Q: What is Wealthy Affiliate (WA) all about?

A: Affiliate marketing is a method of earning commissions by selling other people’s products. Rather than create products of your own, you can create great websites and refer your site visitors  and readers to offers made through Amazon, JVZoo, Warrior Forum, and hundreds of other places. Whenever your readers buy something, you earn a commission. You will never need to handle, or deliver, the product yourself. It’s all done for you!

Wealthy Affiliate will teach you step-by-step how to do that and more.


Q: How much does it cost to join Wealthy Affiliate?

A: You can join FREE and give it a test drive. You don’t even need to enter a credit card number, so there are no deductions made when you forget you signed up (as I did). There’s no scam here. FREE membership doesn’t give you access to all the features that are included in the premium offer, but you can learn about them. You can take time to think about whether or not the program suits you, before you make a decision. At the same time, there are plenty of features you can use with your FREE membership; you can even earn commissions without taking up the Wealthy Affiliate premium membership.


Q: How much is the Premium Membership?

A: It’s less than $20 for the first month, then $49 a month thereafter. You can cancel at any time. When you begin to make headway with Wealthy Affiliate, you can convert to the yearly premium of $359 at any time, and make a considerable saving on the monthly cost.


Q: Do I need a website?

A: Yes. But don’t worry. Wealthy Affiliate has this covered for you. WA membership includes free access to a blog platform called Site Rubix. It allows you to create a new website in under 30 seconds, and it’s completely free. This sounds like a big claim, but that is just how the Site Rubix blog platform performs. After that, you are ready to write your copy, upload your pics, etc.

The best way to feel comfortable with the WA platform is simply to try Wealthy Affiliate free of charge.

The starter membership will give you some experience with the customized proprietary platform developed by the founders over many years.


Q: Where do I get help with any issues I might have?

A: The Wealthy Affiliate community is large and very helpful. The owners/founders, Kyle and Carson, are still very active in the WA community.  From my experience, no question goes unanswered. In most cases, there are multiple responses from members trying to help others. In the WA membership area, there are also helpful blog posts from members that you can read and benefit from.

You will soon learn what works and what doesn’t by asking for help. It’s easy, it’s quick, and the advice is good.


Q. Are there any Wealthy Affiliate Success Stories?

A: Success means different things to different people. Some seek massive incomes, others just a few dollars to supplement their regular income. The best thing about Wealthy Affiliate is that you can scale your time and efforts and chase what you want or need. You might find yourself raising your sights a bit once you start achieving some success. 

I reached out to the WA Community and asked them to tell me in a few words what they thought about the program.

Here are a few responses:

I’m so glad to have found Wealthy Affiliate when I did! When I tried affiliate marketing years ago, I made nothing, but now I’ve been making money online every month since 2 months in! – LM, joined Sep 2016.

Best part for me about Wealthy Affiliate, I get to promote products that I truly believe in… and people can see this when you are talking about the topic with them. You are passionate about it. MP, joined June 2015.

I have zero intention of ever leaving WA – simply because it provides me with the latest information on online marketing to keep scaling up my business each and every year and to stay ahead of my competition. And for the price of a yearly premium membership – that’s a steal.  LE, joined June 2012.

Not just that, but I have built another 2 websites that are already ranking within the short space of 3 months. I have gained more avenues of earning income. Wealthy Affiliate has completely changed my life in a few short months. I look forward to seeing what the future offers. – LH, joined June 2015.
