What Is Wealthy Affiliate All About? – My 2019 Review

Wealthy Affiliate What?

So if you’re like me, you’re probably wondering what Wealthy Affiliate is all about. Well Wealthy Affiliate, or WA for short, is like an online university for people who want to learn how to become affiliate marketers. Affiliate marketing is when you promote other businesses to help them out and earn commissions. Commissions, as in moolah baby!

Note: this post contains affiliate links, but it doesn't affect you in anyway

With WA You Can Learn How To…

1. Make your own website – you’ll get to choose a domain name and customize how your site looks using a theme

2. Create content – discover how to write engaging articles as well as make them visually appealing

3. Get traffic – understand what makes people visit your website, and how to promote it socially

4. Earn money – get conversions on programs and products you decide to talk about

Does WA Actually Work?

Yes, yes it does. It doesn’t work for everyone, but it does work for a lot people. There are many success stories in the WA community as proof. Try these on for size:

Who Is WA For?

This program is for anyone and everyone to try!

If you’d like to…

– create your own space online. Somewhere you could express your likes and dislikes

– help others. Assist those who follow or share the same passion

– learn some internet lingo. You’ll understand what SEO, keywords, and niches means aaaaand know how to take advantage of them

– meet lots of people (mainly online). The WA community is filled with all kinds of people from all over the world

Then this could be for you!

What’s The Training Like?

Wealthy Affiliate’s training is very thorough. Every course is split into lessons and every lesson is divided into tasks. On top of that, almost every lesson has a video that shows how to complete the tasks. All of the videos are narrated by Kyle, one of the company’s owners. He’s pretty cool. I mean don’t expect like Morgan Freeman quality narrating, but Kyle is super smart at what he does which is helping people ‘make it’ online.

Don’t Get Carried Away Though

You won’t earn money overnight. You may not even be able to earn anything until after a year in. It all depends on how much effort you put into completing the training and so on.

Think of Wealthy Affiliate as a side job that you’re interning for. You won’t be earning a pay cheque right away, but you will learn a lot and gain experience. Then maybe one day you will actually get hired and start earning some compensation. If you’ve watched The Office before, you’d be Ryan in this scenario haha.

Try It Out For Yourself

It’s completely free to sign up and get started with WA. You never have to upgrade if you don’t want to. Just to warn you though, there will be pop ups that will offer you a premium membership. There’s no expiration date on a free membership though, so it’s completely up to you to decide.

A couple benefits to upgrading:

1. Live Help – with live help you can ask a question in chat and almost instantly get an answer. Great thing about this community, there’s always people active

2. More Websites – you can own up to 50 different websites if you like, instead of just 2

Last but not least

3. Extra Training – the training you get for free is enough to get started, but if you want to learn more on how to drive traffic to your website (for example) the premium training is perfect

If you’ve got any questions, leave em down below and I’ll be sure to get back to you.

  3. Thank you for this review. I think the best thing about Wealthy Affiliate is the training. If you were to leave the platform at any time, for whatever reason, you would have learned so much which sets you up for life. The membership allows you to develop all the basic online skills you need for your career. What is also a big plus is that you do it all with support at every step of the way. 

    1. No problem. That’s so true. I have learned a lot from WA that I never would have learned without it. Yes, the support is great too. Thank you for your comment!

  4. This is great review about wealthy affiliate! Sometime ago a friend recommended wealthy affiliate to me and I was so skeptical because so many programs I have been involved in eventually failed me. This gave me a second thought to look for a wealthy affiliate review. I was so satisfied after reading 15 articles talking about wealthy affiliate, they erased my fear and I took the bull head on and I joined wealthy affiliate. This is why I place so much emphasis on wealthy affiliate, their training is world class status, support from members and owners were so superb, and finally you achieve your dream cost effectively.
    If someone needs to learn affiliate marketing in detail, that person needs wealthy affiliate as a guide. All in all, wealthy affiliate is simply the best. We are waiting for more people to come on board.

    1. Thank you! Happy to hear you gave WA a chance, and are loving it. I agree with everything you’ve said. Thank you so much for your comment 🙂

  5. Thanks for the great overview of WA.  I’m actually already a member and I love it.

    The training and hosting are top-notch but the main benefit I get out of WA is the community.  Live Chat, blog posts withing the WA platform and the member created trainings are so awesome.

    To anyone reading this post, do yourself a favor and just sign up for the free account.  You’ll be amazed at all Wealthy Affiliate has to offer and the only thing it will cost you is the time to take a look.  You can stay on a free, Starter membership indefinitely if you want.

  6. This is a good summary of what wealthy affiliate offers and I like how you provided examples of people that have earned commissions using wealthy affiliate. I have yet to get to that point but hopefully one day I will and when it does happen I will have learned a lot along the way. Is this your favorite online program for making money?

