As a member of Wealthy Affiliate, I highly recommend it myself. I also agree that in order to derive benefit or results, one has to put in sufficient time and energy. But other than that, with the help of WA training and support, the sky’s pretty much the limit. One can have 0 traffic or 100,000 visitors per month depending on how well one follows the instructions or training. I admit I myself have previously not followed all the instructions closely and spent too much wasted time on things that don’t matter very much (at least not in early stage of game) such as obsessing over which WordPress template to use, but now I remind myself to stay on track more and follow instructions.
I heard so many good things with Wealthy Affiliate and am a current member, although I’ve been going through some of the videos and asking help from mentors, it’s better to have another helping hand and I’m glad I come across to you. Can you tell me more about how I can be more successful with WA? Oh, btw, I already got so far as making my own website although I just went along with the WA niche but I still need more help with how to make my contents more understandable and friendly browsing. Thank you for your help.
Don’t feel bad though when I first started I did the same exact thing that you did. I posted ads and click bank links but I got no sales. I would suggest that when you join under me you use a new email and username that way you can start over fresh and I can get you started down the right path. To answer your last question, there really isn’t no answer for this because everyone is different.
Individual sellers and companies offering products or services have to deal with their consumers and ensure they are satisfied with what they have purchased. Thanks to the affiliate marketing structure, you’ll never have to be concerned with customer support or customer satisfaction. The entire job of the affiliate marketer is to link the seller with the consumer. The seller deals with any consumer complaints after you receive your commission from the sale.
Unfortunately, the starter membership isn’t available to people in the Philippines due to many security issues and fraud that comes out of that country. However, you are still entitled to the 59% discount off of your first month Ivy as well as gaining access to my valuable bonuses when you join through me. I will be there to help you get started and guide you every step of the way as you begin to build your online business.
Thanks for stopping by. As regards your question, unfortunately this is not a get rich quick scheme. It’s probable that you don’t see any earnings on your first months. You will need to invest time building your site from scratch: this means publishing good articles, creating a nice layout, etc. If you want to accelerate the process you can outsource your content and SEO but that will cost you more money.
A: Unfortunately the whole industry of internet marketing has earned quite a negative reputation. This happened mostly because of dishonest folks who would scam people by promising to reveal a secret shortcut to millions for a simple fee of $197 (or $39, or $57, or $1,997). As I often mention throughout my blog and my podcast, there isn’t an easy way to riches. What makes Wealthy Affiliate very attractive is their starter membership. With this FREE membership you only get access to a small part of WA training but it’s more than enough to show you the tremendous value you will get inside, without risking a single penny of your hard-earned money. The simple fact of letting people in for free eliminates any possibility of Wealthy Affiliate being a scam.

You aren’t bothering me one bit and that’s why I’m here to help you out. I could send Kyle a PM myself and inform him of this issue. He usually gets back to me pretty quickly. What would you like your username and password to be for your account? I would also need to know what email address and the first and last name you would like to use for your account?
Fantastic. I am floundering in information overload from WA. I am a premium member and have been through the gauntlet of being discouraged and quit. I went to another online marketing company and found that what I had was a hundred times better with WA. I went back and discovered things that I hadn’t found the first time I was there. Yes, I am not in the money game yet but with WA’s humbleness and wonderful help I intend to keep on trucking. Your site is the best motivation that can be had to people who are struggling with the learning process.
I wouldn’t recommend borrowing articles from elsewhere as you could get into some serious legal trouble if the author finds out about it. Google will also punish you for having duplicate content on your site and won’t give you any rankings. I’m glad to hear that you may be Joining WA in a week and please feel free to ask as many questions as you need to before you join.
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.
Hello Jack. I trust all is well with you. Please help me with a question I have. I would like to join wealthy affiliate after reading about your experiences with said company. I am new and know nothing about this business venture. I think, if I am correct being an affiliate is you are selling something on-line to the on-line public. And then you receive a commission for your sale. What I would like to know is after joining WA and studying their programs, you are set up and ready to go, where do you go to find products to promote and sell? And how do you know what products to promote? Is it like guessing , such as I think this product sounds like it ought to sell well and so on… please answer this one question. T hanks Jack. Have a good day I reside in Vancouver, British Columbia CANADA.
I don't promote WA and the training pushed me in a direction to promote something else. The idea is that you can create a business online working withing a category that you have passion in. For me that is woodworking, but for others this is likely soemthing completely different. There are lots of directions you can head. People that say that the training is all about promoting the same company obviously have not gone through the training. I didn't get a sense of that.
Wealthy Affiliate is also an excellent place for those who want to have everything they will need in one place. From market research tools to web building tools to domain registration, website hosting, website backups, site security, and much more, it’s all in one place. AND all of those tools come with complete step-by-step training videos as well as a support community that can help you if you’re having trouble. If you don’t want to pay 10 different companies for 10 different services you’ll need to run your business, sign up with Wealthy Affiliate to get it all in one place. Wealthy Affiliate literally provides absolutely everything you’ll need to succeed with your online business.
When I first stumbled upon Wealthy Affiliate in 2007 I had to pay the full price just so I could see what it looks like and what it really is. This program has changed a lot in the past 11 years and you can try it out completely Free. The starter account is $0, no catch, no credit card required – so you could decide if it’s right for you without risking a single dime of your hard earned money.
Yes it is definitely not a get rich quick scheme, it takes A LOT of work – which is what I try to get across in this review. You need to be comfortable with doing a lot of work for 6 months and not get paid a dime. That is not something that many people can follow through with. But it is, unfortunately, part of the process, and it can lead to very satisfying results later on.
