The business that I started with the help of WA is this website you are visiting right now. This is where I make most of my money, I have a few others that makes me a couple hundred a month. I am currently enrolled in the boot camp program that Wealthy Affiliate has. This website is the outcome of the boot camp training and it has been one wild ride.
A. Different companies and networks online offer different ways of payment. For example if you are an affiliate of Amazon, they will pay you out through a check, gift card or a direct bank deposit. Some companies prefer to pay you by PayPal while other might go a different route. If you want to know how a company pays out the commission you can simply do a Google search on their affiliate program.
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.
Really don't understand this guy. He wanted help with his site so he goes into it trying to get free help by joining the free trial meant for begginers wanting to try Wealthy Affiliate. So when he gets in there it sounded like he was rude to the people trying to give him advice pertaining to the question(s) he was asking. If he knew everything he claimed he knew he should have went for the paid membership that gave him access to much more that he could have went through himself. But because he didn't get his questions anwered he thought to make Wealthy Affiliate pay by writing it on Ripoff report. The guy sounds bendictive an imature which probably shows in his website.
As a member of Wealthy Affiliate, I highly recommend it myself. I also agree that in order to derive benefit or results, one has to put in sufficient time and energy. But other than that, with the help of WA training and support, the sky’s pretty much the limit. One can have 0 traffic or 100,000 visitors per month depending on how well one follows the instructions or training. I admit I myself have previously not followed all the instructions closely and spent too much wasted time on things that don’t matter very much (at least not in early stage of game) such as obsessing over which WordPress template to use, but now I remind myself to stay on track more and follow instructions.
Developing and monetizing microsites can also garner a serious amount of sales. These sites are advertised within a partner site or on the sponsored listings of a search engine. They are distinct and separate from the organization’s main site. By offering more focused, relevant content to a specific audience, microsites lead to increased conversions due to their simple and straightforward call to action.
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.
I’m glad that you were able to find my site. I like to think of WA as your 1 stop shop for just about anything you want to learn about online/affiliate marketing. They teach SEO, PPC, Email marketing, Video Marketing, and everything in between. The training offered at OMG doesn’t quite live up to my standards, and it’s extremely overpriced in my opinion.
As regards to the final question "Is wealthy Affiliate Worth it?", the answer is Yes. I do recommend it to anyone who is willing to put hard work and effort on his business online. As I said previously on this review, you won't get rich overnight but if you manage to follow the training step by step and you are consistent, I guarantee you that you will se results.

I agree that the internet can be a scary place when it comes to trying to find a legit place to learn how to make money online. It doesn’t matter if you have never touched a computer in your whole life or how old you are. If you can follow simple directions and have a determination to learn everything you can about Internet marketing, It will be impossible for you to fail. If I can learn this, I know that anyone can and I would love to take you by the hand and show you how to get started.


This is actually the perfect schedule for you to work on this. If you can work on this 4 days a week you will be getting the foundation of your business in place and making some really nice progress along the way. I think this is going to work out really nicely for you Sameer if you are willing to work hard and follow simple step by step directions.
There are a variety of different ways you can get paid. Depending on which affiliate programs you sign up with you can get paid through Paypal which is how I get paid and it’s the most common way. Lots of affiliate programs also pay you through direct deposit to your bank account. You simply enter your details when you sign up and after you start making sales they will deposit your earnings into your account. You could also choose to get a check in the mail if you would prefer to get paid this way.
To learn from affiliate marketing, the first rule is to be patient. Without this virtue, it is going to be difficult to stay the path till you start seeing profits, as the learning curve can be quite steep in the initial days. However, make sure you have chosen the right product, built the correct website for such a product, and have a good lead generation strategy, and these things will propel you towards success.
I am sure you hear this a lot from people but I am going to say it anyway. I am 66 years old and I am looking for something that I can do when I retire. I have looked at and tried several online business opportunities and I have been burned and disappointed not to say frustrated. Wealthy Affiliate sounds like something I would like but I am just a little leery because of past experience. I understand I can join for free but is it totally free or are there any hidden charges? I have had that happen before and it sucks.
Yes it is definitely not a get rich quick scheme, it takes A LOT of work – which is what I try to get across in this review. You need to be comfortable with doing a lot of work for 6 months and not get paid a dime. That is not something that many people can follow through with. But it is, unfortunately, part of the process, and it can lead to very satisfying results later on.
As for where to place a disclosure, the guiding principle is that it has to be clear and conspicuous. The closer it is to your recommendation, the better. Putting disclosures in obscure places – for example, buried on an ABOUT US or GENERAL INFO page, behind a poorly labeled hyperlink or in a “terms of service” agreement – isn’t good enough. Neither is placing it below your review or below the link to the online retailer so readers would have to keep scrolling after they finish reading. Consumers should be able to notice the disclosure easily. They shouldn’t have to hunt for it.

