Testimonials and Success stories for all WA Members to use!


Hey Everyone

As you know, testimonials and success posts are a key part to any marketing campaign.

I personally am to scared to just drop anyone's testimonial and pic on my site as I never know if it was intended for a specific person's use or open to anyone.

So I am hoping to get the Communities support on the following thread...

For Wealthy Affiliate members and their website use only, please could you help me to grow a collection of honest success stories and testimonials through the comments below for ALL Wealthy Affiliate members to use?

I'll go first if it helps.

btw... It does not have to be as long as mine ;)

"My experience leading up to finding Wealthy Affiliate... I assume was pretty much the same as most people who are determined to build a successful online business.

I spent years drifting from one 'get rich scheme' to the next and when my hard earned money was not being taken from under my nose, I was left with very little to show in return for the mass amounts of effort that I was putting into it.

The problem I had was that 50% of the programs were nothing more than hyped up scams, and the others, though being honest people behind them lacked in either the fundamentals or in overall completeness of the products or training that I was paying for.

Out of frustration in trying to figure out if I was being scammed yet again by another product, I stumbled across a review that all of a sudden was telling me that the product I was looking at was good, BUT that it was NOT recommended by the writer. The writer, a WA member was urging me to look at Wealthy Affiliate first.

... This stumped me completely... He was turning down a high value sale in return for one that would make him pennies in comparison.... I had not seen this before... Why???

Could it be that I had just found the first truly honest person doing a review in all my years of searching?

What did he know that I didn't?

Needless to say, I jumped from his Wealthy Affiliate review straight into the free membership... Another few and far between thing in the online community. A product that was so confident they would let me try it for free.

2 days after joining wealthy affiliate, I couldn't be more excited as I could finally see all of the pieces of a puzzle I had been searching for all those years... So simply falling into place.

It finally made sense... And I was not once told that I ever had to promote WA in order to make money online... I had the choice to build my business on anything I was passionate about.

I went premium...

And BOY! was my mind blown!

All of the information that had been fed to me in impossible dribs and drabs over the years AND HEAPS MORE in one structured and easy to follow, learn while you're applying it program.

No upsells, no advertising, no hype... Just a community of amazing people all with common goals and EVERYONE eager to help one another!

By following the training, a few weeks later I had my first free sign ups.... AND then...

At around the 2.5 month mark for me... It happened!

MY FIRST PAID REFERRAL... And the dude was so excited to tell me that he had signed up through MY referral link that I didn't even know what to say to him in return ;) but I could see the true potential behind Wealth Affiliate at this point...

And from there, the sky was the limit! WASH, RINSE, REPEAT :)

I had done the groundwork, now it was about upkeep and reaping the rewards.

Best part for me about Wealthy Affiliate, I get to promote products that I truly believe in... and people can see this when you are talking about the topic with them. You are passionate about it.

So for anyone reading this who is looking to build an online business, please save yourself the time searching any further... You have found what you have been looking for all this time... And SO much more!

Take it for a free test drive and decide for yourself.

The entire community is here to help you along the way, all you gotta do is ask ;)

Wishing you all of the best and looking forward to hearing from you!

I am recently disabled and was desperately looking for something not only to fill my time but something that I could feel accomplished in doing something productive in each day, and lastly something I could make money with while staying at home.

I also needed something that was extremely flexible because for me everyday is different with the level and placement of my pain. Sometimes I can't follow my own thoughts, some days it hard to sit for a long time and a lot of times I have horrible insomnia.

I had tried out a few of the "work from home" scams out there and then became really critical of all of them because of the lack of money and integrity that some of these websites have. Then I came across Wealthy Affiliates.

I joined free just to take a closer look and before my free week was up I had made my decision to join. I was really amazed at everything they offer. From the training to the community involvement it was amazing. I won't go into all the details because so many of them have been posted by other commenter's here, but I and I would certainly recommend it to anyone looking to create a website and generate income from home.


Hey Debra

I am sorry to hear the challenges you are facing, but must say that I am glad you have found a way forward regardless of what may have been holding you back!

Your websites are impressive to say the least!

Keep up the awesome work and thanks for your input!!

When I came across Wealthy Affiliate I was searching for a way to learn more about working online.

I started working online 4 years ago and had to learn everything on my own. For 4 years I have been trying to figure out everything on my own for the 2 websites I set up. It has been hard to figure out the correct way to go about things.

