How to be an affiliate marketer?

Many people are wondering: How to be an affiliate marketer online?

The reasons are probably that they are attracted by the lifestyle that many affiliate marketers live or maybe they just want to work from the comfort of their home.

It can be quite confusing, because if you do a Google search you will find an endless information about this subject. A lot of this information are created by so called “Gurus” with the only intention to get your money into their own pockets. EXAMPLE!


Is there any legit platform for learning affiliate marketing?

Yes there is. Let me present to you Wealthy Affiliate.

Wealthy Affiliate is a well reputed platform that has helped thousands of people to be a successful affiliate marketer.

It was founded 2005 so it has a lot of experience, especially in helping people from scratch. So this platform for learning affiliate marketing is for all people regardless their background, ages and similar things.

How does the training works?

It works in a way that anyone can understand. Since the training starts from scratch and step by step by explaining how things functions in the affiliate world even a newbie can follow along. On the picture below you can have a glanced on the first 10 lessons.

These 10 lessons are a part of 5 modules. These lessons are the first module. The other modules are as follows:

Module 2: Building Your Own Traffic-Producing Website (10 lessons)

Module 3: Making Money (10 lessons)

Module 4: Mastering Social Engagement (10 lessons)

Module 5: Achieving Maximum Success With You Content (10 lessons)

All these modules will make you an expert in respective area.

When all 50 lessons are finished you will get this. ===>

This is an Online Entrepreneur Certification or a Diploma that you  can  now consider yourself as a qualified affiliate marketer.

Probably you already started to make money before you went through the whole course, you know earning while learning.

The training you get at Wealthy Affiliate is not training that will make you to a medium marketer. It will make you to a super skilled online entrepreneur. Only the sky is the limit.


The web page

In one of the first lessons you will set up your very own web page.

Don’t worry it is not so scary as it might sound. Actually the set up time is less than a minute. The site is from WordPress and it will be hosted on Wealthy Affiliate’s own server SiteRubix.

This web page will be the foundation of your affiliate marketing and at the same time your “real estate” on internet.

This is a high quality web page with a lot of built-in technologies as free SSL, hackers hostile and a speed that beat almost all other sites.

With other words you will have a website built at Wealthy Affiliate that leads to better rankings and more success.

The webinars

In addition to the original training once a week Wealthy Affiliate is holding a webinar that is very helpful.

Sample of webinars


These webinars are held by a qualified expert in affiliate marketing. He joined Wealthy Affiliate already  in 2007 only 2 years after the foundation. It means that he has over 13 years of experience of online affiliate marketing. It is a real joy to attend these webinars since they are designed to make us more skilled in a lot of areas.

They are around 1 hour long followed by an Q&A session.

The webinars are recorded so if someone can’t attend in real time there is always a possibility to see them later. So to this date there are hundreds of recorded webinars. I like this feature because I can choose subjects that I want to know more about.

The Community

One very special feature of Wealthy Affiliate is the Community.


Since Wealthy Affiliate has more than 2 million members, many of them have been at this platform for years and got a lot of experience. Some willingly offer themselves to help out where there is a need.

Let’s say you are stuck somewhere in the training and need some help. I think you agree that to be stuck can be quite frustrating especially if you have devoted some time for your project.

It is here the Community comes into the picture. You open the help tab and choose the area in which you need help, It might be technical support for your website or something about the Wealthy Affiliate platform that you would like to have a clearer picture of or something else. You just write down your concern and wait for the answer.

How long do you need to wait? Will you get help the same day? Since the members of the Community are from all over the world there is always someone who are awake and ready to assist you. So how long do you need to wait? The help will be there within minutes. That means that you will never get stuck. The Community works 24/7.

This is what I call an effective training.

How much does it cost to join Wealthy Affiliate?

This is another good part. Wealthy affiliate has something they call a starter membership and it is free to join. You don’t even need to reveal any credit card information. On top of that you will have a 7 days upgraded or premium membership also for free. That will give you time to explore the platform before you make any decision to upgrade. Fair enough, isn’t it?

If you within the 7 days decide to upgrade you will get 60% discount the first month, that is $19. Thereafter, it is $49 per month.

Is it worth it?

You can ask any of the thousands who already are successful thanks to the training they got from this platform and the fact that it has been around for over 15 years and consists of over 2 million people, that in itself speaks its clear language.

Join now! you have nothing to lose.

  1. Hi Goran, I’m glad I came across your article today. I found it very helpful as a newbie in wealthy affiliate. I am attending lessons and I am hoping that this is a really good platform for me to make money online. Thank you for sharing such an amazing piece of writing with us, I will be visiting your site more often to learn more about how to become an affiliate marketer.

  2. Hi Goran. Thank oyu for very interesting post. Im just started my own blog and Im well aware how much time and work is needed to learn all the topic related to digital marketing, I believe its almost impossible to do it without help, and wealthy affiliate is best place to start. With tons of trainings, active community and webhosting this platform provides all tools you need to start.

  3. I remember the first time I heard about WA. I was trying to make money online. It was painful. I realized that the solution was not on YouTube. I needed a systematic  methodical course and that’s what WA offers. But what I didn’t know was how helpful is the community. I’m still amazed today.

    Another thing I really appreciate: the lessons that the members offers (especially those offered by Jay). Those  classes are
    important because they offer up-to- date information about online marketing, Google Analytics, and the last WordPress updates. I love that platform.
