Wealthy Affiliate Review 2018.
Company: Wealthy Affiliate.
Owners: Kyle & Carson, (since 2005).
Cost: $0 to check it out. No credit card required.
Overall Verdict: I feel that practically anyone could benefit from the training available here. An all-in-one training platform, that shows you how you can make money online from scratch – even if you’re a complete newbie.
I was a complete beginner with zero technical knowledge when I joined this community.
It’s not a get-rich-scheme and does require real work and dedication. But they do provide you with all the knowledge you need to make money online in the long term.
You can access a 10-part training course right away and check out the whole platform for free, with their starter membership.
You don’t even need any credit card, (like so many “free trials,” out there….). Only your name and your email.
By accessing their free training, you can fully understand what the platform has to offer, without committing to anything at all.
This is a fantastic opportunity for anyone who wants to learn how to make money online from scratch; with step by step training & support.
Whether it’s a small part-time income you’re after, or you’re looking to eventually make a full time income online; this training platform can give you the knowledge and tools you need.
The knowledge and skills that I have gained, as a direct result of joining this community, has been life changing for me.
When I first came across Wealthy Affiliate, I thought it was a training program that mainly just taught affiliate marketing.
However, Wealthy Affiliate actually provides much more than this.
There is a mass amount of extensive training available to members, (which is added to weekly & updated) and a very large and helpful community.
As soon as you get inside, you can access a whole bunch of training immediately and it’s very much step-by-step and action based.
You also get two free WordPress websites as a starter member, that you can keep indefinitely, whether you finish the course or not.
You then learn how you can profit from your website, primarily from affiliate marketing, (although, you can learn many ways to earn from your website).
If you’re not sure exactly what affiliate marketing is yet – hang in with me here and I will explain further in a moment!
WA is very much beginner friendly and you don’t need any prior experience in order to understand the training.
You Can Build A Website Easily, In Minutes.
If you’re thinking that you have no idea how to build a website, it is incredibly easy to build your own website these days.
Wealthy Affiliate show you exactly how to set up a professional looking website, with a few clicks of a button.
Gone are the days where you needed technical skills and coding knowledge to build a website… thankfully!
WA have a WordPress integration that makes building websites as simple as choosing a theme and clicking a few buttons.
Your website is just the initial structure and foundation of your business, Of course.
You will then need to fill your website with content and learn how to rank your posts in the search engines; but this is all taught inside.
This is not just your average course or ebook that your download and never look at, or a brief series of video tutorials that always leaves you feeling lost and needing more answers.
It’s an all round education, beneficial to anyone wanting to learn how they can make legitimate money online in the long term.
The Affiliate Marketing Industry Is Huge & Expanding: A majority of people online either don’t know much about affiliate marketing, or they just don’t understand how to get started with it.
Even many successful bloggers, who get thousands of visitors per day, are leaving money on the table by not learning how to profit from their blogs.
So, if you learn how to use affiliate marketing effectively, you will already have a huge advantage above many others online.
The weird thing is, when you don’t know anything about affiliate marketing, you’re completely unaware it exists all around you.
Yet, Once you know what it is, you will see it EVERYWHERE!
Every time you make a search online, you will likely come across affiliate marketing -just from clicking a link from one website to another.
How many times to do you make an enquiry into Google during your average day? For me, this will be multiple times during the day.
As an example: Let’s just say you’re wanting to find out the best running shoes to wear if you have high arches.
– I’m just picking running off the top of my head, because I’m a runner and have issues with my feet…. I’m creative that way! 😉
Just so that you know, the phrase “Best running shoes for high arches,” is what is we’d call a a long-tail-keyword…
(Again, don’t worry if you have zero idea what that means, it is all covered fully in the training).
What will come up after you click enter a keyword into Google, is a variety of different websites, businesses and blogs.
All these results will be related to that keyword term you just typed in.
A majority of these websites will all be targeting that keyword to make a sale in one way or another. Whether it be through direct selling, or affiliate marketing.
So, imagine you had a niche site in the running shoe niche, or running niche and this is something you were passionate about…
You could provide people with helpful solutions to their problems, give them recommendations for products and services and get paid in the process.
This is where affiliate marketing comes into play. To explain it in the most basic of terms, it works like this:
You, as an affiliate marketer, you connect with other companies in your niche and join their affiliate programs.
You then recommend products and services on your website and show people where they can purchase the products or services.
You can then earn a commission, whenever a sale is made.
It’s a great business model, because it has such a low barrier to entry and is risk free.
You don’t have to worry about buying any inventory, dealing with customer service, shipping, or any of the usual things you’d need to worry about when you sell physical products.
Essentially, you’re the middle man between product and consumer.
There are literally thousands of affiliate programs out there that you can join, in every area of interest you can imagine.
There is not just one set of training at Wealthy Affiliate. The training is constantly evolving developing and growing.
With live training every week and training modules updated and lots of exciting developments always in the pipeline.
There is also an impressive amount of training created by the members themselves.
(After 3 months, you have the chance to create your own training at WA and even get paid for it too)
There is also talk of creating opportunities within the WA platform itself, to earn a full time income within Wealthy Affiliate itself.
