Wealthy Affiliate Review 2016 : Does It Work Or Is It A Scam

If you’re looking for a legitimate way to make money online without trying to qualify for online surveys or getting paid pennies for your efforts then this review on Wealthy Affiliate might be what you’ve been looking for.

When I carried out my initial investigation on Wealthy Affiliate, it was purely to see if the company was legit for a few friends of mine, however I didn’t imagine that I was going to make much or ANY money with them when I first got started, but as it turns out – I did.

And you can see from my screenshots below I am earning between $4000 – $6000 in monthly income with Wealthy Affiliate.

Here’s a screenshot of proof of payment where I received $4,082.50 of income from Wealthy Affiliate in November 2014




Here’s another screenshot where I received $5,762.50 in December 2014



So if that’s anything to go by, Wealthy Affiliate is definitely legit and you do get paid as you can see from the pictures above.

Keep in mind that it was around the same time the previous year that I actually started the Wealthy Affiliate program, and only did it part-time (and I still do).

So imagine in a years time, what another $4 – $6K per month could do for you and your family, if you work this part-time. Sign up free here.

Believe me, a year will come and go so fast, and if you haven’t done anything new to change your current situation then you’ll be exactly where you are today, where ever that might be.

[ UPDATE – January 2016]

Now I know that the income shots I illustrated above was for the year 2014, and I just knew that someone was going to ask me if making money with Wealthy Affiliate is still valid 2016.

So in anticipation to that question, I took a couple of income screenshots towards the end of 2015, so as to make a comparison.

So here is Income proof of $6343.50 for December 2015.


And here’s income proof of $5,731.50 I received in January 2016 from Wealthy Affiliate.


What I hope to achieve in showing you income proof is that it is clear that money can be made with Wealthy Affiliate.

Which is to say that the business model works, and not just for a short period of time, but over the last 2+ years.

The significance being that most businesses fail the first two years.

And I hope you also understand that whilst I’m showing you my income proof … I’d prefer not to, simply because it’s kinda personal.

The same way it is if I asked you to show me your payslip.

But given the online money making scams out there, I feel that it’s a necessary illustration.

And I know it’s all well and good for me to say that I’m making money online, BUT what about other people …

Is anyone else making money in Wealthy Affiliate, or am I the ONLY one.

Well, I’m happy to say that I’m not the ONLY one making money in Wealthy Affiliate, as you can see from the pics below, and you’d be surprised at HOW many other people are making money too.

I know I was …




If you can follow simple instructions, and you have a computer or a laptop, then you can definitely earn money the same way I do in Wealthy Affiliate.

What is Wealthy Affiliate?

Well, unlike most internet marketing products you find online, Wealthy Affiliate is more of an interactive community of entrepreneurs helping each other make money online.

Gosh that was a mouth full.

Point is – if you’re gonna have any chance of succeeding online, then you should get as much help as possible.

And I’m not talking about just any ol help, but help from top earners and industry experts and Millionaires.

What they have managed to create at Wealthy Affiliate is not only a “how to” series of lessons, but also lessons on how everything fits together.

Once you understand how things fit together then learning each component becomes a whole lot easier, because you understand the BIG picture.

Apart from that, they have (in my opinion) the best resource available when it comes to learning affiliate marketing and that is a community of people, helping people.

In fact, the training inside span further than just catering for the newbie marketer … there’s also some really good lessons for the immediate and advanced marketers too.

You’ll learn about

  • finding a niche market
  • how to perform effective keyword research
  • how to create a blog
  • what to put on your blog
  • where to get free pictures from for your blog …

and they even give you two free blogs to get started – whhaaat.

Plus a whole lot more … you’ll understand once you get inside.

You can actually sign up for a free account here and see what WA has to offer.

In fact that’s exactly what I would do, if I was serious about evaluating them for myself that way you’ll better understand the pros and cons as it applies to you.

If you join me here then you will get my personal assistance inside Wealthy Affiliate to help you make your first sale.

What are people saying about Wealthy Affiliate?

testimonial4_001 testimonial4 testimonials3_001 testominal2 testimonial1

So why listen to me? And why were people asking me to help them make money online?

Because I earn a full-time living as an affiliate marketer, and have done so now for the past 10+ years.

So I sort of know a thing or two about making money online, which is why I know that Wealthy Affiliate will work for people who are serious about making a living online.

Here’s one of my latest income pic’s.


I show you this pic, not to brag, but to show you that it is possible to make money online.

You can also see how I got into affiliate marketing and generate tens of thousands of dollars here.

I’m NOT a guru …

Nor do I live in a multi-million dollar house or drive around in a Ferrari.

Nope, I live in a fairly modest house, two cars, two cats, with a wife and two kids.

