In this post I’m going to share my experience with Wealthy Affiliate so far and do my best to thoroughly review this platform. If you’re here chances are you were doing some research on WA and trying to figure out if it’s legit or just another scam. Well, that’s what this review is all about. This is a Wealthy Affiliate review from an average Joe.
And what I mean by ‘average Joe’ is, I’m just going to be real with you. I was working two jobs. Both of them were just real physical, hard work and I was killing myself to make a living. I started buying scratch-offs from convenience stores and even downloaded a couple of apps for my phone where I could enter contests and possibly get lucky.
I remember thinking, “I just have to catch a break so I won’t have to kill myself working two jobs.” And one day on my lunch break, I was just poking around on Google, and I stumbled upon this dude Eddy’s website and he was talking about Online Affiliate Marketing.
Long story short, Eddy became my personal coach and I became a member of Wealthy Affiliate. So sit on back and dig into this review so you will know what to expect before signing up for your free membership.

Choose Your Destiny
There’s basically two roads you can take after joining Wealthy Affiliate:
- Online Entrepaneur Certification (OEC)
- Affiliate Bootcamp
The Online Entrepreneur Certification is a 5 phase (50 lesson) series of courses that shows you how to take any niche and turn it into a profitable online business through affiliate marketing.
That is what originally attracted me to Wealthy Affiliate. Well, first I saw that it was free to join and I didn’t have to give them my credit card number or anything like that. And second, I could take my love of the outdoors and they would show me how to turn it into an online business where I could promote products through reviews and earn a commission.
For instance I took the outdoor camping gear niche and made an affiliate website called All About Outdoor Gear. I’m definitely no computer expert. I just followed the OEC training to the best of my ability and made the thing.
I’m currently taking a break from that website and focusing on the Affiliate Bootcamp Training. It’s similar to the OEC training. The difference is your niche will be affiliate marketing and you can promote Wealthy Affiliate or any other Make Money Online program that you choose really.
I’m only on the first of 7 training phases and I already have my website up and running and it just got indexed by Google. Check it out here- Earnandlearnonline.com.
There are 70 lessons in the Affiliate Bootcamp Training. I know that sounds like a ton of training but it’s really not that bad. Kyle knows how to explain everything to where it’s so easy to understand. There’s a video included in just about every lesson. So that helps.
One of my favorite tools in WA is the search bar at the top of the screen. If you ever have a question just click the search bar and start typing. As you type, past training and blogs that contain your search words will pop up and you will usually find the answer to your question after reading through the content. But if you don’t find the answer, you can always post a question to the community with the search bar.
Wealthy Affiliate = One Helpful Community
After I created my account, I was blown away by all the members leaving me comments on my profile and personal messages in my inbox. They were just introducing themselves and offering to answer any questions that I may have. And they weren’t kidding either! I can put a question out there to the whole community using the search bar or in the online chat, and I usually get an answer within minutes.
And most of the members are quite knowledgeable and more than willing to help. WA truly is a community of like-minded individuals with 1 ultimate goal in common and that is financial freedom. The freedom to make steady income yet be your own boss. Freedom to travel and spend more time with family. That’s my goal anyway.
I’ve read several posts from successful members talking about how they travel to different parts of the world and as long as they have there laptop and an internet connection, they can work on there business and earn money while vacationing. Sign me up for that!! Lol
Here’s a quick video that I made using the training inside WA! It’s just a quick look inside the Wealthy Affiliate Dashboard. And it’s my first video that I’ve ever made so please go easy on me! Lol
Content Creation Can Be Fun
I’ve never really cared for writing. Honestly that’s my least favorite part about this business. And that’s when WA training comes in handy. The Site Content writing/editing part of the WA platform is quite helpful. It provides you with writing templates to help you construct your content. But at the same time it allows you to be creative and original with your writing.
And this is why they say it’s important to pick a niche that interests you. You are going to be writing a lot! But it doesn’t have to be so glum. Before I even found out about WA, I was researching ways to make money online. And now that I’ve found Wealthy Affiliate I’m interested in learning more about the affiliate marketing business. And I’m willing to put in the work to be successful.
And the same goes for my outdoor gear site. My wife and I love camping and I actually do enjoy looking at camping gear online or at Academy, etc. So I chose that as my niche. It’s something that I’m interested in and I don’t mind doing the research or writing the content for my posts.
They say if you love what you do for a living, you will never have to work a day in your life. ==> Join Wealthy Affiliate for Free Today and Learn How To Start A Profitable Online Business!!
So to answer the question “Is Wealthy Affiliate for real or is it just another ‘Get rich overnight’ scam?” I would say no, it is not a scam. You can find success in this business and Wealthy Affiliate has all the training and tools that you will need to be successful. You just have to be open-minded and teachable. And when you learn how to use the tools you have to take some action.
It’s free to join and super easy to set up your account. After you join and set up your Free Starter Account, if you upgrade to a Premium Membership in the first 7 days, WA gives you a 59% discount on your first monthly payment making it $19 for your first month. Then it’s $49/month after that. But the resources and extras that you get as a Premium Member are worth way more than $49/month so it’s a steal!
You will also get regular check-ins from Kyle, one of the owners and founders of Wealthy Affiliate! And he will actually respond to any questions you may have and help you along the way. You’re not going to get that service anywhere else, especially for free! Just saying…
You really have nothing to lose.
