My Wealthy Affiliate Review

[This Is By Far My No 1 Recommend Program For Beginners Looking To Make Money Online]

If you are familiar with me and have been on my blog often you probably know that I am a member of Wealthy Affiliate. This is where I got my start in online business and I can pretty much attribute nearly all of my success online to this particular program.

And if you don’t know me then here you go: My name is Kyle, hence… “Kyles-Blog.com”, and I make money online. And enough of it to live off of.

But I don’t consider myself a guru by any means, I don’t consider myself to be a genius or anything special really. I’m just a guy that came across a good opportunity and put in the work that it takes to become successful. You can read my “about me” page if you want to learn more about me. But basically basically back in 2015 I was desperate to make money online because my girlfriend was applying to med-schools all across the country and didn’t know where she would end up. I need geographical freedom so that I could go where she would go and an online income was the solution.

Fast forward a bit and here I am now making $6,000+ a month online doing this stuff. I never would have believed it back then but I guess hard work pays off.

But I’m probably getting a little ahead of myself here. I didn’t even introduce Wealthy Affiliate yet so you have no idea what it is, what its all about, or anything.

What Is Wealthy Affiliate?

Wealthy Affiliate

Wealthy Affiliate is an online business training platform. You could kind of think of it as an “all inclusive” type of deal. As a member you get the training you need to build an online business; you get the tools that are required to do so; and you get the support that everyone needs every once in a while when you get confused or stuck on something.

When you sign up at Wealthy Affiliate you have access to a step by step training course that will take you from nothing at all to having your own online business up and running.

The way they teach you to make money online is by promoting products. Its called affiliate marketing and this is when you promote products online for companies. Amazon, Walmart, Best Buy, Apple, Nike, Macy’s… every big retailer has an affiliate program that anyone can sign up to for free and make money doing this. And when you do this you are not an employee, you are simply an independent contractor that can work as much or as little as you want to.

To summarize how this business model all works here you go: you promote a product, someone clicks your promotion, they are directed to the online store (Amazon for example) to buy it, they purchase the product, you get paid a commission.

Its a great business model that I still make 95% of my online income from.

What Makes Wealthy Affiliate So Great?

Whenever a beginner or newbie comes to me and is looking for a legitimate way to make money online I always point them over to Wealthy Affiliate. The reason is that I know it works because I am living proof.

But there are many reasons for this. Wealthy Affiliate is a great way particularly for beginners to get started because it is simple, it is affordable, and support that is available is great.

Its Simple

The training provided here really could not get any better as far as I see it. It is laid out in a step-by-step manner and guides you along each part of the process. There are video tutorials for all the lessons and these make it very easy to follow along with because they show and explain to you what to do and how to do it.

On top of the training being very simple and easy to follow, the business model here also makes this great for beginners. Affiliate marketing is an excellent choice for beginners looking to make money online and is often the path many big time online marketers took when they got their start in the online world.

The reason it is so great for beginners is because all you have to worry about is promoting products. You don’t have to develop your own product. You just choose a product that is already a good seller and promote it, earning commissions from each sale you help make. You don’t have to deal with customer service or any of the complications that come with selling your own products either.

Its Affordable

Wealthy Affiliate offers a free membership which is almost unheard of in this industry. You hear about free trials all the time but WA’s free Starter Membership is something you can keep for life. This membership is a way for newcomers to “test out the system” without risking a penny.

It provides training, access to tools, and 2 free websites + hosting along with some other things I probably can’t think of at the moment.

Wealthy Affiliate also has a paid membership but this is something you can do after you already get your online business up and running. Even the paid membership is very affordable and well worth the price considering what you get with it.

When I started I was a scam victim and if the free membership wasn’t offered I might have never joined in the first place. I’m glad things turned out the way they did though.

The Support Is Great

Support is a must when it comes to online programs. Online courses and programs are notorious for lack of support. You don’t get that “in-class” guidance with most of them.

Wealthy Affiliate is very good in this area. There are numerous ways that you can get support as a member so getting stuck on something is really not a problem. When I started out I had no problem getting through the training. Sure I would get confused at times but I made it through without hassle.

One of the best ways to get instant support is through the live chat feature inside WA. You can literally get help within minutes here.

A Look Inside Wealthy Affiliate

Just to give you an idea of what all Wealthy Affiliate offers I’ll give you a look at some of the training along with some tools that you will have access to.

