Wealthy Affiliate an Online Business Answer


The Best Program on the Net or is it?

When you come across something really good, something that really works and you have proven it the first thing you want to do is to share it.

I came across such a site 18 months ago. I learned an incredible amount through the training and I have been able to build 11 websites as a result of that training.

Now I want to share some of that knowledge so others can also benefit from all the goodies contained within the Wealthy Affiliate program.

It seems like everyone wants to have an online business these days and there are so many choices of programs out there that it is really difficult to determine whether or not they are genuine or value for money.

I have tried many different programs, some of them with hefty price tags to join others with a multitude of empty promises.

Its like when you go to the city and are attracted by the place with the most effective lighting and store ambiance but when you go inside and take a closer look you find it contains nothing but cheap imported junk. The shop assistant might hover over you within minutes of entering the store, like a pop up on a website. She/he will be programmed to push you into a sale for something you really don’t want or need. You part with a few dollars and leave never to return but feeling like you have wasted your time and money.

This is how it is with many of those online programs promising you success or the potential to make large amounts of money but they never deliver on the goods.

Wealthy Affiliate Under Scrutiny:

Some questions to answer.

1. Is it true to its claims?

Wealthy Affiliate claims to offer a very comprehensive training program to teach people how to build and establish an online business.

It does this very well and does in fact honor all of its claims in this regard. There are 7 different course components being covered through 70 easy to follow lessons. Below is a screen shout giving an outline of the course offered within Wealthy Affiliate. When you join you can work through each component progressively.


2. Is it affordable?

The cost is always a critical question when choosing any product. We want value for money and we do not want to break our budget. With Wealthy Affiliate you can start with a 7-day free trial, then if you like what you see you can opt to work with a free website until you begin to feel more confident.

If you find you are getting real value from the program then it is wise to opt to become a premium member. With premium membership you can continue all the lessons and you can build up to 50 websites. Obviously that is a sound choice and a no brainer.

Free Starter Membership: Completely Free, No credit card info needed, No limited “trial period”. Hit this link.

Premium Membership: $49/month or $359/year (You can get your first month of Premium Membership at $19 you can join just by hitting the link below.

If you purchase a yearly membership on Black Friday you can make big savings.


3. Is there adequate support available when I need it?

Wealthy Affiliate offers phenomenal and fast support within the community of its members. You only have to lodge a question and within minutes several members will reply to offer assistance. If it cannot be resolved that way then you can send a message to Support and they will be on to it as quickly as possible and it will soon be resolved.

Below is a snapshot of some of the questions I have asked and you can see the number of responses I received to each.

Wealthy Affiliate has very strict guidelines and rules for what you can and cannot post online. If you breach these they can come down on you like a tonne of bricks and they make it very difficult to get answers as to why they have taken this disciplinary action. . They particularly react to any form of spam being posted in any of the public member areas of the site like Live Chat or Questions or even your own blog post.

Whilst I agree that they need to stick with the guidelines I do feel it would be common courtesy to inform people of why they have taken such disciplinary action. A policeman does not take away your driving license without telling you why, you cannot be dismissed from any work place without good reason in writing.

That being said this is my only complaint about Wealthy Affiliate, every other aspect of the program is exceptional so if you can work within the rules you will be OK.


4. Can I really make Money with Wealthy Affiliate?

They say the proof of the pudding is in the eating. Some people have had tremendous success in Wealthy Affiliate and others are moving along more slowly. I have been one of the latter.  In this section I will draw on some who have done well.

The first one who comes to mind has to be a young 24-year old who seems to have mastered internet marketing really well and is turning a good profit. This young man is now earning 4 figures every month and its growing.

I could spend a lot of time researching Wealthy Affiliate Success stories but it has already been done on this website so I will provide you with a link to take a look and read about a few of the people who have done well on line with WA.


Therefore the answer to my initial question is yes you can make money on Wealthy Affiliate however I am not personally making any from my business yet. I will continue to work towards that end.

One way of making money with Wealthy Affiliate is to promote the program. Here is a snapshot of the compensation you will receive if you are successful.

    Wow, 11 websites? How much do you pay for hosting? What kind of platform are they using? The last time I tried buildingg two, it didn’t work out well because I have difficulty with maintenance. One wasn’t generating any revenue, so I thought I would just focus on one website for now. I am curious to know, out of the 11, how do you scale them to make profit? If you don’t mind sharing. Thank you.

      Hi Cathy, thank you for visiting. I allocate at least 1 per day to update.  The profit has not happened for me yet. But I will let you know when it does.   They say a physical business takes up to 5 years before it really starts to make a profit. Its only been a little over 12 months since I started.  I think your decision to concentrate on one is a wise one so stick with it, get it paying then build another.

    This is quite convincing. Wealthy Affiliate does have a great reputation, I read a lot about it lately.

    I love the success story of Jerry Huang, it sounds almost too good to be true. Is this the rule for Wealthy Affiliate members or is he an exception?

    Another question, if I join now for free, can I upgrade on Black Friday to premium yearly membership?

    Anyway, I want to start looking into this training, I am long enough on the lookout for something exactly like this.

      Stefan thank you for visiting my site and commenting. You can certainly take advantage of the free membership  now and get the premium with the Black Friday discount . I presume you are already on the free though.

    I have been searching for a place where I can truly learn how to make money online, and the best one, without a doubt, is Wealthy Affiliate.  I agree with you that WA has a lot of benefits and it is not a scam.

    One of the best things that WA has to offer is the huge community that it has. Everybody is very supportive and, if you are part of this community, you will make new friends and you will start growing your network of people that will help you achieve your goals.
