This Wealthy Affiliate review was initially posted in 2017, but I like to update it as the years go on. Wealthy Affiliate has never been better than it is right now in 2019. Last year was absolutely AMAZING for me in terms of Wealthy Affiliate sales and commissions. Check out the below screenshot of my Wealthy Affiliate earnings over the past 12 months.

WA – Drives you very hard and forces you to make as many referrals for their company as many as possible. They will even send you for free for a week to Vegas for a conference if you hit your target of 300 referrals in each year. Only if you are in the TOP 200 Challenge. The only way to get there is to produce training’s and Reply to Questions. The more reply’s you have & the more followers you have the Higher rank you have. It doesn’t matter what your reply’s say. Mostly they are programmed.
Hey Jordan, Thanks so much for your awesome feedback! Im so pleased this post has inspired you to create your own promotions for products/services, that’s what this is all about. Seeing messages like this inspires to create more great content for all of you to help you achieve your goals. Two awesome Hosting affiliate programs are WP Engine and Bluehost. The former pays $200 per referral, one of the highest in the industry. They specialise in hosting for WordPress-powered websites (I use it here on Bengu). Bluehost is another great affiliate program that offers realible, cost-effective hosting for the masses.… Read more »

Mobile Applications: Smartphone-based mobile apps contain several types of messages. Push Notifications are direct messages sent to a user either automatically or as part of a campaign. They include transactional, marketing, geo-based, and more. Rich Push Notifications are full HTML Push Notifications. Mobile apps also contain Interactive ads that appear inside the mobile application or app; Location-Based Marketing: marketing messages delivered directly to a mobile device based on the user's location; QR Codes (quick-response barcodes): This is a type of 2D barcode with an encoded link that can be accessed from a smartphone. This technology is increasingly being used for everything from special offers to product information. Mobile Banner Ads: Like standard banner ads for desktop Web pages but smaller to fit on mobile screens and run on the mobile content network
A cookie is a value stored on an end user’s computer and is used to track affiliate sales. The duration is the length of time the cookie stays on the computer after clicking an affiliate link. For example, with a 30-day cookie duration, this means that if a user clicks an affiliate link and makes a purchase within 30 days, the affiliate receives credit for the sale.
WA has banned few countries to join as a free member only to make their system secure. Actually, until 2014, none of the countries have been banned by WA. But, WA keep on facing lots of hacking, cheating and several problems specially from those countries. They try lots of ways to make their system secure, but people from those countries always find new ways to hack and attack the WA server. So, after letting everyone to join as a free member from 2005 to 2014, they ultimately decide to banned certain countries which were making them major problem at the end of 2014. Philippines falls under such country, that is the only reason they have banned it. Actually, they are still trying to unbanned all those countries because WA is losing clients from those countries. But, safety comes first. So, in order to make WA secure, they finally decide to banned those countries and let them join only as a premium member because those who join as a paid member, they can be easily track down if they ever try to hack the WA server. So, if you are from Philippines, you can only join as a premium member. WA knows that every people from those countries are not bad. But also due to some people, unwillingly WA has taken this step. So, it is not a discrimination. WA itself is losing revenues which it can generate from those countries. It is only for safety purpose. Sorry for your inconvenience.
Some direct marketers use of individual "opt-out" lists, variable printing, and better-targeted list practices to improve success percentages. Additionally, in order to avoid unwanted mailings, members of the marketing industry have established preference services that give customers more control over the marketing communications they receive in the mail.
Direct marketing is a type of advertising campaign that seeks to elicit an action (such as an order, a visit to a store or website or a request for further information) from a selected group of consumers in response to communication from a marketer. The communication itself may be in any of a variety of formats, including postal mail, telemarketing, direct email marketing and point-of-sale interactions. Customer responses should be measurable: For example, the marketer should be able to determine whether or not a customer offered a discount for online shopping takes advantage of the offer.
Don’t be fooled by that. If you mention that you are thinking about going premium but need time to think, they will extend that offer indefinitely. However, I think if you have already read many of the comments here, you wold go for the sensible option and save your money. Hosting a website with your own domain name is very cheap these days. All other services you will get from WA is available totally free if you bother to look for it.

