Rating: 15/100


This is my personal review of Yoonla, the system that creates a lifestyle you want. First of all I would like to tell you that I have never been a member of this program. I am going to base my review mostly on their website and its contents and for a small part on some other reviews I have read during my research. So, when you read on I will explain to you my low rating of this program and give you a much better (maybe the best) opportunity to make money online.

What is the Yoonla system?

Before making any judgments and opinions I will try to give you an idea of what they are offering you. Yoonla provides an online program that claims to teach you how you can potentially earn an income from Cost Per Action (CPA) affiliate marketing. CPA is an online advertising pricing model where the advertiser pays for a specified action- for example a sale, click, or form submit (e.g., contact request, newsletter sign up, registration etc.).  It basically teaches you what you need in order to build a career as an internet entrepreneur and provide you all the support and training to have what it takes to be successful in this field. 

Mind you, I did not find all these details in their website, because it is simply not there.

Yoonla website

The first thing Yoonla says is that they want to help you building your ultimate digital lifestyle or so they claim. I have tried in vain to find what that is supposed to mean and especially how they have come to know what is good for me. But it may sound good to you, and then again it may not.

Lifestyle platform

Anyway they claim that they created a digital lifestyle platform that will make you a professional in the internet business. And that is about it!  I am sorry to say this ‘information’ could not have been more vague. But even so, they now expect you to sign-up already. And why would you not sign-up, because it is completely free. So, is it? Let us look a little deeper.

Starter membership for free

Indeed you can sign up for your free starter membership and start your trip to your ultimate lifestyle. Do this and you will be off to a flying start! So, what does this kick-start look like? Well, you will receive step-by-step tutorials that show you exactly how to set things up. Oh, I think this means that they will not teach you the business, but only how to install whatever it is they want you to install.

Special discounts

Furthermore they will provide you with materials and special discounts on some of the top digital marketing tools available! I would say that special discounts can only be given when there is a cost involved. But wait a minute, they claimed it was completely free. I guess not so. And why not specify those top online marketing tools anyway?

By now, I already feel very insecure about this system, but let’s see where they take us next. They will urge you to go to the next level, where you really start getting the benefits (as if this one is just inadequate!).

Yoonla elite membership for free?

If you really want to start your internet career, you should join their Elite membership, where you will gain access to more advanced training and marketing materials. More advanced training? On what? How to install more systems? So many promises and nothing specified whatsoever. And you will gain access it says, but I bet you that is not for free. 

Yoonla Elite

Oh, even more than this you will receive exclusive access to the Yoonla Elite Facebook group, so that you will be able to connect with other digital marketers, get tips and advice to help each other succeed as a digital entrepreneur. Again you will have access, but how? Here is what they really want you to do and you won’t find it in their website.


In order to gain all these accesses they force you to sign-up with an auto-responder system, not one you like, but the one they prefer: GetResponse, $15 a month. Furthermore you need to give website hosting to Yahoo Aabaco ($6 a month), also Yoonla mandatory choice. Why? Yoonla is an affiliate for these companies and receives a nice monthly commission for everybody they sign-up!

VIP membership

I like to emphasise that above two memberships only give you access to the online products and the unspecified training programs. But they will not help you move forward in earning an income unless you become a VIP member. As a VIP member you will be allowed access to their affiliate program at an additional cost of a whopping $576. I think you will agree with me that this is a far cry from what you were originally told. And they do not guarantee you anything.


Yoonla provides training and marketing tools, although not specified in detail, to help you earn as a CPA affiliate marketer. Even a novice to this business can start earning money with this system. Again they do not tell you how much this is, therefore I have a suspicion that it will not be much. But no problem, we have the VIP membership giving you the opportunity to earn at least $2 to $5 for every qualified lead. You also get a commission of $10 to $15 for every lead upgrade to VIP membership. 

I think that it is in Yoonla’s interest to pay you, but not more than they will receive from you plus their affiliate commissions.

The meet our team section

This one I particularly like, as you will meet an ace, a superstar, a rock star and a guy. They even show you a picture of these geniuses, although it looks like a picture or painting (see example).who is he?


But how about their credibility? The one is addicted, another one is obsessed, and all of them have something they really like to do. Does that have anything to do with their jobs at Yoonla? Short answer: nothing. I am now even questioning whether they do anything at all for this company. It looks like just a bunch of people, brought together in this site for the single purpose of giving some credibility to Yoonla. We even have a team!

Final thoughts

I am seriously wondering whether Yoonla is only set up as a very nice, but misleading and disguised front, just for them to earn affiliate commissions from other companies. I must say that I admire this bright idea, although I disagree with the cloaked shape in which it was offered.

Like many similar sites such as these, their website home page is the only page although the top menu leads you to think otherwise. The real information about the project, training and support cannot be found and is really lacking. Do they expect you to sign-up based on some vague promises only?

Takes hard work

Being in the internet business myself, I know that it takes years of dedication and hard work to become successful. Telling you virtually nothing about this, does not make me feel very comfortable, let alone make me sign-up for this program.

If you really are interested in becoming a successful internet entrepreneur, then check out my recommendation number 1 below.

My recommendation number 1

In order to make money on the internet you will need the guidance, training and support of professionals for quite a period of time. It would need to be reasonably priced, scam free and fully trustworthy. There is such amake money from home program and it is called Wealthy Affiliate (WA), established in 2005. I have been lucky enough to have come across them and join them in late 2014. You can read all about them in my full review by clicking here. If interested, my review contains a link with which you can join them for one week for FREE and experience this unique opportunity for yourself.

If you have any questions, please leave them in the comment box and I will respond within 24 hours.

  1. I had this recommended to me in an email recently…. I sign up to too many email lists!

    Obviously they were an affiliate of some sort for Yoonla. I always try to find reviews before going down any road that will lead me to losing money.

    After reading your review, I have decided to give the email a miss and probablly unsubscribe too if this is the kind of thing they are promoting.


    • Good for you and it will probably save you a lot of heart aches as well. Maybe they will keep sending you e-mails, but this will stop after some time.

  2. I was looking for a place for a better life but coming for my pocket. It seems that Yoonla is not a good place to start if you’re on a budget like myself. I am very interested in Wealthy Affiliate and willing to try before Yoonla.
    Is Wealthy Affiliate free after one week too?

    • Yes, Wealthy Affiliate is free after one week, in fact you can stay there as long as you like. However, you will not be able to access any further training sessions, chats and ask questions. In other words you will have to do everything by yourself. Better is to sign-up for premium membership, where you could be a member for one month for $19 only and continue the excellent training.

  3. My quest for going into CPA affiliate marketing brought me to this site. After reading, it doesn’t look very legit as it doesn’t seem to offer anything concrete. But I am still keen on learning about CPA as an alternative business model for my blog.

    Are there any sites that you would recommend for that? Thanks.
