Online Poker! Inspired by MichaelK1
It's a fair question. You may not like the answer, but you inspired me to give an answer that, after 3 paragraphs in, I realized that my answer was a blog, not a reply to a question on the Feedback page. Nonetheless, all who have followed the link that I left to the answer here, will see that I did give an answer. Maybe not the answer you were expecting.
The truth of the answer is less than desirable: Whether or not we have made any money is quite frankly, none of your business. And, while that does sound rude, how many people are you willing to let go through your finances to see how many mistakes you've made and the cost for those mistakes? If you wish to ask us how much we have made but don't want to count the 2 years of ACTUAL WORK put into it, then you aren't asking "where's the money" but instead you're asking "how easy is this".
The answer is: it's as easy as you make it. If your idea of 2 years work and no money = online poker, you might be right. Online poker doesn't require much skill. You do need to know how to play the game, but you're playing a game of chance. Affiliate Marketing is not a game of chance. In fact, it's not even a game. It's a daily struggle that can last up to 2 years without a smidgen of $ coming back, especially if the focus is on the almighty dollar.
However, I saw your question there in the "Please Give Me Feedback" section and instantly thought of the Direct Sales Marketing business that I joined while in my absence from Wealthy Affiliate. One of the terms listed in that company's "T&C's" was so close to what is given here, I literally laughed out loud. Much to the confusion of the sponsor, I'll add.
Michael, you (and all others who may read this post) are asking for a representation of what the veterans have made. So, I'll give you a few:
$10 $100 $1,000 $10,000
So, why would I give you a few representations and then cross them out? Because they are a representation of what some have made, but if you were to try for either of them and fail, it would be a misrepresentation of both Wealthy Affiliate and the person from whom you are trying to get a number. This whole business of giving a $ of how much a person has made is also not legal in MLM and DSA type businesses. Why?
Suggesting a number is giving a representation of the expected income that you will achieve. If you don't achieve it, you then have legal documentation which you could take to a court of law and demand that the company reimburse you for the monies you did not receive.
If you have not put in the work, then why should the veterans tell you how much they have made? The answer is: they shouldn't and most likely won't. Otherwise, this is giving a man a fish and not teaching him.
