What is Wealthy Affiliate about – Affiliate marketing and how to make money with reviews

(Last Updated On: July 30, 2018)

So you’re looking for answers and before you start reading; what is Wealthy Affiliate about, affiliate marketing and how to make money with reviews, I’m going to explain a few things first, so sit back, relax and hopefully you will enjoy.What is Wealthy Affiliate About

Wealthy Affiliate was founded in 2005 by a couple of Canadians Kyle and Carson, who are extremely active amongst the community. Do you need clarification on anything? Just private message them and they will get back to you. Something you very rarely see in like-minded training platforms.

Since it’s launch, has seen well over 1,200,000 members across 195 countries (almost every country on the planet), which makes it one of the most successful training platforms you can find on the Internet today.

In 2017 alone saw over 217,000 members, entrepreneurs start their very first online business.

Wealthy Affiliate teaches affiliate marketing to members with various levels of experience, from experienced entrepreneurs, business owners who already have websites but need clarification and guidance, through to newbies with absolutely no idea of what affiliate marketing is and how it works, just like I was.

If you fall into one of the 3 categories then for sure this could be what you are looking for.

Keep it simple… There are only 2 membership options. Free and Premium membership and the best thing about this is there are no upsells and you will not be asked for a CREDIT CARD when you join as a FREE member. What you see is what you get!

With around half the world population who has access to the Internet, which is nearing the 4 billion mark.

These people are looking for solutions to a particular problem or their next purchase.

  • “how to plumb in a toilet”
  • “best smart tv below $1000”
  • “best restaurant in London”
  • “men’s running clothing”
  • “wireless tv speakers”

These are all keyword phrases that people are keying into search engines.

Can you guess where those people tend to go for their advice?

Yes, you guessed it, they go to one of several main search engines like Google, Bing and Yahoo, and with Google taking approximately 67% of the search engine business then most tend to use Google.

Some interesting facts here!

If you take Google alone, there are over 68,000 searches every single second, which amount to around 6 billion searches every single day. That’s a hell of a lot of people searching for things, right?

These are people looking for solutions to problems and reviewing products they are looking to buy.

As an affiliate marketer, that is your potential crowd of people who you are looking to help! Not sell but give solutions to a particular problem!

With affiliate marketing alone heading to nearly a 12 billion dollar industry, then I’m sure you will agree that affiliate marketing would be a great way to earn a lucrative living from?

I mean people are already looking for things, all you have to do is get your website in front of them!

Affiliate Marketing and how to make money with reviews.

Affiliate marketing happens due to the agreement through Merchants and Retailers, allowing affiliate marketers to promote and sell their products for “in most cases” a tidy commission, through their “Affiliate Programs”

This is great for the merchant or retailer as whilst they would lose a small profit on the sale of the product due to paying out a commission on the sale, they would save money on their marketing campaigns, as this would all be down to the affiliate marketer.

A win-win situation for both!

Is Google where it all happens?

Is Google where it all happens

The very next time you are keying a search term into the Google search box and looking for something, maybe a product that you are looking to purchase, or maybe you are looking for a solution to a problem.

This is what we call research and we all do it every single day of our lives, whether it is through the internet searching in Google or in our everyday lives. We are always looking for solutions to a particular problem or our next purchase.

For example, it could be a “wireless tv speaker” for the new tv that you recently purchased and your decision on whether to purchase that wireless speaker will be based on a number of factors.

So OK, let’s take “wireless tv speaker” and expand it a little with the type of things we look for to decide whether to purchase or not.

A few things maybe…

  • Brand -To match the new tv that we recently purchased.
  • Cost – We could be on a budget.
  • Size – We want the speaker to not look out of place with the tv.
  • Functionality – Does it come with some great features
  • Reliability – Check previous purchases reviews.
  • Colour – To blend in with our TV and surroundings
  • Wattage output – The bigger the better.

