Over the next few months I am going to be talking about the different components of Wealthy Affiliate, affectionately known as WA, but in this post, I want to address the WA community of individuals and experts.
After all, why would you want to join a company where you know nothing about the members? Don’t worry; we will talk about building websites, niches and keywords, affiliate marketing, etc., in the weeks to come, but for now let’s talk about the community here.
Over 1 million people have come through the doors of WA. Wow, imagine that many people under one umbrella. WA is the largest affiliate marketing community and platform in the world. Something must be right!
Now we all know, as with anything, members come and go, but a vast majority are staying and I will tell you why.
Most of this information is geared towards a premium member because you get SO MUCH MORE that it is definitely worth being premium – there will be a link at the bottom of this post so that you can see for yourself the difference between being a Starter and a Premium but for now we will focus on premium.
Support and Mentorship
As a beginner, WA recognizes that you will have questions in your learning journey and is there to provide the answers. Kyle and Carson, the owners, care about your success and support people directly every day!
Maybe you are having a bad day and just need somewhere to vent and get some encouragement.
A live chat facility is available for immediate support. This support is ongoing, 24/7.
Expert Mentoring and Support
You will have access to several ways to ask questions within the WA platform. You can get help quickly whether you are looking for answers on marketing, Google, SEO, technical help or just a question in general.
Here you will have the opportunity to ‘rub’ shoulders with some of the most successful marketing entrepreneurs in the world:
- 24/7, no matter what part of the world you are in!
- You will never feel alone – there is always someone available to answer your questions.
- Expert help is always available – combined years of expertise is huge and there for you.
- You will have access to unlimited communication.
- Website and hosting support in 5 minutes or less (I can speak directly to this as I often need help from tech support and I am constantly amazed at how quickly they address my issues. There is no email saying that someone will get back to you within 24 hours. They address your issue immediately!).
As a community, it is a ‘pay it forward’ philosophy and you will have the ability to connect with tens of thousands of industry experts who hang out in WA daily.
As you build out your first website (and we will talk about that in a later post), you are going to have lots of questions, have moments of frustration and want to scream. Don’t worry. You have a community of website and technical support to jump in to help you out.

The education you will gain from being a member is phenomenal and second to none. You will learn what works. You will have all the tools to make you successful like thousands of others before you.
This is what you can expect on your journey:
Once a week, you will have a live class training session with Jay, our lead trainer. At present, they are every Friday evening (depending on your part of the world). Here you will have an opportunity for one hour plus to learn something new that will benefit you in your on line business. At the end of each session, there is a live Q & A period. Can’t make it? No sweat, all training sessions are recorded and available in a very short time.
This includes over 300 hours of education. This is a gold mine of information you don’t want to miss out on.
There are literally thousands of training modules at your fingertips. Many of our community members provide training blogs covering every topic imaginable to successfully run an online business. Each one can be saved and referenced later as well – you can pick and choose what you want to keep.
You will have access to Classrooms, Evolving Daily (12 Classrooms) covering a variety of topics such as Facebook ads, e-Commerce, AdSense, marketing, SEO, pay per click, email marketing, etc.
Content Writing Platform
Do you love to write? If you are new to on-line marketing, there is a saying and it is especially enforced at WA – “Content is King.” This is what drives your ranking in Google. Here you will have a state-of-the-art platform to build your content, track writing goals, access to over 1,000,000 graphics, grammar and spelling check, plagiarism checker, and templates.
Create Training and Earn Money
As part of this great community, you can develop your own training modules and earn revenue. How cool is that? Besides the satisfaction of earning revenue, you will be helping your fellow members by giving back.
Blogging on the WA Platform
Each of us has our own profile blog where you can share experiences and successes online and actually get ranked for them! Your posts will show up on Google and other search engines. Oh, and in case you were wondering? Yes, you can get revenue because if someone sees your blog on google and decides to become a member, you are going to get monetary compensation for it!
Success stories abound every day:
These are just a few of the success stories – I could give you many more but I think you need to check for yourself.
Becoming a member of WA is like no other platform out there. I have tried a few and there is no comparison.
All of this information is just icing on the cake. There are so many other features available. Watch for future articles on some of them, including building your own website to start your online business.
I am not going to tell you that you are going to make a ton of money here; I am not going to tell you it is easy money; I am not going to try to convince you to join here! But what I can tell you is that with hard work, time and commitment, you CAN do what others have done. This is NOT a get-rich-quick scam. What these success stories all have in common is this: YOU HAVE TO PUT IN THE TIME!
As promised, here is the link explaining in detail what being Premium gives you vs Starter. Just a quick note – there is nothing wrong with being a Starter. Most of us, myself included started here. In my case, I was in my fourth free lesson when I decided to become a Premium. Some members never go Premium and stay a Starter (as a Starter, you are NEVER asked for your credit card information). It is all about YOU and what you WANT!!
I look forward to seeing you part of the Wealthy Affiliate community soon.
