Welcome and thank you for reading my article on what is Wealthy Affiliate and what is an affiliate program.
In these pandemic times, we are millions of people in home confinement who wonder what we could do to pass the time.
We do not know how long we will be confined or whether we will find the same job at the end of the confinement.
Why then not try to make the dream that we all have of having our own business come true and finally work for ourselves.
Let’s start by asking ourselves what is Wealthy Affiliate?

WHAT IS AN AFFILIATE PROGRAM?
Affiliate marketing is a program between a seller/advertiser and an affiliate. This concept of sale is characterized by a commission based on success which is paid by the seller. The amount of the commission is agreed between the seller and his partner.
Basically an affiliate program allows a business to receive sales generated by someone promoting products in return for a% commission.
The operating principles of an affiliate program are more or less the same from one company to another, but consultant and internet marketer explains it in a picture here.
1- The affiliate (you) registers on the site of a merchant who offers a program like Wealthy Affiliate Program, Yahoo Affiliate Program, Rakuten Program, etc.
2- As an affiliate, you will receive a unique code that lets the merchant know that the traffic is coming from you. You place this link on your site (a banner, a text link, etc.)
3- A person visits your site and clicks on one of your affiliate links
4- A “cookie” is installed on his computer.
5- He buys on the merchant’s site
6- When paying, the merchant looks at the information available in the “cookie” (witness file)
7- If the merchant finds information related to an affiliate, he takes note of it and enters the amount of commission. Note: the amount of commissions can be different from one program to another (in percentage or fixed) or according to the product.
8- The merchant enters the commissions generated by the affiliate in a report. The affiliate can see the traffic they are sending to merchants.
9- The merchant sends the amount of commissions generated to the affiliate at the end of each month. Usually via PayPal, bank transfer, or check.
HOW DO YOU FIND AFFILIATE PROGRAMS?
In May 2019, after almost 2 years of development, we officially launched the affiliate program platform here at Wealthy Affiliate.
This is something that we have wanted for a while now and we are delighted to finally make it available to you!
Conventionally, it has been difficult to find affiliate programs.
They’re spread all over the Internet and to find affiliate programs, you usually need to do a Google search, or rely on a search on multiple affiliate networks to find a program that works for you.
So we decided to create an environment that would allow affiliates to research and find relevant affiliate programs, give them away to comment or criticize the particular affiliate programs they are involved in, and track and manage the affiliate’s list of programs they are interested in or involved in one place.
Wealthy Affiliate is the most comprehensive platform for educating and equipping affiliate marketers for online success, but the “affiliate program” element has been completely separated from the platform and community here. Till today.
PRESENTATION OF THE AFFILIATE PROGRAMS PLATFORM.
We have never seen an affiliate search tool that was useful, or that actually had decent quality affiliate programs within them. Our goal with this platform will be to reward high quality and actively managed programs and to limit exposure to programs of lower quality or that do not have active support.
There are nearly 1.8 million aspiring and successful affiliate resellers who have joined WA since 2005, and these numbers are growing at a faster rate than ever. We want to offer affiliates every opportunity possible while maximizing efficiency in all aspects of their business.
Finding and managing the affiliate programs you are part of has never been easier, and as this platform evolves, I think you will be very excited to see what new opportunities this will represent for you. as an affiliate.
THE RESEARCH ELEMENT
The search aspect has been one of our main objectives, because we want to help users find affiliate programs efficiently, but also be able to do so based on filters and keywords that meet their search criteria. You will be able to search for programs based on a number of different filters.
-Country availability is available to you as an affiliate in your country.
-Automatic approval of commissions.
-Commission% / $.
You can manage them by clicking on the Filter tab, as shown below.
As for your actual research, you can research what you like. If you want to research affiliate programs related to “golf”, you can most certainly.
If you want, you can also organize and search by category only. If you click on “All” with the down arrow to the left of the search bar, you will be able to filter and display only the programs in certain categories.
These are categories that will evolve over time as there will be more affiliate programs added, there are currently almost 10,000 affiliate programs included in the research.
TRACK AND MANAGE YOUR PROGRAMS.
One of the exciting things about the platform is that you will be able to follow affiliate programs and organize them the way you want. Often when you are building your authority websites, you are joining many affiliate programs, in many categories.
You will be able to manage all of your affiliate programs from the platform and categorize how you see fit. You can also follow the programs, so when there are discussions, reviews, or updates related to that particular program, you will be notified about them.
These features will keep your affiliate campaigns much more organized and keep you informed of the respective affiliate programs that you choose to follow.
To follow a program, simply click on the Follow button or on the STAR icon in the upper right corner of any list.
By clicking, you will have the possibility to organize the program in a “No category” group, to choose an existing category for the group, or to create a completely new category.
By doing this, you will be able to access all of the affiliate programs in your store by clicking on the STAR icon in the search bar (as shown below)
You can also use the Follow function to store future ideas. There are a lot of programs available in the search, so while you’re browsing, you’re probably going to find potential niches or promotional ideas for future campaigns.
We recommend that you follow all the programs with which you are affiliated and which interests you.
Affiliate programs will grow over time, technology and the ability of affiliate programs/managers to communicate will continue to improve, the “resources” available to you as an affiliate through various programs and niches will evolve, and help and connectivity with active affiliate directors who take part in their programs will be the focus of this program in the future.
So much for Wealthy Affiliate and the affiliate program. If you have any questions you want to send me or write to me below and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
