slice the pie


The first fact I want you to know about Wealthy Affiliate is that there are no bad reviews about this program on the web and I don’t believe you can find any complaints about it simply because they, the founders of the program, Kyle and Carson never make any false promises to anyone about making money on autopilot and their support is really supreme.

If you doubt my words you are free to Google “Wealthy Affiliate + complaints” or “Is Wealthy Affiliate a scam?” If you find any real facts I do ask you to send me an email with this info or leave your commens below.

But I’m sure you won’t find any facts. I can show you tons of images, i.e. screenshots but I don’t want to waste your time. I will show you only two of them and I think you will be happy with this info.

If they stay there it’s because there is a good reason for that and it’s because they have been scammed in the past and now they feel safe inside Wealthy Affiliate. Wealthy Affiliate was founded in 2005 and its legitimacy and efficiency has been proven through years.

Absolutely. Actually it has helped me build my website ( and start making money. I don’t want to show you my earnings or brag because it can be very misleading. If I make money it doesn’t mean that you will be making money too.

In order to start making money you need first to:

How much will it cost me?

Premium membership is $47 per month. If you choose a one time yearly payment like I did it will cost you $359, i.e. $29 per month. I think it’s absolutely affordable compared to many other programs that will cost you a few thousands of $. I forgot to mention that your first month will cost you $19.

    Hi, I have been a member of Wealthy Affiliate. Its a pretty rad site. It easily outclasses any type of “guru who will give you the secrets to weath”. Every thing here is easy to navigate through, the lessons are insightful, and if you have the ability to take action, and the patience and willingness to learn, the sky is the limit here! Thanks for your review.

    • Rufat says:

      Hi Jacob,

      Thank you for the comment on my post. I’m really glad that you’re like me a member of such a great online business community. Thanks to this awesome environment, we are safe from “gurus” and wasting our time in the wrong direction. I believe Wealthy Affiliate is a great place to start an online business and thanks to it I’m running my websites and my business is growing gradually. We just need to be patient while we learn, apply the knowledge and start seeing good results of our continuous online efforts.

  2. Imogene Holiday-Connor says:

    What are the terms/conditions for terminating my account should I join, become a premium member, and then later decide this business is not for me?

    • Rufat says:

      If you decide to upgrade to a premium account, your first month will cost you $20. You can terminate your account at any time. But there is no refund for $20. It’s because you try the program before you decide to upgrade. I think it’s fair enough.

  3. Milena Saveva says:

    WA are not what they appear to be.
    I suggest you delete the 2 sites who being made a starter members in WA
    They do not give 2 sites.
    I’m a starter member in WA and laid so hard to write reviews of programs and to build the site. After six months I received and Google index.
    But because I have no money to become a premium member, my site was disabled.
    WA warned me 15 days ahead that will deactivate my site because I’m not serious about building a business and hosted sites on their platform will be provided for interested people who are serious ( who will pay the fee for premium membership)
    So now I have no website.
    Let’s not exaggerate.

    • Rufat says:

      Hi Milena, First off all, welcome to my site. I agree with you. Let’s not exaggerate. I’ve been a premium member of Wealthy Affiliate since 2013 and I know what I’m talking about. WA gives you 2 websites. This is true. And they give you free access. BUT did I say that they give you free access FOREVER? Did I say? I think it’s fair enough that you’ve been a member for 6 months. Is that not cool? And I believe the community was very helpful too. Anyway, I contacted Kyle regarding you and I will post an update here once I get a reply from him. My best wishes to you.

    • Milena Saveva says:

      Thanks for the reply Pufat
      Indeed in WA is not specified that these two websites are given for to try program and are not forever
      You’re absolutely right.
      WA is a good platform for training as far as I see as a starter member.
      But no free lunch. Its true.

    • Rufat says:

      Milena, you have had your free lunch for 6 months. Right? I think it’s fair enough.

  4. Ellen says:

    Hi Rufat. I am also a member of Wealthy Affiliate. I am very impressed how you really give all the facts to your readers. Wealthy Affiliate is by far one of the best programs out there for anyone wanting to get started in an online business. You provide lots of very helpful details allowing people to make an informed choice.

    • Rufat says:

      I agree with you that Wealthy Affiliate is one of the best programs out there and thanks to this program I’m making money. Sure, it’s not perfect, but it’s really worth the money you pay. Their training material is very realistic and up to date.

  5. Jeffrey Siegel says:


    Thanks for your WA review. WA is an amazing organization. Although I am new to the internet marketing industry, I’ve found WA to be an incredible wealth of knowledge. It has helped me build my first website and I am excited about the future.

    I wish you all the best!


