Wealthy Affiliate Review

Hey! Tell me about Wealthy Affiliate.

What is the different between Wealthy Affiliate and other hosting companies

Affiliate marketing is not as simple as one might think, it is not just building a website and money with come rolling in.  It is not like that unless you are extremely lucky.  Yes, you could win lotto too.  If you think like that you can sign up with Blogger, Weebly, Wix or other website hosting companies who offer you a free website.

It is not that simple, that is why most people who take this route are destined to fail.  The reason why you failed is you don’t have anyone supporting you.  If you are stuck on something, where are you going to get answers?  Yes, you can go to some forums and they will answer your questions.  If you are lucky to find that someone who has the knowledge and who are willing to help you.  It will take you hours and hours to find that person, let alone to get answers. If you are lucky enough to find someone who is willing to answer your question, you might need to wait a couple of days before you have your answer.

Also, how do you know that the website you build is any good if you have no one to look at it and review it for you.  We all think our websites are the best, but in reality, it is usually not the case.  There are many aspects to building a good website – layout, content, colors and others.  After you published your website for some time and you found you have made nothing.  No visitors to your website or you have many visitors but no one is buying anything you recommended.

That is why you want to join me in Wealthy Affiliate because we could give you support.  They have a chat room and other members will answer your questions if your are stuck.  There are no other places or businesses like this where you can get such good support.  You can even email the owners of the business.  We could also review your website and tell you how good is your website.  We will tell you how to improve your content and other mistakes that you might not realize.

Most people who have tried affiliate marketing and failed, because they have no support.  Support is the most important part of any business – online and offline.

Also, if you sign up with me.  I can give you extra personal coaching.  I can review your website and your work, so you know you are heading in the right direction.  That will give you a much better chance of succeeding in building your online business.

There is another popular company who offers affiliate marketing training called Affilorama.
Please see my review here – Affilorama Review if you are interested.

More about Wealthy Affiliate

Now I am going to tell you more about Wealthy Affiliate.

Starter and Premium Membership

First of all joining and trying out is free. You can try it for as long as you want, there is no time limit.

Here is a diagram showing the benefits of a Starter Membership and Premium Membership.  As a starter member, you will have Live Support for the first 7 days. (Live Support means you can go on chat room, send messages and ask for technical support). The membership doesn’t end after the first 7 days, you could still work on your websites and be able to be active within Wealthy Affiliate.

You can see from the table below you get a lot for your membership fee.  They backup the website for you and make sure it is running 24/7.  They host your website on their servers, they offer you affiliate programs and much more.

When you first join, you will be offered a Getting Started Course, which has 10 lessons.  They are very easy to follow and most of them are in video format. I have similar tutorials on my website.

  • Getting Rolling
  • Understanding How to Make Money Online
  • Choose a Niche
  • Building Your OWN Website
  • Setting Up Your Website
  • Getting Your Site Ready for SEO
  • Finding Content Ideas from Keywords
  • Understand Website Pages & Creating Your First Website
  • Creating Quality Content
  • Congratulations and Your Next Steps – A Summary of What You Have Achieved

After you finished the beginner lessons, you would have a basic understand about Affiliate Marketing.  With a free website, you could try your hands in affiliate marketing without spending a dime. Start making money with your website. This kind of opportunity is hard to find.

There is always help if you need it.  I found the members are very friendly and always willing to help.  You can send a private message to the owners if you choose to.

Most people would be able to publish their first website within the first week. Some people prefer to take it slowly and publish their website after a month. When you published your website, you could ask for comments from other members.  Most will give you their honest opinions.

You should know the basics of how to make money online after the beginner lessons.  There are other ways to make money without building a website. (Social Media Marketing.) How much money you are going to make depends on how good is your website.

If you don’t know what to promote, you could always promote Wealthy Affiliate.  They have a very generous commission system and referral program.

 Referral Program:

  • You earn $23.5 per month for anyone you referred if they pay monthly, it is monthly recurring income
  • You earn $175 per year if they pay yearly, it is a yearly recurring income
  • If you could make 300 referrals in a year, you earn a free trip to Las Vegas (With everything pay for by Wealthy Affiliate).  You have the opportunity to meet the owners, Kyle and Carson.

