Wealthy Affiliate Has Come a Long Way.

Last Update: April 16, 2018

Let's take a step back 12.5 years. Carson and I, independently successful within the affiliate marketing space, decided to launch Wealthy Affiliate, at the time a keyword list website.

At the time, we knew the value of keywords to our businesses. They are the fundamental starting point of every search, and if we could help people understand which keywords were good (and handpick some awesome ones for them), we knew we could help people be successful.

Each and every month we would deliver a list of keywords targeting a brand new niche/segment. It was a simple service, simple platform, and the price was affordable. It was $29.99 per month, or $359.88 per year respective.

Well, it worked. People succeeded. People loved Wealthy Affiliate. People started to recommend our service.

Then something interesting happened.

As I am sitting here recording new videos for our new UX at Wealthy Affiliate, it brought back memories to the days when Wealthy Affiliate was a simple keyword list website.

Within the new UX, under Research (which is essentially all the Jaaxy features) we have a Niche Keyword List section. See below.


This is what WA was 13 years ago.

We didn't offer anything to do with websites. No hosting. No personal support. No way to communicate or engage. No training platform. No live classes. No research/keyword tools. No coaching. No live chat.

We are a keyword list membership site. Nothing more.

That is precisely what Wealthy Affiliate members were paying $359.88 per year for, and were incredibly happy with it. Our members at the time felt they are getting a great deal.

Fast forward 13 years...

And this is one TINY component of what is offered here. I would say that the Niche Keyword List platform is 1/1000th of the membership offering, yet one thing has remained consistent... our pricing. Our premium membership is actually now LESS than it was, at $359.00 per year!

Crazy right?!

This also reminded me how far we have come, how much we have evolved, and truly how many lives have been positively impacted by WA over the course of the last 13 years (almost).

It also excites me how much we have left to accomplish, although we are synonymous in the affiliate marketing world as THE place to create, grow, and manage an affiliate marketing business, we feel as though we are just getting started.

We are weeks away from our new UX (User Experience) at WA.

This is going to be an innovative new foundation for you to run you business(es) from, and it is going to lead to many new technological advancements, community improvements, streamline all levels of support, and subsequently more success.

We care about you. We care about you business. We care about you success.

Let the exciting times roll on!

I am excited to see the new interface. Wealthy Affiliate has always be evolving since I joined in 2015. I remembered when I started we need to purchase our domain name from other vendor but now it is easily available within WA platform.
Site Content is also newly launched allowing us to create content easily with plenty of images to use.
Keyword research tool - Jaaxy is being included into WA platform as well.
I see more features and tools coming into and allowing us to manage and increase our Online business easily and effectively.
I like it and will encourage more people to join WA platform.

And this is why I am here!

Because bottom line, nothing else online like this exists.
Pure gratitude to yourself and Carson for all that you offer here, it is just mind boggling. And if others stick around for long enough they will realise it too. Or.... go off, waste money, time and realise that WA is truly the bomb to build a business.

Once again, thank you guys!

LONG LIVE WEALTHY AFFILIATE!! So true are these statements of yours, for that is what I believe too.! This IS THE REAL DEAL! Real success often takes time after all, we have so many things in life to tend to that it can take quite an effort to make time for wealthy affiliate! It is well worth it though! Keep on going and I am going to do the same. May your success be for years to come! Jim

It sounds great. I can't wait. And yes, you guys have come so far and made so many great improvements. I love this place now.
In the early years I found it too much of a challenge to navigate - now it is a piece of cake.
So many membership sites come up, seem good and then dwindle to nothing new.
Thank You for sticking with it, staying current and working so diligently and letting me come back (several times I might add - I do always eventually return home - like the prodigal son/daughter)

I agree. We have seen it all in our last 13 years operating within this industry. There are few, if any, companies still around and the ones that do exist haven't changed much in the last 13 years.

We continue to evolve our platform and services on almost a daily basis and we are always working hard behind the scenes to evolve WA.

We don't get excited about the past and what we have accomplished, we are driven by the future and what that holds and what we have left to accomplish.

