I’m glad that you were able to find my site. I like to think of WA as your 1 stop shop for just about anything you want to learn about online/affiliate marketing. They teach SEO, PPC, Email marketing, Video Marketing, and everything in between. The training offered at OMG doesn’t quite live up to my standards, and it’s extremely overpriced in my opinion.
I have no marketing talent whatsoever, but, I am happy to know that I can learn marketing talent and skill from Wealthy Affiliate. I do have a desire to make money online, and according to the reputation of Wealthy Affiliate, it seems like a viable choice to enlist their services. However, I have not the slightest idea of what good or service I could market and I’m skeptical that whatever idea I may have has already been done and is more popular and of more use than whatever good or service I have in mind. In this case I like the philosophy “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” I would add that I do have an interest in video games, making a website to encourage consumers on their purchasing decisions and increase their knowledge about video game software and hardware is an inventive suggestion, but isn’t there already many YouTube channels that do just this? Furthermore, even if I made such a website, I wouldn’t want to make money by scamming or much less spamming people with shameless product placements and advertisement placement populating the majority of such a website.
Thank you for the article! You really provided a fair explanation of how Wealthy Affiliate works. Since this is simply a guide on how to successfully create and run your online business, am I allowed to cancel my membership after a period of time? I know that you said that there’s no limitation to cancelling my subscription, but what would be the benefit to continuing as a member even after I have learned all I needed and I’m successful in my business? What will I be losing if I opted to cancel after I’ve been successful? I’m just trying to learn if they (the founders of Wealthy Affiliate) expect people to pay the monthly or yearly fee forever or until they’ve acquired the success they desire. I look forward to your response!

Hello Chris, I am planning to join Wealthy Affiliate as a premium. But I am a 33-yr old woman who does not have a common sense like I get from most people. I am also a woman who does not have that much intellectual capacity. So I’m not sure how much my brain can comprehend and how much my brain can take all the information from WA. Do you think I should just give it a try?
But there are problems with the domain specific email address. For some reason I can only receive emails. If I try to send or reply it gets caught in a perpetual loop and never gets sent. Technical support says it doesn’t see the problem. But their tests only use local servers which are not filtered thru a network. Will moving the domain to a different webhost fix this problem? I can’t be sure, but I need to look for a solution somewhere.
Once I get a better idea of what you are interested in I can help you narrow down your niche and get you started down the right path. You can write your websites in whatever language you want and the one that you are most comfortable with. Google will translate them into the language that people have selected as their primary language. This is called Google translate and you may have visited a site that was in another language and had a pop up come up asking if you would like to have this website translated into your language of choice.
I'm thinking about building a new site and partnering with someone. We would split the commission 50/50 and we would have to talk and see how to split up the work based on our skill sets. I would own the domain and you would open the affiliate accounts and receive the payment. After the payment is issued, you send me my half. Or we could have a joint PayPal account and divvy up the payments from there (I do this now with a friend and it works well). And of course, I would give preference to premium Wealthy Affiliate members when picking a partner because I know they know their stuff.
You sign up for FREE and never not once charge you a dime!! Unless you choose to upgrade that is your choice to do so! They never force or hassle money out of your pocket unlike other MLM companies online that try to make you scale up! Now that's SCAMMING ppl to not let them have the opportunity to have hands on access. WA they give you ALL ACCESS!! And people complaint about WA?? Are you kidding me!! I love Wealthy Affiliate and if some of you have issues about them them try to have myself and a million other followers and WA affiliates say anything negative... but that will suck because there is NOTHING NEGATIVE TO SAY ABOUT WEALTHY AFFILIATES. And as far as I know Kyle is NEVER rude!! Let's make that VERY CLEAR!!
I googled a product provider like Amazon and saw how much It would cost me to actually make a partnership with them, I was surprise to find it was free for the first month but than I saw after that, it was $25 per month? And than I was horrified to read further down the email that was sent to me, Kyle, claiming it took him three whole months just to earn his first dollar! I would have lost $50 by the time I saw my first dollar, which would have been about 80p because I live in the United Kingdom.
Thanks for stopping by. As regards your question, unfortunately this is not a get rich quick scheme. It’s probable that you don’t see any earnings on your first months. You will need to invest time building your site from scratch: this means publishing good articles, creating a nice layout, etc. If you want to accelerate the process you can outsource your content and SEO but that will cost you more money.

