Who is Wealthy Affiliate For?

Now here comes the big question, is Wealthy Affiliate for you?? I once started Wealthy Affiliate a couple years ago, but was not in a position to stick with it. As a result I ended up spending $100 unnecessarily. Now if I had really known what it was going to take to become successful at WA, I would’ve held off for a while.

Wealthy Affiliate is for those who can think long term and are patient. Creating a blog and doing affiliate marketing takes time! This is not something where you will be making a profit within a few days. More like, you will make your first commission within 6-12 months!!

There are tons of success stories out there where people are making millions off their blog, well guess what? They have been working on it for years and years and years! If you think that you can do it “faster” than others, well I’m sorry to say, it’s not going to happen!

If you need money right now or you are going to go homeless, starting up a website is not what you want to do. It might be better to do some type of job on the side until you get into a better place financially. When you are stressing about money, it makes everything a million times harder.

People who are like me, who aren’t stressing financially but want to build something a business that brings in passive income and you have the time to dedicate to it, this would be a great opportunity!

If you don’t have the time to put in at least 10 hours a week, this wouldn’t be for you either. To be successful at blogging/affiliate marketing you need to be able to write two articles a week plus design the layout of your website while going through training.

You want to treat this like a business, otherwise it will just be a hobby and fail. As of right now I dedicate at least twenty hours a week to building MindzUnleashed.

Also if you are a pro or have been doing affiliate marketing for quite some time, Wealthy Affiliate probably isn’t for you, it is best suited for those who have no idea on how it works, so if you are a beginner, then you’ll definitely want to do this!


How Much Does Wealthy Affiliate Cost?

I know in the overview I went over pricing, but now I’d like to go into more detail on what you get for the starter (free) membership and the premium (paid) membership. Here is a picture at a quick glance! You can scroll down to any of these and see my quick definition for each! If you know what all these are then you can skip this section!

If you want to have more information on everything in Wealthy Affiliate I will be doing a super in depth analysis on everything!

First I will do a condensed review for those who don’t want to read a novel!
The Best Affiliate Training Course

As you can see there are tons of features included in the premium membership that you don’t get with the starter membership. I’ll give a quick summary for each one of these features so you know what they do!

Live Help: In the community chat you can ask questions and get help from members in real time. I myself answer quite a few questions throughout the day.

Private Messaging: Just like messenger you can communicate privately with other premium members and have discussions.

Websites: With the starter membership you can have two websites with Wealthy Affiliate. With the premium you can have fifty websites at Wealthy Affiliate (don’t worry, that is more than enough!)

Website Security Package: Top notch security for your website

Website Backup: Pretty self-explanatory, but a backup of your website encase anything goes wrong with it and it crashes or something of that nature.

Beginner Training Course: Video lessons on how to get your blog up and running so you are making money within 6-12 months! There are seven modules, however the starter membership only comes with access to the first module.

Personal Affiliate Blog: This is pretty cool, within Wealthy Affiliate you have your own personal blog that you can gain rank within Google immediately!

Affiliate Bootcamp Training: Wealthy Affiliate has their own affiliate program (one of the highest paid out there!), this Bootcamp Training teaches you how to market Wealthy Affiliate and gain an income on it! Here is a sample of how much you can make with the program!

Earn While You Learn: Honestly, this one doesn’t strike me as a great feature just because you should always be learning, even if you are making millions of dollars per year. In my mind technically you should always be making money while learning!

Live Video Classes: This is actually a cool feature! Every Friday there is a live training you can tune into. If you can’t make it they make it available afterwards for everyone! So besides the normal training modules, there are tons of other training s on so many topics regarding blogging/affiliate marketing/creating e books!

Keyword Research Tools: This is one of my favorite features! A big part of getting traffic to your website is by creating content, but you need to make sure you are using the right keywords! If you create a blog with a keyword that has lots of competition, the chances of getting ranked in Google are slim, but if you use a keyword that doesn’t have much competition then you will get ranked into Google easier!

