  1. John thank for the info I think im read to enroll with all the helpful info in your review…

  2. Thank you, John, for this comprehensive overview about Wealthy Affiliates. I am a Member myself and can highly recommend joining this awesome online community. The support and training one can receive are truly unique and helpful in building a successful online business. I like how you listed each course WA teaches to anyone who is interested in creating a sound basis for affiliate marketing.
    Cheers Anke

  3. Hi John, So content creation is super important then? What happens if I do start up a site and after following through with all the lessons, I still don’t get the traffic I need? Would one be attending th enormal lessons and the Bootcamp at the same time? or first the lessons and then followed by the Bootcamp?

    • Hi Zinette,

      Yes, content creation is super important and probably the biggest task you will be doing with your online business.

      Unfortunately, a lot of people do get put off by this, don’t put in the effort and don’t get the results that they want.

      But in reality, it isn’t really that hard.

      The main thing to consider is “why” you want to build an online business and make money online.

      Personally, I want to create BOTH time and financial freedom for myself and my family by following my passions, AND helping other people to do the same!

      Once you have a big enough reason “why” then you will put in the work required to succeed.

      The bigger the “why” the easier the “how”!

      As for getting traffic, IF you follow the training and do the work, THEN you will see results! 🙂

      As for your last question, it depends on which direction you take with your niche (or topic you build your business around)

      You may be directed to the bootcamp, complete that training, then you can go back to the other course.

      I would definitely only do one at a time or you may get confused 😉

      Thanks for your feedback and questions, if I can help further or clarify anything, please let me know 🙂

  4. Hi John,
    I checked out the links that you provided – do I need to sign up to be able to view everything in full? (Like the certification course tutorials).
    I didn’t think that an online business would involve so many steps and so much knowledge – like website building is common sense but keyword search and the like? Interesting.
    So is it the top program that you recommend?
    I found this information timely and useful – will explore it further.
    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    • Hi Zarina, thanks for your comment 🙂

      Yes you do need to sign up to view everything, all you need to do is to enter a username and a valid email address.

      Yes, this is definitely my top program that I recommend for both beginners and experienced marketers.

      Obviously it is of most benefit for newbies to learn the right way from the ground up, but experienced internet marketers will definitely learn a thing or two, “unlearn” some bad habits and benefit from the community networking with some very seasoned and successful affiliate marketers and online business owners.

      I have personally been a member of WA since 2013 and have no hesitation in promoting their services… you will not go wrong applying their trainings!

      Thanks again 🙂

  5. Love your website John. It is very professional and easy to read. Your review of Wealthy Affiliate is excellent and one of the best I have read. It sounds like a really great place to learn and to help build your own online business.I would have thought you would pay a lot more for all the benefits Wealthy Affiliate gives you. Isn’t there and annual membership fee that is even more reasonable than the monthly one?

    • I am glad you asked about the yearly discount Margaret, I had forgotten about that 😉

      I believe it is around $300 per year, which works out at around $25 per month… a significant discount and something you way want to consider down the track!

      But as you say, even for the regular monthly fee, it is amazing value.

      One thing that the owner Kyle likes to do is make it affordable and not have hidden upsells or costs!

      What you see is what you get!

      Thanks for your comment and feedback 🙂

  6. the way you explains every step of the way should help a lot of people. I’m going through the certification course myself and getting insides from sites like yours help a lot … thanks

    More people will benefit from what WA has to offer!!

    and the ‘ fail to success’ mentality really show people what they can achieve.


  7. Hi John,

    Been looking into Wealthy Affiliate for sometime now and looks like a very legit way to approach affiliate marketing. I’ve been interested in niche sites and how to create them and thought about doing a trial and error kind of approach but think this will save me the time and effort of going down that road.

    The keyword tool sounds interesting… is it integrated into WA or is there a separate keyword tool?


    • Hi Mason,

      Yes, WA has a keyword research tool as part of it’s membership!

      If you are considering joining WA, I encourage you to sign up for the free starter membership.

      You won’t be disappointed 🙂
