How I Gained Success With Wealthy Affiliate (Full Review)

man working from home on laptopHave you ever wanted to have your very own business online?

Today I am going to show you how I earn hundreds of dollars every month and how you can too. But before I do just think for one moment how you could spend that extra cash.

Maybe you would take some time out on vacation, travel the world, buy a new car or just pay off debts the choice is yours obviously.

Let’s face it working 9-5 is hard work these days, you never get the freedom you crave for. Working weekends, taking just one holiday a year. You want more don’t you, well so did I but as you can see I now receive another income stream…

affiliate commissions

In a moment I will show you how you can follow the path I took!

Before I dive in, let me ask you a question – Do You Know What Affiliate Marketing is?

This is crucial for what I am about to show you… so let’s answer this first.

Affiliate marketing is when you promote another company s product and service and when someone buys these products or services you get paid a commission. These commissions will vary from 1% right up to 100%.

It is an amazing way to generate extra or even full-time income from the comfort of your own home without having the hassle of holding stock or creating products.

There is, like most things a bit more to it to make this a successful business. The internet is always changing and one of the most valuable tools is being able to learn and replicate from other people who have already been successful.

Are you ready to follow me through the process I have taken to start your own business?

Firstly, I going to show you the website I joined that holds the key to your success. That site is called Wealthy Affiliate but before I show you step by step how to join here are a few stats.

There are two membership levels a Starter (free) and Premium ($49 a month or a 40% cheaper yearly option)

  • Name – Wealthy Affiliate
  • Website –
  • Owners – Kyle & Carson
  • Price – Starter FREE Premium $49 a month Less 40% for a yearly membership
  • Overall Rating – 9.9 out of 10

How You Can Sign Up For Free For Wealthy Affiliate

Step1 – To join as a free starter member all you need to do is fill in a few details such as email and name and then you have your free account on Wealthy Affiliate simple and painless as no credit card is required. The page will look like this…

Step2 – Next you want to complete your profile with an image of yourself, this will mean that more people are likely to connect with you, you can then learn more from them and succeed much quicker. I have well over 2,000 people in my network just by being active and many are full-time income earners, it’s no wonder I succeeded! Remember you can to 🙂

A great head and shoulders image of yourself is recommended (and you are more likely to get other members’ to connect with you).

Step 3 – I then added a description to my profile page which people always comment on when connecting. This can be a few words or a lengthy piece it’s up to you. Tip: Tell your story, where you have been, what led you to Wealthy Affiliate and where you want to be in the future.

On completing these tasks you will have members connecting with you I had over 20 members connect with me instantly which was very reassuring that others were there, all offering support and guidance.

You don’t get that on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter! LOL

Step 4 – The final thing I would do before exploring what the site has to offer is to create your goals. You are more likely to achieve these goals if they are written down.

Yah! well done you are in and up and running.

Create Your First Website In 10 Minutes

As I mentioned previously I created my website within minutes and you can too it’s super simple! The website’s section is where you can do this. In a minute I will walk you through the process so you can see how easy it is.

As a Starter member, you can create 2 websites absolutely free of charge, no need for a domain name or hosting. Although, as your website grows I would recommend that you buy a domain and hosting I did exactly that and I will cover this process later on in the article.

Where else can you get two free websites and hosting without paying a dime! Answers in the comments below haha! In fact, when you upgrade you can have up to 50 that’s right FIFTY of your own websites hosting on their platform… it’s just incredible!

But, before I got into that let’s show you just how simple it is to create your website.


creating your first website on wealthy affilateStep 1 – From your dashboard head over the websites and then choose the site builder option.

Step 2 – If you have your own domain you can use it here, or purchase one directly from the Wealthy Affiliate site. They even give you the option to create a domain on their hosting platform for free and that’s exactly what I did.

Add in a few other details and a couple of minutes later I had my site live on the internet… Voila!

How simple and easy was that!

Now to create some content…

Content Is King!

Wealthy Affiliate has made creating content so simple for you. Within Site content, you can create pages and posts and then upload directly to your site without even going onto your site. I personally have never seen this before and again for those not familiar with the WordPress dashboard it makes it crazy easy to populate your website with content. Before you know it you will have your first blog post written.

