Welcome to the Affiliate Bootcamp!

Are you ready to learn a lot, have a bunch of fun, build a full time income and brand, and promote a platform that you can believe in, trust and that can truly help people in a positive way?

If your answer is yes, then you are definitely in the right place and I know you are going to love what we have in store for you in the upcoming lessons.

First things first though, a little run down of the affiliate program at Wealthy Affiliate and how this training will work.

Who Am I & Why Do I Care?

I am Kyle, co-founder of Wealthy Affiliate. I am going to be walking you through the process of building a business online, through the promotion of WA and likely other programs. I have been actively working with close to 2.6+ MILLION affiliates since 2005 and I have helped MANY create full time, 6-7 figure businesses online.

That is my absolute focus with you. Success.

I want to help you build a full time business and an established brand online. I also want to personally be hanging out with you every year at our fully paid for, Annual Super Affiliate Conference in Las Vegas (more on that later).

Wealthy Affiliate is mine and Carson's passion (me on left with family, Carson on right). We live and breathe Wealthy Affiliate and as time goes on, the platform here truly evolves and gets better with every day that passes. We built WA based on helping people succeed, and we don't have any plans to divert from our core principles.

If you are committed to this training, I am committed to you! That I can assure you of.

So if you are ready to do BIG things online, I am ready to help you get there. :)

The WA Affiliate Program, It's Awesome!

The affiliate program here at Wealthy Affiliate is one of the most technologically advanced, sophisticated, and progressive platforms in the world. We were born and raised in this industry as “affiliates” and we are still affiliates to this day. It's in our genetic code!

Because of this and being involved in 100’s of different affiliate programs over the years, we have a very good grasp as to what affiliates want and we are constantly working to over deliver.

There are many different aspects to the WA Affiliate Program that you can leverage to maximize your reach, revenue and overall conversions and I am going to give you a brief overview of these now. Of course as we move through the Bootcamp training, I am going to be getting more and more advanced with this training.

A few important menus I want you to understand. The first is the "$" icon in the header, if you click this you will be able to access the full affiliate resource menu (as shown below).

This menu includes several items, I am going to quickly run you through all of them and then provide you with a video walking you through the ALL aspects of the affiliate program in its entirety.

  • WA Vegas Super Affiliate Conference. This has your live countdown on "sales" needed to reach Super Affiliate status. If you reach 300 sales in a year, you will be invited to an all-expenses paid trip to Las Vegas for our annual Super Affiliate conference.
  • Your Affiliate Link. This is your unique affiliate link that you can use to promote WA, and earn commissions. If someone signs up through your link, you get full affiliate credit. Feel free to share this link wherever you like, with anyone that you think may be interested in building a business online. It could pay big dividends.

  • Program Details. This is where you can go to get full details about the Affiliate Program, the commission structures, your main affiliate link, your incentive countdown, etc.

  • My Stats. This is where you can go to get detailed information about stats and all commissions/transactions.

  • Tasks. These are all the interaction and communication (questions) that are taking place within WA in respect to your referrals. You will want to complete these as they come in, interacting with your referrals leads to much higher conversions.

  • My Referrals. This will show you all your referrals that have joined through your affiliate link, both Starter and Premium.

  • Links & Tracking. This is where you can to get all of your affiliate links, to create your own tracking links, and to add tracking for services like Google Adwords, BingAds.com and Facebook.com.

  • Messages. These are automated, follow-up messages that you can create for your referrals!

  • Banners. Self explanatory here, these are banners that you can use on social media, on your website, or anywhere you like that you can add a banner promoting WA.

Within the top menu, you will see the Training button within the menu. Then upon clicking that, it will open the training area and you will see the Affiliate Bootcamp training area as the second item down.

If you click this menu, it will pop open all of the phases of Bootcamp. Each Phase has 10 lessons and as you move through this training and check off the tasks, you are going to notice that the Affiliate Bootcamp button text will update to reflect which lesson you are currently on.

In other words, it is a "smart" button and will always take you back to your last completed task within the training.

Your Potential & Commission Structure.

The affiliate program at Wealthy Affiliate is not just advanced from a technology standpoint, but you are also getting one of the most appealing RECURRING commission structures in all of the affiliate marketing space.

Invites: They Join WA for Free

STARTER Member Commissions:

Initial $19 Premium offer, Commission = $4
Premium
Monthly ($49/mth) = $11.25/mth recurring commissions
Premium
Yearly ($495/year) = $117.50/year recurring commissions

Initial $49 Premium Plus+ offer, Commission = $11.75
Premium Plus+
Monthly ($99/mth) = $21.75/mth recurring commissions
Premium Plus+
Yearly ($995/year) = $232.50/year recurring commissions

If you are a Premium or Premium Plus+ member here at Wealthy Affiliate, you get double the commissions as an affiliate and you also get to take part in our $1 credit program, which allows you to earn from free members you sign-up that set-up their accounts. You also earn money with each domain your referrals buy.

Premium/Premium Plus+ Member Commissions: (100% higher commissions!!!)

Credits: They Set-up their account => $1 (per referral)
Domain Purchases
: => $1 recurring annually

Initial $19 Premium offer, Commission = $8
Premium Monthly ($49/mth)
= $23.50/mth recurring commissions
Premium
Yearly ($495/year)
= $235/year recurring commissions

Initial $49 Premium Plus+ offer, Commission
= $23.50
Premium Plus+
Monthly ($99/mth)
= $46.50/mth recurring commissions
Premium Plus+
Yearly ($995/year) = $465.00/year recurring commissions

**Note: on average 1:8 upgrade to yearly, depending on the affiliate, and 12% of all free Starter referrals end up going Premium.

When you sign-up someone for free, your goal is to get them to set-up their account. Setting up ones account will lead you to an initial $1 (2 credits x $0.50). These add up when you are a Premium member.