The training

When you join you can immediately start training. There are 5 core courses with 10 lessons in each. These will walk you through the process of getting your online business up and running. They are very well laid out and are easy to follow.

Just to give you an idea of what to expect, here are what the 10 lessons in course 1 will be about…


Now I know this may seem a bit overwhelming at first but what you have to realize is that it is broken down step by step. This training is seriously not hard to get through at all. And I honestly mean that.

One nice feature within the training is a checklist where you can check of each task as you move along. This makes it so that you follow along better and don’t get lost.

The Tools

It seems that the website building part of this all is what really makes people nervous. The reality is that no one should be nervous about this. You don’t need any tech skills or anything like that. The days of coding and building a website on your own are in the past.

Wealthy Affiliate has one of the easiest to use website builders that I know of. Building a site can be done in 4 simple steps and here is a screenshot inside WA to show you this…

There are other tools that WA provides, such as the Keyword Research Tool, but these are things you will learn how to use in the training.

What Other People Think About WA

As with anything no matter how good it is, there are always going to be people that complain and don’t like it. But overall the general consensus about WA is very good. People like it because it gives value and doesn’t lead you on into thinking you are going to make it rich in the next week.

By the way, I should have mentioned that if I haven’t already…. you won’t “get rich quick”! This takes time and hard work, which is what anything in life worth having takes.

Anyway… here are a few screenshots of reviews from WA members, two of them which have been members for many years…

The Cost

Wealthy Affiliate has 2 memberships that they offer. They have the free Starter Membership that I mentioned earlier and then they have a paid Premium Membership, which is how they make money and stay in business.

The free Starter Membership is something that you would probably expect to not be all that great because it is free but it actually is pretty darn awesome. With this membership you get access to Course 1 that includes 10 lesson, Phase 1 of Affiliate Bootcamp with another 10 lessons, and you will get access to 2 classrooms of training. You will also get limited access to the keyword research tool and you will get 2 free websites plus website hosting.

The Premium Membership gives you everything that WA has to offer. You get all 5 training courses and all 5 Phases of Affiliate Bootcamp, access to all 13 training classrooms, unlimited use of the keyword research tool, unlimited website hosting, and a bunch bunch more.

The Premium Membership is absolutely amazing. It give you everything you need and there are no hidden costs or upsells after that. However, I still always recommend that beginners start out with the free Starter Membership. It is just a better choice because its completely risk free and you never know if you really are going to like something until you try it. So my advice would be to sign up for your free Starter Membership here.

This same free Starter Membership is how I started out back in 2015. Its changed some with updated information but the membership is just as good as it was back then. It gives you a free start and if its something that you can see yourself doing for the long-run you can always upgrade your membership to premium later on if you wish.

If you want to get started for free with the Starter Membership you can CLICK HERE to create your free account or you can click the link I provided below. This will take you to the page at Wealthy Affiliate where you can easily create your account.

Some Personal Proof That This Works

The method of making money online that Wealthy Affiliate teaches you takes time and real work. But one of the nice things about it is that you can continually build upon your income more and more. This business is very cumulative in nature and you will start out earning nothing. Then you can build that up to earn $10 a day, then $20 a day, then $30, and $40, and $50, and on and on.

It is not uncommon for me to have a day where I make over $200, as you can see with my Wealthy Affiliate account screenshot below…

I have actually had several days where I have made close to $400. Unfortunately I forgot to take a screenshot of my account for those days and I can’t go back in time and take one.

There is definitely a lot of potential here.

And to show you the cumulative nature of this business and how you can increase your income more and more here is a screenshot of my earnings over a 12 month period. As you can see I was really able to grow my business. I started out with nothing, went on to earning a little, and now am making a living doing this.

UPDATE (11/2017): I’m making consistently over $6,000 a month now. This is a testament to the cumulative nature of this. Pretty awesome stuff…

UPDATE (10/2018): It’s been a while since I posted an update but things are still going strong and steady!

My Best Advice

Wealthy Affiliate is a great training program that anyone looking to make money online should try out. What they teach is not overly complicated and there is really no good reason why you shouldn’t be able to be successful if you are smart enough to follow along with what I am writing here. I’m serious when I say there is nothing really that hard to do. It just takes time and hard work.

So if you are willing to put in the time and work then why not go for it? You have nothing to lose by joining as a Starter Member for free.

Just go for it. Sign up here for free and see what you think. Put in the work and you could be making a living like me soon enough.

