Hi Scott!Read all the questions & your sincere replies to each of them. I like your patient & caring attitude. I am free member at WA, but haven’t gone past the self profiling & 1st lesson. Reason: being employed doesn’t give me much free time for online learning..not that, having sufficient time to learn would make me an expert, as my ‘Net’ worthiness comes to nearly nothing..yes just web browsing, emailing & stuff like that. Much as I would like to be a Premier member to become very Net savvy with its technicalities, I doubt my own abilities at my age(yes i am 50)to do online business as an affiliate. But affiliate is what i want to be in future. So, Scott advise me.
There’s No catches or ANY risk involved whatsoever. You can get started for Free like I said above, and you’ll get the chance to see what you will be doing and if this is something you would be interested in making a career out of. You’ll also be able to check out everything they have to offer and then make the decision as to whether you would like to invest in their advanced premium training. I will also be there to help you every step of the way and answer any questions you may have for me. If there is something you don’t understand I will be there to explain it to you.
Individual sellers and companies offering products or services have to deal with their consumers and ensure they are satisfied with what they have purchased. Thanks to the affiliate marketing structure, you’ll never have to be concerned with customer support or customer satisfaction. The entire job of the affiliate marketer is to link the seller with the consumer. The seller deals with any consumer complaints after you receive your commission from the sale.
What kind of commission do they offer? One-time commissions or recurring commissions? For example, many programs pay you one time for sending a customer. On the other hand, some programs like membership sites or SaaS (software as a service) programs will pay you a commission as long as the person you referred is a paying customer. Recurring commissions are great when you can find them! Wealthy Affiliate Review: A Skeptic no More! See my Results.
Wealthy Affiliate is an outstanding platform to learn how to build an online business. Kyle and Carson are extremely helpful and caring. They have built a comprehensive community that is dedicated to helping people build online businesses from the ground up. Wealthy Affiliate is the real deal. If you want to learn how build an online business, WA is the best place to learn. It's also extremely affordable.
Cost per action/sale methods require that referred visitors do more than visit the advertiser's website before the affiliate receives a commission. The advertiser must convert that visitor first. It is in the best interest of the affiliate to send the most closely targeted traffic to the advertiser as possible to increase the chance of a conversion. The risk and loss are shared between the affiliate and the advertiser.

I have several blogs promoting all different products. The hardest thing I find about affiliate marketing is that once you’ve sold someone something you need to find a new product to sell them. I’ve found that promoting a subscription service where you sign up a customer is a great way to go. This way every time they renew or buy something you get paid. You only have to sell them this once.


I think you have some really ambitious goals and I know that you can reach these goals with lots of hard work and dedication. Since you are already with a marketing company and have 5 or 6 mini websites then this will give you a headstart above everyone else. The training at Wealthy Affiliate will walk you through the process of how to generate traffic and how to convert it into sales.

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)

