My Wealthy Affiliate Review – A Member for 15 Years and Counting

Wareview Amazonearnings

~ My Personal Success Story ~

Throughout my 15 years at Wealthy Affiliate, 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.

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 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

Wareview Kyleandcarson

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 15 years and has more tools, training and support resources than any other place online.

The Takeaways:

  • Wealthy Affiliate has been around for over 15 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

Wareview Level1Tasks

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.

Wareview Level3Training

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 7 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.

Wareview Livetraining

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.

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.

Wareview Communitytraining

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)

Wealthy Affiliate Review - Site Builder

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 Review - Siterubix

Wealthy Affiliate has some of the best WordPress hosting around and is setting industry standards.

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.

Wealthy Affiliate Review - Site Domains

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

Wealthy Affiliate Review - Live Help

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.

Wealthy Affiliate Review - Website Feedback Platform
Wealthy Affiliate Review - Classrooms

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.

Wareview Amazonearnings

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.

Wealthy Affiliate Review - Magistudios Profile

  1. Thanks for the thorough review of Wealthy Affiliate. I have joined wealthy affiliate for a year and I have been making a 4-figure income now. The training, tools, and support are all fantastic. I wish I had found Wealthy Affiliate earlier as I was scammed by other programs and wasted a lot of time. Wealthy Affiliate guides me in the right direction. It simply works.

  2. Wealthy affiliate is a great place to learn about affiliate marketing and other kinds of marketing. The week webinars are great. They bring some new ideas to help keep the site up to date in 2020

  3. Hi Jay,

    Thank you for the remarkable inspiring program and diversify platforms introduced by Wealthy Affiliate catered to the need generating business house under one roof.

    (Noted: tried communicate with Kyle personal coach)

    Honestly, I am a little sceptical was still on the fence until today. Thinking what will I be one day. Will I be successful with an online business? After viewing the first training and continue the next lesson “Go Premium”.

    I realised the past 5 years I missed all those training and guidance “Get started”. I had these feelings and thoughts I might not make it in achieving my dreams with the sense of loss of direction.

    Always wanted to do affiliate business (online business) and own an entrepreneur business locally and international. I been searching for the right application, site even hosting and so on that will up lift my goals. Eventually it did not what I expected. After going through the first training course it had given an opening for me an opportunity to progress and succeed.

    What hindrance back of my mind is continues monthly membership plan. Hoping in the first month can foresee some income generated. A small step of achievement to pay for monthly plan.

    I know it is not easy and a long way to go, hard work and dedication to build a business and achieve any level of success. But if I really buckle down and seriously think hard, my success will come.

    I am not good in writing (copy writing) wish to get training and support offered in Wealthy Affiliate. It will come a time able to quit my day job and replace that full time income with the money from my own online business. I have a lot to catch up to “Get Started”.

    Thank you very much for all the assistance you and your team had provided.

    Best wishes & stay healthy.

    Yours truly,

  4. 100 % Right with your review Jay but for those of you who haven’t experienced WA there’s 1 incredibly part of the platform that You cannot be without. Jay provides a weekly webinar that is packed full of essential tools and learning material that is a must. It’s very detailed in every aspect of Affiliate marketing that you will need to become a successful Entrepreneur. These webinars are also on the WA platform to refer to so you can look at all of these at your leisure if you don’t get chance to see them live. Thank you Jay for your wealth of knowledge and superb teaching skills.

  5. I started on Wealthy Affiliate as a complete beginner and I didn’t even know what affiliate marketing means. Since then I’ve learned to make a full-time income online, traveled around the world and enjoyed the laptop lifestyle. Wealthy Affiliate literally changed my life.

  6. Thanks for an excellent review Jay! This pretty much sums up everything about Wealthy Affiliate. It’s an excellent way of learning affiliate marketing and getting support from a great community.

  7. Hi Jay,
    Thank your for the awesome review. I just started WA and I am learning so much. I know that with time I will gain the expertise you and so many others so graciously provide everyone else in the community.

