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.
Hi Jack! Just wondering if you can advise abit about the process about the course. While I understand there is alot of online process, technique and marketing that goes into an online business, my biggest issue is I just have no clue on what to run! I don’tk now my niche? I love investing – shares, equities, everything, but I am by far not a guru that I can setup a coaching style online business like those ‘rich dudes’ you see selling training courses online whiel worknig on their laptop in bali.
First of all, GREAT review, in fact the best I’ve read so far in my opinion. Not only was it informative, but it was personal to you and how it really has changed your life. I am in the similar situation you started out in. I’m almost 27, lol, not exactly living with my parents just yet, but if I don’t make next months’ rent then I will have to move back with them, and it’s not that bad, but I just prefer living on my own. I’ve done lots of research, read lots of reviews, and have even started with WA. I was just building my website when I noticed that some of the better platforms for the better websites were Premium, hence the research. I am now going to upgrade to Premium, as your review has officially confirmed the greatness of this company. Just thinking about how the possibilities are literally endless gives me a LOT of hope for my future. I have a lot of social anxiety and it’s hard for me to get a real job. I googled “how to make money today” and a site came up that recommended another site, then from that site I found WA, and now I am SUPER excited!!!!! I don’t know anything about marketing either, so I’m actually amazed how they teach you step by step how to do everything to make you successful!!! It’s such a great learning experience as well. You not only learn more about your niche, but you can learn about other niches and you learn how to be successful as well.
I’m really glad you are enjoying the reviews! I can totally relate to how you must feel about devoting months of your time to a business that you aren’t 100% sure if you will ever start making any money from. Believe me I was very skeptical about joining and wondering if I was wasting my time by building a website that nobody would visit or buy anything from me. Now that I look back, I am glad that I stuck with it because it is definitely paying off now.
But, after all the reviews I read, it seems that the only way to make big bucks from WA is through its own affiliate programs. This doesn’t sit well for someone like me who wants to do affiliate in other niches and still earn more than my last corporate job. And… I’m afraid that I would still need to spend a lot of money from media buying (i.e. solo, ads, pps) just to earn back and more.
The premium membership at WA is a no brainer when it comes to upgrading. No other online community comes close to what you will get at WA as a premium member. There is no obligation to join premium if you don’t want to and you can remain a Free member for as long as you like until you are ready to upgrade. Other programs can’t make that statement due to the fact that they are focused on ripping you off. How to Make $1,000+ Per DAY with Affiliate Marketing!
Hey Scott! Thanks for posting such great reviews and replying to everyone’s comments. I’m interested in joining, but I’m a little skeptical about devoting months if my time before earning anything. I understand it takes time to build any career. I mean, I’m going into my 3rd year of schooling for a career that isn’t mine yet! Lol. So my questions…What is the method for payment? Do you only get paid for each time someone clicks on a link to what or promoting or do you get paid for each click and each purchase of that item? Also, how about if I chose a product such as Avon or PartyLite? You know, products that are sold by individuals rather than through a website? I mean, they still have websites, I’m just not sure how that would work with WA. Thanks in advance for any answers you can provide!

Cost per mille requires only that the publisher make the advertising available on his or her website and display it to the page visitors in order to receive a commission. Pay per click requires one additional step in the conversion process to generate revenue for the publisher: A visitor must not only be made aware of the advertisement but must also click on the advertisement to visit the advertiser's website.

