How to Earn as You Learn - Take Advantage of What WA Offers

Last Update: January 26, 2019

Anyone can earn a lucrative income with an affiliate marketing website after taking the training here at Wealthy Affiliate and growing their business over time. But are you taking full advantage of what WA offers?


You may have heard Kyle mention in the WA training, especially in WA Bootcamp, that every member has the ability to "earn as you learn." Do you know what that really means? It means that you can make money here as you go through the training and grow your websites.

How can you do this? I am doing it right now as I type this blog and as you are reading it. You can do this too aand I am sure you are doing this but not realizing it can make you money. I bet you are thinking Robert, what the heck are you talking about?

Well you should already know that sharing your unique WA affiliate link located at the top of your WA Program Details page, on social media and in emails, can earn you possible referrals to WA. If these referrals become premium, you get paid a commission.

You do not need to be actively promoting WA with a Bootcamp website to use your affiliate link. You can also share the blogs of other members, like those that I write, and get a possible referral commission. Just make sure to use your affiliate link to the posts.

But if you should decide to write your own WA blog, there are some simple things you can do to enhance the prospect of gaining a WA referral. Blogging here at WA has advantages beyond you just communicating to the WA community.


If you are new to WA just know that all of your WA blogs, question discussions, and training tutorials/videos you create, will get indexed into Google. If you write your blogs using keywords, you can get them ranked.

Just like with your website content, the higher it ranks the more traffic it will get. And the more traffic you get, the better chance you will get a referral. Like I said, if that referral goes premium you will earn $8.00 for their first month and $23.50 for every month afterwards.

I have personally gained over 300 referrals from my WA blogs alone and several of them have gone on to becoming premium referrals. I am not a special case. You can do this too, especially if you do some simple things which I outline at the tutorial link below.

How to Make Money with Your WA Blog

At the above link I discuss why you should consider writing your WA blog content the same way you do with your website content. I also tell you how I link to my WA blogs from inside my website content and why Google does not see them as affiliate links.

That latter part may not be that beneficial to those with a niche related website, as the only relevant place to post the link would be on your About Me pagee, but this is very beneficial with someone in the Make Money Online niche (Bootcamp).


As you go through the WA training you will learn about keyword research and SEO, Search Engine Optimization. These are essential to anyone who owns a website. Once you feel comfortable in knowing how tthis works, you can freelance your knowledge in it to others.

I currently make a couple of thousands of dollars every month working with three small local businesses that have websites but have no knowledge about keyword research and how it relates to SEO. What you learn here can earn you money elsewhere.

You can even earn a little bit of money, up to $75.00, for every training tutorial you create here within the community. If you know something that will help members to improve their online business building experience that hasn't been covered in the training, share your knowledge.

There are more ways to earn as you learn here at Wealthy Affiliate that go beyond what you will eventually earn from your niche websites. Though your ultimate goal is to build a profitable affiliate website, WA gives you other options to earn some money.

And remember, you can host up to 25 websites with a paid domain name, so you could build several websites for other people too. If you have any other money making ideas you can do here at WA, or have any comments and questions, post them below.

How to Share WA Affiliate Links on Social Media and Not Get Blocked

IMPORTANT: At the beginning of this post I mentioned how you can make money by sharing your WA affiliate link on social media. Currently Google+ and Pinterest block links from WA. Sometimes Facebook will too. At the link above I show you how I have successfully got around this problem.
