Whenever I make a recommendation to join a program that costs money, my readers are naturally skeptical and you should be! There are a lot of scams running rampant out there and if you aren’t skeptical, you could lose hundreds or even thousands of dollars.

Ever since my post on Monday regarding my trip to Vegas and my experiences as an Internet Marketer, my inbox has been flooded with questions about Wealthy Affiliate. I decided to compile a list of the top five most frequently asked questions and answer them directly on the blog.

Read through them all and if you still have questions, there are instructions on how to email me at the bottom.

#1 – I am a complete beginner to Internet Marketing, and don’t have any experience – can I still succeed with Wealthy Affiliate?


Everyone has to start somewhere right? Wealthy Affiliate can be the starting point for you.

Most of the training, resources, and tools at Wealthy Affiliate are targeted to complete beginners. One of the main focal points of Wealthy Affiliate is the 8-Week Action Plan which is a complete step-by-step walk-through that takes absolute beginners like yourself and sets them on a path to making money as an Internet Marketer.

And when you have questions, you can ask them in the private forums. Every member of Wealthy Affiliate is given an account on the forums and I have NEVER seen a single question go unanswered. The members at Wealthy Affiliate are among the most helpful people I’ve ever come across online.

If all else fails, you can go to Kyle and Carson, the owners of Wealthy Affiliate, and ask them for help directly. They have both helped me personally in the past and worked with me until every question I had was answered. Again, I’ve never seen this type of support anywhere else on the web.

Remember, when you join Wealthy Affiliate, you join a community. This isn’t a typical training program. You’re given quality training and access to tons of support. Most other websites out there will sell you an eBook and leave you to figure everything else out on your own. Wealthy Affiliate is not like that. They are invested in your success and will do everything they can to help you succeed.

#2 – What exactly does an Internet Marketer do?

Here is internet marketing broken down to the basics: there are thousands of companies online that will pay you commissions to drive visitors to their websites that sell their products or services. You make money every time one of the visitors you referred makes a purchase. Basically, you help online customers find the products their looking for and you get paid to do so. Again, you don’t need to know how to do this beforehand. Wealthy Affiliate will train you.

#3 – Why does it cost $39 a month to join? Are there any hidden fees?

First, there are NO hidden fees. You pay $39 per month and you have complete access to everything at Wealthy Affiliate.

Second, when you join Wealthy Affiliate, you’re paying for an education. If you wanted to learn how to become a doctor, you would pay for medical school, right? You can’t just walk into a hospital and start performing surgery. Internet Marketing is no different. You can’t just sit at a computer and get paid. You need an education first and Wealthy Affiliate will teach you everything you need to know.

#4 – How quickly can I make money? How much money can I make?

This question is near impossible for me to answer. This all depends on YOU.

I can tell you that I have seen people join Wealthy Affiliate and started making money on the same day. I have also seen people take a few weeks before their first dollar comes in. In any case, if you follow the training really work at it, you can become a successful Internet Marketer. The training is there; YOU need to put it to good use.

#5 – I don’t know how to make a website and I don’t have anything to sell. Can I still make money?


How can I make a website? This is the biggest fear most Internet Marketing beginners have. If this is what’s holding you back from joining, well, knock it off! For starters, included in your Wealthy Affiliate membership is a tool called Site Rubix. Site Rubix builds websites for you. If you know how to use Microsoft Word or even create an email, you can build a website with Site Rubix. All you need to do is pick out a layout and fill in the content. It’s seriously that easy. Plus, there are a lot of other ways to make money as an Internet Marketer without running your own website.

I have nothing to sell. Me neither and I’m a full-time Internet Marketer. As an internet marketer, you help sell other people’s products. You send traffic to THEIR websites and get paid when the people you sent make a purchase. You don’t have to sell something of your own. You don’t have to worry about shipping products or accepting returns. And you most certainly do not have to do any type of customer support.

    I was a member for perhaps four – five months. It is a place where you get a weekly “training” module. You will need to commit to at least 2 months to get through the initial course.

    They also say to look for the “Star” forums… The place is so over run with comments and threads that you may never find one. I never did. I would say that you could sign up for 2 months, see the program, learn what they have to offer, and then leave. They have some niche ideas, but I think you can do better elsewhere.

    The problem with most people wanting to get into IM is they expect it to be free and quick. You cannot get there without someone taking you by the hand (unless you are one of the few who just sees a clear path to a niche). The folks that will take you by the hand must make a living, so you are going to pay something. Try opening a brick and mortar business for $80. You can’t even register an LLC for that.

    $US39.00 per month : how many months would I have to pay that amount for or is it a single payment?
