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.
I started a blog which I plan to monetize only through affiliate marketing and my own products, no ads. I’ve been working on building an audience for my blog, for about 1 year and a half, many people think is maybe too much time, but I just want to make sure that I build enough trust with my readers before I start to try to make them buy something.
Two-tier programs exist in the minority of affiliate programs; most are simply one-tier. Referral programs beyond two-tier resemble multi-level marketing (MLM) or network marketing but are different: Multi-level marketing (MLM) or network marketing associations tend to have more complex commission requirements/qualifications than standard affiliate programs.[citation needed]

And I always suggest people to be honest. I am not sure where you got the idea that you need to scam people or spamming people in order to make money online. In fact, I think honest reviews and suggestions work much better. Many of those low quality websites that spam people or publish a bunch of dishonest reviews fail within a few months. Honesty is the only way to go in my opinion.

If anyone is claiming Wealthy Affiliate is a scam, I'm going to guess it's because of one of the following reasons: they are trying to convince you to join a different program or they didn't have success with Wealthy Affiliate. Being a successful affiliate is going to require you to roll up your sleeves and put in some hours. Nobody said it would be easy, and if they did they're lying to you.


Thanks! by time I would finish reading your article i have made my conclusion of what to say about it. I say, it is because of your honesty that is your success in this field. You tell it like it is. You know, before starting to read your article, i was in kind of hurry to move on but every next words keep pulling me like a magnet until i read all of it. Great info, Great perspective, Great lessons to apply.
From the very start until now, my experience with Wealthy Affiliate was and is just wonderful. I'm not so young anymore and I tried a lot of other affiliate platforms but they were just not good and what most bothered me about them was their upsells. Not with Wealthy Affiliate, you get what you paid for. The community is wonderful, when I'm not sure about anything I just have to ask and I will get my answer promptly. The tools that you get to use are superb and you can grow your online business without a hitch. I would recommend Wealthy Affiliate to anyone who wants to better their lives, it's worth it.
They are a very clever marketing company, and are everything they say they're not. Beware, and please read. They are smarter than most, which is why they have so many followers. They claim to have the key to training a person on how to successfully create their own lucrative work-from-home blog sites. They do claim to be a lot of work, require a lot of patience, blah blah swoon. You almost had me. 

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.
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.
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

No problem Candice, There is no rush to join and I would rather you wait until you can devote more time to doing this then have you join when you are too busy and not do anything. I’m not going anywhere and I will be here in January when you are ready. Thanks for responding back to me and I look forward to working with you here soon. Talk to you soon Candice.
It’s Amber! I don’t know if you remember me, but I’m happy I came across your article earlier this year and joined WA. I know I’m not on there at the moment, but it really brought out my interest in online business and really gave me hope for my dreams of traveling. I realized that this is actually how many people who are traveling do it. I hope to be back on WA as soon as I can!

I am very interested in WA. I have tried a couple other programs and worked very hard at one in particular with absolutely no results. I would like to retire in a few years and need something I can do at home as we travel. My question is simple. How much time per day do you feel is required to get this business off the ground as well as how much time per day do you feel is required to maintain it. I work another job and want to be sure I am not biting off more than I can chew.
5 - You last paragraph would be great if you DID actually make points in the rest of your complaint. The only REAL point you made was subliminal. You proved you were out to get something for free. You were not listening to the promo information and you would not go thru the training. So you don't have to be a member but it looks like it was not for you. 
Free Training Across The Web – Believe it or not, most of the training I’ve received over the years are sources I’ve found for free all over the web. I’ve shared a LOT of that info with you on this very website through my nearly 500 blog posts (to date). However, you should also check out sources such as YouTube. It’s true, places such as YouTube are filled with scammers and spammers, but mixed within those are some gems. For example, you can look up keynote speeches on affiliate marketing from various conferences, such as Affiliate Summit speakers. Using free content from around the web is hard to sort out and make sense of, so it’s best to use a service like Wealthy Affiliate because you are able to learn the things you need to learn, in the order you need to learn them, without all the distractions. However, as you progress, you may need to learn something specific, at which point you can go to free sources across the web to learn as you need it.
A: No, You don’t! Wealthy Affiliate does provide an amazing affiliate program but you aren’t obliged to promote it to make money. Unlike MLMs and other “business opportunities” WA will never force you to annoy your friends and family by trying to push them into your “downline”. WA is mostly about teaching you how to set-up a real online business where you could sell any service or product that you can find in stores or online.
You won’t get that at any job and I think that is just awesome. I would suggest you open up your Free account here and fill out your profile completely, then get started on the training lessons and if you get stuck or need any help along the way let me know and I will personally help you out and answer any questions you might have. I look forward to working with you Candice and if you have any more questions please let me know and I will be glad to answer them for you.

