Judging by some of the messages that I received, I’m not convinced that Kyle is actually running the show anymore. It’s more likely that several people are employed to deal with enquiries on his behalf and send out a lot of standard replies. I got a couple that had no relation to my queries and some of my more awkward questions were not even answered.
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?
…But doesn’t being an affiliate for Wealthy Affiliate make me just another one of those affiliate marketers who is being biased and just trying to make a buck off of you? Well, ummmm…. Sort of! But at least I’m honest about it, right? I hope you give me a chance by continuing to read this Wealthy Affiliate review. I have no intention of making this one big sales pitch. I just want to provide you with the information and allow you to make your own decision. If I get a commission, great! If not, that’s ok too. Here’s a screenshot of my Wealthy Affiliate profile.
You can do the marketing of anything through your that site. Wealthy Affiliate teaches you to make the site in your own subject of interest, in your own niche and drive traffic into that site and making money out of it. So, that is not limited to anything. You use that site for any purpose, to market anything. That is why we have said through Wealthy Affiliate we can learn to earn from our own website, from the companies like eBay, Amazon Google Adsense etc., and many more. So, we have used "etc." and "many more" which means there are still much more things you can do. Hope now you understand.
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.
They have this way to earn credits where you can offer feedback on other people’s sites. I’ve been there many times to try to make some WA credits and guess what? There’s never a site that needs reviewing. Sure there’s something fishy there. Sure their program showed me the basics of affiliate marketing but not much I couldn’t find elsewhere online. BTW, how do Kyle and Carlson reply to all the newcomers? It is some kind of AI bot that knows how to reply differently each time?
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.
Another drawback of Wealthy Affiliate is the delay in response by Kyle. Moreover, his response is far better than any other Work Home Business Companies' owner. We know that Kyle is busy because Wealthy Affiliate already has more than 100,000s active members who all want the help from Kyle, but also, he must figure out where it is urgent to help someone. Sometimes even we found that someone asked for help and community members gave him wrong information and Kyle was not there to correct it. So if you are not sure that the support from community members is authentic, then, it is better to ask Kyle in his profile or through private message section and wait till he replies before you move further on it.
But thing is, SFM (six figure mentors) does a really similar thing. They are almost identical to wealthy affiliate. They also have an option for their members (cough cough, elite members only) to become affiliates for their platform. Very shady if I may say so indeed. I am not saying that SFM is a scam, but it may highly likely be one in my opinion. I plan to cancel my membership with wealthy affiliate as soon as possible. Luckily I haven’t created a website yet.
Direct Response Marketing is designed to generate an immediate response from consumers, where each consumer response (and purchase) can be measured, and attributed to individual advertisements. This form of marketing is differentiated from other marketing approaches, primarily because there are no intermediaries such as retailers between the buyer and seller, and therefore the buyer must contact the seller directly to purchase products or services. Direct-response marketing is delivered through a wide variety of media, including DRTV, radio, mail, print advertising, telemarketing, catalogues, and the Internet.
YouTube is becoming more and more important to marketers lean more heavily on video-based content. While, of course, you should continue to optimize your text-based content for search engine optimization, don't forget to consider YouTube as an important channel as well. Not only is YouTube great for hosting your videos and getting them shared across social networks, it's also important to optimize your videos for search to get found on YouTube as well.
There's a lot to learn when it comes to the internet marketing field in general, and the digital ether of the web is a crowded space filled with one know-it-all after another that wants to sell you the dream. However, what many people fail to do at the start, and something that Sharpe learned along the way, is to actually understand what's going on out there in the digital world and how businesses and e-commerce works in general, before diving in headfirst.
I’ve got about a year in with them and I have not made one penny yet and right now, I truly feel that this has been such a waste of time, Effort and Energy! I realize now that there will not be any money coming in whatsoever! So, after I finish up here, I’m quitting WA! I’m tired of paying out so much money and seeing zero results. It’s very depressing and I can’t believe that I fell for their lies! ZERO RESULTS- ZERO PROFITS – ZERO LIFE!!
Besides all of the training online at Wealthy Affiliate that you can get, you have access to lots of support from people who have already succeeded. One of the best parts of this program is you have access to working with highly successful individuals like yourself just by entering into a chat with them from your Dashboard. Anytime you need any help, just ask. When you work with successful people you are more likely to succeed yourself.
