Here is my question: “What do you know about ‘Jim Cockrum’s Coaching Course?’ I was debating, if it does not cost me “an arm and a leg” to join the course but then I start reading a few negative reports/reviews on “Ripoff Report” (old ones ) which made me slightly uneasy! Also, I noticed that apparently Jim and/or the “Coaching Office” is located in Utah! This makes me kind of uneasy also, because many Internet operators, companies , etc., are located in Utah! I happened to deal with a few of them and they all left me with a bad taste in my mouth and/or ‘burned’, so to speak!.
As far as how much you get paid for each sale this will vary depending on what affiliate program you sign up for and how much commission they pay. It also depends on what products you promote within your niche. If you decide to promote high ticket items like Big screen TV’s then you can make quite a bit per sale. The monthly income potential is unlimited as this is something that you will be starting from scratch and building it up over time.
Hi Jack! Just wondering if you can advise abit about the process about the course. While I understand there is alot of online process, technique and marketing that goes into an online business, my biggest issue is I just have no clue on what to run! I don’tk now my niche? I love investing – shares, equities, everything, but I am by far not a guru that I can setup a coaching style online business like those ‘rich dudes’ you see selling training courses online whiel worknig on their laptop in bali.
I have recently joined this group of affliates.I was seeing so many promises of riches without any work in the online business areana that I had almost given up.In my research I found the group to have excellent reviews. I had started the free offers before many reviews I read from my own discernmemt of the group.The more reviews I saw,and after communication with one of the owners,kyle,I decided to become a premium member.I am far from educated in the realm of being a business owner,and certainly not familiar with the online atmosphere from my construction manual labor background.I am very thankful to sites like this to confirm my doubts on scam sites and the reinforced belief in the few honest people on the web.Thanks Jack,Your Opinion Is Priceless In This Area For Those Of Us Who Have No Experience.
You do need to have the knowledge in your niche and you need to be able to create good content in order to make money online. That’s true. However I haven’t met a single successful online entrepreneur who was born with such knowledge or skills. When I started learning about online marketing I was completely horrible at writing content. I was definitely not an expert in anything. I had absolutely no idea what “traffic” meant or “blog” or “keywords” or “affiliate”… The fact that English is my 4th language didn’t help either especially when it came to content creation. But I had to start somewhere. The analogy that I love is babies learning to walk. When you’re a little baby you don’t just give up on the idea of walking because you aren’t “an expert” on it. You try to make your first step, fall down, then you get up and try again. Then again and again and again. Eventually you can walk, then run and if you’re persistent enough you could potentially become an Olympic champion. The same applies to business.
Thanks Rick, I think if people see proof that you are making money at this then that will show them that this is a real opportunity . Anyone no matter what skill level you are can get started today in their own online business. When I first came here I had no idea what I was doing. Thanks to the awesome training at Wealthy Affiliate, I now have an awesome website that is ranking very well in Google and I am making sales from it. I really appreciate you stopping by and leaving a comment Rick and if I can help you out in your online campaigns just let me know.
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.

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.

Hi Stacey, I can relate to you getting burned by other work from home offers as I have got scammed out of several thousands of dollars in the past. I just kept up my search and that is when I came upon Wealthy Affiliate. I came across them last year, and ever since then I have made it my mission to warn other people about work from home scams. I now try and lead everyone to a safe place to learn about working from home and online business. If you are looking for a place to help with school loans or making money online you have came to the right place.
I would suggest that you get started by creating your FREE account by clicking on the “Become A Member” button above. I will be contacting you within an hour of you joining to welcome you to the community and answer any questions you have Kath. I really am looking forward to working with you and helping you get an online business setup and up and running. I hope this has answered your questions and if you have anymore questions please let me know and I would be more then happy to answer them for you and help you out.

