After about 3 and a half months I had made my first sale and that was probably one of the best days of my life, I was so excited. It also confirmed that this was real and that anyone no matter who they are or what their skill level was could learn to do this. By my sixth month I was making around a couple hundred bucks a month with it increasing every day. I now am making a full time living from doing this and I absolutely love it.
If you don’t like to write, do not sign up for Wealthy Affiliate. The business model that Wealthy Affiliate teaches revolves around producing lots of great content to attract website visitors from search engines. This means, as you build your business, you’ll be writing just about every day, just like I do on this very blog you’re reading. I’ve already written almost 4,000 words in this one post alone, and it’s not even close to being finished yet. Affiliate marketing takes work, and if you are unable or unwilling to write a TON of content, don’t even consider getting into this. Being a writer will end up being your main job.
I am a HUGE fan of the “freemium” business model. Wealthy Affiliate follows that model by offering a free membership account. The free membership gives you limited access in the Wealthy Affiliate dashboard. Some of your access lasts forever, such as some of the training videos and community features, while other features only last for a limited time, such as the live chat feature. Here is what you get with the free Wealthy Affiliate Membership:

Video games are in high demand and this is a multi billion dollar business which you could capitalize on with your website. You will get 2 free websites when you join and you can use these to promote anything you want. If you want to know how the whole process works I have explained it in detail here http://aworkathomebusinesses.com/how-to-become-affiliate-marketer/ This post will walk you through the entire process and explain how everything works. If you stick with the training that WA has and follow it closely, then take action on what you have learned you will start seeing a whole lot more then $60 a month.I look forward to working with you Stacey and if you have any more questions about how this works or need a hand getting started please let me know and I would love to answer your questions and help you out.
If you can follow simple directions and take action on the daily tasks there’s no reason why you won’t be successful with this program. I have been making a full time living from this for close to 2 years now and my income is constantly growing more each day. Also my spelling and grammar were horrible when I first started but I didn’t let that stop me from reaching my goals.

Promote products that are stepping stones to products you will create in the future. This is a bit more advanced, but is a great way to think ahead. Amy Porterfield suggests thinking about the first thing your followers will need in order to get started with what you provide. For example, I teach people how to blog, so the first thing they need to start a blog is hosting. That’s why I am an affiliate for hosting.


Hey Ryan thanks for the comment, All of this training on how to create visual graphics and star ratings is covered in the Boot camp at Wealthy Affiliate. Anyone can achieve this level of success and beyond if they just follow the training provided. I’m glad you liked it and thanks for stopping by if you ever need any help getting started let me know and I would love to help you out man.
Once you get ranked and start getting some traffic to your site you’ll have lots of ways you can earn money from it and this is what you’re going to learn at WA. I will be here to help you out every step of the way and answer any questions you may have. If you haven’t done so already, you should sign up for your FREE starter membership by clicking on the blue button above that says become a member today.
Hey Kim, There is no such thing as a dumb question. You won’t know unless you ask and I’m glad you asked this question. When you join Wealthy Affiliate you can promote anything you want, I usually recommend people to start out with a passion or hobby. There are millions of different products you could sell on your website from places like Amazon, Click bank and many others. You can do this by signing up to their affiliate program which is free to join.

When it comes to updating your blog – I don’t have a definitive answer for you. Some of my blogs see new content once a week. Others see new posts more often. I prefer to concentrate on quality and not quantity. Also I am creating more and more audio and video content for my brands and a lot of this content simply doesn’t make it to my blogs. In my experience it’s the consistency that matters. Pick your publishing schedule and stick to it for a year.
No problem Candice, There is no rush to join and I would rather you wait until you can devote more time to doing this then have you join when you are too busy and not do anything. I’m not going anywhere and I will be here in January when you are ready. Thanks for responding back to me and I look forward to working with you here soon. Talk to you soon Candice.
Always make affiliate links nofollow. Google’s goal is to provide its users with the best possible search results to their search queries. One of the main ways they figure out which webpages are the best is through links. The Google bots crawl the web, reading text. When they come to a link, it’s like an open door. They follow the link (walk through the door) and explore the site you linked to.

