Testimonials: Read Reviews
Before I get started on my review let’s get a few things out in the open.
If you’ve been through this website, it’s obvious I’m a member of Wealthy Affiliate. So I know you’re going to say, “Of course this is going to be a good review, you’re a member”.
I will defend myself by saying this…….
I’ve been a member of several of the programs out there like,
- Dot Com Secrets
- Commission Junction
- Elite Marketing Pro
- Six Figure Shorcut
- Warrior Forum
In fact, I’m still a member of some of them because of the effort I’ve put into them. I’m not saying they are all bad programs, I’ll actually be doing reviews on them in the future.
But for me, none of them compare to WA and my review will tell you why.
With that in mind, here it is.
What Is Wealthy Affiliate
I’ll start by telling you what it’s not. It’s not a get rich scheme or some rags to riches system and you’ll quickly be told that up front when you join. If you think you’ll start making money right away, then it’s not for you.
WA is a step by step training center that teaches you how to start a business from the ground up. They train, educate and support. Whether you want to promote someone else’s product (affiliate) or sell your own product, WA will show how.
WA is an online community or as I like to call it, an entrepreneur’s hangout. Not only do you have access to their staff, but you also have access to thousands of members ready to help you through your journey. If you need help, all you have to do is ask and the answers will start rolling.
Who Is Wealthy Affiliate For
WA is a good fit for all levels, from a beginner or an expert who is already running a successful business. It teaches you how to start an online business or take your current business to the next level. If you aren’t willing to take action on what you learn, then an online business is not for you. You have to invest time and effort and sometimes money to be successful.
WA is a good match for…..
- Internet Marketers
- Local businesses and companies
- Online merchants
- Local marketers
- People that wants to build their own websites
- People that want to sell their products online
- Retired people, looking for an additional income
- Individuals looking a trusted hosting platform
- College students
- Stay at home moms who have free to time
- People who want to turn their hobby into an additional income
- Bloggers and website owners that want to improve their websites
This list can go is ongoing, but I am sure that you already see the benefits.

Training & Tools
The most important feature for me is the step by step training. They literally take you by the hand every step of the way. The training is comprehensive, organized and up to date.

- Organized Classrooms (on specific topics)
- Interactive Discussions
- Video Training, Tutorial Training

During your training sessions, you will have tasks to complete before you can move on to the next session. This way you’re not missing any steps. Lot of good stuff there.

It’s a well known fact that people who have successful online businesses did not get there by themselves. They had some kind of mentor or support program. WA provides one on one training and support, making it easier for a beginner to start their online business.
The community aspect is something any person would love. If you’re having any difficulties with anything, all you have to do is ask for help. The thousands of member are more than happy to answer your questions. There is no competition here. Everyone is available to help. Read about different experiences, learn from others’ mistakes and brainstorm with others in the community. Whenever I write a new post or build a new website or page, members are more than happy to give me their opinion and advice to make them better. The owners, Kyle and Carson, are very active and always available to help. WA is the only place I’ve experienced this.
There are no dumb questions. Every question is important and they will get answered. There are a lot of resources available at WA. Maybe someone has already asked the question you’re seeking an answer to. You’ll find your answers there.
What Do You Get By Joining?
There are 2 different levels of membership, the basic (Free) and the premium. This is great because you can join without spending a dime. You can take it for a test ride per say. The great this about it is that even with the free membership you can build a business. Of course, you get more resources when you go premium, but trust me, once you see the potential, you will want to upgrade.
