My #1 Recommendation on How To Start Your  Online Business


Wealthy Affiliate Earned My All-Time Highest Rating of 98 Points Out Of 100 And Continues To Be My #1 FREE Recommendation.

A Sad Fact! The Internet is full of SCAMS!


A lot of people ask me….


“John, how did you start your online business…..and do you really make money?”

Well, to be honest, my starting out was a disaster. I browsed the web for opportunities like so many thousands before and after me.

And like so many others, I tried different programs which sounded too good to be true. I fell for the hype and empty promises.

Most of these programs, as you may know, are based on outright lies and deception. For a couple of years, I jumped from product to product.


  • I’ve bought  email marketing courses which barely scratched the surface of the topic, and was supposed to spend more money on ‘needed upsells’.


  • I’ve bought some of these ‘3-mouse-clicks & push-a-button systems, lean back and watch the dough roll in’ systems; I am still leaning back but nothing rolls in!


  • I’ve bought into this sick idea of joining MLMs, throwing house parties at my friends homes, trying to sell diet pills and lip sticks; now they all avoid me like the plaque!


  • I’ve even tried my luck in the binary option trading market, relying on some miracle software that’s 97% right all the time; almost lost the t-shirt off my back!


I was throwing money away “hand over fist“, and wasted precious time! I am sure you can understand my frustration and also the anger I felt; at the whole world and at myself for being plain stupid.


BUT………..I did not want to give up.


I talked to my best friend about this whole mess and he started to ask me a lot of questions I DID NOT have any answers for. Suddenly, I realized that I did not know anything about:


  • How to start an online business
  • How to make my business found on the Internet
  • How to build a website
  • What to put on the website
  • How to monetize a website


I realized, that I went about the whole thing the wrong way. Instead of googling ‘how to make money online‘, I should have searched for ‘how to learn internet marketing‘ or ‘what is affiliate marketing’……., something along these lines!


Guess what? One day, while browsing the web again, I came across a review about a program that got my attention. I found a whole bunch of write-ups about this particular program, and something very unique kept staring at me. 



Can you believe that? I actually stumbled on a program that really teaches you step-by-step how to build an online business from home with your computer or laptop. And the best part is that you can try it without having to spend a dime.

Please, take just 9 minutes out of your busy schedule and keep on reading. Most programs are crap, but when you come across the only one that really works as advertised, it is worth your while.

Let me introduce you to the program that was founded over 10 years ago, surpassed and fought off a handful of serious contenders, to become the industry leader in the online business learning industry.


The Wealthy Affiliate


Here is the bare-naked truth about this remarkable work-from-home program. When I joined Wealthy Affiliate, I had serious doubts if this would be any better than the other programs I tried before.

Guess what happened. A “skeptic” turned quickly into a true believer.

It didn’t take long to realize that Wealthy Affiliate is the right program for me. I committed myself to follow the course lessons and applied what I learned to the website I built in the first week after I joined. Much to my surprise, I started to make money; from home, with my laptop, online.

Don’t get me wrong; this did not happen over night. However, after a few months of learning and building my business at the same time, the income became consistent.



OK, time to tell you what awaits you on the inside, and show you how I started and continue to make money with this program.


How Wealthy Affiliate Will Help You Work From Home


Let me ask you this:

Do you really like your job? The same routine day-in and day-out; a boss you can’t stand; hour long commutes and the meager pay?

Now imagine there is a program that teaches you how to leave all of that behind and create a job you really like.

Is there such a program?” you may ask? I also had my doubts until I found Wealthy Affiliate.

I’ve tried and reviewed many programs. Most are plain crap or outright Scams.

Even the few I could recommend require you to market a certain product or service. And you would be right back into the old “routine of…….. I don’t like it”.



Wealthy Affiliate Is Different.

The innovative step-by-step-training encourages you to exploit your passions and interests, teaches you how to build websites, generate traffic to your sites AND how to make money online doing work you will like.






Before I show you exactly how I made my first bucks with the Wealthy Affiliate program, let me talk a bit about this “IT IS FREE” thing.


