Wealthy Affiliate University Review-Can They Really Teach You Success

Thank you for checking out my Wealthy Affiliate University review. Have you heard of it? Have you heard of Wealthy Affiliate? The story is that Wealthy Affiliate University can teach you how to succeed in affiliate marketing.

It is not only for the newbiest of newbs, but is also for those with experience as well as everyone in between. I can vouch for it being beginner friendly. When I first joined 6 months ago I didn’t even really know what affiliate marketing was.

I have been there 6 months and I figure it is time for me to give my honest opinion. I have had plenty of time to do the training and implement what I have learned.

Is It REALLY User Friendly

When I initially joined I was still in my skeptical stage of course. To top it off I really had no idea of what I was to do or where to start.

The community sort of dog piled me (in a good way). I was welcomed by many and my mentor was among the ones welcoming me and filling me in on where to start.

It was AMAZING! I started my training and was flabbergasted when I realized that the training was given be one of the co-owners, Kyle. Below is the Get Started Video if you would like to check it out.

Wealthy Affiliate Walk through

As you can tell from watching the video. Kyle explains everything in a way that almost anyone can understand. Even if you don’t know anything about building and online business.

Kyle does most of the training for wealthy Affiliate University. There are videos to ensure you get a visual sense of how to do what he is explaining.

Best Training Platform Around

There are so many great benefits to the training provided at Wealthy Affiliate University. I have been a part of other programs that didn’t even come close to what I was offered here.

I am sure you are wondering how I was a newbie/beginner if I had tried other programs in the past. Let me ask you this. Have you tried other programs? If you have, then I am willing to bet you felt like you were thrown to the wolves.

Someone with experience may have had an easier time, but if you are doing it for your first time, the training on other programs are not beginner friendly like they claim to be.

You are left not knowing where to start let alone what to do. If you do find your way, you can’t understand because the person doing the training doesn’t even sound human, and the videos only show partial steps that you need to take.

The training is out-of-date, they don’t SHOW you how to properly complete the task that you are learning. Setting up a website shouldn’t consist of coding or using complicated downloaded themes.

That is for the stone age. Let alone the price you have to pay for everything to create your business, providing you do understand what to do and how to do it.

This is why I was still a beginner when I happened to find Wealthy Affiliate. I had almost given up, as I had searched for years, here and there. If you would like to know where I am coming from, feel free to read about me.

The training at Wealthy Affiliate University, is nothing like that. You are provided with step by step training by video and text with pictures. They recently developed a new UX which is even more beginner friendly than it was before.

You can practically get to everywhere you need to go within the platform from your main page. How awesome is that? The walk through video shows you where everything is. The video was updated when the new platform was released.

There are training videos to go with each step. You also have boxes that you check off so that you know where you left off. This will also allow the system to keep up where you are at with the training.

When you want to go back to where you were it will show you, just click on it and boom, your there. As a premium member, you can go through the training however many times you need.

There are also weekly live training done by Jay. He gives you extra training for many items that you cover in training. Another added bonus is that there are members who also create training.

I can feel this entire page talking about the training. I am not kidding when I say that you will learn EVERYTHING that you need to know about getting your website/business up and going.

Building A Website With Ease-Meet WordPress

WordPress is by far the best and easiest website builder by far. I once had to try to build a website, as a beginner, with Everything WordPressthe Adobe Dreamweaver. That was NOT happening.

During my beginner days here, I was laughing when I heard Kyle say that I was going to set my website up in less than 30 seconds.

It was no joke. He was serious. I could not believe my eyes. I was so impressed with myself and with Kyle. After all the programs I had tried throughout the years, I had finally created my first website at the age of 48. Heck yeah.

Choosing my theme was a different story, because of the stress I put on myself due to this being something I had never done before.

Kyle said not to put a lot of time into it. Just pick one that will work with your niche. I decided after awhile to take his advice, and I love the theme I have. It isn’t complicated and does what I need.

You will have thousands of themes to choose from (as a premium member) and you can change them if you decide you don’t like the one you chose.

You will have access to tons of free plugins and widgets, everything you need to get your site the way you want it. You can add social media buttons that will show up on every page/post you create, with the ability to share right from the post/page itself.

Everything is included in the membership if you join the premium membership at Wealthy Affiliate University. No hidden fees and no upsells. Of course there are pro versions available, but I haven’t had the need to buy any of them.

Where else can you get everything WordPress has to offer (included in the premium for WAU a low monthly cost0? Not to mention getting the All In One SEO pack

Getting Traffic

When I said I could fill this page with just the training, I wasn’t joking. The team (owners and members) at this university, know their stuff.

Getting social is one of the lessons you will have. Learning where and how to get traffic is a huge bonus when it comes to setting up your online business.

There is even extra training from members, where they show you what has helped them that others mat not have tried or even thought about. They give you ideas that may even allow you to generate your own idea.

Social Media Engabing
I am telling you, I have never experienced anything like this place before. I have learned that FaceBook isn’t just a place for family and friends, but your business as well. The same with the other social media sites.

You will learn how to leverage your social media site in order to help your website/business grow. I am sure you have social media accounts, or you at least know that EVERYONE is social these days.

Kyle adds more and more tutorials to help you in every way with using social media. He not only teaches you how to use it to your advantage but you will also learn what they mean for your business.

