What is Wealthy Affiliate?

In short, Wealthy Affiliate is an Internet Marketing community, where the users share their expertise, and help each other with their online businesses. You also have access to a wide range of online classes, video tutorials, and step by step training on how to make it big online.

Kyle & Carson, founders of Wealthy Affiliate

Founded in 2005 by Kyle and Carson, Wealthy Affiliate has grown to be a force to be reckoned with, it’s size totaling more than 700.000 members from all around the world, and it’s growing every day- making it the number 1. choice for people who want to create succesful online businesses, and the success stories are countless.

My experience with Wealthy Affiliate

When I first came across Wealthy Affiliate, I was so frustrated and angry with this whole making money online thing, I was just about to give up on my dream.

I had heard about the possibilities of making big money online, and I had decided to go all in, in pursuit of the dream of being my own boss, and making a fortune without breaking my back while doing so.

Money out the window

Needless to say, I was an easy victim for the so called “Marketing Gurus“, and before I knew it I had spent more than $1.000 without seeing any results whatsoever.

And as if that wasn’t enough, I had told all my friends and family about my plans, and when they expressed doubt, I told them “wait and see, I WILL be succesful!”

The thought of going back and telling them that they had been right… That I had failed, and that I had been STUPID, was unbearable. I became more and more desperate, which made me make even more dumb decisions, and throw even more money at online scammers.

By now I was feeling like a total failure, and my dream was torn to pieces. Some friends made fun of me, asking how my business was going, and I started to keep to myself to avoid more ridicule.

How To Make Money Online For Beginners

I was just about to give up when I came across something called Wealthy Affiliate.

I was skeptical to say the least. This sounded like another one of those “get rich quick” schemes, too good to be true!

But then I found out that it was possible to test it, without paying anything up front, and I stopped to wonder.

I could even get TWO fully functional websites, plus step by step training on how to set them up and maximize them for income, for free!

I decided to give it a go.

The first thing I discovered, was that people here were extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and eager to help. I was in a community of likeminded who all shared a common goal, to be successful online, and all were dedicated to help each other.

The trainings, video tutorials, and tools available are more then you get anywhere else, and this is just in the free packet.

Help is near

Imagine having a problem that you have NO idea how to solve, you’re just stuck. Then all you have to do is sit down and write it in the WA forum, and within minutes you have multiple solutions, from experts, at no cost!

Then there is the Live Chat! This has helped me solve a lot of problems, and I have also had the opportunity to give back some of the things I have learned. It’s just a great feeling to get to be an expert.

This is an example of a question I asked shortly after I had joined WA: Link to help page. 

That’s how the Wealthy Affiliate community works, and people here really want each other to succeed, and they take pride in helping you out.

It’s a give and take community like no other I have seen, and I owe all my success to the people here at Wealthy Affiliate.

I am now a Premium member, and I have 5 (free) websites up and running, paying me a substantial income. And best of all; I can hold my head high around my friends and family, of which some have also joined Wealthy Affiliate.

Who Benefits from Wealthy Affiliate?

I would say that Wealthy Affiliate is for everyone, but that wouldn’t be entirely true. In Wealthy Affiliate, you learn how to build an online business, how to market, and how to maximize it’s potential and income.

If you expect to become rich overnight with minimum effort, then WA is NOT the place for you. Like I said, no castles in the sky. No unrealistic promises of overnight success by three clicks on your mouse.

You can achieve great success, and earn lots and lots of money, but it takes some time and effort, but Wealthy Affiliate CAN teach you how. It’s all up to you.

All you need to do is listen, learn, and take action!

Those who benefit from Wealthy Affiliate are:

  • Anyone who wants to make an extra income.
  • People who want to get rich without breaking their backs.
  • Anyone who has some free time and is willing to spend it in front of the computer. I know of college students who built 6-figure businesses from their dorm, using Wealthy Affiliate.
  • People who are retired who want to supplement their pension.
  • People who are tired of working 9-to-5, and want to start their own business. Many of the members here at Wealthy Affiliate have quit their “day job” to work online full time, myself included.

So, it is absolutely possible to build an online business and achieve great success, but in order to do so you need to lay down some groundwork, and here at Wealthy Affiliate you are shown the blueprint for success.

All you have to do is take action. After that, the sky is the limit.

Wealthy Affiliate Training & Tools

The Training within Wealthy Affiliate is thorough, well organized, and relevant. There is training for experts and newbies alike, so even the most advanced marketer can benefit:

    Step by step training

  • Q&A Periods
  • Organized Classrooms dealing with specific topics
  • Interactive Discussions
  • Video Training, Step By Step Tutorial Training

Does this seem overwhelming? Too good to be true?

If so, it is because it really is absolutely insane what you can get here.

