Hello Jack. I trust all is well with you. Please help me with a question I have. I would like to join wealthy affiliate after reading about your experiences with said company. I am new and know nothing about this business venture. I think, if I am correct being an affiliate is you are selling something on-line to the on-line public. And then you receive a commission for your sale. What I would like to know is after joining WA and studying their programs, you are set up and ready to go, where do you go to find products to promote and sell? And how do you know what products to promote? Is it like guessing , such as I think this product sounds like it ought to sell well and so on… please answer this one question. T hanks Jack. Have a good day I reside in Vancouver, British Columbia CANADA.
Pay-per-click advertising is the easiest way to get traffic to a brand-new site. It has two advantages over waiting for the traffic to come to you organically. First, PPC ads show up on the search pages immediately, and second, PPC ads allow you to test different keywords, as well as headlines, prices and selling approaches. Not only do you get immediate traffic, but you can also use PPC ads to discover your best, highest-converting keywords. Then you can distribute the keywords throughout your site in your copy and code, which will help your rankings in the organic search results.

The tweaks to Wix.com’s marketing approach follows the addition of these products, with the company aiming to boost its presence on Twitter and LinkedIn with a mix of paid and earned media. While LinkedIn has been part of its marketing mix for some time, it was a smaller percentage. Now, it is more of a focus with the company spending more and posting more product updates on its blog, slideshows about its marketing tools and questions to drive engagement on the platform.
It’s a constant learning process Shahbaz. And, you can work on the courses at your own convenience. Some people take 3 months to complete and some takes a year. It’s really up to you. Well the course teaches you how to make money, and some people took a week to earn their first dollar, some people took 3 to 4 months (I did), some took 6 to 12 months and some don’t make any money.
Jack, my hat is off to you for your online success. I had heard about Wealthy Affiliate a few years ago, but never pursued it due to the need for more immediate income at the time. I had forgotten all about it until I recently became interested in affiliate marketing again. After finding a few scammers in the space, I came across Wealthy Affiliate again. Right away, I knew WA was the real deal and a great choice, so I proceeded to give it a test drive by signing up for the free account. I totally expected to upgrade quickly, but wanted to have a look around to be absolutely sure before upgrading to a premium account. After signing in, I was shocked to read the following statement on the next page, “Free Starter accounts are not available in your country, but we would love to have you as a Premium Member!”. Please understand that I am not sharing this to trash WA in any way, but I feel that others should be aware that there are exceptions to the free trial. I am an American who happens to be traveling abroad, so unfortunately due to geo-tracking, the country I am currently visiting is being blocked from their free trial offer. I’m not a “Cheap Charlie” and not just looking for freebies, but this experience has caused me to reconsider whether I should join WA as a premium paid member without trying it before I buy it. It should also be noted that I was brought to the checkout page to pay first and the only option I was given was the annual payment @ $359.
If you want the full story, you can check out my about me page (it’s a pretty cool story if I may say so myself). The short version is that I got started with affiliate marketing back in 2009 and was able to go full-time in 2011. I now own more than a dozen websites in several different niche industries. You can see a listing of most of my sites at RogersConcepts.com.

One thing I don’t like is that Wealthy Affiliate mainly focuses on beginner to intermediate trainings. While this makes sense as the vast majority of Wealthy Affiliate members are brand new to the industry, I would also love to see some more advanced training provided for those of us with a decade of experience in the industry. Sometimes even the pros like to be challenged!
If you add up all the services you get, the premium membership is a steal. For example, you’ll notice they include unlimited keyword research with a membership. Other paid keyword research tools sell for $49 or more just by themselves. Add in website hosting, and there’s another $10 / mo. Add on the website security package, and there’s another $10 per month (I’ve paid as much as $29 / mo just for website security). Just based on those things alone, Wealthy Affiliate is a great deal with all of the resources and tools you need in one convenient place. Not to mention all of the training, tutorials, and support that is included with the membership.