5 - You last paragraph would be great if you DID actually make points in the rest of your complaint. The only REAL point you made was subliminal. You proved you were out to get something for free. You were not listening to the promo information and you would not go thru the training. So you don't have to be a member but it looks like it was not for you. 
Websites consisting mostly of affiliate links have previously held a negative reputation for underdelivering quality content. In 2005 there were active changes made by Google, where certain websites were labeled as "thin affiliates".[29] Such websites were either removed from Google's index or were relocated within the results page (i.e., moved from the top-most results to a lower position). To avoid this categorization, affiliate marketer webmasters must create quality content on their websites that distinguishes their work from the work of spammers or banner farms, which only contain links leading to merchant sites.
Once you've protected your prospecting pool, maximize your affiliate program by working with the best and leaving the rest. As the old 80/20 adage implies, most of your revenue will come from a very small percentage of your affiliates. Because it can be time-consuming to manage a larger affiliate network, consider selecting only a few companies initially, and interview them before signing them on. Affiliates are an extension of your sales force and represent your online brand, so choose partners carefully.
Ask for VIP (sometimes called “tiered”) commissions. Many affiliate programs have different commission levels. Usually the standard commission level is made public, but higher commissions are offered to higher performing affiliates. Sometimes you may be bumped up to “VIP affiliate” status by the advertiser, but most times you have to ask if there’s a higher tier and how you can get there.
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.
Nathaniell, Tasena here from WA!! Quick question. I dont have the $$ at the moment to renew my premium subscription can I seriously not revert back to the free account for now so I can continue my training? I am very disappointed in the lack of support when you are on the no paying side after being a premium member. It’s like you’re completely cut off. There isn’t even a way to ask a question or get help for my type of question without having to pay $49.00. Please let me know. I’d hate to lose all my work over $49.00. Thanks,
I am a Wealthy Affiliate member and I can honestly tell you this review is fantastic. I love the fact that you are upfront about this not being a get rich quick scheme. I think it is so important for people to know that they will get out of it what they put into it. There are a lot of resources available, including the training, and just a lot of very knowledgeable people. There are webinars, live chat, support. It’s up to the individual as to how much effort they are going to put into building a website with quality content. This review is very thorough and I don’t think you left any stone unturned. I also love to see that you are willing to share your income so people can see this works. Thanks for sharing, you definitely motivated me to get to work!
The concept of affiliate marketing on the Internet was conceived of, put into practice and patented by William J. Tobin, the founder of PC Flowers & Gifts. Launched on the Prodigy Network in 1989, PC Flowers & Gifts remained on the service until 1996. By 1993, PC Flowers & Gifts generated sales in excess of $6 million per year on the Prodigy service. In 1998, PC Flowers and Gifts developed the business model of paying a commission on sales to the Prodigy Network.[3][4]
Thanks for stopping by. As regards your question, unfortunately this is not a get rich quick scheme. It’s probable that you don’t see any earnings on your first months. You will need to invest time building your site from scratch: this means publishing good articles, creating a nice layout, etc. If you want to accelerate the process you can outsource your content and SEO but that will cost you more money.
If anyone is claiming Wealthy Affiliate is a scam, I'm going to guess it's because of one of the following reasons: they are trying to convince you to join a different program or they didn't have success with Wealthy Affiliate. Being a successful affiliate is going to require you to roll up your sleeves and put in some hours. Nobody said it would be easy, and if they did they're lying to you.
I have just talked to Kyle(Co owner of WA) and he said that India is one of the countries where the starter membership isn’t available. The only other option would be if you could select a different country and try to join that way. If that doesn’t work then you would need to go premium from the start. You can get your first month at a highly discounted rate of only $19 for your first month.

First of all, Wealthy Affiliate does not claim to “make you money” free or otherwise. WA is not a PTC or a system of any sort, it’s a reputable educational platform which also gives you access to a community of like-minded people, support and needed tools such as hosting and many others. Wealthy Affiliate has been growing for the past 11 years and there is a reason for it 😉
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.
How much you get paid would depend on how many sales you made for the month and how much commission the merchant is currently paying. When you get to the point where you start making sales, then you would be paid on a monthly basis. Also, the more traffic you have coming to your site would also play a factor in how much money you would initially make.
I will be getting in contact with you within 60 minutes of you joining to make sure you are finding your way around the community and answer any questions you may have. I am looking forward to working with you Maria and I hope this has answered all of your questions. Thanks so much for stopping by and if you have anymore questions let me know and I would be glad to answer them for you.
Once you get ranked and start getting some traffic to your site you’ll have lots of ways you can earn money from it and this is what you’re going to learn at WA. I will be here to help you out every step of the way and answer any questions you may have.

I would suggest that you get started by creating your FREE account by clicking on the “Become A Member” button above.

I hope this has answered your questions and if you have anymore questions please let me know and I would be more then happy to answer them for you and help you out.
This was, by far, the most detailed and thorough review of Wealthy Affiliate I have ever read. Personally, I have been with Wealthy Affiliate for more than two years. I spent nearly six months loitering on the free starter membership before jumping into premium and then, of course, on to yearly premium. In hindsight, I wish I had jumped in much sooner. 
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.

24/7 Live Chat- Got a burning question that you need an instant answer to? No matter what time of the day or night it is there is always someone in live chat who will be there to answer your questions (Even at 4 in the morning) As a matter of fact, the owners Kyle and Carson are in chat several times daily to answer any questions or issues you may have.
After completing the first 10 lessons of the “Getting Started” course — which took me about 7 days, since I had other projects to take care of — I saw that I was being offered a 59% discount on the first month if I decided to buy the Premium membership, before a countdown timer reached zero. (In fact, since I got in, I was given 7 days — not minutes, or hours -– to decide; this was nothing like those “act right now or you’ll never see this again” pressure marketing strategy).
The community is positive and I see help being offered 24/7 at least she tried to help you. With that statment the readers will know we try to help with every question asked. The program is built around helping real people build a real business I am a member and I could say Im not dumb for becomming one. I Have been around  the online marketing business for eight years.
This support will be by email or personal message or whatever way you are most comfortable with just let me know. If you haven’t already done so I would encourage you to sign up for your Free account and fill out your profile by adding a image and description. I will be getting in touch with you shortly after that to guide you in the right direction. i look forward to working with you Dennis and if you have anymore questions please let me know.

