A huge welcome to my comprehensive 2020 review of Wealthy Affiliate (WA) – My top rated affiliate marketing platform! 😀
But while it is a favourite of mine, doesn’t necessarily make it perfect.
But still one of the best options for you to potentially earn a 5 – 6-figure yearly side-income online!
So as a full-fledged member since 2013…
I’m gonna share my brutally honest take outlining both the advantages and disadvantages of the community to help you make an informed decision.
Sound good to you, young grasshopper?
Awesome! Let’s crack on…
Name: Wealthy Affiliate.
Price: $0 for Starter Account (Click Here to Join).
Then it’s $49/month or $495/year for Premium membership.
Owners: Kyle & Carson.
My Rating: 7.5/10.
Who’s it For?: Beginner to Expert.
Wealthy Affiliate isn’t just a newbie-friendly community of over 2 million affiliate marketers offering you support 24/7…
But also provides tools (including a free WordPress blog builder) & step-by-step training for enabling you to create a profitable Biz from the ground up.
In my experience with WA so far, it’s a fantastic platform that actually works for making money.
But only IF you implement the training, utilize the tools, and reach out for help when it’s required.
However, saying that, the platform is in need of a little construction work when it comes to the training and keyword research side of things.
But when/if those issues are addressed, I might award WA with a score higher than 7.5 lol.
Joking aside, WA really is one of your best kick-ass options for starting and growing a successful affiliate marketing Biz, in my opinion.
To discover my ‘WA’ likes and dislikes.
But also HOW it will help YOU to create a passive income online as an affiliate marketer – jump right into this FULL review.
What on Earth is Wealthy Affiliate About & How Does it Work?
First of all, I’m sure you’ll agree with me that Wealthy Affiliate boasts some pretty impressive figures.
‘WA’ is a newbie-friendly platform/community.
That, equips you with the tools, services, training, and support for constructing a successful affiliate marketing Biz from scratch around something you love doing in life.
Put simply, you gain access to the 4 essentials for earning a full-time passive income on the web.
Without these jigsaw puzzle pieces firmly in place, you’re pretty much screwed as a noob from the get-go.
So yeah, the ‘WA’ fam is a pretty big deal.
And as for the process of how the program actually works, that’s a simple one to understand when you see the 4-steps involved:
- A Potential Customer Conducts a search in Google
- He or She Lands on Your Nice Website & Reads a Blog Post
- They Purchase a Product Via One of Your Affiliate Links
- And Bob’s Your Uncle… You Earn an Affiliate Commission From That Sale
But obviously, that’s only part of the equation because it’s gonna take plenty of elbow grease for the buckaroonies to come rolling in.
So roll up those sleeves ready to get ya hands dirty!
Who Owns Wealthy Affiliate, Huh?
Two down-to-earth besties by the names of Kyle Loudon and Carson Lim (both Canadians) are the brains behind the whole Wealthy Affiliate operation.
Which, has been running successfully since 2005.
Say hello to the internet and affiliate marketing legends with their families.
They’re also the same dudes behind the SiteRubix and Jaaxy tools that go hand-in-hand with the ‘WA’ training for building a successful Biz.
But more on those later on in this review.
So hats off to the top-dog duo for pouring their hearts and souls into their platform.
Which, BTW, has gone from strength-to-strength for more than a decade!
Who is Wealthy Affiliate For, Exactly?
From my perspective – having gone through the training a GAZILLION times (at least), I’d say ‘WA’ is for beginners more than anything.
But if you’re a pro marketer, then certainly still dip your big toe in the community.
So whether you’re:
- New to affiliate marketing
- Tired of being duped
- An 18 – 80+ year-old
- Still in school
- A college drop out
- In full/part-time employment
- Jobless or retired…
‘WA’ will suit you down to the ground.
Even if you’re struggling to profit like hell with your current online Biz.
Or wanna learn how to drive more customers to your traditional Biz using the internet – ‘WA’ is your knight in shining armour.
In a nutshell: the community is ideal for anyone and everyone wanting to make money online.
It’s your winning lotto ticket. You just need to cash it in!
But a word of warning:
Please get the hell outta here if you’re chasing lazy “Get-Rich-Quick” pipe dreams coz ‘WA’ ain’t for you.
To succeed as a member of ‘WA’, you WILL need to follow the training, implement it, and give your business substantial time to flourish.
There is none of this “cutting-corner” crap for the dollars to flow on the internet. Period.

8 Things I Hate:

- Once you upgrade to premium, there’s no going back to free starter level

I’ll elaborate on some Pros and Cons deeper into this review.
The Training, Tools & Services You Need…
The Training at a Quick Glance
You’ll have access to the following:
- Action & Task Based Certification or Affiliate Bootcamp Courses
- Live Training Classes Every Week
- Q & A Sessions
- Structured Classrooms
- Active Discussions on different Topics
- Video & Tutorial Training
Let’s see the training broken down…
‘Online Entrepreneur Certification’ (Level 1)
When you join ‘WA’ as a starter member, you’ll dive right into the free ‘Getting Started Level 1’ training consisting of 10 step-by-step video lessons.
These modules cover the basics of understanding affiliate marketing and the steps you need to follow for actually getting a Biz up and running.
Kyle has done a cracking job of taking you through the process of not just explaining and showing how affiliate marketing works.
But also getting your first WordPress blog set up using WA’s free SiteRubix website builder.
In my opinion, the 10 video lessons are so simple and easy to follow.
And you can quite easily start your new online Biz in not time at all (2 – 3 days max).
What I especially love about the free and also advanced training…
Is that Kyle provides an actionable checklist to complete at the end of each lesson to help you stay on track with your progress.
In my opinion, this accountability thing is an awesome idea because it gets you into the habit of moving forward with your Biz bit-by-bit each day.
I think without such an actionable plan, many newbies wouldn’t take WA’s training very seriously – which would be a big mistake.
My Complaints With The Level 1 Training
When it comes to “niche selection” (the most important lesson) – Kyle only shows you how to choose a niche around your hobby or passion.
Choosing a niche can run much deeper than that.
Like, rolling with a topic you have extensive knowledge on from your golden school years, previous jobs, and even problems you’ve faced in the past.
And as for the keyword research lesson, Kyle recommends WA’s in-house Jaaxy tool.
Which, unfortunately, has been drilling holes in my canoe for ages.
Some ‘WA’ members have also questioned Jaaxy’s metrics, so it’s not just my mind running wild.
Now, LongTailPro is my new #1 preferred keyword tool of choice because it’s slowly patching up the holes in my online Biz.
Also, Kyle doesn’t teach you how keyword research can be done using “free” and/or other paid tools like LongTailPro, for example.
I dunno about you, but I believe everyone should have a choice when it comes to keyword tools because there’s no “one size fits all”.
RECOMMENDED: grab Ian Pribyl’s ‘From Nothing’ Kindle for more in-depth guidance on niche-selection & keyword research!
But once WA’s free lessons are all done and dusted.
You have the option of upgrading to Premium – allowing you to continue building your Biz following advanced video training which covers:
Level #2: Building Your Own Traffic Producing Website
- Your Own Domain, Your Brand
- Move on Over, My Brand Has Arrived
- Creating Keyword Rich Content
- Setting up a Domain Specific Email Account
- The Traffic Breakdown
- Making Use of Visuals
- Understanding The Low Hanging Fruit
- Making Face as a Real Person
- Amplifying Your Productivity
- Boosting Your WA Ranks!
My Complaints With Level 2 Training
As far as lesson 10 goes…
With close to 2 million members…
WA becomes a place of “info overload” because some peeps are more concerned about their “WA rankings” rather than their actual “Google” ones.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s commendable that ‘WA’ folks have adopted the “Pay-It-Forward” mentality.
Because that’s what the community’s there for, at the end of the day.
But sometimes it gets too much and becomes overwhelming like a Facebook newsfeed in a way lol.
I just think some members need to rein it in a little and pay more attention to their online businesses, if I’m totally honest.
Level #3: Making Money
- Understanding The Money in Online Business
- Understanding Affiliate Programs & Networks
- Relevant Affiliate Programs Are Everywhere
- Adding Affiliate Links to Your Pages
- Instant Access to a Million Products
- Leveraging Product Reviews
- Getting Paid For Ads on Your Site
- Earning Pennies OR Dollars
- A Brilliant Way to Track & Understand Your Traffic
- With Help Comes Financial Success
My Complaint With Level 3 Training
While lesson 7 is a nice little money-maker, I’ve totally removed Google Adsense from my blog since the ads caused a terrible user experience.
I also disliked how the ads cluttered up my site and stole the limelight from my actual product recommendations.
Thanks to honest feedback from both WA’ers and members of the FIMP fam, they helped put things into perspective.
Producing value and recommendations for your visitors IS your #1 priority over making a few bucks from a bunch of ads.
Because, it’s gonna lead to bigger long-term success.
Level #4: Mastering Social Engagement
- What Does Social Engagement Mean to Your Business
- Making Your Website a Place to Engage
- Using Facebook The Right Way
- Pinterest & The Visual Social Hemisphere
- Incorpoarting a Sound Tweeting Campaign
- Google Plus or Minus
- The Benefit of Being Social at WA
- Make Your Campaigns Social Branding Animals
- Using The WA Social Community
- You Cannot be a Master or Everything
My Complaints With Level 4 Training
Don’t get me wrong…
Using social networks are a great way of getting your brand out, driving more blog traffic, and generally networking with folks within your niche.
But the biggest problem I’ve found over the years is that each channel, whether it’s Facebook, Pinterest or Twitter, etc, can take up so much of your time…
Time and effort that’s better invested in your actual online business – doing keyword research and writing blog content for more organic growth.
The other problem is that social media is constantly evolving, which makes platforms harder to keep up with.
Furthermore, platforms are full of tire kickers, in my experience.
Regardless of effort, my results were never anything to shout home about.
And as for lesson 6, Google Plus is no longer alive and kicking. So the video needs removing.
At the end of the day, I’m no fan of social media and you can still quite happily build a successful Biz without it.
Level #5: Achieving Maximum Success Through Content Creation
- Content is Your Business
- Setting up Google Webmaster Tools
- Improving Indexing Times & Speeds
- People Need to Read Your Content
- A Year is a Short Period of Time, Yet Big For Business
- Writing Within a Devised Plan Architecture
- Writing Your Content With Conversion Intent
- Injecting Comments With Intent
- Bing and Yahoo, They Are Still The 33%
- Articulating a Plan For The Months and Year Ahead
Overall, Kyle has done exceptionally well at delivering comprehensive step-by-step tutorials for creating a highly profitable affiliate marketing Biz…
Despite the Wealthy Affiliate cons I’ve highlighted.
It’s the type of high-quality training that most product creators’ fail to supply.
Or even if they do, they charge an arm and a leg for.
So consider yourself blessed when taking the plunge with ‘WA’.
But with that said, I do think Kyle needs to do training on advanced SEO methods, especially when it comes to the concept of *GASP* “backlinks“.
Backlinking seems to be a raw subject within ‘WA’ because some say you can rank just fine without them, and others say they’re a necessity.
The other thing is that Kyle doesn’t teach blog optin form creation or even the ins and outs of “email marketing” – which is a highly effective profit-producing strategy.
As for additional training, you’ve got access to:
These offer you the opportunity to ask and answer questions, watch extra video walk-through tutorials from Kyle and the community.
And also easily find the videos from Kyle’s training courses.
You’ll discover in-depth classroom topics on:
- Getting Started
- The Wealthy Affiliate – Affiliate Program
- Keyword, Niche, & Market Research
- Everything WordPress
- Authoring & Writing Content
- Search Engine Optimization
- Social Engagement & Marketing
- Website Development & Programming
- Local, Video, Email, & Pay Per Click Marketing
- The WA Platform
Live Video Classes
Every Friday, Jay (a highly successful member) hosts a webinar on succeeding in a certain area of your online Biz.
Also giving you the chance to engage in a ‘Live Q & A’ session – picking Jay’s brain at the end.
But if you can’t make his weekly live videos due to boozy nights out on the town…
Don’t sweat it because they’re recorded and accessible to you at anytime 24/7 – where you’ll pick heaps of golden nuggets.

Tools & Services at a Quick Glance
SiteRubix Website Builder:
As a WA starter member, you can build up to 2 WordPress blogs for free.
But as a Premium member, you’ll be able to build 25 of the bad boys!
Your website is gonna be the platform for creating a profitable online biz, and one that’s open for business 24/7/365!
When you get your very first free site up and running, you’ll also receive one heck of an AWESOME tool belt to assist with the phenomenal growth of your Biz.
But what cool SiteRubix features/services are available, huh?
- Support (which will be discussed shortly)
- WordPress Optimized Servers
- The Most Secure Hosting on The Web
- Full Redundancy
- Daily Backups
- 24/7 Website Monitoring
- Fully Managed
- Email & Forwarding
- Site Health Analyzing
- Website Auto-Login
Follow my lead, and let’s dive even deeper into to the state of the art SiteRubix features provided by Kyle and Carson.
To make life simple, I’m gonna walk you through the features as a “Premium” WA community member.
Automatically login to your WordPress blog and also see its progress – the number of posts, pages, comments, etc.
Amongst other cool aspects of your site.
Now, the 2 tools I absolutely love the most when it comes to the Manager, are: “View Details” and “SitePlus+”.
For starters, with “View Details”.
You can check out your website’s health stats…
Showing you what blog improvements need to be made for keeping both your visitors and Google happy.
Secondly, when it comes to “SitePlus+“.
You have the option to toggle and activate “SiteSSL” (HTTPS)” – this is an awesome feature that’s now a part of Google’s ranking factors.
Wealthy Affiliate throws this in with your membership at no extra cost.
Since switching my blog over to (HTTPS), I’ve noticed a rise in rankings and traffic to my blog.
The “SiteProtect” (Spam Blocker) also does an amazing job on your blog.
Because, it puts a stop to spam comments from bots and helps your website to run smoothly.
Using this feature, I’ve not had a single junk comment, and I no longer need to install spam blocking plugins such as Akismet.
“Site Speed” makes your website super fast at loading and also improves your Google rankings.
But ‘WA’ now gives you the choice of toggling on “EXTREME” which optimizes your site one step further for bigger gains and extra ranking power!
SiteRubix Website Builder
Use this to build 25 beautiful WordPress sites around different niches.
However, as a “free” member, 2 websites are your limit.
So it makes sense to upgrade if you wanna build multiple profitable sites down the road.
Content Writing Platform
It’s a great writing platform which not only enables you to easily write and publish WordPress blog content.
But you can add free images (from WA’s extensive image library) within your posts too.
When it comes to the writing part, you can create new posts based around either pre-made templates or ones you create yourself.
The idea behind the templates is that you set yourself writing goals for word, paragraph, and heading counts.
And you accomplish those goals for steering your website and online biz in the right direction.
The feature also saves your drafts and published articles, shows your website’s word-count AND how your efforts compare to other members.
My Complaints With The Content Writing Feature
But have you ever heard the term “sometimes less is more”?
Well, sadly, that’s the case with WA’s content writing platform because it does raise several unfixed issues.
Firstly, once you’ve written a piece of content and published to your WordPress blog.
The spacing between some sentences and paragraphs gets totally messed up – either content clumped together and/or spaced out too much.
It’s a real pain in the ass because you then have to spend time using the “html text” editor in WordPress to add and/or removing spacing code.
Since, the “visual” option doesn’t solve the problem.
Secondly, the content platform doesn’t fully support the WordPress kitchen sink and other editorial features.
For example, there’s no option to change text colour and you can’t select categories, tags, and featured images for your posts.
Basically meaning you must do those tasks within WordPress – publishing each blog post twice – unnecessarily making life complicated.
The content platform also comes with a built-in grammar/spell checker.
So you can ensure your content reads perfectly without mistakes before you hit that green “Publish to my WordPress blog” button.
My Complaints With The Checker
I’d love nothing more than to tell Grammarly to eat its heart out lol.
But WA’s grammar checker is far from perfect because sometimes it skims past spelling mistakes.
I know this for a fact because I use Grammarly as a safety net.
And at times, WA’s tool suggests phrases to help better word your content, that actually make no sense at all.
Furthermore, I’m not exactly keen on wording my content “the American way”.
So Wealthy Affiliate must program their spell checker to cater for us Brits too. 😉
Additionally, the content tool provides a database of over 1 million high-resolution photos from Pexels, Pixabay, and Unsplash, covering a range of topics.
Not only are they 100% free to use on your blog (without any attributions).
But you can crop the images and they also get compressed by the new in-built technology for helping to maintain the fast speed of your website.
BUT if there are no pics that don’t quite take your fancy, you can easily use the tool to upload, drag n’ drop your own blog images.
Domain Name Platform
This offers you the chance to purchase a personal domain for your website using WA’s own (competitively priced) domain registrar.
‘WA’ even automatically connects your new domain to your website for you.
You simply purchase your domain, choose the site you want it on, and ‘WA’ takes care of the rest. Simples!
Affiliate Programs (New Platform)
This newly-released time-saving feature makes life so much easier.
Because, it means you no longer need to manually search Google for affiliate programs in your niche.
You can do it right within ‘WA’.
See an example of one I found in the “travel” industry using WA’s new tool.
Not only does this tool enable you to easily locate affiliate programs using its search bar, popular categories, keywords, and trending opportunities sections…
But breaks down the results showing high commission vs. high percentage vs. top rated programs to apply for.
What’s especially cool is that you can have a cheeky glance at the metrics of an affiliate program before deciding whether it’s gonna be the right fit.
Jaaxy Keyword Tool (LITE)
With the Jaaxy keyword tool (“LITE” version).
You can use it to find low-competition and traffic-generating long tail keywords to create content around and get Google rankings + traffic.
My Complaint With Using Jaaxy
Jaaxy requires an overhaul because the metrics are inaccurate, especially when compared to LongTailPro’s metrics.
The biggest problems I’ve faced with Jaaxy is that I’ve either published and ranked blog posts on page 1 of Google around keywords that get little to no traffic.
Or around keywords that are extremely difficult to rank for (despite Jaaxy stating differently).
Don’t get me wrong…
Jaaxy makes the keyword research a total breeze and offers some decent features that go hand-in-hand with your research activities and website’s progress.
BUT what’s the point in using a keyword tool that fails to accomplish its primary objective (i.e. pinpointing “the right” keywords), huh?
24/7 Support – Pure Freakin’ AWESOMENESS!
If you ask me, the 24/7/365 live help and support at ‘WA’ is simply AMAZEBALLS!
You’ll never be alone inside the community because you receive TONS of support from everyone via various channels.
Whatever you need help with – folks are there for you around the clock as your safety net.
‘WA’ is like a cyber version of Sin City… It never sleeps!
The ways you can easily get assistance from inside the “Support Center” tab…
#1 – Kyle and Carson both invite you with open arms to message them anytime from inside your members’ area.
The same applies to any member of the ‘WA’ fam because everyone can freely private message one another for assistance.
My Complaint With PMs
However, numerous member PMs go unanswered because Kyle and Carson are a two-man army getting swamped by messages.
Don’t get me wrong, the pair work their socks off day and night to assist the community.
But there’s only so much 2 peeps can do inside 24-hour windows.
What the A-Team needs to do is hire an actual “customer support team” consisting of seasoned internet marketers to help save the day.
The Support Options Continued…
#2 – Just like Facebook, you can post on profiles to connect with other members.
#3 – There are a total of 13 classrooms to ask questions in.
Each one covers a different topic, and members will always respond to your questions.
#4 – Live Chat is simply Amazing because you can instantly get your questions answered by other members.
Kyle, Carson, and Jay regularly chime in too.
This is my #1 preferred method for support, since the conversation feed is continuously active.
Although, occasionally I do post questions in the classrooms for additional guidance.
