Merchants receiving a large percentage of their revenue from the affiliate channel can become reliant on their affiliate partners. This can lead to affiliate marketers leveraging their important status to receive higher commissions and better deals with their advertisers. Whether it’s CPA, CPL, or CPC commission structures, there are a lot of high paying affiliate programs and affiliate marketers are in the driver’s seat.
This includes 24/7 access to the live chat where you can get your questions answered instantly and get help from thousands of experienced internet marketers. You also get your own blog and access to 3 classrooms. After 7 days you will lose access to the help and support functions if you don’t upgrade but everything else will still be fully functional and there is no limit to this.
I have revealed a profitable niche website ones that was promoting motorcycle accessories and parts. Guess what happened? 15 very similar websites popped up within a few months. Unfortunately many people would rather copy your niche, your content ideas, your keywords rather than do the proper research and find their own. Folks want shortcuts to success, people expect to make a bunch of money within a day-week-month which simply isn’t going to happen. Did these websites “stole my business”? No but they definitely put a dent in it. This is why I am now very protective of my niche websites. I just launched yet another niche websites (music industry) and believe me I won’t be bragging about it openly as I spent hundreds of hours coming up with article ideas and finding amazing keywords for it. However, if you look hard enough you’ll find several members who reveal their niches and their income as well.

My name is Emmeline. I am 28 years old. I live in California working as a receptionist and am living with my family of 5 in a 2 bedroom 1 bathroom house because I cannot support myself on my income, despite my job being full time. I have an AA degree and have been acting/singing in theatre since I was a kid. I currently do community theatre and stand up comedy alongside my job. But I do not often make money from it, I do it because I love it.


I'm thinking about building a new site and partnering with someone. We would split the commission 50/50 and we would have to talk and see how to split up the work based on our skill sets. I would own the domain and you would open the affiliate accounts and receive the payment. After the payment is issued, you send me my half. Or we could have a joint PayPal account and divvy up the payments from there (I do this now with a friend and it works well). And of course, I would give preference to premium Wealthy Affiliate members when picking a partner because I know they know their stuff.
If you don’t like to write, do not sign up for Wealthy Affiliate. The business model that Wealthy Affiliate teaches revolves around producing lots of great content to attract website visitors from search engines. This means, as you build your business, you’ll be writing just about every day, just like I do on this very blog you’re reading. I’ve already written almost 4,000 words in this one post alone, and it’s not even close to being finished yet. Affiliate marketing takes work, and if you are unable or unwilling to write a TON of content, don’t even consider getting into this. Being a writer will end up being your main job.
When I was a beginner and decided to join Wealthy Affiliate as a free member, one thing was evident right away. Wealthy Affiliate was designed with the beginner in mind. The one thing that I haven't talked about yet is time. If you can carve out 1-2 hours a night, you'll be on track to making a living. If you can't make time for the course, you shouldn't join the premium membership.
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.
Yes, you can visit other websites that are in your niche to get some ideas and learn more about it. I actually still do that to this day and once I get my ideas together, I write my review on all the information I’ve researched and put it in my own words. This is perfectly fine and a great practice for you to get into when structuring articles for your website. I hope this helps you out and let me know if you have any other questions.
Thank you for the reply. I’d like as many members on WA to review as many of my articles as possible, specially when starting out. As technology and contents are changing constantly faster than ever, how difficult would you say is the update of new and fresh contents on the sites are? Can I get 1 on 1 help from as many members in WA as I could reach as premium member? Out of curiosity, how many hours a week would you recommend doing WA to be some income(Say maybe $1000/per month?), within 3 to 6 months? Also, what niches do you write about, if you don’t mind me asking?
Premium membership costs you $19 the first month (if you take advantage of the 59% discount during the first 7 days after joining) and $47 the following months. You may cancel at any time, if you wish to do so. If you decide to pay on a yearly basis, the Premium membership will cost you $359. That would save you $205 than if you paid $47 per month during a year ($47 x 12 months = $564; $564 – $359 = $209 in savings, seems like a good deal!).
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.
Webinars happen every Friday. Topics are announced during the week. Sign up now and you can attend your first webinar before the end of the week! Ask questions LIVE in chat if you have any trouble with the material. There are NO SALES PITCHES in the webinars! Why pay $100 per webinar anywhere else when you can get them for FREE with your Wealthy Affiliate membership?
I read your review and I want to join the Program .But I’m from Bangladesh and I clicked on the special link you gave in the article which took me to WA page where it said $19 for the first month ,but when I went to pay ,it’s saying Free starter accounts are not available but showing $49 for premium membership. wasn’t I supposed to pay $19 for my first month for clicking through your link?
i have looked at and tried similar systems and programs in the past, all without success. The web is full of false promises and scams, that it is difficult to trust any. Most follow the same design and claim ‘this and that’ but end up with tools like article spinners that dont work and clickbank banners that have no effect. What makes this system any different?
It’s great that you are thinking long term and that you understand that building an online business will take time. If you are willing to stick with this for the next 2 or 3 years you will definitely make some awesome progress within that time. If you decide to Join As A Premium Member you will have the ability to host up to 50 domains. This would be 25 free domains and 25 domains that you own so yes you would need to purchase these domains from an outside domain registrar like Go Daddy or Namecheap.
The entire reason I created this site is because as an affiliate marketer, I started getting upset with the lack of ethics and misinformation being spread from MANY affiliate marketers, especially as it pertains to the “make money online” niche. So many online marketers out there promise you quick easy money if you just sign up and pay for this or that. Quite frankly, I’m sick of it. Growing an affiliate marketing business is just like starting any other business – it takes time, effort, and a lot of trial and error. I won’t get into it here, but if you’d like you can read my honest article about how long it takes to earn a full-time living with affiliate marketing.
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.
1. Finding a mentor – When you first get started with affiliate marketing, you need guidance. You will have a million questions to ask and having a mentor really does make a significant difference in terms of starting you off in the best possible way and giving you the correct advice you need to start taking action and build your internet business.

