I know exactly how that feels like, and no I don’t mean to say it to make you feel good or anything, I am saying it because I was hurt by it, and a little angered to be honest.
But then I found out about Wealthy Affiliate and this happened, this will be the only wealthy affiliate review you need in order to understand everything there is to know about Wealthy Affiliate and affiliate marketing in general.
Is it a scam? Is it worth it? Keep on reading.
Also, this review will be the most unbiased one about Wealthy Affiliate that you can find on the internet today. I will tell you why very shortly. Keep reading.
Nowadays you can find hundreds of Wealthy Affiliate reviews or any reviews saying they are no B.S and are 100% honest, then they will shower you with unrealistic thoughts, they are simply manipulating you to think it is the best there is for whatever reason.
I, however will show you exactly where I am at within Wealthy Affiliate (My progress) and what I was doing before that, just to give you a complete look from the inside.
Nonetheless, here you are and consider yourself fortunate, because I am about to show you a Whole New World (Aladdin reference)..Just kidding, but for real though, this will be an eye-opener for you.
NOTE: This will be a very long post, make use of the table of content.
I have tried almost twenty programs and courses, wouldn’t be surprised if it is close to thirty. Some were expensive and could go anywhere between 20 to 1000 bucks and above, of course there were some free courses here and there, too.
But the free courses are either ready to hit you with an upsell that may or may not cost you ten times as much or the information you get is very vague and inadequate.
Before I journey you into my personal story with Wealthy Affiliate, and the reason I think my review is the most unbiased one out there, here’s an overview first.

My Story With Wealthy Affiliate
Before I go in depth about Wealthy Affiliate, before I tell you about those amazing success stories and features Wealthy Affiliate has to offer, I am going to give you an insight to my struggle with affiliate marketing and my progress thus far with it.
My Name Is Kayin Zeng and I started affiliate marketing in Mei 2018 with no knowledge about the internet or marketing whatsoever, like 99.9% of you who are interested in affiliate marketing, and that’s alright, just hear me out.
The start of my journey is nothing out of the particular, in fact it is the same as most of you, that is why I know I can relate to you and many like you.
If you expect to see some mind blowing story about how a guy went from broke to 50K a month, let me tell you this beforehand, that won’t happen here and you are at the wrong place and you should look somewhere else.
Affiliate marketing is not a get-rich-quick scheme or a way to earn money without doing anything, what affiliate marketing is, is that it can help you create a passive income and live the paradise lifestyle without having to worry about too much about work.
BUT…that’s a big but as you can see.
But you have to do the heavy lifting upfront, the hard work, the grind and then enjoy the outcome later, you won’t regret it.
Month 1-4: The Dream Phase
I was extremely excited, I thought I found a genius way to earn money on the internet without putting in any kind of work, I thought it was as easy as 1,2,3.
I thought I was well on my way to become a millionaire. But boy was I wrong, so wrong.
I had high hopes for everything that was merely a delusion, a dream implanted in me by wrong and fake affiliate marketers who just wanted to make an extra buck for promoting those awful and hopeless programs and courses.
I went on a frenzy, bought into programs after programs, bought one course and tried it for no more than 2 weeks and then I went on and bought the next “best” course I thought could make it happen.
I believed in all those stories on how you can become super rich within a few months if I followed their 5 magical steps. Hit me with a hammer for that, I believed it.
There are two reason why that happened:
- I was clueless and I lacked a ton of knowledge when it comes to affiliate marketing.
- I was in desperate need to get my life together, in other words, I was “fragile” to those promising words.
Perhaps those two reason could have been avoided if someone told me exactly how it works and what not to do, but I wasn’t lucky enough to find someone like that. I had to learn it the hard way.
That’s why this is so important to me, to help you realize what affiliate marketing is and especially how and what Wealthy Affiliate offers you.
With that said, all those people writing reviews about success and earning big money within a few months aren’t completely wrong though, the one and most important thing they get wrong and most people buy in, is the time to achieve success.
You can definitely earn 50k a month with affiliate marketing, but it is definitely not easy.
I call this phase of my progress, the dream phase, because I had unrealistic thoughts and goals within this period of time and because of that, I wasted a lot of money, money I did not have.