You Really Can Test Drive Wealthy Affiliate For Free


Once upon a time, it cost $47.00 just to “go on the other side”!

This was before my time, though. By the time I stumbled on Wealthy Affiliate, Kyle and Carson, the two college friends who founded the company, decided to let people in for free.

Why did they do that?

Well, they realized that they created a program that stood out far above any other. Removing the entry fee gives “doubters like me” a chance to try out their program, risk free.

Of course, they want and do make money with their program.

Wealthy Affiliate offers a Premium Membership area for you to consider later on. Find out first if this is what you want and then decide.

If you think it’s the right program for you and you are serious about your own business in Internet Marketing, the upgrade to Premium Membership is A MUST thing to do.


How I Made My First Bucks Online With The Wealthy Affiliate Program


wealthy affiliate reviewI am always searching the web for the “hottest weight loss” supplements. Not because I need them, but I know that they are a big-money item for online marketers.

One of the first things I learned at Wealthy Affiliate was how to find affiliate programs for a particular product and how to became an affiliate to earn commissions.

I liked that a lot, as you can imagine. Then I followed the step-by-step lessons how to build a small website. A starter member gets 2 free websites and free hosting.

I liked that also a lot, as you can imagine. The next step was to add content (3 pages) to my site, add images of the product and apply the affiliate links. I was ready to go.

“But not so fast”, says Kyle, the co-founder of Wealthy Affiliate. “Your site looks a lot like the sites from other folks. You need to do something special to outrank the others in Google”!

“What Do I Need To Do”, I wondered.

Well, at Wealthy Affiliate they teach you how to research the niche and the keywords that rank high in Google. They also provide the necessary tool for free. So, I took the whole thing to another level and learned everything about SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and the power of written articles.

Over a period of 10 days, I wrote ONE review about the product and 4 other related articles. I added a collection of user comments about the product as well. I published one post every other day. And lo and behold, just 2 weeks after I submitted my website to Google and Bing for indexing, two of my articles could be found on page one of the search results.

My site generated traffic, just a little at first, but within 3 months I had an average of over 200 visitors per day.

And as they say “The rest was history”.

How much money did I make? Let me put it this way. I did not become a millionaire; over the span of 8 months I made twice the yearly income of my last job.

You see, I didn’t have to sell a product. What I learned at Wealthy Affiliate is to connect with people and give them the “information” they are looking for. This is what makes them buy the product through your website, and you make the commission.



Here Is What Wealthy Affiliate Has To Offer


► Step-By-Step Training:

The training is easy to follow and always up-to-date. The lessons cover all aspects of internet marketing and are supported by excellent videos and tutorials that are added daily. Members can create their own training material and share it with the community. Techie experts and experienced internet marketers are eager to help newcomers and let them in on their “secrets” how things work.

► Easy To Use Tools:

You get free access to an easy to use tool to create simple websites. Kyle and Carson also provide you with a free Keyword Research Tool. These tools are a very important corner stone for WA members

► Weekly Live Webinar:

These free webinars are informative, fun to attend and geared to support members who are not “techies”. Currently, there are over 350 videos in the library and the members can access them at any time.

Starter Members get free hosting for two websites. Premium Members get free hosting for up to 25 websites, even for sites they may already operate before joining Wealthy Affiliate. You can’t beat that, now can you?

► One-On-One Support:

Most programs rank very low in the support department. They either use a third-party support desk or have no support system at all. Some do offer one-on-one coaching with a hefty price tag. Wealthy Affiliate, again, stands far above all other programs. Kyle and Carson are actively involved in the member forum and in the live chat room. You also can reach them via PM (private messaging) and they always respond to your requests.


The Wealthy Affiliate Community:

You are joining a college like community of like minded people from all over the world.

  1. Hi John. I’m so glad I came across your blog. This has really opened my eyes. I was going to joining DA but I did not have $2100! It’s just too much money. if I’ve never built my own website before would WA be a good place to start for me? I need to make some extra side cash outside my full-time job and just tired of all the scams out there selling pipe dreams. I would like to try the free membership ship.

