Don’t Worry About Money Anymore

There are also people that hate WA for their own reasons and do anything they can to change things for their own good…

My Promise:

The Promise…

Overview/History

WA was founded in 2005, but the co-founders, Kyle and Carson, begun their online journey with PPC (pay-per-click) advertising campaigns a few years earlier, and Wealthy Affiliate started out as a simple ‘Keyword List’ site to help bloggers, small businesses, and entrepreneurs find their audience by using ‘targeted’ keywords.

MAIN EDUCATION

Main Training Modules Review

Online Entrepreneur Certification Courses – 2 Modules x 10 lessons

plus

Affiliate Bootcamp Training – 7 Phases x 10 lessons

Wealthy Affiliate Education

The WA Training aims to help people succeed in affiliate marketing. This business model enables independent entrepreneurs or companies to earn commissions on products and services offered by 3rd parties. The final price of the product remains the same, and affiliate marketers don’t have to worry about delivery and customer service. 

This is a great opportunity for those that don’t own a product, they simply can promote other companies products and earn commissions. In many cases, the commission rates are pretty lucrative reaching 70% (mostly for digital products), and there are recurring commissions for products that come in the form of monthly or yearly subscriptions.

It’s a very flexible business model with literally no restrictions as affiliates can promote as many companies as they want.

The training introduces to members the affiliate marketing world, and through a step by step structure full of actionable tasks and assignments get people to take action on what they learn. 

It’s the ‘Earn while you Learn’ method. 

The training expands on SEO, keyword research, niche and market research, WordPress, content creation, social media marketing, website development and programming, local marketing, video marketing, email marketing, pay per click marketing, and more.

There are 2 main training modules

  • Online Entrepreneur Certification – 2 courses of 10 lessons each
  • Affiliate Bootcamp – 7 phases of 10 lessons each

Additionally, there are Classrooms, and Live Video Classes that are held every Friday. These classrooms and video classes are what makes WA training stand above the competition as we’ll discover later on.

On top of that, members can publish their own trainings, blog posts, and ask any questions. The forum is very interactive and the live chat is pretty crowded with thousands of entrepreneurs discuss everything that has to do with online businesses at any given time and day.

This means you can get your questions answered in minutes or hours, where at the same time in other places and communities slow infrastructures result in a delay.

Online Entrepreneur Certification – Level 1

Getting Started 

(available for Free and Premium members)

Review

All in all, this training module is a great introduction to making money online with affiliate marketing. Everything a newcomer needs is right there. My only objection is the ‘Niches’ related section. All the other chapters include all the necessary information for someone that wants to start an online business.

The course lives up to its promises (benefits and learning outcomes), it’s available for Free and Premium members and is one the best free trainings in the market. 

I suggest that you take both the WA 1st training course and the DBR Training in order to spot the best of niches with your first choice.

Online Entrepreneur Certification – Level 2

Building your Own Traffic Producing Website 

(available for Premium members only)

Review

All in all, a great training module to make people understand important aspects of this business model. Although basic it expands on all the necessary information to help you get started the ‘right’ way. The training delivers on its promises (benefits and learning outcomes).

These 2 first training modules apply for those that want to start a website outside the ‘Make Money Online’ industry which is the most competitive. 

I suggest that you take both the 2 Online Entrepreneur Certification Courses and the WA Affiliate Bootcamp training module that consists of 7 phases with 70 lessons in total.

Have in mind that the Bootcamp training is designed to direct people in the ‘Make Money Online’ industry but the methods analyzed there can be applied to any industry you want. 

WA Affiliate Bootcamp – Phase 1

Getting Your Business Rolling 

(available for Free and Premium members)

Review

All in all, a very detailed training module full of examples, keywords, and tasks to complete. A ‘Goldmine’ of information that is available for Free and premium members as well. The training lives up to its promises (benefits and learning outcomes).

You don’t wanna miss this particular training, one of the best Free trainings showing people how to make money with affiliate marketing.

WA Affiliate Bootcamp – Phase 2

Content, Keywords, and Conversions 

(available for Premium members only)

Review

All in all, another great training module that lives up to its promises (benefits and learning outcomes). The training goes deeper into the affiliate world and provides methods that if applied can lead to the ultimate online success.

A very important lesson that I suggest you go through at least 2 times. If you get this course right then everything will get easier going forward.

