wealthy affiliate going up 300x83 - What Is Wealthy Affiliate? A Review...



So…What Exactly IS Affiliate Marketing you ask? Affiliate marketing is an online marketing business opportunity for you to make money using your websites, social media sites, and writing skills to advertise and sell merchant’s products.

You add unique and valuable content to your site which draws in visitors. Then  you receive a commission when your visitors click on the link/ad/banner/or picture taking them to the merchant’s site and that visitor buys something.

Sounds like a pretty simple concept? Yes…A lot of people are talking about it and many are offering training programs to explain and teach how to do it…

So, simple, yes…BUT…



The fact is that most people are failing miserably at affiliate online marketing! Too many people think that just by slamming together a web site and throwing a few articles they copy and paste from somewhere, and then adding some advertising links or banners on the site, they will make thousands and thousands of dollars, and that immediately.


These people unfortunately do not have a clear picture of what has to be done first to be successful. They fail and say the whole business segment is a fake, it doesn’t exist, or that there is no money to be made. They are wrong!


Here is why they are wrong: They have not done their homework! They simply do not know the correct way to do the affiliate business (and this is a business, not something you can do from a beach, at least not initially).


For example, to make ANY sales, all successful affiliate sales marketers must:

(1) Draw visitors to their site…

(2) Learn the best way to CONVERT these visits into leads they can dip into again and again…

And lastly,

(3) They must understand up-sell strategies to get increased spends when conversions occur.*

* If that visitor chooses NOT to buy that particular product, automatically offer an alternative sell to the visitor, or if they DO buy HOW to often provide an up-sell option to increase the value of the visitor.


So, now that we know things are not really that simple (if it were everyone would be doing it!), the next thing is to connect with training programs out there that WILL make it simpler!



This is your lucky day, because from my personal experience there is too much “noise” out there, and not enough products that deliver, many are under-performing or are out and out scams! I have found one that is NOT  a scam – and use it myself regularly!


OK go with me here…I want to ask you…


One Question: “Are YOU making TOO MUCH MONEY?”


If your answer is NO then I believe this program is the best affiliate marketing program for beginners or mid-level marketers, one where you can make more money, and here is where you find it!!

  • The Wealthy Affiliate program is an innovative, affordable and relatively simple way to build and earn a great living online over time.

I’ll tell you why…

  • This is not a scam. You pay NOTHING to “test drive” it for a week! You can create two websites during that week as a part of the classes that are included FREE for you. After that point, YOU decide to upgrade or remain as a free member (note you will lose access to some services that are included in the free week)…


  • Some of the other programs your searches will bring up may offer legitimate affiliate training courses, which provide the very basics and do make it possible to get started, but most often there are numerous up-sells involved, which you need to buy to get real value from the program. Thus the overall costs are significantly higher than Wealthy Affiliate, and come with less value. Their information is often dated or inaccurate.


  • Some are not even THAT good where they do offer a start. When purchased, immediately you can see there is NO VALUE whatsoever, and once again…you get that sense of FRUSTRATION…Once again you have WASTED YOUR TIME AND MONEY (this has happened to me)!

How To make Money Online  300x169 - What Is Wealthy Affiliate? A Review...


Following are four of the most important personal “tools” you will need to bring with you to the site – don’t worry, none involve money out of your pocket!

  • Drive. You as an individual must determine that you will spend the time and the effort to go through the offered free training step by step to learn how to most effectively create your own online marketing business through affiliate marketing!


  • Resolve. Having the best training in the world at your fingertips will NOT make you successful. If you do nothing with the knowledge gained it is a waste of your time too. So resolve to make use of and implement the FREE education you receive! The key to your success is within you, the motivation you have and your attitude.


  • Time Management. Once you have decided that you have the drive and resolve, the third element you need to be successful in using your time wisely. Resolve to spend a set number of hours a day on your own business, and stick to it! When it is time to take the classes, get them done. There will be many distractions, between your personal life, perhaps another job, and within the site itself, since there is such a wealth of information to be found there. This element is crucial for your success!


