Introduction to Wealthy affiliate

I am writing this from my own perspective with the interests of our readers in mind. Our readers are predominantly, but not exclusively UK & Commonwealth Veterans, Expats & Retirees and so you may not be familiar with the terminology. Having said that you will find a whole range of people at Wealthy Affiliate (WA), that’s what makes it vibrant and fun. If you have an internet connection you will be able to work from anywhere . But work doesn’t need to stop when you are out of internet coverage. If you signup as a member of this site I will be sending some helpful tips on how you can continue to be productive when you are off line.

Having been an active member of Wealth Affiliate for just over 6 months I feel I am in a good position to tell whether it could be useful to you or not.

The Wealthy Affiliate Community

A vital aspect of Wealthy Affiliate is the community


You will be welcomed as soon as you join. There are over 10000 members but many are working under the radar to develop their businesses so you may not see them immediately. But they are there to help and support you on your journey to a successful business.

If you have a problem or want to add something that others may find useful just post it online. I guarantee that helpful feedback will appear (usually within minutes). You communicate with other members in a number of different ways such as:

  • Comment on a post
  • Post a question
  • Post a blog article
  • Chat
  • Send a personal message


Never be afraid to ask, remember that most of the other members will have been in the same position as yourself at some time. Some members have specific skills in certain areas such as email marketing or WordPress development. Some are experts on building traffic. There are a whole range of skills available to you to build your new business. If you have valuable knowledge in a certain area then you can share it with others. You can learn from the mistakes of others, this is one of the most valuable aspects of the community, it will save time and energy that can be devoted to other things. You can ask for or give opinions articles which will hone your skills and improve your content. All of this makes for a wonderful and lively community.


I was sceptical about WA at first but found it to be a true opportunity to make internet marketing work. WA offers top notch education and continuing support from real people (members of the community) who not only add to your training, but help motivate and keep you motivated. It was like finding a jewel in the sewer of scams.

As a member of UK forces I was privileged to be part of a very special community where members would support and help each other. Now I belong to another close community of Expats on the island where I live. Both groups have a lot in common with WA.

Every question at WA is important as it shines a light on subjects that others need an answer to, so there are no stupid questions. If you ask a question you will definitely receive helpful replies.  Chat is a  less formal environment where you can hang out and get quick answers to questions.

In the early stages you may feel uncomfortable asking questions so you can use the available resources to get an answer to a question that has been asked before.


Being active in the community is addictive, it can take over your day and distract from your progress. Enjoy it but use it wisely especially in the early stages.

Who is Wealthy Affiliate For?

If you are reading this WA is probably for you 


  • Beginners who want to build a successful online business from the ground up irrespective of current skill level, age, experience or location
  • Entrepreneurs currently running an online business who want to take it to the next level


As long as you can contribute time and effort you will be successful in building your New Future Online. Immerse yourself in the community and get the satisfaction of belonging to a like minded group who are going places. Whatever your current level of expertise you will easily slot into the training program and the community. You can be active from day one.

From one of the ambassadors at WA:

“I started from zero experience and a quote that I keep close its not mine though ” I never said it would be easy however it will be worthwhile”

Katie Mac WA Ambassador

You will need access to the internet and an appetite for work. If you have specialist knowledge or skills it helps but is not vital. If you have any particular passion or hobby that’s fine too. For those who are not sure what their business should be there is comprehensive help on how to select a business idea and develop it.

Can I do It?

Building any business is not easy it takes focus, skill, dedication and patience. However all the training and tools you will need to succeed are right here at WA.

One of the members recently stated “if you can butter toast, you can build a business at WA” I am not sure I fully agree but I know what they meant.

This is what I was looking for when I found Wealthy Affiliate:

  • To build an ethical internet business that I could be proud of
  • A steady income
  • Very low (or no)financial risk
  • Good training and advice and support
  • Tools to help me build and monitor and maintain a credible website
  • Guidance on how to earn money legally and ethically
  • Explanation of all those mysterious web terms that I keep reading about but had no understanding. Like SEO, Long tailed key words, bounce rate, etc
Does this sound familiar? Ah Well! Nothing is ever 100%, this was about 96%

What is included?

Here are some of the most significant elements that you will find at WA:

  • Getting started Training (the process is completely SIMPLIFIED!)
  • Classroom training and Courses
  • Video, and Tutorial training
  • Fantastic community support
  • 13+ Full, Interactive Classrooms
  • 24 hour Live & Interactive Help
  • 2 Free, Beautifully Designed Websites (Basic Membership)
  • State of the Art Secure and Fast Hosting
  • Access to Industry Experts & Millionaires
  • A strict spam free environment.
  • Completely FREE to Get Started! (with no catches)


Final Opinion/Verdict

I expect that you can tell from my review that I am really sold on Wealthy Affiliate. It is the only opportunity many of us will have to build a real online business. Of course like anything it is not perfect and may not suit everyone. But if you are interested in building an online business you should try it. It may take a couple of sessions to get used to the layout but its really not that difficult. AND ITS FREE.


For me, W.A. Is a place I'm confident I'm not going to get scammed, a place where being able to master the workings of the internet can be found. To do this was always on my bucket list, and it's the journey that is the satisfaction.

