Why can't wealthy affiliate be a free all the time?

They're a lot people wondering about the cost of wealthy affiliate. What if it was wealthy affiliate was Free. Would you be more successful in achieving your dream? Would you be more interested in learning how to build your business?

My guess would be probably not. You'll probably be in the same situation wishing you could be where you are right now. If wealthy affiliate was Free you would never learn anything. Because you would never invest the time.

Ok, let me make it a little clearer. If I gave you a free tape on how to on Micheal Jordon greatest shots. You wouldn't watch it. But if you had to pay for it... Then you will watch it and learn from it because you have made an investment.

Wealthy Affiliate is an investment you made when you first joined.

Now that you've made the investment, now you're going to put the time and effort to learn how to become successful. You're going to do what it takes to create the lifestyle you have been dreaming. Because you have invested in yourself, now you're going to learn and watch the training courses over and over again until you succeed.

Think about this question honestly

Do you think you would be where you are, if Wealthy Affiliate was Free? Really...

The problem Anthony is that too many people want things given to them for free in their lives. Be given something without having to earn it. Those people need a reality check because the world does not operate that way.

Kyle and Carson are business men. Could any rational thinking individual believe that these two men would provide everything in their entire program for free and to anyone who would want to join?

Besides which, the psychology of being handed something for free, in this case the entire WA training, tools, etc., would not guarantee success for most individuals. In fact as they would never have to invest one penny into the venture in that scenario most likely they would also not take it seriously.

Having to pay for something, in this case for the premium level membership psychologically should spur that individual on to achieve positive results with his/her online business. The individual would be motivated to achieve success based on the fact that he/she invested money into the business.

People value things that are paid for. I think it makes us feel like we have something others do not, so it's special. It's only money! Lol. Debbie

When people don't pay for it they take it for granted, if they pay for it they look at it differently.
Well said.

I honestly don't know if I would respect the company as much if it was free. What I gain now and what I gain in the future will far outweigh the monthly monetary commitment.

Thanks for sharing, Tony!

I totally agree that there is more of a commitment when one has a monetary investment in something, and honestly the cost for WA is so reasonable for the value, I am amazed at how much I have learned in a short time. I looked at a couple of other programs and feel like they didn't offer any more than WA and were about 3 times the cost. For me it was a no brainer to sign up as a premium member after spending a few days on the site.

Well, Wealthy Affiliate is actually free, for those that don't want to spend the extra buck a month or a year and you can very well run your site and do some stuff.

You however, cannot interact all that much, learn more on the course and host domains.
Apart from that an investment will motivate you, so are there also plenty of services that come with this business that need to be paid for. And I am not even talking about the domain, but more about the hosting for each and every site you have here. All the services such as email as well.

It is all run in the cloud and costs money per site per minute. Professional hosting costs more money for one site. So you can be lucky to have it all here for one price.

That said, I do agree that the investment does motivate me to work. I also got an account at edx, a learning platform for all sorts of themes. Do I study there? nope!

Do I work on my site here and study here? Oh yes!

I had a Billy the Bass once. It was a mindless purchase which collected dust. In hindsight I would of never got it free or for money. At least here you have training. Whether it works or not is up to us but I keep in mind we live in tough times. Many are trying the same thing online. If you do the same you will just be another number that fails eventually. You have to be original, not just another number in the competition to succeed.

It is a proven fact in life and business. Offers at more valued and the results more successful if there's an investment involved! besides there is overhead not the least is the cost of Jay's excellent instruction and the servers at site support!

Interesting but knowing myself, I will not be here now if WA was free.I would have moved on to shiny objects to look for a quick fix.

Hey Anthony, Very true. The old saying "easy come easy go" is very true. If you did not pay for WA then you would attach no value to it and would let it slide. I hope a lot of newbies read this.

We invest in so many other things that does not fully add to our success, ie unhealthy foods, clothes and shoes we don't necessarily need, etc, so it should be a no brainer to invest in something that will directly impact it. I agree with your post 100%. Money is a huge motivator and why not pay for the work and effort many people have done and put in in order to create such a wonderful place dedicated to creating a better life for yourself?

I understand where you're heading. When you've paid for it, you want to get most worth out of your payment and will study as much as you can to make your investment pay off
