Is Wealthy Affiliate Scam or What? — 24 Comments

  1. What first drove me to Wealthy Affiliate were reviews like this one. My next step was to conduct research on Kyle and Carson and ensure they were legit …they are! The third variable was the fact I could test drive the platform for free without putting as much as a credit card down. That really resonated with me.

    While I had a blog before I never knew the in’s and out’s, especially in terms of SEO, keyword utilization, and especially what site comments and web engagement can do in terms of Google’s search rankings. I joined in October 2018 and shortly thereafter upgraded to Premium

    Now, three niche sites later I’m looking to eventually make a full-time living on the laptop lifestyle with both affiliate sites and even one niche site centered around my own products as I’m also a creator. I can’t thank Wealthy Affiliate enough.

    • I am glad that you are also a Premium member at Wealthy Affiliate Todd. There is no better place that I know where you can learn and earn at the same time, and for free! 

      I have been a Premium as well since just over 2 years and I am now earning a full time income. I have been marketing online since 2001 and never really succeeded until I was invited to join Wealthy Affiliate, which as you said didn’t require to pay anything to get started. In fact, I upgraded to Premium after a special offer and I was already earning far more that the monthly fee.

      So yes, it is the best place to be and it is very newbie friendly too!

      I wish you the very best with you online business Todd.


  2. Hello John, I can definitely agree with you that Wealthy Affiliate is not a scam. When I started out with them 3 month ago I upgraded to premium only after 4 days of being a part of Wealthy Affiliate. I was so hooked to the training and had to go all the way to finish it. I love how the training is always there so if you need to go back to revisit on how to do something it is there. Again another great article you have written about WA:) I think everyone should try it and get out of the corporate america workplace and work for themselves👌😁 


    • Thanks for being such a regular reader of my articles Clarissa, and for your comments. I am glad that you are also a Premium member at Wealthy Affiliate, there is nowhere on the Internet that I know where you can genuinely learn how to create you own full time income from scratch and retire like I did already a couple of years ago.

      So, I wish you the very best and if you have any questions or need any help, please feel free to call on me, okay?

      By the way, just in case, have you read my last two blog posts? I am sure that you will find them interesting, and I look forward to your comments:

      Take care,



  3. The online world is full of scams. People fall as victims to the artful scammers every day. It became hard to distinguish between good and bad. I’m glad that your website provides honest reviews and helps people to chose the right place to start making money online. Wealthy Affiliate is a great starting point because the newbie doesn’t need to deal with many overwhelming technical aspects of building a website. It’s so convenient to have all you need in the same place – hosting, training, website building tools, live support. 
    I agree with your recommendation about WA.

    • Reading your comments Mary, I am assuming that you are also a member at Wealthy Affiliate. I do agree with you that it is really the best place to be if you want to learn how to make a living from home, part time or full time. As you know, it is free to join and learn, and anyone can start earning right from the start.

      There are many success stories at Wealthy Affiliate, shared by people who have joined and learned how to build up their own extremely profitable businesses. WA has the reputation of being very newbie friendly as well as free to join.

      Of course, there are people who are understandably skeptical about affiliate marketing, and wouldn’t join anything even if it was free. For them, I have written a little Internet Marketing course which will give them a clearer view of what Affiliate Marketing is all about, so they can decide for themselves. Here is the free application form ~~> Free Internet Marketing Course.

      Let me know if you need help with your Wealthy Affiliate training Mary, you are welcome at any time. You can find me here ~~> John

      I wish you the very best,


  4. Hi John

    Fantastic review and breakdown of what Wealthy Affiliate is and can do! I started off on the Starter membership as a complete novice to online marketing and still learnt quite a lot on that level. It’s totally worth it to upgrade to premium as the training is invaluable and the support from the community is amazing – everyone so eager to help and your questions literally answered within minutes.

    I love the fact that in your 20 years of online marketing, you have found Wealthy Affiliate to be the most legit. I stumbled upon them through my husband a few years ago and we haven’t looked back since. Our motto is to learn, enjoy and apply!

    Keep up the great work


    • Thanks so much for your comments on Wealthy Affiliate Teresa. I am glad that you are also a Premium Member at Wealthy Affiliate, isn’t it great to be part of such a community, and what an opportunity to earn a full time income? The most interesting thing that not many are talking about is the fact that this program is extremely newbie friendly, no one is left behind and has an equal chance to make a living out of it.

