On one hand, long and ugly affiliate tracking links are a straight giveaway to people that you want to sell them a product (and people may be uncomfortable clicking on them). Therefore, making your link shorter and "nicer" looking will it give a more professional appearance. One of my favorite plugins for making links look "pretty" is the Pretty Links WordPress plugin.
So a question I have, just because it didn’t jump into my eyes – does this Wealthy Affiliate Program also include knowledge about list-building? Because this is what i get so far – I should build a following by providing some kinda value to people that click on ads that I place on the internet.. I know – you can’t explain everything – but my question is – do you think I find “everything” here kinda “step-by-step”. Seen that you don’t call SFM a SCAM leaves me unsure, if I should go on a while – and just stay cirtical. What’s your opinion?
Can you make money with affiliate marketing? The short answer is yes, affiliate programs can earn a extra money and even a full-time income from home. The long answer is a little more complicated. Like any home income venture, success comes not so much from what you choose to do to make money, but whether or not you do what needs to be done correctly and consistently.
In my honest opinion, Wealthy Affiliate is the #1 place to get trained on how to build passive income websites. If there was a better course, I would have wrote a negative review and recommended you elsewhere. My personal recommendation is for you to join as a free member to test the program before buying it. Also, don't forget to pick my brain and message me for 1-on-1 mentoring.
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.
Hi there Rajkamal, I’m very sorry to hear that you got confused last time when you joined WA and quit. It can be confusing when you are first starting out and that is why I am here to help you through the process and get you rolling here. I can assure you that if you sign up under me I will make sure that you understand everything and help you out as much as I possibly can. We have certification courses that are laid out so that you can follow them step by step. Each one has 10 lessons and once you are done you can check them off and move on to the next step.
Building trust with your audience is paramount in affiliate marketing, and the quickest way to lose trust is to recommend products either you haven’t used before or that aren’t a good fit for your audience. Also make sure you never tell anyone to directly buy a product, you are simply recommending the product. The more helpful you are and the more you make quality recommendations, the more likely your web visitors will come back for your expertise. 
I think you did a great job with this review of Wealthy Affiliate. You pretty much covered everything but what I like the most about your review is how you included not only your own testimonial but also those of other successful Wealthy Affiliates who are making money online. This just goes to show that you can really make money online by applying the training and lessons taught by WA.
This support will be by email or personal message or whatever way you are most comfortable with just let me know. If you haven’t already done so I would encourage you to sign up for your Free account and fill out your profile by adding a image and description. I will be getting in touch with you shortly after that to guide you in the right direction. i look forward to working with you Dennis and if you have anymore questions please let me know.

I think that now is the perfect time for you to sign up for your Free account by clicking on the “Join Now” button above. I would love to help you get started building an online business. Since school will be out here in the next month or so you will have lots of time to work on this. I will be there to help you out every step of the way and explain everything to you.
You should also make sure you aren't competing with your own affiliates for eyeballs. Any marketing channels you're using, such as search engines, content sites or e-mail lists, should be off limits to your affiliates. Put marketing restrictions into your affiliate agreement and notify partners immediately. It's your program--you set the rules. Or, if you prefer, you can let your affiliates run the majority of your internet marketing.

In the case of cost per mille/click, the publisher is not concerned about whether a visitor is a member of the audience that the advertiser tries to attract and is able to convert, because at this point the publisher has already earned his commission. This leaves the greater, and, in case of cost per mille, the full risk and loss (if the visitor cannot be converted) to the advertiser.


Hi Alex, Thanks for the great review of Wealthy Affiliate. I was doing some research for months whether to join or not. Now, I finally decided to join. I will join with your affiliate link. I will also definitely join premium membership. BUT, before I join I want you to answer me one question. Here is my case, I am from Ethiopia where there is no international banking or card, and PayPal is not functional either. But I find a way to get a master card from Payoneer(international MasterCard provider). Also I managed to load my card with $104 from fiverr. That’s all I got. This will cover 2 months of my premium membership fees. So my question is: From training I got from WA will I get $100 with the end of 2nd month to cover my 3rd and 4th month fees? (considering I will work to my maximum potential and my niche will be new trendy topic.)

Scott~ I am interested in WA and seeing if I can “make it work”. Definitely willing to give it my all. But, I am looking to sign under someone who is definitely 100% available for support. In other words, not just leaving the support to what we get under WA, and not saying you’re there for support but that being just a sales pitch. I have found by experience that sometimes the individual you sign up under is very slow in responding or doesn’t check in periodically to see how you are doing or if you have any questions. They wait until they are contacted. I have signed up for a totally different on-line business venture, but the individual I signed under has NEVER contacted me. My only support comes from within the company itself. Definitely was just a sales pitch!
Hi jack, thanks for all of your help in this. I recently saw a webinar for inbox blueprint 2.0. Of course they did a great job selling. I found you while I decided to do a little more research on the topic. For beginners in online email marketing like me, what do you recommend. Inbox blueprint claims they guide you step by step, however you recommend Wealthy Affiliate in this article. If you were beginning in this industry but have tons of online knowledge, which program would you choose. Thanks!
Writing product reviews are an excellent way to enhance your credibility as an affiliate marketer. This is especially easy with information products like e-books which are relatively inexpensive. After establishing some steady income it may even be worth buying higher-end products, provided you get in touch with the product creator to work out a strategic marketing plan that takes you to the next level.
I've seen people posting in the community just to get attention and validation from other members. Those kinds of antics belong on Facebook, not Wealthy Affiliate. Just be careful with what you're posting in the community. Post only when you can help someone or need help. If you find yourself posting to earn likes and street cred, it's time to refocus on building your dream lifestyle.
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.

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.

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.
