Wealthy Affiliate Review

10 Years as a Wealthy Affiliate Member

~ A Personal Success Story ~

my wealthy affiliate review

My name is Jay and I have been a member of Wealthy Affiliate for the past 10 years.


Throughout those 10 years, I have continued to improve my own online business success as the direct result of the training, tools and support offered within Wealthy Affiliate.

The Wealthy Affiliate Review you are about to read is based on my own personal experience as a long time member and how I developed into the official live training coach inside Wealthy Affiliate.

I will also give you a real live case study of a recent member (with no previous experience) who joined Wealthy Affiliate and now has an income producing website because they followed the training, asked questions and took action.

If at any point you decide to join Wealthy Affiliate, be aware of the following:

  • It’s Free to Get Started
    There is no credit card needed as the Starter Membership is free
  • I’m Going to Help You
    I will be become your personal mentor/coach who will guide you down the right path of success (testimonials are below).
  • Dedicate Your Time
    You MUST be committed to learning, asking questions and taking action.

In the Beginning

Kyle and Carson of Wealthy Affiliate

Back in 2005, a couple of young Canadian guys (Carson & Kyle) started Wealthy Affiliate as a mere keyword list membership offering huge databases of high searched keywords for Pay-Per-Click campaigns. With Carson & Kyle already having online success prior to Wealthy Affiliate inception, it was only fitting that they created a website to help others learn how to be successful by following their model.

Throughout the years, the site developed more and more into a training portal as they added a forum and some training material.  This addition was a huge hit as more and more people joined based on other member’s feedback on how their training was innovative and up to date, an uncommon trait in the internet marketing training space.

But it didn’t stop there, Carson & Kyle always had the vision of constantly improving the membership and to help people learn about internet marketing by offering the BEST training platform available online. And they have far exceeded that vision.

Today, Wealthy Affiliate has been around for over 10 years and has more tools, training and support resources than any other place online.

The Takeaways:

  • Wealthy Affiliate has been around for over 10 years
  • Carson & Kyle (who I’ve met) genuinely want to help people
  • They were successful before they started Wealthy Affiliate

The Training

The whole intention of Wealthy Affiliate and joining the site is to learn about online marketing. The challenge of creating any learning portal is accommodating everyone learning style such as visual learners and reading learners.  Wealthy Affiliate’s training covers all the bases.

All the training inside the site is easy to follow and has a comment area right within the training to ask questions. Your questions are answered by either other members or by the founders respectively.

The training comes in several different formats and I will break each one down individually.

Core Training

Task Based Training at Wealthy Affiliate

As you get rolling with a Starter Account (which is free), they encourage you to dive right into the 1st course which is called Online Entrepreneur Certification – Getting Started (Level 1).  This course has 10 lessons and the end result is to really familiarize yourself with the concept of affiliate marketing.

As you go through the Level 1 training, there are several action based items that are required to complete. This is awesome because it keeps you engaged and allows you to interact within the community.

Certification Courses

Including the level 1 course, there are a total of 5 certification courses.

  1. Online Entrepreneur Certification – Getting Started
  2. Building Your Own Traffic Producing Website
  3. Online Entrepreneur Certification – Making Money!
  4. Online Entrepreneur Certification – Mastering Social Engagement
  5. The Business of Content – Achieving Maximum Success Through Content Creation

Levels 2 through 5 are premium level courses which are similar whereas they all have several action based items that are required to complete.

Online Entrepreneur Certification - Making Money! (Level 3)

All of these certification course are awesome and I personally find myself going back to these courses once in a while to refresh my memory. It’s what I recommend for you to do also.

The Takeaways:

  • The Level 1 Getting Started course is very thorough and has action based items
  • Levels 2 through 5 are very detailed and really give you a running start with making money online
  • All training modules have an area where you can ask specific questions about the training which typically get answered within a few minutes.

