Each week the site grows and grows. New training videos been added continuously and new members joining day by day. The vision of Wealthy Affiliate.com was (and still is) to create a friendly community for affiliates, regardless being a beginner or an expert. I joined Wealthy Affiliate.com in October 2016. As you might read in my WHO AM I section, I had several approaches to affiliate marketing with more or less success. Now I am walking my way through the courses and getting wiser and wiser. I chose the free membership – What do I had to loose? Over 600,000 members and a 98% positive review rate can`t be so wrong, or?
Honestly, not even 4 days later I went “ALL IN” and decided for the yearly membership! Why? See the following reasons:

Within the free membership you will have access to a tool called SiteRubix site builder. This tool is incredible. I have never seen a tool which makes site-building so easy! It only takes 4 steps to have a website ready. Basically you need also a domain for your website(s). In your FREE membership you will get 2 websites and 2 free domain names. If you apply for a Premium membership you can have a total of 25 websites with free domains, as well 25 with your own purchased domain name. It is very easy to verify the availability of your domain name. If it`s free, you can go ahead and purchase it. After this step, just link it to your new website with just one click. You don`t have to use any third party program. If you are familiar with buying domains, this might help. Here is an overview of the benefits, buying domain names within Wealthy Affiliate. Take a look: There are a lot of benefits when you purchase the domain through Wealthy Affiliate.com. For example: You have the privacy protection included. Or an email account for your domain. As you can see, the competitors are charging extra money for this.
Let’s talk about the tools. I’v already covered my tools I use in a different post. I strongly recommend to read the post “What tools do I use?”. But let me say it how it is. There are tools you will use and there will be tools you won’t use.
- Keyword Tool: This tool is a built-in search and analyze tool for keywords. This tool is used to identify the competition between the keywords. It is a basic tool but it does everything you need. If you need to go deeper, I would recommend Jaaxy.
- Rapid Writer: It is a useful tool for blogging. Just copy and past your content into the field and check your keyword density. Too much of one keyword can also affect your blog negative.
- Link Tracker: This tool helps you to optimize your Internet marketing campaigns. It replaces your affiliate link on your website. You can track how much traffic you are sending to your merchant pages, which links are effective (and which aren’t), and which keywords users are coming to your page from. This tool will greatly benefit you in making informed optimization decisions for your site.
- Keyword List: You will find lists with the Top100 keywords with the lowest competition. These are PDF-lists and will be updated time by time.
The Affiliate Bootcamp:
One of the biggest issues for people is to chose their niche. I’ve been approached several times about this issue. But guess what – here is your solution: The Affiliate Bootcamp! This is one of the greatest features of Wealthy Affiliate. The Bootcamp is designed for promoting Wealthy Affiliate and teaches you how to work as an affiliate marketer. You already earn money for free signups! This could cover your initial cost! Isn’t that cool?? If you don’t have a clue – this is your Holy Grail!
This is one of the best trainings on this planet (IMHO :)). Why? You just have to follow the step-by-step video based training. It will lead you through the complete process how to start your affiliate business and refer others to Wealthy Affiliate.com. Here is an overview of what you will get:
Okay, so hope you got a good view into this program. There is much more to tell! This Wealthy Affiliate Review can’t cover each and everything. We will take a look at the last point of this review.
What is the difference between the Starter membership and the Premium membership? Take a look at the following graphic. I will do another article about the two options, but at the moment it explains it quiet well.
Here is a short breakdown of the two memberships:
- FREE membership – costs you US$0 – you can stay forever, it is totally FREE to join
- PREMIUM membership – costs you US$19 the first month (you have to take the advantage of the 59% discount during the first 7 days after joining) and US$47 for the following months.
You can cancel the membership at any time and it will end by the paid month – absolutely fair! I started with the free account but as I mentioned at the beginning of this post, I upgraded 4 days later to premium! But there’s really no pressure.
As said in my WHO AM I – section, I’ve been looking for this kind of value since 2008! I can tell you, there is nothing out there that can beat Wealthy Affiliate.com. If you are really interested in starting your own online business then this will be my recommended choice. You will get training, support, resources and a lot of new friends as well. If you’re willing to take time by going through the training, invest into yourself and learn new skills and most importantly: take action on what you learn – Wealthy Affiliate.com will help you to live the life you want to live! Start your free membership today, take a look around the platform and as soon as you feel comfortable grab your premium membership. If you are not 100% sure at the moment, here are my PROs:
- It is FREE to join
- NO credit card is required
- It runs web-based, no matter if you are on a PC, a MAC or even access from your mobile device
- State of the art training
- Easy to follow
- A+++ support
- Great and friendly community
- NO software to download
- Learn whenever you have time
- Live webinars
- Great FREE tools to use
- My support 😉
Nothing is 100% perfect, so it would be a lie to say that there are no CONs. There needs to be room for improvement anyway. As you might know, German people tend to complain on a high level! So here are my CONs:
- There is so much information, this can be overwhelming at first
- You could end up by spending too much time in the Live Chat or on the platform by doing thing, which doesn’t bring you to your goal
- Some tutorials need to be updated
- New members might answer questions which may not be correct answers (just trying to help)
The Bottom Line: I’ve met a lot of people on Wealthy Affiliate.com since I joined and I honestly can tell you: Archiving your goal in affiliate marketing is absolutely possible! No doubt! My search went over 8 years and I’ve found my final home here. After a very few days I’ve seen such a lot of progress. This is the right path! Let me invite you to Wealthy Affiliate.com and help you creating your own personal success story!
This is the end of my extended review and I also like to close out with a quote from a person I really honor, Tyler Perry:
There are a lot of people who have dreams, goals, and hopes, but there aren’t a lot who get to see them realized.
See you on the other side, my friend! You can drop me a comment here or meet me at Wealthy Affiliate.com.
