Just wanted to Keep everyone in the loop about a big event that comes up every year, this year it is going to be taking place on November 24th.Black Friday 2017

Black Friday.

Black Friday is always a time to celebrate here at WA for affiliates, as well as all members of the community. This is a time when we offer our lowest price discount on your membership ever. It also includes some exclusive bonuses that are only offered to those that take part in the Black Friday offer.

This year Black Friday at Wealthy affiliate will be running from Friday, November 24, to November 27th at MIDNIGHT.

This is the BIGGEST event of the YEAR for Affiliates.

Every year we continue to “beat” our expectations and we feel this is going to be the case this year once again. Wealthy Affiliate is in the best shape it has ever been in terms of our overall platform, the technology behind it, our vision and future releases, as well as the overall tone and contentment of the community. We are truly excited about what 2018 is going to bring!

We fully anticipate surpassing conversion % and revenue of Black Friday last year (which was a monster).

First off, for those of you that are affiliates or simply want to promote this offer, here is your Black Friday link. This is the same link as last year.

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/order/blackfriday

This link will also be found on the Affiliate Program page within WA as the date nears, but won’t be active until the actual offer is rolled out first thing on the 24th. It just has a placeholder page at the moment.

Here are the full details of the Black Friday Event.

Dates: November 24th, 25th, 26th, 27th (with an extra 3 additional days thereafter)

Offer: $299 per year

Who It’s Available to: EVERYONE

**If you are currently yearly premium member, you will be able to upgrade to Black Friday yearly as well. We will add another ENTIRE year onto your membership (on top of your existing one) and moving forward in subsequent years when your next payment is due, you will be grandfathered in at the lower $299 rate.

**Our 2017 Bonuses:

We are going to be offering the following bonuses in the year ahead, over FOUR hours of live video classes with full Q & A that is going to prepare everyone for a successful 2018 ahead.

(1) 7 SEO Marketing Strategies to Explode Your Rankings in 2018 (1 Hour Live Class + Q & A), December 1, 2017

(2) 7 Unconventional Ways to Amplify Your Brand in 2018 (1 Hour Live Class + Q & A), December 8th, 2017

(3) 7 Brilliant Traffic Strategies You Need to Know in 2018 (1 Hour Live Class + Q & A), December 15th, 2017

(4) Kyle Goes LIVE, Insights into Becoming an Expert in 2018 (1 Hour Live Class + Q & A), December 22nd, 2017

As is the case every year, we are going to be offering some awesome (and relevant) bonuses on top of just the “discount”. The reason we do this is that bonuses do lead to much higher conversions naturally, something to consider on your end as well.

There are many ways that you are going to be able to take advantage of this offer, even if you are not an active affiliate bootcamper and don’t have a website promoting WA.

  • WA Blog Post (here at WA)

  • Blog Post on Your Website (announcing to your audience)

  • Share blog post on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest leading up to, during Black Friday offer.

  • Share images on Snapchat and Instagram

  • Share through email with friends and family

  • Blast your list (if it is relevant to the affiliate marketing/make money niche)

  • Other forums, communities that are relevant

  • Anywhere you can get the word out there!

There are 5 angles in particular that are highly effective when it comes to boosting conversions and maximizing your sales during the Black Friday period. You definitely should be taking advantage of with your audience:

(1) Time Sensitivity, Time is Running out. Never going to be offered again.

(2) The Discount, $0.82 cents per day, less than $1 per day,

(3) The Wealthy Affiliate Platform (everything they need to create a business, success happens at a higher rate to those that give themselves a year in business, etc)

(4) Our bonuses + Email Sequence

(5) Your Bonuses + Email Sequence

We have once again fine-tuned the funnel from our end, and we will continue to do so with every year that passes, so with our efforts alone you should experience your HIGHEST CONVERSIONS ever on Black Friday. Add a bonus on your end and promo sequence on your end, and this is only going to be amplify your revenue.

