Wealthy Affiliate, Program Overview

There are many kinds of leaders on Earth, and the best of them all are what we call “empowering leaders”. They don’t hoard power to themselves, but rather transfer it to others via teaching. (Transfer of knowledge and skills)

In 2005, Kyle and Carson, created an online community where they can help people succeed online in the same way they experience success. Today, it is now the Internet’s #1 community for affiliate marketing.

(Affiliate marketing is… making money promoting other people’s stuff online)

From learning online business, to hosting websites… and from keyword research to dominating your niche, you can do all these inside Wealthy Affiliate.

And best of all, you can make money bringing people to Wealthy Affiliate.

The Good & the Bad

=> The Good:

As an “all in one” online business platform, you can find almost everything in one roof:

  • Online business education, how to turn your passion into online profits
  • An easy-to-use website builder (I created this site using the site builder)
  • Excellent hosting that makes your site always up and running
  • You can register a domain name for your online business right there inside the platform
  • An excellent technical support that solve problems within minutes, and eager-to-help community (WA founders and members) that’s always there to help when you have problems
  • And plenty of success stories, a proof WA lessons work!

=> The Bad:

There are only few negative things that I have observed. In fact, they are not actually bad, but rather loopholes which can be improved. Among them are:

  • Lessons are specifically geared towards “online business”. If you are a home business entrepreneur interested in craft making or manufacturing, you will find the lessons taught inside WA not directly applicable to the kind of business you’re starting.
  • It’s an open-education, which means, anyone with knowledge about a certain topic, can respond to a question or conversation. Sometimes, you will find this set up confusing with so many people giving conflicting advice.
  • There’s a ranking system that reward members who are actively helping other members. If you are not careful in putting things on the right perspective, social activity inside WA community can get in the way of growing your own online business.

Who is Wealthy Affiliate For?

Lone type of home business entrepreneurLike I said earlier (in “the bad” section), the focus of Wealthy Affiliate is more on helping people own a profitable website or “online business”.

So, if you are an entrepreneur whose interest is not much related to this focus, this is not for you.

A lot of people would love having a profitable website, but not all. There are a few whose interest is more on “traditional type of business”.

Like for example, starting a home-based manufacturing business or home-based cleaning business.

As a home business coach, I honestly want to help people get started correctly. So, if someone is really not in tune to what WA is teaching, I would not insist.

In my opinion, Wealthy Affiliate is for people who is quite a loner and loves staying at home. Anyone interested in starting a home based online business.

Bloggers are a perfect example to this.

Making money sharing your thoughts online.

Wealthy Affiliate Tools & Training

This is one of the areas where WA dominates its competition.

To start a profitable online home business, one has to come up with a good plan. Perhaps, a direction of where the entrepreneur should go. And that’s where the training in WA is helpful.

The training are divided into two parts:

  1. The Online Entrepreneur Getting Started Course – this is a general training created for all the members of Wealthy Affiliate. It teaches everything you need to know about starting an online business. From teaching you basic knowledge of affiliate marketing, to helping you dominate your niche, finishing this course can transform you into a “real online home business entrepreneur”. Click here to browse the curriculum.
  2. The Wealthy Affiliate’s Affiliate Bootcamp – this course is specifically created for WA members wanting to make money referring others to WA. If you search on Google about Wealthy Affiliate, you will notice some WA members are occupying the top spots in the search engine’s results pages. Those are WA Bootcampers, and they dominate the search engines by applying the lessons they learn from the WA Affiliate Bootcamp. Click here to take a peek of what’s inside WA Affiliate Bootcamp.

