Also know as Wealthy Affiliate University or simply WA, Wealthy Affiliate has existed since 2005. This online program and company was founded by Kyle and Carson and has been paying people since then.
I was lucky to have wealthy Affiliate as one of the first websites I came across when researching how to make money online working from home. The free materials I got from wealthy affiliate were enough to get me started and to guide me how to make a stable income online especially as an affiliate. The paid material is simply the game changer!
So.. I guess you are asking yourself What is Wealthy Affliate?
First, this is not a get rich quick scheme! So, if that’s what you are looking for then you landed on the wrong page. Wealthy Affiliate is divided into two sections; Get started here courses and Affiliate Bootcamp.
Think of it as simply a community if like minded people with one goal to succeed making money online. The community is led by Kyle and Carson. So the two lads came together and with the knowledge and experience they had in online marketing, put both free and paid courses on their website. There are both text and videos to help complete beginners get started making money online.
This is the most impressive guide I have found online. Other members like yourself, some already making money online are available to chat with and exchange ideas. It’s a good place to find mentor affiliates too!
Often, most of the free courses you will come across online are not even worth your time reading and most people who put up such courses just live in hope that you will click that buy button and go for their premium stuff hoping it will be better. Kyle and Carson, however, came up with a very educative free course (no credit card required) that is capable of helping you stand alone even if you did not buy their premium course.
They even give you two free blogs with free web hosting and teach you how to create an authoritative website and how to make money from it.
With free membership you get:
There are just so much benefits on their website and you know what… I will let you find out the rest for yourself. I don’t wanna ruin your surprise (for those who have gotten tired of researching genuine ways to earn money online without much success).
Its free to register so you have nothing to lose.
What's included in Wealthy Affiliate's premium membership?
You may decide to start with the free membership and decide if its worth upgrading to Premium membership but in my opinion there’s more to learn in premium membership especially if you want to be a good online entrepreneur.
Premium membership coast $19 for the first month and $49 for the rest of the months. It will however only cost you $30 per month if you went for the annual membership of $357.
After learning how to build your new blog from scratch and to monetize it, wealthy affiliate gives you their products to promote. They trust that whatever materials they have provided you with in the tutorials is good enough to help you start making money marketing their products!
I believe this is why they provide good quality training material even for the free membership holders to so that at the end of it they are capable of making sales, which to me is a win-win situation.
