What Is The Truth About Wealthy Affiliate

The fastest growing platform for business these days is the internet. More and more entrepreneurs are choosing to launch their businesses online rather than brick and mortar. There are several reasons for that. The major reason seems to be money. It usually takes less output of money to establish and build an online business that it does to rent a building and stock it with inventory and then wait for sometimes years to recoup the investment.

One of the most used platforms or programs used to begin an internet business is one called Wealthy Affiliate. You may be among many who want to know “What is the truth about Wealthy Affiliate and the program they promote?” That is what this review is about.

What is Wealthy Affiliate

Wealthy Affiliate is not necessarily a product that you purchase and download it to your computer and then it builds you a business. It is not a website that you own. It is not a business, per se, in that you buy all the parts and put it online and it brings you an income. Wealthy Affiliate is not the name of your business that you build online.

Wealthy Affiliate is a comprehensive guide and tools by which anyone can establish and build an online business and make money. It provides a comprehensive library of lessons, videos and articles which number in the thousands which address just about anything that you would need to know to be able to succeed in an online business.

It should not be construed that because the word “affiliate” appears in the name, that it is the only platform or approach that can be learned at Wealthy Affiliate. You can develop any type of online business that you may prefer. You can find the tutorials and the lessons which will take you in any direction you desire.

Wealthy Affiliate is also a community of like-minded people who want to build an online business just as you do. Among all these you will find some who have done it for years and are very successful and then you will find some who are new at it and are learning and growing in the knowledge of online business.

One of the best aspects of Wealthy Affiliate is the support that it offers. If you ever have a problem that you cannot find the answer to in your lessons, you can ask the support team and get an answer, usually within minutes. I have experienced getting answers to questions which with other programs would take 24 to 48 hours, but with Wealthy Affiliates, it only took 15 minutes. The support is phenomenal.

Wealthy Affiliate does not promise you that you will succeed. However, they will promise you that if you are patient and persistent in your application of the program to your business that you will attain some level of success. Of course, the level you achieve will up to the investment of your time and energy.


Money Investment

How much do you have to invest? That is a pertinent question. There are many programs out there that are similar to Wealthy Affiliate which will gladly charge you thousands of dollars for the training and tools and support that you get through Wealthy Affiliate. I shall not say that what they sell you is not worth what they charge, but I can say that I tried a few of them and when all was said and done, I did not receive anything of lasting value.

What I can say about my investment with Wealthy Affiliate is that in the past year I have invested 1/20th of what I had invested in other programs and have begun to see a return on that investment, whereas I never got a return on the other programs that I tried. With Wealthy Affiliate that return is continuing to grow. As I grow in knowledge and development of my business, so will the income that is generated.

How much is that investment? Well, to begin, it is only your time. You can begin with a Free Membership. But, if you decide to move up to a Premium Membership, you can have access to all the tools and programs and teaching resources that are available to Wealth Affiliate Premium Members. That is the only level of membership that there is. You will not have to pay more to get a better membership.

What is the cost? The cost for a Premium Membership is $49 a month. You may wonder if that is reasonable. Once you see what all you get for that fee, you will come to realize that to purchase all these tools and support separately would cost you hundreds, if not thousands of dollars a month.

Time Investment

The time that you invest in your internet business will be the one thing that brings great returns. You will first spend time learning from the vast library of lessons that are in Wealthy Affiliate. It is structured in a way that keeps you on track so that you will always know how far you have gone and where you will pick up on your next lesson.

There is a systematic approach to your teaching so that you build on that which you have already learned. It is easy to do a quick refresh of a previous lesson if needed before going on to the next.

You will learn how to build and maintain and grow the website for your online business. You will have access to building 25 websites for free through Wealthy Affiliates. In addition, Wealthy Affiliates will host twenty-five more domains for free that you may own or purchase.

The building of your online business will take a while, but with patience and persistence along with consistency your business will grow and succeed. It may take six months or even a year, but you will succeed by persevering.

What is the truth about Wealthy Affiliate

As you can read, my assessment of Wealthy Affiliate is that it is the best program on the internet for beginning and building your own online business. If you enjoy learning and are a creative person then the Wealthy Affiliate program is the perfect fit for you to build your own internet business. It will not be an overnight thing, but it will be the kind of business that will continue to grow and give you an income for years to come.

I encourage you to try the Free Membership. There is no credit card registration. If after you have tasted of what Wealthy Affiliate is and decide that it is the program for you, then you can move up to the Premium Membership.

I Need Help to Start My Own Business-How to Start an Internet Business

If you have a creative personality and have decided that you want to put it to use by starting your own internet business, then you have come to the right place. In the beginning we all need a little help, if not a lot of help, when we start to look at building and internet business. If you are like I was you may have just enough knowledge to make a lot of mistakes because you believe everything out there about building your own internet business.

Let me help

Let me help you.
Do you need some help?

The first thing I can help you with is this: Don’t believe everything you read about building an internet business. No promoter is going to tell you up front that they are going to take advantage of you. Now, when I began I did not know that. So, needless to say, I fell for several scams that took my money but gave me little in return. The main thing they gave me was debt which I must pay. so, do not believe everything they tell you about their product.