You can just register in Paypal.com using your email address and then link your bank account with PayPal about which you can ask with PayPal support team. You can find the contact details of PayPal support team by clicking "contact" on the bottom of the PayPal page. You can also use VISA or Master credit cards directly to make payment in Wealthy Affiliate.

It is going to take you weeks and weeks of online training, loads of content creation and endless tinkering before you’ll have a legitimate web presence. You may think your website is great and you’ll be proud of the fact that you did it yourself, but I’m telling you…to build a competitive and professional web presence requires a great deal of experience and/or resources.
The support in there is really hit and miss, which can be a bummer, as the quality of response you receive can vary greatly depending upon who replies, and it’s seldom you’ll get much from either of the head muckity mucks. They profess to be active in the community chat, but often times it’s a lot of “hey, great job…keep up the good work and you’ll be making money in no time” kind of fluff. Be prepared to do some Googling when you have a question.
I achieved this because I’m an old hand, yet still my web pages and posts weren’t on the first page of Google. No problem with Bing and Yahoo, though. But Google, however, is where we need to be on page 1 of the SERPs under targeted keywords to get anywhere. WA teaches us to target ‘low hanging fruit’ keywords. In other words, to be bottom feeders. Talk about scraping the barrel!

In this type, orders are received from customers on the telephone as a result of ads on television or radio etc. There are many customers who admire the unsolicited telemarketing, but most of them feels disturbance by receiving such unsolicited sales messages on the telephone. Therefore, certain legislation is being made for the protection of people from this unsolicited telemarketing during specific hours of the day.
Wealthy Affiliate is a good service if you’re the type of person who knows next to nothing about IM and wants a quick blueprint for how it works. There is better information out there, for sure, but what WA does well is aggregate that info and provide a very easy to follow, go-at-your-own-pace method for getting you up and running. I went through their first 2 courses in an effort to rate the quality and accuracy of the lessons they give you ad they’re really not bad. There were things I think which could have been done a little better, but all in all, I feel they provide a good primer for IM and getting started with WP.
For me I would choose a program with Recurring commission. You can build a real passive income. Its the best way to go! One suggestion is contact companies who sell services and ask if you can sell their service for them. Sometimes popular affiliate programs like these have just way too many people trying to sell their service. I personally went to sitecare.ca and asked them if I could sell their service and I couldn’t be happier! So find a service you believe in and go for it!
I have found out that even when you actually leave Wealthy affiliate your account is never erased. Unlike other hosting companies when you cancel your subscription with them you are erased from the system. For some reason W A wants to show that it never actually loses members, but gives the impression that it is continually growing in membership. I can only assume that the majority of the members that are actually active are the hard core long time followers, and a large proportion of the membership is empty unused accounts that never get erased. At present W A boasts over 1.4 million members but what is the real membership number?

I joined Wealthy Affiliates about 5 weeks ago after doing a lot of research into many different affiliate programs. So far I've found everything that WA says it offers is 100 percent accurate. The training first class and the support from the community is excellent. In just 5 weeks I've got my own website up and running and made a few friends along the way. I'm thinking of doing the boot camp when I finish all the training in my current module.
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.

