Name : Wealthy Affiliate

My rating : 4.8/5
You probably went to school to learn a specific profession and live from it. It was probably not really exciting but every morning you were getting up to go to your classes so that you would graduate and finally work in a stable job that maybe you did not even really liked. If I talk for myself, this is what I did and I did it mostly because the society tells us to do it.
Anyway, the point is if you could choose to go to school and learn how to make money immediately, do you think it would be more exciting, since the first reason we go to school is to assure ourselves a respectable income? Imagine, the course’s name is ‘’Make Money Online and Build Your Own Business’’. It sounds really exciting don’t you think.
What would you say if I tell you Wealthy Affiliate gives that type of classes.
And I could go on.
To reach success, either in a profession like doctor, police officer, etc. you need to work and learn. It is the same for online marketing. The difference with online marketing is that it is accessible, easy going and not expansive (compared with a doctor formation where you will be at school for at least 5 years and it will cost you more than $25 000).
At Wealthy Affiliate, the start of online marketing, they give you all the tools you need to start properly your own business that will allow you to fully live your life. Basically, to start your business you need to follow these 4 steps :
What is awesome with this easy process is that ANYONE can do it. You can be 20 years old or 80 years old, you can be a man or a woman, you can live in America or in Africa or wherever in the world, online marketing doesn’t care.
There are many ways you can succeed online, and Wealthy Affiliate has all the trainings you need to reach your goals. Here are some of the training you can find at WA :
Whether you are good or not online, you can be a beginner or advanced, Wealthy Affiliate is there for you and has everything you need.
Watch this short video 🙂
To continue with the school story, when you were doing your course to become the best doctor, were you able to have access to professionnals that could answer all your questions? It is possible the answer is yes, and I am really happy for you because I didn’t have this chance in one of my course.
What is AMAZING with Wealthy Affiliate is the 24/7 support that will answer you as soon as your questions is posted. Have you ever had a quick answer like that? I think this is one of the major factor of Wealthy Affiliate’s success. You can post your questions there :
So, this is truly convenient to have access to these services when you have one simple question that if it is not answered quickly, you stay stuck and cannot continue.
I think this is my favorite point. Wealthy Affiliate Community is unique, you cannot find one anywhere else. People who are at WA want to learn more and grow. They are there for the same purpose as you : reach financial freedom.
So, why wouldn’t we encourage each other? We all want to succeed and we all know we can make it. It can be hard sometimes and this is why the community is there to encourage you to continue and not give up. Success doesn’t arrive in the first 7 days, you have to work for it.
People let you know they are there for you and that you can ask them all the questions you want, if they can answer you, they will. This is some examples of messages I received on my account a couple of days after joining in :
The community is extremely generous and you are part of this community. You can give to others too and in fact, you have interest in doing so because Wealthy Affiliate has an Ambassadorship program. Briefly, this ranks you in the Top 200 of Wealthy Affiliate members and you are known as a mentor in the community. It is cool that WA recognized your implication in the community and rewards you for it.
Now let’s talk about the interesting part of Wealthy Affiliate : Making Money.
Did you know that the Web is one of the places where it has the most transactions in the world actually? You probably know Amazon or eBay. Let me tell you approximately the revenu of Amazon in 2018, we talk about 70 billions of dollars. This is a lot of money. But what if you could have a part of this 70 billions $? Even if it was 1% ($700 000).
Well, Wealthy Affiliate gives you this opportunity. With the Online Entrepreneur Certification, they teach you how to make money with affiliate networks. Let’s put an image on the four steps I explained before :
What is really nice about this training is that either you are a beginner with websites or an advanced user of WordPress, it explains you every single thing step by step. So no, you don’t need any experience to start your own business.
In this training you’ll go through 50 lessons, each of them having different tasks to accomplish. This is a thing I appreciate of the trainings : the tasks. When I say they guide you step by step, this is exactly what I talk about. Once you’ve done a task, you check it and it is saved as completed. Let see the 5 levels of lessons you’ll find in the Online Entrepreneur Certification :
1. Getting Started (FREE!)
2. Building Your Own Traffic Producing Website
3. Making Money!
4. Mastering Social Engagement
5. Achieving Maximum Success Through Content Creation
The first level is free and accessible just by joining as a Free Member (I first thought it was a really nice opportunity given by WA and I still think that). In this level, you have access to 10 lessons allowing you to explore and decide whether you want to continue or not your business.
Levels 2 to 5 are available as a Premium Member for the cheap price of $49.99/month or $359.99/year. They give you the opportunity to improve your business, make it professionnal and generate revenue from it. Remember when I said it would cost you at least $25 000+ to become a doctor…?
