It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of Wealthy Affiliate.
I’ve been working in internet marketing for almost a decade and never have I seen a better, more robust affiliate social network than the Wealthy Affiliate community.
Incredible Response Rates
The first and biggest indicator of a strong affiliate community is the fact that Wealthy Affiliate boasts incredible response rates to any questions asked within the community.
As part of the trainings, you’re often asked to ‘pay-it-forward’ to help out new members. Since many people face similar kinds of issues, it’s likely that any problem you do have getting started with affiliate marketing has already been answered within the community, or else you can find someone who has solved the problem and can help you find the solution you need.
You’re also fairly likely to get a personal response from one of the company founders, Kyle and Carson, which is a huge plus in my mind. It’s rare for the owners of such an established company to be reaching out and connecting individually with members of their program. To me that indicates integrity and openness.
Wealthy Affiliate Success Stories
Another awesome point about the Wealthy Affiliate community is that people are encouraged to share their success stories.
This isn’t simply a way of boasting about affiliate sales, but provides an important motivational role for those that are new to affiliate marketing and face obstacles getting their site off the ground.
It’s normal for new websites to take 6 months or more to become established on search engines and within their niche communities, so hearing personal Wealthy Affiliate success stories is important to keep you trucking through those dreary first few months.

Significant Support for Free WA Members
Finally, Wealthy Affiliate does an amazing job of making sure that it’s free members don’t get left behind. Many comparable sites have extensive communities, but only for those who upgrade to premium, platinum, or enterprise level accounts.
At Wealthy Affiliate, free members have a strong level of access to the other site members. While a few features (like private messaging, for example) are reserved for the premium level only, free members can post questions to the community and view other questions, trainings, and answers as well.
It’s great support at a great price.