In short, both the affiliate marketer and the merchant will benefit in this program as the merchant will sell more goods and the affiliate marketer will get a commission for every product bought through his/her website.  Many affiliate marketers earn a nice monthly income from selling other peoples’ products!  Later, YOU TOO could be producing your very own products and collaborating with one of the top 10 affiliate programs below to enlist an army of bloggers and website owners to help you become financially free.
There are probably hundreds of these blogs floating around, and some of them rank quite well. I guess one could give WA props for teaching some decent SEO techniques, but that seems to be about it. I find the “bait and switch” review tactic particularly nauseating. It’s quite obvious that most of these negative reviews are nothing more than “cookie cutter” posts, and that the “reviewer” hasn’t even personally gone through the product they are bashing. Anybody that writes reviews about products they don’t have themselves and know nothing about is a fraud as far as I’m concerned.
You are saying $47 is expensive for Asian Countries. Now you know that we are also from Asian country and according to us, more than 65% Asian people can arrange $47 per month if they compromise any of their luxury habit such as going to expensive restaurant, drinking in bar, buying expensive wines, buying cigarettes, buying expensive cloths than average ones, spoiling child by buying expensive toys more than needed, buying accessary like expensive mobiles only to show instead of real using it etc. We are not saying poor people can afford it. But, the middle class Asian People who can afford laptops, mobiles and internet, those can sure manage $47 investment per month for their future income. That is also only for around 5-6 months because after that they will start to earn more than $47 per month.
One thing I don’t like is that Wealthy Affiliate mainly focuses on beginner to intermediate trainings. While this makes sense as the vast majority of Wealthy Affiliate members are brand new to the industry, I would also love to see some more advanced training provided for those of us with a decade of experience in the industry. Sometimes even the pros like to be challenged!
Eventbrite is an efficient, easy-to-use tool tons of marketers rely on not only to manage the logistics (like ticketing) of events but also to promote their events. Eventbrite lets you create an event landing page and allows you to set up your ticketing and payment for the event all within the same platform. The best part? Eventbrite is always free if you're hosting a free event!
Why do you want to get into affiliate marketing? Is it solely to make money? Do you have a desire (or already possess the skills required) to build a website that people will want to visit, learn from, purchase from, etc? Are you willing to build the best website imaginable for your chosen vertical? What skills can you contribute and do you have any leverage points that could make you competitive, e.g., writing, web design, seo, video creation, free time, and/or a strong desire to learn and work hard?
If you’ve upgraded to paid, I would request a refund asap. What you’ll find is a community full of aspiring entrepreneurs who are new to internet marketing & website administration – all of whom will be very enthusiastic for about 30-90 days, then never to be heard from again. I could argue that WA’s business model could be called downright predatory given the way they sell this bill of goods.

Promoting WA is a tired and oversaturated niche. They have funneled users into this niche to further their own SEO and to turn their customers into their marketing team, but I believe WA’s best days are far behind them. The lessons they provide are alright, but the tools they give you to work with are pretty bad. For example, there is no way you can use their hosting platform and WordPress installer to set up a successful site. There may be sites which are doing well on their platform, but they were built 6-8 years ago and are well indexed by now. Removing this from the equation significantly lessens the value of their membership.

- If I start earning on wealthy affiliate how do I do my withdrawals since I will still need to use PayPal and PayPal don't allow Nigerians to withdraw from there PayPal account and more so even if PayPal allow withdrawal for Nigerians wealthy affiliate might have a way of tracking who doing the withdrawals and the country he is withdrawing from. Seem to be in a fix right now. Pls apart from chris farrell are there trustworthy and cost-effective site for affiliate mentorship.
I only ever used Wayback Machine to download and copy odd files and photos that I no longer have. I’m not sure if you can copy/download the whole site but maybe possible with something like HTTrack. In any case, I think you would be better off just saving the stuff that you no longer have and build an updated version of the site on a new server. It shouldn’t take long unless you have hundreds of pages.
If you can provide 3 to 5 hour per day, then within 2 months you can learn every lessons of Wealthy Affiliate. After that you can discontinue your membership. While doing so, you can change the hosting of your website to any other hosting provider from Wealthy Affiliate. So, if you change the hosting of your website which you will create in Wealthy Affiliate by following lessons, you will not have any problem. As we have described to "Parvez" just above of this comment, Wealthy Affiliate will teach you every professional skills of online work industry such as making money from your own website by creating it in your own subject of interest, making tons of referrals in any online work companies, learning skills to earn from Amazon, eBay, Google Adsense etc. After you learn these all, it is only necessary to continue Wealthy Affiliate membership for hosting of your website which member of Wealthy Affiliate will get for free of cost. But, if you want to discontinue your membership, then you can change the hosting of your website from WA to any other hosting provider and simply discontinue your membership WA.
I joined at the beginning of WA started. then, it promoted as today a free platform, (also has a premium subscription which has more features). After a long time, they started to ban countries one after another. as you mention that those countries are cheating and haking their platform, It is the most laughable excuse. WA is a business, and they give the free account so that in future those people will become paid members. but they find out, members of those poor countries will never become a paid member. So the claim that those countries are cheaters and hackers. It is a dishonest move of them.
Ray, As Malcolm pointed out, WordPress hosting simply means the servers have been optimized for the platform. WordPress can require a little extra care to improve its security and performance, but most any shared hosting plan can accommodate it. If I were to recommend one budget host it would be SiteGround. You can set up a few installs on one of their basic plans and support is quite good. If you’re serious and willing to spend a bit more, Flywheel is a fantastic option from a performance, security and support standpoint, but you’d be limited to one site. My 2 cents.
I tried the WA free trial a couple of years ago and left quite unimpressed. I was particularly disgusted at the “negative review blog” and product bashing tactic that I see being recommended there. In other words, they want you to write negative reviews and trash every single product in the “Internet Marketing/Make Money Online/Biz Opp” niche and then subtly recommend Wealthy Affiliate towards the end of the review post.