Although it differs from spyware, adware often uses the same methods and technologies. Merchants initially were uninformed about adware, what impact it had, and how it could damage their brands. Affiliate marketers became aware of the issue much more quickly, especially because they noticed that adware often overwrites tracking cookies, thus resulting in a decline of commissions. Affiliates not employing adware felt that it was stealing commission from them. Adware often has no valuable purpose and rarely provides any useful content to the user, who is typically unaware that such software is installed on his/her computer.
Also, having been priviledged to serve on the Board Of Directors of the Network Marketing industry’s professional association for 4 years, representing Canada (ANMP.com – Association of Network Marketing Professionals), a global, non-profit organization, which serves to educate, protect and support Network Marketers) – I guess I do feel somewhat “protective” of this industry.
Since the emergence of affiliate marketing, there has been little control over affiliate activity. Unscrupulous affiliates have used spam, false advertising, forced clicks (to get tracking cookies set on users' computers), adware, and other methods to drive traffic to their sponsors. Although many affiliate programs have terms of service that contain rules against spam, this marketing method has historically proven to attract abuse from spammers.
As you can see, WA is good choice for everyone who is seeking to earn money from home, however you must understand that you will have to invest your time and effort in order to make it work. This program will teach you how to BUILD a business – and any business, online or offline requires an investment of time, effort and usually money. The big difference between starting an online business instead of a traditional brick and mortar business is that you do not need a start-up capital to get started online. You do not even need any money to join Wealthy Affiliate, the basic free membership gives you all you need to get started: including 2 free hosted websites, training and all the support you need. What Exactly Do You Get Inside? Wealthy Affiliate only costs $49/month.
I’m glad that you were able to find my site. I like to think of WA as your 1 stop shop for just about anything you want to learn about online/affiliate marketing. They teach SEO, PPC, Email marketing, Video Marketing, and everything in between. The training offered at OMG doesn’t quite live up to my standards, and it’s extremely overpriced in my opinion.
I see people who buy an online course and hope that it will help them get rich right off the bat. They want a complete A-Z. In reality, it’s always going to be a process of trying numerous courses, filtering information, testing things for yourself and seeing what works for you. Courses and mentors will get you there faster, but you will need to put in the work and think for yourself.
If you set your mind to it you can achieve anything if you are willing to work hard at it. 80% of people who start out in affiliate marketing end up failing because they either don’t have the right training or they get overwhelmed with everything you need to learn to succeed in this business. If you are willing to work hard at this you can make lots of money but it’s not going to come easy.
I saw where you signed up and that’s great man. Your next steps should be to get started on your first training lesson.

I’ve heard of AWOL but don’t have personal experience with it. Personally I doubt I would ever join a program that costs about $15,000 (if you go through all of their products). Also the fact that you need to pay a monthly $40 in order to be their affiliate doesn’t make sense to me. Since I have not purchased their training I can’t judge its quality but I’m certain all the required training to the world of online marketing can be obtained for a lot less money.
I am really excited about Wealthy Affilliate and I really want to give it a try subscribing from your link but I’d really like to know what I’m going to do to receive money. A friend of mine told me that I will build a web page to sell any product I want to. My question is, am I going to have a great quality web page to sell something? Will I have a well looking web page? Can a I see your best selling web page that you’ve got hosted inside Wealthy affilliate? Thanks in advance, If I see that my page will look great, I will gladly join WA from your link.
Honestly, I think this website can help people learn about buildings website, but you have to spend a lot of money and time to achieve something. I been a member for a year. Didn’t make any money, but I paid 359 US$. But in the same time, I learned a lot about building websites. I am not happy about them right now because after I stopped my yearly membership at June 13, 2017. They took my money 359US$ and shut down my account. Now I couldn’t even log in my account, on my web page, showed ether I become monthly or yearly membership. I couldn’t even log in, but I remember free membership is allowed. Right? What is going on here?. The good thing is my bank promised me I will get my money refund. So, not too bad, at least I didn’t lost my money. They are not very kind to the people don’t want continue their membership. Very disappointed.
For your question on the length of time to be up and running, it is really subjective. If your speed of interpreting and executing the information is fast, you can be up and running in a matter of days, but if you take your time like I did, it will take probable 2 weeks to a month to be up and running. Making money is another story, it took me 4 months to make my first commission, some people took weeks while some people never see any results. Wealthy Affiliate Costs How Much?? [Hidden Price]
