For those of you who wonder if we can earn a lot of many with affiliate marketing, here’s a post that will convinced you.
I actually know several people who are successful with affiliate marketing, and most of them are on a platform called Wealthy Affiliate. That’s the reason why I entitled this post “10 Wealthy Affiliate success stories” because I’m talking to you about 10 of them.
To me they are proof that you can be successful with affiliate marketing, to the point that you can quit your job eventually. Because that’s what most of them did.
Here they are…
1. Eric – A Firefighter from Texas Making Over $4,000 A Month After Only A Year
This guy result is pretty amazing, that’s why I decided to put him first.
His name is Eric, and he is a firefighter from South Texas. He joined WA in January 2017. And in January 2018, he was already making it to the annual Wealthy Affiliate conference in Las Vegas, with a revenue of over $4,000 a month.
So that’s pretty impressive. Most people reach that level after about 18 months. He did in 12. So he’s proof that, anything is possible. And he simply made it through a website he built following WA’s training.
You can see him here, in the picture below, between Kyle and Carson (the two Wealthy Affiliate co-founders) in Vegas.
2. Dylan – A Guy Who Could Build A 6 Figure Website
Dylan is guy who struggles at first, before he finally figured out a way to start making it online.
Dylan joined WA in August 2015. He struggled at first. He didn’t make a dime in his first year. But then things started rolling for him.
What he suggests now, to those who are struggling like he did in the beginning, it’s to follow the training in WA. Write a lot of review posts and “best of” posts. That’s the strategy that he has adopted – and he is really successful at it.
For those inside of WA, who want to dig more on how he is doing it in more details, they can read a training he created about it, which can be found in his profile: How To Create a 6 Figure Website
In it, he’s giving the exact strategy that he is using to earn himself an average of $1,200 a week (around $5,000 a month).
3. Eddy – Making $9,465 Even in His Lowest Month
Eddy is another successful WA members. He joined WA in 2007 and he is doing it full time as a living.
In this post below, he is mentioning how February 2018 was not really a good month for him because the traffic flow was not as good as the other months. But still, his website earned him $9,465 that month.
So you can imagine that the other months are higher than that.
Eddy is sharing how he could do it through another post that he called his cheat sheet, where he gives you in details the process on:
- How he found a goal and pick a niche for his business
- How he created his website
- The way he writes his content
- How he gets visitors to his site
- And how he finally makes money through it
4. Grace – Getting Over 78K Visitors After 18 Months
There are not only men who are successful in this business, women like Grace are getting there too.
Grace joined WA in September 2016. She doesn’t talk much about the kind of money she’s making. But with the traffic she’s getting and the referrals she has, she is making some, that’s for sure.
In one of her posts in WA she mentioned how her website, after 18 month of efforts, is getting over 78K visitors.
Here’s a WA referrals:
5. Nathaniell – Quit His Job After 18 Months into It
Nathaniell started internet marketing while he was living in China. He made his first sale after following Wealthy Affiliate training, which he joined in June 2010.
He quit his job in China after 18 months and moved back to United States to work from home.
Nathaniel is a good example of a guy who never gave up, even if it took him a little while before seeing a consistent coming income from his online efforts.
Now, he is doing it from home, not having to go to work on a regular job for anyone else anymore.
You may probably have seen one of his site online, onemorecupof-coffee.com.
Nathaniell is pretty active inside Wealthy Affiliate. He can often be seen in chat where he’s helping anyone who needs help.
That’s one of the cool thing in WA, you can receive tips and advice from gals and guys like him who are finally making it.
6. Dom – Building A 7 Figures Income
Dom joined WA in August 2012 to look for a way to make money online. But he had great doubts in the beginning that he could personally make it.
But despite all that, he never gave up. And in only 5 years, he has built himself a 7 figures income business (around $1,067,286 a year).
His main business is building websites and selling them from his website. So, anyone who wants to buy an already made website, can go see him. He even do them on demand.
So he’s using the knowledge he gained through WA’s training to build websites and then sell them to people who prefer to buy an already made website instead of building it themselves from scratch.
He tried selling them from Alexa, but he ended up having more success selling them from his own website.
7. Veronica – Doing It Full Time Since 2012
To balance things up a little, since there are more guys than gals here, I’m putting one more woman on the list: Veronica.
She’s been with WA since November 2007. It’s hard to say when exactly she started to do it full time, but going through all of her posts inside WA, I could see that, in 2012. she was doing it full time.
I never really chat with her like I did a couple of times with Nathaniell, but I know she is still an active WA member. Her rank factor in orange of 219, is a good indicator of that. The lower number means, the more active you are within Wealthy Affiliate.
I know by experience that, to maintain a number of about 200, you need to regularly participate within WA community. Otherwise that number will increase fast.
8. Tim – Making It After Three Years
Tim is a good example of a guy who is making it after only 3 years within WA. He is doing it full time. He joined in October 2015, and in January 2018, he made it to the yearly WA affiliate conference in Vegas.
You may have seen his website many times on Google first page results, affiliateunguru.com.
One tip Tim is giving to those who are just starting, is to stop focusing on making money, and start focusing on creating value for others through your website instead.
That’s one of the advice that successful internet marketers like Eben Pagan is also preaching.
The money will come. But only in exchange of value.
9. Vitaliy – Full Time Online Marketer
Vitaliy is also another full time internet marketer. But he’s been with WA for a much longer time. He joined back in September 2007.
He made WA Vegas for the fourth time in January 2018. Vitaliy is not a guy who talk much about how much he is making. And I couldn’t see exactly when he finally was making it full time.
I can probably ask him without specifying the amount he was making, because I know he is particularly private about that. And it’s his right. But the important thing is that, he know does.
And all these WA members I have shown you so far, are great examples for me that, this thing work if you make it work. It works if you put the effort and stick to the training.
10. Leo – Took Him 18 Months To Do It Full Time
I wrote a post in WA in March 2018 entitled “How Many Of You Are Finally Making It Full Time?” And one WA member, Leo (username leoemery), had responded to it, saying that he’s been making it full time since 2005. It took him 18 months to get there.
18 months seem to be a number where a lot of online marketers finally could start doing it full time. Almost a year and a half after starting a new website.
When I told Leo, “I guess you already knew what niche you were going into and keep working on it…” He gave me for answer, “That and I also had a great mentor.“
I personally don’t have a mentor. But I’m using Kyle as one in WA, following his Bootcamp training and doing all the tasks he recommend to do to the best of my ability.
It’s like the guy from P90X., Tony Horton says inside his training videos, “Do your best and forget the rest!”
What About Your Story?
Are you on your way to make it too? Or would you wish to be? What is preventing you to be?
Wealthy Affiliate is probably not for everyone. But it’s certainly is for people like we just saw who had a goal of making a revenue online that would be enough to quit their job.
That’s the goal I personally have and I’m steadily getting there. What about you? Is that one of your goal too? All these stories are proof that it can be accomplished by normal regular people if they put their heart into it and have the right training!
For some it took 12 months, for others it took 18, and still for another group it was longer. But they all got there eventually because they didn’t give up.
