+$2,200 in 20 hours - This Works!

Last Update: June 22, 2020

Many of you who read this are probably just starting out here at Wealthy Affiliate and thinking about questions such,

  1. "Does Wealthy Affiliate really work?
  2. Can I really make money online?
  3. Can I succeed even though I don't have any prior experience of affiliate marketing?"

Let me answer in 3 words: "YES! YES! YES!"

Here's a longer answer in 8 words; "YES! THIS WORKS BETTER THAN YOU CAN EXPECT!"

When I started out here, I wrote my goal that I'd be super excited to make 2,000€/month ($2,275/month) online.

To be completely honest with you, I thought it's hardly even possible. I didn't fully believe I could make it myself.

Now recently I made that same amount in 1 single day! (it actually happened already in February but I wanted to post about it here only after I really got the money in my bank account.)

Here are 5 takeaways and thoughts that I wanted to share with you regarding this nice experience.

5 Takeaways From a +$2,2k Day

1. I made two +$1,000 commissions from a high-ticket affiliate training program that I recently started promoting.

=> It's easier to make money online with big commissions. I started off at WA by reviewing books on my first site. If you manage to sell a $10 book on Amazon for a 4% commission, you'll make only $0,40.

You would need to sell 2,500 such books to make a similar money that you would earn with a single $1,000 commission.

Of course, you need to make sure that that product you promote is worth promoting and providing real value to your audience. I spent 2-3 months first to make sure the program is worth promoting.

2. Email Marketing makes things so much easier in the long run. I was especially happy with this +$2k day because it came 'relatively easy'. I basically needed to send a few emails that made me the commissions.

Of course, I have needed to do a lot of work beforehand to build an email list. But once you have it, it's a huge asset that makes things easier. You can promote products to a 'warm' or 'hot' audience instead of random website visitors.

You have the power to send a email to 100's or even 1,000's of targed people quickly.

3. This is NOT a typical day for me (yet). When I started here, I saw some guys posting that they made +$10,000/month in December and November.

I thought like, "Wow! They're now making +$10,000/month passive income online with affiliate marketing and they could retire if they want." -> completely false thinking!

First, this was a highlight day, not a typical day.

Second, if I want to make similar days in the future, it'll most likely require work/effort and will not come 100% passively.

However, I'm obviously not going to stop here and I'll pursue for more! I know there are many people within the Wealthy Affiliate community who have made much, much more than $2,2k in a day and for them this is just a pocket money! ;)

That just illustrates the huge potential with this 'internet marketing thing'.

I'm sure that at some day in the future, $2,2k will be my typical day. It will obviously take a lot of time + effort to get there. What an amazing feeling to think about it and start working towards there.

What are YOU planning to achieve? :)

4. ANYBODY CAN. I say this always because it's the truth.

If you're a human being and you can read & write English, you can make a nice income with affiliate marketing online.

It's not a matter of whether or not you can, it's a matter of whether or not you will. For example, this week I relaxed too much. I know that if I'd keep on relaxing like that constantly, I'd start sliding down with my online business.

So, you'll need to put in the effort consistently. Then you can achieve anything. Remember also to ask questions from more experienced members often for guidance.

5. You'll most likely achieve much more than you've ever expected or imagined IF you keep on working and never quit.

I know 10's of full-time Internet marketers personally. When I've talked with them, I realized that almost all of them have achieved much more in their Internet marketing careers than they ever expected.

Internet marketing is a much more profitable path for you than almost any 9-5 job. Not only in terms of money but also in how many people you can impact positively and other things.

Even though I have still decades to go on this journey, it already amazes me how many people I can reach at this point.

Imagine that you can literally impact 1,000,000's of lives positively during your lifetime if you use the Internet. That's just mind-boggling and extremely exciting!


Conclusion: If I can do it, YOU can do it!

Here's a short recap of the 5 points.

