My main gripe with OMG Machines, from an affiliate perspective, is that their affiliate training is limited at best. They definitely are great at teaching black hat SEO, but I found myself searching the internet for more information on affiliate marketing since the course doesn't cover much else. Wealthy Affiliate definitely covers the topic of affiliate marketing way better and is much more affordable. OMG Machines does not offer a money-back guarantee either. They say you need to commit and not have one foot out the door, so no refunds are allowed.
You will be selling other people’s products and you’ll be provided with all the marketing materials needed to sell their products as well as your very own affiliate ID. You will be given your very own personalized affiliate link and this is the link that pays you. You will need to put your affiliate link on your website, and when people visit your website, click on your link, and make a purchase, you make money.
I openly disclose the fact that I will receive a small affiliate commission if someone decides to join WA Premium using one of my affiliate link. There is no compensation for starter members. I often tell people that they are free to join WA without using my link but I encourage them to do so if they liked my review and the effort I put into explaining what it is and what it does. If someone thinks I don’t deserve being compensated, they can join directly through WA main site, without using my links, no hard feelings. The goal here is to answer all the questions about WA.
By all means take as much time as you need and go over the starter lessons as many times as you want. You can continue building out your website until you are ready to take things to the next level and upgrade to premium. What’s your username at WA so that I can look you up and did you sign up through me? I really am looking forward to working with you Carrl and helping you out in any way I can.
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.
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?

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.
Ask for VIP (sometimes called “tiered”) commissions. Many affiliate programs have different commission levels. Usually the standard commission level is made public, but higher commissions are offered to higher performing affiliates. Sometimes you may be bumped up to “VIP affiliate” status by the advertiser, but most times you have to ask if there’s a higher tier and how you can get there.

Wealthy Affiliate is a training program that teaches you how to do affiliate marketing. Affiliate marketing is an avenue where people can earn money promoting other people’s products or services. This is the best place for any beginner to learn because they have a conducive step by step training that will bring you through every step of your journey.
There are lots of brick and mortal businesses that don’t have a website and they are missing out on lots of potential customers. Wealthy Affiliate can show you how to market your business online and you will be expanding your reach worldwide. You will be advertising and listing your products for sale reaching into different countries. That’s the greatest thing about being online the potential is unlimited.

This is a great question and it applies to anything and everything. For example you need hosting for your website and any place where you decide to host can shut down at any down. However, this is very unlikely. The same goes for Wealthy Affiliate, it has been only growing since 2005 and I can’t even imagine why it might shut down. Whenever it comes to websites I always suggest people to make backups so if somethign goes wrong for whatever reason you always have a copy of your site and can easily restore it.
Most members I know do not promote Wealthy Affiliate. In fact some of the most successful members at WA build niche websites promoting products from Amazon and other affiliate networks. Personally I only started promoting WA once I was able to earn $7k – $8k with my niche sites that I built and grew because of WA’s training. Sure, some people jump into promoting WA right away but that wouldn’t me my first suggestion. Go to any platform, free or paid where affiliate marketers are making money – most will never show you their website.

Hi Scott, thanks for you reply. When I create an account I get a message saying “oops, it seems we already have an account with info provided, please login using that information using the member login area” and when I try to log in I get a message saying “unable to find user account with credentials provided” so I’m just going in a circle getting nowhere. Please help..


I have been reading the comments/reviews regarding this company and I am interested in joining,but I have a couple of questions before doing so. My main interest is cooking so I would like to put my own recipes on site would this sort of thing be of interest. Can you also tell me once the 7 day free membership has expired how much is it going to cost on an ongoing basis. What are the layout costs of starting this up if there are any. I am retired and I am looking for an interest but have no experience in this area as I worked for the NHS

I am a new member to WA and was just checking out some sites that might be an affiliate of WA. Very nicely done and informative. Look forward to chatting and sharing ideas as time goes on. I have researched and bought numerous training systems and found nothing as good as WA. It will be nice helping other people to find the training their looking for to develop an online business, as the economy is somewhat challenging.


Highly competitive: If you can’t generate traffic, you don’t make any sales. This is the biggest challenge. When everyone can sign up for these affiliate offers for free (very low barrier for entry), now you have a situation where there is a boatload of competition for most affiliate opportunity out there. Unless you use paid traffic, most people get traffic from building a website and ranking it in Google, which is what Wealthy Affiliate teaches, but the problem is there’s only 10 spots on the first page of Google. & you have to compete for those spots with thousands of affiliates around the world.
Another positive point is that Wealthy Affiliate can help to minimise some of your technical expenses as they provide a hosting service for 25 domains, email addresses specific to your domain, and a light keyword research tool called Jaaxy. The combined total of these expenses for just one website can easily reach $20/mth (For reference, an email address tied to your domain costs $5/mth per account on Google Business Suite while the equivalent hosting in terms of speed/space can cost $12/mth on hosts such as Siteground and Bluehost).

