Wealthy Affiliate Success Stories
All of the people below started a free account on WA, followed the training, took action, asked for help when needed, and thrived! You can do it too!
1. Eddy Salomon
Eddy started making money running his affiliate marketing business around the year 2008 more than his job at Corporate America. It was at this time that he made the choice to leave and decided to be a stay at home dad, raising his kids while earning money at the same time from his home.
His source of income comes from his blog WorkAtHomeNoScams.com and has put up another blog MoreRealReviews.com. He has recently diversified his income and traffic sources by starting a Youtube channel, as well. It is not only Eddy who gets to make money online but by sharing reviews of making money online (MMO) opportunities, his audience also gets the chance to earn money from home!
Eddy believes that he wasn’t born knowing all about affiliate marketing, but because he learned a lot from being a member of Wealthy Affiliate and because he worked his ass off before all of his hard work paid off in the end.
A key takeaway from Eddy’s story: “You can achieve anything if you have the right mindset, take action, and don’t give up on yourself.”
Steve started his website I’ve Tried That in 2007 in order to help people determine online scams that people looking into the field of online marketing businesses must avoid.
He turned his website into an online stream of income and a full-time career by joining Wealthy Affiliate back in 2009. He only checked out the site as a part of his review, but with the provided training and support of Wealthy Affiliate, he never left. He also adds: “I’m never leaving.”
Thanks to Wealthy Affiliate and his trust in them, he was able to go travel around the world.
Steve is a hard believer in not stopping until he has reached everything he wants to achieve in life.
John lives in Sweden and makes money on autopilot with his website Start Make Stop Waste. He has even made over 600 euro in just a single day!
Wealthy Affiliate helped John reach his goals and he hopes to help a lot of people as well in reaching their goals, too. He is happy and contented with his life of taking photos, reading books, working out, and spending time with the people he loves the most.
But John doesn’t stop there, he aims for more, and he’s not going to stop until he reaches all of them.
I think we can all learn from John that starting an online affiliate marketing business is inevitably hard and bumpy in the beginning, but we must never give up because it will all pay off in the end. It’s all about consistency and having patience.
Jason is from Jamaica and has worked as a waiter before he started with his affiliate marketing business back in 2014 with Wealthy Affiliate.
The training provided by Wealthy Affiliate helped Jason in earning a living online through his website How to Stay Safe on The Net while being surrounded by his family. He loves the model of affiliate marketing because you won’t ever need a product of your own, you just have to recommend a product to your audience. You put in the initial work, sit back, and let everything run its course.
Jason claims that you could do this as well, as long as you stay focused on reaching your goals and dedicate yourself to the process. I quote, “You are the one responsible for your own success.”
You see, Kevin has the most normal and mundane life you could ever think of. He went to school, got good grades, went to university, and worked for a bank in London as a lawyer. Daily commute, everyday traffic, and office politics; all of these never made him completely happy… and to think – he will have to go through all of that for the rest of his life.
But, Kevin believes that there is so much more to life. He wanted to do something that he loves to do.
Kevin lost his job due to the relocation of the company, he didn’t know it at the time, but this was actually a blessing in disguise.
Because of this, he started looking up home business opportunities and became a part of a well-known multi-level marketing company. He started to love what he was doing, and soon enough, after 12 months, he was already earning the same monthly income as he was earning monthly in his previous job.
A few years later, he discovered Wealthy Affiliate and became a member back in 2014. The things he learned from Wealthy Affiliate helped him become a frontline in the online marketing industry. Now, he is aiming to further his development and work with people like him who only wants success in life.
Though Kevin admits that some of his online home businesses were successful, while some others were a flop. But you see, according to Kevin, your biggest challenge will always be your own mindset and personal development. Your income can only grow, as long as your mindset grows, as well.
Jason lives in California but gets to travel to Las Vegas, too! All thanks to Wealthy Affiliate. He gets to travel, and he gets to do to the things that he loves – watching movies, video games, reading, fishing – while earning money at the same time.
