Where Are You in Your Journey to Success?

If you are in either of these two groups, you need to read this article.

Better still, act on it.

1. You are already a trial member of Wealthy Affiliate. You've worked through a couple of lessons and have got help from other members in Live Chat. You're ready to get serious about your online business and plan on upgrading to Premium or even Premium Plus.

2. You want the freedom and financial reward that comes with running a successful online business. You're willing to put in the work, but you don't know where to start. Maybe you've heard of Wealthy Affiliate. Maybe not. But it's what you've been looking for.

What Does Wealthy Affiliate Offer?

This is a question I come across time and time again.

So let's simplify the answer.

Basically, there are 3 things if you are a Premium member:

1. Training. There are 2 sets of training. One is the Online Entrepreneur Certification and comprises 50 video-based lessons, spread over 5 courses. The other is the Affiliate Bootcamp, 70 video based lessons, spread over 7 courses. Each lesson includes practical exercises to ensure that you've understood it.

2. Live Help. For a lot of new members, this is the most valuable resource of all. Whenever they don't understand something, or just need help with building their business, they can ask the WA community and they are sure to get an answer. Sometimes several and often immediately. Because WA is a global community, there are members in Live Chat 24/7. This is in addition to Wealthy Affiliate's technical support team (also available 24/7).

3. Domain and Website Hosting. The 2 most technical aspects of starting an online business, that many newbies get stuck on, are domain name registration and website hosting. Wealthy Affiliate overcome these hurdles for you. You can register your domain name through WA and host up to 10 websites at no extra cost. Building a new website is accomplished with 1 button click!

But What Does It Cost?

Wealthy Affiliate isn't a cost, it's an investment in your future.

And compared to any offline business, it's dirt cheap.

You could literally spend tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars starting up and equipping a coffee shop, for instance and in the end find that you've bought yourself a 10 or 12 hour a day job.

Whereas an online business has trivial start-up costs. You get everything offered by Wealthy Affiliate Premium for just $49 a month.

Or you can save by paying for an annual Premium membership for just $499 (a saving of $89 over the monthly membership). But more important than the saving is the commitment you’ll be making to your success.

Sure, you'll have to put in the time at first to learn everything you need to know and you'll spend time building your website and adding content to it.

But, if you do it right, what you are heading towards is passive income. Say what?

Passive Income

Passive income is money that comes in while you're not working for it.

Even while you're asleep.

And it's the ultimate goal of any online business.

Can you learn how to do that at Wealthy Affiliate?


The WA lessons will teach you how to write keyword rich articles that will bring visitors to your website 24/7. Visitors who are interested in what you have to say and who are potential customers for the products you are promoting.

Every sale you make will result in a commission being paid into your account.

Some may be small, but others may be substantial. Hundreds and even thousands of dollars substantial.

But the thing is that it happens automatically. There is no interaction required between you and the customer.

That's passive income.

Should You Join Wealthy Affiliate as a Premium Member?

Well, yes and no. It depends.

Are you:

  • An action taker who's determined to make a success of this venture?
  • Someone who understands that building a long-term business takes some time?
  • A person willing to learn from others who are successful?

If so, the answer is a resounding YES. Take advantage of all that Wealthy Affiliate offers and dream of where you could be in 12 months’ time. Just DO IT!

This is some of what you are getting:

  • All the Core Training. This Is a Total of 120 Video Based Lessons.
  • Other Expert Classes.
  • Managed WordPress Hosting for up to10 Websites
  • Unlimited Jaaxy Lite Searches
  • Personal Mentorship & Coaching from Kyle & Carson
  • Unlimited Communication & Help Within WA
  • Kyle's Bonus “Success in 2022” Class
  • Jay’s Bonus “Research to Profits, 14 Day Case Study”

It's impossible to put a value on this. Your future earnings from the knowledge you gain will be totally up to you.

So log in to your Wealthy Affiliate account if you have one, click on your avatar then Account Settings and Subscriptions, where you'll be able to make a start on your successful Affiliate Marketing business.

Otherwise, click on the Wealthy Affiliate link in this article and take advantage of this offer as a new member.

A good overview of the WA platform. The training and support is fantastic. The only thing I would add is while, I believe, premium is a must..premium plus should only be taken on until the training for premium is finished.
You can get caught up in so much training it doesn’t necessarily get absorbed into the brain cells. Only my opinion. I know a lot go straight to plus…but for me I would rather lay the foundations first.

I totally agree, Stephen. While I occasionally see a P+ training I'd be interested in, It's not a time commitment I'm prepared to make. Not yet, at least.

I like this piece a lot Phil and as a newbie, it resonates. I think I’m just now figuring it all out and how to be successful here with WA; now I just need to stay the course and keep on track training wise.

I need to put a pair of blinders on…LOL.


That's very true, Mike. Put the blinkers on, work through the training one lesson at a time and focus on your website and its content.

That’s it in a nutshell Phil!

Thank you


You're welcome, Mike. Too many people lose sight of the simplicity.

Thanks, Phil... As you asked... my journey to success going well! I've made a 6-page website ... That, I think looks and feels great, BUT... I think it's very slow. I'm about to launch.. so need to tune up!? Any idea's on what will help a slow website! I did a study of the

It sounds like you are proceeding well on your journey, Guy.

There are many factors that affect website speed. I'm lucky in that the suite of templates and plugins that I use has a feature that scans the website and addresses all the issues that would otherwise slow it down.

But here are some articles on WA that may help: I hope these help.

Awesome write - up, Phil
I would definitely sign up again, if I hadn't :)
So many positive resources and assistance to help throughout my journey

Absolutely, Simone. Sometimes I think we are so close to the action we can only see the trees. I wanted to move out a bit and help newcomers to see the woods.

I know what you mean. Everything is all focused on make money now or else quit

No one is willing to make a long term investment in their own future

I hope they will start seeing clearly now from your wonderful post

This is a very good overview of WA. I wish I had seen it when I was looking around for a progrsm.

Thanks, Jim. I was hoping it would be useful to both free members and those who are just considering getting into affiliate marketing with Wealthy Affiliate.
