The program has two (2) different membership levels: the basic and the premium. This is really awesome because you can join without spending a single penny, look around, meet some people, create your own websites (hosting included) and see how it goes. If you love it like I do – you will join Premium for ever more benefits or you could still build an online business using your free starter membership, no strings attached. This alone makes WA so much better than any other program or opportunity – there is no risk of losing money to something that might not work. Put your credit card away and get a free membership!
I have several blogs promoting all different products. The hardest thing I find about affiliate marketing is that once you’ve sold someone something you need to find a new product to sell them. I’ve found that promoting a subscription service where you sign up a customer is a great way to go. This way every time they renew or buy something you get paid. You only have to sell them this once.
I will also be there to help you out if you get stuck or you don’t understand something. I am looking forward to working with you Andrew and helping you get your website setup and ready to go so that you can market your products online. I hope this has helped answer your question and if you have any further questions please let me know and I will be glad to answer them for you.

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.
I would also like to see a forum built into the platform. Wealthy Affiliate has a unique way of building a community and I understand why they shy away from a standard forum type of format. Instead, they want to promote live chat sessions, blog posts, private messaging, and public questions where people can comment below. This type of setup is pretty cool at times, but I also do enjoy forums where I can just browse by topic.
Thank you for your reply. Does every one of my domains(free & purchased) must have some articles in order to make sales? Say, if I were to join Amazon Affiliate program for electronics, there also needs to be articles about electronics products display on my domain? Also how long does the articles(also how many words just about?) have to be to be ranked in the first page on google? Also, can I borrow from other articles about electronics and put it in my articles? I may be joining the WA in about 1 week, so I am trying to gather as much last minute information as possible. Please let me know. Thanks again.
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.
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.

I am a Wealthy Affiliate member and I can honestly tell you this review is fantastic. I love the fact that you are upfront about this not being a get rich quick scheme. I think it is so important for people to know that they will get out of it what they put into it. There are a lot of resources available, including the training, and just a lot of very knowledgeable people. There are webinars, live chat, support. It’s up to the individual as to how much effort they are going to put into building a website with quality content. This review is very thorough and I don’t think you left any stone unturned. I also love to see that you are willing to share your income so people can see this works. Thanks for sharing, you definitely motivated me to get to work!
Just take amazon as an example. In order to earn money from Amazon, you have to sign up as a partner with them. Once you have signed up, you will be given a unique affiliate link. You can promote this link by placing it in your own website, etc. When people clicks on that link, and purchase something, you make a commission from the successful sale. You do not need to handle the transaction nor are you selling stuff. You are connecting potential buyers to retailers.
Creating a unique tracking ID for an Amazon link is easy. Simply log in to your Amazon affiliate dashboard, click “Account Settings” at the very top on the right, then click “Manage Tracking IDs”. From there you can make a new tracking ID so you can track which web page/campaign sold what.  You can learn more about using Amazon’s Tracking IDs here.
Also, Wealthy Affiliate primarily focuses on building niche websites and driving traffic to them through SEO. If you are more inclined towards another method of affiliate marketing such as through creating membership subscription sites, running e-commerce or drop-shipping sites, or getting traffic through solo ads, then Wealthy Affiliate will not be as worth it to you too.

I’m retired after 33 years as a civil servant with the FDA, handicapped (in a wheelchair). I love my pc, tablets, and surfing the www. I live in central Arkansas and I purchase lots from Amazon and love it. I once had a city website (no longer do) for our city and used Amazon’s affiliate program; however my understanding is that Amazon no longer allows affiliates in Arkansas. Is that still true? I love art (painting, both digital and traditional), reading, photography and surfing the web. I spent my last 10-15 years with the FDA working in the IT arena with it training, helpdesk and website creating and support.


Contact the company directly. If you use a product or service and want to recommend it but you can’t find evidence of an affiliate program, consider approaching them and asking if they are willing to set one up (maybe with your help). Highlight your audience and the value of your recommendation. Explain that an affiliate program is simply rewarding happy customers (you!) for promoting, and they don’t have to pay until a sale is made.

I came across WA after looking into AmeriPlan, as I can see many across the board have also done. I am familiar with Affiliate Marketing, and even bought a kit from another company off a late night television promo many years ago, that I have yet to do anything with. The lure of making money online is pretty intriguing, but do have some questions/concerns I am hoping you can help answer. How do income taxes work with this company? Does WA take care of any of that, or would I be considered an independant contractor, or something similar? I will admit that taxes have been one of the major reasons stopping me over the years from doing a home based business. Also, I enjoy a lot of manly, & even not so manly things. I worry it would be difficult to narrow down a true profitable target audience. My passions include ATV’s, side by sides, products used in this sport, etc. Essential Oils, weightloss (I have lost 185 lbs), food, hunting, fishing, trucks, knives, music, toys, religeous items, survival tools, flash lights, and quite a bit more. What have you personally seen be the most profitable over the years? I have many passions, drives, and loves, that I could truly write about for years to come. Thanks so much for your help!

2nd tier.  If you are an affiliate for a particular program and you refer others to sign up for that affiliate program, a 2nd tier program will pay you when the affiliates you referred make sales. For example, I am an affiliate for Ultimate Bundles. If you join their affiliate program via my 2nd tier affiliate link here. I will get a small percentage of any sales you make going forward.
Hello Chris, I am planning to join Wealthy Affiliate as a premium. But I am a 33-yr old woman who does not have a common sense like I get from most people. I am also a woman who does not have that much intellectual capacity. So I’m not sure how much my brain can comprehend and how much my brain can take all the information from WA. Do you think I should just give it a try?
Hey Hugh, You definitely do not need to be a professional writer to be able to make money online. Writing has never been my strong point and I suffered with this all through my high school years and I pretty much hated writing. I didn’t let that stop me from achieving success online and I don’t think anyone should let that stop them from living their dreams. I am living proof that anyone can do this no matter what your skill level is or if you don’t know the first thing about this business. In the year and a half I have been doing this I have learned more than I ever have in my entire life. I owe it all to Wealthy Affiliate and their awesome training lessons and their willingness to help anyone setup a business online.
Wow, what a thorough, and detailed review of Wealthy Affiliate. You have answered all of my questions, and then some. I now feel as though I have the information I need to make an educated decision. I am amazed at all of the benefits and training that Wealthy Affiliate provides, and 2 free websites to start out with. Anyone that has an interest in this program needs to see this review. Well done, and thanks for sharing. Tom
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.
I started a blog which I plan to monetize only through affiliate marketing and my own products, no ads. I’ve been working on building an audience for my blog, for about 1 year and a half, many people think is maybe too much time, but I just want to make sure that I build enough trust with my readers before I start to try to make them buy something.
I openly disclose the fact that I will receive a small affiliate commission if someone decides to join WA Premium using one of my affiliate link. There is no compensation for starter members. I often tell people that they are free to join WA without using my link but I encourage them to do so if they liked my review and the effort I put into explaining what it is and what it does. If someone thinks I don’t deserve being compensated, they can join directly through WA main site, without using my links, no hard feelings. The goal here is to answer all the questions about WA.