If you are interested in a particular product, ask them how much they will allow you to test their product before you must commit to purchasing it. If they insist on upfront payment, that is a good sign that you probably should look elsewhere.

If the promoter reduces the original price drastically in an effort to get you into the program, that is another red flag that you should not ignore. Once in the program you will find out that you will have to spend more and more money if you wish to get all the benefits of their product. In the end this will amount to thousands of dollars and you will be none the better for it nor will you have a money making enterprise.

If the promoter promises you a ready built website with all the products ready to sell, stop and think. What good is a beautiful website if you can not attract traffic to it? What good is a website if you do not know how to update and maintain it and add products as you see fit? What good is a website if you do not have suppliers of products and know how to connect with them to get new products? What good is a beautiful site if you do not know how to accept payments and make payments or returns? Just having a website is not enough.

How much do you know?
Learning what you need to know

What you need to know

So, what do you need to know. One thing that you will need to know is what goes into building your own business website. Not that you have to know machine language or javascript or all the other languages that are used in computer lingo. But it will help to have a little background knowledge of what is going on as far as the structure of your website.

Most, but not all, business websites use what is called WordPress as the platform for their business website. Just about every business website that you may interact with is built on a WordPress theme. Being familiar with how the WordPress platform is set up will help you in understanding how your website is developed.

There are many trained people who are more than happy to aid you in building a WordPress business website. If you have the money to afford them they will probably do a fine job in building you a business website. However, you will still have a pretty steep learning curve before you will be able to run your business website efficiently. You may find yourself spending more money to learn more things. But if you have the money, that is fine.

What if you don’t have lots of money?

Some people have lots of money.
Do you have money to throw away?

If you are like I was, you may have a little money but not thousands of dollars to spend on building a website and then spending more to get traffic and even more to be able to maintain and build the online business, you might consider one of the programs that teach you how to build your own internet business and website. The types of these businesses vary from price range to product range and even more.

Some prefer the storefront approach. They emphasize products of varying types. Typically it is a niche product. These products sites may vary from toothpicks to ATV’s to musical instruments and more. Others may sell intellectual products in the form of information to help in almost any area of knowledge growth.

Still, others are focused on what is called Affiliate Marketing. This is the type of online business that is usually built on the structure of a website that is a blog. Blogs are articles written on given subjects and through people reading the blog they may be directed to certain products that relate to the blog. Contained on the blog site are links to the related products. If the reader clicks on the link they are directed to the products website.

If the reader makes a purchase of a product, the product business will give a commission to the blogger for directing the buyer to their site. This is one of the favorite of online business entrepreneurs. Once the link is incorporated in the blog it will be viable for as long as the business exists. Some affiliate marketers are still making money off of links which are years old.

My recommendation

If you are just beginning, do not have a lot of money, and need to gain some knowledge about internet business, then affiliate marketing is probably the entry point for you. However, in the affiliate marketing arena there are many scams that are ready to take your money.

There are many that will take your money and promise you the sky. They will tell you that you will make fast money, in just days or weeks. DO NOT BELIEVE IT! There is no affiliate marketing program that can make you BIG money in just a few weeks. Any business that is worth its salt must be built on a solid foundation of knowledge and work. That will take time. Some will take a little less and some a little more. It will be determined what level of knowledge you have to start and how much time you have to invest as you grow your business. It will grow in proportion to the time and effort you invest. But it will grow.

Free Online Money Making Opportunities-Are There Any

When beginning a search for opportunities for making money online, most of us will look for a way to try out something for free to see if we really want to pursue an online money making career. This is a little introduction to your beginning your search and hopefully it will save you some time and heartache and maybe some money, too.

Free online money making opportunities

There are numerous money making opportunities on the internet any of which have the potential to make the owner money to one degree or another. As in any business opportunity the investment in the enterprise will determine the return that one will receive.

Since we are talking about “Free” money making opportunities we are assuming that the investment that you are looking at is an investment of time. Not that time is a free commodity, but it is a commodity that you can invest where ever you may decide and that time can be converted into a currency which is a negotiable commodity. The “Free” we shall address is the “Free” that refers to the money aspect of the investment in building an online business.

Which type of online business

Before we get to making any suggestions as to which direction to go and what framework to build on, we must decide what type of online business we wish to build.


There are storefront set-ups in which you decide on a product or types of products you wish to sell. You then build a website on which to display and promote these products on the internet. The problem with this model for the person wishing to build a “Free” online business is that there is usually a financial investment that is necessary to begin this type. There are some few possibilities and we shall mention one later in this blog.

Auction sales

Then there is the auction and sales business which is based and built on a platform which incorporates Ebay and Bonanza and such auction platforms. In these setups you may sell items which you have or sell items for other people or sell items using the “drop shipping” setup, which we shall discuss later in this article. It is simple to set up a “Free” account with Ebay or any of the auction sites. (You can find many simply by doing a google search for “auction sites”. You may choose one or more auction sites through which to sell your products. The free memberships are usually limited in the number of items you may sell. But when getting started you probably will not need to have to many products available.

