How much money does Wealthy Affiliate make?

Wealthy Affiliate logo

Wealthy Affiliate is a popular affiliate marketing training platform.

(read my in-depth Wealthy Affiliate review here)

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.

1,488,169 followers one week
1,494,172 followers exactly a week later

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…

The WA affiliate page says that 12% of free members upgrade to Premium

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…

Average commission is $121 per sign up

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.
