I started from the bottom but thanks to the Wealthy Affiliate program I’m now making around $688 per DAY and growing..

I have learned so much a long the way.

So I thought I’d write this Wealthy Affiliate review and share my results for anyone who is interested in obtaining financial freedom!

..So let’s get started!

How I Went From Broke And Living With My Parents To Making Over $600 Per Day Thanks To The Wealthy Affiliate Program..

So there was this guy, I’m sure you’ve heard of him..

His name was Mark Twain and he said..

“The 2 most important days in your life are the day you were born and the day you find out why.”

Now I’m not saying that I know my purpose in life yet but I feel like I’m getting closer to it.

You see, not that long ago my life was a mess.

I was 27 years old and still living with my parents.

When I was at school I was more interested in messing around with friends than learning so I finished my education with not a lot going for me.

As you’d expect, it was tough to get a good job with no real qualifications so I spent the next 10 years laboring for local building firms.

Every single day that I had to get up at 5am I’d kick myself for not paying attention at school.

But hey, on the sunny days at least I got a good tan. 🙂

The truth is I was 27 years old and I had absolutely nothing to show for the 10 years of work since I had left school.

So one evening after a long day at work I found myself Googling “how to make money” and stuff like that.

It wasn’t long before I found the Wealthy Affiliate program which is all about affiliate marketing.

It looked interesting so I decided to create a free account.

At this point I knew nothing about affiliate marketing or making money online.

But after going through the first chapter I began to learn and understand.

It’s all about traffic and conversions.

You get traffic to your website and make money when people buy through your affiliate link.

So I decided to became a paid member.

It was only $19 for the first month and I could afford that.

I went through all of the Wealthy Affiliate training material in my spare time after work.

It was encouraging that there were lots of people posting about their success inside the forum area.

Like this..

Seeing their success motivated me to keep going and wanting to learn more.

The Wealthy Affiliate system is all about choosing a niche, building a website and then making sales when those visitors buy something through your affiliate links.

Here, I made a diagram to explain it to you..

It didn’t take me too long to go through the training so I got started right away!

So I found a niche.

For example “getting rid of man boobs is” is a niche.

There’s thousands and thousands of niches out there that you can build a site around and make money from.

I’ll talk more about this and give you lots of niches in a minute!

The next step was to find a bunch of keywords to write content for.

..In the pic below I’ve typed “manboobs” into the Wealthy Affiliate keyword tool and it’s given me lots of keywords that people are actually searching for in Google that I can write content for!

We write content around specific keywords to get them ranked in Google to get traffic.

For example one of the keywords above is “man boobs treatment”

That’s something that people actually search for in Google.

By writing content about this keyword we can get traffic to our site and then make sales by promoting a product as an affiliate that will help solve their problem.

For my first site I found around 50 keywords that I wanted to rank for in Google.

..The next thing I needed to do was build a website.

As you can expect I knew absolutely nothing about building websites at the time but thankfully the Wealthy Affiliate makes it easy with their Site Rubix website builder tool.

I pretty much had my first website setup in just a few minutes.

So now, thanks to the Wealthy Affiliate program I had..

  • Chosen a niche.
  • Found 50 keywords.
  • Built my website.

Now all I needed to do was start writing articles for my keywords.

It was a little daunting at first because I had never written an article in my life but the Wealthy Affiliate training explained how to do it so I sucked it up and got started.

I only had a couple of hours every day after work to do this internet stuff so I was only able to write one or 2 articles per day.

I find it takes me about an hour to write an article and then about an hour to edit it and make sure it’s readable.

In less than 2 months I had written an article for every single one of my keywords.

At this point I was completely going on faith.

I wasn’t making any money yet but I was doing all of this work following the Wealthy Affiliate program.

Which was pretty scary because I was putting in all this effort without really knowing if it would work.

When I finally finished writing an article for all 50 of my keywords I felt pretty disappointed because I’d made no money and saw no results.

To be honest I was on the verge of CANCELLING my Wealthy Affiliate membership and calling it quits..

..But then something strange happened.

I got home from work one day and before I went and had a shower I quickly logged onto my computer to check on my website stats.

I almost couldn’t believe what I saw next.