I’m starting out with my WA site and jouny right now. And I’m going to use alot of clickbank products! Was it hard and slow at first to start? You really inspired me to hit this hard! I know it wont be over night. Its it will take a lot of hard work. But I’m ok with that. Just want to get an idea of the speed of your progress was. Not at all going to base mine off yours. I know it will be differant for everyone. Again thank you for the insiration and feed back! Also i’m going to start another site but after I get this one going LoL. Really want to work for myself. Thank again 🙂 Zach
It’s a constant learning process Shahbaz. And, you can work on the courses at your own convenience. Some people take 3 months to complete and some takes a year. It’s really up to you. Well the course teaches you how to make money, and some people took a week to earn their first dollar, some people took 3 to 4 months (I did), some took 6 to 12 months and some don’t make any money.
You also will be able to use the Live Chat feature. Live chat is where members ask questions to other members. The community encourages people to pay-it-forward, so successful affiliates like myself, try to hang around to answer questions in live chat throughout the day. You'll get direct access to me and a host of other full-time affiliates for the first seven days of your free Wealthy Affiliate membership.
A: Wealthy Affiliate teaches you how to build on online business. You can certainly learn how to create and sell your own product. However, WA will also teach you how to make money by simply promoting other people’s products! You can work with such giants as Amazon, Walmart, Apple and many others and earn commissions on products these companies already sell. How cool is that?

I found Wealthy Affliate based on reviews by Affliate marketers on YouTube. ( not to mention they get paid a small fee for very one they sign up under them) Many had great things to say found very few bad things on this company. I wanted to earn extra cash at home. So I signed up. Only to realise it is A LOT of work you will need to do especially if your a beginner. I won’t recommend anyone with basic English/grammar skills even the tool they help supports isn’t Adequate enough. In order to see real results it will take months if not years before you see a real income. It’s subscription so even if your not putting in the work you will still need to pay up. Not to mention if you do decide to leave you will LOSE your domain name. It’s an requirement, they do offer a free one but recommend/ urge you to purchase one from them. I would suggest you really think about putting your money anywhere that sounds to good to be true. Nothing comes easy or free but most are Pyramid systems that can really have you believing your going to be a millionaire.
2nd tier.  If you are an affiliate for a particular program and you refer others to sign up for that affiliate program, a 2nd tier program will pay you when the affiliates you referred make sales. For example, I am an affiliate for Ultimate Bundles. If you join their affiliate program via my 2nd tier affiliate link here. I will get a small percentage of any sales you make going forward.

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.


Be honest. Talk about what you like and don’t like. Be fair and build trust. It will serve you well later. For examples, check out my review posts about Elite Blog Academy and Self Publishing 101. I get emails frequently from people who tell me they decided to purchase one of those courses through my affiliate link because it was the most balanced review they found.

They are a very clever marketing company, and are everything they say they're not. Beware, and please read. They are smarter than most, which is why they have so many followers. They claim to have the key to training a person on how to successfully create their own lucrative work-from-home blog sites. They do claim to be a lot of work, require a lot of patience, blah blah swoon. You almost had me. 


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.

