I am writing this post to give you a 2018 Review of Wealthy Affiliate, and to help you answer the question “is Wealthy Affiliate for Beginners?”.
That was a question I asked myself in the beginning of August, 2017. I joined with the Free Starter membership a few days later, and never looked back. Everything I am about to pass on to you is from my personal experience with WA.

Of particular importance to a Beginner like you (and me) is that the training provided by Wealthy Affiliate is unparalleled in the industry.
Training ranges from Certification courses/Lessons, in-depth posts, videos and blogs by the owners Kyle and Carson themselves, to the same from WA members themselves, on all subjects necessary for our success. Live classes via WAbinar are presented weekly, with live Q&A.
Wealthy Affiliate manages your website hosting on WordPress. There are no up-charges with your WordPress Hosting–all is included.
You can create your website in under a minute. Backups of your website are done daily. There are layers of security that protect your website.
The Site Content Editor (I am using it to write this review) gives access to over ONE MILLION free images.
You will be able to look under the hood (bonnet?), kick the tires, sit behind the wheel and check out the trunk (boot?) WITH NO MANDATORY COMMITMENT OR CREDIT CARD REQUIREMENT!!! Yes, I spent some time in the UK (long ago, in a universe far, far away)…great country and people, wonderful memories.
Jaaxy, the outstanding keyword research tool (500 million keywords found!!!), is included with your Wealthy Affiliate membership. Search online for millions of niches.
Jaaxy’s SiteRank feature allows you to see where your post ranks on Google, Bing and Yahoo.
Wealthy Affiliate has a team of 25 people working to provide 24/7 support. A Question and Answer section, Live Chat section, and excellent Site Support provide response to questions and problems as they arise, and all contribute to the excellent Member Community Support enjoyed in Wealthy Affiliate. .
Mentoring is very strong in WA–I have been supported personally by Owners Kyle and Carson, as well as my mentor Chris.
You can build your own support group with “Follows” of other members, which steers their posts and blogging to your email in-box.
Wealthy Affiliate offers Members an Affiliate Program to earn $$ by promoting WA.
And then there is Vegas!!! Ambassador-level members are invited to an all expense-paid WA conference in Las Vegas at the end of the year.
Absolutely, and not JUST for Beginners, either. WA will put you ahead of the competition regardless of your experience level.
Feel “free” to check out Wealthy Affiliate for “free”…while I think the best value is the Premium level, you will have the opportunity to decide that for yourself, WITH NO MANDATORY COMMITMENT OR CREDIT CARD REQUIREMENT!!!