Not to mention that we have added an incredible amount to the community in 2017, making the $299 per year offer even a better deal than in past years. There isn't a comparable service online, not to mention our price point is less than $0.82 per day with the Black Friday offer. It has become an easy "sell" for affiliates, and for members it has been an easy decision to upgrade to yearly on the Black Friday discount

Here a just some updates that took place at WA in 2017:

  • PageSpeed Insights - Analyze & Improve Your Website Speeds (October

  • SiteContent Images - Over 1,000,000+ FREE Images (October)

  • 2017 Ambassador Platform Launch - (September)

  • Jaaxy 3.0, A Brilliant Redesign (July)

  • SiteContent, The Ultimate Writing Platform (June)

  • SiteSpeed - Your Site is Now on Steroids (May)

  • SiteBuilder - Brand New Website Builder (April)

  • Training, Completely Redesigned (March)

  • SiteSSL, Free SSL for ALL (January)

You can leverage the idea of "how progressive/innovate Wealthy Affiliate is" in your emails to your list and also let people know about the VALUE of these platforms, all of which other companies/services are charging an exorbitant amount of money for.

I don’t want to let the cat out of the bag and reveal our upcoming 2018 launches before they happen, but I can give you some ideas as to what is going to be available to Premium members soon and you can leverage these when promoting the idea of “the year ahead within WA” to your respective audiences.

  • Introduction of the Ultimate Keyword & Research platform

  • SEO Automation for Your Content

  • Instant Access to 10,000’s of Affiliate Programs

  • HUGE Advancements in Websites and Hosting Space

  • A Fresh, New, More Intuitive Redesign

  • More Personalized Interaction & Help

  • A Streamlined Process for Getting Instant Expert Help

  • The Answer to Your Writing Needs

  • Full-Time Revenue Opportunities Directly Within WA.

  • A Beautiful Mobile Experience is Coming

  • Integration Between ALL Aspects of Your Business

  • Ambassadorship Opportunities and Advancements

  • Exciting New Writing & Affiliate Challenges

Commission payouts for Black Friday are recurring at $130 per year, and you will get these commissions paid out in subsequent years as well. Around 51% of people that go Premium Yearly will stick around for many years, and this is typical because those that commit to yearly are actually committing to their business and succeeding at a much higher rate (ie, actually creating a business).

And of course, if you are not an affiliate of WA, completely fine. This Black Friday offer is a no brainer and is something that you should jump on!

If you have any questions about the Black Friday launch or any ideas for your campaigns, do let us know and we will be happy to help.

Cheers,

Kyle

Great blog, Kyle!
And I'm really excited as I have just taken advantage of this remarkable offer! Looking forward to the live classes in December, and a year of commitment, hard work and success. With the help of the great WA community, that will be inevitable.

Thanks to you and Carson for the continuous improvement of the Wealthy Affiliate platform, can't wait to see what you guys have in store for the upcoming 2018 :)

I am struggling to insert a black friday banner into my post without leaving my affiliate link in there as well.

I have the image on my post but not sure how to pretty link a black friday html code.

I tried copying to pretty link the 'href part all the way to the affiliate link part' of the banner code, but, the links don't go anywhere.

Can someone please explain this to me so I can do it correctly?

I really do not want to leave an affiliate link on my post for fear of damaging its later ranking, thanks everyone!

Philip.

Direct Download the Black Friday Banner Image to your computer.
I am assuming you know how to make a pretty link in the first place. Upload your Black Friday Banner to the Dashboard and editor just like any other image and insert it into your post. Then hyperlink the image with your pretty link like any other using the editor. I don't see why this wouldn't work.

