A Wealthy Affiliate University Review

Hey there and thanks for checking out this crucial information. What you will find here is a Wealthy Affiliate University Review which is unbiased and 100% honest. I am a member and have been for a long time, so believe me I am in the know when it comes to this platform.

Now, I am not gonna sit here and bore you with statistics and make you false promises. I know I only have a few seconds (maybe less than a minute) to get your undivided attention, and I want to make this good and offer you the truth behind this university.

So, let’s get down to it shall we?

Also before we start,  make sure you read all of the information here, and be sure to get your free membership and added FREE bonuses at the end.

So, Why Take My Word For It?

If you do some research online, you will see tons of reviews. Not only for Wealthy Affiliate, but for many other platforms and products too. So why the hell shouldBe Successful - A Wealthy Affiliate University Review

you take my word above others? Well, it is quite simple really.
  1. I am a current (and successful) member since 2014, and I do not plan leaving any time soon.
  2. I have 3 full time operating websites that all provide me with a monthly sustainable income.
  3. I have become very knowledgeable when it comes to building websites and online businesses.
  4. All of my skills have been learned within the Wealthy Affiliate University.
  5. I am more than capable of helping you achieve the same level of success.

So, shall we stop playing around and discuss the benefits of this university and will you allow me to tell you everything you need to know?

Are we good?

What Is The Wealthy Affiliate University?

Well, basically that is exactly what it is. It is a university.

Now don’t panic here, nobody is asking you to take time off work or change your life or even go back to school. This is all done online and it is made pretty straight forward as a result.

The platform has been developed over a period of many years and now stands out in the online world as the place to go if you want to build a successful business online. Developed by Kyle and Carson, they started out back in 2005. Since then the university has sky-rocketed and as it stands today there are over 1.3 MILLION members.

Let me get one thing straight

This platform will take you step by step through all of the courses and modules in order for you to build a successful online business from home. It will NOT promise you thousands in cash in the first few days. It is not a trick, it is not a scam and it is not BS. If you want to build a genuine online business, then keep reading. If you are looking for cash fast, then go and get a loan!!!

There are too many people looking for (and falling for) false promises online. Be warned, if you find offers saying you are going to be making $1000 a day in a few days time, you are about to be taken for an expensive ride with no results. These offers are there for one reason, to take your money!

The Wealthy Affiliate University on the other hand is a structured educational platform that will provide you all the tools and information you need (STEP BY STEP) to build something worthwhile and which you can call your own!

There are no false promises here. Education, Studying and Applying what you learn will result in your success.

If you are still with me, keep reading!

The Pros & The Cons Of Wealthy Affiliate

I do not think it would be fair of me to guide you through this review by only singing praises. Not everything (or everyone) is perfect. There is always room for improvement no matter what people say, would you agree?

Because of this, I wanted to offer you my honest breakdown of what I think is good and what needs to be improved.


  • A clear structured lesson package to follow.
  • All of the courses and tuition packages are presented in video format to make things clear and simple.
  • Experts within the Wealthy Affiliate community (1000’s of members) are always available to help you.
  • Superb support system in place to assist you within a few seconds .
    Pros And Cons - A Wealthy Affiilate University Review
  • Training levels from beginner to the most advanced.
  • Live classes every week when you can interact and ask questions.
  • Owners on hand to assist you personally.
  • The Best Website Hosting And Security.
  • Everything included under one roof (no need to look elsewhere).
  • You can work at your own pace.
  • My personal assistance offered.
  • Completely FREE to join.


  • There is a lot of information to absorb and it is easy to be distracted. (FOLLOW THE TRAINING).
  • There are 1000’s of members who you will get to know. This can be a distraction and you can find yourself talking to them and not getting on with your work. (STAY FOCUSED).

When it comes to looking at the cons, they are easily dealt with if you stay on track. As you develop your business, it is only natural to want to expand and you can find yourself running ahead and missing core training elements. FOLLOW THE TRAINING from start to finish, then you will have the knowledge you need to expand. Do not race ahead.

Is The Wealthy Affiliate University For You?

Like I mentioned a little earlier, the world seems to be swamped with people scouring the internet for money making offers. This university is not what this platform is all about.

Imagine you were wanting to set up a shop in your local high street or mall. Would you expect to set it all up completely free of charge and make 1 Million in the first month? Of course you wouldn’t, and you would be an idiot if you did. It takes time, effort, ups and downs and some sweat.

Well, building an online business follows the same pattern, but I will say it is a lot less expensive and with a lot less stress.

This university is great for people in the following situations

  • People who have been made redundant or have lost their jobs and need a fresh start and approach (Like I Did).
  • Those that are tired and exhausted of listening to their ungrateful bosses and want to escape the normal working routine.
  • Youngsters who are studying at college and need funds to support their education.