Whenever I talk to someone about WA – I always start by saying it’s not some money making scheme, easy system to riches or pyramid scam. So what is Wealthy Affiliate? Wealthy Affiliate University is first of all an online business community and a marketing training center. If you think that you will start making money by simply joining WA – I would suggest you walk away, it’s not going to happen. This is probably the biggest difference between WA and all the other online programs – Wealthy Affiliate does not sell hype and false promises, it doesn’t promise to make you rich overnight and it doesn’t promise you a shortcut to overnight millions of dollars. However, this program promises to teach, train, educate and support you. If you are willing to start and run a successful business – than keep reading.
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.
Once you have traffic, you need to "make money" from this traffic. This is the fun part. Without spending a dime, you can promote all the top brands in the world through affiliate programs. As a Wealthy Affiliate member, you'll learn how you can choose from close to 600 MILLION products/services and easily promote them on your website. No inventory. No shipping. No support required.
What are the terms of the program? Is there anything I need to be aware of that would make a program not worth it for me. For example, Amazon Associates does not allow you to put your affiliate links in emails. If your main method of communication with your audience is via email, Amazon might not be a good fit for you. Wayfair, for example, does not allow their affiliates to post affiliate links on Pinterest or any other social media site. If that’s a strategy you rely on, Wayfair might not be a good fit for you.

Hello, I’m very interested in getting into the Dot.com world not to get Rich but hopefully to try and make a little supplemental income. I honestly don’t have a ton of money to spend and I’m pretty new to all of this. I was gonna do the Mobe thing but did my research and OH MY GOSH!!! they are asking for a lot of money for no guarantee return.. I understand nothing is guarante’d but for that system it’s not for people who live week to week like me…. I came across Wa on a review stating it was fairly inexpensive with a monthly membership charge.
Summary: While other programs charges hundreds or thousands of dollars to teach Affiliate Marketing, you can get access to everything there is in Wealthy Affiliate for a fraction of the fee, plus you'll enjoy so many other valuable features without ever needing to pay for upsells. This is what I like about Wealthy Affiliate because it genuinely wants you to succeed as an affiliate marketer.
Just take amazon as an example. In order to earn money from Amazon, you have to sign up as a partner with them. Once you have signed up, you will be given a unique affiliate link. You can promote this link by placing it in your own website, etc. When people clicks on that link, and purchase something, you make a commission from the successful sale. You do not need to handle the transaction nor are you selling stuff. You are connecting potential buyers to retailers.
Often times Affiliate Marketing is Over-Hyped: You’ll see a lot of testimonials promising spectacular results with affiliate marketing, such as “person X made $60,000 in just 30 days as a brand new affiliate” & there’s many similar messaging like this that unfortunately give affiliate marketing the wrong perception, that its some sort of get rich quick scheme, which it is far from. This kind of insanely fast results most likely came from a successful Facebook ad or other successful paid aid. Sometimes due to multitude of factors an ad can just take off and generate high revenues for short period & then burn out. The difficulty is being able to sustain those kind of numbers consistently. FB for one doesn’t like most affilaite offers to be promoted, so eventually your FB ad account will get banned or your ad will burn through its audience and stop working. I know this because I’ve been there done that. Those massive pay days are fun but the real challenge is can you sustain it?

If you already have a product you would like to sell then this will give you a big headstart and you will be able to advance in the training faster than everyone else. WA could definitely help you out and show you how to market your gift baskets and get them in front of targeted buyers. You don’t need to be a great writer or even be good at writing blogs. I started out here over 2 years ago and I was absolutely horrible at writing and my grammar wasn’t the greatest.
I haven’t even scratched the surface as to everything that you will get as a premium member. I would definitely recommend that you check it out and see if it’s what you are looking for. It has changed my life and showed me so many different ways to make money. If you need any help getting started I am here for you. Feel free to send me a message anytime you have a question. You can open up your Free account here and get started on your first training lesson.
However, the biggest thing, that influenced my decision toward this company was the fact that,  they allow people to test drive (try them out) as a free member. As in free member for as long as one wishes. Also, they allow the more serious ones to take advantage of their premium membership which is the maximum learning, that's packed with tons of value and support.
In 1994, Tobin launched a beta version of PC Flowers & Gifts on the Internet in cooperation with IBM, who owned half of Prodigy.[5] By 1995 PC Flowers & Gifts had launched a commercial version of the website and had 2,600 affiliate marketing partners on the World Wide Web. Tobin applied for a patent on tracking and affiliate marketing on January 22, 1996, and was issued U.S. Patent number 6,141,666 on Oct 31, 2000. Tobin also received Japanese Patent number 4021941 on Oct 5, 2007, and U.S. Patent number 7,505,913 on Mar 17, 2009, for affiliate marketing and tracking.[6] In July 1998 PC Flowers and Gifts merged with Fingerhut and Federated Department Stores.[7]

