Prior to joining WA I tried a lot of different ways to make money at home; surveys, MLMs, work at home jobs, etc. I had some limited success, but none of it felt like a true game changer. I continued to be scammed and over charged for other training that offered a fraction of what WA provided. Needless to say I was jaded by the time I arrived here. But all that changed when I logged in and experienced the community, tools and training. It finally felt like I found the key to success and it wasn’t based on a short term fad or a loophole. I felt like I found a new family that had the same goals as I did. They all wanted me to succeed and were actually willing to help me. It was a stark difference than being on forums where you were made to feel stupid for asking questions. It’s been over a decade since joining WA and it has helped me achieve financial and personal freedom that a job could never provide me. At one point my wife and I were able to quit our jobs, buy our dream home and travel the world with our daughter as a result of the business WA helped me build. But it wasn’t all sweet. At one point I fell for the shiny new object syndrome. So I strayed from what WA taught and suffered a massive lost in my business. I was ready to give up. But the owners Kyle & Carson would have none of that. They encouraged me to push forward and literally helped me do that. As a result, I have a thriving business again. My financial and personal freedoms have been regained. It’s a testament to the WA community. Furthermore, it illustrates the commitment Kyle and Carson have to their members. Although I don’t feel like a member anymore. At this point I view Kyle and Carson as friends that I respect from a personal and business standpoint. Over the decade I’ve seen WA evolve in some wonderful ways. It seems like they’re never satisfied and continue to push the envelope to help members succeed. As long as you’re willing to work hard, then WA can help you achieve your goals. I’m living proof of that. Here’s to another decade of success for all of us! Eddy with a y
I have been in WA since Dec 2016 but I have been procrastinating for several months before I actually really took action this year. There were tons of online courses, community, and platform out there which has caused much distraction. In the end, I had found my clarity and purpose and determined to focus on WA platform to build my business. Wealthy Affiliate is a place where same minded people gather together, sharing the same goals in helping each other to succeed. I have attended lots of paid courses that cost thousands of dollars just for 3 days course, most were more of fine tuning your mindset and teaching you the basic foundation. What attracts me to WA is how the learning course has been well sorted out, easy for beginners, as well as the whole integrated platform for people to be able to start an online business right away. Folks here are really helpful and willing to give professional advice, which is very valuable. Most important WA made it affordable to people who are unable to pay for a huge amount of cost to join the community. You won’t see any kinds of upsell of additional marketing strategy, software or tools from Kyle, Carson or WA, which is very common for other courses. WA has inspired me a lot and it gives me clarity and understanding on the law of attraction. By continuously giving and helping people/community to be successful in their business, it creates a sense of fulfillment, a meaning in life, and purpose. For me, I will stay on WA for as long as WA is around.
Wealthy Affiliate is a “breath of fresh air” so to speak, in a world of scams and slick marketing copy, Wealthy Affiliate is in a league all its own! I call it the “shiny object free zone” where I can pay one price for a Premium membership and get everything I will absolutely ever need to build a legitimate and scalable business online! There are tons of people from all walks of life at different stages in their online business journey that freely share their experience without hesitation! This in itself is a rarity these days and it is quite refreshing. I especially like the personal attention the owners Kyle & Carson give to everyone and anyone who needs it! Again, very refreshing! I knew after a day or two that Wealthy Affiliate was the place for me and that it was definitely the “real deal” and I upgraded to Premium without hesitation! An absolute NO BRAINER! I highly recommend Wealthy Affiliate to anyone that is looking to build a real business online who wants everything they need in one place for one low price. The training is next level and on point! I have learned more in less than two weeks than I learned in years blindly fumbling, trying to build a business on my own. My recommendation? Go for it! You will not regret it.
