Wealthy Affiliate FAQs

Wealthy Affiliate FAQs – Affiliate Marketing

What is Affiliate Marketing?

Affiliate Marketing is the promotion of products for companies by placing ads on your website and writing reviews for products.

Is it easy to become an affiliate for a company?

Most companies are glad you want to place a banner ad on your website, and they are willing to pay you a percentage commission for every sale you mediate. To be clear, when the subject of your website is pets, it will be most likely a company rejects your mediation for selling clothes.

Where do you get the products?

In fact, you review products and place ads for companies. The selling/buying and delivery of the products is not your responsibility. When a purchase is made you get a notice from the company and are paid commission.

Affiliate Marketing


How high is the commission companies will pay?

That can vary from 2% until almost 50%

How long does it take to make money?

Some have their first sale within a month.
That is depending on how much time you put in and in which niche you are promoting and how.
Expensive holidays and wines will likely attract more customers from promoting at rotary clubs than on Ebay.
I have 5 websites, and one of them is about spirituality for kids, idealistic, a “call from the heart”  which does sell a book once in a while. This website will not bring me financial growth, but I love my “baby”.
It depends on a lot of factors. But there is a whole community waiting to help you with ideas.

How are you going to advertise and how much does this cost?

The lessons are based on learning how to structure your website, so it will become visible at Google/Bing and other  search engines. That way you get more and more visitors to your website and more chances products will be purchased via your banners. There are also tutorials to teach you how to spread your content on all different social media sites, like twitter, G+, and Facebook. This system is free of any charge.

Can you make money as a free member?

Yes, you can, because your future affiliate partners will pay your commission for every purchase made via your website. That stands apart from your Wealthy Affiliate membership. You also can earn-while-you-learn on Wealthy Affiliate, only the commission is 100% higher for premium members.

Can I really make money online?

I do, so you can do it too. I use various ways to make money online. I promote products. I promote companies with affiliate programs and I promote Wealthy Affiliate.

Has Wealthy Affiliate its own affiliate program?

Yes, and it is one of the best affiliate programs online.

Wealthy Affiliate FAQs

What is a realistic money goal?

The Wealthy Affiliate referral program pays recurring commission, as explained in the graphic at the previous question. Besides the income you can earn from referrals, we also teach you to generate income from affiliate ads.

Wealthy Affiliate FAQs – You

What is expected from you?

The program works for everybody the same, but not everybody works the same. Follow the lessons step-by-step, do not skip any, give it time, and keep growing. So will your website grow and your income grow.

How long does it take to build a website?

To set up the base of a website will take about 1-3 weeks, then comes the building of it, and I know from experience, a website is never finished 🙂 We will teach you how to write content and more content = more visitors = more income.

How to find a niche?

It is very important to realize which market you are going to conquer. Tablets, telephones, pets supplies, health products, clothing, shoes, there are hundreds of niches you can choose. I advise you to pick the niche closest to your heart. People can tell from a distance if you are in business for the money or in business with your heart.

How many websites am I allowed to own?

You are allowed to host 25 siterubix.com’s and 25 owned domain name websites. And that is almost unlimited. Most hostings allow a max of 5 websites. But that amount is unfeasible to handle. You better focus yourself on one or a few websites. One terrific website can bring in hundreds of dollars too.

How much time will it take to get my website ranked on page #1 on Google?

That is totally related to the niche you are into, the content you have written and your own activity. But also, the age of your website is important. Most daily blog posted active websites will score the #1 page of Google after publishing for 3 months in a row. Therefore, a lot of people are doing the 30 challenge. Place one blog post every day during a month.

What happens when I want to leave and take my website to another host?

Wealthy Affiliate will host your website for 30 days beyond the cut-off date, which gives you time to still work on it and move it to another host in the meantime.

How do I get started?

Click here to find all information to get started.

I know nothing about the internet, I have to begin from scratch, can I do it?

The lessons are in writing and displayed with step-by-step videos. Easy to follow instructions will guide everybody forward. The more advanced can probably skip some of the videos, for them the text will be sufficient.

Wealthy Affiliate FAQs – domain names and keyword tools

What is the benefit of my own domain name?

Having your own domain name makes it easier to move your site to new hosting. Also adds value & credibility. Owning your own domain is an asset, something you can sell if you want to. Your own domain name conveys a more permanent presence on your site as you grow your audience

Is the domain name included in WA premium?