Live Training

To keep things up to date and engaging within the site, Wealthy Affiliate offers a weekly live video classes that have different topics each week. As mentioned earlier, I am the official training chief who broadcasts the classes and have been doing this inside Wealthy Affiliate for over 5 years now. You can see my picture on the About Us page of the Wealthy Affiliate website.

Each week, I come up with different relevant topics on internet marketing ranging from step-by-step processes to hot seats. The live training caters to all skill levels as I try to incorporate beginner and advanced topics within each webinar.

Now I am sure you have attended a live training session from some other company and there is usually some sort of upsell or product to buy at the end. Well, I am proud to say that there are no upsells within the live training at Wealthy Affiliate.

Live Training Available at Wealthy Affiliate

Every live training session is recorded so if you are unable to attend live, there is a recording available within 24 hours after the live broadcast.  You can also leave a star rating and review for each session which is shown to all the members.
Here are a few reviews that outline what Wealthy Affiliate members think of the Webinars.

  • WealthyAffiliate-2016-02-23-14-42-26
  • WealthyAffiliate2016-02-23-14-41-47

    The Takeaways:

    • The live training sessions are weekly and cover a range of topics
    • There is a live Q & A Session where members can ask questions and get answers live
    • Hot Seat Webinars are a way to get live website feedback for members’ sites

    Community Training

    One of the best elements that I love about Wealthy Affiliate is the community and how abundant and caring it is. There truly is a genuine need to help each other and this is highly evident in the Community training.

    Community Training at Wealthy Affiliate

    When you are a premium member of WA and have passed a certain time frame, you have the privilege of adding your own training inside the members area. This is awesome because it creates a great diverse set of learning opportunities from other members who have experience in various skills.

    For example, if you wanted to learn about how to create graphics for your blog; there is training on how to do this step-by-step.  Members then get to rate and review the training so others can see how beneficial it is. There is also a strict no spamming or selling policy within the community training and is monitored constantly for anything like that.

    The Takeaways:

    • The community training creates a huge diverse learning portal
    • As a trainer, you have the ability to earn income from your training based on the popularity of it
    • All community training course are monitored for spam and selling

    The Tools

    To run any type of business (offline or online), you need a good set of tools that deliver results and are easy to use. All the tools available inside Wealthy Affiliate are very easy to use and deliver awesome results.  Let’s go into the details of each toolset.

    WA Keyword Tool

    The WA Keyword tool gives you the ability to learn what people are searching inside Google to find information. To get your website in front of those people searching, you need to understand the audiences’ search behaviour and the WA Keyword Tool shows you just that. It will show you how many times a keyword is searched in a given month and how competitive the keyword is in terms of other sites trying to rank for the keyword.

    Wealthy Affiliate Keyword Tool

    Laying a good foundation to any online campaign starts with proper keyword research and the WA keyword tools does just that.

    Site Builder (SiteRubix)

    The SiteRubix Tool at Wealthy Affiliate

    The SiteRubix tool helps you build website in a matter of minutes. This (by far), is the coolest application I have seen when it comes to building websites.

    When installing a WordPress site, normally you have to perform a bunch of steps which can become overwhelming if you’re not familiar it. SiteRubix solves this problem by creating a simple 4 steps system:

    1. What kind of website do you want to build? (Free site)
    2. Name your website
    3. Choose a look for your website
    4. Build Your Site

    The last thing you want to do is fuss with installing WordPress and the challenges it comes with. Using SiteRubix, I’ve been able to install WordPress within 60 seconds from adding the domain name to logging into the site.

    Site Hosting

    Wealthy Affiliate has some of the best WordPress hosting around and is setting industry standards.
    Site Tools at Wealthy Affiliate
    Dealing with hosting can be such a huge hassle and WA site hosting takes all the stress away as they have made is super easy. Not only is the hosting super fast and reliable, it seamlessly integrates with SiteRubix and Site Domains (which I discuss further down) to make your website building experience a breeze.

