History of Wealthy Affiliate

A quote taken from the Wealthy Affiliate site:

“Wealthy Affiliate was created as an initiative to help other people succeed online in the same way Kyle and Carson had already experienced success. Since 2005, the platform at WA has continued to evolve and innovate at a pace that is faster than the industry.”

It has some of the most useful tools for website developing, analyzing, managing, ranking and securing.

However, it is included for free with the premium package. You also get a basic free subscription when you sign up to the free trial.

You can build up to two websites in the free trial and up to twenty-five in the premium package. I would recommend that you spend a lot of time focusing on completing the training and establishing your first site before moving onto the second.

Free access to over 3,000 website templates in the premium package. This is great because with this quantity you are likely to find one that you like. Even with the free trial you get access to quite a few different templates.

The platform is very secure. They take action against hacking and monitor activity on websites constantly.

Support is available. Building a website is made easy and possible for almost anybody of any age. There are many ways that you can reach out for support. You can contact the owners of the company directly, ask questions or join the live chat.

Wordless is the hosting platform used. I really enjoy using WordPress.

Whether it be one of the owners of the company; Kyle or Carson or another member of the community; the difficulties I had were always resolved when I reached out for support.


Website support isn’t always instant. It varies depending on what time of day you request and who is available online at that time. However, I can reassure you that the support you get will have been written by a real person.



Access to millions of domains. There are so many options.

You get help to find the right domain for you. There is a tool on the site. It is easy to use and domains - the wealthy affiliate reviewto compare other domains.

Domain prices are very competitive, under $15 per year. Many sites increase prices each year too. Wealthy Affiliate does not.


I had a brief problem with my domain but this is because I had originally registered the domain with on old email address. This is a fault of my own, not a fault of Wealthy Affiliate.


Wealthy affilaite is a helpful and social site. Building a presence on there will effect the success of your site in a positive way.


There is a large community with over 800,000 members.

The community is very positive, helpful and cares about your success.

Community is active twenty-four hours per day. Its members are worldwide.

The community encourages people to be helpful. Their contributions towards the community are noted and this motivates the members to be active members of the community.

Every time I have asked a question, somebody in the community has answered it for me.

Builing a presence in community will suport the success of your business.


Some community members are more helpful than others. This is human nature and is not a fault of Wealthy Affiliate.




It works and there is evidence. I have read many stories by members about their success. These stories will be available to you when you sign up to the free trial.

Success is limitless. You can literally decide how much you want to earn and keep working until you are earning that amount of money. Aim high!

Your success is set by you and monitored. At the start of the course you decide how much you would like to earn and are reminded of you progress regularly.


I have not made money at this point. However, it is i important to note that I have been a member of Wealthy Affiliate for about two months and this has been pretty inconsistent.

It takes time and hard work to be successful. I don’t really see this as s con though. Success should take time and work. As long as you are committed and willing, the success will come.



You can get access to a free trial that lasts a week. Lots of the tools are available in the free trial. They are limited but are capable of meeting your needs in the trail.

The premium package is always available.

You can sign up and pay for a yearly subscription and then the fees work out to about $30 per month.

In my opinion, what you get access to really is worth the money. Most comparable sites are more expensive and do not offer as much.


The premium package cost $50 per month. This can seem like quite a lot to pay if you are not making money straight away. However, I really do believe that it is a worthwhile investment and that is how it should be viewed.

This is the best site in this niche with access to a bunch of fantastic tools such as SiteRubix.

It takes time to start earning money this way, but with some patience and dedication, limitless success is achievable.

I think you’re right that you will only get out of it what you put into it. No one platform will do the drudge work for you, but a legitimate site will provide the necessary tools to get the work done.


Hi Donna,
I think some people just expect life to be given to them on a silver plate and if you are that kind of person, then this site isn’t for you.
However, if like me you are a hard worker and feel that you have been in a career that sometimes penalises people like you than you have come to the right place. You hard work here will pay off. All the best and I wish you luck with your venture.


When I first started with wealthy affiliate, I thought it was a “basic learning” platform that was going to teach basic stuff and then try to sell a $10,000 seminar that’s going to teach you the real stuff. Believe me, I’ve ran into a lot of those. Every day that I’m on wealthy affiliate, I am getting more and more convinced of the legitimacy of the platform.
So thankful that there are good people like Kyle and Carson in this world


Hi James, I couldn’t agree with you more. There are so many online companies like that. I wanted to work from home so badly and had given up searching so many times because of these companies. I was determined to find one that was good so kept coming back to look. Soo happy to have found WealthY Affiliate now. Kyle and Carson really have done a fantastic job with this. I also love how much they are online too. Kyle is on every day, working away.


Your article is illuminating and it shows that you are passionate about wealthy affiliates, thank you for your insight. I had done other internet marketing education including the recently shut down MOBE talk about over priced!!.. it was that and more there are some others out there that deliver the same spill, give a little then wack you with a constant barrage to upgrade and spend more. I think Wealthy Affiliate is the best.