The siterubix.com domain names are included, but when you want your own domainname.com you can purchase one on Namecheap.

What is Jaaxy?

Jaaxy is the world’s No. 1 keyword tool and is owned by Kyle and Carson

Is Jaaxy part of the WA premium?

No, Jaaxy is not included and has a membership of its own and its own affiliate program. Every new Jaaxy member gets 30 free searches to experience the value of this tool

Does Wealthy Affiliate have its own free keyword tool?

Yes and no, the keyword tool on Wealthy Affiliate is free for premium members. Free members have 30 free searches.

How does the Google ranking system work and where can I check this?

On one of my tutorials, this Google ranking system has been explained.

Look for more Google features on my Amazing website tools page.

  1. JEFF says:

    Loes –

    I understand the necessary effort required for a good start up and continuing momentum. My questions, as a retiree with ‘some’ time on my hands:

    1. What’s a reasonable, minimum BALLPARK TOTAL HOURS GUESSTIMATE for the necessary training, etc. required to get up to speed and actually earning a regular and steady monthly income?

    2. Once up and running, can a WA endeavor pay off if earnestly working at and on it for 10-15 HOURS PER WEEK (versus ‘full-time’)?

    • Loes says:

      Hi Jeff, I understand your question, but there isn’t a clear and definite answer to that. That depends on many factors. When your business is running, you can maintain your website within 10-15 hours a week, that’s very reasonable. You ask me if it’s possible to earn a regular income. It is, I have a lot of friends in WA who have accomplished that. And I will be honest with you, there are also people struggling.

      I will explain to you the factors. Some people have already Social Media accounts with lots of followers and opportunities, some start with no knowledge of Social Media at all. You understand that makes a huge difference. Another factor is peoples writing skills. Not everyone is a gifted writer. And some create within a week a very professional website, others just do not have a great feeling for colors and appearances.

      Also, the choice of the niche you want to promote is an important factor. The willingness to learn new stuff, and the way you implement it.
      Some finish the certification course within a month, others take their time and work on it for more than 6 months.

      I hope you understand that I can not guarantee a steady monthly income, I do not know anything about your circumstances, your way of working or your social environment.

      One thing is sure, the course is created for success and is for everybody the same. Many succeeded, and so can you.

      I wish you all the success in the world, Loes

  2. Katerina says:

    Hello there! What happens if you are from a country that doesn’t have PayPal? Are there any other options for payments? I would really like to take up this opportunity if there are other payment options. Thanks, and look forward to hearing from you soon.

    • Loes says:

      Hi Katerina, that’s nice:) I know there are possibilities, credit card is allowed also. In rare cases, when both options are not available, you can contact Kyle (the owner) at the forum, in person, to ask for a special treatment, I hope I can welcome you at Wealthy Affiliate. The first 7 days you’ll have a totally free premium access anyway. Time enough to arrange something. Kind regards, Loes

  3. Carrie Riebold says:

    Hi, I was about to join your program until i read reviews saying you don’t allow MLM businesses. I understand not wanting scam business, but the one i am working for is called Make Wealth Real. It is definitely not a scam as i have personal friends in it that have made alot of money easily and the program is easy to use and the things they promote are actually working programs like AAA, tax return, vacation benefits, grocery coupons ect. It would not give your company a bad name as it is a reputable company for many years growing fast. I have been with this business since Dec 2016 and just have a hard time trying to sell face to face. Can u please take my business into consideration and review it yourself? If u can let me promote it i would love to work with you and would love to promote your business as a helpful tool. I think your business is great and have done alot of research on it. I only work for businesses that are reputable and truthful. Thank you,
    Carrie Riebold

    • Loes says:

      Hi Carrie, you must have misread some things. I will explain to you the best I can. Wealthy Affiliate is an education platform where we teach people how to develop and monetize a website. You are (almost) totally free to fill in your website the way you want to. As long it’s legal. There are some businesses not allowed. 18+ erotic websites are one of those. Illegal is, of course, also not allowed. Wealthy Affiliate itself has not an MLM system. In all other cases, you are free to promote want you to want on your website. The Wealthy Affiliate environment is totally spamming free. So, when you decide to join our faculty, to learn how to monetize a website, you are definitely not allowed to promote your MLM business amongst the other students. You will be suspended if you do this.

      I hope this explain enough to you, perhaps we’ll meet each other at the Wealthy Affiliate premises, kind regards, Loes
