Welcome to My Wealthy Affiliate Review!
If you are looking to change your life for the better or simply want to earn more money to secure a financial freedom life, this is the time. Make use of this opportunity and start your very own online business. Like I always say, this is for anyone, even if you are a complete newbie or not a computer savvy person.
The review is kinda long because I wanted to explain in detail my personal experience and what WA is exactly all about, so sorry about that.
Do read it all the way till the end and get connected with me in the discussion section below asking me questions if you have any doubts if not I would love to see you inside WA! 🙂
How I got myself into the Online Business Thingy!!??
Alright allow me to introduce myself, My name is Kumar. I have been earning online since April 2015.
I believe you are interested to know what I was doing before I started working online. Well, it’s nothing that special… I was working in a day job related to what I studied(Environmental & Water Technology). Over the few years, I have already left countless of jobs because of TWO main reasons,
- I felt that I wasn’t treated fairly – I had to work extra hours out of my curriculum and some days bring home my work to complete. The worst part, is I am not compensated for all the extra time that I spend on work. The EWT industry is not easy, it’s about water testing, setting up plants to treat water/wastewater, noise monitoring and etc.
- The salary is simply just not enough.
There were times when I just feel lost, didn’t really know what am I going to do… I always wanted to start my own business, but I know I don’t have that much capital to start one. I tried searching on Google, “what kind of business can I start with a low/little budget” but the answers I got wasn’t something that pleased me. I kept searching till I found an article talking something about online business or something.
To be honest, at that time I had ZERO knowledge of what an online business was – I guess most of you would be having that same feeling right now. So what I did was just spent hours and hours on the internet try to search on “ways to make money online”, “how to get rich quickly online” and a couple more…
Most of the answers promised to make me rich instantly, but the funny thing was they didn’t really explain how exactly I am going to make money. Since I was a complete newbie that time, I blindly signed up and paid for the product. It’s only after that I realized I have been scammed(Don’t worry I not going to give you empty promises and not leave you hanging around… I will exactly explain to you how will you go about making money so do keep a look out for it)
Well, at the point of time I wasn’t just ready to throw in the towel yet… So, I kept doing more research and I eventually found a website that was truthful to me. They explained the money making process without me getting to pay them at all.
If you are wondering what site is it, it’s called Wealthy Affiliate! I really have to thank them for what they have done for me, without them I would not be where I am today. I always taught that you need to have a degree certificate to earn anywhere above $3,000 a month BUT I was wrong.
I was working juggling between my day job and my website for a few months. As my site grew and I started seeing consistent income every month. I told myself… “that’s it, time to quit my job and focus on my online business entirely!”
Frankly speaking, I was the only one happy about that decision I took. People around me were disappointed and they started advice me stuffs like “you can’t make money online”, “don’t waste your future” and much more.
Obviously, I was disappointed to hear such remarks from people. But I really didn’t want to miss this opportunity(maybe I was just too stubborn..in a good way :)). Over the next few months my site started to see some tremendous results as I was spending all my energy working on my site.
Wealthy Affiliate didn’t give me empty promises by showing me screenshots of fake bank accounts or video of them leaving a luxurious life and so on. What they did was steer me towards the right direction, pour me with all the information through their step-by-step training courses and assisted me when I was lost.
So… there you go! This is my journey from becoming an absolute unhappy person to a person who is making money way beyond his imagination. The best part is I work full time in the comfort of my own home. I don’t have to wake up at 7 a.m. in the morning and get ready to leave for work. Working from home allows me to sleep through the early mornings and wake up at my preferred timing which is 10 a.m., take a cold shower, drink a cup of coffee and start working on my site.
Don’t worry, to start your own online business you don’t need a degree certificate, a truck of capital, or any sort of prior knowledge. As long as you got the passion and willingness to succeed online is good enough.
How do I make money online? “4 steps guide”
Personally, I call this the “4 step guide”, because it makes it much easier for anyone to understand.
Step 1: Choose Your Interest
Why choose your interest? I have people asking me this question from time to time but my answer is always the same… choosing something that you are passionate is already a sign that you have quite some knowledge of experience about it. Sharing what you know with people who don’t know is the key to building a successful online business.
Interests can be literally anything like body building, manicure, weight loss, soccer, basketball, pets and etc.
Hey, Kumar !what if I don’t have any real interest, can I still build a successful business?
Well, I am glad you asked. The answer is WHY NOT?
But before I answer that, it can’t be that you really don’t have any interests. Everybody has something they like to do for instance a hobby. Take some time to think deep and see what are the things you like. You can take a piece of paper and list down like the top 5 favorite interests. Then you see which one stands out of the rest and select it as your top priority.
