The Wealthy Affiliate Community – What is it?

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 2 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.

WA community

Most of this information is geared towards a premium member because you get SO MUCH MORE that it is definitely worth being premium – at the bottom of this post 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.

Website/Wordpress Support

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.


An investment in knowledge pays the best interest. ~ Benjamin Franklin

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.

Learning at WA

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 online 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 online 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

Success stories abound every day:

Success Story # 1

Success Story # 2

Success Story # 3

Success Story # 4

These are just a few of the success stories – I could give you many more but I think you need to check for yourself.

Final Thoughts

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 a grid 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 become part of the Wealthy Affiliate community soon.

    What a cool looking community – I’ve been searching high and low for some training for my blogging skills online but normally everything seems ‘above my head’. This community seems set up for beginners like me – would I be right in thinking so?

    I’m also looking for some help with creating decent content – do they cover this sort of thing at the community in their tutorials?

    • MaryAnn Reply

      Hi Chris. Thanks for stopping by. You are absolutely correct in saying that this community is definitely set up for beginners – but also for the seasoned affiliate marketer. 

      There are literally hundreds, if not thousands of tutorials, classes and webinars on the importance of creating quality content. Help with creating decent contact is at your fingertips!

    I can tell you that I have been with Wealthy Affiliate for over 2 years now, and premium member all along.  It has been a blessing for me.  First, it has helped with building a website, all the training, tools, tips and community to help with that.  It has a great training section that will guide you thru everything and help you with everything you need to get your website not only up and running, but visible on Google and ranked well.  You will need patience, but in the end it is all worth it!

    • MaryAnn Reply

      Hello. Wealthy Affiliate must feel like home to you after 2 years and I bet you are still learning. They have so much to offer; it is where I built my own website which I am quite proud of now. Patience is definitely a must – and perseverance!

    As a member of Wealthy Affiliate for the last couple years there is no doubt you will not find a better platform anywhere on the internet.

    As for the community, it is absolutely unbelievable.  You can ask an answer any time of the day and have an answer in minutes and sometimes seconds.

    There really is no reason to think about this anymore.  You are here because you are interested in affiliate marketing or making money online or a combination of both.  Time to take the best plunge you will ever experience.

    • MaryAnn Reply

      Hi Dale. The Wealthy Affiliate community is so large but it is not really ‘impersonal.” You can always find someone, 24/7 who is awake and willing to answer your question or talk to you wherever they are in the world. That is pretty awesome! I think it is safe to say that we are all members here because we want a better life.

    Hi Mary Ann, I like the header title, Dream It, Plan It, Do It….that is very positive and uplifting.  I also like the fact that you wrote an entire post about the Wealthy Affiliate “Community”.  Imagine trying to do this with just some training lessons and no support.  I think that would be impossible.  You have a lot more experience than me on this journey and I appreciate the fact that you wrote about the community.  I started with the training to build a site to sell a product but switched over to the bootcamp training.  As a pay it forward community I felt it was important to tell others about Wealthy Affiliate.

    Well written, congratulations!

    • MaryAnn Reply

      Thanks Calvin, Wealthy Affiliate is definitely a ‘pay it forward’ community – no one hesitates when it comes to giving help. I too started with building a website revolving around my niche but have also enrolled in bootcamp. I am almost through it. It is definitely challenging at times but I am sure you agree we are learning so much and hopefully we will be able to give back to the community too.

    Dream-plan-do has presented a thorough review. It is lucid and comprehensive. Awesome fluidity in expressing how Wealthy Affiliate operates. 

    This world class organization encompassing over millions of online inhabitants proves its legitimacy in the scam prone online world-the biggest aspect as I see.

    It is ever evolving to be at the cutting edge of technology. Doesn’t it feel like get anything and everything from your community, rich in knowledge, vibrant and always ready to help! A feeling of security that you are not alone if you have a problem or success.

    The review describes all of the things ( training, niche related, Boot camp, live training, class room, live chat 24/7 and the famous weekly live training in a way that will convince the people to try WA. It takes time to be rich and you have to work hard. WA is not a get-rich-overnight scheme.

    I believe this blog will have massive success in helping people.

    • MaryAnn Reply

      Hello Anusuya. One only has to see the thousands of comments and interaction that takes place on Wealthy Affiliate to see just how active this community is. Help is available from community 24/7 as there is always someone awake somewhere in the world.

      Getting rich is definitely possible but it won’t happen overnight and will take a lot of hard work and determination!

    I think the best feature that WA offers is the community involvement. Not only do I receive help when I need it, but I learn so many new things from the webcast. You even have a step by step guide to help you set up your blog and monetize it. This is the best platform I have invested in. 

    • MaryAnn Reply

      Yes, this is one of the best features of WA. You can always interact with someone 24/7 – whenever you need it. You can never run out of stuff to learn. You no sooner master one, there is another one right there. Truly a great investment.
