Wow, what a thorough, and detailed review of Wealthy Affiliate. You have answered all of my questions, and then some. I now feel as though I have the information I need to make an educated decision. I am amazed at all of the benefits and training that Wealthy Affiliate provides, and 2 free websites to start out with. Anyone that has an interest in this program needs to see this review. Well done, and thanks for sharing. Tom

The best part about Affiliate U is the guy who runs it is a hustler. He has a no BS attitude, rolls up his sleeves, and gets sh*t done. The worst part is, he's always hustling so he doesn't have time to focus on the course. The course seems more like a side project than a central focus of the owner. I like hearing him speak and like reading his Facebook posts. They're motivational and his attitude is awesome. But the course itself is lacking some of the essentials.
In some instances – like when the affiliate link is embedded in your product review – a single disclosure may be adequate. When the review has a clear and conspicuous disclosure of your relationship and the reader can see both the review containing that disclosure and the link at the same time, readers have the information they need. You could say something like, “I get commissions for purchases made through links in this post.” But if the product review containing the disclosure and the link are separated, readers may not make the connection.
I just Google “[product type] + affiliate program.” So if you want to promote e-cigs. You would Google, “e-cig affiliate programs” or something of that nature. I like going with companies who have had an affiliate program for a while. Companies with new programs often times are late with payments and/or don’t convert as well as the well established companies.
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.
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 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.
When I first started, it took me 2 hours during weekdays and 4 hours or more during weekends, and this schedule lasted for about 4 to 5 months. (That is till I got my first commission) Then now it is about 1 hour every weekday and 2 hours during weekends. Of course, I will work more if I have the time because I am passionate about my online business.
Basically, anyone who is looking to make money fast should stay away from Wealthy Affiliate. There are plenty of “make money fast” e-books and courses out there, and they are all a scam (trust me). While Wealthy Affiliate is legit, they will absolutely never claim that they teach you how to make money fast. Building a legitimate online business takes time.
There are a variety of different ways you can get paid. Depending on which affiliate programs you sign up with you can get paid through Paypal which is how I get paid and it’s the most common way. Lots of affiliate programs also pay you through direct deposit to your bank account. You simply enter your details when you sign up and after you start making sales they will deposit your earnings into your account. You could also choose to get a check in the mail if you would prefer to get paid this way.
What kind of commission do they offer? One-time commissions or recurring commissions? For example, many programs pay you one time for sending a customer. On the other hand, some programs like membership sites or SaaS (software as a service) programs will pay you a commission as long as the person you referred is a paying customer. Recurring commissions are great when you can find them!
There are a few different payment options that Wealthy Affiliate will accept. These include Paypal as being the safest and most popular one. If you don’t have a Paypal account you can sign up for one for free by going to Paypal.com. Besides taking regular Visa or Master cards you could also do an e-check from your bank and pay for your WA subscription that way.
4.You can earn anywhere from 4%-75% commission on each item that people buy using your affiliate link. Depending on if its a physical or digital product. Digital products usually pay a lot higher commission because they can be sent to customers email address instead of sending it through the mail. Amazon starts you out at 4% and you can work your way up to earning 10% commission on everything you sell from your website.
That training is outdated and no longer available on WA. That was from back in 2012 I believe and the training courses have been updated since then for 2015-2016. That was actually a street articles challenge(Which Kyle & Carson Also Own) back when I first started here in 2012. They don’t edit or review your articles before they get published, but you can submit your site to their website feedback section to have it reviewed by other members of the community.
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’ve heard of AWOL but don’t have personal experience with it. Personally I doubt I would ever join a program that costs about $15,000 (if you go through all of their products). Also the fact that you need to pay a monthly $40 in order to be their affiliate doesn’t make sense to me. Since I have not purchased their training I can’t judge its quality but I’m certain all the required training to the world of online marketing can be obtained for a lot less money.
Hi Scott. Well I must say, you certainly have made this sound very attractive. For the past year I have just been trying to figure out how all this works. ( I’m 49 ) I am not Tech Savvy!! Did not actually get my very first computer till a year & 1/2 ago( Don’t know what took so long 🙁 ). The Internet world, ( so I have heard it called ) is a scarry place :(, and if you want to become involved in it like I do, it’s hard to know where to start, who to beleive, who to listen to, very scarry. But I truly have to say that after reading your review of WA, I do feel alot more comfortable about finley finding someplace to start. I will be joing your program later this morning, after the birds wake up 🙂 (it’s only 5am right now). I would like to Thank You for the time you have put in to this review of WA, and giving me the sense of finally being able to say, I can trust this guy Scott. You have a nice day, and I do look forward to talking with you more down the road.
Hi there, The greatest thing about affiliate marketing is you don’t need your own products to be able to make money. Affiliate marketing is just one of the many ways that you can make money online. If you really are interested in a opportunity like this then I think you owe it to yourself to check out Wealthy Affiliate and see if this is something you are interested in doing. You can get started for Free and there is no risk whatsoever.
Take advantage of marketing tools whenever possible. Many affiliate programs offer useful resources to their affiliates aimed at helping affiliates make more sales. These range from monthly newsletters highlighting upcoming sales, tips or affiliate case studies, Facebook Groups just for affiliates, private webinars explaining marketing strategies in depth and more. Ultimate Bundles does this exceptionally well.

