Affilorama vs Wealthy Affiliate – Battle for the #1 Spot

By | December 18, 2014

affilorama vs wealthy affiliateAffilorama vs Wealthy Affiliate… here these two heavy weight affiliate marketing programs go head-to-head to see which comes out on top.

I have joined both programs so I have an insider’s perspective into the good and bad of each program.

What They Have in Common


Both programs are training platforms that are designed for beginners to intermediate internet marketers to learn how to make money online. Both have a pretty good support system and forums where  you can interact with other members. In my opinion, this interaction is essential for success to get advice and support.

Both Affilorama and Wealthy Affiliate also have affiliate opportunities where you can earn money by promoting their programs.

Scam Alert?


Make Money Online Scam

Don’t fall for a rip-off program.

The world of internet marketing is saturated with scams and ripoffs. When I first set out to make money online I was sucked into some of these scams and learned some valuable lessons about how to avoid being ripped off.

I developed 8 Signs of Internet Scams to help people like you avoid the same programs that cost me way too much money. I used these 8 signs to evaluate both programs and you can read my findings in Is Affilorama a Scam? and Is Wealthy Affiliate a Scam?

To save you the hassle of reading both articles I can assure you that both Affilorama and Wealthy Affiliate are legitimate.

My full reviews


I also conducted full reviews of both programs to give you more details.  After reading this post I am sure that you will have enough information to decide which is the right program for you. If you prefer all the details then you will find them in my full reviews.

The Cost


Affilorama:

  • Free Membership: Self explanatory
  • Premium Membership: $1 for the first month, $67 for each additional month
  • AffiloTheme: $97
  • AffiloBlueprint: $197
  • AffliloJetpack: $997

Wealthy Affiliate:

  • Free Membership: Self explanatory
  • Premium Membership: $19 for the first month, $47 for each additional month

As you can see there is a price difference between the two programs. The premium membership for Affilorama is about $20 more and they have about $1,300 of upsells. In Wealthy Affiliate you get everything with the premium membership.

Free Membership Comparison:


Affilorama Free Membership:

Here’s a breakdown of what you what you get with the Affilorama free membership. You’ll get the Affiliate Marketing Quick-Start Guide, Roadmap to Success, and over 100 video lessons.

Affilorama vs Wealthy Affiliate

There really is a lot of training in the free Affilorama membership. Most of the training has a video lesson with a written version below it. The lessons are organized like a blog and cover about 7 different topics. You also have some access to their forums.

Wealthy Affiliate Free Membership:

Here’s a breakdown of the Wealthy Affiliate free membership. You get live support, 2 free websites, the beginner training course (10 lessons), affiliate bootcamp training (10 lessons), 1-on-1 coaching, access to the keyword research tool and hundreds of other training videos and lessons.

Wealthy Affiliate also has a ton of training in the free membership. Most of the formal lessons are video based with the written version included. The 1-on-1 coaching is actually from a lot of different people, which is a huge plus. In addition to the 20 lessons, you get access to a ton of other training.

Premium Memberships


Affilorama Premium:

To be honest I was somewhat disappointed by the Affilorama premium membership. Since there was a lot of training in the free version, I expected to see more training that I could count. While there was more training, there just wasn’t that much more.

Here is a breakdown of what you get in the premium membership.

affilorama vs wealthy affiliate

The Affilorama magazine is only 1 issue and it is nothing to get excited about. The Premium Vault is only 19 training videos and 7 of them deal with creating digital products. They have premium hosting, but no website builder. If you are a newbie this is will create a headache for you because creating a website can be like learning another language. You can get a website builder with Affilorama but that will cost you another $97.

Wealthy Affiliate Premium:

With Affilorama you get a lot of training with the free membership but not a lot with the premium. Wealthy Affiliate is completely different. There you get a lot of training in the free program, but you get A TON of training in the premium.

Here is a quick overview of what you get with the premium:

affilorama vs wealthy affiliate

Some of the highlights of the premium membership are:

  • 24/7 live support
  • 5 phases of training modules
  • 7 affiliate bootcamp training modules
  • Weekly Webinars with years of archives
  • Unlimited domain hosting with an easy website builder program.

If you don’t believe me when I say their website builder is easy just check out this video How to Build a Website in Under 30 Seconds.

If you can follow that training then you can follow every other training in their program.

One thing I really like about the Wealthy Affiliate premium over Affilorama is that it gives you access to everything. And this brings us to the upsells…

Upsells


Affilorama Upsells:

Affilorama has three main upsells:

  • AffiloTheme: $97
  • AffiloBlueprint: $197
  • AffliloJetpack: $997

affilorama vs wealthy affiliate

So you need to pay $1,291 plus $67 per month to get everything in the Affilorama program. This was one of the biggest turn-offs for me. When I pay for a premium membership I expect to get more, especially if its one of the most expensive premiums out there.

Wealthy Affiliate Upsells:

There are no upsells past the premium membership for Wealthy Affiliate. Once you go premium you get EVERYTHING. This is one of the features that puts Wealthy Affiliate above Affilorama in my opinion.

Support – Affilorama vs Wealthy Affiliate:


While there are differences in the support for the two programs, they are both pretty good so I won’t go into too much detail here. The main difference is that Wealthy Affiliate has 24/7 live support and Affilorama has a ticket system.

I used the support for each program and they are both pretty good.

Pros and Cons


Some of these point have already been mentioned so I will only touch on the pros and cons briefly:

Affilorama:

Pros

  • Free trial membership that lets you test the program before you buy
  • The training is easy to understand
  • There is a lot of training, even in the free membership
  • Good support system

Cons

  • The training is difficult to navigate
  • Some of the training is outdated
  • Not a true step-by-step unless you buy one of the upgrades
  • $20 more per month than Wealthy Affiliate

Wealthy Affiliate:

Pros

  • Very active community
  • Step-by-Step training modules
  • 24/7 live support
  • 1-on-1 coaching
  • Weekly live webinars
  • Years worth of webinar archives
  • Great support

Cons

  • The amount of training and resources can be overwhelming at first if you do not stick to the lessons.
  • The program is set up similar to facebook so if you are distracted by social media you may find yourself browsing profiles when you should be working.

The Final Word


My final comparison of Affilorama vs Wealthy Affiliate touches on some of the important aspects of any program that will teach you how to make money online.

As you can see, Wealthy Affiliate is the better program, especially if you are a beginner just starting out. I recommend that you start with the FREE Wealthy Affiliate membership to see if the program is right for you.

Since both offer free memberships shouldn’t I try both?

There is nothing stopping you from trying both, but I don’t recommend this. Continually switching from product to product will 100% guarantee that you will not make any money. Programs like these take time so if you don’t fully apply yourself, you won’t succeed.

For this reason I don’t recommend that you try both of the free memberships at the same time. You can’t fully apply yourself to 2 programs at the same time so you’re better off choosing 1.

    I have said this before and will say it again. The training at Wealthy Affiliate is one of the best I have ever encountered online and it’s the best investment I have ever made for my personal development, probably way better than what I have paid for college. My yearly renewal is coming up and I have no intention of leaving until I reach my goals.
