Yoonla Review – Does Free Really Mean Free?

Yoonla scam

I recently was told about Yoonla from a friend on Facebook. My Facebook friend knows that I am an affiliate marketer online and wanted to know what I thought about Yoonla. I actually had never heard of it before. So I started to look into it.

The first thing I noticed about Yoonla is that it is free to join. That is pretty awesome but I was thinking there had to be some upsells or cross-selling along the way.

I wanted to look into the company and make sure it was not a scam. Let’s dive right into my full review of Yoonla.

Company: Yoonla

Owner: Reno Van Boven

Rating: 7 out of 10


What is Yoonla?

Yoonla is a website that will teach beginners with zero experience about cost per action (CPA) marketing and affiliate marketing.

CPA marketing is when someone clicks your special link and fills out information about themselves such as name and email, you will earn a few dollars. There is no sale required in this type of marketing.

Affiliate marketing is a form of marketing similar to CPA but in this situation, the person who clicks your link needs to buy that product. When that person does buy the product you earn a commission.

CPA marketing you will not earn as much since you are not selling anything but with affiliate marketing you can earn a lot more depending on which products you promote. Affiliate marketers are paid commissions per sale.


Is everything really free?

When you decide to sign up for Yoonla, all you have to give is your email and password. You will have access to their platform and training.

You might be wondering how in the world does Reno Van Boven make money by teaching people to become internet marketers by giving away all his secrets for free.

To put it frankly, it’s not. The training is free. Reno Van Boven will walk you through step-by-step of his proven process of how to be an online marketer.

You still need to buy some things.

  • Website domain
  • Website hosting
  • Auto Responder
  • Capture page and Leadpages
  • and a few other products Reno uses

It is not 100% percent free. Reno cannot provide you all of these things for free. None of these are terribly expensive.

This is how Reno and Yoonla make money. As he is an affiliate and CPA marketer, as he goes through the training he will show you which services he uses. When you click the links to sign up and use the same services that he does he will make a commission.

This is not an unethical thing to do to. You do not have to use the same ones that he does. He is showing you which ones he likes and uses. You are free to follow his training and use other services.

Training on Yoonla is free. Creating an online business is not free, there are certain things you have to buy.


Training on Yoonla

The training is free and I cannot stress that enough. There are a lot of platforms online that charge you for training. Some charge you an outrageous amount of money for training.

The training is fantastic.

There are video walkthroughs that are done by Reno that will help through each step.

Each step has a few tasks for you to complete before you move onto the next step.

Yoonla has 5 steps that need to be completed.Yoonla Scam

Step 1: Preparation – Understanding Yoonla, set up GetResponce, Fill out the form for GR to Yoonla.

Step 2: Install Software – Registering your domain and getting it hosted.

Step 3: Digital Setup – Setting up lead capture pages and offering a free product for that viewer’s email.

Step 4: Automation – Setting up your GetResponce with automatic emails for more traffic and leads.

Step 5: Traffic Profit Formula – This is the most important part of the Yoonla Training. It is so important that Yoonla has this broken down into 4 different lessons.

The training is a great foundation course. Even if you are a seasoned marketer online it does not hurt to join and listen to another successful affiliate marketer.

It is a great place to start as a beginner and for someone who has skills in this field you should be following other people and seeing what techniques they use. You might want to apply them yourself.

Support on Yoonla

This is the only thing I did not like about Yoonla.

The support on Yoonla is not that great. But can that really be surprising for a system that is teaching you for free?

If you have a problem or an issue on Yoonla, you will need to submit a support ticket. This will take 24-48 hours to get a response once your ticket has been submitted.

Better support on Yoonla would give this program a higher rating. This platform is for beginners and someone who is new to internet marketing is going to have questions.


Pros and Cons of Yoonla

No platform online is perfect but that does not mean it is not worth joining. Sometimes you need to weigh the pros and cons before you join.


