My WA Affiliate Commission Report For September 2018

blog cover image

Hey everyone! I'm back with my latest WA commission report. September treated me VERY well as a WA Affiliate. I got to wake up this morning to this email from PayPal:

Sheesh, nearly $1,000 per week promoting WA?!? Things just keep growing and growing. In case you missed them, here are my prior WA commission reports:

$2,301 in June
$3,145 in July
$3,648 in August

I was only $1.50 short of making $4,000 this month... so close! With that said, I'm confident I will make more than $4,000 in October. This month has already started off with a bang. My dashboard is currently showing this for JUST TODAY!

But you know what? Let's make today even better. I have a bunch of credits that I haven't converted into cash yet. Let's do that now...

Much better! :)

I've now made more than $350 this month, and it's the first day of the month! Just incredible. I remember when making that much money in a week was a good week for me.

Comparing September Stats

As usual, I like to compare stats to the previous month. Here's how things went down:

Clicks: 3,596 (-166)
Unique Clicks: 2,525 (+141)
New Sales: 51 (+1)
Recurring Sales: 98 (+9)
Yearly Resubscriptions: 5 (+1)
Total New Referrals (free account): 428 (-3)
Referral Upgrade Percentage: 11% (no change)
Referral Credits: $163 (+$5)

Total Commissions: $3,998.50 (+$350)

My takeaway from these stats? Things remained pretty flat. The only real reason I saw my commission increaes is due to more recurring sales, but I've got to step things up by increasing the number of new sales. I have a content strategy to make that happen, but it will take a couple months to fully roll out.

Made It To Vegas!!

As if a nearly $4,000 paycheck wasn't awesome enough, I also made it to the WA Vegas Super Affiliate Conference! Woo Hoo! If you haven't seen it, I created a post about that here.

It seems like there will be a great group this year, and I won't be the only new face there. I'm so looking forward to chatting with other successful affiliate marketers. We're hard to find in the wild!

Additional Revenue

While I have several websites, this commission report is just for the site I have that promotes WA. In addition to WA commissions, I also earned from a couple other sources as well.



So, just this ONE website in my portfolio earned me $5,454.12 That's about $65,000 per year if nothing changes. I mean, that's a pretty damn good living if I may say so myself! That's more than I made as a truck driver by nearly $20,000, except I'm not away from home 6 weeks at a time.

Your Support Has Been AMAZING!!

I really want to thank everyone here for the support you've shown me over the past several months. My Vegas post had over 200 comments congratulating me, in addition to the private messages I received from so many of you. This community is so amazing and one of the reasons I love WA so much Thank you all so much for your kindness and continued support. It means a lot to me, and I hope these posts provide some inspiration. Yes, it really IS possible to earn great money through affiliate marketing!!

Now, go get your slice of the pie, there's plenty to go around! :)

Well done Mike you deserve your success.

Thank you so much! :)

Hi Mike,

It is really wonderful to see your results I am truly grateful that you posted them as it is very encouraging for me.

All the best for your continued success.


So glad this is encouraging for you Ana. Thank you for your kind words! :)

Hi Mike, This is inspiring, not for the money you make but how you pulled yourselves up out of the debt and continued marching towards a fulfilling life. I believe money is a by-product of hard/smart work and plenty of persistence and determination. Keep inspiring us.


Let me tell you... before I started my business I was truly at rock bottom. I was completely depressed and even borderline suicidal (although I could never actually go through with that).

At the time, the way I saw it, this was the ONLY solution for me. Failure wasn't an option. I planned on it taking 5 years before I could even think about quitting my job. Fortunately, that came much earlier. I've noticed that this type of story is so common among successful affiliate marketers. Most seemed to overcome big obstacles in their life before they found success.

While not true for everyone unfortunately, for me, the light shined through the darkness. I am incredibly fortunate to have dug myself out of that nightmarish hole and I'm thankful every single day.

Sorry to get so personal there! I just want others to know, if they are in a dark place, things can get better.

Thank you for your kind words and I wish you nothing but the best. Feel free to reach out anytime!! :)

Wow Mike, this is so cool!! Sure puts the rest the argument some people give that the market for promoting WA is oversaturated. Way to go!!

Well, there's a ton of competition to promote WA for sure. I don't even really know why my site ranks so highly for very profitable search terms.

For example, I rank #1 for Wealthy Affiliate Review. There are hundreds, if not thousands of sites that have reviews of Wealthy Affiliate... and GOOD reviews, too! Why do I get to rank #1? I honestly have no idea, and that's the complete truth. I just write the articles and post them. It almost doesn't even seem fair sometimes. I know how hard so many people are working to rank for WA related search terms, and I honestly feel kinda bad sometimes because I don't know what I'm doing differently.

Even if you type in Wealthy Affiliate my site is the first result after WA themselves. Same for Wealthy Affiliate Scam - I rank #1. Again, I don't really know why this is the case, but it has no doubt been the reason I've earned this type of commission.

I'm very thankful, and I'll enjoy it while it lasts. I doubt it'll last forever, but I will certainly be grateful while I have these high rankings.

Thanks for the positive feedback, much appreciated and best of luck to you!!

HI Mike I'm so happy for you keep up the goodgood work

Thank you so much!! :)

Absolutely Vicki! And please feel free to message me anytime! Affiliate Marketing has brought so much joy into my life, I just want others to experience the same thing. I have some upcoming blog post ideas I think you'll like. :)

WOW! You have done really well! I would love to be earning that right now, but I need to put in the work and with your September commissions, it shows that you've definitely put in the time and effort to make those commissions a reality! Thank you so much for sharing that and congratulations on making it to Las Vegas!

Thank you so much! It has indeed taken a lot of work to get here, but when it pays off it's so worth it!