But then I remembered this quote “Every cloud has a silver lining”.
The meaning of this is, that for every setback and harm you face, there’s potential for a beneficial outcome. That led me to my next phase.
Month 4-8: The Study Phase
I was completely out of my bubble world after the initial 4 months into affiliate marketing.
At this point I knew exactly what to do, I cleared my mind off of anything that could possibly convince me to expect overnight success.
I also completely got rid of the shiny syndrome, that’s something successful affiliate marketer love to use when they refer to something that looks like the next best thing.
A more comprehensive explanation would be, quitting affiliate marketing after trying it for 3 months because you haven’t earned anything yet and jump over to dropshipping because you saw a nice aesthetic picture or convincing video on youtube about the great amount you can earn as a dropshipper.
You see where I am going with this? You are literally looking for the next shiny object without putting in the work and be patient with it.
You want fast money, quick money.
What they mean by that is, whenever you have the shiny syndrome, you would jump from one thing to the other, whenever you feel like quitting what you are doing and want to try the next best thing because it attracts you in one way or another. That’s when you fall into the shiny syndrome.
You can take a look at the first website I ever built here at http://waterpikreview.com/
I created this website without really knowing anything about keyword research, meta-description, google search console and google analytics. I just followed a few steps from a program I paid for and voilà, and I also did not know one thing about on and off page SEO.
This website is about Waterpik Water Flosser, I have no idea why I chose this specific niche.
I am not passionate about it and it is not very profitable either, especially since I have no clue what I was doing.
If I remember correctly it was one of the few things I saw on Amazon and for some magical reason decided to pick that as my niche. That’s how much of noob I was.
All I knew was, that I needed a platform and then shatter some affiliate links into that platform and drive traffic to it. It was all set and done, but I wasn’t able to drive traffic to it, the steps they showed me just didn’t work out to my expectations.
I was extremely proud to be honest, I never made a website before and in my eyes the website was slightly decent.
Believe it or not, the affiliate program I joined for this particular website was Amazon, so yes, I was an Amazon affiliate. I generated my first sale ever after 5 months. (I was already a premium member within WA)
Here’s a screenshot of it.
*Sorry for the blurry picture, I made it with my phone and wasn’t really focusing on the quality too much.
This was kinda relieving to be honest with you, it’s not much, just a mere $5 dollars, but this is proof that affiliate marketing is real and I made it happen, all due to the work I put in.
I didn’t get the sale through organic traffic though (google’s search engine), I got it from facebook. I created a facebook page and a pinterest page for this website. Creating social media accounts was one of the few things they taught inside that program.
I used Fiverr a lot, bought a lot of gigs on Fiverr just to get some of those work done instead of doing them myself. For a beginner in affiliate marketing that’s a big no no.
You don’t want to start outsourcing your content when you are just starting out with a new website and you are earning 0 dollars. Remember that.
So the next 4 months was all learning and studying for me, and I kinda liked it, not because it was rewarding or anything but solely because it gave me a purpose.
I was actually working on something new all by myself. That’s why I called this the study phase.
Month 8+: The Grind Phase
My life started to shift into the right direction after a few more months, I finally found the perfect community or platform that could teach me what I needed to know in order to succeed in affiliate marketing, yes, you guessed it…Wealthy Affiliate.
A community or place where I can learn and study at my own pace, since I couldn’t do this full time, because I was still a college student and I was also helping out with my family’s business when there’s no lecture.
SIDELINE: Family runs a phoneshop called Xtremeware, Phone repair and sales isn’t really my passion.
From the time I found out about Wealthy Affiliate til this very day, there hasn’t been a day that went by where I wasn’t on the platform.
I was always doing something within the community it could be learning, writing, communicating or just stalking (Successful people within Wealthy Affiliate). I was always doing something there, because it’s a part of me or at least that’s how I see it.
I created my second website all thanks to Wealthy Affiliate, you can check that out here: https://skincarecontrol.com
My first website wasn’t very successful, it has just a few pages and that’s it, the affiliate course I followed at the time was telling me to let my website sit after posting a few pages and google will start ranking my website and I will start getting traffic.
