So here is my own unique, warts and all review of Wealthy Affiliate. I have been a member of Wealthy Affiliate for almost a year now and am really excited to let you guys know about the progress that has been made and my experiences with it! Read on for my Wealthy Affiliate review.

Starting Your Side Hustle


Here are the great benefits of Wealthy Affiliate,

  • Great training resources
  • Amazing online community
  • Live chat function
  • Access to Kyle, the founder
  • Ask a question and you will get tons of answers from really knowledgeable people
  • Loads of great tools included, such as;
    • Web hosting
    • Website builders
    • Purchase domains through Wealthy Affiliate or transfer your own

Here are a few things that I think could be made better,

  • Almost too much training and resources, can be overwhelming
  • Can receive way too many emails
  • The website builder doesn’t allow you to install the WordPress app, Jetpack, which is my favourite for site stats


If you are looking at ways to make money online, then Wealthy Affiliate is for you! I have been using Wealthy Affiliate for the past few months to improve my skills for making money online.

This is a list of people Wealthy Affiliate is great for,

  • Retirees
  • College students
  • Anyone after a side hustle
  • Stay at home mums
  • Anyone who is unemployed

So, basically it’s for anyone and everyone. It doesn’t matter what your age, background or qualifications, if you are interested in having your own website, being an entrepreneur, an Internet marketer or making money online, then you will find some value in signing up for Wealthy Affiliate.

What I will say is this is no quick rich scheme and if it was then it would be a scam and a waste of your time and money. What Wealthy Affiliate does need is commitment on your part to put in the hard work that is required and an Internet connection, of course!


One of the thing I actually find a bit overwhelming is the number of tools and training material that is available to you when you are Wealthy Affiliate member. Let’s look at the different training elements that are available;

  • Video tutorials
  • Interactive forums
  • Tutorials
  • Tasks based training
  • Live webinar training

As you can see there is a wide range of training material, which is great as you might prefer different ways of media to others to learn about affiliate marketing.

Like I said previously though, there is almost too much and some people say they are a bit overwhelmed, at first, at least. My advice would be to ask questions on the live chat and there will be loads other members who will be happy to help you.

Regarding the tools, there’s tons of great stuff for you to use when building a website like;

  • Keyword research tool, Jaaxy, as well as Wealthy Affiliate’s own keyword research tool
  • Easy to set up WordPress Express, website builder
  • Loads of WordPress themes to choose from
  • Website hosting
  • Rapid writer

If you are a free member, then you can set up two websites for free and that includes, hosting and WordPress, otherwise, as a premium member, you get unlimited website hosting, although to be fair you do have to pay for domain names.


The support at Wealthy Affiliate is a huge benefit. Some make money online programs have a set of training modulus that are great but don’t all for any Q&A or support if you get stuck on something. There is;

  • A question and answer facility
  • Live chat
  • Ask any questions of Kyle, Wealthy Affiliate founder!

Wealthy Affiliate has a massive community of about 800 000 members and there’s loads of great interactive features so you can chat with other member, get advice from them and ask them questions. This is something I really recommend to make the most of your membership.

Question and answer

Here is a question I have asked and within minutes started to receive answers!

I’d say one of the great things about this, is that you will never feel like you are alone, and if you do, just shout!


Free membership – $0 per month

Premium membership – $49 per month

One thing I really like about Wealthy Affiliate is that you can sign up for the free membership and get a taste for Wealthy Affiliate. You will be able to set up two websites and take part in some of the training. All for free. Not a free trial for a limited time. Just free membership.

This allows you to see if Wealthy Affiliate is really for you, without having to commit any of your hard earned cash. Hey, you might even be wondering, ‘is Wealthy Affiliate a scam?’. If you really are wondering that, then why not see for yourself without having to hand over your credit card details.

Well I did the same. I wasn’t exactly too sure about Wealthy Affiliate and decided to just sign up to the free membership. I followed the training and set up my own Google ranking website, and decided to invest in myself and make the leap to the premium membership.

If you are serious about investing in yourself, developing new skills and growing as a person, then I would recommend the premium membership whole heartedly. The training resources available and the support from other members in the Wealthy Affiliate community, is unrivalled in my experience.


If you are intrigued at ways to make money online, my recommendation is for you to sign up to Wealthy Affiliate. I would say you should back yourself and sign up for the premium membership if this is something you are really motivated about. But if you are still a bit unsure, or even think Wealthy Affiliate is a scam, then sign up for the free membership and see what all the fuss is about.

Remember though, to succeed on Wealthy Affiliate, or anything else at life, you must work hard consistently.

    Thank you for this honest review. It helps people like me who had tried so many online businesses that went no where or had very little mileage in the past. Now we know there is an affiliate program that is truly legit and can truly help us be successful. Your personal experience and the comments here that shared about their personal experience prove this is truly an honest review. And Wealth Affiliate is the choice if any one wishes to start an online business. Thanks!

  4. Graham says:

    I was a bit unsure at first after struggling over the years. It was the free sign up that got me to give it a try too. Best thing I ever did I have been a member for over a month and I am amazed how much I have learnt already. I agree The community is like no other I have ever come across and the support you get is second to no other business out there. Also the feeling you get knowing your not alone and the rapid response you always get is just amazing. It all keeps you focused and motivated to get stuck in everyday.

  6. Sean says:

    I like how you have a clean layout over the whole site. And every section is very succinct.

    However, I prefer Google Analytics over WP Jetpack for stats, and here’s why.

    Someone can land on your home page, then go to your About me page, then click through to another post, then go back to the home page, then click off the site.

    This would be counted as four different visits to your site rather than one person clicking through to different sites once landing in the home page. So this is why I really don’t like sing Jetpack, unless they have that glitch fixed.

    However, Google Analytics has a tendency to record “empty pings”, and they typically come off the west coast of the African Continent. I guess each analytics software has it’s glitches.

    Well, I wish you luck out there.

    1. Sean Dean ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

      Hi Sean, thanks for your thoughts on Jetpack and Google Analytics. If I’m honest, I use both and I have to agree that Google Analytics is the better option. It has much more depth of metrics and reporting. Jetpack allows me to check on my site stats at a glance on my phone and is really convenient. Thanks Sean

  7. Linah Jacob says:

    This review is interesting. You touched every area of Programs being undertaken by Wealthy Affiliate. In the support area just add “24/7” support system available for members. I love this write up. Great Review and well done. No Complimentary close: please add your closing remarks and your name and request for comment. Thanks for the opportunity to comment on this review.

  8. Simon says:

    I think the interactive forums are what sets Wealthy Affiliate way above any competition.
    How to turn your website into a dynamic home-based studio can be accomplished here if you are willing to interact.
    To me the comment section at the bottom of posts is the most overlooked part most bloggers fail to accommodate.
    To make an engaging presence leads to high rankings simply because Search Engines adore interaction.
    As you know, Wealthy Affiliate have set their platform up for members to reciprocate with comments on each others posts. A powerful platform,

      Hi Simon, thanks for you comment. Yeah the forums are a great opportunity to solve some of your issues and interact with other WA members. Thanks Sean

      Hi Kurtis, I have tried a number of other make money online programs and what makes Wealthy Affiliate stand out to me is how much support is on offer and I think it’s great you can try before you buy, thanks Sean

  9. Joe Kernan says:

    It’s really cool that they offer a free membership. And without giving them my credit card info? I don’t think I could commit to any kind of monthly expense, until I know if I’m going to like it.
