Introduction to Wealthy Affiliate

I am in a unique position to offer this review.  I have been a member of Wealthy Affiliate since October 12, 2015, and have experienced all aspects of this website and its product.  You may think my opinion will be bias, but it is far from

You may think my opinion will be bias, but it is far from that since I have been involved in many online companies for the past 10 years.  I have 3 reasons why my Affiliate Program review is solid and unbiased:

Reason 1

I have had the experience of joining other companies online from Dubli, Kyani, Nerium and Melaleuca to name a few.  All with the anticipated excitement of being able to generate an income online from their sales and training at the beginning. Only to be disappointed in the long run because of the lack of support and guidance along with unreasonable tactics.

Reason 2

In all of the companies mentioned above, there was the strong pressure to be a core member by using their products in everything you do in your everyday life.  This was a very expensive thing to do, costing well over $100 per month or more for each of these online companies.  The additional pressure of this requirement besides trying to recruit would be very stressful.

Reason 3

The support of each of the companies in Reason 1 was very limited and would take a lot of time to get a response.  I also have had offers of many other companies from family and friends, that would explain in great detail about the benefits of their products.  All in all, I have had the ability to see a variety of companies online as well as participate with a variety of companies online to say I have experienced to know what is good and what is bad.  I also have had the experience of being able to see what is a scam and what isn’t.


If you are reading this review it is because you are interested in online marketing and looking to make a good decision on where to invest your hard earned money for the best value available.  If you are like me, you have also been burned a few times and are weary of claims that many companies make only to be constantly bombarded with up-sells once you join.  The last 3 companies I joined were due to pressure from family and a friend.

The Pros of Wealthy Affiliate

The Getting Started (Level 1) course is going to lead to the following accomplishments:

  • Setting up your account profile at Wealthy Affiliate
  • Interaction with fellow expert marketers and aspiring marketers via live chat
  • Understanding the process of earning money online
  • Choosing your own niche from scratch
  • Creating your very OWN niche website
  • Setting your website for massive success in search engines
  • Activating website extensions that add many new website features
  • Understanding how to create, find, and install one of over 20,000 plugins on your website
  • Create your very first page of content on your niche website
  • Create relationships with others here at WA and developed your own following

  • Understand the process of finding low competition, high traffic keywords

The above listed is what you get when you begin with a Starter account for 0$, which is an amazing deal! Not only do you get the above listed but you can try all the Premium membership privileges for 7 days free.  You also get Level 1 course, which is 10  complete lessons to get your websites up and running.  Now this is with no  Credit Card, which is unheard of in this industry.  The chart below shows you the benefit of a Starter account compared with a Premium account.  If you decide this Premium is for you then you can get the first month for $19!

I want to show you what you get for absolutely free with the Starter Program.  You will not find another program which offers what Wealthy Affiliate does and there is a good reason!  Wealthy Affiliate has the only program on the internet that can give you this incredible offer for free to try out all of its perks as a Premium member during this 7 day trial period.

The Cons of Wealthy Affiliate

I can honestly say for me there is the downfall of trying to answer all of the emails that are sent to my email address from Wealthy Affiliate!  You see, when you become a member there is a section where you can limit your emails from other members at Wealthy Affiliate, but I didn’t know about this control feature until later.  What happened was that due to my full-time job as a salaryman in Japan, I was very limited for time to invest in my online business, that I ended up spending most of the time answering emails!  I then found the control for this feature and have now been able to focus on my business instead of correspondence.  Corresponding is a positive, though because the community at WA is awesome and incredible.

Another Con for me is that there is so much incredible training available that you want to do them all but don’t have the time to learn them all!


Wealthy Affiliate is for the newbie as well as the seasoned entrepreneur.  It can be for anyone, any race, any language and if you have an internet connection it can be done anywhere!  For a newbie, this is fantastic because you get all the important and needed training to build a solid foundation of knowledge to translate into online success.  For those who have an already successful business, it gives them a whole new level to upscale with all the available tools to further their business online.

