Are you needing a positive change in your work life? Would you prefer to work for yourself in a home-based business? Or maybe you dream of travelling and having a mobile business?
This is perfect for a stay at home parent. Or like myself, giving me the security we needed for retirement. There are unlimited scenarios that could use an added income, right?
Wealthy Affiliate offers you a unique opportunity to achieve your dreams with affiliate marketing. The training you’ll receive will help you towards financial freedom so that you can pursue the lifestyle you deserve.
Imagine the things you could accomplish with a passive income. Sure, there’s work to be done upfront, but then, with some maintenance, your income continues to come in, even when you sleep. Doesn’t that sound incredible!!
Now there are usually three things that separate the successful from those who consistently fail.
- The training they receive
- The tools they use
- The support they have
If you are lacking in any of these areas, you are setting yourself up for failure. So does Wealthy Affiliate deliver in all these areas? You bet they do!
Let me break down who they are, what they offer and then you decide. I think you’re really going to be impressed!
But first, let’s look at what affiliate marketing is, OK?
What is Affiliate Marketing?
To put it simply, affiliate marketing is all about “selling other people’s stuff”, LOL.
No really, it’s true. You sell other people’s products or services and receive a commission when you do.
As a beginner, it can sound a little intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be. It’s pretty simple at its core.
One of my favourite definitions comes from a very successful marketer himself, Pat Flynn. He says…
“…affiliate marketing is the process of earning a commission by promoting other people’s (or company’s) products. You find a product you like, promote it to others, and earn a piece of the profit for each sale that you make.”
So basically, your business would be centred around a specific topic, and your audience is those interested in that topic.
As you provide support for their questions and concerns, you’ll find products or services that could help them.
These are the products you recommend to them. And when they purchase these products, you are rewarded with a commission by the product owner or creator.
Here’s an image that might help as well…
Now sometimes there’s an affiliate network tossed in there. For instance, platforms like Clickbank or MaxBounty host many products and services on one platform.
If you choose one of those items from a platform like these, it’s the platform that pays you instead of the product owner.
Affiliate commissions can run anywhere from 2% to 75% or more.
A site like Amazon is at the lower end. They call their commissions “advertising fees”, and the rates range from 1% to 10%.
Whereas some digital products (software, ebooks, and such) from sites like Clickbank can reach as high as 90%. On average they range at about 50%.
Advertisers (product owners) love affiliate marketing because it provides them with free advertising.
They never have to pay out fees unless they’ve received a paying customer.
It’s up to the publisher (you) to create inviting promotions to attract your customers. And it’s easier than you think!
So really, it’s a win-win for everyone.
Wealthy Affiliate – The Company
Wealthy Affiliate is an all-in-one platform dedicated to online entrepreneurs, specifically affiliate marketers. They have helped many people achieve successful passive incomes.
And despite all the internet changes over the years, they are determined to remain up-to-date. You never have to worry about outdated training. You’ll always have updated strategies and techniques to stay ahead of your competitors.
There are reviews out there that say otherwise, but it’s simply not true!
I have been a member since 2011, and I can honestly say it’s being continually updated, improved upon, added to, and growing!!
Kyle Loudon and Carson Lim, the founders of the company, started this website in 2005 as a keyword list membership for affiliate marketers.
And did you know that the $359 per year they charged back in 2005 is the same price they charge today? It’s never gone up!!
They would offer new lists each week, and people loved it. Then their members started asking for more…
- A way to communicate with Kyle or Carson for personal help.
- Training on how to build online businesses.
- Website building and hosting services.
- A keyword research tool, among others.
- A way to contact other members and to network.
- And more, and more.
Now, 15 years later, they have 25 employees and have over 1.4 MILLION members worldwide. They offer training on the proper techniques to create your online business, as well as offer you all the tools and support to succeed.
You don’t need any previous knowledge. It’s all step by step and easy to follow.
In my opinion, it’s THE PLACE TO BE for affiliate marketers. The community is one of a kind, unmatched anywhere else on the internet. You can ask for and get support from some of the world’s most successful marketers, any time you wish.
Is Wealthy Affiliate perfect? No, nothing is! But the owners are committed to improving it all the time. They’re “bent” on providing their members with the best they can provide for their success.
To me, that speaks volumes.
So let’s start breaking it down…..
Wealthy Affiliate In A Nutshell
Using this exact 4-step process, you are given everything you need to succeed. You will be able to create your business in any niche you choose. It isn’t complicated but will take a bit of hard work, commitment, and patience on your part.
This isn’t a get-rich-quick scheme. It’s a proven method to build your business from scratch and scale it as large as you wish.
Did you know that there’s never been a better time to be an affiliate? In this age of online consumerism, there are millions of products and services that you can promote as an affiliate, and earn revenue. There’s no better time to start with Wealthy Affiliate.
Watch this great, quick, video about Wealthy Affiliate, and all they offer. Then keep on reading as I break it down some more for you.
Remember previously, when I said you need training, tools, and support…
The Training is Excellent
Any successful business starts with an idea. What is your passion? What are your interests? This is the starting point of Wealthy Affiliate training.
You don’t need experience. You don’t need a product.
Just a passion, or even a hobby, and they will help you turn it into a profitable business. How, you ask? With well-thought-out, engaging, and effective training.