All the kind of things that I know I would be looking at if I was to purchase a “wireless tv speaker” and possibly a few more additional factors besides.

As part of your research for this wireless tv speaker, you will be looking at several websites and reading reviews related to the product so you can make a decision on which speaker to buy.

These would all be reviews related to our product “wireless tv speaker” just like you are doing now on my website reviewing, “what is wealthy affiliate about” You are looking for a solution to a particular issue!

Whilst reading the reviews at some point you make a decision and you click on the product to buy and a few days later the product arrives, you install it and you are over the moon!

This speaker is the best thing you’d ever bought and sounded great! Whatever are the neighbours going to think?

Anyway without you knowing you probably bought the product from a website that belonged to an affiliate marketer, who when you made the purchase made a commission from the Merchant/Retailer. Right?

In a nutshell, that is what affiliate marketing is and what Wealthy Affiliate teaches you to do!

The cool thing regarding this business model is…
  • You have no control of order management as this is all done for you.
  • You hold no stock whatsoever and therefore there are no overheads.
  • You don’t have to ship the product as this is also done for you.

… and the beauty about this business is that you can run it anywhere you want! All that is required is a laptop and an internet connection. Travel the world, see the sites, spend precious time with the family. Your time is your time!

All you are doing is promoting other Merchant/retailers products. The affiliate marketer is the go-between!

  • Customer
  • Affiliate Marketer
  • Merchant/Retailer
You know your product now find an affiliate program!

Pretty much any product you can think of, there will be an affiliate program that you can join.

There are literally thousands of affiliate programs that are free to join, which allow you to use their products on your website with their affiliate links, and once a person clicks on that link and buys, you make a commission.

Just to name a few…

The list above is what’s called Affiliate Networks, which are sites that hold many products across many niches.

You don’t have to look far to find products where the merchant is giving away as much as 75% in commissions, especially on Clickbank.

If we take our example, “wireless tv speakers” then we might decide to join the Amazon Associates affiliate program because that is where we can find many different versions of our “wireless tv speakers” to use to promote on our website, although we could use one of many other affiliate programs.

Let’s Check out Amazon

Amazon is the largest e-commerce store there is and they have a very good affiliate program that you can join for free.

When you promote products from Amazon and the customer clicks on your affiliate link, you will make a commission for anything that customer purchases for the next 24 hours, providing they don’t exit your affiliate link.

TV, Toaster, Kettle, Clothing and so on

Just think about it!

The customer came to your website looking for advice on wireless tv speakers and whilst they are on Amazon through your affiliate link, they decide to purchase other products and for each product, the affiliate (You) will get a commission. How cool is that?

Amazon is just 1 example, but if you wanted to check out other affiliate programs then you can do this simply by keying

wireless tv speakers + affiliate programs into Google

Searching in Google for affiliate programs

If you couldn’t find a suitable affiliate program then just vary your search criteria.

Try – wireless speakers + affiliate programs instead

Just by removing the “tv” portion of your search query will display a whole new bunch of affiliate programs that you could use.


4 simple steps to building an online business

OK, so let’s get down to the “nitty gritty” of what it takes to build an online business. This isn’t rocket science and this isn’t unique to Wealthy Affiliate either!

There is no “secret” to this and broken down makes it seem so simple.

The reason why a lot of people fail in many things is that they tend to look at something in its entirety, and they feel overwhelmed and building an online business is no different.

When you break a process down into individual steps it makes things so much clearer.


Just think about it. A dream of yours could be to build your very own house, but you aren’t a builder and don’t have that knowledge, right?

Many would just walk away and not even consider it, but some will look at this not just as a challenge, although it is, but because they might say “just how difficult can it be? I’m doing this anyway!”

They won’t look at the whole picture they will break it down into sizeable chunks. Plan, Excavation, Foundations, blockwork, brickwork etc.

I know this because an uncle of mine who has sadly passed did just this and the only knowledge he had was as a glazier.


