Affiliate Updates - Better Stats, Custom Homepage & More!

Last Update: December 16, 2014

We have been working hard behind the scenes to get a few updates out before the end of 2014. What an exciting year it has been thus far and we are truly pumped for 2015 and what we are going to be bringing to the community here at WA.

Today I wanted to give you a quick run through of the awesome updates and improvements we have made to the WA Affiliate Program area.

Much Improved Affiliate Stats

This has been a long time coming and I know many of you have desired much more granular stats for your referrals. Well we have completely revamped the Affiliate Stats page within Wealthy Affiliate and I think you are really going to like it.

Detailed Stats/Graphs

The first thing we have updated is the “Detail Stats”. You can now choose your stats between specific ranges (using the calendar tool) or you can quickly navigate between the Week/Month/Year/All Time Stats.

You can now select up to 10 different metrics (all at once which is the default). This is going to provide you with a much more organized and insightful look at your data and the presentation is a lot more clear within the graph representation.

If you want to manage the different metric categories, simply click the + symbol and it will allow you to add/remove.

My Revenue, A Breakdown of Commissions & Payouts

There is now a breakdown of all of your commissions as they come in, also indicating whether or not the sale is new or a recurring sale.

We also have a detailed history of your past monthly payouts for your reference within the "Payout History" tab.

These changes to the My Stats section are going to improve your ability to track and analyse your click and referral data as well as get a intimate overview of your overall financial progress.

Links & Tracking Updates - Premium Members Only

Within your WA Links & Tracking section, you will notice that there is now a drop down menu within the Affiliate links section with a “Create a Custom Link”.

This allows you to create 3 different types of links:

New Custom Homepage Link Builder

You can now create a custom WealthyAffiliate.com homepages which include your own personal image along with a message that you can send to people that are considering joining Wealthy Affiliate.

These add a personal element that was never available on the existing homepage and is going to lead to much higher conversions.

Here is an example of an actual custom homepage that I created:

http://www.wealthyaffiliate.com/a_aid/vakj1tkb/campaign/kylefree

Another thing that you can consider is creating direct linking PPC campaigns with these. You can link from any ad network directly to these custom homepages and you can create highly relevant homepages depending on where your customers are coming from.

Custom Sign-up Link Builder

This is where you can customize your own “create account” page. This is another entrance point you can send your referrals to within WA. Here is an example of what a Custom Sign-up will look like:

This bypasses the WealthyAffiliate.com site altogether. You can use these directly from your website.

Tracking Link Builder

You can create tracking links with any URL at WA. This means that you can track exactly where your referrals and sales are coming from if you set up specific tracking links on specific pages on your site.

Here is an example tracking link that I created called “wareview” that links directly to the homepage at WealthyAffiliate.com.

http://www.wealthyaffiliate.com/a_aid/vakj1tkb/data1/wareview

Now if I were to make a referral or a sale, this data would show up within my “Referral Entrance Details” on the stats page.


This is a breakdown to some of the most recent improvements and systems you have access to here as an affiliate. We continue to build features into our platform that NO other affiliate program has in the world and moving forward you are going to see continual improvements that will offer you more revenue potential as an affiliate of WA!

Happy affiliate marketing! We would love your feedback, so if you have any please leave it in the comments below.

Nice Kyle. One question I recall somewhere is that we earn $1 per initial referral. I've now referred 8 entities. 2 of which I definitely know are 'human.'
However my stats show no revenue earned. Does that only kick in if/when they go Premium?

Hey Shawn,

When a referral completes their account setup and adds and image and description, you earn a credit that is worth $1. This credit needs to be cashed out before it becomes actual "revenue" and shows up in your revenue earned section.

So, if your referrals have completed the account setup process, then you will see those credits on your stats page at the top. You can cash those credits out and turn them into dollars once you meet the minimum threshold.

Thanks Carson, that clears it up a little. The two who I know are humans have done very little and I think may have joined to keep me happy. The rest are probably bots as most of them suddenly appeared after I put a link in a Facebook post but they've done little since..

Thanks Kyle and Carson this will certainly give that personal approach and touch which should help our referrals become more comfortable and at ease when first checking out the site..

Hey Jeromy,

We're excited to offer this so that people visiting WA from your website, are welcome'd by you the referrer directly on the WA homepage. We think this personalization will have a positive impact on folks as they familiarize themselves with WA and create their accounts! Hopefully you'll be able to make use of this :)