Hi Scott!Read all the questions & your sincere replies to each of them. I like your patient & caring attitude. I am free member at WA, but haven’t gone past the self profiling & 1st lesson. Reason: being employed doesn’t give me much free time for online learning..not that, having sufficient time to learn would make me an expert, as my ‘Net’ worthiness comes to nearly nothing..yes just web browsing, emailing & stuff like that. Much as I would like to be a Premier member to become very Net savvy with its technicalities, I doubt my own abilities at my age(yes i am 50)to do online business as an affiliate. But affiliate is what i want to be in future. So, Scott advise me.
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!
When it comes to updating your blog – I don’t have a definitive answer for you. Some of my blogs see new content once a week. Others see new posts more often. I prefer to concentrate on quality and not quantity. Also I am creating more and more audio and video content for my brands and a lot of this content simply doesn’t make it to my blogs. In my experience it’s the consistency that matters. Pick your publishing schedule and stick to it for a year.
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?
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.
Hi Jack: I’m an improved quadriplegic with limited use of my right hand and paralyzed lower extremities. I want to attempt Wealthy Affiliate and am buying a new MacBook laptop….so…Lots to do and learn. I’ll start with the free membership and go from there. Am I able to count on you or someone like you for help before I become a premium member? My income is VERY closely monitored by SSI and my Mutual of Omaha insurance payments each month.
As you see above there are lots of people making money as a result of following the training at WA. I would love to see you as the next success story and I will be there every step of the way to help you out in any way I possibly can. The guy pictured above is only 20 years old. He was able to quit his job where he was working at a gas station and barely making $700 a month after just 5 short months of following the training and taking action on what he’s learned.

The most valuable benefits of Wealthy Affiliate University (in my opinion) are the step-by-step approach to building a business and the support from Kyle, Carson and many expert members. Most other online programs are lacking the support and the clear action plan. I have tested dozens of different programs over the past 7 years and nothing comes close to the quality of WA.
Hey Kim, There is no such thing as a dumb question. You won’t know unless you ask and I’m glad you asked this question. When you join Wealthy Affiliate you can promote anything you want, I usually recommend people to start out with a passion or hobby. There are millions of different products you could sell on your website from places like Amazon, Click bank and many others. You can do this by signing up to their affiliate program which is free to join.
The best way to think about affiliate marketing is quality over quantity. There are a lot of small websites that will promote your product, but the key is finding a small number of partners that will deliver conversions. For example, an equity management services firm has over 20,000 affiliates in its system, but only about 25 affiliates generate 85 percent of revenue.
Once you sign up and they approve you, then you will be given access to their back office area where you will be assigned a unique affiliate id link. What you will be doing next is creating product reviews that target a specific set of keywords. This should be keywords that are related to products and services within the healthcare industry. You should place your unique affiliate links at the bottom of your review pages and tell people that they can get more information and get the lowest price on the product by clicking on your affiliate link.
What this does mean, though, is that because you will learn whitehat techniques you have to do the work to see the results. This makes it harder to rank any of your websites on Google, but this is a good thing. This just points more to the fact that Wealthy Affiliate is not a scam. What they teach you are real SEO techniques that even professionals use. 
Unfortunately, I am not acquainted with Indian Tax law, so I am not able to advice you on this. But, I would presume that if you earn income from affiliate marketing, your profit from the business will be tax under your personal income. That is unless you create a company to run the operation, then it will be subject to corporate tax, and the dividends receive from the company will be subject to your local personal tax.
If you only have an hour a day to work on this I think that would be a good starting point for you, but I can’t guarantee how much money you would make. It’s impossible to put an actual number on how much you could make by only spending an hour a day on this. This is totally up to you lola and it depends on how hard you work and what you do in that hour that will determine how much money you make.
I googled a product provider like Amazon and saw how much It would cost me to actually make a partnership with them, I was surprise to find it was free for the first month but than I saw after that, it was $25 per month? And than I was horrified to read further down the email that was sent to me, Kyle, claiming it took him three whole months just to earn his first dollar! I would have lost $50 by the time I saw my first dollar, which would have been about 80p because I live in the United Kingdom.
hmm. . . i am kind of new to online business and i got redirected to this post from your WARDCOPYCAT post. i read through and was developing interest until i got to the place where you listed countries not accepted and my country happened to be number on the list. That was heart breaking though. . . But still great job here keep it up. i will just keep searching for the right online job to do that accept my country.
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.
Hey Frank, I am writing to you because I have also been struggling with Inbox Dollars. As you mentioned they should have called it Inbox Pennies. After trying the inbox site and finding out that more than half the time I’m not qualifying for the surveys, I have become quite frustrated. Also the spinning billy is a barrel of laughs! Another reason I am contacting you is in the hopes that Wealthy Affiliate is on the up and up. I have tried a few other online money makers that I payed for, but backed out after learning more about them. I am disabled and in dire need of more supplemental income. Hoping this site is really legit. Hopes for the future, Duane.
Want to know a little secret about this site? When I first started this site, I only planned on monetizing by selling my OWN affiliate marketer training course. About halfway through creating my course, I realized that I would never be able to provide the type of quality product I intended. Even if I could, it would become outdated so fast that in just a couple years, I wouldn’t be able to sell it anymore.
If anyone is claiming Wealthy Affiliate is a scam, I'm going to guess it's because of one of the following reasons: they are trying to convince you to join a different program or they didn't have success with Wealthy Affiliate. Being a successful affiliate is going to require you to roll up your sleeves and put in some hours. Nobody said it would be easy, and if they did they're lying to you.
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:
And what about joining another company's affiliate program? It's all about extra revenue. Think about your customers' needs: What other products or services would interest your site visitors? Join those affiliate programs. Affiliate programs can increase your sales with no upfront cost to you. It just takes a little time to plan your strategy and select the partners that will have the greatest impact on your business.

