Before finding Wealthy Affiliate (WA) I didn't have any clue about making money online with affiliate marketing. I thought that only some "tech gurus" can build websites or earn a living by blogging. I saw some advertisements on the Internet about people who were making big money online but I thought most of them were scams.
Things have changed since I found Wealthy Affiliate. I have got to know personally tens of regular people who are making living online. Most of them joined WA without any prior knowledge or experience but now they are making a full-time income and some people make +$10,000/month. At the moment I am also a full-time online marketer and will probably never go back to 9 to 5 life again.
In this comprehensive review I will explain what is Wealthy Affiliate and how it will help you to make money online. I will also give my personal tips how you can get the most out of their tools to maximize your earning potential.
Wealthy Affiliate is an "online business university" that has helped thousands of people all around the world to make money online.
They provide a step-by-step training that is suitable also for complete beginners. I know stay-at-home moms, retired people, college students, 9 to 5 workers and people from other walks of life who went through Wealthy Affiliate training and now earn a full-time income online.
Wealthy Affiliate provides also several tools for aspiring online entrepreneurs.
Here are things that people especially like about the Wealthy Affiliate Community:
Wealthy Affiliate is full of success stories. Small and big ones. For some people success means creating their first website or making the first sale online. For other ones it's reaching $5,000/month or $10,000/month-mark with their online business.
I would like to share with you some Wealthy Affiliate success stories. First, I want to remind you that two person''s path is not similar. Some people make $10,000/month after 2 years while another guy makes $5,000/month after 3 years. There are many factors that affect on results but the biggest factor is the person himself. The harder you work, the luckier you get.
Many people come to me and ask, "How are you doing money with Wealthy Affiliate? How does the process work?" There are actually 100's of ways how you can make money online. Let me explain you one basic way in a nutshell.
That's a simple 4-step formula how you will make money online and I can say from my own and other people's experience that it WORKS. Actually, it works better than I thought before.
You choose an interest which can be literally anything between the Earth and sky. Maybe you like helping people with skin care, football, basketball, parenting, or whatever you want. A wonderful thing is that you can do whatever is your passion. There are literally MILLIONS of potential directions that you can take and still make a full-time income online. If you can't decide which subject you want, you can always follow Affiliate Bootcamp training and create a full-time income there as well.
In the training you will learn how to build a website. Then people come to visit your website through search engines like Google and social medias like Facebook. In the end, you''ll earn commissions from those visitors. Sometimes I make +$200 for one visitor when he goes and buys products that I have promoted. So, you don't need to have any own products to make a living online because you can make money through ads or by recommending other people's products.
I want to say that don't worry whether you have any experience of making money online or not. I didn't have experience when I started. Everybody who is successful has started from point 0. Before I thought that only some gurus can create websites but nowadays I can build a website in 30 seconds with skills that I learned in WA.
One Wealthy Affiliate -member called Marcus used computer for the first time in 2005. Two years after that he joined WA. He learned all the skills and he has made a living for himself and for his family for several years.
In my opinion, the best part of Wealthy Affiliate is a step-by-step online business training. It's created by Kyle and Carson who are founders of WA. They have both around 15 years experience of online marketing and nowadays they are already multimillionaires. Despite their huge success, they are ultimately helpful and willing to help you to succeed.
You will also get their personal support inside the community. Tell me another online business training where the founder gives you personal support. It's very rare because often founders are living in their own ivory tower. That makes WA unique.
There are two primary step-by-step training sections in WA. Online Entrepreneur Certification (OEC) and Affiliate Bootcamp. OEC consists of 5 different modules where you will learn to turn your passion into a thriving online business. In Affiliate Bootcamp you will learn to make money online even though you wouldn't have your own idea (niche). Let's take a closer look at those trainings.
In this training, you can choose your passion. You will create an online business around something that you love to do. Whether it’s tennis or football, cars or babies, hiking or decorating your house. Anything is possible. There are more than 3,7 billion people online, and the number is growing each year.
Kyle will go through the process of building your own online business. You will learn all these skills in the first 10 FREE interactive video lessons:
There are five levels in Online Entrepreneur Certification -course. The levels are:
1.Online Entrepreneur Certification – Getting Started (Level 1)
2.Building Your Own Traffic Producing Website (Level 2)
3.Online Entrepreneur Certification – Making Money! (Level 3)
4.Online Entrepreneur Certification – Mastering Social Engagement (Level 4)
5.The Business of Content – Achieving Maximum Success Through Content Creation
In each level, you will learn new skills to make your online business thrive. This training is vital and will lay a good foundation for your business. It will teach important principles, and concrete action steps that you need to take. Remember, you can start this course for entirely free.