He initially thought that starting an online business was nearly impossible, but with the help of Wealthy Affiliate, he was able to build a clear plan for his home business and eventually started building himself up.
You see, Jason started with zero experience, but look at him now meeting with other online business owners and Wealthy Affiliate members. He is confident that you can also start with no experience at all, and experience success too!
Kuda is from Zimbabwe and he promotes different programs and others make money online (MMO) opportunities through his website kudaonline.com. He made this possible with the help of Wealthy Affiliate. Kuda was able to increase his revenue and get continuous leads every day.
But of course, just like everyone else, he started out as a newbie and was tight on cash since he had to look after himself and his family. He invested in programs that would soon vanish into thin air and kept on losing money.
Kuda then studied his strategies and shifted his mindset to investing in education and mentorship. It was with Wealthy Affiliate that he learned the real ways of making money online. He also learned how to build credibility and authority to his audience, and score clients soon enough.
According to Kuda, getting used to a niche is tough and not a child’s play but quitting his job to become a super affiliate and internet marketer turned his life around for the better.
Andrea is a stay-at-home mom of 3 kids. She claims that her children’s interest and passion come first and that they do not follow a curriculum at home. Being the amazing stay-at-home mom that she is, Andrea started working online in 2014 and now it serves as her source of income.
Becoming a member of Wealthy Affiliate, she learned a lot on how to create a source of income through affiliate marketing. Andrea was also provided with all the tools and resources she needs for her online home business.
In just the 11th month of her business, she was able to make almost $1000. And guess what, she earns this amount of money for each month!
Bryon has been a member of Wealthy Affiliate since 2012. It took him 2 years to be a full time online and has earned a lot of money way more than he expected.
Then, in 2017, his business and website humanproofdesigns.com earned $1.1 million in revenue. In 2018, Bryon was invited to speak at a private conference for 8 business owners and got paid $2,500.
This level of success only existed in his dreams, but by becoming a part of the Wealthy Affiliate community, all of it became possible.
Branton joined Wealthy Affiliate in 2013 and through the training provided, he was able to build himself a source of full-time income by developing a niche website of his own.
He was able to drive traffic to his website, not from social media, AdWords, or backlinks – but just through simple SEO and organic search. Through this, he was able to earn $5000 in a month. And just in December 2016, his website generated a whopping amount of $9000!
Leoemery has been in the online business industry ever since 2005. He is primarily an affiliate marketer for Wealthy Affiliate and also provides services like web design, SEO, video production, logo creation, and graphics creation for his clients.
Unlike most online marketers who fill their website with content in the form of text, he decided to take things in a slightly different direction. His content comes in the form of a video. He started in the niche of online marketing with videos as his primary method of content marketing.
A lot of his videos ranked on the first page of Google in between spots 1 and 4. People who use Youtube as a search engine would usually see Leoemery’s videos dominating the first page.
By doing video content marketing, his website has generated $50,000 in the year 2015. Then, at the end of 2017, guess how much he earned? Just a bit well over $75,000. Leoemery’s creativity got him a long way.
He offers the key takeaway that building your own online business is not a sprint, but rather, a marathon. It all takes time, focus, and you just have to keep taking one positive step towards your goals by the day.
12. Marcus WFHW
Marcus worked in a factory when he first started with Wealthy Affiliate and back then, he had very little experience when it comes to online business. Wealthy Affiliate provided him everything that he needed to succeed online, and through this, he was able to work when and where he wants, and he can now spend more time with his family.
Marcus has been with Wealthy Affiliate for more than a decade now. In a span of 10 years, he was able to get out of his 9-5 job for good, got to see his kids grow up, his health improved due to the very unhealthy lifestyle he led before due to his job at the factory, and he got to fly to Las Vegas!
He admits that he failed a lot and realizes that he will continue to do so in the future. But Marcus learned that fails are actually positive experiences waiting to happen. He always picked himself up in the process and learned from the experience.
Marcus wants you to realize that failing, even if they hurt, is an integral and inevitable part when it comes to running online businesses. It’s okay to fail. You won’t ever become successful without failing at least once.