When someone sets up their account, they are granted an initial $19 first month offer. This converts very well and almost everyone decides to stay after the first month because of the value, the quality of the services, the help they get, and the overall positive experience offered here at Wealthy Affiliate.

We offer lifetime commissions and lifetime cookies, which is truly unheard of in the industry. If you refer someone to WA, they are your referral FOREVER.

Unlike many programs in the industry that focus on "taking advantage of customers", our focus has and always will be making our service better. The better our service gets, the more people that stick around, stick around for longer, and the better our conversions get.

That is our PATH to making you more money. Striving to make our service the best in the industry is our goal and this will remain our constant focus. The MONEY you earn as a result of this and the trust you build from the people you refer to Wealthy Affiliate will lead you to a long term and INCREDIBLE business online.

**We pay out on the 1st of every month, and we have not missed a single affiliate payment since our inception 14 years ago. We pay on time and we pay out MILLIONS of DOLLARS per year!

Task 1: Add Your Affiliate Goals!

We have created a discussion where you can add your affiliate goals, not just for the upcoming bootcamp though. I am a long term guy myself. I know what can be accomplished in a year...a year is a like a blink in time and before you know it next year is going to be here.

What if you could make 100 referrals by next year...what about 200...what about 500....a 1000? Be realistic, but be unrealistic. You never reach goals that you thought were unattainable if you never set them.

Add your goals here within the following thread.

==> ADD YOUR GOALS: What are your WA Promotional Goals in 2021?

Also, comment on AT LEAST two other people's goals within the thread. This is a community here at WA and we are all here to help and support one another in our journey towards success.

You can begin your networking now and you are going to build some awesome relationships which will only further your online success. So take a minute and encourage at least two other people with their goals as well.

I want to let you know about something as well, something that you may find exciting and intriguing.

If you can reach 300 unique referrals through the course of this year, we are going to fly you to Vegas for a private, "all expenses paid" conference (read below).

Task 2: Las Vegas, We Want YOU There in 2022!

We like to do things differently at Wealthy Affiliate. Other companies try to convince you to attend their "high ticket" conferences, we want to PAY for you to come to our conference.

Every year we run an ultra exclusive WA Super Affiliate Conference in Las Vegas, all expenses paid. You may have noticed a counter in your Airplane Icon in the header, if you can make 300 referrals in a calendar year, you are going to be personally invited by Carson and myself to hang out in Vegas next year.

Read about the experience you can expect, and the path to achieving Super Affiliate Status in 2022. Last years conference was the most powerful, amazing conference to date and we would love nothing more than to have you there next year!

DISCUSSION: Achieve SUPER AFFILIATE Status in the Year Ahead!

It is important that you go through this so you fully understand the process.

So I am doing the boot camp training and the direction of my brand to start out is to help entry level affiliates like myself to get started as I build my website and get my brand out there. The name I am thinking about is One Stop Affiliate (what do you think?} I chose that name because it will allow me to expand as I become more experienced. My question is I don't have a clue on a target audience. Any suggestions please

Hi - you have answered your own question! You have said you want to help entry-level affiliates, so they are your audience. You could perhaps narrow it down to a specific age group.

Have you changed your mind about choosing your own niche? Do be aware that the Boot Camp is very competitive, and you may potentially have to write hundreds of articles, all focusing on how to make money online.

Unless you are genuinely interested in this, it can be difficult to keep coming up with new topics to write about.

Are writing articles involved regardless of the niche chosen? I am not very creative. I am feeling kind of torn on which direction I should go
Reply
DianeScorpio Premium
Hi - yes, the articles are how you will attract visitors to your website. If all you had was a list of products, then you would be yet another shop among the millions already out there and nobody would find your website.

Here, you are taught to write in a conversations style, it doesn't have to be perfect like a school essay. So, taking what you mentioned earlier, imagine if you had bought a new air fryer and a friend was asking if it was any good. You would tell them some of its features, whether you thought it was value for money, if there was anything you didn't like etc.

I guess I could write about what I am learning as I am learning it and my progress kind of a follow me type style?

Yes, you could do that, if it interests you.

Any tips or tricks people use to come up with a name, I am honestly hopeless at coming up with names.

I was going to start an IT business many years ago, never did just could not come up with a name for it, ended up working for a company for most of my working life instead.

Which if you have read my bio, well you know what happened to them hence why I am here trying to keep a roof over my kids heads and food on the table for them.

honestly I am so bad at names if it was not for my wife I'm not sure even my kids would have names yet.

I like to have multiple irons in the fire for diversification. I currently have a Niche and website established that is serving technology. I am now thinking about adding a niche that targets the WA brand support and helping people.

Does two brands make sense or is that too fragmented or spread out. I only have 20hrs per week available and the tech brand can be quite consuming. I would have a tech brand and a helping people brand.

Any thoughts are greatly appreciated,
Chris

Hi awesomely beautiful , you'd want separate the two. Your own tech niche would be different to your MMO (make money online niche) I would certainly run two separate domains.

However worth it yes indeed. Hope you do really well and wishing you success on your online journey.

Thank you for the response AbieAJ. I will work with a separate domain then.

Learnt a lot in this task. At this stage, I am learning and taking notes and when I'm ready I will embark on the final task of creating a website. And revisit various tasks to refresh if required. Don't know if this is the right way, but I feel comfortable this way as I'm not very good at this.

You might want to rethink that. Consider building as you go. It mush easier. But whatever makes you comfortable Muran..

Great going, awesome rappot.

Please follow the Affiliate Bootcamp coursework, it is recommended to read it in its entirely before commencing on your site. You'd want write lots of content 300 - 400 articles to be able scratch the surface, as the make money online niche is a lot harder and more competitive than own niche.
