I’ve been part of the Wealthy Affiliate University community for over 2 years now and I couldn’t have been more happy with the results I’ve seen as an affiliate marketer. When attempting to break into the online space and learn how to build out a revenue generating website there are many challenges that affiliates have to overcome.

Wealthy Affiliate has made it easy to circumvent these obstacles, defeat these challenges, and produce your own quality content that consistently ranks in search enginers and brings in affiliate commission.


Previously, I’ve written reviews about the Wealthy Affiliate platform as a whole and outlined what it offers as a comprehensive affiliate marketing platform.

Aside from the unparalleled domain registration and hosting capabilities associated with Wealthy Affiliate, their 24/7 SiteSupport, keywording tools, and web development tools, Wealthy Affiliate offers its members a wonderful community of sharing and learning.

Their unique training structure allows you to go from essentially zero knowledge of building a website to developing a successful income stream through online sources like affiliate marketing. In order to help you more fully understand what Wealthy Affiliate offers in 2019, I’ve created this comprehensive Wealthy Affiliate University review for 2019.


Training Structure

There are multiple paths that your coursework can take within Wealthy Affiliate. Kyle and Carson (the founders at WA) have built out a great online entrepreneur certification training that covers everything from the very beginnings of your site to advanced techniques that will captivate users and drive lead conversions and sales.

The coursework within the Wealthy Affiliate University is structured seamlessly. You usually will start out reading through your initial course. Within this course will be multiple lessons on unique topics that apply to the larger overall course topic. The themes of the different courses and lessons align with your skill level and what you desire to learn.

After you have read through a lesson, there are videos included that walk you through the same information in real time. These videos are great because they show you exactly how to take the words that you have just read and act on them.

The Wealthy Affiliate team has made it easy to track your progress. Throughout different lessons you will have tasks that you need to complete in order to move on.

Now you aren’t locked into one particular topic, and you don’t have to perform tasks chronologically. However, completing all the tasks within a lesson is helpful for the proper development of your affiliate marketing website.

Once you complete all of the tasks under a particular lesson, you should move to the next lesson within that course. After you complete one course you can then move towards completing that level of certification. There are 5 levels within the certification coursework that you can achieve. 5 being the highest level of certfication.

Rest assured, if you follow the training and act on all of the tasks outlined to you by the Wealthy Affiliate team you will have founded an affiliate marketing machine of a website.

Now that we understand the training structure in general, let’s talk about what you will do to get started with the training.


Getting Started

Of course there are initial steps you have to take to build an online business. Something that I have noticed throughout my experience with the university is Wealthy Affiliate uses great detail when outlining this process.

You can expect a full training on exactly how to register your very own unique domain name. Whether you use the SiteRubix platform associated with a free Wealthy Affiliate account, or you choose your own streamlined unique domain name, Wealthy Affiliate walks you through the steps to set it up in one of their earliest certification courses.

Beyond registering your domain, Kyle walks you through what affiliate marketing is, choosing a niche, setting up your website, understanding the different search engines and the importance of SEO, and the most important piece of all… building content.

An example of what the early lesson offerings look like is included here:

wealthy affiliate university getting startedIf you’d like to see the coursework for yourself, click the graphic above and it will take you to the lessons. You can sign up for free (no credit card required) and this will allow you access to the initial stages of the certification course.

Wealthy Affiliate doesn’t just stop at providing you with the basics. The comprehensive university style structure that teaches you everything you need to know to be successful in the affiliate marketing space continues to educate you with its additional levels of certification courses.

Each course shown above has a very unique end goal, each one teaches you something completely different about affiliate marketing and how to be successful.


Certification Coursework v. Affiliate Bootcamp

The Wealthy Affiliate certification program is a free formal education program for any member that signs up for a free account. If you want to continue your education, and tackle the topic of affiliate marketing specifically, you can do so by becoming a premium member of Wealthy Affiliate and working your way through the Affiliate Bootcamp.

The Affiliate Bootcamp is different than the certification coursework in that it teaches you how to market specifically affiliate programs with high commissions like Wealthy Affiliate. In particular, Kyle breaks down how his sites have been successful marketing the platform, and allows you to emulate that process in order to make your own site just as successful.