I’m not saying that it makes building an online business easy because it doesn’t, but at least it will give you a chance to at least think more about everything, before making a snap decision to call it a day.

Building an online business is not easy because if it was then everybody would be doing it, but done in the right way, with all the tools and expertise then this is achievable for anyone and the Wealthy Affiliate training platform provides all this and more and sets you up for success. No excuses, only you can fail!


Step 1 – What are you passionate about? It all starts with a Niche!

A niche is where it starts. What are you passionate about?

What are you passionate about? Do you have an interest or maybe a hobby?

This is what we call a Niche! What you want your business (website) to be about?

Been familiar and knowledgeable about a Niche makes it more enjoyable and much easier when it comes to creating content for your website, and the training at Wealthy Affiliate explain in thorough detail, and guide you through the whole process.

You need to decide on a Niche and one that will be profitable and like the example, we mentioned earlier.

Our Niche, in this case, would be about “wireless tv speakers” but if you need some guidance then why not take a look at an article I wrote regarding niches, how to find one and how to find a profitable one, but don’t worry too much about this because Wealthy Affiliate will teach you all there is to know.

It could literally be anything. Remember what I said earlier about people searching on Google and that nearly 6 billion searches are done in 1 day alone?

Those searches that people are keying into Google have the potential to become a niche.


Step 2 – Your website, creating your little piece of the Internet.Start building your business by creating a website first

Creating a website is the next step in the process.

This is what gives you an identity in the online world. Your own little piece of the Internet where everything resides.

Worried about creating a website?

Don’t’ be, as building a website at Wealthy Affiliate is a pure joy.

Maybe a few years back this task required programming skills but not now due to the website management platform which is unique to WA, which is SiteRubix.

Take a look and watch one being built in less than 1 minute.


Step 3 – Finding that healthy crowd: Getting your Website reviews (blog posts) out to the masses, known as Traffic!

Get your website in front of the crowd

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here the term traffic refers to the people searching on Google or any search engine for that matter!

It goes without saying that if you can’t attract people to your website then you won’t make any sales!

The search terms that people are keying into Google are stored in a database which allows us as the affiliate marketer to research.

This is called Keyword Research!

At Wealthy Affiliate, they have such a tool, which is called Jaaxy. As of December 2017, Jaaxy is fully integrated and comes as part of the premium membership, whereas before you had to pay for it.

So what are we trying to achieve?

We are looking for what people are searching for that relates to our Niche, which in this case is “wireless tv speakers

Ideally, we are looking for “keywords” which relate to our niche and to determine whether we can use these keywords we need to take 3 things into consideration which you will notice on the Jaaxy image below.

Let me explain

AvgIs the average amount that a specific keyword phrase will be keyed into Google over a monthly period.

TrafficIs the amount of traffic that we could attract if we manage to get our website post on the 1st page of Google.

QSRThis is where that exact keyword phrase in our example “wireless tv speakers” can be found on a number of websites. The lower that figure the better. Look for a figure below 100 and less than 50 is even better!

Take a look at the search results straight from Jaaxy

Keyword ideas from Jaaxy

In the above example, we keyed in our search phrase “wireless tv speakers” and the results brought back are what people in Google are searching for that relate to our Niche.

We can see that “wireless tv speakers” has

  • Avg = 1182 (average number of monthly searches)
  • Traffic = 201 (the amount of traffic available to us if we hit page 1 of Google
  • QSR = 100 (number of websites with that exact phrase)

Taking all that into consideration and we have a good keyword that we can use for the title of our next “blog post” relating to our niche. It just so happens to be the same as our Niche!

We could also use the following 4 keywords which are all related.

  1. “best wireless tv speakers”
  2. “wireless tv speakers review”
  3. “wireless tv speaker system”
  4. “bose wireless tv speaker system”

Those 5 keywords we could use as our next “blog post” titles and write our content around. Every post grabs a certain amount of traffic and the more “blog posts” you publish the more traffic, which ultimately means more sales. Got it?