    • Rufat says:

      Wealthy Affiliate is my favourite program since I’ve come across it and I have to agree that it puts much emphasis on quality education and support which are essential for online success. Before Wealthy Affiliate I didn’t know anything about wordpress, building websites, creating quality content, keyword research, SEO strategies and I learned all this from WA. Community is very helpful, the founders of the program Kyle and Carson are very helpful and responsive too. I’m really happy that I’ve found this awesome community and now I recommend it to everyone looking for a quality and reputable money making program on the internet. I believe your future will be bright and you will be successful internet marketer if you follow Wealthy Affiliate training and stay patient until you achieve success.

  6. Chloe says:

    As a fellow member of Wealthy Affiliate, I agree with all that you’ve put in your post.
    I think that it’s really hard these days to distinguish yourself from scammers on the internet, which really is a shame for the industry.
    One of the things that I love about WA is that there is no promise of riches. That’s right: this is not an automated system, or a get rich quick scheme. It’s simply a training program to teach you how to start and run an online business- nothing more, nothing less.
    I love the transparency that comes with this mindset, because you know exactly where you stand.
    Just my opinion, of course! Thanks for sharing such a thorough review, and good luck with your business.

    • Rufat says:

      Yes, Chloe, I totally agree with you and to be honest, this is exactly what I love most about Wealthy Affiliate. They never make any promises to anyone that they can become rich in a matter of days because there is no way to become rich overnight. They provide real training and real support and the rest is with you. If you are willing to follow the training and apply the knowledge you will achieve success and there are many successful members inside Wealthy Affiliate who could quit their regular job thanks to this program. Till now it’s the only program that I’ve come across that is worth the time and effort. I’m glad we are of the same opinion regarding WA. Legitimacy of Wealthy Affiliate is so obvious that anyone who joins the program can understand it in a few seconds.

  7. christian wijaya says:

    Hi Rufat. Your site is very informative and you have excellent written about what is wealthy affiliate. I have follow step by step easily. Based on your opinion, if I have joined wealthy affiliate, should I join another affiliate online course? I want to find keyword also, because I have found no keyword tool outside, Do you have any recommendation for me? thanks

    • Rufat says:

      Glad you found my article helpful. No, you don’t need any other program if you are just starting online because Wealthy Affiliate provides everything and their membership price includes everything. To be successful online you need a top notch training on affiliate marketing and it is available inside Wealthy Affiliate. You need all necessary tools, such as website builder and keyword research tool and all this available once you inside WA. You need supreme support and it’s available inside WA. And even there is a live chat inside the community. Later when you complete WA course and start making money because WA training mainly focuses on SEO and social media methods, you can buy some other quality email marketing course, such as Autoresponder Madness in order to take your business to another level. Remember that email marketing is very important for your online business and in fact the foundation of any business is SEO and email marketing. Anyway, for now Wealthy Affiliate is the only thing you need to start online on the right foot. Let me know if you need any help and I will be happy to help you out.

  8. Tomas Bishop says:

    I might just have to get involved with WA.

    Everyone is talking about the program.

    I guess I’ll sign up and see what the fuss is all about.

    • Rufat says:

      Hi Tomas, Thank you for showing interest in the program. I recommend to try it and I hope you will love it. It’s absolutely free to try with no obligations afterwards. Remember, you can ask unlimited number of questions once you’re inside Wealthy Affiliate. You can ask me at any time and I will be happy to help you out. Be active because only who take action will get the reward.

  9. Olalekan says:

    Good day Mr Rufat
    I stumbled on your website when I searched for reviews on Walter green’s millionaire blueprint programme, thank so much for the honest review you just saved me 200 bucks. I’m interested in the wealth affiliate program, I’ll like to know if it’s a worldwide thing, I’m Nigerian and I’ll like to be part of the community.

    • Rufat says:

      Hi Olalekan, Good to know that you liked my review and found it helpful. And it’s good that I was able and lucky to save you from Walter Green’s scam. If you are interested in Wealthy Affiliate program it’s good and the program is legit. If you haven’t read my review I recommend to do so before you join. If you did then you can create your account. Yes, it’s worldwide but some countries have limited access due to massive fraud and hack attacks. If you can’t create your account let me know and I will help you. Just let me know.

    • Olalekan says:

      I’ve tried to register Mr Rufat.. But my country is not supported.. Pls if there is any way you can be of assistance.. I’ll really appreciate it

    • Rufat says:

      I will try to help you with the registration but it can take a few days. Come back to my site in 2,3 days.

    • Rufat says:

      Hi Olaleken, I had a talk with responsible man and he told me that due to a high % of fraud, system gaming and etc people from Nigeria can’t create free account at Wealthy Affiliate. But if you create a paying account, i.e. decide to pay immediately for the first month, $19 then you can create your account without any problem. Let me know if you have any questions.

