My Wealthy Affiliate-It Might Be For You


I named this post My Wealthy Affiliate because I am blessed to have stumbled upon an extraordinary company with so much to offer, so I consider this company mine. I feel confident that you will discover this same company is also for you. In this article, I will tell you the story of My Wealthy Affiliate and why it might be for you. We will unlock some aspects about the platform and information that is indeed not a secret to the world of affiliate marketing. Secrets that Wealthy Affiliate will freely share with you.

I will tell you the truth because nothing is perfect and you need to know the whole story to make a properly informed decision.

A touch of history

I thought this would be an excellent time to introduce you to the founders of my Wealthy of Kyle Loudoun

Kyle Loudoun and Carson Lim founded WA in 2005. They met at university and had a photo of Carson Limdream. With this dream in mind, they started the company offering high search keywords for internet marketers.

For the past 13 years, they have continued to improve on the Wealthy Affiliate platform. They are now owner and operator of one of the worlds leading website building platforms unmatched by any other company in the industry.

Why? Why Wealthy Affiliate?

I began writing poetry in high school. Over the years I set it aside to raise a family and frankly to make it through life. Three years ago I started writing again. Consequently, I could not reach the world unless I had a blog site. I set up a website and began to write.

But no matter how much I wrote I still couldn’t get a following on my website, so no one saw mycredit cards with an X through it work. My work is written to inspire others and help them. I was helping a few but not as many as I wanted to help.

I searched and researched, but I didn’t understand how to get my work ranked on google. One day I was looking for reviews on a particular company and stumbled across a site talking about Wealthy Affiliate. They spoke about learning affiliate marketing which I will explain better in the next paragraph. The one thing that caught my eye was “no credit card required.” I put my email in and had a look around

Affiliate marketing? I don’t understand!

You may already know what affiliate marketing is, but I had no clue. The Wealthy Affiliate gears this platform toward beginners. I will assume you are also a beginner and I will explain in greater detail what this all means.

Affiliate marketing is easy; you become an affiliate (free partner) of companies who sell the products you promote. In the Wealthy Affiliate training, you will learn how to select from 598,500,000 products to sell on your website. When someone affiliate programs 175clicks on the link and purchases an item, you make a commission from the affiliate company. Once again this is why I call it my wealthy affiliate. I am a part of Wealthy Affiliate, I have made new wonderful friends and added to my family.

You can build a website in any niche you choose and promote any products from an affiliate company. Or you can become affiliated with numerous companies and have multiple sites. Initially, you get two websites, but what you upgrade to a premium member, you get 25 websites which are an unbeatable difference.

A niche, a nitch, a hitch

A niche is a passion that moves you. You feel so strongly about it that you want to tell the world about what you love. But let’s say you don’t know what that is, no problem. Wealthy Affiliate has JAAXY. Jaaxy is a platform developed by affiliate marketers built strictly for affiliate marketers. jaaxy banner find high valueYou can search for niche ideas and keywords to let the world know about your new hidden passion. Not only that but, you can look at your competition and choose a niche that is just perfect for you.

My Wealthy Affiliate offers Jaaxy as a platform search tool.

I have to be honest. You get 30 free keyword searches. As a result of your growing business, you may need more than 30. If this is so, you will need to upgrade to a higher level. Premium does not include a higher level of Jaaxy. But with the upgrade to premium within Wealthy Affiliate you get a 50% discount on Jaaxy upgrades.

The treasure within

I quickly realized WA talks about free membership, but I view it as a 7-day trial to see if it is what you want to do. A 7-day trial or free membership didn’t bother me because I felt that seven days without giving them a credit card was a good deal. An option such of as this gave me time to make a crucial life-changing decision on how I want to spend my money.

I began the first ten FREE lessons. In those beginning lessons, I learned more in 5 days than I could find out in 3 years on my own.

First 6 out of 10 lessons that sealed it for me

1. Getting Rolling!

an overview of WA and the platform

2. Understanding How to Make Money Online

understanding affiliate marketing and the many ways to generate an income

3. Choose a Niche

understanding and choosing a passion that you can make a living.

4. Building Your OWN Niche Website

step-by-step training on building your  website

5. Setting Up Your Website

designing your website in 3 easy steps taught by the co-founder Kyle

6. Getting Your Site Ready for Search Engines

At this point, I knew Wealthy Affiliate was for me. Everything I had been researching for three years and did not understand I found in this training. Wealth Affiliate taught me secrets that lifted a weight off of my shoulders. I had arrived. Becoming premium was the most significant step and one of the most important decisions I have ever made to change my life.

I also knew that Google could now see my writing because the extensive training taught me how to properly optimize it to rank number 1 on the search engines.

There are four more lessons in the free offer, but when I finished this one, I became premium. After listening to the way, Kyle had set up each teaching and what an incredible teacher he is I didn’t need to hear more to make my decision. My wealthy affiliate had become a part of my life.

World-class time-tested platform? What did I see?

