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
Monthly ($49/mth) = $11.25/mth recurring commissions
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
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!

Direction: Helping people that are stressed and need direction in life, step by step in helping them become a better version of themselves.
Brand Name: Life Revamp With Affiliate Marketing (LRAM?)
Goal: teach affiliate marketing to anyone and everyone with insights on health, goals, habits when they want to better themselves.

Although a bit more niche, I'm sure this scenario of direction is what some may internally feel when wanting get out of the struggle they are in/dilemma they are facing with money and want a direction to go in.

Let me know what you guys think with my Direction, Brand Name, Goal any insight is much appreciated
IvanBroz Premium Plus
All in all, you've got a great idea. I like the name. And you can definitely leverage the program here to succeed in this niche. I'm guessing you're geared toward promoting WA then, right?
michaelw777 Premium
This sounds like a great Niche Idea; and in fact; you could broaden it to cover health and diet in general. Just saying; if you want to? You could broaden this to cover Health and Diet too.

Hope this helps and encourages?

Whoever would like to take on this question...I personally tried Bluehost n WIX before locating WA. Not to put anyone down, but these two can't compare to WA for many reasons. Would it be unethical to mention these two in my review for comparison reasons? I don't anyone to look bad, those are not my intentions.
I'm waiting for answer
CountessCtry Premium
So what answer are you looking for? Are you trying to write a review? How can I help?
miloncashgal Premium
Is it unethical to mention Bluehost or Wi
Kyle Premium Plus
Sure, you can compare products and services. That is a good way to help your visitors understand what is the best option, and obviously no hosting company on it's own can compete with the service here at WA...not just on a hosting level, but with everything else that is included within the platform and community.
MikeHamidy Premium
I checked my affiliate link, it's going to a page with a bit old stats which is forecasting 2018. Would you like to update this landing page which is quite important to have updated data for visitors. Unfortunately, I can paste neither the screenshot nor my affiliate link here because of not being a Premium member yet :)
CountessCtry Premium
You are a premium member quite all right. Landing pages is what we make out. You may want to run an update.
MikeHamidy Premium
Thanks for the reply. I guess I need to rephrase my question :)
My affiliate link is leading to the WA landing page and on this page (which I have no access to change) there is old data. Please look at this screenshot. The graph is too old, ends with an estimation for coming 2018 ?? :) I hope that you understand me better now.
Angell70 Premium
Hi Mike, I would say maybe you want to contact site support or ask the community in the chat room.
Carson just posted the last article with the latest improvement to the platform so, maybe you can take a look at this too
MikeHamidy Premium
Thank you so much, I will do that :)
CountessCtry Premium
Yeah right we can custom do, my understanding site support fixes our sites. Live Chat is cool
MOvergaauw Premium
Hello gang, I have been going over the lessons again to get as much meat as I can. The platform layout has changed since the video was made here on lesson 9 and I don't know how to find my WA affiliate link. The tabs are different now and there seems to be no "programs details" tab. My review is getting close to completion but I have no link to WA yet.
TheAbie Premium Plus

Yes there was a system update last November. Left sidebar has now to top.

You affiliate link would be the $ sign top menu.

Program details

I was thinking about making my niche in the Fitness Industry, should I make it more focused or just talk about all the different aspects of fitness? Just needing some ideas to get the ball rolling. Should you do more than one of these or just stick to one at a time?
Also I am drawing a total blank on my site name, not sure how to run with that in the field I’m wanting.
Is Local Marketing a good one to try as well? Would that make it just about me trying to help local businesses and people market themselves or their companies?
CountessCtry Premium
As we are now in the Affiliate Bootcamp is the (make money online niche) I want to write lots of content addressing issues in making money. You need to see what type of audience (see resource below) you want to reflect on and resonate with you, may have knowledge with them and can reach out to them through your content. I was recommended to do the whole thing before starting work on my site and to only focus on wanting to do your own niche or the Bootcamp. For own I would choose something that resonates with me, could be a hobby, interest, a side hustle, something I know about and can write lots of original content. Anything rings the bell? it is important to know who your target audience is gonna be, who you are writing to and once you figure this out, it becomes easier coming up with a niche. Please reach out if you need help or a hand.
Wishing you well, continued success and a terrific day.
CountessCtry Premium
I name what resonates best with me but with a siterubix subdomain can be changed if you made a mistake versus a dot come url once purchased cannot be changed. WA has a lot of local marketing resources .
DianeScorpio Premium
Hi - this training course is for those who want to use make money online as their niche and promote WA. If you prefer to use your own choice of niche, you need to switch back to the OEC course, as it will be more suitable.
Angell70 Premium
Hi Eric, you can check my site to see as I have the same niche as you if this is what you are passionate ab. just don't copy as you won't be seen good.
Fitness is a broad niche and you can write and expand anything you want.
michaelw777 Premium
I just said this to someone: Other Members please correct if wrong? But, I think you are in the wrong training; what you are looking for is Online Entrepreneur Certification. If I am wrong? Other Members please correct?
michaelw777 Premium
You know what? I just said this to someone; i think you are in teh wrong training program. You want Online Entrepreneur Certification. Right now you are in Affiliate Bootcamp.

Other Members please correct if wrong? But, I think I am right; you are in the wrong training program.

Hope this helps and encourages?
Kyle Premium Plus
I would recommend that you narrow it down a bit, what aspect of "fitness" do you want to help people out with?

When deciding on a niche and trying to narrow down to a more specific niche, I recommend you ask yourself the following question:

I want to help people that ______________.

Fill in the blank and you are going to be much closer to a specific audience. After you do this and if you want to run any further ideas by me, let me know and I will give you a hand. :)
