Overall Rating: 4.9/5 stars
I have come to the conclusion that the only way to make a solid income online is to work at it. The Wealthy Affiliate is one of the few that will show you just that, which I will explain to you more in this review.
There is also no push button software and there is no secret formula to making thousands of dollars online and that is something I had to learn the hard way.
A couple thousand dollars later and a couple of pay $7 to change your life schemes, I can now say that I make money online and I work completely from home.
Thanks to this program right here!
This review is not to praise or bash Wealthy Affiliate, but to give you the facts and explain to you exactly how I was able to create success with this and how you can do the same.
What is Wealthy Affiliate?
It is nothing more than an online training facility, with a bunch of like minded people, who are there to help each anyone and everyone create a successful online business.
The training is mainly conducted by Kyle (one of the owners) and there are several modules and forums that will assist you along the way.
It is super easy to follow and it is a work at your own pace type of site, so anyone can learn from what is being taught within their platform.
They offer a completely free trial (which was not offered when I first tried them), that gives you access to the site so you can see how everything works before you commit to anything.
No credit card is required either, so definitely take advantage of that.

What You Will Be Doing
Unlike these other “opportunities” that I’ve joined that require you to sell the same product you just bought, you won’t be doing that here.
Rather than trying to at least break even and get someone to signup under you, you will be creating your own business and not trying to make other people rich either.
This is one of the few “jobs” out there that you can say you are really your own boss. Even with MLMs, there is still someone above you that you make money for, so you can’t say you work for just yourself.
With Wealthy Affiliate, you will be creating your own site and promoting these products to gain a commission for your efforts.
The concept of making money online is really simple, but the techniques that are taught here is what makes this program amazing.
- Pick a niche – This can be absolutely anything you are passionate about and yes you can make money with something that you are already interested in.
- Create a website – Don’t let this discourage you because it is not 1999 anymore. No more dealing with crazy computer codes so now you can have a site up and running in no time.
- Get Traffic – This is where you will learn how to get visitors to your site. This is probably the most important and you will be taught by the best in the business, which will lead them to the next step. The exciting part!
- Monetizing – This is always the fun part and what you came to do business for in the first place. You will learn how to add affiliate products, advertisements and other recommendations to your site, which in turn will make you money. Yay!
You will be amazed at how simple, yet very profitable this business model is and also how I managed to do things I never thought possible.
The training is so easy to understand that you will get excited knowing that you can actually do things you never thought possible.
I don’t know if it’s how Kyle explains things or if it’s just that easy, but all I can say is that it is super easy to understand.
What I Like About Wealthy Affiliate
Here are the things that really make this program what it is and why I think is almost impossible to compare, unless you come up with something almost identical to what these guys have to offer.
- Totally free trial, no credit card required
- Easy to follow training videos and tutorials
- Spam free environment (no promoting of other “biz ops”)
- 24/7 support
- Live chat
- Access to online millionaires (hopefully I’m one of them soon!)
- Access to the owners
- Access to thousands of successful online marketers
- Free websites
- No cold calling
- No recruiting
- No face to face selling
- Will make you money online
- No up-sells (I hate these)
I know so many programs claim to be free, just to have a buy now page waiting for you on the other end, but there’s no need to worry here, because you can signup to Wealthy Affiliate for free.
These guys are so confident that they are willing to let you try the system absolutely free no strings attached. You won’t find this anywhere else, even if they claim to be free.

What Makes Wealthy Affiliate so Different?
Alright, I know I mentioned that this program is really unique and there is a reason that they create many successful online marketers (myself included).
Trust me, you can find many great training programs out there but people still can’t make money with them.
Why is that you may ask? Well it’s actually really simple and I think this is also the reason why Wealthy Affiliate creates winners.
It is nothing more than a little help! I have not come across any other program with a very involved community that helps each other with anything and everything.
The best part about it, is that there is no competing with one another, because everyone’s business is built around your specific niche.
Not only is there a very active forum, but there is a live chat feature that you can jump on if you need simple questions answered immediately. You can find one of the owners on there from time to time ready to answer any questions you may have.
If you don’t feel like hanging out your dirty laundry, you can always contact other members as well as the owners through their Private message feature.
Who This Program Can Benefit
Wealthy Affiliate can help anyone looking to make an extra income or replace one for that matter. Here are others that can benefit from this program.
- Work at home moms and dads (that’s me!)
- People with jobs looking to make more money
- Unemployed or looking for a job
- Anyone looking to work from home
- Those that hate their boss (I actually really liked mine)
- Anyone who has failed or is not making it with MLM
- Busy people with not much time but need more money
- Those that can’t work at a physical job
- People looking to sell their products online
- Someone wanting to get off of public assistance
- Those wanting to make a change in their life
As you can see guys, this program is really for anyone and everyone. I don’t care if you’re looking to make an extra income or if you’re looking to replace a job that you don’t even like, this program can help you make money from home or where ever it is that has an internet connection.

What Others Are Saying About WA
Although I can sit here and tell you how other people are doing with WA, I think it’s best that I show you. Not only have I done this, but so have many others that were struggling to make something out of the internet.
The Proof is in the Pudding
I’m not one to do this, but I think that a little proof won’t hurt. Here are a couple of payments that I’ve received, just from using this program.
It is not much, but this is what I was able to build my income to within my first year with Wealthy Affiliate. This is just from one site, so I’ll be updating you with the progress from my other site that I am working on.
The beauty about this business is that it is all about scaling. Once you make that first sale, you just build it from there and soon enough you can see stuff like this. Can you imagine what year 2 will bring?
The Price to Join
Wealthy Affiliate gives you a totally free membership, which is something I didn’t get when I wanted to “try it out”. I paid $49 upfront, and although I didn’t get a free membership, it was well worth the investment.
Sure beats the $40,000 I dumped into a bar that doesn’t make the type of income that my online business makes.
There is a free membership which is better than most paid programs out there but there is also a premium membership which gives you complete access to everything that Wealthy Affiliate has to offer.
1.) Starter Membership – $0 (Get Free Starter Membership Here)
2.)Premium Membership – $49/month
Personally, I think you should at least try the free membership and see if it is something that you can see yourself doing. Hey, it’s free!
There aren’t many programs that give you a completely free trial, but this is one of the few, if not the only one out there.
Thanks for reading my review and hopefully I have given you a better understanding of one of the best opportunities in the world. Please do let me know if I you have any questions and I will get back to you asap. Cheers!
Owner, A Work at Home Jobs
I am confused due to number of course is available in the market.
1: MLSP 2: Lurn 3: Wealthy Affiliate 4: Digital Altitude 5: MOBE 6: Shakkir Hussain training 7: Ray Hidon training.
I like to know how can i choose the best one which give all in one roof might they have some specific subject they are good in to that but how can i get all the needs from one training.
My objective is to start below things
1: I want to Sell Digital Training like MLSP or Wealthy Affiliate
2: Any Crypto Currency Course or Bitcoin Signals
3: Health Product Kangen Water.
Do you suggest if it is possible once i will start learning.
I like to come up with my own brand not with my name and pitcure as i believe in products.
Appreciate your answer as i want to start my business.
You can sell absolutely anything with the training provided within WA even if I don’t agree with the business models with most of the programs you’ve mentioned Mehul. However, you can sell whatever you want on your site and you can learn it all at WA.
which program is best, selling digital Training like WA and MLSP is not good,
Selling kangan water is not good idea.
Please guide me i dont want to waste time
You can choose whatever you want to sell Mehul and any of them will work. You do need to get inside of WA and go over the training as it explains how you will go about selling these products. If you read this review, I give you an explanation of what you will be doing but you can join WA for free and you can learn there as well.
Where do you find a good niche that will sell? I wanted to do watches. Where do you find good niches to sell?
You don’t really focus on something that will sell Heather. The way I find niches is by going for a problem or something other than products that people are interested in. So for something like watches, I would go with a niche like “gps for urban life” or “best watches for nerds” and then go about promoting different watches. Does that make any sense to you?
Hello! Would I be correct in assertaining that one would not be wise to sign up for the free trial until they have chosen their “niche” ? I’m super indecisive and would probably change my mind multiple times on what I cared to focus on… Since the trial is only 7 days it seems wasteful to begin before having a topic in mind ?? Is that correct??
In direct opposition to what I just said – I am also thinking that I could not choose my “niche” before enrolling myself for the free 7 day trial- because only then will I see what this is all about. …. and then I’m back to worrying I will not be able to choose and waste my trial.
See the conundrum?
If you understand everything you need when picking your niche then you can go about things without signing up. However, the free trial is there to help you understand everything about niche selection as well as what you will be doing with your business. I don’t think it will have a negative impact if you did signup for the free membership regardless and I actually think it will help. Also, the 7 days is for things like the live chat and live help but besides that, you will still have access to the free training. Give it a try Em and you can also get some personal help from me if you need it. Get your free membership here and you will see the benefits of what WA has to offer. Hope this helps!
After reading thru some of the comments, I don’t know maybe I didn’t read down far enough, but do you teach or help people joining WA in creating their own website after they find what niche they want to go with? I’m pretty computer literate but have never created a website for myself.
I can help but once you get in you will see how easy it really is to create your very own site.
So I do t get it. I will be taught to make a website? Then I have to go find something to sell on that website? This is only offering me information? Or how does this make me money? Confused!
Hey Linda. I pretty much explained it to Bree, so you can look below and you’ll see how everything works. By creating a free starter account you will also be able to get an in depth explanation as well as a free site that you can use to get started.
Quick question. It looks to be if you sign up with the free starter plan you only receive help for the first seven days. Is that correct?
Yes Michelle. The starter membership pretty much gives you a feel of things before you commit to anything. So yes, it is free to join but that is more of a test drive and not something completely free. If you don’t like it then you don’t have to pay.
I read this review after reading a review you did on Instant Commission Machine where I found your comments to be fair, true and reasonable. Nice way, however, to introduce people to your affiliate product WA, which seems to be more down to earth as a system for succeeding in online marketing. In my case, I already have a blog in a Niche that I like talking about. But I am new to blogging and still setting everything up. Would I still be able to learn from WA without having a website from them?
Thanks for your time
Definitely Pascal and that will actually be a really good idea since your site is aged. You will have access to all the tools, training, and support to take your site to where you want it to be, so that is a great thing you already own your site. You can also visit my profile on there if you need a hand with anything.
thanks for taking the time to reply to my last comment. I’ve just joined WA. Not a premium member yet but I am sure I am going to get there. Just like many have mentioned, I like the honesty of your answers.
As I said in my previous comment, I am new to blogging but I feel like I have so much information I want to share yet I am not even sure anyone can find any of the stuff I am writing on my blog as I don’t think I’ve set up any of the things that I should set up to be ranked by Google such as SEO and other stuff that I don’t know yet. I was wondering how much support I can get with a regular membership on WA. How far can a regular membership get me before I need to sign up for a premium membership? I read a book with the title “Live free or Do it Yourself”. It is recommending to let the expert do an expert job, Should I, in this case, focus on the content and pay someone to set up my blog to be ranked by Google?
Thanks for your time and consideration
P.S. My WA name is PascalN
You can do both if you’d like Pascal but I always recommend you be in the know with your niche. I actually have a writer for my other site but I do half the workload so that I’m still involved as I just love doing this stuff. As far as ranking, you will learn how to do that in WA and YOU will be the expert so there’s no need to hire anyone for that stuff.
So I’m looking to this because I’m about to sign up on myecon but want to test this out. So how do you make money ?
So sorry for the beyond late response Bree! With WA, you will make money by picking something you are interested in and then creating a website around that interest from which you will monetize and get traffic with the lessons taught there. They also provide you with the tools necessary along with a community of online entrepreneurs that you can get help from as well as network with. Just take the free trial and you’ll see exactly how everything works.
Thanks for this post, very informative! I might consider this soon as an option for people that can’t afford my main biz.
Hi John, how can we get paid for this? Is this monthly or weekly? Via PayPal? I’m from Manila. I want to learn the business first. Thank you
WA will not be the one paying you unless you build a site that promotes them. You will get paid through the affiliate programs you sign up with and they all have different payment methods.
Hey John, i want to learn more about this. Any chance you call me?
I don’t usually do any calling but send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we can work something out.
I am a Nigerian. I tried signing up for WA but the system said its not for Nigerians. What will i do. I really need to make money online.
Sorry about that my friend but you can’t take the free trial. If you really want to join, you can actually just go premium if that’s what you wanted to do.
John, Great review of WA and got here researching Super Affiliate Network. I have to say you have already made me money by saving me from joining that network. I could never promote a program like that. Thanks!
Now I have a question on your income statements. I take it those are what you get by people joining WA thru you, am I correct? You then must have other income that you learned from using the WA materials I assume? I have tried in the past to have a business online and this does look like it could be the answer.
Now the million dollar question, how long did it take you or even the average person to make say their first $100 check? I am seriously thinking or rather will join under you with the idea of working with my son to get this going and want a realistic idea of what kind of time needed to make our first $100 to $500 month then week. Between the both of us we can easily put 2 to 4 hours a day to get this going.
Thanks for the genuine reviews, or at least they seem so 🙂 Scott
Yes those are from others joining WA through me and yes, I have other income from another niche site I created using exactly what WA teaches. For me I didn’t see my first $100 until my 6th month but I have seen others make $5k/month by that time and I have seen others that have made $0 by that point as well. It really all depends on the individual and the amount of work they put in. If you and your son work on one site then you can definitely accomplish a lot more than people like myself. I hope this helps man!
I will take advantage of the free offer to start but from what I have seen from just looking at their site and what you have said about what is offered, it is definitely worth a shot. Look forward to talking to you within the WA forum.
Looking forward to it too man. There are so many others that you will meet on there too, so be expecting to do some real networking with real online entrepreneurs that won’t try to sell you anything. You’re going to love it my man!
I was a member of WA two years ago. Nothing was available for a free member. Every time a pop up came to ask you to upgrade to get the needed STUFF. So you have to upgrade for $49 monthly..
You have to read many QUESTIONS and ANSWERS to get some understanding by reading and listening to others opinion. 1/2 hours daily I spent to read those opinions. You can have 10 WEBSITES, but you must pay for every websites to be able to manage or maintain them. I had to pay £390 0r 400 yearly to supposedly get facilities to get money. I paid for two years and what I got was NOPE $. KYLE or CARSON were there to HELP. But every time I was asking something, I was not being clearly explained. So was it free after paying so much? And not getting the required help.
They were suppose to help me where I had got stuck. They should have known by their so many years of experiences where an affiliate is in difficulties and where he has got stuck. Why I was paying £/$ 49:00 every month? Why I had to pay about £/$ 375 or whatever yearly? Was it just for asking questions and be ignored? Either it means that I was not getting help or it means that I am not teachable and I am a foolish to the bones.