You know what, the list can go on and on, and I will not sit here boring you to death. In a nutshell, if you are in a position where you feel you want to do something different and for yourself, then the Wealthy Affiliate University can help you.

Whether you are 18 years old and at school, or whether you are retired and need extra money to help you along the way, you can find a great deal of guidance within Wealthy Affiliate (WA).

If you are willing to put in some hours for studying, apply what you learn and be committed to your project, then you will succeed. It really is as simple as that!

The Wealthy Affiliate Membership Levels

The membership of Wealthy Affiliate is important for me to discuss with you as I do not want you to feel like I am pulling any stunts with you.

Like I said a little earlier, you can join the university for free, completely free in fact and you can take advantage of what it has to offer. You can get a good feel to see if you think it is for you without spending any money.

I think this is important, and you will find a lot of platforms which do not offer this. Wealthy Affiliate is very confident you will love what there is inside, so they have no qualms in allowing you full access for a while to see if you like it.

The two levels of membership are Starter and Premium, and I want to tell you a little about them here.

The FREE Starter Membership?

When you initially sign up, you have a period of 7 days to check out the system and get started. Within this package you are given access to the starter classrooms which will introduce you to the platform, allow you to meet the community members and get your own website up and running which will be the foundation for your business.

You will also have access to hundreds of training modules and all the help and support you need during this time.

This time frame will certainly allow you to get a taste of what is on offer and you will have all the information you need to decide if you want to take the premium membership and really build up and sky-rocket your business.


A lot of people do ask me if it is possible to make money and run a business using only the Starter Membership. To be honest with you, theoretically yes you can. Practically though, you will find upgrading to the Premium Membership more beneficial as you will be taught everything in more depth.

From the Starter Membership, the training is limited and there is a lot more you will need to learn and apply.

The PREMIUM Membership – A Wise Investment

A Little Taste Of What Is Inside

Here, I just want to dive into a couple of the features of Wealthy Affiliate so you can see what it is all about. It is one thing me sitting and telling you, and it is another showing you.

Here are a few of the things on offer.

University Live Video Tuition – The Best On The Market

The Live Training Classes are streamed every week (without fail) and they offer great value when it comes to building your business.

Every week you will be presented with important topics which are essential to your business and you can ask questions directly to the instructor. You will also have full access to the video replays (recordings) should you not be able to attend the live webinar.

Support – 24/7

Getting help is essential especially when you are starting out. Wealthy Affiliate offers levels of support that you will not be disappointed with.

  • Assistance From The Owners – Kyle and Carson are available to you via private message to address your questions.Get Support - A Wealthy Affiliate University Review
  • Support From The Community Members – Members are online 24/7 all over the world that can offer advice and help
  • Website Support 24/7 – Simply fill in an easy form, and the experts will be there within seconds to help you out with the technical aspects of your website
  • Live Chat – Members are always conversing, asking questions and offering help in the 24/7 Live Chat area
  • Private Messaging To Members – Get the assistance directly from another member by utilizing the PM (Private Message) function.
  • My Support – I will always be around too and I will help you out whenever you need it.

Training – The Very Best In The Industry

The training within the Wealthy Affiliate platform is thorough from start to finish! Whether you are new on the scene, or you have experience, you will find the training here very useful and helpful. If you apply the tuition and techniques shown you will be well on your way to being successful. Just remember (DO NOT CUT CORNERS!!). Follow all of the tuition from start to finish.

There are hundreds of modules to learn from, but the Online Entrepreneur Certification Course is where you want to start. 50 Lessons spread across 5 modules that will take you step by step from the very beginning.

From there, you can start to make use of the other hundreds (and thousands) of training modules and live classes to widen your expertise.

Follow Your Interests

There is nothing worse than being bored. Do you agree with me? I cannot thing of anything worse than sitting bored out of my mind while someone rabbits on about something I have absolutely no interest in. So, if I do not want to be bored to death by someone else, why would I do it to myself?

I always remember a teacher of mine at school. His name was Mr Howarth and he was my French Teacher. OK I was young and stupid, but I hated French. I could not understand it (and I still don’t), and I did not want to. I was not interested at all.

On the other hand, Mr Howarth was passionate about it. He loved France and everything French. The food, the culture, the language and the general way of life. He absolutely adored it.

Now Tell Me:

How could that man stand in front of 10 different classrooms of students every weekday for hours at a time, and talk about things he was not interested in? He couldn’t could he? Or maybe he could, but he would have hated it as much as I hated listening to it!!!

As a young boy, of course I knew nothing, but his passion for his chosen subject always stayed with me. As I have grown older, I understand now just how much he loved what he taught. I respect him for that!

