Six Months On Wealthy Affiliate. My Honest Review


cooltext189950728125871 300x27 - Six Months On Wealthy Affiliate. My Honest Review


I have been on the Wealthy Affiliate for six months as of now. So, what do I think and what’s my take on this program? Read on to find out what I’ve learned and  if I think the Wealthy Affiliate is worth what lots of people are saying it is.

My first Month On Wealthy Affiliate

th 4 - Six Months On Wealthy Affiliate. My Honest Review
Wealthy Affiliate

My first month on this program was a bit hectic and somewhat confusing. I had no problem building my first couple of websites and I have to say they were pretty easy to get up and running. But, was that all it took to make the Wealthy Affiliate work for me? Not at all. In fact there are tutorials and lessons to take, comments on other people’s site I had to post, blogs to write….it seems there was always something new to do on this program. My first month entailed really just trying to understand how the whole affiliate marketing deal worked and then there was more content building and lessons even after I understood the basics of the Wealthy Affiliate. To take a look at my profile go here.

Ok, so once my first month was over, I realized the idea behind this online program was simply to create content, insert pictures and affiliate links and just keep going. Kind of like wash, rinse repeat over and over again. I picked a niche which was blogging tips for newbies. It seemed simple enough and I had enough experience as a blogger to give some tips. I figured this niche would have some longevity. Within my first three months I had figured out how SEO works, keywords, and what type of content to write. It really seemed to come all together within the first three months, but was all the effort and writing worth it?

Here’s where it gets tricky. I won’t say I made a ton of affiliate sales. I won’t say I didn’t write over 100 blogs on my website, which I did. I won’t say I make a lot of money in the first three months. I will say that I set myself up to see that long term my website through the Wealthy Affiliate is showing promise. And I will say that I have made some money through ads on my site and I have even figured out how to get some Wealthy Affiliate referrals.

At this point I am at six months on the program and to be honest I really like it. It’s simple, the website platform is easy to work with, the tutorials are easy to understand and it’s better than any other online work platform I have ever come across. Did I bank big time? No, not yet but I plan to.  I guess the next question would be is it worth the $47.00 a month I have paid for the Wealthy Affiliate to become a Premium member? My response would be…for me yes it has. Now that’s not to say it would be for everyone. I say this because to be successful on Wealthy Affiliate you have to work and study hard. There is a lot of competition out there and if you can’t write in basic English I would say you may be wasting your time and money unless you are creating content for your own language other than English. I’ll also say it’s not for someone who has absolutely no common sense and thinks money falls from trees. It doesn’t happen and you will most definitely be wasting your time if you fall into this category.

So, is Wealthy Affiliate worth it for normal everyday people looking to start their own online business? I say YES! If anything it’s worth signing up for free and seeing what the program has to offer. If it’s something you think you could do then I say go for it at least for the free trial. You really have nothing to lose. If you’re on the fence about whether or not it works, it does if you work it. This isn’t a scam, it’s how big business market their products and while I may be the little guy on campus, I do see some potential long term. Here is what the free and premium memberships get you.
<wealthy affiliate membership grid - Six Months On Wealthy Affiliate. My Honest Review

As you can see you get a whole lot more with the premium membership and while it’s pretty cheap compared to other programs it’s important to take advantage of all the lessons, videos, support groups and training with it. Otherwise you could be wasting your money. And there are I am sure people who just pay the membership and post in the forums like Facebook but don’t really have to drive to do anything else. Which is another thing. Support groups are fine and the Wealthy Affiliate has a great member base support group but don’t get caught up in the constant back and forth posting. It will sap your energy and time. But, if you’re dedicated, willing to write a blog every couple of days like I just did here, you will succeed.

Ok, that’s my take on the Wealthy Affiliate. Hopefully this short blog helped you to decide whether it’s worth taking on or not. If it is great and if not, that’s fine too. The one thing you should know before I leave is it will take time to see results. And the time you spend on the Wealthy Affiliate should be time well spent. Now, if you’re ready to at least check out this awesome program for a free trial take a look here and sign up today. Free Wealthy Affiliate Sign Up

Scams Will Bankrupt You!

I’ts no surprise as many Americans look to retirement they are also looking for ways to make an income to supplement that retirement. But, are the programs out there claiming to help people really doing that or just trying to separate individuals from their hard earned money? Chances are they are looking to empty your wallet, bank account and anything of value from you. It really is pretty disgusting. And in this blog I’ll be looking at some popular programs that look to be promising but are for the most part complete scams! To start out, let’s take a look at the ever growing in popularity rev share industry.

Don’t Get Scammed!

