WA Super Affiliate Program
There are several ways that you can promote Wealthy Affiliate. With the emergence of social media marketing strategies, the ever changing PPC world, SEO and regularly Google Panda updates, email marketing, and with the article marketing and submission world quickly changing, it is our goal to keep you on top of the changes. Our affiliate techniques will deliver you with marketing techniques that work now, not last year and not even yesterday.
1. Pay Per Click (PPC) Marketing
PPC marketing is a "paid" marketing technique, so unless you have a budget set aside to promote Wealthy Affiliate, we suggest you skip this until you have some seed money.
Because of recent changes at Google, we do not recommend using their Google Adwords platform for any make money product (at this point anyways). They tend to be very stringent on their rules and suspend accounts like they are going out of style. In fact, over 1 MILLION accounts have been suspended since 2010!
Instead, we recommend using Microsoft Adcenter, which manages the ads for both Bing and Yahoo search. They are a less difficult to work with than Google, and they allow you to promote Wealthy Affiliate, assuming that you are providing relevant content based on the keywords that you are promoting.
The advantage to using PPC is that once you find the right audience to sell to and have your website optimized, referring people to WA will run on auto-pilot for you. You can hyper target the keywords you are promoting and the positioning of your ads, and as long as your website is converting, it will continue to convert as long as your ads are live.
Facebook Ads is also another PPC channel that you can use to promote Wealthy Affiliate. You can either pay to promote your website (directly), or you can promote your Fan Page in attempt to get more likes. If you want to learn more about Facebook Ads, visit the Facebook Ads page within your Facebook account.

2. Article Marketing
Article marketing essentially works like this. You write a 400-500 word article target a keyword that you discover by doing Target Audience research. You then submit your article to an article directory like StreetArticles.com, where it then gets ranked. You are essentially taking advantage of the sites "clout" to get your article ranked. Then you can add links within the article that go to your own website promoting Wealthy Affiliate, free traffic that you can leverage to earn you consistent sales!
Building a relationship with people before you promote Wealthy Affiliate has proven to be a very effective technique for generating very high conversion rates. In fact, some of our most successful affiliates utilize pure email marketing campaigns. They work essentially like this:
You obtain traffic => You send people to a page where you offer something in exchange for their email address => They sign-up => you email them and build relationship by helping them => they trust you and you build a rapport with them => they listen to your product recommendations and you earn $$$
That is the process in a nutshell. Unlike a single visitor to your website, it is far easier to build a relationship with some through regular emails and regular "help". We have a resource dedicated to promote Wealthy Affiliate via email marketing which also includes some sample emails. If you already have a list or want to build a list, this resource is for you.
Social Media Marketing
Like, Tweet, Google +1. Socially media is part of our lives and most people don't fully understand the benefits of it. Almost all affiliates are now associated with one social network and are utilizing it as a medium to drive further sales.
