Is Wealthy Affiliate a Good Site to Make Money Online - YES

Last Update: May 03, 2020

In my 5+ years as a member I have seen many newbies ask, is Wealthy Affiliate a good site to make money online? The short answer is yes. If it wasn’t I would not have stayed a member for 5 and a half years as of March 2019.


Again the short answer is yes and I will provide visual proof below. You can find many success stories from members here within the WA community. I personally do not write many of them because I like to stay private on how much I make.

What I have said many times in comments to new members who have asked... how much and how soon you make money at WA relies solely on the individual. But regardless of a member’s work effort, those that work hard and are patient, will experience success.

The problem is twofold. One, there are many scams in the MMO, make money online niche. And two, many people are in too much of a rush to make enough money to be financially wealthy. Many do not realize that it takes hard work and lots of time.

However if you are a member of Wealthy Affiliate, you are in the right place to experience success. The training here really works! And it is great that you can start for free, but you really need to be a premium member to really start earning big.

If you want to earn lots of money online you need to invest a little. Premium membership is only $49.00 per month. You can easily spend more than that going out to eat once a week at a Starbucks or some other fast food joint.


Wealthy Affiliate offers you many ways through their training for you to earn a comfortable income. Though I make money in a few different affiliate programs as well as offering SEO and content writing services, below I will focus solely on the WA affiliate program.

The above image shows how much I have invested in being a member here at WA. Paying your membership yearly will save you a couple of hundred dollars than paying monthly. Because I took advantage of the Black Friday Yearly Membership Sale, I save even more.

Now that I am locked into the price of $299.00 per year, that comes out to roughly $24.92 per month. With everything you get for $49.00 per month, it is well worth it, but for $299.00 per year, that is unheard of in this industry. So far I have spent $1,901.00 as a premium member.

I will not have to spend anymore money until I pay another $299.00 in November of 2019, later this year. But as you can see in the image below, I have earned far more money, about two and a half times as much, in my first 12 months promoting my WA affiliate links.

So far with me investing $1,901.00 into being a very happy paid premium member of WA and I made $5,070.00 in my first 12 months promoting my WA affiliate links starting in February 2015, it is safe to say that Wealthy Affiliate is a good return on investment.

Again, this is only from the amount of money I earned in the WA affiliate program in 2015. This doesn’t include the money I have made since 2016 up until now nor the money I make from my four other affiliate programs and freelance endeavors.


What do you think? Based on what I have shared here in this post and the countless other success stories by other members, there is no doubt that WA is a legitimate opportunity to make money online if the member is willing to invest a little money and some time.

You will find some negative reviews by people online saying that WA is not worth it. Those people are full of...envy that they didn’t try hard enough or wrongly thought that earning money on the internet was fast and easy. Quitters never succeed.

So if you are a free starter member of WA and you are wondering is Wealthy Affiliate a good site to make money online, invest a little to become premium and learn how to earn revenue in various forms of internet marketing.

Being able to make money in affiliate marketing is not hard. Every niche has the potential to make a lot of money for you. If you are not sure of which niche to choose or what is a niche, take a read of this tutorial: What is a Profitable Niche - Tips for Choosing a Niche.

Thanks for those words of encouragement. Wealthy Affiliate has proven that the training which they have is real and can help anyone to have a full-time business working from the privacy of their home.

But as you said it takes a lot of hard work and time along with patience. I would encourage anyone to become a part of this community that is helping so many people to have online success.