For some reason my website had gotten 44 visitors that day.

Which was amazing because the website had barely been getting 2 visitors before that.

After some research I discovered that a few of my articles had risen to the top of Google that day while I was at work and people were visiting my website.

But then things got even better..

Curiously I decided to log into my Clickbank account.

I almost fell off my chair when I logged into my Clickbank account to see that I had made my first ever sale for $35.96

One of those 44 visitors had actually read one of my articles and decided to buy the product I was recommending through my affiliate link.

I felt on top of the world.

But then things got really strange..

I went upstairs to have a shower and I had all these thoughts swirling around my head.

If I could make one sale then I could create more websites and make more sales.

There were so many niches and so many keywords I could target.

The possibilities were endless.

For the first time in a long time I felt optimistic and excited.

After I had showered I went downstairs to check my Clickbank account again just to make sure it wasn’t some kind of a mistake.

So I logged in again..

But I had an absolute WTF moment when I looked at my screen and saw I had $63.72 in my account.

I’d made another sale while I was in the shower!

I felt like I had won the lottery. 🙂

Since that day out of the 50 keywords that I targeted around 80% are on page one of Google.

That website now gets around 150 visitors per day and makes me about $100 per day on average..

And the cool thing is that I haven’t touched that website in months but it continues to get visitors and make me money all on autopilot.

With the success of my first website I knew that the Wealthy Affiliate program worked so I just kept on following the system.

Now that I was making $100 per day consistently I made the decision to quit my job as a laborer and do this full time.

So I decided to create 2 new websites at the same time in different niches targeting over 300 keywords.

Every keyword is a potential money maker.

So 300 keywords is essentially 300 opportunities to make money.

I like to call it rank and bank.

Well anyway now that I was working for myself I started writing 5-10 articles per day and within 2 months I had written an article for all of my 300 keywords and posted them on my new websites.

Now you may think that writing articles for 300 keywords sounds difficult but it’s really not.

I just write like I talk and the Wealthy Affiliate program teaches you how to write articles.

I sucked at English at school (thank God for spell checkers) so trust me if I can do it then you can too.

If you have a bit of money tucked away you can even outsource the writing and pay someone else to write your articles!

Anyway a part of me wondered whether the first website was a fluke.

Had I just got lucky?

Will I ever make more than $100 per day?

But after a few months my new sites were starting to rise to the top just like before.

To this day almost every single one of those 300 articles I wrote are now on page one of Google.

Before I knew it things started to get out of control and I was making more money than I ever thought possible.

Those 2 websites now make me well over $500 per DAY..

So here’s my Wealthy Affiliate results..

As you know I started off completely broke and living with my parents.

I then went through the Wealthy Affiliate training and created my first ever website targeting 50 keywords.

This website now makes me around $100 per day and I haven’t touched it in a long time..

So then I created 2 new websites in different niches targeting over 300 keywords and this is where things got crazy..

The 3 websites combined now make me around $688 per day which is around $20,000 per month!

{Affiliate marketing is pretty weird.}

I mean look at this..

On July 31st, a Sunday I made $986.93..

But on this particular Sunday I didn’t do any work as I was out hiking with my little brother!

Almost a thousand dollar day and I did ZERO work.

So yeah, affiliate marketing is {weird}. Brilliant but weird. 🙂

The thing I love about the Wealthy Affiliate program is that it’s given me knowledge.

I can now build new websites that will make money and there’s really no limit to how much we can make.

The cool thing is that there are literally thousands of niches out there and millions of keywords so there’s just so much opportunity for all of us to make money.

I’ll share some niches with you further down this page in a minute.

Since I joined the Wealthy Affiliate program my life has changed completely.

I now have my own place to live again..

I get to wake up when I want and do as much or as little work as I feel like because my sites just keep on churning out money.

I bought myself a nice new Mercedes..

And it’s just so fun getting email notifications all the time telling you that you’ve made a commission.

(Sorry, had to use the green paintbrush to edit out a few bits for privacy.)

Listen. I’m not super smart or talented but I do have one SECRET..

..I took action!

Even when I was working all day and got home feeling like a wreck I still used my spare couple of hours in the evening to take action and work on this online stuff.

