Wealthy Affiliate - What is it?
This proved to be the hardest paragraph for me to write. The difficulty is that WA (Wealthy Affiliate) provides so many things! The most basic description I could come up with is ‘a platform and community that provides the education and every element required to create an industry leading, revenue ready affiliate website. Suitable for everyone from complete novices to professionals’.
I did a lot of research when looking for a platform to start my online career, made plenty of mistakes (and lost money) before finding WA. Read on to learn about some of the main elements that I feel make the WA platform that extra bit special.
Site Support 24/7
The screen shot above shows the four main ways to access support within WA.
- Site support – provides technical support for your website 24/7. This is the way to connect with the experts at WA. Fill in the site support ticket and they will respond within minutes.
- Ask a question – this is the way to contact the community within WA. With over 1.4 million members of the WA community there is always somebody available to help with any problems. Remember, the majority of the community are professional affiliate marketers so there is unlikely to be any problem that they have not come across.
- Live chat – connect with members of the community worldwide to get real time help and discussion.
- Private message – contact any member of the community in private.
The hosting platform at WA is called SiteRubix and is an industry leading platform with some very useful unique features.
- Double hosting (full redundancy) – this feature is unique to WA. The WA ‘double hosting’ is an amazing feature, giving your website the security of full redundancy. In essence WA hosts two copies of your website, if your website was to ‘go down’ for any reason the mirror image of your website would be put in place immediately.
- SiteSSL (HTTPS)WA serves your site over 256-bit Encrypted Connections for FREE! This encryption enables visitors to navigate your site safe in the knowledge that their data is safe and secure.
- SiteProtect (Spam Blocker) Unlike other ‘spam blockers’ which work at site level, which can result in a cluttered database and slow site. WA SiteProtect works at the server level, this means All automated spam comment is blocked before it hits your site.
- Site backups every 24 hours – it doesn’t matter how skilled or experienced you are, mistakes happen. WA know this and backup your site every 24 hours. It’s good to know that if (or indeed when) you make a mistake, WA has a backup ready and waiting for you – (I’ve been relieved the backups were there more than once!)
WA site builder
WA Site builder enables everybody to create the most sophisticated and professional sites with just a few clicks. In fact the average time taken to produce a website is 34 seconds!
You will also have access to 1,000s of professional website templates, so whatever type of website you want to create there will be a template to get you started.
Once you have created your site, you are going to need to be ranked by the search engines. Again WA has it covered, the powerful and fast WA platform provides sites that the search engines like to rank, fact!
Even better, you can build a website for free, click below to find out more.
No matter what level of experience you bring with you to WA the fact is it works!
The training is task orientated, and not only tells you what to do but shows you and supports you. You can work through the training at your own pace and return to a piece of training over and over if you need.
The training is comprehensive with 52 live classes a year, helped over 217,000 people build their first business last year.
With this great training, the amazing support and the huge community and any and all situations will be covered. Then add in the fact that you can be earning from your website as you learn and it really is win, win.
The domain is your website address and WA has you covered here too. With WA you have access to millions of .com, .net, .org, .info and all other top domains.
Unlike some domain registrars, there are no upsells with WA. Every domain purchased at WA comes with everything you need in one place:
- Full access to emails.
- Full privacy and domain protect.
- Full email accounts included with each domain purchase.
Keyword research tool
The keyword research tool from WA is called Jaaxy and it is a truly powerful tool that does so much more than identify powerful keywords. Jaaxy gives you access to:
- Keyword Search
- Keyword List Management
- Search Analysis
- Alphabet Soup Tool
- Brainstorm Ideas
All of these tools give you a huge advantage when constructing your blogs, articles etc. To learn more about Jaaxy take a look at my post https://adcudere.com/how-to-perform-keyword-research/
Free or Premium?
Some of the elements I have mentioned are available only with premium membership. The amazing thing is that premium really means premium, everything is included, no upsells, just an industry leading platform. By all means take a look at the free membership and create your first website but if you are anything like me you will want to go premium as soon as possible, I for one have never regretted it! Take a look at the chart below to see the main differences between the memberships.
I hope this have given you a good insight into Wealthy Affiliate and some of its main elements. The fact that over 1.4 million people are members, they were established in 2005 and some of the members are running million dollar businesses all goes to give you confidence that this ia a platform you can trust.
If you really want to build a successful online business then you could do a lot worse than joining WA – remember you can start with zero risk and zero obligation with the free Starter membership. Click the link below to see for yourself.
