I joined with Wealthy Affiliate in December 2015 and it's been a wonderful journey! I had absolutely no knowledge of online business and how to setup a website. I spent couple of years prior searching on the internet looking for ideas on how to make income online and pretty much the ones I had seen offered very little or they were just pure scams.

Today, I'm very proud of my accomplishments of my online business... yes, I have a website!! So much I learned... SEO, how to write content, reviews, understanding customer needs, images, alt text, how to setup menus, how to find quality keywords, etc.

Thanks to Kyle, Carson, Jay and all the members here.. I would not have done this without you! Your tutorials are amazing and very helpful!

As it's been taught here... you need to work hard at it. This is very true. You get out of it what you put into it. I believe in hard work... I've asked lots of questions (68) and had immediate responses back. The nice part, is seeing the successes of others because they're great incentives.

I like how the lessons are all kept up to date with technology constantly changing.

Annual membership fee is very reasonable... I have learned a lot more here than the price I pay annually!

I have absolutely no regrets and look forward to a long relationship with Wealthy Affiliate and the members here!!

I won't write my review just yet. I have not either started on my nr #1 recommendation page on any of my sites as of yet.. and that's for one reason: I want to first see the formulae working.. I need to see a 'success' that I can be proud about and can blog about here.

After that I will start promoting WA fully. And sofar I can blame myself for not having achieved that yet. Absolutely not blaming you guys.

But as far as reviewing negatives goes... I'd like to point out that saying in the comparisons that it has 50 websites is a little faulty.. its 25 siterubix subdomains and 25 own registered domains.

Doesn't stop one from running a VPS next to WA though and running another 50 domains ;-) Nor does it stop us from owning two WA accounts to have the double.

But as far as misleading marketing goes, that is one of them. I didn't figure that one out until after I joined WA premium.

Other than that I believe that WA promotion shouldn't go into the direction of overpromising or blacking everyone else. I am sure there are a lot of scammers but we cannot compare apples with pears and I have seen a lot of that happening on Bootcamp related affiliate sites.

Other than these two things.. I am completely happy with WA! Yes! Really! Awesome hosting, awesome courses, awesome positive community, awesome services, awesome live sessions with Jay, awesome sitesupport. Awesome sitemail. Awesome owners! Awesome key members!

Okay.. perhaps 59 USD per month is a bit steep for most people though. I am a happy black friday WA premium, but that isn't everybody.

And while we are at it: Jaaxy is also steep at Pro level. But I will do Jaaxy pro as soon as I make money with my blogs.

My opinion of WA, ...I find being part of WA encouraging from the community and motivating from the owner and the dedicated staff of WA. A cut above the usual fast paced expectancy of other web hosts. I am horrible with tech savvy language and application, At other host I've tried I felt painted into the corner of what to do, here at WA everyone wants for you to succeed;
and why shouldnt we?
Its a BIG world out there. Crazy as it is, its our world and our oyster to find the pearl in.
I myself have not upgraded to premium, but Im looking forward to that day.
Thank you WA Affiliates & Kyle & Carson .

I have just joined yesterday and only been scanning the content and never been able to follow the lessons properly due to shift work. The content looks good and even for the subscription for premium I think it looks good and reasonable, not like most sites who want 100s or 1000s dollars to see there content and you know they will be hidden fees.

Just scanning over the lessons I think my problem would be finding a niche/something to write about on a consistent basis, especially something I would enjoy and would also make money, but that's a future problem.

One problem I have been having with the site is it doesn't seem to be mobile compatible. I have been trying to look at the contents during my break at work on my phone but the website doesn't convert to mobile correctly and stays at a PC format. Is it just me who is having this problem or have others experienced the same thing?

I have accessed my account on my Iphone 6S and it works fine. Not sure what kind of phone you have but you should be able to access the site. It is harder to see on my phone but functional.

It is functional but it is in PC format, where you've got to zoom in constantly rather than it altering to size with it being on a phone like most sites do. Bit picking really, good site from what I've seen
Reply
StevenEsser Premium
I agree with you that the site isn't mobile friendly. But I manage it with zooming no problem to read stuff.

But to be honest, this platform is to be used on a bigger screen.. when you want to write stuff and research stuff you need to work with mouse, keyboard and big screen.

For the tutorials you can use mobile as well, although you have to zoom in. But most tutorials have video's so that shouldn't be a problem.

