It's a "Jungle out there" as they say. It's especially true if you are trying to earn money online. If you are a newbie searching ways to earn, you may be one click away from some Internet Guru promising you that you will earn $$$$ today FREE, or you're another click away from a blatant scam.
Gurus will make their offer sound easy and bait you with a free offer, until you are inside the 'Back Office'. That's where their fun and profits start via the UPSELLS upon many more UPSELLS to get YOU that fast $$$$ on their FAST TRACK that they promised you FREE in the first place.
Blatant Scammers will offer you a wonderful 'SHINY EMPTY BOX' for only $XX.XX but you have to go join these 8 programs to market that Empty Box. To accelerate your earnings, you must upgrade in those programs, and then Join these 4 programs (not free to join) but they will sky-rocket your earnings. The Scammers will get their cut from that Empty Box, but they will also be members of the 12 programs that they urge you to join.
Wealthy Affiliate is neither of these types of ways to earn online.
If you are looking for the 'Easy Button' fix to earn online, please excuse me for being blunt-STOP READING THIS REVIEW AND HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY.

Wealthy Affiliate is a 'Safe Haven' for Affiliate Markers whether they be seasoned markers or absolute greenhorns.
Many members have been Premium members of WA since its beginnings in 2003. They wouldn't be there if WA wasn't working for them.
As long as you have the ambition to get your business up and running, and have the mindset that you are creating an online business, there is no reason that you cannot become successful in internet marketing with the help of WA's training.Wealthy Affiliate -- The Negatives
Wealthy Affiliate is a very large platform. Many new member can easily become overwhelmed when the first start at WA.
My suggestion for this is to take some time to look around the platform. When you are ready to start learning, there is a Green Getting Started Button
in the mail menu which will take you to the course outline of the Online Certification Course.
As a free member, you will have full premium access to the platform for 7 days. After which you can remain as a Free Member for life with WA and still have two Websites hosted with the SiteRubix Subdomain.Wealthy Affiliate: My Final Take
Wealthy Affiliate is a superb platform that can take your internet marketing efforts to a whole new level of success.
The platform is designed for anyone who wants to take a serious effort to create their own online business.
It is not a Shiny Empty Box that you will try to market to no avail and only cost you money in the long run.
You are not falling victim to a Guru whose only target is your bottomless wallet.
It was built and is operated by Kyle and Carson who are both Affiliate Marketing Professionals and have been in the business for over 15 Years. They are not Gurus by any sense of the term. You will never be UPSOLD, or enticed into additional higher levels in order to take you to 'New Heights'.
Free members even have access to Kyle and Carson for live help for their first seven days.
So my advice if you are serious about starting an internet business. Give WA a try for Free for as long as you like.
Take full advantage of the first 7 days of premium status to get the full meal deal. If you decide that WA is for you within that 7 days, your first months premium membership is only $19.00.
You will receive a welcome message from me when you join as a free member. Let me know on my personal profile that you have arrived and click the blue "FOLLOW ME" button beside my profile name and I'll help you with your WA endeavours.
