Hello, and welcome to my post about Wealthy Affiliate for Beginners and Students alike! Now I know what you are thinking, I’m sure. ‘Oh it’s another review about some site that promises great things but never delivers, and this guy is dragging us through so that he can get some money from us signing up.
But wait just a moment! Though I do like getting money to help pay the bills (like everyone else does I’m sure), I still want to make sure I am doing it ethically and honestly. That means that this review is going to be my honest opinion of Wealth Affiliate. I[m not going to lie to you, and I’ll keep it relatively simple and fast, especially if you are in college, as I know how it can feel constantly being short on time.
I won’t lie to you, I personally love Wealthy Affiliate, and I use their site almost every single day, but in this review, you will find out why I love the site, and you will also find out some things that bother me about the site. So let’s get into it!
Before I get started, check out my about me page here, so you can get to know a little about me and why I wanted to make this site!
Wealthy Affiliate Overview
Name- Wealthy Affiliate of course!
Owners- Kyle and Carson
Overall Review- 9.8 out of 10
Pros- online support team, free starter, free website, trial period of premium, hundreds of classroom material, hours of online live training, new classrooms come up often, new live videos every week, easy to contact owners, owners are engaged with the site, very cheap premium price
Cons- At first, it is a bit overwhelming, some live videos and classes need updated from years ago, starter pack is limited
Price- Free (starter), 49 monthly, 234 every 6 months, or 359 every 12 months (premium)
Wealthy Affiliate is great for the College Student
Alright, so here’s the low down on Wealthy Affiliate. It is for the college student! Yes, you read this, if you are a College Student, or recently graduated from College, or if you are about to go into college, this is the place for you!
There is no need for any technical knowledge, so if you got a degree like I did, in Psychology or Sociology, you can still find usefulness in this site. Dare I say, this site is catered more for people like us, who just don’t have that type of knowledge. The training involved takes you step by step in each process, and never throws everything at you at once.
College students get a lot from Wealthy Affiliate because it is not time-consuming, and it is cheap. On top of this, your website could potentially bring you some ever important extra income. I know how it feels to be a broke college student. I’ve been there and done that, and I wish I had known about Wealthy Affiliate at the time.
On top of this, it just looks good on a resume and applications to other colleges to have a neat, clean and effective website. Again, for any person, in college or not, this is important in case you want to get a higher paying job. So even if working online is not your primary career goal, it can help get you there!
Wealthy Affiliate teaches you to make your Brand!
The primary appeal I had to Wealthy Affiliate is the fact that it focuses on each individual person, and knows that not one size fits all. It will help you find your passions, and show you how to turn that into a beautiful website!
I have two sites with Wealthy Affiliate, and I plan on making at least four more, and updating them once a week, and take Sunday off to do whatever. Each of those sites, though, include things that I am passionate about. This one deals with college, and trying to help those in need because I know the importance of college and the toll of college. I also have one over psychology and occultism (yeah sort of advertisement for those who want to check it out!).
My point is that you can choose what your site is over, which is a beautiful thing because it will be a business and a blog if you want it to, and you will actually enjoy writing on it!
Wealthy Affiliate is cheap- like real Cheap!
As I stated above, for a starter account, Wealthy Affiliate is free and you can have up to two websites on it! Also, you get a weeks worth of Premium for free, to see if it is something you would be interested in the long run!
The training for the Starter account is very comprehensive, and you can get started as soon as you sign up. The bad thing about the starter account is that you do not really get to do as much with the community as a whole, and you only get so many classes you can view.
However, if you decide to upgrade to premium (which I highly recommend!), you get access to all the classrooms and all the live training videos! I will tell you straight up, I love the live training videos, They have helped me rank first page in Google. I try to go through one training video a day, or at the very least, a classroom lesson a day, and then I try to incorporate what I learned into my site.
My biggest complaint, though, do come with the fact that some classroom lessons, and some live videos need to be updated. One example of this is the fact that they reference Google plus a lot. Google Plus is no longer a thing. Now granted, this is not an issue with any of the videos or classrooms that have happened after Google Plus went away, and some older ones have in fact been updated, but there are a few that still managed to slip through.
For 29- 49 dollars a month (depending on how long a subscription you choose), it is not a bad price at all! Even 49 a month is a great price and is one heck of a deal.
Strong Online Community
This is one of the best things about Wealthy Affiliate! There are so many members and each one has a different story and challenge they have all faced when joining Wealthy Affiliate. Anytime you need help, there is the live chat, and most people on there will be more than happy to help you. Every time I have used live chat, I have gotten an answer that satisfies my question!
On top of this, you can always message the owners, who will be more than willing to help in any way that they can as well! On top of that, I am always available as well, and will get back with you as soon as possible.
Members blog every day, so there is always something fun to read about, and many of them are inspirational or have some lesson you can learn to help your website. For all my readers who are online students, or have been, it is something like that!
It’s worth a shot! Seriously!
Hopefully by now you have a good idea of what Wealthy Affiliate is about and why I like them so much! They have helped me design two amazing websites, and they will continue to help me design more. I know that what they have to offer is worth it. Even though it takes time to build a base of people, in the end it pays because you are doing something you love anyhow.
But don’t take my word for it, check out this video!
I would venture to say even if I was making enough to break even only with Wealthy Affiliate, I would still do it, because the fact that you get all the training, websites, and the awesome community, is totally worth it to me! I really believe it will be for you too!
