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.

A. There could be several reason for this error. You might have already created an account in the past and you forgot about it. Someone might have created an account using your email address. Someone might have created a account using your IP (internet connection in your house) and WA thinks it might be a duplicate account. Since I do not own Wealthy Affiliate I cannot help you with this. You can contact WA support directly and see how they can help you out.
Upselling is a sales technique where the salesperson encourages a more expensive purchase by a customer by persuading them to get an upgraded version of an item or to purchase add-ons. Remember our food processor example? That food processor could probably be best used with a book of recipes, which also can be purchased at the same company’s website.
It’s free to join these programs and once you join, you will be given your very own affiliate id number. You need to put these affiliate links on your site preferably at the bottom. This way people will have the chance to read your content. If they are interested in learning more, about the product they can click on your affiliate link to purchase the product.

Some people are able to start making money in a few months while others it takes longer then that. I would say if you gave yourself a year and you worked on this at least an hour a day like you said that you could, then you could be making a full time living in that time. If you are willing to put the work in and take action on what you have learned then you could reach your goal before a year. I know that you can do this and you will have me there to help you out as well if you ever get stuck or don’t understand something. I do this full time and make a living off it so I am here pretty much all the time.
Fantastic. I am floundering in information overload from WA. I am a premium member and have been through the gauntlet of being discouraged and quit. I went to another online marketing company and found that what I had was a hundred times better with WA. I went back and discovered things that I hadn’t found the first time I was there. Yes, I am not in the money game yet but with WA’s humbleness and wonderful help I intend to keep on trucking. Your site is the best motivation that can be had to people who are struggling with the learning process.
Actually I’m writing this comment to ask you how do I join (to premium) wealthy affiliate through your affiliate link? I tried to find it from your article but can’t find it. Please let me know soonest because I’m currently on fire to start my empire with Wealthy Affiliate and I want my referral to be you as a credit of your beautiful writing on Wealthy Affiliate. 🙂

There’s No catches or ANY risk involved whatsoever. You can get started for Free like I said above, and you’ll get the chance to see what you will be doing and if this is something you would be interested in making a career out of. You’ll also be able to check out everything they have to offer and then make the decision as to whether you would like to invest in their advanced premium training. I will also be there to help you every step of the way and answer any questions you may have for me. If there is something you don’t understand I will be there to explain it to you.
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.
Promote products at various price points. Even the little products (like Amazon ebooks) add up. If there is a truly useful product on the pricier side, it can still be worth the promotion even if only a few people buy it. If you’ve used a product of exceptional quality and it’s a good investment, or if it’s a product that’s unique, specialized or one-of-a-kind, go for it.
Also, having been priviledged to serve on the Board Of Directors of the Network Marketing industry’s professional association for 4 years, representing Canada (ANMP.com – Association of Network Marketing Professionals), a global, non-profit organization, which serves to educate, protect and support Network Marketers) – I guess I do feel somewhat “protective” of this industry.
But Keale’s AWOL won’t return my email, and I’m trying to get my “no questions asked refund” it has only been 6 days. Should I report him to my bank or say a few things to get him moving faster? Jack please, I’m begging you to help me. I really am interested in doing the affiliate and I’m not in a hurry, I have studied this SEO and do have a BA in business. Thank you in advance.
 First and foremost, I found this while doing research on these on line work from home business. I am just kind of put off with your review because honestly they way you described your actions and attitude to the company in general, I would have reacted in much the same way but I would not have been as nice about it. Let's face it....you were rude. You know what they say, "you get what you give. I don't think anyone out there who has out the time and effort into creating such a training program would be okay with any one skipping ahead to what they think they need. You came off like a know it all and nobody likes that. So in my opinion, you tried something, it didn't work so, you didn't get your way and so basically this is your rendition of throwing a tantrum...grow up!!!!
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. 
If you could take a few minutes and think of any hobbies you have or something you are passionate about, then I can help you find a niche (Topic of interest) and get you started.I hope this has helped you out Greg and I would suggest that you get started by signing up for your Free starter account by clicking on the blue “Become A Member” button above. If you have any other questions or need any additional help before joining please let me know man.
The way the training is structured is great for learning. Many courses just throw videos at you without any structure. Seriously. I've taken a course where all the members complained about how disorganized it was. The founders said it was purposefully disorganized to teach you how to dig and search for things like an entrepreneur. I couldn't make up something so crazy!