    Here are a few features that come with WA Hosting

    • WordPress optimized servers
    • The most secure hosting anywhere
    • Full redundancy
    • Daily backups
    • 24/7 website monitoring
    • Fully managed
    • Email & forwards
    • Site Health analyzing
    • Website auto login

    Now the best part of this is that it comes with your premium membership, there is no additional cost to host your website.

    SiteBuilder and SiteHosting are available to both Starter and Premium members. Here is a quick breakdown of what you get with each.

    Starter Members = 2 Free Websites (on .siterubix.com domain)
    Premium Members = 50 Websites (25 free .siterubix.com website and 25 on your OWN Domains)

    Site Domains

    This is the latest feature that Wealthy Affiliate has added to it’s toolset and it’s a game changer! You are now able to buy your domain names right inside of WA and works seamlessly with WA Hosting and SiteRubix.

    If you have ever purchased a domain name in the past, then you can certainly relate to the many upsells or technical realities that come attached with a domain name purchase experience.  WA Site Domains takes away the domain name stress and is very competitive in terms of the features that come along with a domain purchase. Have a look at the comparison table below to see what’s included with your domain name purchase.

    The Takeaways:

    • All the tools are easy to use and don’t require much learning
    • All the website tools (domains, site builder & hosting) easily integrate with each other
    • Hosting is very powerful and provide single click login to your WordPress site

    The Support

    Here is where Wealthy Affiliate dominates the competition as the support offered inside WA is simply awesome. It doesn’t matter what level of online marketing skill you are at, there is a support channel for everyone.

    It’s extremely important to have the help you need as it will only speed up your learning potential. I admit that there are some great course available on the internet where you can learn how to become an affiliate marketer, but those course just leave you hanging and don’t offer any kind of real support beyond technical issues with their own website.

    The Wealthy Affiliate support channels are on-demand and help you with your training, your site issues or need some inspiration and advice on your progress.

    Let’s outline each of the available support channels at Wealthy Affiliate

    Live Help

    Live Chat Support at Wealthy Affiliate

    The Live support is the heart and soul of the Wealthy Affiliate community and provides everyone with instant answers to questions, personal help, coaching, and the ability to interact in real-time.  The Live Support is available 24/7 so it doesn’t matter what part of the world you reside in – the live chat support is there.

    Private Messaging

    For even more of a personal one on one experience, you can contact any Wealthy Affiliate Premium member privately to discuss your online training or projects.  You can even contact the owners Carson & Kyle for some private coaching or feedback whenever you need it.

    I find this is the BEST way to get some individualized feedback for your campaigns or just need some advice on how to get started.

    Live Q and A Sessions

    As mentioned above, WA has Live Video Classes where at the end of each lesson there are live question and answer sessions where you can get answers to your questions via a live video feed.

    Website Feedback Platform

    If you ever needed some crowdsourced feedback on your website or a specific page of your website, the Website Feedback Platform is a great way to get it. It works on a credit system where you give feedback on 2 sites in exchange for 1 site feedback request.

    Training Classrooms in Wealthy Affiliate

    Training Classrooms

    These classrooms are similar to a forum where you can ask your questions and someone within the community will provide an answer for you. These are great because you can search within these classrooms as the answer may already be available from an earlier post.

    The Takeaways:

    • There are a plethora of available support channels to help you within minutes
    • The support comes in several different formats (chat, written & video)
    • Creates a great sense of community whereas everyone is helping each other

    Success at Wealthy Affiliate

    To become successful, I think it is important to surround yourself with successful people and interact with them. Within WA, there are thousands of members who have had various levels of success ranging from learning how to build an awesome website to an increased income to the point where they quit their day job.

    Amazon Commissions Report

    This is the opportunity where you can jump in and mingle with those successful people inside of Wealthy Affiliate (including me) all while you are learning to build and run your own online business.  It is important to note that this is not a get rich quick scheme as it takes time, hard work and dedication to build your business and achieve any level of success. But if you really buckle down and work hard, your success will come.

