Is it just another scam?
After test driving this product, here’s my review about Wealthy Affiliate Program.
Price: Free or USD$49 for Premium Membership
Owners: Kyle & Carson
Wealthy Affiliate (WA) is best described as an online community and a digital content and hosting platform for online affiliate marketers. It was founded in 2005 by Kyle & Carson, and now twelve years on has over 600,000 members.
WA is a work from home business (or any location for that matter), ideal for the digital nomad of today, who is no longer constrained by four walls and a desk. You can access it, and the websites you build within the platform anytime, and from anywhere.
I originally stumbled across WA when I was researching content management systems and website hosting for a boutique accommodation business. As you’re not restricted to just promoting affiliate products through this platform – you can literally use the SiteRubix platform to build your website on any topic what so ever.
- Absolutely FREE to join – unlimited free membership
- 2 FREE Websites hosted under the free membership (up to 50 websites included under premium)
- Extremely user friendly website
- Excellent and comprehensive training from beginner to advanced levels
- No credit card required on sign up – so no risk of unwanted payments being deducted from your card
- State of the art website builder in SiteRubix, which utilizes WordPress
- Hundreds of free templates to build your website
- Includes SEO tools, Spam Blockers, Image Optimisation, SiteSSL, along with daily backups of all your hard work.
- Premium includes unlimited hosting of email accounts for your domains
- It’s super easy to transfer existing websites/email accounts across to WA.
- Video and interactive training
- Live chat & membership discussion.
- The WA community foster the values of collaboration and paying it forward – so there’s always someone ready to help
- WA is not a get rich quick scheme. If that’s what you’re looking for, then this is not it.
- WA gives you the platform & resources to start your online business, but unless you put the hard work in, you will not achieve online success. Your results and what you get out of WA is completely up to you. Here’s a blog post from a Wealthy Affiliate member which answers that question very well – How long until you make money online? Short answer; it depends.
- The training and tools offered under the FREE membership is enough to get you up and running, but you’ll be wanting to upgrade to Premium as soon as feasible, to get the full value out of the product. Again, this depends on what your online goals are – and the free membership may be enough.
- WA have banned free membership from countries where online scams, and hacking are prevalent. That includes;
- Nigeria (Recently WA completely banned membership from people in Nigeria)
Whose it for?
In my opinion, this is an excellent product for beginners right through to advanced users.
The training is broken down into levels; from targeting complete newcomers to getting an online business up and running, to more advanced training on very specific topics like keywords, content, conversions, PPC campaigns and brand through media.
Advanced users will easily see the value offered through the SiteRubix website and email hosting. For example, if you’re planning to build and host multiple websites for you and/or your clients, this represents a massive saving at less than $1 hosting per month per website. You only need one or two clients to recoup your costs.
Training / Tools Overview
- Step by step training on a huge range of topics, from finding your way around their website, to choosing a domain name, creating your own website, content writing, to generating traffic and monetizing your site.
- Training content is continuously being updated and refined by the online community, you can search on virtually any topic and the answer will be at your fingertips.
You can access technical support in a number of ways;
- through live chat with other members
- discussion boards
- Site Support for SiteRubix – response times are typically within 2 hours
- direct message to Kyle or Carson – their response times are typically within 24 hours
There are two levels of membership, a completely free option (for unlimited time) and a paid version for Premium membership at USD$49 per month, which unlocks the full functionality of the site.
You do NOT need a credit card to join up, as the free membership is not simply a ‘free trial’, it’s free for an indefinite period.
Overall Ranking: 9/10
Conclusion: Wealthy Affiliate is by far the most interactive, helpful and thorough Affiliate Marketing platform online today.
If you want to turbo propel your online writing business and have access to all the tools you’ll ever need to succeed, Wealthy Affiliate is going to be hard to beat.
