Hi Rose, I’m glad that you are interested in learning more about WA and I would love to help your brother get started making money online. This opportunity is open to everyone of every gender,and it is available to internationals and nationwide. It doesn’t matter where you live or what country you are from. There are a few ways that you can get paid, You can choose Paypal if it’s available in your country or you could choose getting a check or direct deposit into your bank account.

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.
If you research any successful millionaire entrepreneur you will realize that they constantly learn new things. They attend seminars, hire coaches, read books, meet experts in their field – they stay updated and learn something new every single day. There hasn’t been a single time that I came to Wealthy Affiliate and haven’t learned something new – this is the reason I am still a member and still excited every time I log into my account.
Continuing with my example above, in my article about roasting green coffee, I can find green coffee sellers and promote their coffee on my blog. In my article about home roasting coffee machines, I can promote my top 3 favorite home roasters. After I sign up for those affiliate programs (they are free to join), I just place my affiliate links in my content, and it automatically tracks sales.
As you can tell from her homepage, all of Andréa’s posts focus on all-natural, high-protein, delicious recipes. She has a niche, and she sticks to it! Whenever she calls out an ingredient that’s associated with an affiliate program she’s involved in (such as a protein powder), she hyperlinks that word with an affiliate link back to product’s website. 
If you set your mind to it you can achieve anything if you are willing to work hard at it. 80% of people who start out in affiliate marketing end up failing because they either don’t have the right training or they get overwhelmed with everything you need to learn to succeed in this business. If you are willing to work hard at this you can make lots of money but it’s not going to come easy.
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.
No problem Candice, There is no rush to join and I would rather you wait until you can devote more time to doing this then have you join when you are too busy and not do anything. I’m not going anywhere and I will be here in January when you are ready. Thanks for responding back to me and I look forward to working with you here soon. Talk to you soon Candice.
Sometimes, individual entrepreneurs with great products are worth a look, although you should check them out first and do some research. Entrepreneurs or companies may run their own affiliate program and you can apply directly to them to promote their products and services. Finally, Amazon is always an option as you can be an affiliate for just about any type of physical product on their network.

If you do decide to go ahead and try affiliate marketing, don't give up when things get tough. When you feel like giving up, message me within Wealthy Affiliate first before calling it quits. Every new affiliate goes through the frustrating phase of wanting to quit. When you hit that phase, success is usually right around the corner waiting on you (assuming you followed the training).


There are a variety of different ways you can get paid. Depending on which affiliate programs you sign up with you can get paid through Paypal which is how I get paid and it’s the most common way. Lots of affiliate programs also pay you through direct deposit to your bank account. You simply enter your details when you sign up and after you start making sales they will deposit your earnings into your account. You could also choose to get a check in the mail if you would prefer to get paid this way.
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 don’t necessarily have to have a huge site or lots of traffic. Consider emailing an affiliate program’s contact person (look for contact info on the site or in affiliate newsletters) if you send a lot of leads their way, rank well in the search engines for a related keyword or have a high conversion rate. Make your email compelling. Read my tips here. You just have to be a good fit and provide excellent value to the merchant. Another good resource for this is here.

Solo Build It – As I stated earlier in this Wealthy Affiliate review, I initially learned how to start my own business with this service. Solo Build It is somewhat similar to Wealthy Affiliate as far as the training is concerned, but Solo Build It but I believe the training at Solo Build It is far superior. My favorite part about Solo Build It, however, is that they offer absolutely EVERYTHING you’ll ever need to grow your business online including domain registration, an intuitive site builder, research tools, hosting, and all the other tools you need are in one place with training on how to put it all together. You can learn a lot more about them by going through their video tour.
I see a few complaints here and I actually did the same sort of research before joining Wealthy Affiliate.  I even remember reading a report like this.   What I did find is that it was easy to make a decision on whether or not to try it after reading mostly positive reviews and reading a few negative reviews on here from what appears to be competitors and those that maybe had a bad experience for one reason or another.  I see some said their write access was cut off and I think that can happen if you get reported for spamming others within the community.  There is no spam allowed at WA which is nice.
Absolute fraud. They will let you join community and have access “to all the knowledge in the world” they will provide some links that will actually not be any more helpful than any regular youtube video that you can get for free. And they will offer initial one month trial fee but after that automatically charge your credit card even if you don’t want to extend with them. Of course they will not tell you this. After that wealthy affiliate will bomb you with emails to join again pay again, extend your membership. All automatically pre made emails for every single holiday new emails will arrive with new offers, telling you they are sorry you left and that WA became so much better, just come back pay again and see for yourself 🙂 They also made through WA lot of “honest” WA review websites that will tell you how they are legit. I didnt understand all this before I gave them my money.
Concerning WA, free membership is not allowed in my country, and as a member of WA for quit a long time now you should be a able to to tell us the reason(S) why some countries are not eligible for free membership, or is there a communication gap between the WA founder and the members? Because that should have been a very good ground for some newbies like me to start with.
Affilorama – While I promoted Affilorama in the past, I no longer do for many reasons. It has simply become too outdated. Affilorama also lacks in some of the training. Instead, they focus on helping you get started quickly by designing a site for you and seeding it with content. Some of the optional training courses they sell are quite expensive and compares to an entire annual membership at Wealthy Affiliate, so that’s why I no longer promote them. Again, they are worth checking out, but I think Wealthy Affiliate is a much better buy.

