Wealthy Affiliate Review – Successful Affiliate Marketing

There are articles everywhere online about creating overnight success with affiliate marketing or eCommerce. Is it really possible? Is Wealthy Affiliate (WA), just one more get-rich-quick scheme? Is it possible to get the in depth training you need to be successful at Affiliate Marketing even if you are not a computer wizard?

Full disclosure I am an active participant on WA, but only after trying out a few others that either weren’t all that helpful or had one upsell after another. I plan to give you an objective and thorough overview of what you can expect from Wealthy Affiliate.

What is Wealthy Affiliate?

Wealthy Affiliate is a complete platform where you can get the training to learn to build websites and generate income online. It’s like signing up for Online Marketing 101. It is not a get-rich-quick scheme and if that is what you are looking for this is probably not the opportunity you want. WA is an Online Training Center with a community of online entrepreneurs where you can learn the ins and outs of blogging (content creation), affiliate marketing, and e-commerce.  Not only will you learn to build websites quickly and easily, you will learn about Search Engine Optimization, using social media to get traffic and that’s just the beginning. It really offers a full educational experience.

Who is WA for?

Anyone who is interested in learning how to use the internet to earn additional income, or even replace their current income. Anyone who wants to learn about blogging and having an online presence just to connect.

Baby Boomers like myself who are tired of trading hours for dollars.

Stay at home Moms, or wanna be stay at home Moms who still need to earn an income.

College students that want to earn the money to pay for their education as they go instead of accumulating tons of student loans.

Anyone who has a product to sell and needs to figure out how to get it to the masses.

Network Marketers that want to learn how to use Social Media to promote their products.

If you have a desire to earn more income and a big enough WHY, this is for you. If you have a big enough WHY, you will have the motivation to stay the course.

If you have always had a desire to be an entrepreneur this is a way to do it for free or with a very small investment.

Can You Really Make Money Online?

There are billions of people online searching for information and products, and that number continues to grow. So yes the opportunity is there. Listed are just a few of the ways that you can earn money with a website.

  • You can promote your own products
  • You can do affiliate marketing and promote other peoples products and earn a percentage of the sale
  • You can promote a current business or service you already have
  • You can create your own online store through affiliate marketing or dropshipping
  • You can sell ad space on your website
  • You can create e-books and programs
  • You can create and sell digital products

On WA you can learn how to give value and build a following, you will learn the life cycle of the consumer, and how you can make money with e-mail marketing and list building.

If you aren’t interested in a straight laptop lifestyle you can use your website to promote your services and reach more potential clients for an existing or new business.

Is WA Legit?

WA certainly encourages the dreamer in all of us but doesn’t fan the flames of the overnight success, in the sense that it is a business opportunity not a get-rich-quick scheme. This is a business and like any real business you have to show up and work it. If you are willing to be in it for the long haul this is a great business and educational program.

I checked out several other programs and settled on WA because it had a great training program, one that really allowed me to learn how to get a website up and running at a pace that was fast enough to keep me excited and motivated, but at a pace that didn’t feel overwhelming because trust me I am not a technical person.

Another program I looked at had a monthly fee 4 times  what WA costs to belong, and then you had to pay $2000 to belong to their elite program if you wanted to get full commission on their affiliate program. They had upgrades that were as much as $20,000 a year and their were no guarantees, I listened for 30 days to that program and felt like I was listening to one long infomercial on how amazing they were. It was very motivational but the take away was little actual value in how to promote anything other than their product. I walked away from that and found WA, within the same time frame I had an actual understanding of how I could make money online, I had 2 websites up and running and was really enjoying the process.

You can join WA for absolutely FREE and test it out for awhile to see if you want to become a paying member. There are more programs and options available to you as a paying member, but you can absolutely gain a lot of information and build 2 free websites while you decide if you want to be a premium member.  I came on board and for me it was a business opportunity that I wanted to commit to and so becoming a premium member was an easy decision.

With the Premium Membership you get access to over 300 hours of expert education, an Online Entrepreneur Certification course (50 lessons), Affiliate Bootcamp Training (70 lessons) and weekly live interactive trainings as well as an active community of skilled online entrepreneurs and more.
