If you actually use the product and get results with it, then sharing a case study or your personal experience can be one of the most effective ways of selling those products to your audience. As you build a more responsive list of email subscribers and buyers and your reputation, merchants may offer you “free” samples of e-books or other products.
Thanks for your reply. Some of my interests are movies, sing, dance, chat, read, travel(haven’t done much), read, watching tv, electronics, computer, games, social media, sports, food, health, money, business and more. Some interests I like more than others. I know that was too broad of an answer. If possible, I’d like to write about as much of my interests as possible. I think I asked all I could think of. Anything else I haven’t asked that you think I should know about, being a newbie and all?
In 1994, Tobin launched a beta version of PC Flowers & Gifts on the Internet in cooperation with IBM, who owned half of Prodigy.[5] By 1995 PC Flowers & Gifts had launched a commercial version of the website and had 2,600 affiliate marketing partners on the World Wide Web. Tobin applied for a patent on tracking and affiliate marketing on January 22, 1996, and was issued U.S. Patent number 6,141,666 on Oct 31, 2000. Tobin also received Japanese Patent number 4021941 on Oct 5, 2007, and U.S. Patent number 7,505,913 on Mar 17, 2009, for affiliate marketing and tracking.[6] In July 1998 PC Flowers and Gifts merged with Fingerhut and Federated Department Stores.[7]
Hi Scott!Read all the questions & your sincere replies to each of them. I like your patient & caring attitude. I am free member at WA, but haven’t gone past the self profiling & 1st lesson. Reason: being employed doesn’t give me much free time for online learning..not that, having sufficient time to learn would make me an expert, as my ‘Net’ worthiness comes to nearly nothing..yes just web browsing, emailing & stuff like that. Much as I would like to be a Premier member to become very Net savvy with its technicalities, I doubt my own abilities at my age(yes i am 50)to do online business as an affiliate. But affiliate is what i want to be in future. So, Scott advise me.

But, after all the reviews I read, it seems that the only way to make big bucks from WA is through its own affiliate programs. This doesn’t sit well for someone like me who wants to do affiliate in other niches and still earn more than my last corporate job. And… I’m afraid that I would still need to spend a lot of money from media buying (i.e. solo, ads, pps) just to earn back and more.
That url you have here isn’t working so I can’t check them out. If you are a member of WA why are you going else where to find other tools? Everything you need to run a very successful business is at WA. There is no need to waste money on other tools you don’t need. I would just stick with WA and use the tools from here. When you go elsewhere you could buy some software that could hurt your site more then help it.
Everyone is different when it comes to learning a new skill. Some people can go through the lessons rather quicker then others. You are building a business here and you don’t wanna rush through this because you could miss out on something if you go too fast. Once you start going through the lessons you will be getting your website setup and running.
I discovered your review on WA by first searching the web for reviews on Ameriplan. I am looking to obtain my Associates Degree in Applied Science with a 4.0 GPA within a month and I will need to begin to generate some income. I am hoping to not have to leave the farm to generate this income. Farm girls don’t belong in the city. What exactly does a WA team member do? What is their Website for? Providing reviews on products? Selling products? Are we paid through commissions or by a “sponsor” company? I am able to invest almost unlimited time into this right now as my school benefits carry on about another month and I have basically completed my classes (just waiting on instructor generated material).
Take as much time as you need man there’s no sense in being in a rush. I have been involved in this industry for over 2 years now and I’m running a successful website so let me know any time you have any questions. You are in no way forced to be a premium member and I don’t want you to think that. The premium option is there for people who are ready to take their business to the next level and beyond.
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.

Take advantage of marketing tools whenever possible. Many affiliate programs offer useful resources to their affiliates aimed at helping affiliates make more sales. These range from monthly newsletters highlighting upcoming sales, tips or affiliate case studies, Facebook Groups just for affiliates, private webinars explaining marketing strategies in depth and more. Ultimate Bundles does this exceptionally well.
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.
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.

