Have you ever wondered, why are there so many Wealthy Affiliate reviews Online? Seems to be some scams aren’t they? I am going to reveal all in this review.
Wealthy Affiliate Boot Camp Review
What I am going to reveal here is going to enlighten you a little.
I am going to share with you the lesser known course in this report, Wealthy Affiliate Boot Camp.
Wealthy Affiliate Boot Camp is Wealthy Affiliate’s Affiliate Program.
You are going to learn how much a Wealthy Affiliate Member could potentially earn by referring it’s program to other people.
I am going to reveal the different schools of thoughts on Wealthy Affiliate Boot Camp and whether it is still a money making affiliate program for a new budding Online Entrepreneur.
Wealthy Affiliate Boot Camp Review – What is it all about?
Besides the Online Entrepreneur Certification Course offered at Wealthy Affiliate University, there is another course lesser known by the Online Public. However, you’ll definitely know it when you become a Starter/Premium Member.
It is the Wealthy Affiliate Boot Camp, an affiliate program to promote its program.
Why people do not write about the Wealthy Affiliate Boot Camp much in their reviews?
Because, some people may feel uncomfortable revealing up front the commission plan to their visitors. It is like I am telling you that I am making this amount of money from you if you click my link, the new member may be turned off.
Most affiliate marketers do not reveal their commissions to their visitors. However, there are some exceptional cases, of course, where members will tell you everything when they want to provide full transparency for their readers.
Well, in the name of transparency, I am going to share with you the details of Boot Camp here. 🙂
Wealthy Affiliate Boot Camp was created for the purpose of
- Spreading the good words about Wealthy Affiliate.
- Members could earn some money while referring others to Wealthy Affiliate. (Not MLM system)
- Helping new members who do not have any idea of what niche they are going into with their very first Online Business. (Wealthy Affiliate Boot Camp is in the “Make Money Online” niche.)
Wealthy Affiliate Boot Camp Review – Training

Wealthy Affiliate Review Boom.
During the Wealthy Affiliate Boot Camp training, Kyle will teach you how to write reviews and how to attract visitors to Wealthy Affiliate in course #1 and course #2.
The very first article you will write when you join Wealthy Affiliate Boot Camp Training is to write a Wealthy Affiliate Review.
Wealthy Affiliate started Boot Camp since 2005, thousands of Wealthy Affiliate Members had taken part in the training and created each of their own Wealthy Affiliate Review page/post.
Currently, there are more than 10,000s of Wealthy Affiliate active members have gone through the Boot Camp Traning and thus the boom of Wealthy Affiliate Review pages/posts on the Internet.
“How to avoid Scams” sites Boom.
The marketing technique taught at Wealthy Affiliate Boot Camp is to create review pages of “Make Money Online” products.
Because there are so many people attracted to this “making money online” niche, there are thousands of “Make Money Online” products available online. Most of them are created to scam people of their hard earn money and that’s it!
However, there are few good ones which provide honestly real training too. Wealthy Affiliate is one of the honestly real ones.
So, Kyle taught this technique of writing reviews of scam products and compare them with Wealthy Affiliate during the boot camp training course #2. Kyle created one “How to avoid Scams” review site himself to demonstrate his teaching.
As expected, people following the boot camp will emulate what was taught. This created a boom in “How to avoid Scams” sites all over the internet.
As the “How to avoid Scams” sites number grows and grows, it is causing some concerns within the Wealthy Affiliate Community.
Should a new budding Online Entrepreneur start with Wealthy Affiliate Boot Camp? (I will talk about this later.)
Wealthy Affiliate Boot Camp Review – Commission Structure
Now you have understood why there are so many Wealthy Affiliate Review pages/posts and “How to avoid scam” sites.
You must be asking “How much can one earn?” by referring members to Wealthy Affiliate.
Before I go on, I must tell you that it is not an MLM company and there is no multi-level compensation plan. You must be clear about this.
There are 3 incentives at Wealthy Affiliate Boot Camp.
#1 Wealthy Affiliate Member invitation credit.(Premium Members Only)
If you invite a new member to join Wealthy Affiliate and the new member completes his/her profile, you earn 1 credit.
