The Wealthy Affiliate Community
The first thing that hits you when you join Wealthy Affiliate, is the sense of belonging.
When I first joined the program I received personal emails from each of the owners Kyle and Carson, welcoming me, and telling me how to get started, and then this was then followed by welcome messages from other members of the program welcoming me to the community, and offering me any help should I need it.
Now I remember when I first started out in Internet Marketing – If I had a problem, or needed help with something, I had absolutely no one to turn to – I would spend hours searching forums and blogs trying to find an answer to my problem, and here was these people from the WA community offering me their help BEFORE I even had a problem. I was impressed!
In fact, you will never have any question unanswered at Wealthy Affiliate. You have the ability to connect with 100’s of other inspirational and successful Internet marketers, and even the owners themselves (Kyle & Carson) are available for support ANYTIME which is awesome.
Yes, that is right. You can communicate directly with people who have had the same difficulties as you, people who have solved these exact problems already and are willing and able to offer you a solution, along with many very successful online marketers, some of which are earning a 6 figure income every year.
Here is a screenshot of the questions page (The number beside the question, shows how many answers that it has received.)
The Wealthy Affiliate Community Will Help In The Success Of Your Website
In addition to helping each other, the community will also have a massive impact on the success of your website, as when you publish new content on your site, there is an area where you can announce your content, and ask members to critique, post comments, like and share at Social Media etc.
This is in itself gets your content seen by others and also allows your content to be quickly indexed in the search engines, this is not something that can be achieved that easily unless you already have a large list of subscribers or media followers. Of course you are expected to return the favour by placing a relevant comments on their website, but guess what, this means that you get extra exposure to your site, as the comment you leave, will include a link back to your site, which will be seen by their readers.
With 1000’s of active members, the community alone, will make your website appear popular in the search engines eyes, as you will be receiving comments to your posts, likes and shares of your content, which will have a positive effect on your site rankings. Finally in the community section, members are encouraged to share their own personal successes, be it your first first earnings, or first $1000.00 week etc – this is not to boast, but it shows newer members that are just starting out, that they are able to achieve the same and start to earn a living online, and of course, you personally get feel good factor of congratulation from other members, who praise your success!

Get Wealthy Affiliate Membership for FREE!
Everything that I have discussed in this wealthy affiliate review, comes as part of the Premium membership which costs $359.00 per year, or if you prefer a monthly option you can spread the payments by paying $47.00 per month.
This really is an outstanding price considering everything you get within the package. The keyword tool and the hosting package alone, could cost you more than the membership fee!
However there is also a Starter membership which is totally FREE OF CHARGE, with no time constraints! Here is a quick summary of the difference between the two packages.
The starter membership is not time limited, in fact you can stay a starter member for as long as you wish. You will get full functionality of the complete program for 7 days, for you to try out all of the features that are available, and then some of the functions will be restricted, as these are available to premium members only.
How Many Times Have You Been Let Down By Empty Promises?
Now if you are anything like me, you would have purchased many internet marketing programs, promising untold riches, and a millionaire lifestyles, by people standing by flash cars or mansion houses, with expertly written sales pages showing PayPal statements, with 1000’s of dollars in daily sales – supported by a dozen or so testimonials from unnamed people.
I think that I am safe in saying, that if you have purchased any of these programs, the likelihood is that they never quite delivered what you had hoped for.
I can tell you now, that you will never need to buy another overpriced eBook, program, ecourse or membership, as there is nothing that they can offer that cannot be found at Wealthy Affiliate University.
And if there is something new, worth knowing about, there are enough members in the know, who will be quick to add any new techniques to the tutorial sections. So if you are serious about building a long term business, the right way, which will give you the opportunity to earn a full time income, working from home, or wherever you want,
I urge you to take the first steps, and sign up for a free Starter Membership – You have NOTHING to lose, but everything to gain – and you will be so pleased you did!
So to conclude my review of Wealthy Affiliate. I would honestly say that it is the most ethical, complete and comprehensive affiliate marketing training available anywhere on the web today, and should be followed by Sitegap customers. amd absolutely everyone who is serious about starting or growing a long term and successful website business.