Liz is from Melbourne, Australia, and she’s the typical superwoman you could think of. She’s a professional classical flute player and teachers students how to play the flute. Liz also has a passion for health and wellness.
On top of all that, she is the owner of an online business. She has been in the online business industry for years thanks to the right training program she found, and you guessed it right, it’s Wealthy Affiliate.
Liz says that loves being her own boss. She could never imagine herself going to another job or starting her own brick and mortar business. The creative freedom she gets from this laptop lifestyle outweighs everything else.
But of course, it’s not always easy as how the gurus say. You need to have discipline, routine, consistency, and above all else, a great training program like Wealthy Affiliate that could offer you a lot of things to learn to make your website your primary source of income.
Frank Lam Sheung works as a full-time affiliate marketer for the last 10 years with Wealthy Affiliate. For 4 times in a row, Frank has always made it to the list of people invited to Las Vegas for the Wealthy Affiliate conference. Though it seems that he never attended not even once since he lives in New Zealand, but Frank is still grateful for what he has accomplished in his life.
He offers the key takeaway that you should immerse yourself in the process, go deep into the training because it really works. When things don’t go as planned, think bigger, and greater than you are now.
Jesse joined the Wealthy Affiliate community in 2018. At first, he aimed to earn $1500 per month with his online business. 1 and a half years later, he is now making $4000 – $5500, surpassing the little goal he had when he first started.
By writing review articles of opportunities in the online marketing niche, his website is attracting a total 25,000 – 30,000 visitors per month. Jesse is looking into the possibility of email marketing in the future.
He believes that Wealthy Affiliate provided him the basics that every online marketer would need, but still, it all comes down to time, patience, and commitment.
16. Josh From Oz
Josh is from Australia and he worked full time as a house painter. When he first laid hands on his first website, he consistently made $1000 every month. This money funded his own painting business as he realized the money he makes online wasn’t sufficient.
Josh got busy with his painting business, and during this time, he didn’t have time to manage his websites. But guess what, his online earnings didn’t drop, but instead, it went up.
A year later, his online income has surpassed what he was earning with his company, and he decided to quit. He has 3 kids and is now living the laptop lifestyle. Josh still writes posts on his website, and with the support Wealthy Affiliate provides, his online business grows by the day.
Alexander is a college student from Estonia. Not being well off, he had to take on a part-time that he didn’t particularly like. He then had the realization that he has a huge interest in human psychology. This has led him to the world of online affiliate marketing. Alexander did not just find something interesting to do, but he realized that it could help him financially, as well.
When he first started with Wealthy Affiliate, he initially had the goal to make $100 a month. Then, in 2016, numbers just kept going up. He finally reached his goal and hit the $2000 mark.
Alexander is a firm believer in sticking to the basics. Don’t make the same mistake as him: searching for shortcuts. None of those really work, according to him. Stick to the basics, keep writing, and just keep on working your ass off.
Rina is a mother of two kids in Singapore. She has been with Wealthy Affiliate since 2015 and has earned a decent amount of extra income from blogging.
Rina started off earning money online by writing for Squidoo before. According to her, this opportunity was a wake-up call for her to start her own blog livingwithlowmilksupply.com
Her website now reaches more than a thousand views a day, generating more than $1000 in revenue. Some brands even approach her personally to do a sponsored product review. These milestones are something she would never even imagine of achieving in her lifetime.
She quit her full-time job and is now working 1-2 hours a day so she could now spend time with her kids.
Rina’s story isn’t unique, though. Just like everyone else, her online journey wasn’t pretty. Before joining Wealthy Affiliate, she created a website that didn’t have any conversion and failed ultimately. She became much more committed in this niche after joining Wealthy Affiliate.
Rina stuck to what she had learned from the training and wrote post after post. She eventually made everything work. Now, Rina wishes to continue making her website grow.
Scott Newkirk has been active in Wealthy Affiliate for almost 8 years now. Over the course of all these years, he learned how to build his own website and make money through affiliate marketing. Scott quit his day time job and dedicated all his time to earning a full-time income from home.