You mention that it takes time and hard work, but you don’t actually state what that work is, what is hard about it(is there research you have to do and if so how much and where?), and how much time does it takes (per day, per week, etc).
Your listing about doesn’t show how many hours you worked.

Can you specify??

Also, on the listing above, it states the number of clicks on your site, obviously the more clicks the better chance to make money…..so how do you get your site to be available to the user, do you need to pay to get your site to bubble to the top of available websites? So is that one reason why the starter program only makes a lesser amount?


    Kyle - October 3, 2017

    Hi Teresa,

    The work you will be doing consists of writing blog articles on your website that you can easily create inside WA. You can write about dogs, golf, makeup… your website can be on anything really. You will get traffic to yours site by getting your content ranked in Google. This is free to do but obviously it takes work, which is the writing part of it.

    I started off working part time because I had another job. I was working about 2 to 3 hours a day. Then I slowly started making more and more and eventually quit my job. Now I work about 5 hours a day doing this.

Keman - October 8, 2017

Can you tell me the website you have been making so much money with? Because this has an Alexa rank of 11,348,413. So, you must be joking if you would tell me that this is the website from which you make money. I’m just being honest bro so don’t get offended.

Anyways, the article looked great but could you prove the legitimacy of your earnings by telling me the website’s domain name.


    Kyle - October 8, 2017

    My most profitable site is onlinefinancialsuccessstory.com. I don’t know the Alexa rank of it. I get about 2k visitors a day on it all from SEO.

Marjorie - October 12, 2017

I don’t know what website you want me to put on this ; but I put you site on the website request. My experience is very small; and I was gullible to fall for too many websites before I found more about scam sites in you review. I got taken by too many programs (at least 2 programs too many), at thousands of dollars in debt. I hope more people will find you site reviews so they won’t be scammed the way I was. I want to work in my spare time learning on my new computer. Have more questions about this new computer than (carter has liver pills) as quoted. Need to make money as soon as can. Am just getting started with wealthy affiliate as you suggested. Need pointers from time to time. Where do you talk to your support team for pointers with computers. Help please.

    Kyle - October 12, 2017

    Marjorie I hope Wealthy Affiliate is what you are looking for. For technical support there is the SiteSupport team at WA. You can always ask other members for help to. You can contact me directly at WA through my profile.

Nobert Udensi - November 3, 2017

Dear Kyle,

How are you and nice reading about you and youtr advise and strong motivation. I have been reading about you and WA for days now and I have registered and account with WA but hoping I will be allowed to use the free membership to learn about online affialiate marketing. To be honest with you iam just a fresh and enovice in this field and neither do I have my own website or know how to build one for myself. Please you said above that WA have free membership account where frash begeners can be trained and equiped first before they will make payment to become a paid membership…but mine immediately registering took me payment page and I cannot go any further nor able to click on anything to work unless a pay.

Dear Kyle, like I asid aove I am a feah and a novice to this but trust me I can do anything my heart accept to do and this what my mind accept to do and I will not take me much to know it…I really need help from you to have some training either through the free membership or any way.

I will look forward for your advise.



    Kyle - November 3, 2017

    Hi Nobert,

    The reason for the problem is because Wealthy Affiliate does not allow free memberships in certain countries, including Nigeria, Pakistan, and some others due to spam reasons.

    But I will see if there is a way around this.

Nobert Udensi - November 3, 2017

Dear Kyle,

I really appreciate your kind and quick response to me…I really appreciate your effort and I have no blame for the WA because they are right on their decision as truly millions of African youth do engage on stealing from people through the internet. But believe me, there are still billions of Africans who are still God-fearing, truthful and genuine and I fall to that group who although genuine but suffering from the consequences of the record the bad once have left stuck in the name Africans.

Kyle, Please help me out because I really want to learn and ready to work very hard to earn money, but I cannot do this if I cannot get trained first, and I go through the training from the paid membership it will take me some time while my subscription will be running and to tell you the truth I am just a hustler, not a rich person…Please help me out in this regard. There is no job, I’m just struggling to have something to do, and after thinking of it all I am certain that this medium is the best way to start it and really make because of the internet and its marketing will never be out of date, so it’s my dream and I am here.. Please help me and let me in.

Kyle, please I am depending on you, and waiting to hear from you as fast as the first.

I will appreciate your kind help,


    Kyle - November 5, 2017

    Hi Nobert. Unfortunately only the premium membership is offered for Nigerians. I know its not the best choice to start out but it is only $19 for the first month. The choice is yours. I’m sorry that it is this way.

