If you’re reading this page you’ve probably heard about Wealthy Affiliate and want to know what Wealthy Affiliate is all about, if it really works and I suppose you want some proofs too.

I think you are in the right place since I’ve been a premium member of this program for almost two years and I know from my personal experience how the program works and know many successful members of this community.

But I’m not going to make any bold claims or give you any false promises. I’m going to tell you things I’m 100% sure about without any exaggeration.

First off, Wealthy Affiliate is not the only program of this kind and there are similar programs, such as Chris Farrell, Bring the Fresh, Affilorama and SiteBuild it. All of them are legitimate and teach the same thing, i.e. making money online through affiliate marketing.


In my opinion, Wealthy Affiliate is the best program for a number of reasons:

  • Wealthy Affiliate training is simple to follow and understand
  • There is a free trial
  • Live chat
  • Instant Support
  • Weekly live webinars
  • Access to the founders of Wealthy Affiliate, Kyle and Carson via live chat or private message
  • High quality web-hosting + free websites
  • Access to thousands of free training modules
  • Site comment feature (available only at Wealthy Affiliate for premium members)
  • Keyword research tool




What is Wealthy Affiliate all about?

Wealthy Affiliate teaches folks how to make money through affiliate marketing. Affiliate marketing is one of the most popular and proven ways to make money because:

  • You don’t need to develop any product
  • You don’t need to provide a customer service
  • You can earn from 6% up to 50% commission per sale


Your task as an affiliate marketer is to:

  • Build a website
  • Find a program/product (there are thousands of them on the web)
  • Write a description about your product
  • Add your affiliate link
  • Bring a lot of traffic to your site and start earning revenue


WA training shows you how to do all this and believe me you don’t need any special computer or programming skills to complete these simple tasks. Even if you get stuck at some point you can always get instant support inside Wealthy Affiliate from:

  • Me
  • Kyle and Carson (founders of Wealthy Affiliate)
  • Thousands of other WA members who are very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable


How does Wealthy Affiliate exactly work?

Free membership

First off, you can join Wealthy Affiliate absolutely for free which is awesome because very few programs allow that. As a free member you get access to WA community, get 2 free websites, get access to the first 10 training modules that will allow you to get an idea of what you can expect from the program.





You will also get access to a live chat within a week and thanks to it you will be able to ask questions in real time. You can also ask questions from me by visiting my profile within WA and by leaving your questions on my profile and I will be happy to answer all your questions.



Premium membership

If you decide to upgrade from free to a premium account you will get access to the whole Wealthy Affiliate training: Certification Course and Affiliate Bootcamp. Both trainings are super awesome and I honestly recommend to go through both of them.

Certification course consists of 50 lessons and Affiliate Bootcamp consists of 70 lessons. It includes both video lessons and text tutorials and after each lesson you need to complete a task.





If you follow lessons without skipping any of them you won’t have any questions because WA training is designed in a simple and newbie friendly mode.

Anyway, if you have any questions you can post your questions inside the community and in most cases you will get answers to your questions within minutes or even seconds. You can also contact Kyle and Carson and they will be happy to help you out.





Training program

Officially, Certification Course is designed for those who want to build a business based on their passion, i.e. you can build a travel site or promote electronics or sell perfumes etc.

It depends on your interest. Affiliate Bootcamp is designed for those who don’t have any specific interest and they just want to promote Wealthy Affiliate to other people and make money from it.

Being a member of Wealthy Affiliate for almost 2 years I can honestly recommend you to go through both training modules, especially Affiliate Bootcamp training. It gives you more profound knowledge on affiliate marketing, making money and traffic methods.




Wealthy Affiliate is different

Before joining Wealthy Affiliate and going through WA training you must know that WA is different from many other programs that make you false promises about making money online.

They promise that right after joining their program you can start making thousands of dollars a day with a few clicks of your mouse and even promise to give you your very own cash machine that will be making you money on complete autopilot. Of course they are lying to you and it’s a complete waste of time to listen to them.

Wealthy Affiliate approach is very realistic and Kyle and Carson never make any bold claims to anyone and that’s why you will never come across any negative reviews about Wealthy Affiliate on the web.

