Thanks for the review I have been looking into WA and a couple other programs for a couple of weeks. I have decided WA is the way to go! However, I still have a couple of questions. They have probably been answered but I need some more clarification please. 1) I will not be paid by WA directly unless I am a part of their affiliate program, correct? Payments from other Companies come directly from the other companies? 2) This seems a little overwhelming. Is there a course of action for a newbie?
There is nothing better than taking a hobby or passion and turning it into a full time business. If you cannot think of anything you would like to sell then WA has the Affiliate boot camp with a topic that is already chosen for you. So no matter what direction you decide to go you can get started today for $0 and have a website that you can use to bring in sales. I hope this has answered your question and if you have any more questions or need help getting started let me know.Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to working with you at WA and helping you get started in your own online business.
A. If you have read this Wealthy Affiliate review thoroughly you understand that WA is not a “money making system” of any sort. You don’t earn money from Wealthy Affiliate (although you can if you promote them). The main point is that you use WA as a training platform where you learn how to start an online business in any industry and than make money from that business. You also use Wealthy Affiliate support if you have any questions or get stuck along the way. Thousands of people within the community would love to help you out whenever you need help.
You can gain access to your first month at an unbelievable $19! This is entirely up to you though May and you can remain a free member for as long as you like. Personally, for me it took me around 3 and a half months before I made my first sale. My income has skyrocked since then and I have been making a full time income online for over 2 and a half years now.
You may have heard of ClickBank, one of the oldest and most popular affiliate networks. A billion-dollar company, ClickBank specializes in digital products like e-books and software, as well as membership sites. If you are comfortable selling information and don’t want the management and administration hassles of “real” businesses, this may be a good starting point. Its commissions can be anywhere from 10% all the way to 75%.
Once you decide to go premium you won’t be able to go back to the free starter membership. The starter membership is there to get you started and you aren’t able to revert back to it, but if you decide that the premium membership isn’t for you then you can cancel your membership at any time. To do this, simply go into your account settings and scroll to the bottom of the page and click stop billing and close my account.
Thanks for your reply. Some of my interests are movies, sing, dance, chat, read, travel(haven’t done much), read, watching tv, electronics, computer, games, social media, sports, food, health, money, business and more. Some interests I like more than others. I know that was too broad of an answer. If possible, I’d like to write about as much of my interests as possible. I think I asked all I could think of. Anything else I haven’t asked that you think I should know about, being a newbie and all?
I am interested in doing something like this but I don’t have much life experience. I have Fibromyalgia and was denied disability, but am not able to work outside the home. Something like this would be perfect for me. However, I can’t afford to purchase items to try them out to give a review or write about them. I was really excited when your site said you would teach me step by step for free! Then really disappointed when it came down to costing money. Regardless of that, you seem like a nice guy. Do you have any advice for me?
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.
Free Training Across The Web – Believe it or not, most of the training I’ve received over the years are sources I’ve found for free all over the web. I’ve shared a LOT of that info with you on this very website through my nearly 500 blog posts (to date). However, you should also check out sources such as YouTube. It’s true, places such as YouTube are filled with scammers and spammers, but mixed within those are some gems. For example, you can look up keynote speeches on affiliate marketing from various conferences, such as Affiliate Summit speakers. Using free content from around the web is hard to sort out and make sense of, so it’s best to use a service like Wealthy Affiliate because you are able to learn the things you need to learn, in the order you need to learn them, without all the distractions. However, as you progress, you may need to learn something specific, at which point you can go to free sources across the web to learn as you need it.

There are 2 options you have when you decide to join the premium membership at WA. You can get your first month at an unbelievable discount of only $19 for your first month if you sign up within your first 7 days. This is a savings of over 50% and this way you can try out everything that is offered at Wealthy Affiliate and get the foundation of your business up and running for under $20.
Wow! Where to start first/ Great review and very detailed. I liked the part about how you started. The review itself was laid out in a very in order and organized manner. Very easy to understand and I felt as though you were talking face to face with me. I liked your reasons to join and reasons not to join. The whole decision process is pretty straight forward for the reader once he or she has finished reading the review. Nice work, and well done.
For example, when I first started back in 2009, I learned from a service called Solo Build It. I knew absolutely nothing about building an online business, let alone what “affiliate marketing” even meant. However, they changed my life and taught me how to build money-making websites online, which is what I’ve been doing with my life ever since. This is another great service to consider and you can read my review of Solo Build It here.
I know that you will benefit greatly from the WA teachings and If I was you I would get rolling today for $0 by opening your free account. After you fill in your details and create your account your first step is to upload a pic of yourself or use one that WA supplies you with. The next step is to write a little about yourself and tell everyone some goals you would like to achieve.