  • Solid training
  • step-by-step walkthroughs
  • Trustworthy owner
  • Good way to build your email list
  • potential to earn a lot through his techniques


  • Support is slow
  • Training is limited to only products he uses
  • Getting set up with some of the steps takes Yoonla 1 to 2 days
  • Needs more training on how to promotes products
  • Relies heavily on paid traffic
  • No training on SEO


Verdict on Yoonla

Yoonla is a legit platform. You will not be getting scammed or taken advantage of. To join for free and be able to learn step-by-step is a great option.

I recommend joining Yoonla. There is only a small financial risk to joining.

Yoonla is not the platform that I started with. I started with Wealthy Affiliate. Which is also free to join and you will get 10 free lessons. There is also a paid membership which is $19 the first month and every month after that is $49.

See my #1 recommended platform.

I find Wealthy Affiliate to be a better option for a few reasons.

There is a bigger community of internet entrepreneurs and getting help and support is much easier.

  • There is a live chat for quick answers to questions
  • Support takes only minutes to answer
  • More in-depth training
  • Can start for free also

Yoonla is teaching you how to use paid traffic to build a buyers list and sell products. Wealthy Affiliate is teaching you how to generate organic traffic to your website.

Wealthy Affiliate will teach you more about…

  • Search Engine Optimization
  • Keyword Research
  • Content Creation
  • and building out a fully functional website.


  1. It’s a shame about the lack of support Yoonla gives but I agree, if it’s free there’s nothing to lose and only everything to gain.

    I’m always open to new ideas and love learning, I think it’s important to invest into your self and your education so I will be checking this out, I might learn something! Thanks for sharing your review and experience.

    Wealthy Affiliate also sounds very interesting and I’m intrigued to know what they teach in the 10 free lessons. Everything I’ve read online about Wealthy Affiliate all seems to say the same thing; that there’s a great community of entrepreneurs all helping one another succeed.

    I think this is vital! Sometimes close family or friends don’t always understand entrepreneurship, especially when it comes to online business so having like-minded fellow entrepreneurs you can learn from and bounce ideas around with sounds ideal and it’s something I’m really looking for.

    1. If you go to my full review of wealthy affiliate, you will see exactly what the free lessons include! Thanks for stopping by

  2. Thanks for writing this review on Yoonla, I had never heard of this program before. It’s good to know that this is a legitimate program and the person who designed it isn’t trying to scam you. But based on the cons that you listed I don’t think that I would be willing to give this a try. However, the Wealthy Affiliate program seems promising, how long have you been a member of Wealthy Affiliate? Is there anything that you dislike about it?

    1. Yeah Yoonla is good. Easy way to earn a few dollars with their CPA program too. I have been a member for over 6 months.

      The one thing I do not like is what everyone else loves. I am not huge on the community aspect. I am more about doing my own thing with my website, while It seems the rest of the community is more about helping each other.

      It is not a bad thing but I do wonder if people are actually working on their contect or website or just using WA as a social online hangout.

  3. I have a question. I am new to this online thing. I have no idea what online business I would like to sell. Does Yoonla or Wealthy Affiliate set you up with a product to sell.

    1. Tom,

      Yes, with Yoonla you can earn from promoting Yoonla and you will earn CPA commissions for referrals who join and also if any of your referrals buy any of the recommended products, you will earn a small commission for that too.

      Also, with WA you can promote their platform and earn commissions for referring members to join there also. As for which products online you want to affiliate market, there is a ton of affiliate programs online that are worth joining. So if it is sold online then you can sell it or promote it!

  4. Thanks for the great review of Yoonla, it can get all a little overwhelming when you’re first starting out and your review was so simplistic to follow and it’s hard not to be a sceptic, as there is so much on offer for affiliate marketing, you just dont know which ones are scams and which ones are true.
    I will also be checking out your WA review as well.

  5. Kurtis,
    Thanks for this review. Just one query. Can I start with Yoonla as a free member? Can I promote it and earn as a free member without investing in domain or hosting or any other obligatories?