I know, that’s how easy they made it look like. And the funny thing is I actually believed it…LoL
My second website however, I followed every step from the training within Wealthy Affiliate and build out my own proper niche website, I was still very lazy with writing and pushing out content to be honest.
But slowly and little by little I was posting one post after the other and I reached about 20-30 posts so far.
I listened a lot to the live training from one specific coach within the platform, his name is Jay, and I learned a lot about ON PAGE SEO and OFF PAGE SEO from Jay.
To be able to rank your posts on the 1st page of google is all you need to do to get that organic traffic, that’s traffic from search engines like Google and Bing.
There are two ways to get traffic:
- Organic Traffic (Free traffic through search engines like Google and Bing)
- Paid Traffic (Literally paying for people to look at your posts, so ADS)
The best way to start with is hands down organic, need I say more? It’s free!
But as you go on and grow your business, you will need both form of traffic in my opinion and many successful marketers can agree on that.
My Article Got Ranked on Page #1
If you are familiar with organic traffic you’ll know what it means to rank on the 1st page of google, if you don’t, let me explain to you what ranking on the 1st page means.
To rank on the 1st page of google is not an easy task, ranking on google’s 1st page means google is trusting your site and is giving you the green light to be on their frontpage.
There are certain requirements which you need in order to make it to google’s front page, from the quality of your content to how long it is, from how people interact and communicate within your post, how long have your website been active.
There are honestly too many to name, but here are the ones known to the public:
- Quality Content
- Long Posts/Articles
- Viewers/Visitors interactions
- Website’s Age
Out of my experience the most important factor is still quality content and visitor’s interactions in my opinion, if Google sees that your content really answers the query and people are reading it and staying on your website for a long period of time.
Then that will grab Google’s attention and they will start to go over your articles more frequently and your website will start to gain some authority.
Authority websites are always given priority over non authority websites when it comes to getting checked by google.
Here’s a screenshot of one of my articles getting ranked on the 1st page of google, sitting in the 3rd position.
*You can go ahead and type in the keyword “Does sleeping slow down aging?” and see for yourself or click here.
WA taught me how to write content to please Google’s algorithm, this was only possible thanks to Wealthy Affiliate. Everything I needed to know was well within WA, all I had to do was ask questions and look for answers within the community.
If you want to know how I was able to rank on the 1st page of google, and want to learn under my wing, since I already summarized the information within WA in easy to swallow steps, don’t keep me waiting.
But if you want to do this on your own, maybe you are much smarter than me and you can learn quite better alone then that’s fine, too.
Here’s another screenshot showing how my article ranked over an authority website like huffington post. Crazy right?
Huffingtonpost was also ranked on the 1st page, but it was sitting on the 10th position which is the last position on Google’s 1st page.
I cannot thank WA enough for all the quality information they provide, and they keep on giving you newer and better strategies to help you grow your business, for that I am forever grateful even if I don’t succeed.
Because if I don’t then it is all on me for not trying hard enough.
See it like this, I am going to give you an example of why ranking on the 1st page of google is everything.
Imagine getting ranked for 100 keywords and you get 20 visitors every day for that specific keyword.
100×20=2000 visitors to your website for FREE.
and you know Visitors = Revenue = $$$
If you had 1000 keywords ranked on the 1st page then that would be
1000×20=20000 visitors to your website for FREE, do you see the bigger picture now? You can keep on scaling and make 10k – 30k – 50k and more, it is all a matter of patience and consistency.
What Wealthy Affiliate Taught Me
This is what Wealthy Affiliate offered me, and what I already learned so far:
- Trainings on how to build a niche website from scratch.
- Trainings on how to focus low hanging fruits (Keywords, I will talk about this further down the article)
- Trainings on how to use Google analytics and Google Webmaster
- Trainings on how to write quality content.
- Trainings on how to stay motivated.
This is not all they have to offer but rather what I already learned from WA.
There are some really great affiliate programs out there, some may even look so great they make you wonder “Is wealthy affiliate worth it?”
I have tried enough and my answer is without a second thought, yes, it is most definitely worth it. They have everything you need inside their platform, I was asking 5 questions every day for the first few months.
