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?
Hi Craig, I’m just a beginner in affiliate marketing and your post make me think again about the all the process. Yeah, for a beginner, you always tempted by the amount of money another people already made and really wish to achieve a successful after one night. Nowadays, we are all enticed by “instantly money” and forget about it’s only a tip of the iceberg. It’s really a painful process, only trial-and-error will help me.
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.
ShareASale is another larger affiliate network that has more than 4000 merchants listed where a thousand of them are exclusive to ShareAsale.

For those new to this powerful online merchandising concept, affiliate programs work as intermediaries between the affiliate marketers who will sell products and services and the merchant who provides those products and services as well as the affiliates programs.  Merchants work with affiliates to help get their products or services to their consumers.
I’m thinking of starting a blog, but unfortunately my passion is to discuss different varieties and species of fruit (tropical and non tropical). And produce is different all over the world, and isn’t really something that can get advertising and affiliates (right?) And there aren’t any products I could advertise on that kind of blog, because it’s just fruit. So is Wealth Affiliate not even something that I could consider using? I’d appreciate your input. Thank you!
I have been following the video’s on Youtube involving Income school, and i am quite astonished at the information that the 2 founders have compiled and are freely showing. They are displaying some really good advice and facts, backed up by actual evidence that i think that anyone serious about learning internet marketing should have a look at. When you see what they have to offer i think you will be quite surprised. The best part about it is that there are 2 actual live persons that you can see and hear and not just a voice behind a microphone .

Wealthy Affiliate does not steal domains…lol! If you clearly went thru the training which you obviously did not and the fact you were only there a month, were you looking for a fast money making scheme by chance? If you were, you made the right choice of leaving. There are NO SHINY BUTTONS inside Wealthy Affiliate. You were told at the start of the training that having your an online business requires HARD WORK, PERSEVERANCE, and the ability to not just simply give up which you did.

Platforms like Upwork or Fiverr are completely different than Wealthy Affiliate. In Upwork or Fiverr, you work for others to complete their tasks. The content you write there will give you some income but a very little compared with your hard work. However, Upwork, Fiverr are also not bad at all, but you need to have lots of competition there with other members to earn a good income.
At starting you need to provide 2-3 hours per day at least for 3-4 months in order to learn and work as per the training within WA. Once you set up your website fully, then sure you can earn from your that website on regular basis even without doing anything. However, if you keep on adding contents/articles/pages/posts within your website, then you can keep on increasing your income which is unlimited process. So, it depends on you when to stop or let's say when you will be satisfied with your monthly income.
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?
Online marketing, also called digital marketing, is the process of using the web and internet-connected services to promote your business and website. There are a number of disciplines within online marketing. Some of these include social media, search engine marketing (SEM), search engine optimization (SEO), email marketing, online advertising and mobile advertising.

WA is offering a deal for $299/year. Since they offer keyword and SEO training (and you can get I think 25 websites as a premium member), doesn’t it make sense to use their platform for hosting? I’m a newbie, and planning to start writing content for affiliate marketing (I have no illusions) as well as start a website for a copy editing/proofreading biz. I work full time so I plan on spending the months needed to practice writing blog content and building a business website (yes, using their hosting, since the price is right). Why wouldn’t I host with them, given that they use WordPress? Thanks for your insight!
It’s really advisable to register any domain outside of wealthy affiliate and also ensure that you have a full backup of your site stored somewhere else in case of any problems. It seems that members can only use WordPress to build a website which I feel is a bit limited. There is a big world outside WordPress and they could teach so much more than just building a site with one platform. There may me a few making money from their sites at wa but would certainly be a small minority. Many claim to be doing very well but if you bother to really check them out, most are doing very little and have low traffic.

Lists can be obtained through public or commercial sources, and may represent all the people in a particular neighborhood, all the people who entered a contest drawing, all the people who opted in to a newsletter, a customer list from another business, etc. Such lists should not be used indiscriminately; instead, the data should be analyzed to create messages and offers that are likely to be relevant to these customers or prospects.

Rakuten Linkshare is one of the oldest affiliate partner networks that is gaining popularity very fast. To wade off competition as well as making it user-friendly, the platform come with some distinctive features. One of these features includes rotating different banner ads for specific products, making it easier to administer and optimize in the long run. Instead of having to select the ad, you would want to run on your blog manually; that will let multiple versions of ads rotate with a small piece of code.

