Wealthy Affiliate is an online community with over 800,000 online entrepreneurs. All of them have the goal to build a sustainable online business with their passion. There are also many already successful entrepreneurs who make a full income with their online business.

The goal of the community is to help everybody to earn money with their passion. Task-driven lectures help you to learn while creating your first online business. 24/7 live support and the community will help you in every question you will have. In addition, there are weekly live classes about different topics in online marketing.


You can join Wealthy Affiliate for free. This is the best option for every newbie or anyone who wants to give it a try. With a free account, you can host up to 2 websites and in the first 7 days you get live help. For me, this was the best option to have a look at it without paying anything.

If the starter account is not enough for you and you want to have more access to the classrooms you can go to premium. Premium costs 49$/month or 359$/year. You can cancel your membership every month and there are no hidden costs. 359$ per year sounds a lot but this is less than 1$ per day. This is less than you pay for a coffee!

In addition, I think 359$ per year for so much information is very cheap. Think about how much you have to pay for college! Compared to college this price is really a joke. And in WA there are so many different classrooms and lectures you can work through.

How does it work?

Wealthy Affiliate helps you build your first online business with your passion. If you follow the tasks you will learn how to find a fitting niche for you, how to get traffic and how to earn money with it. This will all happen step by step with walkthrough videos.

Wealthy affiliate takes care of the hosting of your domains so you can focus on working on your business.

But of course, it is your job to get your business running. You have to keep working on it and someday you will make enough money to work from home. This is not a “get rich quick” scheme. This is for everyone who wants to build a sustainable online business.

Have you ever heard this quote:

if you found work you love you never have to work again

This is why at Wealthy Affiliate you can build your business around your passion. If you have a passion for skiing you can build your online business around skiing. If you have a passion for books you can build your online business around books.

To get your business running you have to put in the work, but if you work with your passion it’s not work anymore. Well yes, it is work but it is work that makes fun. This is that kinda work what wants you to stand up early in the morning to work on your business.

Restricted Countries

It is important to mention that the free membership is not available for every country. The reason for that (according to the owner) is that there is a lot of spam or fraud from these countries. The list of banned countries are the following:

  1. Bangladesh
  2. Egypt
  3. India
  4. Nigeria
  5. Pakistan
  6. Philippines
  7. Vietnam

If you are living in one of these countries but you still want to become a successful online entrepreneur you have two options.

  • Option A: You can start as a premium member. Yes, you have to pay to give it a try, but if you want to join Wealthy Affiliate this is your only chance.
  • Option B: You can create a free membership at Affilorama. Affilorama is like Wealthy Affiliate an online training program for those who want to become online entrepreneurs. There you can create a free membership from every country. If you want to know more have a look at my review.


I’m now a member of the Wealthy Affiliate Community for over half a year now and I never regretted my decision. At the beginning, there has been so much information that I felt a little overwhelmed but there are so many people who help you and the structured classes are really helping to focus on building your first profitable online business.

Wealthy Affiliate is definitely no scam or an untrustworthy website! There are always people who think it doesn’t work, but that is wrong. They often didn’t try it themselves or failed. And in Wealthy Affiliate, you can only fail if you stop. Sometimes it takes more time to get your business running, but if you manage to stay motivated and follow the tips of the community you will succeed!

Your Bonus

Because I want to help you to work on your dream I want to offer you a small bonus. After creating your account I get a huge discount on your first premium month! Instead of $49, the first month costs you only $19! To claim your bonus you have to create your account and I will contact you personally on how to claim your bonus.

You can cancel your subscription after the first month, no questions asked and you only have to pay for the first month. So you can give it a try for a whole month for as less as $19 and then decide, whether you want to keep working on your first online business or do something else.

I hope to see you soon on Wealthy Affiliate 🙂

I hope that you liked my review of Wealthy Affiliate. For me, this was/is a great opportunity to earn good money while going to college. In addition, I don’t have to search for a job after my graduation because I already know that I will be an online entrepreneur.

Some of my fellow students asked me if I can help them and they all starting to make their own online businesses. It is always great to see how happy people are working on their passion. I hope you can someday work with passion because life is too short for a boring or unsatisfying job!

Do you have any questions or feedback? I would be very happy if you leave me a comment below!

About the Author Fabi

While I was in college I was not amused to become a 9-5 worker. So I searched for other ways. And I found online marketing. After many failures, I finally succeeded and I was able to escape the 9-5 and live the life I always wanted. I believe that if you want something you can achieve it. And if you want to build a successful online business I can help you achieve your goal!