Wealthy Affiliate has many methods of teaching to suit all types of learning styles. They provide:
- Two certification courses – Online Entrepreneur and Bootcamp
- Live weekly webinars – 52 task-oriented training classes per year
- Video tutorials
- Text tutorials
- Instant community chat
#1: Online Entrepreneur Certification Course
This is the recommended course…
The hands-on training starts immediately, even for the Starter Member, who joins for free. The Starter Member has access to Level 1, with 28 action steps that cover everything needed to get your business up and running.
For Premium Members, there are 4 additional certification levels, with 140 additional lessons, to help you create maximum success for your business.
Within every training module, there’s a comment section for asking questions and coaching.
You’ll find that there’s always an expert within the community who’s available to offer support.
The best part of Wealthy Affiliate is the “earn while you learn” motto. You actually start building your business online while taking your education.
They have found that the best way to learn is to use this “applied knowledge” approach.
The courses are all action based to keep you engaged. Each lesson has the text tutorial as well as a video for your over-the-shoulder experience.
#2: Affiliate Bootcamp
This course is for those who are interested in promoting Wealthy Affiliate. But many members will take this just to get more in-depth training!
This course has 7 levels and a total of 226 actionable lessons. If you start as a free starter member, you get access to phase 1 with 30 lessons.
Though designed to promote Wealthy Affiliate, its lessons can be applied to any niche.
These classrooms are currently divided up into 8 categories and have hundreds of videos, tutorials, courses and webinars in each.
As a free starter member, you have access to “Getting Started” and “WA Affiliate Program”.
What’s great is that our community experts are continually adding more training within these classrooms for your further interest and training.
Side Note: I believe some of the older training (that’s still useful), by previous members, is what other reviewers are calling “outdated”.
#4: Live Weekly Webinars
Each Friday, like clockwork, Jay offers a variety of training sessions in a live webinar. Not only are these great for additional training, but Jay is also funny, easy to listen to, and welcomes all your questions and comments.
These webinars are all recorded, so if you miss it live, you can watch the recording at your leisure.
How many recordings are there? Well, let’s see… Jay started this regularly in October of 2012. So that’s… TONS! lol
#5: Instant Community Chat
This is the most unique platform I’ve ever seen online. It’s not your typical forum style like you may see on other platforms.
This is “live”
If you ever need a quick answer to any question, need feedback, or just want to chat with other entrepreneurs, this is where you go. It’s active 24/7.
This is also another great way to pick up tips and tricks of the trade.
You’ll find a whole range of experienced people online at any given time. Because this is a global membership, there’s someone online at all hours of the day and night.
So if you’re up and working on your site at 3:00 a.m., you can still reach a fellow member from around the world.
What I appreciate is the amount of our truly successful business owners who are always willing to help out.
And throughout Wealthy Affiliate, there are plenty of measures to track your training and help speed up the process.
The Tools Are Powerful
All successful businesses need a variety of tools to perform necessary functions and create efficiency.
The main focus of any online business is building websites, researching niches and keywords, creating and publishing content, and tracking different metrics to improve on your SEO campaigns.
At Wealthy Affiliate, you have all the tools and resources you need to create your business, scale it with time-saving techniques, and stay ahead of the competition.
All of these tools can save you hundreds of hours in time saved through the year, which is so important for our already busy lives. The more time you save, the more time you have to be productive in your business.
Wealthy Affiliate has a very powerful platform called “SiteRubix”. And within it are great tools…
Let me talk about a few of these.
First and foremost, you need an excellent website platform. Your website is the foundation of your online business, the face of your business. You want to have it grow over time, and to perform efficiently, even in times of changing technology.
And Wealthy Affiliate delivers.
They currently provide you with 4,174 different WordPress themes to choose from. I think you’ll find something you like, eh?
Unlike years ago when programming skills, and about a month of your time, were needed to design templates, the SiteBuilder will build your website in under 30 seconds.
Pick your domain name, enter your website title, choose from over 4,000 designs (themes) and click “build”. That’s all there is to it.
Personally, I love browsing through the themes, so I usually take more than 30 seconds, haha.
With the starter membership, you get a completely free website. Premium members’ can host up to 10 websites, at no extra cost. In fact, there are multi-million dollar businesses using Wealthy Affiliate’s platform.
Each year, they consistently improve and add to their services to deliver you the best experience possible. At no additional cost! They focus on:
- Website speed
- Ease of use
- Proper encryption and monitoring
- Daily website backups
- Website management
- Advanced features and plugins
- Timely support
Wealthy Affiliate takes care of all the technical aspects so that you can focus on what’s important. Your business!
Wealthy Affiliate’s hosting platform is one of the most advanced hosting platforms online.
Within the Site Manager, you can easily access your websites with secure passwords. And you can change this automatically generated password with a click of a button.
As your business becomes more established, you’ll want to get an overview of which features are working and what you can improve upon for better overall ranking.
As you can see, I’ve just purchased a new domain, and I can access many stats as my website grows.
You can also access your website’s email from here.
Personally, I forward all my website’s email to my business Gmail account so I can get them all in one place. It’s an easy feature to set up within the email feature.
You can choose from millions of available domains, and when purchased through Wealthy Affiliate, all your domain needs are included for one flat price of $13.99 or $15.99 per year.
