The reason you got this notification is because the starter membership isn’t available in your country. It is in NO WAY a spam website as they have a very strict spam free policy that you must abide by when you join. You must live in either Nigeria or India as these are the only 2 countries that I know of where the starter membership isn’t available.
That being said, I want to give you an idea of what I earn, so you can see what's possible. I don't like to “show off”, but here's income proof. These screenshots prove that yes, I actually make money online. I've been making over $10,000 per month for many years now. You'll have to ​make your first dollar​​​ before you earn ten thousand though, so keep reading below to see how you can get started doing the same type of business I do.

Hi Jack, I’m thinking of joining WA but I don’t want to do anything but promote WA afffiliate website and how much will that cost me? How can I make money with that and what is the compensation plan just by doing the WA affiliate? I don’t want to find a niche and build my own website. I’m not a writer so I don’t want to do this kind of marketing where you write blogs and articles. Will I still be able to make money with WA with less to do?
 First and foremost I do Buisness with Wealthy Affiliate and as the first time building my online business I have earned income by referring my friends, colleges and family member to WA and I had build my own sites afar from WA and selling products ALREADY!! They are NOT A SCAM!! Unlike other business like Aspire Digital Altitude or Counter Profits etc.... As my experience continues with Wealthy Affiliates they were the most inexpensive services provided and not just only that there are other people that already has online business thatg needed more training to have their business to drive more traffic through the search engines for cheaper price on the plug ins versus an outsource other than Wealthy Affiliate.
My intent isn’t to make this Wealthy Affiliate review yet another digital sales pitch. As I searched for Wealthy Affiliate reviews, I noticed the vast majority of them are very one sided, don’t offer any other options, and are simply biased sales pitches from affiliate marketers trying to make a buck. So, in MY Wealthy Affiliate review, I’m going to do things a bit differently. Here are some of the topics I’d like to cover…
With that said, I want to fully disclose that I am indeed an affiliate for Wealthy Affiliate. If you click on any of my affiliate links, like this one, I get credit in the event you sign up for a paid membership option. 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.

I wouldn’t advise you to build a website about a celebrity as this could possibly result in some legal issues. I’m not sure how you would earn any money by simply writing about celebrity news and posting pics of them. The whole idea here lola is to build a website based on something you’re passionate about or a hobby of yours. What kind of things are you interested in and what could you see yourself writing about for the next couple of years without getting bored with it?
When people do a Google search for a review about the best Iphone 6 cases your review pops up and they click on it, read it, and want more information about it. You’ll need to apply to affiliate programs from reputable companies like Amazon, Walmart, Best Buy, and Target just to name a few. You’ll be given your own special unique affiliate link when you join which keeps track of your clicks and whenever someone makes a purchase through your link.

At this point, you should already have content written on your website, you know how to generate traffic and you might be getting traffic. So, on this phase you will learn ways of converting that traffic into revenue. There are plenty of ways of generating income with your website, so pay attention carefully. As said before, Phase 1,2 and 3 are super important to your success.
He didn't want me to write, but I just felt the need. So, here I am. No, I wasn't dumb enough to pay for it, but it seems that, unless you want to be a Wealthy Affiliate robot you are not welcome, and will be coaxed VERY tenderly into paying for it. In fact, I was told that the core of what I wanted to learn was in fact in the premium membership, lucky me! If I was some poor beginning I would've fallen, green money hard.  
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.
I’m glad that you were able to find my site. I like to think of WA as your 1 stop shop for just about anything you want to learn about online/affiliate marketing. They teach SEO, PPC, Email marketing, Video Marketing, and everything in between. The training offered at OMG doesn’t quite live up to my standards, and it’s extremely overpriced in my opinion.
First of all the allegations of a pyramid scheme. Since you have looked up the definition you probably know that a pyramid scheme requires downlines and several levels to the pyramid. That’s something you won’t find at WA. Many people join directly through the home page without being referred. Others might join under an affiliate and that affiliate earns a commission. There are no levels. Amazon’s got the exact same business strategy, does that make them a pyramid scheme? Some new members even get upset when they find out that Wealthy Affiliate is not an MLM. These people leave rather fast because they realize they need to actually build a real business instead of just recruiting.
The truth is, building an online business is not a perfect fir for everyone. Entrepreneurship is not for everyone and Wealthy Affiliate is not for everyone. One of the biggest differences between WA and many other training platform is the barrier of entry, WA is free to join. Sure, the free membership doesn’t give access to all of the training but it gives more than enough for a person to decide if they like the platform or not. Unfortunately some people want a free (or very cheap) training, support and they also want a profitable niche handed to them on a silver plate.
My name is Jamie Spencer and I have spent the past 5 years building money making blogs. After growing tired of the 9-5, commuting and never seeing my family I decided that I wanted to make some changes and launched my first blog. Since then I have launched lots of successful niche blogs and after selling my survivalist blog I decided to teach other people how to do the same.
Great review Chris, I am a WA member and I love the training they provide.  I think that that the program offers good value for money and I love the community.  If I have a question I know there is someone that can help me in a very short period of time.  JohnHB mentioned there are no upsells within this program and It’s one of the reasons why I chose this training program.  You really covered this review well.  
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:

No, you don’t need to be a great writer to build a website and be very successful online. When I first started here 3 years ago my spelling was really poor and my grammar was horrible. However, I didn’t let that stop me from reaching my goal to become successful online, and the more I did it the better I got at it. There are also tools out there that check your grammar and spelling and I think that’s what helped me the most.
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.
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.

