. i will just keep searching for the right online job to do that accept my country.
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.
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.
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’m signing up!!! I swore I would find a solution and I’ve been hunting and trying all sorts of programs that did not work out for me or were scams, and I’ve spent the past two years….two YEARS…trying to figure this out because it’s a matter of survival for me and so I’m not ready to give up all that energy and time spent…there has to be something out there that is the right fit for me. I’ve lost many friends and family connections due to this journey so I’m gonna give this a shot and prove to everyone and myself that there is a way!
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.

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!

Affiliate marketers usually choose between a resource site and a review site for the type of content they intend to provide for their readers. A resource site contains all the information about products related to the industry and needs to be updated regularly so that it is top-of-mind for the customers. You post articles that generally talk about the industry, give overviews of new launches, talks about the changes in the industries, post how-to articles, and more.


Two-tier programs exist in the minority of affiliate programs; most are simply one-tier. Referral programs beyond two-tier resemble multi-level marketing (MLM) or network marketing but are different: Multi-level marketing (MLM) or network marketing associations tend to have more complex commission requirements/qualifications than standard affiliate programs.[citation needed]
Great article, Zach. The one question I have is about hyperlinking the brand name with your affiliate link. Isn’t it a little annoying for the reader if the brand name is hyperlinked throughout the article? It may even seem obvious to the reader that the blog is promoting an affiliate product. In an article with 1000+ words, a brand name may be mentioned at least 10-15 times. Do you suggest hyperlinking the brand every time?
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.
Wealthy Affiliate is an amazing platform. I signed up for it a few months ago and I love the environment and appreciate the help from others. The good thing about WA is that no one ever tells you that success comes overnight. You have to work hard to earn your spot in the online world. Sticking to the training and showing passion and patience will lead you to success eventually.
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?
One of the reasons I like Wealthy Affiliate is because it enables me to provide this blog for free to people, but also be able to sell a genuinely high-quality product that I know is always updated and provides a better service than I ever could. Plus, when people sign up using my affiliate link, I can still provide one-on-one coaching and support as a way to add value and as a “thank you” for signing up using my link. Wealthy Affiliate truly is a win-win-win setup.
If you’re including affiliate links in your post, you’ll also want to include a disclosure so your readers know that you’ll earn a commission off of their purchase. If you’d like, you can set this up with Tasty Links so that a disclosure either follows each link or is inserted above your post content! Here’s an example of a blanket disclosure on Pinch of Yum:

If you really do want to take the cheap route you don’t even need your own domain name you can just use the free websites from WA and build your websites out on your own. To answer your question about transferring the domain, If you bought your own domain from Go daddy, Namecheap, or any other domain registrar and you had it hosted on WA as a premium member and decide to leave you have 30 days to transfer it to other hosting.
You don’t have to pay the $47 to make money, it is possible to make money using your free account. However, it will just be more of a challenge to do so. I would suggest that you sign up for your Free account, check out everything that is offered and go from there. There is a 59% discount to all new members which makes it only $19 for your first month, but that is totally up to you. There is no pressure to upgrade to premium at anytime.

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.


When I first started, it took me 2 hours during weekdays and 4 hours or more during weekends, and this schedule lasted for about 4 to 5 months. (That is till I got my first commission) Then now it is about 1 hour every weekday and 2 hours during weekends. Of course, I will work more if I have the time because I am passionate about my online business.


A: I get this question a lot! Unfortunately there is no answer to it. There are so many variables that it’s simply impossible to estimate the timeline of success. It all depends on your work ethics, your ability to take action, the industry (or niche) that you will create your business is, the amount of work you’re willing to put in and many many many other factors. I have seen people start making money with their online business in their first week, I have seen many others who took 6 months to see their first sale.
Promote products that are stepping stones to products you will create in the future. This is a bit more advanced, but is a great way to think ahead. Amy Porterfield suggests thinking about the first thing your followers will need in order to get started with what you provide. For example, I teach people how to blog, so the first thing they need to start a blog is hosting. That’s why I am an affiliate for hosting.

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?