Angie - November 7, 2017

Hey Kyle!

I really enjoyed reading your article. Quite inspiring and exciting.
I have a deep passion in writing articles and creating content and I’m sure i would really benefit from Wealthy Affiliate.

However when joining the site I was immediately informed that the Free Membership is not available in my country and I’m directed only to the payment page for Premium membership.

I actually found this a little bit offensive and quite unfair. Why is it that those willing to undergo the training must pay first?

I have read a number of your articles and I was impressed by the fact that you kept warning your readers against scam sites that ask you to pay before you have even undergone any training session or started earning.

I was really excited about joining WA because you had successfully convinced me (and many other readers) that this is not one of those scam sites. However, it seems that I was wrong.

There is no way you can ask us to immediately pay for the premium membership with no guarantee that I will earn a dollar or that I will enjoy what the site has to offer.

I don’t really understand exactly what risk the site is taking by offering us an opportunity to first try out the Free Starter Membership before we can choose to upgrade as premium members.

Anyways, Good luck!

    Kyle - November 12, 2017

    Hi Angie,

    There are some countries that are banned from the free Starter Membership due to spam reasons. This is unfortunate but it is just the way it is. I don’t recommend the premium membership to start out either but its your only choice so I really don’t know what to tell you.

    What country are you from by the way?

krista Lea spengler - November 10, 2017

Dear Kyle,
Omg, I am telling you, I can barely stand to open my email, cuz of all the get rich quick scams. I have bought into two, but did nothing with them. “Profit with our sites” and
“paid to send emails” Heard of them? Anyway, I am a single mom in need of just lil extra money $100-$200 a week. Can I do WA on my smartphone? And is this available in India. The free start up one?

    Kyle - November 10, 2017

    Hi Krista, yes I have heard of both of those programs.

    Unfortunately the free membership is not available in India. This is one of the few countries where it is not. Also it might be possible on a smartphone but I definitely would not recommend it. It would make it extremely difficult.

Steve - November 20, 2017

So checking into a few things and seems there are some information that seems to contradict itself. One of the sites that shows up says you started this in 2015 but another says 2016. Also some of the reviews on this page there are quite a few spelling mistakes that do not add up to people who want to write blogs.

    Kyle - November 21, 2017

    Hi Steve,

    What site says I started this in 2016? I joined WA in 2015 just to be clear. And spelling mistakes are part of the job. They happen and they happen to everybody. I fix what I can but I’m bound to miss mistakes hear and there.

    If you could point me to some of my spelling mistakes it would be appreciated. I’ll fix them.

      Christian - April 16, 2019

      The word “hear” that you used in your second-to-last sentence should be spelled “here”.

        Kyle - April 20, 2019

        Thank you! I’ll correct that!

        Update: Never mind. I couldn’t find what you are talking about.

Stephon - December 2, 2017

Hi Kyle,

I’m a wealthy affiliate member who started in 2015 and didn’t really know what I had as far as training until recently. I recently upgraded to premium after building my own blog with external hosting. WA definitely makes Internet Marketing easy for those who are just starting out. It’s common for people to have a little skepticism after being burnt by other programs.

I randomly ran across your’s and another WA member’s websites. I read them for inspiration especially since I’d like to quit my day job as well one day.

So if you just so happen to be reading through all the comments on Kyle’s site like me, just take the step and join the WA family. I’m enjoying the training so far. It’s thorough, easy to understand and straight to the point. The founders are amazing for offering as much as they do. Feel free to put all doubt aside and give it a shot. You won’t be sorry you did.

    Kyle - December 4, 2017

    Stephon, nice to see another Wealthy Affiliate member stop by. I hope you achieve your dreams and end up being able to quit that day job soon!

Martin - December 13, 2017

Hey Kyle,

I’m fortunate with having a great job that I love, however I have friends that are struggling in their jobs and wishing they could quit. What would you say a realistic time is for making let’s say 2K a month suing this program ?


    Kyle - December 14, 2017

    Martin honestly there is no real good time frame I can give you. For me it took quite a while, over 8 months. But then again I wasn’t focused in the beginning, nor did I really believe it would work. There are people that make this much in less time and there are people that it takes even longer. One thing is for sure… this does take time, so if you don’t have time then this isn’t for you.

