Even so, what about Wealthy Affiliate? Does it work? This article will answer your questions. In the end, if you still have unanswered questions, please let me know in the comments section.
Affiliate Marketing is the business model taught by Wealthy Affiliate using the following:
- Blogging using your own website
- YouTube Content Creation
- Social Media
You may already know what affiliate marketing is. Some readers may not. If so, check out what I wrote about affiliate marketing in this blog post: How Easy Is Affiliate Marketing.
The concept is easy to understand. The affiliate marketing process consists of just 4 steps shown below:
Let me illustrate in more detail how the affiliate marketing process works using the diagram below:
In 1 above, a customer looks for more information on a product or service. 2, they find an article on your website via the search results that answer the questions they have. Since you did a good job with your content, they click an affiliate link you provided that takes them to a vendor, 3, have an agreement with, and make the purchase. The vendor sends you a commission 4.
To make this work you will need to do this right. That is where Wealthy Affiliate comes into the picture.
It takes knowledge, skills, tools, and work, and lots of it, to make this cycle run like clockwork. Once it does, you will have created a money-making machine. There are many success stories in Wealthy Affiliate that I will share with you below. Wouldn’t it be awesome to become a success story yourself?
I’d like to share some success stories of a few members who have achieved success using the Wealthy Affiliate training program. Here are 5 members from the past few years who have achieved various levels of success.
Very impressive results indeed. These results are life-changing.
1 – Roope
2 – Zarina
3 – Nathaniell
4 – Brok
5 – Neil
Can you see yourself in this group?
They all have a few critical traits in common. When you read this list, do you feel you have these traits too? From 1 to 10, 10 being strongest, where do you see yourself?
Don’t worry if you’re not a 10 right now. However, if you score yourself less than a 7, maybe affiliate marketing is not for you. That is OK. This is NOT for everyone. Read these traits and think about them deeply before you give yourself a score.
- You have a desire so strong to change your life, you are willing to do whatever it takes.
- The willingness to learn the skills in affiliate marketing.
- To create a game plan and the discipline to spend a few hours every day working on your plan.
I listed only three character traits. If you possess just these, you will be able to achieve your goals. Conversely, if you don’t, then you have a simple choice. Make every effort to jump on this success train. Or resign yourself to being left behind.
Sometimes, the fear of poverty can light a fire under you to develop these traits. The rewards for taking action are worth the effort.
Can Affiliate Marketing Work For You?
Sure it can. If you want it to. These individuals above, along with an army of others, are no different to you and me. If they can do it, we can too. I say we because I have to be honest. Although I am earning residual income, I am still working towards my goals.
Affiliate Marketing is NOT a get-rich-quick scheme. If that is what you’re after, please don’t read any further and look for something else. It takes time. How long depends on the niche you select and the work you are willing to devote to building your online business.
I have chosen the Make Money Online niche. This happens to be one of the most competitive. You are free to choose whatever niche you want. How about fun stuff, like drones, specialty travel, and arts and crafts?
Why did I pick the most competitive niche? Simple.
I know that there are so many individuals who are searching for an opportunity to turn their lives around. Especially in this post-pandemic world. I happen to be passionate about helping others. What a wonderful way to do that by showing people a business model where the cost of entry is so low, and the probability of success so high if they follow the training.
If you are willing to learn from the best and work hard to put what you learn into practice every day, there is no doubt, you will achieve your dreams. Just like thousands of others have in Wealthy Affiliate.

Before we dig into the features and benefits listed above I’d like to tell you the story of how Wealthy Affiliate began and where it is today.
A Brief Story Of Wealthy Affiliate
Wealthy Affiliate was founded in 2005 by a couple of very successful affiliate marketers, Kyle and Carson. The company is headquartered in British Columbia, Canada.
In their original program, members signed up to receive a list of Keywords each week. The company has come a long way since then and currently has over 2.5 million members.
