Unfortunately, the starter membership isn’t available in India. This happens to be one of the countries that has a high level of fraud and it’s on the list of countries excluded from the starter membership. You can still join the premium membership and you qualify to receive 59% off your first month meaning you can try out everything WA has to offer without paying full price.
Hi Scott, I just posted this question, maybe you can input some feedback as well, I would appreciate it…thanks! Hi, Maybe I missed something….the print is so small I couldn’t read the content…Just finished going through lesson ten and my question is: how will money be generated off this website? are there any links to redirect people to buy a specific ‘How To Reduce Belly Fat’ product or is it that just by accessing the website you get paid or how does it work? Please explain…Thank you!!:
On WA coaching material there is no separate indexing of the "lessons". A point missed can be found again but not by going through any master index which would be crossreferencing ideas & locations...thus depriving us of a a way to get back to where ideas are first presented in the training. Without that we are forced to stumble through videos again and again which is very frustrating & time consuming activity or we must ask people instead. This flaw in the training presentation makes me wonder if the clumsier and slower learning which might result...is as "rewarding" to the CEO (in the form of longer lasting subscriptions) as is is "punishing" to the member?
And finally, I find that it is almost too easy to communicate with people! I love helping people and meeting new people in the industry, but as a successful affiliate marketer, I do get bombarded with so many questions from people I don’t even know. For that reason, I try to keep my responses prioritised by always responding to those who I referred through my affiliate link. Heck, they helped me earn a few bucks, so why shouldn’t they get priority? While this system works, I do sometimes feel bad at my super late response times for many of those trying to get some help.
My major concern is this. From what I garner, having great blogging skills in a niche area of your choice and wealth of knowledge (and hard work of course) is integral to having a successful business online. Thus, I will like to know how WA might help in honing those blogging skills for those that are newbies or don’t have the knowledge depth in their niche field to be confident on blogging about it. Like are there methodologies in place to take a newbie to a decent and possibly professional blogging level? Even if this might sound apparent; with your experience, will researching in the niche choice help to fill the knowledge gap to a level where you can start posting quality contents on the website/blog?
You don’t have to pay the $47 to make money, it is possible to make money using your free account. However, it will just be more of a challenge to do so. I would suggest that you sign up for your Free account, check out everything that is offered and go from there. There is a 59% discount to all new members which makes it only $19 for your first month, but that is totally up to you. There is no pressure to upgrade to premium at anytime.

Hi Jack, as a member affiliate of WA yourself, do you get a referral commission fee if I was to join via your link? If so how much is the commission and as a basic or free member would I get referral commissions and how much. Please explained and breakdown the commission structure. Also is the commission as a one off or it is recurring every month i.e a percentage of the monthly fees of the members joined via you. Please clarify. Many thanks
When I first started here I had 0 experience in any kind of marketing and online marketing took a while for me to get the hang of how everything works. Once you start going through the training and you start completing the lessons things will start to make sense to you. I will be there for you if you don’t understand something or if you have any questions.
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.
…But doesn’t being an affiliate for Wealthy Affiliate make me just another one of those affiliate marketers who is being biased and just trying to make a buck off of you? Well, ummmm…. Sort of! But at least I’m honest about it, right? I hope you give me a chance by continuing to read this Wealthy Affiliate review. I have no intention of making this one big sales pitch. I just want to provide you with the information and allow you to make your own decision. If I get a commission, great! If not, that’s ok too. Here’s a screenshot of my Wealthy Affiliate profile.
A: No, You don’t! Wealthy Affiliate does provide an amazing affiliate program but you aren’t obliged to promote it to make money. Unlike MLMs and other “business opportunities” WA will never force you to annoy your friends and family by trying to push them into your “downline”. WA is mostly about teaching you how to set-up a real online business where you could sell any service or product that you can find in stores or online.
Thanks! by time I would finish reading your article i have made my conclusion of what to say about it. I say, it is because of your honesty that is your success in this field. You tell it like it is. You know, before starting to read your article, i was in kind of hurry to move on but every next words keep pulling me like a magnet until i read all of it. Great info, Great perspective, Great lessons to apply.
While on-page SEO is like the body of car, off-page SEO is like the engine. Without a solid foundational body, the entire site will fall apart. But with no off-page SEO, the beautiful website will just sit there going unnoticed. Despite what you might have heard, links are still one of the biggest factor to getting your site ranked high in Google.
Know when (and when not) to use Viglinks and Skimlinks. If you applied to an affiliate program but were denied, you might be able to still be an affiliate for that advertiser through a secondary affiliate program like VigLink or Skimlinks. Basically, they themselves are affiliates and will split their affiliate commission with you if you put their affiliate link in your content for an advertiser. Obviously, the commission rate is lower for you in this case, so if you ever are accepted into the advertiser’s affiliate program directly, immediately switch from using VigLink / Skimlinks affiliate links to your own.
This is actually the perfect schedule for you to work on this. If you can work on this 4 days a week you will be getting the foundation of your business in place and making some really nice progress along the way. I think this is going to work out really nicely for you Sameer if you are willing to work hard and follow simple step by step directions.
I’m starting out with my WA site and jouny right now. And I’m going to use alot of clickbank products! Was it hard and slow at first to start? You really inspired me to hit this hard! I know it wont be over night. Its it will take a lot of hard work. But I’m ok with that. Just want to get an idea of the speed of your progress was. Not at all going to base mine off yours. I know it will be differant for everyone. Again thank you for the insiration and feed back! Also i’m going to start another site but after I get this one going LoL. Really want to work for myself. Thank again 🙂 Zach
It doesn't teach you how to get on the first page of Google at all. That's a huge part of affiliate marketing. What good is it to have a well-built site if nobody sees it? No, it doesn't teach how to run ads either. It just teaches you how to look for niches, find keywords, and build a website. I had high hopes for this course but was disappointed after joining.