You could kinda say that I’m an average guy, BUT I have always had dreams of working for myself and living life on my own terms, and NOT being dictated to by a J.O.B.

Case in point …

Do you still have to ask for permission to go on holiday?

Look I totally get it -there’s just somethings you have to do when you work for someone else.

Well, that’s that thing that I wanted to get away from.

Now – I go when I want, for as long as a want.

Do you have to commute long distances to work everyday?

Not me – I roll outta bed and walk to my office, which is just down the hallway. ( sometimes even before brushing my teeth – I know – gross).

Funny enough though, I get up early anyway, because I love what I do.

I love the freedom of what online marketing gives me.

Now, don’t get me wrong, although it might sound like I’m bragging, it’s the other way round – I am truely grateful that I am able to experience those simple things on a daily basis.

That’s For Real.

Wealthy Affiliate wasn’t around when I started my affiliate marketing journey, but if it was, then it would have made my life a lot easier, because the lessons taught inside the premium membership will save you a ton a time and money.

It means that you only have to concentrate on the things that work and not waste your valuable time doing the things that don’t work.

So does Wealthy Affiliate work?

With every new business opportunity online you have to assess the risk verses the reward. Wealthy Affiliate is no different.

So whats the risk of joining Wealthy Affiliate?

Well at the moment – it’s a big fat zero – why – because its free.

What’s the reward, ummm financial independence, freedom to do what you want, when you want, to become your own boss, to live the life of your dreams.

What if it doesn’t work?

Well, that’s really up to you … you have seen others succeed with Wealthy affiliate here, so why wouldn’t you?

My advice would be to just give it a go – for FREE.

Join me here and get started today

Here are the two things that will ensure you start your journey off right

1) Get together with like minded people that are willing to help you every step of the way

Well what can I say about this.

Kinda speaks for itself really … doesn’t it.

Listen, I NEVER got any real online success until I joined a community of like minded people, where we shared our experiences both good and bad and learnt from each other.

Doing it on your own is just too dam hard man.

There’s definitely power in a community, which is why forums exist.

But not just any community … a community that shares both your financial and personal aspirations to make money online.

Wealthy Affiliate has such a community, where participation and helping others is encouraged … and is available 24/7.

Which means no matter when you’re able to work on your online business, be it in the morning afternoon or evening there’s always help available.

I’m not talking email help either, where you have to wait for a reply 24 hours later, I’m talking about instant chat sessions. Which means that you will often get help within a few minutes of asking for it.

Trust me you’ll need help from time to time.

Everyone does – even me.

Cause like any business, there’s always gonna be road blocks and the community will help you to push through them.

2) A Proven Blueprint

Following a proven step by step plan of making money online will ensure that you will be successful – right?

The reality is – the only one that will ensure you will succeed is – YOU.

However, following a plan that WORKS, will get you there faster and a lot easier than doing it by yourself.

I mean time is precious, so why not spend what little you have on doing the things that works, instead of the many things that don’t work.

Kyle and Carson the product owners, have spend years perfecting their money making system, and over the years through trial and error broken down each step into an easy to understand course.

These are broken down into classrooms.

I haven’t seen as many success stories and testimonials in one place.

How To Get Started With Wealthy Affiliate

So if you’ve been sitting on the fence about getting started with Wealthy Affiliate, then I hope that I have given you enough insight into whether it would be the right fit for you.

Here’s the new deal with Wealthy Affiliate.

How to get the most out of your free membership.

As you can see Wealthy Affiliate solves these problems, however, if you’re still not convinced then I urge you to try it out over the next 7 days. If it’s not for you then no worries.

    you rock dude

  2. Luis Cabrera says:

    Hey Frank… Great WA review!

  3. Jason says:

    How did you make your money from wealthy affiliate to show in this review (showing in paypal). Before you wrote this review?

  4. Duane Bona says:

    Hey Frank, I am writing to you because I have also been struggling with Inbox Dollars. As you mentioned they should have called it Inbox Pennies. After trying the inbox site and finding out that more than half the time I’m not qualifying for the surveys, I have become quite frustrated. Also the spinning billy is a barrel of laughs! Another reason I am contacting you is in the hopes that Wealthy Affiliate is on the up and up. I have tried a few other online money makers that I payed for, but backed out after learning more about them. I am disabled and in dire need of more supplemental income. Hoping this site is really legit. Hopes for the future, Duane.

  5. Jo says:

    Do people have to become a premium member of WA in order to make the money like what you do????


    • Frank says:

      Hi Jo,

      You don’t have to, but it certainly does help A LOT for these two reasons.

      1) The commissions paid out are higher for premium members.
      2) The training in the premium membership teaches you (in depth) how to do it.