Please, Can you answer me the above JOHN ? And can you make me try the FREE STUFF and get money? I had been paying $49:00 monthly and $375 yearly for 2/3 years without being able to get a dime.. PLEASE, HELP.
That’s not exactly how it works Mohunlall but I’m also not saying you can’t make any money with the free membership. Kyle and Carson come in every now and then to help but it is literally impossible to help the thousands of people on that site. I myself help when I can but I am not there every single second of the day. There are hundreds of members on there that provide help 24/7 and I am sure you can get the answers you need from any of them. Have you gone over any of the training?
Hello John, I enjoyed your article, tried signing up but was told my country is not supported at the moment. Is there any other way of getting in or any other online business program you can recommend to me that can accept everyone, regardless of country?
As far as affiliate marketing is concerned, the next best thing would be Affilorama, but they are kind of pricey and don’t offer everything like WA does. What they teach is 100% legit and is exactly like WA though, so give them a try Robert. Now is there anything else you were thinking about doing?
I’m a huge fan of WA… both the program itself and the affiliate program. They’ve both been great to me over the years. Not many opportunities stand the test of time as wa has.
I can’t say that I’ve gone through all the comments, but I’ve gone through a number and didn’t come across my question, so I thought to ask it.
If you go for the monthly premium membership, can you go back to the free one? Also will the website continue as well? From one of the comments, it looks like Wealthy Affiliates are the actual owners of the website, but from the information that you provided looks like that we’d be the owner of our own business (just not the websites), is that correct?
You can’t go back to the free membership T but there really is no reason to once you go premium. That’s like saying, yes, I want to learn how to learn how to do affiliate marketing…okay I was just kidding (lol). The free membership gives you access so that you can see what everything is about before you actually purchase anything as you will need the tools and all the help that is offered in the premium membership, which is worth hundreds of dollars if you were to buy everything separately.
If you don’t want to use WA’s service anymore you can always transfer your site elsewhere. You will be the owner of everything actually as WA just hosts your site. So although they do provide all the tools you need, YOU still own YOUR business, especially the websites.
Thank you for the information! Do we choose our own products as well as find wholesalers? Or are we given products in regards to the topic we choose? Tia!
You choose Theresa…and from thousands of partners out there!
Is this similar to click funnels?
Not at all Mo. Click Funnels is exactly like it says in the name (funnels) and that is what a lot of the high ticket ponzi schemes are using. WA teaches you how to do affiliate marketing as well as equip you with the necessary tools to make it happen. Two completely different programs.
Interesting article. Thanks. However I went thru your review of James’ Web Copy Cat (WCC)marketing site as well and you have clearly called out WA as the best but what confuses me is both these sites sell the same product that we would buy as a free or premium member. For e.g. in WA once anyone clicks on your referral link you would get points or dollars for the same and same is the concept in WCC. So how is WA better? being an ex-premium WA member, I agree that training etc. is much better and you build your own siterubix or own website but operating and revenue model are the same. Isn’t it?
Definitely not the same man. WCC is a recruiting type of site that has landing pages and all that from which you will use to get people to join you through WCC and then you make money. WA teaches you how to create a website on YOUR CHOSEN TOPIC, from which you will make money from whatever products are related to that niche.
For example, I have a site on office products and I make money from Amazon, Wayfair, and other sites that pay me for promoting their products. This site you are on talks about working from home and giving people direction as I know how it is to be new as I have fallen for many scams myself.
WA does not teach you how to recruit but rather how to build a site in whatever it is that you are interested in. I can very much make money by telling you WCC is the best but why would I do that? WA is truly the best site out there and nothing comes close.
I do recommend you get back on WA and really go over the training as it is nothing like WCC. If you want, I can even help you out as I have helped thousands build their own business. Just say what’s up and let me know it’s you. Hope this helps Sunny!

HI, John thanks for all the information its sounds like is a good business to get into. I am a grandmother of 09 and I have tried many things in my life time. I really want something that can work on line due to help with grandkids at home. How long have you been doing this? And can I support myself with this type of business? I want to stay home and work and I am willing to learn all that I can. I am a hard worker and I can achieve anything I put my mind to doing. There are so many programs out there. Do you have a rating on your affiliate program? You stated it took you some time to make $ and are you now comfortable staying home and making $ if so, about how much monthly do you make. I am really interested and need your opinion on this. Thank you
Hey Maria, I totally understand your skepticism as I was once in your shoes. WA is definitely the best thing out there and one that can create an income that a regular j-o-b can’t provide. I have been working from home for 4 years now and my online business is what pays for everything, which amounts to at least $4k of monthly expensive along with us being able to eat out whenever we want, so just do the math. It of course is not going to happen overnight but with some work and determination I’m sure you can and will do the same. Just give the free membership a go and you will see how everything works Maria. I will also be able to assist you further as well as interact with you on there, so you get my personal help as well.

This sounds great, however, I am with a networking company with a lot of great products, I love our products but we are not allowed to sell on amazon. How would this work for me, and is there another way to market my products?
The training here will actually show you how to market ANY product Mink. Rather than using affiliate products, you would just use whatever product you want.
I have the free WA membership. It’s been a while for me that I haven’t signed on to my account. I’m still confused as to how we can make money even through the free membership. Please email me when you are able
Everything is really explained within the first few lessons Chantal. Go to my personal profile (https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/johncruz) and leave me a message on my profile. I can guide you from there if you’d like…
Quick question…Are all the websites named https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/membername?
With PREMIUM, can you add differently named websites?
Thank you. Very Interesting!
WA’s domain names are used by them and we are not allowed to change them. You will be creating your website that is not going to have WA in it at all. So if you were to choose sewing as your niche, you would do something like annssewshop.com. Did that answer your question Ann?
Awesome! Thanks for your quick reply!
Sounds like a great place to learn all the details of marketing online without cost (or very little) or limitations!
Not a problem Ann!
Hi i am caroline am a nigérian based in Nigeria am very much interessted in d online WA business any how do i join? Can someone in Nigeria joint?
Sorry Caroline but they don’t accept people from Nigeria due to the high amount of fraud. There are those that ruin it for everyone and I don’t think it’s fair but I understand their reasons.
Hi John I was reading the reviews on your site I came across your site by mistake so glad I did. I will try out the free trial if I like what I read and its easy to do I will eventually sign up w/a premium membership. Thankful for your site.
Not a problem Maria and I’m sure you’ll love everything the site has to offer especially the helpful community.
I’m very much interested, can you send me a link? Am from Nigeria… Thanks.
Hi! I am super interested in something like this. I am a full time student and I also work for a wellness company. I do enjoy this but I have to make a product point commitment each month and it is more than $49 a month. This is gonna be a tough switch, but I am going to definitely look into this. I would love to be able to support myself and help my mom pay my education! Can I still make some money with the free program for the time being? I am totally fine with it taking months!
Thanks for your help,
You can make money with the free membership Kassie but you will be missing a lot of stuff that will help you in your overall business. Just create your free WA account and give it a try. You can also get your first month of premium for $19 to gain access to everything, so do keep that in mind.
Awesome review John, and thanks for being a great sponsor!
WA has really opened my eyes to affiliate marketing. Finally I am excited about a platform that actually is legit.
Not a problem Mike and all I can say is that I am blown away by how much you have progressed in such a short amount of time. It’s not just great to work with you but it’s always better to meet a great person. With the work you put into your business I’m beyond excited to see where you will be come this time next year. You rock man!
Hi John, That was a very enlightening insight and ellaboration of the pitfalls of online scams, of which now I feel very apprehensive about LDI. I agree with you about the failures and disappointments of MLM schemes that the only ones making $150k a month are the owners at the top of the rank and file. Your online opportunity seems to be down to earth and more realistic and Im going to give it a shot. I hope that it surprises me and that ultimately steers me towards the path of true financial security and fulfillment. I hope and I wish for the best for you and your family. Praise the Lord for our mighty military men and God bless you.
Hi John, I think you should proof read what yourve written above as you have a few typos lol.
Whats do you get if i join?
you have my elaim there if you wish i answer me directly.
also because of your experience i wonder if you could give me your opinion on a business i have found
I am only human Kev and so are you Mr. “elaim” (email). Now what business did you find?
Toyin - Sawyerr
My challenge with online business is staying with one niche and build a business there. Wealthy Affiliate speak about your passion, is it possible to build a business from your area of your passion.
How possible is it to build a business out of EDUCATION as a passion, particularly not in a formal educational institution because I’m not working in one.
However, I want to start like yesterday. You don’t want me to talk about my business experience online, tearful is the least to say.
Can I generate the money to pay for my premium upgrade from the free membership?
Thanks for your help with my questions.
Yes you definitely want to stick with one niche and that is why you want to go with something you are really interested in. Education can go many ways as far as building out a niche site and even just something like “supplies for teachers” can work great. If you just think outside the box of actual “education” then you can come up with many niches in that broad topic alone.
I too have experienced a lot of failure before finally using WA and trust me, it was not the best time of my life. I did learn though, so I look at it as nothing but a learning experience. Now if it wasn’t for WA I really don’t know what I’d be doing right now, so do know that it absolutely works.
You can make money with a free membership but it’s not likely going to happen as you need a lot of the tools and training offered in the premium membership. Now if you knew a ton about online marketing then you can definitely make it happen. However, a simple $49/month investment is really not that big of a deal, especially to run an actual business. I once ran a bar and just the rent alone was crazy, so you need to look at this as a very tiny investment and you will see how valuable such a small amount can really do for you.
I hope this helps Toyin but please do let me know if you need help with anything else and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.
A simple $49/month investment isn’t always so simple, not everyone can afford to possibly throw away $49 ( one time fee or is that per month?) or be out that amount for a long time. It would be nice to see that you can make an income even from the free membership ( even if the income is small) Well i realize that it takes time to make an income and gather people to what your selling, how can you know you will make an income if you cant make one with the free membership? For example some Anti-Virus soft ware lets you try the full version for a limited time so you know the product works, same basic idea, free membership, small income,payed membership larger income….Wouldn’t it be better business to do it that way were everyone would profit? You would have more people able and willing to join and with the being able to make even a small income I could see more people buying the membership..Even if they had to wait to make the $49 from the small amount they would make.
WA teaches you how to run a legitimate online business Sonja and if you are not looking to do that then this is definitely not for you. Making money online requires an investment, so if that is something you can’t do then you simply will not make money online. An antivirus program can’t be compared to anything actually. That’s like saying, Mcdonald’s should let you try their burger before you buy it. Every business, product, and anything that requires spending has a different way it is done and in the online world, you NEED to invest. WA gives enough “free” as they show you exactly what you are going to be doing, so I don’t see anything wrong with that. As a matter of fact, I had to pay $49 just to see what everything was about, so everyone that joins now is pretty lucky. At the end of the day, money is not handed out and it is going to require an investment of time and money. If that can’t be done then you can’t expect much. Hope this helps Sonja!
I do understand what your saying but my question was more how can we tell if the program works at all if you cant make anything from the free membership? Were I am guessing you made money right off because you payed the 49. Well Mcdonald’s doesn’t charge 49.00 for a hamburger there prices are cheep enough to were most do not mind paying 1.00 to try there product. Well I am most willing to Invest I am not willing to throw away money. Most people have tried online places and were scammed or didnt make a dime what your saying is that this program gives you all the tools you need to succeed with the small 49.00 membership but the free membership doesn’t reflect that ? What I would like to know is how am I going to see how well this program works if it doesn’t do anything? Well I do understand you had to pay the 49.00 to start you obviously had the money to gamble with. All I am saying is what good is a free trial if the free trial does nothing? I want to be convinced I am not wasting my money or my time..
Yes, WA gives you ALL the tools you need to run an affiliate marketing business. The free membership gives you 7 training modules along with access to the community from which you can ask questions from directly. You can also see different success stories of others who have succeeded with WA. You are creating an online business Sonja so your success is dependent on your work ethic. I don’t know what else to tell you besides try it for yourself Sonja, so you can create your free starter membership account and see how money is made or you don’t. That’s really the only way to find out.
You have placed and absolute doubt in my mind. For years, I have been searching through the internet how to make money online. I know that IT IS actually possible, however, when you are a newbie to this internet marketing world, you can find/meet a lot of sharks around waiting to take your money, and at the end you end up losing and not gaining anything.
Now, I was about to get started with Digital Altitude. Of course, I understood the fact that you have to sell/promote the same product you purchase. However, it is presented as if they have multiple products that you can sell, and how their systems will get you there. As Mr. Force calls it “The Harvard of online marketing”.
I was willing to give DA a try, but I agree with you, I did not appreciate the fact that a person has to borrow money, apply for loans and other credit cards in order to get started, and unfortunately it is NOT guaranteed that you will make money, and possibility exists that the person will end up in an unwanted debt.
As mentioned, I want to make money online, but I just want a LEGIT program/way to do so. The reason why I have been skeptical about it is because of scams, and many empty promises. I would just like the right guidance and advice. I did not think it would be complicated, but sadly it is.
I am just ready for that extra / replaceable income to come my way, but I have yet to find the right way to do it. I know you will probably encourage me to sign up for WA, but I would like to know the do’s and don’ts before I can make a decision.
What caught my attention the most was that you mentioned that with this system, no recruitment is required, no face to face sells, and that I will be competing for my self, among other positive aspects of the business which you mentioned. But what do you mean, “the only person you will be competing with is yourself”? Can you elaborate a bit more on this?.
Thank you and apologies if my reply was a bit too long, but to me understanding is necessary.
Would like to know what level of income you are at now.. you said you have been with wa 3yrs.. and that it was 3mos before you saw your first dollar.. but then you displayed numbers .. a bunch of 1k’s,2k’s and a 3k.. but was that like per month after you had started earning?
Yes, those are all monthly increments John so just do the math.
I amin South Africa and would like to know if I could be a part of WA.
You can try signing up with the link below Millicent and if it doesn’t work then I’m sorry.
John I dont have anything to sell, will WA help me choose what I want to sell or will I need to have products already and or do i need to establish a business ein through my state before I continue on
You don’t need a single product Jessica and you don’t need an EIN to get started. WA teaches you how to get products from almost every site on the net from which you will promote and get a commission without ever having to ship or anything involved with what a regular business would. Just give the free membership a try Jessica and everything will be explained there.
how can i joined in this home based work? Im really interested to joined here.. thank you
Create your free account here Lizel!
Is this mobile friendly to use?
Yes it is Marie.