No upsells for security, email accounts, etc. It’s all included in one low price.
And did you notice the ability to set your renewal to “Auto”? Such an important feature will save you from much heartache if you forget to renew year after year.
Hours saved: approximately 50 hours per month
This editor is a marketer’s dream platform. Why? Because as online marketers, we all know that content is KING.
That being so, our content needs to provide our viewers with the best experience possible.
Here, you have access to over 1 million high definition images with no worry of copyright infringement. This alone will save you hours! No more searching the net for free images…
You can edit your images, and then they’re compressed before uploading to improve site optimization and speed.
The editor provides grammar and spell checks, has SEO tracking features, content uniqueness monitoring, and much more.
And, once you’ve written your perfect article, you can publish directly to your website.
I enjoy the statistics related to my writing goals. Setting goals keeps me motivated and on track for timely publications. And this, in turn, helps my ranking.
Using the training modules, and site content, you will learn how to efficiently build trust with your viewers so that you can become an authoritative voice in your niche.
And of course, that means sales. The more sales you get, to more successful you will be. Isn’t that our Holy Grail? haha…
Hours saved: approximately 15 hours per month
Did you know that Google loves to see content that’s engaging? This means that your viewers are engaging with you by leaving comments on your posts.
And Wealthy Affiliate gives you a “leg up” to get you started.
You can ask the community to comment on your article. And you can even earn credits by leaving some on other’s articles.
The owners have set up this system to ensure that the comments given and received are relevant and high quality.
Those are the types of comments that improve your SEO.
So you can earn credits by leaving comments, and then turn around and ask for comments by paying with your credits. You can also exchange your credits for cash if you wish!
Similar to site comments, you can ask for feedback on your site. This is very helpful if you’re a beginner, and not sure if your website is “user-friendly”.
We all want our sites to be attractive and easily navigated to retain our readers. And sometimes we can’t see the forest for the trees, right?
So allowing others to see what we’ve created, and asking them for their opinions and advice, is a great way to improve our online business.
The owners have designed this to work with credits as well. Again, to ensure we give or receive the quality of feedback we deserve.
Niche and Keyword Research
After you have chosen your niche and built your amazing website, you need to drive traffic to your site. This involves research.
The most important way to get a great ranking in Google is to find those high traffic, low competition keywords to use within your content.
Wealthy Affiliate delivers again! As a member, you have exclusive use of the most powerful research platform online.
It’s called Jaaxy and was created by the owners for their members. It will search out the best keywords for you to leverage.
Jaaxy pulls in keywords from Google, Bing and Yahoo, so you can be sure you’re getting 99% search coverage of the most popular search engines.
This tool has many functions to improve your SEO and rise to the top of Google…
Site Rank is one of my favourite metrics and gives me the ability to monitor my website ranking within Google, Bing, and Yahoo. This is also an automated tracking platform, which is a great time saver for me.
I won’t go into all the functions here, because this review is getting long enough, lol.
If you would like a more detailed review, please read my Jaaxy Review.
Hours saved: approximately 15 hours per month
New to the platform, as of May 2019, is a search tool for affiliate programs.
As you can see in the image above, you can search for affiliate programs in every niche there is. Kyle and Carson have vetted all these programs, so you can trust what you choose.
Simply type in the niche you chose, and the program will pull up all relevant programs for you.
From there, it will provide you with important metrics, as well as member reviews and comments, to help make your choice.
Hours saved: approximately 20 hours per month (depending on your affiliate strategies)
The Support is Unbelievable
One of the best attributes of Wealthy Affiliate is the community support.
With over 1 million active members, it’s become THE place to go for newcomers to learn affiliate marketing.
You will soon realize how genuine, caring, and diverse the community is. There are always many successful marketers online, willing to help you.
This is definitely a “pay it forward” community.
You get individual support in many ways…
Live Instant Chat is what I explained to you above.
Training Q & A is the ability to comment and ask questions below each of the 1000’s of training modules. This is important for clarification and encouragement.
Ask The Community is a platform that allows you to ask anything, and get exposure to the entire community.
Your answers to questions come almost immediately, which is so beneficial for a beginner. There’s nothing worse than having to wait days for an answer when you’re stuck!
Personal Coaching is available to everyone. Once inside, and you start networking, you have the opportunity to receive private coaching from anyone you’ve connected with. This is where the highly successful members pay it forward.
The Help Center links you to all the methods of support.
Site Support is for any technical questions you have about your website. They promise to answer within 24 hours, but my experience has been immediate to no more than an hour or so.
Live Chat is linked here as well.
Ask A Question brings up the question platform to ask the community.
Private Messaging is available to all Premium members. This is great for mentoring and help. (Or just to say hi)
Premium Coaches give you the ability to contact Kyle or Carson personally.
Top Helpers are members are those who are most active in the community. They quickly respond to questions, write helpful blogs, and create additional training for community use.
These helpers can change from day to day depending on how active they are on the platform.
Amazing Success Stories
There are thousands and thousands of success stories blogged within Wealthy Affiliate. This not only gives the proof of how well this platform works but gives newcomers encouragement to keep on training.
You can find members who’ve posted their first affiliate sale to those who quit their day jobs to pursue their online business full time.