Rev Shares Are Scams

Rev Shares are fast becoming a way people can make a quick buck by duping people to invest a certain amount of cash flow into the program by purchasing ad packs or ad shares. They claim that by purchasing ad packs you are buying into advertisement packages which is what makes the rev share legit. But, how legit are the adpacks you are buying? After checking these things out I found that the advertisements are basically useless because the only one seeing your ad are the people who are in the ad share program. Sounds shady huh? Well, it is and considering a vast majority of these programs pop up from countries outside of the United States, chances are there is something not right about them. Recently rev share companies like HQ Rev Share, Ultimate Rev Share have fallen into the scam mode when the owner feints an illness or death in the family and takes off with the pool of money collected from unsuspecting victims. It really is bad because these things close down with no notice and no hint of failing. So, if you are looking at joining one of these I would suggest really rethinking because you’re bound to waste a lot of time and money. Additionally, Paypal has deemed these things SCAMS and have shut down all interactions with the companies…(If You Want To Call Them One)

Home Success Programs Are Scams

Would You Trust This Guy?

Another scheme, scam is the Home Success Scam. Home success scams work like this. You pay a small fee to join and they are usually schemes that praise Google and the ability to earn up to 1000.00 per week. The scam usually claims you can “Make Money With Google” or “Get Paid Doing Nothing”. Amazingly a lot of people have fallen prey to these scams and yet people still join on a daily basis. Once the credit card number is given, the small fee is deducted but after a week to a month, your credit card will be charged again as a recurring debit. If you call to cancel, you will more than likely be reach a number that’s been discontinued or no answer at all. Cancelling with these programs can be done however by contacting your bank or the issuing card company. If paying by Paypal simply click the box that stops recurring payments to the company or program. If you need help call Paypal or go online to Take a look at this article on Home Success Scams.

Countries Where Scams Pop Up

Unfortunately, we live in a world where others prey on the vulnerability of others. And, while the United States warns people to stay away from scams online, there are constantly people who fall victim. Additionally, many of these scams pop up from countries like the U.K., Africa, Singapore and Malaysia to name a few. Some of the scammers create enticing websites created by people who speak fluent English and have extensive web building experience. So, if it looks to good to be true or if the program wants any money or debit card upfront, steer clear! You should never for any reason give you credit or debit card number to any program or company offering you work. You will be SCAMMED!

Ok, so my rant has ended for this blog on what I found to be scams online. But, don’t feel bad if you have been duped into joining a program that has turned out to be bogus. It doesn’t mean you’re an idiot. In fact many people have been hustled online but it doesn’t have to continue. Just be aware that these things out there are you will be much better off. I myself have tried a few and yes I hit a brick wall. But, I did finally find a program that works but only if you work it correctly. And that means you have to work. If you like to blog and want to earn at it I would suggest checking it out. In fact, the blog you are reading right now is a result of my work with this company. But, I won’t try and push you into something without letting you know you can try it out for free. It’s a learning university that teaches you how to write and market. While you do have to put in your due diligence I will say that it’s worth trying out for free. Check it out below.

How Do You Get Paid To Write Blogs?

Now that is an interesting question and honestly can be difficult to explain in full detail but you need to know first off that yes you can get paid to write blogs. But how do you find a way to do it and does it take more work than it’s worth? Well, like anything that’s going to pay off, writing blogs will take a lot of work to actually make money doing it. I don’t mean writing for eight hours a day either. If you can just write one post a day for a year that means you will have 365 blog post by the time you are finished and those blogs by that time if written correctly should be making you money. And that’s money being made passively off of ads and affiliate products. Ads and affiliate products are the way to earn on a blog but keep in mind, there’s a lot of competition and writing regularly will give you a considerable edge over the next blogger.

The Wealthy Affiliate Platform

Ok, so now that I’ve explained to you that income can be created through blogging, what’s the best way to get started right? Well, you could go the route I did initially and set up a profile on or one of the many other content sites out there but I really wouldn’t suggest doing that. Why? Because I did and it took a lot of time to see any real progress and income. In short, it was a waste of energy long term. I won’t say it was a waste of time but the energy I put in to make blogging for someone else was. Finally, I found the Wealthy Affiliate and began my own blogging business through them. They gave me a couple websites to get started. Nothing fancy but it got me moving in the right direction. And then I took advantage of the training they offered. In the end I truly believe it was the right move. I now have a website with over 120 blogs and my rankings are moving up in the search engines. It really is a pretty nice experience and the company has helped me through some of the tricky steps to learning how to blog effectively. So, does this sound like something that you could do? Do you like to blog? Do you have an interest you could write about regularly? If you do you should check out the Wealthy Affiliate and sign up for free.
