Wealthy Affiliate review

My Top 5 Reasons Why Wealthy Affiliate is My #1 Recommendation

Reason #1: It is Totally Free. See for yourself. No personal information, No CC is needed to join.

Reason #2: 24/7 Amazing Online Support. WA`s support, including its creators who are making millions of dollars, is always there to help and to guide you. All questions are answered within minutes. There is even online chat providing support 24/7. Moreover, you can only turn to other members of WA community (like myself) to find guidance and help.

Join WA. Then stop by and say hello in the chat if you do not believe!

Reason #3: The Internet is full of misleading advice on doing business online, and like in any business, it is so easy to make mistakes and put your effort into wrong direction. However, with the training and amazing support WA is providing, you will never feel lost on your way to success.

Reason #4: Legitimacy. At Wealthy Affiliate you will learn how to do business online legally, without any scams, but just doing what you really love and care for.

Reason #5: My personal guarantee and experience. I’ve been using Wealthy Affiliate for years now and I owe my success in online affiliate marketing to WA. Nowadays, it’s pretty hard to find a trusted online program, and Wealthy Affiliate is one of them. You have my word.

Prior to finding them, I went through a very bad cycle of scams/failures online which lasted nearly 3 years. Today I do online marketing full time and earn money from home. I attribute the success to the training I got here. If I can do it, you can too. )

But How WA works

There is a lot of training within WA that teaches you various ways to make money online. All the way from A-Z. But if you’re completely new, the best way to start is through their Get Started Here section. This takes you through the meat & potatoes of building an online business from scratch.

Even if you have NO idea about what you want to build an online business out of, the training will show an optional path you can take in which you learn to make money in a specific market.

Long story short: Begin with the “Training” section. Click it and it will take you to the “Getting Started” training. This will guide you through everything and answer all of your questions. Here is how the training section looks:

How the training helps you make money online:

The training is broken down into 4 different parts. Each part has step-by-step lessons which you’ll follow. They are all focused on building a profitable online business. Here’s how it works:

1. Choose an interest: This is the starting point. While it can be anything you want, it is recommended to pick a topic that you personally have interest in. When I began doing online marketing with WA, I chose the diet & fitness topic because I have personal experience & interest with.

2. Make a website: With WA, you don’t need any experience in making websites. They actually give you 2 free websites which are yours to do with as you please. The sites are pre-built and coded so you don’t need to worry about anything. You just select a name for the website & how you want it to look. The process takes less than 30 seconds (I’ve timed it).
Note: The key is to use the training from WA and apply it to the free websites you’re given.

3. Get visitors: In order to make money online, your website needs to get traffic (visitors). The more you get, the more money you can make. Through WA’s training, you’ll learn how to get visitors to your website interested in the subject you chose.

4. Make money (My Favorite Part!): You’ll promote products on your site and when visitors come and buy, you earn money. Example:

  • For step 1, I chose teaching dogs tricks as a subject.
  • For step 2, I’d make a website focused on that subject.
  • For step 3, I’d get visitors to my site interested in this topic.
  • For Step 4 (the money part), I could promote products from other places like Amazon (books, training DVDs, dog training accessories, ect…) and earn money every time a visitor purchased these things from my site.

There are literally millions of different subjects to choose from to earn money with. Each subject has a large amount of people interested in it who look for information on it on a daily basis.

By having a website with that information on it, you can leverage this and earn money in the process. This is exactly what WA will teach you to do, even if you have no prior experience with this stuff. The amount you can make is really limitless.

My personal results applying the 4 steps on my website:

I crossed the 500 visitor/day mark. The site is making money on a near daily basis and as time goes on, the profits are only rising. This is exactly the kind of trend you’ll see when you apply the training to your online business. Remember, the more visitors you get, the more money you can make.

And just as an update, in 2018…

I’m still growing the same site and it’s traffic. Furthermore, I’ve made other sites using the exact same steps and they are also getting 100’s in traffic every single day (and sales). This formula can be replicated in ANY niche topic.

Very important: This is a process and not a get rich quick scheme. But the lessons are very simple to follow. Each lesson is in video/text format and has a “to do” list at the end.