Doesn’t mean you should neglect the rest. Once you have created a website and let’s say it is pulling in a decent income but you still not satisfied. Don’t worry, start on your new project(the next favorite from your top). This is how you create multiple streams of income, don’t worry you are not restricted to only create one website. You can create how many you want, but just because you can don’t mean you should. Ideally, if you are just starting out focusing only on one is the BEST choice. As you progress and get more comfortable with things you can think of the next.
Anyway, for those of you who really have ZERO interests…you still can make a business out of it. I believe everybody here wants to make money right. If yes, that means it’s considered an interest also! There are two courses in Wealthy Affiliate, one is lesson based on your own interest and the other is to promote Wealthy Affiliate. So, you can promote Wealthy Affiliate and still make a full time income out of it. I know that a number of people who are doing that too.
Step 2: Build Your Website
Having your own website is the foundation to building a successful online business – you can have it no other way. A few years ago to build a website you need to have knowledge about coding and programming, but thanks to the advancement in technology you can now build a website in less than 30 seconds. Within Wealthy Affiliate, you can build two websites for absolutely free.
There are several themes which you can choose to make your website look aesthetically pleasing. All these can be done with just a few mouse clicks.
Step 3: Attract people
Like I mentioned earlier, the idea of creating an online business is to “help solve a problem”. So to bring people to your site, you must publish content that people are looking for. For instance, my interest is about weight and I want to help people who have difficulty losing weight. So I can write content like, “7 steps to lose weight” step 1. stop stuffing yourself with food, step 2. exercise regularly and so on..
I can also write product reviews like treadmills or weight loss products then recommend them to my visitors who are struggling to lose weight. This would help to solve their problem, am I correct?
Step 4: Earn Revenue
All these steps are interlinked therefore in order to reach the final step(which is to make money) you have to follow through all the steps.
So let’s say a person bought the product you recommended, therefore you will earn a commission from the sale. From then onwards it just about rinsing and repeating. In other words, keep doing the same to scale your business. The more product reviews you write, the greater the chances of reaching other people and thus making a sale.
I hope you got the idea of how I make money online. I just scratched the surface of everything, there are more details that will be covered in the training itself.
Take a look at the image on the right. These are a small list of some of the top earning blogs. “The Huffington Post” is right at the top earning over $2 million a month. I didn’t show you this so that you should expect to earn that figures too. I just want you to know that the potential of making money online is always there, some of this people come from a background with zero knowledge about online business but are earning great incomes online.
That is why I say, it’s time for you to get a fair share of the pie yourself!
Right below is some ideas that you could make an online business from,
Let’s take a sneak peak inside Wealthy Affiliate
What is Wealthy Affiliate?
Wealthy Affiliate is an online training platform that teaches you how to build an online business the right way. There are training videos, tutorials, classes, tasks assigned for you complete to improve your business and much more. This platform is built around a wonderful community, where everyone can openly communicate with each other through the live chat feature, creating blogs and etc.
The owners are constantly improving the training platform by adding new features every now and then to make the learning environment better for everyone.
What makes Wealthy Affiliate Unique?
Readily Accessible to the best training
There are over 500 training modules here at Wealthy Affiliate. You don’t have to worry about missing out any information because everything you need can be found by just typing the question in the search box. Most products offer e-books or a bunch of videos for a one-time payment, but the information that is found in those products are limited. In other words, you will need to do further research yourself to get more answers.
The training in Wealthy Affiliate is constantly updated to cater to the current trends. Every now and then search engine makes some slight changes to their algorithm(a mathematical formula to determine which website ranks first and such). There are many products online teaching their students outdated techniques which will never work and quite strangely this product are not cheap at all. The term for something that doesn’t deliver what it promises is known as a Scam.. in other words these products are a scam.
The key to getting lots of traffic is to get ranked on the first few pages of Google. When you get more traffic, the chances of you making sales increase! Well, you don’t have to worry about that because you will learn everything accordingly here at Wealthy Affiliate.
When I mean instant support, I really mean it! There is only a handful of platforms out there that has this Live Chat feature… most of them are still using a forum as support which is definitely slow. The Live Chat here at Wealthy Affiliate is available 24/7 and 365 days a year. There is no public holiday or rest day… I was working on my site even during the Christmas and New Year period and the support I received was still top notch.
Whenever you have any doubts just head over to the live chat and drop your question there. You will definitely get a response from fellow experienced members very fast.
