    Hey there!

    A have a couple of quick questions: Is it possible to make money using the Starter Membership? If for some weird reason the website I build stops working, who do I talk to? Is there some kind of website support on Wealthy Affiliate? How do people actually make money on this program? Are there any additional expenses (upsells)? How long does it take before I start making money?

    These are some of the questions I have. Answering them will help me make a more informed decision. Thanks

      Hello Medu and thank you for sharing your thoughts with us. First of all, there are no additional expenses of any kind. The price is fixed and once you go premium you have full, unlimited access into everything the WA has to offer. So, no upsells.
      Yes, you can make money using the Starter membership. You can create, manage and promote two websites for as long as you like. If you experience any problems with your website there is 24/7 technical support to help you. You can ask for help and advises the most experienced members using the Live chat (Live Support) at any time. You can also contact the owners (Kyle & Carson) directly and they will offer you their help and experience.
      But you have to remember the live support and the direct communication with the starter membership is available the first 7 days.
      Now, as to how long it will take you to make money that also depends on you. You can’t expect to make thousands of dollars from the first month. An online business is similar to an offline. It takes time and you need to be patient and determined in order to succeed.
      Everything you will need to achieve your goals are already there at Wealthy Affiliate.

    Great review! I need help choosing what business to develop. Should i look for one that is in a less competitive field so as to stand out from the crowd? Is there info available that would help find such opportunities? Thanks for an honest, straightforward opportunity!

    • Nikos says:

      Hello Maxie,
      There is always going to be competition. That shouldn’t scare or stop you. It’s just how things are. If there is no competition the chances are that market is not profitable. The most important thing to remember is to choose a niche you are passionate about. Something you enjoy talking about. Perhaps something you already have work experience or you are an expert in. But it must be something you like.

      If you want to find out if a niche is profitable you could use a number of tools. Google Trends for example will tell you how popular a niche really is. You can also type in your search bar “yourniche + affiliate programs” to find out products/services available in that niche. Take a look at your competition and the products they promote.
      Go to Amazon and type your niche or product ideas in their search bar. If there are plenty of products and reviews about them it means your niche is profitable.
      Do a Google search of keywords related to your niche.

      You could also use Google AdWords Keyword Planner to find out the number of searches your main keyword receives per month. It is a free to use tool but you must sign up for AdWords first. Or you could use any keyword tool you like.

      There is also training inside Wealthy Affiliate about how to choose a niche in case you decide to join. Even as a free member you will have access to a certain amount of training lessons. You could take a look at this lesson for example.

    Thank you Nikos for your valuable article and your great advocacy for WA.
    I really appreciate your thoughts.
    From my side, I’m very interested by the training program. How long the training program takes? Does WA deliver a certificate of completion to the participant at the end of the training?
    Thank you in advance for your answer.
    Best regards.

    • Nikos says:

      Hello Jean Claude,
      First of all, thank you for your comment. To answer your first question there is not really a specific time frame. That depends on the individual and the amount of time you have. Everyone has its own way of learning and doing things.

      The training program in WA is basically categorized in 2 courses. The Certification course that teaches you how to create an online business in any niche you want. That consists of 50 lessons and it covers pretty much everything. From content creation, social media marketing, keywords, WordPress tutorials, etc.

      The other course is called Affiliate Bootcamp and its for people who want to create a website in the Online marketing niche and promote WA. The training is pretty similar to the other course but focuses more on that niche. That training consists of 60 lessons.

      Ideally you should do both courses even if you have no interest in that niche or promoting WA. The reason why you should do that is because there are some things in the Affiliate Bootcamp that can be used in any niche.

      Then there are also extra training lessons (not included in the 2 Courses). The owners (mostly Kyle) publishes new posts/training lessons to address certain new developments and trends. There are also webinars (there is a live webinar every Friday) and training from other WA members. There is a lot of training.

      As for your second question there is not really a certification. There are badges but that’s more an internal thing. The answer is no. You don’t get a certification at the end of the training. A successful online business is the best certification you can get. There are WA members who eventually became web designers and work as freelancers building sites for other people. In case that’s the reason you are asking about that. Once you learn and understand how to build a profitable business online you can repeat the process in any niche.

      Hope that answered your questions.

    Is Wealthy Affiliate an affiliate program in itself? In other words, are you provided with an affiliate link and cookies to track others that may be interested in joining Wealthy Affiliate and if so, is there a compensation plan? Are you creating a website or a blog because if your blog is created under their domain you won’t get much ranking with Google. If you already have a website or blog, is Wealthy Affiliate worth the investment?

    • Nikos says:

      Hello Buddy,
      Yes Wealthy Affiliate has an affiliate program that is available to both premium and Starter members. Starter Members earn $11.75 per montly sale and Premium members earn then $23.50. In other words you can promote Wealthy Affiliate without becoming a Premium member yourself.

      Websites using subdomains can also rank. There is no problem there. It might take a bit longer for Google to trust such a site but it will rank in the end. After all, it is all about your content. Most people (including me) prefer to own their domain name because that means you are in control of your website. Subdomains always come with limitations no matter the host.

      Wealthy Affiliate is an affiliate training program and in my opinion is worth the money. You can simply apply the things you wil learn inside WA to your existing site. You can also transfer your site to WA.

      Hope that helps.

    The guys at Wealthy Affiliate are legit. I almost joined several months back but didn’t due to a lack of ideas for a website to create. But folks there were always there offering to help and extend a hand if I were to have needed them in the future. And what was cool about those guys is that they weren’t pushy whatsoever with me about joining. I know that I could be seen as someone that’s posting on their behalf but I’m not. I’m just relaying my experience with them from the past and I KNOW all to well how hard it is to find a good gig to earn some money online and they seemed very promising. I wouldn’t expect overnight results with them but in the long run, you should see sonething positive as long as YOU are putting forth the effort with your website that you develope. Anyway, good luck. Ryan A.

    • Nikos says:

      Hello Ryan,
      I am sure there must be something you like to talk about or something that interests you. There is niche for everything. Take your time and in the end i am sure you will find yours. A good thing with Wealthy Affiliate is that you can remain a free member for as long as you like. You can build 2 free WordPress website on SiteRubix.com (Wealthy Affiliate’s hosting platform) and try things yourself.

      After all affiliate marketing is all about great quality content and offering a good User Experience (UX). If you do that you will make sales.

      Thank you for your comment,

    I live in Turkey and when I tried to join, It says your country is not supported. Why my country is not supported in your website?

    • Nikos says:

      Hello Emre,
      Some countries (9 or 10) don’t have access to the free Starter membership due to previous attempts of fraud and spam. I did’t know Turkey was on that list but if you tried to join for free and it automatically redirected you to the Premium Membership then i guess you can only join as a Premium member. Nothing i can do it’s a company policy.
