What is Affiliate Marketing?

Affiliate Marketing simply is a way of making money by promoting other people’s products. You will receive a commission when people click on your referral link and buy products.

Products can be physical or virtual. One of the largest platforms in the world will be

Click bank will be another platform having tons of products for you to choose!

Sign up can be just a minute and anywhere that you can access the internet than you can call yourself an affiliate. When people and traffic arrive at your website and buy products; you get commission depends on which platform you are in.

As there are so many products using the affiliate marketing technique, you can see affiliate from all kinds of platforms from travel like, Agoda… you name it!

What are the pros of affiliate marketing?

  1. Another source of income: When you have time, and also having skills, you may generate extra incomes for yourself.  (You do have to invest your time, and no guarantee to make big money)
  2. Low-Cost business: That means you have to input lots of your time! Signing up is easy but some will review your website (if you have one and not all the affiliate platforms accept you as a partner. If your website doesn’t have any traffic or with low traffic, the chance is they will reject you from being a partner with them)!
  3. Don’t have to be a Professional: Practice will help you make to the top! You can try and test any combination of marketing skills and techniques in order building your own successful patterns.
  4. Freedom: With your own flexibility, you can simply work in everywhere, anytime you want. You get to leverage your time as while you are sleeping, the other part of the earth may be visiting your website, making money while you are sleeping!
  5. Trouble-free: Promotion of the products or services are what you have to do! Other than that, those are not your business!


What are the cons of affiliate marketing? 

  1. Highly competitive: NO WAY you can imagine how many people you are competing with! Traffic might not equal to sales, not to mention if there is no traffic. Pay traffic may be an option depends on the situation. As everyone is aiming for free stuff, most of us aim at the ranking of Google! But as I mentioned previously, your opportunity cost is your time and chance of doing other stuff!
  2. You are not the owners controlling the products: You are like the agency who is referring products to people just like the real estate broker. Different is you are working with the help of technology, they are doing the stuff in the old way.
  3. Time-consuming: You cannot imagine how much time you have to spend per day, week or month with consistent working on something you might not get result on. Don’t believe in someone who said making a huge amount of money after how many days or like a flash of your eyes. Therefore persistent is so important!
  4. Not guarantee: If you did not prepare yourself within this industry, there will be a huge rebound in your feeling. As this is out of your expectation and somehow if you run into difficulty with money, it will get worse! Therefore, it is not suitable for everyone!


What is Wealthy Affiliate?

Wealthy Affiliate basically is a platform to help people building website with the corporation with WordPress and help people to become a successful affiliate marketer. Kyle and Carson began helping since 2005 with an initiative to help other people succeed online. That is the reason behind the Wealthy Affiliate! With 14 years of experience, they help 1.5 million internet entrepreneur, within 193 countries.


Who am I and how did I end up in Wealthy Affiliate?

I am nobody but like you, a normal person who struggles in life. This person, from Hong Kong, trying to create bonding with people by doing what he likes from coffee, photographing, and understand cultures behind and deep under people’s mind! There is a full story about me in “ABOUT IMCIANs“. My life is amazing and I would like to let you guys know, I will experience more! This is the lifestyle I want to be – working in front of the laptop and travelling all around the world visiting all the unique cafe and experience first-hand culture shock through interaction with the local people! I started affiliate marketing last year, around June 2018. At that time, I knew nothing about online marketing. My friend introduced me to this platform as he paid for the platform already. I was just using this platform building my own website. Therefore, I believe some people may not aim at working in affiliate marketing rather they want to build a website only.

Wealthy Affiliate includes all in one platform for training in affiliate and as an online marketer, Jaaxy and WordPress with 49USD$ to 29.92USD per month depending on the plan you are going to choose.

Below is the table showing what functions you will get with the Premium membership with WA.



If you are buying it alone with Jaaxy, the only option you have is the free, pro or enterprise account!


Therefore, you can one more choice to choose from when using the Wealthy Affiliate Premium. Moreover, the functions of Jaaxy with Wealthy Affiliate Premium is so close to what Jaaxy is providing in their Pro membership.


