Wealthy Affiliate Overview

This is probably one of the most comprehensive affiliate marketing programs around. It contains everything you need to start affiliate marketing from scratch and ongoing training to take you to a higher level. It starts with some thoughts on how to choose a niche that will suit you. It includes the hosting and building of your own website without having to leave the program or get involved in any other software – you can do it all from Wealthy Affiliate.

There are a series of training courses that take you through the process from day one and each module includes a number of tasks that allow you to practice the theory and ensure you take all the steps in the right order. There are also one off training seminars on a range of subjects to suit you particular requirements at any one time.

It then moves on to how to attract visitors and how to generate income from them. There are two versions to choose from. The standard version which is free but includes everything you need to get started. In theory you can stay at this level and still be successful but the Premium version has a lot more functionality and most people who are serious about making money progress to this.


Website builder and hosting

In the whole of the wealthy affiliate review 2020 this part is the most impressive. This website builder is amazing – it claims to build you a website in 30 seconds. When I used it for the first time it did, in fact, build a raw basic website in under 30 seconds with some basic plugins to activate and a lot of the SEO (Search Engine Optimization) done for you.

With the Standard version two websites are included with one theme but with the premium version you can have up to 50 websites and any number of themes to choose from. Actually you only need one website to start with and it will be some time before you get to the stage of wanting to build another site.

The process takes you through each stage step by step with the opportunity to ask questions online at each stage so there is no excuse not to do it.


Wealthy Affiliate Training – something to suit everyone

The training comes in various strands. There are two basic courses that roughly follow the same track. The Online Entrepreneur Certification is for all students who have chosen a niche that is

NOT affiliate marketing whereas the Affiliate Bootcamp is for students who want to promote affiliate marketing and in particular The Wealthy Affiliate program. So this program can be used by anyone whether, for example, you are promoting dog training courses, weight loss programs or indoor gardening as well as for affiliate marketing itself.

These basic courses have a number of sections relating to the various stages of the training and each section usually has around 10 modules with each module taking under half an hour to go through. At the end of each module there will be a number of tasks that will take varying times to complete. For instance writing a post for you website may take longer than some of the other tasks until you get used to doing it.

In addition to the basic courses there are other forms of training that you can pick and choose. There are Webinars on a regular basis with question and answer sessions. Tutorials are available which you can complete at a time to suit yourself and videos on a whole range of subjects to choose from.


Wealthy Affiliate Support – When you need it

The support on Wealthy Affiliate comes from both the community of users and the program itself. There are various forms of support as follows:

Community Blog – This is an internal blog where all the members can discuss any issue and get feedback. It is very active and busy. It is also easy to use and can provide a whole lot of insight into any number of problems you might come across.

Comments and Questions – In each training module there is the opportunity to ask Wealthy Affiliate experts and questions relating to the preceding training and is a good way of clarifying any concerns or queries you have.

Live Chat – where you can get help and have a discussion about any subject with members of The Wealthy Affiliate community.

Private Messaging – Ask for help from any member who has offered their expertise on a particular subject.

Technical Support – Support from the technical staff at Wealthy Affiliate for issues relating to hosting and your website and any difficulty accessing areas of the program

As you can see there is a wealth of support mechanisms available to all members and they are all generally easy to use – it is just up to new members to access it all.


And There’s More

There are a number of areas I have not mentioned yet which all adds to the completeness of the program

Jaaxy – This is a research tool which helps identify relevant keywords to use in your posts and there is extensive training on how to best use it.

Affiliate Programs – A list of all sorts of affiliate programs that you can join directly from this program. You can usually find something that suits the niche you have chosen.


Final word form

I have found some difficulty in locating any negative aspects of this program. The large number of members might be intimidating to start with but once you get used to the large numbers this is quite reassuring. The monthly cost of $49 is reasonable given all that is included and it’s even cheaper if you can afford to pay annually. Overall I would definitely give this the thumbs up and would recommend it to anyone who is prepared to stick at it, complete the training and persevere.

The Wealthy Affiliate program is ideal for someone looking for a second income or to replace an income you have just lost, especially in the current environment of Covid 19.
