Wealthy Affiliate Review (The Short Version)

I’m will try my best to keep this Wealthy Affiliate Review as short as possible while still offering the greatest qualities that come built into the platform. This will be difficult as there is so much offered at WA, and it’s hard to narrow down what the best features to mention will be.

Why am I trying to keep it short and is there a longer, more in depth, version that you could read instead?

Because, time is the most valuable asset, I don’t want to waste it. There are more and more searches being performed on mobile than ever before. This means that many don’t have 30 minutes to stand there and read an extensive, all-inclusive review for anything. So with that in mind, lets get right into it.

If you do have the time, you can Read My Ultimate Wealthy Affiliate Review Here.

This review should take around 6-8 minutes to read.

What is Wealthy Affiliate and How Does It Work?

Wealthy Affiliate is an online education platform that specializes in teaching others how to create their own online business with the affiliate marketing method. WA has a vast amount of resources and over 100k users who all help each other to achieve the same goal, a successful and lasting online business that generates traffic naturally over time.

Generating natural traffic is an important part of the overall success of any business. Paid traffic sources will stop when you stop paying and those tactics will not translate to longevity.

Wealthy Affiliate will teach you the necessary skills if you put in the work and follow the training. It is imperative that you stay consistent and push forward. The WA training will work so long as you work. It is completely reliant on you and your persistence. You will NOT get rich overnight, but instead build a long term passive income stream with the ability to scale out as much as your willing to earn it.

Is Wealthy Affiliate Free?Don't pull that card out yet

Wealthy Affiliate offers several options when sighing up, both free and paid versions.

One of the best features for a beginner at WA, is that you don’t need any financial info. I mean zero to try out the platform for yourself. Simply sign up for your free membership with an email address and create your username. That’s it.

Pretty easy right?

Many other make money online training platforms will have the option to get your money back after a certain time period. Obviously, this requires that you fill in the financial info. And then, if they don’t meet your needs for whatever reason, you must go thru the sometimes laborious process of getting your refund.

No need to worry about this with Wealthy Affiliate. Try before you buy with no obligations.

What Does A Free Membership Get You At WA?

2 Free Websites:

That’s right, Free Membership gives you access to two free WordPress websites that you can create and manage how you see fit. Both hosted thru Wealthy Affiliate’s SiteRubix Platform at no cost to you.

  • Fun Fact: There are over 75 million websites currently using the WordPress platform or around 30% of all websites to date. Plus, there are 55,079 plugins available at the time of this writing. Customizing your site to fit your style has never been easier.

Free Access to 10 Training Lessons:

Man and Women working out

The training received with the free membership is enough to get your site up and running. You could even see profits if your already experienced or resourceful enough to go without the extra education.

  • Affiliate Bootcamp: The bootcamp series is for learning how to promote Wealthy Affiliate and related products/services. This is where I began my training, and I could not be happier with the results. Free members gain access to the first ten lessons of this in depth training, and if you decide to go premium, you gain access to the full 70 lessons from start to finish.

This is one of the best areas to test out the site and see if Wealthy Affiliate is for you or not. If you decide to move forward, you will be going thru a lot of this type of training. Remember, there are no obligations, So Get In There And Give It A Shot.

Limited Access With A Couple Of Bonuses:

WA Free vs Premium Graph

There is no better way to see if the WA platform is for you, than to sign up and give it a try for free.

  • Ask Questions: Get answers from the community or even the owners themselves.
  • Join Live Chat: Offer opinions and request them, whatever suites your fancy. Just keep it civil. (Bonus 1: This is only active for the first 7 days)
  • Visit the Classrooms for Even More In Depth Training: You will have access to only two as a free member. There are many more available for premium members.
  • Affiliate Program: Gain immediate access to the WA affiliate program.
  • 1 on 1 Coaching: (Bonus 2: First seven days only on this one)
  • Discount On Premium Upgrade: If you decide to follow thru with the training and upgrade to a premium membership within the first 7 days, you get the first month for only $19. (Now That’s A Steal)
  • Etc. Etc. Etc.