They never gave up on me when I struggled and didn’t understand some of the answers, instead they’ll make it their priority to help me understand it.
Of course none of this would have happened if I didn’t ask and if I didn’t seek for help.
I am just tired of reading about an affilaite program that will grant you riches with little to no work, the whole mindset of running a business is to work hard and then enjoy from the fruits of your labor.
Even if you were to be given a 100 million dollar business, if you are lazy and you didn’t help built it, it will crumble within a short period of time, agree?
Are there any flaws or cons? Of course there are, and I will talk about them soon, but that doesn’t change my mind, I still think that Wealthy Affiliate is the best affiliate program out there.
Now let me tell you in great details what WA is
What Is Wealthy Affiliate?
First thing first, before we get into it, here’s a screenshot of my Wealthy Affiliate Profile.
WA is one of the largest and most advanced affiliate marketing training platform out there. This is not surprising since they have been around since 2005.
Founded by Kyle Loudon and Carson Lim.
What WA offers you is something you will be thankful and grateful for your whole life, successful or not. The program is completely free to join and you can stay as long as you want without paying a single dime.
But of course I wouldn’t recommend staying that way, because the premium membership is just too good of a deal to pass on if you are serious about making a living online or if you plan on building your own business.
Who Should Not Join Wealthy Affiliate?
Instead of telling you who is allowed to join and what you need to join, I will tell you who shouldn’t instead, sounds cool? This way I can save both you and me valuable time and it will also be clearer whether it is for you or not.
If you can’t find yourself in any of the reason I am about to name then close your eyes, take a deep breath. Your journey to living a paradise is about to begin.
DO NOT, I repeat, do not join Wealthy Affiliate if:
- You are “meh” about WA and the whole online marketing thing.
- You honestly don’t think you have the time for this.
- You only want to do this whenever you have some time.
- You want to get crazy rich within a month or two.
If you feel related to any of this, I wouldn’t recommend you to try WA or any affiliate programs for that matter, because you will fail. Sorry for not being supportive, but not everyone that joins, succeed.
And 90% of the reason people who join, fail, is because of the reasons above.
If You Are “Meh” With Online Marketing
You really don’t have to do online marketing or any kind of internet marketing to be successful, to be able to earn a full time income though.
You can do what most of society does, go to tschool, graduate and then find a job. Work your b*** off from a 9-5 job and earn bare minimum to get through the whole month.
Unless you are lucky and find a job that can pay you more than you need, a job that can give you the freedom to travel whenever you want, to put you in a financial blooming state.
I am not going to judge, as long as you are happy with your life and even if it’s just 50k a year, it is all good.
This is not for you if you have no complaints about your earnings and you are happy.
No Time For The Hustle
This one is for you if you have no time to spare, not everyone’s schedule is the same and I understand that. You might have to work 2 shifts to take care of your very sick mom or dad.
You might have to go to school and then take care of your siblings and house and you still want to work on something that you like.
I totally understand if you want to earn some extra money, but don’t have much time left in a day. If I have to be honest with you, I wouldn’t start affiliate marketing just yet.
Affiliate marketing requires you to work on it and if you work on it two out of the seven days you will forget about it or be so demotivated to even pick it up again.
This could be demotivating on itself if you can relate to these situations, but if you still want to try you can join as a FREE Member, but don’t pay for the premium otherwise you will be wasting your money.
Whenever There’s Time
It is true you can do affiliate marketing and be successful by working at your own pace.
But don’t be mistaken, that’s not the same as working whenever you have some time. If you think you are only going to work when you have some time before going to the party or when you have some time before going to the movies since you are waiting for the others.
Yea, sorry pal, that’s not going to work out. Why?
- You are not dedicated.
- You will stop working on it eventually.
It’s a habit, working on your online business is and should be a habit otherwise you will work for 2 weeks, 2 months and then you will find excuses to stop doing it.
I have seen that with my own eyes and the majority of people that say they won’t, will. To you guys, the best option is to join the free starter membership and not the premium.
Get Rich Within a Very Short Period of Time
Now Is It Possible? In all honesty..yes.
But how likely is it? 0.1%.
