Of course, there are definitely Pros & Cons learning in any platform and here are some which I've experienced so you are able to make sound decision as you go along your internet marketing journey.
Pros & Cons of Wealthy Affiliate
- Can Start Learning Immediately. Full Trial subscription is offered in WA. Members can sign up “Starter Membership” with zero cost.
- Comprehensive step-by-step video training for people who wants to venture online. After each training, members are provided a checklist to complete a task before moving to the next one.
- 24/7 Live Chat & Interactive Weekly Video Classes. This is really important as internet environment is constantly changing. You must be alert of the changes to prepare best strategies for your business.
- Special Affiliate Bootcamp. WA offers a dedicated course for Internet Marketing niche. This enable newbie to start creating their online business immediately without the need to research a niche.
- Privilege to ask questions. Members can ask any questions via 24/7 live chat, posting or private messages to any member. Most questions will be answered within 24 hours.
- Friendly and Extremely Vibrant Community. WA community never fail to provide timely support and motivate each other.
- Direct Access to Product Owners (Kyle & Carson). The founders, Kyle & Carson care enough to allow members to directly contact them. I've contacted them personally and they do provide me with quality answers promptly.
- Build Free Websites. Members can build free websites with 2,000 beautifully designed themes to choose from.
- Free Internet Marketing Tools. To rank up in Google, you will need keyword research tool. There are unlimited searches in keyword tool provided in WA. Unless you need advance keyword research tool like Jaxxy (here's my personal Jaaxy Review), basically the existing free tool is sufficient for you to start.
- No “hard sell” on this platform. Apparently, hard sell marketing is not allowed in WA community. Therefore, Starter members will not feel pressured to subscribe to become paid Premium Members.
- First Video is 30 Minutes Long. It is often the 1st introduction video that is making most Starter members impatient. I've hear complaint from friends telling me that they do not have the patience to watch such a long winded video. Well, I have the same issue too when I first joined as free member in Dec 2014. But luckily on 29th May 2015 (yes, after 6 month idle), I finally have time to watch course 1 of Getting Started and decided to join Premium. I never regret since then (read my story here).
- You may not see results until month 6. I've read many success stories in WA that people only start to earn money after many months. If you want to have a sustainable business, you must build a solid foundation first before expecting a result. Building a business require lots of patience and hard work. So, be patient and do no give up.

Community of Internet Marketers
I’ve physically been to so many internet marketing workshops in Malaysia and sad to say, most come with limited training and ZERO support. There is either not enough support team to cater for the number of people who went through the class or the after class questions be left unanswered for weeks. None is as comprehensive as Wealthy Affiliate.