You see what I’m getting at? If you break these niches down like I’ve done for you above and gradually start to build your site out you can branch out into other target markets in the tattoo niche. If you haven’t already, I would sign up for your free starter account by clicking on the “Become A Member” button above in blue. This way you’ll be able to get a feel for what you’ll be doing and get to check out everything that WA has to offer you without spending any of your hard earned money.

You put these links at the bottom of your review and every time someone click your link and makes a purchase you get paid a commission. This is the basic rundown of what you’ll be doing April and I hope this has helped clear up any confusion you may have had about this. I would get started by creating your Free Starter Account by clicking on the link above under where it says “Get Started Building Your Online Business Today”

£0?! When you join as a starter as I did you will be granted instant access to the whole community including live chat, 500 training modules, 3 classrooms, networking and 2 free websites plus free searches on the keyword tool. Wealthy affiliate encourages you to stat for free as they would rather you see for yourself before you invest any money. I have to repeat myself here but I can think of no other site offering this service of a free starter membership to access to the whole website!
The way the training is structured is great for learning. Many courses just throw videos at you without any structure. Seriously. I've taken a course where all the members complained about how disorganized it was. The founders said it was purposefully disorganized to teach you how to dig and search for things like an entrepreneur. I couldn't make up something so crazy!

I’ve been reading your reviews on WA for awhile today and am extremely pleased to have found you! This post brings up a question: if I am an affiliate for a writer’s group I belong to, I receive discounts on all of their training products. Can you explain how would I receive monetary compensation for being an affiliate (or as a distributor for health care products, for example, and an essential oil company that I also belong to) and by driving traffic to their websites? Also, if I have multiple websites do I then need to maintain blogs for each one to maximize Google traffic or can they in anyway be linked to streamline this process?
Spam is the biggest threat to organic search engines, whose goal is to provide quality search results for keywords or phrases entered by their users. Google's PageRank algorithm update ("BigDaddy") in February 2006—the final stage of Google's major update ("Jagger") that began in mid-summer 2005—specifically targeted spamdexing with great success. This update thus enabled Google to remove a large amount of mostly computer-generated duplicate content from its index.[28]

For your second question, You only get paid when someone clicks on your link and buys something. For Amazon they don’t necessarily have to buy the item you are promoting for you to make a sale. If they buy anything at all when they go through your link you still get the commission for it. If you have Google ad sense on your website and someone clicks on your ads you will get paid every time someone clicks on them.
You sign up for FREE and never not once charge you a dime!! Unless you choose to upgrade that is your choice to do so! They never force or hassle money out of your pocket unlike other MLM companies online that try to make you scale up! Now that's SCAMMING ppl to not let them have the opportunity to have hands on access. WA they give you ALL ACCESS!! And people complaint about WA?? Are you kidding me!! I love Wealthy Affiliate and if some of you have issues about them them try to have myself and a million other followers and WA affiliates say anything negative... but that will suck because there is NOTHING NEGATIVE TO SAY ABOUT WEALTHY AFFILIATES. And as far as I know Kyle is NEVER rude!! Let's make that VERY CLEAR!!
We were all new to online business at some point in time. Personally, for me, I had absolutely no experience when I got started and I can totally relate to how you must feel about now. You can still join WA as a premium member no matter where you live Willz. If you happen to live in 1 of the countries I mentioned above, you just wouldn’t be able to take advantage of the free starter membership.
As you can tell from her homepage, all of Andréa’s posts focus on all-natural, high-protein, delicious recipes. She has a niche, and she sticks to it! Whenever she calls out an ingredient that’s associated with an affiliate program she’s involved in (such as a protein powder), she hyperlinks that word with an affiliate link back to product’s website. 

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.
They are a very clever marketing company, and are everything they say they're not. Beware, and please read. They are smarter than most, which is why they have so many followers. They claim to have the key to training a person on how to successfully create their own lucrative work-from-home blog sites. They do claim to be a lot of work, require a lot of patience, blah blah swoon. You almost had me. 
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.