      I look forward to seeing you here again soon Teresa and I wish you the very best. If you have any questions or need any help, please do call on me, okay?


  5. I have to say that before I joined a week ago, I wouldn’t believe these reviews. I think it was the desire to finally start something online, that would give me the freedom of time and location. And the fact, that you can join and start the training completely for free. And the cost of program in case I did decide to sign up was significantly lower than that of others.
    Overall, I am happy I signed up. They give all the tools to succeed, it’s up to each individual to put in the work and use these tools. I have always thought you can succeed at anything, if you put in the work and hours.

Having been earning a living online since 2001, I have just discovered Wealthy Affiliate a couple of years ago, and as I went through all the ins and outs, I decided to join and upgrade to Premium straight after. This was the best decision I made since the beginning of my online career.

      So, Wayne, I can assure you that you have made the right decision as well, and as you say, if you are prepared to work at it and stay focus on your goals, you will succeed, there is no doubt about it.

      Let me know if there is anything that I can do to help, okay?

  7. Whenever I search online for ways to make money on the Internet, all I come across with are reviews or blog posts of the members of Wealthy Affiliate. So, that got me curious about what’s inside this company, what’s inside this online community. But reading through the end of this article, I noticed your mention of not expecting quick results with Wealthy Affiliate. But I’d like to make it fast, get results fast. Is it possible with Wealthy Affiliate? To make money fast?

    • Thanks very much for stopping by to ask your question about Wealthy Affiliate Gomer. Wealthy Affiliate is not a get-rich-quick scam that pops up today to grab your money and vanish into thin air tomorrow Gomer. It is a long term residual income plan with the only way to speed up success is to follow the complete training provided and to put in all the hours you can. But once on the move, it will keep on giving for life.

      So, if you are prepared to put in the hours and follow the training to the letter, you will create the income that you desire for life.

       I wish you the very best for whichever income you are in, or plan to pursue.


  8. Thank you for this article. I am doing Wealthy Affiliate now. It has given me a lot of value in my first month here. It has taught me a lot about making money online so far. Hearing that you’ve been in it since 2017 gives me even more hope because if it has worked for you then it can work for me. Great article. 

    • Thanks for commenting here Chuck and I am glad that you have recently joined Wealthy Affiliate and that you are already seeing results. I am not surprised though.

      I wish you the very best for your new online project. Do let me know if you have any questions or need any help, okay?

  10. Hi John, with so much up side to wealthy Affiliate as recorded in this article, I think it would be a great platform to join in order to laern the basics on how to make money online by being a marketer. Quitting my job and working at my pace has always being a dream for me but I think with this platformz, I might achieve that. Your experience with this platform has also help in awarding more credibility to them and surely, I’ve been more than convinced that I can really make it by joining them the plans are unimaginably cheap considering the benefits attached. Thanks for sharing this review

    • Thanks so much for visiting my website and for taking the time to post your views on Wealthy Affiliate Tracy. As you say, Wealthy Affiliate has it all in terms of helping people to achieve their dreams.

      So, if you are not a member yet, I encourage you to read all about Wealthy Affiliate here and join as a FREE starter member.

      Give me a shout if you have any questions.


  11. Great question and great review! With so many scams out there these days it can be difficult to trust anyone or anything. I agree that Wealthy Affiliate definitely is not a scam. Quite the contrary as it is one of the best platforms and communities out there. Though the free product can be great to test out, the premium option is really worth it. Training and support are both top-notch. Readers should definitely follow the link to see what it’s all about, well done.

    • Thanks very much for your views on Wealthy Affiliate. Am I right to assume that you are already a member of Wealthy Affiliate, and most likely a Premium member?

      As you say, it is well worth give the free membership a try as there is no time limit on remaining, then decide whether to upgrade for the Premium level or not. Most people who join as a Starter member (the free trial) upgrade within the month. This shows how great the program is.

      I wish you all the best for your online ventures.



  12. Hi, John.
    Thanks for the straight review of Wealthy Affiliate.
    I agree with you that this system is not a scam and I am saying it with confidence and without any marketing pitch. After two years as a Premium Member I am running my three niche sites, all with the result of training by Wealthy Affiliate. I love to write and my passion is turning into a success.
    Warm Regards,
    Gaurav Gaur
