Hey, a coworker at my part time job mentioned the ameriplan job and I’m still on the fence but I came across this website. Is there good money within the video games or cooking areas of this as those are my two main hobbies. I do have a jewelry business that I started on facebook but it’s not really going anywhere at the moment,however that is a hobby as well, so I was wondering about the video game or cooking areas of those are profitable or not? Also wondering about the pay rate is just compiled monthly or can you choose different timeframes based on traffic? Thanks 🙂

One of the best review I have seen online in recent years! It is so simply written and so motivating. I am planning to join the WA, but as it happens, being a bit scared if it will give a return. As I am living in India, there is no free program for us so I need to pay out $49 in first month. Let see what happens. Currently thinking of a Niche, and that I will start off! Thanks for the review
I read a lot of good comments from here. I guess WA is really a good instrument to earn money online. I just have a question. I would like to have my brother join this under you but he is located in the Philippines. He has a background of internet marketing. Is this open for internationals? And what would be the way for him to be getting paid? would that be through paypal? Check or bank transfer?? uhh.. im really confused.. Your answers to these questions will be greatly appreciated. Thank you and May you have more blessings to come!
Wealthy Affiliate is an outstanding platform to learn how to build an online business. Kyle and Carson are extremely helpful and caring. They have built a comprehensive community that is dedicated to helping people build online businesses from the ground up. Wealthy Affiliate is the real deal. If you want to learn how build an online business, WA is the best place to learn. It's also extremely affordable.
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.
The free websites aren’t transferable as they belong to WA, but you can transfer the content on them to another domain using the export feature in WordPress. You don’t need a business package from anywhere to have a good looking website. The only thing you need is your domain name if you decide to purchase your own domain. I NEVER have purchased any of those business package deals and I have been at this for over 2 years now and I’m making good money at it.
Honestly, I think this website can help people learn about buildings website, but you have to spend a lot of money and time to achieve something. I been a member for a year. Didn’t make any money, but I paid 359 US$. But in the same time, I learned a lot about building websites. I am not happy about them right now because after I stopped my yearly membership at June 13, 2017. They took my money 359US$ and shut down my account. Now I couldn’t even log in my account, on my web page, showed ether I become monthly or yearly membership. I couldn’t even log in, but I remember free membership is allowed. Right? What is going on here?. The good thing is my bank promised me I will get my money refund. So, not too bad, at least I didn’t lost my money. They are not very kind to the people don’t want continue their membership. Very disappointed.
After being accepted into an affiliate program, marketers receive a unique URL that includes their affiliate ID. They share that unique URL with their subscribers, site visitors, and social networks via text links or ads. When someone clicks on that link, affiliate software records that click and any resulting product sales in the affiliate’s account. When commissions reach a pre-determined threshold, the affiliate is paid.
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.
I appreciate your input on Wealthy Affiliate. I am considering joining but I have a few questions. One, what if I already have domain names and hosting? It seems part of the monthly fee provides hosting so will my fee be reduced? Also, I’m coming from AWOL Academy. I purchased AWOL’s first program to get started and learned a lot but I have been turned off by the very strong sales pitch they use to get you to pay $10,000 to be an elite member. Can you provide a comparison of the value of the educational content between AWOL and WA?
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.
If you join Wealthy Affiliate through my affiliate link (50% off first month), I'm going to post on your wall after I get a notification that you joined. After you see my post on your wall, you can direct message me anytime to get personalized advice. I am grateful that you took the time to read my Wealthy Affiliate review and might use my link, so the least I could do is personally see to it that you succeed.
Watch them. How are other content creators in your niche utilizing advertising? What types of ads do they use? What are they promoting? What do they talk about repeatedly (if you keep seeing the same affiliate product show up again and again, there’s a good chance they’re making good money from it)? If you see a product or service they talk about that jogs your memory and you can ethically promote it too, find affiliate information by the methods described above.
You should see a screen that says something like “I’m sorry but our starter membership isn’t currently available in your country, but we would love to have you as a premium member”. Do you see anything like that on your sign up page? If you could tell me what’s preventing you from signing up I could help you solve the problem and get you signed up.
The whole membership site is just a clever cover for the infamous pyramid scheme. And since all the members posts these fake standard sounding positive reviews all over the internet, it’s pretty much impossible to find any criticism of WA. Not even the best and most respected membership sites have only positive reviews. The creators of WA are indeed cunning and very clever scammers.
Sir, I did not join under your referral link as I could not find your site before my joining. As an Indian I am very eager to get a “Free Starter Account”. Please advice me what should I do. If you advice me to re-join under your link. I can do it provided there is no problem in TOS. Sir, please help me. If I am successful to my online job I assure you to upgrade my account into Premium. Actually I am very sorry to say that I am unable to be a premium member due to financial problem. I have little SEO knowledge and little experience on making websites. So, I shall be highly helpful and pleased if you kindly help me to get a “Free Starter Account”.
For your second question, You only get paid when someone clicks on your link and buys something. For Amazon they don’t necessarily have to buy the item you are promoting for you to make a sale. If they buy anything at all when they go through your link you still get the commission for it. If you have Google ad sense on your website and someone clicks on your ads you will get paid every time someone clicks on them.
Always make affiliate links nofollow. Google’s goal is to provide its users with the best possible search results to their search queries. One of the main ways they figure out which webpages are the best is through links. The Google bots crawl the web, reading text. When they come to a link, it’s like an open door. They follow the link (walk through the door) and explore the site you linked to.

