WHO AM I?
My name is Ben Stewart and I have to tell you about the best tool for ANYONE searching for a way to make money from home, replacing an income, or just wanting to do something they love and ACTUALLY make money doing it. My answer is less about accomplishments, and more about what makes me proud. I am a proud father of 8 amazing kids, married to my beautiful bride of 18 years, and I get to saaspend non-family time pastoring an incredible church in Middle Tennessee.
The Review of Wealthy Affiliate below is from personal experience and from my desire to help others get the same resources that have created the ability to see my dreams come true.
I’ll also go through the many benefits to joining Wealthy Affiliate!

I remember when I was leaving the military and heading back to college to get my Electrical Engineering degree. While talking with my dad about school he told me he was back in school too.
Me: Really dad? What classes are you taking?
Dad: I am just taking one class at a time
Me: But Dad, that’s going to take you 10 years to graduate!
Dad: Yep but Ben, ten years will pass either way. One one path I can have a degree in ten years, or on the other path I will be at the same spot I am right now…I am choosing to have a degree (one class at a time).
I learned two valuable points that day; 1 – My dad is the best coach ever. 2 – I can accomplish ANYTHING one step at a time! The truth for me is that I LOVE coaching people – it is what I do for a living!
Prior to my involvement with Wealthy Affiliate, my history of Affiliate Marketing Education (not Wealthy Affiliate) includes spending upwards to $2500 to be coached by the best in the industry. I have watched 1000’s of videos, tried every shiny object for building an online business and have been disappointed time and time again by the promise with no return, both financially and relationally.

Jaxxy Keyword Tool
Jaaxy is the ONLY keyword and research platform developed by affiliate marketers FOR affiliate marketers. With Jaxxy keyword research you can explore all the different word combinations and results within a search online of your Niche Idea.
Not only that, but Jaxxy will show you how many monthly searches are for your term (giving you an idea of your uniqueness), how many sites are using your term, the rating of your term AND even suggested web domain names. Your keyword and competitive research can now be a whole lot easier!
The best part – in our training we will show you how to use this tool to the BEST of it’s ability – saving you HOURS and HOURS of research, and costly expenses in using a research tool. Best of all – it is included in your membership to Wealthy Affiliate
When I first started in this business I went to one place for my domain name (website address), and another one for hosting (a server for putting my website online) and then another platform to build my website and posts (WordPress + Theme generators). All of this cost me a ton of money for each site, and a lot of wasted time in setting up the name registration, transferring name servers, etc. Needless to say, by the time I was building content – I was tired of my OWN website!
With Wealthy Affiliate we have all of these small, but significant, tasks all bundled into one beautiful, user friendly, yet powerful tool. Let me break it down for you!
Site Builder (SiteRubix)
SiteRubix is a tool that allows you to build website in less than 1 minute! It breaks down the process into 4 simple steps that gives you an outcome that you want (without all the hassle) so you can spend more time on content and appearance. Those steps are; What kind of site (free or domain name), Name your website (for online SEO start), Choose a look (with over 1000 WordPress themes to choose from), and lastly Build (it does all the leg work on the backend). It is that simple.
The last thing you want to do is fuss with installing WordPress and the challenges it comes with. Using SiteRubix, I’ve been able to install WordPress within 60 seconds from adding the domain name to logging into the site.
Add to that simple process things like:
SiteManager – consistently accesses your site health with a measure on health, indexing rank, posts, pages, even login credentials for simple 1-click access to your websites (up to 25).
SiteComments/SiteFeedback – A great tool for getting and leaving feedback on your site and others. A community builder of getting more attention to your site on the google page rankings
SiteSupport – 24/7 FAST support for your sites. This team is consistently the quickest, friendliest and most knowledgeable support team that I have dealt with.
SiteContent – An EASY (with templates) writing tool for creating content for your websites without even going into wordpress to build. For those who are new to WordPress this is a huge advantage – and for those of us who are very common to WordPress this saves us time!
Along with all the above features – Wealthy Affiliate includes hosting as well. In my past experience, I have paid for the cheap services and thought they were amazing, until I started getting into making money or trying to get support for more complex issues. I switched to another “cheap” service and had another great year only followed by expensive renewals and a loss in privacy. Site Hosting was my first reason for coming to Wealthy Affiliate, finding a hosting service that would allow me to host my 10 plus sites, give great support and not lose my privacy.
Along with that you get some incredible features:
Fastest Loading Speeds: Slow web hosting can impact your web rankings – so Site speed is one of the core points of Site Rubix. Using one of the most stable servers (Amazon) SiteRubix keeps your website fast and up and running!
Host Security: Like I stated earlier – I’ve had my identity stolen (thankful I had my own service protection). SiteRubix through Wealthy Affiliate automatically comes with security for your account, privacy from public information (and all the telemarketers calling offering services) – keeping your site from hacking and stolen information.
Web Hosting Backup – SiteRubix consistently runs a “mirror” version of your website on their servers so that you will never have a down site – but they also take daily snapshot backups of your website just in case you do something, or lose something that you want to retrieve. Best part of all of this? All of this comes with your premium membership, there is no additional cost to host your website (plus another 24 websites)!
Starter Members = 2 Free Websites (on .siterubix.com domain)
Premium Members = 50 Websites (25 free .siterubix.com website and 25 on your OWN Domains)
Never again will I purchase a domain without privacy feature. Uggg – the telemarketers that call relentlessly offering to build my site, create a shopify account, etc. This part of Wealthy affiliate just makes sense! You can purchase your domain right through the SiteDomain part of Wealthy Affiliate and it only cost 13.99/year. Now, when you hear that you may think – Wait, I’ve seen it for cheaper (not really) – check out this graphic.
If your desire is to have your own online business, there is NOT a better platform, community, training or support out there to partner with you and your success. Stop letting 10 years go by without seeing a change, and make a change today! I’m here for any questions you may have or anyway I can help!