  2. Misty Nakoa

    Hi John!
    Wow your information has been enormously useful. I am totally new to this world and will try to take it to the top! I am a Sociology graduate with a minor in Hawaiian studies. I live in Maui. Mother of 2 (college students) and married for 21 years. I have always been in the social work field as a counselor and I love giving advice. I would love to create a niche on Counseling whether it be for teens (I worked with Juvenile Courts for 20 years) or marriage or life in general. Could you steer me in the right direction?

  3. Kenny Hamilton

    Hi John loved your review and really glad that I stumbled upon it never thought I would find anything legitimate on the Internet so looking forward to actually making money.
    Thanks a lot

  4. Hi John,

    It is a very useful article. Thanks a lot for sharing your experience. I registered for free program. But when i login, its saying there is no free option available in my country.

    Please help here.


  5. Hi John,

    I am a web developer mom of 6 yrs old girl. I have left job to be home with my kid. I was going through DA training program since last one month. I was about to take serious step for the memberships. Then i thought of reading about the truth of DA and came through realty and there only i read your reviews about DA and WA. I must say all of your comments seems real. You are good at words. You have motivated my inner-self.

    It would be great if you can advice or channelise my business thought. I am a web developer having good knowledge of website development in bootstrap and wordpress. I am good at photography, drawing, sketching and paintings and crafting for kids. I am good at writing blogs too. I am a creative person.

    Please suggest me which area would be useful to earn money in online business.

    Thanks a lot in advance. Looking forward to your response.

    I am going to register for WA after posting this message :).


  6. Rick Roberts

    The biggest problem I have with Wealthy Affiliate is that it seems they teach all their members to go out and create blogs that trash all other systems and programs BUT recommend WA as the only real and legit program to be in. Seriously guys this is getting OLD-OLD-OLD

  7. Rachel Morrow

    Hi there! I’m a member of Digital Altitude, and I just started that program about a week ago. I’m on free trial.
    I hear that you aren’t supportive of the program. Can you please give me details why? I have such a helpful, encouraging coach, and I really want to make this work.

  8. AnthonK

    Hi John, thank you for your review on WA, much appreciated. I can’t agree with you more that this is a wonderful opportunity to get into creating an Online Internet Marketing Business. I am really looking forward to work through the educational material and get up and running as soon as possible. Thank you once again.

  9. Carole Bate

    Hi John
    Very good review and I have signed up and am very excited to begin. Like you have gone through the ropes and have wanted to learn all this but felt that the paying requests in others creates a pressure that I could not keep up with. I like this already and would thank you again

  10. Hi John,

    Wow! I read everything on your page about your review on Inbox BluePrint and then Wealthy Affiliates. Yeah! IF we are not willing to invest in ourselves, it’s a sure go that any investments made for us by others will not endure. So I read to the end and now I give your my comments. Thank you for your TIME to put this review together. I have been wanting and needing to get involved with Internet Marketing (IM) for a few months now and have watched a few videos on YouTube. It’s daunting… So many claims and people seem to be so sincere. I know there is no FREE lunch. I am the ultimate newbie to IM and don’t mind investing in myself but would appreciate the bare facts and truth that it most definitely takes time to learn the fundamentals to build a sustainable foundation for a successful internet business.

    Thank you again, John. I am looking forward to MY SUCCESS.

    Best wishes to you on your continued success.

  11. Hello john,
    Thanks for the review on WA yo are spot on its a great community. Also, read your other review about digital altitude(aspire) thanks!

