What is an Affiliate Marketer

If you have been looking around the world wide web for ideas to get started in an online business you have likely heard the term “Affiliate Marketing”. And you may be scratching your head and asking yourself, “Gee wiz… What is an affiliate marketer?” Fret not, young padawan. Sucker Free Online Business has your answer. Keep reading. I want to help you.

Affiliate Marketing

affiliate-marketing-planAffiliate marketing is where you, the affiliate marketer, will advertise goods and/or services to an audience. It does not necessarily have to be done online, but if you neglect the world wide web audience you are making a big mistake.

Affiliate marketing is probably the best place to start if you are looking to get an online business up and running. You will not start making money overnight, but the methods I can show you are tried and true. Let’s talk about the nuts and bolts of how it works.

There are three main components to affiliate marketing. There is an advertiser, a publisher and a consumer.

The advertiser is a person or business who wants to sell something. They have a product or service and they need to get the word out on the street about it. This can be a wide variety of things form software to books to household wares… Pretty much anything a someone would buy.

The publisher (or affiliate marketer) is a person or business who promotes the advertiser’s goods by means of marketing campaigns. This can be accomplished in a myriad of ways but probably the best and most successful way is via the public internet through what is called niche websites. More about that in a minute.

The final component is the consumer. That’s the guy or gal that’s going to buy whatever it is you’re promoting. There are many ways to reach this person, but the most successful and lucrative way is via an online presence or your niche website.

How do you get paid?

affiliate-marketing-makes-you-moneyIn most cases you will get paid a commission based on a sale of a product. That commission can and will vary greatly. My personal affiliate relationships range from 3% to around 50% in commission. In some cases it is just a flat rate on the sale but in most cases it is a percentage of the sale.

In addition to commission on sales you might also become an affiliate marketer who gets paid for each click from your page to an advertiser. That is called pay per click advertising.

In both cases there is a tracking tool that keeps a tally of your sales (or clicks) and keeps track of your business’s revenue. Payment method varies but it is usually either via check or paypal. I have never encountered an issue getting paid from an affiliate program I have partnered with and I almost always go the paypal route if it’s available.

Ready to get started?

Well hold on there, partner. I first want to say something that might ruffle some feathers. There are lots of unscrupulous and just plain lousy affiliate marketers on the world wide web. They either just plain don’t know what they are doing or are engaging in questionable marketing techniques. In both cases it may be intentional or not, but if you want to get into an online business and be in it for the long haul, you don’t want to be a crappy affiliate marketer.

A lot of times the more unscrupulous affiliate marketers are targeting other affiliate marketers. Why? Because it’s a growing field. A lot of people try and fail in this business. In many cases their failure can be directly attributed to being sold a crappy product that does not work.

There. I said it.

If you want to get into affiliate marketing, I strongly urge you to follow these two simple steps:

  1. Create a free website.
  2. Join Wealthy Affiliate.

Creating a website is a no brainer. You need to start somewhere and a free website is just the ticket. As I mentioned above, the best way to get involved in this field is to create a niche website. I cover how to create a free website and how to figure out what your niche should be in my article on how to create a free website.

Why should you join Wealthy Affiliate? Quite simply, it provides the best training and tools in the industry for potential entrepreneurs like yourself and best of all it is completely free to join. You do not need to provide a credit card or cancel a subscription. All you need is an email address. You won’t get spammed. I promise.

There is nothing like Wealthy Affiliate on the market that I have found. Yes there are other programs, and I’ve been suckered into them, but I have not found one that works nearly as well. Just remember that I was a sucker. You don’t have to be a sucker too.

As always, if you have questions, just ask in the comments below.

Is Zip Nada Zilch a Scam?

If you have found your way to this website, you are probably asking yourself, “Is Zip Nada Zilch a Scam?” Here at Sucker Free Online Business, we are here to answer your question.

In short, no, the product is not a scam, but you likely have been lured there by an unscrupulous marketer who has promised that you can start earning cash immediately. While this is not true for most people, the product itself is not a scam.

Price: $0 (maybe – see below)
Owner: Jeffery Kocurek
Sucker Rating: three-suckers (three suckers)
Who it’s for: People looking for a way to make money through referrals.