In the case of cost per mille/click, the publisher is not concerned about whether a visitor is a member of the audience that the advertiser tries to attract and is able to convert, because at this point the publisher has already earned his commission. This leaves the greater, and, in case of cost per mille, the full risk and loss (if the visitor cannot be converted) to the advertiser.
I realize my bias is already showing through, so I’ll get to what I DON’T like about Wealthy Affiliate below. But, as I’ve already stated, overall I don’t know of any other place that is better for new affiliate marketers to get started than Wealthy Affiliate. If you take a look around my site, you’ll notice I’ve spent a TON of time on it. I’ve spent years of my life building this site, and there are currently almost 500 posts here, all for free, for everyone. It is in my best interest to promote only the best training course and that training course is Wealthy Affiliate.

Personally, I think everyone should do the free membership first. Why would you start off with a paid membership when you get some of the premium features during the first seven days? Not only that, but the Level 1 Entrepreneur course is included with the free membership. Since that's the first module that all members should complete, you might as well do it for free.


No matter how good your marketing skills are, you’ll make less money on a bad product than you will on a valuable one. Take the time to study the demand for a product before promoting it. Make sure to research the seller with care before teaming up. Your time is worth a lot, and you want to be sure you’re spending it on a product that is profitable and a seller you can believe in.
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. 

If you live in SE Asia there shouldn’t be no problem signing up for the starter membership at WA. This is a worldwide opportunity and it’s available to everyone. I would suggest going through the starter courses first, so that you can get a feel of what you will be doing at WA. After you have completed the starter training, and if you would like to continue your training, you can get your first month at an incredible savings of only $19 for your first month.
I will be there to help you out and answer any questions you may have prior to getting started. If you haven’t done so already I would suggest that you open your FREE account and spend a few minutes completing your profile with an image and description. I will be sending you a message within an hour of you joining to welcome you to the community and answer any questions you have.
Hey, a coworker at my part time job mentioned the ameriplan job and I’m still on the fence but I came across this website. Is there good money within the video games or cooking areas of this as those are my two main hobbies. I do have a jewelry business that I started on facebook but it’s not really going anywhere at the moment,however that is a hobby as well, so I was wondering about the video game or cooking areas of those are profitable or not? Also wondering about the pay rate is just compiled monthly or can you choose different timeframes based on traffic? Thanks 🙂
Once I get a better idea of what you are interested in I can help you narrow down your niche and get you started down the right path. You can write your websites in whatever language you want and the one that you are most comfortable with. Google will translate them into the language that people have selected as their primary language. This is called Google translate and you may have visited a site that was in another language and had a pop up come up asking if you would like to have this website translated into your language of choice.

Besides all of the training online at Wealthy Affiliate that you can get, you have access to lots of support from people who have already succeeded. One of the best parts of this program is you have access to working with highly successful individuals like yourself just by entering into a chat with them from your Dashboard. Anytime you need any help, just ask. When you work with successful people you are more likely to succeed yourself.
By all means take as much time as you need and go over the starter lessons as many times as you want. You can continue building out your website until you are ready to take things to the next level and upgrade to premium. What’s your username at WA so that I can look you up and did you sign up through me? I really am looking forward to working with you Carrl and helping you out in any way I can.

As a member of Wealthy Affiliate, I highly recommend it myself. I also agree that in order to derive benefit or results, one has to put in sufficient time and energy. But other than that, with the help of WA training and support, the sky’s pretty much the limit. One can have 0 traffic or 100,000 visitors per month depending on how well one follows the instructions or training. I admit I myself have previously not followed all the instructions closely and spent too much wasted time on things that don’t matter very much (at least not in early stage of game) such as obsessing over which WordPress template to use, but now I remind myself to stay on track more and follow instructions.
A review site, on the other hand, focuses more on reviews of products and services related to the industry. The advantage of these review sites is that people usually check out these websites when they intend to make a purchase, so the possibility of someone using your link to make a purchase is much higher. One more advantage of review websites is that you don’t have to post updates regularly, instead of waiting for product launches in your sector to be able to truly capture readers with reviews for a product they might want.
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. 🙂
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.
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.
I read this great review of yours about WA and decided to give it a try since I live in SE Asia and am earning barely the minimum wage in America. But after registering, I got a message that Free Starter accounts are not available in my country and I have to choose from either the $47 monthly plan or $359 yearly plan. Do you think this is a worthwhile investment as a part time thing? (Taking into consideration the fact that I am not really knowledgeable or skilled in marketing, not to mention online marketing)