As a starter member (which is free), you get access to the first 10 lessons of this training. By the time you finish it, you will have:

• Chosen your topic.
• Created your website.
• Established the foundations necessary to start getting visitors & earn money.

This place is all about TAKING action as you go through each lesson. You’re not going to be reading/watching tutorials and nodding your head. You’re actually going to be putting what is being taught into action.

The training itself will take you across the A-Z of online marketing. By the time you finish it, you will be an advanced internet marketer and in many cases already running a sustainable online business that’s earning you money. It can be supplementary or even primary like in my case.

Niche topics I’ve personally made money with:

  • Making money online.
  • Weight loss.
  • Dieting.
  • Selling fitness equipment.
  • Selling women’s fitness DVDs.

Create your own niche business. No experience necessary. Click here to get started.

How long does it take to see results?

If you put what is taught into action, you can start seeing results within a few weeks. I’ve tried WA’s approach to online business on various sites. With ones with less competition, a few weeks is usually when you start seeing results. They aren’t big (at first), but it’s a starting point that only grows. With more competitive niches, typically 3-6 months.

Are there faster ways to see results? Yes & no. Most programs which promise fast results use shady methods of marketing which only work in the short run and then your site gets penalized by Google & other search engines.

What is taught at WA is completely straight forward and focused on long term results. The BEST thing you can do to see the fastest possible results is work at it everyday.

Do what is taught in the training and apply it on a daily basis. This will bring about results the fastest way possible, but focus less on making money and more so building a business. There’s a BIG difference.
So if you’re here to make make a quick buck, I’m sorry to disappoint you, but that’s not happening.

Not with WA & not with any other program out there. And any place which promises you this is a scam. Take it from someone whose stepped on that rake MANY times. There are people making 4,5,6 and even 7 figure incomes doing this stuff and they’ve reached this point because they followed through the training.

WA also features a Premium Membership that’s available for $49 a month. This is basically an all-access type pass into the program.

Free membership (Starter) vs Premium:

Starter: Starter members (free) get access to communicate with the community, including Kyle and Carson (both for 7 days), get 2 free websites and also access to the Get Started Here training.

Premium: I very often get asked about the premium membership and want to explain it here. It’s optional, costs $49/month, but it provides access to everything within WA including:

  • 24-7, 365 support. To myself, every member and the founders. You get this as a starter for the first 7 days.
  • You can make up to 25 free websites.
  • Free hosting for up to 25 of your own websites.
  • Weekly webinars covering all aspects of making money online to further help you. There’s over 300.
  • 1 on 1 coaching & support from WA’s creators, Kyle & Carson.
  • Access to 100’s of training tutorials.

There’s obviously a lot of benefits, but my advice is to Try the Starter Membership (which is free) and see if you enjoy what you learn. If you do and want to go further, then I’d recommend the Premium membership.

No one is ever pushed into premium. It’s all a matter of if you feel comfortable. Only try premium if you’re happy with WA. It is optional and you are welcome to stay as a free member as long as you like 🙂

Wealthy Affiliate’s Pros & Cons:


  • Provides all forms & levels of internet marketing training.
  • Simple to follow step-by-step training with tutorials and videos.
  • Very newbie friendly.
  • Provides excellent support.
  • Gives you 2 free websites.
  • Costs $0 to join (no funny business, no risk). Join here.
  • Gives you access to top level internet marketers and support.
  • 24-7 online chat if you have any questions.
  • One of the few places where you learn to make money legitimately.
  • This is the most ethical program I have ever come across.


Possible information overload usually happens for first timers, but this vanishes quickly.

Final Rating: Wealthy Affiliate.

Green Light (My #1 recommendation).

9.5 out of 10 stars. Highest rated program I’ve ever tried and made money from. It’s legitimate, beginner friendly and the support is amazing. This is the program that will make you GOOD money online if you use it.

If you want to succeed online, here’s my BEST advice:

Try the starter membership and go through the training. There are NO risks and if you don’t like what you see, you can leave anytime you want, without being obligated. And even then, you’ll still have 2 websites to do with as you please.