I would suggest that you get started by opening up your FREE account by clicking on the “JOIN NOW” button above. When you join I will be there to help you out every step of the way. If you have any questions or need my help with anything let me know. I really am looking forward to working with you Andrew and helping you get started with your own online business. If you have anymore questions please let me know and I would be more then happy to help you out.
The way I understand it, it is best to join WA if one has a business to promote. The business should ideally be one that he is passionate about or in line with his own interest. He can then use the knowledge and technology learned from WA to build a website concerning his product or service, drive traffic to the website and hopefully, generate sales from his visitors.
I don’t recall saying that I sold medical supplies from Amazon, but I do have a website that I sell gaming headsets and other gaming accessories from Amazon which I make money from. It’s actually not as hard as you might think, and I’ll explain how it works in a few easy steps. You just need to pick a hobby or interest of yours and build a website around this hobby. You then need to attract visitors to your website and promote products and services that are related to this hobby.
As regards to the final question "Is wealthy Affiliate Worth it?", the answer is Yes. I do recommend it to anyone who is willing to put hard work and effort on his business online. As I said previously on this review, you won't get rich overnight but if you manage to follow the training step by step and you are consistent, I guarantee you that you will se results.
24/7 Live Chat- Got a burning question that you need an instant answer to?

In 2006, the most active sectors for affiliate marketing were the adult gambling, retail industries and file-sharing services.[16]:149–150 The three sectors expected to experience the greatest growth are the mobile phone, finance, and travel sectors.[16] Soon after these sectors came the entertainment (particularly gaming) and Internet-related services (particularly broadband) sectors. Also several of the affiliate solution providers expect to see increased interest from business-to-business marketers and advertisers in using affiliate marketing as part of their mix.[16]:149–150
I already have a website and a domain name. My website is made with WordPress, and GoDaddy hosts the website. Would I have to move my website to another host, that is part of WA? Also I am thinking of keeping the website much the same way it is now(with a few changes). I already have a blog page, can I just add my links there? I have a gardening business, and I want to talk about ergonomic tools, pads, sun hats, shoes, bug spray, garden related art or jewelry, proper use of one’s body while gardening, getting the most from your gardening and achieving health and wellness through gardening. Not just the movement of digging, or hauling mulch, but with every technique I teach.

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.
Dear Scott, First thanks so much for your review on Ameriplan. I was about to join until I read your review. Thank you for being frank but not overly negative. It really came across as a realistic review. Then I followed you here and am intrigued. However, some of the other WA blogs state it is not an MLM but the way you make money is by selling the WA premium package. Is that the only way you can make money? And if so how is it not an MLM? I am still going to join the free program through you as you seem like a straight shooter and easy to work with.
Summary: While other programs charges hundreds or thousands of dollars to teach Affiliate Marketing, you can get access to everything there is in Wealthy Affiliate for a fraction of the fee, plus you'll enjoy so many other valuable features without ever needing to pay for upsells. This is what I like about Wealthy Affiliate because it genuinely wants you to succeed as an affiliate marketer.
Wealthy Affiliate is a training program that teaches you how to do affiliate marketing. Affiliate marketing is an avenue where people can earn money promoting other people’s products or services. This is the best place for any beginner to learn because they have a conducive step by step training that will bring you through every step of your journey.
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.

When people do a Google search for a review about the best Iphone 6 cases your review pops up and they click on it, read it, and want more information about it. You’ll need to apply to affiliate programs from reputable companies like Amazon, Walmart, Best Buy, and Target just to name a few. You’ll be given your own special unique affiliate link when you join which keeps track of your clicks and whenever someone makes a purchase through your link.


