One of the main challenges that comes with direct marketing is overcoming the image of junk or spam mail/email, which can result in ineffective and costly campaigns. In order to minimize frustration, companies can use opt-out lists or utilize a preference list that allows customers to have more control over what they receive in the mail. Another solution is creating a targeted campaign with an accurate database, which also helps reduce advertising budget waste.

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.
These days, I think the hardest part of the SEO formula exists in the more technical aspects, i.e., good coding practices, site speed, site architecture, etc. Provided you have the desire and ability to write quality content, your time and money is better spent on learning the more technical nuances of SEO, which is why I recommend something like Treehouse over WA.

Hello, I'm a Nigerian and it's quite disheartening and painful that those living in Nigeria have been completely knocked out from both the starter and premium membership of WEALTHY AFFILIATE due to frauding,scamming,spamming and the rest. Only Nigeria!!!- Out of the whole countries in the world!!. I'm here to say that we all are not Scammers etc but the bad eggs are going online tarnishing the image of this GREAT country. I just pray that the WEALTHY AFFILIATE team will find a better way of limiting scam relates issues by Nigerians and allowing us back into the system.
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.
Writing blog posts is especially effective for providing different opportunities to land on page one of search engines -- for instance, maybe your eyeglass store’s website is on page three of Google for “eyeglasses,” but your “Best Sunglasses of 2018” blog post is on page one, pulling in an impressive amount of traffic (over time, that blog post could also boost your overall website to page one).

1. ShareASale has been in business for over 19 years, exclusively as an affiliate marketing network. Their technology receives accolades for speed, efficiency and accuracy and their reputation as a fair and honest business is well known within the industry. They provide affiliate programs in a wide variety of vertical markets and offer superior customer service across the board.

Companies often use email marketing to re-engage past customers, but a “Where’d You Go? Want To Buy This?” message can come across as aggressive, and you want to be careful with your wording to cultivate a long-term email subscriber. This is why JetBlue’s one year re-engagement email works so well -- it uses humor to convey a sense of friendliness and fun, while simultaneously reminding an old email subscriber they might want to check out some of JetBlue’s new flight deals.


After you find an affiliate network with merchants that match your niche, the next step is to make sure you can earn high commissions from your sales. Remember, average affiliate commissions (depending on vertical) range from 5-30%. When you scan the list of merchants, do some math on potential earnings and product prices so that you maximize your revenue.

 First and foremost, I found this while doing research on these on line work from home business. I am just kind of put off with your review because honestly they way you described your actions and attitude to the company in general, I would have reacted in much the same way but I would not have been as nice about it. Let's face it....you were rude. You know what they say, "you get what you give. I don't think anyone out there who has out the time and effort into creating such a training program would be okay with any one skipping ahead to what they think they need. You came off like a know it all and nobody likes that. So in my opinion, you tried something, it didn't work so, you didn't get your way and so basically this is your rendition of throwing a tantrum...grow up!!!!
Wealthy Affiliate (WA) is not just about making affiliates. The affiliate program of WA is not the main part of the program, that is just a sidekick. Instead of trying to make tons of referrals in WA, try to focus on learning the lessons provided by WA so that you can learn to create your own website in your own subject of interest and make money from that by applying with affiliate programs like Amazon or with advertisement networks like Google AdSense and so on.
On MunchEye you can take a peak at the JV pages for these products, and on those pages they often show what the upsell funnel looks like. Some of them are utterly ridiculous, like you pay £4.99 for the front end product but there are £500 worth of upsells. And this is how affiliates are able to make so much money from these launches, because people get tricked into all these upsells.

Well if you can travel out of Nigeria, then that would be the best option because once you join WA from another country, then after that even you can log in and work from Nigeria without any problem. It is only banned to registered from Nigeria. Actually, many people from Nigeria has already joined WA by asking their friends and families outside the country to help them to join WA.


Some of the harshest criticism of direct customer marketing involves the online space. People who engage in online shopping or even just casual web browsing do not usually like the idea that their movements are being tracked by companies hoping to sell them specific goods or services. Many privacy experts and advocacy groups have tried to lobby for rules against aggressive online tracking in order to preserve personal privacy.

We will not recommend anyone to invest or work with adpackpro-international.com at the moment because first of all it is a new company and secondly there were lots of similar kinds of programs which have already failed and shutdown because it is hard for revenue share sites to sustain for long run unless they can make good sales. So, we never suggest anyone to work in revenue sharing sites because these kind of sites are very risky.
Pretty awesome! Wealthy Affiliate sounds almost to good to be true. Everyone out there, scam or not (which is almost impossible to know off the bat), is asking for quite some money to provide you with training to make money online. WA not offers the most complete training but you can also host up to 50 sites with the fee you pay. I think it's definitely worth a look and I have begun my free training. From what I have seen up to now, I will become Premium very soon. I definitely like what's here. Thanks for writing this post. I (and many others) appreciate it!
However, if you're like the hundreds of millions of other individuals that are looking to become the next David Sharpe, there are some steps that you need to take. In my call with this renowned online marketer, I dove deep the a conversation that was submerged in the field of internet marketing, and worked to really understand what it takes to be top earner. We're not just talking about making a few hundred or thousand dollars to squeak by here; we're talking about building an automated cash machine. It's not easy by any means.
- 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.
The next step? How will you communicate with people. Sharpe says that you need to decide on this early on. Will you blog? Will you use social media? Will you build a list by working with solo ad providers? Will you place paid advertisements? What will you do and how will you do it? What you must realize here is that you have to get really good at copy writing. The better you get at copy writing, the more success you'll find as an internet marketer.

