Wealthy Affiliate in Review – Is WA for You?
Over 4 billion people surf the Internet looking for something of interest. Either to buy, sell, build, teach or learn and this figure is growing so fast.
When I joined Wealthy Affiliate some time ago I was dubious about this platform because I had been stung by scams a couple of times before and did not trust anything that was suggested to me, however after reading a review written by Kevin, I decided to join for free to take a look inside this place and see what it was all about.
In this post, I am going to share my take on Wealthy Affiliate and share the information I have been fortunate to learn, as a member of this platform so let’s get into it so you can see whether it is something you might like to do.
Growing a business takes time and skills plus tools and loads of hard work so if you are the kind of person who enjoys working hard and wants a great future then keep reading.
Who is Wealthy Affiliate?
Founded over 14 years ago by Kyle and Carson, 2 Entrepreneurs from Canada, Wealthy Affiliate is what I would call a Training and Building Platform for people who truly want to learn and grow a Super Successful Affiliate Marketing Business.
Kyle and Carson work tirelessly every day within Wealthy Affiliate to ensure all 1.4 million members receive the best of the best when it comes to training, a state of the art system, security, and all the other essentials that make this platform the best on the Internet.
There are 25 developers behind the scenes and a team of technical experts to help the members out if they get stuck or make an error while building their online businesses.
Within Wealthy Affiliate, there is also a community of people helping out 24/7 with the live chat and also over 1900 Experts within the Community to answer questions to blogs written by the members with efficiency and accuracy to keep the members moving forward and growing their online future.
What do Wealthy Affiliate Offer?
There are 2 Training Programs within the platform and every member goes through these pieces of training step by step following the video training and tutorials to teach them everything needed to create and build their business.
The 1st training program to go through is the OEC which is the Online Entrepreneur Certification and this training consists of around 50 lessons with tasks to complete before moving onto the next lesson
Once you have completed the OEC you will then move onto Bootcamp training which I call the advanced training, giving you more tools to become more known and more successful and by the time you reach BootCamp, you will already have established a solid foundation for your website
Taking your time to go through each lesson of both training programs is vital and essential to your knowledge and growth online and if you follow the steps you are taught without skipping any of the lessons, you will find yourself in a great position moving forward with the growth of your websites.
1st up is choose a niche and this is done by choosing something, you are passionate about or something you have always wanted to learn about so you can teach others.
Here are a couple of niches to give you an idea
As you can see by the 3 images above there are millions of search results relating to these 3 niches. There are many more companies turning to online marketing, so the need for Affiliate Marketers is growing exponentially. There are millions of choices to be made to start your own business online.
Content Writing/Keyword Research
When writing content to help people with their decision making, you need to be thorough, give people honest advice, true facts, and often best of reviews are a great way to help people make their buying decisions.
Before you write content it is important to use the best Keywords. Within Wealthy Affiliate, there is a program you have access to included in your Premium membership.
Jaaxy is rated as the best keyword research program to use and to get indexed and ranked which is what you want to happen you need to learn how to use Keywords
Go take a look at Jaaxy and see how it works. Wealthy Affiliate has Keyword training for premium members as well which is wonderful as it gets you noticed by Google, Bing, and Yahoo. This is so important when it comes to making money and being a successful Affiliate Marketer.
Keyword research is all about choosing the right title for your blog and it works like this:
You choose a high AVG which is the average visitors per month with the keywords
The QSR which is short for “Quoted Search Results” and the number, shown, indicates how many other websites are competing for that particular keyword.
As you can see the best snowboard for beginners has 128 visitor searches per month and the QSR is only 31 so this would be a perfect keyword for a blog title.
Once you have selected a great title now it’s time to write some excellent content to help people and I suggest 1000 words is a great number for a blog however if you haven’t finished writing please keep going until you feel you have shared enough information. Some blogs are well over 2500 words and some over 7000. There is no limit and it is always better to give more information than too little.
Some people write 500 words a lot and think it’s going to get them noticed and sometimes it does but it isn’t a good habit to form. The more good information you share the more trust you will gain with your readers and the more people will revisit your site as they know they are going to receive the best from you and this is how to build a successful online Affiliate Marketing Business.