    1. Sheel,

      Yoonla is free to sign up for, so yes you can. I suppose you could promote Yoonla on social media to your friends and family but your reach is going to be limited. I do not recommend joining Yoonla to only promote Yoonla without following the training as it is designed. I think you will have a hard time and fail. Pull out your wallet and pay for a domain, hosting, autoresponder and so on. Do it right.

    1. Lenin,

      Bradley provided a link to HIS review of Yoonla which was straight hyping of Yoonla and was littered with affiliate links so I removed it. I do not actually believe he is making that much with Yoonla because if he was, he wouldn’t need to spam other blogs with his own links…

  6. Yoonla does a free affiliate program, but unless you complete the training, you will not know that. I joined as a free affiliate at no cost to me at all.

    1. Lori,

      The free affiliate program with Yoonla is contingent on you buying your domain from where Yoonla recommends and also buying GetResponse. Then you have to give Yoonla your ID numbers for them to set it up for you. If you have a domain or a different email responder then you have to pay to become a VIP Yoonla Affiliate.

      1. So basically, if I join as a free member on Yoonla and I decide to promote my affiliate link on social medias and in groups and forums where I am a member and moderator, just to test the waters, I will not get a commission?

        So as a “free” affiliate I need to buy some of their tools before I qualify as a member that can be paid a commission?

        I am not complaining, just trying to understand.

      2. I was a member of the free CPA affiliate program before i decided to upgrade so I think I have a better understanding of it than you do. As a free CPA affiliate, you would receive $2.00 for the tier countries and $1.00 for the tier 2 countries and I DID NOT have to purchase the domain or auto-responder. Unfortunately, the free CPA affiliate was discontinued in July. I’m finding it much easier to get conversions with Yoonla than with Wealthy Affiliate. Even as a VIP member, my monthly Yoonla membership is only 24.99 compared to the 49.00 per month for Wealthy Affiliate Premium.

        For Yoonla VIP membership, if you already have GetResponse, you will only be required to purchase the domain

        The Wealthy Affiliate “starter” membership is basically useless after the first 7 days.

  7. I was once a member of wealthy affiliate, i stop because i couldn’t meet up with the subscription fee…..ever since i have been locked out……how can i reactivate my account?

    1. I covered which products you’ll by with Yoonla
      at WA, you can buy the premium membership for a ton of training and resources and tools. You will also just need to buy an $11 domain name

  8. Sorry but this is a negative comment all about the system.
    I did sign up for the account and it pulls you in for the free access, but as you say you do need to purchase lots of expensive additions for this to work.
    Once you get all of the so called requirements you then need to sign up again for an affiliate account which you need to wait weeks before it is opened..Again once inside you’re told to pay for even more products, including a list of potential buyers. The cost is all expensive and it must be said to date following all I have interjected in this system I have lost out on $1270.00.
    I have used all the email templates and the landing pages. ( I almost forgot your asked to purchase landing pages and this is highly expensive).
    To be honest from my experience its all about his profits from affiliate sales and nothing else.
    I even purchased a product myself to see if the sales bonus would increase..No such thing, and the product I purchased was free online anyway!!

    The whole thing is a huge scam ..
    Its not what it looks like, you d need to watch his boring long videos where he goes on and on..Get to the point!!! ERRR

    Let me experience by your warning..

    1. Going to work is a pyramid scheme. you go to work for a boss and you answer to managers etc…
      Internet marketing is the only way to live. there are more millionaires from online marketing than there are from your everyday job.
      Unless you have experienced Yoonla you don’t know what you are talking about so have no right to criticize it.

  9. Yoonla is a scam, they scam me for 3700 USD and block my account and remove me from there group page! Trying to silence me fast! Stay away from Yoonla! They ban me for the reason i broke the rules but no rules were broke! A lot of people got banned and silence them fast! If you love your time and money stay far away from this company!