WA Affiliate Bootcamp – Phase 3

Giving your site Social Value 

(available for Premium members only)

Review

All in all, another great training that helps people move forward in the right direction. It goes deeper and deeper into the online world and the very detailed video walkthroughs make learning a breeze.

The training lives up to its promises (benefits and learning outcomes)

At the end of this module, you should be well on your way to conversions and your first sales.

WA Affiliate Bootcamp – Phase 4

Get Visual, Get Aesthetic, Get a Brand Through… 

(available for Premium members only)

Review

All in all, another comprehensive training, this time going deeper into the online business world. My favorite lesson is the last one where Kyle shows his expertise and guides marketers to understand their customers better. Of course, you can imagine, that understanding customers will lead to more engagement, conversions, and revenue.

Another great chapter is the 7th where Kyle displays how to track low-competition keywords.

A training that you should pay close attention to.

WA Affiliate Bootcamp – Phase 5

Knowing your Audiences & Catapulting your Referrals 

(available for Premium members only)

Review

All in all, another great training module that expands upon conversions, engagement, user experience, productivity, and planning content creation. It goes back to videos and referral sequences and automated campaigns. Not only, it shows how to get videos ranked on YouTube. Awesome stuff!

WA Affiliate Bootcamp – Phase 6

Bing, Yahoo, and the Power of PPC 

(available for Premium members only)

Review

All in all, a training that should get your feet moving. I suggest you get through this training at least 2-3 times before you decide to spend any money on paid ads. Its powerful stuff but there is a risk, so take your time when studying this part of the training.

These methods can be applied to any niche of the market you want although is designed to help people in the ‘Make Money Online’ niche.

WA Affiliate Bootcamp – Phase 7

How to Scale Successful PPC Campaigns 

(available for Premium members only)

Review

All in all, a very detailed training module deeper into the PPC world. Have in mind that paid advertising is not for beginners as there is a risk of losing money. But PPC is a method used by thousands of companies and for the majority of them is the most valuable resource for traffic.

This is Where the Main Wealthy Affiliate Training Comes to an End

2 modules of 10 lessons each plus 7 phases of 10 lessons each
90 lessons in total

But this is Only a Part of the WA Training

There are Classrooms and Live Video Classes

Final Review of the Main WA Training

All the lessons with no exception are followed by tasks and assignments, and point people to inner separate discussion threads. This means we have to do with an interactive training where members post questions, show their progress, exchange ideas and solve problems. It’s very important to follow other people that started before you, and to get help whenever needed.

All the lessons come with detailed video walkthroughs by Kyle, the owner. He is showing all the methods he use to get rankings for his external niche sites and he helps people understand the whole money making system step by step.

That training is for those that want to build an online business based on the affiliate marketing model where you don’t have to own products or to worry about delivery and customer service. A very flexible business model with countless benefits that we already analyzed.

The training modules cover these areas:

  • Basic understanding of the money making process
  • How to choose a direction (niche)
  • The SiteRubix web builder and its features
  • First steps to WordPress and plugins, backups
  • Initial content pages, Custom menus
  • Keywords (many lessons devoted to keywords)
  • How to use the WA membership and features
  • Domains, email accounts
  • SEO (extended lessons and examples), affiliate links, internal links
  • Content creation (extended training)
  • Traffic (extended lessons and examples)
  • User experience, engagement, interaction, customers buying journey, customer perspective
  • Visuals, graphics, logos, images, web design
  • Social media (G+, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest)
  • Reviews
  • Conversions, tracking 
  • Bonuses
  • Productivity, planning
  • Video marketing
  • PPC marketing (many approaches and methods shared)
  • Analysis
wealthy affiliate education

The Verdict

Have in mind that this is the training that got me started in the online world in 2015. And still, I get back to it on many occasions to refresh my memory and to exchange ideas with other entrepreneurs in the classrooms. On top of that, I try to watch the Live Video Classes held by Jay Neill every Friday or the replays.

But of course, no training is perfect.

Objections

I would expect a more detailed explanation of ‘Niches’.

There is extended information on this subject but members have to retrieve it manually in the classrooms and the live video classes archive.

The Bootcamp is 7 phases long while the online entrepreneur certification consists of only 2 phases. The Bootcamp is focused on promoting WA with a ‘Make Money Online’ site, and the online entrepreneur certification is for people that want to build a site in any niche they want.

