I am a HUGE fan of the “freemium” business model. Wealthy Affiliate follows that model by offering a free membership account. The free membership gives you limited access in the Wealthy Affiliate dashboard. Some of your access lasts forever, such as some of the training videos and community features, while other features only last for a limited time, such as the live chat feature. Here is what you get with the free Wealthy Affiliate Membership:
Thanks for the encouraging article. It helped remind me why I joined WA in the first place. Such a great community of people and opportunities. The growth of your success truly is limited only by how much work you want to put into it! It’s super cool that you have found so much success. I’ve only been a member for about a month so I’m excited to see what the future holds!
Don't try to mislead people. WA hasn't banned the old member. They only ban new people to join from certain countries so that they can make their platform spam-free. It would be bad if they have banned their members, but they haven't. You are saying WA has banned people only from poor countries because WA thinks they can't pay the membership fee. Well, that is a completely wrong statement. WA has banned only 7 countries and those are India, Nigeria, Philippines, Pakistan, Vietnam, Bangladesh, and Egypt. Everyone knows these countries are not so poor, even some of them are rich countries. There are lots of countries poorer than these countries which haven't banned by WA. And, what's wrong if someone bashes the scam companies and promotes some legit companies? Who tells you scam revealing sites should not promote any particular program? If scam revealing sites don't promote anything, who will give them money to operate their site?

Ahmad, Great post and great information. I have some more specific questions for you relating to my personal company and how affiliate programs can tie into it. Is there a chance we could talk sometime soon? I think you may have the answers to several of my questions on whether affiliate marketing is what I am looking for or not. And if it’s not what I am looking for I think you can direct me in the direction I need to go.
Can you run a successful business by only using the free membership option at Wealthy Affiliate? Well, you can, but I wouldn’t recommend it. Instead, I recommend you sign up for the free Wealthy Affiliate membership as a way to try things out. Honestly, the free membership is set up to be a bit of a teaser to get you to sign up for premium eventually, but most of us expect that going in. What’s nice about it is you can judge for yourself, based on the free membership, whether it is worth it for you to sign up for premium. Ultimately, only you can decide if Wealthy Affiliate is high quality or not. You will get more than enough of an idea by signing up for their free membership option. On average, about 1 in every eight people upgrade to a premium membership.
The traffic was relevant. But they weren't getting more fields or more leads for people who just wanted to go view or test drive a car. So they created Crazy Egg to see how people engaged on someone's website. They put the code on there and it shows you if they are scrolling down, not scrolling, were they clicking, were they not clicking. They discovered that with many websites, visitors don't scroll pass the fold.
Who is your audience? What is your target market or niche? If you're targeting a specific niche like home security then perhaps you only need to sign up to ADT and SpyBase so your products match your audience. There’s no point promoting eco-mattresses to your blog that’s focused on reviewing drones. Again, you could sign up to a network that has a few different options in your field of interest or just go straight to your favourite suppliers and see if they have an affiliate program.
WA is considering to lift up the ban for Philippines, so from time to time they are testing by lifting up the ban.

Pay-Per-Click is also considered as widespread and common affiliate agreement. Under this agreement, the affiliate marketers will get fixed rates depending on the number of clients who click on the links placed on the affiliate website that leads to the merchant website. Here a purchase is not necessary to earn commissions, all that has to be done is that the client clicks the link and stays at least thirty seconds on the merchant website. Regardless of what the visitor does on the merchant site, this will not affect the commission.

If you had already submitted your website to Google WebMaster Tool, but also hasn't indexed yet, then you can contact the SiteRubix support team which you can find inside WA by clicking "SiteRubix" on the left hand side menu of WA and after that by clicking "Site Support". If there is some error within your website, WA SiteRubix support team will fix it within a day.
And those keywords, if you can nudge them up a few spots, you'll see a huge difference in your traffic. You don't even have to nudge them up by building links or anything like that. It could just be as simple as, “Oh this is the keyword that's getting me traffic impressions, but I'm not getting a lot of clicks. Why not?” If you look at your title and your meta description, chances are that keyword is not in there. So if you put that keyword in your title tag and your meta description, you'll get way more traffic.
5. Niche means the subject of your interest, in which you have some knowledge so that you can write several contents related to that niche. Actually, every niche is profitable, what matters is a number of contents you can write in that niche. So, instead of thinking which niche is profitable, think in which niche you can write many contents by targeting several different keywords, because more contents you can write, you gonna have more traffic to your website and then more conversions, sales or even a profit without selling anything or recruiting anyone, just from advertisements within your website by applying with services like Google Adsense. If you don't know what Google Adsense means, then you can follow this link:- https://www.newsonlineincome.com/how-to-make-money-from-google-adsense/ So, any niche is a profitable niche for you if you have some ideas on that niche so that you can write several contents on that topic on your own as well as by doing research on Google. So, sure you can pick any niche and keep on making website exactly as guided by Wealthy Affiliate lessons by doing proper keywords research for each content.

Platforms like Upwork or Fiverr are completely different than Wealthy Affiliate. In Upwork or Fiverr, you work for others to complete their tasks. The content you write there will give you some income but a very little compared with your hard work. However, Upwork, Fiverr are also not bad at all, but you need to have lots of competition there with other members to earn a good income.
Yes, service must be available to everyone. However, WA didn't ban those countries from starting. But when it faced lots of hacking and spamming problems especially from those countries, then WA unwillingly banned those countries to secure its website. After all, every business owners will think about the security of their business. But, WA still trying to find other ways to make its website secure so that it can unban those countries once again.
For example, when I first started back in 2009, I learned from a service called Solo Build It. I knew absolutely nothing about building an online business, let alone what “affiliate marketing” even meant. However, they changed my life and taught me how to build money-making websites online, which is what I’ve been doing with my life ever since. This is another great service to consider and you can read my review of Solo Build It here.

“ShareASale is solid. Been using them since 2013. Biggest problems with them is the interface is a little dated / wonky. It’s also difficult to deal directly with the advertisers. You think you’re speaking to an advertiser rep, but it’s really just someone from SAS. You have to use a special (hard to find) contact form to contact the advertiser….and it’s rare you get a direct response from them.”
