Why is Wealthy Affiliate for me? Why I think it just might be for you, too.

Are you tired of spinning your wheels and getting no traction?

Have you given up on the “dream” to build your own business online?

Have you been taken advantage of by good ads posted by “Not So Good People”?

I know for sure that I would have answered YES to all three of these questions just a few short weeks ago and truth be told I could continue that list for a while. I have been researching, learning, working for, “I can’t tell you how long” to try and figure this out. I have been through several training courses on internet marketing and would recommend a few of them wholeheartedly. (See earlier Post on “the ShoeMoney Network”)

I have always been passionate about learning new things, challenged by the thought of, “I bet I can do that”. Well, since I left school, anyway. When I was in school, not so much. When I come across things that help me learn more about what excites my soul I just want to share it with as many people as I can. The good news is, “that is the entire premise behind a successful online business”.

Wealthy Affiliate Scam ? Whether or not you feel scammed really depends on what you have built up your personal expectation to be. If you read what the ads say, if you listen to the “Getting Started” training, there are no lies and deception. Kyle, one of the owners and founders, tells you right up front and over and over after that, exactly what you get for FREE.

In my humble opinion, Wealthy Affiliate Review, it is the perfect place to get started, to get some of the traction I mentioned earlier. If you have some education or experience with this stuff, some of the training may seem remedial. I feel that way in a lot of the training I go through, so it doesn’t bother me.

What you will get for FREE! and What you get with an upgrade!

Now I’m a pretty smart cookie, I have a highly developed intuition and I am sure if you are here and have read this far, you are too. Live support, personal blog, 2 websites, training courses, keyword tools…

That is a lot of stuff, for FREE! and you get 7 days to check it all out.

Look at how easy Wealthy Affiliate makes it easy to build a FREE website… CLICK ->

Ok, so there is going to be an offer to upgrade. If you aren’t used to that by now, I don’t know what to tell you. If I get an app for my phone for FREE it is full of ads, if I don’t want to see the ads I have to pay to upgrade.

Wealthy Affiliate Discount

Yes, there is a discount offer for those that sign up for the “Starter” program. Here is what it boils down to. You get 5 weeks of the best training available on the web for less than $20. You can cancel at any time, so if you don’t see the value or you just decide it’s not for you, move on with no hard feelings.

Most of the complaints I have seen and read are from people who signed up for FREE, like it, but then got upset after 7 days when some of the privileges were gone. I get it, but that’s how it works. Check it out for 7 days, if you find a value you can have full privileges for a month for under $20 and take a bit more time to decide. If you do move forward from there I have a special bonus for you. See details at the end of this review.

I have also seen some concerns posted about the fact that “Facebook” the worlds largest social network has warnings on Wealthy Affiliate links and posts. Well, that’s Facebook and eventually that will go away but it is just a warning and easy to move right past. None of the others, “Google +”, “Twitter”, “Pinterest” or “Linkedin”, feel the need.

I guess it’s about time I get to the “Why it’s for me part”.

  • Wealthy Affiliate is like a social network for internet marketers and I love social networking.
  • Wealthy Affiliate is “people helping people” and to me that is what life is all about.
  • I signed up for Premium to be a part of that and hopefully I learn lots of stuff and make a few bucks at the same time but either way I am getting what I paid for, The Community!

I truly believe how much you make is completely up to you! Maybe you are wondering about how long that takes. Here is a sneak peak inside to that very question. How long does it take to start earning an income in WA?

I tried to share what I feel in my heart and speak from there. This isn’t a sales pitch and I’m not after your wallet. I didn’t spend a lot of time giving you details about the training or tools and maybe I should have. It’s all there for you to explore absolutely FREE. What do you have to lose? Not time if you read this far. Go for it and I’ll see you inside. We can talk all you want.

As mentioned earlier there is a upgrade to premium available once you have had some time to check it out absolutely FREE for up to 7 days. If you do decide to upgrade to the Premium Membership in the first 7 days I will meet you inside and present you with your SPECIAL BONUS at no additional charge to you.

    Has wealthy affiliate had any bad ratings by the BBB? I would be interested in knowing their business rating and when their last complaint was and what it was about.

      I am not really sure why you would trust BBB because I have read more bad stuff about them than Wealthy Affiliate. However, I did try to research it for you and I found that BBB show Wealthy Affiliate to have a B+ rating. The last complaint was a request for a refund which was granted and the case is closed.
      Here is the thing, you can sign up free and stay a free memeber as long as you want. I also give you my personal commitment to help you in every way possible. You can check me out at my other site http://thesoulfan.com to get to know a little about me.
      Thanks for posting your question and I hope this helps.

    Soc, I just stopped by to see how your site was progressing and to give your readers an honest view of Wealthy Affiliate University from the inside. Correctly referred to as a university because of all the tools and training courses WAU provides. I actually researched a major online University offering the same courses and compared the cost. The Major online University courses over $10,000; Wealthy Affiliate University is Free to Start, you get 20 video training courses and 2 Free websites. If you decide to become a member is only $19 the first month then $47 per month. The best option is $357/year. That’s a dollar a day to start your business, create, launch and maintain your websites. What other business do you know of that you can do all this for a dollar a day? I started with zero experience and by day 4 of the training, I had created and launched my 2 Free websites.
    I have to say that 60 % of my success is attributed to the other high ranking members that, in the 24-7 Live Chat room, unselfishly give their time to answer questions and help you succeed.
    WAU is the real deal and if you are thinking about starting your own online business, you have the passion and drive, it’s the best platform to start. It’s really Free no credit card required, so you have nothing to loose and a future in business to gain.
    Great Job on you site. See your on the inside.

      Hey Bob,

      Thanks so much for stopping by, I very much appreciate the comment and the advice you have shared with, as well as my readers. I can only hope that my readers are savy enough to, at least, take a look for FREE before they make a decision on something that could completely change their lives.

      The thing about WAU that truly sets it apart is the community… and you can’t put a value, in dollars, on that but it is the golden nugget you get when you join.

      The willingness to help each other and to share knowledge is truly amazing. I feel like WA is my second family, more so than my full time job.

      Thanks Again,