  6. mahmood says:

    That’s amazing commissions. I agree with you that wealthy affiliate is awesome. I’ve been there for 9 months now and I’ve learnt much.
    I would like to congratulate you for those amazing payments you got from wealthy affiliate.
    Well done.

  7. James Bowen says:

    Looking foward to making some real ? mega dollars!!

  8. Laria says:

    I have learned a lot from wealthy affiliate, I just don’t like that I can’t be paid via check. PayPal only and I am having issues with PayPal so that’s a no no when it comes to promoting WA

  9. James says:

    Hi Frank,

    Is it possible to do this on a “part time” basis, eg. not have to give up your day job first? Am willing to learn, and have some ideas for a website. Thx, James

    • Frank says:

      Yes James, in fact most folks start off this way.
      The training is set up so that you can build your business at your own pace, which gives you the flexibility to either add to your current income or once you have surpassed it you can drop it altogether. Up to you at the end of the day, but it good to have these options.

  10. faith says:

    Hi Frank,

    Am a student who wants to make extra cash, the thing is have never done any online writing and would like to start, so is it good for me to start with WA and get the help i need or with iwriter??

    • Frank says:

      If you have never done any online writing before then in my opinion Wealthy Affiliate would be the best place to start because they have training that shows you exactly how to write effectively, both to rank in the search engines and to engage with your visitors.

  11. Kevin says:

    Hi Frank,

    I have been in the internet marketing space for a while now, spend thousands to be “coached” to make money. Made some but still hasn’t gotten back what I spent for and at this point I don’t have much to spend left. So, searched around and WA seems to have a good offer.

    But, after all the reviews I read, it seems that the only way to make big bucks from WA is through its own affiliate programs. This doesn’t sit well for someone like me who wants to do affiliate in other niches and still earn more than my last corporate job. And… I’m afraid that I would still need to spend a lot of money from media buying (i.e. solo, ads, pps) just to earn back and more.

    Is my perception right or wrong?

    • Frank says:

      Hi Kevin,

      Your perception is wrong.

      If you can figure out how to develop traffic (visitors) to your website and learn how to convert those visitors into sales then you can make money in any niche. A lot of people get this process wrong and end up not making any money. And one of the biggest reasons is because have not correctly identified the right group of people to focus their efforts on.

      WA is in the make money niche, which, by the way, is one of the hardest niches to convert visitors into sales, for obvious reasons. But I can easily take what I term as this “traffic / conversion model” and do the same thing in any niche, like I have done here albeit it on a much smaller scale.

      Once you have developed the traffic, then its a case of finding the right offer to convert to that audience.

      WA will teach you how to develop the traffic and also how to convert the traffic in any niche.

      Hope that helps.

  12. Stephen says:

    Hi Frank,

    A nice Wealthy Affiliate Review. It is nice to know that you are making money. I have been with Wealthy Affiliate for a year and I am making some money but it is not as good as I would like.
    I am still at the learning stage. Do you have any advice for me?

    • Frank says:

      If you’re making a little bit of money then you’re off to a good start. You need to analyze the process that has made it happen and then simply scale it.

  13. James Boucher says:

    How much time you have to put in to this to make $3000 to $4000 a Month per week and how long to get up to speed if your not a guro on the PC but your smart and your in finance for over 20 years

    • Frank says:

      Your success depends on multiple variables James, like how much knowledge or have (or don’t have currently), how much work you put into developing your business, how consistent you are, how long it takes for you to learn the process and how you put the process to work. Some folks can start earning money in as little as a few weeks, some months and others several months. It really just depends on the individual and how motivated and committed they are.

  14. Aasiyah says:

    Hi Frank,

    Hope all is well with you. I would like to thank you for the very helpful review. It’s been about a week now I have been researching Wealthy Affiliate. Should I, shouldn’t I, should I shouldn’t I. I believe I read your review about 4x. I’m excited to say I”M GOING IN!! I have no clue what my niche, skills, etc is but I know my goal is to help people and make some money doing it. I’m ready to put in the work and see results… (hopefully)

    I look forward to speaking with you soon.

    See you on the other side…here I goooo….

    Thanks again,

  15. Charlette says:

    Hi Frank I just read ur review..I knw ntn abt the program I’m a stay at home mom and i definitely would love to gv it a try..only av a smart phn with good internet connection but no computer is tht possible..I’m not living in the US but in the Caribbean..pls tel me how…

    • Frank says:

      Hi Charlette, nice to meet you.
      You can watch the lessons and participant in the classroom and forum discussions with a mobile device, but it is best if you have either a laptop or a desktop computer, given the nature of the tasks you have to perform.

  16. Jeff says:

    Thanks for all your time and information Frank. I have great job but want to give this a try as a secondary income. I’m quite a motivated individual.