Teri D - December 15, 2017

Hi Kyle,
Thank you for all your information. I’m a retired person looking to begin a second career in the internet world but it is scary out there. I’ve done a lot of research and there are a lot of scams out there. Your blog is interesting and WA seems like a way to go. I’m going to try to sign up for the free starter and see how it goes. Wish me luck! I do appreciate it. I will keep you posted. Teri

    Kyle - December 15, 2017

    Hi Teri. I do wish you luck! WA is a great place.

Frances B - December 17, 2017

Hi Kyle. I am just beginning to build my affiliate website, but I am not a member of WA yet. I really need to make between $100 – $250 dollars a day guaranteed in 30 – 60 days, otherwise WA is not worth it to me. I need a work at home system that will make money as soon as possible.

    Kyle - December 19, 2017

    Hi Frances. I’ll be honest with you. The method of making money online that WA teaches is great but it takes time. It is extremely unlikely that you will be able to make $100 – $250 per day in 30-60 days. So I wouldn’t recommend it in your circumstance.

Jeff - December 30, 2017

Hello Kyle, just wondering if this system works in canada and if there are any restrictions for using this system in canada.

    Kyle - December 30, 2017

    Hi Jeff. Yes it works fine in Canada and their are no restrictions. The creators are actually from Canada… just a fun fact.

Bernice - January 10, 2018

Do you have to recruit others to make money or is it blogging to direct traffic to companies like Macy’s, Walmart, Target, etc.?

    Kyle - January 10, 2018

    Hi Bernice. You don’t have to recruit but there are many different affiliate programs out there, some of which do have recruitment type models. But most of them are like you said, you just refer people to online stores like Walmart, Target, Amazon, etc and get paid commissions if they buy anything.

STEZO - January 16, 2018

Hey Kyle, I really like what you said about WA and happy your making money. I’m going to do a little more research, but I’m definitely interested. I kinda appreciate the training process and that it takes time. We all would like fast Money, but they’re usually scams. Just wanted to Thank you Chief for the information and the quick responses to these questions I’ve been reading from others. Wish me luck.

    Kyle - January 18, 2018

    Thank you for the kind words Stezo. I wish you the best.

mikee - January 24, 2018

Can not beat the Honesty Here!!!!!

Ryan - January 25, 2018

How long did it take you to start making $6,000 monthly? Was it all from this one website or was it several, if so how many? when did you first join wealthy affiliate?

    Kyle - January 26, 2018

    Hi. I joined WA in 2015 and didn’t start making $6,000 a month until around a year and a half later. However, before making $6k per month I was making in the $5,000’s. And before that in the $4,000’s. And before that in the $3,000’s. I would also say that I’m not the best example for this because when I started out I lost focus after a month or so and dedicated less time than I could have. Additionally I was working a dead-end job when I started which took up some time.

    This business model is very cumulative in nature. You start out earning nothing. Then you start earning a little, and a little more, and a little more, and a little more, all while doing the same amount of work from day to day. This has to do with how Google ranks you and such.

Tim Joseph - January 25, 2018

Hi Kyle,
I run a photography business and have been on the Internet since it started. 1994, a small kiosk operator came into my art gallery in a local mall.He explained that there was this new thing he was taking courses in, talked about the World Wide Web and told me that my business was so visually oriented that it would make a fantastic website. I agreed and for a very reasonable fee he had set up a template style website that I could maintain myself, enter new photos, make sales online. So my original domain is still online but was converted to an e-commerce database driven website in 2003. Since than I created my own WordPress website.The point is that I have a strong presence on the Internet. Great organic results if the right keywords are used.My business is small, local based, selling art photos of the cities around the my service area and the rest of the state I’m in. Everyday I get dozens of emails from “Google affiliates”., most want to do seo, build a new site, but recently received a call from someone claiming to be able to build me a website for $350.00 that I could add my art too, they will place the advertisements and I would make a percentage of sales, ranging from 4% to 80%. Sounds tempting, but we all know if it sounds to good to be true, then it’s not. I am definetly getting too old to do what I was doing 25 years ago and would like nothing more than to have a way to sell my photos, let someone fullfill the framing orders. I’d like to self fulfill the orders for prints, but do no framing. The part about placing advertisements for photography equipment sounds great because I have a lot of experience and practical knowledge, so I can easily write blogs about it, make recommendations, show sample photos, etc. I just wonder if it’s really worth pursing and would like to get your opinion.

