You’ve got a niche website. You monetise it with affiliate relationships. You diversify your earnings by joining a few different affiliate programs. Perfect.

Did you know you can also earn commissions from Wealthy Affiliate through your niche site and your WA profile blog too?...without doing bootcamp..without a WA promotional website.

In this training we will see how you can use your own unique WA affiliate link to earn extra revenue. It might be overkill to use every method in the one site. You can choose which ones are most appropriate out of these 6 WAys to affiliate with WA.

  1. WA Referrals
  2. New WA Memberships
  3. Site Rubix Free Websites (indirectly)
  4. Site Domains
  5. Create Trainings and Tutorials
  6. Jaaxy Affiliate Program

First, Find Your WA Affiliate Link.

Each Wealthy Affiliate member (free or paid) is allocated a unique affiliate link with a lifetime cookie.

You can find your unique link in these places at WA...

  • on your profile page
  • at the bottom left of this screen.. go to WA Affiliate Program - Program Details.
  • in the black aeroplane button top of the page.

What does your affiliate link do?

On your profile page, click the box marked affiliate link. Your unique code will drop down. Copy and paste the link into a new tab in your browser to see how it works.

It takes you to the Wealthy Affiliate landing page. Notice up in the browser that your affiliate link is attached there too, right within the WA URL. Here is how mine appears in the browser http://www.wealthyaffiliate.com/a_aid/d7a7a687

When a visitor clicks on your affiliate link to WA, you get tagged for that referral. The affiliate who helps a visitor take action will get the commission payment.

Hi

That's quite a few to be getting on with and done properly would take time to set up along with developing your niche website.

I've just finished level 5 of the course so I'm now going to start looking into these affiliate links within WA.

I expect WA will have new opportunities evolving as time goes on and I'm looking forward to finding out as I expect you are to!

What if I just want a domain name without the hosting??

You can buy a domain name at Wealthy Affiliate and have it hosted elsewhere...go daddy , namecheap, blue host. Only problem is they font give the training and support as with Wealthy Affiliate.

So just to confirm, if I don't become a Paid Jaaxy Affiliate and I refer someone who upgrades I will still receive commissions as above $8 for pro and $20 for Enterprise or $200 for Yearly even as a FREE JAAXY Member?? I am a WA Premium member. Is that correct?

Thanks
Reply
whitsunday Premium
Hi Milton. Yes. You can promote Jaaxy and earn normal commission rates without being a Jaaxy paid member.

Personal note; I pay my WA membership fees annually using the Black Friday discount each November. This cost saving pays for my monthly Jaaxy membership.
Janelle.
Reply
MILTONKADLER Premium
Cool. I will incorporate jaaxy into my promotions. I wonder how that would work with the yearly premium membership as I am already a Yearly Member since last month. Is their a way around this? Cheers
Reply
whitsunday Premium
Are you referring to black Friday discount for WA annual membership?
That only comes around once each year. If you want to grab it, they will adjust it to fit with what you have already paid. You never get ripped off at WA.
An announcement is usually made by Kyle when the time comes closer.
Cheers buddy.

Wow, thats fantastic. Wonder how that works with affiliate payments if the affiliate has already been paid the $175??

Janelle, quick question. Is the link to get credit for tutorials automatic or is it necessary to do something extra?
Reply
whitsunday Premium
Hi Helen. When you create a tutorial and publish, WA monitors the responses/likes. Credit is automated...so all you need to do is publish and get it in front of as many members as possible.
The key to getting more credits is to keep the tutorial updated. Announce your updates and link to your tutorial.
Also from time to time new info comes to light regarding your tutorial. You can blog about this and link back to your training. Follow Marion Black to see an expert in action.
Go well from Janelle

Hi Janelle, very well done! Great ideas to use in even our niche sites. Never thought of adding a "back story" like that and mentioning the domain names, Jaaxy, and free websites. I've only mentioned a bit about where I started in my "about me" page on my first niche site linking it to here.
Thanks for sharing, I'm bookmarking this one so I remember to add these to my websites soon.
Best wishes :) ~Sherry

Hi. Yes the back story helps your audience relate to you and builds trust because they come to know more about what you are trying to achieve. People want to connect to others in their 'tribe'.

1 referral = $1USD. I wish it was $100.00 but no! It can add up though with conversions to Premium. Thanks for the comment. J

Hi J,
The pleasure is mine and you're welcome. So for clarity, a premium member who makes a referral who goes premium earn $23.50 recurring per month per referral,correct?
Reply
whitsunday Premium
As of April 2016 it will be $23.50 per month . Today ( march 2016) it is $22.50.
Two referrals almost covers your membership fee.

Hi, I did not understand how to make affiliate link in page 5 for site domains. In the step two you say 'Open a new tab at paste it...'. Not sure what this means. Where to open a new tab? Perhaps you might add a few more details in the procedure

Thank you.

Hi Jovo. Thank you for pointing out this part of my training that could use elaboration. I see what you mean. I have tried to make it more clear but please don't hesitate to ask me further questions.
Here is what I have added.

To create a Site Domain affiliate link;

Click on this link to Site Domains http://www.wealthyaffiliate.com/domains
You will see it opens the Site Domains page in a new window, leave it open.
Now switch back to your WA Profile page in the other tab and open your default affiliate link.
Copy your unique ID which includes the figures from ? to the last number.
Go back to the Site Domains page and Paste your affiliate ID at the end of the WA Domains URL.

Notice there is no forward slash in the URL. It goes straight from domains to ? and then the rest of YOUR ID.

Go really well from Janelle.

Thank you Janelle.
I got a few things that I wasn't aware of especially what to do with my 'About Me' page. I also created training and didn't realize I could earn from it. I did it because I thought it would be useful and it turned out great, people like it and even rated it 10 out of 10! My first ever training! Like you said, think value to the reader and the rest will take care of itself. I have a question though. How current is current for the resource? Is it after a week or is it for as long as people keep engaging with the resource?

I also didn't think about keywords when I wrote my blogs - something to keep in mind.

This was extremely helpful, thank you.

whitsunday Premium
Hi Daniel. Thanks for checking in on my training. In answer to your question about current training resources...
To keep a resource current simply update it as changes occur or when you have new information to add. ..just like you would do on your website. The WordPress trainings will keep their authors busy because of fresh upgrades. Notify your readers by blog when you update a training.
Your own first training about mermaids and wet cerebellums seems like an evergreen to me. You would only change it when your knowledge evolves. Kyle tips that updating/ refreshing is key to successful trainings.
By the way, I live on a boat and am immersed in lakes and rivers and oceans a lot. I can totally relate to your water theory.
Go well from Janelle.

Yes it is a massive learning curve.Just keep taking one step forward at a time. I'm still learning too, every day.
One of our colleagues here have a site about classic cars. He earns WA commissions from one tiny WA banner at the bottom of his posts. You only need two referrals to convert to premium and you have covered the cost of your own membership. Sweet.