What is Zip Nada Zilch?

Zip Nada Zilch (ZNZ) is a website that offers cash payouts (among other prizes) for promoting their site and getting completed referrals (more on that in a second). They have multiple products but for this review we will be concentrating on ZNZOne and ZNZBigCash as those two products seem to be the most heavily promoted and are also the easiest to complete which is one step closer to getting paid by the product.

The ZNZ brands are owned by Jeffery Kocurek. I don’t have any information about him but ZNZ does earn an A+ from the Better Business Bureau but it is not accredited by the BBB.

The company was started in 2007 and claims to have paid out better than $9 million. That’s a lot of dinero.


How does it work?

The first step in making money with ZNZ is to sign up and complete your credits. You must earn 1.00 credits by accepting offers from the site for the selected program (ZNZOne and/or ZNZBigCash). Once you have earned 1.00 credits or more you are eligible to receive “prizes” for referring others who also earn 1.00 credits.

zip-nada-zilch-how-it-worksHere is how it works according to the website:

Step 1: Sign up to any of our sites using your real, valid information.

Step 2: Complete your credit requirements! Credits are earned by completing advertiser offers, and depending on the site of ours you sign up to, this will be anywhere from 0.50 to 3.00 credits. We work with companies such as Equifax, Blockbuster, DirecTV and many more!

Step 3: After completing your credit requirements, refer others and have them complete their credit requirements.

Step 4: After obtaining the required number of completed referrals for your prize, you’ll be able to submit an order into us for your prize!

At the time of this writing ZNZOne is paying $20 per referral and ZNZBigCash is paying $79 per referral.

What ZNZ is essentially doing is advertising offers for companies. Some of the products are really good and useful and you may find that you like some of them.

Sounds easy, right? Not so fast. Let’s get into that.

How do you complete your credit requirements?

I’m going to go through this for ZNZOne but the process is the same for both ZNZOne and ZNZBigCash.

You will need to sign up seperately for both ZNZOne and ZNZBigCash. The offers to complete are also separate. That means that if you complete an offer for ZNZOne, it does not count as a completed offer for ZNZBigCash.

Once you have created your account and are logged in, you need to click on the “Offers” tab on the website. This will bring up the current advertisement offers. On ZNZOne it is very possible to earn your 1.00 credits that are required for free.

ZNZOne Offers

I sorted the offers by “Cost” and clicked refresh. As you can see in my screen capture, you can earn the 1.00 credit by accepting the offers from “Free Grant Money” (0.40 credits), “MyScore.com” (0.40 credits) and “Target REDCard” (0.20 credits).

0.40 + 0.40 + 0.20 = 1.00 Credits

The rub is that if you already have an account with any of these offers, you cannot accept it from ZNZ. What that means is that if you already have a Target REDCard, you can’t get another one here, so you’d have to find another way to get your additional 0.20 credits.

I have found that most people can get 1.00 ZNZOne credits for free but you may have to spend a few bucks to get your full 1.00 credits for ZNZBigCash.

Here are a few of the current offers for ZNZBigCash, sorted by cost.

ZNZBigCash Offers

One thing that comes to mind is that you may find a product that you will actually use there. One of the offers that I selected to complete my required credits for ZNZBigCash was an offer I had to pay for, but I completed that over a year ago and I’m still using the product today.

You also must read the offer requirements very carefully. You can do this by mousing over the offer.


They can and will revoke your credit if you fail to follow the requirements carefully.

Once you have completed your requriements, you can then go to the “Prizes” tab and select your prize. Right now ZNZOne is paying $25 per referral as per the October and November promotions. Remember a referral must complete his or her credit requirements in order for you to earn a prize from it.


I selected paypal so that I can collect my $25 as soon as I earn a completed referral. But you can select any of the other prizes as well. As you can see, you can get a 16GB iPad if you garner 22 referrals from ZNZOne. ZNZBigCash offers an iPhone 6 for 8 referrals.

The prizes change every so often and there is almost always a promotion going on for all of the products. Here are the promotions for October and November, 2015:


Again, we are concentrating on ZNZOne and ZNZBigCash which are currently paying out $25 and $75, respectively per “completed” referral. Completed means they have earned at least 1.00 credits per product, just like you had to.