Great review, I joined Wealthy Affiliate back in March 2016 and I couldn’t be happier. I would say that for anyone who joins to be patient and be consistent because it can take some time to see some activity going on in your website.
Thankyou for sharing your knowledge with me I am thinking of trying to make a income on line even wit no experience at all
Just remember that none of us had any experience besides falling for some scams. Just like anything else out there, we have to learn and that’s really all there is to it. The knowledge you will gain from WA will provide you with everything you need to know about making money online and really open your eyes to the true potential that the internet really has to offer. You’re going to do just fine Alan!
cornell dupree brown sr.
ok ialmost forgot why im typing this note , first let me say i believe tha twealthy affiliate is just the program ive been looking for,i really enjoyed the commentarry about how the mechanics of the business works, but ive got a unique itch that is really so very frustrating its unreal ,im one of those people who when i touch an electronic dev my girlfriend did not believe me untill after repe(adice it stops working , no im not kidding (case in point ) for some unknown reason the words just rearranged themself on the page , now the reason im telling you this is because im going to need help getting off the ground so the sooner the better huh and id like to add that ill be your hardest working newbie youve got ok let get ted .his party start
Lol, alright man let’s get you started!
Thanks for the review, I took you up. I just came from a program that charged me over $5,000 for basically nothing other than some useless training and the opportunity to basically sell same such product to others. I am not sure if you have run into programs like this yourself John but you should investigate some of these. I am trying to get a refund from that company now but they are giving me the run around (of course).
I joined WA a few days back and I can tell you that for FREE I received much more than I receive for $5,000. I wish I had found your site sooner you would have saved me a lot of money. The Premium membership is a no brainer and I am excited about my future at Wealthy Affiliate. It. Is. Amazing.
Peace out man and see you around.
I actually run into many of those programs and as much as we can’t stand them, they will probably never go away. I try my best to save people from them but the dollar signs take control and we just have to see it for ourselves. So not only do I see them more than I should but I actually have spent thousands on one myself back in 2014. Lesson learned and if it wasn’t for WA, I really don’t know what I’d be doing right now. I’m glad you finally found something that actually works without spending thousands and then recruiting “RyGuy” and don’t forget to say what’s up inside of WA. You can find my profile here ==>> https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/johncruz
Hi John, thank you for your review, very interesting read.
I have some questions. You said that this is not a MLM and you do t need to promote or sell the same system to others. It seems to me that you kind of need. I have read the comments and you refer them to your link which you said you will get recognition on it once they register using your link. Maybe I did not understand but if it works the way I am saying it seems Ronnie that you will get paid for each person that register to this system.
Other question if this is something you work as affiliate for Amazon, EBay they don’t pay much. I believe it will be 3% to 4% for each sale you make.
Let’s say Amazon pays me 4% I will need to sell monthly an average of $50,000.00, having to sell 500 products that cost $100 average in order to make $2,000 in commission. Is the logic I am using correct or I am not understanding this system?
Thanks for your help it is greatly appreciated.
Thanks for your input Ely and NO you do not need to recruit a single person to make money with WA. This site is one of the niches I’m involved in and it is solely to lead people in the right direction. I can make money from absolutely any product as they all have an affiliate program and that is exactly what I do with WA. So I can even tell you a scam is legit, give you my link, and still make money. WA is just what works and is what I recommend.
I have sites on other topics and I also give recommendations on different products and that’s how I make money. Again, no recruiting whatsoever. You get what I’m saying?
Amazon starts you off at like 4% but it increases even after just 7 sales. It goes up to as high as 12%, which is still good. The thing most people don’t understand is one, there is no bigger market than what we have right here (the internet). Two, people shop on Amazon without even thinking so you’re giving your customers products from a well trusted name and they will most likely buy. The last thing about Amazon is the fact that you will get paid for EVERY SINGLE PRODUCT that person buys using your link. So even if they bought some little toy and decided to buy a flatscreen tv, you will get paid for both. With all this put together, you can have one serious cash machine my friend and this is exactly why I always recommend WA. By far the best business model out there.
Make sense Ely?
Amos Kofi Commey
I almost joined Questra world today until after I read your review on them, I decided not to.
I tried joining wealthy affiliate that you’ve highly praised and a proud member. Well, after signing up, I realised I’ve been offered to join the Premium Membership, as there’s no Free Membership available In my country.
How can this be resolved? Because I really want to give it a try.
Sorry about that Amos but the free membership is not allowed in some countries due to the high amount of fraud so your only option would be premium. Most people don’t even get the option to go premium so if you can, take advantage of it. It’s beyond worth it!
I’m part of a network marketing group that promote weight loss products. Can I use this as my niche? or will I need to create other products on my website? Just curious how this can/will tie into what I am currently promoting. Also will we need a different website/domain name for each affiliate link we are promoting?
Lastly, will this program teach us how to simultaneously promote multiple domains at the same time?
You can definitely use that as your niche and no you will not need to create any products whatsoever. Affiliate marketing is really selling other people’s products to make money but you can sell absolutely anything you want on YOUR site. You only need one website and that will be used to promote anything and everything. WA will teach you how to promote whatever it is that you want. I hope this helps Keinesha and don’t forget that you can always create a free starter account, which will explain how everything works.
Sounds like BS to me
How much money did you make at WA last month in August – gross revenue?
What kind of question is that?
You never say what this business is about and if you have to ask friends and family to purchase anything. What are you selling and for how much? What about having to enroll or recruit other people? If that’s the case, it’s not for me.
Also, I am not authorizing you or anyone else to bombard me with emails
I explain exactly what it’s about Helen and you don’t need to do anything with friends and family as this is not some type of recruiting program. It’s a training platform that teaches you how to do something called affiliate marketing, which is nothing more than selling other people’s products (Amazon, Ebay, etc.) to make a commission. Why would I send you any emails if you didn’t authorize me to?
Wow! I came to your website to find out about easy cash code, and then came here. This looks awesome. I am definitely interested and will probably join free soon and then upgrade once I am able to.
I constantly keep running into programs where I need to advertise to actually make money, are you having to do this with WA? I’m with Digital Altitude which I am excited about and then just spent $500 for Easy1Up (not happy about that one). But In a few years I will look back and hopefully say that was “chump change”
Thank you for this information!
Sorry to hear about you joining those programs but do know that I was once in your shoes. WA teaches you how to do free ways to get people to your site as well as paid but up until now I have yet to try paying for advertising. Just give it a try Alexandra and you’ll see what a solid work from home program looks like. At the very least, create a free member account and see what they have to offer.
omg easy1up huge waste of money i joined it and wow 0.00
I can’t even tell you how many people tried to tell me that site was legit and only now do I find someone who actually understands that they are a waste of time. You just made my day Tracey! lol.
John, can you give me a realistic time frame of how long the average yet dedicated person will take to start making money using WA if they have no affiliate experience? Also what you’d recommend to accomplish that along with the type of money you’d suggest they start with in addition to the $49.00 per month?
I made my first $1 by my 3rd month and I was definitely dedicated to it. After that my income continued to grow from there but of course it will be different with every person as we all have different work ethics and different niches. I recommend you follow exactly what the training says to do (don’t skip anything), even if you think it sounds weird. It’s there for a reason. The $49/month is really all you need but I also use their keyword tool (jaaxy), which is completely optional but does help with keyword research. Oh and you will also need a domain name ($13.99) but that’s for a whole year. Hosting is included with your membership, so that’s covered too. With a solid work ethic, I think you can do the same man, so give it your all and you will see results.
Thanks for the dose of honesty and a realistic expectation. I’m sure others were wondering the same thing. I truly understand that to become a millionaire overnight takes years of dedication and hard work.
Not a problem man and thanks for asking. There are definitely others wondering the same thing and there are those that come into WA thinking they are going to make money tomorrow. This will clear things up so no one is confused with anything. Thanks for the comment again, Stew!
What websites can I see of WA to see what others are doing? Is there products that can be sold that you don’t have to buy that can be dropped shipped? I’m a retired Chef and searching what I can do since cooking beats your body up. I look forward to hearing from you.
The beauty with affiliate marketing is that you don’t need to do any of the stuff that comes with dropshipping. When someone buys a product from your site, they are redirected to the actual merchant and then they deal with your customers. You don’t deal with returns, shipping or any of that stuff. You can see some of the success stories from the actual site as some members showcase their sites.
> Love what you do with your reviews and your site. I am a premium member with WA as well. I’m still working through some stuff with my websites and training but try to stay active as possible. ..reading some of the comments in your WA review I noticed that some were having problems signing up accounts. I know that WA uses IP address tracking to avoid people making multiple accounts. So if someone is connected to a public wifi perhaps or a network that has already been used to sign up an account previously, then they will have the mentioned problem. However, once signed up with their own account you can connect to any network and operate with no problems! A trick that I have used to help others is that if they are connected to public wifi, disconnect and use the Internet /data service for the device (i.e. phone, tablet use their provided service) but once they have their account set up they can reconnect to the wifi and operate no problem! Hope this helped!
Thanks for the tip Daniel and I hope things are going well with you and your site!
Hello, awesome review, I tried signing up from Nigeria but it seems its not available here in Nigeria. Could you refer me to legitimate online sites where I can be making money, things are really tough here in my country.
Hi John, thanks a million for ur review on swissgolden, u just saved a life. Thanks for ur WA review as well. Am a Nigerian living in nigeria, i must confess that 49dollars/month is huge based on the fact that I currently struggle so so hard to make a living an also our exchange rate is 363naira to 1dollar, also I don’t know jack about building content on website or even choosing the kind of website that will attract people but I am willing to learn if am tought, am sick of living from hand to mouth every single day. Pls I’ll need all the guide you can give me, thanks a lot and God bless u.
I will definitely help you, so let me know what your username is once you’re in and we can go from there. Signup here and you will get in direct contact with me.
It seems its not available here in Nigeria. Please Refer legitimate available sites. Thanks
If I may ask, is WA available in the Philippines? I just want you to know that your reviews are really helpful and very informative. Thanks a lot!
You can try signing up Jasy and see if it let’s you. Try signing up here >>>https://www.wealthyaffiliate.com/free-account and let me know if it works.
is WA available in Poland?
I’m sure it is man, did you try signing up?
This really nice business but can someone tell me if free trial account is available in kenya?
I don’t think so Hezekiah, but you can try using this link to see if it works >>>> http://www.wealthyaffiliate.com/freemembership
Hello I was trying to join wealthy affiliate but it was saying my country wasn’t supported why now
Some countries aren’t supported Budour so I’m sorry about that. Where are you from?
What is your website john?
I have a lot Mike, lol. However, I don’t just put them on here because people end up copying my site and going about things the wrong way. When you get in you will see how everything is done and you can go about things with an open mind. Just create a free membership and you can see different sites that others have on their profiles.
I was definitely skeptical at first about joining Wealthy Affiliate, but after reading your review and many others online my comfort went up slightly. I have tried several other affiliate programs in the past with no such luck. I found myself joining and then having to buying a whole bunch of other stuff.
The last program I tried had several $1,000 in coaching they wanted from me on top of their membership fees and they wanted me to join Bluehost and pay for website themes. Not exactly what I bargained for.
One question before I join, will websites, hosting, mentoring, etc be included in the Starter and Premium memberships. I am willing to pay money for stuff, but I want to be served straight goods something that I haven’t experienced yet online. I am hoping you will tell me that Wealthy Affiliate is different.
You get everything man and don’t worry about a thing as there are no up-sells that you have seen in the past. I too have been taken for a ride with many other programs, just to spend more and still not make any money. WA is definitely different and you will see that even with just your free membership. Give it a try man and you’ll see for yourself.
So many positive reviews about WA! I think that I maybe saw 1-2 (if that) negative comments about this company as I’ve read pretty much every question asked on here (which was a lot) by people whom are interested and all were answered back with offering some kind of help outside of WA to us newbies and experienced. Very impressive might i say! I too am new to all of this a and have a few quick questions before I do sign up. First, I’ve read that yes money can be made with the free sign up. How likely is it to make $ with the free trial? I understand that it won’t be over night and could take anywhere from a month, to three months, or one yr, 2yr ect. (Understanding might take longer due to limited access with 2 websites and training) depending on of course how much interest and demand people have for my niche as well as traffic to my websites. I’ll be relying on first sale or two to be able to pay for the premium to have full access. Two, am i able to still be successful with this by using my LG Fortune android phone? I have a laptop but i travel with my spouse all over the states due to his job being a truck driver so I’m only able to use my laptop on off time when parked up only if there’s an available open WiFi hotspot in the area? Looking forward to hearing back from you!? And again John, THANK YOU!!
There are just so many perks of being a premium member Tonya and although you can make money with your free membership, you will only be holding yourself back from a lot of things that the premium membership offers.
Using a phone is going to be really hard and you defintely want to have a laptop to create content for your site. You can always publish them when you have an internet connection, but immediate wifi is not necessary.
Just get signed up here though and I will give you a hand with whatever it is that you need help with and then we can go from there.
Forgive me for the super late response Tonya!
To Whom It May Concern:
In 2016, I went all in with MOBE and lost $35K trying to get this Affiliate Marketing business up and running. Nothing they recommended worked. Maxed out my credit, and here it is, July 2017 and I’m still paying on it. I am genuinely concerned if your legitimate or not.
You’re concerned if I’m legit Dave? Let’s just say I have went all in with a very similar product to MOBE and I lost a lot there too. I joined Wealthy Affiliate after and although I didn’t make money right away, I was actually able to make back everything I lost and a lot more. I also work from home full-time thanks to everything that I learned from WA. I am not a product owner, but I do know about everything out there and WA is definitely a business on its own. Whether you believe me or not, you should at least give their free membership a try and you will see exactly how they work. Just use MOBE as a HUGE lesson learned man, but definitely try to get your money back even if they have a no refund policy. There are many people out there in your shoes, so don’t give up and try to get that refund. Go through your credit card company if you have to.
I keep trying to sign up but it tells me I’m already an affiliate but I’ve never heard of this before. When I tried to see if it would recover my login info, my email is not recognized. This is frustrating trying to sign up to something that says I’m already an affiliate but I’ve never signed up before.
Sorry about that Marily as I really don’t know what the problem is and this has happened before.
Try signing up with this link >>>> http://www.wealthyaffiliate.com/freemembership and let me know if that one works.
Hi I just came across your review and am very tempted. I am mum of nearly two year old working part time and struggling. I have been trying to make money online for last two years and not got anywhere.
I have no idea about affiliate marketing and how to choose a product or build a web site.
Is it possible to start making money from the free membership for complete newbie or will there be necessity to upgrade ?
I really want spent time with my son and provide the best possible for him.