My advice for you is don’t get into affiliate marketing with that kind of mindset, you won’t get very far. Try to be dedicated and put your 100% effort and I can promise you, you will have an amazing business that brings in hundreds if not thousands of dollars.
And you will be that much more grateful and happier, knowing that you achieved all this by yourself and no one can tell you otherwise.
I can be like most people you find on the 1st page of google saying how WA can make you rich in a blink of an eye just to make you sign up.
I can’t, I just can’t. I have too much empathy and sympathy for people, I know how it feels to be tricked or fooled.
So I will only ask you to join if you are ready.
Free Starter Membership VS Premium Membership
*Here is an overview of the two options within WA.
The Free Starter Membership (What You Can Get For Free)
Where can you find a platform, an affiliate program in 2019 that offers you unlimited time in the community for free?
The free starter membership is especially good for beginners, you are free to join and get yourself acquainted with the online world first. Learning the very basics for free whereas in other affiliate programs they would most definitely charge you.
Not only is WA a free affiliate program, here’s a summarized list of what you get for the free to join membership option:
- A complete beginner’s guide that consist of training videos.
- Video Walkthrough
- You get free live help in the first 7-days after joining.
- 2 free websites to start with.
- Websites backup
- 2 training classrooms.
- A personal affiliate blog.
- Access to one of the best keyword tool (Max.30 searches)
- Affiliate program
- 1 on 1 coaching (The first 7-days after joining)
- Affiliate Bootcamp Training (Phase 1 only)
The free membership offers you more than enough to start with, it is extremely good beginners because you can stay on it for as long as you like and learn all the basics.
Instead of paying for a program or course that teaches you the same thing.
Here are the 10 free lessons for you to get started with your business and brand.
Get yourself familiar with building a website and keyword research, learn from the training, the beginner’s mistake and all those things and the best part is, you can take your time because it’s all free.
With some exception to the coaching which is only the first 7 days upon signing up, and that is understandable.
There’s honestly nothing to lose and everything to gain, it is FREE, $0 dollars…and you need to understand that this could change your life forever.
The Premium Membership (Where the REAL fun begins)
The Free Membership is great, but the Premium Membership within WA? It is outstanding in every way possible, it will change your life for the better if you allow it.
I have so much to show you about the premium membership that even this super long post won’t be enough.
This is what you get when you sign up for the Premium Membership option:
- You get unlimited live help for as long as you are a member.
- Unlimited 1 on 1 coaching
- You can create up to 50 free websites.
- Website Security Package
- Website Backup
- Live Video Classes
- Beginner’sTraining Courses
- Affiliate Bootcamp Training (All 7 Phases)
- 24/7/365 Live Chat Support (Insane)
- Keyword Research Tool (Unlimited Access)
- Website Feedback Platform
- Website Comment Platform
All of that and much more!
This option is only for you if you are serious about building a successful online business with your bare hands. If you are still asking yourself whether WA is a scam or not, you just have to keep reading.
For just $49 dollars a month you get access to unlimited keyword research, 50 websites, 1 on 1 coaching and 24/7/365 live chat support.
All of those features hold a value of at least $30 each and can easily add up to over $200, if you don’t believe me do your own due diligence before joining Wealthy Affiliate. WA is here to stay because they know.
Let me put this into perspective for you, $49 dollars a month is less than $2 dollars a day, that’s less than a cup of starbucks coffee…do you realize something now?
You can either skip the starbuck coffee and use that money to build your own thousand or ten thousand dollar business or you can keep on doing what you are doing and spend that extra $2 dollars every day for a whole month. Whatever makes you happy.
If you decided to put that cup of coffee down and you are ready to make some real money online, I am here for you.
*Bonus: I will help you get your 1st month as a Premium Member for just $19 instead of $49.
One Of The Best Web Hosting Platforms
It is of utmost importance to choose a good Web Hosting Platform because that’s where you are going to build you brand and your personal online business.
The starting point of your whole foundation.
If you don’t really know much about webhosting in general I wouldn’t recommend you to break your head over this, just take a quick look and look a little more into it later.
But as you can see, it is a lot cheaper and also offer so much more than some similar programs.
Your website is also protected and secured, no hackers are spammers can penetrate the multi layer of securities from the Wealthy Affiliate platform.
