What is Wealthy Affiliate about?
Wealthy Affiliate is an online marketing training program that provides everything you need to build a sustainable online business.
It is necessary that you know that Wealthy Affiliate is not a MLM/Network marketing company, it’s not a get-rich-quick scheme, it’s not paid-to-click, it’s not a place to promote other products/services and it has nothing to do with making money taking surveys.
You may be wondering, “what will I do at Wealthy Affiliate?“
Here we go with 4 simple steps:
To begin with, you will choose an interest or passion that you may have, it can be anything you like doing. Then you will build a website, what can be done in 30 seconds thanks to an amazing feature called SiteRubix. After that, you will create content and focus on getting visitors to your website. Lastly, you will sell services/products that your audience wants and earn money. And because of the fact that you’re going to build a business based on something you love, you will enjoy the process and it will be much easier for you to succeed! 🙂
What does Wealthy Affiliate include?
As I said before, Wealthy Affiliate includes everything needed to run an online business. All-in-one! In this section we’ll look further into it.
I believe that having the right support system will save you a lot of time and frustrations, I mean you won’t have to spend hours searching the web to find answers to your questions and you won’t need to wait for days to get a response on how to fix a technical issue.
For example, if you need help with anything related to your website, you’ll be able to contact SiteSupport and you’ll have your questions answered within minutes. You will also be able to interact with WA members via the Live chat, discussions (blogs & questions) and private messages.
But what if I tell you that the owners will also be available to help you out? Kyle and Carson are very active within the community and always helping other members! 😀
What about the training? WA provides training that comes in various forms: step by step tutorials, video tutorials, task-based courses and WAbinars (live training classes). This training covers a wide range of topics like PPC marketing, SEO, email marketing, affiliate marketing, website development, video marketing…
As a Free member you’ll have access to the Getting Started course (10 lessons), the phase one of the WA Affiliate Bootcamp course (10 lessons) and training included in 3 classrooms.
If you decide to become a Premium member you’ll have access to all the courses, all the training included in the 13 classrooms and all the WAbinars. Every day more training created by experts is being added to the platform.
This program also offers great tools you’ll be able to benefit from. These tools will enable you to search for important keywords & phrases and analyze your competition, among other things. See the list of tools below:
- Keyword research tool
- Keyword lists (low competiton keywords)
- Rapid writer (used for mini blogging, enables you to save articles and measure keyword density)
- SiteRubix website & hosting platform
- More than 3000 website templates and themes
- Link tracking (optimizes your Internet marketing campaigns)
Websites & Hosting
Once you’re a WA member, you will have access to the SiteRubix website & hosting platform that will enable you to build your own optimized WordPress websites.
The SiteRubix platform includes some amazing features like SiteManager (access to your sites & site health), SiteDomains (find, register and manage your domains), SiteFeedback (get feedback on your sites), SiteSupport (technical support for your websites), among others.
As a Starter member, you will be allowed to build 2 free SiteRubix.com websites and have them hosted at WA for free.
In case you decide to become a Premium member, you’ll be able to build a lot of websites (25 free websites + 25 own domains), choose between thousands of templates & themes and get to have an incredible hosting experience having your websites secure!
Why join Wealthy Affiliate?
After searching and having tried other programs, I can say that Wealthy Affiliate is by far the most reliable online business program & community. If you’re wondering why it’s my personal choice, read the reasons below:
- You can join for free without entering any credit card information.
- It gives you the option to decide whether to pay for the Premium membership or not, you can stay free forever (even though I don’t recommend it if you’re serious about your business)!
- The Starter membership provides everything needed to start your business, from 2 free WordPress websites to 20 free lessons.
- There are no upsells beyond the premium membership.

It is refreshing to find an affiliate marketing program that doesn’t cost you an arm and a leg. This Wealthy Affiliate sounds like the real thing.
I especially love that you can start for free and then only pay $49.00 per month for all of the training and tools. I have never seen any other opportunity that would offer so much for so little a cost.
I think Wealthy Affiliate is going to be something everyone should try because if it is free to start, then what do you have to lose? Thanks for the review.
Exactly Robert, I absolutely agree with you! I believe everybody should give Wealthy Affiliate a try because the starter membership is completely free so there’s 0 risk, it also includes lots of valuable training and the community is very supportive. I don’t know anyone who regretted joining =)
All the best 🙂
Question…What If my site offers advice, do it yourself how-to’s a 5yr old can understand and do, really nice money saving do it yourself decorating ideas, and stuff like that, not physical product…how do you make profit off of that?
