There are definitely lots of ways to make money online, and one of them is affiliate marketing.
This is my Wealthy Affiliate Review of the year, very helpful for beginners looking for the best platform to start an online business.
In my pursuit to find out how to earn money online as an affiliate marketer, I have encountered several programs and platforms that I thought would be “it” but unfortunately didn`t work as I expected.
The reasons were: It was either a scam or paid membership which asked more and more payments to get to the lessons and needed to pay additional fees in order to use their tools to go to the next level (upscaling tactic). Or programs that promised getting rich easy and fast – which didn’t take me anywhere at all!
Because of this, “been ther, than that” idea was already in my mind. I became more skeptical whenever another program opened up to my search engines.
So, I tried to be more careful this time and made sure that the program which I will join next will meet all my CRITERIA:
- First and foremost, It should not ask for my credit card to join.
- It should be FREE to START, just to look around and see and “feel” if it is a good program for me.
- It should have mentors willing to help and support (I`m a newbie, I need support!!)
- It should have good ratings for hosting, and using adequate tools.
- It should be owned by people who are easily available. Real people!
- And most importantly, it should provide good reviews in the internet (little to no complaint at all!)
Heck! Hard to find?
I thought so too. Not until I found WEALTHY AFFILIATE in my google search!
IT DEFINITELY FITS ALL MY CRITERIA. AND MUCH MORE!
What is interesting for me is that this platform does not promise you a “getting-rich-easily” idea.
It got me.
And so, I signed up for a free membership.. And the rest is history.
I tell you, this platform is definitely a good way to start learning about affiliate marketing. Joining in this community is like no other. It helps me build my own business considering I am not even a tech-savvy.
Myaffiliatediary.com is my second website made in this platform, a website I`ve created as a result of their training programs.
Here`s how I am going to give my review about Wealthy Affiliate. I will try to be very detailed and comprehensive so you will know what to expect when you join this community.

Introduction to Wealthy Affiliate
So, as I have said earlier, I signed up for free as a starter membership (NO CREDIT CARD required). Then, the journey started.
When I got in, created my profile, and guess what? The owners, Kyle and Carson sent me welcome messages. Even though they might be automatic answers, I felt good about it.
Then there was this dashboard, a sort of like a chat room of sort! Members welcoming me. Giving me motivations, and congratulating me for the step that I just did!
Wow! What a very welcoming community!
There were also members sending messages of help and support. Someone asked for some question, an answer was received right away. There were blogs by members sharing their success and ideas for the whole community to read.
Eventhough it was a FREE MEMBERSHIP, I received warm welcome messages from the community. It didn’t matter if you are a free member or premium member – the whole community is there to support!
I felt at home. This is the platform I was looking for.
So, as for my free membership, I am entitled to their GETTING STARTED lesson and creating 2 WEBSITES using their tools.
I took the first lessons and I CREATED my FIRST WEBSITE!! I was amazed!
I can stop here, if I want to, and just continue on as a free member. I have my website anyway!
But no, I would like to continue and learn more. If i was able to accomplish something by just being a free member, what more if I signed up for PREMIUM MEMBERSHIP! AND SO I DID!
It was the best decision I did for my online career!