At Wealthy Affiliate, they teach all this and more and the game changer here is that the Traffic (You know, the 5+ billion) we can access for FREE. Not paid but FREE traffic!


Step 4 – All your hard work has paid off!

It is now time to see results from all our hard work

Once you have traffic coming to your website then it is time to make commissions.

These commissions will come from the Merchants and Retailers who’s affiliate programs you joined and are using.

When this happens this is when you know that all your hard work has paid off!


Wealthy Affiliate Free vs Premium membership!

Wealthy affiliate membership comparisonsAs you can see from the above chart, there are only 2 memberships, Free and Premium.

I would always suggest joining as a free member, this way you can take it for a test drive and see what all the fuss is about. That’s exactly what I did and others besides.

When you join as a free member you will not be asked for your credit card details which were a massive plus for me, and you won’t find any upsells at all, not like most products out there.

Aren’t you a little tired of these sales tactics? I know I am!

If after you join as a free member and like what you see, if you upgraded to premium within 7 days then you get the first month for $19. That’s a saving of 39%.

Upgrading to premium allows you to thoroughly check out the training platform over a 4-5 week period (like I did) and if this is not for you then call it a day and all it will have cost you is $19.

You really need to upgrade and take advantage of this as this opens up everything within the training platform.

A note I would like to point out is that if you joined and upgraded to premium and decided to pay for the yearly membership upfront, this would bring down your costs as follows.

From $588 to  $348

That’s a saving of around 39%

That’s $1 a day, yes you heard that right. $1 for all that training, with no hidden costs, no upsells, no garbage promises and to top that; well you can’t because there is nothing that comes close to this training on the  Internet today!


Who could benefit from this training?

Maybe you’ve been stung a few times in the past, misinformed and lost money?

A complete newbie just starting out on your journey and trying to figure it all out?

Could be a business owner looking to improve revenue by building a website and creating an Internet presence?

Are you a stay at home mum or dad looking to project your finances?

You, could be due for retirement and looking to top up your pension?

Looking to add to your current income?

Could it be that you are looking for an alternative career?

Would love to spend more time with your loved ones, so lets fire the boss eh?

Love travelling, then all you would need is a laptop and an Internet connection?

Just to name a few, but the training at Wealthy Affiliate is literally for anyone.


 What is Wealthy Affiliate about? The Verdict!

Hopefully, I have achieved what I set out to do and give you an in-depth review of this training platform without going into too much detail.

I’m sure you’ll agree that affiliate marketing would be a great business to get involved with and that the possibilities are endless.

Remember what I said about over 5 billion searches a day on Google alone?

You only need a fraction of that crowd of people to make a very lucrative online business. Eventually, a passive business that will generate income for you 24/7/365.

Do you really get all this for this ridiculous small monthly amount?

State of art training platform, that is continually been updated and improved.

Education is simple and it works, with video, text and tasks to complete. For newbies and advanced marketers alike.

52 live weekly training classes a year

A vast catalogue of training created by experienced entrepreneurs you will find all over the community.

The support you get goes beyond anything I have come across.

Create beautiful, professional looking websites in seconds, using Wealthy Affiliate’s own management platform SiteRubix, full of techie stuff to take your business to the next level.

Host all your websites on wealthy affiliate

Manage all your domains in one place

A fully secure 1-Stop-Shop for all your business and the only requirement to step outside is to do your research.

Just think – We all do research whenever we are on the Internet. We all write content, that’s what you are doing on social media and we all write emails. OK?

Those are the elements that are required to start an online business so what are you waiting for?

Why not take it for a test drive and see what you think. Remember I will be there for you every step of the way.

You can start your free membership here!

Hope to see you on the inside!

  1. Thank you very much for such a thorough review. I definitely have a better understanding as to how affiliate marketing works as well as what it takes to become an affiliate marketer.