  12. Walter Mau

    Hello John,
    I read your article on Digital Altitude and I believe you are absolutely correct. Only the top 2% of the income earners are truly successful. I believe it’s because they have so much money to invest in advertising that they just smash the competition to death! Now for my questions. First, how many websites did you have published within your Wealthy Affiliate account when you got your first sale? Was it more than 25 websites or was it one of the 2 free start-up websites or something else? Second, when you reach your limit of websites with a Premium Membership what happens? Do you have to work with another hosting company or do you pay Wealthy Affiliate more money to get more websites? I used to have an account that had about ten websites that some company helped me build, but I never got a single sale. I don’t want to waste my time because I’m getting to be too old!!! Great website you have here! I look forward to hearing back from you. Sincerely, Walter

  13. Reb Howell

    Hello John,
    My name is Reb Howell. Hope your having a great day. I’m currently at home watching the Arnold Palmer Invitational and reading about this great opportunity. I can honestly say, I almost was another person who considered trying Digital Altitude. After reading your opinion, and ALL the other opinions towards the site, there’s no way I will even attempt to even try that. I have been very interested in working from home for years but, have been to scared to take that step because, I didn’t want to get caught up in a scam. After reading everything about WA, I feel like I have finally found what I have been looking for to take that 1st step and change my future. I’m currently not able to access a computer or laptop to get myself started ASAP. I will be able to have access in a couple of weeks, so I will start then. I would like to thank you again for this opportunity John. Have a great day Reb!

  14. Hello Mr John,
    They said my country is not supported.
    Can you do something about it because I am interested.


    • What country would that be?


      • Hi John, I really want to work from home, and I have lots of interests from DIY, fashion, writing (I’m an ex English and Maori language teacher), food, marital relationships (depression and different psychological disorders; I hold a degree and masters in clinical psychology). I’m also interested in child development and parenting. So my question is, how does one choose a niche, or rather narrow it down to create a good website?

  15. I MUST give John a credit for this review. I actually ended up from this page via his digital altitude review in which I’m really so skeptical about it.

    John…you saved my day and may almighty God reward you for helping people. I don’t usually signup from any affiliate url or referral…but since I trusted your detailed reviews….then its ok and I’ll go ahead and register via your referral link.

    One more thing John, can you review CB Passive Income by Patrick Chan?

  16. hey John!,am Betty from NIGERIA………..tried registering but was told my country is not supported.Am really interested…HELP!!!!!!!

    • Hello Betty, I believe we do have members from your country. Let me look into this…I will email you.

    • Hello Betty my Name is Wale am a Nigerian and lives in Kano state its easy to register with wealthy affiliate and enjoy the benefits they offer just as I am enjoying it right all u need is to email me on and I will explain further.

  17. Sanjay Kumar

    Hello John Sir,
    First of all I want to say thanks for helping innocent people who have already scammed by Internet shark, I really don’t know why these rascal do like DA because it is already known that nature never forgive anyone. Truth to be told I am also the kind of person who easily got scammed & after seeing your blog I totally harassed & confused whom to trust…I afraid to afford any other scam & truely I told that will be my day on this planet …I really tired from these rascalsellers. please help me in this way I really give my 100% effort for WA

  18. HI John

    What I have read so far has really caught my attention, the opportunity sounds really great!! I hope that everything I read is on the other side. Looking forward to a new adventure

  19. How juvenile can you be, if you want an automobile, you go to a lot and test drive one and figure out what you want and like in a automobile. Then you can make a deceision on what you want to pay for. You don’t know how many miles you will get out of it or how long it will last, that is all dependent on you and how you take care of it, or what you do!
    I like what I see, so as of today I am going to give this a test drive, no one has promised me anything except the opportuniity itself. If I crash it, well that’s on me.
    Thanks John for steering me in the right direction, it could have been ugly, Peace!

  20. Hi John
    This sounds good to me. I’m not a rocket scientist. From what I see this seems to be in level I can understand if not I can ask. I like the idea of free to get started. I don’t have any experience doing this type of stuff. That last thing turned out to be a pyramid scheme too much money when I read about it being a scam. But I felt like I was getting an education felt good. Now I found this site. I think it safe. Time will tell

    Thank you for this opportunity

  21. Titus Job

    Hi John, Thanks for your review. I have been fooling around on the internet for over two years, investing in tons of scams. So I can relate to most of the things you mentioned. So I will try wealthy affiliate for a change!

