Wealthy Affiliate Review

Please keep in mind as you read this review that I have only been a member of Wealthy Affiliate for approximately 3 weeks and previously had zero experience with affiliate marketing.

Wealthy Affiliate Review

Product Name:  Wealthy Affiliate

Website: WealthyAffiliate.com

Cost: Starter Membership: $0   Premium Membership:  $47/month or $359/year

Owners: Kyle and Carson

Recommend: Yes 🙂

What is Wealthy Affiliate:  Wealthy Affiliate is an online community of people who are interested in creating websites and making money through affiliate marketing.  It provides an abundance of training and support for its members.

Pros:  

  • Step by step training which is especially helpful to members like myself with no previous experience
  • Has a community feel where members are supportive and helpful
  • 2 free websites as a Starter Member
  • Spam free
  • Free to start (no need for a credit card)
  • Only need a computer and internet
  • Free website hosting (here is where I have to admit to my inexperience – I don’t really know what website hosting is at this point, but I’m happy it is free!)
  • They let you know up front that success requires effort and hard work on your part – Wealthy Affiliate is not a get rich quick scheme
  • If you decide to become a Premium member, everything is included – there are no upsells (the only extra you will be paying is the approximately $15/yr for your domain name)

Cons:

  • It is time consuming to go through the training.  Be prepared to put in the effort and have patience.
  • Although I believe all the tools are provided to start your on-line business, there is no guarantee you will be successful.
  • The first 7 days of your Starter Membership comes with access to Premium Member benefits and although you will still have access to training and two free (subdomain) websites after those first days, you are really going to want to purchase the Premium Membership – at least I did. You could do what I did and take advantage of the discounted $19 membership for the first month so you can get a good look at what is offered and take full advantage of it. (I am going to decide when my month is up if I will stay Premium or go back to Starter.)

Who Is it For:  Any one who wants to make money online from a beginner to someone who already has an online business they want to expand.  You will only need a computer/laptop/tablet and an internet connection. Although I was looking for affiliate marketing for the newbie when I stumbled upon Wealthy Affiliate, it is obvious that many of the members have extensive experience and choose to stay  and continue to benefit from the vast amount of training available.

Support:  Wealthy Affiliate has a very supportive environment which is why I feel I will succeed.  Although the step by step instruction is excellent, I still get stuck at times and need help. The ability to ask members for help and quickly get answers allows me to get over the bumps in the road.  It has never taken me more than a few hours to get an answer when I asked the community.  The owners of the site, Kyle and Carson, are also very active on the site and are available to members.

Final Opinion:  Does Wealthy Affiliate work?  I’m not able to answer that question yet, but I am very hopeful that I have at least have a fighting chance at success.  I feel I have all the tools needed to start a online income source.  It is up to me to put in the work, but I believe I can succeed with the help of Wealthy Affiliate.  **You can follow my journey by reading my post listed under My Wealthy Affiliate Experience above. I hope to eventually send emails to those of you who are interested in following my blog to let you know when I create a new post – I just haven’t learned how to do this yet.  Wish me luck!

  1. No need to do some research. By joining on Wealthy Affiliate you will learn everything you need to become successful on this environment. I would like to congratulate you for taking your time to share the real value of what this has so people can realize that there are very few real legit opportunities out there and this is one of them.

    I enjoy reading your honest thoughts as you journey through WA.

    I am in a similar situation, in that I too began the WA training not too long ago.

    It is a daunting task to learn how this all works and how to make money using this type of system, but there seems to be alot of support and training.

    Good luck!

    1. Hi B,

      Thanks so much for taking the time to read my review. Yes, this journey is challenging, but for someone like me (with no previous experience) it would be impossible without the support of WA. Let’s hope we both find success here!

  3. Hello Su,

    I recommend Wealthy Affiliate as well it is the best platform I have came across for learning how to make money online. When I first started out I remember feeling overwhelmed but the training and community made it so easy to get going and succeed. You have done a great job reviewing them and I hope your website goes well for you!

