Wealthy Affiliate Review – Insane Bonuses Inside

Apr 2, 2015

They say …”Turn any Passion into a Successful Affiliate Marketing Business”…

I’m examining in depth every feature of this community to discover if this promise is real

Everything Related to Wealthy Affiliate

Is Wealthy Affiliate Truly a University as their Members Call?

Before Joining Wealthy Affiliate

Prior to the main review, I sure believe that it would be better to give you some background. If you are one of those who got spammed or fooled or used … in the online marketing field then I indisputably know how it feels because I have been an internet victim too. I was quite impressed by the modern “get rich quick” scheme that all of these fake gurus offered.

This is the number #1 method they use to attract and manipulate people that looking to work online. Did you ever pay in advance in order to participate in a promising and luxury program?…just like I did?

It was like the end of the world when it happened. I was full of anger along with confusion, how can I lose money just like that?
I was screaming at myself. And it was not only about money…

The time I consumed…time is not counting?

All the hopes and the desire to succeed, all of that were gone …hopefully temporarily. I never gave up, I knew deep down that there was something alive, there are 1000’s of companies trying to promote and sell their products…I was positive in finding the decent ones. So I gathered my strength and continued in searching for real online making money possibilities.

And someday I was reading a review about an American marketing company that I had been a member in the past.

The reviewer definitely was telling the truth because everything he was stating reminded mine experiences from those days.And that kept me on reading through the article. Eventually, he was claiming that he was making money through internet marketing and highlighted the above Wealthy Affiliate community as his top recommended place for someone to get started in online business at no costs.

I was very skeptical at this time..but I knew he was right regarding the other company he was reviewing, so he had a big point.

I decided to check this one out and promised myself to leave in any case of an undercover scam attempt. And I signed up for the free account.

Wealthy Affiliate Review 2015

First day in Wealthy Affiliate Community

When I logged in I took a look at the main page which prompts to forums alike style. There was a Live Chat section, a website builder tool and other menus with courses. That first impression was really nice so I set up my profile with a few words about me
and then I took the green (beginners) course indicator to see what’s next.

A personal Welcome to the Wealthy Affiliate Forum

Well, well I thought I’ve heard all this before. Everybody claims a warm welcome…blah, blah…blah. It was saying “anyone can achieve success from working online”

sure I accept that’s what I am still looking for but all I do is falling to scam after scam.

The post continued …”every start can be difficult” – I know …

…”you don’t need any experience at all in getting started online” – oh really? and who is gonna teach me? I whispered

…”success is not an event” the author moved on….”Is very accumulative and everything you do from now on will contribute to your future success”

Oops..!!…that last statement really made me change my point of view.At this time I was waiting for something like this

..stick to our program and in the next days or weeks, you will be earning more than 2000 / month…

Moreover, there was a video tutorial about the making money process.I was expecting quite the same repetition of general “low value” information like the other companies and organizations I associated with.Colored graphics expressing wealth and status, enhanced photographs with smiling people earning 20,000/month with a check in their proud hands, elegant women driving luxury cars

and promises,…promises but only promises. Don’t you hate it when you just run into such fake pledges?

Came to my surprise that this video was an interpretation of the following 4 step diagram, an analysis of the whole process of getting money online.

a) choose anything you like or a passion of yours (the niche)

b) build your website

c) get ranked in search engines

d) earn revenue from the traffic.

The poster promising that all of these steps will be covered in detail through their education platform and he was encouraging us to ask questions and to take action on what we learn.You see I was waiting for a well-covered tactic of something like

..”buy our products in the special offer of 70% discount within the next hour and become a member of a giant, be a millionaire”.

Instead, there was a real step-by-step education course, divided into sections and subcategories.I slipped over to see if it’s fake, incomplete or sketchy…NO…It was full of valuable information, documents with tips, advice, videos, charts, presentations, a very “in deep knowledge”.It was exploring the ways can someone benefit using his own WordPress Blog/Site.

Marketing secrets to getting organic traffic, extended lessons in keyword analysis and tools, support, discussions, live seminars via the web browser …and much more.

I felt that something different exists in here

Next days in Wealthy Affiliate 

Continued normally with my training, I joined several discussions, commented on older and new posts while interacting with other members in the Live Chat room. Everybody assured me that I made the right choice by joining this community and they answered
all my questions with pleasure. I did not expect to be answered so quickly.

The place was alive or was it just an illusion I was having hypnotized by the devil marketing skills of the author?

Wealthy Affiliate Training

There are 5 certification courses each one of them divided into 10 lessons. Every lesson includes both written and video material with exclusive information on internet marketing and how can someone build an affiliate marketing website in order to attract online traffic and therefore promote other companies products and grant commissions. The lessons are followed by tasks you need to complete.