What Will I Be Doing At WA?

Ok, so now you’re thinking “What will I be DOING at Wealthy Affiliate? How can I make MONEY?”

Well, that is also up to you. You have the choice, to promote WA, and get thorough step by step instructions on how to do that, or you can choose your own niche to promote. Or you can do like me and do both.

  1. Hi Ossur,

    Your WA review really speaks from the heart. You started out with your personal experience which I know many can relate.

    Keep up the good work. I know many will join WA once they read a personal review from someone like you.

    All the best,


    1. Hi Rupert, and thank you for your comment.
      Yes, I am truly thankful for what WA has given me. I was broke and desperate,
      but that all changed when I joined. They restored my confidence, and my belief in the dream,
      and now, I’m living the dream and enjoying my life.

      Thanks again

    I have recently joined Wealthy Affiliate and can already see it’s one of the best decisions I’ve ever made! The amount of training is unmatched and the atmosphere of the site is so welcoming! Can’t say enough good things about it :). Thanks for covering the benefits of WA and relating your personal experience. You’re not just a number at WA!
    Best of luck to you!
    – Joe

    1. You are absolutely right Joe, and congratulations on your decision to join WA, you will not regret it.
      I could spend all day writing about the benefits, but I’d merely be scratching the surface. 🙂

      Thank you for commenting, and good luck with your online adventure.

  3. I joined the powerful platform of Wealthy Affiliate too.
    I’m highly impressed with how they have set their platform up to ensure everyone has the possibility of receiving help at any time.
    At the bottom of each training module you can ask away. Receive instant help through their live chat box and write out more detailed questions for the whole community. It’s quite amazing how many members offer help, even the founder members, Kyle and Carson have jumped in to help me out.
    Couldn’t ask for anymore,

    1. Hi Simon, and thank you for commenting.
      I agree, this really is a fantastic opportunity, for anyone who wants to build a
      business online. Having successful people, real experts, coming to your aid, is a unique
      possibility, and one I wish for everybody.
      Thanks again.


  4. Wow! Awesome review, grabbed me right from the start. Starting with a personal experience like that really grabbed me. I’m sure it was because I have had a similar experience, as I am sure everyone pursuing online income has as well.

    Now I want to go back and change mine haha. Keep up the good work!

    1. Thank you Kyle.
      I hope that it can encourage more people to join WA, and help them reach their online goals.
      I truly believe in this community.
      Good luck with your online adventure.

  5. Hey Ossur,
    man, I can relate! I’ve thrown so much money to “vulture gurus” who promoted their lavish laptop lifestyles… The worst was the dream shattering frustration and disappointment that came after, very similar to what you wrote in your introduction. WA changed all that for me too – It was nothing short of revelation.
    Thank you for this wonderfully grounded & honest review,

    1. Hi JT, and thank you so much for commenting.
      The net is overflowing with scammers, and it is so easy to get entangled in their nets.
      Fortunately, we have communities like Wealthy Affiliate, to lead folks in the right direction.
      Good luck in your further online adventure.


  6. Hi Ossur,

    Thank you SO much for Writing this post. I took action and after 3 Days I’ve already gone Premium and my websites are looking great.
    Thank you and all the best

  8. Hey Ossur, Wow, I just landed on your blog.
    I’ve been an active member of wealthy affiliate for about 3yrs now. My story is similar to you story after trying everything possible I came across wealthy affiliate. You have put together an amazing review. I can agree you that this is best opportunity for beginners who are looking to earn money online. Wealthy affiliate can teach anyone who is willing to learn from the training courses. Just by reading your Pros and Cons it set the record straight wealthy affiliate is a legitimate business. Thanks for a great review.

    1. Thank you Anthony, thank you for your comment.

      WA is definitely the place to be.

      I wish you all the best in your online adventure.


  9. I’ve been around with Wealthy Affiliate for more than a year. For those who are after get rich quick programs, Wealthy Affiliate is not for them. It’s a pretty complete learning center for creating your online business. I went from a total newbie to having some of my web contents on Google first page ranking with WA.

    1. Hi Kenny, and thank you for your comment.

      Yes, WA is indeed the place to be, with so many benefits, it’s priceless.


  10. I really agree with your review of wealthy affiliate. I just recently joined wealthy affiliate to help me with affiliate marketing. So far I found it easy to use and very helpful especially to people like me who doesn’t know anything about affiliate marketing. I highly recommend wealthy affiliate to other people who are looking for a job or a part time job.

    1. Hi John, and thank you for your comment.

      You are absolutely right! There is no other community that comes even close to WA in terms of learning how to make money online, and learning how to do things yourself.

      I would have no second thoughts recommending WA to anyone.

      I wish you the best of luck in your online adventures.
