The Wealthy Affiliate Review 2016
I wrote a review for Wealthy Affiliate more than two years ago and so many things have changed on the platform I thought I’d write a new review rather than just update the old one.
I’m still advocating Wealthy Affiliate but now I have much more online knowledge so I have the benefit of experience and success behind me.
So, here is
The Wealthy Affiliate Review 2016

What is Wealthy Affiliate?
In short, Wealthy Affiliate is a learning platform.
Whatever you need to know about online marketing and building an online business can be found within the Wealthy Affiliate walls.
Kyle and Carson, the creators and owners of Wealthy Affiliate, are still to be found helping members in their quest for online success and will always be there for help and guidance – or a gossip!
It is so much more than that now.
Below is a brief outline of all the different components that make up Wealthy Affiliate.
These are the areas that I love so are in my order of preference.
Above are some screenshots of Live Chat in Action.
Without doubt, this is my favourite area and, actually, always has been.
I’ve made so many online friends here.
As members of Wealthy Affiliate we are on hand 24/7 in Live Chat for advice, help or just a chat.
This is the ‘hub’ of the site and the community spirit is just AWESOME.
Every Friday, Jay conducts a live webinar (WAbinar or WAbby!)
These are worth their weight in gold.
Luckily, each one is recorded and can be watched at any time and as many times as needed.
I live in UK and the live broadcast goes out at 1a.m my time and, believe me, I’m out for the count by then. I never miss a webinar though.
Jay covers everything from Local SEO to Marketing to Branding to Social Media to Content, oh the list goes on.
Jay is a mine of information and his training is delivered in a way everyone can understand.
Certification Course and Bootcamp
Your first forays into Wealthy Affiliate can be rather overwhelming as there is sooooo much information.
Starting at the Certification or Bootcamp Course makes your journey easy. Kyle leads you through the process of setting up your website and adding content to it as well as the other information needed to start your business online.
Kyle is there to lead the way with text, video and actions.
The great thing about the courses is you can revisit them whenever you a refresher and take as long as you like to complete them.
New modules are being added on a regular basis and updates are continuous.
As well as Kyle, Carson and Jay’s training, each Premium Member can provide training for members.
Believe it or not, Members who create training can earn credits so it is a great way to earn as well.
Whatever you need to know , you enter into the space bar and loads of training, posts and questions appear on the subject. Just to show you what I mean I’ve been having an issue with Google Webmaster Tools. I put this in the search bar and these results popped up.
Obviously, I no longer have any problems concerning Google Webmaster Tools.
As well as hosting, one of the newest facilities at Wealthy Affiliate is the option to buy domain names from within the site.
This eliminates the need to buy from one place and then have your domain transferred to W.A – a procedure I never enjoyed doing.
This is different to the excellent support from other members. This is the support from the ‘tech guys’
Any problem with your website, just send a message and they sort it out for you.
Personally I’ve never had to wait more than a few minutes before one of the support team have got back to me.
