I have one more question. I wanna know how long does it takes to go through all those lessons once I sign up and also can I create our website right away after going through those lessons. I know it takes long to understand everything and be an expert like you. Since last two days I am going through all this website and getting more info about Affiliate Marketing. I have too many question regarding sales and how this exactly works but I will ask you once I sign up and I hope that many of my questions will be answered once I go through those lessons.
Scott, I’m right there with you. Wealthy Affiliate is a great company if you want to work hard. And NO you WILL NOT get rich quickly. It is a process. And you HAVE to like to write because you generate the content for the site yourself. So if you are not interested in writing, then Wealthy Affiliate is NOT for you. One of the biggest things that I like is that you don’t have to pay a cent to start making money. Yes, they do offer a premium option and it is better in the long run, but you will have no problem making money with the free account.
Hi Brady, When you join the $0 Free membership it is totally possible to start making money as a Free member. I have seen it happen. It is just more challenging because you don’t have as much training and tools as a premium member does. The starter membership gives you the opportunity to check out everything that Wealthy Affiliate has to offer. It also gives you your first 7 days of Free premium help and support from thousands of successful members including the owners Kyle and Carson. You don’t need to be premium to start making money, it just makes it a whole lot easier and it speeds up the process.
An influencer is an individual who holds the power to impact the purchasing decisions of a large segment of the population. This person is in a great position to benefit from affiliate marketing. They already boast an impressive following, so it’s easy for them to direct consumers to the seller’s products through social media posts, blogs, and other interactions with their followers. The influencers then receive a share of the profits they helped to create.
I repeatedly asked, in the general forum, for help on finding out how to do what I was led there to do. I had NO interest in creating a Wordpress blog page that would promote Wealthy Affiliates. And yet, this was all they seemed to cover. I kept asking questions and received several responses to just go through the training. For what? To buy into the gimmick? Tell me EXACTLY which training of the 10 to go to so that I don't waste my time. After all, you're selling yourself to me for me to buy into your membership at some point.
Now I work much less. I try to put in an 8 hour day but with distractions, hobbies, etc I probably do about 3-4 hours of hard work per day. I’m trying not to get too lazy though, because running an affiliate website does take consistent work to stay relevant. It’s not a total “retire early and do nothing” type of plan. You gotta work to grow your business!
I used wealthy affiliate for 3 months and it was confusing. It is more of a social club. The training was vague as they wanted you to go to their forum and ask the members for answers. The forum would not answer my questions most of the time or I couldn't find the answer on their website. I had a disappointing experience with their support and they were very rude and would not help and they should have. I am sure they are overwhelmed with questions and don't have the time or just don't have the disposition for customer service. Anyway, it was a complete waste of my time. I have since joined another affiliate marketing education site and it has been a wonderful and enlightening experience and their support is fast to respond, have a friendly disposition and answer my questions thoroughly. So, in summary their are a lot better alternatives out there besides wealthy affiliate.
The fit must be right between you and the merchant who is going to benefit from your promotional efforts, or it simply won’t work. The easiest way to begin with affiliate marketing is to select an affiliate network. Many affiliate networks exist, some which are tied to well-known companies like Amazon, Google, and Apple, while others specialize in specific types of products and services.
Affiliates should try their best to make it easy for their readers to easily navigate to a brand’s site via an affiliate link. The more people click on that link, the better for everyone because 1) the more people you refer to a company, the more commissions you can potentially earn, and 2) those you’re referring will be able to improve their lives in some way thanks to the product you recommend.
Hi Scott, I just posted this question, maybe you can input some feedback as well, I would appreciate it…thanks! Hi, Maybe I missed something….the print is so small I couldn’t read the content…Just finished going through lesson ten and my question is: how will money be generated off this website? are there any links to redirect people to buy a specific ‘How To Reduce Belly Fat’ product or is it that just by accessing the website you get paid or how does it work? Please explain…Thank you!!:
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.
Wealthy Affiliate does concentrate on production of high quality content which in my opinion is the MOST important part of SEO and has always been. Learning “SEO tricks” is not a good idea as most of these things are temporary. However proper SEO (great and consistent content) is not a secret but a good way to get ranked. The websites where I produced high quality content are all ranking well and have been for many years. I am fairly sure it’ll stay that way.
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.
Wealthy Affiliate is an outstanding platform to learn how to build an online business. Kyle and Carson are extremely helpful and caring. They have built a comprehensive community that is dedicated to helping people build online businesses from the ground up. Wealthy Affiliate is the real deal. If you want to learn how build an online business, WA is the best place to learn. It's also extremely affordable.
Use your personal words & experience with the product. Your own content, or photos & videos of yourself using the product are always the most effective. For example, many affiliate programs provide swipe copy to their affiliates which is pre-written emails, post material or social media posts. These can be helpful as a guide, but they often scream swipe copy, aren’t written in your voice (the one your readers know!) and if a lot of affiliates are using it, are overdone.