    I think that is the best part or WA. All the support and open abundance of knowledge that is willing to be shared.

    In so many industries everything is kept a secret because no one else wants you to succeed or surpass them. It is not like that st WA at all.

    Again, thank you.
    Best wishes,

  8. Hi Jay!

    Thanks for the review! I am a WA premium member and I enjoy the training which is a gold mine for the online marketers and all others that would like to learn about online and affiliate marketing in total. The engagement, support, shared knowledge, platforms, the volume and quality of the lessons, classrooms, and training is outstanding. Along with the great support. I am glad to be part of such an online community!

    Btw, thanks for your weekly lessons and live training!

    Best regards,

  9. 11 years? permit me to call you my senior colleague 

    Wealthy affiliate is community that teach people how to succeed in online marketing business they have unbeatable record in helping beginner reach their target I`m one of the thousands they have help to reach their goal I celebrate my one year anniversary with them last year November.

  10. Jay, I am in the third year of my Wealthy Affiliate (WA) membership.    I view the money that I have spent on my  membership as a worthwhile investment into my business.   I have learned so much about the retail industry since joining Wealthy Affiliate, that I became inspired to open a brick and mortar shop last fall.   The shop compliments my other business activities.   

    Last weekend, I was able to start watching your the series that you created a year ago about getting local businesses ranked on Google.   You did a great job walking us through what needs to be done.   Unfortunately, I have a type of business that Google wants to verify by sending me a post card and me entering some code in.    So, I can’t talk about how my rankings on Google has improved yet.    

    When you first did this series,  it was not really applicable at the time.  So, I am extremely appreciative that the live webinars that you teach are recorded and made available for people that missed it or that want to watch it again.  

    For those people that want to build an online affiliate marketing business or that want to market their own store, I will say this:  Jay’s does a great job describing WA above.   WA is a great program.   You would be very fortunate to join and have Jay as your mentor.   He is extremely knowledgeable and a great trainer.  It helps that he has a great sense of humor.   It make the learning process a little less daunting.      

    Best wishes.      

  11. Thanks for the amazing article and review for Wealthy affiliate (WA), you really covered it all in details . i’m WA member and would say one of the most important points you covered very good is the training ,as when i started i did not have any idea about how to build a website and how to make profit from it . and after few days i start feeling confidant that’s its very easy and helped me a lot

  12. Wow, Jay, This is an awesome post. You cover just about everything.  WA is exactly how you have described it.  Top notch, always improving and the community is so helpful and always there, somewhere in the world, to help.  And, who can beat the price of a Premium Membership, (especially on Black Friday) with so much to offer?

    The only question I would have is… Where does one go to find the will to continue?  The answer is, I think, inside us.  What are your thoughts?  What keeps you going?


  13. Hi Jay, I always like to read about this fabulous company and his successful members.

    I’m a member for almost two years now and never regretted it a moment. Of course, there are some moments when things look hard but isn’t this in every job?

    I have learned so much from this platform and from you in person as well, I often see your webinars, some live some when I need information.

    To everyone reading this, I totally recommend at least trying this platform if you are interested to invest your time in making money online.

    Have a great time, Stefan 🙂

  14. Hi Jay,

    Glad to have stumbled on your site while I was doing some research on affiliate marketing! I have been with Wealthy Affiliate for about a year now, and can see that what I learnt and put into use is working! I’m getting a good stream of organic traffic coming to my site. Oh and I love all your weekly webinars, they are a great source of inspiration to me, always looking forward to learning from you. 

    Thanks for sharing all your expertise so freely within WA. See you!

  15. Hello Jay,

    As a beginner to Affiliate Marketing and currently training at Wealthy Affiliate your review established a level of validation for me. Having come from a background minus all forms of affiliate marketing, zero experience, your review created a sense of comfort validating the affiliate program (Wealthy Affiliate) I chose to participate in to be a good one!

    Thank you for that!