My point is, you need to decide on a business that interests you. If you are interested in something, you will throw yourself into it on a daily basis and you will love what you are doing and building. Choosing an interest that you know little about or have no interest in, will only throw obstacles in your way when it comes to making progress.

Choose An Interest - A Wealthy Affiliate University Review
4 Steps To Success Doing Something You Love!

So, for example if you love French (or languages), consider building a business involving this aspect.

Here are some ideas to show you what people are building their businesses about on within Wealthy Affiliate.

  • Movies
  • Music
  • Playing An Instrument
  • Finances
  • Video Games
  • Gardening
  • Construction
  • Cars And Mechanics
  • Tourism and Holidays
  • Affiliate Marketing

You see, there are many areas to look at and this list is by no means exhaustive. In fact, it is the tip of the iceberg. There are millions of ideas out there.

Just be sure to go down a road that you are going to love and enjoy, and in turn your visitors and customers will enjoy your work too. The training here within the university will see you apply the rest of the pieces.

How Much Does All This Cost?

This is where we get down the nitty gritty isn’t it?

As already mentioned, The Wealthy Affiliate University is COMPLETELY FREE to join. There is no con, there is no commitment and you do not need a credit card to sign up. If you decide it is not for you, you will never be charged a cent.

As a free member, you are offered 7 days of full access which will allow you to find your way around and get your feet wet. You can stay a free member as long as you like, but after the 7 days, your access will be limited.

The premium membership offers full access and it is not expensive when you look at what is on offer.

Here are the price plans.

  • Monthly – $49
  • Yearly – $495 (works out at $41.25 per month and saves you $93 on the monthly)

The Wealthy Affiliate Signup Options

As you can see, the yearly option really does save you a lot of money, but I would only look at taking the 6 monthly or yearly plans once you have had a good feel for the platform.

When you consider the tuition, the support, live training and hosting that is on offer, I think it is a very good price to build a business.

What Other Members Are Saying!

There is no need to listen only to my words. Here I have taken a screenshot for you from inside the platform of some of the recent success stories from other active Wealthy Affiliate University members.

FAQ’s (Frequently Asked Questions)

Here you will find some frequently asked questions that people approach me with before they join the university.

  • Q. What Is This About? I have never heard of it before.
  • A. The platform of Wealthy Affiliate is a place you come to in order to build a successful business online. It provides all of the tools, tuition, guidance and help for you to be successful in creating your own online space.
  • Q. What Is This Jaaxy You Talk About?
  • A. Jaaxy is a Keyword Tool (and a lot more) that will ensure you create good content with competing keywords so you can rank your content in Google and the other search engines (Bing & Yahoo) with ease and get visitors through the door of your business.
  • Q. Does All Of This Work? Or Is It All Talk?
  • A. You know, this is one of the more frequent questions that I get. In short, YES, it does work, but you need to be prepared to put the work in on your end. Follow all of the tuition and do as you are instructed and there is no reason why you cannot achieve great levels of success.
  • Q. I am Useless When It Comes To Computers. Can I Still Do This?
  • A. Yes you can. The platform here does not require that you have any certain skill levels with computers. It will take you from the very beginning. A computer and an internet connection is all you need.
  • Q. Is It Really Free To Join? There Must Be Some Hidden Charges Right?
  • A. It is completely free to join the platform and get started. It will not cost you anything. If you decide you are serious, then there is the small expense of a domain name and the premium membership. You do not need to spend any money until you have joined and tried it for free. You can sign up with no obligations and without a credit card.
  • Q. How Long Does It Take Before I Start Making Money?
  • A. Another popular question, and the simple answer is, it depends on how hard you are willing to work. The more effort you put in and the more you apply the training into practice, the sooner you will see results.
  • Q. How Can I be Sure This Is Not A Scam?
  • A. You are right to ask this, as there are many scams out there. I myself have been on the receiving end of them, and it is far from a great feeling. Wealthy Affiliate though is not like this. There is no down payment, no credit card and no commitment required to try it for free. If you are willing to try the free membership you will see for yourself that it is all above board.
  • Q. If I Decide it is Not For Me, What Do I Need To Do?
  • A. Nothing at all, and there will be no hard feelings. If you decide this platform is not for you, you can simply delete your profile and you will not be charged anything.

There are of course thousands of questions that come my way, and if you have one of your own, feel free to leave it in the comments section below and I will get back to you straight away!

My Final Word

I hope you got to the end of my review and more importantly you enjoyed it and found it helpful.

The last thing I want to tell you, is that I have not always been in the position I am now. I have been in desperate situations and have fallen for offers in the past offering money making opportunities. I have been stung, ripped off, hurt and left furious. When you do not have money to start with, it hurts all the more.

