How to earn money from home online #3

3. Wealthy Affiliate


The very reason I can do what I love!

A few short years ago I would never have dreamt that I would have my own website that details my journey with arthritis and my fight back against the disease.

And I have loved developing the website, documenting my successes and offering tips and advice to other fighters.

The fact is I didn’t have a clue how to develop a website or attract people to the site, that is where Wealthy Affiliate came in.

While trawling the internet wondering how to earn money from home online I came across Wealthy Affiliate and there 7-day free trial.

There was no need to enter card details which always pleases me. I hate the programs online that tell you it’s free but then want your card details anyway.

After 4 days of my 7-day free trial, I had signed up.

In that time my site was built. it was up and running and I had learnt an astonishing amount about how websites work and how affiliate marketing works.

A quick run-through

For those that don’t know about affiliate marketing, I  will give a very basic overview.

When you have a website that has visitors (traffic) you can then promote products. It’s usually best to promote products you have had firsthand experience with and that you trust and believe in.

A lot of businesses and products have affiliate programs in this day and age, there are so many websites and people browsing the internet that affiliates help to spread a message or a product.

You apply to whatever affiliate program you like and promote the products using links they provide you with.

Then if a person purchases the product from clicking on your link, you will get a percentage of the sale from the company.

That is a very basic way of describing it, Wealthy Affiliate has so much training that goes into just about everything you need to know to become a successful marketer.

The beauty of this for me was that I was suggesting products I use anyway then as soon as you get enough visitors to your site as I did, you can get links that can earn you little commissions.

Again I haven’t managed to accrue enough earnings to retire but the little and often is nice to see and reinforces the point that the earnings can soon snowball into a substantial income.


The benefits have been awesome!

Honestly, I have learnt so much since joining Wealthy Affiliate or WA as it is affectionately called by its 300,000+ members.

There is so much first-class training on there that a complete novice like I am can go on to build a website and produce articles that people actually read and enjoy!

If that isn’t enough, the members are incredible human beings who believe in giving and helping one another.

It makes you feel a part of a wonderful community who all help each other to reach their goals.

Very successful marketers are on their dishing out free advice and tips as well as producing training videos of their own.

They don’t just make 5-6 figures a month and think stuff everyone else I don’t need to help them, they are always on hand to help.

Another wonderful thing is you don’t even have to sign up if you don’t want to, by the end of your 7-day trial your website will be set up and you can go it alone if you are confident enough.

Signing up appealed to me because of the amount of support you get for the inner workings of the website and of course the incredible WA community and ongoing training.

There are new training videos literally every week giving you magical tips and tricks.

If you are interested then click here for your free trial.

I have earned some extra money, learnt some new skills and made some incredible friends! I have also earnt money whilst being asleep which is pretty cool.

The truth is nearly all the websites you visit will be earning money from their website in some way whether that be from adverts, products or both.

If you have a passion you want to write about you can consider making your own site and earning money from it yourself, you can do it anywhere with your laptop and an internet connection.

Both Mike Cruickshanks betting systems and Wealthy Affiliate earn me extra money that means I only need to work part-time.

That gives me the time to work on my arthritis recovery and the money to put towards it.

It gives me the hope that if I continue to develop these new skills it will eventually lead me to success and more financial freedom.

  1. Sounds like an amazing site! I have tried so many online, make money quick ideas, and they are always too good to be true. This sounds like it may be legit. I agree with you, I hate the “free” websites that still want my credit card information. Doesn’t that negate it being free? Thank you for sharing, I am definitely going to try this out and see how it is!

    1. Hi Travis, I am glad the article seems of use to you. If you need anymore assistance do not hesitate to drop us a line and I will help you to the best of my ability.

  2. Thanks for the info! I agree Wealthy Affiliate has changed so many lives, and I’m glad you could share your experience with us. 

    WA is the BEST way to start making money online from home. If anyone is doubting whether it will work for them or not, just give it a shot. I mean, it’s free to try! Why not?

  3. And what’s great about WA is that it can really be geared toward any niche out there. It isn’t just a uniformed way of showing users how to earn money with one approach, instead, any approach can be used. I have four sites with a slight variance in each niche and I know I’m not done yet. It just goes to show the versatility of WA and it truly can be for everyone looking to earn online income. 

  4. Thanks for sharing WA with others.

    I’ve actually been a member now for a year and a half and I have to say, it’s an amazing platform!  Just like you, I’ve learned so much in the time that I’ve been here and have actually built two quality websites.