The business that I started with the help of WA is this website you are visiting right now. This is where I make most of my money, I have a few others that makes me a couple hundred a month. I am currently enrolled in the boot camp program that Wealthy Affiliate has. This website is the outcome of the boot camp training and it has been one wild ride.
Affiliate marketers usually choose between a resource site and a review site for the type of content they intend to provide for their readers. A resource site contains all the information about products related to the industry and needs to be updated regularly so that it is top-of-mind for the customers. You post articles that generally talk about the industry, give overviews of new launches, talks about the changes in the industries, post how-to articles, and more.

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. This program has changed a lot in the past 11 years and you can try it out completely Free. 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.
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.
When you sign up for Wealthy Affiliate I will be there to help you out every step of the way. I will be getting in contact with you within 60 minutes of you joining to welcome you to the community and to answer any questions you might have. When I frirst started down the road of Internet marketing it was tough, and I needed all the support and guidance that I could get. If you have any questions or need help getting started I will be there to guide you all the way.

I know the difference between other programs I joined before and WA. That’s why to me, WA is the best program I have ever known existing online. Let me assure anyone with doubts to try WA and you will see it’s the best program to start an online business with. Try it and you will find it the best program online. That’s my own opinion based on my experience on the many programs I joined before. Thanks so much Scott


On the other hand, Wealthy Affiliate will be most worth it if you are a beginner to affiliate marketing and have no idea how or where to start. There is an overload of information on the internet and while you can probably find everything you need to know online, they are not in a very structured format - hence one value is the step-by-step tutorials and guides that Wealthy Affiliate has to cater to people of varying levels of experience (even if you are a complete non-tech person.
There are many other online forums and programs that talk about making money online but whenever you ask a simple question many users will reply with: “Dude, this stupid question has been asked many times before – just google it!” – You will not get this kind of reply on WA. Wealthy Affiliate is a learning center so there are no stupid questions, every question is important and people will try to answer it as well as they can. However if you do not feel comfortable asking a question (don’t be shy, just ask!) you could simply look through the resources and questions other people asked – I can almost guarantee you will find your answer within minutes.
I’ll explain why my review of Wealthy Affiliate and how it can and will benefit you in due course but if you are looking for an opportunity to learn and build a legitimate online business that I can’t suggest or think of a better platform to build on. Wealthy Affiliate I believe is one of the oldest standing and probably the most innovative online business community with an abundance of like minded people who help each other grow.
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.
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.
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.

Use your personal words & experience with the product. Your own content, or photos & videos of yourself using the product are always the most effective. For example, many affiliate programs provide swipe copy to their affiliates which is pre-written emails, post material or social media posts. These can be helpful as a guide, but they often scream swipe copy, aren’t written in your voice (the one your readers know!) and if a lot of affiliates are using it, are overdone.

You can do this all 100% from the comfort of your home or in your case the farm. The WA website is a training center that teaches you Internet marketing and I like to think of it more like a online college. They teach you how to market a variety of products and services online and you can even learn how to create and market your own products and have other people sell them for you. The training walks you through how to do all of this and you are provided with all the necessary tools needed to get up and running including 2 free websites when you join.
If you get started with the training it will walk you through each lesson and give you a few tasks to complete for each one. Depending on how hard you work at this it is possible to reach $1000 in 6 months time. The thing about this business is you will get out of it what you put into it. If you work really hard at this and learn all you can about building your online business you will be very successful.
I already have a website and a domain name. My website is made with WordPress, and GoDaddy hosts the website. Would I have to move my website to another host, that is part of WA? Also I am thinking of keeping the website much the same way it is now(with a few changes). I already have a blog page, can I just add my links there? I have a gardening business, and I want to talk about ergonomic tools, pads, sun hats, shoes, bug spray, garden related art or jewelry, proper use of one’s body while gardening, getting the most from your gardening and achieving health and wellness through gardening. Not just the movement of digging, or hauling mulch, but with every technique I teach.
Hello Chris, I am planning to join Wealthy Affiliate as a premium. But I am a 33-yr old woman who does not have a common sense like I get from most people. I am also a woman who does not have that much intellectual capacity. So I’m not sure how much my brain can comprehend and how much my brain can take all the information from WA. Do you think I should just give it a try?
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?
I’m really glad you are enjoying the reviews! I can totally relate to how you must feel about devoting months of your time to a business that you aren’t 100% sure if you will ever start making any money from. Believe me I was very skeptical about joining and wondering if I was wasting my time by building a website that nobody would visit or buy anything from me. Now that I look back, I am glad that I stuck with it because it is definitely paying off now.
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.
There are two ways to approach affiliate marketing: You can offer an affiliate program to others or you can sign up to be another business's affiliate. As the business driving an affiliate program, you'll pay your affiliates a commission fee for every lead or sale they drive to your website. Your main goal should be to find affiliates who'll reach untapped markets. For example, a company with an e-zine may make a good affiliate because its subscribers are hungry for resources. So introducing your offer through a "trusted" company can grab the attention of prospects you might not have otherwise reached.
You can get started for free by clicking on the blue “Become A Member” button above. Simply provide a valid email address and create a username and password and you’re in. I will be getting in contact with you within 60 minutes of you joining to see if you are finding your way around the community OK, answering any questions you may have, and providing you with the link to your first training lesson.
You are provided with 2 free websites to get you started and these are a sub domain and have the siterubix extension at the end of them (For example howtomakemoneyonline.siterubix.com) With the premium membership you get 25 of these sub domains as well as the ability to host 25 domains that you own on WA’s state of the art secure and high speed hosting that’s included with your premium membership.
Personally, for me I was able to reach this goal in only 10 short months and my income continues to grow every month. I would suggest that you get the ball rolling by signing up for your FREE account here. Once you have opened your account you should get started by setting up your profile by adding a pic of yourself or using one of the ones WA provides you with. After that, you should write a little something in your description so that the community can get to know you better and offer you the most help.
Tasty Links is our latest plugin and it allows bloggers to automagically ✨ create links for certain keywords. That way, you won’t have to keep manually adding in a link for “all-purpose flour” every time you mention it in your post. It’s a set-it-and-forget-it type of deal, and it makes earning affiliate income that much easier! We talked about how to maximize your affiliate revenue with the plugin here.
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.

