I came across Wealthy Affiliate in March 2016, after I had been searching for real ways to make money online from home.  I knew there were opportunities out there, but I didn’t know where to start from.  I had tried building my own website for free some 4 years before, but that led to nothing concrete at all.  I had also come across a couple of scams, which luckily I came out unscathed from.

Then, there it was, one of the many reviews on Wealthy Affiliate available on the web.  And I tried, and tried, and tried again, for days, to find one that would scream to the world that Wealthy Affiliate was a big scam.  And the more I looked for negative reviews of Wealthy Affiliate, the more good comments I kept finding.

Was this ever possible? Was it too good to be true? Well, to be honest, they said it was free of charge to join, so I had nothing to loose. And I clicked on this banner:



Wealthy Affiliate is a community platform founded by Canadian co-owners Kyle and Carson back in 2005 – two young chaps who met at college whilst studying Computer Science, and started their partnership into realising their dream starting from nothing.  This online platform has a wealth of knowledge through online lessons, tutorials regularly published by members and the 24/7 support offered by the great Wealthy Affiliate virtual community, which, believe you me, is second to none.

So, really, whether you have had previous experience of monetising from the internet in the past, or like me when I joined, if you have no clue whatsoever where to even start from, this is the right place to be.  Giving it a chance costs you nothing. And I mean NOTHING!!!



The clue is in the name.  Wealthy Affiliate will teach you to create your own website and to promote issues, ideas, products, and all that you are passionate about, whilst monetising from it.

When you join Wealthy Affiliate FOR FREE, you are welcome with personal messages from Kyle and Carson, as well as from a myriad of other members of the community, who all invite you to find your feet by taking a tour of the website.  By signing up, you will create your My Wealthy Affiliate account.

From there, you are invited to start the Online Entrepreneur Certificate course, which consists of 5 Levels of 10 lessons each,  This will be your golden opportunity to learn all about:

  • how to create your website on a niche that you are really passionate about
  • how to market your products or blog
  • how to monetise from it by promoting it and by attracting traffic to it.

The secret is in following the lessons carefully.  Kyle will hold your hand through finding the niche, or subject, that you want to share your knowledge with others about, and in turning it into content writing for your website.

You will be taught how to ‘speak up’ (in writing, of course) about a specific product, or about a specific subject, to the Whole Wide World of the internet, and to get an income from it by becoming an affiliate marketer.Affiliate Marketing

Wealthy Affiliate is not at all about earning quick and easy money.  Have you ever been employed in any other capacity where you have seen money grow in your pocket overnight?  Wealthy Affiliate, and online affiliate marketing, are not in the least different.

It will take commitment and hard work of a few months before you start seeing your first income through promoting services and products, for which you in turn receive commissions.  But trust me, the sense of achievement as you realise that the fruit of your hard work is finally bringing in some cash which you then see grow to substantial figures as time progresses, and that is actually tickling viewers’ interest, is second to none!!!



So, who is Wealthy Affiliate best suited for? Well, absolutely ANYONE that is interested in working from home, part-time or full-time, and wants to have a go at making an earning through online business.

Whether you have already had experience of online marketing, whether you already are an affirmed internet entrepreneur wanting to expand your knowledge, or whether you have absolutely no clue of internet business and how to make a living out of the internet, Wealthy Affiliate is the place to be.

Wealthy Affiliate caters for all levels of expertise, as through lessons and  the invaluable support of the Wealthy Affiliate community, you are in control of how fast you want to progress in your learning curve or in the development of your website and of your business.

You could be a degree holder, or you may never have been gifted with academic skills as you are more of a ‘hands on’ practical person, Wealthy Affiliate suits all walks of life, and is easily accessible anywhere and everywhere you have access to an internet connection, whether you are comfortably sitting on your sofa typing away on your laptop or an ‘on the go’ person who primarily uses mobile devices such as your phone or tablet.



If you google for reviews on Wealthy Affiliate, you may find the word ‘university’ associated to this platform not for nothing.  Wealthy Affiliate has a wealth – pardon the pun – of training, which is second to none.