Hi Stacey, I can relate to you getting burned by other work from home offers as I have got scammed out of several thousands of dollars in the past. I just kept up my search and that is when I came upon Wealthy Affiliate. I came across them last year, and ever since then I have made it my mission to warn other people about work from home scams. I now try and lead everyone to a safe place to learn about working from home and online business. If you are looking for a place to help with school loans or making money online you have came to the right place.
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.
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. 
I love WA because they are honest about what it takes to succeed. They don’t lie to people telling them that they can earn quick money by doing these simple things. If you want to succeed online then you have to be willing to work. And WA provides all the tools you need to succeed. Plus, the community of like-minded people is always ready to help. I’d recommend WA to anyone.
The thing that is so different about Wealthy Affiliate is that they will show you the correct and proper way to get started in Internet marketing. Other education platforms are hyped up and they tell you that you will be making thousands of dollars within a couple of weeks which is not true. Wealthy Affiliate is unlike anything else out there because they tell you up front that this will take lots of time and plenty of hard work and they also let you get started for FREE. I would say that if you put in at least a couple hours a day doing this and work really hard at it then you should start seeing some money coming in within your first 3 months. You should keep in mind that you are starting a business from scratch and building it up so it will take some time.
In April 2008 the State of New York inserted an item in the state budget asserting sales tax jurisdiction over Amazon.com sales to residents of New York, based on the existence of affiliate links from New York–based websites to Amazon.[40] The state asserts that even one such affiliate constitutes Amazon having a business presence in the state, and is sufficient to allow New York to tax all Amazon sales to state residents. Amazon challenged the amendment and lost at the trial level in January 2009. The case is currently making its way through the New York appeals courts.

I think it’s great that you can start a free account without providing a credit card. And from what I can see, it’s not a “free trial” where you will only get so much time and then you have to pay. It looks like you can work in the free version indefinitely if you wanted to. That’s really cool. So if you don’t want to commit to paying for Premium, you never have to.

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.
Hello! So this may have already been answered/asked and I missed it. If so, sorry! Do you have to purchase the products you are selling before the demand is there? For example, I start my website and all for sports gear. I have no product or customers yet. In order to get started, I have to buy 200+ items of sportswear to stock and supply my web business and then try to sell those items.
The reason you got this notification is because the starter membership isn’t available in your country. It is in NO WAY a spam website as they have a very strict spam free policy that you must abide by when you join. You must live in either Nigeria or India as these are the only 2 countries that I know of where the starter membership isn’t available.
Here is my question: “What do you know about ‘Jim Cockrum’s Coaching Course?’ I was debating, if it does not cost me “an arm and a leg” to join the course but then I start reading a few negative reports/reviews on “Ripoff Report” (old ones ) which made me slightly uneasy! Also, I noticed that apparently Jim and/or the “Coaching Office” is located in Utah! This makes me kind of uneasy also, because many Internet operators, companies , etc., are located in Utah! I happened to deal with a few of them and they all left me with a bad taste in my mouth and/or ‘burned’, so to speak!.
Some merchants run their own (in-house) affiliate programs using dedicated software, while others use third-party intermediaries to track traffic or sales that are referred from affiliates. There are two different types of affiliate management methods used by merchants: standalone software or hosted services, typically called affiliate networks. Payouts to affiliates or publishers can be made by the networks on behalf of the merchant, by the network, consolidated across all merchants where the publisher has a relationship with and earned commissions or directly by the merchant itself.

If you get started with the training it will walk you through each lesson and give you a few tasks to complete for each one. Depending on how hard you work at this it is possible to reach $1000 in 6 months time. The thing about this business is you will get out of it what you put into it. If you work really hard at this and learn all you can about building your online business you will be very successful.


