I had a numbers of online friends asked me if I knew anything about a company which called Wealthy Affiliate, because they heard about some good things about them. In the beginning,  my thought was just to take a look what’s it all about.

I decided to sign up Wealthy Affiliate for a free account to discover and take a “investigation” to look more further what it is about. There are not much website which leads and makes you to take a look more further, because I do not want to miss out any potentially and lucratively opportunity.

After a day later, I decided to upgrade my account to Premium member, which took me to look more further and see what are the differences between a Free member and Premium member. There have a lot more functions are unlocked exclusively to Premium Member than a Free member.

For example, Free member cannot send private messages to Premium Members, and so to the owners Kyle and Carson, no live training weekly, only for 1 session of online training, 2 free websites given to be built up, no 24/7 live help if you have any website matters. But Premium members does, included web hosting, SSL encryption, Virus protection, up to 50 websites you can build up, over +1000 training with videos and text based modules, etc. After 7 months at Wealthy Affiliate, I decided to write my review with my findings on whether it is a good program to sign up with, or not.

What is Wealthy Affiliate?

Wealthy Affiliate (WA) is about “making money online” by using the most economical, and organically ways.

If you are new to all of these, have already signed up with WA for free but don’t know what you’re supposed to do, then I’ll very briefly explain what it’s all about.

It’s about blogging. You start your own blog/ website on a specific theme (Niche).

The theme (“Niche“) can be anything you like. Your hobby, something you love, something you know a lot about. You share your knowledge and passion with your readers.

On your blog, you recommend related products to your readers.
Each time your reader buys your recommended product, you will receive a commission.

This is the rough idea of it. You’ll gradually work it out as you go along, but there are a lot more. Wealthy Affiliate provides online business opportunities, the fastest WordPress-exclusive web hosting, keyword research tool (Jaaxy), affiliate marketing training, live training weekly, 24/7 live chat, 24/7/365 Technical Support with professional team standby, and a huge member community to help with your questions.

Wealthy Affiliate Review

Wealthy Affiliate is about enjoying blogging, writing and sharing while making commissions in affiliate marketing.

It is NOT about :

× Selling – you DO NOT need to set up an online shop.
× Network marketing – you DO NOT need to reach people to sell anything.
× You DO NOT need to buy anything. You can start free for as long as you like, but the Premium membership (recommended) fee is all you need. You can unlocked all of sections that limited to Free members.

    This review is intriguing to me. I have been looking at different online opportunities to make money and haven’t been able to find one that seemed 100% legit yet. I am very skeptical and slow to spend money. With the free trial and the benefits to that, I suppose it might be worth giving it a shot and see how it goes. I can see the many benefits of becoming a premium member though as well. Can I start free and then upgrade later if I wish to do so?

    1. Ling

      Hello Cheyenne, thank you for your comment. There have plenty ways that you can make money online, but how to determine legit one, and that’s the decision you will need to make. Yes you can start Wealthy Affiliate for free first, and it’s included 7 days free for the premium membership discovery, and you can upgrade later. There you will see the trainings and successful stories under our certified members. If you have any questions, you can ask me, and I’m willing to help you as much as I can. Let us know if you have any ideas about how to make money online or so. Cheers.