  22. Owen Turner

    About the ads and links that you get paid for when someone clicks on them… How do you receive the commission? Do you have to give each link (like say an Amazon, and some other product link) your bank account so they can deposit? Thanks

    • Hi Owen, thanks for your comment. Amazon pays commission either by direct deposit, or check. Most vendors with affiliate programs, and most affiliate networks pay via paypal and/or check.

  23. Hello John,

    I am a college student who is interested in make extra money, is it open to students?


    • Hi Gordon, it’s perfect for students. Come on in, and we can talk then. It won’t cost you a dime to take look around, build your first site, or 2, and start learning. Use the link in this article, and let me know when you arrive. I’ll be with you shortly thereafter.


  24. Bishop Souls

    Hello John good work you are doing. I need to mail you directly on something important

  25. Love your style John – I am a WA member and have had friends promoting DA to me and went thru the first few steps – then the light went on just as you have outlined – it will be dead soon for sure!
    Thanks for a great site and No. 2 when you search ‘digital altitude scam’

  26. Jules Gagnon

    Hey John by any chance would you have any Success stories or proof that people are making money off of this program? I’ve just been scammed too many times and need a stable platform that is legitimate. thanks

    • Hi Jules, I sent you a link to some success stories

      • Hi John, been looking at DA, and came across your site. I would like to see some stats and ‘real life’ current success stories. Also, how much time per day would you say you spend – I imagine even just answering all the comments and emails are particularly time consuming.

        Looking forward to your comment.

        Cheers, Mandy.

        • Hi Mandy, thanks for your comment. Follow the link below and see some real success stories (click on the links within the article) Let me know if you have any more questions

  27. Soo, Nigerians are not allowed to benefit fron this, how great.

    • Patrick, yes Nigerians can…and we have a lot of nigerian members. However, the FREE option is not available due to some fraudulent activities in the past. I will email you.

  28. Steven Wiley

    Hey john,
    I got an email from digital altitude and it sounded to good to be true, so I started checking into it. I could not find anything that they were selling except for a sales pitch. I stumbled onto a web page of yours and you seem to make a lot more sense. I am disabled and unable to do physical work and was looking into trying to make money online and your WA system has gotten my interest. I am going to sign up and see if we can make a go of it. Thank you for all of the good information that you put out there.

  29. I’m not really seeing the difference here between Digital Altitude and Wealthy Affiliate besides DA having higher ticket prices. What are you selling with WA? Could you help me understand? Thank you

    • Jessica, WA is a membership site where people learn how to start an online business in affiliate marketing. I am not selling anything with WA, I refer this learning center to folks that are willing to learn, work hard and then make money with their websites. I am getting a commission for each referral, but only for this particular person. There are no downlines or tier levels like in MLM and pyramid schemes.

  30. Hi John,
    Lovely article. Wish I had read this seven years ago before I typed, “making money online” in Google. But then sometimes you learn the hard way. After 3 years of struggle and losses, I walked away from the so called ‘make money online’ world. I learnt that the more desperate you are to make money online the more vulnerable you get for sharks to scam you. Most of the people like me lost money because we didn’t realize that we need to first learn the ropes. We needed money fast and we thought that the internet was some kind of free-for-all reservoir for everyone to tap into and take their fill. The sharks knew it and preyed on us. Hence all those videos, promising a tsunami of cash with a press of a few mouse clicks. And like you were, I too am leaning and waiting for the dough. The most hilarious of all videos was one where the guy talks about how he went to some shady place in Russia to hunt down a genius programmer who had found a loophole in Google that made huge amounts of money with a software that he created. When I look back, all I can say is, “What was I thinking?” I did come across WA during those years, but I must have brushed it aside as some similar scam like others. But now I am much educated having done some certifications in digital marketing and some work for my company in online advertising. I came across WA while I was looking at some opp somebody sent me after years. I looked at youtube videos, one thing led to another and I hit upon your site. I know various things already. My interest in WA is to get the ability to stitch everything together in a logical way to monetize the knowledge in anticipation to my retirement. I am not in a hurry, but a year from now, I look myself working from home dictating my own work hours. My interest is not as much in affiliate marketing. I am more interested in consulting small companies in some areas of digital marketing. But hey, if I find along the way that affiliate marketing is more profitable, why not? Spent my life as a copywriter and graphic designer anyway. Maybe I can use that. As I said, I only need to know how to stitch everything together to make a decent retirement income from home.