Training is organised through an Online Entrepreneur Certificate course, whose first 10 lessons are readily available to absolutely everyone for FREE.  But this is not the end of it.

More training is offered through:

  • weekly training classes
  • question and answer live chats and interactive discussions
  • organised online classrooms
  • tutorials regularly posted by Wealthy Affiliate members

Don’t let the use of words such as classes and training and courses put you off.  You will not be required to sit exams or tests.  You will however be required to complete tasks, which will be solely aimed to you working on your website.  The ‘proof of the pudding’ will be in whether you are attracting enough visitors to your website – and if you are not, you are not going to fail anything, other than maybe ask for more advice on how to make your website more appealing.

In addition, Wealthy Affiliate offers free of charge access to SiteRubix.com hosting domain platform to all members, where as a Starter member you can build up to 2 WordPress websites.

As a Premium member, you can have up to 25 free of charge websites on SiteRubix.com, and you can equally build up to another 25 websites using your own domain for a small yearly fee directly to WordPress.

Mind spinning, isn’t it?!  But if all the above was not enough, Wealthy Affiliate offers:

  • FREE access to Jaaxy keyword search tool
  • SiteContent writing tool
  • access to over 2,400 different website templates
  • 24/7 technical support

In other words, once you are a member of Wealthy Affiliate, you really do not need to go anywhere else to build your own online business, as Wealthy Affiliate offers you all the tools and services that you need to turn your venture into a success.



Let me spend a few words on the Wealthy Affiliate community.  This is another feature of Wealthy Affiliate which I found second to none – truly one in a million!!

The lessons are great within Wealthy Affiliate.  Likewise all the tools and services closely guide you to building your online business.  But at times you can still get stuck and need the help of somebody who has been there at the starting point like you now.

That’s where the Wealthy Affiliate community steps in.  With over 800,000 members, advice through online discussions, Q&A feature, live chat, are all readily available to you 24/7.WA community

You can contribute to the Wealthy Affiliate community by posting regular blogs yourself, where you can outline your experience, where you went wrong and how you solved a problem. Or you can use the same tool to put a question to the community.  You can also approach community members by private messaging them.

And finally you can take advantage of the support of the Wealthy Affiliate community by reading / watching tutorial that members post regularly, which are often of extreme value as they guide you through technical processes step by step.

But the cherry on top of the cake is that Kyle and Carson, yes the CEOs, are contactable within the community.  And like all other members, they will promptly respond to any however trivial comment or query you put to them.  Well, to me, getting 1-to-1 direct access to their expertise in itself is priceless!



And that brings me nicely to the subject of costs.

Wealthy Affiliate offers 2 types of memberships.

With the Starter pack you join Wealthy Affiliate free of charge – yes, I mean it, FREE OF CHARGE!! And with the free Starter membership not only you gain access to a total of 10 lessons through the Online Entrepreneur Certificate course, but you are walked step by step through the creation of your own website and your own brand, you are taught how to market and promote your niche and to monetise from your website, you are introduced to the community and to their support, you have access to the free of charge domain host SiteRubix.com where you can build up to 2 websites, again all for free, and where you get technical support 24/7, you get to use the keyword search tool for free, and so much more – well, you name it.

But Wealthy Affiliate has more to offer with the Premium membership.  At $49 per month, or $359 per year, this type of membership offers you full access to the Online Entrepreneur Certification and to the Affiliate Bootcamp training, which includes 7 levels of 10 lessons each.  This is the real gem of this platform, where you learn all about affiliate marketing and how to earn money from your online business.  Being a Premium member also secures you unlimited use of Jaaxy keyword search tool, unlimited 1-to-1 coaching, up to 50 websites, and much more.  In other words, the one-off monthly or yearly fee avoids you all the extra expenses of maintaining your website, extra fees for accessing tutorials and for joining other keyword search platforms.  The Premium membership is what you need if you really want to push your business forward, and believe you me, for the $49 a month you get a real wealth of opportunities!!


At the risk of sounding biased, I truly believe this is the best teaching platform to set up your online business.  I feel I can safely make such declaration, as I have been there before and I know that what Wealthy Affiliate gives you, whether Starter or Premium member, you do not get anywhere else.

