Wealthy Affiliate Scam


Wealthy Affiliate Scam : Like some other programs out there, Wealthy Affiliate is being regarded by “some” people as a club offering false promises. I bet you’re wondering why!

3 Crucial Steps To Internet Marketing Success

Wealthy Affiliate Scam – Introduction

Wealthy Affiliate Scam

As a new, intermediate, or advanced affiliate marketer, chances are you are constantly looking for new tools and ideas to increase your profits online. With more and more programs advertising their value to entrepreneurs, many of us are becoming skeptical about whether or not these programs are legitimate or not. You already know that Wealthy Affiliate University is a club dedicated to offering starter, intermediate and advanced entrepreneurs the tools they need to succeed in affiliate marketing.

Like other programs, Wealthy Affiliate has been regarded as a community offering false promises to members! In this article, I will try to review Wealthy Affiliate University in full detail for you. Once you understand the real offerings of the website, you will be able to come up with your own conclusions about whether the Wealthy Affiliate Scam is something real or not!

Wealthy Affiliate Scam – Too Good To Be True

Generally when something looks too good to be true it is. In the case of Wealthy Affiliate, this generality is inaccurate. Wealthy Affiliate is not like any other community offered online. If you have invested your money in a variety of e-books designed to teach entrepreneurs how to get rich overnight, then it is important to have a realistic approach before signing on board with Wealthy Affiliate University. What I mean is that this online community is designed to teach Internet entrepreneurs how to succeed online and does not offer any false promises on becoming a millionaire in your first month of Internet Marketing.

One of the first things to pay attention to when you are doing your market research for affiliate marketing training programs or affiliate software tools, is to avoid all the products claiming that you will make thousands of dollars with little or no effort. Just like a small business, affiliate marketing takes time and patience. Having this in mind, it is easy to understand that any claims for the existence of a Wealthy Affiliate scam, may be made by individuals expecting to get millionaires overnight with little work and nearly no effort at all! So basically, these people join Wealthy Affiliate and when they realize that making money online requires REAL EFFORT, what they do is they propagate rumors of a Wealthy Affiliate scam. In reality and in the vast majority of the cases, this is all about their own “excuse” for their online failure!

Wealthy Affiliate Scam – A Get Rich Quick Scheme?

One of the first things verifying that the Wealthy Affiliate scam is unfounded, is the denial of the WA university itself that they are a “get rich quick scheme”. In fact, the Wealthy Affiliate University states from the very beginning that there are no guarantees that you will be driving a Ferrari within the next six months of following them. Although WA is designed to give beginner, intermediate and advanced Internet Marketers the tools they need to succeed, the truth is only one: If the techniques and training sessions are not followed closely or as recommended, then you may not generate the income you were dreaming of. Individuals claiming of a Wealthy Affiliate scam may have wanted to start an online business that was automated and profitable.

While you can eventually build an automated business, Wealthy Affiliate University stresses out the importance of focusing on your website and marketing techniques when starting out. If you do not market your website effectively, you cannot expect to succeed online. With billions of marketing websites online, it is easy to claim that there is a Wealthy Affiliate scam if you do not succeed. The truth is that you may not have put in the effort or the perseverance required to stand out amongst the billions of websites already in existence.

Wealthy Affiliate University offers more than 500 different tutorials designed to give members step-by-step instructions on how, what and where to market. When you are an affiliate marketer, you will quickly realize how many marketing platforms and techniques there are out there to choose from. Some training programs will focus on one specific technique and will claim that your marketing efforts will pay back in no time if you know exactly what to do and how to do it. Wealthy Affiliate on the other hand will cover all marketing methods in great detail in order to guarantee online success.

Wealthy Affiliate Scam – The WA Training Center (A Fraud?)

The Training Center in Wealthy Affiliate is far from a Wealthy Affiliate scam! This section of the community offers valuable information that has been constructed by marketing experts from all around the world. The tutorials offered by Wealthy Affiliate University are simple to follow and easy to understand no matter what your level of experience is. If the Wealthy Affiliate fraud was something valid, the company would not have spent so much time compiling valuable and legitimate training tools and tutorials.

In addition to high quality training, the members of Wealthy Affiliate will also receive personal coaching, one to one support and access to community discussion boards. If the Wealthy Affiliate scam was of any substance, all these professional services would not be bounteously offered  and all members seeking help and advice on a personal level would not be able to find it instantly like they do within WA. Generally speaking, illegitimate programs will take your money and send you materials. With Wealthy Affiliate, you receive all the materials promised but you will also receive an ongoing expert training on a personal level that makes all the difference when it comes to online success!

Wealthy Affiliate Scam – Conclusion & Final Statement

Nobody denies the fact that there are thousands of different programs you can choose from, if you want to succeed as an Internet Marketer. When you are comparing these programs, chances are you will find claims of scams for every program. Most members of Wealthy Affiliate University will admit they were hesitant to sign up for the service because of claims they found on the Internet of a Wealthy Affiliate scam. These members took a chance and signed up anyway for a Starter (free) and then Premium (payed) membership. This is also what I did some time back and for me it turned out to be a life changing experience!

Good luck,

  6. Cyrus Barrientos04-10-2013

    Howdy excellent blog! Does running a blog like this require a large amount
    of work? I have absolutely no understanding of computer programming but I was hoping to start my own blog soon.

    Anyways, if you have any ideas or techniques for
    new blog owners please share. I know this is off topic however I simply
    needed to ask. Thanks a lot!

    • Viterbi04-28-2013

      Hello Cyrus,

      in my opinion you need to take this step by step: first learn a little bit about Content Management Systems and more specifically WordPress.

      Regarding computer programming, you don’t need to know anything at all (at least at your first steps).

      Then you also need some information on how to build your web server and your website. It’s all very easy and you can find some quality training material here.

      Let me know if you need any help!

  7. Nannette Gross04-21-2013

    I seriously love your website.. Great colors & theme. Did you build this site yourself?
    Please reply back as I’m planning to create my own personal site and would love to know where you got this from or what the theme is named. Thank you!

    • Viterbi04-28-2013

      Hello, this is the Awake theme from “Mysite Myway” team. You can find it on

      Of course, I have created my own customized child theme with quite a few changes, but the original framework is there.
      Let me know if you need more information.
