TRAINING/TOOLS OVERVIEW

I will make a list of the most important tools for you to know exactly what you are getting by being member of WA:

  1. Online Enterpreneur Certification Course: This course has 5 levels or sub-courses that you can do in your own pace. It teaches the whole process on how to build a website and how to become an online affiliate marketer. Every step of the course has tasks for you to complete before moving to the next.
  2. Affiliate Bootcamp Course: This course has 8 levels or sub-courses that you can do in your own pace. It teaches the whole process on how to build a website and how to become a Wealthy Affiliate, affiliate.
  3. Live webinars every Friday at 8pm EST: These are different webinars every week conducted by Jay, the super teacher of WA. These are so important, they are on different topics every week and you always learn new things and be up to date with the industry. All the past webinars are also stored for you to go back and watch them at your own time.
  4. Training added from other members on different topics: This is additional training that members or Kyle and Carson add, some are webinars and some are written trainings on different topics.
  5. SiteRubix: You get access to SiteRubix which is a website builder that will help you build your website.
  6. SiteContent: This was a feature that came out in 2017 and it allows you to write the content of your website and track it, check Carson’s announcement on it explaining it better than me!
  7. Site Feedback: Here is where you can request feedback on your site from other members. It’s very helpful and you get ideas or corrections that you haven’t thought of yourself!
  8. LiveChat: This is a 24/7 live chat to talk with other online marketers, ask questions and interact!
  9. JAAXY: This is a HUGE ADVANTAGE and feature!!! I should put it in the beginning but i put it in the end so that i can highlight how important this is! Jaaxy is a keyword analysis tool for SEO purposes! You can check keywords as well as your site rank and many more. Normally this is an independent tool that people can use even if they are not members of WA, here is my review of it. Once you join WA’s free membership you get access to JaaxyStarter with 30 free keyword searches and if you are a premium member of WA you get access to JaaxyLite with unlimited keyword searches. People who are not members of WA have to pay for JaaxyLite.

This is just the main list but the platform has more smaller capabilities that you will get to know when you sign up.

In a a very summarized way, you get access to online courses, videos and live webinars on how to:

  • Choose your niche market, what you want your business to be
  • Build your own website very easily (here is an example where they train how to build your own website in under 30 seconds)
  • Promote and drive traffic to your website (visitors)
  • Make money online
  • And more..

In addition to all this you get to interact and be part of an online family which was very supportive and motivating for me personally.

SUPPORT

You can find support, not only from the founders of the program, Carl and Kyle but also from the whole community of online entrepreneurs. There is a space where you can ask questions 24/7 and someone will answer you. There is also a support form from SiteRubix where you can open tickets and the support team will answer within 10 minutes.  You also get the instant support from WordPress if you have issues with your website. The environment is very friendly and helpful. You feel like you joined an online family.

 

PRICE

There are two levels:

  • Starter: Free. It is a simple sign up, no credit card needed, no risk. 
  • Premium: $49/per month (and you can cancel anytime – no commitment) or you can get the yearly at $359 which evens out around $29 per month.

MY FINAL OPINION & SPECIAL BONUS

Is Wealthy Affiliate worth it? It is by far the best option to build a business online and start making money, work from home or work from anywhere in the world, especially if you don’t have prior knowledge to coding, internet and affiliate marketing. Most Wealthy Affiliate testimonials you will find online are positive. I looked hard to find anything negative before joining and i couldn’t find any. You can work it from anywhere and at any time, at your own personal pace and space. I joined and i worked during my free time to build my online business and i haven’t regretted it once since. I am working for myself and making money while i’m working on it but also while i’m sleeping.

You could work part time from home and make an additional $4,000 – $5,000 per month  if you follow the training and work on your website!! If this sounds like a good idea, you may as well check it out as a first step.

Sign Up for free here and start your online business!

I fully recommend it to everyone and since Carson and Kyle (the founders) are so kind to let people join for free or even stay there for free, anyone should join to – at least – check with their own eyes what this is about and what Wealthy Affiliate can offer to you.

As a last thing from me before ending this review, i want to let you know that once you sign up for free, you will be getting a bonus. The bonus is one month of the premium membership with a 61% discount. This will give you the opportunity to check premium and decide if this is for you!

Trust me, if you were looking to start a personal online business, this is the place to learn everything you need to know about how to build it, drive customers online and make money without having to pay all these big amounts in outside agencies, so called internet gurus and costly programs. You will wish you had found this sooner.

    Kay, nice and simple information about Wealthy Affiliate. I love that you don’t overload the article with all the good stuff WA has to offer. What was really attractive about this program for me is that you can join and learn with absolutely no cost to you and no pressure to upgrade. The amount of free training is amazing, so even if you don’t stay, you still learn and take it with you.

      Hi Warren and thanks for leaving your comment. Yes i agree – that’s great that Kyle and Carson are giving this opportunity for everyone to sign up for free and check what’s available to them. As i understand you are also a member of WA so it’s great to hear from you. 

      All the best with your online goals!

    Hi Kay,

    Thank you for providing such information about Wealthy Affiliate in such a simple way. I really like the way you have presented the benefits of wealthy affiliate without over-mentioned them. What I value most about Wealthy Affiliate is that, unlike similar programs it has no upgrades. The tutorials that it offers you are so great in comparison too the price. In my opinion it’s definitely the best program in its category.

      All the best with your online business, 

      Kay

    Hi Kay, this is a really helpful review of WA and I very much agree with what you say! There is certainly a lot to get your head around with affiliate marketing, but I do think their training helps make things simpler.

    I’d be interested to hear if you’ve tried out a site called Affilorama – they’re quite similar and a little more expensive. I hear lots of mixed reviews about them but would love to hear your opinion! 🙂

    Thanks again for your review!

    • Kay L

      Hi Joshua and thanks for leaving your comment! 

      I haven’t tried out Affilorama but I’ve heard that they have a lot of upsells once you join which is unnecessary if you are a member of WA and get all the perks already for a fixed and reasonable price. Personally, I’m perfectly happy with what WA is offering to me and i’m still always learning something from their live training webinars every Friday from Jay (Wealthy Affiliate’s trainer). They have a different subject every time and there is always something new to learn for any newbie or experienced marketer. 

      I wish you the best with your online journey! 

      Kay