With Affiliate Bootcamp you will learn to make money online even though you don't have any idea what kind of products you would like to promote.
In my opinion, Affiliate Bootcamp is a bit more comprehensive than Online Entrepreneur Certification. It covers more or less the same subjects, but it also teaches you how to use paid marketing and other interesting things.
In Affiliate Bootcamp you will learn to make your very own website around “Making Money Online” -subject. You will earn commissions from Wealthy Affiliate and from other big companies. Sometimes I wake up and see that I earned $175-commission while I was sleeping. Thanks to Affiliate Bootcamp it's possible for me.
After lessons you will have tasks to accomplish. I think the most effective way of learning is to put your new knowledge right away into action. Then you will learn it faster and make progress with your online business at the same time.
In my opinion, the live training by Jay Neill is one of the best and most valuable parts of Wealthy Affiliate. This guy has around 15 years of experience of digital marketing/making money online and every week he shares his knowledge to us. He did, for example, once a case study where he created a niche website in 4 webinars. That website has made him thousands of dollars with a minimal effort.
In addition, his training covers many other subjects:
Then in the end of the webinar he has a Q & A (Questions and Answers) -session where you and other members can ask questions from Jay and he gives you his best answers. Jay's webinars take place every week at 5 PM, PST.
You can always go through his old webinars that afterwards if you couldn't watch it live. They are full of pearls of wisdom and I often watch his old webinars to learn new skills. His webinars had a big impact on me and encouraged me to start a YouTube channel, for example. That is making me good money at the moment so I can give thanks to Jay and his webinars.
When I started in Wealthy Affiliate, I naturally asked lots of questions. I wanted to master this "make money online" thing. I wanted to succeed fast! I highly recommend that you also ask lots of questions within the community but there is one pro tip that I would like to share with you. I made one crucial mistake in the beginning of my online business career.
Wealthy Affiliate is a community of more than 850,000 people from all around the world and from all walks of life. Some of them are just starting out in WA and don't have any experience of making money online. Other ones have many years of experience and they are already earning +$10,000 every month. You can imagine that there are many kinds of people.
I made a mistake that I listened to advice from everybody, also from complete beginners. All people in WA were willing to help me but some of them were other beginners like I was. They didn't have so good advice like those who had already succeeded. That's why I recommend you to ask more questions from those who are already earning good money online. Everyone has an opinion in this world but I recommend listening those who have the best advice.
I will contact you personally when you join Wealthy Affiliate. I am available for all of your questions and I'll share you many tips along the way. I want to help you succeed. It's exciting to see the process when somebody starts earning money online.
Ask lots of questions. The more you ask, the more you will learn. My biggest breakthroughs with my online business happened when I got personal tips from more experienced online entrepreneurs.

Can you imagine? You will get the access to all of this immediately when you join Wealthy Affiliate for free. To be honest, I recommend that you start out for free to see around first. I started with a free membership myself and later on I bought a premium membership when I was committed to earn money online.
Wealthy Affiliate Premium. is the true “all inclusive” platform if you are even remotely interested in making money online. You can really make a full-time income with all tools that you get with the premium membership. You don't need to buy any "online business guru" books or fall into online scams. I hear the following sentence over and over again from people who have joined WA:
"I spent money on many systems but they didn't help me to make money online. After finding WA, I haven't needed to look for other systems because here is all I need to make a living online."
Wealthy Affiliate has a very powerful and fast website builder. You can literally create new websites in 30 seconds. In addition, they provide a world-class domain hosting for all websites. You can see in the picture below the easy process of creating a website through Wealthy Affiliate. There are only 4 simple steps. There is a tutorial how you can do it if you don't have any prior experience.
Wealthy Affiliate provides also a domain hosting up to 25 websites. I have created several websites through WA and they have always worked like a charm. Always when I have contacted their website support, I received an answer in a few minutes.
Premium membership includes also many bonuses for your website: SiteSpeed makes your website faster and helps it to rank higher in Google. SiteSSL keeps your visitor data and website safe. Google has also announced that websites with SSL get ranked higher in their search results. In addition, Wealthy Affiliate provides SiteProctect tool which blocks automated comments and spam from your website.
All of these website tools including domain hosting could normally cost even $50/month alone. In Wealthy Affiliate all tools are included in a premium membership which costs only $29 per month with a yearly membership. Imagine how much money it saves.
Wealthy Affiliate is everything you need to make a living online. Their step-by-step training walks you through the process hand by hand. You will always get support from experienced online entrepreneurs if you need it. WA has also numerous tools to help you to earn money online that would cost a fortune if you would buy them individually from other providers.
