Today I am going to talk to you about Wealthy Affiliate. A platform that has been around for thirteen years now. It helps you to build your own blogging website and provides in depth training into affilate marketing, where you can earn through referring people to websites or get a commision from each product that you review and gets a sale through Amazon for example, also earning with online advertising. On WA it also combines a social media side, where you can get help from other members and connect up with so many interesting people.

Did you know that there are 3.75 billion people online and its growing year on year, that is a massive market to work with. 

For your website you want to pick a niche, this might seem daunting, but it can just be any topic of interest, it is easier in my opinion to do a niche that you have a passion in. Blogging needs to be done weekly or as much as you can on your website, so it needs to be on something that interests you, it can be anything from technology to pets, the choice is yours.

What I have come across on WA, is the saying “content is king”. This is very true, the key is to keep adding content, because over time your website will gain authority and trust with Google. It is the top pages of the search engine that you are wanting to aim for, once your articles get in the top 3 pages, then there will be a lot more website traffic and this is where you are in a stronger position to earning more. It won’t happen overnight, it’s going to take time. The more you add in a short time makes reaching that goal become a reality sooner.

WA memberships

So above are the membership options, if you choose to sign up, I am not pressurising you to sign up to premium. It’s great that you can sign up free, but the premium offers a lot for what you pay.

A detailed look at what is offered at Wealthy Affiliate

Live chat is available permanently 24/7 on premium, as well as a main dashboard where you can publish blog posts. You can ask questions and there is private messaging to other members, even to Kyle and Carson. The Sitecomments platform has recently been updated, where you can recieve comments on any website post of yours you wish and then earn a credit for each comment you provide to a persons post. Once you have given 50 comments out in a 30 day period, you earn 50 cents in cash for every two comments over 50, so thats pretty cool.

Website feedback

Website feedback is so important because people can give their honest opinions on what you need to improve on your website, as well as pointing out any good points. There is a thread where you can follow other members social media profiles to build up your followings, you follow them and they follow back.

Website builder

Site content platform allows you to produce your posts on WA with a spell checker and to add your own images. To build your website you use WordPress.

Keyword Research

You can use Jaaxy Pro which is of no extra cost with premium or the basic version that comes with being a free member, this will just give a snippet. Type in any keyword for an upcoming website article and itJaaxy keyword research tool will come up with statistics for how many searches it gets on the internet per month.

The key is to use what they call as a low hanging fruit word, something that doesn’t have too much competition. Competing against thousands of websites and really top ones in that field for certain keywords would be a challenging task, because of how big they are.

Help Centre

A help centre that can find answers to your question or you can contact Site Support and they will get back quite quickly. They have helped many people out.

Pros and Cons 🙂

  • Extensive training
  • A social community available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
  • Good value for money on Premium
  • Site support ready to assist you
  • Being able to use Jaaxy for keyword research


  • From the start it can be a bit overwhelming for newbies

The Wealthy Affiliate refferal program

At Wealthy Affiliate there is a very rewarding referall program. If you achieve 300 referalls to WA in a calender year, you have a free trip to Las Vegas to meet other members in January of that year and the founders at a private conference. Between the 1st september and 31st December you only have to make 100 referalls to WA. It would be a fantastic and out of this world experience, it really is possible to achieve the required referalls to go to Las Vegas.

Sucess posts

We all like to know if people are making a success, does it all really work. So I wanted to show success stories from WA to prove that this isn’t a scam.

Here are some reviews of Wealthy Affiliate on a thread on the website by members. Including my comment, that is under Ekaye1.


I can say from my opinion that I have never found anything as good as Wealthy Affiliate. Remember for it to work, you have to put the time in and be patient, with a physical store you would have to put a lot more money in. There is no time scale to say when you will first make money, it varies depending on your circumstances. It could be 6 or 12 months, there have been others saying 18 months. Put realistic goals in place, this is no get rich quick scheme. I know there are many sites out there that are not legit.

If you sign up to a free account on WA, I will be your mentor and ready to answer any questions you may have. I want to assist and help you in anyway I can.


Thank you for reading my article, please feel free to leave me a comment below and I will reply back as soon as possible.

  1. Wealthy affiliate is the best platform for affiliate marketing. I came across this platform sometimes last year and I’m proud to tell you that i have really achieved a lot from this platform, I run a site and it was built with the help of this platform the most interesting part is that you earn while you learn. Wealthy affiliate is my number one recommendation for anyone who wants to venture into the online world.

    1. That is great you have achieved a lot from Wealthy Affiliate. It is always good to hear from people who are doing well with the help of this platform. I love how much it has to offer, even if you are a free member.

      Thank you for your comment 


  2. Thanks for the great review of WA.  I’m amazed at how long they’ve been around!
    You’re so right, content is king in the blogging world.
    I’m actually a member myself and have never really been into the whole social media thing.  That is, until I joined WA.  I have to admit I’ve never connected with so many like-minded people before.  It’s so great to be able to ask questions, help others and bounce ideas off one another.
    The tools available are really amazing.  SiteContent, SiteComments and SiteFeedback are all awesome.
    Your pros and cons are pretty good.  One thing to watch out for is getting so engrossed in the social aspect of it that you lose time.  Before you know it it’s dark outside and you’re thinking to yourself “wow, I lost all track of time”.  That’s not necessarily a bad thing as you’ve probably absorbed a lot of information in that time.
    I agree with you, anyone looking to start a business online or improve upon their existing sites, should at least check out the free Starter membership.  You get a lot of bang for the free buck!
    Thanks again,

    1. Hello,

      Yes it is easy to get too engrossed into the social aspect of WA. It is always better to spend as much time as you can working on content for a website. 

      Wealthy AffilIate sure is the place to be. 

      Thank you for your comment

      Best Wishes


  3. Hello Eden! I really enjoyed your mention of the Social aspect of Wealthy Affiliate. Of course the main bread and butter things of Wealthy Affiliate I agree are super. Being able to build up to 25 websites for ONE price!!! Being able to purchase a domain name and have hosting all in one place. Super! 

    But being able to talk to a person 24 hours a day to help you with any questions that you may have. You cannot put a price on that. 

    1. Hello,

      Yes I think the social aspect of Wealthy Affiliate is fantastic to have. It can be a life saver to urgent questions that people need answering and blog posts that from other members are inspirational and also uplift you when you are down. It is a special and important side to have, making everyone feel connected and welcomed. It certaInly makes WA stand out.

      Best Wishes