    Thanks again,
    -Anthony

    1. Thanks Anthony! I’ve only been a member a short time but I have learned so much already! It has been overwhelming at times, but the support of the members really helps to get through those times.

  4. Hey SU,

    I’m a member of wealthy affiliate as well and I think you have done a very good job on your personal review of WA. I have only been a pro member for around two weeks and I totally agree with everything you put in your review.

    I’m still doing the task’s and taking everything in so I’ll let you know how I progress too.

    Keep up the good work!

    Joel

    1. Hi Joel,

      Thanks for the kind words. Good luck in your efforts – I do believe if we put in the work and take advantage of the support offered here, we will succeed. Keep in touch, I’d loved to here about your progress!

      Su 🙂

  5. To be completely honest, I love wealthy affiliate. COntent marketing or blogging as it is known is totally down my street as I do love blogging, been blogging for 7 years or so .. had no idea I could get paid fro it (actually had an inkling) but no idea how to.

    Training is, and this is the best part super easy to follow.

    1. It nice to hear from people who are having a positive experience with Wealthy Affiliate. I am also impressed with the abundance of training. Sounds like you have already found success. Congrats!

  6. Once again I have to agree with your review. You give an honest opinion on it and I have to agree as well. 8 months ago I was eager to start making money online, but I just didn’t know where to start, what to do, and where to learn from. I came across a site that mentioned wealthy affiliiate and I became massively interested and decided to join premium. That was singlehandedly the best investment I ever made in my life and now I am making $1500 every week online and have all the flexibility One could ever ask for 🙂

    1. Hi Jose, yes, I honestly believe Wealthy Affiliate is a great place to start/learn for people who are hoping to earn through the internet. They just need to realize that have to put in the work- it is not easy. $1500 a week – awesome! Congrats on your success 🙂

  7. Thanks for the lowdown on Wealthy Affiliate because I’ve gained some great insights into the program here. 🙂

    With a lot of low quality training programs and scams, Wealthy Affiliate really is a breat of fresh air for me. For a newbie (me), this platform has everything I need for building an online business, and the price is incredibly cheap too. If you compare WA to a lot of programs, they don’t offer as much as WA and they charge for expensive upgrades as well.

    Wealthy Affiliate is the one for me!

  8. Making money from home on the computer, is made a lot easier with WA. I host earnrecurringrevenuefromhome .com on WA, I can say that the training is priceless on WA to build a sucessfull affiliate business. Success with affiliate marketing takes time, and people must realize that success isn’t created overnight. Earn autopilot income from home as an affiliate marketer with little to no investment. Its a shame so many people fall for scams and miss out on legit opportunities like WA. Very helpful broken up content written in a way in which everyone can understand. Great review. Cheers!

  9. So how many member of this community are there? It certainly sounds exciting but I was wondering if ti was a popular place to learn – are people online there all the time and can you bother them for help? I only ask as I have a feeling I may need a bit of help when first starting out…

    1. There are over 800,000 thousand members, so yes there are people online all the time. I have never had any trouble getting an answer to my many questions! Good luck on your adventure 🙂

  10. I have looked into this program before. Is it really 47 a month? I have seen some people saying it is $49? Is it discounted for some people or do some people just have the wrong price point of this platform? I know it is only a 2 dollar difference but seeing mixed signals makes me think it could be a scam.

    1. Hi Kurtis, Thanks so much for taking the time to comment! The correct price is $49 a month for the premium membership. I started by joining with the free starter membership. After the first week, I went ahead and paid a $19 discounted rate for the first month of premium membership. After that first month, if you’d like to continue you can go ahead and pay the $49 a month or save by paying the yearly fee of $359 (however, I would only do this if you are sure you have the time and commitment to build your site/s.) I decided to pay the $359 and am on my second year of membership. It is definitely not a scam – there is a plethora of information/training and a extremely helpful group of fellow members willing to help with any questions. However, you will still need to put forth the time and effort to succeed and be willing to write meaningful posts to your site at least once a week.

      Good luck to you! Feel free to comment with any additionally questions 🙂

      Su