The structure of the Affiliate Bootcamp training is very similar to the certification courses offered at Wealthy Affiliate. In addition, many of the earlier topics can overlap to an extent. The Affiliate Bootcamp teaches the same basics needed to build out your website and understand the development process of content but it goes further and continues to teach different lessons that are specific to engaging your audience and converting via affiliate platforms.

The key stand out difference between the Affiliate Bootcamp for premium members has to the discussion surrounding advertisement, designing and converting PPC campaigns, and scaling your unique brand across all platforms and search engines. An example of the later courses that differ vastly from the certification coursework and provide the extra edge you need to be the most successful affiliate possible is shown here:

As you can see, there are over 100 detailed tasks that you need to complete in order to get through the later stages of the bootcamp. If you are interested in what those tasks are and how they specifically will drive you to be more successful, I encourage you to send me a PM within the Wealthy Affiliate platform once you sign up for your free membership.

The fact that you have access to other members of the Wealthy Affiliate community 24 hours a day brings me to the next key point of the review, learning via peers, colleagues, and professionals with years of experience in the affiliate marketing realm.


Education Through Community

The community at Wealthy Affiliate is over 1 million members strong. If you think about it, that is an insane amount of untapped potential and knowledge that you can gain just through signing up for a free account, and asking questions to the community.

wealthy affiliate community

You can utilize the live chat feature within Wealthy Affiliate that is occupied by experts at all hours of the day. In fact, many of the Ambassadors at Wealthy Affiliate receive additional rewards based on how much they help other members of the community.

Combine incentive to help with limitless knowledge from over a million different affiliate marketers and what do you get? Wealthy Affiliate and a clear road to success.

I didn’t realize when I first began my affiliate journey how lucrative this opportunity could be. I was constantly confused with little hiccups trying to build out my site. In addition, I would often come up with unique ideas that I needed to run past other, more experienced affiliates. The community has always been there to help answer all of my questions in a positive and constructive manner.

As you can tell… I’m not shy to ask questions to the community. As you can also tell… I constantly get solid responses.

This is just a sample of the types of questions that I ask to the community. Most often, these questions are answered within minutes if not seconds. Learning via community really adds a new angle to the Wealthy Affiliate University platform that most other platforms don’t offer.

I have been a victim of pyramid schemes and MLMs (like this) that require you to purchase a product before marketing it or receiving commissions, and the one thing that all of these types of endeavors had in common was a lack of education resources or help.

All this information available and that’s not even the extent of what Wealthy Affiliate offers.

Something brand new was released in 2018 as a trial, and has proven to be beyond successful. However, this release was exclusive and dedicated only to those who were proven to work hard on their sites and commit to learning and developing themselves as an affiliate marketer.


Bonus: Specialized Super Affiliate Program for Dedicated and Committed Individuals

Wealthy Affiliate Super Affiliate Training

A huge bonus that I didn’t realize would even come about when I first signed on for Wealthy Affiliate was created last year. Luckily, through my hard work and dedication I was selected as one of the approximate 500 individuals that would have access to an exclusive super affiliate training program.

This training program went beyond the traditional training within Wealthy Affiliate. Month by month it dug deeper into fine tuning your website to be a cash flowing machine. As you followed the steps, you were challenged repeatedly to write more content with longer word count, research more keywords, and execute on your promise to serve the Wealthy Affiliate community.

Not only was this an amazing opportunity to discover more knowledge within the Wealthy Affiliate community curated especially for dedicated individuals… it was an opportunity to give back to the same community that has been responsible for much of my online success.

As a member of the Super Affiliate Training Program I have learned a tremendous amount more about video creation, captivating readers, audiences, and was able to receive consistent feedback on my progress, my site, and learn even more about converting those who visit my site to paying members at Wealthy Affiliate.

Becoming part of this program was hard work, my website needed to be setup to promote the Wealthy Affiliate program, have built out a minimum level of content, and I had to have been working diligently through the coursework already provided to me through my free and Premium Memberships.

I can say that my site has become far more successful over the last year as a direct result of my continued training through the Affiliate Bootcamp (available to Premium Members) and becoming a part of the Super Affiliate Group.