If you want to make money and learn how to build a thriving online business I would highly recommend that you invest in yourself by going premium. It’s actually the best decision I’ve ever made and I know you won’t regret it. The best thing about affiliate marketing is that you don’t need to keep inventory and there’s no need to have a warehouse full of merchandise.
WA isn’t a domain registrar so you would need to purchase your domains from either Go Daddy or Namecheap. If you do a search on Google for coupon codes you can usually acquire your own domain for only $1 for your first year and this will end up costing you $10-12 a year after that. You can add plugins to your site so that you can have a shopping cart on your site and be able to accept PayPal/credit cards eCommerce as well.
I'm really grateful for the Wealthy Affiliate platform. It has allowed me to flourish as an affiliate by providing me with all the tools I needed to review products and make profitable affiliate sites. It also has given me access to real affiliates that I can ask questions if I get stuck. I am paying it forward in the same way it was paid forward to me.
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.
I heard so many good things with Wealthy Affiliate and am a current member, although I’ve been going through some of the videos and asking help from mentors, it’s better to have another helping hand and I’m glad I come across to you. Can you tell me more about how I can be more successful with WA? Oh, btw, I already got so far as making my own website although I just went along with the WA niche but I still need more help with how to make my contents more understandable and friendly browsing. Thank you for your help.
The phrase, "Affiliates are an extended sales force for your business", which is often used to explain affiliate marketing, is not completely accurate. The primary difference between the two is that affiliate marketers provide little if any influence on a possible prospect in the conversion process once that prospect is directed to the advertiser's website. The sales team of the advertiser, however, does have the control and influence up to the point where the prospect either a) signs the contract, or b) completes the purchase.
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.
I am a very sceptical person and after getting my fingers burnt on other opportunities I was of course sceptical at first about Wealthy Affiliate however as a unique offer that I have not experienced before, a new sign up member has full access to all member areas for a 30 day trial so you are actually able to get stuck in to the 10 lesson per levels of step by step tuition for free so if it Is not for you after the trial you don’t have to pay anything just simply walk away.

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.

Also, thank you for recommending Noisli. I get very distracted when working, so this white noise would be perfect. Music (classical) and white noise background sounds do help with concentration. It’s like success is handed right to me, I just need to do the work!!! The tools are all there, help and advice are all there, you see real people making real results. Well I can’t confirm that anybody is real online, but you know what I mean. I liked your sense of humor in this post as well. This review also included examples and talked more about how things work, such as the pages and keywords and how it takes time for your keywords to go up in google. It talks about the beginning where you weren’t making any money, but one day it started, and from then on it was making money itself!!!! Thank you for this review as it was extremely helpful and informative.
While you remain a starter there’s no limit to it. Just after 7 days you lose communication abilities, but you are still free to go through the training and build out your websites as much as you want. You can get your first month at an unbelievable discount of 59% off (Comes out to only $19) to give premium a test drive for 30 days to see if this is something you want to invest in before paying full price.

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.


Although it differs from spyware, adware often uses the same methods and technologies. Merchants initially were uninformed about adware, what impact it had, and how it could damage their brands. Affiliate marketers became aware of the issue much more quickly, especially because they noticed that adware often overwrites tracking cookies, thus resulting in a decline of commissions. Affiliates not employing adware felt that it was stealing commission from them. Adware often has no valuable purpose and rarely provides any useful content to the user, who is typically unaware that such software is installed on his/her computer.
What kind of commission do they offer? One-time commissions or recurring commissions? For example, many programs pay you one time for sending a customer. On the other hand, some programs like membership sites or SaaS (software as a service) programs will pay you a commission as long as the person you referred is a paying customer. Recurring commissions are great when you can find them!
So to show you exactly how awesome the training is, and exactly how fast support is, and exactly how friendly everyone is, you can create a free Starter Membership. With this free membership, you'll be able to build your first website and ask unlimited questions. Kyle (the owner) will show you step by step how to pick a topic for your website, how to build your website, and how to create your first articles.
I first joined Wealthy Affiliate in June of 2016 mostly to just see what it was all about. I signed up for a free account at Wealthy Affiliate but upgraded to their paid Premium membership the very next day. Now that I’ve been with Wealthy Affiliate for about 7 months, I decided it’s finally time to write a Wealthy Affiliate review with my findings on whether this is a good program to sign up with or not.
