Both Affilorama and Wealthy Affiliate are programs I highly recommend on this website (and in general), but in my experience, as long you have 1 good affiliate program at hand to help you build a business, that’s really all you need to succeed.
So if push comes to shove, the question is which of these programs is better? In my opinion it’s Wealthy Affiliate, but I’m going to base that decision on 5 major factors:
Affilorama vs Wealthy Affiliate (the 5 factors):
- Which program has more benefits overall?
- Which program has better support?
- Which program has more tools to help you build an affiliate business?
- Which program has a better likelihood to help you succeed online?
- Which program is more cost effective?
I’m going to be answering these questions below but before I do, I want to give people a transparent review of these programs and my history with them, as well as the similarities they share.
And that’s what I’m going to begin with so you understand what each program is and their main benefits that they offer:
Where Affilorama and Wealthy Affiliate get great scores:
1) Both programs have amazing free training anyone can access. In other words, whatever your doubts, you can try either program free to decide.
2) Both programs have a pretty affordable upgrade in their respective areas.
3) Both programs in my opinion teach great affiliate marketing principals and can help you succeed.
4) Both programs have good/great support.
5) And finally, both programs are some of the few legitimate affiliate marketing programs I recommend.
My history with Affilorama explained:
I heard about Affilorama in 2015 and did a review of it then. At the time, I joined their free membership and tried some of their tools like Traffic Travis. My thoughts on that program were mixed, but as for Affilorama, they were and are still quite high.
In fact, since the first time I looked over that program, they have gotten better overall and to this day, I would highly recommend them to anyone. I came into that program with a good understanding of affiliate marketing already and having seen results in it thanks to Wealthy Affiliate, so I was quickly able to compare the training in Affilorama and see that it did (and does) work.
I am actually still an affiliate for this program and did make one or a few sales for it, one of which was a high ticket one (you can promote them if you’re a member of Clickbank).
My history with Wealthy Affiliate explained:
I joined that program in 2007 which is why I said I had history with the industry prior to joining Affilorama. Wealthy Affiliate was and still is my #1 recommendation for learning affiliate marketing.
At the same time, I’ve been a member there since 2007 and have no plans on leaving. This program in my personal opinion has evolved a great deal in more ways than any other program I’ve ever reviewed, including Affilorama and this evolution has set it far above any other program I’ve seen since. This is why I often tell people that while there are legitimate affiliate marketing programs out there, the benefits in WA make it a distant first compared to the others.
I’ve made over $1 million in affiliate sales thanks to this program across the many different methods available and still run a business thanks to this program.

Wealthy Affiliate vs Affilorama. The 5 factors and which program is better:
Now it’s time to look back at the 5 factors I labeled earlier as score cards for each program and give you my take on it. I’m going to sound biased here, but based on what I’ve seen in both programs, I think Wealthy Affiliate wins out in every factor, sometimes by a little and sometimes by a lot.
I will also be explaining why this is, so you won’t think my opinion is just me being a fan, but an objective thinker. So let’s begin:
Which program has more benefits overall? Wealthy Affiliate:
On a 1-10 scale, I’d give Affilorama a 7 here and Wealthy Affiliate a 10. In Wealthy Affiliate, you simply get more from the program, whether you join as a free member or upgrade and naturally, as an upgraded member, more benefits come with that.
Without getting into too many details, here’s the summary:
As a free member of Affilorama, you basically get access to a ton of great, good support, and free content in helping you start affiliate marketing. From niche training, to explanations on how the business works, it’s a great entry education to the business.
However, in Wealthy Affiliate, you get even more free training, but also 1 website, and a ton of community help included. This gives you more than just reading material to work with, but more of an action plan to actually begin your business.
Which program has better support? Wealthy Affiliate again:
On the same 1-10 score, I’d give Affilorama a 7 out of 10 here and Wealthy Affiliate another 10 score.
In Affilorama, you get access to a live help chat support and forum to post your questions. In Wealthy Affiliate, you get live chat, forum support, site support (for your sites too), and more. There is also a faster response time in my personal opinion.
There are over 2 million members inside Wealthy Affiliate, so on top of the great support, there is also a highly engaging and helpful community to boot.
Which program has more tools to help you build an affiliate business? Wealthy Affiliate:
An affiliate business needs to have certain mandatory tools to operate and in Wealthy Affiliate, you simply get more to make that happen. Free members get 1 website to hold onto, but upgraded members just get more and more tools to boot.
Which program has a better likelihood to help you succeed online? Wealthy Affiliate:
This is a tough call because if you follow either program’s tutorials and apply it, you can succeed. However, I do believe you get more resources in Wealthy Affiliate to actually help you there which is why I am going to recommend that program here again.
Which program is more cost effective? Wealthy Affiliate:
Affilorama currently has 3 product packages to buy and some of them are cheap, and others are not. Wealthy Affiliate also has 3 memberships, and they all cost monthly from $49 to $99 a month.
This of course can add up to more costs down the line than Affilorama, but considering that Wealthy Affiliate gives you added tools to your business that you would have to pay monthly for outside the program anyway, those costs aren’t a deal breaker by any means.
My final thoughts: Both Affilorama and Wealthy Affiliate rock, but my choice is the latter.
I’ve been very content to be a part of Wealthy Affiliate since I joined and to me, that program set the bar for what a good program should have. While I have seen programs (such as Affilorama) come close to the impressions Wealthy Affiliate gave me, WA just simply has evolved and continues to grow at a faster pace than any other good program out there.
And I’m not even mentioning the plethora of bad programs either, but you get the point. In the end, if you think I’m being too biased, you are welcome to join either program for free and make a decision on which one to stick to.
