The BEST business opportunity online – Wealthy Affiliate Review

Legit / Tuesday, January 2nd, 2018

Making money on the internet is becoming more and more popular by the day and there sure are a lot of opportunities out there. But you may find yourself asking what the best business opportunity online might be, seeing as there are tons of scams on the internet and many new others being introduced each day.

But making $6000+ monthly online is possible and you know it! You hear about stories of people making 6- and even 7-figure incomes and wonder how they do it.

That’s an income you have to create for yourself. The reality is that there are only 2 ways to make money;

1) to work for somebody else and make THEIR dream a reality and

2) to work for yourself and make YOUR dream a reality.

You working for your boss or your company, even if it is for Microsoft, for Apple, for a bank, for a warehouse; these are all making the company richer and closer to their goals, not yours. It is time to fight for YOUR freedom and YOUR worth.

If you read About Me, you will find out that I have also been scammed many times online unfortunately, and that’s because I was looking for opportunities that would make me money without any effort. The truth is, there is no such thing as becoming rich at the click or push of a button.

When I stumbled across Wealthy Affiliate, I could not believe that such a platform existed because it was all that I had dreamed of. I was finally able to really find the truth about how success is made online and that’s what I’m about to show you today.

Without further ado, let’s dive right into this review.

At A Glance

Name: Wealthy Affiliate


Owner(s): Kyle and Carson

Training: Yes

Tools: Yes

Support: Yes

Success Stories: Yes

Pricing: Starter Member (Free), Premium Member ($49 monthly or $359 yearly)

Recommended?: Yes! Yes! Yes!

My First Impressions

After reading much about the Wealthy Affiliate platform, all it’s features, benefits and what it could do for me, I decided to join to really get a feeling of what it was about. I was still a little skeptical but what really encouraged me, was that nothing much is needed to sign up: only an email and your full name.

I  felt comfortable signing up because they don’t ask you for your credit card information, like so many other companies out there, having come across many scams online.

In many of the reviews that I read, they talked about Wealthy Affiliate being a pay-it-forward type of community and I could really see it upon my first day. People started sending me welcome messages, words of encouragement, I saw success stories and people sharing tips and tricks with me.

It was really the kind of positive environment that I felt, would make me productive and the kind of community that was very helpful.


I dove right into the training, and I came to realize that Kyle made the process very easy. The simple steps to make it big online are the following:

1. Choose an interest

2. Build a website

3. Attract visitors

4. Earn revenue

steps to make money online

My first thoughts upon reading these 4 steps to success online were: 

To step 1: I do have a bunch of interests that were close to my heart.

To step 2: I don’t know how to build a website but that’s what Kyle will teach me.

To step 3: I don’t know how to attract visitors but that’s what Kyle will teach me.

To step 4: I don’t really see it as a step but the goal of all of my work.

So really, all I had to focus on was to build the website and learn about how to attract visitors to my website. This really simplified things for me, as a newbie.

The beauty that I found on this platform is that you can choose any interest and make it into a success. At Wealthy Affiliate, they believe that if there is an interest close to your heart that you promote, you will be more dedicated to it and as a result, more success will come your way. Additionally, it will be much more enjoyable for you if you are working with your passion.

Many other programs on the internet will train you only how to promote their own programs so THEY can make more money, which really sets Wealthy Affiliate apart, as you can see. Here, you won’t have to promote the platform to make the founders richer. You can choose ANY interest at all and turn it into a profitable online business.


The training or lessons are mostly video lessons, where Kyle explains everything to the T: he shows you his monitor screen and explains step by step what you need to do; what to click, what to type, what to set up and what to avoid! Each lesson also has written instructions, re-iterating most of the video lessons but these are more to-the-point. So even as a newbie, following the training is very easy.

Through out the first couple of lessons, you come to learn about a process called affiliate marketing. It may seem like a complicated term but it really isn’t. The word that really scared me was “marketing” because I had absolutely no idea how to “market”.

The simple way of explaining affiliate marketing from my point of view is the following: to recommend a product to my visitors on my website and if they buy the product or make some sort of payment, I get a percentage of what they pay. You can also call that a commission.

But the beauty of affiliate marketing is that you don’t have to go out looking for people and convince them to buy stuff from you; people will be directed to YOU and buy from you as well!

the lessons in wealthy affiliate

As a free member, you get access to the first 10 lessons, in other words, the “Getting Started” module, where you build your website by the 4th lesson and learn how to attract visitors by the 7th lesson.

The lessons that come afterwards, help you fine-tune the content on your website. You get to learn about keyword research, how to get free traffic to your website, what Google is looking for in order for you to appear on the first page of a search and so on…

So even as a free member, you get a ton of valuable information that is very newbie-friendly. You get to learn about the basics of what it takes to hold a successful website.



Most tools on the Wealthy Affiliate platform will be included within the SiteRubix menu. SiteRubix uses WordPress. Some of the tools included are available to both free and premium members, others being open to premium members only. As you will soon see, even as a free member, there is no excuse to fail in becoming successful.


The SiteManager is self-explanatory, as you will find mostly with the tools’ titles; this is where you manage all the websites that you own and host on the Wealthy Affiliate platform. It offers an overview of your website and can give you valuable information on what is happening behind the scenes and the steps to take to make your website better.

Note that even if you are a non-paying member that you can still hold a website on Wealthy Affiliate. Two, in fact. If you become a premium member, you can hold upto 25 free websites AND 25 of your own (total of 50 websites).


Another self-explanatory title, this is where you build your website. Where it used to take 30+ days to make your website live on the internet, learning code and creating your theme from scratch, it now takes less than 30 seconds and it is completely free. You are only four clicks away from building your very own FREE website!

Step 1: Within the SiteBuilder, you can choose to build three kinds of websites; on a free domain, on a domain you own or you can purchase a new domain. A domain is the name of the website, such as

As a free member, you will only be able to build your website on a free domain, and as I mentioned before, you get to host a maximum of two. Premium members get to build on the free domain, they get to transfer their own domains to the Wealthy Affiliate platform and they can also purchase new domains and host them at Wealthy Affiliate.

Step 2: If you choose to build on a free domain, please note it will be on the “siterubix” sub-domain. Your free website on Wealthy Affiliate will look something like “”, as opposed to “”.

Your next step is to find a domain name. Most of the time on a free domain, I find that the name of the website is available. If you choose to build the website on a domain you own, you would type in the name of the domain and instructions of how to transfer your domain will appear.

If you want to purchase a new domain, either because you want a new one or because you own none, you will be redirected to where you can purchase one.

Step 3: Then, you choose a title for your website. It is usually the same as your domain name but properly spaced and capitalized.

Step 4: Next, is the question of themes. Themes dictate the look of your website, which you can of course customize further as you build your website. As a free member, you can choose from 12 free themes and once you upgrade, you get a much wider selection of 2400+ themes to choose from.

AND THAT’S IT! Once you choose your theme, your website is ready to go.


This tool allows you to do one of two things; either purchase a domain or transfer a domain over from another host. This is a bit redundant as it can be accessed from the SiteBuilder too but they both go hand-in-hand. Without a domain/sub-domain, a website cannot be built.

sitedomain on wealthy affiliate


Again, the name of this tool explains itself; this section has everything to do with the actual content of your website. If you have any experience with WordPress at all, you would usually be writing your content while being logged into your back-office / admin area of your website.

SiteContent has integrated with WordPress in such a way that it does not matter how many websites you own and write for, you would be able to publish them right from the SiteContent tool. That way, you do not have to log into your WordPress admin area each time you try to write anything.

Just write away and later choose to which website you would like to publish it. What’s really cool is that it has the same feel as when you write within WordPress.

Not only can you write any article from SiteContent, but you also have access to every single article, page or post that you have ever written through it and published through it, no matter which website it is for. This makes it easy for editing or updating information on your various blogs and re-publishing it within one area.

It also gives you a ton of information such as the number of words you have in a specific article, the number of words written overall, the number of published and unpublished articles and how much more active you are with your website, compared to others on the Wealthy Affiliate platform.