Is there residual income?

Nope, there is no residual income from ZNZ. Once you refer someone and they complete their credits, you get a one time payment.

So how do you get referrals?

This is where you will need to get creative. There is no training from ZNZ to tell you how to get referrals. A lot of people try to use craigslist and other online classifieds. The problem is that a lot of them have rules against marketing things like this so your ads will get flagged and removed almost as soon as you publish them.

You need to come up with a way to promote ZNZ, whether it’s ZNZOne or ZNZBigCash. While it is possible to get payouts, without a way to reach an audience, you are left with pressuring your friends and family to sign up and qualify.

But there is way.

Build a Sucker Free Website.

If you build a website, you can promote the ZNZ products. So if you want to get started with ZNZ here are the steps I recommend.

  1. Get started with ZNZOne.
  2. Get started with ZNZBigCash.
  3. Create your free website.

But success with ZNZ products will not come overnight. You will need to learn how to properly promote the products which is something that ZNZ falls painfully short in. If you want to learn how to promote ZNZ, or any other product, I recommend going through the training Wealthy Affiliate.

Is Zip Nada Zilch a Scam?

cashMy assessment is that ZNZ is not a scam, but you need to couple it with other marketing techniques. You can earn some cash, albeit not residual, from ZNZ but it will come from hard work and it will take time. Anyone telling you different is either lying or uninformed.

ZNZ is not going to deliver wheel barrels loaded with cash to your doorstep but when promoted properly, it may give you a bit of extra money.

Work From Home

home-officePeople ask me all the time,  if it is possible to earn a decent living working for yourself online. The simple answer is yes you can, but it is going to require work. A lot people are looking for a quick, easy fix to a financial situation. This aint it. If you decide to work from home you are going to work hard if you want to see any real success.

But remember what we say at Sucker Free Business Online. Hard work does not have to be hard. I’m here to help.

Why should I want to work from home?

There are a lot of reasons for me. First and foremost, I want to be able to spend time with my family. My daily routine usually allows me to cook dinner. I love cooking and my wife is grateful that I can take that off of her plate.

I’m also able to spend much more time with my kids. I’m almost always home when the leave for school and home when they return. That is a stark contrast to the grind I used to bare of battling traffic for hours to get to an office, work 9 or so hours and battle hours of traffic to get home.

I want to be able to work when I want. If I want to take a few hours off to go have lunch with my dad, I can. I don’t stress over scheduling doctor appointments during the day. I work when I want.

work-at-the-beachI want to be able to work where I want. All I need is an internet access point and I’m able to work. It’s as simple as that. I can go to the beach or to the mountains. I can travel and spend extended visits with friends and family. All I need is a trusty internet connection and I’m golden.

I have helped mentor people that have had disabilities that prevented them from doing a regular 9 to 5 job. Online opportunities allows them to be able to earn a good living while working from home.

If you want to work from home, how do you start?

It all starts with a business idea and a website. If you have not read it yet, I suggest your go read my article on how to create a website for free. It goes over selecting what your business will be (your niche) and tells you step by step how to create your website.

You need to create content.

blogOnce you have your website built you need to start creating your content. Remember that hard work I was talking about before? This is where it comes in.

You need to start researching content relevant to your niche and writing about it. There is a method to this and it is covered very nicely at Wealthy Affiliate.

It’s not quite as simple as just writing out some webpages. The training at wealthy affiliate will teach you how to make beautiful content that will get noticed by search engines. The methods shown there are tried and true and are working for a lot of people just like you.

You definitely do not want to steal content form other sites. We refer to that as “scraped content”. That is a huge no-no and will likely get you whacked with a big fat ban stick from the search engines. That would mean nobody would be able to find your website and if nobody can find your website you cannot make money off of it. Web traffic = money.

How much content do I need to create?

You will need to create a lot of content, but your work should be spread out. What you want to do is add content on a regular basis to your website. I usually recommend that people create two pages of content (blog posts) per week. That is an easily attainable goal for most people.