I have a couple lessons to finish with the bootcamp, and what I’m thinking about doing if I even think about continuing to blog is create a site not around WA but to help others figure out how to make money online, wordpress, how to create a website, select a hosting platform like Hostgator which I had previous experience with before WA, clickfunnels and so forth. But yeah, it’s been real, and an eye opening experience. I’ll likely be transferring my domains back to Hostgator here.
Hi Amol, You can’t really expect to make it as an affiliate without a blog, e.g., content strategy. You don’t necessarily need to ‘blog’, but you would need to continually add new content – whether it be evergreen content, product pages with detailed descriptions, etc. WA basically attempts to show you how to manage a WordPress site, how to get it ranked and options for monetizing it.

ShareASale is another larger affiliate network that has more than 4000 merchants listed where a thousand of them are exclusive to ShareAsale. One of the features that may make you fall in love with this program is the ease of use. As a beginner either a seller or an affiliate marketer, this site is extremely easy to use.

Hi Jennifer, you could target people in the “get a better job” space. This is the prime market for your offer. There are plenty of high-authority blogs out there in this niche and if you can partner with some influencers, you can see some amazing results. That said, it’s not as easy a 123. Your affiliate offer needs to be amazing. Your website should be beautiful, and your need to have a strategy for reaching out to these people in your industry. You can’t just send them an email and expect them to sign up to your affiliate program.

Promoting WA is one of the most crowded and competitive niches one could hope to tackle, and yes, even if someone did manage to rise above the rest, it would likely take 12-18 months or more. And even then, you’d still be outranked by most of WA’s other website properties and social media profiles. BY promoting the WA Bootcamp so aggressively, WA is able to bolster its authority even further by facilitating so many inbound links coming from sites indexed for their keywords.
Direct marketing is a type of advertising campaign that seeks to bring an action in a selected group of consumers (such as an order, visit the store or the website of the mark or a request for information) in response a communication by the marketer. This communication can take many different formats, such as postal mail, telemarketing, point of sale ... One of the most interesting is the direct email marketing.
They just did the same thing to me! I spent lots of time building a site and decided to cancel my premium membership which was set to renew on 11/28/18. I emailed tech support and questioned people in their “live chat” and was told by both I would have 30 days after the renewal date to move my site. The problem is I cannot access it. I am working 14 hour days and had planned to ,move it yesterday on my only day off and I am beyond angry they are holding my work hostage. I have tried to email them twice to find out how to access the site and no response. I do not want access to their entire platform just admin access to my site. If I have to pay a month of premium to backup my work I will file complaints with the FTC as well as the BBB. This is terrible business practice. They already got 2 years worth of premium fees out of me and then lied or gave me incorrect info about the amount of time I would have to back the site up. I WOULD NEVER RECOMMEND WEALTHY AFFILIATE TO ANYONE. They are friendly as long as their hand is in your bank account. Does anyone know how I can get admin access to my wp site outside their platform so I can back it up before they delete it?
Sorry, those discounts offers are only available for those who will join Wealthy Affiliate from non restricted countries, it is provided by Wealthy Affiliate for our referrals automatically, so we can’t change that setting. However, if you after decide to pay yearly membership fee instead of monthly, then you can get around 39% discount. However, even the discount available is only for first month membership and even those who join as a free member, they also need to upgrade later because to get all benefits of Wealthy Affiliate, without upgrading is not possible. However, if you join through our link, we can provide you complete guidance, step by step support, private coaching. Even you can follow our founder Mr. Roka in Facebook and message him there.

Direct marketing occurs when businesses address customers through a multitude of channels, including mail, e-mail, phone, and in person. Direct marketing messages involve a specific “call to action,” such as “Call this toll-free-number” or “Click this link to subscribe.” The results of such campaigns are immediately measurable, as a business can track how many customers have responded through a message’s call to action.