Here are some of the good and the bad for the basic free Membership:

The Good

  • Clear Plan of Action
  • All levels of training – Beginner to Advanced
  • Wonderful Community with 10,000’s of members
  • Direct access to experts and successful entrpreneurs
  • 13 Full, Interactive Classrooms with tasks to complete
  • Live & Interactive Help from owners and expert members
  • Free Easy-to-Build Websites
  • State of the Art Hosting
  • A strict spam free environment
  • No up-sells, ever. (except Premium, of course)
  • $0 Membership. Yes, completely FREE!

The Bad

  • Too much information that can be overwhelming
  • Being a member is sometimes too addictive -

With some guidance these issues can be overcome

  • You may need to upgrade to the Premium Membership to access some of the really advanced training.

This is quite fair and the cost of Premium Membership is not high

  • Not allowed to advertise/sell within WA

I see this as a plus point, it keeps the community concentrating on how to build a business

A word about the Free starter membership

It is possible that you may never need anything but the starter membership. It doesn't “time out”, its not a one month trial offer it is permanent. That includes live chat, over 500 training modules, 3 classrooms, networking, commenting, 2 free websites, access to the keyword tool.

So I would not recommend that you join the premium program until you have spent time on the basic program. If you leave after a few months or a few years you will have learned a lot and it will have you cost nothing.

Then of course you have my own personal commitment. If you find anything in this review that you disagree with or unhappy about I will review your comments and if you opinion is correct I will remove the offending section without delay.

Should you need help or advice I will reply with the answers you seek promptly, (usually within hours).

1. My Final Opinion + Special BONUS!

Posted in Articles, Reviews, Uncategorized and tagged , , .


  1. Hey there it’s Alexey. I see you covered up every aspect of this program. I liked that you are honest with me, and told me the good and the bad part of the free membership. Thanks for that, and in addition, I would like to say that it really sounds like a qualitative, 96% product that worth checking out.

  2. I love the look of your site, it is very clean. I also like your website name. I am still rethinking mine…
    I did see a typo – (Introduction to Wealthy Affiliate
    I am writing this from my own perspective with the interests of our readers in mind. Our readers are predominantly ,) – the comma.
    I like your layout and how you presented the information. It was a little long but informative.

    • Hi Lisa, thanks for spotting the typo and for reading the review. I am glad you liked the clean look, I was especially pleased with the logo. I will make the correction a sap but flying to Singapore early hours tomorrow.


  3. This is super useful – I think its great how you can join 100% for free! Also, thats great how honest you are with the downsides. Sometimes, I find that with reviews, people list the downsides that aren’t really downsides – but things that you’ve mentioned like being a member can be too addictive is a good point. I was wondering maybe if you could put some more reviews from some of the top members of WA? And also some success stories? I would love to see how real people are really succeeding here! Thanks for your great info!

    • Hi Martina – your feedback is really useful to me. When you commented about more reviews from top members did you mean quotes? I could do that but I was waiting for reaction before I included more quotes. I was a bit worried that it could be overkill. I know that UK audiences could be switched off by too much hype. I will definitely look into the “success story” aspect.

  4. Hi Bob

    Very nice review of Wealthy Affiliate… you cover every aspect nicely. I couldn’t agree more with and recommend Wealthy Affiliate enough to people looking to build a real business online, it’s the best place to start!

    How long have you been apart of WA for?

    Thanks for the post bud.

    • Hi Mason, thank you for your comments, they are very e ncouraging.

      I have been a member of Wealthy Affiliate since September 2015 but mainly have been concentrating on my. Other two sites.


  5. This is a really well written and informative review to read in order to make well informed decision to join a platform like Wealthy Affiliate. I honestly think Wealthy Affiliate is one of the few legitimate affliate programs out there that genuinely wants to help ordinary people reach success and build a passive income stream.

    Thank you for the great review


  6. Making money from home on the computer, is made a lot easier with WA. I host earnrecurringrevenuefromhome .com on WA, I can say that the training is priceless on WA to build a sucessfull affiliate business. It is great how you wrote an honest review of this fantastic affiliate training program. Its a shame more people dont know about the opportunities WA brings. Very helpful broken up content in which everyone can understand. Great review. Cheers!

    • Its great to share WA with others who are looking to build an online business. many thanks for your kind remarks, I wish you every success.

  7. When I found Wealthy Affiliate 18 months ago, I was going through a rough patch. My world had been turned upside down a few years prior and I was struggling to right myself.

    Wealthy Affiliate offered me a free starter membership so I joined. The moment I entered the community I felt like I had finally come home. Imagine an online community full of supportive honest people who want to help you succeed!

    • Hi Gary, I am glad that things are better for you now, WA certainly gives a great structure for building your online business and is a wonderful place to meet some wonderful people. Keep learning and reaching out to others for help and encouragement.



  8. Hey there! I found your review about wealthy affiliate very informative and interesting. I’m searching for a way to earn extra money online. I heard good things about wealthy affiliate and I wanted to try it but my problem is I only have limited money to spend. Also I don’t know a lot of things about it but I have plenty of spare time to invest. Do you think that I can handle this kind of job? Thank you for your response.

    • Hi John, there is no need to commit any money to WA. I suggest you click on one of my images that will link you to to where you can the sign up for a free account. There are many members that continue using the free account to get regular and structured training. By using one of my links you will be able to ask myself or any of the other WA members questions on any specific query you may have.

      You will find that the free trading takes you to a high level of understanding about building an Internet business.

      Please do not part with any of your hard earned cash at this time. Just take the free training step by step