    If I may, I’d like to ask a couple questions. Having no experience at all within the affiliate industry and entering into Wealthy Affiliate’s affiliate program, what is your opinion on how I should approach or what is the best way to maneuver through the wealth of training and materials?

    Also, as a newbie to affiliate marketing and to Wealthy Affiliate, what would you say is the #1 problem newbies in common have struggled with within Wealthy Affiliate Training Programs?

    I’m excited to move through the training at Wealthy Affiliate, and very interested in your response!

    Great Review!


  16. Hi Jay

    Just came across your site and man have you written a great review

    I have been looking for so long to find a platform that has everything I need and this place looks so great

    you have explained all the points of Wealthy Affiliate and what is offered and it is amazing.

    I am going to join for free to see what’s going on inside but I feel I am going to buy premium as I really want to build a successful future online for myself and my family and you have sold me for sure

    Thanks and I’ll see you on the inside I hope

  17. Wow 11 years that is such a long time, a lot must have been achieved during this period I’m guessing you’re one of the pioneer members. joining wealthy affiliate has been great for me so far within a month I’ve learnt a lot and I have started building my site. there’s still a lot to learn and action to take, I hope I’m consistent enough to make this a great success.

  18. Jay,

    I’ve been in your online training and learned a lot. Your review of WA is very detailed and covers all the bases. I dropped out last year for a while and have since rejoined due to the enormous tools and learning that can be achieved. I am with you on promoting WA to the world. 

    I haven’t found anyone that doesn’t want everyone to succeed and produce the best selling WEB site around. 

    I look forward to attending more of your online training sessions.

    Winslow White

  19. Wait wait wait. Other websites charge you that much extra for privacy protection? I thought that that was just a given in the system. Did I take it for granted along with the email accounts stuff?…I guess I never really gave the domain price much comparative thought when I went into wealthy affiliate. 

  20. Hi Jay, I’ve been a Wealthy Affiliate premium member for little over 12 months now. It is one of the best decisions I ever made. The training has just been fantastic and your weekly live classses are awesome. I usually need to replay them a few days after because they’re on at midday on Saturday in my part of the world and the kids always want to be out and about. That said, depending on where we are sometimes I can catch it live.

    With regards to members creating their own training, I see some fabulous training. I’ve never created any myself, and I’m wondering how I do that? I don’t consider myself an expert in anything online though so I’m not sure if I could create training? My background is more in motivational psychology and wondering if creating some training in this area might be beneficial to the community? I’d appreciate your thoughts. And thanks for being an awesome trainer.

  21. Hi Jay, thanks for your own contribution on the wealthy affiliate platform, You are hardworking and your live classes trainings are pure work of genius, I am just a newbie on the WA yet and I am enjoying every bit of the tutorials and trainings? Can ordinary members create training also, aside 

  22. Hello Jay, I like to greet you again! Look, I have several questions, to tell you that in the marketing business, I have been trying to make an income for 7 years. I am a member of several marketing platforms, such as: JVZoo, Clickbank, Clicksure, Clickbetter , Hotmark, Alibaba and Amazon. But I did not understand the mechanics of how to link the banners, the promotional emails, but now, I know how this whole thing works. I want to tell you everything I know and I have been learning about Affiliate Marketing, and about this, I want you to locate me at what level I am, please, okay?

    I do not have products, I want to apply the little that is here and go slowly. Te us also the payment per click, but here you have to pay for each product that is sold or you are selling.

    What I am interested in now is to focus on training, above all, to know how to configure my website well (I already did one and I did not like the erase and I did another one), but now, I just want to please that you locate me well in this Theme, to have content and Where do I get content for my website ?, the niche is: Affiliate Marketing.

    I hope your answers soon and guide me, please. I am a member of rich affiliates, I have been a month and a half and I am a Premium member. Okay? Where do I find you?

    Thanks and see you soon, best regards, your Friend:

  23. Hi Jay,
    This whole affiliate marketing is new to me. I stumbled upon another company and as a big researcher, I looked into said company and happened to incidentally find WA. As I continue to research, I keep running into different reviews such as yours. As many have mentioned, by far yours is so much more detailed and less feeling of pressuring you into joining.