Is Wealthy Affiliate suitable for you?

Only you could answer this question yourself.  I suggest you sign-up and see if it is what you are looking for.  It is free and you have nothing to lose, only your time.  In return, you will learn a lot.

I can assure you Wealthy Affiliate is not a scam.  It is not a get-rich-quick scheme or multi-level marketing scheme.  You want to make money, you have to spend time and work hard.  You will have to learn a lot of things to be good at this business.

You have to commit yourself to build this business.  Commitment is necessary if you are serious about anything, not only in business.  A professional tennis play has to spend many hours on practicing on the court.

Here are some of the comments from members of the community:

  • For the very first time in my life as mentioned on my profile page, I have achieved success in created my very first website and am the owner of my very own domain!  I have never dreamed of I could do something like this. Thanks to WA.
  •  In the first month, the website that I built has generated a total of $640, of which $64 dollars was my commission.  I’m happy with WA and I think it will definitely work for me,  I am glad I had made the decision to join WA.
  • Joining WA is the best decision I have ever made.  I have been scammed many times and I was sceptical.  Now I know I have come to the right place.  Two days in, I am already premium for I could see the value in what WA can offer.  The quality of the training are great and people are helpful.

In fact, 99% of the people who have joined Wealthy Affiliate said they have come to the right place.  It is really a very nice community; a good place to learn affiliate marketing. The two owners Carson and Kyle, they have acquired many years experience in this business.  They understand this business and they certainly know what does it take to be a successful affiliate marketer.

If you believed what I told you and you want to try it out.   It is FREE to join, so……….

  1. Nice review of Wealthy Affiliate. As a member I concur with your commentary on the platform and what it has to offer.

    The flexibility to move around the platform as you please once you are a premium member gives you the capability to operate at your own pace. The free membership gives you a lovely insight into what is on offer from a resource perspective.

  2. WA sounds slick! I love working with things that are my passion, because it doesn’t feel like working at all since you love doing that. I have this expertise in handling Dota tournaments and I would very much like to get my brand out there for more people who would require my services as an organiser. 

    I’m thinking of building a website of my own and for content, I have so many ideas to write about like How-to posts, game reviews, and tutorials. How long do you think beginners like me can get my website up ranking well? 😀

  3. Hello, indeed, one of the strengths of Wealthy Affiliate is the supportive community. You can put questions to members on all the topics of affiliate marketing. The many video tutorials are very good for learning to understand how affiliate marketing works. 
    I looked into several other websites promising to be quickly rich without work, but these are scams. Definitely, I agree with you there is only one good and complete website to support newbies in affiliate marketing. The way up is hard work and a supportive community

    • Hi Jacobs2,

      Wealthy Affiliate is definitely a good company with a very supportive community. I recommend anyone who is serious about building a business with affiliate marketing to join. You are also correct that hard work is needed. No pain, no gain.


  4. Could not agree more about Wealthy Affiliate,I have been a member for a year now. In that time I have been able to build 4 websites. The knowledge and training is second to none,I have learned more in the past year about affiliate marketing than the past 10 yrs doing it on my own. Number one platform online for a reason. 

  5. Affiliate marketing is my #1 recommendation for making money online in an ethical way. The potential of your earnings are so high, and wealthy affiliate is my #1 recommendation for learning all of the ins and outs of affiliate marketing. I loved all the stuff I have learned here and I would recommend this platform to anyone.

  6. Hi Mister,

    Thanks for this review, though i have no prior knowledge of affiliate marketing, this gives me an open mindset on it.I like acquiring new knowledge on things.I’m going to be regularly visiting your site for more knowledge on affiliate marketing while wealthy affiliate is on my educators list. I greatly appreciate your help.


  7. Hey there! I’m a college student and I’ve been looking for a part time job online. I don’t have a lot of knowledge prior to this kind of work but I heard a lot of good things about wealthy affiliate. Also I only have limited money to spend but I have a lot of spare time to invest. Do you think that I can handle this kind of job? I greatly appreciate yor response.