My final thoughts

WA is without a doubt my #1 recommendation for many of the reasons I stated above. If you’re looking to make an extra buck online or perhaps go further and do it full time like me, this is by far the best place to show you exactly how to do it. Join it today.

The key to success is utilizing proper guidance (which WA provides & my coaching adds to) and taking action. With these ingredients, I promise that you will see results.

If you have ANY questions about WA or if you’re a current member would like to leave your personal review, you can do so below in the comments section.


    1. WA is available to the entire world…as the opportunity is global and usually your location in the world will not impact your opportunity at all.
      In saying this, there are certain countries that cannot join “Starter” and are required to go Premium right away. These include:


      The reason they have done this is because of high fraud rates and gaming of the system here at WA. By all means they can still join, but they are required to join as a Premium member right away.

  1. Hi Ali, I was looking for some information about Wealthy Affiliate when I came across your review, and I’m glad I did. I’m a very cautious person and don’t like starting something I haven’t double-checked first. I saw an advert for this platform which sounded quite promising but didn’t want to fall for a scam. But I have a much clearer picture of Wealthy Affiliate now – I have to say it almost sounds too good to be true. So you get two websites for free, technical support, training and access to web tools as well? And you really don’t need to commit to anything? How long can I try it for free and when do I need to start paying? And once you are a paying member, what if you want to stop after one or two months? Can I get out of that contract or is there a minimum period I need to pay for? Also, you mention that it’s suitable for beginners as well. Does this include people who have never built a website before? I’m not tech savvy and a bit concerned that it will all be beyond me. Sorry when I’m asking a lot of questions but I just wanted to have these clarified before I sign up to Wealthy Affiliate. It sounds so amazing that you wonder how can anybody offer a platform like that.
    Hope to hear from you soon.

  2. Hello Ali! This is one of the best reviews I’ve seen on Wealthy Affiliate. And I’ve seen a few.

    I’m a stay-home mother and have been looking into affiliate marketing actively for about 4 months now. I got introduced to the idea over a year ago or more. I kept toying with the idea of affiliate marketing but it wasn’t until after I had my girl that I really committed to it. I just felt like I either needed more tech experience or needed to promote products I didn’t believe in or that the whole thing was a scam all around.

    The last statement is almost true. When I started doing some research online, I came across so many scams and coaches charging ridiculous amounts of money (the cheapest one I found was $5,000). I got taken in by one and luckily only lost $250 in the process. I know it could have been much worse. So $50 a month pales in comparison to what most of the others are charging for their “expertise.”

    Thanks for this breakdown of the program. It makes me feel confident in my decision to get involved in affiliate marketing.

  3. Brilliant brilliant stuff here, it sounds like WA is the place I need to be! From reading the post I got more and more intrigued by the program, I’ve never heard of a better program if im honest, had a few scam and failure programs in the past however I will definitely be joining up and see how it goes.
    Thanks for the information Ali!

  4. Wow Ali you are acting like a mentor
    I definitely agree with you 100% on all the information you give on that review about Wealthy Affiliate.
    the reason why i consider you as a mentor it’s because you direct me to the right place to have solid online business and what best about i didn’t i was that cheap for all these tools people have access to in wealthy affiliate. I have never met an affiliate program with self hosting and free for user. I didn’t believe that but after i tried it i realize you were telling the truth that is why i come back to place this comment on your post because it has helped me.
    I am now in a good spot to make my business online.
    Thank you Ali.
    I will check your posts often so that i get all your new posts
    Thank you again.

    1. Hi Junior and thanks for your comment. I’m happy to see that my review was useful for you and I’m sure that you’ll get success with Wealthy Affiliate if you be patience and follow training step by step )

  5. Wow Ali. What a detailed review, and I think you covered almost everything.

    One thing I will mention is that it is okay to join Wealthy Affiliate and not see success for a while. Sure, there are lots of people bringing in 6 figures, 7 figures a month but the VAST majority of people there are still learning and growing, same as everyone.