When you are new to working online it is not easy to figure out what is white hat and what is black hat. I made many mistakes with my websites but slowly built them up and ranked them.

I joined Wealthy Affiliate 3 months ago and I have been completely blown away by what is offered here. I saw immediately the value in this program. The training and support offered here is more than I could have dreamed of. I can see I won't be needing anything more than Wealthy Affiliate to run my online business.

Not just that, but I have built another 2 websites that are already ranking within the short space of 3 months. I have gained more avenues of earning income.

Wealthy Affiliate has completely changed my life in a few short months. I look forward to seeing what the future offers.

Your website's still amaze me Lynne and the amount of content that you are able to put out blows my mind!!

Keep up the awesome work and thank for sharing! :)

Thanks Marc!

After years of toying with scams, considering, reconsidering, becoming within inches of paying hundreds of dollars for blueprints or programs or clubs or whatever, I became super jaded and gave up. I built my own websites but couldn't keep up with all of the changes in how to monetize. I tried Google ads at first, didn't really understand SEO and didn't have a lot of time to figure it out on my own. So I let it go a couple years back. My sites were just sitting there, gathering dust.

Ironically, I found WA on Facebook. On a whim I clicked on it. I can't even remember if it was a paid add or if it was a friends post. I can't even remember what the hook was that made me click. That is how I got here. I signed in June but didn't have enough time to take advantage of the free premium. I work very long hours and it was a busy time.

I kept vowing to check it out in more detail when I had time and three months later, finally looked about the site in more detail. Even with limited access on the free membership, I could see the value. So I went for Premium.

It's only been a couple weeks, but I have about five domains for future ideas and am now working my way through the Bootcamp first to learn how to monetize by promoting WA. I write content in a notebook on the train to work for the other sites I am developing, follow training videos when I have internet connection in cafes on my breaks, and little by little I am regaining hope that I can make this work.

I can't stress enough the amount of valuable information I have obtained in a few short weeks. Jay's Niche webinars have really helped me focus and understand defining my audience.

Beyond having hope and dreams for the future, doing this is just hella fun. I am so glad I clicked on that random link. I hate my company and have tons of student loan debt from putting my son through Uni. I finally have a bit of hope that I can take control of my life.

Good Luck to all!

Hey Suzanne

Thanks for sharing.

The fact that you write you content on the train and post in cafe's is pretty cool... It goes to show that anyone can find the time and do it. You just need to have the will to succeed behind you and you will find the time.

I love what I am doing here as well and all of the new people I meet are so interesting and each and every one of them has taught me something along the way!

Keep up the awesome efforts!

Hey Marc,

I just went "Premium" and I am super excited to see others helped by the resources and community here.

Thanks Marc.

So if you haven't met a person who is completely terrified of scams, you have found one! I have been searching for ways to make money online for years. About a mouth ago I signed up and paid a membership fee to a survey site that provided me with a lengthy list of survey sites. I quickly determined that I didn't need a membership to try the sites. Scam alert went off in my brain and I immediately started searching for reviews on that site. Well I stumbled across a website recommending WA. I read through it and thought this is too good to be true so of course I tried to find a negative review but I had no luck. Everything I found was positive. I thought well its free to try so why not.

2 weeks and 3 days later I have a fully functioning website about a topic that I absolutely enjoy, knowledge surrounding websites that I didn't even know existed and a community that will answer your questions any time of the day or night. I am absolutely thrilled with the progress I have made here. It's been a very positive experience.

P.S I got a full refund from the survey site. :)

Hey Melody

Loved the header on your website and the content is coming along wonderfully!

Keep up the great work!

lol... If they are charging you to participate in surveys, then I would definitely have asked for a refund as well ;)

I joined WA just under a month ago and am absolutely amazed at how much I have learnt.

I have built a fully functioning website on a hobby of mine, which is going great. I can see already that WA is going to be the main ingredient to more financial freedom in the not-too-distant future!

Everyone I have met on Wealthy Affiliate so far have been so helpful, polite and just all-round cool people!

I can finally look forward to the future after struggling through life for so long now!

Thanks so much for this amazing opportunity.


Thank you for leaving your thoughts Hanna!

The future is definitely going to be a fun one with all of the friends you will make here at wealthy Affiliate :)

No problem.
It certainly will be a fun one! WA is freakin' awesome!