The learning something new that someone brought up, but it’s a lot to pay for, and most of these people don’t validate anything-oh they made money? Wow, is it consistent, did you work hard at it, promote something other than WA and bait and switch people and what not. Those are behind the scenes, and even if some people have had success, it’s through WA boot camp, and they spend forever doing it. I’m sticking around for more comments to post/pages and a couple other things, but yeah I though about that already. Only time will tell right?
Yes, it costs money, but starting any business takes an investment. The key is to invest wisely, be frugal, and make sure you’re investing in the right things. With Wealthy Affiliate Premium you are literally getting absolutely everything you’ll need to start a successful business online. From the training to the web building tools to the website hosting, backup, security, and support – it’s all there in one place at a very reasonable price.
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?

Solo Build It – As I stated earlier in this Wealthy Affiliate review, I initially learned how to start my own business with this service. Solo Build It is somewhat similar to Wealthy Affiliate as far as the training is concerned, but Solo Build It but I believe the training at Solo Build It is far superior. My favorite part about Solo Build It, however, is that they offer absolutely EVERYTHING you’ll ever need to grow your business online including domain registration, an intuitive site builder, research tools, hosting, and all the other tools you need are in one place with training on how to put it all together. You can learn a lot more about them by going through their video tour.
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.
It is active but you are unable to do any editing to your website or make any money with it unless you pay the premium membership fee. Do not quote me but I believe you have exactly one year after cancelling to renew or you can forget having the option of having your website back. Basically what I am saying is you are denied access until you pay your dues, isn’t that so kind of Kyle and Carson?!
When deciding on your niche, you have to actually start a blog or a website that's going to be your online hub. This is where your anchor content is going to live. Everything else will link to here. All the ads you run and traffic you drive through social media or SEO or anything else will all come here. You need a custom domain and a professional looking site if you want anyone to take you seriously.

I don’t necessarily regret going with a paid membership, as it satisfied my curiosity about their platform. My intention was to see first-hand if they had any secret sauce to share, but they clearly do not. Wealthy Affiliate is milking a dying business model and I’m willing to bet they are not providing additional value or evolving their ‘curriculum’ to adapt to the ever-changing rules of internet search.
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.
If you can translate text lessons, then you can upgrade in Wealthy Affiliate because first you can translate the text lessons and once you understand the text lessons, you can see the video lessons because in video they have shown same things which they have written in text format in each lessons. So, first read those text by translating and then after that view the video, then you will understand everything.

BBB has also mentioned that Wealthy Affiliate offers training, support, and coaching along with the essential tools needed for running an online business. So, Wealthy Affiliate has revealed everything clearly and has provided the products and services as per its claim. That's why it has managed to survive from 2005 by getting an A+ rating in the platform like BBB.
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.
Yes, service must be available to everyone. However, WA didn't ban those countries from starting. But when it faced lots of hacking and spamming problems especially from those countries, then WA unwillingly banned those countries to secure its website. After all, every business owners will think about the security of their business. But, WA still trying to find other ways to make its website secure so that it can unban those countries once again.
You've made a comprehensive coverage on all the necessary aspects within Wealthy Affiliate, I was reading through the lines and I did really enjoyed it. As an affiliate for wealthy affiliate, you have covered few areas I have overlooked and this review really put some thorough emphasis on major areas that I didn't even know exists. All in all, you have made a really tremendous work on this.
This is where I hope you are willing to lend support.  We have watched the videos, listened in on the live phone chats, selected a niche, started writing usable material, explored related affiliate programs, etc. However, even though we are willing to do the work, we know that we need a person willing to walk us through the website maze and, through their experiences, provide the step-by-step guide we need to get our website up and started within 8 weeks. We are both educators and will need to return to full time jobs in September. (Then we’ll have weekends and sometime during the week for maintenance and improvements.) Our hope is to work out a mutually agreeable win – win arrangement with an experienced past or present member of the WA community.
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?
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 🙁

Social Media Managers know the pain of posting that perfect social media post only to have a follower find a typo a minute later and call you out. For marketers, using a social media tool to schedule all of your posts (so you catch those typos beforehand) is a must. But it also helps to get the right analytics from your social posts, especially on channels where it can be hard to get that information.
Generally, direct marketing campaigns should target people who have expressed interest or are likely to be interested in what your company offers rather than mass marketing campaigns used to create general awareness. For example, a new ice cream shop may want to send coupons shaped like ice cream cones to local households with kids at the start of summer. More targeted and personalized campaigns usually generate better results.
