Okay I admit it.. I have actually been looking forward to writing this review, as Wealthy Affiliate University is very dear to my heart, and it have changed my life significantly during the last couple of years.. Why? Well I will explain that in more detail later, but first a little background info on Wealthy Affiliate.
The story behind Wealthy Affiliate
It all started back in September 2005, where Kyle and Carson started wealthyaffiliate.com with the ambition of helping others succeed online. They both have more than 25 years of combined experience with internet marketing, and what started as a simple keyword list, quickly grew to become a comprehensive community driven by thousands upon thousands of active users. All of them more than willing to help newbies in affiliate marketing, no matter the background or story. Today the site consists of many tools, tutorials, blogs, videos, hosting and many other resources unparalleled in the industry
First glance at Wealthy Affiliate
When you first enter the community you will quickly see how active the community is. There is always like minded people on the chat and a constant feed of success stories, tips, ideas, help requests or just people writing what is on their mind. This is the “Activity Dashboard” that gives you the overview you need. If you want more specific views, it is possible to filter the feed based on your requirements.
Certified In Affiliate Marketing
Wouldn’t it be cool, to be just that? Well Wealthy Affiliate actually has 2 paths for their training.
- The first is “Certification“, which is a 5 level course with a ton of materials and lots of videos explaining you exactly how to get started, how to drive traffic, how to monetize, social engagement and creating killer content. Within each of these topics there are several tasks you must complete in order to make it to the next level (even though you can skip ahead, I would strongly advise you to do all tasks and stick to the program). Taking action on these tasks WILL lead to success, just as it did to me!
- The seconds is the “Affiliate Bootcamp“, which just as the certification has a ton of materials. However, the focus of the boot camp is to prepare you for promoting their own affiliate program.
Immediately after registering for free, I was blown away by the massive and instant help I got from the other community members
A life changing experience
Now as I promised in the beginning of this review I would tell you why I am so thrilled about Wealthy Affiliate and why the community changed my life.
I joined back in November 2013 after beeing in the online industry for many years, but never promoting products without having to have physical inventory. You can read more about that story here: About Me
Immediately after registering for free, I was blown away by the massive and instant help I got from the other community members, as well as the high quality of the content inside. I knew that this was a place I could learn a lot from and I became premium member within the first day. A decision I have never regretted!
Initially I followed the certification program, and within the first 4 months I had made my first $5.000 promoting an online shop platform. After this successfull start I started initiated the affiliate boot camp, as Wealthy affiliate actually has a VERY attractive affiliate program. Best of all is that you can still promote and earn commission as a free member. The commissions per member are currently $23.50 month or $175.00 yearly. As a free member you get half of that. To day, I have earned the cost of membership back more than 100 times!
How much can you earn promoting Wealthy Affiliate?
Here are some calculated examples of how much you can earn. And trust me that the example 1 is not that hard to achieve. Just imagine $1458.00 from passive income every month. What would you do with that kind of money, and wouldn’t it motivate you to continue your efforts even more?
SiteRubix Hosting platform – Best in class
Even as a free member you have the possiblity to create a website for free on their own hosting service SiteRubix.
When creating a new site you have the following options:
If you create on a free domain, your site will be on the .siterubix.com domain. That is yoursite.siterubix.com. This is completely free and you can have up to 2 sites.
As a premium member you have the option to create the site on your own domain. And if you dont have a domain you can register one, by clicking “Register a domain”. It will get you up and running with your very own domain within minutes. I have never in my career seen such a service and performance! You might think that a free website and or hosting via the community will be slow as they have saved money on ressources. But they have invested massive on hardware and have state of the art mechanisms for making your site perform the best it can. For example this blog is hosted via siterubix, and to show how great this hosting is, then check out the site on google PageSpeed Insights
If you dont know the Google PageSpeed, then it is one of the most important parameters when Google decides which pages should rank high in their search engine. Normally a score of 70+ is pretty good. Any SiteSpeed over 80 is excellent, and anything that hits the 90s is almost unheard of.
Just to put this into perspective then check this out
So what is the cost?
As mentioned earlier, the membership is completely free! Even though there are plethora of reasons for going premium which is Initial $19 offer, $49/mth or $359/year, there is no obligations and people in the community are more than happy to help you out no matter what membership you have. So if you just want some input for your blogging idea or other inputs, you are more than welcome to join for free and ask away.
