What is Wealthy Affiliate All About…??

Make a WishAre you tired of working for somebody else?

Have you ever dreamed of working for yourself, when YOU want to, doing what YOU want to do, working where YOU want to work…and just plain not having to be tied to the guidelines of others?!

Me too!

Dreaming about it, wishing for it, reading about other people’s accomplishments…enough is enough!

It’s time you do something about your current situation!

That’s exactly where I was when I stumbled upon an article one night that told me all about Wealthy Affiliate.

It was the first article that I read that sounded legit, that was obviously not a scam like every other article I had read. Promising me they would show me how to get-rich-quick, no work needed, blah blah blah.

So you’re asking yourself… What the heck is Wealthy Affiliate anyways?

To put it simply… Wealthy Affiliate (aka WA) is an online business training platform.

But it’s more than just a training platform. It’s an “all-inclusive” training platform.

I don’t know about you, but I LOVE it when I hear the phrase “ALL INCLUSIVE

Wealthy Affiliate provides not only education, but it also provides the websites needed, the hosting needed and the community and support needed to have a successful online business…from the very beginning of your entrepreneur journey through to an incredibly successful life sustaining income.


Wealthy Affiliate is far above all the rest when it comes to its website platform and what it offers. The education is above and beyond, the hosting that is provided through WordPress is up-to-date, continuously being updated, and the WA community is the most helpful in the world…hands down!!

What’s Included In Your Membership?

As a member:

  • You get the training that you need to build an online business
  • You get all the tools that are required to do this
  • You get technical support from experts at anytime 24/7; from Kyle and Carson, the two co founders, who you can get a hold of through email; the incredible community that is made up of people from all around the world…all forward-thinking, team-oriented and up-lifting amazing people:)

So Wealthy Affiliate, What Is It All About…??

To break it down, it’s very simple…the focus is affiliate marketing, hence the name Wealthy Affiliate.

Simply put affiliate marketing is when you promote products online and earn commissions when there is a sale.

You help make those sales.  An example of that would be you promote a product through an affiliate link, someone clicks your link, and then that link takes said person to an online store (let’s say Amazon for all intents and purposes, because Amazon is such a humongous online shopping site). The person at their online store buys the product that you are promoting, and then you get paid a commission. Woohoo!!!!

Affiliate marketing is a totally sustainable way to make money online…and it is legitimate!!

It’s also a great way for beginners to get started. It’s simple…and it’s low start up costs are the perfect factors for the beginner online business person.

All you have to do is promote the products;) You don’t have to have your own product to sell. You don’t have to worry about any kind of overhead or storage costs or delivery or packaging expenses.

It won’t cost you an arm and a leg to get started when you go with Wealthy Affiliate.

And to top it all off, you can have commissions coming in from so many different places and different sources that if one of your sources has a slump period, your other sources could carry you through it.

Diversify baby;)


Why Do I Feel Wealthy Affiliate Is So Great…?

As I said, WA provides the tools and the training necessary to make money at affiliate marketing. And if you’re reading this article you’re probably pretty familiar with the fact that there are so many people who fail miserably at online businesses…usually because they don’t have the right training. Right?! But isn’t that with any kind of business, whether it be online or brick and mortar?

The real reason for the key to success here at WA is the system that they have in place. It is basically a fail proof system.

If you are willing to put forth the effort, the hard work, and the time it takes to build what you want out of this business then you have all the tools here that you need.

Me, being the complete newbie, zero computer knowledge-having self that I am (or was) coming into Wealthy Affiliate, if I hadn’t taken this journey with WA, I would have not even known where to begin, much less gotten off the ground.

But luckily, I came across this article one late night and read, and read, and read about WA. And for whatever reason it resonated with me that these people were the real deal, no lie, truly out to help people succeed.

So the proven system that I spoke of earlier…let me break it down a bit…

  1. The step-by-step training is phenomenal. It is laid out for you lesson by lesson, in order. Each one building on the other. So easy to follow with lots of video tutorials, and Kyle repeatedly tells you to not skip a lesson, do not skip ahead, do not leave anything out. If you need to go back and re-read something or redo something please do so that you get the full understanding of what you’re learning because you are only doing yourself justice.
  2. The tools that are provided are so easy to use!  These tools are what you use to build your website. Yeah…you heard me right! YOU build your own website:) In less than 30 seconds you build a website. How cool is that?! And the keyword research tool…so, so valuable, yet at the same time so easy to use.
  3. The tech-support is invaluable! It’s there for you 24/7. Like I said earlier, I knew zero about computer stuff! You don’t need to know anything about coding, nothing about anything computer related. They are there for you!
  4. The community is so fabulous, and it is so full of so many hidden gems:) I cannot say enough about the community! You have people from literally all over the world, and you communicate with each other as much as you choose, Many of these community members are veterans in the affiliate marketing world, and you’ll learn quickly who those are:)…they are here to help and they love doing it…paying it forward:)

Wealthy Affiliate Training

The training courses that are offered…

There are 5 Core Courses and each one of those courses has 10 lessons in it. The first one starts off as if you know absolutely nothing, which is wonderful because even the newest of newbies will be able to do this!

That’s the beauty of Wealthy Affiliate, it is for the new beginner affiliate marketer as well as the expert, experienced affiliate marketer. Because as we all know…there is always more to learn:)

With Wealthy Affiliate everything is continuously updated, nothing is ever out-of-date.