Here is a sampling of success stories in the last 3 years…
Personally, I can’t speak highly enough of Wealthy Affiliate. Kyle and Carson genuinely want to help people succeed with their businesses. Despite their huge success with this platform, they continually remain humble and accessible.
As I previously stated, the starter membership is free. If you decide to become a premium member, it’s only $49/month or $495 per year. If you pay annually, it’s basically paying for 10 months, get 2 for free!
That’s the same price they offered back in 2005. Isn’t that crazy!!
Here is a breakdown of what you get for Free vs. Premium Membership…
I want to give you an accurate idea of cost comparisons to other programs. I compared asset to asset, meaning I looked at programs that offered the same qualities and benefits you’d receive from Wealthy Affiliate.
So why not give Wealthy Affiliate a try! You have nothing to lose. The starter membership is free and doesn’t require your credit card. You can get started in 5 minutes!
And when you join, I’ll be there to greet you inside, and coach you along for as long as you wish! See you soon!
If you have any comments or questions, please leave them below. I’d love to hear from you.
And if you know anyone who would benefit from this Wealthy Affiliate review, please share.
I believe everyone deserves the opportunity to earn financial freedom!

This is really a great place for beginners to get started.
Hi Wilhelmina, and thanks so much for your kind words.

This is by far one of the most informative article about WA.
I’m glad to know that you are able to offer your readers a complete review and offer examples of the website and different tools.
Even the first 10 lessons for free are very informative. Enough to reach a complete beginner how to start an online business.
After those first 10 lessons, I knew I had to join the membership to keep learning and growing. The value you get for the low monthly cost is incredible.
Thanks for sharing as this can help others decide if it is a good fit for them.
Hi Heriberto, and thank you for your kind words.

It’s good to hear you moving forward. With hard work and patience, you’ll be one of the success stories.
Looking forward to hearing from you again,
This is an excellent presentation. It tells a complete story.
I have only been with Wealthy Affiliate for 2.5 months so I am going to keep a copy for myself. It is almost like a guide to setting my goals or for a business plan.
Thank you for this thorough and honest review,
Hi, Stephen, and thanks for commenting.
I’m so happy you enjoyed my review. And happy to hear you are a fellow member of wealthy affiliate. It’s a great platform, isn’t it?

It is so nice to read a review that’s honest and thorough. I don’t imagine you left out any important details. If I come up with any more questions, can I email you?
You must continue your writing. I’m sure, you have a huge readers’ base already!
Thanks again, Darina
Hi Darina, and thanks for your kind words.
And yes, whenever you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. I’d love to help.
As for Wealthy Affiliate, they truly are amazing! I’ve been there for years and have seen so many new additions and improvements. The owners truly care about the platform and their members.
If you want the best training and tools for a low membership cost, you won’t find anything better.
Lovely review Suzanne.
For me, Wealthy Affiliate has been amazing!
My diabetes is more controlled because I decided to author a website on diabetes as part of my wealthy affiliate training. The things I’m learning are a big help to me, as well as my readers.
Integrity is a big part of the program and so I make sure I am putting facts on the table and there is no deception.
Being in a network with people hungry to make an online income has been amazing, and I have learned so much to date.
I can now say that I know how to make money online and that it is working in my favour.
Hi Josephine, and thanks so much for sharing your story!
First of all, I’m happy to hear about your health. I’m also a diabetic and know it’s important to learn how to manage it.
Happy to hear you are a member of Wealthy Affiliate. It’s such a great platform, right? And yes, the owners are honest, transparent, and full of integrity.
They are so involved in the community, so it’s easy to see.
And yes, the community is what keeps me there, lol. That and the great price. There’s no way I could get hosting and all the tools for so little per month.
I’m happy to hear you now know how to make money online. If you ever need any more help, let me know. I’m easy to find on the platform…
Nice work on your Wealthy Affiliate review.
This place seems to have it all. I have been looking for someone to teach me how to make money online, and it looks like I have found it!
My question is how can you get all of this for a low membership cost? Has the price gone up over the years? It seems so low for everything you get.
Do I have to commit to a certain length of time?
Looking forward to your response. Nouman
Hi Nouman, and thanks for your questions.
The owners of Wealthy Affiliate have always put their members above making money off of them. They know that there are many products out there that are charging way too much money for what they offer, and they are determined not to do that.
That’s one of the reasons why I like WA so much. They care about their members becoming successful.
It’s amazing that when they started, about 15 years ago, it was simply a keyword list site. And they were charging exactly the same then as they do now.
Only now you get everything you need to start your business. And every year they keep improving, adding, and updating. And the membership cost is the same as it was 15 years ago.
You don’t have to commit to anything. You can certainly pay monthly, and leave whenever you wish. I do recommend at least a year though. Their stats show that those members who do commit for at least a year are more successful.
I’ve been there for 8 years, and don’t plan on leaving. The total cost of website hosting, keyword research, and more training than I have time to take (lol) is way cheaper there than anywhere else online.
Glad you’re giving us a try,
I have been a member of Wealthy Affiliate for over 4 years and reached my goal of earning a full-time income from my website.
The training works for those who persist and don’t give up easily.
It takes time to grow a website from scratch, but it’s worth it!
Hi Stefan, and thanks for your wise words!
A successful business takes time, but when it starts to work, it really works, lol.
