Wealthy Affiliate is a building platform for online business and offers everything needed in one place.  Creating, growing and managing your businesses online is all done here at Wealthy Affiliate. It is also membership a training site where people are immediately directed straight to the lessons as soon as you have registered – this is the ‘Getting Started’ training and it’s FREE.

I have looked at a number of affiliate marketing options, in fact, I spent a few months reviewing several. Wealthy Affiliate has some very appealing options and I have found it hard to find anything to be critical about. The standout for me though is that Wealthy Affiliate lets you ‘try before you buy’ with the offer of $0 cost, but once you are there, much work has been done to simplify the process.


  • The ‘Getting Started Training’ is simplified and broken down into bite-size chunks as lessons
  • Video and tutorial training

  • It’s a marathon rather than a sprint. Wealthy Affiliate is not a get rich quick scheme and getting it to turn over revenue requires focused attention by the person building out the business. In saying that, it is possible to start earning as early as a month in, as I did, or, it could take up to a year or more depending on the time you invest. Read FAQs here:
  • If you are an impatient person, it may not work for you. Although the lessons are very efficient and planned as digestible bite-size pieces, it does require you to carry out tasks at a pace that suits you and as part of the building out of your online business. There may be a tendency to ‘skip’ pieces here and there if you are impatient.


Wealthy Affiliate is for newbies who have little or no knowledge of online marketing or building websites, through to all level entrepreneurs and marketers who already have successful businesses who want to scale their business to new heights.


In a nutshell, the following diagram illustrates the simplicity of what you will be taught in Wealthy Affiliate.

Awesome ay? Otherwise, if you don’t have a passion or a niche, then Wealthy Affiliate has one for you too!

  1. Hi Rina, thanks for this review on Wealthy Affiliate. Looks like you’ve got nothing to lose so I’m planning to at least try one or two lessons as they’re free! I was worried about scams as money can be really hard to recover from an online business if it is not real!! Anyway, thanks for the tips.

    • Hi Raquel and thanks for your comments. That’s right there is nothing to lose, leave your credit card at home. The best thing about this Wealthy Affiliate offer is you can try before you buy so no risk there.

  2. It sounds like there’s A LOT of training here, I can see how they really do put a focus on eduation.

    It’s refreshing to see a program that doesn’t say “Get $quadrillion in the next 2 hours by clicking your mouse here!” kind of thing and I totally get that building an online business takes time but this is something I am really interested in and I am willing to put the work and time in. I”m passionate, not impatient and I think there’s a big difference!

    I love the fact you can get access to all fo this training for free, I’m starting to get my hopes up but I won’t decide until I see it for myself! Thank you for letting me know about this!! Here’s hoping!

    • Hi Simon I appreciate your comments & I don’t think that you will be dissapointed. It’s wise though that you refrain from deciding if it is for you or not until you have tried it. In fact I encourage everyone to try it first at least this way you are not invested financially and therefore are’nt loosing out – and even then, you still would have learned a lot about affiliate marketing in this time.

      regards 🙂

  3. Her Rina,

    I have signed up for an account in wealthy affiliate through you, and I’m happy with what I’ve seen. There are lots of helpful people who are making good money.

    I am wondering, since I see a timer at the top of the page telling me to upgrade at more than 50% discount within 7 days, am I under any obligation to upgrade? Am worried about it.

    • Hi Dave! That’s awesome news that you have decided to to sign up to Wealthy Affiliate! You have all the help you need there.

      There is no obligation whatsoever to upgrade to premium Dave, and that’s the beauty of the first seven days – you get to experience the affiliate training for nothing. If you decide it’s not for you at the end of the 7 days, then just walk away.

      The premium membership is ideal for those who wish to continue on with the comprehensive task based training aswell as wanting to seriously earn revenue from their website. Interaciton with the community including private messaging any member for help including myself and of course Kyle and Carson the co-owners.

      The decision is yours Dave. I wish you great success whatever you decide to do.

      Regrads 🙂

  4. Hi there, excellent writeup on Wealthy Affiliate! They are the absolute best training out there today for affiliate marketing training.

    • Thank you Mike for stopping by, and I appreciate your comments and the encouragement to others to give Wealthy Affiliate a go.

      regards 🙂

  5. Hey Rina,

    Thanks for this excellent review of Wealthy Affiliate. I joined and I am finding the training very helpful so far.

    I started my Website 2 weeks ago and it is already ranked on the fifth page of Google with the training i got at Wealthy Affiliate.

    I expect to move up in ranking going forward and following the lessons and to be earning some residual income from my Website in in the coming months.

    I got some referrals last week so my Wealthy Affiliate membership is basically paying for itself! 🙂

    I am about to take a look at your other article on SEO

    • Hi Crystal! Great to have you stop by and awesome to read the progress you have made in Wealthy Affiliate. I know for me that my first ranking was like making my first sake it was really exciting. You also have great goals and targets to aim for and as long as you continue with the lessons and follow through on the tasks, and with the help of the WA community when you need it, there’s no reason you won’t reach your targets. That’s brilliant that you have referrals also. You’re doing awesome!

      regards 🙂