    Kyle - January 26, 2018

    Hi Tim. First off, I would not pay those people to create you a site and then take 4-80% commissions on sales. That is absurd.

    As far as blogging and promoting products in the photography niche, I do think this is something that you could pursue and make money off of. There are a lot of people that do plenty of research online in this niche before purchasing products. Also, many of the products are expensive which means higher commissions. Will there be competition? Yes. Will it be easy to do? No. But everything takes time and work.

    I have not been personally involved in this niche but just from looking at it this does have potential. Also since you have a lot of experience that is great.

    The choice is ultimately up to you. If you do want to blog and make money promoting products on your website then Wealthy Affiliate is the best place I know of to get started. I guess you don’t really know if you will like it until you try though.

António Nobre - January 29, 2018

For now I would like to ask you how do you receive your winnings at your home or at your bank and become wealthy-affiliate in order to be able to use.

And for Portugal it is possible to register for free

Thank you

    Kyle - January 31, 2018

    Most affiliate programs will pay through PayPal, as Wealthy Affiliate does, or directly into your bank account.

    I’m not sure if you will be able to get the free membership. There are some countries that are excluded. You would have to try to find out.

Graham Bunford - January 30, 2018

is this the same situation as this link


or simular?


    Kyle - January 31, 2018

    Hi Graham. They are similar and teach the same business models but the way that they teach them is different. Awol Academy pushes people more to purchase upsells where Wealthy Affiliate has no upsells. Also Awol Academy has “high ticket” products that cost in the thousands of dollars range whereas Wealthy Affiliate includes everything in their premium membership.

    I’m not saying that you can’t make money with Awol Academy but I don’t care for their sneaky marketing techniques and how they operate. Wealthy Affiliate also has more to offer especially when it comes to the community. But I always suggest you do your own research to see whats right for you.

Lindsey - February 7, 2018

Hi Kyle,
I just had a quick question about whether or not it’s possible to use a site that’s already mostly set up? I’ve been working very hard to get my blog up and running and I’d hate to start all over again. I own my domain already so that part is already done – take a look? Let me know what you think? Is WA still something I could do or would I have to start all over? Starting over is something I’d hate to do and would resist until it was absolutely necessary…

Your thoughts are appreciated.

Lindsey Parkinson

    Kyle - February 8, 2018

    Hi Lindsey. I’m not exactly sure how all of that works. I see that your site is powered by Wix website builder. At WA they use WordPress. I think there is a chance you could migrate your site over but I’m not 100% sure on that. I do know that you would be able to migrate your domain over for sure though.

Rico - February 9, 2018

Hi Kyle,

I have my own, very niche, products and am just starting my company around them. I am technically quite fluent and have build my own app (with some help). Do you think the marketing techniques thought in WA are broad enough to be applied to my situation promoting my own brand/products, or are they specific to affiliate marketing?

Thanks for letting me know.

    Hi Rico. That depends on what your niche is. At the core of WA what you are taught is to get content ranked in Google in order to get free traffic. You can then use this traffic for anything its just that affiliate marketing is the easiest for beginners.

    So if you think you can create content around your niche then it might be able to work out.

Hi Kyle. Just read your blog on Paul Lynce very interesting, I’ve be scammed out of cash quite a few time unfortunately, so I wanted to know does this WA real work? how is the support team are they on hand 24/7, can you make real cash from this? also can you use fb ad to send traffic to what you are promoting?

    Kyle - February 13, 2018

    Hi Mansur. Yes WA works but like anything in life there are a handful of people that succeed and people that fail. I’ve been one has went full-time with what WA taught me and make a living doing this now.

    The WA support is great if you are a Premium member but not great if you are a free Starter member. You can send traffic to what you are promoting via FB ads but that isn’t what WA teaches. WA teaches how to get free traffic from Google and other search engines.

Hi, Kyle! I am successful network marketer who has done it the old “belly to belly” way for 2 years. I retired twice in what I made but recently came out of retirement for a company I love. It supplies great products and websites. I can write copy as both of my husbands were in advertising. Blogs should not be a challenge. Can I use this system to drive people to those sites? I need to learn to market online. M Network is my focus but I have about 60k people who need to learn “the new way of marketing”. If we have all of that already on board, do you think this would help jettison the business?
And BTW, I really like your honesty!

    Kyle - February 14, 2018

    Hi Kat. Yes you could use what WA teaches and provides to drive traffic to your other businesses. At the core of what WA teaches is SEO, which basically is how to get your site ranked in Google and other search engines to get free traffic from them. You do this by blogging, article writing, whatever you want to call it.

