How Long Does It Take to Make Money with Wealthy Affiliate


This seems to be a recurring question that people ask,coming both from community members and “interested” people. It crops up incomments on the websites.

Answers I have given in the past have ranged from:

“I don’t know.”

“how long is a piece of string?”

“It depends on the knowledge you have / knowledge you learnand how much time you can study and how good a niche you choose and……”

To:

“It will take some time to study the courses and practicewhat you have learnt.”

To:

“How long have you got? And

How much do you want to make?”







The Perfect answer:

I guess there is no perfect answer because it depends on so many factors that I am unaware of.

Even if I knew all the circumstances, I still could not guarantee to give a qualified, reasonable answer.

The genuine answer is: “I do not know, for you.”

Truth is it is in your hands and at the same time it is not in your hands. Hard problem to solve.

Thanks Steven.
It is a problem I come across regularly and I wondered how other members answer that question.
It has become one of the mysteries of life that will probably never be resolved, for me.

Maybe we can give advice in the same way as the rude answer suggestion then tell you we gave you the perfect answer.

With so many variables, good luck getting the perfect answer.

My answer would be: As long as it takes. However, that is not what people want to hear.

Thanks Sheila, you have hit the nail on the head. what is it people want to hear and I think most would like to hear that they will be rich tomorrow morning.
A happy medium between brutal honesty and encouragement would be good and that is hard to find.

Hahaha.. I should borrow it-"type rude answers in white on a white background." Brilliant!
As for the question, I think you are right- there are so many factors that you will never know. Normally , the site matures in about half a year,or a year, I guess, but there are stories of quicker progress...:))

Thanks Vera.
I guess that a lot will depend on what a new member already knows. There are people who join already possessing experience and skills in internet marketing. some claim to have a monetised site by their third month. I have no reason to discount this since they already have a head start.

Yep, initial skills and knowledge do matter. In my observation, computer-oriented people really have a head start.:)

There is certainly a lot to learn and some things have surprised me. I mean, there are things I have found, skills that have developed and ideas I would never have had without being here in this community.
I think the fact that experienced internet marketers join , shows that there is value and depth in Wealthy affiliate for all of us.
