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 7 websites, and one of them is about spirituality for kids, idealistic, a “call from the heart” website, 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.

    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

    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

    Great article, tons of valuable information here. Depending on which route you want to take ­ some are obviously better than others. In my opinion you want to build a business that’s long-term, sustainable, and actually gives you the freedom you want! (that’s why we ALL want more money, right?)

    Probably the most effective way to do this is affiliate marketing. There’s tons of great free training out there, and you can literally turn your passion into a paycheck ­ if you’re willing to work for it that is.

    Once again great article, and following the blog for more awesome content.
