Wealthy Affiliate Review, My Personal Experience — 26 Comments

  1. Hi Robin,

    I really don’t know what more I could add to this, you have outdone yourself in explaining what WA is all about and how it works. Being a recent member there, I can attest to the quality and abundance of information to learn from there. The video lessons are fabbo, and the folks there, well they just seem to jump at the chance to lend a hand, an ear, or an idea. Great review!


    • I agree about the video lessons, Traci. 🙂 I didn’t actually discover their worth until I had been at WA for a while. Seeing that most were more than an hour long, I never had the time at one stretch. But once I did watch part of one and I’ve been watching them regularly (in segments) ever since. They are jam packed with useful information. And about the folks there… I can’t agree more. 🙂


  2. Robin,
    Lots of information on this site about Wealthy Affiliate. The program sounds as if it is the way to go if you do not have a dedicated time frame to work on this daily and do not have a lot of funds. The fact that there are update alerts sometimes before they go live are a great advantage to this group of Internet Marketers.

    • Yes, John. In my opinion, this program is the way to go when you are starting from scratch, and have a flexible schedule and limited resources. It lets you get your foot in the door with all the support you can imagine!

  3. I first came to know about this site from you. I guess this is not a scam as you said. I am going to try this.

    • Hello Bindia,

      From your email address, it looks like you are in India. If that is the case, it is unfortunately one of the countries from which you cannot access the free account to get started. When you make an account it tells you this and gives you the option of a monthly or yearly fee.

      Wealthy affiliate is not a scam, I can promise that. But it is also not a get rich quick scheme. It takes work and time to start making money. I love it there and have learned a lot over the last couple years.

      Check out my FAQ page, question 10:

      If you are interested and want to put the effort and time into it, I’d say to try it out for a few months (you can’t achieve much in 1 month) and see. But if you don’t think you will be able to put in the effort, think twice about investing in it.

      I hope you do try it out – I just wanted you to see both angles since you can’t try it for free first.

      Best of luck and will be happy to see you there if you do join.


  4. I completely agree. I love Wealthy Affiliate. I work on my websites in my spare time and it’s super easy to learn from everyone in the community. Everyone is very open and easy to contact, I’m learning new things every day about things I’ve never heard of. I have a cooking site and I take pictures as I cook for my family and then work on my site at night when my daughter sleeps. Easy peasy. I have never found anything this easy and flexible. There’s no marketing apart from social media that is needed so you don’t have to feel stuck trying to find a way to get people to come to your site. Love, love it and I recommend it for any mom wanting something to do for your sanity and for some income.

  5. I am blown away by your review Robin! You have covered every aspect explaining what WA is about. Great job! I’m seven months into my niche website and have been giving bootcamp serious thought. You’ve inspired me to go for it. I’ve been a bit nervous about it, I must admit, so be sure that I’ll be knocking on your door for help often.

    • I’ll be happy to help any way I can. I have to admit that I’m a bit addicted to WA… Don’t have a lot of time to put into it, but I really enjoy the time that I do.

  6. Robin, I am a stay at home mom and manage to find the time to build my site. You’ve done a great job here of showing stay at home moms it is possible to earn online income in between all the mom things we do.

  7. Wonderful and informative! I think your explanation of WA hit the nail right on the head. I am a stay at home mom of two kids – 3 and 1 years old. I work on my website about 18-20 hours a week. It’s amazing what I have learned and accomplished in only 4 months. The best thing about this career opportunity is the flexible schedule. I work for 2 hours during nap time and then 1-2 hours in the evening after the kiddos have gone to bed. It’s great opportunity and I’m really glad I found WA.

    • The flexibility is a great plus… in fact that was one of the main reasons I joined. I was searching for something online that I could do in any spare moment and WA allows that! Yes, it is a great opportunity. 🙂

  8. Fantastic information. Being a working-not-from-home Mom I’m always looking for opportunities that allow me to work from home. You’re review is so informative and doesn’t leave any questions unanswered. So many work-from-home businesses force you to pay for the information before you even know what you’re getting yourself into. Your post is very helpful. Thanks so much!

    • I’m glad you liked it. The fact that you can start out for free and continue for free until you decide to go premium or stop is a great boon. One of the main reasons I joined was because I was able to see what I was getting into beforehand.

  9. Robin,
    I agree with you completely! I wish I had known about WA when I was an at-home-mom, because I certainly would have signed-up then! Even with having something to do every waking moment, it would have been easy for me to squeeze in the time necessary to start my business back then. As it is, hind-sight is 20/20 and after being back in the workforce for several years, I’ve finally taken the leap! And, WA is easy to squeeze into my current schedule, too. So, whether you work as an at-home-mom (and it IS work) or you work outside the home, you CAN start you’re own online business. And, after trying different programs myself, I can honestly say that Wealthy Affiliate is the BEST program out there! Thanks for a great review!

    • I agree Beckie – squeezing WA into my schedule works because of the way all the lessons are broken down into little tasks. So even when I can’t complete a lesson (which I rarely do at a single stretch), I can at least do a task. This really helps you know that you are getting somewhere even when you just do a little at a time!
      I’m glad you liked the review.

  10. Robin,
    I am new to WA however I can tell you that I agree with you and it is a great place to learn. I had a website hosted by someone else and I really didn’t have control of the content, I moved it to WA and now I can put exactly what I want on it. That is great.

    • Yes Brenda, having complete control over your content is a great plus – and to have the option of working on it when you want and where you want is really great too!


  11. Hey Robin, I have found a wealth of knowledge at WA. It has taken me to where I need to be in building my website. I have become addicted to the interaction between the members of WA. So much to learn and so much support. Without WA I wouldn’t be where I am today.


    • Hi Lindsey,
      There is definitely a wealth of knowledge at WA. When I first joined it was a bit intimidating! But the training has continued to evolve and improve, and I think it is much easier now not to get that information overload if you just stick to the courses when you are just getting started. The training + the support at WA = easy learning!


  12. Well done here Robin, I think you covered every angle of W.A. that I can think of. You are so right about everything that is offered, even at the free ‘Starter’ level. My first website was up and running long before I went from Starter to Premium.

    My only real challenge starting out was that I had no previous knowledge of any of this website stuff and it took a while for me to realize all of the help that I had available. Once I did get familiar with ‘Live Chat’ and how to use the ‘Search’ function, it all took off nicely for me.

    The free Starter option is absolutely awesome. Literally, there is nothing available on the internet that can compare. Great review, Robin!!!


    • Thanks Randy. 🙂
      I also really like the fact that the free starter level is available for as long as you want. It takes the pressure off – when I first joined it was only free for 7 days and I wasn’t in a position to go premium right away. But Kyle did arrange to have the website I had started at that time remain ‘alive’ until I was able to go premium. I was quite impressed by that.


  13. I totally agree that Wealthy Affiliate is something you can do in your spare time being a stay at home mom myself. I often work on it at different moments throughout the day, when I have some spare time. It’s amazing what you can achieve in these short bursts of concentration and focus 😉
    Greetings, Sandra
