Do I personally need to promote Wealthy Affiliate to any friends or family to make money?

No. Wealthy Affiliate is a training community that helps people start their own online businesses from scratch. They offer an affiliate option for people that are interested in sharing WA with others but it is not necessary. There are thousands of members in Wealthy Affiliate that are making full time income from the websites that they made while being members of WA, and most have no intention to promote WA at all.

Can I cancel whenever I want?

You can cancel whenever you want. You are auto-billed monthly on the day that you first sign up to Premium, each month. You can cancel at any time. However, if you cancel, you have only 30 days to move your site to another host (if you buy your own domain) before they delete your site. Also, you cannot return back to the free version and keep all of your work. You will need to start over from scratch. Keep in mind, you will still be in the system as a free member just in case you decide to upgrade again in the future.

How much time do I have to put into this?

That depends on you. I will say this… The more time you put into the training and the guides that Wealthy Affiliate has to offer, the faster you will start to see success. You can make a website in less than 30 minutes, but it takes time to find the right content and also more time to research which products you want to promote on your website. I’d say that as a minimum you’d want to set aside at least 5-7 hours a week to work on your future. That’s an hour a day, some can do more and some can only do less. Up to you.

Is Wealthy Affiliate a scam?

Wealthy Affiliate is in no way, shape or form a scam. It has been in service since 2005 and has a community of over 100,000 people. If it was a scam, it would’ve been taken down by the FTC a long time ago.

How will I get paid & when will I get paid?

Once you join WA, they’ll teach you how to build your own websites and the steps you need to take in order to start profiting off of them. It is not a get rich quick type of thing. It takes time and effort. Some members see their first payments within the first 3 months, while for others it could be longer. It depends on you and how serious you are.

How much does it cost to join?

It is free to join. With the free membership, you’ll have access to the some of the trainings, tools, and services as well as 2 free websites that you can create. (The free membership allows you to see if it is something you want to invest your time and energy into. You can remain a free member as long as you want.) If you decide to go premium, there are monthly or yearly rates, as you prefer: $47 per month ($1.56 per day) or $359 per year ($0.98 per day).