It is possible but not very likely as there is more to it than just a basic knowledge of affiliate marketing. I do know that you will learn EVERYTHING you need to know about affiliate marketing though and you will make money as long as you put in the work.
Just like you, I wanted to spend more time with my kids, tried many different programs, and couldn’t get one that works. After taking action on WA, I finally started to make money. What made me believe in the model is that the income will always grow as long as you work at it and that is exactly what will happen. You won’t regret it Bibiana, so at the very least give it a try.
See what the free membership has to offer and if you don’t like it you don’t have to go premium. I can help you along the way though, so you won’t get lost. Get signed up here for free and let’s get you going.
Hi John! Great review! Just have a couple of questions for you. I too did a lot of “get rich quick schemes” that I wasted a lot of time and money on. I’m pretty sure I tried Wealthy Affiliate back in 2012 when I was a college freshman trying to get ahead of the game and quit because of the overload of information (college students have an attention span of an ant, or at least I did lol). But now I am a mother of one and at a job that I love but I really want to work for myself. I already researched for months, picked a niche, and invested in a website (www.shelikesitnatural.com) but I haven’t even launched it yet because I got stuck on themes and crap. Do you think I should just say forget that website and start here again with WA? Also, can I do this on my work computer or are there things I need to download that would require my personal laptop (which is not working at the moment). Any advice is appreciated! Thank you! Sorry for the long post 🙂
Don’t worry Tyanna, I actually took the same steps you did. Joined WA and took no action simply because I was busy with life. In the meantime, I was too busy trying to get rich quick until finally I figured out that I needed to work at it from which I finally gave WA a go. After building out my site for a couple of months, I finally made my first $1. From that point on, I continued to build and grow, which of course made me more money. Within a year’s time, I was finally working for myself (yay!) and I have never looked back since then. WA is the real deal!
I recommend you take that site and get it hosted with WA and continue to build out that site, just use the training at WA to monetize it. You can definitely do this on any computer and there is nothing that needs to be downloaded. You can do this from anywhere pretty much, so definitely get in and start building out your business slowly. Make sure you contact me when you get in so I can give you a hand if you need it. You can find my profile here https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/johncruz. Good luck and I hope this helps!
If I decide to sign on with WA, how do I ensure that you get credit? Do you have an affiliate page that I should sign up through?
What we call them in the world of affiliate marketing is “affiliate links”. So just like you would have your personal links with Amazon, Ebay and whatever affiliate company you get involved with, WA has theirs as well. So if you use any of the links I present, it ultimately give me credit as well as allow me to track you on WA. So if you join here >>>>> click here to join WA, I will get credit for it. Make sense Janice?
I thought t’was free, but why asked me a $49 to get started? im from Philippines. thankyou
Hey Maks, sorry about that, but they usually don’t allow anyone from your country to join due to the high amount of fraud. They don’t even offer the premium membership, so that’s actually a good thing as there were others from your country who weren’t even able to signup for the premium membership even if they wanted to. If you want to join, you would have to become a premium member. That’s the only way. Sorry about that, but that’s your only option.
Hello John, am from Kenya. Is the program supported in Kenya?
You can try signing up for the free membership Keith and if it doesn’t work then Kenya isn’t supported.

Hi I am trying to create an online account but it says that I already have one created… I’ve never heard of this company so no j don’t have an account already, what do I do?
Something might be wrong within WA Amanda, but I’ll try and find you some answers. Try to create a free WA account here and let me know if it works.
Hi, I am getting the same query stating I already have an account however have never used the site. And tried the link u posted yet it still states the same.
What country are you from Aqee?
Is free membership available in Japan?. Also, can I work in English still being in Japan?. Thank you.
It should be Amilia and you can also work in English no matter where you’re from as well. Signup here and let me know if it works!
Hello. Thank you for recommending this program.
Where is YOUR website? Please give me the link to the site you created under this program.
If you’ve already done so, sorry I might have missed it among all of the comments.
Here you go “R JONES”! https://homeofficebuilds.com/. This is one of the sites I’m working on at the moment, but it’s already getting visitors and making sales even if I’m building it out really slowly.
Nice you honest reviews of WA, I like it very much. thanks for sharing with us.
Hong have you been with WA? Do I need to be referred by anyone inside WA? If i don’t have a business, will it still work for me. I am a full time mom.
Hi Joan. I have been with WA for 3 years now and no you don’t need to be referred by anyone to join. You don’t need a business or any products to get started and yes this will work for you. You can signup for free here and see exactly what is offered before you commit to anything, so don’t forget about that. I too am a full-time dad and that is exactly why I turned to the internet to find work. Thanks to WA, I now work from home and spend all my time with my kids. You’re going to love it inside of WA, so get signed up and get started today.
How do you earn money here? There is no explanation here? Where will you find it?
What isn’t explained here Anura? You can always go to the official WA site here and create your free account. just with the first few lessons you will learn how everything is done, so at the very least, take advantage of that.
I am from the Philippines and I’m a stay at home mom, jobless and I have a 5month old baby, need money to buy his needs. I am interested in WA and I tried to sign up, but after signing up, it says that WA is not available in our country… geeee… I don’t have that kind of amount of money since I am jobless… so what shall I do now? I want to cancel my registration in WA…any suggestions on how to do it? Thanks.
PS. I hope you can help me find a business online job. Thank you John. God Bless!
You want to cancel your registration in WA but you couldn’t signup? I’m confused Anna…
I tried signing up in WA too however the free starter account is not available in our country, I’m from the Philippines by the way. Can you suggest any other legit online job for me? I’m a graduating student and looking for a job that I can do while studying. Hope you can help me.
Thank you! God speed.
You can checkout Affilorama, which actually costs more but they do accept people from your country.
Hi john, I understand the bad experience you had from a few Nigerians who tried to compromise the process, but should you blacklist a whole nation because of a few unscrupulous minute percentage. I think your management or team should have a re-think over this decision. What I think you should have done is to build a ”strong control that is full prove”. I am a Nigerian and a proud one for that matter and I can hold my own any where in the world as far as integrity is concerned, so are the greater percentage of Nigerians and now I am interested in WA but you have shut me out of this business opportunity by an unfair stereotype.
Thank you John.
Hi! I just signed up for the free trial. What do I do now??? LOL since this is not MLM you personally don’t help through this right? Thanks for the recommendation! I’m full time in network marketing but want another source of income that is not considered network marketing so this seems like it could be the answer.
I will still help you JC, which is another great thing about this site. You not only are getting some awesome training, but you get all the help and support you need if you ever get stuck with anything. You’re going to like what you see, so just go through the first part of the training and everything will be explained there.
Can you do a review on company called amazing living? It’s a new company that basically uses a credit card they provide you from which you add $$ on the card then you purchase products that they put on or add to the amazing living website then you make $$ by purchasing products and 9 percent going down 7 levels on everyone else’s purchase. It’s based in Texas and I would appreciate your feedback ESP if it’s a scam.
Sure Cindy, I’ll be getting a review out as soon as I can and I’ll let you know when it gets published. Do you have the URL to the site though?
I just joined this program and I am extremely exited about becoming a premium member! The way it is build to guide you how to build an online business is amazing! I learned so much in just a few weeks and the amount of money you pay for membership is really symbolic. The members are actually helping each other and supporting you in any challenge you have. Training are very clear and simple to understand. There is always a respond from the guys who running the show, you can see and feel support by being a member of WA. Thank you for letting more people become free and independent starting with the right foot.
I tried creating a free account but was told my country (Nigeria) is not supported. Is there any way out or I just have to wait?
Yeah sorry about that Kwopnan, but due to the high amount of fraud from your country, they are not even accepting premium members anymore as people are trying to cheat the system.
I just wanted to let you know that I am going to sign today and hopefully get some guidance with this whole online thing. I love how you break everything down for us readers. That’s very much appreciated. Thank you.
P.s. I hope I can still communicate with you if I have questions since I will first be trying the free trial.
Thanks for that Marie and we will very much be in contact once you get in and I will definitely help you along the way!
I really enjoyed your article. One comment and one question. I am very interested in joining. However the possibility of paying the monthly fee & not making any money does not appeal to me. Although not this one I paid a monthly fee while trying to learn the business and never made a penny. I don’t have the money to just give. I know it’s on me so it’s a bit of a dilemma. Will you be able to teach and guide me through the process? Thanks again for a terrific article!!
It’s completely normal to be skeptical about anything especially in the online world. The thing about Wealthy Affiliate is that it’s a real business and it’s something that will grow, so making money right off the bat is likely not going to happen.
Do know that I was once in your shoes and have put thousands of dollars into many programs and I made a whopping $0. After blowing so much money spending the $49/month here was really nothing for me and the weird part about all this is the fact that I actually started to make money.
It took me about 3 months to make my first $1 but that’s really all I needed to show me that this thing works. Fast forward to now, and I am working from home full-time enjoying all my time with my kids.
It’s really hard to trust anyone online but believe me, I have tried them all and nothing compares to this site. I know money can be tight for a lot of people, but as a business person, $49 a month is really nothing when you really think about it.
Again, I know it is really hard to trust anyone online, but I have seen it all and I know exactly how you feel. Do know that this program right here is the real deal and something you at the very least should try.
I mean, you get a free membership that allows you to see what everything is about and they don’t require you to put in any credit card information. If you don’t like what you see, you don’t pay and you just stop logging into the site. It’s really that simple.
So one, you’re joining a legitimate site, and two, you get me to guide you. It’s really hard to make money online without help and support and that’s something you get here with your membership. Now tell me that’s not worth $49, lol.
I hope this helps Becky and if you do decide to join, sign up here for free and I will be able to see you once you get in. You won’t regret it!
I am interested but I have been surprised with other programs at how much additional investment is necessary to really make a go of it.
Beyond the membership fees what investment is necessary to make it work?
Yeah I think we’ve all been surprised before and it’s really not cool. As a matter of fact, I actually did a post on all the tools I use to run my online business as well as my expenses, so you can see EXACTLY how much I’ve spent and continue to spend to keep my business going. Click here to see what you will spend Dix and then you can decide.
Can membership be upgraded at a later date?
Yes it can Jessica. You can sign up here for free and see what you get before you commit to anything.
Thank you very much for ur sharing… I have questions that I wish to ask..but whenever I keyed in my question it said that your comment privileges have expired… I hve missed my trial period I joined n hve forgot abt it.. but I wanna go premium after I have create my website first.. Is there a way to ask questions b4 I go premium?
You can leave it on your profile and I can get to you. What is your username?
Thank you so much for ur reply… My username is Rainbow
Have a Great day
Same to you!
Okay so there are actually many “Rainbows” on WA, so can you contact me on there so I can know it’s you. Here’s the link to my page.
Good day John,
Oddly enough it seems to me I heard of Wealthy Affiliates over ten years ago and most likely I even signed up or requested information.
My question is simply, how long will it take to make money using WA?
I am willing to work extremely hard.
Things have taken place in our lives that have all but drained our finances and we are squeaking by pay day to pay day at a time in our lives we should be enjoying life.
Our daughter blessed us with a beautiful grandchild and within one year of that she took off – you can figure the rest. Not being prepared to have a child we needed to support at our ages you can imagine what all has come from that.
If I can find a program or anything where I could make serious money I swear I would work it hard!!
Is it possible to start making money with the free version then upgrade once you have income from that?
Is it possible to make a few hundred a month right from the start?
Thank you for your time.
First off, sorry to hear about your situation and I hope things are a lot better now.
The amount of time to make money really depends on the individual and their niche. For me, I made my first sale by month 3 and made a full-time income within my first year. Mind you I worked my butt off and focused on building my business.
You will not make crazy amounts of money overnight, but this is one of the few that will make you serious money online. It is very much possible to make money with the free version, but that goes hand in hand with what the premium membership offers as you are going to need help, support, and all the tools.
You will not make a few hundred right from the start as this is a business that needs to grow. The first month is really all about building your foundation so you won’t be doing any selling just yet.
Whether you want to make money right away or not, you’ll be kicking yourself on the butt 6 months down the line knowing you could’ve started something that could make you money over and over again with such a small investment.
Definitely get back into your account and at the very least get trained and apply what is taught. Get rid of the make money fast mentality and build something that will payoff eventually.
There is no get rich quick type program so push that idea to the side and build your income from the ground up. For those of you who are still trying to find that easy way out, I hate to break it to ya, but there is none.
Hope this helps Alma!
Thank you so much for your reply. I appreciate you taking the time to answer me.
Sorry but one more question….Whenever I do sign up if I have questions along the way are you available to answer them or do you have to be a premium member for that help?
I am by no means looking for or expecting a get rich quick scheme, at my age, believe me, I know those don’t exist.
It’s just that I was curious if I would make money right off if I work my butt off. Thank you the most for not trying to tell me I would make thousands in a matter of days as so many bull programs do.
Life has moved on as sad as it may be to say. The blessing is our grand baby is safe and loved, I watch her while her daddy works and she now lives with her daddy. For now, my daughter is just…….. However, we have many blessings to be thankful for and a hope that one day she may return to her family.
As for me, I want to help dig us out of debt.
Once again, I can’t thank you enough for your time.
I pray that she does return too Alma and I’m glad your granddaughter has her grandparents and even her father there for her.
Wealthy Affiliate is something that definitely needs time to build, but the end result is amazing Alma. What you can make in just 1 year with the training here you will never make with 20 years in a regular job.
You do get help on your profile as a free member, but you lose access to the live chat after 7 days. If you give me your username I can find you and help you along the way or you can find me at my personal profile in the link below. Whichever works best for you.
I will be more than happy to help you make some money online as long as you understand it’s not going to happen in a month and if you’re willing to follow what I have to say.
Time is going to fly so let’s build out your business now so you can enjoy it all later. Don’t start now and you’ll look back a year from now kicking yourself on the butt because you didn’t do anything.
Let me give you a hand so just go to my profile and let me know it’s you.
A year ago, two weighs Registered free membership “Wealthy Affiliates” and started following the first instruction of the site, but it was very difficult, if not impossible, because they do not know English and translate it with google chrom.Ukazaniyata site are excellent can but would speak and explains in English and no translation option with subtitles or another way to translate my native language, Bulgarian, so I gave up because of this prichina.Mozhesh Does John tell me how I can solve this problem.Predvaritelno thank you!
You’re welcome Emil!
I ran into another traffic generator company it’s called http://www.trafficauthority.net
if you want to check out for me and give me your honest opinion. I would appreciate it. Thanks
Hey Ammar I actually did a review on that so you can check it out here. Hope that helps!
Hi..your site is great and the way you explain all informations is awesome..my main problem is English,it seems quiet difficult for me to produce good articles like you and other people because my english is not very good..do you think i can succeed or can i create websites in my native language in order to succeed ,thanks ..waiting your answer..john!!!