When it comes into WordPress, It is much more amazing than just starting with the eCommerce account with WordPress. It costs around 46USD per month of using the eCommerce account with WordPress, with the extra functions of Integrations with top shipping carriers, eCommerce Marketing Tools and Unlimited Products or Services. Other than that, Wealthy Affiliate Premium has the same function as the eCommerce account. But you are paying for only 29.92 USD per month with three platforms all in one. I will say that is the cool part while having Wealthy Affiliate Premium.

What do I like about Wealthy Affiliate?

  1. free membership: Try it first and experience, if it fits just go on. If not, you only spend a week with courses you can learn –> meaning you lose nothing!
  2. Jaaxy: I get to know which keyword will easily bring me to the first page of google and it is easy to use (based on my own habit) with the help of google trend (free stuff you can use to target keywords and help in SEO).
  3.  Credit system: My most flavor part as this is having the same idea as me! It reminds the beauty of human nature, giving and receiving from a book called the Karmic Management by Geshe MichaelThe book is really inspiring that I will have another article discussing this. One point that is will important from this book is that if you want to success, you have to give people to success first. Then you will succeed!  This is absolutely true while doing affiliate marketing and the Credit system is applying the rules!
  4. Holding lots of website in an account: if you are sharing with your partners! Do you still think it cost a lot? like paying around 15 dollars for the account and you can access all the service in this platform! Acceptable right!
  5. Training System: Is a step by step process that what I believe it helps me because there is no way you can build the tower one night! Small steps are easy to achieve daily and it really depends how eager to achieve goals you want!
  6. Tons of Leaders and helpers: They are here to give it back to the community and you can also build your own personal branding amount them!

What I think they should improve! Or things to consider?

  1. Advanced training not enough: For marketers who have been in the field for some time, they need advice and more importantly people they can ask for as to some levels, it is all by yourself and you have to figure it out how to make things working for you!
  2. The comparison of Wix and WordPress: If you are aiming for building a fancy website, I will suggest using Wix instead of WordPress. Wix is easy to use with fancy buttons and pictures you can use! Wix is a good choice as it takes less amount of time for you adapting to a new platform! For my own experience, 15-20 minutes!


Therefore, before you make any decision, please think and consider all the features, and coming up the decision of buying! If you think it is what you want: Congratulations! WE CAN WORK TOGETHER! 

IF NOT, IS FINE! I am here to let you know that not all opportunities are suitable for everyone!

Who Should Sign Up For Wealthy Affiliate?

My review is to show you facts about Wealthy Affiliate and what my experience while using the service! However, do research and experience yourself! After you have tried it yourself, you will know whether is the thing you are looking for! Moreover, is completely free and no credit card required!

It really fits me, as I am still new in this industry! Therefore, a guide for me is a must! For experienced marketers, they can use it and building networks of their own platforms, which is also great!

Don’t get it wrong that it is a get-rich-quick strategy! THIS IS NOT THE CASE!!

It takes a long time to build the empire from starting your own website, that is a legitimate online business. At least, you need a realistic plan for yourself when you considering participating in this industry; in this Wealthy Affiliate platform!

Videos and training with Bootcamp are all here in Wealthy Affiliate. This all in on platform will help in website build up, hosting, back up and so on just is what I mentioned on top! Switching platforms, or like files everywhere is not what we wanna see! It takes a long time to find those files out just like when you are in this industry, you want everything with you in the same platform!

Who Should NOT Sign Up For Wealthy Affiliate?

Please stay away if you are not mentally prepared in this industry! Why will I say so? Because personally, I have experienced before! WE THINK WE ARE READY! but actually, we are not! That is why a free membership is here providing a chance to ask yourself, no matter what is going to happen, if you overcome it? I don’t know how and why you arrived here, reading my review! My advice is that what success means to you and by what ways? This is not the only platform or the only way you can achieve your own definition of success but truly is for someone, who has courage, with determination starting and chasing his lifestyle that they want.

Therefore, because is so important, I have to restate it all the time! Please think and consider all the features, before coming up the decision of buying! You cannot imagine how much time you have to spend in front of your screen, and how nervous we are while doing this! The thing I can tell you is I am excited about what I am doing! 

Giving away is also important! That is why asking questions in the platform is a must! If you have not prepared your mind, you are just wasting your time! Don’t try the free membership! I will stop you from doing it as somehow before you succeed the lifestyle is not you think it is! You will struggle for may be more than three years! Please think!

Try the free membership first before any real decisions you are going to make!