It takes time, hard work and patience before you start making serious money from your website. That’s why, if you are lazy and not willing to work hard towards your bright future then Wealthy Affiliate is not for you.

All legit programs, such as Chris Farrell, Bring the Fresh, Affilorama or any other program teach you the same thing. That’s why if you want to start making money on the internet you need to stick with any of these programs to be successful some day.

Another option is stick with a program that promises you unrealistic earnings, chase after your dreams and waste your time and money with no results. Another option is forget about making money online and find some regular job in real word.


How you can achieve your goal

Traffic is the key

To achieve your financial goal WA provides you with a set of tools that help you get top rankings in Google search. Once you start using them you can get your website appear in top search results of Google in a couple of months and start getting a lot of free traffic, i.e. real visitors ready to buy your products.

Traffic is the key to your online success because if you have a free traffic you can make money without spending any money at all. Since Wealthy Affiliate training is designed strictly in compliance with Google guidelines you will never lose your website rankings due to Google ranking algorithm updates.



Keyword tool

To know which keywords can bring you a lot of traffic WA provides you with a keyword tool and by using it you can find unlimited number of keywords which means unlimited number of ideas and each idea can potentially bring you tons of free traffic and tons of sales accordingly.



Site comments

Site comment feature is a new feature designed for Wealthy Affiliate premium members so they can offer comments for other sites (WA members) and request comments for their own website. You’ve probably seen web pages with a lot of comments, i.e. engagement.

Engagement in the form of comments on your website is a key component to ranking in Google. By using this feature available only at Wealthy Affiliate and only for premium members you can boost your website rankings and get more traffic which leads to more sales.


No upsells inside Wealthy Affiliate

The best part of Wealthy Affiliate is that compared to many other programs that throw tons of upsells on you, even legit programs, all these tools are free for premium members of WA and included in your membership price. That’s why I prefer this program over any other program out there.


Wealthy Affiliate success stories

Wealthy affiliate success stories is the best proof that WA training works for those who are willing to follow it and work hard.

Though many other programs, even legit ones promise you unlimited wealth by following simple steps, Kyle and Carson, founders of Wealthy Affiliate never do that even for motivational purposes.

Since I’ve been a premium member of WA for almost 2 years I know many successful members that could quit their job thanks to WA. But they have been working really hard before they quit their job. On average it takes 1 year for decent results and 2 years for good results to be able to quit your daily 9–5 job.

Still I don’t want to mislead you or give any false promises. It all depends on how much effort you are ready to invest in your online project. You must be persistent, hard-working and patient. Here is a link that takes you inside Wealthy Affiliate where you can read reviews of Wealthy Affiliate by WA members.

I think it’s the best proof that WA is really awesome program. Members are free to express their opinion and no one forces them to say kind words about WA.

I’m successful too and making money with my website thanks to WA training and support.

Below I’m going to give some brief info about successful WA members:

Note: Don’t take this info as a guarantee of earnings

You can also read Wealthy Affiliate success stories by following the links below and learn how success makers describe their success themselves.

Story 1

Story 2

Story 3

But remember that all these people have worked really hard before they achieved success. You can achieve the same or maybe less than that. Remember that everyone is different and results will vary from person to person.

All these people, i.e. Nathaniell, Eddy, Frank, Steve, Shawn etc are making money through affiliate marketing. All of them are promoting WA program and make money from it but they do also have websites in other fields. Some of them are also making money through Google adsense, Amazon, CPA marketing, Website design, etc.


My Success

Look at the images below. The first one shows that my website traffic is steadily growing and I’m getting now over 200 visitors a day from search engines. On the second image you can see that I’m making money on a regular basis. It does show only some of my earnings.









The bottom line is this: If you follow Wealthy Affiliate training and work hard you can achieve success and become your own boss. When does it happen? I don’t know, it depends on how soon you will start working towards your success.

If you don’t take action today you can’t expect any good changes tomorrow. Anyone can change their life. These people have changed their lives with Wealthy Affiliate and you can change too. The question is: How badly you want it? Only YOU know the answer to this question.

I hope these WA success stories will inspire you and you will become one of these success stories some day. You can read my full review of Wealthy Affiliate or create your free account and start taking the advantage of this awesome program and become a part of this amazing community.