    • Hi John,

      You can do it if you are good with computer and writing contents. It is always a good idea to learn, even though you might not make any money at all. You can join WA as premium for a money, then learn as much as you can in the shortest time. You can save money if you can finish all the materials in a month or two. Afterwards, you just have to apply what you have earn.

      Good luck to you.

  8. Well you seem to have done really well within your first month of being at this wealthy affiliate – it has actually given me the drive to find out more about the platform!
    I quite like the idea of all the tools and all the website stuff being free – that’s got to eliminate some of the fee to begin with! How is this month going so far?

  9. Thanks for your great take on Wealthy Affiliate. 🙂 From what I see in your article, WA certainly seems like it’s in a league of its own. I’ve tried a lot of work from home opportunities and even affiliate training platforms, but none come close to what Wealthy Affiliate offers.

    The features, training and support, sound incredible. This is certainly a program suitable for anyone wishing to create an online business and make money.

    Thanks for the review. I’m definitely creating my free starter account.


  10. 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. WA is the best way to learn how to earn autopilot income from home for little to no investment and sell anything of your passion for life. Very helpful broken up content written in a way in which everyone can understand. Great review. Cheers!

  11. I think the greatest thing about Wealthy Affiliate is that it can help anyone build an online business from the ground up – it’s not a “get-rich-quick” strategy.

    It takes hard work to make money online and WA understands that. With the training, tools, and support they provide, anyone can be successful in the long run if they’re dedicated and willing to learn.

    • Hi Matt,

      Wealthy Affiliate is a good training ground for people who are just starting affiliate marketing. Like you said, it takes hard work to make money online. But if you can do it as a hobby, it could be fun too. I enjoy my time working on my website and seeing it grow is a wonderful experience.

      No one can promise you that you can make easy money with affiliate marketing. You will be successful if you keep learning and the most important of all, don’t quit.

  12. I appreciate your informative review of Wealthy Affiliate. I’ve heard so many good things about this platform and am eager to give it a try!

    And I totally agree that you MUST have a support system in place to succeed. Google Blogger platform has completely left me feeling alone and neglected, which is why I recently moved away from them to find higher quality customer service. Yes, you pay for it, but it has made such a difference in my productivity and success, and I truly believe you have to be invested in yourself and choose products that work best for you whether they’re free or worth the cost!

    • Hi Dee,
      You want to be successful in learning and achieving your goal in affiliate marketing. You had to have a support system behind so that you can go through the rollercoaster ride. Affiliate marketing is not easy as one might think. There is no better support system I have personally experienced online which even came close to Wealthy Affiliate.
      I too have tried Blogger platform, and because it is free, there is virtually no support. It doesn’t pay to waste our time trying to do things which are out of our capabilities.
      To anyone what want to learn affiliate marketing and build a successful online business. I highly recommend Wealthy Affiliate.

  13. Hello, MisterWailor,
    I am in agreement with you after reading your Review on Wealthy Affiliate. This is an excellent learn platform for anyone interested in learning how to make money online. I wish you all the luck in meeting your goals as an Affiliate Marketer. Take care.

    • Hi Prince,
      Thanks for visiting and leaving me a comment. Wealthy Affiliate sure is a good place to learn how to make money.
      I wish you good luck in 2016.


  14. Hi Mister Wailor

    As a Premium member of the Wealthy Affiliate community I can certainly agree with you that WA is not a scam nor is it one of those “Get Rich Quick” schemes. Which are all too frequently found on the Internet today.

    My profession as a Web Designer has been highly improved due to the extensive business training I have received to date.

    My possibilities are now endless. I am particularly looking forward to my continued achievements within WA this coming year and beyond.

    Excellent read MisterWailor.

    Kind Regards

    Michelle (ebwebdesign)

    • Hi Michelle,

      Thanks for your comment. Wealthy Affiliate is definitely not a “Get Rich Quick” scheme. I am sure you will be able to build a successful business with affiliate marketing.
      Good Luck!
