Wealthy Affiliate (WA) has now been around for 14 years, as the leader in affiliate marketing training, and so much more. They have only two options for membership, and none of those ridiculous upsells everyone else sticks you with. I have already reviewed the full WA program and the free starter membership. Today I want to tell all about the Wealthy Affiliate Premium Membership, and why it is easily the best way to go if you are serious about starting your own online business.
CLICK HERE to read a great recent Blog from the creator of WA that explains how they lead the industry and will continue to lead the industry for many years to come.
Let’s get started!
What is the WA Premium Membership?
The Premium Membership at WA is the ultimate all-in-one affiliate marketing training and web hosting membership that I have found anywhere. It includes everything that WA has to offer, which I will be discussing in this article.
Premium membership provides you with everything you will ever need to start and build your online business. You get web hosting, an awesome support community, the best training around including video training along with plenty of textual information. You will get to join weekly webinars on subjects related to online marketing that will help you take your online business to the next level. You can ask questions of the very knowledgeable community and you can join the online chat for instant help.
You get so much more with premium than with the starter membership.
Why is Premium Membership far Better than the Free Starter Membership?
First of all, how many other sites will let you try their product for Free? Not many, if any. The free starter membership is why I chose WA in the first place. You get to try it out and decide for yourself if you like it before you fork out a penny. No CC needed to try it out.
The Free Starter membership is awesome for starting the training and getting a feel for what WA is all about. You get quite a bit of training and even create your first website for free. You can keep your free site for 6 months while you learn and decide if you want to go premium. Anyone serious about online business will want to become a Premium member. If you are not interested in dedicating yourself to the process of affiliate marketing and creating an online business to eventually replace your JOB (Just Over Broke), then the premium is probably not for you.
Let’s have a look at the big differences between the two memberships.
What are the differences in the Starter and Premium Memberships?
NOTE: Changes are coming to Wealthy Affiliate on March 16, 2020, that will make changes to the table below. CLICK HERE to see the awesome updates that are coming.
There are too many differences for me to spell out, so here is a great comparison chart:
As you can see in the above chart, Premium Membership is pretty awesome. It says $49 a month, but as a starter, if you become a premium member in the first 7 days, you will only pay $19 for the first month. This is a great Bonus the WA owner gives us to offer you.
Can you believe you can create 50 websites as a Premium member? Where else can you do that? I only have two so far, because you will need to create a lot of content for each site, and that does keep you busy.
You get all the available training, plus the members have created a ton of additional training themselves to give you even more information on things like SEO and email campaigns.
If you want to learn how to promote online money-making opportunities, Premium gets you into the Affiliate Bootcamp Training, where you will get intensive training to get your site going full speed ahead.
The full-time technical support and community are second to none. You can get any questions answered 24 hours a day, no matter where you are in the world, and site support knows what they are doing.
The premium training also includes tons of live video training, along with plenty of walkthrough videos for each training section.
And yes, you can earn affiliate commissions while you are learning. But don’t expect big money right away. This is not a get-rich-quick scheme. It requires dedication to the process, and a lot of time and hard work, just like starting any new brick and mortar business would.
For doing keyword research, which is critical to creating great headlines for your content, WA created the best keyword research tool on the planet, called Jaaxy. As a premium member, you automatically get Jaaxy lite, which is all you will ever need. It provides you with unlimited searches, while you only get 30 with the starter membership.
I know, this all sounds great but what is it all going to cost me?
What Does the Premium Membership Cost?
As I mentioned above, the normal monthly price for a Premium Member is $49 a month. There are several ways to get some great discounts on the monthly fee.
You can go yearly and save a ton of money, or you can pay some upfront and then pay the rest in 6 months.
Here is a chart of the current payment options, with the Yearly plan selected:
Want to save even more on the yearly membership, every year there is a Black Friday sale of $299 for the next year. Great savings and once you do the Black Friday deal, it renews at that rate every year. You just can’t beat that for everything you get at WA.
So broken down, if you pay monthly, it will cost you $588 a year.
Pay in 6 months with a down payment of $234 and $39 a month and it costs you almost $470. Better than Monthly.
Pay yearly a fee of $359 and you save $229 a year. Wow!
Black Friday is the best deal at $299, which saves you $289 a year off the Monthly plan.
Whatever choice you make will be automatically charged so you should never need to worry about missing a payment.
You will have to purchase a domain if you don’t have one, but they start at very low prices and, WA hosts the site(s) for you and takes care of your site speed and all the security you will ever need.
What are the Benefits of the Premium Membership?
There are so many benefits, I am providing you with a link to my Premium Membership Benefits, which you will also receive as a Premium Member.
CLICK HERE to see all the amazing benefits of Premium Membership for yourself. Almost hard to believe, but it is very real. No other training platform will provide you with all this and more is coming as WA continues to innovate this platform for all of us.
Should I Start for Free or Get right Into the Premium Benefits?
I tried the program for free myself, and I liked what I saw, so I became a Premium Member within the first seven days. I liked the discount for that first month.
I do recommend you give it a try for free to make sure this is what you want to do. If you like it, and I think you will, go Premium and get all the amazing benefits.
The following information is very important for deciding whether to try the starter membership of go right to Premium because some countries are not allowed to try Wealthy Affiliate with the starter membership and some countries are banned for clear reasons.
The following countries are unable to join Starter, but they can join as Premium right away:
- Viet Nam
The following countries are unable to join Premium, even as a paid Premium member. This is due to high fraud rates and our decision to do this has been based on millions of data points:
Summary – Premium Membership is the Only Way to Go!
Free Wealthy Affiliate Membership is great for checking out this awesome platform, and when you are ready to get serious and take your online business to the next level, Premium Membership is the only way to go.
