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.

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.

I am very interested in WA. I have tried a couple other programs and worked very hard at one in particular with absolutely no results. I would like to retire in a few years and need something I can do at home as we travel. My question is simple. How much time per day do you feel is required to get this business off the ground as well as how much time per day do you feel is required to maintain it. I work another job and want to be sure I am not biting off more than I can chew.


ANOTHER marketing scheme for you to harrass your friends with and beg them to work-from-home and make money by blogging about what they 'love', when they will really end up monitoring one blog, the one that pays them for every fool who follows that yellow brick to Wealthy Affiliates and the dope behind the curtain. If you know anything about internet marketing already, you will see right through this. 
If you want the full story, you can check out my about me page (it’s a pretty cool story if I may say so myself). The short version is that I got started with affiliate marketing back in 2009 and was able to go full-time in 2011. I now own more than a dozen websites in several different niche industries. You can see a listing of most of my sites at RogersConcepts.com.
Use the link in your post to join up with me and I will be your mentor. If you need help getting started I will be there to help you out. Once you join you will be asked to complete your profile by uploading a picture of yourself or you can use one of the images that WA provides you with. After you are done with that take a few minutes and fill out your profile description. In this area you could tell the WA community a little about yourself and let us know what goals you would like to achieve at WA.
thanks for your review as in was quite in time before i made any commitments to those coffee guys,but am having difficulties signing up for WA it kept saying i already have an account but its obvious i don’t,and even when i request for forgotten password to be sent to my email,it says my email is not in their database, so i don’t really know what the issue is, please can you assist me? i would really want to go premium.
Affiliates should try their best to make it easy for their readers to easily navigate to a brand’s site via an affiliate link. The more people click on that link, the better for everyone because 1) the more people you refer to a company, the more commissions you can potentially earn, and 2) those you’re referring will be able to improve their lives in some way thanks to the product you recommend.
thanks for the review! In the past few months I’ve been contacted by Herbalife, Amway and Worldventures and am now sick of all those hyped like cult communities trying to sell you their “awesome” lifestyle. No more pyramid scheme for me, just honest business. That’s why I’d like a little honesty from you. My partner and I are really interested in building an online business based on our passions such as fitness/sport, travel, photography and food. I know these are big niches but could you make it clear how could we get affiliate connections in these areas without working for amazon etc? We don’t wanna sponsor single products in general but healthy, active, lifestyle choices. We wanna help people improving their life!

My name is Emmeline. I am 28 years old. I live in California working as a receptionist and am living with my family of 5 in a 2 bedroom 1 bathroom house because I cannot support myself on my income, despite my job being full time. I have an AA degree and have been acting/singing in theatre since I was a kid. I currently do community theatre and stand up comedy alongside my job. But I do not often make money from it, I do it because I love it.
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
It’s always best to learn how to do something yourself so you can save money and gain more knowledge of how everything works. Other than that there’s no way to streamline the process. I really hope this has helped you out Meeri and has helped answer your questions. I really think WA could help you get your foot in the door of affiliate marketing and show you how to build a very profitable online business.

Wow, what a thorough, and detailed review of Wealthy Affiliate. You have answered all of my questions, and then some. I now feel as though I have the information I need to make an educated decision. I am amazed at all of the benefits and training that Wealthy Affiliate provides, and 2 free websites to start out with. Anyone that has an interest in this program needs to see this review. Well done, and thanks for sharing. Tom


