All the New Changes at WA
Last Update: Nov 10, 2022
So, I thought it would be useful to bring all the changes to the platform together in one simple guide.
You can refer to this when updating your WA reviews and welcome messages, and forward it on to anybody who is giving out the wrong information.
Free Starter Access
The first free lessons have been reduced from 10 to 5.
There is no mention of plugins, keyword research or adding any content.
In fact, free starters no longer have access to Site Content.
Unless they already know how to use WordPress and can submit posts directly, they won't be able to add any content.
At some point, they no longer have any access to Jaaxy, therefore the 30 free searches per month will no longer possible.
I have no idea as to when this will be removed, its part of the new design which is still underway.
However, they do have unlimited access to chat and asking questions which used to be restricted to the first 7 days.
New Upgrade Pricing
The first month discount offer of $19 has been removed.
New members have to pay $49 immediately for the first and subsequent months, or $99 for Premium Plus+.
They can now go straight to annual payments if they wish.
Annual cost for Premium is $497 and for Premium Plus+ it is $697.
The first month now comes with a free domain for Premium and 2 free domains for Premium Plus+.
After the first year, the renewal fee will have to be paid as normal.
Please note - the marketing suggests members only get the free domain if they upgrade within the first 7 days of joining.
According to Kyle, they MAY be offered an extension to this timeframe.
As was the case with the $19 month - it was marketed as only being available for 7 days, but in reality, there was no time limit.
This is still under discussion.
Number of Websites
The number of websites that can be hosted by a premium member will be changing, but not until after the upcoming Black Friday sale.
Free starters can only have one free SiteRubix subdomain.
Currently Premium can host 10 sites, this will be reducing to 5.
Premium Plus+ can host 50 sites, this will be lowered to 10.
Premium $49 + free domain (first month) => $20
Premium Plus+ $99 + 2 Free Domains (first month) => $40
Premium Monthly $49 per month => $23.50 recurring
Premium Plus+ $99 per month => $46.50 recurring
Premium $497 per year => $230 recurring
Premium Plus+ $697 per year => $320 recurring
I hope this helps, thanks for reading!