Thanks to you, Kyle, Carson and the rest of the WA stuff behind the scenes. Your blog post has a very strong message, especially for people like me. I'm just reading that every business starts with an idea, and keeps growing and growing over the years.

If the vision is there and you are prepared to work for it and won´t stop working when there are setbacks, then many things are possible. I try to learn daily and would like to thank you again for your help.

I'm looking forward to the new UX - it will probably be time to update the WA Review then ;)

I remember stumbling upon WA 10 years ago when there was some kind of 8 Week Action Plan, no videos just written content.

You guys have come a long way. Thank you for your dedication to helping the little guy and gal succeed online. WA is worth every penny and more. :-)

Yeah, it was the 30 day success plan I think, and then we moved to an action plan, then we moved to core training, Getting Started, OEC, etc.

The evolution of training alone has been significant and we certainly have some amazing stuff coming in that respect!

Other languages is something that we may take on in the future, at this point though it is something that we are going to leave aside for the moment.

We realize how huge other audiences are in other languages, but it will take an incredible amount of resourcing to do right. Not off the table, just not near term.

What an amazing platform you have here, it shouldn't be easy to create something like WA.

What I really appreciate even I've joined only for 4 months, it's you keep updating it.

I'm pretty sure WA has a lot more to offer in the near future, It's why I'm sure I will be a WA member for many many years to come.

Not only you teach us how to build an affiliate marketing business, you also offer us the opportunity to make a solid income by promoting your platform. This is brilliant!

I'm excited to see the new UX.

Down the memory lane, an empire has been built. The Empire of Knowledge! Thanks to you and Carson . I feel the success of WA is because of its positive foundation of HELP. Help to the Community, Help to the Dreamers, Help to the Action Takers and Help to the newbies like me. I hope very soon the basic membership will be free in my country as well - like rest of the world. All the Best.

I would agree with you. A helpful community is one that you want to be part of, take part in, and one where you feel as though you can learn and incubate your knowledge.

I completely forgot about the keyword lists! I think I still own one domain based on the info on those lists. Had more, but I think I missed out on renewals due to lack of funds at the time. It's amazing how time has flown by, and how much things have changed. Can't wait to see the new interface!

Thank for the stroll down memory lane Kyle. Who would have figured a simple list of keywords would turn into what Wealthy Affiliate is today. If I recall reading somewhere that one of the traits of successful people is the empathy they show towards people, especially clients/customers. Looking forward to the new User Experience.

We will always have empathy, we will always remain humble. We don't forget where we came from and we certainly don't forget our starting points online (when we were complete newbies).

If only I had something like WA when I started out 16 years ago, it would have sped up my journey to success drastically.

I was just thinking the other day how quiet everything had been recent.

Since the excellent Jaxxy integration we have had very few updates and improvements. Have been here a while I figured this meant only one thing.

A big update was imminent. I knew you hadn't been slacking, it's just not your style. I knew there had to be something big in the offing, and clearly, a whole new UI is that big update.

Can't wait to see it as it's not something I felt needed tweaking, it's pretty good. But I am rarely disappointed with WA Updates.

As I have observed previously, WA just grows better, year on year.
I don't know the progress details between 2005 and 2014, which was when I joined, but certainly the last 4 years have been phenominal and I have learned and implemented so much in that time.
This from someone who previously had never really used the Internet professionally; my only real online activity was email correspondence!
I fully appreciate how awesome WA is here in 2018 and look forward with great excitement to further evolution.
Kyle and Carson - and I must here acknowledge the magnificent Support team - I am truly grateful for all the help on a continuing basis and most of all for the fun

Thanks you kindly and although a brief story, it was certainly a flashback from the past. As we were refining some aspects of the new UX, it came to my attention that such a small fragment of WA, used to be the entirety of WA.

That evolution alone excites me for the future of WA. I can with certainty say we have some brilliant stuff already slated for the next few years ahead.

It is amazing how things change, but some things stay the same. I know I do and I am sure everyone else appreciates the fact that you have not changed the price. You and Carson have worked along side us when you could have been the owners and stayed out of sight. I know I appreciate the fact that you are both what I call "working managers", there working with us and beside us. That is one of the reasons you are so successful and people love being in the WA community. I am looking forward to the new experience with UX. Thanks for including us.