The thing you don’t want to do is create 7 pages of content every week for a month then not create any content for a month. You need to be consistent in your posting. Search engines have algorithms that crawl your pages and check for updated content. If you are not creating content regularly you will lose ranking.

It takes me, on average, about an hour to create one quality blog post. Everyone is different, though. You may be able to do it faster or it may take you a little longer.

I can’t think of what to write about.

In the beginning this should in no way be an issue for you. You should have selected a topic that interests you and something you either know a lot about or can learn a lot about. You want to be a subject matter expert in your niche.

However, we all get writer’s block from time to time. There are several ways to combat this and here are a few.

  • Write extra content when you are extra inspired and save for later.
  • Search your niche and harvest ideas from what others are writing about.
  • Visit web forums and see what questions people are asking. Answer them in your content.
  • Talk to a friend about your niche and get ideas from them.
  • Email me

Seriously, email me. I’m here to help. You can find my email address on my About page.

But what if I fail?

blind-failureThere is one common thing that I can say about everyone who has failed in establishing a lucrative online business. They quit before they succeeded.

You are probably new at this and you have a lot to learn. Heck, I’ve been at it for 8 years and I still have a lot to learn. The good news is that there are great resources that I can show you to get you going. You just need to not quit.

But Rome was not built in a day. Your online business will not be either. This is going to be something you are going to work at for a while.

The thing is, I want you to succeed. Your success is a direct reflection of me, but you have to do the lion’s share of the work. Just remember, it should be fun. If it is not, you need to rethink your niche.

briefcase-full-of-moneyWhen will I start making money?

You should expect your first briefcase stuffed with cash to arrive at your house within three business minutes of the launch of your brand new website that nobody has ever heard of. There will also be world peace and an end to homelessness and hunger.


The only thing I can say about when you will start making money with absolute certainty is, “I don’t know.”

I was just talking to a young lady yesterday who made her first conversion (money from her online business). She had been at it for a whopping 4 days. So it is possible you could start making money right away, but I would caution you that it is highly unlikely.

It took me about six months before I saw my first dollar of revenue from an online business. And even that was pence. I had worked so hard that I did not know if I should laugh or cry. Success does not cover overnight, but if you are diligent and learn the right way to do things (and continue learning) success cannot evade you. I did it the wrong way so you don’t have to. I’m a sucker, remember?

Work from home.

Did you think of your niche? Did you create your free website? If not, what are you waiting for? Success wants to be found. Isn’t it about time you built your own wealth instead of building someone else’s?

Remember, I’m hear to help. I’d love to hear your thoughts. Please leave me a comment or question below.

How to Create a Website for Free

If you are going to build a business online, what do you think the very first thing you are going to need will be? Cash? A business plan? Wrong. You need a website! And I can show you how to create a website for free. You don’t even need a computer. That’s not right. Of course you need a computer.

Pick a niche

marketing-successFirst things first, let’s think about what your online business will be. It does not have to be an eCommerce or internet sales idea but it certainly can be. You can monetize a website that is about anything. In the online business world this is what we call a niche. I highly recommend that you pick something that you enjoy doing or talking about. Pick a hobby or a passion. It will make the content creation for your website a lot easier.

Do you love hiking? You could create a website that talks about that? What about fishing? I could write a thousand blog posts about angling the trout streams in the Shenandoah Mountains. How about music? Everyone loves music. You could write reviews for albums or if you’re anything like my wife who is a walking encyclopedia of rock & roll you could write about music history.

One thing you need to do though is make your niche very pointed. What I mean by this is make it narrow. You want to target something specific. I think the biggest problem a lot of people have with their niche is they make it too broad.

Suppose you chose the niche “exercise”. That’s a really good one because the trend today is to workout more and to have a healthier lifestyle as opposed to when I was growing up which was to not work out at all and to eat big macs. But what kind of exercise do you want to target? Is it body building (which is not just for body builders), aerobics, crossfit, jazzersize, P90X… That list could go on and on.

The point is you want to target just one specific thing. One that you are or can become an expert in because while creating your website is easy, building its content is going to be some pretty hard work. But don’t forget that hard work can be fun as long as you pick something you enjoy. Hard work does not have to be hard!