I googled a product provider like Amazon and saw how much It would cost me to actually make a partnership with them, I was surprise to find it was free for the first month but than I saw after that, it was $25 per month? And than I was horrified to read further down the email that was sent to me, Kyle, claiming it took him three whole months just to earn his first dollar! I would have lost $50 by the time I saw my first dollar, which would have been about 80p because I live in the United Kingdom.
Scott~ I am interested in WA and seeing if I can “make it work”. Definitely willing to give it my all. But, I am looking to sign under someone who is definitely 100% available for support. In other words, not just leaving the support to what we get under WA, and not saying you’re there for support but that being just a sales pitch. I have found by experience that sometimes the individual you sign up under is very slow in responding or doesn’t check in periodically to see how you are doing or if you have any questions. They wait until they are contacted. I have signed up for a totally different on-line business venture, but the individual I signed under has NEVER contacted me. My only support comes from within the company itself. Definitely was just a sales pitch!
Also, don’t forget that I will be there to help you out every step of the way Kathy and answer any questions you may have as well as help you out if you ever feel stuck. I really am looking forward to working with you Kathy and helping you build a business you can be proud of and I hope this has answered your questions. If you have any more questions feel free to either send me an email here or simply reply to this comment.

If you would like to take a more subtle approach, include a product or service from your company that relates into your blog post. For example, let’s say that you are a wine connoisseur and that is what your blog is based around. In any post that is enticing your readers to open up a good bottle of Merlot or what have you, it would be wise to embed an ad for a quality, easy-to-use wine opener, wine glasses or stoppers that keep the wine fresh.

Also for a very limited time, if you join for at least a month I will be doing FREE one-on-one 30 minute coaching call for the first 10 people that sign up. I am very busy with my other projects, so I can't take do this for long. But if you sign up after 7 days, you will get a link where you can book your one-on-one session. I usually charge $99 per session, but you can get this for free when you sign up this month.
Cookie stuffing involves placing an affiliate tracking cookie on a website visitor's computer without their knowledge, which will then generate revenue for the person doing the cookie stuffing. This not only generates fraudulent affiliate sales but also has the potential to overwrite other affiliates' cookies, essentially stealing their legitimately earned commissions.
Also, having been priviledged to serve on the Board Of Directors of the Network Marketing industry’s professional association for 4 years, representing Canada (ANMP.com – Association of Network Marketing Professionals), a global, non-profit organization, which serves to educate, protect and support Network Marketers) – I guess I do feel somewhat “protective” of this industry.
I hope you found this Wealthy Affiliate review to be helpful as I put a lot of time into this, but if I didn’t answer a question you have, feel free to comment below, and I will try to give you the best answer I can. The bottom line is, Wealthy Affiliate is the absolute best place I have ever seen to get the training and all the tools you’ll ever need in one place. Plus, if you sign up using my affiliate link, I will personally provide 1 on 1 coaching for you. At the very last, you should consider signing up for the free membership first and just see what you think. If you’re serious about growing an online business, my guess is you’ll be more than satisfied.
Becoming a part of an affiliate network is an excellent strategy for bloggers looking to up their current income or even just to begin actually making money from their blog. There are several options when it comes to affiliate marketing as well as strategies for making affiliate marketing work for you. Below I will teach you what is affiliate marketing, examples of affiliate marketing in blogging, affiliate strategies and some of the top affiliate networks to join.
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.

The wellness and organic living could be a very profitable niche to get involved with. With the help and support of WA you should be able to get started in this niche with no problem. (especially since you said you were passionate about it) If you follow the training and take action on what you have learned you will find it easy to have a website setup in no time selling these kinds of products.


Absolute fraud. They will let you join community and have access “to all the knowledge in the world” they will provide some links that will actually not be any more helpful than any regular youtube video that you can get for free. And they will offer initial one month trial fee but after that automatically charge your credit card even if you don’t want to extend with them. Of course they will not tell you this. After that wealthy affiliate will bomb you with emails to join again pay again, extend your membership. All automatically pre made emails for every single holiday new emails will arrive with new offers, telling you they are sorry you left and that WA became so much better, just come back pay again and see for yourself 🙂 They also made through WA lot of “honest” WA review websites that will tell you how they are legit. I didnt understand all this before I gave them my money.
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.

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.
Thanks for the informative article! I’m just wondering since I signed up for some course in the past but they required more time time investment than I expected. As I have some other personals goals so I’m just wondering as you said it takes few weeks to get things up and running, but getting commission is different story. So what is required after having website done to get commission? and How long would that take? and how much time does it take to for regular maintenance? Thanks so much!
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]
The training will walk you through this same process and show you how to get on the first page of Google as well. I will be there to help you out and answer any questions you have about the training so don’t hesitate to let me know when you have any questions. I really am looking forward to working with you and I hope we can get you setup with your very own starter account.
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. 🚨Wealthy Affiliate Review 2018 + $5k/month Strategy REVEALED🚨
