Members of Wealthy Affiliate can earn money by inviting other people to WA. It’s a typical referral/affiliate program where you earn money by recommending a product.
Wealthy Affiliate is not a multi-level/network marketing system because your purpose is not to build downlines. You don’t build a “team” or anything similar. You simply recommend Wealthy Affiliate to people who might find it valuable.
It works in a same way like any other affiliate program: You earn commissions for each sale. However, WA referral program has a few benefits compared to many other affiliate programs.
One of the best things about Wealthy Affiliate referral program is that you will earn recurring income. It means that you’ll earn monthly or a yearly commission from all of your premium referrals. It also means that the earnings will add up pretty quickly.
10 yearly referrals make you already $1,750 commissions. 100 yearly referrals make you $17,500 in commissions. And you’ll earn that income as long as those referrals stay as members whether you would be working or not. In the other words, you’ll be earning lots of passive income.
How Does Wealthy Affiliate Pay You? – Numbers
As a premium member you earn in the following way:
$1 for every referral that fills out their Wealthy Affiliate profile (Adds a profile picture and a description)
If you have a free membership on Wealthy Affiliate, you earn half of those amounts as an affiliate. Therefore, I certainly recommend to premium. In addition, if you recommend or promote Wealthy Affiliate to others, it feels natural that you are also using it yourself.
To clarify the numbers let me also show you the following picture:
With the Wealthy Affiliate referral program, you earn recurring income.
Commissions don’t sound much at first but I have noticed that they can add up quite quickly. Let me just show you two examples from two of my friends who have been promoting Wealthy Affiliate already for a few years:
Kyle was a complete newbie with affiliate marketing in 2015 but now he’s earning +$6,500/month. Notice that Wealthy Affiliate promotion is only one of his income streams.
Vitaly (one of my mentors) earned about $60,000 in a year just by promoting WA. He made $11,234.50 in November 2017 alone.You can read more about Kyle and Vitaly on my Wealthy Affiliate roundup post where I interviewed 17 members related to the question, “Is Wealthy Affiliate worth it?” They also shared tips for beginners who are interested in earning money online.
That kind of earnings are possible for anyone. If you have the Internet connection and willingness to work hard, you can earn even much more than Vitaly.
Of course, I want to remind that such earnigns like $11,234 in a month require tons of hard work. Vitaly has worked for years to achieve such results. That being said, it’s certainly possible for you as well.
Wealthy Affiliate Income Examples
On the Wealthy Affiliate, you can access a simple calculator that will show you the earnings with their affiliate program. I showed how it works in my video above but if you didn’t watch it fully, let me show a few examples here.
Wealthy Affiliate referral program calculator.
Your earnings will depend on 3 factors:
The number of referrals per day.
Upgrade rate from free membership to premium.
The calculator gives you an idea how much you will earn with the Wealthy Affiliate referral program.
In the example above, I have put that you make 7 referrals per day. 10% (1 out of 10) becomes a premium member and they stay 5 months on average as a premium.
Wealthy Affiliate Payment Methods
Wealthy Affiliate pays you easily via PayPal. You get the payment at the beginning of each month, usually in the first or the second day of the month. Let me show you an example from my own email:
Wealthy Affiliate sends the payment usually first or second day of the following month through PayPal.
Most of the affiliate programs that I use also make their payments through PayPal. In my opinion, it’s the most practical way.

5 Questions That I Asked from 17 WA-Members
1.Why And When did you join Wealthy Affiliate?
2.Did you have any former experience of making money online?
3.Why do you like Wealthy Affiliate?
4.Who would especially benefit from Wealthy Affiliate? / Who do you recommend WA?
5.What are the 3 short tips that you would give to a beginner who wants to make money online?
Are you ready to see what they answered? Let’s go!
We’ll start with Nathaniell who was the person that invited me to Wealthy Affiliate in 2015 on his website. His help and support have been immensely important for me during my online business journey.
1) I joined WA in 2010 because I was looking for ways to make money while traveling in Asia. My job paid in Chinese money, but it was hard to go anywhere outside of China and have a great vacation. The exchanges rates are not very good!
What started as just a way to make US dollars in China to fund fun activities, ended up being a full-time venture!
2) Nope! I had no idea how to build a website or how to make money. I lived outside the US for 10 years, so I didn’t even have a smartphone or Facebook account before I moved back to the US in 2012.
3) There are a lot of reasons to like WA. I think the main ones are
1) It’s a community where people can help each other and get advice from full-time marketers and 2) It simplifies the online marketing process from complicated schemes to “game” Google into writing a content-focused blog on a specific topic that helps people.
In other words, they teach the concept of creating a long-term online business that helps people. It’s like picking stocks.
You can buy a penny stock now and hope to jump out before it bombs, or you can pick a solid company that will beat out the market over the next decade.
4) Newbies who are sick of being jerked around from product to product will benefit from Wealthy Affiliate.
If you don’t have a business plan in mind and want to learn how to make money from a website without having to watch your back every five minutes for the next thing to buy from a guru sending you an email, then Wealthy Affiliate is an awesome place to learn affiliate marketing.
Nathaniell started on Wealthy Affiliate while living in China.
My 3 Tips for Beginners:
1. If you create low-quality content now, you will regret it later. I have spent many hours and dollars trying to edit old content I am embarrassed that I published to my site!
2. You can’t be perfect. This contradicts Tip #1, but it still relevant! Better to publish something “less than perfect” than to publish nothing at all. You can always go back and edit or improve later.
3. Get into the mindset of helping people. You might think you can pull a “fast one” and make some quick sales by writing some overhyped content, but most people are savvy to that type of marketing. Long-term, helpful, honest content wins out.
Once you have traffic flowing in, you can tweak your sales copy or calls to action to increase conversions to but start out you need to have your visitors in mind!
1 – June 2015 I joined Wealthy Affiliate to learn about Affiliate Marketing to earn more revenue online.
2 – I’ve been earning an income online since 2007
3 –I love Wealthy Affiliate because of the Wonderful Community of Friends who are Caring, Knowledgeable and Sharing. I also love WA because of the Amazing support team including Carson, Kyle, Jay and also SiteSupport.
4 – I always recommend WA to my Friends and Family who are would like to become Business Owners to increase their visibility online with Affiliate marketing while learning about SEO, Keywords, Content Creation and Marketing.
3 short tips for beginners:
#1 – Join WA with a person who you trust and can learn from.
#2 – Place more emphasis on your business than on your extracurricular activities ie… TV watching, partying, game playing. Treat your online business like a business by putting in the work and staying focused!
#3 – Never stop learning, be like a sponge. The internet is full of information – Make sure that what you learn is current, true and applicable to where you want to go. Always know where you want to go so that you can work towards getting there.
(1) I joined WA in July 2015. I was looking for a way to earn money from home while raising my children. Back then, I was still working full time, but have a pretty tight schedule (not too suitable for a mom with small children).
(2) I did try writing for Squidoo (it’s an online platform whereby you can build your website for free and inserting affiliate links in the articles, the revenue is shared between Squidoo and the author. I didn’t earn much though, maybe just $20 per month at most).
(3)I like Wealthy Affiliate because it provides a complete step by step guide for a beginner, it has a community for asking questions, the Site Comment to really help to keep the website alive at the beginning, also the Keyword Tool. Oh, I also love the weekly webinar by Jay.
(4) I guess everyone who is trying to make income online will benefit from Wealthy Affiliate, especially newbies. WA certification provides you with basic yet very important steps you need to do in building and growing your website.
(5)3 Tips for Beginners:
Join WA and follow the certification course step by step (don’t skip lessons and do the assignment).
Don’t get easily distracted with other shiny objects out there.