Yes, I have tried other free of charge options – all you are given access to is basic templates of website, and nothing else.  It is left to you the job of populating and marketing your website.  And if, like me at first, you have no idea how to do either, well then you are stuffed.

Not only that, but no other platform gives you access to the invaluable support by its community as Wealthy Affiliate does.  Or if they do, it is certainly not for a mere $49 a month, but for a much higher fee.

If there is a negative to being a member of Wealthy Affiliate is that sometimes you get too much.  Every day you will receive emails to prompt you of new blogs posted on the platform by other members.  You will otherwise be alerted to new training just been launched.  The amount of information that is offered to you can become overwhelming, especially if you are a newbie.

You will then need to become selective, and sieve through the information made available to you, so that you expand your knowledge progressively rather than trying to take too many details in all at once.  That would not work.



I do believe Wealthy Affiliate is a winning combination for both ignoramus like me or professional entrepreneurs to set up a solid and successful online business whilst working from home.  Wealthy Affiliate is 100% legit and offers you ‘what it says on the tin’.

And I do believe in the teaching powers of Wealthy Affiliate so much, that I am prepared to offer you a BONUS if you join today:

!!! Join Wealthy Affiliate today and receive 61% discount if you become Premium member within 7 days!!!

All you are left to do is join Wealthy Affiliate and give it a go.  Let me know what you think of the experience and whether you are prepared to take that leap of faith by upgrading your membership to Premium at a discounted rate of $19 for the first month.  If it sounds too good to be true, well it is all for real!!!

As I am a Wealthy Affiliate member and affiliate, you may be thinking that it is in my interest to promote this scheme and my review may be bias.  It is not, as my mere interest is purely to share with you the community where I have finally landed after rummaging aimlessly from experiment to experiment to no avail.  But if you still think that my review is intentionally bias, let me leave you with some recent testimonials directly from the Wealthy Affiliate platform: click here to access them.  I hope you enjoy the reading, and by all means leave your comment below to let us know what you think about Wealthy Affiliate, if you have concerns or if you have similar positive (or not) experiences.

  1. I can definitely vouch for what you’re talking about here regarding Wealthy Affiliate. As a Premium member, I am already making money online in my second month, just click on my link and see my Income Report for Oct 2016. The training is incredible, the community is more than helpful. I’ve tried affiliate marketing 5 years ago without them and failed, and now I’m so glad I have them by my side to work with to build what I’ve always wanted, passive income!

    Anyway thinking of building an affiliate marketing business needs to at least check out Wealthy Affiliate as a free Starter member!


    1. I couldn’t agree more Grace. I’m glad that you left your testimonial on my page, as in an ocean of online scams, people may think that this is yet another one, when in fact it is the complete opposite.
      Thanks for your input. Giulia

    2. grace am a free starter though stuck would you please be in position to assist? thanks Emmanuel

      1. Hi Emmanuel, when you say you are stuck, can you tell me which type of business you have attempted? Are you trying to set up an online business? The starting point should be for you to have your own website, which you can use as blogging platform with affiliate links, or as a selling site where you promote items via affiliate links again. Let me know more. I shall be more than happy to assist you 🙂

  2. This is really interesting. I’ve just started my own blog and I think that the information that you’ve provided regarding Wealthy Affiliate will really help with me going forward. Really hoping that I can get more people coming to my site, cause I’m loving making the content. Thanks for your post!

    1. No problem at all Adam. It looks like you got caught by the same bug I got, the ‘hidden writer in you’ bug 🙂 I wish you all the best with your blog for a successful online marketing career.

  3. A great review on Wealthy Affiliate and you have sold it to me.lol. I love the way that you have written it out from a personal point of view mate, and it adds the “real” element to it, which happened to be just what I was looking for. So many of these scams do not have a personal kind of testimonial to them, so kudos to you.


    1. Thanks Simon. That’s exactly what I’m aiming at, trying to make readers understand that Wealthy Affiliate is the real McCoy, as I should know and have been on the receiving end of scammers, and can now see the difference.
      Thanks again for reading. Giulia

  4. Hi Giula, love your post on wealthy affiliate. As a premium member, I can totally agree with you. It is an amazing place with so much support. The lessons are easily explained and you learn an incredible amount on setting up your website. Thanks for this.