1 credit = $1 which can be cash out any time.
#2 Wealthy Affiliate Member referral commission
Premium Members can earn $8 for the first month $19 special offer, then $22.50 for the monthly recurring. If any referral upgrades to yearly payment to save cost over a long term, you’ll earn $175 for the yearly recurring.
FREE* Starter Members basically earns half of everything. $4 for special offer referrals, then $11.25 monthly recurring and $87.50 yearly recurring.
The conversion rate is estimated to be 1 in 8. This means that out of 8 people you invited to Wealthy Affiliate, 1 of them will likely upgrade to Premium.
Earn $100+ per Premium Signup is based on the statistical average that a Premium Member stays for average 5 months at Wealthy Affiliate.
#3 Wealthy Affiliate Member Las Vagas Super Affiliate Conference
If you achieve 300 Premium Referrals within a year, you will be invited to hang out with Kyle, Carson and others on this all-paid private conference at Las Vagas. Who is not attracted to this?
Wealthy Affiliate Boot Camp Review – Example Scenarios
Now, let’s compute some examples from the calculator.
Attractive and realistic commission plan, hence the popularity of Wealthy Affiliate Boot Camp.
Please note that to achieve Scenario 2, a huge amount of hard work is required. This is not a get rich quick scheme.
Example 2 was added here to show you the potential of your future earning if you are committed to your business.
Should I start with Wealthy Affiliate Boot Camp?
This is a question many new members at Wealthy Affiliate would ask. I was one of them too.
I mentioned earlier that there are already tons of Wealthy Affiliate Review Pages/Post and “How to avoid Scam” sites on the Internet. There are so much competition out there already if you want to get started now.
Should you even start with Wealthy Affiliate Boot Camp?
There are many discussions on this in Wealthy Affiliate and I will share some of them with you.
#1 Newbies don’t join Boot Camp – tmaltz
“But don’t just blindly think, OK, I have no niche, let’s go into the Make Money Online niche. Unless that’s your true passion and you can work at if for about a year before you will see any regular income – Start first with the Entrepreneur Course and create a site based on your real passions.” [continue]
And I liked Jay’s reply,
“What I DO THINK is SATURATED is the WAY people are promoting WA. Find a bad ‘make money online’ product and funnel them into your WA review. Admittedly there are a plethora of low quality make money online products out there that this angle works fine and will never go away.
** But this can easily be fixed by diversifying your marketing angle **” [continue]
#2 Is WA Bootcamp Saturated or Too Competitive? – nathaniell
“So you want to join Wealthy Affiliate’s Bootcamp. But now you’re thinking, “Wow, there are hundreds, maybe even thousands of other people joining Bootcamp, taking the same training, and promoting the same product.
So is Bootcamp saturated? Is Bootcamp too competitive?
No. Not even close.” [continue]
#3 500+ visitors a day to my site. WA BootCamp results. – VitalityG
“People who are currently promoting WA should understand that the niche is MMO (make money online) which means it is quite competitive. I believe it will take 3-6 months to see some REALLY good results. You can still get traffic before that time, but it likely won’t be big. Do NOT let this stop you. Keep going. Trust me, it will eventually rise.” [continue]
Wealthy Affiliate Boot Camp Review – Is it a Scam?
In my personal opinion, all the Wealthy Affiliate Reviews are not scams. Wealthy Affiliate is a genuine place for many to learn how to start an Online Business from scratch.
It’s members who do not have any ideas of their own niche are attracted to start with Wealthy Affiliate Boot Camp. The commission plan looks realistic and promising.
Unless reviewing scam “make money online” products is your passion, it would be better to select a niche related to your personal passion to build your first Online Business.
If you want to get started with Wealthy Affiliate Boot Camp, I would advise you start from other marketing angles as suggested by Jay.
The are too many “How to Avoid Scam” sites currently and some have existed for quite a number of years. Google tends trust older sites more than new sites. You must be prepared to be persistence to see your results 6 months to a year down the road.
So, that’s it, I have revealed all! I hope this article will help you understand more about Wealthy Affiliate and it’s Boot Camp.
