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.
I repeatedly asked, in the general forum, for help on finding out how to do what I was led there to do. I had NO interest in creating a Wordpress blog page that would promote Wealthy Affiliates. And yet, this was all they seemed to cover. I kept asking questions and received several responses to just go through the training. For what? To buy into the gimmick? Tell me EXACTLY which training of the 10 to go to so that I don't waste my time. After all, you're selling yourself to me for me to buy into your membership at some point.
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.
You don’t necessarily have to have a huge site or lots of traffic. Consider emailing an affiliate program’s contact person (look for contact info on the site or in affiliate newsletters) if you send a lot of leads their way, rank well in the search engines for a related keyword or have a high conversion rate. Make your email compelling. Read my tips here. You just have to be a good fit and provide excellent value to the merchant. Another good resource for this is here.

Individual sellers and companies offering products or services have to deal with their consumers and ensure they are satisfied with what they have purchased. Thanks to the affiliate marketing structure, you’ll never have to be concerned with customer support or customer satisfaction. The entire job of the affiliate marketer is to link the seller with the consumer. The seller deals with any consumer complaints after you receive your commission from the sale.
In November 1994, CDNow launched its BuyWeb program. CDNow had the idea that music-oriented websites could review or list albums on their pages that their visitors might be interested in purchasing. These websites could also offer a link that would take visitors directly to CDNow to purchase the albums. The idea for remote purchasing originally arose from conversations with music label Geffen Records in the fall of 1994. The management at Geffen wanted to sell its artists' CD's directly from its website but did not want to implement this capability itself. Geffen asked CDNow if it could design a program where CDNow would handle the order fulfillment. Geffen realized that CDNow could link directly from the artist on its website to Geffen's website, bypassing the CDNow home page and going directly to an artist's music page.[9]

How much you get paid would depend on how many sales you made for the month and how much commission the merchant is currently paying. When you get to the point where you start making sales, then you would be paid on a monthly basis. Also, the more traffic you have coming to your site would also play a factor in how much money you would initially make.
I will be getting in contact with you within 60 minutes of you joining to make sure you arrived OK and to answer any questions you may have. I really am looking forward to working with you Abdel and helping you build an online business you can be proud of. I hope this has answered your questions Abdel and if you have any other questions please let me know and I would love to answer them for you and help you out.
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.
I am really impressed with all the information you provided on the Wealthy Affiliate program.  I was reading through the testimonials, and it was really nothing but a lot of positive feedback!   The fact that the platform is free, unless you choose to upgrade, is fantastic, because it really gives people a chance to see if this type of business is for them.  That’s awesome!  Most affiliate marketing programs want money up front to sign up.  Great information!  Thanks!
I stumbled to this site as I was attempting to get even more information about a company that you seem to know by name all too well AmeriPlan. For me from the first contact from that company there was something in my head already telling me that this company was not for me, however it ALMOST seemed to me that they wanted you to do reseach on them since they claim to have a good review with the BBB. So with lack of my better judgement I put those feelings aside and put more of my time in doing some research on them. I went to the BBB site, and saw nothing but not so good all the way to simply terrible reviews there. At that point (which was approximately 2 weeks ago) I knew that that this company was just not a good fit for me. The emails kept coming, and to be honest I wrote them off, however did not advise them that I was not interested yet. Today I was planning to do just that simply respond to the emails and let them know, but before I completed that for some reason I decided to google their name review. I am the type of person that always beleives that everything happens for a reason, now so here I am on your page. I know this has been very long, but I wanted you to know how and where I came from. What you guys are doing here seems VERY interesting! I am not looking for some kind of get rich quick scheme that is simply not going to happen. When something sounds to good to be true it is, or illegal. I have 3 questions for you if you could answer if not well like I said earlier everything happens for a reason. Do you need to have GREAT writing skills? Social studies and Language was not my best subjects in school nor were they the worest just in the middle. I am not a gamer, I do not have hobbies such as fishing, golf, etc. How do people or did you figure out what was a good subject for a website? Lastly the handful of things that I am very interested about is completely overloaded in the “YouTube” community with so much of what I enjoy overloaded in the YouTube world do you think that a website would stand a chance against those guru’s of YouTube?

Use your personal words & experience with the product. Your own content, or photos & videos of yourself using the product are always the most effective. For example, many affiliate programs provide swipe copy to their affiliates which is pre-written emails, post material or social media posts. These can be helpful as a guide, but they often scream swipe copy, aren’t written in your voice (the one your readers know!) and if a lot of affiliates are using it, are overdone.


