Here’s an old Chinese proverb that I always remember in my affiliate journey, and also when I’m helping others build successful affiliate businesses online:

“To know the road ahead, ask those coming back.”

What this proverb means is that if you want to know what the journey to success looks like, then ask someone who has been there. This is the basis of the Wealthy Affiliate reviews I’m about to give you.

An Ordinary Member’s Personal Experience of Wealthy Affiliate

In her video below, Grace was very excited to share with us her results for the year 2018.

She has been with Wealthy Affiliate (WA) since September, 2016. Last year (2018)  she did not only make over $40k as an affiliate, she also became a super affiliate and traveled to Las Vegas, all expenses paid by the WA company.

So this is all exciting year for her and she can’t wait to continue this year 2019.

Grace’s Experience of Wealthy Affiliate in Her Own Words

When I first found Wealthy Affiliate I was eager to learn affiliate marketing. I needed something to show me how to do it properly because I had earlier tried to do this on my own, like back in 2011.

But I just couldn’t make it work.

So when I wanted to try affiliate marketing again later in 2016, I wanted to make sure I found something that would guide me and give me the actual blueprint to follow. I knew it was somewhere out there.

When I eventually found Wealthy Affiliate, I totally knew it was what I wanted.

How Does the Wealth Affiliate Training Work?

The lessons are awesome and are taught step by step, which you’ll learn in a few moments. What I love most is the action-taking part. There’s tasks at the end of each lesson as well for you to take action on.

Okay. But let’s take a look at my results.

Grace's WA account screenshot

So for 2018, I got a total of $40,000 in revenue from my website.  This is pretty much a product of the training at Wealthy Affiliate.

All my training came from the “Training” menu (see above screenshot), which I’ll go into in a second.

Which Niches Can One Go for on WA?

On WA, you could actually pick any niche or topic for your business and WA will teach you how to make money from it using affiliate marketing.

For me, I not only learn at Wealthy Affiliate, I also promote Wealthy Affiliate itself, although that’s just my personal choice.

You could do the same thing or you could just pick your own niche and move on.

Some people like to go for the pets niche, some like to do drones, some like to do car sports, and so on.

I mean there’s unlimited niches (topics) you could get into. But you need to concentrate on one topic that you gonna be focusing on. Okay? And so that’s what I did.

I focused on promoting Wealthy Affiliate. I talk about affiliate marketing, I talk about how to make money online and so on.

I also review different products out there that also try to tell you how to make money online. That’s the majority of what I did in 2017.

Can We See A Screenshot of Your Earnings?

As you can see in this little chart below, I made very little money ($1669) back in 2017.

WA income 2017

However, this was the build-up year for me. This business is very cumulative. In other words you need to build it and then you’ll see the results.

It’s a kind of you reap what you sow in a sense, but you don’t see the results right away. Okay?

And that’s why I try to put in the advice on this post for upcoming new members to read. The results will not come immediately because that’s just not how this business works. Okay?

How this business works is that you go create a website here, right? You’re going to be creating content to help the people in your niche to do certain things.

How Do You Make Money from Your Website

Now let’s say your website is about dogs. Let’s say you want to help dog owners to do certain things with dogs, your whole site will be just about that. Okay? In other words your niche must be targeted.

Now here’s how I’ve been making money with my site.

Of the $40,000 I made in 2018, about $30,000 came from promoting Wealthy Affiliate alone.

WA affiliate earnings

$7,500 come from just Adsense ads that you see on my site (see screenshot below).

Adsense ads

So all the ads you see on the bottom and the side of my posts all make me money.

Having a website helps me make multiple streams of income. For example, I charge people who make guest posts on my site.

Guest posts on my site

The above screenshot shows one of the guest posts. Yeah. So you can make money that way as well. In other words, there are multiple ways you can make money with websites.

So once you learn affiliate marketing from Wealthy Affiliate, you could make money by using ads and guest posts on your site.

You can also have your own product if you wish. This is another one of the multiple ways you can monetize your website once you have one.

Do You Need to Advertise Your Site to Earn Money?

What’s so important to note is that I earned all this money with no advertising. This is part of what I learned at Wealthy Affiliate.

WA taught me how to create a website that creates its own traffic. This is the traffic.

Website traffic at wealthy Affiliate

It brought me 368,965 users for my whole year of 2018. Now that’s all attracted by the website itself, with the words that I use.

The screenshot below shows my website’s 100% free traffic for January, 2019 alone. It was taken from Google Analytics.

What More Can One Learn at Wealthy Affiliate?

There’s  a lot more to learn at Wealthy Affiliate.

For example, you can learn exactly how to blog, how to use affiliate links, search engine optimization tutorial, and how to do everything regarding making money with affiliate marketing.

The above screenshots show my results but there are others who have better results.

Can You Tell Other People Who Became Successful on Wealthy Affiliate?

I know some other people who became even more successful. For example, there’s this guy called Ralph who started the same month and year  that I started on WA. He is in the Health and Fitness niche.

Wealthy Affiliate member who made money

As you can see from the headline of his post, he made a 6-figure income in his business in 2018. He beat me obviously because in the last half of 2018, he hit 6 figures.

You can look at his income in the screenshot below.