Sitespeed is also on point, if you didn’t already know the loading speed of your website is a very important factor to keep visitors on your website that can eventually convert.
SPEED = CONVERSION = $$$
The Best Success Stories From a Community Like This
I know you have been waiting for this while reading this Wealthy Affiliate review, like where’s the success story? I don’t believe any of this without some success stories.
Well here it is, I am going to show you some of the most mind-blowing success stories there is in affiliate marketing, if this is what you need to fully understand the power of WA, then this is what you will get.
*This is Grace, better known as Littlemama within the community.
First one on the list, she’s one of my favorite when it comes to succes stories, why?
Because she’s a stay at home mom with children and still managed to make a bombass online business that’s super successful.
She’s probably the man of the house right now (Just kidding, Grace xD)
For all you ladies out there, you don’t have any excuses. And of course she’s not the only successful female within WA, but she’s my favorite.
*RD40, one of the few who helped me a lot, all his advice were golden nuggets to me.
RD40’s real name is Ralph, he has been successful for years and has been earning crazy money, he’s not very active on WA, only when you need his advice.
He’s busy grinding and is currently already a 6-figure earner. (Wait for me, Ralph!)
*Jerry Huang is the youngest successful member I know inside Wealthy Affiliate.
He’s just 21 years old and is already one of the top affiliates inside WA, he reached the super affiliate status in just 2 years at WA.
He is working on his own courses right now, and he’s been killing it so far. His audience is Singapore or China, not quite sure, but he’s literally started from the bottom and now I’m here. Just amazing.
*RoopKiuttu will be the last one I am going to share on this review or else it will be too much and too long.
Roope is full of optimism and inspiration, he’s also an ambassador within WA. I am pretty sure he will help you with whatever you are asking if you send him a private message.
Just make sure your question will be straight to the point.
There is a ton more of those success stories, but like I said I am not going to name them all, it’s not unnecessary and a waste of your valuable time.
Because there are new success stories almost every day.
The Support Within Wealthy Affiliate Is Top Notch
Wealthy Affiliate is a pay it forward kind of community, you can ask whatever you want and whenever you want, you will find people sharing their take on different strategies.
They also have a live chat where you can talk to fellow members from around the globe and ask them questions or just communicating with them and ask them about their progress and struggles.
“Teamwork makes the Dream work” Ever heard of this?
There ought to be someone who overcame your current struggle, instead of finding it out yourself or solve it yourself, you can ask.
Take a look here, I asked my fellow members about the best theme for a fitness blog and I recevied an answer within 5 minutes.
I don’t know any other affiliate program or platform that offers so much support and help.
The Jaaxy Keyword Research Tool (WA’s Keyword Tool)
I am not going to give you a full review about the Jaaxy Keyword Research Tool, perhaps that will be a separate review. Wealthy Affiliate gives you free access to the Lite version of Jaaxy.
The full version cost $49 dollars on itself, so I wouldn’t recommend using the full version just yet.
The Lite version can already provide you with unlimited keyword research and help you find those low hanging fruits, the money making keywords, the golden nuggets or whatever you want to call them.
Take a look here.
When you sign up for the Premium Membership, you will be granted access to the Lite version of Jaaxy alltogether.
You can see on the photo above I searched for the keyword term “Best Diet” and those are my results.
- AVG is how many times that specific keyword is being searched on google in a month on average.
- Traffic is how many visitors you can get for that specific keyword in a month on average.
- QSR is how many websites are ranked for the specific keyword.
- KQI is the Keyword Quality Indicator, green is great, yellow is good and red is poor.
- SEO is how well or likely you can rank for that specific keyword.
This is one of the most crucial part of affiliate marketing, keyword research and WA has one of the best tool for that. It shows you exactly how likely you can rank for certain keywords which makes ranking for google soooo much easier.
Do I Need To Be Tech Savvy?
Absolutely not, you don’t need to any kind of savvy. You just need to come in and learn, follow the steps and ask questions.
I know you may think about htings like, “I don’t know how to build a website” or “I don’t know how to write quality content”. Let me tell you this, you don’t have to, does it help if you do? Of course, but it is not necessary, not at all.