$49.99 is not expensive to reach financial freedom, don’t you think?
Another interesting training is the Affiliate Bootcamp. You probably think that Affiliate Marketing is not for you and that you would not know how to make money out of it. Let me tell you something, I totally understand you because I had exactly the same thought.
Let me tell you something else, when you started your course to become a doctor, were you thinking ”I don’t know how I will be able to remember the symptoms of every desease”? (I’m not a doctor, it is only an example). Maybe you did ask yourself this question or another one related to the profession, but you reassure yourself by telling you that you would learn it at school and everything would be fine.
Why couldn’t it be the same with Affiliate Marketing? Do you think successful people in Affiliate Marketing were good at the beginning? Everyone has to start somewhere, either for becoming a doctor or an Affiliate Marketer. And this is the beauty of Wealthy Affiliate, it teaches you Online Marketing. Basically, it is an online school with more than thousand of training and an awesome community always there to help you.
Now, let see what offers Wealthy Affiliate in their Affiliate Bootcamp! First, it is the same standard as the Online Entrepreneur Certification which means that the first level is free and levels 2 to 7 are for premium members only.
1. Getting Your Business Rolling (FREE!)
2. Content, Keywords and Conversions
3. Giving Your Site Social Value
4. Get Visual. Get Aesthetic. Get a Brand Through Media
5. Knowing Your Audiences & Catapulting Your Referrals
6. Bing, Yahoo & The Power of PPC
7. How to Scale Successful PPC Campaigns
Once again, it gives you the opportunity to start and see if it’s for you and if you want to continue the Affiliate Marketing journey. It is important to not forget that this is a step by step training, so if you have gone through the 70 lessons, there are still way more trainings you can find on WA to improve your business.
Imagine having the opportunity to learn everyday how to make money and fully enjoy a total financial freedom. Isn’t what we want after all?
Before being a Premium Member, it is entirely normal to be a Free Member. You don’t really know if Wealthy Affiliate is for you and if you want to continue the journey as an Affiliate Marketer. But I must tell you the advantages of being a Premium Member at Wealthy Affiliate so that you can make yourself a thesis on whether or not it is worth it.
I will present you both side, Free Member and Premium Member, as a list with caracteristics of each.
This is a little sneek peak of what you can find at Wealthy Affiliate as a Premium Member. If you rather stay as a Free Member, you can and still succeed, it may just take a little more work.
Like I told you in a previous chapter, Step 2 of creating a business is to build a website. At Wealthy Affiliate, they give you the opportunity to create this website. WordPress is a powerfull tool to create and manage beautiful websites, you just have to learn how to use it and this is where WA comes into place.
The trainings you find at Wealthy Affiliate will guide you in the total creation of your website from A to Z. It is not hard, you only need to take your time, listen (just like if you were in your doctor course!) and apply what is explained. Success will come if you follow these ”rules”.
As a Free Member, you have access to 5 themes. These themes can be personalized as you want, it is you that decide how your website look. As a Premium Member, you have access to more than 3000 themes, yes this is a lot! This is where it comes interesting because you can really choose a theme that is related to your choosen niche.
And what is really cool is that if you have a question about a specific theme or just in building your website, the community is there to help you!
One of the amazing thing about Wealthy Affiliate is the Vegas Reward. But what is it exactly? Let me explain you.
The Las Vegas Super Affiliate Conference is a reward when you reach 300 active referrals. This trip is completely paid by the company, you don’t have to pay anything. Isn’t it exciting? I think it is!
It is never too late to start your business and look how amazing it can be.
Now that I explained you what Wealthy Affiliate is about, it is time for me to give you my opinion.
First of all, the thing I find the most interesting in Wealthy Affiliate is the caring community. People being present for you, always there to answer your questions, I couldn’t ask for a better support. Starting a business can be hard, but with WA community who feels like a family, it’s like everything is possible.
Second, the trainings. Wow, I didn’t know it was possible to have access to so much knowledge for only 50 bucks per month. And it is particular knowledge, they teach you HOW TO MAKE MONEY. I mean, it won’t be long before your $50 will be refund… You just have to work for it!
Third, I love the fact that you can be reward by your implication in the community with the Ambassadorship program and the Las Vegas Super Affiliate Conference. It shows us that WA cares about us and wants us to be successful. It is more motivating to work hard when you know someone cares.
If I can say one last thing, I would say : What do you have to lose? You have a Free Membership that let you see if you can like it. If you don’t try you will never know, that is certain. Successful people didn’t wait for opportunities, they created them. You have one opportunity right here in front of you, now you have to choose if you take it or not.
Hope this review helped you to understand better what Wealthy Affiliate is.