Training Classrooms: In this feature you can choose a topic and see training s that people within the community have made! Eventually when you get a high enough rank in the community you can actually create your own training s and get paid for them!

1 on 1 Coaching: This is pretty obvious, but you can get help from the top people in the community if you get stuck with something!

Private Access to Owners: Yes you can message with Kyle and Carson, though it might be a bit of a wait as they probably get 100’s of messages a day!

24/7/365 Website Support: If something goes wrong with your website, you can always message support and they will help you with your problem! I had a question once and they got back to me within fifteen minutes!

Website Feedback Platform: This is a great feature! You can share your website with the community and get feedback on how you can improve it! This is important because it can help you turn your website to what your audience wants!

Website Comments Platform: This is another great feature because Google will trust your website more as people engage with the content! You can share posts with others and have them post comments relevant to your post!

Website Analysis: Wealthy Affiliate has a tool that tells you how your website is doing and what you can do to make it better and more trustworthy. Here is a picture showing what that looks like!

As you can see there are many features available! Is it worth the price? YES!!!!


Go ALL IN For Success

Success is never guaranteed for anyone! If you truly want to have the best chance at being successful with affiliate marketing/blogging, then you need to go ALL IN!

You can’t sit on the fence. When I decided that this was what I wanted to do for my business I bought the yearly membership! I also paid a company to create my logo, once you have spent your hard-earned money you aren’t going to want to quit. You WILL want to try to make that money back!

If you commit to it, make sure you are committed to trying to make it work for at least five years! Amazon didn’t make a profit for the first seven years it was up! Now Amazon is one of the biggest companies out there! What if Jeff Bezos had given up after year two because he hadn’t made a profit yet? Crazy to think about huh?


A Little Gift From Me!

Okay, so here is what I want you to do. If you have thought AT ALL about doing affiliate marketing, become a Starter Member now! If in your first week you decide you like what you see I’ll give you your first month as a Premium member over 60% OFF!! Instead of $49 your first month it will be $19, but you have to decide in the first week! (Don’t worry, I decided in the first two days haha!) If you don’t like what you see then you don’t need to take the offer!

Once you join I will send you a personal message within the first hour! Remember, you can ask me any questions at all once you are in the community! Click on the “Get Started Here!” in the picture below to create your free account!

For those of you who are still a little skeptical, I am going to be doing a very in-depth presentation to show you EVERY. SINGLE. FEATURE! (Or at least try to!)

Frequently Asked Questions

I pulled this list of frequently asked questions from Jaaxy! As I find more I will update it!

How is Wealthy Affiliate a Scam??

For some reason there is A TON of people out there asking this question each month, I’m guessing they are find some forum or group that claims Wealthy Affiliate to be a scam, therefore they go type into Google “how is Wealthy Affiliate a scam?” I hope reach most of those people! Simply put, Wealthy Affiliate is not a scam.

If Wealthy Affiliate was a scam they would have been shut down long, long ago! Unfortunately there have been tons and tons of companies since the start of the internet age who have taken complete advantage of people in schemes promising easy money to be made or a get rich quick system.

In fact it has happened so much that almost everyone is weary when a company offers the opportunity to make money online. Don’t worry this is normal, I felt this way when I first was introduced to Wealthy Affiliate.

The thing that really made me trust was the fact that I could try out the premium features for a week free WITHOUT having to give my credit card information out. After seeing the community and how helpful everyone was and all the training and support I would receive for the premium membership I knew that there was nothing else better out there!

The first time I joined Wealthy Affiliate back in 2016 I probably lost a total of close to $200. Why? Because I DIDN’T stick with it. I DIDN’T do what they told me to do, it was MY FAULT that I lost money and time.

Sadly many people who go through what I went through will end up blaming the company their loss and call it scam, and that isn’t fair at all. Kyle and Carson are very clear in saying that this isn’t a get rich quick scheme. They make it clear that it takes 6-12 months to start seeing results of some kind.