Many people quit too soon due to impatience, and I don’t blame them because there are so many scammers promising overnight riches. So all I can do is encourage patience and hard work. And hopefully, my readers will see the truth in those statements.
I’m so happy to see that you’re earning a full-time income now. Some people can do it in a year, and some take longer. It really depends on your niche and how many hours you invest in your business each week.
And that’s the free traffic way! You could speed that up if you have an advertising budget, but most newbies can’t afford that. But if you reinvest your first profits into advertising, that could help scale up faster.
There are so many techniques and strategies, and Wealthy Affiliate discusses them all.
It is a wonderful post and so exhaustive yet a nice reading article.
You have touched upon every aspect of affiliate marketing.
This may lead to an excellent home-based career with almost negligible investment.
Thank you so much for writing this article.
Thanks so much for your kind words.
Yes, affiliate marketing is a wonderful home-based business. And you get everything you need for one low monthly cost. It’s pretty amazing and no one else online comes close to offering so much for so little.
If you have any more questions, please let me know. I’d love to help.
A very honest, insightful and comprehensive review of this amazing learning platform. It really does seem to be a University for affiliate marketing!
WA is the best thing that happened to me when I was searching for a way to earn money online. They are honest and modest with all kind of learning methods.
I am glad to know such awesome information about an awesome platform.
Hi Mohammad, and I’m glad you enjoyed my review of Wealthy Affiliate.
I agree they are the best platform online, today. Especially for the price. Other training systems are fine, but they never include all the tools you need under one roof. This has it all, and for an affordable price too!
It’s a proven business with many very successful members. Some have even created million-dollar businesses, which is awesome.
I’m glad to know you’re a member as well and wish you even more success!
A very comprehensive review of this great learning platform!
WA was the best thing that happened to me when I was spinning my wheels trying to figure out how to earn online.
For your readers: WA is worth every penny, not just for affiliate marketing, but as an all-around online business education and hosting portal.
Thanks, Edwin, for commenting.
I have to agree, lol. I love Wealthy Affiliate. There’s nothing like it anywhere else online. The training is current, in-depth, and continually being added to. And the convenience of having your business hosted right on the platform is great.
It amazes me all we get for one low price. It would cost so much more to get all this training and services from other businesses online. It only makes sense to use Wealthy Affiliate.
And I’m always updating this review because every year, they add something new to the platform. And at no additional cost to us.
Hi Suzanne, You’ve written a great article here.
I’ve been looking at Wealthy Affiliate for some time now, not knowing if it was legitimate or not.
Why should I join? What can it offer me? Is it worth it?
You’ve answered all these questions for me thanks. I will be joining up. For a free membership at least, to see how it goes.
I’m so happy I could answer all your questions! I try to provide as many answers as I can think of that people would want to know.
Wealthy Affiliate is the real deal! They deliver what they promise and are a proven success.
I love the fact that they provide everything under one roof… the training, tools, and community support. It’s quite amazing really!
I’m glad you’re going to try it out. There’s nothing to lose, and I know you’ll love it when you get in there.
I joined many affiliate training programs over the years and Wealthy Affiliate beats every one of them, hands-down.
Often, with other programs, you’re left high and dry when you have questions or need that little extra bit of help.
Worse, some courses are never upgraded and soon go out of date.
Wealthy Affiliate is none of those things. Great help from the owners and the vibrant community, and ever-expanding courses that’s also kept-up-to-date.
Great review, Suzanne, of a great training program!
Thanks for your comment Gary!
Yes, Wealthy Affiliate is one of a kind. And they are all-inclusive so you never have to go elsewhere to get something you need.
I’ve been there since 2011, and have no plans to leave. There’s always something new to learn and the hosting platform is incredibly powerful.
Suzanne, what a great review of the Wealthy Affiliate program! I’m so happy to see that you’re sharing this valuable information with others who would like to earn money successfully online.
If I weren’t already a member of Wealthy Affiliate, your review would make me want to sign up immediately!
You explain it all so clearly – about the excellent training, website hosting, keyword research tools, writing tools, community, etc.
And I agree 100% with your recommendation of Wealthy Affiliate. It’s such a wonderful place to learn and earn online, and I’m thrilled to the gills with my membership!
Thanks for creating such a thorough, thoughtful review.
Thank you, Joanie, for the kind words.
I’m so happy you enjoyed my review. It’s hard to get everything in one post, lol. They provide so many awesome things!
I tried to cover the more important aspects that members need to reach success. And there are many successful marketers, logged on every day to help out. Even the millionaires still help the newbies. It’s great!
Happy to hear you’re a fellow member who’s loving it! Hope to catch you online soon!
You really summed up Wealthy Affiliate.
Having this awesome post about WA, you can help a lot of people get started the right way.
I wish I had found this when I was looking for place to learn!
Thanks for this great article 🙂
Hi Mira, and thank you for your kind words.
You know, it’s never too late to join us here. We have many experienced marketers who join to improve upon their techniques and strategies.
Many also join to have access to our community. It’s a great place to network.
I gotta hand it to you…you really summed up Wealthy Affiliate. Great article.
If I did not know about this educational platform on the inside, I would be willing to take a look based on your article. Thanks so much for taking the time to remind me of the wonderful opportunity and to let others know as well.