1) Online Entrepreneur Certification

2) Building Your Own Traffic Website

3) Making Money Online

4) Mastering Social Engagement

5) Achieve Maximum Success Through Content Creation

All the standard education courses are build from the owners of the site Kyle and Carson, who do present a unique learning method. Every chapter is analyzing “in deep” and not just scratching the surface like the most methods that exist today on the net. The videos are motivational, easy to understand and full of valuable and unique information and they do cover every aspect they claim.

Classrooms within the Wealthy Affiliate Campus

The Classrooms are the secret weapon of this community. Inside you can ask specialized questions according to your problem and experienced members of the forum post tutorials, updates, and their own training to cover the above questions of the newer members.An interactive part of the community which comes as a solution to modern internet marketing. When you build a website for the first time it is essential to be guided by experts and not just left with the information alone.

1) Getting Started

2) WA Affiliate Program – one of the best in the market, not only because of the high commissions the WA members get but for the knowledge and the support you receive from experts in this area.

3) Keyword, Niche and Market Research – How the search engines operate, what is happening when people search on the net, how to get targeted traffic

4) Everything WordPress – Tutorials, videos, articles on WordPress platform, plugins, operation

5) Authoring & Writing Content – One of the most important subjects.Because in the modern marketing era, Google, search engines, and people are looking for Quality content and not just websites or landing pages focused only on sales.

6) Search Engine Optimization – Very in-depth section again. I think they cover everything and they follow all the latest Google’s updates and guidelines.

7) Social Engagement & Marketing – Plenty of information on every social platform

8) Website Development & Programming – One very important subcategory. It’s not only the marketing education that matters when you build a website you need further training. I had all my questions covered.

9) Local Marketing – Another approach to marketing sales targeting local companies and helping them rank in the engines.

10) Video Marketing – Undoubtedly, the video is today’s leading and favorite format of material.

11) Email Marketing – Email marketing still is the king, especially for companies with a lot of subscribers

12) Pay Per Click Marketing – When you pay for ads that get clicked.Extended training as always.

13) The Wealthy Affiliate Platform – Everything that concerns the forum function

How It Works – Support

Let me show you how this website really operates and how easy is for anyone to use the tools provided.

The most important factor is that everybody contributes.

Everybody share knowledge and useful tips. There are 100’s experienced marketers that blog and post on a daily basis about anything that has to do with this business. Some of them offer tutorials or videos or live seminars. Don’t forget the fact that the overall active population of the community is 10,000’s of people.So I think you have a better and clear point of view now

Another very important factor that leads Wealthy Affiliate to the top is the live interaction of both the co-owners of the site.

Not only you can send them private messages in which you are getting decent responses but you track them …in the Live Chat hanging out, offering information and even fix problems that members deal with their websites. Both of them are highly experienced marketers that started out 15 years ago.

Now let me ask you …how often do you have the chance to speak directly with the owner of a forum? And ask him for personal advice?

Wealthy Affiliate Tools

The main general search tool that is accessible on every page makes the navigation a handy game. You feel lost, don’t know where to find your answer? You simply name your phrase and the tool provides all the available content according to your search. You feel lazy or too tired to search on your own? You post a simple question and then answers coming from other members in minutes or in the worst case hours. In other communities, you would have to wait at least a day or days just to be answered.

The Keyword research tool that is disposable supply statistics and data in seconds. A must-have tool in marketing operations which you can’t find in other Training Forums. There is a save data function as well in case you store information for future references.

The Link Tracking …who does not want to know which links operate better? It’s analyzing every link you have so you can interfere with your campaigns.

It’s a TRY before you BUY “product”. Don’t you like it when you have the chance to try something before having to spend your hard earned money?

Wealthy Affiliate BONUS – Discount

If you like to check this place out you can follow this link directly to my personal profile within WA community and I will be welcoming you there with some startup tips that can help you navigate inside and I will be in touch in cases you need further help.
You might also wanna check out a special offer that exists today. If you like this place and you want to move on in building your business the premium membership for the first month has a 59 % discount reaching only the $19.The only thing you have to do is sign up within your first week.

I know that all of these may sound to you like “too good to be really true” but I dare you to confront me on this review.

The most important factor of all. Wealthy Affiliate is not promising Success to No-one. It’s clearly stated that you have to work really hard to make it happen. They only provide the education, the tools, hosting, and interaction.

