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.
Once you become a premium member you’ll be able to contact many experienced online marketers who have been making a living from this for many years. (Many of them are making 6 figures a year or more) If you are looking to make $1,000 per month within your first 3-6 months I would recommend that you devote at least 5-6 hours a day to this if you possibly can.
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?
Premium membership costs you $19 the first month (if you take advantage of the 59% discount during the first 7 days after joining) and $47 the following months. You may cancel at any time, if you wish to do so. If you decide to pay on a yearly basis, the Premium membership will cost you $359. That would save you $205 than if you paid $47 per month during a year ($47 x 12 months = $564; $564 – $359 = $209 in savings, seems like a good deal!).
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.

I don't have time to la-dee-dah here. Just tell me where to go! If I feel that I need to take a few steps back I will. But no. Kyle HIMSELF made a rude comment to me. This girl suggested that I watch the Alphabet Soup section of the training, that it would help. I said this was for keyword help, and I don't need that. Kyle said that if I didn't know what keywords were for, then I had no business being on the internet. Excuse me??? I was simply stating that SHE did not understand, and led me somewhere I ALREADY KNEW ABOUT. He was rude. And within seconds revoked my ability to respond with his powerful finger. 
Do they value and help their affiliates? Some affiliate programs do an exceptional job of communicating with their affiliates, notifying them of upcoming sales, offering marketing advice or tools, offering contents and prizes during promotions and more. These types of affiliate programs are a pleasure to be a part of. Ultimate Bundles is an excellent example.

You should definitely do this if you want to try it out at a discount, but this is totally up to you man. I can totally relate to you having trouble affording an extra $50 a month because I used to live that way for practically my whole life. All I can say is if you go through the training and follow it exactly how it’s laid out and take action you will start to see results.

Hi,I have been contemplating joining WA for a while now. My life circumstances have changed recently. I want and need to begin an at home business, and I think WA will help me get there. I just signed up for the premium membership and am very excited to begin. But thats the $64000 question…Where to begin? Thank you for this review site info. It was very helpful to help me decide take the plunge. 🙂
Hi Jack, thank you for this information. I was just about to click on the SFM programme, which looked really good to me, but I was wondering what the Digital Business Lounge and Digital Experts Academy would cost. From what I read in your information about them, it would cost me too much money to progress. Is Wealthy Affiliate your own business or are you just recommending it? Also, SFM say you actually get someone to talk to, which impressed me, but I wouldn’t want to wait two weeks when I had a question. Look forward to hearing from you.
There are many, many ways that you can learn how to make money using the training at Wealthy Affiliate. But first you need to ask yourself what are you passionate about or what are some of your hobbies? To answer your question without going into lots of details, WA will teach you how to take your hobbies or passions and turn them into an online business.
I have just talked to Kyle(Co owner of WA) and he said that India is one of the countries where the starter membership isn’t available. The only other option would be if you could select a different country and try to join that way. If that doesn’t work then you would need to go premium from the start. You can get your first month at a highly discounted rate of only $19 for your first month.
Thanks! by time I would finish reading your article i have made my conclusion of what to say about it. I say, it is because of your honesty that is your success in this field. You tell it like it is. You know, before starting to read your article, i was in kind of hurry to move on but every next words keep pulling me like a magnet until i read all of it. Great info, Great perspective, Great lessons to apply.
I would love to teach you everything I know about how to get started in affiliate marketing and how to grow your business a little more every day. I would suggest you get started by opening your FREE account by clicking on the join now button above. I will be contacting you shortly after you join to make sure you are finding your way around the community and answer any questions you may have when you are getting started.
There are a few different payment options that Wealthy Affiliate will accept. These include Paypal as being the safest and most popular one. If you don’t have a Paypal account you can sign up for one for free by going to Paypal.com. Besides taking regular Visa or Master cards you could also do an e-check from your bank and pay for your WA subscription that way.
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 would not recommend this company at all. Wealthy affiliate charge a fortune for their training modules/products. I have been bombarded with emails that are basically spam about 5 times a day since I created an account. I just cannot get Kyle and the other team members to stop sending me emails. After signing for an account I decided to go for a cheaper course with DS dropshipper.
Merchants receiving a large percentage of their revenue from the affiliate channel can become reliant on their affiliate partners. This can lead to affiliate marketers leveraging their important status to receive higher commissions and better deals with their advertisers. Whether it’s CPA, CPL, or CPC commission structures, there are a lot of high paying affiliate programs and affiliate marketers are in the driver’s seat.
Affiliate marketing is also called "performance marketing", in reference to how sales employees are typically being compensated. Such employees are typically paid a commission for each sale they close, and sometimes are paid performance incentives for exceeding objectives.[20] Affiliates are not employed by the advertiser whose products or services they promote, but the compensation models applied to affiliate marketing are very similar to the ones used for people in the advertisers' internal sales department.
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.
Know when (and when not) to use Viglinks and Skimlinks. If you applied to an affiliate program but were denied, you might be able to still be an affiliate for that advertiser through a secondary affiliate program like VigLink or Skimlinks. Basically, they themselves are affiliates and will split their affiliate commission with you if you put their affiliate link in your content for an advertiser. Obviously, the commission rate is lower for you in this case, so if you ever are accepted into the advertiser’s affiliate program directly, immediately switch from using VigLink / Skimlinks affiliate links to your own.
You should be able to Register At The Premium Level just fine. On the order screen where it asks you to pick your country, I would try and select another country from the list that is supported and see if you are able to join by doing this. If this still doesn’t help I could send Kyle(The Co-Owner of WA)a PM and inform him of this and see what he can do about it.
I am sure you hear this a lot from people but I am going to say it anyway. I am 66 years old and I am looking for something that I can do when I retire. I have looked at and tried several online business opportunities and I have been burned and disappointed not to say frustrated. Wealthy Affiliate sounds like something I would like but I am just a little leery because of past experience. I understand I can join for free but is it totally free or are there any hidden charges? I have had that happen before and it sucks.
This is actually the perfect schedule for you to work on this. If you can work on this 4 days a week you will be getting the foundation of your business in place and making some really nice progress along the way. I think this is going to work out really nicely for you Sameer if you are willing to work hard and follow simple step by step directions.

