I understand that WA has a built in solution to this — promote WA. That in itself is a business one can passionately dedicate himself to. This seems to be an excellent idea initially. But then we have to contend with the fact that there may be tens of thousands of WA affiliates who are in the same boat and who have nothing more to promote than WA itself. There is already a glut in this niche. That’s the reason why every time we do a search for product reviews, we almost ALWAYS end up with a product review done by a WA affiliate who is reviewing the product as a way to lead the visitor to joining WA as the better alternative to the business or product the visitor is researching on.
Since I’ve been in the industry for 9 years I have joined countless training websites and not a single one came close to Wealthy Affiliate. I am not going to list everything within WA but just their Live Video classes are extremely amazing. There are now over 200 videos that train you on several subject. You can learn how to start and grow your email list in any niche, how to do social media marketing, how to run successful Facebook ads, how to do local SEO and find clients in your city, how to scale your niche websites and a lot more. Jay often does Niche Hot Seat series where people actually share their niche website and get a real live audit and suggestions on how to grow it, scale it and earn more money from it. Unfortunately it seems like you haven’t attended any of those closes and didn’t watch the previous classes which are all recorded. All of these classes concentrate on building a successful business outside of promoting WA.
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.
Thanks Jack, I’m in South Africa so with the exchange rate it’s really hard to buy into these companies like Digital Altitude and The 4 percent, I even tried to get a loan from the bank but my credit is not good so I was declined, I need to start earning extra money so I can sort that all out, if I had lots of money I wouldn’t need to… I appreciate your Review and will definitely have a look at WA

Affiliate marketing currently lacks industry standards for training and certification. There are some training courses and seminars that result in certifications; however, the acceptance of such certifications is mostly due to the reputation of the individual or company issuing the certification. Affiliate marketing is not commonly taught in universities, and only a few college instructors work with Internet marketers to introduce the subject to students majoring in marketing.
Honestly, I wouldn’t try marketing WA itself until you’ve had success elsewhere. How can you give solid advice on why people should join WA if you haven’t had success with it yet? Also, some of the best affiliates in the world have gone through WA training, so you’re competing with them as well. You can definitely compete with anyone, so don’t let that scare you away. But get your legs with a micro-niche site first. Hopefully you can find a niche that’s not too competitive.
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.
A: Unfortunately the whole industry of internet marketing has earned quite a negative reputation. This happened mostly because of dishonest folks who would scam people by promising to reveal a secret shortcut to millions for a simple fee of $197 (or $39, or $57, or $1,997). As I often mention throughout my blog and my podcast, there isn’t an easy way to riches. What makes Wealthy Affiliate very attractive is their starter membership. With this FREE membership you only get access to a small part of WA training but it’s more than enough to show you the tremendous value you will get inside, without risking a single penny of your hard-earned money. The simple fact of letting people in for free eliminates any possibility of Wealthy Affiliate being a scam.
If you are someone who likes talking about products that you normally use, affiliate marketing is a fantastic way for you to earn some side income. How does it work? Let’s say you are passionate about technology and write a lot about wearable devices. You can become an affiliate with companies that sell such devices. Write about the features of the product in detail, focused towards people who might not be able to necessarily understand the technical nuances of the product, and for each sale that you make when you refer people to the affiliate’s website, you will get a commission. The same is replicated across all industries.
A: Yes, Wealthy Affiliate works in Canada. In fact, it works in every country. WA teaches you how to build an online business. As long as you have access to internet you can start building your own business. I am based in Montreal, Canada but I know many members who live (and successfully earn an income) in Australia, UK, Germany, Poland, India, Ukraine, Russia, France, Chile and many many other countries.
I have been reading the comments/reviews regarding this company and I am interested in joining,but I have a couple of questions before doing so. My main interest is cooking so I would like to put my own recipes on site would this sort of thing be of interest. Can you also tell me once the 7 day free membership has expired how much is it going to cost on an ongoing basis. What are the layout costs of starting this up if there are any. I am retired and I am looking for an interest but have no experience in this area as I worked for the NHS
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.
I know the difference between other programs I joined before and WA. That’s why to me, WA is the best program I have ever known existing online. Let me assure anyone with doubts to try WA and you will see it’s the best program to start an online business with. Try it and you will find it the best program online. That’s my own opinion based on my experience on the many programs I joined before. Thanks so much Scott
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.
Don’t exhaust all the information about the product with your link. Offer enough information to your readers so they know what the link is, but I don’t recommend giving too much detail on your own site for a two reasons. First, product information, like price, often changes. If you mention the price on your site and someone clicks over and finds a different price, it’s confusing. Second, many times, the product details and features are better explained by the makers of the product. It’s best to stick to your own experience on your site.
