Wealthy Affiliate by Kyle and Carson

Building out and running websites, like this one, is a GREAT way to make a living…but it’s not all fun and games!

I didn’t just wake up one morning and think “I’m going to build a popular website and dominate Google today!”…

To be honest, when I first started out, I struggled to connect my laptop to the internet.

Web design, internet marketing, blogging – call it what you want…

It has a relatively steep learning curve.

But, just because it’s steep – doesn’t mean it’s hard or out of reach!

In this article we will be taking a closer look at the two guys who taught me the ropes – Kyle and Carson of Wealthy Affiliate.

There are thousands of courses online that claim to be the best at educating you in internet marketing…but only one of them has stood the test of time (and I’m honored to be a student and success story from their setup)…

So Who are Kyle and Carson?

Kyle Loudon and Carson Lim created the Wealthy Affiliate education platform back in 2005.

They had a simple goal – they wanted to provide a solid education to those who were serious about building a successful internet business.

Since it’s inception, their platform has grown its community to thousands of self driven successful entrepreneurs with interests ranging from sports to families and every topic in between.

So, what separates Kyle and Carson’s product/education from the thousands of other internet marketing training platforms out there?

Well for starters – you can go through their complete crash course on internet marketing for FREE!

Seriously, the Starter Membership is made up of 10 modules and covers everything you need to know to get a foothold in the internet marketing industry.

I personally know several bloggers that started out with just this free education – it’s more than enough to get you up and running AND keep you ahead of the game.

There is a Premium Membership, of course, but this is for the entrepreneurs that are looking to conquer EVERY aspect of online business…and I was one of these! 🙂

The Premium Membership costs $49 a month…but that’s not the most sensible deal on the table…

If you pay annually for this membership – it works out at £21.91 a month…now that’s more like it!

Here’s a comparison chart between the two Wealthy Affiliate memberships:

I have to point out that the monthly charge is all you will pay – no additional training, no special ‘modules’ and no upsells or hidden costs.

Once you sign up for the Premium education that is it – you will receive the whole internet marketing expertise on offer.

Become a Internet Marketing Specialist

Sounds pretty scary doesn’t it?

Become a internet marketing specialist!

But please don’t worry – if you are interested in this type of thing, it really isn’t that hard to learn.

I should rephrase that a bit – it’s NOT a steep learning curve but there is A LOT to learn!

Simply put – if I can do it…anyone can!

Seriously, I’m no Einstein at the end of the day!

Kyle and Carson’s training is perfectly set up for newbies to the subject of internet marketing – I knew absolutely NOTHING about the subject when I first signed up.

Back then there were no free memberships – I had to pay for ALL of my education (you lucky sods are getting it for FREE!).


The key to their platform being so successful is the community element – you are never left to your own devices when learning, help is at hand 24 hours a day – 7 days a week!

Still not convinced?

Okay, let’s run through a handful of questions you may have on your mind…

QUESTION ONE: Can I build and run a business on just the Starter Package?

Yes of course you can! As I touched on above – I know several people who have done this successfully. The Starter Membership gives you two free websites along with all the training to get your internet business up and running!

QUESTION TWO: If I upgrade to premium at any point – do I have to start all over again with my websites etc?

Of course not! That would be ridiculous!

Think of Premium as an extension of Starter Membership – Everything that you create and build in the Starter Membership is carried forward to Premium.

QUESTION THREE: Will they get pissed at me if I can’t ever afford to upgrade to the Premium Membership?

Definitely not – they may offer you a few special deals to get on the Premium train from time to time, but there is never any pressure from anyone at Wealthy Affiliate for you to go Premium.

Personally, I’d definitely recommend looking into upgrading at some point – but I was in it for the long run! I now work online blogging for a living – and that’s what I set out to do…

If you are totally new to making money online, I would suggest that you check out the Wealthy Affiliate’s #1 recommended online business course as this was my stepping stone to build an income generating business.

  1. Great review on Wealthy Affiliate and I can confirm all the points you are making about this internet platform.

    When I have joined WA over 4 years ago I was greener than green. I did know nothing about how to build a website, on my own nor did I have a clue what is affiliate marketing and how to earn money with my website and blogging.

    Everything was strange and a bit scary too. However, I took the plunge and tried out their free membership, which everyone can keep no problem.

    Again, however, I took the chance and upgraded to the premium membership and I am glad I did. Kyle even helped me to settle for a domain name of one of my websites. This happened when I saw him in the chatroom and just asked him what he thought of my three possible name choices.

    I still run this website with his name suggestion and it is successful too.

    My personal experience with WA, as well Kyle and Carson are absolute positive. But, than again, I am a realist and I pull my own weight which just means, I do my part as well.

    WA is an awesome internet platform where you can learn and grow, you just have to do your own work and implement what they are teaching you.

    Thanks, Chris for sharing 🙂

  3. Hello there,

    Wealthy Affiliate is truly an amazing place to learn Affiliate Marketing step by step from ground up in a very detailed & user-friendly way. Right of the bat, I have to say that I am very impressed by the amount of high quality lessons I’ve found here on WA. The lessons themselves are super informative and very helpful, and do a phenomenal job of explaining each aspect in a detailed and helpful way for everybody to understand. But the thing which stood out for me the most was the community of WA, which does an outstanding job at providing help at any given moment! You can always expect to get a great support and love form the community here at WA. I’ve never seen anything like this before in my life, wow! Thanks for such detailed review, keep up the good work 😉

  4. Hi! Thank you very much for this review about Wealthy Affiliate. I have read good reviews concerning this platform. And I had also made myself a couple of questions. But I see you have answered some of them in the body of this post. But I still have an inquiry. Do they accept PayPal as a payment method? Thank you in advance.
