Price: Free (Basic), $67/month (Premium) + Upsells

Free Training: 80+ Video Tutorials with written notes covering the basics about setting up your affiliate marketing business, SEO, PPC and some interviews

Premium Training: Monthly subscription-based Affiliate Marketing resources and training which include webinars, interviews, etc.

Support: Call & Email support provided but not 24/7, hardly to get any support from the owner directly, support from thousands of Affilorama members worldwide

Other Resources: AffilioBlueprint ($197), AffiloJetpack ($997), AffiloTools (Free for Affilorama members)

I'll personally recommend Wealthy Affiliate over Affilorama for the following reasons:

  1. Wealthy Affiliate is much cheaper than Affilorama
  2. But at the same time, WA's training and resources are more thorough and up-to-date
  3. WA support is much better than Affilorama (I personally enjoy the 24/7 professional support from WA)
  4. There's a 24/7 Live Chat area in WA where you can get immediate help as well

Now, let's dive into detailed comparison between the 2 platforms...

Wealthy Affiliate VS Affilorama: Pricing

Similarity

Both platforms have a Free Membership option which is great. They don't have a limited trial period as well. Which means you can enjoy their Free Membership for as long as you want. (i.e. lifetime access)

Also, they both have a 7-Day Premium Membership promotion period. For Wealthy Affiliate, you can enjoy your first month of Premium Membership at $19 while you can get first month Affilorama Premium Membership at just $1.

This promotion is only applicable if you upgrade within 7 days for both platforms.

Difference

Wealthy Affiliate Premium Membership charges at $49 per month and $359 per year. Whilst Affilorama Premium Membership charges at $69 per month. There's no yearly payment for Affilorama but I heard there's a 3-year membership price at $497. To get this 3-year membership, you'll need to contact Affilorama support for it.

Wealthy Affiliate VS Affilorama: Training

Free Training

Wealthy Affiliate has 10 Lessons that are available to Free Starter Members. These are the 10 lessons included:

online entrepreneur certification course
  • Introduction to Wealthy Affiliate & Affiliate Marketing
  • Understand How to Make Money Online
  • Choose a Niche
  • Building Your Own Niche Website
  • Setting Up Your Website
  • Getting Your Site Ready for Search Engines
  • Creating Your Initial Website Content
  • Creating Custom Menus on Your Website
  • Understanding Keywords
  • Recap & Upgrade to Premium

For Affilorama, their Free Training includes more than 80 Video Tutorials with written notes in PDF form that cover much more affiliate marketing information. These include:

  • Basics of affiliate marketing 
  • Setting up your domain, hosting and website
  • SEO, Email marketing, PPC, etc...

As you can see, Affilorama's Free Training is more thorough as compared to Wealthy Affiliate's Free Training. WA's Free Training is much limited and more focused on upgrading to Premium Membership.

Premium Training

As for Premium Training, Wealthy Affiliate is much better than Affilorama as Affilorama Premium Training does not have much more value than its Free Training. What's included is just a couple of more video training as well as AffiloMagazine which includes a monthly webinar, interview and some other resources.

On the other hand, Wealthy Affiliate's Premium Membership grants you access to everything within the platform. This include:

  • 50 Affiliate Marketing Lessons
  • Weekly Live Training on advanced internet marketing topics
  • Thousands of Community Training on a wide range of topics

Basically, there are endless of knowledge you can learn from Wealthy Affiliate because there are new training being added every single day and there's a weekly live training by WA coach.

And one of the biggest difference between WA and Affilorama is that WA's training are constantly being updated while Affilorama's training are not. Some of Affilorama's training are outdated. This includes training on backlinks and Private Label Right (PLR) contents.

Wealthy Affiliate VS Affilorama: Support

In terms of support, Wealthy Affiliate wins Affilorama once again.

Wealthy Affiliate has a very complete support system which includes:

  • 24/7 Technical Support (for any problems you face on your website)
  • 24/7 Live Chat within the community for you to get immediate help anytime
  • Able to Private Message all the members so you can get help directly from more experienced members
  • Discussion areas within each training so you won't get lost at each step
  • Able to privately contact the owners of Wealthy Affiliate should you have any inquiries

For Affilorama, these are the supports included:

  • Call Support (Mon-Fri 5pm to 1am EST)
  • Email Support (reply within 24 hours)
  • Forum where you can get help from fellow Affilorama members

As you can see, Wealthy Affiliate has a much more comprehensive support system than Affilorama for sure.