Your English is actually not too bad, but if you use a tool like Grammarly it will show you how to word things the right way and all that good stuff. There’s also plugins and apps that allow you to convert your content from your native language to English or vise versa. So yes, you can succeed Franky!
Hello… Just curious I haven’t really signed up for this but just curious does this affiliate program expect me to sell tangible items from my home where I have to pack and ship or is it rather online items that are digital or drop shipped? Just curious as I didn’t want to have to have a large inventory etc.
It will teach you to sell tangible, digital, or any product that can be sold online, but not from your home. No packing, no shipping, and no storing anything. Every transaction is done through the buyer and the affiliate program you are signed up with. So when you sell something from Amazon, everything happens on their end and you just get a commission for what was sold.
Sorry man, but you can only get the premium membership.
Sorry to bother you about the membership problem, John. The payment went through the second time around.
As long as everything is going fine Lisa. Do let me know if you have anymore problems moving forward.
I signed up with Wealthy Affiliates thru your site and yesterday paid the first month’s fee of $19 for the first month via paypal on my mobile. It’s not showing up that I’m a premium member, so I no longer have access to the site’s administrators.
Could you please help me with this.
I’m interested, please give me more information. thanks
You will get all the information just from the first lesson alone Allan, so just create an account. Everything will be explained from there.
Click here to create your free starter account!
Am tracey from kenya.am not able to get the free trial
explain to me how it works please am interested
I guess your country is not allowed to get the free trial Tracey. Sorry about that. The only way for you to become a member is to purchase the premium membership.
Am kingsley from Nigeria. I have gone through almost all the questions here and your replies. You are good at this. I noticed we in Nigeria can’t register both for the free and the premium. Can you educate/teach us steps to register for the premium?
I know that I am computer literate, can I get to learn who to create websites differently, or do I learn it in the course of my training with WA ?
Thanks Man for this help.
It’s not giving you the option to go premium?
Hello , i’m from Egypt , i was looking for something like that since like 5 years , i was in high School , i was looking for some income online , but i always end up buying scams and getting membership in scam websites , but after i read this review i will for sure join this program .
But i need some answers please for some few questions if you don’t mind :
1:- If i started taking this program today , when would i start earning money ? i mean like i have to wait for like 5 months before mastering all skills and what i learned into action ?
2:- what methods of payments does the website has ? , i mean will i be able to get what i earn through Debit cards or PayPal ? because i can’t receive Checks from outside the country through Mail because mail is not supported in my country .
Thank you for reading this man , and waiting for your reply 🙂
The time it takes to make money is dependent on a bunch of things. From the niche you choose, to the individual, it will all depend on most especially your work ethic. It took me about 3 months to make my first sale, but I was actually expecting longer.
The thing about the way this whole thing works is that it is not about when you make your first $1, but rather about building a business that will make you money over and over and over again, with the increase in income due to your efforts.
Now WA does use Paypal to purchase your membership, but getting paid would be done through the different programs you are affiliated with and they will pay you in different ways depending on what they use. In most cases, Paypal is the preferred choice of payment.
Hope this helps Mahamad!
Am Bernard am from Nigeria, I tried signing to wealth affiliate but it says it doesn’t support my country. Can you help ?
Sorry about that man, but you only have the option of going premium. So if you want to join, you would need to upgrade.
I love music, but nothing really comes to mind when I think of monetizing that. Any ideas of where I can go with music?
There is actually a lot of ways to monetize that niche. You can get into headphones, instruments, sound docks, and even rap which is a very profitable niche. Music is still a bit broad, and you can see how I just narrowed it down to an even more targeted niche. Even at that, you can still go further! It may seem like you can’t find a niche, but you will learn more about that once you get in to WA.
Thank you for your review and I am interested. could you contact me at email@example.com ,, I have a few questions and would like to sign up through you. Thanks in advance!
Meegan L. Peebles
Let’s say my niche was candy of some sort. I know it’s a Niche for that so is this kinda like learning from the Gurus who have successful Amazon Stores? I have an idea that I am preparing to launch as we speak it is apart ofthe larger enterprise to find my social enterprise. Would WA have Niche experience in candy?
WA will teach you how to make money with any niche. So if you feel that candy is something you are passionate about, then that’s really up to you. Is that something you can see yourself talking about for days?
Hello john.. Im looking to work from home but im a newbie to all of this…is this program for people already have experience and the entrepreneur background or already have a business and looking to launch their business online? Im very new to this …i signed up with a program called digital altitude. ..great teach but the membership packages is ridiculously high and I am not able to afford it so can you help me understand what I’m getting myself into with Wealthy Affiliates will this benefit me in the long run being that I’m a newbie because im ready lol im so tired of being broke and not being able to do things with my kids cuz of funds being low right now my husband is the bread winner but its been really hard on us and we’re sick of having to depend on government assistance to get by ….im so ready and able will this program be a fit for me and my husband?
This program is a fit for anyone Linda. Just like you, I knew nothing about making money online and I too fell for another overpriced scam that is very similar to Digital Altitude. I then joined the Wealthy Affiliate and gave it a chance. With the help and support, anyone can make money online if they just apply what is taught here. Don’t forget that you can even test drive the program before you commit to anything, so you can at least get in and see what they have to offer. Click here to create a free starter account and you’ll see why I highly recommend them!
thank you so much for the reply
Not a problem Linda!
Are you doing this along with United games?
This is the program that showed me how to make money online Royce and United Games is just something I joined because I want to see what they are all about. This site right here is for anyone looking to make money online without doing anything related to network marketing.
I’m trying to position myself to get out of public education soon. Is this a solid move toward that?
It sure is Royce and you’ll see and learn more about it when you get on the site. I have managed to get out of the military and quit my job thanks to this site, which is why I am forever grateful for what this has done for me and my family. You can and will do the same as long as you apply what you are taught and you don’t give up.
Just want to say thank you for being up front and honest about your business and experiences in the past with other businesses. I recently lost my job was informed that my position was no longer needed yet my supervisor took over my position. I really need to make income fast and would love to try this (after almost getting sucked intoDA), glad I saw this 1st.
*I am computer literate, about how do you think it would take generate decent income if I dedicated at least 3-4 hours a day in this program? Decent income meaning
Like 1-2k a month
* Can you have more than niche if the one you chose isn’t getting it for you?
Sorry to hear about your job Veronica. The way you can look at things is that it might have been a blessing in disguise. For me, I knew I had to get out of my old job or I knew I would never accomplish anything in my life and I’d be stuck at that job forever. Unlike you, I had to quit my job to pursue my dream of making money online, rather than having that “blessing”. Without Wealthy Affiliate, I really don’t know where I’d be right now.
Now to be honest with you and about this program, I will tell you that it is not really a matter of how many hours you put in for a given day that will make you succeed online, but rather your consistency and efforts. You see, building an online business is something that you are building for the long haul and something that will not give you immediate results. If you can understand that much about this whole thing then you will make money online.
Wealthy Affiliate is very unique and anyone can make money with the training and support offered there, but it’s really up to the individual. The best part about all this is that you have me! I didn’t have someone like “me” when I first started, so consider yourself lucky.
They also offer a free membership, which is almost impossible to find on the net, so you can get in and see what it is all about before you commit to anything. So if you’re willing to put in the work and you understand what you are about to get into, I am willing to offer you my help. Create a free account here and I will be more than happy to help you become another online success!
pls inbox me with the email how Nigerians can participate
Have you tried signing up already?
why is Nigeria not supported
Im dismayed. Asians need to pay before to access your program. So it isn’t FREE at all for beginners.
There are several countries that aren’t able to get the free membership Hon and that’s because of the high rate of fraud. Sorry about that, but there are a lot of people that go premium right away because it’s just a really good program. If it makes you feel better, I didn’t get anything for free when I first found WA and I had to pay up front to see anything on the site. It was well worth it though and I don’t regret anything.
I don’t have computer can use iPad? And also I’m deaf can join?
You definitely don’t need an actual computer, but a keyboard will be great if you have one. As far as being deaf, this will still work for you regardless. I am currently helping one guy that is deaf and he’s doing really good too. You can do it too Michelle!
i am interested from Nigeria but need t
o start with the free registration. how will u help out?
i m simon from Nigeria . i m really interested in this. check my country if it is among the selected for the free registration. u can email me here: firstname.lastname@example.org. thanks
Hey Simon, sorry about that man, but you can’t get the free membership from your country and the only way to get involved is to go premium. I would have to contact the owner for that, so do let me know if you would like to do that instead.
Hi John, my name is Yasmin. I read your blog about WA and I would love to learn more about it. When I tried to signup for the free started pack, I got an error message saying I already had an account. what can I do about that? I just found out about WA so there is no way I already have an account lol.
Thank you in advance.
Hey Yasmin, sorry about that. WA’s security is really strict and sometimes that happens to people trying to signup for certain countries. Let me know where you are trying to signup from and then we can go from there.
I’m trying to sign up from Texas, United States.
Send me an email to (email@example.com) with the following information and I will get back to you ASAP. This also goes to anyone who is having the same problem. Sorry for the inconvenience guys!
I had the same issue so I went ahead and emailed John.
Thanks for the heads up.
When do the monthly payments stop for the premium?
It’s up to you Ann. There’s no contract or anything, so you can cancel whenever you want.
I’m seriously interested in joining WA, and had a few questions:
– I understand hosting is included, so I will need to purchase a domain and autoresponder (if I want to build a list)?
– Once my niche is chosen and I’ve created my site, will my primary daily task be keyword research and creating content?
– Does WA provide good training on creating content?
– It seems a lot of WA members are creating sites that promote WA. WA seems to be their niche, so to speak. Am I off-base. here? Does WA provide a list of sites created by WA members that are NOT in the IM/MMO niche?
Thanks for the comment! WA has everything you need to run an online business, but yes, you would have to buy your domain and autoresponder. You can actually purchase your domain on the WA site, which also can be done through their credit system, which is absolutely a great addition. Unlike before, when we had to get domains on Godaddy and other sites and then have it transferred to WA.
The primary focus of your business would be to do keyword research and create content around those keywords, which will ultimately get you ranked in the search engines, which of course means traffic.
WA provides great training on content creation as well as other tools to get your posts to get ranked in the search engines, which is another great feature that WA has.
WA members most likely choose the work from home niche because they are probably stuck on picking a niche when they first start, but that is only by choice. As far as other member’s sites, you can see some on their profiles, if you’d like to see them, but some people keep them off their profiles so other’s can’t see them.
There are many members that have other sites and some don’t even say anything, but they are pushing over $10k/month with other niches. This thing works man, and you will make it online with WA. Give the free membership a try and you will learn everything within the first few lessons. You’ll be fine man, the trick it to just get started.
I have second series of questions:
What exactly is the business model? There are too many scams out there and they remind me of the South Park episode with the underwear gnomes:
“Step one: steal underwear! Step two: I don’t know what step 2 is… Step three: Profit!!!”
In other words the gnomes didn’t know how to do all the things in between that would cause them to make a profit. I don’t like vague examples so can you walk us through how someone could make money?
How is this different from starting a product review website on one’s own and hoping it gets traffic? I also understand that affiliate marketing is involved. If that is the case, the people first one the site make extra money off the backs of the last to join. Is this correct? If it is, where is the incentive for newbies to join if others will make money off the backs of newbies?
I would love to hear your answers and would also like to know which websites you have that are part of this program. I have two Master’s degrees as well as work experience at some of the best tech companies in the United States. I am staying home with small children and don’t like my time wasted by scams. So can you answer all of my questions as well as explain to those of us who are detail oriented the nuts and bolts of the business model?
I will give you an example of what I am asking:
Let’s say I am a fan of X brand of shampoo. Would I set up a site reviewing x brand of shampoo and then have a way for consumers to click a link through my site to buy the shampoo? And if this is the case, who takes the payment and who gets a cut of products sold? Is it me and the company OR is it me, a bunch of other people who joined before me, the owners of wealth affiliate, and the shampoo company? How much are the commission cuts etc and how are they paid out?
That’s too funny Sarah (lol) and it’s completely normal to be skeptical about anything especially online. I have fallen for many scams myself and lost thousands of dollars before I actually gave this site a chance.
As far as the business model is concerned, they TEACH you how to create your own business website around a specific niche and then you will build out content (even shampoo) around that topic, which will then be found by people who are already looking for that type of information in the first place.
It is just YOU and the company. No one else. You make the sales, the company gets their cut and you get yours and that is it. I don’t get a commission from your work and no one on WA does either.
Now what WA is…it is a site that teaches you how to do everything I just explained as well as the opportunity to interact with other people doing the same exact business you are doing.
No one is competing with anyone as we all have different niches, which is why you will get nothing but the best help in the same type of business that everyone on that site is doing. There is absolutely NO RECRUITING here, which is another plus.
If you are still skeptical, don’t forget that you can create a free starter membership account without having to put in any credit card information. From there, you will learn everything about how everything works as a whole. Give it a try Sarah and I will be more than happy to help you get your business off the ground. I’m sure you’ll like what is offered here!

I have a question:
How does Wealth Affiliate pay its members? Do they do it via Paypal or some other known system?
The reason I ask is because there are many bogus schemes that write someone a check, but the check never clears the bank. Does Wealth Affiliate pay its members via a means that is guaranteed?
WA doesn’t pay its members unless you are apart of their affiliate program. What WA teaches you, is how to create a site, become affiliates with sites like Amazon, Ebay, etc, and then they write you a check or whatever method they offer to pay you. The check will clear the bank and if you choose direct deposit for some, the money will be there when they say it’s going to be there. It all depends on what sites and companies that you become affiliated with that will determine your method of pay Sarah.
How many Affiliate options do you have to pick from through WA? You mentioned Ebay and Amazon. How many other options are there?
There are thousands of affiliate programs and it’s really dependent on your niche. I just mentioned those because they are big online shopping sites and I wanted to mention that you can even earn from them. They aren’t the only options and there are a lot, lot more out there to choose from.
I am Damien from Luxemburg but living in Germany now. I have joined under you.
I tried a lot of things to earn money online. Qalso affiliate marketing in Germany, but they asking to much to show you how to have success , or they promise you support , but at least you will never hear from them again(sometimes)
Hope that I can get 100% support from you.
Hope we can keep touch by mail.
I will take a look at the site now.
Damien from Europe
You definitely have my support man and I am more than willing to help you out. Trust me, I know how it is to be online trying to find something that works without anyone guiding you. Let’s just say it hurts the bank account more than anything else. There is no way you will not succeed with this site man and I have already found you on there, so I hope you got my message. You can always go to my profile and send any questions you may have my way. Here’s the link to my profile if you can’t find me.