Hi Kyle
I just love the way you make these great offers for all takers. And the grandfathering a year on at the new low rate makes it quite a remarkable offer, so I am in! I'm also looking forward to the Live Classes for December and nice to have the dates to go in the diary in advance. Well Done with all the WA advances! John

Hey Kyle, or anyone else who wants to chime in, I just finished writing my blog post on my site for the Black Friday offer, my question is, would you still offer the free sign up as well or is that an option when they click the Black Friday Banner as well?
Reply
DaveSw Premium
I would offer the free trial as a down-sell...i.e. offer them a bonus on exit via a pop-up or banner ribbon notification...That is what I am planning... Good luck! ;)
Reply
Huffman Premium
I had the thought of putting an extra custom banner on the bottom. "For The Ones Who Aren't Quite Committed" There is still a free trial, but would that take away from the yearly conversions? But the main question is, when the Black Friday deal is clicked on, is the yearly sale the only one that pops up or are the free and monthly memberships also on that page?
Reply
DaveSw Premium
To keep their attention on the BFCM offer, I am adding the ribbon banner and with a setting for it to appear upon exit intent....I use the regular link for that banner...

Another take would be to have a banner at the bottom mentioning your bonuses - have that link set open in a new tab...Keep the exit intent ribbon as well...

This is a good time to create a bonus page too, I think...I have a great tool for that too hehe...Use it all the time and it integrates with some of the affiliates platforms out there...

I have a cool popup that is unobtrusive that also has a voice message and timer...

I am playing with that...It is not a usual one that you see too much of these days, and the voice (I use British female) really grabs people's attention...

Likely I will use two versions to see which converts better for all the funnels, and further refine them for future use/campaigns...

This is fun!

This is my first year actually understanding the marketing side, there are so many ways! You definitely have some creative ones, cant wait to see the results! ;)

I am pushing a few different products and services, WA is just one (I have not really focused much on WA, truthfully, but that is changing hehe)...

For each, I have created a unique sales funnel, then added in a set of emails through my AR, and planned for upsells and downsells as appropriate...

It is not that hard to do, and in the case of WA, once set up, these funnels are evergreen in nature, as in you tweak but can let them run and run ...and run...

Sales funnels are great for services like WA, and products too, as in shops or tools to help the IM folk out there. You can really do a lot that complements the content marketing we focus on here...

I would caveat this by saying the fundamentals are essential and these you pick up early in the training here. More advanced aspects of online marketing are also covered in the later training...

In sales funnels, you focus on just the essentials of your offer and do not have any distractions that might draw away the viewer. As I said there is training here (Kyle, I and others have published such training, just do a search and you will see)...

Loving this stuff, can you tell? : )

Cheers!

I love internet marketing talk that no one else understands, without a website and going through it. I'm focusing on WA this year, BingAds, and Facebook are my two I'm going to focus on the most for PPC, get them to my Black Friday Page that lists all the awesome features of running a full time business for only $0.82 a day.

I'm starting to understand more and more about the upper levels of the marketing aspect, every time I think I have it all figured out, there is even more! ha

I love the stuff too!

We are going to be allowing people to register a free account that hit this page (prior to it being Black Friday). Just working on getting this up and it should be live tomorrow.

Question. If I share the Black Friday offer to someone, does that mean they cannot start out as a Starter member? Since he will have a limited time to take the BF offer. What if he needs more information to check out the community and membership so he can make an educated decision to go Premium? I've a feeling I have to meet up with him and explain WA to him in order for him to see the benefits of his first year becoming a Premium member.
Reply
Kyle Premium
They can still start out as a Starter member if they want, of course if they want to take you up on the offer, they will have to pay for the Black Friday yearly membership.

Get her in NOW, so he can check out WA leading up to the offer (as a starter member), then the offer within the community will naturally take it's course.

WOW!!! Kyle this is exciting! I love how you and Carson are keeping WA in the forefront of the cutting-edge with constant upgrades, updates and bonus offers.

I recently went yearly at the standard price and if I can afford it would love to add another year at the reduced price of $299.

And, I got to know more about "Full-Time Revenue Opportunities Directly Within WA." Very interesting indeed.