Believe me, even the pros get stuck sometimes lol.
#5 – Site Support. Well, what can I say, it’s nothing short of incredible!!
Whenever you have a technical issue with any of your WordPress websites.
You shoot a PM to Site Support, and the amazing team will resolve your issue extremely quick.
The guys here are very helpful and friendly, and will ensure that your website runs smoothly.
Everything you need for online success truly is under one roof with ‘WA’!
I don’t think you can argue with that, buddy.
How to Make Money With Wealthy Affiliate When You Join
Important note: you will be required to put in the donkey-work if you want REAL online success.
Because, it doesn’t just happen at the wave of Harry Potter’s magic wand, and that’s a true fact.
The 2 ways you can cash in with ‘WA’:
#1: Follow Your Passion…
Whatever you’re passionate about in life or even if there’s a hobby or interest you have, you can successfully create a long-term online business around it.
This will be classed as your chosen “niche” and where your epic journey will begin.
‘WA’ will show you EXACTLY how it’s done, step-by-step.
#2: Participate in The ‘Affiliate Bootcamp’…
In my opinion, Wealthy Affiliate’s, affiliate program + Bootcamp offer you an amazing opportunity to earn a serious passive income.
There’s even the chance to qualify for a free 4-day “all-expenses-paid” trip to Las Vegas each year.
Where you get to hang out with uber-successful WA’ers!
==> Learn More About WA’s Las Vegas Incentive Here!
But some words of warning on Bootcamp:
However, the Affiliate Bootcamp is A LOT harder than it sounds.
If it’s beyond your capabilities to invest a minimum of 20 hours per week, and publish at least 4 blog posts weekly for the next 16 – 20 months like a lean mean content machine…
Then Bootcamp is NOT for you.
My Complaints With Affiliate Bootcamp
Furthermore, you’re gonna be competing against 100s of other Bootcampers.
Since, almost all (including myself) publish the same reviews on scammy Clickbank and Clickbetter products.
Then comes stiff competition from “launch jackers” – usually unethical affiliate marketers gaming Google with poor and “biased” reviews.
And then there’s competition from pro affiliate marketers offering “bonus stacks” and who seriously know their sh*t when it comes to advanced SEO.
But don’t let the truth put you off lol.
However, if you work like a trooper with Bootcamp, you absolutely CAN beat your competitors’ – creating a full-time income for yourself.
Just don’t expect it to be a walk in the park is all I’m sayin’.
My sincere advice before taking the plunge with Bootcamp:
The way I see it, WA’s Bootcamp is primarily for those with some degree of internet and affiliate marketing experience.
And who also have a true passion for helping peeps in the “make money online” niche.
If you don’t fit the criteria as a newbie…
Then I highly suggest sticking with WA’s ‘Online Entrepreneur Certification’ course and building a profitable Biz around a topic you ARE passionate about instead.
What is The Cost of Wealthy Affiliate, is it Free?
When you join Wealthy Affiliate as a Starter member…
You’ll get 1 WordPress site to build and 10 basic lessons for getting an online Biz up and running for $0.
Which, means you have free access to a certain extent.
But you won’t have the full benefits of WA’s advanced tools/services, training, and support – which you’ll definitely NEED access to for success.
Which brings me to my next point: the costs to go Premium for UNLIMITED access to everything ‘WA’ has to offer…
- Monthly Premium = $49
- Yearly Premium = $495
So there are definitely payment options to suit all budgets.
In addition, buying a (.com, .net or .org) domain name for your blog from ‘WA’ will cost from $13.99 – $15.99 per year, which is peanuts.
When it comes to WA’s Jaaxy keyword tool, you get a special “LITE” version chucked in with your Premium membership.
But if you want extra Jaaxy features, it’s gonna cost $19/month for PRO and $49/month for ENTERPRISE plans.
Now The Best Part: Wealthy Affiliate Success Stories…
If wondering if WA actually works…
YES, it flipping well does because a lot of folks are making money following Kyle’s training.
For example, see these guys n’ gals here who have already made anywhere from $100 all the way up to almost $5K!
And then there are bigger success stories from Super Affiliates who have worked hard for years.
For example, here’s Eddy Salomon who eraned a staggering $10,000 in the month of August 2018!
And there are MANY more WA success stories where these came from!
So YES, you can absolutely earn a life-changing passive income IF you work your butt off for a fair amount of time.
The Golden Question: Is Wealthy Affiliate Legit or a Scam?
I’m sure by now, it’s as clear as day that ‘WA’ is 100% legitimate.
Not at any time do Kyle and Carson (or any member) ever claim that ‘WA’ is an easy-as-pie way of racking up the cash fast online.
Leave that myth for the sleazeball fraudsters lurking around the web to sell.
Those who brand ‘WA’ as LEGIT know the true value of it.
Because they’ve taken ‘WA’ for a free spin and/or made some dough online following the training to the letter and using the tools + support at their disposal.
As for the peeps who label ‘WA’ as a SCAM, it’s a 2-camp combo.
Camp #1: there are the lazy bum asses who take very little to no action and expect to rake in a MILLION dollars overnight.
OK, slight income exaggeration. But you get the gist, yeah?
Camp #2: the haters who are sick of ‘WA’ plastered all over the web from affiliates blogging “hey, come check out my #1 recommendation”.
The bottom line: Those who earn – EARN.
Those who don’t – spit their dummies out and scream “SCAM” at the top of their lungs like giant cry babies.
My Final Take: Is Wealthy Affiliate Worth it?…
Absolutely, 100% yes, without a shadow of a doubt.
Despite numerous unresolved Wealthy Affiliate community issues (I’m really peeved at) that desperately need Kyle and Carson’s FULL attention before rolling out new features…
I genuinely believe ‘WA’ is one of the best, if not, THE best and biggest affiliate marketing and blogging training platform/community in the cyber world.
Is it gonna be challenging? YES.
Are there gonna be times when you wanna throw in the towel and chuck ya laptop out the window? YES.
But if you leverage WA’s resources, and work your tail off for as long as it takes…
I promise you’ll see results – eventually earning a life-changing passive income.
If you’re prepared to go “all in” on yourself, then I invite you to…

I’ll be seeing you inside the community…
Your Friend, Neil 😀
If you have any questions or thoughts on WA that you’d like to share, we’d love to hear your comments below…
I have tried registering for wealthy affiliate but it proved abortive, I think is not working in my country Nigeria.
My sincere apologies, but WA isn’t available to Nigerians.
Please add me to your email list.
So sorry, but I have no email list set up at the moment lol. But I’ll create one and add an opt-in form to this website at some point in 2020. So watch this space…
Thanks for your honest review. All the reviews that I’ve read have always said only positive, and that is not realistic. Like you, I have had issues using the Jaaxy tool, I find it’s not giving me correct data. However, I really want a free tool, I’m not ready to pay just yet.
One of the biggest issues I have is with site comments. No one wants to pass on a comment which usually results in me getting completely rubbish comments. I have spoken to Kyle about is and there is supposed to be an update coming soon which will hopefully solve some of the issues.
No problem, Hollie! 🙂
I was once guilty of hanging around in the “biased WA review” gang. My bad lol. Sorry to hear you’ve also had issues with Jaaxy, and makes me wonder how WA members are having success with it.
But I hear what you’re saying about paid keyword tools because they can add to your costs, making things difficult if you’re on a tight budget. Which is all the more reason why WA MUST fix Jaaxy’s accuracy issues.
As for Site Comments, it has been problematic. But with that said, some WA’ers do provide awesome in-depth comments. It’s great that Kyle/Carson are working on improvements though.
This is a solid review of Wealthy Affiliate. I have first-hand experience with WA and I believe they are a good place for newbies to learn how to build sites and make money with them.
But if someone really is on their bones and can’t afford any money at all, then they should focus on making spare change online and then use that to pay for the WA membership. If that makes sense.
Much appreciated, Nate! 🙂
That’s great, I couldn’t agree with you more on WA (despite the community having some unresolved problems).
Yeah, I think I know where you’re coming from with the funds lol. If broke folks are to gather up the funds for WA, the best money-making options (in my opinion) would be to sell stuff on ebay or try one of Gary Vaynerchuck’s fave methods… garage sale flipping. There are ‘GPT’ opps too, but it’ll take months to earn decent cash from those things.
But each to their own, I guess.
Wealthy Affiliate is the best place to be to create your online business. It has a comprehensive training to help you from creating an online business to scaling it. You also get the opportunity to join affiliate programs and promote their products on your website. It’s never easy to find and join affiliate programs of your niche. But with this new feature it is made easy.
I like your post because it has given a lot of insights about WA. Especially, about the training.
Having tried heaps of programs since 1999, I fully agree that WA is unmatched from every angle.
WA’s new affiliate programs feature sure is a godsend because it comes with so many advantages.
Glad you found a lot of value in my review. 😀
What an awesome review Neil! It is sad that I still encounter people who say that Wealthy Affiliate is a scam and fraud and that means that there are people who still did not give it a chance.
I am a WA member for nearly 2 years and I don’t need any proof that this platform works because soon I will quit my 9-5 job thanks to them. It is not easy especially at the beginning but with hard work and persistence but it definitely pays off in the long run.
I guess you can’t please everyone in the world of online money making. But as you say, those who call WA a scam, didn’t stick around long enough. Maybe they thought WA is too overwhelming, too tough or just lack belief and work ethic. Who knows.
But just like you, Daniel, those who fully commit to WA (without giving up) and work hard for long enough, will get the results they want and need. Good on ya and congratulations are in order. You fully deserve that financial freedom. 🙂
Thanks for the detailed and in-depth review post on Wealthy Affiliate.
I love to share my own experience…
I am also a WA member since November 2016. I was very afraid to join WA as you mentioned in your cons free starter membership is not available to India. When I did my research about WA in 2016 (I lost a lot of money to scams and I am just earning $150 Monthly). I reduced my expenses and saved money and waited for the Black Friday offer, as you know very well we can save $50+ by going yearly on black Friday.
Without any doubt I straight away signed up for Yearly membership. Where I am now?
To make the long story short. I am a full-time blogger since December 2017. Thanks to WA!
Wishing you great success!
It’s a pleasure, Paul!
Good for you, I’m happy that you’ve stuck with WA for so long! 🙂
I think when it comes to internet and affiliate marketing training courses, in general, most newbies are a little scared and skeptical because some have more than likely chucked money into sub-par stuff and also scams just like you.
Indeed, the WA Black Friday sale is nothing short of INCREDIBLE because it’s just so cheap for the amount of value you get out of Kyle and Carson’s community! You definitely did the right thing.
Congrats on your achievement, man! Thanks for your story, it will surely inspire folks here.
Cheers, here’s to your continued success too, Paul!
I’ve spent a great deal of time searching over the internet the past three weeks – trying to find a program that will help me arrange and build my first business. The Wealthy Affiliate has come up on numerous occasions during this search.
I’m starting to lean towards it as an option due to the support and help available there, and the fact that they seem to have a free membership. Have you often relied on the help given there and how effective has it been in helping you build up your own business?
We certainly have our work cut out when it comes to the internet lol.
But with so many training courses online, it’s sometimes hard to pick out the high-quality and legit ones from the shoddy ones and also scams. But with WA, you’ve stumbled upon a goldmine, that’s for sure!
That’s the beauty of WA, it allows you to start risk-free without entering your credit card details. And as for support, the community ALWAYS hears my plead for help and comes running to the rescue, whether that’s the members, the website support team or Kyle and Carson.
I sure have had my money’s worth from support, and it’s been EXTREMELY effective for helping to push my online Biz forward, especially in the early days when I first got started!
I can’t stress enough how important “support” is, whether it’s from WA or any other platform.
When I started back in early 2015, I knew nothing about internet marketing. Three years later I learned a lot, not only from WA, but most of it I did learn from there. They were the stepping stone to my success.
Today, I’m more experienced and have a few affiliate sites that are earning me money, but I’m still a member of WA and plan to keep it that way as they keep adding new fresh content and are always up-to-date with the latest technologies. Cheers!
You started 2 years after me then, Jurgen! 😛 lol.
That’s AWESOME, dude! One of the great things about WA is that ANYONE can learn to build a successful online Biz from ground zero. The other thing is that you never stop learning inside WA because not only is the training updated by Kyle when it needs to be but there’s always additional training from community members and the weekly webinars from Jay on various strategies.
I’m happy to hear about your success as a WA member! Indeed, WA is always on top of the game from every angle!
Thanks for the content.
As a premium member at WA, I can absolutely vouch for this article. I’m not paid to say this, but WA so far has allowed me to explore website design and content creation at a level I haven’t even realised.
I’ve been able to make a good looking website at minimal cost, have gotten training to do so that will help me out in every level. From starting to making money to optimising my content, the training has opened up my mind to that of even an actual degree level.
The community at times can be a bit too much for me, but I’m slowly getting used to it. Honestly, I’d prefer it to be much more personal than the community style it is. Though on the flip side it has allowed me to get help quickly and some outside perspective and ideas.
No worries, Zachary!
That’s brilliant! From experience, trying to build a WordPress site from scratch and writing content without the proper training and support is as tough as hell. But WA sure provides and also helps us to make sense of all the puzzle pieces we need for success.
Hey, who needs an Internet Marketing qualification anyway, when WA teaches us for MUCH cheaper? 😉 lol.
Yeah, I see where you’re coming from with the overwhelming part but it’s just a case of prioritizing your tasks. First, concentrate on publishing content on your blog and then interact with the community – asking and answering questions, and offering your insights on topics, etc. Your website should be your #1 priority, ALWAYS!
In my opinion, and also like you say, it’s much better to have a community than 1-on-1 support. But with that said, personal support from Kyle, Carson, the website support team, and also community members is still awesome to have!
I loved reading your review about Wealthy Affiliate. Being a member myself, I can testify that everything you said is true and then some.
It truly is an amazing platform that allows ordinary people to learn how to make a regular income online — and I don’t know where I would be without it today.
I highly urge anyone that is willing to work and wants to earn money online, to give WA a shot. 🙂
Cheers, much appreciated, man!
With the number of AWESOME changes happening within the WA community so fast, I can’t update my review quick enough! HAHA.
I can certainly see the future getting brighter and brighter for ALL WA members. 😀
I totally agree! Even if you don’t have a single clue about Affiliate Marketing, blogging, and Internet Marketing, in general, Kyle and Carson will soon show you the ropes and help you to turn a profit from your hobby/passion.
Glad to hear the community has had a positive impact on you and thanks for your recommendation too!
I have been a premium member of the WA community for 5 years and I should say that this has been one of the best decisions of mine. Today I own 3 successful websites and also earn well while sitting in my home.
I think the video tutorials provided by them makes it a lot easier to set up your website and after that it is your writing skills that make it a success, moreover they are always there to help you if you get stuck at any point or have any query.
I would also definitely recommend WA to someone who is stepping their first step in this field as it helped me a lot in my case.
WOW, such a long time, Hari!
But congratulations, and super well done on building multiple profitable online businesses! That’s what we LOVE to hear!
I couldn’t agree with you more on the amazing resources and support available to us inside the community. They really do make a HUGE difference, as you’ve just demonstrated with your successful sites.
When you leverage everything Kyle and Carson have to offer and work hard consistently, there’s nothing you can’t accomplish online.
I’m happy for you, and thanks for sharing your experience as well as giving WA a big thumb’s up too, man! 😀
I’ve read quite a number of Wealthy Affiliate reviews but I’ve not yet seen one as exhaustive as this one. I especially liked your including tools and services thoroughly in the review, especially matters from the Dashboard and the website part. This lets me know how powerful WA is.
But I have a question: Should you be given the chance once again, would you still sign up for WA? What did you not like about this platform?
Thanks for the compliments, much appreciated, Akoli! 🙂
I think it’s important to highlight everything WA has to offer in great detail because it allows folks to see the value in WA and what they’ll get for success.
1: If I turned back the clocks, I would certainly join the WA community without a doubt. It’s the best decision I’ve ever made throughout my entire Internet Marketing journey since 1999.
2: There are only a couple of things I disliked about WA. Firstly, some folks discuss unrelated personal topics. And secondly, a heck of a lot of stuff gets posted by the community on a daily basis.
But do you know something?…
These dislikes have actually turned into LIKES now because I realized two things:
A: I think we all need to read about topics and hear people’s stories we can relate because not only do they inspire us in some ways, but we build long-lasting relationships with some of those folks.
B: Yes, there’s a lot of content shared inside WA, but it’s all HELPFUL because it keeps us moving forward on the right track.
At the end of the day, WA is a community of “real people” encouraging one another to succeed. Without a community to inspire and help us ticking along, creating a business would turn into a real struggle, in my opinion.
As with any platform, some folks will see the negatives with WA. But once you see the whole picture, they actually become POSITIVES.
Hope this answers your questions, bud.
Wow, thanks for the super extensive review of Wealthy Affiliate! I am already a member but if I weren’t you would definitely have me sold. I love the new site content portion of WA that allows me to create my articles, check for spelling and grammar issues, and insert pictures all in one place.
When you first started using WA about how long was it before you started to see an income from it?
Thanks for your insight!
That’s awesome! Glad to know my review has worked its magic LOL.
But in all seriousness, I’m with you on WA’s “SiteContent” feature because it makes life so much easier as a blogger. Before the writing tool came along, we had to search for spellcheckers and images in other places, which was time-consuming. But WA has now fixed this problem. 🙂
It took me just a few months to earn my first commissions from Amazon and other affiliate programs – following WA’s training and blogging. But that was way back in 2013. It is possible to make some money within a few months today. But to earn a real FULL-TIME income, you’re looking at a good 12 months of commitment.
Neil a great, comprehensive review of Wealthy Affiliate there were a few great reminders in here for me as an existing member. I like the way you highlight that initially, it can feel a little overwhelming as a new member however once you spend some time in the community you feel that members help and interest is sincere. I joined for the online community, I was needing support to get my ‘business MOJO’ back a year or so ago.
Now I’m just loving the keyword Jaaxy Lite membership included in WA membership. It just keeps getting better and better with the regular training and features update.
Why, Thank You, Fleur! 😀
To be honest, any training platform is overwhelming when newbies first gain access. But like you say, it just takes a little time to familiarize yourself. Having a “community” to fall back on sure plays an essential role for success, and I hope your mojo has well and truly returned.
I think not having a group of like-minded individuals to connect with is one of the worst things because we all need that helping hand from time-to-time, especially the encouragement and inspiration to go with it. Sometimes, all it takes is a single post from a WA community member to give you that spark for pushing forward.
One of the best things about having Jaaxy Lite included with our membership is that it saves us a bunch of dollars. However, you can upgrade to Jaaxy Pro or Enterprise for additional features if you wish. But in my opinion, the Lite version is substantial for newbies for getting their online businesses off the ground.
WA sure is a state-of-the-art platform that’s never gonna go stale. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for WA and us members! EEK! LOL.
Your review is fantastic, I enjoyed reading it! I was a member of WA last year but after 1 month I quit because I could not afford to pay another $49 and worse $359 because I do not make that kind of money.
Living in Africa is kind of hindering on how to go forward, I failed to narrow or zero in on which niche I should promote/sell. I created a post there asking if there were any Africans to get some help on what they are working on and got no response at all, not even anyone from my country: Uganda. What would you advise? I was even more irked that I paid for a website for a whole year and never gained anything out of it.
Have you done a review on Yoonla Evolve, I joined last month but I don’t seem to get any progress!
Thanks a lot, glad you loved it! 🙂
I’m so sorry to hear you didn’t have the funds to continue with WA, my friend. After being broke myself numerous times (due to a low-paid job) in the past, I can understand your frustrations. 🙁
I guess not many Africans are building online businesses due to being in your shoes. And at the same time, scams and costly programs don’t exactly make things any easier for you either.
Also, don’t beat yourself up over the website thing because you can always get a new one on the cheap in the future.