This structure may lead newcomers to join the Bootcamp training which is more comprehensive instead of going through the online entrepreneur certification courses. As the majority of newbies won’t be able to discover a niche in which they are passionate about due to the lack of crucial information they might get involved in a ‘Make Money Online’ site, a segment of the market that is very saturated.

Of course, people going through all of the courses, like me, will be able to apply the Bootcamp techniques in any niche, but many people might get lost.

Parts of the premium main training modules provide only basic knowledge, for example, training on design or video marketing. I would expect more content on these subjects.

I would expect the training to expand on more social networks. It refers only to the 4 most popular engines, G+, Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest. The Pinterest and the G+ trainings are more thorough, the Twitter and Facebook chapters are only a summary of those networks.

The Good Things 

No objection to keywords, SEO, content creation, PPC, traffic methods, conversions, tracking, and WordPress. All these lessons provide a powerful framework to scale websites.

In fact, there is so much information that you’d always discover new techniques to implement.

And this is what makes the WA training so powerful. These are the most important aspects of an online business. Keywords, SEO, traffic, PPC, conversions. If you get these right you don’t have to worry about going social or other methods.

Furthermore, the lessons dedicated to the SiteRubix platform are very comprehensive and don’t leave space for questions.

All in all, it’s the training that helped me achieve online success, and I believe it can do the same for you. Only have in mind 1 thing. The ‘Make Money Online’ niche is very competitive and it takes more time to build an authority name.

WA Classrooms – Final Review

The classroomsis an interactive department where members can ask questions, give help, publish tutorials, videos, and courses.

I’m with WA for a long time now and I always check the classrooms for new content.

There are 1,000s of questions that have been answered.

Hundreds of tutorials, videos, and courses.

The classrooms is the place to get cutting edge information, learn secret strategies other successful marketers use, and amplify your marketing and business knowledge.

In this online business, you’re not alone. You have the help of thousands of other entrepreneurs whenever you need it. Everybody contributes, the owners, experts, advanced marketers, and even newcomers with their questions.

This is why I enjoy being a member of this community. I had all my questions answered without even asking any question. I just perform an inner search and the WA platform provides all the relevant results.

The education at WA never stops, this is why they call it a University!

Live Video Classes Review

Weekly video sessions – Host Jay Neill explores ‘Hot’ Marketing topics

Wealthy Affiliate – Education

Live Video Classes

The WA Live Video Classes are held every Friday where Jay Neill shares valuable insights into ‘Hot’ marketing topics to ensure all premium members stay on top of their competition.

At the end of every class, there is a Questions & Answers session where Jay responds to all the incoming messages. This is a great chance to ask your burning questions and have them answered by a marketing expert.

The Live Video Classes are available only for premium members. You can watch all the video recordings at your own pace. There’s a huge archive of over 13 years.

When I watched the first WA video training I got immediately hooked on Jay’s style and very effective way of communication. The information shared here is exclusive and Jay shares his own strategies, methods, and frameworks. It’s an over his shoulder demonstration and you get to see how he discovers highly profitable niches in the marketplace, how he builds websites, and how he monetizes traffic.

Jay became my mentor and is the man that influenced me the most throughout my online journey that started at the end of 2014.

Notice: For the last 2 years, 1 of the 52 live video classes is organized and presented by Kyle, one of the owners.

LIVE VIDEO CLASSES ARCHIVE – EXAMPLES

  • Jay’s SEO process for 2018
  • Insights into efficiently becoming an expert in 2018

WA Live Video Classes – Final Review

If I had to summarize this WA department in one sentence I would say this:

These Topics Can Transform your Marketing Knowledge.

As you can see the Wealthy Affiliate Live Video Classes expand on the main training modules and the classrooms.

Jay’s methods helped me achieve massive online success. These training sessions are fully packed with exclusive information on top marketing strategies that bring results.

I can’t stress the importance of those topics enough.

The Live Video Classes provide information on topics that the Bootcamp and Online Entrepreneur Certification Courses do not offer.

These techniques can transform you from a marketing newbie to a marketing ninja ready to dominate the markets as an affiliate, as an SEO consultant, as a website developer for clients, as a local marketing agency, as a marketing company, a freelancer, a dropshipper, an owner of an eCommerce store.

Following Jay’s class, you’ll find yourself ahead of the competition. If I had to follow one person in WA, this would be Jay.