The are other ways than live chat to get answers too. There are 13 classrooms, where each classroom is related to a specific category… you can find answers there too.
Or you can also create your own question and ask the community. They will answer it through your blog as well.
As a beginner, you are definitely bound to make mistakes or get lost along the way. I know this by experience because I got lost a few times myself but with support from other members, I managed to pull through and create myself a successful online business.
No barrier between you and experts
In Wealthy Affiliate there are over hundreds of successful business entrepreneurs. You can communicate and learn from them without any issues. These guys are willing to share with everyone their knowledge and business tips!
- You can send private messages to them
- Read their blog posts/ training to learn
- You can also see their websites and get an idea of what they are doing
Every day lots of people ask me questions too. I do take some time apart from working on my website to help answer their questions. Here in Wealthy Affiliate we have the “Pay it forward” motto.. in other words it’s like giving back to the community for the help they did for me in the past. If you are in doubt, you need no go any further. You can send me a private message and I will get back to you right away because I am connected at wealthy affiliate throughout the day.
Have you ever come across business owners helping you directly to improve your business? Honestly, I have never. Most of the time they will have a support team to answer the question. But here, you are able to directly send private messages to the Owners… the will get back to you within a day. Whenever I feel that I got more personal questions towards my business it’s better to ask the owners instead of other members because these guys have lots of years of internet marketing experience under their belt, therefore, their advice will make more sense going forward.
Still unsure whether you should join Wealthy Affiliate?
I also get this question often saying that they are unsure if Wealthy Affiliate is suitable for them… So I think might be necessary if I give a quick explanation here! Like I always say, Wealthy Affiliate is a training platform catered for everyone whether you are a newbie in internet marketing or even an expert but want to scale your business to the next level. You are all a potential candidate of WA!
In other words, Regardless of Country, Race, Religion, age or level of expertise are welcomed to join Wealthy Affiliate.

How Much Do I Have to Pay?
Starter member – Get your Free starter Account Here
The starter member is absolutely Free, you don’t have to enter your credit card details to try it at all. There are many scams online who ask you to pay upfront before getting access to their product, almost 99% of the time they turn out to be nothing but scams. Those people are just selling you a dream because in reality, their products don’t work at all.
Wealthy Affiliate is definitely not that kind of website. You don’t have to pay anything at all to try to the program. Just simply create a username by adding your name and email address and you will get full access to all the features and training. As a starter member, you will be able to build two websites for free – they are yours to keep!
You will get full access to the website for 7 days after then you will be given an option of whether you might want to upgrade to premium membership.
If you are interested in taking your business to the next level, then upgrading to premium is a no-brainer. The premium membership cost $49 per month and if you decided to upgrade within the first 7 days you will get a discount, therefore, you will only pay $19. Premium membership will give you full access to the live chat, additional training modules, keyword research tool, 25 free websites, unlimited hosting, 4 webinars live training every month and much more.
But of course, you have no obligations to become a premium member. You can still remain a start member and work your way up the charts.
Well think about this, spending $1.56 per day to build a successful online business is definitely worth the investment. Instead of spending $5 on a Starbucks coffee or eating MacDonald’s, why not use that money and put to better use… like building yourself a business?
I suggest you give some thought about it. Do you want to become financially free and make money while at home or work under a boss that always shouts at you everytime? I made that one decision that changed my life, not many people supported the decision I took. But where are these people now? Do they have anything to say after I become successful. No!
Don’t believe what other’s will say. There are always people to pull you down, but ultimately is your willpower and passion to succeed that will bring you to the top. If you need any help through the training I am always here to give you a hand… so don’t hesitate to ask me questions. There is no question considered a “stupid question”, so don’t be afraid to ask. Asking is the one and only way to LEARN!

The Opportunity Of A Lifetime
In a lifetime, only a few opportunities will come. A wise man’s decision would be to take these opportunities as a learning experience and improve himself. The internet is a great place to make money – if you know how/ It is also a great place to lose money( if you keep spending money on scams that claim to make you rich overnight)
More and more people are getting access to the internet which makes the potential for us to make money far greater. There are over 3 billion internet users currently, and millions of them are buying products online every single day. If you can make use of that opportunity and target just a small fraction of these people, you my friend will be able to earn far greater than what you get from a day job.
- Every day there are new products released in the market, this immediately becomes an opportunity for you to leverage on.
- A lot of business owners tend to neglect their site sooner or later, you can take this advantage and constantly add the latest products
- The online market is never saturated, there are tons of evergreen opportunity for you
Like I said earlier, you are not going to make money in a day. Look at an online business like any other business but the only difference is you spend far less capital to start one. If you have this mindset, you will automatically be one step closer to becoming a winner.