Drop shipping

This type of business is usually paired with an ebay or storefront business. The usual beginning cost is the cost of purchasing of a domain and a hosting service for your online site. Though these costs are minimal($30 to $100) it is a necessary thing if you are to build an online business. Drop shipping is a structure in which you promote and advertise products on your site and sell them to people who wish to buy them. The advantage is that you do not have to stock any of the items that you advertise and sell.

To do this you ally yourself with one or more businesses that do drop shipping business(google “drop shippers”). Sign up with companies whose products you would like to promote. They will help you set up a “free” account and give you help in promoting their products on your website.

The process by which you make money is when someone makes a purchase on your site(usually through Paypal which is the simplest and a free way to receive payments, since we want “Free”), you then take the money which they have paid you and turn and order the product through the drop shipping company that supplies the product and you pay them the wholesale price. They will then handle the rest of the process and ship the product to the purchasing customer. You keep the difference between the purchase price and the wholesale price. In this way you have spent none of your money and have made a profit by providing a service to the purchaser and the drop shipper.

One must be diligent in choosing the products and the drop shippers that one works with. Not all products and not all drop shippers are equal. You must be willing to put in more time as your business grows. A lot of people have made good money using this platform. But to do that will take time and as you grow it will take more and more time. If you love to work and have the time this will be a good platform for you.

Affiliate marketing

Affiliate marketing is probably the most utilized form of online entrepreneurial enterprise. You must be willing to invest some of your time in the beginning and as your business grows you will invest some more time. But it is not the exponential growth of time involvement as in auctioning or drop shipping or even storefront.

In the beginning there must be a consistent and steady investment of your time. By this I mean from five to ten hours a week. You will know how much you can invest. Over time(6 months to a year) your business will begin to grow, gradually at first, but then as it grows its rate of growth will increase faster and faster. After a couple of years it will almost be self-sustaining growth. Of course you will continue to build your business, but the time factor will be greatly reduced.

How does it work? In affiliate marketing you will set up a website, usually a blog(you will learn what that is as you go) in which you promote certain products or lifestyles or interests. As you grow an audience you will offer them products to help them accomplish their goals. The products that you will offer will be done by referring them to companies that sell those products.

You do this by “affiliating” your online business with the companies that provide the products or services that they may wish to purchase. The company will provide links for you to insert in your website so that when one of your readers clicks on that “banner” or link they will be taken to the company’s website where they may purchase the products you have advertised. Any purchase made from a “click” through your website will be credited to you and you will be given a commission of an agreed upon amount(ranging from 4% to 70% depending on the product and company). You do not have to participate in the sale process at all. The company will pay you your commissions at agreed upon times and amounts.

This program has made many people rich beyond their highest hopes.


Any of these platforms can make the owner money. There are means by which you can begin any of these for “Free”, but there will come a time that you will need to return some of your profit to continue to feed the growth.

Almost any online promoter of these types of business will offer you a free trial. But that free trial expires within 30 to 90 days and you must purchase the full price of their product or you lose your time investment in building your site.

However, there is one platform that is totally “Free” and you are not tied to a time limit in which you must make a decision. The normal person, which I consider myself and many others, can not get enough knowledge in 30 to 90 days to know whether they can use a given platform to build their online business. You may end up as I did a time or two and feel pressured to join a program and after three or four months realize you could not work it, either because of lack of support or lack of knowledge base or the program was not what it said it was.

The program that I recommend gives you a totally “FREE” opportunity to set up your own website and gives you 10 free lessons to give you the tools to set up your own website to promote you own interests or products. They will also give you 2 “FREE” websites and host them for “FREE” so you can build your presence on the internet. Of course, you will not have access to the thousands of tools which are available to the “PREMIUM” membership. But you can use and learn with the two “FREE” websites for as long as you wish. You are never pressured to join the “PREMIUM” membership if you do not wish. You will be given opportunity to join if you wish, but never pressured.

The name of the program is Wealthy Affiliates. Wealthy Affiliates never makes outlandish promises about success but will give you realistic appraisal and direction in building your online business. If you decide by using the totally “FREE” program that Wealthy Affiliates is viable instrument for building a growing internet business, then you can join the “PREMIUM” program and gain access to thousands(yes I said thousands) of tools and teachings on how to build a successful online business.

The cost for these priceless tools is only $49 a month. You can purchase a yearly membership and save up to 40% off of the membership cost. Now, remember, you can take as long as you wish with the “FREE” program before you make a decision whether to join the “PREMIUM” or not. You may choose not to join. That is OK. Keep the “FREE” as a gift. You may decide later to join the “PREMIUM”. You can do that at any time you may wish.

At Wealthy Affiliates you will find many people who are just like you and are building their own online business. You will also find a wealth of knowledge and information which you will find no where else in one location. The support is phenomenal and is online 24 hours a day. You will get answers to your questions and problems within minutes(usually), not hours or days or never.

I hope you will take advantage of one of the best internet marketing programs available today by signing up for your “FREE” program membership.
