I am guessing you have the same questions and more. So today I want to try to explain how Wealthy Affiliate Can Power Your Online Success. Also why I consider them the Holy Grail of online business training platforms.

First, to understand what you need to know to make a business work online effectively there are a few things you need

You need a general idea of what you want your business to be, what I mean is, what form of online business are you interested in. Retail website, DropShipping or Something like Affiliate Marketing. There are other choices but for now, let us keep it at this list. There are Pro’s and Cons to each option here but all of them can work if done correctly.

If you have chosen any of the website routes you will need a hosting plan to get you online and then you will want some sort of web builder right? Yes unless you are a coding fanatic. Stay with me and I will cover this

You will also need training so you know what to do with that shiny new website you have. A Keyword and SEO tool is a must as well, which really helps with research for your content. Well, there is all the above and more available at Wealthy Affiliate.

So How does Wealthy Affiliate Help you?

First, let us talk about what Wealthy Affiliate Is, an online business platform called Wealthy Affiliate University, which specializes in helping an individual like your self set up and run affordable and successful online businesses. The right way

They specialize in Affiliate Marketing but you can certainly use the skills you acquire to run a retail website or drop shipping business, the information on how these and other income options work is available in the member training area, just type in what you’re looking for and someone will have training about it normally. See below for member training example

I have listed below many of the ways you can thrive online by using this platform. It is an extensive list and the post is a bit long but honestly, I have left many great things out and still have plenty to show you.

First here is a statement from Wealthy Affiliate regarding their affiliate marketing platform

Now that we have covered the membership options we turn now to the Training options available to you.

There are 2 paths to follow for initial structured training and thousands of member training options available for members for additional helpful information.

Your starting point is the Online Entrepreneur Certification course as shown below there are 5 classes each with multiple lessons. You track your progress and can come back and pick up where you left off.

Free Starter members get access to The Level 1(Getting Started)Class, While Premium members get the entire course set.

This course covers how to get started online and shows you the steps to build a thriving online business. You still have to do the work and it won’t be easy, but this gets you going and also shows you how being a member can help you succeed by providing everything you need for one cost. You learn how to find affiliate programs and also how to properly add content to your site in a way that helps you rank in searches, which leads to traffic and then revenue.

The Affiliate Bootcamp is the next option for training. You learn how to promote Wealthy Affiliate and also teach your readers what to know about starting and running an online business. You share what you learn and also apply it to your own business and before you know it you are finished with the training.

You may notice below that you are not taught Pay Per Click Marketing techniques until the end of the training. That is on purpose. The prior training teaches you how to gain “organic” traffic by ranking well in searches and many other free traffic methods like social media, email marketing just to name a couple.

This program teaches you multiple ways to earn income online and scale that up to maximum success. Wealthy Affiliate like thousands of other companies online has an affiliate program, so part of your Boot camp training will be learning how to use the affiliate options to gain multiple sources of income.

Useful Tools

This article would not be complete without listing the tools available to members.

Jaaxy Keyword Tool

Jaaxy Keyword tool

What a great keyword tool. I use it every day. Jaaxy is a suite of tools by itself that give you a variety of information sources to help you with your SEO and Keyword research and track your rankings

Keyword research is very valuable for your business and to have a tool that gives you keywords and so much more is amazing. The fact that it is part of the platform here is even better.

You get a free jaaxy account as a free starter member and premium members get Jaaxy lite for free as part of the premium membership package

Jaaxy also has an affiliate program, so you can make a nice income by promoting jaaxy. I would recommend trying it for free and seeing for yourself first before trying to promote it. Remember, you get the free Jaaxy account when you sign up for Wealthy Affiliate in any of the membership options

I could go on for days about how awesome Jaaxy is and yes I am an affiliate but, to be honest, I use Jaaxy every day for my own business, so I have no problem promoting it since I have seen the power firsthand of how great this tool is.

For more information, see my Jaaxy Review here

Site Content

Site Content is a proprietary tool used by members to organize and write your website content if you choose to use it, It contains word count tracking, spelling, and grammar checks, goal settings, Templates, and Buckets to store your articles that you are working on, a list of current and future articles

You are able to have a nice visual way to stay organized with your content. For Premium members there are also over 1 Million Free to use images no license issues.

