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.
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.
 First and foremost, I found this while doing research on these on line work from home business. I am just kind of put off with your review because honestly they way you described your actions and attitude to the company in general, I would have reacted in much the same way but I would not have been as nice about it. Let's face it....you were rude. You know what they say, "you get what you give. I don't think anyone out there who has out the time and effort into creating such a training program would be okay with any one skipping ahead to what they think they need. You came off like a know it all and nobody likes that. So in my opinion, you tried something, it didn't work so, you didn't get your way and so basically this is your rendition of throwing a tantrum...grow up!!!!

I have one more question. I wanna know how long does it takes to go through all those lessons once I sign up and also can I create our website right away after going through those lessons. I know it takes long to understand everything and be an expert like you. Since last two days I am going through all this website and getting more info about Affiliate Marketing. I have too many question regarding sales and how this exactly works but I will ask you once I sign up and I hope that many of my questions will be answered once I go through those lessons.
You should definitely do this if you want to try it out at a discount, but this is totally up to you man. I can totally relate to you having trouble affording an extra $50 a month because I used to live that way for practically my whole life. All I can say is if you go through the training and follow it exactly how it’s laid out and take action you will start to see results.
The concept of affiliate marketing on the Internet was conceived of, put into practice and patented by William J. Tobin, the founder of PC Flowers & Gifts. Launched on the Prodigy Network in 1989, PC Flowers & Gifts remained on the service until 1996. By 1993, PC Flowers & Gifts generated sales in excess of $6 million per year on the Prodigy service. In 1998, PC Flowers and Gifts developed the business model of paying a commission on sales to the Prodigy Network.[3][4]

Hey Scott! Thanks for posting such great reviews and replying to everyone’s comments. I’m interested in joining, but I’m a little skeptical about devoting months if my time before earning anything. I understand it takes time to build any career. I mean, I’m going into my 3rd year of schooling for a career that isn’t mine yet! Lol. So my questions…What is the method for payment? Do you only get paid for each time someone clicks on a link to what or promoting or do you get paid for each click and each purchase of that item? Also, how about if I chose a product such as Avon or PartyLite? You know, products that are sold by individuals rather than through a website? I mean, they still have websites, I’m just not sure how that would work with WA. Thanks in advance for any answers you can provide!
I realize my bias is already showing through, so I’ll get to what I DON’T like about Wealthy Affiliate below. But, as I’ve already stated, overall I don’t know of any other place that is better for new affiliate marketers to get started than Wealthy Affiliate. If you take a look around my site, you’ll notice I’ve spent a TON of time on it. I’ve spent years of my life building this site, and there are currently almost 500 posts here, all for free, for everyone. It is in my best interest to promote only the best training course and that training course is Wealthy Affiliate.
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!

I can testify to the greatness of WA. It really is massive in terms of resources and training. I feel like it’s an all in one training center where you can learn EVERYTHING about affiliate marketing. I would encourage anyone who is looking for a way to make money online to give Wealthy Affiliate a try. You won’t be disappointed. Thanks so much for this review Scott!
In February 2000, Amazon announced that it had been granted a patent[13] on components of an affiliate program. The patent application was submitted in June 1997, which predates most affiliate programs, but not PC Flowers & Gifts.com (October 1994), AutoWeb.com (October 1995), Kbkids.com/BrainPlay.com (January 1996), EPage (April 1996), and several others.[8]
Writing product reviews are an excellent way to enhance your credibility as an affiliate marketer. This is especially easy with information products like e-books which are relatively inexpensive. After establishing some steady income it may even be worth buying higher-end products, provided you get in touch with the product creator to work out a strategic marketing plan that takes you to the next level.

Just take amazon as an example. In order to earn money from Amazon, you have to sign up as a partner with them. Once you have signed up, you will be given a unique affiliate link. You can promote this link by placing it in your own website, etc. When people clicks on that link, and purchase something, you make a commission from the successful sale. You do not need to handle the transaction nor are you selling stuff. You are connecting potential buyers to retailers.
hmm. . . i am kind of new to online business and i got redirected to this post from your WARDCOPYCAT post. i read through and was developing interest until i got to the place where you listed countries not accepted and my country happened to be number on the list. That was heart breaking though. . . But still great job here keep it up. i will just keep searching for the right online job to do that accept my country.
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.
A sound product strategy is a must for new affiliate marketers. Ideally, you should choose a niche that you can make money online with and has a lot of product vendors. This will give you a wide selection of products to offer your online community. However, limit yourself to two or three products at a time, so that you become the expert others turn to and trust when reaching for their wallet.
But here’s the kicker… If you sign up using my affiliate link for Wealthy Affiliate, I will be notified and I will send you a welcome message. From that point on, you can contact me absolutely any time and I will help coach you through the process. If you ever feel overwhelmed or have questions you can’t find the answers to, I’m just a quick message away. I’m not only happy to return the favor for you clicking on my affiliate link, but this business is my passion, and I absolutely love watching people’s businesses grow. So, if you are looking for one more reason to join Wealthy Affiliate, use any of my Wealthy Affiliate links before you sign up and you’ll get free coaching from me personally.
As you can tell from her homepage, all of Andréa’s posts focus on all-natural, high-protein, delicious recipes. She has a niche, and she sticks to it! Whenever she calls out an ingredient that’s associated with an affiliate program she’s involved in (such as a protein powder), she hyperlinks that word with an affiliate link back to product’s website. 