Learning The Affiliate Way

Affiliate marketing is on the rise as well as the amount of people looking to get involved in and building their business around it.

There is a certification course to teach you everything you need to know about building your online marketing business from the ground up.

Right down from picking your niche to how to make the sale. There are 5 courses and 10 lessons in each course. Each lesson has tasks for you to complete which will help assist you in implementing what you have learned and creating a successfull business.

The quality of the training the videos and the tools to build your business are priceless. Learning about keywords, how to get access to over a million products and even how to set up and run a profitable business.

Getting training in consumer purchasing even, to help you prepare for building a profitable business. The training is limitless. All it takes is for you to follow it and implement it. Take a look the video below that was designed by Loes, an awesome member with incredible talent.

In affiliate marketing you don’t need to house any products, deal with the payments for them or shipping the products. All you have to do, is decide how YOU want to help others.

Wealthy Affiliate will teach you how to pick the best affiliate programs to join for free as well as helping you to decide on the products to promote that fit your niche.

You are taught everything for an affordable price that hasn’t gone up and doesn’t go up. You would pay more for just the training at other programs.

Why It Is The Foundation To Build Your Business

Whether you are new to affiliate marketing, have had your feet wet in it before, or have become quite the expert. You want the foundation for your business to be a supportive one.

The foundation needs to be able to support not only the beginning of your business, but support every branch of your business as it grows. No matter how many websites/businesses you create your support is there.

With the university, you will get the best training in the business. Kyle and Carson have been in the business for many years.

Their success didn’t happen overnight, nor did it happen because of them running a get rich scheme. Their success came from their willingness and desire to teach others.

Their type of leadership, spills over to the members of the university. They have taught the members not only about success, but about caring as well.

This is why you have members who help with creating their own training, in order to help others. The community there is filled with members from all over the world. Young, old and every age in between.

They are there because they have the best teachers that are able to teach them in a way that is easy to learn. The owners are active within the community. especially Kyle. Carson is behind the scenes a lot leading the tech team.

You won’t find that anywhere either. Not only do they give you the training they give you the help you need. They built a caring community who is also there to help and encourage you.

They are there from the start of your training, the beginning of your implementation of what you have learned, through the building of your business and for it’s success.

Once you finish the training, you are still supported. You can now venture out with starting new websites from the 25 free domains and 25 paid domains, you still have free hosting, security and support (with premium membership.

No Longer A Newbie

I am not an internet guru by any means, but I do know a lot more than I ever thought I would. My learning comes at a slow pace and I need to repeat the process a few times in order for it to sink in.

I am able to do that. I can go back at anytime I need a refresher course. Kyle and Carson are constantly working to improve an already state-of-the-art platform in order to give us members a more valuable learning experience.

They do so much for their members, helping you set goals and helping you to reach them. For them to have gotten me this far, they have really done the impossible. If you knew me personally, you would see the truth in this.

I get to work from my home and share a program that I truly believe in. I would not tell you about it other wise. I don’t believe in lying or taking advantage of others. I believe in being honest and helping whoever I can, the same as Kyle and Carson.

Your Success Depends On You And How Bad You Want It

Kyle Showin Support

I have created my website (the one you are currently on. Feel free to look around), I have posts that are ranked number 1 in Google, Yahoo and Bing. My ranking in WAU has recently become an Ambassador. That is all because of the opportunity I have been given by becoming a member to something I strongly believe in.

I love helping others which helped me to earn Ambassador. My business was built in order to help others. It’s purpose is to show you that you can do it to. No matter who you want to help or how, you can do it.

You can join for free, in order to test drive the program. It wasn’t created this way to “lure” you in. It was created this way to insure that it doesn’t cost you if you decide it isn’t for you.

A writer, I am not. When you believe in something and have a true desire to help others, and have support, you can make the impossible a reality. The same as I have done.

If you want to give it a go, you have nothing to lose. Check it out for free. When you do, all I ask is that you promise me, that you will come back and let me know what you thought about it. Thumbs up or thumbs down, I want to know.

If you decide to stay, you will have my help every step of the way as well as the help of hundreds of thousands of like-minded individuals who also want to see you succeed.

I am a family oriented mother and love being involved with my little ones. My husband is the best guy a girl could ask for. I love helping others which is why I created this site. I know what it is like to NEED to work and earn an income, but not be able to do it outside the home. I am now able to help others find work they can do from home. And I love it.


  1. Hello Lee Ann,
    Great article and I say this emphatically. I am also a member of the Wealthy Affiliate community and I love it! I have so MUCH current and useful information as well as having met physically and other members by phone, comments and so forth. What is really great is the fact that the community is so talented and so helpful – this is priceless.
    I fully agree with your article – I started off as a TOTAL newbie and have evolved 360 degrees and am still evolving. The learning possibility is endless once you get by the learning curve and teething pains.
    Much success to you, Lee Ann, or rather, continued success.

    • Thank you Michelle for confirming what I have written about all the advantages of Wealthy Affiliate University.
      I am happy to hear from other members and there likes about the program.
      I really hope to get others to check it out instead of the other programs with less to offer and yet cost more.
      You know as well as I do that we have to put the commitment and effort into our business in order to make it successful, but when you have everything you need, that becomes easier to do.
      Wishing you much success in all you do.