Wealthy Affiliate is the platform that will transform you from a want-to-be to an established OnLine Marketer. I researched and purchased quite a few business offers online and most was CRAP! Nome produced the results promised. One day I received an email from one of my Representatives from my Pet Food Business and he introduced me to Wealthy Affiliate.

At last, I had found exactly what I've been searching for to have a Legitimate Presence on the Internet. Wealthy Affiliate not only gives you the needed tools to succeed, you will not find the training, support, and comradeship that is Wealthy Affiliate anywhere else. This is my link, please tell me what you think.

I am having a problem in that I can't seem to get anyone to address a problem that I am having with the rubix site domain. Part of the problem here is that calling this a domain is incorrect. It is a subdomain which is under the control of http://rubix.com and 'rubix' is the domain.

How can I get someone to address my problem and lead me to a solution which is to change the subdomain (rubix site domain)?

Hi John,

For clarification, it's siterubix.com domain and not rubix.com

I personally think calling it a siterubix.com domain is fine.
http://take.ms/kbZy5

If you wish to change the URL of your siterubix.com SUB-domain, then the easiest path would be create a new one and dump the other one.

Honestly speaking, I'm grazy about this community ever since I was exposed to unsuccessful online business and lost a lot money before. Wealthy Affiliate is the number 1 contender for me. I've got a successful website and domain through WA and I'm now only 2 months with the community but its like years now. I love simplicity, love and caring within the platform, more than help as requested and opportunity to explore online adventure.

I Love the simplicity and how easy things are to understand and how everything is done in steps.
There really is NO way this wont work for you unless you don't do something right yourself.
All the answers and help that I need are here and I will be around for a very long time. I love it.

WA is the best platform there is, you learn how to make a website /online bussines and everything behind it. Even somewone who has never made a website before and is a complete newbie at it you've made a site in just a few lessons. And if you're struggeling with something you can always ask the community and in a few minutes you have some comments back from them. So a nice and helpfull community too.

There is no doubt in my mind. Had I found WA 5 years ago when I started looking into online marketing, I would definitely have a very well established online business by now.

The training is set out in such an easy to follow way that you will not get lost, side tracked or overwhelmed.

In the off chance you did get stuck on something, spending less than a couple of minutes on Live Chat will get you the help you need.

Words can't really explain how Highly I Recommend Wealthy Affiliate. It's perfect to get you going with your online business journey.

Thanks So Much !!

Being retired recently from 40 years in the medical field I was looking for a fun and rewarding adventure, Wealthy Affiliate has given me that. The training is superb, Kyle, Carson and all the affiliates are always there to answer question and give advise to us "green Horns," The training is concise, thorough, well organized and given in a way that is easily understood by a novice, Thank you WA for giving me this opportunity to a challenging and rewarding second career.

Well, I have been with WA for less than a week but am already very impressed with the site. Having looked at various ways to make money online ...and been extremely disappointed, I feel there may be `a light at the end of the tunnel` ! It is early days yet and I know I am going to have to work at it being a complete novice but I have hope .It is a very friendly community ,at which, I am enlightened.

Hi Ana , Yes I started at the beginning by following the lessons and gradually built my niche. It does take some understanding but keep at it and eventually things start to make sense. If you get a problem with something ....just ask the community ! no matter how trivial it seems. Always someone will help you or point in the right direction.
I have to leave it for the moment as I have a situation within my family where I need to devote my time but I hope to resume in the future.

Wealthy Affiliate is an amazing site to learn about marketing on the internet, even if you are not of the techie generation. The training is easy to follow, but if you do get stuck there is always someone to help you along the way. As a huge bonus you also meet incredible people from all over the world! This is not a get rich quick scam, but an honest classroom you as the student can apply to your very own website.
I am very pleased to have stumbled upon Wealthy Affiliate and believe you will be too.

I love my interaction with WA, it has been great value for me. I am able to work at a pace that is comfortable for me, without intrusion and I am able to get help when I need it. The only thing I would like to see is a service that offers one on one consultation when I get really stuck. The list of previous training and the community/support are helpful, but sometimes everyone is busy or no one knows the answer. Question isn't answered promptly. This happens rarely so it is not a show stopper for me. I have created an amazing website. I can see that this can become a real business for me eventually. The training is great and it is so extensive I haven't had time to even begin to tap the full potential - my New Year resolution.