I could go on and on, but you get the point. You get a lot for free, but you get a lot more as a premium member. If you utilize the WA affiliate status to your advantage, you could very well pay for your premium upgrade with only a few sales.

Premium Membership: Investing in Wealthy Affiliate is an investment in your future. Luckily, you don’t have to break the bank to take that step. Here are the membership options listed below.

  • Free: This one is obvious
  • Paid Monthly: $19 for the first month if upgraded within the first seven days and $49 a month after
  • Paid Half-Yearly: $234 for six months membership ( 20% off bringing the monthly total to $39)
  • Paid Yearly: $359 for the year ( 39% off bringing the monthly total to $29.92) You save $229 with this option

  1. Hello Darren,

    Without any confusion your review is an amazing post. I am a working person. I have a job in a private company. I have to work there in a time boundary. I just depressed about it. I could not get more money as my need. By reading your review I received the information about the great opportunity to online income. I will join in wealthy affiliate business. I just love this platform because of its time freedom and helpful activities. How can I get free membership? Sorry I couldn’t catch it up. 

    Thanks a lot dude 😉. I will waiting for your next posts.

    • Thank You for reading my review.

      I also work a regular day job while still building my online business and skills. The beautiful thing about creating your own online business is, low barrier to entry, and the potential for massive ROI. You don’t need any money to get started with WA, and the business you build here, can potentially replace that day job that is sucking the life out of you. You can choose your schedule, your pay, everything about your business.

      This is how you sign up. Just enter a username, email, and create a password. That’s it. Nothing else required to get started for free.

      To Your Success,


  2. It’s nice to see a shorter review on Wealthy Affiliate.  Especially when it covers all the essential features and beneftis which would motivate someone to join.

    You have given just enough information to raise one’s interest and curiosity enough to want to find out more.  And with the Free Option available it becomes a no-brainer.

    Good job with this review.  Even if it was a little shorter it would have worked because you write in a way which leads from one area of content to the other in a natural flow.  Thanks so much.

    • Thank you, and I am glad that you enjoyed the short version of my review.

      It was challenging to decide what areas I should mention to get the message across most effectively. There is just to much value at Wealthy Affiliate to compress into a short review. Overall, I am happy with the results though, and as you can see, the message has been delivered. You just can’t get this value anywhere else.

      The completely free option is indeed a no-brainer. For anyone looking to get started online, why not try a proven platform that literally has no strings attached. No credit card needed, no obligations, never return if you don’t enjoy it or it doesn’t meet your expectations. This is why Wealthy Affiliate is so beginner friendly, especially for those who can’t afford to invest the money upfront, or aren’t willing to risk it.

      Thank you again for reading and the kind words,

      To Your Success,


  3. Great review! I agree to what you have said. I have been with wealthy affiliate for some time now and I am satisfied with the offers and services. Great platform for beginners to learn from scratch to advance. What I like the most is the wealthy affiliate community. It is a helpful community that uplift each other.

    • Thank you for reading my Wealthy Affiliate review,

      This is the best platform for beginners to learn from scratch and build a business, and their skills, to last a lifetime. The community is always active and helpful 24/7/365. Someone will always be around to help you out if you need it.

      Thanks again

      To Your Success,


  4. Great review. Lots of benefits inside Wealthy Affiliate. Best benefit of all is the no strings-attached “try before you buy” free membership.  If I am not mistaken, the two free website that a free member builds will be theirs for life, but they do not get additional training after 7 days unless they go Premium. Thank you for sharing the awesome value that is found at Wealthy Affiliate.

    • Thank You for reading my review,

      There are a ton of benefits associated with joining Wealthy Affiliate, and I mention far more in my Ultimate Wealthy Affiliate review. The ultimate version is not for lite reading though, so be warned, it is over an hour worth of WA insider knowledge and guidance.

      You are correct regarding the free websites. They will belong to the free members for life and, no, they will not receive further training past two free starter courses (20 lessons), unless they sign up for a premium membership. The free trail is the best option for anyone who is still on the fence about creating an online business, and they would like to try out the WA platform before deciding to pursue it further.

      I was happy to share this review with you, and I am glad that you see the incredible value offered at Wealthy Affiliate.

      To Your Success,
