Thank you for sharing this about Wealthy Affiliate!!! I love the video, it's short and to the point! It truly is awesome the amount of Good reviews vs the bad. I believe probably at least 95% of the reviews I read on Wealthy Affiliate are all POSITIVE! Thank you also for sharing that information about countries unable to get the free program, and as well as Nigeria being completely banned; that really is such a shame. Wealthy Affiliate definitely is the way to go for beginner or expert, it's platform and lessons are top notch and TRULY teach!
I am a long-time blogger and decided to join WA premium for a month. I was looking to build an affiliate site and had no experience in that area. I figured I could get through most of the premium training within the month. But the thing that I didn’t like was the way they guided you to use their system to set up your domain. No way. I want control over my domain name and WP site. That’s where people get trapped because they don’t know how to do this on their own. But the only way I would know that is having been a blogger before registering. I’ll finishe out the month. Get what I can from the training and apply to a site I start outside their “silo”.
Wow what a lot of information - loved the wee video by the way. I've been looking at Wealthy Affiliates on and off for a while now and the closer I get to retiring the more I need to make the leap. I've been put off by lots of the hype around some of the work from home / affiliate offerings but this review and other feedback from Wealthy Affiliates puts my mind at rest a bit. I'm also worried about internet security so, although disappointing that they have to do it, it's quite encouraging to know that the owners are across potential hacker and scammers even if it does mean banning whole countries.
The most responsive customers to direct mailing (or e-mailings) are those who have opted in to mailing lists (for example, an online shopper buying a product checks a box marked “send me information on future promotions”). Such customers have already expressed interest in the company’s products, and pay attention to new products and sales. (See also Permission Marketing)

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.


On the charter value of a boat, Boatbookings receives commission on the net charter value (not including APA or any additional items ordered). On this commission, affiliates will earn 20% as a base rate, with a possibility for escalating rates if referring multiple clients. When customers return to Boatbookings, affiliates receive an additional 10% commission on that second purchase.
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.
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!
But the main method that WA teaches these days – blogging about your favourite interest in the hope that some people will click your affiliate links and buy stuff – is a long hard road, and one that has a high chance of failure for a lot of people. But if you fail, WA will just say that you gave up too soon. What a convenient get-out clause for WA! If you succeed, WA takes the credit for showing you how to do it. But if you fail, it’s your own fault for giving up to early.
Determine who your main online competitors are. Research how they work, how they market and how big of a market share you believe they have. Sign up for e-newsletters, research their press releases and determine the strengths and weaknesses of each online competitor. You may even need to purchase something from them in order to understand how they complete their sales process.
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.
So far so good. No way? What a shame. I’m wondering if these “experts” even are aware of checking their own plugins, not to say they have the Alexa widget themselves but it goes to show that they’ll say anything to please people. There are people with knowledge at WA but sometimes I wonder what and why some of the responses to people are so vague or so general, while others don’t make complete sense at all. I’ve had my fair share of people replying with off centered comments and they normalize everything with no real answers. It’s bizzare. So much shiny object syndromes.
Before accuse us that we only promote Wealthy Affiliate and declare all other platforms are scams, we suggest you to check our "Good and Trusted Online Works" page as well as "Promising Online Works" page through our website's navigation menu where you can find we have listed several kinds of online work companies, not only Wealthy Affiliate. So, it is not that we only promote Wealthy Affiliate. If we find some good companies, we recommend and promote those as well because if we promote more companies, we can earn more money. So, why do we only want to promote Wealthy Affiliate? If we find some good companies, always we say that is good and promote that because in that way we can make more money than saying that company is bad and promoting Wealthy Affiliate only. So, before accusing us, first of all think yourself generally and also navigate our whole website.

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.
However, the biggest thing, that influenced my decision toward this company was the fact that,  they allow people to test drive (try them out) as a free member. As in free member for as long as one wishes. Also, they allow the more serious ones to take advantage of their premium membership which is the maximum learning, that's packed with tons of value and support.
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.

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.
Anyway, I’m thankful that I didn’t spend too much time on creating sites there and that I didn’t put any significant content before deciding to leave. I will now peruse some free training and then try two courses that are a bit pricey but seem more useful, The Authority Site System (from the Authority Hacker site), and SEO Affiliate Domination. I’m just starting to read the SEO Affiliate Domination free crash course, and as far as Authority Hacker is concerned, I can say that I got far more useful information in their free webinar alone that in all five WA courses combined. I first learned about these courses on Jeremy Harrison’s Hustle Life site. (He also says that WA is good but not great.) If anyone has tried the two aforementioned courses, I’d like to hear about it.

I used to be a member of Wealthy Affiliate. Great fucken service. I made a mistake with theyre affiliate link. I put it in my first post about what happened after i lost my job. They probably thought i was self promoting. It was an honest mistake. Now, they have taken away my websites, my domains, i cant access theyre website. Ive sent them several emails asking W.T.,F. Do you call this professionalism? No explanation, no emails, nothing. They just abolished the work i put in, plus six months membership. The least they can do is offer me a fucken refund. Im beyond angry, as you have probably guessed by now .Im still waiting for Kyle to r espond, but im not holding my breath. The least they owe me is an explanation.I agree with you, its a lot of hard work. I didnt expect it to be this hard. If i was to do another W.A review, it would be a lot different to the million robotic reviews on Google. I now hate them with a huge passion. The only thing holding me back from unleashing , is a true passion for this industry, plus ive talked to some awesome and lovely people on W.A. The community are what keeps me going.
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?!