It is for EVERYONE and ANYONE who has a desire to succeed online!


The training is very comprehensive.  There are two routes you can take separately or together at the same time.  You can take the Online Entrepreneur Certification course for your chosen niche:


Each of these Levels consists of 10 very comprehensive lessons.  It takes you from the beginning and leads you to have a fully operational specific niche website up and running for your business at the end of Level 5.


You can go through the very comprehensive Affiliate Bootcamp training:


The Affiliate Bootcamp takes you through the process to create a specific website to promote Wealthy Affiliate as an Affiliate marketer.  The training is world class and done very professionally. Your website will be world class and the knowledge you learn doesn’t stop after Phase 7!


  • Searching for Help – Search through the 10,000’s of discussions and training modules available to you as a Starter member.  At the top of every page, there is a “search bar” and you can use that (enter a search term) and find everything from training videos and resources to users within the system.
  • Asking for Help –  As a Starter member, you have access to Premium communication within the first 7 days at WA.  This means you can get help whenever you need it, 24/7/365 from 100,000’s of fellow members inside of WA…including MANY experts that are doing this full time!
  • Networking with Others – WA is the largest community in the world of aspiring and very successful Internet entrepreneurs.  It is a platform that encourages engaging with new people, making connections, networking and creating new friendships.As you immerse yourself in the community and communicate with others, you are going to build an awesome support group that you will be able to work with to further your success online.
  • Asking Kyle & Carson.  Yes, they are REAL.  Yes, they are AVAILABLE. Yes, they 100% care about you!  If you ever need help from them personally, you can contact them via their profiles (Username: Kyle, Username: Carson)  or you can ask a question within the community or within Live Chat and they are very likely to see it and offer you their help).  They are very available and I want you to remember this. 🙂

    Building the first successful business is always the hardest, once I built my first sucessfull business that earns over 6 figures a year as a college student at 19, I decided it is my goal to become an online entrepreneur. I host earnrecurringrevenuefromhome .com on WA, I can say that the training is priceless on WA to build a sucessfull affiliate business. Success with affiliate marketing takes time, and people must realize that success isn’t created overnight. WA makes it easier than ever to create a free online business that earns recurring commissions from home on autopilot. Very helpful broken up content written in a way in which everyone can understand. Great review. Cheers!

      Hello Cesario

I went on your website to look at what you have put together and I am very impressed at the reviews and the steps you put in order for a person starting out to make good thought out decisions. Thanks again for relighting that fire in me to focus on my IM venue!! Thanks and Best Success Cesario!!

    Well your experience seems really good so far – everything seems to be going smoothly and I myself are interested in signing up.
    So most of this education and system is available free of charge right?
    Once I’m in I have unlimited time to try out their teachings and tools?

    1. admin

      Hi Chris, yes you will have one week to try out all the tools and to keep two websites up and running for free. It should give you enough time to experience all the great tools and to test out all of the functions that are available for IM seekers. I really recommend creating your account and taking it for a test run! You will be very impressed and will enjoy the great support from a wonderful community of experts.

    Hey there! I really love you review about wealthy affiliate. I’m a college student and I’m searching for a part time job online. I read good stuff about wealthy affiliate but I don’t have a lot of knowledge prior to it. Also I only have limited money to spend but I have plenty of spare time to invest. Do you think that I can handle this kind of job? Thank you for your response.

    1. admin

      Hi John! Thank you kindly for the great comment! Wealthy Affiliate gives you a great opportunity to try their goods for free without a credit card or any type of collateral. I recommend using this test run to see if you would thrive in this area for a part time job online. As you stated that you don’t have a lot of knowledge, but with Wealthy Affiliate they give you a great trial run with all access to their incredible platform of unique and excellent training modules, live online seminars, not to mention the incredible support from the members of this great society who all pay it forward to see their fellow colleagues succeed. If you have plenty of time to invest I strongly recommend that you try this and see how it feels. Just like looking at a beautiful car you desire and wonder how it would feel without ever taking it for a test drive. Take the test drive John!!