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.
Thanks for stopping by. As regards your question, unfortunately this is not a get rich quick scheme. It’s probable that you don’t see any earnings on your first months. You will need to invest time building your site from scratch: this means publishing good articles, creating a nice layout, etc. If you want to accelerate the process you can outsource your content and SEO but that will cost you more money.

I’m sorry to hear that you are having trouble signing up for WA. This usually happens when a family member or someone from the same IP address tries to sign up for an account and this won’t work. I would suggest that you either try and sign up from another computer or IP address. This is all tracked by your IP address and the reason they have it setup this way is so that people can’t game the system by signing up for multiple accounts. If you continue to have problems I would send Kyle an email and let him know what issues you are having and he will get you setup. He is the co-owner of WA and his email is Kyle@wealthyaffiliate.com If you have anymore questions or need help with anything else please let me know.

Users upload content to file-hosting sites and then post descriptions of the material and their download links on directory sites. Uploaders are paid by the file-hosting sites based on the number of times their files are downloaded. The file-hosting sites sell premium download access to the files to the general public. The websites that host the directory services sell advertising and do not host the files themselves.
Solo Build It – As I stated earlier in this Wealthy Affiliate review, I initially learned how to start my own business with this service. Solo Build It is somewhat similar to Wealthy Affiliate as far as the training is concerned, but Solo Build It but I believe the training at Solo Build It is far superior. My favorite part about Solo Build It, however, is that they offer absolutely EVERYTHING you’ll ever need to grow your business online including domain registration, an intuitive site builder, research tools, hosting, and all the other tools you need are in one place with training on how to put it all together. You can learn a lot more about them by going through their video tour.
Hello Alex. I’ve gone trough your reveal and 5 day courses (though I did not receive day 3. I sent you and email but you did’t reply) and all are very fantastic. Now I am ready join Wealthy Affiliate premium under you. I tried to sign-up but the system is telling me that my country is not supported, but you said one can sign-up under Premium from any country. Please can you help me to get sign-up under premium under you? Thank you.
You also should not join Wealthy Affiliate if you don’t enjoy the community / social aspect of it. A huge part of Wealthy Affiliate is the ability to communicate with other members. It’s a “help and be helped” community. If you have no interest in setting up your profile, asking questions, supporting others, chatting in the live chat sessions, or doing any sort of participation, you will not get the full benefit of the service.
Thank you for sharing this thorough review about Wealthy Affiliate of which l am also a premium member for a while. I am totally agree with you that Wealthy Affiliate is the best Affiliate Marketing Training platform in the industry. They do provide all the necessary features for you to succeed in your online business, but you must work hard and devote your time and effort into your training and business.
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.
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.
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?
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?
Want to know a little secret about this site? When I first started this site, I only planned on monetizing by selling my OWN affiliate marketer training course. About halfway through creating my course, I realized that I would never be able to provide the type of quality product I intended. Even if I could, it would become outdated so fast that in just a couple years, I wouldn’t be able to sell it anymore.

He will help you out and get an account for you. I really hope you get this issue worked out and please keep me informed as to how this works out for you. Once you get inside WA, I will be there to guide you as to how to setup your account and show you what your next steps should be. I really am looking forward to working with you and helping you get an online business up and running.
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.
Hi Mel, You can stay as a Free member for as long as you like. There is no time limit on the Free membership, just keep in mind the whole idea of the starter membership is to get you started. If you check out the Free membership, and you think that this is something you would like to make a career out of then you should check out the premium membership. There is no obligation though whatsoever to upgrade, it’s totally up to you when you feel you are ready. If you have any more questions feel free to get in contact with me and I will help you out. Your Friend Scott