What do you think about Wealthy Affiliate Boot Camp? If you have any thoughts, feel free to leave your comments here.
Really great review! I haven’t seen anybody talking about the Wealthy Affiliate Boot Camp in their Wealthy Affiliate Reviews. It is true that there are waaaaaay too many Wealthy Affiliate Reviews out there and newbies will have a really hard time if they will attempt to do what is being thought at the Wealthy Affiliate Boot Camp.
I haven’t even looked at the Boot Camp and probably won’t be looking for a long time!
Keep up the good work! 🙂
Hi Rolandas, thanks for your comment.
Yes, there are waaaaaay too many Wealthy Affiliate Reviews out there. I sincerely believe that each of them is written from different individual’s perspective and learning experience they gained from Wealthy Affiliate. Of course with the intention of referring new members to Wealthy Affiliate.
Wealthy Affiliate Boot Camp is still doable. However, it is definitely going to take some time and hard work for a newbie to research, plan and creating contents from different marketing angles before he/she could see results. Persistence will help too.
It is great that you have your own niche to build on! When you have spare time in the future and decides to work with another product, you could consider Boot Camp again.
Wishing you the best!
Interesting Boot Camp training at Wealthy Affiliate. I really enjoyed this wealthy affiliate review scam article!
I once took an online course about affiliate marketing, but I found that I kept on having to pay for extras – really dug into my cash reserves. Is this going to happen at the Wealthy Affiliate Boot Camp?
Hey Chris, glad that you enjoyed reading this article.
As a Free* Starter Member, you are only able to access the first course at Boot Camp only. To access the rest of the Boot Camp courses, you have to be a premium member for $47/mth. If you join here, you are able to enjoy some discount for the first month at $19 and then $47/mth thereafter. That’s it!
As a Premium Member, you are able to access to all the courses at Online Entrepreneur Certification as well as Wealthy Affiliate Boot Camp. You are able to get 24/7 support from the community. You can use the website building tools and host your own unlimited domains here at Wealthy Affiliate.
Hope this clarifies. Wishing you the best!
I have been part of WA for slightly more than a month now and I’m still pretty much on the fence with joining Wealthy Affiliate Boot Camp.
A few concerns addressed by you ran through my mind and I think the number one factor that is stopping me is that I’m not good enough to drive a decent amount of traffic with my blog which means I won’t be able to earn much from it. Right now, I don’t see myself going anywhere with my niche.
Hi, thanks for your comment.
It is great the you have your own niche currently and I would recommend you to focus on it first before doing the Wealthy Affiliate Boot Camp.
Driving traffic is not an easy task in any niche. You have to do your research on low competition keywords using the free tools provided at Wealthy Affiliate or a paid keyword tool, Jaaxy.
Your website will take times to mature and gain trust by your visitors and the search engines. Continue to create valuable contents for your visitors and the traffic will grow gradually.
Wishing you the best!
What a refreshing review!
I’ve bumped into the name Wealthy Affiliate quite a few times in my journey to make money online. (which I’m still yet to do).
To be honest, I’ve always avoided it because of the low membership cost. I have always purchased training for hundreds, and I’m quite embarassed to say, even thousands of dollars and some of it has been re-hashed rubbish. My thinking was, is WA was so cheap, how could it be any good.
I thought I would bite the bullet and take a closer look at Wealthy Affiliate and from what I’ve read so far I’m very glad I did.
Can I just ask, did you have this website before joining Wealthy Affiliate, or did you build it based on the skills you learned there?
Hi Lee, thanks for your comment!
Yes, Wealthy Affiliate, in fact, is the only Internet Marketing Academy in the Online World that offers Free* Starter Membership! I was skeptical before too.
There is no harm creating a Free* account anyway I thought, so I test-drove the Wealthy Affiliate training, community, tools and free websites. The rest is history after that!
No, I do not have this website before I join Wealthy Affiliate. This is the very first website I created after learning from the Online Entrepreneur Certification Course taught at Wealthy Affiliate.