Yes, I have reviewed Yoonla. Although it can be a good way to get started for the newbie without needing skills, it’s extremely limited to the “make money online” niche (which means you can’t build a business around your passion) and you’ll also need to chuck a lot of money into advertising if you are to stand a chance of earning an income with Yoonla.
My absolute best advice if you don’t have much cash to spare is to join Free Internet Marketing Project (FIMP) – A 100% free step-by-step training course created by Ian Pribyl (a fellow WA community member). Ian’s course will be a big help to you!
I signed up for your program around 5-5-18. Since the doctors have found four infections in my blood and I am so sick I can’t do this program. I have tried to find your phone number several times but did not look into this spot until today. You said there was a 60-day guarantee and I am within that time period.
SO PLEASE RETURN MY $231 because I desperately need it for medical bills which will not be covered by Medicare.
I also need to notify VSN that I have never used their program and to stop charging me.
CAN YOU GIVE ME THEIR PHONE NUMBER?
I HOPE THIS ISN’T A SCAM SINCE NEITHER ONE OF YOU HAVE A PHONE NO.
Sorry to hear about your health issues and tight finances. 🙁 Our health always comes first.
However, I think you’re referring to one of the scam reviews I’ve published on this site because WA doesn’t offer a 60-day money back guarantee and WA also makes it easy to contact the owners about your account from inside the community.
If you could name the opportunity you invested your money in, I can help you better.
Your review was very thorough, and even though I’m a member of Wealthy Affiliate, I still enjoyed reading the whole thing. There’s so much value in the membership, sometimes, we can overlook nuggets we have access to!
I completely agree that it’s the greatest thing online. I was a nomad, learning internet marketing independently for three years before stumbling upon WA.
I had taken courses and spent thousands of dollars to learn marketing and sales leveraging the internet. As a result, I spent a lot of money, but had little to show for it.
When I joined WA, things started to happen for me. I quickly jumped from the free membership to the paid membership within days because I could see instantly the value they offered.
In comparison to other programs, the training “makes sense”. I’ve also read loads of success stories: from single digit successes to millions of dollar success stories.
I’m so grateful that they’ve offered the program for the last 11+ years at the same price! Most times, companies will elevate the price when they have social proof. Even after millions of students becoming members of WA, they’ve continued to increase the value, but maintained the same price.
Fantastic, glad to hear it! 😀
I certainly agree on the amount of value inside the community, it’s incredible! And I do agree that (both newbies and experienced) marketers can sometimes miss important components for success. I guess it doesn’t help with so much info available online for building businesses. But WA puts us on a clear path and provides the simple building blocks we need.
WOW, seems like you have plenty of marketing experience under your belt! WA can definitely help you brush up on your skills as well as teach you new ones for building a profitable business.
Unfortunately, when you jump from course-to-course, it can cost you an arm and a leg, and still resulting in an unclear direction with so much info absorbed, like you say. When you’re suffering from “info overload”, it’s impossible to know how/where to get started.
But I’m so glad to hear that WA came to your rescue, and also Well Done on taking quick action!
I do agree on the “making sense” part too because Kyle walks you through the exact steps (in the right order), which, for some reason, a number of training platforms fail to do. For example, some affiliate and internet marketing training programs teach you how to build a website first and choose a niche second. How the heck does that make sense?! LOL.
I’m sure you’re gonna read heaps more WA member success stories in the coming months and years too. 😉
The price point of WA sure is amazing! I’ve been a member since 2013 (when the price was $47/month). But fast forward to today and the cost is $49/month (still under $50). Yeah, it’s increased by a couple of dollars (LOL), but it’s more of a tactical move for Kyle and Carson.
And like you say, it doesn’t matter how many updates and improvements that WA goes through, the monthly and annual fees are set in stone. I guess this is another reason why WA is a cut above the rest, huh?
I have never heard that there are huge systems that have owners taking their time to interact with the members.
The ones I had heard ended up being lies as the owners never helped a single person.
I like the vibe of wealthy affiliate gives off and I am surely going to work with it for my affiliate marketing endeavors. Thanks a lot for the enlightening insight.
I had joined some training programs (prior to finding WA) where the owners made the effort to engage with their members in forums. But today, maybe not so much. At least Kyle, Carson, and Jay (another successful WA trainer) do chime in “daily” and engage with the community via live chat, private messaging, posts, and questions.
It’s one of the awesome aspects that makes the WA community so refreshing to be a part of.
Indeed, WA sure is a shining beacon that stands out from the crowd online. 🙂
That’s awesome, I wish you every success, man!
It’s a pleasure!
I’ve been a Wealthy Affiliate member for 3 years now and I love it. I used to be with a competing company (I won’t mention the name) who also provided great training and resources but their site builder was a bit primitive and you could only host one site per account with them. With WA, you can host 50.
While the training and hosting are fantastic, the beating heart of WA is the ever-helpful community. There’s an overriding optimism and can-do attitude there that you seldom see anywhere else.
Good on ya, Gary!
Yeah, it’s probably best to leave out the WA competitor’s name because we don’t want to shame them now, do we? 😉 LOL.
That’s the thing with some internet marketing platforms – they give you access to awesome training/support resources, but fall short when it comes to other services and tools.
It really sucks that the program in question only gave you 1 website!! If you wanna build multiple websites and branch out with your online business, then you’re pretty much screwed. And I very much doubt that one person could create multiple accounts too.
So it seems like you made the right choice switching to WA. Imagine the success you could have with 50 sites across a variety of niches! Totally mind-blowing!
I agree, the WA community goes above and beyond with every resource it has to offer.
What a great review of Wealthy Affiliate.
I gotta say that becoming a member of WA has been one of the wisest decisions I could have ever made.
I have picked up so much information and have my websites finally being indexed in search engines properly which I never would have learned if not for being a member.
Much appreciated, Wayne! 😀
I’m happy to hear it! I think once you’ve tried a number low-grade programs and scams, it makes you appreciate the value inside WAY even more. WA is the best place to be for online success, there’s no doubt about it.
That’s awesome – Well Done, that man! It just proves that the blogs, training, and tools from WA really do work.
I began looking for different ways to make money online back in 2014 and fell into scam after scam and time-wasting real offers that could never actually generate a viable profit. After a couple of years of very limited success, I took it as a sign that the fabled internet money might be out of my reach.
I joined Wealthy Affiliate about 4 months ago now as my last attempt to create a profitable online business. Since my initial free website days I’ve come so far and have actually started to take in advertisement commissions ( no affiliate revenue yet 🙁 However, unlike all the other programs and offers I followed over the years it is clear to me that with the continued effort this program has the ability to generate real profits.
One thing I was a little confused about was your reference to “Donkey Work.” What is Donkey Work?
Thanks for super complete information,
I feel your pain because I’ve been there myself. 🙁 In fact, many newbies have lost money down the drain with scams, and no doubt, they felt the same way you did about cyberspace.
That’s super awesome, I’m happy for you! Hey, you’re earning some money from ads, so that’s a great start! Some newbie affiliates following the wrong paths outside of WA are more than likely struggling to make their first cent on the web.
Continue following the WA training and pushing your blog forward, and you will earn the full-time income you deserve from both displaying ads and promoting affiliate products/services on your website.
HAHA! As for donkey work, I mean that you must be prepared to “work hard” if you’re gonna see any results.
Great review! I am a Wealthy Affiliate member but if I wasn’t I certainly would have been keen on reading what you have to say. 🙂
As an existing member, I love reading other member reviews because it’s always great to be reminded of how much amazing value one gets by being a member.
The thing that impresses me most about WA is how involved the owners, Kyle and Carson are. That is something I’ve yet to find anywhere else on the web.
They truly care about their members and their success and they are continually working to improve the platform too. I’ve been reading all the teasers about the imminent new release and all improvements that are coming are just phenomenal.
I appreciate the compliments, Mark! 😀
I agree, and there are heaps of WA reviews to keep you busy reading for a whole lifetime lol.
Indeed, both Kyle and Carson really do put 110% effort into helping folks and continually improving WA to make it the top internet marketing community. There some marketers who do make the effort when it comes to support with their platforms, but don’t always go above and beyond like the WA co-founders.
Tell me about it, man!! There are always new exciting updates rolled at WA to help the community members’ become more and more successful.
I completely agree with you, wealthy affiliate is such a helpful and great tool for a beginner especially, I recently joined and I am loving the support of the community plus there is a keyword research tool, I could not ask for more.
I would highly recommend this one for anyone out there looking to start an online enterprise.
Brilliant, WA never fails to impress! And speaking of the keyword tool, Kyle and Carson recently replaced the original research tool with Jaaxy “LITE” which is a much better and more powerful research platform (with extra features). Another awesome reason for newbie/experienced marketers to join the community.
I totally agree with everything you’ve outlined here – I joined Wealthy Affiliate just over a year ago and have found it an absolutely brilliant community – everyone is so helpful and there is so much training and information. Every question I’ve ever had has been answered through the community – in my opinion, it’s well worth the money!
That’s Amazing, Louise!
Happy to hear you’re having a blast at WA, and I wish you HUGE success with your biz!
In my opinion, WA is unmatched. 🙂
Neil, some might say that my comment is biased, as like you I am a WA member as well. But I can see your so positive viewpoint on WA, as I have tested this platform myself, and it’s all true.
Like you, I initially joined for free, as I didn’t know whether all the tons of good reviews I read about WA were true. Lo and behold, two years down the line, I am still with WA, and have upgraded my membership to Premium. I would not part with $359 every year if I didn’t see the point, as I don’t have money to waste.
The one thing I do not use amongst all the tools available on WA, is the Live Chat, as I find it one of the aspects which are still overwhelming for me, even after two years of being an active member there.
Do you use Live Chat? Do you find it useful, or as you say, do the chats end up following the personal routes of what people are having for dinner or whether it has snowed in that part of the country?
Thank you in advance.
Hey, if WA is living up to your expectations, and in fact, going way beyond them, then you have every right to share a “biased” opinion on the platform. 🙂
WA has certainly proved to be trustworthy and worth every penny. It’s also awesome to know that you’ve been a part of a community for so long. Like me, you’re probably a part of the furniture by now lol.
I guess live chat can feel overwhelming at times with so many members jumping on board, but I guess you’ll just have to type faster (LOL) or simply pick n’ choose the conversations you have with others. But you also have the option of simply just following invaluable conversations without contributing. It’s completely your choice.
HAHA – Yeah, I definitely find live chat useful because you’ll often find Kyle, Carson, Jay, and other successful WAers chiming in to answer newbie questions and sharing their overall thoughts on various marketing topics.
In my opinion, I think it’s great to connect with WA members on more personal levels because you can make new friends, plus it gives you a break from discussing marketing. Sometimes you’ve gotta let your hair down so you can recharge the batteries.
Reading about personal stuff only becomes frustrating when some members create whole blog posts in WA and they kinda mask the important stuff that you wanna learn about.
But it’s no biggie once you learn to focus on building your biz.
I want to know if the WA package also has an email autoresponder integrated into it. Also, I am in Nigeria, are Nigerians welcomed to WA.
Unfortunately, WA doesn’t offer an autoresponder service. Nigerians can join the community but they can’t get free accounts and must go premium right away.
I dunno if someone has asked this question. Is WA’s offer for niche website building? Lurn Insider has the feature related to that and has 20k free articles to copy and paste into the website. Need to know before I join WA.
Indeed, Wealthy Affiliate provides you with free WordPress niche websites and also gives you all the training, tools, and support for turning them into successful online businesses.
As for the “copy & paste” articles that you’re on about with LI, that’s definitely a big NO NO because no website will ever get Google rankings for having “duplicate” content. It’s an outdated technique that no longer works when it comes to SEO.
Each piece of content on your blog must be of high quality and unique if you want free organic traffic from the search engines, and that’s exactly what WA teaches. 🙂
Personally, I think Wealthy Affiliate has great training on SEO but they don’t cover a lot about Advanced Paid Traffic.
I don’t see they teach about Facebook Ads, Native Ads, Solo Ads, and Mobile Ads. With SEO, it’s really hard to get fast results and sometimes we target the wrong audiences. I hope they will add more Paid Traffic sources in the future.
WA does an amazing job at showing folks how to create successful online businesses. If you go back through Kyle’s training, you will see that he has created a whole phase on PPC advertising with Bing, Yahoo, and Google.
As for solo ads, they are extremely expensive to buy and aren’t always guaranteed to be effective, so I don’t see WA teaching that subject anytime soon. But there are community discussions and posts on solo ads that will help you.
In addition, Jay has done numerous webinars on Facebook ads, and again, there are numerous FB trainings created by other community members. And also, there’s yet more community training on other forms of paid advertising. So a TON of training is available on advanced traffic methods and it’s easy to find within the community as well. 😀
I do agree that SEO is slow, and that’s all Google’s doing. And if folks follow Kyle’s training correctly and also use the right keywords, then there’s no reason why “targeted” website traffic can’t be generated.
Awesome review mate! I am a proud WA member myself and I love it to the MAX! When I first started, I joined as a FREE member. Day 3 into the “free” member, I already love the community and the support provided by the members inside!
To all the people that are on the fence, join us! You’ll love it I promise! 🙂
That’s great! Starting out with WA for free is the best option because it allows you to learn the basics of affiliate marketing and also get your blog/online business up and running before paying a single cent.
As a free member, you certainly get a feel for the community. Once you experience the enormous value offered by WA, you simply can’t wait to upgrade to Premium and build a profitable biz.
Thanks ever so much for encouraging newbies. 😀
Hi Neil, It is very good information about Wealthy Affiliate. I have been the member of WA for a few months and I want to say that WA people are very helpful. Thank you, Nil.
Thanks very muchly! 🙂
That’s fantastic! I’m glad you’re getting the support you need with building your online biz. Whatever question you have, there’s always a community member who has the answer.
Ooh, WA is really cool, I have gone through each and every single word you have written here, it’s so good to see that so many people are making money from the internet, and you have attached screenshots to prove it, and the support is amazing. I haven’t found a place like this before, this is so great, can’t wait to sign up, Hope to see you there.
SWEET! Thanks for dropping by to check out my review, Shareef! 🙂
Indeed, there are a lot of folks using the web to build businesses and change their lives around. Why waste a perfectly good opportunity, huh?
Believe me, members of WA are successfully earning an income online (with me being one of them), and you can too, bud. WA is certainly that one in a million.
Awesome! You won’t be disappointed. I look forward to connecting with you and offering my support inside WA.
I absolutely love Wealthy Affiliate. I had looked for a way to learn this process of affiliate marketing and never really found anything I felt was legit and in a price range I could afford. I didn’t expect to get training for free, but who has hundreds of dollars upfront when you are trying to build a site that will help you pay off debt?
When I found WA, I knew after the course that this was the real thing. I had learned so much in the first 10 free lessons, there was no way I was going to stop at that point. And, I’m glad I joined. I’m learning so much.
I want to encourage anyone who’s still on the fence to give this a shot. It’s totally worth it.
Thanks for sharing your enthusiasm and your review.
I’m happy to hear you’re having a whale of a time at WA! 🙂
Unfortunately, the internet is a place that can’t always be trusted due to scams and also programs selling overpriced memberships. I do agree with you that folks can’t always afford to plough money into expensive online business start-ups and it usually ends up with people getting even deeper into debt to pay for training courses, products, and services for financial freedom.
It’s such a big unnecessary financial risk to take and there are also no guarantees that the platforms are legit either.
It’s awesome that you discovered WA and worked your way through the free lessons because the community provides everything you need for success and at such an affordable membership price that won’t lead people into debt.
Thank You for your encouragement, and you’re welcome!
This looks like a great opportunity to start a business and make money online. I have always wanted to have an online business so I could have the freedom to travel and spend time with family. Thanks for the review of this WA opportunity to make my dream a reality.
Yup, WA is SUPER-AWESOME!
That’s great! When you implement everything that WA gives you as a free and premium member, and work very hard on your business, you absolutely can achieve both financial and time freedom for enabling yourself to focus on what matters the most to you in life. 🙂
You’re very welcome, Lane!
I love how you describe this as a service and a community. I completely agree! It’s not like other programs that promise you you’ll earn tons of money online for doing nothing – it takes work!
I see you’ve been with WA for about 4 years now! Wow! It must be good if you’ve stayed around that long. I would like to know what your biggest struggle was when you first started out? Was there ever a point when you thought it wouldn’t work? And if so, what changed? Was there a specific turning point for your success? (i.e. How long before you KNEW this was for you?)
Thanks for this very in-depth review! I look forward to your response. 🙂
Thanks very much, Kayla! 🙂
If making lots of money on the web really is as simple as “hyped up” programs say it is, then we would all be millionaires/billionaires and nobody would ever work a job lol.
Yep, I’ve been a member of the WA community for some time now. I already had previous internet marketing experience prior to joining WA, so I never had many struggles. But I would say that writing quality blog content was my biggest challenge since I had never written an article/product review before.
Yeah, there were a number of times when it felt like my website(s) weren’t moving anywhere. I even wanted to throw my computer out the window at times HAHA. But I stuck with the training and continued to push forward until my blogs broke through – Traffic, sales, and commissions increased.
I knew that WA was for me right away because I already enjoyed working online with my passion. So it was a no-brainer for me.
As a member of Wealthy Affiliate for about 3 months, I have to say that this is easily the best source for learning how to build an online business.
Before I joined WA, I had no clue what I wanted to go for in life and I did not even know how or think I would be able to build a website. Thanks to WA, I have learned so much when it comes to starting an online business and now I know exactly what I want to do.
The main thing that drew me into becoming part of the WA community was that anyone can join for free which is good to know because there are a lot of scams out there.
The community and support there is also top notch and no other program I have used even comes close to that level. Good review btw.
Very glad to hear it, Arie! 🙂
That’s the beauty of WA – Even if you don’t have a direction in life, the community can help you to find something you’re truly passionate about and build a successful business from it by learning and applying new skills. I’m happy for you!
I sure agree with you that there are tons of fraudulent programs. With WA’s free starter membership, it makes the community so transparent which allows you to see the enormous value you get when you upgrade as a premium member.
Yep, WA is certainly in a league of its own!
Such great information provided here Neil, The description of the program is absolutely amazing. I have been getting tired of looking all over the internet trying to uncover programs that are true, honest, and actually work and have benefits.
Your entire site here has made me feel a comfort level with you and Wealthy Affiliate, I am really looking forward to digging in and trying out such a well-documented program!!
Cheers, Arin! 🙂
Yeah, that’s the thing with the internet – It’s such a huge space, that unfortunately, contains a heck of a lot of scammy programs taking you for a ride. There are many platforms out there that get your hopes up with empty promises, but WA is the total opposite because the community doesn’t just follow through with its promises but also over-delivers at the same time.
AWESOME, glad that my review of WA has put you at ease! I look forward to helping you inside the community.
Thank you, Neil, for this. I am also an affiliate marketer with the wealthy affiliate. One thing that I never did consider is what you were saying about one of the cons of being a member of WA was that sometimes people can go into talking about their personal lives. I am good for doing that because my personal life can be very hectic as far as having a child with leukemia and such.
Sometimes it does filter off into WA which it should not. It’s just that WA encompasses so much of my life until sometimes it can be hard to not cross that thin line. But I will try to be more mindful of what I am doing in the future. Nobody is perfect. But we can always do better. And even though this was not directed at me. I can at least take that away from this article.
No worries, Michelle!
Very cool! The way I see it at WA is that we are all there to build businesses, network, and pay it forward. There’s nothing wrong with going off topic with personal stories and issues “if” they help to inspire the community. Because otherwise, it can be distracting, and that’s time taken away from your online biz.