I saw a community built on the “pay it forward principle.” I grew to love the kindness and helpfulness of individuals within a whole new world of the internet.a service you can trust

For the first five days before becoming premium, I was allowed to read all of the blogs posted within the community and learn from all of the questions and answers from premium members. The WA community had some of the most incredible experts I had ever met. I knew if I became a premium member I would have full access to unlimited training, private messaging, and live chat.

When I decided to move up, I acquired unlimited ability to ask any question at any time. Wealthy Affiliate is an international company. Someone is always awake in the world. With my premium subscription, I private messaged other members, and I received answers and technical support almost immediately. 

I had 24/7/365 day support for my website.  Some companies take up to 24 hours to answer a question. When you are trying to reach the world 24 hours feels like a lifetime.

Money Money, Money, is it for you?

Money is for almost everyone. We all want money or need money or like money. But the question here is; Is Wealthy Affiliate the type of place for you. It’s not for everyone. It’s not a get rich quick scheme.

I have to be honest with you here. Due to my desire to reach the world, I didn’t even consider I could make money with Wealthy Affiliate.  Becoming a premium member was not because of the money. Instead, it was to accomplish the goal I set for myself three years ago. I didn’t catch on until later into the program that I could make money.

But now that I know what kind of treasure is inside I am thrilled all over again. It takes work and time and effort. If you consider yourself to have good work ethics and are a person of integrity, then WA may be for you. Do you want to be proud of the work you put in for the gain you receive? Then WA may be for you.

Will you make money in the first month. Probably not. There is a step-by-step process to grow and become an owner of your business. Do you want to be an entrepreneur? Do you want to set your own time and be your boss? Then it might be for you.

But if you are looking for a way to make money fast and do little to no work for it, then WA is not for you. If you are looking for someone to do the job for you, then WA is not for you. But if you want to be proud of the work you put in for the gain you receive? Then WA is for you.

Informed decisions

I have given you my honest opinion of Wealthy Affiliate. You have the information needed to make a well-informed decision. I am sure you are starting to see why I call WA my wealthy affiliate-it might be for you. To sum it up;

  1. Wealthy Affiliate is a company that has tested the hands of time for 13 years and continued to grow.
  2. Training that is unparalleled, extensive and thorough.
  3. The community support 24/7/365.
  4. You have the opportunity to try it out for seven days before you make a decision to become premium or you can stay on the Free program forever. photo of a lighted key
  5. It gives you a sense of accomplishment and pride in the work you produce
  6. And above all, you will learn how to make money so you can resign from your job to work at home to build a legacy.

The decision is yours. Step inside and have a look around. On the inside be sure to give us a bit of information about yourself in the bio and post a photo of yourself. Your bio and photo will help me find and connect with you.

When you take this first step, please fill out the profile with your photo and a brief statement as to who you are. This information will make it much easier for me to connect with you.

If you become a premium member within the first seven days, I have a bonus for you. I will be in touch with you on the inside in the form of a message on your profile. I am looking forward to meeting you, coaching you and watching your success as you grow.

I would love to answer your questions. I am here to assist you in any way I can. Please leave a comment below, and I will be back with you very shortly.

  1. Dear Laura,

    Thanks for the informative and details packed post on Wealthy Affiliate.

    To share my own experience…

    I am a fan of Wealthy Affiliate… And its the genuine and awesome program I came across online. I lost a lot of many trying many programs and when I joined WA on November 2016 I was skeptical and was afraid.

    To cut the long story short…

    I am still with WA and because of WA I am a full-time blogger working from home (Since December 2017).

    I am happy you are guiding people in the right path towards a genuine program which changed many lives.

    Wishing you great success!


    • Paul, thank you for stopping by and reading my post. You are a great testimony to the incredible platform Wealthy Affiliate has to offer. I am truly blessed to be a member also. 


  2. Great review of Wealthy Affiliate!

    I love your transparency and honesty about the program and your experience. I think being transparent is key to helping others make an informed decision. 

    I’m still new at Wealthy Affiliate but have learned SO much from the training I’ve completed up to this point. The training is so easy to follow even for those who have no idea how to build a website which was me in the beginning. This platform is like no other and I am truly greatful to be apart of it. 

    Kind regards 


    • Thank you Christine. I agree I love Wealthy Affiliate. I have learned so very much and progressed rapidly because of the easy to follow training. 


  3. Wow, that was all the inspiration I need for the rest of 2018! Wealthy Affiliate is, hands down, the top of the line when it comes to online passive income. The training is superb, the community is supreme, and Laura, you wrote an absolutely spectacular and honest representation of what Wealthy Affiliate is all about! 

    I appreciate having read this. Thank you, Laura. You really have inspired me to continue pursuing greatness, as you will many people in the future!

    • Dom, Thank you so much. You just made my day. so kind of you to stop by and visit. Wealthy Affiliate is the absolute best.

  4. This is such a wonderful site for Wealthy Affiliate! If I wasn’t a premium member already, I would have came in through this invitation for sure!

    I had bad experiences, luckily I did not loose any money, but they were just one right after the other, then I came across Wealthy Affiliate. I felt the same as you, right at home.

    Thank you for the wonderful read, and I hope you get the message out as to how wonderful WA is and all that you can do for yourself here too!