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.


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.
Thank you for your reply. When I said about borrowing from other articles, I didn’t mean just copy and paste from other articles and put them into my articles. What I meant to ask was; Can I take ideas, keywords, structure, knowledge about certain topics from other articles and do some of my own research on them and put them into my articles, even if I may not have use or done them personally? Will that be a good practice or article writing way for me? Please let me know. Thank you again.

In your case you said you could devote 5 hours to it daily and that is great. There are many many scams out there that just want your money and promise you the world. Once you have a WA membership you will never need to search for another work at home offer ever again and lose hundreds of dollars like you already have. I look forward to working with you at WA and when you join please get in touch with me so I can get you on your way to earning money as soon as possible. Get started here
Wealthy Affiliate is pretty good at catching spammers, but that's only when someone reports them. If you're in live chat and someone offers to build your website for you because you're struggling and they're a pro, don't do it. They're just trying to cripple you and get you dependent on them. After you're dependent on them, they'll try to charge you for their services.
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.
Online affiliate marketing is wide open. You can write about or promote whatever you want! However, the incredible amount of possibilities can be overwhelming, and that leaves a lot of people saying that they don't have any good ideas. There are literally hundreds of comments below saying “I don't know which topic to pick”, or “I don't have any hobbies so what should I do?”.
Great article, Zach. The one question I have is about hyperlinking the brand name with your affiliate link. Isn’t it a little annoying for the reader if the brand name is hyperlinked throughout the article? It may even seem obvious to the reader that the blog is promoting an affiliate product. In an article with 1000+ words, a brand name may be mentioned at least 10-15 times. Do you suggest hyperlinking the brand every time?
But Keale’s AWOL won’t return my email, and I’m trying to get my “no questions asked refund” it has only been 6 days. Should I report him to my bank or say a few things to get him moving faster? Jack please, I’m begging you to help me. I really am interested in doing the affiliate and I’m not in a hurry, I have studied this SEO and do have a BA in business. Thank you in advance.

On the other hand, Wealthy Affiliate will be most worth it if you are a beginner to affiliate marketing and have no idea how or where to start. There is an overload of information on the internet and while you can probably find everything you need to know online, they are not in a very structured format - hence one value is the step-by-step tutorials and guides that Wealthy Affiliate has to cater to people of varying levels of experience (even if you are a complete non-tech person.
Thank you for the reply. I’d like as many members on WA to review as many of my articles as possible, specially when starting out. As technology and contents are changing constantly faster than ever, how difficult would you say is the update of new and fresh contents on the sites are? Can I get 1 on 1 help from as many members in WA as I could reach as premium member? Out of curiosity, how many hours a week would you recommend doing WA to be some income(Say maybe $1000/per month?), within 3 to 6 months? Also, what niches do you write about, if you don’t mind me asking?