I already have a website and a domain name. My website is made with WordPress, and GoDaddy hosts the website. Would I have to move my website to another host, that is part of WA? Also I am thinking of keeping the website much the same way it is now(with a few changes). I already have a blog page, can I just add my links there? I have a gardening business, and I want to talk about ergonomic tools, pads, sun hats, shoes, bug spray, garden related art or jewelry, proper use of one’s body while gardening, getting the most from your gardening and achieving health and wellness through gardening. Not just the movement of digging, or hauling mulch, but with every technique I teach.
Thank you for the reply. You have been on WA for a few years. As there are many different niches; from your knowledge, how many niches(if more than 1) should one person have to provide others with eye catching sites with solid and valuable information make a comfortable living(6 figure) as there are abundance of overwhelming information? You answer pretty fast, which I like. Thanks.

We were all new to online business at some point in time. Personally, for me, I had absolutely no experience when I got started and I can totally relate to how you must feel about now. You can still join WA as a premium member no matter where you live Willz. If you happen to live in 1 of the countries I mentioned above, you just wouldn’t be able to take advantage of the free starter membership.
This support will be by email or personal message or whatever way you are most comfortable with just let me know. If you haven’t already done so I would encourage you to sign up for your Free account and fill out your profile by adding a image and description. I will be getting in touch with you shortly after that to guide you in the right direction. i look forward to working with you Dennis and if you have anymore questions please let me know.

Hi Alex, Thanks for the great review of Wealthy Affiliate. I was doing some research for months whether to join or not. Now, I finally decided to join. I will join with your affiliate link. I will also definitely join premium membership. BUT, before I join I want you to answer me one question. Here is my case, I am from Ethiopia where there is no international banking or card, and PayPal is not functional either. But I find a way to get a master card from Payoneer(international MasterCard provider). Also I managed to load my card with $104 from fiverr. That’s all I got. This will cover 2 months of my premium membership fees. So my question is: From training I got from WA will I get $100 with the end of 2nd month to cover my 3rd and 4th month fees? (considering I will work to my maximum potential and my niche will be new trendy topic.)
Finally, if you’re only planning on “dipping your toes in the water” to see what affiliate marketing is all about, do not sign up for the premium membership. The free membership is more than enough for you to see what it’s all about. Premium membership should be reserved for those who are actually serious about building a real business for themselves. If you aren’t in this for the long-haul, there is no reason to waste your money.
As regards to the final question "Is wealthy Affiliate Worth it?", the answer is Yes. I do recommend it to anyone who is willing to put hard work and effort on his business online. As I said previously on this review, you won't get rich overnight but if you manage to follow the training step by step and you are consistent, I guarantee you that you will se results.
Sometimes, individual entrepreneurs with great products are worth a look, although you should check them out first and do some research. Entrepreneurs or companies may run their own affiliate program and you can apply directly to them to promote their products and services. Finally, Amazon is always an option as you can be an affiliate for just about any type of physical product on their network.
I come from the world of mlm where I have been taken advantage off 🙁 How are these network marketing companies are still legal is beyond me. I was searching on how to get a refund from the company I joined and I came across your website. finally someone who doesnt promise to make me rich overnight and explains how to build an actual wealth form home. I think it’s your honesty and transparency that got me curious about online marketing and the affiliate business.
Thank you for sharing this thorough review about Wealthy Affiliate of which l am also a premium member for a while. I am totally agree with you that Wealthy Affiliate is the best Affiliate Marketing Training platform in the industry. They do provide all the necessary features for you to succeed in your online business, but you must work hard and devote your time and effort into your training and business.
I am from Canada and I work as Customer Relations. My Concern is that I work for 4 days and I am off for next 4 days and I really want to make money when I am off for 4 days. Do you really think this is going to work for me as its 4 days on and 4 days off. If you think it’s going to work then I might sign up under you as you really being helpful for everyone and I will also be expecting a huge help from you as I have no knowledge how to work this.
It doesn't teach you how to get on the first page of Google at all. That's a huge part of affiliate marketing. What good is it to have a well-built site if nobody sees it? No, it doesn't teach how to run ads either. It just teaches you how to look for niches, find keywords, and build a website. I had high hopes for this course but was disappointed after joining.