Imagine looking back at this 6 months or even 12 months from now, I know it’s a long process but the benefits are undeniable. You will thank yourself for taking that wise decision, I won’t be surprised you will even share it with your family and friends. Alright, that’s all I have for you. See you at the top my friend 🙂
Wealthy Affiliate Earning Potential
One of the most frequent questions I get all the time from new WA members and people who are yet to join: “What is the earning potential with Wealthy Affiliate? Can I become successful? How much money can I really make within a year”. There is no specific answer to these questions. Some people who just started about makes few bucks per month; some go on to make $100,000+ per month.
Even though there is no precise answer to this question, I can tell you this: The amount of money you can ultimately earn is totally up to you – What you do and how you are going to do it. The individuals who are highly successful have ONE thing in common – All of them followed the training and took substantial action. Learning how to do is awesome but in order to start actually earning, you have to apply what you learned.
Don’t try to quote me, but if you sincerely and diligently go through WA training and build a business the exact way they teach you, I really don’t see why you can make at least $20,000++ in your year. I have seen a lot of newbie internet marketers come and go, the common mistake they are doing time after time is no take actions seriously and get distracted by shiny objects that promise them millions overnight.
This is where Wealthy Affiliate comes in and helps you with everything. They have already carved out a realistic plan for you right from day 1. Just follow the courses and complete the tasks assigned to you. And most importantly, STAY FOCUS and you will definitely become successful.
I have come to the end of my Wealthy Affiliate Review. My apologies it was a bit too long, I really tried my best to shorten as much as I can. If you have any question, please feel free to drop me a comment right below or you can even send me a straight private message at Wealthy Affiliate. I am looking forward to working with you and helping you build a successful online business.

I’m sure now you could really see the potential. I’m not going to give you false hopes saying that you are going to make millions of dollars tomorrow. But I’m going to tell you that if you follow the training and take actions you can achieve similar results or even better. How much you are going to earn really depends on yourself, the more effort you put in…the more you earn. – That’s the only secret to success!
No Passion? NVM… Start a Business Promoting Wealthy Affiliate
Over the months, I have been receiving a ton of emails from my viewers asking me, “How do I start an online business if I don’t have any passion yet”. Well, I know some of you reading this right now might be feeling the same… so I have included this section here especially for you guy.
Of course, starting a niche based on your passion would be an ideal choice going forward. But, if you don’t have one at the moment, it doesn’t mean you still can’t generate good income online. You can always choose to start with the Affiliate BootCamp which will teach you step-by-step to make money through promoting WA.
How much money can you make through the WA BootCamp?
The image above is the WA BootCamp calculator used to estimate how much money you can make per month promoting Wealthy Affiliate. As you can see in scenario 2, if you can bring in 50 referrals per day at 12% upgrade rate, you can easily bank in over $22k per month. Is it possible? Definitely! If you spend more time on it.
The column on the left is my personal current stats. On average I bring in 10 referrals per day at 10% upgrade rate which makes me about $2.4k per month. The best part is I don’t spend much time doing this at all. At most, I spend 2-3 hours of research and writing and I get paid.
You can always choose to do this full-time or even part-time. Meaning, you keep your day job, and do this during your free time. It’s always great to find multiple avenues of income, right?
I hope this section here has shed some light into those who doesn’t have a passion for starting your own niche business.
You can always start with the WA BootCamp first and branch out with other projects later on.
Glance of My This Month Earnings(December 2016)
As you can see, the month is still young. We are only on the 5th of December and I already have over $1500 in commissions. This income will definitely continue to increase over the next couple of weeks and I reckon that I will hit at least between $3,000 t0 $4,000 for this month and this is only for one of my websites.
You can scale to how many websites you are going to run and how much money you can earn. All these will depend on you. But if you are just starting out, it’s always good to just focus on one website. Once you are comfortable with the first(and it’s earning some money), you can slowly start to work on your newer site but always remember that you shouldn’t neglect your first too.

A: Wealthy Affiliate is a community-based training platform that teaches you how to build an online business from scratch. Along the way, you certainly can learn to create and sell your own products.

BUT WA doesn’t work that way, you can bring your website with you whenever you want.

Q: What if My English is not good? Can I still start an online business?
A: As long as you have basic skills like reading, typing, an internet connection and a computer, you can start building an online business. English doesn’t have to be your native/first language in order to start an online business. English isn’t my first language too but hey, I am making full-time income from it.