SITECOMMENTS (Premium only)

sitecomments on wealthy affiliate

For better rankings, search engines such as Google look at the helpfulness of the articles written and this is demonstrated through interaction with your readers on the website, mostly in the form of comments. So this section will help you get more comments on your articles. This is an example of the pay-it-forward culture of the platform and I will go through how it works.

The first time that you try out this section, you will have a few credits that you will be able to use towards obtaining comments on your posts. Don’t worry, even if you run out of credits, you don’t need to spend any money to obtain credits or to request comments.

Just like you request comments on your blogs, others from the community will also be requesting comments and by leaving a comment on a website requested through SiteComments, you get to earn credits. Each comment you offer will give you one credit in return and each comment you request will cost you one credit.

SITEFEEDBACK (Premium only)

site feedback on wealthy affiliate

This works similarly to SiteComments but instead of requesting comments on your website, you are requesting feedback on your website from the Wealthy Affiliate community. Feedback is also important because it lets you know what others think of your website in terms of navigation, layout, aesthetics, information that can all be limited to a single blog post or to the whole website.

And again, you are given a certain number of credits to use for feedback. When you run out, you can leave feedback on other people’s websites to earn more credits. You earn one credit for each feedback that you give and it costs you one credit to request a feedback.

JAAXY – Keyword and Niche Research

To find any amount of success online, a good keyword tool is very important. It helps you target the audience looking for the information that you are providing. It increases your ranking and traffic coming to your store and also plays a key part in bringing you the dollars.

Any writing done on a website, if done without keyword research, would be equivalent to shooting in the dark; the chances of actually hitting your target are very slim.

Introducing JAAXY, the industry-leading keyword research tool, that does much more than just keywords. For my full review on Jaaxy, please click HERE.

My point with Jaaxy is that it is included for FREE within the platform, whether you are a free member or a paying member. You could also choose to just upgrade with Jaaxy (which will of course, give you a lot more features) while keeping your membership at Wealthy Affiliate free.


You can have all the training and tools necessary to succeed but what if something goes wrong with your website? What if a certain concept isn’t 100% clear to you? What if you want to go beyond the basics, make certain changes or improve your website and something goes wrong?

That’s why support is important, because without that, you would not be able to move forward. The support at Wealthy Affiliate is amazing and one of the best that I have found so far. The support structure here makes it possible to get answers sometimes within minutes. What I love is that you are not limited to one way of asking for help.

The ways that you can request support are as follows:

1. Live Chat 

The Live Chat gets you in touch with ALL of the people who are logged into their Wealthy Affiliate accounts. Everybody who clicks on the Live Chat icon will be able to see what the community needs help with and so far, I have had a very good experience.

This is by far the FASTEST way to get help on any topic. The community has tens of thousands of people online at one time, many of whom have been online (and with Wealthy Affiliate) for years and years and qualify as experts in the field.


Every single lesson has a comment section at the bottom, where you can leave your questions. A feature that is also integrated asks you whether you need help within the community and when you hit “yes”, the communty is alerted and you get the help that you need. It takes longer to get answers here but the answers received are usually more detailed than in the Live Chat.

3. Private Message

Yes, it is available here at Wealthy Affiliate. So if you want to ask a specific person for help, you are able to do so by clicking on the grey envelope on the top right of your screen.

You also have access to Private Message the co-founders of Wealthy Affiliate and ask them for help personally. They DO reply, as you can see above. KYLE is the co-founder and he personally reaches out to help you, if you need it. They are also very much active within the community, commenting and answering questions through out the platform.

What other program will allow you to communicate easily with its CEO / founders? This is exclusively only at Wealthy Affiliate.

4. Ask A Question

A lot of Ambassadors and other very tech-savvy members frequently check out the community’s questions. When you ask a question through this link, you choose the category of the question (such as if it has anything to do with social media, with SEO, with affiliate links, etc..) then the question gets posted in a classroom (category) and whoever is within that classroom at that time, will answer. This is very effective because it is very specific to the category it is placed in and the answers you get will be more accurate.

As you can see, there are tons of ways you can get help within the community. For you to get a feel of what this support can do for you in the long term, you will have access to support for the first 7 days of your free membership. Afterwards, this will become a paying feature and you will need to upgrade to have access to it.