    I’m recently started here at Wealthy Affiliate and I will vouch for it 100%. Everything you learn here is so unique and amazing and the best part is that it is all in just one place. Everything you need to know to succeed is all right here. You just have to be willing to take the time and the initiative to do what your being trained to do.

    It’s just amazing how they walk you through everything step by step and I honestly just love this site so far. I can’t wait to see what waits for me when I keep doing my courses and learn all that there is to know.

    • Rufat says:

      I’m glad you’ve started with Wealthy Affiliate. That’s true. Though not everything, but almost everything you need for your successful business is here at Wealthy Affiliate. You just need to focus on your business and make it a priority. If you take it seriously you will be able to achieve most of your financial or business goals. Yes, it takes time, effort and patience. But any success offline or online requires this. Nothing comes the easy way. When it comes to the amount of money you can make it depends on many factors and no one can guarantee you anything. Some members at WA are making serious money while others are making a few hundred bucks.

    • Jo Flintham says:

      Hi, I am yet to start and am still deciding if this is for me. How many hours per week do you generally dedicate to the course and your websiite?

    • Rufat says:

      Hi Jo,

      If you are a goal oriented person and want to start building a real business online and give it a time then I think it’s for you. You can’t build a business for one month or two. The course is good and you can take it at your own pace. The minimum time required to dedicate to your online business is at least 7,8 hours a week if you want to achieve something that is worth your time and effort.

  2. Willam says:

    sorry for the rude bashing just now, was kinda pissed and lost my cool. But i might still consider premium after i do more research into it. So how did you succeed through by doing the bootcamp? i still find it difficult like i stated earlier. do you publish content regularly?

    • Rufat says:

      No problem William. I understand you. If you want to join WA and give it another try you can do it. The best part of WA is that they never promise you that you will start making x amount of money in x amount of days. They are honest. Any business, online or offline takes time! I had no much luck with Google rankings in the first two years though I had some and in fact was making money from the second month of launching my site. Now, I’m doing alright. I started PPC traffic (paid traffic) as an addition to my free organic traffic and now I’m profitable. I’m now making $500 -$600 per month, sometimes I double this amount and my business is growing. I already have my strategy and I strongly believe I will be making WAY more by the end of this year. Remember that bootcamp is a very competitive niche and you should give it a time. You better start with other niches because it will be much easier for you to succeed. Read this article on my other site and I hope it will help you.

  3. Chris says:

    It’s great to see this article. I thought I’d throw my own testimonial in there. I first signed up with WA about 6 years ago but had to leave due to my second job ( musician ). I signed back up again about 3 years ago and now I run 5 websites for a living…near enough on autopilot these days! The perfect place to learn your trade, I owe all my success to them. One word of warning though is to beware of misinformation in the community. I’ve noticed that some members have the best of intentions but are often very wrong!

    • Rufat says:

      Great to hear that you’ve been with Wealthy Affiliate for many years and are making a good income now. It definitely gives its members an excellent eduction and opportunity to build a success online. I always recommend it to my visitors.

  4. Martha says:

    Thank you Rufat for a wonderful review on WA. You know i’ve tried different training programs like affilorama or site build it, and as you say they are legit, they do not have the same motivation community like WA does.
    I kinda got bored and not quite motivated to continue, in my particular case, with SBI. When i found out about WA, i had a strong feeling that this one was different. With a stronger and more efficient strategy for teaching and being in constant comunication with a big friendly community that take you by the hand step by step, through a wonderful journey of building an online business.

    • Rufat says:

      Good to know that you have experience with other online business communities. I agree that Wealthy Affiliate is WAY better than any other programs out there. Like you, I’m happy to be a part of WA and it does really help a lot in terms of motivation. I’m glad you like my review and thank you for the comment.

  5. Yuko says:

    Hi Rufat,

    Thanks for sharing your online journey with us. I have read many positive reviews about Wealthy Affiliate but was not quite sure how much you could actually make with it. Your success story here is very convincing and I am very convinced to try that for myself.

    Was it hard to start out, though? I am not even close to be a tech savvy and do you think I can still make a steady income like you as long as I keep working hard on my project? Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you.


