Wealthy Affiliate is a website builder. It lets you go through classes to build your own website in less than 30 minutes. It is easy to use and not hard to follow. If you get stuck, you can ask others for help.
- This is a great site to build friendships while learning.
- It helps you to go through the steps to build your own website, promote that website, and get it up and running.
- The start up cost is free. This is great for college students and others that are looking for some help in making a website and don’t have much money to spend on that website.
- Make money while learning to build a website.
- Encouragement – Great site to have others encourage you through your walk with getting your business up and running.
- Free Trip to Vegas! (Okay, so I like this idea. Who else can say that they went to a website and got a trip to Vegas for just learning?)
- Most of the information is also located on YouTube. However, when using YouTube you don’t get the support that you have here. Yes, you can learn about how to build a website using YouTube, but you don’t get the people who can help you, steps that you did not think about nor can you ask YouTube questions.
- You do have to buy your own domain.
- Eventually you want to go premium, which does cost money.
- You can get confused sometimes from some of the classes, but you do have the option of asking for help. So this is a pro and a con.
- There is a lot of competetion.
WHO IT IS FOR
As a beginner you will be able to learn how to build a site, put it up on social media, get it running and gives you all the steps to start a business. It will also help you to have someone look at your information and critique it as you go, instead of flopping around like a fish out of water not knowing what you are doing. It also gives some good ideas. It encourages you to ask questions, things that teachers in the younger years of schooling discouraged. Yes, they would always say that you can ask questions, but then you are ridiculed if you did ask questions. At least that is what happened to me.
If you are an intermediate, you probably already have the basic stuff for your website but want extra help or a way to learn more about what you already know. This site is great for contacts. It will also help you to further your education and help you with those little things that you may have missed in school.
As a professional web builder you probably are looking for new ways to do things, more people to generate to your sites, and a way to make more contacts. This site does just that. It is a great way to build relationships with others. It will help you to give your ideas on things, unless you are the kind of person who does not like to share things with others, which if you are here you are not that type of person. Yes, you can find most of this stuff on YouTube, in classes, or anywhere else on the web, but are you really getting the contacts that you want? Ask yourself the question, am I getting all the leads, traffic, and friends to my site that I want to get? If your answer is no, then I would recommend at least trying this site out.
Have you thought along these lines? “Anyone can build websites, it is a dime a dozen on that, what you pay for is the imaging and content for the sites. This is where the money is at in the web field, not in the building a website. Plus you can google it and watch videos, and learn how to do it for free, why pay someone when you are looking to make money?” Well, my answer to this is that as you know it is easy to make a website, but this is more than just building a website. It is building relationships. It is building a clientele. It is helping others. It is not just a website builder.
The training with Wealthy Affiliate includes a boot camp that starts you out as an affiliate for the site. It will help you gain the knowledge to build and grow your business. If you are a pro at making websites, well, I believe you can learn something every day. For the beginner, this is a great tool. There are many paths for the learning.
You can use the Rubix site to build your own website, this is for everyone, pros, intermediates, and beginners. If you already have your own domain, you can bring that over.
There is a step by step guide to building your website and your business. Things that help you to learn how to build the website, but also helps you to get the traffic to your business and website.

There is a lot of support when you use Wealthy Affiliate. I have not used this very long, but I know already that people on this site care. So if you don’t care for others, this site is not for you!
There are people who have done this for a long time, and there are some people who are beginners. Everyone has at least some knowledge to add to this great mixture. What one person learns from here, or elsewhere, they don’t mind sharing.
The best part, in my opinion, is that you gain friendships. You get to share your knowledge about the things you know about and what works best for you. You also have a helping hand there to guide you and support you through the process.
You don’t have to do it alone. My struggles have always been that I do things and it is always me. No one to guide or help you through things. No one to let you know when you are heading in the wrong way. No one to tell you “You are doing a great job.” No one to encourage you through the steps. Now that I found this, I have the people to guide me, people to let me know when my site has a blurp in it. I have the support and the guiding that I need to succeed. Some people can do without this. However, I am not that type of person. I want someone to look at my site and see if it is okay. Tell me what I am doing wrong. Encourage me when I am not succeeding, and I like the fact that there are many people here that will say that I am doing a great job. And if you join, I will make sure that I will say that to you, too!
I know you are asking yourself, so what is the price for this? What price would you put on all this? Are you willing to pay lots of money for it? What does the normal college student pay for knowledge in the classroom? Usually the classroom in college ranges anywhere from $6,000.00 per 15 credit hours up to $25,000.00 for up to 15 credit hours. Well, with Wealthy Affiliate, you can start out free. If you chose to go premium, which would be good after you start making money, you would be spending about $47.00 per year or if you choose the yearly option would cost only $359.00. This is still less than the price you are paying per credit hour at college. And you can make money while you are learning. Can you do that at college?
Here is the price list for this website:
My opinion is that this is a great site. It is not just a website builder as some may claim. This site helps you through the steps to build a successful business. It helps you to learn how to do the stuff to make it successful. If you don’t want success, if you don’t want to earn money, if you don’t want to talk to others and have your site critiqued, then I would not recommend this. If you do want all of this and more, then come on board! I would love to meet you.
This is a caring site. It aims to help people get over the struggles that they encounter. So if you don’t care for others, this site is not for you!