This is the big question; all these features sound good but how much does it cost? As you know, there is a free side to this platform and there is a paid side. You can choose between two types of payments, either monthly or yearly.

If you choose to go monthly, that’s a recurring monthly payment of $49. If you choose to go yearly, it is a yearly recurring payment of $359. By going yearly, you do save $229 over the year (it works out to be less than $1 a day at $29/month).

Whether you choose to go monthly or yearly, you are still a premium member and you get access to absolutely everything! And the best part, you don’t have to give your credit card information; all payment is taken care of through Paypal.

Here is a table comparison between the Starter (free) membership and the Premium (paid) membership.

Success Stories

Pay attention to these very carefully, because these are people that have found TREMENDOUS success with Wealthy Affiliate, which proves that Wealthy Affiliate is the real deal.






The best part is, you can even contact them DIRECTLY and learn from them. These are real people with real profiles on Wealthy Affiliate who struggled with their journey online but made it through hard work and perseverance.

Reading their success story was such an eye-opener for me when I first joined, because it showed me real people, with real struggles, with real obstacles and real challenges. They didn’t show me only the glamour side of things with the money, the cars, the beautiful houses and mansions that they bought with their money.

What has inspired me, is that they kept going through their hard times and gave this opportunity their all and are now basking in the fruits of their hard work. And it is further proof that Wealthy Affiliate really works.

My last – but not least – words…

A real sustainable business, whether physical or online, takes a lot of hard work, patience and persistence. Just like a physical business needs some kind of initial investment, so does an online business. BUT, the opportunity for you to try it for free is something that can only be done online.

Now you know what you will get by signing in for FREE but one thing that I also want to mention that is that you will get access to me as your mentor on the platform. I am a VERY active member there and as long as you don’t give up on your dreams, I will be right there by your side, helping you.

I am among the Top 50 members within the platform and thus, you can rest assured that I will reply when you have questions and are stuck. And you can rest assured that you will receive very solid advice… 🙂 See for yourself within the screenshots above or below.

===> Get Your Free Wealthy Affiliate Account – NO credit card needed! <===

(Be advised that though the FREE account is available to most countries, it is not available to the following countries due to high fraud rates; Bangladesh, Egypt, India, Kenya, Nigeria, Pakistan, Philippines and Vietnam.)

Even if you have to invest, imagine making over $4500, or even $6000 + every single month, working from home like Grace, after 2 years with Wealthy Affiliate. What company would pay you $4,300+ monthly after only 2 years of service? It will take time with Wealthy Affiliate, but nobody would pay you that much even after 10 years.

Before then, if you have any questions or concerns, feel free to leave them below and I will reply ASAP. Wealthy Affiliate is a transparent community and I also will be transparent with you.

Yours truly,

  3. Hey there! I’m a college student and I’m looking for a way to earn extra money online. I heard wealthy affiliate before but I really don’t know what is it about. Luckily, I found and read your article about wealthy affiliate which is really informative and helpful. I have plenty of spare time to invest but limited amount of money to put into it. Do you think that I could do this type of business given my situation is?

    1. Hey John, thanks for visiting my Wealthy Affiliate review. Given your situation, it is still possible to make money with Wealthy Affiliate, even if you don’t want to become a premium member. In fact, you can remain a free member for as long as you like and still make money on this platform. If you have the time to learn, then I say go for it, because we all have to start somewhere. Learn as much as you can and start making money with the platform before you upgrade, such that what you are making monthly will cover your premium membership. It will take some time, but your hard work will pay off. I wish you all the best, John.

  4. Wow!
    You have laid out the complete roadmap for Wealthy Affiliate here.
    It shows how much the platform really does have to offer.
    I agree this is the best place to learn and build websites for affiliate marketing. Many successful marketers to learn from and the tutorials are step by step.

    1. Thanks for dropping by. I believe in Wealthy Affiliate and I have accomplished so much learning from Kyle and the whole community, that I dont believe I could have accomplished this through any other program. It takes a lot of hard work but at least, you have everything laid down for you and you actually understand and learn as you move along. Not to mention the earn while you learn part. 🙂 Thanks for sharing and I wish you all the best.

