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.
If you don’t like to write, do not sign up for Wealthy Affiliate. The business model that Wealthy Affiliate teaches revolves around producing lots of great content to attract website visitors from search engines. This means, as you build your business, you’ll be writing just about every day, just like I do on this very blog you’re reading. I’ve already written almost 4,000 words in this one post alone, and it’s not even close to being finished yet. Affiliate marketing takes work, and if you are unable or unwilling to write a TON of content, don’t even consider getting into this. Being a writer will end up being your main job.
For you to become an affiliate marketer here, you do not need to purchase them or seek permission to become an affiliate. All you need is to click the promote button, and you will have a platform to create your account. From here, you will receive an affiliate link that allows you to advertise anywhere. Once a person has clicked on the link you have provided and make a purchase, you will automatically get a commission for that sale.
On the other hand, in Wealthy Affiliate, you will learn to create your own business online. You will learn to create your own website and make that website ranking good at search pages like Google, Bing, Yahoo, Duckduckgo, etc. due to which you will get good traffic to your website. Once you will get the good traffic (visitors) to your website, you will also learn to make money from that traffic in various ways like by selling the products of reputed companies such as Amazon, eBay or by placing the advertisements of companies like Google AdSense and so on. So, you will write the contents for your own website, not to sell to others like in Upwork or Fiverr. And that content will keep on bringing new traffic for you forever due to which you can continuously earn income.
In other words, Wealthy Affiliate is a work from home business which provides you all necessary information and training that you need to be successful in the online work industry and also provides you the platform to earn money from it. The help and support section of Wealthy Affiliate is also top rated in the industry. It is also known as the Facebook for online workers because you can communicate with all the members within the Wealthy Affiliate as well as with the team of Wealthy Affiliate including owners and can make friends and get help from them. You can easily earn money online with help of Wealthy Affiliate in various ways such as:-
Social Media Managers know the pain of posting that perfect social media post only to have a follower find a typo a minute later and call you out. For marketers, using a social media tool to schedule all of your posts (so you catch those typos beforehand) is a must. But it also helps to get the right analytics from your social posts, especially on channels where it can be hard to get that information.
If you had already joined Wealthy Affiliate (WA), then first of all click "Get Started Here" green bar on the left hand side menu of WA and start to learn the lessons. You will soon understand the system of WA after learning lessons there. We are telling you this because from your queries it is clear that you didn't understand anything at all about WA. There is not any comparison between WA and TrafficMonsoon (TM) because TM is just an advertising company where there is always risk of site getting down as those kind of business rarely sustain for longer time and more than that TM doesn't offer the real online work where as WA is king of real online work field. WA is the platform to learn everything about online work industry. Through the lessons of WA, you will learn to earn by doing real online works such as by making your own money making website, by selling stuffs of big companies like Ebay, Amazon etc., by advertisements of Google Adsense and many more. You will also learn to make referrals in expert way in any online work companies you work (such as in TM). You will also earn from affiliates you make within WA. You can try to advertise your WA's referral link within TM as well, but don't expect to get decent amount quality referrals from there. Once you learn all courses within WA, then you will even get the idea to get huge number of active referrals in any program you work. So, first of all follow the lessons of WA one by one, step by step.
My intent isn’t to make this Wealthy Affiliate review yet another digital sales pitch. As I searched for Wealthy Affiliate reviews, I noticed the vast majority of them are very one-sided, don’t offer any other options, and are simply biased sales pitches from affiliate marketers trying to make a buck. So, in MY Wealthy Affiliate review, I’m going to do things a bit differently. Here are some of the topics I’d like to cover…
Hey Adrian, The Six Figure Mentors have a tiered membership training program that takes you from totoal digital newbie to empowered online entrepreneur. They offer various training packages that cater to different stages of your personal/professional development. Pricing starts from $197 for the basic membership package but goes all the way up to $20,000 for the top level training they offer. Who in their right mind would pay $20,000 for some training?! You’d be surprised. I see a lot of top people from the corporate world (Directors, CEO’s, Partners) invest this type of money because they want to fast-track their… Read more »
Thank you for sharing this about Wealthy Affiliate!!! I love the video, it's short and to the point! It truly is awesome the amount of Good reviews vs the bad. I believe probably at least 95% of the reviews I read on Wealthy Affiliate are all POSITIVE! Thank you also for sharing that information about countries unable to get the free program, and as well as Nigeria being completely banned; that really is such a shame. Wealthy Affiliate definitely is the way to go for beginner or expert, it's platform and lessons are top notch and TRULY teach!
Let me give you a practical example. Recently, we looked at one of our posts that was getting 14,000 impressions a month, and it got three clicks. So something was clearly wrong there, because the click-through rate was very low. But we made some changes to that and even though it wasn't a massive increase in traffic for us at the end of the day, we went from three clicks to about 200. So just keep looking for the low-hanging fruit that you have in Google Search Console, because it's going to add up across the board.

Also referred as Commission Junction, CJ is a large affiliate network offer affiliate programs for a wide range of popular and well-established organizations. This program acts as the intermediary between the merchants who will provide the products to sell and the affiliates who will do the marketing. This program is very advantageous as it provides very many affiliate programs at the same place.
