Hey Folks, Jeff Lenney here and thanks for stopping by to check out my Wealthy Affiliate Review. Anyways, let’s get down to business, shall we?
The Wealthy Affiliate Scam
Wealthy Affiliate (not an affiliate link) is nothing but another Scam. You’ve probably seen their affiliates online, giving negative reviews of every Internet Marketing product on the web and then recommending “Their #1 Recommended Program” (Wealthy Affiliate) instead.
Wealthy Affiliate is run by two scammers, Kyle & Carson, their forum is more or less like a paid version of the Warrior Forum with nothing unique or special about it.
To be honest, what brought my attention (and this review) to Wealthy Affiliate was all of the NEGATIVITY their members are spitting out. Read ANY Review for other (non WA) products on one of their sites and they’ll usually bash that product, call it a scam, and then recommend Wealthy Affiliate.
“This (legit) product is a scam, check out Wealthy Affiliate Instead” – that tends to be the common theme amongst most of them.

Some of the Wealthy Affiliates Negativity
I took a look online for some WA reviews of 3 of the BEST Affiliate Marketing courses to hit the market this past year – and as luck would have it, I found PLENTY of WA ‘affiliates’ giving these courses negative reviews in order to get you to join Wealthy Affiliate with their affiliate link.
False Information by somebody who clearly has NOT gone through the 100k Factory Training.
False Information by somebody who clearly has NOT gone through the Inbox Blueprint Training.
I love this last one – while I didn’t include what’s just below this in my screen shot – the person knows it’s a scam because they have a sales page and it’s an expensive course! LOL – I wish I was kidding! I’d give you a link to check it out for yourself, but I don’t want to send them any traffic.
Anyways… these products ‘reviewed’ above by Wealthy Affiliate members (Inbox Blueprint, Profit Academy review and 100k Factory) are some of the BEST online courses I’ve seen in 2015 and 2016 – but hey – it fits their agenda to bash them in order to get more sales for the Wealthy Affiliate Scammers Kyle & Carson.
(Full Disclaimer, I’m an affiliate for all 3 of the above-mentioned products, but as of the time I’m writing this review none are currently for sale)
In a private conversion with a former Wealthy Affiliate Member of a few years, he told me this:
The problem with WA is that they say if you havent got a product just promote WA. They make it so easy to just promote WA that a lot of people who are just too impatient or lazy do just that. Now the product has become all about promoting the product.
The Product Has Become all about promoting the product….that sums things up nicely.
How Much does Wealthy Affiliate Cost?
Most of the WA members love to say you can get started for free, while this is true (you do get 7 DAYS for free), most of them fail to mention is that the course is $47 per month after. With your first month discounted to just $19 if you join immediately, you’ll end up paying $564.00 per YEAR for this garbage.
The affiliates know it’s not free, but hide the fact to trick you into signing up with their affilate link:
No Mention of the Monthly Cost…
Even the Wealthy Affiliate Sign Up Page hides the fact that there is a cost associated with joining.
They sucker you in with the promise of FREE – then hit you for $19 the first month, and $47 for each month after!
- Month 1 – $19
- Month 2: $47
- Month 3: $47
- Month 4: $47
- Month 5: $47
- Month 6: $47
- Month 7: $47
- Month 8: $47
- Month 9: $47
- Month 10: $47
- Month 11: $47
- Month 12: $47
- TOTAL PER YEAR: $564.00
Their affiliates also get up to $175.00 per referral – but I don’t understand why they bash legitimately good products in order to push the sub-par newbie training in Wealthy Affiliate…?
My Wealthy Affiliate Review
You want my Wealthy Affiliate Review? I’m happy to help, here it is; Stay away and don’t waste your time. If you want to get started making money online without spending a dime, I highly recommend the following resources that won’t cost you a penny!
- The Warrior Forum – The world’s LARGEST Affiliate Marketing Forum and 100% Free to Join.
- Wicked Fire – Smarter Crowd than the Warrior Forum and they share some GREAT stuff, again free.
- Digital Point (not as newbie friendly though)
- Black Hat World – Focuses more on Black Hat SEO, but some GREAT information in here and actually fairly newbie friendly too!
- Apex Forum
I PROMISE you, any one of the forums above has the same, if not better training than you’ll get by paying Wealthy Affiliate $49 a month for. They won’t give you pre-built websites in various hot niches, but who cares – you’ll still need to generate traffic in order for them to be useful to you.
Learn to build your own websites, WordPress is ridiculously easy to use!
Anyways – my final verdict on Wealthy Affiliate?
Save your time, save your money and make sure you share this post with your friends if you found it helpful.
Thanks – and I’m sure I’ll be hearing from the Guys at WA and their team of negative affiliates soon enough about this. 🙂