    My Personal Conclusion of Wealthy Affiliate

    I have been a member of Wealthy Affiliate since March 2007 and have NEVER looked back. As the direct result from the training and support offered in WA, I was able to quit my day job and replace that full time income with the money from my own online business.

    My Profile at Wealthy Affiliate

      Hi Jay,

      This is the second time I came to your site and read this review. I’ve read other reviews about Wealthy Affiliates and was still on the fence until today. I just joined Wealthy Affiliates and I can’t wait to start learning how to make money online.

      Thanks again,

      Jack

      Hi Jay. Never thought that wealthy affiliate comes from a simple and humble beginning. Now it’s a great training ground for affiliate marketers, that I’m lucky to be inside too. I can personally attest to how the trainings helped me get started with affiliate marketing. I just love how it become a one stop center for everything about website marketing : hosting, buying domains, ssl – do much stuffs that make it more easy for normal people to use.

      By the way, in a huge fan of your weekly webinar buddy =)

      Great Review

      Wealthy Affiliate does seem to have everything anyone would need to have success with an online business, it is clear this program has been very good for your success the past 10 years.

      What advice could you give someone who is considering starting an online business today, what would their best strategy be as a beginner with no experience?

        Hi Jeffrey,

        My advice for anyone new or experienced is to dive into the core training at WA as it is a refreshing approach to drive people to your content and offering.

        Personally, I would say to never give up. No matter how long it takes as anyone can get started in this online marketing business and achieve various levels of success.

      I can honestly say I think this is the best review yet I’ve seen of WA. It’s so in depth and really gives a clear idea of all the benefits. I am a relatively new member myself and can really vouch for everything you’ve mentioned in this article.

      In my opinion, the training is second to none and I have learnt so much already! I’d definitely encourage anyone thinking of signing up to do so 🙂

      Hi Jay,

      I definitely agree with you on many of your points. Wealthy Affiliate is a great platform for learning to build an online business step-by-step. I have myself worked with online marketing for several years, but joining WA has given me many new layers and insights.

      I enjoy the weekly live classes with you very much, and think that anybody that joins with you as a personal mentor is lucky to get that extra benefit when joining Wealthy Affiliate.

      I’ve been a Wealthy Affiliate member for a few months now. This review is spot on. Anyone who is on the fence about trying out WA needs to see this. The training and support from the community, including yourself, are second to none. I’m curious, how did you become the live video training coach at WA?

      I always fail on my trials of making money online. I have wasted so many money on worthless online products. My dream is to make money online and I really hope that it can be a reality for me. I’m a new member of Wealthy Affiliates and I will see how that turns out for me. I’m hoping for my final destination. It was a pleasure reading your reviews. It was well written and detail

      Hey Jay,
      I joined Wealthy Affiliate about a year ago now, chose a targeted niche to affiliate market, built my website, purchased my own domain and I’m still slowly working my way through the training. I really enjoy the role and becoming more established weekly as my content increases.

      I would like to thank you for your live training, especially the way you keep them all on record as I’m over in the sunny UK, although it’s live with you it’s in the early hours of the morning over here.

      Every Sunday I watch your recorded webinars. Thanks for sharing all your ideas and methods, I am a newbie into this role yet have learnt so much. I have made my website secure and mobile friendly through your seminars and slowly implementing your other tips and tricks into my website.

      Keep up your great work,
      Simon.

      Hi Jay, Definitely the best wealthy affiliate review I read so far and very convincing.

      I hope I am the lucky person and join WA 10 years ago but overall I have nothing to blame. I found WA since 2 years ago (8th anniversary) and till then I am very satisfied with the training, tools, support has been given.
      Of course, I watch your weekly live training. This really helps earn extra insight and gaining my knowledge into the online world.

