Affiliate Marketing Secrets – How to Find Them?

In this article, I will reveal affiliate marketing secrets and where to find them.

Are there any affiliate marketing secrets?

I wouldn’t say that there are any secrets. But there must be a reason why so many fail when they try affiliate marketing or try to succeed online. Many understand the concept of affiliate marketing, but still, they are not so successful when they face the reality.

It might have to do with the training they got. I have a Facebook account and every day there appear so-called affiliate gurus, mostly from Singapore and they want to show you how to make money through affiliate marketing, for FREE! True, the introduction is free, but if you really want to know the real “secret” you have to sign up for the next webinar the PAID one and it is not cheap.

This guy is from Singapore. His name is Ewen Chia and I was invited to one of his seminars in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on how to get rich through affiliate marketing. The first hour he used to introduce himself and told everyone how successful he was. He even showed a picture of himself shaking hands with Donald Trump. Very impressive! He told us that he struggled for many years before he realized the formula for success. Now he is a dollar millionaire.

But coming to the point, at the end of the seminar he invited the audience for a two days seminar, where he would teach us how to make money through affiliate marketing especially with Clickbank.

This FREE introduction seminar didn’t teach us anything on how to make money even if you got the impression from the invitation. Mostly it was about how great Ewen Chiah was. But now it was time for the next invitation the PAID one.

I did a rough calculation on how much Ewen Chiah would make for this 2 days seminar. It was close to $20.000 for 2 days!!!! Of course minus the expenses for setting up the seminar, but still!

One thing that puzzles me, if he is so successful in affiliate marketing which makes him millions per year, why on earth trouble himself with these seminars? See my review of Ewen Chia.

One reason could be that he is not so successful anymore and need to get in money from other sources, like seminars. Another reason could be, and I read this on a review about him, that what he teaches is outdated. It worked maybe 5 to 10 years ago. But the internet changes all the time. If this the case, then people pay for things that is already old. What is that called? You name it!

But are there any “secrets” on how to do affiliate marketing?

I wouldn’t call it secrets. It has been there all the time, at least since 2005. The only thing is that people, in general, don’t know about it. Not even I knew about until 1 1/2 year ago and I tell you, I have wasted so much time on finding the “secret” to be successful online.

What is the “secret”?

As I said: It is not a secret, but if you really want to know, the name of the “secret” is Wealthy Affiliate University. Yes, this platform for affiliate marketing training has been here since 2005. This was an eye-opener for me when I first came in contact with them. It was like coming home at last.

I am really happy to share this information with you because if you really want to be successful and are willing to work hard for it, you are in the right place and you WILL succeed.

What is Wealthy Affiliate?

As I said it was founded in 2005 by these Canadian guys

It is a training platform that teaches you to step by step to be successful. Isn’t that wonderful, you can start from scratch, without any experience, and work yourself to the top. That is what many who go online for making money are dreaming about. Teach me how to do it. But, they need help and Wealthy Affiliate is the platform that will give them this help. What would you say if I told you after only one month in Wealthy Affiliate you would accomplish the following:

  • You have your very own niche website on your own domain
  • You have optimized your website for SEO
  • You understand the process of creating content
  • You have created several pages of content that are starting to get ranked
  • Your foundation for a long term and successful business is in place
  • You KNOW more than 99% of your competition

All this after 1 month of training!!! – Frankly, I learned more than wasting many years struggling to make a living online. I really wish that I found Wealthy Affiliate a long time before. It would save me a lot of time and I could start earning much earlier.

How does Wealthy Affiliate work?

It is very simple and logical training. You can compare it to a ladder which will take you to the roof of a high building. If you want to reach the roof you have to take it to step by step on the ladder. In a similar way, Wealthy Affiliate will take you to the “roof” but you must take it to step by step. But when you reach the roof you can enjoy the view and have the measure or feeling of freedom.

In a similar way, Wealthy Affiliate WILL take you to the top and when you are there you can enjoy the freedom of being economically independent. I think anyone would like that kind of freedom.

Additionally, Wealthy Affiliate is a very honest platform in contrast to all the so-called “Gurus” online who promise to help you but normally only looking for how deep they can dig into your wallet.

That is why Wealthy Affiliate never asks for your credit card information when you sign up with them.

It is free to sign up and for 7 days you will have access to everything that an upgraded or premium member has.

Isn’t that fair enough? It will give you time to evaluate what Wealthy Affiliate is about. Tip: Sign up when you know that you will have 7 days of free time. That will help you to get a clearer picture if this program is something for you.

If you feel that these 7 days were not enough, Wealthy Affiliate give you 1 month with a 61% discount. This will give you further time to test and evaluate the program. The price for full or premium membership for one month and 7 days? $19.

What will you get for this $19?

If you remember how much I learned after 1 month. I repeat it here:

  • You have your very own niche website on your own domain
  • You have optimized your website for SEO
  • You understand the process of creating content
  • You have created several pages of content that are starting to get ranked
  • Your foundation for a long term and successful business is in place
  • You KNOW more than 99% of your competition

All this for $19. You can just imagine if you continue as a premium member, how much you will know after an additional month or after three months, and so on. Remember the ladder? it will take you to the “roof”, the top.

This is how Wealthy Affiliate works.

Is it really worth it?

Maybe you already figured out that as a premium member, the fee is $49 per month. What will you get for this $49?

The roof. Wealthy Affiliate is not a get-rich overnight scheme. It is a ladder to the top. So if you are a person who is ready to work yourself to the top with all help you get from Wealthy Affiliate, you are in the right place. It is not for persons who jump from one opportunity to another opportunity in a never-ending circle. Wealthy Affiliate is for persons who decide that they want to succeed, whatever the cost. It is worth it!

What to do next?

If you believe what I wrote above, I strongly recommend that you sign up for the 7 days free trial. What can you lose? During these 7 days, you will get your own web page with your own domain name (which you can keep even if you don’t upgrade and you will get access to 10 training sessions that probably will be an eye-opener for you when it comes to the internet marketing.

Below is a sample of the first 10 lessons you will get as a free member

  1. I stumbled across Wealthy Affiliate a little over a year ago when I was looking for an hourly gig.  I will agree with you on your first point.  It felt like coming home.  It felt like a huge community (many with years of experience) reaching out to welcome me and offer support.  Their training was perfect for a newbie like me, who had never built a website and had never heard of affiliate marketing!  

    As you say, they were honest from the start, honest about how much work is involved, how long it might take to begin to be successful.  There are no “hidden costs”…it’s all out there, right upfront.  And the free trial is free.  No credit card required.  During this time, I immersed myself in the training, started to write and set up my website.  It’s time enough to find out if this is something you want to do. If not, no harm, no foul.  There is nothing to cancel since you never gave them a credit card in the first place.  

    I highly recommend this platform!

  2. I truly appreciate this special post, I call it special because of the way the article on this website is so detailed, if this were to be a book I will love to nominate it as a best seller, whenever I hear the name wealthy affiliate it’s makes me just have a form of excitement within me, wealthy affiliate has truly transformed my mindset, the knowledge and experience I now have and enjoy through this platform is second to none, not even to talk about the financial benefits that comes with it.

    thank you wealthy affiliate for making life easy for me.
