Will my target audience realistically spend this amount for the product? Again, your reputation is on the line here. Is the product you are thinking of promoting priced reasonably for your audience? When I was writing my ebook, I was stuck on pricing. I asked around for opinions. A number of people suggested I price my ebook at $47! Their idea was to price according to value, not size. In my mind that was crazy. My network was composed of a lot of stay-at-home bloggers, and my collective audience was comprised mostly of people without a whole lot of disposable income. There was no way anyone was going to pay $47 for my 30-page ebook.
In some instances – like when the affiliate link is embedded in your product review – a single disclosure may be adequate. When the review has a clear and conspicuous disclosure of your relationship and the reader can see both the review containing that disclosure and the link at the same time, readers have the information they need. You could say something like, “I get commissions for purchases made through links in this post.” But if the product review containing the disclosure and the link are separated, readers may not make the connection.
There is serious competition in the affiliate marketing sphere. You’ll want to make sure you stay on top of any new trends to ensure you remain competitive. Additionally, you’ll likely be able to benefit from at least a few of the new marketing techniques that are constantly being created. Be sure you’re keeping up to date on all these new strategies to guarantee that your conversion rates, and therefore revenue, will be as high as possible.
Hi Marc, Wealthy Affiliate has its own affiliate program. There is no “link building system” integrated and such systems are actually not encouraged within Wealthy Affiliate. Too many people have used such systems and most (if not all of them) got their websites blacklisted from Google. The keyword search is based on several different platforms including Google.
Thank you for the article! You really provided a fair explanation of how Wealthy Affiliate works. Since this is simply a guide on how to successfully create and run your online business, am I allowed to cancel my membership after a period of time? I know that you said that there’s no limitation to cancelling my subscription, but what would be the benefit to continuing as a member even after I have learned all I needed and I’m successful in my business? What will I be losing if I opted to cancel after I’ve been successful? I’m just trying to learn if they (the founders of Wealthy Affiliate) expect people to pay the monthly or yearly fee forever or until they’ve acquired the success they desire. I look forward to your response!
I’ve had a quick look at your site and the first thing I noticed is that it’s not sexy. Site design is so important. Anytime I come across an ugly website I hit the back button faster than you can say call-to-action. I also see that you only have two pages, there’s no identity or branding behind the site. You’ve also got a generic header logo that is usually applied by default when you install a theme. No custom logo’s or anything.

Though there are no phone number to call for support. I have always gotten a response from WA webhost support team within an hour. I think it is about preference when it comes to web hosting. Some might find WA host reliable while others would host their websites some where else. Wealthy Affiliate is more of an education program and community for me. Even if I do not host with WA, I will still continue to be a premium member because I see the value in it.


You see what I’m getting at? If you break these niches down like I’ve done for you above and gradually start to build your site out you can branch out into other target markets in the tattoo niche. If you haven’t already, I would sign up for your free starter account by clicking on the “Become A Member” button above in blue. This way you’ll be able to get a feel for what you’ll be doing and get to check out everything that WA has to offer you without spending any of your hard earned money.

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.

Making Sense Of Affiliate Marketing – An easy to follow online course that teaches you the ins and outs of affiliate marketing. It’s written by Michelle Schroder who makes $100K+ a month from her blog. A genuine super affiliate that shares her success stories and affiliate marketing techniques with her community both on her private Facebook group and on her blog.
You could sign up with a drop shipping company and work something out with them so that you wouldn’t have to deal with the import/export procedures directly yourself. If you haven’t already done so I would sign up for your free account using the sign up link above. I will be sending you my welcome message which is going to walk you through the process of getting your account setup and point you to your first training course.
One thing I don’t like is that Wealthy Affiliate mainly focuses on beginner to intermediate trainings. While this makes sense as the vast majority of Wealthy Affiliate members are brand new to the industry, I would also love to see some more advanced training provided for those of us with a decade of experience in the industry. Sometimes even the pros like to be challenged!
These are some pretty broad interests and we can work on narrowing them down now that you have joined WA. It also looks like we have quite a few things in common as I have many of the same interests as you. I’m also a huge gamer myself and I’m passionate about electronics. One of my very first niches was electronics and this ended up being a busted niche and I failed miserably at it when I first started.
This course will teach you how making money online works, how to do keyword research, and walk you through building your first website. There are 10 video lessons in this module. At the end of each lesson, you will be given several tasks to complete. These tasks are important. They're the step-by-step blueprint for building a successful affiliate site.