He invested in the training Wealthy Affiliate provides and has then tried to learn different ways to build multiple sources of income in order to further his business.
Scott worked 12 to 16 hours a day, 6 days a week, for almost 4 months. Then, finally, he was able to make his first sale. According to him, it felt like he won the lottery.
He offers the key takeaway: The amazing training that Wealthy Affiliate provides is one thing, but success only comes if you’re willing to put in the time and effort.
Jay has been with Wealthy Affiliate for 13 years now. What’s amazing here is that Jay is actually the first-ever Wealthy Affiliate influencer in the world. I don’t know about you and everyone else but being the first person to start something as big as Wealthy Affiliate is incredible.
He hosts live video training on a weekly basis for Premium members of Wealthy Affiliate. He seemingly has a lot of experience in the field of internet marketing, including local marketing, PPC, content development, SEO, and website development.
But forget about those, Jay mostly takes pride in his Volvo S40 bought entirely by his commission sales from Amazon. And according to him, you can also take pride in something like this with just the right amount of hard work and dedication.
Proper niche and keyword research, building up a lot of content on your website, and a positive attitude are what it takes to help you succeed in this field.
Brok joined Wealthy Affiliate in 2013. Through joining, he learned how to build an online business of his own. He started the website Full-Time Job From Home in which he writes reviews on making money online (MMO) opportunities and products or systems that enable people to earn money online.
In 2016, Brok’s website initially generated $1000 a month. Over the course of a few months, his income has increased by $3000. Crazy, right? Even Brok thought so at first!
Brok doesn’t have the intention to brag or annoy you, but he wants you to know that all your hard work can really pay off in the end as long as you lay down the right foundation of good training, and Wealthy Affiliate can provide just that!
John took some classes in college, had a regular job, and went to the Army. It’s a regular life, don’t you agree? He then learned how to squeeze money from the Internet, and soon enough, online/digital marketing replaced his day job.
Though, of course, his journey to come all the way here was not the easiest. However, because of the training he received from the Wealthy Affiliate community, he was able to work full time from home for the past 4 years and he doesn’t have any intention to work for somebody else ever again.
Alex lives in Montreal, Canada, and he has been a member of Wealthy Affiliate since October 2007. Before finding his way to Wealthy Affiliate, Alex openly admits to being a victim of getting rich quick schemes and multi-level marketing companies multiple times. He was so close to giving up, and when he encountered Wealthy Affiliate, he swore to himself that it will be his last shot.
Alex managed to build a successful online website with the help of Wealthy Affiliate, but I guess life happened for him and he became inconsistent in managing his website. It was until 2013 when he finally focused on internet marketing again.
He launched a marketing podcast called the Extra Paycheck Podcast that airs on a weekly basis. Here, Alex gets to interview successful online entrepreneurs, encouraging them to share tips, strategies, and experiences to aspiring online business owners.
This full-time online marketer has been killing the game for 13 years already, and he claims that he has learned a lot of things over the course of these years, but he learned the most important things from Wealthy Affiliate.
Kyle and Carson, the founders of Wealthy Affiliate, developed this system which enables anyone to start their own online business. Jay’s weekly webinar training videos serve as the icing on top. When you think about it, it’s like you have yourself a PHD in internet marketing already.
He suggests a simple formula to develop your own online business. It all comes down to content production. Think about it, you write 100 posts, and get this amount of traffic. Doubling your posts means doubling the amount of traffic your website receives. Yes, it’s simple but it will require you to work your butt off.
According to him, if you put in the work to do the training in order to develop your business, you will definitely make it happen. In the field of online businesses, even if you do not know what to do, try something, and see what happens. It’s a trial and error process, but he believes that it’s better to try and fail, than not try at all.
Rob is originally from Scotland but he currently lives in Thailand. He joined Wealthy Affiliate in 2009. As the clueless newbie he was, at the time, he didn’t realize that there are doors waiting to be opened by him in this niche.
