This Is Ok in my mind, because it is Your right, Im glad we can express ourselves. Im also glad You took the time for yourself, to look into WA.  I hope you will Understand my comment is on the otherside of yours. Im not a robot in any shape or form. I believe with all my experiance that its a good program and we both took our time here to express ourselves. We both deserve the respect for our opinion's. I respect yours You have a great life,my best wishes to your success JB
When neophytes in the area of website development look for help, they need WA or something very close. The saying goes, how do you eat an elephant? … the answer “one bite at a time”. WA feeds the “website-development-elephant” one bite at a time. I am, by nature, critical. I listen carefully and read carefully not only what is being said but also what is not being said. Do they promote their system, of course, why wouldn’t they?
I joined WA a few months and a premium member now. For the 1st time, I am reading WA from outside. I decided to join WA by reading a few articles from the web which I really liked. There is not a single day I have not enjoyed. Every day I see people converting, sites getting ranked, people getting to 1st page, even ranked #1 of Goole. It is lots of hard work and you got to be a skilled writer in your niche. The community help is unparallel. The longest I have seen the conversion is 3.5 years. But the person said he started the website before completing the training and made a mistake. He was about to give up when he saw 4 figure/ month conversion. He has ~200 posts. It feels good to see lots research and authority gained over the time. It is lot smaller time frame compared to my Ph.D. You are always told it takes 3-4 years to see any conversion. People having no tech knowledge are making a good income. I am learning SEO and WP management in my spare time to help myself. It is addictive.
It is more good to create your own niche website and promote that thing in which you are expert or simply make a website in your own subject of interest and learn to drive traffic and just earn from the advertisements within your website without selling anything or recruiting anyone. However, still you can take some benefit by promoting WA as well. But we more prefer you to make your own niche website by following WA lessons in order to earn good income.
Well written article, I have learned new affiliate networks, that I didn’t have knowledge about. Affiliate marketing is one of the best ways to make big money online. Many people try it, but give up when sales don’t come, in my opinion, achieving success in affiliate marketing requires you to choose the right networks to promote, and have patience. Simple advice should be not to try to promote everything you come across, do research and test to find out what works best. Thanks for sharing this great article.
Being a current premium member of WA since 2015, active on and off mostly off, but hosting three sites with them, two professional and one monetized, I was expecting to thoroughly disagree with your review; however, I was in many respects surprised and pleased. For the most part, it was insightful and spot-on and while I do see and agree with many of your assertions, I don’t necessarily agree with your conclusion.
Anyway, I’m thankful that I didn’t spend too much time on creating sites there and that I didn’t put any significant content before deciding to leave. I will now peruse some free training and then try two courses that are a bit pricey but seem more useful, The Authority Site System (from the Authority Hacker site), and SEO Affiliate Domination. I’m just starting to read the SEO Affiliate Domination free crash course, and as far as Authority Hacker is concerned, I can say that I got far more useful information in their free webinar alone that in all five WA courses combined. I first learned about these courses on Jeremy Harrison’s Hustle Life site. (He also says that WA is good but not great.) If anyone has tried the two aforementioned courses, I’d like to hear about it.
By building enormous amounts of value, Facebook and Google both became tremendously successful. They didn't focus on revenues at the outset. They focused on value. And every single blog and business must do the same. While this might run contrary to someone who's short on cash and hoping that internet marketing is going to bring them a windfall overnight, it doesn't quite work that way.
These days, I think the hardest part of the SEO formula exists in the more technical aspects, i.e., good coding practices, site speed, site architecture, etc. Provided you have the desire and ability to write quality content, your time and money is better spent on learning the more technical nuances of SEO, which is why I recommend something like Treehouse over WA.

The term "junk mail", referring to unsolicited commercial ads delivered via post office or directly deposited in consumers' mail boxes, can be traced back to 1954.[25] The term "spam," meaning "unsolicited commercial e-mail," can be traced back to March 31, 1993,[26] although in its first few months it merely referred to inadvertently posting a message so many times on UseNet that the repetitions effectively drowned out the normal flow of conversation.

