Finding a successful affiliate marketing training provider can be a long process. I researched and tried out a number of Online Marketing and Affiliate Marketing products and services before I found Wealthy Affiliate. Some were OK and others were pretty poor but none of them gave me the step by step training from beginner to advanced level in the same way.

I cover whats included on the platform below, but just to mention breifly upfront, one of the main ‘value adds’ with Wealth Affiliate is that the training is combined with hosting, and a dedicated community, in one platform. Its all you need to start making money from affiliate marketing.

Some solutions providers out there just give you the training and then you have to make a extra effort to get other tools and products on top, so you end up with lots of logins. Spinning too many plates all at once. Not so with WA.

When I started researching Wealthy Affiliate I noticed that the negative reviews were pretty uncommon. This is usually a green light that something good is happening.

In order to save you time I have summarised the key points below. The best way to find the latest detail is to click through to Wealthy Affiliate as they may change the deal from time to time. If you do this you can see the full rundown of what they can do for you.

Wealthy Affiliate Overview & Verdict

(opens in new tab): 

Pros (all included in the standard price):-

  • High quality, easy to follow, step by step training.
  • Regular Live Classes (and replays if you miss them) on top of the standard training.
  • Mentoring and Community Support.
  • Website Builder and Content Creation Tools.
  • Community-based Comments platform to drive traffic to your content.
  • High-Quality Site Support when you need it. Problems are fixed almost instantly from my experience. It’s pretty good to be honest.
  • Affiliate Bootcamp and a rewarding Affiliate Program.
  • WordPress Hosting! (25 websites can be hosted which is more than enough, and more than any other online marketing platform).
  • Keyword Research and Content Research Tools.


  • There could be some focus on life purpose / self-development initially, which can help with motivation and niche selection. (However, this can also be a turn off for some people so this depends on your preference for the self-help / motivational side of building a business.)
  • Some people say there is too much training there. Analysis paralysis is a problem. All of the additional training can be ignored when starting out though. In fact, it would be preferable to ignore all of the additional training when starting and just focus on the step by step basic training which will get you up and running. The rest of the training is sort of ‘nice to have’ initially but will eventually help you gain more traffic once you have completed the initial training.

PriceFree starter account, No credit card needed

Verdict: This is arguably, the best beginner to advanced intermediate Online marketing / Affiliate marketing product around and comes at a very affordable price in comparison.

The training is broken down in manageable bite size pieces to guide you from complete beginner to successful online blog/site with the potential to earn commissions.

Thanks for this review. Being a WA member myself I would recommend it with a slight hesitation. That’s because the training is good, but make sure you’re prepared to make your online business your life outside of work. If you don’t, it’s a waste of time.

Thanks for this review. Being a WA member, for me the biggest plus is the hosting and site support. The training is good, but as you say there is a lot so its easy to feel overwhelmed.
That said if you are serious, you’ll only take this in your stride. There is no point joining WA if you’re not looking to earn an income online. Go in with both feet and success will follow.