1. I joined June 2007. I was doing marketing on my own for years before this. But I felt like I didn’t really understand what I needed to do. Then I rank into Travis who created Bum Marketing.
He recommended Wealthy Affiliate. Initially, I was very skeptical because of the name. But because the recommendation came from someone I trusted, I decided to give it a shot. I haven’t left since.
2. Yes, I was successfully making money doing things like surveys, PTC, reading emails. However, the income was limited because it was based on my own activities.
However once I realized these programs had referral programs, I started to focus on referring people to these sites because I made more money and it became passive. So that was my introduction to affiliate marketing.
3. I love Wealthy Affiliate because it’s a one-stop shop for all types of internet marketing training and tools. I also love the fact that it’s a supportive community that encourages its users. The heart of Wealthy Affiliate are the members and owners.
4. I think Wealthy Affiliate is perfect for anyone looking to make money online. But the ideal person is willing to learn, put in hard work and has the patience to make this work for them. If you have an employee or get rich quick mentality then you won’t really like Wealthy Affiliate.
My tips are the following:
a. Invest in yourself. One of my biggest regrets was not to invest in my own education via buying courses or eBooks from people that were successful in what I wanted to master. It costs me thousands of dollars in income I would have earned sooner if I wasn’t being cheap or trying to do everything for free.
b. Be patient. People assume that the internet means little work and instant success. It’s not. You need to have a lot of delayed gratification to succeed in this business. A lot of the work you initially put in won’t bear fruit until months later. But people give up before seeing that. You have to push forward even if you don’t see the initial results. It will come if you’re following the training.
c. Fail forward. Too many people are afraid to fail or make mistakes. But that’s part of the process. Most of the successful people you know have failed many times. The difference between them and the rest of the population is that they don’t allow failure to stop them. They use these temporary failures as lessons that help them get closer to their success. You’re going to run into obstacles and challenges. Don’t give up.
1) I joined Wealthy Affiliate in 2015 about a month after I first started looking for a way to make money online. The reason I decided to join was because it took a realistic approach to things and wasn’t telling me that I would make a ton of money with little to no work.
I had come close to being scammed and wasted a lot of time prior to this and Wealthy Affiliate just seemed honest.
The reason I was looking for work online was mostly because I wanted the geographical freedom to pick up and move wherever I might want or need to.
Kyle has shared his earnings from one affiliate program on his website.
2) I started with no experience in this realm. I messed around with paid surveys, PTC sites, and a few other things but had no experience with affiliate marketing or anything that WA taught.
3) I like WA because of the honesty and the community most of all. The training and the tools are great, don’t get me wrong, but I feel that the honest approach that WA takes along with the lively community really separate it from other similar platforms.
4) I mostly recommend WA to people who are looking to supplement their income, bring in a part-time income, or potentially go full-time. However, I don’t recommend it to those that are in need of an income immediately. It’s a slow process and takes time to get things moving.
And of course, I recommend this to those that like to blog or write articles since this accounts for the majority of the job.
5) A: Pick a niche that is, at the very least, interesting to you. I know this doesn’t sound like much of a tip but I learned the hard way early on. You will get burnt out if you are writing about things you don’t really care for.
B: Don’t waste time making your website perfect. In the early stages, I always see so many people trying to make their website look perfect. This is often a waste of time and will not help with conversions. I always tell people to keep it as simple as possible when starting.
C: Write quality content and lots of it. Its all about content. I get 100% of my website traffic from content ranked in the search engines.
Pump out the good content and keep doing this. Follow the curriculum. There is no secret to this the problem is that most people write 5 or 6 posts and don’t see any money coming in so they give up.
1- I joined Wealthy Affiliate on the 24th October of 2016, I was looking for a way to make money online, I desperately need to make some extra cash to pay off my university and rent fees.
2- When I joined WA I was a complete newbie, I had no idea how money could be made online, I knew people do make money online and I knew it was something possible but I had no clue how and where to get started.
3- I like Wealthy Affiliate because of their amazing well laid out training, they have videos, tutorials, articles, live webinars, all laid out for you in a step by step.
On top of that, they have an amazing community and support team that will support you and help you whenever you get stuck in the training.
4- Everyone will benefit from Wealthy Affiliate but I think newbies are the ones that will benefit the most.
Because WA is especially suitable for newbies, people like me who joined WA without any experience. I highly recommend WA for newbies.
5- When I joined Wealthy Affiliate I was hoping to make thousands of dollars in my first or second month.
But that was an unrealistic income wish. I’m not saying it’s not possible to make thousands of dollars online but it takes lots of time and hard work to reach that amazing goal.
The most important 3 tips that I learned that I want to share with newbies hoping to make money online are:
1) Work Hard and be Consistent
If you want to make money you will need to put in a lot of consistent focused hard work That’s the key to success, WA is a legitimate training, I mean it’s not a click a button scheme.
2) Set a realistic income goal
Before you aim for the thousands of dollars, aim for your first dollar, then your first $50, then your first $100.
That’s how it works.
Your online business results will grow really slowly, you need to be patient. There will come days when you will want to quit when you will get frustrated.
You will need to overcome those, thatìs the patience test, a fundamental step to overcome if you want to succeed.
“You can have everything in life you want if you will just help other people to get what they want.” -Zig Ziglar
3) Help people and the money will come
When you start building your business, your goal should be to help people fix their problems. You need to write content that solves people’s problems.
Then give them a paid solution ( send them to your affiliate links).
If you don’t help people, they won’t click your affiliate links and won’t buy from you.
1) I joined Wealth Affiliate after doing some research on making money online and luckily it was the first place I joined. I had a few jobs before that and just wasn’t happy with them. I didn’t like the structure and rigidity of working for someone else.
2) I didn’t have any experience before this but it took me a little over a year to really figure things out.
3) I would say someone that’s willing to put in the work and able to discipline themselves. It takes daily effort to make this work and a lot of experimenting. If you’re expecting to work for a month and be set for life then this isn’t for you.
3 Short Tips for Beginners:
Number one: Be willing to make changes if you’re not getting results.
Number two: Research successful websites in your niche. See how long their content is and which keywords they have.
Number three: Always plan ahead. Don’t just wing it day in and day out. Figure out the next 10 keywords you’re going to write and then write them. Track your results and make the changes necessary to become successful.
1.I think its August 2015. Since I have read rich dad poor dad, I always wanted to have a passive source of income. I tried MLM business but it didn’t work. That is when I discovered online marketing. I tried one online program but it is too expensive. That is when I discovered about wealthy affiliate.
2.No, actually, I don’t have prior experience in earning online.
3.The support in WA is awesome. Whenever I am lost or I have a question, I immediately get answers.
4.I recommend WA to everyone. No matter your age is, it is not too late to start.
3 Short Tips for Beginners:
-Don’t be too hard on yourself
– Be consistent
1) I joined Wealthy Affiliate in May 2016. That’s when I was 18 years old. I joined WA because I knew I’m not going to become an employee and work for other people. So that’s why I started looking for opportunities online.
2) Before I came across WA, I joined another company trying to make money online. However, it turned out to be a scam. Fortunately, it didn’t take long before I found WA. Having the experienced of being scammed, this makes even more definite that WA is a truly amazing place.
3) Simply put, WA is the best place for anyone to build an online business at a very affordable and reasonable price.
The value it offers way exceeds the price it charges you. But I need to mention that their truly ‘pay-it-forward’ community is something that I love the most. It’s hard to find any other platform with such an amazing community!
4) Let me put it this way. WA is NOT for you if you’re looking for some get rich quick schemes and you’re not willing to put in your time and effort in building your own business. Other than that, WA is for everyone who has the will to succeed online.
