A: Wealthy Affiliate Premium is available to everyone and in every country. However, Wealthy Affiliate Free Membership is not available to 7 countries at the moment: Bangladesh, Egypt, India, Nigeria, Pakistan, Philippines, Vietnam. I do not own Wealthy Affiliate and I don’t know why this decision was made so I can’t offer any other details or support on this subject. If you live in one of these seven countries you can still join the premium membership of WA at any time at a regular price of $49 per month.
Instant and friendly help is something that will keep you moving in the right direction. You will not have to spend days searching for answers that don't quite fit what you are looking for, or hours scrolling through old forums and blog posts trying to figure out things by yourself. Now you have hundreds of personal assistants that can show you what to do next.'
Mistake #2: Using the “They must not be my people” excuse to be spammy. I’m not a fan of this common tactic. Here’s how it works: people send a huge number of sales/promotional emails to their list with no warning and with no easy way to opt out. When people complain or unsubscribe, they put it on them (“Oh well, they aren’t my type of subscriber anyway…”), instead of taking responsibility for the spam (let’s call it what it is). What ever happened to “treat others the way you want to be treated”?
Wow this is a really comprehensive review of Wealthy Affiliate and I have learned things I never knew even though I’ve been a member for nearly 3 months. I love the program though and agree with what you have said. I also love the testimonials you have and the evidence you have given that people can make a living online. My own income is small but growing and i know that I’m investing in my future. Thanks for such an thorough review.
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.
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.
People fail at internet marketing everyday due to the fact that it requires lots of time and hard work. Most people out there searching for ways to make money online is looking for a get rich quick scheme and they genuinely aren’t looking for an opportunity to start a business online. it’s a proven fact that about 90% of people who come into this business will fail because they lack the motivation and the drive that’s needed to be successful in this business.
The program has two (2) different membership levels: the basic and the premium. This is really awesome because you can join without spending a single penny, look around, meet some people, create your own websites (hosting included) and see how it goes. If you love it like I do – you will join Premium for ever more benefits or you could still build an online business using your free starter membership, no strings attached. This alone makes WA so much better than any other program or opportunity – there is no risk of losing money to something that might not work. Put your credit card away and get a free membership!
I would not recommend this company at all. Wealthy affiliate charge a fortune for their training modules/products. I have been bombarded with emails that are basically spam about 5 times a day since I created an account. I just cannot get Kyle and the other team members to stop sending me emails. After signing for an account I decided to go for a cheaper course with DS dropshipper.
Yes I have been with WA for a while now (3 years to be exact) When first starting out I wouldn’t recommend starting more than 1 niche due to the fact that you will likely become overwhelmed trying to learn and write about 2 niches at the same time. Once you get some experience under your belt and are making some steady sales from 1 niche you could branch out into other niches (Like I did)
Your next steps should be to get started on your first training lesson. I have provided the link to this in my welcome message I sent you on your profile.This is going to be setting up the foundation for your business and introducing you to the world of affiliate marketing. If you need anymore help or have anymore questions please let me know and I would love to help you out.
Finally, if you’re only planning on “dipping your toes in the water” to see what affiliate marketing is all about, do not sign up for the premium membership. The free membership is more than enough for you to see what it’s all about. Premium membership should be reserved for those who are actually serious about building a real business for themselves. If you aren’t in this for the long-haul, there is no reason to waste your money.
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.
I am a HUGE fan of the “freemium” business model. Wealthy Affiliate follows that model by offering a free membership account. The free membership gives you limited access in the Wealthy Affiliate dashboard. Some of your access lasts forever, such as some of the training videos and community features, while other features only last for a limited time, such as the live chat feature. Here is what you get with the free Wealthy Affiliate Membership:
Some commentators originally suggested that affiliate links work best in the context of the information contained within the website itself. For instance, if a website contains information pertaining to publishing a website, an affiliate link leading to a merchant's internet service provider (ISP) within that website's content would be appropriate. If a website contains information pertaining to sports, an affiliate link leading to a sporting goods website may work well within the context of the articles and information about sports. The goal, in this case, is to publish quality information on the website and provide context-oriented links to related merchant's websites.
You read that correct, this course costed me $8,388. If I would have paid it all up front, it would have only been $8,000. I didn't have eight grand sitting around at the time, so I struggled to make the 12 monthly payments of $699. I maxed out my credit card in the process and put the remaining payments on my wife's card (she's so supportive, I love her to pieces!). Now on to the contents of the course.
Hi Scott. Well I must say, you certainly have made this sound very attractive. For the past year I have just been trying to figure out how all this works. ( I’m 49 ) I am not Tech Savvy!! Did not actually get my very first computer till a year & 1/2 ago( Don’t know what took so long 🙁 ). The Internet world, ( so I have heard it called ) is a scarry place :(, and if you want to become involved in it like I do, it’s hard to know where to start, who to beleive, who to listen to, very scarry. But I truly have to say that after reading your review of WA, I do feel alot more comfortable about finley finding someplace to start. I will be joing your program later this morning, after the birds wake up 🙂 (it’s only 5am right now). I would like to Thank You for the time you have put in to this review of WA, and giving me the sense of finally being able to say, I can trust this guy Scott. You have a nice day, and I do look forward to talking with you more down the road.
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.
Hey Alex. My name is Aida, from Nairobi, Kenya. This is very informative. Just came across Wealthy Affiliate in my rendezvous around the net. I’ve been in network marketing for about 8 months now…It was mostly exciting but the support system hasn’t been great! Made me start exploring ways of pushing my business through online sales/ leads and somehow landed on WA as one of two options I’ve found to be genuine. Your review is on point. I wouldn’t mind joining your network of Affiliate Marketing. Do you? Let me know how we can partner.
I would suggest that you open up your FREE account at WA, fill out your profile by uploading a picture and writing a brief description about your self. After that get started on the training lessons, this is all explained in full detail in the training. I look forward to working with you man and if you have anymore questions feel free to drop me a message or leave them on here.
This usually happens when you are signing up from the same IP address as someone who currently has a WA account. This could also happen if you are trying to sign up from the same computer as someone with an active WA account. If neither of these situations apply to you then I would send Kyle an email Kyle@wealthyaffiliate.com (Co founder of WA) and explain whats going on to him and he will get your account setup for you.
Affiliate marketing is one of the most popular ways people make money online. It is a strategy where an individual partners with a business in order to make a commission by referring readers or visitors to a business’s particular product or service. But that really is quite a simple explanation. To be really successful at making money with affiliate marketing there is a little more to it.
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.
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!
I'm really grateful for the Wealthy Affiliate platform. It has allowed me to flourish as an affiliate by providing me with all the tools I needed to review products and make profitable affiliate sites. It also has given me access to real affiliates that I can ask questions if I get stuck. I am paying it forward in the same way it was paid forward to me.
You are not obligated to join the yearly membership whatsoever, it is just highly discounted and a great deal for those who can afford it. If you haven’t already I would sign up for your Free account check it out for as long as you like and let me know how you are getting along and how you like it. We will take things from there and I will be there to help you out whenever you need a hand with something or don’t understand something.
Hi Candice, There are many different forms of payment that WA will accept. These include PayPal, Electronic checks (It takes 3-5 business days for these to clear) Credit and Debit cards including Visa or MasterCard. You could also have it setup to be automatically withdrawn from your bank account as well. I look forward to working with you here soon and if you have any further questions let me know and I would be glad to answer them for you. Wealthy Affiliate Review & 4k/Month Results!