Within Wealthy Affiliate you can read a lot of blogs and suggestions by members around this subject and 95% of the members all agree that excellent content is one of the Keys to Success Online.

Also, it is really important to write content regularly for your readers, and if you are doing reviews, great as people visit sites to get recommendations and also to save themselves from falling for rubbish online and wasting money.
There are 1000’s of scams online and by writing reviews on products, “So-Called” opportunities that you know very well are not a good value, you are helping people. Please always be honest with your writing as it is so easy to spot someone who is being fraudulent and if you do this, you may as well stop and go do something else with your time as you will eventually go down for being dishonest.
If you don’t know something as a fact then be careful when writing product reviews or business reviews or opportunity reviews. Always research thoroughly and then write your blog for people.
What is Affiliate Marketing
When you have built a solid foundation for your website/business, it is now time to apply to Companies relating to your niche to become an Affiliate, and once again, there are millions of companies wanting Affiliates.
Here is an example of a search for an Affiliate Program relating to a Niche
Here is another one to give you more ideas on the results for Companies offering Affiliate Programs
How does it work
Once you have been accepted to become an Affiliate in your niche, you will then add banners and links to your site and when visitors click on the links you recommend they will be taken directly to the Company’s website and when they buy something, you will receive a commission from the company.
You do not handle products, shipping, or sales. The Company does all that for you. All you have to do is recommend the products or services and have links and banners working on your websites and the income will flow.
You can also join Google Adsense and have ads automatically placed on your site and when visitors click on the ads, you get a % and once it reaches a certain threshold, you get paid out. I think the threshold is $100 so it is well worth looking into.
This image tells you the process
24/7 Support is offered within Wealthy Affiliate for all members. There is the live chat where members help each other out and answer questions for people and this is also a great place to connect with people from all over the world with all sorts of different skill levels and personalities.
Technical support is also available 24/7 and the team behind the scenes is always quick to respond and sort out problems members have regarding their sites. Sometimes when learning mistakes are made and the tech team is always there to help.
Another benefit is having your own Mentor when you join and as a Mentor is is my pleasure helping all my referrals grow and learn.
We have a large community within the platform where members share their successes and their progress and also ask questions and the community is amazing people all out to help each other along on this exciting business journey.
I have been involved with other business opportunities online some of which were ok and some that are not recommended at all and for me, the only one that truly gives anyone who is prepared to learn and work hard a genuine opportunity to become hugely successful is Wealthy Affiliate.
With over 1.4 million members and growing every day this platform offers Premium Members everything to create and build an online future.
To become a Member there are 2 choices and I suggest you take the 1st choice and join for free so you can see what Wealthy Affiliate is for yourself. Go to the live chat, ask questions, push the icons, and see where you go. Do the 1st 10 lessons in the training if you feel this could be for you and if you do, then go premium.
There is a bonus offer to go premium within your 1st 7 days and I took this offer and paid $19 to go Premium and have never regretted one moment and have now got 2 successful businesses online and I love my life and the choices I have now.
Here is what the 2 Memberships offer. Amazingly a lot of companies charge more than we pay monthly just to host websites and this doesn’t include Security but with Wealthy Affiliate, we get it all
Check this out
Here is a hosting comparison and as you will see Wealthy Affiliate really does offer so much to members and this is because Kyle and Carson wanted Wealthy Affiliate to be a pay it forward platform where we all help each other out, fees are low and people can become successful without stretching the limits of spending and you can do this as a part-time business until your income gives you the choice to go full time and no longer work for someone else.
How cool would that be?

Thank you for taking the time to read this review and I hope it has helped you with your decision making regarding building an online business.
Go well and I hope to connect with you inside the platform.
I almost forgot. You are also able to pay yearly for your fees which are discounted heavily for you as an extra bonus.
There are no upsells within the platform. the only extra cost is when you buy your own, dot com domain name for your website and the fee for this is approx $13 per year.
If you already have a domain name somewhere else, you are able to transfer it to WA as part of being a premium member 🙂