5) My 3 tips can be summarized in 3 words: COMMITMENT, CONSISTENCY, and PATIENCE.
Make money online is a serious business. One common mistake many people make is dabbling around. Wealthy Affiliate is a legitimate place to make money online. So you need to COMMIT your time, effort and most importantly yourself.
Next, consistency is key to all success. You’re not going to lose 20kg by just going to gym for one week, are you? That’s not possible. This is the same for your online business as well.
Lastly, building an online business is not like working for a paycheck. You won’t be seeing any results in the beginning but you need to be patient. Trust the system and put in consistent work. Very soon, you’ll be grateful that you didn’t give up half way!
1.I joined it in 2007 and it was a “last resort” after having VERY bad experiences with other make money type programs. I said to myself this is the last one I’ll try and if it fails, I’m done. Luckily that last shot turned out to be the best shot 🙂
2.I had a little bit of it, 2 years before WA, but nothing major happened.
3.They are real, they (WA) give you the fishing rod but you have to do the fishing so to say. And the community help is a big bonus. Finally, the tools they set up, make it the best place to get everything you need.
4.Hobbyists, anyone seeking to try a different way of making money in life (retirees, travelers, people tired of their jobs, etc…).
3Short Tips for Beginners
1) Start with WA.
2) Complete their courses.
3) Work passionately at this.
Vitaly’s earnings from one of his websites. (November 2017, $11,234.50)
1.I always have a knack for trying new niches so I joined WA because I wanted to learn how to monetize my passion and to see whether or not I can make money from it. When I tried WA, I was so surprised as to how transparent they are with the lessons and reality of Internet Marketing.
I decided to create a blog and until now, it’s still standing firm online, monetizing even when I haven’t worked on it for months. I joined in May 2014 so there are 3 months more to go until I reach my 4th year with WA, yey!
2.Not at all. I worked as a hotelier so the closest thing I know to using the internet was to play World of Warcraft.
3.Well, apart from the amazing evergreen lessons, I would say that I love WA because of the community itself. Everyone is very supportive and they come from various backgrounds.
Unlike MLM where they pressure you day and night to make money so that they can earn a commission off your downline, WA’s community is a lot different. Everyone is a business owner and we work very hard daily to create new content for our business so you will never see anyone pressuring you to work because we don’t get anything from you.
We help because we want to give back to the community and for me, even though I’ve finished the lessons in WA, I still maintain my membership to help out from time to time as for how Kyle and Carson guided me when I first started.
4.I recommend WA to everyone. Whatever your dreams and ambitions are, you can learn how to monetize that and make a living doing what you love.
For me, I love writing content and I love organizing events so I decided to create a website called kamiraevents.com sharing random tips from my experiences. After a while, I was confident enough to start promoting my services to organize huge events on my own such as doing Gala Dinners and Event Decorations. Today, I have my own shop with a team of 10 people with me.
I also have a blog sharing tips on SEO and Content Marketing at MyInternetQuest.com. It doesn’t stop there, I also opened started blogging about games and ended up opening a physical store in Shah Alam, Malaysia where I come from. Whatever your dreams are, WA will show you the way on how to reach there,
3 short tips for beginners:
Always be on the lookout for new trends and contents to take advantage of.
Be consistent with your work, it’ll help grow your business faster.
NEVER give up. Often times success starts to build up the moment you’re about to quit so you may never know
1. I joined Wealthy Affiliate back in April of 2015. I’d spent a year thinking about doing affiliate marketing and doing loads of research, but yet I still didn’t know where to really start.
It was only when I joined Wealthy Affiliate that I had a clear direction and the process really started to make sense. I was searching for more ways to make money online and affiliate marketing seemed like a good fit.
2. Prior to affiliate marketing, I’d made some part-time money selling items on eBay. I also used to write, publish and sell a lot of eBooks. This did well for a few years, then competition became really fierce and sales really dried up. That’s when I went in search of something else to do online as well.
3. I could write a lot about this, but I’ll sum things up with 2 simple reasons.
Firstly, the training is easy. Anyone can do this if they follow the lessons.
Secondly, and most importantly, I get to interact with a community that desires to see everyone else succeed in this business, and that’s rare. I’ve learnt so much from other members. It really is an unbelievable community.
4. Anyone could really stand to benefit from being a member of WA. If you want to make extra money from the comfort of home, or even establish a fulltime business, then WA is for you. It’s not all about affiliate marketing either. What’s taught at Wealthy Affiliate is relevant to all sorts of ways to make money online.
5. Avoid wasting time and money on obvious scams that promise you riches without telling you how. If it sounds unbelievable, then it probably is.
Be prepared to put time and effort into something and don’t expect to be making money instantly, or even within the first few months. Give it time as it’ll be well worth it.
Make a list of all the positive reasons you want to make money online and keep it somewhere visible. It’ll help you stay motivated and to persevere through any tough times.
1) I joined Wealthy Affiliate in July 2015 while I was looking for an Online survey review. That was when I discovered affiliate marketing the power of passive income. At that point, I knew that could change my life in a way that I never imagined.
2) Apart from making money with online surveys, I had never made a dime online. I had zero experience.
3) The community aspect of Wealthy Affiliate, and to know I can always get support and motivation whenever I need.
It’s a lonely job, so being part of a community of people who are in the same boat, and being able to share successes and failures is awesome.
4) Anyone can benefit from WA. However, some people are not motivated enough to put in the work. So, for those who are prepared to grind and reach their goals, WA is an incredible investment.
3 Tip for Beginners:
Learn from your mistakes.
Don’t procrastinate. Bonus tip – Work hard like your life depend on it.
Stefan made recently $472.50 in passive income while riding a camel in Sahara desert. Thanks to Wealthy Affiliate!
1) I joined Wealthy Affiliate in 2015 and the main reason behind it was that I wanted to be flexible with time and location (so that I could travel more).
Initially, I started my online journey as a freelancer but I soon realized that even though I was working online, I wanted to have more freedom and answer for myself only.
Being a blogger/affiliate marketer definitely sounded more like something I’d want to do. And I decided to go for it (with Wealthy Affiliate).
2) As I mentioned in #1, I had experience in making money online as a freelancer. And while it was a great experience, running after someone to give me a job wasn’t something I wanted to do.
3) There are too many reasons why I like this Wealthy Affiliate community.
First of all, it’s because it really is a community of like-minded, helpful individuals. I think I would probably have quit if it wasn’t for the support I received throughout the years. See, when you are building a business online, it can get lonely. But when you communicate with fellow WA members and see their progress and success stories, it cheers you up and confirms that nothing is impossible.
Second thing is the step-by-step training that is very newbie-friendly. When you just start out you barely understand how this money making business works but WA helps you figure it out, inspire you and get you to work.
There are a lot of things I could say about Wealthy Affiliate but I believe these 2 points are crucial – proper guidance and endless support – if you want to succeed online.
4) Frankly, anyone of any profession would benefit from WA. Anyone who wants to make a side cash or build a full-time business online. Anyone who has a passion and is willing to put in work. It’s easier to say who is it NOT for: Wealthy Affiliate is not for those who are looking for easy money (ways to get rich quick).
You WILL have to treat your website as a business from the beginning and put time and efforts into it. It can get challenging and that’s when the community/support aspect of Wealthy Affiliate will come in handy.
3 Short Tips for Beginners Who Want to Make Money Online
The best advice I can give you is, be patient. Please, be patient. Building an online business takes time and it potentially may take some time before you will see your first commissions. I made my first $50 commissions after 5 months of entering the online business world. Now I can make these fifty bucks in 1 day.
Second tip – if you decided to join the WA, follow the training. While creativity is appreciated, if you are a total newbie, just follow the training.
