Building and Hosting client sites at WA to pay your membership
When people join Wealthy Affiliate for the first time, they always tend to worry about the membership fee and how they're going to pay it every month. Sure, you can go Yearly and cheapen it, but that's still $300+ over the year.
Here's what I did.
1. Stormed through the OEC course
This ensured I was competent in building and hosting websites to a sufficient standard to market myself.
2. Hustled on getting small website building jobs.
This meant I could then use a pincer-sale technique to either a) build it for the client or b) teach them how to do it themselves. If they chose a) we agreed a price, if they chose b) I introduced them to WA.
Most clients were 'time poor', so got me to do it for them.
3. I then built the sites for them, bought the domains and hosted the sites at WA. I charge them a yearly hosting and maintenance fee, paid in advance.
This then more than covered my WA membership fees, allowing me to 'live for free' here!
Newbies : All it takes is a little lateral thinking! There are really no barriers to succeeding with this platform, just be a little imaginative.