Nathaniell, Tasena here from WA!! Quick question. I dont have the $$ at the moment to renew my premium subscription can I seriously not revert back to the free account for now so I can continue my training? I am very disappointed in the lack of support when you are on the no paying side after being a premium member. It’s like you’re completely cut off. There isn’t even a way to ask a question or get help for my type of question without having to pay $49.00. Please let me know. I’d hate to lose all my work over $49.00. Thanks,


This method sort of takes you accountable. The most important thing you have to do is to take action! It is like doing your homework (I mean… when it’s fun) and your teacher giving you a good grade every time you show it to him/her. You feel you want to complete the lessons because you know you’ll get one step closer to making your dreams come true.
Now that I’ve read your article, it appears that what you’ve written makes since. I’m a truck driver, who’s just trying to make something different of his life. What makes you any different ? How can I be sure that you’ll offer the same support that SFM claims to provide, but for less money ? I’m not being skeptical, cautious at this point because I don’t have much money to waste, but I am looking to make a difference.
I am thinking about joining but I am not sure what I am getting into. I would like to have an online business just what you state but I dont have any products to sell. You help set up a website but what would it include in the website. Will I be able to join for affiliate business programs that i can sell for the other business companies? I know you have tutorials but It sure will be confusing to me and can be frustrating. Will there be a do it for you for this business that i can lead what I want to promote or sell?
Some commentators originally suggested that affiliate links work best in the context of the information contained within the website itself. For instance, if a website contains information pertaining to publishing a website, an affiliate link leading to a merchant's internet service provider (ISP) within that website's content would be appropriate. If a website contains information pertaining to sports, an affiliate link leading to a sporting goods website may work well within the context of the articles and information about sports. The goal, in this case, is to publish quality information on the website and provide context-oriented links to related merchant's websites.
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.
If you want to succeed in your own online business then you won’t want to give up in 7 days and you will want to continue building your online presence out. I would suggest that you open your free account using the signup link above. I will be sending you my personal welcome greeting within 60 minutes of you joining. I will also be there to help you out whenever you have questions or something doesn’t make any sense to you.
Scott, I’m right there with you. Wealthy Affiliate is a great company if you want to work hard. And NO you WILL NOT get rich quickly. It is a process. And you HAVE to like to write because you generate the content for the site yourself. So if you are not interested in writing, then Wealthy Affiliate is NOT for you. One of the biggest things that I like is that you don’t have to pay a cent to start making money. Yes, they do offer a premium option and it is better in the long run, but you will have no problem making money with the free account.
Hey Ryan thanks for the comment, All of this training on how to create visual graphics and star ratings is covered in the Boot camp at Wealthy Affiliate. Anyone can achieve this level of success and beyond if they just follow the training provided. I’m glad you liked it and thanks for stopping by if you ever need any help getting started let me know and I would love to help you out man.
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.
Hi Rose, I’m glad that you are interested in learning more about WA and I would love to help your brother get started making money online. This opportunity is open to everyone of every gender,and it is available to internationals and nationwide. It doesn’t matter where you live or what country you are from. There are a few ways that you can get paid, You can choose Paypal if it’s available in your country or you could choose getting a check or direct deposit into your bank account.
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?
We were all new to online business at some point in time. Personally, for me, I had absolutely no experience when I got started and I can totally relate to how you must feel about now. You can still join WA as a premium member no matter where you live Willz. If you happen to live in 1 of the countries I mentioned above, you just wouldn’t be able to take advantage of the free starter membership.
I see a few complaints here and I actually did the same sort of research before joining Wealthy Affiliate.  I even remember reading a report like this.   What I did find is that it was easy to make a decision on whether or not to try it after reading mostly positive reviews and reading a few negative reviews on here from what appears to be competitors and those that maybe had a bad experience for one reason or another.  I see some said their write access was cut off and I think that can happen if you get reported for spamming others within the community.  There is no spam allowed at WA which is nice.

