What Seperates Wealthy Affiliate From the Rest?

There are so many get rich quick schemes on the Internet today and it makes it hard to weed out of all the scams. Besides, researching the word scam and the company you have your doubts about. How do you know-for-sure if the company is a scam? How do you know if Wealthy Affiliate is not a scam? These are the questions everyone wants answered and the answers are-provided within this article.

The simplest technique to-determine if the company you are-interested-in is a scam, is to research the company name in the Better Business Bureau's database. Search to see what is-listed under the company's description and read it carefully. On every website they feature an "about me" and "contact us" pages, these pages will-inform you of any suspicious activity. This information will give you an idea how the company represents themselves and you can discover a lot by reading their information.

In my opinion, the "contact us" page is very significant, because most scams do not-provide enough information on this page and are not business savvy. That's when my instincts tell me that something about this company is shady. If the company has a P.O. Box, than that should immediately signal some red flags. It should include a phone number, physical address and email contact. Personally, I like to call the company and ask knowledgeable questions to conduct my own thorough analysis of the company's intentions.

Another easy way to discover if the company is a fraud, is basically just typing the company name in Google. You should discover some reviews or information describing whether the company is legit or not. For the last year of being a member at Wealthy Affiliate, I have noticed there are people who believe it's a scam. Mostly, these are-disgruntled ex-members who failed at becoming successful Internet Marketers.

Of-course everyone who tries this method will-not-be an instant success or produce a-sufficient income. However, if you do not put a valiant effort towards your goals, than what do you really expect to get out of it? I will bet a week's pay-check that is exactly what happens most of the time. If you do the research, follow the steps and stick with the program, than the odds of you achieving your goals are fairly high. What makes Wealthy Affiliate different from the other methods is that they are more of a training program, than a get rich quick scheme.

In conclusion, I am extremely satisfied with the results I have received from Wealthy Affiliate that I would recommend it to my closest friends and family members. If I didn't have complete trust in this program, I would never risk their financial stability if I wasn't completely sure. My only concerns are how long the "niche websites" will survive on the Internet and if the government will discover a way to-terminate our daily revenues. If you are reading this article, than I implore you to take a hard look at Wealthy Affiliate and make your decision to start earning money from your own home.

I enjoyed the article, however the BBB is not the "be all, end all" it is purported to be. It is well documented that it is NOT a government organization, but a 501 (c) 3 non profit organization with 24 of its top executives making over six figures a year. They have a telemarketing division that sells its 'A+' ratings for a $425 a year membership. There have been A+ ratings given to everyone from the Hamas terrorist organization to an Aryan Nation skinhead organization, while reputable businesses like Wolfgang Puck's and Disney have suffered 'F' ratings for refusing to pay the membership fees. Just a little FYI for everyone that thinks that the BBB is a neutral government agency. It is a private organization whose misappropriates its power to make money.

What is thought to be common sense is often overlooked by people staring at the big picture without putting together all the pieces to make make that picture a reality. the BBB is a great tool to use I will admit, but the part about the scams.. Lets say WA did their homework and know "Scam" and "review" are the most common things people search for on google. It's why majority of the first page is nothing more than good reviews. Not knocking it by any means.. because it says it is indeed worth it. But less on that.. Great Article ;p

Nice article Robert. Good job. I do expect the Internet is here to stay! Government taxation is sure to to slow it down eventually. And we'll probably see a lot of mishandling of untangling ownership rights. But! Your daily revenues are not likely to be terminated. You're a small business owner! That's what the world economy needs right now. In the past, small business hired people and kept job flow going. Now, small business is likely to have a lot more people who "Do it Yourself!" And small business is more likely to hire other do it yourself businesses to do tasks that they may have hired employees for in the past or in an old-style business. blessings, Cynthia

Thanks Cynthia, Yeah I sure hope so! I love being my own boss and would hate to go back to working for someone else. I feel like William Wallace, Freeeedoooom!!!!!

Robert, Yes. Being a small business owner online is way better than having employees! Being a client of other small businesses is less stressful than being in charge of telling someone what to do. Much more fun, too. Freedom from employer; freedom from employees! blessings, Cynthia

Definitely, I love being my own boss! Plus, I have been a manager and a supervisor before, but there is nothing like running your own company and when you see the success it is having there is not a greater feeling than the accomplishment you have achieved.

Thanks Robert. This is very informative article. I'm already on my 2nd month in Wealthy Affiliate & I think their training programs are the best. Before joining WA, I have read almost all their reviews - and all are highly positive, except for one review whose author doesn't seem to like writing articles.
