First and foremost, I found this while doing research on these on line work from home business. I am just kind of put off with your review because honestly they way you described your actions and attitude to the company in general, I would have reacted in much the same way but I would not have been as nice about it. Let's face it....you were rude. You know what they say, "you get what you give. I don't think anyone out there who has out the time and effort into creating such a training program would be okay with any one skipping ahead to what they think they need. You came off like a know it all and nobody likes that. So in my opinion, you tried something, it didn't work so, you didn't get your way and so basically this is your rendition of throwing a tantrum...grow up!!!!
I don’t know how you can even have a royal battle with WordPress. Seriously??? WordPress is one of the easiest and yet most powerful content management system in the internet world. There are tons of support you can get inside Wealthy Affiliate and also from WordPress if you get stuck on anything WordPress or Wealthy Affiliate training. All you had to do was ASK QUESTIONS.

Don’t be fooled by that. If you mention that you are thinking about going premium but need time to think, they will extend that offer indefinitely. However, I think if you have already read many of the comments here, you wold go for the sensible option and save your money. Hosting a website with your own domain name is very cheap these days. All other services you will get from WA is available totally free if you bother to look for it.

If you have skills and are a website developer, graphic designer, professional writer or something like that then you may not need basic instructions and need to learn as you go but for the rest of us, having a plan and working consistently and always learning is what wealthy affiliate can offer and my investment is worth every cent. I am saving $300 a year on hosting on just one website (for my offline business) I have moved from a local hosting company to wealthy affiliate… I make $300 a year without doing a darn thing…
The ads in affiliate programs are linked to company websites and are referred to as affiliate links. Affiliates generally have to apply for the affiliate programs, though the majority of the affiliate programs cost nothing to join. When an online visitor click the affiliate link, the visitor is redirected to the advertiser's website and if the customer/visitor makes a purchase, the affiliate is then paid a commission.
While many people attempt to understand and wrap their minds around the internet marketing industry as a whole, there are others out there that have truly mastered the field. Now, if you're asking yourself what the term internet marketing actually means, it simply boils down to a number of marketing activities that can be done online. This includes things like affiliate marketing, email marketing, social media marketing, blogging, paid marketing, search engine optimization and so on.
This is especially important if you have superiors to which you must report about Internet marketing. Although you may be able to turn data into a strategy easily, reports and graphs are essential in order to communicate that data to people who control the budget. Spend time making comprehensive reports and perhaps making a PowerPoint presentation based on your research.
Affiliate networks are intermediaries between merchants that sell products and affiliates that promote them. Joining one benefits merchants and affiliates alike. Affiliate networks allow publishers the ability to search through merchants (advertisers) and join them in one place. Furthermore, they allow merchants to reach a larger audience and promote them to all affiliates in the network.
The ONLY way you will make money is by creating a 'practice' blog page (which becomes your sole purpose) that markets your affiliation with Wealthy Affiliates! In fact, so MANY pages have been created for this purpose that their SEO is AMAZING! It's genius really! They made it so that even if you look up complaints you will be hard pressed to find me, and instead only sites that are cronies just promoting themselves. It's the worst case of writing reviews for yourself that I've ever seen. 

Good news is, Wealthy Affiliate goes on to say that within the first few lessons you’re going to learn the techniques that will allow you to get an abundance, no wait…ABUNDANCE of relevant customers to your site by way of organic search. Most folks reading this have no idea just how difficult this is. If you know how to do it, then it’s mainly just hard work, but for those of you that don’t understand the process…you’re in for a long education full of trial and error.

“I only ask you this because you made the above comment “there is no way you can use their hosting platform and WordPress installer to set up a successful site. There may be sites which are doing well on their platform, but they were built 6-8 years ago and are well indexed by now. Removing this from the equation significantly lessens the value of their membership.”
One of the reasons I like Wealthy Affiliate is because it enables me to provide this blog for free to people, but also be able to sell a genuinely high-quality product that I know is always updated and provides a better service than I ever could. Plus, when people sign up using my affiliate link, I can still provide one-on-one coaching and support as a way to add value and as a “thank you” for signing up using my link. Wealthy Affiliate truly is a win-win-win setup.

That is no longer true. You can now use their hosting platform and WordPress installer, you no longer have to register a domain at a separate domain site like godaddy.com. They have updated some things and added some great new tools. I do respect your opinion, but there are still lots of people becoming successful from what is being taught at Wealthy Affiliate especially when they start getting into niches they are really interested in. Wealthy Affiliate is not perfect, but there is nothing out there that is. It isn’t for everybody, but if you definitely want to get the basics and some great tools, WA is definitely a great place to start.
Want to know a little secret about this site? When I first started this site, I only planned on monetizing by selling my OWN affiliate marketer training course. About halfway through creating my course, I realized that I would never be able to provide the type of quality product I intended. Even if I could, it would become outdated so fast that in just a couple years, I wouldn’t be able to sell it anymore.