      I am happy with the positive results everytime watching the training.

      I hope more people will discover WA sooner as possible and working together their live goal.

      Wealthy Affiliate is a great community. I have seen some of your video and live webinars and have learned so much. I thought I had decent knowledge about internet marketing and SEO’s but I quickly learned I need to go back to school and take advantage of all the training offered by Wealthy Affiliate. You just can’t get this kind of training in any other online community.

      Hi Jay, I really like your review.
      I have not find bad review about WA yet.
      My questions to you;

      1) Do you only have website promoting people to join WA or you have website with other niches as well?

      2) My problem with creating WA to promote and call people to join WA so that they can make another website to call upon people for joining WA is – it looks very similar to how MLM scheme works..so to speak, seems like another scam. What’s your comment on that?

      Thanks

      Hi Jay,

      I have been around WA for about 4 months now. I was actually searching for quick money online before I have discovered WA :). I must say, it changed my life actually and I am very different now as an individual. Because thru the community I have learned to offer something back, the help I got, I hope I could give back to others. Now, although my site is not currently making any money, I am hopeful now because I found out thru WA that it takes time and work to accomplish something. And as I was researching quick ways to make money, I found out that those were scams and upsells.

      I am sharing your opinion that Wealthy Affiliate is really here to help and I thank them and you for doing this.

      Good luck !

      Hi Jay, really enjoyed reading your review on Wealthy Affiliate and the description you provided on what new members can expect after joining.

      I also like the links you have provided that take you straight to that particular subject after clicking a link. These links provide a step by step process in what new members can expect after joining and the process in making an income online.

      I also found your site easy to read and navigate, but more importantly very informative.

      I am also a Wealthy Affiliate Premium member and can’t recommend WA enough to any newcomer out there. Something you’ll never regret in joining and a legitimate business you will never have to search for again.

      P.S. Really enjoy all the training classes you provide and the contribution you make in the growth of WA.

      Cheers…

      Wow, 10 Years as a Wealthy Affiliate Member! that’s quite a proof that it is working.

      However, I wanted to ask you if during those years you ever thought of quitting? Did you have difficult moments when you seemed stuck and no money was coming in etc.?

      Have you ever ditched a niche that you started and then didn’t work out (I wonder you have started many websites during 10 years…) or have you been able to make any niche profitable?

      Sorry, about all these questions… I already know how valuable are the teachings inside Wealthy Affiliate and there is hardly anything that comes close to it around online but I still have doubts if affiliate marketing can work for me personally.
      Thank you!
      Cheers

      Wealthy Affiliate is still hands down the best program to start an online business. I had tried so many others and WA was the only one that didn’t let me down.

      The live webinars that you do have contributed a lot to the success of people in WA.

      The tools they have and the courses are unmatched anywhere else. And that’s a guarantee.

      Thanks, Jay for your helpful article on Wealthy Affiliate. We all get our start somewhere, and this is where my husband and I got bit by the internet marketing bug. The training and tools available from this platform are very helpful to the beginner. It was interesting to hear the background story and history to the creators of WA. We continue to learn and grow in this business, and I recently published my lifelong dream devotional blog, all thanks to Wealthy Affiliate!

      You have a really great site that is packed with information. Anyone would find the site useful and it gave me many ideas on what to do with mine.

      There was a great description on Wealthy Affiliate and what they offer. I would be sold on it and I like that you included the fact that they have such a supportive community.

      I missed your personal experience though. I was looking forward to it because I wanted to know the steps you took to create a really good website.

      Is it something you worked on over time, or were you able to put it all together at once?

      Did you struggle at all during your ten years?

      Hi there,

      I absolutely agree with you on this, Wealthy Affiliate is a fantastic platform if you are looking to start an online business from scratch and want a step by step approach. I worked in digital marketing for Disney some time ago so know some of the basics but after joining WA I realized how little I actually knew!