Sorry to hear about your child. I guess there could be other WA community members in a similar situation who you could connect with for supporting one another. 🙂
I think it’s great that you share your personal story because it’s good to get things off your chest and get some positive feedback from the community. But like I said, make sure that it also inspires other members as well as yourself. That way, we all have something to take away from your experiences.
But with WA being a community of people, I guess it’s only natural for folks to discuss life, in general. I’m sure Kyle and Carson will no doubt create a separate category for life stuff to please everyone.
I just came across your site while surfing the net. This is a great review of Wealthy Affiliate. There are so many fraudulent programs on the internet today and sometimes it can be difficult to determine what is legit and what isn’t.
However, WA seems like the real deal, how long have you been a member?
Aren’t there just! “SCAMS” are exactly what gives the internet marketing world a bad name, and I agree that they make it challenging for newbies to find legitimate programs that won’t suck up their money.
WA is definitely the real deal 100% without question! I’ve been a member since 2013 and have zero regrets. WA has been the best investment I’ve ever made. Period.
Hi Neil, great review. I love your description ‘Head over Heels’ for WA. Live help and guidance 24/7 every day of the year is really appealing. Nice ‘pure, freakin’ awesomeness’ – your attitude is contagious.
Although it sounds almost too good to be true I am hearing your words of caution that you need to put in the work or as you put it ‘donkey-work’.
Thanks, very much appreciated, Fleur! 😀
HAHA… I’m glad that my positive attitude has rubbed off on you!
I think when you’re reviewing a program that you’re passionate about and especially one that’s sent you on the right path to success, it’s kinda difficult to keep the excitement bottled up. So I apologize for making my review seem a little hyped up LOL.
If anybody wants to become financially free, then they must fully commit themselves to their online business. WA is the vehicle, but it’s down to folks to fill it with fuel and drive it for a full-time income.
I can confidently say you have covered every part of WA that indeed makes it such a great and outstanding online community. In fact, WA has no coequal when it comes to online Platforms that provide training for all categories of people who want to achieve some success online.
Even more classic about this community is the fact that you can join for free, absolutely FREE, NO Credit Card required. I’m not sure there is such a community anywhere else apart from WA.
Not to mention is the wonderful training available in this great community. And Neil, I must admit that I just like how the video training provided by WA is conducted. You can easily understand everything, in fact, I like the way Kyle teaches through these step by step videos.
It has really helped. Why am I saying that? Well, I came to WA with NO knowledge at all about building a website and online marketing here I am having my own built website. I can say I really appreciate this community.
In addition to the is the great community members who are ever ready to help in case you’re in need of anything. I just love the live chat here as well, it feels so great chatting with experienced members of the community and I really love that one as well.
As for the site support they are just wonderful, I remember there was a time when one of my websites as not responding and then I was encouraged to send a support ticket. In fact, within some few seconds, I received a reply that the problem has been resolved and was so amazed at how the support here at WA works.
Yes, I will continue to recommend WA to all, from newbies to experienced online marketers, all can benefit from this great community.
I certainly agree with your points. WA is unmatched!
Indeed, having the option to join WA without needing bank details makes the community, even more, appealing for newbies because there are zero risks and no strings attached. Personally, I hate it when a training platform claims it’s free to get started but then requires your credit card details… Err, No Thanks!!
It’s fantastic to hear about your own experiences with WA thus far, and I’m glad that you’re also recommending the platform to noobs too.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us, and I wish you huge success with your website/online biz, Stephen! 😀
Great review of WA! I too have been a member for a few years now and I totally recommend it to anyone who is legitimately serious about starting their own internet business.
The reason I say legitimately serious is that, as you know, many people are looking for a get rich quick opportunity – which does not exist! WA is definitely not a get rich quick program.
So for anyone reading this who has not joined Wealthy Affiliate, WA for short, and you want to really have the best opportunity at building your own business, follow the advice in this review.
If it were not for WA I would not be making a nice income from home every month. This happened not just because of WA but I was also determined to be patient and let success come in time.
Having patience and being determined to learn and apply the training to your new growing business are important aspects to have if you want to succeed.
I tell this to anyone who wants to join WA or those in the early stages of their online development. The information you have provided here in this review Neil, will definitely help people to understand the value of WA.
All the Best,
Thank You, Robert! 😀
WOW, it’s super awesome to know you’ve been a community member for so long!
YEP, there are definitely a lot of folks out there looking to generate fast and easy cash on the internet, but who are disappointed when it doesn’t happen. WA is for the people who are prepared to work hard and go all in for a full-time income. There’s no other way to make real money online. Period.
Glad to hear you’ve become a successful biz owner from implementing the training and using the resources available inside the WA community, man!
It definitely proves that when you have the right guidance + tools and work your socks off, you can be profitable through affiliate marketing.
I couldn’t agree more that “patience” and “determination” are the keys to success!
Your thoughts and personal experiences are very much appreciated here, Robert!
Awesome post, Neil and so right on the mark. As a fellow Wealthy Affiliate member, I can vouch for everything in your post.
What I truly loved from day one at WA was the honesty and that straight up what you see is what you get and none of the ‘fluffy’ stuff so many others have. If you want a place to learn how to do online marketing of any kind, Neil is right. It is here.
Thank you for the clear concise article.
Thanks very much, Merry! 🙂
Awesome! Glad we are both on the same page with WA!
Indeed, WA is an internet marketing platform that’s very transparent when it comes to the features it offers, the pricing, and especially building a successful business.
It’s no problem at all!
Just let me say first of all – WOW!!! This was a very detailed and extremely informative review about Wealthy Affiliate. I’ve never seen a better review on any subject including Wealthy Affiliate quite as good as this one. I joined WA back in 2004 but never really paid it any mind.
I guess I was not ready to get into an online business as yet. Anyway, if I had read a post like this I think I might have joined and understood exactly what was involved and would have committed to really getting my business going.
Needless to say, I’m now a 100% committed WA premium member and I have absolutely no regrets.
I like how you brought in some Cons. Usually, you don’t find any real cons (because WA is really an above board and outstanding platform). I would also add that the amount of information available at WA could be a bit overwhelming, there’s just so much to do.
I don’t think anyone could ever go through every training/lesson or every blog post in a lifetime.
An additional feature I’d recommend is the Site Content feature. I prefer to use this over creating content directly in my admin area of my website.
I can track and measure how I’m performing against myself and against other WA members. Plus the bucket feature is great as it helps me organize posts based on topics or business centers.
HAHA… Thanks very muchly, Kevon!! 😀
WOAH, you are an old school community member, aren’t you? LOL. But being a member of WA for so long really shows how dedicated you are to building a successful web-based business. So KUDOS, my friend!
I’m also glad to hear my review has done its job in giving folks plenty of insight into WA. AND I’ve still got more juicy info to top this review up with lol.
Yeah, I am in agreement with you about there not being any real CONS with WA. But I do like look at things from both sides of the fence, so I can give a balanced and unbiased review, and newbies know exactly what to expect prior to joining the community.
As a member, it’s best to stick with Kyle’s training, watch one of Jay’s webinars on a weekly basis, and then only follow/implement any additional member training when you need to. This way you can keep the info intake under control and not get overwhelmed.
The SiteContent feature is nothing short of AMAZING! Not only does it put the fun into writing blog posts, but certainly keeps you on track with your website and puts you ahead of your competitors. 😉
This is a really good review of Wealthy Affiliate. One of the PROS I would add to your list is the very feature I’m using right now; the comments platform.
I like it for two reasons. First, my blog is in its infancy stage and until I get ranked higher on Google, the comments platform is probably the largest source I have for traffic right now. Obviously, the other reason I like it is that Google likes your site a lot more if it sees user engagement.
It’s kind of a win-win all around. My experience so far with the community has been great. I’d recommend this program to anyone who wants to give blogging a go.
Cheers, Dustin! 🙂
Good point! The SiteComments feature definitely should be added to the PROS. I will be shortly updating this review with the latest cool changes and features added to the WA community.
There are definitely some AWESOME advantages to the using SiteComments – More engagement and higher Google rankings are just 2 of the benefits. There are many others!
Many thanks for giving us your positive experiences with WA.
Your article makes me want to sign up right now! Actually, I am a new member who just upgraded to the Premium membership last week.
Might I put forth the opinion of a guy who is your dad’s age, who did not grow up with computers and finally caved in and started using a cell phone in 2013? The further I progress in setting up my business, the more impressed I become with what I learn from WA. I set up two separate websites for free and realized that the Premium package is far too valuable to disregard.
If I can understand and navigate the training, then anybody can! And just as you said, there are a surprising number of folks reaching out to assist me.
That’s AWESOME! And it’s even more AWESOMETASTIC that you recently joined WA! Welcome to the community, man! 🙂
HAHA… To be honest, although I’m only 36 (at the time of writing this comment), I also didn’t grow up with computers, nor did I get my first mobile phone until 1999/2000. So considering you’re in your late 50s for a guess, we do have something in common LOL.
But it’s great that you’re now learning new skills in the internet marketing field because you still have tons of time left for creating a successful affiliate marketing business. And indeed, WA certainly brings something extraordinary to the table via both free and premium membership options.
WA really is for anyone and everyone, no matter what their age, background, and skills. I think the community is getting close to 1 Million members, so you’re definitely not short of people to get help from and network with.
WA is also my number one choice for affiliate marketing.
In the past three years, they have helped me a lot in building up my own affiliate marketing business. I love their Website Management section as it helps me to manage a number of websites easier.
Thanks for the review.
I’m happy to hear it, Nico! 🙂
Once you become a premium member of WA, it’s very easy to see why it’s the best platform.
WOW, you sure have been a member for a long time! Glad to hear you have an affiliate marketing business in place, and I have to agree with you on the awesome features that come with our SiteRubix blogs.
You are in good hands in terms of the online platform at WA, and as a member myself I can attest to that.
However, the online marketing space is oversaturated, so is there still hope for new people interested in making money online?
You most definitely are, Aaron! Kyle and Carson take care of all your online business building needs for success. 🙂
The internet marketing world may appear saturated to a lot of folks, but it really isn’t. ANYONE who joins WA has the opportunity to create a full-time income in any niche of their choice. If they follow Kyle’s training to the letter, use the resources available, and work hard, they will make money.
Neil, EXCELLENT job. This is what commitment looks like. I see so many people who are interested, but not committed. You’re committed, clearly.
The first thing I’ll say is that I’ve been a Premium Member of Wealthy Affiliate for over a year and even I learned several things in your review. It’s easily the most comprehensive review I’ve seen, and I’ve seen a number of them.
The community, guidance, training and support aspects of WA are all extremely valuable. It is not a course that you do once and apply. It is a living, breathing, changing and adapting organism and community. Once you get a bit of a look at how it operates and the very human nature of it, the place pretty much sells itself, as you know better than I do.
Like anything else, it’s for the user to do the work. Even in only a year, it’s easy to see those who have blown through WA expecting it’s going to be a click-click-cash kind of thing. It’s also easy to see who are the people who have dug in for the long haul, done the work, are continuing to do the work and having success as a result.
Good for you. Thank you for this reason. I can only add to your recommendation of WA and encourage anyone looking at this comment (as I did when I was doing my research in 2016) to look me up once you’re into the community. You will find me there, not with some code name, but with my actual name, same as it is here. It’s no scam. It’s a community where creators get to work and support each other along the way.
Thanks very much, Kevin!
If you really want success and financial freedom, then you must be fully committed to your online business, whatever the niche.
Happy to hear you’ve been a part of the WA family for so long, and thanks for the review compliment too. 🙂
WA certainly provides us with the essential resources we need for creating a full-time income. And I agree with you on WA not being a “one-time” thing because building any business is always an ongoing process, especially if you want to maintain high rankings in Google.
Indeed, when most folks walk through WA’s door, they are immediately sold on the community and the value it offers.
WA gives folks what they need, but as you say, it’s really down to them to put the work in and create their own success stories. If people want the income bad enough, they will do what’s required of them at the end of the day. WA is for anyone who is serious, not for people wanting quick and easy money.
I really appreciate you adding to my recommendation of the community, and I’m glad you’re having a blast like the rest of us. Thanks also for reaching out to my readers, some of whom will no doubt connect with you inside the community.
What a fantastic review!
I am really enjoying my journey with WA and have no regrets signing up. There is lots of competition out there on the market like WA, but the reason I choose WA though is for the online community support and help.
No matter what time of day it is, there is always someone to help me with my work who has been at the same stage as me on their WA journey.
Cheers, much appreciated, James!
Good for you, dude! Many folks who do join WA end up sticking around for years because they feel the same way you do (including myself).
WA has absolutely nothing to worry about when it comes to its competitors because both Kyle and Carson are continually taking the community from strength-to-strength, putting the platform way ahead of the competition.
I do agree with you on the support aspect because it’s top notch. Since there are nearly 1 million WA members from around the world, help is available 24/7/365.
Probably the best review I have seen on Wealthy Affiliate. Excellent work mate! I joined WA in November 2016 and have had my website up for around 8 months. I love the community and the support of some 800,000 members, the live training, the friends you make, the amazing people from all over the world and the support from the founders Kyle and Carson.
I don’t know of any better community than WA. I had a few issues with my website early doors but the support made it a breeze to get through. Quick and friendly.
Probably my favorite part of WA is the Keyword Tool. SEO is so important for any online business and the keyword tool has been a Godsend to me. Easy to use and it works. My website is slowly getting articles on page one of Google, so yes you need to put in the donkey work but so so worth it. Thanks for a brilliant post,
Cheers, Kevin! You made my day! 🙂
I’m happy to hear you’ve been a WA member and also plugging away at your online business for a good number of months. Good on Ya!
I agree, every aspect of WA is astounding, and it will prove difficult to find a better internet marketing community elsewhere on the web. I think we all have website issues at some point because the internet is no way perfect.
But the technical support guys at WA are always friendly as you say, and they are very fast at fixing problems. If ever I have an issue, I shoot support a message, and the website problem is fixed within minutes. WA is lightning fast!
Support from other programs can usually take 24 hours or more which is frustrating and also delays your success.
The community keyword tool is truly AWESOME and puts other keyword research platforms to shame (apart from Jaaxy 3.0) lol. Indeed, SEO is crucial to the success of blogs these days because, without the right tools, and training, no free organic targeted traffic/sales/affiliate commissions can be generated.
Good stuff! It’s super cool that your website is taking off, man!
Stick with it and take your online business all the way to the top!
Hey there! I just finished reading your article on WA and thought I would just drop you a quick comment to share my thoughts.
I’ve been a member of the WA community for quite a while now and I totally agree with you that the membership isn’t perfect, but it’s certainly very good.
I aimed to make just enough money with WA to cover my second year’s fees within the first 12 months. With the help and support of the community, I made more than enough money to continue my journey with Wealthy Affiliate.
This is a great review and a fantastic insight into the hard work that you put in.
All the best,
Thanks, I appreciate your feedback on WA! 😀
Glad to hear you’re another satisfied member of WA. It’s not a perfect community, but it’s sure the closest to being the perfect internet marketing community.
That’s totally AWESOME, man! It just shows that when you leverage everything that WA offers and work hard enough, you will not only cover your membership fees but make some profit, and profit that will eventually turn into a full-time income.
Thanks for the compliments, Andrew!
With so many scams online these days, it’s kind of hard to believe anything. I have come across so many of them. If they say get rich quick with no hard work at all…. you know its a scam.
With WA, they don’t claim to be a “get rich quick” site. They tell you upfront that it takes dedication to build your site. There’s no bells and whistles. When I looked into WA, I felt like they were on the up and up.
I have been with WA for almost a year now. I love it. The community is so wonderful. People are so willing to help others that may have a problem. The lessons are plain and simple and to the point. When I first started, I didn’t even know the difference between upload and download. If I can do this, anybody can.
I totally agree with you on scams, Brenda!
There was a time when I went through scam-after-scam and lost money. I didn’t think I would ever find a “legit” platform, but then WA came along and things totally changed for me. I’ve had an AMAZING relationship with WA over the last few years!
YUP, Kyle and Carson are both 100% honest with everyone. WA is a straight-talking community. Period. WA is definitely the leading internet marketing community without a single doubt. The platform constantly evolves which gives it the edge.
SUPER FANTASTIC, Brenda! I’m happy you’re having such an amazing experience with WA, and I agree with everything you’re saying. Indeed, WA is suitable for any newbie with zero business building skills. 🙂
Hey Neil, here from WA! GREAT review and awesome job giving readers an inside look of what we exactly do over at WA. Many reviews just speak about how great or poor a product is but something about your review made me feel like I was being reintroduced to something amazing!
Well, I actually just was again lol. As I’m reading I’m thinking, “wow this is something fantastic…” I almost signed up again by accident 😀
Nice to meet you, Jaron! It’s always great to meet other WAers here on my blog. 🙂
Cheers, I appreciate the compliments! It’s AWESOME to know my review has done its job! If I’m reviewing programs like WA, I like to give folks a real walk-through so they know exactly what kinda value to expect as WA community members.
SWEET, just don’t go opening a 2nd WA account! LOL.
Hi there, you mentioned that the community is really active. Is the community actually helpful/knowledgeable though?
I’ve gone into the reddit support communities for affiliate marketing and while they are active they aren’t very helpful for a lot of questions. It seems like mostly people with zero knowledge answering other people with zero knowledge… Is this the case at WA too?
YEP, the community inside WA is EXTREMELY helpful and knowledgeable! This is because there are nearly 1,000,000 members and the majority of folks who join do take action on Kyle’s lessons which makes them experienced online business owners.
I can’t really comment on Reddit since I’m not a member. But with most internet marketing communities, you will always come across a lot of “newbies” who try to be helpful. But when they have no knowledge, they usually end up giving out the wrong information that can be harmful to people’s online businesses. in my opinion, if they don’t know the answers, they shouldn’t be contributing.
With WA, this isn’t the case at all. Yeah, you’ll get the odd newbie here n’ there trying to answer questions with little to no knowledge. But most of the help you receive is from marketers who are taking action and know the answers. 😀
Now, this is how a review should be done! Hats off Neil!
To be honest, I’ve read a few more reviews on WA after reading yours in order to get more points of view, but I have to tell you that you are writing and explaining very well those features of WA, even for a newbie like me.
Your review makes more sense than the review of others and it is explained so well that I have only one question left after reading it. You said that this platform gives you access to millionaires. I was wondering if in nowadays it is still possible for someone to become one and how much time would he/she need to spend in order to achieve this level of success?
By your knowledge, is there someone in this community that started from scratch with no prior knowledge and money to invest in ads and achieved in becoming a millionaire? Thank you for your review and I am looking forward to your answers!
Cheers, Andrei! Your compliments are very much appreciated!
Glad to hear my review of WA comes across really clear to noobs. 😀
I’m sure there are many great reviews like this one, but I’m flattered. With the phenomenal power of the internet, we all have the same opportunity to become millionaire affiliates and bloggers.
To be honest, to reach your first $1,000,000, I really cannot give you an exact time frame because there are variables to consider. But if you plug away at your online business (daily), I reckon within 5 years, you could become a millionaire. I guess even sooner if you really went above and beyond!
With so many successful members inside the community, there are certainly bound to be some folks who have become wealthy without the knowledge and ad budgets prior to joining WA. However, to know the exact names, I would have to personally contact these folks and conduct my research into their backgrounds. With over 800,000 members, this could take me a while to gather member testimonials lol.
The best advice I can give is to get your free WA starter account and also network with the most successful affiliates and bloggers to get the answers and inspiration you need.
A completely terrific review on WA, you mentioned just about EVERYTHING (stuff that I didn’t even know).
I joined WA a couple of months ago and glad I did. The community is super friendly and people are always trying to help each other and see each other succeed. Wish I had found the community earlier, but still glad I did.
So for any of those still on the edge of joining or not, you should join, (but that is up to you).
Thanks! You’re too kind, Deep!