The most valuable benefits of Wealthy Affiliate University (in my opinion) are the step-by-step approach to building a business and the support from Kyle, Carson and many expert members. Most other online programs are lacking the support and the clear action plan. I have tested dozens of different programs over the past 7 years and nothing comes close to the quality of WA.
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.

Since I’ve been in the industry for 9 years I have joined countless training websites and not a single one came close to Wealthy Affiliate. I am not going to list everything within WA but just their Live Video classes are extremely amazing. There are now over 200 videos that train you on several subject. You can learn how to start and grow your email list in any niche, how to do social media marketing, how to run successful Facebook ads, how to do local SEO and find clients in your city, how to scale your niche websites and a lot more. Jay often does Niche Hot Seat series where people actually share their niche website and get a real live audit and suggestions on how to grow it, scale it and earn more money from it. Unfortunately it seems like you haven’t attended any of those closes and didn’t watch the previous classes which are all recorded. All of these classes concentrate on building a successful business outside of promoting WA.


Always fill out the comment box to “sell” your platform. If you are given the opportunity to explain why you are interested in a program, do it! Use the space to highlight why you would be an asset to the program. Talk about how your audience is their audience. Talk about the size of your mailing list (if it’s significant). Talk about your success with similar programs. Talk about where and how you will promote (hopefully you’ve done a bit of research so you know what they’re hoping for). Don’t sound desperate and certainly don’t lie about anything, but be upfront and honest about how this will be a win for them.
So to show you exactly how awesome the training is, and exactly how fast support is, and exactly how friendly everyone is, you can create a free Starter Membership. With this free membership, you'll be able to build your first website and ask unlimited questions. Kyle (the owner) will show you step by step how to pick a topic for your website, how to build your website, and how to create your first articles.

If you could take a few minutes and think of any hobbies you have or something you are passionate about, then I can help you find a niche (Topic of interest) and get you started.I hope this has helped you out Greg and I would suggest that you get started by signing up for your Free starter account by clicking on the blue “Become A Member” button above. If you have any other questions or need any additional help before joining please let me know man.

Wow thanks for sharing this great resource which is Wealthy Affiliate. I have joined as their premium member too, for just a few months now, definitely not as long as you’re in it. But I know right now already, that I’ll be there for the long haul. I have already set up my first website, and it’s starting to get some traffic from search terms. Next I’ll be focusing more on tapping on the traffic to generate some revenue. So I definitely have only good words for Wealthy Affiliate, what they teach there is superb stuff, and it works! 
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.

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

Once you become a premium member you’ll be able to contact many experienced online marketers who have been making a living from this for many years. (Many of them are making 6 figures a year or more) If you are looking to make $1,000 per month within your first 3-6 months I would recommend that you devote at least 5-6 hours a day to this if you possibly can.
I’m glad that you were able to find my WA review and I would be more than happy to answer these questions for you. Affiliate marketing is one of the most lucrative business models that you’ll find on the internet and one of the best ways to start up a business online. I’m sorry to hear that you were taken advantage of from a late night television program years ago.
Actually I’m writing this comment to ask you how do I join (to premium) wealthy affiliate through your affiliate link? I tried to find it from your article but can’t find it. Please let me know soonest because I’m currently on fire to start my empire with Wealthy Affiliate and I want my referral to be you as a credit of your beautiful writing on Wealthy Affiliate. 🙂
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.

Wealthy Affiliate is built specifically for beginners, which means that it will guide you through selecting a niche and building an online business from scratch. The training is well structured so you won’t feel stuck or overwhelmed. You don’t have to worry a bit about not having a niche or any experience, because the course will guide you through it.
Yes I have been with WA for a while now (3 years to be exact) When first starting out I wouldn’t recommend starting more than 1 niche due to the fact that you will likely become overwhelmed trying to learn and write about 2 niches at the same time. Once you get some experience under your belt and are making some steady sales from 1 niche you could branch out into other niches (Like I did)

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.


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.

If you do want to sign up for Wealthy Affiliate, clicking on my affiliate link is actually beneficial for you, too. If you sign up after clicking my link, I get notified and we are able to have private 1-on-1 conversations within’ the Wealthy Affiliate community. This is a huge added benefit and all you have to do is use my affiliate link before signing up for your free account.