Writing product reviews are an excellent way to enhance your credibility as an affiliate marketer. This is especially easy with information products like e-books which are relatively inexpensive. After establishing some steady income it may even be worth buying higher-end products, provided you get in touch with the product creator to work out a strategic marketing plan that takes you to the next level.
I come from the world of mlm where I have been taken advantage off 🙁 How are these network marketing companies are still legal is beyond me. I was searching on how to get a refund from the company I joined and I came across your website. finally someone who doesnt promise to make me rich overnight and explains how to build an actual wealth form home. I think it’s your honesty and transparency that got me curious about online marketing and the affiliate business.
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
Hello Alex. I’ve gone trough your reveal and 5 day courses (though I did not receive day 3. I sent you and email but you did’t reply) and all are very fantastic. Now I am ready join Wealthy Affiliate premium under you. I tried to sign-up but the system is telling me that my country is not supported, but you said one can sign-up under Premium from any country. Please can you help me to get sign-up under premium under you? Thank you.
It’s great that you are thinking long term and that you understand that building an online business will take time. If you are willing to stick with this for the next 2 or 3 years you will definitely make some awesome progress within that time. If you decide to Join As A Premium Member you will have the ability to host up to 50 domains. This would be 25 free domains and 25 domains that you own so yes you would need to purchase these domains from an outside domain registrar like Go Daddy or Namecheap.
I also want to add that whenever a Panda or Hummingbird update is about to be rolled out there is live video training that goes over how to be prepared for it, as well as things you can do to avoid being hit by it. If you were only with WA for 2 months then you obviously wasn’t serious about starting an online business. You need to give it at least 6 months to a year. It’s no different then starting up a traditional brick and mortal business in the outside world.
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 😉
You can actually get started for free with absolutely NO risk and NO catches. There is a starter membership which I have listed everything that you will get when you join as a free member in my review above. This includes everything you need to get started building the foundation of your website along with the proper tools and the right amount of help and support when you need it the most.
I would suggest that you get started by signing up for your FREE account by clicking on the “Join Now” button above. I will be there to help you out and get you started on your first 10 lessons. Let me know if there is something you don’t understand and I will explain it to you. I really am looking forward to working with you Shirley and helping you achieve success online.
Hi Mel, You can stay as a Free member for as long as you like. There is no time limit on the Free membership, just keep in mind the whole idea of the starter membership is to get you started. If you check out the Free membership, and you think that this is something you would like to make a career out of then you should check out the premium membership. There is no obligation though whatsoever to upgrade, it’s totally up to you when you feel you are ready. If you have any more questions feel free to get in contact with me and I will help you out. Your Friend Scott

Wealthy Affiliate offers detailed in depth training on how to do this and you can even get started for Free. If you haven’t done so already I would recommend that you sign up for your free account by clicking on the blue “Become A Member” button above. I really am looking forward to working with you Jackie and I hope this has helped answer your question. If you have any other questions for me or need my help please let me know.
NO ONE! I asked and asked. Other trial members asked. But we got zero proof of anything. And confronted with my requests, all I got were bad excuses from the owners of WA. “People are afraid that you copy their website.” LOL :D) As if I anyone could simply copy a website and steal their business. Totally ridiculous. If this was possible then anyone could easily find a topranking website on Google, copy it and get rich. LOL. And all this “secrecy” totally went against their proclaimed ideology about a helping and sharing community.
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 suppose my questions are threefold: 1) Are there niches pertaining to the performing arts? 2) Do you believe a right-brained person can really learn the logistics of affiliate marketing enough to turn it into primary income? 3) Due to my lack of finances, could I start with learning in the free program and upgrade to the premium when I can better afford it?
You can join these affiliate programs for free and they give you something called an affiliate link when you join. At the bottom of your review or article you insert your affiliate link and tell them they can buy the product by clicking on that link. If they buy the product through your link you make a commission on that sale. These can add up pretty fast after you get the hang of it.
Since I’ve been in the industry for 9 years I have joined countless training websites and not a single one came close to Wealthy Affiliate. I am not going to list everything within WA but just their Live Video classes are extremely amazing. There are now over 200 videos that train you on several subject. You can learn how to start and grow your email list in any niche, how to do social media marketing, how to run successful Facebook ads, how to do local SEO and find clients in your city, how to scale your niche websites and a lot more. Jay often does Niche Hot Seat series where people actually share their niche website and get a real live audit and suggestions on how to grow it, scale it and earn more money from it. Unfortunately it seems like you haven’t attended any of those closes and didn’t watch the previous classes which are all recorded. All of these classes concentrate on building a successful business outside of promoting WA.
The business that I started with the help of WA is this website you are visiting right now. This is where I make most of my money, I have a few others that makes me a couple hundred a month. I am currently enrolled in the boot camp program that Wealthy Affiliate has. This website is the outcome of the boot camp training and it has been one wild ride.
Once you join I will be getting in touch with you within your first hour to help you get your account setup properly as well as answer any questions you may have on your first day. I know how my first day was and I needed all the help I could get. I want your experience at WA to be the best ever and so I will be there to guide you every step of the way.
It’s great to see that we have something in common (Having the same name) You don’t need to be in the selling business or have any prior experience with sales in order to be successful at WA. You’ll need to come up with your own ideas as to what you want to sell based on your hobbies and interests. Wealthy Affiliate shows you how to take your hobbies and turn them into an online business with their proven and trusted step by step training.
do they teach you inside the programme how to generate the traffic? I have built websites and blogs in the past and learnt a little about affiliate marketing but have not been able to build up the traffic or ‘get in front of the right eyes’ . Also what kind of products do you sell? If you set up an amazon affiliate is it a case of chosing digital items that relate to your niche? I was so close to doing GAZ and so glad i read your article as they dont tell you about the thousands to buy the high pice ticket! So this one could be more my stream .
I will still end up using other paid websites or services we need to create Promotions and promote our Products, But My REALY BIG QUESTION and I have searched everywhere For HOURS after HOURS, are you going to teach on how to generate Traffic and where to get it from, because everybody is talking about how you do it, find a product get traffic and get paid like it magically happens which I am curtain That the way most People explain it is just not true, so I am really hoping that your Program is actually teaching us all ins and outs, on how it works and how to do it and were to go,
Thanks again for your reply. Few Other members in my WA research have told me that not every niches are profitable in WA. So picking a niche that is not profitable can make all of my work go down the drain; while others can succeed because they picked profitable niches, which guarantees them more relevant traffic, sales and success in WA. How can I find out in WA which niches are profitable, if I join WA? Also, can I incorporate as many languages as I want in all of my websites? Like if my website is in English, the visitors can scroll up or down the Language section on my websites to choose to see the website in any language they prefer?