    I currently work full time Mon-Fri 8-5 and a full-time mommy to 3 as well. I have a few questions:
    1) How much time will I require per day/week to even see any results?
    2) I noticed you don’t mention joining premium (which many of the previous sites I came upon kept constantly pointing out). Is it possible to even make any kind of money just by joining for free, or is it necessary to join premium?
    3) I am still on the fence about joining, what is something that would absolutely make me take the leap?

    Thank you for your time.

  24. Hey Jay
    I want to learn affiliate marketing and earning money from it. I am totally blank what can I do? Because don’t have a website or blog even any list of emails. How can I start now, please assist me as soon as possible.

  25. You’ve definitely made quite the journey with WA! I’m glad I found WA because it was completely straight forward on how to make money online, not some fad with crazy upsells and promises.

    What I liked most about this review was that you showed real RESULTS. WA can replace a full time income and release you from that 9 to 5 you dread. But you’re also blunt about it taking real work, because, of course, this is a business!

    • Hi Adriana,

      Yes, it’s the little costs that can add up as you tend to forget about them until you see how much money you’ve spent.

      With WA, you have everything you need to get started.
      Thanks for your comment!

  26. It has been great to follow your success on football snack helmets and other case studies about how to build websites with wealthy affiliate.
    My biggest problem with websites is how much time it takes to learn all this stuff like SEO, content writing, wordpress and social media.
    What is your best advice for someone (me) who is snowed under by the amount of training required to do this well?
    Seriously, Janelle.

  27. Hi there,
    Well done on an awesome detailed and thorough review of Wealthy Affiliate.
    You are living proof that this business works and as you write, that 10 years later this business is still profitable….what other endorsement do we need.
    Thanks again and best wishes for the next ten
    Cheers…..Phil Browne

  28. I was looking for the best affiliate marketing platform on the web and someone introduced this website to me. He also warned me to be aware of information overload.

    Is it true that the information there can be at times overwhelming?

    I have seen review of other affiliate marketing coaching programs and the features wealthy affiliate offersmlre resources at cheap prices.

    But the issue that holds me back from joining is the overload and success guarantee. How sure are you that I will get to earn money up to a full time income with Wealthy Affiliate? Also, how can I solve the overload barrier?

    Looking forward to your answer before joining.


  29. Hey Jay, thank you for your testimony and personal review of Wealthy Affiliate. It’s always better to have someone on the inside giving the review instead of someone on the outside looking in. Now that I have a clearer idea of Wealthy Affiliate I might just give the free starter membership a try….thank you Jay for your insight.

  30. Hi Jay,

    After reading your Wealthy Affiliates review I had to sign up to see what this is all about. I’m looking forward to the training! I can’t wait to get started and build my first website! Thanks agin for the awesome review on Wealthy Affiliates Jay. I’m also looking forward to your training as well.


  31. Hi Jay, great WA review, on a great looking, clean site! All the info a person needs to make a educated decision as to weather WA is worth the time is right here. I also want to commend you on your awesome Friday evening webinars! Always great advice,I learn a lot of good stuff every week! A great addition to the training already available within WA. Thanks for all you do!

    • Hi TD,

      I am actually happy you made mistakes because it is such a great way to learn!
      My own mistakes have taught me to stick with the core metrics of SEO and to avoid the shiny objects.

      • Hi Karin,

        Thanks for your thoughts!
        You mentioned something that I feel is important for any form of success.
        It’s a willing to learn – such a great asset to have when it comes to starting an online venture!

  32. Hi Jay.

    I am a big fan of your trainings, and I have often thought about signing up for a hot seat, but I haven’t got around to it yet. Maybe I’ll take a deep breath sometime in the nearest future and actually do it.

    Your website is so great, and you make it all seem so simple, which it is when you know how to do it, and what better place to learn, than right here at WA?
    I will definitely be coming back to it for inspiration.