So I was almost convinced to join ‘Ameriplan’ when I googled reviews for it and came across this website and started browsing… And I am so glad I did! I have a newborn baby, and want to work from home to avoid getting a sitter, and anyone with kids knows that you just dont have money to waste on a SCAM… diapers are expensive! lol But, I was reading this article and I would really like to know more about it… Do you have to pay the $47.00 before you start making money? And what exzactly are you getting paid for?

Many affiliate programs run with last-click attribution, where the affiliate receiving the last click before the sale gets 100% credit for the conversion. This is changing. With affiliate platforms providing new attribution models and reporting features, you are able to see a full-funnel, cross-channel view of how individual marketing tactics are working together. For example, you might see that a paid social campaign generated the first click, Affiliate X got click 2, and Affiliate Y got the last click. With this full picture, you can structure your affiliate commissions so that Affiliate X gets a percentage of the credit for the sale, even though they didn’t get the last click. 
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?
While any “regular” job requires you to be at work to make money, affiliate marketing offers you the ability to make money while you sleep. By investing an initial amount of time into a campaign, you will see continuous returns on that time as consumers purchase the product over the following days and weeks. You receive money for your work long after you’ve finished it. Even when you’re not in front of your computer, your marketing skills will be earning you a steady flow of income.
Honestly, I think this website can help people learn about buildings website, but you have to spend a lot of money and time to achieve something. I been a member for a year. Didn’t make any money, but I paid 359 US$. But in the same time, I learned a lot about building websites. I am not happy about them right now because after I stopped my yearly membership at June 13, 2017. They took my money 359US$ and shut down my account. Now I couldn’t even log in my account, on my web page, showed ether I become monthly or yearly membership. I couldn’t even log in, but I remember free membership is allowed. Right? What is going on here?. The good thing is my bank promised me I will get my money refund. So, not too bad, at least I didn’t lost my money. They are not very kind to the people don’t want continue their membership. Very disappointed.
Hey, a coworker at my part time job mentioned the ameriplan job and I’m still on the fence but I came across this website. Is there good money within the video games or cooking areas of this as those are my two main hobbies. I do have a jewelry business that I started on facebook but it’s not really going anywhere at the moment,however that is a hobby as well, so I was wondering about the video game or cooking areas of those are profitable or not? Also wondering about the pay rate is just compiled monthly or can you choose different timeframes based on traffic? Thanks 🙂
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.

I will admit that i have not read the entire website here on Wealthy Affiliate. But i read enough where I’m more then interested yet concerned its for someone who has a business idea of sorts and this is where you go to start that idea. Also, didn’t read all the comments so if this question has already been asked i do apologize. Just moved to a new home my husband and i bought to start our soon growing family. Hard to find good work and after the baby comes it will of course be even harder. I haven’t had a “desk” job in over 7 years+ but this seem to be right up my alley so to speak. Or at least something very similar that keeps me home where I’m going to be needed more then anything. Without allowing myself to write my life story (novel) i will leave it at this, – I’ve looked into many online jobs or the get rich quick crap and have come up empty handed. I’m not trying to get rich quick as good as that sounds to most people i simply have a very strong professional work ethic and coming out of the military less then a year i think its best after my son is born to work on my own instead of expecting so much out of the normalcy of civilians. Sorry this comment/question turned out to be as long as it did. Highly appreciate your time and consideration of my ramblings 🙂
But there are problems with the domain specific email address. For some reason I can only receive emails. If I try to send or reply it gets caught in a perpetual loop and never gets sent. Technical support says it doesn’t see the problem. But their tests only use local servers which are not filtered thru a network. Will moving the domain to a different webhost fix this problem? I can’t be sure, but I need to look for a solution somewhere.
As a premium Wealthy Affiliate member you do get access to building up to 50 websites, this does include hosting. Domain names are not included as that’s something that’s not owned or controlled by WA. All domain names are created and controlled by ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers). You can purchase the domain names directly through WA or your favorite domain re-seller. Typical cost is about $12-$14 per year, per domain.
These are some pretty broad interests and we can work on narrowing them down now that you have joined WA. It also looks like we have quite a few things in common as I have many of the same interests as you. I’m also a huge gamer myself and I’m passionate about electronics. One of my very first niches was electronics and this ended up being a busted niche and I failed miserably at it when I first started.