I have seen some people start making money within 2 weeks, others it takes a month or longer. It all depends on how much time you devote to this business and how serious you are about it. For me personally, it took me around 3 months of hard work, motivation ,and dedication to start making money and seeing sales come in.To get started click here to setup your new account then post a message to my profile wall telling me that you joined and then we can get you going.
Hello Jack, so the only other stuff we pay for is the tools needed like autoresponders and stuff to design your website, programmes that help you write a blog etc (although I understand there are some free ones). I had signed up to another company and really enjoying it but I had to keep on putting more money in if I wanted to progress, it wasn’t that cheap either! Thank you
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.
The $47 fee is a recurring payment every month. You can get your first month for only $19 so that you can try it out and see if you like it.There is also a yearly special where you can pay $359 and this comes out to only 98 cents a day. This is a savings of over $200 and it is the best way to pay. You can stay as a Free member for as long as you like there is no cutoff on it. The starter membership also comes with Free premium help and support for your first 7 days so that you can test it out and see how you like it.

I think you did a great job with this review of Wealthy Affiliate. You pretty much covered everything but what I like the most about your review is how you included not only your own testimonial but also those of other successful Wealthy Affiliates who are making money online. This just goes to show that you can really make money online by applying the training and lessons taught by WA.

You should see a screen that says something like “I’m sorry but our starter membership isn’t currently available in your country, but we would love to have you as a premium member”. Do you see anything like that on your sign up page? If you could tell me what’s preventing you from signing up I could help you solve the problem and get you signed up.
Hey Frank! I happened to stumble on this review while reading your review of Kyani. I have already signed up to be a distributor with Kyani so was wondering if WA would be a good place for me to start that business up at? I am pretty new to all this and really need help with getting online sales if possible. I really don’t care to sell products to family and friends. Not that I don’t think the product is a good one, but my family and friends are not on the same wave I am currently on with getting healthy and leading/maintaining a healthier lifestyle. Hope this makes sense as I am typing this as fast as I can from 9-6 desk job! 🙂
It was the complete opposite for my gaming headset site which I only had 3 or 4 reviews written before I made my first sale from Amazon. The competition of your niche also plays a huge part in this as well. As for how many words your articles need to be there is no required length that they need to be in order to get rankings in Google. You just need to make sure that your articles are in depth, and that you are giving people all the information that they need to make a sound decision on whether they should purchase the product that you are recommending or not.

Basically, anyone who is looking to make money fast should stay away from Wealthy Affiliate. There are plenty of “make money fast” e-books and courses out there, and they are all a scam (trust me). While Wealthy Affiliate is legit, they will absolutely never claim that they teach you how to make money fast. Building a legitimate online business takes time.
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.
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.
Hey Hugh, You definitely do not need to be a professional writer to be able to make money online. Writing has never been my strong point and I suffered with this all through my high school years and I pretty much hated writing. I didn’t let that stop me from achieving success online and I don’t think anyone should let that stop them from living their dreams. I am living proof that anyone can do this no matter what your skill level is or if you don’t know the first thing about this business. In the year and a half I have been doing this I have learned more than I ever have in my entire life. I owe it all to Wealthy Affiliate and their awesome training lessons and their willingness to help anyone setup a business online.
You get the products from signing up for affiliate programs. There are thousands of different affiliate programs on the internet which are FREE to sign up with. Whatever you are passionate about and would like to promote on your website you can join their affiliate program. The most popular ones are Amazon,Walmart, and Best buy or Target. After you sign up with these companies they will give you affiliate links which you will put on your website. Whenever someone clicks your link and buys the product that you recommended you will receive a commission for that sale.
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)
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.
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:
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.
This includes 24/7 access to the live chat where you can get your questions answered instantly and get help from thousands of experienced internet marketers. You also get your own blog and access to 3 classrooms. After 7 days you will lose access to the help and support functions if you don’t upgrade but everything else will still be fully functional and there is no limit to this.
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.

You are provided with 2 free websites to get you started and these are a sub domain and have the siterubix extension at the end of them (For example howtomakemoneyonline.siterubix.com) With the premium membership you get 25 of these sub domains as well as the ability to host 25 domains that you own on WA’s state of the art secure and high speed hosting that’s included with your premium membership.
Once you have traffic, you need to "make money" from this traffic. This is the fun part. Without spending a dime, you can promote all the top brands in the world through affiliate programs. As a Wealthy Affiliate member, you'll learn how you can choose from close to 600 MILLION products/services and easily promote them on your website. No inventory. No shipping. No support required.
