So it begs the question – I would love to work from a laptop anywhere in the world with good internet , but how on earth do I get started when I have no business idea? I feel lost as all my life i’ve been an accountant but pretty ‘clued up’. I love ‘hustling’ – buying and reselling stuff i find on the cheap, and I always felt an entrepreneurial streak as I love burning the midnight oil when it’s my own work. I’m real sick of the corporate life and am about to finish up at my job after being ‘shafted’ on the probation period (told i was great, good, then suddenly now it was extended and i’m terrible, don’t fit in etc. etc). I really just want to shove it at life and work for myself but what always holds me back isn’t so much going for a course or learning how to do things – but I just don’t know what idea/niche I want to pursue! I just have confidence and am curious about my entrepreneurial streak and ability to push forward – except I don’t have a guiding idea or business/niche in mind? Any advice/help? I haven’t seen your online business yet, so I am not sure what your online business sells – but I arrived here when googling your direct wines review on scams… again another attempt at seeing if I could ‘work for myself’. but alas another one of those get rich quick schemes that get rich off your back more like it.
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.
I stumbled to this site as I was attempting to get even more information about a company that you seem to know by name all too well AmeriPlan. For me from the first contact from that company there was something in my head already telling me that this company was not for me, however it ALMOST seemed to me that they wanted you to do reseach on them since they claim to have a good review with the BBB. So with lack of my better judgement I put those feelings aside and put more of my time in doing some research on them. I went to the BBB site, and saw nothing but not so good all the way to simply terrible reviews there. At that point (which was approximately 2 weeks ago) I knew that that this company was just not a good fit for me. The emails kept coming, and to be honest I wrote them off, however did not advise them that I was not interested yet. Today I was planning to do just that simply respond to the emails and let them know, but before I completed that for some reason I decided to google their name review. I am the type of person that always beleives that everything happens for a reason, now so here I am on your page. I know this has been very long, but I wanted you to know how and where I came from. What you guys are doing here seems VERY interesting! I am not looking for some kind of get rich quick scheme that is simply not going to happen. When something sounds to good to be true it is, or illegal. I have 3 questions for you if you could answer if not well like I said earlier everything happens for a reason. Do you need to have GREAT writing skills? Social studies and Language was not my best subjects in school nor were they the worest just in the middle. I am not a gamer, I do not have hobbies such as fishing, golf, etc. How do people or did you figure out what was a good subject for a website? Lastly the handful of things that I am very interested about is completely overloaded in the “YouTube” community with so much of what I enjoy overloaded in the YouTube world do you think that a website would stand a chance against those guru’s of YouTube?
Online affiliate marketing is wide open. You can write about or promote whatever you want! However, the incredible amount of possibilities can be overwhelming, and that leaves a lot of people saying that they don't have any good ideas. There are literally hundreds of comments below saying “I don't know which topic to pick”, or “I don't have any hobbies so what should I do?”.
Affiliate marketing has grown quickly since its inception. The e-commerce website, viewed as a marketing toy in the early days of the Internet, became an integrated part of the overall business plan and in some cases grew to a bigger business than the existing offline business. According to one report, the total sales amount generated through affiliate networks in 2006 was £2.16 billion in the United Kingdom alone. The estimates were £1.35 billion in sales in 2005.[14] MarketingSherpa's research team estimated that, in 2006, affiliates worldwide earned US$6.5 billion in bounty and commissions from a variety of sources in retail, personal finance, gaming and gambling, travel, telecom, education, publishing, and forms of lead generation other than contextual advertising programs.[15]
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. 
Although there is no exact answer to this question I can tell you this: The amount of money you can earn is directly related to what you do and how you do it. The folks who are highly successful have one thing in common – they followed the training to the dot and they took massive action. Learning how to do something is great but you need to apply this knowledge in order to actually start earning.
If you would like to take a more subtle approach, include a product or service from your company that relates into your blog post. For example, let’s say that you are a wine connoisseur and that is what your blog is based around. In any post that is enticing your readers to open up a good bottle of Merlot or what have you, it would be wise to embed an ad for a quality, easy-to-use wine opener, wine glasses or stoppers that keep the wine fresh.
Hi Alex, Thanks for the great review of Wealthy Affiliate. I was doing some research for months whether to join or not. Now, I finally decided to join. I will join with your affiliate link. I will also definitely join premium membership. BUT, before I join I want you to answer me one question. Here is my case, I am from Ethiopia where there is no international banking or card, and PayPal is not functional either. But I find a way to get a master card from Payoneer(international MasterCard provider). Also I managed to load my card with $104 from fiverr. That’s all I got. This will cover 2 months of my premium membership fees. So my question is: From training I got from WA will I get $100 with the end of 2nd month to cover my 3rd and 4th month fees? (considering I will work to my maximum potential and my niche will be new trendy topic.)
I openly disclose the fact that I will receive a small affiliate commission if someone decides to join WA Premium using one of my affiliate link. There is no compensation for starter members. I often tell people that they are free to join WA without using my link but I encourage them to do so if they liked my review and the effort I put into explaining what it is and what it does. If someone thinks I don’t deserve being compensated, they can join directly through WA main site, without using my links, no hard feelings. The goal here is to answer all the questions about WA.
Wealthy Affiliate does concentrate on production of high quality content which in my opinion is the MOST important part of SEO and has always been. Learning “SEO tricks” is not a good idea as most of these things are temporary. However proper SEO (great and consistent content) is not a secret but a good way to get ranked. The websites where I produced high quality content are all ranking well and have been for many years. I am fairly sure it’ll stay that way.
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!!
I came across WA after looking into AmeriPlan, as I can see many across the board have also done. I am familiar with Affiliate Marketing, and even bought a kit from another company off a late night television promo many years ago, that I have yet to do anything with. The lure of making money online is pretty intriguing, but do have some questions/concerns I am hoping you can help answer. How do income taxes work with this company? Does WA take care of any of that, or would I be considered an independant contractor, or something similar? I will admit that taxes have been one of the major reasons stopping me over the years from doing a home based business. Also, I enjoy a lot of manly, & even not so manly things. I worry it would be difficult to narrow down a true profitable target audience. My passions include ATV’s, side by sides, products used in this sport, etc. Essential Oils, weightloss (I have lost 185 lbs), food, hunting, fishing, trucks, knives, music, toys, religeous items, survival tools, flash lights, and quite a bit more. What have you personally seen be the most profitable over the years? I have many passions, drives, and loves, that I could truly write about for years to come. Thanks so much for your help!
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.