Thank you very much. I signed up to a few here and I am very grateful to you for making all of this valuable information available – you have saved me time. I could not sign up to Shopify as it just kept on reloading page to SIGN IN and not create a new account – confusing. VigLink does not allow a new account sign up either.. Rakuten did not say if they charge to be apart of their affiliate prog and actually there is no sign up for that option. If you can help me with these three prog’s… Read more »
In most countries, customers also have the right to unsubscribe to unsolicited catalogs and to block bulk emails from their in-boxes. A number of anti-spam and anti-tracking initiatives are also prevalent online. Customers cannot usually completely prevent targeted marketing, but they can often do a lot to help keep the information stored on them in check.
Many people are unaware of how the personal information they include on an order form or survey may be used for targeted advertising later, which can open the direct marketing industry up to criticism — people usually want full disclosures of how their information can or will be used before providing it. One prevailing philosophy in direct mailing circles is the idea that if a customer orders one item — swimsuit from a clothing catalog, for example — he or she might naturally be interested in related items like swimming pool supplies or exercise equipment as well. This could lead to direct marketing overload as potential customers become overwhelmed with catalogs, unsolicited emails and unwanted phone calls.
The learning something new that someone brought up, but it’s a lot to pay for, and most of these people don’t validate anything-oh they made money? Wow, is it consistent, did you work hard at it, promote something other than WA and bait and switch people and what not. Those are behind the scenes, and even if some people have had success, it’s through WA boot camp, and they spend forever doing it. I’m sticking around for more comments to post/pages and a couple other things, but yeah I though about that already. Only time will tell right?

…But doesn’t being an affiliate for Wealthy Affiliate make me just another one of those affiliate marketers who is being biased and just trying to make a buck off of you? Well, ummmm…. Sort of! But at least I’m honest about it, right? I hope you give me a chance by continuing to read this Wealthy Affiliate review. I have no intention of making this one big sales pitch. I just want to provide you with the information and allow you to make your own decision. If I get a commission, great! If not, that’s ok too. Here’s a screenshot of my Wealthy Affiliate profile.
The biggest issue I’ve had with previous training programs and marketing communities is how outdated they get. With a Wealthy Affiliate Premium membership, you don’t need to worry about that. New trainings are added daily including live weekly video training sessions. You can also search and browse past trainings they’ve created over the years. With a premium membership, you also get unlimited access to community features which is one of my favorite aspects of Wealthy Affiliate. I spend hours per day simply chatting and messaging people who clicked on my Wealthy Affiliate affiliate link. When they use my link to sign up, I get notified, and the personal one-on-one coaching can begin. No other platform has offered this option before.

Saw another “great tip” as a response to the same member from a guy who claims to rank very highly in the search engines. Apparently he does all his SEO work at around 3am when everyone else is sleeping. Just the image in my mind of him sneakily switching on his computer in order not to wake the rest of the world was enough to make me spill my sherbet all over the desk.
On the other hand, in Wealthy Affiliate, you will learn to create your own business online. You will learn to create your own website and make that website ranking good at search pages like Google, Bing, Yahoo, Duckduckgo, etc. due to which you will get good traffic to your website. Once you will get the good traffic (visitors) to your website, you will also learn to make money from that traffic in various ways like by selling the products of reputed companies such as Amazon, eBay or by placing the advertisements of companies like Google AdSense and so on. So, you will write the contents for your own website, not to sell to others like in Upwork or Fiverr. And that content will keep on bringing new traffic for you forever due to which you can continuously earn income.
Generally, direct marketing campaigns should target people who have expressed interest or are likely to be interested in what your company offers rather than mass marketing campaigns used to create general awareness. For example, a new ice cream shop may want to send coupons shaped like ice cream cones to local households with kids at the start of summer. More targeted and personalized campaigns usually generate better results.

