To me, support at Wealthy Affiliate is awesome. I don’t think there is any places that offer the same support. It doesn’t matter if you are a newbie or an experienced person, there’s always help around when you ASK!

Each time I log on to Wealthy Affiliate, I see great posts and training created by members to share with the community. There is always so much to learn, to share and help each other to succeed.

It has all the tools + training you need to get started and actually succeed.

What I love about Wealthy Affiliate is the strong support from the entire community. The wealth of knowledge, and everyone’s not afraid to share. That’s what really hooked me.

  8. Christine, Your post is very useful. Reviews like yours don’t usually have the detail that you’ve provided to your readers, here–whether it’s a review of Wealthy Affiliate or of other similar programs. I appreciate how you’ve outlined the differences in cost and available services for the starter versus the premium packages. It’s also good to know about what’s available (or not) overseas. I have some non-U.S. connections that I may want to share WA with. Thanks for your post. I look forward to reading more from you, in the future!

    • Hi Kevin,

  10. Thank you for breaking down exactly what is included in the Wealthy Affiliate package. I have seen so many reviews that are all positive, but most of them give very little detail about what you will find once you sign up. Committing to the free trial was the best thing that I ever did for my home-based business. I have yet to find a more thorough system for learning affiliate marketing. Going through the training and participating with the large member base gives me confidence as I start to build my websites. I don’t know that I would have done it without that support!

    • Hi Theresa,

      Thanks for sharing your experiences using Wealthy Affiliate system.

      I’m glad that Wealthy Affiliate training helped you in your online business.

      I wish you continued success in building your websites and your online business 🙂


  11. Hi Christine

    A very thorough review of Wealthy Affiliate, they really do provide so much at such a bargain price when you compare them to other online training programs. I really like the Jaaxy keyword research tool, I cant believe it comes free with the system and their hosting is top shelf, I personally use them and the servers are fast and very secure. Honestly speaking, I really do not think there is a comparable product out there.

    • Hi Rogerf20,

      Thank you for sharing your experience using Wealthy Affiliate system.

      You’re right, Jaaxy keyword research tool is so helpful in writing quality article that will showed up on search engine.

      There are many good features provided by Wealthy Affiliate, including a Starter Package which is free to join.

      I wish you success in your online business.


  12. Hi Christine,

    I couldn’t agree more that wealthy affiliate has all the you need to educate you, to walk with you through the training on your quest to become a certified online entreprenuer.

    The most important things to consider  in every endeavor that we are about to engage is the possessing of the proper mindset and the passion to become a  successful online entrepreneur.


    • Hi Grenda,

      Thanks for your comment.

      I totally agree with you that proper mindset is very important in creating a successful online business.

      All the best to you.