    • Rufat says:

      Of course you can. My results are very average to be honest. If you work hard you definitely can achieve it. There is no guarantee in any way. No one can guarantee. It’s not hard. Just follow the training and apply the knowledge. Someone can make thousands of dollars a month, someone a few dollars. Wealthy Affiliate shows you how to make money and provides all the knowledge and tools and the rest is with you.

  6. Leland says:

    Wonderful job summarizing what Wealthy Affiliate is all about! I’ve been involved in several different “systems” online and now write about them on a regular basis in my blog. A blog which is hosted on the Wealthy Affiliate platform!

    After running around the proverbial internet marketing “bush” I wouldn’t recommend any other system. The creators and the people who have been with the system for years are always around to support the newer members!

    This site alone is a testament to what it’s members are capable of. Keep up the fantastic work at getting the word out there. If anyone wants to try their hand at making money online, the only thing they need to start is WA.

    • Rufat says:

      Thank you Leland for stopping by and leaving your valuable comment. I really appreciate it. Like you I was involved in different systems and bought many products online that promised to make me rich and of course none of them worked or delivered on the promises. I have now enough experience in internet marketing and I know what works and what is not worth your time and effort and my job now is investigating programs and exposing scams and showing people real opportunities. I support you and agree that Wealthy Affiliate though not perfect and not the only legit program but it’s definitely one of the best programs out there I can honestly recommend to anyone. I think there are two major reasons why this program still works and produces many success stories. It’s because their training is always up to date and teaches only proven methods and the second reason is because their support is supreme. If it was not their supreme support many people would leave the program. And I agree that their site is the best testament that Wealthy Affiliate works. No upsells whatsoever, no BS. Only quality training, networking with like-minded people, helping folks and getting help whenever you need it. The people I mentioned above have been able to achieve success thank to following WA training and now they are helping others too. I think anyone who is willing to work hard in order to achieve success online should join Wealthy Affiliate without looking back.

  7. Neil says:

    This is a really great and well written comprehensive review of Wealthy Affiliate. I can honestly concur with all that you say about it. It has been one of the best decisions I have made joining WA and the community here are absolutely fantastic. I would urge any sceptics to give the free trial a try and I can guarantee you’ll be impressed by the quality. It really is first class.

    • Rufat says:

      Thank you Neil for your nice comment. It’s good that you decided to leave a comment on my post and it proves one more time that Wealthy Affiliate is really a good program and provides not only a top notch training and tools but it also provides an excellent support which is really important if you want to achieve success online. I totally agree that Wealthy Affiliate is a fantastic community it’s really worth trying out. Like you I can say that it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made in my life.

  8. Todd says:

    Another really good review. It’s always a pleasure to read your posts, as I can see you write honestly and for the reader. It sounds like Wealthy Affiliate is the number one place to go for those interested in affiliate marketing. I am about to embark on this, so i will be taking a look at the free trial membership to test it out.

    • Rufat says:

      Hi Todd, Glad you enjoy reading my reviews and find them engaging and honest. Yes Todd, in my opinion Wealthy Affiliate is one of the best programs out there and can help anyone make money online. But it can help only those who are willing to work hard towards their success. The program provides all you need for achieving success. It provides an in-depth training, active community, support, tools, live webinars, up 500 free tutorials literally on any subject, live chat etc. You can contact co-founders of the program and get support from them via private message, ask them to take a look at your website and give their valuable recommendations. If you want to learn affiliate marketing Wealthy Affiliate would be your best choice and I honestly recommend it because I’ve been part of it for 2 years now. I do recommend you to take a look at their free trial and I believe you will like it. You are free to cancel your free membership at any time and unsubscribe from everything. Success stories that I described here should motivate you but not mislead you because success doesn’t come fast or easy. It takes time and hard work and having the right mindset.

    hello, hope the website is doing well for you! its very descriptive I like how you sectioned it into parts! One nice thing you may can add is WA offers web tools to build your website with wordpress. Your pictures and videos are good also, with a good bit of different categories, and a nice bit of posts to show your audience your active with them!

    • Rufat says:

      I’m really happy that you like my website which means a lot to me. I created different sections to make it user friendly and so anyone can find what they look for. It’s true that Wealthy Affiliate provides different tools which are great but I don’t want to confuse my readers because most of them are looking for info and answers to their burning questions, not tools.