Unfortunately some people want a free (or very cheap) training, support and they also want a profitable niche handed to them on a silver plate.
I must admit that I like this tool a lot. Not only because it's the cheapest in the market but also due to all the features included (i.e. SSL certificate, Privacy protection, email accounts and premium DNS). The best part is that all this features are already included in the price of the Domain cost. Just take a look at the comparison table below between Wealthy Affiliate and other big Domain Name companies:
To answer your question about what are you getting paid for. You are starting up your own online business and learning how to build a website from scratch. There are thousands of people everyday that are looking for reviews of different products (just like you did for Ameriplan) They usually like to read a review of something before they buy it. This is where you could come in with your website about a passion or hobby of yours. There are affiliate programs for just about anything that is sold online.
Making money… that’s also a different story. I made my very first commission within 10 days of starting my WA training. It was $33 and it was late 2007. I have been making a full time income online since early 2008. Some people will see income within a week while others will take months to get there. It’s just like starting any business, online or offline. Results will vary based on many different things. Unfortunately many people jump into online business thinking they will get rich quick without doing much work and that’s a wrong mindset. If you start an offline business you’ll have to spend 2-3-4 years without salary, just making your investment back. You’ll also need $50,000 – $500,000 to start that business. While online you can start virtually with zero money and you’ll see results a lot faster than in a traditional brick and mortar business. If you want to see instant results than a business is not for you. Online or offline.

Hey Hugh, You definitely do not need to be a professional writer to be able to make money online. Writing has never been my strong point and I suffered with this all through my high school years and I pretty much hated writing. I didn’t let that stop me from achieving success online and I don’t think anyone should let that stop them from living their dreams. I am living proof that anyone can do this no matter what your skill level is or if you don’t know the first thing about this business. In the year and a half I have been doing this I have learned more than I ever have in my entire life. I owe it all to Wealthy Affiliate and their awesome training lessons and their willingness to help anyone setup a business online.

Let’s say you have a promotions page where you’re promoting a product via affiliate links. If you currently get 5,000 visits/month at a 2% conversion rate, you have 100 referrals. To get to 200 referrals, you can either focus on getting 5,000 more visitors, or simply increasing the conversion rate to 4%. Which sounds easier? Instead of spending months on blogging, SEO, and social media marketing to get more traffic, you just have to increase the conversion rate by 2%. This can include landing page optimization, testing your calls-to-action, and having a conversion rate optimization strategy in place. By testing and optimizing your site, you’ll get far better results with much less effort.

Wealthy Affiliate is pretty good at catching spammers, but that's only when someone reports them. If you're in live chat and someone offers to build your website for you because you're struggling and they're a pro, don't do it. They're just trying to cripple you and get you dependent on them. After you're dependent on them, they'll try to charge you for their services.

Affiliate marketers usually choose between a resource site and a review site for the type of content they intend to provide for their readers. A resource site contains all the information about products related to the industry and needs to be updated regularly so that it is top-of-mind for the customers. You post articles that generally talk about the industry, give overviews of new launches, talks about the changes in the industries, post how-to articles, and more.

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.
You could definitely use this as a starting point and take the knowledge you already have about outdoor water sports and expand on it. There are many different things you could discuss on your website. If there’s something you don’t know that much about you can always do research on the topic and have more then enough information to write about it. If you can help other people out in this niche(Topic) you can turn this into a full time business that makes full time money.
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. Wealthy Affiliate Scam Review 2018 - Is Wealthy Affiliate Worth It?