  5. A very thorough review. The layout of the things that wealthy affiliate can do and offers you is incredible. Your website is wonderful and well put together. This looks like a very good program that anyone wanting to get into the business should at least take a look. Thank you so much for showing me, this is somewhere that I can’s send others to, to find out what I’m talking about when I suggest that they too can go online and produce revenue at almost no cost to them.

    1. Hey Sylvia. Thanks for dropping by and for your comment. I have tried to be as transparent as I could with what the program is about and what the tools and great support look like inside. I agree, Wealthy Affiliate is the best way to get started online at no cost. To be honest, everybody starts at no cost to get to know the value that is within Wealthy Affiliate. There is no way to make thousands of dollars overnight but give it enough time and you will be well on your way. I wish you much success in your online business endeavours.

  6. What an incredible and in depth review! You have really captured everything there is to know and yourself have explained for newbies. It is a great platform for online business with so much to offer. Being able to get started at NO COST? that is very appealing. Thank you for sharing this information.

    1. Hello Christine and thank you for dropping by. I did try to include as much as I could so my readers can make an informed decision. At first, I was very skeptical too, that I could start an online business for free. It is a good opportunity to try it out to make sure that the system will work for you.

  7. Thanks for your comments at my site.
    I am only 16 days old here at WA Premium. Anyway, I am full time and want to progress asap. How long r u in WA? Where r u from?
    Your site is beautiful and simple and u have create much articles. Keep it up.


    1. Hi Ngain. No worries for the comments. I love helping out people who need it because I do feel accomplished when that person succeeds. I have been in WA for a while and I am in Canada. Thanks for the compliment and encouragement! I wish you all the best in your online ventures. Wealthy Affiliate is the best place to be to learn how to make money online. Cheers.

  8. Hi,
    Thanks for this review. I’m new to Affiliate Marketing but I need some direction on how to make it sustainable. I seem to be going round in circles!

    I would love to join Wealthy Affiliate as the training looks second to none!!
    However, I already have a website that is gaining some traction. Will I have to start all over again if I join Wealthy Affiliate?


    1. Hello Jacqueline and thanks for dropping by. Wealthy Affiliate has the best step-by-step training and the best support! I’m very happy that you have discovered Affiliate Marketing, because it is one of the best ways to make sustainable income online.

      As for you already having a website, you can transfer your domain to Wealthy Affiliate. This will only change the hosting provider and you won’t have to start over again. It will not negatively impact your website. If anything, you will be even more successful by following the training and applying what you learn to your website. It will make it better.

      I hope that I have answered your question. Let me know if you have any other questions about the program. I will be more than happy to help you out.

        1. You’re very welcome, Jacqueline. I know how hard it would be to start all over again as it could take months to really get where you are probably at with your website, especially since it is well-established already. Definitely check it out and I hope that, like many of us at Wealthy Affiliate, you find great value in the platform. As always, let me know if you need any help.

  9. Great informative post on Wealthy Affiliate! I actually just recently joined wealthy affiliate and agree with everything you have posted.

    One thing i’d have to say is their Support is absolutely awesome. I am not a very tech savvy person, so when it comes to building websites i’m bound to make a mistake and make my website not work for some odd reason (and I have done that multiple times).

    When I reach out to the support team, they ALWAYS have it up and fixed within the hour. I’ve tried other platforms out there and none do this.

    Thanks for the confirming post!

    1. That’s awesome, Cameron! I hope that you are enjoying the training. Wealthy Affiliate definitely prides itself in the community that it has to offer, not only just a community of newbies, but where experts also hang out to help out the newbies. 

      I agree that the Support Team is also one of the best that I have encountered so far. I also have had very good experiences where they were very fast in either explaining what the issue was and how to correct it, or if it was too technical, they would go in and rectify the issue themselves.

      Thanks for reading my review and for dropping by!

  10. Great review! I have been a member of WA for a little over 6 months and I have gotta say that this is easily, the best commitment that I made in my life!

    Throughout my experience trying to make money online, I have tried multiple training programs, and in my opinion, nothing beats WA.

    I found the training very easy to follow and understand. And very rarely did I ever get stuck on anything, not just because of the simple training itself, but also because of the helpful community!