    The reason so many of us fail is that we don’t understand the process of it all.

    We tend to think it is easy because the work is done online (I know I did).

    Another reason I was put off by it was due to the fact I would end up in programs that were filled with upsells, no real training and no money.

    Thank you for showing us what it is really about.

    1. Hey Lee Ann,

      Thanks for stopping by and I’m glad I could clarify a few things, not just about affiliate marketing but also this training platform I am part of.

      I came across wealthy affiliate quite by chance and nearly didn’t join because how could this training give you so much for so very little. Whilst the internet has an abundance of great information, there is also a lot of negative stuff too, and like yourself, I too have had my fair share of programs with misleading information, followed by up-sell after up-sell. Unfortunately, we can’t get away from it.

      Thanks for stopping by, it’s very much appreciated.

  2. Thank you for your clear description of Wealthy Affiliate program, it really helps when it´s explained so well, and the example of the T.V. is brilliant, who doesn´t have a T.V. nowdays, it´s something everybody can relate too.

  3. Wow! When you start talking the numbers it’s really impressive what’s going on here. Almost 4 Billion people on the internet searching for things is pretty amazing.

    Also, that this online affiliate marketing training company had 217,000 people join in 2017 and create websites speaks volumes. They (Wealthy Affiliates) must have some great training in order to have that many people join up.

    I’m going to check them out!

    1. Thanks, Susan for taking time out and commenting. The training at Wealthy Affiliate goes beyond anything I have seen on the Internet. With well over a decade and helping over 1,200,000 members start their first online business, I think the figures speak for themselves.

      Take care

  4. This is one of the nicest Wealthy Affiliate Reviews I have seen. I love that you put so much information in it. I especially like the way you leaded up to the Free Versus Premium. I just loved your site period!

    1. Hey Eden, thank you so much for the kind comments and I’m glad I managed to convey the message across in a way that was easy to understand.

      This is very much appreciated

  5. Thanks for the very informative review of Wealthy Affiliate.

    I like how you broke it down with examples and made it seem so simple and straightforward to understand.

    I have heard good things about Wealthy Affiliate and looks like a great investment and something that I will be looking more into in the near future.

  6. Hello Mick.

    That is a profound walk in the world of affiliate marketing.

    There are a lot of programs out there that are confusing and not clear in their approach. You just explained the affiliate marketing in a clear and structured way that it is so easy to understand.

    The Wealthy Affiliate Program sounds good and a Program worth to join. Alone the fact that we can connect now with the people all over the world is amazing, but with Affiliate Marketing we can create a business and sell it worldwide.

    Starting an affiliate business opens so many doors we can sell our products online, without the need for stock and space for storing all of the products. I like the example of the keywords with the TV that is something I can easily relate to it.

    Affiliate Marketing is something everyone can do.

    Thanks for this great and informative post affiliate marketing is open to everyone… I enjoyed reading it.

    Sylvia

    1. Hey Sylvia, Thank you for stopping by, not only reading the review but also taking the time out and commenting. 

      Affiliate marketing, I’m sure you’ll agree is a great business model, but finding the right training can be a nightmare as there are so many out there to choose from. 

      I’m glad you enjoyed it and that it was explained in a way that you could understand, but also for the great comments you made.

      This is much appreciated.

  7. For me personally wealthy affiliate is the gateway to financial freedom, no more mindless and boring job with low wage, arrogant coworkers and terrible atmosphere. My only regret is that i started this way too late, because i was very skeptical about affiliate marketing. Thanks for the informative article, it was interesting.

    1. hey Rich, it’s never too late to start anything!

      I hear you when you say that you were sceptical about affiliate marketing, but when you can find a training platform like Wealthy Affiliate then it makes everything so much easier.

      Thanks for your comments

  8. Thank you for such a thorough explanation about affiliate marketing with simple examples of niches and keywords so novice marketers could follow. There are many affiliate marketing training/platforms available online, and when we search for it, massive results would bombard us!

