What is the Wealthy Affiliate Review about? Can I really make money?

It’s the question on everyone’s mind who is looking to make money online, “What is the Wealthy Affiliate Review about?” I’m here to tell you exactly what it is about, and this will be from an insider’s perspective. I am a Premium member of the Wealthy Affiliate program, and my experience has been amazing.

My personal journey

I had been trying to find a way to make money online and quit my job. I had a very high-paying job with benefits, but I was extremely unhappy. Life is short, and I was tired of waking up with anxiety at the thought of going to work.

I tried program after program, and it seemed like I was fighting an uphill battle. Most of these “programs” taught me nothing! In fact, it seemed like the main thing these programs offered were just promises that if I upgraded to their next level, that’s where I would get the real secret sauce to make a lot of money online!

It wasn’t until I tried the Wealthy Affiliate program that I finally found a program that offered a true program 100% for free. The Wealthy Affiliate also offers a Premium Membership (which I am a Premium member), but you are not required to upgrade to start the business and really learn through their training.

You know what I got for my free Starter membership? Let me tell you…

Free Starter Membership

The Wealthy Affiliate starter membership gave me all the tools I needed to start my online business, and not only that, I got full training step-by-step with video tutorials and everything. It left nothing to chance, and I actually couldn’t believe I had finally found an actual program that was authentic!

I didn’t need a credit card or debit card to sign up. It really was 100% free! That was my first clue that I might have finally found a legitimate program! The Starter plan was not a trial. I could remain in the Starter Membership as long as I wanted to.

Starter gave me:

  • Two free websites
  • Website Backup
  • The full Beginning Training Courses
  • Your own personal affiliate blog
  • You can become an affiliate of Wealthy Affiliate
  • You get to earn while you learn

Wealthy Affiliate also offers their Premium program, and I upgraded to Premium within a few days, that’s how impressed I was. I wanted to make money online and build a business, so there was just no reason not to. The Premium plan offered so many features I wanted like:

Premium added:

  • 50 Websites
  • Website Security Package
  • Live Video Classes every week
  • The full library of training modules (Check it out here: FULL WEALTHY AFFILIATE LIBRARY)
  • Private access to the owners
  • 24/7/365 Support
  • Website Feedback & Analysis
  • Website Comments (comments on your posts are another key to your success)

The Premium plan is only $49 a month, and they give you a deal if you sign up in the first seven days of your Starter membership You get that first month for only $19! That’s a bargain, and it gives you plenty of time to try all the features and really make sure this business is for you!

Jaaxy Keyword Tool

I have been marketing online for many years, and I knew enough about search engine optimization (SEO) to realize keywords were critical to getting ranked! Does that sound like a foreign language to you? Well, let me explain.

Keywords are the words people search online to find information. Someone might search my keywords, “What is the Wealthy Affiliate Review About?” If they do, I am attempting to “rank” in the search engines so that my website pops up on page 1. Let’s face it, most people look at the results on page 1 only, and they rarely go over to other pages, which makes ranking on page 1 extremely important!

Here’s the thing – How do you know what keywords people are searching for? The last thing you want to do is spend a whole bunch of time on keywords that nobody is searching. Not productive. That’s where Jaaxy comes in to play.

Jaaxy is the keyword research tool that was designed by the Wealthy Affiliate owners. Wealthy Affiliate has been around for over 14 years! The owners are affiliate marketers who, just like me, were tired of scam programs out there, so they decided to create a platform of their own. They also created a perfect keyword research tool to help in ranking our sites!

Jaaxy not only shows you who is searching for keywords, but it also shows you which ones are low (or high) competition. Is that great or what? They teach you to go after the “low hanging fruit,” which are keywords that have high search volume yet low competition. With Jaaxy, finding them is super quick and easy.

Take a look at this article I wrote all about this tool. You’ll see exactly how it works:

Training Program

Everyone needs training when they start a business.  If you’ve never set up a website, the Wealthy Affiliate Starter plan walks you through the entire process step by step.  It’s awesome!  You’ll learn so much information, all for free.  Take a look:

Inside the platform the training program guides you. When you click on the training tab, it shows you exactly where you left off in your program!  Here’s a screen capture of my training progress:

The Premium program offers so much training that you wouldn’t be able to go through all of it in a lifetime, I’m serious.  The thing is, they add new training daily, and every week Premium members can jump onto the live training and ask questions in real time.  That’s an amazing benefit.  I put together a list of some of the training offered in the Premium membership, so go ahead and take a look at it here:



The big question – Can I make money?

The answer is YES! Absolutely! How much and how quickly depends on you! Wealthy Affiliate provides the proven formula, but how well you follow it and how much time you devote will dictate how much you earn.

Wealthy Affiliate is not a “get-rich-quick scheme” like so many other plans. These programs are outright lies! They promise you that they have some template you just copy and earn money immediately, but that is just not even possible. You cannot rank in the search engines with copied material. Your site will be penalized if you have duplicate material.

Wealthy Affiliate teaches you that it takes time to build your website, add content and rank your posts. This is an actual business, and it takes time to build. I stress to all my students that they need to be realistic about the time to build the business.

Here’s the thing, though. Once you follow the program and build your business, you have the potential to make a lot of money. There are marketers in the program bringing in upwards of $10,000 per month, and that’s residual income. Once you build your content and start to get the people coming to the site, the sales occur through the merchants, and you just get a commission.

You never deal with products or customers! You just get a “referral” fee, and that’s it!



The last thing I want to mention is the Wealthy Affiliate community. You will have access to all the other members once you upgrade to the Premium membership. That means if you have a question, you put it in the chat area and within seconds you will have several responses.

The community also provides comments on your blog posts and feedback on your website. You will have access to all the training provided by other members, as well as their blog posts.

Comments Welcome

The Starter Plan is free, so go ahead and get started. There’s just no reason to wait. You can set up your website, get involved in the training and see how you like it.

Once you join, you will get an email from me and you can always reach out to me inside the platform.

For now, go ahead and leave any comments or questions you have in the area below. If you would like to contact me personally, you can always email me at Babs@CoachingforInternetMarketers.com. I look forward to working with you!
