I appreciate your input on Wealthy Affiliate. I am considering joining but I have a few questions. One, what if I already have domain names and hosting? It seems part of the monthly fee provides hosting so will my fee be reduced? Also, I’m coming from AWOL Academy. I purchased AWOL’s first program to get started and learned a lot but I have been turned off by the very strong sales pitch they use to get you to pay $10,000 to be an elite member. Can you provide a comparison of the value of the educational content between AWOL and WA?

Hi Jack: I’m an improved quadriplegic with limited use of my right hand and paralyzed lower extremities. I want to attempt Wealthy Affiliate and am buying a new MacBook laptop….so…Lots to do and learn. I’ll start with the free membership and go from there. Am I able to count on you or someone like you for help before I become a premium member? My income is VERY closely monitored by SSI and my Mutual of Omaha insurance payments each month.
I found your article to be very interesting and informative. I actually found it through your review of Kidazzler. I did become a member of Kidazzler (at the recommendation of someone on a business support group of which I am a member). I have not, however, given them any financial information yet as I have been trying to find more information on the company.

I am really excited about Wealthy Affilliate and I really want to give it a try subscribing from your link but I’d really like to know what I’m going to do to receive money. A friend of mine told me that I will build a web page to sell any product I want to. My question is, am I going to have a great quality web page to sell something? Will I have a well looking web page? Can a I see your best selling web page that you’ve got hosted inside Wealthy affilliate? Thanks in advance, If I see that my page will look great, I will gladly join WA from your link.
The biggest issue I’ve had with previous training programs and marketing communities is how outdated they get. With a Wealthy Affiliate Premium membership, you don’t need to worry about that. New trainings are added daily including live weekly video training sessions. You can also search and browse past trainings they’ve created over the years. With a premium membership, you also get unlimited access to community features which is one of my favorite aspects of Wealthy Affiliate. I spend hours per day simply chatting and messaging people who clicked on my Wealthy Affiliate affiliate link. When they use my link to sign up, I get notified, and the personal one-on-one coaching can begin. No other platform has offered this option before.
I promote the local marketing thing that changed my life, but I’ve actually built a multiple 6 figure business with it already (still building that biz to this day, with 4 full-time employees working for me) and no one in this coaching group is allowed to promote it like I am. I am just one of the few that is since I am literally one of the original success students (effectively killed my job in 2015 & became a full-time internet entrepreneur).
Many small businesses don't have room in their budgets to hire a full-time IT employee, so when their systems go on the fritz, they'll usually call a computer-savvy friend or family member. If you are tech savvy and have experience working on computers and networks, you can eliminate their need to call in a favor by offering immediate remote technical assistance.
The entire reason I created this site is because as an affiliate marketer, I started getting upset with the lack of ethics and misinformation being spread from MANY affiliate marketers, especially as it pertains to the “make money online” niche. So many online marketers out there promise you quick easy money if you just sign up and pay for this or that. Quite frankly, I’m sick of it. Growing an affiliate marketing business is just like starting any other business – it takes time, effort, and a lot of trial and error. I won’t get into it here, but if you’d like you can read my honest article about how long it takes to earn a full-time living with affiliate marketing.

That depends on your experience, budget, and goals. WordPress has a steeper learning curve and requires more maintenance. But over the long-term, it offers much more versatility and options to grow. If you self-host WordPress (rather than use WordPress.com), it can also be much cheaper than Wix. Wix focuses on onboarding and pure ease of use for someone who wants a solid, maintenance-free website without the frustration of a web designer or figuring out HTML issues.

Pick an Interest. You must first choose a niche for your business. This could be anything from cars and electronics, to computers, clothing and food. It is best to select something that interests you and there are many highly profitable niches to choose from. But if you have no ideas on what you like and how to choose a niche Wealthy Affiliate will give you great ideas to pick any profitable niche which still has room to get in to. 
I wouldn’t say you can’t be successful with a free domain, for example barenakedscam.siterubix.com, but having a personal domain will definitely help with branding and makes it more credible, plus there’s no restriction on the design if its your own domain. Free domains have certain restrictions in terms of the customization of the look and feel of the website.
This site is EXACTLY what I was looking for. I am a fit and frisky 56 y.o. single dad working 2 jobs, with an unquenchable thirst for learning new things. I’ve been surreptitiously studying the New Thought writers (from Atkinson to Proctor right up to some of the really sharp, young people creating YouTube videos). I think I’m getting a grip on the self-motivation and metaphysics of the whole thing, but am too scattered to decide exactly what kind of business to start! many of your 27 ideas I have some familiarity with (one of my old army buddies got me in to Bombardier Transport in early 2011 for 3 months to help meet a deadline on some tech pubs…it was a lot of fun! I was told I’m a natural, but could not find any more jobs in that sector….Oy Gevalt). Anyway, thank you so much for this site! I can give you a progress report every few months or so (including showing you how any websites I may be creating are doing). Happy New Year!
However, if you want anything that they don’t have – adding any additional code to the site is difficult. There are advanced marketing features like Schema for events, music, business info and reviews that they are adding at some point – but have not yet. Adding pixels, retargeting tools, custom share buttons, custom email collection tools – all are either difficult or unavailable.