    1. Not at all Sharon. I’m glad you feel like me, and I’m glad you mention the ease of approach the lessons and tutorials have. The word ‘lessons’ may sound off putting for some who may imagine this as an academic experience. It is not like that at all, as in fact the whole process is very much hands on.

  5. Hi Giulia,

    A very good and accurate description and overview of Wealthy Affiliate. I have to agree with all that you are saying, I tried many things before WA and I had read many comments and posts on it before I joined. Having being bitten by scams in the past I was naturally dubious. All I can say to anyone who is not convinced is to just register for free there is never any pressure to upgrade to premium but I am sure like me you will soon see the value of WA and will want to be a premium member.

    1. I couldn’t agree more Craig. The Premium option is there for you to take, but you are never told you have to. And there are plenty of testimonials of members who have put together a successful website by remaining Starter members.

  6. Hi there! I just finished reading your Wealthy Affiliate review and thought I would just share my thoughts with you. I can relate to what you are saying here very well as I have been a member of WA for just over 1 year now! How that first year has flown by. I totally agree with you when you say that the training inside WA is second to none. I tried various online training systems for learning internet marketing and every one was basically the same. Wealthy Affiliate is like a breath of fresh air! There is no hype and no over the top promises of overnight riches! I can confirm everything you are saying here. And I for one have no intention of leaving WA any time soon.

    1. I’m glad you share my views Andrew. I would not want my readers to think my job here is merely to promote. This is not the case, as it is my mission to deliver my reviews as honesty as I possibly can based on my experience. And like you, the experience I have had with Wealthy Affiliate has been absolutely brilliant!

      Thank you :

  7. Even if there is some information overload, are you able to take things at your own pace and even go back to trainings? I imagine that’s a good problem to have because it means there is tons of value with membership. 🙂

    1. Oh absolutely Sarah, and that is only something that personally I experienced in the first 4-5 months. By then I was trying to increase the pace with posting regularly on my other website as well keeping up speed of going through lessons and other members’ blog. Now I feel much more comfortable with the whole system, as I have learnt to moderate myself and to keep in control of what to go for day by day. What you get from Wealthy Affiliate is truly second to none!
      Thanks for reading. Giulia 🙂

  8. Reading through your review, I found that your experience greatly reflected my own with Wealthy Affiliate. I would certainly recommend that anyone considering starting their own business online at the very least takes advantage of the free Wealthy Affiliate account. Even with that alone you can find yourself leaps and bounds ahead of others!

    1. I couldn’t agree more Sharon. As you say, trying out the free of charge membership does not cost anything in terms of wasting time and efforts – you have nothing to loose. And I’ve heard of many members that have built a successful basic online business as starters.
      Thanks for reading. Giulia

  9. I have been searching for many years ways I could make money from home only to run into scam after scam. I gave up for awhile but have been hearing about Wealthy Affiliate lots these days and it does sound like a legitimate company with great support. I will definitely be giving it a go. Thanks

    1. Your story, Erin, sounds very similar to mine, as I too gave myself a break after being unable to come across anything that either demanded money, or that was free of charge but too good to be true. Wealthy Affiliate for me was a revelation. I tried it as with the Starter membership I had nothing to loose, and got hooked up immediately. Wealthy Affiliate’s genuine intentions of wanting you to succeed and their wanting to arm you with all the best tools to achieve are truly second to none, and you realise this as soon as you are part of its big family.
      Let us know how you get on, and wish you all the very best! Giulia

  10. The volume of people that wealthy affiliate has speaks for itself, and this community is growing more and more every day because of the business model that really gives person a chance to get their feet wet without investing any monies and deciding if this is what you really want, the prof of how good the training is is in the fact that wealthy affiliate has over eight hundred thousand members. So for anyone who wants to start a home base business with their internet, this is the best place to start.

    1. Absolutely Norman, I couldn’t agree more. And, as you say, the model is risk free, for the fact that it is free of charge to try out or to pursue to higher levels.

      Thanks for showing an interest in my review, Norman, much appreciated