**UPDATE** Kyle and Carson just won a 3 year court battle against MOBE (My Online Business Education) who was just shutdown for scamming people! Read their powerful story here!

How Much will I Earn with Wealthy Affiliate?

This is totally 100% up to you! With affiliate marketing you can make just few hundred extra bucks  month all the way up to $100,000+ a month! There are many factors that play into how much you can make. Can you stick with it? Are you willing to work 3 or 4 hours a day on it? Are you creative?

The more hours, the more posts you write, the more value you bring to others will play a huge roll in you success! If you just see making a blog or website as a hobby and only work on it for a few hours week, it’s gonna be a long time before you find success.

From what I’ve seen, the people who start to make money with Wealthy Affiliate are putting in around 20+ a week to start! You have to remember that with affiliate marketing that you aren’t going to make money overnight! It is a process and something you have to have a long term vision for!

Is Wealthy Affiliate Worth the Money??

Simple Answer: Yes

Explanation: First off I will start off with all the expenses within Wealthy Affiliate. The Premium Membership is going to cost you $349 if you pay yearly! To start that comes out to less than $1 a day.

If you don’t have your own domain yet, you can purchase a domain within Wealthy Affiliate and it will cost you around $12 (unless you get a premium domain it will cost significantly more). Then you will have to add another $16 for hosting each year. The lower end cost is going to be around $377 for your first year! If you decide to do monthly payments you are looking at quite a bit more as the total cost will be around $597 (why I personally decided to get the yearly membership)

For that $377 you get everything that has been mentioned in this review so far. There are NO UPSELLS! Wealthy Affiliate has been this price ever since it first started up in 2005, they don’t raise the cost even for inflation.

To put this in perspective…the average student spends about $1200 on text books each year…most the time text books are hardly EVER USED! With that $377 you spend at Wealthy Affiliate you could make that back in the first year if you worked really hard!

I see people everyday here at Wealthy Affiliate who are making money because of this program! I’ll actually make a video showing you some of the people who have being able to go full time because of Wealthy Affiliate!

Kyle and Carson just recently came out with an update that allows everyone (even starter members) have secure websites (the little pad-lock in the URL). Before they came out with this, you would have to go find another company and pay up to $100/Year to have that feature! Now it is included in your Starter and Premium account!

I don’t know how best to explain it but you can read the update they sent out here on SSL!

If there is anything you want me to add to this post or improve upon let me know!

    Wealthy Affiliate is absolutely incredible. I have been a member for a little over two months now, and I have already gained tremendous benefits from being on their platform. I already have an awesome looking website that is already generating me some money , and I am so excited about the future. Everyone should try out Wealthy Affiliate.

    • Chris

      I am glad to hear that your experience has been so great! I’ve been with them for just over a month now and am absolutely loving it!! That is amazing you are already generating money after two months! That gives me hope that I might not have to wait a year haha!

  2. Rob

    Hey Chris 🙂 Your article is so good that I bookmarked it. I was so glad that I found Wealthy Affiliate and it’s been a long hard road so far. But it will be worth it. You made an excellent point about Jeff Bezos and Amazon. I didn’t know either of this facts. If he can do what he did, why can’t any of us? Wealthy Affiliate gives you all the tools necessary to be a success!
    Thanks Chris 🙂

    • Chris

      I am so glad to hear that you found value in it! That definitely boosts my confidence in my ability to do this! Wealthy Affiliate has everything needed to become successful!!

  3. Jan

    Hi Chris!

    Yes, to build a business always take time so it’s funny how many there are that think they can make money in a flash and without any cost.

    Many people are spending a lot of money on buying expensive coffee every day but few are willing to pay anything to start a business 🙂

    By the way…great review! I have one question:

    How long has Wealthy Affiliate been around?

    Regards, Jan

    • Chris

      I totally agree with you! It is nuts that people can spend $5.00 on a coffee or lots of money on some sort of habit but find it hard to invest a dollar a day to start into their business!! I think I might add a section about this to this post now haha! I will also have to add how long Wealthy Affiliate has been around as well! Thanks for your feedback!