Thank you for the kind words and I would love to show you how to make money online just as I do. If you haven’t already I would get started by creating your FREE account by clicking the sign up button above. Get started by filling out your profile by uploading a picture of yourself or use one of the images WA provides you with. Then you will want to fill out your profile description by telling the community a little about yourself and what goals you would like to work towards.
There are two ways to approach affiliate marketing: You can offer an affiliate program to others or you can sign up to be another business's affiliate. As the business driving an affiliate program, you'll pay your affiliates a commission fee for every lead or sale they drive to your website. Your main goal should be to find affiliates who'll reach untapped markets. For example, a company with an e-zine may make a good affiliate because its subscribers are hungry for resources. So introducing your offer through a "trusted" company can grab the attention of prospects you might not have otherwise reached.
Absolute fraud. They will let you join community and have access “to all the knowledge in the world” they will provide some links that will actually not be any more helpful than any regular youtube video that you can get for free. And they will offer initial one month trial fee but after that automatically charge your credit card even if you don’t want to extend with them. Of course they will not tell you this. After that wealthy affiliate will bomb you with emails to join again pay again, extend your membership. All automatically pre made emails for every single holiday new emails will arrive with new offers, telling you they are sorry you left and that WA became so much better, just come back pay again and see for yourself 🙂 They also made through WA lot of “honest” WA review websites that will tell you how they are legit. I didnt understand all this before I gave them my money.
Now I work much less. I try to put in an 8 hour day but with distractions, hobbies, etc I probably do about 3-4 hours of hard work per day. I’m trying not to get too lazy though, because running an affiliate website does take consistent work to stay relevant. It’s not a total “retire early and do nothing” type of plan. You gotta work to grow your business!
The implementation of affiliate marketing on the internet relies heavily on various techniques built into the design of many web-pages and websites, and the use of calls to external domains to track user actions (click tracking, Ad Sense) and to serve up content (advertising) to the user. Most of this activity adds time and is generally a nuisance to the casual web-surfer and is seen as visual clutter. Various countermeasures have evolved over time to prevent or eliminate the appearance of advertising when a web-page is rendered. Third party programs (Ad-Aware, Adblock Plus, Spybot, pop-up blockers, etc.) and particularly, the use of a comprehensive HOSTS file can effectively eliminate the visual clutter and the extra time and bandwidth needed to render many web pages. The use of specific entries in the HOSTS file to block these well-known and persistent marketing and click-tracking domains can also aid in reducing a system's exposure to malware by preventing the content of infected advertising or tracking servers to reach a user's web-browser.
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.
This course will teach you how making money online works, how to do keyword research, and walk you through building your first website. There are 10 video lessons in this module. At the end of each lesson, you will be given several tasks to complete. These tasks are important. They're the step-by-step blueprint for building a successful affiliate site.
Unfortunately, I am not acquainted with Indian Tax law, so I am not able to advice you on this. But, I would presume that if you earn income from affiliate marketing, your profit from the business will be tax under your personal income. That is unless you create a company to run the operation, then it will be subject to corporate tax, and the dividends receive from the company will be subject to your local personal tax.
The best thing about Wealthy Affiliate is the fact that you can Get Started For Free and learn the neccessary skills on how to build an online business. If you only have enough time to do this part time, that’s totally fine. The training was actually designed for you to work at this at your own pace. You should seriously consider at least checking out what the premium membership has to offer you within your first 7 days.
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.
That was correct, everything is included all in 1 place so there is no need to go anywhere else. There have been several WA members that has had adult sites and they did good with them. This shouldn’t be a problem and if this is the niche that you would like to pursue I would advise you to do so. This is your business that you are building and you can choose anything that you would like.
hmm. . . i am kind of new to online business and i got redirected to this post from your WARDCOPYCAT post. i read through and was developing interest until i got to the place where you listed countries not accepted and my country happened to be number on the list. That was heart breaking though. . . But still great job here keep it up. i will just keep searching for the right online job to do that accept my country.
Personally for me, I was able to go full time and I was able to quit my job within 10 short months of becoming a premium member by simply following the training, leveraging the premium tools that come with the premium membership, and getting the help and support that I much needed when I first started. My income has grown considerably since then and it continues to grow more each day. The question you should be asking yourself is can you really afford to not become a premium member?
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.
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.
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.
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?
This Is Ok in my mind, because it is Your right, Im glad we can express ourselves. Im also glad You took the time for yourself, to look into WA. I hope you will Understand my comment is on the otherside of yours. Im not a robot in any shape or form. I believe with all my experiance that its a good program and we both took our time here to express ourselves. We both deserve the respect for our opinion's. I respect yours You have a great life,my best wishes to your success JB
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.