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 by clicking on the “Join Now” button above. I will be there to help you out and get you started on your first 10 lessons. Let me know if there is something you don’t understand and I will explain it to you. I really am looking forward to working with you Shirley and helping you achieve success online.
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.
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! 
In the BigCommerce affiliate program, you receive a 200% bounty per referral and $1,500 per Enterprise referral, with no cap on commissions. Plus, the more referrals you drive through the program, the higher your commission tier will go. BigCommerce uses an industry leading 90-day cookie, so you will receive credit for up to three months for the referrals you generate. Also, there are no obligations or minimum commitments to join the program.
As search engines have become more prominent, some affiliate marketers have shifted from sending e-mail spam to creating automatically generated web pages that often contain product data feeds provided by merchants. The goal of such web pages is to manipulate the relevancy or prominence of resources indexed by a search engine, also known as spamdexing. Each page can be targeted to a different niche market through the use of specific keywords, with the result being a skewed form of search engine optimization.
Wealthy Affiliate is also an excellent place for those who want to have everything they will need in one place. From market research tools to web building tools to domain registration, website hosting, website backups, site security, and much more, it’s all in one place. AND all of those tools come with complete step-by-step training videos as well as a support community that can help you if you’re having trouble. 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. Wealthy Affiliate literally provides absolutely everything you’ll need to succeed with your online business.
Nathaniell, Tasena here from WA!! Quick question. I dont have the $$ at the moment to renew my premium subscription can I seriously not revert back to the free account for now so I can continue my training? I am very disappointed in the lack of support when you are on the no paying side after being a premium member. It’s like you’re completely cut off. There isn’t even a way to ask a question or get help for my type of question without having to pay $49.00. Please let me know. I’d hate to lose all my work over $49.00. Thanks,
I will be getting in contact with you within 60 minutes of you joining to make sure you are finding your way around the community and answer any questions you may have. I am looking forward to working with you Maria and I hope this has answered all of your questions. Thanks so much for stopping by and if you have anymore questions let me know and I would be glad to answer them for you.
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.