Direct marketing is a form of advertising that allows businesses and organizations to communicate directly with customers through a variety of media, such as phone calls, text messages, emails, fliers, brochures, and targeted online ads. Since it's an aggressive form of marketing, it can work to grow a customer base, but it needs to be carefully planned and implemented. To get started with your planning, learn about the basics of direct marketing first.


I know what you mean. Regularly writing lots of content and getting not much in return, it’s a hard road to go down. And the thing is, if you are able to write lots of content and you want to earn money doing it, you can join Textbroker and get paid per article. I know it’s not residual income, but it gives you a better return on your time up front.
If you think the customer service of Wealthy Affiliate is terrible, then we want to know the name of some other companies from where you are getting much more fast response than from Wealthy Affiliate. May be you either don't know how to use the support system of Wealthy Affiliate or you simply hate Wealthy Affiliate, otherwise there is not any reason to say the support of Wealthy Affiliate is terrible when they provide various kinds of support, such as Live Chat support, 24/7 community support, direct messages to the owner of Wealthy Affiliate, SiteRubix support for technical issues, owners profile comment support, sponsor support and so on. However, it seems may be you only use the community support and find some rude persons there because in community support sometime you can find the members like you who doesn't have any relation with Wealthy Affiliate. We are with Wealthy Affiliate from 2014 and till now we have never seen any team of Wealth Affiliate including owners have ever made any rude comment to anyone.
I’m thinking of starting a blog, but unfortunately my passion is to discuss different varieties and species of fruit (tropical and non tropical). And produce is different all over the world, and isn’t really something that can get advertising and affiliates (right?) And there aren’t any products I could advertise on that kind of blog, because it’s just fruit. So is Wealth Affiliate not even something that I could consider using? I’d appreciate your input. Thank you!
When I enrolled in WA, I almost immediately had misgivings, which I ignored at first, about two things: 1) using their platform to build sites, as you mentioned, and 2) the bootcamp, which had too much of a circular flavor for my taste – and for my trust. I was actually surprised that so many people would promote WA instead of developing a personal niche. Looking backwards, bootcamp sites are easy to spot: they all have a link at the top called “My #1 Recommendation” or something similar. So much for originality.
You can read about it in the ripoff reports or on SBI site or in the public record. They lost the lawsuit and waiting for the judge to rule on damages. Probably a hefty award of cash to the damaged party and an order to remove all the fake reviews. Since training people write fake reviews bashing products and programs they never used is the gist of their marketing plan (just dirty) they will likely lose alot of members. SBI they had some actual studies done with interesting results that totally debunk WA claims. I think those are on the site

Sniply is a powerful tool that allows you to attach a call-to-action on every piece of content you share. Because the content you are sharing lives on a website that you don’t control, there is very little chance that the user will visit your site after reading the article. However, Sniply allows you to put a inbound button or CTA into a frame that the article sits inside. Thus, giving you some control of the platform and perpetuating traffic from the non-affiliated content that you share.


This review is right on the money. I know exactly what Craig is saying here because I’ve been in the online space for quite some time now ;). The information in WA is not incorrect, but as Craig said, the process is grossly oversimplified. This is probably intended to draw in newbies more easily. Look at it like this, each of those main steps probably have like 50-100 substeps, if not more, lol. You have to be disciplined, learn and absorb all the theory and apply it, but folks suffer too much from Get Rich Quick mentality and impatience online. Think about it, if it takes REAL work to build a regular bricks and mortar business, what makes you think it won’t take you work to build a business that just simply happens to based online? It is still all within the realm of this universe, law, and universal laws hold haha. Anyway, not meaning to be facetious. All else being equal, the best thing about an business that happens to be based online is the ability it has to SCALE! That’s where the real advantages come in IMHO. Best of luck to you all
In catalog marketing, catalogs are mailed to a specified list of customers or provide physical catalogs to a group of people at stores in order to sell particular products. A catalog is a combination of at least eight printed pages which includes details of multiple products along with the identification of direct ordering mechanism. A complete line of goods is offered through catalogs by some stores. There are many direct retailers who place the catalogs of their product on the internet. The internet based catalogs are passive in nature and therefore need to be marketed electronically.

Search: 49% of US spending on Internet ads goes to search, in which advertisers pay for prominent placement among listings in search engines whenever a potential customer enters a relevant search term, allowing ads to be delivered to customers based upon their already-indicated search criteria.[34] This paid placement industry generates more than $10 billion for search companies. Marketers also use search engine optimization to drive traffic to their sites.