A few of the things that I really love about WA are the fact that you can connect and get help very easily. I also enjoy using their SiteRubix platform, it is very easy to build websites and I come from a Joomla background and I most likely won’t be going back. It is too simple and feature rich to use the website builder and all of the extra tools that one with it.
Hey there, sorry my very hungry blog ate your first comment. I would say that for new bloggers, my #1 tip is to focus less on writing and more on scaling. I’ve seen a lot of new bloggers worry about every word they write and spend so much time on every article. My advice is to get your posts live and start focusing on real-world relationships. Guest posts and backlinks will help your Domain Authority and traffic 100x more than just writing new content. Plus, since blog posts need to be updated over time, just hit the publish button and worry about making the article perfect later. 🙂 Good luck on your journey. My email list has a 7-day course that goes over my strategy in detail.
I’m thinking of starting a blog, but unfortunately my passion is to discuss different varieties and species of fruit (tropical and non tropical). And produce is different all over the world, and isn’t really something that can get advertising and affiliates (right?) And there aren’t any products I could advertise on that kind of blog, because it’s just fruit. So is Wealth Affiliate not even something that I could consider using? I’d appreciate your input. Thank you!

My concern has always been the option between writing for your own blog on Wealthy Affiliate, or whether you would be better off writing for Upwork or Fivver or any number of others where you are paid at the end of your assignment. Residual income might be made, or it might not be on wealthy Affiliate, but you need to keep writing to make it happen, same as writing if you were on Upwork.
“A pyramid scheme (commonly known as pyramid scams) is a business model that recruits members via a promise of payments or services for enrolling others into the scheme, rather than supplying investments or sale of products or services. As recruiting multiplies, recruiting becomes quickly impossible, and most members are unable to profit; as such, pyramid schemes are unsustainable and often illegal.”
Wealthy Affiliate (WA) provides the complete training. The training provided by WA is complete to establish almost all kinds of online businesses. There are not only certification courses, there are also other lots of training provided by other expert members as well as you can get live webinar training every week from WA so that you will not miss out any latest updates. Once you become a premium member, you will have access to all of those trainings and, of course, hosting of 50 websites. So, definitely, it's worth. There are not any competitors who can provide the same service at $49. If you join other competitor programs, you have to pay at least around $2000 to $30,000 USD for upsells to get same training which here in WA you can get everything at $49. No upsells. Even the basic lessons are completely free.
There is nothing that I mentioned here that is not true. Mind you, I just noticed that you have been a Wealthy Affiliate member for a short period of time. WA is not a get rich quick scheme, you’ll need to invest, be hardworking and work towards your goals. All that takes time. Don’t tell me that sharing my story how I struggled for 11 months is promising people easy money. No!
3. We will not recommend anyone to work in Adstimer because it is following the same old business model of Paidverts which has been already proven completely unsustainable by Paidverts itself. In the past Paidverts did 3 times BAP swap to clear debt created by this business model and many members lose money on that time. At last Paidverts realize offering 150% can't be sustainable, so they decrease ROI rate and now Paidverts is only paying back 120% ROI. However, Adstimer is still paying 158% ROI and even they are not back up with anything like Paidverts is back up with their sister site MyTrafficValue. So, we are sure that sooner or later, Adstimer will either do something like BAP swap or just stop paying or even shutdown their site, and in all case members will lose. So, we will not recommend anyone to work in Adstimer.
Even though I know how to do marketing, I was never looking at what my competitors were ranking for. Because if you know what they are getting all their traffic for, not just the ranking and the positioning, but how many visitors they're driving, it's priceless. I will say that the Ahrefs data isn't 100% accurate, but if you multiply it by, let's say, two or three, then you will get a good understanding of how much traffic that keyword can drive. I found it roughly to be off by three within the marketing space. Overall, it's still a great tool to figure out what your competitors are ranking for and what you're not ranking for that you should be.
WA is considering to lift up the ban for Philippines, so from time to time they are testing by lifting up the ban. So, if you have been able to join WA as a free member from Philippines, then that is your lucky day. Congratulations for that because once you able to join WA even from banned countries, then they will never suspend your account ever. So, you can have your WA free account always from now.
Hi! I would like to ask, since there are some outsourcing sites or free agents out there whom we could hire to do the research and create an article/blog for the niche selected for an affordable fee only, would this be acceptable for a WA member who doesn't have the knack for writing/blogging to hire a free agent and do the job (blogging) for him/her? And is there a way to find out and make sure that what the freelancer writes is not a duplicate of another article/blog?
To talk about best affiliate programs my friend, I just started an Instagram page and testing the waters to see how effective it is long term. I did use IG mildly in the past to promote an affiliate program and made “some money.” But back then, I wasn’t really laser focused on “Instagram marketing for business.” Now that I’m changing my way of thinking and exploring new avenues for cost free promotion of affiliate programs and content, I’m striving to leverage Instagram and some platforms to realize my affiliate commission potential. Thanks again for a thought provoking post on “recurring affiliate commissions.”