These could be some super interesting articles that someone could benefit from reading from! When someone types “home roasting coffee machines”, “how to roast green coffee”, or “can you roast coffee in a popcorn machine”, my website could turn up! I'll start out with these three articles, but quickly expand to more and more topics as I do more research.
As a WA member, I have shared my website as others have shared theirs with me. There are also excellent course modules that take you step by step on web set. Yes, there are those whose only interest is selling WA membership…. it’s easy and not as time consuming as starting a niche business. Personally, I promote the membership and will continue to do so until my web business launches.
A. Different companies and networks online offer different ways of payment. For example if you are an affiliate of Amazon, they will pay you out through a check, gift card or a direct bank deposit. Some companies prefer to pay you by PayPal while other might go a different route. If you want to know how a company pays out the commission you can simply do a Google search on their affiliate program.
I would suggest that you get started by signing up for your FREE account and then filling out your profile by uploading a pic of yourself or using one of the ones that Wealthy Affiliate provides you with.Write a little about yourself in your profile description and let the community know what you would like to achieve and list some goals for yourself.
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.
Understand where people are at in the buying cycle and promote accordingly. Spend the most time sharing affiliate links where people are ready to buy. For example, you can share affiliate links on Pinterest, but most people are not on Pinterest to buy but to look. As such, focusing your affiliate marketing strategy on Pinterest might not be the best use of your time. Review posts, for example, might be better at tipping people over the line into buying.
I don't like Facebook groups because Facebook loves to shove ads in your face and distract you. I've gotten on Facebook many time to engage with an entrepreneur community only to get distracted by my news feed or ads. Wealthy Affiliate really got rid of the distractions by building the community into the platform. No ads, no dramatic statuses. Just pure business. I really like that.

Making money… that’s also a different story. I made my very first commission within 10 days of starting my WA training. It was $33 and it was late 2007. I have been making a full time income online since early 2008. Some people will see income within a week while others will take months to get there. It’s just like starting any business, online or offline. Results will vary based on many different things. Unfortunately many people jump into online business thinking they will get rich quick without doing much work and that’s a wrong mindset. If you start an offline business you’ll have to spend 2-3-4 years without salary, just making your investment back. You’ll also need $50,000 – $500,000 to start that business. While online you can start virtually with zero money and you’ll see results a lot faster than in a traditional brick and mortar business. If you want to see instant results than a business is not for you. Online or offline.

Fantastic. I am floundering in information overload from WA. I am a premium member and have been through the gauntlet of being discouraged and quit. I went to another online marketing company and found that what I had was a hundred times better with WA. I went back and discovered things that I hadn’t found the first time I was there. Yes, I am not in the money game yet but with WA’s humbleness and wonderful help I intend to keep on trucking. Your site is the best motivation that can be had to people who are struggling with the learning process.

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.

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.

Often times Affiliate Marketing is Over-Hyped: You’ll see a lot of testimonials promising spectacular results with affiliate marketing, such as “person X made $60,000 in just 30 days as a brand new affiliate” & there’s many similar messaging like this that unfortunately give affiliate marketing the wrong perception, that its some sort of get rich quick scheme, which it is far from. This kind of insanely fast results most likely came from a successful Facebook ad or other successful paid aid. Sometimes due to multitude of factors an ad can just take off and generate high revenues for short period & then burn out. The difficulty is being able to sustain those kind of numbers consistently. FB for one doesn’t like most affilaite offers to be promoted, so eventually your FB ad account will get banned or your ad will burn through its audience and stop working. I know this because I’ve been there done that. Those massive pay days are fun but the real challenge is can you sustain it?
What do you do when you need help with something? I normally go to google search to look for the answer. Kyle and Carson the owners at Wealthy Affiliate understand the concept of support and help and in order to create a good online business you will need support and the community here will give you just that as toy can ask for help via a blog on the forum’s or on instant chat hence the 24/7 community support within the platform. There are various types of support:

It is unfortunate to hear you weren’t able to make money online. Unfortunately I do not what kind of effort you put in and how you approached your own business so I can’t comment on the reasons why. I for a fact made more money online in my very first year than I made working a full time office job here in Canada. As you mentioned, creating a successful online business does take a LOT of work and time as well. If it was easy we’d all be rich. Building a business is a long term process and should be seen as such.
OMG Machines is not a true blue affiliate course. The main thing they teach is client SEO consulting. Their affiliate section isn't that big or robust. They focus way more on client SEO. Client SEO is what they call it when a business pays you monthly for you to rank their website on the first page of Google. It's cool because you can make money fast, but you're helping to build someone else's asset, not your own like with affiliate sites.

A sound product strategy is a must for new affiliate marketers. Ideally, you should choose a niche that you can make money online with and has a lot of product vendors. This will give you a wide selection of products to offer your online community. However, limit yourself to two or three products at a time, so that you become the expert others turn to and trust when reaching for their wallet.