Pick a website name

Once you’ve decided on a niche for your website it’s time to pick a website name. If you are going to create a free website it will be what is called a sub-domain. That’s just a fancy word for a site that is hosted on another site.



  1. a subdivision of a domain.
    “artificial intelligence is a hazily defined field with two related subdomains”
      an Internet domain which is part of a primary domain.
      “within the .us domain, there are subdomains for the fifty states”

Suppose I selected the niche “body building”. You want your domain name to reflect what the site is going to be about. But don’t overthink it. We are starting with a free website but at some point you may want to purchase a domain. This is definitely not required but it is something to keep on mind. So let’s head over to NameCheap and check for domain availability.

For my niche I like the name Build a Better Body. Let’s check that. Here’s how to do that.

Once on NameCheap and you’ll be greeted with a search form that looks like this:


Now that I’m there, I’ll punch buildabetterbody into the search form (where it says “Find your new domain name”) and click the “Search” button. After a few seconds NameCheap will display the results for the website domain we’re searching for.

Rats! buildabetterbody.com is taken. We could select the dot net offering but I really prefer to get the dot com. I’m from the US and that’s what most people are used to and I want my targeted audience to be able to find me quickly and easily.


As you can see, we do have the option to make an offer to buy buildabetterbody.com but that is not something I would do or ever recommend. You want to pay retail and whoever owns the site is probably going to want an inflated price. Let’s try something different.

How about “bodybuildingresults”? Jackpot! I like that name better anyway.


As you can see, we got the shopping cart button on that one, so bodybuildingresults.com is available. You can purchase it if you like. It is only around $11 (at the time of this writing), but we are concentrating on doing this for free. I just like to see if the domain is available when building my free sites. It makes swapping them to a domain I own easier if I decide to do that down the road.

At this stage, I’m not going to purchase the domain. If that domain does sell (which is not likely) before I decide to buy the domain it is not going to hurt me at all. I just might have to make some changes to some of my content if I’m referencing it as a brand. I just want you to be aware that at some point you are probably going to want to buy a domain so you can develop your brand, but it is definitely not required. You can do everything for free.

OK, so we’ve selected our niche and picked a good domain name. You know what time it is now?

Time to create your free website

There are scores of places that offer free website creation. At some point or another I’ve probably been on most of them just to check out their features. Some of them are pretty good and offer some decent web authoring tools. But remember, we’re not just building a website here. We are building a business. The absolute, hands down, best place to host your business website is Wealthy Affiliate. Checkout my review of their product and create your starter account here.

Wealthy Affiliate supports building a website with WordPress which is not only the most popular blogging tool on the planet, but it also a very robust content management platform. That’s fancy talk for a way to create your website content. It also allows you to create and manipulate menus, widgits and controls the look and feel of your site. There are over 29,000 plugins for WordPress to help you get the look and feel that you want.

If you’re a techie like me, you can also get your hands dirty and write some code (in php) to further customize your site.

Once you have created your starter account and are logged in, roll up your sleeves and let’s get ready to create your fee website.

Put your mouse pointer over the light blue menu item on the left side of your screen that reads “SiteRubix”. In the sub-menu that pops up will be “SiteBuilder”. Click “Go” on that.


You will then be brought to the page that will build your website for you. Remember, we are concentrating on doing this for free, but if you ever purchase a domain, you will come to this same screen to create your website with it.

For step 1 you want to click on “A Free Website” and a dialog will appear below it. Punch your domain name you selected earlier in that dialog. For me, I’m entering bodybuildingresults.


Remember when I talked about sub-domains a few minutes ago? Your site will be a sub-domain of siterubix.com and its web address will look like this: bodybuildingresults.siterubix.com. It’s basically telling all of the servers out there on the public internet that it is a website within a website. Sort of.

For Step 2, you want to add a name. This is pretty unimportant. It is just how your website will be displayed within the Wealthy Affiliate interface. I usually name mine the same as my website. You can change it later if you want, but you cannot change your domain name. Ever. You can create a new domain and transfer all of your content to your new site but that’s a topic for later.