I agree. You make a good support 🙂
Thank you for everything :). See you on WA.
Thanks Damian and yes, I will see you inside WA!
I just tried to sign up for the free account and got an “Oops you already have an account” msg about a dozen times before I gave up trying. I have never had an account before, why am I getting these messages?
It’s their security settings that’s causing this to happen. Send the following information to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will have this sorted out for you. If any of you are having this problem, just do the same and I will help you from there.
Thanks John, just sent you my details … fingers crossed!
my name is Chris i reside in South Africa, i would like you to shed more light on the Wealthy Affiliate, i am only high school and a College graduate, so i want to know if it require me to be more educated before i can do this? i want to join the premium, i still want to know more about this, i want something that will give me a steady income.. thank you .
You definitely don’t need to be more educated to do anything with WA as you will get the education there. It will definitely give you a steady income if you apply what you are taught. Everything is explained in this review, so it’s really a matter of whether you want to join or not. See if you can create a free starter account from your country. If not, you will have to go premium right off the bat.

Hi John I’ve never done anything like this before what’s my first move to get this business moving and will you help me because I’m like totally green when it comes to this stuff. I guess what I’m asking is can I be sucessful with this?because online I’ve wasted alot of money.looking forward to hearing from you.
You just need to create an account Kisha and you will learn everything from that point on. I will definitely help you as I know how it is to get started without any direction. So just get signed up and we can go from there!

I tried to register but it says my country is not supported..This is unfair
Yeah sorry about that Olanrewaju. Some countries are not supported due to a high fraud rate coming from these specific countries. For some people that still want to join, they can do so but only if they go premium. That’s an option if you are serious about joining.
I have tried registering for the premium and I still got the “your country is not supported” response.
Are we outrightly not allowed to participate or register? Please help
Where are you from Tony? There are some countries that aren’t allowed for the free membership, due to a high amount of fraud and people trying to game the system. You can still join, but premium would be your only way around that. Sorry about that man, but that’s just their policy.
Interested, but a little confused. When I join WA and create my niche, where will the products I want to sell come from? A dropshipper, etc.? And what are the other out of pocket costs are associated with acquiring/selling these niche products? Just want to know what to expect. Thanks!
The products will come from the company you become affiliated with and isn’t about drop shipping. You simply signup to their affiliate program and get your own links to promote their products. There are no fees to signup with any of the companies and there are no other out of pocket costs for selling any of their products. You get the link, sell the product, and get a commission.
Of course there’s more to it than just getting links and trying to get people to buy things, which is what Wealthy Affiliate will teach you. And in regards to WA, there are no other costs either. Hope this helps Crystal!
Yes, helps a lot. Thanks, John!
That’s great to hear Crystal and good luck!
Hello John. This is funny as I came upon this review from being sent to a link to look into another program from a lady on facebook. Their program would cost me over 2k to get in to learn how to earn online income. Im finding organizations are not devulging all information openly. I have lost money as well. Everything is so saturated too. Ive also attempted direct sales w/recruiting downlining. Problem is found these are saturated markets and social media marketing saturated. Im a widowed mom and limited income determined to earn online because know some people are doing it. I want to be raising my daughter not using daycares to raise her and freedom to work from anywhere so can take her places.
Alologize so long. Appreciate the no hype Ive been hearing for many months and free membership for people to see what its about shows honesty. I will start there for 3-4 wks or so see value. I fully agree the pay membership is low for training. Knowledge is powerful. Once get my hands on something legit will run with it. Thanks for honesty of making money requires knowledge and hard work not ” push button get rich”.
Not a problem Shannon and I’m sure you will like what WA has to offer. If you have the drive and determination to run any type of business, this will do more than you think. Try and find the push button magic and you can expect to keep looking forever. I’m glad you see the big picture though Shannon and I know you will become another success story online!
I currently have a website/blog. Does WA only assist me when I purchase a site or transfer a domain to their hosting? Or will I learn how to drive traffic to my current website and how to monetize it without having to pay for WA’s hosting?
WA is really an all in one affiliate marketing site so you can use it for one or the other or of course both. You can learn how to do everything related to making money online with your current site and I have actually done that before until I actually realized that WA’s hosting service was a lot better than the one I was using. You will learn for sure Andrew, so go for it!
How long does it take to start making money? Does the $50 a month pay for itself right away?
It will definitely not pay itself off right away, but do remember that you are paying for everything that WA has to offer. From the building, hosting and maintenance of your site, to the education and support, that is what you sill be paying for. Every single member runs their own business and they are really in competition with themselves and no one else, which is why everyone is willing to help you.
The making money part really depends on the person and the niche they choose. This is a business you are building, so even if it takes you a couple of months to make back that $50, just know that it will only grow from that point on. For me, it took me 3 months before I made that first sale, but that was all I needed to show me that this thing actually worked. If I can make $1 I knew I could make $10 and so on.
I can promise you that you will not find a better program than this Halla so I do recommend you at least create a free starter account and see what they are about. If you don’t like it, just continue on with life like you never came across this. I hope this answers your question Halla.
Thank you! I will definatley be trying the free starter account!
I was curious about this because I had joined WA once before, but never picked it up. So, I canceled my membership (the free one). I was wondering if you can stay a free member for as long as you like, or is there a limited amount of time you can remain free?
Why did you cancel? lol. You get your free membership for as long as you want. Now if you do upgrade, you can’t go back to being a free member. Try accessing your account again and see if you can get back in. I’m pretty sure you can.
Jonh, hi! so many questions and detailed answers, thank you for that! So, my question is, can I do it being from Uzbekistan? does it make difference in something like earning money or get the adds? do I have to create my website in English only? should I be good at writing?
You can do it from anywhere in the world Infiniya as long as you have a computer and an internet connection, which I’m guessing you have. You will be creating your own website and you definitely don’t have to be good at writing. Just like you, I was worried about writing, but all I wanted was to finally make money online. Just like anything else, I got better over time. Being that I built my site around things I am interested in, the “writing” part was not so much of a task. You will get better the more you do it, so don’t let that stop you from anything. There are many tools that allow your visitors to convert it from English to whatever language or vise versa, but I think it would be better to have it start off in English as that will be your main audience. I’m on the go at the moment, but I hope this helps!
Great review on the Wealthy Affiliate. I’m glad I signed up and can see now the long term benefits of this program. It does take work but worth the effort. Probably the only online entity that teaches you the right way with no hard upsells or hype.
I’m glad to see that WA has helped you Dave and I hope things are going great with you too. Another thing I like about this site, is that you don’t see it all over the place with people promoting it, because it does not work that way. You run your own business and so does everyone else. You are the boss and you control everything that goes on with your business. WA is just the platform from which you learn and work out of, which most people don’t understand. Thanks for chiming in Dave!
Hi John, All of this sounds great with WA , I am completely computer illiterate but you explain how simple it is , so I’d like to give it a try, my only questions are : would this be considered self employment & would I need to file a 1099 for self employment taxes ? Thanks ! ~ Sabrina
When you create your own business with what WA teaches and you start making money (depending on where you are from), you will need to file taxes like you would a regular business.
I’m a complete newbie with not much time to spend on the computer and totally useless at making a website etc. which is the promise that attracted me to Evergreen Wealth Formula. (haven’t bought yet)
Can you please tell me if I can have something up and running and monetized quickly while I learn at my own pace? (slow)
Also I hate facebook and twitter and all social media actually and would not want anything to do with them at all for any reason, are they necessary?
Thanks for response.
Building a website is a lot easier than you think Victoria and it literally can be done in under 30 seconds. Watch this video here and you will see how easy it really is.
You can have your site up and running, while you learn at your own pace too, which is exactly how things will be done with WA. Social media is not necessary, so don’t worry about that part either.
Are you familiar with MLSP? I think it is similar but very hard to navigate and sooooooooooo much to learn all the time. I really need something that will work if I put the time in. Just not a techie kind of person.
Yeah I was actually a member of MLSP back when they first started. That was my very first investment that broke the $1k mark. Bad idea on my part. If it wasn’t for the Wealthy Affiliate, I would’ve probably quit by now. True story. It is definitely really easy to understand and the support you get is worth more than anything out there. Create a free membership Merry and you will see what they are all about.
Hi John I came across your post while looking about mlm companies and job killer. I’m very interesting in WA. I think I will give it a try but before I sign up I have some questions that I would like to ask you.
1. If this really can bring an income from affiliate marketing from your own experience and from people that you know if I will put in 20 hours/week to work on it how much money do you think I could make in a month or a year from one website?
2. I’m new to affitiate marketing and building a website. But my brother who is working in this field he explained to me a little bit about how it works. He said that two ways to make my website to the top of google page is to pay google adwords which could cost a lot of money and if my site didn’t sell anything or sell the product that is not that expensive I could end up paying a lot of money and not make any profit. Also there is no guarantee that people will click on the ad from retail store’s in my website and buy things. The commission that I could make might be very low too. Another way to make my website to be on the top of google page is to try to go to a lot of website and post my website there. This way could take a lot of time. My point is could I expect to make great money from doing this, I mean at least $2000/month. Or I could make this much money, but I have to spend a lot of time in front of computer all day long??? I’m a stay at home mom and looking for a work from home job that I can spend a lot of time with my children. Thank you.
The way affiliate marketing works is not like most people think. There is no given timeframe as to when you will make money and there is no specific amount of time that is needed. We all do things differently and everything here can be done whenever you want to.
You are going to be building out your site constantly and consistently, which is what will lead to you making money. If you follow the training and apply what is taught, you can and will build a business that will make you more money than you think. The trick is to not focus on the money, but to focus on building out your site. The money will come so don’t worry about that part.
Building a website is not hard at all either. Maybe 5 years ago, but not today. You can literally have your own website up and running in under 30 seconds. Also, don’t forget that you actually get 2 free websites, which you can do whatever you want with. Click here to get your free sites.
You definitely don’t have to spend all day behind a computer. I spend 2 hours a day max now, and it is really all about maintaining my site at this point. $2,000 is a small goal, so work hard at this and you will see what can really be made online.
I am a stay at home dad too and I spend almost all my time with my kids, simply because I work when they are sleeping. Then again, they go to school to, so I lose time there as well. You get my point.
Just get started for free and you will see exactly what this is all about. Just the first lesson alone will give you a better understanding of what you will be doing. See you soon!
Okay; so there seem to be quite a few ‘real’ comments and replies on this site. Not to be the Doubting Thomas; I want to see just how really real you are. I am recently laid-off from my rat-race manufacturing job. On paper I only have a high-school education; but in myself I believe I have what it takes to be independent. I also believe the rat-race is so 20th century. This is the second time in my working life that I have been laid-off from a job to which I devoted 100% of my effort and skill, plus multiple years of time. I’m sick of being at someone else’s whim; but lack the financial capital to start a business. What are your thoughts?
I’m not even going to get in the real talk with you but I will tell you about business and your starting capital. We all know that it isn’t going to cost you $100 to start a real business, it just doesn’t work that way. I once owned a bar and that not only cost me thousands of dollars, but it also gave me the biggest headaches ever.
What the Wealthy Affiliate teaches, is how to create and operate an online business and yes it is under $50. Not only is it really cheap to get started, but it pays more than any business I’ve ever owned.
In any other business I’ve owned, it took me a couple of years to get in the green, but with the little money I’ve invested into my online business, it took me less than a year to make a solid steady income. You really can’t beat what the online world has to offer and it’s really that simple.
I hope this helps John and yes, I am as real as it gets.
Hie john I am in South Africa,I need to know more about this WA would you by any means email me so that I know how it works
Sorry it took me a while to respond Sharly. Was at the beach all day and now I am toast! I sent you an email, but if you signup for the free starter membership, you will learn everything in the first lesson.
Wonderful work John indeed. would you kindly tell me the kind of theme you are using. is it one of the free ones or you paid for it.
thanks in advance
I actually paid for this them Sam, but I really didn’t need to. I did it for the font, can you believe that? lol. Oh well, I like it and it is super easy to work with. The free themes work just fine, but I guess I’m trying to justify my purchase. You can check it out here if you want to see the exact theme I am using for this site.
Hi, John. I am new to all of this, looking to diversify and make a residual income that does not require MLM type recruiting. I am looking at Job Killing but understand it comes at a high cost?
Interested in learning more about WA…
Yeah don’t pay for anything out there that costs thousands of dollars. Been there, done that. This little investment you will make with WA will offer you a lot more value and gives you more than you are actually paying for. Just create a free starter account and you will see exactly what I’m talking about.
This is exactly what attracted my attention and like this theme for ( THE FONT) So, don’t feel bad I will buy it too. Great fonts like this makes great presentation.
Alright man, enjoy!
John hello from Tennessee, I have a question before I sign up. Now when the shopper see something on your site ( shoes) who sends them the merchandise? I’ve read all the comments here and I don’t think anyone has asked that question. If they have asked I am deeply sorry for asking it again. I just want to make sure I’m not responsible for mailing out something to someone that’s all.
No worries Alexandria. With affiliate marketing, you don’t do any actual selling or shipping, which is another great thing about the whole business. When you become an affiliate with other sites like Amazon for example, you will be sending these “shoppers” to their site due to your recommendation or whatever reason you gave them. Whatever they do on that site is all on Amazon.
Now whatever they do buy (even if it is not that product you talked about) you will get a commission no matter what the product is. So even if they were looking for a shoe and bought a flatscreen TV, you get paid for both. Make sense?
You will learn all of this in the first few lessons, which you actually get as a free starter member. Just create a free account and you will see how everything is done. No credit card required, so just take advantage of the free stuff they have to offer. If you like it, then continue. That’s all there is to it.
So you are saying: you will get an commission ONLY if something is bought?
Sorry to interrupt the conversation between you and Alexandra.
Pls notify me when you reply John,
As far as affiliate marketing is concerned, yes. However, there are other ways to make money within your site, but it all depends on what your plans are. You can make money by putting ads on your site and having someone click on them or you can even make money by getting people to signup for another program. Again, it all depends on how you want to do things.
I know that WA is an online affiliate training facility. Could the training and web site also be used to sell my own products from my eBay and Etsy stores?
You can definitely use it to sell your own products as it is designed to show you how to get traffic to your own site. You can sell them as an affiliate, or as the actual seller. Just signup to the starter membership and you will learn exactly how money is made with WA.
i wasnt sure how to post a new comment, so i am trying the reply button here! i was looking over WA and found “Another Unique Opportunity. Our Affiliate Program.”
Could you please tell me a bit about that and how it works? is it for premium members only?
thanks mate! love your site
I don’t really understand what you’re asking. What opportunity?