With some of the more popular social media planes no longer favoring affiliate links...I needed a website to house my affiliate program. Also, the help to know how to manage it as well.  Turns out they were giving 2 free (hosted) siterubix websites which was exactly what I needed.  I can see how this will work for my other things I like to do own my own, like promoting my poetry and crafts.
You can become an affiliate eBay within a few clicks of your mouse. You just need to scroll down to the bottom of the eBay home page and find the affiliates link. Click to the link and you will be redirected to fill out the application. One great thing about eBay is that you can either decide to sell new products or items that you no longer use another trick that can help merchants is to buy items at a lower price then resell them at a higher price. The affiliate marketers also benefits in a number of ways. First you can earn money by just persuading people to register with eBay or refer them to purchase items on this site.

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.
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.

Sound advice indeed Craig. Not sure if you or anyone else has mentioned all the content added by member’s of WA to their blogs all goes towards higher ranking in Google for the WA website. Pick any example of text from any blog, search in Google and guess which site is at the top! More potential clients for WA. I signed up with them several months ago and have remained a free member. After many attempts to get me to go premium they extended the discount offer for the first month indefinitely. I still receive many email notifications from them containing info about new blog posts by their member’s. Seems most of them are dedicated to religion so not really surprising that they keep plodding on with no success. They already have the “faith” mentality.
I am a Nigerian and live in Nigeria and I want to join Wealthy Affiliate like seriously. I understand my country has been banned from WA. What I don't understand is how other sites like MMM is thriving in Nigeria and it has not been banned but yours was. I have read about Chris Farrell but I still prefer WA. Can somebody living outside Nigeria register me, and if they do, will it affect me here in Nigeria or not. Secondly, will I be able to operate my account from here in Nigeria?
One thing I didn’t like is that they give no guidance as to what constitutes a good niche. They imply, if they don’t say it outright, that you can make money out of any niche, you just have to choose one you’re passionate about and money will necessarily follow. I wholeheartedly disagree. Let’s take an example. If I’m passionate about, say, jigsaw puzzles, does that make them a good niche? Sure, there are such products sold on the net and probably you can earn commissions from them, but 1) this is the sort of things people will more likely buy at brick and mortar stores, 2) most of them are not expensive enough to make significant commissions from them, and 3) most importantly, if, as they say, you must first give value and help people, how can you write tens of posts that will “help” people about jigsaw puzzles? I for one would run out of ideas before having used all fingers of one hand. And that’s also why I disagree with their suggestion to select very narrow niches. One can only write so much about so little.
Hi Marcus, I was aware that your write access had been revoked and believed that you had let your membership run its course and cancelled its renewal. My apologies. What a shame that the work and effort that you put in has dwindled down to two remaining members. I can say that I have read your WA blogs with great interest which is one of the few good things that came out of my membership along with a handful of friends that I made along the way. Much success to you in your new pursuits.
3. Nope, never. Although Wealthy Affiliate provides separate lessons to promote Wealthy Affiliate as well as other online work companies, but also the main focus of Wealthy Affiliate mainstream lessons are to make a website in your own subject of interest and make money from that and also from reputed companies like eBay, Amazon and Google Adsense.
For example, graduates of Princeton University might be sent an email announcing a new cashmere sweater now available for sale with the school’s logo on it. Only students, graduates, and their parents are likely to be interested in owning such a piece of clothing, so by limiting who receives the announcement, the manufacturer saves money on distribution costs and increases the odds of reaching people who might make a purchase.
