A wealthy affiliate 6 month review

Having somewhere online that you can go to get the up to date information that needs to help you make money online is vital. Today I am going to do a Wealthy Affiliate Review. WA is an online affiliate marketing training website. The review will be based on my time within the community of the website including the training, support, and tools they offer.

Before we dive into the full review Let’s just answer the question – What is Affiliate Marketing?

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.

Okay so Let’s see what Wealthy Affiliate is all about.

Wealthy Affiliate Site Overview

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

  • Name – Wealthy Affiliate
  • Website – http://wealthyaffiliate.com

  • Price – Starter FREE Premium $49 a month Less 40% for a yearly membership
  • Overall Rating – 9.9 out of 10

You Can Sign Up For Free

Upon signing up for the free account on Wealthy Affiliate I was directed through to the main members’ area, there is a lot going on but the first thing you are instructed to do is complete your profile …. this is just like any other online profile.

Just use a great head and shoulders image of yourself is recommended (and you are more likely to get other members’ to connect with you). I also added a description too. This can be a few words or a lengthy piece it’s up to you.

On completing these tasks 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! LOL

Create Your Website In 30 Seconds

The website’s section is where you can build your own websites. The websites are built on the WordPress platform which in my opinion is the best platform in the world. As a Starter member, you can create 2 websites absolutely free of charge, no need for a domain name or hosting.

Where else can you get that deal ?… In total, you can have up to 50 that’s right FIFTY of your own websites hosting on their platform… it’s just incredible!

Site Manager

The site manager allows you to see all your sites from one easy dashboard, enabling you to log in directly from Wealthy Affiliate and change passwords as well as monitoring the health of your site.

Site Builder

This section gives you just one click to install the website .. it honestly takes you 30 seconds no lie. For the non-tech y person, this is a dream.

If you have your own domain you can use it, 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 … I did this to test it out… Worked a treat I did then buy a domain and they switched over the site and Newbie Affiliate was born.

Site Content

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.

I have just reached a milestone of 50 posts published through this system. Not bad for someone that failed English … TWICE!

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.

Tools To Help You Included

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.

  • 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 “.

Chat With Other Members

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. I do find myself live chats somewhat frustrating and don’t use it that much but this is just personal preference.

They Have Got You Covered

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

Don’t forget the classrooms! These are discussion rooms for set areas of online marketing, ask your question and someone will help you out.

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

6 Months On

Well, I have now been a member for six 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.

Last 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 know there are still loads to learn and my site will continue to grow.

My network within the WA community is now over 1600 followers and growing every day.

Here’s proof. I have mashed up a few images to save some space…

  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!

    1. 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

    1. 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. 

    1. 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.

    1. 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!

    1. 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.

    1. 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.

    1. 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. 

    1. 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. 

    1. 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.

    1. 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