    Long story short. John, count me in. Will go for the $19 deal straight off the bat. Today is 23 Aug. 26 Aug is my credit card cutoff date.

    • Hi Lawrence, thanks for your comment. I just sent you an email. Please, get back with me when you get a chance

    • Mikke Marion

      Hi Lawrence, I too have a background in Graphic design. In fact I have a small business in desktop publishing. I have my certificate in desktop publishing after taking a 2 year course at the local college. Have you been able to use your knowledge in the field to help you in Internet marketing? Any hints will help me in one of my prime interests in life. I have helped publish 7 books for a friend of mine for inclusion on Amazon Kindle using the Create Space program at Amazon. I would love to promote that as an affiliate. I’ll talk to Amazon about that. What do you think. Many people want to publish their work on Amazon.

  31. John you are full of sh**. You just wrote scam articles about other affiliateprograms just to promote your own….hahaha.

  32. Mélissa

    Hi John…
    My doubt resides on the fact that with WA we are suppose to learn how to create websites and to me that means learning to make it attractive… But as I followed the link to this page… I was concerned because, it’s plain and truthfully not very nice.

    • Hello Melissa, thanks for chiming in. What link to what site are you talking about? And don’t forget, beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder

    • Ok, I see what you are saying. WA teaches you to make beautiful looking websites, but you find this blog not at all beautiful, so your question is, What did John learn after all, if his own site is plain and simple. WA has beautiful templates of websites that you can use to sell affiliate products from clickbank, amazon etc. This is not that site. What John has created here is a simple down-to-earth no frills blog only explaining WA. Whereas the actual sites that John might be using to sell products sure must be different and appealing.

  33. Rhona Youngblood

    some people are passive reader, they read without really bothering to understand what they’re reading. it’s nice to come across reviews such as this one, makes me feel there’s still hope for people like me to find legitimate income online. too bad that WA is not available in my country though, but to those who can join i say it’s worth a try!

  34. hi i created an account today. It says that there is no free access in my area and i have to buy the premium membership to access. I am from India but i now live in US. So is there any chance that i get to access for free taking this into account. Il like to first check for free before upgrading

    • Hi Kavya, if you are in the USA, you should get free access. Let me check into this and have Kyle, the co-founder get back with you as soon as he can.

  35. I find it interesting that you would want to put pictures of an old white dude as yourself (though I actually understand why) yet you are actually a Kenyan from central dude.
    It would be prudent to warn people that quite a lot of the functionality (eg replying to comments and messages) is turned off after a couple of weeks under the free membership. This basically leaves free members pretty helpless as they can no longer ask questions. Pretty unfair when claiming ‘free’ I’d say because this chops guys off at the knees and basically forces an upgrade or else nothing.
    But, nice review regardless.

    • Hahaha, funny Andrew. First off, look me up on my FB site, if you wish. I am old (69) and I do make pretty decent money with what I learned at Wealthy Affiliate. The FREE membership is a good way for people to see that WA is for real and not a scam. You, of course, are one of the deadbeat broke folks that think everything should be free. Even though some benefits are only for paying members, free members do not get their legs cut off under them. They still can work on their FREE website(s), use the search bar to find a ton of FREE training AND have their profile page to asked questions. ALL members will receive email notifications that a member (free or premium) needs help, and are willing to jump right in.

      Of course, according to your thinking, IF you rent a car for 5 days, you have the privilege to drive it for as long as you wish for free, right. Thanks for your comment.

    • And how exactly do you think Kyle and Carson and many others able to teach you without earning a cents? Time is money, you know….. If we have to spend all day teaching you for free, we would not have the time to earn money in another area. No one wants to work for free.

    Hi i came across your site researching about karat bars. I love the review on WA and im interested in learning more. As afree member before upgrading can one earn?

