A brief background

Wealthy Affiliate is a web portal with a variety of diverse courses on internet business, mostly geared towards showing anybody how to earn an income from creating an online business, mostly through affiliate marketing. It encompasses several topics in internet entrepreneurship such as;

  • Keyword research
  • Content creation
  • Websites and WordPress
  • Search engine optimization
  • Domains and hosting

This review is a brief introduction to show you features you can utilize to go from a complete newbie in internet business to earning a regular stream of PASSIVE INCOME.

The internet has come a long way since the ’90s and is currently the main medium of transacting business. From an individual’s Google search for appropriate products and services to large corporations transacting transcontinental business.

I believe this is enough to show the potential for anybody to plug in and earn a piece of the pie. If I’ve still not convinced you at this point, READ ON. Furthermore, Wealthy Affiliate has been active since 2005. What’s the success rate of businesses beyond their first year again? You get the drift.

How to join and give it a test drive

I can assure you that you will not be disappointed once you SIGN UP and have a look around. Besides joining for the first time is absolutely FREE. How about that?

If you are pleased with what you see then proceed on to unlock more features by paying for a monthly subscription at $49 only. With the first month being a discounted $19 for new members.

There’s also an annual subscription at $495, which translates to $41.25 as opposed to paying on a monthly basis.

Leveraged training, where it all starts

If I look back over the course of my life anything new has always involved learning. Either through a classroom-style education or field experience. I doubt this is any different for you.

At Wealthy Affiliate it is no different, whether you have prior interaction in online entrepreneurship I believe there’s something new still to be learned. Complete newbies are better placed to learn from the concisely formatted material available.

There are TWO particularly beneficial courses I’ll highlight for now.

  • Online Entrepreneur Certification
    • Getting Started
    • Building Your Own Traffic Producing Website
    • Making Money!
    • Mastering Social Engagement
    • Achieving Maximum Success Through Content Creation
  • Affiliate Bootcamp
    • Getting Your Business Rolling
    • Content, Keywords and Conversions
    • Giving Your Site Social Value
    • Get Visual. Get Aesthetic. Get a Brand Through Media
    • Knowing Your Audiences & Catapulting Your Referrals
    • Bing, Yahoo & The Power of PPC
    • How to Scale Successful PPC Campaigns

These are totally indispensable for anyone trying to start the journey into learning the ropes of an internet-based business. Do not jump straight to the MAKING MONEY lesson without going through the basics! You might miss some key concepts.

The web is made of content that users search and take action on including making purchases off the internet. That is where you now come in. By creating content you point these users in the right direction by targeting relevant keywords (we’ll talk about this next). In that instant should a purchase be made you EARN a commission.

There’s way more in terms of training but I wanted this to be as short as possible. I’ll expound on more in upcoming posts.

Keyword research, how to get a paying audience

A keyword is basically the search term a search engine user inputs to obtain information online. It is the word or words making up a phrase that results in a search engine’s search results. You should be familiar with this from Google, Yahoo, and Bing among others.

Within the Wealthy Affiliate portal, there’s a keyword research tool called Jaaxy. This tool facilitates queries or information related to a particular keyword. Information like monthly searches done on a keyword, traffic expected for being RANKED under the keyword, and how many websites are quoted under this keyword.

This is particularly important when coming up with content targeting a niche or sub-niche e.g. on shoes you might want to drill down to running shoes, road or trail running shoes, etc. Just creating content on shoes might be too broad and miss your intended target audience completely.

Additionally, you get to obtain domain name suggestions you can register or buy under a searched keyword.

This tool, despite being an independent product, is absolutely FREE with a membership account to make your foray into the online business world that much smoother.

Websites, domain names & hosting, your online real estate

Over the period of its existence, the good people at Wealthy Affiliate have continuously added features crucial to its members and the success of their online businesses. One of these is the ability to search for, refine, select and purchase domain names without having to leave the platform.

For starters, however, you do not even have to purchase a domain name. You can select a free domain on which to create a website and content around. As soon as you feel confident enough you can then proceed on to acquire one of your own.

After you’ve selected a domain name, still from within the platform you can install WordPress, a content management system. Do not fret if HTML, CSS, and JavaScript are not your cup of soup. WordPress takes care of everything, all you have to dwell on is creating content.