All the best.
Thank you, Michelle, for your kind words.
I’m happy to hear you’re a fellow member! It’s an awesome platform, isn’t it?
I’ve been here for years now and still haven’t seen all the additional training, lol. My favourite part is the community. It has such a pay it forward attitude. The successful helping the newbies. It’s great!
Hope to chat with you on the inside!
I always welcome affiliate opportunities for my blog. You can contact me, always.
Thank you for all this important information.
Hi Cemal, and thanks for commenting.
I’m so happy you enjoyed my review, and I’ll be sure to contact you regarding Wealthy Affiliate. It’s an amazing platform. You get everything you need to start your business, all under one roof for a ridiculously low price.
If your blog is about affiliate marketing opportunities, I believe you’ll enjoy sharing this with your readers. It’s a proven, legitimate platform for both newbies and experienced marketers.
Your approach to introducing and explaining WA is very thorough and informative, and you did an excellent job of stressing all of the positive benefits WA offers a marketer. You’ve got me excited about it! Thanks for sharing.
Thank you, Terry, I’m so glad you enjoyed my review.
It’s an incredible platform that offers so much for a low cost. There’s nothing else like it online, and certainly not for that price.
I’ve been there for years now, and don’t plan on leaving. The community is amazing, and that’s what’s keeping me there, lol.
I hope you give them a try. You won’t regret it!
I already have a live wordpress website hosted by GoDaddy. I am considering EBA but was directed to WA. Should I still join if I have the website already?
Yes, you certainly can. You can move your website over to Wealthy Affiliate, or leave it at GoDaddy.
Personally, I would move it over because the hosting is awesome at WA. And their security it state-of-the-art. I’ve personally used their site support, and they respond quickly and effectively. The choice is yours, but you won’t regret moving it over.
Remember to save your site to your computer first though! If you’re not sure how to move over, there are in-depth explanations within WA, and I’m sure GoDaddy does too.
If you have any more questions, please let me know.
Thanks a lot, Suzanne, for the informative and insightful post! Kudos to you!
I particularly got excited with the phrase that states “There are three things that separate the successful from those that fail consistently which are”
1. The education they receive
2. The tools they leverage; and
3. The support they get”
As for Wealthy Affiliate, you’ve said it all. How I wish I had come across this community about 5 years ago! It provides all tools and resources to become successful and there’s 24/7 live support for all members.
I must admit that your review about Wealthy Affiliate is perfect and complete. Thanks for the informative review!
Thanks, Israel, for your kind words. I’m so glad you enjoyed my article.
And yay! So happy you’ve joined us. It truly is a remarkable platform. Especially for newbies to the industry, but also for those with experience and are still struggling.
The supportive community is my favourite part. Everyone has such a pay-it-forward attitude. And I’ve made friends around the world now. It’s great.
I wish you all the best with your business,
Wow, really great article, well researched and written. All the information is super, thank you.
I know Wealthy Affiliate is such a great platform for everyone, not just beginners, but advanced too.
This is a really great review. Keep going with this kind of work.
Thanks, Felix, for your kind words.
I’ve been with Wealthy Affiliate for years now, and am still learning new things, lol. There is a never ending supply of training that’s being added. So yes, even the advanced can keep learning.
This industry changes so quickly, and it’s great to be part of a community that helps one another through these changes.
I hope you’re a member too. If you need any future help, let me know, OK?
What a wonderful and thorough review of Wealthy Affiliate. If I weren’t already a member, I would join.
Wealthy Affiliate offers everything that you have said. It is great to be able to get answers to your questions in a short amount of time and to know that this method works for so many people.
Kyle and Carson truly are dedicated to helping everyone succeed. There are few places where the founders are even active any more, much less open to even the newest members to contact them personally.
Thanks for a great read!
Thank you, Anita, for your kind words.
Yes, I certainly agree with you about the founders, Carson and Kyle. I’ve reviewed many platforms, and it’s rare to see the owners so involved if at all.
Kyle is often involved with the live chat and is easily accessible by private message. And Carson is constantly upgrading and adding new tools for us to use. They are both always on top of the newest techniques and share them with the rest of us.
I highly recommend them for anyone wanting to learn how to build their own online business.
There are many advantages to yearly membership at Wealthy Affiliate. The training, chat, hosting, ease of writing articles and getting comments are some of the great things.
Having a year to get your business going, with less cost per month, are two of the great advantages.
You can spend less money there than just getting website hosting elsewhere.
Yes, there are so many advantages to becoming a member with Wealthy Affiliate. Like I said in the review, it’s less than getting the same quality services elsewhere, plus all the great training and community.
I’ve been with them for several years now, and have no desire to leave. The training seems never ending. And as long as there are changes in this industry (which there always is), there will be new things to learn.
I’m assuming you’re a member already, and if not, you should check it out. You won’t be disappointed.
I have been with Wealthy Affiliate for almost two years, and will continue to be with this great program. I have more than 27 years of digital marketing experience. So, why do I still want to stay at Wealthy Affiliate?
It is because this is truly an effective and powerful program. Even with 27 years of experience, I find that I have learned a lot from Wealthy Affiliate, and continue to learn more.
Everything that Suzanne said here is true. And I am testimony to that.
Thanks Suzanne! 🙂
Thanks Timotheus, for your kind words.