WA totally changed my outlook on how to become a successful entrepreneur and telling the truth about the hard work that would be involved. I had a business where not only did you have to pay for the monthly fee (understandable) but also all of the tools that would make you successful (not understandable). WA offers more what seems like for less and anybody will win with that attitude because WA offers what should be offered...the heart first!

I found WA to be the most amazing site compared to other affiliate marketing courses online due to the amazing community and lots of tutorials.

The only thing I'm concerned is that people from the Philippines cannot avail the free membership and the first month of $19 discounted price. I hope Philippines will be excluded from the list of countries that cannot get the free membership.

I have more reviews of WA here. Both Positive and Negative reviews about WA:

I believe that there is something greater at work here at WA than just building websites and friendships. What is also being built here is my courage because I am in complete control of my new online businesses, and I have been given the tools to realize this great personal freedom.

The great mystery of getting your pages ranked by the search engines really isn't a mystery at all: it's just a matter of learning to be helpful, creative and writing relevant content. The search engines want us to be this way, so we're getting the best education on how to do just that!

The most amazing site, the most amazing friends and network. You think you like Facebook...GRANTED...Wealthy Affiliate makes Facebook look mean to people. They are teaching the skills that you need to get a presence online, build out your brand, optimize for traffic using the search engines, and ANYTHING you can think of about creating and building and running your business online. I don't want to sound too flowery, but they are literally the best thing I've EVER had my head in. HANDS DOWN, and aside from world peace, I can't imaging anything cooler. The leaning here is the best way I've ever seen to learn, it's easy, and will get you results today!

Considering how difficult it is to market on the internet, I see WA as a sigh of relief.

What attracted me most is simplicity with which the tutorials and video training have been assembled. In addition to that, the active participation of members makes it all the more easier.

Although some people are more creative than others, WA is so chock full of information, that even the most passive member can reap some financial rewards at the end.

In my opinion, WA is not created for people looking to get rich overnight, but people who are serious about building a solid business that can yield profitable results for years to come.

The structure is one that even if you decide to leave eventually, by the time you arrive at that decision, you would have learned so much, that it wouldn't really matter.

So in conclusion, after having spent so many years on the internet, I believe that WA is certainly one of the best place to be when trying to learn how to build a business on the internet.

Hey Everybody,

I've always had a fascination for the internet and I'm always on my computer. I have built some websites for a motorcycle club that I was a member of and like many of you, I've been down some bad roads with the so called Internet Marketing GURUS where their only interest was, how much of my money could they swindle from me.

And like many of you, I stumbled across Wealthy Affiliate by happenstance, I was reading up on a scam about some other company when I saw the WA link. I became a member, but suddenly I felt that this was a scam also, causing me to back away.

To be quite frank, I was so skeptical to get the ball rolling here. But after reading numerous positive reviews from so many sources and after procrastinating for 10 months, I decided that this is where I should be. Actually, this is where I needed to be. So here I am......

And during my first month here with Wealthy Affiliate, I have a website which Google has ranked on page 3; a video which is ranked on page 1. All of this is attributed to what I've learned here so far. The sky is the limit. I enjoy all of the efforts and the feedback the WA Community has given me.

A Top Notch bunch of people who care about what it is that
we're all trying to achieve; Successfully Earning a Viable Income Via the Internet.

The best business decision I ever made..........

Thank You Wealthy Affiliate.

I Love your post. It is true when you come across so many scams you get skeptical about what the truth is and what is not the truth, but when you do learn a little bit more about being an affiliate marketerer you automatically know a con when you see one and wealthy affiliate is not one. When I came back to this site and became premium not only did I learn what I already knew, but I also learned stuff that I had no idea that was out there available for us so this in itself is a win win situation. Good luck to you and have a wonderful day.

I hope to fulfill my dreams of making a decent living on the internet with some perseverance and the right mindset. Good luck with all of your future endeavors with WA.

I first discovered wealthy affiliate back in 2013 but could not become a full premium member until this year July 2016. It tells you how much I think about this site to come back to it after being away from it for 3 years.. This website got me interested in doing affiliate marketing in the first place and you never forget about the person who got you started.

I have been here for three months now and the things that I find hard for new members is the fact that you get overwhelmed when you first start.

