What Work Will You Be Doing at Wealthy Affiliate Exactly?

There are many things that you can do to earn money online, in fact, there are 100’s of different ways that are taught within Wealthy Affiliate. I want to simplify things here, so in a nutshell, this is how it works.

First a breakdown diagram of the process here.

How Wealthy Affiliate Works

When you join, you are given two options. You can either follow your passion, maybe you like helping people with Nutrition or Fishing, or whatever you want. There are MILLIONS of potential directions you can head and you can choose that as your direction.  This is going to be your starting point and the initial training course is going to show you how you can take your passion and turn it into a full time business online.

If you don’t have a passion or a niche, or you want us to choose one for you, then that is OK too. Wealthy Affiliate has an affiliate bootcamp with a “predefined” topic that you will be building a business from.  This training is a complete step by step walk through, starting from scratch and there is no experience necessary.

So simply put, you are going to learn to take your passion and create a online business. It starts with a niche website, and it is going to end with you earning in a whole array of ways from that website.  This can be through the promotion of affiliate programs, ads, or otherwise.

The Wealthy Affiliate Pricing Plans

Wealthy Affiliate has two membership price points:

Starter Membership, $0 (Join Here)
Premium Membership, $49 per month / $359 per year (Join Here)

I know, $0 sounds too good to be true but it is. No credit card required…and when you join Starter, you are going to be granted instant access to the Wealthy Affiliate community.  This includes access to over 500 training modules, 3 classrooms, live chat,  networking, commenting, 2 free websites, access to the keyword tool.  On and on and on.

In fact, I encourage you to start for free.  I would rather see you “see for yourself”, much before you ever have to invest any of your own money.

To be honest, I have not seen another service or platform in the industry that can compete with Wealthy Affiliate’s FREE Starter membership, other than…

Wealthy Affiliate Premium.  This is the true “all inclusive” platform if you are even remotely interested in growing an online business.

Wealthy Affiliate Premium replaces all of the other “costs” you typically need to worry about during your day to day activities.  The website builder fees, hosting fees, the keyword tool fees, paying for hired help and mentoring, writing tools, domains, live events, searching the net tirelessly for answers to your questions, and getting access to the RIGHT training…all those things are included within Wealthy Affiliate Premiums one low price.


My FINAL Opinion 

I highly recommend Wealthy Affiliate to everyone looking to make money from home. It is well worth the time and money

Join the starter membership, it’s FREE. Evaluate it and see how you like it, you have nothing to lose since it is 100% free to start. Once you join, I will make sure to get in touch with you within the first hour.  I want you to make me one promise however if you do join…that you will set-up your account.  It is simple and you will be walked through it upon joining WA.


Special BONUS!


When you join your FREE Starter Account, you are going to get a bonus offer, if you do decide to become a PREMIUM member in the first 7 days (including a 59% discount).  When you create your account at Wealthy Affiliate, you will get a personal message on your profile with additional benefits and information about WA, how to get help from me, and how to claim your bonus.

You will never know what you have been missing until you check out Wealthy Affiliate yourself.

  1. Hey jim, great review but it still needs a little more work.
    Like creating a much longer content and adding screenshots of wealthy affiliate to your content.
    you can take a screenshot by holding the widows button and the print screen button.
    all the best

    • Thank you Gary,
      My computer will not let me do screenshots for some reason, I had to take pictures and upload that way.
      I am used to being very short and direct in what I say so the content amount is a work in progress lol.
      Best success

  2. Hey Jim,

    Wonderful, I’m so glad I found this article. Finally my problems about building my own online business will now become a reality.

    I have been searching online all these years about how to build my own business online. However, I just didn’t know where to start from. That is why I’m so happy I found this review about Wealthy Affiliate.

    In fact I really like the fact that they will teach me how to build my own business website and then learn how to make money out of it.

    But I have one question, my question is is the Wealthy Affiliate FREE Starter account available to all countries?

    Please let me hear your reply.

  4. Dear Jim,

    What you said is true and honest about wealthy affiliate in your review because I am a member of wealthy affiliate. I am learning lot of things for my online business from WA only.
