Getting green by going green

We’ve all heard this before…  sounds simple enough, easy too, right?

Generally it never is, or it’s just another one of those Internet get-rich-quick schemes.

I understand completely.  I’ve been through the ropes and in the process spent a lot of money, needlessly.  I’m so happy that I finally found this gem that I simply wanted to share it with you.

Wealthy Affiliate (Internet Marketing University) is an Internet marketing and business training provider boasting a membership of over 100,000 affiliates.  It is a comprehensive online community made for online entrepreneurs by entrepreneurs that anyone can join and enjoy for free.

Founded in 2005 by two successful young Canucks, Kyle and Carson, it has become one of the highest-rated business resource hubs for online marketing education available.

Wealthy Affiliate does not sell get-rich-quick schemes.  However it does provide a comprehensive education program and all the support necessary to guide you on your path to success.

The most refreshing thing I found about Wealthy Affiliate is the welcoming community where each entrepreneur willing is to help one another build their common future.  It is a solid, vibrant community using a very practical approach. Experts within WA will show you exactly how to build a successful online business – step by step.

If you have any questions, and most likely you will, chances are they have been asked before.  The affiliate query database is vast.  I find answers to anything I need almost immediately, not otherwise found on the web.

Earlier I had investigated other online marketing programs – effective advertising that only lead to scams and false promises.  In my honest opinion and from my experience, having literally gone through the gauntlet, no other training program comes close to offering similar value – at any cost.


All levels of training – from beginner to advanced with a step-by-step guided curriculum

  • Clear Plan of Action – mentoring through through Interactive tutorials and videos
  • Helpful community members and Live help from expert members
  • Free siteRubix websites & SSL certificates provided
  • A strict spam free environment – no ads, no upselling
  • For training purposes only
  • Free membership


  • Possible information overload – the site is packed so full of information one has to break tasks into chunks
  • Great step-by-step training, but easy to get distracted in classroom chat (I was always like that in school)
  • The site dashboard may seem a little noisy at first, but is actually quite simple to navigate once you become familiar.


How much does Wealthy Affiliate cost?   Free, includes premium trial membership.

Starter membership costs nothing and remains free even after the premium one week trial period.  It’s a great way to get started, so you can learn at your own speed and see if WA is the right fit for you.

If you choose to upgrade to a Premium membership, it costs only $19 USD for the first month (additional trial), then $49 USD per month thereafter.

Another option, the annual subscription, costs $30 USD per month (the best value anywhere in my opinion).

Where else can you find training, get the answers and all the tools you’ll need to be a pro webmaster – to build, secure, optimize and monetize your own websites – for less than a dollar a day?

My Rating:


Training 9.5      Support 9.5      Value 100%

Overall Score:  9.5 / 10



I would highly recommend Wealthy Affiliate to anyone interested and willing to invest the time and effort it takes to learn how to generate online income following a program with proven results. Those who apply the program and stay the course will undoubtedly succeed.

WA’s step-by-step approach to website development unlocks the potential of the internet in ways that will amaze you.  I’ve been actively building websites for years and since joining this program, I have had many “ah ha” moments.