    My mistake when I first joined was that I believed everyone BUT me was making huge money online, and that was really discouraging.

    It was only when I started reaching out to people and participating in the community that I realized everyone is rooting for each other and the chances are that however ‘behind’ you might feel, there are others on WA that would benefit from your experience and advice. And in turn, if you reach out to others who are doing well at WA, I can almost guarantee that they’ll get in touch with you and give you some 1 on 1 coaching if you request.

    Don’t expect to make money straight away and do be prepared to work hard first!

    Just my two cents,


  6. What an informative and well written article.
    I don’t think you missed answering any questions someone would have about joining Wealthy Affiliate.
    The design of your website is great also, something I’m sure you learned through Wealthy Affiliate.
    As a member myself, I know you hit every detail in your review and people would be foolish not to give WA a try after reading your post. I wish I could do as good a job! Well done!

  7. Hi Ali,
    First of all great post on Wealthy Affiliate , everything is well written and described with screen shots of payments. WA is the best platform for Affiliate marketing where you can simultaneously learn and earn and you can build your successful online venture.

    I’m new to this WA family, and to be honest I have learnt a lot about online marketing and looking forward to earn my first income through my website.

  8. This Wealthy Affiliate review is very high level. You have highlighted the very important aspects in this article.
    There is no way in the internet you could get such high value for such a low price.
    On top of such a low price you get to rub shoulders with the top earners in the internet (this is super amazing).
    Being a member myself I can definitely vouch that all of what you mentioned is 100%.
    The one aspect people should understand is that Wealthy Affiliate is your number one way to having a stable online business because the community is filled with people who are wanting you to succeed unlike in school where people want to succeed on their own.
    I also love the fact that you showed the results from members and yourself so it shows the readers how real this is.
    Great review man

    1. Hello Satish, you simply need to follow training which start with “Get started here” on the left side. I’ve also exlpained other steps in details in a message on WA for you.

      Wish you best success,

  9. Brilliant review. I am also a member of WA and I joined in March 2018. I am very keen to see how much people are making as I have not made a sale yet. I am very pleased to have come across this review. I am concentrating on building traffic at the moment but was wondering if you have any tips on getting more traffic that you could give? Is it all about writing more and more good content on your website? It gives me so much motivation to know that there are members who are really making good money and I am going to stick with it. There really is a great community of people on there and the training and support is worth every penny. I wouldn’t have a clue with out WA. I really hope I am as successful as you Ali. Congratulations and well done. It is all done to your perseverance and hard work.

    1. Hello Vicki and thanks for your comment. Yes the base is writing more quality content on a regular basis. Of course there are other ways like ppc which brings result faster but you need to invest money and you may lose money if you do not know what you’re doing exactly. So the SEO tactics which is teaches in details in WA is free way to get unlimited traffic into your website. The key is “patience” and this is what you need always keep in your mind.
      I’m sure you can get success if you put time and effort behind it. As you can see there are many many people who share their success stories in WA and you can be definitely one of them too, so do not give up easily. )


  10. Very insightful, and I must say, WA sounds almost too good to be true. I wonder, is there any sort of time frame to complete the training courses you talk about or can you go at your own pace?

    1. You can complete the course step by step and it does not push you to complete it on a specific time frame. It lets you learn EVERYTHING on each lesson first before going to the next lesson because it focuses on your SUCCESS rather than completing course faster.
      Thanks for your comment )

  11. Wealthy Affiliate is an awesome internet marketing community. I have been there since 2008 and I wouldn’t go anywhere else. They have have taught me everything I know about affiliate marketing.

    1 on 1 support from Kyle and Carson.

    Weekly webinars.
    People in the community really help out a lot.
    Great affiliate program that pays money monthly.

    All and all, there are a ton of programs out there. You could waste your money with any other programs. But, make the smart decision and go with Wealthy Affiliate. It will change your life.

  12. Great review of wealthy affiliate! As a member myself, I can definitely agree that this has been the best most straight-forward platform for making money. And best of all it’s FREE to start. For anyone who is on the fence and looking for an honest way to start an online business, this is it.