Wealthy Affiliate Websites

WA uses the WordPress platform. There are about 3000 different modern themes to choose (premium), starter includes around 20. There are hundreds of free plugins that can be installed and activated instantly. And there is a bunch of video tutorials, especially for WordPress operation. Additionally, the auto-update enclosed function keeping your site up to date. My site is using this platform as well.

You can check on your own. It’s Free and takes a minute to complete

 I enclose a Video where you can check how easy is to Setup your Website with SiteRubix

Wealthy Affiliate Technical Support Team

Almost forgot the 24/7 tech support team that deals with every problem and offers daily or day after day backups. And they are very fast at what they do. I remember a day that I run into an issue with my website settings and they resolved the problem within 40 mins without bothering me at all. And the hosting service is unbelievable, the websites are running at high speed, and their security platform ensures no need for using extra security plugins on your website, everything is covered on their end.

And that is something that is very important and only a few hosts can deliver such high-level services.

Wealthy Affiliate Membership and Costs

FREE starter membership in Wealthy Affiliate (what’s included)

This type of membership is absolutely a must for every newbie out there in the online marketing world. It costs only 0$, a well rounded zeroNo hidden or spammy go-throughs, no credit card details, nothing suspicious.

The first 7 days of starter account is exactly as the premium but after that period you lose the live chat, the blog/post creation, and the commenting privilege but that can be replaced by using properly the general search tool so anyone can find an answer that had been posted.Also, the post and the blogs of other members still stay accessible so any question can be covered because there are 10,000’s of posts and blogs inside

PREMIUM Membership in Wealthy Affiliate – Pricing – Hosting

This type of membership stands for serious people looking to earn money in the online arena or those who want to raise a current business to sublime levels. Additionally, with the starter account, you have access to live video classes, all the classrooms, all the themes in WordPress, all certification courses, the communicating platform, and DOUBLE referral commissions. Also unlimited keyword research plus weekly keyword lists and extra bonus materials in pdf or other formats

Wealthy Affiliate Complaints – The Bad Things about this Community

There are some bad things inside WA as it happens with all the communities and networks.No place can be perfect, that is a dominant rule. WA is huge and people are posting every day on various internet marketing topics. Just as for every network people often use the tools provided for their own sake and promotion.

While the majority of the population is active and helping each other there are members that only seek to expose their business. Other members are annoying usually distracting the forum operation sometimes even contacting others through personal messages asking for feedback or to visit their websites in exchange for something.

A small minority of people post irrelevant questions or blogs in the wrong places asking for things unrelated to the actual content. Most of the times these members are new and are eager to find answers for their problems while they could use the Live Chat function which is the ideal place to ask gently for instant help or the Classrooms for advanced queries.

The moderators always keep the forum spam free and remove content that does not follow the rules but in such large forum, this process takes time. Other members are concerned about their WA rankings and although that does not affect their website improvement they keep on blogging almost daily. But it’s a free community, anybody can be self – expressed.

Moreover, there are some common complaints from new members that obviously seek for quick results. They expect financial success in weeks or in a few months but as the modern internet world consists of million websites in every niche success is inevitably delayed.

Long gone are the days where someone was publishing a website and in days this website was attracting a huge amount of online traffic. The competition nowadays is enormous and only to get ranked in the search engines takes time. So keep that in mind when you start an online business.

Offline businesses are no different, the competition is very high and to differentiate yourself and make people trust you needs time. Those members that are seeking quick money often react, whine and blame WA despite the fact that the training clearly mentions the exact opposite.

Another ordinary malfunction is watching new members using Live Chat only for bombarding people with technical or other questions without using the search operation first to access the community’s knowledge.

Being a new member inside WA sometimes you will feel overwhelmed but as you participate and get informed soon you can filter such members out and in the worst cases, you can unfollow them totally ignoring their actions.

The Truth about Wealthy Affiliate Exposed

Definitely, Wealthy Affiliate is a Real University, in which you are not only learning Affiliate MarketingfreelancingeCommercedropshipping, local marketing, pay-per-click marketing, email marketing, social media marketing, video marketing, and so much more but you take action from the very beginning to create your own business on the web. I have been participating in dozens of training portals before I joined WA and afterward so…I can assure you that you won’t find so much information elsewhere. And there are NO Up-Sells whatsoever.

The Training is comprehensive, the Tools are unique, the Support is enormous, the Live Chat is a great resource for instant help and the participation of the owners set the level too high for an internet marketing forum. The Certification Courses that created from the owners are strictly following the Google and other search engines guidelines, are updating frequently and simply cannot be compared with other communities and the Classrooms provide authoritative knowledge on certain marketing areas.

