Affiliate Marketing Course for Beginners

Looking for the most comprehensive affiliate marketing course to jump-start your online business? I’ve been a member of Wealthy Affiliate for over six years and I’m happy to recommend their program. With hundreds of lessons, it's suitable for all levels of experience from beginners to advanced. 

There’s a no obligation free trial for the first 10 lessons so I encourage you to give it a try. There’s also access to the community provided tutorials and videos including over 100 of mine.

This is not a “pay now and ask for a refund” type of trial. They don’t ask for your credit card or PayPal details unless you decide to upgrade to the premium membership. Upgrading is entirely up to you, it gives you access to several more levels of training and more interaction with the international community. 

As a member of Wealthy Affiliate you’ll learn how to build a website and become an affiliate marketer. They’ll even provide you with a free website which you can use while you’re learning. Use the widget below to see if your chosen website name is available.

  1. Good Day Marion…

    Based on the training I find here on your site, plus knowing you, I believe that your recommendation for the Wealthy Affiliate program makes a lot of sense for current or aspiring online marketers. That membership site has a ton of good training and other useful content.

    I am a member of several groups and training sites, and one is Wealthy Affiliate. It just makes sense for me, because I save in costs when I compare individual tools, training, and services costs to what I get with this site. I am saving lots of money by spending a little…

    Wealthy Affiliate has a lot to offer. The initial no cost, no credit card 7 day trial is one of the best offers I have seen in the market, and once you have had a chance to see what all is in there, THEN you can upgrade for a reasonable monthly subscription price. I have been there for 2 years, 3 months now…

    What I like even better is the chance you have to really save big with that membership site. Once a year they do a Black Friday sale, and you can bring your costs per month down by 50% (but you do have to pay the entire year in one go), and when you think about the free hosting, the training, the forum, the live chat, the advice…Easy decision to stay and pay!


    • Thanks for the reminder about the Black Friday special offer Dave. It’s a no-brainer and I took advantage of it myself as soon as I could.

  2. Hi Marion,

    I think it’s great that you offer this training and to be able to watch online videos like this for free is nothing short of amazing. When I signed up with Google Sniper I had nothing like this.

    This is probably why I failed. Without support I didn’t know which direction to take. I now understand how important it is to have training like this, whether it is online courses or video content.

    Affiliate marketing has been around for a few years but I heard that it is now even more popular than ever. I look forward to checking out some of your training videos.

  3. Hi Marion,

    I am a Wealthy Affiliate Member, too, and looking back the last year and how much I have learned is still filling me with awe and gratitude. WA has opened a huge pathway for me. I knew it after only 3 days of the free trial and signed up for the premium membership right away. I was mainly interested in learning how to handle websites – and you and many others were corner stones in my learning.

    I highly recommend to join the community to people who want to become auto-sufficient. The support is unprecedented – from the support team AND from your fellow community members – and the possibility to learn too. After one year of membership I now have my first client for whom I am building a website. HURRAY!

  4. Hi Marion,
    I am a Wealthy Affiliate member and I still find it amazing that we can start for free! This is so unusual as most programs make you pay a large amount upfront or hit you with never ending upgrades as you go that end up costing many thousands of dollars.

    I knew nothing about online business before joining Wealthy Affiliate. I was able to build a website shortly after signing up and then moved right on to signing up with affiliates. After a few months I was making sales! It was amazing. I can’t recommend Wealthy Affiliate highly enough.

    • Hi Jessica,
      There are so many programs out there that make you think that their initial offer is all you need and then they tell you that you need to buy the upsell to make the program work. With Wealthy Affiliate you know what the ongoing cost is going to be without any upsells at all. It’s a very reasonable fee for all the lessons that are included. The only optional extra is for a domain name which you can buy from any domain name registrar (including Wealthy Affiliate).
      I’ll look out for you in the members area.