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!
Yep, I agree with what Anusuya Choudhury said. Many people are looking for easy $$$$ and fall for the promise to make lots of money. But can you blame WA for that? They explicitly tell everywhere in the training that you have to work hard to achieve any success. The sky is a limit. And that limit is you. So, you don’t have to give a negative review just because someone did not hand you everything on the plate without hard work. You can’t just be so negative because your level of expertise is high and WA couldn’t give you what you were looking for. Support is amazing there. Not everyone is a tech like you. But they can start and learn from 0 on WA platform. Writers, cooks, motivational speakers – they all can surpass you and generate tones of money just following their passion. You are affiliate yourself. So, it doesn’t matter where you get your knowledge as long as it works for you.
I remember I use to be a free member but once I saw Kyles own website that compares Swagbucks to Wealthy Affiliate then I knew it was B.S… Comparing a reward site to a “training” site is ridiculous.. Not to mention all the hundreds of fake sites that pretend to review other sites that are in competition with wealthy affiliate and give them bad scores and put wealth affiliate as #1… All the information that they give on their crap website is free on the internet if you know where to look.
Hi Craig – Correct me if I am wrong, but your information about not being able to access your website after going Premium is also misleading. Your domain name is your own and you can move it to any other hosting company. When you quit your hosting from any company — including Wealthy Affiliate — of course you can no longer access your site from there. You make it sound like your site is “lost” or somehow WA makes it “disappear” when in fact all you need to do is pay someone else to host it and move your domain. You will pay for hosting no matter what, it is often $25+ per month for not even as many features as are offered by Wealthy Affiliate. This means that for an additional $25 you can access on-going training on SEO updates, social media, and other necessary services. This seems like a deal to me. Yes, Wealthy Affiliate makes it sound easier than it is to get to the money, but I would rather that people figure out that they are not willing to do the work for a $49 loss than for a $300-$1000+ loss as is the cost of other programs.
We have “Carefully” scoured through ALOT of the “Affiliate Networks” in hopes of adding the right content for our visitors. The trueth is; whether it be the least popular networks OR the top notch programs, they each have various conditions which will screw you from generating revenue. Adding their links and promoting their advertisers is nothing more than a waste of YOUR time and YOUR webspace if you don’t get paid to have them there sooo, don’t get in a hurry to join any affiliate programs until you read through their “Terms & Conditions” thoroughly and completely!
7. Rakuten was formerly known as Buy.com and has since grown into a monster. Rakuten ranks among the top three e-commerce companies in the world with over 90,000 products from 38,500 shop owners and more than 18 million customers. Among its numerous online properties, its flagship B2B2C (business-to-business-to-consumer) model e-commerce site Rakuten Ichiba is the largest e-commerce site in Japan and among the world’s largest by sales.
Bullseye Brian and I’m happy that you were entertained for a while. Looks like the “Ambassador” put a stop to my little experiment. However it confirmed my suspicions that you don’t need an IQ of 130 to be a member of WA. I would’ve thought that most people would recognize a name like HughJarse as a potential troll and leave well alone. However it seems to make no difference with that lot as they all appear to be brainwashed by the cult of “Wealthy Affiliate”. It looks very similar to most religion which I suspect maybe the key to their success.
Update 3: Wealthy Affiliate has completely banned people from Nigeria to join WA even as a premium member because of continuous hacking and cheating incident from Nigeria. Wealthy Affiliate knows it is not a good decision to ban everyone from one country just due to the act of some people, but they take this decision after trying every measures they can to save their site from such incident. So, we are very sorry for this. However, if you are from Nigeria and you want to join Wealthy Affiliate, then you can go for second choice after Wealthy Affiliate which is ChrisFarrellMembership and about which you can find detail by clicking this link:- newsonlineincome.com/chris-farrell-membership/
In most countries, customers also have the right to unsubscribe to unsolicited catalogs and to block bulk emails from their in-boxes. A number of anti-spam and anti-tracking initiatives are also prevalent online. Customers cannot usually completely prevent targeted marketing, but they can often do a lot to help keep the information stored on them in check.