And thank you for your testimony. This truly is a wonderful platform. I haven’t been involved in marketing as long as you, but I have been here for several years now. There is always something new to learn here.
The online marketing landscape changes so often, so the learning curve never ends. What’s nice about Wealthy Affiliate is they’re continual addition and updates to the training courses. They make sure they stay ahead of these changes so that our ability to remain successful is always possible.
As a fellow WA member, Suzanne, I can vouch for all that you have said about WA … and more!!
People may be thinking my comment here may be biased. But I argue this: if it was all fibs, why on earth would I still be hanging around WA after 2 and a half years if it weren’t worth its while?
If I hadn’t found the whole package advantageous to me, I would never have kept wasting my time and effort, and money in it, right?
I really hope your visitors see the potential there is for this business plan. As you say, it’s good for pros, but it’s absolutely perfect for newbies 🙂
Thank you so much for your comment Giulia.
Yes, you’re so right. I’ve been here since 2011, and I still find a lot of valuable information to use. The learning is never-ending, and I’ve made such good friends around the world, just from the support community.
I still believe this is the best online platform out there. Kyle and Carson are continually updating, improving, and adding tools and features to make marketing so much easier. It’s truly an all-inclusive platform.
Excellent review. I am also a member of Wealthy Affiliates.
It is a great community and has so much to offer. Definitely adds what is needed for success.
Thanks for sharing.
Hi Tara and thanks for commenting.
I’m so glad you’re a member too. It’s amazing, isn’t it? The community is my favorite part. I am continually amazed at how everyone has a “pay it forward” attitude. Even the most successful members are ready and willing to help the beginners. I’m somewhere in the middle, lol.
I must admit if it was not for me joining Wealthy Affiliate myself I would not be where I am today.
I was hesitant about joining this program after being scammed by similar programs. You can be sure this is a legitimate and honest training program which you will learn more than you ever imagine.
Hi Jeff, and thank you for your comment
I was in the same boat as you, being scammed in the past. Wealthy Affiliate is a breath of fresh air! They are truly a quality platform with top of the class training and tools. I’m so pleased you’re a member too!
How amazing is this review? Wow!
I am also a member of WA and you are so right,there is much to offer. And to learn here. And fabulous community.. like you. I would highly recommend it to anyone just getting started.
In peace and gratitude, ariel
Thank you, Ariel,
This truly is a wonderful place, isn’t it? I tried to show all the key areas of Wealthy Affiliate, yet there’s so much more. I can’t imagine learning all that I have anywhere else. The training is first class, and the community support is unbelievable.
This is definitely the best place for a newbie. So easy to learn, because they take you by the hand each step of the way.
Thank you for this great and informative article.
Thanks so much, Delroy! I’m glad you enjoyed it.
This platform is truly awesome. It’s the best place to start your online career, or just to give your business the boost it needs.
If you have any questions regarding Wealthy Affiliate, please let me know. I’m here to help!
Very good review looks like you covered everything nicely. I think I even learned some new stuff I didn’t know. All was true about the great community to be a part of, and unmatched training.
Glad you learned something new, lol. The WA platform has so much to offer, it takes a while to get to everything. As a newcomer, I would recommend you follow the certification course before anything else. You don’t want to get overwhelmed. As you go through the course, Kyle will show you all the other benefits, one by one. In a short time, everything falls into place and makes sense.
The community is my favourite part. It’s a great way to network and get valuable advice or help. And the successful members are more than willing to help the newcomers.
That is a great article. It explain very clearly every aspect of Wealthy Affiliate.
I joined the community a few weeks ago. It’s a wonderful way to start making your own money. There are a lot of people who start the same journey and we all like supporting each other!
Thank you for your comment! And welcome to Wealthy Affiliate. You made the right choice.
There are still so many people who don’t grasp the power of the internet, and all the opportunities to make money. Though some will say the market is too saturated already, they couldn’t be farther from truth. With more and more people having access to the internet, the amount of people you can reach is massive.
WA has over 1 million members, with many becoming very successful. If you follow the steps and finish the certification course, you’ll be well on your way. And there’s so many additional training modules, than you can scale and grow your business as large as you want. With support all the way.
I wish you the very best with your new online journey. If you need help, please let me know!
Hello there Suzanne,
This is a great review on Wealthy Affiliate. If I was not already a member, I would certainly take the plunge. I agree 100% to all that you have written. Wealthy Affiliate is a great community not only for learning but for building relationships as you learn. It hosts such a cornucopia of talented individuals who are more than willing to help you on your success journey. I would encourage anyone reading this to try out the 7-day free membership and see what it is all about. It is so worth the investment in yourself.
Hi Michelle and thank you for your kind words.
WA is such an amazing platform, not only for the training and tools, but the support. In the beginning I asked many questions and always received a cheerful answer. And now, I love helping those who are just learning too. It’s very much a pay it forward community.
I’m glad you’re a member and wish you well with your business.
This is an excellent post for all people who want to make extra money or leave their job and work from home. Wealthy Affiliate offers great opportunity to do that. Wealthy Affiliate is a great platform where you can get knowledge and opportunities for earning. Thanks for sharing.
Thank you Maja.
Yes, Wealthy Affiliate is a wonderful platform for anyone starting from scratch, to those who need that additional boost to reach success with their current business.
