  1. Hello Minah,

    In my eyes, Wealthy Affilaite is truly an amazing place to learn affiliate marketting from ground up. I am absolutely blown away by the amount of content, knowdledge, tools and support which WA has to offer. The lessons which You can find on this platform are very informative, helpful and do phenomenal job of explaining each aspect in great clarity and detail. This is in my opinion best source of information to learn this kind of online business. Hoewever, the thing which stood out for me the most was the crazy amount of support from WA community, which is always there to help You, guide You at any give moment, it’s simply outstanding! I’ve never seen anything like it in my life. Keep up the great work Minah! 

  2. This is a great way to earn income online and there are no ifs or buts, just clean and simple and earnings are payed to your PayPal account.

    What I appreciate most is being paid for training because it means I’m able to help a lot of people step by step, and the comments on others’ website means I can help them build content on their site and get paid for it.

    What a novel idea to spread the word about how to earn WITHIN Wealthy Affiliate listing all possibilities!

    Thank you for reminding us of the great opportunities we have on this amazing affiliate marketing program.


  3. I think Wealthy Affiliate is a great place to start when you’re interested in learning how to live from the internet. I have a website that recommends the WA program because these commissions are really interesting like you mentioned yourself.

    Now and then I also write comments, have not reached the qualified status yet though.

    $0.50 per comment is not really a lot but for starters it can help finance the monthly fee. How is that, do I have to refresh my qualification every month and why do you have $1 credit on the pic although you have written 39 comments already?

    • Hi Stefan!
      Nice to see a fellow member here.
      About your question, it took me a while, to understand it first– Why I only got a dollar, while I have 39 credits.
      Well, the way I understand it, you / the commenter, have to maintain 50/50 status, and everytime you comment you’ll get 1 credit for the first comment then $0.50 for the second one.
      You just have to remember to maintain the 50/50 stat.

      Hope it clears out things. That’s the way I see and understand it.

      Wishing you success,

  4. Hi, Minah. That’s a good write-up on Wealthy Affiliate. I think if you work hard at what you describe, you will be amazed at how much money you can earn as an affiliate for WA. It will be way more than a few bucks! Like you, I am working my way through the Bootcamp, and the more I learn, the better I get and the more traffic I get. Affiliate marketing is a long-term business and earnings are limitless. Everyone is different, and everyone’s ROI will be different. Keep up the excellent work. Paul.

  5. Hi Minah,

    I’ve looked at various ways of making money online, but most of them don’t really work or are a scam. I’ve heard of Wealthy Affiliate, but am not sure whether or not I should join and try it out. Is it really possible to make money with Wealthy Affiliate and how much effort would you need to spend to make it worthwhile? Note that I work full time as well, so I can only spend an hour or so a day on something like this.

    I’d be really interested to see your opinion on this as to whether or not it’s worth trying out.



  6. hello minah,  good you are sharing your thoughts with us.  I quite agree,  100% with you that without going out of the WA  roof,  you can earn some cool income and feel good.  

    I must say it all depends on how serious and consistent you are it attending to matter.  Seriously,  a lazy person cannot make anyrhong from wealthy affiliate. 

  7. Hi Minah,

    I was online looking for ways to make money online and found your website.  I didn’t know that the Wealthy Affiliate platform had so many money-making advantages. I see that if someone shares their knowledge with the rest of the members by creating a training, they can earn some money by doing so!  That is awesome.  

    But what about Site Comment? How does that work?  Who are we supposed to comment on and what are the specific criteria to maintain to be a certified commenter and earn revenue?

    It all sounds very interesting no matter what, and I see that there is a Black Friday Sale coming up.  I will definitely check it out!

    Thanks for the heads up!

  8. Hello and thank you for sharing this article. I am a part of Wealthy Affiliate for 6 months already. I have nothing but the words of gratitude and happines. Wealthy Affiliate provides one of the best affiliate programs on the market. 

    Usually, anyone interested in becoming an online entrepreneur that bumps into Wealthy Affiliate will stay and become a member. And not just any member, premium one. Besides the training and amazing affiliate program, you are also able to become a Jaaxy Affiliate as well as Site Rubix affiliate. These are all amazing.

    I can really recommend anyone that has the same interestes to join Wealthy Affiliate and see what this amazing platform is all about.

    Best regards,


    • Thanks for stopping by Strahinja.

      I am enjoying and really satisfied with my membership at Wealthy Affiliate. It indeed taught me a lot of things regarding online business and building a website. Plus the fact that you have the opportunity to earn bucks while learning. 

      And yes, you are definitely right, if someone bumps into WA, that person stays without a doubt.

      Thanks again, and wishing you success.


  9. I’m definitely going to grab the “black Friday deal” if I’m still not a premium WA member yet.

    Perhaps I’ll get it to extend my yearly membership. Anyways minah, thanks for the awesome review about wealthy affiliate.

    It’s definitely a go-to place for anybody who wants to learn about internet marketing / affiliate marketing.


  10. Hi Minah,
    Among all the options that you share I think sitecomment 2.0 is an easiest option for me. I feel like that is the simple way for me to make few bucks as a newbie. It would be more better if I make training and jaxxy referral but I need to gain more knowledge about it before helping others. Anyway, thank you for explaining all these points in nice, short and clear words. Keep up the good work. All the best

    • Hi Image,
      Yes it is! SiteComments is easy to do and if your are consistent, it can cover your monthly fee for WA.
      But, you have to a Certified Commenter before you even qualified for the cash credits. And you have to make sure that you maintain 50/50 comments.
      Anyway good luck!