Rob left, but after 4 years, he is now back in the game. This time, he now has a greater understanding of the ropes of affiliate marketing.
The second time around, he was making $25 through his sales in Amazon. He changed one of his products that pay 6% to one that pays 16%. This equates to $57 per sale. Now, he is earning at least $350!
Rob’s story is for those who gave up the first time, the second time, or maybe for the third time. It doesn’t really matter as long as you always pick yourself up. In the end, you are bound to make things work.
Andrew has been a part-time internet marketer since February 2015. Just like the others, he was used to getting ripped off and scammed before he could really start his online business for good.
He jumped from one technique to others without knowing the basics and then he realized that he wasn’t really going anywhere. Andrew then joined Wealthy Affiliate and was able to create his own website in 2010 named, Make Money Online Zone.
This website tackles about make money online (MMO) products and systems and helping aspiring online business owners in distinguishing which are scams and which are the real deals. Andrew used to fall for them, but now he warns other people of it.
Andrew wants you to know that you’re not born knowing all about online businesses and making money online. It’s all about gathering experience and most importantly, learning from it.
Derek describes himself as a 40-year-old who’s addicted to traveling around the world while looking for online success. He also takes away the burden of a desk job and a set schedule from people who wish to have freedom when it comes to their work.
From the wealth that he earns from online marketing, Derek wishes to help the less fortunate people such as the homeless and orphans, and he may even be able to set up his own foundation.
There was a point in Derek’s life wherein he was terrified of the idea of SEO like it’s something that only IT dudes deal with. Signing up with Wealthy Affiliate, he realized that it was actually simple. In addition to SEO, he was also taught about the principles of content production and how it really works to drive traffic to his website.
On his 20th month with Wealthy Affiliate, he began to see the magic and good figures come streaming in.
A key takeaway from Derek’s story is that you should never give up if you don’t see results right away. Stick with it, keep writing, keep working your ass off, keep believing in yourself, and keep helping others.
This affiliate marketer lives in Vancouver, though he is originally from Ontario. Pierre is an active Certified Training Practitioner (CTP) with The Institute for Performance and Learning.
After almost ten years in this company, they merged with another company. Unexpectedly, his position was removed and bought out, making him unemployed. This served as an opportunity for him to start his own online business wherein he would never have to rely on his fate on somebody or something else.
With the training that Wealthy Affiliate provides, Pierre was able to hit his $1000 goal revenue per month! It seems like things look good on his side, but he openly confesses that it took him many months and second-guessed himself a lot.
Pierre could have easily quit, but he didn’t. A key takeaway we could all learn from: “Hang in there, work hard and good things will come.”
Fergal has been a full-time internet marketer for 12 years now. During his newbie era in the field of internet marketing, all he cared about was being able to travel the world. Forget about the shiny cars or big houses, he just wanted to leave Ireland. He was working on his online business while he was in Asia and a few years later in North America.
This became possible when he joined Wealthy Affiliate back in 2008. Though he was the “come and go” kind of member, he became a full-time affiliate marketer in the year of 2012. Fergal took off to Thailand and rented an office on the island of Koh Lanta.
A year later, he came back to Ireland, bought a house. Fergal decided to settle down as he was soon approaching the age of 30. Finally, he rented another office space just outside Galway City.
Now, he focuses on product creation and affiliate marketing through email. He will soon be starting on affiliate SEO. His email list has garnered a total of 15,000 active subscribers, as of now.
Wendy lived a regular life as possible. After high school, she went to college even if she had no idea what she really wanted to do with her life. 5 years later, she had a bachelor’s degree, went from job to job here and there. And guess what? She has nothing that she wants to do for the rest of her life.
Being depressed, one day she just realized that she wants to do something that she loves. So, she went to the Internet and searched for ways on how to make money online. Just like a prayer, she received an answer. Only, it wasn’t from God but it was from Wealthy Affiliate.
Wendy decided that this program looks legit and seemed real. She gave it a chance. A year later, she’s living the dream of making a consistent source of income online and she claims that she wouldn’t be where she is now if it weren’t for Wealthy Affiliate.