Another positive point is that Wealthy Affiliate can help to minimise some of your technical expenses as they provide a hosting service for 25 domains, email addresses specific to your domain, and a light keyword research tool called Jaaxy. The combined total of these expenses for just one website can easily reach $20/mth (For reference, an email address tied to your domain costs $5/mth per account on Google Business Suite while the equivalent hosting in terms of speed/space can cost $12/mth on hosts such as Siteground and Bluehost).


Take advantage of affiliate program freebies when available. Many affiliate programs provide free printables, guides, webinars or other lead magnets designed to get potential customers in their sales funnel. As an affiliate, you can share these freebies with your audience using your affiliate link so if they eventually make a purchase, you’ll earn a commission, but if they don’t they still get value upfront.
Hello Jack. I trust all is well with you. Please help me with a question I have. I would like to join wealthy affiliate after reading about your experiences with said company. I am new and know nothing about this business venture. I think, if I am correct being an affiliate is you are selling something on-line to the on-line public. And then you receive a commission for your sale. What I would like to know is after joining WA and studying their programs, you are set up and ready to go, where do you go to find products to promote and sell? And how do you know what products to promote? Is it like guessing , such as I think this product sounds like it ought to sell well and so on… please answer this one question. T hanks Jack. Have a good day I reside in Vancouver, British Columbia CANADA.
Actually I’m writing this comment to ask you how do I join (to premium) wealthy affiliate through your affiliate link? I tried to find it from your article but can’t find it. Please let me know soonest because I’m currently on fire to start my empire with Wealthy Affiliate and I want my referral to be you as a credit of your beautiful writing on Wealthy Affiliate. 🙂
It also helps to think outside the box. Pinch of Yum long ago set up a blogging resources page, which talks about which host to go with, what sort of plugins you need to use, which theme to use, etc. Because some of these products are recurring (eg. hosting affiliate programs), this page continues to bring in money over time, long after someone makes the original purchase.
Hi Candice, This varies because everyone’s level of learning is different. If you are willing to spend at least an hour or two a day on this and you give it everything you got then I would say in a 6 months time you should be making money by that time. It is really hard to say how much you could be making but I would think any amount would be good. I will give you a little background into my experience when I first started doing this, I also had no experience whatsoever. I started this a little over a year ago and it took me a little longer to catch on then it does most people.
2nd tier.  If you are an affiliate for a particular program and you refer others to sign up for that affiliate program, a 2nd tier program will pay you when the affiliates you referred make sales. For example, I am an affiliate for Ultimate Bundles. If you join their affiliate program via my 2nd tier affiliate link here. I will get a small percentage of any sales you make going forward.
I would recommend that you sign up for your starter membership here and see what WA can do for you. I will also be there to help you out every step of the way and answer any questions you may have. If you have any other questions for me or need a hand getting started please let me know and I would be more than happy to answer your questions and help you out.
I would suggest that you get started by opening up your FREE starter account here so that you can check out everything WA has to offer you and you get the chance to experience for yourself how awesome WA really is without risking any money. If you like it and you would like to continue on in your training I would highly recommend that you upgrade to the premium membership as it has the most value.
Hi Scott I found your website and basically loved what I seen. I’m just having a few issues, when I try to sign up it says it already have an account (which I do not this is my very first time). But I still took the step as if I previously signed up before and then it said I don’t even have and account with you guys, which is what I figured, so I’m a little lost and its not letting me sign up at all. 🙁 Please Help
There are 2 options you have when you decide to join the premium membership at WA. You can get your first month at an unbelievable discount of only $19 for your first month if you sign up within your first 7 days. This is a savings of over 50% and this way you can try out everything that is offered at Wealthy Affiliate and get the foundation of your business up and running for under $20.
It’s actually $47 and as I have said below in my other comment. You can get your first month for only $19 and get complete access to the premium membership at this discounted price. The reason why there is a recurring fee is because each and every month you are going to be getting new training and updated courses about how to start a business online. This is a subscription website and you are going to be trained on how to make money online. It is also an online college and you are paying for an education but at a much discounted price.