    Another thing that I really like about being a WA member is the Site Builder option, which is probably the easiest and most convenient way of building a website!

    Not only is it super affordable and offers a ton of protection against hacks, but having top notch training to go along with it is absolutely incredible!

    I am currently building my first affiliate site through their training and while I had no experience in this just over 6 months ago, they made it very easy for me to get my site up and running within my first week here.

    My question is, how long have you been a part of WA and what advice would you give to someone who is just starting out here with no experience?

    1. Thank you Arie, for sharing your experiences being a Wealthy Affiliate member. I have also not encountered a community and training platform that could beat WA yet. And you are so right about the helpfulness of the community. 

      I agree, that the SiteBuilder within the platform is also one of the very best in the industry and that you don’t have to pay a pretty penny for all the features that are included. Wealthy Affiliate sure makes it such a breeze to set up your online business.

      I have only been with WA for 2 months but I have been making money online for the past 3 years, using other methods, like eCommerce and on marketplaces. 

      The advice that I would give newbies who are trying to enter the online entrepreneur group, is to be open and soak up information, like a sponge, and to put everything learned into practice. If you are not opened minded enough to learn the ropes, you will not execute properly, which will lead to poor results. 

      Thanks for dropping by and for your comment!

  11. Great Review.. i signup under your link but the sad part is the Free Starte Accounts are not available here in Philippines. Btw, may i know your Exclusive Bonus? Please email me the details. Thank you

    1. Hi Charvin. Thanks for reading and I am glad that you have found this review helpful. Thank you for signing up and for bringing this issue to my attention. I’m sorry you are having difficulty signing up. Let me find out what is happening and why you are not able to sign up with Wealthy Affiliate. I will get back to you as soon as I can. Thanks for your patience!

    2. Hello Charvin. I was able to find out the reason why you are not able to sign up.

      There are a handful of countries that are not eligible for a free membership and they are Bangladesh, Egypt, Ghana, India, Kenya, Morocco, Nigeria, Pakistan, Philippines and Vietnam, the reason being that there is a high level of fraud from these countries. I am sure that the owners of Wealthy Affiliate are trying to find a way around it though, as it is unfair to be penalized for the bad actions of others i your country.

      If it can be of any help to you, I want to still advise that if you can invest in at least the first month to try it out, then you should! It is a program that has changed my life in more ways than one. The benefit is that there are no penalties for cancellation, and you can cancel at any time, plus you get access to the whole website, which would not be possible with the free membership.

      Additionally, as soon as you cancel, you are given 30 additional days to move your work / website somewhere else as this is your property. Therefore, you can still keep applying what you learn from Wealthy Affiliate while hosting your website somewhere else that is cheaper.

      I hope this helps!

  12. Hi Reyhana,
    What a thorough review you have here. I must say also this is the best platform I have ever found online. For such little cost, the amount of tools and support and community help you get is just unheard of anywhere. As your post indicates it truly has so much to offer and the fact it is free to check out is just brilliant.

    1. Hey Sharon. Thank you for taking the time to go through the review and for leaving a comment, although you are part of the Wealthy Affiliate community. I also really appreciate you confirming how great of a platform Wealthy Affiliate is. I totally agree with you; Wealthy Affiliate has got to be one of the most legitimate platforms online, that really deliver on their promise of teaching you the ins and outs of making money online. I too started with the free membership but it didn’t take me long to upgrade, because all the features included are so worth it!

  14. Hey there,

    I have just created a website with the website building plugs on your post and it has worked. I have also created an account with wealthy affiliate.

    Thanks for the actionable post here.

    One question though, how long can I keep the website live on the web a a free member? And am I able to change stuff on it as a free member?

    1. Hi Dave.

      I’m very happy that you took action and rest assured that you have joined one of the best training platforms for your online business. Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

      Those are great questions! As a free member, your free website will be live as long as you want it to ! You are not forced to upgrade to keep it live, you are not forced to pay even a single dime. You are able to customize your website as you would any website, and make it your own.

      The training at Wealthy Affiliate will show you how to build it up from the first step so there is nothing that is missed.