I have always struggled with writing in fact, I never did pass my English exams. Even with this in just under a year I have published well over 100,000 words through this system. I also have loads of keywords ranking in the search engines too but more on that later in this post.

site content figures


All of the above features are available to Starter members’ so there really isn’t an easier way to get a free website live on the internet and start creating amazing content that ranks.

Tools To Help You

Within the Starter membership, you also get access to their own keyword research tool Jaaxy plus you can have up to 30 searches (which I found to be plenty for loads of research)

On the premium membership, you get access to Jaaxy lite for free which includes unlimited searches, plus you can track historical rankings and monitor your website authority. Building and managing your keyword lists can be done on the platform as well as spying on your competition.

Finding relevant affiliate programs within your niche is another feature you can use too.

What Information Do You Get?

When you do a search through Jaaxy you will get the following information.

jaaxy lite keyword tool in wealthy affiliate

  • Keyword – You get a list of keywords or phrases relevant to the keyword you typed into the search bar
  • Avg – The average number of searches made for this keyword in one month
  • Traffic – The approximate amount of traffic you could achieve with a first-page ranking
  • QSR – Quoted Search Results the number of competing websites ranked in Google for that exact keyword.
  • KQI – Keyword quality indicator evaluates the quality of the keyword green is good red is bad

I actually used Jaaxy to get the keyword term ” a Wealthy Affiliate Review “.

Unlimited Support

The live chat facility is great to ask questions or meet like-minded people. You get access for 7 days as a Starter member. I found that members’ were very quick to answer any queries I had and offer support and encouragement too. This is great for building relationships which help enormously going forward.

They Have Got You Covered

The support has been amazing, both Kyle and Carson (the owners) have both offered help on any questions and you can even private message them if needed. If further support is needed, then WA has its own help center with a team of dedicated professionals ready to help you out.

Having already had communication with both owners and plenty of helpful community members’ I have found the support second to none.

Well, I have now been a member for 12 months now and I have started to get some amazing results. I have managed to gain the number one rankings in Google for certain keywords and now have traffic flowing every day to my site.

My best month I had over 10,000 page views with a really low bounce rate too. I have never had this before with any of my other sites. I am now achieving hundreds of dollars across various products and services that I recommend.

The best part of this is that you too can achieve success.

YES there is work involved

YES there will be costs as there is with any business

YES, it can take time to see results… But all I have done is follow the training and implemented it. First as a starter member and then I took advantage of the yearly premium membership which I have just renewed again (with some of the last months’ commissions).

  1. Thanks for the great review of WA!  I’m a member myself and have to say your review is spot-on.

    If i were to rate the three major offerings (Community, Training and Hosting) it would be in that order.  By far, the community is the best part of WA.  If you ever have a question, hit a snag, need help or want to bounce an idea off someone, the community is more than happy to help.  That’s not to say that training and hosting lack in some way.  They don’t.  It’s just that the community is so amazing.

    WA gives you everything you need to succeed and they don’t make promises of making money in x days or y dollars a month.  What they do promise is to provide the training you need to become successful online and they deliver on that promise.  Is success guaranteed, no, but the only reason for failure is lack of effort on your side as WA does provide, what I would argue is, the best platform out there.

    If you’re even the slightest bit curious, do yourself a favor and sign up for the free account.  If, after you’ve looked it over, you decide it’s not for you, you’re only out the time you spent to check it out but, if you see the value WA provides, you’ve taken one of the biggest steps in your online business ventures.

    Thanks again!

    • Hey Scott, Great to hear from another WA member and that you feel similar to myself in the quality of the community and training. Like you say grabbing a free account to ease your curiosity is certainly a no brainer! 

      I wish continued success and look forward to chatting more within the Wealthy Affiliate platform. 

  2. Hi Martin,

    You have done an excellent job providing all the information necessary to make an informed decision on whether to participate in either of the wealthy affiliate programs.

    As an affiliate marketer myself this program is head and shoulders above anything else being offered online at this point in time, and your review confirms that I made the right decision.

