Does Wealthy Affiliate Really Work? YES and Here is Proof
Recently I had seen a WA blog post by a member labeling all members in the top 200 rankings as Fake Experts. Though I am most definitely within that targeted category of members, I did not bother to reply because I knew the post was written out of anger and frustration.
Some of what this member claimed is true. There are many members within the top 200 and even the top 25 that are not making any money from promoting WA. The WA ranking is not an indicator of monetary success. But this does not mean that they are not making money from other affiliate programs.
THE WA TRAINING WORKS!
We all have a choice when becoming members of WA. We can either create an affiliate marketing website in whatever niche we desire or we can take the Affiliate Bootcamp and promote WA. Personally for me I do not see the benefit in promoting WA without first knowing how WA can help me earn.
Though I do promote WA, I only did so after creating two websites in other niches. It was my feeling that I could not effectively promote WA until I had seen first-hand how the training works in other niches. Once I completed the Certification Courses and had two niche websites, only then did I do Bootcamp.
PROOF YOU CAN MAKE MONEY FROM WA
I have never been one to share here within WA the amount of money I make online from WA and my other affiliate programs. I am not going to start now but I will show you in the below screen shots of what I made within an 8 day period from April 17th through 24th from WA.
It is probably too difficult to read all of that because of the small print, so I have provided better screen shots below. NOTE, when other members claim that they are getting WA referrals you need to understand that not all referrals make you money. Only premium referrals generate recurring income.
To better understand what is in the screen shot above and below, in short I had 5 recurring WA premium commissions, 1 new WA premium commission, 3 $1.00 credits for domain referrals, 5 new referrals "Invitation Accepted", 1 $1.00 credit for account set up, and 6 cash credit payouts for WA training tutorials.
I did have one new affiliate sign up to ClixSense within that 8-day period as seen in above images.
AND THE CORRESPONDING DATES
HOW CAN YOU ACHIEVE THIS?
The above displayed results are not my most lucrative 8 days I have had since becoming a member, I made just $187.50 within these 8 days, but for the sake of demonstration I think they convey the message that YOU CAN make money at Wealthy Affiliate. You too can do this and more if you promote WA, but you first need to learn and work hard.
I do not make all of my money from the WA affiliate program, as I belong to 7 other affiliate programs too. But because of the training here at WA and my desire to not have all of my money making eggs in one basket, I can definitely prove that the WA Training Works!
For any newbie reading this, just because you see members ranking highly within WA does not mean they are making good money if at all. The WA ranking is solely based on activity within the community. That being said there are plenty of members who are making money and you can too!
All you need to do is follow Kyle’s training, step by step. Do not rush to make money because monetary success rarely comes quickly. It could take you a year or more to start making consistent income within your chosen niche. You just have to keep applying what you learn, have patience, and never quit.
