My Personal Rating: 9/10

When I began my search to find legitimate ways to make money online, on my terms, and on my schedule, I was overwhelmed by the number of different roadblocks and scams that I found. But finally, after reading countless reviews and talking with a few people in the forums, I was told to check out an online education platform called Wealthy Affiliate. So, after being a member since June of 2016 I found it appropriate for me to write my honest wealthy affiliate review.

Wealthy Affiliate grabbed my attention right away for several reasons:

  1. They weren’t asking for my credit card information to get signed up.
  2. They were upfront and honest about what exactly they offer.
  3. They were offering an actual education that would teach me how to build a successful business online from scratch.
  4. I could do it on my own time, at my own pace, and have support along the way.

What it offers:

In it’s simplest form, Wealthy Affiliate teaches you how to take ANY passion, hobby, interest, etc. and turn it into a successful online business. Yes, anything!

  • Are you into the latest technology and love learning about all of the latest gadgets?
  • Are you into video games or online gaming?
  • Are you a skilled musician?
  • Are you into arts and crafts?
  • Are you into weight loss or body building?
  • Do you have a love for animals?
  • Do you have a love for hunting, fishing, or the great outdoors?
  • Do you love to travel?
  • Do you love tinkering with things and are a do-it-yourself kind of person?

All of these things listed above and the endless amount of others can be turned into a successful online business. People are doing it every single day and changing their lives! It’s time to start channeling your passion and share it with the world.

Today there are 3.75 billion people online. Yes, billion. Those people are searching for the very thing that YOU are passionate about. Their search results can take them to websites, YouTube videos, and social media posts that are created by passionate people…like you.

The training with Wealthy Affiliate begins by helping you identify that passion and begin building a website where you can communicate and share it with the world. Don’t worry, it only takes 30 seconds to establish your basic website and you can do it right there within the program using one of the best website building platforms in the world. Then you build on it from there by following step-by-step tutorials where Kyle will let you look over his shoulder as he builds his own website right before your eyes.

Once you get your basic website established and start building regular content, you will learn how to get your website indexed in the search engines, start bringing in traffic, monetize your site (start making money), and effectively market your site through various social media and email marketing techniques.

Here are the things that are covered in the 1st level of certification.:

My Honest Wealthy Affiliate Review Lessons

One of my favorite features is the live weekly webinar (premium feature), usually hosted by Jay. Jay covers a great multitude of topics and walks you through things that have made him successful and helps you to avoid some of the mistakes he has made over the years. Occasionally he will also do live website reviews where you can submit your site and have him give you great suggestions on how to make it even better!

After some time and dedication, you will begin to see results. I received my very first commission after 6 weeks of dedicated, consistent work.

Aside from all of the education, there is what I something that I personally consider equally or even more valuable. That’s the community, or rather, the family. The people who are enrolled are amazing. There are over 800,000 people who are enrolled who are on the same journey as you. They began with nothing but a desire to learn and a passion they wanted to share with the world.

Everyone that I’ve come in contact with has an honest desire to help you succeed. It’s not about competition. We celebrate each other’s victories and frustrations as well. We jump in to help each other understand why that plug-in just won’t cooperate or what the best way to ______ is.

Bottom line: someone ALWAYS has your back!

Who is it for:

  • A person who has a passion for ANYTHING
  • A person who is fed up with having a 9 to 5 schedule and wants to create their own
  • A person who is fed up with the daily grind of a J.O.B. and feels like they are getting nowhere
  • A person who wants to fire their boss and be in charge of their own success
  • A person who wants to supplement their income, save for the dream vacation, pay off some debt, or even start working towards a full-time income
  • A person who wants to turn dreams into goals, and goals into reality and have a lot of fun doing it
  • A person who wants to create their own online business from the comfort of their own home
  • A person who is willing to put in some time and effort, learn something new, and start working towards great results
  • A person who is retired or about to retire and wants to earn some passive income
  • A stay at home parent who wants to start bringing in some extra income

Who is it NOT for:

  • A person who is trying to get rich quick (Hint: those are scams)
  • A person who is not willing to put in the time and effort to learn and achieve success