  4. Kris

    Yes, it is very true! We have to realize that no affiliate company can make us rich, it takes time, effort, hard work, and right attitude to succeed! This is a very honest and straightforward article! Thanks for sharing!

  5. Mary

    Hi Chris,
    You are so right about this gym example. Too many people are not able to take the responsibility. Creating an affiliate business is a marathon, not a sprint. Sometimes it really hard to stick to it, to sacrifice a LOT of time before you see a penny. But your website is an asset, and it needs to exist for a while before Google really counts it. So better to start now. Who knows what use you would be able to make of it 5 years from now?
    Wealthy Affiliate is the right place to start the journey
    Mary

    • Chris

      Yeah, there is a ton of sweat equity up front with starting a website, but in return the start up costs are super low so you have less financial risk! 5 years from now you can be making tons of profit, but sticking with it is definitely the hard part!

  6. Eric Chen

    Great article! Wealthy Affiliate is certainly not a scam. I’ve been with WA for almost a year now and the things that I’ve learned is priceless. For the cost of less than a cup of coffee per day, it’s one heck of a deal. Especially when it comes to investing in yourself. Also, they offer a free membership as a test drive with plenty of information even for starters, so what’s the risk ?

    Cheers,
    Eric

    • Chris

      I know! You literally pay less than you would pay for one textbook at college that you probably won’t even use that much! When you think about it that way, it definitely seems underpriced!

  7. hong

    Thank you for sharing. This was a great article. Online business is just like any business, it takes time and effort to see results. Obviously. The more you put into it, the sooner you will see success. It’s very interesting that people would pay to go to the gym and majority of them don’t even show up. I know I used to do that with my gym membership. When I first joined wealthy affiliate, I used to pay premium for months before I finally decided to get back to work. This is a really through and honest review of wealthy affiliate. I really appreciate the information.

  8. Jeff

    Chris, I enjoyed learning more about Wealthy Affiliate. I appreciate your objectivity and not trying to hype it up to something unrealistic. When starting up a business, it’s best to be informed and you have provided us with a good overview of WA.

    Thanks,
    Jeff

    • Chris

      I’m glad! That’s what I want to go for! I know there are lots of business opportunities that get hyped up and people end up being let down and then resent it. I don’t want to do that to anyone!

  9. Ivan Brozincevic

    Great review! I was a little bit skeptic about is a Wealthy Affiliate just another scam before I paid my membership and took a closer look at the program. There are too many ripoffs outs there, so who can blame me!? Now, after some time with this course, I am more than happy to say that they are probably the best online affiliate marketing course! You are right, people will trash talk the service only to justify their own laziness… However, it is their money that goes to waste so… Thank you again for a great article! All the best.

    Ivan

    • Chris

      Hey Ivan!
      I also was a little skeptical at first when I first joined, but I can now say they have over delivered on their end with all the great training they have! Wealthy Affiliate definitely makes it a easy step by step process!

  10. Ngonidzashe Manzwangani

    In the past years, I have struggled to find how I could make money online, the whole thing changed after I found Wealthy Affiliate. The whole process of creating a website is simplified. If I would rate Wealthy Affiliate out of 10, I would give it 10/10. The training, the help, and support and the Premium membership is affordable.

  11. Miranda

    I love when you said “this is a business not a hobby”. I wrote that down on a sticky note to remind myself that! This was such a detailed review, awesome work. I definitely took in a lot of things.

  12. Matts Mom

    Great review on Wealthy Affiliate. I tend to agree with you 100%. I have been with them for about 2 years now, and it was the best decision I made. I know I would not be where I am today if it were not for WA. How long have you been with them and how is your success so far?

    • Chris

      That is awesome to see someone who has been with them for so long! I have been with them for about 3 months now! My success is coming along pretty good! I haven’t made any money yet, but my posts are now starting to get ranked and show up in search results! I know as the months go on it will only get better and better!

