Frank, my Girlfriend invested in a system called Digital Altitude some time back, not quite sure what that system consisted of as it sounded a bit strange to me a retired Automotive Tech of 40 plus years! Of course I invested in her hoping it was legal and something legit… Well they are being temporally shut down by the Federal Trade Commission while they’re being investigated… Was going to suggest Wealthy Affiliate! So has Wealthy Affiliate been checked out?
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.

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
If you could take a few minutes and think of any hobbies you have or something you are passionate about, then I can help you find a niche (Topic of interest) and get you started.I hope this has helped you out Greg and I would suggest that you get started by signing up for your Free starter account by clicking on the blue “Become A Member” button above. If you have any other questions or need any additional help before joining please let me know man.
I think that area is where I’m seeing gray and a little confused by. I would LOVE to continue to stay home with my children, but baby daddy (ha) has been on workman’s comp since April when he was seriously Injured and making only 66% of your normal pay can be very debilitating! I’m now needing to find a way to help supplement. I really dislike the idea kf working some blah job and making someone else money. But would I just be making YOU money here ? and needing to recruit others the same way you are trying to do now? I know your review says no, but it’s not making sense.
Although Wealthy Affiliate will teach you different marketing strategies that are very helpful for any kind of business, they do concentrate on affiliate marketing. Affiliate Marketing means that you get paid a commission whenever someone buys a product that you recommend. Most companies offer affiliate programs (Amazon, eBay, Target, Airlines companies, credit card companies, etc.). Since more and more people buy things online instead of going to traditional stores (for obvious reasons) it’s only wise to claim your share of these sales online. What I always loved about WA is that they encourage you to do what you love – this makes running a business a lot more fun and profitable.

Building trust with your audience is paramount in affiliate marketing, and the quickest way to lose trust is to recommend products either you haven’t used before or that aren’t a good fit for your audience. Also make sure you never tell anyone to directly buy a product, you are simply recommending the product. The more helpful you are and the more you make quality recommendations, the more likely your web visitors will come back for your expertise. 
Also, thank you for recommending Noisli. I get very distracted when working, so this white noise would be perfect. Music (classical) and white noise background sounds do help with concentration. It’s like success is handed right to me, I just need to do the work!!! The tools are all there, help and advice are all there, you see real people making real results. Well I can’t confirm that anybody is real online, but you know what I mean. I liked your sense of humor in this post as well. This review also included examples and talked more about how things work, such as the pages and keywords and how it takes time for your keywords to go up in google. It talks about the beginning where you weren’t making any money, but one day it started, and from then on it was making money itself!!!! Thank you for this review as it was extremely helpful and informative.

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.

But, after all the reviews I read, it seems that the only way to make big bucks from WA is through its own affiliate programs. This doesn’t sit well for someone like me who wants to do affiliate in other niches and still earn more than my last corporate job. And… I’m afraid that I would still need to spend a lot of money from media buying (i.e. solo, ads, pps) just to earn back and more.
Concerning WA, free membership is not allowed in my country, and as a member of WA for quit a long time now you should be a able to to tell us the reason(S) why some countries are not eligible for free membership, or is there a communication gap between the WA founder and the members? Because that should have been a very good ground for some newbies like me to start with.
I’m glad you have found my review of WA to be helpful and let me take a few minutes to answer your questions about WA. When you join WA you will be learning how to build your own online business. You do this by choosing something you’re interested in or a hobby of yours and building a website around this hobby. There’s in depth training and task based lessons that walk you through everything from choosing products that are related to your interests to showing you how to apply to companies like Amazon, Target, Best Buy and many other top retailers online that sell these products.
The problem with affiliate marketing, like many other home business options, are the so-called gurus and get-rich-quick programs that suggest affiliate marketing can be done fast and with little effort. Odds are you've read claims of affiliate marketing programs that say you can make hundreds of thousands of dollars a month doing almost nothing ("Three clicks to rich!"). Or, they suggest you can set up your affiliate site, and then forget it, except to check your bank deposits.
^ Shashank SHEKHAR (2009-06-29). "Online Marketing System: Affiliate marketing". Feed Money.com. Archived from the original on 2011-05-15. Retrieved 2011-04-20. During November 1994, CDNOW released its BuyWeb program. With this program CDNOW was the first non-adult website to launch the concept of an affiliate or associate program with its idea of click-through purchasing.
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.
Also, Wealthy Affiliate primarily focuses on building niche websites and driving traffic to them through SEO. If you are more inclined towards another method of affiliate marketing such as through creating membership subscription sites, running e-commerce or drop-shipping sites, or getting traffic through solo ads, then Wealthy Affiliate will not be as worth it to you too.
WA is the only legit place that will teach you how to setup a business online that I have found in my 20+ years of research. If it wasn’t for them I wouldn’t be as successful online as I am today. I don’t want you to feel like you are excluded from this because you aren’t. I will work something out for you so that you can join the premium membership at 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.