    The skills I’ve developed by following their trainings has been so helpful in developing my sites and building traffic.

    To anyone reading this post, do yourself a favor and sign up for the free Starter account.  Check it out for yourself and see if it’s something that makes sense for you.

    Thanks again,


    1. Hi Scott, thanks for taking time to read and comment. It’s great to hear from the many other people who have experienced success on this platform but that is no doubt down to your hard work and endeavour.

      Yes WA gives you a truck-load of training but you have to be prepared to give your time to learn it. There is no denying in my mind that if you put the time and effort in then you can see the rewards.

  5. making money online cannot be much easier than through affiliate marketing and learning affiliate marketing cannot be made more simpler than what wealthy affiliate has presented. I really like the website with their training and support. I am a member and I benefited from the training and still benefiting from it till now. This is just simply awesome. Thanks for sharing such an amazing website has this. Thumbs up

  6. Thank you for this great article. I just started wealthy affiliate in August of this year. So far I’ve been putting my website together piece-by-piece and wealthy affiliate offers a lot of help such as giving you some clear directions in the beginning so you know where to start, and also they have good website hosting. The fact that they take care of the website hosting all in one package is itself a great value and the beginning course material give you some clear directions for the first steps to take, which might be less clear if you tried to wade through all the free information online and figure it out yourself. Thanks for the great article and I hope you have a great day.

  7. It is very nice of you to share this post on how to get some good money on wealthy affiliate. I have just joined the platform a few months ago but not really had time to explore all the good qualities it has. Reading through,I can see that there is really more than one-way to make money through the platform. I will give it more time now and hopefully I will be able to make some bucks. Thank you for this eye-opener.

  8. Obviously there isn’t anyone who is forever ready to keep answering to the calls of their boss at work to get some files ready lot type a letter. Starting a work frok home is one of the best retirement plan anyone can go into as there isn’t much risk involved in it compared to having to go investing ones pension in some other stuffs.
    Wealthy affiliate have been one of the best platfrom that help train an individual very well in other to start an online business and even go as far and giving you lesson on some tools which you can use as well and hosting your site for those who will be opening a blog page for a very cheap fee. Its nice being a member of WA.

    1. Totally agree with you Benson it can be a risky business looking for things to invest in. I suppose it is a cliche but with running your own website you are investing in yourself and yes there are no bosses to answer to, you are only accountable to yourself.

      You are right with all the training and tools we are provided with at WA it is nice to be a part of.

  9. Wealthy affiliate has really changed the lives of so many people out there and even till today, many others are joining. Like you, a few years ago today I never thought that I would be creating my own website at all but now I am very happy that I have been able to do that and I get commissions as well from stuff I sell. It’s been very awesome for me. More people need to see this. Nice post!

  10. I experimented with more than one other “how to” affiliate marketing site without much success before I found Wealthy Affiliate. It offers best way to get started and be successful in affiliate marketing. Training is so important, and Wealthy Affiliate’s free training is great, but what I like most about it is the support, both from experts but also from fellow affiliate marketers. It really is the very best and most supportive site!

    1. Thank you for reading and commenting. I completely agree with you the support is unbelievable! Everyone on the platform is so helpful and positive and you really feel welcomed and a part of something. There are also some big big earners on there who are still incredibly grounded and helpful to others!

  11. I’m thrilled you were able to create and continue to add to the Arthritis Fight website with the help of Wealthy Affiliate! 

    I have been a member with WA for several months now and I am amazed at everything I’ve learned and accomplished in this short time. The training, tools, and support offered is like no other platform I’ve found and the community can’t be beat. I would recommend Wealthy Affiliate to anyone who wishes to branch out into online business! I wish continued success for you and your site in the future 🙂

    1. Thank you for your kind words Shan. 

      The Arthritis Fight wouldn’t exist if I hadn’t had came across Wealthy Affiliate. I also don’t think my recovery would be going as well as it is either if I didn’t have this site and its awesome followers.

      It has given me so much and changed my life, I hope it can do that for others!

    1. Hi Jordan, thank you for joining in the discussion it’s great to hear from you. I totally agree with you it has opened my eyes as well, it has made me so much more positive and has shown me all the opportunities there are for me and helps me move closer to realising my dreams!

  13. Wealthy Affiliate is amazing and its the best place to learn how to make money online. The training and support are truly unbelievable. However, people need to realise that it’s not a get rich quick scheme. You will only make money form it through hard work and consistency. So often people have unrealistic views of making money online. Great review!