  1. You'll earn more money if you promote products with bigger commissions.
  2. Email marketing makes things easier (in my personal opinion and experience).
  3. This is NOT a typical day for me yet but it will be in the future.
  4. Anybody can achieve even much greater results. You can as well.
  5. You'll achieve more than you've expected during your journey at Wealthy Affiliate.

Think about the last point.

Those who are here at Wealthy Affiliate just for the short-term will most likely achieve less than they expected.

But those continue and aim for the long-term will make much more than they even imagined is possible.

Hi Roope,

Congratulations! on your big commissions.

You certainly deserve it because of the upfront
work you have done.

Quick question: If you think WA works, why you
are promoting another high ticket affiliate training?

The core of WA teaching is SEO and other good
training on email marketing is done by Jay.

You said, you made the sales by sending emails.

The leads you send these emails to, have you got
them through organic traffic or paid or solo ads?

Have you provided any bonuses, so that these
people signup through your affiliate link?

I am asking these questions because, I noticed
some people who promote WA preaching that
WA works.

Yes WA works, but the core training of WA is SEO.

But when these people are making referrals through
social media or paid ads(which they are good at even
before WA training), whats the point of saying that WA

The only reason I can think of is this-they have starter
members you haven't upgraded to premium yet.

When they make blog posts in WA shouting that WA
works, these referrals are notified through email, they
read these blogs and are influenced to become premium.

In the end, these guys are looking for commissions instead
of teaching how their business actually works.

Heh. Well, there are many ways to look at things.

Wealthy Affiliate works and it changed it my life completely. You are free to think about it whatever you want but all I can say that I'd like to share the same blessing with you as well and help you succeed.

And yes, other training courses can compliment WA because they teach things from different perspective

Your first point is one I've thought about many times. I, too, have a lot of books on my site, and I know they won't make me much money. I have some larger-ticket items as well, but nothing that will make me really big commissions. I'm seeking out possibilities.

The other thing I really need to do is get an email list going. i have a folder of names, but haven't done anything with them yet. Sometimes it is hard to figure out what to do first,when everything needs doing. I'll get there.

Thanks for the good post. You have given us some good things to think about.
RoopeKiuttu Premium Plus
Yeah, promoting books is hardly going to make a full-time income unless there's a HUGE volume. Start learning email marketing by watching Jay's webinars here at WA. They got me started
FKelso Premium Plus
Thanks -- I will. I'm also looking for more higher-ticket items.

RK: Have you achieved nice results recently
Yes, great people at WA. Many success doors are now widely open because of their sharing/caring

RK: What kind of actions helped you to achieve them
Follow the WA river flow, get involved to know WA family better

RK:What tips would you give for a beginner at WA
- your side of perfection is what brought you to WA with all the dream about it, keep, love & never loose it or FAIL (wouldnt find happiness as the ultimate success)
- build a trust at WA, people will trust you out there
- money/wealthy only measure your achievement, not your success. Your success can only be measured by how greatful you're with all the achievement (= even poor people could taste success). If you couldnt even feel any greatful, you're just developing enemies since or killing your own soul/perfection.
- there's a mountain mt. Achievement which top called wealthy and the name for achiever is richman/lord.
There's also mt. Success which peak called noble, and the achiever called: noble man and certified as Die Smiling. Love is the key that make you a noble man, because you will share and care. Love is what you have since you're born, you loose it you FAIL already.

I hope my answer good enough :)
Glad to hear your success Roope, truly happy for you. Thank you

Congrats on finding what sounds like a great niche. Very inspiring.
Do you have any suggestions on the best places to research 'high paying' niches?
RoopeKiuttu Premium Plus
Make money online niche/industry has a lot of products with big commissions. One reason is that they're usually digital products so it's eaiser to pay bigger. However, it's also probably the most competitive industry of all on the Internet so that's the drawback.
Eliz65 Premium
Thanks for the info. I’m thinking of starting my second niche... need to do some researching. I’ll check out Make money online niche/internet.
RoopeKiuttu Premium Plus
Yeah. Then I recommend that you focus in 1 (max. 2) niches until you'll make a breakthrough.
