I canceled my Premium Membership now after 1 year. Today I wanted to sign in as a free member, but they give me no access. Only 2 Websites which I have paid for, I can transfer this in the next 30 days… But unfortunately, I will get the EPP Code for 1 website on my email address which is a host on WA. I wrote now Kyle and hope that he will send me the code or give me 1-day access to my Email Hosts there. That is very strange what they do. But I think I have to subscribe for 1 Month to get this 🙁

Although they have a specific skill-set based on proven direct marketing techniques, directed by the goal of motivating prospects to take a specific action[22], they also require a general and branding advertising focus on making current and potential customers feel a certain way about the product or service, and need the creativity shown in work such as "Don't treat your puppy like a dog" (Ralston Purina dog food)[23] or the "Pick-UPS" portion of 1-800-PICKUPS.


Thanks for making an honest review, and one that I can full out respect. I’m a current member of WA, and I’ll be honest right from the start, it takes a TON of work. And I don’t mean the type of work that’s included in Making commissions, I mean all the amount of hours to dedicate to your blog, content, sharing it via social media, getting commented, and all the SEO elements. And that’s just the thing, you’re putting all the hard work in, pumping out sometimes 3 articles per week that are quality/quantity on what you know and are very well experienced with to not make a dollar amount in return. Am I supposed to get a couple dollars once every 6 months lol, like cmon right? Some people work at a different rate, and I’m one who’s busted my butt off for the last 9 1/2 months, churning out content with only analytics, small amount of Traffic to show for. I’m seeing the progress in all the “other ways” like getting to page 1 of bing and yahoo for search phrases and writing types of targeted post to attract buyers, and that it’s not about the money which I’m 100% on board, I’m here to help and make money second.

thank you for this article. I am a free member trying to attract traffic. my site is not indexing, and it seems I have to be a premium member to do the one thing or the major thing to get traffic (i’m completely new to this, so I guess indexing is the only way to get traffic/come up on a google search). I wish I had read your article sooner. I’ve written a whole article about my product. i’m passionate about healthy living and have been wanting the opportunity to share what I know and encourage others to use healthier products. now I’ve done all the work and can’t even get it to show up on a search engine!!!! what a waste!

If you decide to go into affiliate marketing, understand that you will need a lot of very targeted traffic if you want to make any real money. Those affiliate offers also need to provide a high commission amount to you on each sale. You also need to ensure that the returns or chargebacks for those products or services are low. The last thing you want to do is to sell a product or service that provides very little value and gets returned often.

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!
1. Yep, as a premium member, you create your own 25 websites through a single membership, but that only covers the hosting and SSL and other securities for your websites as well as live training per week to keep you upto date to grow your web business according to the market changes, but need to pay $10- $15 per year fee for each domain additionally.
Great review or anti-review ??? Wish I had read this article a few months ago . I parted ways with WA around a month ago . I have been out here still pursuing my interest and it’s pretty FREAKIN rough . Just this afternoon i found myself engaged in a three hour batitle royal with Jetpack , WordPress , and the God that is Google over one post . Wealthy Affiliate is like that way cool app you’ve been wanting and the download is freeee , it’s just that , We’ll …. you need $575.00 in memberships , plug-ins and add-ons to make the damn thing work . Plus , they stole my domain !!! I been out here on my own for a month . I’ve pulled in $11 bucks . So yeah , you could say I’m Ballin. UP YOURS KYLE & CARSON !!!!!!!!!

As the years passed they moved more towards the blogging model and the concept that anyone can build a business by blogging about whatever they are most interested in. This approach is far more long-winded and very hit-and-miss in terms of how likely people are to succeed. Sure, some people will eventually find great success if their chosen topic happens to be a profitable niche and they are good at writing and stick it out for long enough. For many others it will not go beyond being a hobby site that pays a bit of spare change. No need to sign up to Wealthy Affiliate to do that. Just throw up a free blog at Blogspot.com, write about what you’re interested in, and throw in some affiliate links here and there. It’s not rocket science, folks.