The active interaction with high experienced marketers will grow your skills and the Live Webinars will mature your actions. The Hosting Service is fast and secure and the Support Tech Team is there 24 / 7…The Price is fair and is much cheaper than other similar networks. A totally legit opportunity that if you take it seriously then it can lead to your online success. What else you should need?

The vast majority of the members are helpful and acting by the rules but there are some members as I already discussed that cause some malfunctions to the forum. Most of the times these are new members anxious to get fast results ignoring others and the common goal of the community, Having that said it will take some time to recognize them but you can’t let that stop you from trying this great online opportunity.

WMS RANKING of WA: 9.5 /10.I give a 9.5 because If I was giving 10 …then it would mean perfect but perfect for me does not exist.

Wealthy Affiliate – Review 2019

Everything You Need to Know

You may also wanna check out the FAQ section I prepared especially for this community after repeated researches and discussions with 100’s of people

Frequently Asked Questions about Wealthy Affiliate – Who Is It For?

“is this program legit and/or you recommend it?”

…Absolutely it is a totally legit program. You are not obliged to pay or to buy anything. Besides you can use the free starter membership and see if suits you. I have not stopped recommending it from the day I started.

“I am a student and also working at the same time.C an I be successful if only working for 1-2 hours daily?”

… The fact you are student and working will even be an advantage for you because you don’t expect fast results. At this point, a lot of people fail and eventually, they give up because building such an online business takes time and good results come to those who WAIT….just like any kind of business out there. In your case, I suggest you check it out and take your time, don’t rush.

” I own an industrial product and want to promote it. Shall WA help me in making it happen?”

…Whether you own a product or you just stand in the middle as a re-seller WA is a unique tool to give you all the HIGH information
you need to target the market, attract and engage with your audience and therefore to sell and build a trusted line of followers and clients. But as I always mention don’t push results, it takes some time unless you are an expert in marketing and sales.

“I am just a normal guy who retired lately and I want something to do.I was thinking of writing a blog that can talk to people like me and share experiences. Is it also possible to earn any additional revenue from that activity? Although money is not my first priority..maybe I can help my son who got married”

There is no doubt. This is what I always say to people.And not only to retired that want to express their energy. This platform is a must for everyone. If you are passionate about something and you feel you wanna write down your thoughts you can use a blog/site and with the appropriate knowledge and community’s support, this underestimated detail can become a returning profit in the future.

Who does not need some extra income?…Whether you are a student, or a divorced mom with children, a businessman, an office employee, a blogger, a doctor ..”WA”.. can only be an added skill to your present capabilities.

..”I already have a business running and I own a website that I paid for but I am not really sure if I got benefited much of it. Is there something wrong with the site and/or how WA can be any of use for me?”

…WA can really help you at this point. You won’t have to change your website but by attending the courses and partake in the classrooms and interacting with fellow entrepreneurs you will be getting experience in marketing And that only could turn to a profitable outcome for you. You then have the knowledge on how to market your clients better. You will find yourself coming up with new ideas day after day. You will discover how other members act and the way they build their websites and you gonna take full advantage of it. The more informed you are in a business …the more successful you can become.

“Is there any other way of getting paid from WA partnership besides the website operation? because I understand it takes time to build a successful website and have people surround you and trust you”

…YES. WA offers to their subscribers (both starter and premium) the affiliate boot camp courses. You will be trained in referring people and earn revenue in the process.

I have to underline here that joining the WA affiliate program is OPTIONAL. You are not obliged to do that. You can make money on your website and/or you can refer people to WA as an added income resource. It’s all up to you. 

That’s it, another review has finished, here on Web Market Support. I am waiting for your comments and thoughts. Till next time.

      Dear Bolaji

      I found a list of countries that are excluded from the Wealthy Affiliate Free Starter Membership (last updated on June 2015)

      Bangladesh, Egypt, India, Nigeria, Pakistan, Philippines and Vietnam. People from those countries are welcomed to join WA only by becoming premium paid members.

      But if you sign through me I will do my best to get you on the right track from your first month.

      Thank you for visiting my blog and for your interest in becoming an online entrepreneur.

    This is an amazing review of Wealthy Affiliate. I’ve heard really good things about them and you did a really good job in explaining it. There are so many scams out there it is really nice to see when something legit is out there.

    Thanks for the review.

    Hi Tasos,
    You have done a well job breaking Wealthy Affiliate down to the smallest possible detail imaginable, and not one bit of it was boring so I kept going until I got to the end. The great think is you start with two free websites and how to build them and earn an income through affiliate marketing, I’m talking the owners of the community Kyle and Carson and all the others members plus the training modules and videos. Then after the first week you keep and get so much more for only $ 19 the first month and $47 thereafter. I could not make to the 7-day mark to upgrade to premium because I was enjoying it that much, I had my doubts but I took the chance and I have no regrets for doing so.
    Yours Truly,
    Carlton

      Welcome to my blog , Carlton , you are very kind and your message shows why so many entrepreneurs around the globe choose to start an online business using the Wealthy Affiliate platform.

