What is Wealthy Affiliate?

Wealthy Affiliate (WA) is an online business education platform that provides comprehensive step-by-step-training in building your online long-term successful business from scratch.

At WA you will learn to choose an interest, build your own WordPress Website, write content, get rankings, attract an audience and earn revenue. You will learn Online Marketing Skills, especially Affiliate Marketing Skills, and when you learn those skills, you will be able to apply them to anything you want.

Besides the education, you will get the tools, support, the websites, hosting, an opportunity to network with experts in the field and opportunity for earning money from the very first day.

And just to be clear, this is not a get-rich-quick scheme. You will get everything you need to start your online business, but the results are down to you. Your desire, effort, and consistency will determine how far you will go.

Affiliate Marketing – What is it?

Now, when you have learned how to create a website, choose a niche, write content and promote your website, it’s time to make some money, right?

As Affiliate Marketer, you earn a commission by promoting other people or other company’s products. So, you find a product that you like and believe could benefit your readers, recommend it on your website and earn a commission from the company for each product that is purchased Affiliate-Marketingthrough your affiliate link.

There are tons of great products out there and you will learn how to find products for any niche you want. Many companies use this model because it is very cost effective for them. The only cost they incur is the commission. Affiliates are not their employees so there’s no salary or advertising budget required.

The Most Important Thing to Keep in Mind

Affiliate Marketing is a business of helping. It is not business of selling. As a blogger, you have to focus on how you can help your readers rather than how to sell them products and earn a commission. You have to earn a trust from your readers. That’s why it is so important to choose a niche you are passionate about and products that you believe could help your readers.

WA Educational Program

WA has two main programs:

*Online Entrepreneur Certification Training (50 lessons) – series of courses walking you through the process of creating and growing a business within any niche that you want

*Affiliate Bootcamp (70 lessons) – series of courses walking you through the process of creating and establishing a business in a niche related to the promotion of WA

There’s comment section under each class so if you have any questions, you can check out other people’s questions and the answers or you can leave a comment and will get a quick response from the community.

You will also have access 24/7 to:

*Weekly Live Interactive Classes

*Video and Text-Based Tutorials – 1000+

*12 Classrooms – training for Authoring and Writing Content, SEO, WordPress, Website Development and Programming, Email Marketing, Keyword and Niche Research, Pay-per-click Marketing, Video Marketing, Local Marketing and so on.

It is important to emphasize that training is comprehensive and regularly updated. Every day experts deliver new training to the community. When you go premium, you will have access to all the training and everything you need to know about Affiliate Marketing. There is no upselling to higher levels.

WA Affiliate Program

Wealthy Affiliate has its own affiliate program, so you will have an opportunity to earn money from the first day you join WA. Whether you are a FREE member or Premium member, you can earn a commission by referring people to WA.

As a premium member, when you refer someone to WA and a person sign up as a premium member, you earn $8 commission for the first month ($19 special offer) and then $23.50 monthly or $175 yearly as long as your referral remains a premium member.

Las-VegasAs a FREE (starter) member, you earn half of the premium commissions when you refer someone to WA and that person signs up as a premium member.

When you get 300 new premium members within the year, you get FREE all-inclusive private trip to Las Vegas with the founders and other super affiliates. Everything is included from the flight, accommodation, food, drinks, entertainment, and even extra money that you can spend on gambling 🙂

Membership options

There are two membership options:

There is no additional upgrading. If you set up your FREE account and then decide to go premium within 7 days, you will have to pay just $19 for the first month of your premium membership.

Here is what you get with each type of membership:

Wealthy-Affiliate-Membership

I recommend you join WA for FREE and do some due diligence before you go premium. Once you experience all that WA has to offer, I’m pretty sure you’ll go premium, because as a premium member you’ll have a lot of benefits. That’s what I did and was never looked back.

Websites

Your website is the foundation of your online business. WA provides you with WordPress websites, and one of the most advanced hosting platforms online – SiteRubix.

As a FREE member, you will get 2 FREE websites as SiteRubix subdomains (e.g. name.siterubix.com). Premium members can host up to 50 websites – 25 websites as SiteRubix subdomains and 25 your own domains (e.g. .com, .org, .net). You can purchase your own domain through WA for $13.99 per year.

As a FREE member, you can choose from the selection of 12 WordPress themes and as a premium member, you can choose from over 3000 WordPress themes.

