Now that you’re on this page, you probably ran into this Wealthy Affiliate University that says they can teach you how to make money online free. A lot of questions come into mind, and after you’ve read my review about it, you’ll have a clear overview on what Wealthy Affiliate REALLY is. A question you’re probably stuck with is: Should I join Wealthy Affiliate ?

I’m a skeptical guy, and that is why you’re going to like my review on Wealthy Affiliate University. I’m just going to keep it real, and show you why WA might not be so interesting for you. I signed up for a membership, so I’ve seen what’s in Wealthy Affiliate. I was looking for how to make money from home for free

Before I joined Wealthy Affiliate to see what it was all about, I was searching for easy ways to earn more money, best ways to make money online, and how to make money from home for free. I also ran into WA, so I decided to sign up and see what it’s all about. I didn’t trust it because there are so many scams online, I mean seriously? People who have no life and want to earn easy money by betraying people and make them pay for stuff they don’t get. Even though they make everything seem so interesting. They say you can start for 0$ “only today!” , yeah right. I’ll remove my cookies, check it out again a week later and get that “only today!”-warning again.

That was the deal with Wealthy Affiliate also, I mean they said I could start for 0$ and get so many help already? So I though by myself, hey, it’s 2 PM, why not? And we all know the saying “Nothing good ever happens after 2 PM”, right? Well.. I don’t agree..

What Is Wealthy Affiliate Really?


The Wealthy Affiliate University can be explained by the name of the company. It’s a University that can show you how to become a wealthy affiliate. (Don’t know what an Affiliate is? Click here) And they say that you can start totally free and you can stay using it for free. I can honestly say that it’s completely true. It really is possible, and I’m living proof. I’ll also show you some screen-captures from inside the WA-community so you can see what it’s all about without having to join.

Pros and Cons of Wealthy Affiliate


The bad:

  • The amount of useful information might be overwhelming

The good:

  • Very structured
  • Tons of trainings, courses, tutorials, and Classrooms
  • A great community that helps one and other
  • Live chat room where you can ask your questions
  • Website Support 24/7
  • Free membership is really free =>Including 2 Free Beautifully designed websites
  • Paying membership is not expensive, you get a lot back!
  • Very Strict Spam-Free Environment
  • Very good for beginners and advanced people
  • Access to Industry Experts and Millionaires
  • Completely FREE to Get Started! (With no catches)

The last one might be a very important one, because you get all this above for nothing.. And that’s just amazing, I honestly have never seen such a waterproof platform where everything is integrated and easy to find. And all of that for 0$.. That amazes me. There is nothing like Wealthy Affiliate in the Industry, and you need to check that out for yourself. YOU WILL LOVE YOUR EXPERIENCE AT WEALTHY AFFILIATE.  If you don’t, you can come back here and leave me a nasty comment.


One step at a time 

That is My advice for You if you get overwhelmed and think “it’s all too much” for you. That’s the key to overcome that feeling.. Just do everything one step at a time, you can start with one training per time you come online. The training video’s in the courses take usually not more than 20 minutes. And after every training there are some tasks for you to do like you can see in the picture.

This picture above is just a cut out. But as you can see, The Wealthy Affiliate Community is all about helping each other achieve success. Underneath the tasks you can see the “Top Helpers in This Lesson”, and I think the sentence speaks for its self. And if that isn’t sufficient you can click on the “Ask a question” button, how great is that? I mean, I’ve never seen such an online platform like this one. They don’t even help you this much at school.


Who Is It For


Wealthy Affiliate is good for beginners/intermediate/advanced people in the industry. So actually anyone can start. I myself find it also very good for people who are totally newbies in the industry because I was a newbie once, and I’m still learning! I find it also very good for people with a disability, because they can work from home as an Affiliate Marketeer and you have the ability to make big money with it too. A Friend of mine showed me his income of April and may 2016 (it was up to $4000 per month) and that’s not the maximum you can make. This is where I Love to say: The sky is the limit!

So in one word: EVERYONE, can benefit from Wealthy Affiliate. All levels of expertise, any age, and from any country. As long as you have an internet connection. And it’s user-friendly for iPad’s and mobile phones too.

