You Already Know About Wealthy Affiliate

Wealthy Affiliate has existed since 2005 so it wouldn't be a shock to me if you have already heard of the program.  But you may be wondering does it work?  I have been a premium member since January 2009 and I can guarantee that if it didn't work, I wouldn't be still paying for it.

But it requires dedicating yourself to making it work.  When I first started, I really didn't take advantage of the training modules and even the ones I did, I really didn't follow the advice given.   You can't succeed that way in any program that you try.​

But about a year ago, I decided to really put forth a full effort in making this work and I've come a long way.  I am making sales now and the websites that I have are all gaining in the search engines as well as increased traffic.

​You Have Never Heard of Wealthy Affiliate Before...

Wealthy Affiliate is a program set up by two entrepreneurs (see below) where they instruct you on how to create an online business.  There are many training modules available with three paths that you could follow.  These paths are described below (click on the + sign):

Promote a Niche Market

Promote Wealthy Affiliate

Promote Services to Local Businesses

The founding members of Wealthy Affiliate Kyle and Carson, are dedicated to helping its members succeed with setting up an online business.  I know their motivations are true because I have been working with them for several years now.​  They have proven that they want to help through their actions.

How I Will Help You

Now that you can see that Wealthy Affiliate is the real deal and that it works, you probably want to know how I can help you.  Since I have been doing this for a while, I have learned much about creating websites and marketing them.  There isn't too much that I haven't stumbled across in the course of my IM career.  My knowledge is there for you to help when needed.  Specifically, I monitor all of the people that I refer and check in with them on a frequent basis.

This mean if I see something that you are doing that may need improvement, I will ask if you want my help and offer up solutions to get you where you need to be.  ​I don't know if other members do this with their referrals but that is not my concern.  My concern is to make sure you have everything you need to be successful.

Next Steps...

There is nothing to lose by signing up for Wealthy Affiliate.  It is free and they don't ask you for a credit card.  Plus, they won't pressure you to upgrade and you can stay a free (starter) member for as long as you wish, even if that means forever.  When you do sign up, be sure to look up my profile which is @techhound


Top 5 Tips For Working With Affiliate Managers

by Success Starts Here! on April 4, 2014

I have been working with affiliate marketing for some time now and during that time I have talked to several affiliate managers.  On the whole they are really nice people.  When you first start out, you may get overwhelmed about the idea that you have to talk to an affiliate manager.  It's not a bad experience and these 5 tips can help you get over that fear.

Tip #1

They want to know that you have their best interests at heart.  There are plenty of people that use affiliate marketing as a way to spam people.  Affiliate marketing makes it easy for spammers but this causes problems for the affiliate companies.  Usually a manager wants to talk to you to find out what your promotional methods are going to be and that you won't be one of the many spammers.

Tip #2

Affiliate managers want your business.  The more legitimate affiliates they have the more sales they will get.  This is the number one reason why they are easy to talk to.  They want you to succeed.  They just want to make sure you are on the level.

Tip #3

An affiliate manager has to make money to justify the costs of the affiliate program.  There are going to be occasions when you get cancelled from a program.  This is usually due to low sales volume or lack of activity.  In many cases, contacting the affiliate manager can get you reinstated.  But you'll want to really start promoting in order to get sales.

Tip #4

Don't be afraid to hit up the affiliate manager for advice.  Affiliate managers know their business and the products that they sell.  As I already mentioned, they want you to succeed.  Ask them which campaigns used by other affiliates have worked the best.  If you need some kind of custom banner or something like that, they will often be happy to help.

Tip #5

Don't sign up unless you are going to promote.  Services like Commission Junction, Linkshare, and Share-a-Sale, have multiple affiliate programs.  People often sign up for pages of affiliate programs at a time and then wonder why they start getting deactivated.  It's usually due to inactivity on your part.  If you are not planning on promoting something, don't sign up for it.

A Bonus Tip...

One of the quickest ways of getting dropped by an affiliate manager is to break their rules or terms of service.  An affiliate manager needs to make sure that the company doesn't get in trouble.  That is why they have those rules in place.  Make sure you read over and understand the terms of service.  Ask questions if you don't.

Affiliate Managers are Approachable

If you follow the rules and you work with your affiliate manager, you will see that they are easy to get along with.  Remember, you are the one making them money for them, not the other way around.  So there is no reason to be afraid to contact them and ask them for help.  It's in their best interest to see you succeed.​