  15. This was a very in-depth review about wealthy affiliate. Being a member myself, I can tell you really know a lot about it — and that you’ve covered everything they offer inside.

    I’ll will also testify that this program is 100% legit and if you really want to make money online then this place can help you.

    1. Michael, thank you for dropping by and for sharing your experiences. 

      Than you for affirming that Wealthy Affiliate is 100% legit. There are some negative reviews online bashing this program only to promote their own. But nobody who has tried the program has ever had anything bad to say about it.

      So that’s why it is impossible for those bashing the program, to know what the program really has to offer, other than you and me, who has been members and have really tried it out.

  16. Hi Reyhana,

    Love your post about Wealthy Affiliate.

    May i know if i could remain as a free member and make money online with its free website? Until am financially stable will i then sign up for its Premium Membership.

    Hope to receive your clarification.


    Best regards,

    1. Hi Cheryl. Thanks for dropping by and glad you enjoyed my post.

      To answer your question, yes, you can make money online with the free websites offered. You can even remain a free member forever if you want to.

      However, because of the amount of advantages and progress you can make with going premium, I would definitely recommend that at some point down the road to upgrade, because you will be able to progress faster with your website and make more money.

      Referring others to Wealthy Affiliate is not the primary way of making money, you can choose any topic you wish to make money from, but let me tell you that if you refer only 2 people to Wealthy Affiliate, that will be enough for you to cover your monthly premium and thus you will be able to benefit from the premium training.

      Hope this answer helps.

  17. So, if I understand correctly, this is a place that can host your website as well as provide training on building an online business? For $1/day, that’s seems like a good deal. Never heard of such thing before.

    What publishing platform are they using and what’s the storage capacity like? Thanks for the clarification.

    1. That’s correct, Cathy. For $1 a day, it is really a good deal when you think about hosting as well as all the training that you get. Even after you finish your training, there are always updates that come and live training every week to keep you on top of best strategies to get you more for your money.

      When it comes to the platform, they use SiteRubix which integrates with WordPress. The bandwith can support upto 500,000 visitors to your website per month, which is more than enough for most people, even the more successful ones. Hope this answer helps.

  18. Hi, I’m a fresh high school graduate who wants to earn money while studying at college. I visited this review when I saw your review on Hive Micro. Unfortunately, WA says that
    “You currently do not have access to the Members Area. To enable your account and gain full access to Wealthy Affiliate, please upgrade to Premium membership by clicking the button below!” when I logged in and I can’t proceed with training. I’m from the Philippines, by the way.

    1. Hey Dorothy. Thanks for reading my review on Hive Micro.

      When it comes to trying to sign up for your free Wealthy Affiliate account, there are some countries for which a free account is not available at the moment unfortunately. This is because there is a high amount of fraud that originates from there. I personally do not think that it is fair for genuine people to be penalized for the bad work of some, but I’m sure the owners are trying to find a way around it.

      Rightnow, the only way for the people of Philippines (and others, such as India and so on), is to sign up for the premium account for the first month at least. With the free account, yes you can remain a freemember forever, but some of the premium features are only available for you to try for the first 7 days. Going for premium for your first month will give you a better understanding of how the platform works and gives you access to a ton of support and tools that the free account will not.

      If you want my opinion, if you are not able to create a free account wherever you are in the world, it still is VERY MUCH worth it to still pay for premium the first month and try it out for the full 30 days. There is no penalty to cancel your membership. You can cancel at any time.

      I hope this helps.

  19. This looks like a solid platform for learning affiliate marketing.

    After reading through your review I can say that I have not seen another training course online that offers as much for this price.

    How long does it usually take to get through the course material and get a website up and running?

    1. Chris, thanks for dropping by and for reading my review.

      I totally agree, that the price is very much worth the material, tools and all the support you get within Wealthy Affiliate. You cannot find better bang for your buck anywhere else.

      To answer your question, you can go through the course material at your own pace. Everybody’s lives and present-day priorities differ, which means that not everybody will finish the training at the same time. That’s what’s great about Wealthy Affiliate; you are able to go through it at your leisure.

      I have seen people who finished the course within 2 weeks and others who have taken a year or more to complete it. It’s up to how much time you have on your hands to dedicate to learning.

