What is Wealthy Affiliates For?

What and who is Wealthy Affiliates for? I must admit that WA is not a perfect choice for everyone. Wealthy Affiliate teaches people how to build a business, how to expand a business and take it to the next level. So in one word it teaches you Marketing. If you aren’t willing to learn and to take action then the whole concept of making money online isn’t for you. So who can really benefit from this program?

  • A person who wants to make an extra income to supplement their salary.
  • Stay at home moms who have some free time and are willing to spend it in front of the computer.
  • Students who want to make money to help them pay for their tuition, some college students built 6-figure businesses from their dorm, using Wealthy Affiliate.
  • Business owners who want to get more visibility online.
  • Retired folks who have free time and want to supplement their pension.
  • People who are fed up of 9-to-5 and want to start their own business. Many Wealthy Affiliate members have been able to quit their “day job” to do online marketing full time.

As you can see, WA is good choice for everyone who is seeking to earn money from home, however you must understand that you will have to invest your time and effort in order to make it work. This program will teach you how to BUILD a business – and any business, online or offline requires an investment of time, effort and usually money. The big difference between starting an online business instead of a traditional brick and mortar business is that you do not need a start-up capital to get started online. You do not even need any money to join Wealthy Affiliate, the basic free membership gives you all you need to get started: including 2 free hosted websites, training and all the support you need. What Exactly Do You Get Inside?  Update: Wealthy Affiliate is now FREE to join!


The program has two (2) different membership levels: the basic and the premium. This is really awesome because you can join without spending a single penny, look around, meet some people, create your own websites (hosting included) and see how it goes. If you love it like I do – you will join Premium for ever more benefits or you could still build an online business using your free starter membership, no strings attached. This alone makes WA so much better than any other program or opportunity – there is no risk of losing money to something that might not work. Put your credit card away and get a free membership!

The most valuable benefits of Wealthy Affiliate University (in my opinion) are the step-by-step approach to building a business and the support from Kyle, Carson and many expert members. Most other online programs are lacking the support and the clear action plan. I have tested dozens of different programs over the past 7 years and nothing comes close to the quality of WA.

Overall this training ranks at a very respectable 98%! Most paid programs can’t offer that but here you can get it without spending a dime.


Wealthy Affiliate Earning Potential

I often get this question from new WA members and people who haven’t joined yet: “What is the earning potential with Wealthy Affiliate? How much money can I really make in a year?” There is no specific answer to this question. Some people make a few bucks a month; some make $100,000+ per month. Although there is no exact answer to this question I can tell you this: The amount of money you can earn is directly related to what you do and how you do it. The folks who are highly successful have one thing in common – they followed the training to the dot and they took massive action. Learning how to do something is great but you need to apply this knowledge in order to actually start earning. Don’t take this statement as a rule but if you do go through WA training and build your business the way WA teaches you I don’t see why you can’t make $50,000+ in your first year. Most beginner internet marketers fail online because they do not follow a plan of action, get distracted by new shiny products that promise millions overnight and because they do not take enough action. Wealthy Affiliate will help you with all of it: Provide you with a realistic plan of action, courses that you need to follow and tasks you need to complete. Stay focused and you will be successful.

Make Money Doing What You Love

Although Wealthy Affiliate will teach you different marketing strategies that are very helpful for any kind of business, they do concentrate on affiliate marketing. Affiliate Marketing means that you get paid a commission whenever someone buys a product that you recommend. Most companies offer affiliate programs (Amazon, eBay, Target, Airlines companies, credit card companies, etc.). Since more and more people buy things online instead of going to traditional stores (for obvious reasons) it’s only wise to claim your share of these sales online. What I always loved about WA is that they encourage you to do what you love – this makes running a business a lot more fun and profitable.For example, if you love video games – you should start a website that talks about video games and helps people make a purchasing decision. If you love motorcycles – you can start a website that talks about motorcycles, motorcycle accessories and parts to make your bike better. On this website you can tell people about all of those awesome products and tell them where they can buy these products (Amazon, etc.) and whenever people make a purchase – you get a commission! You do not need to take care of the warehouse storage, shipping, payments, customer service – you simply help people find the products they already want and you get paid for it. This is by far my favorite business model ever.   Now, don’t be scared, Wealthy Affiliate will provide every single detail you need to know in order to do all of this properly. Once again, simply follow the step-by-step training and ask questions whenever something is unclear – the WA community is there to help you through every step.

