Affiliate Tools and Resources
Wealthy Affiliate make it really easy to promote its platform by giving you the resources you need to plan and manage your promotions.
If you click on the $ sign, you will get the drop-down menu as in photo above.
Then, if you click on the Program Details, you get these options:
Some options are as in the first menu, with the addition of the option to track your links.
You are also given you own affiliate link which you can use whenever you'd like to invite someone to WA, or to promote it on your website or social media.
This is a part of the platform where you can keep track of your communication with your referrals. Besides the messages, you have the opportunity to comment on your referral's posts and to encourage them to make progress in their training or the development of their business.
This, in fact, is way of helping your referral with whatever challenges they might be facing in building their online presence. By doing this you're establishing the trust and increasing the likelihood of them upgrading to Premium.
Here you can track your traffic on your WA profile and your content.
You can clearly see all the activity regarding your referrals, upgrades, entry points, percentages and many more useful features.

Use Other Member's Content for Promotion!
Yes, you read it right.
You can use any article or training written here on the Wealthy Affiliate Platform to promote it.
What you need to do is use your own affiliate link for that article.
It can be found at the top of each article.
If you are sharing your own content you don't need to use this affiliate link, your content link will automatically be counted as your affiliate link.
I find this very useful when promoting WA.
You can use it as an incentive for sign ups. Or share it as content for your Instagram or FB posts.
Note: Some training is not available to the FREE Starter Members, and you should always state this to avoid confusion. However, there is so much that is available to the FREE members, that there isn't anything to feel bad about being upfront with this info.
My Favourite Cookie!
Which one is that you might be asking?
Well, since I'm an affiliate marketer - a Lifetime one, of course! (aaaand all the ones in the photo above!)
And that is exactly what you get here at WA.
Once someone signs up via your affiliate link, they are your referral forever.
Jaaxy is a free keyword search (and so much more) tool, we get here at WA.
If you connect your affiliate account to Jaaxy, your referrals will automatically be Jaaxy referrals too.
To make sure your WA account is connected to your Jaaxy account, go to General Settings and check this link:
If your link doesn't look similar to this one, please click on Research and then on Jaaxy Dashboard.
Then, click on (Jaaxy) Affiliate Program
Get your affiliate link here:
Now with your accounts connected you will get your commissions when someone upgrades from their Lite Jaaxy account to Pro or Enterprise.
And, this is how much you can earn when your referrals upgrade:
Note: I learned about connecting Jaaxy to WA from Reyhana - Thank You!
Wealthy Affiliate's Pay Out Structure
One of the great things about WA's affiliate program is that you can promote it for FREE.
You don't need to pay to play but can start with your campaigns as soon as you sign up as a FREE Starter Member.
As a Premium member you earn:
$8 for the first month of your referral's upgrade
$23.50p/m from then on
$175 if they pay yearly
FREE Starter members earn exactly half these amounts for their referrals.
You earn $1 every time your Starter referrals fill in their profile, upload a profile photo and post their money goals.
And, you also earn every time your referral buys a domain name through WA platform.
Promoting Wealthy Affiliate is easy not only because it is a truly fantastic place that over-delivers on every single aspect of what it offers, but it also gives its affiliates the tools and the training to do so with confidence.
I cannot recommend it enough and the number of people who are succeeding in earning their livelihoods through promoting WA is a proof enough in itself.
If you haven't started yet, I encourage you to start recommending WA on your blog, YouTube Channel, Social Media, via Paid Advertising to reach your income goals.
