Still Wondering is Wealthy Affiliate Worth It?
You’re not required or pressured into becoming a premium member. WA understands not everyone is going to have, the less than $2 per day for a premium membership. So just pick whatever option works for you. Say that again! Less than $2 a day??
AND…Free To Start…Yup. You have that right. So, what do you think? Is wealthy affiliate worth it?
As you probably know most work at home opportunities are not free to start. Some are yes, but they still ask for your CC. upfront. Ever noticed that? The same is true when you order free samples. WA understands how frustrating this can be and not only provides you a free starter option, You don’t have to provide a credit card!!
What happens if we have questions, especially if you’re brand new to learning a new way to make money. The great thing about wealthy affiliate is that there are thousands of members from all over the world that you can chat with in real time if you run into an issue. You are never having to face it alone. You might be in business for yourself but never by yourself. Not when you are at the Wealthy Affiliate University. What do you think now? Is wealthy affiliate worth it?
Staying the Course of Time
I’m sure you have heard of those work at home opportunities that come and go. Yes, there are a lot and so when you see a company like Wealthy Affiliate that has stood the test of time and still reigns supreme, you have to know they are doing something right. Wealthy Affiliate has been around for over a decade. Not many work-at-home companies can say that. You can feel comfortable knowing that they won’t just do the disappearing act. I am not sure what the exact #’s are today for new start-ups but the majority do not last.
What could be something that is difficult, or at least I have found it this way is losing the ‘attitude’ about that one too many negative road trips we have taken on the internet highway. Not everyone is Real Bad! Some are just plain ‘Badder’. 🙂 I do suggest, however, that you do your homework and really look closely at the reviews you are reading. Especially the ones that like to draw you in with negative headlines or it sounds too good to be true. Yes, that rule still applies.
You Need to know the Truth
Are there Any Complaints that address the question is wealthy affiliate worth it?
Like any company that has been around for years, there are those people who have ruffled feathers that are just not happy for whatever reason. Some are valid concerns but most of what I saw were because they had their fingers smacked for breaking the rules and were given a warning. When you weigh the complaints vs the literally thousands of members, the number of complaints I saw were way less than an even a fraction of a fraction!
You Don’t Need WA? Really?
Here are a few things I saw a handful of people getting their panties in a knot about. I would like to clarify this a bit better for you and I promise it is a short list.
1. You can find what is taught at WA on your own for free. OH! I CAN?
Well if that is the case may I suggest you better be really patient and have the ability to filter out all the nonsense and chatter you are going to come across. The biggest advantage I found was all the tools you need for success are all in one place.
If you have ever tried any other programs, jumping from site to site trying to learn, you know this is a huge plus as well as a time saver. You also have the support of other members who want to help you, and no, they do not have any underlying reasons to do this. The rules are strict here for a reason. No pushing your own products on members at all. Zero, Zilch!
2. Access to Members for Help is cut off.
I guess I better start talking fast right about now! It goes like this.
For the first 7 days, Free members are given access to certain premium features such as the ability to communicate with other members in our live chat area, blogs, comments, etc. You can have full access to the back office. It’s a way for you to get a feel of the community. The whole thing not just what they think you should see.
When those 7 days are up you can still have access to the training and your free websites, but as a free member, you do lose the features that are reserved for premium members. That’s done by design because it’s a premium feature. I will explain the premium in just a bit. But if you think about it, we all have to put food on the table, right? You are here because you want to earn an income. You cannot earn if it is free. Any business venture requires some capital.
There have been other times where a members communication access has been cut off because WA has a zero tolerance for certain behavior. (Like I mentioned above.) This can ruffle a few feathers. You break the rules, you pay the consequences. Plain and simple, don’t do it.
I actually had a comment on my website from an Ex-communicated member regarding this and another who had been flagged. They take this seriously and I for one really appreciate knowing I will not be badgered to join another members program or feel obligated to look.
You’re also not allowed to spam, curse at other members, bully or engage in any negative behavior. This community is about helping each other not tearing folks down. No one wants to feel stupid for asking a question or less than because they didn’t know something.
If someone is being disruptive or disrespectful they’re put on a proverbial ‘time out’. ( You remember those, right?) And In some very rare cases, they are actually shown the door! I have the utmost respect for these rules. I actually really appreciate that I can ask questions and get help OR if I should happen to give the wrong answer, someone else jumps in and helps out without making me feel like a dope.
Premium Billing Issues? Are there any?
I’m not sure this even happens. When you decide to become a premium member you are either charged monthly or yearly. WA is so accommodating. You control whether you even want to do the upgrade ( one time only too) and you can cancel at any time. It is hard to find fault with a company that gives you those options with free sites. Please note the graph below to see what is available…
Is wealthy affiliate a Lie?
In terms of the rip-offs or negative reports, I have only seen a few complainants. Mostly from people who just didn’t quite understand the how of the training and the length of time it can take to put it all together. We all learn at different speeds. But, I am also sure some of it is in part due to the false claims we have seen for years about making tens of thousands of dollars online in just a few weeks. I think the important thing to keep in mind in any program is the ratio of complaints to the number of members.
At the end of the day, the greatest thing about WA for me is that you can become a member totally risk-free and experience the community and back-office for yourself. From there you can make your own choices. Ultimately, the best thing you can do is to check it out first hand, with your own eyes.
Who Is Wealthy Affiliate For?
Pretty much anyone and everyone who is looking to earn extra income from home. We have members as old as 83, yes you are reading this right, and as young as 19. Anyone who seriously wants to work from home and realizes there is a learning curve to this and it does not happen by pushing some big red EASY Button.
My heart reaches out to those people who have been affected by health issues, or disability issues that require working from home. Know that if this is you and If you have a computer, you can learn! I have met so many wonderful people all willing to help and encourage each other. My one friend Brett has MS but does that stop him from learning? Nope. He is going full steam ahead as are many others.
This is where my heart sings out loud because I know I can and I am sharing something that can make a difficult life better! Is wealthy affiliate worth it? You bet it is!
For others, due to circumstances in their lives were not able to save enough for retirement or are living on a meager disability income. Life throws ‘life’ at us and we don’t know if we have 10, 20 or even 30 years anymore. Do you have enough saved? What if you are retiring soon and live another 30+ years? It is possible with the new age rules.

