What Is Wealthy Affiliate?
“Turn Any Passion Into a Successful Affiliate Marketing Business“.
Wealthy Affiliate says it all with its slogan.
What Wealthy Affiliate will do is they will help you pick an interest, turn it into an online business, and start earning money. And because you are going to build a business based on your interests, it will be very exciting and easier for you to succeed!
Wealthy Affiliate is above all a training website but the truth is, it’s much more than that. The platform has a huge online community (over 523 000 sign ups) that interacts with one another and offers guidance and support. I’ve really never seen anything like it.
Who Is Behind Wealthy Affiliate?
This unique online community membership site was founded in 2005 by two successful online marketers Carson and Kyle and it is now the number one training program to create & grow a successful home-based business.
The owners & creators are very present within the community and you can contact them directly whenever you have an issue or a question. You can tell these two are really good at what they do and genuinely want to help.
If you are wondering whether it’s reliable or not, I can assure you that you will not find any negative review of it on the internet. You can even try it for free and come back here to insult me if you hated it! They’ve been out there for over a decade and have kept their promises. It’s neither a get-rich-quick scheme nor a pyramid scam.
Think of it rather as an online business university and marketing training center. Wealthy Affiliate won’t promise to make you rich overnight. But it’ll educate you, support you and allow you to build a real sustainable business.
Who Is Wealthy Affiliate For?
I suppose not everybody will love Wealthy Affiliate, mostly because we’re not all trying to build our own business !=) Some people are actually happy with their job! But many aren’t and they deserve to get quality help and training to build a happier life.
I haven’t seen anyone in the community who wasn’t happy with it, with the program and what is has to offer. So in short, I’d say that Wealthy Affiliate will meet your expectations (and far beyond) if :
- you are willing to start your own home-based business with no idea where to start !
- you have a passion or several & would love to turn them into an actual job!
- you already have a business but feel stuck and want to give up !
- you don’t know anything about computer, network marketing or online business but you’re curious to learn!
- you have many dreams that you want to fulfill but need guidance and motivation!
Pros & Cons
- Clear plan of action. It’s really easy to know what to do. There are step by step courses with tasks to do. Very scholar but soooo efficient and rewarding.
- There’s all levels of training (beginner and advanced)
- Video trainings, step-by-step tutorials and courses. If you like visuals you can watch video tutorials. If you prefer reading you’ll find text tutorials. There are trainings about absolutely everything imaginable… you just type in the search bar and start a training or view a discussion.
- over 390 000 of community members. Which makes it very active and dynamic. The energy is so positive it’s contagious! =)
- 13 full, interactive classrooms with tasks to complete. This is the foundation of your business
- Live & interactive help from owners and expert members. It’s simply impossible to get stuck… If you don’t understand something, someone will explain differently or send you a tutorial… This community just keeps you on track, all the time!
- 2 free easy-to-build websites (you will also learn what to do with these sites)
- State of the art hosting
- A strict spam free environment
- No up-sells
- $0 Membership. Yes, completely FREE!
- So much information that it can become overwhelming. You just need to take your time and not want to explore all at once ! lol
How Much Does It Cost?
Wealthy Affiliate offers two memberships :
- A FREE membership (not a trial version, the free membership is free forever!)
- A PREMIUM membership ($47)
Both are awesome, but inevitably the premium subscription comes with significant benefits. However, note that the free option is not one of those so-called memberships that only last seven days and leave you frustrated.
Lots of people remain free members for months, until they are confident enough or satisfied with what they’ve accomplished through the program and decide to take their business to the next level. As far as I’m concerned I went premium because I just knew it was the right thing to do for my business.

Conclusion (& A Little Surprise!!!)
I have nothing to gain lying to you. Whether you join the community or not, my company will continue to grow! =) Before I signed up to Wealthy Affiliate, I was already running my own business from home but it was not stable, it stagnated. I knew I was doing something wrong (trusting the wrong people, getting scammed, etc.)
And then I stumbled upon Wealthy Affiliate and it has changed EVERYTHING! The list of the benefits would be a bit too long but if I had to name some of the positive points that I’ve gained, they would be as follow :
- a better understanding of online business
- the constant desire to learn and improve myself
- meeting interesting, positive and motivated people
- the creation of three websites based on three of my passions, something I could never have done without WA’s training and support
- getting traffic to my websites, comments and conversions
- an increase in my income and the stabilization of my business
Simply put : there is a before and an after Wealthy Affiliate ! My only “regret” : why did I not come across Wealthy Affiliate 9 years ago?! =)