The community aspect is also something that I really love and something other programs fail to provide. If you have difficulty with anything in the process, many members will able to help you instantly in WA Live Chat but what I love most is that people share their ideas and experiences. Listen to these experiences, learn from other people’s mistakes and brainstorm with others!
But I can say that they definitely teach a system that will help you make money online (my wife has used this course to sell SEO services so I know it works for a fact). I'm not interested in selling SEO services personally, but if you are it's a good place to learn how to do it. I wouldn't recommend them for affiliate marketing because that section is pretty thin.
Thank you for the kind words and I would love to show you how to make money online just as I do. If you haven’t already I would get started by creating your FREE account by clicking the sign up button above. Get started by filling out your profile by uploading a picture of yourself or use one of the images WA provides you with. Then you will want to fill out your profile description by telling the community a little about yourself and what goals you would like to work towards.
I don't have time to la-dee-dah here. Just tell me where to go! If I feel that I need to take a few steps back I will. But no. Kyle HIMSELF made a rude comment to me. This girl suggested that I watch the Alphabet Soup section of the training, that it would help. I said this was for keyword help, and I don't need that. Kyle said that if I didn't know what keywords were for, then I had no business being on the internet. Excuse me??? I was simply stating that SHE did not understand, and led me somewhere I ALREADY KNEW ABOUT. He was rude. And within seconds revoked my ability to respond with his powerful finger.
It is hard to say how much you can make but I have seen people make money on the free membership. You should keep in mind that this is a business and if you treat it like a business you will have much more success at it. Some people come into WA on the free membership and follow the training and they see their first sale within a month or 2. Others it takes them longer then that. It all depends on your skill level and how dedicated you are to this.
Wealthy Affiliate saves my life and I can tell you I have been with them for 6 months and already generating income. Yes they say it does take time to work it but you have to make it work as well. Even those like myself never knew how to build a website I manage to make sells already and that's not just selling WA information, but other products I created as my own niche. The negative impacts or comments some.of you have shared about Wealthy Affiliates are wrong. You just dont give the time nor the effort to accomplish the training and materials provided. And as far as assistance online with WA, I got beyond the assistance needed. Wealthy Affiliate I referred over 80 people and they ALL love it!! So with that being said I have no issues with WA. Stop making it seem like they are SCAMMING you out of your money....
When beginning your affiliate marketing career, you’ll want to cultivate an audience that has very specific interests. This allows you to tailor your affiliate campaigns to that niche, increasing the likelihood that you’ll convert. By establishing yourself as an expert in one area instead of promoting a large array of products, you’ll be able to market to the people most likely to buy the product.
I have just started WA and to anybody who is considering this, it has ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING that you need to succeed in affiliate marketing, but it comes with a catch….there is a ton you have to learn. 50 lessons in all. Think of this as going to school to learn a trade. From what I hear on the WA chat, you might make a full time living at it in one, two years or never. The advantage is that it’s a dirt cheap career. But no short cuts here. You gotta work at it, part time, full time, off and on like a lot of people, but everything you need is there. It’s all up to you. The only limitation, the only unknown factor IS YOU.
My name is Nathaniell and you found WA through my site. I remember the comment you left, and I specifically told you to contact me within the website because the basic training did not apply to you and I could find you training that would be more suitable to your needs. I guess you didn't read the response, because you went ahead and went through the training anyway.
If they do make a purchase, the commission will be paid out on a set schedule and/or when you reach a minimum (the minimum depends on the program!). For example, ShareASale, the third-party affiliate network we use, issues payments on the twentieth (20th) day of each month when your account balance reaches over $50 or more for the previous months’ transactions.
The thing that is so different about Wealthy Affiliate is that they will show you the correct and proper way to get started in Internet marketing. Other education platforms are hyped up and they tell you that you will be making thousands of dollars within a couple of weeks which is not true. Wealthy Affiliate is unlike anything else out there because they tell you up front that this will take lots of time and plenty of hard work and they also let you get started for FREE. I would say that if you put in at least a couple hours a day doing this and work really hard at it then you should start seeing some money coming in within your first 3 months. You should keep in mind that you are starting a business from scratch and building it up so it will take some time.
If you did actually cancel your Wealthy Affiliate account before your renewal date and still got charged then I highly suggest getting in touch with WA support or emailing Kyle directly. Glitches happen from time to time and as far as I have seen WA always cancels these kinds of transactions. Also an account cannot be downgraded from Premium to Basic. You can however transfer your website away from WA if you wish to do so, even after you cancel your membership.
Once you've protected your prospecting pool, maximize your affiliate program by working with the best and leaving the rest. As the old 80/20 adage implies, most of your revenue will come from a very small percentage of your affiliates. Because it can be time-consuming to manage a larger affiliate network, consider selecting only a few companies initially, and interview them before signing them on. Affiliates are an extension of your sales force and represent your online brand, so choose partners carefully.
£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!
Always disclose your affiliate relationship. Most visitors will probably understand that graphic ads will lead to your getting paid, but if you write a review or use an in-text link as a recommendation, you want your readers to know that may lead to compensation as well. This ensures you retain transparency and trust with your readers, but also, it's required by the FTC's endorsement rules.
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.
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. Wealthy Affiliate Review - Members Area (Inside Look + FREE Trial)