They’re constantly listening to members requests of how to evolve Wealthy Affiliate over time, grow and improve.
The creators, Kyle and Carson, always ensure the training is up to date.
In the ever changing world of online marketing, this is incredibly important.
Wealthy affiliate is beginner friendly – so, if you lack much experience online, this is also the ideal program for you to join.
Everything is taught in a very straight forward way step-by-step way and they encourage you to ask for help if you ever need it.
There is support 24 hours a day, whether via live chat, website tech support, the extensive message boards.
You can also private message the creators themselves, who can also often be found on Live Chat.
Even if you do have some prior knowledge in the internet marketing world or have your own website, there is still a considerable amount you can learn at Wealthy Affiliate.
Many people join WA after they have already tried to start up online businesses or websites, but have not managed to make any money.
Others have already been through many programs online, that just haven’t delivered.
Some members at Wealthy Affiliate had been struggling online for years, failing relentlessly, until they found the training here.
If you’re looking at a full comprehensive and ever evolving course, that teaches you everything you need to know about getting started making an online income, this is it.
A majority of the “training” you come across online is complete fluff, with little substance.
Many make money online programs,purposely target people with a get rich quick mentality, because that’s what most people really want.
They want to make a lot of money quickly and with a minimal amount of effort.
This is the primary reason a majority of people fail online and just give up.
Many just don’t understand the work that goes into building an income online and they miss out vital steps.
Then they wonder why all these programs they’ve been buying just don’t work. They don’t work, because there are no short cuts.
But the good thing is, if you’re prepared to work for it, you will be in the minority and have a huge advantage over those who do not.
Initially you’ll be learning…
How to find a niche, (the area of interest your site will be about).
Setting up your free website
SEO skills, (search engine optimization, so you can be found organically in the search engines).
Content Creation, (how you can create valuable, quality content for your website).
Where to find free images for your site….and plenty more besides, with on going weekly training sessions and members uploading their own training daily.
Each lesson is in depth and really straight forward to follow and includes both written material and video tutorials.
For me, the fact there is a lot of video training is ideal because I find it much easier to learn that way and I know plenty of others feel that way too.
However, there is also written information to complement the videos, so you get the best of both worlds.
The below image is a shot of the main area inside of WA, you could think of it as the “hub”… This is WA’s brand new look for 2018. They’ve recently had a makeover.
Inside WA, you have the chance to write blogs, as often as you wish, about your successes, struggles and general experiences into this online world.
There is also live chat, where you can speak to other members and get advice at any time and it’s always very active on there.
On the far left, you can see where you access all the certification courses available.
There is the free keyword tool and there’s classrooms, where you can ask other members about a whole host of topics.
There is also the live video classes – with a huge library of recorded video training.
In short, there is an abundance of information at your finger tips.
Did I mention you’ll also make friends? Yep, there is an active friendly community going on at WA.
There are thousands of members, who are chatting live around the clock, from all over the globe.
Some members have been at WA since it started, well over a decade ago now!

Because of the knowledge and confidence people gain at Wealthy Affiliate, people go on to make money online in a variety of other ways.
These have included…
….and many more!
The great thing about Wealthy Affiliate is that is gives you the training and support you need that can lead to other opportunities.
It also gives you the confidence and knowledge to try out other avenues and the potential to create multiple income streams online.
Once you sign up as a free member, you can always sign up to premium, or a yearly membership at any time.
As a regular monthly premium member, it’s still way under $2 a day, (around $1.60). Less than many of us spend on a single coffee these days.
The great thing is, you can join WA as a starter member for free and unlike some “trial” offers, there is so much value you can get out of your free membership.
You get to look inside WA and get a real grasp what it’s like, you get a 10 part training course and two free WordPress websites.
Even if you decided to leave at that point, you will have learnt a tonne of valuable information.
After your first initial week at WA, your account is not deactivated, you can still keep your websites and be a WA member, but you have limited access to the community/courses.
In order to take full advantage of everything WA has to offer, you would want to become a premium member at some point.
However, you will certainly know one way or another if WA is for you by signing up for the free starter course.
You can then get a feel for how everything is and check out the community and training.
You can see the distinction between the free membership and the premium membership in the table below.
If you’re not that familiar with keyword research yet, don’t worry, they teach you all you need to know about that in the training!
Keyword research will become an important part for you in developing a profitable business, so being able to have a keyword tool available on site is a great advantage.
The live video classes are also a great bonus, as there is a new one added weekly and I have personally learnt so much from them, (and continue to do so month by month!).
You don’t need to watch them live either, as they’re recorded and kept in the video library section on the site to watch whenever you want.
You can watch past video training from years back, hundreds of episodes and it expands week upon week.
As a result, there is consistently more training added every week on every topic area you could need to improve your skills and develop your business.
NEXT STEPS: Once you’re signed up, if you do decide to become a premium member in the first seven days, you will receive the following bonuses from me:
In order to trial out everything that Wealthy affiliate has to offer, $19 is a bargain.
If you’re still not completely sure after your free week that you definitely want to be a premium member, there is no doubt you will know for sure after that first month.
I’ll See You Inside Wealthy Affiliate!