I have been a member of Wealthy Affiliate for close to a year. The lessons are great and easy to follow. There is so much information here that it takes a while to take it all in. They teach you to build your own website, join affiliate groups, write good content, and share it on social media. They have an awesome, positive community. I can talk to members from all over the world. We are willing to share our knowledge to help each other. After three months we can write trainings of our own to add to the wealth of information that is already available to WA members. It starts out free to join, with 7 days of free lessons, free starter membership and two free websites. You must go premium after that; but there is a discount for the first month. There is a discount also for going yearly. The training and community make the cost worthwhile. I give WA an A+++++++!
Solo Build It – As I stated earlier in this Wealthy Affiliate review, I initially learned how to start my own business with this service. Solo Build It is somewhat similar to Wealthy Affiliate as far as the training is concerned, but Solo Build It but I believe the training at Solo Build It is far superior. My favorite part about Solo Build It, however, is that they offer absolutely EVERYTHING you’ll ever need to grow your business online including domain registration, an intuitive site builder, research tools, hosting, and all the other tools you need are in one place with training on how to put it all together. You can learn a lot more about them by going through their video tour.
You could of hosted your site that was built and learnd more valuable information If you became a member. You did not like the platform and or the knowledge that, I would say is of great value. Because you knew it already.  Are there flaws in communication maybe. The person led you to the information to try to help you. If it was the wrong information im sure you would of found the right info there.
Your second question. Yes, there are people who created websites in a niche they have no interest in and they ended up making money. This does happen although very rarely. I always recommend working with a hobby or a passion simply because this will make everything easier and much more fun. Can you really keep creating content on a subject you’re not interested in? Probably not. You can however hire writers who will do it for you but that’s a different story.
I had no idea how anything worked before I came to Wealthy Affiliate and I would recommend that you sign up for your Free account using the link above. I will be there to help you out every step of the way and answer any questions you might have.I hope this has answered all your questions and if you have anymore questions about Wealthy Affiliate let me know.
…and the list goes on! The main thing to keep in mind is that your first website doesn't have to be perfect. It doesn't have to be a home run with your first try. I started three or four failed websites before I really got into the groove and picked a topic that worked for me. My very first websites was about horse care, and it didn't last long. My first successful website was about computer software!
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.

I realize my bias is already showing through, so I’ll get to what I DON’T like about Wealthy Affiliate below. But, as I’ve already stated, overall I don’t know of any other place that is better for new affiliate marketers to get started than Wealthy Affiliate. If you take a look around my site, you’ll notice I’ve spent a TON of time on it. I’ve spent years of my life building this site, and there are currently almost 500 posts here, all for free, for everyone. It is in my best interest to promote only the best training course and that training course is Wealthy Affiliate.

I love Wealthy Affiliate and I love to work hard just like they have taught us too. I would rather get rich slower anyway so I can build up a successful business for the long term. You can even get training on how to be a better writer at WA. Once you start writing and do it on a regular basis it gets a lot easier. The fact that anyone can get started for free is the best part. You could make money for free but the premium membership has so many ways to get you there faster.
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.
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.
As I am finishing up this Wealthy Affiliate Review I realize this is the longest review I have written for anything or anyone – I guess I truly am very excited about WA 🙂 At this point I would like to invite you to check out Wealthy Affiliate for yourself – it is completely free after all so you’ve got nothing to lose. Once you’re inside, don’t forget to pass by my WA profile and say hi. Still have questions? Please use the comment form below. I’d love to hear from you!   – Alex (a.k.a. canuck)
I come from the world of mlm where I have been taken advantage off 🙁 How are these network marketing companies are still legal is beyond me. I was searching on how to get a refund from the company I joined and I came across your website. finally someone who doesnt promise to make me rich overnight and explains how to build an actual wealth form home. I think it’s your honesty and transparency that got me curious about online marketing and the affiliate business.
Ok so I’ll bite. Tell me why someome that searches for any kind of product wouldn’t just go to the direct supplier rather than filtering through a long winded site to eventually click on an affiate link? If one happens to fall upon someones website as result of a search word only to discover an implanted link takes them to the actual seller, what keeps them from exiting their website and then going directly to the actual seller’s site, such as Amazon for one? I do this all the time.

I would suggest that you get started by signing up for your FREE account and then filling out your profile by uploading a pic of yourself or using one of the ones that Wealthy Affiliate provides you with.Write a little about yourself in your profile description and let the community know what you would like to achieve and list some goals for yourself.
By doing this, you will be setting yourself up for failure and it’s not a very good way to start out. If you really are that worried about the payments then you should wait until you are a little more financially stable and are able to invest in your education. You actually can be a starter member forever if you want to and make money, but going this route will take you much longer and your chances of being successful aren’t nearly as good as if you invested in the advanced training courses.

You just need to either upload a picture of yourself or you can use the images that WA provides you with. After that take a few minutes and tell us a little bit about you and what you would like to achieve at WA. The more we know about you the better we can help you out. I will be sending you my personal welcome message shortly after you join. I want to set you up for success as much as I can by pointing you in the right direction and getting you started on your first training lesson.