      As far as the website building goes, you can have one up and live within 30 seconds! The platform is so easy to navigate and the training is very easy to understand. 

      I hope this answers the question.

  20. I think this information is beneficial when you are deciding which is the best option to have an additional income, mainly when it is as detailed and complete as your offer in this article.It allows you to see various aspects of a program of this kind. It is necessary to think before making any risky investment because you can lose money and time, that’s why it is essential to learn all these details before signing. Thank you!

    1. I agree with you Tommy.

      You do have to look into every single opportunity very carefully, especially if you have to invest into it because it could very well be a scam. If it is, then you will never see a dime of what you paid ever again. It will be gone with the wind!

      The great fact about Wealthy Affiliate, is that you get to try it out for free and never have to give your payment information if you don’t want to. You can enjoy your free account for a lifetime and still earn some income with it.

      Thanks for dropping by!

  21. Hi friend,

    Your article was very thorough and I was just enjoying reading it. You did such a good job in your review of Wealthy Affiliate.

    Indeed if there is an online training platform out there that is better or surpasses what we are experiencing within the Wealthy Affiliate platform, then I’m yet to discover.

    As you said, Kyle and Carson, the owners of this awesome community and very caring people. And they are always interested in helping people. I remember the first time I came to the community and the WELCOME message I got from Kyle and other members who c\heered me up and encouraged me that they are all there to help if I ever need help.

    As for the training we get on the platform, it is just incredible. I hereby highly recommend this training program to anyone looking for a way to make some income online.

    Thanks for sharing. You inspired me.


    1. Stephen, I really appreciate you dropping by and leaving your experiences with Wealthy Affiliate.

      It is indeed very encouraging and positive when you have support from the whole community. I also love the training Wealthy Affiliate because it is comprehensive, not to mention that you can also learn from the experts who have been with Wealthy Affiliate for years!

      I’m glad you enjoyed this review and I wish you much success!

  22. Hi Reyhana

    I really enjoyed reading your Wealthy Affiliate Review and how you have found a good training program that is legitimate with lots of support.

    If I were not a member already, I would join up!

    Wishing you all the best and also hoping you become successful as you put in consistent, smart work.

    1. Stella, thanks for dropping by and for reading my review. Yes, I definitely am lucky to have found this program before I got robbed of ALL the money I had left. It didn’t feel nice to get scammed all the time.

      Now that I have written this review, I am really hoping that I can help others discover this GREAT platform, and give it a shot. It is one of the MOST legit ways to make money on the internet after all. The training is phenomenal as you have seen within the review and it is really a one-stop shop for EVERYTHING that you will ever need when it comes to your online business.

      I’m glad you found Wealthy Affiliate too and I wish you all the best with your online journey. I’m sure you’re as excited as I was, when I found out that there REALLY existed a platform that was not after our money.

      Thanks for your well-wishes and I also wish for your success!

  24. Hi Reyhana,

    I’ve been looking for reviews on freelance sites, hivemicro included, which led me to this post of yours. I’m a blogger from the Philippines and it’s sad to know that I can’t avail of the free account of wealthy affiliate. I’ve a question though… is it okay to join wealthy affiliate using a website hosted in other platforms, like blogger or wordpress? TIA for the response.

    BTW, thanks for the comprehensive review of hivemicro. 🙂


    1. Hello Kryss. It’s nice to meet another fellow blogger.

      Thanks for reading my review on Hive Micro and of Wealthy Affiliate. I’m happy that both my posts have enlightened you.

      I have to say that I have seen a couple of people from the Philippines that have been able to sign up to Wealthy Affiliate for free. I would suggest that you try clicking on the link and signing up for it to see if it works. Official announcements of changes to the list of exempt countries hasn’t been announced so I prefer to add the disclaimer just in case.

      Wealthy Affiliate does use WordPress but it does not work the other way around, unfortunately. WordPress does not use Wealthy Affiliate, so you won’t be able to sign up to Wealthy Affiliate by any other means.

      But do try to sign up through the link as for some reason, I’ve had some people from the Philippines that were able to sign up. Who knows, it might work for you too.. 🙂

      I hope this helps.
