3 Ways On How To Make Money On Wealthy Affiliate!

3 Ways on how to make money on Wealthy AffiliateDid you know that you can make money on the Wealthy Affiliate platform itself??  I will show you in my video walk through how this is done!

For those that don’t know, Wealthy Affiliate is a great online training platform that teaches you how to start your own online business and make money online using the affiliate marketing business model.

That’s actually the MAIN way to make money with Wealthy Affiliate and the other ways mentioned in this post are on top of this.

Their training is especially good for beginners as they have step-by-step lessons that you can go through at your own pace and build your website as you go.

Not only that, when you join Wealthy Affiliate, you’re actually also joining a huge community of like minded people who are all doing the same thing, building an online business.

It’s great to already have a network of people you can ask questions to and get support from whenever you need help.

For more detailed information about their training courses and what features/tools are available, check out my full review here:

Today, I will show you the following 3 ways to make money on their platform:

  1. Wealthy Affiliate’s Affiliate Program
  2. Referral’s Account Setup
  3. Create New Training

You can see me explain the three ways on Wealthy Affiliate in my video walkthrough below and I will also offer you some bonus info here that’s not in the video: BONUS TIP: How To Get Tons More Referrals!

So let’s get to it!




Wealthy Affiliate teaches affiliate marketing so it only makes sense for them to also have an affiliate program for free and paid members to join so they can earn money by referring others to their training platform.

What’s great about their affiliate program is that they have a recurring feature, meaning you can earn as long as your referral remains a paying member!

Also, if they stop being a Premium member and come back later, you will continue to earn from that referral, therefore your referral will last a lifetime which is awesome!


How Does It Work?

Every member inside Wealthy Affiliate will have an affiliate link in the “Program Details” section under the Airplane top right menu like this:

Affiliate Link for Wealthy Affiliate

You are actually able to grab an affiliate link to ANY page on Wealthy Affiliate so if you wanted to use some of the content on there, you just need to look for the affiliate link button for that page.

You can then use those affiliate links on your blog or social media accounts to promote the training platform with.

The current metrics is that 1 in 8 people who join Wealthy Affiliate will convert to a Premium member, that’s over 12% conversion rate!


How Much Money Can You Make?

As a Starter (Free) member, you can make as follows:

If your referral upgrades within the first 7 days to a monthly membership, you will earn $4, after that your recurring commission will be $11.75.

If your referral upgrades after the first 7 days, it’s still the monthly commission of $11.75.

If your referral upgrades to an annual membership, you will earn $87.50.

Going annual only makes sense because you will need the support of the community plus the tools available on the platform for at least a year.

Also, you will save a ton of money buying an annual membership than to pay month to month.

If you’re a Premium member yourself, you will earn double what a Starter member earns, so your commissions are:

  • $8 if upgrade within first 7 days
  • $23.50 recurring monthly
  • $175 for annual memberships

Annual commissions are held for 30 days before they are paid out, otherwise all other commissions are paid out the 1st of the following month via PayPal.  Minimum payouts are as low as $10.


Affiliate Program PERK

If you are able to get 300 Premium referrals within a calendar year, you will be invited to an all paid, 3 day, Super Affiliate Conference held in Las Vegas!

You’ll be able to meet and hangout with the owners, Kyle & Carson, in person while also meeting other Super Affiliates as well.

The three days are packed with fun entertainment as well as awesome learning for even more strategies to get more referrals and make even more money in the coming year.

Here’s a video of the 2017 Super Affiliate Conference compiled by one of the attendees:




When you first sign up on Wealthy Affiliate you will have an account profile that is empty without a profile picture or a description of who you are.

One of the ways to earn 2 credits worth $0.50/each is to encourage your referrals to upload a profile picture and write a description to introduce themselves.

This is actually encouraged so that others in the community can recognize you better and will be more comfortable communicating with you on the platform.

The platform actually makes it easy for you to upload a profile picture because it offers generic pictures of a puppy or cat or car, etc, so if your referral is not comfortable using their own picture, then they can use one of those.

Introducing yourself on the platform with a profile description is a great way for others to learn about you and you learn about other members.

Connecting and networking will help you further your online success by far!




After being a Premium member for three months, you’ll be able to start creating trainings on there.  The training can be about anything to do with building an affiliate marketing online business.

Therefore you can create new training for WordPress tips, how to create a certain way you’ve discovered, other ways to make money with your blog, and other topics that will help other members further their online journey.

If there’s a topic you searched on Wealthy Affiliate that you couldn’t find, that’s a great indication a new training is needed!

Find the answer yourself and then create a training to earn some extra money.  Trust me, other members will thank you!

The training can be in video format like the ones I’ve made:

Wealthy Affiliate Member Training


Or the training can be a step-by-step written tutorials, it’s up to you what you want to teach other members.

The more you people like your training, view it, and comment on there, the higher your training will rank.

The higher you rank, the more money you will make at different levels.  Each level is worth 10 credits with the same worth of $0.50 each.

It’s not that hard to reach level one, so you can earn $5 easily but the other levels will take a bit longer to reach.




Here’s my video walkthrough of the 3 ways on how to make money on Wealthy Affiliate!

When you are a member on the Wealthy Affiliate platform, you can blog on there and ask questions – these all turn into pages on the platform.

Because Wealthy Affiliate’s website is highly ranked on Google, anything you create on there, whether a blog or ask a question or training, the content you create on there can be searched by anyone on the internet.

If someone clicks on your content from a Google search and ends up signing up on Wealthy Affiliate, that referral is YOURS!

That is why anything you create on Wealthy Affiliate, it’s important to also use appropriate keywords and don’t only think that only members will be able to see your content.

Everyone on the internet has the potential to see your Wealthy Affiliate posts!

Because you’re the author, you will be credited with that referral since it was because of your content that drove that person into Wealthy Affiliate.

I really love the number of ways you can earn and get referrals on this training platform and that’s why they are the best place to be if you want to create an online business for yourself!

    Liked this post, very informative, I didn’t think you can earn money in these ways. I expected the affiliate program and but the credit system seems very cool too.

    The affiliate program seems very generous too, I will have to check this out.