In Step 3 you will select your theme. Your theme is how your website will look when people visit it. A Wealthy Affiliate starter account has limited themes. If you upgrade to a premium account you will have access to thousands. But for now, just look through the starter themes and select one that you think looks good.

I’m a fan of clean looking sites. It is your content that is going to make your site popular, not the look and feel, but let’s not downplay that too much. As a normal, rational thinking human being, I am attracted to shiny objects. The better your site looks, the more apt someone will be to read its pages and posts and the longer they will stay on it.

Scroll through the themes and demo a couple of them by clicking the demo button on that particular theme. I like the “Hero” theme for my website, so I’m selecting that. You can change this later if you decide you like a different theme.


Finally, I’m ready to build my free website. At the bottom of your page you should see a grayish looking box with a big blue button in the middle of it. Click it and standby. You’re a few seconds away from having your free website.


Wait for it…


Wait for it…

Bam! You’re done. You are now the proud parent of your very own free business website. (Make sure your business is sucker free.) See. That was easy.

Alright, as I always preach on Sucker Free Online Business, there is now some hard work to do. If you check out your site, you will see it’s void of anything useful.


You need to get busy creating content for your website. But as long as you were smart and followed my advice about picking a niche you are interested in, that hard work does not have to be hard.

You can checkout your website and log into the content management by clicking the links on the page that displayed after your website was built. Click on “Domain Name” to visit your site. If you want to log into your site to manage the content and look and feel,  click the “Login Now” button under “Your Website Administrator Users”.


You probably need some help in getting started in your content creation. I highly recommend that you follow Kyle’s training at Wealthy Affiliate. He is one of the owners over there and a really smart guy. Click the green “Getting Started” button in the upper left hand portion of your screen and you will be brought to the beginning of some really fantastic training. If you follow his training carefully, you will soon have a revenue producing website.

Wealthy Affiliate Review

My wealthy affiliate review gives the Grand Poobah of all ratings. That means that it has earned five suckers, my highest rating and it’s nearly sucker free! If you want to know the true meaning of “sucker free”, please visit my About page.

Who it’s for: Anyone who wants to build an online business.

What is Wealthy Affiliate and who is it for?

Wealthy Affiliate is a platform with comprehensive tools and training for building any type of successful online business. It is more than just a place to build a website, but the website building tool they have crafted is superb and very user friendly. It has been designed so that anyone can have a website up and running in under thirty seconds.

Of coarse, you will still have to create content for your new sucker free website, but Wealthy Affiliate has you covered there, as well, with lots of great training and other resources.

The owners, Kyle and Carson, are extremely active in the community. They have both been in the business of making money online for many years. They founded Wealthy Affiliate in 2005 so this product is definitely not the new kid on the block. Their passion is to help people to be successful in establishing an online presence that can be turned into a sucker free money making machine.

Are there pros and cons?

As with any product, there are always pros and cons. Here is my take on them for Wealthy Affiliate.


  • Great training
  • Community Support
  • Technical Support
  • Keyword Research (which is critical for building an online business)
  • Incredible Tools like their three click website builder.


  • Information overload
  • Suggestions from users who might not have a clue what they are talking about

information-overloadWhat I mean by “Information overload” is that there is so much useful information on Wealthy Affiliate that it might be easy to become overwhelmed. I know that happened to me for the first hour or two I was browsing around the site. Thankfully with a little help from the community (including Kyle, the co-owner) I was well on my way to getting started shortly thereafter.

Let me also explain a little further with regards to my second “con”. Some of the users are very new to online business. A lot of times the help they offer is, well, not very helpful at all. As one of my mentors says, “Opinions are like belly buttons. Just because everyone has one does not mean they are all useful.

This should be taken with a grain of salt, though, because even though there are some users whose advice you may want to ignore, there are scores of users who are very experienced in establishing successful sucker free online businesses as well. You just may not want carefully evaluate whose advice you decide to follow.

My advice is to get to know the person offering you a “tip” by reading their profile, talking to them and even browse their sites. If their sites are bad, chances are their “help” may not be as effective as someone who has a slick one and has been in online business for a while.

Just because a person is a “newb” does not mean their insight may not be helpful. There have been several times when new users have made suggestions to me, a veteran of online business for many years, that have been helpful.