Fantastic! WA is constantly evolving, so there’s always gonna be new things to discover when it comes to tools, training, and support. Unlike most platform owners, Kyle and Carson put YOU first. So as a newbie, be prepared for more AWESOMENESS to come from WA!
Many folks who join WA, all wish they had found the community much sooner. Even I wished the same thing after being burned by numerous scams. But as you say, at least we found the community. What happens from here on out is the most important thing for all of us WAers. 😀
As the quote goes – “Look at Life Through The Windshield, Not The Rear View Mirror”. And when you become that successful online Entrepreneur, you can then look back and smile to yourself because of how far you’ve traveled.
Thanks for the encouragement. Folks should definitely become a part of the community if they want to choose a new path in life and achieve financial independence.
I do think the WA is a good place to start blogging especially for beginners. When I started I had a blog and thought I knew what I was doing but I was way off base. I joined for free to get the free websites and start, and I have been with WA for over a year and a half.
I would say those who are on the fence should sign up for free just to get an idea of how it works. You can’t lose. I know people go to college for years only to find they cant get a job. It really doesn’t matter what age you are either, I am in my 50s but have learned a ton on the platform, more than I would through college I think.
It’s about consistency and believing in what you are doing. I think you laid it out for people very well. I have a website devoted to helping bloggers find their true potential so I know it’s a give and take reward system. You have to be dedicated and look at your business as a business and that can be hard to do until you start making money on it. But, it’s important to enjoy the journey as well. Great review!
With all the training and resources you need in ONE place together with the cost-effectiveness, makes WA the #1 platform for internet marketers of all experience levels, and especially newbies as you say.
The thing with blogging, it’s not as simple as setting one up and jumping straight into publishing articles because there are many important aspects that newbie bloggers need to learn so they can create successful businesses. When you plug into WA, you’re given exactly what you need (tools, training, and assistance) for driving traffic to your website from the search engines.
Glad to hear you’ve been a member for so long, James! 1.5 years sure tells us that you’re a successful affiliate/blogger. 😀
Since WA offers folks a free starter account (with no credit card necessary or other strings attached), there’s absolutely no reason for people to be sitting on the fence. They should be grabbing this opportunity with both hands! I agree with you… not only can college/university graduates struggle to find good jobs but they also rack up debt which becomes difficult to pay off. Fortunately, WA offers folks a way out of this debt and also the opportunity to become wealthy individuals.
Indeed, WA is for all age groups. Anyone can learn new internet marketing skills and become a success. Good for you, James! Although, you’re still a spring chicken. 😉 The stuff you’re learning inside WA, you would no doubt have to pay a fortune for at college/university too. Actually, my Mom in her 50s is also a part of WA and she’s currently building out a beauty and makeup blog. And just two weeks ago, my youngest Brother (only 16 years old) joined WA and is the proud owner of a new PS4 gaming blog.
Both my Mom and Brother also had ZERO marketing skills prior to becoming a part of the amazing WA community. So I hope this inspires newbies reading this comment right now.
Yeah, you’re right! If you have that self-belief and do something to drive your online business forward each day, you can accomplish success and earn a sizeable monthly income. You have a great niche, and there are always bloggers needing help with their online businesses. When you put yourself out there and give as much value away as you possibly can for free, you’ll be highly rewarded by the web. I would say by the universe, but that sounds a little cheesy LOL.
I think the problem with some bloggers is the fact that they look at their businesses as some “part-time” and don’t consider blogging as their #1 priority. From experience, when you invest a lot of time into blogging, your online business will roll and you’ll see BIG rewards sooner. I think when you do make your first $1 online, it can propel you into action.
YES, enjoyment definitely plays a big part in the journey! Folks should work hard and love what they’re doing. “Passion” will always lead to much bigger success.
This is the most thorough review of Wealthy Affiliate I have seen yet! I am a member and I must say that I agree with you. WA really is a “breath of fresh air” compared to all the other money making opportunities online.
What’s your favorite part about WA?
Thanks for sharing this review.
That’s what I like to hear, Darcy! 😉 lol.
It’s awesome to meet another smart member of the WA community! Glad to meet you! Exactly! Once you compare WA to every other platform out there, it certainly shines like a Diamond.
GOSH, I LOVE everything about WA! The longer I’m a member, the more the entire community grows on me.
It’s a really tough question to answer, but I do really like the ‘SiteComments” feature because it helps to generate engagement on your blog posts which also contributes to TOP rankings in the search engines, bringing in more traffic and generating sales.
I absolutely love everything that WA provides! I had a blog on another platform for almost a decade and didn’t make the progress towards my goals that I’ve made in the last month with WA.
The education and support from the WA community have been so helpful. They have offered honest constructive feedback and it has helped me get better at connecting with my audience. I’m so glad I found it!
That makes two of us, Kelly!
That’s crazy! 10 years is a very long time to struggle with blogging. And it just goes to show that when you do get access to the right tools, “up-to-date” step-by-step training as well as the support you need, it will put you on the right path for online success.
FANTASTIC! Glad to hear you’re finally getting the right support for your business. This is why it’s so important to join a platform that has a solid, active, and extremely supportive “community” in place. Whatever questions you have about internet marketing, folks at WA always have the answers for you.
If you’ve already gained so much value from WA within just a month, imagine what the months ahead are gonna bring you with your online biz. 😉
WA is one of the best if not the best program. There are a wide variety of benefits if you sign up for this program. You will learn a lot about internet marketing.
If you don’t know where to start, taking the courses will aid you in coming up with your niche. You can build your site with their invaluable tools. To sum things up, if you are looking for extra income, this is the place for you.
I couldn’t have said it better myself, Emeolu! WA ROCKS!
Indeed, there are absolutely TONS of benefits you get as a free and especially a Premium member of WA. I’m not gonna outline advantages, since you’ll see them in my review when you scroll up. You not only learn a whole lot of awesome stuff on digital marketing and building a business, but WA shows you how to get ahead of your competition (non-WA members).
I agree with you, WA gives folks a real direction and all the resources they need for success.
Thanks for your encouraging words for the newbies. 😀
How long is the WA course? Is there any end to paying the membership? If you stay for three years that’s well over $1,000.
Is there any proof that this works and are you making money. If you are how do you make money, from products or promoting WA?
What’s the retention rate for new members and do most quit after a few months? Is this really legitimate or are you just promoting the same platform over and over again?
Is the real money in commissions earned from WA or by selling products through affiliate links? Sorry, lots of questions but great review of WA.
WOAH, so many questions!! 😛 But thanks for asking them, David! LOL.
I think the easiest way to answer your questions is to number my answers.
1: The “Online Entrepreneur Certification” course consists of 5 levels: 1 – Getting Started. 2 – Building Your Own Traffic Producing Website. 3 – Making Money! 4 – Entering Social Engagement. 5 – Achieving Maximum Success Through Content Creation. And each level consists of 10 walk-through video + written training lessons. And as for the “WA Affiliate Bootcamp”, there are 7 levels also consisting of 10 step-by-step lessons each.
How long it takes you to work through the modules, depends on how quickly you work.
2: The WA membership fee is either a monthly or yearly ongoing process. However, if you choose the annual option, you save money. 🙂
3: Yeah, it is true that you’ll be paying over $1K for 3 years lol. But it’s more about seeing the bigger picture because you can build a successful business and generate a full-time income within 12 months. Your WA membership fees will be paid for and you’ll be in profit. By the time you reach that 3-year mark as a member of WA, you’ll be financially free.
So I now have a question for you. Do you see that the WA membership fees are such a small price to pay for the potential income you can gain in return from your business? Once you have success, your membership costs become irrelevant.
4: YEP, there is definitely proof that WA works! When you get your free WA starter account, you’ll see a number of community discussion posts of successful members along with their income proof screenshots. In addition, in Google, you’ll also come across a number of WA reviews from successful bloggers showing their income results.
And YEP, I’m certainly making money myself. I’ve created several posts in WA on my successes, and I’ll soon be updating this WA review with a number of screenshots.
5: I’m making money through this very blog you’re looking at. I plug into Kyle’s training, implement it into my website, and also make good use of the tools and community support provided.
6: The recommendation of WA is one of my main income sources. I’m also earning from recommending the Jaaxy keyword tool and ClickFunnels products. Amazon is another revenue stream via my fancy dress costume blog. Taking advantage of multiple channels is the best way to make money as an affiliate, in my personal experience.
7: 1 in 8 members go Premium at WA. And as WA evolves, more folks are staying on as members and the Premium conversion rate is improving. The quitting rate is extremely low because WA gives members so much value that they can’t find anywhere else online.
8: Hand on heart, WA is 100% legit. The reason why I’m recommending it is that I’ve been a member myself since 2013 and I know it’s the best platform that works for success. Nah, I’m not promoting the same program repeatedly lol. I also promote other affiliate products and services to help people (as mentioned above ^^).
9: When you join WA, you’re shown how to promote affiliate products for commissions. This is how I and other members of WA are earning online in various niches. The WA affiliate program itself is one way to earn commissions, but there are thousands of other programs/products/services out there to make money from for anyone.
I hope my answers have been helpful?
This is a really awesome and in-depth review of WA. There isn’t a need for me to further emphasize how great this WA community & platform is. Without a doubt, it’s one of the best online marketing platforms in the industry which I believe charges the most reasonable and affordable price!
What intrigues me is your cons on WA. I can really resonate with your second point there that there are a lot of personal type of things being posted in the community and it’s easy to get distracted.
That’s just a little side-effect of the community being too friendly, engaging and social. Despite that, there are a lot more people sharing valuable information there all the time and I’m learning from the community every single day! Really grateful I found WA at such a young age 🙂
Once again, thank you so much for this review. I enjoyed it a lot!
Much appreciated, man! HAHA… Yeah, I think I’ve just about covered every angle of WA. I just need to add a few success stories and some of my own successes to the review. 😉 Indeed, WA offers a totally different and awesome experience compared to most affiliate training communities. And the cheap cost certainly sets WA apart.
I’m actually glad that there’s nothing else like WA because it’s what makes the community VERY unique.
I can see your point on WA members being friendly and engaging. This is a good thing! However, I still think some folks need to cut down on the personal and non-topical stuff. Maybe some members could save it for Private Messaging or Kyle and Carson could create a separate discussion thread for it that doesn’t get mixed in with the “important” discussions for success. It’s just an idea.
It’s fantastic to hear that you came across WA as a teenager for a guess? That means you have a whole life ahead of you as an online Entrepreneur instead of living as an employee earning a “limited” income and having your freedom snatched away from you (like the majority of society). There are MANY life-changing benefits as a member of WA!
Thank you for this in-depth and helpful review. There are so many people promoting affiliate training programs, but they never really tell you what they have to offer in the way of classrooms or what the intended outcome of your education is.
I have reviewed several of these programs while searching for a way to make money online, doing blogging with affiliate advertising. It is shameful that they expect you to put out $100, $200, $1000 or even $10,000 just for the privilege of selling their product for them!
You did not say if you are making money with this WA program. Can you elaborate on that?
It’s a pleasure, Irma! 🙂
Yeah, I do agree with you that there are a number of training platforms out there not giving you the full details. This can sometimes be a marketing tactic where they feed you just enough information to generate interest, so you whack out your credit card to find out more.
Indeed, it is a disgrace that some platforms charge you membership fees just to promote the products. What you’re actually referring to is the “MLM” industry, unfortunately. The reason for the expensive fees is so that these “Multi-Level-Marketing” opportunities can stay afloat and afford to pay their affiliates (aka hustlers).
MLM has a bad reputation and I consider it as an unethical business practice. Network Marketing (online and offline) has certainly left a bad taste in my mouth as well as out of pocket too.
But I’m glad we’re on the same page, Irma!
I am certainly making money from various affiliate programs, with thanks to the websites, tools, training, and support provided inside the WA community.
Rather than elaborating on this, I am shortly updating this review with WA member success stories as well as some of my income proof screenshots from various programs. However, if you look me up inside WA (username: neilc), you will see some of my successes I’ve already documented.
I love your review! In fact, I like it enough to want to sign up all over again! I have been a part of WA for a few months now and as someone who has seen the inside, I agree with you the support at WA truly is Pure Freakin’ AWESOMENESS and AMAZEBALLS! You really can’t find anything like it anywhere else.
I actually love the fact that the community itself is so well built. Everyone seems to care that you succeed. You can build a rapport with others and grow in the community. However what I like most about WA is that they don’t inflate your head with false hopes and broken dreams. It doesn’t give you fluff about ‘Getting Rich Fast’ It allows you to pursue the dream in your own time and allows you to create a career online, not lead people to a system that only works for the top people in the community.
I can see myself hanging around the community for the next three to five years. Why? To be honest, I love the community. It has done, and continues to do, a lot for me and the least I can do is return the favor for those that need it. Now I’m not saying I won’t be managing 3-5 websites at a time at the same time, however, I feel that contributing to such an amazing community will help anyone looking for proper guidance in their online endeavor.
I have started in the ‘Make money online’ niche, and I absolutely love it! I work toward helping entrepreneurs become successful online. I aim to provide the guidance, and motivation that every entrepreneur might be looking for on a daily basis. Knowledge is everything in any business, and while I may not know as much as someone who has been doing this for 30+ years, I still aim to help those people that may need it starting out.
I love to provide resources for knowledge as necessary, including but not limited to books, YouTube videos, and perhaps quotes from inspirational people. There are many quotes that I absolutely love, and are completely motivational. There is one that sticks out above the rest for me, and I use it every day to push as hard as I can to make my endeavors, and potentially everyone else’s, a success. It’s an inspirational quote that I love to live by in order to get through the toughest days.
“Today I will do what others won’t, so tomorrow I can accomplish what others can’t” – Jerry Rice
It’s obviously one that gets used and changed regularly by many to fit their needs, and it is the one that I like to use myself. It allows me to see that the struggle that you face every single day allows you build a better tomorrow.
Anyway, I’ll stop rambling in your comments. Thank you for the great review, and the great read!
Thank You very much, bud! Do it… sign up to WA AGAIN! LOL. Although, WA disallows 2 accounts. 😛 That’s fantastic! I’m glad that your experiences with WA have been nothing short of amazing so far. Expect this AWESOMENESS to continue over the coming months and years as a member.
I totally hear ya on the “community” aspect because we are all here to ‘Pay it Forward’. We are a bunch of genuine individuals helping one another up that ladder for a phenomenal life. And I also agree with you on all that “hype” stuff because Kyle and Carson are straight up front with you from the very start of your journey. WA is a total B.S-free community.
I’m happy to hear you’ll be hanging around the community for a few more years, and in fact, a VERY long time to come, huh? 😉 I think when you’re happy and successful in your online business, it’s infectious because many folks will be inspired by you and your accomplishments. There really is nothing more satisfying in life than becoming successful and passing your knowledge/experiences on to others.
It’s awesome you’ve chosen a niche that you love because when you’re truly passionate about helping others, they can see the value you provide, and your digital business will roll. Yeah, you may not have the experience as some digital marketers, but who cares, right? The main thing is that you’ve made the right decision to want to “help” people to better their lives. That’s what really counts here.
YouTube videos, books, and motivation/inspiration will certainly benefit your audience and followers because you’re still putting in the work to find the best resources on the web to share with people. And they may well be resources that some of your audience know nothing about until they come across you and your website. “VALUE” is all around us in many forms.
The quote you’ve shared is a very inspirational one because it is true and serves as an important reminder for yourself and others. Read that quote out loud to yourself every day, and the message really will sink into your subconscious mind, propelling you into action. I think it really is vital that we must all practice personal development on a daily basis because quotes and also motivational videos, etc, really do help us to push through the struggles of building an online business and in life, in general.
There’s actually a framed quote in my bedroom that I read out loud to myself on a daily basis – “Some People Want it to Happen, Some Wish it Would Happen, Others MAKE it HAPPEN”. I’m not sure who it’s by, but this quote sticks out in my mind and really helps when I’m stuck.
Keep up with helping folks and the motivation, and your business will flourish, my friend!
I really don’t mind the rambling lol.
The AWESOMENESS you speak of will never get old! What I have experienced up to this point in my online career can, and will be much different than what you have experienced. This applies to everyone at WA, and regardless of how many people I talk to, I have NEVER heard ‘I have had a bad experience at WA’.
With this in mind, if you ever have a problem with ANYTHING regarding your site, or WA itself, the community is there to help. If you ask a question in the live chat, they can have an answer almost immediately. In the off chance that they don’t the exact answer you are looking for, you can always go to the lessons, classrooms, etc., and get assistance there. The best part about this however is, IF that somehow fails, you have the person that you signed up under, and finally, you have Kyle!!
The person that created most, if not all, of the lessons in the BootCamp, and the certification course will respond to any messages you send him. Kyle can be reached real easy, and will respond. How many websites will have their creators actually care about your success and mean it? Kyle does!
As for myself, I am still going through some of the lessons and I can say that they are quite amazing. They have a plan that helps you to develop everything that you need to become successful.
I like that Kyle and Carson are both completely honest with you from the beginning, as you had stated previously. They don’t try and ruffle your feathers making you think that you are going to become an overnight success. They don’t try and inflate your ego and make you think that you have to purchase anything other than the optional premium membership.
As for paying it forward, I feel grateful for everything that WA provides, and I think that everyone that has been brought into it whether they have just started or they have been there for a while will be extremely grateful for the success that Kyle and Carson both help you build. Paying it forward is the best thing that you can do to help anyone else become a success and I plan to be paying a lot in return for those that absolutely need the assistance.
Motivational avenues and other forms of knowledge are even great when it comes to this. Just like anything you make a commitment to, you go through a period where you are so motivated and you think that you can accomplish the world! However, as you start to get into it and start to put all the work into it and realize just how much work you have to put into it, it can be a bit of a hindrance.
This alone is why I like to provide the motivation that I do on my website. Anyone can come in and get the little push that they need. They do not need to be in the ‘make money online’ niche as I am either. They can simply come and get motivated to go out and get some errands run, or even their job in their normal day-to-day activities.
You’re right when it comes to being able to provide additional avenues of motivation that people require. Many people think of classrooms and sites to be a great source online, however often overlook all the other options that they use on a regular basis. YouTube, Google, Blogs, etc. all provide a nice little blanketing of the motivation that will get them through the day.
While they will be able to learn everything in relation to the business itself through WA, as it’s a complete tool, they can use sites like yours or even my own to be able to make the changes that they need to internally. It’s personal development my friend and it works wonders!
Another avenue that anyone that has access to the WA can access is the success stories. If you want to provide a link to any of the success stories, I will leave it to you. However, once you are inside all you have to do is type in ‘success stories’ into the search bar and they all come up! you just have to pick a new one and trust me, they are completely motivational.
These remind me of the time I was going through my free trial and actually searching for them, and I couldn’t help but about something interesting to me. Without even starting the training in WA, I think, ‘hey, these people that are THIS successful, have been in my shoes at the beginning.’ It was a big wake-up call and a huge boost to get started and PUSH HARD. I still do to this day.
That quote I stated in my previous comment, I actually have hung in my room as well. I think that every person has a different thing that drives them. You just have to know what drives you as a person. Each of us has to decide our drive on our own. I have always had a dream to go out there and live without a traditional 9-5 and being able to pursue an adventure in an online business is going to allow me to do that.
I don’t know everything in relation to online business, however, I greatly appreciate the opportunity that has been laid out for me. The opportunity is also amazing for those that are willing to give it a go!
Here we go… I’m beyond rambling again, and I wanted to prevent that this time! I must go on… HAHA!
However, I wanted to state that if you have a dream that you want to accomplish online, or if you have a passion that you want to pursue, I think that you should take the opportunity to do what you want to do. If you have a passion for cars or even art of any kind, don’t hesitate to make it happen, and WA is a great resource to get the job done, hands down.