      The weekly lessons are excellent and I think mentorship is key if you really want to grow in the community.

      Great work!

      Hey Jay,
      Nice review. I think the certification courses are pretty amazing. It walks you through step by step. It is almost like it is forcing you to get the work done before you move on this the next one or at least that is how it seems for me.

      I can totally agree with you and I can really relate to you. I heard there was some improvements coming soon. With all the value already there for an unbeatable price, it is hard to imagine more improvements. What kind of improvements do you think are coming?

      This is the most detailed and well organized review of Wealthy Affiliate that I have ever seen. I know that all good things come in time with consistent hard work, but can you share about how long it took you to start earning money with affiliate marketing? I am actually enjoying the process of writing and building my first site, but I still wonder how long the wait is for that first sale 🙂

      Hi Jay,
      First of all congratulations on this year being your 10th with what I feel is the absolute best program on the Internet that will teach a person how to grow a legit online business in Wealthy Affiliate.

      Your review of WA was the most in-depth, instructional, concise and informative that I have seen coming from anyone that I have read.

      You literally walked the person by the hand as he/she read the article and thoroughly explained all aspects of what WA is about.

      The fact that concluding each section you provided “takeaways” which summed up all the positive aspects of WA only enhanced each facet of this program.

      The fact that WA continues to evolve even during the 2+ years that I have been a member shows that Kyle, Carson and even you Jay through your live weekly training sessions keep an ear to the ground in understanding how online marketing continues to evolve.

      I could not even fathom joining a similar program online that also promotes a person learning how to run his/her own business.

      It would be like comparing a Porsche to a Volkswagen. One, (WA) is the real deal while the other. . .

      Finally I noticed the fact, in keeping with your philosophy that you try to teach in the live-training; no mind distracting Google ads littering your WA review.

      It made it so much easier to really dig into your content without the possibility of getting distracted by some ad marketing something completely unrelated to the topic subject. Thank you!!

      Jeff

      Thank you for the review! They have their own keyword tool! That is awesome! I didn’t realize how much money was actually put in to domain names like protection and email accounts. I thought it was just the tiny amount involved when first purchased. I never actually saw if it was included. Thank you very much!

      Hey Jay…!

      I remember when I first signed up with Wealthy Affiliate little over a year ago.

      I joined really knowing nothing about affiliate marketing and how to go about it. In fact, I had to look up the true meaning of affiliate… lol.

      I had done lots of researching over the years and hesitated joining anything because some of my friends were scammed.

      I’ve been with Wealthy Affiliate now for just a little over a year now and I’m amazed at how much knowledge and how comfortable I am doing things on my site… which I started from scratch here. Wow… you should see it now!! The training is amazing and I do go over them more than once. Lots of fun to learn here! Here we get honesty, integrity… support, etc!!

      Thanks to you, Kyle, Carson and the members I’m proud of what I have accomplished so far. It’s been hard work but all worth it!

      The best part, I’m able to help others with confidence!

      Thanks so much for your review!!

      I’ve been with Wealthy Affiliate since August 2016 and enjoying it very much! When I first joined I felt like I traveled to another planet. I knew nothing about affiliate marketing. But I was willing to learn as I looked all over to find ways to make money online. All I found were scams. I was also unsure about WA but I read all the good reviews and gave it a shot. I felt like I made a good choice!

      Hello Jay. What a great review. I have been a WA member since Nov 2016 and I have loved every minute of the training and support while building my affiliate website. When I first signed up I was immediately impressed with the amount of time that was taken for planning, organising and implementing the training let alone the speed and accuracy of the SiteRubix and integrated WordPress platform in terms of performance and speed.
      Amazing! Still, I am learning new stuff every day. I think the thing I love the most is the way in which the training program and support systems, including the member’s community, instils confidence in you and thereby increases belief in yourself. This I think was probably the most important factor for an affiliate virgin like myself (at least back in Nov 2016, but not anymore) – so if I can do it, anybody really can do this, especially in Wealthy Affiliate 🙂

      p:s I have watched several of your recorded webinars and they are awesome!