We are definitely working managers and we are actively in the trenches with everyone here at WA. In fact, I spend most of my waking hours working with folks here and of course working in the space, and when I am not I am still thinking about it.

When you are passionate about something, you enjoy doing it and we are certainly passionate about WA, the affiliate marketing space, the internet world, and truly helping people achieve things they never thought possible.

Expect brilliance out of us, I can assure you that we will deliver.

Hi Kyle,

I am looking forward to the new UX that you and Carson have devised!

What people paid then does not compare to what they are getting today, and the price has not gone up ... which is a plus for members! There is a lot offered here for us, and I'm glad to be part of it and learning some new things daily.

Honestly, there is still a bit that I am not familiar with (and get frustrated with myself at times) because I want to know everything about all of this ... but it will take time.

Thanks for the post and keeping us informed!

I think there will always be frustrating to a certain degree when learning something new, I still get this but this is just part of the learning process.

Our aim is to remove as many of these as possible and we will continue to do so, but the education itself will naturally create unknowns as everyone does learn differently.

To many, if not most - service, serving, servitude and servant - are dirty words. Many have the misconception about wealth that it is all about not lifting a finger. This notion is a wrong-headed idea and leads to fatality.

Because you and Carson were not afraid to serve and to get down to the work right along with us who are trying to build businesses, even when essentially, you could have a team do this for you, has always shown the integrity you both have, which has made all the difference in the world with this keyword list website gone wildly successful and led to your leadership in the current industry.

Right from the beginning, in 2008, when I first found WA, I knew something was very different about this place and I had no skepticism after having already read some books about entrepreneurship. I was looking squarely at what I was looking for and knew my search was over.

Wealthy Affiliate was already busting out at the seams in growth by the time I found it, and as I have said many times before, is a legacy of our time - one which will be remembered for many years to come into the future.

We should never be afraid or feel it below us to bend down to lower levels if it means serving and being a servant. Those who have the attitude that they are above doing this are those that appear for a time, may get wealthy, but then fizzle out.

The Internet is chuck full of this. Even though success is slow for me, for I am slow myself in many critical ways, I am proud to be a member and seek out only the best of whatever it is I am looking for - and the business platform is no exception.

Wow Daniel, you always have insightful and very interested perspective to share.

First, thanks for the kind words. It has been amazing to get to know you over the years and to see you evolve. I can assure you that we are far from done and that we have lots to accomplish, in fact we currently have no "end game" in site which is always a great thing for members/customers.

We are different and we will continue to be different in a good way. I remember back when we started, probably for our first 5 years in this space our competitors and others in the space continue to push out product after product, while we continue to make our service better and better.

Well here we are 13 years later. 13 years of iterative improvement, innovation and a great deal of failure and advancement of our own personal knowledge as a result (this keeps it fun).

Anyways, thanks for sharing your experience Daniel and I hope when we reveal our new UX next week it delivers on all levels. :)

Wow!! How amazing is that! I just started here at WA not even a week ago with no experience in Affiliate Marketing! Within just one week here I have learned so much, and so fast. The point I’m getting at and what is so amazing is that WA clearly started as a company following a Niche. That niche being keyword search. And over 12 years the AW site has turned into a place that can take an everyday Joe or Jane of the street and turn them into a Marketing Pro. At least I hope so. Lol. I’m definitely not a Pro yet but can clearly see that WA offers more than enough for the price per month/year, to make me successful in the affiliate world. So happy that I was given the opportunity to be a part of this platform, and be amongst the midst of Affiliate Geniuses. Thanks for sharing Kyle. Inspiring is only the beginning.

It is an honor for me to be a member of such a great place.
You, Carson and the rest of your behind the scenes team have given us so much to be thankful for.

I can not wait to get enough knowledge under my belt to start pulling in referrals.
I have never believed in anything online, until I came to the site that landed me here.

When I first started here I was reluctant to write my review as I didn't know enough about this place, although I had a very good feeling,

I still wanted my review to be as honest as I am.
It didn't take me long until I was totally comfortable in writing that review.

Thank you Kyle and Carson for your desire to help others like myself and for making it possible for even the newbiest of noobs to be able to create their online business.

