Discovering Wealthy Affiliate

I have been unable to start, because I never found the training that would show me how and where.

Who Is Wealthy Affiliate For?

Anyone can do this… Stay at home Moms, baby boomers, passive income seekers, minimum wage workers, home bound individuals, people with a mortgage, retirees… every kind of person in the world !

No really, every day thousands of people go online and join a program that they hope will teach them how to make money on the internet.

I’m building a great community of friends here at WA, all creating websites and finding the success they seek. I hope you will join us.

Refreshing Approach to Website Hosting and Care

Here is a chart to show what Wealthy Affiliate offers to starter, and premium members. I find this chart very impressive.

All the features you get for the monthly fee of 49.00 dollars? Unreal!

Website builders like Wix, Gator, they host just the website for that fee. With WA you are getting a lot more for your money, all in one spot.

Wealthy Affiliate takes care of every  setup, and all the little technical details we know nothing about. That is a feeling of relief, I can tell you. You want to launch websites, get your message out there, set up your affiliate links to the products you want to list on your new site, not be stopped and hung up with wee details you don’t know how to deal with.

Also consider, WA offers 50 websites, all covered under the monthly subscription cost. That means, 50 websites completely taken care of. All we as members do, is build and maintain.

Do you know my first try with another teaching program, I first went to Go Daddy, purchased a domain. Then I went to Hostgator to host that domain. Then I went to Wix to begin building a website for that domain. Every step was money. For the domain and hosting, I paid near one hundred and fifty dollars for the year. Then the website on top of that was another fifteen to thirty dollars per month, for the one website!

Can you see the Value of Wealthy Affiliate? In a regular program it can cost you $150 and up, for one website! Here we pay $359 for the year, literally less than a $1 a day, and get 50 websites !! with domain –  and hosting –  and setup – taken care of.

To me, understanding the steps needed to start in the online world was like seeing the light at the end of a tunnel.  . Without the basic foundation of a website, you cannot do business on the internet. To learn how to create that foundation has been a tremendous journey so far.

Step by step training is so important for the person just starting out. I believe you have found the perfect vehicle for your business.

  2. Hello Kathleen,

    Just like you, I’ve been trying long and hard to find a way to make money on the internet, and I’ve come across several reviews of Wealthy Affiliate, already.

    At this point in my journey, I’m starting to want to give Wealthy Affiliate a try. At this point, what I think I need the most is concrete help in getting me started. You mentioned help towards the end of your article, but please could you elaborate? 

    You wrote: “If you encounter a problem, the teacher, and indeed the whole community, will help you get it solved so that you may continue steadily towards your goals.” But how quickly do you get help? In the past I’ve been frustrated with promises for help, but just to stay stuck in my problems. Thanks, Phil 

    • Hi Phil, thanks for reaching out to me!

      I can relate to your problem of getting help on something when you need it. I once spent scads of money on a program, and just ended up frustrated, and crying my eyes out. I quit the training because I could not understand, and had no person to talk to that knew how to fix the problem, no expert that could calmly tell me what to do. Your on your own, and have no recourse but to stand there shouting at your computer and stomping a foot.

      If you joined WA through me, I would most definitely be a mentor to you, and be just a wee click away to answer your questions, or find the answer for you. We also have live chat, with members asking questions and getting them answered instantly, in real time. That live chat runs 24/7. Working on an article at 2am? need a question answered? fire it out over live chat and see who can help… or who’s awake at that hour lol

      We also have access to the founders of WA, Kyle and Carson. They truly can answer ANY question you have, so if you cannot get a satisfactory answer from the community, pose it to one of them in the lesson forum, or write them a personal email. They will likely answer within a day or two, at most.

      I advise you to give WA a try. It’s free! No cc needed, just get in there and check it out! Once inside, looking at the training, you will see what I mean when I say, you have finally found the teaching you’ve been looking for!!

      I’ll be waiting to hear what you think of WA!


  3. Great review of WA. I couldn’t agree more!

    I am a WA member and what I love the most is the community in it. Everyone is so active and very helpful. All of my questions so far are being answered. The courses within WA is so detailed and if you are a starter or just a newbie in this online marketing industry, the step by step guide to create and grow your online business will definitely help! 

    All the best! Cheers!

    • Hey, thanks for the comments!

      WA all the way! such a great community, everyone works together to keep negativity out, and that really makes a difference. Positive, uplifting and helpful. I feel like I’m making friends in this community…online friends! it’s pretty cool. 

      Learning so much through WA’s step by step guide… I made this website! and that also, is pretty cool


  4. Thanks for this article! I’ve been looking for reviews on them however yours is the most detailed one I’ve seen. I’m still on the starter version and thinking of going premium on yearly? I like the idea how you can develop your career working on the starter one as well! There’s already a lot to understand and apply to running an actual online business on the starter alone, but now I’d like to level up my progress, thanks for sharing!

    • Hi Laureen Thanks for your comment. Wealthy Affiliate really is the best  I spent two weeks on the starter program, and learned so much I knew I had to continue. Like when you come upon the perfect trail through a meadow, that you just have to explore, I wanted to see where WA would take me.

      Every day since has been fun and rewarding on many levels. Lots of personal growth with this adventure! 

      I would certainly recommend going yearly! at $359, it’s less than a dollar a day! then your not worrying about payments and such, you have made the commitment, and you can focus on building an incredible  website and online business!

  5. A very honest and comprehensive review about Wealthy affiliate. I also joined wealthy affiliate through searching for a programme that works. I was never referred but started with the free membership. To me, that was a winner as I had nothing to lose. Through that free sign up I was soon able to see the benefits and did not need any convincing to go premium. 

    You have really covered the benefits of WA, the free hosting, the training, the price compared to other affiliate programmes,  the support and who WA is for. 

    • Thank you! Good to hear that I covered things well, and made a comprehensive picture of WA. This is a platform that is really truly awesome in so many ways, teaching, website hosting, support, research tools, and more!

      I love the Wealthy Affiliate training style, do you?

  6. WOW Kathleen you have given me a picture of my bright future with WA.

    I can relate to searching for the right system with affordable training. I have lost money and mostly time that I cant get back using other online offers. Then I to came across WA. Hello and Yeah thank you for the perfect opportunity. I am also a baby boomer BTW.

    I love what I see in the  beginning of your website. BAM a beautiful outdoor picture. Makes me want to go camping and fishing. I love the outdoors but try to stay away from Bears and Sharks, anything that can outrun, out climb and outswim you not for me.

    Nice job on the website. Makes you look like a pro that’s been doing this for years. 

    • Thanks Mike, for your awesome comment !!

      A bright future with Wealthy Affiliate is what I’m experiencing! 😀

      Sharks! bears! stay away from those critters for sure lol

  7. I love Wealthy Affiliate and I am a massive fan. However, I do believe that many people start it thinking this is their get rich quick solution to life. It is not. It requires hard and consistent work, and even then it can take ages to actually see results. That being said if you are serious about it, it is the best place to be and it has the best support available. The community is amazing! 

    • HI Hollie, thanks for your comment!

      WA is not a get rich quick thing, only through lots of hard work and consistent effort will commissions start to roll in- after a number of months, I believe. Which is amazing when placed beside a traditional business, that can take a lot longer to get going, think restaurant…In my opinion its all about studying the lessons consistently, working on your websites, applying what you learned, and writing lots and lots !

      The community is amazing, I agree !