    • Hi Jacqueline, yes you can. It will take a bit longer, but many members did upgrade only after they made some money.

  37. Hi John,

    You wrote on this page: “Wealthy Affiliate offers a Yearly Membership at $359, which amounts to $29.90 per day.”

    I guess you would want to change that into “..per MONTH”. 😉


  38. John,

    I am wondering if you make more money from commissions through people joining Wealthy Affiliate, or if you make more from the commissions through other website affiliates whether it be products or whatever else?

    • Hi James, thanks for stopping by. With this site I exclusively promote Wealthy Affiliate. There are a couple of affiliate links for 2 other, similar programs at the end of the reviews, but that’s not really promoting. I have a few other sites where I promote different products, targeting very specific niches. If you are interested in more details, come and join me at WA and we can talk. It’s free and you can check out what’s going on there. Just hit the link at the bottom of this page, and I will get a message that you have arrived.

    hi John

    Is WA available outside of the US?

  40. Hi john i recently join only cash surveys and i start feeling like they are a scam. i am at $29 dollars now but i don’t seem to qualify for more so i decide to check this review. thank you to share your experience. I have heard of wealthy affiliate before but never have paid much attention to it because I taught it was to difficult to learn. I think I will check them out

    • Hi Gloria, sorry to hear that you have the same problems I had with this Only Cash outfit. However, put it behind you and check out Wealthy Affiliate. You’ll be surprised how great it is. Log in through my site, and I will guide you through all the course lessons.

  41. Hi John,
    I came across your review while searching for home base jobs. Kind of tired of being at job interviews and be way more prepared and educated to end up doing not challenging or mechanical routine works. Very interested ting what you published, and since I’moved not generating any income right now, could you please tell me if I could generate any money joining the WA for free and then upgrade it?
    Thank you

    • I laid it all out in my review. Yes, you can and you will make money. It will not happen overnight and it will take some work, determination and the will to succeed. Just join me there and find out what’s going on. Like I said, you can take the first 10 lessons of either one of the 2 courses and build your first website at the same time. Then you can decide if you want to continue and upgrade or simply give up.

      But let me tell you that we have many members who stayed as free members for 2 or 3 months, worked on their free site (which you can do as long as you wish) and then upgraded when they felt ready to buy their own domain name. Give it a try, you have nothing to lose

  42. Hi John; nice review. Can you explain a bit more about the hosting & domain part? For instance; If I have a site on a domain hosted
    somewhere else; will I be able to use the tools & info that WA has & apply it to that site; or would it have to be moved over to their hosting?
    Also; do I have this correct: its $19 a mo., up to 25 domains; if upgrading within 1st 7 days? One more John; If you have your domain on their hosting; are you able to set up sub domains; for use as categories; under the main domain?
    BTW; I was just thinkin; if everything was free; how would anybody make any money? Ha; just thinking, ya know; anyway; waiting for your reply; Thanks, Ralph

    • Hi Ralph, thanks for stopping by. About hosting. Of course you could apply what WA teaches to your site that’s hosted some place else, as long as you have 100% access; meaning adding, removing, editing content, access to whatever SEO plugin there is. Joining WA is free and you will be able to take the first 10 lessons of any of the 2 courses WA offers, and they even give you 2 free websites, which are rubix.subdomains. Premium Membership gives you full access to all the bells and whistles. First month is discounted to $19, then it will be $47 per month. They have a yearly membership at $359 (that would be $29.50/per month) and if you take advantage of their ‘Black Friday’ offer, it would be $199 per year.
      What are the advantages of Premium Membership? Full access to everything, weekly webinars, 2 courses (1 is 5-levels with 10 lessons each, the other 6 levels with 10 lessons each) and Free hosting for up to 25 sites, even sites you may have elsewhere and transfer to WA hosting (which by the way is excellent). Come on in Ralph and take a look, you’ve got nothing to lose.