      This is very well done. Obviously you have been doing this for a long time and I am just starting. I do not have anything to change. I saved the site so I can learn from your site.

      The blogs helped with SEO traffic. I read something on your blog that I believe it talked about in the videos but I did not catch the importance of it. Thanks

      Looking good Jay!
      I’ve always loved your content, especially your weekly live training and I try my best not to miss even one lesson. They are all very impactful and I’ve managed to rank almost all my pages on top.

      Really appreciate all the time and effort you’ve put into teaching us and I have to admit, WA’s SSL feature is really giving my site positive results. It’s ranking much easier than before too! Out of curiosity though, how long did it take for your site to really take off when you first built it?

      Hi Jay

      I’m really thankful for wealthy affiliate, if it wasn’t for it, I don’t think that I would where I am today.

      This review will help a lot of people, just like it helped me…I was scammed so many times until I bumped into Kyle’s site.

      Since that day I never looked back, thanks for your training too…it also played a major role in my success.

      Thanks.

      Hi Jay,

      It’s so nice reading this review on Wealthy Affiliate. I like the simple and easy to understand language that you use to explain your points.

      I’ve watched your training videos and I’m still working on my website but I am not realising any returns yet. I wonder what I’m not doing right and I don’t want to give up. One of the major challenges I have is that the free starter registration isn’t free anymore in my country. This makes my website a little bit irrelevant…I think.

      Thanks for your review and training I enjoy them a lot.

      Blessings

      Paul.

      Hi Jay!

      Wealthy Affiliate is really the place to be if you want to be successful online.

      I remember it was a bit overwhelming when I first joined, but when you start to organize all the info of the training in your head and take action, it all starts to make sense.

      This is an amazing review of what’s actually the community, nothing else needs to be said.

      I’m also a fan of your weekly live videos, Jay. I can’t always watch them live, since I’m on a far-away time zone, but I know where to find them 😉

      Thanks for your work and motivation!

      Jay I love your review of Wealthy Affiliate. I have recently joined and it has genuinely been a revelation for me. What I love is the level of support and the feel of community between everyone, from beginners to experts.

      I think the important thing is you can try it out for free, or you can pay for the premium membership monthly and cancel if you feel like you aren’t getting anything out of it – I can almost guarantee that anyone who does sign up won’t find this though. It is a fantastic resource.

      Hi Jay,
      I have been a member of WA only since January but it has changed everything for me. I have long been searching for something of this nature, and WA has delivered. The community there is top-notch, and you always find quick help when you need it. I would recommend it to anyone… even with no experience, it has opened my eyes to the world of online money-making! It’s so much easier than anyone thinks. I love being able to work right from my laptop.

      Hi Jay, I just wanted to say thanks for laying it all out like this. There’s a lot of conflicting information online and so it’s good to get solid and detailed information before joining. (even if it’s free to join!)

      I think the fact you’ve been a Wealthy Affiliate member for 10 years says a lot! You must be getting results in your own online businesses to still be with them after all this time.

      Wealthy Affiliate might be ideal for me because I’m not scared of hard work, I like learning new things and I realise that buiding an income generating website can take time. I’m excited to get started and I’ll try not to ask you too many questions as I work my way through the courses! Thanks again, Simon.

I cant believe the amount of training I’ve received and how much I learn every time I log in. You, Kyle and Carson really do an awesome job with the whole platform. I highly recommend Wealthy affiliate to anyone interested in starting their own online business, no matter what their skill level is. Thank you

      Wow this the best Wealthy Affiliate review I have seen soo far and I have seen quite a few. Already being a member of Wealthy Affilite myself I can only agree with what you are saying. What you get at Wealthy Affiliate you won’t find anywhere else (at least not at this price) so all you need to succeed is to be dedicated, willing to work and most importantly you need to believe in what you are doing?
      This is where I struggle right now. Any tips on how to keep motivated and how to find the right mindset to success?

