When I found Wealthy Affiliate I joined right away.
And by right away, I’m talking a couple of hours. I was looking for something to allow me to earn money at home online. I looked at other websites that had reviews, and there were some that were negative.
But there were more positive reviews that talked about how to earn extra money at home online with the training, the helpful community and the free website building. I signed up for free to check it out.
What Wealthy Affiliate Is
It is affiliate marketing training. You pick a niche. You create a website promoting or reviewing products or services related to your niche. A niche can be anything you’re passionate about or have knowledge about like dog training or unicorns or football or travel. Whatever, there is no perfect niche. There is one member of Wealthy Affiliate that made a website about only football snack helmets and it makes him an income of $500-$1000 a month, every month.
People that visit your website then click links to purchase from the seller – think Amazon, Walmart, Home Depot, shareasale.com etc. Each of these companies will pay you a percentage if whoever you send them makes a purchase.
The process usually goes like this:
- Build a website
- Write a review or article on something that you’re passionate or knowledgeable about.
- Add a link to your website about that product
- Reader clicks the link and makes a purchase
- You profit!
It’s that easy
Most people who buy something on the internet don’t just go straight to Amazon and shell out $300 for a new TV. They research it and make sure it’s right for them. How do they do this?
They go to a few different websites and read articles and reviews – just like what you would be doing – and guess what? Those review sites have affiliate links and are making an income off of it too. So why not you too?
There’s no prior experience required for helping people out, giving recommendations and reviews. You don’t need to be a webmaster or know coding or HTML, really they only thing you need to know is how to use a computer and be interested and passionate about whatever it is you’re going to write about.
It is not easy and it does take time to generate an income. But once you do and you’re working for yourself it will be worth it. There is not a magic wand and poof! your income is $6,000 a month. But the potential is there to earn $6,000 a month, sometimes within a year.
You have to put the work in, no one will do it for you. You can make as much money as you want if you put the effort into it. Some that got their start at Wealthy Affiliate are making over $7,000 a month.
Doesn’t Cost a Thing to Sign Up.
It’s free to sign up – no credit card required – and that allows you 7 days to go through the first lesson and see what you think and get a feel for it. There is a live chat where you can ask questions you will probably get answers within minutes.
After you sign up you get 2 websites for free and that’s when the fun and your new business starts!
BUT…if you sign up for premium now through this special link your first month is discounted 60%, for only $19 the first month. That is a pretty good deal to try it out and see if you like all the benefits available to you.
The process of building your website takes about 30 seconds. Come up with a name, see if the domain is available, then choose your theme and boom! it gets created and you’re all set up and ready to begin your business and your future.
I have never built a website before and it was pretty easy with all of the tools and training they provided. And if I couldn’t find it in the training, I could ask the community for help and I would always get an answer.
Wealthy Affiliate Makes it Easy to be Successful
After you join you have 7 days to decide if you want to learn to make money online and be a premium member, it costs $49 a month, less than $1 a day if you purchase it yearly.
During that first month I’m convinced that you will see it is the best thing for you to do if you want to have your own online business and work for yourself.
Wealthy Affiliate has all the tools you need to succeed.
They provide site domain registration and it makes what is usually a time consuming process pretty simple. They have keyword assistance to help you find the right keywords to use to get higher rankings and better visibility on Google, Bing and Yahoo.
You can use their site content platform that has templates which helps you to create good website content which will bring more traffic to your website. You have access to the live weekly webinars – those have helped me tremendously to get better results.
And probably the biggest benefit of all is the step by step training with videos. This was something else that helped me a lot as well. There were many times where, even though I read the text, I couldn’t find where to go on my website to change the settings, but I watched the video and pointed it right out to me.
As you progress through the 50 lessons of training, start building websites and creating content, you might make mistakes on the way but the community and I will be there to help every step of the way.
I Hope You’re Still Here, So Let’s Look At Some Pros and Cons:
- Premium membership pricing has not increased in over 10 years!
- Around the clock support and access to training
- Website Hosting is excellent with access to over 3,000 WordPress themes

- The financial success will take time and hard work.
The Total Package
I don’t think there is any other online opportunity that allows you to work from home, provides all the training, domain hosting, community of support and potential to earn money at home online.
Try it for the 7 free days, check the training out, ask questions and if you don’t like and you don’t think it’s for you, you can leave and don’t have to come back. But at least you’ll go away with a little bit of affiliate training you didn’t have before.
If you have any questions you can ask me, Derek, in the comments and I will help you every step of the way or someone at Wealthy Affiliate is always ready to help a fellow WA member out.