And finally, treat your website as a business. You don’t have to write articles like a lunatic but do pay attention to it on a daily basis – think of different ways to improve your business. Do keyword research. Connect with fellow bloggers in your niche. Write at least 300 words for your new article. Do something to improve.
1: I joined WA in 2013 because I wanted more than a JOB, I wanted to earn an income that would set me free in life.
2: I started online marketing in 1999, bouncing from one online money making opportunity to another.
But I did learn about the concept of affiliate marketing, pick up a few marketing skills, and make some part-time commissions prior to joining WA.
3: The reason why I love WA so much is for the fact that it provides everything I need to run a successful business, it’s got a fantastic community to fall back on for support, and the training from Kyle is evergreen.
4: Absolutely anyone can join WA, even a novice with zero knowledge on internet marketing because the training is so easy to follow.
If you have a hobby or passion, you can build a profitable business with WA.
My 3 tips for beginners wanting to make money:
Stick with the training platform and don’t continually buy into the latest and greatest shiny objects.
Believe in yourself, drown out the naysayers, and work hard because it will pay off.
Focus on building your business during your spare time and learn to say no to distractions like TV until your business is off the ground.
Thank you very much for all the answers. I appreciate them all.
Now I would like to answer a few frequently asked questions on WA that beginners are usually thinking.
How Much Money Can You Make with Wealthy Affiliate?
Wealthy Affiliate teaches you to build a successful online business which means that even the sky isn’t a limit with your earnings. That being said, you shouldn’t wait for millions right away.
Building a successful business takes time and effort. You can make much more money that with a regular 9-5 job but you need to be patient and consistent. With a 9-5 job or with freelancing you make money right away when the task is accomplished. With a business, you first make a work and afterward you reap the rewards.
Sometimes I earn money from the work that I did 1,5 years ago. That’s also the beauty of having an online business. You can make money while you are sleeping, traveling, laying on the beach, chatting with your friends, etc. In addition, you can decide when you work and where you work. I have traveled to 5 different countries during the past 2 months because having an online business allows me to do that.
Some time ago I created a post of 5 WA members who were making +$10,000/month (and some of them much more). I know a guy who started on Wealthy Affiliate some years ago without any experience and nowadays he’s running a +$1 Million/year online business. The key is just to get started, keep on learning and doing.
You will succeed if you follow the training and put it into action consistently.
Wealthy Affiliate Cost – Free Or Less Than $1 Per Day
In my comprehensive Wealthy Affiliate review, I have explained the pricing on WA. You can get started for completely free and have an access to all premium features for 7 days. You still remain a free membership for a lifetime unless you want to upgrade to premium.
The price of a premium membership is $19 for the first month and $49/month or $359/year afterward. I certainly recommend going for a yearly plan because you save $229 immediately with it. In addition, it will pay itself back many times over the time course.
Let’s say, for example, that Wealthy Affiliate helps you to make $10,000/year more money online, $359 investment to their training costs nothing.
With the Wealthy Affiliate premium membership you will get an access to:
Step-by-step online business training.
Help and support from successful online entrepreneurs.
My 1-on-1 support. I give you personal tips and answer all your questions personally.
Own high-quality websites and easy-to-use website domain hosting.
Access to 1,000’s of classes and online business tutorials.
The best keyword tool in the industry. (Helps you to drive 10,000’s visitors to your website from Google.)
And much more!
Conclusion – Is Wealthy Affiliate Worth It?
Yes, Wealthy Affiliate is certainly worth it. Everybody who follows the training and applies the knowledge will earn money and get good results.
I have seen it so many times on my own and also in other people’s lives. My 2 most important tips for you are:
In my experience, many times making big money online mostly depends on the willingness to do the things. On Wealthy Affiliate, you have everything you need to succeed. Your task is just to apply the knowledge into practice.
If you haven’t yet started the training on Wealthy Affiliate, I highly recommend that you get started today. I will send you a personal message inside the community right after you have joined and I’ll help you hand in hand to get started well.

Let me know in the comments below! 🙂
If you have any questions, I will be more than happy to help you out.
Today I am going to tell you “What is the Fastest Way to Make Money Online for Free?” I have made thousands of euros online for free in a little period of time so I know something about this subject.
Earn First Dollars in 5 Minutes
If you want to make money online very quickly, then you can fill out a few surveys and complete other mini tasks. There are hundreds of that kind of sites online where they pay you for completing little tasks like:
Downloading mobile apps
We have reviewed tens of that kind of sites here in YourOnlineRevenue.com so we really know which one is the best and which ones are scams. I will give you two best options that you choose.
In my opinion, PrizeRebel is the best “Get-Paid-To” -site that exists. They have already paid more than $10 million in cash and rewards for their members since 2007. They have also a nice, user-friendly platform and there many ways how you can quickly earn some dollars.
Probably the world’s biggest and most famous “Get-Paid-To” -site is Clixsense. They have paid more than $23,600,000 for their members in total since February 2007. They have also a variety of ways to make money online quickly.
Why Don’t I Recommend You to Do That? – There Is a Better Way!
As I said, you can earn money fast with these sites but surprisingly I don’t really recommend using too much of your time for that. The reason is that even though you can earn money very fast, your earning potential is ULTIMATELY LOW. It means that you will not earn a sufficient income with this kind of sites.
Think about PrizeRebel, for example. They have paid more than $10 million in cash and rewards for their members which sound pretty impressive. But let’s take a closer look. They have 6,519,055 community members today in 22.1.2017. If we divide $10 million by a number of members, we can find out how much approximately each member has earned using their service.
$10M / 6,519M members => $1.53 per each member! That’s so little amount of money. I really don’t want to know how much money all members have used in total to this service because their earning rate would probably be something like $1/hour on average. Or even less.
So, I don’t recommend “Get-Paid-To” -sites because they don’t have a good earning potential. I know that I could myself earn quite good money by recommending them. Because those sites also pay for each referral that I got to their sites. I know a guy who earns each month hundreds of dollars through ClixSense because he has referred it to so many people.
But I don’t recommend ClixSense to you or to anybody else because, in my opinion, your time is much more valuable than clicking ads and answering surveys. I will explain you a better way to make money online.
4 Steps to Online Success
Making money online is not complicated. I don’t say it would be easy but at least it’s not complicated but simple. Let me give you a clear formula how you can make a living online. (By the way, this is proven formula that really works. Try yourself!)
Step 1 – Choose Your Passion
What is your passion? What are you interested in? What would you like to do day in and day out with excitement?
I can’t decide it for you because you need to know it yourself. But let’s say that you like hiking. Now you have decided that and we can move to the step 2.
Hiking is an interesting niche!
Step 2 – Create a Website
If you have never created a website before, don’t worry. I have very simple step-by-step instructions how you can create a simple but high-quality website in 30 seconds. You don’t need any programming or other special skills. Just follow easy instructions and it’s done.
In our example, you create a website which is focused on hiking.
Step 3 – Attract Visitors
When you have a website, you need to put there some content. Write some texts and add pictures. Don’t worry if you don’t know how to do it yet, here is a step-by-step training how to produce user-friendly text and how to get free images online.
In our example, you would be writing texts related to hiking. The idea is that you 1.” You write a text 2.It gets ranked on Google 3.A visitor comes from Google 4.It buys a product that you are recommending 5.You earn a commission.
Your articles could be, for example
What are the best hiking shoes (for women)
What are the best waterproof hiking shoes (for men)
What is the best hiking backpack
I am not an expert of hiking but I still could make a successful online business around hiking because I know the skills on how to get ranked on Google and make money online. I know a normal guy who made a successful website about women kettlebell training. He didn’t know very much about the subject but he read on the Internet, made his “research” and promoted some kettlebell products.