If you join Wealthy Affiliate through my affiliate link (50% off first month), I'm going to post on your wall after I get a notification that you joined. After you see my post on your wall, you can direct message me anytime to get personalized advice. I am grateful that you took the time to read my Wealthy Affiliate review and might use my link, so the least I could do is personally see to it that you succeed.
I would suggest that you get started by signing up for your FREE account and then filling out your profile by uploading a pic of yourself or using one of the ones that Wealthy Affiliate provides you with.Write a little about yourself in your profile description and let the community know what you would like to achieve and list some goals for yourself.
You read that correct, this course costed me $8,388. If I would have paid it all up front, it would have only been $8,000. I didn't have eight grand sitting around at the time, so I struggled to make the 12 monthly payments of $699. I maxed out my credit card in the process and put the remaining payments on my wife's card (she's so supportive, I love her to pieces!). Now on to the contents of the course.
You will also have direct access to my expert help and support along with 1,000’s of other experienced marketers who will be there to answer any questions you have starting out. The only thing you lose access to after 7 days is the communication aspect. This means you won’t be able to ask questions, participate in the live chat or communicate with anyone. This is a premium only feature and you are given full access to this so that you can try out everything WA has to offer for 7 days without having to pay for it up front.
I would highly advise you to get the ball rolling by opening your free account by clicking on the become a member button above. Simply create a username, password, and provide a valid email address and you’re in. You’ll have the chance to check out everything that WA has to offer before making the decision to invest in their advanced training courses.
Online affiliate marketing is wide open. You can write about or promote whatever you want! However, the incredible amount of possibilities can be overwhelming, and that leaves a lot of people saying that they don't have any good ideas. There are literally hundreds of comments below saying “I don't know which topic to pick”, or “I don't have any hobbies so what should I do?”.
A quick and inexpensive method of making money without the hassle of actually selling a product, affiliate marketing has an undeniable draw for those looking to increase their income online. But how does an affiliate get paid after linking the seller to the consumer? The answer is complicated. The consumer doesn’t always need to buy the product for the affiliate to get a kickback. Depending on the program, the affiliate’s contribution to the seller’s sales will be measured differently. The affiliate may get paid in various ways:
Affiliates are most successful when the products they promote match the interests of their followers and subscribers. In addition, many successful affiliate marketers advise recommending and promoting only products that the affiliate is personally familiar with. That’s because familiarity with the product, program, or service helps build trust between the affiliate and end-user.
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.
Really don't understand this guy. He wanted help with his site so he goes into it trying to get free help by joining the free trial meant for begginers wanting to try Wealthy Affiliate. So when he gets in there it sounded like he was rude to the people trying to give him advice pertaining to the question(s) he was asking. If he knew everything he claimed he knew he should have went for the paid membership that gave him access to much more that he could have went through himself. But because he didn't get his questions anwered he thought to make Wealthy Affiliate pay by writing it on Ripoff report. The guy sounds bendictive an imature which probably shows in his website.
Hi Candice, There are many different forms of payment that WA will accept. These include PayPal, Electronic checks (It takes 3-5 business days for these to clear) Credit and Debit cards including Visa or MasterCard. You could also have it setup to be automatically withdrawn from your bank account as well. I look forward to working with you here soon and if you have any further questions let me know and I would be glad to answer them for you.
I am glad I stumbled on your site (was googling if Swagbucks was worth it and I saw your blog post about it). I thought you sounded reasonable so I checked out the rest of your blog and decided to sign up for the free 5 day course, which on Day 1 you suggest signing up for WA. It all sounds great, and I appreciate your explanation about the Amazon affiliate vs. seller.
Hi Jack! Just wondering if you can advise abit about the process about the course. While I understand there is alot of online process, technique and marketing that goes into an online business, my biggest issue is I just have no clue on what to run! I don’tk now my niche? I love investing – shares, equities, everything, but I am by far not a guru that I can setup a coaching style online business like those ‘rich dudes’ you see selling training courses online whiel worknig on their laptop in bali.
I’m so glad that you’ve done your due diligence Jerrie and looked for reviews about them before wasting your hard earned money on them. If you’re not cool with cold calling and hard selling then you’re not going to fit in at Ameriplan. Like you, I’m also a firm believer that everything does happen for a reason and I’m so glad you were able to find my website and I really do appreciate you dropping by and sharing your story with everyone here.

I have several blogs promoting all different products. The hardest thing I find about affiliate marketing is that once you’ve sold someone something you need to find a new product to sell them. I’ve found that promoting a subscription service where you sign up a customer is a great way to go. This way every time they renew or buy something you get paid. You only have to sell them this once.
Great article, Zach. The one question I have is about hyperlinking the brand name with your affiliate link. Isn’t it a little annoying for the reader if the brand name is hyperlinked throughout the article? It may even seem obvious to the reader that the blog is promoting an affiliate product. In an article with 1000+ words, a brand name may be mentioned at least 10-15 times. Do you suggest hyperlinking the brand every time?
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!.
As you may know, you can get a free or Basic account. You can also opt for Premium access which costs $49 a month. There are perks to joining with Premium access because you can get much more from the program in terms of training and opportunity. For example, with the $49 a month subscription you get 50 websites rather than just two. You also get more training and the one-on-one coaching is unlimited.
The community is positive and I see help being offered 24/7 at least she tried to help you. With that statment the readers will know we try to help with every question asked. The program is built around helping real people build a real business I am a member and I could say Im not dumb for becomming one. I Have been around  the online marketing business for eight years.
These videos would be free for all of my Wealthy Affiliate referrals since I get commission from those. If you're not a wealthyaffiliate members, I would charge a small monthly fee just to weed out the haters who might try to sabotage the site, and to compensate me for the time and effort of recording the videos and explaining each step along the way.
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]
