Hey there, just the other day someone asked me “What is wealthy affiliate for anyways?” I couldn’t believe my ears. It has been on my mind since and I came to the conclusion that there still are people out there that have no idea about WA and the tremendous value it can bring to your life. So let’s kick it off…
Ok, So Who Is Wealthy Affiliate?
Wealthy Affiliate started back in 2005 by founders Kyle and Carson. Kyle is Marketing Chief Co-founder and Carson is Design Chief Co-founder. First, they started off developing a keyword research tool, which is called “Jaaxy”. Jaaxy is the number one keyword research tool used amongst the WA community. And rightfully so.
I have tried using several keyword research tools and this one is the most user friendly & easily accessible. If you want to read more about Jaaxy, how to search keyword websites for free, and more about the features click here.
Wealthy Affiliate came about when they realized that there really weren’t any good solid training programs out there offering people to learn the ins and the outs of starting a niche blog site and monetizing properly to earn revenue. The market was becoming saturated with scams and people were very skeptical of the internet business world.
So, then it was decided, Wealthy Affiliate University was born!
What Is Wealthy Affiliate For
The main objective with Wealthy Affiliate is to teach how to become an amazing content writer. To understand the power of keywords and how to target them in any niche, the correct way to write blog posts including specific word count, number of titles, and overall structure of content making it the best experience for the reader.
In order to monetize a website, you must have control of the way the content is distributed across the pages. The reader should have no guesswork or struggle to try to locate what they are looking for. It is the only real way to help solve a problem through a digital interface platform. The only real way to distribute value with the power of content is for it to be relevant, rich, delivered at the right time, and directly to the point.
Content marketing is also a major part of captivating an audience and allowing the content to do the heavy lifting. You can read more about content marketing here. It comes down to simply developing a good content marketing strategy and keeping everything relevant and captivating so your audience stays with you through the entire sales process. And that is where all the training modules start to pay off.
A Little About Me
When I first joined wealthy affiliate I was all over the place. Because I didn’t follow the blueprint, I ended up leaving and trying other opportunities. And then after about 8 months of headaches and throwing away about $4,000 to gurus that claimed they had the secret to affiliate marketing and monetizing a blog site, I found my self right back where I started.
I came back too Wealthy Affiliate and it was the best decision I have ever made. I have been back for about 5 months now, and I have 2 very successful blog sites. One is in the make money online & becoming financially free, and the other is in the Self Development niche. In about another month or two, I will be able to finally relax and just focus on my online success and continue to scale higher and higher. And none of this would have been possible if it wasn’t for the community here at Wealthy Affiliate!
Unique Quick Growth Hacks
One of the ways to get your website to be ranked by google and other search engines is to show interaction with your audience. So, they created a section in WA where you can submit a recent blog post and other members of the community will read it, and then comment at the bottom of your post where the comment section is. Then you can also accept other members’ requests for comments and submit comments on their posts which shows google major audience engagement!
When you give someone in the community a comment you earn 1 credit (which is equivalent to 1 dollar) and when you want to receive comments it takes 2 credits. So you see, as you comment for others, you earn points that can also be transferred into cash, or used to request more comments on your posts. This will result in you getting your blog post ranked with search engines much quicker as your showing engagement with your readers. Additionally, it will also help your site become an authority faster. Pretty cool Hugh?

What You Get When You Join WA
Like most membership sites, there are different levels depending on what type of membership you chose. But I’ll explain all that in a minute. I will say that the coolest part about Wealthy Affiliate is that you can earn as you learn!
I have yet to see another program that teaches you the ropes of making money online with the full potential to earn revenue during a free trial period. No CC required, completely risk-free.
But of course, to maximize your earning results, you would start at $29.92 per month for those paying annually (a 39% saving), and rising to $49 per month for payment on a monthly basis. Now, this is the regular standard membership.
Then there is the recommended Wealthy Affiliate special offer “Premium membership”, where you only pay $19 for the first month and then it increases to the $49 per month. So there are several opportunities to try the platform, ask questions within the community, and make sure it is a good fit for you before you fully commit.
Training Available At Wealthy Affiliate
At Wealthy Affiliate, there are two very important courses that are detrimental to your success with your online business. “The Online Entrepreneur Certification & The Affiliate Boot-Camp Training”.
When you first start with WA it is strongly recommended to start off with the “Online Entrepreneur Certification”
- The OEC consists of a 5 phase (50 lessons) series of courses walking you through the process of creating and growing a business within absolutely ANY NICHE you want. You will learn about targeting low ranked keywords, finding the low hanging fruit, structuring a blog post in a way that will entice all search engines to rank your site more efficiently, and much more.
Next, jump right into “The Affiliate Boot-Camp Training”
- The ABC Training is a 7 phase (70 lessons) series of courses walking you through the process of creating and establishing a business related to a niche and leveraging affiliate networks to earn a substantial revenue. Also, you will learn how to promote Wealthy Affiliate which helps spread the word of this amazing platform for years to come.
Between these two courses alone, you are destined for success. 100% FACT. I am living proof of it. The rest of the training is for you to increase your knowledge and scale your business to the moon!
Then there is a section called “My Training Activity” & “Training HQ”
- My training Activity – is a section of (11 courses) all with several lessons in each course. This is a section where you can explore your resources available to you and choose an area you want to improve on. I.E. Diamond Traffic Program, How to become an expert in any niche, The customer purchase life cycle, and much more!
- Training HQ – here you will find training modules from WA designed for specialized member training. You can either scroll through all the courses (which would take a long time), or you can just search for what you are specifically looking for.
Additional Education With WA
Classrooms – Finally there are classrooms. Classrooms are where other members of WA can host their own classes and teach members ways they may do things differently. This is where I believe the community really shines through. It allows members to expand their knowledge and to also teach others to learn skills they may have never heard of before.
Tracking Your Progress
By the time you are complete your training, you have your first business built. After you have learned the infrastructure of the business model you then move onto the framework of your new business. This is where you will make adjustments and fine-tune everything while continuing to add content to your business.
Hosting And Technology
In addition, WA thrives on their capability to outperform all other hosting providers out their, period. Unlike any other hosting platform in the world, WA offers all clients “double hosting“.
In other words, your websites have full redundancy, meaning that if one of your websites were to for some reason go down, WA has a “mirror” of your website running at all times that they can swap in, instantly. This layer of redundancy keeping your site always live is unparalleled in the industry.
Built on a framework used by major companies in the world including the likes of:
Whether you are just getting started within the online space or looking to grow several businesses to new levels, WA’s hosting platform (called “SiteRubix”) is a major part of their capability to offer such bold statements.
People are running a million-dollar business on their platforms. With an average page load time of “1.3 seconds” and not to mention because of their innate knowledge of the intricacies of WordPress and the security vulnerabilities that can occur within the platform they are able to prevent hacking or spam before it even happens.
This is not a quick get-rich scheme, but an opportunity to build a long-term successful business, which takes time, hard work, and dedication. But you can achieve any level of success. The opportunities are endless.
You can try wealthy affiliate risk-free, no CC needed here.