Step 4 – Earn Money with Commissions
Let’s say that you have written an article, “What are the best waterproof hiking shoes for men”. Then you recommend, some hiking shoes on your site and put links to Amazon, for example. When somebody goes to Amazon and buys any product, you earn a commission.
One very good thing is that even though your visitor would buy something else on Amazon during 24 hours, you will earn a commission. Let’s say that he clicks your link of a hiking shoe but decides to buy a hiking backpack and a TV. You earn commission for both of those products.
This is called affiliate marketing. You are promoting other people’s products and earning commissions. You don’t need to have any own products. You don’t need to care about shipping, dealing with challenging customers or anything like that. And the best thing is that you can make money even when you are sleeping. You can earn money even 3 years after writing an article.
Let’s say that you write an article to your hiking website in 2017 and somebody goes to that site in 2020. He reads an article and goes to buy a product on Amazon, you still earn the commission. You can, of course, promote products from any other website than Amazon but it is just an easy example. You can quickly find 331,073 results under “hiking” -subject so there are tons of different products that you can promote.
Start your online success today.

If you have any questions about the process of making money online, don’t hesitate to leave them below. I will be more than happy to help you out!
Have you heard of the famous “For Dummies” -series? They teach you everything between the Earth and the sky. One of their books is also called, “Affiliate Marketing for Dummies”.
In this article, I am not going to talk to you about that book but I am going to teach how you can make money with affiliate marketing online like I do. I have also many friends who use the exact same 4-step process for making money with affiliate marketing and it works very well.
Affiliate Marketing for Dummies – Video Explanation
I also created an educational video where I teach you the 4 simple steps for making money with affiliate marketing. Enjoy!
I also asked my friend, Rufat, to share his tips and thoughts for beginners who want to make money online with affiliate marketing. His tips are on quotes and the rest of the text is written by me (Roope) in this article. Rufat’s website is called YourIncomeAdvisor.com and he also teaches people how they can make a living online. Let’s start with the first question.
“Affiliate marketing is promoting someone’s product or service for a commission.” -Rufat
That’s what it simply is. Let me give you one simple example. I bought recently some vitamins on the website called iHerb.com. Then I did a Facebook post where I said that I just bought vitamins on iHerb and you can buy also. I left a link to iHerb to my post. Some of my friends (I don’t even know who) went to their website and bought vitamins also and I earned commissions for that.
Or have you ever read, “Best 5 smartphones for 2018”, “Best 7 hiking shoes for 2017”, “Canon x548 review” or something similar on the Internet? People are making reviews of products and they leave a link to an online store saying, “Check out these products on Amazon!”
Then you go to Amazon, order the product and the guy who left a link earns a commission. If you want to make money online with affiliate marketing it simply works like this:
Leave a specific link. (For example to Amazon)
Somebody clicks the link.
He buys a product. (No matter what he buys if he just went to Amazon through your link.)
This is a typical 4-step process of making money with affiliate marketing.
How Much Money Can You Make with Affiliate Marketing?
“You can earn from a few bucks up to thousands of dollars per month/day.” -Rufat
One of the greatest benefits of affiliate marketing is that there isn’t an income limit. When I was younger, I was a taxi driver. I learned a few tricks on how to find a shorter route or entertain people to get some tip but the income potential was very limited. I couldn’t earn more than 25€/hour ($30/hour) and I’m talking about the maximum. Normally it was only around 10€/hour.
Income potential is much better with affiliate marketing than a typical 9-5 job. (Read my full post by clicking the picture.)
With affiliate marketing, I don’t have a similar challenge. Recently I talked in an online marketing event with a friend who was making +$200,000/month with affiliate marketing. That would never be possible with 99% of normal 9-5 jobs.
Of course, that kind of income with affiliate marketing requires years of work and doesn’t happen overnight. Most people make less money with affiliate marketing (including myself) but it really shows the potential. I make good enough money but I have seen many people failing. I have recognized most common pitfalls why people fail to make big money:
Most people don’t even try/start.
They don’t have a step-by-step training.
They try it for a little while, don’t make money and quit.
They don’t want to try new things so they only make things that make them enough to live by.
The key is just to start. I will support you hand by hand all the way to success.
Probably the most common reason why people don’t make big money with affiliate marketing is that they quit too early. It leads us to our next question:
How Long Does it Take to Make Money with Affiliate Marketing?
If you are a complete beginner, it may take a while that you start earning good money. I know some people who made their first income with affiliate marketing right away within the first week after starting but it usually takes longer to make good money like Rufat explains. It also depends on a little bit on what kind of strategy you are using.
“It really depends. Normally it takes 6 months or 1 year to start making money. But I personally made my first buck after 90 days of launching my website. Few people start making money within the first 2-3 months.” -Rufat
Some strategies can make you money during the first week but they don’t lead to a consistent income. On the other hand, other strategies may take 3-6 months but those build up your income like a snowball and over the time course, your income will exponentially grow.
Let me ask you a question:
How much time does it take to make money with a normal path? School – University – 9-5 job etc.
Most people go to a University for 3-5 years and they start making money after that. If you would commit 3-5 years for affiliate marketing like you commit to the University, most likely you’ll be making much more money afterward.
I went to a University of Applied Sciences and received a bachelor degree. Then I went to a 9-5 job for a while. However, I quickly realized that it didn’t make sense. I could earn much more money online and have more freedom than in a typical job.
I can work whenever and wherever I want.
I can make much more money online than with my 9-5 job.
I can travel around the world and go anywhere I want. (My current travel goes like this: Austria-Bulgaria-Turkey-UAE-Philippines etc.)
I enjoy what I’m doing.
This was just a dream a few years ago for me but now it’s possible. However, I usually prefer working inside than at the beach! 😉
If I will have kids in the future, I’ll rather teach them how they can make money online than go to a University. Of course, there are some exceptions like doctors but most people would love to make money online. When I explain the life I can live many people say they would like to live it as well. I’m always more than happy to help anyone who wants to learn.
What Is the Best Way to Earn with Affiliate Marketing?
“The best way is promoting digital products that pay up to 75% commission compared to physical products that normally pay up to 10%.” -Rufat
Rufat is right that digital products usually pay much bigger commissions than physical products. I’ve seen also a product that pays 100% commission for affiliate marketers. Then a company hopes that they’ll sell more products to the customer who bought the initial product.
Let’s take an example. You write to promote a book an Amazon that costs $20 and they pay you a 5% commission. You earn a $1 commission and you need to make 3,000 such book sales a month to make $3,000/month. Another person promotes a digital product that costs $200 and they pay him a 50% commission. He needs to make only 30 sales to reach the same $3,000/month.
People are also every year using more and more money on digital products so it’s a good idea to promote them. That being said, I know people who make good money also by promoting physical products. My recommendation is that you start with something that you are passionate about and most of the time money will follow. I know people who make only book reviews and they make much more money than an average person in the U.S.
Digital products pay usually highest commissions.
At this point, you may be wondering, “How can I find good digital products that I could promote?” This step-by-step training will teach you everything about that as well.
Best Tips for Beginner Affiliate Marketers
“I think the best 3 tips I can give for beginners in affiliate marketing are: Prepare to work hard and be patient until you make your first buck, make it a habit to learn new things from other successful affiliate marketers and take action on what you learn.” -Rufat
I really like Rufat’s advice. Like I mentioned above, one of the most important reasons why people fail with affiliate marketing is that they quit too easily. That’s why they never see the successful days. Sometimes the successful events are just waiting around the corner.
