THANKS FOR SWINGING BY TO MY WEALTHY AFFILIATE REVIEW!
Change can be scary.
I know because I was caught up in the world of Warrior Forum and watched people get ‘cyberbullied’ because they asked ‘newbie’ questions or gave honest opinions about things.
But I want you to take a moment and think about the last time you had a positive experience inside the Warrior Forum? Or how about a comparison of positive experiences with negative experiences within the forum. If you have experienced or even witnessed an abusive post within there, then that is one too many. Why would you want to be part of something that gives out bad learning mojo?
Let me ask you this..
Have you ever made any money from any of the Warrior Special Offers (WSO) you’ve purchased in the past?
Or how much money have you spent to earn your first dollar?
In my opinion, you shouldn’t have to purchase training everytime you need it nor should you have to rely on fancy pants sales letters to determine if the ‘product’ is any good. And that is what Affiliate Resources is about.. letting you see the truth of these WSO Scams.
With Wealthy Affiliate, you have full access to all the training 24/7 and have access to the awesome community in the forms of chat, private messages or classrooms which is a modern update to the antiquated forum. There is no upsells, no ads and no cyberbulling within Wealthy Affiliate. The training comes in several formats including full certification courses, live training and video based training.
Can you get that inside Warrior Forum? Not even close.
A BRIEF HISTORY OF WEALTHY AFFILIATE
Wealthy Affiliate started in 2005 as a simple keyword list membership website. Quickly the owners Kyle and Carson (who have been successful affiliates since 2002) of British Columbia Canada learned that there not only was a huge demand for these lists, but also training on how to use them.
That same year, they started a membership forum for people to access the training and support. As time went by, more and more features within Wealthy Affiliate were added and people came in masses for the training and support.
Today, Wealthy Affiliate has a ton of awesome features that include keyword research tool, website builder and hosting. But before I get into the details of all the tools and features, let’s look at the Pros and Cons.
THE PROS OF WEALTHY AFFILIATE
- Up to Date Training: All the training inside Wealthy Affiliate is top notch and always being updated. It is very easy to follow and has discussion areas for any questions that may arise.
- Awesome Community Support: I am blown away at how amazing the support system is. There are several ways to get help within Wealthy Affiliate; live chat, private messaging, discussions and live Q & A sessions.
- Beginner Friendly: There is no such thing as a dumb question inside WA and there are several beginner task based training courses.
- Website Hosting Included: There is no need to run out and buy web hosting as this is included. Unlimited sites for premium and 2 sites for starter accounts.
Spam Free Environment: Unlike Warrior Forum, WA offers a welcoming training environment that doesn’t tolerate any negative behaviour.
Success Stories: If you need some inspiration, WA has a great section which shows people attaining success on many different levels ranging from making their first website to replacing their job income with online marketing.
THE CONS OF WEALTHY AFFILIATE
- None: Wealthy Affiliate is the most comprehensive simple training community available
THE TRAINING AND TOOLS AVAILABLE
The first moment you enter Wealthy Affiliate, the first level of training is placed in front of you. The Online Entrepreneur Certification – Getting Started (Level 1) is a 10 lesson course that walks you through the entire online business process for long term income. Regardless of your experience level, I recommend you jump into this training as it creates a great mindset for your online business journey.
There are 4 levels of the Online Entrepreneur Certification courses which are:
- Getting Started (Level 1)
- Building Your Own Traffic Producing Website (Level 2)
- Making Money! (Level 3)
- Mastering Social Engagement (Level 4)
Each of the course consist of 10 lessons, so there are a total of 40 Lessons within the Certification courses alone. There are no shiny objects, no affiliate links and no upsells within the training which is a nice change from what you may be used to within the Warrior Forum.
LIVE VIDEO CLASSES (WABINARS)
Each week, there is a live 60 minute training event called a WAbinar. That’s right.. WAbinar. Love the WA branding part of it! A new topic is delivered each week and at the end of the WAbinars, there is a live Q & A Session where you can ask the presenter questions related to that nights presentation. Also a nice feature within the WAbinars is that there are no upsells, affiliate links etc. at the end of the presentation. Certainly a nice change from what you’ve probably experienced in the past.
Here are a few reviews that outline what Wealthy Affiliate members think of the WAbinars.
If you miss the live training, no problem as they are recorded and posted within the members area so you can access them at any time.
THE TOOLS AND SERVICES
In my opinion, there are 4 main elements to an online business:
- Niche & Research Research
- Website Creation
- Website Hosting
- Content Creation
Wealthy Affiliate has tools and service that help you with all 4 elements and are included within your members area.
1) Niche & Research Research – There is a keyword and competition research tool that helps you discover niches, search volume and additional keyword ideas.
2) Website Creation – WordPress Express is a website building platform that creates your website in 3 clicks. Truly awesome!
3) Website Hosting – Unlimited website (cloud) hosting is included within your membership thus makes the website building process seamless. The hosting is stable and using state of the art technology.
4) Content Creation – Rapid Writer is a place where you can write and author your content while watching your targeted keyword density.
HOW MUCH DOES WEALTHY AFFILIATE COST?
There are 2 membership options within Wealthy Affiliate.
- Starter Membership: $0
- Premium Membership: $47 per month or $359 per year
I urge you to check out the Starter Membership as it gives you full access to everything offered inside Wealthy Affiliate. After 7 days, Your ability to Ask Questions and get live chat support ends but all the other features are still available.
COMPARING STARTER TO PREMIUM
Below is a comparison chart to see what is offered within the Starter membership and what you can get if you go Premium.
As you can see, the premium membership is essentially all you need to start your grow your online business. I challenge you to compare this with Warrior Forum and tell me that WF is better. Seriously, go ahead and let me know in the comments below.
MY PERSONAL CONCLUSION
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 works. The training, tools and support offered inside the premium membership is all you need to get your online business going. It doesn’t matter if you’re interested in affiliate marketing, SEO, local marketing or promoting your existing website or business – Wealthy Affiliate will help you get you to YOUR next level.
I AM INSIDE WEALTHY AFFILIATE READY TO HELP YOU..
When you create your Starter account, you’re going to get a message from me inside your personal profile welcoming you to the community. Be sure to send me a reply with any questions you may have, because I want to ensure you don’t run into any snags while you’re learning.
As an incentive to join Premium, if you upgrade your account to Premium I am going to offer you a 59% discount of your first month. This ends up being only $19 for your first month of being a premium member of Wealthy Affiliate.
Compare that with how many WSO scams you may have purchased in a month!
