You don’t have to pay the $47 to make money, it is possible to make money using your free account. However, it will just be more of a challenge to do so. I would suggest that you sign up for your Free account, check out everything that is offered and go from there. There is a 59% discount to all new members which makes it only $19 for your first month, but that is totally up to you. There is no pressure to upgrade to premium at anytime.

Most businesses require startup fees as well as a cash flow to finance the products being sold. However, affiliate marketing can be done at a low cost, meaning you can get started quickly and without much hassle. There are no affiliate program fees to worry about and no need to create a product. Beginning this line of work is relatively straightforward.


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 🙂
One observation I would like to make – When I read WA member comments about being discouraged or that WA is a scam/rip-off. Do you know what I found these folks have in common? They haven’t bothered to go through the training courses. They try to hurry from point A to point Z, overnight. They do not have reasonable expectations. They lack the ability to have perseverance. They have more excuses than goals and they want something for little to no work or investment.
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.
Yes, 2 hours would be a great starting point for you and if this is all the time you can devote to this starting out that’s perfectly fine. No, you wouldn’t need to invest in hosting as this is included with your membership as long as you’re a premium member. Everything you need to get started is included with your membership and there aren’t any costs outside of the premium membership.
These videos would be free for all of my Wealthy Affiliate referrals since I get commission from those. If you're not a wealthyaffiliate members, I would charge a small monthly fee just to weed out the haters who might try to sabotage the site, and to compensate me for the time and effort of recording the videos and explaining each step along the way.
Hey Alex. My name is Aida, from Nairobi, Kenya. This is very informative. Just came across Wealthy Affiliate in my rendezvous around the net. I’ve been in network marketing for about 8 months now…It was mostly exciting but the support system hasn’t been great! Made me start exploring ways of pushing my business through online sales/ leads and somehow landed on WA as one of two options I’ve found to be genuine. Your review is on point. I wouldn’t mind joining your network of Affiliate Marketing. Do you? Let me know how we can partner.

WA members are welcome to review the program, unlike many MLM members. MLMs companies force their members to sign a non-disclosure agreement, meaning that these people will never be able to publicly review and expose the company and its practices. I managed to find a few negative Wealthy Affiliate reviews and complaints online and I came to the conclusion that these reviews were written for personal reasons. Mistakes happen, misunderstanding happens and every single business will have at least one customer who isn’t going to be happy.
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.
You just need to either upload a picture of yourself or you can use the images that WA provides you with. After that take a few minutes and tell us a little bit about you and what you would like to achieve at WA. The more we know about you the better we can help you out. I will be sending you my personal welcome message shortly after you join. I want to set you up for success as much as I can by pointing you in the right direction and getting you started on your first training lesson.
Personally, for me I was able to reach this goal in only 10 short months and my income continues to grow every month. I would suggest that you get the ball rolling by signing up for your FREE account here. Once you have opened your account you should get started by setting up your profile by adding a pic of yourself or using one of the ones WA provides you with. After that, you should write a little something in your description so that the community can get to know you better and offer you the most help.

The reason you got this notification is because the starter membership isn’t available in your country. It is in NO WAY a spam website as they have a very strict spam free policy that you must abide by when you join. You must live in either Nigeria or India as these are the only 2 countries that I know of where the starter membership isn’t available.
Building trust with your audience is paramount in affiliate marketing, and the quickest way to lose trust is to recommend products either you haven’t used before or that aren’t a good fit for your audience. Also make sure you never tell anyone to directly buy a product, you are simply recommending the product. The more helpful you are and the more you make quality recommendations, the more likely your web visitors will come back for your expertise. 
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.
You put these links at the bottom of your review and every time someone click your link and makes a purchase you get paid a commission. This is the basic rundown of what you’ll be doing April and I hope this has helped clear up any confusion you may have had about this. I would get started by creating your Free Starter Account by clicking on the link above under where it says “Get Started Building Your Online Business Today”

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.

One course that will really help you is the course of mastering social engagement. Social media is the best way to succeed in affiliate sales. Once you take this course, you will learn how to get the most success by creating great content and conversions. You will also learn how to keep scaling your content so that it continues to bring in engaged visitors.
You can Get Started For Free by creating a starter account. You are free to remain as a starter member for as long as you would like until you are ready to take your business to the next level by investing in the premium membership. The $299 price that someone below is asking about is WA’s yearly Black Friday sale where you can get an entire year of the best training, tools, and around the clock help and support for pennies a day.

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.


