My Experience With Wealthy Affiliate

I started making my way through the Wealthy Affiliate training about march 2020, and I would recommend anyone to start their online journey here.
It is free to make an account and get set up with a website
They offered free step by step training videos and the Wealthy Affiliate community was always more than happy to help.
Some of the WA content is outdated which is a little annoying, however, this did not stop my determination to make working online a reality, and I am now making money online,
Wealthy Affiliate is a great place to start if you are looking at working online. I must say that the overall determining factor in being successful online comes down to yourself and the ability to keep going, focus, determination, and the ability to learn and not give up when things get frustrating or confusing.

Wealthy Affiliate has some of the best WordPress hosting you will find online. You can host 25 of your own personal domains for the same price. They have no up-sales which is great by me.

The training is all hands-on and you can start in any niche that you desire. Yes, like anything you have to put in the work. Customer support is great and they answer you inquire within 5 minutes.

You can get your questions answered immediately no matter what time of the day it is. They have live chat that so many people use. People from all over the world will share their knowledge and experiences.

You can even ask the owners of the company to help you out, answer a question, or get advice (not many companies do that).

They provide live training every Friday on a variety of subjects. Their main emphasis is affiliate marketing but offer so much more like local marketing, email marketing, video marketing, and search engine optimization just to name a few.

Wealthy Affiliate even has an affiliate program search tool to help you find the right affiliate program for your online business.

The price is very reasonable when you compare it with other hosting platforms that will charge you an arm n leg for the number of websites you can host with them.

WA even offers a keyword research tool to help you decide if you have a chance of ranking on the search results like Google.

The platform is easy to use and easy to get started especially for a beginner.

It’s all about blogging which is one of the best ways to get your content found on the internet. This type of content also lasts longer and stays in the search results than any other content type.

They also offer social media training to help you build your brand. We even found pay-per-click training in case you’re interested in paid advertising. If you need more in-depth information you can read my Wealthy Affiliate review at my website.

Can you really learn and earn with Wealthy Affiliate? Absolutely! You will find many people from all over the world that have learned how to earn some extra income and there are a lot of folks earning a full-time income.

The community is very helpful and will offer guidance on pretty much any subject that you need guidance with.

I also use the platform for my regular offline business as well. You can design an type of website you like using WordPress which is probably the best platform for managing your content and building websites at an affordable price.

Hope this helps anyone that needs a straight-up answer. This is not a get rich scheme but a solid WordPress hosting company that provides the training you need to market your business online.

One more note: If you’re not willing to put the work in then this program may not be for you. WA is for people that are serious about learning how to start an online business.

Wealthy affiliates staff is awesome..

Wealthy affiliates staff is awesome… I don’t really use their services a whole lot since I already have a business I’m trying to run, but if you are up an affiliate ally, use wealthy affiliate. I would use their services more if I had a premium plan, but I have always had a low budget…

I was very skeptical at first to Wealthy…

I was very skeptical at first to Wealthy Affiliate, but I signed up for a free trial. I like to try a product before I buy and Wealthy Affiliate was the only one who actually offered a free trial for 7 days.

The value I got was jaw-dropping. First of all the easiest to set up website I have tried. Even my grandmother could do this. In a few clicks, my website was up and go.

Next the training: Keywords SEO search tool 30 searches, 10 online entrepreneur lessons, and 10 Affiliate Bootcamp lessons with basic business building online. This was really great and I learned so much.

After some days I decided to start my website with WA. I bought my own domain for $13 with WA hosting and signed up to Premium membership.

The amount of value and training is more than I bargained for and much more than I had with the previous posts that I have tried. No upsells and no pre-installed ads on my website.

To everyone out there who wonders if Wealthy Affiliate is the real thing or a scam, I would say: It is not a scam. You get much more than you pay for. I have tried to sum up the total costs of previous websites and my WA websites.

WA wins! WA has the lowest Total cost. I used to pay from $250 – 500 more on my previously with other budget hosts. WA is not a budget host.

And the most amazing thing about WA is the community. I feel really taken good care of by everyone. WA take good care of their members and is a good role model. Wa urges members to be supportive and helpful towards others.

