Wealthy Affiliate Scam or Legit?

So you’re wondering…Is Wealthy Affiliate Scam or Legit?

Let me give you my honest review and tell you what is up. :)

You may have heard this much….


PRODUCT_NAME: Wealthy Affiliate
Overall Ranking: 98 out of 100  (only because nothing is perfect right?-but this is close)
Price: $0 for Starting Memberships
Owners: Kyle and Carson
Website:  www.wealthyaffiliate.com

But read on…you want to know more.  I’ve got you covered.  Let me show you what I have experienced with Wealthy Affiliate…

Q. So What is Wealthy Affiliate Anyway?

A. Wealthy Affiliate is a service and community.

The service is second to none. They provide an extremely valuable platform to build an online business and all the training you need and more to go with it.   You are not limited.   You can choose to create your own unique business. Are you passionate about something?   You can build a business about it. Or maybe you are not sure? NO PROBLEM! Wealthy Affiliate has training that will be more direct for you and you can still learn to build your own online business!

 The community is everyone who has joined Wealthy Affiliate.   And let me tell you there are a lot of us. You are able to talk to each other and YES even the owners participate!   This is incredibly valuable and essential to success.   I have tried other programs that say they offer this kind of thing but once I’ve joined it’s been nothing like what they promised.   Wealthy Affiliate has delivered EVERYTHING they promised and more. I can tell you that that both Kyle and Carson have helped me personally on my journey and so have many other WA members who are part of this extraordinary community.   You can ask questions and learn from people who are doing it themselves.   From the newbie to the experts, we are all here to help.   It is a place where like-minded people are ready to help you in any way you need while you are on your way to success and beyond.

In fact just so you know exactly how I feel about it…..Wealthy Affiliate has become my new facebook. :)  Here’s a pic of my profile and chat when I was writing this so you can see 😉

Pro‘s vs. Cons


Ok so in all seriousness,  there are way too many pro’s to mention here and I’m not even sure what to put for cons.   Here are a few of my personal favorite things about Wealthy Affiliate…

  • FREE to Get Started
  • Easy to follow Video Tutorials
  • Live Chat help
  • Helpful Community Members
  • The Owners actually care about you and help you too!
  • Two Completely Free Websites
  • *Top Notch Fast Hosting Service

I could seriously go on and on.   So much Value is offered within the Wealthy Affiliate membership.

*THE HOSTING SERVICE IS ONE OF THE TOP REASONS I RECOMMEND WA.  It’s the best Hosting you can get…all included for just the Premium Membership cost.  Can’t beat it.

This is not for anyone who is trying to get rich quick.

This is honestly and truly the only real con  I can give you.   If you are thinking there is some click button business out there,  keep searching.   It doesn’t exist.  Try WA out for yourself and please tell me if I am wrong.  I am all about honesty here and giving you the truth.    No get rich quick schemes or hype here.  If you are ready to learn the EASY steps it takes to build your online business then this is for you.


A.  LITERALLY ANYONE who wants to build themselves their own online business

To Quote Kyle the owner from WA…

”If you can butter toast, then you can build a business with wealthy affiliate!”

Take it from me…It’s true! So if you want to learn to make money online….you don’t have to worry about getting lost in the dark here.  All you have to do is get started!


Q. What type of training will I get when I join Wealthy Affiliate?

A.   That is a great question with an information-overload answer!

Wealthy affiliate provides the following in their training:

  • Live weekly training classes
  • Q and A sessions
  • Classrooms
  • Chats and Discussions
  • Video and Tutorial Training
  • Tasks and check lists After Each Course



One thing I love here at Wealthy Affiliate is how much opportunity there is for literally anyone because you can learn more than one business model and choose any theme.   So take your pick which route you are going to go in the training and you can learn to build a business that could generate a full time income.

OK so the training is great,  but you also need tools to help build your business.  You have research and writing to do for your website.  Guess what?  WA has you covered there too!   They provide a whole belt of tools you can use once you are a premium member! (And you have access to it for your first 7 days as a Free Member too so you can see all I’m talking about for yourself without paying a dime)

  • Keyword Research Tool
  • WordPress Express
  • Low Competition Keywords Lists
  • (Premium) Unlimited Cloud Hosting
  • Access to 1,000’s of website themes
  • Rapid Writer Tool (your content friend)


rapid writer



 EVERYTHING is included in your membership with Wealthy Affiliate. No hidden fees or charges here.

Wealthy Affiliate truly streamlines your business building processes.

It is truly an ALL INCLUSIVE business platform.

 Q.  What kind of support is offered?

A.  Fast and Quality Support -Read list below

Everyone knows you need support when it comes to having a business. I am here to declare that Wealthy Affiliate provides some top notch support for its members.   I have not been disappointed at all.

  • Support includes:
  • Live Chat 24/7 365 days a yr.
  • Discussion Groups
  • Q and A
  • Access to Community Experts (including the owners)

 One thing is for sure.   You won’t ever be alone and you will not feel lost or in the dark.   WA provides support like no one else I’ve ever experienced.

For example…

Below is a screen capture from a message Kyle the owner sent to me within 24 hrs of me writing and asking him for advice while building my website.   What program owner out there really does this?   In my experience this is a first!  And it wasn’t our last communication either!  I know I can talk to him at any time! 


I have also received so much support from members in Wealthy Affiliate!   They are so extremely supportive and helpful in every way!


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

A. It is $0 to join Wealthy Affiliate as a Starter Member and $47/mo or $359/yr to go Premium.  See Details below. :)

 The two price points for Wealthy Affiliate are listed below.

  1. Starter Membership -Cost $0

Starter Memberships give you access to most of the premium membership features FREE for 7 days including chat support, commenting, over 500 training modules, 3 classrooms, keyword tool, and did I mention 2 FREE websites!   Now say you don’t go premium in 7 days.  Well guess what?   You still have the 2 websites and your starter membership and can do with them as you please.   You can go see what I’m talking about right away!   All the features of the membership are invaluable so I’m sure you will want to consider the Premium Membership once you look around if you are serious.  If you DO join the premium membership in your first 7 days then you get a great discount on your first month as premium member.

I LOVE that it is FREE to join Wealthy Affiliate. I LOVE that you DON’T just have to just take MY word for it.   You can go see for yourself that what I’m saying is in fact TRUE without paying a dime! 



  1. Premium Membership – $47/mo or $359/yr

For me, Wealthy Affiliate Premium Membership is a NO BRAINER if you want to build yourself a lasting online business.  I say this because I have tried lots of other programs and seriously WA is second to NONE!

Everything you’ll need to create your business is included at the ONE STOP SHOP Wealthy Affiliate.  When you join as a premium member you won’t have to worry about hosting fees, keyword tool fees, website builder fees, hiring help, or not having answers to your questions.   It is all included in the low monthly membership price.   I find that absolutely amazing.   It’s so refreshing to finally have a way to make things work for the average Joe at an affordable price.




 Wealthy Affiliate is by no means anything like a scam.

I am absolutely confident that you will love Wealthy Affiliate as much as I do when you join.   And even if you are just curious you CAN take a look for FREE, see everything that I’ve discussed and shown you for yourself and then decide if it is for you!   You seriously cannot lose by joining Wealthy Affiliate as a $0 Starter Member and EVERYTHING to gain! 

I can tell you one thing. If you want something LEGIT to build your online business at last….THIS IS IT!

 I am so glad to be able to tell you that

Wealthy Affiliate is TOTALLY LEGIT

My Recommendation

 I assume you are reading this because you want to start your own online business.   If so,  then I highly recommend that you JOIN FOR FREE right away because you seriously have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
