Wealthy Affiliate Online Business Community Review
Hi there, Edmund here.
In this article, I am going to share with you some insight of Wealthy Affiliate Community. Hopefully, you could learn more about Wealthy Affiliate after reading this.
First of all, take note that there are 2 types of members at Wealthy Affiliate.
Free* Starter member and Premium members.
As a Free* Starter member, you will have 7 days trial full access to the community. You can seek help and interact with Premium Members within this trial period.
After 7 days, your access will be blocked until you upgrade to Premium Membership.
But, is the Community worth it? Should you upgrade to Premium to interact with the Community further?
Let’s read on to find out more.
Wealthy Affiliate Online Business Community Review – First of its kind!
Wealthy Affiliate a.k.a Wealthy Affiliate University is an Open Education Project. Any members can create training for all other members’ benefit within the community.
The Free* Online Entrepreneur Certification Course (Level 1) offered is for new budding Online Entrepreneurs with no knowledge in Internet Marketing. This course teaches you the fundamental of building an Online Business.
After you completed the training, your level of understanding will be greatly improved. If you worked on your Online Business diligently and wants to improve the traction moving forward. You would definitely like to learn more advanced techniques and tips on how to scale your business to the next level.
This is where all the additional training created by experts within the Community becomes useful.
However, only a premium member to have the full access of the additional training. (This is one point of considerations whether you should upgrade to premium.)
Next, how do you look for the training you need?
Well, just ask.
Wealthy Affiliate Online Business Community Review – Asking Questions.
How to ask a question at Wealthy Affiliate? Let me share with you.
When you are the member’s area, right at the top of the page is a search bar.
For example, if you are looking for other training on “how to find keyword“, just type your question in the search bar.
This is what you’ll get as a result of the search.
Did you notice that the search results are divided into 2 sections?
You can now look for the training you need under the Training section.
If there is no training created to address your need, you could look under the Questions and Blogs section.
You could see if someone else has asked/blogged a similar question that was already answered.
What if you cannot find it under the Questions and Blogs section too?
Simple, just ask again under the search result window. 🙂
You could choose a Classroom from the drop down box to ask your question for more targeted response.
What are the Classrooms available? Let’s take a look.
Wealthy Affiliate Online Business Community Review – Live Chat.
Besides being able to access the community’s knowledge using the search bar. You could just type in your questions within the live chat area.
There are always people online within the Live Chat area because Wealthy Affiliate Members are from different parts of the World.
It is understandable that members within the Live Chat may not just be talking about business all the time. Sometimes, members just want to socialise a little and share a little about their life there.
However, do not hesitate to ask your questions within the Live Chat area. I assure you that there’ll be members ready to answer your questions there.
Even if no one within the Live Chat area can answer your questions, other members logged in will be notified that someone within the Live Chat area needed help too.
You see, help is always available within the community. 🙂

Wealthy Affiliate Online Business Community Review – Ranking and Statistic
You’ll receive a Wealthy Affiliate ranking based on your involvement within the community.
Let’s take a look at mine. 🙂
What does each graph mean?
As according to Kyle, the owner of Wealthy Affiliate, these are the meanings.
- Helper – How much you help and how timely it is within the community
- Creator – Do you blog, do you create discussions, do you create training
- Activity – How active are you within the community, do you leave comments, do you interact with new members
- Overall Member Rank – Based on a combination of the above
You will be accoladed with an Ambassador title if you are ranked 25 and below. (lower = higher ranked)
The ranking does not stay static, it will rise or drop based on the member’s activities described above.
Here are the current top 5 Ambassadors.
Are the ranking important for your business?
Nope, the ranking has nothing to do with your business. This is just an indication within Wealthy Affiliate’s Community how much does each member involved in the activities.
*Do note that a high-ranking member could be someone who blogs regularly, regardless of any topics. Therefore, one should not assume that an Ambassador is an expert in any subject related to Online Business. We should base on the training that they have created.