I also make use of the Site Feedback tool to get feedbacks and fine tune my websites regularly. I seek help from the many experts at Wealthy Affiliate, including Kyle, the owner of Wealthy Affiliate.
Wealthy Affiliate is definitely the place to go if you really want to learn and build your own Online Business!
Wishing you Success, Lee!
Wealthy Affiliate used to be $97 per month for many years. Also, it was a Paid only membership. There was no free option at all. These were back in the days when WA wasn’t 1/10th what it is now. They lowered the Premium and offered free Starter option so that the program could be available for more people.
Hi MM, thanks for sharing!
Indeed, the Premium Membership was lower than the past and WA has grown 10x better. Watch out for the Annual Black Friday Promotion, the premium could go even lower to less than a $1 a day. Bear in mind that there are no upsell or other hidden costs at all!
That’s Kyle’s and Carson’s vision of helping new Online Entrepreneurs getting started with minimal operating cost. 🙂
If you didn’t know how to build a profitable website, you certainly will once you have finished the Wealthy Affiliate bootcamp course. They take you through everything you need to know, from setting up your website, keyword research, writing content, all of it.
In fact, there are now no more excuses. The only thing a novice needs to bring to the table is commitment and a desire to learn. If they have that, the bootcamp will take them by the hand and show them everything they need to do to be successful online.
What is your favourite thing about Wealthy Affiliate?
Thanks for your testimonial Marcus!
You are absolutely right about commitment and a desire to learn. Wealthy Affiliate has all the hardware and it is the budding new Online Entrepreneur who needs to provide the software to make his/her Online Business a Success!
Well, my favourite thing about Wealthy Affiliate is the unlimited resource there. There are so many training to learn and upgrade our skills every day.
Wishing you Success!
Of all the Wealthy Affiliate reviews I’ve seen, yours is the most transparent. I appreciate the thoroughness you’ve used to clue others in, and that includes some of the links to the discussions.
With so many avoid scam sites out there, it seems that the angle is pretty well covered. Do you think however that some could still benefit if they brought in traffic through other related content at the same time?
Hi Rick, thanks for your comment.
It is indeed true that there are many avoid scam sites out there already. There are definitely many other approaches you can use to refer a visitor to Wealthy Affiliate.
Take a look at some suggestions by Jay, an ambassador from Wealthy Affiliate here.
Wishing you the best
Hi Edmund, your Wealthy Affiliate review is indeed a positive view of this exceptional site hosting platform.
But I must say it is regretful that you used such a title which is far different from the content, although you use a question mark in the title. In fact, I see 3 titles one after another all containing the word ‘scam’. I am an insider as you can guess perhaps, a member of WA, but if I was not, I guess I would not read the text after seeing so many words ‘scam’.
Sorry for being critical, it is just a pity to have such titles while in fact your review of WA is very positive and inviting for visitors.
Hi Jovo, thank for your constructive comment.
I feel sorry if the “Scam” word has made you feel bad about Wealthy Affiliate. In fact, I wrote this article is to address the concerns of many people who are new in Affiliate Marketing and never my intention to put Wealthy Affiliate down.
Many have heard about Wealthy Affiliate and Wealthy Affiliate is widely discussed in many forums such as Warrior Forum. They may be confused and are still looking for Wealthy Affiliate Review.
Due to large amounts of scams out there in the Online World, many people are careful not to fall into another scam. I hoped to use the word “Scam” with a “?” to attract their attention.
As you have acknowledged, this is a positive review, I am sure any reader can discern this too. 🙂
Congratulations on a thoroughly in depth review on Wealthy Affiliate!
Good to see such a unique approach and one that answers most question your readers may ask although I’m sure there are always some that some people will still have.
I especially liked how you got feedback from others and incorporated into your review which broadened your depth of research to higher level of credibility. Good work on this well written review. 🙂
Thank you for your comment.
I really hope that this review will reach out to many and show them another perspective of Wealthy Affiliate.
Albeit the competition may be slightly on the high side, Wealthy Affiliate Bootcamp can definitely help anyone who is not sure of what niche to pursue. 🙂
Wishing you the best!
This is a very thorough insight into the Wealthy Affiliate Bootcamp, Edmund.