Wealthy Affiliate VS Affilorama: Other Resources

Wealthy Affiliate

These are the additional resources you'll get as a Wealthy Affiliate FREE Member:

  • Website Builder
  • 2 FREE websites running on SiteRubix subdomain (you can transfer it to your own domain anytime)
  • Free Trial Keyword Research Tool

These are the additional resources you'll get as a Wealthy Affiliate Premium Member:

  • Hosting up to 25 domains
  • FREE SSL Certificates for all your websites
  • Full access to Wealthy Affiliate's Keyword Research Tool (which include SERP analysis, Site Ranking Research, Affiliate Program research, etc.)
  • Website Feedback and Commenting platform which allows people to offer feedback and comments on your website

If you're a Premium Member, everything within WA will be available to you without any upsells. However, this is not the case for Affilorama. Let's take a look...

Affilorama

With Affilorama Premium Membership, you can host up to 15 domains in their platform. Apart from that, below are their 3 main resources available:

#1 AffiloBlueprint ($197)

AffiloBlueprint is a 12-week step-by-step course with detailed videos to guide you on how to set up your affiliate website and how to start running your own affiliate marketing business. There are homework for you to complete every week so that you won't get lost.

With AffiloBlueprint, you'll have access to 1-month Affilorama Premium Membership. However, this is a one-time investment of $197 which makes me wonder what's the difference between AffiloBlueprint and Affilorama Premium since they are very similar. I'm also wondering why this step-by-step video course is not included in Affilorama Premium. Probably it's just an additional upsell to make money?

#2 AffiloTools (Free for Premium Members)

AffiloTools is a tool package that includes:

  • Search Engine data
  • Keyword Research
  • Website Stats Tracking
  • Competitor Analysis
  • Site Health
  • Backlink builder

This is a decent tool for package for internet marketers. However, tools like backlink builder is kind of outdated as building backlinks is not that relevant today.

#3 AffiloJetpack ($997)

AffiloJetpack is a done-for-you affiliate marketing package which includes:

  • 5 high-profit-potential niche packs
  • WordPress theme
  • 90 top-quality newsletter
  • 3 ebooks
  • 20 articles
  • Professionally designed graphics
  • One-click hosting for 1 year
  • Traffic generation training

Basically, this is for those who don't want to do-it-yourself and and have the capital to invest in this high-ticket package to get results faster.

Conclusion

Both Wealthy Affiliate and Affilorama are not scams. They are two of the top leading platforms in this affiliate marketing training market.

And both have their own pros and cons. But what I think is more important today is training and support as these are the most important thing for beginners who want to learn affiliate marketing.

For training, Wealthy Affiliate clearly wins Affilorama as some of Affilorama's training is outdated while Wealthy Affiliate has fresh new content being added and updated every single day.

For support, Wealthy Affiliate again clearly wins Affilorama as they have a very complete and convenient support system for anyone to get help 24/7.

So, I guess the winner is very clear. Drum roll please... (LOL)

WINNER

I agree with you, Jerry, Wealthy Affiliate is the best platform around. This is not to say that Affilorama is bad, in any way. However, the amount of accessible training and the support at WA for all levels of learning is staggering! I can’t recommend it enough.
Best,
Alenka

    Thanks a lot Alenka. I’m glad you agree with me. A lot of WA haters criticize a lot about WA members. But to be honest, how many of such hater are really making good money online, right?

I’d have to disagree, I think Affilorama is better. I started with it about 6 years ago and gave me an epic foundation. It’s obviously been updated since then but can’t complain about the training and products. I am sure Wealthy Affiliate is just as good. At the end of the day its all about taking action anyway. Cheers 🙂

    Yea I agree that both Affilorama and Wealthy Affiliate are good platforms. At least, they’re not like Digital Altitude and MOBE. Unfortunately, both of them have been shut down by FTC this year.

    It’s such an irony that MOBE actually sued DA and Wealthy Affiliate before, LOL.

    You’re right that as long as we’re willing to take action, we’re going to achieve our goals.

    Robbie, I would just like to say that I am on Jerry’s side. You say that you are sure that WA is just as good but that sounds to me like you really haven’t checked it out to see for yourself.

    I suggest that you go and have a look around before you presume WA to be just as good.

    Can’t disagree with you on your second point though. Nothing happens unless one takes action.

    I’m glad you have been successful with the Affilorama platform and I wish you even greater success.

Two great reviews for the price of one :-). Thanks Jerry. I completely agree. Wealthy Affiliate stacks up as a much better affiliate program, though to be fair Affilorama also has its good points. But overall, Wealthy Affiliate is the best program… and by some way.
Thanks again for sharing.