      Chris

  13. Chris

    Thanks for this incredibly comprehensive review!! There is so much going on at Wealthy Affiliate and it really seems like a community that works together. I have been looking at options to earn online for ages now, but I think this could be the thing for me. I will definitely try out the starter membership and see if I like it. Is there a way to get membership any cheaper than $49 per month?

    • Chris

      I would definitely recommend using them! I am glad you found this review helpful! If you want to pay less than $49 a month you will have to buy the yearly membership which comes out to about $29 a month! That is what I personally did! If you need to, start saving up to get it! Let me know if you have any more questions!

      All the Best,

      Chris

  14. JB

    What a great review! I’ve been trying to determine if WA was a scam or not. There is so much crap out there, but I’m going to give it a try. It seems to have what I am searching, the tutorials, webhosting (I’m so tired trying to set all the basic stuff up), and a community.

    • Chris

      Thanks JB!

      It is definitely worth the money! Just remember you have to stick with it to become successful! It definitely is a learning curve setting everything up the first time! The tutorials and community and web-hosting make it worth it!
      Good luck to you in your success online!

      Chris

  15. TEE TENG

    Thanks for writing this review its provided me with some information I never knew about Affiliate Marketing. I am currently in the search for a opportunity to make money but many programs I have tried have been scams. Good to see that Wealthy Affiliate seems to offer a genuine way to create an online business as that’s something I’m quite interested in after reading this article.

    Just a quick question for a newbie like me how long would it take to make money and how much exactly can you make?

    Thanks,

    Josh

      Hey Joshua!

      I am glad you found this review helpful and insightful! With affiliate marketing you can start to make money within 6 months if you hustle hard. To be safe I would tell yourself you aren’t going to make a dime the first year (that’s the expectation I have set for myself.

      However, once you get the ball rolling you can start to make TONS of money. Michelle Schroder, the creator of the blog “Making Sense of Cents” now earns over $100,000/month after 7 years of working on her blog and growing it!

      Let me know if you have any more questions!

      All the Best,

      Chris

    Hey there chris,

    I have been here a few months and love it. I agree with you about hard work , if you are not willing to put in the time, it will never work. there is just so much that you have to be prepared to engross yourself into. the website, the learning , social media. there is just so much, that it can be over wealming some times. but those are the times to keep pushing through. you are very in depth about what goes on at wealthy affiliate., for anyone who is looking to try it out..

    great post, keep up the good work

      All the Best,

    wealthy affiliate is in a league of its own. I had tried many different home business opportunities and none of them come to anything. 

    Wealthy Affiliate helped me to learn how to build websites just the way it is shown in this review with step by step training.

    The unique way it is taught how to build a website from scratch along with hundreds of other training tutorials available.

    I particularly like the strong community support where I have made many strong contacts around the world.

      Hey Darren!

      Yes all of those are great things! The training is so in-depth. If there isn’t something in the training then there is always someone there to answer a question for ya!

      All the Best,

      Chris

    Great review of  Wealthy Affiliate, the best online platform for affiliate marketers. I’m so glad I joined a year ago, and it didn’t take much thought for me to go Premium the same week I signed up. It’s simply a no-brainer. For just $25.00 a month – take advantage of the Black Friday sale coming up in November – I have all five of my websites hosted in one convenient location. The costing of hosting alone makes a Premium membership worth it. 

    I agree with you that affiliate marketing takes time, patience, and effort. You really have to work it and be consistent, treating it like a business rather than a hobby if you want to succeed.  The certification and boot camp trainings couldn’t be more awesome, and the community support is the best! Thanks for explaining the benefits of Wealthy Affiliate.

    Great article on the insights of Wealthy Affiliate. I have been on the programme for just over three months so far and I have learned so much, including making a little money – not much, but it’s a start. You get so much from the training and coaching from your peers and I feel like i’m constantly learning. There is a lot of work ahead, but I believe WA will get me there sooner. 

    Thanks for sharing!