  5. I have been a member of wealthy affiliate for more than a year now and I am thoroughly enjoying my time within the community.Wealthy affiliate training is quite easy to follow for any age group and background.What I like most about this is you can create a thriving business on any topic.

    • Thanks for stopping by. You are so right about Wealthy Affiliate. It is for beginners and novice alike. Continue to enjoy your journey. 


  6. I am definitely glad to have joined Wealthy Affiliate a couple years ago. Before, I always thought that I would never be able to build a blog that gets decent traffic to it. I always thought that the more established popular blogs out there would beat me if I ever tried to join their ranks. It didn’t help having people say that someone else is already doing it. 

    I am glad that the course is helping me get traffic to my website and look forward to many more years doing so.

    Did people ever tell you the same thing they told me? “You won’t be able to compete with more established bloggers”.


    • Jessie, I know what you mean. It is scary to think about setting up a website and blogging. But it is soooo easy to do following the teaching of Kyle. And the tools that are available to us to drive free traffic to our sites is incredible. I do love Wealthy Affiliate and what I can accomplish here. 


  7. I have heard a little bit about Wealthy Affiliate and I have been doing some more research to find out if this is a legit way to make money online.  My first question for you is about the free account.  Can you explain a little more about this?  You mentioned a 7 day trial period, is that what this free account is?  I am definitely interested in checking out the free membership and take a look around, but if there are upsells after that, I may be out.  So many of these platforms bring you in for a low introductory price and then get you with the upsells.  Thanks for sharing your honest opinion, I appreciate it.  I look forward to hearing back from you.

    • Steve,

       I would love to explain more. You can sign up to Wealthy Affiliate on a free account. You can set up 2 websites under the site rubix platform. You will have access to the first 10 lessons of the niche set up and the affiliate program. That is a total of 20 lessons. Kyle one of the owners does all of the teaching and he is incredible. You can stay with the free site if you like or you can upgrade to premium for $29 the first month and $49 monthly thereafter or yearly which offers a discount. 

      I used the term 7 day trial because I do not think you would be very successful if you stayed on the free plan. The premium plan offers so much more teaching and support as well as 50 websites and 50 plus training sessions. With premium you get full support and ability to private message other members of the group. You also have access to training produced by experienced WA members. It is an unbeatable deal. 

      The price is incredible for what is included. If you are interested I will be happy to send you a comparison chart outlining  the difference. 

      I guess you could consider the premium an up-sale. I did not because it is one of the best offers in the industry. After that you can pay for premium plugins and things like that but none of those are crucial to your business and making money. Wealthy Affiliate does not require any of these nor do they make money off of them. 

      Thank You Steve. If I can help to answer further questions please let me know. 


  8. I have been with Wealthy Affiliate for 3+ years now and love them.

    The community is awesome.  Everyone helps out and being able to contact Kyle and Carson on the fly is totally worth it.  They have both helped me numerous times.

    A lot of people don’t realize how essential it is to have good web hosting. One thing that I love is their web hosting.  Managed WordPress hosting for $300/year (I purchase on Black Friday).

    Sites are super fast with Wealthy Affiliate.  They use Amazon Cloud web hosting and you can host 25 websites on their servers.  

    However, I know your happy with Wealthy Affiliate.  Is there anything you would like to see added to their training.  Possibly something that would make them even better?

    • Garen, 

      That is really good information. Thank You. 

      I don’t usually think of anything to add to training because I search the training and usually find what I need. If I don’t then I ask a question of the community and it is quickly, professionally and kindly answered. 

      This is the beauty of Wealthy Affiliate. 


  9. This has to be the best most beautifully  written explanation of Wealthy Affiliate that I have come across. 

    It is genuine and very credible because you have written honestly about your own experience of it. 

    I hope you do really well with your blog and poetry within WA and soon have more traffic than you could dream of. You might well become a modern Rudyard Kipling. . Yours is a review I would like to share with others thinking about joining WA. 

    Thank you for sharing

    • Oh My Judy, Rudyard Kipling, what a compliment. Thank You so much. I love Wealthy Affiliate and I know I will go far with what they have provided for me. 

      Again, thank you. I so appreciate you comment. 


  10. I love the name of your post “My Wealthy Affiliate”.  I don’t think you’ve missed a thing, I have been looking into this program and everyone seems to have such great things to say.  I love that people are helping people,  you can’t figure something out?  Ask and there is always someone there to help out.  Great post thanks for all the information. 

    • You are welcome. My pleasure. If you need further assistance deciding on the program please let me know. Here at Wealthy Affiliate we do love helping with the moto Kyle and Carson set down of “pay it forward”


  11. Wealthy affiliate is certainly the best platform to learn about affiliate marketing and make money online. I have been a member of wealthy affiliate for last one year and enjoying my time within the community and learnt so many stuff that helped me to earn couple f hundrend dollars per month as of now. I would recommend to everyone who wants to start a career in online or  want to work from home.

    • It is work and takes focus and discipline. But it is worth every bit of it. The friends and family I have met here are like no other. Thank you for sharing your experience with us.