Thank you and I look forward to whatever Wealthy Affiliate has in store for us in the future.

Wishing both of you 13 more years of success and may there be more stories that can only happen in your wildest dreams!

Cheers...Charles

It is always amazing when I hear this story of how WA started and how far it has come! I am amazed at the incredible value we get here and the potential for return on investment is mind boggling! That all depends on how much effort we put in.

Thank you!!!!!!

Thank you both! You guys are true mentors. You started young and have built yourselves into a great success! And not only have you succeeded but you have helped others succeed in the process. To my way of thinking, you can't get any more successful than that. I am honored to be part of this amazing group!

Thank you for all the hard work you do

Kyle, I have to say that in all my years in business I haven't seen the likes of Wealthy Affiliate and the platform you've developed over the past 12 1/2 years. You and Carson deserve a big thanks and a sincere wish for continued success. Collectively, you and Carson changed the lives of countless people who came to WA for a chance, just a chance, to prove to themselves that they can do this. Now, these people are living their lives on their own terms and have you and Carson to thank for it. At the very least, anyone lucky enough to have joined WA and experienced the true meaning of "community" even for a short time, took away from WA priceless knowledge and training not found anywhere else, or at any price. My sincere thanks to you, Carson, and the entire WA community for giving me my "chance".

I will add one word to the many complimentary one's below---"honorable"!. This comes from 2 very disappointing experiences several years ago when I was scammed out of $7,000 because the CEO's of those companies were dishonest.

I am a slow learner but enjoying and learning on every bit of the trip with WA, and looking forward to the new UX! I am sure that it will be an exciting asset for WA and each of us who are one this journey with you!

Thank you and WOW!----to Carson, Kyle and "Little" Jay and the rest of the gang!

We promise to be honest, forthcoming and continue to put the small guy first. We personally haven't changed through all of the years and have remained humble to our roots. Helping people is what got us here, and this very ethos is what is going to drive WA moving forward.

Here is to an exciting journey ahead Keith!

No other thing people and entrepreneurs' desire other than a web host that is stable, secured, and open enough to support websites under its care. This is the mission that invites people to entrust their business to grow with their financial aspirations. I do, that is why I don't surrender even in my financial constraints because I believe I am in good hands.

This time business is survival, business is life.

I've been with WA for 2 years now and still love it. If I ever have a question, I know I'll get an answer here. The support is awesome! I have a successful website now - not necessarily affiliate-driven, but I've learned so much here and able to grow my knowledge into a successful side biz. Love everything you do, Kyle!

I'm a little bit confused . I read not too long ago and article that that said wealthy affiliate is excellent for beginners and intermediate internet marketers . With wealthy affiliate you could build a $10,000 a month income business . But to get to the level of say $50,000 or $100,000 per month you would need more advance training.
I'm talking net revenue not gross sales

You do need more advanced training? If you can get to $10,000, getting to $50,000 is just a natural progression and doing more of what you are already doing.

That is untrue. The environment we provide and that we will continue to provide will offer folks the opportunity to create and manage businesses (or many) of any level online. :)

Team work is our strength driving ability beyond our dreams and building an infection of positive success with honesty in all members at Wealthy Affiliate that is not seen in most of the internet.

Thank you for your time, Tom Short.

Kyle, it's amazing what you've done in just the last 3 to 4 years that I've been here! It feels weird to know that there was a time before SiteContent! What you've done in the last 13 years with WA from its original beginnings of a simple keyword list site to a full blown platform where you can create websites for thriving online businesses is simply breathtaking.

Believe it or not about 6 or 7 years ago, I was actively looking for ways to make money online and I actually did stumble upon Wealthy Affiliate back then, but like a lot of people when I started digging into it, I wanted to make money as quickly as possible and felt that I could not be successful at WA so I just left it alone. Needless to say I did come back a few years later and here I am. While I'm not reaching the financial level I want yet, I am on my way there and have made some revenue here which proves to me this does work if one is willing to put in the time and take action. I'm so glad I came back to WA and have seen all the wonderful changes you've made. I look forward to see what the next 13 years will bring to Wealthy Affiliate! :)