I have been researching Affiliate Marketing for a while now, but I got confused each time I read new article on the subject. I was hoping to get more confused when I started reading this write up, but instead it explained to me in clear terms, the meaning of Affiliate Marketing. I can say that the foundation for leaning the subject has just been laid in my mind.
You can Get Started For Free by creating a starter account. You are free to remain as a starter member for as long as you would like until you are ready to take your business to the next level by investing in the premium membership. The $299 price that someone below is asking about is WA’s yearly Black Friday sale where you can get an entire year of the best training, tools, and around the clock help and support for pennies a day.
I have been a member of Wealthy Affiliate for close to a year. The lessons are great and easy to follow. There is so much information here that it takes a while to take it all in. They teach you to build your own website, join affiliate groups, write good content, and share it on social media. They have an awesome, positive community. I can talk to members from all over the world. We are willing to share our knowledge to help each other. After three months we can write trainings of our own to add to the wealth of information that is already available to WA members. It starts out free to join, with 7 days of free lessons, free starter membership and two free websites. You must go premium after that; but there is a discount for the first month. There is a discount also for going yearly. The training and community make the cost worthwhile. I give WA an A+++++++!
When I was a beginner and decided to join Wealthy Affiliate as a free member, one thing was evident right away. Wealthy Affiliate was designed with the beginner in mind. The one thing that I haven't talked about yet is time. If you can carve out 1-2 hours a night, you'll be on track to making a living. If you can't make time for the course, you shouldn't join the premium membership.
I know that you too can achieve this level of success if you can devote an hour or two to it everyday. Wealthy Affiliate will teach you how to start an online business that will grow everyday. Everyone is different and you could make your first sale with a month or 2, or it might take you longer than that. This is all up to how committed you are to this and how much effort you put into it. The thing I love about this is that unlike a regular J.O.B the harder you work at this the more money you can make. With a job, you might get a .50 raise a year but since I have been doing this my income has raised almost $100 every month.
I think that area is where I’m seeing gray and a little confused by. I would LOVE to continue to stay home with my children, but baby daddy (ha) has been on workman’s comp since April when he was seriously Injured and making only 66% of your normal pay can be very debilitating! I’m now needing to find a way to help supplement. I really dislike the idea kf working some blah job and making someone else money. But would I just be making YOU money here ? and needing to recruit others the same way you are trying to do now? I know your review says no, but it’s not making sense.
I am glad I stumbled on your site (was googling if Swagbucks was worth it and I saw your blog post about it). I thought you sounded reasonable so I checked out the rest of your blog and decided to sign up for the free 5 day course, which on Day 1 you suggest signing up for WA. It all sounds great, and I appreciate your explanation about the Amazon affiliate vs. seller.