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. You can click the image for a larger view.
I’ve been part of WA off and on for a few years. Every time I think about leaving the one thing that keeps me there is Jaaxy. They now offer a “lite” version of Jaaxy as part of the membership. (not the trial 30 searches but a version you can use every month as much as you like) I don’t know how else I would find good keywords (besides google itself which doesn’t give numbers). If I were to pay for hosting AND Jaaxy outside of WA it would cost me more than the membership for WA. Any suggestions?
If you have skills and are a website developer, graphic designer, professional writer or something like that then you may not need basic instructions and need to learn as you go but for the rest of us, having a plan and working consistently and always learning is what wealthy affiliate can offer and my investment is worth every cent. I am saving $300 a year on hosting on just one website (for my offline business) I have moved from a local hosting company to wealthy affiliate… I make $300 a year without doing a darn thing…
Wealthy Affiliate is definitely not a scam. Instead, Wealthy Affiliate is number one online work company continuously from 2009 in which you will not only earn, but will also learn to earn from other big companies like Google AdSense, eBay, Amazon, JVZoo, Jimdo etc. as well as from your own website. It is all about training plus the best platform to make money online. Wealthy Affilaite provides you the platform to earn money from its Affiliate Bootcamp section and also teaches you everything about online business and work and make you an expert in any online works and businesses that you are doing or you want to do in future.
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.
Needless to say, I was blown away pretty quickly. Even by signing up for their free membership option, it was very apparent that Wealthy Affiliate does things differently. The community, recorded training, live ongoing weekly training sessions, live chat and support options, and business-like approach for beginners to pros alike really blew my mind.
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.

Hi Tommy. I vet the programs listed on my site and eliminate the ones that people make complaints about. But its important for you to also use your due diligence when you choose a program. Google the name of the company followed by queries such as “complaints” and “fraud” and “scam” to see if people are making accusations. You can also contact their affiliate manager directly to ask questions. If you can’t locate an affiliate manager that is definitely a red flag. Finally, diversify into a few different companies so you can compare them. Hope this helps. Sincerely – Bill
Understand that whatever you're going to do, you'll need traffic. If you don't have any money at the outset, your hands will be tied no matter what anyone tells you. The truth is that you need to drive traffic to your offers if you want them to convert. These are what we call landing pages or squeeze pages. This is where you're coming into contact with the customers, either for the first time or after they get to know you a little bit better.
Can you run a successful business by only using the free membership option at Wealthy Affiliate? Well, you can, but I wouldn’t recommend it. Instead, I recommend you sign up for the free Wealthy Affiliate membership as a way to try things out. Honestly, the free membership is set up to be a bit of a teaser to get you to sign up for premium eventually, but most of us expect that going in. What’s nice about it is you can judge for yourself, based on the free membership, whether it is worth it for you to sign up for premium. Ultimately, only you can decide if Wealthy Affiliate is high quality or not. You will get more than enough of an idea by signing up for their free membership option. On average, about 1 in every eight people upgrade to a premium membership.
But here’s the kicker… If you sign up using my affiliate link for Wealthy Affiliate, I will be notified and I will send you a welcome message. From that point on, you can contact me absolutely any time and I will help coach you through the process. If you ever feel overwhelmed or have questions you can’t find the answers to, I’m just a quick message away. I’m not only happy to return the favor for you clicking on my affiliate link, but this business is my passion, and I absolutely love watching people’s businesses grow. So, if you are looking for one more reason to join Wealthy Affiliate, use any of my Wealthy Affiliate links before you sign up and you’ll get free coaching from me personally.
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).

Where consumers have indicated the wish not to receive direct marketing communications by signing on to a preference service, or in any other way, this should be respected. Marketers who are communicating with consumers internationally should, where possible ensure that they avail themselves of the appropriate preference service in the markets to which they are addressing their communications and respect consumers' wishes not to receive such communications (see also General Provisions, article 19, data protection and privacy.[50] Where a system exists, enabling consumers to indicate a wish not to receive unaddressed mail (e.g. mailbox stickers), this should be respected.

If there is some error within your website, WA SiteRubix support team will fix it within a day.

But, I think the return on your investment has a lot to do with each individual. It takes some people 6 months to earn, some a year and some 2 or more years. There are many variables that can come into play as to why a person is not seeing any earnings and they all can’t to put on the shoulders of WA. WA provides what you need to get the business started, but the effort one puts into to getting a business where it needs to be must come from the individual. Like they say, “You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink!”