Highly competitive: If you can’t generate traffic, you don’t make any sales. This is the biggest challenge. When everyone can sign up for these affiliate offers for free (very low barrier for entry), now you have a situation where there is a boatload of competition for most affiliate opportunity out there. Unless you use paid traffic, most people get traffic from building a website and ranking it in Google, which is what Wealthy Affiliate teaches, but the problem is there’s only 10 spots on the first page of Google. & you have to compete for those spots with thousands of affiliates around the world.
And what about joining another company's affiliate program? It's all about extra revenue. Think about your customers' needs: What other products or services would interest your site visitors? Join those affiliate programs. Affiliate programs can increase your sales with no upfront cost to you. It just takes a little time to plan your strategy and select the partners that will have the greatest impact on your business.
Sure, I could let the countdown timer reach zero before I made my decision and, when I felt comfortable about it, I would later pay the full price of $47. Even this amount is not that high. Think about how much you spend every day on your newspapers and magazines — when there are free online news sites — and how much that totals by the end of each month
Thanks for all the information I am slowly working my way through your list of do’s and donts! ! I’ve been approached by a website that wants to develop editorial content for my blog featuring home improvement tips from their”national client” and pay me $40 a year for reviewing and publishing their content. Boy, I am just not sure how this all works? Any words for when we are approached by others to write for our blogs?
24/7 Live Chat- Got a burning question that you need an instant answer to? No matter what time of the day or night it is there is always someone in live chat who will be there to answer your questions (Even at 4 in the morning) As a matter of fact, the owners Kyle and Carson are in chat several times daily to answer any questions or issues you may have.
I’m glad that you have found my WA review and I’m glad that you like it. If you are already a member of WA then I don’t think you can sign up for another account. I will still be there to help you out as much as I can and answer any questions you may have about getting started. You could try and sign up under me and see if it lets you create a new account or not. It doesn’t hurt to give it a try. What’s your screen name on WA so that I can add you to my following?

The best way to engage and tie-up with affiliates is to build up a reputation by providing good content. Connect with bloggers in the same niche as yours, cross-promote your products, and build a relationship with them. You can find successful affiliates through forums and online platforms. Some of the most popular affiliate networks are Clickbank, Commission Junction, Amazon Affiliate Programme, and Linkshare, to name a few.

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.
Once you join I will be getting in touch with you within your first hour to help you get your account setup properly as well as answer any questions you may have on your first day. I know how my first day was and I needed all the help I could get. I want your experience at WA to be the best ever and so I will be there to guide you every step of the way.
These are some pretty broad interests and we can work on narrowing them down now that you have joined WA. It also looks like we have quite a few things in common as I have many of the same interests as you. I’m also a huge gamer myself and I’m passionate about electronics. One of my very first niches was electronics and this ended up being a busted niche and I failed miserably at it when I first started.
I read your review and I want to join the Program .But I’m from Bangladesh and I clicked on the special link you gave in the article which took me to WA page where it said $19 for the first month ,but when I went to pay ,it’s saying Free starter accounts are not available but showing $49 for premium membership. wasn’t I supposed to pay $19 for my first month for clicking through your link?

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.
Here is my question: “What do you know about ‘Jim Cockrum’s Coaching Course?’ I was debating, if it does not cost me “an arm and a leg” to join the course but then I start reading a few negative reports/reviews on “Ripoff Report” (old ones ) which made me slightly uneasy! Also, I noticed that apparently Jim and/or the “Coaching Office” is located in Utah! This makes me kind of uneasy also, because many Internet operators, companies , etc., are located in Utah! I happened to deal with a few of them and they all left me with a bad taste in my mouth and/or ‘burned’, so to speak!.
What this does mean, though, is that because you will learn whitehat techniques you have to do the work to see the results. This makes it harder to rank any of your websites on Google, but this is a good thing. This just points more to the fact that Wealthy Affiliate is not a scam. What they teach you are real SEO techniques that even professionals use. 
I’m glad that you were able to find my WA review and I would be more than happy to answer these questions for you. Affiliate marketing is one of the most lucrative business models that you’ll find on the internet and one of the best ways to start up a business online. I’m sorry to hear that you were taken advantage of from a late night television program years ago.
If you live in SE Asia there shouldn’t be no problem signing up for the starter membership at WA. This is a worldwide opportunity and it’s available to everyone. I would suggest going through the starter courses first, so that you can get a feel of what you will be doing at WA. After you have completed the starter training, and if you would like to continue your training, you can get your first month at an incredible savings of only $19 for your first month.
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?
For example, when I first started back in 2009, I learned from a service called Solo Build It. I knew absolutely nothing about building an online business, let alone what “affiliate marketing” even meant. However, they changed my life and taught me how to build money-making websites online, which is what I’ve been doing with my life ever since. This is another great service to consider and you can read my review of Solo Build It here.