Thanks Kyle. :)

Kyle Premium
Yeah, if it works for you, you can definitely add an entire year to the end of your membership and get in on the lower yearly rate of $299 moving forward. :)

Thanks Kyle, it's always good when I 'm able to reduce my business costs. $299 ongoing yearly is fantastic. :)

My monthly renewal is due Nov. 22 and my card will be charged $49 on that date, If I want to take advantage of the Black Friday offer which takes effect on the 24th does that mean that my annual period begins on Dec. 22 because I already paid $49 for Nov. 22 to Dec. 21? .
Reply
Gordon-D Premium
Got an Idea that if you take it up during the deal period you will be charged Pro-Rata so I'm led to believe
Reply
Kyle Premium
Let it rebill, that is fine. We will take into consideration your $49 payment so it will be reduced by around $45-46 from the price point. We pro-rate it. . :)

Great news, Kyle...

I will be doing a major push for WA this year, along with some other affiliate tools and services.

This year I am using a premium Sales Funnel Service that will allow me to have multiple campaigns running simultaneously...

The landing, thank you and bonus pages are set to automatically appear as prospects go through each level of the funnels...

I have an autoresponder and sets of emails for the sales ready and loaded as well...

The work done now should bring in some major conversions over the next 4 weeks as we move from Black Friday to Cyber Monday and beyond...

Thanks for the update on the WA annual sale, ready and willing here! Good stuff...

Cheers!

I was promoting WA at my day job to a few of my coworkers and also some of my family members who are interested.

They appeared interested but I am going to tell them about this awesome offer and hopefully, this will further convince them WA is a win win for starting their online business. Great timing Kyle!

Hi Kyle! Just to clarify last year black Friday promotion was similarly great. You also said that if those who grab the opportunity will pay that price from now on (it was in 2016) no matter what the "new" price might be. Does that still stand to be true?
Thank you!

My monthly payment is due just a day before the Black Friday. If I upgrade to Yearly on Black Friday, will I get a pro-rated amount at this discounted price: "You pay only $xxx today because you have xx days remaining on your Monthly Billing Cycle"?
Thanks again for the great additions and improvements, and for the wonderful Black Friday deal!

Completely fine, it is pro-rated and it will take your last payment and time left on that payment into consideration. So your BF discount will be discounted even more, by about $47.

What an incredible offer, but unfortunately I'm not in the position to take advantage of it and if I read correctly, this will be the last time that this discount will be offered.

But..........................nothing will stop me!

Hi Kyle,

Last year in Nov'16 I made $23.50 (though I was only 2 months in) but this year, I'm earning in the 3 digits and hopefully even close to 4 digits! Lol

Thanks for those bullet points (2017 & 2018), will add them to my email and blog campaigns!

FYI - the Black Friday link goes to New Premium page still, doesn't go to a place holder as you said down below.

Can't wait!!

HI Littlemama
can you briefly in simple terms what is being talked about here and how to participate as i have not made any single sale, am two weeks old finalizing website content and i hear black friday since you said in Nov 16 you made two digit how did you do it, please
Reply
littlemama Premium
Back in Nov 16, I was two months into building my business, you've only been here for six days.

You must learn how to build your online business with the training here. Have you started with the lessons in the GREEN button on the left menu? If you have, then that's good, you have to keep learning and go through all levels of the training and build your site along with your lessons. In this business, you may or may not make money quickly. This is a long term thing and you must learn first, apply what you've learned and eventually, you will make money with your site.

Hope this helps,

Hi yes am reading and I want to complete all lesions I have developed websites before using Dreamweaver platform but the sites were not for business hence the business concept integrating on website is the most important part I get from the lesion how does selling work on website is a unique technique once I finish all the lesions I may be able to have a full understanding of it--that is why I ask experience people like you who have sold online so that I expand my learning

It's just hard to explain it all in a comment box, you need to just get through the lessons and do the tasks at the end of each lesson to build your site together with your education. You will do well if you stick with the training. :)