In a sense, you might say there are a few suckers at Wealthy Affiliate. Remember I said it was nearly sucker free, not completely. *No disrespect is intended to anyone on the site. The community really is fantastic. Everyone is very nice and eager to help.*

What makes Wealthy Affiliate unique?

There are several things that make this product unique. Although I have listed “newbie users” as a con, one of Wealthy Affiliate’s greatest assets is its community. If you have a question (and ask it) you will likely get several answers within an hour or two.

There truly is nothing on the market anything like Wealthy Affiliate that I can find.

What kind of training does Wealthy Affiliate provide?

wealthy-affiliate-classroomsHow much time do you have? The sucker free tool and training list is pretty vast. Here is a quick list of the training available:

  • Getting Started
  • Affiliate Training
  • Keyword Research

  • Writing and authoring content
  • And much, much more…

There is so much quality training on Wealthy Affiliate that I know that you will find all of the training you need to get you going down the path to a successful online business. And if you cannot find something you need in the expansive training, there is an “Ask a question” platform that will get you the answer and help you need on literally every subject pertaining to an online business.

What kind of tools are available?

The tool set available at Wealthy Affiliate is very vast which makes it a very unique platform. All of the other products I have looked at, reviewed or used have paled in comparison. Most of them either had non existent tools, weak tools or just one or two tools. If all you have is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail.

Wealthy Affiliate has a chest full of tools to get the job done right the first time so you don’t have to worry about trying to tighten a bolt with a crow bar. Here is a list of just some of the tools available:

  • use-the-right-toolsA very clever, easy to use website creator
  • Keyword Research Tools
  • Low Competition Keyword Lists
  • An “Ask for help” platform
  • State of the Art Website hosting (including free websites)
  • 24/7 Technical Support
  • Community Support
  • And much, much more…

OK, but what kind of technical support is available?

On top of the community driven support for building your website there is also great technical support at Wealthy Affiliate. Every time I have had to use it (yes, I have really used it) the response times have been very good.

The technical support is geared mostly for your websites but there is also technical support for your user account.

So how much does it cost?

The cost to start on Wealthy Affiliate is a very round $0. That’s right. You can start right now by creating a starter account and be well on your way to creating your very own successful online business, No credit card is required and there is no risk.

There is, of course, a premium offering which provides more features. There is quite a bit of bang for the buck if you go premium. Here is a side by side comparison of the Starter vs Premium memberships.


Now I’m about to get real. Yes, the premium membership costs $49 (I pay it every month) and yes I want you to buy it. And for full disclosure, if you decide to buy it, I will make some money from your (wise) decision to do so.

I’m convinced that you will find Wealthy Affiliate so useful that if you sign up for the starter account, go through the getting started training and kick the tires of some of the other features, you will see the value and upgrade to a premium account. I know you can be successful using the tools, training and methods outlined at Wealthy Affiliate. I want to help you and I will be there to answer any questions you may have and get you pointed down the path to success.

You can also sign up for a premium membership if you are really ready to jump in with both feet. Right now if you decide to start with a premium membership, you can join for $19 for the first month! That’s around 63¢ per month. That’s a lot of bang for less than a buck.

With all of that said, I don’t want you to have any misconceptions regarding this or any other product. This is not a get rich quick scheme. You will not sign up today, whether with a starter or a premium account, and be raking in cash tomorrow. There is no such thing as getting rich quick or easy. A fair degree of work is going to be required to get you to the point where you can quit your day job and live on Easy Street. And quite frankly, Easy Street isn’t easy, but it sure is a lot more fun than working a 9 to 5 grind.

But you can do it and I want to help you.

And the final verdict is (plus a bonus)…

My personal opinion is that we can call Wealthy Affiliate a vehicle to start a sucker free online business and it is the best vehicle to your success that you will find. The community is fantastic and very helpful and supportive. The tools and training will provide you everything you need to start building your successful online business.

Wealthy Affiliate is the vehicle for success for any online endeavor whether it is affiliate marketing, eCommerce or something else. What are you waiting for? There is no risk and you can get going with your starter membership today for absolutely free.


How to claim your bonus