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]

A: Wealthy Affiliate teaches you how to build on online business. You can certainly learn how to create and sell your own product. However, WA will also teach you how to make money by simply promoting other people’s products! You can work with such giants as Amazon, Walmart, Apple and many others and earn commissions on products these companies already sell. How cool is that?


Every niche can be profitable, it all depends on how you approach it and whether you narrow it down enough or not. I have gone into a niche when I first started that was extremely too broad. I ended up making nothing at all with it due to the simple fact that I didn’t narrow it down enough and focus on finding my targeted audience. If you don’t target the audience that is looking for what you are offering within your niche then naturally it’s not going to be profitable.


Ok so I’ll bite. Tell me why someome that searches for any kind of product wouldn’t just go to the direct supplier rather than filtering through a long winded site to eventually click on an affiate link? If one happens to fall upon someones website as result of a search word only to discover an implanted link takes them to the actual seller, what keeps them from exiting their website and then going directly to the actual seller’s site, such as Amazon for one? I do this all the time.

Anyone can succeed in this business, no matter what your age is or if you are tech savvy or not. When I started here close to 3 years ago I had absolutely no idea how to build websites and I had never even heard of Internet marketing before. I just knew I was sick of living paycheck to paycheck and never being fulfilled in what I was doing for a living.
I am a student. I have a goal of making about $100,000-$200,000(+)/year within the next 2/3 years with multiple income streams. I already am with an marketing company and they have given me 5/6 mini websites. But I want to have as much income streams as possible in other niches, along with the online business I have already. I have some idea about generating traffic to my mini websites, but I want to know how to convert the traffics into sales and leads. Do You think that’s possible if I join with wealthy affiliate? I am not really looking for money right now, just something that I can legitimately built up within 2/3 years of time. Also I noticed the WA premium membership allows upto 25 website domain or unlimited free websites; I am not sure. do I have to buy each of the domains if I sign up as a premium member? Also, in your opinion, how many articles minimum should an website on WA have to have good ranking? I am a total novice in article writing for business purposes and website building. Please let me know. Thanks!
…and the list goes on! The main thing to keep in mind is that your first website doesn't have to be perfect. It doesn't have to be a home run with your first try. I started three or four failed websites before I really got into the groove and picked a topic that worked for me. My very first websites was about horse care, and it didn't last long. My first successful website was about computer software!

I would also like to see a forum built into the platform. Wealthy Affiliate has a unique way of building a community and I understand why they shy away from a standard forum type of format. Instead, they want to promote live chat sessions, blog posts, private messaging, and public questions where people can comment below. This type of setup is pretty cool at times, but I also do enjoy forums where I can just browse by topic.
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.