      All these tools and features packed in that price is a competitive advantage you can’t find easily elsewhere.

      You did a nice move , sometimes we have to be spontaneous , like you did , I guess I am a little more sceptical.

      Thank you for this visit , your participation in the comments and I wish you good luck in this online journey.All my best.

    I really like the image for the header, how did you make it?

    I do like the fact that you can sign up to Wealthy Affiliate for free, because at least it gives you a chance to try it out first and see if it suits your liking.

    It adds a nice touch where you’ve put what your responses were when reading through the Wealthy Affiliate forum. I also thought along these lines also. I enjoyed reading this article from the point of view of a skeptical person, because there probably have been many, many people who’ve fallen victim to scams online.

      Welcome Ryan , you are very kind.Nice image , really?…But I am never satisfied and I always changing it.Let’s see what will happen to that.I used some effects for the background.

      Yes , I really like it when online programs give you the chance to check their offer for free before having to decide.This is how ethical businesses run.These are the programs that have nothing to hide and they never push you.

      I am very skeptical by nature , that is why I proceed with caution.

      Thank you for visiting my blog , for stating your point of view here and your support.

    Hey Tasos, your WA review is on point, and it makes me a bit nostalgic, I remember being scammed a few times, so when I joined Wealthy Affiliate I couldn’t help but feel like it was another scam. After a short while however, I started realizing that it was the real deal. I’m really lucky to have come across WA and I hope that your readers will join too.

    This is an extremely awesome review of Wealthy Affiliate, and I have discovered a wealth of information here on the training platform, tools, help + support and the community 🙂

    As for complaints, people will also have something to complain about online. You can present the most perfect online opportunity, and people will still find something to complain about, lol.

    You have certainly cleared up all the questions I had on Wealthy Affiliate, and with all the amazing things I will receive, I’m going to become a starter member through your article.

      Hi Neil , you explained it so right , there is always a percentage of people that are not satisfied even with the most complete packages.Fortunately that portion inside WA is very small compared to the overall active population.

      It is a community worth checking out , anybody can leverage the power of internet and through their education courses to build an online business that could last for many years.

      Thank you for dropping by my blog and for your beautiful comments.

    Your story sounds very similar to mine. You see those kind of high pressure tactics all the time. You know what they’re trying to do but for some reason they mess with your head enough that every once in a while you fall victim. Of course they wouldn’t do it if it didn’t work, right? Thanks for sharing about this awesome opportunity. After I read your article I checked it out for myself and, you’re right, it really does sound legit without all the high pressure stuff. Thanks again!

      Welcome back Victor.I am not surprised at all if your story is coherent with mine.You clarified it so well – “High Pressure Tactics” – I like that term.They continue to use these shady tactics for a good reason , simply they work.Especially if the visitor is someone with low experience.Sometimes desperation and urgent need of money can move people’s minds into the wrong direction.

      WA is indeed something special , there is no pressure , it is an education platform , a community where everyone is willing to help you.

      I wanna thank you for taking the time to re-visit my blog and for sharing your experience here.

    I have read a few reviews of Wealthy Affiliate and I can say this is one of the better ones so far. Your perspective of “inside looking out” is very detailed in many of the benefits that will be found in Wealthy Affiliate. And I must agree with you in that the Community is a very strong selling point to encourage new people to join their winning team. You get fast, accurate answers anytime of the day, not like most Internet program forums that take at least 24 hours to get an answer from, or sometimes never receiving an answer at all.
    So I am curious on how you would rate Wealthy Affiliate? I did not see a Five-Star rating from you? Maybe I was so overwhelmed by the sheer excitement I got from reading your post I simply missed it.
    Thank you for your accurate and well written review of one of the best Affiliate Programs that can be found anywhere.

      Hello there Kenneth , I am glad we agree that the live interacting community is one of the top weapons of Wealthy Affiliate.In other forums there are huge delays or questions left unanswered at all , as you say.But internet is moving fast as technology and marketing , so this is a very crucial factor to consider.

      You missed my rating yes , I always rate products , I do that in my introductory images and usually I repeat that image close to the end of articles.

      I wanna thank you for visiting my blog , for your awesome and kind comments.

    One thing that people don’t understand is that the Internet business world is for everyone.