The Wealthy Affiliate Platform has grown to be the largest online marketing training platform in the world. In most companies, the founders do not get involved in the day-to-day interaction with their members. Yet, Kyle is active daily in answering members’ questions and conducting personal training sessions. Carson works in the background perfecting the technological foundation of Wealthy Affiliate.
Frequently Kyle has an Ask Me Anything webinar where he answered questions about Keywords from the members.
When you conduct product searches on web browsers, the chances are you will often find the first pages of Google, Bing, and Yahoo filled with blog posts by members of Wealthy Affiliate. Its members know how to rank and make money, using the lessons learned via formal courses and webinars.
Wealthy Affiliate is constantly evolving to meet the needs of its members. In the Spring of 2020, the platform was re-engineered with major modifications designed to provide more power to its members and give them a competitive edge in affiliate marketing.
More changes are being made right now to give its members an even stronger edge toward success.
Several of its most successful affiliate marketers were recruited to give webinars. They show in detail how they became so successful that the members could duplicate what they did and become successful too.
Earn While You Learn
One of the Super Affiliates in Wealthy Affiliate, Tim McKinlay, recently presented a 4-Part webinar on techniques members can use to “Earn While You Learn!”
It is no secret that it takes time and hard work to build an affiliate marketing business that starts to earn an income regularly. However, you can also earn an income using the skills you accumulate as you complete each of the courses. A screenshot of the webinar is shown below.
If you wish to access this course, you can by clicking the picture below and signing up for a free two weeks all access to the Wealthy Affiliate Platform:
How To Find Out More And Join Wealthy Affiliate?
I am going to give you three options to do this. Each has its unique, but distinct, benefits.
1st Option – 14-Day Case Study Course On Building A Business From Scratch
Our resident Online Traning Coach, Jay Neil recently concluded a non-stop 14-day series on how to create an online business from scratch. He began by selecting a niche. He ended with a brand new working website on which he just started adding content. His first content was ranked on the first page of Bing within 5 days.
You can click this link and sign up for this training, free for 14 days. Click the following picture to go to the sign-up page.
In addition to this training series, you will also have access to EVERYTHING Wealthy Affiliate has to offer during your free 14-day trial. You will need to provide your credit card. It will not be charged until that two weeks is up. If you do not wish to continue, just cancel your membership before 14 days.
2nd Option – Free Starter Membership, No Credit Card is Required
This option lets you join the Wealthy Affiliate Program as a free starter member. You do not have to enter your credit card. However, there are limitations. You do not have unlimited access to everything on the Platform. It’s a try-before-you-buy option.
You do have access to 5 of the 50 lessons about the Online Entrepreneur Certification Course. You can also build one website for free using the siterubix subdomain and have it hosted for free on the Wealthy Affiliate secure server.
For your first seven days, you can communicate with other members as well as the co-founders of Wealthy Affiliate, Kyle and Carson. During these seven days, you will be offered options to sign up as a paid member.
Once the seven days are over, you will not be able to communicate with anyone. Those 5 lessons will always be available to you, as will a limited array of research tools.
You can remain a free starter member as long as you wish. If and when you are ready to upgrade, you can do that through your Wealthy Affiliate business dashboard.
There is one amazing perk you have as a free member. Wealthy Affiliate has an affiliate program. You can market this to anyone you choose, online or offline.
If they sign up as a paid member, you will earn a commission that will be 50% of what a paid member would earn. Isn’t that cool?
3rd Option – Compare & Pick The Membership Level Of Your Choice
Wealthy Affiliate has three membership options.
- Free Starter Membership – No Credit Card Required
- Paid Premium Membership – $49 Monthly; $497 Paid Annually (Works Out To $41.42/Month)
- Paid Premium Plus Membership – $99 Monthly; $697 Paid Annually (Works Out To $58.1/Month)
You will be able to compare these three levels after you join as a free member before making a decision. But, you must become a free starter member first as Wealthy Affiliate wants you to be sure this platform is for you before parting with any money.
