Wealthy Affiliate Dashboard Overview
Wealthy Affiliate Dashboard Overview

Wealthy Affiliate is a training program launched in 2005 by Kyle and Carson, whose passion is helping people like you and me. It teaches people how to build an income online using a website as well as how to make money through internet/affiliate marketing.

In fact, it’s actually kind of like a university, the only difference is it focuses on internet/affiliate marketing area.  So, it’s more like an Affiliate Marketing training program. You’re going to find out whether Wealthy Affiliate worth your money or not through my reviews of Wealthy Affiliate below.

What you’ll get is a total transparency of knowledge about making money online. I believe that, in order to make and earn money, you must know the process of making it.

So, rest assure that every bit of information you’re going to get and learn about the program is super valuable, as you’re going to educate yourself on how to make money the right way without having to jump on any too-good-to-be-true offers out there anymore.

Here’s the video that covers pretty much of Wealthy Affiliate, for those of you that prefers visual.

Ok, let’s get to know more about Wealthy Affiliate and how it works. Here’s the process:

1. Choose a Niche

Kyle, the co-founder, will explain what a niche is.

2. Build a Website Based On The Chosen Niche

It only takes less than 30 seconds to build. They’re going to teach you from A-Z on how to build your own website, so don’t stress yourself just yet 😀

3. Create And Write Quality Content

“I’m NOT a WRITER!!” Relax… Again, don’t be stressed just yet! Think of it as writing and sharing what you’re good at (interest/hobby) with people. I believe each and every one of you out there must have a passion about something – be it reading a book, sports, cooking and so on and so forth. You just have to remember one thing, be honest with your writing.

4. Get Traffic To Your Website

They will teach you how to get FREE traffic to your site. Don’t want to use that kind of traffic? Don’t worry because they will teach you about paid traffic as well such as Pay Per Click (PPC), email marketing (list building) and much more.

5. Reap The Commission

Earn money not just on the monthly basis but yearly basis. Your website and the contents itself will make you money. How? When people visit your site, read your content and click on whatever product you’re promoting and proceed to buy it, you’ll get the commission.

The best thing of all is….

You get all of the above for FREE (Note: Certain features are only available to Premium). You have the opportunity to upgrade to Premium membership any time you want and cancel it also at any time.

However, people from India, Nigeria, Philippines, Pakistan, Vietnam, Bangladesh and Egypt can’t join for free. This is because members from those countries continuously caused cheating and spamming problem towards WA. Thus, action has to be taken. They can still join as a Premium, but they have to pay for Premium membership first.

Another good thing is you’ll find Kyle and Carson every day (well, not really every day as I’m sure they’re quite busy too) in Wealthy Affiliate helping and answering people’s questions as well as giving support and encouragement. Where else can you get that kind of co-founders?

Most of the courses have a walk-through video which makes it a lot easier to understand. If you ever get lost in the middle of learning, all you have to do is ask around the WA community and they will be more than happy to help you out. You’ll get your help 24/7 and in my case I got my question answered almost instantly.

There are 3 ways you can ask a question; through a live chat, create a discussion and type in your question in the white box and find the answer to your question.

My advice is that before you ask a question, make sure you use the white box first because the answer to your question was most likely had been asked and answered by the other members who had the same question as yours. In case you still haven’t found the answer then you can use the other methods.

There are two parts in WA:

1) Affiliate Bootcamp

  • If you want to earn money by just promoting Wealthy Affiliate then go to Affiliate Bootcamp.
  • It has 7 courses and 10 lessons in each course.

2) Certification Courses

  • If you want to build your own income online with your own niche, then go to this Get Started Here Online Entrepreneur Training.
  • It has 5 courses and 10 lessons in each course.

As a FREE member, you can ONLY go through course 1 and 10 lessons on both Affiliate Bootcamp and Training Courses.


  • It’s FREE
  • You’ll get 2 FREE SiteRubix sites (Note: SiteRubix is a sub-domain site). If you upgrade to Premium, you’ll get 25 SiteRubix sites and 25 of your own domain sites.
Premium Membership Commissions

  • The SiteRubix site will get ranked in Google the same way as own domain sites
  • FREE hosting for both Siterubix site and domain site.
  • 24/7 support by the WA communities as well as industry experts
  • Access to variety of classrooms
  • Attend a Live Webinar every Friday

Feeling overwhelmed by the abundance of lessons and information provided. You’ll get used to it in no time.

Forever Premium. Meaning, you can’t go back to the FREE starter membership once you become a Premium.

Fast live chat. Sometimes, too many people chat at the live chat at the same time and sometimes the question being asked is buried with it. People have to ask twice to get their questions answered!

