The Crown Jewel

So with my WA ,Open Education Project Review out of the way, it may seam obvious that Wealthy Affiliate is held up as the Crown Jewel of Internet Business training on this site. With that known, I assure you that I will be reviewing other Internet Marketing sites in future blogs. I started out with my favorite of course, but I am open minded and curious as well to see what else out there can hold a candle to our precious WA.

I also feel that it is my duty to point out the real scams and traps that exist online, so you won’t fall pray as you search for your perfect fit of a training program. At this capacity I will be revealing some of the experiences that I had on my way to discovering WA. These incidences are what helped me recognize the value of WA as a safe alternative to the scams and frauds that litter the internet. Perhaps the biggest value the WA has to offer is the training and hands-on support that is Wealthy Affiliate. Have a look at this discussion I posted in one of WA’s classrooms. Surprise Support that is Ongoing. 

Till next post,



Wealthy Affiliate, Open Education Project Review

Wealthy Affiliate, Open Education Project
Overall Ranking: 98 of 100
Price: $0 Starter Membership
Owners: Kyle and Carson

Introduction to Wealthy Affiliate’s Open Education Project.

After years of attempting to build an Internet Business online, I have bounced from one bad  idea to another, just wasting money, time and resources along the way. This is one reason Wealthy  Affiliate sits high on my ratings list with a score of 98 from 100 points       . I could give them more but i just don’t believe in a perfect score. Sorry W.A. But with the way you are going they could just break that mold.

Wealthy Affiliate is the brain child of Kyle and Carson, two Canadian school mates steeped in the computer sciences. Their vision began in 2002 and a few years later they developed it into the first stages of what Wealthy Affiliate is today. Then just recently they launched the Open Education Project which in my opinion has blown the doors open     (no pun intended) of the Online Business training world. Every thing else pails in comparison. The Open Education Project is a complete package of the four essentials needed to succeed in today’s Internet Marketing landscape. They give you Training, Support, Tools and Service but best of all, you join a community of people like your-selves are striving for the same goals and rewards in a social-media style platform. This has put them on top as an industry leader and not going anywhere anytime soon. They are constantly evolving and adapting to the current conditions and  continuous changes of the internet. So where do we begin?

Lets look at the Pros:

  • Every level of training from newbie to advanced
  • Multi media training with video and text based tutorials
  • Step by step task oriented courses with completion management
  • Social interaction with 10’000 + other members
  • 2 Websites
  • Website development w/ hosting
  • Interactive Classrooms
  • Fully engaged founders and industry experts
  • Spam and scam free environment
  • Free start up membership (on going)
  • No credit card info needed to start.
  • 24/7/357 live and interactive help

And the Cons are:

  • Potential information overload

Unlike anything out there, this interactive membership site is state of the art, Built on a  social-media platform complete with all the tools, support and services needed to develop an online business that produces real results for anyone who applies  the training.        O.E.P. is designed like a university with fellow student in various stages  of achievement, guided by industry experts and faculty, all focused on member success.

So what dose it cost?

Starter Memberships: $0, Just sign up for a free account                                                       Premium Memberships: $47 Monthly / $359 Per Year

My opinion is:

Finally, an internet business training program where you can’t go wrong. You cant lose any money because it doesn’t cost anything to start, you cant waste any time because the resources you will find will be beneficial even if you don’t take full advantage. And now we get to the true value, There is nothing more powerful than having a full community of people doing something along side you and sharing their frustrations and successes. This aspect alone here at Wealthy Affiliate University, motivates you and gives you the confidence that everyone needs to succeed, which is why most other programs fail, cause you feel all alone in your endeavors, never here.

My verdict is:

Wealthy Affiliates, Open Education Project is totally legit and  a perfect  pairing  for anyone who wants to avoid scams and receive a real education on building a business that delivers an income online. The sky is the limit. Simple apply your determination, follow the action steps, add in your passion and  imagination and you will succeed. Plus you will gain an lot of new friends who share in your same dreams along the way.
