So what is Wealthy Affiliate, it is a platform that teaches marketing affiliating. What is marketing affiliating, you ask? Market Affiliating is a method of marketing in which a business rewards a person for each customer that your webside brings to their website to purchase a product.  An example would be, you are promoting women’s skates and do a review of a specific skate which links to Amazon and the consumer purchases the product thru your link, you receive a commision. 

So, what that means for the online business, you build a website, persuant to your niche. What is a niche? A niche is a specific product/service of a specific market. An example would be, winter sports would be the market, but your niche is women’s skates. You would direct traffic thru your website to the website selling the skates. If the customer buys the product, you get paid a commission. 

The online business is growing in leaps and bounds and this is seen as a way to the future.

The Good


  • Excellent Training – The training at Wealthy Affiliate is exceptional. It is step by step, with accountability steps along the way. Once you do a lesson, they give you an assignment to do. This reinforces the lesson you have just read and listened to. They also have classrooms, specific to different areas of affiliate marketing.


  • Excellent Support – The  support that is given here at Wealthy Affiliate is like one I have never experienced.  Site Support will answer any technical questions at any time of the day.  They are available 7 days a week 24 hours a day.  And they get back to you quickly and help you resolve the issues in a very timely manner.
    • There is also the support from within the community.  If you need help with the training someone within the community will be happy to help you.  If they don’t know the answer, they will lead you to the person who does.  Which leads us to the next advantage.


  • Outstanding Community –  The group of individuals that are at Wealthy Affiliate are truly exceptional people.  This community acts on the “pay it forward” philosophy as the owners wanted it to be.  It is an amazing opportunity to watch the sharing of information, the problem solving among the members. Ask the question and someone will get back to you, and there are several ways to ask a question.  Great place to get support and inspiration.

The Bad


  • It is by no means a Get rich quick scheme
    • If you expect to make money quickly, wrong place.  You need to put in the work to reap the benefits. Some people start seeing money after a week, others are longer, some months. It all depends on your time you dedicate to it.  It is worth the effort, as the earning potential is unlimited.


  • There is alot to learn
    • You need to learn how to build the website, learn about niches, get traffic, plugs-ins, SEO’s, how to build into social media, create videos and so much more.  If you love to learn test it out.


If their is so much work and time for this to create an income, why do it? Well, Wealthy Affiliate teaches you how to create residual income. You do the work now, and eventually the income will build. If you want to work at home, be your own boss this is for you. If you want to be able to travel and do some work, this is for you.

They also have an Affiliate Bootcamp Course, which consists of 7 Courses and 10 lessons in each course. The training in these courses is step by step training.

They also have classrooms where members have posted questions and training videos specific to those classrooms. Other members answer the questions and it’s members that usually create these great training videos.  You can also post random questions and others will answer these as well.  They have much to offer.


The support I found here is exception. They have site support for all technical questions. They have a live chat room. Because this platform is worldwide their is always someone on live chat that can answer your questions and help walk you thru your problem.

The community is very large and inspiring. They encourage others when they are feeling defeated. They inspire you with their blogs that are posted on WA community blog. You can Personal Message another member for one on one help. And you can have a coach.

I already mentioned the training, that is terrific. You only pay one price for the entire platform. No hidden fees.


So above I mentioned the cost to a member. For the free week-long trial, 7 days, no cost, you have access to the First Course of either the Online Entreapeur Certifiaction or the Affiliate Bootcamp Course. That’s 10 lessons and you will have a website up and running at the end. You can use the live chat to interact with other members.

Special offer for First month after free trial of $19 for month. For $19 the first month, you get to experience the entire platform. Carry on with your training in your course, more research, the affiliate programs and the live training events.  You get to try the platform out witt a very minimal cost.

Once you have experimented with the first month, you can make the decision to carry on, monthly is $49 and if you can afford the yearly it  is $359 which is a savings of $229.

The value that is offered here is incredible. 


In my honest opinion, it is up to you. If you are in need of a quick cashflow, this is not the program for you. If you are willing to put in the work and time that is required to build an online business, this is a great place to come. They have a proven track record and have been in business for 15 years.