Wow! Where to start first/ Great review and very detailed. I liked the part about how you started. The review itself was laid out in a very in order and organized manner. Very easy to understand and I felt as though you were talking face to face with me. I liked your reasons to join and reasons not to join. The whole decision process is pretty straight forward for the reader once he or she has finished reading the review. Nice work, and well done.
First of all the allegations of a pyramid scheme. Since you have looked up the definition you probably know that a pyramid scheme requires downlines and several levels to the pyramid. That’s something you won’t find at WA. Many people join directly through the home page without being referred. Others might join under an affiliate and that affiliate earns a commission. There are no levels. Amazon’s got the exact same business strategy, does that make them a pyramid scheme? Some new members even get upset when they find out that Wealthy Affiliate is not an MLM. These people leave rather fast because they realize they need to actually build a real business instead of just recruiting.
Will my target audience realistically buy this now, or at a different time? Be sensitive to sales cycles and seasons. Maybe you should avoid holidays (when people are away from their computers, like July 4 in the U.S.) or maybe you should target holidays (like the day after Thanksgiving), but know the difference. Again, know your audience. Plan your content accordingly.
Before you get into the thick of things, you need to select a niche that you are comfortable with. It is best if you have some formal learning in it, but it is perfectly all right to be a newbie to the sector, as long as it is a topic that you like researching on and writing about. To be an affiliate marketer, you need your own platform – a website or a blog where you can post links and advertise your chosen products.
Cost per click was more common in the early days of affiliate marketing but has diminished in use over time due to click fraud issues very similar to the click fraud issues modern search engines are facing today. Contextual advertising programs are not considered in the statistic pertaining to the diminished use of cost per click, as it is uncertain if contextual advertising can be considered affiliate marketing.
You will be writing the articles yourself on your own website (Free or paid) by following along with the training and completing the daily tasks for each lesson. By the time you are finished with the first course you will have the foundation of your site up and should have all of your core pages written out and published. As far as articles and domain revisions I would advise you to continuously keep your website up to date and always make sure you have fresh new content coming out at all times.
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.
On WA coaching material there is no separate indexing of the "lessons". A point missed can be found again but not by going through any master index which would be crossreferencing ideas & locations...thus depriving us of a a way to get back to where ideas are first presented in the training. Without that we are forced to stumble through videos again and again which is very frustrating & time consuming activity or we must ask people instead. This flaw in the training presentation makes me wonder if the clumsier and slower learning which might result...is as "rewarding" to the CEO (in the form of longer lasting subscriptions) as is is "punishing" to the member?
This Is Ok in my mind, because it is Your right, Im glad we can express ourselves. Im also glad You took the time for yourself, to look into WA. I hope you will Understand my comment is on the otherside of yours. Im not a robot in any shape or form. I believe with all my experiance that its a good program and we both took our time here to express ourselves. We both deserve the respect for our opinion's. I respect yours You have a great life,my best wishes to your success JB
You may have heard of ClickBank, one of the oldest and most popular affiliate networks. A billion-dollar company, ClickBank specializes in digital products like e-books and software, as well as membership sites. If you are comfortable selling information and don’t want the management and administration hassles of “real” businesses, this may be a good starting point. Its commissions can be anywhere from 10% all the way to 75%.
Hi Scott I found your website and basically loved what I seen. I’m just having a few issues, when I try to sign up it says it already have an account (which I do not this is my very first time). But I still took the step as if I previously signed up before and then it said I don’t even have and account with you guys, which is what I figured, so I’m a little lost and its not letting me sign up at all. 🙁 Please Help
I don’t recall saying that I sold medical supplies from Amazon, but I do have a website that I sell gaming headsets and other gaming accessories from Amazon which I make money from. It’s actually not as hard as you might think, and I’ll explain how it works in a few easy steps. You just need to pick a hobby or interest of yours and build a website around this hobby. You then need to attract visitors to your website and promote products and services that are related to this hobby.
Certainly, I think I can contribute a little to the community. Since 2010, I successfully created two online stores, and with these two stores have a 5 digit monthly income, working from home. But today, this business model is not scalable. Today, I have to have some employees working for me (all of them in their own homes), because I have many tasks to fulfill: call center, logistics, inventory management, product manufacturing, supplier management, and other things take all my time. So working with affiliate marketing today is my highest priority.
1.When you join their affiliate program you will be given your very own affiliate id which is called your affiliate link. You will need to put this link on your website. When someone clicks on your affiliate link on your site to Microsofts website, this will install a cookie on their computer which is what is used to track where people are coming from.
I would recommend that you sign up for your starter membership here and see what WA can do for you. I will also be there to help you out every step of the way and answer any questions you may have. If you have any other questions for me or need a hand getting started please let me know and I would be more than happy to answer your questions and help you out.
I’m just really lost on how the money is made and how you can provide discounts. I haven’t looked into online reviews Or anything as of yet. I was looking at different articles on your website (which is almost exactly what I’m interested in: Reviews, awesome deals found online, general help, parenting, bitching haha, etc) and I am interested BUT being in a financial situation, and having 4 kids, I can’t afford to lose any money (we are living paycheck to paycheck and barely making it! I’m not even sure “making it” is anywhere close to the phrase I should be using!) so I need to be 100% when making the decision to join and If I feel confidant in what I’m being told, I KNOW I will kick ass at whatever I need to do. I have zero doubt.Thanks so much!
It’s actually $47 and as I have said below in my other comment. You can get your first month for only $19 and get complete access to the premium membership at this discounted price. The reason why there is a recurring fee is because each and every month you are going to be getting new training and updated courses about how to start a business online. This is a subscription website and you are going to be trained on how to make money online. It is also an online college and you are paying for an education but at a much discounted price.