    I agree, Wealthy Affiliate is one of the most trusted products, and I can testify that as I have tried many others in vain. What I like Wealthy Affiliate the most is the great community that includes on-going support. You will never feel left alone, nor feel competition. We all work together, share their knowledge and experience, and encourage each other. It is indeed one of the kind!

    1. Hey, Kyoko, I’m glad I could get the message across. When trying to explain anything we tend to adopt a view, an assumption that people know at least something about the subject.

      Thank you for your comments.

  9. Hi Mick!
    That is so far the most detailed Review of any topic I have read so far.
    I like your entertaining articles. It seems so, as you already have developed your style 😉

    For me, but this is my feeling, and for sure other customers are different, there is a bit too much info presented.
    I would prefer to have the article more compact.
    But, as already mentioned, that is my opinion and might be different for others.

    Once I am through your explanation, I know anything I need to know about Wealthy Affiliate. Thank you so much for that and for the efforts you have put into that masterpiece.

    All the best
    Johann

    1. Hey Johann, I’m glad you enjoyed and that I managed to get the message across. 

      I believe there is a fine line when it comes to producing a review especially when the subject is about something that you are so passionate about. Just what do you include and what do you leave out? With this review I tried to make it different to many others and tailored it for the newbie in mind.

      Thanks for the great comments, this is very much appreciated.

    1. Hey Andy, obviously I am going to be biased, but since finding Wealthy Affiliate I have learnt more in a few months than I have done scouring the Internet looking for answers. There is so much outdated information that it is hard to know just who to believe, and since I have tried many alternatives solutions, the main thing missing was support, but more importantly, I found out that the one person who matters most, the member was left to their own resources and just forgotten about.

      There is absolutely nothing like this training platform on the Internet and I would trust 100%. When I joined as a free member (like everyone does) I was so overwhelmed by everything I just kept thinking what is the catch?

      All the training should cost tens of thousands, but it doesn’t. For $49 a month or $29 a month if you pay for the yearly subscription, that’s everything for $1 a day. An absolute no-brainer if you ask me!

      I guess another satisfied customer, but then again I haven’t come across anybody who wasn’t or any negative response.

      Thanks for the great comments, much appreciated.

  10. Hi Mick,

    What a compelling overview of Wealthy Affiliate. I really appreciated the approach that you had right at the outset which makes the reader realize that you know where they are at. You immediately captured my attention and I wanted to know more which is exactly what you wanted. I hope people who read this take you up on your offer to join Wealthy Affiliate because, at the expense of sounding redundant, it is a superb platform to learn everything there is to know about affiliate marketing.

    All the best,

    Brian

    1. Hey Brian, I’m sure you’ll agree that in order to become successful at something you need to be around successful people, and Wealthy Affiliate has this in abundance. The fact that Wealthy Affiliate has been active for well over a decade with over 1,200,000 members coming through, just shows how much a success this training platform really is, and to cap it all off, the costs are ridiculously low. 2 memberships only, free and paid with no upsells whatsoever. Where can you get anything like this on the Internet today? You simply can’t!

      Thanks for the great comments, much appreciated

  11. Wow, this is an amazing review. It really highlights everything that Wealthy Affiliate is about and all that it has to offer. I actually found Wealthy Affiliate at a very pivotal moment in my life. I was running out of money and I was losing faith in the whole “make money online” phenom.

    So when I got to Wealthy Affiliate I thought it was just another scam waiting to happen, but it didn’t. I was actually learning something and taking action on the things that I had learned. By following the training I was able to start my own online business in short of a year.

    Thanks for reviewing this, it really reminds me why I chose to stay.

    1. Hi Emonne, it looks like our experiences in the make money online niche is pretty similar. I too wasted a number of years picking up things here and there with a lot of misinformation thrown in, and quite by accident nearing the end of my patience found this training platform and the best thing I ever did. So glad you have found your calling too. Thanks for the great comment, much appreciated.

