Wealthy Affiliate Review

2023 Wealthy Affiliate Review
All You Need To Know About The Training, Resources, Support
& How You Can Earn Money As A Free Member.

Welcome to my website. My name’s Richard, and I’ve made this Wealthy Affiliate review as detailed and informative as possible so that I can give you a lot more than just the ‘bare bones’ that you’ll find in most of them that are out there on Google. Hopefully I’ll achieve this without confusing the hell out of you!

Wealthy Affiliate Review - The Author, Richard

I will show you all the training, resources and support available to you, as well as the different ways you can make money with Wealthy Affiliate alongside it’s ‘core’ purpose of online Affiliate Marketing.

I have been self-employed – both part time and full time – since 2004 and I have made many mistakes and fallen for a few scams along the way, so I want to help you to avoid some of the trips and traps I’ve fallen into over the years.

I will try to answer any questions you may have so that you can make an informed decision about whether Wealthy Affiliate fits in with what you’re looking for.

Before I joined Wealthy Affiliate, I had absolutely no idea about online affiliate marketing or how to write a blog post, and I didn’t believe I could build a website in a million years!

So, if you’re as ‘green’ as I was back then, don’t worry! It’s a lot simpler than you think!


So, What Exactly Is Wealthy Affiliate?

Wealthy Affiliate is the World’s #1 blogging & online marketing training platform.

Wealthy Affiliate Review - Transform Your Ideas Into Profit Showing Icons Representing Various Niches

In a Nutshell, Wealthy Affiliate is a ‘one stop shop’ website building, hosting and publishing platform specifically geared towards ‘net newbies’ which will give you all the skills, resources and support you need to start, manage and grow a successful online marketing business or create a dynamic online presence for a conventional ‘bricks and mortar’ business.

Introducing Kyle & Carson
The Owners & Co-Founders Of Wealthy Affiliate

Kyle is the ‘public face’, if you like, of Wealthy Affiliate. He is a highly experienced and accomplished online marketer and he will be taking you through the training modules as you watch over his shoulder in the step by step intuitive videos.

The Pros And Cons Of Wealthy Affiliate


Pro’sPro #1  Simple to follow, step by step intuitive training designed with the ‘newbie’ in mind.
Pro #2  All in one robust website building, management, hosting & domain registration.
Pro #3  24/7 Expert support and super fast response times.

Con #1 Sheer volume of information can appear a little overwhelming for newbies.
Con #2 Easy to get sucked into the ‘social’ side of the Community forum.
Con #3 Anyone can contribute to Community discussions regardless of experience so occasionally answers to some questions may be inaccurate or confusing, however well-intended.

What I found very refreshing is that the biggest critics of Wealthy Affiliate are actually Kyle and Carson themselves – fact.

They are the first ones to acknowledge that the system is not perfect – and let’s be honest, no system is perfect – and they are both constantly striving to improve the User experience and give us Members the best they can.

When all is said and done, it is not the amount or the quality of the training and support that’s going to cut it. It’s what you do with it that matters.

There is some negative commentary out there, but it has to be said that there is often an agenda behind it. To be blunt, the bulk of the gripes come from people in the following categories:

Wealthy Affiliate Review - 90 Day 'Think About It' Program

  • Former Members who joined with unrealistic expectations of being millionaires in a few months. They may have dabbled but they were not persistent and consistent with the training. Some may never have actually started it in the first place. We get ’em all!
  • Then there are those who’ve never actually been involved with Wealthy Affiliate who find it easier to trash the competition than to talk positively about the supposed benefits of whatever products or services they may be offering. Many of these self-styled ‘experts’ do not do any prior due diligence before hammering their keyboards and frequently just copy and paste from each other’s blogs.

Negative psychology is usually easy to spot, however, and thankfully such people are in a minority.

Is Wealthy Affiliate A ‘Get-Rich-Quick’ Scheme?

NO! Wealthy Affiliate absolutely is NOT a Get Rich Quick Scheme. It Is A SYSTEM, And As Such It Works If YOU Do!

Wealthy Affiliate Review - There Are No Shortcuts On The Road To Success

Many online business opportunities, especially in the Network Marketing space, try to pull you in by focusing you on the end result – ‘the dream’ – rather than what it takes to get there, usually with lots of cheesy pictures of beautiful people standing next to sports cars on the driveways of huge mansions or sipping cocktails by the pool.

Wealthy Affiliate, on the other hand, are very up front about the focus, patience, persistence and effort you will need to put in to build yourself a successful online business. For those who stick with it, the results are evident in the many success stories of our Members.

Almost all the successful people in Wealthy Affiliate started out working it part-time around existing job or family commitments, using the same 24 hours a day that are available to you and me.

They simply know how to use what time they have productively and efficiently, and they understand that the only place where success comes before work is in the dictionary.

