If you’ve read my reviews or watch my video reviews you know I’m very very objective about this, so this review is going to get into the good and bad about Wealthy Affiliate, because as much as I love it, I’ve been a member of it for over a decade, it has bad things about it and every company does, so if you want to get the real review on Wealthy Affiliate this is for you.
An overview of the Wealthy Affiliate interface
Wealthy Affiliate, for those of you who don’t know, really if you’re watching this review you do know about it but basically it’s a platform that teaches people how to make an authority website that makes you money by promoting other people’s products. They show you how to create a website, how to get a domain name, how to get free traffic from Google and then how to work with companies like Amazon and eBay etc, etc.
That is their main purpose – is to show people how to create their own website and make money with it using affiliate marketing, and affiliate marketing is just a fancy word for making money by referring people to other things, so chances are you’ve referred people to restaurants with services that you’ve used, but you never got paid for it. With Wealthy Affiliate they teach you how to go about being an affiliate of companies like Amazon and getting paid for referring people to Amazon.
The good thing about Wealthy Affiliate is they allow you to get started for free, they have a free Starter membership and then they also have a premium membership so you have nothing to lose when you actually sign up. Once you get inside they do give you a starter training, so I’m going to go inside and show you what it looks like here.
Once you’ve created your account you have access to training, so the training is here and this is the beginning training, here as a starter membership, which is the free membership – you will have access to this startup membership. getting started the situation here is there are ten lessons and the starter. training, so let’s kind of go through it, it shows you like, you know who Wealthy Affiliate is and their background shows you how to complete your account and set that up, and in understanding how to make money online which I kind of talked about, but they go into details with it and then show you how to choose a niche.
A niche is basically just the topic of your website, the category of the website that you’re going to build and then they’ll show you how to build your own website, set up the website and then get it ready for Google to send you traffic, so they kind of walk you through all the different things, the one of the things that I really do like about Wealthy Affiliate, unlike other programs, is that everything happens within the site. You’re not gonna be bouncing off to another site to learn how to create a website or to buy a domain; they literally have everything built into their system.
Everything is in one place
So as you can see here, there’s a site builder here so you can just build your site right here, you can buy your domain here, the other thing I do like about the community and training is you’ll have videos and then they’ll have some text as well kind of walking you through that stuff.
If you don’t seem to understand you know the text or the videos then you have a discussion right under each of the lessons where you can ask people questions regarding the lesson that you are learning.
If you can’t get a response here there’s also live chat right here which is great so you can talk to people live 24 hours a day all around the world and furthermore, like if you have problems with your website, like technical issues or anything like that, they also have a Help Center where you have site support, so you can go to site support and actually ask the technical folks to help you with a site problem, which is something else that I find unique about Wealthy Affiliate and furthermore if you need additional help you can also contact the person that referred you [Me] and they they will actually help you as well, so as you can see here.
I’m a coach within Wealthy Affiliate. I’m ranked as one of the top ones here because I’ve been here for a while. I’ve helped a lot of people build websites and you know make successful money here.
So, there’s all these different people that you can actually contact that will help you in addition to all the training that you get. There’s other levels here that get into more details – the start a level training is really for people who are, you know, starting out and aren’t premium members. They’re just free starter members and it kind of gives you an overview and walkthrough. Once you want to get into the more nitty-gritty you can become a Premium Member here. so here’s the Premium Membership you have a lot more access to different things you get access to more of the training here, so as you can see here this level one, this is level two, level three, level four, level five and this goes into a lot more details in terms of building your website and making money.
So that’s something that’s made available to Premium Members, and then all these other benefits that you have here that come with a Premium Membership, and it’s $49 a month. The other thing I like about having a Premium Membership is they have these live events here so, although Wealthy Affiliate just cover is mostly building a website and getting free traffic, they also cover various other topics, so if you want to learn about Instagram they do that, if you want to learn about YouTube you can do that and the good thing is they have these weekly courses that happen every Friday, or you can even look at some of the past courses that cover different things, so you know are people actually making money with this program? The reality is yes they are.
Okay, if you look at some of the success stories here, there’s tons of them and if you even go to their dashboard here you’ll find success stories that are happening here, so if I scroll down, so success is happening here at Wealthy Affiliate and you could just keep reading story after story after story of people having success here.
Wealthy Affiliate aren’t just about self-promotion
There’s also a misconception that Wealthy Affiliate is just teaching you how to promote their website. They do have a training about promoting their website if you want to do that, but that’s optional. It’s not required like with certain MLMs ,or other attending training they want you to promote their stuff and that’s what their training is basically about, just promoting their services and their their courses and things like that and that does not happen with Wealthy Affiliate, that’s an optional thing that
you can do.
If you decide to go do the affiliate bootcamp, but this training here, the level one, two, three, four and five, this is really for any niche and they literally show you how to pick your own niche, so that’s a common misconception that I find that people think about Wealthy Affiliate.
That is not accurate, so one of the things that people might complain about is because we have so much training here sometimes
people get a little overwhelmed with this, but again there’s live support and help that can help people walk through that, so that is one of the complaints I’ve I’ve heard from people now, and I totally get that, it just it makes sense but it’s not like there isn’t help, it’s not like you’re getting all these lessons and you just have to figure them out by yourself.
The Wealthy Affiliate BBB rating is A+
Next thing I want to point out to you is that this is there on BBB rating at the time of this review and as you can see here it’s A+ , the reviews you know, tend to be very very positive, but of course there are complaints here right, and a lot of the complaints I’ve read through here are like billing complaints. What ends up happening is we’re wealthy affiliate as a starter member you get to start for seven days totally for free okay? You don’t have to enter a credit card or anything like that it’s free. What ends up happening is then people decide that they’re going to go premium because they offer you a half or a discount on the first month, so your discount will be about nineteen dollars you’re paying for the first month, but after that you’re paying the full full price and they do make that very, very, clear.
But for some reason a lot of people don’t necessarily read (which isn’t surprising) and then when they are charged the following month the full price they’re saying that “oh my god you you guys are scamming me and and you overcharge me”. What’s really happening is that people don’t recognize that this is the first months as discount and that you’re going to be charged a full month afterwards, so those are the complaints I’ve seen with the Better Business Bureau.
Hopefully this kind of gives you some insight into Wealthy Affiliate and you can expect from it so here’s an example of some of the money I’ve made with the sites that I’ve created because of wealthy affiliate so you know thirty thousand dollars here, twenty-one thousand dollars here, and obviously this happened over a course of several months okay, it’s not you know, I didn’t do this yesterday. I’m not gonna lie to you about that but I made pretty good money because of what they’ve taught me here.
So I know, it really does work and that’s the reason why I’m creating this review here so that you have a better insight from someone that’s actually been here for many years.
You’ll still have to put in the time and work
The other thing too is you’re really just gonna have to put in work and time. A lot of times people come here with the mentality that, “oh I’m just gonna just try this for a month and all of a sudden I’m gonna make money” and that’s not going to happen. This is a not a get-rich-quick scheme, you’re going to have to work hard. It is an investment in yourself that will pay you off, you know, months down the line, maybe a year down the line depending on how you apply this.