I have read some of the worst comments here and I can not say this is representative for most WA member’s experiences.
I have access to private messages to Kyle – the founder and I always get a reply. He is always very helpful. I find it quite impressive that the founders interact with their customers. Just think about it: Last year WA had 217.000+ new members. I do not think I would have managed to answer every one if it was me.

I have not met any Premium members who are not content with what WA delivers. And you have access to experts on all levels that will help you if you feel stuck. In my eyes, this is very valuable.

WA support is supreme. I always get help within minutes and they are highly competent and take care of all the technical stuff for you. You do not have to worry about that.

The WA blueprint works – The daily success stories you can read on the WA blog is a strong witness to this. I also document my own progress on my WA blog.
The security on my site is prima. SSL certificate and hosted on the most secure servers. I have not had any problems with spam or malware. On my previous websites, this was a real problem. And my site has full redundancy ( a twin website). So my site has never experienced downtime.
You can monitor your site health and get advice on how to improve it constantly.

To sum it up: I am very content with WA hosting and training and I think WA is unparalleled in delivering an All in One package. And I feel I am being really cared for as a customer.

I joined Wealthy Affiliate in April…

I joined Wealthy Affiliate in April 2020, I don’t know how I reached their site, but I’m SO GLAD that I stumbled across this awesome group of motivators! Hundreds of thousands of people that are like-minded, personally they encouraged me to finish a HUGE ELEPHANT article project I’d been researching and writing for many months, I lost my motivation and inspiration, but since I joined Wealthy Affiliate, I’ve decided to branch into other niches and go 100% on my blogging from home career. If you need to know more, read my honest testimonial here

Reply from Wealthy Affiliate

Thanks for your feedback and I am really glad to hear that you are have found that motivation in your entrepreneurial journey again Greg. Sometimes we can lose that and feel defeated along the way, in particular, if we don’t have an outlet of people to help, mentor, and support us.

This is something that you will find 24 hours per day within WA as the community is truly full of expertise and will be there to help, guide, and motivate you every step of the way.

Wishing you a bright future moving forward!

Great value!

I’ve been a premium member of WA for over a year now. Since joining I’ve built 2 somewhat successful niche websites. These sites are now my main source of income.

What I enjoy the most about the platform is how the training is organized. Can you find this information for free online? Certainly. But I prefer to have access to training that’s detailed and easy to follow.
Also, those Friday LIVE training sessions are priceless in my opinion. Nothing like it anywhere else.

On the other hand, if you want to make a quick buck, this platform is NOT for you. Building a successful online business takes time. You will need to learn how things work and you will actually have to get work done.

Only try Wealthy Affiliate if you are serious about starting an online business.

The Best Affiliate Marketing Training

Definitely the platform for anyone who wants to earn money online. I won’t lie, I did not achieve success in the first year but I did not give up like 99% of people. Now I live from my blog thanks to the Wealthy Affiliate. This incredible platform and training gave me the opportunity to live the life I always wanted. I work from home, have time for my family and friends, etc…

Guys, you need to work and put a lot of effort into creating an online business, no one will do that for you. This platform has everything necessary for you to succeed but YOU need to work, be persistent and never give up although you don’t see any results at the beginning.

I found Wealthy Affiliate in 2016 and unfortunately I gave up because I did not want to learn new things and I wanted FAST money. One year later (2017) I joined WA again with a strong will to succeed and I made it. It was hard but I made it!

Please, if you want to earn money online, give WA a chance for at least 6 months, that’s right! Work hard 6 months without expecting any financial results and you will succeed, I guarantee it! :))

Well said Danijel! The reality is that we teach people how to build a business at Wealthy Affiliate, and we provide you all the tools, services, platforms, and support necessary to accomplish that. What you do with that is up to you on a per-person basis, and the one variable that we will never be able to control is how hard someone works on their business.

It is great to hear that you are now full time online and it sounds like you are in a position to continue growing your business. That is the beauty of running an internet business, once you get the formula down it is just a matter of doing more of what you are already doing to scale your business.

Wishing you continued success!

All in all okay.

I was at WA for about a year. I signed up for premium and then went to yearly sub for discount 29 dollars a month. I thought I would give it a try for a year and then reassess. So, people are nice there, but put people in a group together and get them to help each other and as a rule people are ‘nice’.