Thanks for commenting & asking!
You can monetize that content with ads and you can also join affiliate networks like Amazon Associates where you can find products that your audience will find useful to apply what you’ve explained. For example: if you write a post related to DIY crafts, you can link your visitors to the tools and materials you’ve used for your creations. I believe anything can be monetized!
I hope this helps =)
Have a great day!
Robert is totally correct. Its nice to see a company allow you to kick the tires and go for a spin. Before you invest in the program.
Yes, it’s great that you can get started for free at WA and it’s optional to upgrade.
I like your Blog informative and also I am keen to join Wealthy Affiliates. How to find the right Niche ?
It means a lot to know that you like my blog =) My advice for you is that you think about all your passions and interests and then do market research to determine which is likely to be more profitable. You can use Google Trends to check out how popular your niches are and have been over time.
This is something addressed in the Wealthy Affiliate training. I, other bloggers and the owners of Wealthy Affiliate will help you get started, decide the right niche for you and more =)
I mean profitable Niche ?
I replied you in the previous comment.
Thanks for visiting! =)
I have been ripped off so many times. I am looking for a site that I can work and REALLY make money.
I live on disability Social Security. I only make $958 a month which doesn’t pay my bills. I’m unable to work due to my ex-husband trying to kill me and now I’m disabled wheelchair-bound and some days bed-bound. I have worked since the age of 12. I’m now 61. Even though most days I am bed-bound I want to be working. It says I can start for free and then I can buy the premium. I would be interested in the premium if I see that this really truly works. But I’m not getting how I make the money or what I’m doing to make the money can you please explain it to me a little better. Thank you for your time God bless
I’m really sorry to hear about your current situation and the fact that you’ve been scammed a lot of times… I imagine how frustrating it must be 🙁
Yes, you can get started for free and then it’s optional to upgrade to Premium, even though I recommend it if you’re serious about this.
You’ll basically learn to build an affiliate marketing business based on something you love. You’ll first choose a niche (a topic you’re passionate about), then you’ll build a website/blog (Wealthy Affiliate has a site builder platform that makes it easy to build a site), you’ll create content related to the topic you’ve chosen in order to attract visitors to your blog and then you’ll monetize your blog by promoting other people’s products that are relevant to your visitors.
This method really works if you’re willing to work hard on this. It might take some months to get the results you want but in the end it will be worth it, trust me. You can also go at your own pace and ask for help & support within Wealthy Affiliate, there’s always someone willing to help you out =) You can learn more by checking out my review of Wealthy Affiliate.
I hope this helps! Take care and have a great day =)
Ty for your time and help.
You’re welcome! =)
so how do you make monney on the site you build and how long dose it take
You’ll make money through affiliate marketing, which means that you’ll be promoting other people’s products and earn commissions off each sale you make. You can read this post I wrote about building an affiliate marketing business.
To be honest, there are lots of factors to take into account to determine how long it will take. It depends on the niche you choose (some niches are more profitable and more competitive than others), the amount of time you dedicate to this and your work ethic also play a big role on this, and the skills and experience you have are also important.
There are people who have worked full-time on this and until the 6th month have not earned any money, and there are others that are more experienced and get to earn money the first month they build their site. Know that this business is something you’re building for the long term and it requires a lot of patience, learning and effort. This is why a lot of people end up giving up. They expect to get results soon but this business doesn’t work like that. This business is not like a job where you expect to get paid at the end of every month just for working a x amount of hours.
Hope this helps!
Happy new year Miren. I love your blog and dedication to each question asked.. I guess i will stick to your updates.
Thanks a lot for your positive comment, I appreciate it!
Happy New Year to you too! =)
The system does not accept Nigerians and some countries.
Yes, the countries I’ve mentioned in the cons section of my Wealthy Affiliate review can’t join for free, but if they’re serious about their business, they can sign up as premium members.
Hey miren I haven’t yet joined the free account and it will probably explain to me how I do it once I’m in but is it a difficult task to try and get the ads to advertise and sell things for markets to do with my topic?
The lessons and tasks are not difficult to understand, even though it takes time to build an audience and get quality traffic to your site once it’s built. However, I believe that you can do this if you keep learning, always take action and never give up. After joining Wealthy Affiliate, you’ll be told where to get started and will be able to ask questions whenever you want. I’m always available so you can drop a message on my profile whenever you feel lost or need help.