Wealthy Affiliate Community and Support

The community aspect is also something that I really love and something other programs fail to provide. If you have difficulty with anything in the process, many members will able to help you instantly in WA Live Chat but what I love most is that people share their ideas and experiences. Listen to these experiences, learn from other people’s mistakes and brainstorm with others! Whenever I need an opinion on a new website I am creating or a new article I am writing – WA members are always there to share their opinions with me. The whole feel of an active community is simply amazing and Wealthy Affiliate is the only place where I have found such experience. There are many other online forums and programs that talk about making money online but whenever you ask a simple question many users will reply with: “Dude, this stupid question has been asked many times before – just google it!” – You will not get this kind of reply on WA. Wealthy Affiliate is a learning center so there are no stupid questions, every question is important and people will try to answer it as well as they can. However if you do not feel comfortable asking a question (don’t be shy, just ask!) you could simply look through the resources and questions other people asked – I can almost guarantee you will find your answer within minutes.

You Don’t Need to Believe Me!

Hundreds of Wealthy Affiliate members are sharing their success stories with the community. To be honest, I really enjoy reading these stories as they are very motivational! Check out why so many people choose to join Wealthy Affiliates!!!

Of course, success is never guaranteed. One of my best things about Wealthy Affiliate is that they never promise it. Not everyone who goes to law school will become a lawyer.  Not everyone who who goes into modelling is going to become the next big thing.  Not everyone who is going to be a singer gets noticed.   It takes time and dedication, and your success is dependent on you.

That being said, here  are just few examples of Wealthy Affliate members who have succeeded.


“My experience leading up to finding Wealthy Affiliate… I assume was pretty much the same as most people who are determined to build a successful online business.

I spent years drifting from one ‘get rich scheme' to the next and when my hard earned money was not being taken from under my nose, I was left with very little to show in return for the mass amounts of effort that I was putting into it.

The problem I had was that 50% of the programs were nothing more than hyped up scams, and the others, though being honest people behind them lacked in either the fundamentals or in overall completeness of the products or training that I was paying for.

Out of frustration in trying to figure out if I was being scammed yet again by another product, I stumbled across a review that all of a sudden was telling me that the product I was looking at was good, BUT that it was NOT recommended by the writer. The writer, a WA member was urging me to look at Wealthy Affiliate first.

 This stumped me completely… He was turning down a high value sale in return for one that would make him pennies in comparison…. I had not seen this before… Why???

Could it be that I had just found the first truly honest person doing a review in all my years of searching?

What did he know that I didn't?

Needless to say, I jumped from his Wealthy Affiliate review straight into the free membership… Another few and far between thing in the online community. A product that was so confident they would let me try it for free.

2 days after joining wealthy affiliate, I couldn't be more excited as I could finally see all of the pieces of a puzzle I had been searching for all those years… So simply falling into place.

It finally made sense… And I was not once told that I ever had to promote WA in order to make money online… I had the choice to build my business on anything I was passionate about.

I went premium…

And BOY! was my mind blown!

All of the information that had been fed to me in impossible dribs and drabs over the years AND HEAPS MORE in one structured and easy to follow, learn while you're applying it program.

No upsells, no advertising, no hype… Just a community of amazing people all with common goals and EVERYONE eager to help one another!

By following the training, a few weeks later I had my first free sign ups…. AND then…

At around the 2.5 month mark for me… It happened!

MY FIRST PAID REFERRAL… And the dude was so excited to tell me that he had signed up through MY referral link that I didn't even know what to say to him in return 😉 but I could see the true potential behind Wealth Affiliate at this point…

And from there, the sky was the limit! WASH, RINSE, REPEAT 🙂

I had done the groundwork, now it was about upkeep and reaping the rewards.

Best part for me about Wealthy Affiliate, I get to promote products that I truly believe in… and people can see this when you are talking about the topic with them. You are passionate about it.

So for anyone reading this who is looking to build an online business, please save yourself the time searching any further… You have found what you have been looking for all this time… And SO much more!

Take it for a free test drive and decide for yourself.

The entire community is here to help you along the way, all you gotta do is ask 😉

Wishing you all of the best and looking forward to hearing from you!