If you take action then you can do it too.

You’ll be surprised at how fast things happen.

You’ll wake up one day and be like holy crap I’m at the top of Google.

Then WOW I got 100 visitors today.

Then OMG I made 2 sales.

And things will just snowball from there.

Then before you know it you’re making $500 per day or more..

So that’s my story and how I found success.

If you want to start living the life of your dreams then the Wealthy Affiliate program will help you get there.

I’ll be a member for life!

Now I’m going to go into more details about the Wealthy Affiliate in the rest of this review.

So What Is The Wealthy Affiliate Program?

To put it simply it’s an online training course that teaches you how to make money as an affiliate marketer.

The main strategy is all about getting visitors from Google and then converting them into sales.

The first thing you need to do is choose an interest or a niche.

Now I think a lot of people may make the mistake of choosing a niche that doesn’t have a lot of profit potential.

Seeing as you’re joining the Wealthy Affiliate program you want to make money right?

I recommend choosing a niche that has a lot of profit potential.

Anything to do with health and wealth has a lot of profit potential.

And there’s many niches within the health and wealth markets.

Here’s a few niche ideas for you..

  • Man boobs.
  • Gout.
  • Tinnitus.
  • Lose weight for a wedding.
  • Toenail fungus.
  • Baldness
  • Acne

Any niche where there is desperation to solve a problem is a potential money maker.

The list really is endless.

But you may think.. “I don’t know anything about getting rid of gout. How can I create a site around that?”

Well that’s easy.

Just do some research to see what’s already been written about getting rid of Gout and then create your own site about it.

I don’t mean copy other people’s content but do some research and learn about your niche and then writing becomes easy.

So if you want to make money I think it’s important to find a niche that has some sort of desperation and people willing to spend money to solve their problem.

The next step is to find keywords that people are searching for but also don’t have a lot of competition in Google.

Let’s continue with the Gout example.

(By the way if you don’t know what Gout is, it’s some nasty stuff and I hope nobody reading this ever gets it!)

Anyway a keyword is something that someone searches in Google to find information.

For example people might be searching “How to get rid of Gout” into Google and that might get searched 20,000 time per month.

Wealthy Affiliate makes it really easy to find good keywords with their awesome keyword tool.

You can literally find tons of keywords in just minutes.

So the next step after you’ve found a bunch of keywords is to create your website.

In the Wealthy Affiliate members area they have a site builder tool called Site Rubix that make it really easy to build your own website.

I mean you can get a site up in minutes.

After your site is up all you need to do then is fill it with content.

For every keyword that you found you will then write an article about that keyword.

For example if one of your keywords was “get rid of gout” then you could write an article called..

The 7 Best Ways To Get Rid Of Gout..

So if you found 50 keywords then you would need to write 50 articles but that’s not that difficult.

The more articles you write the more traffic you will get and the more money you will make.

Wealthy Affiliate premium members also get access to a helpful article writing tool to make the process quick and easy.

So this begs the question.. How do you make money?

Well that’s the easy part.

Basically in every article you write you will recommend a product as an affiliate.

So what you would need to do is find a product in your niche that has an affiliate program and you link to it in your content.

When someone clicks through from your article and buys the product you recommend you will make a commission.

The more keywords you find and the more articles you write the more traffic and sales you will get.

If you can find a product that pays a $30 commission per sale then you only need to make 10 sales per day to make $300 per day!

So that’s basically the Wealthy Affiliate system in a nutshell but inside the members area you’ll learn a lot more.

What Else Do You Get As A Wealthy Affiliate Member?

The Wealthy Affiliate Forum – I actually think this is one of the best things about the W.A program as you get to mingle with other people who are also learning and doing the same stuff as you.

I like that everyone in there is so helpful and kind.

If you ever have a question or get stuck with something and need help then just post in the forum or the chat area and you’ll get help within minutes.

And for every lesson in the W.A program there’s discussions in the forum which are very helpful to read.

I actually think my favorite part section of the forum is the “SUCCESS” section where people are posting about their successes.

Everyday there’s people in there posting about how they’ve made their first sale or had their first $1,000 day..

