I then stumbled across WA, and thought hey maybe I’ll do this. But it seems to me that it might be better simply just to set up a wordpress blog and go from there. If I do want to start IM I can learn SEO all over the net. I saw that on WA you have to be a premium member to get comments on your wordpress sites however I am very sure if I set up my own WP blog I can get a plugin of some sort to have comments.
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!
In 1872, Ward produced the first mail-order catalog for his Montgomery Ward mail order business. By buying goods and then reselling them directly to customers, Ward was consequently removing the middlemen at the general store and, to the benefit of the customer, drastically lowering the prices.[16] The Direct Mail Advertising Association, predecessor of the present-day Direct Marketing Association, was first established in 1917.[17] Third class bulk mail postage rates were established in 1928.[18]
Wealthy Affiliate is online from 2005 with millions of members and no one has faced such credit card charging problem until now. However, once you cancel the yearly membership, it will take 1 month to get your money back to the account. And even if you are facing the credit card charging problem, you can simply contact the support team of Wealthy Affiliate or the owners (Kyle or Carson) instead of complaining here. They will definitely help you to get back your money. They are a multi-millionaire company with lots of trusts, so they will not take your some hundreds. And when you cancel your membership, did you change your setting to "stop billing and cancel my membership" within your account settings or not? If you haven't done that, then you must do that in order to stop billing. So, instead of complaining here, contact the support team of Wealthy Affiliate or the owner of Wealthy Affiliate (Kyle or Carson).
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.
Hey Jennifer, I don’t really know much about MOBE as I haven’t had personal experience myself but in terms of paying for a programs, i’ve had experience with the Six Figure Mentors. They teach people marketing and entrperneurial mindset stuff that I found invaluable. They have a paid tiered membership system that can be promoted on an affiliate basis. What sort of affiliate business are you looking to set up?

There’s also the fact that Wealthy Affiliate is not and never claims to be a get-rich-quick strategy. You will learn how to build a real, legitimate online business and one that can earn you some serious cash, but just like any other business, it is going to take a lot of time, effort, patience, and support along the way. If you have realistic expectations, are willing to learn from those who have succeeded before you, and you’re willing to put at least 6 months into your business before you see any profits at all, then Wealthy Affiliate is a good place for you.
Well written article, I have learned new affiliate networks, that I didn’t have knowledge about. Affiliate marketing is one of the best ways to make big money online. Many people try it, but give up when sales don’t come, in my opinion, achieving success in affiliate marketing requires you to choose the right networks to promote, and have patience. Simple advice should be not to try to promote everything you come across, do research and test to find out what works best. Thanks for sharing this great article.
For direct mail they attached with letters a blood bag simulating to be real (though of course it was fake), the design of email they sent was in the same line and the cover of the web was a picture with two doctors who carried the blood bag with copy above. Actually, they matched all season long in Touch Branding and it was a way to "hook" potential companies to be customers.
As of October 2018 almost 4.2 billion people were active internet users and 3.4 billion were social media users (Statista). China, India and the United States rank ahead all other countries in terms of internet users. This gives a marketer an unprecedented number of customers to reach with product and service offerings, available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The interactive nature of the internet facilitates immediate communication between businesses and consumers, allowing businesses to respond quickly to the needs of consumers and changes in the marketplace. "Everyone has the internet in their pocket all the time, and this changes everything for small businesses" (Cory Capoccia, Forbes).

This will LOCK your bank account wherein you A. Can’t pay them. B. Are prevented from accessing ANYONE to help as they REQUIRE YOU TO PAY TO USE CHAT AND REFUSE TO CONTACT YOU EVEN VUA EMAIL UNLESS YOU PAY C. Threaten then to delete you instead of helping you D. Cause your other charges and accounts to be threatened for non payment while u figure thus out / get a new card etc. So whatever you do, don’t think you can ever take a break from mainstream communication YOURSELF while dealing with them. You have to be on constant alert yourself so they don’t have to be.
There is a lot of stuff on wealthy affiliate wear they are just trying to get you to buy more wealthy affiliate stuff. I don’t like how they have new members offer feedback on other members websites when the people offering feedback might not have made a single dollar themselves. I will say one thing, the owners of wealthy affiliate are running a very intelligent scheme. And they are so deceitful. They are constantly saying stuff like build trust, and anytime anyone talks about building trust the way they do, I can tell they are really doing it to conceal a profit motive. They are also always saying to focus on helping people instead of just selling to people but even when you go through their entire premium training course they are constantly including plugs for you to buy more wealthy affiliate crap. The website is full of pathological optimists and the only reason it all sounds so good is that no one is allowed to point out everything that’s so messed up about it.
If you think the customer service of Wealthy Affiliate is terrible, then we want to know the name of some other companies from where you are getting much more fast response than from Wealthy Affiliate. May be you either don't know how to use the support system of Wealthy Affiliate or you simply hate Wealthy Affiliate, otherwise there is not any reason to say the support of Wealthy Affiliate is terrible when they provide various kinds of support, such as Live Chat support, 24/7 community support, direct messages to the owner of Wealthy Affiliate, SiteRubix support for technical issues, owners profile comment support, sponsor support and so on. However, it seems may be you only use the community support and find some rude persons there because in community support sometime you can find the members like you who doesn't have any relation with Wealthy Affiliate. We are with Wealthy Affiliate from 2014 and till now we have never seen any team of Wealth Affiliate including owners have ever made any rude comment to anyone.

