Is Wealthy Affiliate worth it?

I joined Wealthy Affiliate as a free Starter Member in March 2014 and became a Premium Member less than a week later… 3 years on I'm still here. I think that says a lot about whether or not I think it's worth it! 🙂

Honestly I've never seen anyone offer as much value as Wealthy Affiliate does, and at a fraction of the cost of all these programs that never deliver results.

Is Wealthy Affiliate a scam?

This is an easy one – no it's not.

I wouldn't have been a paid member for the last 3 years if it was 🙂

Wealthy Affiliate say very clearly – what they teach isn't a ‘secret Google-busting system‘, or a ‘get rich quick while you sleep at the single click of a mouse‘ kind of thing – they only teach REAL online business.

Right from day one you are taught that if you want your business to succeed you're going to need to work at it – just like any other kind of business.

But again, as I say, you don't have to take my word for it – you can try it out and decide for yourself.

This is what I like about Wealthy Affiliate – everything is open and transparent.

Though you have the option of upgrading to premium if you wish, there is certainly no pressure put on you to do so. In fact, Kyle and Carson openly say you can build a profitable online business just with the free starter account and your 2 free websites.

Everyone in the community is so incredibly helpful and friendly and there's been many times in the last 3 years where I've spoken to co-founders Kyle and Carson directly. You will always find them hanging around the live chat areas answering questions or helping people out.

So I can say with confidence: the Weathy Affiliate environment is upsell free, hype free and scam free.