That is why I recommend Wealthy Affiliate Live Video Classes as one of the Top Online Business Resources worldwide.

I recommend WordPress, it’s a system I know it’s working, it’s the system I use daily, I had no problems so far, and you have the support of a multi-million community of other users (me included), experts, and developers.

It’s the most popular, complete, and flexible CMS on the market, with no restrictions, with an enormous gallery of design themes and templates, fully expandable using Free plugins, and there are Free tutorials for anything you might need.

WEBSITE EXAMPLES

A collection of websites created by WA members

Wealthy Affiliate Website Examples

Now I want to demonstrate websites built with the SiteRubix web builder from people followed the Wealthy Affiliate training, sites that are doing well in their niche, get rankings in the search engines, and earn income mostly in the form of affiliate commissions, selling advertising space, and email marketing.

More importantly, I will show websites outside the ‘Make Money Online’ niche because in the main training modules review I highlighted that the WA training is mostly geared towards that industry. But I also mentioned that these training methods and principles can be applied to any market.

These sites come from Wealthy Affiliate members who completed the main training modules, participated in the training classrooms, and followed the live video classes archive (which is the most valuable and comprehensive part of the WA training that provides information outside the saturated ‘Make Money Online’ industry, information that can be used to build websites in any niche of the market).

You can use these websites as inspiration, to get ideas for your site, and to get to know that anything’s possible if you work consistently.

While this was going on during the years I started blogging and learning about online marketing. I have to admit that I really fell in love with blogging.

The site is divided into these categories:
  • Baby competition, weight loss, breastfeeding
  • Kids activities, recipes, pregnancy
  • Natural remedies, birth story, sleep, labor
  • Exercise, yoga, marriage
  • Household hacks
Overview:

The site is user-friendly, very easy to navigate, and provides valuable content for parents. There is an inner forum, photo competitions, and pages with products.

Content Examples:

  • A guide to getting your baby to walk
  • 10 things every mom should know about cars
  • LG Neochef Microwave review
  • 6 power foods that help you sleep better
  • 10 incredible benefits of boxing for kids
  • How to keep your entire house clean

 

The content is well-written divided into segments, uses lots of images and own videos, offers advice on anything that has to do with parents and kids.

Additionally, there are list-pages and best of topics.

The design is clean and simple and the atmosphere is very friendly.

Rankings:

I checked some of the ‘Keywords’ and here are my findings:

  • Keyword ‘wooden toys vs plastic toys’ – Rankings: Google #7, Bing #2, Yahoo #7
  • Keyword ‘motivation tips to reduce post pregnancy weight’ – Rankings: Google #3, Bing #1, Yahoo #1
  • Keyword ‘things to consider before becoming parents’ – Rankings: Google #9, Bing #13, Yahoo #5

 

Main Income:

The site makes money mainly by redirecting people to Amazon and other merchant websites and earning affiliate commissions. It sells advertising space via the Google Adsense and other ad networks, and it’s very likely that the owner earns revenue with email marketing as he has an active newsletter or other methods as well.

Moreover, the site has a very active You-Tube channel which may bring additional income from advertising.

 

Final Review:

The site gets great rankings in the most popular search engines for quite many keywords although the high competition.

The owner shares her journey as a mom and has created a fan base with like-minded people all over the world.

This site is a perfect example of what can be accomplished through hard work and effective communication.

  • A powerful Site Panel with many monitoring and management features, and statistics.
  • Enough bandwidth and space
  • Easy transfer to and from other providers
  • A super friendly support team that is willing to solve issues even when they have nothing to do with their service. They always respond within minutes. They’re always helpful, fast, friendly, and in many cases, they help with problems that have nothing to do with their services. The support team is one of the best WA features.
  • Some features can’t be found on other providers like SiteComments, SiteFeedback, SiteContent, free stock photo finder, keyword tools, training, community, live chat, forum…

CONS

  • Absence of cPanel
  • Membership plugins that connect to external serves are excluded
  • No FTP access for Free members

All in all, a great hosting service that I highly recommend.

Domains Review

You can’t register fancy domain extensions but the domain package as a part of the SiteRubix platform is very powerful. This comes as a result of WA being an online business community with training, forum, hosting services, and website management features.

The price is competitive and includes unlimited email accounts which other registrars charge for. There are no upsells, and the Free SSL certificate makes the deal really appealing.

Highly recommended