WA is really a “one-stop shop” for any online business builder or entrepreneur whether you are novice, newbie, or someone with advanced knowledge in online business building. You’ll get everything needed to build a successful online business; the tools, the resources; the support, the visible and responsive owner and community members, the training, the domain registration, the website builder and hosting services, the keyword tools, the affiliate program, SiteContent, SiteSupport, SiteDomain, SiteComments features, the trainings on social media, Google analytics, Google alerts, how to make money and many more that can help you along the way in building your online business.. It’s a very affordable program with no upsells (WA is the only program that has no upsells. Others all have upsells which are their downfalls). Language used in the training all across the WA site can be understood by any one regardless of level of computer knowledge or online marketing, with step by step instructions that are simple and easier for people to build what they have learned along. The useful information available on WA is mind blowing! Overall, what comes across in all of the WA site is the willingness of the owners to make all the WA members successful by constantly updating the trainings etc. and by constantly helping out through updated trainings and help available throughout. Same as most members of WA who always help through their comments and training/blogs etc. I feel like I am part of the whole WA family as I always get help whenever I need and ask. There is a real and strong sense of community within WA that no other similar program has, where everyone is encouraged to succeed in their business endeavors.
I’ve been in the internet marketing space for over three years now, and I have Wealthy Affiliate to thank almost entirely for my success. After graduating from college, I knew I wanted to pursue some sort of business, but I was completely lost as to what that business would be. I never even thought online business was an option until I did some independent research and happened upon WA. From there, it became clear that I could pursue my passion and turn it into an income-generating venture. The entire concept that WA teaches just “clicked” for me immediately. 1) Choose an interest, 2) Build a website, 3) Get rankings and traffic, and ultimately 4) Earn revenue. Choosing an interest was simple. I personally chose my passion for stock trading. Building a website was shockingly simple as well, especially with the step-by-step tutorials WA has to offer. Getting rankings and traffic just came naturally as I continued publishing pages and posts on topics I enjoyed. And once I had a consistent flow of visitors, monetizing was the last step in turning my website into a bonafide business. Before joining WA, I thought about how many people are using the internet all over the world (over 3 billion), how many google searches are happening each day (over 4 billion), and how many YouTube videos are viewed each day (over 5 billion), and knowing that, I couldn’t sign up for the free starter membership quick enough. If you think building your own website requires expert tech skills…you’re wrong. The framework of your website can be built within just a couple minutes. And if you think there’s no more opportunity left online…you’re definitely wrong. I’d even go as far as to say there’s more opportunity than ever before. Overall, the potential online is absolutely incredible. There’s nothing else like it. It’s the largest “storefront” on earth and Wealthy Affiliate provided me with every tool necessary to capitalize on that. The formula for success is insanely simple. All it takes is some hard work and dedication from the individual pursuing it.
10+ years later… Back in 2006, I stumbled on WA at a time when I was desperate to find a way to escape the constraints of the 9-5. I knew that people were making money online…I just didn’t fully understand HOW they were doing it. After numerous failed attempts to come good, joining Wealthy Affiliate was to be my last attempt at making this ‘online thing’ work for me. Wealthy Affiliate was of course very different in 2006. It was in its infancy, yet what stood out for me was the fact that Kyle & Carson really cared about the success of their members. It was refreshingly different back then…and it’s no different today. Over the last decade I have witnessed every incremental change to the Wealthy Affiliate community – and we are probably talking about hundreds if not thousands! All of which have been focused on simplifying the way that people build their online businesses, and achieve success online. Without that level of ongoing education, evolving technology and steadfast support provided by Kyle, Carson and the Wealthy Affiliate community, I would not be writing this today. Wealthy Affiliate transformed me. It turned this ordinary guy with no clear career path into someone who will ALWAYS be able to generate an income online. At Wealthy Affiliate you get ABSOLUTE clarity in every aspect within an otherwise foggy and often confusing ‘online biz’ industry. Thank you for everything, Wealthy Affiliate! Marcus WFHW (Proud WA member since November 2006).