Another key is just to start and try new things. You can never know what affiliate marketing could bring to your life until you start. There was a good about good health and when you read half of the book and it says, “Put this book away, fall on the floor and see how many push-ups you can make. If you’re not going to try those push-ups, why don’t you just give this book away? It seems that you are not going to try anyway.”
So, the key is just to start!
How to Learn Affiliate Marketing Fast?
I talked with one of my friends about making money online and affiliate marketing. I asked her, “Why wouldn’t you learn to make money online?” She said, “Well, I don’t know how to do it. In addition, I don’t have any other friends than you who already do it.”
Actually, she was even a better position than when I was when I started. I didn’t know a single person who would make money with affiliate marketing online. I didn’t have any friends who could have taught me hand-by-hand.
However, I found a website called Wealthy Affiliate that taught me everything I needed to know about making money online with affiliate marketing. They had a step-by-step training, helpful community and tons of tools that helped me to move forward. If I got stuck, I was always able to ask more experienced people who helped me out.
Wealthy Affiliate has also taught +1,000,000 million other people all over the world on making money with affiliate marketing. One of them is Rufat who shared his knowledge in this post as well.

Languages Are Easy
My website LanguagesAreEasy.com
Niche: Language Learning/ Courses and Other Resources Type: Informational / Review Affiliate Program: Several Language Learning Products
LanguagesAreEasy.com is my own website where I teach people how to learn languages more easily while having fun. I got an idea for this website when I was thinking about things where I am good at and how I could help other people.
I realized that I have lots of knowledge about learning languages that could help other people as well.
What Makes This Site Awesome
Content is informative and helpful.
Talks for a wide range of audience.
The content is evergreen. Most principles to language learning apply even after tens of years.
How This Site Makes Me Money
I earn money by explaining about different kind of language learning courses and resources. I explain, for example, that I learned French by listening to a free podcast called Francais Authentique. I mention that I only used their resources and they were extremely helpful. Most resources are free but they also have paid courses for those who really want to take French skills to the next level.
When people go to Francais Authentique website through my link and buys something, I earn a commission. I use the same strategy with other programs as well. Actually, I don’t even need to sell anything, I just explain how programs work and people want to try them out.
HerePup.com is a classical affiliate website. The website is full of content and I believe that dog lovers can spend even hours reading their articles. They seem to target specific keywords with their posts and drive traffic from Google search.
What Makes This Site Awesome
Lots of content.
Dog lovers are often passionate about the subject.
Wide range of products in the dog industry.
How This Site Makes Money
The site has lots “the best” -articles. For example, The Best Fish Oil For Dogs (5 Highly Effective Products). Then they have listed 5 different fish oils for dogs and the reader can click their link to buy them. Another example is, “How To Crate Train A Puppy (Plus 5 Excellent Crate Options).” They seem to monetize with Chewy.com affiliate program. Chewy.com is an eCommerce for pet products.
BestLongboardReviews.net is a website with a simple idea in a specific niche. They write reviews of longboards and rank them based on different kind of factors like: Durability, weight, appearance, stability and speed.
I like the idea of the website because it’s pretty easy to create but it still can be highly profitable. Visitors can also leave their own reviews in the comments which adds value to the site.
What Makes This Site Awesome
Easy-to-navigate on the site.
Highly specific niche.
Visitors can leave reviews as well.
Simple but informational layout and articles.
How This Site Makes Money
They write reviews of every kind of longboards. Then they have links to Amazon on each article. When a visitor clicks the link and buys a longboard (or anything else on Amazon), the site owners earns a commission. We can honestly say that LongBoardReviews.net is a classical Amazon affiliate site. Notice that you don’t need to own all longboards to write reviews. You can follow my tips to make it successful and honest.
This site is extremely interesting. It’s created by Wealthy Affiliate live training coach Jay Neill. He showed on Wealthy Affiliate’s live training how he created this site in front of our eyes. Jay explained the keyword research, showed when he built everything and showed how much money he makes.
He put only very little effort on building this site but it makes him thousands of dollars every year “on autopilot” (=passive income). I think creating this site took only like a few workweeks in total. We can certainly say it was success. You can take a look at the process how Jay built the site on Wealthy Affiliate live training archive. (I’ll leave a link below.)
What Makes This Site Awesome
Building the site didn’t take much time.
The site has peaks in sales always during the Super Bowl.
The idea is pretty simple and could be applied to any other mini-niche.
How This Site Makes Money
The site shows football snack helmets of every NFL team. It just shows the basic details of the snack helmet and that’s it. Then they have a link to Amazon and when somebody goes and buys something, Jay earns a commission. A great thing with Amazon affiliate program is that he can also earn money when people buy something else. If somebody buys a TV with a snack helmet from Amazon, it means quite juicy commissions for Jay.
Top Ten Reviews is a huge affiliate marketing website.
Niche: No specific niche Type: Review Website Affiliate Program: Amazon Associates
Top Ten Review a little bit different than other in our list but it’s also a good example on how large an affiliate marketing website can grow. This website has reviews about everything between that you can imagine: Home products, health, business, outdoor, etc.
They have millions of unique visitors every month and I guess that the monthly revenue is measured in millions of ollars. They have also lots of employees who are actively testing new products and producing more content.
For a beginner it’s naturally difficult to create a site like this one but it really shows you the potential how much you can really earn with affiliate marketing. Even the sky isn’t the limit.
What Makes This Site Awesome
They have reviews about everything.
The website has a huge authority since it was founded back in 2003 and there are thousands of reviews.
Reviews are in-depth and informative.
How This Site Makes Money
The website has lots of affiliate links to Amazon. So, when people look at their reviews and go to buy something from Amazon, they earn commissions. In addition, they have for sure the highest commission rates from Amazon and from other partner sites because they have so huge volume. Top Ten Reviews also uses ads and I think they make a nice income with them as well.
I promised to show you 5 awesome examples of affiliate marketing websites but I’ll show you another one as a bonus.
A great example of a fast-growing review site is WAH Pursuit. They publish reviews of different Internet marketing & make money online programs providing the latest information for their readers.
You can check out their review of Parallel Profits to get a better idea how it looks like. They’re using a simple yet powerful layout leaving lots of white color and making their reviews easy-to-read for visitors.
Conclusion – Taking Action Is Key
You have seen these sites and probably thought in your head, “Well, I could do that as well. It’s not that complicated.” Or if you are new to affiliate marketing you are wondering how to build basic website like in these examples. The key to making money with affiliate marketing is taking action.
A few years ago I didn’t know anything about making money with affiliate marketing but a guy showed me on his website that I could make money by promoting products on Amazon and I was astonished. Then I found the Wealthy Affiliate training that taught me step-by-step how I could make money with affiliate marketing as well. I’m glad I started the training and took action because it changed my life. Now I can travel around the world while making money online. I would be more than happy to help you as well. I love to see when people succeed.

There has been lots of buzz around ClickSure during the past year. Some people are making thousands of money through their website but at the same time other people are asking, “Is ClickSure a Scam?”
In this review, I will explain how their website works and why some people say it’s a scam. I’ll also show if you can make money with ClickSure or if you should stay away from their services.
Are you ready? Fasten your seat belts. Let’s go!
Founded: Many years ago
Type: Affiliate Marketing Network. Similar to Clickbank, Clickbetter, JvZoo, etc.
Short Review: It’s possible to make money through ClickSure and their website is not a scam. They pay once you have reached their $250 minimum threshold. However, many products on their website are scams and it may be challenging to find good products to promote. I recommend using more reliable affiliate networks.
ClickSure is an online digital marketplace where product creators can submit their products for promotion and affiliates can find products that they can promote. ClickSure is like a middleman between a product owner and an affiliate.