  11. Hi Mina.
    If I wasn’t a member of Wealthy Affiliate already I’d be interested in joining through your link here today.
    Informative post here.
    How long have you been a member at WA? Look me up, my username is Jim-bo.
    Another question, what’s your favourite social media in terms of driving traffic?

    • Hi Jimbo,
      Really? that is good to hear! It’s like I did a goodd job on representing Wealthy Affiliate to others.
      For my social media, I focus on Pinterest lately.

      Thanks and wishing you success,

  12. Thanks for this information, I’m still fairly new to wealthy affiliate so its good to find out about these other options. I also didn’t know about the black Friday sale so that’s good to know

  13. I love WA! I have learned so much because of the training provided through the platform and I honestly don’t think I’d have figured this out by using any other training. Part of the reason I stick with WA is because it really is step-by-step and there are always members there that are willing to help if you ever have any questions. People there want you to succeed, unlike some bloggers online that seem to want to discourage you from blogging or are unwilling to help.

    Even though I started over with an entirely new site, I have the motivation I need to keep going and learning because of the amazing community and training available at Wealthy Affiliate.

  14. I have read alot of blogs about WA but this is the first one that talks about its affiliate program. They way you have broken it down into such simple steps, its a wonder why more people haven’t written about it.

    I think I will do the same…I need the money 🙂

    • Hi Tarun,
      Yeah, so far I like what I am getting from Wealthy Affiliate. The training helps me lot specially when writing a quality content.
      We all need money, but this thing takes a lot of time for you to see the result.
      Patience and consistence is the key.

      Wishing you success,

  15. Hi Mina,

    Just dropping by to say hi to a fellow wealthy affiliate member. I am just one of the many who have seen success in the online world thanks to Wealthy Affiliate. The community is awesome and indeed there are plenty of ways to make money online. They have many options but the most profitable one is undoubtedly to promote the WA community and refer other aspiring people who would love to make money online.

  16. Hello Mina! I am fairly new to Wealthy Affiliate and I would completely agree with all the information that you have here. There is so much information and training available and the support from the other members is incredible! Definitely recommend this place to people as an amazing place to learn and grow. Thank you for this information!

  17. Hello Mina,

    That was an excellent and true picture of WA. WA is truly the place to make money online and build a solid online business. I am a member myself and I got to say WA is awesome. The training they have is excellent, and the community are full of lovely and successful entrepreneur.

    Everyone is rooting for you to succeed and if you are struggling with your business, people are willing to give you a hand and support you. For me if you are a beginner I will surely encourage you to give WA free starter account. You will love it.

  18. Thank you, Mina, for this article. However, consider me a skeptic.

    You say that I can make money using Wealthy Affiliate, but, HOW can I make money. I mean you mention how to create trainings and recurring income, but how do I get customers?

    How is this affiliate program different from independent marketing stuff. At least those have trainings to show you how to sell and get customers. I wouldn’t want to join anything where I’m left out in limbo.

    • Hi Lane,
      Interesting question.
      If you have read my article, I said that you/somebody, being a member of Wealthy Affiliate has the ability to earn money within it.
      It’s not a lot, but if you’re consistent it might cover your monthly membership payment.

      Actually, on the process, you’re not going to deal with a “customer”.
      With all the effort that you do in Wealthy Affiliate, like for example, create a training, using the site comments, you are
      going to be given a credits, that can turn into cash.
      And another thing is by promoting Jaaxy and Wealthy Affiliate itself.

      The training are all provided.

      Hope this clarifies things.

  19. When I joined Wealthy Affiliate I was skeptical. I started as a Free member and tried out their tools and went through the beginner training. I still wondered if it was worth becoming a Premium to host my websites. Sure I could host up to 50 websites for that flat rate but I only had 2 websites at that time and didn’t think I wanted to pay so much if I was only going to host 2 websites. So I shopped around to see if I could get a better deal. I tried two of the big boys, Wix and GoDaddy as their prices were advertised so much lower than Wealthy Affiliate. Only a few bucks per website, Wow! I tried out Wix, built a website and soon found that if I wanted to add some features I had to pay extra, then some extra for email accounts, then extra for extra data room, it was one up sale after another. Before I knew it the cost for my one website was near that of the cost for 50 websites at Wealthy Affiliate. Then I tried GoDaddy and it was the same story, lots of up sales and both Wix or GoDaddy did not have anything near the Affiliate training, Keyword Search tools, live chat, weekly webinars, access to the owners, and the unparalleled affiliate program you describe in this post. All I can say to those reading is if you haven’t already tried Wealthy Affiliate, take a few minutes to follow Mina’s link to the platform, sign for Free with no credit information and see for yourself. If it is not for you walk away, no risk of your credit card getting charged because you never gave any of that info.

    • Hi Paul,
      Thank you so much for sharing your experience.
      I did try Wix too. I’m kind of visual person, so I was attracted on the website “looks”, then I found out later that there will be additional
      cost if you want to get the best out of your site.
      But with Wealthy Affiliate, you all those extra functions plus, training, weekly webinars, we have our own keyword research tool, and last but not the least, we have access to the owners.

      And as I get to know WA, I’m happy that I made the right decision.
      Thanks again, Paul.