You can see here that Colton had his first $5,000 month thanks to the Wealthy Affiliate program..

And his first $700+ day..

And then the next month he made over $10,000!

You can read more about Colton’s first $5,000 month at – https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/coltonjames/blog/november-results-5-000-in-a-month

It’s very motivating to see all these people having success with the Wealthy Affiliate knowing that they’re learning the same thing you’re learning so if they can do it so can you..

Site Rubix – This is the Wealthy Affiliate programs website builder tool and it makes it super easy to create your own websites.

I knew nothing about building websites but even I was able to get mine up and running in no time at all.

You simply choose a name for your website, choose a theme and then add content.

There’s no coding or technical experience required.

The Wealthy Affiliate Article Writing Tool – Well this is a helpful little tool to help you write your content.

You write your articles in here and it helps to make sure that you’re not over or under using your keywords.

Plus it saves all your articles in one place so they’re easy to keep track of.

The Keyword Finder – So this is what you’ll be using to find your keywords. Basically you enter in you main keyword for example “Gout” and it will spit out a bunch of related keywords that you can then write content for and make money from.

Here’s an example search I did..

The Live Classes – Another thing that I enjoy and find helpful are the live classes that happen every week from expert trainers.

Tomorrows live training class is all about how site speed effects SEO. It already has 765 members registered to watch it!

There’s a new topic every week and the class lasts around an hour.

You get to ask questions at the end.

In the members are there are a ton of recordings of past classes to get your started.

Every time I attend a class I learn new stuff that I feel will help grow my online business.

It’s awesome that you get to learn live from real marketing geniuses and ask them questions.

Ready Researched Keywords and Niches – Personally I preferred to find my own niches and keywords but as a premium member you get access to ready made keyword lists.

These are lists of keywords that get searched a lot in Google but have low competition so it won’t be difficult to rank, get traffic and make money.

More advanced training – As well as the main system which I explained above, as you progress as an internet marketer you’ll find there is more advanced training in the Wealthy Affiliate members area to help you progress.

You’ll learn about;

  • Social media.
  • PPC (pay per click)
  • eCommerce
  • Running your own business
  • And tons of other stuff on making money online.

So I think that pretty much covers what the Wealthy Affiliate program is all about.

In my opinion it gives you everything you need to succeed as an affiliate marketer and make money.

Now let’s move onto the Wealthy Affiliate Pros and Cons..

Let’s start with the Cons..

You need premium to get the real info – I’ve seen a few people online asking if they can make money by just becoming a free member and not upgrading to premium.

I was a complete newbie when I first signed up so the free information on their site was helpful to me.

But you’re going to need to create a premium account if you want to learn the good stuff.

It only costs $19 for the first month so it’s very affordable and I think they could charge a lot more.

It can be overwhelming at first – There’s so much information in the members area that I was a little overwhelmed at first as I tried to take everything in.

My advice is to take your time.

Don’t rush. Just go through it step by step in your own time.

If you rush then you may feel overwhelmed and just say “nah, this isn’t for me.”

Whatever you do, don’t do that..

You’ll need to pay extra for your own domain name – O.K I’m doing my best but I’m struggling to find cons for the Wealthy Affiliate program.

You can create a free website with their SiteRubix website maker but the URL will be something like http://yoursite.siterubix.com/ so if you want your own URL such as http://yoursite.com/ you will need to buy your own domain name for around $10 per year.

I recommend getting your own domain name.

So now let’s move onto the Pros..

It has been around for a long time – The Wealthy Affiliate has been around since 2007 I think and some of the people that were there in 2007 are still around today!

People wouldn’t stick around that long if the program was rubbish or a scam.

The free account – I like that you can create a free account first so you can see what it’s all about before you decide to upgrade to premium.

I think Kyle and Carson (the owners of W.A) as so proud of their program that they’re willing to let you get a taster for free.

You should definitely checkout the forum and see the success section as it’s motivating to see people having success.

Broken down step by step – Even though there’s a lot of information to get through it’s all broken down step by step into actionable steps.

For every section there are check marks for you to tick off.

These are tasks for you to complete.

When you’ve completed a task and ticked them all off you move onto the next chapter.

