Though I can see why somebody researching WA might thinks so...
WA has over 400K active members, and a community that is based on supporting and helping each other.
I've heard new members say about feeling almost freaked out by the warm welcome...
Until they realized it was genuine!
Something they simply where not expecting in the make money online space.
Also if you look for bad reviews of WA, you can't find any (I can't).
Is it because like a network marketing or MLM company everyone is promoting WA therefore all reviews are bound to be good?
Again no, most members of WA don't promote WA. The focus of the training is to show you how to create a profitable successful website that is focused on the niche of your choosing. Not WA.
The option to promote WA is there if you don't have a niche, or like me your fascinated by the whole make money online journey, and want to write about it.
And while we're on this point I would encourage anyone new to this to NOT start out trying to promote WA.
Because it's 10x harder to make money in this space than any other niche you care to mention.
So just to confirm WA is an online service company, providing training, hosting and software services to it's members (both free and paid).
If you do choose to promote WA there is no complex commission plan like the ones used by the MLM's. You simply earn a commission from the people you refer as an affiliate whilst they remain a premium member.
There is no down-line, or pass-up commissions or any of the other shenanigans associated with multi-level businesses.
Another tell-tale sign is that you can promote WA as a free member. No MLM could operate like this.
The reason there are no bad reviews?
It's a fair offer...
Free trial, premium service discounted for the first month, $47 per month thereafter.
You're free to 'cram' your training into a few premium months, and return to a free membership... because that's fair... isn't it.
And yes, if you cancel premium to return to free membership, you can always reinstate premium membership again when your circumstances suit you.
Also if you look at the WA sign up page...
Images of fast cars, and easy money.
No countdown timers or other scarcity BS.
WA is simply a company that has operated for over 11 years, and provides a value based service... no hype required.