James joined Wealthy Affiliate when he was still a student. Now, you may be thinking: “Yeah, sure. Nothing new about that. A lot of students also dive into the field of online marketing.” True, but you see, James became a member when he was just 13 years old, and a Premium member at that! He’s still a student now, and this just shows that age is not a limit.
After arriving at Wealthy Affiliate and completing his first free course, James was convinced that it was something he would love to do! But there’s just one problem, how is a 13-year-old going to ask his parents for money to sign up for a program that teaches people how to make money online? The $19 discount saved James’ ass at the time.
He dived into the niche of gaming since it was his passion even though it is one of the most aggressive and competitive niches out there. But because of school, James began to neglect his site and posted little to no content. There was a time when he thought of considering the website, but he is so glad that he didn’t.
James is earning passive income with his site gaining over 1000 organic visits a day, even from posts that he did ages ago.
A key takeaway from James’ story is that even if time gets rough, giving up is never an option. What you reap is what you sow. It will all pay off in the future. It doesn’t matter if you’re too young or too old. What matters is you nurture your mindset and work your ass off.
Jackie has been with Wealthy Affiliate since April 2013. According to her, her journey as an online marketer hasn’t been a breeze most of the time. There were moments when she wanted to give up.
Fortunately, she just loves what she does. She started out as a newbie just like anyone else and was burdened with the task of learning a whole new set of skills. Of course, it’s still an ongoing process for Jackie.
She is hoping to receive an invitation from Kyle and Carson to the Las Vegas conference soon. Jackie is also looking into the launch of her website soon.
Jackie can all teach us that setbacks will pop up along the way, but that doesn’t mean you will already give up when you’re not even halfway there. Just keep chasing your chance to lead a better life.
Things don’t always go as planned. That was the case with Craig when he signed up with another program for affiliate marketing. He, later on, he joined Wealthy Affiliate in the hopes that maybe this time, it could work out. Thankfully, it did.
Craig, though British, lives in Malaysia with his Filipina wife and son. He first came to South East Asia back in 2009 and traveled around before he decided to settle in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. His job as an online marketer gave him the opportunity to travel, and he claims that he is so fortunate for this.
It took Craig at least 8 months to earn $150 from the traffic his website receives. A month later, he surpassed this milestone and from $150 the previous month, he then earned a total of $364.
The system that Wealthy Affiliate provides is proven, and Craig’s income report proves time and time again that it works. If it worked for him, it will work out for you too!
Robert spent the majority of his professional career in the video game industry as quality assurance and a customer service manager. He also took part in several published games as a video game producer. On top of these, he has a part-time business in New Jersey for eBay.
Being the amazing man that Robert is, he is also looking for a new career path since he likes to learn and experience new things. It just so happens that he found making money online fun and rewarding.
Robert built his own website based on the education content that Wealthy Affiliate provided. He received a lot of resources and training about website creation, SEO, niche ideas, writing content, keyword research. For Robert, you couldn’t find the same content elsewhere for a lower cost. This has got to be the real deal.
Robert leaves the following message: “Knowledge is power and there is a lot of knowledgeable power that can be learned here if you just give yourself the opportunity to learn it and put it into practice.”
Tim admits that he is not a guru in this niche. He is just a guy from Australia who went from working in construction to making 6 figures per year all made possible through affiliate marketing.
Tim was able to achieve this level of success in the field of online businesses with his belief that you can achieve anything as long as you set your mind to it, and if you commit a hundred percent of yourself in what you do.
By following the Wealthy Affiliate training, utilizing the available resources, Tim can now work when he wants, where he wants to, and how he wants it to be.
One key takeaway that Tim offers: “The ONLY person standing between you and your goals, is you. And when you know this, I mean really know this, you will know that you have the power to choose how your story plays out.”
I hope this “Wealthy Affiliate Success Stories” post inspired you into taking the risk to build your online business. Just like them, you can also experience all the success in life if you just put your mind to it. So, what’s it going to be? It’s your call.