Site Comments

This is a great feature that allows members to interact with other member websites and provide good quality comments. For new websites, this is a great way to improve your rankings since the search engines like to see activity on your site.

Wealthy Affiliate Site Comments

This is a pay it forward process, you comment on 2 sites and you receive 1 credit to use towards asking for others to comment on your site. This way everybody wins by being active and also by helping each other out.

Site Feedback

This provides you with an option very similar to the comments above, except it is for feedback from other members. It is based on the same pay it forward credit system as the comments.

You get real and honest feedback from others which is extremely valuable information to determine if what you are doing is working. Being able to have someone critique your websites is pure gold. You can correct issues or enhance your successes

Below is an example of feedback that I received about this website, using this tool.

Site Speed

One of the great proprietary tools of the platform here is the Site Speed option it is one of the features of the Site plus feature within Wealthy Affiliate.

Turning this on helps your website load fast and helps provide a good user experience by not having slow loading content.

This is huge for rankings since the search engines want to provide a good experience as well for the users, so you get rewarded with higher rankings for a faster site.

Wealthy Affiliate Site SpeedThere are many other useful tools and or information available within the community, and Members frequently post about other free tools they have found and how they can help you out.

I am going to stop here for the tools, otherwise this post will never end.



The community is the backbone of Wealthy Affiliate. There are at the time of this writing over 2 Million members, which makes this the largest online marketing community in the world. Do you think that many members would still be here if this program was not as advertised? No way.

wealthy affiliate community

The community is full of people all at various stages of their business, from just starting out to 12 Year vets with tons of experience to share. It is set up much like a social media site, you have a profile and followers and people you follow, you can direct message other members (premium only) and ask the community a question and many other perks.

There is a 24/7 online chat board running that always has someone in there to assist if you get stuck. The Co-Founders Kyle and Carson frequently participate in Chat as well and that provides a great one on one opportunity to ask a question.


I have covered several options that are available to you as a member of the community, I have left out many other nice features. The best way to find out how great a deal this is, would be to try the Free Starter Membership since it costs you nothing and still gives you access to the system to check it out.

If you compare what you get for the Premium membership option to other programs, you will have a hard time finding a better value for your money and once you make some money monthly from your business you can cover your membership expenses pretty easily.

If you are truly serious about getting a business going online then you owe it to yourself to at least check out Wealthy Affiliate and find out why 1.5 Million members are happy customers

    I totally agree that WA has the training and tools for anyone who wants to have a successful online business. Providing the training and tools are only one part of the equation, the other part of the equation that will clearly define success from failure is YOU. you have to exert a lot of efforts and sacrifices to be successful online, and that complete the equation of WA.


    • Todd says:


      The chance for success is not just about the training but like you said it is YOU who have to put the work in and stay committed to the process. Many folks get started in this industry looking for lightning in a bottle and learn quickly that unless you work at it you most likely will not succeed. Wealthy Affiliate provides a platform to give you the chance at a great online income source, but you have to take advantage of it to make it work.

    Wealthy Affiliate is one of the best (if not the best) affiliate marketing training platforms. I am also a member for more than 2 years now and i know their training works. It’s not easy to find a similar programs that can offer so much for hust $49 per month.

    What i especially like is the live webinars and that they always add more training to keep the course up to date. There are also plenty of successful entrepreneurs inside WA and you can a lot from them. So it’s not just the WA training that you have access too. 

    • Todd says:


      Very true about finding other platforms and what they offer in relation to what you get here. Yes there are others and they are legit programs that provide great information and opportunities, however I have seen other choices and can truly say this program is un matched anywhere. The webinars are amazing and the fact that we have one each week is fabulous. The old ones are archived and available to be watched any time. That’s Cool. Just to interact directly with an industry expert is pure Gold.

      Thanks for the comment

  3. Richard says:

    Wow, that’s really quite something that you can host up to 50 websites for the same price, and the training on offer looks to be very thorough and helpful. I’ts great that you can start free but I have a question, how far do you think you can get just using the free program? Or do you think that to really be successful using this platform it is necessary to upgrade? Thanks for the info!

