Wealthy Affiliate Review

A Review of Wealthy Affiliate and How it Works

My review of Wealthy Affiliate and what it has to offer to a beginner or those with extensive training in affiliate marketing. Level 1(comes with the free starter membership) has 10 lessons and with those lessons are 2 free SiteRubix websites with hosting to get you going. Let’s start out with the starter(free) training.

Online Entrepreneur Certification- Getting Started Level 1 (10 lessons)
  1. Getting Rolling
  2. Understanding How to Make Money Online
  3. Choosing a Niche
  4. Building Your OWN Niche Website
  5. Setting Up Your Website
  6. Getting Your Site Ready for Search Engines
  7. Creating your Initial Website Content
  8. Understanding Keywords, The start of Your Content
  9. Creating Your First Keyword Rich Post
  10. Congratulations and Your Next Steps

These lessons are everything you need to get your website going and get it ranked on Google and other search engines like Yahoo, and Bing. So, you can start generating traffic. Did I also mention this is all part of the FREE starter membership (no credit card needed).

Not only are all of those lessons free there are detailed videos that go along with them! There is a tremendous amount of help as well within the community. I can say with certainty that following these steps will get you up a running with a website to start an online business or even just a blog that will attract visitors and eventually revenue through affiliate marketing if you so choose to do so. Working with a close friend and business partner we have been able to build a beautiful website that we are proud of. You can check it out at As you can see on that site we have multiple banners promoting other businesses that we are making commissions on and helping others with their outdoor living spaces.  This is a passion of his, and becoming a passion of mine as well. We followed the above lesson plan, it was such an easy and informative program that we did upgrade with the Premium Member status of Wealthy Affiliate. The training that is provided for Premium Members is unparalleled. There are 5 total levels within the Certification Courses which are:

  1. Getting Started (we covered this one above, all 10 lessons in this coarse come with the free starter program).
  2. Building Your Own Traffic Producing Website
  3. Making Money
  4. Mastering Social Engagement
  5. Achieving Maximum Success Through Content Creation

There are 10 lessons under each of the courses with detailed video tutorials in each lesson (a total of 50 lessons). The resources within the community is a live chat which we have used religiously to answer the majority of our questions. You can also private message any of the members and the co-founders (Kyle and Carson) they actually answer back in a timely manner. Every Friday you can be a part of a 1-hour live webinar training class. There are ambassadors that have been with this program for a long time and make training for others as well. We have not had a question unanswered at all since we started. If you have any questions or comments please leave them below. Thank you for your time!

Starter Versus Premium

Starter (free) account is just that its free, no credit card required. with the free account you get two websites and hosting for free. There are a video walk-through on all free training steps witch include getting started, understanding how to make money online, the ins and outs on choosing a niche, building your own website, setting up that website, getting that site set up for SEO (search engine optimization) in this lesson they also explain what SEO means for you by being ranked in Google and many more. Wealthy Affiliate does have there own affiliate program but its not required to promote them. I have found the free program to be very informative and easy to use.

When you do sign up Wealthy Affiliate gives some of the Premium options for 7 days. During the program training the community (Premium Members) are a significant help in any questions that might come up, with the free account you can still email anyone. The free program is for beginners or others that need help in getting a website built, the right content to get that website indexed and ranked by google. Honestly I upgraded to premium for the rest of the training and for the community.

Premium account there is a very low monthly charge. With Premium you get 50 websites 25 on your own domain and 25 on sub-domains with hosting on all. With the domains you do have to purchase each one at a low cost, they come with privacy security. Domains anywhere you go will cost if YOU want to own that domain plus there is an added charge for privacy security. Privacy security is to guard your private information on places such as WhoIs. The community in Wealthy Affiliate is an unbelievable help. This is what Wealthy Affiliate promotes the most is the community. You can email, message anyone in the community plus live chats are a great help for the now! Live one hour video training every Friday. The added training for the Premium members will help refine your content to attract and keep your audience, and get ranked higher on Google so others can find your site better. The benefits of the Premium program are too much to list in this single post. 

The advantage of the free Starter program is to get started and make money to cover the premium so no out of pocket costs. With that in mind I personally saw the value of the Premium program and upgraded right away. I have not been disappointed at all. This is a genuine training program.

Success is a Click Away

While surfing online looking for jobs there are a lot of ads on making money online from home, all you need is a computer and internet. Sounds great doesn’t it. Every time an ad claiming to get started for free it was just another free trial, you would have to enter a credit card number for a short trial period. First the trial period was not long enough, second there were only explanations of what you could do not how to or steps to take. To set everything up there are multiple different things you may have to pay for additionally (domain, website builder, site hosting, WordPress, Leadpages, Autoresponders, etc.). The monthly costs add up quickly. There are sites you can get a domain and a free website with a monthly hosting fee. With the Wealthy Affiliate program you get two free websites, hosting for the two free sites with in depth training on the starter program absolutely free, no credit card required.

With Wealthy Affiliate University the training is truly a step by step process including building the website, getting traffic, SEO (search engine optimization) and much more. It is great for a beginner that are starting out or for those whom already have websites that are in need of extra training.