The welcoming part is very refreshing and it makes you feel good and gives you the motivation to continue on.

The difficult part is trying to interact in all of the discussions, the commenting, interacting with the community becomes overwhelming because it takes away from you doing your work.

I also found it hard to ask a question because my questions were being answered by new members instead of members who know what they are talking about.

New members are learning just like me so how can they answer my questions. Also, the part that just made me so frustrated and caused me to not participate anymore was the comment section.

People would ask you to leave a comment and then they would turn on you after you left the comment. Nobody seems to have a clear understanding about this comment leaving situation and it needs to be clarified. Other than that I am so happy about what I have accomplished so far here.

I will not let anything stop me from accomplishing what I set out to accomplish here. Yes, these lessons are hard and yes you can get overwhelmed, but when this happens you have to take a break recoup and get back to the task at hand.

Hi, its a very good idea for w.a to continue seeking reviews from members:

the idea of w.a being for beginners is okay but there are a lot of subjects for advanced members that do come up from time to time. it will be good to add or label some of the topics as 'advanced'

2. the system should be changed so that a member returning after a month should not be welcomed as if he is completely new; his previous records should be synched with his new entry. there could be a flag or notification for members that Mr or Ms X is returning after a month. however those who've been away for a year and over could be welcome anew.

3. it would be good to have input i.e posts on various subjects from the popular seasoned marketers that one could always refer to. as it is we do a lot of reading and research on our own- it is not easy for new members to teach others who are as new as themselves.

4. alternatively qualified staff could be brought on board to help members with some of the answers. most members tend to want to concentrate on building their businesses as well help with the community here. it will also be appropriate to know other staff and what they do behind the scene

5. it should be made easy for members to pay monthly or yearly, whichever is desired. members should be made aware of problems with payments systems, if any. at times it appears as if going yearly is the only option

6. members can be given a certificate of participation upon completing all the modules.

Hope some of the above changes will be put in place asap.

I have been a premium member for just over a month now and absolutely love it. I have been with other programs and they have always left me disappointed with confusing tutorials and hard to follow steps but especially with the support. Sometimes I would be waiting forever, not so here. I get answers in the Live Chat room within minutes. The training available is huge, Video classes are invaluable but what I love the most is the WA community. Everyone is so eager to help and support each other. I have written a review which I posted last night, its already at the "Number 3 spot on Google" for the keyword "Wealthy Affiliate Review" http://wealthyaffiliatedevelopment.com/wealthy-affiliate-review I got there just by following the Certification Course and the Affiliate Bootcamp. This was all due to the A Class Tutorials which I followed step by step, I consider myself to be an internet dummy but am really getting the hang of this. I can't believe that I've only been with WA for a little over 6 weeks and yet this has produced more results than the last 12 years with other programs. I already have paying referrals even tho they did say it could take a few months before you start seeing any money coming in. I will be sticking with WA for a long long time.
Thanks Kyle & Carson

I have been at wealthy affiliate for about 4 months. I decided on a premium membership pretty quickly (within the first month) and started my first website. I have learned more here in the 4 months of being a member than in all the years of surfing the internet since it was invented (yes I'm that old). If I can follow along and get things right then anybody who has a desire to succeed online CAN do so here. The support is the biggie, I was never for a second left flapping in the wind once I joined in on the community here. I have more hope for working for myself then I have had in many years. I have WA to thank for it. Thanks Kyle and Carson, for this

I have just posted my first article on my site. What I like about WA is the ease of use and the simple walk-throughs. I believe that anyone who sticks to it will see results a little faster than normal. I love the interaction in the community but feel bad that I sometimes get too overwhelmed and can't respond fast enough.

Overall, I would say it is definitely worth the investment, especially if you have tried and failed with so many Online opportunities.

I have been with Wealthy Affiliate for over a year now.

The one thing which struck me was the ease of getting good help from the community. This helped me to master creating a website on WordPress.

I have not achieved a tenth of the goals I made here. For example, I said I wanted to recruit 300 people before the end of 2015. Up to now, I have only one premium member who joined only days ago and 3 free ones who seemed to have come in to look around.

I'm not making any money yet but today I learnt that my site has has average (55/100) visibility in search engines and is worth $10,000. That made me feel good. Those 2 figures tell me I'm doing good and if I keep on keeping on, I'm going to reap the results one day.