I believe they are the best choice if you’re hoping to quit your day job and work from home. Or anywhere, really. As long as you have an internet connection, you’re ready to go. It’s so liberating!
I hope this means your a member already, or if not, please let me know if you have any more questions. I’d love to help.
Thanks for the great review of Wealthy Affiliate. I’m a big fan of Wealthy Affiliate; the value they offer is incredible when compared to other options and the training is great! I noticed that you posted screenshots of success that others have found with Wealthy Affiliate but I haven’t been able to chat with people directly who have found such success. I’ve always been interested to hear more about the numbers behind the numbers; for example, one of the testimonials claimed a net of $58k in 35 days…was this because $10k was spent in advertising a launch during the previous month? Or, perhaps he spent a year creating blog posts to drive traffic and then the income came.
I’m so glad you enjoy Wealthy Affiliate. The value is exceptional for everything they offer. And no upsells, which is important to me. Everyone can start for free, then upgrade to premium and that’s it.
There are many more success stories like the ones I mentioned, and if you go to their profiles, all of the posts they’ve published over the years are listed under their name.
Many who’ve had this type of success are happy to share how they’ve achieved it. So most likely there’s a post about it. If not, you can private message them and ask directly. I’ve talked to several successful marketers for advice and mentoring.
There are many ways to achieve that kind of income. If they’ve been consistently receiving high monthly income, then it’s possible they reinvest it into their business for higher returns. That’s what I do. This is one way to grow your business…reinvest.
Of course blogging over time is always necessary. It takes time for your website to “age” and gain authority in Google’s eyes.
If you have any more questions, please let me know. I’d love to help.
I think I’m an example of how the Wealthy Affiliate community helps people achieve their goals and lay a foundation for success. Recently I wanted a way to better show case the products on my website. I reached out to a fellow WA community member, and got help on the best way to get started.
For me it was switching to a storefront theme that would make it easier for customers to see my products.
I still have a lot of work to do, but I know once it’s all done I’ll be in a really good place.
My story is replicated hundreds of time at WA. This makes it a very powerful platform for success.
Thank you Thabo, for your comment. You are an excellent example. I am always so impressed with the level of “pay it forward” attitude in this community. Those who are successful willingly help the newcomers, and everyone in between. I can’t imagine what it would be like to go it alone. I wish you all the best, and can’t wait to see your new website!!
That was a great review of Wealthy Affiliate. I am also a member and the information you provide in your article is very accurate.
I am wondering about your experience using the Site Content feature. I haven’t used it and wanted to know how easy it is to use. I usually write my content within WordPress but after reading your article, I probably could save a lot of time by using this feature.
Thanks for sharing,
I love the site content feature! It’s not only simple to use, they now provide over 1 million optimized photos to use in your blogs. No more worrying about copyrights.
I like the fact that all your blogs are saved there, and you can organize them according to website.
Once I’m done writing, I can publish directly to my WordPress website, save it as a draft to fine tune, or publish at a predetermined date. That’s so handy when you know you’ll be away for some time.
I think you’ll really enjoy it. It does save a lot of time overall.
Hi Suzanne, excellent information on Wealthy Affiliate, you have really broken down the components with a well thought out explanation for why they are very useful to earning online. Thanks for sharing.
Thank you, Tara, for your lovely comment. I believe this platform is the best one online. They have everything you could need, and they still roll out new products each year. It’s really incredible what you get for the premium price.
Wealthy Affiliate is DEFINITELY one of the best services you can get out there. First of all, it’s simple as hell!! Even a person who has NEVER been acquainted with web development can find his/her comfort zone.
The education they provide there is STATE OF THE ART!! And the community is so nice and helpful. I ADVISE IT!
Hi Tyler, and thanks for your comment.
Yes, it’s very simple to learn through their training, and they provide so many different styles, depending on what’s best for you. I truly love the community there. It’s massive and everyone has the “pay-it-forward” mentality. Helping one another out is incredibly beneficial for newcomers.
What I appreciate is all the updated training that’s continually added. When changes come along, like Google algorithms and the recent changes to YouTube, it’s great to know that there’ll be new training on the subject. What better way to stay ahead of the curve and remain successful.
Very well laid out. If I was not already a member, I could easily make a decision with the information you provide. thank you
Thanks Frank for your kind words. I’m glad you like Wealthy Affiliate too. Once you start, it gets quite addictive doesn’t it, haha.
I recently joined Wealthy Affiliate after wasting a lot of time searching for a legitimate opportunity to make additional money online. Your review is a very accurate depiction of the enormous opportunities offered. The Training is amazing, anyone can learn. All the foundational tools are included with your membership. I can’t say enough positive things about the community.
Wishing you continued success in your journey!
Thank you for your comment. Like you, I also spent a lot of time looking at different ways to make money online, only to be disappointed and frustrated. Wealthy Affiliate is truly an amazing platform. I love the sincerity of the community to truly help everyone. And I can’t speak highly enough of Kyle and Carson.
Wishing you success also!
Its a well written post, anyone can take an educated decision after readig this.
All the best.
Thank you Sarim. I appreciate your comment. It’s my desire to help anyone searching for an authentic platform to see what Wealthy Affiliate offers. Blessings!