    Thanks for your research and spot on presentation of this opportunity.

    All the best.

    Kyle Ann

    • Thanks Kyle Ann, glad you found the review informative. 

      Great to see you have experienced WA too 🙂

  3. Any online training that guarantee you success is something to avoid. No one can give you that kind of affirmation because achieving full income online is a long ordeal. People can layout the steps for you, but without taking massive action, even the best training will not produce you any results. Fortunately, Wealthy Affiliate has a system in place to keep your action in check. The training checklist and the use of the comment system are some of the features I like about the platform. 

    • Hi Cathy, You are of course so right, having the best tools and training is never going to make you successful. Applying the information learnt and taking massive action is definitely the way to go. 

  4. Hi, you got the perfect program for affiliate marketing here. It is amazing how much information about this topic is being shared on the platform.

    Not only the 100 + lessons in the ordinary training or the live webinar coming up every Friday, but also the great community with hundreds of experts that work daily on their online businesses and share their experience.

    I’m with Wealthy Affiliate for almost 2 years now and still I can learn more. Of course there are so many advantages this unique all in one program offers.

    I am here because WA offers a free starter pack. One click and you’re only minutes away from building your first own website. I love that.

    • Great to get some views from a veteran WA member Stefan. Indeed being one click away from building your first website is a huge plus.

  5. Hi Martin. Thanks for such an in-depth review of Wealthy Affiliate. I can certainly see that you get a lot of bang for your buck. Or in this case, a lot of bang for FREE! There are definitely many reasons why someone who is serious about starting an online business would benefit from all the training that is available. I think it is a great idea that you can join for free and still get a lot of the benefits. Sort of like getting your toes wet first. Thanks again!

    • Hi Mary Ann, thanks for leaving your view on WA it certainly is an amazing site, and like you say a great idea that you can dip your toes first… 🙂

  6. I love this review on Wealthy affiliate. I finally signed up for premium membership and am already seeing the benefits. After a year of trying to start up online marketing, I didn’t make my first sale until I signed up with WA, and to top it off, it feels like REAL training, not just fake training that’s constantly trying to upsell. It’s a legit community of entrepreneurs, thank you again for this review.

    • Hey Sidney, Thanks for your comments and massive congratulations on your first sale online. I wish you continued success. 

  7. Wealthy Affiliate can guarantee success if you follow the training and work hard. It’s something anyone can do if they put their minds to it.

    The only way you won’t succeed is if you quit. Quitting isn’t an option.You have laid out everything as to just how Wealthy Affiliate is. There’s no shortcuts. They offer you all the tools you need.

    Find your passion. Build your website. Get traffic. Create Income.You can join for free and upgrade to premium and get all you need to build your website and make your dreams come true.

    Thanks for a great detailed for someone looking to succeed with Wealthy Affiliate!

  8. As a member of Wealthy Affiliate all I can say is that this is a great review and every word you say is true.  Wealthy Affiliate offers the tools and training and all a person needs is to be able to do the work and put the tools into place.  If you are reading this review and you are on the fence then Im here to tell you that its okay to get off the fence.

  9. Honestly I would say success is guaranteed here. I knew absolutely nothing about websites, stuck with it for a year, and now I’m actually making money. It’s weird to think about lol but it genuinely works if you put in the effort. I highly recommend it.

    • Great to see that you are making money Jasmere, what better way to endorse WA … I wish you continued success

  10. This is another great review of a Program that I have joined myself and I could not be happier. Very well written and explained; even though you don’t need to convince me of how good the program is I hope many other people will find it useful because just like you said it it is a great community, with great training and mentors and plenty of things to learn.

  11. Thanks for this review about Wealthy affiliates. Although I’m a new member, there has been a great turn around since I joined as far as I can tell. I wish I’ve joined earlier than I did. Wealthy Affiliates is the best thing I’ve come across when it comes to being successful online. 