Thanks for all the information I am slowly working my way through your list of do’s and donts! ! I’ve been approached by a website that wants to develop editorial content for my blog featuring home improvement tips from their”national client” and pay me $40 a year for reviewing and publishing their content. Boy, I am just not sure how this all works? Any words for when we are approached by others to write for our blogs?
Also, you wrote a review on WA and on your recommendation I joined them, did not do anything with it and re-joined them a few years later again! Some months ago i was reading your website again and came across your reviews in particular “Proven Amazon Course” by Jim Cockrum. Consequently, I purchased his book and shortly thereafter I purchased the ‘PAC’ course! (You should have received — I hope — some commissions from all of these!?)
I will be getting in contact with you within 60 minutes of you joining to make sure you arrived OK and to answer any questions you may have. I really am looking forward to working with you Abdel and helping you build an online business you can be proud of. I hope this has answered your questions Abdel and if you have any other questions please let me know and I would love to answer them for you and help you out.
Understand where people are at in the buying cycle and promote accordingly. Spend the most time sharing affiliate links where people are ready to buy. For example, you can share affiliate links on Pinterest, but most people are not on Pinterest to buy but to look. As such, focusing your affiliate marketing strategy on Pinterest might not be the best use of your time. Review posts, for example, might be better at tipping people over the line into buying.
Once you decide to go premium you won’t be able to go back to the free starter membership. The starter membership is there to get you started and you aren’t able to revert back to it, but if you decide that the premium membership isn’t for you then you can cancel your membership at any time. To do this, simply go into your account settings and scroll to the bottom of the page and click stop billing and close my account.
As for people viewing through comments, I know you many have quite a few questions. I know Frank has already clarified that it works! Many may ask if it is worth the money. I think you will be the judge of that! I encourage you to use up the first free days and then use the $19 a month deal for your first month. Only then will you really understand how it is worth it! You learn so much more, and it’s almost like being enrolled in a college class, without time limits, and with a HUGE community of support to help you! I remember that any time I got frustrated, there was always someone to go to! I had about 5 or 6 that I constantly went to! So if you afraid to join because you are totally new to any of this, DON’T BE! I was too, and I am very proud of what all I learned! There is no better place to start than WA!
This is a security measure and it’s in place for a reason. There are many scams that come out of these countries as well as lots of people committing fraud. This is there to protect the other members of the community as well. If you would like to join as a Premium member you are still entitled to your 59% discount on your first month so that you can give things a try before you make the decision as to whether this is something you are interested in doing.
Besides all of the training online at Wealthy Affiliate that you can get, you have access to lots of support from people who have already succeeded. One of the best parts of this program is you have access to working with highly successful individuals like yourself just by entering into a chat with them from your Dashboard. Anytime you need any help, just ask. When you work with successful people you are more likely to succeed yourself.
You also should not join Wealthy Affiliate if you don’t enjoy the community / social aspect of it. A huge part of Wealthy Affiliate is the ability to communicate with other members. It’s a “help and be helped” community. If you have no interest in setting up your profile, asking questions, supporting others, chatting in the live chat sessions, or doing any sort of participation, you will not get the full benefit of the service.
Of course you can say, well just compete. That’s the essence or free enterprise. But then, realistically, what are the chances of still succeeding in this WA promotion niche? There are already a lot of veterans way, way ahead — like YOU. For a newbie appreciating how excellently you have developed your promotion site, it looks like a very tall order to come up with something better and competitive. And mind you, you are not the only excellent site around promoting WA.
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. 
A: Wealthy Affiliate Premium is available to everyone and in every country. However, Wealthy Affiliate Free Membership is not available to 7 countries at the moment: Bangladesh, Egypt, India, Nigeria, Pakistan, Philippines, Vietnam. I do not own Wealthy Affiliate and I don’t know why this decision was made so I can’t offer any other details or support on this subject. If you live in one of these seven countries you can still join the premium membership of WA at any time at a regular price of $49 per month.
If you can follow simple directions and take action on the daily tasks there’s no reason why you won’t be successful with this program. I have been making a full time living from this for close to 2 years now and my income is constantly growing more each day. Also my spelling and grammar were horrible when I first started but I didn’t let that stop me from reaching my goals.
Hey Matthew, there are many scams out there that promise you the world but have little to nothing to offer you. I’m glad that you have decided to get started with the starter membership at Wealthy Affiliate and I look forward to working with you man on building your own online business. If you need my help or have any questions feel free to leave me a message and I would be glad to help you out.