The benefits we get at WA that are included in membership are hard to quantify. I have come to realize lately I simply cannot imagine building my website without WA! I recently had to get help from Site Support. They fixed my problem in one minute! This kind of I.T. support is the best available and is included in the membership for no additional cost. Where else can you get instant support for free? Our websites are backed up daily and we don’t have to worry about being locked out and not getting help. I rely on the amazing community here for encouragement, answers, ideas and valuable comments on my site. I have learned how to make my site profitable and take it in many directions. The training works and you can be successful in millions of different niches! Just pick what you are interested in and go! My favorite part of WA is that it gives me the ability to focus on a cause I truly care about and build a business around that. I have also learned a whole new skillset and have been asked to do search engine optimization for local brick and mortar businesses. No matter what direction you choose to take your business you will have skills to be successful if you implement the training here and engage in the platform. Your choices are limitless here and everything is included in the premium membership. From keyword lists and tools, endless training, platforms to get comments or help you write content, and those to engage with the community, you have endless resources all available 27/7. I have met people around the world. I love WA and believe it is the best resource available for learning to build a website and a business!
Oh, my…where do I begin…? Like many, I was searching; I knew I couldn’t keep scraping by and call it a living. And with the realization that I was NOT a 9 to 5 person, finding a legitimate online business was the route I knew I needed to take. Interestingly enough, it was through reviewing an online real estate business that I stumbled upon Wealthy Affiliate! I like to use the term “newbie” because “ignorant’ just seems too harsh, lol. I knew nothing of affiliate marketing…nothing! SEO…quality content…developing traffic… My response: What’s that? But, regardless of my ignorant/newbie-like state, I felt right at home…and welcomed. It’s hard to accurately describe the connection I felt with people from all over the world, with some connections turning into genuine friendships. Somehow, Kyle and Carson managed to successfully create an environment of “pay it forward”, wherein members don’t just seek help, they give it…and give it in abundance. At each and every bump, hiccup, a moment of doubt or uncertainty, there was a fellow WA member, extending a helping hand, often going beyond the norm, something that still astonishes me to this day. It’s been a little over a year since I joined, and I can honestly say that I am more in love with this community, than I was when I started! Not only have I learned a tremendous amount about how to properly create and develop an online business, but I have also learned so much about myself and did things I never thought possible. Have I reached the financial success that I desire? No, not yet. But I have an unwavering faith that I am in the right business…with the right tools…at the right time…with the right mindset! Success has already happened!
I’ve been a member of Wealthy Affiliate for 10 years and it has been amazing to watch the tools, training and community grow year after year. In parallel, my own online business has grown as a direct result of Wealthy Affiliate. When I got started, I knew very little on how to effectively market products and services online as an affiliate. It was a very intimidating situation and lacked the personal confidence to learn how to get going with it. But with the personal guidance of Kyle, Carson and the WA Community I was able to surpass my own inhibitions of failing and build an online business that makes consistent sales to the point where I no longer needed to work at a job. Wealthy Affiliate is much more beyond internet marketing training and tools. It’s about having successful people that help you along the way, guide you and pick you up when you’ve fallen. I know this extensively because they were right beside me every step of the way – guiding me to success. I am proud to say that the tables are now turned as I’m one of the members helping others succeed by guiding them along their journey to success. A personal thank you to Kyle, Carson for constantly making Wealthy Affiliate a better place year after year and a heartfelt appreciation for changing my life for the better.
In my 20 plus years working on the Internet, I have been involved with a number of online businesses that offers success online but was not able to deliver. Some of these companies had died while others went on to close their doors and open under a different name taking all the money you have invested without notifying you. I have just had it when I came to the conclusion that all online businesses are scams. I went on to search for a legitimate company online for years in order to walk away from my full-time job but was unable to find one up until now. I founded Wealthy Affiliate back in 2013, and I saw something that I have never seen before. They went on to teach me about Internet marketing for free, and how to identify those online scam businesses. My experience here is nothing but excellent, I have never been with a community of people who are so eager to help you succeed. The training is current and the support has surpassed all that I ever come across. The owners of the companies are so involved in the community, that it really wants you to press forward to reach your ultimate goals. I am now making money with this company and building a business that would be around years to come. The only regret that I have, is not laying my eyes on this company years before. I just want to say thank you, Kyle and Carson, for offering me and my family the opportunity to make a lifestyle better for us.