    1. Thank you. Ya I like to use those examples as motivation. I hope you get there someday to. Yes this is definitely my favourite online program for making money. There is a lot of potential that can come from trying this program, and I’m determined to fill mine.

  7. Excellent review of an excellent platform. I might be a little biased as I am a proud member of Wealthy Affiliate, but it’s always lovely to see people love it as much as I do. I’m glad you pointed out it doesn’t happen overnight. There are so many misconceptions about online business these days. Thanks for the post!

    1. Thank you! Happy that you caught that, I tried to emphasize it. I appreciate all you’ve said, thank you for your time!

  8. This is a very thorough overview of what WA has to offer. I like the way you laid it all out. As online business opportunities go, I absolutely believe affiliate marketing is the best path to pursue. It’s easier to set up a website than most people think, provided you have adequate training. That’s one thing WA is very good at. I’m still blown away at how they have all these new webinars each week with even MORE training that you can actively participate in live. You really can’t beat what they have to offer. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thank you! I agree, it is easier than most people think. That’s true too, always new training being posted. Thank you for your comment!

  9. Thank you very much for this review. I have heard a lot about this platform and thought I should do my own research. I am glad to have stumbled upon your review as it has helped shed more light to what Wealthy Affiliate really is, and how it works.

    I am also glad that one can get started for free, at least with that, I can get to test drive it and see if it’s going to work out for me..


  10. Hi Calista

    This is a really good review (especially compared with so many others I’ve seen and reviewed). It’s simple, direct and short. 🙂

    When I describe to friends how this system works, it seems pretty close to how you’ve presented it. Build a website, get visitors, sell stuff, make money. And it’s not like I have to sell Amway and hold inventory.

    WA, as you’ve pointed out, has great training and community engagement, so the energy and motivation stays pretty high.

    Well done.


    1. Oh thank you so much 🙂 I did try and keep it to the point, so I’m glad you appreciated that. I agree with everything else you said. Thank you for your time!

  11. Hello CD Queen,

    I really enjoyed your review of Wealthy Affiliate! You have a natural way of writing that comes across easily to the reader and is very friendly. You explained what Wealthy Affiliate has to offer in clear detail. 

    I like how Wealthy Affiliate is here to help us understand what it takes to succeed in the online world of affiliate marketing. I also like that it is something anyone can do, at any hour of the day when it best suits them to do so. 

    Also the cost is very reasonable when you consider all the benefits WA provides us to help build our websites and businesses.

    I thank you for this post! Have a great day!

    Proud papa of two,


    1. Oh that’s very sweet of you to say, thank you! That’s a good point. I forgot to add that it is like a work at your own pace sorta thing, which I really enjoy. I agree, I think the cost is pretty reasonable. Thank you for your comment!

  12. Dear Calista,

    Thanks a lot for the very thorough and comprehensive review post.

    Since 2008 I was trying different make money online programs and products. To name a few… Ptc, Gpt, Surveys, Captcha typing, Email reading, Ad posting, Transcription, Data entry, Virtual assistant, Tele caller etc., I nearly lost $4000 trying different programs and projects.

    In September 2016 I came across Wealthy Affiliate and I did my research for one month. On November 2016 I joined WA but I was skeptical and I am afraid because of my previous bad experiences.

    To cut the long story short…

    I am still with WA and Since December 2017 I am a full-time Affiliate Marketer and Blogger working from home. In my experience WA is the best training platform to learn about earning money online. It has helped 1000’s of people including myself to reach my dream which is working from home and being my own boss.

    Much Success!


    1. Oh wow, that sounds terrible. I’m so glad you found WA though and gave it a chance. Way to go on making this full-time, that’s great! Thank you for your comment!

  13. I found your review informative but not boring. (So many of them are) I read a lot of reviews because I don’t want to get into something that isn’t right for me, but with the free trial, I can’t go wrong. I also now know what affiliate marketing is in a nutshell without all the big words and concepts I have no idea about the meaning. SEO’s are a little scary if you understand what I mean.
    You did this in such a way I can see where the training would work even for me. (I don’t know much about all this stuff).
    Would this be something that I can do? I don’t really even know how to work a spreadsheet

    1. Oh thank you! That’s true, can’t go wrong with a free trial. Yes, that makes sense. This would definitely be something you could try. The training is so thorough that anyone could follow it. Thank you for your comment!

  14. I’m so happy to see the benefits of Wealthy Affiliate being shared! I have been looking for opportunities that allow me to work from home and make a sustainable income for many years. I have tried several programs and I have lost a lot of money in the process. Thankfully I ran across WA about a month ago and decided to give it a try. BEST decision I ever made! I have been able to accomplish more in the last month than I have in all my time online as far as growing an online business is concerned. The training is phenomenal and the community is top notch, I love it! Please keep spreading the word about this great platform – I know it’s changed my life for the better!

    1. I’m so happy to hear you found WA and are loving it! I agree, the training and community are like no other. Thank you so much for your time and comment!