To answer your question about what are you getting paid for. You are starting up your own online business and learning how to build a website from scratch. There are thousands of people everyday that are looking for reviews of different products (just like you did for Ameriplan) They usually like to read a review of something before they buy it. This is where you could come in with your website about a passion or hobby of yours. There are affiliate programs for just about anything that is sold online.
If you haven’t done so already I would get started by signing up for your FREE account by clicking on the “Become A Member” button above, fill out a few details and you are in. I will be getting in contact with you within your first hour to see how things are going for you and to answer any additional questions you may have getting started. I really am looking forward to working with you Adam and helping you build a business that you will be proud of.
OMG Machines is not a true blue affiliate course. The main thing they teach is client SEO consulting. Their affiliate section isn't that big or robust. They focus way more on client SEO. Client SEO is what they call it when a business pays you monthly for you to rank their website on the first page of Google. It's cool because you can make money fast, but you're helping to build someone else's asset, not your own like with affiliate sites.
To be honest Wealthy Affiliate appealed to me when I first joined in 2007 because they also never promised any riches overnight. They never bombarded me with pictures of guys in rented mansions or driving rented Lamborghinis. They actually did a great job explaining that building a successful business online requires hard work and a time investment.

Yes you can use the websites that WA provides you with to market just about any product or service out there. There is unlimited potential to promote a variety of different things and the training they provide on how to get traffic and sales is the best that I have ever seen and I have tried hundreds of different programs. No matter what business you are in I believe that everyone can benefit from the service that WA provides. I would suggest that you sign up for your FREE account and get started on the training. If you need help getting everything setup let me know and I will be glad to offer you a helping hand.
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.

I agree that the internet can be a scary place when it comes to trying to find a legit place to learn how to make money online. It doesn’t matter if you have never touched a computer in your whole life or how old you are. If you can follow simple directions and have a determination to learn everything you can about Internet marketing, It will be impossible for you to fail. If I can learn this, I know that anyone can and I would love to take you by the hand and show you how to get started.


It doesn’t matter if you are a complete newbie to online marketing or if you an advanced marketer. Wealthy Affiliate caters to a variety of different categories of people. I’m so glad that you have made the decision to become a member of this awesome community by opening your free account. Let me know how things are going for you Mozie and if I can help you out in any way.
Websites consisting mostly of affiliate links have previously held a negative reputation for underdelivering quality content. In 2005 there were active changes made by Google, where certain websites were labeled as "thin affiliates".[29] Such websites were either removed from Google's index or were relocated within the results page (i.e., moved from the top-most results to a lower position). To avoid this categorization, affiliate marketer webmasters must create quality content on their websites that distinguishes their work from the work of spammers or banner farms, which only contain links leading to merchant sites.
One important thing about affiliate marketing – or doing any business on the Internet for that matter – is to have patience. This is why you need to be affiliated with other affiliate marketers as well on a personal basis as the journey can sometimes be lonely. Being a part of a community gives you courage and the confidence to face difficulties. Also, you can learn a lot when you interact with other marketers. Join forums like Digital Point and Warrior Forum where you get to interact with the best of the affiliate marketing community.
If you really are looking for a way to start a business online you have came to the right place. For at least 20 years or more I have been looking for an opportunity like Internet marketing. I have also lost thousands of dollars to scams as well, and I was starting to think there wasn’t anything out there. I can assure you that making money online is real. I would like to help you out and get you started down the right path online.
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.
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!