    • Todd says:


      The 50 websites is a nice perk, most people wont be able to run that many sites but it is great for domain flipping or setting up sites for clients as well as the ability to open another site with just a few clicks and you are up and running on the same hosting platform. To answer your question, Yes someone can succeed as a free starter and many have. But once you get past the first 7 days of premium you have when you join, the access to information is still there but is a bit limited so to make it work, you need to apply what is taught in the core training and keep banging out quality useful content for your audience. Premium however opens up an entirely new option by giving you full access to everything on the site which is truly amazing in the amount available at your finger tips, and you have a much greater chance at success.

    As a member of Wealthy Affiliate, I can say your review is complete 100% accurate. In reference to your options of joining, I (like many) started as a free starter, but after a few weeks I went to the premium option and never looked back. You reference Jaaxy as a two for one option, and this is so true. The best SEO keyword tool combined with the best website development platform is a no brainer! I have done the Online Entrepreneur Certification and in 3 months have began making money and generating a lot of traffic. I have not tried the Affiliate Bootcamp you mentioned, but have only heard positive things. This post is making me want to go and create another site!

    • Todd says:

      I too started as a Free member then went premium within the first week. I saw fantastic value and also learned quite a bit in a very short time. I have previous experience with websites but I was missing some key skills that I was able to learn here. Yes the fact that we get an industry leading Keyword Suite of tools along with our hosting and an unlimited amount of training options makes this a can’t pass up option. The Bootcamp is great, but if your site is making a profit, stick with it for a while and take it to the next level and hit that sweet spot that gives you the financial freedom you are looking for.

    Hey Todd, your post was a great read. I love how descriptive you were talking about WA which is something I never tire of hearing or reading about; WA is the way to make a future in affiliate marketing and financial freedom. 

    Also, I liked how you mentioned the Affiliate Bootcamp which is a great thing too because I came in looking to start bootcamp because I was already a little versed in affiliate marketing but I went through the OEC because there was much I needed to learn. Excellent post!

    • Todd says:


      This platform is suitable for all skill levels from newbies to veterans like yourself. Both training paths provide great opportunities for income. I chose the Bootcamp route due to stability factor as an income source for being an Affiliate. I have other sites but this is my main focus. Glad you enjoyed the post

    This is a great review of Wealthy Affiliate and I agree with you.

    It’s an excellent platform to learn your affiliate marketing skills. The training is suitable for all levels. 

    If you are a total beginner, you can take advantage of the Online Certification course and take it step by step to set up your website and your online business.

    As you advance in your training, you can then follow many, many lessons, webinars, blogs, advice from the WA teachers and from the community.

    The info on WA is up to date, you learn directly from people who are in the business and successful at it. If you ask me, just being able to ask advice from these, world’s most successful affiliate marketers is worth the membership money.

    Talking of the membership fee – it will cost you per day, less than a price of your daily latte! Amazing value!

    • Todd says:


      Yes, the fact that any skill level can flourish on this platform is great. To have the ability to direct message one of the seasoned vets and have them critique our site or an article is un heard of anywhere else. Like you said the info is up to date, they just keep releasing new and updated features or training to help members succeed. This is a must for someone looking to make a living online

    Such an awesome review Todd. I can confirm that Wealthy Affiliate is truly legitimate platform that anyone who want to earn from home should try. I am one year in and I am more then satisfied. Hosting speed is simply incredible and that is just one of many other features that this platform have. I hope that a lot people will even give it a try and see for yourself.

    • Todd says:


      Very happy to hear you like your experience so far with Wealthy Affiliate. I certainly do, the incredible amount of information available just never quits. The hosting is high class and fast, the proprietary SiteSpeed is amazing how our sites perform so well in speed tests without needed plugins and other add on choices. I agree that folks looking to get started need to check this out. Check back with me and fill me in on your progress as your business grows, your success can help others see value in this.

    I’ve been a wealthy affiliate member for 2 years now and its awesome. You did a great job covering everything that they offer.

    In my opinion though the community really is the best. Being around like minded people who have already succeeded in what you’re trying to do can give you a huge confidence boost, not to mention you can always ask them for advice.

    • Todd says:


      The community is like you said, the best, members frequently post their own training on a variety of topics. Many new members do not realize that besides the core training, member training is also available, just type it in to search and go for it.  The tech support is 24/7.  I like you have been a member for 2 years and have nothing but good things to say about Wealthy Affiliate. In my opinion, based on all they have to offer for 1 price, they are hands down the best online business training platform online today

    Was looking for ways to boost my online business when I come across your site. I’ve been struggling with traffic for the past one year and I think it has got a lot to do with my SEO.