Sure and 100% you can view those videos as many times as you like. They have provided lessons step by step, but when you don't understand any of those lessons or want to go back to previous lessons, you can switch over and repeat the courses as many times as you like. More than that, they also provide live training every week and if you miss those live training, then also you can see those recorded version anytime you want, as many times as you want. So, that is completely flexible. More than that, if you join Wealthy Affiliate by clicking the link as provided in our Wealthy Affiliate review as above, then we will be your sponsor to help and guide you as long as you need inside the Wealthy Affiliate. So, you don't have to be worried.
From Wealthy Affiliate you will not only learn to make money by selling your own stuff but will also learn to make money by selling the products of third parties like Amazon, eBay and so on and earn commission on each sale. So, if you sell the products of Amazon, eBay and so on, you don't have to worry about shipment because everything is handled by those companies. But, if you want to sell your own products, then about the shipment from your country, you have to ask the concerned department in your country. From WA you will also learn to make money without selling anything or recruiting anyone, just from the advertisement services like Google AdSense, Media.net and so on. So, there are many ways to earn money online which you will learn by following the WealthyAffiliate lessons.
It is more good to create your own niche website and promote that thing in which you are expert or simply make a website in your own subject of interest and learn to drive traffic and just earn from the advertisements within your website without selling anything or recruiting anyone. However, still you can take some benefit by promoting WA as well. But we more prefer you to make your own niche website by following WA lessons in order to earn good income.
Even as a complete website-building newbie, I find the trainings are slow and repetitive regarding basic things, but then rush over important elements, requiring me to pause and repeat over and over and still not comprehend them. I feel completely in the dark about what I’ve built so far, and yet am being rushed on to learn new topics. I am not feeling at all knowledgeable or confident in what I have done up to this point.
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.
Hey Malcolm, Why don’t you ask this, ” I an considering going premium and was told if I wanted to leave wa I would have 30 days after cancelling to move my website but I have found several people online who say they cancelled and wa immediately blocked their access to download plugins necessary to move their site. These people said they had to pay for a month of premium to actually get access to move their sites and their emails to kyle and carson were ignored. What is the exact policy on this?”
I see a few complaints here and I actually did the same sort of research before joining Wealthy Affiliate.  I even remember reading a report like this.   What I did find is that it was easy to make a decision on whether or not to try it after reading mostly positive reviews and reading a few negative reviews on here from what appears to be competitors and those that maybe had a bad experience for one reason or another.  I see some said their write access was cut off and I think that can happen if you get reported for spamming others within the community.  There is no spam allowed at WA which is nice.
When you join WA, you can find video lessons step by step, by following that you can learn lots of expert business skills, such as you can make website in your own subject of interest inside WA and learn the skills to make money from that website, you can learn the skills to earn without selling anything, recruiting anyone such as from the services like Google Adsense, you can learn the skills to earn from reputed companies like eBay, Amazon, etc., you can learn the skills to make referrals in any online work companies, you can also make money within Wealthy Affiliate itself by following its Affiliate Bootcamp courses and so on.
Speaking about writing content, It does some days get hard to hold back from writing on my site, and that’s mainly due to the time and hours I built up to the point where it almost feels in a way “natural”. And everytime I tell myself to just do it, I have to remind myself it’s going to bring me right back around to where I started. Right now, I’m actually trying out an affiliate program with Fueledleads. I want to see how far I can get with them. Some passive income is better than no passive income.
Sorry I wasn’t clear I forgot I was addressing the very reason the gene pool needs a lifeguard. You must be hurting yourself by overthinking things. I will put you out of your misery. My reasoning for what I said is that I just don’t like you. Simple as that. I think you are very, very stupid. That’s all there is to it. The fact that you posted my comment has nothing to do with guts. It will very likely bring you a little attention which is the only reason you’ve published it. And Malcolm, you sir, are an oxygen thief! If laughter is the best medicine your face must be curing the world! I love what you’ve done with your hair. How did you get it to grow from your nostrils like that? Sorry, I must be “displaying my lack of intelligence” but then, how else would you understand me?
I know what you mean. Regularly writing lots of content and getting not much in return, it’s a hard road to go down. And the thing is, if you are able to write lots of content and you want to earn money doing it, you can join Textbroker and get paid per article. I know it’s not residual income, but it gives you a better return on your time up front.
Wealthy Affiliate (WA) is not just about making affiliates. The affiliate program of WA is not the main part of the program, that is just a sidekick. Instead of trying to make tons of referrals in WA, try to focus on learning the lessons provided by WA so that you can learn to create your own website in your own subject of interest and make money from that by applying with affiliate programs like Amazon or with advertisement networks like Google AdSense and so on.
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.

Hi Kathy, I thought to read this article first before going to premium and I thought that they will help all their members when they go premium but having read all your comments here I’ve changed my mind already. So sad that you haven’t got back to your followers, that’s must have been very upsetting for you when all you’re hard work just went down to nothing.

When neophytes in the area of website development look for help, they need WA or something very close. The saying goes, how do you eat an elephant? … the answer “one bite at a time”. WA feeds the “website-development-elephant” one bite at a time. I am, by nature, critical. I listen carefully and read carefully not only what is being said but also what is not being said. Do they promote their system, of course, why wouldn’t they?
So be wary. Ensure that you learn from the pros and don't get sucked into every offer that you see. Follow the reputable people online. It's easy to distinguish those that fill you with hype and those that are actually out there for your benefit. Look to add value along the way and you'll succeed. You might find it frustrating at the outset. Everyone does. But massive amounts of income await those that stick it out and see things through.

Yes, Craig, and it’s often a case of the blind leading the blind. Often the most active and most helpful members on WA are quite new, and they get enthusiastic about interacting with other members and all helping each other out. So you get a bunch of enthusiastic newbies all giving each other advice even though they don’t really know what they’re talking about.
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.