On the “success” page on the WA website 🙂
—> Another Unique Opportunity. Our Affiliate Program.
WA boasts one of the highest paying affiliate programs in the world. Paying out extraordinary amounts of commissions annually to affiliates, you can partake in our affiliate program free of charge as part of your membership. Promote something that you love and feel good about, it doesn’t get any sweeter than that!
Oh, lol. Yeah there are literally a handful of legit programs out there and none of them can compare. The affiliate program is great and I actually made it to Las Vegas last week, which was unreal. You can read more about my Vegas experience here and see how real this program really is. You would be crazy not to at least give WA a try!
so does that mean you can promote WA and get commissions for signups? or am i reading that totally wrong?! quite possible, im very green lol!
but yes, am def going too 🙂
In the world of making money online, there is an affiliate program for almost every single program out there to include the thousands of scams. The sad part about all this is the scams offer the highest commissions, but I am not in the business to promote them. WA gives a decent commission but it allows me to help anyone and everyone that joins. Of course the ones that signup under me get to see exactly how I run my business. SO yes, you can promote WA and get commissions even if you are a free member!
ok awesome, that’s what i wanted to know! thanks mate, youre a legend 🙂 keep an eye out for me
Hahahaha, I am nothing more than a normal person who is trying to help anyone who is willing to put in the work. There’s nothing more satisfying than helping people and allowing them to create success. That is more than enough to make me smile and helping just one person will make a big difference.
So do u get a commission if you are a FREE user and you sign someone under you as a FREE member also?
It’s so cool u can do that if u want to but if you aren’t confident or the type of person that can do that like in MLM’s etc, there is still a way to make money here!
Yup, no recruiting here. You see my friend, you can really direct anyone to ANY product even MLMs, but what WA teaches is what makes it absolutely amazing. We all run different businesses and promoting WA is NOT the only way to make money. The training is top notch and with a community of like minded people, you can’t go wrong. But, yes, you can still get a commission as a free member of WA.
Great info! thanks so much and sorry for so many questions of you!
Chat soon 🙂
Lol, not a problem man!
That’s great to hear Dave! I know you will love what is offered in this site.
Would it work for a father who has been on Night Shifts for 8 years? I so want to get off this graveyard shift band wagon.
Anyone can do this Tom. I was in the army and I now do this full-time so obviously anyone can do this! Lol
I have something to say, first off, THANK YOU John, for the TRUTH EXPOSURE FOR THIS IPS BS! I ALMOST got hit the same way that you were with it, by a TRUSTED source and to be perfectly honest, I’m not real sure that SHE even knows what she’s gotten herself into, I met her through an online money making FB group where they call themselves CASH MILLIONAIRES and the only MILLIONAIRE in that group is the admin who’s in big trouble now that they have been EXPOSED for fraudulent activity! Yet they, like MOST of these ROTATING OTHER PPL’S CASH INTO THEIR OWN BANK ACCOUNT groups, they have been FORCED to STOP taking sign ups, meanwhile looking for the loophole they need to continue with ROBBING ppl blind! So thank goodness I am only out $3 on THAT scheme, the same girl who conned me into trying this CASH COW ?, *now changed the name of the group to 1MILLION FAST and it’s basically the same thing, just that LOOPHOLE they needed, not to get out of their troubles, but to continue taking PPL’S money and thus, only CREATING even MORE trouble for themselves! Money ?, like drugs ?, can become so great an addiction, that ppl are willing to put their freedom on the line to keep getting their “fix”. I was a member of WEALTHY AFFILIATES and could not keep up with the $47/month fee for premium membership and so I had to drop out, UNFORTUNATELY! I am once again in WA, happily!! They have since LOWERED the premium membership fee to $27 (HALF) what it was and I say that it’s the BEST program I’ve been in since I started my online venture to make $$, I think that the value of what’s inside WA is worth thousands of dollars and it’s the REAL DEAL! NO ADMINS IGNORING YOU, we both know that ANYONE who is premium in WA can PM either Kyle or Carson and ACTUALLY get a response! The group is full of support from newbies’ questions to seasoned professionals who have been IM’s for yrs and GIVE you A+, TOP NOTCH advice and information that the gurus are charging upwards of $97 for, it’s INSANE and 90% of it is ILLEGAL! I just read in the warrior plus forum that Amazon is suing hundreds or thousands maybe, for giving FAKE reviews on FIVERR, SUING the PPL! BUT WHY ISN’T FIVERR owning their own responsibility as a trusted source for ALLOWING ppl, avg Joe or Jane, to advertise in THEIR site to post FAKE, FALSE, WHATEVER you want to call it, reviews on products or services that they themselves have NEVER seen or used!? How is Fiverr getting away with this!? I joined and QUICKLY quit, I offered a LEGITIMATE gig, to proofread and/or edit any writing up to 1,000 words and never checked in more than once to see if anyone wanted my services, BC they don’t! They want LAW SUITS for the idiots that are OPENLY ADVERTISING TO BREAK LAWS! I LOVE WA, IT TRULY IS THE BEST WAY to start what truly IS a JOURNEY, it’s a process one MUST take, patiently LEARNING about internet marketing and advertising and branding, website building and maintaining your income by fresh content flow, stuff blows up, it comes out, goes viral and bt the time a newbie like me even gets the hang of it, IF they EVER do, it’s ALREADY been done by everyone else and it’s OLD NEWS and therefore becomes either USELESS information or material that ONLY a UNSUSPECTING NEWBIE will purchase and be stuck with USELESS information, well, is have a conscience and could not sleep ? at night knowing that I scammed someone who was desperate to learn ? to make real money and have a sustainable future from my so called product or service that I full well knew was only really going to benefit ME! IMO, ppl like that have what is called BAD ? KARMA coming their way and that’s why their GET RICH QUICK lives fie out, they go broke BC you will NEVER profit in life from LIES AND SCHEMES BC eventually, it will return to haunt you! You WILL die broke AND/OR LONELY! WEALTHY AFFILIATES IS WHERE IT’S AT‼
Not a problem Julie and I’m glad you can see the big picture too. Thank you for the heads up on these FB groups as I don’t even bother wasting any time on them. Everyone and their mothers are on there trying to push out their products to you and they are all hoping and praying to get someone to signup under them. You don’t see any WA members trying to tell you how this can change your life because everyone runs THEIR OWN business and no one is trying to make money for getting you to join. There aren’t many legitimate programs out there and this is not just one of the few, but really the best one out there like you stated. Again, thanks for sharing!
Hi admin! I am really interested and since this is my first time doing like this for I am scammed ma y times in several revshare and forex robot, may I ask if it is possible for you to email me a copy if how it works. I already signed up but since Philippines is not possible for a free membership but premium instead. All I wanna know is the steps by steps process before I pay to upgrade to a premium account. Here’s my email add: email@example.com.
Thank you and more power!
Thank you for your review. Excellent summary. I was a WA member 10 years ago (when I started my journey on the Internet). I had to let the program because I begun other projects, but I have to say that it is the best and more honest program to learn Internet Marketing that exists.
Thanks Jovanny! 10 years ago?! Thats crazy! If I had found this site 10 years ago I would literally be making over 100k/month. I’m glad you are being honest and I hope things are going great for you!
I COULDN’T HAVE SAID THAT BETTER MYSELF! 110% AGREED!
I am thinking of joining it and to be honest i really liked how u replied to every one here so can u help me out wit the program and I am from bangladesh but do have a paypal account if it works in the siteand if i remain to be a free member can i earn from it ?
You can earn just from the starter membership Munauar, just as long as you applied what is taught, as the premium membership is for those who are really going to take this serious. What you learn from the starter membership is exactly how you will make money online, but the premium membership will show you tons of different ways you can improve your online business. Either way, they are both great.
Hello. I’m Alex from Indonesia. Can I join with this WA if my english not that good? Thx anyway.
Anyone can join WA my friend, even if English is not your first language. What some people do is use Google Translate or other apps that allow you to read the stuff on your site using whatever language you speak.
Hi is the trial for 7 days after which you have to pay nearly 50 per month? If so ghostwriting is that different from other scams?
You upgrade on your own Indar. You can be a free member for as long as you want, the 7 day thing is related to the bonus that is offered within the site. So if you go premium within those 7 days, you get your first month for $19. If you don’t like what you have to see, you really don’t have to do anything because they can’t pull any money from your bank account.
This is Ravi from India and I think there is no inhibition in my joining WA from here..
But,first, let me congratulate you on your excellent, unbiased,honest review which touched on the very points I wanted answers to.
This is the best review I have ever come across content wise and written in flawless English- literally and grammatically..
You have clinched it. I am going to join WA sooner rather than later.
By the way, I am a retired engineer ( metallurgy) but only a little bit computer literate.
Am I game for the course( WA ) ?
Also, will it be too much to elicit an answer from you despite your busy schedule ?
Wishing you a very happy new year and please keep reviewing.
I am never too busy to answer any questions Ravi, although some emails do get lost in my inbox. I too was not a very computer savvy dude, but I did have the drive to make things happen. You can do it too my friend and I can promise you that. Stick with the training, apply what is taught, and the rest is history. Were you able to get the free trial?
Happy New Year to you and your family and I look forward to working with you more!
Anybody, and I do mean ANYBODY, is “game” for the course, as you put it. You will LEARN how to become computer savvy, everyone has to start SOMEWHERE and WEALTHY AFFILIATES is the BEST PLACE TO start! John…do you need a moderator or want to hire me to fill in here for you!?
How can I be sure that this will work and you’re not simply recruiting for WA ? Sure you’ve posted other success stories, but a lot of scam companies do that as well. I’m a mum of 3 and don’t particularly want to waste my time.
I am not a recruiter Cherish and that is not what is taught at WA. You will learn how to create your own business and make money selling other people’s products. You work on your business for you and only you, which is why people are so eager to help you within the site. I can almost guarantee that I was probably apart of some of the scams you came across as I too have lost a lot (and I mean a lot) of money trying to play these scammer’s games.
For whatever this is worth, you get a completely free trial, which will show you exactly what you will be doing. If you don’t like it, you simply do nothing. This is what has worked for me and thousands of of other online marketers and I know it can work for you. No hype, but one of the few legitimate ways to make money online. Join for free and I will help you get started, so you can see what everything is about.
Hi I’m in Australia will this work for me? Also how do you find your niche to sell.
This will work from any country Janelle. You will find your niche by simply figuring out what you are really interested in. Once you get onto the site, that is the first thing you will learn, so get signed up and give it a shot. You won’t be disappointed.
thanks for this…i will definitely try this!!!hope this will help me with my money problem…
Not going to happen overnight, but if you do apply what is taught, you can say bye bye to your money problems. I have seen and joined way too many programs man and I can tell you that they are all built off of one thing. HYPE! There is really no hype here, but this definitely does work. I’m glad you are going to try this my friend and I look forward to working with you!
Really interested in learning more I just read your review for Infinity profit system, I had someone trying to get me to sign up and after I read your review I was like NO THANK YOU!!! anyways I’m a stay at home mom and my husband is the only one who works and I been trying to find something to help better our lives. if you could please send me an email please. firstname.lastname@example.org
Will do Beth!
Hello john, i will be glad if you can suggest any other programme for me to start since my location is restricted from joining WA. Please send to my email. email@example.com. Thanks.
What country are you from?
I am just like you and been scammed for many times . I left the work place because the job I had was too physical with my health issues. I was working part time online and thought for sure I could make a go of it but failed plus lost all my savings . I have tying to the work force again and hate every single second of it .
This blog has peaked my fire again and would love to talk to you . I am impressed that you have answered every post here and treated everyone with respect that it rare .
First of all, sorry to hear about your savings. I have lost a couple thousand dollars myself and if it wasn’t for Wealthy Affiliate I probably would’ve lost a lot more. There are just so many “opportunities” out there and it’s really hard to believe what even works. Although I can’t save everyone from falling for scams, I do my best to help as many people as I can. Some of course won’t believe me either, but that’s just the way things are. Thanks for your comment my friend and I look forward to working with you too!
I heard of WA 3 years ago before I left the Philippines to work here in Kuwait. Thanks, John, for this review. After this comment, I will go ahead and signup to WA. More blessings to you and your household! 🙂
Sounds great Angelica and I look forward to seeing you create your very own online business!
Thanks for the informative review. I have been a free member of WA for quite a while, but I plan to go premium in the new year. There are many things I still don’t understand and here are a few of my questions:
1. I have never done any IM or had a blog in my life, will this work for me?
2. What mode of payment is used to pay people for their commissions?
3. With another job, at least how many hours should i set aside per day for WA to get some results within a few months.
4. What is your contact, I would like to communicate further with you.
Hey Cate, let me answer your questions for you real fast.
1. This will definitely work for you, no doubt about that.
2. There are many ways to get paid, but it all depends on who you become affiliated with. Some vendors use Paypal and some just do it old school and send you a check. It all depends on who you signup with.
3. You can do this with even just 2 hours out of your day, it is really up to you. Most people spend about 99% of the time on FB and whatnot so you can’t count that as “working”. I spend about 2 hours a day now and that’s about it.
4. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or Skype @ johncruzonline
Hi john,pls e mail me de detials mn how to start.i am wisdom 4rm nigeria.
Hi john,can wA be done in Nigeria?if yes,pls e mail me on how to do it.
hye John, Wealthy Affiliate has been the one program I trust right now from my review after l join many scam program like rank-news.com. l just wanna make some side income beside my active activity including internet. Actually l`m a newbie in online business. So, what kind of business it is that can make money from that? Sorry for my child question.
There is no silly question Mohd as I once was confused just like you. If you do decide to join WA, you will be creating your own website and selling other people’s products to make a commission. Just follow the training my friend and you will be just fine!
I have an MLM business that I’m very passionate about but can”t seem to learn how to market it online. Can WA help me with my MLM business?
Yes it can. It can teach you how to promote any product really, which is what makes them unique. Just get in and you will see exactly how things are done and how this can benefit your business too.
I am also member of Wealthy Affiliate but I didn’t take it seriously. I just joined this program three month back and then do not pay any attention to this program. Can this program can still help me?
That’s actually the same problem most people have Iqbal so you are not alone. No one wants to put in the work and effort that is needed to make a solid income online and most just signup to Wealthy Affiliate but still keep looking for that push button program that will spit out money daily. Here’s a tip. IT DOESN’T EXIST! Get back into WA and all you really have to do is get trained, apply what is taught, and make money. I mean, it’s completely free to signup, so I can see how people just signup and push it to the “I’ll do that later” pile. This site works my friend, so get back on board and make it happen!
Hi John, i tried to create a free account but my country is not supported. Now my question is how can i join WA as a premium member?