Despite its older origins, email lists are still a viable source of affiliate marketing income. Some affiliates have email lists they can use to promote the seller’s products. Others may leverage email newsletters that include hyperlinks to products, earning a commission after the consumer purchases the product. Another method is for the affiliate to cultivate email lists over time. They use their various campaigns to collect emails en masse, then send out emails regarding the products they are promoting.

Now, to put things into perspective, anyone looking for a business online must first check the existing reviews of the members outside the WA community. Never believe any site that promises to earn a thousand dollar overnight. Because there is no get-quick-rich program on the internet. Anybody who tells you so is a liar. You have justified on that aspect too as you said that WA did not promise a quick rich.
Hi there Rajkamal, I’m very sorry to hear that you got confused last time when you joined WA and quit. It can be confusing when you are first starting out and that is why I am here to help you through the process and get you rolling here. I can assure you that if you sign up under me I will make sure that you understand everything and help you out as much as I possibly can. We have certification courses that are laid out so that you can follow them step by step. Each one has 10 lessons and once you are done you can check them off and move on to the next step.
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.

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.


A. Different companies and networks online offer different ways of payment. For example if you are an affiliate of Amazon, they will pay you out through a check, gift card or a direct bank deposit. Some companies prefer to pay you by PayPal while other might go a different route. If you want to know how a company pays out the commission you can simply do a Google search on their affiliate program.
I am absolutely floored by your review! It is the most in-depth, thorough, creative, and satisfying review I have ever, EVER read! All my questions are answered. I joined in August and have had life interfer with my plans of moving forward with WA. I guess I was losing motivation and by doing so, I allowed simple things to manipulate my progress. But, I have to tell you, after  reading your review, it has absolutely kicked my arse into gear, and I, or I should say you, got my motor running! I dare say, every newbie MUST read this post! It is not only motivational and inspirational, it is spectacular!! I must ask though…what was your career before WA? Some great orator or speech writer??? God bless you and your talent! 
Hi,Will..your site is helpful and very informative…the way you lay out all process is awesome,so i have some questions to ask you brother…i live in africa ,french country so my english is not good ,i continue to improve it everyday since i discover the power of internet marketing specially affiliate marketing through Wealthy affiliate University…can i learn to write reviews like you and other successful people even if my english is not too good?or first can i write posts in my native language ,that’s my main problem,waiting for your fast reply …thanks in advance will!!
If you’re a blogger, start by going through your analytics and finding your most popular posts. In Google Analytics (GA) you can find these pages by going to your GA Dashboard > Behavior > Site Content > All Pages. Examine the ones at the top of the list that bring in the most traffic. Are there any affiliate products or services you can naturally include in them?
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.
Do you have zero interest in an expensive mountain bike the company you are an affiliate of sells? Well, you probably don’t want to feature it on your blog, as it is extremely difficult to persuade readers (or anyone for that matter) that they should buy something you wouldn’t be caught spending a single penny on. When you are passionate about a product or–at the very least–interested in learning more about it, this will come through to your readers, engage them and better coax them to buy
Your success depends on multiple variables James, like how much knowledge or have (or don’t have currently), how much work you put into developing your business, how consistent you are, how long it takes for you to learn the process and how you put the process to work. Some folks can start earning money in as little as a few weeks, some months and others several months. It really just depends on the individual and how motivated and committed they are.

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.
I would also like to see a forum built into the platform. Wealthy Affiliate has a unique way of building a community and I understand why they shy away from a standard forum type of format. Instead, they want to promote live chat sessions, blog posts, private messaging, and public questions where people can comment below. This type of setup is pretty cool at times, but I also do enjoy forums where I can just browse by topic.
You would bypass all of that and you would be able to focus on building review pages and how to increase your conversion rate. I would say that you should count on spending a good 90 days building your site before you will see any real results. This is going to involve lots of hard work and by no means will this be an easy task. If you go through the training lessons this will be broken down into easy to understand segments.
What are some of your interests Scott and what are you passionate about? This is what your website is going to be based on and this needs to be narrowed down to a specific group of people. There are over 2 billion people online every day with this number constantly on the rise. The only thing you need to do is connect with these people and provide them with the information they’re looking for.