One last note. I’ve been asked what I think of other affiliate marketing resources, both free and paid. I’m familiar with some of them, not all. I’ve read ebooks, watch videos, bought courses and more. So far, the only paid-for course that has impressed me enough to recommend is Kayla Aimee’s Affiliate Acceleration: Impactful Strategies To Increase Your Passive Income.
You should be able to Register At The Premium Level just fine. On the order screen where it asks you to pick your country, I would try and select another country from the list that is supported and see if you are able to join by doing this. If this still doesn’t help I could send Kyle(The Co-Owner of WA)a PM and inform him of this and see what he can do about it.
I’m a student and a complete newbie to this online business. Don’t have the slightest idea how to put together a website or blog or write content, let a alone drive traffic to them to earn money, sounds like a mountain to climb. Nonetheless I am an internet addict(could spend close to 10hrs online daily). Really desire to be a super affiliate marketer and make money online, can WA hold me by the hand and take me through to my destination with my zero experience?
A quick and inexpensive method of making money without the hassle of actually selling a product, affiliate marketing has an undeniable draw for those looking to increase their income online. But how does an affiliate get paid after linking the seller to the consumer? The answer is complicated. The consumer doesn’t always need to buy the product for the affiliate to get a kickback. Depending on the program, the affiliate’s contribution to the seller’s sales will be measured differently. The affiliate may get paid in various ways:
As a member of Wealthy Affiliate, I highly recommend it myself. I also agree that in order to derive benefit or results, one has to put in sufficient time and energy. But other than that, with the help of WA training and support, the sky’s pretty much the limit. One can have 0 traffic or 100,000 visitors per month depending on how well one follows the instructions or training. I admit I myself have previously not followed all the instructions closely and spent too much wasted time on things that don’t matter very much (at least not in early stage of game) such as obsessing over which WordPress template to use, but now I remind myself to stay on track more and follow instructions.
For starters they make no promises that what you will learn will be able to work on a regular site. The premise behind what they do is based on how blog-style sites work and generate traffic. Yes they do this in a completely different method. You can get traffic easier in a blog than with your web site. But since you "know what you are doing" already, you must have known that. 
24/7 Live Chat- Got a burning question that you need an instant answer to? No matter what time of the day or night it is there is always someone in live chat who will be there to answer your questions (Even at 4 in the morning) As a matter of fact, the owners Kyle and Carson are in chat several times daily to answer any questions or issues you may have.
This usually happens when you are signing up from the same IP address as someone who currently has a WA account. This could also happen if you are trying to sign up from the same computer as someone with an active WA account. If neither of these situations apply to you then I would send Kyle an email Kyle@wealthyaffiliate.com (Co founder of WA) and explain whats going on to him and he will get your account setup for you.
Once you start going through the training and get some content on your site you will be presented with the opportunity to submit your website to the community and have as many members as you want to provide you with some valuable feedback. Updating the content on your site may seem difficult at first, but you’ll find that this will get easier the more you do it.
Don’t take this statement as a rule but if you do go through WA training and build your business the way WA teaches you I don’t see why you can’t make $50,000+ in your first year. Most beginner internet marketers fail online because they do not follow a plan of action, get distracted by new shiny products that promise millions overnight and because they do not take enough action. Wealthy Affiliate will help you with all of it: Provide you with a realistic plan of action, courses that you need to follow and tasks you need to complete. Stay focused and you will be successful. Need more motivation? Check out some of my earning:
Hello Scott, my comment and question is this; If I do not have a regular credit card but only a prepaid credit card, then I will not be able to join your company, correct? Or you will say I must pay for the full year, which obviously I can not do,in order to be an affiliate member, correct? I must say that your company sounds about the best of all I have researched but some folks,like myself,just can’t afford a regular credit card so we are precluded from offers like this. Your comment would be appreciated. Thanks
This was, by far, the most detailed and thorough review of Wealthy Affiliate I have ever read. Personally, I have been with Wealthy Affiliate for more than two years. I spent nearly six months loitering on the free starter membership before jumping into premium and then, of course, on to yearly premium. In hindsight, I wish I had jumped in much sooner. 
The keyword research tool is a unique in-house tool. It's different than any other tool out there because it shows you how many websites are targeting your exact keyword. This is invaluable. With unlimited searches, you'll be able to find hundreds of low-competition keywords to target on your website. This means you'll be able to get on the first page much easier since you know how much competition you have.
So it begs the question – I would love to work from a laptop anywhere in the world with good internet , but how on earth do I get started when I have no business idea? I feel lost as all my life i’ve been an accountant but pretty ‘clued up’. I love ‘hustling’ – buying and reselling stuff i find on the cheap, and I always felt an entrepreneurial streak as I love burning the midnight oil when it’s my own work. I’m real sick of the corporate life and am about to finish up at my job after being ‘shafted’ on the probation period (told i was great, good, then suddenly now it was extended and i’m terrible, don’t fit in etc. etc). I really just want to shove it at life and work for myself but what always holds me back isn’t so much going for a course or learning how to do things – but I just don’t know what idea/niche I want to pursue! I just have confidence and am curious about my entrepreneurial streak and ability to push forward – except I don’t have a guiding idea or business/niche in mind? Any advice/help? I haven’t seen your online business yet, so I am not sure what your online business sells – but I arrived here when googling your direct wines review on scams… again another attempt at seeing if I could ‘work for myself’. but alas another one of those get rich quick schemes that get rich off your back more like it.
I’m a student and a complete newbie to this online business. Don’t have the slightest idea how to put together a website or blog or write content, let a alone drive traffic to them to earn money, sounds like a mountain to climb. Nonetheless I am an internet addict(could spend close to 10hrs online daily). Really desire to be a super affiliate marketer and make money online, can WA hold me by the hand and take me through to my destination with my zero experience?

…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!


I feel that the premium membership is the best choice that I have ever made and the training is the best I have ever seen. I would suggest that you open your FREE account, fill out your profile by adding a picture and writing a brief description about yourself and then check out everything that WA has to offer. If you have any questions along the way I will be there to answer them for you and help you get started.
I would suggest that you get started by opening up your FREE account by clicking on the “JOIN NOW” button above. When you join I will be there to help you out every step of the way. If you have any questions or need my help with anything let me know. I really am looking forward to working with you Andrew and helping you get started with your own online business. If you have anymore questions please let me know and I would be more then happy to help you out.
If you want to make money and learn how to build a thriving online business I would highly recommend that you invest in yourself by going premium. It’s actually the best decision I’ve ever made and I know you won’t regret it. The best thing about affiliate marketing is that you don’t need to keep inventory and there’s no need to have a warehouse full of merchandise.

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.
Want to know a little secret about this site? When I first started this site, I only planned on monetizing by selling my OWN affiliate marketer training course. About halfway through creating my course, I realized that I would never be able to provide the type of quality product I intended. Even if I could, it would become outdated so fast that in just a couple years, I wouldn’t be able to sell it anymore.