That’s like saying you need to know Physics to learn Physics or you need to know how to bake to learn baking, you get me?
Wealthy Affiliate is an all in one package, you can start from absolutely ZERO knowledge and still succeed and build your own successful online business which you can brag about later (Just kidding, don’t brag, be humble).
You can rest assured when you become a memebr of Wealthy Affiliate, everything you need is well within your grasp. There’s a reason why they offer you a FREE membership, because once you’ve seen what it is like, you wouldn’t want to leave, but instead you would want to learn more and more.
Why all the trust? Because Kyle and Carson are the most successful affiliate marketer in 2019 and beyond. Take a look at this article and see for yourself what to look at when you want to consider someone “The Most” successful.
You Can’t Find Better Motivation Elsewhere
Another thing I picked up being a Wealthy Affiliate Member is the motivation you can get inside. WA puts education as one of their top priority.
Sometimes it feels like they want you to succeed more than you do yourself, I can’t explain thsi feeling to you unless you are a member yourself.
Most programs just want you to pay them and when you are in, you take care of yourself, right? Not Wealthy Affiliate, they want you to ask questions and build your business, they even have an affiliate bootcamp training.
You can promote WA if you can’t find any other thing to promote, they will give you all the necessary information you need to promote WA.
They got your back from the very beginning til you have a blooming and successful business, even then they still help you with strategies to help you scale your already successful business.
Which leads me to the next topic, the Super Affiliate Conference in Las Vegas.
The Las Vegas Event (For Super Affiliates Only)
If being a part of Wealthy Affiliate isn’t awesome already, they also have a Las Vegas Super Affiliate Conference every year at the same time.
This is an event Kyle and Carson specifically organized to call up all Super Affiliates within WA and treat them to a nice fancy time at Las Vegas.
With first class food and entertainment, you will get to stay at suite, expenses are paid by Kyle and Carson. If you live overseas, you will get a ticket for free to attend the Super Affiliate Conference.
So basically a little vacation WA sponsors you for your hard work and sucess.
Does Wealthy Affiliate Has Any Flaws or Cons?
I know you haven’t heard anything bad about WA my whole review, and it may start to sound really biased to you, but that’s alright.
If you read my Personal Story With WA at the start of the article, you know I am not being objective at all. Like all things, nothing is perfect, in fact perfection is overrated and imperfection is underrrated.
If something was perfect, you wouldn’t want to change it or keep on improving it. So here are the flaws in my opinion.
- The information – No, don’t get me wrong, I don’t mean the information within WA is flawed. What I actually mean is the amount of information. There is so much information that sometimes even I don’t know where to start looking, it can be extremely overwhelming.
- There are about 7 Countries who does not have access to the FREE membership.
- The navigation – I think the navigation can use some improvement. If you have been at Wealthy Affiliate for a while this problem will probably fade, because you’ll get used to it by then. For beginners, I think it can be a little bit confusing.
- They are absolutely against self-promotion – I mean I get this, to prevent the whole community from getting spammed with promotion left and right, so you got to be careful where you share your link.
- Outdated – Some information within WA is in my opinion kinda outdated.
There are perhaps still a few minor things here and there, but I don’t think it matters that much, because nothing is perfect and that’s the beauty of it. Wealthy Affiliate is still better than at least 99% of all affiliate programs out there, and that’s not even an exaggeration.
My Final Verdict On WA
Even though I haven’t reached amazing success yet with WA like many people, I know for one that I will only get closer and closer to my goals as long as I chip away at it every day. The success I have now is already a proven fact to me of what Wealthy Affilaite is capable of.
Also the reason my Wealthy Affiliate Review is the most unbiased in 2019 and onward.
From the bottom of my heart I really wish I could help you realize what kind of opportunity this is, and the reason I keep on pondering about it is because I honestly want you to succeed.
If this review helped you realize something or helped you in any way possible, I want you to tell me after a year or two how grateful you are and how thankful you are to me, and maybe grab a drink or two and hangout. “Teamwork makes The Dreamwork”.
Look over my shoulder and learn from me, I will tell you what to do from step 1 to step 50.
If you have any question at all do not hesitate, just ask and I will give you my honest answer, stay cool and stay humble.