Rome was not built in a day and Wealthy Affiliate is not a get-rich-quick scheme, so guys, let's give ourselves the time necessary to succeed.

I have been with WA for about a month now. My journey here has been a blessed one. I've learned so much and have met so many cool, friendly, thoughtful, and VERY helpful members!

When I first came across WA, I was struggling. I just spent almost a year building my first website....FAIL! The initial building actually took me about 3 months. It was a lot to learn and do. My first reaction was, "I bit off more than I could chew", but I kept at it. After doing research, seeing what others were doing on their site (in my industry/niche), and comparing them to mine, I made modifications. Not once, twice but three times, I kept changing...hence almost a year.

For more of my story check out.... In my blog, I shared how I stumbled across WA and how fortunate I was. That day was a turning point for me.

What I like about Wealthy Affiliate is the value and quality of training that's provided. As well as the unlimited amount of support and assistance you receive. Talk about, "It takes a village". Furthermore, that training provides two options to earn revenue. The more I read, the more I learn. The more I learn, the more excited I got and couldn't wait for the next step!

My benefit from WA is the mere fact that being here, I no longer have to struggle in or with my work and/or website. Also, I'm never alone nor do I feel that I am. I have an actual roadmap to success and the backing from a huge community! I'm watching success being built right before my very own eyes!

Thank You, Lord, for the provision, and ordering my footsteps! Thank you, Kyle and Carson! Thank you, WA fam! Thank you, Wealthy Affiliate!

If you go to my website and read just a few of my blog posts around the word "home":

namely

HOME: Working from home is the Future,

Brief Historical Sketch of Home,

Why you should blog at home etc.

you will find out how much I love "home".

Yes, home is where I am going to confine myself the rest of my life as I am getting old. I am now 68, disabled dialysis patient.

But wait a minute "stay at home" doesn't neccessarily means confining oneself inside the confine of the four surrounding walls.

With the help of Wealthy Affiliate my home life becomes lively. I have more than 300 followers to communicate with every day here at Wealthy Affilaite. I am not islolated.

Think about home - not as a confinement. Not so, in this age of Internet or the 21st. century. And more importantly home can be anywhere else. Your holiday villa could be your home when you are blogging and making a fortune from the comfort of your Ultrabook. It can be in your hotel. It can be on the aeroplane or on a cruise ship anywhere imaginable.

So all these things become a reality - not merely a dream but a dream comes true when I join the Wealthy Affiliate.

My home is now my website http://powerinfosumernetwork.com, my home is Wealthy Affiliate. My life is there in the cyberspace. It is everywhere.

And! There are a lot more! I have tons and tons of information, knowledge, wisdom and fortune to be reaped once I become a Wealthy Affiliate full time member.

I have found a new life here. Thanks to Kyle and Carson, Thanks to all those nice nice community members from all over the world, whom I come across here at Wealthy Affiliate.

I don't need to search for anykind of paying job. I have a lot of things to do with this knd of Network as my platform. Yes, Wealthy Affiliate is truly a life changing platform for me and YOU!

And among all things Wealthy Affiliate is one of the places I now call Home.

Just follow the step by step courses and also the Affiliate Bootcamp. Oh I am talking about my undaunting belief that my dreams will come true very soon - not later. After completing all the training classes here at WA, I am overjoyed and over-confident now. I am sharing my feeling and near vision. Any more question? PM me.

I think this is an awesome website that I am so excited to be apart of! I get so excited to see all the emails I have gotten from this site. I get pumped up when someone new follows me. I can wait to get more involved in this. It doesn't seem hard and I will get to work on this on my own leisure which is great to have no deadlines! :)

What can I say? I have literally been jumping out of my bed in the mornings because WA has become such an addictive part of my daily routine.

I can't wait to see what I need to do next, and so I get up early and read through, or watch, the latest training. I love that everything is so immediately actionable.

At the moment I am working through the Affiliate Bootcamp training and learning first hand how to promote something I totally believe in - WA itself. It couldn't be any easier.

Aware that building an online business doesn't happen overnight, I paid for my membership yearly. I did this to give me the momentum to do everything I could in one year to start earning a living, and then when my next annual subscription comes along I aim to pay for it through my commissions. Note that I will be re-newing.

I intend to be a member in Wealthy Affiliate for a very, very long time. Most likely for the rest of my working life! I want to be one of the top ranking members too!