When beginning your affiliate marketing career, you’ll want to cultivate an audience that has very specific interests. This allows you to tailor your affiliate campaigns to that niche, increasing the likelihood that you’ll convert. By establishing yourself as an expert in one area instead of promoting a large array of products, you’ll be able to market to the people most likely to buy the product.
You can get started for free by clicking on the blue “Become A Member” button above. Simply provide a valid email address and create a username and password and you’re in. I will be getting in contact with you within 60 minutes of you joining to see if you are finding your way around the community OK, answering any questions you may have, and providing you with the link to your first training lesson.
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!
The best overall assessment of WA I’ve read yet. I’ve been a member on and off since 2015 and I’m currently on the yearly membership through October. However, I’ve still not made any real money, although I’ve made a bit here and there. I will peruse your site. On the other hand, I will ask you straight up how you go about establishing affiliate partnerships? Part of my problem is I’m not clear about what to market. As a life insurance agent, I’ve tried that to no avail. I’ve also tried marketing WA itself with very minimal results. I’m an affiliate with Amazon, EBay, and Target but I’m doing nothing. To be fair, I have not been as focused on WA and affiliate marketing as I once was. I’m also a teacher and have returned to the classroom. I found myself in bankruptcy as the result of putting all my eggs in one basket, going full-bore with WA, spending all my time and credit there. I remain hopeful I’ll one day finally get it. I’m out of school for the summer and plan to spend at leas the next 2-3 months as close to full time as possible.
and you didnt mention morocco among the countries not able to join the strater plan from , i just wanted to have access the course level one before geting to course level two wish still interest me to go further in my long term journey , but i just want that first insight before jumping into the premium plan , i will really appreciate if you can help me on this , thanks in advance
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.

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.

Cookie stuffing involves placing an affiliate tracking cookie on a website visitor's computer without their knowledge, which will then generate revenue for the person doing the cookie stuffing. This not only generates fraudulent affiliate sales but also has the potential to overwrite other affiliates' cookies, essentially stealing their legitimately earned commissions.

Although there is no exact answer to this question I can tell you this: The amount of money you can earn is directly related to what you do and how you do it. The folks who are highly successful have one thing in common – they followed the training to the dot and they took massive action. Learning how to do something is great but you need to apply this knowledge in order to actually start earning.


As you may know, you can get a free or Basic account. You can also opt for Premium access which costs $49 a month. There are perks to joining with Premium access because you can get much more from the program in terms of training and opportunity. For example, with the $49 a month subscription you get 50 websites rather than just two. You also get more training and the one-on-one coaching is unlimited.
Thanks again for your reply. Few Other members in my WA research have told me that not every niches are profitable in WA. So picking a niche that is not profitable can make all of my work go down the drain; while others can succeed because they picked profitable niches, which guarantees them more relevant traffic, sales and success in WA. How can I find out in WA which niches are profitable, if I join WA? Also, can I incorporate as many languages as I want in all of my websites? Like if my website is in English, the visitors can scroll up or down the Language section on my websites to choose to see the website in any language they prefer?
Hi Jamaal, Yes it is possible to do this on a smartphone or tablet but it might be a little harder then if you were on a PC or laptop. The great thing about doing this through a mobile device is you can work on your business from anywhere as long as you have an internet connection. If you have any more questions or need help getting started feel free to hit me up man.
Know when (and when not) to use Viglinks and Skimlinks. If you applied to an affiliate program but were denied, you might be able to still be an affiliate for that advertiser through a secondary affiliate program like VigLink or Skimlinks. Basically, they themselves are affiliates and will split their affiliate commission with you if you put their affiliate link in your content for an advertiser. Obviously, the commission rate is lower for you in this case, so if you ever are accepted into the advertiser’s affiliate program directly, immediately switch from using VigLink / Skimlinks affiliate links to your own.
One of the reasons I like Wealthy Affiliate is because it enables me to provide this blog for free to people, but also be able to sell a genuinely high-quality product that I know is always updated and provides a better service than I ever could. Plus, when people sign up using my affiliate link, I can still provide one-on-one coaching and support as a way to add value and as a “thank you” for signing up using my link. Wealthy Affiliate truly is a win-win-win setup.