    And I appreciate the compliment!

Alabi - February 14, 2018

Hi good morning. Please I am from Nigeria and since WA has restricted me from joining. Please what other site can I benefit from that’s legit and easy as well? Thanks Alabi

Alabi - February 16, 2018

Hi good evening. Please I wrote earlier because I am from Nigeria and am not able to register. Please what other site can I use. Thanks

    Kyle - February 18, 2018

    Hi Alabi. I’m not really sure. Affilorama is another site that teaches affiliate marketing but its not as good. At Wealthy Affiliate you would have to pay for the premium membership from the start in order to join.

Concetta Watts - February 20, 2018

Hi Kyle, I appreciate your article very much, it was very helpful. I have some ideas about the niches that I could blog about.I would like have a niche that i not only like but is in demande. My question is: Would this program teach you how to pick the right domain name using the right keywords? Will it show you what key words to use to set you apart for instance in a (highly competitive niche) to draw traffic or get ranked on Google.

Thank You,


    Kyle - February 21, 2018

    Hi Connie.

    Yes, Wealthy Affiliate’s main focus for traffic generation is getting ranked in the search engines. You will learn how to find specific keywords and rank for them.

Andy Larson - February 27, 2018

Hi Kyle!
I stumbled upon your blog after listening to a long presentation by Matt Badiali about his Real Wealth Strategist offer. Once you severely dented his honesty factor with the “stock photos” examples, I was pretty much out the proverbial door. Then I clicked on your recommendation link and read from your blog about Wealthy Affiliate.

I am embarrassed to write that I have tried using investing advice from Zach Scheidt, Chief Income Officer, Agora Financial. My embarrassment is not that I think he is not legitimate. I just had no real clue what I was doing and did not understand (still don’t) how to keep up with the mechanics of his options recommendations and ended up holding stocks that still are mostly losing money. I have recommended for them to start a mentoring program with access to people who can walk you through these mechanics when you start.

Anyway, I am very gun shy about things now. I have a dream to change education, teach our kids how to think critically and collaboratively and find the truth in what ever they read. I have a great gaming website for this, http://www.craniumcore.com, and it takes a lot of my time to keep this business going because I model my best practice classroom methods for free around the country in schools and also spend time writing gaming questions for chapters of popular books.

Time is precious for me , as it is for everyone. I do not have a lot of time to spare and, consequently am curious to know if it is even reasonable to consider this Wealthy Affiliate alternative under those circumstances.

Sorry for the long (sob story) explanation and communication here. Your words did interest and inspire me, for what it is worth.


    Kyle - February 28, 2018

    Hi Andy.

    Well I’m glad you appreciated the review. I took a look at your website. The training and tools that Wealthy Affiliate provides could definitely help you increase traffic to your site and ultimately get more paying users. However the question is how much? I don’t know how much it would be worth it since there is just a single product. When I create websites I do so for certain niches and then am able to promote many different products within that niche.

    I think its worth looking into but I’m just not sure how much you could benefit.

Billie - March 6, 2018

Dear Kyle; Thank you for your write ups, I read this, and the Matt thing. I appreciate the info. Can they shoot me an email, or do I have to sign up first ? Thank you

    Kyle - March 6, 2018

    Hi Billie. You would have to sign up first. What do you want to know that you want them to email you about? I might be able to help.

Ray - March 9, 2018


I am not sure how interwoven your sites are, but on the roughly 5 pages I have seen, there are no affiliate links except WA. Do you make all your money signing people up for WA?

    Kyle - March 10, 2018

    WA is my main promotion on this site by far, yes.

Kristen P. - March 11, 2018

Hi there, Kyle!

I’m excited to hear about your hard earned success through WA! It’s very inspiring to know that you can make a living working online! I’ve been trying to find a legitimate online job, but it’s either petty work or scams. Luckily, I haven’t fallen for any scams, but my heart goes out to those who have fallen victim before.

I’m curious about WA though, and would love to test it out. I have a question that I might have to ask elsewhere, but I’d like to see if you can help.

My mom, sister and I own our own business, but we haven’t had much success as life keeps happening, making it hard to really get the gears moving. So, to my question: would I be able to promote my own shop on a WA supported blog along with whatever product it is I’m promoting from, say, Amazon? Or would I have to be an affiliated shop on Amazon first?

Thanks so much!