I've seen people posting in the community just to get attention and validation from other members. Those kinds of antics belong on Facebook, not Wealthy Affiliate. Just be careful with what you're posting in the community. Post only when you can help someone or need help. If you find yourself posting to earn likes and street cred, it's time to refocus on building your dream lifestyle.
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.
There is nothing better than taking a hobby or passion and turning it into a full time business. If you cannot think of anything you would like to sell then WA has the Affiliate boot camp with a topic that is already chosen for you. So no matter what direction you decide to go you can get started today for $0 and have a website that you can use to bring in sales. I hope this has answered your question and if you have any more questions or need help getting started let me know.Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to working with you at WA and helping you get started in your own online business.
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.
Getting started working online is the most rewarding thing you could ever do and you can work on this as much as you like. 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
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.
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.
Once you’ve cancelled your account with Wealthy Affiliate, you still have 30 days to transfer your website to another service provider. If you missed that window, you’ll have to continue with your premium membership to get everything activated again. I am certain that your work is still saved in the WA hosting platform, and if you become a premium member again, you can retrieve the information. This process is just like any hosting platform, you have to keep the service running for your website to be active.
Hi Jack, as a member affiliate of WA yourself, do you get a referral commission fee if I was to join via your link? If so how much is the commission and as a basic or free member would I get referral commissions and how much. Please explained and breakdown the commission structure. Also is the commission as a one off or it is recurring every month i.e a percentage of the monthly fees of the members joined via you. Please clarify. Many thanks
Hello Jan, IIU is one of those overpriced scams that I have reviewed in an earlier post. I know it’s kinda late for you now since you have been in for 8 months now with no success. If you would have joined Wealthy Affiliate you would have been well on your way to earning a nice income for yourself by this time. I would highly recommend that you at least check out their Free starter membership and try it out for yourself. I know that you will love it and find that it is the real deal.
Wealthy Affiliate shows you how to build a website around something that you are passionate about and provides you with all the tools, training, and personal 1 on 1 support that you need to get it ranked on the first page of Google. With their step by step training lessons and 4 click website builder, you’ll have everything you need to have a very successful online business up and running in no time.
I found your amazing beard oil case study and as I read through the other parts of your website I realized that I am really interested in Affiliate model. I joined your free email course (which is awesome by the way) and I already picked my niche! Signing up to Wealthy Affiliate tonight because I am ready to jump in and make it happen. I understand that building a business will require time and effort but and I’m ready to invest as much time and effort as possible.
The technology we have available today allows us to massively automate many tasks that had to be manually done only a few years ago. This has reduced the level of technical ability required for people do things like build their own websites, set up landing pages and build lists of subscribers. You can literally build a website within minutes today, even if you have zero technical computer skills.
Be honest. Talk about what you like and don’t like. Be fair and build trust. It will serve you well later. For examples, check out my review posts about Elite Blog Academy and Self Publishing 101. I get emails frequently from people who tell me they decided to purchase one of those courses through my affiliate link because it was the most balanced review they found.
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.

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.

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


How many months/years did it take you to make your first $1000 at WA? What is a good niche to choose initially? Do money making/home business blogs make the most money? And is it advisable for a newbie to start at WA with a money making blog? Other than paying for the wealthy affiliate yearly membership, how much does one have to pay for other things like web hosting, autoresponder, themes, domain name etc? eg how much would you have spent on this website other than what you pay to WA?Is this site hosted by WA? If I already have a website-does it still help to join WA?
It’s free to join these programs and once you join, you will be given your very own affiliate id number. You need to put these affiliate links on your site preferably at the bottom. This way people will have the chance to read your content. If they are interested in learning more, about the product they can click on your affiliate link to purchase the product.
I love WA because they are honest about what it takes to succeed. They don’t lie to people telling them that they can earn quick money by doing these simple things. If you want to succeed online then you have to be willing to work. And WA provides all the tools you need to succeed. Plus, the community of like-minded people is always ready to help. I’d recommend WA to anyone.
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?

You don’t have to pay the $47 to make money, it is possible to make money using your free account. However, it will just be more of a challenge to do so. I would suggest that you sign up for your Free account, check out everything that is offered and go from there. There is a 59% discount to all new members which makes it only $19 for your first month, but that is totally up to you. There is no pressure to upgrade to premium at anytime.

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.
I would suggest that you get started by opening up your FREE starter account here so that you can check out everything WA has to offer you and you get the chance to experience for yourself how awesome WA really is without risking any money. If you like it and you would like to continue on in your training I would highly recommend that you upgrade to the premium membership as it has the most value.
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.