  12. Hi Mick,

    I am currently using the business model you speak of. I started over a year ago and can’t believe how much free traffic my website is receiving. The training at Wealthy Affiliate really is top tier and affordable to all.

    Those wishing to work from home can do so right here. You only need a laptop and internet connection. It is a long term goal so expect to work at it for at least 6 months to a year to see consistent results in earnings.

    I love that it is free to sign up and no pressure to upgrade. Your free account is free for life. You even get to earn commissions from their affiliate program as a Free Member.

    They have made it easier than ever to earn online, so if you want to be making your own full time income, sign up and see if it is for you.

    Thanks Mick for your amazing review to answer what is Wealthy Affiliate about as I ASKED the same question some time ago.

    – Phiilp.

    1. Hey Philip, that’s great that you have already made that step into what must be one, if not the best online training platform currently out there. For $1 a day there is nothing that comes close and the training speaks for itself. This is not a quick fix and it won’t happen overnight like most so-called gurus promise, but great businesses take time to flourish and find “free” traffic that will save you thousands in the long run, and there is absolutely no BS either. My only gripe is that I wish I had found them a few years back when I started my journey trying to find out how to make money online. Thanks for stopping by and your support and I’ll speak to you on the inside.

  13. Thanks for this super informative review! As a member of Wealthy Affiliate I can verify that everything you’ve said is correct; there really is no better place to get started as an entrepreneur out there!

    When I first joined, the sheer number of other members on the site seemed overwhelming but it’s important to remember that the more people there are on this platform, the higher the chance of someone being able to answer a question or help you out whenever you need the assistance.

    Just jump in and have a go at the free training, the results should come naturally and from there you are in control of whether or not to go Premium!

    1. Hey Benji, thanks for stopping by and taking an interest. It’s always great to bump into fellow entrepreneurs who are part of probably the best training platform that you can find anywhere. I know, we probably are biased and for good reason as well. Hope everything is doing great for you and thanks for the great comment.

  14. I have been a part of WA for 2 years now and I can now say that this is the best description on exactly what it is all about!
    Anyone that ever has any questions about this program can be rest assured that you can give them the answers.
    Joining this platform has been the best decision I have ever made when it comes down to making money online. Have loved the journey so far and am looking forward to taking things to the next level.

    1. Hey Nathan, it’s great to hear that like myself, you found this great training platform and I can see from your tone that this is working for you too. My only gripe is that I didn’t find Wealthy Affiliate much sooner. Thanks for dropping by and I’m sure we will cross paths at some point. Great to hear that this training is working out for you and all the best to future successes, and thanks for your support and great comment. Much appreciated.

  15. WOW!!! You really went into a lot of detail to explain what Wealthy affiliate is about. I appreciate the fact that you were so honest and open. Not many of these types of online sites bother to tell you all the costs up front. I know, having been conned by one in particular. Thanks for that refreshing insight to what sounds like a fantastic business. All the best Jim

    1. Hey Jim, it took me a very long time to find the right training platform, and it got almost to the point where I was going to give up looking. I lost count of the times that so-called gurus tried to con me and in some cases succeeded, but you eventually get wise to it. You have to be transparent and Wealthy Affiliate makes it so easy to do just that, and besides the costs involved are minuscule in comparison to other like-minded products that don’t come anywhere near. So simple and straightforward. With only 2 memberships… free and premium (and free means free and for life, if that is what you want, with no CREDIT card ever asked for) or premium which is really where you want to be if you are serious and to take full advantage of all the training available. If you pay up front for the year you make a saving of 62.58% which works out @ less than $1 a day, and quite frankly you won’t find any training like it anywhere. If you need any help just give us a shout, oh and thanks for the great comment.

  16. Hello Mick!
    This is a great post – very thorough and detailed. I just started my premium membership a few weeks ago and can attest that WA is really helpful.
    Thanks for the information!