HI MIREN I CAME ACROSS UR SITE WAS INTERESTING TO SEE WHAT YOU SAY ABOUT BANNER BIT I WAS THINKING WHAT A WAY TO MAKE MONEY BUT OBV WAS SCAMMED ,SO IM NEW TO THIS AND WOULD LOVE TO SE HOW I GET STARTED ( I HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO DO THIS ) JUST WANNA MAKE SOME CASH LIKE ANYBODY ELSE …………PLEASE HELP
Sorry to hear you got scammed… Well, keep in mind that making money online is not easy like scam artists want you to believe. You’ll have to put in the work and time but if you’re willing to learn, work, be patient and stay persistent I don’t see why you can’t do it.
If you’re looking to make a full-time income online, I recommend that you read this article I wrote about affiliate marketing, which is the business model I’m using to make money.
If you have any questions let me know, I hope this helps!
I love money
In my case, I love the good things that can be done with money.
While I would love to take your word for it, I am still skeptical.
Also, I don’t have a single dollar to spend on maybes.
So my 2 questions are:
– How long does it take to learn the system enough to start making money?
– Can you / do you make ANY money as a Starter member? Is there a limit of how much?
– Once you’re a paid member, is there any guarantee of making money?
I understand you’re still skeptical. I remember I was skeptical before getting started.
Well, learning the training and making money depends on many factors like the amount of time and effort you’re willing to dedicate to it, your experience, your knowledge, your skills…
When it comes to beginners, it usually takes them from 3 to 6 months to make the first dollar. In my case, I remember it took me like 4 months to make my first commission. This is just like any great things worth achieving in life. If you follow the training, complete the tasks, ask questions and never stop taking action, you will end up seeing the results you desire. It’s just a matter of time and effort.
Yes, it’s possible to earn money as a starter member but it takes way longer than if you were a premium member because a lot of the training included in the premium membership is important when you’re serious about making money. No matter the business you start, you will have to make a tiny investment sooner or later. When it comes to building an affiliate marketing business, investing on your own website, hosting, security and support is something everyone who’s serious about it ends up doing.
There’s no limit when it comes to the amount of money you can earn, this is the beauty of having an online business. This is not like a job where your boss decides how much you’re going to get paid. The more time and effort you put into this business, the more you will learn and the more you will earn. There are people who have reached the $10,000 per month mark within 3 or 4 years.
The truth is that there’s nothing guaranteed. If making money was guaranteed then everyone would be doing this, but I see a lot of people give up too soon. Anything worth achieving requires you to take a risk. If this were easy and there was no risk involved, then a lot of people would not think twice when it comes to starting a business. That’s why scam products are easy to sell, scammers always tell people what they want to hear. They want people to think they’re guaranteed to make money easily just to make a quick buck. But this does not work for the long-term because people end up finding out that there’s no guarantee they will make money.
You will never hear from me that you’re guaranteed to make money or that you don’t have to do much work to earn money. What’s good about Wealthy Affiliate is that they allow people to join for free, which is good for people who are skeptical and want to know what this is like on the inside. There are members who follow the free training and upgrade whenever they want. Some do it their first week while others do it within a few months. Every person is in a different situation so I recommend that you do what’s best for you.
I and other members will be there to help and support you if you decide to join, it’s up to you!
Have a great day =)
How to join ?
Click here to join =)
good info, thanks….
You’re welcome, glad you liked it 🙂
There’s no free account for my country
I’d appreciate if you could help me subscribe.. Thanks
Where are you from? I’m sorry, but in some countries WA has no free membership…
WA looks good and true, but will the Monthly Premium Membership of $49/month be covered by an income from WA or I have to continue paying from my pocket for nothing?
Yes, Abdelgadir, WA is the real deal.
When it comes to the Premium membership, I would think of it as a business investment. I only recommend that you invest in the Premium membership if you’re serious about your online business, since you will have to invest in your own website, hosting, security, support… all of which is included in the Premium membership, plus you also get access to all the step-by-step training, tools like the keyword research tool, and all the help and support from the members (myself included).
If you’re not willing to put in the effort and time to build your business, then I don’t recommend that you purchase the Premium membership because that would be paying for nothing.
I hope this helps!
