Introduction to Wealthy Affiliate

Wealthy Affiliate (WA) is the premier online marketing business in the world and provides a total package of training, resources and support for those wanting to earn income through the internet, either as additional income to top up their monthly salary or to build significant wealth over time.

The WA model is unique in many ways not least because it offers extensive Start Up training and resource for free and a single price, relatively low cost membership ($49/ month) if you wish to really accelerate your business.

I initially reviewed WA from a very personal perspective when I was diagnosed with Adult ADHD and wanted to use the opportunity to find a fulfilling job and career that played to my strengths.  WA provides a full service with state of the art platform, fully structured training, support and an amazing community network that really helped me launch my business.

I am interested to hear from you (whether you have ADHD or not) and any comments at all that you have on WA.  Pleased to hear any feedback or views.

Pros and Cons

Pros

  • All levels of training from beginner to experienced
  • All types of training including video, tutorials and classes
  • Instant, active community of 10,000’s members ready to support
  • 24/7 live interactive help and support
  • 2 free websites
  • Access to industry experts
  • State of the Art hosting

Cons

  • So much material and features can be initially overwhelming
  • If you have ADHD and a tendency for hyper focus it can keep you occupied for hours. If you have other commitments this will need to be managed
Who Is It For?

WA is for everyone who wants to run a successful online business.  It will appeal to the absolute beginner as it has a easy step-by step approach.  It can also be used by someone who currently has an online business who wants to really optimise their business.  WA can also help those whose current business does not have a significant online presence and who want to maximise this opportunity but don’t know how. I believe that those with Adult ADHD like me who were looking to start an online business, without giving up the day job immediately its an ideal way of building a business part time.

Training and Tools

Training

The training is comprehensive to say the least.  Most importantly it is organised, well structured and designed to be used at the pace you want to learn.  It has material from the absolute basics, it doesn’t assume you know anything, right through to the very advanced for those with considerable experience already.  The amount of training is impressive and includes:

  • Combined tutorial and video training – appealing to different styles
  • Task based learning – that ensures knowledge and learning is embedded
  • Live weekly training sessions – provides specific focus and a ‘deeper dive’
  • Classrooms – organised topic based sessions
  • Interactive discussions, Q&A – to get help from the community or experts

Tools

The set of tools available, like the training, is comprehensive. It seems nothing has been forgotten.  There are helpful suggestions as to other tools available as well as providing exactly what is needed with WA itself.  The range of tools include:

  • Website builder – WordPress Express
  • Keyword and competition research tool
  • Low competition, selected keyword lists
  • Access to over 2000 website themes
  • Rapid writer for more content

Everything that is needed has been thought about.  It is truly comprehensive when it comes to tool and training

Support

If you ever stuck at all the 24/7 support system and community are an exceptional resource.  Trying to find help online through Google, for example, is sometimes daunting, time consuming and you are never quite certain that its the right support.  The community at WA is huge, very active and expert.  There is someone to help you any time of day or night with any issue small or large.  The support is multi-faceted and includes:

  • Live 24/7/365 support
  • Interactive discussion
  • Live Q&A
  • Private 1:1 support from experts
  • Access to a large community of specialists and experts

The support is impressive, instant and having access to the real experts is reassuring