Now, the tools…

  1. Jaaxy Keyword Tool – it comes with a free trial, and then Lite membership for premium members of WA. Great for doing keyword research, you will learn what EXACTLY your target customers are searching for in the search engines particularly in Google. It can also help you track your site’s search engine ranking performance.
  2. Site Rubix wordpress website builder – you can build your own website in 5 minutes or fewer! In one of my blog post here, I described it as “the best do it yourself website builder”.
  3. Site Content – I can say this is the ultimate writing platform, as it can guide beginners on how to easily write beautiful articles. You can publish an article peppered with related images to your wordpress site without leaving WA platform!
  4. Site Comments – In my social media postings, I honestly admit that oftentimes, I like my own Facebook posts. Why am I doing that? It’s because, the first like is the hardest to get. But once you got a bunch of likes, others would start liking it, too. It’s the same with Site Comments. You can request other WA members to like your blog post, a message to Google that’s your article is actively being read and commented, and is worth ranking high.
  5. Site Feedback – for constructive criticism on your site. Like Site Comments, you can participate and request feedback from other WA members. This helps in seeing what your eyes have missed in your own site.

WA Support

This website that you’re in right now is hosted by Wealthy Affiliate.

In spite of being one of the most powerful hosting platform on Earth—fast loading and and super tight security—we sometimes experience problems, and that’s normal. You can never find a 100% perfect site hosting.

But look at this screenshot. Take note of how prompt WA Site Supported has responded to my problem…

WA Support

And aside from that, we have this “Live Chat” and “post a question” feature inside WA community that’s working very good, you’ll love it!

It’s a kind of “support system” you can never see elsewhere.  Click here to take a peek (live feed) of what’s happening inside WA community.

WA Membership Price

Basically, you can join for free.

Starter members can enjoy a bunch of things, but for full access of all the features, one has to upgrade to premium membership of $49 per month, or $359 per year.

Here’s a good comparison…

If a Starter Member upgrade to premium membership within 7 days after joining, a 59% discount is offered ($19.95 for 1 month). Then on the succeeding months, $49 per month.

Occasionally, WA offers “promo” in membership upgrade discounts. One of them is the Black Friday Sale, where you can upgrade to yearly membership at a huge discount (just pay $299 instead of $359).

Black Friday Sale happens Nov 24th – 27th every year.

Whatever you find comfortable, whether it be free Starter Membership of Premium Monthly or Premium Yearly, feel free to avail. There’s no pressure, no obligation, and you can even join us without typing in your credit card info.

(Put that credit card away and join us!)

You can also remain as a free member for as long as you want.

My Final Opinion of Wealthy Affiliate?


Only few are succeeding!


Wealthy Affiliate is not a scam.It’s the other way around…

This is one of the most legit “all-in-one online business platforms” I’ve ever seen! Helping thousands of Internet entrepreneurs worldwide.

Sure, you can see people post messages online accusing Wealthy Affiliate as scam. Perhaps, few misguided ones. Or, poor understanding of how Wealthy Affiliate works.

Wealthy Affiliate is not a scam.

But, honestly, it is not for everyone. It has helped a lot of people, but it’s not for everyone.

I have friends whom I have invited to Wealthy Affiliate, but did not join. Also, there are people out there looking at us, not joining because, they see building an online business seems like a hard work. They’re looking for an easier route wherein they can just join, invest a few bucks, to wake up wealthy by the next morning doing nothing.

So, it’s not for everyone.

Like I said earlier, even in the circle of home business entrepreneurs, there are those who are better off starting their own home business without joining Wealthy Affiliate.

But for those who like making money promoting other people’s stuff online (affiliate marketing), I highly recommend you join us. Take advantage of the training, the tools, and the lucrative WA’s affiliate program.

Final Thoughts

Will you join Wealthy Affiliate?

If you’re a person who’s not inclined to computers and the Internet (yes, there are people like that, I call them “internots”), this is not for you.

But don’t close your doors completely… Maybe some time in the future, when you’re business boom and you need a website, get your business’ website hosted in WA.

Wealthy Affiliate Review Counting MoneyOn the other hand, if you’re interested in becoming your own boss, working from home online, I can say you better join us here.
