"Wealthy Affiliate is a scam." What did you expect?!
I'm asking the question as yesterday I saw a new Premium Member say that Wealthy Affiliate is a scam and they want a refund.
I have been a Member for around two years so I asked myself what I had expected of Wealthy Affiliate.
Back to 2010
I was in my 2nd year at university studying computer science and looking for online opportunities when I accidentally found Wealthy Affiliate.
It was a choice of Wealthy Affiliate or Affiliorama. I compared both by just reading the sites and I thought Wealthy Affiliate was my best option but there was also a big problem.
To try WA in 2010 you had to pay to join, no free Starters account in that era. I live in El Salvador and the average wage is $250.00 per month so if someone is putting the food on the table is not easy to pay for membership. So I borrowed from my best friend Mario enough for one month and I quickly fell in LOVE with Wealthy Affiliate but after that month unfortunately I could not afford to stay. :(
What happened next?
In 2011 I got a good job at a big computer manufacturer. I knew in that moment I had to rejoin Wealthy Affiliate as I could afford to and because I still wanted to learn something new and have a new income to spend on my family doing something I love to do. Before I paid I even emailed Kyle first to ask about the latest training, tools and support before signing up as a Premium Member for a whole year.
So did Wealthy Affiliate meet my expectations?!
Absolutely I came to Wealthy Affiliate with ZERO knowledge but after two years I know I made the best decision ever to train here.
I have also made great friends who help me, Beverley (BIS), Richard (@RICH.), Steve (IveTriedThat), Dom (DomW), Vicky (veronica.l), Jeff (stadium), "My Queen!" Patty (findingemo), Jackie (JX40), Luke (That Helpful Dude), Gozito (Chris Lee), Toddler (ToddT182), Emma (Ema),Merry (Meredithlonestar), John (TJ Books).... to name just a few. :)
I sometimes see @RICH. write "Wealthy Affiliate is less than a $1 a day, and if you can't make $359 back in a year, you are idle or doing it wrong.... or both." I agree 100% even if US $1 is a lot of money here in El Salvador when you need to pay for 365 days upfront!
Okay now it's your turn. Is Wealthy Affiliate what you expected? I'd love to know what you think!
