In this article, I will be discussing the 7 reasons why I joined Wealthy Affiliate; the best online affiliate marketing community. It was an easy decision and one that I was happy to make. At that point in my life, I was working 55-70 hours a week. I worked in sales, so it was a high-pressure job. I was getting paid great money, yes, but I was not able to enjoy all that money that I was making.

Believe me, after working that many hours there is nothing else that I wanted more than to sleep. However, I also wanted to be out somewhere with my family enjoying my hard-earned money. I wanted to spend more quality time with my kids. I know I am not the only one out there with this same story.

Family Looking at Sunset


This was my motivation for looking for an opportunity where I could match or exceed my current income and spend more time at home. So, I went to Google and started looking for home-based employment. That is when I came across Wealthy Affiliate.

Now, Wealthy Affiliate was not the only work at home opportunity that I found. I also found another popular affiliate marketing training program called Affilorama. I decided to go with Wealthy Affiliate.

The Wealthy Affiliate community is the most successful and helpful collection of people that I have ever met. I have never known or been surrounded by so many people that are so eager to help you for nothing in return.

This community is filled with people that are genuinely dedicated to helping you succeed. What’s better is your peers, those in the Wealthy Affiliate community that are answering your questions and helping you, are successful entrepreneurs.

There are many in the community that are making $5,000, $10,000, $15,000 + and above monthly. I don’t know about you, but I believe it is wise to listen to the advice of those that have achieved that kind of success.

Personal Coaching

One of the deciding factors as to why I joined Wealthy Affiliate is the personalized coaching that I receive from the owner, Kyle. He has had many years in this industry and he is awesome at what he does.

  1. Hi Shwana,
    You made an excellent post. I was a Wealthy Affiliate member and I have beautiful memories of those days. I’ve met (online) so many positive people who want to help each other. Wa seemed like a big family. Of course, I’ve learned a lot there and I would definitely recommend anyone who wants to work from home or make some extra money. Good job.Thanks for sharing.

    1. Hello Maja. I’m glad that you liked my post. I love writing posts like this one because it flows out so naturally whenever I speak about the Wealthy Affiliate community. WA is a big family and we do truly enjoy helping each other succeed.

  2. Hi Shwana,

    I just finished reading your great post about Wealthy Affiliate.

    I have heard of this organisation before, but I haven’t paid much attention to it until now. It got lost in all of the information available out there on the web.

    Thank you for describing this opportunity so well.

    One question. In reality how steep is the learning curve here, and on average how long will it take to start making money with affiliate marketing?

    Thank you,


    1. Hello Howard! I agree that there is a lot of information about affiliate marketing training circulating out there to where you can easily get overwhelmed. I am glad that this post put Wealthy Affiliate into better perspective for you.

      To answer your question, the training lessons are laid out in an easy to understand way. You do not have to be a genius or a seasoned marketing to follow along. There are videos, text lessons, and you can ask questions whenever you need clarification. You will receive your answer usually within 5 minutes. Most of the time from many different members. 

      The amount of time it takes you to make money can vary. This will depend on how much time you have to invest, the niche or audience and products you decide to promote. There is not a uniform answer for this. However, I can tell you that it is not easy money. You will have to work for it.

      I thoroughly enjoy what I do. If you have any more questions please ask. If you are ready to join Wealthy Affiliate click here. Thanks for visiting. Good luck!

  3. Hey Shwana
    Cool post – WA sure offers a lot for the price and has provided thousands of people with a lifestyle we all dream about.
    Its not a breeze and definitely requires ongoing effort but that is done at your own pace and from wherever you may find your self.
    I love the stories at WA where people say they “Fired my boss today” – haha too brilliant.
    Best of luck

    1. Hello Lawrence. Yes, Wealthy Affiliate does offer a lot of bang for your buck. Before I joined WA, I could not find a better value with similar programs, Wealthy Affiliate is truly something special.
      It is definitely not an easy get-rich-quick situation, nope it’s a lot of hard work but it does pay off. We all would love to “fire our bosses” and WA makes it all possible.

  8. Hi Shwana,
    A great article you have written here, I can so much understand your feelings – of working so hard and not enjoying the “fruits of your labor”, it is so unfair that we have to work so hard and give up our dear loved ones in order to actually provide for them!
    It’s a kind of an oxymoron in that sense!
    Anyways, I totally agree with you that Wealthy Affiliate is one of the best places to learn and grow an online marketing business. In the short year I have been here I can’t believe how much I have learned! And I keep on learning.
    Wishing you $ucce$$

    1. Hello Orion. Very happy that you like the article. Working so hard that we can’t enjoy the money we earn is a very common story, unfortunately. I am so glad that I found Wealthy Affiliate and joined when I did. I am glad that you are enjoying WA as well. It is a great place to be. I wish you all the best and much success. Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment.

  9. Love your reasons! They are really good reasons! I have been with Wealthy Affiliate for a year and a half, and I must say I agree with all the reasons you gave.

    To me, the best reasons are the training and the community. When a person follows the training, he or she will see really good progress with their new or existing website and business. And the community – love them! As you said so correctly, they are very helpful and knowledgeable. Any time I have a question or doubt, I ask, and many of them will come running and helping. Love love them!

    I am going to stay with Wealthy Affiliate for a long long time.