    1. Hey Dominique, that’s great to hear and I wish you all the success in the world. Premium is where you want to be and try and pay up front for the year if you already haven’t done. That way you will save 62.58% and bring the cost down to less than $1 a day. If you need any advice at all, just give me a shout, I will be only too happy to help. Thanks for stopping by and the great comment.

  17. I appreciate you breaking it down and explaining how Wealthy Affiliate works. I love the transparency and the respect given to the reader. No mystery. No guessing on my part. Thanks.

    1. Hey Tina, I’m glad I could help and thanks for stopping by and, of course, the great comment. Just remember, if you need any help whatsoever to just give me a shout? Have a great day!

  18. What an exhaustive post! Everything I need to know about affiliate marketing is in this post. I am now using this platform now. I also tried other programs but I think they are not for newbies. I recommend this platform for newbie like me who wants to learn everything about building an online business.

    1. Hey Dan, so glad you found Wealthy Affiliate and that things are working out for you. I have tried many sites in the past with zero success and like you mentioned, many were just not geared towards the newbie even though you were told they were. I’m sure you are in the right place because everything is there for you to succeed. Just don’t give yourself unrealistic targets like 3-6 months etc. Yes, you may see results but they will be sporadic and besides, you don’t want to be putting too much pressure on achieving your goals. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

  19. I’m with Wealthy Affiliate myself and am totally pleased with it. I’ve learned so much new stuff. Just when you think you know everything there is to know about owning your own website, marketing, etc. you learn something new that totally boosts your results. The community of people there too is amazing. Everyone helps each other and it feels like one big family.

    This is a great and very thorough review of WA. I’m so happy I decided to become a member. It’s my home now and I’ll never look back. 🙂

    1. Hey Wendy, so great to hear that you are part of this amazing training platform. All the best moving forward and thank you for stopping by and commenting. Its much appreciated.

  20. This sounds nice! I’m thinking for a while to start something mine. I’m bored out of my mind with my job and I’d like something new.
    And well, as it’s free and I don’t have to give my credit card info, then I don’t have anything to lose. Hopefully, everything will go great and In some years I’ll read your site from my private island. 😀
    Thanks a lot!

    1. Hey Jenny, I hope the review gave you what you were looking for and if you need any help then don’t hesitate to ask. Thanks for the comment.

  21. An excellent explanation of affiliate marketing. Congratulations! You have let the light shine within the darkest corners of the subject and have suggested a platform from where one can learn and work, building their project(s) from scratch in a formal and orderly way. I think the price that Wealthy Affiliate charges for its membership is extraordinary if you think of the amount of training available and the quantity of sites you can host. 25 own domain sites and 25 on the siterubix domain! And the risk? It doesn’t exist. 7 days of test-driving within such a well constructed platform are more than enough to convince. And if it doesn’t you can just leave or better yet stay with limitations until you decide to take the plunge. All in all, it’s difficult to find something better out there. I know, I’ve done the round.

    Thank you for the great post. Keep up the fantastic work providing people with information to better their lives!

    1. Hey Loannis, so glad you enjoyed the post. I remember when I started trying to work this all out. Watching YouTube videos endlessly, and may be taking to a particular person only to find out the information was either well dated, or incorrect. I had almost got to the day when I was going to call it a day because eventually, you start to not believe anything that anybody tells you, whether right or wrong. I found this amazing training platform quite by chance and even then I was thinking, “what’s the catch?”, this has to be “BS”. Like you say I gave it a try anyway because I had nothing to lose and it was FREE to join. I decided to pay the discounted $19 for the premium membership so that I could check out the entire training platform for 5 weeks and if I didn’t like what I saw I was going to call it a day and all I’d have lost would have been $19. However, it took me only a few hours to decide that this was the place I needed to be. You could bang on all day about how good it is and the amount of training that is on offer, but the only way to actually find out is to try it out for yourself. Thanks for the great comment.
