The Wealthy Affiliate Review For 2021

I have just clicked over a full year at Wealthy Affiliate I can say it has been an interesting year indeed. Looking forward to another year of affiliate marketing within the Wealthy Affiliate platform. Success is just around the corner I can feel it. All the building blocks have been laid.

Pick One Website Is My Number One Tip

I have created three websites maybe should’ve stuck with one website and put all my attention in to one website.  This would be one of my tips to anybody creating a website.

When I first started I was working full time. The employment I was doing did not work for me. I was then able to focus wholly and solely on my websites on an everyday basis.

If I had been working full time I would’ve only been able to handle one website that is for sure. When I first started with wealthy affiliate I was paying my membership monthly.

Black Friday

I have since taken the Black Friday yearly membership option at a reduced rate. It will automatically renew on the next Black Friday at the reduced rate. Nearly half price, hard to resist such a great offer.

At first their is a free 7-day trial with no credit card required. This offer gives you the confidence that Wealthy Affiliate is not a scam as so many of these courses are. Don’t get me wrong it is not easy to start with especially if you have no knowledge of what is affiliate marketing.

Much To learn

There is a huge learning curve to be had. You will never know it all as it continually evolves with the changes in various countries with such things as GDPR (The General Data Protection) and the privacy laws that exist.

So if you are looking for some easy way of making money steer clear of affiliate marketing. Not that their is an easy way of making and if anybody says so such as the Facebook feeds they will be a scam of some sorts no doubt about. You are better of working your normal 9 to 5 jobs and keeping the money for yourself and not some fraudster.

Be Realistic

Affiliate Marketing Chart

Feel free to ask me any questions about affiliate marketing just don’t ask how much money will i make and how quickly it will come to me.

I have posted several reviews on Wealthy Affiliate which i will leave links to for your perusal. To explain the nuts and bolts of affiliate marketing it involves a lot of writing about a topic you are well versed in it sure does help.

Would I recommend affiliate marketing 100%. Obviously I highly recommend Wealthy Affiliate or I would have not taken the yearly membership option with them. Let me go over all the features and benefits of wealthy affiliate.

Membership Choices

The cost of the membership is so low you will not be able to find a better platform for the price. As I said you can try before you buy at no cost to you FREE for 7 Days and best of all you need not give your credit card details to do so.

The next best offer is a reduced first month of $19.00 USD to take the premium member offer. By the way you can stay on the starter membership for as long as you want to.

The starter membership has it limitations with the training and of course the website choices are also limited. Let’s assume you take the great offer of premium membership the monthly cost is only $49.00 USD per month.

On Wealthy Affiliate you’ll be introduced to three types of payment plans to become a premium member. Monthly ($49.00/month), half-yearly ($234.00/half-year) & yearly ($359.00/year). Although the first payment plan is the most popular one.

As it allows you to pay 39% less than what you’d otherwise be paying on a monthly basis. On top of that your account will be grandfathered for a lifetime. Wealthy Affiliate will never be more than it’s current yearly membership price for you. 

Be Transparent

I mention USD as many members are from all over the world such as Australia like me. So the exchange rates comes in to play and fluctuates over time. Trying to be as transparent as much as possible. Making sure their are no surprises for your decision-making processes.


Part of your membership includes the hosting of your website. Hosting is an expensive part of website process. To have hosting with all the features you need to run a successful business can cost a lot more than at wealthy affiliate.

Hosting is secure and blazing fast and come with 24/7 site support to answer any of your website questions or fix if you get yourself in a jam.


There Is one free site for starters and 10 websites for premium members that can be transformed in to a dot com or net, maybe an org if you so wish. Dot com is the most desirable best to remember this fact. You may think 10 websites will I ever need this many.

I will put it to you this way depending on what business you decide to develop such as web designer for local business in your area.

With the 10 websites that means you can control their website for them thus earning money for doing so. This brings me to another feature of Wealthy Affiliate such as the weekly webinar that will train you on such matters as creating your own web design business.

There are many avenues you can take to find a new online career such as freelance writer or selling goods on Amazon for commission and the many other affiliate programs out their for you to take advantage of.

Training Courses


When you first begin the process with Wealthy Affiliate their are two options of training to choose from. Highly recommend you follow the course to the letter and not go on a tangent in another direction. The first course I started with was OEC (Online Entrepreneur Course) suited to those with a niche website such as yoga to develop. Training takes you step by step on setting up your business.

Boot Camp

Second option for training is Boot camp which is suited to promoting the Wealthy Affiliate platform to others. Does have some similar cross over training to OEC it never hurts to revise the training if needed.

As mentioned before best to choose one or the other so not to not overload your mind with too much information. The best way to fail is to give up before you have given it a real hot go.

Don’t Give Up

There are many reasons why people will give up before they have tasted success. They take on too much work (i.e.) to many websites or training programs. You can become disillusioned quite easy and give up. There must be a reason why you have come to a platform such as Wealthy Affiliate. The number one reason can be you have had enough of working the 9 to 5 job. Whatever it maybe just remember to see it through to the end.

100% Guarantee

Get With The Program

I can give you 100% guarantee you won’t make it if you give up. I can talk  about Wealthy Affiliate platform forever.

You and only you need to experience it firsthand to appreciate the complexities of the platform. Then again you may not be suited to running your own business not everyone is.