Let’s look at each of these in turn:

Wealthy Affiliate Online Entrepreneur Certification Training

Wealthy Affiliate Review - Modules Contained In The Online Entrepreneur Certification Course

The Online Entrepreneur Certification Course consists of 5 Phases and walks you through the process of creating and growing a business in any niche you like.

Phase 3 – Making Money (Premium & Premium Plus Members)
Phase 4 – Mastering Social Engagement (Premium & Premium Plus Members)

Lesson 2 – Comment On At Least 2 Other People’s Goals
Lesson 3 – Tell Us If You Plan On Making It To The Las Vegas Conference (held annually)
Lesson 4 – Watch The WA Affiliate Program Walk-Through Video

IMPORTANT (again!) I’ll reiterate here about why I believe you should do the OEC first even if you are already experienced at making money online. It proves – both to you and to anyone you may introduce to Wealthy Affiliate later on – that you are not limited to making money with Weatlhy Affiliate just by promoting Wealthy Affiliate.

IMHO, that’s what makes Weatlhy Affiliate stand out as 100% legit. It is only my personal opinion, though, so feel free to ignore me and do your own thing if you wish!

Each of those ‘sub-niches’ can then be further narrowed down again and again to enable you to ‘laser target’ your audience and increase your chance of sales. The ‘Find A Brand’ function will throw up Domain name suggestions based on those sub-niches for your website.

Other ways that Premium & Premium Plus Members can earn additional internal income within Wealthy Affiliate are:

The Awesome Benefits Of Wealthy Affiliate Premium / Premium Plus Memberships

After I’d seen how good just the Free Wealthy Affiliate membership was, I could see the enormous value of Premium Membership and it was a no-brainer to upgrade, which I did in my first week.

IMPORTANT (again….seriously….?)

Yes…because it’s YOUR money! I would advize upgrading to Premium initially, doing the OEC and / or Bootcamp trainings – or both if you wish – and taking the weekly classes during that time before upgrading to Premium Plus, so as to avoid both overload and overspend. That’s just my opinion, and it’s entirely up to you.

I will be offering you some extra awesome BONUSES of my own as well!

Let me just remind you here that there is no obligation with Free Membership and you don’t ever need to upgrade if you don’t want to, but there are so many advantages to doing so and it’s such great value for money that I’m sure you’ll want to do so. To see the wealth of additional benefits of Premium Membership, take a peek inside.

Premium comes in at just $49 a month ($588 over the year) and Premium Plus at $99 a month ($1188 over the year).

For even better value for money, the Annual Memberships reduce those to $497 (saving you $91) for Premium and $697 (saving you $491) for Premium Plus!

You can switch to annual membership from monthly at any time. You don’t have to do this straight away, or even at all, if you’re unable or don’t wish to commit to a full year’s membership.

And don’t forget – You will get that extra Website if you upgrade within your first 7 days. That’s an ADDITIONAL INCOME STREAM for you!

Wealthy Affiliate Review - Wealthy Affiliate Gives You All You Need To Build A Successful Online Business. All It Takes Is Effort From You.

Remember, this is a BUSINESS, and when you compare it to the cost of a franchise ($60,000 equivalent here in the UK), it is an absolute bargain when you consider what it can give you without all the headaches associated with running a conventional ‘bricks and mortar’ business.

When I first started out, I looked at it this way:

$49 Monthly membership (a total investment of $588 over the year) breaks down to $1.61 a day, or $11 and a few Cents a week which is roughly £8.50  here in the UK at the time of writing.

I asked myself what personal and non-essential luxuries could I sacrifice over the week to save the money to fund my own income producing asset which would pay me as much as I was prepared to work for 24/7 for life on autopilot?

Well, here’s what £8.50 will buy on this side of the Atlantic in 2023:

  • Around 11 or 12 cigarettes out of a pack of 20 (I’m a non-smoker by the way, This is purely illustrative!)
  • 2 pints of beer down the pub, or 1 pint and a glass of wine if I take my Wife with me!
  • A bacon sandwich and a mug of tea at one of the cheaper cafes in town twice a week or….
  • A cappuccino and a blueberry muffin at Starbucks if I’m feeling ‘posh’ and its on special offer!

Upgrading is purely optional. You will never be pressured by any of those annoying up sells which feature in many of the other programs which are out there.

  1. Hey I have heard little about the Wealthy Affiliate from a friend, having stumbled into this article, I now have a better perspective of it, indeed it seems to be a unique platform with relevant tools one needs to build an effective and long lasting online businesses and website and a good place for ‘newbies’. 

    I think I need to belong to this community.

  2. So far, I have been with Wealthy Affiliate for a week and a half. I went as a Premium Member after just 3 days because I see the value in there, and this comes from my experience as a media buyer for a company that does a lot of affiliate marketing. I wished I have done this back then in 2005 when it started, instead of going to college.

    • Great to see you’re having such a positive experience at Wealthy Affiliate, Juan, and well done on upgrading to Premium so quickly.
      Looks like you saw the potential straight away so you’re mindset is right from Day 1!
      I also wish I’d found Wealthy Affiliate years ago and also wish I’d written this post a week earlier as you might just have joined with me!