Pretty awesome! Wealthy Affiliate sounds almost to good to be true. Everyone out there, scam or not (which is almost impossible to know off the bat), is asking for quite some money to provide you with training to make money online. WA not offers the most complete training but you can also host up to 50 sites with the fee you pay. I think it's definitely worth a look and I have begun my free training. From what I have seen up to now, I will become Premium very soon. I definitely like what's here. Thanks for writing this post. I (and many others) appreciate it!
If your team is making investments into PPC ad campaigns on platforms like Google, Bing, Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn, it's probably a bit of a hassle to manage all the different ad campaigns you're running across each different network. Besides just managing them, you then have to try and report on the results of all of them. What a struggle. Luckily, there's a tool for that.
You are saying $47 is expensive for Asian Countries. Now you know that we are also from Asian country and according to us, more than 65% Asian people can arrange $47 per month if they compromise any of their luxury habit such as going to expensive restaurant, drinking in bar, buying expensive wines, buying cigarettes, buying expensive cloths than average ones, spoiling child by buying expensive toys more than needed, buying accessary like expensive mobiles only to show instead of real using it etc. We are not saying poor people can afford it. But, the middle class Asian People who can afford laptops, mobiles and internet, those can sure manage $47 investment per month for their future income. That is also only for around 5-6 months because after that they will start to earn more than $47 per month.

I know for a fact that English is not the first language of my “sponsor” and got several automated messages from him. I actually challenged him at his own website about WA several weeks ago using my own name and any negative comment that I made have now been removed from his sales page. Direct messages sent to him can produce some interesting answers as he clearly does not understand English. So in conclusion, I have enjoyed most of my dealings related to WA, although they can become annoying at times. If anyone is gullible enough to part with their money to spend on such a charade, they only have themselves to blame. I just glad that I was never infected even though I thought about it once upon a time. Now I have no doubts and will continue with my own “proper job”. ?