The great thing with this whole thing is that as I learn skill after skill, and create an online business, transforming my life completely, I'll also know that I'll have helped others do the same.

I can't wait to meet up with my WA family in Las Vegas when I reach and surpass the 300 member sign ups in 2017. But for now, back to the training. I've got work to do.

The wide ranging resources here at WA are so positively overwhelming for me, and although I have been exploring the community for approximately two months now, I merely managed at this time to come across "Wealthy Affiliate Review, My Unique Take". It was indeed compelling reading for me.
Among the things I find striking is the exceedingly high level of honesty regarding the review of WA by Kyle. I can share that for quite a little while now, I did some content for my affiliate website and also for my blogs, and as I read Kyle's review, I realized that my views about WA certainly concur with that of Kyle's, except, understandably, mine is found wanting. Mind you, I'm sometimes labelled as a 'hard taskmaster' not only for others but more so for myself, I rather doubt such, Be that as it may, I think that as I read, my eyes were wide open to identify the flaws in Kyle's arguments. It's indeed a most difficult task.
Like a well crafted debate, all the holes for arguments seem to be plugged and supported. Given my experience of how things are often done in our world, I dare say that WA community was not conceptualized by ordinary minds. I believe that when people have done a magnificent task, they ought to be told , before it's too late. I'm happy to be a beneficiary of such conceptualization.

I am a newbies in WA, and i think it is awesome and i think we can start our new carrier here as the succes online entrepreneur business, as long as we keep folowing the system.

I have been here just in 4 days, i confused, i did not understand (the answered is : yes) but i will keep working on this to figure it out everyday by reading what people doing, make good communication with peoples in the community and ofcourse asking for someone help.

If other members have made it, i want to be the next one of them.

Thanks god i found this site

WA has changed my life forever! After searching and searching day in and day out for ways to begin a business with little money I found WA like it was a gift after many years of planning and visualizing and dreaming I can finally hit ALL of my goals I can also give back WA helps you do both very naturally.

WA was a god send that I came across. i actually had goggled how to post ads for an online business I had just begin and your site popped up. I am thankful that it did, because I had no help from the other business. I WA is awesome, I think the group chat is wonderful, and one thing for sure if you need help you definitely can get it. So therefore, this lets me know that you guys are here to help me to achieve my goals 100 percent. Thanks again!!

When you are starting out online with little money and you can't compete with big marketers with deep pockets, you have no other option but to use free or low cost methods like blogging and search engine optimization. Wealthy Affiliate has picked me up when I am about to quit and accept that making money online is only for the big spenders.

The training was quite helpful in setting everything up, I really like the community here. A very supportive group. Wealthy Affiliate has inspired me to make an online career path and I will take every step to get there.
I still haven't signed up for premium, I just am not sure i can dedicate enough time right now, but I hope to upgrade soon

Although I have only just joined Wealthy Affiliate I would just like to put my thoughts in. I like how the courses are out together. Kyle shows you his example website and let's you do the same to your own website. If it wasn't for this approach then I would still be reading and not doing. I have done plenty of reading in the past, but with this course it lets you take the first step and grow. Can't wait to see where this journey will take me.

When I first started with Wealthy Affiliate, I thought it might be a scam to get my money. I found out that I was totally wrong. I have found a community that is second to none. It is positive and supportive. Their training is top notch and I have made a great website with their training. They don't try to upsell any training after you make the standard purchase and all cost are up front. I have found no hidden cost. They have a webinar every Friday that is informative and fun. I have made many friends thru the Follow Program and the Live Chat. I have found great value in Wealthy Affiliate even if I had not made a dime thru their training and support.

Absolutely correct. I spent some money over the last 10 years attending seminars, training (online / otherwise), and reading books about online opportunities. WA is the first place where everything necessary was in place (from my perspective) to get involved and progress with developing online opportunities. And YES, the community is great.. Cheers

