Wealthy Affiliate is a popular affiliate marketing training platform.
By my calculations, Wealthy Affiliate earned approximately $10,000,000 in revenue in 2019.
Yes, that’s 10 million dollars!
How did I come up with that number?
First I noticed that everyone who signs up for a free WA account automatically “follows” one of the owners (Kyle).
So I checked how many followers Kyle had on two occasions, exactly one week apart.
That works out to 5,303 new members in one week.
The WA affiliates page tells us how many of those folks are likely to sign up for a Premium account…
So that’s about 636 new Premium members each week.
Or 90 every day.
The same page tells us the average affiliate commission per sale…
According to WA, affiliates are paid 22-45% of every sale.
Let’s say the average is 40%.
That would put the lifetime value of each sale at about $300.
90 sales per day = $27,000.
WA’s monthly revenue is therefore $821,250.
Or $9.85 MILLION per year!
Keep in mind:
- 40% might be too high an average. Meaning each sale could be worth more than $300.
- I’ve only counted revenue from memberships. WA also generates $ in other ways (eg domain registrations).
Given that, I feel confident saying that Wealthy Affiliate generated at least $10 million in revenue in 2019.