With a great resource just seconds away, you don’t even have to put a lot of effort into the first few steps of setting up your website. Who knows, maybe you’ll like it enough to create another few websites. Just get out there and try it! This review of WA has everything that you are going to need in order to make a well-educated decision. Pursue the dream, get in there and make your online career a reality!
So with that said, if you don’t mind me asking… What brought you to WA? What made you think that you had to do what you had to do to push yourself as hard as you can? Where will you go from here?
GOSH, what a reply, Will!!
Where do I start!? LOL.
You’ve got that right as far as the AWESOMENESS is concerned because as the internet marketing world evolves, so does everything inside WA. How many other platform owners continually update their training and tools to reflect new internet trends? My guess is, not many. WA provides so much amazing value, that there’s no reason for anyone to have negative experiences and leave.
I couldn’t agree with you more on support. If ever I have a website problem, the support team always responds within minutes. With the majority of platforms, support can take anything up to and over 24 hours to respond to you. We simply can’t afford to wait around for long periods of time waiting for blog fixes. And of course, the WA community also provides a fast response time too. One of the best parts of WA is that there are “multiple” channels for support. Nobody is ever left alone in the dark with their business.
Kyle certainly leads by example by taking the time out of his busy schedule to reply. Whenever I have a question on any part of the WA ‘Affiliate Bootcamp’, Kyle always shoots back an answer and offers his support. He’s a guy who goes above and beyond to help anyone he can. Kyle is certainly admired and respected by the community, and with close to 1 million community members, it can’t be an easy task for him to keep up with questions.
I definitely hear ya, man! I bet there are very few Gurus and expert internet marketers who offer their personal support within their platforms. And even if they do, they always charge expensive upsell fees to join their “Inner Circles” LOL. Kyle and Carson are always available to chat and answer your questions without slapping additional expenses on top of your membership. This is what separates them apart from the rip-off merchants.
I’m glad you’re loving the lessons so far! Indeed, the training is broken down into sections and you’re provided with a checklist to tick off at the end of each training lesson. It certainly helps us to stay on the right track to success.
When Kyle and Carson are upfront with you on earning an online income and also give you what you need for a small monthly or yearly cost (without upsells), you know you’ve definitely found the right affiliate training community. 😀
I’m totally in agreement with you on ‘Paying it Forward’ because this is a vital aspect of success. I hate it when platforms don’t provide you with community support, because then it means if you get stuck with anything, you’ve only got the support team to rely on. And as I mentioned, support can be slow with many programs out there. WA truly offers something unique. Kyle and Carson are always on the ball!
Good for you, Will! The more you give to the community and in fact, to the world through your blog, you will a very successful.
Nobody ever said building an online business is easy because it does take perseverance and discipline (combined with self-motivation) to create a skyscraper. But once you’ve pushed through the hard work, you will earn your desired income and your goals come to fruition. It’s difficult, but it’s so worth it!
I think it’s awesome that you’re giving your readers that extra motivation/inspiration because we all need that push in life to accomplish wonderful things, whether online or offline. Motivation really does help, and more folks must focus on it every day. It doesn’t matter whether it’s watching a video or even reading a book chapter or two. Anything that positively conditions the brain can act as a driving force for achieving success.
Personal Development is definitely one of the keys to creating a full-time income on the web and living our dreams.
YES, “SUCCESS STORIES”… How could I forget!? There are many success stories from WA members who are building online businesses in various niches, and they certainly do help to motivate and inspire the rest of us, without question. When you read the multiple success stories, then you know it’s absolutely 100% possible that you too, can be just as successful, if not more.
I’m still in the process of editing this review on WA. But mark my words, I am gonna be showcasing a number of inspiring WA member success testimonials along with proof of their accomplishments.
They really are motivational, and there are heaps of these stories to find inside WA. 🙂
You’re so right on these successful people too! Because they started out as free WA members, worked their way through Kyle’s training and fully applied themselves to get to where they are now. If anybody ever achieved success on the internet, you can also do it, my friend! We can ALL do it! Work hard and have faith in your abilities.
Happy to know you’re quote is also hanging on your wall because you need to see it every day without fail. Yeah, we all have different goals and dreams in life. But the majority of us really want to quit our jobs so badly and live the life we have always dreamed of. With WA, those dreams are possible!
Plug away at your online business, and you’ll learn more as each day passes. You’ll be an expert online Entrepreneur in no time. 😉 But just ensure you never let this amazing opportunity go. That’s the beauty of WA because the guys provide anyone and everyone (at any experience level) with the same opportunity to become successful biz owners.
I enjoy your ramblings, and I’m sure my readers will too! LOL.
I agree. If there’s something we want in life, we should just go for it. What have we actually got to lose? WA is definitely the platform for helping our dreams to materialize. The “implementation” part is down to us.
The free 10-lesson starter course from WA really is so simple to follow, and it’s incredibly easy to get an online business started. The hard work is in the content creation. But when you’re working on your passion and helping others, it becomes a thoroughly enjoyable experience that leads to a big income in the long term. When your business is profitable, you’ll be very glad that you joined WA and got started.
Thanks for your inspiring words here, Will! You should also become a motivational speaker. 🙂
I also appreciate the questions.
I started making some money online as an affiliate in the late 90s from promoting Amazon products throughout the seasonal times such as Halloween and Christmas. So I knew it was possible to earn from promoting products on the web.
However, there came a point where I wanted to earn money all year round and become financially free from creating a full-time business, and I desperately needed to learn more about internet marketing to make it happen. So after I fell for numerous duds and lost money (the typical story these days), I eventually came across WA through Tissa Godavitarne’s ‘Acme People Search’ MLM program which I think is now obsolete.
But at least it introduced me to WA. So for that, I have Tissa to thank.
From here on out, I see myself as an online Entrepreneur and leaving my old life of employment and financial struggles behind. Now, it’s all about living life exactly how I want on my terms without being dictated to by society and forced to live a life of “limitations”.
I must tell you, you have really had outdone yourself if I can use that word. Your review of Wealthy Affiliate is so full of so much information. You have really provided you readers with more than enough information to become a part of this community.
WA is a wonderful community that has a proven system to help people to have online success. Your review is truly amazing and gives much food for thought, I believe that those who read this will want to join the WA community.
Thanks, Norman! Yeah, I’ll let you off with using that word LOL.
Well, Kyle and Carson have packed so much value into the WA community, that they’ve forced me to write such a wordy and insightful review. More info is still yet to come (including success stories). 😉
Indeed, WA is a totally proven platform that’s helped and is currently helping members to create thriving businesses from their passions. Cheers for the compliments! And those who do land on this review should definitely get their free WA starter accounts without hesitation because WA can be a life-changer for those willing to use the resources provided and work hard.
A few months ago, I joined Wealthy Affiliate as a free member. Eventually, when they offered a discounted first month for the Premium membership, I figured I’d give it a shot. After all, it was less than twenty bucks. Now, I am really enjoying learning the more in-depth information that I wasn’t getting the free membership.
The community of WA is awesome! If you ever have a question or need someone to help clarify something within the certification/learning center, there is always someone online willing to help out. I can honestly say in the time I’ve been part of the WA community, I’ve only had one person answer a question rudely, and I would hazard a guess they might’ve been having a bad day! Everyone is helpful and friendly, but yes, it was a bit overwhelming at first. Sometimes it still is!
I think I have a fairly unusual niche I’m working within, but with WA I’m learning how to develop a strategy for monetizing my site within my niche. I can honestly say this is the only program where I feel good about my monthly fee! So many others just want my money, and they feel much like an MLM… I’m so glad WA is different!
After I get through a few more of the certification lessons, I am considering joining the WA Affiliate Bootcamp. Eventually, I know I’ll have a good income from everything I’m learning in WA! Might even be able to quit my job someday soon! By far the best money-making lessons on the internet!
I’m VERY happy to hear that you made the RIGHT choice, Susie! As I’ve already told folks on my blog a million times… WA is a no-brainer because no other platform comes close to what Kyle and Carson have been building for over a decade. I think it’s truly awesome that the pair of internet marketing legends not only give you a free starter account, but you get your first premium membership month for only $19. Talk about a bargain and a half, right? It also gives you plenty of time to see everything on offer inside the community.
It’s great to know that you’re thoroughly enjoying yourself as a member and also getting the right training and help when required. And of course, you’re always gonna get that one rude individual in any online marketing community. Like you say, their day probably didn’t go as planned (whether it was personal or business), so they needed to vent lol. But people are people, and we are all guilty of venting somewhere on the web.
I think WA is only really overwhelming if you let it. When you follow Kyle’s training, put in the hard work, and connect with the community when you want or need to, then you can easily focus on getting a successful business built up. It’s only when you engage in a lot of conversations within the community, that things feel overwhelming and you lose focus on your business. You’re in full control of where your time and effort is spent.
Focus on your online business first, and then connect with the community to offer/request support and network with folks. 🙂
The great thing about niches is that even the unique ones like yours can be profitable. Simply stick with the training and you will succeed, Susie! Indeed, WA sure gives us that amazing satisfaction of knowing that we are receiving MASSIVE amounts of value for only a small monthly or yearly membership cost.
I certainly know where you’re coming from with the majority of training programs out there owned by “GURUS” who do a lot of the time, charge extortionate fees (aka upsells) for the purposes of ripping us off (especially newbies). And as for “Multi-Level-Marketing”, don’t even get me started on that business concept. MLMers make my blood boil, particularly with all their hype LOL.
Good for you! The WA Bootcamp is AWESOME, and you’ll be helping a lot more folks to change their lives around. Stick with the training, work hard, give it enough time, and you will be in a position to chuck in your job and never have to work for an employer ever again.
I recently rejoined WA when they made an offer to ex-members. I thought that for the discounted price they were offering for the first month, it couldn’t hurt to try it out — and I was right! I was planning only to check out what’s new, but I ended up staying after the first month!
I really like the new SiteContent feature; as a writer, I find it very useful. I also like that they are now updating and releasing the new version of the affiliate Bootcamp. And of course, Jay’s webinars rock.
That’s so awesome to hear, Ben! 😀
You made the right choice to return to the community because there’s NOTHING better out there. This may seem biased of me, but this is from my own experiences as an internet marketer, after going through training program after program and scam after scam, etc. You discover that a lot of programs under-deliver and some don’t even deliver on their promises at all.
WA is the best internet and affiliate marketing community. Period.
Yeah, the new ‘SiteContent’ feature really is awesome because it helps you to streamline your blog content. For example; Kyle and Carson’s new tool helps you to set writing goals for the number of posts, paragraphs and word count, etc. It even has a built-in spell checker, and the really cool part is that ‘SiteContent’ automatically publishes your content straight to your WordPress blog at the click of a mouse button, once you’re happy with it.
There are other cool aspects of the new tool with more features on the way too. I’ll shortly be updating this review with all the juicy info on WA’s new addition.
OH YEAH… The Affiliate Bootcamp training is being freshened up as we speak, so this is yet ANOTHER reason for newbies to become a part of the WA community! Indeed, Jay’s webinars are awesome. And with 1 new training webinar created by Jay every Friday, we are constantly learning new stuff all the while. I LOVE IT!
Hi, Neil! I’m part of this WA community as well and I’m enjoying it all the way.
I’m still a beginner but I’m striving to reach that income goal same as you, and to the people new, this is really worth it!
Just put your time into it, work hard and you will get the results you expect from WA. Thanks for sharing this affiliate marketing opportunity.
Hey, Mario! 😀
EXCELLENT! I’m so happy that you’re lovin’ WA and working hard to accomplish your income goals.
Indeed, when folks are willing to implement Kyle’s training, they can build a successful long-term business on the internet.
It’s a pleasure, man!
WA is a very successful platform for learning affiliate marketing. I am also interested in affiliate marketing and I recommend this WA program, and the starter account is free. It’s very good. Nil
I agree with you, Nil! 🙂
WAe is a PHENOMENAL platform for equipping you with all the resources required for a profitable affiliate business.
Glad to hear it because affiliate marketing is a smart move!
Thanks for the positive feedback.
You are right on with your review of Wealthy Affiliate. I’ve only been here for a week or two, but this is the most helpful thing I’ve ever found for getting a blog rolling.
And you are so right, it is not a product, it is a tool. And you have to put in the work to get the results. Great post!
Thanks, Catie! 🙂
It’s really awesome to know you’ve not been a member of WA for that long and you’re already making progress on your new blog. Congrats!
When you follow WA’s training and really invest in yourself, you’ll build an amazing business that turns over a real income. At the end of the day, it’s all about taking action on what you learn, using the tools provided, and asking for help when needed.
Wow! Fantastically detailed WA review. Never seen one with so much content for people to read.
I started affiliate marketing on my own over a year ago. I built up two sites and was slowing doing okay on my own, but I was not making as much as I thought I should. I did some research and figured out I had some bad SEO practices and tried to find a place to teach me the in and outs of SEO.
Eventually, I came across WA back around January 2017, or it might have even been late 2016. Anyway, I took some free training and learned some things I had done wrong. I made some changes to my sites and sure enough a month later my page hits started going up.
I decided to officially join a few months ago, and it’s the best thing I ever did. Started a third website now and after 17 days have 7 solid pages and 23 solid blog posts. I write as a day job so I am pretty good at pounding out lots of words.
Anyway, great review. I highly suggest it to anybody and everybody!
Cheers for the compliments, TD Bauer! 🙂 One does try lol.
Good on ya for having the courage to start out on your own with an online business. OK, you struggled, but you didn’t give up on blogging. Unfortunately, without the right training, tools, and support, nobody can succeed at earning an income on the net. So WA was definitely a step in the right direction for you.
WOW, it didn’t take you long to make the necessary improvements on your blog. Well Done on implementing WA’s training and increasing your traffic!
Good stuff, man! It’s pretty sweet that you’re making fantastic progress with your blogging efforts, and it’s proof that WA works!
Thanks for your WA recommendation too. Rock on!
Hi Neil! I found your review on Wealthy Affiliate really accurate because I myself am a member of it and I find every bit of it true!
I also liked how you managed to write it in such a comprehensive manner but still made it really easy for internet marketing newbies to understand!
Will definitely check out your other blog posts on affiliate marketing and bookmark this WA review!
It’s always fab to hear feedback from other WA community members. 🙂
I appreciate the compliments, and I aim to make all of my reviews simple for noobs to follow.
That’s great, and I hope you find my blog invaluable!
Great Review! I couldn’t agree with you more that WA is one of the best platforms to utilize to grow an online business.
I joined about a month ago and it was worth every penny. Tho I have not made any money yet I have a great start and I understand that building any sustainable business, in any field, is a process.
It really depends on the person working the process to determine how fast it grows. So if they’re not willing to put in the work, they won’t see the benefits but that doesn’t mean the process doesn’t work.
So great post and keep up the good work!
Cheers, bud! 🙂
There are a lot of other training programs out there to join, but I’ve not found a single one yet that can compete with the value inside WA, especially with WA’s low membership fees too.
Glad to hear you’re loving the community, man! At the moment you’re laying down the foundations of your online based business, but as it continues to grow over the coming months, you can earn a full-time income. Once you make your very first affiliate commission, you’ll go on to generate more of them.
Yeah, that’s right! Each WA member learns and works at their own speed. Some folks may want to skyrocket their businesses within a few short months of blogging consistently 7 days a week. Whereas others will gradually work their way to success at a steady pace.
The thing with peeps who don’t put in the work, they will always blame “the training system” for their failures. WA pays off for folks who are prepared to work hard at the end of the day.
Thanks very much!
Being a premium member at WA for a long time, I cannot agree more with your review.
One thing that I didn’t see in your review is that a lot’s of members who are new and less experienced than some are trying to give advice and answer the questions without knowing the subject.
It can lead other members in the wrong direction, which can hurt their business.
Thanks for the great and thorough review!
That’s AWESOME, Nenad! By the sounds of things, you’re another successful member of WA!
I do see where you’re coming from with newbies. Yeah, there can be some who give out the wrong advice to members. But then again, there are noobs who also give out some great advice to the community. It’s a mixture of both lol.
I don’t really see it as a major con with WA because members do have the option of taking advice from less experienced members or more seasoned marketers (like you and me). 😉 Besides, if folks stick to the step-by-step training from Kyle, they won’t go wrong.
You’re very welcome, man!
What is it that you are selling or doing or what service is it that you are providing?
Without something like this then you are just another MLM looking to make money from convincing enough ‘suckers’ to get in line and to get other ‘suckers’ to join them.
If you browse my blog, nowhere will you see me promoting a single MLM or pyramid scheme. 😉 MLM is a lousy business model, and I’m against it.
On my site, I only recommend effective tools and the best training platforms for helping newbies to become successful affiliate marketers.
If you’re referring to my review of WA, then I’m recommending a platform that provides you with step-by-step training, free WordPress websites, and support from a community of Marketers around the clock 7 days a week for building a profitable business as an affiliate.
However, I do agree with you on the “sucker” part about MLM lol.
it’s pretty hard to find a service in the make money online/internet marketing niche. Many of those are get rich quick schemes that don’t work.
I’ve joined WA back in 2014 with a background of being a victim of online scams. They promise you fast money, but they lack to deliver.
As a fellow member, I can only say that WA delivers. When you build an online business, you need the right tools to build it.
WordPress hosting, SSL certificate, support, training. All this is required if you want to be successful online.
So, instead of another product in this industry, I call WA a College-like community.
You still have to work hard and put into action what you learn. If people are not willing to work towards their goals, then I’m afraid they have to stick with the get rich quick promises and keep failing.
WA, then won’t cut it for those people.
Great review. Thanks for sharing.
I couldn’t agree more with you when it comes to hyped up schemes. The MMO niche is pretty competitive because there so many people searching for ways of making money and just wanting better lives for themselves and their families. Unfortunately, it also results in unethical individuals creating scams and easily becoming wealthy from the vulnerable. I think what we need is a modern online version of Robin Hood – someone who takes EVERYTHING from the scammers to give back to the victims lol.
WOW! You’ve been with WA for a while! And I can certainly see where you’re coming from with fake “make money fast” opportunities because I’ve been there many times myself. It’s not pretty!
WA certainly delivers incredible value for your monthly/annual membership fee. You’ll not find any other program remotely close to WA that provides all the necessary resources required for a lucrative business on the web. In my opinion, WA is nothing short of an “Internet Marketing College of Excellence” that produces highly successful Entrepreneurs in various niches. So eat your hearts out, Oxford, and Harvard lol.
Oh yeah, hard work + time are also definitely required for success, without question. Success never manifests from laziness! WA is reserved for the “go-getters” who really want something out of life.
It’s a pleasure!
Great review on WA, I only recently just signed up as a premium member and slowly starting to get the hang of things.
the community at WA is really great and I’ve been receiving a lot of help from other members as well. If not for the training content there, the chances of me having success are slim. I will follow you there and hope to chat with you more.
Thank You kindly, William!
AWESOME! You’re definitely going places with WA. I assure you that! It does take time but stick with the training, follow it to a T, and you’ll build a magnificent online business + a fantastic income to reflect your hard work.
I’m pleased you’re making headway with your business and getting lots of support from the community. That’s what us WA community members are here for… to offer you assistance every step of the way, man! 😉
You’ve certainly hit the nail on the head there. Training, support, and also not to mention the right tools, are the fundamental keys to success. Without any of these aspects in place, your online business becomes cyber dust.
I look forward to the connection and helping you further with your online biz, William!
I would like to say that I also highly recommend WA and applaud you for writing such a great review for your readers. I have been with WA for a little over a month and I have been able to accomplish more than I ever imagined in such a short period of time.
I have a fully functioning website that gets better every week. I have an understanding of SEO and other important terms/strategies. I also have 4 affiliate programs I am a part of, all because of the training I have received at WA. The community is amazing. I would tell anyone looking to start an online business to give it a try!