You aren’t bothering me one bit and that’s why I’m here to help you out. I could send Kyle a PM myself and inform him of this issue. He usually gets back to me pretty quickly. What would you like your username and password to be for your account? I would also need to know what email address and the first and last name you would like to use for your account?
This is the standard affiliate marketing structure. In this program, the merchant pays the affiliate a percentage of the sale price of the product after the consumer purchases the product as a result of the affiliate’s marketing strategies. In other words, the affiliate must actually get the investor to invest in the product before they are compensated.
I love Wealthy Affiliate and I love to work hard just like they have taught us too. I would rather get rich slower anyway so I can build up a successful business for the long term. You can even get training on how to be a better writer at WA. Once you start writing and do it on a regular basis it gets a lot easier. The fact that anyone can get started for free is the best part. You could make money for free but the premium membership has so many ways to get you there faster.
An affiliate marketing program is a lot of work, and in most situations there's a lot of competition so you're not going to be bringing in money immediately. Business owners and entrepreneurs suppose that all you need do is setup a site and choose an affiliate to associate with and then just let it run its course. But according to Three Ladders Marketing, only 0.6% of affiliate marketers surveyed have been in the game since 2013. That means that affiliate marketing takes time and effort to build and make money.
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.

Hey Kim, There is no such thing as a dumb question. You won’t know unless you ask and I’m glad you asked this question. When you join Wealthy Affiliate you can promote anything you want, I usually recommend people to start out with a passion or hobby. There are millions of different products you could sell on your website from places like Amazon, Click bank and many others. You can do this by signing up to their affiliate program which is free to join.
If you set your mind to it you can achieve anything if you are willing to work hard at it. 80% of people who start out in affiliate marketing end up failing because they either don’t have the right training or they get overwhelmed with everything you need to learn to succeed in this business. If you are willing to work hard at this you can make lots of money but it’s not going to come easy.
I must admit that WA is not a perfect choice for everyone. Wealthy Affiliate teaches people how to build a business and how to expand a business and take it to the next level. So in one word it teaches you Marketing. If you aren’t willing to learn and to take action than the whole concept of making money online isn’t for you. So who can really benefit from this program?
I worked hard at this and spent as much time as I possibly could on this everyday and within 4 months I had made my first sale. Wealthy Affiliate provides you with all the tools and training needed for you to be successful, the only thing missing is you. If you work hard at this and dedicate yourself to the training lessons, take action on what you learn, and ask questions when you have them then there’s no reason why you couldn’t be just as successful as I have been or more.
Hello I came across your web site while i was doing some research. I did read the whole thing. All i have to say is you really nailed it. I have been with wealthy affiliate since Sept 2017 and love it. This place is 100% honest. Not like the scamers that promise big bucks and then leave. And with the changes that Kyle and Carson have showed us that are coming it makes all the better.
You see what I’m getting at? If you break these niches down like I’ve done for you above and gradually start to build your site out you can branch out into other target markets in the tattoo niche. If you haven’t already, I would sign up for your free starter account by clicking on the “Become A Member” button above in blue. This way you’ll be able to get a feel for what you’ll be doing and get to check out everything that WA has to offer you without spending any of your hard earned money.
Great review Chris, I am a WA member and I love the training they provide.  I think that that the program offers good value for money and I love the community.  If I have a question I know there is someone that can help me in a very short period of time.  JohnHB mentioned there are no upsells within this program and It’s one of the reasons why I chose this training program.  You really covered this review well.  
I come from the world of mlm where I have been taken advantage off 🙁 How are these network marketing companies are still legal is beyond me. I was searching on how to get a refund from the company I joined and I came across your website. finally someone who doesnt promise to make me rich overnight and explains how to build an actual wealth form home. I think it’s your honesty and transparency that got me curious about online marketing and the affiliate business.

I’ve heard of AWOL but don’t have personal experience with it. Personally I doubt I would ever join a program that costs about $15,000 (if you go through all of their products). Also the fact that you need to pay a monthly $40 in order to be their affiliate doesn’t make sense to me. Since I have not purchased their training I can’t judge its quality but I’m certain all the required training to the world of online marketing can be obtained for a lot less money.
As far as writing content I would suggest that you follow the training and ask questions when you have them in the comment thread below each lesson. You would simply need to do some in-depth research on these other companies just like you did for WA. After you have compiled this information simply put it in your own words and write it in a way that it speaks to your audience.
Want to know a little secret about this site? When I first started this site, I only planned on monetizing by selling my OWN affiliate marketer training course.
