Need Some Extra Cash To Afford WA Premium?

Last Update: August 05, 2018

I know a lot of you are looking to get your business started on the free or cheap side. Understandable since you're new to this. WA provides a great platform to do that. You even get your first week completely free of charge. On top of this you end up with the first month at a massive discount.

That first month can be incredibly fruitful for those of you that put your mind to it and really dig into the training. That being said, it is still $19 bucks a few people might not have handy. So while you're mulling over whether or not to invest in WA consider a few of the ways you might be able to pay for that first month (and the ongoing months).

Here are a few simple ways to earn a few extra bucks so you can get your online business going and stay completely debt free:

1. Mechanical Turk

If you've never heard of Mechanical Turk then you're missing out.Mechanical Turk is basically a task outsourcing platform for people/companies. If someone needs a job done they can pop on Mechanical Turk and and post work requests for specific prices. Think UpWork, but less specialized.

Each task is called a Human Intelligence Task and they are mostly associated to some work that must be done on a computer. The jobs range from quality control to tagging items in photos to data validation and cleanup.

The primary reason this type of platform surfaced is that many organizations need to hire one time help and they don't want to onboard a full time employee for a task that only needs to be done one time.

2. Trade in Stuff You Don't Need

Amazon has a robust Trade in Platform where you can take anything you'v epurchased from Amazon (or even from somewhere else) and check it against the list of items they are currently looking for.

You don't pay any shipping, even if they reject the item you send to them. Pretty nice bonus!

Check out Amazon's trade in program.

3. Task Rabbit

Check out Task Rabbit. Task Rabbit will allow you to put any unique skills (even if it is simply you can lift a heavy object) you have to work for a few bucks. Tasks range from things like putting togethre IKEA furniture for those too lazy or too easily frustrated to helping people move at a discounted rate.

Task Rabbit is a great way to earn a few extra bucks that you can then spend on whatever you like! Check out Task Rabbithere.

4. Cut Some Costs

Do you eat happen to eat out often? If so you might want to consider cutting out a few meals out and dedicate that extra cash to a premium membership. It'll start paying for itself quickly, especially if you dedicate the time you would have spent out to building out your web business.

I used to spend on average 10 bucks a day on lunch because I was just too lazy to pack my own. You can easily pack a lunch way cheaper than that each day, and on the bright side it'll likely be 10x healthier than anything you buy out too.

Look for other areas you can cut some costs and you'll easily start finding a way to help build your future by investing in a WA membership.


Can You Really Put a Price On Working For Yourself?

As someone who has spent the better part of 15 years working in Corporate America I can honestly say that you can't easily assign a price to the freedom to work for yourself. The premium membership is not even $2 a day. You can cut it down even further if you're willing to spring for the yearly membership.

Imagine what you can do with your free time once you've got your own home based business up and running. You don't have to wake up to an alarm clock anymore. You're not beholden to anyone. Your business is earning money for you while you sleep.


At the end of the day it is all about where you want to dedicate your time and how you want to prioritize the things that are important to you. If you really want to be successful with an online business then a Wealthy Affiliate premium membership is by far the best place to start.

Hey Craig,
If there's a way you will find it!!! These are some very good tips!! Instead of buying breakfast on my way to work I would pack it and then fix it there. It meant I had to get there a few minutes earlier but I didn't mind. It gave me time to unwind before the busy day began.

Tried and True

Hi Craig,
I enjoyed your post. While I was familiar with Upwork, the other two sites and Amazon’s trade program were new to me...thanks!

Good Morning Craig,

A really nice post with some clever tips included.
To not spend 10 dollars on a lunch but instead to make your own and healthier one is also a good idea.
