How much money can you make with wealthy affiliate?

Last Update: Dec 7, 2016


Over the past months I have been asked several times, how much money can you make with Wealthy Affiliate? Just over a year ago, I was one of those people too! When you are working hard on your online business, or even when you haven't yet started, its natural to wonder if its all going to be worth it. So, whilst its impossible to say how much money each individual will make with Wealthy Affiliate, I just wanted to try and show you what is possible, even in a short amount of time. I also wanted to give you some tips that have helped me to earn more money online too.

I have a feeling that this might be a long post today...

The Impossible Question - How Much Money Can You Make With Wealthy Affiliate

This really is an impossible question to answer as there are so many factors that come into play. The amount of money that you earn with Wealthy Affiliate is determined by the niche that you choose to base your online business on. Secondly it's dependent on the audience that is going to be viewing your website.

One of the things that makes the Wealthy Affiliate training work is the fact that we are all working on something different. If we all followed the same pattern and all based our business on the same thing, then we would all be in competition with each other.

Quite often the niche websites that make the most money are the ones that have found their own little corner, away from everyone else, and away from all the competition.

This is important, especially when you site is new. In the beginning although your intentions might be good, nobody will trust you. Google especially!

So how much money could you make with Wealthy Affiliate??

It would be easy for me to sit here and tell you that you can make a certain amount of money with Wealthy Affiliate. Sure, your business might make $2000 per month within the first year, it might make $5000! The truth is, YOU write your own paycheck with Wealthy Affiliate. My best months so far have been around the $4000 mark. But there are people here that follow the same training as everyone else who make double that and far more on a regular monthly basis!

The One Thing That Makes All The Difference

There is one thing that sets apart those people that earn more money from those people that earn none. And that's simply down to hard work in most cases!

One of the things that I really like about Wealthy Affiliate is the fact that they give you EVERYTHING that you need to create a successful online business. However, the one thing that they can't give you is time and effort.

A Couple Few Examples Of What You Can Earn With Wealthy Affiliate

In this blog post I wanted to show you a couple of examples of money that I have earned over the last month and how you can do the same within time. Sometimes if we look at things in a slightly different way it can make all the difference. Let me show you what I mean...

Here are two examples of money that I have make with the Wealthy Affiliate training over the last month...

Example 1 - Small Amounts Over And Over Again!

Here we can see that I have been paid some small amounts of money. These small amounts of money trickle directly into my PayPal account quite regularly.

And here is another example, also from last month...

Example 2 Showing a much larger one off payment

You will notice that in the second example, those small amounts are still being paid into my account on a regular basis, but there is also a much larger amount for $498.50. I believe there are a couple of things that you can learn from these examples and I'm going to tell you why...

Am I Doing The Right Thing? Where Am I Going Wrong?

A lot of people wonder if they are doing something wrong when they don't see money coming into their account. I can assure you that the Wealthy Affiliate training will point you in the right direction to making as much money as you wish. The only thing that stands between you earning what you desire is training, time, effort and perhaps a couple of tweaks...

The Missing Elements To Online Success

So what's the difference between an online business that makes money and one that makes nothing? Let me give you my opinion.

This is what has worked for me so far.

I follow a routine that can be summed up in 4 words...

  • Plan
  • Build
  • Promote
  • Revisit

Allow me to explain how this works for me...

Planning & Building

The training within Wealthy Affiliate gives you everything that you need to know in order to plan and build your online business. When you stat writing an article you need to go for low competition keywords in order to rank in the search engines. This is an essential step! If you choose a high competition keyword then you are going to have a much longer wait to see it rise to the top of the search results.

As you build up your website, you will gain more authority with the search engines and you will find it easier to rank on page one for your chosen keyword over time.

Creating pages and posts on a regular basis is essential to your success too. You want Google to take your business seriously? The only way that you will convince them is by providing them with quality content, just as Wealthy Affiliate teaches you.

Ranking And Traffic Take Time

One of the main reasons that I wanted to show you the above examples of money that I have made is because those sums of money were made from just 3 articles that I wrote. Those articles were written a few months ago!

Although I didn't make any money with those articles at first, because I have continued to gain Googles trust by writing more content, my older articles have slowly risen within the search engines.

Because I did a bit of planning in the beginning, those articles are now sitting on the first page of Google and getting steady amounts of traffic.

Choosing Your Products

Another thing that you should plan before writing your articles is the products that you are promoting. You will notice in the examples that I have provided that a couple of my payments are for just $0.50! Not much I know! BUT...

A lot of affiliate marketers won't promote lower commission items as they feel that its not worth the effort. This means that there are lots of products out there that have very little competition when it comes to promoting them.

This works exactly the same for mid and high commission products too. A lot of affiliate marketers will only promote what is most popular and what gets the most traffic looking to buy it. However there are lots of high priced, high commission products out there with very little competition. And that's the very reason I wanted to show you my one off payment of $489.50!

I recently reviewed a training product on my website which led me to this technique. And that brings me onto my next point...

Believe In What You Promote

If you want to promote a product on your website that is going to make you money, then you need to believe in what you are promoting. Your website visitors will see straight through you if you give them a rehashed version of what someone else has already said. If you want to have the edge on your competition you need to give your customers the solutions that they are looking for. When someone looks at a review for a product, they expect to learn as much as possible. If they don't get the answers from you, they will simply move onto the next website in the search results.

If you want to write a really great review, contact the product creator and ask for review access. You will be surprised how many product owners will give you access! This gives you a perfect opportunity to show your visitors more than your competition can.

The Wealthy Affiliate reviews that I see people creating every day are amazing in a lot of cases! If you have ever looked through Wealthy Affiliate reviews you will know what I mean. They are lengthy, have lots of detail and are full of PASSION! Why? Because all you guys out there have an insiders view of how great it is.

You need to show that passion in anything that you are willing to promote if you want to to make money with it.


That brings me to the "promote" section of my 4 steps...

If you have written an amazing article about a particular subject or you have written a review, then you need to promote it. It's not enough to simply write an article and then leave it. You need to get the word out about your new content!

By simply sharing your content on social websites you do a couple of different things.

By posting to social sites every time you publish something, you will build up your following on those sites. Eventually this will lead to some substantial traffic.

Got a spare 10 minutes? Head over to your social networks and post something! Simply being active within social sites will keep your following building up. It doesn't have to be a link back to your site, just say something that people might find helpful or inspirational. Or you could just try being yourself!

Posting your articles and reviews on social websites also gives Google a signal and a path to follow back to your site. This helps to get you indexed and also helps with your search engine position as well.


When it comes to making money online with your website, there is one thing that is very powerful but yet gets overlooked quite often.

Search engines love up to date information! And there is a really easy way that you can give it to them. By simply going back over your old posts and making a few tweaks and changes, perhaps adding or updating images, you keep your posts up to date.

This also applies when you are promoting your articles too. Simply updating your articles and then re-sharing them on social websites can give you a little boost in terms of search engine placement.

How Much Will YOU Earn?

How much money can you make with Wealthy Affiliate? The answer is, as much as you are willing to work for. We all know that WA isn't some get rich quick scheme. And we all know that we are in the best possible position to be able to make a successful online business.

Work hard and keep learning! If you want to make it online, then you have the best possible chance right here!

I wish you all the best of success...