Conclusion

I highly recommend the Wealthy Affiliate University platform, the Certification Courses and Affiliate Bootcamp associated with the platform to anyone seeking to become an online entrepeneur, build a business centered around affiliate marketing, or work from your laptop anywhere in the world.

You truly can build an online income with the right knowledge, dedication, and continued hard work.

If it weren’t for the detailed and comprehensive education provided to me by the Wealthy Affiliate University I would not be able to be writing this review for you today. I also would not be able to call myself a Super Affiliate.

If you are at all interested in learning affiliate marketing for yourself, or have friends and family that might be interested, please head over to the Wealthy Affiliate home page and create your free account.

Once inside, head over to my profile and send me a PM outlining a few of your goals. I will personally do everything in my power to help you reach those goals. Don’t believe me? Give it a shot!

You can learn to be successful at generating revenue online, but it starts with education and hard work. Wealthy Affiliate provides the education… You provide the work ethic.

  1. I really liked your review of Wealthy Affiliate.

    You have done an awesome job of sharing the benefits to others.

    I have been a member for a few months now and I stay a paying member because of the quality of service.

    I originally joined as I wanted to check out the training. I was actually thinking of making my own training platform about starting a website so I wanted to see what others were doing.

    In the end I decided that what Wealthy Affiliate was doing was better than anything I could do, so decided not to proceed with my platform.

    The training is really excellent and even for someone who has been online for about 15 years, I also discovered new stuff.

    The community is like no other community I have ever been part of.

    Some of the members are now personal friends.

    The services are exceptional. Many services that are charged by other platforms are free within WA.

    For me the best part is that I earn from Wealthy Affiliate each month.

    So I am staying!

    Great job

    Tim

    1. Tim, it’s awesome to hear that you are a member of the Wealthy Affiliate platform already. Hopefully you are learning a great deal in those 4 months. Content is king my friend! 

      You obviously have a great deal of experience coming into the community with 15 years under your belt. I’m sure you have a lot of great information to offer up. I wouldn’t give up on training folks completely. As you know, within WA you can create your own trainings and actually receive commission for those who come to the site as a result of said training. 

      I highly suggest you share your knowledge within the community, I would definitely like to pick your brain and see if there is something new that I can apply to my website and my teachings of others. Call me a translator if you will.

      The fact that WA includes so many free add-ons is really a key driving factor in my choice of platform. I came for the training and stay for all the other benefits, community, domain hosting, SiteSupport, publishing platforms, and even live events!

      Much success to you, keep up the good work and thanks for reading.

  2. Incite… This is quite interesting. The way one can easily create a website without the knowledge of coding. It seams as if the coding was done automatically. The  good things that come from technology nowadays. It gave me the idea to create ministry online.  Seams amazingly possible…I can d it and  take leap of faith.

    1. Linda, it really is an interesting word. I like the idea behind causing a bit of a ruckus. It seems that people generally think of wealth as a long, slow game… I’m just here to shake that up and show people that it can be done in a diligent, driven, exciting manner. 

      Technology is awesome. With platforms like WA available to normal people like you and me, anything is possible.

      Congratulations on the online ministry! I wish you the utmost success in your endeavor. Let me know how it turns out and let me know if you need any help with your site and content development. 

      Remember, being discovered is the first step in becoming profitable in any industry.

  3. Thanks for your honest review about Wealthy Affiliate! It’s such a detailed, helpful, comprehensive, engaging, and informative review. Kudos! How I wish I came across this review back in 2007 when the community was established! I’ve been on the lookout for an awesome online business platform like this for years, but couldn’t find one not until I had to go through a lot of scams online. WA had been a wonderful affiliate marketing community to many out there and has helped thousands from all over the world to establish what has been a truly awesome online empire. Thanks for the great work!

    1. Israel, 

      I’m glad I could help with providing you a well developed review of the educational side of Wealthy Affiliate. If only I had known about the platform in 2007 as well, just imagine where we could be today. 

      Unfortunately, the path to WA is usually filled with people getting scammed out of money by MLMs and pyramid style schemes. Although many of these are illegal and often end up in some sort of litigation situation it seems that we still fall victim to them. I’m glad that I have learned my lesson and I think that a major factor in learning that lesson was becoming a member of a genuine community that is here to help folks learn how to be successful online. 