For example, Kyle reinstated comments when I got blocked out for criticizing someone’s website (I had to learn that comments should be nice). This is a good platform for starting out. In the end, though, the training was done and all I was really looking for was just a host for multiple sites. After the year I left. I’m still considering going back to them for hosting, but a lot of what I’ve learned has been from self-study. In the end, I found the whole ‘group’ support thing a bit of a distraction, but I understand how it might be helpful.

Hi Richard,

Thanks for your feedback. When/if you come back, I would highly recommend that you take advantage of the weekly live classes. These are hour-long training on NEW topics each and every week, and they also have full Q & A with expert feedback throughout. This is one of the many ways you can advance your knowledge within Wealthy Affiliate.

In terms of hosting and managing your website, you might want to get some more insight into the true quality of the Managed WordPress Hosting. As you are probably aware, hosting speed is becoming more and more important in the SEO world these days. If you have a fast website, you have a much better chance of ranking well in Google.

The hosting offer at Wealthy Affiliate the fastest in the WordPress industry, with 100/100 Pagespeed ratings out of the box. Just something to consider and you can feel confident hosting and running all of your business off of the state of the art hosting and website platform at WA.

We would love to have you back in the future and when/if you do rejoin, make sure you pop by and say hi. We would also be more than happy to help you out if you need anything at all. 🙂

Wealthy Affiliate is Pretty Awesome!

Wealthy Affiliate is Great! If you follow the training, ask for help when you need it and listen to their advice, you can build a successful online business just like they claim.

The Hosting Service may seem higher than other services, but you have to look at the entire list of features that you get from their service. You simply can’t get all the features they offer anywhere for the price of premium membership.

Reply from Wealthy Affiliate

Thanks, Bo, the hosting service was actually explained in detail within a recent post that I made.


It is 400% cheaper than other services in the industry, and faster, more secure, and more progressive. Just something to consider in that respect and like you said, hosting is just one of the MANY elements of the all-inclusive environment at WA.

I appreciate the feedback and I really hope you are doing well! 🙂

Namecheap vs WA

I just checked with Namecheap and they are offering a domain and 1-year of WordPress shared web hosting for less than $50 (60% off).

I see here that WA’s price is $50 per month.

Can you explain to me how is this a better deal in the long run (besides the training and affiliate program)?



Reply from Wealthy Affiliate

Definitely a fair question here JD, and happy to answer. There certainly are budget hosts out there. There is a difference between a budget shared host (like you mentioned) and a specialized hosting platform like the one you are getting access to within Wealthy Affiliate.

The Managed WordPress hosting you have access to here at Wealthy Affiliate is matched by very few hosts in the industry in terms of quality, security, speed, and support. Out of the box (upon building a website), websites built at WA have a 100/100 rating at Google. This is unheard of in the industry, even with the highest-end hosting platforms. The speed of your website is becoming one of the key ranking factors in Google and other search engines, and we have put a lot of focus in our technology behind our hosting network.

It definitely is not a budget host like the other shared hosting companies out there. The hosting you get here at WA is comparable to $250 per MONTH hosting packages.

You can learn more about it here:


You can host up to 25 of your own domains within our Premium hosting.

So just remember, when it comes to hosting you get what you pay for. And remember, our hosting is included with your WA membership which includes a lot more than just “hosting”. It includes 8 additional state of the art website platforms, research tools, a content writing/publishing platform, affiliate program search/management platform, 1,000’s of training modules, live classes, expert coaching and support, and the ability to network with over 2 MILLION fellow entrepreneurs.

I hope this has offered you some clarity here, but please do let me know if you have any further questions.

Wealthy Affiliate is Phenomenal!!

I can’t say enough good things about Wealthy Affiliate. I have been involved in various aspects of web design and internet marketing since 2000, and I have never encountered another company that has all that Wealthy Affiliate has to offer.

The training, the community, the web design assistance, the website hosting…it’s phenomenal!
My initial entry point with Wealthy Affiliate was through their free membership level, but it took me less than a week to realize what an amazing opportunity I had stumbled across and to transfer all of my elsewhere-hosted domains to them.

My only complaint is that I didn’t find them sooner. Oh well, I expect to be with Wealthy Affiliate for the rest of my professional life, and I am going to make up for lost time!
Sincerely, from the bottom of my heart, I love this company and all that they provide. I enthusiastically recommend them to everyone.