Outdated tutorials. Not all of them but some. New members get confused when they they see some of the features they saw in the video tutorials aren’t the same anymore.

  • Making money online.

When someone tells me they are making six figures – that does not mean I will do the same.

When someone tells me they are not making a cent – that does not mean I will do the same.

Making money doesn’t happen overnight – be it online or offline. It takes dedication, diligence, and patience. So, back to the question, is Wealthy Affiliate worth the money? Yes! It certainly is.

    Pretty awesome I think I got everything I need to know about Wealthy Affiliate to make an informed purchase decision.

    1. Meina

      That’s so true! Wealthy Affiliate and its features are quite awesome. Well, don’t just read the review, give it a go and see for yourself. Take advantage of it since it’s free to join and have the 7 day trial. You’ve literally got nothing to lose. Wish you success in your future endeavors =)

    Hi, interesting read! It looks like a very good program. There is so much information out there when it comes to making money online. About how long does it typically take to see a return on your investment? I’m very interested, but I want to know if something will work if I invest my time and money. Typically you see at least a few drawbacks with all programs. Is there any you can think of? Thanks!

    1. Meina

      There’re testimonies that WA members started seeing results as early as few weeks they started. Others take months to see their results. In my opinion, it varies upon each person. It depends on how much work you’re willing to put on building your site and contents.

      I’ve been a member of WA for almost 3 months and to be honest, this program doesn’t have much drawbacks, at least not that I’m aware of. The only drawback I could think of is that if you’re not a total newbie to internet/affiliate marketing, the free starter membership is pretty useless though. However, the information provided at WA, most of the times even experienced marketers are amazed by it. To think that they know everything related to this marketing area, only to find out the opposite.

      You can try it for free though, and see if it suits your needs. Only upgrade to Premium if you think it worths it. That’s the only safe way I can think of.

    Hi Meina!

    Great Review about Weathy Affiliate! I for myself is a beginner in affiliate marketing and I have never seen a community as helpful as this one. The training is simple to understand and what I love is that there is a video counterpart for every training that’s why I understand it better.
    Honestly, At first I was hesitant to join the program and kept on searching on Is Wealthy Affiliate worth the money but eventually realized that why don’t I give it a chance. And basically its FREE.

    By the way, can everybody join WA? I mean I want to let my sister join but she’s still 14 years old. What do you recommend?

    1. Meina

      Hi John.

      Yes, couldn’t agree more. The community is there whenever I need help which is vital for people like us. It feels good knowing that there’s always people ready to answer our questions whenever we’re stuck on something or curious about anything related to affiliate/internet marketing or simply need an advice on that matter.

      I was like you too 😀 People got nothing to lose and everything to gain since it’s free, so why not take advantage of it. Everybody can join WA, be it beginner or advanced. One can never get enough with knowledge out there.

      Unfortunately, about you sister, she’s too young to get involved with this. This is basically about making money online. Besides, every affiliate marketing company out there have this age policy where you have to be 17-18 years of age before you can be an affiliate. You can let your sister join when she’s at that age and teach her everything she needs to know about this area. I’m sure when the day comes, with your experience and knowledge, you can guide and help your sister to be successful like you are.

      However, if your sister has passion about something, she can starts blogging about that. It doesn’t have to be serious like bringing it to the affiliate level kind of thing though. Like they say, start small then go big. Basically, people can start blogging no matter what age they are. They can blog just about anything they like.

      Hope this helps =)

    You’ve pretty much covered a lot of the important stuff about Wealthy Affiliate. I find you review to be very thorough, pointing out the great aspects of the program. I would like to add that the support from the community is priceless. Nowhere else will you find the enthusiastic support that is generated by the Wealthy Affiliate community.

    This is true for one reason and the reason is because people that join are so excited to help others because they have finally found a program that works.

    I have been a member of WA for 15 months now and plan on sticking around for a long time to come. Wealthy Affiliate is the place that showed me the true road to online success.

    1. Meina

      Hi Wayne.

      Yes, I absolutely agree with you. The support you’ll get from the WA community is just amazing. I feel relief knowing that there will always be someone ready to answer my question whenever I post a question and/or curious about internet/affiliate marketing matters. No more waiting for days to get your questions answered.

      15 months? That’s quite long. I myself have been a member for almost 4 months. One thing I have to admit is, now that I know how affiliate marketing works, I find that helping people with their question related to that area is a bit addicting. Every time I log in to WA, the first thing I’ll do is answer peoples question before I do my work. It feels good to know that you’re able to help them solve their problem.