After researching online and trying many different products which include: Chris Farrell Membership, Affilorama and Bring the Fresh I am finding Wealthy Affiliate to be the most complete program so far. The part which I love the most is there are no up-sells and everything is transparent. Basically it's a workshop for anyone who wants to craft their perfect solid online business.

Hey Ahmed, great value share, I must admit. Your explanation on the affiliate program connected to Six Figure Mentors was fascinating, but since you’re a fairly direct source, please explain to me how promoting their products works. I am aware that their products are qualified and life-altering(which makes it so much more interesting to promote) and also aware that you suggested there are financial obligations. I’ve already committed thousands to AWOL(I’m 17 by the way) and I believe in quality products as such to promote. Do I need to purchase SFM training eventually? I am willing to do so, in… Read more »
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…
Trello is a great project management tool for small teams and individuals. With it's Kanban-style setup and fun user interface, Trello lets you set up to-do lists and tag individual cards with due dates, members, labels, and more. You can attach files, links, images, and more to your cards and easily get a full-view of any project that you're working on. At HubSpot, we use Trello daily to manage our team campaigns and individual to-do lists. Want an example of how we do this? Check out our guide to managing marketing campaigns in Trello.
I think you might of misunderstood me I am not looking to promote my page, it is just a hobby really that grew quickly due to the need. I do this while I finish my degree in HR. I am looking to make money off of posting other people’s things on my page. Not to boost my page I have about 6k active users. I’m looking to sign up to affiliate programs.

The list of recommended tools below is sorted into different sections so you can get a better sense of what tools are available for different functions of the job. At the end, you'll see the whole list of 61 tools that you can skim and bookmark for later. Nearly 50 of them are free marketing tools, which means the product offers either a free version with limited resources or a select group of tools inside the product that are yours to use at no charge.
Wealthy Affiliate provides lessons in both video and text format. In order to take video lessons, you must have internet connection. But, you can take those video lessons as many times, repeatedly as per your need. Not only those lessons, but if you join Wealthy Affiliate by clicking the link as above within our review, then we will be your sponsor and we can guide you step by step so that if you ever get confused anywhere in those lessons, you can just get help from us.
There are SO MANY success stories on Wealthy Affiliate, these are just some of the ones I found. One thing you’ll notice is that most of these success stories are NOT making money by promoting Wealthy Affiliate. They are promoting an array of other products and services. Wealthy Affiliate teaches you how to promote nearly any product or service in nearly any industry. That’s the beauty of it. Wealthy Affiliate does offer a fantastic affiliate program (which I am a part of), but there are so many other things you can promote once you go through the training.

Affiliate Network Reputation. Search for affiliate marketing forums and review sites to find out what other people are saying about the networks you’re interested in. Are they reliable? Do they always pay on time? Do they have a responsive customer service team to help you when you have questions or problems? What is their refund rate? Will you have an individual affiliate manager dedicated to your success?
As you may know, you can get a free or Basic account. You can also opt for Premium access which costs $49 a month. There are perks to joining with Premium access because you can get much more from the program in terms of training and opportunity. For example, with the $49 a month subscription you get 50 websites rather than just two. You also get more training and the one-on-one coaching is unlimited.
WA is a bull shit program and I totally agreed with crajun.com. Most people are misled with WA pitch as Starter to make a crappy website in 30 seconds of going thru 10 lessons of training level # 1…. Then you have to buy the premium membership to have access to the lessons in training level 2 to continue in finishing your crappy website without any affiliate links added to it… to fill it with affiliate links from Amazon, Nike, Adidas… etc, you have to sign up for their affiliate programs, then wait and see if you get approved and most likely you will not get approved because your website has no traffic and has no links to your what they call a Niche. Because your niche is based on affiliate links… I am so glad I did not go for the premium…. it’s a waste of time and money….

One of the other significant benefits of direct marketing is that it enables promoting products or services that might not be known to consumers. Products or service with a sound value proposition, matched with an attractive offer, supported with effective communication, delivered through a suitable direct marketing channel and targeting the relevant customer segment can result in a very effective cost of acquisition. Relative to other channels of distribution (say retailing) direct marketing as a practice principally relies on the proposition, offer, communication, choice of channel and the target customer and so less dependent on the brand strength. Despite the proven ability of direct marketing to generate measurable results, most companies continue to use general or branding advertising to market their products or services.