    Although it can seem daunting when trying to seek out a legitimate program, there are defined ways in which you can create a successful business in any niche. No experience necessary.

    The cool thing about getting started with Wealthy Affiliate is that you are not going to have any obligation to pay anything to get started. Spend as much time as you like within the Starter membership, find your niche, build your website, get rankings/traffic, and even earn revenue without the outlay of money.

    As one of the founders of WA, I can honestly say that when you join even as a completely FREE member, you will have access to me personally if you ever need a hand with anything along with the 1,000’s of people that are actively communicating within Wealthy Affiliate at any given moment.

      This message comes as a surprise for me , I would not expect it.This shows the beauty of Wealthy Affiliate.I wanna thank you so much Kyle for visiting my blog and for commenting here.You , as one of the owners of WA , knows first hand that internet business is for everyone that wants to build a foundation for the years to come.Such a foundation that comes as a solution to this extremely tough economic situation that modern nations deal with.

      Every day we hear of people losing their jobs , the news are full of entrepreneurs that shut down their projects or those who trick and fool innocent victims.The model of affiliate marketing is the lowest cost online business that can stand out in any competition.Internet is growing rapidly providing opportunities for all.

      Your high experience in internet marketing along with your decency and the amazing work behind Wealthy Affiliate that You and Carson did are the ideal ingredients to help people and entrepreneurs around the world.What your platform offers can not be compared to any network or product or service out there.

      You & Carson have simplified a process that seems very daunting and challenging , you have created a training model that even the most expensive Universities envy and you help even people with no experience build websites , to rank them in the search engines and to drive them into conversions.

      Your team is supporting us in every step we make and the tools inside WA are enormous.I wanna highlight again , as you already clarified , and overemphasize here that this model is for everyone and I believe that opportunities are on every niche of the market.What it takes is dedication to hard work , ethical spirit and communication.

      There are no words strong enough to describe in a single comment what WA really is and how YOU helped me to get at that level.

      You & Carson & Your Team are there for everyone , even for starter members that do not have to pay for anything.You are so proud of your network that you let people test it for as long as they like.That alone is something we don’t meet anywhere else.You were there for me whenever I needed and I know 1,000s members that only remember excellent treating and behaviour.

      I can’t thank you much through this comment , I wish that WA – this child that was built from your passion and Carson’s – that will grow and continue to offer such high quality services in the future.I will try my best to help you move into this direction.

      I am very happy that you visited my blog , such one that is created under your training.

      Thank you for your honesty and your awesome spirit.

      A friend of WA

    With all the countless scams out there, and also the other trainings that aren’t scams but aren’t very good, it’s amazing that Wealthy Affiliate really exists. If it didn’t exist, it would certainly need to be invented. It’s great that they have the Get Started Here course, so that any new person is taken by the hand and gently walked through the first few steps to get going.But as the training goes on, it really does get interesting and exciting. With every lesson there is something new, and you are given tasks to take your business one step closer to success.

    What is your favourite thing about Wealthy Affiliate? If you had to nail it down to just one thing, what would it be?

    Reply
    • Tasos

      Very good points Marcus.You are highlighting all the most important factors concerning online marketing trainings.You nail it down saying “That it should be invented in case it did not exist”…This is what takes WA to a level or more beyond the competition.It is not only the step by step complete marketing training , it’s all the features of this community that make that difference.I have watched countless other trainings and have not found so much information on marketing and websites and so much support.This community is huge.

      You asked a very challenging question here and I will give you my own perspective and it is the same I am using already in this post.What I think is the most crucial is the fact that WA is not promising success to No-one.They clearly express right from the beginning that online success might happen if we dedicate to consistent work.They only commit to provide the tools , the education , the support , the hosting and everything else.Then it is up to You and Me to work and apply what we learn in the training so that we drive our business to the road of success.

    Wealthy Affiliate is indeed the best platform out there. It has a free-trial account for those who wanted to give it a taste. I personally love the community inside. They are always ready to help me when I get stuck with my campaign.
    There is no other platform other than WA that can give you this comfort.

    Reply
    • Tasos

      That is why I love this platform too , Edy.Because of the interacting community.You need help?..You can use the live chat or you simply make a blog post and several members will help you right away.This is how I managed to solve all the problems I had in a very short period of time.In other communities I would have to wait for days or weeks just to get a response.