      Hi Jay,

      I’ve been a Wealthy Affiliate member for 5 months now, and I have to say it has been GREAT. I came in as a total noob and I have learned tons with the WA courses AND your weekly live sessions.

      Every now and then I have doubts of the things I’m doing but as you said the community has always been a great help. Be it on the live chat or on questions blogged.

      I have 0 regrets on joining WA and would recommend it to anyone who is wondering if they should join.

      Thanks for everything,

      Luis

      Hi there. It’s a pleasure to read your Wealthy Affiliate Review.
      I’m allergic to hyped up reviews online, so when I read this one I was able to relax and enjoy the info and the story behind WA.
      Back in the day , that keyword list Kyle and Carson used to produce would have been a god send to anyone who had a clue what to do with it.
      The kw tools have come a long way and so have all you guys involved in WA.
      Thanks for the awesome work. J

      I love the material covered in this website. In fact, I have been very diligent in trying to get my website up and going and I plan to use your website as a tool. I have to say that if I wasn’t already a wealthy affiliate premium member, your website would have convinced me to give it a try. The content provided was engaging. The theme itself was simple with an easy flow and easy to read without getting distracted. Thank you for the insight on your personal experience. It was very motivating.

      Hello Jay,

      I am very impressed with your review of Wealthy Affiliate. I have read many online reviews of many ways to make money online. In a great many of these you either get wild claims about making a fortune or a superficial review that makes you wonder if the reviewer has the slightest idea of what they are talking about. I must say your review is the exception. You obviously have great knowledge of Wealthy Affiliate and explain the program in great detail without hype. I appreciate the excellent information.

      Very refreshing!

      Thanks,

      Hey there Jay,
      I am amazed by this updated review of the Wealthy Affiliate program. I must say I don’t find a single con about WA. I was still feeling a bit skeptical about joining the program, but now that I know more in depth about the founders and the community I’m definitely giving it a shot. I hope WA helps me reach the success I want for my online business. Thanks for sharing this!

I love the fact that you included Kyle and Carson’s story in the beginning and made them sound like real people, because it truly does appear that they care about helping people learn and be successful online. I look forward to seeing you in some of the live video trainings!

      Hi, Jay,
      This is a very thorough review of the Wealthy Affiliate program and a must read for everyone interested in starting an online business or wanting to learn about website design.

      I am in my 2nd year at Wealthy Affiliate and began my studies here as a very “green” newbie. My progress has been constant and grows at a very comfortable pace that I can set for myself.

      I have attended many of your webinars and will continue to do so. I learn so much from them and the rare one that I cannot attend is always available in recorded version shortly afterward.

      In addition, the easy-to-follow training videos that Kyle and Carson produce are another reason for keeping everyone here focused and committed to learning.

      The ” Live Chat ” forum, the possibility to have your questions answered almost instantly, the Keyword Tool and the Bootcamp all make the Wealthy Affiliate “community” a pleasure and joy to belong to.

      Can’t say enough about this dedicated and helpful community. Thanks!

      Paul

        Hi Jay, please append my earlier post with the continuation below. Little fast on the submit button there.

        After last Christmas I first got serious about doing successful business online, had no idea how I would get there. I watched a free “get rich quick webinar” which left me wary. Fortunately, in reading reviews about that provider along with doing other research I did, I stumbled upon WA. While only having been here a short time, like you I haven’t looked back.

        Kudos to everyone in the WA community!!

      An awesome Review of Wealthy Affiliate.
      You have gone through everything that Wealthy Affiliate offers, and your own personal story. I might just jump on board, and try things out.
      Like like of other people online, i have lost money to scammers, but Wealthy Affiliate looks like ‘the real deal’.
      Cheers