Hi, you ask for an honest opinion, here is mine.
Some facts in a row imho:
- It will take approx a year to have a website with enough quality visitors.
- Let's say you have 1000 quality visitors a day on your website at the end of the year. ....
- Imagine yourself... How many offers have you seen on the internet before you buy something online. Once in the 500 offers you see?
When did you buy something. Ok, but we have 1000 quality visitor, lets be optimistic, and say 10% is clicking on a product they see on your website, and another 10% of that is actually going to buy that product. So that is 1% of the 1000 visitors per month. That is 10 visitors in a month actually going to buy something.
- Let's say they sell products with an average price of 20 dollar. You get 10% commision, 10 visitors x 20 dollar = 200 dollar, 10 procent commission is then 20 dollar you earn per month. ( The first year)
Let's be a bit more optimistic , and say we earn 60 dollar per month. Or ok, let's say 100 dollar a month, because we are very good.
- The premium membership is as I remember around 45 pounds a month.
- So roughly estimation is that we earn netto 50 pounds a month.
Ok, let's be a bit more optimistic, let's say we earn 200 pounds netto per month. Nice.
- But how many hours did we spend on making a network ( website and social media connected ) , finding offers, open the affiliate windows and doing some management there, fill the website with offers. This could be done, if you are focussed and exacly know what you are doing, in 4 hours a day. No time for hesitation then or swings.
- So that is let's say 24 hours a week, or 100 hours a month. 200 pounds ( or dollars) devided by 100 is 2 dollar per hour.

I appreciate your tutorials, and this is a nice website, but 45 dollar per month for hosting a website is to much. I pay for my well settled website I have for a year now something like 10 dollar every month, and there are tons of tutorials out there about wordpress, affiliate programs ( by amazon etc) everywhere and up to date.

My question is: Can you convince me to go for a premium membership? Or are there any other offers possible ?

Hello! Honestly, I never try to "convince" anyone to do anything they don't want to do. I'm new here (a month), so take my opinion with a grain of salt, but a lot of people make a lot of money in affiliate marketing. If SOMEONE can do it, that means I can do it.
It does seem that the numbers you're using for your equations are pretty..."off the cuff". Did you get those numbers from somewhere, or are they just random? An equation is only as good as the numbers input, so I'd want to verify sources for your math to work out. For example... WA says they have about an 8% conversion rate (IIRC). That number is nowhere in your equation, but it's a pretty important one.
In the end, though, do what feels right to you. You sure don't want to waste time or money doing any goofy junk that's never going to help you reach your goals. I've certainly wasted enough of both. For some examples, check out my post http://nocollegedegreeforme.com/im-a-failure-and-proud-of-it
Good luck to you!

45 dollars a month for hosting? Not here! You are making a lot of nothing seem important.
Experienced marketers are here because of the 1000 videos and on-going trainings. We have support, 24 hours a day, with access to Kyle and Carson, If that's not enough to get you to see the benefits, go ahead and stay FREE forever and enjoy the 2 FREE websites.

Thanks, I signed up for premium now for the following reasons:
- Because of the atmosphere here. ( succes is not ONLY money)
- Did a recalculation, and realized I forgot to convert dollars to pounds, and didn't think about having more than 1 website. That with the WA affiliate program, it seems to me that it is worth it.

My apology for the bad impression at first.

your first reaction is not uncommon actually. mine was "what the what? that doesnt compute" and the whole "and get more in" gives my spine absolute shivers. then i used the free week in the limited spare time i had (i work 12 hours a day) and got a little interested. i hung around for a week after that because the free stuff here is still nicely organized and pretty good. their new years gift was extending the upgrade so i actually had a few extra days to look - and interact here. the mentorship from the talent pool in here alone is worth the subscription. it is a goldmine of information above and beyond the training, and the training is top notch so thats going some. the multiple website options...i just drooled, its a bargain. the fact that is fun, well, thats just a nice bonus. congrats on coming on board, i think you are going to love it here :)

I'm newbie here in WA University. I'm a network marketing mentor in our mlm company. I can say that everything here is great. Including the community. I have 0 knowledge in Online Business including blogging lol since I'm a field sales man. When I heard about Drop shipping and affiliate marketing I said this gonna be my next step in upgrading myself. I really want to upgrade myself, specially in Internet Marketing. I'm just the type of person who loves innovation. But I got disappointed seeing those scams, a lot of them online. Until I saw Jack's barenakedscam website that made me think and brought me here in WA. I am really thankful to him because I'm at peace now, I know that we're safe here, our money and effort will not be put into waste. I can say that I HAVE FOUND MY PLACE TO GROW as an ENTREPRENEUR, ONLINE ENTREPRENEUR. Kudos to you Kyle and Carson who made WA University the place to be. See ya!