I am a student. I have a goal of making about $100,000-$200,000(+)/year within the next 2/3 years with multiple income streams. I already am with an marketing company and they have given me 5/6 mini websites. But I want to have as much income streams as possible in other niches, along with the online business I have already. I have some idea about generating traffic to my mini websites, but I want to know how to convert the traffics into sales and leads. Do You think that’s possible if I join with wealthy affiliate? I am not really looking for money right now, just something that I can legitimately built up within 2/3 years of time. Also I noticed the WA premium membership allows upto 25 website domain or unlimited free websites; I am not sure. do I have to buy each of the domains if I sign up as a premium member? Also, in your opinion, how many articles minimum should an website on WA have to have good ranking? I am a total novice in article writing for business purposes and website building. Please let me know. Thanks!
Sir, I did not join under your referral link as I could not find your site before my joining. As an Indian I am very eager to get a “Free Starter Account”. Please advice me what should I do. If you advice me to re-join under your link. I can do it provided there is no problem in TOS. Sir, please help me. If I am successful to my online job I assure you to upgrade my account into Premium. Actually I am very sorry to say that I am unable to be a premium member due to financial problem. I have little SEO knowledge and little experience on making websites. So, I shall be highly helpful and pleased if you kindly help me to get a “Free Starter Account”.
I have no marketing talent whatsoever, but, I am happy to know that I can learn marketing talent and skill from Wealthy Affiliate. I do have a desire to make money online, and according to the reputation of Wealthy Affiliate, it seems like a viable choice to enlist their services. However, I have not the slightest idea of what good or service I could market and I’m skeptical that whatever idea I may have has already been done and is more popular and of more use than whatever good or service I have in mind. In this case I like the philosophy “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” I would add that I do have an interest in video games, making a website to encourage consumers on their purchasing decisions and increase their knowledge about video game software and hardware is an inventive suggestion, but isn’t there already many YouTube channels that do just this? Furthermore, even if I made such a website, I wouldn’t want to make money by scamming or much less spamming people with shameless product placements and advertisement placement populating the majority of such a website.
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.
That was correct, everything is included all in 1 place so there is no need to go anywhere else. There have been several WA members that has had adult sites and they did good with them. This shouldn’t be a problem and if this is the niche that you would like to pursue I would advise you to do so. This is your business that you are building and you can choose anything that you would like.
Hey, a coworker at my part time job mentioned the ameriplan job and I’m still on the fence but I came across this website. Is there good money within the video games or cooking areas of this as those are my two main hobbies. I do have a jewelry business that I started on facebook but it’s not really going anywhere at the moment,however that is a hobby as well, so I was wondering about the video game or cooking areas of those are profitable or not? Also wondering about the pay rate is just compiled monthly or can you choose different timeframes based on traffic? Thanks 🙂
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.
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.

I read your review and I want to join the Program .But I’m from Bangladesh and I clicked on the special link you gave in the article which took me to WA page where it said $19 for the first month ,but when I went to pay ,it’s saying Free starter accounts are not available but showing $49 for premium membership. wasn’t I supposed to pay $19 for my first month for clicking through your link?

Wealthy Affiliate is an amazing platform. I signed up for it a few months ago and I love the environment and appreciate the help from others. The good thing about WA is that no one ever tells you that success comes overnight. You have to work hard to earn your spot in the online world. Sticking to the training and showing passion and patience will lead you to success eventually.
Basically, Wealthy Affiliate teaches you to become a successful Affiliate Marketer. You will learn how to promote other people’s product as well as learn how to promote Wealthy Affiliate if you want to. In Wealthy Affiliate, you really get tonnes of information and knowledge that will bring you from being a novice to an advance marketer. If you follow its step-by-step training and do exactly what you are recommended to do, you will see results very soon.

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:
I’ve noticed that a lot of people who sign up for Wealthy Affiliate are those who are in dire need of financial help. They may have lost a job or may have suffered some other financial setback such as medical issues. The thing is, there’s no reason these people should stay away from Wealthy Affiliate, but many of them have this expectation that they can create a full time income in a matter of weeks or even a few months. That is NOT the case. Remember, it takes an average business 3 years to profit. Fortunately, it will not take that long with an online business, but it will take considerable time and effort. If you need an income source fast, Wealthy Affiliate is not the place to provide that. Instead, Wealthy Affiliate teaches you how to build a real, sustainable online business over a period of time that will also last a long time.