It was the complete opposite for my gaming headset site which I only had 3 or 4 reviews written before I made my first sale from Amazon. The competition of your niche also plays a huge part in this as well. As for how many words your articles need to be there is no required length that they need to be in order to get rankings in Google. You just need to make sure that your articles are in depth, and that you are giving people all the information that they need to make a sound decision on whether they should purchase the product that you are recommending or not.
As regards to the final question "Is wealthy Affiliate Worth it?", the answer is Yes. I do recommend it to anyone who is willing to put hard work and effort on his business online. As I said previously on this review, you won't get rich overnight but if you manage to follow the training step by step and you are consistent, I guarantee you that you will se results.
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.
Don’t exhaust all the information about the product with your link. Offer enough information to your readers so they know what the link is, but I don’t recommend giving too much detail on your own site for a two reasons. First, product information, like price, often changes. If you mention the price on your site and someone clicks over and finds a different price, it’s confusing. Second, many times, the product details and features are better explained by the makers of the product. It’s best to stick to your own experience on your site.

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.


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.
I guess what my question is.? Besides the monthly membership payment what else is involved as far as paying out of pocket to become an affiliate online marketer.? What about Fee’s to post on social media sites? Fee for a domain name? Besides 47.00 a month am I looking at around 200 or 500 or a $1000.00 to get up and running after I finish the training and videos? I’m pretty gunho about wanting to do a start up business online. I’m always doing something online figured why not try to supplement my income and have my laptop and Kindle fire and iPhone work for me… If it’s possible can you give me some clarification on total investment before I go ahead and do this. And thank you for your honesty.. I know nothing is guarantee ‘d but I have the drive to try and make a dime or two…. Have a Great day…
This is how the magic happens. When you sign up for an affiliate program, you’ll be assigned a specific ID or username. You’ll use the affiliate program software to generate links to the products you are recommending. Any affiliate links that are generated will contain this ID or username. That way, the merchant knows who’s promoting their product and who to pay!
It’s not my “set up” so I can’t tell you how many people remain for 12 months or longer. There are several people that joined through me in 2008 who are still active members though. Some people build successful businesses and decide to stay on indefinitely because of the constant flow of new information, training and of course the Wealthy Affiliate community.
Focus on reviewing products that fall within your niche. Then, leveraging the rapport you have created with your audience and your stance as an expert, tell your readers why they would benefit from purchasing the product you are promoting. It is especially effective to compare this product to others in the same category. Most importantly, make sure you are generating detailed, articulate content to improve conversions.
Thank you for your reply. Does every one of my domains(free & purchased) must have some articles in order to make sales? Say, if I were to join Amazon Affiliate program for electronics, there also needs to be articles about electronics products display on my domain? Also how long does the articles(also how many words just about?) have to be to be ranked in the first page on google? Also, can I borrow from other articles about electronics and put it in my articles? I may be joining the WA in about 1 week, so I am trying to gather as much last minute information as possible. Please let me know. Thanks again.
Cost per click was more common in the early days of affiliate marketing but has diminished in use over time due to click fraud issues very similar to the click fraud issues modern search engines are facing today. Contextual advertising programs are not considered in the statistic pertaining to the diminished use of cost per click, as it is uncertain if contextual advertising can be considered affiliate marketing.

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.


You also should not join Wealthy Affiliate if you don’t enjoy the community / social aspect of it. A huge part of Wealthy Affiliate is the ability to communicate with other members. It’s a “help and be helped” community. If you have no interest in setting up your profile, asking questions, supporting others, chatting in the live chat sessions, or doing any sort of participation, you will not get the full benefit of the service.
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.
Know when to wait. Some affiliate programs require a certain level of traffic, subscribers, etc. If that’s the case, I say it’s better to wait to apply for that program instead of applying and hoping for the best. You risk being labelled the person who can’t follow guidelines and you might also risk not be allowed into the program when you do meet the qualifications.

As you see above there are lots of people making money as a result of following the training at WA. I would love to see you as the next success story and I will be there every step of the way to help you out in any way I possibly can. The guy pictured above is only 20 years old. He was able to quit his job where he was working at a gas station and barely making $700 a month after just 5 short months of following the training and taking action on what he’s learned.
This is not a get rich quick scheme, but an online training center that teaches how affiliate marketing works. Since you have got a professional work ethnic and you are going to be coming out of the military here soon, now is the perfect time to get started building your future. I will be here to help you out every step of the way Crystal and answer anymore questions you may have.
I’m so glad that you are enjoying WA and I hope you are finding your way around the community. I have bought many programs in the past and they were all scams. Then I found WA and I absolutely love it. The training there is so easy to follow and everything is laid out for you. It’s a blueprint for your success if you follow it closely, and take action on what you learn.
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.
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.
Affilorama – While I promoted Affilorama in the past, I no longer do for many reasons. It has simply become too outdated. Affilorama also lacks in some of the training. Instead, they focus on helping you get started quickly by designing a site for you and seeding it with content. Some of the optional training courses they sell are quite expensive and compares to an entire annual membership at Wealthy Affiliate, so that’s why I no longer promote them. Again, they are worth checking out, but I think Wealthy Affiliate is a much better buy.

So, first you select whether you want a free domain or a paid domain. As a second step, you select the domain name you want (be careful, this can not be changed!). Next step is to select a Title for your website (don't worry, you can change this at any moment). Final step, is to choose a theme layout for your site. This can also be changed whenever you want.
For your question on the length of time to be up and running, it is really subjective. If your speed of interpreting and executing the information is fast, you can be up and running in a matter of days, but if you take your time like I did, it will take probable 2 weeks to a month to be up and running. Making money is another story, it took me 4 months to make my first commission, some people took weeks while some people never see any results. Wealthy Affiliate Costs How Much?? [Hidden Price]
