Yes I have been with WA for a while now (3 years to be exact) When first starting out I wouldn’t recommend starting more than 1 niche due to the fact that you will likely become overwhelmed trying to learn and write about 2 niches at the same time. Once you get some experience under your belt and are making some steady sales from 1 niche you could branch out into other niches (Like I did)
I have been a member of Wealthy Affiliate for close to a year. The lessons are great and easy to follow. There is so much information here that it takes a while to take it all in. They teach you to build your own website, join affiliate groups, write good content, and share it on social media. They have an awesome, positive community. I can talk to members from all over the world. We are willing to share our knowledge to help each other. After three months we can write trainings of our own to add to the wealth of information that is already available to WA members. It starts out free to join, with 7 days of free lessons, free starter membership and two free websites. You must go premium after that; but there is a discount for the first month. There is a discount also for going yearly. The training and community make the cost worthwhile. I give WA an A+++++++!
thanks for the review! In the past few months I’ve been contacted by Herbalife, Amway and Worldventures and am now sick of all those hyped like cult communities trying to sell you their “awesome” lifestyle. No more pyramid scheme for me, just honest business. That’s why I’d like a little honesty from you. My partner and I are really interested in building an online business based on our passions such as fitness/sport, travel, photography and food. I know these are big niches but could you make it clear how could we get affiliate connections in these areas without working for amazon etc? We don’t wanna sponsor single products in general but healthy, active, lifestyle choices. We wanna help people improving their life!
Affiliates were among the earliest adopters of pay per click advertising when the first pay-per-click search engines emerged during the end of the 1990s. Later in 2000 Google launched its pay per click service, Google AdWords, which is responsible for the widespread use and acceptance of pay per click as an advertising channel. An increasing number of merchants engaged in pay per click advertising, either directly or via a search marketing agency, and realized that this space was already occupied by their affiliates. Although this situation alone created advertising channel conflicts and debates between advertisers and affiliates, the largest issue concerned affiliates bidding on advertisers names, brands, and trademarks. Several advertisers began to adjust their affiliate program terms to prohibit their affiliates from bidding on those type of keywords. Some advertisers, however, did and still do embrace this behavior, going so far as to allow, or even encourage, affiliates to bid on any term, including the advertiser's trademarks.
Once I get a better idea of what you are interested in I can help you narrow down your niche and get you started down the right path. You can write your websites in whatever language you want and the one that you are most comfortable with. Google will translate them into the language that people have selected as their primary language. This is called Google translate and you may have visited a site that was in another language and had a pop up come up asking if you would like to have this website translated into your language of choice.
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.
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!
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.
There was one thing that I did have, and that was a desire to learn this stuff and become successful in this business. It doesn’t matter if you are 16 years old or 60 years old. If you have a burning desire to succeed here, and you would like to learn a new skill that could change your life for the better than I would highly suggest that you check out WA.
Affiliates discussed the issues in Internet forums and began to organize their efforts. They believed that the best way to address the problem was to discourage merchants from advertising via adware. Merchants that were either indifferent to or supportive of adware were exposed by affiliates, thus damaging those merchants' reputations and tarnishing their affiliate marketing efforts. Many affiliates either terminated the use of such merchants or switched to a competitor's affiliate program. Eventually, affiliate networks were also forced by merchants and affiliates to take a stand and ban certain adware publishers from their network. The result was Code of Conduct by Commission Junction/beFree and Performics, LinkShare's Anti-Predatory Advertising Addendum, and ShareASale's complete ban of software applications as a medium for affiliates to promote advertiser offers. Regardless of the progress made, adware continues to be an issue, as demonstrated by the class action lawsuit against ValueClick and its daughter company Commission Junction filed on April 20, 2007.

I found your amazing beard oil case study and as I read through the other parts of your website I realized that I am really interested in Affiliate model. I joined your free email course (which is awesome by the way) and I already picked my niche! Signing up to Wealthy Affiliate tonight because I am ready to jump in and make it happen. I understand that building a business will require time and effort but and I’m ready to invest as much time and effort as possible.
But you’d be surprised at the number of times I’ve visited a blog post or received an email that gives a glowing endorsement of a product or service, but doesn’t include enough links back to the company’s website. Sure, the brand’s name is mentioned throughout the content. Yet, that brand name is not hyperlinked with an affiliate link; instead, I need to scroll all the way to the bottom of the page or email in order to find a clickable link.
4.You can earn anywhere from 4%-75% commission on each item that people buy using your affiliate link. Depending on if its a physical or digital product. Digital products usually pay a lot higher commission because they can be sent to customers email address instead of sending it through the mail. Amazon starts you out at 4% and you can work your way up to earning 10% commission on everything you sell from your website.
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.