Another feature on the platform is website hosting. With hosting, I’m sure what comes to mind is Bluehost, Dreamhost, GoDaddy, etc. Well, Wealthy Affiliate has catered for the hustle of finding one, setting up, and paying extra. Hosting of your website happens within the platform and it’s absolutely FREE!

Updated interface

Since I wrote this review Wealthy Affiliate has updated the user interface. I thought this is important to include here so as not to cause confusion. Layout of membership accounts you might have come across elsewhere might look different. That is the old design. The screenshot below is of the current interface.

While the chat feature has remained where it was, WA added the dashboard shortcuts to the left for easier and fast navigation.

Additionally, WA has added the member profile block with minimal info like join date, rank, and achievements. This was previously only accessible from a drop-down menu under the profile picture on the top right.

In conclusion…

There are so many more features beyond what I’ve outlined here. I did not want to delve into these as they may not be necessary when starting out into online entrepreneurship.

In short joining Wealthy Affiliate enables you to get a wealth of immersive knowledge, in a continuous update to keep up with online business trends. In 15 YEARS (as of 2021) Wealthy Affiliate has grown to hundreds of thousands of like-minded individuals who have achieved success and are ready to assist you on your journey towards the same.

In case I forgot to mention, the portal is also made in a way that is easy to interact with and get feedback from the community of caring members through the chat, private message, and comments sections.

These are features that will encourage any new person’s self-confidence as long as you reach out. I’ve experienced this community’s love myself over the period of my membership. I encourage you to TAKE ACTION TODAY and draw your own conclusions down the line.

Bonus

Besides opening a $0 starter account (your credit card is not needed for this by the way) there is a BONUS. Details to be revealed inside once you create your FREE starter membership!

  5. What I like about wealthy affiliate over other teaching platforms, is the fact that it’s become well established over the years. They have the experience. Also, when joining wealthy affiliate, you can benefit from other affiliate marketers that have been
    in the business for a long time.

    I just can’t stress the fact enough that newcomers should follow that which has been proven to work time and time again. They shouldn’t be trying to reinvent the wheel.

  6. Hi. I’m glad you mentioned the Wealthy Affiliate community because I think this is an invaluable resource. Some people will manage to set themselves up all on their own and be successful online just following a bit of advice they read in books or online training. But I think they will be the rare ones. Most of us need a community of like-minded people where successful online entrepreneurs provide tips, guidance, and coach and mentor others. This is true of many fields but probably more so of the online world, one key to success online is to find out where the already successful people hang out and then hang out with them. Good luck!

  7. Wealthy Affiliate is the way to go! I’ve started blogs before but there was so much I didn’t know and I didn’t have much support. Learning all of this information on your own is really tough! But I started WA in December 2020 and I’m amazed that I’m still learning so much and building my business. I’ve actually stuck to it! That’s really big for me. And the only reason I have is because of the community at WA. They keep me motivated, focused, and I can ask any question! Someone will have the answer or point me in the right direction. The training there has helped me tremendously. It’s the best decision I ever made in regards to moving forward with my dream of becoming a writer. It’s inspiring to see another WA member having success and good luck in the future!

  8. People need to understand how affiliate programs really work.  Wealthy Affiliate is literally the best platform for people who are serious about making an income off the internet!  There’s much to learn, as well as much to do!  I also know one will get out of something exactly what they put into it!  Wealthy Affiliate is no exception in this regard!  Treat it as you’d like to be treated yourself and you will become successful.  Anything less than this, and that success level will fall short!

    • I love the way you look at it. The problem has always been many people want the reward without paying the price. The good thing though is that the training at Wealthy Affiliate has a gradual learning curve for a beginner.

  9. Your review of WA was very interesting. For me, WA has been the first step to learn about creating an online business. Though I haven’t been very regular in the growth of my business because I had a demanding daytime job before (I used to be a consultant), I still made money from my websites thanks to their advice and training. Also, my websites are still indexed on Google and I want to be more aggressive to be successful. Thanks for reminding me of my goals!

    • I was in your situation at one point. A very demanding job that left me empty at the end of the day. The trick is to plan and do something, however little, every day in the direction of your dreams. It might take a year or two but will be worth the effort and patience.