    This program that you are suggesting seems to have a lot going on. So if I get this correctly, it’s a training and web hosting site, right? Interesting I’ve not heard of SiteRubix hosting before.

    The number of domains that they provide is impressive. Do you have any idea if their website speed is good?

    • Todd says:


      Yes it is training, websites and web hosting and also keyword tool all in one package including a content creation option and weekly webinars. As far as site speed goes they have a proprietary tool called ironically “site speed” which works in tandem with google page speed insights and it honestly makes our web pages very fast. Normally getting speeds in the 70’s is good and about average. I consistently get speeds in the 90’s just by being hosted here and using the methods suggested to not clog up my posts with bulky images or stuff that can slow them down. Siterubix is part of wealthy affiliate, it is their platform for creating free websites with the free hosting. The 50 websites is nice yes but honestly who will use them all? to much time management involved. could be however very useful for customer sites or domain flipping and many more options

  10. Furkan says:

    I think it is really nice that this platform offers hosting for 50 websites. However I wonder about something. How is the spam protection of this platform? Since I have lots of spams with my current provider and I honestly hate it. I just lose time. How is the overall protection?

    • Todd says:


      Wealthy Affiliate has a very robust security program in the hosting platform, I get very little spam. Some Yes but as a norm, most Spam is blocked from entering your site. You can also contact support if you do get some and have that IP address blocked so you do not receive it anymore. I have been running on this platform for over a year and have maybe received 5 Spam hits the entire time. The SSL security and fast hosting is not mentioned much in Promotions but they have it figured out and share that coverage with members. yes the 50 websites is a big deal, you can just make money buying and selling domains if you choose, or setting up websites for customers, many options in addition to running them yourself. Find me a place that allows 50 websites for the same cost as 1 website. It is a great deal.

    Its good to see a well rounded training such as what is being offered at Wealthy Affiliate.

    They are also one of the few that have all the tools needed not just the training.

    How long have you been a member and what do you consider to be the best part of the membership?

    • Todd says:


      Yes i was surprised when I stumbled upon Wealthy Affiliate in late 2016 and tried the free membership and was waiting for the Up-sells and hidden fee’s to start. Everything was up front and as advertised, the Premium membership is $49 a Month and you truly get everything you need to succeed, besides offering the premium membership at a reduced price within the first 7 days there is nothing Up-sell wise and no tricks, this is the legit deal like advertised. Once I saw the value in what was offered I had no issue joining premium, the costs pay for themselves when my site makes money so it is no issue.  The best part of the membership? Constant updates. There is always some new module or tool or training being added to stay current with today’s online trends. I have not found a more well rounded program for the cost. This is a great investment if you are doing it as a business and not just a hobby

    I’m also a member of WA and I’ve learned so much in just a month. I’m excited for the next phase of my online business journey. What is your favorite thing about Wealthy Affiliate?

    I personally love how helpful and encouraging the community is and my second favorite thing is the Jaaxy keyword tool.

    • Todd says:


      It is refreshing to have someone comment that has just started with Wealthy Affiliate. You are seeing the advantages of how the training works for you and all the great tools available to use. My favorite thing about the platform is the current and updated training that is relevant in todays market. They have published and updated many of the core classes just in the last year or sooner. To be a leader in the industry you need to be doing it right and Wealthy Affiliate has nailed it. Yes Jaaxy is amazing, the Siterank feature helps me out and I am addicted to searching for keywords. As you said the community is amazing, there are so many helpful people with a wide range of experience to help you and encourage you, that is pure Gold in my opinion. I am very happy you are having success and enjoying the process. Come back again and give an update on how you’re doing, I would love to see your progress.

    I don’t mean to sound basis but when it comes to wealthy affiliate I don’t think there is any other online training that can be compared to this because when you look at how you can start for free no money down the tools, the training, and the community that backs you, you are a part of a community that will help you to meet your golds. I would encourage anyone to become a part of the Wealthy Affiliate community.

      Nice validation of our message. It is not biased if it is the truth, folks would not be doing so well and succeeding regularly if this was a scam.