SWEET, Thank You kindly, Scott!
Well Done, that man! 4 weeks is an extremely short time but you sure have made the most of that time by learning some Internet Marketing skills. Good for you for creating your first WordPress website. The more content you add to your site, the bigger it will grow over time, thus building a successful business.
That’s great! Once you start learning SEO and other IM strategies, you’ll find that they’re easy to grasp and implement. Cool, you’ll have plenty of affiliate products to choose from for earning revenue. 😉 WA certainly is that golden ticket to a brighter future for you and anyone who decides to take part and work hard.
Thanks for sharing your positive experiences and encouraging others to have a crack at WA!
I’ve always dreamed of becoming independent of a job. Running my business online and earning money in my sleep. I’d like to finally be able to travel the world and live the best, most relaxing lifestyle possible. Imagine traveling the world non-stop for four years! What’s the success rate of this WA thing?
Doesn’t everyone, Dan! 😉 “JOBS” absolutely SUCK!
You can sure make money in your sleep and also live the kind of lifestyle you through building a website and affiliate marketing. You’ve just gotta work hard at your online business until it takes off. I certainly can imagine traveling around the world, enjoying the beaches of the world and checking out different cultures. I’ve done a little traveling already, but I aim to do much more in the coming years ahead with my internet income. At WA, your dreams are 100% possible.
I can’t actually give you a success rate figure because I don’t hold that information, lol. But from what I’ve seen in the WA community so far, a lot of people are making money from their online businesses. Some earning $100’s and some generating $1,000s/$10’000s per month. It all depends on how long you’ve been a member and how much time + effort you invest in your online biz. Everyone’s level of success varies. But I can promise you one thing: If you follow the WA training and work hard enough, your success rate will be pretty high.
This was the most comprehensive review of Wealthy Affiliate I have seen! I have to say, I am in full agreement with everything you wrote because if it were not for WA, there is no way one of my blog posts would have earned $5000 in the last 3 months.
I am still stoked to be part of WA and I know that in some ways I have only just scraped the surface of the full potential for growing a business that WA offers. Great post!
Thanks, Liz! Glad to hear it! 😀
WOW! Congratulations on earning such a big amount of money! $5K is a great achievement, especially over a 3 month period. I think there are some “JOBS” that don’t even pay that kinda money in 5 – 6 months lol. It just proves that if there’s a $ figure that you wanna generate from your you can do it through working hard.
Your review of WA is awesome!
As a Premium member of WA, I’ve learned not only how to build websites in less than 30 seconds, but also how to populate them with excellent content that gets ranked in Google. The result of this knowledge is, of course, an income generated online.
Now, I am no “guru” when it comes to website-building and SEO, but I can guarantee I know more than 99% of the people in the world. And I believe this is true for anyone who follows WA’s training, even for just a month or so.
Again, thanks for the great review – you went above and beyond here, providing information on literally every aspect of WA. My hat goes off to you. 🙂
Cheers, Ian! 😀
Good stuff, man! When you follow the training at WA, apply it, and work hard – You can build an awesome online business. You’re certainly on the right path, Ian! Anyone (complete beginner – to expert) can succeed as a member of WA.
To be honest, you wouldn’t wanna join the circle of Gurus because they don’t exactly have great reputations, in my eyes. Creating WordPress sites and learning keyword research + SEO is so easy when you learn how to do it. And you’re right… When it comes to building a business online, you do have more knowledge than the majority of people because it’s a specialized skill. 😉 But like you say, it’s a skill that anyone can learn, providing they are prepared to learn and apply themselves.
You’re very welcome!
Thank You very much, kind sir! There’s still more cool information I’ll be adding to this review…
Great review! I came across WA over a year ago. I got my free website, starting as a free member like most do. After a few lessons, I realized how powerful this was and upgraded my membership. The lessons teach step by step how to build your website the right way from the get-go and how to monetize it.
The community is probably the best part of it for me. Not only do you have Kyle and Carson teaching you, you also have thousands of members who are willing to help you at a moment’s notice. Have a question? Just post it and the answers start rolling in. I recommend WA to anyone wanting to start an online business.
Thanks very much, Andres!
That’s awesome, bud! It seems like you’ve been a WA member for quite a while, and in fact, 12 months is enough time to build a massively successful biz on the web. 😀 You’re certainly experiencing the true awesomeness of WA, and I agree with everything you’re saying because you’ve pointed out some true facts. WA is just one of those multi-functional platforms that’s hard not to love! EVERY aspect of the community is phenomenal!
Cheers for your WA recommendation!
I joined Wealthy Affiliate last year but didn’t really take action until Christmas. Now I regret procrastinating as the courses are easy to follow and the community is fantastic.
I got my site up and running within a few weeks and I’m already posting about my favorite topics. Their training is great, as is the help. But the best part of WA must be the ability to look up questions or ask in the chat, and it gets answered so quickly.
The main thing is that you decided to take that first step towards creating a successful business online. Some people join Internet Marketing training platforms, take no action, and winge about not making any money, lol. So give yourself a huge pat on the back for being part of the small percentage of marketers who put in the work. 🙂 Yeah, procrastination sucks! But you’ll soon be able to make up for that short delay. 😉 Glad to hear you’re loving your time at WA!
It’s awesome to hear that you’re making progress with your niche site! When you have a passion, you can have some much fun earning an income on the net. More people should be doing what we’re doing instead of working life-sucking jobs, not being able to spend much free time with the family, and drowning in debt.
The step-by-step training + support at WA truly is a godsend. Without any of it, it would be almost impossible to succeed. I certainly agree with you when it comes to live chat because there are always friendly members with all different levels of experience who are willing to help you at the drop of a hat.
Great and very interesting review about WA!
I joined WA in December last year with no knowledge of Internet Marketing or advertising but with minor knowledge about computer… that means I know how to use a computer, laptop, iPad, and iPhone. Since I have joined WA, I am learning every day something new! The training at WA, especially the walkthrough videos, is really excellent! I had a lot of fun with building my first website! There is so much to learn! I am really proud to be a Premium Member of WA.
Your compliments are very much appreciated, Balsam! 🙂
Fantastic! It just goes to show that even inexperienced can join WA, learn Internet Marketing skills and build successful Affiliate Marketing businesses. Anyone who’s willing to learn with WA and consistently put that knowledge into practice can earn the level of income they choose.
Each time you learn something new and apply it, you’ll build a massive business! It’s so awesome to hear that you’re loving every minute of being a member of WA, building out your blog, and picking up brand new skills along the way.
Thanks for your review.
With all the choices out there, it helps to have some ideas of how it works.
Earning an income and doing what you love doing is the dream of many. Your review should help anyone on the fence about the venture.
So you think it is the best way to learn how to do this stuff?
There is a lot to learn. Based on your review, I would feel confident about suggesting WA to someone else.
It’s my pleasure, Sami!
The thing with a lot of internet/affiliate marketing training platforms and reviews, they can be very vague when it comes to the training, tools, and support they offer. So, I want to give my readers as much information as possible, so they know exactly how much value they’ll be receiving from the WA community.
Indeed! Many people do dream about making money from their passions but very few know how to get started and go about it. So yeah, my aim here is to give my readers as much information as possible to help them see the potential in WA and also in themselves.
From my years of experience as an affiliate marketer, I can’t highly recommend WA enough as the place to build a successful digital business. In fact, I know WA is THE best platform out there for any newbie to get started and work towards their future as an Entrepreneur.
Yep, there is certainly a lot to learn at WA. But when you break down the training bit-by-bit and make steady progress with your website every day, you’ll eventually be moving mountains!
I’m new to Wealthy Affiliate, have been here for a week. And I think I already noticed some of all benefits you mention in your review. And the community does seem fantastic:) The best thing so far and that you also mention here is the training. I have been blogging for years but never really understood how to earn some money from it. I will bookmark this post and come back to read again, lots of great information.
Welcome to the community! Glad to have you on board, Linda! 😀
That’s awesome! Even after your first day of being a member of WA and implementing the training, you’ll discover the amazing benefits. I’m happy to hear that you’re having a great time at WA too.
You’ve certainly been blogging for a while. But at least now, WA will put you on the right path to success and a full-time income.
Thanks very much! I hope to hear from you again very soon.
I really enjoyed your review of Kyle & Carsons’ Masterpiece that is WA.
I joined in July of 2016 and I can’t get enough of it. I do get distracted quite a bit because of all the resources and training available, but to me, that is not a bad thing.
I really can not stress enough to anyone who reads this, that WA is the Real Deal. It truly has everything needed to create & maintain very successful internet businesses.
Brady (Brady1 in WA)
Cheers, and glad you loved my article! WA is a masterpiece and a half. 😉
WA sure can be very addictive but that’s an extremely good thing. I do agree that there’s a heck of a lot of training being created but the more you learn and apply, the more you’ll earn online, right?
Thank You, Brady… I really appreciate your positive feedback and own mini-review of WA!
I certainly don’t disagree with you, bud!
Wishing you LOTS of success.
Well, I must say thus far WA has been a very interesting experience for me. I really like the courses and there’s always help available. The more I discover about online marketing, the more exciting it becomes for me.
I wish I had found something like this years ago, but, as they say, “It’s Never Too Late”. It’s definitely not a get rich quick scheme. But, if you stick with it and apply what you’re learning, I can really see benefiting from this in the long term.
The main thing is, focus on something you love doing. if you do that, it really doesn’t seem like work; it feels more like a hobby.
It’s nice to know your WA experience is an awesome one, SanShar! 😀
When you have a passion that you’re generating an online income from, there’s nothing more exciting than that.
Yeah, you’re spot on. I think we’ve all reached a point where we wished we had done something sooner but the most important thing is that you’re working on your future “now” in the present. Many people spend their lives wishing for more but never do anything about what they want in life. But WA is that stepping stone to help folks attain financial freedom and get what they deserve.
WA offers individuals the opportunity to create long-term success online, and those willing to put in the time and effort will definitely reap the rewards. However, if people are searching for ways to get rich quick (which doesn’t exist), WA is NOT the platform for them at all. Only serious people join WA.
I couldn’t agree more! Why would you want to be stuck in a low paid and unfulfilling job forever when you have the opportunity to follow your passion, do something fun, amazing, life-changing, and become time/financially free, huh?
One of my favorite things about WA is the ability to ask questions and get replies within just a few minutes. The members at WA are really helpful. Not only that, keeping up with your fellow internet marketers really helps in general. It gives a feeling that you’re not alone, that we are all in this together. We are all trying to succeed at this “make money online” thing.
I also really like it when members create training videos. I like learning by watching videos because you get to see what the other person is doing, “over the shoulder” so to speak. I can’t think of anywhere else online where so much fresh training is being created all the time.
That sure is one of the many awesome aspects of WA, Marcus! 🙂
With some Affiliate Marketing training communities that don’t offer 24/7 live help, you could be waiting hours or maybe days for support. You simply can’t afford to delay your online success. I totally agree with everything you’re saying because “support” and “Paying it Forward” are highly important aspects required for earning an income from your website(s).
At Wealthy Affiliate, we aren’t just a community and a bunch of friends but we a “TEAM” of dedicated business owners helping one another to the top. Teamwork, makes the dream work!
Yep, the training is certainly amazing! Kyle (the co-founder of WA) teaches you how to build a successful online business step-by-step. And community members are free to create additional training to help others succeed further. The training is up-to-date and forever evolving. That’s one of the best parts I love about the program. Video training definitely beats written training, wouldn’t you agree?
In all honesty, I think there are very few Internet Marketing training platforms that provide current training that works. WA is ahead of every program!
Thanks for the review. Wealthy Affiliate seems like it could have some potential. I’m currently working a full-time job that I hate. I would really like to get into a business of my own. I’ll have to take a look at the WA page and see if it’s right for me. Thank You again.
You’re very welcome, Derek!
WA has awesome and unlimited potential, man! 🙂 Sorry to hear about your job. But if it makes you feel better, we’ve all worked in jobs that drain the life out of us.
That’s great! You’re definitely at the right website. Join WA and you’ll receive my personal support too.
I joined Wealthy Affiliate in Jan 2016 and to be honest the ride along has been awesome. WA has very comprehensive tutorials and a very active community.
The support is very good, there are people to help you any time you want. So I would love to back you Neil in telling all those who dream of making money online to join WA and within months your life will change. This review of WA is just perfect.
Good for you, Cheek! 😀
It just goes to show that with the right online education and support in place, anybody who has a desire to build a successful online business, will do! But of course, hard work and tools are also necessary for success, lol.
I agree with you… I think the support at WA is the best you’ll ever receive.
Thanks, man! I really appreciate your support when it comes to WA too.
Wealthy Affiliate is the only place I would recommend someone learn how to make money online. It has been a life-changing experience for me.
I haven’t been a member as long as you have, but I’m sure I’ll be a member for the rest of my days. The training is evolving with the internet and the support is wonderful.
We are living during an amazing time. Anyone with basic computer skills can earn a full-time income from home through the training they get at WA.
I’m certainly not disagreeing with you there, Gary! It’s AWESOME to hear you’re a success! If people are willing to follow WA’s training and work hard, they will succeed as online business owners. Out of all the programs I’ve joined in the past – (Affilorama, Empower Network, and Aspire Digital Altitude to name a few) – none have ever provided me with the same level of value as WA. 😀
I’ve only been a member of WA for 3 years, lol. I really don’t blame you because why would you pass up on an opportunity that’s already helping you to create financial freedom?! I too am gonna be a lifelong member of the community because there’s certainly nowhere else I’d rather be online.
That’s the beauty of WA because these days, it’s hard to come by platforms that offer up-to-date training “that works” and awesome 24/7 support. I agree with you 100%… There has never been a bigger opportunity to earn a living, than the one we have today. WA + the internet = MASSIVE SUCCESS!
I think this is one of the best Wealthy Affiliate reviews I’ve read.
I agree; online marketing has changed since the time of writing Squidoo articles. In my opinion, it’s become more polished and professional.
WA is the platform to learn the ropes and pick up on this professionalism, as it’s really promoted in the training, as well as within the community.
Thanks for the information.
10 minutes well spent.
Best of success to you,
Thanks ever so much for the compliment, man! Well, one does try to strive for the best review! 😉 LOL.
The Squidoo days were great because you could get your lenses ranked in Google in just a matter of weeks and start to make commissions. But yeah, the internet marketing world has improved drastically since the days of Squidoo and easy high search engine rankings.
I couldn’t agree with you more, dude! WA definitely comes out on top when compared to the majority of “low-quality” affiliate marketing training platforms and communities available online.
You’re very welcome, and I really do appreciate your feedback.
Thank You, Kirk!
Great WA review. I’m also a member and I can say it’s the best choice for learning affiliate marketing and SEO. And a lot of other things. People are always helpful and the thing is you can get to earn a really nice income with some time in. Keep it up
Fantastic, and AWESOME choice! 😀
WA certainly is the best program without a single doubt because I have been a member of so many other training programs that have come and gone due to “outdated” training material and tools that basically became ineffective. But WA is such a breath of fresh air and I’m so glad I started out as a free member of the community because I have traveled so far with my website and my online business, which is leading to a successful income.
Where affiliate marketing, SEO, website building, keyword research, content writing, and help + support from the people within the community is concerned, there will never ever be a program out there that’s good enough to match WA. Period.
You’re completely spot on, Aless!
Thank you for the very detailed review of WA. It is especially helpful to read from someone who has used the program and is still with the program given there are so many programs on the net which come and go. It also shows that WA is a genuine platform for users to learn and grow, without unrealistic promises just to get users to sign up.
It was nothing, Marcus! 🙂
I’m very glad to hear my WA experiences are invaluable to you. Trust me, it had taken me a number of years before I discovered WA because I was leaping from one “dead-end” digital business education program to another, with very little success at making money.
Yeah, it sure does prove that WA is totally 100% genuine because otherwise, this website wouldn’t exist right now, and I definitely wouldn’t be earning a single cent on the net! There are far too many “false-promise” programs out there to count! LOL.
WA has been the next level for me and my business. About a year ago I started a virtual assistant business and now I’m developing a blog to help others who want to work from home. WA has been the game changer for making this happen.
I totally recommend WA to anyone who is on the fence.
Sweet! I’m very pleased to hear you’re getting some amazing results and success from your online business by using the training taught at the WA community! By the sounds of things, you’re making awesome progress with your blog. So congratulations, and I applaud you for your hard work and dedication to helping other people make money and escape their “life-sentences”, known as JOBS! LOL.
Thanks for recommending WA as well. 🙂
Hi there, Neil!
I am happy to read from someone like you who has been a member of WA longer and is still hanging there. This tells me that hard work and patience really does pay.
I have been a member for a few months now and it’s been tough but I know nothing good comes easy. I love the lessons we get at WA and I love the community even more.
Thank You for the kind words, and I will be hanging around the WA community until the end of my days! 😀 Believe me, it really does! And I’m 100% certain that all members of WA will say the same thing too!
It’s great that you’re working hard at your online business to pave the way for your future. Yes, it is tough to succeed on the internet, and I agree with you because you receive back from your website exactly what you put into it. If you want MASSIVE results, then you take MASSIVE action!
I’m totally with you all the way on WA!
I’ve been using WA. I started a blog, wrote some posts and I’m enjoying it. However, I am unsure if I should pursue it on a paid basis. I would like to generate some income online, and I enjoy writing but my time is limited. It seems to be a whole lot of information to suck up and for $49 a month, I won’t get through it very fast. I feel the months will go by and I won’t have learned enough to even cover the costs of my WA membership.
How long did it take you to start earning with affiliate marketing?
Awesome, Brendo! You’re certainly on the right path towards online success with your business. 😀
YES, definitely continue as a Premium member of WA because opportunities like this are very rare, and you would simply be flushing your future down the toilet if you don’t invest in yourself! If you’re pushed for time, then I would highly recommend getting up a few hours earlier in the mornings, staying up later in the evenings or ditching the unimportant tasks to make time. At the end of the day it’s your online business, so your success is dependent on the amount of effort and time you’re putting into it.
“Knowledge is Power”, my friend! More training and information, the better! The more information you learn means your online business will continually evolve, you’ll help more people and generate more revenue. $49 each month or even $359 per year for your WA membership is such a small price for long-term success and financial freedom, wouldn’t you agree?
The speed at which you build your online business is entirely your decision. Even if you do build it slowly, eventually the income you earn will cover your WA membership costs and you’ll be in profit too! So in fact, WA will be free!
I started Affiliate Marketing a long time ago, in the days when it was easy to succeed as a Squidoo lensmaster. Within 3 weeks of setting up and working on my first Squidoo lens, I was making money online from promoting Halloween costumes. However, today it takes a little while longer than 3 weeks to earn as an affiliate, and WA will show you how!
Hi, Neil. Wealthy Affiliate is a great community to begin learning how to start an online business. The Community is outstanding, I mean the support and information you get it always there, people are ready to help.
I have been part of WA for a short time but I feel that I’m on the right path.
I am pleased to hear your experiences with WA are positive ones. 🙂 You are certainly on the correct path to online success. Thanks for your thoughts.
What a fantastic review of The WA University! I as a Premium member and a long time Web Designer have gained so much business knowledge from this company.
The training is amazing, the community is phenomenal and the opportunity to succeed within WA is astounding.
For anyone looking for a sound way to earn an income online, follow Neil through to WA, you won’t regret it.
Thanks! You sure do know how to brighten up my day 😀 That’s Fantastic! And the amazing thing about WA is that you actually earn money while you learn to build your online business and equip yourself with the skills you need.
I couldn’t agree with you more on the training, the community and the opportunity to earn a full-time living as well as making new friends along the way. Thanks ever so much for recommending WA too!
Yes, I am tired of being scammed out of my money. Actually, I don’t think I’ve been scammed but people have tried.