  43. Thanks for the post on Karatbars, I also have worked with several network marketing companies . Although I made money at them I never made a lot of money. One thing I have learned is, if the major source of income from the opertonity comes from recruiting someone stay away from it. I will be staying away from Karatbars and looking into Wealthy Affiliates.

  44. Hi John, i’m really sure that Kazeem is the funny man. The truth is there’s nothing free nowadays.

  45. WTRosado

    I signed up with wealthy and when I tried to log on it told me that there was no account with my name. So I signed up again and now it tells me that someone with my name is already signed up. And it continues to go round and round with the same song. Doesn’t show me much, so what is so great about it? WT

  46. Hi John,
    I’m just a starter member. Does this really work. I sincerely need something that works.
    Thank you!

    • Yes Tonja, it really does work. But not by itself. It takes work on your side, dedication and commitment. Everything else you need is right there at WA. The best training and support.

  47. Those comments were unnecessary…..WA is the best place to be at the moment….Kazeem and Roger are actually being quit stupid. The program is actually FREE, you decide if you want to go premium. Everything is correct about this review and im 15…If only you had a brain to try out a free system. Its worth it. p.s anyone with half a brain would obviously include a premium membership to get more money. I would atleast…Thanks John for your amazing review. 123cravid WA

    • Thanks for stopping by Elio. Can’t please everyone. Kazeem can’t read or is not able to comprehend what he is reading. Yes, WA is the only program that really works.

  48. There’s no doubt in my mind that there are a lot of scams out there, probably as many as there are people that want something for nothing. In most cases, you get back what you put in. Wealthy Affiliate gives you far more back than anyone could reasonably expect. It is not however a one button click to instant wealth… it takes work.
    What a concept.

  49. Roger Cote

    I was approached today by someone trying to get me involved in Karatbars. I was very excited until googling Karatbars to find out it’s a scam, then I went on to read your blog about Wealthy Affiliate. I have a question for you. Do you think that someone like myself who got scammed out of $6,500.00 with a company from Colorado to teach me how to build a website and got discouraged and gave it all up, is capable after that, to join WA and be successful. I need to make money now and not years down the road. Your opinion and advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank You

    • Hi Roger, thanks for your comment. I understand your skepticism and concerns because I was in your shoes myself at some point in time. But I did not give up and found Wealthy Affiliate. Let me be honest, it took me 5 months after joining WA to make the first dollar. Since then, I am making a full time income. WA is not a get rich quick thing…….they don’t work in first place. What I learned at WA, hard work and persistence paid off for me. You can do the same and it will not cost you thousands of dollars. Getting started is absolutely free, and there is no time limit for free members. It’s totally up to you if and when you upgrade to Premium Membership. Just give it a try and see if this is what you are looking for.

      • ya, Wealthy affiliate only cost 350 dollars a year versus some other program that charge your $2000 per year !!!! It is not a get rich quick scheme if it is that easy, everyone would have done it in a heartbeat and quit their 8-5 job the following day.

    Hi John,

    This is nice and informative post about WA which is about right but you failed to mention that it is $19 if they join within 7 days if I am not wrong. I used to be in WA but I stopped because I dont have to patient to wait for my site to get traffic. But now I feel like going back in again :).

  51. kazeem yusuf

    It is ironic that you blog about Internet sCAMS, WHILE YOUR AFFILIATE LINKS THAT YOU PROMOTE ,do exactly the same thing you accuse others of doing. is NOT FREE and requires a $47 payment MONTHLY!!.

    • Hi Kazeem, I really appreciate your comment. However, if you’ve read and understood my review, you should very well know that it is indeed FREE to join WA. I also stated VERY CLEARLY, and written in a way a 12 year old can understand, THAT WA offers a Premium Membership for $47 a month that provides a ton of great stuff which is not included in the FREE Starter Membership, like FREE hosting for up to 25 websites.

      What universe do you live in, I wonder? Is there really one that gives you ‘everything’ for free? I doubt that seriously.

    • yes, no one want to work for free either. You are FREE to try out the program but if you want to get the same level of benefit as the other members, you need to pay for it. I seriously do not think that you understand what is Affiliate Marketing.