Your WA Blog

Besides the websites, you will get your own personal blog within the WA platform. WA blogs are highly ranked on search engines (Google, Bing, Yahoo) and if someone joins WA through your blog, you’ll get credit for it.

Your Own Training

After 3 months of being a premium member, you can create your own training. By giving back to the community, you will receive payment and it can be a way to subsidize your membership costs.

Site Content

Here you can write your content and the best part of it is the built-in image library of over 1,000,000 free to use images from a number of sources around the internet.

Jaaxy Keyword and Niche Research Tool

Jaaxy

 

Jaaxy helps you to rank higher on the search engines. It would normally cost you extra from a different source, but is now fully integrated with WA and you can use its Lite version for FREE.

YES! Here you can check out some WA success stories.

Can You Do It?

YES! Anyone can do it! You don’t need prior experience, tech knowledge or a product. I started without any tech knowledge or experience, and as you can see, my website is up and running, and every day I’m learning and getting better.

As you work throughout the lessons and take action, you will build your skills and your own business. Even though you are a beginner, once you learn and apply the skills, you can become just as successful as anyone else can, as long as you put some effort into it.

Will You Get Help?

YES! WA Community consists of around 1,000,000 people worldwide, networking and helping one another. When you need a help with anything, you get it almost instantly.

  1. Your website has loads of information and is very interesting. I am definitely interested in this program and will look into it!

    1. Shay, that’s fantastic! Sign up for free and try it for yourself. There’s absolutely no risk at all and you can get so much from it. If you have any questions feel free to ask and I’ll be more than happy to help you out. All the best!

  2. I really like the breakdown of what you get with the Wealthy Affiliate programme and the differences between the premium & free versions. There are so many super beneficial parts about the WA programme, including the community, keyword search, ability to earn through their own affiliate programme… I think you’ve covered them all very clearly!

  3. This is a very well set out and complete run down of Wealthy Affiliate and what to expect. I like that you have pointed out that it is not a scam. Also that although you can make money from the beginning it really depends on getting a sign up.

  4. Hi Blanka, I too am a part of Wealthy Affiliate. I hadn’t heard of them when I joined, and I’ve had a great experience from day 1 with them. I started on the free membership then went premium very shortly after because of the quality of the training. I was (and still am) so impressed with the training. I went from knowing zero to now knowing so much about creating websites and affiliate marketing. I absolutely love it there.
    The only thing I would perhaps disagree with you on is your rating of 8/10 for their technical support. I’ve had a few issues here and there, and whenever I’ve logged a request for support the team have either responded or fixed my issue in under 15 minutes. They must work around the clock because I’m in Australia and I was surprised at the response time. I would be rating them higher than 8 – they have saved me a few times!!
    I can’t recommend WA enough.

    1. Hi Melissa,

      Thanks for your comment. I’m glad that you had such a great experience with technical support. Maybe I just set my standards too high 🙂

  5. Very informative, thorough and honest review of Wealthy Affiliate. You’ve done a very good job in nicely compiling all the information. WA indeed is a great platform for anyone looking to work online. Thank you for sharing the information.

  6. Hi Blanka 🙂 Wonderful review of Wealthy Affiliate! You covered everything! This is the most awesome opportunity for anyone wanting to be successful with affiliate marketing. They offer every tool you need to build your online business. From choosing your niche, to building your website, getting traffic and creating income. The training is the best and they provide you with the best keyword tool ever! Join for free and build your online business now!
    Nice review of a top notch company 🙂

  7. Hi Blanka,

    Thanks for leaving this review!!

    I really like the table comparing the options between the free and paid membership and your breakdown at the start.

    I also use WA and have done so for around 2 months now, I think it’s great!

    A couple of questions:
    By creating training after 3 months of being a member, how much can you get paid?
    Have you tried the technical support? I’m not really sure when to use it…

    Thanks again

    Mike

    1. Hi Mike,

      Thanks for your questions. You can earn a maximum of $75 per training. There are different credit levels depending on how successful your resource is (views, likes, comments), with the initial credit level paying out 10 credits ($5). Every training has 5 levels. Together, when you have completed all levels you have been paid $75.

      You can contact technical support whenever you have technical issues with your website, they usually respond within a few minutes. If you have any other questions you can use live chat or ask a question and get answers from the community or communicate through private message with any member. Hope this answers your questions. Cheers!