      Great to be part of your network my friend! Let me know if you have any questions.

  4. wow ! i absolutely love your website. As a user of wealthy affiliate i am happy to see the positive review of another user because i know for a fact that it works. This website is helpful to others in showing them how wealthy affiliate works and the benefits that it can bring to anyone who is seeking to be an online entrepreneur and earn money constantly.   

    1. Jamiro, thanks for the kind words about my site!

      I aim to provide the best information in the most straight forward fashion for anyone interested in learning about building wealth. Whether that comes via outside investments or it comes from affiliate marketing and online entrepreneurship, you are in the right place to discover all the information that you may need!

      Glad to hear you are also earning an income online. Keep up the good work!

      -Dalton

  5. A wonderful article and review of the Wealthy Affiliate platform. I went through each section and followed easily your description, and have to say that the features and benefits of being a Wealthy Affiliate member just get better and better!

    I have been with them for almost 4 years now, and although my reach in the online market has grown over those years, largely my successes can be attributed to lessons learned as a member of Wealthy Affiliate, so I would never consider leaving the platform. 

    It is ideal for the person just getting started, but over time, as you become familiar with how to do the online business, you will have the tools such as keyword research (Jaaxy), a reciprocal comment section, a content checker (for spelling and for duplicate content), the training you mention, etc.

    Not only all of these things, the hosting that you get free as a member has great value as well. I have a total of 4 other hosting accounts for my e-commerce shops, and I pay more for one hosting account than I do for the entire year membership (and have 5 websites hosted through SiteRubix).

    Your review provides any person looking at the Wealthy Affiliate of 2019 a great overview of what they have in store for themselves. Add to this the free trial requiring no credit card, and it becomes a no-brainer for someone seeking to try it out for themselves.

    Good job and best of luck with your online marketing business in 2019. It sounds like you have a good grasp on what it takes to have success, as will others that try the Wealthy Affiliate platform!  

    1. Dave,

      Thanks for reading the review my friend! I’m glad to hear that you are also a locked in WA member. It really is amazing the tools you have available to you and so many lessons are to be learned. In the early days I remember learning something new every five minutes. Now I at least learn something new every day. I guess the day you stop learning is the day that the platform can offer no more. 

      With the constant updates rolling out from the WA team I don’t see any way that I could stop learning! I did write a recent Jaaxy review as well, it really is my favorite keywording tool and I don’t know how WA gets away with offering the Lite version for free within the platform.

      I guess WA is just in the habit of giving away things for free, like unlimited knowledge!

      Thanks again for offering your insight into the platform and helping out other readers with their decision making process. 

      You’re the man!

      -Dalton 

  6. Dear Dalton,

    You have given a plenty to think about here. This review is so thorough and its going to open many eyes to all sorts of information which they are not aware of!

    To share my own experience…

    I heard about WA in September 2016 and when I did my research I found many good reviews and awesome testimonials. I thought these are all fake but still I continued my research on WA. After seeing some amazing trustworthy proofs I don’t have any other option except joining it.

    However I am very afraid because of the past experience of losing money but I thought of giving it a final try and joined WA on November 2016.

    To cut the long story short…

    I am still with WA and I resigned my day job on November 2017 and since December 2017 I am full-time blogger working from home. Thanks a lot to WA! Some may think this might be a fake testimonial (I am also the same in 2016) whether you believe it or not “Truth remains the same”.

    WA is the very best and genuine training platform I came across online.

    Wishing you much Success!

    Paul

    1. Paul! 

      What an awesome story you have there. Congratulations on making the adjustment to become a full time blogger working from home. That is an absolute huge success. 

      I was also a skeptic when I first learned of WA. It was through multiple MLM scam searches that I actually found a review on WA and joined myself just out of speculation. I can’t say I’ve regretted one bit of it. It seems we joined about the same time. I’m glad you’ve been able to see the same sort of success I have and that you realized back then that the testimonials surrounding WA are absolutely the furthest thing from fabricated.

      Much success to you as well, and keep up the good work. Here’s to a solid 2019!

      -Dalton
