I am glad I stumbled on your site (was googling if Swagbucks was worth it and I saw your blog post about it). I thought you sounded reasonable so I checked out the rest of your blog and decided to sign up for the free 5 day course, which on Day 1 you suggest signing up for WA. It all sounds great, and I appreciate your explanation about the Amazon affiliate vs. seller.
People are your business. Without people, you have nobody to sell or advertise to. Within the first few lessons at Wealthy Affiliate you will learn all about the most current traffic techniques and how you can get an ABUNDANCE of relevant customers to your website. Wealthy Affiliate members OWN Google rankings, and own a huge share of ALL traffic online. That is a fact.
Thank you for the reply. You have been on WA for a few years. As there are many different niches; from your knowledge, how many niches(if more than 1) should one person have to provide others with eye catching sites with solid and valuable information make a comfortable living(6 figure) as there are abundance of overwhelming information? You answer pretty fast, which I like. Thanks.
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.
Free Training Across The Web – Believe it or not, most of the training I’ve received over the years are sources I’ve found for free all over the web. I’ve shared a LOT of that info with you on this very website through my nearly 500 blog posts (to date). However, you should also check out sources such as YouTube. It’s true, places such as YouTube are filled with scammers and spammers, but mixed within those are some gems. For example, you can look up keynote speeches on affiliate marketing from various conferences, such as Affiliate Summit speakers. Using free content from around the web is hard to sort out and make sense of, so it’s best to use a service like Wealthy Affiliate because you are able to learn the things you need to learn, in the order you need to learn them, without all the distractions. However, as you progress, you may need to learn something specific, at which point you can go to free sources across the web to learn as you need it.
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.
I’ll explain why my review of Wealthy Affiliate and how it can and will benefit you in due course but if you are looking for an opportunity to learn and build a legitimate online business that I can’t suggest or think of a better platform to build on. Wealthy Affiliate I believe is one of the oldest standing and probably the most innovative online business community with an abundance of like minded people who help each other grow.
We were all new to online business at some point in time. Personally, for me, I had absolutely no experience when I got started and I can totally relate to how you must feel about now. You can still join WA as a premium member no matter where you live Willz. If you happen to live in 1 of the countries I mentioned above, you just wouldn’t be able to take advantage of the free starter membership.
You can gain access to your first month at an unbelievable $19! This is entirely up to you though May and you can remain a free member for as long as you like. Personally, for me it took me around 3 and a half months before I made my first sale. My income has skyrocked since then and I have been making a full time income online for over 2 and a half years now.
Note: Like regular browser cookies, affiliate link cookies also have an “expiration date.” So for example, if the affiliate program has it set up so that their cookies expire within 12 hours, the consumer has 12 hours to make the purchase and have the sale connected to your affiliate ID. The consumer can bookmark the link and come back to the product page later on, but as long as they make the purchase within that time, you’re golden!
If you’re on the same IP address as someone that has an account then this could be the reason why you’re getting this error msg. If this isn’t the case then I would send Kyle (Co-Owner Of WA) an email notifying him of this issue at Kyle@Wealthyaffiliate.com I will also send him an email and he will look into it and set you up with your own account.
Thank you for sharing this thorough review about Wealthy Affiliate of which l am also a premium member for a while. I am totally agree with you that Wealthy Affiliate is the best Affiliate Marketing Training platform in the industry. They do provide all the necessary features for you to succeed in your online business, but you must work hard and devote your time and effort into your training and business.
One of the main reasons why most newbie affiliate marketers give up after 3 months is the fact that they can’t build up traffic to their affiliate website. It’s a thorn in most marketers’ sides, but one that can be easily resolved if you put the effort in. Below I have covered a few areas that will get you good targeted traffic to your affiliate deals.
Personally for me, I was able to go full time and I was able to quit my job within 10 short months of becoming a premium member by simply following the training, leveraging the premium tools that come with the premium membership, and getting the help and support that I much needed when I first started. My income has grown considerably since then and it continues to grow more each day. The question you should be asking yourself is can you really afford to not become a premium member?
An affiliate marketing program is a lot of work, and in most situations there's a lot of competition so you're not going to be bringing in money immediately. Business owners and entrepreneurs suppose that all you need do is setup a site and choose an affiliate to associate with and then just let it run its course. But according to Three Ladders Marketing, only 0.6% of affiliate marketers surveyed have been in the game since 2013. That means that affiliate marketing takes time and effort to build and make money.
Wealthy Affiliate has 2 levels of membership: Free and Premium. It’s explained in the review. You should join as a free member so you could see what’s inside and decide if you like it. You can remain a free member for as long as you want, however you won’t get access to all levels of training and private support will only be available for 1 week. However, you can build 2 sites and work on them for as long as you want, for free.
Yes you can start up a website in the cooking niche. We have many other WA members who are involved in this niche and they are doing really well with it. You could definitely put up your own recipes and share them with everyone. The FREE Starter membership is forever and it never expires. Once you join you will gain instant access to your 2 free websites, your first certification course as well as the highest quality tools available to start up an online business.
Jaaxy is the most powerful online keyword research tool out there, which relates to the affiliate online business model that Wealthy Affiliate teaches. Street Articles is an article directory that used to be a tool for WA members too. They could write posts there about the same topic their sites were about to create backlinks to them and boost their rankings. After Google changed its algorithm, backlinks started to be seen differently at Google’s eyes so this tool stopped being so important as before.
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.
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!!
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.
I wouldn’t say you can’t be successful with a free domain, for example barenakedscam.siterubix.com, but having a personal domain will definitely help with branding and makes it more credible, plus there’s no restriction on the design if its your own domain. Free domains have certain restrictions in terms of the customization of the look and feel of the website.
I haven’t even scratched the surface as to everything that you will get as a premium member. I would definitely recommend that you check it out and see if it’s what you are looking for. It has changed my life and showed me so many different ways to make money. If you need any help getting started I am here for you. Feel free to send me a message anytime you have a question. You can open up your Free account here and get started on your first training lesson.
I know the difference between other programs I joined before and WA. That’s why to me, WA is the best program I have ever known existing online. Let me assure anyone with doubts to try WA and you will see it’s the best program to start an online business with. Try it and you will find it the best program online. That’s my own opinion based on my experience on the many programs I joined before. Thanks so much Scott
What kind of commission do they offer? One-time commissions or recurring commissions? For example, many programs pay you one time for sending a customer. On the other hand, some programs like membership sites or SaaS (software as a service) programs will pay you a commission as long as the person you referred is a paying customer. Recurring commissions are great when you can find them! Wealthy Affiliate Review: A Skeptic no More! See my Results.