I cannot recall the first day I joined the training but I know I was impressed the first day and this was back in 2009. What surprised me also was that you can actually email and send PM’s to the creators.
You have to remember back then being able to contact people who wanted to show you how to make a living and not scam you was a huge deal – the impression of online business was filled with even more doubt.
Kyle and Carson (the owners) made the business seemed transparent, understanding and helpful and it has been an important part of my knowledge and progression since I joined.
Hi A.D.Rice, thank you for you comment.
Indeed, Kyle and Carson have dedicated their effort and focus on making Wealthy Affiliate a transparent, understanding and helpful academy.
Wealthy Affiliate Bootcamp is a good example of showing and helping new Online Entrepreneurs making their first income through its own affiliate program.
Kyle remains humble and helpful even though he has already achieved great Success. He has helped me personally on several occasions when I have doubts.
Where else can you get the owner to help you personally? Only at Wealthy Affiliate, you can.
Wishing you the best!
Awesome Wealthy Affiliate review! I’ve been looking for the right program for some time now but didn’t have the right feel until I came across this Wealthy Affiliate of yours.
I’ve heard good things about it and I must say, I’m planning to start and work hard this upcoming new year. It would be awesome to have a website of my own and grow a business, will you be able to be my mentor? I don’t think I have the confidence to work on my own though.
Hey, Riaz! Thank you for your comment!
Wealthy Affiliate’s Online Entrepreneur Certification Course is created specifically for new budding Online Entrepreneurs like yourself. And myself, when I just started our more than a year back in 2014.
I know how you feel because I felt the same way too. I became a Premium Member within a week after I joined as Starter Member because I want to tap on the help and support from the supportive community. I had wanted the 1-1 coaching with Kyle, the owner of Wealthy Affiliate too.
After what I have gone through during my journey of building my Affiliate Marketing Website from scratch to making my first Passive Online Income, I have gained a lot of experience from what I have done wrong or done right.
If you are stuck in anywhere during your journey of building an Online Business or need a hand in anything, feel free to contact me at Wealthy Affiliate. I will provide you with invaluable advice from my own experience.
Do not worry too much, just take action from now, one step at a time. You’ll see yourself as Successful one day too!
Wow, wow, nice post!
It is the first time in a WA review, that I see so many “quotations” from other people! And damn, it gives what you said a lot more credibility!
At the start with your image I thought WA was a scam, but through your content I discovered that the affiliate Bootcamp might be an interesting option!
Thanks for your review dude!
Hi Romain, you are most welcome!
Yes indeed, it is always good to listen to what others are saying to get the broad and objective views on a topic.
Sometimes, I like to share what others are thinking in my article. As you mentioned, it will reinforce the topic and the credibility of the article.
Wealthy Affiliate Bootcamp is in a very interesting yet competitive make money online niche. You must be prepared to put in a lot of effort on your website and creating valuable contents to your visitors.
Be committed and persistent, you’ll definitely see your efforts get rewarded later.
Wishing you the best!
Is wealthy affiliate a scam? Hell no! Anyone can see that it is not remotely close to being a scam. There are many scams out there in the make money online niche but WA is far from that. It has personally helped me to build a website of my own (I have zero programming knowledge) and I’ve learned a lot from their training. Anyone who’s on the fence here should just jump in to see for themselves.
Thank you for sharing your testimony of Wealthy Affiliate with us!
Yup, new budding Online Entrepreneurs should get started with the Free* Online Entrepreneur Certification course (level 1) and experience it for yourself. I assure you that you’ll be impressed!
Wishing you the best!
Great review of Wealthy Affiliate! I’ve just recently joined and wanted to get more insight from a users perspective and this article was spot on.
As a new affiliate member, what was the most difficult thing for you from the beginning?
I look forward to hearing your response, thanks!
Thank you and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.
Well, when I was a new Wealthy Affiliate member, the most challenging thing for me was time management. There are tons of new things to learn, building my website from scratch, and attending to my family. Things started to get better and more manageable when I have my contents build up and when I see my first sale after about 6 months. 🙂
Hope this helps and wishing you the best!