So it’s all broken down step by step so even if you’re completely new to internet marketing like I was you’ll find it easy to get through.

This also means that you can learn at your own pace. You’re not rushed at all.

Videos and text – There’s lots of videos showing you how to do stuff which I find very helpful.

The community – I think the community inside the Wealthy Affiliate members area is amazing.

You’re surrounded by people learning the same stuff as you and everyone is so helpful.

You get to chat and learn from experts and ask them questions.

You can get advice about your website or anything and they will help within minutes.

The community is one of the main reasons I’m still a member.

Plus I learn new stuff from people in the members are all the time in the chat.

It’s a great way to stay on top of the latest happenings in the internet marketing world and learn new systems and techniques.

Even if they took all the training material away and just left the chat area I would still want to be a member for this alone.

No hidden costs – Apart from needing to buy a domain name which is pretty cheap you won’t need to buy anything else as a Wealthy Affiliate member.

Everything you need to make money is in the members area.

All the tools and information is there for you.

Plus they’re always adding new stuff to the members area and making the Wealthy Affiliate program better.

The weekly videos – I mentioned this before but one thing I love is their commitment to helping you succeed.

Not only do they have the best training material already but they’re always adding new stuff and the live weekly training is excellent.

It’s just fun to learn something new every week and you get to ask questions at the end.

Anyone can do it – I was broke and knew absolutely nothing about internet marketing or making money online and I worked full time.

I only had a couple of hours every day to work on this stuff and in less than a year I went from broke to making almost $700/day.

So if I can do it then so can you.

Even if you only have an hour or 2 per day to spare you can do it.

And the cool thing is that when you start to make money you will then be able to become your own boss and then you can dedicate more time to this online stuff and everything will snowball from there.

IT WORKS! The best thing I can say about the Wealthy Affiliate program is that it works if you follow the system.

All I did was go through the training material and follow the tasks that they gave me and I started seeing success.

Then I just repeated what I learned again and again and now I’m making more money that I ever thought possible.

So if you are willing to put in some effort and dedicate yourself to the system then you will see results too.

It won’t happen overnight and there may be times when you wonder if it’s going to work but before you know it you’ll wake up one day and see that you’re site is at the top of Google getting traffic and making sales and then you’ll be like “OMG, it really does work!”

And trust me it’s an amazing feeling when you start seeing sales come in and knowing that your website is making money for you while you sleep!

The Wealthy Affiliate FAQs

So below I’m going to try my best to answer some of the questions I’ve seen asked about the W.A and also answer some of the questions I think people may have.

Who is it for? It’s pretty much for anyone who wants to learn how to make money online.

It doesn’t matter if you’re young or old, what you look like, where you come from or any of that stuff.

Your background doesn’t matter.

If you want to learn how to make money online then the Wealthy Affiliate is for you.

Do I need to become a premium member to succeed? Although you will learn a lot with the free basic membership the real meat of the information is in the premium area.

It only costs $19 for your first month so it’s very cheap compared to what you get.

I’m a complete beginner. Will it work for me? I actually think it may be beneficial if you are a complete beginner because you get to learn from scratch.

How long will it take to see results? That’s really difficult to say.

It depends on how much time and effort you put into it.

One thing I know for sure though is if you follow the system and apply what you learn then you will get results.

The sky really is the limit on how much money you can make too. The affiliate marketing industry is worth something like 8 billion per year so there’s countless niches and opportunities for us all to make money.

I work full time so I don’t have a lot of time to work on my online business. Can I still make money? If you can spare an hour or 2 per day at a minimum then you can do this.

You just need to be consistent and stick with it.

English isn’t my first language. Does that matter? I think as long as you can understand English then you should be able to get through the program fine.

Are there any other costs? None, apart from you may want to buy your own domain name which only costs about $10 or something.

How exactly do I make money? It’s called affiliate marketing. You can actually promote other people’s products and make money.

Almost everything sold online from digital ebooks to fishing rods have an affiliate program.

On your website you will post what’s called an affiliate link that links to the product you are recommending. When someone buys that product after clicking your link you will receive a commission anywhere from 5% to 75%.

The cool thing about this is that you don’t need to have your own product as you can just promote other people’s.