I’ve found with WA that it does give a good way to get people started in networking and building relationships. It’s a sound way of also learning the principles of affiliate marketing, where it’s done right and ethically. I do agree the platform itself is outdated and has been for some time. It’s ideal for those that are new, but doesn’t really serve a purpose for experienced marketers
Sure, Nigerian or anyone from restricted countries who resides in the United State of America or any eligible region can fully registered in Wealthy Affiliate and in that case if they go back to their country, in your case Nigeria after some months, then sure they can access everything from that restricted country as well because once someone registered in WA, they can log in and work from any country, even from the restricted ones.
Well if you can travel out of Nigeria, then that would be the best option because once you join WA from another country, then after that even you can log in and work from Nigeria without any problem. It is only banned to registered from Nigeria. Actually, many people from Nigeria has already joined WA by asking their friends and families outside the country to help them to join WA.
Update 3: Wealthy Affiliate has completely banned people from Nigeria to join WA even as a premium member because of continuous hacking and cheating incident from Nigeria. Wealthy Affiliate knows it is not a good decision to ban everyone from one country just due to the act of some people, but they take this decision after trying every measures they can to save their site from such incident. So, we are very sorry for this. However, if you are from Nigeria and you want to join Wealthy Affiliate, then you can go for second choice after Wealthy Affiliate which is ChrisFarrellMembership and about which you can find detail by clicking this link:- newsonlineincome.com/chris-farrell-membership/
The allure of so-called internet riches is nothing new. At every bend and turn in a gauntlet of online gurus, you'll find internet marketers looking to hype up this supposed dream of making money online or earning passive income while kicking up your feet and letting the cash roll in. While internet marketing doesn't quite work that way, in that you actually do have to put in the work, it isn't too difficult to separate the proverbial men from the boys when it comes to the real online earners.
Wow. This was very well done. I learned so much and I've been on the site for a month. You did an excellent job explaining how the program works and its nuances. Thank you for the updates on banned countries. I'm sure I did not know the challenges WA faced in other countries. The service needs to stay available to everyone. I will certainly follow your in the future. Thanks.
Hi Andrew, I have also been following the YouTube videos presented by Income School. These guys are genuinely nice guys and they really do have the stuff to back up their claims. I have actually been considering a registration with them. They have been building passive income sites for years now and I believe that when they say that they guide you to do exactly as they do – and have done for years now – one has the confidence that they will deliver on their promise.
And I’m not the only one. More people than ever are succeeding with Wealthy Affiliate. Most people who join don’t even promote Wealthy Affiliate at all. Instead, Wealthy Affiliate teaches you how to promote any number of products or services across the web in just about any niche. If you do want to promote Wealthy Affiliate, by all means, it’s a great affiliate program that can easily earn you a full-time living! Here’s the last paycheck I received from Wealthy Affiliate. The amount is actually higher than what is posted in the chart above due to some yearly subscriptions and a few other things that I got paid extra for.
Hello, I'm a Nigerian and it's quite disheartening and painful that those living in Nigeria have been completely knocked out from both the starter and premium membership of WEALTHY AFFILIATE due to frauding,scamming,spamming and the rest. Only Nigeria!!!- Out of the whole countries in the world!!. I'm here to say that we all are not Scammers etc but the bad eggs are going online tarnishing the image of this GREAT country. I just pray that the WEALTHY AFFILIATE team will find a better way of limiting scam relates issues by Nigerians and allowing us back into the system.
Yep, I agree with what Anusuya Choudhury said. Many people are looking for easy $$$$ and fall for the promise to make lots of money. But can you blame WA for that? They explicitly tell everywhere in the training that you have to work hard to achieve any success. The sky is a limit. And that limit is you. So, you don’t have to give a negative review just because someone did not hand you everything on the plate without hard work. You can’t just be so negative because your level of expertise is high and WA couldn’t give you what you were looking for. Support is amazing there. Not everyone is a tech like you. But they can start and learn from 0 on WA platform. Writers, cooks, motivational speakers – they all can surpass you and generate tones of money just following their passion. You are affiliate yourself. So, it doesn’t matter where you get your knowledge as long as it works for you.
Hi Craig, I’ve recently signed up for wealthy affiliate and have upgraded my account to premium (I have been a premium member for 5 days now). I am now beginning to think that Wealthy Affiliate really isn’t what it is set out to be. It is very shady of them and unethical to gradually persuade people into promoting their own platform and having control over their domains and websites.

Since joining Wealthy Affiliate, it’d been my goal to help new and existing members speed up the process for getting results. If you’re someone who’s wanting to try it out and see if affiliate marketing is right for you, go sign up. If you join through my site, I will personally follow you and provide answers if you get stuck. But that doesn’t mean I’ll do the work for you. I’m here to help facilitate success, but creating a successful business is on you. 😉
3. Nope, never. Although Wealthy Affiliate provides separate lessons to promote Wealthy Affiliate as well as other online work companies, but also the main focus of Wealthy Affiliate mainstream lessons are to make a website in your own subject of interest and make money from that and also from reputed companies like eBay, Amazon and Google Adsense.

Generally, direct marketing campaigns should target people who have expressed interest or are likely to be interested in what your company offers rather than mass marketing campaigns used to create general awareness. For example, a new ice cream shop may want to send coupons shaped like ice cream cones to local households with kids at the start of summer. More targeted and personalized campaigns usually generate better results.

Where consumers have indicated the wish not to receive direct marketing communications by signing on to a preference service, or in any other way, this should be respected. Marketers who are communicating with consumers internationally should, where possible ensure that they avail themselves of the appropriate preference service in the markets to which they are addressing their communications and respect consumers' wishes not to receive such communications (see also General Provisions, article 19, data protection and privacy.[50] Where a system exists, enabling consumers to indicate a wish not to receive unaddressed mail (e.g. mailbox stickers), this should be respected.