Web Hosting Package - Having a website is necessary if you want to earn money online. Those who tell you that you don't need a site are either lying to you, or they are living in the past. Getting a website up and running (domain name and web host - see definition) requires extra cost (web hosting service typically cost $5 to $20 or more per month). As a premium member, you can host up to 20 domain names without paying an additional fee.


But there are problems with the domain specific email address. For some reason I can only receive emails. If I try to send or reply it gets caught in a perpetual loop and never gets sent. Technical support says it doesn’t see the problem. But their tests only use local servers which are not filtered thru a network. Will moving the domain to a different webhost fix this problem? I can’t be sure, but I need to look for a solution somewhere.
jack cao i am totally broke joining all shiny programmes and i am 4 percent since 4 months and got worried about truth. person posted link in the 4 percent fan page how i found you. i really need your guidance to build a profitable business online. i am committed to do what ever it takes to save my family from grief we are going through. a year back i had joined WA but that time i was completely new and didn’t continue and canceled for i couldn’t affording to pay but now i am ok .
Basically, you pick a profitable niche for your online business, and then you find an affiliate partner who has products available in that niche. Some of the most popular affiliate sites are Clickbank.com, Amazon.com, and CJ Affiliate by Conversant (formerly Commission Junction). Between them, they offer just about any digital information product (like ebooks, audio files, video files) or physical product you can think of. May big name companies and brands, like Wal-Mart, Home Depot, etc. run their affiliate programs through these third-party affiliate sites.

Highly competitive: If you can’t generate traffic, you don’t make any sales. This is the biggest challenge. When everyone can sign up for these affiliate offers for free (very low barrier for entry), now you have a situation where there is a boatload of competition for most affiliate opportunity out there. Unless you use paid traffic, most people get traffic from building a website and ranking it in Google, which is what Wealthy Affiliate teaches, but the problem is there’s only 10 spots on the first page of Google. & you have to compete for those spots with thousands of affiliates around the world.

Now that I’ve read your article, it appears that what you’ve written makes since. I’m a truck driver, who’s just trying to make something different of his life. What makes you any different ? How can I be sure that you’ll offer the same support that SFM claims to provide, but for less money ? I’m not being skeptical, cautious at this point because I don’t have much money to waste, but I am looking to make a difference.

OK I’m completely computer illiterate and have absolutely no skills at it…but I feel there’s a lot of potential for the local businesses in my area…but again, I feel so confused when I try to grasp the concept of how this all works..and every site just wants my money and all the “training sites” I’ve reviewed and researched have been scams or outdated..isn’t there anywhere I can get an actual legit mentor. 1 on 1..with maybe a handful of other people this mentor helps…not overbooked with a ton of people and no time or its like sitting in a class with too many students.. I just feel I could be really good at this but have no outlet to it..anyways sorry for probably wasting your time. Have a wonderful day!

…But doesn’t being an affiliate for Wealthy Affiliate make me just another one of those affiliate marketers who is being biased and just trying to make a buck off of you? Well, ummmm…. Sort of! But at least I’m honest about it, right? I hope you give me a chance by continuing to read this Wealthy Affiliate review. I have no intention of making this one big sales pitch. I just want to provide you with the information and allow you to make your own decision. If I get a commission, great! If not, that’s ok too. Here’s a screenshot of my Wealthy Affiliate profile.
I will still end up using other paid websites or services we need to create Promotions and promote our Products, But My REALY BIG QUESTION and I have searched everywhere For HOURS after HOURS, are you going to teach on how to generate Traffic and where to get it from, because everybody is talking about how you do it, find a product get traffic and get paid like it magically happens which I am curtain That the way most People explain it is just not true, so I am really hoping that your Program is actually teaching us all ins and outs, on how it works and how to do it and were to go,
