What is the Wealthy Affiliate Bootcamp about, really?

Last Update: December 30, 2017

I'll be honest, when I first saw the Wealthy Affiliate Bootcamp training I thought it looked like some kind of army bootcamp. So what is Wealthy Affiliate Bootcamp about exactly?

Here's my take on it, feel free to add your own thoughts in the comments below :-)

Let's start with the main differences between the Online Entrepreneur Certification courses and the Affiliate Bootcamp course

I'd say the Certification courses are targeted to beginners looking to start their first niche and Bootcamp is for those looking to promote Wealthy Affiliate.

Both courses guide you through how the process of making money online works, setting up your first affiliate site, building a targeted audience and monetising your content.

But there are a few differences. You can however apply the lessons from either course to your niche website.

Do I recommend newbies take the Wealthy Affiliate Bootcamp course? Yes. But not to promote Wealthy Affiliate...

Honestly it's a hard slog when you're first starting out. Let me show you what I mean...

My first niche site was about church leadership. With between 80 - 100 posts I was making $2,000 per month. In contrast, my earning money online niche site took a lot more work, I had to have over 400 reviews posted to get to the same level of income.

For most this is too much work to put in ahead of seeing results and they will simply quit before reaching the breakthrough point.

I do though recommend beginners go through the Bootcamp training to enhance their skills, especially in the areas of pay per click advetising (PPC) so they can apply it in their own respective niches.

What will you learn in the Wealthy Affiliate Bootcamp training?

The Wealthy Affiliate Bootcamp course has 7 phases in total, with new phases being added over time.

Each level has 10 high quality video training lessons and actionable steps, which means you earn as you learn.

Everything is thought of in this training and each phase builds on the last. Here's a rundown of the phase one.

Overall I absolutely loved the Affiliate Bootcamp and I've probably gone through it 2-3 times now and done very well as a Wealthy Affiliate affiliate as a result.

What do you think? What's your take? Feel free to agree or disagree below! :-)

"With between 80 - 100 posts I was making $2,000 per month. "

That would be pretty awesome. I would be more than happy with $1,500 per month, actually. That would (with the exchange rate) be roughly equivalent to what I was making at my old job. If I could do that, I would write 80 posts withing the next two weeks.

Yeah it's good to go over them again from time to time :-) I've done both courses at least twice by now, some lessons 3 or 4 times!

Hi Simon, great post on Affiliate Bootcamp!

Personally, I quite like it. Not only does it serve as an extra piece of training for people alongside the online entrepreneur certification, but it's great for people who can't think of a niche to base their business on.

While finding a niche isn't meant to be too difficult, and the area of "making money online" has a LOT of competition, I feel that there are STILL some people out there in the community, particularly the very new members, who haven't decided on a niche yet... I believe Affiliate Bootcamp is perfect for this.

Yes, the starter membership ONLY has the first phase of Bootcamp, but it CAN give people some ideas on what they can start their other business on.

Only problem is, like you said, it takes a LOT of work to see something out of it, even MORE so than their own niche business...

Whether people use Affiliate Bootcamp as a way to enhance their skills, or simply to serve as a quick niche for them, is entirely down to them, but nevertheless I'm glad that we have Bootcamp as an extra piece of training.

Hope you had an awesome Christmas, and I wish you a Happy New Year! :)

Yes you raise a great point - it does help for people who have no idea of what niche to go and I'm not saying you can't be successful promoting Wealthy Affiliate because you most definitely can.

My favourite part of the whole Bootcamp training is the last 2 phases which concentrate on PPC - this is by far the best training I have ever come across. I believe this is how Kyle and Carson started out and their expertise really shines!

Thanks Jamie, here's to making 2018 count, your best year yet!

This is well explained.
Well done for your hard work.
I think that is very good for church leadership.
Do you mind sharing your money making niche.