As you go through the lessons, you’ll learn so much new information in such a short amount of time.

It is truly amazing just how much you can learn so quickly.

But like I said earlier…

  • You don’t need any special skills coming into this.
  • You don’t need to know coding.
  • You don’t have to have a degree.

The only thing that you do need is determination and willpower to want to succeed. If you have those two things you’ve got this!!

Determination Willpower

Wealthy Affiliate teaches you not only how to build your own website but also gives you the necessary tools to do so.

Build your own website

I mentioned earlier the keyword research tool…it’s called Jaaxy.

Jaaxy is a very powerful research tool that basically is what’s going to give you the edge over others in getting your keywords and helping you to get ranked in Google, Yahoo and Bing!


It’s incredibly useful and so easy to use. Jaaxy is going to become your best friend:)

How Much Does Wealthy Affiliate Cost You Ask…???

Well…it’s not going to cost you an arm and a leg! But you’re probably thinking…OK, yeah right sure…what’s it going to cost me?

Believe it or not, Wealthy Affiliate has a free membership they call a Starter Membership and it’s great because you can literally get started without spending a dime.

You can create your free starter account right here without entering any payment information.

Wealthy Affiliate does actually have two memberships. They have the Free Starter Membership and they have the paid Premium Membership. Premium cost $49/month or $359/year depending on how you pay.

So what I am going to suggest is that you start as a free member. I mean why not take advantage?!

You’ll create your Starter Membership account completely risk-free, and with that remember you get access to everything you need to get started!

You get…

And sure the Premium Membership has a lot more to offer, but there’s no point in starting out with that. You can always see what you think and feel it out with the Starter Membership, and then you can upgrade later to the Premium Membership once you feel good about things.

Because I’m going to say right now…you WILL feel good about things and upgrade to your Premium Membership🙂


I have to say after I read my first Wealthy Affiliate article that night, I could feel the sincerity and realness about them.

And, like I always do… I looked for reviews on WA and for the life of me, I really had a hard time finding anything negative about Wealthy Affiliate.

Of course, there are always those who are going to write negative comments to bring traffic to there website. But the overall feeling from people is that WA has a very good reputation.

What is really awesome is the constant flow of success stories and exciting posts from members who share their achievements, milestones, breakthroughs…and others chime in to celebrate with them!


I’m sure you have many questions by now. Here are some questions that I think most people have…

How much money can I make?

You know that’s kind of a tough question to answer. Because it boils down to how much work and effort do you want to put in, how hard are you willing to work? It just all depends on a lot of things like that

Another very common question is…

How long does it take to start earning money?

This is another tough one to answer…typically you’re not going to see money in your first month, and probably not in your second month either.

It is possible to start seeing money in your third month, maybe.

Again, it all depends on a lot of different factors… How much work do you put into it?  How much time are you able to commit to it?  If you have another full-time job and a family?

How do you get people, or traffic, to your website?

Great question!  WA focuses traffic generation through Search Engine Optimization or SEO. This is something that you will learn through your lessons. You don’t have to know anything about it, so don’t worry about it.  And what is so nice about this is there is no paid advertising needed to get this traffic, it is literally 100% free!

More questions?

If you still have any questions you can easily get in direct contact with me inside WA.

Once you’ve created your Free Account, you can contact me through private message. Just go to my profile at MISSCHRISS and you’ll see where you can send a message…

But first you have to create your free account 🙂

Oh… I forgot to mention.

There is a discount on your Premium Membership. You can get the first month at $19 instead of $49… Which is a 61% discount.

But I still recommend starting with the Free Starter Membership.

So whenever you’re ready to make the switch to the Premium Membership that offer is still on the table;)

Go ahead and make your move!! Sign up for your Free Membership and explore the WA world and all it has to offer you!

See you soon:)

  2. Hello Chris,

    Nice, concise preview you’ve written about Wealthy Affiliate. I enjoyed your post cos you were very down-to-earth in your write up. Anyone can start off with a free account but it’s almost a certainty that they’ll surely opt in for an upgrade.

    In my opinion, Wealthy Affiliate is the best place to learn how to own and monetize your blog.

    Warm regards,


  3. Thank you for writing this article about Wealthy Affiliate. I have read so many positive reviews on this online training platform, including success stories of many of its members. I must say I am really impressed and I am curious to try hoping that my dream of becoming my own boss will someday materialize.

    I can’t say I hate my job because I actually like what  I do. What I do  not like is the idea that as long as I’m working for someone else, I will never have time freedom. 

    So, looking at what’s inside Wealthy Affiliate and the potential of working for myself, I would like to give it a shot and sign up for the starter membership. Just wondering though if it is necessary to upgrade to premium membership in order to make this thing work. Or I can remain a free member for as long as I want but will be making good money to be able to quit my job. 

    What do you suggest based on your experience?

    1. Hi Alice! The choice is completely yours. I say get in there with the free membership…it really has so much to offer you. And then if you feel like YOU need (or want) more information to move your business forward…that is a choice you can make.

      That’s the beauty of Wealthy Affiliate:)

      Give it a shot…you’ve got nothing to lose!! Best wishes to you Alice:)


  4. Wealthy affiliate truly is one of a kind. With an amazing community, there is no get rich quick scheme. Just encouragement and hard work. Anyone can benefit from this program, both free and premium but the premium is worth every penny. I strongly suggest that anyone looking to gain the skills necessary to succeed in the online business world, check out wealthy affiliate!
