Hi, Egon here.

There’s a reason why I put this list – Wealthy Affiliate FAQ – together. There is a tremendous need for a legit and simple training on how to make side money (or full time salary) online. And while Wealthy Affiliate training platform is one of the very best you can ever find, people are still hesitant.
The answer, sadly, is simple. Because of myriad of online scams which lure innocent people in order to rip them off.
Thousands of wonderful people have got burned and left wounded. So therefore, while they still have that burning desire in their chest – to learn on how to create a passive income stream online – they are afraid to try again.
Even if the training is 100% legit and free to get started – like in the case of Wealthy Affiliate.
Therefore, here is my Wealthy Affiliate FAQ. I have carefully handpicked every single question below. These questions have aroused from real life situations. Real, ordinary people have asked them. And I have tried to give them as detailed answers as possible.
I am the member of Wealthy Affiliate since 2013 (here’s my proof). It’s over 4 years now. If Wealthy Affiliate were a scam, I clearly would not stay with them that long (in fact, I would not stay with them at all).
So I can only confirm – Wealthy Affiliate is really what they claim to be. I personally am 100% satisfied. And I hope, you will be also.
OK. No more messing around. Here we go:

MLM (Multi-Level Marketing) companies have marketing strategies similar to pyramid schemes (yet when pyramid schemes are scams then MLM are legit). MLM is a business strategy where the company uses its existing distributors’ network to 1) direct sell its products/services and 2) to recruit new distributors. People who join MLM companies, earn the percentage by recruiting new distributors and selling products/services of the MLM Company.
Wealthy Affiliate, on the other hand, teaches you how to build an online business from scratch. It does not push you to promote any product like MLM does. Rather it is an all inclusive platform where you get the training, support, websites, community – to learn and to build your online campaign in a real way.

21. If I upgrade to Premium membership, will I continue from the free Wealthy Affiliate and I will get access to additional resources? Or I will start an entirely new business, and I have to start all over again?
When you upgrade to Premium membership, you continue where you were in Starter membership. Only This time you have access to much more within Wealthy Affiliate.
Everything that you had created and all the training you had completed in your Starter account is carried over to your Premium account.
Wealthy Affiliate provides you with the tools, training, support and websites that you need in order to succeed.
However, you still have to take action and work hard for your success. Wealthy Affiliate cannot guarantee you success.
There are some people who earn money in their first month. Yet generally speaking you must build a foundation for your online business in the first place. It takes time.
Also, it depends how much time you can invest into your campaign. Some people can allow 2-3 hours per day, others 5-7 hours, yet others 10-12 hours. It makes difference.
Those who want success fast are typically those who run after those „bright shiny objects“ and usually get burned and lose money by different scams.
Again, Wealthy Affiliate provides you everything you need to succeed online. If you take action and invest your time to build up your campaign, it will lead you to inevitable success.