    Kyle - March 11, 2018

    Hi Kristen.

    Yes you could promote your own shop. The basis of what WA teaches is how to get a website ranked in Google to get free traffic by blogging. Then you can promote whatever you want, its just that affiliate marketing is the easiest for people because you don’t need a store or anything. But since you have a store you can absolutely do it.

    I’m not sure how good of a niche your store is in but if you are able to create content around your niche and there is a market for it then it could work.

Raymond - March 11, 2018

Doing research and trying to educate myself about all of this, and need some clarification: to be paid by promoting products or programs, etc. would I first need to contact the company directly to become one of their ‘affiliates’, or is this done by way of ads that are placed in or around my blog/site and then I’d be paid by the number of visitors who click on those ads?

I think I’ve confused myself and these are two different methods, as I described above? There is so much information about this ‘make money online’ subject that it becomes overwhelming pretty quickly. Sorry for such a beginner question, but just trying to understand some of the basics.

Thank you for your time and assistance.

    Kyle - March 11, 2018

    Hi Raymond.

    Companies have affiliate programs you can sign up for to do this. Its not like you have to contact them and work out some agreement. Everything is already in place.

    With affiliate marketing you don’t get paid for the amount of clicks. You get paid for the amount of buyers you refer. So if someone clicks your link and does not purchase you don’t make anything. You make commissions based on sales.

    There are ways to advertise and get paid per people that click on the ads on your site but Wealthy Affiliate is mostly for affiliate marketing, as the name suggests.

    And don’t be sorry for the questions. Everyone starts somewhere.

Wolf - March 19, 2018

What I don’t get from all this text is this: What am I supposed to sell with the website???

    Kyle - March 20, 2018


    You can sell many different things. For example, Amazon has an affiliate program where you can promote products. They have over 450 million products in the US alone so there are all types of things you can promote. What you end up promoting will be determined by what “niche” you choose for your site.

Jace - March 23, 2018

How do you get traffic to your website?

    Kyle - March 24, 2018

    You write content, such as short posts/articles, and get them ranked in search engines like Google. This is the main traffic generation method they focus on at WA and is how I get about 99% of all my traffic.

John Beekman - March 26, 2018

Would appreciate more info and how one can start with the free program. I have a lot of non profit groups I do legal work for and think might help generate income from their members.

Taylor - April 1, 2018

Hi Kyle,

I hope this finds you well. I actually found your page researching secret scociety of millionaires.

I love your honesty in answering everyones deperate questions. I am sadly no different.

Ive done my research against the BBB and a few other sources about WA and Im willing to try just about anything at the moment.

Please dont laugh, but do you think $500+ is obtainable within the first month? If not the first couple as long as the work and effore is put into it?

Have a lovely day!

    Kyle - April 2, 2018

    Hi Taylor,

    Unfortunately there is no way you, or anyone, will make $500 the first month with this. That is just the reality. I wish I could say that it could but that would be a lie.

    Best of luck.

Mark - April 5, 2018

Hi Kyle,

It looks as though you put quite a bit of effort into promoting Wealthy Affiliate itself. Is that part of your revenue stream?

    Kyle - April 5, 2018

    Hi Mark. Yes it is. You can promote just about any product online and WA is one of them that I promote.

James Jackson - April 7, 2018

I really need to talk to you, plessr

    Kyle - April 8, 2018

    Ok, you can just reply to this comment James.

jcharles - April 8, 2018

Hi Kyle, just a note of admiration and appreciation for such an honest and straight-forward presentation. I am seriously contemplating coming aboard (I am a retired airline employee – 2002) but am presently working for my wife as an Administrative Assistant in her Mental Health Counseling Center, five days a week. We were also the victims of last year’s Harvey (DAM) flooding here in Kingwood, Tx. and with no flood insurance, are recovering (rebuilding)our losses. WA appears to be exactly what I’m looking for to help offset the two to three year period needed to put our humpty-dumpty home together again. Will be in touch and God bless.

Mba O. C - April 8, 2018

Sadly as it may, most people stand illegitimate to gain from this honest and lucrative outpour. It will be spreading a scandal if one stands to course his/her nation………majority of us suffer for what we know not of.
My plea to you kyle,
Already you know am screened out in participating in the free online package…………….how then can I register in the premium package, hoping iT offer same leverage as preached by you. I don’t mind even if i had to borrow, with faith that through WA, GOD WILL ANSWER MY PRAYERS