  • Plan and use the many other available resources offered on the site. If you want to get the most out of the site, plan for spending some time interacting with the thousands of other members who more than willingly share their valuable experiences. This is important also because these people are in the business, so they have up-to-date information and experiences on what is working, what is acceptable, and what you should NOT do (i.e. maybe you learned some things on SEO from one of the other “training” sites that was absolutely wrong and would actually HURT your effort!).


Very simple answer – Plan your program, resolve to complete it, determine the time you will spend daily, weekly, or monthly, and get started! Remember, you will have classes to go through, a blog site where you can post as you go along, several places on the site to ask questions within the classes and also elsewhere on the site, several ways you can interact with the members, and will be building your web site as a part of the courses you will go through.


My suggestion is, once you have signed up for free, have a look around, see what is there, get the simple admin registering completed, then complete your plan on how to get through the program, a timeline to do so, and then get started executing that plan! This is the approach I took and so far it has worked very well for me. You can get all this done any way that works for you, the important thing is to get it done!


Until I started with Wealthy Affiliate, I was wandering from site to site, looking for the answers…many promised me the moon, and delivered little or nothing. A common thread through all was pay…pay… pay….With Wealthy Affiliate it was the complete opposite…


Try Wealthy Affiliate out for FREE (they do not even ask for your credit card information!) HERE…After you see what we have YOU decide if you think the value offered is worth the small monthly charge for their service. I decided…I joined them and have not regretted it one second!

I personally recommend the online affiliate marketing education site Wealthy Affiliate. They provide what they say at a more than reasonable cost. You receive the education, advanced and up to date knowledge about what is required for you to be successful with establishing and growing you own online marketing business.


You receive current knowledge about determining a niche if you need this, the best website to construct for that niche, how to generate traffic to the site you create, how to use effective SEO with your site and its contents, how to find keywords that are effective (keyword research), how to write effective titles for your content, and much more. Not to mention there is a ton of support within the Wealth Affiliate Community from the co-founders on down.


I hope that you have a picture of what awaits you when you head over to the Wealth Affiliate site. If you have any questions or doubts at all, please add them below in the comment section. I am here to help, and would never recommend something I personally would not use.


This means there are a LOT of programs and services I can’t write such a review on – this one “checks every block” I have in evaluating a program – It offers value, service, honesty, integrity, and is effective! I wish there were more like this… 

Kind Regards,

  1. Can I simply say what a comfort to uncover somebody that really understands what they are talking about
    online. You actually realize how to bring an issue to light and make
    it important. More and more people have to read this and understand this side of the story.

    It’s surprising you are not more popular given that you most certainly possess the gift.

    1. Affiliates spend a lot of time, effort, and semetimos even a lot of money, to get people to click on their affiliate link. While that’s the end-result goal, that shouldn’t be the only goal that affiliates have.First and foremost, affiliates should never send traffic from a third-party website, such as through an article submitted to an article directory, or PPC ads, directly to the vendor website that they’re promoting. When this happens, affiliates have no control over the visitors they’ve acquired, and they have no hope of additional monetization options with these visitors.Instead, affiliates should do what it takes to drive targeted traffic to their own websites first. This way, affiliates have greater control over where the potential buyers go, and they ultimately gain the opportunity to capture the visitors’ contact information through their opt-in email list, or hook them by getting them to subscribe to their blog’s RSS feed.By capturing the attention of potential buyers before they click on the affiliate link, internet marketers are able to ‘recycle’ their visitors instead of simply deflecting them to a vendor and losing out on the opportunity to market to them again.

        I agree that there are many considerations on how best to set up driving traffic…Grabbiong their contact information for all of them is important for all of them, as you say. If not, you are losing out on future income, as the money is in the list as they say.

      1. Hi Willy,
