I recently joined Wealthy Affiliate and after testing it for about seven weeks I thought I would share some thoughts on it with you.
The site is run by a couple of young and well respected internet marketers called Kyle and Carson. Everywhere you go you will find nothing but good reviews for this site and with good reason. Although it does cost money each month to be a member, $39 to be exact if you take the membership monthly, $29 a month for a yearly membership. This can be cancelled easily at any time. The amount of help and information that is available is truly staggering. The forum alone could be worth that monthly fee. As people are paying for the privilege to be a Wealthy Affiliate member the quality of the posts is generally very high and there are lots of people willing to help you with you internet marketing career.
So other than a forum what else does Wealthy Affiliate offer?
Well a whole raft of tools and resources, which kept me occupied for a couple of weeks just looking round them. I still haven’t tried all of the options yet.
Here is a quick summary of what is available. All of this comes in with your monthly fee. The only item they charge extra for is the accreditation courses.

As you can see the amount of help and resources you get access to is quite extensive. Many companies are charging more than the monthly fee for any one of a similar product.
Sometimes you have to put a price on your learning. If you wanted to do a college course, you would probably spend several thousand dollars a year in fees. When you liken it to what is on offer then you realise what good value it is
At the moment the Wealthy Affiliate site is also offering a bonus of the best selling book Beating Adwords for every new member.
So if you would like to take your internet marketing to a new level then Wealthy Affiliate is definitely for you.