    • Good that WA is working for you and you are getting some great success

  12. Thanks, Marrin for sharing your Wealthy Affiliate review. Great job. I’m a WA member, also. I agree wealthy affiliate is excellent for experienced people, like those with a sales or web development background. Your Wealthy Affiliate review really shows how a person with no skills at all, could use WA to build whatever they want. In any niche. God bless you brother. ~LeNard

  13. As a newbie, I’m still struggling on how to find the platform interesting.Before I joined this platform, a friend that introduce this platform to me told me that Wealth Affiliate is an online affiliate learning community that is second to none, on how to generate income irrespective of whether you are a beginner or expert.The support so far has been amazing, some experts with great icons are offering their help on any questions and you can private message them if needed. I hope with time, I would find this place a home to lay on.

  14. This an honest review and fully informative article about wealthy affiliate. I am also a member of the affiliate since January 22, 2019. I found the company one of the best platform where we can learn and earn both are available. As I a digital marketer I like theirs affiliate program, however your question is what is affiliate marketing? Affiliate marketing is when someone promote another company’s product and services and when someone buys these product or service marketer will get paid commission  It is an amazing way to generate extra or even full time income from the comfort of your own home without having the hassle of holding stock or creating products. Thank you very much for write the article.

  15. You have offered an exhausting review about wealthy affiliate and to the best of my knowledge,  you have pointed at virtually everything that makes it special.  The community,  the support,  the massive training,  access to communicate with the founders,  free trial membership,  getting free website hosting, jazzy keyword tool,  website launching within seconds and so much more.  Virtually everything is awesome about this platform and I’m more than glad I got to be a part of this big community of like minded entrepreneurs. 

    • Glad you approve of the review. Yes I have not seen a membership site like it before. I would urge anyone who wants to learn how to make money online then grab a free starter account

  16. Hi Martin,

    This is a great review of the Wealthy Affiliate Platform. The important thing I see is that this is not a get rich quick scheme but instead the platform provides you with everything yo need to succeed. It is also good that you can get a free sneak peek so you can decide whether you want to move to premium membership or not. Thanks for all the details you provided.

    • Thanks for dropping by and leaving your thoughts. I think it it very transparent to give people a free membership that way there is no pressure or hype to get people to upgrade

  17. I am interested in Wealthy Affiliate, but i have some (financial specific) question. I hope you can answer them, but I understand if you don’t want to go inti specifics.

    1. How long are you with WA?

    2. How long after joining did you start earning money? How much after 6 months? After a year?

    3. Are you earning a full time living now?

    • Thanks for your question of which I am happy to answer truthfully. I have been with WA just under 12 months, I started earning after a few months and now have regular monthly commissions which are growing every month. I am not yet earning a full time living but watch this space as I know it will not be that long now.

  18. With waealthy affilliate, i dont think that success is far fetched. I have seen many people who have joined the platform over time and they too can testify to the fact that there is success there. Even i despite joining a few months ago have started earning too. There are real testimonials and all this credit goes to the awesome training and the tools that have been put to place just so many people can make money with it. I will advise anyone to join. Nice post.

    • Amazing Henderson thats great you are already earning after just a few months well done, just more proof that the WA training is some of the best on the internet.

  19. The chances of achieving success as a member of the wealthy affiliate are very high and that success is very much achievable if you follow the training given to you on the platform and apply them to your blog when you start up one. You have said a lot here about wealthy affiliate and I can attest to it as well. Being a member is a privilege and to those who are members, they can give confirmation to it that it’s worth a try.

    • Thanks for your comments Benson I look forward to seeing your success shortly 🙂

  20. I love the fact that you have shown many people here on your website that it is very possible to make money with wealthy affiliate FREE. Your review on the platform here is really in-depth and very nice to read as well. I have to say that i am very impressed. I will give this tips a try myself and see how successful i can get. Thank you for this detailed insight.

    • Thanks for your comments John I am sure you will be succeeding too… keep in touch with your progress 🙂

  21. Starting an online business is something most people dream to do, and I have been following up the affiliate market and have seen the progress in it with the rate people are going into the business. Getting a platform to get training became a priority for me and I choose wealthy affiliate. With the rate at which I have seen so many success stories about it, I have hope I can also achieve success from the training program.

    • I have no doubt success will come to you Bella, lots of hard work ahead but it will be worth it long term.