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.

I also see that they are very heavy on people just re-adding for them (WA) and I see that most sites created by WA members are bland repeat-a-phones about personal health & well-being including of course working on your hobby and making money from it through ads for WA. and affiliate sales. My site was about recovering from smoking addictions through my own phone coaching (and knowledge of addictions), and after 3 months and no clients I passed out some real business cards and then cancelled my sub to WA and then discovered that I could not get back into WA even though I still have paid membership time left...and also discovered that even though the site will still show up for 30 more days, without being able to get into the administration area, I'm not sure I can even transfer the site to another host and domain name. I feel as if my intellectual property might be in the process of being stolen.


I have a paranoid idea, but as a newbie to this world of WA , I have a dark feeling that there’s no reason why WA could not simply read business ideas that are posted in their free membership sites and then copy any of the feasible ideas you’ve researched through their free ‘limited trial’ research tool for keywords. The owners thereby get vast free market research, and snap up any lucrative ideas, and you have no legal ownership of the free site content. Am I paranoid? Would love to get your take, or anyones’s take on this. I didn’t buy a domain, I have as yet not signed up, and have removed my content, – but have I just potentially given my business idea away?
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?
But, if you don't know anything about SEO and the ways to earn money from your website, then you need to take all lessons of Wealthy Affiliate, not only those 10 free lessons, for which you need to upgrade so that you can make website in your own subject of interest and learn the various ways to earn money form your own website, means by creating your own online business so that no one can scam you ever again and that is also in your own subject of interest. Not only that, you can learn every legit ways to make money online from those lessons such as from the companies like Google Adsense, eBay, Amazon and so on.
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.

You can read about it in the ripoff reports or on SBI site or in the public record. They lost the lawsuit and waiting for the judge to rule on damages. Probably a hefty award of cash to the damaged party and an order to remove all the fake reviews. Since training people write fake reviews bashing products and programs they never used is the gist of their marketing plan (just dirty) they will likely lose alot of members. SBI they had some actual studies done with interesting results that totally debunk WA claims. I think those are on the site
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.
Does The Network Offer Any Add-Ons? Add-ons include up-sells, cross-sells and enhancements that your customer can opt for that will allow you to make extra commissions on each sale. Add-ons are a very common practice in affiliate marketing. Add-ons are usually presented at the time of the initial sale. These up-sells add more bells and whistles to enhance the core product. Your customers are under no obligation to buy any of these add-on items, but when they do, you get paid more.    
For many companies and service providers, particularly those that are small or very nuanced, traditional forms of advertising — radio, newspapers, television, and the like — may not be the best use of promotional budgets. For example, a company that sells a men’s hair loss prevention product would have to find a radio station whose format appealed to older male listeners who might be experiencing this problem. There would be no guarantee that this group would be listening to that particular station at the exact time the company's ads were broadcast.
You sign up for FREE and never not once charge you a dime!! Unless you choose to upgrade that is your choice to do so! They never force or hassle money out of your pocket unlike other MLM companies online that try to make you scale up! Now that's SCAMMING ppl to not let them have the opportunity to have hands on access. WA they give you ALL ACCESS!! And people complaint about WA?? Are you kidding me!! I love Wealthy Affiliate and if some of you have issues about them them try to have myself and a million other followers and WA affiliates say anything negative... but that will suck because there is NOTHING NEGATIVE TO SAY ABOUT WEALTHY AFFILIATES. And as far as I know Kyle is NEVER rude!! Let's make that VERY CLEAR!!
In case of your wife, that happens because you use the same internet and device to register her account. In WA, one internet, one email address, one payment account and one device is allowed to open only one account unless you contact the owners of WA (Kyle or Carson) to help you to open two accounts from same internet (IP), device and so on. So, in that case either you have to contact Kyle or Carson or simply register your wife's account using different internet, different device, different payment processors and different email address.
Thank you very much. I signed up to a few here and I am very grateful to you for making all of this valuable information available – you have saved me time. I could not sign up to Shopify as it just kept on reloading page to SIGN IN and not create a new account – confusing. VigLink does not allow a new account sign up either.. Rakuten did not say if they charge to be apart of their affiliate prog and actually there is no sign up for that option. If you can help me with these three prog’s… Read more »

I set out to be one of the few that would try and promote WA in a unique way, but after a few months there I began to grow more disillusioned with the product and found that it would be harder to sell because I am not going to bullshit anyone. I think it’s a decent value as long as someone enters into their membership with realistic expectations and are not in a period of financial desperation. They do provide a pretty comprehensive nuts and bolts breakdown of how to do WordPress and basic IM practices, but I think anyone who is serious about IM will find that they will quickly outrgow WA within their first year.

If you join and quit Wealthy Affiliate after a month for some reason and if you don't want to lose your website which you have created within WA, then you can just transfer your that website from WA hosting to any other hosting. If you only want 1 month break, then you can request Kyle and Carson to keep your website live. However, if you only want to keep your work progress, but don't want to live your website anymore, then you can back up your website so that whenever you join WA again, you can just start your website from the place where you left using your back up files. So, like these, there are many ways to save your work even after you cancel the WA membership.
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.[40] 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.