Even the website you make will be automatically converted for tablets and mobile phones of any size, how great is that!?

Training/Tools Overview


And I am going to give you an inside look on those great trainings and very useful tools you can find. You basically have every training and every tool you need to make your website profitable and professional.

The Training is very structured and organized and I love it! It’s not like you have information unorganised all over the place. So it’s not like you get tasks that only skilled people could do.. They start with Course 1 Level 1 for the beginner and there are 5 courses. Take a look:


What You Get

As you can see, they provide very interesting information and in a very structured way. That’s way better than getting all the kinds of needed info from multiple website. And you might not get al the info you need either. This is only an example on one of the trainings. You also have tutorials and classes. Here are all the different types of trainings you can get:

  • Live Weekly Training Classes
  • Question and Answer Periods
  • Organized Classrooms (on specific topics)
  • Interactive Discussions
  • Video Training, Tutorials
  • Task Based Courses

And all of that along with a great community that can help you out when in need.

The tools that you can use inside WA are many. Just like you can see on the picture. I love the keyword tool, because that is the tool you use to look up your keywords for Search Engine Optimalisation (SEO), or in other words “The tool to get your website ranked on the first pages of Google.” And you can save any keyword to your own keyword lists along with the information that goes with it.





As I’ve mentioned before, the support at Wealthy Affiliate is amazing. For starters, you can already find most of the information you need in the trainings and tutorials and courses.

If that’s not enough, then it doesn’t stop there AT ALL. You have the Live Chat (Left in the picture below) where you can ask your question to the community. People from all over the world are online at all times since everyone lives in another time zone. If they don’t know how to help you you can type in your question  in the search bar on the top of the page. Most of the questions have already been asked and answered, and they are saved in the community for others to access.

And if that’s not enough, you can ask your question to the 2 founders of Wealthy Affiliate! Kyle and Carson! You get an answer soon enough! Take a look:


And this is just one of the many question’s I’ve asked. Al the answers were very helpful!

The Pricing Plans at Wealthy Affiliate


Wealthy Affiliate has 2 types of membership price points:

Starter Membership, $0 (Join here)
Premium Membership, $49 per month / $359 per year (Join here)

A membership, for Zéro dollars.. is it really free? This is where it gets interesting. Its not only free, but you get access to almost all the extra’s the first 7 days! There are many extra’s within the Premium Membership, and you get to check them out without having to pay for them. How great is that? That way you can see what you get in a Premium Membership and see how it can benefit you without spending a penny. If you think that you won’t need the extra’s yet or anymore after the first week you can just continue completely Free!

Then you have the premium membership witch is $49 per month.. If you join through this link you’ll get a discount for the first month! So you can get a premium membership for only $19! You can read here why I went Premium. And this for a platform where you can find EVERYTHING you need to build your success online. I look at it as a small investment for your OWN Business, I mean; you don’t need to rent a place, you don’t need to buy products to sell them and you don’t need to worry about the after sales. You just Choose an interest => Build a Website => Attract visitors => And make the $$$

Work The Way YOU Want







  1. Indeed, being a Wealthy Affiliate premium member for a month plus, I have gained some knowledge and acted upon it. And I have surprisingly already made my first referral! Although it is a small achievement, it is an important cornerstone in paving my way to success. With dedicated effort and time, you would soon get to see the results!

    • That’s for a month plus only and look how excited you are. I’ve been there now for over a year and it only gets better! Kyle and Carson keep improving the online platform to make things better for us.

      I look at it as a big achievement.. Because that one referral makes you want more which will jack up your motivation!

  2. Hello, great review on wealthy affiliate, I would encourage anyone to become a part of this community because of those who want to start and online business with good results then wealthy affiliate is the place to be. This is a proven system that really works .

    • Hey Norman!

      Thanks, I found that it was important to show the people how great this community is. It sure does work and the best thing of all is, that you have all the tools and knowledge in one platform. Everything is very well structured. There’s no need to consult other websites for information. You just need to Get Started and keep going!