  3. By your review here, it looks like Wealthy Affiliate is now the world’s unrivaled online business training platform, that even those popular platforms like Clickbank University can’t provide what Wealthy Affiliate is providing like access to website building tools while you’re undergoing your training. 

    There’s just one thing that puzzles me and maybe I can have the answer by asking you or by getting inside as a new member.

    You said in one of the cons here that sheer volume of information can appear a little bit overwhelming for newbies. Are they not designing their training in a manner in which a beginner won’t be able to access a more advanced section unless he finish first the prerequisite lessons so he will be able to unlock the succeeding lessons?

    • Hi Gomer

      Thanks for stopping by.

      Great question. Free Starter members get access to the first 2 modules of each course, but someone can join as a Premium member from Day 1 and have access to all the information inside Wealthy Affiliate with no prior knowledge or experience.

      The first 2 modules available to Free Starter Members are entry level and give the newbie good foundational knowledge and in the first 7 days they still have Premium level access to everything inside the system.

      It’s really down to new members – be they Starter or Premium – to focus on the training rather than get themselves ‘sucked in’ to the level of interaction and the sheer volume of information available within the Community. 

      Thinking ‘OMG, have I got to learn all that?’ was a mistake in my early days and it took me a lot longer to get stuck in to the training as a result as a result of unnecessary and entirely self-imposed ‘panic’ if that’s not too strong a word. 

      That’s not so much a criticism of Wealthy Affiliate as a bit of self-critical take which many people who’ve progressed through the training and built great online businesses can also attest to themselves. Apologies if I gave a slightly mis-leading impression there. 

      An experienced Community member summed it up for me in a way I found very re-assuring ‘You can’t eat an elephant all at once, but you can do it in bite sized chunks’. That’s stayed with me ever since!



  4. This is a very good Wealthy Affiliate review.

    I would agree that when it comes to Affiliate marketing and building websites Wealthy Affiliate has the best training on there. This community has many success stories to prove that their training really does works and I would encourage persons to give Wealthy Affiliate a try and see for themselves.

    I wish you all the Best!

    • Hey Rajko

      Thanks for taking time out to comment.

      I’ve been in a few other programs and I have to agree with you. 

      Just wondering what other programs have you been involved with and in what ways would you say Wealthy Affiliate improves on them?

      It’d be great to hear of your experiences.

      Wishing you the best back, buddy 🙂



  5. Hello Rich, wow what wonderful content you have here.

    I was actually doing some research online when I saw your post online, thanks for sharing such amazing concise information with us all. It’s been very useful for me!

    I’ve bookmarked this post so as to come back for future reference, thanks for the info!

    • You’re very welcome and thanks for such a positive comment!

      Great to know that you’ve bookmarked my review and I look forward to welcoming you into Wealthy Affiliate when you’re ready to join us. There’s no rush. The timing has to be right for you but I promise you won’t regret it!

  6. Like almost everybody now, I am also looking for ways to make some extra cash from home.

    I liked it when you showed and explained the training, resources, and support one gets when enrolled in Wealthy Affiliate.

    Another thing that overwhelmed me was learning that I can start for free. I must confess I believed that most of the affiliate programs and courses were scams and that it would take me years and an arm and a leg!

    • Hi Joao

      It was the ability to ‘try before you buy’ that appealed to me as well. Even better, is that there is no time limit to free starter membership. You never have to get your credit card out if you don’t want!

      I very quickly saw the enourmous benefits of Premium membership though, and I upgraded within my first week to take advantage of the half-price first month offer. I went Annual very soon afterwards as well, saving myself even more money!

      There are a lot of scams out there as you correctly say, and I’ve been suckered into a few of them too. Even some of the genuine programs out there aren’t that great. Wealthy Affiliate is by far and away the best in terms of both quality and value for money that I’ve come across.

      Looking forward to meeting you on the inside and wishing you much success, my friend 🙂

  7. I got to know about Wealthy Affiliate while searching for ways to make money online. 

    I read some mixed comments about it and wanted to read a full tried and tested review like this one which has answered all my questions. 

    Wealthy Affiliate seems to be a very good option for new businesses especially with great pricing for the training and the website hosting packages. The pros and cons that are mentioned in such an elaborate manner really help to form an opinion about Wealth Affiliate. 

    I think I am going to give it a try. Thanks for sharing such a good and complete review, Richard.

    • I’m really glad you found the review of benefit, Samantha.

      I’ve tried to include everything I could possibly think of based on my own experiences as a Premium members without being biased. This is why I put so much effort into the pros and cons. I think people need to know everything before they can make a properly informed decision as to whether Wealthy Affiliate is right for them or not.

      You’re right about the hosting package. I’d challenge anyone to come up with a package that comes anywhere near it for value, especially with all the high quality training as well.