Since joining Wealthy Affiliate in 2014, I have not looked back. I have built a successful business online and I am doing quite OK. I do not regret signing up and in actual fact, I found myself taking the yearly payment plan as I knew this was going to be special for me.

If you are interested in developing an online business, then this is for you too. Be sure to start off with the Free Membership. See if you like it. Meanwhile, if you have ANY questions, concerns or thoughts, feel free to let me know. Just send me a message in the comments below!

  1. Nice article and informative post there. All want you said there is true. I know because have been in Wealth Affiliate for sometime now and I can say it has been wonderful. I did have any basics knowledge about affiliate marketing when I started but today I can say my life has changed significantly with the community that is always ready to help you at any point in time

    • Thanks for getting in touch and letting me know that things are going well for you inside the University. it proves it works if you are willing to put in the effort.

      Nice to hear from you.


  2. Wealthy Affiliate still remains the greatest honest training program, They will train you on all aspects of internet marketing.You can use this knowledge to build a successful business selling online a product of your choice. That product can be any of the thousand products offered on Amazon or it could be an affiliate program such as a sales training program.  I have dedicated my time to learn further with Wealthy Affiliate training.

    Learning takes time and effort, there are no shortcuts.

    • i absolutely agree Ola.. if you want to do something worthwhile, you need to do it correctly.

      if you are not willing to put in the effort to achieve your goals then you will not achieve them! Shortcuts will only lead to failure!

      Thanks for reading


  3. This is an incredible blog post. I really love the way you outlined the review of Wealthy Affiliate, a very passionate online platform. I cannot but agree with all you have written. Truly if you are looking for a legit site where to make money online ‘Wealthy Affiliate is a goal. I must say this is an eye opener. This is the most extensive article i have ever read. Thanks for your in-depth write-up.

  4. The Wealthy Affiliate University Review you just dropped is very fantastic because its explicit enough for every reader to understand. The four reasons you gave for us to take your word above others are very very good reasons. 

    For the mere fact that you have been on the wealthy affiliate platform since 2014 and you are still there currently is more than enough reason not too doubt your words, because that is almost 5 years. If you haven’t been gaining much from the site you would have left since. Thanks so much for this post. It was really helpful

  5. Hey there,

    I have to say I am also a Wealthy Affiliate Member since 2016. I am a full-time employee and I use Wealthy Affiliate University and 1 blog as a hobby/side gig. I indeed have used it a lot to create and promote my blog. I haven’t given my blog too much attention due to a shortage of time. I try to follow the courses and create reviews and blog posts at the same time. Indeed the info is vast and it is hard to cover all the material, but it has a great search engine, so you can find anything you want. It also has a weekly live webinar, which is more suitable (time-wise) for American members, but all the webinars are available to watch at any time.

    I’m now following the Online Entrepreneur Course. When I finish it, should I, in your opinion, go over the Affiliate Bootcamp as well? Does it have good information?



    • Hey Marios

      yes the Boot Camp is well worth doing. Even though you have chosen the Online Entrepreneur Course to build up your business, the Boot Camp Course does offer information that the course you are currently covering does not.

      While the Online Entrepreneur Course is aimed at getting you up and running in a chosen niche, the Boot Camp can really open your eyes to the money and business side of things.

      In my opinion, everyone should do both courses as they are both full of very important information that will arm you going forward!



        • Well Marios, it is not a case of simply promoting things. At the end of the day there is a right and a wrong way to do things. There are numerous good programs out there which offer quality, I will never deny that, but there is also a lot of garbage out there too.

          There are many different roads you can take and what you promote will depend on your chosen niche, for setting up a business online I recommend the Wealthy Affiliate program!

          If you are already a member of Wealthy Affiliate and you have chosen to go with your own niche, then that is great. I still think though, that the Boot Camp course can offer you a lot when it comes to your niche too!

          Wealthy Affiliate and its courses and tuition just happens to be the road I have gone down, other people are welcome to make their own choices too.



  6. I love your honest review about wealthy affiliate. I got to know about wealthy affiliate, after reading a bunch of testimonies about them. I joined WA community a few weeks ago, and so far it has being really beautiful. The Wealthy Affiliate platform is capable of turning a newbie in affiliate marketing to a pro.

    • Thanks for letting us know how you are finding it in the opening weeks.

      Things are very straight forward if you follow the tuition and you are quite right, do things correctly and you can soon pick up the skills needed to run your own online business.

      Nice to hear from you.


  7. Great post and good info.

    Im a member of Wealthy Affiliate for a while now, and all I can say about it is that it changed my life. In the good way, since the courses they give are wonderful you learn everything how to make money, and how to promote things. 

    My online business came along thanks to them, and I earn good money with it. 

    All I can say to you folks is this: join it now. 

    Thanks for sharing it!