    Hopefully I will achieve the same level of success that you have.


  33. Great review on Wealthy Affiliate. I’m a current member of wealthy affiliate. I’ve been a member for about two months so I’m relatively still new to the online world. I like the well detail article which you explain precisely. You have been a member for ten years and that’s impressive. You’re one of the real people that live successfully through the help of wealthy affiliate. I hope to be successful too. I certainly would encourage others to be a member

    • Hi Laurie,

      Before starting a website, you need to learn the fundamentals of running an online business.
      When you sign up to WA and have access to the free starter account, you will start the level 1 training which walks you through all of these fundamentals.

      This training will also guide you on creating a website including a platform that’ll help you create one.

      Go ahead and get your starter account rolling at WA as there is no cost and you don’t need to enter any credit card details.

  34. What a fantastic review

    I have just completed my first month as a premium member on WA and I am loving the progress I have been making.

    Reading experiences like yours, ten years down the line give me a real buzz, as you are living proof of what can be achieved through Wealthy Affiliate.

    I only hope I can have something like the success that you have!

    • Hi Nicu,

      Great to hear that you’ve joined WA and I really appreciate that you have learned that hard work is what makes a good online business work and not some quick tool or method.

        • 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!!

  35. This is yet another convincing and thorough review of the Wealthy Affiliate online program.

    I am actually a premium member, recently having joined up. However I started building my own affiliate marketing blog sights over a year ago Boy did I make a lot of mistakes. Mistakes I would not have made had I come across and joined WA early on.

    Luckily I did find WA a few months ago and started the free training. I learned a lot about what I had been doing wrong. I made some changes to my sites and saw some impressive results in about a month.

    Anybody reading this and thinking about joining WA, do it. You will not disappointed.

  36. Hi Jay,
    Thanks for this in-depth review.You have just clarified the benefits of registering my domain with WA compared with other registrars.

    Personally, your live case study has helped me redefined how I perceive affiliate business or marketing, business building. Your passion towards this topic is catching. I bet you have transfered this to me. You have been really helpful.

    I have been in online business for 3 years now and I have done several courses from the best in the industry, but i tell you WA is the best of them all interms of being helpful for the newbies and those that have been in this business for a while. it’s basically incomparable.

    Thanks Jay for your help.

  37. Hi Jay, I personally am a member from WA and have known about WA through your website!

    I feel your review on WA is really accurate and I totally agree with your point of view.

    Anyways, I am a little confused on whether I should start with bootcamp or certification. What are your views on that? Thank you!

  38. Hi Jay
    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’.

  39. Hi Jay, I love this review.

    I am already sold on Wealthy Affiliate; have been a premium member since January 2017 and have attended several of your weekly training sessions.

    Every point you make is so true. F

  40. 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!


  41. Hey There,
    Great post about WA. I myself have recently started and I must say that I agree with everything you are saying. 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!

    • Hey Luis,

      I think the WA live chat is such a great motivator as you never know who will be in there helping folks out. In fact, I do know that the co-founders are in chat on a daily basis!

      • Hello A Habil,

        1) Yes, I have other niche website that are not related to online marketing. This is one of them: https://footballsnackhelmets.com/
        It is the result of a live case study that I did inside of WA.

        2) MLM typically have several tiers and WA does not do this.
        I think that it is best to start with something that isn’t related to make money online as you want to get a good grasp on the core concepts of online business.

  42. 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!

  43. 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!



  44. 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.

  45. 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

  46. 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,


  47. 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?

  48. What an amazing review. I found your review is full of wonderful and helpful tips with an inspiration and motivation part for a new member of wealthy affiliate community like me. I hope I could reach all the 10 yrs in wealthy affiliate community and some remarkable training like you did. Also a successful Online Business for me in the future. You are such an inspiration. Thank you for sharing.

  49. Hi Jay I just wanted to say I love your website and frame work. It was very informative, and interesting to read. Joining Wealthy affiliate was the best decision I made. 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

  50. 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.