      Thank you for stating your personal point of view here , I wish you success with your campaigns

    Hello Tasos You have given a very comprehensive overview of Wealthy Affiliate and rated them highly as they should be because I too found them after being scammed a few times online and like you was pleasantly surprised at the sheer quality of training and awesome value of the education I received. I totally agree with you when you said the most important factor is not promising Success and it’s clearly stated that you have to work hard to make it happen. Which is absolutely true and why the program is so valuable because there is no B.S. Great review and I applaud your quality content 🙂

      Hi there Peter , you included in your message everything that matters most.When I am researching for business opportunities and partners or merchants I look for honesty.If someone is honest then I proceed with a co-operation.I don’t like fancy claims , screenshots of bank accounts and the stuff.WA is one of the very few platforms , in an ocean of online frauds , that are not promising anything and that is honest.Because in everything we do in our life , in every business model there are no quick results.Even for offline businesses that require investments and buying inventory in order to be successful you will have to wait for some years to recover the initial costs and finally make a profit.WA was crystal clear right from the beginning.We are providing the tools and education , you have to put the work.

      I wanna thank you for visiting my blog and for your beautiful comments that really mean a lot.

    Great review, thanks for sharing. I am all for wealthy Affiliates and I really enjoyed what you said early on in your post. What got me more than losing money in scams is the waste of TIME. Time is valuable. Not only that but the disappointment of being messed around yet again.
    Wealthy Affiliates on the other hand has taken up a LOAD of my time, but I am so happy to put that time in. What I put in I get out 10 fold.

      Exactly Lynne , time is what matters more for me too.I have spent countless hours in the past watching fancy videos or presentations or trainings that were proved a Waste Of Time.While I could do something more productive in my life.I was getting angry and that is not what we call peace of mind.Disappointment , fear of there is nothing worthy online.

      Till I found WA.There I learned how to create , to offer value and I keep on studying every day.The resources are endless inside , the people and the interaction with them is awesome.I am glad you found that same value in WA and you are satisfied with your results.

      Thank you for sharing your experience and for your lovely comments.

    Hi Tasos, there’s plenty to read here. I have heard of Wealthy Affiliate before but didn’t really know what it was about. Too many scams have left me wary of everything, at least you’re honest and tell people it’s not a push button and you have to put some work into it. How long do you think it takes to become successful? I work full time can you do it in your spare time?

      Hi there Dave , welcome to my blog.Yeah , the online situation with so many scams is totally unbearable , that is why I decided to create a website to advice people how to get started in a decent way.I had been searching for more than 2 years online to discover WA after all.They were straight forward from the beginning.We have to put the work , they provide the education and the tools.

      Now as concerns your question it will need quite some time.It’s very hard to answer accurately but I will try.First of all it depends on your niche.For example the niche of my website is very competitive.I have to keep on working continuously.Then we have the search engines.It takes a lot of time to build a trust and to get rankings.Of course you can use the social media to bring more traffic and to diversify your sources.You can not just rely on the engines.I started working in my spare time due to other businesses I am running at the same time.Right now I have more free time to work on.

      I can only advice you not to think of the “money” but to focus on the quality of your content ,to provide helpful solutions for the people and then they will begin to trust you.If you remain consistent you will reach success.

      Thank you for visiting and for your comments , if you ever need anything do not hesitate ,I am here for everyone.You feel stuck , out of ideas , you need inspiration.I am here.I have seen so many people abandon their work after a few months.But those that stay reap the rewards.

    Hi,
    Never know where to go now, wealthy affiliate, my first day to see such a wonderful site with all such benefits.
    Free websites, personal assistance from members and free starter membership, coaching and many more. To be sincere it is now more than five years landing to scams, but now I will try this out.
    I was looking online jobs and I came to your website and thanks very much for this review.
    Joining is simple and I will do it now.

      Ouch … that is pretty bad Divican.Walking around and falling only to scams for 5 years.But you did not give up.I can congratulate you for your strength.WA is a special place , the owners have put not only great work but they keep on updating their content and services.I am researching online opportunities for more than 3 years and still have not found any training better than this one.

      I am glad you are about to check it out.Thank you for visiting my site and for sharing your experience

    You gave an overlook of this program that is quite elaborate and if this is like you mention, how come I have never heard of it before as I search such programs for a while now. If it is free for 7 days as you are saying, I will have a look and thanks for all the information.

    Reply
    • Tasos

      Hello there Daniel , yes WA has a free 7 day trial where you can test all areas with full permission.After that period you can stay for free with restrictions but still you can host and build 2 free websites with their builder.You can stay as free for as long as you want , no one will push you to upgrade.In the meantime you can participate in their Affiliate Program if you want to refer other people and grant commissions , but that is optional as well.

      May be you did not find WA because there are so many marketing training portals available.I had discovered WA after a long period of research , too.

      I wanna thank you for taking the time to comment on my blog and I wish you find WA useful.

