Today, as promised, I want to highlight some of the differences between free and premium membership at Wealthy Affiliate.
The starter membership at Wealthy Affiliate is totally, 100%, absolutely, unconditionally, FREE. There is no “automatic billing” at the end of the month. There is no pressure to buy any products. There are no conditions of any kind or even a time limit on the free-ness.
You can use the free membership to build a basic niche website on Siterubix. You can host it at WA, blog on it, and even use it to promote products and services. This is a one-of-a-kind setup, that no other company offers.
Then, there is an option to upgrade to a premium membership that gives you access to some pretty awesome stuff.
Lets look at what a premium membership offers.
Wealthy Affiliate Starter VS Premium
Though the Starter membership is free, there are some limitations on it! Here's the rundown of the limitations:
- can only create 2 websites
- can only create subdomains (mywebsite.siterubix.com)
- no live chat after 7 days
- cannot ask questions after 7 days
- no access to “Premium” features (see below)
- no weekly webinars
- no hosting support
The Premium membership has a ton of stuff though. The monthly cost is $49/month, which includes:
- free hosting for up to 25 domains
- newbie friendly hosting support
- WordPress optimized hosting
- weekly webinars with Jay (variety of topics)
- peer review and critique of your website (optional)
- unlimited live chat
- unlimited questions in the forum (AKA classrooms)
- keyword research tool (Jaaxy)
The premium membership, in a nutshell, provides you with everything you need to run your business. You'll never have to buy another “how to make money online” guide. You won't have to go outside the community so search for help. You won't have to pay extra for hosting, or for getting help fixing your website.
Wealthy Affiliate is an all-in-one shop for building your affiliate website. You have to put in the work, but they provide you with all the tools you need to get the job done.
The Price & Value of Wealthy Affiliate
A premium membership costs $49 per month or $359 per year ($29 per month)
What is $49 to you? Can you remember the last $49 you spent?
A half-way decent meal for two at a restaurant these days will cost you almost $50.
A couple of drinks at an upscale bar (including tip, transportation, etc) will definitely cost you more than $40 dollars.
How much do you spend on gas each month? $100? $200?
I took ONE online course last month on real estate. It cost me $95. My motorcycle course cost me $250.
A pair of denim jeans can easily cost you $80.
My gym membership cost $50 per month.
The point I'm trying to make is that we spend money to invest in our health, happiness, hobbies, and entertainment.
Why wouldn't we invest some into our financial freedom?
Let's stop for a second and consider what WA is.
Wealthy Affiliate is education
They are teaching you how to build an online business and earn money online!
To get a bachelors degree in anything these days will cost you at least $20,000 dollars MINIMUM. My brother took out $200,000 in student loans to go to college!
Did you know that the average US salary for college graduates is $46,000?
Many internet marketers make over $60k, or even over $100k per year.
Doesn't it make sense to spend $49/month to learn how to make $100,000 per year?
By investing in your internet marketing education now, you can learn the skills you need to be financially free, forever.
Discounted To Just $19 For Your First Month!
Let's talk about this discount timer that's ticking inside the WA members area.
During these next few days, you will have a chance to get premium access for $19. That's a 59% discount on your first month.
These days a large pizza can cost you $19, so it would be crazy not to spend a couple bucks learning how to build a income-generating online business!
Imagine that. All you need to do is give up one pizza or a couple cups of Starbucks coffees and you could be taking the first step to starting your own business.
Thanks for Taking My Course!
I really hope you learned something during the past week.
You now know how I started out in online business, and have the exact tools I used to quit my job and work at home full time.
I wish you the best of luck in your business endeavors, and hope you are able to achieve all of the personal goals you have set for yourself.