  17. Evans says:

    Hi Frank
    I’m a student and a complete newbie to this online business. Don’t have the slightest idea how to put together a website or blog or write content, let a alone drive traffic to them to earn money, sounds like a mountain to climb. Nonetheless I am an internet addict(could spend close to 10hrs online daily). Really desire to be a super affiliate marketer and make money online, can WA hold me by the hand and take me through to my destination with my zero experience?

  18. Erin Proctor says:

    Hi! Can you use WA to promote your own MLM business?

  19. Wilmer says:

    Hi Frank. Thanks for the reviews. I am really concern about signing up with WA. it says the free membership is not allowed in my country (Philippines). It forces me to pay for premium membership. So.. do you know what should I do? I just wanted to try this first before going to premium membership.

    Hope to receive a reply soon. Thank you

  20. Michael says:

    Excellent post, Frank! Thank you sharing, I will check it out.

  21. Darachea says:

    I will do the same as what you did.

  22. Forrest Finch says:

    As a new member to Wealthy Affiliate, I feel the need to chime in, and say that it’s the absolute best training platform that I’ve ever seen.
    I’ve learned so much in just a few short Months.
    I currently have a couple of websites that are still under construction, and both are getting visitors from the search engines.
    And, that’s what it’s all about for me.

  23. Jamal says:

    Great Review Frank, Well, Can I start earning from the fist month, I have a huge knowledge about internet marketing, and I have my passion nich, but I haven’t earned a penny yet, because all need to pay for traffic, I mean other platform, I have not tired WA, So any Recommendation will be appreciated.

    • Frank says:

      Hi Jamal,
      It’s possible to earn money in your first month depending on your current knowledge of Internet Marketing, but most people take a little longer.

      What I have found is that a lot of people who have been in the Internet Marketing space for a while, have picked up a lot of bad information which ultimately leads to no or poor progress, because they are stacking incorrect information on top of incorrect information which goes no where.

      My advice would be to sign up free, and just try it out.

  24. Marvin says:

    Your review of Wealthy Affiliate is somewhat different indeed Mr. Frank!
    I like the way you lay out your proof of income and testimonials. It’s simple, but it rocks.

    I also created a review of the same program.

    And 1 more, I actually love the simplicity of your website Mr. Frank. You inspire me.

    Great Job Sir.

  25. David says:

    Hello Mr.Frank! Am a newbies in the internet marketing world. please is this great opportunity open to Africans (Nigerians precisely)? thanks! waiting in anticipation to here from you soon

    • Frank says:

      Yes, I believe the opportunity is open world wide, however, free membership is not open to all countries. You’ll find out if this applies to your country, as soon as you try to sign up free.

  26. pallavi says:

    hello i am student i dont have any idea about affiliate i am interested to make money, then how can i go for premium.if i join as free, is it compulsory to to go for premium.. is any knowledge is necessary to become a affiliate

    • Frank says:

      Nope, you don’t have to become a premium member. You can remain as a free member for as long as you want.

  27. alnam runh says:

    I hope I can be successful at this.

  30. mart says:

  31. Pete says:

    Excellent review of Wealthy Affiliate here. I’ve only just started on my own journey into online marketing and affiliate marketing. I can definitely see that there is a long road ahead of me, but I think it’ll be worth it in the end. Thanks for the great information!

  32. Iman says:

    hi, is it possible to transfer a blog from blogger to WA.

    • Frank says:

      Yes, it is a very easy process. You simply use the export function from blogger and then use an import function to WordPress.

  33. Belén says:

    Hello Frank!
    So i just found about WA and you review and it sounds very promising, but there is one question that I need to know: do you have to be at a specific age to join? Or is it open for any age?

    • Frank says:

      Hey Belén,
      There’s no age restriction in joining Wealthy Affiliate, we actually have members as young as 15. Having said that, SOME affiliate programs do have age restrictions, but there’s literally 100’s to choose from, WITHOUT age restrictions.

  34. Jessica says:

    I was worried that WA might be a scam so I’ve been doing a lot of research on it and can’t really find anything bad or indicating that it is a scam. So I’m going to try it out since I can’t see any consequences of doing so since membership is free. So thanks a lot for the review!

  35. Ernest says:

    Hey Frank im also looking forward to join WA the review sounds promising thanks for the great opportunity

  36. jack johnson says:

    am going to try it

  37. Kent says:

    Hey Frank
    Can i contact you via g+ or Facebook for more info on WA please?

  38. Stephen Purdy says:

    Hi Frank great site

    I know this will sound like a silly question but once you join as a free member of WA can you earn commission from your referrals or do you need to upgrade first?

    • Frank says:

      Hey Stephen,

      It’s not such a silly question actually. It was one of the first questions I asked before getting started.

      The answer is, yes, you can earn a commission as a free member, but you will earn twice as much as a premium member.