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.


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.

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.


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’m so glad that you’ve done your due diligence Jerrie and looked for reviews about them before wasting your hard earned money on them. If you’re not cool with cold calling and hard selling then you’re not going to fit in at Ameriplan. Like you, I’m also a firm believer that everything does happen for a reason and I’m so glad you were able to find my website and I really do appreciate you dropping by and sharing your story with everyone here.

If you really do want to take the cheap route you don’t even need your own domain name you can just use the free websites from WA and build your websites out on your own. To answer your question about transferring the domain, If you bought your own domain from Go daddy, Namecheap, or any other domain registrar and you had it hosted on WA as a premium member and decide to leave you have 30 days to transfer it to other hosting.


On one hand, long and ugly affiliate tracking links are a straight giveaway to people that you want to sell them a product (and people may be uncomfortable clicking on them). Therefore, making your link shorter and "nicer" looking will it give a more professional appearance. One of my favorite plugins for making links look "pretty" is the Pretty Links WordPress plugin.
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.
If you do start building your website but decide to leave – it’s actually rather simple. Even after you cancel your membership you have a full month access to your website dashboard so you could move your website anywhere you want. WA keeps the back up of your site for 6 months total in case you didn’t move it within that first month but eventually decide to do it. Look at any other company – once you cancel your account they will shut your site down for good.
Thank you so much for answering my question! About the celebrity website I thought I could build a website about a celebrity and her fans who come to my website for the latest news about her might click different adds in my website if they are interested in sth. Since most of her fans are young I can advertise different products that young people want to buy. That was my idea. But since this won’t work I’ll try to think of sth else. But I have 1 more question. I’m a college student and I can’t spend a lot of time working for the website. Is it possible to make money if I work only 1 hour a day? I know it depend on how I work too and not only how much time I spend, but I just want to have an idea of how much I can earn a month if I work only 1 hour a day. Can I make like 100$ a month? I’m not trying to get rich with the website I just want to make some money online.
I worked hard at this and spent as much time as I possibly could on this everyday and within 4 months I had made my first sale. Wealthy Affiliate provides you with all the tools and training needed for you to be successful, the only thing missing is you. If you work hard at this and dedicate yourself to the training lessons, take action on what you learn, and ask questions when you have them then there’s no reason why you couldn’t be just as successful as I have been or more.

So, first you select whether you want a free domain or a paid domain. As a second step, you select the domain name you want (be careful, this can not be changed!). Next step is to select a Title for your website (don't worry, you can change this at any moment). Final step, is to choose a theme layout for your site. This can also be changed whenever you want.


Focusing on relevant products makes it easier to make quality referrals because there’s a nice overlap between your audience and the product you’re promoting. If you’re a fitness blogger, for example, it wouldn’t exactly fit in with the rest of your content if you started promoting video games and electronics that aren’t applicable to your niche. Instead, you might find a company whose products focus on protein powders, vitamins, workout equipment, etc.
What are some of your interests Scott and what are you passionate about? This is what your website is going to be based on and this needs to be narrowed down to a specific group of people. There are over 2 billion people online every day with this number constantly on the rise. The only thing you need to do is connect with these people and provide them with the information they’re looking for.