You may have probably heard of similar services like ClickSure before. Famous marketplaces are Clickbank, JvZoo and ClickBetter for digital products. Then there are tons of affiliate marketplaces for other kind of products like ShareASale or Commission Junction (CJ).
Let me first explain how you can make money on ClickSure. Then I’ll compare it to other similar networks.
First of all, you choose what kind of products you want to promote. I recommend choosing something that interests you and you find valuable. The best product for promotion is usually something that you use yourself. However, you don’t need to be using all products yourself. But you can evaluate which ones are good and worth promoting.
When you have decided which product(s) you want to promote, you can start sharing their link. I don’t recommend just spamming the link all around the Internet because you’ll lose your reputation and usually nobody buys from spammers.
Anyhow, there’s a lot of potential with affiliate marketing and a beauty of it is that you can have even hundreds of income streams at the same time. In addition, it’s passive income so you can earn money even while you are sleeping or laying on the beach with your girlfriend.
Nothing beats the feeling of waking up and checking your email showing that you earned $175 commissions during the night! I know the feeling and I recommend it for you as well 😉
Top 3 of ClickSure’s offers. 2 of them are related to binary options which isn’t a good sign in my opinion.
How to Promote ClickSure Products?
There are basically 3 ways how you can promote your offers:
Build an audience in a social media like YouTube or Instagram and promote offer for your audience.
Build an email list and send them your offer.
I use all these strategies myself. However, I have mostly used the strategy number 1. Building your own website or a blog has several benefits. You own everything what happens on your website. If you build your business on some social media platform, you are always dependent on their moves.
Building an email list is a great strategy but you would need anyway to find a way how to get people to your list. One strategy is to create a landing page and drive traffic through paid marketing on search engines and social medias like Facebook but this strategy can be quite risky for beginners.
That’s why I recommend building out your own website and promoting products there. If you want to promote ClickSure products “OptionRobot” for example, you can write a blog post “OptionRobot Review” on your website. Then people can find there through Google and from other sources.
You can find several examples on my website. I am promoting three following products on my website and they get lots of traffic through Google:
Coinbase ($10 sign up bonus for new members. Possible to cash out immediately.)
All of these are great services, especially Coinbase. Anyone can get a free $10 immediately after joining so I can recommend it for all people easily. My own experiences with Coinbase service has been solely positive I made already lots of money through their website.
ClickSure vs Clickbank vs JvZoo
Now we come to the important question, “Is ClickSure worth it?” There are already several reliable services like Clickbank, JvzZoo and others so why to bother with Clicksure. They say that numbers speak for themselves. So, let’s have a look:
ClickSure numbers are pretty impressive!
We can’t deny that ClickSure has achieved lots of success during the years. They need to do something right to achieve so big results. However, that’s not the whole story.
Many shady products that are not approved on reliable networks like Clickbank end up on ClickSure. That’s why some people claim that even 90% of their all products are scams.
When I look at ClickSure products I need to admit that most of them are at least very suspicious and shady. They are promising 1k daily profits for their users or something similar. There are lots of binary option products. I am not a big fan of binary options myself because most products on that industry are scams and it’s gambling anyway.
All in all, I would personally stay away from such offers that fill these 5 scam signs. A big part of ClickSure products have big red flags on their products, so why bother? There’s a much more stable way to make a good income online. You can learn more by clicking the picture below:

ClickSure Reviews & Complaints
ClickSure has a bad reputation among online marketers. Many successful marketer is staying away from their website because they don’t want to be involved with scam products. Even though ClickSure wouldn’t be a scam itself there are lots of products in their network that are scams.
ClickSure pays honestly their affiliates as many people report they’ve already cashed out thousands of dollars from this website. But you need to keep in mind that they have a relatively high cash out threshold of $250.
Several ClickSure complaints mention also a high percentage of refunds. You know how frustrating it is to earn hundreds of dollars commissions and then realize that they all are taken from you because the clients took refunds.
What is the reason for a high refund rate on ClickSure?
As I mentioned above, most of their products are scams. When people realize that they’ve been scammed they naturally want their money back. Anyway, what’s the point of promoting scam products? I would never do it. You would lose your reputation and credibility right away.
Conclusion – Is ClickSure a Scam?
ClickSure is not a scam because they pay honestly for their members and keep their promises. However, many people claim that 90% of products in their network are scams. That’s why I recommend just staying away from their website.
As I said in my ClickBetter Review, it’s better to stick with more reliable affiliate marketing networks like Clickbank. However, most of the time I don’t even use affiliate networks at all because most companies have their independent affiliate program. Otherwise, they would need to pay a little fee for the network for managing their program.
I am still offering 1-on-1 support for all my readers who want to be successful with affiliate marketing.
Success takes lots of hard work and discipline. But it’s worth it.
Do You Want Quick Wins Or Long Term Success?
Do you want to earn $1,000 now or do you want to maintain your honest reputation and build a successful multi million dollar business? That’s a big question to ask when you are choosing what kind of products you want to promote as an affiliate.
I have seen some websites all products that they possibly can. They make a review and praise every single product. I contacted the website owner and asked why they are doing it. I was surprised to get an honest answer. He said, “I want to earn money by recommending these products.”
However, that’s a big challenge. He isn’t thinking about the best of his audience but he is only thinking about money. That kind of attitude doesn’t lead to a long-term success. It can give him $100 here and $500 there but when people realize this guy isn’t honest, they flee quickly.
When I saw his website I decided that I would never buy from such guy.
Building a successful online business takes time but it’s definitely worth it. Results add up like a snowball over the time course. You will see exponential leaps in your traffic and income when you move forward. The beauty of online marketing is that the scalability is literally infinite. There’s no limit on how many people you can reach and how much you can earn.
But the more honest and the more value you provide, the more successful you will be. Provide value more than anyone. That’s the fastest way to succeed.
I hope you enjoyed reading my ClickSure Review and discussion on promoting products as an affiliate marketer. Now I would love to hear from you.

Note: This review is written by YourOnlineRevenue.com team member.
Fizzle System Review
Name: Fizzle Website: www.fizzle.co Founded in: 2012 Price: Two Weeks Trial, Premium for $35/month Or $315/year Owners: Corbett Barr
Founders, of course, say that their program is the best. In my opinion, Wealthy Affiliate is the best blogging training online.
What Is Fizzle All About?
Fizzle is a program that helps people to make money independently by following their course. This is a good way for an indie businessman to follow their step by step training to be successful. There are a lot of people who want to run an online business but they do not know how to start with some good ways. Fizzle is coming to help you deal with it.
As we can see that Fizzle provides a professional website with all detailed information and it also shows the profiles of the owners. Therefore, it can be said that Fizzle is legal and no scam at all. It seems that Corbett Barr builds this website seriously because he also has a team that consists of several persons.
They teach how you can make good money with blogging. As you may know, it can be a very profitable way of making money online. Pat Flynn is making hundreds of thousands of dollars every month and some of my friends are making +$10,000/month. Remember that all of them have started without any experience. Everybody needs to start somewhere. Then little by little income starts growing when you provide more value and keep on learning.
What does Fizzle make?
Fizzle is course product to train everybody to create an online business. Fizzle is not only a course but it is a community website with more than 5,000 members along with hundreds of independent entrepreneurs who earn money from a wide variety of businesses.
It has a community to help people find some support, ideas, and inspirations from others. Fizzle provides weekly articles for those who need some information about various contents relating to marketing, business, product making, content marketing, social media, and much more. There are also some weekly podcasts that you can subscribe directly from the website.
Who is Fizzle for?
Fizzle is built for all of the people who want to earn money and increase their incomes from their business. There is no specific business field, but it is all about business that everybody may have. Fizzle will only give some help to you and they will tell you some secrets the best way to be an independent entrepreneur.