  3. Hi, I am a bit skeptic just like you, so much that I managed to avoid all the scams until I found Wealthy Affiliate. I have been a member now for three weeks and I already joined Premium! Because I can see that I gain huge benefits from it, not only from the up to date training, but also from the uplifting and encouraging community. And the fact that the website hosting of up to 50 websites is included in the membership is amazing! (while I was paying almost as much for hosting only one! And everytime I needed something it had an additional price tag.)

    I Definitely recommend it.

    • How great is that!? I was also able to avoid all the scams online too, before joining WA. Great to see you move forward, keep up the good work! That’s right, 50 websites! And you can host them all at Wealthy Affiliate without a problem. If you need a hand with anything, just send me a message inside WA or leave me a comment.

      Keep up the good work!



  4. Kristen

    Such a great review. Wealthy Affiliate is a great resource. I know I have already learned a lot in my short time as a member.


    • And that’s just the beginning!

      Stick to the training and make sure you do the tasks like described at the end of every lesson.

      Keep up the good work!



  5. Minhaj

    I used to hate click bait headlines, but I realise in marketing they are useful to get your point across.
    I agree with everything you state about Wealthy Affiliate, there are a lot of things that separate Wealthy Affiliate from other online training programmes.
    A couple of things that I really appreciate about Wealthy Affiliate that distinguishes itself from the rest is that their owners are always improving the platform and their premium membership is kept very affordable.
    No where else will you get this level of support and training at such a price.

    • That’s what keeps it so interesting Minhaj, The fact that they keep improving the platform and making it better. They’ve been busy since 2002 to make things easier for us and they’re still at it!

      Exactly, and no where else will you get what they offer for free either. So much information, trainings, tutorials, etc. All for free and it stays that way. It’s no 24 hours try out or something.

      Keep up the good work Minhaj!


  6. Stephen

    Hello friend,

    This is indeed a very informative review on Wealthy Affiliate and I can say you have covered all that a person needs to before joining this great community.

    I really like the fact that You can join Wealthy Affiliate for free without having to pay anything at all and this alone makes them legitimate.

    Besides that, the many step by step video training they offer is one aspect that makes their platform so wonderful. Not to mention the live chat and the community members who are always ready to help you anytime you need their help.

    I will always continue to recommend Wealthy Affiliate for all who are interested in doing online business.

    • That is so true Stephen. I’ve never looked at it that way, the fact that you can join for free and that it can stay that way is amazing, I haven’t seen that anywhere else!

      I’m still following the lessons to gain more knowledge so that my business can grow. I will also always recommend Wealthy Affiliate for all who are interested in doing business. And Online Business is now the way to go, almost everything happens online nowadays.

  7. Wealthy Affiliate is indeed not a scam! I am a member of WA since a few months ago and I have learned so much ore than I expected to.

    WA’s has a great way of giving tutorials and lessons. Like you said, at the end of each lesson you get tasks. That’s why Wealthy Affiliate has created some great online marketers. They were not just sitting back and relaxing. They were taking action on what they learn (i.e. doing those tasks).

    It’s not a get rich quick scheme for those who expect to make a full time income in a day. It takes some work and dedication but in the end, you get what you’ve worked for. WA is the best training program there is on the internet.

    Thumbs up!

    • That’s a very important factor you mention there Ilias. It’s indeed necessary to take action on what you learn. If you don’t bring any food to your mouth then you won’t eat. And wealthy affiliate is not something for pro’s. I started out as a total newbie not even knowing what affiliate marketing is. And now here I am as an affiliate marketer, explaining it on my very own website!

      Professionals who wish to make more money, or who would like to skyrocket their income can absolutely join Wealthy Affiliate too. That’s another thing that is so great about WA. It’s just for everybody who is looking for online success.

  8. Wow Man! Well constructed post.
    I really admire the way you started this review and took it till end. From a newbies’ point of view, you have made it very convenient to take an informed decision.
    I completely agree with your advice about taking one step at a time. We must realize, Wealthy Affiliate is a university and has tons of learning materials. Things become overwhelming at times, so it is wise not to stray from the path.
    You have done a great job.
    All the best.

  9. Very nice post and review on WA. Great use of Links, Pictures, and content. The overall website is pretty nice. If I had any criticism it would be just a couple of typos and some of the links could be directed elsewhere, but all-in-all, a great site that is well thought out.