Along with this article, you find the pros and cons if committing to wealthy affiliate. Very good income advisor 🙂 Cant wait for more articles! Thanks!

    • Rufat says:

      Thank you Hagop for your comment. You are right, Wealthy Affiliate has united like-minded people of all ages and they are working towards their success helping each other which is really great. I tried to show all pros and cons of the program to help folks make an informed decision. I hope with my income advisor 🙂 I will be able to help a lot of folks by saving them from scams.

  11. Ken says:

    I have been working with the WA program for a little over a year after leaving another company that was much more money, I have compared the two along with a few others. WA is the best bang for the buck. No other training program helps people right from the start. It is designed for people at every level.

    • Rufat says:

      I absolutely agree Ken and Wealthy Affiliate is one of the best program out there. The best proof that it’s one of the best programs is that the founders, Kyle and Carson put much emphasis on helping folks and that’s why they allow people to try their program absolutely for free. I don’t know any other program that gives you free access like Wealthy Affiliate. Kyle and Carson are available almost every day and anyone can contact them via live chat and ask any question. They have created inside WA atmosphere of mutual assistance and care which allows many people achieve success online.

  12. Diana says:

    Great post. It’s enlightening to see a product that helps you create an online business, without the empty promises of making you a millionaire overnight. I feel anyone and everyone can benefit from something as powerful as Wealthy Affiliate because it is so diverse. From web hosting to affiliate marketing training I see why you stand by this product. Thanks for sharing.

    • Rufat says:

      You are right Diana. Inside Wealthy Affiliate you can find literally all you need to build a successful online business and of the main reasons why I love this program is because the founders of the program, Kyle and Carson never make any false promises to anyone and that’s why no one who is inside Wealthy Affiliate expects wealth overnight. This program is really powerful and provides you all you need, from a hosting to affiliate marketing course and if you have a desire to learn and work you will certainly achieve success.

  13. michelle says:

    Great post, very informative. I’ve been trying online marketing for a few years now myself. I can honestly say WA has given me that “homebased” feeling I was looking for.. It’s very hard trying to go it alone, and with all the scams out there it only makes it that much harder. With reviews like this it has made searching for legit offers so much easier. I haven’t came across any negative reviews myself about WA. Thank you for posting this! Michelle

    • Rufat says:

      Thank you Michele for your valuable comment. It’s good that you post a comment here being an experienced internet marketer because this serves as a proof that you are honest and give honest recommendation. I agree that Wealthy Affiliate is very warm community that unites thousands of like-minded people ready to share their experience and help each other achieve their online goals. I agree that it’s very hard to do things alone when it comes to building an online business and especially with so many scams online. And I agree that there are no negative reviews of Wealthy Affiliate on the internet and it proves again that this program is absolutely legit and free from scamming people.

  14. Heidi says:

    wonderful information and such detail!! i like the fact that you have links to all aspects of wealthy affiliate. I love reading your articles. I was wondering if there was a way to add comparisons? I think that would really add to your content


    • Rufat says:

      I’m glad you like my articles and I hope I can keep posting often to let my readers have the best information possible. As for comparison chart I understand what you mean and I always use them when writing reviews. When it comes to my present article, about Wealthy Affiliate my intention was to help people learn some facts about WA and learn if it’s worth paying for. That’s why I decided that was no place for using comparison chart in this article.

  15. Angel says:

    Dear Rufat,

    Another great Article from your website. 🙂 I enjoyed each and every word out of it. 🙂 WA is great, it is like WhoIsGuard from Namecheap in that it safeguards the person inside. WA holds to a high standard that it was built to help people succeed online and protect them within the community to avoid being scammed by all the other lies/deceptions of many online programs that want nothing more than a person’s hard earned cash. And, like you said Kyle & Carson allow you the privilege to try WA for free, they don’t push the person trying to figure out something new by demanding money the first time around. It is totally generous of them to allow 2 membership options here. Free and Premium, I only hope I can stay as a Premi for years to come. 🙂 My parents don’t think I can do it, but I want to believe I can do it. 🙂

    Thanking you,

    • Rufat says:

      Thank you Angel for your kind words and I’m really happy you found my content engaging and helpful. That was my intention 🙂 As for Wealthy Affiliate I totally agree with you that the founders of this awesome community are doing their best to help us succeed online and protect us from falling for numerous scams out there. They allow folks to try their program for free and by doing so they allow people feel that not everything is a shiny product that promises you a sky but in reality is just another empty promise. And I think that by doing so they give you a chance to be a part of such an awesome community which means they put much emphasis on helping folks first instead of making money off them. There are no doubts that Wealthy Affiliate is legit program and it’s really well worth the price you for it in order to become a premium member. And I hope Angel you will be able to stay a premium member for many years to come.
