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 2.7+ 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 Premium + Free Domain ($49) = $10 one-time commmission
Premium
Monthly ($49/mth)
= $11.25/mth recurring commissions
Premium
Yearly ($497/year)
= $115/year recurring commissions

Initial Premium Plus+ + 2 FREE DOMAINS ($99)
= $20 one-time commission
Premium Plus+
Monthly ($99/mth)
= $23.25/mth recurring commissions
Premium Plus+
Yearly ($697/year)
= $160/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 Premium + Free Domain ($49) = $20 one-time commmission
Premium
Monthly ($49/mth)
= $23.50/mth recurring commissions
Premium
Yearly ($497/year)
= $230/year recurring commissions

Initial Premium Plus+ + 2 FREE DOMAINS ($99)
= $40 one-time commission
Premium Plus+
Monthly ($99/mth)
= $46.50/mth recurring commissions
Premium Plus+
Yearly ($697/year)
= $320/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 17 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.

Imagine this. If you can get just 3 PEOPLE in the entire world of 5.25 BILLION Internet users to purchase a yearly Premium Plus+ membership every day, you would $350,400 per year in passive income!

Add your goals here within the following thread.

==> ADD YOUR GOALS: What are your WA Promotional Goals in 2022?

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!

Task 3: Watch the Affiliate Program Walk through

Here is an introduction video to Wealthy Affiliate. This is going to give you an overview of your stats pages and show you around the set-up of your affiliate account.

 


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

Task 4: Officially Join the Affiliate Bootcamp

We run promotions throughout the year and update our affiliate program regularly. We want to keep you informed of any timely offers that you can take advantage of. We will also be able to connect with you to offer specialized training, promotional materials, motivation, and new advancements to the Bootcamp course.

I am on Lesson 9 in the affiliate marketing bootcamp training. I've written my Wealthy Affiliate review but now I'm feeling a little lost.

Here are my questions:

1. Affiliate link. Where do I find my affiliate link and what keywords should I use as my anchor text? Or do I just create CTA phrases throughout my blog post?

2. Images. How do I add images to my SiteContent page before I publish my blog post?

3. Feedback. How do I request people who have created successful WA review blogs to take a look at my post before I publish it? Or am I just overthinking things and this is unnecessary?

Hi

Programs details

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/share

You can create input your link in specs, images, highlighted text or a CTA between text lines. If you edited a document in site content and published it, future edits has to be done in WordPress. Site content and WordPress work independently.

I'd place my images in a document in site content and publish it to my site. it will be added to my WordPress media library. Then delete the “temporary image” doc in site content so that it does not get indexed as well.

I am premium ever since I started WA, but my progress has not reached the level of income status.

Writing content is a great strain and setback for me, there are times I wonder if I am in the right business, but when I think of it all, either way, to make it in this world I have to be persistent and stick to what I want.

I started in 2019 and I am still here, I intended to see the result I am here for which is to succeed financially, lord knows I am struggling to keep up with my bills and this is the only way I intended to do so, I am seeing too many successes for me not to reach there too.

Thanks, Kyle for this program, because every other program I view and would try, it reverts me right back to WA.

So there is nothing out there that is any easier, besides doing the work that is required to be successful than WA.

Thanks for listening to my cry.

Hi

Thank you for you notes. We hear you.

However, I would keep adding content at the rate of 2 - 3 posts a week a niche a site, and sharing onto social media platforms to keep attracting organic traffic to my sites.

Kindly let us know when needing help or have further questions.

Sorry to hear it's been rough going for you. I just started about three months ago, and I'm moving slowly. The only thing I know is to keep going, keep adding content and don't give up.

Since you've been at it since 2019, you are closer to success. Hang in there, you can do it.

What would I put on my website? my niche is geared towards people who have disabilities and who want to be successfull and independent hence have some extra money. Would I just do a review of wealthy affiliate explaining all the benefits you get and how it's fun and exciting?
Reply
michaelw777 Premium
I would just treat People with Disabilities the way you would treat normal People. If for instance; like anyone; if you talk down to them? They probably will not bother with you.

If you want to say in for instance your URL; that you are aiming for People with Disabilities? Go for it.

But, I highly suggest you keep your pitch the same as you would to anyone.

Hope this helps and encourages?

Yeh my url has the word disabilities in it. But I'm just confused as to what kind of content I would put on my website?? Would I do a review of wealthy affiliate? Or?

People that have disabilities don't like to be reminded of it, you should call them special clients instead.

Hi - you will be expected to write hundreds of articles for your website, and as you are following the Boot Camp training, all of your content should be about how to make money online.

If you are already struggling with what to write about, perhaps you have chosen the wrong niche for you. Some people find it easier to follow the Online Entrepreneur course and choose a niche they are genuinely interested in and have some knowledge and experience of. For example, pets, beauty, cars, travel, or diet etc.

Angell70 Premium
Jared, people with disabilities (that includes all sorts of disabilities) are the same people as anyone, just with different views different approaches different health and lifestyle.
As Diane said here is the AB training, so you should focus on promoting and helping people to make money.

This here is the one you should focus on at 1st to completely understand what is all about and how to manage every single aspect of online entrepreneurship, have you finished the OC?

Disability, I truly believe this is an amazing niche and soon I'll post the training with niche, also you can find others here

Finally, got this section done. It proved more challenging than I had thought it would be because WordPress has completely changed since the last time I used it. I appreciate Kyle's methodical walkthrough. Without it, I would never have been able to get it done on my own. Now I'm ready for the next step.
