Why a Review?


This review is about sharing with you the little steps I am
taking and the little successes that I am beginning to
achieve with wealthy Affiliates.

These little successes will, I strongly believe be the roots
of the bigger successes that are sure to come a little
further down the line.

At the moment I am on phase 2 of the training and little results are beginning to trickle in which I shall show you a bit later on.
Now that we got that out-of-the-way lets get down to the Nitty gritty.

What is wealthy Affiliate?

Wealthy Affiliates was co-founded in 2005 by Kyle and Carson. It is also called Wealthy Affiliate University and WA. It is reputed to have one of the best and most exciting Affiliate training programs in the world.

One of the first things you learn it is not a get-rich-quick scheme. It is a get rich scheme but you need to put in the required effort in both the training and applying your newly learned skills.

How Much Does Wealthy Affiliates Cost?

It is free to join and set up your website but there is an upgrade to either monthly premium and yearly premium.
You also get the first month for $19 which is a big discount of over 50%. The yearly plan costs $359.

Wealthy AffiliateTraining

The training at wealthy affiliates is about getting organic traffic to your website. Organic traffic is traffic which has arrived st your website by initiating a search engine query and clicking through to your site. This is the best type of traffic. They convert better because their search query has been matched to your website which makes them targeted traffic.

Before I joined Wealthy affiliates I had never had a website indexed by google or on the first pages of either yahoo or Bing.
With Wealthy Affiliates my blog has been indexed by google but has not yet appeared in the first 5 pages. It also appears on the first page of yahoo and Bing for a particular keyword.

Don’t take my word for it. have a look at the proof below.

site ranks
The step by step training that I am following has made this possible. This has been achieved in a month of following the training process.

Click to Get Started.

The point here is that to get your site ranked and to get organic traffic you have to provide content on your website that is engaging and helpful.

Do this on a regular basis.

The results of my sticking to this rule can be seen in the screenshot below;

You can see from the image that I am at writing level 4 having published a total of 9 articles containing 6,085 words.

The Negatives

There are a couple of things.

The first is that there is so much training and information that it can be a bit overwhelming at times. But as time goes by and with the right amount of work you begin to make sense and sort out all the information and training. Hey when you feel stuck ask for help from the community and you will get it.

The second is you will have to come to terms with the fact that you are going to have to do some writing and content creation. When this becomes too much of a hassle you can always outsource some writing while you concentrate on the other important parts of the business.

  1. Hi Robert, I enjoyed reading your review of Wealthy Affiliate. I find it amazing that this program is free to join. I have joined quite a few affiliate programs over the past 10 years and each one cost quite an amount to join. Some were more expensive than others, but none of them were free.

    I see you give Wealthy Affiliate a good rating at 90 per cent.

    All the best.


  2. Hi Robert,
    This is a very clever and well written article. It gives an honest perspective with accurate details. I think people coming to your site who are looking up scams and have come across wealthy affiliates would feel more comfortable and trust what you’re sharing. I do think that perhaps there is one part I would consider rewording, or maybe think of as a possible upsell that I think WA does, and that’s possibly having created Jaxxy, maybe it would be considered an upsell in that it’s a product of WA owners? Also, WA offers buy your own website domains, and I believe own that as they provide that as an additional product. So I’m not sure if this would be considered an upsell, but something to think others might think of an upsell if they sign up and then realize there is an extra cost in buying one’s own domain. I don’t have a problem with it, as it’s very reasonably priced, and has better benefits than the ones outside of WA, but its something to consider. I hope this makes sense. I’m not sure how you would consider wording this, perhaps include it as an additional option, with no pressure to purchase?
    Additionally, in the following sentence, I would change it to a capital H, ‘have a look at the proof below.’
    I also like that you’ve included a free offer for prospective affiliates. I also like that you’ve include those two negatives, as it makes it come across as real, but for some this wouldn’t be a negative, which is something the reader would consider in their decision.

    1. Hi Kathleen,
      Thanks for your comments. I understand what you mean about the negatives. But I actually could not think of anything harsher to say 🙂

  3. Hi Robert,
    What a great review you have here of Wealthy Affiliate. I have been more than happy being part of this program as you are too. They truly over deliver with the training and help and like you say, can be truly over whelming. Better more than enough than not! Good article Robert and this will show others the true value for such little cost.
    Cheers, Sharon