Members income at wealthy affiliate

So he did it. He made over $110,000 in 2018. That was incredible. He made over $24,000 in December 2018 alone! These are the numbers that are possible with affiliate marketing. Okay.

Now I am an ambassador and also a super affiliate at Wealthy Affiliate because of my success.

  1. Point blank! I must confess that this is one of the most comprehensive review I have ever read on wealthy affiliate. The benefits of Wealthy Affiliate is enormous  and can never be compared with any other platform in the world. There are tons of lessons to help you fully understand the wide scope of affiliate marketing and blogging. There are also awesome tools like jaaxy, site health, site feedback, site comments and domain registration. I am very sure newbies will find your review very helpful. When I join they just help me smooth my business strategy and sharpen my online entrepreneurial abilities immediately with their all inclusive training courses. I can strongly recommend them any where in the world.

    • I quite agree with you Topaz. Wealthy Affiliate is the best training platform for newbies aspiring to be successful affiliate marketers.

  2. I am also a huge fan of Wealthy Affiliate and a happy paying member since June 2015. I’m not making a fortune like some of those other members you mentioned but I am making a full time income from home which is amazing for me as a stay at home mother. 

    With the things that I have learned I could certainly be earning more if I chose a narrower niche and focused more on affiliate marketing but I love the blogging that I do and it is so important to me to be able to have fun and give value when I blog so I stick to broader niches. 

    • That’s great Lynne. Being able to make full time income from home is amazing. Thank you for your insight.

    • Hey Lynne! About how long did it take you to start monetizing your website from WA? I’m a new member and looking for motivation!

  3. Thanks for writing this review on wealthy affiliate and also thanks for sharing grace wealthy affiliate story ,reading this article make me feel motivated to do more work in wealthy affiliate. Although am new to affiliate marketing in general and also wealthy affiliate but with all am learning day after day am sure am moving closer to my dream online everyday. 

    • Sure you’re moving closer each day to being a successful affiliate marketer with the awesome training Wa gives.

      Just don’t relent and you’ll soon be there.

  4. Great Review of WA.  It makes me want to join!  Oh wait, I already did!  No really, I like how you added a real life person in there, and what her earnings were and how long she had been a member.  This made it real-world for me.  So, yes, the site looks great, and it pulls you in with the real world stuff.  Good info!  RhondaLeigh

    • Thank you RhondaLeigh for your comment. It’s good to learn from people who had passed through the journey. It gives you a feeling of what the road looks like.

  5. Lawal has shown that I am in the right place, this article has cleared and enlighten me more about wealthy affiliate. With determination and perseverance one will succeed in affiliate marketing program. By also providing evidence of successful affiliate marketers in the article, it has further clear the doubt. Great job. I like the article. Precise and straight to the point.

    • Thank you Ibrahim. Please visit my blog again soon for more helpful reviews like this.

  6. Hi

    That is one comprehensive review about Wealthy Affiliate, which cover every aspect that I need to know about the program. I notice that you give the more extreme example of how much a person can make, but what about  how much the average person makes, as this is more representative. Anyway a good review.


    • Hi Antonio. I will write more reviews soon that show average earnings of members. But what I know is that if you follow the training at WA and take it like your business, the sky is the beginning to what you can achieve.

  7. I am very intrigue by the income chart that was shown between 2016 to 2018 – that was a huge jump from $54 to $40K! And she achieved all that without advertising? Wow! I always thought that if you are making anywhere near 5 figure, there should be some kind of paid traffic strategies going on. Seeing her results makes me want to ramp up my SEO effort, one that I’ve been really struggling due to lack of commitment to my site.

    Just what I need to get started for the morning!  

    • Thank you Cathy. SEO is one of the strategy taught at WA for getting free traffic. You do not need paid traffic. If you can show more commitment to your site and follow the step by step training at WA, you will surely get more traffic to your site.

  8. Good evening, Lawal.  

    A  very unique take on a review for Wealthy Affiliate and it shows, once again just how amazing this platform is and If one just follows the step by step training and is consistently working on their website/s success is imminent.

    Yes, it is not a get rich quick platform. Personally, I wouldn’t have it any other way.  It is a platform that WILL teach one to do Internet Marketing the right way and Graces story is the proof.  Ralph’s story is the proof.

    I could name others, Tony Hamilton, Vitaliy, Labman, Marion Black, Lynne Huy and, Loes just to name a few.

    Not only are these people successful online, but they also help others to become successful online as well.

    Carson and Kyle… so much can be said about these two men and the team of tech wizards that work with them.  I suppose the one thing that impresses me about them is their continuing efforts to improve the platform which includes upgrading the training on a regular basis so that everyone is up to date with the way the internet is changing.

    I just read a post by VitaliyG earlier today that had links to another post about 10 of the most successful people in WA and there were links to others as well.

    WA is full of success stories and anyone who joins, even for free, is going to meet at least a few of them and more if they become Premium members.

    I had better stop here or I will be writing a post for you before I know it.

    Good job. Loved the video.

    I am inspired even more,


    • Thank you Wayne for your letting us know even more successful people on Wealthy Affiliate. There are so many success stories on WA that I cannot mention write all. I will be updating my blog soon with a few more of these success stories. Many thanks Wayne.