If you did actually cancel your Wealthy Affiliate account before your renewal date and still got charged then I highly suggest getting in touch with WA support or emailing Kyle directly. Glitches happen from time to time and as far as I have seen WA always cancels these kinds of transactions. Also an account cannot be downgraded from Premium to Basic. You can however transfer your website away from WA if you wish to do so, even after you cancel your membership.
I don't like Facebook groups because Facebook loves to shove ads in your face and distract you. I've gotten on Facebook many time to engage with an entrepreneur community only to get distracted by my news feed or ads. Wealthy Affiliate really got rid of the distractions by building the community into the platform. No ads, no dramatic statuses. Just pure business. I really like that.
File-Sharing: Web sites that host directories of music, movies, games and other software. Users upload content to file-hosting sites and then post descriptions of the material and their download links on directory sites. Uploaders are paid by the file-hosting sites based on the number of times their files are downloaded. The file-hosting sites sell premium download access to the files to the general public. The websites that host the directory services sell advertising and do not host the files themselves.
I’m glad that you were able to find my site. I like to think of WA as your 1 stop shop for just about anything you want to learn about online/affiliate marketing. They teach SEO, PPC, Email marketing, Video Marketing, and everything in between. The training offered at OMG doesn’t quite live up to my standards, and it’s extremely overpriced in my opinion.
Wow this is a really comprehensive review of Wealthy Affiliate and I have learned things I never knew even though I’ve been a member for nearly 3 months. I love the program though and agree with what you have said. I also love the testimonials you have and the evidence you have given that people can make a living online. My own income is small but growing and i know that I’m investing in my future. Thanks for such an thorough review.
Before you get into the thick of things, you need to select a niche that you are comfortable with. It is best if you have some formal learning in it, but it is perfectly all right to be a newbie to the sector, as long as it is a topic that you like researching on and writing about. To be an affiliate marketer, you need your own platform – a website or a blog where you can post links and advertise your chosen products.
I am absolutely floored by your review! It is the most in-depth, thorough, creative, and satisfying review I have ever, EVER read! All my questions are answered. I joined in August and have had life interfer with my plans of moving forward with WA. I guess I was losing motivation and by doing so, I allowed simple things to manipulate my progress. But, I have to tell you, after  reading your review, it has absolutely kicked my arse into gear, and I, or I should say you, got my motor running! I dare say, every newbie MUST read this post! It is not only motivational and inspirational, it is spectacular!! I must ask though…what was your career before WA? Some great orator or speech writer??? God bless you and your talent! 

So, first you select whether you want a free domain or a paid domain. As a second step, you select the domain name you want (be careful, this can not be changed!). Next step is to select a Title for your website (don't worry, you can change this at any moment). Final step, is to choose a theme layout for your site. This can also be changed whenever you want.

Hi Scott. Well I must say, you certainly have made this sound very attractive. For the past year I have just been trying to figure out how all this works. ( I’m 49 ) I am not Tech Savvy!! Did not actually get my very first computer till a year & 1/2 ago( Don’t know what took so long 🙁 ). The Internet world, ( so I have heard it called ) is a scarry place :(, and if you want to become involved in it like I do, it’s hard to know where to start, who to beleive, who to listen to, very scarry. But I truly have to say that after reading your review of WA, I do feel alot more comfortable about finley finding someplace to start. I will be joing your program later this morning, after the birds wake up 🙂 (it’s only 5am right now). I would like to Thank You for the time you have put in to this review of WA, and giving me the sense of finally being able to say, I can trust this guy Scott. You have a nice day, and I do look forward to talking with you more down the road.
I wouldn’t advise you to build a website about a celebrity as this could possibly result in some legal issues. I’m not sure how you would earn any money by simply writing about celebrity news and posting pics of them. The whole idea here lola is to build a website based on something you’re passionate about or a hobby of yours. What kind of things are you interested in and what could you see yourself writing about for the next couple of years without getting bored with it?
Thanks for your reply. Some of my interests are movies, sing, dance, chat, read, travel(haven’t done much), read, watching tv, electronics, computer, games, social media, sports, food, health, money, business and more. Some interests I like more than others. I know that was too broad of an answer. If possible, I’d like to write about as much of my interests as possible. I think I asked all I could think of. Anything else I haven’t asked that you think I should know about, being a newbie and all?
When I say that I love Wealthy Affiliate, I’m not just saying that because I’m an affiliate for them. I’m a very active premium member at Wealthy Affiliate and love interacting with people on a daily basis. If you join, you’ll see me posting on people’s profiles, answering questions, chatting in the live chat area, and I have private personal messaging conversations multiple times per day.
While on-page SEO is like the body of car, off-page SEO is like the engine. Without a solid foundational body, the entire site will fall apart. But with no off-page SEO, the beautiful website will just sit there going unnoticed. Despite what you might have heard, links are still one of the biggest factor to getting your site ranked high in Google.  How To Make Money On Wealthy Affiliate 2018 - Comprehensive Review, Results, & Tour