  • Step-by-step instructions (with video) on how to build a successful online business from the ground up.My Honest Wealthy Affiliate Review Hacking Attempts
  • Free website hosting
  • 2 free .siterubix domains to get you started
  • 24/7 website support and daily backup
  • 99.9% website uptime and 24/7 website monitoring to help keep hackers out
  • Feedback/comment section that will help you make your site even better
  • The community: 24/7 chat and amazing forums to help answer any question you have


  • There is a LOT of information coming at you and it can seem overwhelming at first. (Tip: click the “Get Started Here” tab and stick with the training. The more you wander the more you will be overwhelmed by how much there is to learn, but it will all come in time.)My Honest Wealthy Affiliate Review Getting Started Button
  • Picking a niche can be difficult at first. I was stuck on this step for the better part of a month because I’m passionate about many things and had a hard time narrowing down one. I’m actually on my 2nd niche pick now because I feel far more passionate about it now that I understand how it all works. While there is a great forum to help you figure that out, people will offer their opinions on what YOU are passionate about. (Tip: stick to your gut feeling and find a way to run with it!)


How will I make money doing this? – There are multiple ways to making money by following this program. They are all explained in full detail within the training. Here are just a few of the ways:

  • Affiliate programs (referring people to buy helpful products related to your niche)
  • Google Adsense (allowing Google to place relevant ads on your site that you earn money when people click on them)
  • Direct advertisers (you can ask relevant companies if they would like to advertise on your website for a fee),

How long will it take me to make money? – This is really dependent on how serious you are and how much work you are willing to put into it. If you can commit to publishing regular content you will be generating traffic in no time.

Traffic and helpful content will produce trust.
Trust will produce conversions.
Conversions will produce revenue.

The general answer seems to be, “between 3 to 6 months”. I personally, made my first commission within 6 weeks. I had my first referral in 2 weeks. I was hard working, dedicated, and thirsty to learn everything I possibly could. I was relentless. No one can honestly answer this question because it’s all based on you, your niche, and how well you connect with your audience.

But don’t quit your day job until you’ve got some solid traffic and money coming in. Stick to the training and you WILL see success. Just keep learning, and most importantly, APPLYING. If your schedule allows, try to get through a lesson a day. Apply what you learned. Wash, rinse, and repeat!

If you can find even a few hours a week you can start building a “skyscraper business” that can earn you supplemental and even full-time income in the months and years to come.

How much money can I make doing this? – That’s another question that’s hard to answer directly. Because it depends on the products you are promoting, your niche, and your clientele.

However, I know a person personally who is making $300/day doing this! He’s dedicated and puts everything into it. It’s totally possible to make that and even more with just 1 website. Every day within the community I’m bumping elbows with brand new internet marketers and full-time millionaires! Just keep building and be willing to ask for help and you’ll be amazed at how much success can come your way.

I’m really not into “writing”. How well will I do with this? – That’s the beauty of it. It’s not about “writing”, it’s about communicating. If you love to post on social media you are already on your way to being able to communicate your message. It’s just about putting thought into what you want to say and how you want to say it. You don’t need to be the next Shakespear to be successful with this.

People are looking for you to be real, honest, helpful and communicate on their level.

Plus there are many great tools out there that will help you with the grammar, spelling, and readability!

I don’t know anything about hosting or building websites, is it hard? – Not at all. As I mentioned above, it will take you about 30 seconds to get a website up and running. Then, if you are like me, you’ll spend some time tweaking your theme and adding plug-ins to find something that matches your style! The hosting is free and is done right here within the Wealthy Affiliate interface.

Will I receive feedback and help to build my website? – Yes. I constantly submit my websites and pages for feedback and constructive criticism. If I’m ever stuck or have any questions I just jump on the live chat or the forums and within minutes I have the help/answer I’m looking for!My Honest Wealthy Affiliate Community

Is it really free to get started? Will I have to go premium to be successful? – Yes it’s completely free to get started. No credit card required! You will get access to the first level of the certification training (currently, there are 5 levels), and the boot camp training as well. You get 7 days of premium access and 2 free websites.

Once you have completed the free training you will be hungry for more and want to dive in and really push your business to start making things happen. So, yes you ultimately will want to go premium to make a successful career at this. The information you gain is priceless.

As mentioned above, the premium cost is $49/month ($1.62/day).

There is also a HUGE discount if you decide to go yearly. The yearly cost is $359 ($0.98/day)!

Here is a breakdown to show you what the different levels offer:
