Wealthy Affiliate 2017 Review – A Winner or Not?

     Creating Successful Internet Marketers – A Review of Wealthy Affiliate 2017

    Let me introduce myself. My name is Danny but my friends call me Danae’. I am an avid internet learner and surfer. I have been active on the internet for 22 years. In that time, I have participated in more marketing schemes than I can count. I have created so many business cards with ‘distributor ID’ numbers and replicated website URLs, I gave up tracking them. Internet marketing programs promising to make you rich, change your life, allow you to quit your regular job and promising mansions and that Beautiful sleek sport car you have only ever dreamt about if you join their organization and become a part of the wonderful world of internet marketing are out there by the thousands.

    Today, I make no promises of success – or failure. Over the past nearly three decades, I have learned many things about the internet, marketing, and promises of riches and ‘living the dream’. If you are looking for a magic program that is going to allow you to simply sign up, promote a self-replicating website and become rich, you might as well stop right now – I don’t want to waste your time. This program is not for you. It is not for you because there are no programs anywhere that are going to give that which you do not work for.

    I am talking about a program called Wealthy Affiliate. As much as I want you to join and become successful, I want you to know what you are getting and how that compares to what is out there.

    It is easy to get tangled up in any of the thousands of offerings available on the web. So, to help you make a more informed decision about where you are going to spend that hard – earned – cash… I offer this review of what I consider to be the best program on the internet! I am not just saying that and soon you will understand why I am so incredibly dedicated to continueing my success with Wealthy Affiliate!

    Wealthy Affiliate owned by Kyle and Carson

    This is a 12 year-old company run by a couple of guys with 25 employees. Their internet presence has come a long way since the start up of Wealthy Affiliate. Kyle and Carson are genuinely dedicated to creating every opportunity possible for anyone to achieve success through marketing on the internet. One amazing aspect of Wealthy Affiliate is it is not restricted to any one marketing niche. There are several series of training and support within a like-minded community that is available 24/7/365 dedicated to your success.


    I have never seen anything like it before. So many times in the past, I have thought, “this is the one” only to find the training was missing one key element – how to be successful. While going through training with Wealthy Affiliate, I posted this comment in one of the blog sites for members, “I am moving right along in the training. Extremely intense. So much information to digest and so much work to do”!

    I can speak only for myself when I say if the training available to anyone within Wealthy Affiliate does not pave the way to success, it is not because of the tools. The key to succeed, not only with Wealthy Affiliate – throughout life in anything one aspires to achieve – is not quitting. Nothing is for free. True success is achieved through diligence, dedication and yes – hard work.
    No where on the internet – for the cost of membership have I found this level of training and training tools available through one program. Combined with community support, video’s, and blogs the amount of success that can be achieved is unprecedented. That is my experience with Wealthy Affiliate.

    Wealthy Affiliate offers a certification course, an affiliate boot camp course, live video classes and more. The information and guidance is broken down so the internet newbie can clearly understand what to do and how to do it. Every aspect of creating an internet presence and being successful is covered in detail throughout the training. The tools available are geared for success on all levels.


    It is not my intention to compare Wealthy Affiliate with other programs. I believe all programs have something to offer. From my years of marketing, both online and off, I have not experienced the level of support that is available through Wealthy Affiliate. While progressing through training, I had several questions. I am somewhat of a night owl so my questions did not always get asked between 9 and 5. I received a detailed response to inquiries and not just from a support team, from one of the owners. With a strong support system set up within Wealthy Affiliate, including live chat, site support, questions and answers, I am able to focus on the purpose I am here – to build an internet presence and be successful. My money is precious to me. I work hard for it as I am sure everyone does. So where I spend it matters. I need results. With Wealthy Affiliate, I know I am learning and moving forward toward my dreams.

     Website Builder

    Wealthy Affiliate has such a vast amount of tools to help create an internet presence that stands up to the best sites on the world wide web. At first, I felt a bit overwhelmed as I am not a ‘techy’ kind of person. I am more on the business and promoting side. My first impression was “Man, I have no clue what to do now!” In that first moment – I seriously considered that this might not be for me. I posted a question and got an explanation that gave me the boost of confidence I needed to begin learning and creating my first Website.
    WordPress is what Wealthy Affiliate uses to create that on-line presence. This is a program that is used all over the internet. It has a huge internet presence and is used by some of the biggest names on the internet. I understand why. Combine Wealthy Affiliate with the training offered and the WordPress website builder and you have a match nothing short of amazing.

    The information is broken down into baby steps. What overall seems so impossible and daunting, is actually incredibly informative and effective. I only wish I would have known about Wealthy Affiliate 12 years ago when it hit the internet. I have achieved and continue to gain abilities that I once literally only dreamed I would be able to accomplish. This is a must experience to fully understand how incredible a tool this truly is.

     WordPress Hosting

    If you were to search the internet for a website hosting program, you would be surprised to find that WordPress hosts approximately 28% of the internet. That is a huge chunk of the internet when you consider how many programs are out there. For one company to host almost a third of the internet is an incredible affirmation as to the capabilities it provides.

    • 24/7 Managed monitoring
    • 24/7 automated monitoring
    • 24/7/365 site support with an average 5-minute response time
    • Virus and Malware protection
    • Powerful servers – Powerful sites

    WordPress hosting covers such a vast amount of information, it could dominate the Wealthy Affiliate review. Millions of marketers, blogs, news sites and more rely on the capabilities of WordPress to maintain a safe and successful internet presence. To understand and know the depth of this tool can only be achieved through experiencing it for yourself.


    Among many of the impressive aspects of Wealthy Affiliate is the cost of the program. There are three ways to participate. A free membership which offers a large amount of tools to achieve your goals. Granted, it might take a bit longer to achieve a high level of success, however, a high level of success is absolutely attainable with a free membership. The amount of tools available in a free membership are quite impressive. There is a paid membership which gives you a ‘Premium’ status allowing you access to such a powerful tool box success is only limited by your dedication to succeed. Premium membership can be paid on a monthly or an annual basis. The annual basis is nearly a 50% discount of the monthly membership fee.

    The cost to become Premium and maintain that status by comparison to any other membership on the internet that I have found is mind boggling. While it would cost hundreds of dollars per month to maintain the level of support you receive in Wealthy Affiliate, the membership does not even come close to a hundred dollars for the monthly fee. The annual fee is even less than that.
    The tools, instruction and support that is available to every member of Wealthy Affiliate, could certainly cost upwards of $1,000’s of dollars per month. I know what you are thinking. That is just crazy. Consider this…

    • Web hosting
    • Certification course
    • Training courses
    • Training videos
    • domain names (free and paid)
    • Website templates
    • Search engine optimization tools
    • A supportive community of 1000s and 1000s of like-minded people helping
    • Business tracking tools
    • And so much more (and I mean sooo much more)

    All this and more is available to guide and train you to create the lifestyle you desire through becoming a highly skilled and successful internet entrepreneur in whatever area YOU decide to pursue. That is why I am here!

     Nay Sayer’s

    Before I decided to become a member of Wealthy Affiliate, I did some serious research. I found many people that had a lot of bad things to say about Wealthy Affiliate. I must admit, it made me hesitant. I went through the Wealthy Affiliate program as a free member at first. I wanted to at least see what I was considering walking away from. After going through some of the information, reading about the owners and researching their history and what their goals for Wealthy Affiliate are – and have always been, what the cost was for the amount of tools I would have access to, the fact that in all the time this program has been on the internet, the cost has not gone up once, I decided that I would stick around for a while and give it a sincere try.

    I made my decision to dedicate myself to MY success. I discovered that with everything Wealthy Affiliate has to offer, everything that I have access to, there could only be one reason for the nay sayers. My success is based on my level of dedication and that alone. Wealthy Affiliate is not trying to get you to buy into a program that is going to get someone else rich. Wealthy Affiliate is a program which offers an incredible set of tools, training and support to help anyone learn how to become a successful internet presence. Your success is based on your input. If you succeed, you succeed because you utilized the available tools, dedicated yourself to succeed and stuck with it. Simple as that!

    There are no ‘get-rich-quick’ programs that work short of striking gold. I believe it is an illusion created by those that would take your money and run. That has been my experience over the years. You reap what you sow!

    Wealthy Affiliate is simply the most valuable tool you can find that stands behind your success, promotes your success, and truly wants you to succeed in whatever way YOU want to succeed.

    So to the nay sayer’s I say, Nothing is free and hard work delivers success every time. I am in it to win it. That’s my story and I am sticking to it!

    So what are you waiting for? If you have thought about becoming successful on the internet, this is a great place to achieve that goal. Come and check us out.

      I hold a Bachelors degree in Art with a concentration in Sculpture. I also hold a Masters degree in Higher Education. While this is suppose to mean something, it actually has not made my life better. So, I say, find your niche, Follow your niche, Be your niche. I am finding it would have been a much more productive choice to have started with Wealthy Affiliate instead of all that college. HMMM.
