At Wealthy Affiliate they will teach you how to create and run a affiliate website.

An ‘affiliate website’ is a website that promotes a product or service. If visitors to the website like what they see, click on the link and make a purchase, the owner of the ‘affiliate website’ earns a commission for referring the visitor.

There is a proven path to success with affiliate marketing. Wealthy Affiliate shows you the path.


How much money can you make with Wealthy Affiliate?

This is a common question, and one that I am sure you are wondering. The earning potential at Wealthy Affiliate hinges on how motivated you are to succeed. Some members make a few hundred/monthly, other members make $20,000/monthly.

Your earning potential can be as little or as much as you want it to be depending on how dedicated you are to building your website(s) and succeeding. The harder you work, the more earning potential you have. I asked this question to one of the Wealthy Affiliate owners when I was a new member. His response:

“I have never seen a member fail, who fully immersed themselves into their online business.”

Take a look at some success stories that are being shared with the rest of the WA community:

Keep in mind that these are regular people like you and me who are new to making money online. If they can do it, you certainly can as well.

 

What types of products or services can you promote?

This is up to you.

Lots of affiliate marketers choose products or services to promote that they have a passion for. For example if you have a passion for scuba diving, you can promote scuba diving equipment on your website. If you have a passion for physical fitness, you can promote a weight loss program.

The possibilities are endless.

And it doesn’t even have to be a product or service that you are even passionate about. It could be any product or service that has profit and earning potential.

Inside Wealthy Affiliate there is a guide for helping you choose products or services to promote.


Do you need to keep an inventory of products?

stack of boxes

No. This is one of the best parts of affiliate websites. You promote products or services that you don’t even own. All you need to start and run a profitable online business is access to a computer. There are endless companies that offer affiliate programs.

A ‘affiliate program’ is a program that allows sellers to earn commission by promoting and selling a companies products or services on their website.

For example, a really popular website that offers a affiliate program is amazon.com. Its totally free to set up an affiliate account, and once you do you can begin promoting whatever products you want from the amazon.com website. I have a few websites promoting amazon products. When my affiliate website refers someone to amazon.com and they make a purchase, I earn commission for the sale.

I just used amazon’s affiliate program as an example, there are tons of affiliate programs you can use with all types of products and services to promote. You will learn about different programs¬†inside Wealthy Affiliate.

My Personal Experience With Wealthy Affiliate

There are plenty of Wealthy Affiliate reviews out there, so I want to give you my personal experience and initial impressions of Wealthy Affiliate.

I first came across WA while searching ways to create a business from home. Like most people I absolutely hated my job and wanted nothing more then to start my own business.

After reading a few reviews of Wealthy Affiliate, I decided to give the free membership a try. I figured since they weren’t asking for any personal information at sign up I could see what Wealthy Affiliate was all about without being pressured into buying anything.

I honestly didn’t have much hope for WA in the beginning. I guess the fact that so many business programs had failed me before, it sort of soured my outlook on the whole start your own online business thing.

warm welcome script

After creating my account, I was immediately¬†greeted by the owners Kyle and Carson, and was welcomed with personal messages by about 20¬†different members inside the Wealthy Affiliate community. It felt good to be welcomed so warmly, and to know I wasn’t alone in my journey.

I got to work on my first free website right away. I couldn’t help thinking as I was building my first website, that what I was really doing was taking steps toward a successful future.

I quickly saw the benefits of having a community full of fellow affiliate marketers to use at my disposal. Any questions I asked were answered in a few minutes by people who were actually extremely knowledgable on the subject.

The training videos were well put together and easy to follow along with. I remember watching the videos and thinking, “I really have a chance to be successful here.”

Its a good feeling when the outlook on your financial future is full of hope.

It was an easy choice for me to upgrade. I don’t think a week passed before I decided to upgrade to a premium membership. I wanted everything the community and Wealthy Affiliate had to offer me. I felt that was my best chance at success, and I think I was right.

For me, I see Wealthy Affiliate as an invaluable source of information.

Cons

The only con that I can think of was the feeling of being overwhelmed at first. There is so much information and things to discover at Wealthy Affiliate. I’m the type of person that wants to absorb as much information as quickly as I can.

My advice is to just pace yourself with the training. The training videos are broken into short segments so they are easy to watch and digest what is being discussed.

Kyle actually touches on this in his first video, and does a good job breaking down the Wealthy Affiliate site while putting everything into perspective.

  1. Awesome post chalk full of information on Wealthy Affiliate. I think that you are right, they are a great way to help guide anyone if they are willing to learn and willing to take the time to get started. Keep up the great work, Your website is awesome!

  2. This was a really awesome review of Wealthy Affiliate. The video was a really nice touch. As a Wealthy Affiliate member myself I have to agree with you when you say that you cannot fail if you fully immerse yourself into building your online business. One of my favorite mantras that I use to motivate myself is, “The name of the game is to stay in the game until you win the game”. Persistence, determination and consistency will definitely pay off in the end.

    And again, I agree that the free membership is the hook that catches everyone. But it is totally worth it. I have joined wealthy Affiliate and never regretted it to date. There are just so many features and benefits each on its own is worth the annual fee of $359 – whether it is the training or the community support and networking or the website tools or even the keyword tool. The value you get at Wealthy Affiliate is second to none.

    Thanks for sharing your experience. I am sure you will help others make the right choice – to join Wealthy Affiliate.
