Getting Started

Now its time for you to make something happen. You’ve done your research and you’re more curious about this thing called Wealthy Affiliate than any other online opportunity you’ve seen so far.



So I want to give you some quick tips on how to get started and what to expect.

First of all you should go have a look at the Wealthy Affiliate website.

Once you’re there, you’ll see that you have 2 options.

Option #1

Sign up for free without giving a credit card or any information other than a username, password and email address.

Option #2

Sign up for the Premium membership for $47 per month but only $19 for the first month.


The reason I tell you to sign up for the free version(Option #1) is in my opinion one of the greatest things about Wealthy Affiliate.

They let you join for free and use the training and build a website all without spending a single penny. 

This is actually true. I know it seems too good to be true but its not. So you get to see what its like on the inside of this great community that I keep going on about.

Once you sign up for a free membership you’ll get access to step by step training on how to build a niche website that will make money from affiliate marketing.


So theres a good overview of what you get with the free membership vs the Premium membership. But you might still be confused as you what exactly Wealthy Affiliate is. If you are I appologize because maybe I haven’t done a good job explaining it yet. I’ll try again.

Wealthy Affiliate will show you exactly how to make a living online from your very own niche website. 


A niche website is a website about a topic that is not extremely popular. Or it could be about a topic that is just one sub section of a larger more popular topic. For example…..

Ice hockey would not be a niche topic, its a pretty popular sport which makes it more of a main stream topic with thousands of websites dedicated to it, meaning lots of competition.

That being said, there are many little niche topics within the Ice Hockey topic like say, goalie mask designs, skating backwards, hockey fights or one specific player. These would all be considered niche topics that you could build an entire website around, they would have very little competition but still generate lots of interest.

Thats what a niche website is going for, little competition.


There are litterally hundreds of ways a niche website can make money. They are all good options and you can learn how to do them all at Wealthy Affiliate but the best and easiest way to start is through affiliate sales.

An affilate sale is when you write about, promote or review an item or product on your website. You set up links on your website and when a person reading it clicks the link, it takes them to a page where they could buy the product from a different website. When they buy the product, the link tracks that sale back to your website and you get a commission.

One of the most common affiliate programs is through Let me give you an example.

Lets say you chose skating backwards as your niche topic. So you write a little about skating backwards and you could talk about the best pair of skates for skating backwards. You could put a picture of the best skates for this and attach a link to that picture.

When the customer clicks that link it takes them directly to sales page for the skates on Once they click the link, your website gets credit for them being there looking at those skates. Then if they end up buying those skates anytime in the next 24 hours, you get a commission.

The even better part is that even if they don’t buy the skates you recommended, but they buy something else within 24hrs, you will get a commission. Since you were the one you sent them to, you get a commission on anything they buy there within the next 24hrs.

Amazon usually pays %8. That is how you make money through affiliate sales.


I know this sounds hard and complicated but its not. Well its not hard if you do it through Wealthy Affiliate.

Once you sign up for the free membership you will be taken through the process step by step. They have videos and courses that walk you through it all in the proper order. If you can’t figure something out they have live chat where you get help immediately.

If the live chat doesn’t help, you can post your problem publicly and the community will come together and work with you until you solve your problem.

That is why you don’t need any experience to succeed at this. You will have a massive group of experienced people all there to help you along the way.


There are litterally billions of topics you could choose from. The best way to start is to think about what you’re passionate about. Try to find a topic that you love and would enjoy writing about. This makes the work much more enjoyable.

If you don’t have any passions, well then Wealthy Affiliate has ways of helping you decide on a niche. They will give you examples and tricks for figuring out what you should write about.