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?
You should also make sure you aren't competing with your own affiliates for eyeballs. Any marketing channels you're using, such as search engines, content sites or e-mail lists, should be off limits to your affiliates. Put marketing restrictions into your affiliate agreement and notify partners immediately. It's your program--you set the rules. Or, if you prefer, you can let your affiliates run the majority of your internet marketing.
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.
Hello, I’m very interested in getting into the Dot.com world not to get Rich but hopefully to try and make a little supplemental income. I honestly don’t have a ton of money to spend and I’m pretty new to all of this. I was gonna do the Mobe thing but did my research and OH MY GOSH!!! they are asking for a lot of money for no guarantee return.. I understand nothing is guarante’d but for that system it’s not for people who live week to week like me…. I came across Wa on a review stating it was fairly inexpensive with a monthly membership charge.
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:
I’m glad you are interested in learning more about WA and I can tell you from my own personal experience that if you work hard at this you WILL start to see results. I have been doing this for a little over 2 years now and I have grown my business quite a bit in that time. This is in no way a get rich quick scheme, but a legitimate way for you to build something up that you can be proud of.
By contrast, there are over 500 training modules within the community that take you from building your very first website to learning how to manage outsourcing aspects of your business. The core training is continuously updated to reflect changes in the industry so you can make sure your website stays ranked in search engines, generating traffic and revenue.

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?

I don't have time to la-dee-dah here. Just tell me where to go! If I feel that I need to take a few steps back I will. But no. Kyle HIMSELF made a rude comment to me. This girl suggested that I watch the Alphabet Soup section of the training, that it would help. I said this was for keyword help, and I don't need that. Kyle said that if I didn't know what keywords were for, then I had no business being on the internet. Excuse me??? I was simply stating that SHE did not understand, and led me somewhere I ALREADY KNEW ABOUT. He was rude. And within seconds revoked my ability to respond with his powerful finger. 
Also like he said some of you in these reports are morons, and I really can't find another word for it. You DO NOT have to promote wealthy affiliate to make money. One more time You DO NOT have to promote wealthy affiliate to make money online. Wealthy affiliate is about teaching, and helping you to find your niche/passion and making money with it, and becoming successful in some way, shape or form. As well as the community and live support, you will not find many programs with random people who are not under you willing to help like this, this I can almost guarantee you. I have time in all of this as well, and you will find out what I mean why you keep searching for and joining the "next best thing" like you are probably doing right now.
If you are interested in my one on one help then you can sign up for your Free account here and I would be glad to help you get started online and get your website up and running. Sorry I don’t have an online forum, but if you have any questions you would like to ask me you can fill out the form on my contact us page and shoot me an email and I will answer any questions you might have. Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to answering your questions and helping you get a business up and running.
I think you did a great job with this review of Wealthy Affiliate. You pretty much covered everything but what I like the most about your review is how you included not only your own testimonial but also those of other successful Wealthy Affiliates who are making money online. This just goes to show that you can really make money online by applying the training and lessons taught by WA.
My name is Brad and I'm a full-time affiliate marketer. I started trying to do affiliate marketing back towards the end of 2013 while I was working a full-time job in corporate America and living in St. Louis, Missouri. I struggled badly at first. It seemed hopeless because I wasn't making any progress. But I stuck with it for better or worse and joined Wealthy Affiliate in 2014.
For starters they make no promises that what you will learn will be able to work on a regular site. The premise behind what they do is based on how blog-style sites work and generate traffic. Yes they do this in a completely different method. You can get traffic easier in a blog than with your web site. But since you "know what you are doing" already, you must have known that. 

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.

Neil is a New York Times bestselling author and was recognized as a top 100 entrepreneur under the age of 30 by President Obama and a top 100 entrepreneur under the age of 35 by the United Nations.
Hey Penny, I am glad I was able to steer you away from Ameriplan and towards a real online business opportunity. The WA Affiliate Bootcamp is only a 1 tier program where as MLM programs are multi tier. This is what separates WA from MLM programs out there. There are many many, different ways to make money online the bootcamp is only one of them and WA teaches you how to do it all. I would suggest starting out with the free starter membership and see what you think of it. I would then at least sample the premium membership because it is significantly discounted 59% off on your first month. This is totally up to you though Penny whenever you are ready. Once you join I will be there to guide you down the right path and show you how to make money online from the thousands of different products and services out there. I look forward to working with you and I will talk to you soon. Wealthy Affiliate The Truth.