We also have members making upwards of $4,000.00 a month. Look at these testimonies. It is my #1 for a reason.

If you can read, watch videos and can ask questions, be patient with yourself and stay focused you can do this too. So, let me be the first to welcome you to the first day of your awesome self!
Affiliate Marketing is becoming very mainstream today. Google, Amazon and so many other well-known companies have affiliate programs for us to join. Do you think they would do something if it was not legitimate? How many business opportunities have you run into that allow you to work with major players like this and no purchase of product required! Actually, to become an affiliate of any company there is NEVER A FEE!!
That is all there is to it. I hope you found this to be somewhat helpful in your decision making. I cannot nor will I promise you that you will make a ton of money or that you can do this in a few weeks. No, that is not going to happen. If this was easy and could be done with a click of a button, don’t you think everyone would be doing this and everyone would be rich and famous?
You only need to be sure that this is a good fit for you and that you want to have your own business. Wealthy Affiliate University is the platform that will help you if this is your goal. I see a lot of new members coming in who ask when do we make money not realizing this is a learning platform designed to help you build success with your own business. WA just happens to have one of the best and highest paying affiliates offers online today. Tuck that in the back of your brain for now.
We all have dreams and goals and we all deserve to see those be fulfilled. If there is one thing I can stress to you right now, it is that Rome was not built in a day and neither will your online business. It is a process so I suggest you keep your day job for now and look forward to the day you get to leave it behind.
If you want a shot at something greater than what you have today, more freedom, family time or travel time, then I can guarantee that WA will teach you the skills to help you. It might be a journey, but then isn’t anything worthwhile?
Trust is a huge issue on the Internet. If I had not run away from those others promising the stars the moon and tons of cash for joining there make money program, I would not be here directing you to what I believe is the best option online today. There are no shortcuts and it can and will be an expensive lesson if you decide not to trust today.

OR, join the awesome and more “awesomer” club and click on the only time there is a one-click wonder online social icons. That would be huge and appreciated.