    Your in-depth description of Wealthy Affiliate is spot on. I really enjoy the community there. You don’t have to be a member to enjoy so much of the teaching though it is a benefit. Hosting a site costs money every month, so why not just have WA host it. Instead of just paying for it to sit there, learn what you can while WA hosts it. Makes perfect sense to me. A wonderful place for newbies who are just starting out.

      So you know what WA has to offer Kitty.Exactly , you can stay as free member , host your website for free and start taking lessons , beautiful.And not only , you can meet people all over the world and share experiences and insights.There are no Up-Sells coming up and you are not forced to go on premium , unless you want it.Their system is brilliant and they teach marketing in an ethical way.

      I am glad you liked WA and I wanna thank you for passing by my blog and for your lovely comments.

    That’s a comprehensive review of Wealthy Affiliate Tasos and gives anybody looking for an opportunity to build a website and make some money from it a good idea of what it’s all about.

    From what you say, there’s lots of training available even for those who join up for free in the first instance so what extra can people expect to get if they become a paying member?

    Reply
    • Tasos

      Hi Mark , as I described in my post the free membership has access to a part of the classrooms and courses , the keyword tool with restrictions and 2 free websites.The premium membership includes everything that WA has to offer.

      I think that people should expect way more if they decide to go on premium.Although the free one is on top of internet marketing services the premium option of WA goes very deep.Going premium on WA means better communication , endless material and training and hosting beyond the standards of the market.In addition with the premium account you have the option to host owned domain names while the free gives free domains with the siterubix extension.That can be proved an ongoing advantage for the premium in the fight with the search engines for the rankings.

    Hey Tasos,

    Wealthy Affiliate is a great resource for learning internet marketing. I was with them since 2008 and recently joined again. I actually began my internet marketing career with them and felt the need to sign up again. The community is great. I have met so many like minded people there. Got to love the 1 on 1 support you get from Kyle and Carson too. That support from real millionaires is certainly worth the $47 per month alone. You simply can’t beat that guidance. A lot of experienced online marketers will charge you thousands for consultations. Anyone looking to join would have to be out of their mind to not sign up!

      Hey Garen

      It’s great to meet an old member of the Wealthy Affiliate project.This community is active surrounded by high experienced “players” in the marketing field that are willing to help anyone.

      I can not agree more with your comment about the co-owners that are participating daily supporting all the members and even fix technical issues that newbies deal with and this is something unique especially when you begin working on websites and you need someone to show you the right path.They answer their emails and continue to post or blog updates frequently and they upgrade their services according to the internet market technology.

      This is what any new marketer should need ,a live interactive support in every step.Anyone can join for free and there are no obligations or up-sells throughout the membership.

      Thank you for your observations and keep up with your projects too.!!

    Thank you for this review. It has all the wonderful things included that goes along with Wealthy Affiliate.I think we all have been scammed on the internet and then felt like a fool afterwards. For this reason, I too was sceptical of Wealthy Affiliate. It was nothing like my preconceived notion. It never promises anything. This program teaches you how to build an online business. Thanks for sharing this!

      Hi Jean and welcome to my site

      It must have been a giant step for you to join forces with this amazing Wealthy Affiliate community.Can you imagine yourself back in time not trying out this opportunity?..because of your scepticism?..And I would not blame you.Anyone with such bad experiences loses faith and then thinks that only scams are out there trying to rip off and take ’em down.

      Thank you for letting me know your opinion on that

    When I accidentally came across Wealthy Affiliate, the usual negative thoughts begin to fill my mind. After getting scammed out of my money too many times before, I couldn’t wrap my head around the idea that this could be real. When I found out that I could give it a try for free, without offering any credit card information, I had to give it a shot.

    That was 8 months ago and yes, Wealthy Affiliate is everything you say it is. Anyone can do this! If you want to create an online business and have your own website, you have nothing to lose by testing out Wealthy Affiliate.

    This is an excellent review and you have explained in detail everything one needs to know to get started. Affiliate marketing works and for anyone with doubts, I’d say try it for free and see that Wealthy Affiliate has all the tools of success.

      Hi Michelle and thank you for sharing your own personal experience here

      I am not surprised you have been scammed , and not only once.I always meet new people who have such a similar story to “tell”.I have been scammed a lot of times and from a certain point I promised myself not to give any personal credit card details to anyone no matter how shiny or promising it would appear.Wealthy Affiliate community never promised anything and never asked for anything.

      I always Test and then Buy – this is my rule , and not only about internet business.I apply this rule to every step I make.But the “Internet” is the most valuable source for all the scams out there to take full advantage of newbies , no one sees them , no one knows where they are.

      Have a great day