Spam is the biggest threat to organic search engines, whose goal is to provide quality search results for keywords or phrases entered by their users. Google's PageRank algorithm update ("BigDaddy") in February 2006—the final stage of Google's major update ("Jagger") that began in mid-summer 2005—specifically targeted spamdexing with great success. This update thus enabled Google to remove a large amount of mostly computer-generated duplicate content from its index.[28]


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.

3. Joining a community – Some programs house an exclusive private community of like-minded people. A community where you can share ideas, collaborate and empower each other on your collective online journey. This alone is worth its weight in gold. Help is always just around the corner and you will be motivated by fellow members to persevere and keep going no matter how you feel!
You should be able to Register At The Premium Level just fine. On the order screen where it asks you to pick your country, I would try and select another country from the list that is supported and see if you are able to join by doing this. If this still doesn’t help I could send Kyle(The Co-Owner of WA)a PM and inform him of this and see what he can do about it.
Affiliate marketing is also called "performance marketing", in reference to how sales employees are typically being compensated. Such employees are typically paid a commission for each sale they close, and sometimes are paid performance incentives for exceeding objectives.[20] Affiliates are not employed by the advertiser whose products or services they promote, but the compensation models applied to affiliate marketing are very similar to the ones used for people in the advertisers' internal sales department.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which took effect on May 25, 2018, is a set of regulations governing the use of personal data across the EU. This is forcing some affiliates to obtain user data through opt-in consent (updated privacy policies and cookie notices), even if they are not located in the European Union. This new regulation should also remind you to follow FTC guidelines and clearly disclose that you receive affiliate commissions from your recommendations. 
Jack I am about to join WA as a PM. If I join now I will pay $19 for the first month. And for the rest of the month $47? How is it that you also mention it is $359/year? That is $29.92 / month. Please explain to me a bit even if you feel my question a bit stupid:) Shal I pay first the $19 for the first month or pay $359 for one full year? I would prefer to pay the full amount for a year.
This was, by far, the most detailed and thorough review of Wealthy Affiliate I have ever read. Personally, I have been with Wealthy Affiliate for more than two years. I spent nearly six months loitering on the free starter membership before jumping into premium and then, of course, on to yearly premium. In hindsight, I wish I had jumped in much sooner. 
Path #2: To leverage on a business that is already setup, just like MOBE. These programs offer you a license to promote their products when you buy them, and you can potentially earn a lot of money when someone signs up through your affiliate link. To make money with them, you’ll only need to drive high quality traffic to their business, and the business will take care of everything. Problem is, as a beginner, you will not know how to attract the right traffic, and that’s where most people fail (because they don’t have the fundamental knowledge about Internet Marketing). That is why I always recommend to start from Path #1, because you will learn the entire game of Internet Marketing from ground up.

Don’t get discouraged though because I will be there to help you 100% of the way if you have any questions or need a hand getting started. Feel free to leave me a message anytime and I will get back to you A.S.A.P. I would suggest that you sign up for your free account using the link above and fill out your profile. After that get started on your first training lesson. If you have anymore questions then I will be glad to answer them for you.

You put these links at the bottom of your review and every time someone click your link and makes a purchase you get paid a commission. This is the basic rundown of what you’ll be doing April and I hope this has helped clear up any confusion you may have had about this. I would get started by creating your Free Starter Account by clicking on the link above under where it says “Get Started Building Your Online Business Today”
Jaaxy is the most powerful online keyword research tool out there, which relates to the affiliate online business model that Wealthy Affiliate teaches. Street Articles is an article directory that used to be a tool for WA members too. They could write posts there about the same topic their sites were about to create backlinks to them and boost their rankings. After Google changed its algorithm, backlinks started to be seen differently at Google’s eyes so this tool stopped being so important as before.
I would love to teach you everything I know about how to get started in affiliate marketing and how to grow your business a little more every day. I would suggest you get started by opening your FREE account by clicking on the join now button above. I will be contacting you shortly after you join to make sure you are finding your way around the community and answer any questions you may have when you are getting started.

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.
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.

Now that I think about it, I never go to a restaurant that has one hundred 5 star reviews and not a single bad review – it’s impossible that every customer is 100% satisfied. My point is that out of 100,000+ members and 10 years in business Wealthy Affiliate only got 3 negative reviews from customers (at least I think they were customers). How much does that tell you about a company?

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.