It should give you the option to go premium if you can’t create a free account, right after you signup. What did it tell you after you signed up? Did it not give you the option to upgrade?
How long have you been with wa?
You’re doing mlm yes?
I actually found WA 5 years ago and did absolutely nothing! I only took action last year, so you can say that I have been with them for a little over a year now. I am not doing MLM, although I have tried about 5 of them. Had some success, but that lasted only until my downlines figured out that MLM wasn’t for them. Then of course that left me with nothing.I now do online marketing full-time and yes, I learned what I know with WA. I hope that answers your questions CJ.
Hi John I’m from the Philippines and only the premium membership is available. But before I sign up I would like to know how many months it would take for me to start the business going.
You get your business up and running as soon as you get your site live on the internet. If you get to just the first lesson of the training, everything will be explained there my friend. Get signed up for free and you will see exactly how everything is done here.
It’s not available in India…Is there any solution?
Sorry about that man, but because of fraud, some countries aren’t allowed to get the free trial. You can still go premium, but you won’t get the discount my friend. Most people just go premium because of this problem, but it’s really up to you.
Really great review, Mr John.
The world needs more of your kind.
I am very excited to make your acquaintance and hoping to learn a lot from you.
Hi there. is this program good if i already HAVE a product and want to start selling it online? For example homeade chocolates?
Can you please email me some more information about the company.
I just want to thank you for putting forth the time and effort to educate us on what WA is all about. I, like everyone else here, have spent endless hours online searching for a way to make an income online. I am so tired of looking for jobs and not getting hired or even responses and not because I am not highly educated or qualified, it’s because of the tremendous competition and influx of unemployed people!! And creditors don’t grant grace with there is no income to pay them. I have literally spent endless hours looking at various ways to work at home, googling to see if each online program is legit or not and of course, most are. I’ve spent too much exhausting time listening to 30 minute presentations to come to the end of how much it would cost. You have represented this program so well and the fact that the owners of WA are presenting it free to start with speaks volumes. I can’t begin to express how excited i am to begin the program where my dreams can maybe, just maybe finally come true. Many blessings to you and WA.
Sounds good, definitely give it a try. Just wondering, can it be implemented only on English language site or it works with other languages too? Thank you!
You can make your site in any language you choose, just remember what market you are going to target though. You can always work on your site with your own language and then have it translated into English also, so that might be a better route for you Elena.
Thanks a lot! I have another concern, where to get a content. All info which I know, I know from somebody’s else websites, or from books, it is just my interest, not personal experience. And if I put those info on my site, it will be kind of plagiarism. I’m confused so much about it.
Iam a army veteran looking for a new career. I was definitely wondering if you could call me or email me more about how to work from home and make a great income. My email is email@example.com
Thanks for serving man! I too am an army vet, so of course I would love to help you out. Actually I help anyone and everyone, but you know what I mean. I’ll be sending you an email man, so we can get you started.
Wondering if you could send me an email as well about opportunity and some more details and what not.
Email sent Nick!
I really would like some more info also John. I am a freelance worker for MLB, NBA and the D League and I love it and would like to quit my desk job. I would need to make 2-3 grand a month is this something that is possible. Could you email me and send me some more detailed info on this program. firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi John, Santosh here from India. I head about WA a year back while searching for home business idea. I am a salaried but I wanna be full time home business guy. I have also tried many online programs and wasted my hard earn money. Now I have some experience about affiliate/internet marketing.
But my biggest problem is TRAFFIC. My most interested NICHE is HOME BASED BUSINESS or like that but I have read somewhere that it is very competitive and there is no easy money. Is it possible to make some money with WA in this niche? What will you say?
Hope you getting me, and thanks for wonderful review!!!
To me, there is no niche too competitive. WA has a “bootcamp” that is designed to promote this specific niche and it will show you how there are soooo many ways to promote the home based business niche and the absolute best ways to get very targeted and quality traffic to your site. Get signed up for free here man and you’ll see exactly what I’m talking about!
I hope this doesn’t seem like a silly question, but I won’t know unless I ask. In order to “sell” anything you have to already have product available for purchase, of which I have none. I am however involved with a couple of affiliate programs that have products they sell and I promote to make sales. Would I be able to sell THOSE items on my website with WA?
Most definitely Kim. I don’t own a single product and I “sell” them on my sites, but of course I do it how it’s taught with WA, so there’s no direct selling or dealing with customers. My site does all the work for me!
Hello John, my name is Macphil from Nigeria, i tried signing up with the link you provided but it keeps saying my country does not support the program. can you assist me.
Sorry about that Machpill, but there are certain countries that are not allowed to get the free trial and it looks like Nigeria is one of them. Does it give you the option to go premium?
Hi John, I am really bummed that lines-news is not real, but I had a feeling; way too easy.
I have 1 quick question I will start with the free then will upgrade with in 7 days to premium, is the $19.00
just for the first month then back to$ 47.00 per month or does it stay at 19. Thanks Joe
Yes sir. $19 for your first month if you upgrade within that 7 day window and then it will go to $47, but either way, it is totally worth it!
Sounds great. Thank you for responding. Joe
Can you email me more info please!
I sure can, but what is it that you would like to know more about?
I am I DESPERATE NEED to make money…I’m looking for something real with good pay. How do you earn money with Wealthy Affiliate?
If you signup for the free membership, everything will be explained in the very first lesson. Give it a try and you’ll see how simple yet brilliant the whole concept is. Get signed up here for free!
Sorry for asking you this question? How do I cancel my free membership account? I’m afraid that I need to pay for something in the future even if I suddenly stop this programme.
There is no credit card required for the free membership Ruffey, so I don’t see how they could possibly pull anything from you. You really don’t have to do anything at this point and I promise you that no one will be billing you in the future.
I desperately want to make money online and i also wasted too much money but nothing got. Now sometimes its very difficult to believe somebody but this one look like legitimate.
I am from india so WA is not giving me free trial and also there are too many doubts in my mind. So its really hard to decide what to do. Please guide me.

Alright man, I’ll contact you.
Hi John- I have a wordpress website for retail home and garden decor, is this something that would be a good fit? WA is the first site I know of to offer something to help me with my existing business, which is struggling due to cost of quality targeted advertising. I am completely out of money and a business loan is still a month or so out, I have tried a few other affiliate programs and they all have me doing for THEM what I should be doing for my own site. Really enjoyed your reviews and am interested in joining. How much time is involved, say, weekly, to make this fly? I have an almost full-time job that I juggle finding enough time for my business. Any advice greatly appreciated-Thanks
Yeah there are just too many programs out there that really do nothing good for you and also want you to promote them to make money. WA is nothing like that. They show you how to build your own business, which you control and promote the stuff you want.
You also don’t need some type of big loan or a lot of money to start your own online business either. WA is a complete steal with the absolute best value out there. If someone like me can make money online, anyone can.
They also give a completely free trial, so you get to see what you’re getting yourself into, which is very rare to find in this line of work. The best part about all this is you have me and others that are making money online to help you, so you really have nothing to lose.
Hi there, Im form malaysia… can i join this business if i dont live same with your country..??
You sure can, and you can also signup for free.
Hi there. Will WA welcome a lifestyle blog?
Yes, it can help you create any type of blog and then show you how to monetize it.
Hi John,I want to know if we would need to pay for a domain to get a website.
With WA, you actually get 2 free websites as a free member.
I have read your post and sort of get the process. I read the “niche” blog so i get that but I don’t quite get what the content of the site you create should be. Is it a blog that you talk about things and then post links to these things or what? When thinking of a niche should it be something that there are related things to sell? Can you expand on exactly what is on the site first and how affiliate ads are segued onto it? Can i only post ads for things related to my site topic? etc etc… Do you get my question?
The content on your site would be on anything related to your niche. It is a blog where you can post links to “these things” as well. There’s almost a product for every niche, but I do suggest you pick something that you can expand on. For example, I have a site on “remote controlled cars”, so I talk about RCs and I have links and ads on them. You definitely want to post ads related to your niche my friend because you wouldn’t want to be on a dog site and have ads for RCs right? All these questions will be answered in the first training within WA, so you’ll get a better understanding of how everything is done man. I hope this helps!
The only thing that separates WA from empower network and all the others is the free version, but without the premium price your website is limited and you wouldn’t make any money without upselling to premium so I guess it is the same.
How much would you get if I signed up through your link
I definitely disagree with you on that one Michelle. I was (well still am) a member of the Empower Network and yes I went “all in”. What did I get? A bunch of marketing videos telling me how much I would lose out if I didn’t upgrade to the next level, which of course made me go all in. They teach you how to sell the same exact overpriced marketing videos that you just got for thousands of dollars. The minute I got to the end of the training (which took months!) I knew I was in something I didn’t want to be apart of.
I’m guessing EN is still around? I just can’t promote something that I know only teaches you how to promote what I just bought, especially when I know most people can’t afford it. I mean, who tells someone to max out their credit cards and borrow money from other people to go all in? That is some of the biggest bunch of BS I’ve ever had someone tell me to do, in order to get people to go all in.
How much would I get if someone joins through my link? Pennies, Michelle. Pennies. How much would I get if someone joined through my Empower Network Link? Thousands! Now why don’t I promote EN? Because there is nothing worth even $500 on that site. I promote Wealthy Affiliate because they teach you how to make money online and not by promoting them. Being that I’ve been scammed not only by EN, but by Neucopia (now shutdown) and many others.
Rather than investing thousands more, I went the cheapest route and signed up with WA. This little site is what taught me how to make money online without recruiting anyone, so yes, I owe it all to them and not the Empower Network. I also do MLM, but do you see me trying to promote it? No, because it’s not for everyone. This program right here will help anyone make money online and yes you get a free trial, so you can’t beat that.
In the end, if it’s EN that you want to promote because you’re trying to get back your loss, then go for it. I still wish you the best Michelle and I hope you do good with whatever it is that you do. Good luck and thanks for sharing!
first off I am not promoting EN I too was a member John Mroz was my sponsor and I still get Quality training from him, but that company was a joke. I was also a member of WA What you get for the free version is about what my 9 year old already knows about IM, and if you don’t think drawing people in with the free(limited) version with the idea that a large % will upsell(cause that is what it is) to the premium service then your as bad as some of the products you review.
I am not saying that you aren’t promoting a good product, WA is the lessor of hundreds of companies trying to build these online communities(for the betterment of the people) when the reality is Kyle & Carson To their credit are getting Paid.
One last thing nowhere in your (honest review) did I see any mention of Jaaxy which is a big component of helping the wandering, struggling email marketer. yet the minuet I joined I was pushed towards getting it, another free(but limited) resource with an upsell.
Be open In your review
So am I promoting a good product or not? You’re confusing yourself. There is no “up-sell” Michelle. It’s a free trial + membership, which will show you how things are done. If you don’t like it, you continue on with whatever it is that you are doing.
Kyle & Carson get paid? Well I’d hope so! Creating your own product with all the training and setting up of a site is no joke. So if you think they shouldn’t get paid, there’s something wrong.
Jaaxy is not an up-sell, but it is offered to help you IF you want. They don’t tell you that you NEED it if you want to make more money, like other programs do. There is a keyword tool that comes with the site that does the job, so why would you NEED Jaaxy? As an online marketer, you will need other tools and you will need to invest if you have other things in mind that you want to accomplish.
Why would I mention Jaaxy in my review if it is not needed? So what am I not open about? When you get help from me within WA, I tell everyone what they need to make money online and one of them is help, not some fancy tool.
Here’s the thing about owning a site (what is taught within WA). You get to control how and where you make money. Whether I’m telling you about a BBQ grill or scams online, it is all done the same way. I can tell you that product X is legit just to make money like all the other scam review sites, but why would I do that? EVERY SINGLE PRODUCT i review gives me the “opportunity” to make money, but I don’t. I promote LEGITIMATE products and that is it. WA just so happens to be at the top right now.
Do me a favor. Can you please show me something better? If you can do that, I’ll personally test it myself and if it beats this, I can promote it just for you. Other than that, I don’t get what you’re trying to say.
I am not trying to say anything, but I have read through a lot of your reviews and I am going to guess that a bulk of your online income comes from the WA commission program.
You can deny it and offer proof but I have been in IM for along time and your site is geared towards funneling people to WA. and that is fine but almost ALL of your reviews have pro’s and con’s except WA(there is nothing wrong with WA?)
I like WA but it has problems too and when I come across a site with so much WA love it takes me back to the early days of EN find at least one con about WA and I will continue to visit your site(I may even buy a product through one of your links)
I know it sounds super biased, but the only problem I can think of, is that it can be overwhelming. This is what I experienced in the beginning, but now I know how to do everything so easily. For example, when I first started, I had to put a note on my calendar to “learn wordpress”. I look back at that note and I am truly amazed at how much I’ve grown as an online marketer.
Just like with anything else though, you have to learn it, even if it’s a new job. But once you learn how online marketing really works, it’s a skill that you can use with many other aspects of the online marketing world. The best part about all this, is that you can scale your business and make more money, not like a regular job that gives you a $1 raise every year.
Build out a site for 2 years and I can promise you that you will make more money online than you do at your current job. Most people don’t understand how all this works, but if you take the time to learn everything, the skills are priceless.
I would like to help you Michelle, whether you click on a link of mine or not, as I do with other members on WA. Email me and I can help you if you’d like. Pride is nothing and I’m willing to help. What biz are you currently involved with, if you don’t mind me asking?
Hi John it’s Tony again did you ever find out what the problem was?
Hey Tony, can you send me an email with your First name, last name, and email address?
Hi I tried to sign up but it keeps saying I have a wealthy affiliate account and I don’t so when I put in my email or any email that I’ve ever had it says account can’t be found. What’s the problem?
I have heard of this problem before, so let me look into this for you. What is your email addy? If you want you can email me your info if you’re not comfortable sharing it here.
Same problem here trying to create account. Says I already have one.
Email me your details Kristina and I’ll have it sorted out for you. Send it to firstname.lastname@example.org
Choosing a niche is the hard part for me. I don’t know what would be a good choice. That’s the part I need help with.
There is great training in WA about choosing a niche. I too had a problem with that, but with the way things are taught, made me see exactly how it is really done. Here’s the training that will give you a better understanding on how to choose your niche.
Click here to see the training on how to choose your niche
great article. Seem it will work as real money. Quick question? Then how WA earn from us? WA teach us to bring products in our niche to promote in our website, isnt it?
WA has its premium membership JC, which is how they will get paid. The training focuses on promoting other products, which is how you will make your money. You pay for the lessons, they teach you how to make money.
So do we have to buy the course from them? Or just premium membership?