One way to find products that you can promote as an affiliate is to search “keyword + affiliate” into Google.

For example if your website is about gout you would type “gout + affiliate” and then you will find products that you can promote and make money from as an affiliate.

Does the Wealthy Affiliate program really work? Hell yeah!

It’s all about visitors and conversions. Getting visitors to your website and making sales.

What you learn in the Wealthy Affiliate program is something that you can use for years to come.

I never went to college or university but thanks to the Wealthy Affiliate program I’m making a lot more money now than some of my friends combined.

So think of it as an education that will benefit you for the rest of your life and won’t cost an arm and a leg like going to college would!

If you have any other questions then feel free to leave a comment below and I’ll reply asap.

How To Get The Best Results From With Wealthy Affiliate Program..

First of all I recommend going through the training program and following the tasks that they have set out for you.

That’s the best way to learn but here’s a few tips I have for you..

1:) When it comes to writing your articles make sure that they are over 1,000 words each.

I’ve found that articles over 1,000 words seem to rank better in Google.

2:) Get yourself a Noisli.com account.

It basically plays background noise through your headphones. I find that it really helps block out other thoughts.

When I try to write an article without Noisli I find my mind wanders but when I listen to it I can write much better.

I set a timer to write for 45 minutes straight and then take a 15 minute break.

In fact I’m listening to it right now as I write this. 🙂

There’s something about white noise that just helps you focus.

3:) The more keywords you write articles for the more traffic you will get.

Don’t just write 5 articles and expect to make lots of money. Go after as many keywords as you can for a better chance of success.

4:) Choosing the right niche is so important. Here’s my rule for choosing a niche.. {Health, Wealth and desperation or passion}.

Sure you can make a lot of money outside of these fields but there’s billions being spent in these markets.

  • People will spend money to improve their health when it is failing them.
  • People will spend money to make money. I spent money on the Wealthy Affiliate to learn how to make money!
  • People will spend money out of desperation. If someone has genital warts they will spend money to solve that problem out of desperation!
  • People will spend money on the hobbies they are passionate about.

Here’s some niche ideas for you that I personally came up with! I hope you find them helpful..

O.K that’s your lot. Gotta keep some for myself. 🙂

But you get the idea.

Every one of the niches above has the potential to make you a LOT of money.

Hundreds or even thousands of $$$ per day!

And even if you know nothing about your niche that doesn’t matter because you can just Google other peoples sites and learn about your niche that way!

5.) Don’t give up. I wrote my first 50 articles and it was a while before I started ranking at the top of Google. It takes time.

So stick with it and don’t give up because before you know it you’ll be ranking and banking too!

6.) My last bit of advice is to write down your goals and read them 3 times every day.

Don’t share these goals or talk about them with anyone.

For example some goals might be..

  • Make $200 per day.
  • Work from home.
  • Buy new Mercedes.
  • Pay off debts.
  • Buy Versace suit.
  • Pay off mortgage.

So write down your goals and desires in order of importance.

Read them to yourself morning, noon and night and and think about them as often as possible.

They’ll be the reasons that you give the Wealthy Affiliate program your best effort.

This is what I did and I was quite amazed at how fast I started ticking things off and now I have a new list!

So follow these tips and it wont be long until you’re making money too, like these Wealthy Affiliate members..

So Should You Join The Wealthy Affiliate Program?

If you’re willing to give it a proper go then I guarantee that you’ll be amazed at how much you learn and how fast you start to see results with the Wealthy Affiliate program.

I went from broke to making over $20,000 per month and my income is growing.

I have no debts.

I can buy the things I like and go wherever I want to go.

And if I feel like taking a day off then that’s fine because my websites will keep on making money for me.

So if it’s your goal to start making money from the comfort of your own home and to start living the life you dream about then join the Wealthy Affiliate and start taking action.

It’s an amazing feeling when your debts and bills are all paid and you have so much extra money that you can start buying the stuff you want and spend your time doing what you really want to do.

And there’s really no limit to how much money you can make online.

So join the Wealthy Affiliate program and I’ll see you on the inside.

Good luck and if you have any questions then feel free to ask below!