It seems that their course is created for somebody who already has some experience of blogging and making money online. If you are still struggling to make money online or you are a beginner, I recommend taking Wealthy Affiliate step-by-step training. You can create a free account and get 20 interactive video lessons as a gift.
Wealthy Affiliate has also 170 times bigger community that Fizzle which tells that it’s a bigger thing. WA-service is also 9 years older than Fizzle so they have had an opportunity to develop their training, platform, support, and community already for much longer time.
How Does Fizzle Work?
First, you can have two weeks free trial in Fizzle. So, you can get a free access to see some courses. However, you will need to fill out all of your information and credit card details to get that free trial. Then you need to remember to cancel your membership before they start billing you.
There will be some videos for your training and all of those videos are taught by professionals. There are also some live coaching sessions, step by step plan, and you can also have an access to the community where there are more than a thousand independent entrepreneurs.
A very famous Internet marketer Pat Flynn (Smart Passive Income) is also teaching in Fizzle training
Is the 2-Week Trial Completely Free?
As it is mentioned, this trail from Fizzle is totally free and there is no hidden cost at all for two weeks. It is just two week and after you get some free courses in two weeks. If you don’t cancel your membership after two weeks, they will start billing you $35/month or $315/year. This is a premium offer to access all of the services including roadmap, courses, coaching, and community.
Notice that a premium membership is not a one-time payment, but you need to pay each month for the service. If you continue with a monthly plan for 10 months, the price will be already $350. So, if you are planning to have their membership for a longer time, I would recommend going for a yearly account after a free trial.
Fizzle is a course program targeted for people who want to succeed online but it is not free. The free trial is necessary for those who wonder if Fizzle a Scam or Legit. Once you pay the service, then you will get all courses. You will also get an access to the community forum, in person events, weekly live coaching session, perks, accountability, and much more. Everything will begin step by step in order to reach what you want to achieve.
Pros and Cons of Fizzle
– Fizzle provides 2 weeks free trial.
– Access to all materials within a trial.
– Fizzle has so many active communities.
– Fizzle provides step by step training.
– The CEO is really serious in providing services.
– You cannot make money from Fizzle but Fizzle helps you to earn it with their principles.
– Users cannot contact the CEO directly.
Conclusion – Is Fizzle a Scam or Legit?
Fizzle is a legitimate online business course created by successful Internet marketers. These guys have for sure lots of useful tips how anyone can learn to build a successful online business. They have many famous names like Pat Flynn in their team.
Still, Wealthy Affiliate is my #1 recommendation. There you can have a free membership for a lifetime instead of only 14 days. In addition, WA community is much bigger and they provide many tools to boost your online business like a keyword tool, SiteSpeed, and SSL for your website. Domain hosting is also included in a premium membership of Wealthy Affiliate.
Their training works very well for total beginners as well as for more experienced online entrepreneurs. Even though I have already lots of experience in making money online, I am planning to go through their training again to refresh my memory and to have new ideas. I know many people who started in Wealthy Affiliate without any prior experience but are nowadays making a full-time income online. Almost every day I see another guy who did it.
You may have seen lots of highly biased reviews of Affiliate Takeover on the Internet. Those guys have joined Affiliate Takeover affiliate program in JvZoo and they are earning commissions for selling the product for you. My review is totally unbiased and I am not part of their affiliate program.
I know that I could earn some money by promoting this program but my intention is to give you the most unbiased answer that you can find. I hope you will enjoy this review!
The Affiliate Takeover Review
Name: Affiliate Takeover Website: www.AffiliateTakeover.net Price: $17,43 + Upsells Founders: Lenny, Adam, and Gary Field: Affiliate Marketing Training -Programs
1.Pick the product to review 2.Make reviews that rank #1 and #2 on Google and on Youtube
Increased traffic will lead to bigger commissions and income. Let me explain how their methods work:
How Does Affiliate Takeover Work?
They recommend you to choose products that will be launched soon so there will not be much competition. It will help you to get ranked higher on Google. The more competition there is for a certain product or a keyword the more challenging it will be to get ranked.
On the other hand, less competition => better rankings more easily for you.
Then they teach you to make a video which ranks on Youtube so you will get ranked with a video and with a text.
What Don’t I Like in Affiliate Takeover?
Affiliate Takeover provides some very practical tips for a low price. However, there’s something that I don’t like in their marketing strategy.
First of all, they let you understand that it’s very easy to dominate the competition and get high rankings on Google and Youtube. The reality is that success with affiliate marketing requires lots of dedication and hard work. It’s possible to earn 10 or even 100 times more than in a normal 9-5 job but it, for sure, requires lots of work.
Getting traction on Google takes usually at least 3-6 months. And then over the time course, you will get more and more authority if you keep on producing content. It doesn’t happen in a second. But once it happens the fun part starts and +$10,000/month income becomes possible.
Second, they have upsells that they don’t mention in the beginning. It’s a very typical strategy for Internet marketing products but it’s not 100% honest. They sell you a product and say that this is all you need to succeed. But after you have bought it, they show you another product saying, “You can’t succeed/live without this another product.” It’s quite misleading marketing.
Affiliate Takeover Upsells
Affiliate Takeover has two upsells that both are more than 2,5 times more expensive than the initial product. You pay $17 for the first product and $47 for the each upsell. The total cost of their training is then $111.
1.Ranking With Videos Case Studies: $47
In the first upsells they show you two case studies how they get ranked on high on Google and Youtube with videos. The question arises, is it worth it to pay $47 for two case studies? You can probably find similar tutorials on Youtube for free. What do you think?
2.Email Mastery 10x Formula: $47
In the second upsell they teach you how to do effective email marketing. You are building a list and promoting products for them in this training.
I think that Affiliate Takeover upsells are not worth it. They should have been included in the real product or at least told in the beginning when you are making a purchase. Unfortunately, sometimes Internet marketing gurus dehumanize the process and are just trying to make the most money out of the people.
Is the value of this “bonus” really $97?
Who is Affiliate Takeover For?
In my opinion, Affiliate Takeover would be optimal for affiliate marketers who have already some experience and are willing to invest extra bucks for your online business to get a few new ideas. However, you don’t get the whole course for $17. You will need to invest $111 to get everything that they are selling.
They are offering some bonuses but as you may know, bonuses are sometimes just a marketing trick to get you to buy the product.
If you are a beginner with affiliate marketing, I don’t recommend trying this product. They trick you believe it would be easier than it is. I remember the first time when I started affiliate marketing. I thought like this, “Okay, I will make a few reviews and I will automatically get ranked on Google. Then the income starts flowing in.”
The training gives you creative and practical ideas on how to get ranked on Google and Youtube
Product is not very expensive
Shady marketing with upsells
Lets you understand that success would happen more quickly than it really happens
Lots of highly biased reviews of this program on the Internet
Conclusion – Is Affiliate Takeover a Scam?
Affiliate Takeover is not a scam because they are teaching strategies that can really work. However, if you want to succeed online wit affiliate marketing, I recommend you to taking a closer at Wealthy Affiliate training.
WA is a step-by-step training that teaches you much more broadly how you can really have a successful affiliate marketing business. The great thing in WA is that they concentrate on providing the best value. They are constantly developing their services to make them even better.
Become a part of the community of 850,000 Internet marketers
1-on-1 support from me and other successful affiliate marketers
Weekly live training
This is just a small part of all things that you will get in WA. It’s also 100% free to get started. With a free membership, you will immediately get 20 interactive video lessons and 2 high-quality websites. Comparing Affiliate Takeover and Wealthy Affiliate is like comparing David and Goliath.
