Wealthy Affiliates Review – Let’s Dive into It
There are many online Affiliate Marketing programmes and courses out there that claim to “make you big bucks” online. But to tell you the truth, not all of them are what they claim to be (so please be careful of them).
Personally, we (myself and my wife) went through a number of them (read our story here) and all of them resulted in 0% income and instead we lost a lot of our money. Then we came across Wealthy Affiliates.
We did our comprehensive research and read many reviews, but came across nothing substantially that was negative, which itself was a surprise to us. But, still we joined with caution (because of our past experiences with other scamming Affiliate Marketing programmes) and signed up to the Starter Membership, which was totally risk free as it did not cost anything (totally FREE for life). The rest is history – read our journey to Wealthy Affiliate.
What is Wealthy Affiliates?
Wealthy Affiliate is an online platform, where you can learn and build your online business for FREE. They have all the latest tools, technology and software, such as WordPress, SiteRubix, Jaaxy etc to help you learn, build, manage and grow your online businesses centrally from one place (which is your wealthy affiliate account). They even host your websites and provide you with two FREE Domains/URLs.
Since 2005, Wealthy Affiliate has helped over 1 million people like you and me to become successful online entrepreneurs (that’s quite an achievement, wouldn’t you say) and many of us in this community are making a six figure or more income in the online industry at the moment.
So, is Wealthy Affiliate a Scam or What?
If you have any reservation or thoughts, whether Wealthy Affiliate is a Scam or not, hey, we wouldn’t blame you (as the Internet is crawling with many scams) because it’s difficult sometimes to separate the Good from the Bad.
If you were asking us or anybody else as a matter of fact we think you’ll always get the answer to be a big fat NO! They are one of the best Affiliate Marketing sites we’ve worked with and to be honest they have made us to be SUCCESSFUL, and no other Affiliate programme has been able to do that!
Also, the fact they give their Starter Membership as free for life to anyone, very strongly answers the question and is evident enough.
Who is Wealthy Affiliates For?
Wealthy Affiliate is suitable for beginners to the advanced users, it really doesn’t matter as you will get to LEARN EVERYTHING. If you don’t have a business or website you will get to build one, on the other hand if you are someone who already has successful businesses running then you can take your businesses to the next level, which you thought was not possible. The possibilities are endless really.
To put it into one word, it is for EVERYONE, any level of experience (you don’t have to be tech savvy), any age or gender. You can use your smartphone, tablet, PC and laptop to work from. We personally use our laptop and tablets mostly as we love traveling, hence we can work on our business from anywhere around the world, just need Internet connection and we’re in business. IT IS OUR LAPTOP LIFESTYLE and we LOVE IT.
Is Wealthy Affiliate really WORTH it?
The answer in short is YES! 🙂
The whole Affiliate Marketing programme in Wealthy Affiliate is very comprehensive, even as a Starter Member and it helps you set up your online business from the very beginning to the end where you are actually generating an income. The unique thing about their membership is that you can remain a Starter Member for life without having to pay a penny, but get all the benefits that comes with it. One of the greatest benefit is, you get not one but 2 FREE Domains/URLs (to start building your websites).
However, if you want extra learning, support and many other benefits, which will all lead to more bigger bucks, then we highly recommend the premium membership, which is $49 per month or $359 per year. But do remember, you do NOT have to upgrade, the choice is yours. It is way cheaper than many other companies and it is the most effective company we have ever come across, as Wealthy Affiliate doesn’t only make ’empty promises’ for success, but it actually helps you get there every stop of the way by teaching and supporting you with the right tools and methods.
Here is the comparison of the two types of membership at Wealthy Affiliate:
The FREE Lessons from Wealthy Affiliate
Through all the super effective and easy to follow lessons, which comes in the form of video and text tutorials (pick your preference) and hands on support from the community, we have made it a SUCCESS, and we genuinely believe you can too.
The picture below gives an overview of the contents of the FREE lessons, which you can start on straightway after signing up to the FREE Starter Membership.
What else do you get from Wealthy Affiliate?
The community is like a FAMILY!
The community within Wealthy Affiliate is amazingly helpful – you never have to struggle with anything because all you got to do is ask other members (that’s including the two big BOSSES) and your questions will be answered within seconds. We feel we’re part of a very big family and the mum and dad (well, only dads) are Kyle and Carson (the two owners), as they genuinely help you on a practical basis.
What we also love about Wealthy Affiliate is that there is no hierarchy of roles here, everybody is there to help/support each other to succeed, even the daddies (Kyle and Carson)!
Does Wealthy Affiliate Live Up To The HYPE?
Yes, we are living proof along with its current 850,000 or more current members whom are learning, creating, managing and growing our businesses with Wealthy Affiliate. It can work for you too if you’re willing to commit yourself to consistent learning and applying the knowledge to your website practically to move forward in your business.
The courses and lessons are designed to learn at your own pace, no one will pressure you to complete a lesson by a particular date. At Wealthy Affiliate they understand everybody is different and have various other commitments, hence it has been beautifully designed to accommodate all individuals from all walks of life. You can learn in the morning, afternoon, evening or if you want even during the night for as long as you want.
Four Simple Steps, but SMART Success
Are There Any Upsells After Joining?
One of the best positives about Wealthy Affiliate is how transparent they are with everything, there is no hidden agenda or charges (like many other companies we experienced with had). Once you join and get a taste of your starter membership and you are truly serious about taking your business to the next height, then the ONLY upsell is to upgrade your account to a premium membership (but like we said, the choice is yours, you can stay on the starter membership for life should you choose to). Other than that there is NO MORE UPSELLS FOR ANYTHING. This is one of the reasons we love Wealthy Affiliate so much, they are honest and transparent in all means (they are as it says on the tin).
First Month Premium Membership Bonus Discount
When you feel you want to taste the Premium Membership, you can do so for a very reduced fee of ONLY $19 instead of the regular fee of $49. Within that month if you don’t like the taste of the Premium Membership, you can downgrade to the FREE Starter Membership and pay no fees. It’s a WIN/WIN situation.
Our Final Take
The software and tools such as WordPress, Jaaxy, SiteRubix, as well as the lessons and the amazing family of community that provide the support is effective enough to enable you to become successful in the online world. But like we said before, the commitment and determination is all down to you (that is the reality of life).
Personally, we will highly recommend checking the Wealthy Affiliates free contents out by signing up FREE HERE, before committing yourself to the premium membership. That’s how we became premium members. We made the decision and we don’t regret one bit of it. Every penny of our premium membership is well spent here. If you have a burning desire to make BIG MONEY online, then in our honest and humble opinion, Wealthy Affiliate is the NUMBER ONE choice. But of course the decision is yours. We hope we’ve given you a good insight in making your decision and would love to see you on the other side (the better side 🙂 ). We wish you all the best.