I’m impressed with what and how much Wealthy Affiliate has to offer. Two free websites and 10 free trainings. Free website hosting and 25 websites at the premium level and all for only $49 a month. Wow! That’s amazing!
It sounds like WA has a lot to offer for very little money and a community that is willing to help.
What has kept you with WA this long?
A lot of people can relate to your online scamming experiences, Rawl! I applaud you for avoiding the scam traps.
So you should be impressed because I’m also totally blown away by the incredible benefits that WA offers for such a tiny monthly or yearly membership cost! You will never ever come across a community and a training platform like it!
Because I have been burned by a lot of online scams in the past, I was a little skeptical when I joined WA as a Free member. But as I progressed through the 10 Free lessons, it was clear to see that the program was completely LEGIT, and so I upgraded to monthly premium. As I made money online from applying the training, I then upgraded to the yearly membership as I could see real value in the platform and a successful future on the internet.
I love how the people are always friendly and there for you, the training is the best I have ever had, and the tools actually work.
I love my website, and I’m making money with it! WA Rocks! 😀
What separates WA for me from other programs out there is they actually teach you from the ground up; how to make it online. They don’t give you false promises and they tell you up front it’s going to take work BUT… you have all the tools and support to succeed right here.
Also, because it’s a dynamic learning platform, there is always room to improve, seek help and tweak your sites.
By far the best online training out there.
I love your perspective on WA because it’s so true, SamDal! These days, it’s rare to find legit training programs on the web that easily walk newbies through the online business building basics they need to know and apply, and how to turn their businesses into giant skyscrapers!
With WA, you have access to everything you will ever need in one place. WA couldn’t be more perfect if it tried!
As the internet marketing industry evolves, so does the WA community. Brilliant! 🙂
I can’t argue with that! WA is “the” best training platform for Affiliate Marketers!
That is a great and accurate review of WA. The training is so super simplified and in small bite-sized chunks you actually end up learning more than you realize. I was actually thinking I did not learn much, then again when I log in and use google analytics and google webmaster tools daily, I get a nice reminder of how far I have come and how much I have learned in a very short period.
WA is missing a complete 10 lesson course on SEO and how to improve current rankings, competition analysis, youtube videos and video SEO, Podcasting and understanding Google Webmaster tools and Using Google Analytics. Adding those 6 courses would make it complete training and perhaps adding in an optional course on setting up membership sites.
Great training none the less. I advise any who are interested or currently going through the training to Join Jay’s free weekly live webinars. Great addition to the training! oh and free!
Thanks, man! It sure is, and when the training at WA is broken down into segments, it’s a lot easier to absorb and apply. Yeah, you’re right because it does feel that way sometimes, lol. When you piece together your progress, you then see the knowledge and experience you have gained in building an online business.
However, saying that! There are plenty of training resources available within WA that do cover the topics you have mentioned. Whatever online business building aspect you want help with, there are training videos + written content that will guide you. 🙂
Jay’s weekly webinars sure are Awesome, and there’s some Fantastic additional training available.
I like the review of WA!!! I would also recommend WA to all who would like to start and succeed in online business.
What I can add is that one needs to be dedicated and properly motivated, as it takes a bit of time to start making money online.
Thanks, my friend! 🙂
I also appreciate your recommendation of WA. WA is definitely a No-Brainer for those wanting to earn money online legitimately. I do agree with you on that! If you want to build a successful online business, you have to throw your whole self into it with no excuses! WA is not for “Quitters” or “Excuse Makers” because those do not succeed online, period!
The people who truly believe in themselves, apply hard work and give it time – SUCCEED!
Hi Neil! Great review! Actually, I am for looking an online business that I could start with. I have tried several products and nothing seems to work. I thought that if the price of the product is high, the higher the chance of earning from it. As I have read that WA is your #1 recommendation, can I immediately join in even though I have no experience?
Well, you have certainly found “the” Affiliate Marketing training platform and community you’ve been searching for to help you get started right away with your new online biz! Yeah, there are a lot of training programs on the internet that will scam you just for the sake of extracting your money and providing you with nothing of value in return, so you gotta be careful online because I’ve invested in many scams too, but now I’m a member of WA, that will never happen again!
That’s what you would think, but in reality, with a lot of “overpriced” programs, you will often discover that the higher the prices – further “upsells” are offered to you, and the tools, training, and support fail to meet your expectations.
YES, definitely! You can become a member of WA as a Novice with ZERO experience, which is the beauty of this training program! 😀
Hey Neil, I refuse to give up on affiliate marketing which is a side-step from network marketing as it relates to joining a particular company. I’m currently with another company called MOBE. But they were draining me dry with $99/mo inner circle membership and I would have to spend another $25k to really get Top Commissions. So, I wanted to take a step back away from that and find something else to do that will generate revenue without having to take out a loan.
At long last, I found someone through Periscope app and now I have read your info about Wealthy Affiliate. The reviews have inspired my interest level and reading this Web page has given me the drive to dust myself and try again. I am a real estate investor but I always believe in building an online business and multiple streams of income. I hope that you reach out to me and let me know how technical is the training?
Good On Ya, my friend! It’s the people who keep pushing forward with their online businesses and refuse to quit, are the ones who achieve online success, so stick to Affiliate Marketing, learn how to build your online biz, invest effort and time, and you will have all the success you have dreamed of!
The thing I have discovered about Network marketing, is that it takes too long to build, many years of hard work and extra money is required to attend trainings, meetings, events and to purchase merchandise and other resources such as business cards, smart clothing, and personal development books, etc, in order to become successful and a big money earner. Network Marketing is really for people who wish to build teams and enjoy recommending products and services to people through word-of-mouth. It is a good business model, but not the best, in my opinion.
Affiliate Marketing, on the other hand, is less hassle, free to get started with, requires less time needed to make a good level of income, personal development books and events are more of a choice, and less pressure is involved.
There are countless benefits where Affiliate Marketing is concerned, it’s far more enjoyable, it’s more rewarding and it’s the best type of business by miles!
I’m sorry to hear about your bad experiences with My Online Business Empire. It’s a program I would not recommend to any newbie or even anyone because of the high membership costs and further “UPSELLS” involved!
Good for you because you have made the right choice before your finances were swallowed up by MOBE! You can join WA for free and upgrade to premium at $49 per month or even the much better option at $359 per year (saving you money).
The “Good News” for you is that you will never have to take out a loan for WA, and once you apply the lessons taught within the platform, you will be able to build a successful online business and begin to earn the type of income you deserve 😀
That’s awesome, Reggie! I’m very glad to hear my review of WA has steered you in the right direction and helped to pick you up off the ground too! I admire your courage, strength and sheer determination, and you will go far online, especially with my help and support for that extra encouragement!
If you’re into real estate and looking to create multiple income streams online, WA will show and teach you how to do that. The training is for everyone with every level of experience, so when you become a member, you will have access to 10 Free step-by-step lessons on the basic principles of making money online and easily set up your new online business.
Once you upgrade after the 10th lesson, you will unlock more lessons on how to keep building your business further.
The training at WA isn’t Technical because you are shown by walk-through videos and provided with tutorials on how to easily build your Affiliate Marketing biz one step at a time.
I wish you success and I look forward to helping you further…
Excellent Wealthy Affiliate Review. I also used the WA training program to put up 3 sites and now I’m working on my 4th and have been a member for over a year as well.
It’s nice to find a training program that lays out everything step by step as well that is loaded with other training programs through their weekly Webinar Training’s.
For anyone, newbies to advanced people with internet marketing skills, I would recommend WA as the most complete online educational training program.
Wowsers, you have certainly been busy with building websites for yourself, and especially in over 1 year because that’s one heck of an achievement, so well done, you! I’m sure all of your online businesses are booming with your hard work and WA to Thank for that!
Yeah, it definitely is, since there are a whole bunch of dirty online scams out there, so it makes a change to be part of an online training community that’s LEGIT and training is always updated along with the changes on the internet.
Thanks for recommending WA too, and I really appreciated your feedback.
Same to you as well…
I’m also part of the WA community and wish I discovered them earlier. I’m gathering you’re benefiting greatly from the resources and training because you have a high user engagement. Something that Google loves to see!
It’s great seeing awesome results, and I’ve made first place on Google for many pages now. (With more to come)
Let’s continue stepping forward Neil because there’s so much waiting for us if we do.
But I think you know this.
Keep in touch!
That’s fantastic, and I also wish I had found WA a lot sooner! Yep, you have definitely got that part right since it’s the training, tools, help, and support within the WA community that has helped me to build this website and also create conversations with my visitors who find this website through the search engines such as Google and decide to leave their valuable feedback!
Yep, Google absolutely loves visitors and website owners engaging with one another because it not only builds trust with people and Google, but the content evolves, and so higher search engine rankings are rewarded as a result!
Well Done on achieving first-page search engine rankings!
I’m with you all the way, Damien… You and I both know the online success we will accomplish through our efforts!
I definitely will keep in touch!
Also being a member of Wealthy Affiliate, I really enjoyed your review. You have featured many of the important points of the WA platform. When I joined, one of the many things I appreciated was the honesty. You are told you will have to work hard and success will not come overnight. This may not be exactly what a new member wants to hear, but it’s so refreshing to hear the truth when compared to the lies of the “get rich quick schemes”
This really shows what WA is all about, being taught to build an online business in a totally legitimate way. The training is so good and thorough it’s not possible to find training like this elsewhere. I would definitely encourage your readers to try the free trial.
Hey, Peter! That’s Brilliant, and cheers! I think “Honesty” is something that lacks from some of the Affiliate Marketing training programs on the net today, and even at times you’re persuaded to join programs by the creators with their personal stories, hype, and images of sports cars, fancy houses, boats, private planes, piles of cash, checks and vacation destinations that resemble paradise, etc..
This is how WA also separates itself apart from the rest because Kyle tells you exactly how you can start an online business and what you must do to make money online, without any BS involved!
Yep, some people won’t want to hear that hard work is required at WA, but if people really want online success and a full-time income, then LEARNING and HARD WORK are the only ways to achieve it because there are no other options.
It sure does, Peter! I have been sucked in by countless online scams during my time on the web, but Wealthy Affiliate soon showed up like a knight in shining armor and was there to help me pick up the pieces and successfully earn an income.
I couldn’t agree with you more, and thanks very much for your encouragement too 😀
Hello, Neil, You have provided excellent advice here for your reader to discover how to really find success online. I agree with your recommendation of Wealthy Affiliate.
I too had been struggling to make money online prior to ‘discovering’ WA and until you have experienced them you really don’t understand how valuable they are to improving your knowledge and earning capacity online.
Fortunately, people like you are making others aware of them and anyone (from here on this site) can try them out for FREE.
The only warning I would like to convey to your readers is that this is NOT a get rich quick scheme and it is not going to make you rich overnight.
However anyone willing to learn and commit to the program and do the lessons and implement what they learn – Then success is assured.
Thanks, and I really appreciate that! It’s fantastic to hear you came across the WA community, and I also agree with you too because without learning and picking up the necessary skills required to build up an online business from the ground and constantly, learning more advanced internet marketing knowledge as you move forward and the right help and support, it’s virtually impossible for anyone to succeed online.
So WA bridges the gap and gives you all you need for success on the internet.
If I’m succeeding online with WA, then it gives me great satisfaction in recommending it to others and knowing that they too can succeed through consistent hard work and dedication.
Yep, you couldn’t be clearer on the “Get Rich Quick” part because it’simply down to hype and a myth that people should not believe, since it takes hard work and time for a business to blossom and produce real results.
Success surely is possible when people follow the strategy you just outlined 😀
I know about Wealthy Affiliate based on my personal experience. The program is the real deal and can help anyone struggling online to make money. They have all in place, the training, the tools and the most important thing – 24/7 supreme support.
What I like the most about WA is that their program is based on realistic approach and they never make any bold claims or false promises. Because they know that making money online is really not easy. Most people don’t know all the truth about making money and that’s why they very often fall into many scams promising them a quick buck.
WA pays much emphasis on support because the majority of the folks fail online because of lack of support. At WA you are never alone, in the dark and can get support anytime you need it. That’s why, I recommend it to anyone looking for a genuine program.
That’s great! And the more people that also know about WA, the more can be helped to succeed online. Thanks for your thoughts and I agree with what you’re saying, Rufat!
Far too many online scams make bold claims on becoming rich quickly, and it’s these lies and all the hype that people can really do without because it ruins their lives and also damages the reputation of the “online business” industry.
Support is vital if people are to succeed online these days, and the WA community sure does guide people by the hand and show them the path to success on the internet.
I was a beginner when I joined WA and didn’t know anything about affiliate marketing and was really scared if it would work for me or not but the help and support you get in WA sure helped me improve, even the silliest questions are answered and people are very enthusiastic in helping others including you. 🙂
And indeed an AWESOME review!
To be honest, we have all been in the same position as you because it is quite scary when we dive into something completely different, learn new skills and don’t know what to expect from it. I guess we just have to believe in ourselves that we can succeed online, run with it and step out of our comfort zones in order to build a successful internet based business.
The WA community members are all there for one another by helping to “Pay It Forward” and helping you to climb the ladder to success. Thanks for the kind words, and I’m always here if you ever need any help, Shrestha.
Hi Neil, Great review. I can only endorse what many others are saying here about WA.
I first joined in 2009, but like an idiot stepped back and expected success to just happen. Hard work and discipline are the main ingredients, and it wasn’t until early 2014 that I took it more seriously and got down to business. Success will be measured in relation to your work ethic – so anyone new to IM, just get onboard with WA and run with it! One day, you’ll be glad you did.
Thanks, Rob! You have been a member of WA for a good number of years then! That’s the thing with some people because they expect to see quick results from their work online, but when it doesn’t go to plan, they get discouraged and either slow down, stop what they are doing or quit and find a new path.
You’re right when it comes to the hard work part, and I’m glad that you decided to stick with WA and knuckle down with your online biz! Only the hard workers get rewarded 😉
Thanks for your positive words of wisdom, and I wish you success online!
I love WA, it’s so different from all the other online money making programs… this one actually shows you how to build your own business with step by step tutorials… so easy anyone can do it.
It’s the first program I’ve ever used that keeps their promises on you making money. The best thing about it for me is the 24/hr online help from the community… ask anything… someone is sure to help you out… and soon before you know it you’ll be on your way to becoming your own boss
That’s great, and WA certainly is, Annie! I think without the right step-by-step video tutorials on how to build an online business, it’s tough to get a business off the ground because people have no clue as to what to do.
Yeah, there are far too many scams and other training programs that promise the world if you do “X, Y, and Z”, but fail to deliver results. WA is much different!
That’s fantastic! I too love the live 24/7 help and support from WA community members, and I agree with what you say about becoming your own boss in no time.
I have not regretted joining Wealthy Affiliate for one moment. Your WA review is 100% correct. I have gone from strength to strength with this programme. I have worked hard, but every bit of it has been enjoyable. As a total beginner I have been supported all the way.
Hey, AnnieLouisa! I am so happy to hear that, and thanks very much! Congratulations on your achievements so far, and it just shows that anything is possible to accomplish through hard work.
Having fun is also a part of the journey, and I’m glad to hear that WA has been a training program you can rely on. Neil
I could go on and on and on about Wealthy Affiliate and how I too think it’s the best there is out there, but you’ve done a pretty good job of it yourself!!!
I am a member as well, and there just isn’t any better place – period!
Hello, Joanne, and I’m sure you could! 😉
Thank You, I always aim to cover all angles within my program and product reviews. My thoughts on WA, exactly! Neil.
Hello Neil! Wonderful article about Wealthy Affiliate.
I’ve been a premium member for several months, my only regret is that I did not start sooner! I’ve always had dreams of working from home, and WA offers this opportunity to anyone, as long as you are committed and willing to put in the work.
Their many trainings and fantastic support system has helped me to get through the initial difficulties of launching an online business out of what I considered was “just a hobby”. The trainings are designed for absolutely anyone or all ages and experiences.
My favorite thing about WA is its sense of community! Everyone wants to help one another out, I think that’s what makes WA so wonderful. So here’s to our Success, Cheers! : )
Hey there, Rabbit! Thanks, and I’m happy you liked my review 😀
The main thing is you found WA and you went to work on your dreams straight away, so Well Done on taking action!
I agree because when people apply themselves using the training at WA, any goals they have can be reached. It’s truly awesome that WA has helped you to transform your hobby into a real online business that can generate a full-time income for you, and your income will keep growing each month from this point onwards.
Every community member I come across says exactly the same as you, which is great! Same to you, and thanks for your comments.
I joined WA 3 months ago and now I have my own website, indexed by Google and a very interesting future ahead.
So, I have one message for those who have doubts: Go for it, make the free account don’t waste any more time!
Hey, Doru! That is absolutely Brilliant!
When people follow the same footsteps as you with WA, they too can have a website up in no time and start building a successful online business. Thank You very much for your message to people who are reading this review 😀
WA is suitable for all ages, as long as people are committed to building a sustainable online business. It is free of scams and not a get rich quick scheme.
It is completely about building your own business in the right way, with the best platform, and involving the best community inside.
I completely agree with you that if you follow the training step-by-step with full commitment building a long-term successful internet business, you must succeed in life and you owe it to yourself!
Hello there, Calvin!
I’m glad you agree with me on the age thing, and you’re right about the commitment part too! The people who eat, sleep and breath their online businesses are the ones who achieve massive success, the quickest.
But having said that, anyone can achieve success over a period of time by touching their business in the nooks and crannies of their spare time. I suppose it’s just the classic scenario of “Sprint” or “Marathon” 😀
You just took the words right out of my mouth where WA is concerned, and I Thank You for your positive feedback on WA program review. I’ll definitely let you stop by at my website again some time LOL.
Awesome review Neil!
I particularly like the section about what separates Wealthy Affiliate from the rest, and as a WA member myself for almost 18 Months I totally agree.
You certainly won’t regret your decision to join WA that is for sure!
To our continued success,
There are countless benefits that separate WA from other online affiliate training programs, and I would be here all day listing them, so I have just provided people with a little taster for now 😉
WOW!! 18 Months!? It seems to me that you are doing an excellent job of earning online if you have been a member of WA for so long. I congratulate you on your online success, my friend!
Thanks also for the WA recommendation.
Lets see what the next 12 months will bring us, hey?
Absolutely agree with you, Neil!
Wealthy Affiliate is the best program on the internet when it comes to building an Online Business of your own. I’ve fallen into countless scams with those hidden upsells and blackhat techniques back then but after joining WA, my life turned for the better.
I was surprised as to how much knowledge I could learn there and my website looks pretty darn awesome too when I implement it but most importantly, it’s also ranking nicely within Google. I was glad that I never gave up when those scams kicked me down because now, I’m using my experience to write reviews on their evil schemes to help more people avoid them better.
I wish you all the best Neil, great review btw 😀
Thanks, Riaz 😀
I’m glad you think the same about WA! Sorry to hear that, and I’m with you on that one because I too have been sucked in by online scams during the past, so I feel your frustrations.
It’s great to hear that WA has shown you the right path and you deserve it!
SWEET!! It sounds like you’re a pro at building an online business, and I reckon Google must be sending your website a great deal of traffic as well.
There are people who allow themselves to get kicked to the dirt by scams which is a shame, but I like how you found the courage and determination to move on from that and succeed. There is a quote that goes: “If Your Dreams Are Big Enough, Then The Obstacles Don’t Matter.” You and I have both proved this to be true!
I very much look forward to reading some of your experiences on the online scams out there.
Cheers, same to you!
WA is an excellent place to learn and build a business from. I’ve learned so much there. It’s the best investment I’ve ever made. 🙂
WA sure is, Evelyn! I have found nothing else like the program anywhere on the internet, so WA is unbeatable in my eyes. 😀
I’m very glad to hear it, and if you ever need further help with building your online business, you know where to find me.
